Her Motherhood Wish
(The Parent Portal #3)
By Tara Taylor Quinn
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 288 Pages
April 1st 2020 by Harlequin Special Edition

He was just supposed to be a sperm donor…

What if the father of her child
is the man she’s searched for her whole life?

No Mr. Right? No problem! Attorney Cassie Thompson wants a family of her own—and she doesn’t need a man to get one. But after Cassie discovers that her baby’s health is at risk, she reluctantly contacts the sperm donor—only to find Woodrow Alexander is easily the kindest, most selfless man she’s ever met. He’s just a biological component, she keeps telling herself. He’s not her child’s real father or the husband of her dreams…right?

Affiliate links included.

Excerpt

“Mr. Alexander? This is Christine Elliott, managing director of the Parent Portal…”

The woman didn’t bother with hello. Had apparently recognized him on her caller ID. He’d had no idea the number she’d left had been to her private phone. He’d been expecting to speak with a receptionist.

“Thank you for calling back so expediently,” she said. “I’ll be as brief as possible.”

She’d said it was important. Figured they were going to honor his brother posthumously for all of the volunteer hours he’d put in, beyond residency requirements, when the clinic had just been getting up and running. He’d let Elaina know and have her call the clinic. It was her the clinic would need to speak with.

The fourth truck pulled in. Two more and he’d be set for the day. He still hadn’t said a word. The woman just continued talking.

“I have a request for contact, and the matter is urgent…”

He’d been watching a couple of workers get out of their trucks…one punched the other on the shoulder and laughed. Brothers. Wood’s gut lurched.

“A request for contact?” He wasn’t sure he’d heard her right.

“From your sperm recipient…”

Turning away so that the parking lot was no longer in view, he shook his head. “What now?”

“Your sperm donation was used four months ago, Mr. Alexander, and fertilization was successful. The recipient is currently four months pregnant and needs to speak with you.”

His sperm. It took a few seconds for him to even figure out what she was talking about. To remember years back—when his brother had first started at the clinic. They’d needed sperm donors, and Peter had hit Wood up. Always willing to help his younger brother, to support him, Wood had been fine with the donation—not so much with the pounds of paperwork he’d had to fill out. Most particularly when it came to education and occupation.

“I quit high school when my mom died so that I could go to work and support my brother,” he said now, as much to himself as to the managing whatever she was. “No one was ever going to choose me as her donor.”

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Author Interview

What inspired you to write FORMULA FOR A PERFECT LIFE? 

I wanted to write Kayla’s story (and the whole series) for college-age kids trying to live a Christian life in a secular world and specifically a secular university. I have college-age kids—both strong Christians—both attend secular universities—and the challenge at their age to balance their faith and worldview in a place where sin is rampant is very real. I worry about young adults who don’t know Jesus and who struggle with sin and forgiveness and self-worth.

What challenged you most about writing this story? 

The biggest struggle when writing Formula for a Perfect Life was balancing the reality of an out of wedlock pregnancy with the happy-ever-after element of a romance. I didn’t want to dumb-down the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy by glossing over the very real consequences. I wanted Kayla to have her happy-ever-after (the very essence of a romance), but she needed to realistically deal with the fears, doubts, and unknowns of an unmarried, pregnant young adult.

Which character do you most relate to and why?

At my age, I most relate to Kayla’s mother. Our kids will make us proud and humble us as they navigate through life’s challenges. I always tell people if I want to take credit for their greatest accomplishments, I must also take credit for their biggest mistakes. The truth is, as parents, we do the best we can, pray daily, and send them off into the world to find their path. My role is to be there for them and to help them seek God if and when they struggle.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it? 

I hope readers realize that sometimes our biggest mistakes can be our biggest blessings. I want readers to know that God is with us in the best of times and the worst of times. It’s not our mistakes or accomplishments that define us but how we handle ourselves during life’s peaks and valleys.

If you could sum the book up in one sentence, what would you say? 

Formula for a Perfect Life is a story of two young adults’ journey through an unplanned pregnancy where falling in love might be the biggest surprise of all.

What is something about you that is unique - maybe about how/where you write... or favorite snack foods or hobby?

I have a shelf on my exercise bike and do my best writing while exercising. When the endorphins are flowing, the words and ideas flow in a way they usually don’t while I’m sitting at a desk—and time flies when I’m not staring at the clock waiting for my workout to end.

