Meet me in Fool's Gold once again for an all new novel out July 2015

***********Thank you NetGalley for an advanced copy of this title**********

Maya Farlow learned the hard way to depend only on herself, so when she fell too deeply for the bad-boy charms of Del Mitchell, she did the only thing she could—she ran. Stunned, Del left Fool's Gold to make his name and fortune in extreme sports. 

Now ten years later, Maya's been hired to promote her hometown's new slogan, The Destination for Romance. The celebrity spokesman is none other than Del, the man she dumped but never forgot. Awkward! 

Although Del's not the type to hold a grudge, he's determined to avoid falling a second time for the woman who broke his heart. He's a daredevil, not an idiot. Trouble is, in all his adventures, he never found a rush as exhilarating as Maya's kiss. Maybe risking his heart will prove to be the biggest thrill of all…

Maya walked out on Del and broke his heart. Now, back in Fool's Gold to help with the TV campaign, she has to work with him. It is the hardest thing she has ever had to do. She left because she was scared . And she hurt Del badly in the process. Can they really learn to work together?

Maya is keeping a secret from Del, which she doesn't want to do, but she made a promise. She knows that if Del ever finds out, it will destroy anything that has happened between them. They learn that they work really well together. They are making video commercials touting the town of Fools Gold, and they are turning out pretty fantastic. What Maya wants, is to travel the world, preferably with Del. She wants to go out and do good and make a difference.

Del has no clue about Maya's dreams. He knows he isnt a stay in one spot kind of guy, but is Maya willing to head out to the great beyond with him?

I have to say, LibraryReads chose part of my review to advertise "Kiss Me", Phoebe and Zane's book. I was so honored, and thrilled, and I totally fangirled when I ended up on Susan Mallery's facebook page and her website! There is  Fools Gold Getaway in Chicago coming up July 31st and August 1 2015. I am so going and I cannot wait! Its going to be awesome to meet Ms Mallery finally, after reading her for so long! 

Anyways, "Thrill Me" is just as awesome as all the others, so as soon as its released... Read! lol!

JR Ward brings us something new!

For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege—as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet.

For Lizzie King, Easterly’s head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted—and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane’s beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets.

As family tensions—professional and intimately private—ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.

Lizzie made a mistake in having a relationship with  Lane Bradford, she's must smarter and positive it won't happen again. Lane comes home because his "mother" isn't well. His real mother hasn't been well in years and stays in her room. The woman who isn't well is a cook in the family's kitchen. A woman who pretty much raised him and his siblings. He has avoided home but now returns to check on her. 
There are so many different story lines going on in this book.  Lane finds missing money from the family company, Lane divorcing his wife. Edward, the eldest Bradford child, learning to deal with his disabilities after being kidnapped and tortured in South America. The only girl Gin being married off by their father to a horrible man. After Lane gets in trouble for supposedly beating up his wife, will Lizzie take the time to believe in him or run?
This book, while when you read it you can see JR Ward, is different than her usual paranormal stuff, but I really enjoyed it.

Kilts and Quils return with an all new book... A matchmaker and a fisherman? Interesting....


Kit Woodhouse’s matchmaking business is such a success, she’s expanding to the Highlands of Scotland where the hot, prosperous, and kilted are anxious to connect. Now, looking to fill her stable with eligible bachelors, Kit’s arrived in Gandiegow to recruit potential Real Men of Scotland. It’s not until she meets her tour guide that she discovers just how real they can be.

With his sexy grin, jeans, and black wellies, Ramsay Armstrong is an unpolished hulk of a Scottish fisherman—and a skeptic when it comes to romance. Not exactly a man of “pairing attributes” when talking marriageable matches, but he does make Kit’s heart beat a little faster. Maybe it’s the scent of the sea in his hair. Maybe it’s the challenge. Maybe it’s the thrill of the unexpected. Then again, maybe it’s love.

Kit is determined to keep her matchmaking business going so she can take care of her mother and sisters. She needs this job to put her sisters through school and help her mother, who works part time at an art gallery. Growing up, Kit's family had been rich with multiple homes, but the real estate crash decimated their family. She's in search of wealthy Scottish men to pair up with her wealthy American female clients.

Ramsay is determined to break up this matchmaking scheme and will stoop to low levels to get Kit to leave Gandiegow. His brother hires him out as Kit's driver, making him drive her all over the place searching out male clients. He secretly convinces the men they don't really need a woman. Kit is growing frustrated that the men are backing out on her, and Deydie forcing her to quilt is cutting into the time she has to do her job. The American women are coming to Scotland to meet the men, and Kit has no men. 

When Ramsey finds out that Kit needs this job to support her family, he realizes he screwed up. But is there any way to make it right, so late in the game? Not to mention he is so attracted to Kit, and Kit to him, and they both just can't figure out how right they are for each other! 

Patience Griffin has brought us another fantastic tale set on the coast of Scotland. Her characters are so great! Previous characters are around as well as some new ones. I pick these books up and can't put them down. And Ms Griffin herself is awesome! After meeting her last year, I promise to read and review everything she has, to get the word out. Because awesome authors need awesome fans, like us :)
