ROMAN REUNION by Crystal Jordan

Destination Desire #3

Karen Patton’s life is falling apart. She signed divorce papers, quit her job, and moved back to her hometown into an apartment that couldn’t feel less like home. With two weeks of free time before she starts work at the Half Moon Bay Public Library, she’s crawling the walls, trying desperately not to miss the man who chose his career over her.


When an old college friend invites her to Italy for an impromptu wedding, she jumps at the chance to focus on something other than her own misery.


Tate Patton is doing his best to ignore the divorce papers that just landed on his desk. A rational, reasonable man would sign and be done with it. Instead, he seizes upon a wedding invitation to do something completely impetuous—ignore the papers and fly to Rome.


When they lay eyes on each other, the sparks fly as hot as the first time they met. Maybe the more mature versions of themselves can fix what’s broken. Their love is too strong not to try…

Dinner was a lesson in torment. Valentina’s grandmother had pushed Karen into the chair next to Tate…and no one in their right mind argued with that woman. Not to mention, Karen had had no desire to bring more attention to the fact that Tate and she were the antithesis of the happy couple Gio and Valentina presented. Tate cast the occasional glance in Karen’s direction, but said little, which should have been comforting, but instead just felt weird. The longer she had to sit next to him, the more surreal the situation became, and the more wine she drank. Not the most mature way to handle things, but she was at a party in Italy. The vino flowed freely.

It was well after midnight by the time Gio poured her into a taxi. He all but shoved Tate in after her, who looked none too sober himself. They tumbled out in front of their hotel, and the world tilted oddly in front of her eyes. She blinked hard, trying to focus enough to get in the door.

“Oooooops,” Tate said, catching her arm when she staggered. A sweet tingle went down her skin. She frowned. There was a reason that should be a bad thing, but she wasn’t really certain what it was. Oh, yes. The divorce.

They bumped into each other a few times on their way to the elevator, and on the fourth bump, she burst into laughter. It echoed in the lobby and she clamped a hand over her mouth, eyes wide. Tate seemed to think that was hilarious because then he laughed too.

“We’re loud,” she whispered, tilting toward him, then back.

He nodded and pushed the button to call the elevator. They collided when they both tried to enter the car at the same time, which made them chortle.

“Whoops. Manners.” Tate waved her in first, then covered his mouth to smother a drunken hiccup. “Ladies first.”


Inside, he stared at the buttons with ferocious concentration. “What floor are you on?”

“The third, but they number things weirdly here,” she said knowledgably, proud that she remembered. Right now, she was a bit vague on her own name. “The ground floor is zero.”

“Okay. Good.” His finger circled the buttons a few times before he managed to hit the right one. “I’m on the third floor too.”

“That’s nice.” She hummed a little song as they began to slide upward. Very slowly. She’d never been in an elevator so slow. The only way she knew they were moving was the dial that pinged over to the next floor.

“I wanted to say…you look really pretty tonight. I like your new hair.” He squinted. “Don’t know if I told you that before, but I really, really like it. You’re beautiful, Karen.”

“Thank you. That’s so sweet.” A silly grin spread on her face, and warmth bloomed inside her.

“I have some Prosecco in my room. Got it when I was buying a bottle of wine to bring to dinner.” He swayed as the elevator lurched to a stop on their floor. “Want to share a glass with me?”

“Oooh, Prosecco.” That stuff was like Italian champagne with all kinds of fizzy bubbly goodness. She’d always loved it. “Okay.”

A tiny warning bell went off in the back of her head, but she wanted to feel fizzy and bubbly inside, so she ignored it and followed Tate into his room. They bumped into each other again as he tried to turn and shut the door and they both burst into guffaws.

“Shh,” he said, the sound slurring. “We don’t want to be too loud and get in trouble.”

She nodded sagely. “Then we wouldn’t get to have Prosecco.”

A snigger of laughter came from his nose as he reached around her to lock the door. She ended up pressed against the wood, which was good because her balance wasn’t too great. Tate’s chest slid over hers and that old spark of chemistry that had never really extinguished made her nipples tighten and a rush of heated warmth sluiced down her body. Mmm, and didn’t that feel nice? She closed her eyes to savor the sensation, a grin tipping up her lips.