Formula for a Perfect Life
By Christy Hayes
Christian New Adult Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 323 Pages
March 30th 2020

Two practical strangers. One fateful night. Two pink lines.

College senior and obsessive romantic Kayla Cummings' dreams of a storybook life are spun off course by an unplanned pregnancy after a one-night stand with her secret crush. Devastated, Kayla turns to her roommates and best friends for advice. No matter what she decides, no matter how deeply embarrassed, she has to tell the father.

Ben Strickland’s future is written in stone—as long as he gets a decent score on the Law School Admission Test. Feeling pressure from all sides, Ben struggles to juggle his upcoming finals, another shot at the LSAT, and his needy girlfriend Darcy. When the girl he spent a memorable night with weeks ago shows up at his doorstep pregnant, his already chaotic life spins out of control.

With the clock ticking, decisions to make, and a boatload of people to disappoint, Ben and Kayla embark on a journey neither anticipated—a journey where falling in love might be the biggest surprise of all. But when old hurts and buried secrets pose a greater threat to their future than impending parenthood, will Ben and Kayla go their separate ways or forge a new path to happy ever after?

It's the Grand Finale for ONE LITTLE LIE by Colleen Coble! #OLLPrism

It's the Grand Finale for ONE LITTLE LIE by Colleen Coble! #OLLPrism


On Tour with Prism Book Tours

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops
you'll find snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below:

Launch - Author Interview

What was the inspiration for ONE LITTLE LIE and for this new Pelican Harbor series?

I was at a restaurant in Gulf Shores, AL with friends. Their 16-year-old son mentioned he’d been working on a shrimp boat. He said, “You wouldn’t believe the stuff we bring up in the nets. Washing machines, other appliances, you name it.” I immediately had the image of a shrimp net hauling up a body clad in a wedding dress, and that was the nugget that started One Little Lie.


"This was truly a suspenseful "page-turner" with drama, lots of action, and situations which keeps the reader guessing who the "good guys" and the "bad guys" really are! . . . The characters are portrayed so well, one will tend to forget this is fiction."

Heidi Reads... - Excerpt

She turned toward the coffee shop and bumped into a man who reached out to steady her. “Sorry, I wasn’t watching where I was going.”

His eyes crinkled at the corners as if smiling was his usual expression, though his lips were flat now. He towered over her five feet two inches, and she guessed him to be six foot. His shaved head made his large brown eyes even more expressive and compelling, and he exuded controlled energy and power under his very attractive surface. His muscular arms and face were tanned as if he’d spent a lot of time in the sun. Her immediate attraction to him made her take a step back. She steered clear of relationships. Losing someone you cared about hurt too much.

Those dark eyes smiled down at her. “You’re Jane Hardy.”


"One Little Lie is the first book in the Pelican Harbor series, and after reading this one I certainly cannot wait to read the next book. . . . I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book and I thought that they were interesting, relatable, and people I could see in real-life situations. Colleen Coble is one of my go-to authors . . . and she certainly came through again with this great book."


"I have read a few of the author's books and enjoyed them. . . . The plot was predictable but, had a few surprises. . . . I did enjoy the book . . ."


"This was one of those stories that compelled me to keep turning the pages. There were so many questions to be answered and lots of secrets to be uncovered. . . . The chemistry between Jane and Reid was there and I enjoyed the suspense . . ."


Kimber Li - Excerpt

Jane parked her SUV in the driveway behind the flashing lights of a patrol vehicle and got out, the rising sun glaring into her gritty eyes. The call to investigate another body had sent her straight to her vehicle without a shower. Two bodies in twenty-four hours . . .

Was she really equipped for this job?

She let Parker out of the back before she walked toward the shotgun house with its neat spring flower beds lining either side of the red front door. She spotted a woman standing off to one side with her arms clutched around her. It was probably the neighbor who’d made the 911 call, and Jane would talk to her next.

A figure moved in the brush at the side of the house, and she caught the shine of something metallic. A gun? She pointed at the bush. “Take down, Parker!”


"Wow, there was a lot going on in this book! I loved the first chapter of the book which really set the stage for the rest of the story. It gave me an instant connection to emotion and really peaked my interest. . . . The intensity ramps up slowly but I could feel it happening. It's exactly what you want to feel when reading this type of book."

I'm Into Books - Spotlight


“Did you need something from me?”

He spread out his hands. “Look, I could shout up to you from the street, but I’d like to come up and talk to you.”

