New Series Cover Reveal - Catching Cassidy, Book 1 of the brand new Harborside Nights Series by +Melissa Foster  available to Pre-order Now !

http://beckvalleybooks.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/new-series-cover-reve...



Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to spread his parents’ ashes and to try to figure out his next step.

Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands—but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home—even if her jealous boyfriend is giving her hell for it. But he doesn’t have anything to be jealous of…or does he?

It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.

Our Beck Valley Books review of fun romance Chasing Charlie by Kathy Carmichael 'I found myself smiling and chuckling throughout'

How far would you go to make sure your parents lived the life they really wanted? That's the deliberation of Davis, a wannabe cowboy who has always dreamt of owning his own ranch but had to put that all on hold since he had to take over his fathers business when he died. Not only that Davis is the handsome bachelor in town who could have his pick of any lady, happy as he is his mother's isn't. Her only dream is to see her son married, she has even turned down moving to Tokyo with the love of her own life as she cannot leave Davis until he is settled. What is he to do? Davis and his father in law to be, Jim, come up with a plan to find a fiance to show to his mother until she finally agrees to live her own life and be happy.

Charlie is one of the town librarians who Davis regularly sees as he continues to study up on his dream ranch, not his usual type but his mother would like her, although there is something about her..... Charlie encouraged by her roommate to start being more daring in life and take the odd risk accepts to the challenge of being the pretend finance, after all there's no possible chance anything else would happen as she detests cowboys. Simple enough plan, but will it work out the way they planned or will things take a romantic turn?

This was a real quick read, full of fun I found myself smiling and chuckling throughout. I loved the predicaments they found themselves in, their constant teasing of each other and wondering what would happen next in the storyline. As I've mentioned before romance isn't my first choice in reading but this surprised me and I actually found myself loving the read, there is a charm to this pair that seems to take hold of you.

A nice entertaining read that I really enjoyed, looking forward to book 2 and catching up with everyone yeehaw!!

5***** for Whole Lotta Love by Rachelle Ayala 'romance, a hint of mystery and a few twists and turns, a must read' reviews Life as Leels

"I couldn’t put this book down! I stayed up until 2:30am this morning reading because I couldn’t put it down, and when I woke up, I grabbed the book to finish reading it.

Dylan is… wow! I love the bad boy types, and while he turned out to be nothing that I expected, he definitely has my heart.

Little Miss Carina reminds me of a younger me – all business, no fun.
While this book is mostly a romance story, there is a hint of mystery in it – a few twists and turns as to what is really going on – and definitely drama.

Unless you are a man that really likes romance, I don’t forsee a man enjoying this read, but I don’t know any woman who would not enjoy this book!"

BRAND NEW Fated for Love by Melissa Foster 'a fun adventure with a ton of laughs, a lot of romance' reviews Family, Love and Other Stuff
Book #8 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #16


"Well, just damn. I’d love to climb into Melissa Foster’s mind and see what other sexy hunks she has hiding in there.  This is another winner in the Love in Bloom Series.

Fated for Love by Melissa Foster is the love story of Callie Barnes and Wes Braden. Yes, another Braden. This one is a super hot and sexy cowboy. I totally swooned over Wes and his love of the outdoors. Callie is definitely a perfect fit for him even though she is definitely not the outdoorsy type. Heights? Afraid of them. Horses? Yep, she’s not a fan. Will Wes and Callie find common ground and overcome their obstacles?

Callie has the funniest friends and I love that they push Callie beyond what she thinks are her limits. As for Wes (*swoon*) he has a love of family and a healthy romantic side. I found myself drawn to the characters and Ms. Foster had me hanging on every word and turning the pages as quickly as I could just so I could find out what happened next.

This is a fun adventure with a ton of laughs, a lot of romance, and a pair of kindred spirits. I cannot wait to see what she has up her sleeve next (let me suggest more sexy hunks?). As with all books in this series, Fated for Love is a complete stand-alone novel. Although, I would suggest reading the other books in this series just because there is always a hot, sexy hero. "

Seacat John McCall labels the attack on the Sea-anan Empire as a nightmare. He escapes the enemy’s invasion, only to find himself stranded on a distant planet called Surreal. Tormented by thoughts of his family being massacred or captured by the enemy, he focuses on returning to aid them until he experiences a mind-boggling kiss that can only come from the one he is meant to share his life with. To ease the terror he feels for his family, John seeks the identity of his secret admirer. He quickly learns the true meaning of nightmare when he discovers his soul mate is of “the mist.”

Jasira Eversole is drawn to the powerfully built outlander sitting at the king’s table. Unable to resist the need to see him again, she enters the warrior’s room while he sleeps. John’s rugged good looks and chiseled body compel Jasira to reach out and touch him. Being of the mist, Jasira knows she will not be able to feel John, but she cannot resist his pull. The richness of John’s hair, the firmness of his muscles, and the clean scent of his skin all take Jasira off guard. She swiftly realizes John is her intended mate. Now, Jasira must somehow convince the young warrior that they are two halves of one soul without chasing him off Surreal, leaving her to a lonely existence as mist.

Many readers enjoy Star Wars-esque stories of conflict on faraway planets, while other readers tend to stick to epic romances. Few authors have managed to combine the two genres in such a seamless way as Jessica A. Kong has in her Sea-anan Saga. She has created a highly complex story with fully developed characters, and the themes explored here are inarguably adult, yet the reading level required is no more than eighth grade. A Forgotten Kitten zips along at just the right pace, allowing the reader to digest the complexity of the plot and interrelation between the characters without having to think too hard.

