I'm not sure if Michelle Smart has a fan group, but I would happily become one of her 'Smarties', 'Smarty Pants?'. I seem unable to resist anything this author writes, so here I am with a review of Claiming His One-Night Baby.
Seeing Natasha Pellegrini at her husband's funeral propels Matteo Manaserro back to a time before she shattered his trust. Caught in a potent mix of emotion, they surrender to their explosive passion...
Unable to share the truth about her passionless marriage, Natasha is a virgin until Matteo's touch brands her as his.
When Matteo discovers Natasha is pregnant, he knows they must present a united front. He may never trust her, but he's intent on claiming his baby. Except he hasn't bargained on their insatiable chemistry binding them together so completely!
Debut day! It's my absolute pleasure to introduce you to Winning Ace, by debut author, Tracey Delaney. A books release day is always a special moment but when it's your debut, it's a moment to savour. Congratulations, Tracie! Enjoy your publication day.
A journalist desperate for a story
A tennis star who loathes the media

When the opportunity arises for journalist Tally McKenzie to meet tennis ace Cash Gallagher, she grabs it without hesitation. Desperate for a killer story to advance her career, she’ll have to betray her idol and her own morals into the bargain if she is to succeed.

Advice is the most precious tool in a writers tool kit. Not only that, we are a nosey lot and love a peek into someone else's writing process, just in case they've found that magic key to perfection. So welcome to my blog, author Rachel Brimble.
The highs & lows of being a writer and working around a family…by Rachel Brimble
As a full-time writer, I am one of the lucky ones. I am married with two teenage daughters and also mum to our mad chocolate Lab, Tyler. If I had to work out of the home, eke out time to write, and manage the house and kids, I would have most certainly given up my dream of writing books for a living by now.
Having said that, as I am able to write full-time around my family, the only way it is possible is to be dedicated and committed to the opportunity. I don’t take my position lightly and appreciate it every day by treating my work the same way I would if I had to work outside of the home.
I am at my desk by 8.30am and worked through until 5.30pm (with two dog walks i...
Happy bookiversary to me! Today marks three years since Daring to Wish, my debut book, was released into the world. Just as September is the month you release your children into their new class, school, college, or university, Sept 13th 2013 was the day I said farewell to my book baby and put it into the hands of others.
I say book baby because regardless of the books I've had published subsequently, Daring to Wish will always be my favourite. Did it hit the bestsellers list? Nope. Did I burst into the authorly world and leave a dent? No, it was with a whimper and I didn't so much as leave a smudge. BUT - I enjoyed every second and every word of it. Why? Because I wrote without walls and without boundaries.
I've often referred to Daring to Wish as my 'save me' book because it did. It gave me purpose again, at a time when I was at a loss, when ill health forced me to quit work. I was an active person, an active parent and was towards the end of my studies. I'd always worked and felt I ha...
Melanie Hunt’s job working for the Delta racing team means she is constantly rubbing shoulders with Formula One superstars in glamorous locations like Monte Carlo. But she has already learned that keeping a professional distance is crucial if she doesn’t want to get hurt.
New Delta team driver Aiden Foster lives his life like he drives his cars – fast and hard. But, no matter how successful he is, it seems he always falls short of his championship-winning father’s legacy. If he could just stay focused, he could finally make that win.
Resolve begins to slip as Melanie and Aiden find themselves drawn to each other –with nowhere to hide as racing season begins. But when a troubled young boy goes missing, everything is thrown into turmoil, including Aiden’s championship dream.
Four women, linked by blood ties, friendship, betrayal, loss and hope, struggle with the choices they’ve made and the hand that life’s dealt them.
All Pippa’s ever wanted is marriage and kids, but at thirty-four and about to embark on IVF, her dream of having a family is far from certain. Her younger sister Georgie has the opposite problem, juggling her career, her lover, a young daughter and a husband who wants baby number two.
Pippa’s best friend Sienna has a successful career in the film world, and despite her boyfriend pressurising her to settle down, a baby is the last thing she wants. Happily married Connie shares the trauma of fertility treatment with Pippa, but underestimates the impact being unable to conceive will have on her and her marriage.
As their lives collide in a way they could never have predicted, will any of them g...
Today I'm spoiling you. Not one, but two, marvellous medicals from Wendy S. Marcus!
Forget those medical romances you stole from your gran, medicals are now so much more than doctors and nurses playing at, well, doctors and nurses. Try one and see. And you can't go wrong with starting with one of this authors. Wendy S. Marcus always offers up something different. As you'll get a hint of from my review.
#1 The Doctor She Always Dreamed Of
Dare she dream of forever?
Nurse Kira Peniglatt isn’t in the market for a happy-ever-after. Between her busy job and caring for her sick mother, she’s learned the hard way that she comes with too much baggage for most men to handle.
Except Dr. Derrick Limone isn’t most men—he’s caring, funny, outrageously sexy…and he understands that she comes as a package deal. One sizzling kiss from Derrick later, and suddenly Kira hopes… Has she finally found the man she’s always dreamed of?
Halle Best, TV's Domestic Diva, is proud of everything she's achieved.
Halle took her passion for baking and built her media empire alone after her ex Luke walked out on her sixteen years ago, leaving her a single mum to their two-year-old daughter Lizzie in a dingy flat in Hackney.
Now a bona fide celebrity success, she only speaks to Luke via her lawyer. But as he is threatening to write a tell-all book exposing some of Halle's deepest secrets, keeping him at arm's length won't be so easy anymore.
When Luke suggests a getaway to work through their past, Halle thinks he's crazy; if they can survive two weeks together it will be a miracle.
Yet reconnecting with her past, could be the only way to start her future.
I couldn't resist reviewing this book, after all Heidi Rice is one of my favourite authors and one who inspired me to write. My only problem with Heidi's books are that I always find the end comes too soon (only because I can't put them dow...
Hello and welcome to my first review in my new home! And what a way to begin, with Blood Instinct, book 6 in my favourite paranormal series, Blackthorn. I seriously could not wait to get my hands on the next instalment by British author, Lindsay J. Pryor. Anyone who knows me will know how much I fan-girl over both this series and the author. Both are amazing! And the wait was more than worth it. Here's why...
