BLURB:

Katz Almira’s mission is clear—travel to the past, steal the note that ruins the world, travel back to the present. Easy. She’s the best pickpocket Time Weavers, Inc. has ever had. Posing as a poor widow in Regency London, she convinces her target, Lord John Byron, a man as sexy as he is wealthy, to take her in off the streets. But at her request to keep her hidden, instead of his cushy manor, he allows her to stay in a warehouse full of orphan boys he cares for there.

It’s the perfect place to hide, and bonus, her new roommates can help her find the mysterious note. With John as their pseudo-father, they know what he does every day, and with who. Katz can’t afford any distractions, but she soon finds herself getting attached to the orphans—and John—even helping him plan for their futures.

Each day she spends in the past is another day closer to her deadline, another day closer to returning to her own time, and another day John and this makeshift family get dangerously closer to her heart. But Katz staying in the past would have dire consequences for them all.

REVIEW:

I was super excited to read this series, I'm a huge fan of Timeless the tv show and after reading the synopsis for the Time Weavers series, it was calling my name.

A Pocket of Time follows Katz and team member of the Time Weavers Inc. who is given the task of going back in time to when Napoleon existed to reverse something that disrupted the current history. USA is no longer and they need to correct a note that carried special information and make sure it got into the right hands. Katz goes undercover as a middle class widow who joins a young group of pick pocketers and the man who protects them, the wealthy Lord John Byron. But when the heart start causing problems as Katz gets close to him, she starts to question if changing history is worth letting her heartbreak.

Katz is a fantastic lead, she grew up on the streets and going back in history and once again putting herself on the streets with young boys who are like her, she is able to adapt quickly. She becomes protective over the boys who are unknowingly helping her change history back to the correct ways. Her connection to Lord John Byron was entertaining at first because their interactions were hilarious, he had no idea how much of a handful Katz was going to be. Their chemistry was their right from the start and every interaction there after was more and more steamy, until the pages caught fire.

Overall this was such a great new series for me as well as new author, I did not read the first book, however I never felt lost. I look forward to going back and reading what happened to the first couple because their story sounds like a great one. In the end I highly recommend this series not only for historical romances lovers but for anyone who enjoys history, as the history aspects were fantastically well thought out.

Series: Hope Valley
Author: Jessica Prince
Release Date: March 8
Contemporary Romance; Small Town Romance




When it came to the men in her life, Charlotte Belmont was cursed. She’d known losers, cheaters, abusers, and criminals, so it went without saying, she stopped trusting her judgment a long time ago. Then Dalton came into her life; a good, dependable man who made her heart race and her body hot. When she felt herself falling for him, she did the only thing she could think to protect them both . . . she ran like hell. 

Dalton Prescott was a protector by nature, so when the woman he’d been tasked to keep safe was almost killed on his watch, he carried that guilt like a weight on his shoulders. What made matters worse was that before everything went south, Dalton had started to care for Charlotte in a way that had nothing to do with his job. 

She’s determined to ignore their attraction and keep him at a distance, but he’s playing for keeps and has no intention of losing. However, when ghosts from the past start popping up, bringing with them a whole new threat, Dalton may be the only man who can keep her safe this time.

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

{Release Blitz+ Review} The Bluff by Willa Nash


The Bluff by Willa Nash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
THEME: Fake Marriage 

BLURB:

As Calamity's newest resident, Everly Christian thought life in small-town Montana would be dull and tame--and she needs a little mundane after the last few chaotic years. But one night, boredom drives her to the local bar, where she finds herself sitting beside a handsome and mysterious artist.

The man is anything but dull and tame, especially in the bedroom, and when she steps out of his shower and overhears his conversation, life gets interesting again.

Reese Huxley needs a wife.

And why shouldn't Everly be the bride?

