Romance may not be all that awakens while two best friends renovate a mansion rumored to be haunted.

If you kiss your best friend…

Halloween-loving Ren needs a new job. The only problem? The sole accountant opening in her small town requires construction experience, which are skills she lacks. Luckily, her best friend Leo— sexy, grumpy and completely off limits— is a construction hotshot. Their relationship is perfect as is, and, despite the intense chemistry, Ren refuses to ruin it with romance. Leo agrees to teach her, with one condition— she must live on site with him… and somehow survive the temptation.


You’ d better be sure…

Skeptic, sword-swinging Leo has loved Ren since she mistook him for a hardware employee in the plunger section two years ago. While he took his time winning her trust, she caged him in the friend zone. He’ s done hiding his feelings, and living together— working, sleeping, playing— at the Gothic mansion he’ s renovating will convince her that best friends make the best lovers.


It’ s meant to be forever.

Ren resolves to resist Leo, even if he bends every rule. Discovering the mansion’ s secrets— and lingering spirits, no matter what Leo claims— offers distraction enough. But with her defenses splintering, one kiss is all it takes to shatter every boundary, one night of passion to believe in happily ever after… and one crumbling letter of unrequited love to awaken ghosts forgotten. If Ren and Leo can’ t piece together the past for two lost souls, they might lose more than their hearts.


Before the lunch hour had hit on Monday, Karen visited human resources, applied her saved vacation and personal time off so she could work part-time. She used Tuesday and Wednesday to finish up bookwork. Thursday at noon, she ditched the office and packed her suitcase. She made it to the gravel driveway leading to the Granton estate in time for afternoon cocktails. The mighty iron gate leading to the mansion, locked every time she’d driven by before, was opened wide in welcome.

Excitement shivered through her as she drove through the gate, and the crowding trees offered new glimpses of the building’s pointed, Gothic gables. Diamond-paned windows flashed like waterfall spray in sunlight, liquid and magical. The woods opened up into a roundabout drive circling a cracked, dry fountain and she got her first full look at the mysterious GrantonHall.

“Wowza.” Karen parked her car beside Leo’s motorcycle and got out for an unobstructed view. She knew Leo had some serious cash, but this must have cost most of his hard-earned fortune. The steep roof and killer gables made it seem taller than two stories high, not including the attic. Walls tangled with ivy and made of gray stone added a foreboding beauty. It would make the perfect horror movie setting. She couldn’t hide a grin. Leo probably wouldn’t appreciate the irony.

A fractured stone walkway, hardly more than a trail, led through weeds and overgrown grass to the mansion’s front porch. An occasional sculpture weathered by years and negligence added a cemetery vibe. Matching faun statues flanked the entryway, lichen oozing from their eyes and leering mouths, ivy shackling their limbs.

She couldn’t wait to see what hid inside.

Suitcase in hand, she stepped toward the walkway and paused as a tremor rolled down her back. Maybe it stemmed from delight at discovering Granton Hall’s secrets. Maybe it came from taking a dive into the unknown.

Or maybe the man stepping from the porch and heading for her, his lopsided smile aimed at her, sparked her imagination to life.

Her pulse kicked into race-car speed. Best friend. Not made for jumping.

That was a total lie. There was no better specimen for a girl to jump on, grab ahold of and explore every wicked daydream with. Leo’s collar length hair would be perfect for her fingers to tangle in. Too many times to count she’d wondered if his mouth felt as soft as it looked. His body was sculpted from a foundation of sports and horseplay with four brothers, perfected by hard labor and the Hughes clan fighting with swords, light sabers or the weapon of the week. A few of those muscles tempted her from beneath his long-sleeved T-shirt and faded jeans. Had he been any other man, she’d be drooling.

But Leo wasn’t any other man. She had to keep things cool…somehow.

“Hey, Ren.” He took her suitcase and pivoted to face Granton Hall with her. “What do you think?”

Karen did her best to ignore the heat radiating from him, the scent of cedar and sawdust that always clung to his clothing and instead focused on the mansion before her. Shadows and secrets lurked in every corner, from the stained-glass windows frowning from the second floor to the moss-filled crevices in the stone walls. A black iron fence caged one side of the building, a subtle warning to keep out. No light glowed from within, as if Granton had already dismissed Leo’s presence as a passing memory.

