Magic in this witch’s family has a name: Trouble.

Sidney Grace is trying to adjust to her new life in Crystal Beach, Florida which comes with a whole new set of challenges. Mainly, what is she going to do to support herself now and how long can she stay illegally parked at the beach? The handsome Officer Reece is tough on criminals and even tougher on witches. But these aren’t even her biggest troubles…

For starters, her mom, the Tupperware Queen, is headed down for a surprise visit…to look at buying her own property in Crystal Beach. After all, who else is going to protect Sidney from her magic-wielding grandmother? Cue the funeral march on Sydney’s phone. Now she must contend with a pushy realtor, her crazy new boss, a botched mini-golf tournament, and her talking cat, while secretly unlocking her own magic.

As she opens her mind to her psychic powers to help the residents at Shifting Sands, Sidney discovers a second chance for love, but her heart is pulling her in two different directions, and one direction could very well be deadly.

The Most Wonderful Earl of the Year by Sandra Sookoo

Posted December 5, 2022 by Marsha in Booksprout ARC, Christmas Romance, Historical Romance, Holiday Romance, Regency Romance, Sexual Content / 0 Comments

Love at Christmastide is wonderful… if the couple in question believes in the magic.

Alistair Forsythe, the 12th Earl of Reardon, is the most sought-after man in the ton this Christmastide season. Handsome, of good character, and possessing a large fortune, he finally intends to do his duty to his title after being in India for years. In the market for a wife, he can now easily have his pick of any woman, yet none of them have snared his interest—not since Carole—but she is beyond his reach.

Miss Carole Hazelton doesn’t give two farthings about a man’s position within the ton or his looks. In fact, she’s not thought about the beau monde since that horribly embarrassing day five years ago when Alistair left her standing alone at the altar. Now making her living as a governess, she’s both dismayed and furious to discover the neighbor who’s returned to the townhouse next door is the man who’d jilted her—Alistair.

As that old scandal recirculates, it throws their reputations into question. To repair the damage, the earl and Carole must practice forgiveness. While she’s not quick to forget, he’s not above employing charm and mistletoe to his advantage or drawing on their past romance, but when the feelings they both thought long dead come rushing back, that love just might ruin them both… or provide a second chance they never knew they needed.

In High Spirits by Beth Prentice

Posted November 1, 2022 by Marsha in Booksprout ARC, Paranormal Cozy Mystery, Paranormal Romance, Series / 0 Comments

What do you do when you wake up dead?

Daisy Montgomery was living her best life until she was attacked by a force so powerful that it separated her body from her soul. Now neither living nor dead, her spirit form lacks ghostly abilities like walking through walls, and she can’t communicate with anyone. Except one.

Luckily her connection to her little dog, Alfie, led her to super sexy Charlie O’Sullivan, a man who can not only see her spirit and open doors for her but someone who makes her question everything she thought she knew about her life, love, and almost death.

The more she, Charlie, and his merry band of spirit helpers uncover, the longer her suspect list grows. But when someone else she knows dies, Daisy must use her newfound knowledge to discover who the killer is before they strike again. If she can’t, not only are her loved ones at risk but the killer could come back to finish the job they started the night of her attack. And Daisy’s not ready to rest in peace.
