Markus Reeves is sucking. Big-time. Toiling away on a minor-league hockey team hundreds of miles away from home, he's watching his dreams of an NHL career fade away. Add in the lingering guilt he has over the dramatic demise of his relationship with college girlfriend, Mekena, and he's a mess on and off the ice.

But the family of his heart, the Sinclairs, won't let Markus suffer any longer. When he arrives himself back in Nashville for a trial run on the Assassins, it feels like his life may be making a turn for the better. If only he could get Mekena to forgive him...

Mekena Preston has been hurting since fleeing Nashville following the horror of Markus's betrayal with her sister. Now a professional photographer, Mekena finds herself in the same place at the same time with Markus to celebrate Lucy and Benji Paxton's wedding. Neither of them has been able to move on—and they're starting to wonder if they really want to.

They're headed for a face-off at the altar unless they can confront their past and unearth the truth about what really happened on that fateful night.

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.



I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.




I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!




When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.




I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?

New Release: Filthy Rich (Blackstone Dynasty Book 1) by Raine Miller



Billionaire Caleb Blackstone lives in the glamorous world of wealth and success, with every material luxury. But the moment he sees Brooke Casterley, none of that matters. Caleb is filled with a raw, undeniable need that he can’t ignore…for a girl who is so completely different from everything and everyone he’s ever known.
Only Brooke isn’t looking for love. She knows all too well just how much damage the wrong guy can do. Still, what sane, broke British girl can resist the charms of an incredibly sexy, chivalrous billionaire? What starts as flirtation quickly turns into all-consuming passion. Nothing could have prepared her for the searing heat of Caleb’s touch—or just how much she craves him.
Their whirlwind romance is the stuff of high-society fantasy—but for every moment of pleasure, there is a cost. Past mistakes and tragedy shadow them both…and falling for him might be the kind of trouble she can’t afford.
Excerpt:
My father always said I would know when the right woman came along. He was such a wise man. When it happened, I didn’t even question it because the process was so effortless. I just fell into her . . . because my heart knew her right away.
Knew she was the one for me.
I’d known her for years actually. She came to Blackstone Island to live with her grandmother after her parents were killed in a car crash. A devastated fifteen-year-old trying to adapt to a new life in a new place, trying to find where she fit in to a world so different from where she’d come—a forty-square-mile resort island off the Massachusetts coast where her grandmother ran the household at Blackwater, the family ancestral home.
Should have known of her, that is.
Our paths didn’t cross that I am aware of, but it’s possible. I rarely visited the island in those days because I was a twenty-three-year-old junior executive fresh out of Harvard Business School, learning everything I could about the family business. I traveled the world, enjoying the excitement of international boardroom deals by day and socializing at off-hours business affairs by night. I worked hard at both. Affairs, liaisons, one-night stands had all come and gone without a backward glance. Nameless faces and unremarkable encounters filled my nights whenever I wanted them to. The hopping nightlife of the big cities with even bigger players vying for a piece of the pie became my normal. I embraced every aspect that came with the lifestyle. Wealth, sexual favors, a certain celebrity born out of my name, all collected with barely any effort. For the next eight years, I had the world in the palm of my hand as I went about amassing a personal fortune in addition to increasing the family coffers.
Or so I thought.
I didn’t yet know what was missing from my life. Until her. And then, when I realized exactly who she was, and how fate had gotten the last laugh on me, it was already far too late. She’d bewitched me utterly. And furthermore, I knew she had no idea who I was or what ties connected us.
Maybe that’s what made her so intoxicating?
I didn’t know and I didn’t care because it made absolutely no difference to me. I wanted her with a primal desire I could barely understand, yet I embraced that desire wholeheartedly because I was incapable of doing anything else with it. How could I not? She had enchanted me.
However, once my brain managed to catch up, it wasn’t quite so effortless to accept this new and unfamiliar reality of feeling something for a woman beyond the unquestioning curiosity of when and if we might fuck.
I struggled against the idea of her at first for a few reasons. She was too young. My mother would never approve of us together. Others in my world would probably chew her up and spit her out, destroying her sweetness. But I soon found out my heart didn’t give a flying fuck about any of those reasons. The heart wants what it wants, and I’d discovered that for my heart, “want” was all wrapped up in the package that was Brooke Ellen Casterley.
The death of my father from the evils of cancer was an eye-opener for my siblings and me. Money can buy a lot of things, but it can’t stop the grim reaper from calling on you if it’s your time to go. Death was called the great equalizer. And it truly was. Wealth is a trivial thing when it’s only extra fuckin’ zeros on a balance sheet that makes any difference between lives lived. Doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor when you die, because none of it counts at the end. You leave this life the same way you come into it. You go out alone and take nothing. “There has to be more to life than making money, son,” he told me at the end. He took hold of my hand and squeezed as hard as his frail strength could manage so as to make me understand the importance. He had regrets and wanted to share with me what he’d learned to prevent me from making the same mistakes. I understood him clearly.
The most essential value my father tried to teach me along with my brothers and sisters was the idea of family. Family took precedence over money. “Take care of the family first and the wealth will grow, Caleb,” he said.
A strong family moving forward was the only thing that truly meant anything at the end of the day.
The Blackstones had been here on the island since the days when the Mayflower made its treacherous journey to the untamed American shores. As the eldest son it was my duty to make sure the Blackstones would still be here a hundred years from now.
My plan to fulfill my duty included her. It wouldn’t work any other way for me. I knew it the first time I ever felt the heat of her eyes as they burned me from across the room.
I knew it down in my bones.
I was going to marry that lovely, beautiful girl from England, and she would be mine.

