Marlowe Banks, Redesigned by Jacqueline Firkins

MARLOWE BANKS, REDESIGNED by Jacqueline Firkins @jfkillsdarlings Review: ✨✨✨✨✨ Perfect for fans of BEACH READ by Emily Henry! Marlowe Banks has moved from NY to LA to leave behind a fiancé and a stage failure. She’s a personal assistant to a costume designer and by chance, ends up in a small bit on a TV show with sexy actor Angus Gordon. Sparks fly on and off screen, but Marlowe doesn’t want to be in the spotlight…she wants her costuming to be. Misunderstandings, internet trolls, and social media threaten their budding relationship. It’s a meet-rude instead of a meet-cute, but the chemistry between them sizzles. I loved the vulnerability and growth of the characters beneath their costumes and the faces they show to the world. I also adored how Marlowe dealt with her ex and how she learned to love herself. Sweet, steamy, and completely satisfying. #MarloweBanksRedesigned #JacquelineFirkins #stmartinsgriffinsbooks

Something in the Heir

  SOMETHING IN THE HEIR by Suzanne Enoch Rating: ✨✨✨✨✨ An original premise, charming prose, and hilarious characters make this story a positive delight. “Are there any more little blessings I should know about?” Mrs. Pershing informs her husband that she has made up not one, but two children! To keep her estate Emmeline married her friend Will, but they didn’t have an obligatory child in five years. So she made some up. Her grandfather, the Duke who owns the estate, insists that she bring her children. The Pershing’s try to borrow children from neighbors but eventual are forced to get some from an orphanage. The romance is subtle and sweet, but secondary to the family plot. The focus is on humorous antics and heartwarming family time as two partners, who are almost strangers, learn how to be parents. #SuzanneEnoch #SomethingInTheHeir #StMartinsPress

Author Interview: B. R. Myers

  A Dreadful Splendor releases today! 1. Do you believe in ghosts? And/or have you ever attended a séance?   I don’t believe in ghosts, but I do when I wake up in the middle of the night and hear a noise   downstairs. We had a Ouija board when I was a kid, Parker Brothers sold them, it only seemed to come out during sleepovers. The planchette always spelled out something like ‘fart’ or ‘poop head’, but of course everyone denied interfering with the spirit world. They really should reconsider calling it, “I’m not pushing it, are you pushing it?” 2. Who is your favorite character in the book and why? Genevieve. She came to me completely fleshed out with a backstory and a trunk full of coping mechanisms and grief. Still, she is one determined character with a lot of sass. I could have easily written it from another character’s point of view, but it wouldn’t have been as effective. 3.What made you choose Victorian England as the setting for your book? Genevieve came

Book Review: A Dreadful Splendor by B. R. Myers

  Out Tomorrow! A DREADFUL SPLENDOR Review: 5 STARS The Dreadful Splendor was splendidly dreadful! With séances, ghosts, a creepy estate by the ocean, and lots of twists! I read it in one sitting. I could not put it down! I was sure that the murderer was each character at different parts of the book. Jenny was a multifaceted character that became more developed in every chapter. I longed to know her secrets! Author B. R. Myers also spins a slow burning romance that has me melting. It’s the perfect pick for fans of Victorian history, mysteries, and Gothic romance. Description:  In this spectacularly imaginative and ghoulishly fun Gothic murder mystery brimming with romance, betrayals, and chills, a fake spiritualist is summoned to hold a séance for a bride who died on the eve before her wedding, but as nefarious secrets are revealed, the line between hoax and haunting blurs. Be careful what you conjure... In Victorian London, Genevieve Timmons poses as a spiritualist to swindle wealthy
