    Frankie B Captain's Gold - Cover
    Faced with a potentially-lethal blood curse, should she really be on this crazy treasure hunt? Yes, if finding the gold will help break the curse.

    Rid of the ghost of Captain Russell Garnet, Frankie thought she could get on with life, if only she wasn’t lumbered with this pesky blood curse. And if only her troublesome grandmamma — the not so ex-pirate — Anne Bonny hadn’t managed to get herself in a heap of trouble.

    But before any rescue can take place, Frankie needs to get a handle on her new witchy powers. While she’s no longer stuck with housework spells and the occasional ward, her new power levels are unstable at best. And completely missing, at worst.

    And yet again, she’s training with the drop-dead gorgeous Zane, making concentration difficult, especially when the air between them is laced with magic.

    Will Frankie break the curse, and find out who killed her mom and dad, or will she die trying? With Dex, her familiar, and Zane at her side, how can she possibly fail?

    Hot Mess: Lucy Davenport: Season One, Episode One (The CRD Series Book 2)
    Hot Mess - Cover
    In the pilot for the series, you met the #Davenport clan and all their craziness.
    Pick up in episode one where the pilot for the book left off.

    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.

    Three great weekend reads this New Release Friday

    6/29/2018

    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