Review:

Raine Miller is one of my favorite authors. I have read and loved all of her books.

I was very excited when I it was announced that she was writing a new series that would and couldn't wait to read it!

Filthy Rich is the first book in this new Blackstone Dynasty series

Caleb Blackstone is the CEO of his father's company. He is still mourning the loss of his father and is fully engrossed in work. There is no time in his life for a relationships.

When he meets Brooke Casterley at a dinner party he attends, he is immediately interested in her.

Brooke has showed Caleb to step back and enjoy life while living it and have fun.

There are issues that they both have to deal with, but it's done together as a team.  You can tell how much Caleb is in love with Brooke throughout the story.

I thought when he said to her that "when he met her it was like the shades were drawn open to let in the sunlight after being in the dark for years" was beautiful. 

I loved reading this story very much and didn't want to put it down. 

I also enjoyed meeting the other characters in the story.
Caleb's siblings as well as Brooke's Aunt Nan and Caleb's Uncle Herman are characters I would very much like to read more about in the future. 

I am very much looking forward to reading the next story in this series, Filthy Lies, which will be James and Winter (Caleb's sister's) story.




About The Author:


Raine has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop with the reading. Partly because she now writes her own romance novels in addition to reading them. Granted, Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy, hero never goes out of fashion. Never ever! Writing books pretty much fills her days now and she's always busy. Raine has a prince of a husband, two brilliant sons, and two very bouncy Italian Greyhounds to pull her back into the real world when the writing takes her too far away. 

She loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books.

REVIEW:

I have been a fan of Jennifer Probst's books. 

I have loved the Searching For series since reading the first book, Searching for Love!

This is the fifth and last book in the series. It can read as a stand alone, but as you read it there are the characters from the previous books. Reading the books before this one can help you understand more of the history between the characters.

This is the story of Isabella MacKenzie (Izzy) and William (Liam) Devine. We see Izzy throughout the series. While reading it, I had hoped that Izzy would have a stroy, like others that have read the series and here it is,

Iabella is the twin sister of Genevieve. Genevieve's story is book number 3 in the series, Searching for Beautiful. Izzy has always seemed like a loner, who keeps to herself. In this book we are told her history and what has made her the way she is.

Izzy and Liam had met six years before the book starts. They had instant chemistry and attraction to each other, that leads to a one night stand. Liam wanted to explore the feelings they had for each other, but Izzy made a decision that afterwards realized it was the wrong decision. 

