The song that inspired me while writing GIRL OF MINE:
(Watch until the end. There’s a surprise!)

A interesting tidbit about GIRL OF MINE:
My dad always worried about the cost of the electricity bill. If he walked past my bedroom and noticed that my light had been left on, he would turn it off and holler,
“That’s okay, Taylor, I got your light.”
It became a bit of a joke in our household. My siblings and I loved to try and catch my dad leaving on a light, just so we could say,
“That’s okay, Dad, I got your light.”
Now that I’m an adult with my own family, the term takes on new meaning.
The message behind it has worked its way into my new novel, Girl of Mine.
My father brought me into this world, he cared for me, and he taught me well. He gave me my “light,” my life.
He nourished my “light” and helped me become the person I am today.
So, Dad, thanks for getting my light.
I’ll always be grateful.

Book Review: Finally his Bride by Maisey Yates (Montana Born Bride #4)

Title: Finally His Bride (Montana Born Brides #4)

Author: Maisey Yates

Publisher: Tule Publishing

Series: Montana Born Brides

Genre: Romance

Release date: May 24, 2015

Website: Maisey Yates

Synopsis:

Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…

 

As the whole town goes crazy over the celebrity wedding event of the century, Melanie Richards decides she’s tired of blending in. It’s time go after what she wants. Her to do list:

Get a sexy dress

A little liquid courage

Lose that pesky virginity

 

Luke Shuller can’t believe his eyes when he walks into Grey’s and sees his best friend trying to pick up some drunk cowboy. Melanie wants to start hooking up? She can practice on him. At least he’ll keep her safe. And as a bonus, their pretend relationship will help him deal with a family crisis.

 

But when pretend gets real, Melanie can’t tell where the charade ends and reality begins. When the dust settles, will she get thrown back into the friend zone, or will she finally get the man of her dreams?

my review

This is the fourth in the series.  I would recommend reading the book Bride by Mistake first as this seems to go along with it.

This story is about Luke, Kaitlin’s brother. Happens to be staying in town dealing with his sister, not that Kaitlin wants help. But this story is more about Luke and Melanie, they have been best friends for a long time. When Luke sees Melanie at the bar trying to hook up with just any cowboy, he takes it in his own hands, I mean takes her by his own hands and puts her over his shoulder and carries her out. Of course not to her liking.

Even though this is a short story, I think it told a lot. Maisy Yates did a great job of writing this short story and making it seem like more. I really enjoyed the story line and am ready to eat some Salted Carmel Icing with my cake.

I am giving this a 5 stars.

Title: Bride by Mistake (Montana Born Brides #3)

Author: Nicole Helm

Publisher: Tule Publishing

Series: Montana Born Brides

Genre: Romance

Release date: 5/18/2015

Website:Nicole Helm

Synopsis: Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…

 

And Kaitlin Shuller’s groom of her dreams is marrying someone else… her sister.

 

Worst day ever. Her heart is broken, and all her carefully laid plans destroyed. Enter Beckett Larson, her older brother’s best friend and a very good bad decision.

 

Beckett has spent his life trying to outrun his bad reputation, but everyone already thinks the worst of him, so when Kaitlin offers herself to him — virginity and all— he just can’t say no.

 

But one night together has permanent consequences, and this time Beckett knows he can’t outrun his bad boy reputation. He’s determined to make Kaitlin his bride… even if he has to seduce her down the aisle.

 

my review

 

 

Can you imagine what it would be like for the groom of your dreams to be marrying your younger sister?

It happened to Kaitlin Shuller and it was the worst day ever.

Wow I think it would be horrible and of course I wouldn’t be thinking right, well neither was Kaitlin, she decided she needed a one night stand and her brother’s best friend would do. What a story, I felt the story started out kind of slow, but then it exploded!!  Kaitlin was a virgin and there are consequences that happen even when you try to prevent them. Loved this story, felt so real. Great writing and a fun read.

Book Blurb

In an instant, Cassie must put aside all her day-to-day worries: her looks, a job she likes (well deals with), what to wear. At twenty-nine, she receives sudden, life-changing news. She realizes that her everyday life with her fiancé, Jake, was pretty amazing. Who cares about a sarcastic boss or a promotion when losing everything has become a terrifying reality?

Cassie’s shocking news infiltrates the lives of everyone she loves, particularly Jake and her estranged sister, Sandy. Jake wants to be strong for Cassie, but this unexpected turn brings back painful memories—and a terrible secret he’s shared with no one. Sandy, who ran away to pursue stardom, is called home to face those she left behind. The golden child of the family, Sandy fell from her pedestal long ago. Will she be able to face her own failures?

As Cassie struggles against an uncertain future, Jake and Sandy battle with the demons of the past. All three will learn valuable lessons about love, forgiveness and appreciating the days we’re given.

excerpt

Sandy took a big sip of her drink and wove with him through a sea of people to an intimate corner booth. She was young again, with her future all in front of her. Another sip. At least for this night.

“This place is packed!” she exclaimed as she slid next to him.

“Always is.” He inched closer to her. “So, what kind of work do you do?” He looked directly at her. She loved his attention.

“I work in fashion.” The lie slipped easily off her tongue.

“Fashion, very cool. I work in finance on Wall Street,” he said firmly, obviously very impressed with himself.

Sandy took the bait. She was impressed with him, too. Nervously toying with a strand of hair, she searched her brain for something intelligent to say about his career, but she could think of nothing except the movie with Michael Douglas. She took the safe route and simply nodded.

“Do you live near here?” he asked, unconcerned by her lack of response.

“Not far. And you?” Sandy drained her glass, enjoying the warmth of the alcohol as it ran down her throat. She could feel the familiar high of a good buzz. She relaxed into it and escaped the stress of today—and her life.

“Near, too. Near is a nice place to be,” he said, grazing the top of her leg with his hand.

Sandy shivered at his touch.

“You’re beautiful, you know,” he continued. Sandy averted her eyes. She hadn’t flirted in years and his attention was flattering, but also off-putting. She was out of practice.

He traced the side of her face gently with his fingertips. It was jarring to feel another man’s touch. “You are,” he whispered. He was mere inches in front of her. The spicy scent of his cologne mixed with the smell of gin and tonic in an intoxicating way. She felt the warmth of his breath on her neck. Lust filled the small space between them.

Sandy placed her hand on his chest, feeling the sinew of his muscles. The noise of the room muted and she was aware of only the presence of him. Every sense of hers was heightened. She felt his other hand run slowly down her back, his fingertips softly touching her skin. Sandy’s heart raced and her breath quickened. Her mind had long abandoned logic and was working solely only on emotion. She moved closer to him with longing, her body aching for more. He finally leaned in to her, gently kissing her on the lips, ending the slow, delicious torture of desire.

“Iron Butterfly by Lisa Wainland is a story that feels so realistic you can imagine these characters could be anyone you know. Wainland’s perceptive descriptions lend a richness to the lives of each character…She breathes life into them in such a way that I felt like I was watching a movie instead of reading a book.” —Brenda Casto, Readers’ Favorite
