Review: A Very Ruby Christmas by Lavinia Kent

by MK French

a free ebook was provided
As Madame Rouge, Ruby controls a brothel and tries her best to take care of the girls in her employ, even as she wants to sell it and retire as the wife of a sea captain. She had made friends in the titled world of Regency England, and wants to help them have one last hurrah in her brothel.


As the fifth book in a series, A Very Ruby Christmas (October 2016; Loveswept; 9780399593871;
ebook) introduces characters and references situations from their novels. Not having read them first, I wasn't too lost while reading their chapters. It probably also helps that the book focused more on the sexual nature of the relationships and the BDSM, with very little reliance on the plot. This seemed to be a little more graphic than most Loveswept romances, maybe because the book was nearly all sex scenes for the various couples and the conflict between Ruby's desire to see the brothel cared for and to retire had no subplot to compete with. Ruby was very likable and cared dearly for her friends as well as Derek, who cared just as much for her happiness and need to be independent.

All in all, this was a very neatly done novella.


Born and raised in New York City, M.K. French started writing stories when very young, dreaming of different worlds and places to visit. She always had an interest in folklore, fairy tales, and the macabre, which has definitely influenced her work. She currently lives in the Midwest with her husband, three young children, and golden retriever.

Review: Christmas Candy by Samantha Jacobey

by Donna Huber

Christmas Candy (October 2015; ISBN12: 978-1535036597) is the first book in Samantha Jacobey's holiday themed Sweet Christmas series. This short novella was published last year in ebook and print but it is now available in audio book. Also recently published is book 2 - Christmas Eve.

I listened to the audio version, which I received free from the publicist. I thought it would make the perfect book to listen to as I finished up the last days of work for 2016. The story is short - the audiobook is just over 3 hours. While the plot is your typical "girl has sworn off men, man will pursue woman regardless" story with some uniqueness sprinkled on top.

Candy, who became pregnant at 15, is the single mother of a special needs child. She lives with her mother who was widowed several years before when her police husband was shot and killed in the line of duty. Gary is new at the local fire station and meets Candy when he stops in at the nearby convenience store where Candy works. He is taken with her and eventually asked her out, only to be turned down flat.

I had high hopes that this would be the Christmas story I was looking for. It had the potential to be fun and flirty with a healthy dose of drama (there's a fireman, a fire, and a damsel in distress). However, the audio book narrator grated on my nerves, immediately putting a damper on the story. She just didn't seem right for the project. The voice of Gary wasn't as deep or manly as I thought it should have been and I though there were other places where the inflection was off.

Perhaps if I had read the story for myself I would have found the story more fun, but as it was I struggled to finish it. I know that it is a novella, but I thought there was a lot of room for expansion and that details were glossed over that may have added depth to the story.

Overall, it was an okay Christmas story. I would recommend reading the book instead of listening to the audiobook. Also as it is part of a series, there may be more character development and deepening of relationships as the series progresses.

Have Yourself a Debbie Macomber Christmas

by Donna Huber



Are you traveling by car this Christmas season? Perhaps you are just driving through the neighborhoods admiring the Christmas lights. Or are you still making your daily commute and growing tired of the constant loop of the same handful of holiday songs? I tend to listen to audio books while in the office. Some of the best Christmas audio books I've listened to come from Debbie Macomber. Her stories are always heartwarming. Here are the ones I have found at my digital library.


cover Dashing Through the Snow
Last year, I happened across Macomber's Dashing Through the Snow and absolutely loved it. It was fun and flirty. So far this one is my favorite story of hers.

Ashley Davison, a graduate student in California, desperately wants to spend the holidays with her family in Seattle. Dashiell Sutherland, a former army intelligence officer, has a job interview in Seattle and must arrive by December 23. Though frantic to book a last-minute flight out of San Francisco, both are out of luck: Every flight is full, and there’s only one rental car available. Ashley and Dash reluctantly decide to share the car, but neither anticipates the wild ride ahead.

