Release Day: Lone Rider (The Montana Hamiltons #2) by BJ Daniels

When danger claims her, rescue comes from the one man she least expects

A cowgirl at heart, Bo Hamilton does her best thinking in wide-open spaces. So when money goes missing from the family foundation she runs—meaning one of her trusted ragtag employees is a thief—Bo rides into the Crazy Mountains to figure things out. But a killer hiding among the sawtooth ridges takes her captive…and isn't planning on ever letting her go.

Bo's disappearance gets folks thinking she's the guilty one who's run off with the money, but Jace Calder would bet his ranch that she's innocent. Not that he has any reason to trust the beautiful, spoiled senator's daughter. But she also gave his troubled sister a job when no one else would. For his sibling's sake, Jace is going after Bo and bringing her home to face the truth. But up in the mountains, he finds Bo at the mercy of a suspected murderer. As her only hope, Jace is about to find out what they're both made of.

Shaken and Stirred with a splash of dirty.
Candy Wilson arrives in St. Albert with one mission—to sign the next young, hot model to her modeling agency. She has no time for distractions and isn’t prepared for bartender Eric McKenna—the brother of her young client-to-be, Melissa. Eric challenges her on all counts, irritates her daily, and heats her body to boiling temperatures with just one touch. He’s hard to ignore and impossible to resist.

Eric McKenna will be damned if his baby sister signs any contracts with Candy Wilson. No way in hell will he allow anyone to whisk Melissa off to a foreign country and lead her on a path that’s not right for her. And yet Candy pushes him further than he’s ever been before and drives him crazy. Eric can’t control his need for her or the desire to engage with her … on so many levels.

Excerpt © Kacey Hammell, 2015

“Hey there. It’s Eric, right?”

He stalled and pivoted. Behind him was the one person he didn’t need to see right now. Melissa had talked about her enough that he knew all he needed to about her. And some shit he hadn’t cared to.

“Ms. Wilson. Hope you’re enjoying our little town here.”

She leaned against the wall of Abe’s Diner. “Little? This place is huge. I did enjoy some shopping this morning. The market a couple blocks over has some of the nicest things. I spent way more than I should.”

He bet she did. From what she’d shown at the bar yesterday, she had more money than she really knew what to do with. In his opinion, she’d earned it all by letting it all hang out in fashion magazines for the world to see. Wearing skimpy outfits and bathing suits, which to him was too much to be taken seriously. She had the looks for sure, but he questioned her morals.

“Well, I have to get back to the bar. Nice seeing you.”

“Oh, you couldn’t spare a few minutes to have coffee with me? There are a few things I’d love to talk to you about.” She sidled closer to him, a smile lighting her face, her eyes twinkling like stars in the evening sky.

He bet she was used to getting her way all the time.

She brushed a hand over his bicep. “Just a quick coffee, and maybe a bite to eat?”

The heat from her palm rushed through him. His fingers tingled and the urge to feel her warmth around him caught him off guard. He took a step back and shook his head. Damn her for getting to him. He needed to steer clear. She would do anything to take his sister away from here, even use her wiles to do it; he’d seen her flirting with Drew yesterday.

“Sorry, I don’t have time to entertain you. You’ll have to find someone else to keep you occupied, Ms. Wilson. Have a good day.”

Eric turned and strode away. He needed to keep a watchful eye on his sister and find a way to dig himself out of the hole he was in.

Neither would be easy, though.

Not with the distraction of Candy Wilson around to battle with.

