Love on the Line
Women at Work Book 1
by Kirsten Fullmer
Genre: Women's Fiction, Romance

She’s an ordinary girl in an extraordinary situation.

Andrea left her comfortable home and her family to take a job building a pipeline with her estranged grandpa, Buck. She’s always been curious about his job, and why her mother dislikes him so much. She doesn’t expect, however, to uncover buried family secrets, for the job to be so difficult, or to be the only women on site. 

Rooster isn’t a bad guy. He respects women; he was raised by one of the best. But that new girl on the job is too small and feminine. She’s a distraction, plain and simple, and she doesn’t belong on a pipeline. This job is his chance to impress Buck Brennan, a pipeline legend, and no girly greenhorn or workplace romance is going to ruin it for him. 

Will Andrea prove herself to her grandfather and forge a relationship with the old man, or will continuous disagreements and unexpected sexual tension between Andrea and Rooster derail their hard work? Find out in this extraordinary coming-of-age story.

The Siblings O'Rifcan Series Book Tour: Giveaway for a $10 Amazon Gift Card


The Siblings O'Rifcan Series
Books 1- 5 Boxed Set
by Katharine E. Hamilton
Genre: Clean Contemporary Romance 

FIVE sweet romances in ONE boxset!


One family. Five incredible stories.

Claron
Tossing her belongings into a suitcase and escaping heartbreak seemed like the best idea for Rhea Conners. She’d simply travel across the ocean to visit her grandfather in Ireland and heal. Then she’d come back. Simple. But what she doesn’t expect is to find solace and healing in the form of the O’Rifcan family. One member in particular: Claron.

Claron enjoyed his life farming the land his grandparents gifted him. He lived his life quietly and contentedly, until Rhea arrived. He’d steered clear of relationships and entanglements since his last heartbreak, but something about Roland’s granddaughter twists him up inside. Something about Rhea has him rethinking his life of solitude.

Two hearts. One chance. Can Rhea and Claron overcome past hurts to make a new beginning?

Riley
Charm, beauty, and the promise of a new adventure had Heidi Rustler eagerly flying across the ocean to visit her best friend, Rhea Conners. Heidi needed a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a little excitement, and that is the promise that awaited her in Ireland. However, Rhea’s stories of the incredible family she’d come to know intrigued Heidi the most. Particularly the stories of Riley O’Rifcan.

Riley loved his life. He spent his days traveling for work, loving on his family, and flirting with feminine faces. He never once thought about settling down. Until Heidi. The bold and beautiful woman from Texas stampeded into his world and challenged his commitment-free and easy-going lifestyle.

Two hearts. One chance. Can Heidi and Riley recognize their opportunity for a new and different kind of adventure?

Layla
Beautiful, flirtatious, and charming are just a few of the words that describe Layla O’Rifcan, and she is proud of them. She enjoys the art of flirting and entangling the hearts of handsome men with her own. But with her eyes set upon starting her new business, she might just miss the one man that could change her life for the better.

Delaney Hawkins loves his job. Yes, he may work too much, but he is happy with the direction his life is headed. All until he meets Layla O’Rifcan. The spunky O’Rifcan sister who bewitches him from the start has him trying to balance work with what he hopes to be a budding relationship.

Two hearts. One chance. Can Layla and Delaney set aside their work and ambition to take a chance on love?

Chloe
Strong, sweet, and beautiful not only describes Chloe O’Rifcan but also the flowers she works with. As her brother’s wedding approaches, Chloe finds herself neck deep in wedding planning and projects that require the help of a dear friend.

Conor McCarthy is one of the closest friends to the O’Rifcan family, but he’s also a talented carpenter hopping from one project to the next. But when Chloe asks him to build an archway for a wedding prop, Conor finds himself working hand in hand with the youngest sister, and he can’t help but be impressed by Chloe’s skill and her sweet heart.

Two Hearts. One Chance. Can Chloe and Conor progress from family friends to more?

Murphy
Grit, determination, and independence had Piper O’Beirne setting her roots in Galway. The successful manager of one of the hottest pubs in the city, she never dreamed of moving or starting over. Until Murphy.

Murphy O’Rifcan loved his work. He spent all his time grooming his pub to be the best in County Clare. However, the hectic demands of the pub had him looking for help from the one person he knew he could trust, but the one person he knew did not want to move to Castlebrook. He found his professional pursuit of Piper twisted along the way and he wished Piper would accept the job for other reasons. Him.

Two Hearts. One Chance. Can Piper and Murphy learn to work together at the pub and in love?