William (Liam) Devine is the police offer partner of Arilyn's boyfriend, Stone Petty. He has also been in previous stories, but we just get a glimse of his character. He is a very strong personality and has always hoped things had turned out differently with Izzy.

When he sees that she is working at Kinnections, the matchmaking agency that Kate and the other women own, Liam is interested in wanting to work on having a relationship with Izzy instead of dating other women. She stole his heart six years prior and he wants her.

Izzy is reluctant to go out will Liam, but after his persistance, she does and the relationship builds. 

I really enjoyed this story. I am sad to see the series end, but loved this one, just as I have loved the others. It was enjoyable reading to see the relationship of Izzy and Liam blossom after seeing each other after years of being apart. The part where they wind up adopting puppies and they help each other take care of them was my favorite. I loved the puppies names also with the tribute to Star Wars with their names Han and Leia.

I would definitely recommend reading this book and the others in the series!!! You will enjoy them all as I have!!!

Available Now! Yankee Tenacity (Mayson-Dickson Mystery Series Book 2) By Jocie McKade. Including character interviews and promo video!



Blurb:

Following the latest cryptic message that might lead them to the truth about their parents, Emme Mayson and Jackie Dickson are pulled into another murder investigation when a man dressed in a kilt falls from the sky onto their truck.

As if a dead body isn't enough, FBI Special Agent Chris Meechum and sexy caretaker Sam Fender try to rein in their sleuthing, but the sisters are determined to solve this murder. Men in kilts, Renaissance Faires, and a few mobsters in all the wrong places complicate the case.

Emme Mayson is a Southern charmer from Alabama. Jackie Dickson is a straight-forward professional from Boston, they aren't exactly a match made in heaven. The only thing keeping them from starting another war between the states is the mystery surrounding their parents, and their own lives.

Mayson-Dickson - Northern logic, Southern charm, and murder!





Yankee Tenacity Excerpt:

Jackie Dickson glanced behind her at the long truck bed. "Why would you buy a pisser like this?"

"Don't you be calling my pickup a pisser. That is just not nice." Emme patted the dashboard. "I like Cleo, and I've missed having my truck."

"Cleo? You realize this is a machine, right? Nuts, bolts, an engine, nothing more." Just when she thought her "maybe" twin sister, that was still to be determined, was going to be tolerable to live with, she goes all Alabama redneck.

"At least, it's more practical than that little skateboard you bought." Emme snarled at her.

"Skateboard? That blue beauty is a Z4 BMW roadster that tops out at a 165 MPH." Patting the dashboard of the truck sarcastically, she moaned. "What does this tank do? A slow crawl through Dixie?"

"It ain't all about the speed. Cleo can pull a boat, haul anything you want, lets me see over traffic, and as a bonus, I can run right over your puny little Beamer." She smiled.

Such was life with Ellie May Clampett. Jackie wondered what karmic debt she owed to have been sent here. It must have been a whopper.

"Did you put those coordinates into the GPS?"

"No, I'm just riding shotgun, while throwing biscuits to Jethro in the back."

Emme swerved a bit to the right, driving through the center of a huge pothole. The sudden impact jolted Jackie off her seat, crunching her elbow against the door. Then a loud thud hammered the back of the truck sending a shudder through the metal. The truck swerved, and Emme fought the wheel.

"Being a smart ass is one thing, trying to kill me is another." Jackie snapped.

"It wasn't me," Emme pulled the steering wheel hard. "I think we blew a tire." Easing the truck onto the side of the road, she pushed the four-way lights on and slid out. Tilting her head to one side, she looked at the tires, gave a shrug, started to walk to the back and stopped dead in her tracks.

Emme's hazel eyes grew large, the color drained from her tanned face and every part of her body was frozen into place.

This was one of those moments when Jackie had to decide if she really wanted to look behind her or not. They probably ran over some poor woodland animal. 

Those beasts were all over the place down here in the south. It's remains were probably scrambled over the side of the truck, and this miserable humidity would make it start stinking.

