Book Review - Seaside Hearts by Melissa Foster 'As usual this is a fun book that I read really quickly--I had to know how it was going to turn out!! I'

This one had me a bit worried that the guy and the girl might not make it! From the first glance they were head over heels about each other. I mean really--she's a shy musician who really hasn't dated much and he has big issues of his own-even so-instant chemistry. She is computer illiterate (but plays the cello in the Boston Symphony Orchestra)-He is a computer geek extraordinaire who has built up a company to rival Google. They meet when she throws her cell phone off the balcony in frustration (I can relate totally) and clocks hims in the head by accident! Plug in an over protection, manipulative and nasty friend of Jamie and you have got problems-big problems!! Luckily the Seaside girls have taken Jessica as one of their own and are teaching her what life and friendship is all about. As usual this is a fun book that I read really quickly--I had to know how it was going to turn out!! I really did get worried there for a while.

Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, and determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his plans.

From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sensual, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the blond beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

I love to hate you and I hate to love you.

Ruby Dixon has always believed that every girl has that one guy...
You know...
The one that she just can't let go of.
The one that broke her heart.
The one that got away.
Every girl has that one guy.
And Ruby just so happens to be locked in a room with hers.

Hi everyone,


Today I'm sharing a bit about my Amber Allure gay paranormal, KILLER IN WOLF'S CLOTHING. It's a fun look at the werewolf legend. Excerpts and reviews are on my site & blog.

I hope you'll check it out!




Killer in Wolf’s Clothing


A super aggressive Alpha male, a serial killer, and a visit to a kinky sex club…What has Larry gotten himself into?


When Larry learns that his boyfriend Greg changes into another man during the full moon, he has a hard time accepting it—until he meets Deke, Greg’s alternate Alpha personality.


Deke doesn’t play nice and has no time for games. He only wants two things—to get laid and to get revenge against the arsonist who murdered his friends. Finally free from Greg’s restraints, Deke is ready for action, and Larry is more than willing to submit to Deke’s needs.


Together, Larry and Deke set out to find the killer. Their hunt takes them to an all-night Alpha sex club where things heat up for the two of them. But when Larry unwittingly falls into the clutches of the murderer, it’s up to Deke—and Greg—to save him before it’s too late.

New cover reveal...

He’s a young doctor with a kind heart…
In a busy London medical clinic, Ben Stein meets a pretty girl in a whole lot of trouble.
She’s faking an asthma attack and begging for help, and he’s determined to find out why.
There are strict codes of conduct that forbid any kind of relationship between a doctor and
his patient – but Ben has missed out on love before, and he’s ready to believe the reward is
worth taking the risk.

She needs his love and protection…
Layla is a shy, pretty, eighteen-year-old, who is owned - body and soul - by a London
crime ring. She barely has the courage to utter two words when she first meets Ben; but
those words draw him to her like a moth to a flame. She’s from a dangerous part of town
where life is a roller-coaster of highs and lows and everything has its price. She’s aching
for love and longs to get close, but she’s never let anyone get THIS close to her before...
