Title: Balance Check
A #MyNewLife Novel
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 18, 2017


Life has a funny way of throwing you off balance.

Take me for example. I spent years in a bad marriage with a self-serving ass, only to have the love of my life show up when I least expected him. Greg helped me on my journey of self discovery and taught me that, no, I’m not perfect. But I’m perfectly me.  It was an amazing journey.

We laughed hard. We loved even harder.

And then he was suddenly and cruelly ripped away from me by the unclenching jaws of fate.

Ok, so it wasn’t that dramatic. And I really need to stop watching the Investigation Channel.

But now Greg is back and as it turns out, re-incorporating someone into your life isn’t that easy. Between jobs, kids, and barely-there friendships, life and love can be messy. Making it all work is a balancing act.

But we’re determined to get it in check.





#1 Getting A Grip



Mother, reader, storytellerME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.

Title: Huntsman
A Prequel to the Spider Series
Author: Jaycee Ford
Genre: Military/New Adult/Romance
Release Date: November 11, 2016


With his first step onto the Afghan sand, the life Mike Shuler had known was gone forever. He had suffered the loss of his father and his best friend during his time away. The demons he faced in the desert turned his once hopeful future into dreams of a traumatic past, taking away every part of his soul.

The Marine could save the world but only one person could save him ... his Grace.



The world passed by in colors of green and blue. Not a single color to remind me of the place where I had spent the last four years of my life. But I didn’t need much of a reminder. Those thoughts were imbedded in my brain, flashes of moments that came and went whenever they pleased. No matter what I tried, I could never get away from the desert. Not even on this train, drowning in the colors of lush trees and shimmering rivers that blur before my eyes. Just as buildings and houses began to pop up among the trees, the click-clack of the train wheels began to slow.
“Main Street Station,” the conductor’s voice echoed through the car. Other men in camouflage stood before me, all of them staring out the window at the approaching train station. I stared with them, holding on to some small shred of hope that Grace would be waiting for me. But I knew that wouldn’t be. I hadn’t told anyone I would be arriving early, so there was no way she could have known. But some part of me hoped she would feel my homecoming and show up on a whim. To see only a glimpse of her face would make this agony a little less harsh.
Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines dashed for the exits with their duffle bags thrown over their backs. I took a deep breath and stood, making my way to the front of the car. The conductor shook my hand before I stepped down to the platform. No words were spoken, but I nodded when I met his eye. After all, I did this for him. I did this for everyone.
I stepped off the train, and for the first time in my life, I adored Southern humidity. I breathed it in, letting the moist air fill my chest. And then I coughed, the sand rattling my lungs. I looked around me, feeling jealous of the many joyous reunions. I had seen my fair share of battles, but coming home was going to be the worst battle I ever had to endure. A homecoming without my father. A homecoming without the love of my life. Some things couldn’t be fixed, but I could still undo one wrong. I could tell my daughter I was her father.

Ramsay - Review

Lydia De Havilland is shocked when Brogan Ramsay suddenly reappears in her life. Several years before, Brogan was the son of her family's gardener, and the boy she hurt and betrayed. But Brogan is no longer the quiet, sensitive boy she remembers. Now he's a man—gorgeous, powerful . . . and seeking vengeance. 

Brogan Ramsay can't let go of the memory of Lydia tricking him cruelly, leaving his heart shattered and his family penniless. And now he's back to destroy her family the way his was destroyed. There's only one problem . . . the girl who wounded him so badly years ago is now a woman who still has the power to render him breathless. 

Ramsay is the story of betrayal and wrath, of the strength of regret and the power of forgiveness. It is the story of the thin veil between love and hate, and how more often than not, when we seek to inflict pain on others, the heart we wound is our own. 

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY ARIES. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Great Standalone Read
Mia spins stories like no other, a masterful storyteller, one of the BEST I've read.Her writing is exemplary and stories are engaging.
Now Ramsay what can I say......THOROUGHLY ENJOYED. This is a MUST read!
Lydia De Havilland comes from a family of wealth. Brogan is the son of the family's gardener.
A betrayal occurs and revenge ensues. A story that is not only engaging a but teaches life lessons in how ones experiences and burdens reflects ones actions.
Captivating, heart-wrenching story that with love, trust, truth and faith comes FORGIVENESS.
I don't usually get emotional while reading but that garden party scene...simply put I had a lump in my throat. Very heartfelt and heart-wrenching.
Loved the fight scene between Fionn and Brogan, love the language used and the honesty that was spoken.
Memorable quotes "Thin line between love and hate."
An introduction for me to the Gaelic language and I LOVED it. This story had me at Mo Chroi.

Grin and Beard It - Review

Grin and Beard It - Review

by Penny Reid Winston Brothers #2 Publication Date: May 31, 2016 Genres: Adult,
Contemporary, Romantic Comedy     
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks | Smashwords
Sienna Diaz is everyone’s favorite “fat” funny lady. The movie studio executives can’t explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood’s most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna.
But she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the backroads of Green Valley, Tennessee. Much to her consternation, Sienna’s most frequent savior is a ridiculously handsome, charming, and cheeky Park Ranger by the name of Jethro Winston. Sienna is accustomed to high levels of man-handsome, so it’s not Jethro’s chiseled features or his perfect physique that make Sienna stutter. It’s his southern charm. And gentlemanly manners. And habit of looking at her too long and too often. Sienna has successfully navigated the labyrinth of Hollywood heartthrobs. But can she traverse the tenuous trails of Tennessee without losing her head? Or worse, her heart?
