Book blitz: Shopping for a CEO’s Honeymoon by Julia Kent

I’ll take a romantic comedy any day, really. And this one’s made it to the list! As I write this, I am buying the first two books in this series. What’s more is they look like really short reads, which means I can squeeze them in on a busy day! 

Shopping for a CEO’s Honeymoon
Julia Kent
(Shopping for a Billionaire #14)
Publication date: July 15th 2018
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

He says we never had a proper honeymoon.

So, instead, he’s giving me… a prepper honeymoon?

Who knew billionaire preppers were a thing?

I guess I’m about to find out.

Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling romantic comedy series continues in Shopping for a CEO’s Honeymoon as Andrew and Amanda settle in to married life… and so much more.

EXCERPT:

Amanda

It’s Monday.

Our home looks like the set for Extreme Home Makeover, except there’s no bus to move and all of the workmen act like I’m invisible as I wander downstairs after waking up naked in an empty bed.

I throw on clothes and am down the stairs when I spot my husband.

“What is going on?” I ask Andrew, who is huddled over blueprints with some guy who looks like he runs a union hall in South Boston. Tight eyes, distrustful look, goatee, and an intensity that makes it clear you want him on your side.

Andrew breaks away, kisses my cheek, and gives me a saucy half grin. “Just like you wanted. Here we go.”

“Here we go what? We barely talked about what we wanted!”

“We did,” he says, suddenly defensive. “In bed,” he whispers.

“What I want in bed has nothing to do with tile colors and three-season sunrooms!” Isay.

Loudly.

“The guys aren’t working on anything like that,” he hisses as a few workmen suppress smiles. “We’re putting in new backup systems.”

“Backups for what?”

“Power outages. Acts of God. Hurricanes. Bomb cyclones that leave six feet of snow.”

I snort. “What, no alien contingency plan? Got a blueprint for a universal extraterrestrial language translator in there?”

Andrew reddens and avoids eye contact.

I frown. “Andrew?” I grab his arm and pull him aside, his muscles tense. “What are you doing? This isn’t how I envisioned remodeling and spending our honeymoon. For one, we didn’t have sex that second time this morning.”

He looks at the clock. “It’s only 7:53. Plenty of time for that.” He grabs me at the waist and pulls me close, trying to divert me with a kiss.

It works.

“We’ve got the geothermal heat unit figured out, and when we redo the gutter system and the roof, in addition to the solar panels, we’ve got an evaporation system set up for clean water collection. Storage is next,” he says to me.

“All that in the first hour of work?” I’m stunned.

“I’m efficient. Two weeks of my focused attention is like five years of a normal human
being’s time.”

“Efficient and humble. I love that in a man.”

“You’d better, because you’re stuck with me forever.”

“Is that a threat or a promise?”

I get a pat on the ass in response.

Book reveal: Betrothed by Christina Bauer

The only reason I’ve come back to reading books from the fantasy genre is because I want to see how innovative people can get with characters and situations and plots. Hope this one fares well too!

Betrothed
Christina Bauer
(Angelbound Origins, #1.5)
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: January 30th 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

***An action-packed novella from Prince Lincoln’s point of view***

When it comes to fighting demons, Prince Lincoln is the greatest warrior in the history of his people, the thrax. Now Lincoln faces his hardest fight yet…and it’snot on a traditional battlefield.

Lincoln wants nothing more than to marry Myla Lewis, the part-demon girl who has captured his heart. However, an evil thrax noble—the powerful Earl of Acca—is prepared to do anything to stop Lincoln and Myla from having a future.

But Lincoln won’t give up on his Myla. Ever.

To fight Aldred, Lincoln works to create a different kind of marriage—an Alliance of the lesser thrax houses against Acca. Sadly, just as Lincoln starts to makes some progress, the nobles who’ve joined his Alliance begin to vanish. Is Aldred behind the disappearances, or is someone else vying for power? When Lincoln discovers the truth, it upends his entire world, threatening his future with Myla in ways no one could ever have imagined.

Book blitz: Just Jenny by Sandra Owens

I can’t ever outgrow good romances. (Please note that the emphasis is on good.)

This one sounds promising to make it to my list of comfort reads. Amongst other things, I am excited to read about Blue Ridge Valley and how it lends to the story. (Mountain romances, country romances are my thing.)

Head on read more about Just Jenny and I hope you are as excited as me.

Just Jenny
Sandra Owens
Publication date: June 27th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

The small mountain town of Blue Ridge Valley is the home of three best friends, Jenny, Autumn, and Savannah. Each woman believes she has her life perfectly planned, but there is a saying in the mountains… If everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.

In Just Jenny, Jenny Nance has a plan—save enough money to tour the world. The desire to traipse the globe is a dream she once shared with her twin sister. Jenny made a deathbed promise to her sister that she would go to all the places they had fantasized visiting together. Nothing will entice her to break her vow to Natalie, not even the sexy new Blue Ridge Valley police chief . . . No matter how attracted she is to him.

