Blazing into August...

First off I’d like to wish Fresh Fiction a Happy Anniversary. On August 4, 2009, they will be celebrating 5 years. Thanks so much for allowing me to be apart of this amazing team. You guys really do bring the latest news and book releases to life for us readers! Keep up the good work…and wish you another 5 successful years!

Harlequin NASCAR


Becky Peters learned she had been adopted, ever since then she has been dreaming and wishing she could find her birth parents. Then a prominent NASCAR family reveals their daughter was kidnapped at birth, it gives Becky some hope. Could she dare to believe she was a Grosso?

Jake McMasters, a private investigator is certain he is more trouble than he can handle when Becky walks into his life. He suddenly feels very protective of her and will do anything to keep her safe. Especially from those who are trying to keep their secrets safe.

Can Jake keep her safe? Will Becky ever find out about her birth parents and the truth about what really happened years ago?

Harlequin Blaze

There were so many good books this month for Blaze. I really couldn’t pick one; you have books from my favorite authors, Joanne Rock, Kathleen O’Reilly, Jill Shalvis, and Tori Carrington. So I’ve decided to host a book from an author whose work I have never read before.


I read the blurb of this book and thought, this sounds like a great read. Then I read the excerpt offered by eharlequin.com and was blown away.

When matchmaker Margot Roth is hired to find a date for the mother of a playboy millionaire, an erotic fling is the last thing on her mind. Well, maybe not the last thing. Clint Hilton is the sexiest man she's ever met, and she has to admit naughty things go through her mind when he looks at her with his sultry eyes.

But now that Clint is there to turn her fantasies into reality, Margot isn't sure if giving in to temptation is the best idea—even if he's determined to share his bed with her…or something more.

Harlequin Presents


This sounds like such a great read. I love animals and I love romances that revolve around animals.

Dynamic and drop-dead gorgeous, Sydney millionaire Mitch Stuart will be president of his family's empire in just two weeks—and he won't allow himself any distractions…. Enter Vanessa Craig!

Vanessa is working hard to keep her business afloat, although she can't help but care more about the pets in her store than pennies in the bank.

Mitch steps in to help her in the only way he knows—financially. But Vanessa's bewitching body threatens his hard-and-fast coporate rule: never mix business with pleasure…

Silhouette Nocturne

Silhouette Nocturne is really becoming one of my all-time favorite series of books. I’ve always loved vampire stories, but I’m starting to really enjoy other shape-shifters as well.


Joe Ryan's lion heart is as rocky and impenetrable as the Arizona mountains he protects. Although no one could ever prove that the muscular Sentinel agent was involved in his former partner's death, Ryan's dark reputation—and ferocious cougar form—spells danger to the unwary.

Lyn Maines is a woman on a mission. The dark-eyed shape-shifter has come to root out corruption, but she quickly discovers she's vulnerable to Ryan's leonine power. As they hunt the rocky peaks, seeking proof of Joe's innocence— or guilt—can she trust her instincts about the proud, tawny loner? Especially when her judgement is overwhelmed by the wilder urgings of her heart.

Silhouette Desire

ONE NIGHT WITH THE WEALTHY RANCHER by BRENDA JACKSON Texas Cattleman's Club member Darius Foster is tired of women chasing after his millions. But his jaded heart is about to get a jump-start. The wealthy rancher never expected to see Summer Martindale in his part of Texas. Darius was still trying to forget that incredible night they'd spent together…a night that never should have happened. Certain she had relocated just to get close to him—and his money—the ex-lawman vowed to keep his distance. But when danger came calling, Darius knew he was the only one who could protect Summer. And that meant getting closer to her in every way!