“It’s everything I imagined—stark, arcane and breathtakingly Gothic. Splendidly chilling. I’m shocked you went in there alone.” She smirked sidelong at Leo. “Did you check under the stairs for demented clowns with chainsaws?”

“Yes,” he said, utterly serious, “I did.”

“Are you sure you’re up for living here?”

“With you to protect me, I’m feeling pretty good about my odds.” Hefting her suitcase as if it weighed no more than a goldfish, he led her past the statues guarding the entrance.

Karen followed, savoring each soft step of her boots on moss-fuzzed pavestones. It was a true testament of her willpower that she managed to drag her gaze away from Leo’s fine backside to the looming mansion. She slipped into the shadows cast by the gabled roof and shivered at the sudden cold. Dead leaves gathered in the corners of the covered porch, and dry husks of moths dangled from cobwebs in the rafters. A stand of pale toadstools crouched beside a faceless gargoyle.

“How long has it been since anyone lived here?” she asked, catching up with him as he reached the porch stairs.

“Decades. Careful of the steps.” He frowned as the planks creaked under his boots.

“How much you want to bet someone died here?” The wooden steps groaned and threatened to buckle beneath her, and she jumped to the safety of the porch. “Or better, was murdered?”

“How is being murdered better?”

“You know, restless spirits. Secrets in the attic. Monsters in the basement.”

“You watch too many horror flicks.”

“Not possible. You’re supplying popcorn, right?”

His lazy smile reappeared. “Movie buttered, caramel, chocolate dipped—I’ve got you covered.”

“I knew there was a solid reason why we’re friends.”

“So many reasons.” The blue of his eyes deepened. He held her gaze as he opened the front door wide. “After you, darling.”

Her pulse quickened, and she forced herself to focus on the vines and roses carved into the door before her imagination took over. She slipped her hands into her coat pockets to prevent any touching mishaps as she passed by. That didn’t prevent his heat from caressing her neck when her shoulder brushed his chest or the goosebumps on her arms. She crossed the threshold into the mansion, and electricity tingled through her, as if she’d shifted between one world to the next.

About the Author

 Once upon a time, a girl with flat hobbit feet dreamed of adventures in the woods with an elven hero, fighting off orcs and saving magical rings. All grown up now, C.J. Burright resides in Oregon (at least she got the trees). While she faces her duties at the law office day job, she avoids writing legal thrillers and instead turns toward romance—contemporary (sometimes with a supernatural flair), paranormal or fantasy. With a 5th Dan Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, it’s no surprise she prefers feisty heroines who aren’t afraid to jump into the fight. Her slivers of spare time are spent working out, gardening, playing the latest Assassin’s Creed, and rooting on the Seattle Mariners, always with music. She shares a house with her husband (not elven, alas, but a fine alternative) and a devoted cat herd while missing her daughter from afar. C. J. is represented by Brittany Booker of The Booker Albert Literary Agency.

Book Tour and Excerpt – Destiny Lives On FairHaven Street by CJ Hudson.

Contemporary Romance

Date Published: October 9, 2022

Publisher: Mindstir Media

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


His abusive family tore him away from her. Would destiny be enough to bring him back?

At ten years old, Chris didn’t have good looks, a caring family, or a bright future. But what he did have for three years was the love of Danielle, his beautiful neighbor on Fairhaven Street who showed him a glimpse of a life he desperately wanted.

To escape his abusive father, Chris was forced to move out of state with his mother to the icy hills of Michigan. All he could leave Danielle with was half of a heart-shaped pendant and a promise that he would one day return for her. To have any chance of getting her back, he had to end over one hundred years of abuse in his family, something his family claimed he was destined to carry on. All he had to keep him going was his half of the pendant, which tarnished over the years from his refusal to take it off.


Destiny Lives on Fairhaven Street is a touching memoir from author C.J. Hudson of his eight-year journey of preparation to return to the love of his life. Written to his twin sons, his story is a testament to the power of devotion and proof that the life you’ve always wanted is possible if you never give up.

