For my US readers, you know that tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. For scheduling reasons, we celebrated Thanksgiving with our family today, which is why my picture of the week is Jasmine taking a nap on the couch with my husband. Tryptophan strikes again! 😀
Quick update on my writing: I have finished my Christmas novella, Blizzard of Love, so keep an eye out for that to hit your inbox soon! I'm so excited for this story; I hope you love it as much as I do.
Anyway, you may remember that last week, one of the authors that I highlighted in this newsletter is someone with whom I'll be in a Christmas multi-author bundle. This week, I'm highlighting the other author that will be in that bundle with me - Christine Kingsley. Christine is a terrific author, and a terrific friend.
The other author, J.B. Duvane, is another friend I've gotten to know over the past year. Although her book is a little darker than what I tend to recommend, for those of you who like a little dark in your reading, you'll love this book. J.B. is a very talented author.
Return to Love by Christine Kingsley
Cassie Powell is perfectly happy with her small town life in Willow Valley. She has a successful bakery and a beautiful little girl--everything she's ever wanted. But when Jack Martin swaggers back into town, secrets she's worked too hard to keep threaten to bring it all tumbling down around her.
Jack has always thought of Cassie as a little sister--until he sees her all grown up! But she's hiding something, and he's determined to find out what. Can he break down her walls and find a way into her heart?

His to Take by J.B. Duvane & Stella Noir
Adrian was my first love.
The boy I'd always compared all the others to.
But now he's a man and he's holding me captive.
I'd heard the stories for years but I didn't believe them.
My Adrian couldn't have done the things they say he did to all the other girls.
But now that I'm with him I see that it's true.
I know he's a monster ... and I'm terrified of him.
But I'm also terrified of the feelings I still have for him ... and what those feelings mean about me.
Brooklyn was the only one who ever saw my true self.
But that was seven years ago ... and it might as well have been a dream.
I had to leave her behind. It was the only way I could protect her from the truth about my family and our business.
But now a debt must be paid and she's been brought here.
And my father has ordered me to break her ... to ruin her.
If I follow his orders it will destroy me.
But if I don't ... my father will.
"His to Take" is the first part in a three-part series. It is not a standalone story. You must read all three parts of the series to reach the conclusion of Adrian and Brooklyn's journey, as well as the HEA ending. The series contains dark sexual themes and scenes that some may find disturbing. It is intended for mature readers.
