My world ended the day I received an eviction notice for Lotus House Yoga. Teaching yoga is all I’ve ever known. I’ve been doing tree pose since the age of two. The studio is my home, my legacy. My mother and her best friend left Lotus House to me so that I could carry on spreading goodness and light to everyone who enters our door. Now I’m faced with the very real possibility that it will all go up in smoke…unless I can convince Grant Winters—the most ridiculously handsome and arrogant businessman I’ve ever met—to save not only my business but all those around it.
When I stormed into Grant’s office to beg and plead for a second chance at preserving what my family spent decades building, I had no idea how it would change my life.
A deal was made.
He’d visit the businesses he was planning to destroy and attend classes at Lotus House while I worked to change his mind. In exchange, I had to enter his business-first world of luxury, fast-talking men, and surgically enhanced women.
Turns out, I didn’t fit in... Then again, neither did he.
In the end, we were both enlightened.
Each of the books can be read as a standalone but are better read in order. No cliffhangers. Books are erotic romances written for mature audiences 18+

Montana Renegade by Ramona Flightner

Montana Renegade
Bear Grass Springs #4

Ramona Flightner
Historical Romance
Published in 2018

H/h - Warren Clark/Helen Jameson 
Setting: Montana, 1885.

Read in June, 2018
My rating:

                                                          [spoiler alert]

Bear Grass Springs is the newest series by Ramona Flightner and Montana Renegade is the latest installment. Even though, regrettably, I hadn’t been able to connect with the series like her previous series Banished Saga, I’ve been eagerly waiting for this one. Why you ask? Because this story has been in the making since the beginning of this series.

Whereas Banished Saga is set in the early 20th century America, Bear Grass Springs is set in the 1880s Montana. It’s also quite different that Banished Saga in the sense that each story ends in your traditional HEA. Yes, it’s still a clean romance and yes, we still get to know about a family and see them find love one after another but you get your traditional HEA, rather than a Saga where it spans years and includes new characters of new generations.

Book 1, Montana Untamed, introduces us to the MacKinnon brothers Cailean, Alistair and Ewan and their younger sister, Sorcha. They came to America from Scotland to settle down after they were forced from their lands. Cailean and Alistair are very successful livery owners, the only one in the small town of Bear Grass Springs. Ewan’s skills lie with carpentry, which the people of the town appreciated, so he’s been doing good as well. Both well-liked and respected among the people and, alongside Ewan, they’re also well sought after bachelors. There were certain people had seemingly been tripping over themselves to get the MacKinnons to marry their daughters. Cailean the eldest is what I’d call a grumpy bear; very serious and moody. Alistair, the middle brother, seemed like the one with a sound head on his shoulders. Cool and calm as they say. Ewan is the happy go lucky charmer who can be impetuous at times. His gambling habit is one of those things that his brothers do not approve of. Sorcha is still young and brash, she has her own burdens to bear too as you will read, but her brothers love her all the same.

5 Reasons Why I Love To Write

Hi Everybody!
    This is my first ever blogging tour, and it’s been great fun!  Today, I’d like to share with you ‘5 Reasons Why I Love To Write’.

    1.  I was born to do this.  Even when I was a little kid, I was making up stories.  I would play for hours out in the backyard with my cowboys and Indians.  In 5th grade, I had to write an autobiography for a class assignment.  It ended up being quite a few pages long, and I stapled it together to make it look like a real book.  There were certain questions we had to answer.  The last question was – What do you want to be when you grow up?  I answered – I want to be a teacher and I want to be a writer.  When I got it back, I found my teacher had written at the bottom of that page – Roberta, You can do both!  What an inspiration that was for me.  P.S.  I named my autobiography “ME”.

    2.  I am a history lover.  Doing the research for the books is great fun for me.  I love to travel and tour the parts of the country I’m going to write about.  Hiking in the Superstition Mountains in Arizona was awesome.  I love steamboat history and the Mississippi River.  The steamboat Sultana disaster at the end of the Civil War was the inspiration for my second book ‘Forbidden Fires’.

       3.  What’s amazing to me is how my characters always come alive in my mind and help guide the story along.  Some folks might say you’re crazy if you hear voices in your head, but if you’re a writer, you know you’d be lost without them.

    4.  It’s such a thrill to see my books on the shelves in bookstores and for sale on-line.  Just the thought that I’ve created a story someone wants to read, and will hopefully enjoy, is amazing to me – and truly an honor.

    5.  And finally, my most favorite reason I love writing my stories is that I am in control!  I can make my heroes do what I want them to do!  And I can guarantee that everyone lives Happily Ever After!

Published: June 19, 2018 by Avon Romance
When a man known only as Devil finds his way into her bedchamber and offers her his help in landing a duke, Lady Felicity Faircloth agrees. She might be a spinster, but she’s seen love in action and is willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that her future husband will love her beyond reason—even if it means she must make a deal with a man more dangerous than she could imagine.

Bastard son of a duke, and king of London’s darkest corners, Devil has made a lifetime of wielding power and seizing opportunity, and Felicity Faircloth is everything he needs to exact a perfect revenge. All he has to do is turn the plain little mouse into an irresistible temptress, set his trap, and destroy his enemy. If the girl is ruined in the process, so be it.

Except there’s nothing plain about Felicity Faircloth, and soon it’s Devil who is trapped…along with his heart.

Come back to me …

Luke remembers a few things. Just not his last name, or anyone he ever knew. He knows that he’s a supersoldier, genetically enhanced and loaded up with brain implants. He just escaped from a year-long hell of captivity, and to protect his family and friends from his tormentors, he blocked his memories. Now he needs those memories back, fast … or he and those he loves will die agonizing deaths.

Luke’s dangerous plan to reconnect with his past—and stay alive in the present—has drawn his enemies’ attention to the tough and sexy Dani LaSalle. He’s duty bound to protect the luscious beauty from the evil pursuing them, but he can’t control the scorching desire she awakens in him.

Dani’s strict routine has been trashed by Luke’s explosive arrival. This rock-hard slab of valiant, smoldering manhood appears out of nowhere, saves her life, spirits her away to his mountain lair and bewilders her with tales of sadistic researchers, enhanced assassins. Is this gorgeous, problematic sex god just plain crazy—or is she? But Luke can do things with his mind that are just as wild as what he can do with that body … and she can’t say no.

And there’s no time to wonder. As their passion burns hotter, Obsidian moves closer ... and Luke and Dani must place their lives and their hearts on the line just to survive …
