Storm of Attraction by Lily Black

Love is worth fighting for.
Alexa Wolving has just one rule: never give a guy a second chance. That works just fine in the safe life she’s built. In the charming town of Willowdale, her day job as a librarian balances perfectly with her evening job as a black belt instructor. But when she attracts the attention of a stalker, Alexa’s carefully built world begins to crumble.
Drew Cosimo knows he broke Alexa’s heart five years ago when he took his first Ranger assignment and disappeared from her life. Now that he’s out of the army, he’s moving back home to Willowdale. He’s not looking for a fight, but making peace would be easier if Alexa hadn’t told the entire town he was a money-grubbing jerk. Despite the tension between them, Drew is quick to offer his protection when a stalker forces Alexa from her home.
As the stalker’s attacks escalate, Alexa and Drew are forced to face their painful past and the simmering attraction between them. They must fight to save each other before everything they care about goes up in flames.

Carve Me a Melody by Rachelle J. Christensen

I can't believe another week has rolled by. Time goes too fast! I've spent most of my week at a writer's retreat with some of the most amazing ladies. I'm writing the sequel to Cozumel Escape this week. If you remember Brooks and Sydnee's story, I hope you'll love this one too. The hero, Jace, is the guy who chased Sydnee from Alabama to Cozumel. His heart was broken and he needs a feisty and fun lady. I'm very excited to announce that he's going to meet Moriah and her adorable boy, Turk, from The Faithful One at the Villa Del Palmar Resort in Cancun. Moriah is one of my favorite people with her positive attitude and dance moves. Trin and Zander forced her to go on this vacation, but she doesn't complain for a minute, especially when she meets Jace.
My fun writing friends push me to write better and I love it. One of them is Rachelle Christensen.
Rachelle is the author of the The Soldier's Bride which won the Kindle Scout Publishing Award and is a Whitney Award Finalist. It is now on a special sale for $1 and the sequel
Carve Me a Melody is now available for pre-order. Isn't the cover gorgeous?


Here's a little about this story:

World War II has ended but the scars of the war have carved deep grooves in Sophie Wright’s heart. Now a widow with two young children, she returns home to Aspen Falls and meets Leland Halverson, a handsome carpenter who appears interested in her, but afraid of a relationship. 
Leland wishes he was worthy of the beautiful Sophie, and he adores her two children, but his past still haunts him. Sophie knows that Leland fell apart after his little girl died and his wife left him, but she doesn’t know the real reason why.
Meanwhile, David Alexander, a decorated bomber pilot has returned to Aspen Falls, and Sophie catches his eye. Confused by the two vastly different choices of men, Sophie searches for answers from a heart that has betrayed her before.</ div>
When Sophie discovers a message inside a music box that Leland once owned, the pieces start to fit together. The enchanting melody urges her to share the secrets of her heart so that she can understand his. Leland knows the tune from the music box well and if he can find the courage, he’ll carve a melody for Sophie from the solid wood surrounding his heart.

Carve Me a Melody will be released on May 23, 2017 and you can preorder your copy today, right here.
To celebrate, Rachelle is hosting a giveaway for a $25 Amazon or Paypal Gift card. All you have to do for entries is join the party! Please join me in sharing the good news. Thank you for your support!

Excerpt - How to Love a Dog's Best Friend

I loved writing this fun romance and remembering the dog of my childhood, a huge Great Dane named Matrix. Here's a quick excerpt from the book:

The general contractor, Joshua, eyed Brikelle sternly. “Tell your husband you’ll see him later, and let’s take a tour and share your ideas with Emma.”
Brikelle swallowed and pivoted to face Colt. Her heart was thundering in her ears, and she had no clue how she’d just become involved in this confusing mess. The other cabinet workers had quietly returned to their work.
Colt studied her with his too-blue eyes. “See you later, sweetheart.” He stumbled over the word, and if Emma wasn’t watching she would’ve stomped on his foot or something.
“Work hard, honey.” She almost choked on the term too.
Colt bent down close and she was struck by a clean, manly scent with just a hint of wood shavings. He brushed his lips across her cheek, and Brikelle jumped. This was too much.
“Oh, come now,” Emma said from behind them when Brikelle pulled away. “We’re not in that big of a hurry. Give her a real kiss.”
Brikelle’s eyes widened and her body started trembling again. She’d traded her nerves over working for Emmaline Jensen for nerves about being forced to kiss a good-looking man who she didn’t like, not at all.
Colt studied her and his mouth quirked in a sarcastic smile. “Always time for a real kiss.”
He wrapped his hands around her hips and pulled her tight against him, taking his time as he leaned closer. His eyes were full of challenge: she could back away if she wanted, but he wasn’t going to. Brikelle jutted her chin out and rose onto tiptoes. Colt cocked an eyebrow and grinned before claiming her lips with his own like they were married and did this move multiple times a day.
It took Brikelle’s body less than a second to respond. Her eyes fluttered closed, her hands found their way around his broad back, and before she could stop herself she was returning kiss for kiss. It was almost another battle between them, but the sparks now were sizzling and delicious. Brikelle finally conceded defeat, mentally bowing to him as the kissing champion, and broke away from his grasp. They were both breathing heavy. He squeezed her waist, then dropped his hands.
“See you soon,” he murmured, his eyes searching hers. Now his blue gaze was soft and beseeching. She couldn’t win against that battle either, and instead swung her gaze back to Joshua and Emma, both watching with their mouths slightly open.
“Well, then. That was definitely a real kiss.” Emma smiled sweetly. “Let’s start in the entry, shall we?”
Brikelle hurried away from Colt’s side, feeling his eyes on her until she escaped the great room. What in the world had she gotten herself into?

