ROMANTIC PICKS Recommends TV! #VirginRiver #ShameOnSurvivor Plus Giveaway

51F193GLFCL._SY346_VIRGIN RIVER

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve recommended a TV show, but I have to mention Virgin River on Netflix. For Romance Readers, I would highly recommend it. This is definetly for us romance lovers! I haven’t read Virgin River nor have I read anything by Robyn Carr, but I will now. I was reading the reviews of the book on Amazon. There was one that said the show isn’t like the book. So, I can’t say whether it does or not, but I can say it’s nice to watch. A good romance book makes you root for the HEA. I’m certainly hooked on the characters. I love Mel and Jack. Even more, I totally respect the plotline. A broken Mel is looking for a new beginning in a small town where everyone is in everyone’s business. The cabin she has been promised is a shack and the doctor she is supposed to work for doesn’t want her. The local bar owner is a retired Marine who has his own set of problems. Just the kinda setting we romance readers love and don’t get to see that often on TV. Sure we have the Hallmark Channel, but this story has a plot.

That is the good news. The bad— Shame on Survivor! I stopped watching it when Survivor warned Dan about his behavior and Kellie got voted out. Now I see that Survivor pulled him from the game because he didn’t stop. This is just wrong! They should have pulled him before when they first saw the harassment at the BEGINNING! There is no excuse—at all. We are suppose to give him the benefit of doubt, but it was on tape and I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a lot more. This season has been tainted. I feel bad for the other players especially Kellie and even Elizabeth and Missy now. I have my reasons…because they came to play a game and wanted to win. Yes, they made a mistake on using the sexual harassment, but they should have never been put in that position. In seasons past, they have seen others lie and mantipulate others, but the sexual harassment was real. It wasn’t a game. Survivor is responsible for that. I hope Janet wins…and I hated to read that Elaine got voted off. I liked her, too, but I feel Survivor has a responsiblity to all the other contestants. This season hasn’t been played on a even playing field. It’s a shame. Survivor needs to step up.

Now, I don’t want to end on a bad note. I do have a giveaway going. You have to enter for your chance to win!

Hearts are lighter and wishes burn a little brighter at Christmas…

Elizabeth was trapped in a tangle of postpartum depression and grief after the death of her beloved parents and she couldn’t quite see the way back to her husband and their two beautiful kids…until a car accident stole away her memories and changed her life.

And when she finally remembered the sound of little Cassie’s laugh, the baby powder smell of Bridger, or the feel of her husband’s hand in hers, Elizabeth worried that they’d moved on without her. That she’d missed too much. That perhaps she wasn’t the right mother for her kids or wife for Luke, no matter how much she loved them.

But now, seven years later, Luke finds her in a nearby town and brings Elizabeth back home to the family she loves, just in time for Christmas. And being reunited with Luke and her children is better than anything Elizabeth could have imagined.

As they all trim the tree and bake cookies, making new holiday memories, Elizabeth and Luke are drawn ever closer. Can the hurt of the past seven years be healed over the course of one Christmas season and bring the Hamiltons the gift of a new beginning?

“Jean Pendziwol’s beautifully written novel captured me from the very first page. Its descriptions of the windswept lightkeeper’s station of Elizabeth’s and Emily’s youth are so crisply rendered I felt I was standing on its shores watching the great ships cross the stormy waters of Lake Superior. Even more than its vivid evocation of a unique time and place, The LightKeeper’s Daughters is a sensitive and moving examination of the nature of identity, the importance of family, and the possibility of second chances.”—Heather Young, author of The Lose Girls

51ckFRtWCzL._SY346_CLOSE TO HOME

“Welcome to Westen. I’m Lorna Doone. Yep, spelled just like the cookie and I own the Peaches ‘N Cream Café here in Westen. You might think nothing much happens in a small mid-western town, but as my friend Harriett says, things aren’t always what they appear. Take our girl Emma for example…”

Emma Lewis has a lot on her plate. The single mother of two precocious twin boys and an aging mother who is having trouble getting through each day, the last thing Emma needs is a man in her life, especially a doctor. So when the town’s doctor goes on vacation and his handsome nephew takes over, Emma is shocked to not only find him standing in her bedroom, but accusing her of being a neglectful parent.

Clint Preston came to Westen for the year to fill in as the town doc while his uncle took a long needed vacation. Clint also needed a sense of peace and calm to try to find his passion for medicine burned out by long shifts in an urban hospital’s ER. Angered to find two boys in his clinic with broken wrists and no accompanying parent, he is determined to confront their mother. The feisty redhead he meets quickly dispels his belief that she’s a neglectful mother, but he can see her situation is more critical than she wishes to face and finds himself volunteering to help care for her sons and the remodeling of her home.

As Emma and Clint forge a relationship among the slightly off-beat characters that inhabit Westen a menace from Emma’s past threatens her and her sons. Clint and Emma join forces to prevent the loss of either boy and the love they’ve discovered in each other’s’ arms.

51qnBK3lQtLSEEKING THE SHERIFF

Her family had a long history with the sheriff of Masterson County—none of it good. So when the new sheriff shows up in the middle of the night with Phoebe’s teenage brother in tow, she knows her life is about to get a lot more complicated. Phoebe doesn’t have room for complicated. She was far too busy helping her father run their struggling ranch and all but raising her younger siblings. She didn’t need a too handsome sheriff complicating her world.

No matter how he made her feel.

Sheriff Joel Masterson has an entire county depending on him to run things, to keep them safe. He doesn’t need trouble from the rabble-rousing Tylers of Tyler Township. However, once he gets a good look at the eldest Tyler daughter Phoebe, things get real complicated quick.

Suddenly, Joel doesn’t mind trouble at all.

Now Joel just has to convince Phoebe that this sheriff of Masterson County was going to cause her only the best kind of trouble of all…

51pxTKVheDL._SY346_RESCUING RAYNE

As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed. One evening is all the enigmatic man can give her, and Rayne greedily takes it, despite suspecting it will never be enough.

Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane “Ghost” Bryson hadn’t planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist. Being a Delta Force member means lying to protect his identity, which is unfortunate, considering Rayne seems made for Ghost, right down to the tattoo on her back. For the first time in his life, regret fills him as he slips away the following morning.

Both are shocked when, months later, they meet again—under the worst possible circumstances. Seems fate has given them a second chance…if they can survive the terrorist situation they’re in. If Rayne can forgive Ghost his lies. And if Ghost can trust Rayne to be strong enough to endure the secrets and uncertainty that come with loving a Delta Force soldier.

** Rescuing Rayne is the 1st book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings
