Blog Tour: Wyoming Winter

There's something about those Wyoming men... New York Times bestselling author Diana Palmer returns to the Cowboy State with a brand-new tale of desire and deception

Cultivating his vast Wyoming ranch is all security expert J. C. Calhoun wants. His land is the only thing the betrayed rancher can trust in after discovering his fiancee was pregnant by another man. But all J.C. holds dear becomes compromised when a lost little girl leads him to Colie Jackson, the woman who destroyed his life.


Colie stops at nothing to protect the people she loves. Years ago she left J.C. for his own good. Now, for the sake of her daughter, she must depend on a hard-hearted man who won't forgive her. As a band of ruthless criminals tracks their every move through the frozen Wyoming winter, Colie and J.C. will be forced to confront the lies that separated them--and the startling truth that will bind them forever...

Wyoming Winter takes readers back to the cowboy state where the men are as fierce as they are loving. Diana Palmer's seventh Wyoming Men novel tells the story of J.C. Calhoun, Ren Colter's head of security, and the innocent young woman that melts his hardened heart. Colie Jackson has been in love with J.C. for as long as she can remember. Even though he's much older and has a reputation around town, she doesn't hesitate when he offers to take her on a date.

There are many factors moving against their blossoming relationship. For instance, Colie had a conservative upbringing while J.C. has traveled the world and lives a modern lifestyle. Colie's father is a minister and disapproves of the relationship. Only time and life experience will determine if these two will ever find a happy ending.

What I love about the few Diana Palmer stories I've read is that they begin with something in the character's lives that they have to overcome whether it's a problem of their own making or outside influences. This story has that special little something that Diana Palmer adds to her stories to draw you in and make you feel something for the main characters. If they make a mistake you hope they can redeem themselves or if they get hurt you want to jump in and make it all better. The characters are laid bare for readers to truly see who they are and what they desire, which makes it easy to keep reading to see how they resolve their issues. The story moves at a fast pace and I'm amazed at how Colie and J. C. are transformed by the end. If you loved the previous book, Wyoming Brave, you'll love Wyoming Winter even more so!

The Wyoming Men series is perfect for fans of Linda Lael Miller and Maisey Yates. Also, if you haven't read any of the previous stories, jump on it. You don't want to miss out on these heartwarming romances!

Blog Tour: Deal Breaker


Nixie Rowland is having a bad day. Rushing home to drown her sorrows in ice cream and reality television, she decides to take a shortcut to the subway where things take a turn for the worst. But Nixie’s bad luck doesn’t end there—the white knight who comes to her rescue is none other than the Dark Knight of Wall Street, a cocky Manhattan mogul whose ego barely fits inside his penthouse. To her horror, Nixie discovers the sizzling attraction between them is off the charts, and rising fast. Spending the night in his bed does nothing to lower the heat… And everything to set her heart on fire.

Nash Knight doesn’t have room in his life, or his heart, for anything beyond one-night stands or casual flings. And he certainly doesn’t make a habit of rescuing damsels in distress. Except that this particular damsel slips beneath his armor, the vulnerability she covers with a false show of bravado hitting him somewhere deep. Nixie is everything he never wanted… And exactly what he needs.


With Nixie on the run from a controlling ex, and Nash trying to salvage a business deal at risk because his conquests in the bedroom are overshadowing his wins in the boardroom, there’s one simple solution for them both: a marriage in name only. But when lust becomes love, will their untamed emotions be a deal breaker?

Billionaire Bosses #2

Out of all the stories about penthouse players and young billionaire entrepreneurs, Deal Breaker has been the most interesting. In the second Billionaire Bosses novel, Tara Leigh brings two lovers together by the connection of tragedy and the hope of happily ever after.

Nixie is on the run from her ex-boyfriend who planned to marry her for the money she'll receive when she turns 25. Nash is a hardworking mogul who's hobbies are work, work, and women. The two are in different places in their lives. Where Nixie plans on putting down roots, Nash does everything in his power to avoid a committed relationship, even when it comes to the mother of his adored niece and nephew.

