"Some fires never burn out…

After ten years as America’s sweetest celebrity chef, Naomi Whitehouse is enjoying life out of the spotlight, back in her hometown of Summerville, Georgia. She’s opening a pastry shop with her sister, housesitting for her snowbird parents, and reconnecting with her roots. Life is good until she runs into her high school sweetheart, Jake Hansen, a sexy firefighter who gives her a reception chilly enough to freeze a forest fire. If Naomi wants her homecoming to remain all cupcakes and sugar cookies, she’ll have to win Jake over. But how can she earn his forgiveness when he won’t even speak to her?

When the girl who broke his heart buys a month of dates at the firefighter’s Hunk-for-a-Month fundraiser auction, only honor keeps widower Jake Hansen from backing out of the commitment. He won’t let the firehouse down, even if it means enduring a torturous month with Naomi Whitehouse. And Jake knows being close to Naomi again will be torture. Even after all these years, she still gets to him…not that he intends to let her know it. He’ll be civil, honor his obligation, and with any luck Naomi will tire of playing small-town pastry chef and Jake will never see her again.

But as the month passes, Jake and Naomi discover some fires never burn out. Will the heat between them be enough to melt away the pain of past mistakes, or is their second chance doomed from the start?"


"Jessie Evans gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write the sassy, Southern romances she always wanted to read.

She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a tree house in the boonies. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.

When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and wandering the woods, glass of wine and camera both in hand, on the lookout for Bigfoot.

A southern girl, born and bred, Jessie loves writing Southern romances with just the right amount of sizzle, and hopes you'll enjoy her stories set in the fictional town of Summerville, Georgia."

~NEW RELEASE & GIVEAWAY~ Torn from You by Nashoda Rose

Torn_from_You_ebook_amazon_smashwords_goodreads (1)Title: Torn from You
Author: Nashoda Rose
Genre: Romance, Mature


Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.

At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn't doing bossy, and I like sweet.

Then it all shattered.




I was alone and fighting to survive.

When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me. I was wrong.

*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Over 18 years.

This is a love story with some dark elements. No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream's story.

Nashoda Rose lives in Toronto with her assortment of pets. She writes contemporary romance with a splash of darkness, or maybe it’s a tidal wave. Her novel “Torn from You” is the first in the Tear Asunder series. When she isn’t writing, she can be found sitting in a field reading with her dog at her side while her horses graze nearby. She loves interacting with her readers on Facebook and chatting about her addiction—books.

~ANNOUNCEMENT~ This is the end. But Not Really.

Hi Lovelies!

So I’m sure many have noticed that I’ve been a bit absent the last two weeks and I want to take a moment and explain myself.

This year I decided that I would open my blog up and try blog tours and review request as a new way to be active in the blog community. And although it has been a wonderful experience I eventually started to feel like it probably wasn’t the best option for me. Tours and reviews started taking up much of my time and I was forced to finish books that I didn’t really want to. Some time during it all, I realized that reading books became sort of a job to me. Which has led to what I’ve been going through recently, stress. What was once my reprieve from my personal life chaos has now become part of the “issue”.  So for the last month not only am I dealing with personal issues but have also been struggling to open up a book (or power my kindle) and actually read a book.

Sadly, after some deep soul searching I’ve decided that for 2014 I will not be participating in any new blog tours, promotional tours, and will have a stricter review policy. I will still continue promoting books here and there, but will not, regrettably, continue on with any promotional companies. This in no way, shape or form is intended to upset or offend anyone. I have been able to participate in some amazing tours, reviewed and promoted some wonderful book, and have met some wonderful authors, readers and bloggers.  This is a decision that I have made in order to help me find what I feel has been missing recently. My passion for reading.  At a later time if that changes I will give it another try. But for now this is it.

This leads me to what I will be doing starting in January. I know that many of you can identify with the same problem I have as a reader. It being, having so many books, but so little time. Which leads me to having a bookshelf (both physical and electronic) full of books that have been neglected and pushed to the side. Because of that reason I have decided to take a shot at reading the books that have been sitting there and I haven’t been able to get too. For 2014 I’m going to start my “Clearing the Shelves” Challenge. The goal is to read as many as books as possible that are sitting on my bookshelf at home and on my Kindle. I am 100% sure I will not get to all my books but I am taking a shot at hopefully putting a dent in the stack. Now I know you are asking about new books that are released and if I will be reading those. Rest assure that if it is a book that I have been waiting to read or have an aspiration to read then it will be added to my reading list.

I know this post was pretty long and if you made it to this point thanks for taking the time to read it. 

I hope everyone has a HAPPY HOLIDAY and received everything they've wanted!!
