Meet the Author

Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).
She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.

Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in one-room school house in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order

She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they’re so naughty we don’t talk about them.)

The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

Misadventures with a Professor by Sierra Simone

Zandy Lynch never planned on going to grad school a virgin. So when her professor father finds her a job abroad as a research assistant the summer before she starts her master’s program, she sees her chance. She’s got one night in London to lose her V-card to a Mr. Darcy lookalike before she has to join some ancient professor in the country.
Oliver Graeme is not looking forward to having some American co-ed hovering around while he’s trying to work, but he owes her father the favor, and besides, his office is an untidy mess of uncatalogued research. He needs the help. Still, he decides to take the edge off his frustration while visiting a colleague in London, and winds up having the sexiest, sweetest night of his life with a stranger, who vanishes in the morning without a trace…

To Zandy’s shock when she arrives at Professor Graeme’s house a day later, the door isn’t opened by a fussy old scholar, but by the wild, passionate man she met in London. Cold and reserved by day, Oliver is ferociously greedy with her at night, and it’s not long before Zandy finds herself falling for both versions of him—the aloof professor and the generous, rough lover. The trouble is that summer only lasts so long, and Zandy already has a plane ticket waiting to take her home…

Quick, Fun, dirty novella written by the connoisseur of kink. One night stands are never better than one written by the queen of carnal fornication Sierra Simone.  Although is one is a novella it’s huge on the things that matter the most.

 

 

 

Kindred Spirits by Whitney Dineen

Dashing and successful, Richard Bingham has been voted one of the top ten bachelors in New York City. After unwittingly offending a reporter from Manhattan Life magazine, he finds himself on the receiving end of an article that makes his quest of finding the perfect mate nearly impossible.
After one dating disaster too many, Richard decides it’s time to seek professional help, so he signs up for the matchmaking services of the East Side Yenta.
Philippa Fielding is single and searching for love in London, but her accidental profession of “Message Deliverer from the Great Beyond” puts most men right off.
Will Pip’s new “Spirit Helper,” Bertram, be able to set her on the course for true love with a message for Richard?
Matchmaking, misunderstandings, and mayhem abound in this fast-paced romantic comedy about love, life, and the afterlife!

Kindred info

Do you believe in the after-life? You might have asked yourself this question from time to time during your lifetime. This hilarious story will have you questioning that sentiment time and again.

Bertram Jasper Griffin has been given the ungodly task of finding his assistant a soul mate in time to save himself, not too demanding, right? Wrong!

Philippa Fielding (Pip) has the wonderful job of relaying messages from the dead to the living. As you guessed it’s not always well received, good intentions and all that stuff. Mayhem is probably the most suitable word for what ensues.

Richard Bingham is NYC most eligible bachelor who wants to change his status as quickly as possible. Richard evens hires a Yenta to help him in his quest of finding a bride, but not just a bride, he was a life partner who he can share his life with, have a ton of babies together, a kindred soul, a true love to last a lifetime.

Whitney Dineen can sure spin the yarn. Her writing is original, humorous, witty, and entertaining. If you like romantic comedies definitely check out Whitney Dineen you may find she is better at comedy than most and has the romance part of it as well. It’s more than one line here or there, some of the scenarios are spot on and you can picture it in your mind’s eye. She is one of my favorite new authors of 2018, so happy she makes me laugh out loud. Who doesn’t need laughter in their life?

Heartbreak Warfare by Heather M. Orgeron & Kate Stewart

LIVE-3

Briggs,

Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn’t know was that I was breaking mine too.

I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .
2
Before the war.
Before the ambush.
Before you.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.
1
The truth is I’m lost without you.

4

I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

All my love,
Scottie

About the Authors:

Heather

Heather M. Orgeron is a Cajun girl with a big heart and a passion for romance. She married her high school sweetheart two months after graduation and her life has been a fairytale ever since. She’s the queen of her castle, reigning over five sons and one bossy little princess who has made it her mission in life to steal her Momma’s throne. When she’s not writing, you will find her hidden beneath mounds of laundry and piles of dirty dishes or locked in her tower(aka the bathroom) soaking in the tub with a good book. She’s always been an avid reader and has recently discovered a love for cultivating romantic stories of her own.

KateStewart-AuthorPhoto2 A Texas native, Kate Stewart lives in North Carolina with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. She pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it’s what she loves as a reader. Kate is a lover of all things ’80s and ’90s, especially John Hughes films and rap. She dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity, and on occasion, does very well at whisky.