The story is crafted excellently. I was intrigued by the way the two characters were brought together. They both suffered tragic losses that affect their actions in the present, yet Nixie and Nash work their way toward a happy future. I did expect there to be a little more drama to shake the emotional aspect of the plot. There is some drama that stems from Nash's ex, but it seemed mechanical as though it was only added to thicken the plot. I didn't really get engaged in that part of the story. I was more focused on how the marriage of convenience trope would play out in the story. Tara Leigh does a marvelous job of throwing that into the story to provide the ultimate challenge for Nixie and Nash.

Overall, Deal Breaker is a sizzling romance, both cozy and steamy that will keep you wrapped up until the end rooting for Nixie and Nash.

A Refreshing Addition to Romance

A groomsman and his last-minute guest are about to discover if a fake date can go the distance in a fun and flirty debut novel.

Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn't normally do. But there's something about Drew Nichols that's too hard to resist.

On the eve of his ex's wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend...

After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she's the mayor's chief of staff. Too bad they can't stop thinking about the other...

They're just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century--or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want...
The Wedding Date

Pub Date: 2/6/18

Genre: Romance

This is the story I've been looking for! Jasmine Guillory sets the tone for romantic comedies in the upcoming year. The Wedding Date takes readers from an impromptu meeting in a stuck elevator to a whirlwind romance across the state of California.

Alexa Monroe finds herself accepting a date with gorgeous Drew Nichols after getting stuck in an elevator with him. She's going to be his buffer against the awkwardness of attending his ex-girlfriend and friend's wedding. With some trepidation on both sides, Alexa agrees to be Drew's fake girlfriend for the night. As it turns out, the two have an undeniable chemistry that extends well beyond the wedding. Their busy schedules don't keep them from spending the weekends with each other even though they live an hour from each other by flight.

I'm not usually a fan of the fake date/fake girlfriend trope, but this setup was too intriguing to pass up. Drew has a type: tall, skinny, and blonde. Alexa is the complete opposite but her skin tone and curvy figure hardly matter to Drew as he's so attracted to her carefree laugh. I love that neither of them have a second thought about spending time with someone outside of their race. Even so, Guillory doesn't ignore the differences between their cultural backgrounds. Their relationship was not without its drama and setbacks, but Guillory keeps it realistic. The story moves at a steady clip giving you a chance to get to know the characters below the surface.

The Wedding Date is a refreshing addition to the romance genre. You will love the fun and flirty vibe throughout the story and when it ends you'll be pining for more!

Geek Girls Always Prevail

Mia Connors finally has this #adulting thing under control. She's set to launch a massive project at work, her social calendar is filling up and, if you can believe it, she might finally get the guy. But when one of her grandparents' close friends is discovered floating in the lake—D-E-A-D—all she's after is justice. And there's only one person who can make that happen.

Deputy US Marshal Jake Archer is working undercover when he gets the call about a murder in Horseshoe Falls. The vic may have been close with Mia's family, but it doesn't take long for Jake to discover that he had far more enemies than friends.



Horseshoe Falls is abuzz with news of the murder, and Mia's determined to get to the bottom of things, despite Jake's direct order to stand back. Jake didn't open his heart to the possibility of a future with someone just to let her get herself killed. Now they have to contain the panic within Horseshoe Falls, apprehend the fugitive and figure out how to salvage their relationship—before Mia finds herself in the crosshairs.

The Geek Girls Mysteries comes to a close with A Geek Girl's Guide to Justice. Julie Anne Lindsey delivers a mystery with closure written on every page.

Mia's twin sister is expecting, her mom is writing a book about their quirky family, and Mia rescued a dead man from a lake in Horseshoe Falls. This story is packed full of drama and another investigation for Mia to meddle in. I would have loved for their romance to be more intense. I couldn't believe they were both awkward throughout the entire series. Thankfully, I picked up this series for the amateur sleuthing, not the romance.

This story neatly wraps up the lives of the characters leaving just enough room an average mystery to unfold. It wasn't as explosive as I would have liked for the end of a series, but it kept me hooked to the end. I definitely recommend this cozy mystery series to gamers and techies!

