Introducing Sunsets At Seaside by Addison Cole... *GIVEAWAY*



Dive into the Newest Sweet with Heat Romance!





SUNSETS AT SEASIDE






Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers #4


Addison Cole


Releasing Aug 23, 2017




Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and
practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she
escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in
Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to determine if she is living life to the fullest or
missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world,
billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape
and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his
plans.

From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused
Jamie can think of little else than sweet, smart, and alluring Jessica, and
Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie’s
business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he
proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make
matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is,
turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down. In a world where personal
information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his
heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

Sunsets at Seaside is the sweet edition of

the steamy romance novel Seaside Sunsets
by Melissa Foster.

Named Best Book of the Month by Amazon and iBooks 






READY TO RUN

I Do, I Don't #1

Releasing Aug 22, 2017


Loveswept




The Bachelor meets The Runaway Bride in this addictive romance novel about a reality TV producer falling for her would-be star: a Montana heartthrob who wants nothing to do with the show.

Jordan Carpenter thinks she’s finally found the perfect candidate for Jilted, a new dating show about runaway grooms: Luke Elliott, a playboy firefighter who’s left not one but three brides at the altar. The only problem? Luke refuses to answer Jordan’s emails or return her calls. Which is how she ends up on a flight to Montana to recruit him in person. It’s not Manhattan but at least the locals in Lucky Hollow seem friendly . . . except for Luke, who’s more intense—and way hotter—than the slick womanizer Jordan expected.

Eager to put the past behind him, Luke has zero intention of following this gorgeous, fast-talking city girl back to New York. But before he can send her packing, Jordan’s everywhere: at his favorite bar, the county fair, even his exes’ book club. Annoyingly, everyone in Lucky Hollow seems to like her—and deep down, she’s starting to grow on him too. But the more he fights her constant pestering, the more Luke finds himself wishing that Jordan would kick off her high heels and make herself comfortable in his arms.

Keeping My Writing Fresh...




The market is full of romance books – mainstream romance, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, medical romance, cowboy romance…the list goes on. So how does a romance writer attempt to stand out from the crowd? To keep her or his precious readers interested and anticipating their next release?

I am lucky enough to write three romance sub-genres for two different publishers – I write Victorian romance for eKensington/Lyrical press, mainstream romance and romantic suspense for Harlequin Superromance. The fact that I get to alternate between the three keeps me interested as a writer and, I hope, keeps my readers looking forward to seeing what type of romance releases next.

As I am currently writing my twenty-second novel, the issue of what keeps my writing fresh is a big one. I hope because I live so close to where my Victorian books are set and that Bath is a different city from London, I can bring a different feel and atmosphere than many other historical romances.

For my contemporary work, I am the first author to have books in the Harlequin Superromance line with all British characters in a British setting. Again, I hope this makes my books different than others on offer.

As for the stories themselves? My Victorian romances tend to focus on the lower classes and their problems, rather than balls, dances and upper class propriety. I like to research how the ‘real people’ lived in the late 1800s. The problems they faced, the changing world around them, domestic changes, moral changes, the fact that more and more women wanted to stretch further than keeping a nice house and a happy husband. I like that I am building a reputation for writing darker historical romances and the feedback from readers and reviewers has given me the confidence that there is a space in the market for me and my work.

The Harlequin Superromance line runs to 80,000 words so are the biggest of Harlequin lines. There is room outside of the central romance to explore. I have touched on domestic abuse, money laundering and drug abuse––issues you wouldn’t normally expect between the pages of a romance novel!


I personally feel that romance writing has as much scope and freedom as any mainstream novel…as long as the relationship of the hero and heroine is always at the forefront. I hope you try one of my books!

willing to risk all to uncover the secrets that would save her sister. But
submitting to the duke’s peculiar brand of discipline surprises her with a
heady mixture of pleasure and pain. Eager to relinquish control of her messy

his kisses without revealing her true identity and darkest secrets? And what
punishment will she face when he realizes her betrayal?

One night changes everything, putting their friendship—and their love—on the line.






SWEPT INTO LOVE





The Ryders #5


Melissa Foster


Releasing Aug 16, 2017


World Literary Press


It’s been years since Sally Tuft’s husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son
alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she’d ever wanted
that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally
has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and
coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been.

Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they
would finally explore the passion that’s simmered between them since the day
they met. Tasked with opening a new youth center in Oak Falls, Virginia, Gage
hopes the trip away is just what they need to finally come together.


Before Gage and Sally ever reach Oak Falls, one night at a conference changes everything,
putting their friendship—and their love—on the line, and the two must decide if
getting swept up in love is the beginning of forever, or the end of their
friendship as they know it.
