Rescue Love by Melissa Keir
Dogs, Danger, and a Cross-Country Trip…. Nothing has gone easy in Alexis Bandit’s life. On a trip to rescue mistreated puppies and drive them to their forever homes, she meets up with a tuxedo-clad cowboy on the run and offers him a ride.
Jason Fields thought he had it all—a beautiful fiancée, a loving family, and great job—until he overheard his future father-in-law talk about arranging his murder. Now he’s on the run, without money, a phone, or a credit card. With a killer on their tail, four mischievous pups, and many miles of highway, what could go wrong?
Snow Bird Springs: TROY by Cheryl Gorman
Artist Alexandra “Alex” Kent has lost her creative mojo and is desperate to get it back. Upon learning of the legend of Snow Bird Springs, Colorado, she arrives in town ready to do whatever is needed to find it again. The legend demands she sacrifice something of value in exchange for having her wish granted. But her most valued possession is her wounded heart, and she vows never to give it away again.
There is nothing Troy Slade loves more than ranching except maybe women as long as they aren’t interested in any long-term commitments. He has seen firsthand how love can tear a man’s life apart. But when he meets Alex, she touches a nerve he doesn’t want touched and makes him long for a family of his own. Because of his background, he doesn’t believe he is good enough. Can Alex sacrifice her heart for Troy’s love? Will Troy sacrifice the belief he isn’t good enough for Alex’s love and the family he has always wanted?
UPSTAGING THE COWBOY by Leslie P. Garcia
Can a former Marine and a Hollywood diva facing apocalyptic changes in their lives salvage new beginnings together? When Stone Winters joined the Marines, he always meant to come home. A woman’s impossible dream kept him away so long that he doesn’t think there’s anything left—especially not when he meets Price Adams, a film star with another impossible dream. He just doesn’t think he’s up for that again. Price Adams traded in a childhood on her grandparents’ ranch for Hollywood glitz in spite of being a teenage mother. Torn between the stardom she won and full-time custody of her daughter, she accepts one last role—in Cowboy Apocalypse, an inane movie about zombies being filmed on ranches around deep south Texas. Burned by men more times than she can remember, Price doesn’t want a man in her life—especially not one who looks down on her career and the courage she needs to let it all go.
COWBOY KIND OF FORGIVENESS by Becca Turner
For many, Christmas is a joyous time of year meant for families and friends to gather near. For Everly Thibodaux, it's a time of tragedy and heartbreak. Her twin brother died before the holiday in a freak accident, leaving her alone and empty. Her brother's best friend, the man she carried strong feelings for, witnessed the event that shattered both their worlds. All her anger falls on him for destroying her life.
Swift Scott's life crumbled until he fell into a bottle to drown the pain of losing a friend and the misery he caused for the woman he loved. After two years of self-destruction, he pulls himself together and moves back to Swells, hoping for reconciliation and forgiveness from Everly. Except that Everly, like him, is stuck in a well of heartache and grief. He knows he can't force her to love him or even tolerate his presence, but he'd settle for seeing her smile again, no matter the cost. In a small town like Swells, they can't avoid each other forever and circumstances draw them together once more. As the one person who truly understands her heartbreak, Swift can be the only man who helps Everly learn to love again.

Can they overcome the mistakes of the past and find love again?

Love is...a New Release!
Love Is- the latest release by author SE Harmon.
If you love a story of friends to lovers with a dash of humor, you're going to love Love Is.
Sometimes what starts out as fake can get all too real.
Things started out innocently enough. Put on the spot by my sister about going on a blind date, I mention I’m already dating someone else. But then she wants to meet him. Better yet, she wants me to bring him to our upcoming family gathering so he can meet everyone. Which would be a fantastic idea if he wasn’t a complete work of fiction.
My best friend, Julian, suggests I bring a fake date, and it sounds like a good plan. What could go wrong? We’ll go home, spend the weekend with my family, and they’ll stop setting me up on blind dates. No one gets hurt and no one has to know. Easy peasy, right?
But then there’s Jackson. And it’s no coincidence that his last name is Sparks.
Maybe one day I’ll learn that listening to Julian is always a recipe for disaster. Someday I’ll remember that he talks faster than he thinks, and any idea out of his mouth is probably a bad one. Until then, let me explain how I got into this mess. My name is Avery Jane, and I’m about to show you what happens when a fake relationship gets all too real.
Before I could change my mind, I called out for Julian. “Julie!”
After a moment, he cracked the screen door and stuck his head through. He had a pint of my whole fruit sorbet in one hand and a spoon handle sticking out of his mouth. “Don’t call me that. Whadd’ya want?”
I scowled. “Black cherry is my favorite. Isn’t that my last one?”
He scowled right back, pulling out the spoon and pointing it in my direction. “Didn’t you drink my last wine cooler?”
Oh. Memory refreshed. Indignation shelved. “I need a date,” I declared.
“Honey, you are not my type, fabulous hair notwithstanding.”
“Get over yourself, Sparks.” I flipped the aforementioned hair over my shoulder. I closed the browser window before I officially went insane. “Find me someone suitable.”
The word “suitable” really could mean just about anything. I rubbed the back of my neck, thinking. “I don’t know,” I finally said. “The usual suspects.”
“So…Kevin Spacey then?” Julian made a frustrated noise. “Come on, give me something to work with. Tall? Short? Blond? Brunette?”
“Just pick someone. Someone…nice.”
Nice. That sounded corny as hell, but that was where I was in my life. I didn’t care how he looked or what he did. I needed someone to play a role. Someone to take home and trot in front of my family to prove to everyone I was perfectly all right.
And if he could be hot enough to make Adam’s bottom lip drop like a scroll, well, I could probably live with that.
About the Author:
S.E. Harmon has had a lifelong love affair with writing. It’s been both wonderful and rocky (they've divorced several times), but they always manage to come back together. She's a native Floridian with a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters in Fine Arts, and now splits her days between voraciously reading romance novels and squirreling away someplace to write them. Her current beta reader is a nosy American Eskimo who begrudgingly accepts payment in the form of dog biscuits.
I saw Bohemian Rhapsody on Friday morning to a mostly packed theater. At the end of the movie, the crowd applauded and stood up- showing how moved they were by the story. While not about Freddie Mercury, he did play a large part. You can read my review HERE.
I'd love to hear more about your thoughts on the movie or your favorite Queen song! :)

Melissa Keir has always wanted to be an author when she wasnât hoping for a career as a racecar driver. Her love of books was instilled by her mother and grandparents who were avid readers. Sheâd often sneak books away from them so that she could fantasize about those strong alpha males and plucky heroines.
Melissa doesnât believe in down time. Sheâs always keeping busy. Melissa is a wife and mother, an elementary school teacher, a movie reviewer with WHMI (a local radio station), owner of a publishing company as well as an author. Her home blends two families and is a lot like the Brady Bunch, without Alice- a large grocery bill, tons of dirty dishes and a mound of laundry. She loves to write stories that feature happy endings and is often seen plotting her next story.
Sheâd love to hear from you!
