Hidden Gems in the TBR Pile (1)

I’ve got a lot of books in my kindle, whether those I bought or those I’d gotten free from contests or free from Amazon that are languishing in my kindle. I’m gonna list those I truly want to read so that I don’t forget them. I mean, I bought them for a reason, right?

“Create one perfect bite.”

Good little widow Sophia Brown always follows the rules. When the producer of a cooking competition requests an amuse-bouche, the chefs stick with proteins. Sauces. A savory concoction. She has only one shot to impress the judges on A Taste of Heaven. But in a moment of defiance, she creates an extraordinary dessert, one that combines both the bitter and the sweet, just like her own life.

That one bite changes everything.

After a year grieving for her dead husband, forty-seven-year-old Sophia is finally ready to break out of her shell. Unfortunately, there is a large, angry obstacle standing in her way. Scottish chef Elliott Adamson has a chip on his shoulder the size of Loch Ness, and he’s blocking her path to victory.Spurred by her daughters, she embarks on a poignant adventure that takes her from the wildflower fields of Vermont to the wind-swept vista of North Berwick, Scotland. Fear, courage, and inspiration from unlikely places will mark this journey, and Sophia is determined to persevere until the very end.

A TASTE OF HEAVEN is a 57,000 word novel that includes a foodie romance, second chances, and a wee bit of haggis.

 

Strip clubs, kidnappings, the mafia, and undercover missions—it’s all here in the first three books in national bestselling author Karin Tabke’s sizzling Hot Cops series!

Book One: Good Girl Gone Bad
Philamina Zorn is a straight-laced, by-the-book cop working in internal affairs, and this time it’s landed her an undercover job at a gentleman’s club. Jaded vice cop Ty Jamerson has been forced to work with her, but makes it apparent he’d rather see her handing out parking tickets than working his case. But as they enter the sordid world of exotic dancers, murder, and kidnapping, these two hot cops discover that if they want to survive, they’ll have to strip more than just their inhibitions.

Book Two: Skin
Feisty Francesca Donatello needs the sexiest man on the planet to launch her magazine SKIN. Undercover cop Reese Bronson needs the job to infiltrate the Donatello organized crime family. While Reese sheds his clothes and Francesca captures it on film for her magazine, someone decides that Francesca belongs with her mob-boss father—dead. On the run from San Francisco to Wyoming, they dodge bullets and learn that trusting each other is the only way to stay alive.

Book Three: Jaded
Turned out at fourteen by her mother, Ruby Leigh Gentry has a dark past that she will do anything to keep there. Burned-out, cynical detective Jase Vaughn gets a job involving a sexual predator whose killings lead him to the door of the one woman who can break the case wide open: Jade Deveraux, the sultry proprietress of Callahan’s, a blueblood gentleman’s club. But Jade (a.k.a. Ruby Leigh) knows the same secrets as the killer. Are they one and the same…or is she the next victim?

 

In Body of Evidence, a sexy romantic political thriller, an archaeologist and a US Attorney find themselves on an explosive, globe-spanning chase full of political intrigue and legal drama. Body of Evidence is the second book in Grant’s Evidence Series, where archaeology, politics, and war collide.

And she thought facing a firing squad was bad…

When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.

What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States.
