She’s hiding from her past. He’s the only exception. She’ll get one chance to clear her name… and he’ll try to win her heart.

Rosie’s hometown return is a far cry from triumphant. Broke and on the run from her drug-dealing ex, she’s determined to hide out and save up for a one-way ticket out. But an encounter with a guy she once knew in high school, a guy who is now a cop, just might change everything.

Blaine never thought he’d see the girl who saved his life in high school again, but when he pulls over a speeding car and sees who’s behind the wheel, he recognizes the shattered woman immediately. Rosie Sweet is back in Aspen Falls and now the tables are turned. She needs his help. Desperately.

All Blaine wants is a chance to thank the woman who rescued him, and see if the real Rosie lives up to the woman he’s dreamed about over the years. But Rosie knows her time in Aspen Falls is temporary. It has to be, because her past is catching up with her...and it will have deadly consequences. If Blaine finds out the secrets she’s keeping, he could ruin her. Or could he be the one man to ultimately save her?

Dead of Winter is the first standalone book in a spine-tingling series of romantic suspense novels. 
If you like small town mysteries, heart-wrenching romance, and gripping tension, then you’ll love Melissa Pearl and Anna Cruise’s white-knuckle thrill ride.
My Rating:  📔📔📔📔📔
My Thoughts: Sometimes It’s Best To Return Home.
          The first installment of the Aspen Falls novels by authors Melissa Pearl and Anna Cruise, was absolutely wonderful! This novel had it all - action, suspense, mystery, and sweet romance. This writing duo has two more novels planned for Aspen Falls that are sure to be just as exciting and I can’t wait to read them. 
       Waking with the mother of all hangovers the last thing Rosie Sweet imagined was being served a search warrant by officers. Things for Rosie only went from bad to worse as events unfolded leading her to flee from her ex-boyfriend Damien. Rosie friends herself running to the only place left that she promised never to return to, her home town of Aspen Falls. It’s there that she finds herself pulled over by an officer who show her kindness and directs her to the one person in the town she always thought of as a grandmother. That officer turns out to be Blaine Hartford, he was once the class loner who was bullied but now is the town hottie. Blaine can’t believe his high school crush is back in town, but it’s obvious something is wrong and he can’t help but want to help Rosie if only she’d open up before it’s too late. 
       Overall, loved it! Small town life and romance meets big issues and regrets. I’m so happy for the ending it’s was just too precious especially after the big scene at the end that had me on pins and needles, Phew! that was a close one. Rosie was definitely the character I connected the most with, life can just suck when things aren’t what you expect and other people seem to have it all together. So when she returned to Aspen Falls and found not shame but home and a new start, it beautiful. Ugh and Blaine hot stuff right there, doing what he can to protect his town and woman. So if you love stories where the girl rises above her troubles and gets a great man and home in process, then this book will be a great read to start a series. 

Chapter 14: (Tuesday, February 20th 9:45pm)
      With her breath on hold, Rosie pushed her door open. 
      “You take care, sweet Rose.” 
      She glanced back at Blaine’s smile and grinned. “Thanks for saving me tonight.” 
      “Always. I owe you, right?” He winked but she countered his playful expression with words she meant from the bottom of her buried heart. 
      “You’ll never owe me anything, Blaine Hartford. I did the world a huge favor that day.” 
      They stared at each other. It was a look deep with meaning and it made getting out of his car that much harder. But Rosie forced herself to blink and jump out. Shutting the door, she reminded herself that Blaine had a good life. He didn’t need her coming in and screwing everything up. 
      She walked carefully across the icy concrete, remembering her fall from earlier. Her bruised knee still ached. Blaine’s headlights guided her way and she stopped at the door and waved goodbye, forcing a smile as he drove off. 
      She couldn’t figure out whether she wanted to smile at his kind words or cry at the fact that she’d never be worthy of a guy like Blaine. 
      He’d changed so much since that day by the waterfall…and he held her responsible. 
      He shouldn’t. 
      She didn’t deserve that kind of accolade. 
      While she’d been falling into disrepair, Blaine had been building himself up, working his ass off to become a man that any girl would be lucky to have. 
      Pulling the door open, she gazed up at the stairwell, the fear from earlier rising over her again. She’d meant to run from this place. Just because Blaine had made her forget for a moment didn’t mean Chester and Damien wouldn’t still find her in Aspen Falls. 
      Looking over her shoulder, she stared into the bleak parking lot and had to face the fact there was nothing she could do right then. She needed to get upstairs, get warm and go to sleep. 
      Maybe in the morning her head would be clear enough to think up a new escape plan.

Anna Cruise

Anna Cruise has been drooling over boys since middle school...and writing about them, too. She hates cliffhangers, is a sucker for nice guys finishing first and revels in happy endings--and not just in books. 

