New release Friday for May 2022

 

New Release Friday

Time for a new release Friday post.

I’ve missed a month or two but now it’s time for New Release Friday again. Check out the books by some of my author friends. The heat levels vary, so make sure you read the blurbs before you buy. These are a mix of established and new authors and pen names but they all have one thing in common – they all love new readers fiding them.

Hitched to the Bad Boy

Hitched to the Bad Boy: A second chance secret marriage romance (Hitched at first sight Book 1)

Urgently needed! A fast marriage and a reputation overhaul for six gorgeous bachelors out to impress. Happy ever afters unintentionally included.

Elle

I’m the girl who did everything right but somehow it’s all gone wrong. I’m a newly divorced, single mom and make-up saleswoman in Vegas for a convention. While I’m away, I’m trying not to think about the fact I need to be married by my birthday in order to keep ownership of a bank that’s been in my family for generations. A bank I might not even want if my ex wasn’t trying to take it from under me.

I’m not sure what I expected to find in Vegas, but it was definitely not Rapahel, my first love who left town on his Harley and never looked back. He’s hotter than I remember and after a night of drinking and reminiscing, I find myself hitched to the bad boy from my past.

When I get back home, I expect Raphael to serve me papers, not come into town like a knight on a metal steed looking for a way to help me stick it to my ex and a second chance for us.

Raphael

Elle Chase was always too good for me and too soft-hearted for her own good. No way she’d have taken a chance on me back then otherwise. But I’m not some broke ass kid anymore and I want a chance to prove to Elle, our hometown and the production company who is looking to make a television show with me, that I’m not that guy anymore.

Our chance encounter in Vegas might have been crazy and I know she thinks I’ll walk away again but the woman needs me. Plus, spending time with her and her kid is no hardship and the TV people want family values.

I’m definitely taking a gamble but if we can pull this off both of us win.

And if I can win Elle’s heart again along the way, so much the better.

Getting hitched at first sight has never been so enticing.

Hitched to Her Best Friend

Hitched to her Best Friend: Hitched at First Sight 2

Urgently needed! A fast marriage and a reputation overhaul for six gorgeous bachelors out to impress. Happy ever afters unintentionally included.

Maddie

One weekend in Las Vegas. A bit of fun on the tables, cocktails, and a mini high school reunion between best friends. What could possibly go wrong?

My plane was delayed. My luggage got lost. Our hotel booking was cancelled by mistake… on top of that our friends drop out until it’s just me and Kyle alone in Vegas. What a start to my best friend’s birthday celebrations, right?

You’d think it would be easy to find two rooms in a place with more than 150,000 hotel rooms. But not this weekend! A massive world record attempt has snatched up every available room. There’s only one way to get a room in Las Vegas: Get hitched!

I don’t want to give up our weekend. It’s the first time we’ve seen each other in eight years. And after too many hours of searching, and too many shots in the hotel bar, getting hitched to my best friend feels like a no brainer. So is the wedding night that follows. No one will ever know, right?

Wrong?! The youngest granddaughter of one of the world’s most influential retail moguls can’t get drunk and hitched in Sin City without ending up on every front page. So, what happened in Vegas is now a big fat fake marriage with my career and reputation on the line.

Except, Kyle excels at being the perfect husband. He excels at inducing butterflies, heart flutters, secret smiles… my brain won’t let me fall for my best friend, I’m too smart for that. But it might be a little too late to save my heart!

Kyle

The boy next door. Co-conspirator. Fellow adventure. Partner in crime. Beater-upper of bullies—and dumbass boyfriends—the giver of compliments and self-confidence. That’s me. I’m the reliable best friend. But I want so much more!

Yet, after eight years in the navy, fighting on the front line and staring down the enemy, I’m still too afraid to tell Maddie I love her. I’ve always loved her. So, when we end up drunk, hitched, and on the front page of every major newspaper and magazine, faking it with Maddie is almost like a dream come true.

Fooling our family and friends doesn’t sit well with me, but I’ll do it to protect Maddie’s career and her family’s reputation. I will uproot my life in Nebraska and move into her apartment in LA. I’ll be the perfect husband for the cameras because I love her.

I’m not faking how I feel. I’m just not hiding it anymore. For the first time in my life, I have the girl of my dreams in my arms, and my bed, and the happily ever after I’ve always wanted. I’d be a fool to let that slip through my fingers. And I, Kyle Carter, am no fool. Look out Maddie, the battle for your heart is not one I’m prepared to lose!

Getting hitched at first sight has never been so enticing.

First Match

First Match: A Single Dad Accidental Pregnancy Sports Romance : An Arizona Rattlesnakes Novel

Sometimes I feel every inch of my thirty-eight years. Maybe that’s why I allow myself a single moment of indulgence—a one night stand with a hot, young singer who is definitely not for me. Who can blame me for going for it?

I’m usually content living my life as a grumpy single dad with a teenage daughter—a handful of a kid who wants me and her mom back together, which is never going to happen. My life isn’t so bad. After all, I’m the Coach for the Arizona Rattlesnakes NHL team, and when I speak, a whole team of people listen.

I don’t expect to meet Ms. Sexy Singer again, not at my daughter’s parent-teacher conference (Talk about awkward)! And I definitely don’t expect our one-night stands to happen again…and again.

And again.

This is just sex, right?

Until it starts to feel like more. There’s something about Willa Bennett that I just can’t resist, and I know her unexpected pregnancy should freak me the frick out…but it doesn’t. Unfortunately for me, my wild young lover still has her sights set on Nashville and the record deal she deserves. She might even have those sights set on her ex.

Turns out I have real feelings for my baby mama and while I might be in charge at the Rattlesnakes, I can’t make Willa do a damn thing I want, when I want. (At least, not out of the bedroom).

She’s a beautiful song bird and I know I can’t cage her in, even if I want to. So what the hell are we gonna do now?

First Match is the first book in the new Arizona Rattlesnakes series, a spin off from Pippa Green’s successful Minnesota Raiders series (You’ll see some of your old favorites reappear). It can be enjoyed as a standalone novel.
