New Release + Blog Tour: Hidden Waters by Catherine Cowles

“Everything amazing about a small town romance…family, secrets, old wounds, unforgettable connections, plus the sweetest love story that had my heart soaring. An absolute must read! Addie and Beckett were magic together!”–A.L. Jackson New York Times Bestselling Author

Hidden Waters, an all-new touching and heartfelt friends to lovers, small-town romance from bestselling author Catherine Cowles, is now available!

My family tried to break me. But, somehow, I made it out alive, even though the wounds from that survival are forever carved into my bones. Now, my only wish is for…normal. To know what it’s like to have friends, a job, a home.

The last thing I want is for my new roommate to see the scars I’m so desperate to keep hidden, especially not the ruggedly handsome man who steals my breath and sends my heart into overdrive.

But something tells me that Beckett has demons, too. I see it in the shadows haunting his gorgeous eyes and the way he looks at me with gentle understanding.

As our unlikely friendship becomes so much more, forces from my life slink out of the shadows. And we could both lose everything we’ve fought so hard for—down to our very last breaths…

“You deserved so much better.”

“I’m getting it. I’m making that beautiful life now. And I’ll appreciate it so much more because of what I’ve been through.”

It wasn’t enough for me. It never would be. But I admired how Addie could view her past. I struggled not to hold her too tightly. The urge to burn the world down around me was too strong. I wasn’t good the way Addie was. I still wanted to start with Allen.

“Beckett,” she whispered against my ear. “I’m okay. It doesn’t hurt. The skin is ugly but—”

I reared back. “Nothing about you is ugly.”

Her cheeks flamed. “It is. It’s just facts. I don’t care. There are so many more important things.”

“Show me.” I was already climbing to my feet.

“W-what?”

“Show me.”

Addie stood shakily. “I don’t want you to see it.”

My gaze locked with hers. I poured everything I was feeling into that one look. “Please.”

She didn’t say anything for a moment, searching my face for something. Then she nodded and turned around. Slowly, so painfully slowly, she unbuttoned her blouse. When she was done, she simply stood there, not lowering the shirt. Her ribs expanded and contracted in ragged breaths. Then she let the fabric fall to the floor.

Angry slashes crisscrossed her back. They were varying tones, shapes, and depths. In that moment, I knew Allen had done this to her over and over. My hands fisted so tightly I was in danger of breaking a knuckle.

I moved closer and then sank to my knees again. “It’s just me.” My hands went to Addie’s hips. She gave a slight jolt. I stilled. “You okay?” She nodded, the movement jerky, her breaths ragged. I slowly swept my thumb across a patch of raised skin. Then I bent forward, my lips going to the worst of the scars. I ghosted them over the flesh that had been torn apart but had come back together stronger than it had been before.

“Beauty in the strength that carried you through. Beauty in how you refused to be broken. Beauty that you never let yourself become cruel like him. Addie, there isn’t a thing about you that isn’t beautiful.”

New Release + Release Blitz: Delighted by Lexi Blake

If they make it through the storm, love will just be the icing on the cake…

Delighted, an all-new spicy and intriguing novella set in the Masters and Mercenaries world from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake and 1,001 Dark Nights, is available now!

Brian “Boomer” Ward believes in sheltering strays. After all, the men and women of McKay-Taggart made him family when he had none. So when the kid next door needs help one night, he thinks nothing of protecting her until her mom gets home. But when he meets Daphne Carlton, the thoughts hit him hard. She’s stunning and hardworking and obviously in need of someone to put her first. It doesn’t hurt that she’s as sweet as the cupcakes she bakes.

Daphne Carlton’s life revolves around two things—her kid and her business. Daphne’s Delights is her dream—to take the recipes of her childhood and share them with the world. Her daughter, Lou, is the best kid she could have hoped for. Lou’s got a genius-level intelligence and a heart of gold. But she also has two grandparents who control her access to private school and the fortune her father left behind. They’re impossible to please, and Daphne worries that one wrong move on her part could cost her daughter the life she deserves.

As Daphne and Boomer find themselves getting closer, outside forces put pressure on the new couple. But if they make it through the storm, love will just be the icing on the cake because family is the real prize.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

New Release + Release Blitz: Lighthouse Way by Kristen Proby

 

Luna Winchester’s life is firmly entrenched in the coastal town of Huckleberry Bay, Oregon. A fourth-generation lightkeeper, Luna is carrying on the Winchester tradition by tending to the lighthouse. Plus, she’s decided to renovate a long-abandoned building on the property and make it a B&B, Luna’s Light. Surrounded by family and her two childhood best friends, her life is full.

Wolfe Conrad is in hiding, and he’s come to Huckleberry Bay to heal. A career-ending accident on the track nearly took his life, and now he seeks refuge to try and build a new one. The quaint town’s slow pace rattles the man whose first love is fast cars–and then there’s the beautiful innkeeper, who rattles him in different ways.

