Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.

Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.

Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.

But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.

 

Call Her Mine is the first book in a new spin-off series Harmony Pointe from Melissa Foster. You will recognize some of the characters from the neighboring Sugar Lake series. This story centers around a billionaire venture capitalist and his book store owning best friend in a delectable friends to lovers/ surprise baby shake up.

Apparent unrequited love sets the scene as Aurelia moved a town over to get away from fawning over the man whom she adores but can’t have. The passion she has for opening this new book store is music to a readers ears as details are swirling around us. Life as she knew it is over!

Unbeknownst to her, Ben has been equally in love with her and just biding his time for the perfect opportunity to finally make his move. Her desertion of their routine threw him a curve ball, but the arrival of an unknown baby just might be the end of it all.

I highly recommend this story for anyone who enjoys a close knit group of family and friends in a steamy, small town romance sort of feel. Melissa Foster is the queen of wrapping characters around your heart! Just when I thought we were heading towards that happily ever after with no clouds in sight, she gutted me then beautifully put me back together again. Such an emotional journey!

Call Her Mine Excerpt
 
“I’ve got to go.” She tried to pull away, but he dug his fingers into her knotted muscles, releasing tension and drawing a moan from her traitorous lungs.

“Don’t run off,” he coaxed. “I wasn’t kidding. You are my best friend. I trust you with my secrets, and I love who you are.”

Hope bubbled up inside her, and she closed her eyes, glad he couldn’t see her face. Had their time finally come? “Really?”

“Of course,” he said, and she heard the smile in his voice.

That made her feel all sorts of good, and the truth came easily. “I love who you are, too.”

He leaned his chin on her shoulder, his hard chest pressing against her back as he said, “I especially love who you are when you’re making me breakfast.”

“Ugh!” She pushed to her feet, but he snagged her wrist, giving her the puppy-dog eyes she’d never been able to resist. The ones that said, Please don’t leave me. “Ben,” she warned.

Relsy,” he pleaded.

“I am not making you breakfast. I have to go.” She yanked her hand away and said, “And I’m busy for the next few weeks. Actually, for a lifetime, so . . .” She shoved her feet into her red Converse sneakers and grabbed her purse.

“I seriously have to make my own breakfast?” Ben pushed to his feet and stretched, six-plus feet of hotness towering over her five-two frame. “But you make waffles better than I do.”

“I do a lot of things better than you. Don’t forget to call Aiden back.” Aiden was his business partner. He’d called Ben last night while they were watching a movie and Ben had made her laugh, causing tequila to come out of her nose, which had sent him into hysterics and rendered him unable to answer the call.

“That’s right.” He grabbed his phone from the table. “He was supposed to set up a meeting with our legal team.”

“For the hotel chain you’re buying?”

“Yeah. Hey, take my sweatshirt. It’s early. You’ll be cold.”

He pulled his sweatshirt over his head and tossed it to her, revealing a dusting of chest hair over muscular pecs and a treasure trail that disappeared beneath the waist of his low-slung jeans. His sweatshirt hit her in the chest and landed at her feet, reminding her she was staring.

Ben laughed. “Nice catch, Rels. Remind me not to pick you for my baseball team.”

“I don’t want to be on your team. You run the bases too slow,” she mumbled as she picked up his sweatshirt and tugged it over her head, inhaling his masculine scent. “I’m out of here.”

“How about cereal?” he asked with a wink. “I’ll make it.”

“Since when did you become so needy?”

A coy grin slid across his face. “I know that once you’re in my kitchen, there’s no holding back. You won’t let me eat crap when you can make something delicious.”

“Yeah, you should see me in the bedroom.” She felt her eyes bug out. She slammed her mouth closed, unable to believe what she’d said. She stormed through the hallway and out the door, followed by Ben’s laughter—and almost tripped over a basket. She leaned back, holding the door open, and hollered, “I think Willow left you muffins. There’s a basket on your porch.”

“Way to go, Willow,” he said as he strode down the hall. “Let’s see the goods.”

She realized she was staring at his bare chest again and snapped, “I’m taking the biggest muffin,” as if it was his fault he had great pecs and abs she wanted to lick, and bite, and—

Down, girl.

He cocked a grin and said, “Take as many as you’d like, but you’ll pay for them later.”

In my dreams.

 

 

Melissa Foster Author Interview
 

1) ”If a woman can’t find love in the quaint town of Harmony Pointe, it’s sure to find them…” —this is the tagline for your newest series Harmony Pointe. Tell us a bit about the town and these women who are finding love.

