*Blog Tour* The Cowboy Gamble by Janelle Denison

The Cowboy's Gamble

By Janelle Denison

Genre: Western Romance

Tour Organizer: N K Author Services

Eleven years ago Seth O'Connor left Josie McAllister brokenhearted.  But now the sexy, smooth talking cowboy is on her doorstep, with a legal document that laid claim not only to McAllister property but to Josie, as well.

Learning that her father had gambled away not just the family ranch, but Josie's future on one game of cards has her fighting to safeguard her home, along with protecting her daughter from a past filled with painful secrets between her and Seth.  

But this cowboy is determined to claim what is now rightfully his, and Josie has a difficult choice to make.  She can either give up her home to her family nemesis, or marry a man she'd taught herself to hate….


I was gifted a copy by author for an honest review.

First let me start off saying I usually don't read these kinds of books but once I read what it was about I was intrigued.

Seth O'Connor and Josie McAllister's family have hated each other for as long as they can remember, but that didn't stop the two from falling in love. They thought everything was perfect till stories started flying, hearts were broken and hatred started.

11 Years later Josie's dad gambles and loses their land and his daughters future to the one person Josie never wanted to see again....Seth.

Seth shows up on Josie's door step with a legal document stating he is to marry Josie and share the land if she declines the land will be his. Josie has a choice to make!

What happens when your forced to be with the person who broke your heart? When the past and secrets catch up what will you do?

This was an amazing story and very well written!

5 stars!!

*Review* Taken and Bound by Nikki Faye

I was given a copy by author for an honest review.

I was so excited when I received this book I couldn't wait to find out what happens with Master J and Sylvia's story.

Taken and Bound is a raw, intense, dark read with a great story line. You get to see how a strong women can over come a tragedy, how a alpha male who gets everything has to make life changing choices.

Once again Nikki had me on an emotional roller coaster ride and I was loving every minute of it! There are parts in the story where I was crying, hot and bothered ;) or wanting to throw my kindle. Also by ending the book how she did she definitely knows how to keep you on your toes.

5 stars

About the Author


My name is Delisa Lynn, I grew up in Columbus Ohio. I’m currently residing in Western New York, where I work as a Medical Assistant. I love music, all generations, I do have a soft spot for country and 80’s hair bands. My favorite season is fall, I love the weather that time of the year, watching the leaves change and most of all being able to watch football. Go Bucks!! I am also a 49ers fan and New York Yankees fan. My favorite color is pink, not baby pink hot pink. I’m married to my high school sweetheart, we’ve been together going on nineteen years, sometimes I can’t stand him but I wouldn’t trade him for the world. I love you Jay. Our baby is a five year old spoiled Yorki named Sophie and yes she thinks she is human.
I’ve always had a passion for reading and writing. I have very vivid imagination and have always felt I should express it in writing. But I took a different career path, I worked in retail photography for sixteen years. Then I chose to work in the medical field. Last year, I decided I was going to follow my dream and write a novel. I never imagined it would turn into a series with eight books. I’m so glad it did, because I love it. When I’m not writing you can find me snuggled with my hubby watching a movie, or cuddled in the corner of the couch with my fur baby reading.
         I hope you all enjoy reading my books as much as I did writing them.


*Release Day* Song Bird Freed by Lisa Edward

The 3rd and final book in the Songbird Trilogy by Lisa Edward is now LIVE!!!

My name is Tara O’Connell, and I’ve always believed we control our own fate. That life is a journey with many roads, and the choices we make can shape our future.

Life has presented me with two paths and I’ve chosen one.

Was it right? Did I make the best decision?

After the uncertainty of the last twelve months, my destiny is now crystal-clear to me. I have a man I love more than words can express, a thriving business, and the best friends anyone could ask for. But just when I thought I could put the turmoil of my past behind me and move on, a life-changing phone call has rocked me to the core and turned my life upside-down once more.

To make matters worse, influences outside my control have taken hold and are shattering my perfect world.

But some things are worth fighting for.

Dreams can come true and I’ll do everything in my power to make them happen. But dreams can also be smashed into tiny pieces, and no matter how hard we fight or how hard we wish for something to be, sometimes with the hand we’ve been dealt, we can never win.
