New Release and Giveaway : Can't Fight This Feeling by Miranda Liasson

Can't Fight This Feeling (Spikonos Brothers Book 2) 
by Miranda Liasson 


Widowed psychologist Maggie McShae is ready to find someone who won't make her heart beat fast, her knees grow weak, or make her feel hot and cold at the same time. No one she can really love, because love brings too much pain.
Drew Poulos, son of a billionaire, is hiding out in Mirror Lake, working at his brothers' brandy company. He inspires those very feelings Maggie's determined to avoid. The hunky businessman, who left his high society bride at the altar, is the last person she'd ever seriously date...but he might just be perfect for a fling...
Drew's too heartbroken to ever trust any woman again, but the sexy psychologist is the perfect person to deflect his family's attention as his brother marries the woman Drew once thought was his.
As sparks fly, two injured hearts might just find that true love can be even better the second time around....

He gripped her head firmly with both hands and pulled it toward him, then planted a kiss tenderly on her forehead. “Don’t be afraid,” he said in a low, calming voice that touched her to the core. Still cupping her face with his hands, he looked deeply into her eyes and said, “I want us to try, Maggie. To have a real relationship. To go wherever it is you’re willing to go.” He smiled. “Besides, I can’t resist a girl who reads Harlan Coben.”
“I do James Patterson too. And Tess Gerritsen. And John Grisham.”
“Now you’re really turning me on.” He reached out and kissed her firmly, possessively. In a way that stamped her as his. Then he pulled back a little and scanned her face, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.
“Don’t go out with the fireman anymore.”
“Okay,” she whispered.
And he kissed her once more. Slow and gently, his lips barely grazing hers. Angling his face better over hers, he brought their lips flush in a deep, sensual kiss. She didn’t realize it, but she’d been waiting for this, missing it since the first time they’d made love. Despite the sudden shakiness she felt down to her bones, despite the fact that she was scared out of her ever-loving mind, nothing had ever felt so damn good.
“Maggie,” he said, stroking her cheek and looking into her eyes. “I never felt this way about anyone. But I need us to promise to be honest with each other. No matter how difficult it is.”
“Okay,” she murmured, barely able to concentrate. “I’ll be more honest. Your dog is spoiled. And by the way—what, may I ask, is she doing in my dog’s bed?”
“They worked it out. So maybe we can too.”
Suddenly he was pushing against her, toppling the both of them to the couch, kissing her deep and hard and wet, until her toes curled and every sensible thought flew far away. She had the vague impression of popcorn spilling, but it didn’t really register. Because his delicious weight was on top of her, and she couldn’t get enough of him, of his good clean smell, of his magical lips, of his hands, roving all over, sliding over the hot skin beneath her shirt.

Can't Fight This Feeling is the second book of the Spikonos Brothers and can be read as a standalone. 

Wow, a beautiful love story between two people who had a rough past in their lives. 

Maggie had a wonderful marriage, until her husband (Corey) died of cancer, leaving her and her son alone. Now it's over 3 yrs since his passing and she decides she needs to move on, but can she. She is very protective of her son, Griffin and doesn't know how to take the first step to get back in the game. 

Drew who left his fiancée at the altar and has come to Mirror Lake to hide for the public. He overhears Maggie on the phone trying to get laid and tries to give her advice. But he doesn't want her to date anyone, so he decides to take her to his brother's wedding, so maybe he can satisfy that itch he has for her. 

What he doesn't tell Maggie is that his brother's fiancée, Sondra and him was in a long staying relationship until she betrayed him. Does Drew still want Sondra and how does that affect Maggie's growing feelings for him?

I was taken on a journey of self discovery and romance in a small town of Mirror Lake. Watching two people for different backgrounds fall in love and become one was beautiful.

Miranda writing style is full of love, humor and enjoyment and you won't want to put her books down. Miranda writes a sweet love story with a touch of spice.

I highly recommend this book and all of the Mirror Lake books she has written.