Book Excerpt –

Book Title: Destiny Lives on Fairhaven Street

Excerpt Pages and Chapter: Pages 101,102; Chapter 14: “This Used to Be My Playground (by Madonna)”


“Change had begun, and when the time was right, I would return for the one person I loved. I didn’t just make a promise to Danielle. I made a promise to myself. I would prove my father wrong. I didn’t need him. I’d be my own father if I had to. And I would earn Danielle’s father’s respect. And in the end, I would earn his daughter’s hand, finally free to live a life with her that previous generations of my family never knew

                When a man knows the love of an amazing woman, he will cross any mountain to win her back. If he can’t go over it, he will go through it. If he can’t go through it, he will move it. My mountain wasn’t my parents. It wasn’t Danielle’s parents, either. It was me. It was my family’s past. It had to end, and it would end with me. I would succeed where three other generations of my family had failed.

                As we crossed the state line, I opened the window and threw my hand into the sky, tossing the husk of my former self to the side of the road, leaving it to rot with the past. A new future had begun. And until I returned, a countdown would begin.

                A man who is determined alone is persistent, but a man who combines that determination with intelligence is inevitable.

                I love you, Danielle

2,699 days remaining….”

About the Author

When first looking at C.J. Hudson, the last thing one would expect him to be is a multi-award-winning romance author, but that is exactly what the bald-headed, barrel-chested disabled navy veteran is. His debut memoir “Destiny Lives on Fairhaven Street” was written in homage to his twin five-year old sons, telling of his eight-year journey where he ended 100 years of abuse in their family in the name of returning to the first woman he ever loved. Destiny was written entirely on an iPhone over four years, being re-written eight times, undergoing six full editing cycles and being rejected 138 times before landing at Mindstir Media. Destiny quickly became critically acclaimed and won over seven awards. C.J. resides in Pflugerville, Texas and enjoys a life spent with his wife and sons, all while living the very motto he plans on passing down to them one day: “the man you are destined to become is the one you choose to be.”

Book Review – The Keeper by Nina Black.

Book Details


Publisher ‏ : ‎ Bloodhound Books (31 Jan. 2023)

Language ‏ : ‎ English

Print length ‏ : ‎ 260 pages

Book Synopsis:

A series of bizarre and brutal murders is about to push a London police detective to her limit . . .

When a Jamaican bus driver is garrotted in the middle of the night, there is speculation that racism is the motive. But when the same grisly fate befalls an Asian man and then a white man, it becomes clear that a female serial killer with a different obsession is at work.

Still mourning her mother’s recent violent death, DCI Jo Pollitt of the Southwark London Metropolitan Police must now focus on this high-priority case. Even with the help of a pathologist, a profiler and publicity from a true-crime TV show, the culprit remains elusive. Pollitt takes emotional refuge in her relationship with Cilla, whom she’s known since childhood, but the stress, both personal and professional, keeps building.

However, when Pollitt learns a civilian has captured a video of the most recent murder, it reveals the police might be on the wrong track. As the case begins to unravel, Pollitt realises that everything she believed is now in jeopardy and time is ticking before the killer strikes again. . .

My thoughts…

The Keeper is set in the 90s and follows DI Jo Pollitt a senior investigating officer who is called in to investigate the death of a bus driver.  She is an interesting lead character, experienced and respected by colleagues 

The story is told from various viewpoints but mainly from the POV of DI Jo Pollitt and we follow her as she tries to find out who the killer is which turns out to be not at all easy as there are lots of twists and turns and possible red herrings along the way.

The Keeper is page turning from start to finish.  It will keep you gripped and keeps you guessing to the end.  The story flows really well, is well written and has great characters.  I feel the author has fully researched her topic.  The crimes are gruesome so if you are squeamish it might not be your kind of read.

Having said that I really enjoyed this book, it hooked me in from the start and kept me guessing until the end.  Several times I thought I had guessed who the killer was but each time it took another turn and I was back to guessing again.

I definitely recommend this book.  It is a great read and well worth reading.

