My Review: 
4.3 Star Review – Amber’s Fantasy

I recommend this book.

Amber enjoys reading ménage stories on her lunch break but no one knows about them or that her secret fantasy is to try re-creating the stories. 

When she can’t get her computer to work before a big meeting she asks Ray for help.  After helping Ray offers to help move her boxes and stumbles across her books.

When they are alone he offers to help make her fantasy come true she is embarrassed and turned on at the same time.  Ray has no idea what he is doing but he totally wants Amber.  So if in order to get her he has to do something different he decides that it is worth it.

Should she take him up on the offer?  Truly will it be worth it in the end for either of them? Or will it tear apart even the friendship between them both?

Very hot and sexy read!!  Can’t wait for Pepper’s next book.


Author Info

Like most writers, I’ve worn quite a collection of hats over the years ~ voice actor, artist, bookkeeper, retail sales ~ but I’ve always wanted to be a writer. My biggest dream was to see my name on a book cover. Now, with the advent of e-publishing, the covers may be virtual, but the thrill of seeing my name on them is real. I am so humbled by the idea that my stories might draw in a reader and provide her an hour or two of entertainment.

I’ve been married to my best friend Tom for thirty years. Together we’ve raised two amazing sons, and recently welcomed our first grand daughter, Leona Mae. Most days you can find me at our family’s computer repair shop in a small town outside Portland, Oregon. At night I go home to my rambling fixer-upper in the woods and toil at my writing, assisted by a small menagerie of furry assistants.

I love it when a reader takes a moment to reach out and let me know what she thinks of my stories. I hope you’ll feel free to email me or leave a comment on my website.

[Review & Giveaway] CANDLELIGHT and KISSES Anthology By Kaylie Newell, Nola Cross & Pepper Anthony

Candlelight and Kisses Anthology
By: Kaylie Newell, Nola Cross & Pepper Anthony


A Home for my Heart by Nola Cross

“They say you can never go home again. Try telling that to your heart.”

When big-city attorney, Jonathan Silver, agreed to be godfather to his infant niece five years before, he didn’t dream he would actually end up as her guardian. He’d never imagined himself as a family man. Now he’s not only an instant father to little Rachel, but also inherits the house where he grew up in the small town of Everfield, Washington. When he left Everfield fifteen years before, he never planned to return. Now for Rachel’s sake, he’s reordered his priorities and come home to join a two-man law practice.

Merridee Cresswell always wanted a big family. She and her ex-husband tried unsuccessfully for years to have kids; their marriage eventually failed from the strain. Since then, she has poured all her maternal feelings into her children’s clothing store, Frog’s Togs, and the special program she runs to help disadvantaged kids in Everfield.

When his first legal client hires him to sue Merridee for negligence, Jonathan has to investigate the shop keeper’s character. Is she really as flakey as his client says? Or is she the warm, lovely woman she appears to be, the woman so ready to take Rachel under her wing and make Christmas special again? And what about him? Could there be room in her heart for Jonathan too?

Sunny’s Second Chance by Pepper Anthony

“What if love really is lovelier the second time around?” 

It’s a rough Christmas for the just-divorced Sunny and her six-year-old daughter, Jasmine. When your no-good husband leaves you for a pretty young dancer, it’s hard not to feel old, fat and frumpy. But then she meets a handsome widower, Ben Stillman, and his young son, Spencer. The two kids hit it off, dragging their parents into an unwitting friendship.

Sunny’s never thought about dating a white man. The whole interracial thing seems risky, especially since Jasmine is still struggling with adjusting to her father’s defection. What if the little girl gets attached to Ben and Spencer, and things don’t work out?

Ben has been struggling under the weight of grief since his wife’s death a year ago. He suspects it’s too soon to move on, but somehow he wants to make Christmas special for Spencer. Then he meets Sunny and everything changes. She chases away the darkness and makes him feel alive again. Can the two of them learn to trust the magic between them long enough to give love a second chance?

The Mariner’s Gift by Kaylie Newell

Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you least expect.

When LA Times journalist Zola Mitchell decides to head home to San Francisco this December, it’s to write a piece on the legendary Alcatraz prison. It has nothing to do with her high school crush Oliver Tworek, who’s recently moved back to start up a tour boat business to The Rock. At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.

But when Oliver ends up asking her to dinner, Zola can’t refuse. And when he kisses her under a display of Christmas fireworks from aboard his boat, she can barely remember her own name. After twenty years, nothing seems to have changed. Oliver’s still popular and gorgeous, and Zola’s still…well, Zola. Behind the successful job, and underneath her shiny new grown up exterior, Zola still feels like the skinny girl from junior year English. Will she ever be able to conquer those little girl insecurities? And more importantly, will she ever get to know the real Oliver; the one who might just have a few secrets of his own?

My Review: 
4.0 Star Review – Candlelight and Kisses 

I recommend this book.

Who doesn’t enjoy a good holiday story?  In this book you get three different stories.  Each story was a good read.  All three contain solid characters and 2 contain single parents/guardian’s.  All three are sweet romances.  All in all three very good stories.  I had never read stories from these authors but these stories have made me a fan of all three.

A Home For My Heart:
Jonathan must come back home.  He agreed to be his niece’s Guardian years ago.  Now he must move back to take care of her.  While back in town he is working at a law firm and his first case is to sue Merridee.  He comes know her and she is a wonderful person who loves children.  Can she help heal his niece? Does he want her too? what happens if they fall for each other?  

Sunny’s Second Chance:
The kids try to bring the parents together through friendship.  If your spouse leaves you for another woman you are bound to feel bad about yourself.  Should you really start a relationship on the rebound.  What happens when the one you are with lights up your life?

The Mariner’s Gift:
When Zoe goes home for a story she is drawn to Oliver her friend from school.  When you are young and like a boy and he states you are just friends it can crush a girl’s hopes and dreams.  Why does Oliver always make her feel like she’s back I high school?  Can she overcome her insecurities long enough to reel in Oliver?
