Excerpt:
Copyright© 2018 Waiting for You
Kate McBrien

“Okay, once more from the top.” John counted off before playing the introduction to a new song.
Justin counted the beats in his head and looked up from his guitar. They were rehearsing in the legendary Abbey Road Studios. It was a spacious studio with honey-colored hardwood floors set in a herringbone pattern, with 
upholstered walls covered in reds and golds. 
After a few bars of the acoustic guitar and piano, Justin sang a song he wrote for Lucy. Inspired by a dream he had 
after leaving California, it was the most romantic song he had ever written.
He lost himself in the music while playing his guitar and singing. He and Lucy watched a sunset turn into a deep indigo night sky as he shared his feelings for her. He had this dream the day after he left California and it had shaken him to his core. Butunlike his earlier dreams of violence and the need to protect her from harm, this dream was more realistic than any of the others. 
Justin closed his eyes, focusing on the lyrics about holding Lucy in his arms. His dreams had always been highly realistic, but this recent dream was more like a memory. It stimulated all his senses. He could not only feel Lucy in his arms, he heard the sound of male voices singing in the background and the sounds of a city below, as if they were on top of a building somewhere. The air was warm and full of exotic scents that he couldn’tidentify. He shuddered as this familiarity washed over him. It was impossible. He had never shared a night like that with Lucy. As the song ended, he was exhausted and miserable.
“That was marvelous,” Graham said from the recording booth. “Let’s wrap it up for tonight. I’m feeling generous, so let me take everyone to the pub.” It was no surprise Graham was in a great mood tonight. He didn’t like the scandal that surrounded Justin, but he was delighted with the publicity that created renewed interest in Indigo. Tickets for the three concerts had sold out, and Indigo’s back catalog was selling well.
“Excellent.” John stood up from the piano and closed the fallboard over the keys. “I’m completely knackered. I could use a pint or two.”
Justin remained on his stool, pulling the guitar strap from around his shoulder.
“Are you all right?” John asked, gathering up his sheet music and placing it in a carrier bag.
“Yeah,” Justin muttered, rubbing his eyes.
Indigo’s other band members, Colin, Mike, and Liam, were gathered in the recording booth listening to the playback. Justin could just make out the song’s melody as it came through the slightly open door.
John frowned. “You looked like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Do you believe in soulmates?

A shy art historian. A sexy rock star. A mysterious medieval cross that holds a secret.

Lucy Bianchi has a plan: finish her PhD in art history and land a coveted job at a prestigious Los Angeles museum. Then—maybe—she’ll find time to start dating. Her controlled and predictable world begins to unravel when she chases a runaway dog on the beach and meets a gorgeous stranger.

Justin Hamilton is the charismatic lead singer of the British band Indigo. Years of touring and partying have won him notoriety, and he can have any woman he wants, but who he really wants doesn’t seem to exist.

Until now.

From their first look—their first touch—Justin and Lucy have a connection that defies logic and deepens their desire for each other. When they see the Varangian Cross at a museum exhibit, they’re flooded with inexplicable shared memories that draw them even closer together.


Justin has to return to London just as a salacious scandal explodes that could tear them apart. Lucy must choose 
between the safe life she’s cultivated, or go to Justin and discover a never-ending love.

Discovering You is the first book of a contemporary romance trilogy.

Blog Tour Spotlight—The Royal Runaway by Lindsay Emory


THE ROYAL RUNAWAY
By Lindsay Emory

On sale October 9, 2018!

Book description
Princess Theodora Isabella Victoria of Drieden of the Royal House Laurent is so over this princess thing.

After her fiancé jilted her on their wedding day, she’s finally back home after spending four months in exile—aka it’s back to press conferences, public appearances, and putting on a show for the Driedish nation as the perfect princess they expect her to be. But Thea’s sick of duty. After all, that’s what got her into this mess in the first place.

