They call me the sugar whisperer.
Anything your tongue desires, I can bake it. Scones? Child’s play. Cupcakes? I’ll frost them so good you won’t know what hit you. Donuts? Please.
You’re talking to a master baker.
But there’s one egg I’ve never been able to crack.
My best friend.
Correction: My former best friend.
She’s the apple in my pie. The whip in my cream. The lemon in my meringue. The wish in my bone.
She’s the one who got away.
After ten years in the military, she’s back. She’s bruised and battered by life, but she’s back.
Except she’s not my second chance. She’s gone to the dark side.
Running a rival bakery in a town not big enough for two.
So now I have to decide—which do I want more?
My bakery?
Or the woman I never should’ve let go in the first place?

Master Baker is a deliciously fun friends-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy fe…
Title: Halton Series: Vested Interest #6 Author: Melanie Moreland Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Date: June 27, 2019 When love turns to hate—that’s where I come in.  I’m Halton Andrew Smithers, attorney. Hal to my clients and friends.  Messy divorces, deadbeat dads, runaway wives, cheating partners—I handle them all. I know the seedy side of love, and it isn’t pretty. I avoid emotional attachments—I’ve seen all too often when hot passion turns to frozen tundra. I satisfy myself with helping people behind the scenes. It gives me a sense of satisfaction that completes my life.  Until she enters it and everything I believe is turned upside down. She fills a void I never knew existed, and I know without her, my life will never be the same again. For the first time, I want to try. For her.  But am I strong enough?

A damaged alpha hero who thinks he’s unworthy and incapable of love? Yes, please! And Moreland gives us a beautifully broken, compelling hero in Halton. An attorney and champion of truth …

She’s on the run…

My Review
“It took my life breaking apart . . . for ne to start building the beautiful one I had now.”
When I saw this book hit my Kindle, all other reading came to a screeching halt. (My apologies to the dozen other books I committed to read first.) And when I saw forty-seven chapters, I got a lit…
What’s a witch gotta do to reverse a magical coma, anyway?
The Misfortune of Dating a Witch: Magic and Mayhem Universe by Niecey Roy
I’m broken.
Okay, not actually. But even though I’m new at this witch stuff, I’m pretty sure things aren’t supposed to randomly burst into flames around me. It’s really starting to cramp my style.
To make matters worse, I accidentally put my date in a magical coma. And somehow—a rookie mistake—I yanked Daniel’s soul from his body. As a witch, I totally suck.
The bad news: time is running out to return Daniel’s soul or he’ll haunt me forever. The good news: Baba Yaga told me how to fix this mess. Hard to do, though, when my magic is going haywire and there’s a super sexy badass hunter who won’t let me out of his sight. Did I mention there’s a demon out there trying to kill me?
I swear, this witch can’t catch a break!