At first they drive in silence, but forced into close quarters Ashley and Dash can’t help but open up. Not only do they find they have a lot in common, but there’s even a spark of romance in the air. Their feelings catch them off guard—never before has either been so excited about a first meeting. But the two are in for more twists and turns along the way as they rescue a lost puppy, run into petty thieves, and even get caught up in a case of mistaken identity. Though Ashley and Dash may never reach Seattle in time for Christmas, the season is still full of surprises—and their greatest wishes may yet come true.



cover Starry Night
I had wanted to listen to Starry Night for a while. It was always checked out last Christmas, but I lucked out this Christmas season and only had to wait a day. It was a fun story, worth the wait.

Carrie Slayton, a big-city society-page columnist, longs to write more serious news stories. So her editor hands her a challenge: She can cover any topic she wants, but only if she first scores the paper an interview with Finn Dalton, the notoriously reclusive author. Living in the remote Alaskan wilderness, Finn has written a megabestselling memoir about surviving in the wild. But he stubbornly declines to speak to anyone in the press, and no one even knows exactly where he lives. Digging deep into Finn's past, Carrie develops a theory on his whereabouts. It is the holidays, but her career is at stake, so she forsakes her family celebrations and flies out to snowy Alaska. When she finally finds Finn, she discovers a man both more charismatic and more stubborn than she even expected. And soon she is torn between pursuing the story of a lifetime and following her heart. Filled with all the comforts and joys of Christmastime, "Starry Night" is a delightful novel of finding happiness in the most surprising places.


cover Angels at the Table
Angels at the Table is part of Macomber's Angels Everywhere series. I have not read any books in this series, though after meeting Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy in this Christmas tales I might be looking for others in this series.

In this joyous and whimsical holiday novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber rings in the season with laughs, love, and a charming dose of angelic intervention.

Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy know that an angel's work is never done, especially not during such a wondrous time as New Year's Eve. With an apprentice angel, Will, under their wings, they descend upon Times Square in New York City eager to join in the festivities. And when Will spies two lonely strangers in the crowd, he decides midnight is the perfect time to lend a heavenly helping hand.

Lucie Farrara and Aren Fairchild meet after bumping into each other--seemingly by accident--in Times Square on New Year's Eve. They immediately hit it off and find they have a lot in common: Lucie is a burgeoning chef and Aren is a respected food critic. But just as quickly as they're brought together, another twist of fate tears them apart, leaving Lucie and Aren with no way to reconnect.

A year later, Lucie is the head chef of an acclaimed new restaurant and Aren is a successful columnist for a major New York newspaper. For all the time that's passed, the two have not forgotten their one serendipitous evening--and neither have Shirley, Goodness, Mercy, and Will. To reunite the young couple, the angels cook up a brilliant plan: mix true love, a second chance, and a generous sprinkle of mischief to create an unforgettable Christmas miracle.


cover Twelve Days of Christmas
Twelve Days of Christmas in Macomber's newest Christmas story. It is still on my holds list and I'm unlikely to get it before the end of the year.

Friendly and bubbly, Julia Padden likes nearly everyone, but her standoffish neighbor, Cain Maddox, presents a particular challenge. No matter how hard she’s tried to be nice, Cain rudely rebuffs her at every turn, preferring to keep to himself. But when Julia catches Cain stealing her newspaper from the lobby of their apartment building, that’s the last straw. She’s going to break through Cain’s Scrooge-like exterior the only way she knows how: by killing him with kindness.

To track her progress, Julia starts a blog called The Twelve Days of Christmas. Her first attempts to humanize Cain are far from successful. Julia brings him homemade Christmas treats and the disagreeable grinch won’t even accept them. Meanwhile, Julie’s blog becomes an online sensation, as an astonishing number of people start following her adventures. Julia continues to find ways to express kindness and, little by little, chips away at Cain’s gruff façade to reveal the caring man underneath. Unbelievably, Julia feels herself falling for Cain—and she suspects that he may be falling for her as well. But as the popularity of her blog continues to grow, Julia must decide if telling Cain the truth about having chronicled their relationship to the rest of the world is worth risking their chance at love.


