Benjamin Cohen, widowed father of six-year-old Jessie, is doing his best to hold it together through order and routine. The last thing he needs is his matchmaker mother to set him up with her next door neighbor, no matter how attractive she is.

Rachel Schaecter’s dream of becoming a foster mother is right within her grasp, until her meddlesome neighbor tries to set her up with her handsome son. What’s worse? He’s the father of her favorite kindergarten student! She can’t afford to let anything come between her and her dream, no matter how gorgeous he may be.

Can these two determined people trust in the miracle of Hanukkah to let love and light into their lives?

 

Excerpt

Six-year-old bodies were good at many things— bouncing, hugging, and racing. Rachel was thankful they were also good at hiding her surprise. Never in her wildest dreams did she imagine her favorite student, and her student’s father, would be at her neighbor’s house the same night she was invited to celebrate Hanukkah.

She met the hard gaze of Jessie’s father across the room. Eyes narrowed as if he suspected her reasons for being here. His broad shoulders were stiff. His jean-clad muscular legs were spread apart in a solid stance. Square hands fisted at his sides, and one of them held a menorah. Did he plan to throw it or club someone with it?

Giving Jessie a last pat, she rose. With an arm around Jessie, she extended her other hand to her father. “Happy Hanukkah.”

“Ms. Schaecter.”

“Mr. Cohen.”

“Oh, please,” Harriet said, “Such formality between you two. Rachel, this is my son Benny. I mean Benjamin.”

Benny. Rachel filed the information away for later, along with his flushed skin at the nickname. Interesting.

“And Benjamin, this is my neighbor, Rachel. We’re not at a school event. You can call each other by your first names.” Harriet pointed at Jessie, who gripped Rachel’s hand so hard, Rachel’s fingers lost their circulation. “Except for you,” Harriet added. “You have to call her Ms. Schaecter.”

Jessie giggled. “Yes, Grandma.”

Author Bio

Jennifer started telling herself stories as a little girl when she couldn’t fall asleep at night. Pretty soon, her head was filled with these stories and the characters that populated them. Even as an adult, she thinks about the characters and stories at night before she falls asleep or walking the dog. Eventually, she started writing them down. Her favorite stories to write are those with smart, sassy, independent heroines; handsome, strong and slightly vulnerable heroes; and her stories always end with happily ever after.

In the real world, she’s the mother of two amazing daughters and wife of one of the smartest men she knows. She believes humor is the only way to get through the day and does not believe in sharing her chocolate.

She writes contemporary romance, some of which are mainstream and some of which involve Jewish characters. She’s published with The Wild Rose Press and all her books are available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

WHAT IS LOVE? Sensible Angela and romantic Patsy have very different points of view in LOVE LETTERS & GINGERBREAD, a historical romance set during Christmas 1831 in Annapolis. For Patsy, it’s the passion burning in her heart for faithless Vincent who fails to write after he goes away. For practical Angela, love is made up of the tasks that fill her day taking care of her mother and little sister.

Eighteen-year-old Patsy prefers pining for Vincent over paying attention to a new neighbor, William, who showers her with kindnesses. Angela considers herself too busy for suitors, until she makes the acquaintance of handsome Gordon.

Christmas will never be the same for these sisters or the men who love them.

And an excerpt–

Since this is a Christmas story, this is a scene that takes place after the disastrous Winter Ball. It’s Christmas Eve and the family is getting ready for the evening’s festivities:

Chapter 16

Christmas Eve

“I really don’t want to talk about it.” Mother’s tone was sharp. She and Ella were in the parlor setting up the table for the Tannenbaum

Ella was quick with a response. “I don’t like to repeat gossip. But I thought you might want to be prepared. I was thinking of the girls.”

 Angela could hear the argument all the way in the kitchen where she and Patricia were stringing popcorn to wind around the tree. Her curiosity got the best of her and she left her sister to stroll as nonchalantly as she could into the parlor. After all, they could be talking about her or Gordon. 

She strolled in, trying to effect a cool demeanor. “What gossip?”

Angela didn’t like the troubled look on her mother’s face. 

“I better get the nuts and apples.” Ella rushed away, her lips pursed. 

Angela picked up a cookie to hang on a limb. “Has something happened, Mother?” 

Her mother waved away the question with her hand. “It’s probably nothing.” 

