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.

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.

Secrets by Aleatha Romig

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground.

Passionate couple having sex

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

Woman on bed

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Izzy As Is by Tracie Banister

The party is over for bikini model Izzy Alvarez. For six years she’s made a good living by flaunting her God-given assets on runways and in front of cameras, but now as she approaches the big 3-0, the bodacious Latina is shocked to learn she’s aged out of the profession that’s kept her in mojitos, mani/pedi’s, and designer thongs. What’s a girl with a taste for the finer things in life and no marketable skills to do?

Getting a regular job is too boring to even consider, so Izzy decides to follow in the footsteps of her newly-engaged frenemy and become a trophy wife. Although she’s desperate and too broke to get a chipped nail fixed, Izzy still has standards for her future husband, which means no uggos, no vertically-challenged guys, and no geezers who need to pop a blue pill to perform in the bedroom. Enlisting the aid of her computer whiz nephew and her closest pals, Izzy goes on the prowl for a rich, marriage-minded man, encountering likely candidates in a lot of unlikely places.

The high life she’s dreamed of may be within reach when Izzy meets a charming, successful man who’s not only hotter than a steamy summer night in Miami but ready to settle down. Now all Izzy has to do is make sure her loud, crazy Cuban family doesn’t scare off el hombre perfecto—oh, yeah, and squelch those pesky, romantic feelings she keeps having for the sweet, cash-strapped guy she’s known forever.

Will Izzy’s hunger for money win out, or will her fiery heart demand to be heard?

About the Author: Tracie Banister

An avid reader and writer, Tracie Banister has been scribbling stories since she was a child, most of them featuring feisty heroines with complicated love lives like her favorite fictional protagonist Scarlett O’Hara. Her work was first seen on the stage of her elementary school, where her 4th grade class performed an original holiday play that she penned (Like all good divas-in-the-making, she, also, starred in and tried to direct the production.) Her dreams of authorial success were put on the backburner when she reached adulthood and discovered that she needed a “real” job in order to pay her bills. Her career as personal assistant to a local entrepreneur lasted for 12 years. When it ended, Tracie decided to follow her bliss and dedicate herself to writing full-time. Her debut novel, the Hollywood-themed BLAME IT ON THE FAME, was released in January, 2012. And she’s following that up with the fun summer read, IN NEED OF THERAPY.

Tracie Banister

My Review: So many first for me with this book, reading this author and having such strong opinions about the main character, Izzy Alvarez, mostly dislike loathing, and contempt. Not really sure if I wanted to continue reading the story. Then I stopped and thought about my reactions and have to say if anyone could get me to react this way that is some damn good writing to invoke all those emotions.  So I continued reading and have to say I’m very glad I did, not that Izzy redeemed herself or her qualities (lack of) but she became more of a human being when she stopped trying so hard. This also reminded me of an old colleague, also Cuban-American and her ideas of getting a second husband (smiles). Tracie gave us some great one-liners, some laugh-out-loud moments, and some food for thought, especially if you have strong reactions to characters. Thank you so much for allowing me to read your work. ****
