FEATURED BOOK: It’s Not My Favorite by Rue

Genre: Romantic Comedy, LGBT

“An irreverent, modern-day, romantic comedy!”

The Hutchinson sisters grew up under the piercing, pious stare of a preacher’s wife. Plagued by her ever-disappointed refrain, “Well, it’s not my favorite.” Their search to find their own way in the world has not been a screaming success.

Gwenn is a good girl, a responsible girl…a miserable girl. Her steady diet of vivid fantasies is the only part of her life she enjoys. She daydreams of new parents, a more exciting job and an actual love life. She struggles to run a business as The Organizer, while she stacks relationship carcasses in the closet of her own completely unorganized life. Her only real friend is her younger sister, Rachel.

Rachel is outgoing, risqué and happily gay. The only people who don’t know this little secret are her judgmental parents, Pastor Ed and Shirley. Rachel struggles mightily to dodge her mother’s constant attempts to set her up with “nice Christian boys”; while holding down a job at the bakery and keeping up with her rock-star girlfriend!

Gwenn uncovers a photo that brings her imaginary world careening into reality. She’s forced to ask herself if wealthy artist, Daniel Gregory is the answer she’s been seeking or a grand delusion.

Break-ups, meltdowns, family secrets, wild nights and finally a journey of self-discovery to exotic New Zealand keep Gwenn and Rachel stumbling toward independence.

So grab your parka and join the Hutchinson girls, as they experience the Lake Effect in Duluth, Minnesota!

About The Book of Barkley – Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever by LB Johnson

It is a story, not one of science, and one that may not be remembered past this one lifetime. It is the story of someone that did not know his destiny, but followed it with unfaltering step, bound to his human companion, not by vows or paper, but in the name of the trust that was the best part of his nature. It is a story of the one that taught her to love, even as he occasionally barfed on the carpet. It is the tale of a black Lab named Barkley. It begins in the 1960’s as the author is growing up—dogs becoming part of the family. But it is only after many years of living alone following heartbreak; that Barkley finds his way to Ms. Johnson, and she begins to view the world as he does—and learns to love again.

It is a story of family, of friends, dog hair and a small pink ball with feet known as Mr. Squeaky that became her mortal enemy at dawn. It is the story of rambunctious trespasses and the loving trust that bound a lonely road warrior and a dog together in unspoken understanding.

About Dominated by Duplicitous Desires by L Law

Dominated by Duplicitous Desires is on sale for $2.99 during the pre-order dates and for two weeks following the Valentine’s Day release.

Synopsis

Come enter into the world where one night of reckless abandon plunges Ann into a world of deception, intrigue, murder, and revenge where nothing is as it seems and she becomes the red flag in a tug-o-war of powerful businessmen who will dominate her, protect her, or strip her bare in order to unlock secrets from her past of which even she is unaware.

While attending the charitable event which she spearheaded with her stepfather last year in hopes of grounding herself after his death, Ann is knocked off her feet by billionaire businessman, Stephan Greystone. His steel eyes flare with fiery desire as they lock with her gray inflaming her core and igniting an insatiable hunger for a man she can never have. As a stunning woman places her fingertips on Stephan’s forearm, his eyes cool causing waves of self-doubt and insecurity to crash over Ann, prompting her to flee.

Just once, she wishes she could be a confident, sexual siren like her best friend, Alice, who arouses passion in every man caught in her sights. As Alice slips into the seat next to Ann smelling of sex and her latest conquest’s cologne, she begs Ann to experiment and enter into games of erotic seduction planned for later in the evening involving some of the guests. With that one word and a nod of her head indicating that Stephan will be one such entrant, Ann is consumed by an inexplicable need to try and win Stephan and engage in one night of unrestrained passion.

Never did she expect that her hopes of catching an impossible dream would lead her into the arms of a man who derives pleasure from inflicting pain and spurn her descent into a world of duplicity and vengeance where no one is as they appear. Waking in the woods, she soon learns that Alice is dead and that the only people surrounding her are those with an agenda to unlock information from her past that even she does not know she has or strip away all that she has known.
