BitterRival_FrontCover_LoRes.jpg

Our families have been at war for generations; a bitter rivalry with no end in sight. All I’ve ever wanted to do was make wine, but one night with James will cost me everything.

I shouldn’t be attracted to him… but I am.

I definitely shouldn’t want to sleep with him… but I do.

Is following my heart worth the risk of losing my vineyard and my legacy?

Because in my family, there could be no greater betrayal than sleeping with the enemy.

I’m so glad I’ve popped my J. Sterling cherry! And to top the lot, the topic she’d chosen was really easy to relate to as I do appreciate a good glass or three of vino! I live in wine country and have visited many bodegas, so her descriptive narrative not only helped me connect to her protagonists, but also gave me the feeling of being in their backyard…oops, vineyard.

This low-on-angst-light-hearted love story is addictive reading and before I even knew it, I’d finished the book. The story behind a family feud really intrigued me, but it’s wearing one member’s patience thin in particular. So, why has it been going on for such a long time you may ask. And for different reasons, why is it affecting the younger generation of viticulturists to the point that they can’t be seen together? Firstly, as it’s not made clear what happened until nearly the ending, my imagination ran away with me and what I thought was the cause for such animosity was way off the mark. Secondly, James and Julia’s fathers’ refusal to speak about it doesn’t help matters and a no fraternizing with the neighbours rule aggravates the whole situation even more.

Enemies, James and Julia definitely are, but hate is a word too strong to describe their self-same feelings. Problem is you’ve got to be able to see which way the wind blows in more ways than one before you can get your bearings, and that’s exactly what was done. Well, there’s no denying the attraction was there, but past events in their childhood made one of them apprehensive.

James is a lovely guy with a great sense of humour. Hard-working and like Julia, dedicated to the family business, a selfless act on his part makes her realise she could have been fighting a losing battle. A real tease, he also takes great pleasure in rubbing her up the wrong way. She always seemed to me to be on the defensive which only adds fuel to the fire.

More detail about how their wines reached perfection would have been nice but all in all, it’s a well-written story with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Steaminess abounds ladies, so get your fans ready, too! Want an easy-to-read standalone with great character development, then Bitter Rival is for you. Bravo Sterling!

About J. Sterling

My goal is to write books that you can get lost in and stories that will leave you with a smile and a full heart. If you can forget about the real world while you’re reading and fall in love with my characters, then I’ve done my job. A lot of what I write has real-life aspects in it, but that’s what makes the stories so relatable- the fact that they could happen to anyone… and have!

I live in California with my son, Blake. If you can’t find me sitting behind a computer screen, then there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the bleachers of a baseball stadium watching him play. I love traveling to new places, meeting my readers and spending time with the love of my life, my very own second chance romance, who inspires me daily.

I know you have a million books to choose from and I am humbled, grateful and thankful each time you choose to read one of mine, or tell someone else to read them. Thank you.

EXCERPT REVEAL ~ HABITS by Anna B. Doe

Some habits are too
sweet to give up…

HABITS, a brand new standalone in the Greyford High Series by
Anna B. Doe is coming March 27th!

Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs

Goodreads

 

 

Senior year.Three girls. Three guys.Secrets and lies.

Demons of past and present.

Old insecurities and new fears.

One more year left to pretend.

One more year to wreck it all.

The countdown begins.

All Jeanette Sanders wanted to do was escape her past and forget everything that has happened. Coming to Greyford was supposed to be her new beginning, a clean slate. Only it seems like her past doesn’t want to let her go. As her old insecurities start to return in full force and lies grow bigger than ever, the only thing left is the hope that her broken heart will survive this time around.

Andrew Hill has been betrayed one too many times in the past. Cynical and cold-hearted, he closed off his heart for good and doesn’t plan on letting anybody in ever again. Especially women. But his heart doesn’t seem to care and starts beating faster every time a particular black-haired beauty gets in his way and puts him in his place.

He wants her body, not her heart. She tries to resist him, but the pull is too much.

They know they’re all wrong for each other, but some habits are too sweet to give up.

EXCERPT

Andrew Hill.

Partier.

Womanizer.

Daddy’s golden boy.

Hot-shot hockey player.

Cocky, presumptuous, but I have to give it to him, one smart son of a bitch.

He joins the rest of his teammates and friends, swagger oozing from every pore of his body.

His brown hair is messy and curls at the base of his neck. His lips curl into one of his well-known, arrogant smirks, revealing straight teeth. I’m standing too far from him to clearly see the color of his eyes or the lines of his face, but I know them.

I’ve touched them.

Andrew would look almost perfect if there wasn’t a slight bump on his nose. That small imperfection makes him look more rugged. More real.

His eyes always have this gleam in them. I’ve heard what people say. They call it mischievous, but I know better. I can see behind it.

I can see his darkness.

Because it matches my own.

GLASS CASTLE PRINCE by Nicole Williams is LIVE!


Today we are thrilled to be sharing Nicole Williams’ all-new contemporary romance,
GLASS CASTLE PRINCE

One-click your copy for the special release week price of ONLY $2.99!

 

A glass castle shatters as easily as a glass house—all it takes is one stone.

Prince Edward has known this all of his life, and taken staunch measures to ensure he doesn’t give the public any reason to pick up their rocks. Or torches. Or pitchforks. As a twenty-two-year-old in line to ascend the throne, he lives more like a cloistered monk than his college-aged peers. Restraint is the tone of his life, resilience the theme.

