The Heart by Kate Stewart is LIVE!!!

The Heart Banner

The Heart




For the last ten years, I've roamed the globe, captivated by the world around me. I've seen the seven wonders and admired sunsets from every continent. I'd lived and loved and that was enough for me. It would have to be.

I was content, satisfied with my collection of experiences . . . until a phone call led me down a road less traveled.

If I'd known my fascination would pique and be forever quenched only a few hundred miles from where my curiosity had been born, I may have never set sail.


Stripped of the future I'd planned with the love of my life, my family and my career were now all that mattered. I'd lived and loved and that was enough. It would have to be.

I struggled to move forward, to discard the part of me that held out hope for my obliterated heart. But I was bred a romantic, so it was easier said than done.

The chances of being struck by lightning are 1 in 960,000.

The odds of being struck twice are 1 in 9 million.

I risked those odds every minute, often cursing the dark sky, praying for static and a rumble of thunder, but it never came.

No, that second bolt hit me on a clear day.

The Heart can be read as a stand alone but it is HIGHLY recommended you read the first two books in the series first.

Bella's Review: 4 Stars
I listened to this book on audio and really enjoyed it. 

It was light and easy with very little angst or drama and it totally fit the bill for what I needed at the time. 

Emilio and Spencer meet when Emilio is doing construction work on the campus where Spencer is a math professor. Spencer keeps looking out his window at the strapping young stud working outside and he is completely clueless that Emilio too, is looking for him. 

Spencer is nerdy, neurotic and painfully shy. He has had his share of crappy boyfriends and has sort of given up on love. He just doesn't think its in the cards for him. When Emilio comes on to him, he can't really believe this is happening. Emilio is the most gorgeous man he has ever seen in real life. No way can he be interested in him. 

Emilio aims to seduce the nerdy professor but after spending some time with him, he decides Spencer might be the perfect guy for him. 

Warning: this is complete insta love, completely sweet and completely predictable. 

But I loved every minute of it!! 

Emilio was so perfect. Gorgeous, patient, kind, protective, understanding. Loved the maturity and confidence his character portrayed. Wish I could find a real life Emilio. 

Spencer, for all the talk of him being so intelligent, got a bit tongue tied around Emilio and didn't really say or do anything all that intelligent. But I was happy for him to find love. 

These two have great chemistry! 

The narrator did a great job with both characters - highly recommend the audio.


Love at First Sight: Home Collection, # 4

Written by: Cardeno C.

Narrated by: Alexander Collins

Length: 7 hrs and 10 mins

AUDIO CLIP - at-first- sight-retail- audio-sample


The moment naïve, optimistic Jonathan Doyle glimpses a gorgeous blue-eyed stranger from afar, he
believes in love at first sight. Unfortunately, he loses sight of the man before they meet and then spends
years desperately trying to find him. Just as he is about to give up, Jonathan gets a break and finally encounters David Miller face to face.

Successful, confident David turns Jonathan's previously lonely life into a fairy tale, giving him more than he ever imagined. But the years spent searching were hard on Jonathan, and he's terrified his young son and scandalous past will destroy his blossoming relationship. For David and Jonathan to build a future together, they'll both have to dig deep: David for the courage to share himself in a way he's never considered and Jonathan for the strength to tell the truth.

Bella's Review: 3 stars
I listened to this audio book. The narrator, Alexander Collins, has narrated several of Cardeno C.'s audiobooks and I do like his style. 

Love at First Sight was difficult for me to get into. The beginning had several parts that made me want to shake Jonathan and slap some sense into him. (view spoiler) I wish Jonathan had a bit more of a spine. 

Here's the premise: Jonathan sees David through a window. He falls instantly in love with him. But the "blue eyed man" slips through his fingers. Jonathan Moves to New York determined to find him. 

After 3 years he gives up and moves back home. And he finds him. 

And David, taking one look at Jonathan, falls pretty much instantly in love with Jonathan. 

I admit, I was expecting David to react quite a bit differently to Jonathan's past, but this couple is pretty sweet together. They have scorching hot chemistry - I mean HOT!! 

