A cop who’s been Framed, a klutzy school teacher. Will one of them end up in handcuffs?? Or will they accidentally fall in love?




So, you’d like to go viral on social media?


Fourth grade teacher, Ashley Swensen finds herself in a hashtag nightmare, when a picture of her crashing a bicycle at School Safety Day, goes viral, with the tag #AshleyAccidents.  And why is it that every time she screws up one hunky cop happens to be around? Before she knows it, she becomes an unwilling poster child for community safety. And even a St. Patrick’s Day birthday isn’t bringing her luck.


 Officer Benny (Benito) Lopez just wants to ask the cute teacher for a date, but she doesn’t want anything to do with him. And his friends keep making things worse. Then he remembers his grandmother’s advice, to make a grand gesture.


Will they accidentally fall in love? Or will social media keep them apart? Only her girlfriends and a little ‘luck o’ the Irish’ can help her now. And chocolate of course…


#AshleyAccidents #StPatricksDay #SilverBracelets #TrueLove





The Beach Break Coffee Bar was crowded and the girls squeezed through the throng of people to get to the table Evan was holding for them.


“It’s nice to be connected.” Ashley said as she slid into the seat next to Lucy.


Lucy smiled and started to respond just as Ashley smacked her on the arm. “Nooo,” she groaned. “That’s him over there.”


All three of her friends turned to look in the direction she’d pointed. Five good looking guys sat at a table laughing and drinking beer.


“Which one is he?” Mindi asked.


“He’s the jerky one.”


“You’ll have to be a little more descriptive.” Randi said. “I mean, they all look pretty friendly to me.”


“The one in the grey T-shirt. Don’t let that boyish smile fool you. He’s not nice.”


“I don’t know,” Mindi said. “I think he looks very nice. Look at the way that shirt hugs his biceps. Wish he’d turn this way so I could get a better look at his face.”


“What’s his name?” Randi had to raise her voice to be heard over the band who had moved back onto the stage and were warming up their instruments.


“Officer Lopez,” Ashley answered, trying to be heard over the music.


“What?” Randi raised her voice again.


“Officer Lopez!” Ashley said loudly just as the band stopped and the coffee bar buzz dropped to a din.


Officer Lopez and his buddies all turned to see who had shouted his name, and the lead singer of Reflective Lenses who was already standing in front of the mic picked it up.


“Officer Benny Lopez, you’re not even in the band, and cute girls are shouting your name. How’d you do that?”


Laughter rippled through the little coffee bar and Ashley considered crawling under the table.
“It’s okay Ashley,” Lucy said, “Evan just had a new refrigerator delivered. I’ll go get the box. We can smuggle you out of here without anyone seeing you!”
At least Randi tried to hide her smile, but Mindi made no effort to contain her amusement.



A sweet, funny, clean, light, too short romance, lol! A fast paced hilarious, never say never, or what could go wrong…” – Madm007


“Social media in courtship doesn’t always work out especially when your so called friend stuffs it up. Fastpace, lots of laughter, family values coming into play, good friends in most cases. Beware you may end up with sore cheeks and tummy from the laughter you experience in this journey. Loved it.” – Tracy


“Silver Bracelets was the follow up to the Please Say Yes. It was a fast-paced, delightful, romantic story. I love the characters. Tari Lynn Jewette wrote a fun novel with a happily ever after.”  – A.


“Very cute sweet short story. Loved the humor and interaction between the main characters and supporting characters. Small-town and great friends, humor and heart. Definitely looking forward to reading more.” – Ruiz Kim

Should he stay, or go…

Nurse Dee McNamara knew heartbreak and tragedy. She’s a survivor but has built high walls to protect her heart. She takes care of everyone but herself, yet never imagined finding another man she’d be able to trust until one day she offered a ride to a tall, darkly handsome cowboy whose eyes hold the same pain and mistrust.

Rio Montez is a man with secrets, and he arrives at Braxton Ranch on a mission to find answers about his father. He thinks the truth will finally give him the peace to finally move on. He never counted on finding the woman who offered answers to his questions.

Rio’s always had a plan until now. Does he leave Braxton Ranch or stay and build a life he never dreamed possible with a woman he’s afraid he’s falling hard for.

