Avon Romance

Jennifer Bernard, the USA Today bestselling author of the Bachelor Firemen series, scores another homerun with a brand-new series about sexy, single baseball players.

Playing for the Kilby Catfish is hotshot pitcher Caleb Hart’s last chance to salvage his career after a major league meltdown. But the day of his opener with the minor league team, Caleb strikes out with the gorgeous woman who is delivering a petition to run the unruly Catfish out of town. Now to stay in the lineup, Caleb will need to score big with the feisty brunette he can’t keep out of his thoughts.

After the nasty lies Sadie Merritt’s rich ex-boyfriend spread about her all over town, she’s lucky to have a job at all. She can’t afford to screw it up by falling for the player who is supposed to be helping her change the image of the fun-loving Catfish. But that’s easier said than done when Caleb’s voice alone is enough to make her pulse race. And when he surprises her with a mind-blowing kiss, she knows there’s no turning back.

When Sadie glanced back over her shoulder, Caleb was chatting with two guys who must be fans, the way they were staring up at him in awe. She let out a long breath, grateful that she still had the ability to inhale and exhale. Caleb Hart was completely outside her experience. She’d known plenty of guys, of course. Boys at high school, boys at Kilby Community College. And the boy who’d ruined her life, Hamilton Wade.

But not even Hamilton had caused her heart to do this crazy cartwheeling Caleb inspired. She’d been swept off her feet by Ham, but in an awestruck, what-does-he-see-in-me way. He hadn’t made her hands damp and her thoughts scurry every which way like an anthill someone had stepped on.
Caleb had caught her at a vulnerable time in her life, that was all. There was a rational explanation for this crazy sensation, as if the ground wasn’t quite stable under her feet. Maybe there was a medical explanation, like vertigo. Or maybe Donna had spiked that White Russian. For sure, she couldn’t risk another devastating humiliation at the hands of a man.
She found Donna leaning on the bar, talking to Mike. “Donna, I have to go home. I told my mom I wouldn’t stay out too late.”
Donna turned a beaming, blurry smile on her. “Mike was just explaining the benefits of celibacy to me. Did you know it could raise my batting average by fifty points?” 
Sadie smiled at Mike, who winked. “Thanks, Mike. It was nice to meet you, but I’m going to take Donna home now.”
She couldn’t help looking for Caleb as she herded Donna toward the exit. As one of the tallest men in the room, and the one all the girls kept checking out, he was hard to miss. By the time she reached the door, three girls had joined the two other fans. He leaned against the wall, listening patiently to the little knot of admirers. The low light created shadows under his cheekbones and made the stubborn line of his jaw stand out. A slight smile tugged at one corner of his mouth.
His eyes shifted so he caught her gaze in a sudden flash of steely silver. The half smile turned into a full-voltage grin that transformed his face into something that belonged on a movie screen. Her knees nearly buckled, but she couldn’t for the life of her stop the smile that spread across her face.
She gave him an awkward little wave, then nearly tripped over Donna, who had stopped to adjust her halter top.
Donna staggered, then grabbed onto a nearby table. Sadie hauled her back to her feet and then, her face burning, glanced again at Caleb.
His smile broadened even further. He put his hand to his ear in a “Call me” gesture, then pointed from himself to her.
Oh my God. He was going to call her.

I learned from previous books that Jennifer Bernard has a way of writing sexy, strong and loyal heroes..those usually were Fireman. But now she’s gone and showed she knows her sports too. Baseball never looked so sexy ..until Caleb Hart was brought into my life. I first heard his name in It’s a Wonderful Fireman and I even mentioned in my review that I couldn’t wait for more. I was pleasantly rewarded for my patience.
All of me was sexy, sweet and seriously refreshing. I adored Caleb from the start and Sadie was brave and at the same time vulnerable. I really hated what she suffered in her past and loved how protective Caleb was to her in so many ways. Jennifer Bernard has a special knack for writing scenes that suck you in and make you feel so many things. There were some amazing secondary characters that added some fun, some angst and some mystery to this awesome story. I am looking forward to more from Jennifer because this was one spot on start to what looks to be a great series.

Release Blitz & Giveaway ~ The Other Man by R.K. LILLEY

Author: R.K. Lilley
Release date: May 25, 2015
Add to Goodreads


He was brazen as hell from the moment I laid eyes on him. He was aggressive, and dominant, with Mack truck arms, and a bar brawler voice. 

He was too good looking for his own good, with a hard jaw, and harder eyes. 

I’d always led a fairly peaceful life, but even I could tell at a glance that this man was dangerous. For so many reasons. 

Not the least of which being that rough, dirty, sheet-clawing sex fairly radiated off him. 

I’d thought I’d known how to handle every kind of man, but this one left me baffled. 

To say he wasn’t my type was putting it lightly. 

But you couldn’t tell that to my libido. 

Not even when I found out the truth. 

My lover had lied to me from the very start. 

Nothing about our meeting was a coincidence.


Heath's jaw clenched, like he was bracing himself for something. “I don’t think I have time for lunch.” 

My breath stuttered out of my chest. “What do you have time for?” 

He didn’t even bother to answer, just took my hand and started pulling me.

And I let him. 

Dammit, once I again, I was going to make this way too easy for him. 

But one look at his agitated face had left me with an agitated body. The man could make me wet with one look. It wasn’t lost on me how twisted it was that that look was a scowl. 

Heath angry = Me turned on. 

I really hoped that wouldn’t turn into a thing for me.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
