Indian-American author Sienna Snow is a supermom writer with two Bachelor’s degrees and two Masters under her belt.

Her trilogy of romantic fiction aims to shatter the stereotypes associated with weak female characters pervasive in romantic and erotic fiction today. Inspired by her years working in corporate America as a management consultant, Sienna has created a narrative around strong, successful business women who know what they want and exactly how to get it – without the need to seek support and praise from their male counterparts.

In fact, the heroines in her books are billionaires, but this time with female characters taking the lead role. The trilogy starts with Rule Breaker (Release November 1, 2016 by Hachette Group’s Forever Yours imprint).

From diverse backgrounds, the heroines are smart, well-educated women who choose to find love through atypical circumstances. Sienna has taken the stereotypical billionaire story and spun it on its head.

Shopping for a Billionaire's Baby Teaser 2

You know what’s even better than marrying a billionaire? Having his baby.

We’re ready. We’ve studied and planned, read all the birth and labor books, researched parenting classes, consulted our schedules, and it’s time.

And by we I mean me.

Declan’s just ready for the “have lots of sex” part. More than ready.

But there’s just one problem: my husband and his brother have this little obsession with competition.

And by little, I mean stupid.

That’s right.

We’re not just about to try to bring a new human being into the world.

We have to do it better, Faster, Stronger.

Harder.

McCormick men don’t just have babies.

They engage in competitive billionaire Babythons.

I thought the hardest part about getting pregnant would be dealing with my grandchild-crazed mother, who will go nuts shopping for a billionaire’s baby.

Wrong.

Between conception issues, my mother’s desire to talk to the baby through a hoo-haw cam, a childbirth class led by a drill sergeant and a father-in-law determined to sign the kid up for prep school before Declan even pulls out, my pregnancy has turned out to be one ordeal after the other.

But it’s nothing — nothing — compared to the actual birth.

Shopping for a Billionaire’s Baby is the newest book in Julia Kent’s New York Times
bestselling romantic comedy series and is a 400+ page full-length novel.

Shopping for a Billionaire's Baby Teaser 3

Excerpt

Man embraces and kisses a stomach of the pregnant woman

“Just because other people can’t get their act together as parents doesn’t mean we can’t,” I explain. “There is no process that can’t be project managed into a well-oiled machine, babies included.”

Andrew snorts. “You really believe that.”

“A baby is like a disruptive new technology. But our first deliverable is still eight months to a year away. That leaves us plenty of time to update our practices and diversify into new areas. Find the best people, incentivize them, and keep them in their swim lanes.”

I’m getting major raised eyebrows here.

“Optimization protocols, testing, fine tuning, and putting together the right team is all it
takes. Drill down to the essentials, find people who are the absolute best at what we need, and that’s it–we build a life based on optimal outcomes.”

“You sound like you’re making a robotic dog, Dec. Not a human.”

“This baby will have a hands-on father. Plenty of love. And with a mother like Shannon, how could we go wrong?” Mother. Calling Shannon a mother does something to my gut. A tug, hard and emotional, destabilizes me for a second.

SYNOPSIS

ManicMonday-Teaser 1-AN

The perfect man for me is a blood-sucking lawyer. #pfftwhatever

Been there.

Done that.

Burned the T-shirt.

I didn’t swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can’t be trusted.

Now that I’m back in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom and me. I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, it’s just on hold—indefinitely.

Then I see Reed Warner again, and he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take no for an answer.

In spite of my better judgment I can’t stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame, or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance.

You know when you’re on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate éclair and my willpower is fading fast.

The problem? Not only is he a lawyer…

He was the best man at my wedding.

Manic pbb and pad

Manic Monday is the first book in the brand new Charity Case Series by the amaz-a-balls author duo Piper Rayne. I’ve read every single one of these two authors books, well, writing as Piper Rayne that is and I can testify, hand on heart, (your honor), this one is my favorite.

It’s set in Chicago and features Victoria Clarke, the recently divorced mom of seven year old Jade and lawyer about town, Reed Warner.

Victoria lived in L.A and worked for Jared Kale whom we met in Chore Play, but after her mom became ill, she needed to relocated back home and he was instrumental in getting her new job there working at RISE. Now, she’s all about, work and school, both hers and Jade’s. If you want a little insight into how all this went down, then grab your copy of Clean Slate which is currently free.

So, now she’s back home, living with her mom and working on getting her degree so she can start afresh. She’s not looking for a man, or a relationship, certainly not love, so when Reed breezes into her life she’s less than receptive, at least at first.

