PUSHING HER LUCK
Lucky in Love #1
Audra North
Releasing May 9th, 2016

 
He says she’s a nuisance. She thinks he’s a jerk. Together they might be the perfect match.

Riordan Faraday is about to reach his breaking point. He’s got art classes to teach, a needy mum to care for, and most importantly, a painting to finish. But without time or inspiration, he hasn’t been able to paint a thing and it’s driving him mad. So when a silly American girl shows up on his doorstep with a wild proposal, he shoots her down perhaps a bit more harshly than she deserves…but it’s for the best. He can’t afford any more distractions at the moment, especially not beautiful brown-eyed ones.

Samantha Meyer—Sam, to her friends—is on a mission to find her late grandmother’s necklace. The long-lost piece of jewelry is the only thing she has left of Gram and Sam is determined to see that dream fulfilled before she returns home to New Jersey and takes up the reins of the family business. But she wasn’t counting on a sexy, surly painter to stand in her way.

Blog Tour: The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood

 

Square Root Summer Blog Tour Banner

The Square Root of Summer releases today, and I’m geeked to be part of the blog tour. 

The Square Root of Summer focuses mainly on change.  How Gottie changed from one day to the next because of the loss of her grandfather, and how she changed from one summer to the next because of all of the other losses in her life.  The loss of her first love, her best friend, her ability to communicate.  Unfortunately, some of Gottie’s losses are self-inflicted.  Her grief is so intense that she doesn’t know how to deal with it, and it morphs into grief over other losses, so she doesn’t even know what she’s grieving for.  She also has all of this guilt to reconcile herself with, and she understandably has a difficult time processing all of the emotions and changes in her life.

Review: A Surprise for the Sheikh by Susan M Anderson

May Contain Spoilers

I have loved several of Sarah M Anderson’s books in the past, so I was eager to get my hands on A Surprise for the Sheikh.  My local library obliged by purchasing a copy, so I checked it out with a great deal of anticipation.  I was disappointed when this book didn’t work for me.  I thought the hero was a big old zero, and his poor behavior definitely required a lot more groveling to make up for all of the grief he caused.