Emme stood on tip-toes, tilted her head to one side, and crooked her finger motioning Jackie to get out. Damn, there was no way of getting out of seeing what carnage was underneath the truck. Shoving open the door, she stepped onto the gravel shoulder, turning.

"Holy shit, what is that?"

"I think it's a body."

They walked toward the bed of the truck where booted feet hung over the side. The edge of the truck's bed was now a funky 'U' shape, the feet were perched at odd angles, and the branches of several pine trees nearly covered the rest of the body. At least, Jackie hoped there was a rest of the body.

"No. Hell no. Not another dead body. Seriously? Who the hell did we piss off so bad?" Jackie shook her head. Three dead bodies in a matter of weeks wasn't normal. Normal? Ha! It was downright screwed up.

"Eww, eww," Emme peered into the truck bed first. "That is nasty." Walking to the back, she stepped up on the bumper.

"What are you doing?" If she thought it was nasty why was she getting an even better look?

"Huh, will you look at this." Two cars sped past, their breeze making Emme hang onto the tailgate. "What do y'all think this is a NASCAR race?" She shouted after them.

Jackie hesitated. They'd seen enough mangled bodies recently to last a lifetime. Just a few weeks ago, they hadn't known each other existed. Jackie was a happy executive with a pharmaceutical company in Boston, and Emme was an architect working in Alabama. Then they both received a cryptic letter to come to Washington, D.C.
Since then a man was assassinated in front of them, they'd been shot at, moved to a 'safe' house by some agency - they didn't know which one - told their recently deceased parents were spies, and decided to open a private investigation office as a way of hiding their search for the truth about their parents. That was all it was supposed to be a PI agency that acted as a good cover story in their search. PI credentials opened doors.
Then they solved a high profile murder after a dead body slammed into them. That gave them a good paycheck, let them help the local cops put a murderer behind bars and put them square in the PI business. They had managed to keep their names out of the paper, barely. Publicity wasn't a good thing for people in a jacked-up witness protection program.
Jackie was hoping for nice little cases that involved cheating spouses or worker's comp fraud, not real dead bodies.

Standing on the bumper beside Emme she looked at the surprisingly intact body. It was a man in his mid to late thirties, Caucasian, brown hair tied in a ponytail, and dressed in, wait, what? A Scottish kilt.

"What the hell?" They exchanged glances. Jackie took one of the pine branches and lifted the kilt.

"What are you doing?"

"I'm checking to see if he was a real Scotsman." She dropped the branch.

"And you think looking at his junk is going to tell you? That is just rude." Emme jumped down just as a convertible sports car stopped.

"Hey, sweet thing do you need some help?" The driver's bald head glistened in the sun, his neon blue mesh tank top had been blown to an odd angle off one shoulder, and he was in serious need of a shave. He gave the engine a few revs.

"We sure do, honey." Emme pointed to the truck. "We could use some help dumping this dead body." The man the floored the convertible for all it was worth.

Did her sister really just tell that man there was a dead body in their truck? Yes, dammit she did.

"You know that man is calling the cops right now."

"My call will trump his." Emme smiled. "I have Agent Meechum's private number."


M-D Interview Jackie Dickson - The Northern Sister:

Thank you for hosting me today. My name is Jackie Dickson and I'm the featured character in Jocie McKade's Mayson-Dickson Investigations cozy mystery series.

That sounds intriguing, why Mayson-Dickson?

That was not my idea, in fact, I hate the name. It was apparently picked by my father, a man I never knew existed.

Wait, your dad picked your name, but you didn't know him?

That's correct. I received a letter summoning me to a law office in Washington, D.C. Little did I know that day would change my entire life. I was introduced to a woman that was supposed to be my sister, my twin sister, can you imagine?

You have a twin sister you didn't know about?

Apparently. But I have my doubts that we are sisters. I mean the woman is an annoying redneck from Alabama. She swaddles herself in pink and wears, oh man, she wears a NASCAR hat. I think she's fixed grits a few times too, I can smell the things.

What brought you together?