I love writing about close-knit small towns, where gossip is ripe, and embarrassing tales of youthful rascals abound. Harmony Pointe is nestled between Sweetwater and Port Hudson, New York, not far from the city. It offers grand views of mountains as far as the eye could see. Cobblestone streets, brick-front eclectic shops, and old-fashioned street lights add to the small town’s charm. Readers who are familiar with my Sugar Lake series will recognize Harmony Pointe as Derek Grant’s hometown.

2) What was the idea that sparked the beginning of the series? 

I have been itching to write Ben Dalton and Aurelia Stark’s story since I first read about them in WILD BOYS AFTER DARK: LOGAN and BAD BOYS AFTER DARK: MICK (Billionaires After Dark series) and THE REAL THING (Sugar Lake series). Harmony Pointe is a Sugar Lake spin-off, and in the Sugar Lake series several of Ben’s siblings find love. It was finally Ben’s turn.

3) For longtime fans, can you tell us what this series has in common with your previous books? How is the series different from what you have written before?

Avid readers of my Love in Bloom series will have met Ben and Aurelia in several previous books and series. Their story is filled with humor and sexy times, and this one wallops the reader with an ugly-cry worthy punch. This family is very female centric, which is different than most of my other series. The exception is the Montgomerys, cousins to the Daltons, in which the males are also outnumbered. #GirlPower (Bradens & Mongtomerys series).

4) Why was it important that Ben and Aurelia launched this series in Call Her Mine?

Ben and Aurelia were too loud for me to ignore! They were finally ready to share.

5) There are friends-to-lovers romances and then there is Ben and Aurelia who are closer-than-close. Seriously, these two just about live in each other’s heads. What takes them so long to realize that they belong together?

Have you ever had a friend who you love so much that you can’t imagine life without them? I have. It instills a certain level of fear—what if you risk that friendship, lay your feelings on the line, and the other person doesn’t feel the same? True friends, the ones who “get” you, who accept you at your worst, bitchiest states, and at your best, are hard to come by. Risking the friendship is terrifying. I think this was the case for Ben and Aurelia—Plus there’s Ben and his damn planning…

That man made me crazy.
I love him so hard!
6) When romance finally (finally!) is in the cards for these two, they have one very tiny situation that turns up—Ben’s previously unknown infant daughter. What was it like to create an insta-family for this pair? 
It was so frigging fun I wish I could do it again! I loved every second of writing this book. I was able to strip Ben and Aurelia down to their most raw selves and emotions, and then watch as they found their new footings together. It was glorious.7) While it is unfair to ask if you have a favorite hero, we’d love to know what makes Ben so special to you. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes—arrogant, funny, introverted, brilliant, average, overly serious, etc. Ben is like the guy you see sitting at the end of a bar in a fine suit and think he’s probably taken, or at the least too refined to be fun. And then he opens his mouth and melts you, or makes you laugh, at every turn. He’s protective, but not in a bullying way. Don’t even get me started with that man holding a tiny baby, falling in love with her page after page. I’ve got goosebumps just thinking about it.

My teammate's incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn't get that memo.

After our team won the championship, and plenty of alcohol, our flirting turned physical and I took her to bed.

Shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake. She thinks I don't remember that night—but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I’ll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips…

And now I’ve spent three months trying to get her out of my head. Which has been futile, because I’m starting to understand she’s the only girl I’ll ever want.

I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won’t be easily convinced.

That’s okay, because I’m good under pressure, and this time, I’m playing for keeps.

Get ready to meet your new favorite hot jocks in this series of stand-alone novels. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances is perfect for you!

 

Playing For Keeps is the debut book in Kendall Ryan’s new Hot Jocks series and centers around a pro hockey player and a preschool teacher who happens to be his best friend and teammates little sister.

Justin Brady is quick to catch the reader’s eye because not only is he a sexy hockey player, but he also has a softness that only comes through for Elise. He’s quick to try to protect her by pretending he doesn’t remember their time together when it’s obvious she’s full of regret.

Elise Parrish is used to being around hockey, but she’s not used to having to admit her feelings. When three months pass and they finally confront what each is feeling, a clandestine affair kicks off and things are about to get serious when they have to decide whether to go public to her brother.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast paced, steamy gem. The hockey was a little light in the plot, but the bad boy players were front and center and a lot of fun to get to know. Looking forward to Owen’s story next!

