This is the complete series for the Kane family.
The Kanes follows Rachael and Richard Kane before they had Spencer, Ryan, Matt, and Danielle.

The eighties were well before technology became life. Dating wasn’t a swipe left kind of thing. It was chance encounters, exchanged numbers on pieces of paper, and waiting by the telephone so you didn’t miss a call.
And yet…Richard Kane still found his forever in Rachael and didn’t let her go.

Come see how the Kane boys and the one Kane princess came to be.

This is a great holiday bundle -if you haven’t read them. Free with Kindle Unlimited to borrow,    Lisa

Saints Protection & Investigation
A private investigation business, pulling together men from the CIA, FBI, ATF, DEA, Border Patrol, SEALs, and police, devoted to the missions that no one else wanted or could solve.

Nick Stone – a stoic, dedicated FBI agent. His life was neat and orderly, just the way he liked it. Bayley Hanssen – a vivacious romance novelist and bookstore owner, thrived on chaos.

When the two collided when he was on a stakeout, she turned his life upside down. Disenchanted with the political posturing of his superiors, the lure of working for the Saints became a reality, as he discovered life with the fun-loving Bayley was just what he needed.

When human traffickers struck close to home, Nick and the Saints fought to keep Bayley safe.

****Due to scenes of an explicit sexual nature and language that some consider crude, please be warned – for 18+ only! If you do not like alphas with heart who fall instantly in love with strong female characters while dealing with real life issues…again be warned!!*****

My Saturday Review- I am a big fan of this author and this is book 9 of the Saints Protection & Investigation. If you are not familiar with this series- start with Book 1 that will fill you in with the team ,its members and the boss Jack. Each team member has found there One and it’s Nicks time. Not officially part of the team Nick has been the teams -FBI contact and have worked with Jack’s team and knows what they do. Protect and Solve cases know one else can. And when he needs help with his One- Jacks team is who he will call. Maybe its time for Nick to switch sides and become a Saint. 

  • Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors, merchants, archers, repentant thieves, children, brewers, pawnbrokers and students in various cities and countries around Europe.

Fatal Knockout * Julie Bailes

BookCover6x9_Color_300 Front.png

FATAL KNOCKOUT by Julie Bailes
MMA Romantic Suspense


It’s an action some encourage and others dissuade. Since the day I was born, fighting has been instilled into my mind. Regardless of your opinion, it’s something we all do. At some point in time, consciously or subconsciously—either emotionally, physically, or spiritually—we struggle. Many will strive to withstand their battles, but only those who were born to fight will overcome them.

A true fighter lacks weakness. They abstain from carelessness and refrain from trusting their opponents, but most importantly, they never accept defeat.

I am a true born fighter. Each second of every day, I fight. Rip the ones I love most away from me, I kill. If I’ve learned anything from this life, it’s to always expect the unexpected. As long as my heart continues to beat, and no matter the costs, I will be victorious.

Fatal Knockout 99C BANNER.png

“Madisyn?” He draws in a sharp breath.


He closes his eyes and says, “I’m trying my best not to kiss you.”
Without hesitation, I tell him, “Don’t.”

His voice is moderately alarmed when he asks, “Don’t what?”

I lift my glove-covered hand and place it atop of his. “Don’t try not to kiss me.”

I should be ashamed of myself for making out with a guy I hardly know, but I’m not. I should tear my lips from his and stop this craziness here and now, but I won’t.

The kiss is fierce, passionate, all-consuming, and it sends a fiery sensation coursing through my veins. Blaze’s kiss breathes life, and in this moment, lost in his kiss, I am alive.

Michael Weekly talks about Bon Chance Press –

Are you a Book Reader or Blogger? Are maybe an Author ? Today’s post is for You. 

On Lisa Book Blog I will be introducing you too Michael Weekly from the new Bon Chance Press. 

MainLogo (1)

“Bon Chance” is a Cajun term meaning “Good Luck!” Here at BCP, we believe every author needs a little luck to go with their natural talent, drive, and hard work. That’s why we’re here! We believe wholeheartedly that publishing companies should put the authors first, so we put our brains together and opened up a press created by and for authors. We also believe that millions of talented authors are never given a fair chance to get their lovely words out there for the whole world to see, simply because they are the wrong color, gender, age, etcetera, or they write in the “wrong genre.” That’s why we’re here!  Bon Chance website

Micheal and I talk about what makes Bon Chance special in this competitive market –