Homeward Bound, Cowboy (Blood Brothers, #2)Homeward Bound, Cowboy by Debra Holt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I haven’t read the first book in this series but after reading, “Homeward Bound, Cowboy” I am compelled to because I loved the characters from the previous book. This book features Rio and Dee. I’m going to be careful with this review as there is a bit of a twist and some personal secrets that will be revealed by both hero and heroine as you read along. This book has a steady pace with a good flow, so you won’t wait long as things come to light. However, you might wonder how a happily-ever-after will fit in. At least I wondered.

The premise of this book was one I enjoyed and hate at the same time. I could never understand how family could treat family so poorly. But on the other hand, when the story is of this type of emotional nature, the happy ending is so much more appreciated.

Rio has come to Braxton with an agenda. Get closure and move on. He prefers to wander rather than settle down anywhere. Rio is searching for more than information; he just doesn’t know it yet. I really liked Rio’s character. While he was a bit aloof at times, it was easy to see he was a good person despite the hard times of his youth. Determined to keep his distance from the people he finds himself around, and caring for their wellbeing is not what Rio expects when he takes a job with the Braxton family. Soon enough, Rio’s icy heart begins to melt and he will find himself with decisions to make regarding a future he never expected and is not sure he wants. But there is one thing he wants; one person specifically.

Dee is a nurse and very close friends with the Braxton family. So, visiting the Braxton ranch is a part of her life. This sweet, caring woman has a tragic past. Because of that, Dee is afraid to get too close to any man, and it is very difficult for her to trust. But after she meets Rio, Dee can’t stop the feelings she has regarding this tough, aloof and sometimes rude, cowboy. There is just something about his character that draws her closer, despite her hesitancy.

The chemistry and attraction are present between Dee and Rio from the first moments they meet. That attraction only grows more each time they find themselves in the same room together. As they become closer, the story’s angst builds. By this time in the book, we are aware of Rio’s secret. Dee is not. I won’t tell you the specifics of her reaction when she learns the truth. But from that moment, the book takes a turn and you will be on the end of your seat praying for a happy ending. You will, because these two wonderful characters deserve that. With each other!

This was the first book in the Blood Brothers Series. As I said earlier in my review, I definitely want to read book one. Book three will be coming soon, I hope, and I am looking forward to that. “Homeward Bound, Cowboy” is another enjoyable book from author Debra Holt and I recommend it.

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

Release Day! “The White House Wedding” from author Seelie Kay is Available Now!

The White House Wedding 
By Seelie Kay

About The White House Wedding: 

When politics interferes with love, can love survive?

Getting married isn’t easy when your father’s the President of the United States! After reluctantly agreeing to a White House wedding, Sarah Lee Pearson, the president’s daughter, finds herself swept into a political maelstrom of unimagined proportions.

The White House staff and the first lady see the wedding as a political event, a way to sweep the president into his next term. Congress is complaining about the collateral costs. The media is delightfully rehashing every aspect of Sarah’s life, even those events that have nothing to do with the impending marriage. And the American public? Visions of an American royal wedding have swept them into a frenzy and vendors take advantage, making a quick buck off of everything from limited edition t-shirts to commemorative teacups.

Sarah and her fiancé, Sam, fight hard to ignore the craziness, but after learning a bounty has been put on their heads by an anti-government militia group, they have to decide whether a White House wedding is indeed worth it. And given all the hurtful controversy, perhaps a better solution is to not get married at all.

The White House Wedding Excerpt: 

“How does my father feel about this?” Sarah asked.

“Your father wants you to do what makes you happy.”

Jamisen Powell entered his Chief of Staff’s office and nodded coldly at Jeremiah. He added, “He would never ask you to do otherwise.”

Sarah smiled and rose to kiss her father on the cheek. “Thanks, Dad. I knew you wouldn’t ask me to be a political stool pigeon.”

Jamie Powell chuckled. “No. That job apparently falls to staff.” He smiled at Sarah. “Look, hopefully, you only get married once. Make a memory that will mean the most to you and Sam. Nothing else matters.” He shook his head, “Maybe Jeremiah will get lucky and your sister, Melissa, will hook some poor sucker before the next election. She and her mother would be overjoyed planning a White House wedding.”

