Susan Mallery's NEW RELEASE ~ When We Found Home

WHEN WE FOUND HOME   by   SUSAN MALLERY
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author
“Heartwarming…a compelling contemporary fairytale that culminates in a satisfyingly happy ending.” — Booklist


When We Found Home (HQN Books; July 10, 2018; $26.99), the latest novel
from beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery, explores the
at once tenuous and unbreakable bonds of family. Delving into the intertwined
lives of three siblings who have only discovered each other’s existence after
years apart, the rich, heartfelt narrative goes to the very core of what family
means and the ways we must sometimes create our own happiness out of the
imperfect cards we are dealt. Once again, as RT Book Reviews has said, Susan
Mallery finds “the perfect balance, digging deep to develop complex, dynamic
characters and captivating, interwoven storylines, while maintaining the perfect
degree of lightness for a summer read.”

 Octogenarian Alberto Carlesso has only recently discovered the existence of grandchildren he never knew he had—the products of his only son’s far-flung relationships with different women. As the founder of a hugely successful gourmet mail order business selling quality Italian food, Alberto has amassed significant wealth, but family ties are most important. Having largely raised his eldest grandson, Malcolm, since age twelve, Alberto is now delighted to discover that Malcolm has two half-sisters: 26-year-old Callie and 12 year-old Keira. Yet, brought to Seattle to live together in the Carlesso manse, these siblings and strangers discover that you can not always force family affection. 

 Malcolm, who until recently has been the only Carlesso, now runs Alberto’s Alfresco, aided by his best friend Santiago. He is a stalwart and honorable man, although his past has left him emotionally
detached.When Keira arrives in the household, Malcolm is at a loss over how to relate to and guide an adolescent, and their relationship is strained. Keira, who has spent most of her life in the foster care system, is understandably wary and overwhelmed by this new life of privilege into which she has been dropped. 


When Callie shows up, it further alters the family dynamic. With a troubled past of her own, including a stint in prison, Callie has worked hard to reintegrate herself into society, and this new fairytale life she has abruptly inherited is beyond comprehension at times. 


 As Malcolm struggles in his new role as brother and de facto head of the family,one person could
help him navigate the thorny path. Delaney, who works as a barista at the coffee stand in the lobby of his building, left behind a highly successful finance career after the shooting death of her police officer fiancé. She is smart, capable, and compassionate. And she can see that under the layer of emotional armor that Malcolm has donned there lurks a great guy ready to love and be loved. But, the drama will extend outside the walls of the Carlesso home when an internal crime at Alberto’s Alfresco threatens not only the business’s bottom line, but the tangled interconnections in the closely-knit company, 


 Susan Mallery writes multilevel plots “rich with assumptions, expectations, and classic family
dynamics, plus exceptionally well-developed and appealing characters,” says Library Journal. Heartfelt, hopeful, and compulsively readable, When We Found Home is vintage storytelling from one of today’s most endearing voices.

NEW RELEASE ~ The Bachelor Auction by J.C. Reed



THE BACHELOR AUCTION
by JC. REED

Title: The Bachelor Auction
Author: J.C. Reed
Released: July 2, 2018
Genre: Mature New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance
Novella

Blurb:
The Bachelor Auction

"Out of all the stupid things I could have said and done, insulting the rich and influential guy who could make or break our business has probably topped the charts. Calling someone a creep isn’t so bad, is it?"

All is fair in love and business…

My friend’s plan is pretty simple: win the bachelor auction in a charity event and get the most influential man to sign a business deal with us. It’s a do or die situation. But plans rarely go as you would expect.

When the bids begin to take ginormous proportions, my friend can’t stop in her rush of excitement. We don’t have the money. We can’t afford him, and yet, before I can even comprehend what’s happening, we’re the highest bid.

“The bachelor” aka Tyler Becks isn’t old and ugly. He isn’t very business-like, either. In fact, it’s hard to imagine that someone with his brain and bank account can be this sexy.
He understands our cash-strapped situation and is kind enough to cancel the bid. Let us out of the contract. No hard feelings. Or so he claims.

He’s even kind enough to want to work with us. With me, in particular. I can’t refuse, even though working for him means I have to see him every day. My future depends on it.