Free Book

One of my closest writing friends said to me, "Cami, we're producing chocolate. People enjoy it then move on." At first I was a little peeved by that perception. She knows how much love, sweat, and hours we put into each book, but then I stopped and thought about it, and as a voracious reader I kind of love the analogy. I adore chocolate and I adore books. If I'm without either I get grumpy. I always have a chocolate stash and my Kindle is always stocked with books. I also love all kinds of chocolate and books. Sure, I'd take dark chocolate with sea salt over a Hershey's bar, but I'm not picky. As long as I'm savoring chocolate or words, I'm happy. I overheard my son telling his friend as they sniffed out and decimated the chocolate stash, "This is my momma's chocolate, you can eat it, but you have to savor it." Ha!
Today I've got some new book chocolate for you that I think you'll savor as much as I have. Lindzee Armstrong is an amazing clean romance author and she is giving away the first book in her No Match for Love series. Click here to sign up. More about Meet Your Match:
Nothing slows love down like the friend zone. Brooke’s convinced all boys are trouble. Luke’s a player who loves the thrill of the chase. Can a set of crazy rules keep these two safely in the friend zone? Enjoy this witty and fast-paced romance today!

The No Match for Love series follows the matchmakers and clients of Toujour on their journeys to love. Each story can be read as a stand-alone, so start with whichever book catches your interest the most!

My Fair Lacey by Janette Rallison
Lacey Johnson has dreamed of opening a restaurant for years. All she needs is one little loan to make it happen. But with the way Lacey talks and dresses, she looks more like someone who would hold up a bank than someone who’d ever get a loan from one. When Garrett Halifax, her roommate’s Harvard-educated brother, volunteers to change her image and teach her to speak correctly, she jumps at the chance. But she quickly finds she’s in over her head. Pretending to fit in with the town’s elite is harder than she thought, and despite her best efforts, she’s falling for Garrett. Could someone who is handsome, rich, and educated ever consider her as more than just a project? A contemporary twist on My Fair Lady, this is a story that is sure to please Echo Ridge fans.

You’ve Got Email by Heather Tullis

She would be happy to focus on getting to know him better, but her two jobs and two sons keep her ridiculously busy. Then there’s her ex-husband’s bookie, who’s impatiently waiting for the last couple payments on his debt.
Bret can’t help but notice how hard the beautiful Maria works and the similarities she has with the Zoomama he’s been talking with online. Though he really wants to make things easier for her, Bret accidentally gets her in hot water with both of her bosses. Can he get Maria to give him a chance in the real world and not just online?

The Princess Bride of Riodan by Rachelle J. Christensen
When a mysterious man offers to help Elise redecorate the old Bed & Breakfast, she gladly hands him a wallpaper steamer. After she discovers his true identity, she doesn’t know whether to curtsy or run and hide. Unfortunately, hiding isn’t an option because her heart is already tangled up with the handsome prince. At the same time, Elise’s old crush from high school wants a relationship and she’s forced to decide whether to chase after a fairy tale ending or stay grounded in reality.

My Best Man’s Wedding by Cami Checketts

When Josh calls with the news that he's coming home to Echo Ridge for his wedding, Jessica is determined to break up the happy couple and take her rightful place as his bride.

Things become all the more complicated when Ryder’s estranged family gets involved.

Love at the Ocean Breeze by Jennifer Youngblood

You know those fabulous heroes who are just dreamy and you can't stop thinking about? (Don't tell my honey!) Jennifer Youngblood created that guy in her newest Hawaii Billionaire Romance. I loved this book and it's only $.99 until tomorrow night. Find it on Amazon.


Sweet romance meets spine-tingling suspense in this next book in the Hawaii Billionaire Series by bestselling authors Jennifer Youngblood & Sandra Poole.

When his sister goes missing in Hawaii, TV Reality Star Trevor Spencer hops a plane and goes to find her. A chance meeting with Kat, a glamorous and smart single mother, ignites a spark that kindles into a whirlwind romance. But things are not as idyllic as the picturesque island around them, for Kat is harboring secrets that could not only hinder Trevor’s investigation into his sister’s disappearance, but also destroy any chance of a lasting relationship between her and Trevor. 

As Trevor delves deeper into his investigation, he wonders whom to trust, as the stakes get dangerously high. When events build to a frenzied climax, Trevor fears he’ll lose everything he holds dear—his sister and the love of a lifetime.

Park City Firefighter Romance by Cami Checketts

Captain Cameron Compton is content with his job as a firefighter and coaching a youth lacrosse team. He doesn’t need or want anything else in his life. Then a tall blonde schoolteacher parks her Jeep illegally in front of a fire hydrant, and one of his crew soaks it with water. Repentant but un-intimidated, she fires back at him, and he’s pulled in by her spunk.
Sage Turner has wished her entire life that she could shrink to a normal-sized woman. She hides her insecurities pretty well, but when she falls for a hot firefighter, she’s certain she’ll never be good enough. 
Stranded together at her cabin, sparks start to fly, and Sage barely suppresses the urge to kick him out in a snowstorm.
A fire and a moose attack should bring them together, but instead, they might sever any hope of being rescued from the flames or loneliness.
