YOU CAN’T STOP A RISING TIDE

When Lily Doyle spots her high school crush Aiden Flynn on the inbound ferry, she knows trouble is about to dock in Seashell Bay. And not just because he’s more handsome than ever. If Aiden’s in town, the rumors must be true about his family’s plan to sell their coastal land to the highest bidder. But Lily will do whatever it takes to convince the hottest guy on the beach to protect their idyllic island home.

Gorgeous Lily Doyle was the only thing Aiden missed after he escaped from his hometown to play pro baseball. Now all Aiden wants is to wrap up the business deal and get back to his life, not relive a past that still haunts him. But as memories rush in about the night of passion he and Lily shared long ago, everything else washes right out to sea-everything except the desire that still burns between them.

Post 6: A Heroine with a Cause

Title: TAKING FIRE by Lindsay McKenna:  A heroine with a cause

One of the hallmarks of my writing, as my loyal readers will agree with, is that I write ‘fresh.’  Well, what does that mean?  It means I’m not writing what everyone else is writing.  I want to write from different slants and perspectives than are normally thought of to write from.  

I wanted to create a heroine who was not a SEAL, but worked in deep black ops.  This is an area that few can write about except those who have been in the military, or who have great military consultants who can give them useful information in defining and creating a character who is in this super secretive area of undercover work.

The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Heat Wave Edition

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

Last week was all about the snow.  Ugh!  About 20 inches of the stuff!  Most of it fell on Sunday, and then we got another dumping on Wednesday. We couldn’t get out of our driveway on Monday, let alone our subdivision, so we took a snow day – which involved actually moving snow out of the way so we could get our cars out.  I was also able to read, so it was a nice, unexpected break.

Review: The Millionaire Rogue by Jessica Peterson

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I liked The Millionaire Rogue so much better than Jessica Peterson’s debut effort,  The Gentleman Jewel Thief!  It takes place in the same time frame as the first book in the series, through Thomas Hope and Sophia’s POV. I liked Hope so much better than Harclay, and Harclay was my major sticking point with the last book.  He’s such a selfish sot that I had a hard time seeing him as a romantic lead.  He didn’t behave in a manner expected of heroes, and his reasons for behaving so badly were nonsensical.  It made me feel better every time Hope referred to his nemesis in a derogatory way, because somebody needed to call the jerk out for his poor behavior!
