TEMPTING TRISTAN (A (A sexy standalone M/M romance) by New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Melissa Foster
'I could literally feel the world tilt. The attraction, the chemistry, and the sparks fly. Never was there a doubt that these two would be together.' reviews A Soccer Mom's Book Blog
'What a great romance story. A well written detailed book that kept me reading to the last page. I never thought I would be into a m/m book but Melissa Foster has made this book enjoyable to read and wanting more at the end.' reviews Books, Dreams, Life
Tempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, lovable alphas from the Harborside Nights series.
Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try and figure out where he keeps going wrong. He knows his biggest fault—he leads with his heart, not his head—and that’s never going to change. But after several introspective weeks, he’s beginning to get a handle on things. That is, until badass heartthrob Alex Wells walks into his bar...
Alex has spent eight years in the Army, months in a hospital bed, and far too long hiding his sexual identity. He’s guilt-ridden, damaged, pissed off, and up for a Silver Star—for the incident that nearly cost him his life, and kept him from his grandmother’s funeral. But all he wants to do is forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn’t necessarily accept, and live the life he’s always dreamed of.
The chemistry between Tristan and Alex ignites from the moment they meet, and the more time they spend together the hotter the flames become. But the closer Tristan gets, the more Alex's walls go up, and when the two walk onto a military base, Tristan finds out Alex’s physical scars aren’t the ones that run the deepest.
HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real series of stand-alone romances that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting—most of the time. This series is written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster with LGBT themes.

Book Review - In the Line of Duty (Detective Madison Knight Series) by Author Carolyn Arnold plus $25 Paypal Cash Giveaway
'A hard hitting, emotional novel which covers the true meaning of comradeship and team spirit. When an off duty policeman is shot dead at a petrol station it causes ructions and resentment throughout the station. The loss of a close colleague stirs the full range of emotions from anger to sorrow. It also tears the relationship within the investigation squad to pieces.
The excellent descriptive writing brings the characters to life and the most impressive part of it is the human element that is protrayed and will touch the heartstrings of the reader. The investigation route takes us on a roller coaster of ride through a page turning twister of a thriller. You get a real feeling of what it is like to work and live in a close community like the police force, where everyone knows each others families and the tragedy runs deep.
A riveting read and if you like a thriller you need to read this book.'

He devoted his life to seeking justice. But would she get any for him?
It was an ordinary day for police officer Barry Weir. It was the end of shift, he was tired, and he just wanted to get home to his wife and kids. But someone had other plans for him, shooting him down and forcing him to make the ultimate sacrifice.
When news of Weir’s murder reaches the department, it leaves Detective Madison Knight and every cop in the Stiles PD itching for revenge. It cuts Madison’s boyfriend, colleague, and Weir’s childhood friend, Troy Matthews, deepest of all, driving him away from everyone he loves just when they need one another the most.
With evidence pointing to a gang-related drive-by, Madison and her team investigate the town’s seedy underbelly in search of justice for their fallen brother. But the deeper they dig, the more convoluted the case becomes. Now they need to figure out if this was a random shooting as part of a gang initiation, a straight-up hate crime, or a targeted kill. But with members of the Stiles PD under attack, they have to do it fast…before more officers pay with their lives.

The Fabulous at 50 Re-Experience from Dianna Bowes 'It includes many exercises to create your own wellness journal and life planner to make your dreams come true.' reviews Kate Campbell
'Partly autobiographical, partly a self-help book and partly a led discovery of your own life. It includes many exercises to create your own wellness journal and life planner to make your dreams come true. I'm a big believer in writing things down and planning. It'ss the best way to visualise and make things happen.
Bowes reminds us to let go of our plans we had made or those that didn't work out, and make room for new, better plans. But in order to do this, we need to take many other steps along the way. She leads us through this journey but allows room to make it your own.
One step for me is definitely letting go of false beliefs about self-worth. Dianna addresses this with ideas about how to silence that inner critic. This is so essential if you are to move forward, I believe. Learning to love yourself is hard, but we can learn to be kind to ourselves.
Bowes discusses gratitude, which has been a popular idea lately because it works. But she also talks about how our adversity can make us stronger, and that we need to express gratitude for that as well as the good things. My Nan always used to say that adversity builds character, and this reminded me of that.
Throughout the book are little anecdotes and larger stories by other women, to give these women a voice and the ability to own their own story. It also reminds us, as Dianna points out many times in the book, that we are not alone.
This book leads you through how to dream big and make those dreams come true by learning to think creatively. Unlocking your creativity will ultimately produce startling results in all areas of your life.
In the last couple of years, I have come to accept the maxim about no emotion is a negative one, you are allowed to feel whatever you feel. If you are sad, then you are sad. The problem, of course, is learning to express emotions in a constructive rather than a destructive way. Bowes discusses how to harness emotions like anger and use them in a proactive, not reactive, manner.
Another really important concept addressed is that of honouring our past and those who helped us develop. But also letting go of our past and forgiving. Dianna also tells us to be a bit of a rebel and learn to say no when it's not best for you.
I have written myself a little note here that I really liked Chapter 3 and the test. Now you will need to read it for yourself and find out why.
No wellbeing book is complete without discussing how we reward ourselves for doing well. There are more guided ideas and discussion around this.
When you have finished you can put on your theme song and dance. :)'
