Cover Reveal: Covering Kendall by Julie Brannagh

COVERING KENDALL  by Julie Brannagh  On sale: 10/21/2014   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 from it anyway, right? Drew’s not so sure. Kendall may be all wrong, but he can’t stop thinking about her and he finds that some risks are worth taking. Because the stakes are always highest when you’re playing for keeps. Buy @

Review: Once More, My Darling Rogue by Lorraine Heath

Despite my love for Lorraine Heath and her historical romances the beginning of Once More, My Darling Rogue left me a little cold. This is the second book in the Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James series, which is a spin-off of the Scoundrels of St. James series and while I was excited to get Drake Darling’s (aka Peter Sykes) story, I wasn’t too thrilled with the choice for his love interest. Seriously, she is not nice when the story opens and in fact treats the hero like dirt underneath her feet. Not a great first impression. Lady Ophelia Lyttleton and Drake Darling have a dislike for each other that knows no bounds. She despises his common roots and thinks he ought to be reminded at every turn how far beneath her and every other member of the Ton he dwells, despite being taking in as a boy and raised in the Duke and Duchess of Greystone’s household....
