New Release! GATOR BAIT (Miss Fortune Series #5) by Jana DeLeon

Gator Bait

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon, the fifth book in the hilarious Miss Fortune series.

Things are starting to look up for Fortune Redding. Even though her life was at stake, the CIA assassin had balked at taking on a new identity in Sinful, Louisiana. But instead of hating it like she’d thought she would, Fortune now has friends she cares about and just finished up an incredible first date with the sexiest deputy in the state. Sure, there’s been a murder or two that she’s gotten mixed up in since she arrived in town, but she’s hoping all of that is behind her.

But when someone almost kills Deputy Carter LeBlanc, Fortune tosses her dreams of peace and quiet into the muddy bayou and shifts back into being the deadly trained professional that she is. With the help of Ida Belle and Gertie, Fortune launches a manhunt, intending to find a killer before he tries again.

About Jana:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon was raised in southwest Louisiana among the bayous and gators. Her hometown is Carlyss, but you probably won’t find it on a map. Her family owned a camp located on a bayou just off the Gulf of Mexico that you could only get to by boat. The most important feature was the rope hammock hanging in the shade on a huge deck that stretched out over the water where Jana spent many hours reading books.
Jana and her brother spent thousands of hours combing the bayous in a flat-bottomed aluminum boat, studying the natural habitat of many birds, nutria and alligators. She would like you to know that no animals were injured during these “studies,” but they kept makers of peroxide in business.
Jana has never stumbled across a mystery or a ghost like her heroines, but she’s still hopeful.
She now resides in Dallas, Texas, with the most spoiled Sheltie in the world.

Last Day at 99c BROSLIN BRIDE by Dana Marton

(I work for the author.  But this book was awesome.)  4.7 stars on 85 reviews at Amazon!

From NY Times bestselling author Dana Marton:
I'm having a 99c Sale until Friday as part of my anniversary celebrations! THANK YOU for supporting me through 10 years and 40 books. Please share.

The worst time to be charged with murder is:

A. When you have no alibi for the night in question.
B. When you have no memory of the night in question.
C. When you told people you hated the victim.
D. When the detective is the 1st guy you ever slept with--which didn't end well.

Check all of the above for Luanne Mayfair. If it wasn't for bad luck, she wouldn't have any luck at all. Okay, maybe a little luck. As it turns out, Detective Chase Merritt doesn't hold grudges.

He still looks at Luanne just as he did in high school, except he's grown some serious 'hot cop' muscles--very distracting when Luanne is trying to avoid the very law Chase represents.

Is she the killer? Is she being framed? Is she the next victim? As Chase and Luanne race to find some answers, danger and heat ratchet up in this fast-paced romantic mystery that will stop your heart one second, then steal it in the next.

SLIM to NONE ( A Cedar Tree novel) by Freya Barker

(I received a copy from the author in exchange for consideration of a review.)

Since moving to beautiful Cedar Tree, Colorado, Emma Young, mother of one adult daughter, has worked from home doing some online bookkeeping and baking for her best friend's diner to supplement her disability pension. Life has been pretty good, that is until she received a strange phone call that starts an alarming chain of events.

Investigator Gus Flemming is hot on the trail of a bail skip with organized crime connections that bring him to Cedar Tree. Once there, the focus of his investigation lands squarely on the gently rounded shoulders of a vivacious red haired Emma, whose physical limitations have done nothing to dampen her zest for life.

When it becomes clear that Emma is at risk, Gus does't hesitate to step in and protect her. Call it a job with some very hot benefits......

Slim to None is the first book by author Freya Barker, and it was a delightful, steamy surprise. It features a smart, feisty, sexy heroine and a gruff, rough, sweetheart of a hero.  
The book starts with one hell of a sexy wrong number, waking up Emma's dormant libido.  Emma has been so busy living her life, she hasn't made room for intimacy in her life.  Shortly after the phone call Emma's life is turned completely upside down as she finds herself mixed up in a criminal investigation as the target of a desperate bad guy.  The suspense starts right away and keeps the story moving and everyone guessing.

I loved Emma.  She's stubborn, smart, brave, and wants to do the right thing.  And the red-hot romance with Gus, one of the most open-minded, loving and kind heroes I have ever read, was so sweet, steamy, sexy and romantic - the whole package.  I loved that her physical disability was coincidental to the story, and not the focus.  As someone who has similar issues, I found the plot believable and realistic, making the story even better and more intense, keeping me reading way past my bedtime. 

Next, please!

About the author:
Freya has always been creative. Involved in music and dance when she was younger, she followed it up with painting, cake design, quilting, and has most recently added cover design. Now the Dutch-born Canadian mother of two has found her voice - writing.

Freya Barker is the pen name for a well-respected reviewer/blogger, to who - as an avid reader, the next step to pen a book of her own seemed only natural.

Driven to make her stories about 'real' people, Freya's characters are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, hot monkey sex and some thrills and chills in their lives!
