"Tijan is the queen. Angst here, a twist there, and I’m always captivated ‘til the very end." ―Penelope Douglas,
New York Times Bestselling Author


Fallen Crest Campout, an all-new must read Fallen Crest and
The Crew series crossover novella by New York Times
bestselling author Tijan, is out now!

BOOK EXCERPT for FALLEN CREST CAMPOUT by Tijan
Excerpt: 


“I don’t like this.” 

A hand went to the back of my chair, a head popped up between our two front seats, and that was announced. Mason was in the driver’s seat and I was in the passenger seat. Logan looked at each of us. He was wearing a distinct frown-smirk combo on his face as he said his piece. 

Problem was, he’d been saying it since we left Boston, since we landed in California, and since we’d been in the rental and driving three hours past Fallen Crest. 

It’d been said. It’d been heard. 

We were now at the part where we wanted to murder my brother-in-law. Or, correction, where I wanted to murder my brother-in-law. Mason was stoic and driving. He was able to get in the zone and tune Logan out. Taylor was sitting in her chair, reading on her phone. She had the whole tuning-out thing too. 

Not me. I was a mom, so somehow that meant I always had to be aware and alert, and now I was close to grinding my teeth and yelling for a Logan time-out. 

Five minutes in the back, please. 

Mason grunted. “Tough shit.” 

Nice. Maybe he wasn’t so ‘tuned out.’ 

I looked at Taylor. “Can you keep him under control?” 

She glanced up from her phone. “You know the answer to that question. You’ve known him longer.” 

Touché. 

I’m not sleeping with him.” 

Taylor just laughed. “Shouldn’t have said that. He’s probably refraining from twenty different inappropriate jokes as I’m talking.” 

Ahem.” Logan gave us both a look. “It’s because I love both of you—in different ways—and respect both of you that I’m not touching that. But Sam…” Logan leveled me with an aggrieved look, his eyebrows raised. “Can you watch what you say? Old Logan would’ve been all over that one, and can you imagine the innuendos?” He gestured to himself, his face tight. “But I’m here. Being polite—” 

“Sorry. I thought since you’re older and in law school, you’d be more mature.” 

“It’s like you don’t know me at all.” But he was grinning. 

“Logan.” Insert some assertive tone here. I had to make my point. “We got a babysitter for the weekend. I got permission for a full weekend off from my training. Your brother is on a much-needed vacation before football training starts, and I have been needing Heather time even though I saw her a few weeks ago.” 

I had a point. What was it? “So shut it, okay?” 

That was my point. 

“All I’m saying is that we were supposed to do the yacht. Nate and Matteo were up for it. Now suddenly we’re doing a camping thing. I’m not clear on the why?” 

Mason glanced into the rearview mirror. “It was Nate’s idea. He said something about family research. What’s your issue? You like camping.” 
“That’s when we were young. We did stupid shit back then like. We’re old now. If we go camping, I prefer it to be on things like yachts. Or we stay in a mega-mansion and our camping is napping by the pool. I like that type of camping.” 

Taylor frowned at him. “Babe.” 

He shot her a look, frowning slightly, but his face softened. He reached out, touching her leg. “It’s nothing. I’ll get over it.” 

Good. 

That was settled. 

Two minutes later, it wasn’t.



BOOK BLURB:

Sam and Mason return to Fallen Crest for a camping trip.
They head north, meeting up with a few friends from Roussou and enjoy a night of booze, some leapfrogging, and there’s a small therapy session to air out some tension in the group.

Empty chair, anyone?

MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 5 Stars!
CLIFFHANGER: No

BOOK BLURB:
Daisy:

You’re probably wondering what I’m doing hanging off the edge of London’s tallest building, The Shard.

I can explain. Kind of. Because I’m not even sure who the invitation came from to join the Dare Club.

But I’ve narrowed it down to two men:

Max Marquis, a tall, gorgeous Brazilian lawyer with an accent to die for and Nick Banham, a dashing English athlete who may have just broken my heart. Their reasons? Could be love. Could be a desire to watch me suffer. Or maybe those two are the same.

Oh, yeah, and they’re half brothers.

And I’m in love with both of them.

So you see, thrill-seeking is just what I might need to sort this all out.

If I don’t fall to my death first.

But if there’s one thing I’ve learned, when it comes to love, you have to hang on tight.