>She's got her reasons for agreeing to the hasty nuptials--reasons she's keeping to herself. As long as she can stop herself from falling in love with her husband, she'll make it out of this sham marriage in one piece. But Everly has a weakness for wayward men, and the more Hux pushes her away, the more she realizes this bluff is anything but a lie.

REVIEW:

I really enjoyed the first book in the Calamity Montana series, but I LOVED! The second installment The Bluff. My goodness Hux stole my heart and Everly is a fantastic, down to earth, truthful woman who just needs to find something good. Willa Nash aka Devney Perry rocked this book and the romance was kicked up ten notches in this one, boy was I fanning myself with Hux and his alpha maleness.

The Bluff follow Everly as she navigates her new life in Calamity after the insane stalker caused her and her best friend so much fear and made her change her path in life. She's looking for whats next but unsure where and what that is, her signing was just a job and now shes in limbo, that is until she meets Hux aka Reese Huxley. He changes everything for her, their steamy encounter and connection just keeps on going, even though both don't want attachments. But when Hux needs a life change for his daughter and wanting to giver her a life she needs away from her toxic mother, Ev gives him the one thing he never wanted, a wife.

I loved this story so much, Ev totally won me over with her personality. She wanted to do some good, she needs something and didnt know what it was until Hux gave her that, her family was always distant and she something in Hux and his daughter that she wanted to help with. I felt so much for her, she was getting the short end of the stick with everyone kind of giving her the cold shoulder not knowing her true intensions were good. She took the brunt of everything for Hux and it really showed how awesome this woman is.

Hux was a totally a moody alpha male, the whole town thought bad of him because of his past and he just kept his quiet distance. He is successful running his gallery, but he wants to give his daughter a good life, he just need to chance and his past kept blocking him. Ev gives him that stretch and with the smoking hot connection, he's starting to come out of his shell. He has a lot of issues with trust and opening up, but when he does, its all for his daughter and now Ev.

Overall this story through me into a whirlwind of emotions and I loved every minute. There is a lot of suspense and lot of learning for both leads and they try to navigate their new life. This could be read as a stand alone but the reader wouldn't understand the insane backstory on why Everly is in Calamity.

BLURB:

Sabrina Kent is my best friend. Our childhood was carefree and full of daring adventures. Then we grew up, pursued our careers, and moved on with our lives. She's the girl I've loved since I was fifteen. The thing is, she doesn't know it, and I never plan on telling her.

The death of her parents brought us back to our hometown of Sunnyville six years ago. We reminisced and I was her shoulder to cry on. One thing led to another, giving each other a night I will never forget, and the bond that ended our friendship.

Now, another funeral brings me back home, and there she is, with her daughter. Sabrina is everything I want but can't have. I want to talk to her about our awkward night and rectify what we once had.

But just when we get things right with us, complications arise, and outside forces threaten our lives.

REVIEW:

This story is K. Bromberg’s Everyday Hero world, this was my first go not only for this series but for author Michelle Fernandez. This is a steamy, friends to lovers romance that can be read as a stand alone. Characters from the past books are noted but it did not confuse me, just got me more intrigued about their stories.

Distracted follows Sabrina and Spencer, best friends since they were children and who had each others back, even when their games of dares got more intense as they grew up. But after a loss on Sabrina's side brought them together even more, however Spencer doesn't tell Sabrina he is in a relationship, which breaks her heart and she break ties with him. After years apart they are brought together by another tragedy, however this time Spencer is not going to let Sabrina go, especially after he discovers a secret that Sabrina's been holding on to for over 6 years. Sabrina mistakes and her anger I felt was a little over the top, her reasoning for not telling anyone about her secret especially Spencer made me shake my head. Sabrina character was a bit tough for me to connect to compared to Spencer whom, even though he was alpha male, he was so sweet, loving and such a good guy that behind the broken side he just wanted his missing piece which was Sabrina.

