Delilah O’Reilly and Nicholas Borado fell in love, married, and planned to spend a life together full of dreams, joy, and endless possibilities… until lies and betrayal tore them apart.

Delilah O’Reilly may have grown up in a small town, but there’s nothing small town about her. She’s the media genius of celebrity interviews and has the television show to prove it. Smart, confident, and in control, no one would ever guess that deep inside there’s a lonely girl with a sad past, one that includes a family secret and a man she’s never forgotten. When an on-air disaster explodes her career, she seeks refuge in the one place she swore she’d never return to—Magdalena, New York—her hometown.

Nick Borado was born to a life of wealth and privilege. As heir to a high-end men’s clothing dynasty, he’s always gotten what he wanted…and he wanted Delilah O’Reilly. When she betrays him, he spends years running from that pain, losing himself in reckless behavior and close calls. After a near-fatal miss, he realizes something has to change and heads to the small town she once told him could make a person invisible. Four months later, he’s still in Magdalena working at O’Reilly’s Bar & Grille and trying to figure out his life. Of course, the town thinks he’s just a bartender living paycheck to paycheck…

Six years have passed since Delilah and Nick saw each other, but they’ll meet up again in a most unlikely place—Magdalena, New York, Delilah’s hometown. Hurt and accusations will resurface, but they won’t stop the sparks from flying, or the town from wondering about this couple’s secret past…wondering too if Delilah and Nick might just have a chance for a future together…

51XyDe3cVqLTORN ~ CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

I understand how adultery happens. I know, your first thought is “Of course you can — you’re a cheater.” That’s true, but that’s certainly not the whole story.
That’s always what a cheater says, right? Once again, you are correct. If you’re looking for a typical romance, then run — run far.
After ten years of marriage I realized my husband barely touched me anymore. There was the obligational monthly sex, but even that was starting to fizzle. I was twenty-nine and he was thirty-two. We should’ve been doing it like bunnies, night and day, or at least a couple times a week, to be more realistic. But that hadn’t happened in years.
It didn’t hit me until I’d been gone a couple of weeks. Then when I got home we both fell asleep that night, me snuggled up against his back like we always slept. But that’s all we did. We just … slept.
No big deal you say?
Wrong. It was a very big deal.
It was the night I realized we had a real problem.
I have a choice to make, but I’m so torn. Do I stay where I’m at or do I go with Kaden, with the man who’s showing me I still have a lot to live for …

51fs7JwfEHL._SY346_SOME LUCKY WOMAN ~ WOMEN’S FICTION

Some lucky women meet the man of their dreams and live happily ever after. Some lucky women focus on a career and make their own happily ever after. And then some women wake up after fifteen years of marriage and discover that their luck just ran out … right into the arms of another woman.

Jana Embers isn’t one to sit back, though. The first thing Jana realizes she needs to do is empty the joint bank account, then she’s thinking she might take a tire iron to her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s truck. After that, she’s not sure what she’ll do … Maybe she’ll adopt a cat.

Very quickly, Jana decides she doesn’t need a man. A perfectly sized and shaped device and writing about the perfect hero will more than suffice. Determined to share her philosophy, she pens You Don’t Need a Man, encouraging women everywhere to go out and experience life instead of waiting for a man to complete them.

Three years later, Jana has a New York Times bestseller and a contract for a movie adaptation, but she also has a shoulder injury, which has put a crimp in her new carefree lifestyle. Worse yet, she can’t write. Her only hope is Dr. Adrian Kijek, a renowned physical therapist who hates her simply because she wrote a book about not needing a man, or so she thinks ..

What she didn’t expect was getting lost in a mysterious fog and stumbling into the arms of an ex-pirate turned supply runner in the 1800s. One that catches her attention far more than the orange-blue flames of a chocolate and cherry sauce flambé.

Thankfully, rugged Everett Quinn is determined to help her survive in an era she knows nothing about. But the deeper she delves into this new world of high sea adventures with Everett, the more she starts to wonder if maybe—just maybe—she’s right where she’s supposed to be…

Southern Legacy, the Sweeping Romance that got rejected for an Amazon Ad last week, is now a bargain at $0.99 until March 24. The exact reason for the rejection was “The cover image of your ad shows a male character and a female character with sexual expressions” or simply ‘THE LOOK.’

No vamps. No weres. No zombies. Or blood or guts or ugly.

Over a thousand pages “…loaded with snark, betrayals, love, mayhem, and of course MAGIC!”

Lots of sexual tension between Thea Gale, owner of the famous red shoes with a witch-killer history, and Dr. Magnus Rogon, future King of Right-Thinking Witches and Warlocks with long memories of witch-hating common humans.

“Characters are irritatingly fun! Romance is annoying – and hot.”

Dark spells, family disapproval, and The High Tribunal’s outdated world views conspire against star-crossed lovers from different worlds. An obstacle at every turn blocks Thea and Magnus. They persist in believing the truest magic is love.

“… cures all seriousness. Sheer slaphappy, zany pleasure, like a big wad of cotton candy without the calories.”.

Claire escaped a Seattle killer and landed in an Otherworld of worse disasters, plus a guy. Well, there is always a guy, isn’t there? Now he has left his world to follow her back to Seattle and the terror escalates.

This novel was an EPPIE finalist for Best Paranormal Romance

4-1/2 stars RT Rating
The second book in the Mudflat series is a supernatural comic romp full of nonstop action, fantastic characters and a hero you’ll love. Tarvik and Claire balance each other perfectly as they battle the forces of evil. …Mudflat definitely has its own zip code… Reviewed by Donna M. Brown, RT Book Reviews
