release date: March 20, 2017
Entangled Publishing, Embrace


I’m scarred. Broken. I’ll never be the same.
But I will take this journey.

Ever since my last dive ended in bloodshed, I’ve been terrified to go back into the water. But the opportunity to spend a semester at sea is too good to pass up. I need to get my life back.

I never expected to love it this much. And I never expected Tristan MacDougall.

Rugged, strong, and with demons of his own, Tristan helps me find the courage I thought I had lost and heals me with every stolen moment we share. But the rules of the ship mean we can’t be together.

When a dive excursion goes terribly wrong, our only hope for survival is each other.

My Review

After reading this book, I totally wouldn’t mind spending some time at sea!!

I’ll be totally honest, when I first picked up this book, I wasn’t 100% sure about it. I’ve never read anything by this author before, but the cover looked amazing and the synopsis sounded so good, I just had to pick it up and give it a chance. And let me tell you, I am so glad I did. From the moment I picked up this book, I was pulled into Tristan and Ari’s story. Ari had a love of the sea, but an injury had her questioning everything. However, she was determined to not let her fear rule her. Despite her concerns and fears, she jumps at the opportunity to spend a semester at sea. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime and one that she just can’t pass up. She’s hoping that with time, she can conquer her fears and reclaim her life….As a crew member of the Meg, Tristan has his own issues that he’s trying to escape. What he never planned on was Ari. While helping build confidence and heal Ari, Ari was also healing Tristan as well. They were only supposed to be friends, but with each day that passes, their connection would grow even stronger, giving way to a beautiful relationship. However, the road to HEA for these two will not be an easy one. Their relationship is forbidden and anyone finding out could put them both in jeopardy. Will Ari and Tristan find their HEA or will fate keep these two lovers apart?

A Star to Steer Her was a really great story. I was captivated from the moment I read it and fell in love with Ari’s story. Ari had so much to overcome, and I loved watching her character grow throughout the story. A Star to Steer Her is a beautiful story about growth, forgiveness and love. I thought this story was well written and I really loved the plot. I thought the characters were a lot of fun and very easy to connect with. I loved the build of Ari and Tristan’s relationship. They were amazing friends and I loved the tension that oozed between the two of them. They are the kind of couple that you can’t help but fall in love with and hope that they get a happy ending.

A Star to Steer Her is my first book by this author and it certainly won’t be my last. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

He held my hand as we glided slowly around the reef. The euphoria I felt at actually getting under the water faded as I squinted into the distant blue haze, on constant lookout for…anything that might be lurking out there. It was utterly silent, except for the Darth Vader-like sound of our breathing. That was one of the things I’d always loved best about scuba diving, the silence of it. For a short time, I could leave behind the noise of the world above and get lost in the alien world beneath the sea. I’d missed it so much.

My fear began to slip away. The reef was a huge mass of life and motion. Tiny yellow fish nibbled on purple sponges, vividly colored parrotfish pecked at coral with their sharp beaks, blue-and-yellow angelfish swam lazily between sea fans. None of them seemed disturbed by our presence. They just went about their business.

I’d almost forgotten Tristan was there until he tapped my arm and pointed to a big hole in the coral, where a slimy green head emerged on a sinuous neck. It was a moray eel. It stared at us, its mouth opening and closing to reveal glimpses of curved, needle-thin teeth. Novice divers tended to be afraid of them because their teeth looked wicked sharp. But I’d been around them enough to know that they opened and closed their mouths to breathe, not to be aggressive (usually), and I watched it for a moment, unafraid.

We continued exploring, my eyes remembering how to see beyond the camouflage to find the animal. A crusty “rock” sitting on the bottom was a scorpionfish. A mound of sand turned out to be a flounder. I still searched the blue waters around us, but less frequently than before. I even let go of Tristan’s hand.

Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a flash of silver. My heart started to pound. Take it easy, it’s probably a barracuda.

No, it wasn’t. Barracuda usually just hovered motionless in the water, seemingly menacing with their protruding teeth, but generally harmless to humans. This was moving quickly. And it was big. Where’d it go? I spun around.

