After spending the night with ChristopherFellows, and slinking out of his apartment in the wee hours of the morning, I have no choice but to take a serious look at myself. It’s time for a change. A real life overhaul, full of self-development,healthy living, and all that other stuff that’s supposed to be good for you.
And what better way to find yourself than with a vow of celibacy and a trip to Belize? The way I figure it, if you’re going to get your act together, you might as well begin with a tropical jaunt to paradise to start your transformation off on the rightfoot.
What could go wrong…

One year ago, when attorney Rebecca Andrews swept into the courtroom and took control, it turned Quinn Montgomery’s world upside down. Now, seeing her name on his manifest, old memories are awakened, not of the hard-nosed lawyer who had far too many tricks up her sleeve, but of the sensual woman who spouted legal jargon from full pouting lips. Taking note of her destination, a posh vacation resort that caters to the more…private entertainment, a plan forms, and Quinn decides it’s time to show the sexy lawyer a few tricks of his own. Nor did she expect to find herself pseudo-kidnapped and stranded with him on his private island. She can leave, but when he tells her he wants to show her that real control comes in the form of surrender, Rebecca has two choices—run home to her boring life, or put herself in the hands of the commanding man who promises to give her everything she’s ever wanted in exchange for total and utter submission.

Now that he’s moved away from the big city and settled on the laid back island of Oahu, he’s made some pretty big changes to his life—the biggest of which is his new no-dating policy.

SHIP WRECKED
By Willow Summers
Hawaii’s great and all, but the only reason I’m here is so my co-workers can tie me to the sinking ship that is our department. I know how to sell, but it’ll be impossible with the shoddy presentation I’m forced to do.
When it doubt – drink it away!
I’ve never been lucky, have I mentioned that? So of course it’s when I’m knee-deep in hot mess that I meet Mr. Handsome. He throws me a smile, and a line, and my bad mood evaporates like tequila on hot cement. Dream come true, right?
If only.
Instead he breaks my fall with his crotch as I tip off the bar stool.
Worse still, his buddy is the big shot COO of the accountI’m trying to get.
With the odds stacked against me, I’m better off steering clear. I know this.
But oh man, that smile.
This weekend was supposed to be about work. I was supposed to ward off men with my snarly attitude.
But then, who could say no to that smile…

There’s Nothing Funny About Being Bipolar Guest Post from Author Rebecca Lombardo



There’s Nothing Funny About Being Bipolar


When I have to look at a person and say, “I’m bipolar,” they get a bemused expression on their face as if they’re waiting for the punchline.  That’s all there is to it, and believe me, this is not a joke my friend.   
I can’t think of many more things as infuriating as someone using a mental illness as an insult.  You’re going to hear, “Oh my God! Don’t be so bipolar!” much more than you’re going to get, “Wow, do you have to act so diabetic all the time?” 

The truth is that there are many people that are bipolar and have done horrible things.  Things like theft, murder, even rape.  That does not mean that all of us are capable of such unspeakable acts.  Hollywood doesn’t help matters at all.  Have you ever been using one of the movie streaming services and caught a glimpse of a film that might be interesting?  Sure, many people have.  How many times have you clicked on the description of that film and discovered that the lead in the story is a horribly insane person, and you guessed it…bipolar. 

What is the real difference here?  Bipolar disorder is a disease of the mind; it manifests itself in physical ways all the time.  Just ask anyone who deals with it. Conditions like Fibromyalgia, Cancer, and AIDS begin as physical conditions and can eventually have a negative impact on your mind.  I know I’m walking a fine line here.  I would never tell a Cancer patient that their disease isn’t as debilitating as mine.  I’m just trying to say that it deserves the same amount of patience, acceptance, and respect. 

We hear a lot about stigma these days.  If you try hard enough, you can stigmatize any disease or disorder.  Is social media helping us or hurting us?  I honestly can’t decide.  For example, many, many people commented on the death of Robin Williams.  A lot of the comments were centered around how badly people felt that he was in that kind of pain, and their hearts went out to his family.  Conversely,  the number of comments that described him as a psychotic freak that only cared about himself was staggering.  Some people even went so far to go after his daughter in probably the most painful time of her entire life. 