There are a number more Christmas stories from Debbie Macomber and if my experience holds true then any of them you pick up will be wonderful.

Review: Rule Breaker by Kat Bastion and Stone Bastion

by MK French

November 2016; 9780996418164; ebook & print
(400 pages); romance
a free book was provided for this review 
Mase grew up in a world of entitlement and privilege as the son of a senator now trying to move from one surfing spot to another. Leilani is a Hawaiian surfer tasked by her brother to recruit Mase. They have little in common other than surfing and the love of nature, but the attraction is instant and undeniable for them both. Their families don't approve of the relationship, and they're aware of racial tensions.

It was great to see an interracial relationship actively discuss the problems that could arise within families and the community without minimizing the potentially damaging effects that it can have. At the same time, this isn't a book that focuses only the hardships inherent in such matches. There's the first blush of romance as they deal with lust and their emotions, and trying to make sure that their feelings are reciprocated. Taking place in Maui, Hawaii, the backdrop becomes as much a character as Leilani's brothers. Locations are lovingly described, and you really get a sense of what Mase and Leilani love about the land. Everyone might know the term "ohana" from Lilo and Stitch now, but the word has a very strong connotation in this book. Yes, it's a romance novel, but family members are just as important to Leilani as her growing love for Mase. The conflict of familial expectations and going after she wants is very real and is likely to be a familiar kind of conflict for many readers. For fans of the Bastions' other works, Mase's friends do briefly show up at the end of the book.

Audrey Rich: What I Love and Hate About Being Self-Published #MondayBlogs

cover Masquerading Our Love
Back in 2011, after three months of writing Masquerading Our Love, self-publishing this YA Contemporary Romance wasn’t even on my radar.

Since I had spent every possible free moment I had (no more television) writing this book I was determined to capture the Holy Grail: landing a traditionally published contract with an advance. The writing bug hit me hard and I wanted to write about the rest of my characters.

After researching the publishing world, I learned that it could possibly take years for a big publisher to accept my book but self-publishing would only take minutes. But the biggest surprise was that publishers still required authors to market their own books. However, neither of these two facts deterred me from my strong desire to join the ranks of the few, fortunate authors to be accepted.

I forged on until 2014 when an acquiring editor read my first three chapters. She liked my writing and my plot but not my main character. I loved my wimpy teenage character so much I decided to forgo my dream and self-publish. Not even the editor’s open invitation to submit other books directly to her could entice me to pursue the traditionally published route. Instead, I continued writing my other novels and learned as much about the self-publishing world. Here are two lists about what I dislike and like about being a self-published author.

I’m sure I could add at least another ten things to both lists but I think ten is enough.

Top Ten Things I Dislike about Being a Self-Published Author:

  1. Self-promoting every single day or you won’t sell one single book.
  2. Wearing so many hats at once I think my head is about to spin from their weight. These are just a few we must wear: editor, blurb writer (summing up 80k words into less than 250 words, torture me now), promoter, accountant, legal advisor, etc. The worst is editing the book so many times you think your about to puke if you have to read it again before reading it another twenty times.
  3. Writer friends who promise a review after raving that it’s a great book and they love it and then nothing! Really, you’re a writer, please review it you already did the hard part and you liked it. Heck, if you hate it I still want you to review. All. I. Need. Is. REVIEWS. PLEASE.
  4. Losing money as I pay for a decent cover, editing, free paperbacks and ebooks, and promos. Why do the promos have to cost so much money? And why do these promo sites need a gazillion reviews? Can my scrapped knees take any more kneeling when I have to beg, again and again for a review?
  5. Self-promoting when you have no followers, no reviews, and the book is losing its ranking like a Mt. Everest expedition. It’s a slow and painful climb up when all you want the rank to be is low, number one not in the millions.
  6. Learning that your book will sit without any sales no matter how good your cover and blurb are because you haven’t any promos, because you need reviews, because readers haven’t found your book, etc. It’s a vicious circle that hurts my brain just thinking about it.
  7. Finding out that you need more reviews to promote your books. Lots of reviews. UGH!
  8. People you practically give your first born to for a promise to review a book only to find out that they started reading it but it’s not in their favorite genre so they don’t want to review. But, people, I need your review.
  9. Family and friends who think you’re crazy for attempting to publish a book.
  10. Did I mention self-promoting until you’re blue in the face? Where are the readers for my book?