“Let me decide if it’s nothing. It has you bothered.”

Mother turned to look at Angela, though she did not reply. 

“Has something happened?” Angela disliked repeating the question but all she could think of was what the town wags might be saying after that scene at the ball. And she knew the news of Vincent’s impending marriage must be racing through parlors all over Annapolis. She hated the idea of either her sister or her being the topic of local gossip.

Her mother took a chair by the fireplace. “Sit down, dear.”

I’m very happy to be invited back to Rusticating in the Tropics! This time I’m sharing a holiday story, One Week to Win Her Boss. This sweet contemporary romance is set in Snowflake Valley, a town dedicated to Christmas 365 days a year.

 

From the back cover:

Single mom Amber Barnett loves family, kids, Christmas…and unfortunately, her boss, confirmed bachelor Michael DeFranco. It’s a crush she really needs to get over. Except, when she’s temporarily forced from her apartment, her only option is to stay at Michael’s private ski lodge, where she’s the housekeeper. No problem. Her handsome boss rarely visits Snowflake Valley unexpectedly, plus he’s spending the holidays with his family. Or so she thinks…

A stormy Christmas Eve reunion leaves Michael seeking the solitude of his lodge, where he finds Amber in residence—and in trouble. Attempting to save her from her matchmaking family, he announces they’re a couple. His good deed backfires when they’re instantly included in each and every holiday event in town. So much for solitude.

Only the more time he spends with the beautiful, cheery brunette, the more he yearns to make things real between them. But he and Amber want different things, and Michael could never be the family man she’s looking for.

 

An excerpt from One Week to Win Her Boss:

“I need a place to stay, just for a few days,” Amber said truthfully. “And I don’t want my family to find out.”

“Interesting.” He tilted his head, studying her, making her heart skip a beat. “Do you do this often?”

“No! I’ve never stayed here before. Except when you’ve asked me to. When you’ve come here with guests, I mean.” Get a grip. Falling apart won’t impress your boss any more than the bunny slippers did. Taking a tip from her birthing class, she inhaled and exhaled a deep, calming breath and tried again. “Michael, I’ve never stayed here on my own before. And I wouldn’t have done it without asking you this time. But I knew you had plans for the holidays, and I didn’t want to bother you while you were with your family.”

“Believe me, I’d have welcomed the bother.” His scowl sent her curiosity skyrocketing. “I don’t mind that you didn’t ask. It’s good to have the house occupied once in a while. I just didn’t expect company.”

“I’ll keep out of your way,” she promised.

One dark eyebrow rose as he stared her down. “Somehow, I don’t see that leading to the peace and quiet—and solitude—I was looking for.”

“No worries. Hand to heart. I’ll stay far away,” she promised again. “You won’t hear a peep out of me.”

At that moment, as if on cue, Penny let out her usual I’m-ready-to-eat screech. Michael’s suddenly blank expression proved he had heard the baby, too, and wasn’t pleased. But wait—there’s more. Penny’s hunger cries were loud enough. How would he handle her being colicky?

“What was that?” he demanded.

“Uh…not what. Who. My daughter.” Michael had never met Penny. In fact, he hadn’t even known about Amber’s pregnancy until she was so far along he couldn’t miss the baby bump.

“Ah,” he said. “When it comes to not making a peep, it doesn’t look like you were speaking for your daughter.”

She smiled sheepishly. “Sometimes she likes to speak for herself.”

He shook his head, but his mouth curved up at one corner. He was fighting a smile. Even in the midst of this disaster, even with the recent reminder that she couldn’t and shouldn’t trust her judgment around men, that half-smile was enough to make her melt.

Charity Sunday blog hop

newsoutherncover.jpg

The charity I’d like to highlight this month is Beacon of Hope. The organization was formed here on the island where I live after Hurricane Charley made a direct hit here back in 2004. It has since grown to include many services to “Help Our People Excel” such as meal service, GED classes, veterans’ support, transportation to medical appointments, and the list goes on.

The Beacon is now affiliated with United Way, but much of the money to run the programs comes from its thrift store and the annual Holiday House event.

featured_author_2017

Here I am at Holiday House selling my books.

I included both a hurricane and the formation of a social service agency in my book Southern Hospitality.

Here’s an excerpt:

The next afternoon, the sun had indeed come out in a cloudless sky. The humidity also co-operated making for a perfect day for an outdoor concert.

