From homecoming crowns to wedding rings

Hunky bull rider Jude Campbell seems to have the world by the proverbial horns. But when the world champion returns to Celebration for his high school reunion, he's confronted by the ghosts he'd worked so hard to forget. Not to mention the high school love who got away…

Bridezilla wrangler Juliette Lowell is as gorgeous and genuine as she was as Jude's homecoming queen. And the spark between them burns as bright as ever. But Jules still smarts from Jude's betrayal years before. And as successful as he seems, Jude's struggling with the prospect of hanging up his spurs. But with his queen, Juliette, by his side, maybe this homecoming will take once and for all…


When love reunites, it’s beautiful to see! With the next book in the Celebration, TX series, we get the renegade Campbell sibling’s story! Jude left town to hit the rodeo circuit 10 years ago and never looked back … or so it seemed! Crossing paths with his high school sweetheart at Ethan & Chelsea’s wedding a few months ago after all of those years apart really got him to thinking … and when an injury took him out of the running for the year, he could think of no better place to visit than home!

Juliette Lowell might have gone away to school all those years ago, but her heart never ventured far from Celebration, and she soon came home and created a successful wedding planning business. She’s feeling unsatisfied though, and part of that has always been because of an unsatisfying love life. She tried to get over Jude after he moved on all those years ago, but no one ever quite measured up to the boy that stole her heart as a teenager.

Jude Campbell happens back into town just as their ten year high school reunion is ramping up, and it’s kind of fun to look back and recreate some of their memories from when they were homecoming king and queen together. He’s at a crossroads in his career and wishing for something more … she’s also looking to be more satisfied with her life — maybe reconnecting and rekindling the love neither of them was ever able to bury will be the answer??

Out of the shadows…

As the illegitimate secret daughter of royalty, Cat's life has been far from luxurious. After years of bullying, she's set against a return to her childhood home. But her princess half sister has mysteriously disappeared ahead of her engagement to charismatic King Alexander.

…into the bed of the king!

Secrets abound in this wayward royal tale! Cat and Alex are electrifying together! Each of their backgrounds are filled with unpleasantness that led them each to be who they are today. The passion they share is explosive and they forge such a sweet connection. I really enjoyed their story and can’t wait to catch up with what Princess Amelie has been up to in the upcoming conclusion of The Princess Seductions!

Cat Dubois spent her life hiding from the fact that she was the illegitimate secret daughter of royalty. Once she came of age and left her home country, she vowed never to return again … but now she’s been contacted because her half-sister, Princess Amelie has disappeared … and they need her look-a-like secret sister to fill in!

King Alexander of Bengaria has agreed to go to St. Galla to meet the Princess that his council wants him to take as his wife. He’s really not interested in the responsibility yet at this point in his life, but he feels he has to take the meeting and soothe the ruffled feathers. Circumstances lead to him meeting Cat before he’s supposed to be introduced to her as Princess Amelie and he’s quite taken with her. When he finds out she’s who they want him to wed, he just might have to reconsider based on the chemistry sizzling when she is near!


* Release Blast * LUCAS by Sawyer Bennett

Lucas (Cold Fury, Book #8) Sawyer Bennett Release Date: September 19, 2017



The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.

Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.

Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.
