About R.C. Stephens

As far back as R.C. Stephens can remember she was a sucker for a good romance. Of course there had to be a prince charming even if he ultimately was a dark knight and there had to be a happy ending. She watched the movie Dirty Dancing way too many times growing up and Jean Claude Van Damme movies too. Go figure! After years of saying she would write a book one day, she finally put pen to paper and carved out the plot line for what would eventually become the best selling Twisted Series. Now R.C. is just finishing up her tenth book and can’t seem to stop the stories running through her mind. Visit R.C. on her Facebook page to find out what’s new in her life and what releases she has coming up.

Big Stick (Big Stick #1) by R.C. Stephens Review

Big StickBig Stick by R.C. Stephens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

R.C. Stephens scores with BIG STICK. As kids, Myles Sanders and twin brother and sister Oliver and Flynn Russell were inseparable. After moving to different cites, Myles and Flynn had a falling out. Seven years later, Myles and Oli are still best friends living their dream of playing professional hockey together in Chicago. Flynn relocates to Chicago to be near her brother; consequently, needing to resolve the issues she has with Myles. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

I loved R.C. Stephens’ BIG STICK. Being a Chicagoan, I appreciate that the story takes place there. I also respected that Myles and Oli played for my favorite team the Blackhawks. I like Myles, Oli, and Flynn. They are realistic and convincing characters. A tragedy caused some unresolved issues for them. Myles had a tough childhood and relied on the Russell family for support. Flynn believed in Myles and is a big part of the reason he is as successful as he is. Myles and Flynn have amazing chemistry. You truly want to see them work things out.

BIG STICK is a heartfelt and enjoyable read. The story was believable and skillfully-executed. The hockey scenes were easy to visualize and credible. I like the Peter Pan nick names. The Epilogue felt well concluded. This is the first book that I have read by R.C. Stephens. I enjoyed her writing style and plan on continue following the Big Stick series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Sidewinders Box Set, Vol 2 by Kat Mizera



The Sidewinders Box Set, Vol 2 by Kat Mizera is NOW LIVE!!! Only 99c for a limited time - for FOUR BOOKS!


Kobo -- http://bit.ly/2PLeeDi iBooks -- coming soon!

BOXED SET INCLUDES: 

Anatoli Zakk Toli & Tessa Rob (only previously published in an anthology!) Anatoli Anatoli “Toli” Petrov is at the height of his career—and unexpectedly single--after earning a spot on a new NHL expansion team in Las Vegas. But navigating the dating world is a totally foreign experience for the sexy Russian hockey player. Tessa Barber is also suddenly single after her husband blindsides her with divorce papers. A spur-of-the moment trip to Las Vegas is just the thing she needs to take her mind off her troubles. When an awkward encounter in a bar leads Toli and Tessa into a week of genuine passion, things become more complicated than they ever imagined. Keeping score has never been such a dangerous game! Zakk Zakk Cloutier is young, hot, and likes the ladies that are drawn to his bad boy image. The problem is that none of them make his heart race the way the tall, redheaded widow of his late coach does. She’s the one woman he’d consider settling down for. Tiffany Marcus feels like her life is crumbling around her. A widow with two young children, she wants to find some semblance of sanity again. Focusing on her three-year old twins leaves little time or energy to deal with the aching loneliness after her husband’s sudden death. So she’s shocked when she starts to feel alive again–thanks to the helping hand and broad shoulder of one of the Las Vegas Sidewinders. Skating on thin ice takes on new meaning when the past catches up to them. With more than just love on the line, Zakk has to make an impossible choice: Step in and be the man Tiff needs him to be, or let her go to save himself. Toli & Tessa After a whirlwind romance, Las Vegas Sidewinders forward Anatoli Petrov is about to make Tessa Barber his wife… or is he? When someone with an axe to grind shows up and wreaks havoc on their special day, events unfold that make the love of his life wonder if he’s the man she thought he was. From the bright lights of Las Vegas to the cold streets of Moscow, Toli and Tessa become embroiled in a complex and terrifying web of deceit. Tessa isn't sure who to trust - including the man she loves. Toli doesn’t know what’s going on with Tessa, but before he can fix things with her, he has to figure out how to keep the situation in Russia under control. Will they be able to figure out the truth or is it a game misconduct for them both? Rob Mackenzie Riser is one of the top plastic surgeons in the U.S. and has a wonderful, fulfilling career in Chicago. As she counts down to her 50th birthday, she realizes she needs more than work to satisfy her. 37-year-old Rob Rousseau is devastated with the news his 16-year-old daughter has breast cancer. As he struggles to help her come to terms with losing her breasts, the new plastic surgeon is the first woman since his divorce to make his heart beat a little faster. As Rob and Mack navigate unfamiliar territory, there's one little thing that might come between them--something they never expected. Do people ever really get second chances? 

