The Art of Loving Lacy


NEW RELEASE…

Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole's rich and romantic storytelling. All Addison Cole novels are written to stand alone, or be read as the larger Sweet with Heat series. 

In The Art of Loving Lacy... 
Lacy Snow wasn’t looking for love when she met strikingly handsome and seductive Dane Braden. But how could she ignore the six-foot-three darkly handsome god who tagged and researched sharks for a living—and made every nerve in her body tangle into an overly sensitive knot? Even her fear of sharks could not suppress their intense attraction.

As founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden travels from port to port, educating and advocating on behalf of the mammals he adores—and spends his nights finding solace in the arms of strangers. The last thing Dane was looking for when he met Lacy Snow was a relationship, and the last thing he expected was to fall in love.

More than a year—and hundreds of flirty texts, steamy phone calls, and sensual video chats—later, they reunite and take passion to a whole new level. But as Lacy’s phobia meets Dane’s past love life, their steamy romance is upended, and when tragedy strikes, Dane and Lacy are forced to face their deepest fears head-on as they try to navigate their own sea of love.

The Art of Loving Lacy is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you'd expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you're looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy Love in Bloom edition, Sea of Love, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa's sweet-romance pen name.


Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies

Review: There's plenty of sparks flying between Lacy and Dane, even across the miles in the year since they met. What could be sexier than a Braden who follows his passion, in and out of the bedroom? No longer a playboy, Dane, and sweet Lacy give in to their passions before fate throws them a curveball. Their futures hang in the balance, but if they can find strength in each other, then love and life together awaits them. A romance for the ages that you won't want to miss.

She’s spent forever trying to deny her attraction to headstrong, too-handsome-for-his-own-good cowboy Rex Braden. The last thing she needs is that particular man complicating her life.

Fiercely loyal Rex Braden has never put anyone or anything before his family. Despite the irate family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, unleashing fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love—and causing the rebel in each of them to rear its powerful head.

Shades of Justice


NEW RELEASE….
The line between good and evil isn’t always clear…

Detective Madison Knight has risked her badge—and her life—in the pursuit of justice before, and she just might need to do so again. Two victims are found murdered and naked in the home of Steven Malone, who is the largest contributor to the Stiles PD. One victim is his wife. The other victim is a John Doe. This high-profile double homicide immediately pits Madison against her sergeant, who seems more intent on protecting the Malones’ reputation and retaining a benefactor than catching a killer.

Madison will need to pull on her tenacity and courage if she’s going to follow the evidence without prejudice. In the process, it becomes clear that finding justice isn’t always black and white, and often the shades in between tell the fullest story—and it’s not something she will forget anytime soon.

Shades of Justice is a murder mystery with twists and turns that will have readers flipping the pages until the wee hours of the morning. The ninth installment in an international bestselling series, it doesn’t matter if this is the first book you’re reading in the Detective Madison Knight series or not; all the books stand alone! 



Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies

Review: When a murdered wealthy family matriarch found with a dead John Doe, Madison finds herself knee deep in politics, lies, and elusive clues. As black and white as Madison often likes to think the world is, this case will force her to see the shades in between if she hopes to solve this homicide without stepping on too many influential toes. Fighting with her own personal experiences and prejudices to stay objective, Madison takes the reader on a twisted ride as she races to find the murderer.

Maiden's Peak





Maiden's Peak by Kristy E Carter 
Murder Mystery, Paranormal

Victor Shelton ran from his family's legacy of prophetic dreams at seventeen but finds at twenty-eight that he is unable to run from the nightmares that plague him. Haunted by images of his own death each night he follows the fleeting memory of the town limit's sign in his nightmare to a quaint Colorado town.

Beckoned to a forbidding mountain peak with a past riddled by ghost stories and legends, Victor must figure out who is friend or foe. Can he unravel the secrets of the enigmatic citizens of Carver's Corner and solve his own murder before it happens?

Perhaps the answers are in the siren song of whatever is calling him to the caves under Maiden's Peak. The song in the darkness urges him on, but whether it is to his death or to his salvation, Victor can't say. All he knows is that once before he had not heeded the call of his dreams and someone had died. He can't let that happen again.




5 out of 5 fairies

Maiden's Peak will keep you in its heart racing grasp. If you kept seeing your own death, night after night in your dreams, would you chase it down? Go to the location where you die in the hopes of finding answers? Or would you run the other way? Victor Shelton goes running towards it and stumbles into an old mystery. Determined to solve what was written off by most of the locals, Victor is forced to try and save his own life while looking for the answers he so desperately needs.

Excerpt:
A solitary scrap of paper was swept from the cold pavement by the updraft. The gust of wind lifted my hair and ghosted a frigid breath across my neck, causing the hairs there to stand on end. I’d come to this small town chasing a dream, but not the kind that beckons a person to great things. No, the dream that had brought me here is the kind that leaves you huddled in a corner, quietly sobbing. Two months had passed since the nightmares began, and I hadn’t had a decent night’s sleep since. Even as I thought about it, flashes of the nightmare came to the front of my mind, and I quickly veered my thoughts away to keep the images at bay. Somehow, I thought coming here to Carver’s Corner would make it better. This place was featured in the nightly horror show that my dreams had become. Being here didn’t make the dream come into clarity or logically fall into place. I had never been to this town and probably would not have missed its presence in my life if I hadn’t been beckoned here by the insistent dreams. My grandmother insisted that we had some cunning folk in our family tree. Cunning folk, in case you’ve been blessed with ignorance, is another name for wise men and women who heal and help others through both natural and magical means. That might not seem so bad, but at seventeen, I rebelled with every fiber of my being. I wanted so much to be like everyone else. I tried so hard to pretend that I wasn’t plagued most nights by dreams that were seemingly not my own. Sometimes the dreams came true; sometimes they merely taunted me. The embarrassment of misinterpreting a dream was something one truly had to experience before you could appreciate it. The looks on people's faces when they had deemed you unbalanced was something you never got used to. The straw that finally broke the proverbial camel's back came at a party in my junior year of high school. For weeks, I had dreamed of a fire at that party. It was the only reason—other than my then-crush, of course—that I had gone. As it turned out, I’d read the signs wrong, and the dream was more my anxiety than anything else. Needless to say, Betsy Stevens didn’t appreciate me ruining her party by screaming about a fire that never came to be. A couple weeks after the incident, I left and went to live with my dad, who was on the East Coast—far away from talks of cunning folk and prophetic dreams. The move had worked in many ways. My dreams even stopped for a time, but as with all good things, it did not last.