Maximum Dare is the STANDALONE contemporary romance novel from Vanessa Fewings, USA Today Bestselling Author of the The ICON Trilogy.


REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.


5 Stars!

The Review:
I absolutely loved this read! From the enticing cover to the gratifying last page, this whole book is filled with swoon and fun. I couldn’t get enough, and when I finished the last word, I was left with an insatiable desire to start it all again.

The characters were vibrant and real. The banter was undeniably delightful. The chemistry was impassioned and tension-filled. The story was perfectly paced. Maximum Dare is a must-read romance!

Story/Characters...
Daisy Whitby is a twenty-three-year-old shopgirl who dreams of more. She’s sweet and loving if not a bit introverted and shy. And she’s just been dumped. It was so unexpected, she’s left in a tailspin of “what did I do wrong?” and “how did this happen?”. Now she’s on a reckless mission to expose her ex’s new girlfriend to be the shallow boy-hopper she believes her to be. There’s only one thing standing in her way - the irresistibly hot older brother who came out of nowhere... and who she can’t stop thinking about.

Max Marquis is an extremely successful lawyer in Rio. He has taken time away from his busy schedule to visit his home in England, set to have some quality family time, and a bit of relaxation. But what he finds instead is a bright-eyed, sweet and adorable girl left heartbroken by his younger brother. There’s an immediate connection and sizzling chemistry... and a whole lot of complications in between.

A sexy older brother, a willful girl, and an invite to Dare Club, where you are encouraged to look past your inhibitions and explore your hidden wild side.

From the moment Daisy and Max have their meet-greet, we were taken on a fun-filled road trip of lighthearted entertainment and slow-build romance. Daisy’s desperation and life-affirming dares both broke my heart and had me laughing out loud. The situations she puts herself in were awkward and hilarious. She was beautiful and batty all at the same time. I simply adored her! Max was patient and kind, sexy and cuddly. I loved this man! And the story itself? Just a perfect, PERFECT romance!

The Wrap Up:
Every time I dig into a Vanessa Fewings book, I find the meaning of “indulgence”. She writes beautifully, taking the reader on an incredible journey with vibrant backdrops and colorful characters. This authors books ALWAYS intoxicated and beguile me.

Maximum Dare is an upbeat, addicting romance loaded with witty intelligent banter, playful, flirty characters and a sweet, well-written truly romantic story.

Read it. You’ll love it, too!

NEW RELEASE - MY FAVORITE SOUVENIR by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland is NOW LIVE!


MY FAVORITE SOUVENIR IS LIVE!

A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


BLURB...

My planned trip for two unexpectedly turned into a trip for one.  Rather than let my breakup get me down, I packed my bags and decided a week at a luxury resort was just what I needed.

But one calamity after the next, and suddenly I was stuck without a hotel room, along with a few hundred other people.

It looked like my fancy vacation was about to turn into me sleeping on the hotel lobby floor.

Until I overheard a gorgeous man pretending to be someone he wasn’t in order to steal a reservation from a guest who hadn’t shown up yet.

When I realized there were two rooms, instead of calling him out, I pretended to be his sister. That’s how the story of “Milo and Maddie Hooker” began. 

We were the Hookers.

My depressing trip quickly made a U-turn into an adventure.  
My fake brother spent the next few days showing me around his hometown. When it was time to leave, neither of us really wanted to go yet. 
So, instead of flying back to our respective homes, we ventured on a road trip. 
At every stop, we’d pick up souvenirs.

But as hot as our chemistry was, we never crossed the line.
Milo knew I’d just come out of a tough relationship and didn’t want to mess with a vulnerable woman.

So instead, at the end of our trip, we made a pact to meet again in three months.

It was always my intention to meet him.
But when I got back home, reality hit in a big way.
And I worried I may have lost my handsome stranger forever.
Was there a place for him in my future?

Or had the memory of him just become my favorite souvenir?

Excerpt Reveal for
MAXIMUM DARE by Vanessa Fewings

That was my in - my chance to warn him.

None of his mates from his football team were here. The only reason I’d found out about this party was because I’d seen Morgan showing off about the event on Facebook.

Turning up like this probably seemed a bit stalkerish – but trust me, this was about saving a man who’d once saved me…back when all I’d known was grief. This was me looking out for Nick now, making sure he didn’t blow up his life for a girl who could never truly love him. It was easy to see why she’d hunted him down. Nick was a rising football star destined to follow in his dad’s iconic footsteps.

