Book Blitz for The Rumble and the Glory by JA Huss


The Rumble and the Glory 
by JA Huss

Publication date: June 27th 2024
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Suspense


Deep in the hills of West Virginia, three small towns have found a way to flourish in the face of extreme poverty. Disciple runs a side-show tent revival that brings in millions of dollars a year. Bishop flaunts traditional ways in the vein of Colonial Williamsburg, luring weary city people to the slow-living lifestyle. And Revenant offers them an experience of sin filled with tattooed bikers and live-music dive bars.

It’s a sacred trinity that worships the almighty dollar and everyone plays their role like a well-trained Broadway actor. 

But these hills have secrets, and so do the people.  

Twelve years ago, when he was just eighteen and dreaming of a future with his high school sweetheart, Collin Creed learned something about himself. Something so disturbing he left Disciple to join the Marines and didn’t once look back. But all that came to a screeching halt with the congressional hearings, forcing Collin to return home and rebuild his black-ops empire brick by brick.

Lowyn McBride’s heart broke when Collin shut her out and left town without an explanation just as they were getting ready to start their adult lives together. The death of her mother the following year was a make-or-break moment and Lowyn rose to the occasion, giving up her university education to parent her younger sister while building an empire of her own as a specialty antiques dealer. 

Anger and desire, guilt and shame—the return of the enigmatic Collin Creed ignites the town and sparks an explosion of emotions inside Lowyn. But he’s not the only one with a secret in his past. Lowyn has always played the good girl to Collin’s bad-boy reputation. But it turns out—she’s just like everyone else up in these hills—not as wholesome and pure as she looks.


The Rumble and the Glory is a cinematic and spicy small-town secret, second-chance romance wrapped up in a cloak of mystery and suspense. It honors the themes of found family, redemptive anti-hero, and is filled with bigger-than-life, morally-grey characters against a backdrop of deceit and deception.

Children's Book Review for If You Could Ask Your Dog One Question by Kim Messina, Nataliia Pavliuk (Illustrator)

 If You Could Ask Your Dog One  Question by                          Kim MessinaNataliia Pavliuk (Illustrator)

Taken from Goodreads:
  This poetic story about a young girl's struggle to pick the perfect question will warm the hearts of children and their adult readers alike. From "Why do you steal my fuzzy socks?" to "Do I make you happy?", her inquiries highlight quirky dog behaviors while exposing the profound love that she feels for her pet. With a delightful rhythm, and charmingly sweet scenes hand-painted by Nataliia Pavliuk, this work will resonate with all who have opened their hearts to a furry friend.

 My Thoughts:   If You Could Ask Your Dog One Question is a cute book with wonderful illustrations.  As an adult, I enjoyed the thoughtful wording and adorable pictures that went with each question.  With each page, I took a second to think about the question this young girl was contemplating asking her dog and realized that her questions were thoughtful and interesting. Anyone who has a pet has asked their pet these questions.

This is a children’s book and I am excited to add it to a first-year teacher’s library for her to share with her students as they embark on their learning adventure.  

Thank you Author Marketing Experts for a copy of the book via the author in exchange for my honest review.

The first rule of undercover work—don’t get attached…

Pilot Elise Hughes left the family business in the Florida Keys and now flies the rich and powerful to and from the Rocky Mountains. When she has to execute a by-the-book emergency landing, it’s no big deal. But being stranded in a small town with her handsome new colleague is something else entirely.

Obsessed with getting justice for his murdered father, undercover FBI agent Eric Erickson believes retribution is finally within reach. Until things get complicated. And dangerous. And he’s forced to face a few too many realities—including Elise’s connection to a well-known crime boss.

After Elise is kidnapped by the same man who took Eric’s father, he has a choice to make—find Elise or exact revenge. Meanwhile she has a choice of her own—trust the dangerous family she never knew she had or the man who’s been lying to her from the start.

Evie Jacobs loves words. As a child, she read constantly. And when she wasn't reading, she was writing. Not much has changed. By day she works in a library surrounded by books, and by night she writes steamy action/adventure romance. She lives in Colorado with her husband, two cats, and six bicycles.

Release Blitz for The Sweet Spot by Bella Matthews


The Sweet Spot by Bella Matthews is now live! 

From USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Author Bella Matthews, comes a hot new hockey coach, single dad, marriage of convenience, small town romance.

A fake marriage with a single dad wasn't on my dance card but there are worse ways to start the summer.

Our story didn’t begin the night I agreed to marry Deacon Kane to help him keep his daughter. It started ten years ago, with a hotshot hockey player I couldn’t wait to see each summer. He was big, broad, and filled out his board shorts so damn nicely. But holy hell… The memories of teenage Deacon don’t hold a candle to the man he is now, the one who makes me melt each time he says, "my wife."

What was supposed to be a marriage of convenience quickly spirals into something else. Something I can’t control. Because this man makes me feel alive in a way I haven’t felt in months, and I want more.

More sparks.
More life.
More time.

Can a relationship based on lies last… Especially when I’m the one keeping all the secrets?

Release Blitz for Bright Lights & Summer Nights by Kat Singleton


Bright Lights & Summer Nights by Kat Singleton is now live! 

Summer nights can be full of surprises.

As a single, unemployed, and unapologetic twenty-five year old mess, I came to the Hamptons this summer for one reason—to focus on myself and work out my quarter-life crisis. I didn’t come here planning to sneak into a private party and meet a handsome stranger.

I definitely didn’t come here expecting for that stranger to be Preston Rhodes—billionaire and superstar quarterback for the Manhattan Mambas.

And that’s not even the crazy part.

He asked me to be his pretend girlfriend for a week while his family is in town. He needed a date for his sister’s wedding, and I’d never turn down the opportunity to be spoiled by a rich man.

The only thing is, Preston’s not very good at pretending.

Now instead of discovering myself, I’m spending the week discovering what life would be like with him. Instead of focusing on me, I’m focusing on how he looks at me, how he touches me, how he wants me.

But now that neither one of us is faking it, I only hope that we can hold on to what we have through the bright lights and summer nights.
