Release Date: July 12, 2022
Cover Design: Truly Trendy PR
Eric
Falling in love with a pop starlet has its drawbacks
Lack of privacy, for one
Gossip, for another
But falling in love with Kiki Ramirez was the best thing I’ve ever done
And the stupidest
One story planted by her agent and now I look like a fool
Played by the starlet
Looking like a simp for the world to see
But none of its true and I can’t defend my woman how I want
The urge to fight for her, to defend her is too strong
Even against the Hollywood machine working hard to keep us apart
Kiki
Falling in love with a civilian wasn’t part of the plan
I didn’t believe in love
Not for me and not for my life
But a small town mayor was the man who’d torn down my walls
Snuck past my defenses
And now with our future hanging in the balance its up to me to find a way to make it all work
A crazy agent
A ravenous paparazzi
And a pregnant belly I’m powerless to hide
I want Eric and the life I see for us
But how can I invite this madness into his quiet, small town life?

“… enjoyable and engaging contemporary romance, which kept me happily turning the pages.”

“This story had me hooked.”

N.D. Jackson spends her days wandering the streets of whatever European city she and her husband finds themselves visiting or living in, creating new characters and new worlds for her novels, and she spends her nights cooking yummy vegan food and whipping up not-so-fancy but tasty cocktails for loved ones. Though a native of Chicago she currently lives in Romania and has slowly started to travel again, though she still longs for the days she could fill her passport with stamps from Germany, Amsterdam, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Romania, Hungary, Austria and all the other places she’s visited.
Since she received her first library card at the age of 7, not a day goes by where she doesn’t read a page or chapter. Or finish a whole book. Her first novel, Conflict of Interest was published in 2014 at the ripe old age of she’s not telling and she had been entertaining readers with tales of love and romance ever since.

Title: An Unexpected Turn
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Small Town Romance, Single Dad Romance
Release Date: August 12, 2022
Cover Design: Qamber Designs
Photography: Regina Wamba

Verve Romance ~ “Crazy hot, super sweet, and with one of the most rewarding epilogues I’ve ever read, An Unexpected Turn was an absolute joy to read.

Booklover Judy Lynn ~ “There are some hot and steamy times, some very romantic and swoon-worthy moments, and times filled with heart-warming emotion.”

Pages with Payten ~ “the white hot chemistry between Peyton and Jake is undeniable”

Kristina Hearts Books ~ “If the age gap, forbidden elements, small town vibe, and real adult communication weren’t enough the heat is sizzling between Peyton and Jake!”

Peyton
After a risky affair cost me my self-respect, my credibility, and almost my job, I jump at the guidance counselor position that opens up in Uncle Keith’s small town. He’s the only father I’ve ever really known and the one I can turn to—even when I can’t tell him why.
No one here knows what a mess I am, and this clean slate seems perfect. At least until I run into my old crush, who’s only gotten better looking with age.
I won’t be another man’s dirty little secret, even if that crush I had as a teenager blossomed into something much more—something I can’t face.
Reasons Why Absolutely Nothing Can Happen Between Us:
1. Jake is the single dad of one of my new students.
2. Age gap. Age gap. Age gap.
3. He’s my uncle’s best friend.
Jake
I didn’t realize the curvy brunette I flirted with outside my son’s school was my buddy’s sweet, shy niece, all grown-up now. I know better than to get involved.
My marriage crumbled, leaving me and my son with damage we’re still repairing. The last thing I need is to start something with someone fourteen years younger. Did I mention she’s the police chief’s surrogate daughter?
I’m old enough to know better, but I can’t keep my hands off her. I never expected to fall this hard. Even though it’s all wrong, nothing has ever felt this right.
Author’s Note: This deliciously scandalous, small-town, single dad standalone includes steamy times in front of a kitchen sink, a hot new use for a chocolate ice cream cone, and an alpha cinnamon-roll hero who’s very good with his hands.
Stephanie Rose is a badass New Yorker, a wife, a mother, and lover of all things chocolate. Most days you’ll find her trying to avoid standing on discarded LEGO or deciding which book to read next. Her debut novel, Always You, released in 2015, and since then she’s written several more—some of which will never see completion—and has ideas for hundreds to come.

Fairytales tell us monsters are big scary creatures that hide in the shadows. Life isn’t a fairytale, and neither are the monsters. In my story, the evildoer hides behind a screen to torment me.

 

When his interest escalates from messages to threats, the only way I can stay safe is to leave my life in the city and seek safety in a small mountain town. What I didn’t expect to find in Starlight Ridge is a police officer I’ve met before.

 

It isn’t the change in Gage Castillo’s appearance alone that has me curious. There is something in his eyes that tells me he too is seeking solace. Unlike me, I don’t think it’s a man after him but a memory.

 

Having Gage nearby dims the feeling of being pursued. For the first time, I am able to live my life in love and not fear. I am determined to live in my bubble of happiness … so long as my stalker doesn’t find me.
