What a happy day! I discovered a plethora of Harlequin manga on Scribd! I love reading these, but I don’t like buying them, because I can read one in less than an hour. Needless to say, my subscription at Scribd just became even more of a value. There are tons and tons of these there, so I’ll be contentedly squeezing them into the review schedule. Just as an FYI, the site just added comics from Marvel, IDW, Dynamite, and others, so if you enjoy comics, check out their selection. I’m not a collector (anymore), I just want to read them, so the subscription based system works great for me and takes up less room in my house! Read more
I actually wanted to read Worth the Risk before Claudia Connor’s other book, Worth the Fall, was even on my radar. I saw that the heroine was a hippotherapist, and that’s all I needed to see. I didn’t even read the blurb beyond “one therapeutic horseback ride at a time.” Yup, throw a random horse reference in there, and I’m on board. But then Worth the Fall was highly recced to me, and despite my aversion to all of those kids, I read it. And loved it. And I loved Worth the Risk more! So the author is now on my auto read list.

Fire Me Up
Pine Mountain # 4

Releasing January 27, 2015
IF YOU CAN’T STAND THE HEAT…
Teagan O’Malley can handle a crisis. She’s a paramedic, it’s her job. But she never expected to land in the kitchen of her father’s pub, with no notice, no cash, and no room for error. The kitchen is not her favorite place. Lucky for her, she just scraped a bad-boy chef off the pavement after a motorcycle accident—and something about him says he can turn up the heat in more ways than one.
Adrian Holt has had a rough few years, and he’s not eager to get tangled up in anything more complicated than a good risotto. But with a broken arm and a head full of bad memories, he needs a challenge to keep him sane. Teagan’s dare-me attitude and smoldering mess of a bar are just what the doctor ordered. And the two of them together might cook up some even better medicine… Read more
The Lone Sheriff caught my attention because the heroine, Maddie, is a Pinkerton agent, much to Sheriff Jericho Silver’s dismay. He’s having a hard time catching the Tucker gang, a violent band of outlaws with a long list of crimes to their credit. Jericho is expecting help from an experienced Pinkerton agent, but when Maddie steps off the train from Chicago, he feels like he’s been blindsided. No way can a city slicker lady help him apprehend the bad guys. Sorry, Jericho, you are about to have your world turned on its axis. Read more

Seashell Bay # 1

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. Read more

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.