Reed is a sweet, wholesome guy even if he is in Victoria’s eyes ‘a dreaded lawyer’. He pretty much wears his heart on his sleeve and isn’t slow at showing Victoria that he’s interested. He’s quiet mannered, driven and an all round good guy, but he’s got a fight on his hands to make Victoria see beyond the title and the fact that he not only knows her ex, he was friends with him, and his best man at the wedding.

Victoria is laden with baggage from her broken marriage, she’s jaded and just isn’t ready to fall in love, but fate has different ideas.

Will she succumb to the gorgeous sweet, hottie that is Reed Warner, or will she let her horrid ex win?

Excerpt

thumbnail_ManicMonday-Teaser 2-AN

My phone rings just as I step onto the train. “Hello?”

“Victoria.” Darcie barks my name like she’s the head nun at a Catholic high school and I’m showing cleavage.

“How did you get this number?”

“I have my connections,” she says, and I already know from her tone that she’s about to ruin my day.

“What’s up, Darcie?” I try to hide the irritation from my voice, but I’m not sure I’m entirely successful.

“I just found you a partner to help with the carnival event.”

I blow out a breath and find a seat in the back of the train. “I don’t need a partner.”

“Well, he would only help out if it meant that he could work with you.”

A million swear words set off like a round of fireworks in my head.

“You’re kidding me?”

She laughs. “I wish I was.” I detect a bite of jealousy in her tone. “If I was single…anyway, he requested you and we so rarely get fathers or father figures so in this case, I have to let him have what he wants. And for some reason, that’s you.”

I watch the city skyline getting closer out the window. “Who is he to Henry?” I ask.

She laughs and then I hear chatter behind her. I wish I was in front of her, so I could shake her shoulders and get her to focus on me.

“Oh, you’ll find out.”

“Henry’s mom’s boyfriend?” I ask.

“Nope. Ask for yourself. Gotta go. Oh, and I’m sending him your phone number right now.”

Click.

The line dies. Mother fucking hell. Am I trapped in some Mean Girls reunion movie?

I haven’t even tucked my phone back into my purse before it dings with a text. I’d ignore it if I wasn’t worried that it could be my mom needing me.

Unknown: Hey, it’s Reed. The stunning guy you just reacquainted yourself with twenty minutes ago. How about a nightcap tonight to start brainstorming ideas for the carnival?

I add his contact information into my phone, so I don’t mistakenly answer again.

Me: Don’t you have a son to watch at night?

Reed: Nope.

Me: I don’t think your girlfriend would appreciate your invite. We can talk details over a morning coffee and that’s it.

Reed: ???

Reed: Not even dinner?

I don’t respond.

Reed: Lunch? Even business associates have lunch together.

I shake my head and try to tamp down my temper.

Reed: Fine. But mornings are hard for me.

I’m being difficult for the sake of being difficult now. I can’t very well ask Hannah to come in late to plan some stupid carnival booth anyway.

Me: Saturday?

Reed: J J J J J My place.

The three dots appear but I respond before he can.

Me: McDonald’s on Peterson. The kids can play, and we’ll talk. Noon.

Reed: You run a hard bargain and I make a lot of deals.

What the hell does that mean?

Reed: I take it that’s the end of our conversation?

I don’t reply because there’s nothing else to say.

Reed: Message received. Have a great day, Victoria. J

I tuck my phone back into my purse with a giddy feeling inside. Damn it. I wish my stomach would get the message my brain is trying to send it.

Single dad and hockey star, Calder Weiss has put his love life on the back burner for the past five years, raising his daughter and keeping up with the demands of his profession.

But all that changes the minute Rachel Perry runs into him in the most unlikely of places, right outside the men’s bathroom. Vibrant and enchanting, she captures his attention, making it impossible for him to walk away without scoring her number.

Their connection is immediate, their attraction palpable, and their relationship undeniable. But Rachel isn’t the only girl in Calder’s life which scares him, because Calder’s daughter already lost her mother. He doesn’t want Shea to lose someone close to her again, making Rachel’s task of breaking through Calder’s wall that much more difficult.

 

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

The First Sin Teaser 1
Blurb

 

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a blue-eyed boy who promised me forever.

We fell hard and fast, even though our relationship was forbidden.

Loving Angelo Morelli wasn’t my first sin.

It wouldn’t be my last.

Our families were friends before they were enemies, fighting for power in the city. I was their bargaining chip, a pawn to be used by the most powerful men in Philadelphia.

I just didn’t know it.

Angelo was my white knight in a world full of darkness.

But someone had to pay for our sins.

