When the Stars Come Out
A Cottonbloom Novel
By Laura Trentham

Cottonbloom. A beautiful, faraway place where a woman can escape her past—and find reason to stay forever in Laura Trentham's When the Stars Come Out. . .

Willa Brown never planned to stay in Cottonbloom. She was on the way to somewhere else when she landed there and found work at the Abbot brothers’ garage. . .and a sense of comfort and safety that she had never known. The same holds true for Jackson Abbott himself. With one glance in her direction, he can make Willa’s heart melt. But what begins as an unrequited crush turns into something far more powerful than Willa could have ever imagined. . .

Jackson’s most meaningful relationship has always been with his car—and he’s not afraid to admit it. Still, he can’t help but become emotionally entangled with his new star mechanic Willa, who is definitely hiding some dark secrets of her own beneath the hood. Jackson desperately wants Willa to trust him, and to seek protection in his arms. But even as the two slowly surrender to their shared attraction, the danger lurking in Willa’s past remains a stubborn obstacle. Can she open up enough to give them both a chance at having real and lasting love?

Excerpt
Willa glanced down and back up at Jackson through her lashes. The gentle, flirtatious look hit him like a punch. This time his heart kicked like he might require someone to call 911. “Do I clean up good?”
He knew what she wanted to hear and later, in the dark solitude of his bed, he’d tell her and, even better, show her. But, for now, he tempered his response, hoping to get a rise out of her. “Not bad.”
She stepped forward and punched his arm. It might have stung if she hadn’t tipped to the side as her fist made contact. Her eyes popped wide and a little huff escaped. With reaction times honed on the racetrack, he wrapped his arm around her waist, bringing her flush with his body.
“You sure you know how to operate those shoes?” This time he couldn’t keep the smile off his face.
“They don’t require a license. And I was doing fine until you showed up.”

Her admission made him feel slightly better. He wasn’t the only one who was off balance. Her body notched into his perfectly with the added inches the heels lent her. His focus dropped from her sparking eyes to her mouth. Maybe he’d kiss the gloss off them right now. His lips hovered an inch from hers. So close he could feel the ramp-up of her breathing. Or was that his breathing spinning out of control?

  Head of the class... Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out. The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy — he's platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle. Then...Callie Carpenter comes home. And knocks him right on his tight end zone. Back to school... Callie has a pretty sweet life herself...on the other side of the country. But circumstances — that she'd prefer to never speak of again — have brought her back home, helping out her parents and substitute teaching at her old high school. Now she's facing bickering, raging hormones, constant gossip, awkward weirdness, and drama galore...and that's just the teachers. Just like old times... When Garrett offers to show his former high school sweetheart the secrets of his winning teacher ways, Callie jumps at the chance - and then has to stop herself from jumping him.

January Spotlight - Amanda Bouchet Interview Part 2







AMANDA BOUCHET  
INTERVIEW
PART 2

Character Interview

  1. Hi Cat! Hi Griffin! How are you both doing?

Griffin: Hello. Well, we’re somewhat tired. Taking over the world is hard work.
Cat: Don’t listen to His Grumpiness. We’re great. I’m the Queen. We’re about to become parents. Actually, I’m kind of terrified. And excited. Good Gods…there’s a lot to think about.

  1. I love your love story, and I must say you two are always so busy! Always doing amazing, heroric things! You two are awesome!! So what do you like to do on the days when you get to relax?
Cat: What does she mean, relax?
Griffin: That’s what we do when we’re in bed.
Cat: Are you sure?
Griffin (chuckles): I’m talking about the sleeping part.
Cat: Ah, okay. Because the rest is pretty…ahem…athletic.
Griffin: I enjoy swordplay.
Cat (rolls eyes): Now that was a bad pun.
Griffin (scowls): Get your mind out of the gutter, wife.
Cat (smiles)
Griffin (sweeps Cat off for some “relaxation”)


  1. You have a lot of interactions with the Gods. So if you could be one god or goddess just for one day, who would it be and why?

Cat: I would become Poseidon so I could swim deep into the Fisan Ocean and see what’s there. I might also go to Olympus and use the mountain as a hub to visit other worlds, like Atlantis and Attica.
Griffin: I firmly reject this question. NONE of them.


  1. What is one thing about each of you that drives the other crazy?

Griffin: Cat’s terrifying disregard for her own safety, although that has significantly improved of late.
Cat: Since he thought of something, I guess I have to, too… Let’s see… Hmm… He can’t rhyme.
Griffin: That is a lie.
Cat: Oh, stop giving me the evil eye.