The lights were on next door. What could it hurt to have a private conversation? She wasn’t afraid of him. She gestured to her left.

“There are exterior stairs off the alley. I’ll open the door for you.”

He nodded and moved that direction, and she went inside to open the door in the kitchen. The iron stairs clanged as he ascended them, and for some reason, the sound made her pulse jump. Maybe this was a bad idea.


"Over the years, I’ve read many of Colleen Coble’s books and have enjoyed them immensely. She never ceases to amaze me with her ability to come up with new stories. One Little Lie is another example of her superb writing. . . . One Little Lie is filled with well-written characters, and you’ll love reading their stories. . . . The book’s pacing is perfect for a suspense novel. You’ll be frantically reading to find out how all of the clues fit together."

Uplifting Reads - Review

"This one starts out with a bang, gripping you from the first page . . . I did enjoy the story. I kept my attention during a time of a lot of uncertainty in the world and was a welcome distraction."



"Right off, from the prologue, the novel grabbed me . . . While others could feel bogged down by all that is going on in it, Coble has found a way to make it all work and carefully weave it together. The cases, the people – every little bit. It’s a wild roller coaster of a [read]."


"This was my first ever read from Colleen Coble and just wow! I was blown away by the writing, the flow and the themes within the story. I loved the way everything unfolded as the story progressed and that ending was superb!"


"Overall, I thought the premise of the novel is fantastic and unlike [any] other book I have read. I found the characters fascinating and well developed and I started to care what happens to the them, basically I just want them to have the happiness they so richly deserve. A great book to read in one day or over a weekend."

Wishful Endings - Spotlight


"I have read nearly all of Ms. Coble’s books. She is a wonderful storyteller and infuses her tales with mystery, suspense, romance, and faith. . . . In the end, most things wrapped up nicely."

Hallie Reads - Excerpt

Will’s smile could light up a football stadium. The boy wore a Saints cap backward, and he slung two camera bags onto his shoulders as he exited Reid’s SUV outside the police station. A tripod stuck up out his backpack.

A pelican fluttered down the strut on the grass by the road, and Will pointed it out. “Look at that!”

“No fish here in town.” Reid locked his vehicle. “You don’t look eager or anything. This will be hard work.”

Will bounced a little on his flip-flops.

“It’s going to be great, Dad. I know I can do it. Thanks for giving me a chance.”


"Overall, this has everything that I have come to love from Colleen Coble--- great suspense, unexpected twists, themes of faith and yes, romance too. It was a great start to this new series and I cannot wait to see what happens next. Current fans of Colleen Coble will certainly want to add it to their collection, and new readers are sure to fall in love too!"


"This is such a strong book to begin a new series of hers. The characters were absolutely delightful and relatable. Moreover, she tackles a hot topic now that seems to make its way into popular culture on a regular basis–cults. I appreciate the fact that she, a solid Christian author, tackles such a timely subject, while still including twists, turns, and the gospel message. . . . Fair warning, however. Once you start the book, I promise you WILL NOT want to put it down!"

Splashes of Joy - Spotlight


"One Little Lie is so intriguing and has many twists and turns in this wonderful story that I just couldn't put the book down. . . . Colleen Coble sure knows how to grab your attention and keep it there. Her writng style is fantastic! . . . I wasn't at all disappointed with this novel. It had a little bit of everything in it and just right amount too. Nicely done."

One Little Lie
(Pelican Harbor #1)
By Colleen Coble
Christian Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Hardcover, Paperback, Audiobook & ebook, 352 Pages
March 3rd 2020 by Thomas Nelson

It started with one little lie. But Jane Hardy will do everything in her power to uncover the truth in this gripping new romantic suspense.

Jane Hardy is appointed interim sheriff in Pelican Harbor, Alabama, after her father retires, but there's no time for an adjustment period. When her father is arrested for theft and then implicated in a recent murder, Jane quickly realizes she's facing someone out to destroy the only family she has.

After escaping with her father from a cult fifteen years ago, Jane has searched relentlessly for her mother—who refused to leave—ever since. Could someone from that horrible past have found them?

Reid Bechtol is well-known for his documentaries, and his latest project involves covering Jane's career. Jane has little interest in the attention, but the committee who appointed her loves the idea of the publicity.