I’m an author of contemporary romance,  represented by Jill Marsal of the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
In 2013, I won Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award® for a story that became This Thing Called Love, my first novel, a small town romance that’s heartwarming, a bit funny, and a little sexy. The Golden Heart contest changed my life forever and put me on the rollercoaster ride of being a published author. Luckily, the name of that first book got changed. The initial title was Baby on Board! Help!, a title my husband thought of minutes before I had to hit the Send button. Imagine that name being called out in front of 2000 people at the National Romance Writers of America conference. Yeah.
I also write the same kinds of stories for Entangled Indulgence–the Indulgence line is  stories about wealthy alpha guys and the women that tame them…except my alphas have definitely got a softer side to them.
In 2018, I’ll be publishing with Grand Central’s Forever Romance line. I’m very excited about that!
I write romance because I love stories about the experience of being human, and love is the universal experience we all share. I also love stories that have happy endings and make me laugh. I hope my stories make you laugh a little, too.
For about five years before writing contemporary romance, I wrote Regency and early Victorian historical romance (those stories are still under my bed and probably will be forever, as there’s a reason they weren’t published) and I still love to read historical romance. I hold a masters degree in Literature and read widely across many genres. I love Jane Austen and am a total John Keats fan girl!  I always have multiple books going at once and almost never go anywhere without one. My favorite books are ones that hit you right in the heart. And have happy endings. And make me laugh. Sad book, unhappy ending–um, no thanks. Well, maybe for good discussion purposes. Maybe.
I am a proud member of my local RWA chapter, the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the Romance Writers of America, which mentored me on my journey as a writer. I live in Northeast Ohio with my husband and three kids, and Posey, a rescue cat with more attitude than my kids, who are all in college or grad school now!
If I’m not writing or reading, I’m probably biking in our beautiful Northern Ohio MetroParks, or watching The Bachelor with my girlfriends (and complaining about what a trashy show it is, lol!).
Thanks for stopping by and I’d love to hear from you! You can use my contact page and please feel free to follow me on Facebook or Twitter.

New Release Blitz and Review: The Billionaire Takes All by J. S. Scott

A-list movie star and billionaire JulianSinclair learned from past tragedy that life doesn’t come with multiple takes. Now that he’s figured out what he wants—in the lush form of redheaded Kristin Moore—he’s got one chance to claim it. Between working as a medical assistant and filling in at her parents’ bar, Kristin has no time for pleasure. So Julian is bringing her to his brother’s Vegas wedding, where their mutual attraction can finally get a starring role.
What happened in Vegas has followed Kristin right back to Amesport, Maine. In the space of one magical weekend, the leading man in all her X-rated fantasies whisked her off to Sin City for breathtaking sex, followed by an “accidental” marriage she doesn’t remember. Kristin fully expects Julian to demand a quickie divorce. But instead he’s daring her to go all-in. To gamble everything on a love that might be too good to be true…or the best, wildest adventure of their lives.

What can I say, I love J.S. Scott's latest book The Billionaire Takes All.
It is full of love, passions and banter between two wonderful characters.

Julian Sinclair is a billionaire in his own right, but decided to make it on his own in Hollywood. However; the price of fame can come at a cost sometimes and regret can change people.

Kristin is a medical assistant, but also works at her father's bar after hours to help keep it afloat. She is feisty, but will do anything especially regarding her parents. 

Julian wants Kristin and decides to whisk her off to his brother's wedding in Vegas. One night of making Kristin's dreams come true leads to marriage while Kristin is total mashed. As Kristin returns to Amesport, Maine, she has no memory of this so called wedding and Julian left earlier without letting her know.

How will she react when Julian informs her that they are married? Is she willing to give him and herself a chance on happiness?

I loved how Julian and Kristin banter with each other and yes the heat between is very hot....

The reader also gets a glimpse into Xander's living hell and this is a book that I can't wait to read. I know J.S. Scott will give Xander the HEA he deserves. 
If you love a high-quality romance with a lot of passion this book is for you and I highly recommend it. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Novel: Can be read as a standalone within The Sinclair series. 
Characters: Hollywood actor with a heart of gold and a caretaker who has a lot of love. Both are both very strong independent characters that fit together. 
Writing: Very smooth, developed, and insightful.
Storyline: Sexy, passionate love story with a HEA 
Heat: Sizzling

El Juego del Multimillonario ~ Kade: La Obsesión del Multimillonario ~ Libro 4 (Spanish Edition) by J. S. Scott

La Obsesión del Multimillonario~Kade
De la Autora J.S. Scott

Acabada su carrera como jugador profesional de fútbol americano debido a un trágico accidente, el multimillonario Kade Harrison emprende la tarea de resolver un misterio para su cuñado y amigo, Max Hamilton. Ahora que ha perdido la carrera que lo significaba todo para él y que ocupaba cada minuto de su día, Kade busca algo que le suponga un reto. Sin embargo, lo que empieza como un simple favor pronto se convierte en mucho más de lo que esperaba cuando la mujer a la que intenta localizar se le escurre cada vez que está a punto de encontrarla. Cuando por fin la arrincona, las cosas empiezan a complicarse aún más. Asha Paritala no es en absoluto como se esperaba. La mujer que ha rastreado como un favor a Max pronto se convierte en la mujer que desea para sí mismo, una mujer que hace que broten en su interior instintos de protección y altamente depredadores que no sabía que poseía. Pronto, Kade descubrirá que quiere que Asha se rinda por completo al deseo y la pasión que vibra con intensidad entre ellos dos, pero también quiere su confianza, lo único que la historia de Asha hace que a ella le resulte difícil darle. ¿Podrá convencerla Kade de que merece la pena arriesgarlo todo por algunas cosas?