There it was again, lurking just at the edge of my vision. Oh God, not again! Hiss-whoosh, hiss-whoosh. My breath came faster and faster.

I needed to get out of there.

About The Author

Beth Anne Miller’s first book, written in elementary school, was bound in pink fabric and was about—what else?—a girl and her horse. She soon began cheating on horses with the sea, becoming an open water scuba diver at age 14. That love of the sea led her to a college semester aboard a schooner. She returned with fond memories of the exhilaration of being on a ship under full sail, less fond memories of hurling over the leeward rail on a daily basis, and a sailing bug she couldn’t quite shake.

In addition to horses and the sea, she has a fascination for all things Scottish (including, but not limited to, men in kilts), which she explored with her first novel, INTO THE SCOTTISH MIST (The Wild Rose Press, 2011), and carried into her new novel, A STAR TO STEER HER BY (Entangled Embrace, March 2017). A native New Yorker, Beth Anne works in the publishing industry and is always looking ahead to her next voyage, whether a short one on a dive boat or whale watch, or, with luck, a longer one on a tall ship.

Release Blitz with Review: His to Seduce (Fireside #4) by Stacey Lynn


His to Seduce by Stacey Lynn
Publication Date: March 21st, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Loveswept



An honorable man who’s lost his way . . . A career woman who hides behind her button-up suits . . . Unexpected romance is the specialty at the Fireside Grill as Stacey Lynn’s captivating series comes full circle.

Becoming an ER doctor had been David McGregor’s mission ever since he could remember. But after tragedy strikes at his hospital in Chicago, David runs away from the guilt—all the way back to Latham Hills, Michigan, where he takes a job tending bar at his childhood friend’s restaurant. That’s how he meets Camden Reed, and the way Camden refuses to give him the time of day should be a turnoff. Instead, he’s drawn to her tough, tightly wound exterior, and soon David realizes that he has a new mission: to see her tightly wound beneath him.

Camden’s fighting tooth and nail to resist the desire she feels for David. Growing up dirt-poor, raised by a single mother, she worked twice as hard to get where she is today, and she doesn’t have any patience for the kind of guy who’d give up a decent paycheck to sling drinks. But when the sexual tension finally combusts between the sheets, Camden discovers that people aren’t always what they seem. As David pushes her past her limits, Camden begins to loosen up—and to trust that, when she falls, there will be someone waiting to catch her.

My Review

His to Seduce follows the story of Camden and David. Being an ER Doctor is all David has wanted. For as long as he can remember, that has been his dream. However being a doctor takes a lot of toll on someone and for David, the guilt that comes along with the job is almost unbearable. So, David has fled to Michigan to help out an old friend. The change of pace is welcome for him and it doesn’t hurt things at all when he meets Camden. There is just something about Camden. The pull almost impossible to fight…Camden is hard working and fiercely independent.  The last thing on her radar is David. She thinks she knows his story, but she couldn’t be more wrong. The tension between the two of them is intense and before Camden knows it, she’s a slave to her feelings for David. He challenges her and pushes her limits. Will these two take a chance on love or are they only destined for a fling?

Overall, I thought this was a great book. I was pulled into David and Camden’s story from the very first page. I loved the connection between the two of them and couldn’t wait for them to explore it. I loved how real both of these characters were and how easy they were to connect with. Their story captivated me and had me turning the pages quickly to see just how everything would play out.

His to Seduce is a wonderful addition to the Fireside Series.

Review: Crossroads (Wind Dragons MC #6) by Chantal Fernando


Ranger is at a crossroads: he has a chance to leave the motorcycle club and do something else with his life—but he keeps getting dragged back. When the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club asks for his help, Ranger agrees, not only because it is hard to say no to them, but also because he has a vested interest.

A woman is missing.

And Ranger knows her.