I would like to thank Bloodhound Books for providing me with a free eArc of this book 🙂

Book Review – The Marriage Season by Jane Dunn.

The Marriage Season by Jane Dunn.

Book Details:

ASIN ‏ : ‎ B0B9643KW9

Publisher ‏ : ‎ Boldwood Books (26 Jan. 2023)

Language ‏ : ‎ English

Print length ‏ : ‎ 338 pages

Page numbers source ISBN ‏ : ‎ 1804835315

The synopsis:

In Regency England, marriage is everything. For young widow Sybella Lovatt, the time has come to find a suitable husband for her sister and ward Lucie. Male suitors are scarce near their Wiltshire estate, so the sisters resolve to head to London in time for The Season to begin.

Once ensconced at the Mayfair home of Lady Godley, Lucie’s godmother, the whirl of balls, parties and promenades can begin. But the job of finding a husband is fraught with rules and tradition. Jostling for attention are the two lords – the charming and irresistible Freddie Lynwood and the preternaturally handsome Valentine Ravenell, their enigmatic neighbour from Shotten Hall, Mr Brabazon, and the dangerous libertine Lord Rockliffe, with whom the brooding Brabazon is locked in deadly rivalry.

Against the backdrop of glamorous Regency England, Sybella must settle Lucie’s future, protect her own reputation, and resist the disreputable rakes determined to seduce the beautiful widow. As the Season ends, will the sisters have found the rarest of things – a suitable marriage with a love story to match?

My thoughts…

The Marriage Season follows widow Sybella Lovatt and her younger sister and ward Lucie as they travel to London for the ‘marriage season’ to search for an appropriate love match for Lucie.

Although this isn’t my usual taste in books as I am not really a fan of the Regency Period I decided I would give it a go as I do like historical romance and I am glad I did.

It is a lovely book set in the Regency Period and definitely a page turner.  It includes all the usual captivating characters who are engaging and believable. There is also plenty of scandal, drama and glamorous parties from the season that you would expect from that period.

I found it easy to read, authentic, atmospheric, well researched and well written and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I think The Marriage Season will appeal in particular to Jane Austen and Bridgerton fans and I highly recommend it.

I would like to thank BoldWood Books for the free eArc of this book 😊

Did someone say dance like no one is watching? Guess that’s the only way Tyler CAN dance now. Slip into the pages of the fun and feisty second book in the Rocky Mountain Romances series.

Tyler Carter has everything she dreams of—she’s the starring ballerina in a Cirque-du-Soleil type show, a splashy Las Vegas lifestyle, and there’s nothing tying her down. Until she injures her knee, that is.

Tyler flees to her family in the little mountain town of Independence Junction, Colorado, and pretends she’ll get better, until forced to realize the truth. And forced to confront her past when she smacks right into Patrick West, the architect restoring the historic Wilkinson house.

Their attraction quickly rekindles because of a one-night tryst they had the summer before—one neither of them wants to admit to!

But something else gets rekindled. A stalker sets their sights on Tyler and leaves shocking clues indicating they know exactly who Tyler is, and that they want her dead. Will Patrick, Tyler’s brother, and a retired police dog be able to keep Tyler safe?

Book 2 excerpt

Panting, Tyler braced herself, waiting to catch her breath. She hadn’t known working out with a punching bag would be so strenuous. And she was used to quite a bit from her own training as a dancer. Slowly, she lowered her arms. She could barely lift them. As she turned, her eyes fell on someone. An image of muscular arms around her waist and intertwined legs flashed before her inner eye. Heat shot through her body. Oh great. She was suddenly aware of scattered strands of hair that had come loose from her braid sticking to her sweaty face.

​“You!” she gasped.

​“I was thinking the same thing,” he answered. 

​Funny, she remembered the way he smelled, the sensation of his touch, but she couldn’t remember his name.

​“Pat,” he said, as though reading her mind. “Patrick West.”


​“Carter. I remember.”

​They looked at each other, memories from the summer flooding back. Along with the dark good looks and toned body, Tyler remembered he was an architect. He was planning the restoration of a historic house in the area. Which explained why he was still in town.

