Author Geri Krotow shares The Bayou Bachelors Series #giveaway

Bare Devotion
The Bayou Bachelors #2
by Geri Krotow
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 9/11/2018
Sweet and sultry, hot and wild…that’s desire, Louisiana-style. And
there’s no one better to explore it with than one of the Bayou
Returning to her flooded New Orleans home to face Henry Boudreaux,
the man she jilted at the altar, is the hardest thing attorney Sonja Bosco
has ever done—even before she discovers she’s pregnant. Sonja backed out
of the marriage for Henry’s sake. He wants to be part of his
father’s law firm, and his parents will never approve of an
interracial marriage. Better to bruise his heart than ruin his life.

Henry can’t forgive Sonja, and doubts that he can trust her again. But learning
that they’re going to be parents means there’s no avoiding each other.
Springtime on the bayou is already steamy enough…now they’re
living in the same small space while their damaged house is repaired.
And with each passing day they’re getting a little more honest. A
lot more real. And realizing that nothing—not even New Orleans at
Mardi Gras—glows brighter than the desire they’re trying to deny…
Fully Dressed
The Bayou Bachelors #1
There’s nowhere hotter than the South, especially with three men who know how
to make the good times roll. But one of the Bayou Bachelors is about
to meet his match…
New York City stylist Poppy Kaminsky knows that image is everything,
which is why she’s so devastated when hers is trashed on social
media—after a very public meltdown over her cheating fiancé. Her
best friend’s New Orleans society wedding gives her the chance hide
out and lick her wounds…
Brandon Boudreaux is in no mood to party. His multi-million dollar sailboat
business is in danger of sinking thanks to his partner’s sudden
disappearance—with the company’s funds. And when he rolls up to
his estranged brother’s pre-wedding bash in an airboat, a
cold-as-ice friend of the bride looks at him like he’s so much
swamp trash.
The last person Poppy should get involved with is the bad boy of the
Boudreaux family. But they have more in common than she could ever
imagine—and the steamy, sultry New Orleans nights are about to show
her how fun letting loose can be…
New Orleans serves as a strong supporting character in Fully
as Krotow gives an inside view on the sights, sounds, and tastes of the
bayou.” —RT Book Reviews

Book Review: Twisted Gift by Jessi Elliott

Title: Twisted Gift

Author: Jessi Elliott

Publication Date: September 21, 2018

Genre: Romance

Rating: 5 Stars=Non-Stop Page Turner

Purchase at

Aurora and Tristan are back in book two of the Twisted series, Twisted Gift. Aurora finally learned how she is connected with the fae and has to step up to lead the light fae. Tristan agrees they should bring light and dark fae together especially since there is something killing off fae and making it look as if they are killing each other. It has been working until Aurora is taken and this is where the twist begins.

I enjoyed book one in the series but Twisted Gift was more entertaining, the storyline more dramatic, which had me bringing out the tissues. This book had unsuspected twists as well as reveals, but you have to read the book to see what I’m talking about.

The author does a wonderful job building the romance between Aurora and Tristan. It was more developed and it was nice to see it grow. I also like that Skylar shared a different side of herself, mainly her take-charge attitude and the little glimmer of caring about Aurora. There was also a hint of a love triangle but I’m glad the author didn’t go that route. This story is great the way it is and I’m satisfied with the ending.

Spotlight Wednesday with Snowfall on Lighthouse Lane by JoAnn Ross



ON SALE: October 30, 2018

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author JoAnn Ross is back with SNOWFALL ON LIGHTHOUSE LANE (HQN Books; on-sale October 30, 2018), the second novel in her already wildly popular Honeymoon Harbor series. In this novel, return to the beauty and romance of Honeymoon Harbor, a small seaport town in the Pacific Northwest, for this swoon-worthy holiday romance about finding a second chance at love.

Former LAPD officer Aiden Mannion is back in his hometown of Honeymoon Harbor, Washington, after losing his partner in the line of duty—a loss that continues to haunt him as he struggles to find his footing again. Now he’s taken a six-month gig at the local police department, protecting and serving the community that raised him while working through past demons and his survivor’s guilt.

But Aiden isn’t the only person back in Honeymoon Harbor after a long absence—so is Jolene Wells, a successful Hollywood makeup artist and Aiden’s old flame. Jolene has been around the block enough times to know that all the professional success in the world doesn’t make for true happiness—but she’s also never met the man she truly wants to grow old with…not since Aiden broke her heart so many years ago. But now that they’re both back in Washington, old feelings are stirred up and sparks reignite as Aiden and Jolene find it harder and harder to deny the chemistry between them. Together, can they find the courage to give love another shot?

Set against the backdrop of Washington’s beautiful and rugged Olympic Peninsula, SNOWFALL ON LIGHTHOUSE LANE is sexy, heartwarming, and perfect for cozy reading this holiday season!

Olympic Coast setting.” —Library Journal on Herons Landing

When New York Times bestselling author JoAnn Ross was seven years old, she had no doubt whatsoever that she’d grow up to play center field for the New York Yankees. Writing would be her backup occupation, something she planned to do after retiring from baseball. Those were, in her mind, her only options. While waiting for the Yankees’ management to call, she wrote her first novella — a tragic romance about two star-crossed mallard ducks — for a second grade writing assignment.

The paper earned a gold star. And JoAnn kept writing.

She’s now written over 100 novels and has been published in 26 countries. Two of her titles have been excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine, and her books have also been published by the Doubleday, Rhapsody, Literary Guild, and Mystery Guild book clubs. A member of the Romance Writers of America’s Honor Roll of best-selling authors, she’s won several awards, including RT Reviews’ Career Achievement Awards in both category romance and contemporary single title. In addition, she received RWA’s national service award and was named RWA ProMentor of the Year.

Although the Yankees have yet to call her to New York to platoon center field, JoAnn figures making one out of two life goals isn’t bad.

Currently writing her Honeymoon Harbor series (set on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula) for HQN, JoAnn lives with her high school sweetheart, whom she married twice, in her beloved Pacific Northwest.
