Living with a long-tailed cat, a grandmother who bakes giant Snickerdoodles, and an autistic brother who “collects” neighborhood lawn ornaments, Katie has her hands full…until she opens the door to a “hot” rookie cop investigating a not-so-petty theft. Is it a major crime or an arrest of the heart?

Hot Stuff is a cute story of falling in love, literally. C.J. Fosdick has handled an autistic brother with kindness, and love making this book a must read for everyone.

BLURB:

Alone on Valentine’s Day, Leo Rankin attends the library’s Blind Date With a Book event hoping for something he can take to bed with him that night, and finds himself competing against Gerri Webb for the last remaining book. Wild child Gerri is not his usual type. Yet he feels an immediate, sizzling attraction and agrees to share the book and its accompanying bag of candy hearts.

The whole idea of a Blind Date With a Book is to go off genre, so Gerri doesn’t mind when their flirty conversation suggests they unwrap each other rather than the mystery book. When a candy heart advises, “Ask Me,” she asks Leo back to her apartment. She never expects button-down Leo to hit all her buttons, but by the next morning she fears her heart’s in danger. Can one night spent off genre translate to real life?

REVIEW:

Laura Strickland has penned an amazing story around the concept of blind date with a book. This story grabbed me on page one and wouldn’t let me go until the final satisfying page.

Interview with Heidi Kneale

canady hearts banner

Welcome Heidi. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I live in Australia, on the coast of the Indian Ocean. I live about as far away as you can get from everywhere else without leaving the planet. I am tempted to leave the planet, as I am an astronomer and spend much of my time staring at the stars.

When and why did you begin writing?

Probably as soon as I could hold a pencil. I’ve always had a love of stories, I was a precocious reader, which probably saved my writerly soul, because I always found the picture books of the time to be rather tepid and pandering. Thank goodness they’ve evolved into something far more genuine.

I started writing because I couldn’t not write. I had stories to tell! Also I’d read the works of others and sometimes think, “I could do better than that.” (Whether or not that’s true remains to be seen.)

I was first published in a literary magazine when I was seventeen, and I’ll continue writing until you pry the keyboard from my cold, stiff hands.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Courage to be yourself. We are at our most honest when we are true to ourselves. Also, seek out the positive in life. Only in positivity does true happiness lie.

What authors have most influenced you? Why?

I confess I own a guilty gratitude to the Romance authors of the 80’s for showing me that HEA (Happily Ever After) can happen despite the crap that life throws at us. I’m also partial to contemporary Fantasy Authors for showing me that you can eat at two different banquets at the same time.

What are you reading now?

My TBR pile has a blend of books. I’ve got some indie Regency Romance authors like Margaret McGaffey Fisk, and some contemporary Paranormal authors like SKS Perry, and will always seek out the works of my favourite Fantasy Romance authors Gail Carriger and Mary Robinette Kowal. I’m a devotee of eBooks, so the whole of the world’s available literature is my potential TBR pile.

What is your favorite punctuation mark and why?

Love the semicolon, possibly because I know how to use it. I find it most useful for connecting two sentences together without adding the bulk of “and”. I’m really into juxtaposition as a literary tool.

Tell us about your new release.

MARRY ME let me have fun with magic and candy hearts. How cool are enchanted talking candy hearts? They are totally cool. I’d never written a story in the Gold Era (aka Edwardian), so it was refreshing to explore a new time period in history.

The beginning of the 20th Century was an age of enlightenment. Women discovered their voice as the world stared coming into its own. Alas, the Great War (World War 1) would soon be upon the stage, but until then, I love how the world had such optimism and hope for the future. The emerging technology revolution that would mark the 20th Century was well and truly underway.

I tapped into this optimism for my characters Raymond and Millie. And they’re in New York City! Nowhere on this planet is more awesome than New York.

perf5.000x8.000.indd

 

Blurb:

In 1905 New York City, affluent Millie Moore wants to be outspoken like the suffragettes she admires. She also wants to rid herself of an annoying and controlling suitor. For a well-brought up young lady whose mother fears her impending spinsterhood, speaking her mind is an uphill battle.

When Raymond Wilson sees Millie at a rally, it’s love at first sight. Not wanting his stutter to ruin his chances, he enchants a little candy heart to do his talking for him.

For Millie, Raymond is a breath of fresh air. And maybe, just maybe, someone she could love. But for her social-climbing suitor Guy Elliot, he’s a threat to his plans. And Raymond isn’t the only one who knows something about magic. Now the ante has been upped and Millie is the prize…

Broken-hearted and bitter, Brenna Jones plans to spend Valentine’s weekend at her parents’ cabin, reading romance novels and devouring heart-shaped candy. When her truck hits a snowdrift and plows into a bank—during a storm, no less—her plans take a drastic detour. Eric Buchanan, the playboy jerk from her past, comes to her aid. He’s her only option for reaching safety.

Eric can’t wait to escape his parents’ latest attempt to set him up. He’s given up on happiness, knowing he blew his chance at love a decade ago. When his snowmobile ride turns into a harrying escape from a blizzard, he discovers Brenna stranded in the storm. After he ensures her safety, he plans to explain the misunderstanding that tore them apart. Can a secluded cabin help Eric convince Brenna to be his love?

An isolated cabin, a snow storm, and an ex-lover seem what most romance novels are made but J. C. McKenzie transports the reader into a delightfully fresh story with unexpected twists. I couldn’t put this book down.

Blurb:

The last place Lorena Weber wants to be on Valentine’s Day is a singles party thrown by her newlywed best friend. But how can she say no? She’ll give it an hour—two, tops—and then she’s heading back to her normal life. But she didn’t plan on seeing the one man who had turned her world on its side New Year’s Eve with one kiss that opened doors she had firmly locked.

Caleb Manning got coerced into attending this ridiculous party by a co-worker. He’ll stay for an hour at most and then he’ll head home. That was the plan until he recognized Lorena across the room and had to see if that kiss was only New Year’s Eve magic or something more.

REVIEW:

One Kiss is a light-hearted romance about the two people at a Valentine’s party. It made me laugh, and it tugged at my heart. Misty Simon is a talented writer. This book is a perfect read on a chill night.

BLURB:

Looking for inspiration, designer Genevieve Hoffman agrees to an apartment swap and heads to the south of France. But when the apartment owner’s brother returns from deployment, she finds herself with a man who inspires fantasies rather than fashion.

Etienne Gagnon barely made it out of Syria alive during his last special forces assignment. All he wants is a little R&R in the apartment he shares with his sister. But the woman making breakfast in his kitchen isn’t his sister. He might not understand a word coming out of her mouth but he has no problem reading body language and likes what she’s saying just fine.

REVIEW:

Je T’Aime by Ursula Whistler tells a story that love is strong then language problems. I fell in love with the characters and the ups and downs they experiences. The description was wonderful and I felt I was living in France with them. It was a superb read.