Overall I loved the back and forth with getting a peak into Sabrina and Spencer's childhood. The dares that these two did as kid was my favorite parts, it cracked me up to see how far they would go. I loved their bond and their growing fondness for each other from best friends to getting those butterflies in your stomach every time their near each other. They both made mistakes, which ultimate cost them so much time but their bond when near each other after so much time is still there. Michelle does a fantastic job showing the depth of love these two have, its intense, passionate and holy moly hot.

The side characters are wonderful additions, to Spencer's sister who I think will be getting a future story, to Sabrina's adorable daughter who is a page stealer. In the end if you like drama, steamy sexy romance, and some suspense, check out Distracted.

Michelle Fernandez lives in Southern California with her husband and children. When she's not writing, she loves spending time with her family, laughing it up with her 'squad' or simply relaxing with her two pups.

She's always been passionate about reading and impressed by the influence it has on people. Which is why she started writing in the first place. It started as a hobby. One chapter turned into ten, then a novel was born.

Till I Found You is her first book. She writes Contemporary Romance with a dash of suspense. The sassy heroine and the gentleman hero are who she loves to write about. It's all about the swoony, seductive and suspense when it comes to her novels and making up worlds and characters for readers to utterly fall in love with, is the most rewarding for her.

BLURB:

The only thing worse than living in a town where everyone hates you is having to work for the man who broke your heart. 

Redemption, Tennessee held nothing but painful memories that Lark Ashton had no desire to rehash. After the only man she’s ever loved crushed her soul and spirit, and all her friends turned their backs on her, she swore to herself she’d never go back. But when her aunt calls, asking a favor she can’t possibly refuse, Lark finds herself public enemy number one . . . again

Clay Morrison has spent seven years trying to convince himself he’s no longer in love with Lark Ashton. But when the woman he thinks betrayed him and his family returns, she brings with her a whole slew of feelings he’s worked hard to ignore.Now he can’t get the bane of his existence out of his head.

She’s in desperate need of a job. He can’t resist the chance to have her at his mercy.

And they’re both about to discover what happens when the most intense passion they’ve ever felt is with a person they hate.

REVIEW:

Another awesome installment to the Redemption series. Book for as the last 3 books brings back the whole gang aka past couples. I love that Prince does this with her series, as well as ties in her other series to this one as well. It makes the world building that much more wonderful.

Guilty Pleasure follows Lark, who has come back home to take care of her sick aunt Sissy. However the moment she sees the sign for her hometown she wants to turn back and next look back. But she will do anything to help her beloved aunt, especially since her cousin and aunts daughter is a real piece of lazy spoiled work. Lark is thrown left to right, dealing with being hated by the whole town. You see Lark left town on a sour note, with lies that she turned in her now ex-boyfriends brother to the cops. Lark hits every bad luck possible while trying to make sure her aunt deals with little so she can rest, but when Lark needs money and jobs a scars, the one person she never thought would help her does. Her ex...Clay.

This story really gutted me, Lark is such a strong and kind person, the things she does to make sure Sissy is taken care of and gets her home life sorted out shows how big her heart is. She deals with people shunning her left and right, not wanting her in their stores, grocery shopping or literally walking in the street. It broke my heart, people in the town were so cruel. I pretty much hated everyone in town for her. Luckily this girl is tough, she holds back the tears and when luck comes to her in her ex, she takes hold of it only for her aunt.

Clay is an alpha male to the max, he ticked me off quite a few times in the sense that he blamed her for something his brother should of taken responsibility for. Her turned everyone against her and it hurt to read how she struggled. Thankfully this guy also has a heart and Lark is his biggest weakness no matter what he thinks she did.

The whole story is a lot of what happened in the past, no one knows, especially Lark why the town and her ex think she told on her best friend and Clays brother Callum. The drama from that caused a lot of angst and tension, especially sexual tension between Clay and Lark. These two have the most intense, steamy and holy moly chemistry.

In the end this was a great 4th installment and I can't wait to see who the next couple is going to be!
