What's Two More Books For Your TBR Pile?--More Bliss

Romance reads keep my world going around and around in happy bliss.  There's nothing better than sharing that vibe with you in the form of my book recommends.

To my reader-holics, I know your TBR is bubbling over with gems. But what's one, maybe two more for your unforgiving appetite.

First up -- Phyllis Bourne's Between A Rock and Hot Mess. The title alone should tell you that it's going to be filled with humor. Phyllis writes great romantic comedy and is one of Romance Writers of America 2016 RITA finalists in contemporary romance.

Riley Sinclair has man problems. Trouble is, everyone has one but her. 

After years on the sidelines at weddings, the head of Sinclair Construction now sits home alone on what used to be girls night. Her only companions are television, a bottle of wine and a crush on a stranger she doesn’t have the guts to approach. Too bad she isn’t more like the daring heroine of her favorite show Hot Mess. Men want to bed and wed the glamorous Delilah Cole, while rough-around-the-edges Riley is relegated to the friend zone. 

Enter the perfect solution - an interactive app where the star of Hot Mess dishes style, beauty and relationship advice guaranteed to transform any woman into a man magnet. Riley re-invents herself, and thanks to the app, is on the brink of landing her dream man…and another she didn’t count on. Soon Riley’s embroiled in her own hot mess and has to choose between the Cinderella fairytale with the man she wants or the soul deep passion found only in the arms of the man she needs. 

In The Arms of A Donovan is A.C. Arthur's latest installment of the widely popular Donovan series. But I'd also recommend starting with Heart of A Donovan to catch up on the ongoing plot line. And if you're into sexy shapeshifters, then check out her series with St. Martin's Press - The Shadow Shifters.

When the safest place she knows… 

The last year of Amber McNair’s life has been a whirlwind of jet-setting back and forth across the country, smiling for the cameras and speaking on behalf of full-figured women worldwide. While grateful for the opportunity to become a national foundation’s spokesperson on the growing obsession with body image, Amber is exhausted and hasn’t had a moment to enjoy herself in far too long. The final leg of the promotional tour being held on a seven night cruise was a godsend. The sexy guy on the boat that takes her breath away from the first second she sees him, is a delicious perk; but Amber’s been heartbroken before, so this time, she’s not so sure she should indulge. 

…is in his arms. 

Brandon Donovan is at his company’s annual morale-boosting and celebratory event. After years of attending the boring weekend-long stays at some secluded resort, this time, Brandon finds himself on a Caribbean cruise. Timing could not be worse for him to be somewhat off the grid, considering what he and his cousins have just learned about the Senior Donovans, but meeting the charming and beautiful spokesperson for a national company is refreshing. Spending a sultry and sensual night with her was more rewarding than he could have ever imagined. Until he learns that she may not be who she says she is and that her true identity may lead him to the man who claims to be a Donovan. 

Enjoy!  Happy Reading.

P.S. I'm working hard on my next project. Stay tuned.
