When a former mobster’s past catches up with him, will it end the quiet life he’s been struggling with, or transform it into something he couldn’t have imagined?
Sometimes Gerome Meadows longs for the excitement of the life he left behind for Witness Protection. But when he stands up to a bully in a bar to protect a homeless man, his past comes very close to home—and it’s no longer what he wants.
Tucker Wells has been living in a tent, surviving with the aid of his friend Cheryl and helping her watch over her son. When he winds up on the wrong side of an argument with some dangerous people, his already difficult life is thrown into turmoil. Gerome steps in to find them a temporary apartment, and Tucker is grateful and relieved.
Gerome never meant to open the door to trouble. His life and Tucker’s depend on keeping his past a mystery. But as his desire to protect develops into something deeper, he and Tucker will have to evaluate what family means—and hope that their growing feelings pass unimaginable tests.

I just finished reading a new cozy mystery that won’t actually be out until August, so you’ll just have to wait. “Much Ado about Nauticaling” by Gabby Allan is a cute 5 Sparkler cozy that takes place on Catalina Island in California. It’s got great imagery and the characters are realistic and fun. Check out my full review on the Mystery page.
Stacy Macken has one goal in mind: saving her renowned history center from greedy creditors. Losing it would be a catastrophe—one she doesn’t know how she’ll avoid. Until Aaron Fielding arrives. To all human eyes, he is just like any man, but he reminds Stacy of one of the fae. He certainly enchants her like a fae lover would. But Stacy suspects there is more to this sexy fellow, with his tales of the Tuatha dé Danann, and magical warriors from Celtic legend who protect humanity from a wicked enemy seeking their destruction. Does his appearance mean the end of the world imminent? Can she, a studious woman more intent on history books with no training in or love of war, possibly have anything to offer when a long-prophesied druidic battle explodes around her?

Thank you to Sparkling Book Reviews for having me back to announce the latest release in my Adrenaline Shots Series! (Note: These are stand-alone quick reads with people falling in love in the middle of an adventure. Only 99 cents each or available in Kindle Unlimited!)
Operation Gratitude: Greta and Finn have always made a great team as part of JOE Ten, a private company running military-adjacent operations. They’ve each buried growing feelings for a long time, but the suppression becomes unbearable when a mission goes sideways.
Facing impossible choices, they are eventually forced to confront them, as well as each other and their own weaknesses. Making the wrong decisions will put their lives, careers, and relationship at risk.
The idea from this story is the end of the first scene, so I don’t want to spoil it. But I had this guy in my head, doing this really stupid, dangerous thing, and that action being the trigger that made his teammate realize she loved him, and vice versa, causing a cascade of complications.
This book was the catalyst for the Adrenaline Shots series. A bunch of friends (including the owner of this blog!) and I had done some short stories in a couple of fun anthologies, but that pursuit ended before the third collection was released, and I had already written Operation: Gratitude. I had SO much fun writing those stories and wanted them to find their audience. And I have so many more to come!
Next up is Endless Secrets and this post is my EXCLUSIVE cover reveal! When Bree finds herself in the middle of a time loop on Valentine’s Day, she decides to use it to her romantic advantage. But she soon discovers it’s not actually fun and harmless, becoming entangled in a race against time (ha!) to…well, save the world, of course! 🙂
Endless Secrets will be released very soon! If you want to be sure you don’t miss this or any other Adrenaline Shots, here are some options:
Mark has worked on Clay and Dell’s farm for a year, and he’s now in charge of the care and feeding of their growing herd of goats. He’s worked hard to provide for himself and build a life of his own. But with the operation continuing to expand, additional help is needed.
Isaac lives in a self-sustaining, simple-life community a few miles up the road. He’s spent his life working and wondering what the outside world might be like. When his father requires him to earn outside money, he asks for a job at Clay and Dell’s farm.
What neither Mark nor Isaac expects is a friendship that quickly grows into something more. But their feelings for each other go against everything that Isaac has been taught, and acting on those feelings will mean leaving the only way of life he’s ever known.
Together, Isaac and Mark are going to need a great deal of strength to weather the storm that’s sure to head their way.
I just finished SPRING UPON A CRIME by ML Erdahl – a 5 Sparkler Cozy mystery. Below are my thoughts. You can read the full review under “Mysteries”
Thoughts: I loved this story! This was the second in the Seattle Wilderness series. I enjoyed the first one enough to pick this one up as well – and wasn’t disappointed. This is a solid follow up to “Winter Takes All”. We are once again pulled into the life of Crystal, a wilderness guide who seems to stumble into murders. In the way of all cozy mysteries, she is our amateur sleuth who finds out who the killer is (and almost gets herself killed in the process). In this one, she has to save her friend Roxie the chef from being prosecuted for the murder of Roxie’s boss. She’s up against the local cops, developers, loggers, and tree-huggers. I especially loved the character of Emerson. He is perfect. The characters are fun and realistic and the imagery is amazing. The author shows us the northwest without being overly descriptive. And the light romance between Crystal and Conner is well done as well, although Conner isn’t in much of this book due to a sprained knee.
