A Charm Like You

Charmed in Texas series

Blurb: Even in a quirky small town like Charmed, Texas, there’s always room for love to take you by surprise . . . 

Gabi Graham might have hit the proverbial rock in rock-bottom. Hitting the single scene after ten years is hard enough. Finding out that her cheating ex-husband and his new barely-legal fiancée are expecting—that’s enough to drive Gabi over the edge and into a neighboring town’s divorce support group. It’s not really her thing to listen to anonymous strangers bash their exes, but at least there are cookies. And a sexy fellow newcomer who ignites her long-dormant libido. Spending a few lustful, post-meeting moments in Hot Guy’s truck can’t hurt. Unless, of course, Hot Guy turns out to be Thatcher Roman—her best friend’s brother and Gabi’s silent business partner.

November Wrap Up

november wrap up

I think I read and reviewed some books during November, but the entire month feels like a blur, a NaNoWriMo instilled blur from which I’m still recovering. Actually, it feels good to catch up on all of the things that fell by the wayside. It would almost seem amazing that I got as many books read and reviewed as I did for November, except that I read a lot of them in October so that they’d be read for the November book tours.

Blurb: Millie Morris has always been one of the guys. A UC Santa Barbara professor, she’s a female-serial-killer expert who’s quick with a deflection joke and terrible at getting personal. And she, just like her four best guy friends and fellow professors, is perma-single.

So when a routine university function turns into a black tie gala, Mille and her circle make a pact that they’ll join an online dating service to find plus-ones for the event. There’s only one hitch: after making the pact, Millie and one of the guys, Reid Campbell, secretly spend the sexiest half-night of their lives together, but mutually decide the friendship would be better off strictly platonic.