There are positives to using social media.  I’ve experienced that myself.  I’ve had people from all over the world approach me to talk about my story, or to ask my opinion of their situation.  I’ve yet to come across someone that downright insults me, and I hope that I never do.  I’m not one to hold my tongue on something like that.  I do know that people have quietly unfollowed or unfriended me since I told my story.  Whether they did it because of my disease, I may never know.  The fact of the matter is if they want to walk away from me because I’ve said something that offended them, I completely understand that.  However, to take a hike because I have a disease that I cannot control?  That’s simply ridiculous. 

I get it.  There are people out there that use mental illness as a way to garner attention or special treatment.  To those people, I say shame on you.  Unfortunately, that kind of behavior has been around forever.  I watched a documentary on a woman who fooled an entire community into believing she was a survivor of the towers falling on 9/11.  People like that are sick, but not in the way they want you to believe.

In her first published work, Rebecca Lombardo collects her internationally followed blog into the pages of It’s Not Your Journey. Rebecca shares her struggles with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, self-injury, and recovery from a suicide attempt.
Rebecca candidly reveals her real and raw feelings on these subjects, as well as addressing other issues that have contributed to her downward spiral and eventual climb out of her own pit of despair. Issues such as the loss
of her mother to lung cancer, the death of her brother, abandonment from friends and family members due to her hospitalization, and more.

It Feels Like Cheating! Guest Post from Author of Goodnight Kisses Wilhelmina Stolen

Download this book for FREE! It is free everywhere but Amazon right now but if you read kindle you can get it on Smashwords and send to your kindle as a document to read.

It Feels Like Cheating!

Say it isn’t so! Oh, but it is! I’m guilty! I have a thing for my hero’s younger brother! But honestly, in my defense, the love affair started out so innocently!
My creativity flows better late at night, when the house is quiet, the lights are low and I’m alone. It’s the perfect atmosphere for whipping up hot love scenes, but that wasn’t what this particular night was supposed to be about. I had a rough outline for Goodnight Kisses with a general idea of who my main characters were and what I wanted their love story to be. Knowing their personalities would evolve as the rough draft was written, I turned my attention to the secondary characters. These supporters usually show up as they’re needed and like the main characters, grow with the story. But this wasn’t the case with Jess Coldiron. Nope. This cowboy refused to wait.

When it comes to the men in my stories, the physical description usually comes first (because I like eating my cake before the main course). In the beginning, Jess was like any other character, an idea, a shadow or glimpse of who I wanted him to be. But that changed too. Sandy-blond hair, a little long. A rugged jaw (with just enough stubble to tickle). A straight nose. Blue eyes. Full bottom lip (perfect for nibbling). A
Charlie Hunnam smile that made me want to lose my underwear. Broad shoulders. Strong hips. Long legs…

But looks aren’t everything. Jess needed to be a guy with heart. A man of substance and conscious. Caring with a playful side. I wanted him to be intelligent and humorous with just the right amount of charisma and he needed a voice, a sexy voice. Yeah, something slow and easy with a slight Texas drawl to it. A cross between Jensen Ackles and Matthew McConaughey. Oh, baby! I have to admit, at this point I was a little excited. Maybe too excited for a secondary character, but I didn’t care. I wanted more. So, I kicked off my shoes, poured myself another glass of wine and said, “Okay, handsome, talk to me.”

His first words were, “This night just keeps getting better.” I’ll say! He was so charming and irresistible. He spewed out lines and prompted scenes. Hours passed and before I knew it, I was in love with the easygoing and flirtatious younger brother of my main character. The sidekick, the brother my heroine always wanted. How did that happen?

Falling in love with the hot guy playing second fiddle to my leading man is nothing new for me and sometimes it does feel like cheating. But when a character is vivid and clear, it’s hard not to be captivated by them. Thankfully, my heroes never hold it against me.

