Playing the GameSince being drafted by the NHL to play for his home team at age nineteen, Derek Backhard has had everything he's ever dreamed of - unrivaled MVP mentions, countless goals and assists, even being compared to the great one. Holding the power to control his future in the palm of his hands, nothing stood in his way.
Until the unthinkable happened, and everything about his life shifted. Past priorities fell away the moment he held baby Ryder in his arms mere moments after losing his close friend, and Ryder's father, Brad.
After weeks of watching Liz fall apart over the loss of her husband as she struggled to adjust to life as a single parent, Derek vows to give her and Ryder everything they deserve, creating a life he never knew he always wanted.
Rocked to her core by her changing feelings for him, Liz doesn’t know what to do with Derek or his offer. Uncertainty swirls within her as she leans on her lifelong friend during the hard times, but how much of his attention is real, and how much is pity?
Is she strong enough to let him in and let him take care of her, or will she force him away and back into the life she thinks he really wants?

Cover Reveal: The Contract by Melanie Moreland @MorelandMelanie @bloggerbees

Cover Reveal
The Contract
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Monark Design Services
 Release Date: May 24, 2016
Melanie Moreland lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-six-plus years. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

Known as the quiet one with the big laugh, Melanie works at a local university and for its football team.  Her job, while demanding, is rewarding as she cheers on her team to victory.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties,  and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip. 

Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after.  When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.

A tyrant by day, a playboy by night. That is the reputation that precedes Richard VanRyan. He lives life the way he wants, no concern for the opinion of others. He cares for no one, is completely unrepentant, and he has no desire to change his ways.
Katharine Elliott works under Richard as his PA. She despises him and his questionable ethics, but endures all the garbage he sends her way, because she needs the job. Her end goal is far more important than the daily abuse and demands she tolerates from her nasty tyrant of a boss.
Until the day, he asks her for something she never expected. A new role with a personal contract— fiancĂ©e instead of PA.
What happens when two people who loathe each other, have to live together and act as though they are madly in love?
That’s what happens.
Can the power of love really change a person?
Will they survive the contract?
What do you do when the one person you hate the most becomes the one person you can’t live without?

Guest Post: Swoon worthy moment with London Saint James and Trouble in Paradise @LSJRomance @RoanePublishing #giveaway @bloggerbees

I soooooo love this author and am SUPER excited to have London Saint James with us today  :)

Give us a swoon worthy moment with excerpt
This scene is after Sutton has decided to go out. Have some fun for a change. Blow off some steam. One of the things she really wanted to do was dance with a sexy cowboy, but she has a run-in with an asshat at the bar. Her ranch foreman intervenes on her behalf. So, her night was cut short when Flint takes her home.


“I’ll get your door,” Flint said, breaking the silence. “Sit still.”

Sutton should have expected the man would want to be chivalrous in his bossy way.

“I never got to dance,” she uttered.


“Tonight,” she said, head swiveling to look at him. “I never got to dance.”

Flint hopped out of his pickup, came around to her side, opened the door, waiting for her to undo the seat belt and gave her a hand.

When her boots where on the ground, his gravelly voice came to her with, “Let’s dance.”

Her eyes went wide. “Really?”

He nodded. “Why not?”

Sutton watched him as he stretched himself inside his still running truck, and over the seat, reaching the knob on the radio. Flint turned it on and up.

The DJ’s voice echoed into the night. “…going back in time with the Cowboy Junkies and Sweet Jane.”

When the sultry song began, Flint was in front of her, tugging her away from the open truck door and pulling Sutton into his strong arms.

She glanced up into his handsome, partially shadowed face. “Maybe this isn’t a good idea.”

“Probably not,” he agreed.

Four thoughts struck simultaneously. First, the large palm slipping down the material of her sundress, slowly following the line of her spine, and coming to rest just shy of the legal limit above her ass—possessed her. Second, whatever type of cologne Flint was wearing smelled good enough to lick from his skin. Third, the man could dance. And fourth, no way could she ever forget this.  

With a breath, Sutton melted into Flint, cheek resting on his steel-hard chest, her right hand in his, her left arm around his taut waist. Soon, she was losing herself in the rhythm of their bodies as they swayed together beneath a velvet-black sky filled with a million pin-pricks of sparkling light.

Trouble in Paradise
Paradise Ranch Book 2

London Saint James

Roane Publishing, 237 pages
Contemporary Erotic Western Romance
Multiple Partners, Suspense

If you know what’s good for you, you’ll go back to Dallas.

Since coming home Sutton has inherited herself a heap of headaches, two bossy men who want her for their own, threatening notes, and a whole lot of trouble in Paradise.

Having Doc McNab as competition, being ten years Sutton’s senior, and under her employ, meant the deck was stacked against Flint Palmer when it came to winning the sexy, vivacious Sutton as his woman. No way would she be interested in an old, worn-out, ex-rodeo cowboy like him, but that wasn’t going to stop the man from trying.

With the exception of the pretty as a picture, Sutton Callaway, Kale McNab’s childhood sucked. He’d been jerked up more so than raised by his ex-convict of a father, eventually leaving the girl and West Texas behind. Now, he’s all grown and back in Sutton’s life, willing to do whatever it takes to stay there.   

Genre(s): Contemporary Erotic Western Romance, Multiple Partners, Suspense, Spanking, Series

Please Note: This is the novel length book following the introductory novella Welcome to Paradise in the Paradise Ranch Series
