Isabella is the second in the new adult romance series “The House of Donato”. If you like an enjoyable light-hearted romance, with sensitive love scenes sure to delight and arouse, download this unpredictable and compelling read today.

Review

Isabella Donato just can’t resist those electric blue eyes of Chad Murphy. They are the main reason she fell in love with him. But now, on the eve of their marriage, she’s experiencing twinges of doubt. Why?

Why, indeed? This is the intriguing start to Patricia M. Jackson’s latest novel, and it’s an absorbing, unique tale of romance and conflict, set against the backdrop of professional hockey and small town values.

Isabella takes on the task of tutoring Chad so he can keep his grades up and continue his role as “Manic Murphy” on the Northern Michigan University hockey team. It’s no easy feat. Chad is dyslexic and cannot read. It’s a miracle he’s come this far academically.

But the tutoring sessions turn torrid when Chad and Izzy find they just can’t keep their hands off each other. These scenes are particularly well done, and they are guaranteed to steam up your reading glasses.

We give Isabella five unqualified stars and can’t wait for more from this talented storyteller.

The Music of Us

 In 1970, Lenny can no longer deny that his wife is undergoing a profound change. Despite her relatively young age, her mind succumbs to forgetfulness. Now, he goes as far back as the moment he met Natasha during WWII, when he was a wounded warrior and she—a star, brilliant yet illusive. Natasha was a riddle to him then, and to this day, with all the changes she has gone through, she still is.

“Digging into the past, mining its moments, trying to piece them together this way and that, dusting off each memory of Natasha, of how we were, the highs and lows of the music of us, to find out where the problem may have started?”

To their son, Ben, that may seem like an exercise in futility. For Lenny, it is a necessary process of discovery, one that is as tormenting as it is delightful. He often wonders: can we ever understand, truly understand each other—soldier and musician, man and woman, one heart and another? Will we ever again dance together to the same beat? Is there a point where we may still touch?

This is a historical fiction novel about world war II wounded warrior military romance, a young woman love story. It is also one of family sagas best sellers. Do you like this genre, especially when it is tinged with family saga romance, and wrapped with a second chance in love with a strong female lead? Then this family saga series, Still Life with Memories, is for you.

heat

Feel The Heat 

 She saves him from a fire, then steals his heart without even trying. When white hot attraction kicks in, sparks fly!

Francey Cordaro is a dedicated firefighter, devoted daughter and a loyal friend who has made her way in a man’s world. She rejects material goods, doesn’t give a whit about her striking looks and focuses on saving lives, spending time with her family and friends, working out and playing poker with the guys. Until she meets Alex Templeton.

A wealthy businessman, Alex is the epitome of success in every area of his life. A decent man, he returns home to run the family company when his father takes ill and his brother loses his way. What he can’t control is his reaction to the sexy firefighter who dragged him from near death. She’s gorgeous, fun-loving and challenges him at every turn. But she refuses a relationship with him.

With differences that rival champagne vs. beer, uptown galas vs. karaoke bars, and the world of high finance vs. the reality of walking into burning buildings, their relationship seems doomed. Or is it?

With a secondary reunion romance as fiery as Alex and Francey’s, and cameo appearances of readers’ favorite firefighters from Hidden Cove, as well as Shay’s trademark tense and exciting rescue scenes, this book will pull on your heartstrings and make you route for these very likable characters.

Be sure to read the rest of the Rockford Fire Department: RISKING IT ALL, CODE OF HONOR and NEVER FAR AWAY, as well as all of the Hidden Cove Firefighters series.

*** NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay spent five years riding fire trucks with a large city fire department, eating in their firehouses and interviewing hundreds of America’s Bravest.

This story opens with a bang and keeps going. The reader is pulled right into a big burning fire rescue and it just keeps getting better and better. Francey Cordaro comes from a family of generational firefighters, along with many friends doing the same job. She loves her job and couldn’t think of doing anything else. Her mother left her father and her siblings when they were younger because she couldn’t handle the fact that their dad was a firefighter. When Francey and her unit save Templeton CEO, Alex Templeton, from a burning warehouse he is very grateful. There is something that draws Francey to Alex that he wants to explore but when he realizes he can’t handle what she does for a living things get very difficult for the couple. Also, Francey’s mom is back in their lives wanting a second chance so things really get crazy for this family.