Jane finds herself depending on Reid's calm manner as he follows her around filming, and they begin working together to clear her father. But Reid has his own secrets from the past, and the gulf between them may be impossible to cross—especially once her father’s lie catches up with him.

Washing machines, other appliances, you name it.” I immediately had the image of a shrimp net hauling up a body clad in a wedding dress, and that was the nugget that started One Little Lie.

Would you tell us a little more about the characters?

I was intrigued by the idea of a main character who fled from a cult. I’m going to be curious to see if any of my long-time readers make the connection to another book I’ve written. That’s all the hint I’m giving though. 🙂 And I adore Jane. She’s small and feisty, and I love how much she’s overcome in her life.

What are you hoping readers will take with them once they’ve finished reading ONE LITTLE LIE?

The theme of the story is how easily any of us could start down a wrong road with one “little” lie. The lie told in this book was rationalized by being good and necessary for Jane’s future, but was it?

If you could sum the book up in one sentence, what would you say?

One little lie leads to a tangled web of murder and heartbreak.

Share something about you that is unique - maybe about how/where you write... or favorite snack foods?

If I have coffee and chocolate in hand, I’m happy! I always start with location, strangely enough. I never want one of my books to be able to be set somewhere other than where I’ve placed it. My books have a strong sense of place, and the locale helps determine the plot.

It's the Grand Finale for THE PRINCE AND THE WEDDING PLANNER by Jennifer Faye! #PrincPrism

It's the Grand Finale for THE PRINCE AND THE WEDDING PLANNER by Jennifer Faye! #PrincPrism


On Tour with Prism Book Tours

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops
you'll find snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below:

Launch - Note from the Author

Thanks so much for joining me for the launch of The Bartolini Legacy trilogy. This family saga filled with secrets, surprises and lots of romance begins with THE PRINCE AND THE WEDDING PLANNER. . . . I hope you’ll join Bianca and Prince Leo in this royal romance as they wrestle with the past and come to terms with the present in order to have a happily ever after future.

Happy reading,
— Jennifer


"In her familiar style, Jennifer Faye, once again, creates a wonderful "feel good" novel which is sure to leave the reader uplifted and entertained. . . . Within this tale, is a whirlwind of fun, often unexpected events, which will keep the reader eagerly anxious for the next page. The characters are delightfully endearing. and portrayed well. The background scenes and events are well described, allowing the reader the feel he/she is there, experiencing it."


“I… I’ll be there.” Bianca turned her back to her brother, not wanting him to see the unshed tears shimmering in her eyes. She could be strong like him. She could get through this agonizing day without crumbling into a million pieces.

She needed to think about anything but the hollow spot in her heart. She lifted her head and her gaze came to land on the old photos on the wall. It was a collage of her grandparents, her parents’ wedding and herself and her two siblings. They’d all looked so happy—

“Bianca, they loved you.” And then her brother exited the room, closing the door softly.


"I've become a fan of Jennifer Faye's simplistic warm hearted stories. The Prince And The Wedding Planner did not disappoint. This story is delightfully entertaining and charming. The premise is unique and fun, and I just love a good royal romcom. . . . Bianca and Prince Leo are quite adorable in close company, and I enjoyed reading their story. This was a fast read for me. In the end, it's the kind of story that will make you smile!"

Pause for Tales - Review

"This was a sweet romance that took you out of everyday life and into a life of royalty. Which certainly is no picnic at times but there is [definitely] some advantages. Leo and Bianca instantly hit it off and of course there is an immediate attraction. What follows is should they or shouldn't they follow their hearts desire and go against expectations or after his sister's wedding go their own separate ways."

Wishful Endings - Excerpt

. . . Truth be told, there was another woman that had caught his attention. Her hair was dark and her skin glowed a warm tan. He noticed that she spoke when addressed but for the most part she was quiet. And when she did speak, her voice was soft.

He caught himself staring at her more than once. Maybe it was because she didn’t make a point of walking up to him and introducing herself like so many of the other people. In fact, she acted as though she didn’t even know he was royalty. Could that be possible?

Regardless, his interest in the beautiful woman increased. It’d been a while since he’d enjoyed a woman’s company. With his pending engagement and marriage—a necessity in order to ascend to the throne—he wasn’t in a position to start anything. But for the moment, he was still a free man.

Bookworm Lisa - Review

" It's cute and fun. It is a romance that many people like to fantasize about. The characters are interesting and their story keeps the book moving at a good pace. It is easy to read and engaging. This is a book that is an escape when you need a few minutes to relax and enjoy a book."