My Review:

I was introduced to Kate Stewart’s work earlier this year and had the privilege of meeting her in person at an intimate event, and then again at a signing, Books by the Bridge in NYC. BTW Kate is personable, very talented, funny, humble and downright all around awesome, just saying. At this time she mentioned she was working on a project with Heather and was looking forward to seeing our reactions. When the time came for cover release, I was floored and thought OMG am I going to be able to read this Military romance without crumbling into a ball of snot rocking back and forth, having a psychotic episode.

You see after September 11, 2001; everything changed in the Northeast part of the United States. My backstory, I worked for Merrill Lynch at World Financial Center, 18th floor, the south tower, as an Employee Benefits Specialist. Merrill Lynch reorganized corporate structure and moved my department to Hopewell, New Jersey on July 22, my last day in NYC was Friday, July 20th, just six weeks before this life-altering event that has changed our World in which we live in today. Nine Eleven affected me in more ways than I care to think about or remember, please keep this in mind when reading my review.

ARC’s were released yesterday, not remembering my earlier thoughts when the cover was released, I was excited to download and start my epic journey.

Immediately, I was hooked and couldn’t stop reading. My emotions were all over the place; Proud of a woman joining the Army, becoming a medic. Then saddened Kate was leaving her life as a wife and mom behind to serve her country overseas in a war zone. Suddenly worried when she went off base, to horrified and tortured wondering if she was going to survive her ordeal. The unease I felt was nothing compared to what Kate had suffered during her time aboard and upon her return home. There are two Kate’s before the war, and after the war, both are the same in ways a loving woman, mother, and sister but opposite in others ways, a hot mess ready to explode at any sudden noises.  As a reader, I often find myself torn between two men in the story, hoping the right man to win the girl, in this story, I’m rooting for Kate to survive and come out the other side. Huge difference.
Also, the authors pulled no punches when it came time to yank the emotional ties that bind us all together. Heartbreak Warfare is a phenomenal work of fiction, but please keep in mind that twenty-two veterans commit suicide every day and those people are who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. As we approach Veteran’s Day, please be thankful and mindful to those who have served our Country.

A Brand New Ending by Jennifer Probst

Ophelia Bishop was a lovestruck teenage girl when she and Kyle Kimpton chased their dreams to Hollywood. Kyle’s dreams came true. Ophelia’s did not. When Kyle chose his career over their relationship, Ophelia returned home to rural New York to run the family’s B & B—wiser, and more guarded against foolish fantasies. Now Kyle has come crashing back into her life, and all her defenses are down.

Kyle can’t think of a better place to write his latest screenplay than his hometown. After all, that was where he met the heart of his inspiration—his first love. He knows the damage he’s caused Ophelia, and he wants a chance to mend their relationship. If anyone can prove to Ophelia that happy ever afters aren’t only for the movies, it should be him.

As much as Ophelia’s changed, she still has feelings for Kyle. But her heart has been broken before, and she knows that Kyle could run back to Hollywood at any time. She gave up her dreams once, but maybe she can dare to change her own love story…one last time.

My Review: Ophelia Bishop, aka Tink, was in love with her brother Ethan’s best friend, Kyle Kimpton. Kyle had a rough time growing up in rural New York; his mother died while giving birth to him and his father, Patrick resented the fact that she chose her son’s life over her own. However, the more significant issue was Patrick’s alcoholism. Kyle always dreamed he would be a famous screenwriter in Hollywood and while he chased his dream, he thought Ophelia would pursue her dream of becoming a singer. The lovestruck teenagers take off to live their dreams in California, only one of them returns to New York to run the family’s Bed and Breakfast.

After ten years Kyle Kimpton needs to write his next story back at the place where it all started his hometown, so he calls his best friend, Ethan Bishop who gives him the all clear to come back home and stay at the Inn. There’s no place like home, but you can never go back there again, to the way things were. Things change, people change, and sometimes you get what you need, not what you want. A second chance at happiness, at the life they only dreamed of when they were teenagers, but will it be? Can you go back?

Jennifer Probst has been writing since the age of twelve. She writes what she loves, and knows, like romance and dogs. She often includes animals in all her tales; Hei-Hei is a Polish Chicken who is a rescued with an attitude. But he is only a small part of the managery of Harper Bishop; there are of course lots of dogs and horses that both Harper and Ethan rehabilitate. Jennifer also has a new group called the Ladies Who Write, sound familiar? I love the fact that she includes a part of her personal life into her novels. Get ready for another unusual second chance romance, and I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did.

