    New Release Friday for October 4

    10/3/2019

    New Release Friday
    Here are some fun new releases to get you reading this weekend!

    Moonlight, Magnolias and Magic - Cover
    Moonlight, Magnolias, and Magic (More in Heaven and Earth Book 4) Kindle Edition
    A cursed ring. A forgotten grave. A magical enemy. Can Annabella escape her family’s fate?

    Annabella has done her best to put behind her all memories of her childhood being raised as an unwanted ward in the gothic family mansion. As the secretary to the flamboyant Errol, Duke of Winchester, she’s seen the world and avoided her family’s clutches.

    But now she must return to that elegantly-decayed, antebellum house on the historic Battery in Charleston, South Carolina, where the “moonlight and magnolias” atmosphere hides some deadly family secrets. Returning for the wake of her aged relative, Henrietta, who hasn’t left her South of Broad showplace for decades, Annabella walks into the chilly embrace of her Cousin Beatrix and the woman’s much-too-attractive new assistant, Armand, whose words of encouragement and warning keep arriving inexplicably in her mind.

    In just a few hours, the house reclaims her. She finds herself waking up in her deceased relative’s bed and clothes, Henrietta’s ring on an unremovable chain around her neck. And, even as she begins to realize that magic is real and her friends and Armand hope to save her with it, it’s starting to look as though the terrifying mansion and its demonic secrets may never let her leave.

    Katherine Gilbert, author of the quirky urban fantasies Protecting the Dead and Unearthly Remains, shows a more serious side in this chilling Southern Gothic tale (but not without a bit of quirk!). On a Gilbert wackiness scale of 1-to-10 sarcastic talking cats*, this one is about a 3.

    *Warning: Not all stories contain talking cats. Wackiness may take other forms.

    The More in Heaven and Earth series is all set in the same magical universe filled with angels, witches, werewolves, demons, vampires, ghosts, and many other supernatural creatures. They can be read either in order or as stand-alones and will introduce you to a variety of fascinating characters, as they take you to various parts of this unusual earth. Get it here

    New Release Friday
    New Release friday is back
    Happy reading. I haven’t done new release Friday in a while – life got crazy – but I have several author friends, some who I know online, some whom I’ve worked within series and others I just like to read to share with you this week.

    Rissa's Rebel Heart - CoverRissa’s Rebel Heart (The Sweethearts of Country Music Book 1)
    When six musicians come together to form an all-girl country band, The Sweethearts of Country Music are born. But can they balance their musical worlds with their personal lives?

    Rissa Walker dreams of making it big in country music, but after seven years in Music City—and with very little success to show for it—she’s beginning to lose hope. When she’s offered the chance to join an all-girl country band, Rissa finds herself surrounded by five of the most talented musicians in Nashville, a tough-talking manager with a heart of gold, and her manager’s son. A son who happens to be a handsome single father whose kiss leaves her weak in the knees.

    Jake McCann grew up in the business, so he knows a thing or two about country music. When he hears Rissa perform at a wedding reception, he thinks she’d be the perfect addition to the all-girl country band his mom hopes to bring to Nashville. What he doesn’t know is just how hard he’ll fall for the beautiful songwriter. And he really doesn’t know how he’s going to live without her when she and the band go on tour.

    With a hectic tour schedule, and hundreds of miles of highway between them, can Rissa and Jake’s relationship stay in tune? Or, will Rissa have to choose between her music and her heart?

    The Sweethearts of Country Music series includes six books by six different authors. Each novel features a member of the band as she struggles to balance music and love. get it here

    Happily Ever Hers - Cover
    Happily Ever Hers: A fake relationship/movie star/ex-military hero romantic comedy! (Movie Stars in Maryland Book 2)