  1. Well, that’s all the time I have for now, but before you both go, is there anything you would like to say?

Cat: Stay away from magical creatures, steer clear of the Ice Plains, don’t call a God, and for the love of Zeus, never buy a euphoria spell.
Griffin: Thank you for interviewing us.

Well Played By J.SScott & Ruth Cardello Is Live !!

 





 


Lauren:

Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my protector and my confidant because he accepts me the way I am—and not many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.

Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.

I complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?

Graham

Sleeping with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made things complicated, and I didn't do anything that threw my life into chaos. The fiancée her brother Jack, had stolen had been part of my life plan, one more step I was taking to be somebody. Granted, I hadn't been in love with my intended bride, but I didn't really know how to love anybody.

I survived.

I pushed to achieve more.

I battled my way to the top of the heap in my pro football career..

I'm a total dick, and I don't want Lauren to see the side of me that would trample over anybody to work my way up in the world.

Lauren sees me as a hero, a title I'd never gain with anybody else in my life, so I wanted to keep her sheltered from the hard realities of my life. I wanted her to continue to think I was a nice guy when I was really just the opposite.

We never should have crossed the line of going from friends to lovers.

There's too much Lauren doesn't know about me, and I care enough about her that I don't want her to share my pain and the darkness that never sees daylight inside me.

I want her, but she's a woman I can never have. She's too smart, too sweet, and way too good for a guy like me.

Unfortunately, pushing her away becomes much more difficult than I'd planned...

REVIEW 


I love J.S.Scott  and Ruth Cardello   so when I heard  about   Well Played I literally  squealed !  and don't even   get me started   about  when the book  came up on my  kindle I was so excited ! I did a happy dance and everything lol . In this book we follow  Graham and Lauren  and its safe to this book  definitely  starts  of  on a very akward start , can you imagine  your  brother  having an affair  with his best  friend finance (  that you just happen to have  a crush on) and  you happen to  catch them in the act  ? yep  that's  a really  awkward  situation  however what   happens   after that   unfolds into a steamy and sometimes  angsty love affair  for  Graham and Lauren. I love these two together and I  was constantly   rooting for  them not matter  what happened , it was not an smooth road  to happily ever  after for these two but in away it made if  feel more  authentic and it made  you treasure  all the happy moments  they  have together  , the romance in this  book was spectaucular   and  as  usually  J.S.Scott  and Ruth Cardello  blew all my expectation   out of the water  and gave   me a  story   I adored. Well Played was a addicting , sexy  , fun , heartwarming  story and I cannot wait to get my hands on  the next books that these authors write together and if you are wondering If you should  pick  up this book the answer is yes! as soon as a you  can  !

Coming Soon from Author Ruth Cardello - Insatiable Bachelor Available February 22nd 2018

A brand new series set in a whole new world. 

Dalton: Women are a perk of my lifestyle. I work hard. I deserve to play harder. But I didn’t get on the Forbes List of Rising Entrepreneurs by getting lost in the baggage and disruption that comes with dating. I’ve seen dozens of men fail when they fall in love. Pathetic.

That's why I chose the Bachelor Tower. It was designed by a genius, my hero: the late, Garry F. Sinclair. He created an all-male haven for ambitious men who want to live like kings and play by their own rules. Casino nights, a fully equipped gym and lap pool, cigar and Scotch bar, and a media room with screens the size of the average movie theater. The list is endless. I easily network with men trying to launch their careers or those at the top who want to stay hungry. The best part: the tower attracts women, beautiful women who hang out in the lobby bar and vie for an invite upstairs. Easy, like fishing in a barrel.

Until Sinclair dies and Penny Fuller moves into the apartment next to me because the new owner doesn't share his vision.

Everyone agrees Penny can't stay. I don't want to get involved, but she doesn't understand the lengths my fellow building mates will go to to get her out. She's not only irresistibly sexy and painfully optimistic, she's also in real danger.

Siding with her would be career suicide.

Betraying her was never my intention.



J.S. "Jan" Scott is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of steamy romance. She's an avid reader of all types of books and literature. Writing what she loves to read, J.S. Scott writes both contemporary steamy romance stories and paranormal romance. They almost always feature an Alpha Male and have a happily ever after because she just can't seem to write them any other way! She lives in the beautiful Rocky Mountains with her husband and two very spoiled German Shepherds.



Ruth Cardello hit the New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers Lists for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.

What Kindle Reviewers write about her:

"Wow hot at every page. Heart stopping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."

"I'm a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story like of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners, unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in the bunch and I feel like i know the characters personally. I personally read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."

"Love this series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book. Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.
She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.
