An Irresistible Force, Handymen 2, release day!!

Squee! It’s release day for An Irresistible Force, Handymen 2, and I couldn’t be happier!

I know I’ve been sharing bits and pieces about this book for a while, but here’s a quick recap:

An Irresistible Force features:
– a cinnamon roll hero. In fact, Eli Zorn is sweet and introspective and very hot in his work boots
– a heroine inspired by Stevie from Schitt’s Creek. If forced to choose, I’d have to say Bernie Nolan is my favourite heroine of all the heroines I’ve written. She’s snarky, fun and strong. I love her, and I hope you do too.
– Hot landscaper + a woman determined to undermine his latest project + a dash of forced proximity = HOT!

CW: in this story, both the heroine and the hero were bullied as teens, so there are discussions about teen bullying. As the story progresses, it is one of the things that creates a deep, meaningful bond between them.

Hex, Love, and Rock & Roll by @Kat_A_Turner.

Tomorrow, awesome author Kat Turner is celebrating the release of Hex, Love and Rock & Roll! I’m reading this one right now, and really enjoying it. I encourage you to check it out!

With a business skidding toward bankruptcy and bone-dry bank account, Helen Schrader is willing to do the unthinkable. But what will happen when she hires a witch to cast a money spell?

When the spell sets in motion her own latent magic and her inexperience causes her to accidentally hex her celebrity crush, rocker Brian Shepherd, all that good fortune she hoped for flies out of the window.

Now, Helen and Brian struggle to break the curse and tackle their growing feelings for each other. Problem is, the harder they fall for each other, the deadlier the curse becomes.

But as a dark magic cult with an unquenchable thirst for power closes in on them, the couple will have to face more than just their inconvenient desire. With time running out and danger mounting, can they beat the hex before Brian becomes its next victim?

“Turner sets up a promising world that readers will be pleased to return to in subsequent installments. Paranormal fans should check this out.” – Publisher’s Weekly

Here’s an excerpt:

Helen’s memory invaded his weary mind, everything about it offering solace and respite from the present. The gentle yet intelligent way she’d talked with him, how she’d listened to him, soothed his battered soul. Everything about her did. Her throaty laugh and folksy Minnesota upswing. The freckles dotting her nose and arms like miniature constellations of stars.

He’d never forget those eyes. Forest fire eyes. Inquisitive and catlike, golden with sparks of jungle green, they glinted with brilliant mischief. Danced, like lush leaves in the warm heart of summer. Looked at him with such sweetness.

Helen hadn’t seen him as a sex object past his prime. Nor had she seen the entertainment product: Brian Shepherd© Aries Records, LLC. She’d seen him as a person. A man.

If you like Darynda Jones, Karen Marie Moning, K. F. Breene, or Laurell K. Hamilton, you’ll love this fun and sexy paranormal romance!

A tale of two titles! (Psst, they’re both “irresistible!) @MelTing21

In the publishing world, it’s pretty common to run into books that have similar or even identical titles. And even though I always try very hard to come up with something I haven’t seen before, it’s impossible to be aware of every title out there.
However, it’s not very often one of your books shares a title with that of a romance buddy’s book!
That is exactly the case with An Irresistible Force, Handymen 2.

When I did my cover reveal, awesome author Melanie Ting reached out to me and told me she has a book of the same name! I was aware of her hockey romance series, the Vancouver Vice series, but I didn’t realize she had a book called An Irresistible Force! So, when she told me, we had a good giggle about it, and decided we needed to show each other some book love.

It looks like a great read! Here’s the blurb:

When Amanda Richardson was a teenager, she had a huge crush on hockey superstar, Chris Luczak. Now over a decade later, he walks into her meeting—looking as hunky and confident as ever. They’ll be working together to put out the fires at her family’s struggling hockey team.

Chris Luczak hated retiring from his one true love: hockey. He’s been going through the motions at head office, but now he’s got a real challenge. All he has to do is persuade the ownership of the Vancouver Vice that—given their current problems—their best option is to sell the team.

At first, all they do is argue. Amanda has a million reasons not to trust Chris, beginning with his reputation as a womanizing playboy. But she needs all the hockey knowledge inside that sculpted, muscular body she’s trying so hard not to notice. And Chris realizes that the longer he puts off this deal, the more time he’ll get to spend with this fiery woman.

Can they work together to save the Vancouver Vice?
