First, if we were meeting at a coffee shop I’d be drinking a Latte 🙂 What would you order? I’d order a cafe mocha please. I do adore my chocolate!
I have read your Marriage to a Billionaire series and thought it was great. I know you have a spinoff and I look forward to reading that too! Congrats on your newest novella, Searching for You in the Baby, It’s Cold Outside Collection! Thanks again for stopping by and taking the time to chat!
8 Tantalizing Tidbits
1. A MUST read book and why? The art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
It’s my all time favorite book. I’m a HUGE animal lover and this is written in the
POV of a dog named Enzo. It’s a book I always think about,
2. What is one place that I should see if I visit your hometown? Hmm, we’re close to Manhattan here but I’d show you the gorgeous Mohonk Mountain House, with acres of gorgeous land, mountains, and a lake that will take your breath away. We’ll do some hiking, boating, and then feast on a gourmet lunch at the inn!
3. Castles or Beaches? Beaches always.
4. Hard Rock or Classical? Favorite Band? Hard Rock. But I love all genres of music
like books. My fave band is Matchbox 20 and Maroon 5.
5. If you had an all expenses paid trip anywhere in the world for research, where would
you go? Always one place I’d visit over and over. Italy.
6. What are you afraid of? Big fat hairy spiders. Oh, God, just thinking about them
makes me cringe.
7. Tats or no Tats? If tats, how many and why did you choose the first one? Yes! I got
one for my thirtieth birthday to celebrate!
8. What’s your favorite TV show and why? The Bachelor/Bachelorette. Don’t judge me. It’s trashy, dramatic, romantic, and exciting. And the men are hot.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Close to the Fire (Westen Series, Book 3) by Suzanne Ferrell is a suspense filled romance that will leave you guessing right up till the last page. We all know that firemen are sexy and this book is no exception. Fire Chief Deacon “Deke” Reynolds is a force to be reckoned with. He had it all until a devastating fire ten years ago took the life of his best friend who also happened to be his girlfriend’s brother. Elizabeth “Libby” Wilson lost more than her brother that night as her boyfriend severed all ties with her. Without any answers she was left to deal with a horrible situation alone. Deke pushed her away without looking back and they both suffered. If only they could forgive themselves and each other.
While things are looking up for Deke, he’s still got problems. But, since that horrible night Deke runs from his emotions. Now he’s reached a cliff and must make a choice. If he continues to move forward the way he’s done for the past ten years he will fall off the cliff and never allow anyone to get close. What will it take for him to stop running away and open up? With the support of his friends and the town, he’s still protecting against fires while working at the local High School coaching Football.
Libby still can’t face her ex-boyfriend without old feelings resurfacing. The dance they do to deny their feelings needs a little push. With the help of Lola, the owner of the local town diner she lets him have it. It’s time for Deke to be honest with himself and Libby. Will that push be enough to help him get past that horrific night? Will the pain and nightmares finally end?
Unfortunately, the mysterious fires popping up all over town after the arrival of a teenager at a juvenile shelter for troubled kids aren’t helping Deke deal with his issues. Will he have the courage to find the answers to that fateful night? The past comes full circle as both Deke and Libby face their fears and answer everyone’s question, will they or won’t they?
This sexy, on-the-edge of my seat book is a must read. From start to finish I loved this book! Usually I read a series from the beginning. This time I jumped in at Book 3 because this copy was given to me for an honest review. I enjoyed it so much that I snatched up a kindle copy of Book 1 for free and purchased Book 2. I need to find out what happened that led up to this book! Well done Suzanne Ferrell you have a new follower and fan!
Suzanne discovered romance novels in her aunt’s hidden stash one summer as a teenager. From that moment on she knew two things: she loved romance stories and someday she’d be writing her own. Her love for romances has only grown over the years. It took her a number of years and a secondary career as a nurse to finally start writing her own stories.
Currently there are two main series she’s actively writing in: The Westen Series, a contemporary small town series based in a fictional Ohio town where “things aren’t always what they seem”, and features Close To Home, Close To The Edge and Close To The Fire. The second series is the Romantic Suspense books KIDNAPPED, HUNTED, SEIZED and VANISHED, featuring the Edgars family as they fight for justice, even if it means stepping slightly outside the rulebook.
KIDNAPPED and HUNTED were both Golden Heart finalist, and SEIZED, book #3 in the Edgars Family Novels, was a finalist in the novella category of the OKRWA’s National Reader’s Choice Awards contest.
