Hart’s Desire (Hart Trilogy #1) by Chloe Flowers

An independent young lady meets a bold merchant captain pursued by a band of pirates…what could possibly go wrong?
Fiercely independent and equally impetuous Keelan Grey acts the dutiful daughter on the outside, but inside, she’s determined to avoid marriage to a cruel neighboring plantation owner even if it means taking the most desperate measures. Everything changes when a deathbed confession from a loved one plunges her into a dark plot of deception and revenge. Desperate for help, Keelan finds an unlikely ally in the antagonistic but irresistible sea captain, Landon Hart.
Rakishly handsome and equally exasperating Landon Hart is a Freedom Runner-part of a network of people moving runaways to a new life up North. When he meets a sword-wielding, fiery-haired temptress on the way, he isn’t prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart…nor the trouble she manages to attract.

Russian Lullaby by Holly BargoRussian Lullaby by Holly Bargo #FreeBookFriday #Read

A case of mistaken identity lands graduate student Giancarla Bonetti in a heap of trouble, only to be rescued by Bratva interrogator Vitaly Synvolka. Sensing that she’s his final opportunity to save what’s left of his humanity after a lifetime of brutality, he offers the innocent young woman three options: go back to her life and be killed by the thugs who kidnapped her; go far, far away and start a new life at a new school and hope the thugs don’t find her; or, marry him, accept his protection, and finish her degree.
Option #3 isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Whole Lotta Love by Luanna StewartWhole Lotta Love by Luanna Stewart #FreeBookFriday #Read

Lotta has a few days to get her bakery up and running, otherwise she’ll let down her best friend days before her wedding. But that means talking to an old high school crush, the cutest handyman in town. Baking bread and hanging out with her dog is much safer.
Mitch is high and dry with a broken leg so can’t help run the family fishing business. To keep from going stir crazy he straps on his tool belt – he can still pound a few nails. His customer is the shy girl from chemistry class, now a sensual woman with a sweet smile, though she still doesn’t say much. But what Mitch has in mind doesn’t involve a lot of talking.
While Lotta struggles to bake all the sweets, Mitch becomes interested in nibbling more than just her cookies.

Three For The Win by Keta Diablo

Eli
I’ve loved Hollis forever, it seems. I meant to tell her so many times but always chickened out. Then Stede rode into town on his big shiny motorcycle and saved my life. Hollis fell hard for him. I get that, what’s not to love about Stede? I watched and waited, hoped whatever they felt for one another would pass. It didn’t, and now Stede’s hot head has landed him in trouble…again.
Hollis
I should have known better than to fall for a bone-melting man like Stede Marrow. A man who hides everything about his past. I know Stede loves me and I know he loves Eli too, like a brother. Stede’s gone now and Eli’s here to pick up the pieces of my broken life.
Stede
I should have kept on riding after I saved Eli at the creek. But then I saw Hollis and forgot about that road up ahead. I wanted to tell her why I’m running and who I am. But I haven’t even told Eli. It’s safer that way. I said I’d never go back to that hick town, swore I’d forget about Hollis. I didn’t bank on her being so damn unforgettable.

Her Gilded Prison by Beverley OakleyFree Read: Her Gilded Prison by Beverley Oakley #Historical #FreeBookFriday #RLFblog

She was determined to secure the succession, he was in it for the pleasure. Falling in love was not part of the arrangement.
When dashing twenty-five-year-old Stephen Cranbourne arrives at the estate he will one day inherit, it’s expected he will make a match with his beautiful second cousin, Araminta.
But while proud, fiery Araminta and her shy, plain sister, Hetty, parade their very different charms before him, it’s their mother, Sybil, a lonely and discarded wife, who evokes first his sympathy and then stokes his lustful fires.
As Stephen introduces Sybil to every pleasure she’s been deprived of, duty and passion become a deep and mutual love. But with the unexpected arrival of a contender to the estate, Sybil realises that what she’s set in motion to save the family might have tragic consequences.
Her Gilded Prison is Book 1 in the Daughters of Sin series, a Regency-set ‘Dynasty’ that follows the sibling rivalry between Viscount Partington’s two nobly-born and his illegitimate daughters as they compete for love during a London Season. Her Gilded Prison can, however, be read as a stand-alone.