His Touch - Summer in New York (Book 1) by Patty Blount

Summer in New York (Book 1)

About the Book

When a surly paramedic finds Kara Larsen‘s lost toddler, only to berate her for failing to mind her child, Kara is embarrassed and relieved she’ll never have to deal with that jerk again. Doesn’t he know being a single mom is a lot harder than it looks?! But when baby Nadia has trouble breathing one night, Kara’s frantic 911 call brings that same jerk right to her door…
FDNY paramedic Reid Bennett has a compulsion to help frantic parents. But after the way he over-reacted to the beautiful woman in the department store that day, she wants nothing to do with him. But it’s not his fault he keeps running into her all over the city…
When Kara bumps into Reid for the third time in a week, she can’t help but wonder if the mom she lost in 2001 is playing matchmaker. As Kara and Reid form a cautious friendship, he quickly becomes baby Nadia’s favorite person. But Reid has no interest in long-term commitment, or so he thought. So when Nadia’s father calls out of the blue and Kara agrees to see him, Reid realizes he has some triage to do if he hopes to keep his girls…
Author’s Note: I am so happy to be writing this sequel to the Christmas in New York series with fellow authors Jolyse Barnett and Jennifer Gracen. Jolyse is up next with book 2 in the series, His Kiss, and Jennifer’s His Love is book 3. My His Touch is the sequel to A Match Made At Christmas, which was the story of Kara’s sister, Elena, who comes home to New York to help Kara prepare for the birth of her child. I hope you’ll read all of the books in our series!

I just read His Touch, Book 1 in the Summer in New York series by Patty Blount and it was such a great book!

I had read the Christmas in New York series and loved the stories. A Match Made at Christmas is book 4 in the series. That is the story where Kara’s sister, Elena Larsen is the main character. Kara is a secondary character in A Match Made at Christmas, but I hoped that she might have a story of her own so we could see more of her. Kara gave birth to her daughter Nadia at the end of A Match Made at Christmas and says that her name Nadia means hope.

In His Touch, Nadia is eighteen months old and Kara is a struggling single mother. She is trying to juggle her work schedule with caring for her growing daughter. Kara and Elena lost their mother at the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. They both believe in signs from deceased loved ones. Elena had been getting signs from their mother, but Kara hadn’t as much. She is waiting for signs from their Mom that she is a good mother to Nadia, especially since she doesn’t feel like one at the moment.

Reid Bennett is a NYC paramedic. Kara meets him at the child CPR class he is giving and there is immediate attraction. There are a few times after they meet that Kara and Reid are in the same place, including the store where Nadia gets out of her stroller and Reid finds her. Since he is having a bad day, he is nasty to Kara. Not meaning to he says things that makes Kara think that her mom is sending her signs that she is a bad mother.  Kara says that her mom keeps sending her Reid (Mr. Judgmental).

Reid has his own issues to deal with. He lost his brother Kyle on 9/11, his daughter Erin died when she was 3 and he got divorced. He He isn’t ready to get into a serious relationship, especially with a woman who has a child. When he is upset he goes to the 9/11 memorial and talks to his brother. He even hears Kyle say that Reid should help Kara and give a relationship a try with her. He thinks that Kara might be a sign to him from Erin.

When Nadia’s father tells them about a possible health problem, Reid gets scared and backs away from Kara. He decides to face the fears that have been haunting him and tries to repair the broken relationship he has with Kara.  

There was so much emotion in this story. There were the post 9/11 feelings of loss the characters faced, how Kara felt about her mom and being a mom, as well as Reid’s apprehensiveness about being with Kara. I loved how they helped each other heal.

One of my favorite parts, and I have a few, is the part where Reid has a vision of a woman holding his daughter on her lap and reading to her. He realizes that even though he never met her, that it’s Kara’s mom. I also loved how the characters from the Christmas in New York stories were involved in this story.

I highly recommend reading this story, as well as the previous Christmas in New York stories if you haven’t already.

SEARCHING FOR ALWAYS by Jennifer Probst Blog Tour Review Stop

Searching For Always by Jennifer Probst
Searching For, #4
(June 30, 2015, Gallery Books)


New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst sparks a blissful mind-body connection as her sexy, satisfying (Kirkus Reviews) new series continues!

