 Spotlight on #Newbook

Beaumont Guthry, in his short time in the sport, prepares to step out of the shadow as a backup quarterback and into the spotlight as he takes over the Chicago Grizzlies. The team may be desperate for a quarterback, but Beau fears his style might get him benched before the first pass is in the air. For Beau, it will be the first time his father’s money won’t help to smooth over any missteps he makes.

The thirst for knowledge is what has kept Esme Carmichael in college for the last eight years. When her parents draw a line in the sand, forcing her to pick a degree and graduate, Esme realizes her biggest worry in the last decade has been could she swing more than two hours sleep a night.

Esme, instead of the four walls and security of a classroom, is faced with the future, one which petrifies her.

Meeting Beau seemed to be the perfect distraction she needed. What she didn’t count on was his past derailing their chance for a relationship—a relationship, she nor he signed up for. It was supposed to be a simple deal—sex—no strings, no complications.

 #Start the series #today

In book one of Love by the Yard: In Chicago they say Speed Kills, or at least they have for the last seven years since the handsome running back, Jerome Speed, led the Chicago Grizzlies to divisional and conference championships.

Danika Albright’s privileged upbringing has most people believing she wants for nothing. As the daughter of a self-made billionaire she shouldn’t, but her father never wanted his children to be spoiled and demanded they make their own way with little to no help from him. While working her way through school as a stylist, she crosses paths with a local football star with his own issues.

The pair work to keep their desires from molding their relationship, but when a paternity case tackles the star and the woman wants more than money, the relationship takes a hit.

Can Danika and Jerome look past what they know and take the time to discover what really happens when you fall in love with a person—one who wants you and not just your name?

Two people—two different backgrounds—one goal—to learn to love one yard at a time.

In book two of Love by the Yard: Offensive linemen are considered the silent protectors of the game. Always expected to be there, but never seen by the fans. Whether by accident or circumstance, Dalton Gresham has been known as the Blood Thirsty Bear of the Gridiron since his rookie year. With fans wearing number seventy-seven with fake blood dripped on it, can this giant in football shake his monster status?

Having hidden away at Lost Lake, Wisconsin, the last thing Willeen Fire needed was publicity. The tall, voluptuous woman has a beauty she hides behind flannel shirts and engine grease while staying off the grid. When Dalton first meets Willeen, the last thing he thought was she was a woman in need of protection. But as he falls for her, the natural instinct to protect is screaming in his ears.

Can Dalton stop being the monster he’s been labeled and become the one who will finally save Willeen from the man hunting her?

In book three of Love by the Yard: Ten years ago, Coach Xavier Jackson was poised to complete a lifelong journey. When he wasn’t picked up after the seventh round of the draft was over, he was left to wonder if his dreams of playing professional football were finally over. Instead, with a chance as a free agent he made good on his, but the lure of off-field activities led the tight end to make the worst decision of his life.

Chelsea Monroe was engaged to the best football player their little college had ever seen. She’d become part of his family, tasked with keeping his baby sister, Leeda, safe when he had to go away. But a visit between training put an end to everything, leaving her shattered and unwilling to give herself to anyone ever again.

Though a decade of focus on her career made her a sought after litigator, it kept her from making any personal connections. Chelsea decides to take a trip to Jamaica before her fresh start in Chicago, but instead of it being a break, it turns into a second chance.

Leeda Jackson has plans for her brother and the woman that should have been her sister.

Cain is magnetic, powerful, controlling—and hiding more than one secret. He promised Carly’s granddad he’d protect her. The old man took a chance on him when he was nothing but a kid with a record, and now he’s the multi-millionaire owner of a rival firm.

But Linc’s money can’t protect Carly from the men who’ll do anything to shut her down, or the secrets behind Drake Trucking. If she won’t sell out, the only way to keep her safe is to keep her close . . . and fight like hell.

I thought life was difficult enough when I fell for the girl, but it gets a whole lot harder when Jack comes home early and finds a beautiful stranger causing chaos in his house.

And a whole lot harder still when he falls for her too.

He’s the one guy on this planet I’d share my last supper with. I’d share it gladly.

I’m just not so sure how I feel about sharing Carrie Wells.

Happily ever after is a second chance away.

Each week on this blog we spotlight a series or collections of books from Authors or an author. This week series Spotlight is to highlight a popular Kimani author.

I want all women short tall round tan dark and all the colors of the rainbow to find their HEA. Not just this model type woman all REAL women. I want to see acceptance of the love that is part of my reality reflected in my books.