Geek Girls Have Heart

It's been three months since Jake Archer rolled into town, accused Mia Connors of murder and stole her heart. She hasn't heard from him since. So when a man collapses at the fall Renaissance Faire, she's surprised to see the US marshal arrive on scene. And shocked when he points the finger at her—again. Mia would sooner be able to resurrect the poor fellow than poison him.

Jake Archer's career has been rising fast, but it's about to come to a crashing halt. The Ren-Faire victim was in protective custody—Jake's custody—and they were painfully close to nabbing a major crime boss. If Jake doesn't solve the murder soon, he'll be fetching donuts instead of protecting his nation. A difficult enough task without the alluring Mia Connors in the way.

Working with Jake to catch the killer might push Mia into crazy-cat-lady territory. But with a murderer on the loose—and Mia's reputation on the line—they'll have to work fast to find the killer before the killer finds them.

Julie Anne Lindsey returns with her geeky sleuth, Mia Connors, in A Geek Girl's Guide to Arsenic. The Renaissance Faire is in full swing but comes to a temporary halt when a man dies suddenly. The murder weapon, poison. As the last person to speak with the victim after giving him a drink of wassail and a sample of Guinivere's Golden Beauty, Mia is once again fingered as a suspect. Only this time her grandmother's company also takes a hit.

In order to keep business coming in and save the company's reputation, Mia decides to situate herself into the investigation. Newly appointed US Marshal Jake Archer returns to town to solve the mystery of who killed the man in his custody and to keep Mia out of the line of fire. As the killer remains elusive Mia and Jake find themselves stepping into the new territory of romance. The connection between them is begging to be explored, but we only get a little taste in this installment.

This is a wonderful follow-up to A Geek Girl's Guide to Murder. Lindsey reminds us that Mia is a normal human affected by traumatic experiences. She struggles to deal with her previous experience with a murderer, but family comes first. She's determined to clear their name and bring her world back to some semblance of normal. Still no better at the art of reading social cues, Mia is unclear where she stands with Jake. Of course, we readers know where this is headed but the happily ever after is still way off.

Featuring quirky characters and die-hard cosplayers A Geek Girl's Guide to Arsenic is perfect for fans of Cathy Yardley's Fandom Hearts series!

Verdict: Geek Girls and Murder Don't Mix

Fatal Error

IT manager Mia Connors is up to her tortoiseshell glasses in technical drama when a glitch in the Horseshoe Falls email system disrupts security and sends errant messages to residents of the gated community. Mia doesn't have time to hunt down a computer hacker. Her best friend has disappeared, and she finds another of her friends murdered—in her office. Then the hunky new head of Horseshoe Falls security identifies Mia as the prime suspect.

Eager to clear her name, Mia moves into action to locate her missing buddy and find out who killed their friend. But her quick tongue gets her into trouble with more than the new head of security. When Mia begins receiving threats, the killer makes it clear that he's closer than she ever imagined.

With the flair of Joelle Charbonneau and the fandom geekiness of Cathy Yardley, Geek Girls Guide to Murder proves to be a well-rounded read. Julie Anne Lindsey touches the heart of the girl who owns her quirks and manages to save the day despite her social anxiety. If that doesn't kick butt, what does?

This hilarious and modern cozy mystery series is the perfect read for a chilly fall weekend. Though you might be able to finger the culprit early on, like immediately, the fun is in the hoops Mia jumps through to find answers. Someone has tampered with the Horseshoe Falls email system and killed Mia's best friend, Baxter. The new head of security, Jake Archer, believes she's part of some elaborate illegal scheme and his brother Dan, the homicide detective, focuses his sights on her. Mia is determined to find the real person responsible for Baxter's death while tracking down her other bestie, Nate. As the net of suspicion is cast over the clubhouse employees the killer gets feisty and threatens Mia.

A Geek Girl's Guide to Murder follows this sassy gamer girl as she balances life as the face of her grandmother's natural skincare company, head of IT, and full-time geek. Thankfully she has the support of her overprotective family to keep pushing forward. I loved following Mia through this mystery because every chapter unveils a part of her personality and it pulled me in further. She's not at all what she first seems but throughout the story's entirety, she proves her strength. The Geek Girl Mysteries continue in the next Geek Girl's Guide to Arsenic.
