Author: A.M. Guilliams
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 31, 2019


Four words posed in a question started the beginning of our future.
Will you marry me?
Ten years of love and laughter, triumphs and failures, losses and gains later, and four words threatened to end it all.
Everything has a beginning and an end. I just never saw mine coming. Especially when I finally thought we were getting it all.
Until my husband and lifeline uttered….
I want a divorce.
Only I had four words of my own. Words that should be said out of happiness and pure joy. Words I’d been dying to say, but never could. A sentence that he may never hear now that he didn’t want to be my forever anymore.

Cover Reveal: THE REDIRECTION OF DAMIEN SINCLAIR by @Nancee_Cain #romance #series

Congratulations to my pub sister, Nancee Cain, on this very interesting cover for her new release! I’ve loved books one (The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie), two (The Redemption of Emma Devine), and three (The Rehabilitation of Angel Sinclair) in this series. I’m eager to dive into book four!

¸.•´¸.•*´¨)✯ ¸.•*¨)

Damien Sinclair has witnessed more than his share of love’s ugly aftermath—first as a child of quarreling parents and these days as an acclaimed divorce attorney. His solution? Control. From his immaculate, organized penthouse to his monochromatic wardrobe to his refusal to let anyone get too close, Damien is master of all he sees… Or so he thinks. Then an attempt on his life leaves him struggling with PTSD.

Free-spirited Harley Taylor, Damien’s childhood friend and a one-time fling, arrives on his doorstep, having appointed herself his caregiver. She’s his polar opposite and hell bent on redirecting his life. And if somehow that life might expand to include her for the long term, even better. Either way, the man needs to learn not to take himself so seriously. If that involves a prank or two, so be it.

Interacting for the first time in a decade, Harley and Damien find their attraction still smoldering. But to what end? Is Harley the shot of color Damien needs to disperse the black cloud that plagues him? Or are they destined to destroy each other all over again?

THE REHABILITATION OF ANGEL SINCLAIR by @Nancee_Cain #newrelease #romance #5starreview

Title: The Rehabilitation of Angel Sinclair
Series: A Pine Bluff Novel
Author: Nancee Cain
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 27, 2018

Angel Sinclair arrives in Pine Bluff, Alabama with one goal: make amends and move on. But his chance meeting with the beautiful owner of Sleep Inn on the Lake lands him a job, a place to stay, and something else he hasn’t had for years in his life: love and trust.
Still reeling from a bitter divorce, Maggie Robertson is determined to start over as proprietress of a new bed and breakfast. Getting involved with anyone in this gossipy small town is not on her to-do list–especially someone closer to her son’s age than her own.
When she opens the door to find the dreadlocked and tattooed Angel on her porch, her quiet life and preconceived notions are turned upside down. Maggie’s self-confidence soars under his undivided attention. Angel is drawn by Maggie’s quiet acceptance…and he can’t stop staring at her ass.
But Angel’s fondness for Maggie’s company is topped only by his penchant for keeping secrets, which leads Maggie to wonder if she has it wrong. Perhaps age differences do matter, opposites should not be allowed to attract, and love does not conquer all–even if it’s written on the wall.

Here’s my 5-star review!

The Rehabilitation of Angel Sinclair (A Pine Bluff Novel, #3)The Rehabilitation of Angel Sinclair by Nancee Cain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Homeless Addict Woos Insecure Divorcee: Who’s Rehabilitating Who?

Recovering heroin addict, Angel, walks into Pine Bluff, Alabama to meet up with an old friend. But what he finds on his journey is a new romantic partner, Maggie. In this lovely addition to the Pine Bluff series, Angel and Maggie rehabilitate each other.

Nancee Cain’s experience in the addiction field shines through in this story. Angel’s family problems and resulting low self-worth are heartbreaking. His mother’s eating disorder and his father’s cold criticism contributed to his risk for addiction. When Angel first meets Maggie and she questions if he has stolen from her, his hangdog resignation made me cry. But Maggie looks beneath his hopeless, scruffy facade to see his inner strength and talent.

I have trouble understanding the attraction young women have for much older men, but I find the age difference between Angel and Maggie to be refreshing. Fourteen years older than Angel, Maggie dances to Rick James’ “Super Freak” and bakes delicious goodies as she tries to get her bed and breakfast off the ground. Angel helps her mission by becoming her handyman, and boy is he ever handy. Although Angel is wise beyond his years, he enjoys professing himself as her boy toy.

At first, Maggie believes that Angel’s friend, Emma, is his girlfriend, turning her green with envy:

Maybe she’d break one of her long, Barbie legs. Maggie didn’t wish her anything too serious or harmful, just a fracture that would leave her totally immobilized. She’d even make her a cake and wish her a speedy recovery. Then, with luck, this Emma would gain thirty pounds.

Angel is a masterful artist and his guestbook full of sketches of scenes from around the inn is quite the thoughtful gift he gives to Maggie. I’m such a rule follower that Angel’s secret habit of spray-painting graffiti made me uncomfortable, but his “writing” has realistic consequences.

Like most women, Maggie has negative body image, which frustrates Angel.

“Maggie, when will you believe me when I say you’re beautiful?”

“I’m not twenty-five,” she replied. “I need to lose ten pounds–“


He placed a hand over her mouth. “Don’t talk about the woman I’m crazy about like that. It pisses me off, because she’s perfect as is.”

It’s like Angel is the first man to really see Maggie, as a smart, competent, sexy woman. Maybe Maggie can grow to see herself that way as well?

“Maggie? Who takes care of you?”

“Me?” She pulled away. “I don’t understand what you mean.”

