Making You Mine (The Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls Book 5) by Melissa Foster plus ebook giveaway - 2 winners!


Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
NEW RELEASE........
Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens. 

Knox Bentley never liked the pomp and circumstance that came with being wealthy. He’d distanced himself from his pretentious family and their fortune as a young adult and found his own path to success. But even with the world at his fingertips, he realizes something is missing, and after a long stay overseas, he finally knows exactly what it is. His no-strings-attached hookups with Aubrey Stewart, an exquisite and stubbornly independent blonde, are no longer enough for him. They connect on every level, but Aubrey is a fierce businesswoman with a new movie channel on the horizon and no time for much else. She is the deal he can’t close, the precious jewel even his billions can’t buy. Now that he’s back in the States, he’s determined to show her that what they have goes beyond the bedroom and finally make her his.

Love in Bloom novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy contemporary romance and women's fiction. For avid readers of the Love in Bloom series, you may have met sexy and hilarious Knox Bentley, Graham Braden's business partner, in Trails of Love, and Aubrey Stewart, one of the badass billionaire founders of the Ladies Who Write (LWW), in Anything for Love.

EMBRACING HER HEART
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross. 

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape. 

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas… 

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa's Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

ANYTHING FOR LOVE
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family's Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can't live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she's intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he's never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn't count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.


Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They've never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible.

TRAILS OF LOVE

When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed's new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace's sister Morgyn's business endeavor. Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn't ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.

Book Review - Glow Girl: Book One in the Droit Series by Michelle Weidenbenner plus $25 Amazon Giveaway!


Willow is just your average sixteen-year-old girl. Okay, maybe not so average. She can heal animals. But for her own safety, her veterinarian parents have made her promise not to use her powers. Unfortunately, sometimes her compassion takes over, and she can't help ... well ... helping.

Willow is a Droit, but hides her Droitism because people like her are feared and hated by those without special abilities. Two of Willow's schoolmates, rumored to be Droits, have simultaneously disappeared.

When Willow's non-Droit friend, Rain, is targeted, Willow wonders whether she should get involved--even if that means putting herself in the line of fire.

A mysterious new friend, Trae, just might be the key to unlock her courage.

In the end, she has a choice: she can deny who she is or declare her ability to heal, but either way, her life will never be the same again.

Read an excerpt
I saved our cat’s life four years ago when I was twelve.
How? I healed her. That was part of my Droit ability, but I
didn’t know it then.
Random, our cat who lived at our animal clinic, had been
sick for months, but my parents are veterinarians, so they were
managing her disease. She wasn’t in pain until the day I was
hanging out at the clinic and found her panting and writhing
while lying on her side.
Mom was in the surgical room setting a fracture and couldn’t
be interrupted. Dad was out picking up meds.
Random’s eyes fluttered and she let out a puny cry. I held
her, wishing I could help. When I stroked her fur around the
knobby tumors on her back, my fingertips tingled and glowed
red. I had no idea what was happening.
Confused, I flapped my hands as if to put out a fire. The
color faded, but as soon as I placed my fingers back on
Random’s side, the glowing started again. I shook my head in
bewilderment and then closed my eyes, allowing whatever this
was to happen. Lightning bolts flashed behind my eyelids. My
hands seemed to have minds of their own, this time locking onto
Random’s body. Pain shot up my fingers and seared all the way
to my neck.
My head felt heavy, like it was full of electric sparks. I
groaned and shuddered but still couldn’t pull my hands away
from her.
I don’t know how long I stayed that way before she purred,
and I opened my eyes to see her licking her paw as if nothing
had happened. I ran my fingers along her back. Her tumors had
disappeared.
The room spun. What had happened?
Random jumped down and darted away with more spring
than she’d had in months. I was certain I was seeing things. I
blinked, but there she sat near the sink, giving her face a bath.
My fingers slowly faded. I turned them palm up, then palm
down, studying them, trying to find a reason for what had
happened, but there was none.
Mom came into the room, holding her hands in the air on the
way to the faucet to scrub. “Were you looking for me?”
“Random doesn’t have cancer anymore,” I said, excitedly.
“Oh, really?” She paused with her hands under the water and
gave me a peculiar look with her head cocked, eyebrows raised.
“How’s that?”
“I healed her.” Nausea bubbled up from my gut. I raced into
the bathroom.
After I puked and returned to Mom, she was sitting in a chair
with Random in her lap, parting her hair. “Her tumors are gone.”
“I know.” Nausea still clung to my ribs, but it wasn’t as bad.
I was too excited about Random being better that it didn’t matter.
“What exactly did you do, Willow?”
Mom stared at me with wide eyes. I thought she’d be proud
of me, but she didn’t act that way.
“My hands mended her,” I said.
“L-l-like h-h-how?” she asked.
“I don’t know. It just happened. I felt sorry for her. She was in pain, and the next thing I knew, my hands lit up and energy
flowed from me to her.” I stared at my fingers again.
“Has this happened before?”
I shook my head.
“Good.” She nodded, licked her lips, and lowered her voice.
“Can you make it stop?”
I shrugged. I didn’t know. “I can try.”
“Don’t do it again, and whatever you do, don’t ever do it in
public.” Her voice was just above a whisper, and she glanced
over her shoulder at the door.
“Why?” Wasn’t it a good thing that Random was better?
Tears welled in my eyes.
“You won’t be safe if people know what you can do,” she
continued in a hushed tone. “Promise me you won’t do it again.”
Swallowing hard, I nodded. “I promise.” But I didn’t
understand.



Our book review

Welcome to the strange and wonderful world of Willow who has to face the challenges of growing up and not only deal with the normal pressures of growing up but finds out she has special powers which are frowned upon in her local community and could lead to her been ignored and face persecution.

The real story behind the book in my opinion is teaching young people each and every one of them has a special talent and it is okay to have that skill if they can use it correctly without abusing or boasting about it. 

It also shows if they have a certain talent and feel down, lonely, and having problems in coping with it there is always someone who is looking over them to offer a protective arm or a confidante to speak to and seek advice.

On the flip side it educates them in how to deal with the other students and people in society who might not fully understand the person or their talent as ignorance breeds hatred.

The book is an excellent read for the teenage audience as our heroine feels like she has nowhere to turn or go but then a new male student comes to the school and she finds herself strangely attracted to him and cannot figure out why.

With her special powers and confusion about growing up, it was well written and the emotions expressed will strike a cord with any young person who is going through a difficult time because as well as a lot of soul searching our heroine displays a lot of humour and finds love from her closest family.

Book 1 has gives us an excellent introduction into Willow’s life and am looking forward to following he adventures in the next book in the series.
