by Abby Crofton
Carly Branning has gotten used to cleaning up the messes of Hollywood legend Cybil Caron and her lovable but scandal-prone family. But she’s never worked with Tess, the eldest Caron sibling who is not like the rest; she’s a science nerd whose work is poised to revolutionize the world. She also looks great in a tux, much to Carly’s consternation.
When Carly is ordered to work with Tess on a campaign for a prestigious scientific award they disagree about almost everything. But as Carly and Tess spend time together both in and out of the lab Carly realizes that Tess has a heart just as big as her brain.
Falling in love with the boss’s daughter is probably a bad idea. Even if she’s sexy, sweet, and makes a perfect lasagna.
Mistress: Book 4
by Anna Stone
Available in Kindle Unlimited
A headstrong bodyguard. An heiress who expects to be treated like a queen. A dangerously hot combination.
Bodyguard Carmen Torres is a professional. She gets the job done, she doesn’t get attached to her clients, and she does not mix business with pleasure. When she gets a job as personal bodyguard to domineering heiress Amber Pryce, she has no intention of breaking those rules, no matter how enticing she finds her client. But Amber has other ideas.
As the sole heir to the Pryce family fortune, Amber is accustomed to being treated like royalty. Anything she wants, she takes. That includes Carmen, the stubborn bodyguard Amber hired to protect her from a mysterious stalker. Amber is determined to have Carmen bow to her. And even though Carmen won’t allow herself to admit it, she craves the sweet surrender that Amber commands.
Engaged in a fiery game of seduction, tensions heat up between the two women. But with an unhinged stalker on Amber’s trail, the stakes keep rising, putting both women’s lives at risk, along with their hearts.
Don’t miss the fourth book in the sizzling-hot Mistress series. Each book in the series can be read alone.
by E. J. Noyes
Avery Weston is doing fine.
Sure, she’s not doing as fine as her ex―award-winning actress and current television It Girl, Elise Hayes―but Avery enjoys her work as a Federal Air Marshal and also enjoys almost being over Elise walking out on their relationship fifteen months ago. Until Elise is seated next to her on a flight, and the emotional progress Avery thought she’d made is reset in an instant.
Just like their first flight together, this one also has some bumps. But this time they don’t have to make a go around for a safe landing; they just have to deal with an overzealous fan threatening Elise. And when Elise comes begging for a place to stay until the stalker situation is resolved, Avery has to agree it’s the perfect solution to keep Elise safe. After all, nobody knows Elise Hayes used to have a girlfriend.
It’s only for a few weeks, what’s the harm? Except for some tiny issues, like when you’re still kind of in love with your ex and the mutual spark is as strong as ever, it’s easy to fall into familiar habits. Then there’s Elise’s apologies and genuine regret over leaving, which makes it hard for Avery to hold on to past hurts and sends her simmering emotions to a boil.
But love and sparks aren’t always enough. If Avery and Elise can find a way to move past everything that came between them last time, maybe they’ll get a chance to go around and try landing their relationship again.
Oregon: Book 5
Together, Luke and Nora survived the hardships and dangers along the Oregon Trail in 1851. What started out as a marriage of convenience between a woman living as a man and a former prostitute slowly grew into love.
But now that they have arrived in Oregon City, the real adventure is just beginning. Winter is approaching, and they need to claim a piece of land and build a cabin, all while trying to establish their new roles as life partners and parents.
Will they find a place to call home and, more importantly, a way to grow as a couple?
“A Place to Call Home” is a permafree lesbian historical romance short story that continues Jae’s award-winning Oregon series.
Reader Karen L recommends “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves.
(This is a favorite of TB’s partner, so extra points to Karen!)
Author Clare Lydon shares a valuable piece of advice: Never lick a steak knife.
(Clare’s sense of humor is why she is TB’s first call when in dire need of a chuckle. Clare never lets TB down.)
This is Viola and Victoria, a reader, lives to serve her feline master. Who could say no to Viola’s adorable face?
That’s all for this week.
Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!
