Each featured author helped with the 2018 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to three Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle, Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM, and VA Portland Health Care System in Vancouver.

Tule Publishing‘s DEAR CUPID by Laurie LeClair is in this week's spotlight. Here's what a reviewer had to say about another one of Scarlet's books:

“The perfect romance for Valentine's Day with a little “Cupid” magic thrown in for good measure.” Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for DEAR CUPID:

Opposites attract but don’t get along. Can a dusty box of old love letters change everything?

Sensible librarian Gemma Valentine helps close her family’s antique store and enjoy Cupid’s Corners’ Valentine’s Day festival celebrating romance and weddings—even if she doesn’t believe in love. But when she’s tricked into briefly reviving the town paper’s Dear Cupid advice column, with her best friend’s too handsome brother as part of the deal, she’s miffed. Why does he have to disturb her nice, tidy life?

Architect and hometown football hero Sean McCleary’s promotion hinges on renovating Gemma’s building into a sleek, trendy retail space fast. He’s willing to do anything to finish this project even provide a man’s perspective for the lovelorn column. Why not? Gemma might be annoying, but she’s funny and adorable and he enjoys their spirited banter. Soon Sean sees Gemma in a new light and wonders if he can convince her to give him a chance.

Can two Cupid columnists take their own advice on falling in love?

Jenny and the Beach Brides Series on Sale for $0.99!

My book Jenny and all of the others in the Beach Brides series are currently on sale for only $0.99 until January 27th. The series consists of twelve heartwarming, standalone novellas that are linked by a unifying theme.

Twelve friends from the online group, Romantic Hearts Book Club, decide to finally meet in person during a destination Caribbean vacation to beautiful Enchanted Island. While of different ages and stages in life, these ladies have two things in common:

  1. They are diehard romantics.
  2. They’ve been let down by love.

As a wildly silly dare during their last night on the island, each heroine decides to stuff a note in a bottle addressed to her “dream hero” and cast it out to sea!each of the friends tosses a message in a bottle into the ocean while their on a Caribbean vacation. It's a fun premise that each of us did in our own way.

About Jenny…

Can a message in a bottle lead to a happily ever after?

Bestselling thriller author Jenny Hanford never expects anything to happen the night she whimsically throws her requirements for true love into the ocean. Thirteen months later, however, she hears back from the man who found her bottle.

Exchanging carefree emails and texts with Dare makes Jenny smile and fills her days with anticipation. She doesn’t know much about him, but his humor and kindness keep her replying. Flirting long-distance is fun and safe, but she can’t deny her growing affection for her online friend.

When she discovers Dare is a soldier who has been injured in the line of duty, she’s given the opportunity to visit him. Jenny wants to go, but she’s afraid he’ll turn out to be as make believe as the characters she creates. What are the odds Dare could be her real dream hero?

Available at Amazon for $0.99 or read for free with Kindle Unlimited, click here.

Each featured author helped with the 2018 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to three Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle, Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM, and VA Portland Health Care System in Vancouver.

This week Roxanne Snopek‘s latest release BLACKBERRY COVE ∫is in the spotlightThe book is one of her A Sunset Bay Novels. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Roxanne's book:

“Some stories are just destined to rip your heart out and then heal it back up whole again from the very start. Blackberry Cove is such a story.” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for BLACKBERRY COVE:

Amid the wildly beautiful beaches of Sunset Bay, Oregon, lies Sanctuary Ranch, a refuge for strays, both human and animal. A place where love and healing go hand-in-hand . . .

When journalist Jonathan Byers leaves L.A. with his career in tatters, he heads to Sanctuary Ranch, determined to settle some of his personal affairs by putting his aging father in a seniors’ home. But his father stubbornly refuses to leave his secluded retreat—and has even rallied Sanctuary Ranch’s beautiful gardener to his cause. Something about sexy, mysterious Abby Warren piques the rugged reporter’s investigative instincts—and his interest—luring Jonathan to stay a little longer . . .

Having found her own healing at Sanctuary Ranch, Abby knows Jonathan’s hard-headedness hides a wound that needs mending. Believing a time-out in nature will help father and son see eye-to-eye, she welcomes Jonathan into the only haven she has ever known. But Abby never expects to find herself so drawn to him—or that he will uncover devastating secrets she’d hoped to keep long buried. Will their deepening connection be enough to steer them through the darkness ahead, and toward a bright future for everyone?
