Publication: July 30. 2015

She’s his best friend’s little sister. He’s the biggest player of them all.
They shouldn’t be together. But this summer’s just too tempting.

Sixteen-year-old Emilia Moretti’s goal for the summer is simple: forget her brother’s best friend—Nick Grawsky—ever existed. It should be easy: He’s spending his summer in the Hamptons, adding girls in tiny bikinis to his list of broken hearts. Guarantee he won’t be telling them they’re like his little sisters.

She’ll need flawless ballet movements to have a shot at next year’s showcase, and she’s finally ready to search for her birth parents.

As long as she doesn’t get stuck believing in happily ever after…

Nick is tired of pretending to be the happ…

BLOG TOUR: A School for Brides by Patrice Kindl

The eagerly awaited companion to the award-winning Keeping the Castle.

The Winthrop Hopkins Female Academy of Lesser Hoo, Yorkshire, has one goal: to train its students in the feminine arts with an eye toward getting them married off. This year, there are five girls of marriageable age. There’s only one problem: the school is in the middle of nowhere, and there are no men.

Set in the same English town as Keeping the Castle, and featuring a few of the same characters, here’s the kind of witty tribute to the classic Regency novel that could only come from the pen of Patrice Kindl!

Limerick #4
Once there was a secret lover; In silence and stealth he did hover.   He sent the lass a letter   But alas! she liked him better With his person and his prose undercover.

Limerick #5
A SCHOOL FOR BRIDES is a book; I’m hoping that you’ll take a look. It’s not too short nor t…

4.5 Stars!

In this sexy conclusion to The Superlatives trilogy from Endless Summer author Jennifer Echols, Sawyer and Kaye might just be perfect for each other if only they could admit it.

As vice president of Student Council, Kaye knows the importance of keeping order. Not only in school, but in her personal life.

Everything Kaye has accomplished in high school; student government, cheerleading, stellar grades; has been in preparation for that future.

To his entire class, Sawyer is an irreverent bad boy. His antics on the field as school mascot and his love of partying have earned him total slacker status. But while he and Kaye appear to be opposites on every level and their friends keep conspiring to throw them …

If We Were Having Coffee: A Personal Post

Jamie, over at Perpetual Page Turner has done a few of these If We Were Having Coffee posts and like she said, sometimes we forget that there is more to a person (and their life) than what you see in a single blog post or 140 characters. Lately, it seems a lot of people using social media have forgotten there is an actual human beingbehind the keyboard.
So, grab your beverage of choice, have a seat and let's chat.
FYI: Objects in picture are not as golden or crazy-eyed as they appear IRL.

By the way, if we were actually having coffee together there is a 99.9% chance cupcakes would be involved too, like these...

I'll stop teasing you now. 
If we were having coffee I would tell you I am tired. All the time. And I hate it. If you've followed me for any length of time, or know me IRL, you're aware that I suffer from migraines. Trust me, I am just as sick and tired of hearing myself lament about them as you are. Back in the fall, my Neurologist…