Dylan Conrad left the Chicago Police Department to accept the position as Chief of Police in Blue Ridge Valley. Burned out and haunted by a tragedy of his own, he needs to get away from the memories tormenting him. He’s hoping to find peace in the small mountain town, but the quirky residents, an infamous moonshiner, an errant prized bull, and a feisty redhead by the name of Jenny weren’t quite what he had in mind.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

EXCERPT:

We’d just ordered our drinks when Dylan Conrad walked into the lounge. He paused in the entryway, his gaze scanning the room. The man was so freaking hot. At seeing me, he smiled, making my heart thump in my chest.

“Mind if I join you?” he said, coming to a stop behind the empty chair at our table for four. “Unless you’re expecting someone.”

That was said to me. “Nope. Have a seat, Chief.” I had a sudden fantasy of playing cop and criminal with him, me being the bad guy and him having to frisk me. I hoped my cheeks weren’t as red as they felt. He sat next to me, and I caught a whiff of man and something spicy. I also hoped I didn’t start drooling.

His eyes danced with amusement. “Introduce me to your friends, Red.”

Oh. Right. I was sitting here staring at him like an idiot, and now I knew for sure my face was beet red. “Ahem, this is my best friend, Autumn Archer, and her soon-to-be husband, Brian Stratton. Guys, this is Dylan Conrad, Blue Ridge Valley’s new police chief.”

“Welcome to Blue Ridge Valley,” Autumn said. “I’ve heard great things about you.”

Dylan sat back in his chair. “Oh?”

I kicked her under the table. That devilish gleam in her eyes meant she was up to no good.

“Yep. You have really pretty eyes, by the way. Jenn said they were the color of Tennessee whiskey, and she’s right.”

I kicked her again. Harder.

Dylan turned those beautiful eyes on me. “You been talking about me, Red?”

Book blitz: Lolita by Rubina Ramesh

Rubina Ramesh is one of my very favorite people. I love her all the more now, because she has broken the norms of how most romances define heroines. Her bad girl series is about women who are good at heart, live life on their own terms, and make mistakes. The most important attribute of such women is that they don’t use their independence and liberal views as an excuse to make mistakes. Instead, they use the power that they have over their lives to learn from their mistakes.

Lolita is one such woman-honest, unapologetic, and human.

I am proud of Rubina for writing, and writing so well, about such a character.

Print Length: 246 pages
Publisher: Indie published
Publication Date: May 8, 2018
Sold by: Amazon Digital Services LLC
Language: English
Available on Kindle Unlimited
Genre: Romance
Love or Stardom? Was there even a doubt what Lolita wanted?
Though what Lolita wanted and what she got were two different things. When notoriety, that came along with fame, was too much for her to bear, she seeks refuge in the luscious greens of Panchgani.
But a chance accident changes her life forever…
Advait Rana was a workaholic and a single dad. And balancing the two roles was not easy. The guilt of neglecting his 10-year-old, motherless child made him decide to become a better father than he was. Taking a leave of absence from his work, he heads towards Panchgani little knowing that fate had some other plans for him.
A chance accident that changes his life forever…
Born in simplicity, shunned for her ambition by her family, shamed for her choice in men, Lolita is exactly the kind of woman Advait doesn’t want his daughter to be acquainted with. Little does he know that it is this attitude of his which makes him a target for the darling of the silver screen.
For she was born to win over hearts!!!
Editorial Review #1
From Sundari Venkatraman, Bestselling Author of Tied In Knots and many more:
“With an unapologetically badass heroine and a super-hot dude who loves his little daughter more than anything else in the world, Lolita makes for an unputdownable romance; not to miss some truly hot scenes. “
Note from the Author:
This is a standalone novel and is not carried over to the next part.
It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR

Book blitz: Killer Moves by Varsha Dixit

The more I read her work, the more I become a fan of Varsha Dixit’s writing. She is moving from romance to paranormal, and I couldn’t be happier than be a tiny part of her book promotions.

 

 
Killer Moves

Blurb
Everyone has a secret. Aisha Khatri has many! 



Aisha’s life is seemingly mundane on the surface-she writes for television and takes care of her niece Kiara and her retired father. But when Kiara’s life is threatened during a modeling assignment for the famous Kabir Rana, once a suspect for his wife’s murder, the only way Aisha can save Kiara is by accepting the unique ability she has aggressively resisted all her life. 



But Aisha is not the only one with secrets. There are others who have secrets and will kill to keep them. Aisha is determined to protect Kiara even if it means placing herself in the crosshairs of a depraved killer who butchers beautiful girls and leaves them as grotesque displays. 



Is Kiara a target of a serial killer or is the killer closer to home-and Aisha’s heart? 



Who is Kabir Rana? An elusive and moody fashion photographer burdened with a dark past or a murderer who got away? 



How will Aisha save Kiara from a killer who is several steps ahead of an entire city’s police force? When the dead come calling, will Aisha answer? 



From the bustling streets of Goa to the beautiful palaces of Sirsa, Killer Moves is a fast-paced, gripping, romantic suspense tale with strong thriller and supernatural elements.

Book Blitz: Finding Her Way-An Indian Girl’s Dilemma by Ruchi Vasudeva

It’s been a while since I read something by Ruchi (not because she wasn’t writing, but because I wasn’t reading!). But am I not glad to bring this wonderful author back to my TBR with a book on such a strong and relevant subject.