While not very realistic, this book was entertaining. I enjoyed the second half of the book much more than I enjoyed the first half of the book.


Cardeno C. - CC to friends - is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few
"awwws" into a reader's day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer
work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno's stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to
paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.

Cardeno's Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More
Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But
even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, "You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day."

In Flight
By Rachael Orman


All it took was for the right, older man to sit next to me. That flight changed my life. What started out as boring, small talk swiftly changed to flirting. Things got out of hand for a while, but he made sure to leave me with memories I'll never forget.

Then he took me home to meet his twin brother and introduce me to what it's like to have the full attention of two men at the same time.

*Erotic Short Story about Older MEN and younger woman - M/F/M*

Shifting in his seat, he turned toward me so our knees bumped in the small space. He unbuttoned his jacket and shrugged it off, revealing a crisp white dress shirt and multi-hued tie before draping it over his lap.
“How about…what do you do when you aren’t at work? For fun, that is.” I moved so I was turned toward him as I asked the first question I could think of.
His lips pressed together, making it appear he was fighting to hide a smile. “I like to tie up and spank young women.”
If I hadn’t seen the sparkle in his eye, I would’ve thought he was completely serious from his tone of voice. Not to mention, the smile he was fighting to hide.
“Well, sir, that’s awfully forward to share.” I returned the smile. Little did he know that I actually enjoyed such things.
“You asked. I simply answered. What do you like to do outside of work? I shared something personal, so you have to, too.” His sparkling brown eyes met mine in an unspoken challenge. Things had swiftly moved from friendly to flirting, and I was okay with that. Not that I normally found older men attractive, but I liked how bold he was. Somehow, he managed to find the balance between being extremely forward without crossing over into creepy.

“Now, now… That wouldn’t be fair,” an unexpected voice said from the other side of the room. My legs dropped from around Ben’s waist as my eyes searched for the source of the voice. Standing with one shoulder leaning against the wall of windows was a near replica of Ben, only in jeans and a t-shirt instead of the button-up shirt and slacks that Ben wore.
“Ah, horrible timing as usual. Summer, meet Bryce, my twin. I told you I had a surprise for you. Although, now I’m wondering if I should’ve saved you all for myself.” Ben nipped at my bottom lip before stepping back. “After our little adventure on the plane, I knew you would be just the right woman to share with my brother. See, it takes a special woman to keep the interest of two men. A woman who can handle having the full attention of two men, four hands, two tongues, and two needy cocks. Do you think you can handle it?”

Bella's Review: 4 Stars

Holy. Hotness. 

That's what this book was. I listened to the audio version and it's 1 hour and 6 minutes long, so it's a quickie. 

Summer sits next to Ben on a flight, one thing leads to another and she goes home with him. 

Aaaaand discovers that he has a twin brother who joins them!!! I mean, what girl hasn't fantasized about this???

It's short, it's sexy and it's fun. 

The narrator did a great job pulling off the sexy scenes. 

Bottom line: entertaining listen!!

The Player and the Pixie BLOG TOUR + GIVEAWAY!


The Player and the Pixie
by L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid
Publication Date: April 12, 2016
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Sports, Humor


Purchase: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | iBooks | Kobo | Barnes & Noble

How can someone so smokin’ hot be so bad in bed? I mean, Sean Cassidy is absolute rubbish. RUBBISH. He is the epitome of walking, talking false advertising and I want a refund! Plus he’s an arsehole. So… what is wrong with me that I can’t stop thinking about him?

The Pixie and the Player is a full-length, romantic comedy novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the second book in the Rugby Series.

Lucy Fitzpatrick doesn’t like rugby.

As the little sister of Ireland’s most infamous rugby player, Lucy can’t seem to escape the championship-sized shadow cast by her big brother, or her mother’s frequent attempts to micromanage her future. Her rainbow hair is as free-spirited as her quest for inner peace, yet overbearing expectations keep bringing her down. And when she’s down, her compulsive little problem lands her in seriously big trouble.

Sean Cassidy is a cold-hearted brute… or so he’s been told. Frequently. By everyone.