1)  What is your company mission statement?
Our press was created by authors, for authors. Meaning, everyone who is a part of the BCP family is an author, so we know exactly what authors not only need but want in a publisher. Bon Chance means “good luck” in Cajun Creole. We also believe that every author needs a little luck to go with their passion, talent, and hard work. That’s where we come in!
 2) What changes are you making in the book industry ?
BCP strives to change the industry by being the press who works hand in hand with their authors and puts their needs above our own. Plus, we are a press that doesn’t just say we are open to diverse literature, but we actually embrace #ownvoices and authors from every walk of life.
 3) What kind of services will you offer to your authors  ? Both too new and published authors?
For both new and established authors, we offer many services and terms that most indies won’t touch. For example, we have hired a team of the best editors, graphic designers, and bloggers to help our authors not only make their book something we can all be proud of, but marketable and competitive in the industry. This includes marketing services, such as book trailers, blog tours, and cover reveals. We also offer contract terms that are as good, if not better, than most indies out there. We hide nothing and everything an author needs to know is clearly displayed on the FAQ Page of our website.
 4)  I see you are seeking  submissions ? What advice do  you have for new authors ?
I would tell new authors to do their research first and foremost. It’s not just enough to write a killer novel. You have to present your novel in a professional way that will stand out from the crowd. This means to make sure your query letter is properly written and formatted and that you’ve followed not only the industry guidelines but our guidelines, as well. Again, our submission requirements are clearly displayed on the Submission Page of our website.
 5) Where do you see your company in 5 Years ?
In 5 years, I’d love to see BCP ranked as a strong competitor in the industry. I’d like us to have maintained the image and reputation we are striving hard to establish. I’d love to see us publishing award-winning and best-selling novels. It’s more important to me, however, to have a personal relationship with each author in our family than it is to be a multi-million dollar press. Bigger is not always better. I’d rather have time to devote to each book and every author than to be so bogged down with books that I don’t even know my authors’ names. That being said, I do want to see us continue to grow along the same trajectory we’re currently experiencing.

His Boss Lady by Mina s Love

Preston stormed into my life at the perfect time. He was everything I needed at the moment: smart, virile, arrogant, and beautiful.

He was also…MINE.

I was on the cusp of finalizing one of the most important business deals of my company’s history—my father’s company.

Preston was the key to its success, but I needed more from him than just financial reports. I needed his trust, his loyalty, and I needed him tied to my bed, begging for a high only I could give him. I needed him…

Collared and Owned.

People lie…

It was my own damned fault for putting my trust in the one person who controlled the desires that burned inside of me.
He lied to me.
He betrayed me.
Took away my ability to control.
I’m lost, searching for anything to take the pain away.

Preston is now in the hands of the authorities, fighting for his freedom. The odds are stacked against him but one thing remains constant…

His love for Nadia.

With Nadia in turmoil, Preston decides to clear his name and in the process, win back the one woman who controls his heart. They continue the chase, fighting their intense connection to one another, fighting for control. While Nadia wrestles with her emotions while saving her company’s image, Preston’s enemies grow in numbers as he continues to battle the impossible. He’s forced to confront his enemies no matter the consequence, making sure he doesn’t lose sight of the ultimate goal…

Owning it all…

A novel of suspense, family ties, and twisted passions from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Obsession

book link     New Release from this great author.

The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it’s kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine’s aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don’t talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she’s dead. But she isn’t. She is not far away, part of a new family, one she never chose—and her mind has been shattered…

When a bartender leaves the resort late one night, and Bo and Cal discover her battered body in the snow, it’s the first sign that danger lurks in the mountains that surround them. The police suspect Cal, but Bo finds herself trusting him—and turning to him as another woman is murdered and the Longbows are stunned by Alice’s sudden reappearance. The twisted story she has to tell about the past—and the threat that follows in her wake—will test the bonds of this strong family, and thrust Bodine into a darkness she could never have imagined.



A dragon as a fake fiance? Risky…

book link     Free with Kindle Unlimited

Dante Gildenstern, leader of the noble metal dragons, used to have it all. Wealth, privilege, women fawning all over his beauty. Now, newly awakened in the modern world, his powers are restrained and he’s forced to work at a dating club with the other noble metal dragons in an effort to acquaint them with humanity and hopefully help them find mates. The only problem? Dante isn’t interested in humans. That is until Ella Stanton walks in, all curves and no-nonsense, needing his help more than she may even know.

Ella Stanton needs a date and she isn’t bothered by all those bad reviews for Date-A-Dragon. They’re her last hope for a date to her sister’s wedding in her hometown, and she isn’t about to go alone. So gorgeous, golden Dante it is, despite his initial frostiness and slightly ego-maniacal behavior. He’s unlike any man she has ever met, the sexiest, the strongest, and sometimes he seems to be from another world altogether. But the closer she gets to Dante, the more she realizes there might be more to this pretty boy beneath the surface.

In spite of Ella’s reservations, Dante’s in it to win her heart from the get go. And with a little luck and a lot of romance, the overprotective dragon just may win over his sexy mate. But even the strongest of dragons can’t anticipate the dangers lurking in the mountains of Ella’s hometown.

Gold is the first book in the Date-A-Dragon series! It contains ridiculously hot dragons, steamy romance, and strong, curvy women. Enjoy! 

