Blurb: Senator Adams’ daughter, Sophie. She is being blackmailed into marrying a man she detests, in order to keep a family secret from being revealed. So when she finds herself in the arms of a sexy kidnapper on the eve before the nuptials, she looks at it as a godsend. Until she realizes that her abductor’s every touch sets her on fire.

Brent is preparing for a long overdue vacation on his boat when he’s talked into kidnapping this ‘sweet, southern belle’. It would be a piece of cake, he’s told. So why does he suddenly find himself with a hellion on his hands? One who arouses him without trying, and knows how to satisfy him. Even though they fall for each other, they can only have a future if she admits the truth.

Review:

Sophie never shows her true feelings no matter what happens. That is the way she has been taught. She hates Lord with everything in her but knows she has to marry him to help her father. She is a very strong woman and will do what she has to for the people that she loves. Brent is not into kidnapping but will do what his friend Senator Adams’ wants him to do until he can find out what Lord has on his daughter.

I truly enjoyed this book it was full of mystery and action packed heart stopping action. Never send two men that are not used to being kidnappers to take a woman. You never know what she will do. I laughed at some of the things they did. I was also on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. I know that I didn’t want Lord to win because all he is nothing but bad. I know I was getting into a great book when the first chapter just caught my attention and kept it through the whole book.

Now I have read some books by this author before but it has been awhile. Now I know what I have been missing. This was a really heart felt read and at times I just didn’t know what to think. I could really feel everything that the characters were feeling and the author did a great job describing what was going on that I could really imagine it happening as I read. When I say you really need to give this book a try I’m not just saying it for the fun of it. So give it a try and see what kind of adventure you are taken on.

Cover Reveal ~ The Law of Attraction ~ N.M. Silber

lawof attraction
A funny, hot, and sexy new release from N.M. Silber

Once upon a time two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom …
Gabrielle Ginsberg was a public defender with plenty of nerve and Braden Pierce was an assistant district attorney with a whole lot of swagger. Gabrielle wanted Braden and Braden wanted Gabrielle.

And Cameron wanted Gabrielle.
And Marla wanted Braden.
And Cole wanted Gabrielle.
And Mrs. Mason wanted Braden.
And an anonymous letter writer wanted to keep Gabrielle and Braden apart.

Together Gabrielle and Braden discovered many important things, like which doors at the courthouse actually locked, and that desks could be useful for more than writing. They also found out that the path of love was not always smooth, and it was sometimes tread upon by some really wacky people, like a confused fanny grabber, an eighty-two year old pothead and a gentleman who threw a wine and cheese party in his pants. Could true love overcome a lack of privacy, interference by jealous rivals and the insanity of the criminal court system?

NOTICE: This book contains explicit descriptions of sexual situations and mature language. It is intended for readers over the age of eighteen.

About the Author-

Once upon a time … N.M. Silber was a criminal defense attorney who got up each morning, donned her power suit and sensible pumps, downed a gallon of coffee and set out to “fight the good fight” while trying to not go insane. Having a dark sense of humor and a sarcastic wit helped — a lot. Another thing that helped was reading. As escapism was the goal, she liked to read romance novels, especially really funny ones and really smutty ones. Then one day something beautiful happened — she read one that was both funny and smutty at the same time. She hung up her power suit, put away her sensible pumps and moved her coffee mug to her computer. Now she writes funny and smutty romance novels herself and she lives happily ever after.

What did I do?

flagA holiday! A day to relax and spend alone! Or so I’d hoped!

Hubby was at work. My daughter had to work, I was planning on not doing a damned thing. Writing, reading and lounging in bed, the only thing missing was bon bons! Of course I had coffee.

The day started leisurely. 700 AM is late for me so I felt like I had slept in. strawberriesI got up, tossed in a load of laundry, tossed out the ubiquitous junk mail, grabbed a cup of coffee and a bowl of cheerios with fresh cut strawberries. Mmmm. (My daughter’s fiancée works at his dad’s strawberry farm and they are in season!)

While my cheerios are softening up, I feed my dragons and play with them a while. From their reactions, they had planned on sleeping in longer-bad mommy! I leave them be and get back to feeding myself.

Done eating and having slowly had my cup of coffee, I surf the web. I excitedly find three new reviews-good ones!-posted on amazon. I happily share them on my facebook author page https://www.facebook.com/BeverlyOvalleAuthor. My mood is set!

Even the fact that I haven’t heard back from my editor in the 8 week time frame for submissions can’t bother me. Yes I’m still waiting, but had decided that I would spend the day going over my submission and prepping to submit to another publishing house. But first, I decided a shower was in order.

Then the phone rang. It could only be family. Yup! Mom and Dad. ‘What ya doing?’ ‘I was relaxing.’ They laugh. They know I had planned to relax. They called to say hi and have me talk them the hour drive to where they were going. ‘Nope, not gonna do that!’ We laugh, wish each other a Happy 4th of July and hang up after we tell our plans-again-for the day.

I finally headed to the shower. It was 10:00 AM. (Yes, the internet had sucked me in for about 2 hours!)

I had the shampoo in the hair and was just starting my routine when I hear footsteps up the stairs. Then the bathroom door opens up. My daughter didn’t have to work! And no she doesn’t really care about privacy! Not a hi or hello, just a “Mommy I’m bored.”

NO she is NOT three or even six or even those god awful early teen years. She is nineteen, has her own apartment, own job and own life. But Mommy evidently has to chase away her boredom still.

So we go to Black Waters and get coffee. We start to head to Subway for lunch, but pass a brat fry. And we don’t pass a brat fry! Turning around we pulled in for brats for lunch. Ketchup, mustard and sauerkraut are not good ideas when you’re wearing white and we both were!

Then we spent, oh two hours at Slumberland looking at furniture, testing recliners, laying on beds. My daughter decided on a couch set, but had to clear it with the fiancée. He loves his couch even though the kittens have used it as a scratching post and crawl inside it to sleep. He finally agreed as long as his mom would put it back in her basement. We found out they have layaway, so the set is waiting for them.slumberland

We headed to check out their new apartment. They are moving in two weeks. Her future mother in law is their new landlord (I don’t think either of us wanted them back home! I thanked her profusely!) They currently live in one of his grandpa’s apartments but this one is a first floor apartment which they both wanted. The other reason-they can walk to our house! *shaking my head*

Then, off to Fleet Farm to get our fishing licenses. We’ve decided to spend the afternoon fishing. But first a stop off at Joanne Fabrics to see if we can get material to match the recliner she’s getting. We can’t find it so head back to Slumberland to see if we can get material there from the company.

Finally we get our fishing licenses, new poles and tackle. We get home and take my hubby back to Slumberland so he can see her new couch set! (Yes this is the third time today! They offered us jobs! LOL)

We stop off to get food to bar b que. More brats! We head over to my folks lake house in town and have the bar b que there while we fish. We caught nothing, only fed the catfish well!

Her fiancée came over to eat and headed home to shower. They were going to go watch fireworks in the adjoining town. Still she stayed with us. My husband asked her why she didn’t spend the day with any of her friends instead of me.

Her response, ‘But Mommy is my friend.’

I got nothing done that I had planned, but I found out that my daughter does really like me. Huh, who knew!
