Fast paced stories always keep me entertained. I dive right in and am swept away with the action. From the first scene to the last word, the characters are on the move, fighting bad guys, dealing with danger and falling in love.
MS Kaye's latest preorder- KINDLING THE PAST is such a story. She quickly drops you into the story of Kindle, a woman who has visions and is facing some tough life choices. The action only amps up from there. Danger and death are around every turn!
KINDLING THE PAST is now up for preorder and releases on Sept 14th. This book will mesmerize you with action and adventure.
Kindle fights to survive on her own, to break free from her possessive and violent ex-boyfriend, and tries not to let her best friend, Anna, know she’s in love with her husband. Most of all, she fights the visions she sees of the past—she doesn’t believe in that kind of stuff.
Then Anna is shot and killed.
In their grief, Kindle and Ty, Anna’s husband and Kindle’s Taekwondo instructor, grow closer. Although Kindle is careful never to let him too close, he helps her learn to accept that her visions are real. Eventually, the truth about Anna’s death breaks through into Kindle’s visions, and she must find a way not to let it destroy her.

When you have found an amazing author, you hope that they write and write. You count down the days until their next story releases. But what happens when they finish a series?
COME WITH ME is the last book in the Baxter Boys series by Mindy McKinley. This story was worth the wait! We finally get Ben's story, the one which has been hinting at for the three previous books. Sexy, brooding Ben. The Artist. The one so different than his brothers.
On her last chance to prove herself at her mother’s publishing company, Kat Dunne is given the job no one wants – handling their most impossible client. Assigned to tag along with a writer on his upcoming North American tour, she quickly finds why no one else wanted the job. Ben Baxter is grumpy, awkward, and downright mean. He’s also the hottest man she’s ever laid eyes on and as his walls start to crumble, so does her resolve to remain professional, and her chance to keep her job.
Broody and irritable graphic novelist, Ben Baxter doesn’t want to go on a book signing tour and sure as hell doesn’t want a company chick tagging along. Especially one that lights a fire in him every time he looks at her. He can see right through Kat Dunne and the lie she’s trapped in. She no more belongs in the business world than he does in a designer suit and if it’s the last thing he ever does, he’ll prove to her dreams are worth following. Even if it costs him his publishing contract.
“Okay, so, I’m sure you know why we’re meeting today. Dunne Publishing has paired us up to—”
“You’re my handler,” he interrupted, sitting back in his chair. Whatever little bubble of niceness they had been in for a moment disintegrated around them. “Let’s call it what it is.”
Her eyes flashed briefly before she straightened her shoulders and gave him a hard look. “If that’s what you want to call it, it’s fine by me. The company prefers to call it …”
“Damage control?” He knew he was being a prick, but this whole thing stunk. He was an adult. So what if he didn’t want to fawn over fans everywhere all the time? They were his stories, not theirs.
“Like I said …” Her voice took on a commanding tone. “You can call it whatever you like. The fact of the matter is, you’re a brilliant creator.” He straightened and gave her a tight, superior smile before she continued. “But you are a shitty communicator and an even worse curator of your work and image.”
That smile slid right off his face. He hadn’t expected her to come out and say it so matter-of-factly. He appreciated her frankness, even if it stung. “Not pulling any punches, then, I see.”
“I don’t see why I should.” She stared him down with a stern look. “If you’re not.”
“Good, now that that’s out of the way”—she pushed a single piece of paper across the table at him—“this is the explicit list of behavior expectations that Dunne Publishing has outlined for this North American tour. I’m going to be there to make sure you adhere to them.”
“Or what?” he asked, immediately regretting it.
“Mr. Baxter …” She lowered her voice to a dangerous pitch. “Your contract is due to expire soon and Dunne is willing to go the distance for you, but only if you can clean up your public image. Your current contract and all of your work could be tied up in litigation for years. You could potentially lose out on decades of earnings, and while that might not be on the top of your priority list, I’m sure you’d like to continue Dimension Runners.”

Michigan is beautiful in the summertime. The leaves are green, flowers are blooming and the temperature is still mild with only occasional days in the high 80's. Best of all, it has miles and miles of glorious shoreline. A state which borders most of the Great Lakes, water sports are a popular past time.
People own cottages along the lakes and take off for long weekends or vacations. One of these perfect summer trips is the backdrop for STEALING HAVEN- a Jamie Richmond Mystery.
Even amateur sleuths must get away from the crime of the city and Jamie has set off for the west side of the state for a vacation with her good friend. South Haven, Michigan is a beach town with great food and quaint shops. Just the place to enjoy some sunshine and even a few drinks.... but you have to know Jamie can't help getting her nose into a local burglary.
After months of hard work, Jamie and her best friend, Linda, are on vacation. Lounging on the sandy beaches of South Haven, on the shore of Lake Michigan, the ladies only plan is no plan. No deadlines for Jamie, the investigative reporter. No papers to grade for Linda, the high school teacher. It’s time to kick back and relax.
That lasted until lunchtime on Monday, when they shared a table with Jared, a local cop and Randy, a city official who only had eyes for Jamie. Casual conversation revealed a home invasion, which got Jamie’s curiosity going.
While the two friends explore South Haven, Jamie discovered a pattern with the home invasions. Sharing her clues with Jared, it isn’t long before Jamie and Linda are recruited to help catch the crooks.
Sand, sun, romance and a mystery to solve. Sounds like a perfect vacation for Jamie.
“Jamie, what are we doing?”
“I’m curious. That’s two nights in a row where we’ve seen someone running in the dark. Maybe there is something going on.”
“Why are you looking for trouble? We’re on vacation. Is this a way of diverting my attention from your misbehavior?” A wicked grin flashed across her face.
Ignoring her, I stood at the back of the house. The footprints were still visible in the yard. Randy had been right. There were no signs of activity near the building. But if they were running away from here, where did they come from? I turned around and faced the street, following the diagonal path. I could imagine someone racing between the two houses on the opposite side of the road. Curiosity got the better of me. We walked in that direction. Both houses were dark with no signs of life. I went between them to the backyards.
“Jamie, let’s go. The beach is waiting. Sun, sand, muscular lifeguards with tiny swimsuits could be looking for us even as we’re standing here.”
“There are no lifeguards on our part of the beach.”
“Maybe they’re on vacation, too.”
I was about to give up when something caught my eye. The back door to the house on the left, a quaint little cottage, was pried open. There were several gouges in the wood. Peeking through the window, I could see into the kitchen. The cupboard doors were ajar. Linda stood silently beside me for a moment. Then she moved around the corner. She returned, shaking her head in dismay.

I admit to glancing at the magazines at the grocery store checkout. Some are purely crazy with Alien-Wolfman babies but the ones which feature my favorite actors or stars draw my eyes. I see that this couple is having a baby, another got engaged or...gasp! They broke up.
