Saving Grace

by Mignon Mykel Loving Meadows, #1 Publication Date: December 19, 2016 Genres: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Synopsis: He calms me.
An unexpected long-distance friendship showed Gracelyn Dewey the ease of some relationships. Very few people could get past her walls and even then, fewer had the ability to see through her anxieties. With him, she finds more—but circumstances wouldn’t allow them to keep it. Instead, they find an easy friendship with one another. Until it wasn’t easy any more. She grounds me. In his line of work, Sawyer Meadows sees some gut wrenching things. He sees broken people, wounded people, fearful people. He loves his job, yet is losing a piece of himself in the mix. But there was always her. Drawn to her quiet smile, he has always known she was meant to be something special to him. A fact that became painfully evident when she found someone else to hold her. Somewhere along the way, we lost it. They are given one weekend together to fix their friendship. The days can’t go off without any hitches though. When her recent past and his career collide, they’ll have to decide—is the distance enough to keep them apart? Or are they through letting everything else dictate their happiness? She’s my saving grace, and I plan on saving her in the process. goodreads-badge-add-38px

by Cindy Skaggs Untouchables #2 Publication Date: December 12, 2016 Genres: Adult, Entangled: Ignite, Romantic Suspense


Synopsis: Vicki Calvetti made it out of the mob—or so she hoped. But when the old family hitman, the FBI, the Justice Department, and a smoking hot man from her past crash land on her doorstep, she learns she’s not quite done.An undercover cop chasing revenge, Blake Reilly gets the shock of his life when Vicki walks back into his life and into his club full of more drug dealers than a pharmaceutical convention. Catching up doesn’t take long, and their undeniable chemistry is full-speed-ahead until someone ends up dead, putting both their lives at risk unless Vicki can remember the secrets she paid to forget. goodreads-badge-add-38px



Synopsis: Untouchables, #1.5
Sofia Capri survived life as a mob wife, but living with drop-dead gorgeous FBI agent Logan Stone has its own challenges. Step one? Host his family for Christmas dinner. Rescuing Sofia from her former mob life and saving her kidnapped son was enough to earn Logan a place in her life, but a mysterious phone call before dinner threatens the security he'd give anything to provide. When Sofia's son and Logan's nieces disappear from the festivities, the illusion of a normal Christmas shatters, hurling Sofia back into her nightmares.


Synopsis: Untouchables, #1
Action. Romance. Hot heroes. Don't miss Ignite's newest romance... She'll do whatever it takes to find her son - Lie. Cheat. Steal. Seduce... As the former wife of an infamous crime boss, Sofia Capri is untouchable. She exists outside of the law...and outside of the criminal world. When her son is kidnapped, Sofia's desperate to find him. She'll do anything. Lie. Cheat. Steal. Anything but trust. But it's a strikingly handsome FBI agent who's her only chance to get her baby back... Something about Sofia's fiery beauty must be hitting all of his weak spots, because suddenly Mr. Law And Order Logan Stone finds himself bending the rules. When they're implicated in the kidnapping, Logan and Sofia discover a horrifying reality - they have less than 72 hours to find the boy and clear their names. Now the heat is turning up...and time is running out...for everyone.


Cindy grew up on stories of mob bosses, horse thieves, cold-blooded killers, and the last honest man. Most of those stories were even true. She has ten siblings, some of whom are older than her mother, has nieces and nephews older than her, and once went to a horse auction with John Wayne. Well, with him in the sense that he was there, and she was also… there. She was the munchkin in line for his autograph with tangled hair and bruised knees that liked to dance on her daddy’s dusty cowboy boots and listen to his tall tales. With her love of storytelling and heroes, it’s no wonder she turned to books and stories after her father died. She skipped most of the eighth grade to bury herself in books while hidden in her closet, because she was still looking for the perfect story and the last honest man. Her search took her around the world with the Air Force as well as around the world with her education. She’s visited more countries than she can remember, nearly every state in the U.S., and has more degrees than the Tin Man. As a single mom, she’s still gambling, betting on herself for the first time in her life, turning her lifelong love of storytelling into the one thing she can’t live without: writing. She writes 10,000 words a week in cafes and coffee shops, and some of those 10,000 words are even worth reading. She has an MA in Creative Writing, is working towards her Master of Fine Arts, and has three jobs, two kids, a Pushcart Nomination, more pets than she can possibly handle, and more works in progress than the crew filling potholes after a long Colorado winter.

I grab a beer from the counter in the kitchen and head out the back door. Night had drawn in despite the long sunny day. I take a seat next to a few guys from my psychology class who are sitting on the decking. From this position, I have the perfect view of the two main rooms of the house. And a perfect fucking view of Lily dancing with some stranger. 
I stand abruptly. “Hey, watch it, Jake.” I look down and realise I’ve tipped beer all over… this kid’s lap.
“Sorry, my bad.” 
I sit back down and wrestle the possessive fire bolt that just struck in my chest. I have no fucking right to be jealous. I could have Lily if I want. I know she still has feelings for me. She tries to hide it, but every time those big tempting eyes look at me, I can see what she’s keeping quiet about. She’s never told me how she feels, never spoken about it with her friends, from what I can tell. 
It’s been our mutually kept little secret. All the way through school.
Until this fucking minute, as I see this guy pull her in closer and whisper in her ear. Her innocence is screaming at him. I bet he can even smell it on her. That fresh flowers in spring scent that never seems to leave her. Another thing that drives me fucking crazy. 
The guy seems to have a couple of friends with him. None of them I recognise.  
“Hey, anyone know who those three stooges are?”
“No, they aren’t from St. George’s.” 
I settle in and watch. The shadows shroud me in darkness and keep me hidden. I must be a masochist because it’s fucking misery. Lily is sweet, kind and laughing like she doesn’t have a care in the world. She’s breathtaking. 
She stops with the dancing and pulls out her phone. I look at my watch and notice the time. Midnight is her usual pick up time. The guy follows her as she and Charlotte leave the dancing. I can see them in the hall through the next window along, and I don’t think twice about getting up to see just what this guy’s intentions are.
My view into the room is obscured, but there is no missing the kiss he gives Lily. The fucking kiss I’d always wanted to give her. I smash my bottle on the floor as the rage inside gets the better of me. I ignore every pair of eyes that are now on me and march right back into the room. 
Prince-fucking-charming comes back into the room with a shit eating grin on his face. 
“You! Don’t you ever fucking hurt her, you got me? If you do, I’ll make your life a fucking misery and be happy to do it.” My hands grip around his shirt collar as I spit the warning at him.
Several pairs of hands try to separate us, but they have no fucking chance. 
“Relax, man. I’m not going to mess with her.” He has an inch or so on me in height, but I more than make up for it with brawn. “What’s she to you? You her brother?”
“No. Just watch yourself. She’s too fucking good for you.” My heart stampedes in my chest as I lay down my warning. I release him and leave the room. I’m pumped and ready to rip someone apart. Everything is heightened, and I need to get out before I do something fucking stupid. I turn and realise everyone is staring at me. It’s eerily quiet as the music has suddenly been turned off. 
I do the usual and ignore everyone and leave through the back, out into the garden and around the side of the house. God, I’m a bastard.
