The Real Thing (Sugar Lake, Book 1)
Montlake Romance

This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?

Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?

Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.

Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.

This book is being published by Montlake (an Amazon imprint) and won’t be available on other ebook retailers, but you can download a FREE ereader app to read it HERE (or order the paperback)

Our Beck Valley Books Review - 'Just Three Dates is a simple, gentle, realistic story. David Burnett, Author​'s wonderful writing style has you there in the moment.'....

Both Karen and Mark find themselves at a time of life where they would have loved to be settled down with a family, yet through past heartbreaks they both remain single to the annoyance of their parents or should I say mothers! So what does a mother do when their child can't move forward into a relationship after so long, they feel the need to press the fast forward button and play the blind date host of course!

After being hammered by his mother so many times of the need to find a wife, Mark gives in to her crazy blind date request with her friends daughter Karen, with the promise that they just have to have three dates, and then the whole idea will be forgotten about. Poor Karen is also put into the same predicament and reluctantly agrees. They set out, under duress, to meet for their three dates, but the path of true love never runs smoothly so how will it work out?

David's wonderful writing style has you there in the moment, along with Karen and Mark, it feels like you are reading a true story and the characters are your friends, I even felt frustrated with Mark at times for his stubborn ways just like you would in reality. You get to relive the new relationship emotions, the awkwardness, the stress and anticipation, getting to know each other, searching for clues within each other and perhaps reading the wrong signals. Yet for Karen and Mark they have the added pressure of knowing their mothers expect wedding bells to chime!

I really enjoyed their story and it did leave me thinking about the idea of an agreed marriage against the loneliness of being on your own, the pros and the cons, quite thought provoking. Which is why I love this author so much, a simple, gentle, realistic story that flows in to the readers mind and has you thinking long after you have read the book.

(¯`*•.¸ღ New Romance Release ღ¸.•*´¯) 
Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole
"Besides being a romance, this novel is also based on friendship, family, and overcoming struggles with the help of those we love and trust. The friendship between Leanna, Jenna, Bella, and Amy is amazing and inspiring, reminding you of the importance of friends. And the way the men accept and love all of these women despite their crazy bond and crazy ways, is fantastic.

Hearts at Seaside is written beautifully with the characters perfectly balanced between simple and complex. Although the main story is Jenna and Pete, there are several subplots that just enhance the beauty of this novel. Addison Cole has once again blown me away and I cannot wait to read the next installment in the series!" reviews Dandelions Inspired

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you'll be begging to enter their circle of friends! All books can be read as stand-alone novels.

In HEARTS at SEASIDE… 
Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

Hearts at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Hearts by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

RELEASE DAY!!
Time to enjoy new #romance Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster (Bayside Summers Book 1) plus ebook giveaway - 2 winners!!
 
In Bayside Desires...
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.
 
Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.
 
Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

In SLOPE OF LOVE...
Olympic gold medalist skiers Jayla Stone and Rush Remington have been best friends for years. They’ve seen each other at their best and worst and have kept each other’s secrets without fail. Only there’s one secret Rush has kept close to his chest. After months of introspection, Rush realizes he’s been filling his bed but not tending to his heart. He’s changed his womanizing ways, and the only woman who can fill his heart has been right by his side all this time.

Years of intimate conversations and the sharing of hopes and dreams collide when Rush reveals his secret, and one toe-curling kiss changes everything between Rush and Jayla. They’re no match for the passion that kiss ignites, or the pull of true love. But being Rush’s best friend means knowing all about his revolving bedroom door—and Jayla has a secret of her own that could jeopardize her career and her relationship with Rush. Even their love may not be enough to overcome Rush’s past or secure Jayla’s future.