At noon, traffic was already backed from Calusa all the way across the drawbridge. Sheriff Biggs and Deputy Ramos along with a number of members of the Skippers directed car after car into parking spaces on the outskirts of Mr. Wibbertson’s property. After alighting, the passengers claimed spaces in the open area to set up folding chairs and throw down blankets. Before long, some began tossing beach balls and Frisbees through the air. Others partook of hotdogs, pulled pork sandwiches, and grouper tacos prepared by the food trucks lining the perimeter. A band of local teenagers served as the opening act and began to entertain the growing crowd.

Kate hovered in the wings checking and rechecking last minute details over a two way radio with Dave as he roamed the grounds. Behind the scenes, Geneva and Patsy welcomed Joey and his band mates when Seth delivered them from the hotel.

At three o’clock, Joey and the other musicians bounded onto the stage. With no original music of their own, they chose to perform up tempo oldies and trop rock favorites. Many in the audience either sang along or got up and began to dance. A party atmosphere prevailed for the full two hours that the band played. When they finally took their bows, the shouts of approval were deafening.

Afterwards, the traffic snaked its way off the island in a steady stream for a solid hour. Most of the cars had their windows down as the jubilant occupants continued to sing their way out of town.

The Skippers spread out over Mr. Wibbertson’s field as soon as the vehicles had departed. They soon gathered what little debris had been left behind restoring Mr. Wibbertson’s property to its former state. Weary but exultant, Kate and the others wended their way to their homes. On Sunday morning Pastor Jenkins and Father Mathias both held services of thanksgiving at their respective churches.

The next afternoon, Kate waited for her fellow committee members on the patio. Helen was the last to arrive. Grinning broadly, she all but skipped in, waving a paper over her head.

“I have the preliminary figures,” she announced. “We made nearly twenty-five thousand dollars over what we projected. The auction at the VIP party was a big success.” She paused long enough to blush.  “And Joey himself made a hefty donation before he left town. He handed the check to me personally.”

“Who says prayers aren’t answered?” Father Mathias asked.

“Can I have an amen?” Pastor Jenkins raised his arms skyward.

After the rest of the group responded happily, Dave pulled out a sheaf of papers. “I have some good news too. We can get a preliminary approval of our nonprofit status. All we need is a name.”

“How about Funds for Calusa?” Helen suggested.

“Or Building a New Calusa,” Seth said.

Geneva raised an eyebrow. “Calusa Social Services?”

“I’ve been pondering this,” Kate said. “Everyone in town pulled together to help each other through this. I think our name should be Calusa Cares.”

Dave gazed into Kate’s eyes. “Perfect.”

Second down

The No Regrets Groom by Taylor Hart

Last Play Masquerade Football Romances

A hot football player and a bet–what more could you want for Valentine’s day?

Ziggy Brady, center for the Denver Storm, doesn’t expect to dance with the woman who broke his heart ten years ago. But a bet issued by the owner of the Storm, is the catalyst for asking her. He certainly can’t believe she slaps him, and he really doesn’t know what to do when she throws in his face the fact her boyfriend is proposing later that night. The truth, is that Sophia Charles will always be his biggest regret.

Sophia Charles doesn’t want to dance with Ziggy Brady at a fundraiser; but his brother has ALS and she actually likes Ty. Ziggy, on the other hand, has serious ego issues and the media doesn’t help them by calling him Aquaman. When Ziggy shows up at her office asking her to go on a ‘bucket list’ trip for Ty to help create awareness and raise money to find a cure for ALS, she reluctantly agrees.

The No Regrets Tour consists of: driving cross country in a Retro RV, visiting an old Prison, staying at a Haunted Mansion, rafting the Snake River, and putting Graffiti Art on Devil’s Tower -which will most-likely land them in jail.

Sophia and Ziggy find themselves unable to stay away from one another. When Ty confesses to writing a bogus break up letter from Ziggy to Sophia ten years ago, all the reasons they should stay away from one another melt away. And they find themselves, laughing and talking and kissing and catching up for all the time they missed out on.

When Ty has a break down and the tour comes to a halt, they must make a choice–walk away from it all or forgive and have No Regrets!

