 5 of 5 stars

James Winters, the Duke of Wulverton returns to London and his family after being lost for 10 years in the Yukon wilderness. What he had to do to survive was completely close off all emotions of hope and love, and his family does not understand his refusal to be touched or his nighttime wanderings in the woods. James is lost in this entirely new environment until he meets Jules Southby, a young gentleman who accompanied his father, a distinguished doctor of the mind. The minute he meets Jules, he sees right through her elaborate disguise, and he slowly begins to trust Jules. For her part, Jules is overwhelmed with the powerful emotions the duke elicits from her. How can she keep her heart safe when faced with such masculine beauty and intelligence while keeping her feelings under wraps and her true identity a secret?

This was such a unique storyline, and it pulled me right in from the beginning. The raw emotion Ms. Reid is able to convey to the reader about James's feelings, or lack thereof, is stunning. The senses play a big part in this story, and it was those senses that allowed James to survive in the icy wilderness. The torment that Jules feels about her growing feelings for James and trying to keep her dark secret from the world is nothing short of spectacular. Through a few twists and turns, James and Jules finally get their HEA. I adore Ms. Reid's books, and I'm looking forward to reading more from this masterful storyteller.

4 of 5 stars

Rafe Dorchester, Duke of Rockford, has always done everything the proper way. He's an honorable man and takes his responsibilities very seriously. When he literally runs into Charlotte in a seedy part of town, he's pleasantly surprised that she has no qualms about telling him exactly what she thinks about his "help." He's intrigued with the young woman and goes with her to help release a friend from prison. Rafe doesn't want the encounter to end and asks her name. Charlotte doesn't know what made her lie about her identity to the handsome duke except for the fact she panicked and never thought she'd see him again.  When Rafe appears at her door, she's in for the shock of her life. Now, what should she do?

This story was loosely based on the fairytale, with the stepfather/guardian being the villain in the story instead of a wicked stepmother. While I understood Charlotte's reasoning for lying about her identity, the fact that she kept up the pretense for so long instead of confessing the truth was a little irritating. Rafe was a duke and could certainly protect her from her stepfather, but she never trusted him enough. There are a couple of good twists and turns in the book before the couple has the HEA. One criticism is the fact throughout the book, Charlotte's love for the servants in the household is demonstrated over and over again, but in the epilogue, there isn't even a mention of them. That was definitely a misstep, in my opinion. However, I look forward to reading Francesca's story next.

#SALE .99 Regency Romance: THE DUKE AND THE BLUESTOCKING by Debra Elizabeth


Can the duke convince the one young lady who doesn't want to marry that he's perfect for her?

Miss Emma Bainbridge is in danger of being labeled a bluestocking much to her mother's horror. With her love of reading and outspoken opinions, her views on marriage are not hard to predict. The last thing she wants is to give up what little independence she enjoys to the whims and demands of a husband. She'd rather be a spinster.

William Davies, the Duke of Richmond, met Miss Bainbridge when he escorted her and her sisters to the British Museum. He was intrigued with her intelligence and zest for learning. She's a stunning beauty and would make a perfect duchess. But there's a big problem, Miss Bainbridge does not want to marry anyone, not even a duke. Somehow he must convince her that she's the perfect woman for him. Will she finally relent and let him ignite the passion lingering just below the surface?

Amazon buy link:


“Thank you for escorting us to the museum, Your Grace,” Emma said as Richmond handed her down from the carriage.

“It was my pleasure. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I know my sister did,” he said, holding her hand a moment longer than necessary before handing Ava down.

Just then, Akers opened the door to the townhouse, and Emma was grateful for the butler’s promptness.

“Good day, Your Grace,” Emma said with a quick curtsey, then ran up the stairs and into the foyer without a backward glance. Tea was over, but her mother would still be in the parlor, and Emma hoped to slip past without being noticed and grilled on the outing. She’d started up the stairs when she heard her mother call to her from the parlor.

“Emma, is that you?”

“I’ll see you later, miss,” Ava said as she continued up the stairs.

Emma rolled her eyes but knew she had no choice but to answer her mother, so she handed her bonnet and gloves off to Akers before walking into the parlor. “Mama, do you wish for something?”

“Not at all. I merely wanted to hear about your outing with the duke.”