So when she sneaks out of the palace and meets a sexy Scot named Nick in a local bar, she relishes the chance to be a normal woman for a change. But just as she thinks she’s found her Prince Charming for the night, he reveals his intentions are less than honorable: he’s the brother of her former fiancé, a British spy, and he’s not above blackmail. As Thea reluctantly joins forces with Nick to find out what happened the day her fiancé disappeared, together they discover a secret that could destroy a centuries-old monarchy and change life as they know it.

Funny, fast-paced, and full of more twists and turns than the castle Thea lives in, The Royal Runaway is a fresh romantic comedy that will leave you cheering for the modern-day royal who chucks the rulebook aside to create her own happily-ever-after.

Release Blitz feat Review + Giveaway:
The Fall Before Flight by L.M Halloran!!




Title: The Fall Before Flight
Author: L.M. Halloran
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 11, 2018



Blurb

I didn’t try to kill myself. It was an accident. 
No, more than that — a natural disaster. 
Fate’s fickle lightning strike.

No one believes me.

I can't blame them, really. 
There’s something wrong with me. 
I'm incapable of emotions that come naturally 
to others. Fear, compassion, love...

I might be a sociopath.

Everyone thinks I’m beyond help. 
Everyone but Dr. Leo Chastain. 
One of us is going to break the other...

Care to place a bet? 


My Review:

It's not my first rodeo and if there's one thing I can expect from an L.M Halloran book, it's complex characters and a riveting story. And boy, does she deliver! 

This book touches on the intricacies of the human brain where Amelia is concerned, and I truly enjoyed the slow unravel of it all. She's the type of person who considers herself to be “broken" as she doesn't act (or react) the way others do, and every chapter peeled back another one of her layers. Her story broke my heart and her journey toward finding herself helped stitch it back together. 

Leo was a pleasant surprise and I enjoyed watching his interactions with Amelia. Every time I thought I had him figured out I was proven wrong. Their chemistry was undeniable and their coming together was hotter than hell. I appreciated that it was a slow burn type of romance because it made their situation even more real. 

There’s so much I want to say about this book, but I don’t want to give anything away. Let’s just say The Fall Before Flight is the kind of story I covet the most. The characters are flawed, the situations are real, the chemistry is off the charts, and the drama is most definitely there. 

If you’re looking for a book that you can devour in one sitting, then I highly recommend picking up a copy today.

Re-Read Book Tour Review—You Belong To Me by Karen Rose


Publisher: 
Published:
Genre:
Source: Finished Copy
Rating:




A Baltimore detective and a medical examiner must work together when the witnesses of a long-ago crime become the victims of a deranged killer in this gripping romantic suspense novel.

Baltimore city Homicide Detective JD Fitzpatrick has seen a lot of horrific violence, both as a cop and during his deployment in Afghanistan, but nothing like the trail of tortured bodies that are turning up throughout the city. He’s up against a brutal killer with a very personal vendetta. And now JD is beginning to suspect that his medical examiner may be shielding some crucial evidence linked to the case.
 
Medical Examiner Dr. Lucy Trask is intrigued by JD’s compassion, but she isn’t about to mix work with pleasure. Not while there’s a ruthless killer on the loose. And definitely not while she’s keeping a dark secret that could connect her to these vicious killings—and put her next on the killer’s hit list...


Review-
You Belong to Me has all the classic love I have for anything romantic suspense. I’m actually kicking myself in the foot for waiting so long to read this author. Her books are both engaging and lovely. The characters are ones that I cared a lot about. 

Lucy and J.D. are HOT! There’s instant attraction but the two remain professional when they meet—Lucy is a medical examiner and J.D. is a homicide detective. A match made in heaven really. 

The opening scene was truly what set everything off. It made me want to know more and in turn I flew through the book. It’s long, so be prepared.the suspense and mystery was what I wanted to get to the bottom of and it didn’t disappoint. For those looking for an interesting yet totally worth it romantic suspense novel, this is it. I can’t recommend enough!
