Detective Stevie Cavanaugh is one tough cookie…with a sexy but vulnerable secret…

Law enforcement royalty, Stevie Cavanaugh’s fate was determined before she was born: follow her father’s lead, retiring only after becoming Sheriff. But as capable and strong as she is, one man dared to awaken her dark sensuality, only to leave her aching for more. Now he’s back, the baddest cop in the whole damn town, distracting her from the most important case of her career—capturing the Cain killer. 

For Special Agent Jack Thornton, like Stevie, police work is in his blood. So is Stevie, the woman he left behind after just one perfect night. Now he’s forced to work with her to catch a killer. Only he wants more of Stevie, too. 

According to Stevie, she’s not interested. But Jack knows her deepest darkest sexual secret—that while she’s a woman used to giving command, she also takes great pleasure in submitting—to him. Despite how things ended seven years prior, Jack is determined to take Stevie to the next level.

When the fire between them becomes an inferno, they’ll both savor the burn…

Guest Post with Maggie Shayne (Twilight Guardians Book Tour) + #Giveaway


Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas virtual stop on Maggie Shayne’s Wings in the Night Reborn Blog Tour Celebration.


The Making of Maggie

Monster Movie MatineeWhen I was a little girl, I had two passions: Monsters and John Boy Walton.

Every Saturday afternoon, one of the three local TV stations ran a show called Monster Movie Matinee. I was addicted to this program. My siblings loved Saturday morning cartoons, but not me. I was all about Saturday afternoon monster movies.

They re-ran campy old classics, including lots and lots of vampire movies, both great ones like DRACULA and b-film spinoffs. I devoured them all, but secretly wondered why the mysterious, exotic vampire never got the girl. She always wound up with the wishy-washy vampire killer instead. It seemed unfair to me. And the pattern carried through other horror films, too: Wolfman, destined to kill what he loves. The Mummy, back from the dead to find his reincarnated soulmate only to lose her again. The Creature from the Black Lagoon in love with a bathing beauty he could never had, lured to his death by her, just as King Kong was by Fay Wray.

During those same formative years, I was also addicted to THE WALTONS. I never missed an episode, even the re-runs, and I identified with John Boy in a way I have never identified with a fictional character. Like me, he was the oldest child. He had six siblings, I had three, but that didn’t matter. Like me, he was the was a writer, closing himself in his room and filling journals. I filled mine with poetry. I couldn’t write personal things about my family, because they wouldn’t have been praise-filled and there is no question Mom would’ve read them. Like me, he was way smarter than anyone else in his story, be they parents, siblings, grandparents or neighbors. (At least, I thought I was.)

I wanted to BE John Boy Walton.

Blog Tour: “Love and Let Spy” by Shana Galen (Guest Post) + #Giveaway


Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas virtual stop on Shana Galen’s Love and Let Spy Blog Tour brought to you by InkSlinger PR.


Top Ten Must-Haves for a Spy 

I’ve written my fair share of spy heroes and heroines. Even though they share the same profession, the spies I write about are different and unique. Some prefer daggers, while others are better with pistols. Some spies plan and scheme, while others are more spontaneous. In my most recent release, Love and Let Spy, the heroine is Jane Bonde (yes Bonde, Jane Bonde). She’s the best England has to offer, and her mission is to defeat England’s greatest enemy and save the empire. All in a day’s work, right?

The good news is that even though Jane is unique as a spy, all spies have a few must-haves in common.

10. Flexibility

A spy has to be willing to think on his or her feet. Plans change and schemes go awry. A good spy is flexible and can change his or her strategy at a moment’s notice.

9. A weapon

No spy worth his or her salt leaves home without a weapon. It might be a fancy gadget or a crude dagger, but spies are always armed.

8. A secret identity.

Spies can’t go around announcing who they are. That would put them and their families in jeopardy. They need codenames and secret identities in order to carry out their important work.

7. A leader

Jane has M, who is a former spy and who now head the Barbican group. The best spies are out in the field, and they need someone willing to sit at a desk and do the research so the field agents know where to go next.

6. A mentor

Spies also need mentors. No one is born a spy, so it’s important that spies have plenty of training before they risk their lives defending the country.

5. An escape plan

A spy never goes into a situation without knowing how he or she will get out. Spies often have to make quick escapes, and the path isn’t always conventional.

4. A weaponry designer

Blog Tour: “Mean Streak” by Sandra Brown (ARC Review) + #Giveaway

Sandra Brown Blog Tour Banner

Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas virtual stop on Sandra Brown’s Mean Streak Blog Tour brought to you by Author’s Pal.



Mean Streak

Author: Sandra Brown

Publishing Date: August 19, 2014

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Source: Netgalley

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.

While police suspect Jeff of “instant divorce,” Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won’t even tell her his name. She’s determined to escape him, and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can’t turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law.

As her husband’s deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer.
