The Restless Cowboy (Granite Juntion, #2) by Megan Ryder

Title: The Restless Cowboy (Granite Junction Book 2)

Author: Megan Ryder

Genre: Small Town Western Romance

Cover Designer: Bookin’ it Designs

Release Date: April 27, 2021

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Book Description:

Free—from family, duty, and responsibility.

Cam Miller has spent most of his life bound by choices others made for him. He did what had to be done to provide for his little sister, and he doesn’t regret that. But now, with her off to college, he can finally put ranching behind him and pursue the life he’s always dreamed of… far from Granite Junction. But after one night of passion comes back to haunt him, he fears his hard-won freedom is only temporary . . .

Independent—from family, relationships, and matters of the heart.

Molly Brennan was living her best life as a rodeo trick rider until a failed marriage forced her from the arena. Now she’s perfectly fine running her own hair salon and raising her daughter solo. She doesn’t need a man, but what could it hurt to indulge in a little no-strings fun with a sexy cowboy?

When Molly realizes she’s pregnant, she pulls herself up by her bootstraps. She’s handled things this far on her own and she can do it again, although she’s finding it isn’t so easy to let Cam go. But Cam’s not the kind of man who shirks responsibility. Finding himself torn between a woman who feels like home and his need to break free, where will Cam’s heart lead him?

The Restless Cowboy by Megan Ryder

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


“4- It’s never easy doing the right thing – Stars!”


Publication Date: April 27, 2021

The Restless Cowboy is the first book that I’ve read by this author and the second book in the Granite Junction series.

I was quite surprised by this book.
Even though it started out slow, when it did pick up (and it did pick up) it turned out to be a good story.

The two main characters (Cam and Molly) are involved in a short-term, casual fling.
There is definitely chemistry and a strong attraction to one another, but both know that Cam is eventually leaving town to start a new life eight hours away.
His ranch is sold, and he’s bought a new business.
He’s finally FREE to do what he wants to do with his life.

But, when the last time Cam and Molly are intimate and a surprise pregnancy is a result, the characters both have to decide how to proceed and do what’s best for themselves and the arrival of a baby.

I liked the conflict the male protagonist was facing between duty and responsibility, and I liked the strength and confidence of the female protagonist.

Both were likable characters and the story was well written.

If you’re looking for a small-town, cozy western romance, then this book might be something you might like.

THE EVOLUTION OF FAE AND GODS (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #3) by Sawyer Bennett is NOW AVAILABLE!

A love story so epic you’ll be begging for more.

Synopsis

Evil is coming.

A dark malevolence the likes of which this world has never seen, and it comes straight from the depths of Hell. Darkness meant to destroy. A prophecy I am fated to fulfill but will most likely not survive.

Through it all, Carrick Byrne has stood strong by my side. Something has deeply changed between me and the man I once despised, and all it took was a kiss of provocation for both of us to feel it. I know deep in my soul we’re being guided by destiny, but I don’t know if I can trust it. Carrick is holding something back, and I fear the consequences could be deadly once his truth is revealed.

We’re not ready, but calamity waits for no woman. I have discovered a power within myself I must learn to master. A new connection in the Underworld has been revealed to me, one that I hope is friend but is just as likely foe. We are in a race against time as we try to figure out how to stop the end of the world from occurring. The battle is coming, and I can only hope we’re prepared for what happens next.



The Evolution of Fae and Gods is book three of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

The Dating Plan by Sara Desai

“You won’t want to put [it] down until you’re done!”

—USA Today

The Dating Plan, the all new smart and sexy romantic comedy from Sara Desai is available now!

Synopsis

Even with a step-by-step plan, these fake fiances might accidentally fall for each other in this hilarious, heartfelt romantic comedy from the author of The Marriage Game.

Daisy Patel is a software engineer who understands lists and logic better than bosses and boyfriends. With her life all planned out, and no interest in love, the one thing she can’t give her family is the marriage they expect. Left with few options, she asks her childhood crush to be her decoy fiance.