“It wasn’t an outing with the duke. He merely escorted Lady Charlotte and me," Emma said.

“My darling girl, I do believe the duke is showing an interest in you.”

Emma sighed. “Mama, trust me, he’s not. I went to the museum with my friend, and since her aunt wasn’t in London yet, the duke stepped in to chaperone us. That’s all there was to the outing. Nothing more.”

“Did he ask to see you again?”

“No, Mama. If that’s all, I’d like to go to my bedchamber now and rest before dinner.”

Lavinia nodded, and Emma wasted no time exiting the parlor and running up the stairs. Her heart was pounding by the time she reached the solitude of her bedchamber. Why did her mother have to push the idea that the Duke of Richmond was interested in her? She’d been wrong when she pushed Violet toward him, and now she was trying the same matchmaking scheme on her. Mama would be severely disappointed when she realized the duke had no interest in her whatsoever. 

Why would he want a bluestocking like her when he could have any woman in Society as his future duchess? He was wealthy, handsome, and a duke—the perfect combination for a nobleman. Many young women aspired to become a duchess, and Richmond would have no lack of candidates for the position.

Emma had been hoping for a lovely leisurely summer and fall without her mother pushing suitors her way, but that peace seemed in jeopardy now. Violet had successfully married a viscount; why couldn’t her mother be satisfied with that for a few months? 

Emma already had enough of her mother’s matchmaking schemes, and Lavinia hadn’t even started in earnest yet. 

She hoped Edgerton would take the family back to the country soon. She was tired of London and couldn't wait to breathe the fresh country air again. Perhaps then, her mother would stop pushing suitors at her for a few blessed months so she could enjoy the leisure of the country. She planned to ask Edgerton about the summer plans after dinner.

#Excerpt: DEADLY BETRAYAL by Sheila Kill

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Sheila Kell will be awarding a $25 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

When trusting the wrong person can be deadly.

From Romantic Suspense BEST-SELLING and AWARD-WINNING Author • What happens when a former FBI analyst quits her job to become a PI and ends up partnering with the man who left her fourteen years earlier? In Sheila Kell’s riveting novel of secrets, deceit, and romance, two people rush to find a killer while reckoning with their growing attraction.

Cassie McKay was tired of being passed over as a FBI field agent. She quits her job as a FBI analyst, moved back home with her mother, and takes a job as a PI. Only she hadn’t expected her partner to be the one man who’d left her years before.

Jack “JD” Walker had done a lot wrong in his life, but he hadn’t killed the mother of his child as the police believed, nor had he expected the only women he’d ever loved to come to his rescue. The two work diligently to prove JD’s innocence while someone is determined to make JD pay.

Deadly Betrayal is the first book in the Coastal Investigations series. If you enjoy a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat read, you’ll love this installment of Sheila Kell’s new romantic suspense series.


“Well, it’s late. I’m going to get some sleep,” Cassie said.

Sleep? What? He planned to seduce her, and here she was kicking him out before he even had the chance. So, he did the only thing he could. He stood and strode toward his room. “Goodnight, my sweet Cassie.” He left the double doors separating their rooms open.

He listened to her shower, wishing he could jump in there with her and soap her body down. Thoughts whizzed through JD’s head as he clenched his eyes shut: 60.2 average passes per game, 328.2 average passing yards, second in the season, twelve weeks in. 52.9 average—he looked down. His erection still hadn’t subsided.

When she climbed into bed, he couldn’t take it anymore. He walked to the door separating their rooms and asked, “Are you coming to my bed, or am I coming to yours?”

About the Author:
Sheila Kell writes about the romantic men who leave women’s hearts pounding with a happily ever after built on memorable, adrenaline-pumping stories. Or, (since her editor tries to cut down on her long-windedness) simply “Smokin’ Hot Romance & Intrigue.” Her debut novel, His Desire (HIS Series #1), launched as an Amazon #1 romantic suspense bestseller and Top 100 overall, later winning the Readers’ Favorite award for best romantic suspense novel.

As a Southern girl who traveled the world with the United States Air Force, she remembers all the embarrassing moments of her fellow veterans to include in her books and laughs every time she does it. Having left behind her days as a College President, she can usually be found nestled in the Mississippi woods, where she lives with her cats and all the strays that magically find her front door. When she isn’t writing, you can find Sheila with her nose in a good book, dealing with the woodland critters who enjoy her back patio, or wishing she had a genie to do her bidding.