Ragan's Song Book Blast: Giveaway for a Swarovski Crystal Bracelet

It only took one look into his eyes for her to know she was in trouble again.

Ragan returned home to celebrate her parents’ anniversary, hoping they would forgive her for the secrets she’s kept from them over the last few years. When she discovered that Adam was still living in Fairfield Corners, she hoped her secrets were safe -- secrets that drove her away three years, secrets that could change both their lives forever.

Adam Bricklin was devastated when Ragan Newlin left town. No note, no email, no text. She was just gone. It has taken three years for Adam to finally move past the heartbreak he suffered when Ragan left town. Now he’s moved on, and everything was going well until the day Ragan returned to Fairfield Corners. Now the melody that he lost all those years ago is back. It’s the same tune he heard that tells him right from wrong -- the one that sang Ragan was the one.

Even separation can’t silence Adam and Ragan’s song. Now that she’s back, it’s time for Adam to decide if he should let the song die or breathe life into it once again.

Love at Lakewood Med Book Blitz: Giveaway for a $20 Amazon Gift Card


Love at Lakewood Med
by T.J. Amberson
Publication date: June 9th 2019
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance
Savannah Drake would be thrilled about starting her final year of medical school if it weren’t for one thing: she has to spend a month working in the emergency room with cold, aloof Dr. Wesley Kent as her mentor. When her first day in the ER proves to be a humiliating disaster, Savannah is ready to swear off emergency medicine forever. Gradually, though, she finds that the unpredictable, emotional experience of caring for patients in the emergency room is affecting her far differently than she expected -- and Dr. Kent turns out to be anything but the arrogant attending physician that she assumed him to be. But just when Savannah finally admits to herself that she is falling for Dr. Kent, she learns that things at the hospital are not all what they seem. Faced with a seemingly impossible choice, Savannah must decide between her future career and everything that she has come to care so much about.



EXCERPT:

“Do you know what you just did?” Doctor Kent puts his eyes on mine.

I stare back at him, my body going cold. I screwed up somehow. That baby might die because of me. I may—

“You ran that resuscitation as well as, or better than, any resident in this hospital would have.” Doctor Kent’s gaze drifts toward Room Fourteen. “Most physicians—even experienced ones—would have understandably panicked around a sick newborn. You didn’t.”

I follow his gaze to the now-vacant room, and remain quiet, letting his words soak in. Once I gather my thoughts, I debate for a second or two before I get up the courage to admit to him:

“This sounds stupid, but I was so focused during that whole encounter that I almost didn’t realize what I was doing while it was happening. It was like I had an invisible shield around me, blocking out distraction and not letting my emotions affect me. Only after the baby was gone did I start feeling it all.”

Doctor Kent doesn’t reply. I blush and reluctantly turn to him again, feeling ridiculous. But Doctor Kent isn’t about to laugh at me. Instead, he has his eyes fixed even more intensely on mine.

“Welcome to emergency medicine,” he says.

I catch my breath as something powerful stirs within me. There’s a moment of unspoken communication between Doctor Kent and me, and then I glance around Fast Track once more. I think that I understand it all a little better now.

He’s everything she’s trying to avoid…But somehow precisely what she needs…

Caleb Crawford doesn’t want to be a duke. He’d much rather build houses for a living.

Ruined by a marquess who promised her the world, Mary Clemens has sworn to avoid marriage forever. Instead, she intends to live out her days with her friends and the orphaned children they’ve taken into their care.

Returning to Mr. Darcy Book Tour: Giveaway for a $25 Amazon Gift Card or eBook!


Returning to Mr. Darcy
by Sheena Austin
Genre: Time Travel Romance 

Elizabeth Bennet has the perseverance and heart of a warrior, but life has knocked her down and she has lost her spark. However, after a car accident and awakening to find herself back in time with a man who calls her his wife, she finally finds the spark she had lost. She realizes it’s time to stop being scared and embrace the impossible. 

Fitzwilliam Darcy is plagued with the possibility of his wife never recovering from amnesia. He shrugs off her odd habits as side effects of her accident. Distraught, he finds solace in keeping his distance at the bottom of a glass of whiskey. He assumes she has another lover, since she calls out for another man in the middle of the night, and when he sees her in the arms of another man, he is heartbroken, and finds it all too easy to sever what ties remain. When he comes to know the error of his ways, he wonders if Elizabeth could ever forgive him for his harsh judgment.

Goodreads * Amazon


Read an Excerpt!

After taking another sip of her hot chocolate, she closed her eyes, visualizing Mr. Darcy proposing to her. She accepted at once. Lost in her daydream, she played out the scene where she believed Lizzy went wrong in denying poor Mr. Darcy. Instead of denying him, she wrapped her arms around his neck, showering him in kisses. She pinned him to the floor, and he was compliant. She stared into his dark chocolate eyes.

