There is something about a commoner finding love with royalty. We are fascinated by the story. Just think about how many American's watched the wedding of Meghan Markle to Prince Harry.
Even the splendor of a royal wedding isn't with out it's responsibilities, especially with royalty. There are criteria to follow. Meaning behind each part of the ceremony, from who is invited to the colors of the wedding party.
Escape... elopement must be on their mind- even just a little. Those responsibilities are overwhelming!
Kristine Lynn has woven a romantic story of two royals who seek to escape their duties and fall in love. Too bad for them that they can't really escape. The responsibilities come back to get in the way of their relationship.
REUNITING WITH HER PRINCE is the third book in the Aldonia Royals series and features the same compelling story and incredible characters that Kristine Lynn is known for. Now up for preorder, REUNITING WITH HER PRINCE will be released in ebook and print on Sept 20th. So grab a copy for yourself.
Royal responsibilities have never been such a liability for these monarchs-in-disguise!
When Lissa runs away from the unthinkable fate that awaits her as Princess of Aldonia, a stranger she meets is just the distraction she’s looking for—hot as sin, and sexy as hell. Yep, he’ll help her forget all about her troubles. If only she could forget about him when it’s time for her to return to Aldonia…
… and marry a prince she’s never met in order to keep her family out of crippling debt!
Gael was doing some running away of his own when he met Lissa. He just doesn’t see the need for pedantic practices like arranged marriages anymore, which is what’s awaiting him when he returns to Spain. He wants to marry for love, a possibility he hadn’t considered before meeting Lissa.
So, he gives up the throne to track her down, and sets in motion a cruel twist of fate neither of them could have anticipated. Because the next time he sees Lissa, the woman of his dreams, she’s walking down the aisle to marry the new Galician Prince--his younger brother!
Will the two star-crossed lovers ever find a way out of the royal mess they’re in so they can finally be together?

Love and Secrets often go hand in hand. Little white lies or big "hush-hush" things, we keep certain things from our dates. I know that it took me years and a marriage to be able to share some of my secrets with my husband. With big secrets, we aren't sure how others will respond or if our relationship will survive....
In Julie Navickas' new release- I LOVED YOU YESTERDAY- secrets become between Mavis and Austin when they take a second chance on love. Both have things they are afraid to tell the other person, feeling that they would become deal breakers. Yet, as they keep the secrets hidden... the risk becomes higher.
Secrets always have a way of coming out.
Mavis Benson made a huge mistake. Scratch that--colossal mistake. Twice. Sleeping with her high school sweetheart’s twin brother definitely wasn’t part of the plan… nor was falling in love with him.
But that wasn’t the only complication Mavis faced. When an unplanned pregnancy upends her life at seventeen, Mavis skips town to spare her boyfriend, Josh Templeton, from the fallout. With only a letter of apology, she disappears, but not before confiding her secret to Josh’s brother, Austin.
When Austin resurfaces in her life years later, he brings the past to Mavis’s doorstep. Josh wants her back, Austin isn’t willing to surrender, and the path to happiness isn’t clear. Caught between both men, Mavis must choose between the brother for whom she broke her own heart, and the brother who picked up the pieces.
I LOVED YOU YESTERDAY is a heart-pounding reveal of best kept secrets. The truth is never easy, and neither is putting down this page turner. Fans of Nora Roberts and K.G. Fletcher will want to get a copy of I LOVED YOU YESTERDAY.

Austin pulled back, his breathing heavy. The cologne on the collar of his shirt intertwined with the scent of coffee—sandalwood and Columbian coffee beans fusing in her nostrils.
Mavis opened her eyes, meeting his icy blue gaze six inches away. She stared, finding more in his eyes than she’d ever witnessed before—more than the passion that fueled their relationship.
“My brother sees you as the same girl he loved back in high school,” he whispered. “He wants you to move home, into his house, and ready to bake cookies with a ring on your finger. He’ll pretend the last ten years never happened.”
She pressed a hand over his chest, pushing to increase the distance, but his hold held firm. “Austin…”
“I see you, Princess, the new you. The you that survived. That’s the woman I want, the one who hops on a plane in the middle of the night. The one who loses bets and puts herself out into the world. The one who solves problems, and figures shit out, never one to admit defeat. I want the woman who thrives.” His hand pressed hers into the beat of his heart. “That’s the woman I want, the one I fell in love with in a hotel room in Chicago.”
Her lungs didn’t want to work, each breath held captive in her throat. The love spell he’d cast dizzied her brain, fogging her ability to think. She blinked, staring blankly at the profession of love tumbling from his lips—from the lips of her friend turned… lover?
“You don’t love me, Austin,” she mumbled, pushing away from the hold he held over her.
His eyes closed, releasing her from the challenge. “The hell I don’t, Mavs.” He slumped in his seat, his fingers kneading his forehead. “You let Josh love you because he loves the memory of you, a girl you used to like.” He snorted. “But me? You can’t even fathom my feelings for you because you don’t love yourself as you are today.” He pointed to her, his finger shaking. “And until you realize how fucking incredible you are…”

Harley begins to learn more about herself and the leaders who put her to work killing vampires. Not everything is what it seems.