“I bet you took care of your dad. I know you catered to Brian and Phillip. Who has ever taken care of you?”

“I’m f-fine. I can take care of myself.”

“I know you can. But what if I want to take care of you? Would you trust me enough to let me?”

Wow, every woman needs an Angel in her life. Maggie is drawn to caring for Angel’s wounded soul, and Angel is drawn to building Maggie’s faltering confidence, but both realize that they have to be whole in their own right to make this romance work.

We get to meet the hero of the next book in the series: Angel’s estranged older brother, Damien. Damien is a ruthless attorney who likes to play violin on the roof (in particular, one of my favorite songs–“Meditation” from Thais). Damien tries to dissuade Maggie from loving his addict brother, but Maggie tells him off. I look forward to learning more about this complex character and his future love interest!

Each unique story in this series gets stronger and deeper. Highly recommended!

New Release: BLIND LOVE by @Kishan_Paul #Romance #Review #Giveaway

BlindLove BlindLove300 
  Title: Blind Love 
  Author: Kishan Paul 
  Release Date: June 2, 2015 
  Genre: Contemporary Romance 
  Publisher: Samhain Publishing

  She doesn’t need a hero. But a sexy Marine…that’ll work. 

At twenty nine, psychologist Lauren Baxter has a successful counseling practice. Since becoming legally blind at fifteen, her world has been a blurry mess of colors. Her greatest fear is also her ultimate reality. One day that fuzzy realm will forever turn black. Refusing to let blindness define her, she builds a life for herself with her dog, Jack Sparrow, and best friend, Sunny Daye. 

 Lauren has no tolerance for pity or for Superman swooshing down and rescuing her. She is capable of saving herself just fine. That is until Gabe, the great smelling, former Marine, from Texas moves in next door. Her attraction to him is immediate and, unfortunately for her, mutual. When Lauren’s ex-husband shows up begging for another chance, she is confused and fragile. She also finds herself in the arms of her secretive neighbor. Little does she realize that her decision for a steamy roll in the hay with Gabe will suck her into his mysterious past, thrust her ex-husband back into her life, put her in the middle of a murder investigation, and place her life in danger. 

 Gabriel Briggs has the weight of the world on his shoulders. Short term flings are all he can afford for more reasons than one – reasons he never plans to share. Until he moves in next door to the beautiful, green eyed, feisty, Lauren. One night with her and he’s reconsidering promises he made almost a decade ago. When a woman from his past is murdered, his world is turned upside down. Secrets are revealed and innocent lives are threatened. Can Gabe win Lauren’s love and save her life before it’s too late?

  Product Warnings: Contains a blind therapist who doesn’t consider herself impaired; a meddling, erotic-novel-writing best friend; a hot ex-Marine with a shady past; and a loyal guide dog that howls “I love you” and is probably the sanest one of the bunch.

Blind Love

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love Opens Their Eyes

This is a refreshing, well-written romance!

Lauren is a blind psychologist whose divorce makes her wary of all men. Too bad sexy Texan Gabe moves in next door.

Gabe is an ex-marine whose family struggles make him unavailable for romantic entanglements. Too bad he can’t stop thinking about Lauren.

I really admire Lauren. She has some self-deprecating moments…

She unzipped her oversized flannel onesie, created especially for women not interested in finding a man, and tossed it on the bed.

But is also full of strength:

“There’s no question how strong you are.” Gabe rested his fingers on her shoulders and pressed into the tight muscles. She didn’t push him away. “But being strong doesn’t mean you have to be alone.”

The cast of characters surrounding Lauren is well-drawn. Not only is there Gabe, but Lauren also has a loyal, smutty friend Sunny who writes erotica novels and works as an assistant for her counseling practice. She has an ex-husband Ben, a cop who cheated on her but now wants her back. Finally, Jack the German Shepherd is her faithful sidekick and service dog. Jack comes to life on the page.

Her ex-husband Ben can be annoying and overprotective, but he’s come a long way from the man who hurt her. Here’s a sweet memory Lauren has:

Ben’s voice cracked. It reminded her of a younger Ben. The one from high school who kept missing her mouth whenever he tried to kiss her.

When Ben suspects Gabe of wrongdoing, Lauren puts him in his place. “Just because a man has an affair doesn’t make him capable of murder. If it does, you’re as much a suspect.”

Dang, girl! I also laughed when Sunny calls Lauren a “stupid, blind, arrogant freak.” Ah, best friends.

All the levity comes to a halt when Lauren’s life is in danger. I did not see the suspense element coming, and it was my favorite part of the story. The danger makes Lauren and Gabe see things in a new light, and luckily Gabe’s mother talks some sense into him when he really needs it.

I highly recommend this story!


About Lauren from Blind Love

Lauren is a psychologist who provides distance therapy (aka phone therapy) from her home. She’s a very independent woman, but she’s going blind. The funny thing about Lauren is that although she’s a psychologist who works in helping people, she doesn’t help herself. She’s so busy fighting the whole idea of having to be dependent on others that she keeps pushing everyone away. Well… before Gabe shows up.

Do you write from experience? Are your stories based on real people?

Blind Love was actually based on a prompt I did with a social media group I was in. We each had an hour and had to write a short story based on a blind neighbor. I had so much fun in that hour with Lauren and by the end of it, I knew I had to tell her story.

I’m a therapist in real life, but my stories are never about my clients or real people. Now there are real life issues in the story like anxiety, grief, and trauma.

I have this infatuation with emotions. The sadder the story, the more my heart aches, and the more I love it. My friends and even my husband will tell you the characters are based on them. I just nod and say sure. Why burst their bubble?
