Bound by Love ~ Toni V. Sweeney

Bound by Love

a Southern Gothic Romance from Buroughs Publications



After a nasty divorce, former investigative reporter Dylan Roth is home again, working with his dad and brother in the family construction business.

When he’s assigned to work on Scarlett “Letty” Mercier’s family home, a renovation being filmed for the TV show Dream Homes, Unlimited, he and the headstrong redhead feel an undeniable attraction. Upon learning the Roths’ and the Merciers’ pasts are entwined, Dylan’s reporter’s instincts kick in; he starts digging, and family history can no longer stay buried.

Dylan and Letty are bound by a haunting secret that threatens to tear them apart unless they can break the ties of the past.

“Mother, whatever you’re cooking up, forget it,” I said. “Letty Mercier and I are not going to be romantically-inclined toward each other any time soon.”

“If you say so, dear.” She went back to the paper, laying aside the comics and opening Parade magazine.

“Don’t do that,” I warned. She’d used the same tone she always did when I said something and she refused to argue because she knew better. “I…no, never mind. Dad, What’s the deal here?”

“What do you mean, son?” Dad looked up from the want ads.

“Quit it. You know exactly what I mean. What’s this thing you and Letty keep hinting at? The bygone you two are letting go by. The reason her father might worry about her staying with us?”

Dad didn’t answer.

“You may as well tell him.” Mom looked around the page she was holding. “It’s unfair to keep Dylan in the dark, especially since Letty obviously knows.”

Dad didn’t answer. Instead, his mouth tightened into a sudden straight line.

“He has a right,” Mom went on. “So simply state it plainly…about your great-grandfathers, and the scandal, and everything.”

“Scandal?” I looked from him to her and back. “What kind of scandal?”

Dad sighed. “Why bring it up?”

“You already have,” she answered. “By not bringing it up.”

“So there really is some deep, dark secret?” I asked. “A skeleton in the Roth closet…and the Mercier one, too?”

“I don’t know why it has to be dug up at this late date.” Dad folded the newspaper and dropped it onto the lamp table in a gesture just short of throwing it. “Why can’t we simply ignore it and—”

“You realize you’re only making me more curious,” I told him. “What happened?” His expression was so serious I had to laugh. “Come on, Dad. What could be so bad? Did Great-grandpa Roth run off with Great-grandpa Mercier’s wife or something?”

Mom drew in a sharp breath.

For a full minute, Dad studied me silently before he answered.

“On the contrary. He ran off with Great-grandpa Mercier.”

Just Me (You & Me – A Bad Boy Romance Book 1)
by Lexy Timms

Piper: He’s the boss of my panties. Literally. As in he’s the fiercely protective big brother and utterly supportive CEO of his sister’s clothing company–the one I design lingerie for. Yep, he’s as dreamy as he sounds. So dreamy, in fact, that I can’t seem to string two coherent sentences together around the man. Until, that is, the day I open my mouth at one of our design staff meetings for the first time ever. And now here I am, working directly with Cole, the one man I can’t stop thinking about while designing lacy bits for women whose sex lives are undoubtedly more interesting than my nonexistent one…

Cole: She designs some of the sexiest lingerie I’ve ever laid eyes on. The quietly classy kind. The kind I can imagine her wearing. Even though I shouldn’t. She’s my little sister’s employee, for chrissakes; I can’t touch her. So instead, I just show up at these design staff meetings every month. My sister thinks I’m just keeping an eye on the company’s bottom line. I’m not. I’ve only got eyes for one bottom these days–Piper’s. And now that I’ve discovered the shyest lingerie designer on the planet is capable of exchanging more than a few words with me each month, it’ll be a miracle if I can stop thinking about her at all…

WARNING: This HOT, feel-good quickie has lots of sexy fun times and an OTT adorable HEA complete with two epilogues (because seriously, these two are just so freaking cute). So, if you like protective, possessive alpha heroes who move mountains for their heroines and try to take things slow…at first, before getting super dirty and even more crazy romantic, then this sweet & steamy fast read is for you!

The Long Awaited Next Installment of Samantha Kane’s Beloved Brothers in Arms Series!