That is, until he meets a young woman who couldn’t care less about his title—unless she’s poking fun at it. Charlotte Everly grew up a stone’s throw away from the royal family’s summer house, but her life was, and is, entirely different from the prince’s.

They clash at each turn, disagree on every topic, and bear a general contempt for one another. Until . . .

One night, accompanied by one proposal, leads to one lapse in judgment . . .

Results in a nationwide scandal neither of them will escape.

Just when you think the first book in this duet was tumultuous, along comes the second and blows Depraved out of the water. Delivered has a trigger warning for a reason. This author does not beat around the bush when it comes to hard topics. Pain and misery seep from the pages as if the very fibre of the book is bleeding with the characters.

We start back where Depraved finished and the stakes cannot be any higher for JD and Gabrielle. Destruction and loss are not just physical, they are physiological.
I cannot remember the last time I became so invested in characters at such an early stage of the book.

“It was all this. You trying to repair my soul.” 

The way this author spun the tale, I found my own morality was called into question. Topics that I wouldn’t consider before were up for grabs because of something I read and how it affected the protagonists and me. For long moments, I questioned the devil’s work. One character was so purely evil I’m sure he bled black, not red. It was this particular person who had me wondering if murder was an option and could you escape prosecution from it. I know I wouldn’t look good in an orange jumpsuit, that’s for sure.

Gabrielle discovers so many revelations. Some so hard to bear they nearly knocked the breath out of me! Through it all, she has JD by her side. Even when she’s in so much pain, she can’t bear to have any human kindness. JD never backs off he’s beyond persistent and I love that about him.

‘Oh, JD. You are so complicated, and yet so predictable. Your concern for me, your love, often emerges in twisted misshapen forms, shrouded by darkness, but it is always light at the centre. It’s what has always drawn me to you. Like a moth to a flame.’ 

I have one more point to make. Smith. That man is a danger to any human with ovaries, and it looks like he’s getting a book real soon. Eeek!

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

A sexy single billionaire businessman. A YouTube star. And the hottest night of their lives.

When I first saw him, I thought he was too hot for his own good and too cocky to resist. The perfect rebound from my break-up from hell. So I threw my usual rules out the door and challenged him to an anonymous hook-up. No names, no strings attached.

It left me aching in more ways than one.

So imagine my surprise when I show up for the first day of my new job to find him leading the company’s annual meeting. We lock eyes through the crowd of employees, all the intensity from our hook-up like a live wire between us. And then he embarrasses me on purpose. Dick.

I just need to keep this job and make it big. I won’t let this arrogant hottie get to me or into my panties. But he is so powerful and sexy, that when he gets me in the elevator alone again, I know my plan is flawed.

ADVICE FROM A JILTED BRIDE by Piper Rayne is LIVE!

Today we are so excited to be sharing Piper Rayne’s all-new contemporary romance,
ADVICE FROM A JILTED BRIDE

 

What’s a girl to do after being ditched at the altar by text message? That’s right. Text. Message.

How does she pick up the pieces and move on? I’m no Dear Abby but here’s a little free advice…

Advice #1 – First, purge your apartment of all things him—by tossing his belongings off the balcony.

Advice #2 – Do not, I repeat do not, throw anything out into the hallway because you’ll injure your hot new neighbor.

Advice #3 – When said neighbor brings over Chinese Food do not let him stay and keep you company. It’s awkward when you realize he’s your boss.

Advice #4 – Accept his offer to help you with your side business but think twice before using a date to his sister’s wedding as collateral.

Advice #5 – Investigate who your mystery neighbor really is. Don’t trust his word even if he’s the world’s best kisser.

If you listen to nothing else, pay attention to that last one. It’s the most important and will save you a lot of heartache.

First impressions count, right? Poor Wyatt never stood a chance. Words do hurt more than stones, just ask Wyatt’s head. Last we saw Brooklyn Bailey, she was being left at the altar by her dirtbag fiancé. Douchey move for anyone to make but he did it in such a fashion that even I wanted to smack him. Lord help him if the Bailey brothers ever got hands on him, the authorities would never find the body!

From neighbours to lovers; a trope that I have struggled with for the longest time, this author knocked it out of the park and gave me one heck of an experience. Rayne is typically known for comedy and heat. This release does not disappoint in either of these two.

Tension and passion weave through the pages winding together Wyatt and Brooklyn, neither wanting to get into something serious. Frustration was a trusted companion through some of this one. Will they? Won’t they? Arrggh! Throw in meddling relatives and a father with a stick so firmly planted up high, you’ll catch my drift. Why oh why must people do what they do for other people and never themselves!

‘He doesn’t make it hard to enjoy the way he worships my body. His kisses are little morsels of admiration for my naked self. His groans are a self-confidence boost that assures me I’m what he wants.’ 

The Bailey clan have my heart, such a down to earth rabble family. I love them all. They all have such varying different characteristics and issues. Some authors fail at character building, these two do not.

‘“I’d love it if some chick came to tell me something while I was in the shower and she just pushed past the curtain and my back was turned as her hands slid around me and her wet body pressed to mine as her hands continued until they—OUCH!”
“Children,” Grandma says, looking around. “Not to mention, you can’t talk like in front of me, it’s disrespectful.”’
 

And who can forget the ending to this little gem? Those poor twins, I cannot wait for the next installment of The Buzzwheel.

 

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one.