Atrapada entre dos mundos, Asha Paritala no tiene casa, está arruinada y dañada después de una vida de abuso y abandono. Nacida de madre americana y padre indio inmigrante, Asha fue criada como una mujer india por una familia de acogida tras la muerte de sus padres biológicos cuando era poco más que un bebé. Ha pasado toda su vida bajo el control de otros hasta que finalmente se escapó hace dos años, y está decidida a mantener su libertad, aunque eso signifique que tenga que luchar para sobrevivir. Pero su determinación se pone a prueba cuando conoce a Kade Harrison. Después de que éste la ayude en una mala situación, se encuentra empezando a confiar en Kade como nunca antes había confiado en otro hombre. Él es todo lo que ella siempre ha pensado que debería ser un hombre, pero ¿podrá perderse en él por completo sabiendo que está dañada y confusa? ¿Es realmente posible que sea la hermana perdida de dos personas como Max Hamilton y Maddie Hudson? Asha se siente tentada por la posibilidad de tener una familia y por el encanto irresistible de un hombre como Kade Harrison. ¿Podrá una mujer atrapada entre dos culturas, tan imperfecta y retraída, estirar el brazo realmente y coger lo que quiere? ¿O el instinto de huir del dolor de su pasado acabará con la esperanza de felicidad para su futuro?

Descubre si dos almas rotas pueden curarse mutuamente en El juego del multimillonario, libro 4 de la serie La obsesión del multimillonario.
Ésta es una novela completa sin finales de suspenso, para mayores de 18 años debido a las escenas sexuales y el lenguaje gráfico.

Sur de California, hace dos años
La mujer golpeada, maltratada y magullada que yacía en el suelo del salón de su apartamento gimió débilmente, apenas consciente después de la paliza que le había propinado su marido. Había intentado esconderse por todos los medios, estar en cualquier otra habitación que aquella en la que estuviera su marido cuando llegara a casa del trabajo aquel día. Por extraño que parezca, tristemente empezaba a saber con exactitud cuándo iba a sentir el dolor de su ira. Últimamente, ocurría cada vez más a menudo, normalmente por razones que ella no alcanzaba a comprender. No le contestaba mal, no era desobediente y hacía todas sus tareas de la casa. No parecía importar. Siempre había alguna infracción, algo que la hacía merecedora de un castigo.
«¡Sobrevive! ¡Sobrevive! ¡Sobrevive!».
Abrió un ojo hinchado y se puso en pie con dificultad. Su marido se había ido en un ataque de cólera. Había llegado la hora. Si no salía pronto de allí, sabía que llegaría el día en que ya no podría ponerse en pie y marcharse. Su resistencia había desaparecido, pero sus ganas de vivir eran más fuertes que la culpa y la vergüenza.
«¡Corre! ¡Corre! ¡Corre!».
Fue a trompicones hasta su armario, reunió unas cuantas cosas básicas y las metió en un bolso maltrecho. Tomó su bolso, que contenía menos de cincuenta dólares, volvió al salón entre dolores y se detuvo al oír unos pasos pesados en el vestíbulo.
«¿Ha vuelto? Por favor, que no sea él».
Contuvo la respiración y esperó hasta que las pisadas pasaron junto a su puerta; todo su cuerpo tembló de alivio cuando exhaló aire a toda prisa y puso una mano temblorosa sobre el picaporte. Sacó las llaves de su bolso y las arrojó en la mesa junto a la puerta, un símbolo a sí misma de que nunca volvería. Lo que le ocurriera en el futuro tenía que ser mejor que su pasado.
«Estoy sola. Estoy dañada. Estoy arruinada, con menos de cincuenta dólares a mi nombre. Y estoy asustada».
Sin embargo, ninguna de esas cosas iba a desanimarla ahora. Echó un último vistazo rápido al apartamento, reconoció que nada de lo que había allí le pertenecía de cualquier forma y que aquello nunca había sido un hogar. Había sido su infierno, su prisión. No tenía nada que perder. Encontraría la manera de construirse una nueva vida. 
«¡Sobrevive! ¡Sobrevive! ¡Sobrevive!».
La mujer huyó y nunca volvió la vista atrás, esperanzada de dejar su dolorosa historia a sus espaldas.