Of all the taxis in all of Cape Town, Sophia Roux had to stumble into his.

She should be at her “perfect” sister’s bedside, awaiting the arrival of the newest member of her family. But the thought of spending hours at the hospital with her suffocating relatives has Sophia hailing the first taxi she sees. Only to realise too late that the man at the wheel of her getaway car is the most unpleasant one she’s ever had the misfortune to meet.

Parker Jones, the handsome yet surly driver in question, is used to dealing with baggage of the family variety. And it just so happens he’s in need of temporary escape from his own. Witty banter with a beautiful—if exasperating—woman while chauffeuring her around the city on a gorgeous spring day makes for an ideal break from reality.

But a lot can happen in twenty-four hours: babies can be born, family can reconnect. And maybe the most unlikely pair can fall in love.

 

One Day to Fall is the second book in Therese Beharrie’s One Day To Forever series and centers around a freelance journalist with a side job driving for a car service along with a human resources pro. On an emotional day for them both, they find themselves colliding and hanging on for dear life as they each undergo deep introspection of who and what they are.

Parker Jones has been hit with a bombshell that is going to change his life forever and he’s not sure how to process it all. He’s in a surly mood as he leaves the hospital and runs smack into Sophia.

Sophia Roux is feeling the pressure of holding her family together for years and now finds herself resentful as she’s being made to cater to her “perfect” sister who’s about to give birth. She happens to jump into the car of a man who just might have an attitude to rival the biting edge of her own.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a snarky banter that keeps you smiling as the characters try to act like they don’t like each other, when it’s obvious to all looking on that they do. The day drug out a tad, but the feel of the story was enriching and delightful!

He hates the corporate world.

Now they have to work together
on the one job that could
make or break them both...

Connor became a flight medic
for one reason, and
one reason only.
To help people.
If he can keep his head down
and his past in the past while he's at it?
Even better.

Until Harlow appears to upend his world
with an offer he can't refuse.

She's calculating. Composed.
Scalpel-sharp.

And she'll stop at nothing to make
her father's business successful.

Even if that means teaming up with Connor
to turn around a failing clinic.

He shouldn't like her.
He definitely shouldn't want her.
But the more they work together
the less he's able to resist.

But Connor's secrets run deep.
Will Harlow's ambition ruin him,
or will she be his salvation?

 

Between Me And You is book three in Kimberly Kincaid’s Remington Medical series and revolves around a high powered business woman and a laid back flight medic in a classic enemies to lovers story.

Connor has a been a favorite throughout the entire series because he’s kind, he’s nurturing and best of all, he’s just fun to be around. In this book we get a deeper side of Connor and learn all about what life has thrown at him in the past and the secrets he’s been keeping … even from his beloved hospital family.

Harlow is a bit machine like. She is no nonsense, cutting and a bit like she’s a robot spewing exactly what her daddy taught her and without a mind of her own. She has just been waiting for the likes of Connor to bring out the simmering woman inside of her and when he does, we see this cold fish warming up and showing the person underneath in so many new ways.

I highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a fast paced, character driven story with lots of steam and a whole lot of heart. You can’t go wrong with any book in the series, but Connor was particularly special.

From USA Today best-seller Kimberly Kincaid comes an enemies-to-lovers story full of emotion and heat. This full-length romance features a muscle-bound veteran flight medic and a smart, tart female CEO finding happily ever after…the hard way.

 

EXCERPT:

Christ, her need was pouring off her in waves, each one of them slamming into his chest. Without breaking the connection of their mouths, Harlow reached down, yanking his shirt up just far enough to close her fingers around the waistband of his scrubs.

It took everything he had—and he really meant everything—to capture her fingers with his own and bring them to stillness. “Wait,” he said against her lips.

“No.” She grasped the hem of her sweater, yanking the heavy material up and over her head. The move made her hair wild around her face, but not enough to cover the emotion there.

“Yes.”

Harlow froze, her eyes glinting in the low light. “Connor, I want—”

“I know what you want, sweetheart. But I want something, too.”

Her brows gathered in question, and he cupped her face to answer.

“Let me in, Harlow.” He tipped her chin back, kissing the juncture where her jaw came together by her ear. “If all you want to do tonight is feel, then let me make you feel perfect. Slow down and let me make you feel everything.”

 

ABOUT KIMBERLY:

When she’s not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as “The Pleather Bomber”, she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book.

She needs his protection…

But can he protect his heart?