Jeremiah scowled. “I am only thinking about your re-election, Mr. President. Your first term has been a bit rocky. You need a solidifying factor, something that will grab the hearts and minds of the American public and provide a clear path into the next term. Your story, a daughter lost and found after twenty-five years, especially a daughter who just happens to be a stellar human being and a successful international law attorney, won their hearts in the first election.

“Walking that same daughter down the aisle, something you had never dreamed was possible? The ratings alone will rival a royal wedding. No offense, but Melissa’s marriage—if it ever happens—could never have the same impact. People don’t view her in the same light as Sarah. Melissa is a flighty socialite. Her deep-seated sense of entitlement offends. The ratings for her wedding would be nonexistent. But Sarah? She’s the golden child. The American public loves her.”

The president’s sapphire blue eyes, which mirrored Sarah’s, flashed with annoyance. “Be that as it may, I am not about to force either of my daughters into something they don’t want. Sarah has declined your request, and as far as I am concerned, that’s the end of it. You will have to find another solidifying factor, Jer. Surely I have done something that’s re-election worthy!”

Neither one of them had any intention of settling down…

Tinsley Underhill left everything behind five years ago and hasn’t looked back. She loves life on the road following the American Extreme Bull Rider’s tour representing sponsor Four Wolves Whiskey. She rocks sales and pouring shots, and the bull riders are a sexy perk. She exults in the flirting and the chase, but when she lets her favorite champion catch her for a steamy fling, she knows they both have one foot out the door.

Bull rider Anders Wolf is on top of more than just the leaderboard. Life is good. Women are better, especially the intriguing and gorgeous Tinsley. The fireworks are more explosive than he imagined, but even the best mind- and body-blowing pleasure must end. No way he’ll be roped early…then Tinsley’s casually announces she’s pregnant. Anders intends to do the right thing, but Tinsley’s plans don’t include him, marriage or happy ever after on his Texas ranch.

Anders has never backed down from a challenge, and he’s not about to start now.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

A Baby for the Texas Cowboy (The Texas Wolf Brothers Book 3)A Baby for the Texas Cowboy by Sinclair Jayne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is one of those books you can’t help swooning over the hero. Anders was amazing and the reason I enjoyed this book. A bull rider at the top of his game, Anders is not ready for settling down; not for at least another five years. He loves his life on the AEBR tour and the success he is having. Was Anders a ladies’ man? Yes, he was. But I wouldn’t call him a womanizer at all. Anders had manners and consideration for others. He was an all-around good guy, loyal friend and a loving brother. Any success he received, he earned. And he couldn’t wait to continue the ride he was experiencing. As you know, life isn’t always what we expect or even want. When life throws a curve at Anders, without hesitation, he knows he is going to do the right thing. Anders is going to be a father and without a doubt, he will take care of his child. Anders wants to take care of his child’s mother too. Tinsley isn’t having any of that. For reasons that will reveal themselves to you as you read the book, Tinsley is not one to trust easily. She is independent and refuses to allow anyone to do anything for her. She doesn’t want or need Ander’s help and she tries very hard to push him away. And this is where I tell you that for me, Tinsley was not easy to like, even though I knew her reasons for wanting nothing from Anders.

I won’t get into the details of the book because that’s a literary ride you’ll want to experience for yourself, and make your own opinions.

This author is one I have read a few times before. The pace of this book is steady and the writing style is one that I relate to. I should also say I love the way this author sets her scenes and gives us plenty of information regarding characters’ occupations so we can continue reading with a steady flow and not have to stop and look things up. I was not only entertained with A Baby for the Texas Cowboy, I felt like I received a lesson in some aspects of the wine industry as well.

All in all, a very enjoyable read. This book is part of a series giving us the stories of the Wolf brothers of Last Stand, Texas. I think the author gave a hint to what could be the next book, starring an ex-military hero. That is just a guess on my part but I hope it will be true.