Suzanne’s sexy stories, whether they be her on the edge of your seat romantic suspense or the small town romantic suspense stories they’ll keep you thinking about her characters long after their Happy Ever After is achieved.
You can Find Suz at:
A Jewel In Time: A Sultry Sisters Anthology is magical, charming and will leave you begging for more from these amazing authors! This collection is a must have and the price is fantastic!
The cover alone is breathtaking and screams – READ ME NOW! I just LOVE the jewels!

Loving Lieutenant Douglas by Barbara Devlin
It is the Age of Sail and First Lieutenant Mark Douglas of the Royal Navy has set his sights on a fiery society miss with a spirit to match his own. What happens when Lady Amanda Gasciogne-Lake’s father rejects the sailor’s suit, and an ancient brooch with mystical power portends doom?
Bestselling author Barbara Devlin was born a storyteller. A Texan, through and through, Barbara hasn’t been without a book in her possession since she was in kindergarten. She wrote her first short story, a really cheesy murder-mystery, in high school, but it was a Christmas gift, a lovely little diary with a bronze lock, given to her in the fifth grade that truly inspired her love of writing.
After completing part of her undergraduate studies at the University of London, where she developed a love of all things British, Barbara returned home and began a career in banking. But the late 80s weren’t too promising for the financial industry, and every bank that hired Barbara soon folded. So she searched for a stable occupation, and the local police department offered the answer to her prayers.
Initially, Barbara wasn’t too sure about her new career in law enforcement, but she soon came to love being a police officer. And then one uncharacteristically cold and icy day in December 1998, Barbara was struck by a car and pinned against a guardrail while working an accident on a major highway. Permanently disabled, she retired from the police department and devoted her time and energy to physical therapy.
Once Barbara got back on her feet, she focused on a new career in academia. She earned an MA in English and continued a course of study for a Doctorate in Literature and Rhetoric. She happily considered herself an exceedingly eccentric English professor, until success in Indie publishing lured her into writing, full-time, featuring her fictional knighthood, the Brethren of the Coast.
Behind Enemy Lines by Jeanne Adams
In WWII Europe, Lady Grace Corvedale flees Paris as the Germans approach, but Hitler has learned her brooch may have mystical powers, and he vows to possess it—at any cost. Lt. Robert “Dix” Dixon, an unofficial attache to the British Embassy, is dispatched to rescue her but can he outwit The Fuhrer to Save Grace?
Although Jeanne Adams likes calling North Carolina home, she lives in DC, where The Tentacle Affaire is set, and often jogs on the C&O towpath with her dogs. Her favorite holiday is Halloween. She starts planning the annual yard decor on November 1. Alas, in this case however, the
“Adams Family” – one husband, two sons and three dogs – is all bark and no bite.
On another spooky note, Jeanne used to work in the funeral and cemetery business, and knows a thing or two about getting rid of the body….bwhahahah! (She even teaches classes about it to other writers!)
Jeanne has written Romantic Suspense for Kensington/Zebra Publishing since 2007. Her first Urban Fantasy, The Tentacle Affaire, came out September 2014. Two holiday novellas are now available as well, the novella in JEWEL IN TIME, and a short Thanksgiving themed Romantic Suspense novella, Deadly Delivery.

The Brit, the Brooch, and the Blizzard by Caitlenn T. Ainnsley
When a series of tragic events leaves Olivia DuBois stranded in Boston during a blizzard, a handsome Brit rides to her rescue, and the California girl falls hard. Emerson Glascoigne-Lake manifests the quintessential knight in shining armor, but does a family heirloom fortell true love or destroy it?
Caitlenn T. Ainnsley
Chick Lit Author
Caitlenn writes edgy, sexy chick lit stories about fabulous women, hot men and the often crazy situations they encounter on the road to love.
She won her first creative writing contest in the sixth grade and has always found pleasure weaving stories.
A big fan of Harlequin’s Intrigue series, her first novel was a romantic suspense. Its rejection was a blessing because it challenged Caitlenn to explore other genres. When she scribbled a single scene to enter in a Romance Writer’s of America editor’s critique and all three editors said they wanted more from her, she knew she’d found her voice in chick lit.
The Brit, The Brooch, and The Blizzard is her debut novella.
Caitlenn is a pen name for Leah Grant. Leah is a Business, Life and Spiritual Coach having a diverse set of skills as a Master Certified Coach, a Certified NLP Practitioner, a Certified Emotional Intelligence Practitioner and an Ordained Minister. Leah Grant speaks, teaches and is a published best-selling non-fiction author.