Radio personality Kelly Bonner isn’t convinced she needs a bodyguard, especially one as intensely good-looking as Detective Donovan Walsh. Yet beneath Donovan’s tough-guy facade is a man struggling to raise his sister’s children. A man Kelly could care about…if he’d let her. Now she’ll have to find a way to convince her big, bad bodyguard that his family—and his heart—are safe in her hands.

 

Falling for Her Bodyguard is book four in Amy Vastine’s Grace Note Records series and revolves around a radio host and a detective who are thrown together out of necessity when she finds herself with some attention from a fan that she doesn’t much want.

Donovan was particularly fun to get to know because he is sort of a loner who is thrust into caring for his sister’s kids … one delightful little angel and one surly teenager. He thinks he’s doing a terrible job and hasn’t a clue how to improve until Kelly begins to guide him.

Kelly is a free spirit. She loves her job, she loves life in general, and she’s very outgoing. She’s not used to having to watch her back, and she doesn’t like the vulnerability that it brings to the surface.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet romance with a strong family foundation, lots of emotion and a hint of intrigue. The characters were very well developed, the story line was endearing and the overall outcome very satisfying. Really enjoyed watching this happily ever after evolve!

four-stars

Motherly love can drive her to the absolute edge…

For nine years, Drew Baker has been running from her brutal husband and the dark deeds of the night she left him. Focused on protecting her ten-year-old son, Drew reluctantly settles into a small town, eager to find proof of her husband’s true nature so she can stop looking over her shoulder.

But Drew is also on the run from her own terrible crimes—ones that mean prison and separation from her son should the police catch up to her before her husband does. If only she could remember that night and what really transpired…

Without warning, the unthinkable happens, and Drew is plunged into the most nightmarish situation a woman and mother could imagine. Desperate to save her child, Drew takes matters into her own hands, proving that anyone is capable of darkness, and nowhere is safe for those who fear themselves.

 

A satisfying debut thriller! J.M. Winchester normally writes happily-ever-afters under another name, so I wasn’t sure what to expect going into her first psychological thriller, but she held her own quite well. The back story was secretive enough to keep us guessing well into the book, and the turmoil the heroine and her child faced was riveting. Winchester stayed a bit true to her roots and left us with a semblance of a HEA with a twist, but there was also a little quirk involved. Recommended to anyone wanting some mystery and mind games without all the gore.

All the Lovely Pieces is a thriller centering around a mother who’s been on the run with her child for years from a brutal husband and a night she can’t exactly remember. The back story is given in small doses while weaving her current life in the mix as well as the husbands current machinations.

First there was pain, and now there is just… nothing. No one can ever understand the losses I’ve suffered. A solitary existence that consists of my work and the empty house that serves as a constant reminder of all I have lost.

After months of paralyzing emptiness, I turn to The Wicked Horse so I can feel something. Anything, really. Any shred of emotion that will explain why I’m still here. Any justification for why my life was spared and theirs were not.

It’s all in vain. Not even the debauchery of the notorious sex club can fill the hollowness that consumes me.

Until she walks in.

Absolutely perfect. Gorgeous and bends to my will. Gives me her body willingly, while expecting nothing more from me than the pleasure I offer her. And the more she gives, the more I find myself wanting to take.

Wanting to crawl out of my personal hell for this wicked angel.

 

Hold on to your heart-strings ladies! Wicked Angel is the sixth book in Sawyer Bennet’s delectable Wicked Horse Vegas series and is a second chance at love story between a neurosurgeon who once had it all, and a hairstylist who has yet to find true love.

Benjamin is particularly compelling because he has closed himself off from the world since the tragedy that took all that he lived for away. He is numb to life, and watching him slowly start to wake up once Elena comes into his world is riveting.

Elena doesn’t trust herself anymore after picking a bunch of losers, but she can’t turn her back on the instant pull she feels towards Benjamin. Their connection is full of heat and sass.

If you love an angst ridden hero who isn’t so sure he ever wants to put his heart on the line again after heartbreak, this story is for you. You can’t go wrong with any book in the series so far, but this one was particularly emotional and I highly recommend it.

A pregnant heiress, a bachelor billionaire…

…an unlikely family?

In this Manhattan Babies story, Trent Sigmund’s discovered Sabrina McCallan’s shocking secret: she’s pregnant! As his best friend’s sister, Trent’s compelled to help her. But offering Sabrina his private jet to track down her errant ex wasn’t supposed to become a whirlwind trip of Europe… And it certainly wasn’t supposed to awaken an attraction that makes him long to take this unexpected chance and build it into the perfect family!

