5 Things About Lizbeth Selvig

Okay, she had me at “Brit.” As in the title of her new book, Beauty and the Brit. Look at that cover! What’s not to love? Let me introduce you to one of my fellow Avon Authors, Lizbeth Selvig. 1) Did you have a nickname growing up? My family (started by a beloved auntie) called me LittleBit, which sounds hilarious to my mind now at my age and weight. Also, I met my husband at the “tender age” of fifteen, and from that day to this he calls me Lizard. 2) How do you pick the names of your Heroes/Heroines? Oddly enough naming a character is rarely difficult for me—it’s one of the few things that, most of the time, pops into my head. When I am stumped, I troll baby name sites. I do keep a name list, especially for last names. I keep a physical phone book at...

Review of COVERING KENDALL (Love and Football #4) by Julie Brannagh

"One night, and we'll both go back to our lives. It'll be our little secret." - Kendall Covering Kendall Series: Love and Football # 4 Author: Julie Brannagh Publisher: Avon Impulse Release Date: October 21, 2014 Source: Publisher (via Edelweiss) Purchase Links: Amazon - B&N - Kobo - iTunes Add to Goodreads Kendall Tracy, General Manager of the San Francisco Miners, is not one for rash decisions or one-night stands. But when she finds herself alone in a hotel room with a heart-stoppingly gorgeous man-who looks oddly familiar-Kendall throws her own rules out the window…and they blow right back into her face. Drew McCoy should look familiar, he’s a star player for her team’s archrival the Seattle Sharks. Which would basically make Drew and Kendall the Romeo and Juliet of professional football…well, without all the dying. Not that it’s an issue. They agree to pretend their encounter never happened. Nothing good can come...

First Excerpt For Sinful Rewards 5

This post has adult content. If you are under the age of eighteen years old and/or sensitive to adult language/situations, please do not read this post. Here is a first excerpt for Sinful Rewards 5. (grins) *** “Hating Cyndi won’t make your mistake disappear.” “Nothing will make it disappear.” Nicolas tugs on his hand. “I should leave.” I grip his fingers tighter, holding on to him. “You’re not going anywhere, Mr. Rainer.” I pivot on my bare heels and face him. He avoids my gaze, his expression bleak and his lips flat. “You promised me I’d have twenty minutes of your time.” “Do you want twenty minutes of my time?” Nicolas asks. “I’m not a nice person, Bee.” The anguish in his voice makes my heart twist. “You heard what I did.” I release his hand and slide my palms over his chest, the fabric of his suit luxuriously soft...