JPEG cover for Goodnight Kisses
Fearing she carries her mother’s curse of marriage, nineteen-year-old Eleanor Mackenna swore never to vow herself into matrimonial bondage. Nuptials aren’t needed where true love is concerned. A concept she is sure a man like McCrea Coldiron would agree with. The town gossip has him pegged as a heart breaker, but Eleanor knows a different side to McCrea. And years of loving him without seeing his affection returned has made her desperate enough to ask him for advice on seducing a man. ??
McCrea isn’t proud of his reputation as a brawler and a womanizer. As a teenager the rumors were funny, now they may cost him the land he has worked so hard for. Chatty little Eleanor Mackenna has been chasing his spurs for years and ignoring her was easy to do until she grew up. A beautiful face and curves in all the right places made her hard to resist, and when his granddad lays down an ultimatum to make her his wife, McCrea
offers her a first class lesson in seduction.?
Their date ending in more than good night kisses was everything McCrea promised it would be, but his sudden withdraw, and cold reaction to her confession of love reveal his true motives. A business arrangement with
benefits.

Author Head Shot for Wilhelmina Stolen
I’m a country girl, born in Tennessee and raised in Kentucky. I’m a roamer, but always come home because I love the small town atmosphere. It’s who I am. Life in my little corner of the world consists of long winter nights curled up by the fire, cheering on my favorite football teams in the fall, enduring March Madness in the spring and walking barefoot through my garden with a cold jar of sweet tea in the summer – fireflies at sunset accompanied by a serenade of crickets and frogs, and lazy summer nights in the porch swing with my beau.
When I’m not writing, I’m traveling, reading or finding a million other ways to express my creativity. My tastes in music range from classical to rock. I’m passionate about history, art and helping others find the courage to express themselves.

Review and Giveaway - Blood Moon Magick (Whiskey Witches Novel 2) by SM Blooding

BloodMoonMagicktourbanner2.3h Blood Moon MagickDetective Paige Whiskey has a lot on her plate. A gate to Hell is permanently seared into her soul and she has no way of controlling it. She let a psychotic serial killing demon free in exchange for Dexx’s life. Her sister is about to have a baby and a whole world of crazy has opened in the Whiskey household. And, if that wasn’t enough, she and Dexx are trying to figure out their relationship.
They’re about to discover a world that has been hidden from the Whiskeys. A world of shapeshifters, werewolves, and vampires. A world that was hidden to end a bloody war. A war between shifters and witches.
Paige has to make a decision. Solve this murder and start a war? Or ignore it and keep her family safe?
But when Dexx is bitten, all everything changes. War? Or love?
Why is nothing ever simple?
I received a complimentary copy for my honest review, no compensation was received.

I absolutely loved this book. Detective Paige Whiskey is a demon summoner who already knew of the existence of demons and angels, but her world just got rocked with the introduction of more paranormal creatures into her life. One of whom is already someone close to her, but she had no idea that he is something more than human.

The action in this book was fast paced and non-stop. I have not yet read the first book in the series, but after reading this one I am definitely going to have to go back and do so to catch up. Detective Whiskey has me hooked.

             Excerpt:

LURED BY THE pulse of sex and anonymity, Amanda Jenner moved through the dusky bar, brushing against silk, satin, cotton, and flesh, each graze feeding the adrenaline coursing through her veins. Blue lights misted over sweaty strangers lost in the seductive bump and grind of foreplay and hoping for a night of erotic pleasure. If Amanda tried hard enough, she could smell tomorrow’s scent du jour—regret. Tonight she had no room for the confidence-crushing worry of what tomorrow would bring. She scanned the crowd, as she had in the previous three bars, immediately dismissing anyone who wasn’t in costume. Her world was full of boring men who excelled at wining, dining, and boring her to sleep. Ten years of romance novels and movies had led her astray, looking for the elusive needle in a haystack. She’d led herself astray, always the careful thinker, careful dresser. Or as her younger sister, Ally, would say, Careful kisser, careful lover. Ally, however, had taken charge of her sex life—and she’d found the perfect man.
Now it’s my turn.
