New Books & Awesome Reviews

My friend Dee’s contemporary romance, Betting Hearts, debuts today. Dee is a fabulous author, for those of you who haven’t read her yet!

Being newly published is scary enough, but when that first review hits, your stomach is in knots, your pulse races, and you wonder if maybe you shouldn’t have simply taken up a non-competitive, non-invasive pastime or hobby rather than throw yourself into the zany career life of a writer. Heather Rae received her first review a while back, and I’m happy to report that both writer and book are doing well. WAY TO GO, HEATHER!

Just Desserts, my 1st novel with Ellora’s Cave, received a Recommended Read by Fallen Angel Reviews.

This is my first Lyn Cash, and I can tell you, it sure heated me up. Grab some ice (ice cream, even!). You’ll need it to prevent your temperature from shooting off into the stratosphere. The chemistry between these characters will scorch you, and sear them in your heart and mind for a long time to come. They are fabulous characters, as are all the characters in Just Desserts. Beyond likeable, their antics, exploits and mishaps will leave you laughing, and you’ll definitely not want to leave them till the very end.

You can read the entire review here. It’s kinda kewl receiving that little Golden Angel award – THANK YOU, Elizabeth, for the kind words.

Leaving Mama has had a few requests for reviews, so I’ll be posting more information about that book as the reviews trickle in. Oh…here is one I didn’t know about! “Leaving Mama is a funny and romantic story about a family secret and how people become involved in it. Bobbie Cole has written a story to enjoy. With a tear and a laugh…” – THANK YOU, ANNICK!

My friend Alexis has been receiving rave reviews for A Handyman’s Best Tool (which is hysterically funny!!!), and it is now available in print here.

For a wonderful fantasy romance, take a look at Samantha Winston’s Planetary Passions—Renegade Aquarius. Writers who world-build just intrigue the heck outta me, and Sam is one of the best. Sam also writes contemporary romances, such as The Argentine Lover (a hero to die for, by the way).

She’s a fascinating woman, and her passion for writing, sports (her husband IS a polo player who travels the world), and her home shine through in every word. If you’ve never visited her blog, I encourage you to do so, and nooo, not simply because you’ll find an interview with moi there some day.

Friend and fellow Samhellion Meg Allison is getting good reviews for her book, Secrets and Shadows.

BIG SHOUT-OUT to JORRIE SPENCER, who is always so kind to post information about the Samhain Publishing company’s releases! Jorrie is fabulous, and her blog always has the latest information and some great comments regarding our profession.

Another SHOUT-OUT and thanks to Tracy for blogging about Leaving Mama!

Have a terrific week, everyone! Last but not least, here is the day's funny from Alex:

I thought this was a rather appropriate response to the rising gasoline prices! - THANKS, ALEX!
