Shifting Currents
Lissa Matthews



Blake doesn?t want a mate. No way. No how. And he certainly doesn?t want her camping on his land, floating down his stretch of river, or looking like she belongs in his bed.

But that’s exactly what he gets when he happens upon a curvy woman with shades of sunset hair named Leah.

She’s on vacation and isn?t looking for any complications, especially in the form of a shifter or the possessive?MINE?signal he gives off.

So, what are two bears to do when they’ve convinced themselves they don’t want, much less?need?anyone else?? They give in to the pull and mate, of course, but in sex only. No life commitment. No cubs. No changing the way they live: Separate and independent of each other.

Except when she leaves his mountain, Blake can’t get her off his mind and Leah can’t stop craving his particular brand of heat and gruff love making. Now, the one thing neither wanted, has come full circle, and is ready to bite them both.

Throwback Thurdsday

It’s time to add in Throwback Thursday to my bogging. I don’t have a huge backlist so until then (or when I decide to add mine into the mix) I’ll be highlighting friends and authors that I enjoy.

For my first Throwback Thursday I thought I would go SWEET CAROLINE by Lissa Matthews. This was the second book of Lissa’s that I read. It followed up ARRESTING HOLLI (which back then was Arrested Holiday). There was a lot to live up to and it did. SWEET CAROLINE, for me, was a different take on Lissa’s writing and I loved it. She can do sweet and funny and sexy then hot, dominant and delicious.

Sweet CarolineThe second time around is even sweeter?with cherries on top.

Blue Jeans and Hard Hats, Book 1

Buck doesn?t do personal projects. Until he runs into a woman wandering the aisles of the local home-improvement store, looking lost and confused. Just the way this fantasy looks at him nearly buckles his knees. In a hot second, the successful owner of a contracting company becomes a simple handyman, ready and willing to get as personal as the lady will allow.

Since her less-than-golden marriage to the local golden boy ended, Caroline?s declaration of independence includes her own business, road trips?and nipple piercings. Now it?s time to cut the last tie to her old life, but the house needs some work before she can unload it and move to her dream cabin in the mountains. Hard as it is to admit, she needs a little help.

Over the next few months, he shows her his toys, like hammers and drills, and she shows him hers?like floggers and paddles. And their attraction is the tinder that could send Caroline?s plans for an independent life up in flames?

Warning: In this book, there are sightings of glass dildos, leather belt bindings, nipple rings, wicked clamps, cherry cheesecake and a hot, yummy handyman-type guy who?s really good with his hands?

New Release: Lissa Matthews

My super good friend Lissa Matthews just had a new release in her Bar Next Door series. If you’re unfamiliar with it, just think hot, gay cowboys!

C?mon on in! The beer?s cold, the atmosphere lively, the men plentiful. Scoot your boot heels through the door and settle on a stool. Our bartenders, Malachi and Eli, aim to please and our chef, Abe aims to satisfy. We?ll help you slake your thirst and we?ll make damn sure you have a good time?

Drunken confessions. Sobering friendship. And two cowboys gambling on love…

Malachi'sWord72webMalachi’s Word, Book 1

Could he love me??Malachi has wanted to know the answer since his best friend, Daniel, confessed to being gay. He has never forgotten that long-ago conversation, or the secret hope that another confession would follow: that Daniel is in love with him.

Daniel is?and always has been?in love with Malachi. But how is he supposed to share that information without risking the only friendship that has ever mattered to him? He couldn?t handle it if he were kicked out of Malachi’s life. The best Daniel could do was move home to Texas, buy a little rundown ranch to work outside Austin, and visit the watering hole where Malachi tends bar.

Malachi knows that something heavy is riding his friend and he?s tired of watching Daniel?s downward spiral of too much beer and too many meaningless flings. Enough is enough.

Except, when he gets Daniel home and some strong coffee down his gullet, the truth comes pouring out. A truth that nearly knocks Malachi out of his boots.

Courage like that doesn?t come easy?and Malachi can only pray his answer is enough to turn lifelong friends into forever lovers.

Warning: This little tale tries to contain a gay bar, a lot of beer, a hot cowboy with a pitchfork, another one with a serious addiction to boots and coffee, and a secret yearning between the two for hot blooded, can?t wait to get naked, just leave your boots on sex. Oh, and there are doughnuts…

ElisPromise72webTime and distance have a way of sneaking up on feelings thought long buried.

Eli’s Promise, Book 2

Five years ago, Eli held the hand of his dying lover and made a promise he never intended to keep. Find someone new to love? Be happy? Fat chance. Eli?s happiness died that day. He?s doing well to put one foot in front of the other, much less risk his heart again.

The only thorn in his side is Asa, part-time waiter at The Bar Next Door, who can?t seem to take a hint.

After years of carrying more responsibility on his broad, cowboy shoulders than most people twice his age, Asa knows what he wants when he sees it. Eli. Shadows haunt the gorgeous older bartender, who also happens to be one of Asa?s bosses, but Asa doesn?t care about potential complications. He only wants to banish Eli?s ghosts?and bring Eli back to life.

Persistence, a little impatience, and Asa?s very wicked mouth go to work on Eli?s grumpy, prickly defenses. But Asa may have to block the door to love with his foot?or his heart?before Eli slams it in his face.

Warning: Beware of stubborn cowboys, sticky bar floors and hot sexy showers, eavesdropping cooks and well-meaning friends, Irish whiskey, and a young man who doesn?t understand the word no.
