Stroke of  Luck

Jenna Byrnes

Buylink

Back Cover Blurb

Ninety-seven millions dollars is more money than Steven DeLong can even imagine. When he realises he’s won the lottery, he knows he needs advice from a professional, and fast. He calls on an accountant recommended by his brother, unaware the man is the sexiest hunk Steven has ever laid eyes, or anything else, on.

Paul Aspen seems excited by the prospect of helping Steven with his money, and even more excited to get the naïve bartender into bed. When both men come up for air, Steven’s left wondering if Paul is more interested in him or the lottery winnings. In the end, he’s forced to decide whether love or money rules his heart.

Author: Victoria Roder

Back Cover Blurb

With a Ruger Blackhawk .357 under her pillow, a Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker rifle in her broom closet, and a Saturday Night Special in her road-hog cookie jar, Detective Leslie Bolt’s sarcastic attitude and inability to trust, alienates her from most people. Forced to work a serial murder case with her ex-lover, she begins a budding romance with the department’s new medical examiner, but which man will she choose?

"The State Quarter Killer” is selecting victims that appear to have nothing in common except for the State Quarter placed under their lifeless bodies. When her sister goes missing the question rises, will Detective Bolt capture the serial killer before her sister is the next victim?

Stone House Farm

Author: Rhodin L. Courtright

Buylink

Back Cover Blurb

Amanda Blanchard’s ex-husband caused her present predicament—cash-poor except for her centennial family farm. Property taxes are overdue but she has a good job, and she has a mare pregnant with a foal whose sale will pay those taxes. To sell the last of her father’s prize Morgan horses seems unimaginable, but she must secure her home to raise her daughter, Kari.

Land developer Wade Preston sends her a letter threatening foreclosure if she doesn’t sell him her land. In a face-to-face confrontation she tells Wade she will not sell, but their paths cross again when she finds him in her orchard, shot. A storm has knocked out the old farmhouse’s electricity and phone. She needs to save Wade’s life, but will whoever shot him try to finish the job? Will whoever wounded him harm her and Kari, too?

Hey EH,
That first one, the fantasy anthology sounds interesting. That's a well rounded list of new books for your TBR!

Hey Amy..

I do try to mix up my reading as much as possible, as I find I get easily bored sticking with one or two genre..

Happy reading my dear..

Stroke of Luck sounds interesting. I read If I Were a Lady in December - here's my reviewette: "Ack! Editing! Editing! Editing! Please, by all that is holy, recognize that it’s not optional, especially for a story with potential. This is the first m/m romance I’ve read with a transgendered main character."

Lily on 4 May 2010 at 15:19 said...

Interesting selection of books. Enjoy your reading!

Lea on 4 May 2010 at 16:26 said...

Nice selection EH... I especially like the sound of Bolt Action and Lust Bites. I will say though I think the cover for Lust Bites may be in contention for one of Chris's "Stock Photography" posts. lol...

Thanks for sharing and enjoy!
