Hi everyone!! My publisher made the announcement that No Other Love will be available on Wednesday!! I’m so excited for this book and the entire series; not only because this is the Love, Life, & Happiness spin-off, but it’s a really good series! There’s so much drama happening between Kevin, Jennifer, and Carla; but once the story is over, you will know who you will want Kevin to be with. Will it be his wife Jennifer, or his college best friend, Carla? You will have to read the story to find out when it’s available on Amazon early Wednesday morning.

Here is the cover and blurb for the story:

Six Things You Need To Know About No Other Love

Hi everyone!! I’m pretty anxious to share with you all No Other Love, which is the spin-off to Love, Life, & Happiness. The book is done with the editor, but is waiting on the cover so the book can be released. Part 2 is also now with the editor, so will be released possibly once part 1 is available.

As mentioned in a previous post, the series will take place after Redemption, so it will be around 2017 to 2018.

To get you ready for part 1, here are a couple of spoilers so you all can figure out what is going on with Kevin, Jennifer, and Carla:

1. Kevin and Jennifer’s Marriage: In Love Always, everyone established that Kevin and Jen’s marriage was falling apart. The two cannot agree on anything and it’s affecting their relationship with their son, Thomas. Will the two be able to work out their problems before it’s too late?

2. Carla: Carla is introduced in Love Always as Riana’s classmate, but is later to be known as Kevin’s friend from college. When he sees her daughter, Cristina, at Riana and Shawn’s vow renewal, he gets the sense that Carla has not been honest with him. Are his suspicions right or should he let the past be in the past?

3. The Crew is Back: I love these group of characters! Everyone is back, except for two- Monica and Donnell. There is a reason for that, since Jayden and Zack will be getting their own series and the two will be heavily involved in their story. But they will be mentioned in part 1.

4. Jennifer: Although Jennifer was talked about in the LLH series, she never really interacted with anyone. There’s a reason for that. There’s so much going on with this character that at the end of this book, you will be wondering why Kevin even married her.

5. New Characters: Many new characters will be introduced, from Jen’s family, to her co-workers, Chad and Shanice, and Carla’s cousin, Mika. Carla’s ex, Calvin, is also introduced, which has a lot of interaction with Kevin and Jennifer.

6. Secrets and Lies: This series will still have the same feel as the LLH series, but with a bit of a twist. There will be a lot of OMG moments, from Jennifer and Marcus, to even Kevin and Carla. You will be on the edge of your seats to what is in store with these characters, especially with the ending.

There you have it. These spoilers should have you guessing to what might happen in part 1. Once the cover is created, then a release date will be announced. I will keep everyone posted once I know more info.

Until then, here is a little teaser to tie you over:

Book Blitz & Review: Loving Night by Brynette L. Turner

Loving Night Book Cover

Hi everyone!! Today, I’m very excited to share with you all Brynette L. Turner’s latest release, Loving Night! This is the second book in the Dream Catcher series, but you can read this story as a standalone (like I did). This book has everything an avid reader will enjoy: Romance, suspense, intrigue, and HOT chemistry among the main characters. It’s a story that will grab your attention with every page until the end of the story.



Chaz took a desk job at the FBI to protect the woman he loves from the psychic connection that pulls her into the middle of his dangerous investigations. Yet, when he is forced to lead another undercover assignment, she must be the one to keep him safe.

They think they understand how Stephanie’s predictive dreams work; but neither of them anticipates the way her gift is evolving. Nighttime dreams turn into daytime visions. Knowledge of what is happening with Chaz turns into an acute awareness of what other people are feeling. It’s new. It’s unpredictable. Neither of them understands these changes until an old enemy that she fears appears in new dreams.

Paul Watkins still wants Chaz dead. As Chaz and Stephanie work more closely on this new dangerous mission, it’s clear that there is no room for failure. They must bring this man to justice.

With danger moving closer to home, the threat becomes greater than ever. It only makes Stephanie and Chaz more determined. No one will destroy the life they are building. No one will weaken their bond. Every night they spend in each other’s arms only makes them stronger. But will they be strong enough to survive Paul Watkins and the evil that always surrounds him?

It is not necessary to read Premonitions: Dream Catcher Series – Book 1 in order to enjoy this novel. However, it does provide insight into the characters and reveals the foundation of their love and respect for each other.




Stephanie woke up and stared at her husband. His face was inches from hers, his warm breath slid across her cheek, and his arm rested protectively around her waist. But her heart was pounding, thanks to the images that had floated through her mind while she slept.


