5 Stars! ~Cuddles Please Blog

Antiques expert Steve Carlson must face the mistakes of his past to discover a treasure he never imagined: the heart of a vulnerable yet determined widow.

TRUE RICHES
Twenty-eight-year-old Victoria Van Orr just lost everything. With the death of her billionaire husband went his mature patience and warm encouragement; and the veneer of acceptance from everyone else. His friends and colleagues now ignore Victoria, and if his son succeeds she just might be forced back to the streets upon which she was raised. But money was never her goal. All she wants is love. Real love.
Antiques expert Steve Carlson knows the value of everything. Pain and betrayal? Those he gave away–and now they’re coming back. His worst mistakes were all with one man: an old friend, the son of a father figure, now the stepchild of a beautiful young widow who wants Steve to help her auction off the family estate. To help Victoria, Steve must face his past and become a better man. To find true love, he will discover her surprisingly pure heart, vulnerable yet determined. And beyond price.

BLUE COLLAR: A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY COLLECTION #2
EDITED BY DELILAH DEVLIN
Only .99!

When it comes to love…Blue Collar is better!    It’s time to set aside those sexy billionaires and enjoy stories about the everyday, even sexier bad boys you meet in real life. They may have dirty hands and wear tool belts and jeans instead of Rolex watches, but they’re earthy alpha males unafraid to get down and dirty when face to face with a woman in need–whatever her need may be!

Just a few of the titillating stories inside…    In “Elevation” by Megan Mitcham, an always-in-control policewoman trapped in an elevator shaft gets a sexy rescue from the handsome repairman. A lonely woman drives a thousand miles to meet an oil field roughneck ready for a long night of laying pipe in Mia Hopkins’ “We Drill Deep While Others Sleep.” Jennifer Kacey shows the lengths to which an enterprising gal will go to get the owner of an oil change shop to check her fluids in “The Boss.” And those are just a few of the sexy stories inside this collection about the everyday hero next door.  These are men who’ve built their powerful muscles from hard work rather than inside any gym, and they sure know how to use their hard-earned skills to pleasure a woman… Includes the story “Upside Down Love” by Adele Downs.

Praise for Hook Me Up

“Hook Me Up by Adele Downs warmed my heart. Being a cat lover lol I couldn’t pass up the chance to read about the ‘damsel in distress with her kitten’ to be rescued by the hottest fireman in the city. How can you go wrong with kitties and a handsome hero?” 5 Stars! ~ Ravannah Rayne

“I was hooked from the start. You will need your own fire hydrant to put out the flames that Knox and Lexi create in this story.” 5 Stars! ~My Family’s Heart Reviews

“Hook Me Up – This story had a little bit of everything I look for when I’m reading a story. Good pacing, some humor and a hot hero. Knox is a complex man. He had a lot of depth and it was nice to see that he wasn’t perfect. His flaws and his issues made him more real, which I appreciated. And even though the way they met was very unconventional, the pair make it work. A sweet story with a satisfying ending. I’ll definitely be checking out what else Adele Downs has to offer.” 5 Stars! ~Z Shaw

“This book is marvelous, it cracked me up at the very first page…This is truly a sweet, touching and funny romance! If I could give it more than five stars I would! It is a must must read book!” 5 Stars! ~ Roxie’s Reviews

“Adele Downs writes with wit and emotion. Her characters are always lovable and HOT! She makes you want more.” 5 Stars! ~Will Work For Books

“Hook Me Up (Adele Downs) is a really quick story – it starts off with our heroine stuck in a tree! Of course, the sexy firefighter arrives to save the day! I loved the chemistry between these two – and the whole story just made me smile.” 4.5 Stars! ~ Cat’s Reviews

Here’s a little about the story. I hope you’ll pick up a copy.

LUXURY MODEL WIFE by Adele Downs

Antiques expert Steve Carlson must face the mistakes of his past to discover a treasure he never imagined: the heart of a vulnerable yet determined widow.

Excerpt:

Steve tilted his head, his bright blue eyes sizing her up. “Sorry, but I gotta’ ask. Do you always talk like that?”

Victoria felt her cheeks warm. “Whatever do you mean?”

There.” He studied her again with not-so-subtle curiosity. “You sounded like your late husband James just now. Funny, you don’t seem like the snooty type to me. More like a regular girl.”

His comment touched a nerve like hot wires to stripped cable. Victoria bit back a retort while blood rushed through her ears. She closed her eyes against the sound to clear her head. Twenty-eight was hardly a girl, and she was damn tired of defending her right to be a Van Orr.

For five years she’d tried and failed to fit into the privileged world of her older husband—learning couture, keeping her posture as straight as a modeling school graduate, rounding her O’s when she spoke —apparently fooling no one on either side of the social spectrum in the process.

Defeat swept over her and her shoulders sagged beneath five-thousand dollar silk and linen. No matter how hard she tried, she’d forever be exposed as the abandoned kid who’d grown-up in shelters.

Strange though… when she opened her eyes and returned them to Steve Carlson’s handsome face, she sensed his remark was meant as a compliment and not a reminder that she lacked James’s pedigree. It was like he saw her.

Her. Not James’s luxury-model second wife.

Still, his manners were disgusting. Even store-owner-janitors should know how to behave. Snooty type. Who was he to say that to her? She was a potential client for heaven’s sake.

Victoria stood to leave. She was sick and tired of people voicing their opinions about her and her late husband’s disparate lineage. She’d been bullied and belittled since the day she’d become engaged. “You don’t know me well enough to analyze me, Mr. Carlson.” She kept the annoyance out of her reprimand. The rich had taught her that cool disdain wounded more deeply than anger.

Steve grimaced, rubbed his jaw, and then stood to face her, his expression sheepish. He waved her back to her seat. “Please. I’m sorry I offended you. I’m a friend. Really. We’ve gotten off on the wrong foot.”

He ran a hand through his hair and his bicep bulged with the movement. Victoria’s gaze followed the lines and curves of sinew and muscle and took in the military tattoo peeking from the hem of his tee shirt.

She resisted the images that teased her dormant libido, and brought her eyes back to his face. Damn. That didn’t help. Why did this annoying man have to be so good-looking? Her attraction to him only made her feel guilty, like she’d betrayed James’s memory. Widowhood came with a unique set of baggage.
