This time, she’s calling the shots.

Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he’s been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy’s determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she’ll finally be able to move on.

In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.

A new beginning . . . 

A fresh start. That’s exactly what Ally Shaw needs and what she’s found in Glacier Ridge, Montana. Creating a simpler life with her young son and reconnecting with her only remaining family-it’s all part of Ally’s plan to chase away the pain of her past. But when a dangerously irresistible cowboy rescues her little boy, Ally can’t deny she’s excited about what else the future might bring.

Reed Malloy was a wild horse who wouldn’t be broken. Devoted to his work on the land at the expense of everything else, he’d never met a woman who could hold his interest . . . until Ally. And now, beautiful Ally and her fearless, freckled child have this cowboy wanting more. This isn’t Ally’s first time at the rodeo, though, and convincing her to trust him isn’t easy. But there isn’t anything he won’t do to keep her safe . . . and make her his.

Under siege. That’s how Ryker Jones feels. The Lost Bastards Investigative Agency he opened up with his blood brothers has lost a client in a brutal way. The past he can’t outrun is resurfacing, threatening to drag him down in the undertow. And the beautiful woman he’s been trying to keep at arm’s length is in danger…and he’ll destroy anything and anyone to keep her safe.

Paralegal Zara Remington is in over her head. She’s making risky moves at work by day and indulging in an affair with a darkly dangerous PI by night. There’s a lot Ryker isn’t telling her and the more she uncovers, the less she wants to know. But when all hell breaks loose, Ryker may be the only one to save her. If his past doesn’t catch up to them first…

Full of twists and turns you won’t see coming, DEADLY SILENCE is New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti at her suspenseful best.

Margot McCleery could have lived her whole life without seeing Bentley Wellington again—her ex-best friend and the poster boy for Hot, Rich Man-Whores everywhere. But Margot’s whiskey-augmented grandmother “buys” Bentley at a charity bachelor auction, and now suddenly he’s at her door. Impossibly charming. Impossibly sexy. And still a complete and utter jackass.

Bentley’s just been coerced by his grandfather to spend the next thirty days charming and romancing the reclusive red-haired beauty who hates him. The woman he abandoned when she needed him the most. Bentley knows just as much about romance as he knows about love—nothing. But the more time he spends with Margot, the more he realizes that “just friends” will never be enough. Now all he has to do is convince her to trust him with her heart . . .

Saturday On The Shelf: Print Book Haul (January – April 2017)

Hey everyone! Happy Saturday!

For those of you who don’t follow me (Deanna Lynn) on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, I thought I’d post a few photos of my recent print book hauls. The largest majority of these books were purchased by me, whether online through Amazon or at a local or semi-local brick and mortar store (Wal-mart, Barnes & Noble, Independent Bookstore), but some of these books are ARCs I received for upcoming reviews or book wins from a couple of online contests (Publisher, Author, Facebook). I have four times this print book haul for e-book purchases and ARCs for review (which some are e-book duplicates for the ones here) but for now, I’ll focus on the print books.

This is a long post, so bear with me please. Also, if I’ve read and reviewed the book here on the blog, I included my link to it.

eBook: $4.99 USD

In a family of cold-hearted black sheep, I, Axel Rutherford, am the blackest.

My father has hated me since the day I was born. The feeling was mutual. In the shady underworld that was my legacy, Cleo McCarthy became my light. She was beautiful, passionate, and my whole world. So naturally my father had to destroy us. First he sent me away. Next he claimed Cleo as his own. But now I’ve returned, and nothing will stop me from taking back everything that is rightfully mine.

He was the love of my life—when my life was still my own.

We were young enough to believe we would last forever, Axel and I. But neither of us realized how cruel life—

and our families—could be. Now I’m trapped in a gilded cage: desired by Axel, who must never know the full truth, and controlled by his father, who would sooner see me dead than free. And I wouldn’t even care, except that it’s no longer only my life at stake.

Sometimes getting lost is the only way to find your way home…

I’m grateful for many things—my work, my apartment, my amazing friends.  But after that night years ago, I’m left with an aching weight I can’t escape.  And it’s keeping me from living and loving the way I desperately want.  So when a ruggedly handsome cop pulls me over, I’m shocked by what just the sight of him does to me—stirring up feelings I didn’t think were possible again.

Cayden Sinclair is undoubtedly one of the good guys.  A former Marine who’s so sexy I can’t seem to keep my hands to myself.  But there are things I’m not ready to share, things that could change everything between us.  Cayden deserves to have the life he’s always wanted—which means walking away from him.  But I don’t know if I’ll ever find the strength to let him go…
