Romance in Air – Stacy Claflin

Here’s are 9th featured author today in the Romance is in the Air Giveaway. Stacy Claflin is a USA Today bestselling author who writes about complex women overcoming incredible odds. Whether it’s her Gone trilogy of psychological thrillers, her ongoing Transformed paranormal saga, or her Seaside Hunters sweet romance series, Stacy’s three-dimensional heroines always shine through.

 

Blurb:

She’s guarding a family secret. He’s investigating a murder. Will a second homecoming lead to true love?

Freya Hunter is living the fabulous life. The west-coast girl rakes it in as a fashion model in New York City, but everything changes after she returns home for a quick visit.

The reunion with friends and family in Enchantment Bay is sweet, especially when she hits it off with Nico Valentin, a ruggedly handsome police sergeant. As Nico investigates the death, Freya learns a family secret big enough to turn her world upside down.

Freya is torn between her new life and her hometown — the life she loves vs. the brother who needs her and the sergeant who wants her. When her decision doesn’t go nearly as well as she planned, she wonders if she can help her brother and keep her growing feelings for Nico at bay before they consume her.

Nico put the tickets in his wallet for safekeeping. “Sounds good to me.”

She took his hand and pulled him toward the stores. His pulse raced, but she didn’t seem to think anything of holding his hand.

A few people glanced at them, seeming surprised. Being on the force, he was well-known and he hadn’t been on a single date since moving to Enchantment Bay. And he’d definitely never been out with someone as attractive as Freya.

She stopped in front of a candle place. “You ever been in there?”

Nico held in a snort. “No. The only candle I own is for when the power goes out.”

Freya stared at him for a moment. “Seriously?”

“Just for emergencies.”

“You don’t know what you’re missing. Come on.” She yanked on his arm—she was stronger than she looked—and dragged him inside. An array of aromas hit him all at once. He couldn’t tell one from the other, but he liked the way they blended together.
Almost like the unexpected pairing of him and Freya.

 

 

Blurb:

What do a fifteen-year-old pact, a fake engagement, and a stalker have in common? Audrey Hughes.

Audrey’s ex-boyfriend won’t take ‘no’ for an answer. A master manipulator and a violently selfish man, he’s decided Audrey is his property. And he’s determined to get her back. Forcibly, if necessary.

She flees to the one place she ever found ‘family’—to Enchantment Bay. More precisely, to Logan Hunter.

Logan is a successful attorney and consummate bachelor. His work is his wife, and that’s the only long-term relationship he sees for himself. Until a childhood sweetheart shows up and reminds him of the pact they made years earlier—to get married.

It surprises him that she remembered, stuns him that he’s intrigued, and shocks him to discover her reason for returning. He uses all his influence and connections to protect her, only to be the one who causes her unbearable pain and drives her away.

Can Logan find a way to keep Audrey safe, make things right, and mend both their broken hearts?

Shale glanced around and spoke in a low voice. “You sure your engagement is fake?”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” Logan frowned.

“I saw the way you two kept looking at each other during dinner.”

Logan stood taller. “We have to be convincing.”

“You kissed her twice when I was the only one in here. Twice, and I know it’s fake. Or at least that it’s supposed to be.”

Logan glared at him. “It is.”

“I was looking for signs that it is, but I didn’t see any. I just saw two people acting like they think the other was the best thing ever.”

“We are friends—we genuinely like each other. You’re reading too much into it.”

“Whatever you have to tell yourself.”

 

 

“The combination of mild suspense, sweet romantic moments, and dramatic situations really engages the reader, as the flow of the story is steady and captivating. The characters are portrayed in ways that make them seem real–like true friends, with real strengths and weaknesses. I’m already looking forward to the rest of the series!” –Amazon Reviewer

 

 

Decades after she wrote her first stories on construction paper and years after typing on an inherited green screen computer that weighed half a ton, Stacy Claflin realized her dream of becoming a full-time author. When she’s not busy writing or educating her kids from home, Stacy enjoys watching TV shows like Supernatural, Haven, and Once Upon a Time.

Romance in the Air – Cindy Roland Anderson

 

 

At age twelve, Ashlee Nichols fell in love with her brother’s best friend, Beau Jacobsen. Everyone thought she was cute and that her crush was simply that…a crush. But her young heart had known he was the one, and she had planned on marrying him as soon as she was old enough. Unfortunately, when she confessed her feelings to Beau, he’d laughed, patted her on the head and told her he was flattered. Continue reading

#Starstruck

Yea! I’ve been so excited to share this new book from Sariah Wilson. It’s incredible! I hope you get to read this one, because it will make you swoon, laugh, and tear up. It’s one of the best I’ve read for months! [GIVEAWAY goes until Feb 8th–see end of post for details] Here’s the blurb:

“You’ve done better.”

With one uncharacteristically sassy tweet to her longtime celebrity crush, Zoe Miller’s life turns upside down. Ultrahot A-lister Chase Covington doesn’t just respond to Zoe’s tweet, he does the unthinkable: he messages Zoe directly. Now she must decide between walking away or meeting her crush in person.

Chase knows better than to trust anyone from the Internet, but Zoe’s saucy challenge has totally caught his interest—and her girl-next-door personality is keeping it. He’s been burned enough to know he needs to keep his heart close. But his feelings for Zoe might be a lot more than just an online flirtation. He just has to convince her… Continue reading

The Sidelined Wife

bookpeel*****Janice Moore is the winner of this giveaway*****

January was a good month for books for me. I read so many stellar books I want to share. Today’s feature is by Jennifer Peel, a prolific writer who is one of my writing heroes. Seriously. She writes the perfect romances, in my opinion. Now that I write my own books, I realize every reader has different tastes. Some books I love, others think are meh. Some books that don’t jive with me, other readers think are the bomb.com. It’s just how life is. None of us are the same in our tastes and preferences…and I like the diversity of thought and opinions (unlike some on FB who have to bash anyone who dares think differently than them–ahem…Hitler?)

But to get to my point 🙂 I love Jennifer’s books. She has like 20 or so out there now (I’m too tired to go count right now, but it’s a lot). Another thing I like about Jennifer is she’s just a Continue reading

New Website Look & Blog

Char’s Succulent Thoughts will be more of my author arena to post about book updates, giveaways, & random thoughts.

Joy in the Moments will lean more to book reviewing. At least, that’s what I’m thinking at the moment. We’ll see how things pan out, right?

Package Deal available for Pre-Order

Package Deal-Final (2)Last little tidbit to ring in the New Year is….

Package Deal will release January 10th.

I’m super excited for you to read this second book in the Ruled Out Romances. It was a blast to write, and I really, really love Hudson & Spring in this story. Spring really is an angel. Little Emma’s adorable and annoying (like any good toddler should be). Don’t you love her shoes on the cover?

I hope you’ll enjoy this. If you’re interested in being an early reader in exchange for leaving a review on Amazon, shoot me an email from the contact page and we’ll talk (Ebook only).

Have a Happy New Year!

I’ll talk to you next year.
