Melting the Ice Melting the Ice by Jaci Burton is $1.99! This is book seven in the Play-by-Play series and though it’s been a while since I’ve read this one, I think it’s fine as a standalone. I have a soft spot for this series as I devoured it rather quickly in my early 20s. The lovely team at Berkley even turned this cover into a poster for me. It hangs over my bed.  Body Check Everything’s coming together for budding fashion designer Carolina Preston. Only months away from having her own line, she could use some publicity. That’s when her brother suggests his best friend as a model – hockey player Drew Hogan. Carolina and Drew already have a history – a hot one, back in college. Unforgettable for Carolina, but for Drew, just another slap shot. This time, though, it’s different. His perfect body would be for professional use only. This time, she could use him. Drew is all for it. He’s looking forward to the exposure. Plus, it would give him a chance to prove to Carolina that he’s changed. If only he could thaw her emotions, convince her to let down her guard and let him in just one…

A- A Delicate Deception by Cat Sebastian December 10, 2019 · Avon Impulse Historical: EuropeanLGBTQIARegencyRomance I came close to crying more than once when reading A Delicate Deception.

A Delicate Deception is about Amelia Allenby, a young, reclusive historical novelist, and Sydney Goddard, who is a gentle, surly engineer. Amelia is the younger half-sister of the hero, Alistair, from the first book in the Regency Imposters series (Unmasked by the Marquess) and was friends with the heroine of the second book, Verity Kent (Amelia wrote the non-salacious parts of the salacious novel Verity publishes in A Duke in Disguise). Amelia and Sydney meet walking in the countryside, although in their first few encounters Amelia is silently annoyed that a man is intruding on her solitude and Sydney is silently polite: He lumbered along the path she had worn with her own feet as if…

It’s a Monday and Mondays are for Cover Snark! Elyse: Just going to leave this here. Amanda: Are they at a middle school dance? Elyse: RIGHT Ellen: They are clearly trying to leave room for Jesus. So its a church dance Sneezy: Looks like my high school dance class Hello phys ed, what are you doing here? Tara: You need to leave space for Jesus in between… Amanda: I also can’t tell if it’s contemporary or trying to be historical Tara: Ha! I didn’t read up before posting. High five Ellen! Looking at that title too, I’d bet money on it being a Christian romance Sarah: OK, that’s the 8th grade sway. They’re going to sway awkwardly back and forth, and if you’re around my age, it might be “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel, which is really romantic and intense. Then the song ends and then you’re not sure where to put your eyes. Shana: Yeah, this says junior high dance to me. Our game had improved by high school. Also, they appear to be from rival Disney Princess and country music cons, brought together by true love: Lara: Are their eyes closed or just looking down? If the…
