Add it to your Goodreads TBR here!

Christine would do anything to get away from it all.
After escaping an abusive marriage and heading up a group of brand new performers, she’s tired and in need of a vacation. So when her sister Sara wants her to go camping out in the mountains of Georgia with the girls, she packs her bags for some rest and relaxation. Not even meeting a gorgeous park ranger like Colton Donnelly is going to distract her.
Except Sara didn’t tell her the real reason for the trip: she’s running away from a terrible secret. One that puts all of their lives in danger.
Now the vacation that Christine so desperately needed is ruined, but that’s the least of her worries. She has to use her wits and skills to save them all. Because she soon finds out that werewolves are very real. And they’ll stop at nothing to get their claws into her sister.

Thirty four Going on Bride

Thirty-Four Going on Bride by Becky Monson

Julia Dorning is about to lose it. Between her over-the-top wedding that her sister, Anna, took upon herself to create, and the under-staffed popular bakery that she runs, she can barely find time to breathe. All Julia ever wanted was a quaint wedding on the beach with family and friends. But now Julia has to contend with not only her sister's plans, but those of her future mother-in-law, as well. Not wanting to step on anyone's toes, especially her mother-in-law's, Julia just goes along with it. She can only take so much, though, and when her newest employee, Kate, makes things harder at the bakery, Julia has to find a way to simplify her life. Can she do it or will she end up a basket case? Find out how she does it in this hilarious conclusion to the Spinster series!

Excerpt
“Pick it up, Julia! You can do this!”
I’m in the seventh circle of hell.
“Come on! Let’s move faster!” My sister Anna yells over the construction that we’re currently passing. As expected, we get a few whoops and whistles tossed at us from the workers. Pity flattery, I’m sure. Well, maybe not for Anna, but certainly for me. There’s absolutely nothing attractive about me right now.
To start, I don’t know if I’ve ever sweated this hard in my life. I look like I’ve taken a shower fully clothed. I’m sticky and perspiring, and it’s not even that hot outside. It’s a typical day near the end of May in Denver, Colorado. How did I let Anna convince me to do this? Oh that’s right, there was no convincing. She forced me. “It’ll be good for you,” she had said, lying through her devil teeth.
At this point I don’t know if my lungs will ever be the same. They actually ache with pain. And then there’s the ache in my calves, and really every other part of my body. Whoever thought of running as an extracurricular activity should be shot. A form of torture, yes. Exercise? I’d rather get a tooth pulled without Novocain.

Rachel Laine, The Women of Merryton Book 3 by Jennifer Peel, & $100 Giveaway!

Rachel Laine 

  Rachel Laine (The Women of Merryton #3) by Jennifer Peel 

 Rachel Whitney’s life changed forever when Drew, the son of her twin sister, Sydney, was placed in her arms—and there he stayed. At twenty-two, she had no idea what she was doing, but in that moment, she knew that raising Drew was what she was meant to do with her life. ​ Fiercely independent, Rachel makes her own way managing her family's insurance agency. Decidedly against introducing any men into her life, or Drew’s, she protects her heart against all romantic entanglements. But what she didn’t count on was a letter from her sister that leads a famous secret to her door eight years after her sister’s death. A secret with the same eyes as her son’s. ​ Desperate not to get the courts involved, Rachel allows Drew’s previously unknown father, Andrew Turner, into their lives, and to her surprise, little by little into her heart. But for Rachel, taking that step could open her family to a firestorm of media attention that not even Merryton can protect them from. Is love worth the risk? Or will Andrew's fame and ambition ruin their chances?
  amazon 
Excerpt:

With reluctance, I answered. “Hello.”
“Hey, Rachel Laine.”
 “Andrew, why are you calling?”
“If I didn’t know better, I would think you didn’t want to hear from me.”
“Imagine that,” I responded.
His laugh came through, loud and clear. “I wanted you to know I made it safely to Chicago.”
“Don’t take this the wrong way—” He laughed even louder before I could finish.
“—but why would I care?” I got in.
“Ouch. That hurts, Rachel Laine. You know, when I use that line on you, at least I follow it up with a compliment.”
“Yes, and I can’t tell you how nice it is to hear a man tell me all weekend he’s not interested in me.” “It wasn’t all weekend.”
“Why are you calling?”
“I wanted to check in with you, because of the weather.”
“That’s nice of you, but we only got a few inches, and we’re used to the snow up here.”
“Yeah … of course you are. So, what did you guys do today?”
“We went to church and then overdosed on super hero movies.”
“Sounds great.”
“It was.”
“Aren’t you going to ask how my day was?”
“Are you being serious?”
“It’s only polite.”
“Okay … How was your day?”
“It was horrible. My first flight got cancelled and then I had to wait for hours in the airport for the next available flight, and to top it off, I had to fly coach.”
“Oh, how terrible.”
“You’ve seen how long my legs are. They don’t belong in coach. And now I find out I could have been watching action movies with you guys all day.” Was this guy for real? I couldn’t tell if he was joking or not.
“And what makes you think you would have been invited?” “
Why do you think I would have waited for an invitation?”

Fresh Starts by Kimberly Krey & $100 Giveaway!

Fresh Starts 

  Fresh Starts by Kimberly Krey 

 Bree has had her fair share of difficulties. The loss of her parents, a not-so-recent divorce, and the disruption of her life caused by a stalker now who’s serving jail time. When the determined criminal finishes his sentence, Bree is sent into hiding. And while she’s doing all she can to steer clear of this frightening piece of her past, an old acquaintance enters the scene, determined to be part of her future.

  amazon 

Praise for Fresh Starts: "Fascinating characters, heartwarming and steamy romance, and chilling suspense make for one incredible read!” Reviewer, Ruth Josse “…all that you hope for in a gentle tug and pull of fearing the past and daring to hope for a better future. Kimberly Krey is masterful at helping us feel Bree's experience... Fresh Starts will keep you reading page after page until the heart stopping culmination.” Author Christene Houston “...believable and intriguing. And as always...steamy and clean!” Jamie Lynn

  add to goodreads 

EXCERPT: Her brother’s footsteps sounded down the hall. “You about ready to go?” Bree gulped, trapped in the mental mud of her mind. The part that held memories of her terrorized years. “Almost.” If the clock Mom gave her were still on the shelf, Bree would hear it in the quiet moment. The absence of it held a significance all its own. One she wouldn’t focus on then. “Come here, sis.” Braden draped an arm around her shoulder, pulling her in for a sideways hug. Bree hugged him back and stepped away before she could cry, squeezing her eyes shut to trap the tears. Tears from leaving the home she loved. Leaving the only sibling she had. Leaving her very own kids. “I wish there was a better way to ensure your safety.” His words were laced with a sense of burden that put a rock in Bree’s gut. “We just don’t know what Carl Ronsberg is capable of.” He glared down at the floor. “Or maybe we do.” Or maybe we do… Four words. Four words that – when used separately – were as harmless as a stray kitten. But when used with that name they were enough to shoot ice through her spine. Carl Ronsberg – the stalker she’d help put behind bars. The stalker who’d be out in just fourteen days.

Author Kimberly Krey Kimberly Krey specializes in writing "romance that's clean without losing the steam!" She's a reader of good, clean romance, a lover of family time and Diet Coke, and the ultimate hater of laundry.

Krey is author of the top-selling Sweet Montana Bride series, as well as its companion series, Second Chances.