Such a great story! I had never given much thought as to what the spouse of a firefighter went through every time their husband/wife went into dangerous situations. The author has explored this from the male’s point of view as it is usually the woman left to worry about her husband/boyfriend. This book really made me stop and think about what that must be like. Such a great read, strong, interesting and nail-biting, edge of your seat plot. The heroine was very strong and so likeable and the hero was very hot, sexy and so tormented by what the heroine does for a living. I’ve got to get the next book in this series to see what happens to best friend, Dylan O’Roarke!

Tell Me a Story 

A flirtatious reading of erotica blossoms into something deep and tender in the steamy Florida heat…

Tell Me a Story: Episode ONE of The Story Series

Emma, a free-spirited bookstore owner in Orlando, keeps her business afloat with innovative ideas. Her most popular evening event is Story Brothel, where customers can pay writers to read aloud to them in a story-time for two, complete with cocktails. Despite the name, the event is usually tame. But things take a steamy turn when a handsome, urbane businessman hires Emma for a session in a private cabana. Daringly, she shares with him a reading of her erotica. Soon both of them are feeling the effects … and Emma’s wondering what kind of lover is underneath his expensive suit.

Caleb may be a billionaire real estate mogul, but he’s never been captivated by a woman as he is by the lovely, quirky Emma. Her rockabilly vintage dresses make him long to strip them off and do very wicked things to her. And her refusal to share her personal life only makes him more curious.

Soon the couple are spending every available moment together. But Emma’s building is in danger of being razed out from under her bookstore … and worse, Caleb may be behind her problems. Can she trust him with her life as she does with her body? Or will the prickly walls built during her harsh past keep them apart?

Cupcakes and Cowboys 

He’s everything that broke her heart

Cassidy wants two things—to make her cupcake shop a success, and to forget the ex-fiance who traded her for the lights of Hollywood. She can’t stand actors, movies, or anything resembling the guy who ruined her life. So when Jase—best friend of her ex and A-list actor—shows up at the ranch to research an upcoming role, ignoring her past becomes impossible.

Jase is desperate to escape Hollywood, and ranch life gives him a temporary reprieve. But ranching is starting to feel less like preparing for a role and more like the life he’s always wanted. And he can’t help envisioning Cassidy as his co-star. Can Jase convince this stunning cupcake shop owner that he’s really a country boy at heart?

Devour this deliciously sweet romance today!

With a novella format the romance must move at a faster pace while maintaining believability.

Well done, Ms. Armstrong!

The characters are fully developed, the conflicts and stakes set, and the emotions come pouring off the page. I rooted for both MC’s from page one and enjoyed reading the story from both their perspectives. A delightful sweet and clean romance.

One on page villain, one off page. A loving family. Great scenery. Makes me want to learn to ride a horse and go visit Oklahoma.

Cowboy hat off to Ms. Armstrong. And now I need a cupcake!

I reviewed the e-book version of Cupcakes and Cowboys and I have yet to find a book Lindzee has written that I don’t love. This one is no different. I don’t usually reach for novellas because they seem too rushed for my liking. Events move too fast and you just don’t get to know as much about the characters. In this case, however, it was just enough time for me to see how hurt Cassidy was and to feel for her, but then also to be excited for the romance to start. It was fun reading about a bakery owner, too. I don’t think there was a part time of this book I didn’t enjoy! Great job, Lindzee! I highly recommend this novella to any romance fans out there!

This a great first book in the series. You don’t want to miss it. The characters are well defined. There are several twists and turns in the plot. There is a big family secret. The characters are not perfect. The brothers are at odds with each other, the mother is domineering and controlling and add to the mix a spoiled rotten sister. But surprisingly enough before the book is over you understand each a little better and learn to like them. The secondary characters really make the book interesting. And what a jaw dropping cliff hanger in the end. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. Buy this book and any book by this author. You can’t go wrong!

Unexpected Reality

Expect the unexpected. That’s what they say, but it’s easier said than done.

How do you expect a change so huge it rocks you to your core?

How do you prepare yourself for an event that will alter your life forever?

One breath

One second

One minute

One hour

One day at a time, you learn to live with your unexpected reality.

From the moment I saw this cover I had to read this book. Sometimes judging a book by the cover can completely backfire on you, as I am sure you know, but this one was a complete win!

I love a single dad story, they are my jam, but they can easily come with a lot of unnecessary drama. I love how Kaylee executed this one. Ridge has a one night stand and months later finds out the girl got pregnant. It’s unexpected and while he liked the girl, there isn’t any baby momma drama. It was actually handled in such a way I thought it was perfect.