Alien Mate by Cara BristolAlien Mate by Cara Bristol #SciFi #Romance #FreeBookFriday #RLFblog

I’m Starr Elizabeth Conner. Earth’s government falsely convicted me of a crime, packed me on a ship with other female felons, and sent us to Dakon, a primitive, frozen wasteland of a planet.
But I’m no barbarian’s ‘mail order bride,’ even if he is super tall, muscular, and the chief of his tribe. He doesn’t want a BBW blonde, either–it’s written all over his chiseled face. He’ll be truly angry if he ever learns what my ‘crime’ was.
I am Torg. I have waited 34 rotations for a mate of my own. With this shipment, I was sure to get a fine, sturdy mate who’ll bear me many daughters. Instead, I receive a small, curvy, pale-haired female who looks at me with anger and fear.
It is only when we ‘kiss’ that I believe things may work out between us. But I’m hearing rumors that Starr and her shipmates are law-breakers. To survive, Dakonians must obey all laws … or be exiled into the frozen wasteland. Just when I have found my mate, will I have to banish her?

Mated to the Pack by Jade AltersMated to the Pack by Jade Alters #PNR #FreeBookFriday #RLFblog

Vivian was thankful for everything her wealthy Aunt left her.
Until she found out that also meant she’s now responsible for that old run down mansion she grew up playing in.
She would keep it, but she would go bankrupt; she would sell it, but there’s no one out there to buy it.
That’s when four super-hot and mysterious renters show up to save the day.
They’ve got more big secrets than she can handle though, the biggest of which might be why she’s finding herself drawn to each of them.
Call it nature.
Call it instinct.
Whatever it is, this pack has found its mate, and the only question is going to be whether Viv can handle being mated to this pack.

Is It True: Love and Mayhem by Luanna Stewart @luanna_stewart #RLFblog #historical romancePlay Is It True with today’s guest Luanna Stewart, author of Love and Mayhem, a Historical Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.
Sybil is happily on the shelf, tending to her sheep. But she fears she’ll depart this life without experiencing physical love, which she suspects is rather enjoyable. When her long-lost fiancé returns from sea, she decides he’s the lucky man who’ll receive her virginity.
Max is eager to return to his sugar plantation and has no intention of remaining long in London. However, he didn’t bargain on a wilful, pretty, exasperating spinster determined to take him to her bed.
He insists on marriage but she wants only his body. Her heart is not part of the deal. Unfortunately, love doesn’t always follow the rules.
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Genre: historical romance
Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I’ve written many books, and have previously published two full-length novels (one a romantic suspense and one an historical romance) and three novellas (contemporary romance).
this book is part of a series?
Yes, this is the first in a series. I’ve just contracted the second in the series, Love and Turmoil, and hope it will be out before the end of the year.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
No, I can’t say that I lost sleep, but the characters and the plot were my constant companions until long after the book was finished. I’m considering writing a short story about Max and Sybil’s life a few years later because I want to visit with them again.
you did research for this book?
Oh, yes, lots and lots of research. That’s my favorite part of writing historical fiction. I especially enjoy searching for an obscure tidbit that I can include in the story.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Hm…not in the book exactly, but sheep are extremely important to Sybil. And there’s a question about fleas. Oh, and a very interesting conversation about fruit bats.
this book has more than one genre?
No, just historical romance.
you speak more than one language?
No, alas, I’ve lost most of my childhood French. As a Canadian, with French being the official second language, I was instructed in French from grade three thru grade 12. I remember enough to locate a bathroom or a library, LOL.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes, but only recently. We moved back to Nova Scotia a few months ago.
you love to read?
Yes! I can’t imagine not reading. I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I even belonged to a children’s book club and can remember my feeling of joy when I got home from school to find a new book in the mail.
you are never late?
I HATE being late and usually leave early to avoid it.
you love pizza?
Yes. Pretty much any topping except pineapple – I don’t understand that one at all.
you love sushi?
No. But I have to confess that I’ve never tried it, nor will I ever. I have a psychological block to the concept of eating raw fish, or any other type of raw animal protein.
you have a pet?
Yes, two cats: Mogget, a girl, and Bruno, a boy. She’s a princess and he’s a simple soul.
Where can we find your book online?