Getting married in India is huge. Bigger than that is all the hoopla surrounding the whole process that goes into finding that ‘perfect’ and ‘right’ boy/girl. Somebody had to talk about how complicated and unromantic society, with its weird rules and benchmarks for judging people, makes this process. And I am glad Ruchi is doing the talking and my favorite people, The Book Club, are promoting this.

Here is the first look of the book, the blurb, and more about the author! At just 16 pages in length, you cannot be missing this one, seriously! 

Book Blitz: Finding Her Way - An Indian Girl's dilemma by Ruchi Vasudeva

Genre: Short Story 

 

 

What does marriage mean for an Indian girl? Whether she marries for love or by arrangement, she’s forced to obey unreasonable demands. But she also wants to live her life on her own terms.

Avni is such a girl. When the man she loves and cares for wholeheartedly, throws her a curve ball, she chooses to walk away. What comes next for Avni?

 
 
It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR


About Ruchi Vasudeva in her own words:
 
I’m a doctor by profession, a teacher by vocation and an author by destiny. The writing bug has long resided in me and a contest held by Harlequin for Indian authors gave me a golden opportunity to have my dream realized. I debuted in August ’13 with my book ‘Bollywood Fiancé For A Day’. I write romantic fiction with conflicted characters who come into their own in their quest of reaching out for love. I love to write about spirited heroines getting hurtled out of their daily life as soon as they cross paths with their rather challenging heroes. 
 
I keep busy juggling writing with my medical job and family life with my doctor husband and two wiser-than-thou teens. When not bent double over the laptop, I might be found with my nose in books or munching nachos at the movies or glued to the telecast of Team India or Chennai Super Kings in action. Sometimes I drag myself for walks and surprisingly discover they are rather good for brewing story ideas!

Book Blitz: My Singapore Fling by Sudeshna Ghosh

When I read Just Me, The Sink & The Pot by Sudesna Ghosh, I really admired her clarity of thought and the way she understood and articulated things that are difficult to express for most. So when The Book Club announced that they were doing a book blitz and review tour for her next, I knew I’d be doing at least one of these.

So here’s the book blitz for Sudesna’s next, My Singapore Fling!

Blurb
 
Meet Dipa Basu. She’s a 30 something modern Bengali woman living in Kolkata and a successful writer. After many relationships and breakups, she’s decided that love is a waste of time. She’s always had these phases where she’s been obsessed with different things; like one where old men in dhotis appealed to her. But this time she’s crazy about men with British and Australian accents. She travels to Singapore for a few days, on a quest to have a fun, meaningless fling. Her trip is full of surprises. Will Dipa have her Singapore Fling?
 
Read an excerpt:
 
I woke up as the plane landed with that comforting thud. I grew up with that thud. It’s a welcome – and a reminder that a long hot shower isn’t too far away. So I grabbed my suitcase with crazy anticipation in my system because this trip was all about a good change. It was my chance to set things right in my boring 30 something year old life. Romantic love was overrated. I’d had enough of that crap. Time for some unemotional fun. The girls had attempted to analyse me saying, “Dipa, you are sensitive, emotional, and all about feelings. Are you sure about a fling?” I was sure. Sure I cried during most movies. Yeah, I couldn’t stand animal cruelty or injustice to the poor. But this was meant to happen.

Book Blitz: Prem Purana by Usha Narayanan

Doing a book blitz after the longest time! And this time, it is for an author whose work I love to read. The amount of research she puts into her work is what makes her books not just detailed but fun to read too! Who would have thought of Ravan and Mandodari when it came to love stories, otherwise?!

Congratulations on this one Usha and a big shout out to my favorite book people, The Book Club 🙂

 

Book Blitz by The Book Club of PREM PURANA by Usha Narayanan

 

Book Blitz by The Book Club of PREM PURANA by Usha Narayanan
Print Length: 272 pages
Publisher: Penguin Random House India
Publication Date: September 18, 2017
Language: English
Genre: Romance

 

 

No one is untouched by love, not even devas and asuras, kings and nymphs. And when they face life’s unexpected tribulations, their love also undergoes trials. Read how Ganesha took myriad forms to please Riddhi, Siddhi and Buddhi, how Ravana shared an unbreakable bond with his true love, Mandodari and how Nala and Damayanti’s relationship was tested till almost nothing remained.

Tormented by passion, wracked by betrayal, torn by the agony of separation, love in its many splendored forms is the origin of these incredibly endearing stories of Prem Purana.

It would be great if you can add this book to your TBR; I’ve already added it to mine!


Usha Narayanan had a successful career in advertising, media and corporate communications before becoming a full-time author. She has written several books, including ‘The Madras Mangler’, a suspense thriller, and ‘Love, Lies and Layoffs’, a Harlequin romcom. Her latest is ‘The Secret of God’s Son’, the sequel to her bestselling book,’Pradyumna: Son of Krishna’, both published by Penguin.
When she’s not juggling travelling, writing and interviews, Usha reads everything from thrillers to romances, provided her cat isn’t fast asleep on her Kindle.
