“Got a name, my princess?”
When Joelle Fielding attends a function for Chicago’s society elites, she’s stunned to find herself swept off her feet by a man who believes that not only is she a princess, but that she’s HIS princess. Falling in love at first sight isn’t a part of her career-oriented life goals, but with the sexy Gus Bloch insisting she’s meant for him, those life goals might be changing.
By fourteen, Gus had been on his own on the Southside’s mean streets. When life had been at its bleakest, he’d dreamed of his future and the kind of woman he would someday share his life with. One look at Joelle, and he knows he’s finally found her. Nothing will stop him from convincing her that he’s the man for her—not even Joelle herself.
Joelle has never wanted anyone like she wants Gus, but all too soon insta-love and the demands of reality find themselves on a collision course. Is Gus really the man for her when he’s forced to see she’s no one’s princess?

A slow smile curled his mouth, and to Joelle’s surprise she found she couldn’t look away from the two perfect dimples that appeared in his lean, clean-shaven cheeks. Had there ever been a more perfectly symmetrical face, with sculpted cheekbones, squared-off jaw and, heaven above, dimples? The more she saw of him, the more she realized that perfection could exist. “The moment I saw you, everything about you became my business.”

“Oh, really?” Wildly her heart bounced around in her chest like one of those bouncy balls she’d loved as a child. “How do you figure that?”

“It’s pretty simple.” He shifted a shoulder, like freaking Atlas shrugging. “I saw you standing there, and something inside me clicked into place. I’m not fighting that, and neither should you. It won’t do you any good.”

“My goodness.” It took all her strength not to pearl-clutch, but damn, it was hard. This man came on like a freight train, and for a wayward moment she could only wonder what he was like in bed… “I think there’s a song like that.”

“I guess this could be called an enchanted evening, now that I think about it. It’s not every day you meet the one that stops you in your tracks and makes you think of things like forever.”

Okay, pearl-clutching was a necessity when a man said things like that. “Anyone ever tell you that you have a tendency to overwhelm?”

“Not my fault. I’ve lost one helluva lot of time with you, so I need to catch up.”

“Catch up? We just met.”

“Yeah, but I’ve been looking for you my whole damn life. Got a shit-ton of catching up to do.”
A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance author, or a romance author who was also a figure skating pro. Now, with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.

#NewRelease ~ “A Date to Play Fore” Series: The Dating Series, by Authors: Heidi McLaughlin & LP Dover, Genre: Contemporary Romance, Release Date: August 11, 2020, is Available Now! ~ @HeidiJoVT and @LPDover @EJBookPromos

Title: A Date to Play Fore

Series: The Dating Series
Authors: Heidi McLaughlin & LP Dover 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 11, 2020


New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Heidi McLaughlin and L.P. Dover come together for a sexy new series that delivers romance for every season!


Tee up for the long drive, it’s golf season!
After winning the U.S. Open, Greyson Jennings couldn’t help but take playful jabs at the expense of his prime competition, Bryan Nelson. His snarky claims during the press junction may have burned off like fog on the green, if a week later they hadn’t found themselves at the same golf resort.
Hungry for a little payback, Bryan challenges Greyson to a grudge match: Grey and his best friend versus Bryan and his sister, Leah. Turns out, Leah is a ringer with a swing—and curves—that turn Grey’s thoughts to a hole in one of another kind.
Unfortunately, Leah’s opinion of him has been formed by the many stories Bryan has shared. That may hurt this golfer’s handicap, but he’s nowhere near ready to give up. It’s game on as Leah agrees to meet Grey on the green and go head to head with the hole as the goal.
Can Greyson prove there’s more to him than an impressive club and a carefully crafted bad boy persona? Or will the sting of Leah’s rejection leave him in need of some alone time and a good ball washer?



“You have got to be kidding me,” Bryan growls.

Heart racing, my eyes snap open. “What?” I gasp.

He points toward the fairway. “Look who it is.”

There’s only one person it could be to earn such a hated look from my brother. And of course, when I focus on the guy about to hit his ball, I recognize his stance. Greyson Jennings has his own style when it comes to golf. I hate the guy, but he’s one of the best. You can’t help but admire how talented he is.