Ready for a deal and great new book? I know I am !!!! I love cowboys !! These cowboys aren’t just ranchers these Former Marines are here to save their Hometown after a storm flattens it.

#99cents for #Today

This Marine follows the rules. This cowgirl is all about breaking them.

After losing his best friend and CO, Matt, in combat, Brodie Bell didn’t think his spirits could sink any lower. He was wrong. One look at his and Matt’s storm-flattened hometown nearly levels him.

Los Vista needs a leader, and as Brodie takes the weight of the world on his shoulders, he comes up with a plan. Merge the two ranches left standing, pray for a good calving season…and keep his hands too busy to get busy with Matt’s sexy little sister.

Danica was in pigtails when Brodie and Matt went off chasing glory. Now she’s a woman with a broken heart, but if Matt knew of the depraved cravings Brodie ignites in her body, he’d haunt her from the grave.

As they work to mend miles of broken fences, Brodie fights to ignore Danica’s tiny cutoff shorts and mile-long legs—and to ignore the “weapon” that’s locked and loaded in his Levis. Because the last thing he wants is to dishonor his friend’s memory by ravishing the sweetest little cowgirl he’s ever laid eyes on.

Warning: Involves a sweet and sassy ranch girl who knows her way around a rope, and a Marine turned cowboy who’d like to tie her down and spank her until she begs for more.

Trouble is, the town is worse than a war zone after a storm ripped through it. Wydell and his platoon buddies are determined to rebuild and bring the people back to town, but how?

Since Anya Carter inherited millions and a lush estate from her grandparents, her phone is always ringing with requests to “invest” in people’s dreams. But this time her money manager has found something worth looking at—a small-town dream. After visiting Los Vista, her heart breaks for the ghost town and the people who’d once loved it.

Wydell is happy to take the millionaire debutante’s check and use it to rebuild. But she has ideas of a tiny home community for hipsters. As a Texan he believes vacation homes should be bigger and better, just like a woman’s curves. Each day he goes into battle against Anya, his control slips while he tries to keep his hands—and every other body part—off her.
Anya is determined to see her money spent on her terms, but when she argues with the hunky ex-soldier she wants to pull her hair out. She can’t deny he’s a complex man. When he isn’t drawing up detailed plans for the tiny homes, he’s working cattle—and her. Wydell raises more than her ire, and she is softening toward him. After all, building tiny houses together means being trapped in very close quarters.

Warning: Things can really heat up—even in small places. But there’s nothing small about this cowboy!

From the first moment Lauren Lake laid eyes on the handsome Cole Brady, she never wanted anyone but her older brother’s best friend. She just knew if she gave him enough attention Cole would finally notice her. All she had to do was be patient and let things happen. Well, her persistence finally paid off, but not in the way she dreamt it would.

His good looks always drew women and it was something Cole Brady was proud of until Lauren started getting an unexpected crush on him, but he wasn’t about to return her feelings. She was too young and inexperienced for him. He didn’t want to break her heart.

However, one night he did the one thing he vowed not to do and now he swore to do everything in his power to win back the woman he was secretly falling in love with.


From the outside Wesley Marsden has it all: wealth, good looks, and a genius level IQ, but these qualities hide the depths of his complexity. While he’s a man who’s strong, confident, and in control, he’s also a man obsessed with solving a family mystery and dealing with personal demons that have plagued his relationships for years.

Mia Careri is a special needs teacher; a woman who’s devoted her life to the care and education of other people’s children. Funny, beautiful, and intelligent, she has a job she loves and close friends who are like her family, but something is missing. A slew of failed relationships have her yearning for that connection, that feeling of intense love – the perfect man to have a future with.

When by chance or by fate, Mia and Wesley encounter one another in the most unlikely of settings, they realize that they might be each other’s salvation. As their fates collide over the course of a few months, neither of them will ever be the same again.


When the hunter becomes the hunted…

Serial-killer hunter Nick Shade built his legendary career chasing monsters—sadistic criminals with a gruesome thirst for death. When he rescued Montgomery detective Bobbie Gentry from horrific captivity and helped her reclaim her life, he didn’t intend to be a hero. Or a target. But now a copycat murderer haunts him, and reuniting with Bobbie is his best chance at neutralizing the threat.