 

About the Author: 

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast. Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach. Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles. As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

Blood Crescent by S.M. McCoy: Giveaway

Blood Crescent
by 
S.M. McCoy
Genre: YA Fantasy Paranormal
Release Date: September 21st 2018

Summary:

While investigating her mother’s disappearance Crystal’s bloodline leads a supernatural council to hunt her down for her latent magic. Love, lies, and long buried secrets change her life forever.

Sixteen-year-old Crystal Dylan has been marked by the waning crescent due to her latent diviner heritage. The magic from her is a beacon to any nearby supernatural beings, especially energy serpents, vampires sent by the Divine Council to capture her. She never believed in the strange, the superstitious, or magical until she started looking for her long-thought-dead mother. Too many attacks on her aura have left her drained, dying, and vulnerable leaving Victor no choice but to try anything to help her, even the serpent’s kiss.

The Divine Council was looking for the lost heir, and Damien, a drawn class serpent, was their retrieval system with an agenda of his own. Crystal’s memories are being manipulated, and she struggles to find the truth about who she loves, what happened to her mother, who she is, and how to stay alive long enough to figure it all out.





Special Promotional Excerpt:

The below I think is a fun moment between Crystal and her best friend Victor while she struggles between wanting to have more than friendship and keeping things the same. All this is happening in the middle of her losing her memories, and being delved into the supernatural world of energy vampires, shadows, and witches.

Special sneak peek of the book only available for the blog tour: 



“Victor…” He was talking nonsense about names and not remembering things, and all the intensity in his voice made me stop before I could say something stupid about how none of what he was saying made any sense…nonsense. And yet…my heart ached. It pulled at something inside me, like I was reaching for something lost myself. Like I had forgotten something important. 
“I wanted to give you a gift worthy of such a gift as you’ve given me.” He turned back toward me and his eyes seemed to flicker like a sunset of colors reflected off them for merely a millisecond. I could see the universe swirl. I touched my neck and the pulse shook me from my daze. 
“No,” I mouthed. I’d gone and done it…couldn’t help myself, but to stick my foot straight up and in. It felt so strong that I knew what he was going to say already and I couldn’t bear for us to change. Not yet. And I knew he was going to tell me something life shattering. 
He looked mischievous and full of a confidence that I didn’t feel myself. If I were standing I wouldn’t be for long, as it was my legs were tingling in the process of being numb dead weight. Victor slid closer, lemon icing still lingering on his breath from taste testing his baking. My own mouth watered. I had to gulp to keep my lips from parting in anticipation of tasting him, hungry. He leaned back and handed me the lemon cupcake.  
I absently accepted the offering. It sat heavy in my hands. 
“Enjoy your cupcake.” The words rolled off like from a silver-tongued monster with gorgeous lips. 
My eyes widened, and I couldn’t help but wonder what his game was? Enjoy MY CUPCAKE?! My lips ached, and the pit of my stomach sank into my toes, flaming acid burning through my whole body, ready to scream. 
I shouldn’t have said no, maybe I shouldn’t have said no? No…I needed to say no—this was better this way. I didn’t need to know what he was going to tell me, did I?

Big Stick by Kelly Jamieson Cover Reveal

Big Stick by Kelly Jamieson is coming soon on October 23rd!


A brooding hockey hunk learns to embrace life—and love—from a single mom who takes the world one puck at a time.

“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—USA Today bestselling author Jami Davenport

Big move . . . Jodie’s motto is “Don’t wait for the perfect moment—take the moment and make it perfect.” And that’s just what she decides to do when she moves to Chicago with her two-year-old daughter. Now all Jodie needs is a place to live, and her best friend’s boyfriend has just the answer.

Big stick . . . Nick Balachov has zero interest in socializing, partying, or flirting right now. It’s not that he doesn’t like women. He loves them. It’s just that hockey, casual hookups, and hanging out at home are enough for him these days. Now Nick has a big problem—because the woman living in his empty coach house is a major distraction.

Big deal? The more Nick tries to keep his distance, the more Jodie needs him—around the house, that is. First he helps with the snowstorm, then the power outage. Nick even finds himself trying to impress her little girl. What the hell is wrong with him? Jodie represents everything Nick doesn’t want. But maybe she’s just what he needs. . . .