"Throughout the story, Faye wants you to remember to hold back judgment and to see how her characters choose to take steps to reassert their own independence in their lives. They each desire to find happiness and to catch it as long as they can whilst dealing with obligations none of them are truly ready or prepared to accept. Its a lovely story about the fortitude one needs to survive the ruts in the road life brings along whilst keeping hopeful about the future which is never quite written in stone as some would like to believe! . . . Faye writes realistic narratives for today's Romance reader and that is exactly why I love continuing to follow her publishing journey."


"This is a great book about love. The love between a family, a couple, and even a kingdom. . . . I can not wait to see how the rest of this series plays out."


"This was a sweet, fun, and whirlwind read. I didn’t even know it was over until I got to the last page. The author’s vivid writing brought the scenery to life. Bianca and Leo were such a perfect couple, and it was easy to see where the novel was going.

The romance element was absolute perfection . . . The author does a terrific job of keeping the pace going for the romance. This short, but addictive little read is the perfect beach day or even rainy day read."


“I’m confused,” he said. “Are you a guest of the bride or the groom?”

“Neither. I’m their wedding planner, Bianca Bartolini.”

He hadn’t expected that response. He must be slipping. He was usually very good at reading people. It probably had something to do with the turmoil back at the palace. By the time he turned in at day’s end, he usually had a headache that kept him up until late into the night.

He needed to do something to bring peace back to the palace. If he couldn’t do that for his family, how would he ever keep peace over the nation?


"I have read a few of Jennifer's books and have enjoyed this one. . . . Overall, it was a quick read and I can't wait to read the rest of the novels."

Harlie's Books - Review

"I loved Leo and Bianca as a couple. They are sweet together and compliment each other. . . . I can’t wait to read the other two books in the series. I will miss the Queen and how she deals with Bianca and Leo’s relationship but upward and onward. Again, Ms. Faye has written a beautiful book about two characters that you will like and want to keep in touch with."


“Bianca Bartolini, I’d like to introduce you to His Royal Highness, Crown Prince Leopold of Patazonia.”

Once again, Bianca curtsied. She willed her face to cool down, but it only succeeded in making her warmer. Goodness. What was he going to think of her? First, she was openly staring at him. And now her face must look like a roasted beet—all red and steamy. Not good. Not good at all.

“You’ve put on a splendid wedding,” the prince said. “I’ve quite enjoyed it.”

“Th…thank you, Your Highness.”

“The prince is searching for a wedding planner,” Benito said. “And I was telling him what a great job you did with our wedding.”


"This is the first book in a new series by Jennifer Faye and it promises to be quite a wonderful series based on this book. . . . I thought this is an engaging story with charming characters and the perfect way to spend a relaxing afternoon or week-end getting lost in a book."

Splashes of Joy - Review

"The author does a great job of writing this story, weaving together the many different issues going on, and giving readers a wonderful story that will stay with me for a while. Some couples I just can’t get off my mind, and this as one of them. If you enjoy romance, check this one out. It’s a pretty fast read, and will give you a few hours of enjoyment and entertainment."


"I love Jennifer Faye’s books and The Prince and the Wedding Planner is no different. . . . I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy a quick, heartwarming and sweet romance."


As though Bianca sensed his presence behind her, she turned. “Your Highness.” She dipped her chin. “Is there something I can do for you?”

Just then the orchestra started to play a new song. It’d been a while since he’d danced and from what he’d observed, Bianca hadn’t let up on her duties long enough to enjoy the evening. It was wrong for her to miss out on such a marvelous evening.

With the lanterns sending a warm cast over the patio area, he asked, “Would you care to dance?”

Hallie Reads - Review

"An unexpected romance develops in Jennifer Faye’s The Prince and the Wedding Planner, the first of her Bartolini Legacy trilogy, and it is so fun. . . . I always enjoy a romance from Faye. Falling in love with a prince is a traditional childhood fantasy, and I enjoyed seeing the drama of that fantasy playing out on the pages of The Prince and the Wedding Planner."


"A wonderful romantic read, The Prince and the Wedding Planner is sheer reading delight from beginning to end. Jennifer Faye has written an emotional and dramatic tale sprinkled with humor, warmth and heart which readers will read in a single sitting as they find themselves completely and utterly bowled over by Leo and Bianca’s love story and unable to put the book down."

