Looking for your next sexy M/M romance?

A M/M Contemporary Romance
Harborside Nights #3
Melissa Foster
Releasing Oct 19th, 2016
World Literary Press

Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try and figure out where he keeps going wrong. He knows his biggest fault—he leads with his heart, not his head—and that’s never going to change. But after several introspective weeks, he’s beginning to get a handle on things. That is, until badass heartthrob Alex Wells walks into his bar…

Alex has spent eight years in the Army, months in a hospital bed, and far too long hiding his sexual identity. He’s guilt-ridden, damaged, pissed off, and up for a Silver Star—for the incident that nearly cost him his life, and kept him from his grandmother’s funeral. But all he wants to do is forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn’t necessarily accept, and live the life he’s always dreamed of.

The chemistry between Tristan and Alex ignites from the moment they meet, and the more time they spend together the hotter the flames become. But the closer Tristan gets, the more Alex’s walls go up, and when the two walk onto a military base, Tristan finds out Alex’s physical scars aren’t the ones that run the deepest.

5 Stars

Dang but this was a fantastic book to read, and mind you this is a genre that I have not read before.

Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men after another relationship is a bust, But all is well and meant to be this way until badass heartthrob Alex Wells walks into his bar...
Alex has spent eight years in the army, months in a hospital bed,and has his own baggage he is toting around, but when those two meet sparks fly and they are as good as the 4th of July fireworks.
As Alex fights to overcome what happened to him and the loss of his Grandmother he keeps getting closer to Tristan.
This is a love story so touching and so good, yes problems are there, but what love story does not have them, overcoming them is the thing in a book or in real life, Melissa Foster thank you for a lovely story that I would read over and over again.

When Lady Grace Grayson accepts an invitation to a house party at Rocksavage Manor, she expects a few weeks of painting and serenity in the English countryside.  She doesn’t expect to become the target of a murderer. When Kyle Calshot, accepts a position with Theodore Price, the owner of Rocksavage Manor, he expects to learn all he can about British Politics in Victorian England.  He doesn’t expect to be asked to betray a friend or become the bodyguard to a beautiful red haired widow. As Grace and Kyle struggle against a newfound passion for one another, they must discover the motives of a killer.  And when old secrets are revealed can their new love survive?



When the sound of the shot came, disrupting the sunny pond and meadow with a sharp crack, Kyle leapt to his feet in a single fluid motion knowing immediately what the sound was, and ran the short distance from the far side of the pond to Lady Grace in one breathless moment.  He looked into the distant woods behind, the only direction from which the shot could have originated.  No movement, just a shine near the floor of the woods which could only be explained by the presence of a person.  A gleam of metal meant a gun, likely a rifle at this distance.  Someone was watching and targeting her. 

Get down!” he yelled, and just as another shot was fired, Kyle leapt towards Lady Grace and knocked her down, rolling as they fell to take the weight of the fall on his right shoulder.  He didn’t give her time to react, covering most of her body as he continued to roll them over and over.  He brought them to a rest under a stand of willows near the edge of the pond.  The draping branches of the willow gave them some cover, but Kyle knew that if the gunman was determined, and a good shot, they would still be in danger.

In the first of Heather Heyford’s new series, set in Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine country, the grape isn’t the only source of intoxication . . .

A Perfect Pairing

Juniper Hart has her dream job—or rather, her dream job has her. Under Junie’s management, the winery her late father started is finally getting noticed. But she’s lonely, deep in debt, and overwhelmed with work. Even if she had time to date, the only men she meets are smug, stemware-breaking hotshots like Lieutenant Manolo Santos, whose good looks and smooth charm don’t half make up for the sour taste he leaves on Junie’s palate.

After years as an army engineer and a childhood in a restaurant kitchen, Manolo can see Junie’s winery is about to go sideways—and he’s bursting with ideas to help. Except Junie’s far too magnetic for comfort. He left New Jersey to escape becoming one more Santos man shackled to a captivating woman and a failing family business. But in the misty hills of Oregon, with a sip of supple pinot on his tongue, pulling away is the last thing he wants to do . . .


Bitterly, Connecticut, has been a haven for a woman shattered by painful memories—until a handsome stranger appears and threatens to awaken the ghosts of her past…

For the last eleven years, Savannah Callowell has led a peaceful existence in Bitterly. As the owner of an old farm, she’s mostly kept to herself, not daring to let anyone get too close. None of her neighbors know that she’s haunted by tragedy, and she’s done everything possible to escape her ghosts. She thinks she’s succeeding, until her new foreman shows up—and he’s far from being the college kid she was expecting…

A worldly former professor, Adelmo Gallegos has his own reasons for wanting to hide out on Savvy’s farm, and he isn’t about to share them with anyone, not even his enticing new boss. Still, Ade can’t help himself, the more time he spends with Savannah, the more he longs to lure her out of her protective shell. But how can he convince her that opening her heart is the only way to heal? Especially since he too has secrets he’s unwilling to share? Only when the past catches up with them may they be able to free themselves of it…



The Crush

A pang of empathy hit him. “Don’t worry, Buttercup.” He crooked a knuckle under her chin. “Just wait till I get finished with this place. . . .”

That one square inch of skin fused them together like a magnet. His feet stepped closer of their own accord until the toes of his boots bumped hers.

Her lips relaxed and parted. He scrutinized every inch of her face, seeking fault . . . justification to quell his growing desire. It was true. Junie wasn’t a conventional beauty. Her features were a tad too strong, and freckles from working outside sprinkled her nose. But with no makeup diverting attention from them, her irises shone like sapphires. Even under the glaring summer sun, her naked skin was poreless, her cheeks downy as peach fuzz. She was like an organic fruit, imperfect on the surface but better for you in the ways that counted.

His body stiffened with lust. But this was no run-of-the-mill at- traction. An undercurrent of danger ran through it. His heart pounded like it did the moment his CO announced, “Operation mobile” unexpectedly and he knew all of his skills were about to be tested to the limit. At moments like that—when a man was never closer to death—he never felt more alive.

His fingers spread to cup her jaw possessively. He tipped her head back, sending her Ducks cap tumbling backward onto to the ground. Slowly, slowly his head descended until only inches sepa- rated their lips. His own jaw tightened with the effort of restraint. It took every ounce of self-control he had not to throw caution to the wind, rip that baggy white suit right off, and lay her down in the mid- dle of the vineyard in broad daylight. If she were any other woman . . .