“No one does the hot historical better…” – Kate Pearce NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author

Are two men who love the same woman one step away from falling in love with each other?

Simon Gantry has done it all. He’s handsome, sophisticated, a lethal spy, and a war veteran. And he’s broken inside. A tragedy when he was young has kept Simon from ever truly giving his heart to anyone, until he met Christy Ashbury.

As a constable dedicated to the rule of law, Robert Manderley has always preferred order to chaos, logic to intuition, facts to fantasy. Yet when he met Christy Ashbury—a woman who lied to him about everything—he gladly forgot all of that.

Christy fell in love with both Simon and Robert at the same time. Now married to Robert, Christy pretends to be the woman she thinks he wants. When Simon reappears in their lives the real Christy—the woman only Simon knows and the one he still loves—reveals herself to Robert. Her passion and strength captivate Robert more than ever even as he watches her and Simon fight their rekindled love.

Robert and Simon must work closely together on a grisly murder case that escalates into a terrifying threat to London, and to Christy. The two men overcome their jealousy to find a bond growing between them, as well as an unexpected passion. Is Christy all that binds them together, or are two men who love the same woman one step away from falling in love with each another?

All Simon wanted was to be alone with his thoughts. Was that too much to ask for a poor man who’d been kidnapped, beaten, tortured and rescued?

Alas, it was not to be…

From me to you

Good morning! I’ve been up a couple of hours already. Getting tomorrow’s sales posts ready, working on my other blog. It’s all about volcanoes today!

I’ve been doing an intense bit of babysitting so unfortunately I’ve not been able to write for a couple of days. I’ve jotted a few words down, but not as much as I’d like. This weekend it doesn’t appear I’ll have a lot of chances.

It’s hard to write with a four year old constantly wanting attention. Like right now. Or the TV on. I have to admit I can sing the theme song for Mia & Me, Miraculous, and My Little Pony. Not that I want to. Not to mention the lullaby in Frozen II!

I don’t know what the little one and I will do today. Probably a trip to McDonald’s play land. She can play and I can read, lol. Hopefully I can get some time to write. I’m also working on a couple of dresses and more pajamas for her. I missed sewing.

Here are the nightgowns I made for her this week. I have three more planned.

Now I’ve got to go. Accidentally hit her with my elbow. No blood, no bruise but she’s offended!

Jesse’s only priority in life is protecting the people he loves, so he’s determined to see Rowan Harbor’s wards rebuilt. There’s just one problem: they’re missing an ingredient that can’t be ordered online.

Jesse volunteers to search for the missing component in the realm of the fae, but his boyfriend, Sean, isn’t letting him go alone. The town has an enemy among the fae, so they’ll need to keep a low profile. Along their way, they find unexpected allies, surprising enemies, and a whole host of problems.

The journey is a test of their endurance, but also of their relationship and their faith in each other. Can they find what they need and get back home in one piece in time for the summer solstice?

Sam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.

If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.

In Mistletoe ~ Tour & Giveaway


In Mistletoe
by Tammy L. Bailey
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press, Inc
Publication Date: December 2, 2016
At twenty-five, Grace Evans is steadily picking up the pieces of everyone else’s life. So, when her younger sister decides to turn into a runaway bride just four weeks before the wedding, Grace, drops everything to chase after her and bring her back home. Only, when the trail leads to Mistletoe, Washington, she finds herself at the mercy of the town’s most handsome and emotionally unavailable bachelor.
Ex-Army officer, Ayden McCabe, has three creeds in life: never make the first move, never fall in love, and never take anyone to Mistletoe’s Christmas Dance. Wanting nothing more than to keep his matchmaking sister from meddling in his personal life, he agrees to help Grace if she agrees to play his girlfriend. Too brunette and meek for his taste, Ayden believes Grace can’t tempt him enough to break any of his creeds. He could not be more wrong.
A LEO wife, mother, and military veteran, Tammy began writing when the shows and movies she watched didn’t end the way she wanted them to end. Whether it’s historical or contemporary, for her, there must always be a happy ending.
When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with her husband and two boys near Cleveland, Ohio. Without their sacrifice and understanding, she believes she would have never been able to pursue her passion of writing or her accomplishment of becoming a published author.