Kendall went to school with Ridge’s sister and is recently back in town. Her and Ridge actually connect since she works at the pediatricians office his kid attends. I loved how Kendall immediately wanted to help Ridge and fell in love with his son. Her connection to both of them brought a huge smile to my face and let’s be real gave me the warm and fuzzies.

Unexpected Reality hit all my hot buttons, it gave me a plot I love. Sweet moments that made me smile big and hot moments that made the story just more. I know I may love this story a little more than most because I love single dad stories, but even if it’s not your jam it’s still a sweet read with tons of feels.

The Ladies’ Room

 

Secrets told in the church ladies’ room are supposed to stay in the ladies’ room. But that doesn’t mean that what Trudy overhears there during her great-aunt Gertrude’s funeral won’t change the rest of her life.

Trudy has a daughter in the middle of a major rebellion, a two-timing husband who has been cheating for their entire married life, and a mother with Alzheimer’s residing in the local nursing home. She doesn’t really need a crumbling old house about to fall into nothing but a pile of memories and broken knickknacks.

Billy Lee Tucker, resident oddball in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, lived next door to Gert, and in her will she leaves him the funds to help Trudy remodel the old house. That’s fine with Billy Lee, because he’s been in love with Trudy since before they started school. And just spending time with her is something he’d never ever allowed himself to dream about.

A beautiful home rises up from the old house on Broadway, and right along with it rises up a relationship. But is Trudy too scarred from what she heard in the ladies’ room to see a lovely future with Billy Lee?

Team Mom: A Sweet Contemporary Romance 

Julie’s calm life is thrown a curve ball when her brother arrives the night before his seven-month deployment asking her to take care of his son. As a preschool teacher, she’s used to dealing with toddlers, not nine-year-olds. Noting her nephew’s interest in baseball, Julie signs him up for little league. She’s anything but thrilled to find out that his coach is a celebrity.

Eric returned to St Marys to lick his wounds and start over. But even in his hometown, he’s known more for his unfortunate appearance on a reality dating show than for his seven years in the major leagues. All he has to show for that poor decision is an ex-wife and a broken heart.

Julie’s obvious disapproval makes her the perfect choice for his team mom. If she doesn’t like him, she won’t cause any problems. But will that be enough to keep his growing interest in her in check? And as Julie’s preconceived notions about sports figures slowly unravel, will she be able to resist the man behind the public persona?

I loved this story, it was sweet, clean, and most of all it was just a straight forward book, without conflicts and huge misunderstandings you usually get in a romance book. The slow building romance was a pleasant surprise, too. Little Jordan was so precious, and let’s face it….I’ve always been a sucker when it comes to animals and kids. I loved the playful interaction between the two brothers, Eric and Matt. They were hysterical, without trying to be. Just seemed so natural and real, but so did the relationship between Julie and Eric. I was so impressed that I just downloaded the next book in the series.

This book went so fast! I hated to put it down. The characters were sweet and made you fall in love with them. Book 2, here I come…..thanks for the great story.

Love Unfeigned

Love to the chords of a classic jazz band, spanned over more than a decade…

Lorraine: plucky and competitive. Isaiah: impish, with a smile that gleams in more ways than one.

From the time the two first square off for a fierce wall ball battle as children, Lorraine and Isaiah can’t help knowing each other, but neither can they avoid passions and misfortunes lining their path to young adulthood. When the breakup of Isaiah’s family disrupts the haven he’s shared with Lorraine, their natural relationship is eventually threatened by jealousy, abandonment, and a life-altering trauma too grave to…forget. As one year follows another, and another, what might it take to reunite this divided man and woman in love: love undeniably real and unbounded by time?

Excellent, clean love story that is every bit as much about the journey as it is the destination.

The author is quite gifted at painting pictures as well as emotions, and the way she presents the story is every bit as good as the story itself. I found myself re-reading lines just to appreciate her turn of a phrase or fresh take on common interactions between two people. While there is some overreach in a line or two along the way, they are well-worth the overall work.

In the movie “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles,” the audience is guided through a light-hearted, comedic storyline until an atom bomb is dropped on them without warning about 90% into the movie. It causes the viewer to re-think the entire movie and its characters up t that point. “Love Unfeigned” is similar. The author tells a love story that follows the two main characters from third grade into adulthood with many sweet, tender moments along the way. It is about three-quarters of the way through that the author brilliantly drops her own atom bomb, causing readers to re-think everything they’d read to that point.

Very well done. Strongly recommend this novella.