Why did he have to look so adorable with his tousled dark blond hair and expressive grey eyes? Chiseled features made him stand out even in this freakishly good-looking crowd, along with his athletic physique. I was now entering the hating phase…the I-can’t-bear-to- be-in-the-same-room phase. Yet Nick still made my insides do a flip-flop. 

The last few weeks had been crushing in so many ways. The house we’d shared in Bermondsey was going to be sold. Moving out was inevitable because Nick was now living with Morgan in her Chelsea high-rise.

That girl was my opposite: Tall and blond and a first prize winner in the genetics lottery. I was a brunette with blue eyes who wore round-rimmed glasses – my look was more the girl next door. Not wild and sexy like Morgan, a woman who chased after endless fun and thrived on surprises.

Before she’d stolen my man, I’d followed Morgan’s make-up tutorials posted for and viewed by millions.  She had two speeds – partying fashionista or poolside babe.  

My speed was literally in reverse. There was no competing with a woman who was an expert at wooing men with her fake charm. And I’d never have the kind of money it would take to look like her. She indulged in cosmetic surgery to tweak imperceptible imperfections, giving her a flawless, airbrushed appearance that was hard to imitate. 

Nick was destined to become another “Most Hated” post on Morgan’s Instagram page after she’d tired of him and moved on. It was inevitable. That was her thing.

I couldn’t let it happen to him.

A few minutes alone with Nick and I’d be able to show him the evidence I’d found on Morgan’s social media pages to prove she was bad news. He seemed oblivious to the long list of exes mentioned in her blog posts – whimsical fancies who formed the fodder for her emotional breakdowns and at the same time garnered her more followers.

But even knowing all of this, I still hesitated – guilt for stealing that envelope niggling at my conscience.

Don’t do it.
Don’t lower yourself to her standards.

Rummaging around in my handbag, I retrieved the envelope ready to slip it back into Morgan’s Prada purse.

Oh, no!

They were leaving.

Hand in hand, Nick and Morgan waved goodbye to the crowd like they were a celebrity couple. My worried glare tracked their movement along the other side of the window.

Having not quite used up my stalker quota for the evening, I decided what the hell and grabbed my parka from the barstool, pulling it on. I followed them out and was hit with a blast of freezing cold January wind that stung my face.

A limo was waiting for them. A chauffeur wearing a grey suit opened the back door in a formal gesture so that Morgan could elegantly slide into the back.

Nick stopped short of climbing in behind her to pin me with a look of disbelief. My humiliation rose with each faltering step and I forced a weak smile to reassure him.

It’s just me, your ex. The girl with no life who refuses to let you go.

I gathered the courage to sprint forward, holding out the envelope. “She dropped this—”
SLAM!

My glasses went flying as I collided with a rock-hard male body. My cheek squished against a woolen coat as my body fell heavily against his, a flood of pheromones rushing through me from his heady cologne. It reminded me of endless nights filled with sordid pleasures. At first I was reluctant to look up, afraid I might be disappointed after that incredible preview…

“Hi, there,” he said, his tone amused, his accent seductively foreign.
Dazed, I peered up at his face. He was too tall to kiss, this dark stranger with a three-day stubble. His masculine scent stirred a forbidden desire deep inside of me and I couldn’t speak for a moment. He was so damn gorgeous. His temples revealed just a hint of grey – making me think he was in his thirties. His hypnotic brown eyes crinkled with kindness as he gave me a dazzling smile.

“Thank you?” I finally said. The response had made sense in my head.
He must have found it humorous, as I saw his full, kissable lips quirk up in a smile – a smile that suddenly faded as he glanced over my shoulder.

Someone from behind me gripped my arms and dragged me away from him, forcing me to trot on unsteady heels towards an SUV. I had no choice but to move in that direction, feeling dizzy as the world whooshed by.

My handbag slipped off my shoulder and landed on the ground as that someone then shoved me against the front of the vehicle, pushing me forward until my cheek pressed against the hard metal of the car bonnet. I tried to push myself up, but my hands were suddenly drawn behind my back and I was held down, incapacitated – and vaguely aware that the handsome stranger was watching.

My cheeks ablaze, I cringed at the thought that Nick was seeing this, too.
I lifted my head a little and saw Morgan climb out of the limo. She whipped out her iPhone and pointed it in my direction. 

The flash was blinding.



Blurb...
Daisy:
