Launch and Release Day

It's Release Day! Not just for me, but for the Candy Hearts Romance Series from the Wild Rose Press.
I'm privileged to share my release day for SECRET ADMIRER with Emma Kaye and Jana Richards today.

Andi’s new to town and looking for a fresh start in the dating department. She’s attracted to the guy she sees each morning, but begins flirting via text with Garrett, a friend of her new co-workers. Despite many attempts and determination, she misses opportunities to introduce herself to Cute Coffee Shop Guy or actually meet Garrett in person. With Valentine’s Day approaching she succumbs to the sugar rush of Candy Hearts and when ‘Secret Admirer’ continues to appear in the messages, she takes it as a sign to decide which guy is her real Secret Admirer.

It's Valentine's Day, and candy heart sayings mock Drew Engledown's lonely state. He wants more in his life than work, but hasn't met anyone he can imagine spending his life with. When he puts his own life at risk to save a friend, he's sent back in time to Regency London and mistaken for a murdered earl. Has he been given a chance at love with the earl's beautiful widow, or will he suffer the same fate as the previous lord?
When her husband's heir lays claim to all she once owned, Lady Engledown is left nearly destitute. So she doesn't know whether to be relieved or angry when the earl returns but claims he's not her husband. Could he be telling the truth, or is he toying with her? She doesn't know what to think of this man who is so different from the husband she never loved. Can they find happiness together, or will this man she comes to love leave her worse off than before?

Ally's Review: 
Time travel to discover your true love? Worked for Drew.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, Drew Engledown is facing another lonely holiday until fate steps in – or plows into him. Waking in Regency England and in the arms of the widow Lady Engledown , Julia, he is mistaken for her murdered husband. After much deliberation he assumes the dead earl’s persona and is soon doing a much better job at being Julia’s husband than his predecessor.
I loved the development of Drew and Julia navigating the kinda-married situation they find themselves in and the awkward positions that two hundred years creates. As Drew attempts to fit into society and help save her family’s finances, Julia tries to understand the new sensation of desire Drew has presented.
When Drew is faced with returning to present day – well I’m not giving that away. You’ll enjoy finding out as much as I did.

Renata Cabral needs to hide for the weekend. Her cousin’s Valentine’s Day wedding means she’ll face embarrassing questions from her large, extended family. Questions like “Why aren’t you married yet?”  Since the breakup of her last relationship, she’s not ready to answer that question. She invents a work-related excuse and escapes to a friend’s lakeside cottage.

Noah Brownlee has been hiding for two years. But now he’s ready to come home and mend his broken relationship with his brother. When a friend offers the use of his lakeside cottage, Noah arrives in the middle of a blizzard with his English Mastiff, only to find the place is already occupied. With her big brown eyes and quirky sense of humor, Renata stirs feelings he thought long dead.

As the blizzard rages, the candy hearts predict love. Can Valentine’s Day work its magic between them?

Ally's Review: 
Can a big, slobbery dog be part of a love story? He can when he’s Spike - Noah Brownlee’s English Mastiff who falls just as quickly for Renata Cabral as his master.
When Noah and Renata find themselves unintentionally riding out a snowstorm at a mutual friend’s cabin they discover they have more in common than just a desire to escape Valentine’s Day. Both are avoiding a painful part of their past, but as their love grows along with their desire they realize moving on will be easier with each other’s support.
I really enjoyed the development of the story and discovering the characters’ backstory as they became closer. The attraction and tension between the two was believable and kept me turning the pages. Spike added comic relief and became an integral aspect of Noah and Renata’s relationship.
