Welcome Birthday Guest Andrew Grey!

Birthdays for me haven’t been a big deal in quite a while. Dominic always gets me a card and a gift. Most of the time I get a phone call from my dad and my brother and sister. That’s about it. Maybe that’s a blessing at my age. I prefer a quiet day without a lot of fuss. However, I will say that the highlight of my birthday is the meal. Dominic always makes something special for me. One year he made strudel and another he made me a cake with so much chocolate I swore I was going to end up in a coma. God that was so good. I never know what he’s going to come up with, but it’s always fantastic. One year though, we were on a cruise over my birthday and I didn;t get my special Dominic dessert. But the waiter made up for it with a bottle of champagne and a dessert from the captain’s table. That was pretty cool. (If they really wanted to make it memorable they could have let me steer the ship. Costa Condordia – well maybe not..)

Happy Birthday Amber!!!!!

He doesn’t know that home is where his heart will be….

Firefighter Tyler Banik has seen his share of adventure while working disaster relief with the Red Cross. But now that he’s adopted Abey, he’s ready to leave the danger behind and put down roots. That means returning to his hometown—where the last thing he anticipates is falling for his high school nemesis.

Alan Pettaprin isn’t the boy he used to be. As a business owner and council member, he’s working hard to improve life in Scottville for everyone. Nobody is more surprised than Alan when Tyler returns, but he’s glad. For him, it’s a chance to set things right. Little does he guess he and Tyler will find the missing pieces of themselves in each other. Old rivalries are left in the ashes, passion burns bright, and the possibility for a future together stretches in front of them….

But not everyone in town is glad to see Tyler return….

Welcome Birthday Guest Lane Hayes!

My Favorite Birthday- Lane Hayes

November is one of my favorite months of the year. The crisp air, colorful autumn leaves, and the beginnings of ‘holiday fever’ are hard to beat. Oh yes, and it’s my birthday month too! In fact, I celebrated my birthday a week ago in Hawaii with my husband. I traded crisp air and autumn leaves for the tropics and palm trees and had a fabulously relaxing time. This wasn’t a milestone year for me and though our trip was wonderful, I wouldn’t say it was my best birthday ever. That honor goes to my fortieth.

My husband planned a surprise party…say no more. LOL He’s not the type who keeps secrets well. He dropped hints like, “we have an (out of the blue) formal work function to attend and you’ll probably want to dress up for it” and then asked if I’d gone shopping for the occasion. This was from the guy I have to remind at least twenty times about simple calendar events…like dinner with a neighbor. “Wait, you didn’t tell me about that” is a common phrase in our house. So yes, the every other day reminder tipped me off for sure. He might not have pulled off the ‘surprise’ part well, but the party itself was epic. He rented a huge space at a local museum. There was art on the walls (one of my personal passions) and the room was full of music, laughter, and my favorite people.

I’ve had lovely birthdays where the gift or the cake or the place I celebrated made it seem memorable, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become a bit more sentimental. Shiny toys and cakes can be amazing, but spending a special occasion with the people I love most can’t be topped. I can’t remember any of the presents I opened or what kind of cake was served that night, but I’ll always remember how my cheeks hurt from smiling so hard and how grateful I felt to have so much love in my life. And with every year that passes, I realize that love, friendship and gratitude are truly the most important gifts.

Happy birthday, Amber! May your day be filled with all of your favorite things and people…and cake. Lots of cake!

Best wishes,

Lane Hayes xo

Welcome Birthday Guest RJ Scott!

Hi guys!

I’m RJ Scott, and I’m so happy to take part in Amber’s birthday bash! The theme for this post is my most significant birthday, and that isn’t an easy one to think on. I love my birthday, it’s early September and it’s right as Fall starts to happen, and as that is my favorite season I’m super happy!

I guess my most significant birthday was when I turned 50 a couple of years ago. The celebrations went on for days, LOL, weeks even. I celebrated with family, friends, even had a weekend at a hotel with other authors. I felt truly loved by a whole bunch of people, and absolutely loved it all. To me 50 is just a number, inside I’m still in my thirties 🙂

My newest series is the Single Dads series, starting with Single as book 1, Today which is book 2, and with book 3 out on 22 November.

You can win a $10 gift card if you comment below with one of your favorite birthday memories, or if you just say hello 🙂 (Giveaway closes on November 12th)

HUGS, Rj xxxxx

Blurb:

Reeling from the painful rejection of a man he thought he loved, Asher is left holding the baby.
Ash wants a family, and is determined to continue with a surrogacy he’d begun with his ex. Bringing baby Mia home, he vows that he will be the best father he can be. Nothing in this world matters more to him than caring for his daughter, not even accidentally falling in lust with the doctor next door. Challenged by his growing attraction to Sean, and confronted by painful memories of his family, Ash has to learn that love is all that matters.
When ER doctor Sean moves in with his friends next door to sexy single father Ash, he falls so quickly it takes his breath away. The sex they have is hot, but Ash is adamant his heart is too full with love for his daughter to let anyone else in. Why is Sean the only one who sees how scared Ash is, and how can he prove to his new lover that he desperately wants the three of them to become a family?