Blurb:
Briggs,

Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart.
What you didn’t know was that I was breaking mine too.

I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and
everything would go back to the way it was . . .

Before the war.
Before the ambush.
Before you.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to
forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.

The truth is I’m lost without you.

I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground,
but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

All my love,
Scottie

EXCERPT:
“I need you to break my heart,” she declares, wringing her hands nervously. “Give
me a reason to hate you, because wanting you this way is…it’s ruining me. It’s
ruining my life.”

She is dead serious.
Lifting her chin, as if ready to take a blow, her turbulent eyes implore mine. “Tell me
about them. Tell me about all of the women you’ve been with since Germany.”

“No.” I shake my head. “Hell no.”

“Oh, please, Briggs. How long did you wait? A few days?” She laughs sarcastically. “I
bet you didn’t even make it a day.”

She’s coming out guns blazing, and I can see it’s physically killing her to do it.

“Are we playing the guessing game? Do I get to ask how many times you’ve fucked
your husband?”

“Sure,” she says with a shrug. “We’ll trade. You go first.”

She’s bluffing, and I’m calling her on it.

“Don’t do this, Scottie. You don’t really want to hear about that.”

“Humor me, Briggs.” Her eyes plead with mine. “I need to hear this.”

“Fine. You want the truth?”

She nods.

“Complete honesty?”

Again, she bobs her head.

She stands stock-still as I pace the small room, feeling the blood begin to boil
beneath my overheated skin.

Fuck it.
I stalk back toward her, stopping inches away. “You really want to know that there
have been so many that I’ve lost count? How they’re all blondes with blue eyes? But
the blue, it’s never right, and their smiles—all wrong.”

She swats at the fresh tears that trail down her cheeks as her lips begin to tremble.
Reaching out, she places a hand on my chest, and I know that she must feel the way
my heart is pounding against my rib cage, reaching for her. Always reaching for her.

I jerk myself away and brand that touch to memory.

In about forty-five seconds, my heart is going to implode. I start ticking them
down.

“You want me to tell you all about how I have to drink myself stupid, till their faces
blur enough that I can pretend…” I pause running a hand down my face. “So that I
can pretend they’re you? You want to know how fucking miserable I am? How when
I slide between their legs, I close my eyes, and it’s your face I see? How I’m always
careful not to kiss them because their lips are all wrong. How every time I finish I

want to fucking kill myself, because I can’t stand the pain of wanting the one woman
I can never have.”

Thirty seconds.

“Is that enough?” Her eyes snap to mine. “Hate me yet?”

Face crumbling, she gasps out a sob, wrapping her arms around her shoulders.

“Come on, Scottie. Let’s not kid ourselves. I’m still the same prick you hated when
we met. Nothing’s changed. I think we’ve romanticized this situation long enough,
don’t you?”

Taking another step away from her, I tilt my head. “You’re a housewife,” I say
snidely. “Someone else’s wife and I’m a career soldier. This isn’t exactly ideal.”

She flinches visibly, and my heart bottoms out.

Fifteen.

I cut my hand through the air. “At the end of the day, this was nothing but a big
mistake. And we never would have happened if—”

“Stop,” she cries out painfully, “stop, I’m good,” she whispers before rocketing
toward the door just as I reach for her, my fingers curling in the space she just left.
Handle in hand, she looks back at me with the sweep of her eyes until they meet
mine. That’s how we started, and it’s only fitting it’s how we should end. For the
moment, we’re right back there in the place we created, where we are perfect.
Where our souls line up without any visible smudge on the seams. In a place where
there is still so much love, so much that I can’t stop the tear that slides out before
batting it away with the back of my hand.

An identical tear runs down her cheek. “Thank you.”

Medicine Man by Saffron A. Kent

unnamed (1)Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.

It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long.

Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.

No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.

Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.

The medicine man.

WARNING: This book discusses sensitive issues including but not limited to, depression and suicide.

For me, this was one of the most antipated books for the year written by one of my favorite authors and was so thrilled to be granted an advance readers copy (ARC). The story is forbidden between a doctor and his patient not just any doctor but a Psychiatrist.  The story was slow to start however stay with it and soon all the vagueness becomes clear, some questions become clearer as you get further into the story.  Parts of this story is heart-wrenching, blubbering emotional mess, others are enlightenment and hopeful. I’m sure most people with have issues with this type of story, I’m happy it was written because there was a story behind and it needed to be written, not just for shits and giggles or shock and awe. However, you be the judge, read at your own risk.