    Juliet Manchester is America’s best-loved movie starlet. But when a nasty divorce and a sex-tape scandal threaten to tarnish her spotless good-girl reputation, she turns to co-star Ryan McDonnell to help distract the media with a passionate (and completely fake) new romance. The only problem? They’re both in love with other people.
    Going home for Gran’s 90th in Maryland was something I normally would’ve been looking forward to. But the timing is terrible. My ex is dragging me through a media scandal (even though he’s the one who cheated. Spectacularly. On the kitchen island. With my personal chef), and if I had my way, I’d stay out of the spotlight entirely.
    But America’s Sweetheart has to be okay, and my agent is positive the best way to convince America that I’m not in the midst of a breakdown is to date my latest co-star.
    He’s hot. He’s sweet. And he’s willing.
    But he’s not the man I’m in love with.
    The former Marine bodyguard who’s been stationed inside my house by the private security firm I employ is nothing like a movie star. He’s rough around the edges, from the wrong side of the tracks… and one-hundred percent exactly my type.
    But the two of us together? Could cost us both our jobs.
    I just need to remember that Jace Morgan is here to protect me. Not to love me.
    But when he comes along to Maryland? Lines get crossed, and I’m not talking about the Mason-Dixon, y’all.
    Happily Ever Hers is a full-length laugh-out-loud romcom with narcoleptic pugs, cursing Grans who drink too many Manhattans, and a stoic ex-military hero who just might break your heart. (Standalone and no cliffhanger!) Get it here

    Love in Charge - CoverLove in Charge: Powerful Women, Powerful Love Kindle Edition
    When this woman steps into a room, heads turn and people listen. Whether she’s commanding a new business venture, coaching a collegiate football team, or diagnosing and healing people, she’s focused, influential, and passionate, and she’s not about to apologize for it.
    But there is loneliness and fears that she can’t ignore, and questions soon follow. Is a second chance meant to be when the first was a disaster? Is her distrust of all men warranted when only one has truly ever hurt her? Can she set aside an age difference to find love?
    Most of all… when a man who is everything she’s never realized she wanted is right in front of her, will she be ready for the biggest undertaking of her life?
    Lose yourself in these three novellas of powerful women learning that sometimes love is the one in charge.

    No More Bad Dates - CoverNo More Bad Dates: A romantic comedy of love, friendship… and tea (High Tea Book 1) (Cozy Cottage Café 5)
    Three friends form the No More Bad Dates Pact: stop dating the wrong guys and start dating the right ones – weirdos and jerks need not apply.

    Twenty-five-year-old Sophie McCarthy’s career is virtually nonexistent, her family expects her to “do something important” with her life, and she’s totally sick of dating the wrong guys: the self-absorbed, the arrogant, the borderline criminally insane.

    After she’s unceremoniously dumped during the vows at her boss’s wedding, she and her two equally disappointed-in-love best friends agree to help each other find decent guys to date. Together, they form the No More Bad Dates Pact: stop dating the wrong guys and start dating the right ones–weirdos and jerks need not apply.

    When Sophie’s roommate Jason Christie–a.k.a. doctor-in-training and serial nurse-dater–joins the pact, he vows to weed out the bad ones for her. But with his rejection of every guy Sophie meets, she begins to wonder if he’s got an ulterior motive. And anyway, why does she always have so much more fun with Jason than with the guys she’s actually trying to date?

    While desperately seeking her “happy for now,” could Sophie stumble into her “happily ever after?”

    High Tea is a spin-off of Kate O’Keeffe’s bestselling Cozy Cottage Café series. Escape to New Zealand in this fun, feel-good chick lit series! Get it here

    Lucy Davenport is a Hot Mess, no doubt. She’s digging herself in deeper and deeper with the surprise announcement from her in-laws. They are demanding that she marry Cash Davenport, her deceased husbands brother. Her family will bond together to fight them, but their hilarious
    dys-FUN-ctional antics will land them in trouble, maybe even in jail.

    Warning: If you are looking for a sweet, sensitive book with a happily ever after, this isn’t it. It is a totally inappropriate book about a completely dysfunctional family. The F word flies free along with many other curse words. Feel free to get drunk (because the Davenports sure are!) while you’re reading it, and prepare to wet yourself laughing. If sex scenes are not your thing, this book might not be your thing. But, if you have a crazy sense of humor and like raunchy comedies – you’re in the right place. Join in on the craziness of The Crazy Rich Davenport Family.

