Publication Date: August 11, 2015 

Ryan's Love Full Cover

AmazonAmazon PRINTAmazon UK

One of the hardest things I have ever had to do was bury my wife.
The second hardest thing would be watching my twelve-year-old daughter fall to her knees as they lowered her mother into the ground to rest. A heart-wrenching vision that will forever be etched in my mind. Claire was my best friend—she had been since we were barely old enough to talk. I always knew, one day, I would marry her. I think I may have even told her that a few times while we were growing up. Never did I think I would lose her so suddenly. I knew at that moment… Our life would never be the same again…

About C.A. Har

5 stars

If your looking for a killer romance full of emotion then look no further, Ryan's Love is just what you need.
Immediately I found myself drawn to the town, the people and most importantly Ryan.
Ryan lost his wife 3 years ago and has settled into his life which basically consists of his daughter and work. No woman has been able to get his attention since losing the love of his life.
Into town marches Amber to reopen her recently inherited bakery.
As soon as she steps foot into town she meets Ryan. There's attraction on both sides but it's not acknowledged. But it seems every single cowboy in town wants a shot at the new girl, at this point Ryan has to make his attraction known or risk losing a shot with the one woman to stir his interest in years.

The next issue is being careful not to cause his daughter any pain. She's used to being daddy's only girl and is still hurting from the loss of her mother. This is where it gets tricky!

I loved this book, seriously I may have underestimated it going in. I was hooked from the first chapter and read it through in one sitting.  Ryan and Amber, his family, all of the townspeople will steal your heart and leave you wishing the story continued.

They say that love happens when you least expect it. 

Meet the star of this story, Hunter “Rush” Cambridge: Heartthrob, somewhat of a local celebrity, and hugely guarded of those he loves. Rush has never been in love. Lust is more his thing. In fact, he’s all business. The former athlete and current bar owner is solely focused on getting his new mega club up and running. But then Alika Collins comes crashing into his life—literally. 

Alika has flown from Las Vegas, to the Bay Area to meet up with someone that she met online. Only when she arrives, things quickly go south and Alika realizes that she has made the biggest mistake of her life. But did she? 

Sometimes bad things occur so that better things can replace them… 

After Alika manages to escape her situation, she finds refuge in the backseat of Rush’s car. Everything moves quickly from that point as she is insinuated into his world. Although Rush is preparing for the opening of his new club, he is compelled to be a source of help to her, in the process. 

But while Rush is helping to sort out pieces of Alika’s life, he’s got a few problems of his own. There are forces conspiring to take down everything that he has worked so hard for, and he’s not having it. 

Will Rush emerge unscathed once the truth comes out? Will there be love at the end for him and Alika, or is he just the person who happened to come along when she needed a friend the most?

Author Bio

Perri Forrest was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and raised in sunny California. She describes herself as a trilogy – a Businesswoman who navigates through Corporate America flawlessly from Human Resources to Project Management, a Sociologist with a burning desire to save the world, and an Author who loves writing life into fiction. 

While her pen and paper consummated when she was pre-teen, her written words would not be seen until a long time after. Perri’s dream was always to write a book, but she didn’t take steps to do so out of fear that readers wouldn’t be interested in what she had to say. 

When Perri suffered the devastating loss of her first cousin, in 2006, with a few months left to complete her undergraduate studies, she barely made it through. A good friend not only suggested that she begin blogging, that friend gifted her with a newly designed blog platform, which birthed her first e-journal. 

The blog opened a whole new world for Perri and served as a place she could express candidly, about life. When her blog was discovered and she began receiving compliments on not just her candor, but on her writing style, it fueled the fire, and thoughts of penning a novel resurfaced. 

The lingering doubts of, “Who would even want to read your work?” were replaced with, “Worry about an audience later, and just do it.” 

And that she did. 