Bryan fumes and clenches the steering wheel. “Of all places he could be, why in the hell is he here?” I’ve been wondering the same thing. Greyson never answered when I asked him. It wouldn’t surprise me if he did it on purpose. The only way he could’ve found out would be through my social media.

Bryan hops out of the cart and reaches for his driver. Eyes wide, I can feel my heart pounding harder. “Bryan, what are you doing?”

He tees up his ball and smiles. “Just having a little fun, sis. If I knock him out, he deserves it.”

This is going to be a disaster. I just know it. The sound of his driver connecting with the ball is so loud it echoes in my ears. I watch it sail through the air, right in the direction toward Greyson. He doesn’t even yell fore, and I’m too shocked to even speak. The ball starts to drop from the sky and when it lands, it’s only about three feet away from Greyson and his best friend, Eli. He jerks around and throws his arms up in the air. Bryan bursts out laughing and flips them both off.

Greyson and Eli jump in their cart and head toward us. This is not what I want. “Just great,” I grumble. “Now look what you did.”

Bryan comes over to me and leans against the cart. “The fucker deserved it. It’s time he knows I’m back in the game.”

The last thing I want is to get in the middle of a testosterone match. I don’t care about seeing who has the bigger balls. When Greyson gets closer, his snarl turns into a smile when he notices me. Definitely not what I want. Bryan steps forward, driver in hand.

“Sorry about that,” my brother taunts, “I didn’t exactly hit what I was aiming for.”

Greyson bursts out laughing and steps out of the cart. “You never do. You obviously don’t know how to handle your shaft.”

Here we go. Groaning, I smack a hand to my forehead. “Really? This is what I’m going to have to put up with today?”

Greyson smirks at me, his gaze roaming over my bare legs before settling back on my eyes. “It’s good to see you again, Leah. I didn’t know you played golf.”

Busted. Bryan’s going to be pissed I didn’t tell him. His shoulders tense but he doesn’t look at me. Instead, he moves to the front of the cart to block Greyson from looking at me. “How about we play teams? My sister and I against you and your caddy.”

The day just got worse. I’m going to kill my brother. Then again, maybe we can teach Greyson a lesson. 

“Bryan, no,” I snap. “I suck at golf. We’ll lose.”

His eyes meet mine for the briefest of moments. Even though he can’t read my mind, we have a connection. Bryan stands up straighter and turns back to Greyson. “No worries, sis. I’ll play good enough for us both.”

“What are we playing for?” Greyson asks, moving to the side so he can see me. “Money? A date?”

I roll my eyes. “You can forget that.” I hop out of the cart and join my brother. “How about a thousand dollars?”

Greyson and Eli look at each other and I can see the outright arrogance on their faces. That’s their downfall. Greyson holds out a hand to my brother. “Deal. A thousand dollars.”

Bryan shakes his hand, the muscles in both of their forearms clenching. “Deal,” Bryan agrees.”

Greyson tips his hat at me and smiles. “I’m happy you’ll be playing with me.”

I grab my driver out of my bag. “I’d rather play with myself.” He finds it hilarious, but I see it as a jab. The guy is an insufferable tool.

Since Bryan already drove his ball to hit Greyson, it ends up being my turn. I tee up my ball and swing. It slices to the right, completely out of the fairway and into the rough. Greyson and Eli chuckle under their breath as they drive away while Bryan glares at me.

“Please tell me you did that on purpose?”

My lips pull up into a smile. “Of course, I did. Think about how much fun it’s going to be when we kick his ass.”

Bryan grins wide. “Let’s show him what we can do.”

Hole after hole, we’re neck and neck with only one stroke between us. It’s a close match, but I’m holding my own, especially for a female in a mostly male dominated sport. It all comes down to the eighteenth hole. It’s a par three with water all around the green. We all managed to get across the water, and now, it’s time to putt. It’s all down to me. If I can birdie my putt, my brother and I will win. If I don’t, we’re screwed. I can’t let Bryan down. He needs this win, and Greyson needs to be taken down a notch.

Taking a deep breath, I look over at the hole and then down at my ball. It’s about an eight-foot-long putt. I breathe in and out and close my eyes. Come on, Leah, you can do this. I open my eyes and tap the ball. It rolls across the green … and right into the hole.

