Summary:

Mateo Lopez, honorably discharged from the Marine Corps on medical leave, is struggling to rebuild his life. The spinal cord injury that left him feeling like a broken man resulted in his inability to ride the horses he loves and works with on Round Top Ranch.

The new horse trainer at the ranch, however, has decided that this isn’t acceptable. Claire Windsor, a spirited, London-born spitfire of a woman, has come to begin a new program to turn the horses into therapy animals. She turns Mateo’s world upside-down, and try as he might to avoid her, she keeps inserting herself into his life. As their plans for the ranch clash, so too do their hearts…making all things fair in love and war.

The judge has a long reach, and if he finds out Jordan’s turned on him, he might impede Jordan adopting his son, Jeremiah.

When Jordan can no longer stay silent, he gathers his courage and tells Pierre what he knows. To his surprise and relief, Pierre believes him, and Jordan finds an ally… and maybe more.

But Crawford is a powerful and dangerous enemy, and he’s not above ripping apart everything Jordan and Pierre are trying to build in order to save himself….

Friday Feature, Interview & PRINT Giveaway: Slammed by Victoria Denault

It is my pleasure to welcome Victoria Denault to Book Reviews & More by Kathy. I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to join us here today.

Kathy: Can you tell us a little about your new release, Slammed?

Victoria: Slammed is an opposites-attract, forbidden romance. Dixie is a PR dynamo who wants to impress them team owner and move up in the organization. Eli, a goalie on the junior team, wants to get over the serious injury he suffered and prove he deserves a shot in the NHL. When they get stuck in a broken down elevator together sparks fly but giving in to the attraction means risking their career goals. Throw in a little family drama on both sides and it starts to get really complicated.

Kathy: What’s one quality you admire in each of your main characters, Dixie and Eli?

Victoria: I admire Dixie’s close bond with her siblings and dedication to her family and I admire Eli’s sense of adventure and how he’s always trying to make people smile, especially Dixie.

Kathy: What kind of research did you do for the San Francisco Thunder series? Are you a huge hockey fan?

Victoria: I’ve been a huge hockey fan since I was a kid and it’s the only sport I actively watch/follow. Because of that I didn’t have to do much research about the sport, but I did do a lot of research on skate/cut injuries, like the one Eli suffered. That was hard because it meant watching a lot of horrific videos of players getting cut, but I wanted to make sure I got the details right.

Kathy: Eli is known for his cheesy pick-up lines in Slammed. Which one was your favorite?

Victoria: My favorite is actually one Dixie delivers to him. “You remind me of my big toe because you’re big and cute and I’ll probably bang you on my coffee table later.”

Kathy: Do you have a favorite book or author you like to recommend? Do you have a comfort read?

Victoria: I have SO many favorite books and authors it’s hard to recommend just one. Recently I read Most of All You by Mia Sheridan and I adored it. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I finished it. Other of my all-time favorites include Pucked Over by Helena Hunting and Try by Ella Frank.

Kathy: If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?

Victoria: I always wanted to be a high school English teacher, which is probably weird, but it was my high school English teacher that really cultivated and supported my love of reading and writing. It would be nice to be able to do that for other kids.

Kathy: What project are you working on next?

Victoria: I’m taking a break from sports romance and working on a few different things.  One ‘work in progress’ is a series about a family that’s been through something really horrible and is trying to put the pieces back together. The books focus on the siblings who are in college and how they find love after/despite what they went through.

Kathy: Thank you again for stopping by today. I am eagerly looking forward to reading Slammed and I am very intrigued by your work in progress!


Title: Slammed by Victoria Denault
San Francisco Thunder Series Book Two
Publisher: Forever
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Length: 337 pages

Summary:

Not every goalie plays it safe…>

As a publicist for the San Francisco Thunder hockey team, Dixie Braddock is too busy rescuing the players from trouble to get into any of her own. Except, of course, when it comes to the super hot new goalie. Because when a guy’s kiss curls your toes and sets your heart on fire, how the hell do you just walk away? But if anyone ever catches them together, she’ll lose her job faster than any slapshot.

Eli Casco is on the brink of having everything he ever wanted. He’s finally been called up from the minor leagues to play on a championship team. And he just had the most mind-blowing night with the woman of his dreams. But now that he’s an official Thunder player, Dixie is determined to keep her distance. None of the fame and fortune means anything to him without her to share it. If he truly wants Dixie in his life, it’s time to throw down his gloves and put everything on the line.

Winter Wonderland Giveaway #9: Back Home at Firefly Lake by Jen Gilroy

To help celebrate the upcoming holidays and keep you curled up inside with a good book where it’s nice and warm, I am giving an eBook a day away from December 1-December 24. Today’s eBook is:

Title: Back Home at Firefly Lake by Jen Gilroy
Firefly Lake Series Book Three
Publisher: Forever
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Length: 368 pages

Summary:

A heartwarming small-town romance that will make you believe in love and second chances.

She has a million reasons to leave.
Can he give her the one she needs to stay?

Cat McGuire’s return to Firefly Lake is turning into much more than she bargained for. Sure, she missed the crisp pine-scented air and the comfort of having her family around her. But being home makes her feel less like the successful single mom she is–and more like the awkward teen who never fit in. It doesn’t help that hockey-pro Luc Simard is back in town, too. Luc was her childhood crush, the hometown hero who never noticed her, and yet somehow he still makes her heart skip a beat.

Luc’s homecoming has been bittersweet. He’s lost his wife and his career, but there’s no better place to start over than Firefly Lake. Coaching the local kids’ hockey team makes him feel alive again, and he thinks his life is complete–until Cat arrives. The shy girl he always wanted to protect is now the gorgeous woman who’s stealing his heart and making him believe in second chances. But how can he convince Cat that Firefly Lake is where she truly belongs?

In the tradition of New York Times bestselling authors Susan Wiggs and RaeAnne Thayne comes an emotional story about finding love in the most unexpected of places from Jen Gilroy.