I won't let my guard down. I won't fall for him, and particularly not now that I know he’s hiding something from me. Everything comes at a price. Even Tyler’s generosity.

Tour Blitz ~ Seaside Sweets by Melissa Chambers



After her ex runs up her credit card, clears her bank account, and gets her fired, Seanna Perry makes her escape to the quaint beach town of Seaside, Florida. The houses are pastel, the ocean air heaven, and the men hot as the Gulf Coast sun…one in particular. But while paying the price, literally, for the last man she trusted with her heart, she’s not interested in any sort of beach romance, or so she keeps reminding herself.

Living in the idyllic coastal paradise of the 30A area hasn’t eased Blake Evans’ guilt over what went down three years ago. He can’t stop blaming himself, and certainly none of his wonderful friends can ever find out what happened. Blake’s done a good job of keeping romantic feelings toward any women at bay, and he needs to keep it that way. But when Seanna begins to show him how to live again, he finds himself struggling to keep his guard up.

Seaside Sweets is book one in the Love Along Highway 30A series, which features beautiful beach communities, a circle of unique and amazing friends, and romances that will have you cheering on the couples and fanning yourself from the heat. All books are standalone and can be enjoyed in or out of order.


Excerpt:

An M83 song came over the speakers, electronic dance music’s answer to the slow dance. She tilted her head to the side, lifting an eyebrow. “After that Chicken Dance, you got this one in the bag.”

He huffed a laugh, trying to hold back his grin, but not doing a good job of it. She hadn’t seen him smile this much the whole time she knew him. He pulled her to him, resting his hands on her hips. She eased her hands up to his shoulders, her stomach alive with a nervous flutter. She had always been fairly confident around men. It had been the rare bird who could put her insides into a tizzy. But there was something about Blake’s quiet cool, the fact that he seemed to listen when she talked and actually care about what she said. He wasn’t one of those straight guys where she felt she had a good thirty seconds then needed to wrap it up.

But more than anything, it was the way he looked at her—his blue eyes boring into hers like he knew her…like he was curious about her. And she wanted to know more about him—anything he’d be willing to share. He lifted his chin, seeming ten feet tall so close to her, sending her heartbeat up a step. She looked away, breaking under his gaze.

She leaned into his chest, as he pulled her there. She wasn’t sure who had made the move—maybe both of them at the same time. She breathed in the scent of his skin and lifted her chin to get a good whiff of his neck. The subtlest hint of his body wash lingered, causing her to close her eyes and drink him in.

Her hands wanted to wander down Blake’s back toward his ass—his perfectly proportioned, round ass. Tonight, it was covered by his blazer, but Halloween costume material was thin and cheap. If she could get her hands down there tonight, she could get a good squeeze in. He pulled back from her. “What are you smiling about?”

Maya Forbes has never had a one-night-stand. With her irresponsible but brilliant sister filling the role of flighty one, Maya must live sensibly and dutifully. But when she meets a gorgeous redneck from Panama City Beach who makes her head whirl, she must quit thinking idiotic thoughts about upending her life after one week of mind-altering sex, especially with her dream promotion waiting for her back home.

Bo Harrison has lived his entire life in a tourist town where the women he meets are typically gone in a week. After a long-term relationship that left him mentally drained, he didn’t mind the easy, week-long romances for a while. But watching his best friend fall in love has him thinking along those lines, especially when he meets a woman unlike any he’s ever dated—smart, sexy, independent. The catch? She leaves in one week, of course.



      With Shayla Harrison’s dangerous ex leaving rehab and headed her way, she needs to find a safe house and fast. When tall, dark, and ridiculously handsome Chase O’Neil offers a secure place to stay in beautiful Seagrove Beach for dirt cheap, she and her wallet can’t refuse. Romance is the last thing she wants, but the safety and warmth she feels with Chase are impossible to ignore.

Chase is the life of the party. He makes everyone laugh—whatever it takes to hide a soul-deep pain he can't fix. He’s been living in romance purgatory since his son died and his marriage ended six years ago. When he meets the mysterious and intriguing Shayla, the emotional wall he’s worked so hard to build starts to crumble. She makes him want all the things he knows he can’t have, including her love.