The Wind Dragons aren’t the only ones hoping this girl can be found—on the hunt is Johanna Chase, a stubborn detective who won’t give up until the missing woman is found safe. She needs Ranger to navigate the underground world of motorcycle clubs, and immediately, sparks fly. Ranger fights the attraction. He has no plans on going there, no matter how beautiful and badass she is. A biker and a cop? Ridiculous.

But the two of them soon realize that they’re in way over their heads, and now they have to trust each other in order to save her. With the WDMC and the police force at their back, it should be no problem, right?

My Review

A delicious and exciting addition to the Wind Dragons MC Series!

Crossroads is the 6th book in the Wind Dragons MC Series, but can be read as a stand alone novel. Crossroads is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Ranger and Johanna. Ranger and Johanna are the complete and total unlikely pair. Ranger is a biker and lives his life to the biker code. Johanna is a police detective. These two couldn’t be more different if they tried, but when a special case comes up, this unlikely pair will have to find a way to work side by side. Shouldn’t be too hard, right? Wrong. From the moment Ranger and Johanna meet, sparks fly and quickly turn into a raging inferno. They both try their hardest to fight the pull they feel towards one another. But, a connection like this, is one that will refuse to be smothered. The stakes are high and the obstacles are even bigger. Will this unlikely pair take the leap? There is only one way to find out….

Crossroads is an exciting and fast paced story. From the moment you pick up this book, you are sucked into Ranger and Johanna’s tale. One of the things I enjoyed about their story was just how unlikely of a pair these two were. I mean, they were as opposite as opposite can get. But, despite their differences, they made a really great team. They worked hard at building a trust between them. I appreciated the alpha male in Ranger. Not only was he a determined man, but he didn’t let arguments go. He believed in working through issues and finding resolutions. He was also very protective of those he cared about and refused to give up, even in the most dire of situations. And Johanna was tough as nails. She was also fierce and determined. She would stop at nothing to solve her cases, especially the one that she was currently working on. The road to HEA was not an easy one. It was filled with obstacles and drama. These two had a lot to work through to get to the ending they wanted…

Overall, I thought this was a really great read. This story was well written and fast paced. Definitely a book you could finish in one sitting. I enjoyed the characters and found them easy to follow and connect with. This story had just the right amount of drama, action, suspense and of course, sexy good times. Overall, a great read and wonderful addition to this series.

Review: Save Me (Sex, Vows, & Babies) by Tia Louise

Jessa Steel shoots to kill.
She does not fall in love.
She does not get captured.

Mason “Mace” Moscaretti can retrieve the worst of the worst.
No capo or drug lord is too clever to escape him.
When he meets Jessa embedded deep with a Colombian target, he’s determined to capture her heart and walk away from active duty.

And he does.

Six years later, Jessa and Mace are happily married, burning up the bedroom, and ready to start making babies when a job arises Jessa can’t resist. What she doesn’t know is this client won’t stop until they’re both dead.

My Review

Save Me was a ton of fun and fast paced read. This story is a novella, but I promise, it packs a punch.

Now because this story is a novella, my review has got to be short and sweet. Save Me follows the story of Jessa and Mace. Jessa and Mace are the ultimate tough couple. Action and Danger are a part of their life and who they are. They fight for what’s important and love even harder.

Once again, Tia Louise has provided us with an action packed, pulse racing, sexy story. Jessa and Mace’s story was a ton of fun and I loved their connection. Their story hit all the marks for sexy and entertaining read!

Review: The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher by L.D. Crichton


Pocket Star EBooks

Publication Date: March 13, 2017


A young woman desperate to outrun her nightmare reluctantly falls straight into the arms of the one boy who might be able to wake her up in this sweet and sexy debut about finding love while confronting your demons.

After Emma Fletcher is viciously attacked and left for dead, she flees to her old childhood hometown where she’s confronted with bitter memories of her damaged past and alcoholic mother. Emma is determined to make her stay temporary and get out with minimal emotional damage. What she doesn’t count on is Tristan Banks: auto mechanic, coffee addict, and town hottie with dark secrets of his own.

