Blurb

Meeting Joachim could save his daughter’s life, but it may well cost Isaac his heart.

It’s been one hell of a year for Joachim Löfgren. After a long summer in rehab, he’s been moved to a new town, one far away from the warm Florida sun he so adores, to bolster a struggling Boston defense since the departure of their beloved team captain. He hasn’t even unpacked his skates properly when fate lands another blow, and he’s told that he is dad to a gravely ill child he never knew existed.

It’s an easy decision for the burly defenseman to help and he opens up his new home to his child and her guardian Isaac. He’s instantly enchanted with the preschooler as well as her uncle and decides that his life will only be complete if his daughter is part of it. Filing for custody is the only option he feels he has, but this throws his budding relationship with Isaac into utter chaos. The two men soon find themselves on opposite sides of the courtroom as they both fight for the life they feel is best for Sophia.

Despite grieving for the loss of his sister, Isaac doesn’t hesitate to take on the responsibility for his newborn niece Sophia, creating a brand new family of two built on love and laughter. He has a steady income painting pet portraits during the day, but it’s the subversive and satirical cartoons he draws at night that silence his thoughts in the dark.

They don’t have much as a family, but he is Sophia’s dad now, and nothing and no one will ever come between them. When a routine pediatric checkup shows that Sophia is ill, it forces Isaac to confront every one of his fears. Finding a matching donor is her only hope, and Isaac begins the journey to find Sophia’s mysterious father.

There are no names or dates in his sister’s battered journal, and all Isaac knows is that he’s looking for a hockey player who was nothing more than a one-night stand. Little does he know that finding Joachim could destroy everything.

Excerpt

I scanned the rest of the journal, broken up once by Sophie waking up grumpy and hungry, but by the time midnight rolled around I knew without a doubt that Ashley had met and hooked up with a hockey fan she called Hockey Guy, or HG for short, because it was the only thing that made sense.

Which is why for the opening game of the preseason, I left Sophie with June, who had babysat for me in the past, and was dressed head to toe in neon lemon, then headed to the Fort Lauderdale Arena with three huge signs I’d drawn, determined to get the attention of every single hockey fan as they went into the place.

Sophie needed help so there I stood half-naked with face paint, looking like a canary. I couldn’t get a ticket to the game but if queuing fans read the signs and went to get themselves tested with the hospital to see if they were a match to Sophie, then it was a win. Maybe, somewhere, within the twenty-thousand people at the arena, HG might be there, and I was going to find him.
Because it really was Sophie’s last chance.

And I refused to let someone else die on my watch.

Series Overview

The Boston Rebels were established in the roaring twenties as one of the Original Six teams in the fledgling new professional hockey league. Success came to them somewhat quickly as they won the championship in nineteen thirty-two by beating New York to become the first American team to bring home the cup.

From the first out NHL captain, to the bright young star making his mark, the defenseman fighting addiction and finding out he’s a dad, to the goalie being stalked by a killer, meet a brand new team of hockey players from the authors of bestselling MM Hockey Romance’, RJ Scott & VL Locey.

I love this series so much!

58565535._SY475_Fluke and the Faultline Fiasco by Sam Burns

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The third entry in this fabulous urban fantasy/paranormal romance sees Sage, Gideon, Fluke and the rest of the gang having to find out what’s happening with the convergence and dealing with a threat that could see Junction literally blown off the map.

Sam navigates through the complexities of the narrative with ease, one moment focusing on Sage’s growing confidence in his own arcane magic skills, at others giving quiet moments of family life with Iris.

There’s the same humour that has been present throughout, the steam level is understandably low as this focuses more on the paranormal/mystery and suspense elements of the storytelling than the romance.

Having said that, Sage and Gideon are as solid as ever, they have a few steamy moments which confirms that they’re still utterly committed to their relationship and each other and there is one particular scene which sees a very vulnerable Gideon that had me having all the feels!

Speaking of vulnerabilities, Freddy in this book almost broke my heart! He’s such a study in contrasts and here he really does prove himself in all ways up as a top bloke who is yearning to not only be useful but also to belong. I’m intrigued by where his story arc may go next!

I said in my review of book one The Fantastic Fluke that the series gives me a Scooby Doo mystery vibe and that remains strong in this particular instalment.

The bad guys were a surprise, not who I had been expecting at all, the suspense element works well, it’s an intriguing twist on what the other two books have used but still in the same we must destroy X Magic because ballpark.

More secrets about Great Uncle Jonathan are revealed and oh boy was he an absolute arse and, speaking of family, we get to find out a bit more about Gideon’s past and his connection with the local Dominus Anson.

Cannot wait for more!

Copy of Charles

Blurb

Opposites attract in this low-angst romance filled with British snark and humour.

Life should be a breeze for a playboy like Charles Heppel. As the third son of an earl, he lives for the moment, partying and playing. Settling down isn’t for him. Not when London is full of beautiful men who he hasn’t one-and-done yet.

To escape his family’s nagging, Charles applies for a temp job that matches his playful skill set. A role in a Cornish classroom could be his until the summer, if Charles meets two conditions: he must move in with the headmaster’s best friend, and teach him to be happy.

Living with Hugo should be awkward. Charles is a free spirit, but Hugo’s a man of faith, with morals. A man who almost took holy orders before disaster changed his direction. Only far from being a chore, Charles finds that making Hugo happy soon becomes his passion.

Together, they share physical and emotional first times. Ones that change Charles, touching his soul. He wants Hugo for longer than they have left, but learning to love with his heart, not just his body, will take a leap of faith from Charles — in himself as well as Hugo.

New from Con Riley, Charles: Learning to Love is the first novel in a series based at Glynn Harber, a very special boarding school set in England’s glorious Cornwall.

This shared-world series starts with Charles and Hugo, but each book follows a different couple in their own standalone novel, with a fulfilling happily ever after.

About The Author

Copy of con riley avi copy

CON RILEY lives on the wild and wonderful Welsh coast, with her head in the clouds and her feet in the ocean.

Injury curtailed her enjoyment of outdoor pursuits, so writing fiction now fills her free time. Love, loss, and redemption shape her romance stories, and her characters are flawed in ways that make them live and breathe.

When not people-watching or reading, she spends time staring at the sea from her kitchen window. If you see her, don’t disturb her — she’s probably thinking up new plots.
