The Resilient Bride by Lucy McConnell

31117265
Liam Bernhard has climbed Egyptian pyramids, skydived, searched for sunken treasure, reached high camp on Mount Everest, and paddle boarded in Antarctica. He has one final wish before he dies; he wants to be married. With time running short, he hires Pamela Jones to find him a bride.
Kiera Martin has done the Billionaire Marriage Brokers arrangement once before and it didn’t turn out well. She left her verbally abusive husband and BMB behind to nurse her mom through cancer treatments—expensive cancer treatments. Three years later, with few financial options left, still carrying baggage from her first marriage, and her mom in remission, Kiera gives Pamela one more chance.
What she thinks will be the fast road to debt reduction turns out to be the hardest path she’s ever trod as Liam’s diagnosis looms over their every minute together. He showers her with enough love to last eternity, which is good because eternity may be all they have to look forward to. In order to find her happy ending in a world where sorrows outweigh the joys, Kiera must learn how to live in the moment, cherish every good gift, and love like she was dying.

My Review:
I'm such a huge Lucy McConnell fan and was ecstatic when I got an email that her newest book was out. The book was not what I was expecting, it was so much more. Romantic love, brotherly love, friendship, tenderness and caring, life and death. It's all there and I just can't recommend this book enough.

The Barefoot Groom by Taylor Hart

30967188Enjoy this sweet romance by Taylor Hart.
After London Bridge—yes, her mother really named her that—gets assigned by her magazine to expose the relationship guru, Cooper Harrison, as a fraud—she refuses. Until her boss threatens to fire her. Who is this man and why does he always walk around without shoes?
Cooper Harrison doesn’t care how many times his billionaire friends bug him about dating again…he’s not ready. So what if he teaches others how to have fulfilling relationships? Maybe he should quit.
When London ‘accidentally’ trespasses on said guru’s property and meets him in the hot tub, she never imagined their interaction would lead to actually kissing the guy, then telling him about getting left at the altar. Too bad he laughs at her…Jerk. Suddenly exposing him doesn’t seem so hard.
She never expected to see him the next day and kiss him, again. Then lie about having a boyfriend to protect him. Was she really figuring out reasons to avoid a hot billionaire? After a helicopter ride, and her military brother showing up and pretending to be her boyfriend…London doesn’t know how to tell him the truth. Now she’s left with a choice—pretend to be something she’s not…or take a chance on the barefoot billionaire.

Cooper's story's is a stand alone book. But, there's three other fun bachelor billionaires living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming who have already fallen in love...they are:

Cameron Cruz, football player for the Denver Storm. His story is Second String (Part of The Last Play Romance Series)
and
Montana Crew, his story is Almost Everything (Part of The Destination Billionaire Romances)
and
Hunter James, his story is The Unfinished Groom (Part of the Bachelor Billionaire Romances)

My Review:
I've been a huge fan of Taylor Hart's since I read her first Last Play book. Who couldn't love tough, broken NFL players? This group of billionaire philanthropists that Taylor Hart has created are just as amazing as the football boys. They are all men any woman would dream of dating and their stories are as unique, interesting, and romantic as they are. Highly recommend this entire series!

Hawaiian Masquerade by Rachelle J. Christensen

Aloha!
I love reading on my back patio in the summer and what better than to read about a romance set on the beautiful island of Kauai. I loved this book and hope you will too!
Hugs,
Cami

Hawaiian Masquerade
by Rachelle J. Christensen
Find it on
Goodreads * Amazon

Excerpt
Lexi closed her eyes. The waves rolled in slowly, rhythmically, with a dependability that would never be doubted. Shawn had been her rock and they’d worked together with a rhythm that had kept their jobs and life in sync. Before Derek, she might’ve entertained a future with Shawn … but the dark-haired man with a camera bag slung over his shoulder had changed everything. 

Story Summary
When Lexi Burke escaped the remnants of a cold winter in Chicago for the beaches of Kauai, it wasn’t a random vacation. She left the hectic pace of Burke Enterprises behind with enough money to retire at age thirty-two, intent on settling into the idyllic existence of island life. Until she met local photographer Derek Mitchell—a talented man with a grudge against rich tourists.

