Author: D.D. Lorenzo 
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Suspense 
Release Date: September 19, 2017 
Cover Designer: Regina Wamba



Declan Sinclair was known for his dark looks and perfect physique, but no more. A tragic accident destroys his image, and he puts an end to his relationship with the woman he loves.
He’s tortured.
Aria Cole is moving on. Loving Declan filled her, then nearly destroyed her. She is moving on without him and vows that she’ll, never again, give her heart to another.
She’s determined.
The end of Declan and Aria’s relationship played right into the queen of the New York fashion scene; Marisol Franzi. She always gets what she wants, and she wants Declan. The only thing standing in her way is that he's still in love with Aria.
Big mistake.


DD Lorenzo aspires every day to be a better writer than she was the day before. From childhood, she has been more an empath than she cared to be. Sensing the emotional connections between family and friends, she wrote her first story when she was six years old. The gift continued into adulthood and with the encouragement of a few New York Times Bestselling Authors, she took a leap of faith and published. In her spare time, she loves sinking her toes in the sand on the eastern shores of Maryland and Delaware. She lived a love story with her late husband, Mike, and now considers him her guardian angel. When she isn't writing she enjoys the company of her eclectic family, friends, and her adventurous King Charles Cavalier puppy, Sawyer. The only things she doesn't like are judgmental people and okra. You can find DD on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Goodreads.

Romance Between the Pages’ Weekly Podcast Interview – Sept 15, 2017


Ever wondered about the personalities behind your favorite books? Victoria Danann's new podcast with Riley J. Ford has an incredible lineup of authors booked through the spring. No question is out of bounds. Check it out!

THIS WEEK'S BEST SELLING AUTHOR...
CLAIRE CONTRERAS!

Claire doesn't like to talk about herself. Because of this, she asked a friend of hers to write her bio. This is what she got:

Claire is caring, smart, witty, and funny as heck. Despite being a New York Times Best Selling Author of a popular contemporary romance series, Claire doesn't read many romance novels. However, when she sits down to write, those are the ones that pour from her fingers. Much to her displeasure, we like to say she's a romantic at heart.

She is a breast cancer survivor who lives in Miami with her good looking husband, two adorable boys, three bulldogs, and two stray cats that she refuses to admit are hers (even though they live on her porch and she continues to feed them). When she's not writing, she's always lost in a book (the more suspenseful, the better).

Release Day Blast: The Cinderella Fantasy


Book Blurb:

A princess who has lost her faith in love . . .

Lucy Linden’s prince charming (a.k.a. her fiancé) disappeared three months before the Big Day. Determined to pick up the pieces, she dives into the world of online dating. But the only men interested in a woman whose day job involves playing Cinderella leave Lucy looking for an exit strategy before the main course. And the man rushing to her rescue isn’t the solution to her problems. Jared is a walking, talking fantasy—if Lucy’s daydreams began and ended in the bedroom. No one would ever mistake South Florida’s bored billionaire bachelor for a long-term prince.

A man willing to risk everything to prove he’s her prince . . .

Jared Mitchell pushes the limits, in the boardroom and in bed. When his best friend and business partner’s little sister sends up red distress flares, he’s thrust into the role of pseudo-big brother. He’s never had a thing for Cinderella. But now he’s fighting his desire to make the princess his—even if he has to risk his empire to deliver her happy-ever-after ending.



Excerpt:

She pulled her hand free from his and crossed her arms in front of her chest. She wore the white lace shirt like body armor. “And if I tell Finn you spent your lunch hour interrupting my date?”

“Your date was over.” He stepped closer and inhaled her sweet vanilla scent. “What you tell your brother, that’s up to you.”

“So you didn’t drive over here on some misguided rescue mission?”

He raised his hand to her cheek and brushed his fingers over her skin. “I came here to kiss you.”

Book Blitz: Sweet Sacrifice



Title: Sweet Sacrifice
Author: L.D. Rose 
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: September 13, 2017 
Cover Designer: Wren Taylor
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC. 





Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he is forbidden to see her, he cannot resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.

As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.

The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?





Bash’s gaze caught on a couple on the dance floor, the sight of her sinking into him like hooks and bringing him to a standstill.

With her dark curls springing over her shoulders, she spun across the hardwood, her pale gray dress flowing around her. Much like in his recent vision of her, she tipped her head back and laughed, beautiful, stunning, her smile as bright as the yellow calla lilies tucked in her hair. She swayed with a man in dress whites, a Marine, another fucking soldier she didn’t belong with. And as the rain of realization became a downpour of comprehension, he remembered the engagement, where Claude proposed to Lucille—at their wedding—right before Bash left for another tour of Afghanistan.

“Bash?” Gabriel stepped in front of him, blocking his view, pale eyes narrowed.

Bash’s hand slammed into Gabriel’s chest, pushing him away as he lurched forward. Gabriel reacted faster, though, snatching his arm and wrenching him back at least four feet. Bash lunged again and the Arc’s hand fisted in his white button-down shirt.

“Don’t,” Gabriel growled, all humor draining from his angular face and setting his expression in stone. “Do not.”

Bash’s heart punched at the angel’s fist, every fiber of his being burning with the urge to run to her, to wrap his arms around her and feel her body against his one more time. Envy, rage, longing, and sadness blasted through him in a toxic tornado of emotion ready to whip this place into oblivion.

He nearly ground his molars into pulp. “Let. Me. Go.”

“You are dead, Sebastian. You’re no longer part of this world. All you’ll do is bring her pain, bring yourself pain. Don’t do this.” Twin streams of air whistled from the Arc’s nostrils as he shook his head. “I should’ve never brought you here.”

Bring him pain? More pain than he’d already endured? No.

No.

Sunday Post #6: Regarding My TBR List

The are currently twenty-five books on my "Goodreads Want-to-read shelf". Whether it be an ebook or a paperback, I only own nine of those books. Anybody that knows me would understand why this situation poses a challange for me.

So, how do I meet this challange?

It's simple.

I am going to refrain from purchasing any more books until I finish all nine books.