Thanks so much for having me over! Happy Birthday, Amber!

Welcome Birthday Guest MA Church!

Hey! My name is M.A. Church, and I just wanted to start off by saying happy birthday to Amber!

So, I guess the birthday that sticks out the most in my mind was my fiftieth. Turning fifty was pretty significant, LOL! It just so happened my daughter made a point to come home for my birthday. She lives in the Austin, Texas area, so that alone would’ve been enough. But oh no, my family had plans, apparently. That evening, Courtney and her dad decided they wanted to go to Sportsman’s Warehouse (They are both bow hunters). So, off they go, and I stayed home.

Well, and hour or so later, Courtney and the hubby returned… with Blake (our son) also in tow. They’re pushing this HUGE box through the house—which is unwrapped, of course. The hubby tends to be kinda last minute on shopping. Anyway, it’s a 50” TV!

That was something I’d been wanting for the bedroom since my vision isn’t that what it used to be.

After screaming and jumping up and down—because hey—50” TV, Blake gives me a black gift bag with fifty individual Hershey Kisses in it, along with a fifty dollar gift card to Chili’s that was also in a black envelope.

Courtney then whips out this super large cupcake with the numbers 5 & 0 on it—in black, of course—along with another, you probably guessed it by now, fifty dollar gift card to Bath & Body Works.

It was only then I figured out every gift had something to do with the number fifty. *Shakes head* Swear to God, this family of mine!

For my giveaway, I’m offering up a copy of Trouble Comes in Threes. It’s the first book in my Fur, Fangs, and Felines series.

Welcome Birthday Guest Kris Jacen!

Hi everyone! First, a blessed birthday to Amber. I hope the coming year brings you lots of joy and happiness.

When I thought over the*clears throat* many birthdays I’ve had, the one that always comes to mind is

one from when I was really young – maybe five or so? You see, I’m a Christmas Eve baby. Every year my nana (my dad’s mom) would make sure that I had a birthday cake on my day (we celebrated it earlier in the month with cousins after the church Christmas play).

Anyway, this particular year Frosty the Snowman was on the TV. This was back when it was only on ONE night and if you missed it? Oh well. All
I can remember is running and jumping into my grampy’s lap and yelling “Frosty tolded me Happy Birthday!” My grandfather must have thought I was nuts. But as that was many moons ago and it’s still making me smile? Yeah, I’ll go with that
being my most memorable birthday.

I’m currently working on BE WITH ME, the story of Rafe (Mooney) and Debbie Luna (yes, I’m writing a m/f but dang they deserve their story after being major secondary characters in most of my books). My latest release came out in May (ALWAYS WITH ME). It’s the stories of my twins, Cal and Cam Luna (Mooney and Debbie’s sons).

Amazon

Calvin and Camden Luna — why yes, their dad is a big baseball fan— have moved around the world with their parents. Their father has been in the military since before they were born. Proud of their father and all he has done, neither of them is sure the military is for them. Haven’t they given up enough already? Cam is a fantastic baseball player and Cal loves the science of everything.

Tristan Nolan and Maddy Holt both grew up as military kids too, but neither of them moved around as much as the twins. Tris has always wanted to follow in the footsteps of those before him and make a career in the military; Maddy wants to save the planet and capture the heart of Calvin Luna… if he’d only open his eyes. Can Tris be himself — out and proud — and serve and protect his country? Can he end up with the one he’s loved for as long as he can remember?

What can happen when you grow up a military brat with the close ties from your fathers’ close friends and their families? Find the love of your life almost from the start? Or find out that maybe you’re all too close to have anything else?

Kris Jacen grew up just north of Boston, Massachusetts, met her soldier in high school but didn’t marry him until almost ten years later. She moved around with him and their daughters (born in two different states thanks to the Army) for the first 19 years of their marriage (they celebrated their silver anniversary in 2018) before settling in western New York.

She has been the Editor in Chief and Formatting Director for ManLoveRomance Press and its imprints since January of 2008 and has never looked back. Working with the amazing authors at MLR has allowed her to both hone her editorial skills and indulge her inner fangirl. She also acts as editor, mentor and sounding-board for newcomers which lets her “pay-it-forward” and help authors realize their dreams.

You can find out more about Kris on her website www.krisjacen.com.

Giveaway: Kris is doing a giveaway of a copy of ALWAYS WITH ME (my latest) or WAIT FOR ME, which is the first in the series.