Anna grew up on the beaches of San Diego but currently resides in Minneapolis. Most of her writing is done in the winter, since she is pretty sure she's allergic to sub-zero temperatures and tends to hibernate until it's sunny and in the seventies. Her office is her couch and her colleagues are her kids and her sloth-like cats. 

With ten books under her belt--and more on the way--she really wishes she'd taken keyboarding in high school. Typing with only three fingers is not terribly efficient.

When romance novelist Kate Smith suddenly gets writer's block as she's beginning the final installment of her international bestselling erotic Bed 'n Breakfast series, she'll do pretty much anything to get her groove back. 

Like sneak into a Tire Depot waiting room because her words flow there just like complimentary coffee-smooth, sweet, and scorchingly hot. 

 She manages to fly under the radar until the rugged and charming mechanic, Miles Hudson, notices the quirky redhead slinking in and out of the employees only entrance. 

But she's way too intriguing to blow the whistle on. 

 Doing a test-drive of her new book idea sounds like a much better option.

My Thoughts: No Justice For Lord Of Darkness.
         This story reminded why I L-O-V-E Greek mythology! The drama, mystery and theatrics of the gods with each other and  humans is what Greek mythology entails and for an author such as, Eva Pohler, to embellish and modernize but not loose its core themes, and characters, is a great accomplishment. 
         Ruling the underworld brings no pleasure and time is just passing by for the Hades the Lord of darkness. That is until the Fates seek refuge in his realm with the bargain to reveal to him whom his future bride shall be. Hades with this new hope and knowledge seeks out his future wife, who is none other than Demeter’s daughter, Persephone. To say their first few meetings weren’t as Hades expected is putting it easy, Hades eventually lets Persephone approach him on her own timing. So when she does and asks to be hidden from her mother just to have a moments peace, Hades can’t believe his luck. But it’s from then on neither Hades or Persephone lives, are ever the same, as they try to find happiness together but have to contend with jealous gods, humans, and of course fate. 
         Overall, great prequel but an even better standalone. Honestly this book could just be it’s own story with how much history and gods are written into this tragic tale. I love when authors can romanticize a character as harshly painted or dark as the god of the underworld Hades. He was the victim and diamond in the rough throughout this novel and it literally made me shed tears for him. Now Persephone too was hurt by actions done to Hades, but honestly I was pissed at her a couple times for not realizing what an awesome man she got paired with, which again was Hades. So for me to cheer for Hades, you know that Eva Pohler did great in writing a beautiful but sad beginning for the underworld family. I also love how Eva took the time to explain why she changed some things historical and mythological facts, which of course were all done to embellish her core plot. So if you are ready to feel for the lord of the underworld and his family as the gods deal out their justice on men and each other, then definitely begin here and have some tissues ready.

My Thoughts: Can The Cynic City Reporter Find What Love Is?
          First thing that drew me to this novel was the cute cover and finding this story was set in Ireland bonus! Quick moral of the story, one should never type and send anything when angry or drunk as it never goes well for the writer. If you have ever had the chance to visit Ireland, then you’ll appreciate this story and the jovial people with whom take the city reporter for a tour.
          By pure accident and a step of courage, e-magazine travel reporter, Kiera Swanson, has landed the dream assignment of going to Ireland for a month long feature on the Festival of Love. Kiera had been taking crap assignments and harsh criticism from her supervisor Josh for so long that this has been the chance Kiera has been waiting for as a sign her career is worthwhile. And she needs job affirmation, because she may no longer have a boyfriend thanks to grabbing the assignment. So it’s a wonderful surprise when Kiera arrives in Ireland and drives to the small town of Lisdoonvarna to stay at the local B&B and Pub; Orin the owner gives her the old Irish welcome, a pint of Guinness, and introduces her to Shane Lawder, Kiera’s guide for the next month. The attraction to Shane is immediate, but the cynic in Kiera will fight it till the end, especially amongst a festival full of so many searching for "love". However after a few weeks, and many a Guinness, Kiera can’t help but begin to question all her previous notions of traditions, community, family and love thanks to all whom she’s encountered in Ireland, especially the handsome and quirky Shane. But when she’s pressured from work for a more harsh and cynical viewpoint on the festival, will all Keira’s experienced be enough to change her article's focus or will her old biases on love go to print?
           Overall, cute read on a lazy day. Honestly I was getting super posed at Kiera only, because she had such an opportunity and kept wasting it. Ireland and the Irish people are amazing, so welcoming and definitely love their Guinness. So Kiera drunkenly typing crap about them or projecting her own insecurities on the festivities was so sad to read. But then there was Shane awww wish I had a supportive Shane. Once Kiera freed her heart and finally went for Shane, YAASSS!! Buuut of course that’s not the end, so I won’t ruin it or anything but oh I loved the angst of the apology scene and of course the make up moments. Let’s just say wish I had Kiera’s luck maybe the ummm luck of the Irish ;) So if you’re cynical about love and yet still a tiny bit hopeful for love this romance will be a good read if only to see cynic turn to love.