Falling in love with Luna definitely isn’t part of Wolfe’s plan. Local legends that tell of unrequited love and despair? Unbelievable. But stranger things have happened, like two strangers falling in love…

Tracey’s Review

Author Kristen Proby has a whole new world for us, and I couldn’t be happier. LIGHTHOUSE WAY, the first book in Kristen’s new Huckleberry Bay series, is just what I would expect from Kristen, and absolutely what I wanted. Friends to lovers, small town, a touch of the paranormal, LIGHTHOUSE WAY is the first in a series of stories that show that you absolutely can go home again, and that it’s probably going to be even better the second time around.

That Luna is a strong woman all on her own., and that she is more than willing to let Wolfe know just what she needs, is wonderful. It’s refreshing to have characters that are just as capable solo as they are as a couple. Luna and Wolfe are friends that have lived fulfilling lives separately, and are able to come together now, knowing what they they want. It will be wonderful seeing them in upcoming stories, as their lives continue to evolve.

I already love Luna and her girl gang, as well as Wolfe and the guys. Kristen’s ability to write friend groups that draw readers in and make them feel like they’re part of the fun is well-established, and she’s in her element here. The love and familiarity between Luna, June, and Sarah, along with new friends, are going to, I know, make for some fun times and great conversations as the series goes on.

Fans of Kristen’s books will fall immediately in love with this small town and the folks that live there. Put a visit to Huckleberry Bay on your to-do list. You’ll be happy that you did. ❤️

 

Kristen Proby has published more than forty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion and Romancing Manhattan Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two cats.

Tracey’s Review

Never let it be said that Nana Malone cannot bring it. BROKEN BRIDGE, the final book in the Speak No Evil Trilogy, satisfied in every single way, and, dang it, left me wanting more, all at the same time.

Everyone, and I mean everyone, from Bridge and the Lords to Emma to Darcy to the mums, do their part to bring this story full circle, through all of the twists and turns, to an OMG conclusion. Questions are answered, hearts mended, and the whole gang does what they do best to put all of the pieces together and get the bad guys.

There is still, of course, all of the passion and secret society intrigue that makes this story unmistakably Nana’s, as well as visits from old friends that had me grinning. All in all, I can’t think of a better way to have ended this ride, other than to have it go on and on and on…you get what I’m saying. If you still haven’t met the London Lords and all of their cohort, stop messing around and read these books! You will love every page. ❤️

 

USA Today Bestseller, Nana Malone’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she “borrowed” from her cousin.

It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion, and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

“A top must read for 2022”
—Samantha Young, New York Times bestselling author

Falling Embers, an all-new second chance romance filled with suspense from Catherine Cowles, is available now!

I’ve loved Calder Cruz from the moment he taught me how to fly. Racing down a mountain and giving me the release I so desperately needed. My understanding. My safe space.

Hadley has fought for a life of her own ever since her sister’s kidnapping. When she was drowning in expectations and family pressures, Calder was always the one who understood her.

Until one night changed it all. From best friends to strangers in a single breath.

She’s like a fire that lives inside me. Even when I thought it was all burned out, there were still embers that lived in my bones.

Calder knows what it’s like to almost lose the people he loves most. He’ll never make that kind of mistake again. Working at the fire station and taking care of his daughters are the only things he needs.

All it takes is a single moment to make him realize how wrong he is. A split second of coming close to losing the woman he has always loved.

But as long-buried embers light anew, there are those who lurk in the shadows. And they’ll do whatever it takes to extinguish that flame for good…

Tracey’s Review

After reading and loving TATTERED STARS, I couldn’t wait to read FALLING EMBERS, the second book in the Tattered & Torn series by author Catherine Cowles. It’s often a difficult thing to follow up an absolutely fantastic book, but Catherine has done a good job of capturing the emotion and angst that were so present in the first book.

The events that make up the backstory for this whole series are nothing short of unimaginable, and it’s no wonder that every member of the Easton family is still dealing with the fallout years afterwards. When all that Calder has been through is added to the mix, that he and Hadley can push past everything and find their way back to each other is nothing short of fate.

Catherine weaves an engrossing story, full of action, suspense, and passion, and gave Hadley and Cruz the story that I was hoping for. I have to be honest and say that Sage and Birdie are the absolute stars of this book for me, and I hope that they’ll make many appearances in the books to come. I’m super-excited to see what Catherine has in store for us with the rest of the series, and can’t wait to get my hands on HIDDEN WATERS, because Beckett Easton has got me more than intrigued. These books are a definite ‘must read’ for lovers of family saga and suspense as only Catherine can write. Make sure that they’re on your TBR, and enjoy. ❤️

WANTED: A SITUATION-SHIP

I’m a single female that’s tired of relationships ruining my life. However, there are times when a date would be helpful. If you’re a single man, preferably mid-twenties to late-thirties, and are in a similar situation, we might be a match.

Candidate must be handsome, charming, and willing to pretend to have feelings for me (on a sliding scale, as the event requires). Ability to discuss a wide variety of topics is a plus. Must have your own transportation and a (legal) job.

This will be a symbiotic agreement. In exchange for your time, I will give you mine. Need someone to flirt with you at a football party? Go, team! Want a woman to make you look good in front of your boss? Let me find my heels. Would you love for someone to be obsessed with you in front of your ex? I’m applying my red lipstick now.

