Decide to Live (Finding the Strength #3)
By Shirley Anne Edwards
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Young Adult, New Adult
Release Date: 14 February, 2021

When it hurts too much to live, how does one find the strength to stay alive and find hope again?

Reiko Nakano has a charmed life. Not only does the twenty-three-old come from a life of luxury because of her celebrity parents and supermodel sister, she’s best friends with the biggest brother and sister pop duo in the world- Gio and Gem Grove. But what the public assumes is wrong different because of what Reiko suffers in private. She feels she’s an outcast in her own family because of her ptosis and her social anxiety. She then makes the biggest mistake of her life and tries to turn her lifelong crush on Gio into something more. His cruel rejection after she lets him take her virginity leaves her heartbroken.

Reiko hides in the least likely of places- the small town of Albee, Pennsylvania. There she enjoys her anonymity and enrolls in summer classes at Maison University. She hopes she can fit in as a student, but life continues to play tricks on her when she’s hit in the face by a football from one of the most popular boys on campus, Will Forest. But this accidental but memorial meeting will help heal her fragile emotions because Will shows her how special she is to those she meets, including him.

She isn’t sure what to make of Will. He’s too nice and sweet, and treats her like gold. She accepts his attempts at romance even though it’s only temporary. But as the summer flies by, she doesn’t want to give Will up, who doesn’t know the truth about her “vacation”. And when Gio arrives in town, and threatens to out Reiko, she has some hard choices to make. Does she come clean to Will so she can decide to finally live on her own terms and embrace the amazing woman Will thinks her to be?

Blog Tour ~ Fighting For Lorna by Deanndra Hall


Title: Fighting For Lorna (Badge of Honor: Tarpley VFD, Season 2 Book 4) 

Author: Deanndra Hall 

Genre: Military Romance 

Cover Designer: Buoni Amici Press, LLC 

Release Date: February 16, 2021 

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

As a local domestic violence and sexual assault counselor, the respect of her community is critical to Lorna Reardon. That would be hard to maintain if they found out she was seeing a younger man.

Twelve years doesn’t matter to Gant “G-man” Meadows. Once he tells Tank Reardon that his mom is “hot,” Tank and Pops go to work on Lorna until she gives the guy a chance. For a firefighter, metalsmith, and former motorcycle club member, Gant is surprisingly genteel, spiritual, and gentle. He’s also determined to keep her safe from an unexpected threat, even though she’s relegated him to nothing more than a dirty little secret in her life.

Gant’s sworn he’ll love her forever, and he’s willing to make the ultimate sacrifice with no regret. The regret will be all Lorna’s. Regret that’s harsh. Regret that’s sharp. Regret that’s deep.

Regret that will last forever.

NEW RELEASE ~ Blind Side by Rayvn Salvador

              Buy now from Amazon. FREE for Kindle Unlimited Subscribers:


Publisher : Lady Boss Press, Inc. (February 15, 2021)

Publication date : February 15, 2021

Categories – Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, Two-Hour Romance Short Reads, Saga Fiction, Sports Romance

Blind Side is part of Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle Universe. 

Life is full of surprises...

The minute running back Draven Jameson sees the stunning, raven-haired beauty in the stands during fan appreciation day, he immediately knows that he needs her in his life. Despite having to battle for his starting spot with his new team in Seattle, and memories of the hardships he endured before entering the league fresh in his mind, things couldn’t be better. Draven can see further into the future than he ever has before—not only with his career but also with his life.

Presley Bantam didn’t mean to mislead the handsome recruit. The way he asked her out swept her off her feet, and things were just too good. Besides, her secret shouldn’t affect him…until it does. Forced to make one of the hardest decisions of her life, Presley chooses her career over her man, hoping she can make it up to him later. But Draven has other ideas.

When the betrayal takes things in a dangerous direction, with lives suddenly hanging in the balance, only truth can save them. Forgiveness is the only thing that can set them free. But will it be enough?



Damn, she was magnificent. I couldn’t believe my luck. She was sweet, attentive, intelligent, and I had no words to describe how sexy I found her. And her assertiveness only added to her appeal.

As she led me through the house to her bedroom, I felt a small surge of guilt rise that I hadn’t postponed this a bit to learn more about her, but I had tried, and she’d flipped the tables on me. It was a position I didn’t mind being in, and I hoped she’d put me in more before the night was through. I inwardly groaned at my bad joke, thinking too much of my blood must have rushed south, and then I laughed aloud.

She turned. “What’s so funny?” She walked backwards through the doorway into a room done up in aqua and brown with hints of silver and .

I looked into her gorgeous grey eyes. “Nothing. I was just being a guy, thinking about how I couldn’t think because my brain no longer had any blood to function properly.” I laughed, and she let go of my hand and stepped closer, patting herself on the back, humor twinkling in her eyes.

“Job well done, then, I’d say.” She reached out and cupped me through my jeans, and my head fell back. I couldn’t contain the groan that slipped past my lips. This woman would kill me.

She caressed me one more time and then looped her arms around my waist as she looked up at me. Without her heels, the top of her head only came up to my chin, and it was adorable.

“So, I have to ask, what’s with the whole ‘little raven’ thing?” she said, sticking her fingers into the back pockets of my jeans and caressing the globes of my ass. I got impossibly harder. “When I first saw you in the stands on fan appreciation day, the first thought that entered my mind, aside from how beautiful you were, was how your hair in the sunshine reminded me of a raven’s wing. When I didn’t know your name, it seemed appropriate. And it just kind of stuck. Plus, raven…Draven. Now that I say it aloud, it sounds kind of possessive. But I’m not all that sorry.”

