Is it the chance of a lifetime or his biggest mistake?

When former hotel manager Alex Kirkland, his sister, and their best friends pooled their money for an unusual lottery prize—a historic, dilapidated inn on the Maryland shore—as a last-ditch attempt to escape rotten circumstances, they never expected to win. But they’re all looking for a fresh start and a second chance, so Alex convinces everyone to move in and repair the building in time for the spring wedding season.

Sydney Darrow never planned to return to her hometown. But her family needs her and Sydney can endure anything for 90 days—including making sandwiches and serving coffee with a smile until she returns to her jet-setter career. When her grandma mistakes a handsome customer for the “fiancé” Sydney created when she thought her grandma was on death’s door, well…Sydney will do anything to keep her spirits up during treatment. She can persuade him to keep up the charade for a few months, right?

But when Alex agrees to play along, will they both fall for their own fiction?

Orphans and humans and weres, oh my! 

Oz Adway is a rare breed: an accountant who wants to get dirty. And, by the way, a wolf shifter working for the Interspecies Placement Agency. Bored with his safe office job, he volunteers to find runaway bear cub Sally Smalls, recently orphaned by a plane crash. Piece of cake, right? Unfortunately, Sally’s taken refuge with “ordinary” human Lila Kai, a reluctant guardian who has no idea what’s going on but will destroy anyone who tries to take the cub. Not that it matters. Oz is not about to let a gorgeous Stable jeopardize his career move.

As for Lila, she knows something’s different about the sexy weirdo who keeps popping up in the wrong place at the right time. She’s determined to figure out what, regardless of the escalating threats to her safety and Oz’s distracting hotness. She didn’t move into a cursed house and take in a werebear just to run when things get complicated. Together, Oz and Lila will prevail! But only if they can keep their hands off each other…

Put away your pocket protectors: This hilarious story includes a nerdy shifter accountant with a bad-boy side, a fiercely protective human heroine, and a baby bear cub that will make every reader sigh in cuteness.

COYER Seasons – Spring 2021

Posted March 2, 2021 by Marsha in COYER, Discussion Post / 0 Comments

I really, really need to clean out my e-reader (COYER) – it’s overloaded beyond what I’m comfortable with these days.  Time.  It’s always never enough time in the day.  But… the Spring session of the COYER 2021 challenge is perfect to dip my feet back into this reading challenge once again.

To join, to learn the “rules”, or simply find a great community here’s the link to the Spring Season of Coyer (it’s also on the graphic over there <–)

In short, if you have any of those *free* series starter books on your e-reader (and I think most readers certainly do) then you’re perfect for this reading challenge – and it only gets better from there as any e-book under $2 or Audio or Physical book under $5 qualifies… and those 99¢ books add up, right?

Follow the link, check out the Spring season “rules” and have some fun while you make space on your e-reader for even more books – because, honestly, we all know that we won’t stop downloading books any time soon.  *wink*

The MacTaggert brothers have one task: Find English brides or lose their land!

Coll MacTaggert, Viscount Glendarril, is a big, brawny Highlander who doesn’t like being told what to do—not even by his exasperated English mother who is determined to see her eldest son wedded and bedded.

When Coll learns that Persephone is actually a lady-in-hiding and someone is willing to kill her for what she stands to inherit…Well, Coll has never been one to turn down a fight.
