“The perfect weekend getaway: crafting, food and a murder or two!” —New York Times bestselling author Lynn Cahoon

As the head of a bustling crafting retreat, Cora Chevalier could use a break of her own. So she and her creative cohorts temporarily swap small-town Indigo Gap for the Sea Glass Island Craft Retreat, where they teach classes and create beachy crafts like shell mosaics and sea glass chimes. Cora and her boyfriend Adrian are enchanted by their surroundings—especially the stunning wedding and blissful newlyweds they encounter on the beach. But awe becomes shock when the bride turns up dead the next day . . .

The woman’s death appears to be the result of a severe jellyfish sting. But when it’s revealed that she was murdered and Adrian becomes a suspect, Cora must hitch the real culprit to the crime—and fast. Because it just might take everything she has to crack a case more twisted than her most complex macramé knot!
 
Includes crafting tips!

No cowboys allowed. That is Stacy Smith’s motto. Having overcome a rough childhood, she vows to not repeat the same mistakes that her mother made. Writing bestselling romance novels as Sabrina Noelle, she is happy to stay in her ivory tower, creating perfect worlds for her heroes and heroines that keep her busy and her heart whole.

Texas Ranger Davis McKenna handles crisis situations on a regular basis. But when he is stranded in a hotel elevator with a gorgeous woman on the verge of panic, he soon realizes that there’s more at play than just his protective instincts.

Take one determined Texas Ranger and one equally stubborn romance author and there is bound to be a showdown at high noon where desires and hearts are concerned. Can Stacy risk opening her heart to the man who represents everything she never wanted?

 

 

Lisa Tuesday Book Review – Book 3 in this series. But can be read as alone book- which I did. Stacy Smith is a best selling romance author who meets Davis in a stuck elevator. This meeting changes both there lives – she wants nothing to do with cowboys and he can’t forget her. But both of these people will come together in a great book featuring another hot Texas Ranger.  Lisa

A pregnant young woman shows up at the Billodeaux ranch looking for Teddy, the handicapped adopted son of the family. Turns out Ella Sue Smalls is his half-sister looking for a place to stay until her baby is born. Good-hearted Teddy offers shelter at his very modest apartment. Though he will never be a member of the Sinners football team like his brothers, he is fiercely independent and earns his way as a freelance sports announcer and writer.

Ella has arrived at an awkward time for her brother; Teddy had just reconnected with a former cheerleader he had a crush on in high school. Injured in a tragic accident, Jessica Minvielle is hopeless and bitter about her life confined to a wheelchair. She reaches out to Teddy for help to live a full life again and salvage her career as a sports trainer. He is only too glad to show her what a man and a woman in wheelchairs can do. But, will the scheming Ella Sue come between them and ruin their chance at love?

 

Lisa Book Club Review – This is book 4 in the Sinner’s Legacy series. And it’s Teddy book . When his half- sister show up pregnant and looking for help Teddy offers her help. But in the mist of that Teddy falls for Jessica a friend from high school that has been hurt. This is a lovely  book with lots of heart with the whole Sinner family involved. You could read this as alone book but I think you would enjoy the whole Sinner series which is set in Louisiana with the first family of football. Lisa

In the third book of Heather Heyford’s series, set in Oregon’s wine country, a returning war hero and his “friend with benefits” discover that some vintages only improve with time . . .
 
Uncorking the Truth
 
When the town of Clarkston, Oregon, welcomes Captain Sam Owens home from the service, Sophia “Red” McDonald is first in line. The sassy psychotherapist has known Sam since they were kids, and the grown-up Sam is darned near irresistible. With his abs of steel and those gorgeous hazel eyes, he could have any woman he wanted. Naturally, Red is thrilled when he takes her hand . . .

She’s a modern woman, happy to canoodle with the sexy soldier, no strings attached—until her heart changes the rules. Suddenly, after months of casual hookups, Red finds she wants more. She longs to possess Sam body and soul. But his warrior’s heart was wounded long before he joined the service. As a therapist, Red has ways of making him talk. Only if Sam opens up and spills his secrets can they finally have everything their hearts desire . . .

