Release Blitz: The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard

The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard (Paranormal Princes #1) by Charlie Cochet Date Released: September 19, 2019
About The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard Prince Owin Being a fierce predator—not at all adorable, despite my graceful stature—the last thing I needed was a bodyguard. Especially a wolf shifter, whose presence alone was an insult to my princely principles. As Prince of the Ocelot Shifters, I prided myself on my infallible feline instincts, uncompromisable dignity, and flawless fashion sense. If having a canine follow me around at all times wasn’t bad enough, I now faced the most important moment of my entire life. The time had come to prove I was worthy of my crown. If only I could find a way to get rid of the pesky bodyguard.
Grimmwolf When the King of All Shifters asked me to guard Prince Owin, I admit I had no idea what to expect. Cat shifters tend to be a little intense, not to mention kinda cranky. Owin was no exception, though he seemed crankier than most. Being his bo…

Review: The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard by Charlie Cochet (Paranormal Princes #1)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Vibrant Promotions.
When Charlie Cochet announced that she had a new series in the offing, I may or may not have--definitely, absolute, undoubtedly MAY HAVE!--done a happy dance. I've been in love with this author's storytelling from the moment I started listening to her THIRDS series middle of last year. Since then, I've slowly worked my way through the rest of her work, having loved enjoyed her Four Kings Security series as well as Love and Payne, Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts, and Kept in the Dark (the first in her new Locke and Keyes Agency series). Now, she's delving back into paranormal romance with her Paranormal Princes series, kicking things off quite nicely with the first book, a novella featuring a diva-ish ocelot shifter prince and his patient wolf shifter bodyguard ordered on a quest.

Prince Owin of the Ocelot Shifters was not a happy prince, not when he had a bodyguard who just so happened…

Book Spotlight: Rustic Hearts by Amber Kelly

Rustic Hearts (Poplar Falls #1) by Amber Kelly Date Released: September 16, 2019
About Rustic Hearts The last place Sophia Lancaster wanted to return to was Poplar Falls. It’s the place that holds all the painful memories and unanswered questions she’s ever had. One phone call causes her life to take a turn, forcing her back to the town she hasn’t stepped foot in over twenty years.
And right into the path of Braxton Young.
His blue eyes, sinful smile, and rough exterior are no match for Sophia. She’s there for one reason, and it isn’t to fall in love. The sooner she can get out of this small town and back in New York City—the better.
However, fate doesn’t care for either of their desires. Instead, they’re forced to deal with each other, finding their differences aren’t as great as they thought. Each day brings them closer to friendship and the possibility of something more. The answers she seeks might not only break her and Braxton apart but also her heart.

Review: Rustic Hearts by Amber Kelly (Poplar Falls #1)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wordsmith Publicity.
Amber Kelly starts off her brand-new Poplar Falls series with Rustic Hearts. This novel features a woman who returns to the small Colorado town she once considered home, Poplar Falls, to mourn the passing of her paternal grandmother and unexpectedly discovers love, forgiveness, and family in the process. I read Kelly's debut release, which was a duet that had a bit of a heavier feel to it--darker with a hint of suspense--so I was very pleasantly surprised by how this new series starter of hers had a lighter touch with enough angst to keep the addict in me rather satisfied. I enjoy small town romances in general because they are, more often than not, about heart and home, and readers get these in impressive form with this still relatively new author's recently published romance.

When Sophia Doreen Lancaster was twelve, her mother told her they would be leaving their ranch in Poplar Falls, Co…

Release Blitz: Flash Rip by Keira Andrews

Flash Rip by Keira Andrews Date Released: September 19, 2019
About Flash Rip The most dangerous current is between them.
Training to be a lifeguard at an Australian beach is tough work, but Cody Grant loves a challenge. He spends long days in the sun and surf rescuing swimmers from treacherous rip currents while trying not to lust after senior lifeguard Liam Fox—who is deeply, painfully closeted. 
Liam was supposed to be a football legend. Now in his mid-thirties, it’s been over a decade since his dream shattered along with his knee. Fans still recognize him regularly, and he's terrified his sexuality will be discovered and his conservative parents will reject him. He has strict rules to protect his secret and keeps everyone at arm’s length. Liam never acts on his need to surrender after being shamed for it years ago by the first and only man he trusted. 
Out and proud Cody fascinates Liam—and tempts him to break all the rules.
Cody is practically half Liam's size and age, but has …

Release Blitz: No Saint by Rie Warren

No Saint (Blood Legion MC #3) by Rie Warren Date Released: September 16, 2019
About No Saint To him, she’s absolutely irresistible. To her, he’s nothing but bad news. When their fates collide, the only thing they have in common is destined to tear them apart.

With a rap sheet about as long as the inked sleeves on my arms, I’ve been a misfit with a questionable track record. But I’ve fought for and found a home with the Blood Legion MC. Through thick and thin, brawls and bloodletting, I’ve created a rep: I’m the man.

I’m the man, and HonorĂ©’s the only woman I want. This obsession with her is irrational and stupid considering she’s prickly, pissed off with me before I can even make a move, and definitely not my type. Except the beautiful New Orleans street busker takes my breath away—all untapped passion simmering just beneath the surface.

Something much darker simmers just beneath the surface of her life too.

Being someone’s old lady is the last thing on my mind. Been there, done…
