In Fair Brighton (Star-Crossed Mafia #1)
by Elena Kincaid | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Star-Crossed Mafia series? How are the books tied together?

I've always loved Romeo and Juliet and when my two main characters popped into my head, the two of them reminded me of a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, although my couple does not meet the same tragic end. The series will continue with the star-crossed theme, and the characters will all somehow be connected through these rival mob families from Brooklyn. I've already introduced the readers to my next two leading men in book one.

The Laird (wild Heather Book 1)
5 stars By S.A. Martin "The Laird" is a wonderful time travel romance that draws the reader in and makes her feel she is there. Exceptionally researched and well written, the story centers around Andrew and Elizabeth, who travel to Scotland to visit his uncle before the man dies.

Travis (wild Heather Book 2)
5 Stars Kristal Gorman I absolutely love this book. There are so many things that I want to say about it, but I am going to stick to the basics or I will have a ten page review! Beth Anderson has all of the qualities a great heroine should possess. She is beautiful, charming, has a great sense of humor and a sense of adventure that she didn't realize she had. She is drawn up into the attic of her friend's castle to where a cape lays, a cape that supposedly drew her friend back in time to the man of her dreams. Travis... Ooooh, baby! Travis! He is as hot as his name, through and through. Big and brawny, he is bossy and loud and I just love the frig out of him. He knows who is boss, and, future woman or not, Beth is going to know that too! But, he doesn't count on her getting under his skin, and that just plain ticks him off. I love everything about this book. The play of emotions and the battle of wills between this couple keep this book flowing very smoothly. I don't think Ms. McGill could have done it any better, even if she had wanted to, although I don't think perfection can be improved upon—and that is absolutely what this book is. Pure perfection. …enchanting and light, but also filled with all of the good old-fashioned emotions that we all love in our romance novels. Heck, that's the reason we read them! This flashy, spirited woman and her big, hunky Highlander have completely captured my heart! Their chemistry and sizzle fires up the pages and kept me glued to it from start to finish…one for the keeper shelves, as I am sure that romance readers everywhere will agree with me once they read it."
The Dream Of A Duchess
When Isabella pays witness to her mother's murder at the hands of her father, she rides off to London in search of the Earl of Norwick, the man her mother always said she could go to in case of trouble. To keep her safe, Octavius, Duke of Huntington, agrees to hide Isabella in his country estate—and to allow her access to his stables and horses. But what about his heart?
Maddie And The Norseman
5 stars Robyn "I was totally caught up in this story. Time travel is such an unbelievable concept and I often have trouble following it in a story. I thought Tricia McGill wove a colorful tapestry of time travel. One that makes the reader believe it is possible. The characters are so realistic and have such depth to their character. I was drawn to them and wanted to find out if Maddie could ever find Amber and what she would choose to do about Erik. The romance that blooms between Erik and Maddie is pure and sweet. When they finally made love, I wept with joy. I wasn't sure if Maddie would stay with Erik or return home with Amber if they found her. The waiting almost did me in. I can't tell you what happens, but I laughed and cried to the final page. A masterfully woven tale that transcends the boundaries of time.
Redeeming The Rebel Doc
She was hired to rebuild his reputation… But will this doc be too hot to handle? After successfully fighting a year-long lawsuit, handsome, rebellious surgeon Rex Maxwell is ready to get back on top of his game!

And though she tries hard not to let him, Rex is determined to get under her skin…
London's Wicked Affair New Series! Not To Be Missed!
In Anabelle Bryant's wickedly romantic new series, secrets and seduction go hand in hand . . . Lunden Beckford, Duke of Scarsdale, has chosen to exile himself far from London, with its painful memories and cruel gossip. Forced back to town on business, he's eager to make his stay as brief as possible. But first, he must honor his promise to find a suitable husband for his friend's little sister. On one hand, Amelia Strathmore has grown into a stunning, statuesque beauty. On the other, the willful chit is more likely to scandalize a drawing room with her outspoken opinions than blush prettily. At least she agrees to accept his help—if he fulfills certain conditions . . . Though duty-bound to marry, Amelia longs to secretly enjoy some of life's freedoms first. In this, as in many things, Lunden proves an excellent guide. In fact, Amelia's girlhood admiration for her brother's friend is fast becoming something far less innocent. Lunden believes he's known too much darkness to offer any woman happiness. Yet Amelia is starting to see how much pleasure can lie within the right partnership—especially if one is willing to be a little wicked!
Barbara T. Cerny is on the 2017 BookViral Millennium Book Award long listed authors for her book "Tressa".