She rose on tiptoe and nipped at my chin before kissing away the sting. “Okay, that’s kind of perfect. And weirdly…artful. You get extra points for that.”

“Extra points, huh?” I said, raising a brow. “Do I get a prize?”

“I think something can be arranged,” she teased as she spun us and shoved me onto the mattress then proceeded to give me the striptease of my life. Her body was a work of art, curves in all the right places, softness mixed with strength. I couldn’t stop staring. Aside from the cherry blossom branch she had on her collarbone, she had another tattoo on her left ribs. Some kind of skin-rip design where it looked as if you could see into her body and gaze upon the tea party scene from Alice in Wonderland. It was amazing.

I took my time exploring her ink and her assets, eliciting moans and sighs, and more than one shout of joy. She was sweeter than anything I’d ever tasted, and I knew, after the very first lick, that I’d never get enough. We fit together like pieces of a puzzle, and I learned her like I did my playbook, memorizing all the things that led to success.

When we finally collapsed in a heap of boneless, sated, sweaty limbs and harsh breaths, I felt something click inside me. It scared the shit out of me, but I knew in that instant that I had found something special in Presley Bantam. She made me feel more alive. Made my worries—about my job, about the time I had left on my military contract, about being in a new town—utterly disappear.

Sending Jordy down with that note was the best decision I had ever made.

What did they call that? A meet-cute? Whatever it was, it was the start of something I couldn’t wait to explore.

Your Move

Blue Forty-Two

A Little Q&A with Rayvn herself

1. Tell us about yourself.

Born and raised in Wisconsin, I love to write about the Midwest (where the Willow Falls series is set), but I also enjoy exploring new territories like Baltimore (where the BLUE FORTY-TWO cast hangs out), Seattle (where BLIND SIDE takes place), and New Orleans (where my next full-length will be set). I am a huge football lover and love to interject modified personal experiences into my fictional works. ;-)

2. Give a brief description of your book, BLIND SIDE.

Despite their instant and undeniable chemistry, an adorable meet-cute, and a case of mistaken identity, running back Draven Jameson and executive Presley Bantam must navigate the ups and downs of a relationship at a time when neither of them was looking—and are both caught off guard by what they find.

3. Why did you write BLIND SIDE?

After writing BLUE FORTY-TWO, I just felt like Draven needed a book and I had this idea for this sassy football executives who could use a happily ever after. Not to mention, I’ve always wanted to use some of my personal experiences and make them into a great story, and I think I accomplished that.

4. Is this book part of a series?

BLIND SIDE is part of Kristen With Me in Seattle Universe and is part of the Lady Boss Press Quick Snap Collection. These installments are the Championship Editions, so you will see mention of the big game. Both BLUE FORTY-TWO and BLIND SIDE stand alone, but Draven first appeared as a mention in BLUE FORTY-TWO, and Presley is the sister of one of my supporting characters in BLUE FORTY-TWO. Not to mention, Kristen’s Play With Me characters make appearances in both books. There will be at least two more. I have ideas for the running back coach that was mentioned in BLIND SIDE and Presley’s best friend Kennedy. And Presley’s doctor brother will also get a book—his heroine is an assistant coach.

5. The idea of BLIND SIDE is strong in your book. What about that idea moved you?

So, as I mentioned I like to pull from real-life experience when I’m plotting. The way that Draven asks Presley out in BLIND SIDE happened to me with a pro-baseball player. Some of the other things in the book were also loosely based on real life.

6. What was the most challenging part of writing this book?

Honestly, nothing. This book flowed like water. It was wonderful—and terrifying. LOL. Where the struggle came in was when I sent it to my critique partner, my editor, and my beta readers and all of them had differing opinions on different things. I wanted to make everyone happy, but I ultimately went with my gut, and I think the final outcome is great. Early readers are loving it, so we’ll see what others think…

7. What is your favorite passage in the book and why?

There are actually many, but I LOVE this line: “. . . she teased as she dropped down my front, every delectable place on her body caressing the hungry spots on mine.

The tension in his shoulders relaxed a bit under my fingers. “Been a shitty day.” Those beautiful eyes suddenly looked sad and my heart pinged for him. “I’m sorry.” “Not your fault. Just really bad timing.” “I get that.  My day’s been rough too.” As the song played, we descended into silence. Keeping any distance proved impossible on the jam-packed dance floor and from time to time, his body brushed against mine.  The raw lyrics and driving chords echoed in my head and a different kind of heat started in my belly.  One I hadn’t experienced in a long time.  It made me ultra-sensitive to his every movement.  His hands stayed on my waist, but his thumbs brushed across my ribs in a teasing caress.  The tips of my breasts grazed his chest, and I wanted to press them in harder.  Our lower bodies connected, grazing against each other.  He was hard, and my mouth watered with need.  I didn’t remember anything this forceful the last time Karl, and I were together or any time before that.  My imagination took over, and I pictured this green-eyed man driving into me.  Oh, I could almost feel it happening right here and now. He pulled back and his eyes looked into mine.  “I need to get out of here.” Their intensity hit me like a lightning strike. I became feverish and my belly quivered with tightness. “Sure.” “Come with me.”

ML Nystrom had stories in her head since she was a child. All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured her interest. A voracious reader, she’s spent many hours devouring books; therefore, she found it only fitting she should write a few herself! 

ML has spent most of her life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn’t mean she’s pigeon-holed into one mold. She’s been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else she felt like exploring. As one of her students said to her once, "Life’s too short to ignore the opportunities." She has no intention of ever stopping... so welcome to her story world. She hopes you enjoy it!