Too bad that person was me.

MY REVIEW CEE CEE HOUSTON

I’ve only read a few books by Jillian Quinn before and none as dark and gritty as this one. This was a real eye-opener for me, full of dark twists and turns. Such a change from the sweeter side of this author that I’m used to. But, thankfully, Jillian manges to carry it off and very well too.

I’m not really a mafia book fan, but this one is certainly bringing about a change in my attitude. It’s got strong, belligerent characters that know how to take control. Angelo, the bad boy hero and Gianna, his fiery, feisty girl will sweep you away with their burning chemistry and hot as sin scenes.

This book has it all, deep protective love, troublesome families and danger. With more than a handful of obstacles in their way, will these two survive until the end?

I can’t wait to see what comes next.

My new neighbor is irresistible, and he’s keeping me up ALL night long…
Emerson Hayes is sexy, arrogant, and has abs that would put a Hemsworth to shame. He’s also opening a bar with his buddies right below my apartment. Goodbye, peace and quiet, hello sleepless nights fantasizing about my hot new landlord…
But when my stuffy workplace makes it clear I need a plus-one for our events, I have the perfect way to even the score. Emerson is A+ arm-candy… as long as I can resist taking a bite. Our arrangement is supposed to be just for show, but Emerson is like that fifth shot of tequila: tempting, intoxicating, and liable to leave me flat on my back with my panties around my ankles, begging for more.
Maybe I should stay for just one more round…
Sparks fly in the hot new standalone series from Katie McCoy.

 

 
Rascal Teaser 1

Funny laugh out loud and a brilliant read. Katie McCoy is the mistress of hilarious Rom/Coms and this first book of the brand new Rascals series just proves it. Rascal was Emerson and Alex’s story. It was sweet and tender, but with moments of gut-busting amusement. (See their first encounter) It also had some super swoony moments that made me go ‘awwww’. Of course there was that one time that Emerson was a bit of a douche, but he made up for it.

For me, this was just the perfect book to sit back and relax with a glass of wine and my favorite snack. Not a lot of angst, no O/W or O/M drama and just a lovely ending to a fantastic story. Looking forward to Chase and Kelsey’s story next.

Camryn Singer never imagined that she would return to the place where she lost everything. To grant a dying wish, she and her young son make the move back to the small Jersey beach town where she grew up, hoping to somehow find the missing pieces of her life. Determined to keep her heart guarded, the last thing she needs is the force that is sexy surfer, Cole Stevens, literally slamming into her life.

Struggling against growing feelings for Cole, Camryn tries to focus on life with her son. But when Cole picks the lock to her heart, Camryn knows he might be the one to change everything. Just when Camryn thinks she’s finally finding her happiness, a ghost from the past comes back to haunt her.

LWY book and iPad

Lost Until You is the debut novel by author Kimberly Daniels. It’ an insta-love romance that tugged at my heartstrings and left me begging for more. It made my heart pitter-patter with the array of emotions that filled the story. A touch dramatic, a lot romantic with a hint of all round sweetness that had sighs of contentment filling the air around me.

This is the story of single mom, Camryn and Cole, a boy she once had a moment with in high school. Time has passed since then, Camryn has a young son and meets up with Cole when she returns to her hometown after the death of her mother.

Cole is sweet, kind and gentle, the epitome of a perfect boyfriend, he’s got a big heart and is ready to fall in love. When he and Camryn reconnect, he knows it was meant to be, he just has to get Camryn on the same page.

Camryn has some trust issues as any woman would who’d been through what she has, life hasn’t always been kind or fair to her and losing her mom hasn’t helped.

Cole is determined to win her heart, as well as her son’s and this was wonderful to watch as it played out over the pages of my kindle.

I really loved Cole. He was strong and sexy with a heart of true gold. A sweetheart if ever there was one/

All we need is love right?

If you want a heart-warming romance and to be swept away in a fantastic story then look no further. Just grab this today. You won’t be sorry.

My Review by Cee Cee Houston

30813896_10155842595269022_3877936754258465635_o

I wasn’t overly taken with this story. There were parts that were just so… wrong, at least for me and I couldn’t get past them.

I didn’t particularly like Tristan, he was too stuck in the past, too indifferent toward Elana at times.

Elana was forced by circumstances to work for Tristan and she’s barely more than a doormat at times. I didn’t feel the chemistry the way I’d have liked to. It didn’t help that the story was told in third person so it was hard to get into the heads of the characters to see how they were really feeling. It’s based on Beauty and the Beast, hence the title, but for me, it just didn’t capture my imagination.