The strangest thing about her dream was that it was clear, even though this was the first time she’d had it. Usually, the dreams were vague and she would have them more than once before all of the details were decipherable.


There was no ambiguity this time. History taught her that either the event had happened or it was going to happen within the next day or two. Instinct told her that it would happen that day. She choked back a whisper of panic. Hadn’t she promised to be tough? Hadn’t she made a conscious decision that she would support Chaz in whatever he wanted to do with his career? Everyone thought he was happier as an undercover agent, and now the day had come when she would have to prove her fortitude.


She glanced at the bedside clock. The alarm would ring in half an hour. Carefully removing Chaz’s arm, she slipped from beneath the covers and quietly made her way to the walk-in closet. She closed the door behind her before turning on the light. It only took a few minutes to decide what she would wear to work and set the outfit aside. During that time, she decided that she’d tell her husband about the dream over breakfast. They had agreed to handle her dreams that way—no delaying anything that involved him or his job. She nodded as if agreeing with herself, took a deep breath, forced down her anxiety, and went downstairs.


Cooking would relax her. They’d have a big breakfast today.


Chaz wanted to laugh when he walked into the kitchen an hour later and took a look at the counter. Bacon, sausage patties, potato pancakes, biscuits, fruit salad, and juice. The scent of coffee mingled with everything else and made his mouth water. Stephanie, who was standing in front of the stove with her back to him, was vigorously whisking eggs.


“Good morning, honey,” she said a little too brightly. “How did you sleep?”


Chaz didn’t answer right away. Instead, he poured himself a cup of coffee, leaned against the counter while he sipped it, and studied his wife until she turned to him with a puzzled expression on her face.


“You always cook when you’re upset,” he explained after kissing her forehead. “Do you want to tell me now or after we eat?”


“Eggs will be ready in a couple of minutes.” She gave him a weak smile before turning her attention back to the stove. “I forgot to buy jelly, so there’s only honey for the biscuits.”


A few minutes later, she dumped half of the eggs onto each plate and joined Chaz at the table where he was already munching on a slice of bacon. She could feel him staring at her as he chewed and she took her time spreading butter on the fluffy bread. How she phrased her next words would be very important.


“I dreamed about your job. Steve is in town, even though you didn’t expect to see him yet. He’s a great guy, Chaz. I’m glad he’ll be the person helping with your transition. You’ll make a wonderful team leader.” She looked directly into his eyes now. “I don’t know how your going undercover again will affect our marriage, so I’m a little concerned. But, it’s our destiny to be together, Chaz, so we’ll be all right.” She paused briefly and let out a sigh. “You should take the job.”

He nodded and took a sip of juice. His eyes never left hers.


“What if I don’t want the job? Your dream told you what’s going to be discussed, but did it tell you how I feel?”


“Conflicted,” she answered.


“That’s right. This might be a good decision for my career, but honestly, I don’t want to be away from you,” he admitted. “I also don’t want to miss celebrating one single special moment with our child. I want to be on the floor teaching her to roll a ball and holding her hands while she’s learning to balance and taking her first steps. She’ll need to hear my voice reading goodnight stories from the moment she comes home from the hospital and feel my hands cuddling her when she’s grouchy from teething. She needs to know how much love is in my heart just for her. She deserves that; I deserve it.” He reached across the table and linked his fingers with his wife’s. “Besides, I don’t want you being a single parent for months at a time—and that’s what it might be. We’re building this life together, Stephanie. Together.” He stood and pulled her into his arms.


“When you were in Pennsylvania and I was here without you, part of my soul was missing, sweetheart. We were both miserable.” He kissed her very lightly. “I don’t want us to go through that again.” Another kiss. “And I don’t want you to be afraid, or lonely, or overwhelmed. I’ll figure out my career; there has to be another way. Leaving you isn’t worth it.”


Stephanie tightened her arms around him. What he said sounded wonderful. But she knew what she had seen, and her gift was rarely wrong. She returned his kisses and kept quiet.

Loving Night was the first book I have read from Brynette Turner, which I truly enjoyed. This was such a wonderful book that displayed all of the elements of a great story: Romance, excitement, suspense, and intrigue.

I loved the relationship between Stephanie and Chaz.  I loved the fact that Chaz was so in love with his wife and would sacrifice everything for her. The chemistry between the two were amazing and it showed that love really does conquer all.