Bobbie can’t forget the nightmares of her trauma—or the man who saved her. Working with Nick to outmaneuver the person behind a deadly vendetta feeds her hope that there’s more to her world than ghosts and destruction. Maybe joining Nick’s search for a killer is about gratitude. Maybe it’s nothing more than cold revenge. But the only way they can protect themselves is to trust each other.


A Spartan, a gypsy—masks for a night pure sex—and the birthmark which throws all anonymity out the window. Finally free after a nasty year-long divorce, Kailey Cox attends a masquerade party with the intention of one thing—remaining anonymous and finding a handsome man to bed. She discovers a Spartan warrior to accommodate her. Rand Paxton is drawn to the sexy gypsy he takes to his room. Seeing her birthmark, he believes he knows who the woman is. Confronting her, any doubt fades. Problem: For a man often in the spotlight and a woman who now prefers anonymity, can they make it work? Rand’s up for the challenge—he’d wanted her long before he discovered Kailey was Under the Mask.



Isaac Caldwell doesn’t trust emotions. Emotions made his brother abandon the company and guided his father’s lifelong need for revenge which is why he’s kept the unsettling feelings stirred by his administrative assistant, Kim Griffin, on permanent leave. But when he enlists Kim’s expertise with his plans to rebrand the company the feelings he mistrusts erupt into a passion that won’t be ignored.

After hustling in the streets nearly cost her everything, Kim walked away from the danger and easy money to pursue a life of stability she always dreamed of. She won’t fall for a man she can’t trust with her secrets, and even though her head warns loving Isaac is foolish, her heart won’t listen. Soon their business partnership skyrockets into a personal relationship neither expected. Before they can trust if their newfound happiness is a good deal a debt from the past needs to be repaid, and the cost could destroy the business, their love, and their lives.


Palm reader Darcy Kumar is cursed. She’ll be dead within a year, so why bother with love? After a brush with death she resolves not to squander what little time she has left. So when sexy firefighter Aiden Becker asks her out, she accepts. As long as she doesn’t have a child, the curse will end with her demise.

A Kachina healer and the last of his line, Aiden is compelled to pass along his gift to future generations. He doesn’t believe in the curse that Darcy thinks will finish her, but he has second thoughts after she has several close calls. He starts suspecting that her near misses aren’t accidents at all.

When they enlist the help of a powerful local witch, they learn there are even more sinister forces at work than just a curse. Someone’s gunning for Darcy. Will they find out who before it’s too late?

City girl Claudia Cade’s carefree life is plunged into chaos when a camping trip with her brother in the national forests of Northern California turns into a deadly dash for her survival.

A solitary world turned upside down…

Two lives linked by tragedy…

Claudia is desperate to heal from her traumatic loss, but can’t stop thinking about her run-in with evil….or the grizzled mountain man whose quick thinking and good aim saved her life. When she shows up on Shep’s doorstep again, she finds she isn’t the only one who can’t move on.

… saved by bliss.

The two begin an intense, passionate relationship of Dominance and submission, pleasure and pain, but with dark memories haunting them and decisions about the future rapidly approaching, Claudia can’t help but wonder…how long can they be each other’s haven?

People ask me about my momma all the time. Usually while squintin’ up their faces and looking down they noses at me like I smell bad or something; I don’t never smell nothing. “Where’s that bitch Tiny?” They ask. “When she comin’ back? That crook owe me two dollas and I want my money.” They talk about her right in front of my face. “She probably done run off with somebody elses man.” Or, “She prolly got drunk and fell in the river.” Somebody even said, “It was just a matter of time before she run off on her man and her girl. Them Maxwell’s are trash. All they do is drink, whore, and make babies.” I don’t never fight or argue cause they ain’t lying.

Tanina shocked everyone when she only had me. Wasn’t cause my daddy didn’t want more babies, that’s for sure. My daddy stayed tugging on her skirt and grabbing on her big titties. “I want a boy Tanina, I want a son.” My momma would swat him away and go down to the coloreds only speakeasy. It’s deep in the swamp and out of reach of the sheriff, the night riders, and wives waiting at home for husbands pissing away a weeks pay on rum and women like Tiny. The speakeasy is called Nukes Place. That’s on account of a big, black woman called Nuke owns the place. They drink, and dance, and fuck all night long as some half-assed band plays jazz music. Everyone is usually too drunk to notice how bad they sound. Daddy stayed sending me down into the woods to fetch my momma home. Sometimes she came willingly, sometimes she came a week later.