Liam Murphy is a venture capitalist with something to prove. When he learns that his inheritance is contingent on being married, he realizes his best friend’s little sister has the perfect solution to his problem. A marriage of convenience will get Daisy’s matchmaking relatives off her back and fulfill the terms of his late grandfather’s will. If only he hadn’t broken her tender teenage heart nine years ago…

Sparks fly when Daisy and Liam go on a series of dates to legitimize their fake relationship. Too late, they realize that very little is convenient about their arrangement. History and chemistry aren’t about to follow the rules of this engagement.

Excerpt

“Fine.” She sighed. “I’ll marry you.”

It wasn’t the acceptance a man dreamed about, but it was a “yes” just the same. He pulled out his phone.

“I’ll tell my assistant to get us on the first flight to Vegas tonight.”

“Vegas?” Daisy’s brow furrowed in confusion.

“They do quickie weddings,” Liam said. “I know a good chapel. Some of them are tacky, but this one has class. We can fly out tonight. The Elvis wears a three-piece suit and a tie . . .”

His spider senses tingled, warning him that something was wrong. Or maybe it was the scowl on his fake fiancée’s face. “If you don’t like Elvis . . .”

“Are you kidding?” Daisy walked over to the whiteboard and picked up a marker. “We’re not going to Vegas. We need a plan for this whole thing.”

“I don’t do plans.”

“Well you’re going to do one now because otherwise you won’t have your marriage of convenience.” She turned to the board, giving him perfect view of her lush behind. His thoughts immediately went somewhere the thoughts of a fake fiancé shouldn’t go, a small indication that this was going to be harder than it looked—in more ways than one.

“We can’t just jump into a marriage,” she said as she wrote on the board. “It won’t be believable. We’ll have to plan out some dates to legitimize our relationship before the wedding. We’ll need to be seen together by friends and family, and we’ll need photographic evidence we’ve been together.” She turned around and pointed to the board. “This is what we need.”

Liam read the heading and laughed. “A dating plan? I don’t plan dates, sweetheart. I go where the wind takes me.”

“When Orson and I used to go out with friends, we’d talk about restaurants we’d been to, or an interesting documentary we’d watched on Netflix, or an art exhibition we’d seen, maybe an energetic walk along the coast. Those are the stories that make a relationship sound real.”

Liam faked a yawn. “Orson sounds like a boring guy.”

“He was easy to be with. We didn’t have to talk much.”

“My kind of relationship.” He gave a sly smile.

Daisy raised an eyebrow. “If you are suggesting that all we did was have sex, you would be very wrong. We had an intellectual relationship. We saw thought-provoking films, and we discussed philosophy, religion, politics, programming issues . . .”

Liam dropped his head and then jerked it up again. “Sorry. I fell asleep after you said you and Orson never had sex.”

“I didn’t say . . .” She trailed off, her eyes narrowing. “It’s none of your business.”

“I’m your fiancé. I think your sex life is very much my business. I need to know what kind of woman I’m marrying.”

“The kind that doesn’t kiss and tell,” she snapped.

Thoroughly enjoying her discomfort, he leaned back in his chair, hands crossed behind his head. “Who is a better kisser? Me or Orson?”

Daisy’s eyes widened and she froze, her hand hovering in midair. Liam remembered that look from the afternoons he’s spent at her house, when she’d been caught doing something wrong. Daisy couldn’t lie.

“I have my answer.” He puffed out his chest. “The old Murphy charm wins again.”

“That was the only kiss you’ll ever get from me,” she said firmly. “My feelings for you haven’t changed. This is a marriage in name only. That means no physical contact except for holding hands or a peck on the cheek for appearances.” She turned back to the whiteboard. “I’ll write that down so you don’t forget.”

“I’m liking this plan less already,” Liam grumbled. “Write that down, too.”

MAD ABOUT EWE by Susannah Nix and Smartypants Romance is Now Available!

Mad About Ewe, an all-new heartwarming second-chance romance from Susannah Nix, is LIVE EARLY on AppleBooks, Nook, Kobo, and GooglePlay!

Synopsis

Dawn Botstein is doing just fine after her divorce, thank you very much.

She’s got her yarn store to run, her house to herself for the first time in her life, and no use for men anymore. That is until the hottie silver fox who walks into her store turns out to be her old high school crush—the guy who rejected her 30 years ago.

