Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

Sometimes the path to achieving life’s dreams can be a little rocky as depicted in this thought-provoking book ...

If there is anything I love in life, it’s a book with a dog as the costar. Puppies make romance sweeter, and the whole plot line so much better.

So, here are my top five favorite romance starring a four-legged companion. GOOD BOY by Sarina Bowen and ...

You didn’t say any of those things.” He remained silent, a confession of sorts, and she understood. “You didn’t say any of those things...

Welcome back to Fresh Fiction! Can you tell us a little bit about Fix Her Up and the new series it starts, Hot and Hammered? Thank you for having me! The Hot and Hammered series was inspired by a trip I took to Port Jefferson, Long Island. It’s got this rustic, small town vibe—right on the water—and I immediately wanted to write my local family of house flippers, the Castles. FIX HER UP is the youngest daughter’s story. She’s a birthday...