From Taylor:

Ziggy might be one of my favorite characters because he’s been so broken by losing the love of his life the past ten years.
Through misunderstandings and intentional attacks, they never got their chance until now!
And watching their love story unwind was–gooey and swoony and so much fun!
I hope you love this second chance love story as much as I did!
Also, the Brady Brothers have a holy path to walk. One where they unite together for their brother, Ty, recently diagnosed with ALS. This disease is near and dear to my heart because I recently had a friend pass away from it. And my friend–changed my life by showing me how to better follow the Savior’s example through her smile in the face of heartache. Through her devotion when no one would have blamed her for falling apart. I miss her. And I hope more awareness will be created through my books. More empathy. More hope. More faith. And eventually a cure!
Thank you for reading and thank you for your love!

A portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to finding a cure for ALS.

Praise for The No Regrets Groom

Grab a box of tissues and get ready for tears and plenty of laughter! I’ve totally fallen for the Brady family-you get to know a little bit more of all of them in The No Regrets Groom. I’m looking forward to all of their stories with eager anticipation! Ziggy and Sophia’s love story is beautiful and romantic, crazy and laugh out loud fun, and inspiring with it’s lovely message of forgiveness, family, grace, and second chances. There is a wonderful theme running through this book that everything will happen, as it is supposed to, in God’s perfect timing. I giggled and sniffled through this book along with all of the wonderful characters, and in the end, despite having to stop multiple times to wipe my eyes, at the end of the book I’m smiling. I LOVED the ending!!!! ~Sarah Sarber

The No Regrets Groom is a sweet romance about a couple that loved each other in their school days, but due to family meddling are separated for years. Taylor Hart writes a fun and moving love story about them. The books also deals with ALS, and somehow, Ms. Hart manages to give it the seriousness that it calls for, while writing a beautiful romance. I loved the camaraderie and solidarity of the football teammates and of the Brady brothers. There is amazing forgiveness illustrated in the story. I love the idea of living such a life as to have no regrets. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this well-written story. ~LGS

Shakespeare revisited

Italian Honeymoon by Reina M. Williams

Get whisked away on a sweet, romantic European vacation with the Lovestruck Billionaires! When love strikes, these billionaires must risk their most valuable assets–their hearts.

Julia Ross can’t believe her sister is married. They’d promised each other they’d stay single, but now it’s just Julia, facing another change in her well-ordered life. And then there’s the groom’s brother, Romeo, who wants to change even more–he and his family want to compete with her family’s restaurants, and entice her to work for them. But nothing about Romeo Bianchi is enticing…until he proposes.
Romeo Bianchi likes to shake things up–on his terms–and a fake wedding to Julia Ross seems like the perfect opportunity to rattle both of their families. But when their pretend marriage causes real problems, the two decide to face them together, until love strikes and Julia runs scared. Then they both have to decide if change is a price they’re willing to pay for their happily ever after.

She set her glass on a nearby table and brushed her hands, as if to rid herself of this stuck feeling. She needed to do something. She needed a change.

Maybe it was time to plan starting her own restaurant. But not at this moment. Since she’d already said her congrats and all to the happy couple, she headed upstairs to the bridesmaids’ room, where she and Elissa and Zoe had gotten ready before the ceremony earlier.

When she got to the elevator and pressed the button, Danton’s younger brother, Romeo, sauntered up to her, a drink in hand.

“Jules, leaving the party?” He downed the rest of his drink and set the glass on the floor.

Ugh. No consideration. And only her sister and Elissa’s best friend, Zoe, called her Jules. Where did this guy get off? He and his ruthless family could all rot. She crossed her arms and clenched her jaw. She had to be polite, for Elissa’s sake. At least he wasn’t bad to look at, all lean and athletic looking, but deceptively boyish, with that stupid cute smile and dimple in his left cheek.

So she’d eyed him during the ceremony. Checking out the enemy was all. Romeo’s family seemed to have it in for Dad, and she had no idea why. As usual, Dad was closed-mouth about the situation. She tightened her arms against her chest.

Supposedly, Danton had made them stop the takeover attempts. That didn’t excuse Romeo and his family, especially since now there were rumors that they were planning to scoop up some properties in the area to open rival restaurants.

They boarded the elevator. Romeo gave her that stupid smile and asked her what floor. She pushed the button herself. He shrugged, but didn’t push a button. Oh, great. He was either on the same floor or planning on following her. Well, she knew the head of security here, so he’d better watch himself. The doors closed and they glided up.

