In READ, WRITE, LOVE...
Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller--that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna's come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can't get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she's just stopping by to say thank you, but the steamy afternoon sparks a wild and sexy ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s Leif’s eighth summer going viking with his father on their ship the Kraken—and he’s had enough. For as long as Leif can remember, his father has claimed to be a descendant of Ægir, god of the sea, and has exploited their shape changing ability—all this to amass enough gold to gain entrance into the ocean god’s halls. Leif hopes that time’s drawing near so he can free himself from Ragna’s domineering shadow.

 

On the green hills of Éire, Eilish is content learning traditional folk cures from her father until a Finn-Gall raid disturbs the peace. Desperate to protect Eilish from harm, her father cuts her hair and disguises her in his old clothing before she’s ripped from the only home she’s ever known. Sold as a thrall in Duiblinn, she must hide out as a young man on a ship full of barbarians.

 

Now Eilish, who fears she’ll become Ægir’s next sacrifice, and Leif, who isn’t prepared to stand up against his father’s powerful wrath, must face the tides of change—no matter how ominous they may seem.

Meet Addison Cole, author of the new Sweet with Heat romance series. Sweet and clean romance with a dash of heat!

Do you love sweet romance?
Meet Addison Cole, author of the new Sweet with Heat romance series. Sweet and clean romance with a dash of heat!
 
✫ ✯ ✬ Who is Addison Cole? ✫ ✯ ✬
Addison Cole is New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's sweet alter ego (pen name)!
 
For years, fans of Melissa's Love in Bloom series (featuring the Snow Sisters, Bradens, Remingtons, Seaside Summers, and more), have been asking for "sweet" or "clean" versions of the books so they could share them with friends and family who enjoy sweet romance without explicit scenes or harsh language. Now, Melissa's fans can share the same emotional stories they have come to love by sharing Addison's Sweet with Heat series (no explicit scenes or harsh language)!

Melissa says...
'Under the name Addison Cole, I will be releasing each of my beloved, and steamy, Love in Bloom titles in a "Sweet with Heat" version. The new Sweet with Heat series has no explicit love scenes or harsh language, but it is not an inspirational or “wholesome” series. My voice is naturally passionate, and because of that, the stories convey all of the heat you expect between two people in love (without any explicit scenes). The stories and characters in Sweet with Heat remain mostly the same as the Love in Bloom series, however, in addition to the omission of sex and cursing, there are other differences. Since I am starting the Addison Cole catalog with Seaside Summers and not with the Snow Sisters (the very first series within the Love in Bloom 60+ book romance collection), readers who have read the Love in Bloom series might notice a few differences in the positioning of certain characters.'

Book Review - Jesus and Magdalene by João Cerqueira

Jesus and Magdalene - Joao Cerqueira

Our Beck Valley Book Review - Jesus and Magdalene by João Cerqueira
"Another masterpiece from a very humorous and satirical writer who will be very popular and in my opinion is the new version of our British writer Tom Sharpe.

The authors reincarnation of Jesus in modern day life and the trials and tribulations he would face and how he would deal with them is first rate. The novel starts off with Mary and the 12 disciples (apostles) fighting against gm crops and trying to influence the local church and people not to use them. Head of the group is Judas who wants full on direct action and then along comes Jesus with his pacifism.

Using study and teachings from the bible the novelist brings them to life in our modern day lives and gives us a timely reminder of how change no matter what it is can have a devastating effect not just now but for future generations as well.

As a politician recently stated a lot can be learnt from humour and puts the mind in a more relaxed state to comprehend the full consequences of any actions that are implemented. This is what I believe the author is trying to achieve.

A strong message that also comes across is which is the right path to follow to achieve your goal or influence people to believe in your idea/concept, do you use aggression (Judas character ) or pacifism (Jesus character ). Very nature of the rudimental teachings of the holy book.

This novel and storyline along with the characters portraits would not be possible without the author’s immense knowledge and research into the bible. Being a Christian at no point in this storyline was I offended, I really believe through the humour the writer has given us a timely reminder of what virtues are important today."

Time to enjoy new #romance Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster (Bayside Summers Book 1) plus ebook giveaway - 2 winners!!
 
Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.
 
BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.
 
In Bayside Desires...
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.
 
Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.
 
Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.
 
All Bayside books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:
Coming Soon...

Bayside Escape

In SLOPE OF LOVE...
Olympic gold medalist skiers Jayla Stone and Rush Remington have been best friends for years. They've seen each other at their best and worst and have kept each other's secrets without fail. Only there's one secret Rush has kept close to his chest. After months of introspection, Rush realizes he's been filling his bed but not tending to his heart. He's changed his womanizing ways, and the only woman who can fill his heart has been right by his side all this time.
.
Years of intimate conversations and the sharing of hopes and dreams collide when Rush reveals his secret, and one toe-curling kiss changes everything between Rush and Jayla. They're no match for the passion that kiss ignites, or the pull of true love. But being Rush's best friend means knowing all about his revolving bedroom door--and Jayla has a secret of her own that could jeopardize her career and her relationship with Rush. Even their love may not be enough to overcome Rush's past or secure Jayla's future.