The best thing about this story is that the two worked together as a team as they faced several obstacles in their relationship. No matter what issues they were facing, they never lost sight of the love they had for each other, which was the most important message in the story.

Although this was the second story in the Dream Catcher series, this is a standalone novel, but I will read Premonitions to see how the relationship between Stephanie and Chaz started. Now that I read Loving Night, I can’t wait to read Heart Shadows, which is the third book in the series.

Great job Ms. Turner!

Love, Life, & Happiness Spin-Off: No Other Love



Happy Sunday!! I recently received word from my publisher that No Other Love will be released soon! It’s currently with an editor and the cover will be revealed soon. I am so excited for this series and I cannot wait for you all to read it. Since this is the spin-off and it’s going through my publisher, I know a lot of you are probably wondering will things change with the characters and the storyline. Yes, the plot will be a little different from the original series, but let me assure you that the characters will still be the same. Not only will you get to revisit the original characters, but you get to potentially read other spin-offs in the making (of course with Elise and Jared and with Carla’s cousin, Mika).

There will be some readers who probably never read the LLH series (which I hoped you did!). Don’t worry, you don’t have to read the series to understand what’s going on. But if you want to get to know the characters really well, then you can read the series, especially Love Always, since that is the book that Kevin and Carla were introduced (even though him, Jennifer, Thomas, and Robert were introduced in Trust Me).

Another thing that I need to address is the time line. The year will be 2017. In Love Always, I upped the years to three, in which the series ended around that particular year. Therefore, NOL will start after Love Always and Redemption. I didn’t want anyone to be confused with the flashbacks when I mentioned the time frame is within 10 years when we’re in 2015.

Now that I cleared that up, I’m awaiting on news for part 1. Once I do have news on the release or the cover, I will be sure to let you all know. To get ready for part 1, catch up on the LLH series, which of course is available now on Amazon.

And by the way, I finished part 2 this past Friday, which I have to admit, has a SHOCKING cliffhanger, so I cannot wait for you all to read it (and no one will get shot or die in this series, like in Something Just Ain’t Right)

Until then, happy reading!

“I don’t want to go crazy, Cami. I just want to experience the normal things teenagers experience. While I’m still a teenager. I’ll be nineteen next month, and I haven’t done anything! I have one year.”

     Cami nodded as a slow smile spread across her face. “Kind of like a bucket list for your teen years.”

     I grinned and my wet hair bounced around when I nodded emphatically. “Exactly!”

     Cami jumped to her feet and started pacing the room. “That I can help with! But we should start a list right now. Write it all down, so we can mark it off as we go.”

     My insides jumped and fired to life, and I got to my feet too. “That’s a great idea.”

     Cami grabbed a notebook and flipped it open, then grabbed a pink Sharpie. At the top of the paper she scribbled Annie’s Bucket List. “Okay, what’s first?”

     I chewed on my bottom lip and ran my hand through my damp hair. “Let’s start small. Buy makeup.”

     Cami nodded and jotted it down, then said, “And some new clothes and shoes. Girly stuff.”

     She wrote down, buy a dress and heels and I inwardly cringed. Wearing heels seemed a bit unrealistic, but I was determined to do this. Even if I fell out of my shoes and broke my arm in the process.

     “Get highlights,” I said.

     Cami giggled while she wrote. “With your hair, I’d get lowlights.”

     I nodded even though I had no idea what she was talking about. She’d know better than me.

     Cami looked up and raised an eyebrow. “Get your ears pierced?”

     “And something else too! Like my nose or my belly button!” I was getting really excited. Bouncing around like Cami. I’d always been intrigued by the way most girls these days glinted under the lights. It was rare, especially in California, to see girls in their teens without multiple piercings. I wanted to be one of those girls.

     Cami wrote it down before looking back at me. “A tattoo?”

     I hadn’t even considered that one. Something inside me jumped, but with the painful way it twisted I wasn’t sure if it was fear or excitement. “I don’t know…”

     “We’ll put that one on the shelf for now. What else? Just fire them off and I’ll write as fast as I can.”

     I took a deep breath and went for it. She was willing to help, so I shouldn’t be scared about revealing how little I’d done. “Go on a date, go to a formal, go skinny-dipping, get drunk, have a first kiss, stay up all night, take a road trip with a group of friends.” I took a deep breath and peered at her out of the corner of my eye, but she hadn’t even blinked and she was still scribbling away. “Have sex….”
