On one side, I am Leela Walsh: daughter, sister, employee at three minimum-wage jobs. I cook. Do laundry. Contribute to the debt my family is sinking in.
On the second side, I am Leela Walsh: Straight-A student, top graduate of my class, med student. No one knows of my brother’s sordid past. My sister’s poor decisions. Or that I’m the first in my family to graduate high school.
The balance between these two sides is nearly impossible to maintain. And it only becomes more difficult when I meet Wes McCleary.
He’s never had a job. Never wanted for anything. And now, he wants me.
There are a thousand reasons we shouldn’t be together, and just one that keeps bringing us together.

Security expert Beckett Tate has met his match in colleague Gia Sinclair. He’s given her time to get used to the idea of “them,” but her time is up and he’s ready to go all in on claiming what’s his. When someone attacks Gia's character and career they'll need to find a balance between her independence and his fierce desire to protect. Return to Rhenna Morgan's sexy Men of Haven series available 2018 from Carina Press!
Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by, taking what they want, always watching each other’s backs and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce.
Security expert Beckett Tate has met his match in colleague Gia Sinclair. He longs to run his hands over each and every one of her lush curves. She’s wicked smart and wicked hot. He’s given her time to get used to the idea of “them,” but her time is up and he’s ready to go all in on claiming what’s his.
Despite her love of all things girlie, Gia’s no typical Southern belle. She’s built her skills and reputation in a field normally dominated by men, and now she has a kick-ass career she loves. She certainly doesn’t need a man to take care of her—especially not one who’s pure alpha. Still, Beckett’s the one man who can satisfy the desires she’s hidden under her tough exterior, and she’s hooked.
Letting Beckett take the lead in the bedroom comes naturally to Gia—not constantly proving herself to him professionally is more of a struggle. And when someone attacks her character and career, Gia and Beckett will have to find a balance: her willingness to let go just a little, with his trust in her abilities and his deep, primal need to protect his woman.

Give me a kick-ass heroine any day of the week, folks. This was my favorite type of read. A strong woman that is attracted to a man that compliments her, not overpowers or coddles. Equal. Heavy subject matter with the plot line. I'm sure it's not a spoiler to say it center around human trafficking. Although its a tough storyline the connection and the chemistry between Mali and Raul is off the charts. What more can say other than Sexy, smart and captivating!
True heroes will do anything to protect the women they love...

Luckily, he's got the best friend and partner a man could ask for: a highly trained, fiercely loyal German Shepherd Dog named Taz. Together, Raul and Taz make an unbeatable team. But their first mission in Hawaii really puts them to the test when an international kidnapping ring sets its sights on the bravest woman Raul's ever met . . .
Mali knows her latest job has put one hell of a target on her back. And on this small island paradise, there's nowhere to hide. With a service dog like Taz, Mali feels safe. Sharing close quarters with a smoldering muscle-for-hire like Raul, she feels something else - an unexpected wave of desire. Raul feels it too. But when the kidnappers make their move, he's got to turn that slow-burning passion into hard-hitting action - and save the life of the woman he loves.

Sandpiper Shore, book 6 in the Harmony Harbor series,
by Debbie Mason will hit shelves on June 26, 2018.
Too many to choose from, so I’ll go with the one I’m currently reading—Beach House Reunion by Mary Alice Monroe. I’ve just started but so far I’m loving it as much as I do all of her books.
Is there a subgenre or trope that you have never written but would like to?
Yes. I have a half-written young adult novel in my desk drawer that I’d like to complete, and I have an idea for a romantic suspense series I’ve been wanting to write for years.
What is your all-time favorite summer tune?
I’m sure you’re not surprised that I can’t pick just one. “Summer Breeze” by Seals and Crofts, “Summer Nights” by John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, “Summer of 69” by Bryan Adams, and “Come Sail Away” by Styx.
What is your best summer memory?
I’ll let you in on a secret, my wedding isn’t my favorite or best summer memory. Shocking, I know. But the man I married that day is the reason I have so many wonderful summer memories to choose from. My favorites include us and our three kids, and now their significant others and the grandkids.
If you could choose a vacation destination for the couple in your new book, where would it be and why?
Provence. Because I want to go with them and Logan knows the area. He was stationed in France for several years.

It’s not your everyday second-chance romance. It’s more like destiny personified. I lost myself in the pages filled by Mia Sheridan. A romantical fantasy with good and evil, light and dark, tragedy and triumph. Utter book loving perfection.
We also get a bonus romance-within-a-romance that made my book loving heart soar. I want to talk and discuss it, but in all honesty, I am so frightened of giving something away that I dare not even begin to talk plotlines and synopsis. Just know this: It is book candy at its most decadent. A sweet and thoughtful read sure to make fans of Sheridan move this to the top of their favorites list.
No one lays open the heart and soul quite like New York Timesbestselling author Mia Sheridan.
The moment she met Callen Hayes, eleven-year-old Jessica Creswell knew he was a broken prince. Her prince. They became each other's refuge, a safe and magical place far from their troubled lives. Until the day Callen kissed her--Jessica's first real, dreamy kiss—and then disappeared from her life without a word.
Years later, everyone knows who Callen Hayes is. Famous composer. Infamous bad boy. What no one knows is that Callen's music is now locked deep inside, trapped behind his own inner demons. It's only when he withdraws to France to drink his way through the darkness that Callen stumbles into the one person who makes the music return. Jessica. His Jessie. And she still tastes of fresh, sweet innocence . . . even as she sets his blood on fire.
But they don't belong in each other's worlds anymore. There are too many mistakes. Too many secrets. Too many lies. All they have is that instinctive longing, that need—and something that looks dangerously like love.
