PLAY (A Stage Dive Novel) by Kylie Scott

PLAY is the second novel in Kylie Scott’s bestselling Stage Dive series. The first, LICK, told the story of Evelyn and rock and roll guitarist David. In PLAY, we get to know Ev’s friend Anne, who falls into a relationship with the band’s drummer, Mal, and from the start it’s right out of a romantic comedy. Here’s the set-up: Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast—at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she’d ever meet [...]

Delightful Eccentricities – guest post by Wendy Vella

Eccentricities, do you have any that you may not realize you have? Wendy does – enjoy her post! It wasn’t actually until I hung out the washing the other day and noticed that my pegs were color coordinated, (pink for underwear, blue for sweaters and jeans etc) that I realized I may just have a few issues that make me less than perfect. After this disturbing discovery I watched myself thoroughly for the next few days and began cataloging what I saw as anything unusual. Apparently I need to have books stacked with the spines meeting in a line (who knew) and my toast was cut in alarmingly even pieces right down the middle. Then there was the sofa/pillow allocation [...]

She’s taking over Crooked Creek ranch, her birthright, and turning it into something special. All that stands in her way is Eli Turnbull, a rugged, too-handsome cowboy who wants the land just as badly.

USA HEA review A Lady Awakened by Cecilia Grant

Reviewed By Mandi Schreiner, USA TODAY CAPTION Genre: Historical romance A Lady Awakened is the debut book by Cecilia Grant, and I’m in love with this author’s voice. It is hard to explain why I love her style of writing so much, but as I read I didn’t want to miss a single word. It is a similar reading experience as to when I read Joanna Bourne books. The way she creates her sentences and the way she creates such small moments that end up so powerful really captivate me. This story is different in terms of the plot and how things unfold. Martha Russell is a recent widow, and because she didn’t have any children during her marriage (her [...]