Perri writes what she likes to call, Sensual Romance. “I call it romance with a lot of heat and passion,” she says. “It’s a sexy kind of intimacy that I love exploring through my characters. I enjoy seeing them connect on both intellectual and physical levels. That connection allows me to build erotic moments, with purpose, and satisfaction.” 

Perri plans to perfect her craft and delve into other genres, down the line. With “Amazon bestselling author,” added to her list of credits, Perri is in the writing game for the long haul and has no intentions of putting down her pen any time soon.

Series: The Broken Road #2
Author: Melissa Huie
Publisher: Booktrope Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense
 Release Date: August 27, 2015


The Sequel to the sexy, suspenseful novel The Broken Road. 

“Not a day had gone by that I didn’t dream about Shane, that one day he would come home to us. I imagined that our days would be filled with long talks and moments of reconnection, and our nights would be full of hot, sweaty sex. But things weren’t going the way I had imagined. Baby steps, Megan. He just needs to adjust. I couldn’t change the past and we would have to take things in stride. We couldn’t be the same couple we once were, not overnight.” 

When Shane Turner shows up at Megan Connors’s carport one rainy night, Megan thinks she’s dreaming. The man who has held her heart since high school, and the father of her unborn child, is supposed to be dead, killed in an explosion at a safe house. But somehow Shane has survived, and Megan believes that with him home safely and their baby on the way, they will finally get their happy ending. 

But it soon becomes apparent that all is not what it seems. Shane is home, but he’s brought some demons back with him, demons that Megan can’t fight alone. Shane is a haunted man, plagued by paranoia and distrust. He believes that danger threatens their lives at every turn, and it is tearing their life together apart. 

In this compelling sequel to The Broken Road, Shane must deal with the present and the future, with the cartel—and himself. Megan must protect her family and, when the time comes, must make the ultimate decision.

Will Shane and Megan have their happily ever after, or will it just be another broken promise?

“Good morning,” he said, his voice still thick with sleep. He wrapped his muscular arms around my belly from behind me, the evidence of his arousal pressed against the small of my back. My breath caught and my heart quickened as he nuzzled the sensitive spot under my ear. Just this one simple act had my core pulsing with liquid heat. His hands roamed north, barely grazing my belly, and tenderly kneaded my swollen breasts. Moaning, I tilted my head up toward his and caught his searing lips with mine. 

Abandoning the pan in front of me, I turned and threw my arms around his neck. Passion fueled my body as our lips frantically mashed together. Our tongues clashed, dueling over the right to invade the other’s mouth. Shane’s hands cupped my behind, then gripped hard as he led me over to the table. He swept aside the napkins and papers that covered it and lifted me onto the smooth surface.

Red colored my vision as my primal need took over. Shane pulled off my bathrobe at the same moment I yanked down his sweatpants. My mouth watered at the size of his erection and I eagerly stroked his throbbing, rigid shaft. His head rolled back and he groaned at my touch. There was a time for cuddling and foreplay, but this wasn’t it. His hazel eyes smoldered, and he desperately ripped the thin material of my cotton underwear right out from under me. Craving his touch, his body, his heat against mine, I leaned back on my elbows and gave him the opening he wanted.

Unexpected (Skipping Stones: Book 2)
“How did I get in here?” I ask when my eyes make it back to his face.
With his eyes still closed he says, “Shh…sleeping.”
“Yes, I heard that. But considering you are talking I took it as you were awake. So again how did I get here?”
Sighing loudly, he squints one eye open and looks at me, “Ya know, when someone says their sleeping. It don’t mean keep talking to them, it means be quiet.”
“I don’t care, answer my question.”
“You ain’t gonna stop until I tell ya, are ya?”
“Nope, sure ain’t.”
Huffing out his breath he tells me, “After we had our fight, you passed out in the yard. So being the gentleman I am, I carried ya inside and gave you a shower and then I put you to bed.”
I stay silent. I passed out? Seriously?
“Now that I answered your question. Can I go back to sleep?”