Romeo looked at her again. Shoot, he had fine eyes, all bluish-grey, like her favorite storm clouds over the city…and fine pecs, and broad shoulders, and, yes, he was fine. But she wasn’t minding that, not one bit.

Ugh. She better watch herself—more like check her eyesight if she couldn’t see right through Romeo Bianchi.

Praise for Reina’s books:

“This is the sort of story I would happily recommend to my mum or grandma, or even a teenage reader.” ~Long and Short Reviews

“I recommend if you’re looking for something lighthearted.”~Kathleen, Amazon review

“A wonderful afternoon read with a cuppa and a few iced tea biscuits….” ~Susanne, Meditative Meanderings

“All the stories had lovely themes of opening and awakening – whether it is to new possibilities, love, or a new path in life. …for those who enjoy sweet and light-hearted reads these novellas are a perfect fit!” ~Meredith, Austenesque Reviews

Chance for a do-over

Meant for You by Raneé S. Clark

A hometown hero who’s suffering a personal crisis. A single-mom who’s back on her feet again. And the what-ifs they finally have a chance of seeing come true.

A year after her divorce, Chelsea Lewis spends most of her days working part-time at her cousin’s bakery and hiding veggies in her picky son’s lunches. Then she reconnects with an old friend who helps Chelsea in all the ways she’s forgotten she needs—including romantic ones.

Former football player, DJ Kaiser, is back in his hometown, working as a fireman to serve his community, but after nearly burning down his own house with a barbeque and wrecking the Chief’s truck, his mistakes are stacked against him—until he sets out to ease the stress of Chelsea’s load. Serving her has him feeling like a hero again.

When Chelsea’s ex shows up and begs Chelsea to move closer so his young son doesn’t grow up without his father, Chelsea and DJ have to consider what’s best for Chelsea’s little family, even if that means sacrificing the relationship that has saved them both.

They sat there, staring at each other for a moment that kept stretching out. Embarrassment crept over her expression, but she didn’t look away. He reached up with the hand that wasn’t around her shoulder and let his fingers graze over her cheek, feeling the heat there. She took a deep breath, and he had to as well. He wanted to kiss her, to take care of her and help her and . . . be everything for her. He slid his hand around her neck and guided her closer. They stared at each other.

“DJ?” she asked in a soft voice.

He couldn’t pull completely away. He swallowed. “What am I doing?” he whispered.

She tipped her head back. “What do you want to do?”

“That’s simple,” he said with a laugh. “I just . . . we can’t do half-measures here, can we?” Brady was a huge obstacle he didn’t know how to get over, as much as every moment with Chelsea drew her to him.

“No, we can’t,” she agreed.

Still, neither of them moved. Neither of them got up and walked away from this tipping point. He fingered a piece of her hair that fell in front of her shoulder. “He’s like my brother and I don’t know if there’s any point where this won’t feel like I’m betraying him . . . even . . . even if being with you might be more important.”

She settled her hands at his waist, gripping the sides of his T-shirt. “I hate that this has to be so complicated.” She tipped her head so that her forehead rested against his shoulder.

He pressed his cheek to the side of her head. “I know.” He lifted both of his hands to rest behind her neck and tilted her face back up to him, brushing a thumb along one of her cheeks. “I know.” He studied her from inches away, heat spreading through his chest.

Kiss her?

Walk away?

What do I do?

Her expression must mirror back his emotions. Fear. Uncertainty. Longing.

Did he want to take the next step and deal with the consequences? He should make the decision soon, especially if he wanted it more than he was scared of it. Any moment, he might come to his senses. They both might.

“I want this,” she whispered.

That was all it took to make his decision.

“From page one, readers will delight in the realistic qualities of the characters as they come to life through their flaws and weaknesses, but also their strengths and triumphs.” -Singing Librarian Books

“I’m not sure I’ve ever read an author who can show personal growth as well as Clark does.” -Amazon Review

“I could not put this book down. Once it started I HAD to know how it ended… I felt invested in Chelsea’s story.” Good Reads Review

Author Raneé S. Clark

During her early years of reading, Raneé S. Clark devoured fantasy books, which continued into her adulthood—since she often believes that a well-written romance novel is a delightful fantasy.

Raneé is the author of four contemporary romances and one historical novel, Beneath the Bellemont Sky.
