The Heart Doesn't Lie

Blind Faith

The Sin Brothers series 3

by Rebecca Zanetti

a Military Romance
from Forever Publishing
 

NOW IN PRINT!

**Can be read as a standalone**
Blurb
A betrayal he couldn't forget . . .
 
For Nate Dean, love is a four-letter word. As part of a secret black-ops military unit, he and his brothers were genetically engineered by the government to be ruthless soldiers with an expiration date. They were loyal only to one another . . . until Nate laid eyes on the woman who stole his heart and blew his world apart. Now, years later, his family is still paying the price for his mistake. But as time runs out, there's only one person who can save his family: the very woman Nate swore he'd never trust again.
 
A love she couldn't deny . . .
 
The moment Audrey Madison spies Nate across a crowded ballroom, she can barely breathe. He's just as undeniably sexy as she remembers, yet there's an edge to him now that's as irresistible as it is dangerous. When he asks for her help, Audrey can't refuse. But she has secrets of her own--secrets that, if Nate ever discovers them, may cost them both their lives . . .
 
Review by pearls
 
One of my favorite parts of a Rebecca Zanetti novel is her ability to create a scene that you can visualize.  The opening scene of Blind Faith is like a scene straight out of a movie, as the spies make their moves and their countermoves.  I also love how intensely her characters' emotions run, whether it's the horror of an explosion or the pain of betrayal or the bonds of brotherhood.  This is not a simple blast from the past reunion story.  The characters have to work at regaining trust, trust in one another and in their love, and the author allows the time for this to build.  But as the outside forces come crashing in, they rally around one another as a tight cohesive unit.  In Jurassic Park, the quote is Life will find a way.  In this genetically altered group, Love and Family find a way, and I cannot get the young Dean boys from their flashbacks out of my mind.

FALLING FOR JILLIAN Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes the third romance in the Love Under the Big Sky series, featuring a veteran struggling with PTSD and the one woman who can help him recover—and learn to love again. Jillian thought she was a city girl through and through; the fast cars, high fashion, and glamour—she loves it all. But when her ex tells her he’s having a baby with his new wife (after Jillian struggled for years to get pregnant), she hightails it back to Montana to cry on the shoulder of her best friend, Cara. But in truth, Jillian would rather be comforted by someone else…specifically Zack, Cara’s brother-in-law. Zack is a veteran of the Iraq War who came back to the family ranch to raise his preteen son after the boy’s mother took off. He’s struggling to re-establish a relationship with his son, and warding off the demons of PTSD, which still haunt him. The last thing he needs is bold, brassy Jillian…but why can’t he keep his hands off her?

EXCERPT:
“Okay, plug them in.”

 I run to the porch and plug in the lights, then run back into the front yard to see them. “Oh, they’re so pretty!”

 “Thank God they all work,” he says as he tosses the black shoe down to the ground and then moves carefully down to the ladder. “It would be a bitch to have to take them back down.”

 “I checked them,” I assure him, and when his foot finally lands safely on the snow and he turns to me, I hit him on the arm. “You shouldn’t have done that! You took ten years off my life!” I throw my arms around his torso and squeeze him tightly, then back away.

“No, you shouldn’t have been on that ladder. If I catch you on one again, I’ll spank your ass until it glows.”

My jaw drops as I gaze up into his frustrated face. For once in my life, I’m speechless. I scowl as I pull myself together and clench my fists. “You wouldn’t dare . . .”

“Put yourself in danger again and see if I don’t,” he replies calmly and crosses his arms over his chest.

“Did you come here to bully me?”

He sighs and pulls his beanie off his head, pushing his fingers through the messy brown strands. I want to sink my fingers in that thick, dark hair.

“No. I came because you won’t answer your fucking phone so I can apologize for the other night.”

“I don’t want your apology,” I reply and throw the extra lights and staple gun back into the tote and turn away, but he catches my arm and turns me back to him, takes the tote, and sets it down.

“I’m going to give it anyway.” His jaw is firm. “I had no right to kiss you like that in the parking lot for everyone to see.”

I jerk back, mortified. “You’re apologizing for kissing me?”

And don’t forget to read the first book in the Love Under the Big Sky Series…

julia millsI am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters, a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the stories running through her brain.   I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked. I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy!   I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it.

A Love Worth Fighting For

THE REBEL OF COPPER CREEK
 
by R.C. Ryan
A Cowboy Romance with a Contemporary Military angle

Blurb
A love worth fighting for . . .
 
The last thing widow Juliet Grayson needs is a man in her life. Between caring for her two young sons and maintaining her husband's ranch, her hands are more than full. Then she meets Griff Warren. With his quiet strength and his easy way with her boys, she's tempted to trust him. But if there's anything she's learned, it's that love only leads to heartbreak.
 