Manhattan Babies trilogy
Book 1 — Carrying the Billionaire’s Baby
Book 2 — A Diamond for the Single Mom
Book 3 — Falling for the Pregnant Heiress

 

A delightful read! Falling for the Pregnant Heiress is Book 3 in Susan Meier’s Manhattan Babies series and is a brother’s best friend with a twist of a surprise baby story. I was quickly enthralled with the characters and along for the ride towards their happily ever after.

Trent Sigmund was quick to grab my heart. He was the first to notice when she was out of sorts and stepped up to help her in honor of his best friend. As his character developed he only endeared himself further with a sad back story. Really enjoyed him!

Sabrina McCallan is attractive because she steps up and honors the things she feels like she needs to accomplish and doesn’t let a knock here and there get her down.

Really enjoyed Trent and Sabrina’s story!

Isolated in the deep Adirondack wilderness…

Their mission—escape!

When Detective Dalton Stevens follows his estranged wife, Erin, to the Adirondack Mountains, neither of them expects to be entrusted with intel that must be shared with Homeland Security. They are forced to begin a harrowing wilderness trek to outrun the terrorists who’ll kill for the secret. Dalton’s real objective—to reconcile with headstrong Erin—happens by chance…when one bullet changes everything.

 

Edge of your seat suspense! Adirondack Attack is the second book in Jenna Kernan’s Protectors at Heart series and is an action packed second-chance at love story. The suspense heats up quickly and doesn’t stop!

Dalton grabbed my attention from the start because he truly seems like he loves his estranged wife and was clueless that she was at the end of her rope.

Erin seems tough at first because we come into their relationship after all of the turmoil has occurred, but as the story unfolds, we realize what drove her to say she was done.

This book and the one prior took place in the great outdoors, showcasing national parks and gorgeous sites. It was fast pace, full of intrigue and satisfying. I’m looking forward to more in the series!

He came home a hero and lost the only woman he’s ever loved...

John
I have no idea how to survive without my beloved Ava. She had no choice but to move on with her life during my six-year deployment and has now married Eric. I hate him for taking her from me. I’d prefer to wallow in my depression and heartbreak, but the whole damned world wants a piece of the SEAL Team leader who helped capture the world’s most-wanted terrorist. I need help handling the relentless requests, and when Ava sends her new sister-in-law to manage the media circus for me, I’m prepared to hate her on principle. Her brother took my Ava. What else do I need to know about her?

Julianne
It takes five seconds to realize Ava’s ex is going to be the most complicated and difficult client I’ve ever had, but the opportunity to represent the most celebrated man in the world could make my career. I’m determined to do the job, even if I dislike John from the moment I meet him. And I like everyone. So much so that my brothers worry about me being exploited by those who would take advantage of my unwavering love for others. But John… He’s in a class by himself, and his bitterness is a festering wound that I begin to wish I could somehow fix for him. The more time we spend together, the more our mutual disdain morphs into something that feels an awful lot like desire. There’s no way I can want this man, or so I tell myself, and when Eric finds out I’ve developed feelings for the man causing trouble in his new marriage, well…

That’s going to be a hot mess.

The hotly anticipated follow up to Five Years Gone is here!

 

I’ve so been waiting for this book! One Year Home is the highly anticipated follow-up to Marie Force’s beloved Five Years Gone novel that stole all of our hearts last year. It’s a reawakening of a lost soul with a chunk of forbidden romance added into the mix and quite the emotional roller coaster.

John West already had my heart on a string going into the story, and watching him mourn for Ava was heart wrenching. I really enjoyed Ava and Eric’s happily ever after in the first book, but watching John be the one left behind is hard.

Julianne Tilden is a breath of fresh air. She brings each scene to life when confronting this broken man and forcing him to live again. Their connection sparks early and often.

I highly recommend you read Five Years Gone prior to digging into this follow up story because the first book delivers the emotional punch to let you go into this book understanding the turmoil properly. Overall, the story line as a whole has been amazing and sincerely unputdownable! Amazing characters, great depth to the emotions portrayed by everybody involved and a joy to read!

 

 

 

Today we are celebrating the release of ONE YEAR HOME by Marie Force with a blog tour post. This is the highly-anticipated follow-up to the bestselling novel Five Years Gone. Check out some teasers and buy links for the book below.