​He took off his jacket and sat on the floor. “I didn’t know dancers could work the bag,” he said.

​“I didn’t know either, but it’s great for blowing off frustrations.”

​He nodded. 

​She waited for a comment, but he said nothing, just waited until she slid down beside him, leaning back against the wall.

​“You a boxer?” she asked out of the blue.  

​“A little martial arts,” he answered. 

​“So this dance studio is now a dojo?”

​“You know the Japanese word for it.” He looked impressed.

​“I work in Vegas with dancers, stunt people, and every kind of physical entertainment professional from all over the world. Of course I know the term.”

​The slight, amused smile fell from his face. “If you need the space, I’ll find another place.”

The fascinating and quirky citizens of Independence Junction come back in Book 2 of The Rocky Mountain Romances series to show how small-town relationships can bring out the best and worst in people.

Heart-warming with a splash of Vegas glamour, Book 2 successfully combines a new-and-old mix of family and townsfolk in a pressure-cooker plot that never lets up on chuckles, suspense, and romance.

Is that a vintage RV— painted top to bottom with paw print-shaped polka-dots — driving into town? You can bet your pupper’s next bubble bath it is! Get ready to plunge into the pages of the third book in the always pet-friendly Rocky Mountain Romances series.

When Kathrina gets chased out of her Seattle apartment because of its no pets policy, she packs up her business, Kat’s for Dogs Mobile Grooming, and heads to the mountain town of Independence Junction, Colorado.

In Independence Junction, pets are welcome, the local diner is the hub of social life, and Sam, that good-looking guy Kat met last summer, just happens to still be around. But oh no! Sam turns out to be a professional hockey player with an ego the size of the biggest mountain in the state. Not only is Kat a little man-shy, but she has no interest in wasting her time trying to tame that wild one.

However, when injured dogs start turning up in the woods, Kat must find a way to help. Before she knows it, Kat is tangled up in the small town’s dark side. Will she rescue the animals? Will she accept Sam’s help? Will the townsfolk finally have enough with whoever, or whatever, is hurting their dogs?

Book 3 excerpt

It was a bright, blue-sky day and Kat chugged down the highway in her elderly but gently used recreational vehicle. The outside was painted white and polka-dotted with black paw prints. Electric-pink letters read: 

Kat’s for Dogs

Mobile Grooming

​Kat and her traveling companions had just crossed the border from Utah into Colorado and were bound for Independence. In more ways than one, Kat thought, trying not to recall the turmoil she’d left behind. 

​She fumbled for her cell phone and called a number that went straight to voicemail. Hi! This is Jasmine McArthy. If you are calling about classes at the yoga studio, please—

​Kat tapped her screen so the message cut off and started recording. “Hi Jaz! I’m just an hour away. I’ll call again when I’m entering town. Love you! Say hi to Pat for me.” She tapped End Call and brought up GPS again.

​A quick glance into the back of the RV showed her traveling companions, two large dogs, napping contentedly in their crates. 


​Distant thunder sounded in the distance.

​Both dogs lifted their heads.


​“Woof,” went the dogs.

​In a few minutes Kat was driving through snowflakes that got increasingly heavy the closer they came to the little mountain town. Wind gusted down from the rockies and buffeted the old RV. “Whoa, Nelly,” Kat said out loud. Nelly was the vehicle’s nickname. Half an hour later the snow drove harder and the wind rose to a howl.


​The little RV lurched left as Kat hit something invisible on the road under the snow. Nelly started to slide. The dogs yelped, and Kat took her hands off the wheel, hoping Nelly could snap out of it. But with a sickening crunch the RV slid off the road, half on the pavement and half in a ditch. The engine rattled and died. The dogs whined, then cocked their ears and made no sound. Only the wind wailed outside. 

​Kat sat in stunned silence. Beside her, the cell phone still had no bars of signal. She was too scared to cry.

​And then out of the cold and dark, a light shone. Was someone coming to the rescue? Kat’s heart leaped with hope. “I’m here!” she cried, hoping her voice would carry through the windshield. “Please help me, I’m here!”