Tristan’s track record of saving girls has historically led to failure. The last thing he needs is trouble in the form of a leggy brunette with an attitude, but when he starts to fall for Emma, Tristan realizes the only way he can save her is to help her save herself.

My Review

The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher was a quick, but well written story. It follows the story of Emma and Tristan. From the moment we meet Emma, there is something a bit mysterious about her. Growing up, she couldn’t leave town fast enough. Now, she finds herself back home, after she was attacked. Her life forever changed in more than one way. She not only has to confront and face her future, but her past as well. The last thing she ever planned on was Tristan. Tristan has a past and secrets of his own, but there is just something about Emma that draws him in. He just knows one thing for certain, he wants Emma and will do whatever it takes to save her…

Overall, I thought this was a pretty good read. The story-line pulled me instantly. I was really intrigued by the characters and their pasts. They are the kind of characters that you want to know more about and can’t help but root for.

The Enchantment of Emma Fletcher is the debut novel for author L.D. Crichton, and I look forward to checking out more from this author in the future.

Release Blitz with Review: Devil You Know (Lost Boys #1) by L.A. Fiore

Title: Devil You Know
Series: Lost Boys #1
Author: L.A. Fiore
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 10, 2017


Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length.

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

My Review

“Three words and I was a goner. I didn’t understand what I felt for this boy nor did I appreciate the uniqueness of it at the time, but I did know that little smile and those three words was all it took for Damian Tate to claim a piece of me that I would never get back.”

“He curled his back, lowered his head and kissed me. Not a chaste kiss, a hot demanding and hungry kiss–a kiss that curled my toes and weakened my knees. He kissed me like he would die if he didn’t, and I kissed him back because I had missed this.”

I am a total and I mean total sucker for a good second chance romance and this one takes the cake. This second chance romance transcends half of a lifetime and will play with your emotions.

When we first meet our main characters, Damian and Thea’s story starts off just like any other love story. They meet as young kids and develop an amazing friendship that turns into something more. Over time, their connection and love turns into something bigger than the both of them know how to handle. So, they will separate, go their own way, grow and hope to one day find their way back to each other. Over the years, our two beloved characters will grow and change. They will have chance meetings that will leave them begging for more. They will share moments that will frustrate you as the reader and moments that will have you praying that they will finally get their timing right….

Devil You Know is an incredible and emotional story. The characters are raw and very easy to relate to. Their story will suck you in and leave you begging and I mean begging for more. It is a story that you won’t be able to put down and that will have you turning the pages faster than you could possibly imagine. Devil You Know is not an easy story to read. It toys with your emotions and at times may have you wanting to throw your kindle. This story will frustrate you. It will make you want to pull out your hair. It will give you hope and make you not want to give up. You will fall in love and your heart will ache. And just when you think that everything is on track, some great twists will be thrown your way. The suspense and mystery will have you glued to the pages, just as much as the romance will.

Devil You Know is an amazing story and one beautiful second chance romance.

Before I could scan the crowd for Damian, a hand wrapped around mine…one with cuts and blood on the knuckles. It was Damian and he looked pissed.

“What the fuck are you doing here?”

My heart hurt seeing his face—a cut near his left eye, blood smeared down his cheek and a blooming bruise on his jaw. “I heard you and Cam talking. I was curious.”

He had been walking me toward the exit but those words stopped him. His feet sort of rooted themselves to the concrete floor as his head turned in my direction. “So you walked here alone?”

“It wasn’t far.”

That wasn’t the right answer apparently because he hissed between his teeth. It wasn’t an actual word, just a release of frustration.

He started toward the exit again. “What are you fighting when you are out there?”

We had just reached the stairs when he pulled me behind them and pressed me up against the wall. “Come again?”

“When you fight, what are you fighting?”

“Not who am I fighting?”

“No, your opponent isn’t what you’re fighting.”

He leaned in and lowered his head to look me right in the eyes. “How do you know that?”

I gently wiped the blood from his face. “I know you.”

He had the strangest reaction to that. He closed his eyes, like he was in pain, and lowered his forehead to my shoulder. “This can’t happen.”