“I would loooove to know what you’re thinking right now.” Tate’s breath brushed over her neck as he spoke, and it made goose bumps shiver down her skin. That felt nice too. His nose nuzzled into the sensitive spot just below her ear. “You smell so good, Karen.”

Guest Post! MY HIGHLAND SPY by Victoria Roberts

Guest Post! MY HIGHLAND SPY by Victoria Roberts

We are very excited to have Author Victoria Roberts with us today!

I have had the wonderful opportunity to read her latest release MY HIGHLAND SPY

and it is FANTASTIC!


My Highland Spy

By Victoria Roberts

Sourcebooks Casablanca

Historical Romance

September 2, 2014


This Highland Laird won’t bow to the Crown

Laird Ruairi Sutherland refuses to send his only son away to be educated by the English. And he most definitely will not appear in Edinburgh to pay homage to a liege who has no respect for Scotland. So he does what any laird would do—he lies to the king. The last thing Ruairi expects is a beautiful English governess to appear on his doorstep.


But this lady spy might make him…

Lady Ravenna Walsingham is a seasoned spy who is sent to the savage Highlands to uncover a nefarious plot against the Crown. Playing the part of an English governess—a job easier said than done—she infiltrates the home of Laird Sutherland, a suspected conspirator.


If she doesn’t betray him first

Ravenna soon discovers that the only real threat Sutherland poses is to her heart. But will the proud Highland laird ever forgive her when he discovers the woman he loves in an English spy?

Buy Links: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Books-A-Million


Thank you so much for having me today at Joyfully Reviewed.


Why spies? They’re so much fun to write!


My new Highland Spies series revolves around four English sisters and their escapades in the Scottish Highlands. The first book in the series, My Highland Spy, is about Lady Ravenna Walsingham who is a spy for the Crown. Funny thing is… Ravenna’s three younger sisters have no clue what she does. In fact, Ravenna’s sister believes Ravenna is selling herself because their uncle has stolen the Walsingham family fortune. Boy was her sister ever wrong!


I’ve always loved a good spy story, and I never tire of James Bond. But I think arse-kicking heroines make the best spies, especially when they’re sent to the Scottish Highlands to spy on the wild lairds. These proper English ladies are in for a big surprise when they come face to face with the burly Scots.


Don’t get me wrong. These women can handle themselves, but the poor Scots have no idea what to make of them, especially when the women have an “I take no prisoners” attitude. Little did the Walsingham sister’s know that they’ve captured the hearts of these Highland men. Will the ladies fulfill their duty to the Crown, or will love conquer all?


What do you love most about spies? Sourcebooks will give away one paperback copy of My Highland Spy (US and Canada only, please.)


“An exciting Highland tale of intrigue, betrayal, and love.”

—Hannah Howell, New York Times bestselling author of Highland Master


“Roberts’ newest features a surprise-laden, quick-paced plot, replete with unconventional and fiercely independent characters. Her lyrical prose grabs readers’ attention, and the high level of emotional tension simply adds to the depth of the story. This book begs to be read and reread.”

I (Miranda) recently went to Authors After Dark in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Authors After Dark is an Author/Reader convention held every year in August.

Releasing Today!

Taking A Shot

Katie Weber has lost her health due to leukemia, and now her chemotherapy treatments have taken her hair. She’s not about to show up to her senior prom bald and let her classmates steal her dignity, too. Prom is no place for a girl who looks more like an alien than a high school student, especially when her so-called friends all dropped her like she had the plague at the first mention of the word cancer. Katie could never get up the courage to ask Jamie—her crush for almost two years, ever since he joined her dad’s pro hockey team—to take her. Not with the way she looks now. Besides, her dad would absolutely murder him.

Jamie Babcock knows its bad news to fall for his Portland Storm teammate’s daughter, but he’s had a thing for Katie since the first time he met her when he was just a wide-eyed, eighteen-year-old rookie. Now cancer might take her away before he ever grows the balls to do anything about it, though. Her father won’t be happy about it, but Jamie has to take a shot and ask to take her to her prom. It seems like Katie has just about given up, and he can’t let her go without giving her some good memories…something to hold on to. She’s still got her whole life ahead of her—she just has to keep living it. If he can convince her of that, nothing her father might do to him will matter.