Former Marine Griff Warren never thought he'd settle down. Rebellious and proud, he's always been on his own . . . until the father he never knew he had died, leaving him with land that is his legacy and brothers to share the load. He doesn't need more than that. But Juliet touches something deep inside him-and he wants nothing more than to protect her and her sons. Now if only he can convince her to take a second chance at true love.

Review by pearls
Griff may have been a rebel in his youth, but he has grown into the perfect man.  He's loyal, loves kids and animals, protective, helps out yet makes her feel like an equal. He's strong, brave, and passionate.  And he's one hot and sexy cowboy/military man.  The story also has a mystery to solve which holds many lives in the balance.  Juliet has a quiet healing touch that balances out all the testosterone.  One thing is for sure: Copper Creek is never a dull minute.

EXCERPT

She opened a second door to reveal a bathroom fit for a queen, with a tub and shower big enough for an army, a lovely oval sink and mirror, and all of it done in shades of white marble.

She turned to him with a look of alarm.  “Oh, Griff.  I don’t belong here.”

He merely smiled.  “Neither do I.   But I won’t tell if you don’t.”  His smile grew.  “I say we just kick back and enjoy all this until they discover we’re frauds.”

She tried to laugh, but it came out in a sigh. 

Before she could say more he touched a finger to her lips.  Just a touch, but they both looked stunned at his boldness.

He lowered his hand and took a step back.  “I’d better say goodnight and get out of here.”

“Wait.”  She caught his hand and held it tightly.  “Just stay a minute more.  I’m feeling overwhelmed.”

His smile was quick and charming.  “I’m feeling overwhelmed myself.  But it’s not the room, it’s the woman in it.”

“Don’t joke, Griff.”

His smile disappeared.  “It’s no joke.  And if I don’t leave you right now, I just might not make it out of here.”

He got as far as the door before turning to look at her.  That was his downfall.  In quick strides he crossed the room and grabbed her in a fierce embrace.

“I almost made it.”  The words were whispered against her temple as he began brushing hot, wet kisses down the side of her face until she turned her head slightly and his lips found hers.  “I know you told me you don’t like this.” His voice was a rough growl of desperation.

 “That’s what I said.  But right this minute I can’t tell you that, Griff.”  She clung to him.  “I need you hold me, just for a minute.”

“If I stay for a minute, it could turn into hours.  I may not be able to leave at all.  In fact, it’s already too late. I know what touching you does to me.”

And then he took the kiss deep, nearly devouring her. 

Her body was crushed against him, her heartbeat wildly matching his.  The feel of her ragged breath, her pounding pulse, added more fuel to the fire that raged through him.

“Wait, Griff.  I need a minute…”

Her words barely penetrated the fog that seemed to have taken over his control.

Instead of doing as she asked, he backed her across the room until they were stopped by the press of the wall against her back.  They barely noticed the bump of their bodies as they continued the kiss until they were nearly crawling inside each other’s skin.

He was so hot he could barely catch a breath.  Lifting his head, he breathed deeply before lowering his face to hers.  “I could stay the night.  I could…”

She lifted a hand to his mouth.  “Wait.  Stop.  I need to think.”

“I can’t think.  My brain…”  He sucked in air, hoping to clear his mind.

“We can’t do this.”  She put a hand to his chest.

“I know.  I know.”  He caught her hand in his.  “I’ll go.”

As he started to turn away she lifted herself on tip toe to brush his mouth with hers.  “I don’t want you to, but I know I need to send you away.”

He half-turned back to her.  “I don’t have to…”

“Yes.  No.”  She breathed deeply.  “Yes.  Go.”

His hands closed around her shoulders.  “Was that no?  Or go?”

She looked up at the same moment he looked down.  They bumped noses, then both burst into laughter.

They laughed so hard they clung together, shaking and laughing.

He pressed his forehead to hers and managed another shaky breath.  “Okay.  At least I know we’re both crazy.”  He held her a little away and stared deeply into her eyes before giving a groan.  “I’m going now.  Just…”  He backed away.  “…don’t touch me or I won’t make it.”

She stayed where she was, watching as he backed across the room.  Straightening his shoulders he turned and opened the door.  He stepped out and pulled it firmly shut behind him.

About the Book

Kane Jackson, the ruler of the fantasy section of Club X, has always been different from his brothers. The bastard son of Cassian March III, he grew up without the money and privilege Cassian and Stefan enjoyed from the March name, instead only knowing his father as the man who abandoned him and seeing himself as unloved and unwanted. He let love in once and like everything else in his life, all that came from it was pain. His heart hidden behind the walls he's built since then, Kane is now just the dark figure who rules over the fantasies of others but has none himself.
 
Abbi Linde can't seem to get a break. Too many bad men and bad choices have left her bruised and broken, but the opportunity to dance at Club X could change everything. For the first time, she might be able to make a life for herself and find the happiness she longs for. After what feels like a lifetime of heartbreak, Abbi still believes one day her dreams will come true and she'll find the love that's eluded her.
 
Even the darkest heart craves the light, but will the darkness be too much for love to overcome with these two souls?