#Excerpt: LIPSTICK DIARIES by Tiye

Lipstick Diaries: Chemical Reaction
Publication date: February 17th 2023
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Chemical Reaction: Second Chance Romance

Five years ago, Simone Austin walked away from Chris Alexander, the possible love of her life. Their mad chemistry still haunts her, and no other man has been able to live up to the man she left behind. Tired of being single, Simone, two of her cousins, and her best friend make a pact. They vow to be sexually fierce, completely open, and purposeful in getting what they each want from men.

Even second chances.
After a thirst-trapping pic of Simone is posted on IG, she receives plenty of male attention, including a private message from Chris. Simone can feel the heat through his words and decides to reconnect. Soon old insecurities seep in, and Simone questions if she’s too afraid to get burned again to take another risk on Chris.

**This is a follow-up to Chemistry and the beginning of Lipstick Diaries**

Goodreads / Amazon


“What do you want?”

“I don’t know,” I answered quickly.

Chris sighed. “You know what you want. Still the same frustrating Simone. Too afraid to live. To enjoy the here and now. It’s a Friday afternoon, and I’m here for the weekend. Can we be real for once?”

Incensed at his bite, I hit back. “Really? From what I remember, I was always real. You were the one pretending.” I pushed my chair back. “If I’m so frustrating, you can take your tired ass back to New York. Sorry for wasting your time.”

He quickly put his hands up. “Simone, calm down. Please. Sorry. Guess I’ve been wishing so long to talk to you, I’m about to blow it because I am demanding and determined when I want something.” Chris admitted sheepishly, “Might even be a little aggressive when it comes to wanting you.”

I ducked my head slightly to hide my blush at his honest admission about still wanting me. “Let’s not forget impatient.”

“Oh no, that’s you.” He pointed with his fantastic smile, softening his retort. “I would’ve waited forever to be with you.”

Not quite able to meet his eyes, I replied quietly, “Sometimes I wonder if we confused lust for love. Everything escalated so fast for us.”

“Never for me. I wanted you since that first day of class. I’ve been with women, been in love a time or two, even had a wife, but you affect me like no one ever has.” He placed his hands under the table but not before I caught the trembling.

“Affect? Not affected? Not past tense?” I shook my head and moved my cup to the side. “After all these years, you can’t possibly still feel the same?”

He searched my face earnestly. “Why is that hard for you to believe? You wouldn’t have asked to see me if you didn’t feel something for me. Like you said, it’s been years.”

“Do you have a girlfriend?”

Chris grinned. “I plan to after this weekend.”

I wagged my finger. “You’re not going to get me caught up anymore.”

“Then why am I here?”

Thinking of the Lipstick Diaries and what they would tell me to do, I inhaled deeply and glanced around the half-empty coffee shop. I knew exactly what I wanted when I noticed he liked my pic.

“Why am I here, Simone?” His brow furrowed deeply. “Did you ask me here to tell me you’re getting married or some crazy shit? If that’s the reason, you didn’t have to bother. Figured that would happen for you sooner or later since that’s all that seems to fucking matter to you.”

“Who’s the one still mad, now?” I leaned closer, his anger making me even hotter for him. “I want you one last time. This weekend. You and me. Nothing but sex.”

Author Bio:

I recalled reading romance ever since I was a young child and would sneak and read the Western love stories my grandmother kept on her bedside table. Although I didn’t understand half of the words I read at the time, something about those books captured my attention. As I grew older, my love of romance expanded to other genres, and I became a fan of anything remotely related to reading and books, such as libraries, bookstores, and the coffee shop around the corner. I love to travel and have lived in several cities, including New Orleans, Washington D.C., and Houston, and continue to find inspiration for my stories from every place I’ve had the fortune to visit or inhabit.

I want my readers to escape their realities and embark on a journey of self-exploration and love when they delve into my books. I’ve loved reading fiction, thrillers, and romance for years. Although my original (and still) writing interest was YA and self-help books, I received a surprise text one Valentine's Day, and wrote the very first chapter of a romance novel that day. And I became forever inspired to write spicy love stories - with a twist.

Upon his father’s mysterious assassination, young Haru reluctantly becomes ruler—Tain—of his once-fearsome island nation.