“Where is my beautiful momma?” They ask. She gone and run off I tell them just like Daddy told me to say. Every time I open my mouth and tell the lie, I think about the night my momma done me wrong. She done me so wrong that my daddy cried. My big, strong daddy never cries. The last time I seen my momma, Daddy was dragging her screaming into the woods. He had a spade in one hand and mommas hair in the other. Daddy and the spade came back. Momma did not.

@SethKingBooks #New to me #MM

On the recommendation of Amie Stuart, I decided to buy one of Seth King’s books. Currently I am in the middle of reading Straight and I’m liking what I am reading

In the rip-roaring 1960s, a withdrawn man named Fred Ecklund meets a kaleidoscopic soul called Harry Faulkner, instantly changing both of their lives. The next three decades are a harrowing and heartwarming period of danger, passion, and soul-deep love under the oaks of the oppressive Deep South. Brace yourself for acclaimed author Seth King’s most impactful story yet, a transcendent tale of heartbreak, resilience, and the astonishing habit of true love to bloom even in the darkest of hours.

Henry Morgan is a beer-drinking, arm-wrestling, 100% heterosexual American male who is still a little numb after a rough breakup from his longtime girlfriend. Ty Stanton is a bohemian arts student who has been openly, and uncomplicatedly, gay ever since he asked for his first wig for Christmas.

After a chance, butterfly-inducing encounter one autumn day, Henry starts to realize something strange: he might not be quite as straight as he’d always assumed. What follows is a breakneck adventure that upends both Ty and Henry’s lives for the long haul.

Sexy, fun and thought provoking, Seth King’s Straight is about all the love we can let into our lives when we dare to jump off the beaten path and veer a little off course

Housewife Rowena White’s new neighbor is attractive, rich and beguiling. She also happens to be a woman.

As Rowena’s obsession with Grace Arundel deepens, two women must decide how far they will go to protect a love they never even expected to blossom in the first place.

In acclaimed author Seth King’s Grace, witness a love so strong (and so forbidden), two women find themselves running to the end of the world to hold onto it.

I’m excited to announce that Seth King will be one of the many of authors in this event! I will be attending and I hope he brings copies of Straight because I’m going to want a signed one or three!

Seth King is a twenty-five-year-old American author. He enjoys reading, writing, traveling, and spending time with his family.

A battle with drug lords into human trafficking…

Former Navy Sea, Rafe Carver, was trained to not miss details and something about this couple seems…off. Instincts on high alert, Rafe digs to find the truth. Which turns out to be more than even he bargained for. Rafe will stop at nothing to keep naive Amanda alive preferably tucked safely between the sheets of his bed.

Two strong wills collide…

Rafe thought the biggest danger was the cartel, little did he envision the sultry Amanda, was as hard-headed and feisty as she was sexy. Convincing her of the dangers surrounding proves most challenging of all and there isn’t time for error or argument. Surviving each may be even more tricky than outmaneuvering the men after her.

Mike Carver, Marine Force Recon, has spent a lifetime uncovering deep, dark secrets. When Zaraiah Nelson crosses his path, he knows the beauty is hiding something tormenting her soul.

#Lessons From #IRAE2017 @AngelaKayAustin @CrystalBBright @ReanaMalori @heatherraebee

 

As many of you know I recently attended #IRAE and it was a blast meeting Facebook friends and #Authors  who I cyberstalk on the regular….all craziness aside I took some notes in the Panels given this year and I came up with a few great lessons that I’m going to #Pursue .

  1. I/R  is considered to be the redheaded stepchild of Romance. We have the Potential to grow  ( and we will grow),We #readers, bloggers and authors have to be bold and get to our local library system and get them to order the books we read on kindle in their Overdrive System and in paperback so someone new can be as crazy in love with our #IR  writers.
  2. Leave #Reviews. I m uber guilty about not doing this one but if you don’t see it on my Facebook page then I m not #oneclicking or recommending my friends to buy.
  3. Report any eBooks Claiming to be #IR. What IR romance isn’t is a romance between a person of Irish nationality and
  4. #IR is not a FAD. It’s here to stay like LGBT Fiction and Erotic Romance.
  5. People have underlying Kinks so if you’re not open to one story then find another that is more your style. If you are daring like me then embrace the experience.
  6. Authors have “Reader Base” this base determines what the author’s brand is and how steamy the books are gonna be.
  7. This POINT is IMPORTANT! Support your I/R Authors, Cons and Bloggers. Share their posts on Facebook, Drop a quick review on amazon or goodreads.
  8. The Final Panels were Hot topics: Box Set, 99cent model, and KU( Kindle Unlimited)
    • One author suggested that this should be an author only panel
    • Another author said that this needed to be address to the readers in Expo
    • Frankly this topic is interesting and I needed to understand how each author felt about both Trends currently in the Romance genre.
    • This panel for me I gained an understanding as to why in Business school have in Marketing as a requirement. A big chunk of marketing is learning about the 4P’s applying them. We discussed how important it is to
      • Have goals
      • Research the best price for your product
      • To create a ” Base” your crazy fangirls/guys of readers
      • The perception of your books. (Do you want to be known as a Tiffany author/Kmart author)
      • Don’t short change your base. They are your most demanding stalkers but they want to see you succeed.