This series is a spin-off of the Rent-A-Dragon series, found here:

Love and commitment might be great. You know, for my brothers. Not for me. But then, in a chance meeting, I came across her. Why was she different? I couldn’t say for sure. Maybe it was the fact that she was the most gorgeous woman I had ever seen. Maybe it was the the sharp edges she wore like a shield that made me want to see what was beneath. Or maybe it had something to do with whatever secret she was trying so desperately to hide.


Love and commitment weren’t even in the realm of possibilities for me. My life had one purpose, one mission, and I couldn’t afford to let anyone get in the way. But then there was Mark Mallick – ladies man, loanshark enforcer, and very determined to know my secrets.

That was problematic any day, but especially so with him. Why? Maybe because the things he would offer me, the things he would show me were possibilities for my life could make me completely reevaluate the mission that had completely consumed the last ten years of my life.

But could I have those things? Could I escape the life I had been trapped in for so long? With Mark Mallick by my side, I was thinking maybe it was possible…

I was quick to Buy and Read this one. If you are a fan of her other books don’t miss out this newest release. If you haven’t read this author starts with The Henchmen MC series -a great MC series at its best .   Lisa 



Review – Midnight Fever

It’s Live !

5-MidnightFever_600x900 (1)


Fighting fire with fire


Nick Mancino always gets what he wants — until now. Despite his seductive persistence, brainy, beautiful scientist Kay Hudson continues to elude him. However, Nick was a Navy Seal, and an FBI Special Agent, so giving up isn’t an option.

Ever since that incendiary kiss they shared when Nick saved her beloved grandfather’s life, Kay’s been having red hot fever dreams about Nick, but she’s got no business being tempted by anything. She’s on the verge of risking her reputation, her career, her very life, to blow the lid off a deadly bioweapons conspiracy, and Nick’s smoldering eyes, rock-hard body and hot, searching lips should be the very last thing on her mind. 

However, with so much to lose, she deserves one blazing night of pleasure with Nick before she disappears forever.


But Nick won’t let her face her demons alone . . . and they  will have to face down an enemy that could consume them…and the entire world.


My Review- I was excited to get an early copy of Lisa Marie Rice- Midnight Fever another book in her Midnight Man series. I was not disappointed in this newest book. Nick is the newest gut to join the team and hes had feeling about Kay since helping with her grandfathers case. But Kay is in trouble -but if you have to be in trouble you want these guys in your corner. An exciting follow up in this great series. If you haven’t read this series do – you will fall in love with all the characters from these books.  Lisa

Sometimes love speaks for itself…


Sometimes love speaks for itself…

After an accident in the line of duty, firefighter Roberto DeRosa’s life is turned upside down. His career fighting fires is over, and he’s left with an uncertain future and an injury that makes communicating difficult for him. The only time words flow easily is when they’re lyrics and he has a guitar in his hands. Talking to women is definitely out, especially if they have bright blue eyes that seem to see right into his soul.

Dani Hodge is on the brink of realizing her dream of opening a small combination wine and book store in San Diego’s funky Ocean Beach neighborhood. But before she can open the doors, there’s work to be done, more work than she can do herself.

When the tattooed guy who completely ignored her at a bar walks by and offers her a hand wrangling a tile saw, Dani can’t afford to say no—and why would she say no to Mr. Strong and Silent when his stare conveys more than words could?

Excerpt #1

I caught Trent’s attention at the bar, putting my back to the girl and focusing on getting my heart to slow down, letting my blood cool.

And just when I’d gotten control of myself again, she was right fucking next to me, and my mind went blank.

Or most parts of my mind, at least. The parts in charge of caveman stuff—the parts that screamed at me to pick her up, throw her over my shoulder, and find a wall to fuck her against—those parts were working fine. Unfortunately.

“Hi,” she said.

Shit. Shit, shit, shit.

I stared at her. I was blank. I reached for a word to give her and my mind was empty. Even the one word she’d said would have been fine. I could have parroted it back to her. But it had fluttered up into the noise and light inside the bar and evaporated. Even that one simple word was out of my reach.

I watched her expression change. She’d said “hi” like she was extending a bridge, a thin filament I might just be able to risk stepping onto. But as she waited for me to return her greeting, to say fucking anything at all, the bridge dissolved.

And her face closed up. The sparkle in her bright eyes faded, and her energy pulled back inside her, leaving me cold again. A mixture of fear and surprise replaced the glow on her face, and I felt both guilty and monstrous as I watched what it did to her. She let other words fall between us. Nonsense, really. I’d made her uncomfortable, unhappy. And I already knew she was a girl I never wanted to see unhappy.

Finally, she turned around and went back to her table, pulled the other girl toward the door, and disappeared into the night beyond. And the

club was extinguished.

This was the first time reading this author. It was a heart warming book about two people who has been hurt Rob (physical) and Dani in her relationship. Because Rob had been hurt in a fire he has struggled with words and a purpose – and Dani has a bad history of men leaving her. But when there relationship starts getting serious she pulls back and Rob has demons he needs to fight. But they both become stronger as they work out there problems. A good read and look forward to reading more from this author.  Lisa