Before she could carry out the rest of her fantasy, the sound of a door creaking open caused her heart to pound against her rib cage. Great. I’m going to be assaulted by an intruder right in the middle of a damn good moment. My obituary will read: Elizabeth Bennet. Killed while daydreaming of Mr. Darcy, she thought grimly.

When she opened her eyes, she jumped out of bed as she saw Jo standing in front of her, arms folded across her chest. She was all dolled up in a black eighties sweaterdress, heels, and fishnet stockings. Compared to Elizabeth’s Cookie Monster pajamas and bunny slippers, Jo was a knockout. Elizabeth’s reflexes kicked in, and she threw the book at Jo.

“Are you trying to book me to death?” Jo laughed.

“That’s what you get for scaring the crap out of me.”

“Well, I’m thankful it wasn’t something more lethal, like your phone.”

Elizabeth couldn’t help but laugh. “Why are you barging into my house, anyway?”

“That’s what you get for giving me a spare key. I can invade your privacy anytime I want.”

Elizabeth shook her head. “Okay, hand it over. You’re abusing your key privileges.”

Jo shook her head. “No way, José.”


Sheena Austin is the author of Returning to Mr. Darcy and Alexandria. A lover of all romance, fantasy, cat whisperer, and Kermit obsessed, the author currently lives in Virginia with her boyfriend and two cats.

Lacewood Release Blitz: Giveaway for an eBook or Audio Download

Women’s Fiction/Contemporary Romance
Date Published: 6/18/2019

Sometimes, love is just too powerful for one lifetime…

MOVING TO A SMALL TOWN in Virginia is a big change for New York socialite Katie McCain. But when she stumbles across an abandoned 200-year-old mansion, she’s enthralled by the enduring beauty of the neglected estate -- and captivated by the haunting portrait of a woman in mourning.

Purchasing the property on a whim, Katie attempts to fit in with the colorful characters in the town of New Hope, while trying to unravel the mystery of the “widow of Lacewood.” As she pieces together the previous owner’s heartrending story, Katie uncovers secrets the house has held for centuries, and discovers the key to coming to terms with her own sense of loss.

The past and present converge when hometown hero Will Durham returns and begins his own healing process by helping the “city girl” restore the place that holds so many memories. As the mystic web of destiny is woven, a love story that might have been lost forever is exposed, and a destiny that has been waiting in the shadows for centuries is fulfilled.

Part love story, part ghost story, Lacewood is a timeless novel about trusting in fate, letting go of the past, and believing in things that can’t be seen.

A powerful and poignant tale that vividly conveys the heartache of war, the tragedy of loss, and the fulfillment of destiny ... even when souls are separated by centuries. Lacewood takes readers on a journey that connects the past with the present—and the present with eternity.

Excerpt

Turning in a circle, Katie studied the room again. Faded wallpaper curled and peeled above the dusty wainscoting, but the walls themselves appeared sturdy. On the far side of the entryway, and dominating the wall, stood a mammoth fireplace with an ornately carved hearth. And above the mantle hung a captivating painting of a woman in nineteenth-century dress.

“Who is she?”

The sheriff turned to the dusty, sun-bleached portrait in the heavy carved guilt frame. “One of the previous owners, they say.” He shrugged. “The family history kind of got lost with the house. Everyone around here calls her the Widow of Lacewood.”

Katie stood spellbound. The woman was dressed completely in black, but the magnificence of the gown gave the impression of sophistication and class. Her chin was slightly elevated as if to project strength, yet there was more than a hint of sorrow and pain in her eyes.

“She looks so sad.” Katie spoke without removing her gaze. “And so young. How could she be a widow?”

The sheriff had already started to walk away, but he turned back and glanced at the painting. “Not sure, but they say she never remarried. She’s the one out in the cemetery, too, I reckon.”

Katie’s heart suddenly struggled to beat. The anguish in the woman’s eyes kept her riveted. She could see the pain. Feel a heart ripped apart. Something was missing that could never be replaced. Katie had felt such loss before. In a way, that’s why she was here.

“You coming?”

Katie heard the sheriff calling from the next room, and turned to follow. With one quick glance back, she noticed particles of dust now swirled and danced in a shaft of light, almost like a living thing. Her breath caught in her throat as the dust seemed to materialize into the form of a woman, her eyes dull with the same tortured despair and disbelief as the one in the portrait.

Katie jerked her head around for a closer look and blinked. The woman was gone.