    Chasing a Starr – Delancey Stewart
    Chasing a Starr - Cover
    When a city girl comes up against a cowboy, some dust is bound to fly…

    Reine Halverson was 100% city girl – shiny, polished, and put together. A branding specialist for a huge San Francisco firm, she’d built herself from the ground up, covering her country roots with the gleam and glamour of city life.

    She might’ve been from somewhere else, but the city was her salvation. That life was behind her.

    Will Starr was a cowboy, through and through. His mother had tried to make him something else, but a combat tour in Afghanistan has a way of making a man see what he’s made of. And Will knew he was made up of Northern California grapevines, a hundred-year old farmhouse, and cattle land that had been in his family for generations.

    When Reine arrives at Starr Ranch Winery as part of the big city firm’s investment deal set up to save the family land, Will’s convinced she’s the last thing any of them need. But when she starts to find her way beneath his carefully built armor, he realizes there’s more at stake than the business.

    Reine might just walk away with what little remains of his heart.

    New Release Friday
    A Wave of Love by Monica Donnelly
    A Wave of Love - Cover
    Fintan Doherty was back.

    Polly had spent a decade avoiding the man who’d broken her heart as a teenager but now he was back in town and she couldn’t seem to escape him.

    Fin wanted to make amends, not for leaving but for the way he left. He’d gone to pursue a career as an World Champion Surfer, that was his dream and he’d fulfilled it. He didn’t regret going but he did regret that his leaving had broken Polly’s heart.

    Polly hated that Fin was still the one man she’d ever loved. She’d tried to move on and now ran a successful vineyard but for some reason no one else had touched her like Fin, which meant here she was nearly thirty and still a virgin.

    If Fin wanted her forgiveness all he had to do was commit to some no strings attached sex while he was in town. Polly was certain it was a win-win for everyone.

    The only problem was Fin wasn’t planning on leave and he definitely wasn’t planning on kissing Polly good-bye again.

    This is the second book in the Henley’s Bluff series and can be read as a stand-alone novel

    Starting over isn’t always simple. Will they try and recapture a summer love swept out at sea thirteen years earlier.. Will secrets and heartache of the past keep them apart? Life may not always be smooth sailing along the shores of Carlisle Bay, but fireworks are sure to be found.

    She’s a jinxed witch with Bruce Lee moves. The coven’s being haunted and witches are disappearing. Will she be able to save the coven and herself?
    Not yet over the loss of her mom, Frankie B’s in a new city, without family, a home or her full powers. Thank goodness for her familiar, Dex, the best Jack Russell in the world.

    Will Frankie solve the mystery of the missing witches and rid the coven of the ghost of Captain Russell Garnet? Or will her ability to make him corporeal see her being held as his prisoner until her dying breath? Either way, she’s not going down without a fight.

    Frankie B and the Ghost Ship will have you longing to perform magic of your own and maybe even considering a few self-defence classes…

    Aloha Love by Susan Murphy
    Aloha Love - Cover
    From the author of the Confetti Confidential series, Susan Murphy, comes a new women’s fiction novel about finding yourself through the toughest of experiences and learning how to not only love again, but how to love yourself.

    They say ‘true love comes but once,’ but what if you missed it?

    Jennifer Bell knows she missed her chance more than twenty years ago. Heartbroken and alone, she fell into the arms of a charming guy and into his violent hold. Barely escaping with her life with scars that would likely never heal, she vowed never to let herself fall in love again.
    Throwing herself into her work as a marriage celebrant, she spends her time helping others achieve their fairy tale ending. But what if the chance for love found its way back to her?
    While on a working holiday to Hawaii, with her best friend Anna (who is having a major life crisis of her own), an encounter with the man she lost all those years ago could change everything.
    Will she have the courage to fight for what she wants?

    Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. For an experienced wedding professional like Ellen, planning her own wedding should be as simple as the age-old rhyme.

    Unfortunately, her something old is an ex-boyfriend itching to get back together, her something new is being the first bride to walk down the aisle at a venue still under construction, and her something borrowed is time. It’s enough to make a bride quite blue.

    Trying to land her dream job offers her a distraction from her wedding blues. But when her fiancé Josh takes off for a Broadway tour without so much as a kiss goodbye, will Ellen’s plans for the perfect wedding disappear with him?