His blonde locks, baby blues, and rock hard bod make ladies the world over drool with desire. As the rugby world’s second most infamous player, he should be basking in his success. But Sean has never been content settling for second place, and his frequent confrontations with Lucy’s big brother leave him cold. And when he’s cold, his compulsive little problem lands him in the lap of Lucy Fitzpatrick.

Sean has a problem only Lucy can solve. Lucy has a problem only Sean can fix. The solution seems obvious: you scratch my back, and I’ll bail you out of jail. But when their business arrangement unexpectedly leaves Sean scorching hot and Lucy on the precipice of inner peace, can they convince the world—and Lucy’s big brother in particular—that this is the real deal?

Either way, both the Player and the Pixie are about to teach each other some pretty monumental lessons about family, life, but most importantly, love.

Once again, Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway co-wrote a book and they KILLED IT! I thought The Hooker and the Hermit was a great book, I really did- but this book? This book was PERFECT for me. When I started it the other night, I had every intention of reading a few chapters then going to bed and finishing it the next night. It was a work night, so I knew I shouldn’t stay up too late. Once I started reading, that flew out the window because I couldn’t put it down! It brings me so much joy reading a book from cover to cover and enjoying every second of it!

Lucy Fitzpatrick is Ronan’s sister. She’s living in NYC and working with Annie on her blog. Lucy is a pretty amazing character, but she has a few issues that stem from the anxiety her mother brings her. She doesn’t cope in the healthiest of ways, but out of her mother's grasp, she seems to do fine. Lucy is a free spirit. She is one of those amazingly positive people that always tries to find the best in people. Then she meets Sean Cassidy. And he makes it hard.

When I first saw that Sean was the hero of this story, I was apprehensive about him. I mean, he was a grade A jerk in the last book. Sean really isn’t a bad guy- he’s just… misunderstood. He doesn’t have a great family life, he speaks his mind sometimes without thinking and he’s a bit thoughtless and inconsiderate at times. BUT even with all that, I loved the guy! Sean is a famous rugby player and nemesis of Ronan. Therefore, someone Lucy should never get involved with. For some reason, Sean is drawn to Lucy and her rainbow hair and positive disposition. He knows she is not a girl he should have any feelings for, but he’s cold, he’s lonely, and she makes him feel better about himself.

I already wanted Lucy. Nothing would be more disastrous than actually liking her too.

Watching these two characters start to fall for one another was a real treat. Both struggled with their feelings. Lucy feels like she is being disloyal to her brother by liking Sean. Sean doesn’t feel he deserves Lucy at all. My favorite thing about this book is watching the growth Sean has. One of the best parts about this story is that Sean is terrible in bed. We read so many books with these rock star men that are amazing in the sack, but that’s not always reality. I loved his willingness to learn and Lucy’s willingness to teach him. I also loved the way he saw her- as the perfect woman she was.

   photo F444D2B3-84CE-4624-B1FF-082BF93D72F4_zpsmbnngesn.jpg  

He looked at me like I was the center of something important. Like I was important to him.

The Player and the Pixie is a book that had it all. It was funny, entertaining, emotional, sexy and had an amazingly imperfect (yet perfect for each other) couple. I can’t sing my praises enough for this story. No one is more shocked than me that I loved Sean Cassidy as much as I did, but I DID! I loved him! He and Lucy together made my heart so happy. Reid and Cosway did an amazing job with this book and I will read anything they co-write in the future…. and after reading the sneak peek to the next book in this series? OMG I cannot wait!

If you’re looking for a read with a spunky heroine, a redeemable hero, a book with lots of laughs, steam, and most importantly- heart, this is one I highly recommend! Going on my favorites list as a 5+ star read!   

“I don’t want anyone but you.”

L.H. Cosway

L.H. Cosway has a BA in English Literature and Greek and Roman Civilisation, and an MA in Postcolonial Literature. She lives in Dublin city. Her inspiration to write comes from music. Her favorite things in life include writing stories, vintage clothing, dark cabaret music, food, musical comedy, and of course, books.

She thinks that imperfect people are the most interesting kind. They tell the best stories.

Penny Reid

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.