 

The story revolves around Sev, a young, handsome prince and member of a royal family who rises to become king of the Oceanan race. Sev is raised in the midst of a vicious family feud, but all seems worth it when his adoptive aunt gives birth to a beautiful little girl whom Sev falls instantly and irrevocably in love with. But when Sev’s planet collides with its own sun and collapses, he must bear the loss of his entire family, including his love as well as any memory of her.

 

Areo, the heroine of the story, is that little girl that Sev fell for during his childhood. She is a human-feline hybrid who has grown to hate the royal family that her soul mate hails from. She undergoes a destructive event and space travel episode similar to Sev’s, and it is not too long before she has settled her new planet and with her fellow half-bloods, created a strong, thriving society. When she is brutally attacked by Daehog, everyone in her empire is scattered throughout the universe. Where does she land but the planet that Sev is currently occupying.

 

What follows is a continually building conflict interlaced with one of the most fervently passionate love stories seen in these kinds of novels. Kong chooses not just to write about space travel, or war, or love, or family, or even racism; instead, she chooses to combine all of these classic literary themes into one amazing story. The result is a mysterious and ultimately deeply satisfying story that only leads to the craving for more from this gifted and astoundingly creative writer.

In the first book of the Sea-anan Saga, A Lost Kitten, readers meet John McCall. The second book, A Forgotten Kitten, features Areo McCall. Both of these intriguing protagonists are children of an intergalactic marriage. Now, fans of the saga will be thrilled to learn the story of how their parents get together.

 

A Seacat’s Love takes readers back in time to planet Earth, where Rick McCall is committed to living the lonely life of a government spy after losing his wife and unborn daughter due to his own arrogance and poor decisions.

 

Leonora, one of the top scientists on the planet of Oceana and a high-ranking Seacat Warrior, is a humanoid feline who has come to Earth to study human evolution and find similarities between earthlings and oceanans. But her expedition’s camp is stormed by the human army.

 

Rick and Leonora first encounter each other at a secret military lab during the cat woman’s attempt to escape her captors. When she collides with Rick in a corridor, Leonora begs for his help, claiming that the government has been experimenting on her, and one look into the frightened feline’s pale-blue eyes is enough to stir the hardened spy’s heart. For Leonora, the spark ignites in her chest after Rick dares to defy his government and his own commanding officer to aid her and her colleague Tigif. She recognizes the nobility in this selfless act of helping strangers—aliens from another world, no less!

 

Now committed to helping Leonora and Tigif remain safely out of the clutches of a wrongful government and find a way back to their home planet, Rick faces many difficult choices—but he doesn’t want to repeat the past and make another devastatingly wrong decision. His relationship with Leonora grows in fits and starts, constantly undermined by Tigif’s devious plots, and Leonora is threatened by Tigif’s increasingly forceful advances. As they avoid a massive government dragnet, fight off dangerous feline fevers, and try to retrieve the aliens’ ship, heated emotions of jealousy, distrust, and resentment that arise in the confusion put their very lives in jeopardy.

 

Author Jessica Kong seamlessly blends multiple themes into her Sea-anan Saga and Oceanan Trilogy books, including loyalty, racism, family, and love. In A Seacat’s Love, the theme of multiracial relationships is particularly prominent, where the difference in race between the two protagonists is exaggerated to galactic proportions. As in all of the volumes in the series, this book shows how fundamentally similar we all really are when it comes to our basic needs, desires, and even cultures.

"CHASING CHARLIE by Kathy Carmichael is a perfectly light, refreshing read for summer. It’s great for an afternoon of reading on the beach or by the pool. I really enjoyed this fun, charming romance about Charlie and Davis. Charlie is a librarian in a Texas town who has fallen into a routine and is bored with the men she dates. She has practically resigned herself to settling into a “librarian” lifestyle. Her roommate advises her to step outside the box and live a little larger. Charlie accepts the advice and starts living larger with the purchase of a shape hugging, red dress that is very atypical for a librarian. The dress transforms Charlie into a knock-out and draws the attention of her most handsome library patron, Davis.

Davis, an accomplished businessman, frequents the library to research cowboys and ranching. He’s ready to allow someone else to manage the family business so that he can pursue his dream of becoming a cowboy. Also, Davis would love for his widowed mother to accept the marriage proposal from her long-time companion who will be leaving the country soon. He knows his mother will never agree to the proposal and leave the country until she sees that Davis is settled. Davis devises a plan to find a temporary fiance’ to show his mother that he is settled so that she can pursue her happiness. When Davis spots Charlie in the red dress, he knows she will be perfect for his scheme.

Charlie reluctantly agrees to Davis’s plan and the two embark on a humorously staged romance that quickly becomes not such a farce after all! Problems abound, however, with Davis’s reputation as a handsome, little-black-book owning, bachelor. Also, Charlie has a very strong dislike of cowboys. Throw Charlie’s two over-protective brothers into the mix, and the combination makes a very good story.

CHASING CHARLIE is the first book I’ve ready by Kathy Carmichael and it definitely won’t be the last. Luckily, this is only the first of her Texas Two-Step Series. I’m looking forward to more delightfully refreshing romantic reads by Carmichael." reviews My Book Addiction and More
