COVER REVEAL FOR HOLDING YOU by the One and Only Kelly Elliott!

Isn't this a beautiful cover?  And knowing Kelly, it will be just perfect for the story of  Lauren and Colt.  If you have not yet had the pleasure of reading any of Kelly's books, you have a great treat in store but I strongly encourage you to read the other two books in this series prior to HOLDING YOU so you will get the full impact of her storytelling abilities.  Of course, then you will want to run, not walk to get a copy of WANTED.... the book that started it all and ... well you're starting to catch my drift. ;)

HOLDING YOU is book three in the Love Wanted In Texas Series.
Release date is May 5 2015
Cover Design by Lisa Jay Studio

Synopsis -
Lauren Reynolds wanted only two things in life—to run her father’s horse breeding business and Colt Mathews. Fearing Colt would take her position within the family business, she tried to push him far away from her heart.
When life could no longer keep Lauren and Colt apart, their two worlds became one. Every second of every moment, they spent together. Their love bloomed into something neither of them imagined—a bond so strong Lauren and Colt believed nothing would ever stand in their way.
However, life threw a cruel twist into Colt and Lauren’s planned happily ever after. Will fate let them live out the life they dreamed of, or will one of them be left alone, lost and angry?

“I’ll spend forever holding you … even if it’s only in my memory.”

Once they’re back in Texas though, this all-business marriage might just turn into an all-consuming love.

Waves of Love on Cowboys n Country

While this is not a Cowboy book, it does take place in a laid back, small seaside town, much the we way country folk enjoy life and I LOVED the book so thought I would share.  Enjoy!!

Beach Read #1
by Lori Ann Mitchell

Published:  November 6, 2014
Length:  104 pages
Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Can love overcome an age difference of more than 10 years? At thirty-two, Sage Drake has the world by the tail. She owns her own bookstore, in sunny Florida, and loves her work so much she lives in the apartment above the store. Then one day a young surfer strolls in, cadging free coffee and donuts from her little cafĂ©. His name is Derek Chambers, and he’s no regular surfer: he’s an author of a series of surfing travelogues, eager to do a book-signing or two at Sage’s store. She goes him one better by offering to host a series of writing workshops, with Derek as the star. In return, Derek offers to teach Sage – who’s never learned – how to surf. Will the two find love in the waves?

My Review:

Have you ever wished you could find a warm, sunny coastal town full of fun shops and eateries complete with a quaint little bookstore/bakery? Beach wear would of course be the norm and the temperature would hover near perfect all year long. Summer would bring the requisite tourist season but this town is just enough off the beaten path that it would never too busy. Have you wished for this kind of place? I have, even if only in my dreams.

Ms. Mitchell must have either found such a place or dreamed of it along with all of us because that is exactly the town WAVES OF LOVE takes place in. I can feel the sunshine on my back and the warm, salty air as I write this now and remembering the way the story made me feel has me smiling ear to ear. Basically a story of a young man who arrives in town and the bakery owner who is immediately drawn to him, it is the perfect summer read. 

Light and breezy with no issues too heavy, the romance is wonderful. There is a little age difference involved and some tastefully written sex scenes. It most certainly has a happily ever after or at least for now and the author seems to have plans for more books to go along with it, making it a series. I highly recommend this light, contemporary romance.

About Author Lori Ann Mitchell:

I was born in Miami and as I became of age moved to the east coast and studied in one of the Ivy league schools.  A few years later I became a senior partner in a major law firm located in New York City, my current residence and the best city in the world.  When I am not looking for love, I write about it.  The stories are based on my own experience; the men described are people I have actually met in other circumstances.  I use the pen name Lori Ann Mitchell (it rhymes with my real name) as I can't reveal my true identity due to my career.

Lindsay McKenna: Taking Fire — Just Released!

There are two black Arabian horses that figure prominently in Taking Fire.  US Marine Corps Sergeant Khatereh (Khat) Shinwari, uses them to cause havoc, attack the Taliban, protect her father’s village along the Afghan border with Pakistan.  She had two full sisters, two Arabian mares, Mina and Zorah.  Mina is her main riding horse.  Zorah is a pack-horse, carrying supplies and medicines to the villages that Khat takes care of.  She is a paramedic, as part of her training.
Khat has learned to be a shadow warrior using her sturdy, endurance trained mounts.  Mina is the one that she rides and sets up ambushes as well as sniper attacks, up in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan, near the Pak border.  With a black horse at night, it won’t be seen by the Taliban or Al-Queda soldiers.  During the daylight hours as she operates as a Shadow Warrior creating havoc for her vaunted enemy, Mina may gallop for miles along rough, narrow trails used only by goats.   Khat relies on her nimble, swift mare to carry her away from the enemy before they can find and capture her.  She has evaded her enemy for five years, lives in any number of caves to escape detection, takes care of her hardy, brave Arabians, who in turn, take care of her.
Because Khat is half Afghani, she had the blood of these warriors in her DNA.  And utilizing the Arabian horse is part of her black ops life.  Mina gets her to an ambush, and helps her escape it.  Khat cares and adores her brave and beautiful horses.  And they love her in return.
Khat needed this breed because of it’s well-known endurance.  First bred in the Middle East, the Egyptian Arabians are well known for their delicate beauty.  But their beauty is molded by thousands of years of being bred and living in the hot deserts of many countries.  There is no breed more intelligent than an Arabian.  Even today, among the Bedouins, their horses are cherished  At night, the horses come and stay with the family in their tent, an accepted part of the human household.  Over these thousands of years, because of this tight human-animal connection, Arabians are considered “people” horse breed.  The bond between people and Arabians is one of legend nowadays.  But it’s true.  I know because I bred, raised and sold Arabians in Ohio for ten years when we had our farm.  As you read Taking Fire, just know that the information on these wonderful four-legged secondary characters is all true.