But across the ocean, an alliance of old enemies has formed, led by a madman bent on righting old wrongs. Enigmatic and fanatical, Reius decries the Cryori and their living gods, determined to erase their influence and beliefs.

He fingered a tendril of auburn hair that had escaped her ponytail and fallen across her cheek. “Your expressions are as changeable as the clouds. What were you just thinking?”

He was close enough now for her to feel the heat from his body, and the forest stilled. Her being filled with a fevered waiting.

A woman laughed, her voice a raucous cawing, and Riga blinked. A party of hikers tramped along the trail beneath them. Someone below made a joke about mountain lions.

Riga relaxed onto her elbow. “I was thinking about an old movie called The Bishop’s Wife – the original version with David Niven and Cary Grant and Loretta Young.”

“Good movie,” he said. “It had a wine bottle that magically refilled itself. Port, I think. A bit sweet for my tastes, but this port was –” He stopped at Riga’s look. “What?”

Nonplussed, she stared. “You’ve just… taken my conversational thread in a completely different direction.”

“Sorry. You wanted to say something else about the movie?”

“Forget it.”

“No really, go on.”

“No.” Riga struggled not to laugh. “I don’t want to anymore.”

He sighed. “Okay. Let’s pretend I didn’t say anything about the wine bottle, even though it is the best part of the movie. You said you were thinking of The Bishop’s Wife. And I said, ‘really?’”

“Okay. What I was thinking was how sad it was that when the angel left, nobody remembered he’d ever been there and caused all those miracles to happen in their lives. They thought they’d just done it on their own.”

Donovan nodded. “I don’t think it mattered that the characters didn’t remember him. Their lives had been changed. Perhaps it was best they thought that they’d done it themselves.”

“I suppose,” Riga said, unconvinced. “But the movie was true in one sense – that’s the nature of the metaphysical experience. You can’t hold onto the experience. It comes and goes in a flash. You understand deep in your soul that something marvelous has happened, but you’ll never be able to prove or explain it.”

#Review: CURLED UP WITH THE EARL by Amy Rose Bennett


4 of 5 stars

Crown spy, William Lockhart, the Earl of Kyle, is pretending to be a groom to gather evidence in an ongoing murder mystery. Little did he realize that the lovely Lucy Bertram would be such a distraction to the investigation. Will is investigating her father because of his expertise in poisons, but he's surprised to find that Lucy is also an expert in plant poisons. Can the shy beauty be an unwitting pawn in her father's scheme, or is there another villain Will has yet to uncover?

This was an enjoyable story, although the romance between Will and Lucy was more of an insta-love story. I would have liked the attraction phase to last a little longer before the passionate kissing. The plot moves along at a good pace, although I knew who the villain was early on. There were numerous twists and turns before Will and Lucy get their HEA.

I voluntarily read the advanced reader copy, and all opinions are my own.

Interview with Marguerite Ashton, BLINDSIDED


Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?

Yes. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to post on your blog.


BlindSided is about Lexi Archer. She’s eighteen, and her entire world is in a tailspin. When we first meet Lexi, she wakes up in a hospital bed, handcuffed to the rail, and realizes she doesn't remember the events from the previous night. Once she’s released from the hospital, Lexi's transferred to the Milwaukee County Jail, where she's informed about her pending charges for first-degree murder.


Of course, she’s in shock, and throughout the story, we see Lexi trying to cope with her mental health diagnosis while trying to figure out what happened. 


This book is the first in The Forgotten Daughter series. All books in this series will focus on mental health.


Do you have a favorite character?

Yes. I try not to have a favorite character in any book I write, but with all ten titles, I have not succeeded. 


My favorite one for BlindSided is Jackson- Lexi’s father. He has been stuck in an ongoing nightmare for years while trying to do his part as a dad to Lexi. After an incident involving his daughter, he’s forced to put aside his “victim card feelings” and do everything in his power to try and protect her.


Have you ever had a minor character evolve into a major one? Did that change the direction of the novel at all?

Yes. It was in one of my crime fiction novels, Promised Lies. The character who started out as a minor in my outline turned into a major character. But he didn’t overshadow my protagonist. Instead, the character worked in tandem, making the story even more powerful. 


Powerful enough to keep him in the second novel.