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

grit out between clenched teeth, dropping the plate of mac ‘n cheese onto the

Damn him. Where does he get off?
“Does Tyler know about this?” He keeps waving it.
I stalk over and try to grab it, but he’s too quick, moving it to the

“Does he use it on you, Legs?”
My pussy clenches, even as flames fly out of my ears. I lunge for the

grab it.
The perv clamps an arm around the backs of my thighs, his forearm lifting

We both stare at each other in shock. I’m slightly horrified at my own

“No you shouldn’t have.” In a flash, he’s up off the chair, divesting me
of the vibrator. He tackles me to the bed. “You’re in big trouble now, Legs.”
Somehow, that sounds more sexy than threatening.
And my body responds with a full on pleasure rush. Heat floods my lady
parts. Peaks my nipples.
Somewhere near my right ear, my vibrator roars to life.

Title: The IT Guy

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 7, 2020
I love my job, I love my house, and I love my cat. What else
do I need out of life? Hmmm…maybe the hot new IT guy from work. Those
dimples…And don’t get me started on his forearms.
But he’s way too young. Plus, office romance is never a good
idea. Besides, my relationship track record is pitiful and the last thing I
need is to get my heart broken again. So Simon Walker can take his charm, his Star
sheets, and his genius IQ and sweet talk some sweet young thing. 
Elaine Madigan is easily the most beautiful woman I’ve ever
met. Hilarious. Sexy. Smart. And unfortunately, she’s also convinced herself
that I’m way too young for, so she’s friend-zoned me. 
Somehow I need to show her how grown up I really am. I need
her to see that I’m ready to settle down–with her. It’s no easy task, but that
doesn’t scare me. After all, I’m a techie, and cracking codes is what I do. No
matter what it takes, I’ll hack the code to her heart.

We’ve been at this
scavenger hunt for a good half hour, and we’re tied at 5. We’ve got a list of
outlandish costumes and the goal is to spot as many, in real time, as we can.
People watching is fun, but let’s face it: I’ve mostly been watching
Elaine–the way she smiles softly, the way she toys with the ends of her hair
or the bracelets on her wrist. I thought I was crushing before, but spending
time with her one-on-one, (and no, the occasional carpool does not count) has
me completely enchanted. 
She scans the bar
again, but the look on her face tells me she’s come up empty. I take a quick
glance around and smile. 
“Sexy nun for the
“No freaking way.”
“Yes freaking way.
Sexy nun right at your back. Wait.okay, look now.” I watch her turn to spot a
co-ed in little more than a crop-top and a habit. Seriously, her skirt’s the
size of a business envelope, which could be an issue in the eyes of the Lord.
“Holy crap, that girl will catch pneumonia.”
“Maybe the sexy
doctors at the bar should lend a hand?”
She laughs, and my
heart expands. “Well, sure. It’s the medically responsible thing to do.”
I shake my head at
the visual. “Sounds like a bad porno.” 
“Is there such a
thing as a good porno?” The sincerity in her voice makes me choke on my beer.
“Oh, God! I’m sorry!
Are you okay? Here, put your arms up. Maybe you need the sexy doctors?”
I cough loudly and
draw a few stares. I smile in reassurance. “I’m good,” I promise, as I clear my
throat a final time. “I don’t need the sexy doctors. Thoroughly enjoying my
evening with a sexy copy-editor, though.”
Elaine blushes at my
compliment as I flag down the scarecrow. Hell, even I’m impressed with the
level of smooth I’ve been able to maintain. Being with Elaine is so easy that
all–well, okay, a solid 50%–of my awkwardness seems to have dissipated.
The scarecrow
returns and nods when I ask for a refill. She turns to Elaine, “Another for
you, too?”
“Yes, thanks, but
I’ll switch to a Shirley Temple Black.” Scarecrow nods again and disappears
into the crowd. 
“Did you seriously
just order a Shirley Temple?  That’s awesome. I don’t think I’ve had one
of those since I was ten.”
She opens her mouth,
and I’d bet my Wookie collection she’s about to knock on my age. 
Emboldened by the
fact that I’m making her laugh and this date is going well, despite my
inability to wear matching shoes, I reach across the table and press my finger
to her lips. “Don’t say it.”
She widens her eyes
with innocence, but I’m not fooled. Gifted program, remember? “Don’t. Whatever

She pulls away
quickly, and I’m about to protest or cry like a baby, but she’s toying with the

my direction. “Want my cherry?”