Those words caused a chill to move right down my spine. He was wrong. It totally could and should happen. “Why not?”

He lifted his head and for the first time I saw so much more in those eyes. “Cam is a good friend and your parents are like my own.”

“And?”His lips brushed along my jaw and I had to lock my knees to keep from sliding down the wall. “And if I did to you all the things I wanted, I couldn’t sit at their table without them knowing that I claimed every part of you.”

Review: Below Deck by Tara Sivec

below-deckDeclan McGillis can’t stand rich people. But working as a deckhand on a luxury charter yacht, he also can’t escape them. Declan has spent years kissing their ass and doing their bidding…whatever it takes to make his dreams come true, and nothing will get in his way of being the captain of his own yacht one day.

Things aren’t always what they seem, and not only does Mackenzie have the weight of her family’s struggles on her shoulders, she also needs to prove to Declan that she’s not the spoiled princess he believes her to be.

Declan can’t ignore the sparks of lust between them, even though Mackenzie is completely off limits and absolutely out of his league.

Mackenzie thinks a vacation fling is just what she needs to forget about the mess her life has become, and Declan is the perfect man for the job.

Will this be a quick romp in the water, or will it turn into something more when Mackenzie finally gets below Deck?

My Review

Such a cute, fun read. Just the right mood to put me in the summer frame of mind!

When we first meet up, Declan has a love/hate relationship with his job. He loves getting to travel, but hates having to deal with snotty rich people. This cruise sets off just like every other one, that is until he meets Mackenzie. While she may fit the bill of everything Declan hates, he can’t deny the pull that he feels to her. Declan knows that Mackenzie is off limits, but it turns out, she just might be what he needs. Will Mackenzie and Declan give in to the sparks that are firing between them? There is only one way to find out…

Below Deck was a quick and easy read for me. It’s the kinda book that is just fun to get lost in and has you lusting for your own vacation getaway. The characters are super enjoyable and easy to connect with. The chemistry between Declan and Mackenzie is intense and one to watch out for. The two of them have excellent pull and while they couldn’t be more opposite and had reservations when it came to love, a connection like their’s was destined to be explored.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was a lot of fun, well written and a story that I just couldn’t put it down. I loved all of the love/hate moments and the sparks that flew. I thought this book had just the right mix of fun, laughter, drama, romance and of course, sexy good times. This is the perfect story to spend the afternoon getting lost in.

“Feminists all over the world would be hanging their heads in shame at me right now, wouldn’t they? I’m weak and pathetic and easily forgiving of asshole behavior,” I complain to Brooke, leaning against the doorframe of our bathroom while I watch her apply make-up. “Tell me I’m weak and pathetic.”

Brooke sighs, pulling her face away from the mirror and lowering the mascara wand from her eye to stare at me in the reflection.

“I will do no such thing. You aren’t weak and pathetic. And you aren’t easily forgiving, either. You stuck to your guns and made him feel like a jerk. What you are, is easily distracted by a pretty face and a magic dick,” she informs me, turning around to lean against the sink.

“You’re right,” I whisper, my eyes widening with this sudden discovery. “I’ve always rolled my eyes at women in books who keep going back to the same asshole over and over again. It’s because of the magic dick. And now I get it.”

“The fucking magic dick,” Brooke agrees with a nod.

“But seriously, this doesn’t make me weak and pathetic that I forgave him so easily and basically threw my vagina at him in a challenge?” I ask as she turns back to face the mirror and finish applying her mascara.

“He explained why he did what he did. He was an assuming asshole, but he still realized he was wrong and fixed it. You accepted his apology and admitted you’re still in need of a good dicking, and he’s the closest available dick to give you said dicking. I see nothing wrong with that,” she shrugs.

“That was a lot of dicks in one sentence.”

“There are a lot of dicks on this boat. You think you’ve got problems? Ben is the best sex I’ve ever had and he’s a man-whore,” she complains, shoving her mascara tube back into her make-up bag and grabbing her bottle of perfume from the counter.
