Donna Michaels has always been at the top of my cowboy/military romance book 1-click list and this story right here is the perfect example of why her books are there. I read this story when it was first published and was excited to read again with it’s new content and wasn’t disappointed.
Everything about Finn’s Surprise hits my buttons for the makings of a fantastic romance that needs to be read more than once.
The ex-military man who is also a cowboy, check. He’s brooding and sexy as sin, check. A strong female character who can stand on her own to feet, but love being whisked away into the strong arms of her man. CHECK CHECK CHECK!
Donna Michaels style of writing keeps me smiling. It’s fun, sensual and I eat up every book she writes.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Rating: 5 out of 5.

He never expected his surprise to be such a precious gift…
Finn Brennan was used to his brother playing practical jokes, but this time he’s gone too far–sending him a woman as a ranch hand, and not just a woman, but a Marine.
Discharged when her mother took ill, Lt. Camilla Walker is happy to help out at her former CO’s family’s dude ranch until he returns from deployment. Keeping busy is the best medicine since her mother’s passing, but she never expected to be thrust into a mistaken engagement to his sexy, twin–a former Navy SEAL who hates the Corps.
The Corps took Finn’s father, his girlfriend and threatened his naval career. He’s worked hard for another shot at getting back to active duty and won’t let his brother’s prank interfere. The last thing he needs is the temptation of a headstrong, unyielding, hot Marine getting in his way.

Royal Pines Book 2
Payback is sweeter when the heart is involved.
Former Marine Trisha Jennings has a bright future—law school, a job in her father’s firm, and an engagement to a junior partner…there’s just one problem. Those are her father’s dreams, not hers. She doesn’t want to be a lawyer or a wife.
So when her friend’s fiancé tosses her a lifeline in the form of a fake engagement to his twin—her former CO—she grabs on with both hands. After all, the captain’s strong and immovable, the perfect deterrent against her controlling father.
Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he’s hot and she’s had a thing for him for years.
Former Marine Captain Brett Brennan loves a good practical joke, until the boot is on the other foot and he finds himself in a fake engagement to his sexy, former corporal. Realizing she is struggling to come to terms with an incident from their last deployment, and knowing his ranch is a great place to heal, he uses their fake engagement to help. Afterall, he’d always have his men’s six.
But Trisha is no longer a corporal under his command and out of uniform, she is all woman. He wasn’t expecting the strong attraction to the beauty or the fierce desire to help and protect her. Soon, it has him forgetting their prank engagement is just for show. Who knew payback could be so sweet?
**Formally known as Cowboy Payback, now updated with new revisions and additional words**

Are you a fan of ‘The King’?
Were you left with a gaping hole in your heart when you heard the news Elvis Presley had passed, but secretly prayed it was all a hoax?
Do you believe the one and only, true King of Rock and Roll is alive?
Could he really deceive the world and stay hidden for over forty years, fooling us all?
And why would he go to such lengths to hide from the world full of adoring fans, leaving money and fame by the wayside?
I’ve asked myself these questions many times over the years. I was seven when Elvis passed away. Although young, I was like many fans who cried with the news of Elvis’s death. I remember the layers of flowers and photographs of mourners lined up to view the open casket at Graceland.
I was fortunate to recently read the upcoming release of Lee Beckett’s debut book;
‘I Just Can’t Help Believin’…: Conspiracy Theory Book One – Elvis Presley’.
While turning the pages, I was brought back to my memories of Elvis and the circumstances behind his sudden passing. Lee Beckett has opened the door to the possibility that Elvis did indeed fake his own death and what the motivation may have been behind the deception.
The enjoyment I received while stepping back in time reading about Elvis’s life brought a smile to my face. That’s probably odd for you to hear as we are talking about Elvis’s death, but I’m a fan of the legend and his music, therefore reading his life story is entertaining to me.
Starting with a bit of known background, mixed with details of Presley’s life I was unaware of, left little cracks in the hard set line that Elvis Aron Presley died on August 16, 1977. The way Lee Beckett has laid out the facts and possibility of Elvis being alive, allows the reader to come to their own conclusion.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I love to look at things from all angles and will listen when someone points out what they believe to be evidence supporting their beliefs. It intrigues me to hear the maybe and what if or perhaps it went this way. Sort of like the classic board game Clue, if this happened, then it must be Colon Mustard, with the candlestick in the conservatory. For me it was always the candlestick. My point being, listening to these conspiracy theories is fun. Add in Elvis Presley and I was hooked.
Will the mystery behind Elvis Presley’s death or disappearance ever be revealed? I don’t know the answer to that, but I can say this book has me wanting to do some investigating of my own.
Lee Beckett has written a book which is entertaining, thought provoking and one I recommend everyone read.

I Just Can’t Help Believin’…:
Conspiracy Theory Book One – Elvis Presley
When paramedics, Ulysses Jones and Charles Crosby, were called to Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and roll, they didn’t know what to expect.
After being directed upstairs by a bodyguard, they found a man lying on the bathroom floor, surrounded by a group of people. Elvis’s girlfriend, Ginger Alden, as well as his road manager and close friend, Joe Esposito, were amongst them.
The man lay on his back with pajama bottoms down around his knees and his top open exposing dark blue, almost black, folds of cold flesh.
Jones immediately dropped to his knees to check for signs of life—he found none.
Afterwards, both paramedics would tell their captain they didn’t recognize the man as Elvis. In actual fact, they went as far as to say the dead man definitely wasn’t Elvis. They were warned to keep that information to themselves.
This was the beginning of the conspiracy theories that have spanned decades.

I’ve had the honor of following Luna Lopez from the beginning. Starting with her debut novella, First Kiss. Her debut was just a taste of the spectacular writing she has unleashed with her new full length novel, Where My Heart Lies.
Blogging has given me the opportunity to step outside of my self-imposed reading boundaries. Luna’s stories of lesbian relationships have introduced me to a romance genre I would never have searched out on my own. (more…)