Harley Sanders has always known one certainty in life: Vampires suck.
As a student at the League, Harley is expected to protect the innocent from the undead, even if her methods might be considered reckless.
While out on a hunt, Harley finds herself face-to-face with the enemy, and in the midst of fighting, ends up becoming the one thing she’s been trained to kill.
A fact only made worse by the newest student of the League who has taken a keen interest in her out of the blue.
Vampire bite? Check.
Venom soaring through my veins? Check.
Annoying cute guy disrupting my life? Super check.
High school definitely bites.
THANKS FOR THE VENOM is a Buffy/Underworld Mash-up where Harley Sanders must face a wall of secrets…from her family, from her bosses, and from the one boy she’s interested in. With newfound powers and a bullseye on her back, she’s got to help the very people she’d been trained to kill. And you thought your high school experience was bad…You’ve got nothing on Harley!
“Harley, if you’re asking me to marry you, I’m afraid I must say no,” he joked. “I mean, we hardly know each other, and you haven’t even bothered to ask my parents for my hand.”
“Will you shut up?” As much as I didn’t want to laugh, I failed. That was the good thing about Drake. He could be annoying, sure, but he knew how to lighten the mood when things became tense. “I’m being serious, Drake.”
“Okay, then shoot.”
“Are you like me?” As the words escaped my lips, I felt a weight lift off my shoulders.
“What do you think?”
“Answering a question with a question doesn’t work,” I answered. “And I think you are.”
“Well, then, you can rest assured knowing you’re right.” He shrugged as he turned the chair around to properly face me. “Although, I do believe I wasn’t supposed to tell you as much just yet.”
“Was my father behind this?”
Drake shook his head no. “The League—more specifically, the Council—had nothing to do with my arrival,” he assured me. “I came here for you, yes, but only because the clan of the vampire you killed is looking for you. And while you might not believe it, I’m your best chance at survival.”

My Soul to Save by Nicole Sobon (A Demonic Birthday)
Some birthdays are special. Mine proves to be life altering. I only hope I can survive it.
How many of you have a mole on your finger? According to my doctor, that's very rare. He hardly ever sees someone with a mole on a finger. Maybe two in a year.
As a woman who deals with body issues, I always loved my hands. They were one of my best features, if you didn't look to closely at my chewed down nails. My fingers were long and thin, the back of my hand plump. Everything in a nice proportion. Best of all, they worked great!
As a writer, my fingers would peck away at the keyboard all hours of the day as I penned my stories of love and happily ever afters. I didn't spend a lot of time and energy on my hands. No fancy nails. They were hardly ever polished, most often natural and trimmed short. I loved what they did, from baking scones to applying lotion to my baby's bottom.
It was my daughter that mentioned that the mole on my left hand was looking dark. In passing, she'd mentioned that "you should get that looked at". My husband agreed with her. Besides it was time for a full body check. I hadn't had one in years. But there wasn't anything I was worried about...it was my husband who had issues with skin cancer.
I was able to get a pretty quick appointment for the skin doctor because I mentioned that my regular doctor was worried about a few spots. I had a lot of skin markings along my legs, stomach and back. Those I was worried about. They often itched and became irritated. While my regular doctor told me those were normal, I wanted to see the specialist in the hopes they had a magic cure for those spots.
The doctor wasn't worried. My spots were normal. Even the adult acne on my face was treatable. The mole on my finger, my middle finger was unusual, but even rarer than having one.... was having one that was cancer. He prescribed some medication and suggested we take off the finger mole, just because.
The surgery was successful and the mole was removed. He'd stitched the area up and when I went back in two weeks later to get the stitches out, the doctor told me that I was one in a million. The mole was cancer. While he was fairly sure that he'd gotten all the cancer during the first surgery, he wanted to go back in and make sure. Words like margins were talked about. So was reconstruction. Because my finger wasn't very big, taking more would mean that my finger would have a deep hole in it, one not able to be stitched back together.
Instead the doctor wanted to take part of the back of my hand and move it over to the finger, giving it a more normal appearance. I'd already faced two surgeries to get rid of "cancerous cells", getting this surgery was a no brainer. The second surgery was scheduled about a month out to give my finger time to heal up from the last one.
I wasn't worried about how it'd look. I was more grateful that we'd found it early and that the doctor could get it all.
Saving my life?? a no brainer.
Needless to say, I wasn't prepared for what would happen, nor how much I used my hand. The doctor had warned me about pulling the stitches. I was told to "take it easy". Of course, that was easier said than done. Typing was a challenge. I could finger peck with my right hand. Anything from opening a door to putting toothpaste on my toothbrush was a challenge. I did overuse my hand. I did pull my stitches, but it was impossible not to. Two more weeks and I'd get the stitches out. But the reconstruction was major. It impacted three fingers and the back of my hand. The doctor had taken the skin from the back of my hand and moved it up and over to my finger to use where he'd taken out so much.
Just a warning... the images below are graphic. They are from the day of the surgery and the weeks after. You can see how my hand changed. I faced an infection from the stitches. My body didn't like them. I had scab issues and more infection even after the stitches were out. This wasn't a journey I thought to take but as I said before... the choice was clear. I wanted the cancer out.