Bryan yells and scoops me up into his arms. “Hell fucking yeah. You did it!”

He swings me around and I laugh. Greyson and Eli both seem impressed. Greyson walks over and pulls out a wad of cash from his wallet. Bryan sets me down and Greyson hands him the money. “Good job. It’s about time you won at something. I hate it had to be because of your sister.”

Bryan narrows his gaze. “But at least she kicked your ass cocksucker. You got beat out by a girl. Wait till everyone finds out about this.”

Greyson shrugs and Bryan walks over to the cart. Before I can turn, he lightly grabs my arm. “I’m impressed. Guess it’s not a surprise since your father’s a legend. He taught you well.”

“Yes, he did.”

His eyes search mine. “Go out with me tomorrow. I think we could have some fun.”

I snort. “I can do that without you.” My smile grows wider. “Besides, I’ll be busy spending that thousand dollars.”

Greyson chuckles. “You do that. Maybe next time.”

I walk backwards toward the cart. “Not gonna happen.”

Welcome to McCall Farm, where two hearts harvested love and then life made its fruits bitter.
High school sweethearts Matt and Katy McCall fell in love behind the bleachers with a kiss. Life is easy and happy until Katy is offered a job across the country and Matt refuses to give up his family’s generational farm. They painfully part—one due to stubbornness and the other ambition. Years go by and the rift widens until tragedy brings Katy back home to the farm—and the man who still held her heart.
But home is not the same and neither is the man she left behind. Matt is on the brink of losing the precious farm. He’s angry at life, and the tragedy has left him feeling like half a man. The last person Matt wants to see is the woman who left him for a career he believed mattered to her more than he did—and gutted his heart on the way out.

Love's Bitter HarvestLove’s Bitter Harvest by Jas T. Ward

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, what an incredible story. Love’s Bitter Harvest brought forth so many feels. Anger and sadness being at the front. I want to be very careful with this review not to say too much. If you’ve read the blurb, then you already have a good idea of the premise. While, in my own heart, I believe all the circumstances of what happen stem from Katy leaving. As the story goes on, I see that there were also other elements to blame such as miscommunication, lack of respect and a huge amount of stubbornness. You will hear a lot of, “You left me!” & “You didn’t ask me to stay!” At the beginning, I completely blamed Katy. She was so wrong, and it did appear to me that she didn’t love Matt enough to stay. As I read on, I understood that pride took a huge role in the halt to their seemingly perfect marriage. By the end, I liked Katy but still couldn’t forgive her for leaving the way she did. Don’t get me wrong because Matt could have stopped her, could have gone after her or answer her first phone calls at any time. He didn’t. So, while Katy was the initial break in their marriage, I feel that because of stubbornness and pride (on both parts) things could have been settled a lot sooner and Matt would not have been where he was on the night of his accident. Again, this is only my opinion. I can’t help the way I feel.

This is the first book I’ve read by Jas T. Ward. As a blogger, many releases pass my desk and I try to read the blurbs on all of them before I post the release to my followers. I do this because I don’t want to miss out on a great story. After reading the blurb for Loves’s Bitter Harvest, I purchased it immediately. Even before I hit publish on my blog.

This is one of the best written books I read this year. I won’t soon be forgetting these characters or the obstacles they faced getting back together. This author has a way of tugging at your heart, giving you the experience of being there rather than just reading about it. I want to warn you that there are many heartbreaking moments; I constantly prayed for a miracle. Matt had so much more to deal with than the aftermath of his accident. He also needed healing in his heart. He needed someone to help him see his flaws. By the end of the book, Matt’s growth as a character made me so proud. He also made me sad for the things he felt he needed to give up. Katy and Matt’s journey has quite a few obstacles in the way. There are misunderstandings and pride that seem to always be a factor. I am not going to give away the end of the book. The last chapters were so satisfying and despite me wishing more for Matt and Katy, I was happy for them. They were truly happy and, in the end, that is all that matters.

I can’t wait to read another book by this author. Her writing talent truly appealed to me as a reader and I’m looking forward to more.

This is my honest and unbiased review and I that you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
