Destination undisclosed. No Paparazzi. No harassing media or hovering drones. Finally, Connor and Carson get Breezy all to themselves on the honeymoon of a lifetime and they aren’t about to let a moment go to waste.

Author Note: Rock Star Cowboys: The Honeymoon is a romantic, ten thousand word lavishly sexy epilogue to Rock Star Cowboys and, due to potential spoilers, should not be read as a standalone. Rock Star Cowboys should be read first to fully appreciate this story.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14Tbird_s ThoughtsTAG

A very quick read that was meant to mainly give us a few more pages of Carson, Connor and Breezy.  There wasn’t much of a story line, nor any substance to this book but the author took us on their honeymoon to Belize.

Believe…

But Rebecca has a secret too, one she fears Sean will never accept. It will take intervention from an unlikely source to convince these two lovers they have the one thing neither of them ever expected to find…a love to believe.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14Tbird_s ThoughtsTAG

Far From Home

DisclaimerFemaleTAG

My name is Rachel. I’m straight . . . I think. I also have a mountain of student loans and a smart mouth. I wasn’t serious when I told Pari Sadashiv I’d marry her. It was only party banter! Except Pari needs a green card, and she’s willing to give me a breather from drowning in debt.

My off-the-cuff idea might not be so terrible. We get along as friends. She’s really romantically cautious, which I find heartbreaking. She deserves someone to laugh with. She’s kind. And calm. And gorgeous. A couple of years with her actually sounds pretty good. If some of Pari’s kindness and calmness rubs off on me, that’d be a bonus, because I’m a mess — anorexia is not a pretty word — and my little ways of keeping control of myself, of the world, aren’t working anymore.

And, if I slip up, Pari will see … [Read More ...]