From art night to snorkeling lessons, hiking, and chopping coconuts, Lexi can’t talk herself out of spending time with the handsome, hardworking man who knows the value of every dollar. She also can’t find a way to tell him the truth about herself. But then Derek is selected to help in a benefit at a masquerade ball as one of the eligible bachelors up for auction. Lexi must decide whether to wear a mask or unveil her true self and risk losing Derek’s trust and a chance at love.

My Review:
Hawaiian Masquerade is a summer must-read. I loved the setting, the characters, and the romance. Rachelle Christensen has been a long-time favorite author and her newest release is everything I'd hoped - fun, fast-paced, and romantic. Highly recommended.

Summer House Party: A Timeless Regency Romance

29347539Join three bestselling Regency Romance authors, Regina Scott, Donna Hatch, and Sarah M. Eden, for three new novellas in SUMMER HOUSE PARTY.

AN ENGAGEMENT OF CONVENIENCE by Regina Scott: Kitty Chapworth is nearly a spinster, and an orphan living on the charity of her uncle, with nothing to recommend her for the marriage mart. Her primary purpose is relegated to acting chaperone for her cousins until she can see them successfully married. Kitty remains focused on her duty even though she knows her future is bleak. When Quentin Adair returns from a long ten years working in Jamaica and proposes a wild charade to Kitty, she agrees, although the plan might reawaken her old feelings for Quentin. Can a reformed rake convince the perfect chaperone to overlook propriety for love? 

A PERFECT MATCH by Donna Hatch: Genevieve attends a summer house party hosted by her best friend who can't wait to introduce her to a gentleman she wants to marry, Christian Amesbury. After meeting him, Genevieve determines Christian is perfect . . . for her. Torn between loyalty to her best friend and the yearnings of her heart, Genevieve must first escape the attention of a powerful lord who's obsessed with her and who tries to rob her of any hope for a happily ever after. 

THE PAUPERS’ HOUSE PARTY by Sarah M. Eden: It’s a rare event that Edward Downy and his brother are invited to a house party by a member of the ton. But when they arrive, Edward quickly realizes this house party is different than any other. All invited guests are quite destitute, fallen members of Society barely hanging onto their homes. The hosts of the house party, the Warricks, then make a stunning announcement—they intend to gift all their properties to one fortunate guest. As the guests race to impress the Warricks, Edward finds a fast friend in Agatha Holmwood, who shares his same aversion to the horrible expectations. But their growing fondness for each other only makes the game more painful.

My review:
I keep saying each Timeless Regency Collection is my favorite, but I'm serious this time - Summer House Party is my favorite! Honestly, all the Timeless Regency Romances are fabulous. This is book candy that I cannot get enough of and my only request is they publish them more often. I would highly recommend all of the sets.

Summer Fun/College Lacrosse Prospects

I apologize for not posting the past few weeks. We have been in Colorado and Illinois chasing my 17yo's dreams of playing college lacrosse. It's been a fabulous time to see him excel and do fun things with my younger boys and my husband. If any of you have children who are interested in playing a sport in college, please feel free to contact me. I have learned a lot over the past year and all the recruiting camps and workshops that we thought would be effective are definitely not the way to go (at least for lacrosse). We found the key is to find the right coach with the right connections. My 17yo is currently corresponding with over thirty different universities and already has some solid offers in place. We're thrilled for him and grateful to have finally found the right people/situation to help him succeed.
Now we're home from all the traveling and life has slowed down a little bit. Yay! We're sleeping in, riding bikes to the park, eating lots of ice cream, and enjoying summer. How is your summer going?
I'll paste in a few pictures below of our last three weeks. Hugs to all!

Reviews of Blog This
"I absolutely loved this book! Cami is one of my favorite authors and she has never let me down. The book starts out with a mom and her two children playing in the snow, enjoying being with each other and having a blast. Then out of the blue their world is turned upside down.
The book was filled with a lot of suspense, but there was also "Cami humor", (which I love) and a little romance, or a lot, depending on which way you look at it. Seems it was coming from all directions!" - I'd Rather Be Reading at the Beach Reviews
"Natasha is a mother first and foremost. Her priority is her children. She is also a blogger who tries to protect children from the machinations of an unscrupulous man who creates violent video games with subliminal messages to teach children to kill. There are many plot twists that even though you know what the objectives of the story are, you are kept guessing and reading! I started this book at 10 pm, not my brightest moment. I forced myself to stop reading at midnight and was back at the book at 6 am." - Bookworm Lisa
"Oof! Holy macaroni! The tension!! Nobody can spin a story like Cami Checketts! Wowzers! Awesome book. I think my toes were curled and stayed that way from the first sentence to the very last! Yes, of course the story is unrealistic. Nobody would stay in their house when there's a hired killer after them. But then, we wouldn't have a story, would we?! I loved the suspense throughout. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. Highly recommended, as always!"