Shes an expert in helping others de-stress, but Arilyn Meadows is running on fumes. Along with her job counseling singles seeking soul mates at the Kinnections agency in Verily, New York, shes a yoga teacher, animal shelter volunteer, anger management therapist, and helping hand to her beloved grandfather. No time to find Mr. Rightbut after discovering her yogi boyfriend in a compromising asana, Arilyn would rather dog-sit for her honeymooning friend Kate than risk her heart on another downward dog. And when police officer Stone Pettyradiating masculinity and bad-boy attitudeis sent to her for mandatory lessons in cooling off when the job gets too hot, Arilyn vows to ignore his seductive glances and sexy grin. But theres no halting their sizzling flirtationa red-hot, high-speed chase thats breaking all the limits.

Searching for Always is the forth book in Jennifer Probst’s Searching For series. I was greatly anticipating reading Arilyn’s story and loved it as I have loved every story in the series.

Arilyn Meadows is the third partner at the Kinnections dating service with Kate and Kennedy. She does the computer programming, yoga instruction and anger management counseling. Arilyn is upset because she has just been hurt for the last time by her boyfriend of 5 years, Jacob. He was her yoga instructor and they had a relationship on and off until she caught him having sex with another woman.

Stone Petty is the police officer who was called when Genevieve was having trouble with her ex David the year before. Stone and Arilyn didn’t like each other from the beginning. He has been a police officer for years, who has transferred to Verily from the Bronx after an incident. Stone also has been cheated on and also caught his ex having sex with his old partner.

After an incident during his shift, Stone finds himself signed up for anger management class and Arilyn is the teacher. He has no intent in taking the class, especially since she is the teacher and he doesn’t like her. Stone fights everything Arilyn tries to teach him in the class to calm down when his anger flares up. He is told by his boss he has no choice but to take the class and complete it, so he decides to deal with it. Arilyn isn’t happy that he is in the class either, but there is also no denying there is a crackle of electricity between them and a fierce attraction.

Arilyn helps foster rescue dogs. There is a house which she thinks maybe abusing dogs. Expecting to find large dogs, she is surprised to find a tiny Chihuahua which she calls Pinky. Stone catches her trespassing on the property. She begs him not to arrest her and allow her to take the dog so she can save it by treating it’s wounds. Stone allows her to take the dog, but tells her that she owes him and brings it to her house. They share an explosive kiss, which proves the pull they have with each other. Stone tells her there is a price for saving her and the dog. He says when she is ready to take the leap with him and see how their relationship goes, she has to ask him.

Arilyn tells Kate and Kennedy about Stone. They encourage her to ask him to Kate’s wedding. At the bachelorette party they have for Kate, Stone is there with his partner to stop a fight. He hears all the noise in the room where they are for the party. Genevieve tells him that Arilyn wants to talk to him. Stone goes in the room, the other women think he is the cop stripper they hired and want him to start the show. Since Kate is nervous, she has Arilyn sit in her chair. When Stone sees Arilyn, he asks her what’s going on. She tells him he should give the women the show they want. He starts to strip but only focuses on Arilyn and the show is for her.

The scene at Kate’s wedding was awesome. It was great to have Stone hang out with Slade, Nate and Wolfe. Even better was having Carina, Max, Nick, Alexa, Michael and Maggie there since they were in the Marriage to a Billionaire series. Kate and Kennedy encourage Arilyn to see how things go with Stone. She is Searching for Always.  Forever. Stone is only interested in a physical relationship since he has been so hurt in his past.

Arilyn asks Stone to take Pinky the Chihuahua since she watches Robert for Kate. He doesn’t want to and tries to get someone else to watch the dog. Reluctantly he starts getting attached to Pinky after taking care of her. After Stone and Arilyn’s relationship progresses, she tells Stone she loves him. He isn’t ready for a relationship, he pushes her away, says that he isn’t good for her and gives her back Pinky. Arilyn’s grandfather tells Stone that some things are worth trying and fighting for. Stone realizes he has been wrong and goes to get back Pinky and Arilyn.

In the end Arilyn realizes the greatest relationship she has is the one with her friends. I loved this series and absolutely recommend it!