No way is she going to lose her head over him this time, no matter how well he wears that salt-and-pepper lumberjack beard. Okay, so he’s the opposite of her ex in every way, and his attention gives her a thrill she thought she’d never feel again. She’s not risking her heart again.

Mike Pilota is having a mid-life crisis.

Only instead of buying a red sports car he can’t afford and dressing like a 25-year-old who’s time-traveled from the 1990s, he quit his job after his second divorce to move closer to his recently widowed mother.

He didn’t expect to run into Dawn again, but as soon as he lays eyes on her he’s utterly smitten. So he sets out to make up for past mistakes and prove he can be the kind of man she deserves.

But is it too late for second chances? Or will these two lonely hearts find a way back to each other?

‘Mad About Ewe’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #1 in the Common Threads series, Seduction in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe. 

Mad About Ewe by Susannah Nix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Mad About Ewe, an all-new heartwarming second-chance romance from Susannah Nix, is coming on March 18th!


“4- It takes great courage to shoot for the stars!”

There were so many things I really enjoyed about this book.
1) It was a second-chance romance. Not only did the protagonists know one another from high school, but they were both basically starting their lives fresh after being divorced.

2) I LOVED that the protagonists were in their late 40’s.
They’ve lived some life.
There was the fact that there were grown kids involved. An aging parent. The recent death of a parent, and illness.
Real Life.

3) They also had insecurities about getting into the dating scene and/or possibly getting naked after being with the same person for so many years.

This was a wonderfully written and well-paced story.
I really enjoyed meeting Dawn and Mike.
Their story was great!

It was also lovely seeing some of my favorite characters from the “Knitting in the City” series.

A great start to a new series in the Penny Reid Universe.

A DISCOVERY OF SECRETS AND FATE (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, book 2) by Sawyer Bennett

This epic journey continues as the dangers grow, the questions mount, and the attraction builds.

About A Discovery of Secrets and Fate: 

Life as I knew it ended the day I accepted my fate.

In its place is an existence even the wildest imagination could never fathom. Strange creatures walk among us, plotting our demise, and I’ve come to find that the fate of our world rests squarely on my shoulders. We’re all in danger and I’m trying to figure out how to make it through each day.

The key to my survival is a man I can’t figure out. As dangerous as the darkest fae, I have no choice but to work with him to stop the prophecy that’s foretold to be the ruination of mankind.

Carrick Byrne continues to be my only source of information, but he doles it out as he sees fit. He intrigues and scares me in equal measure, yet I can’t help but be attracted to him. And the more I discover about him, the more it becomes clear he feels the same.

As we travel to Faere in search of answers, we find that every piece of information leads to more questions, that every question leads to a new piece of the puzzle, and that, most importantly, no one can be trusted.

The more secrets we uncover, one thing is certain— if we have any chance of saving the world, we have to do it together.

A Discovery of Secrets and Fate is book two of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

A Discovery of Secrets and Fate by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars




“5- All is not as it seems, stars!”



This is the second book in the “Chronicles of the Stone Veil” pentalogy, and I have to say that I’m really enjoying this series.

In A Discovery of Secrets and Fate there is more emphasis on character development and world-building.
Carrick and Finley are set to travel to Faere, and the author did a wonderful job of describing the land the Queen of the Light Fae has created, and the dynamics of their society.

The story’s writing was well-paced and we soon discover what Carrick is, and his true reason for helping Finley. We also learn the reason why Finley is so special.


The author is giving the reader the right amount of information to keep them engaged, but also not enough to have them surmise what will happen next.

I like where the author is going with Carrick and Finley’s characters.


I’m intrigued to find out what happens next because this book too, ended with a cliff-hanger.

This was a wonderful read and I’m anxious to read the next book in the series!

He’s spent the last year wanting nothing more than for the celebrations to be brief, libations flowing, and BYOB (bring your own blueberries). His future mother-in-law has other plans, plans his intended has been willing to indulge, much to Cletus’s chagrin. Therefore, so must he. To a point. But truth be told, he wouldn’t mind if the meddlesome matriarch disappeared, at least until the nuptials are over.