Ty has never considered himself lucky in life or in love, until now. But not all of Ty’s plans are popular and someone is determined to stop him, putting everyone and everything he loves at risk.

Her elation is cut short when she receives her next assignment: Brooke Matthews—the snotty, entitled, princess, who did everything in her power to snatch Dawson away from Alex.

He’s trained to hang on for all he’s worth for eight seconds, but can this cowboy hang on to Brooke long enough to win the prize? Or, will he be able to see Brooke’s inner beauty and find the love of a lifetime? Maybe … with a little help from an almost angel. Faced with the insurmountable task of helping the cowboy and the billionaire’s daughter fall in love, Gracie digs in, determined to do things her way. When Sheldon, a dark angel with killer looks, floats back into her life, err … afterlife, Gracie must fight against her growing attraction to heaven’s bad boy. Heart of the Billionaire is a stand-alone novel. But to get the full effect of how things work in the realm of angels, check out Candlelight Kisses (Book 1 in the Almost an Angel Series) amazon Praise for the Series: "I did not see that ending coming! Gracie is not what I expected either...she doesn't fit the mold of what you think an "angel-in-training" is supposed to be like, and it will be fun to see her continue to learn and change. I love her mentor, Gertrude! It is a fun, clean romance that keeps you interested and entertained. Eagerly anticipating the next one in the series!” by Verified Amazon Customer "Love this series! Nash's desire to save his father's ranch touched me. And it helped he's hot and swoon worthy! And Gracie's love story with the 'bad boy' makes it even more interesting! Love this! Don't miss it!” Always Reading add to goodreads   Excerpt From Heart of the Billionaire (Book 2 in The Almost an Angel Series) Stewart Matthews sat poised on the edge of his seat, his body taut—his face wearing the laser-beam focus of a General preparing for battle. In many ways, he was fighting the greatest battle of his life, for it involved the heart of the one he loved the most. He could only see one way to help Brooke, but she wouldn’t like it. In fact, she would be so angry that she might never speak to him again. That was the price he would have to pay for attempting to save her. Better to be a parent than a friend. Even though he dreaded what was to come, he knew there was no other option. His money had been the thing that sent Brooke down her path of self-destruction. He could only hope that it would also be the catalyst that would save her A feeling of resignation settled over him as he looked down at the blank page. Then he picked up the pen and began to write … My Darling Brooke, From the moment you were born and I held you in my arms, I knew that my life would never again be the same. Never before had I experienced such pure and complete love. And that love has only grown and multiplied over the years. You are my heart, my primary responsibility, and I will take any measures necessary to protect you, even if that means protecting you from yourself. Sweetheart, my only desire is that you find joy and contentment—the kind that can only come from within. You need to learn to love unconditionally and to love someone so completely that you are willing to put his needs before your own. Please know that I have spent many a night, walking the floors, trying to determine the best course of action to set you back on the right path. A way has been opened up, and I intend to take full advantage of it. My only hope is that you will one day find it in your heart to forgive me, for what I’m about to do. A knock sounded. He looked up as his assistant stuck her head in the door. “I’m sorry to disturb you, but the attorney is here and waiting in the conference room. It’s time.” The moment of truth was here. Once he signed the documents, there would be no going back. He blew out a breath, a rigid look of determination on his lined face. “Tell them I’ll be there in five minutes.”     Youngblood PooleJennifer Youngblood & Sandra Poole Jennifer and Sandra—daughter and mother writing duo—have been writing together for many years and have over a dozen published novels, a collection of short stories, and a children’s book (released under the pen name of Periwinkle Blue). They feel it’s a great privilege to be able to collaborate with each other as it adds a depth and spice to their work that neither of them could get independently. For them, writing is a continual journey of discovery. They have so many ideas for books that it’s hard to focus on one at a time. Both of them have a penchant for chocolate, seafood, and movies. Jennifer has a B.A. in English and Social Sciences from BYU Hawaii, and Sandra has a Masters in Business Administration. Jennifer and Sandra now live in the Rocky Mountains with their families.
