A delicious wedding. A sour and supernatural curse. Will this baker's next bite be her last? With her wedding to Hank fast approaching, Imogen Banks has come a long way from the magical contest that brought her to Bijou Mer. But when conspirators seek to sabotage the witch's big day, she fears her latest recipe for happiness will end in disaster. And after the prince falls horribly ill, Imogen and her friends must solve one more dark mystery before her love and kingdom perish.
Speeding through a menu of suspects as long as the guest list, Imogen clashes with a vengeful monarch and a calculating assassin. But as the minutes tick down to seconds, saving her home and her fiancé may require walking away from everything she loves.
Can Imogen create one final concoction to stop a war and marry her soul mate?
Bat Wings, Rings and Apron Strings is the magical conclusion to the Spells and Caramels cozy witch mystery series. If you like witty characters, mystical intrigue and a dash of romance, then you’ll love Erin Johnson’s tasty whodunit.
                                                                  My Review

It was a delightful and engaging read, a perfect mix of magic and mystery with a touch of romance.
Imogen has discovered a little over a year of being a witch and since then her life has completely changed. She has known some fantastic people and some really evil ones, she  has visited enchanted and wonderful worlds and has known her great love. Preparations are underway for her marriage with Hank, they receive many gifts, some of them really exhilarating. But after the stag dinner Hank feels bad and Imogen will have to face a very long journey and overcome many obstacles to save him.
The characters are really adorable and amazing. Hank is a polite prince, very noble. Imogen is the perfect heroine, brave, intelligent, acute and very very ironic, her lines are
wonderful. Iggy is my favorite character, unique and funny.
This was a great read that left me turning the pages, eager to know what was going to happen next, I read it in one day. There is humor, twists, adventure, magic, romance, a complete story written in an excellent way, the author has created unique worlds that would really want to visit them.
It is the tenth and last book of the Spells & Caramels series and I suggest to better understand the story of reading it in order.
Highly recommended.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Spoken by Melanie Weiss





SPOKEN

by Melanie Weiss 
Publication Date: March 12, 2019
Genres: Adult, Young Adult, Coming of Age


AVAILABLE NOW! (#Free with #KindleUnlimited)

SYNOPSIS

High school freshman Roman Santi has everything — good looks, great friends, a mansion with an infinity swimming pool — except the one thing he really wants. A relationship with his father.
When Roman’s life gets turned upside down, (thanks, Mom!?), he is forced to leave his pampered Hollywood lifestyle and move into his grandparents’ Midwestern home. Sleeping on a lumpy pullout sofa and starting at a new high school is the worst, but Roman’s life starts to look up when his pink-haired friend, Zuzu, and his crush, a classmate named Claire, introduce him to performance poetry through the high school’s Spoken Word Club. While his mom is flying back and forth to L.A., trying to return them to the life they had, Roman becomes part of a diverse group of characters who challenge his rather privileged view of the world. Through Spoken Word, Roman recognizes the hole in his own life he needs to fill and discovers his voice. Spoken Word leads Roman on a journey of new friendships, first love, and finding the dad he never knew.
“Spoken” is an uplifting, funny, and heartfelt coming-of-age story that captures how the honesty of performance poetry binds together students from all different walks of life and forever changes Roman’s life.

Excerpt

Jealousy is a relatively new emotion for me, filling my heart with a million sharp shards of glass. It scratches me raw so easily, until my heart was torn and bleeding. Feeling it for the first time, find myself inferior in a whole new way, I sob into my pillows helplessly.
Dryas comes into the bedroom a while later on quiet feet. I am glad he didn’t see the fit of tears that chased me out of the kitchen. Still, my eyes are red and puffy, my nose still stuffed up. As he approaches the bed, I can’t help but wonder if he compares me to her.
That thought, dark and vicious, seems to gnaw at my soul. 
When he sits down beside me, I release a long-suffering sigh. Looking up at him, I’m embarrassed to even be having these emotions, yet incapable of feeling differently. He pins me with that chartreuse gaze, those dark brows drawn low.
“I am sorry,” he begins, surprising me. “I should have told you about Aurelia from the start.”
I push myself upright, sniffling. “I mean, I’m not your girlfriend. This isn’t a relationship we are in, technically. You don’t owe me any explanations.”
 He looks a little surprised. “No? What would you call it, then?”
My face heats up, my cheeks growing as red as cherries. I hesitate. “I... I don’t know. We never talked about it. It just sort of… happened. One time turned into two, two times to four…”
I splay my hand on the comforter, picking at a loose thread. Dryas sighs and shifts closer to me.
“Do I mean nothing to you, then?”
He takes my hand, pulling it against his torso. I glance up at him, my heart racing at his words. 
“No. Of course not,” I reply, my words soft.
His lips lift in the gentlest smile. He’s devastatingly handsome in that moment, looking down at me with his brilliant yellow-green eyes.“Good. You mean something to me, too.”
He leans across and drops the perfect kiss against my bee-stung lips, gentle but firm, tender yet passionate. I open my mouth to him, my fingers clutching at the sweatshirt covering his chest. God, how I love this man.

Cover Reveal for Tamed by the Highlander by Madison Faye




Title: Tamed by the Highlander
Series: Kilts & Kisses #1
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Wildly historically inaccurate 
Highlander historical romance
Cover Design: Coverlüv
Photo: Claudio Harris
Model: Stuart Reardon
Release Date: April 8, 2019



Blurb

The first rule when you’re arranged to marry a gorgeous, dominant Highland lord?
Don’t, under any circumstances, no matter how sinfully tempting he is, fall in love.
...Oops.


If I had it my way, I’d never get married. But then, it’s not up to me at all.
Because the gruff, muscled, gorgeous and powerful Highlander Lord Hamish Ballantyne has decided to claim me as his bride.

I’m determined to resist him. He may be beautiful, and dangerously brooding, and carrying around the shadows of the wars he’s fought in. But I will not be some lord’s property, and I refuse to be “his”.

Except one look into those dark, piercing eyes? One forbidden, pulse-quickening, toe-curling touch from his rough, strong hands? I can refuse to belong to him all I want, but the thing is...

…I might already be his.

He speaks to me like no man ever has. He touches me in ways I’ve only dreamed feverishly of. And he promises to take what can only be taken once.

And God help me, I’m ready to give it to him.


All the trope clichés. Lots of plaid. Wildly historically inaccurate. More alpha than you can shake a thistle at. Warning: not responsible for lost or ripped bodices. Reader beware.

As with all my books, this one is safe, with no cheating, and a HEA guaranteed.

Release Blitz for Skirt Steak by Vanessa Vale




Title: Skirt Steak
Series: Grade-A Beefcakes #5
Author: Vanessa Vale
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: April 4, 2019



Blurb

Julia Duke has watched her brothers fall in love, and it’s her turn. But after a rude ex complained she was terrible between the sheets, her confidence is shot. If she can’t please one man, how can she satisfy two? She’s not looking for love, but one Friday night — love finds her.

Bennett and Cash take one look at the fiery redhead and can't resist seducing her into their arms. Nothing will stop them from making her theirs. Not the a-hole ex boyfriend, and not a scandalous past that may change the way she looks at one of them forever.

Now that Julia knows what it's like to be loved by some Grade-A Beefcake, she's willing to do whatever it takes to keep her men, no matter who she has to fight to get her happily-ever-after: the rumor-mill, the law, her crazy ex, or herself.

Remember: With a Vanessa Vale book, one cowboy is never enough. In this smokin' hot series, each heroine gets an extra helping (or two) of Grade-A Beefcake.
