Next Older Series Catch-Up

Posted April 27, 2021 by Marsha in 2021 Beat the Backlist Challenge, Discussion / 0 Comments

If you’re anything like me then your TBR pile is unbelievably large and completely unintentional.  I have complete series (that were released over years) on my Kindle, purchased already, that I simply have not gotten around to reading.  Now, that’s fine for the author and the publishing house, they got their money from me 🙂 … but I haven’t gotten the pleasure of that money spent yet.  Just sayin’ – it’s time for those books to get themselves read so I can be up-to-date when the newest release shows up and begs to come live on my Kindle.

I’m caught up on Anna J. Stewart’s Butterfly Harbor series (Oh, how I loved that one – the reviews are on the blog).  I have the title released this year to get the review up for and then wait for the next release.  So, one series down from that TBR tower.

Now, I’m going to start on Christine Rimmer’s The Bravos of Valentine Bay series.  This one also has endured for years now, and every book that is out in the series (including the newest) is on my Kindle… binge-read ahead!  (this is also going to count for my 2021 Beat the Backlist Reading Challenge so Yay! for that) —BtB can be found here—  🙂

Just a reminder — don’t forget those books on your e-readers or your bookshelves.  They might not be the newest release, but they are a brand new reading experience for you.  So, don’t forget your books, they get lonely.  *sad book’s face*

Reckless Curves by Bronwen Evans

Posted May 22, 2020 by Marsha in Contemporary Romance, Series / 0 Comments

Thomas (Tom) Lorde’s morning couldn’t get any worse. One call changes everything. Apparently he’s a dad. He should be on the phone with his lawyer. He wouldn’t put it past a woman—any woman—to lie to get at his hard-earned money. His mother trapped his father into marriage and then left them both for deeper pockets. But when the news is delivered from between the sweet lips of Kendra Black, his best friend’s out of bounds little sister, and his one major ‘fucking’ mistake, he knows he’s screwed and that she’s not lying.

Kendra Black knew contacting Tom would be a mistake. Three years ago, he’d made it very clear he had no feelings for her. He slept with her and then flew to Europe without a backward glance. However, he left more than a broken heart behind. He might not want her, but now that’s he’s back in California, her son, their son, Connor (Con) Black, deserves to know his father. What she hadn’t expected was Tom’s old-fashioned lap of honor. He wants to marry her. Why couldn’t he simply be a weekend dad like her father? She can’t deny the physical attraction is still there. He might be okay with a marriage based on hot, raw, animalistic sex and only sex, but she wants more. She deserves a man who loves her and she refuses to wave the checkered flag until he gives her his heart.