Top Ten Things I Love about Being a Self-Published Author

  1. Connecting to readers who actually read and like my book.
  2. Not having to change anything based on marketing experts. I did make my main character less wimpy based on initial feedback from beta readers. And although she’s still insecure and not as assertive and confident as her other friends she does learn to stand up for herself.
  3. Editing the book and finding out it’s so much better than the last time you read it and not puking!
  4. Authors who review the book even though it’s not in their favorite genre and they still gave it a four or five stars!
  5. Did I mention READERS! who are interested in my book?
  6. Close family and friends supporting my efforts, willing to spread the word because they realize being a self-published author is a sixty hour work week.
  7. Facebook parties where I interact with potential readers; especial when readers say they can’t wait to read my book.
  8. Meeting other self-published and traditionally published authors; especially those who read my book and don’t hate it.
  9. Readers who become followers!
  10. Did I mention READERS! who may like my book after they finish reading it? And they may actually review it, yes, please?

I’m not sure if I’ll ever be a famous author but I do know that I love to write stories of teenagers, in love, in agony over the one they’ve been crushing on forever. And I look forward to meeting fellow YA readers. Writing, whether for me or others, is just an amazing journey that I recommend it to everyone. Self-publishing, well that’s another story.

6 Christmas eBooks that are FREE

by Donna Huber


The other day I was getting desperate to find a satisfying Christmas book. I wanted something fun and flirty, short and sweet. Featuring snow would be a plus (I live in the south!). I wasn't having any luck at my digital library finding the perfect audio book, so I took to the free ebook lists at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I found several that had potential and have already read one of them which fit the bill perfectly. So if you are looking a story filled with holiday magic, but don't have the budget for more books this month I hope these freebies will help you too.


cover Blame the Mistletoe
Liz Flowers has never enjoyed Christmas, but this one is shaping up to be the worst by far. She let her ex take her daughter to Mexico while she stays behind in a strange town, sitting her former mother-in-law’s high strung little dog. It’s an opportunity to meet new people, but this California girl doesn’t have much in common with the ranchers in small town Marietta.ex take her daughter to Mexico while she stays behind in a strange town, sitting her former mother-in-law’s high strung little dog.

It’s an opportunity to meet new people, but this California girl doesn’t have much in common with the ranchers in small town Marietta.

Blake Canon perks up with male interest when he sees a new face at his friend’s Christmas cocktail party. His son is away and a light affair would take his mind off his financial troubles. Then he realizes he knows Liz. She was once married to the brother of his ex-wife.

Their children might be cousins, but Blake and Liz do the kissing—under the mistletoe. It’s the beginning of a new view of Christmas for Liz, but when their children arrive home unexpectedly, and family secrets are revealed, Liz isn’t sure she’ll stay in Marietta for Christmas after all.

Blame the Mistletoe is book 2 in the Montana series, but I couldn't tell I was missing anything by not having read book 1 first. I suspect that each book is focused on different couples with ties to the small town of Marietta. This novella was a fun and flirty quick read (I read in in one night).

cover Let It Snow

Years passed and they went their separate ways, both believing they had been rejected by the other, but when circumstances bring them together again—Woody a bachelor and Nancy a widow—old feelings emerge. They try to revert to being just friends, yet pain from the past has lessened over time and they wonder if it's really too late for love.

As Christmas snowflakes fall, can miracles really happen?

When a snooping Gwyneth uncovers a shocking secret, she puts herself in mortal danger.