If interested, please email me. Time is of the essence.

About the Author:

She resides in the Midwest with her husband, sons, and two dogs. She spends a large amount of time playing with her kids, drinking coffee, and cooking. You can find her outside if the weather’s nice and there’s always a piece of candy in her pocket.

New Release + Release Blitz: The Secret by Kristen Proby

The Secret by Kristen Proby is now live!

From NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a forbidden romance. The Secret is the first in the Single in Seattle series!

Vaughn is everything I’m supposed to stay away from. Sexy. Cocky. And famous.
Ultra-famous.
I grew up in a family full of wealthy celebrities. My father, Luke Williams, is the celebrity of them all. A superstar actor and producer, my father knows the downside of living in the spotlight. And because of that, he sheltered my siblings and me from everything Hollywood entailed. We didn’t attend premieres. We weren’t photographed. There were no friendships with other celebrities’ children.
The limelight couldn’t touch us.
But now, at twenty-five, I’m ready to start my life, working for my father’s production company in downtown Seattle–until Vaughn Barrymore walks through the door.
He can’t keep his hands off me. He’s completely forbidden, but I can’t help falling for the sweet, complicated man.
When–and it’s when not if–my family finds out that I’ve been keeping this secret, will I have to choose between the man I love and those who mean the most to me? Or, by some miracle, can I have both?

Tracey’s Review

I’m that reader that loves the epilogues, the bonus scenes, the ‘6 months later’ add-ons. So it only stands to reason that when I heard that Kristen Proby was ready to start giving us books about the kids of her Seattle folks, I was over the moon. I mean, the beloved characters from a beloved series, and we get MORE?! Yes, please! THE SECRET is the first book in the Single in Seattle series, books that follow the kids of the Montgomery clan, one of my all-time faves, and I could not be happier.

It makes perfect sense that any daughter of Luke Williams and Natalie Conner Williams is going to be strong, confident, and a lovely person inside and out. Olivia is all of that and more, a success in her own right, refusing to ride the coattails of her famous dad.

Vaughn Barrymore is entertainment royalty, the heir apparent of a family famous for their position both in the movie business and in the news. All of these things also mean that he’s off limits for Olivia, but following that rule is harder than she ever expected.

THE SECRET is the perfect segue into this next chapter of Kristen’s Seattle universe, and I absolutely loved it. Sass, steam, passion, self-worth, all of the things that readers have come to expect in Kristen’s heroines, and a man that loves her exactly for who and what she is. Fans of the With Me in Seattle series will love THE SECRET, and, like me, be eagerly awaiting THE SCANDAL, the next book in the queue. If you haven’t entered this world, you must, and do it quickly. You will absolutely love it. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz: Wicked As Seduction by Shayla Black

Wicked as Seduction by Shayla Black is now live!

He’ll protect her…even if he has to take her captive to save her.

Tech wiz and former elite soldier Forest “Trees” Scott had one mission: Rescue the woman being hunted by a vicious cartel and get her to safety. It should have been simple…but the minute he sees the wary beauty with haunted eyes, his desire for her complicates everything. So does her stubborn refusal to trust him. When Trees is forced to abduct her, she vows to hate him–even as he finds himself falling in love…

For six years, Laila Torres has known nothing but brutality at the hands of men, so when the massive stranger with the forbidding mien kidnaps her, she’s frightened–and furious.

Tracey’s Reviews

It’s been a minute since I’ve read a book by Shayla Black, but I jumped right in to WICKED AS SEDUCTION: TREES & LAILA PART 1 without realizing that theirs is a story that has been building as part of the backstory in prior books in the Wicked & Devoted series. Even so, I had no trouble reading this solely as the first part of their complicated, steamy, thrill-packed story, and can’t wait to see what’s next.

It was nice to see such a spitfire of a heroine in Laila, one that kept Trees on his toes and then some. I’m really hoping that Part Two of their story continues in the same vein, because it really did add something. I mean, it’s nice to have a (sometimes) gentle giant around to save the day, but where’s the fun if there’s no spark?

If romantic suspense with an, ahem, dominant side is your bag, this is definitely the book for you. I would suggest starting with the first books and working your way through, but, as said, if you just want Laila and Trees, this book can be read as a standalone, and as the first part of a two-book package. Shayla seals the deal with a cliffy that will definitely have you (and me!) coming back for more, and Part 2 can’t get here quickly enough. ❤️

 


Shayla Black is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than eighty contemporary, erotic, paranormal, and historical romances. Her books have sold millions of copies and been published in a dozen languages.

As an only child, Shayla occupied herself by daydreaming, much to the chagrin of her teachers. In college, she found her love for reading and started pursuing a publishing career. Though she graduated with a degree in Marketing/Advertising and embarked on a stint in corporate America, her heart was with her stories and characters, so she left her pantyhose and power suits behind.

Shayla currently lives in North Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, her daughter, and two spoiled tabbies. In her “free” time, she enjoys reality TV, gaming, and listening to an eclectic blend of music.