On the night of Cletus and Jenn’s long-awaited engagement party, just when the surly schemer is of a mind to take matters into his own hands, a shocking event upends everyone’s best laid plans and sends the small hamlet of Green Valley into complete disarray. The final months leading up to Cletus and Jenn’s matrimonial bliss are plagued with chaos and uncertainty. Will Cletus and Jenn finally make it to the altar? Or will murder and mayhem derail their happily-ever-after?

And most importantly, who done it?

‘Marriage and Murder’ is the second book in the cozy mystery series Solving for Pie: Cletus and Jenn Mysteries. It is best read after Winston Brothers #3, ‘Beard Science’ (which can be read as a standalone) and Solving for Pie: Cletus and Jenn Mysteries #1, ‘Engagement and Espionage.’

Happy Book Birthday!

Eye Candy (Fighting for Love Book 3) by Jiffy Kate is now available!

Eye Candy, an all-new opposites attract small-town romance from Jiffy Kate, is LIVE EARLY on AppleBooks, Nook, Kobo, and GooglePlay!

Synopsis

Vali Erickson is the classic middle child—misunderstood, underestimated, and overlooked. He’s fine with it. Really. The overlooked part is actually serving him well during this phase of life.

He’s in Green Valley in an effort to fly under the radar and regroup after a life-altering blow to his heart and ego. The last thing he’s looking for is a woman to warm his bed until one throws him to the mat and rocks his world.

Margaret O’Neal is an only child who has led a sheltered life. She’s used to being a wallflower. Her ability to blend into the background is what allows her to maintain her anonymity as a gossip columnist for the Green Valley Ledger.

Since the Ericksons moved to town, she’s never felt more inspired, especially with the newest addition. Vali Erickson is the definition of eye candy—devastatingly handsome with muscles for days—giving her plenty to report about.

The more Maggie observes, the more she finds herself wanting things she’s only read about in romance novels.

Admiring Vali from afar is good enough for her until their paths cross and she finds herself trying to stay afloat in uncharted territory—no labels, no promises, and WAY out of her comfort zone.

Will this arrangement be what finally breaks her out of her shell, or will her heart be a casualty of the Viking Invasion?

‘Eye Candy’ is a full-length contemporary romance, and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Fighting For Love series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

5- I didn’t see her coming, I wasn’t expecting to find her.
But, Dear God, I’m glad I did – Stars!” – Vali Erickson

“Greeting, Good People of Green Valley.” – Trixie and Tess, Green Valley Ledger

Margaret O’Neal has a secret.  She’s the voice behind “The Green Valley Ledgers” gossip and advice column.  Nobody knows her secret but two people.  Her editor, Sarah, and her pen pal and confidant, Everly.
Margaret would also say that she suffers from a “lack of social interaction” because her parents were older when they had her.
She was homeschooled. 
She went to college through online courses. 
She works and has always worked for her parents – O’Neil Feed and Fodder Store, and she still lives at home with her parents.
Writing her weekly column for the “Green Valley Ledger” allows her to transform from Maggie O’Neal, feed store employee, to Maggie O’Neal, a writer, and columnist.
It’s through Maggie’s column that she’s able to tell the good people of Green Valley about the <i>”Viking Invasion”</i>, and that there’s a new addition to Viking MMA -Vali Erickson.

Vali Erickson’s reason for coming to Green Valley is to get away.
He was betrayed in the most brutal of ways.
He’s hurt, heartbroken, and has come to his brother’s MMA gym to get away, lick his wounds, ground himself, and learn to move on.

As fate would have it, Maggie and Vali end up getting to know one another. 
They agree to have a relationship “with no labels” because Vali doesn’t know how long he’ll be staying in Green Valley, and he wants to be upfront with Maggie that his move there was never meant to be permanent.
Their chemistry is off the charts.
Vali is Maggie’s everything firsts. 
First relationship.
First time travelling outside of Green Valley. 
First Love.

This is a wonderful story of Vali learning to trust and love, and Maggie learning to get off the sidelines of life and follow her dreams. 
When she does, she soars.


I just want to say that this is my MOST favourite story yet in the series!
I totally fell for Vali and Maggie.
Vali Erickson if f#@*ing Perfect, and I LOVED, LOVED Margaret (Maggie, Mags) O’Neil’s character!

Amazing read and a wonderful addition to the “Fighting for Love” series!