What factors influenced your decision to self-publish your book(s)?

One of the factors that influenced my decision to self-publish was wanting to keep writing at a pace that would allow me to write and share my stories. As a writer, all I do is think. Scenarios, what would be the end result if this happened? I had so many stories to get out of my head that I learned quickly that the best way to process an idea was to keep a notebook with me just in case. 


I was afraid that if I didn’t write down the idea or a scene, I would lose my chance to try and create a story. Have I had ideas that were totally lame? Absolutely. I’d push it to the side and put it in the “maybe later” pile.


So, I went through the process of creating my own business, Criminal Lines Media LLC.

What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?

My writing process-it depends on the story. It depends on my writing mood. Am I in the constant writer flow with the words I need at the ready being typed onto the page? Or am I going to work harder (I always set a four-hour time block to write), sitting at my desk, and staring at my laptop? Hoping to complete a chapter.


I must have space, quiet, or a movie which depends on my writing mood. A door to close, allowing me to shut out all the noises going on in my home. Thank goodness for my husband. We work in shifts. The above is my process for writing my first draft.


For edits, classical music is what I listen to stay focused on any manuscript. 


Besides Amazon, are there any other sites where your books are for sale?

Yes. I have some of my books on Barnes and Noble and Apple Books. 


What advice would you give a new author just entering into the self-publishing arena?

The advice I’d give new authors deciding to self-publish is to write and keep on writing if you’re in it for the long haul. Working with a writing mentor, editor, and an experienced cover artist with a portfolio is a good start. That is what worked for me. From one author to another, I encourage you to find what works for you. 


Take the time with your book. Have someone else read your book to help catch mistakes. Having a second or third pair of eyes reading your manuscript helps. Will we catch every mistake before the first print? Not likely. But after you’ve had time away from the book you worked so hard to write, go back and read the one for sale. Use this as an opportunity to see what you have missed. 


The pressure that was there prior to publishing is no longer an issue. However, if you can take that time with a reading buddy and if there are any mistakes, update your published book file if you’re up for it. 


The best thing ever for us writers is to hope that we catch everything we need during rewrites. Keep on, keeping on!


Besides writing, do you have any other passions?

I love building dollhouses!


Some fun facts about you, which do you prefer – dogs or cats? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or Tea? Talk or Text? Day or Night?

The fun facts about me are I have my fur baby, an old English bulldog named Pepper. I love vanilla with hot fudge. Decaffeinated tea while I continue to enjoy being a night owl!


What’s next for you?

I’m focused on my upcoming new releases for 2023. Also looking forward to taking a few days off to finish my latest dollhouse kit.

#Excerpt: LOVE ALL by Liza Malloy

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Liza Malloy will be awarding a $15 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

College students Nate and Olivia are a perfect match on the courts—and in the sheets. Everywhere else, they’re polar opposites and sworn enemies. But as the chemistry builds, a figure from Olivia’s past unexpectedly pops back into her life and the couple realizes they have more in common than they thought. Are these star-crossed lovers doomed to repeat their parents’ mistakes, or can they build a life together once the final set is played?

This book is a standalone, steamy, new adult/college, sports romance, 77k words. Tropes include enemies to lovers, he falls first, and billionaire.


Olivia stopped abruptly and I nearly slammed into her chest as she swiveled to face me.

“I don’t get it,” she said. “Last night, you couldn’t have been less interested. And now you’re threatening to stalk me?”

I hadn’t expected that. “Not interested? I am the picture of interested when it comes to you. You just caught me off guard last night. I’m used to this—to you hating me. So when you suddenly seemed to be coming on to me, I just wanted to make sure it was for real and that you weren’t being forced to seduce me by some brilliant terrorist. Despite what you think about all of us guys, consent still matters to most of us.”

Her eyebrows furrowed together as she tried to piece together everything I’d just said. “I don’t hate you.”

“You’ve literally told me you hate me at least a dozen times.”

She rolled her eyes. “Well, I don’t. You’re annoying and arrogant and entitled and demanding and self-absorbed and—”

“Olivia,” I interrupted. “You started to tell me that you don’t hate me, but all of these words suggest otherwise.”

That earned me a half smile.

“You frustrate me. But I think I could see us being friends. Except…”

“Except you want to jump my bones every time you see me?”

She scowled.