 

Lisa’s Tuesday Book Review – is this 3rd book in this Contemporary Romance series.  I missed book 1-2 and was able to pick up with the story and characters just fine. But I would definitely read the other books -so you get the full background of the story of Sam and Red. Both of this characters were great but Sam had some secrets he needed to work out. But Red is a capable female lead and a perfect match for head strong Sam. This book was a wonderful read and I strongly recommend it with a glass of wine.  Lisa

A KINDLE UNLIMITED FREE BUNDLE

Buy Book    99 cents

Enjoy 4 Standalone books in this bundle.
NO CLIFFHANGERS.
VERY STEAMY. You’ve been warned!
Oh, I must add – it’s HILARIOUS too 😉

Four men with love and seduction on their minds. Four women who’ve vowed to stay single and free.

Crazy in love
I loved Blain George the moment he looked at me and tried to get me into his pants. He’s smart, funny and the sexiest man I have ever met. So yeah, I love him and I have given him my all. Every single part of me, even my crazy family who are more likely to kill him than not. I did give him my all until he took that love and crushed it beneath his thousand dollar boot heel. He wants me back? He’ll have to prove to me he’ll do anything to get me, even if he has to be crazy for this love.

Madly in love
Grayson George is a spoilt little rich by with delusions of grandeur and a backend that makes my knees weak with longing. I resisted. I fought. Heck, I even told my mama I’d move back home just to stop myself from wanting more than I should. But I should have known better than to taunt a man like Gray. Waking up married, with no recollection of how I got that way isn’t what frightens me. It’s the fact that when he touches me and makes me his, I am madly in love too.

Wildly in love
I have cheated, lied and done everything in my power for Tyson Fox to see me and know that we belong together. I want him so much and yet when his ex comes back into the picture and has him rethinking a relationship, I know, sometimes even cheating won’t get me the win. Sometimes, you have to leave the field and be the prize instead.

Recklessly in love
I finally stopped running and gave all of myself to Russell Mark. He’s my ideal. My heart. The only man I even look at anymore. And he’s left me all alone because as he’s proven over and over again, I’m poor second to his priorities. I love him. But I won’t long for a man who can’t see me for all I am.

Book Review- I downloaded this bundle thinking why not? And I must say that it was great. I spent most of the time laughing at the characters in these books. 

Here’s the basic 4 Billionaires have been friends forever, When the first one falls instantly in love he brings his three friends along and they fall in love with her three friends. But it;s not an easy road. There’s road blocks but each work out to a happy ending. But getting to that ending is whats so fun to read- Each book brings a fun set of characters that I see my own big loving family in. Read this bundle and get read to Laugh out loud.  Lisa 

Review – Baited by Jackie Ivie

 

51RZP5Z58wL

In the shadowy realm between dark and light, survival doesn’t always go to the strongest. Most are hunters. Some are prey. And a select few…are both.

Jezebel has a dark past and darker secrets. She’s known as a man-hater. Cold. Calculating. Vicious. But nobody ever asked her why.
Adam Ballantine doesn’t do death defying stunts just to make a living. He’s addicted to the thrill. The closer he gets to death, the more he likes it.

When Jezzie gets the assignment, it looks clean. Easy. In and out. She should have been warned. Adam is exactly what she doesn’t need – a bad boy with a bad rep. Worse, he won’t quit tempting fate. Nothing scares this guy.

Except this time, the stakes are different.
Someone is really trying to kill him.
And Adam is making it easy for them…

Review Book 2 of this new series. Baited revolves around the Dark Angel Jezebel and her charge Adam. Adam is a dare devil adrenaline junkie and when Jezzie  saves him its a routine job but is it. Someone is after Adam and this Dark Angel can save him or maybe he can save her. Another great book from this author and another great series to sink your teeth in. Book 1 – Hunted starts the series of.  Lisa