A bullet. Yeah, blunt I know, but I'm from Boston it's how we are. The day we met in that lawyer's office, a sniper took the man out. Damn, it was ugly. He did manage to utter some strange message that we are working on deciphering. Jocie, our author says that will be worked out in book two - maybe.

We were given new identities and told to head to a new location. The next thing we know, there's a dead body washing across Emme and we are tangled up in a murder investigation.

Why were you given new identities?

Hell if I know, it had something to do with our parents. Apparently, they were both involved in some bad-ass government black ops work and, man, this is hard to talk about. They split up and they split us up to protect us. At least, that's what little bit we were told before that sniper bullet took out our only source of information. In spite of not really liking each other, we are working together to find out the truth about our parents.

So, in the middle of all this, you two start at PI firm?

Why not? We found that we are really good at solving murders and using our PI credentials is a great way to investigate our parents.

Tell us about those delicious men in your new life.

First there is Fender, he came with the new house. He is a beach bum that lives in the cottage and is the caretaker, but I suspect he is more than that. The man is nothing I would ever have even given a second glance too in Boston. Here, however, I don't know maybe it's the beach air, but I'm having a hard time keeping my distance.

Then there is Agent Meechum working locally on assignment for the FBI. He is a true pain in Emme's ass. The man dogs her like a puppy. I think we drive him crazy.

And then we have Zack, we sort of inherited him and he is proving to be very valuable.

Plus there is, what? What? Jocie is giving me that annoying throaty thing, you know when you need to shut up. I don't know why she can't just say 'shut up'. I think that crazy Southern sister of mine is getting to her.

If you'd like to know more, just head over to Amazon and snag a copy of Mayson-Dickson, The Line is Drawn.

Jocie is giving away an ebook of Mayson-Dickson!

M-D Character Interview With Emme Mayson - the Southern Sister:

Hey, y'all my name is Emme Dickson. I'm the Southern half of Mayson-Dickson Investigations. I'm glad you invited me over.

What did you think when you met you Boston sister?

When I first met her? Honestly, I didn't think much of her. I mean, whew, she was all power suit and condescending attitude. After a while though I discovered she was a pretty awesome lady - for a Yankee. Plus, we still don't know if we're really sisters or not. You see someone, we don't know who, seems to have tampered with the DNA test we took.

Tampered with a test? Any idea of who that might be?

Honestly, no. I mean who would want to mess around with DNA test? That's alright, I can get another one.

The lawyer that summoned both of you was shot and killed, and didn't answer all your questions. Do you have any ideas what's really going on?

That poor, poor man. A sniper put one right between his eyes. He managed to croak out a final word or two before he transpired, but neither Jackie nor I had a clue what he meant. The next thing we know this scary secret agent woman Sydney, was ushering us out the door.

The only thing we know is that our parents were afraid and tried to protect us. They split up and they split us up to keep us safe. Our quest now is to find out who they really were, and why someone might have killed them and is likely trying to find us.

Do you think your parents were spies?

We don't know, but we've made a good start on finding out.

On your first walk in your new location you stumbled on a dead body. Did that make you want to pack your bags and leave?

Ewww, that body smelled like a dead pig on a hot August day. I swear every time you mention it, I recall that smell. To answer you, no it didn't make me want to leave, it made me want to find out who killed him.

Did Jackie feel the same way?

She did, but she sure wouldn't admit it. It took a few margaritas to convince her.

Tell us about the two men that stumble into your lives at your new location?

First, there is Fender. He is the caretaker of the property we live in and he is a cutie. The man is all beach wave hair, tanned body and he has a thing for Jackie.

Then there is Agent Chris Meechum. He is on special assignment for the FBI and this is one hot agent, let me tell you.

Neither man wants us to start our PI business, but we have a secret weapon - Zack. I just got the loud clearing throat signal from our author Jocie, so you'll have to read the book to find out about him.
Thanks for having me today. 

I hope y'all will head over to Amazon and put yourself up a copy of Mayson-Dickson, The line is Drawn, Book One. Grab a sweet tea, and a comfy chair and enjoy.