If you haven’t checked out my Previous posts about the #Authors and # Divas of #IRAE2017  Links will be posted below .

These Ladies Deserve an Honorable Mention! Thanks for being patient with me !

You can’t fight love…There’s only one thing MMA fighter Gunnar Wells is more devoted to than his career, and that’s his mother, “Queen” Elizabeth. An elegant African American woman who adopted Gunnar and his two white brothers, Elizabeth was there when they needed her, and they’ll do anything for her. For Gunnar, that means running her hair salon when she suddenly falls ill. And if that’s not awkward enough for the champion fighter, he’ll have to work alongside Eboni Danielson, the other love of his life. The one he left behind to pursue his dream. The one he’s never forgotten…

Between the salon and her volunteer work, Eboni keeps busy to keep her mind off the man who broke her heart. So when Gunnar shows up again, she does her best to stay cool—on the outside. But the more she watches Gunnar step up and help out, the less she can deny her feelings. Soon Gunnar is doing everything he can to convince Eboni to give him a fighting chance. Can she trust him again—even when old secrets and new dangers come between them once more?

~They come to me in my dreams, giving me a glimpse of their final moments. I listen to the whispered pleas. See what is shown to me. I follow the restless souls across the globe and write their stories. For closure and to provide a happily ever afterlife. But, what of me?~ Piaget

A dream led her to the South of France. This one dream would serve as the foundation to build her latest work on. A determined C.P. Rance set out to give the sad woman from her dreams closure, and perhaps, a happily ever after life. Until the unexpected happened. Piaget Torrance, aka C.P. Rance, met an irresistible man.

A woman was the last thing Val Jaymes wanted or needed in his life. Especially not that pushy American who insisted on exploring a crumbling château. Her striking resemblance to the young restless soul whom wandered the property only further complicated matters.

The sparks between Piaget and Val could not be ignored or denied. Try as they might, the two were bound by something much stronger than mere chemistry. An unbreakable love capable of withstanding time. With Piaget’s trip coming to an end, the future of their budding romance weighs in the balance. Will C.P. Rance finally pen the most important story of her life?

Rumer Wilson married the love of her life ten years ago, has two beautiful children, and what she believes is a wonderful life to prove it. But, does anybody ever control love? Her world spirals into an unfamiliar place of uncertainty for everything she holds dear, when her husband falls in love with a woman hiding secrets.

Sebastian Ortiz has loved many women. Rumer is a means to an end. He doesn’t want to hurt her, but he needs her – for revenge on the man who hurt his sister – the sister he’s protected from harm his whole life.

Neither Rumer or Sebastian could imagine what comes next…

Darkness has never looked so beautiful.

Jaidon Swanson was not the person everyone thought he was. Over half of his face and body has been scarred since he was a young child. Passed around the foster care system, he’d been rejected, belittled, cast aside and bullied for as long he could remember. Just as he began to turn inward to the darkness trying to claim him, his life changed. He met HER and he would never be the same.

Kenya Norris had loved Jaidon from the first moment she stood in front of him as a protective shield. She never cared about his scars and accepted him no matter how he appeared. Leaving him behind to attend college almost broke her. She never forgave herself for keeping her feelings a secret.

Twelve years later, these two star-crossed lovers find each other again. But everything is not as it seems. Kenya has a secret—something she fears would make Jaidon turn away from her. Jaidon has shrouded his own terrible truths behind layers of shadow and lies. Once the truth is out, will it be the swansong of their budding relationship?

**Flawless is not a story for the faint of heart. While this is a contemporary, paranormal story with lots of romance, our Hero is not your typical Prince Charming. Be prepared for the darkness that resides within.**
