About the Book

Swansong; Allie McCormack
Adult; Romance; 261 Pages

Date published March 4, 2019

She’s everything he’s ever wanted…
Will she ever trust him with her secrets and let him in?

Swansong is a multi-cultural romance with a happy ever after.

Sarah Pendleton was born into a life of wealth and privilege, raised in the shadow of her famous soprano mother and her father, an equally famous composer. Shy and retiring, and treasuring her anonymity, Sarah left the world she grew up in to make her own life in the coastal town of Santa Barbara, California. 

A visiting University professor of Arabic literature from the small oil-rich country of Taqara, Khalid Al Mansour is the eldest son of a Taqaran diplomat and an independent American artist. He’s never settled down in one place, but that’s because he’s never found what he wanted… until one evening, he sees the lovely belly dancer at a small, smoky cafe downtown.

Khalid falls hard for Sarah… and she has feelings for him too…
But sometimes secrets have a way of tearing lovers apart.

Jenn’s Review

Allie McCormack comes through again with the premiere of her multicultural romance series, Sons of the Desert. Swansong is the story of Sarah and Khalid – a seemingly carefree dancer and the scholar-sheikh.

Sarah feels like an entirely different woman as she steps out onto the floor as Cassandra when she performs as a belly dancer for the first time. Cassandra is the antithesis to Sarah’s demure, shy personality, and the wild, sexy dancer has caught the eye of a wealthy Arab man.

Khalid knows, from the moment Cassandra catches his eye, that he must get to know the woman behind the veil, who captures the spirit of the music in her every move on the floor. But the woman eludes him, and when he finally manages to corner her and convince her to go to coffee with him, he discovers someone who can end his loneliness.

Sarah has secrets, though, and her upbringing has trained her well to play her cards close to the vest. Can they overcome her past to love all the way to forever?

Swansong is an adult, multicultural romance set in sunny Santa Barbara, California. Rich settings and beautifully rendered characters sit in a plot that will keep you turning page after page. This is book 1 in the series and a fantastic addition to Allie McCormack’s contemporary romance portfolio.

About the Book

Wishes in a Bottle; Allie McCormack
Adult; Romance; 439 Pages

Date published January 15, 2019

After 600 years, Julian is beginning to wonder if he will be trapped as a Djinn forever.

Wishes in a Bottle is a dreamy paranormal romance novel with a happy ever after and no cliffhanger.

Long ago, Julian DiConti was caught in a powerful spell binding him to a Djinn bottle, forced to grant wishes to each new owner. 

Three wishes… of the right kind… could free Julian of his bonds. 

Enter Alessandra Taylor, good Samaritan extraordinaire. She’d gladly free Julian from the spell if she could, but he isn’t allowed to tell her how — and one by one she’s driven to use the precious wishes to help others. 

Where will that leave Julian and the growing love between them?

Jenn’s Review

After a long absence from the writing world, Allie McCormack is back with a new paranormal romance series, Wishes and Dreams. Wishes in a Bottle is book 1 (book 2 is on its way), with a sweet, selfless heroine and a hot Italian djinn (yup, there’s a story there, but… SPOILERS!).

Julian has been living a not-quite-charmed life for 600 years after a spell went wrong. His last master was a cruel, selfish woman, who could have given just one wish to save a sick little boy. But when she makes her last wish out of spite and Julian is free again to continue his life, he breaks the rules to return to the dying boy’s bedside. There, while offering what comfort he can to the boy and his mother, Julian meets Alessandra.

As the pair grows closer, drawn together by grief, they are pulled closer by common purposes. So when Julian is pulled back into his bottle and the rules that bound him for 600 are turned inside out, he’s stunned to discover that Alessandra is his new master.

Wishes in a Bottle is a beautiful love story with warm-hearted characters (no overpowering male leads here). Tension and humor both run thick in the pages of this romance, and there are more to come!

Get Rich Lucky Bitch; Denise Duffield-Thomas
Adult; Business & Money; 305 pages

Hay House UK, July 24, 2018

It’s weird and frankly bewildering that the most talented women in the world are often the ones struggling to make fabulous money from their talents.

In Get Rich, Lucky Bitch!, you’ll get the tools and inspiration you need to go to the next level of wealth – whether you’re starting from scratch or itching to break through the million-dollar mark.

Finally, having had enough of under-earning, she dedicated a year to practising everything she knew about the Law of Attraction and applied it directly to money. As a result of all this work, her income doubled, then tripled, and in a few years she went from always being broke to being a successful entrepreneur. And in this book she teaches you how create the same shifts in your own life.

This book is the most practical manifestation book you’ll ever read. You’ll get day-to-day actions, inspiration, kick-up-the-butt real talk and loving advice. There’s no amount of money you could want that’s too big or too small. Denise will teach you to cut through years of under-earning and chronic underserving, fly through your income goals, heal your money wounds and break through old self-beliefs.

Jenn’s Review

Are you one of the THOUSANDS of women trying to better your family’s situation, but you just can’t seem to get ahead? Do you make progress, only to face more setbacks that put you even farther behind? I hear you, and so does Denise Duffield-Thomas, and she’s addressed the issue in her book, Get Rich, Lucky Bitch.

If you’ve never seen Denise speak, either in person or on social media, this book is a fantastic introduction to her warm, witty, and often blunt personality. She’s helped thousands of women improve their income, their businesses, and their lives with the five simple (but not always easy) steps outlined in this book.

I’ll warn you now: If you are brave enough to do the hard work in this book, you’ll start to see changes happening fast. But the work isn’t always easy, and at times, it can be downright painful to take an honest look at your life, take responsibility for your situation, and make the mental, emotional, or financial shifts needed to move past what’s holding you back.

In Get Rich Lucky Bitch, Denise walks readers through the five-step process to go from zero to wealthy. No dodgy MLM strategies, no get rich quick scheme. Just honest, straight to the point instructions, laced liberally with examples from her own life, and illustrations from her coaching clients and community.

Stop holding yourself back. Grab a copy of this book and change your world!

Jenn’s Review

Disclaimer: this book is intended for mature audiences only. It’s recurring themes of sexuality, BDSM, domination, and sexual slavery are not appropriate for minors.

Steamy sex, domination, bondage, control, and persistent love lay between the pages of this sizable novel by Kristen Ashley. Despite its thick and intimating size, I read through it in just a few days, totally engaged in the plot.

Sixx and Stellan come from backgrounds as opposite as they come. Sixx was intrigued by Stellan’s detached air from the moment she set eyes on him in the upscale BDSM club run by her good friend and mentor, Aryas. Stellan is par excellence when he works with submissives in the club, and Sixx has her own following as one of the club’s most sought after dominatrices.

Her biggest problem? Stellan is totally out of her reach, whether he’s attracted to someone else, or just seems to not notice her at all.

And then there’s her career choice, looming in the background. If she gets involved with anyone, it could end badly for them both.

So, when Stellan challenges Sixx’s preconceived notions about herself and him, the stakes are higher than ever. Can they both move beyond the traumas in their pasts to find love stronger than any bondage they’ve ever explored?

And when Sixx takes on a job that has her exploring another BDSM club, will the danger cost her the best thing she’s ever had?

This is my first Kristen Ashley, and it is definitely NOT your momma’s Fifty Shades of Gray. Deeply empathetic characters and rich settings set the stage for steamy romance and rough sex of all kinds.
