header_summary

When a rebellious rancher meets the pastor’s daughter, it’s a match made in…Copper Ridge!

Sheltered from her own desires for so long, Hayley Thompson wants to experience life. A new job at Gray Bear Construction is a start. The work she can handle. It’s her boss—reclusive, sexy Jonathan Bear—who’s scrambling her mind and her hormones…

No matter how successful he becomes, Jonathan’s reputation will always precede him. And his type of woman is usually nothing like prim, innocent Hayley. Yet he can’t resist unleashing the fire beneath her pent-up facade—even if seduction means losing his heart…

Sunday Edition

Happy Sunday, readers (and Happy Mother’s Day for all the moms out there)!

So, I meant to get this post up yesterday, but time got away from me. I had the extreme pleasure of photographing a wedding all day yesterday and between preparing for that and editing senior photos for a half dozen upcoming graduates, I’ve been a wee bit swamped as of late. But I spent my morning photographing some of the recent books I’ve recently bought or received that I think you might be interested in…

Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis (Cedar Ridge #3)

Take Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates (Copper Ridge: Desire #1)

I’m a huge Maisey Yates fan, so it’s no surprise to me at all that I loved Take Me, Cowboy, the first book in the  author’s HQ Desire Copper Ridge series. I need to write my full review for this book still, so look for that to appear on the blog sometime soon.

Chance of a Lifetime by Marissa Clarke (Anderson Brothers #3)

*2016 RITA Nominee for Best Short Contemporary Romance*

I had the pleasure of reading and helping edit the first draft of this book and loved it, and then I read the final copy and loved it even more. This was an incredibly fun series to read, and this third book made the series all the more special thanks to an incredible cast of lead characters, Gen Richards and Chance Anderson. If you haven’t read this series, and especially this book yet, you really should give it a shot. Excellent characterization and some fantastic storytelling.

Rough Rhythm by Tessa Bailey (Made in Jersey #1.5)

As part of the 1,001 Dark Nights collection, this book is not for the faint of heart. It’s much darker and kinkier than the other books in Tessa Bailey’s Made in Jersey series, as it deals with dark themes some people may not be comfortable with reading. I personally enjoyed the book, as I have with all of this author’s works thus far, and I will be writing my full review for Rough Rhythm at some point soon.

Thrown Down by Tessa Bailey (Made in Jersey #2)

Seriously loved this book. I was able to read an ARC for review and loved it so much I ordered a print copy for my keeper shelf. This is one of my all time favorite series for Entangled’s Brazen line. Absolutely stellar writing, phenomenal characterization, and HOT AS HELL love scenes.

Publisher: HQN Books
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 1st, 2015
Series: Copper Ridge
Pages: 400

A one-time bad girl comes home to small-town Oregon in the first in a sexy, heartfelt new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates…

Sadie Miller isn’t expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from part-time rancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straight-laced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her like she’s the same teenage hoodlum who fled town ten years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw…

Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she’s so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right?