It's the Grand Finale for LOVE OVERBOARD by Rachelle Paige Campbell! #LovOverPrism

It's the Grand Finale for LOVE OVERBOARD by Rachelle Paige Campbell! #LovOverPrism

Launch - Author Interview

What was your motivation behind writing LOVE OVERBOARD?

I was watching one of my favorite movies, While You Were Sleeping, and I was struck by how one simple lie ended up so complicated. Even with the best of intentions, telling a lie or withholding the truth can really convolute an otherwise straight forward situation. The idea for my heroine, Caitlyn Moore, faking amnesia started as a “what if” scenario. She is well and truly over her ex, but he appears on her dream vacation—the first big goal she’s achieved—and throws her for a loop.

Hallie Reads - Excerpt

. . . If she wanted peace in their roommate situation, she resolved to bear his annoyance. The least she could do was appeal to the kind man she knew and strike up a civil conversation. “Did you say you were married?”

He choked on a gulp of water. Pressing a fist to his mouth, he coughed twice, took another sip, and nodded. “Yes, I’m married.”

“You said we broke up recently?” She rested her chin in a palm and cocked her head to the side. If he learned the truth, her questions wouldn’t earn her any reprieve. Her curiosity was too piqued, however, to resist.

Wishful Endings - Excerpt

A jazzy melody snaked from the secluded room to the hallway.

He paused with a hand on the doorknob. While the room wasn’t marked off-limits with any sort of signage, he had never encountered another crewmember or guest here without specific arrangements. He hadn’t bothered to lock the doors. Had someone come to find him? Every performer on deck demurred against the showcase role in the piano bar. Someone downplayed his or her skill. He stretched his neck from one shoulder to the other and eased the knot of tension.

Entering the room, he shut the door as silently as possible. From his position, he couldn’t spot the player hidden behind the baby grand piano. Whoever discovered the room had come across a beautiful instrument not meant for amateurs. The mystery pianist was the solution. He couldn’t afford to spook the person.

Mythical Books - Review

"It is a sweet, clean romance in which love and lust are subtly discovered, combined and served in perfect doses making me really enjoy the company of the characters. . . . Mrs. Campbell's Alaskan cruise is a great choice despite or because of the threats of the icebergs of the sea or our souls. Enjoy!"


"What a wonderful romance! The story gives us hope with the many situations we encounter in life. Overcoming obstacles and coming out a better person in the end is a fun journey to follow. . . . I highly recommend this uplifting romance story to everyone."


What did she think? Caitlyn held her breath. Every nerve ending in her body readied for command of either fight or flight. She inhaled through her nose and caught a whiff of recently cleaned carpet and woodsy cologne. From her peripheral vision, she surveyed the gleaming baby grand piano.

After discovering the elevator in the faux smokestack on the top deck, she boarded and rode up one floor. The elevator opened to another elegantly appointed Art Deco vestibule and an open doorway. Not spotting any off-limits signs, she entered the room and spotted the piano. Resistance to the beautiful instrument was futile. At her sides, she twitched her fingers against her thighs, remembering the delicate touch of the keys and the momentary balm for her nerves. His invitation was her nightmare.


"I enjoyed reading Love Overboard. . . . Seeing Alaska is something I always wanted to do, so reading about it is very enjoyable. Caitlyn never imagined she might fall in love on the cruise. . . . The book was fun to read."

Kimber Li - Excerpt

She nodded but her chest tightened. If her most remarked-upon personality trait was her inability to take a relatively minor risk, what did the quirk say about her character? She considered her caution a positive indication of her steadfastness, but perhaps no one else agreed. Maybe, instead, others viewed her as a woman incapable of change. She wanted to be capable of rising to a challenge and supporting her friends. How many friends did she have left? She hadn’t socialized with her colleagues in years and only met up with Steph. In an effort to minimize risk, she stopped seeking new people. Greg bumped into her. Their accidental circumstance forced an introduction. When she got home, she vowed to broaden her world.

Splashes of Joy - Review

"Love Overboard is a really nice short and sweet romance read. Caitlyn found herself in a shockingly embarrassing Alaskan cruise, one that was suppose to be with her sister, but turned out very differently. In the beginning, I grew to like these characters, and the plot kept me wanting to keep reading to know the ending."

Bookworm Lisa - Review

"This is a wonderful escape book to read. I loved "going" on an Alaskan Cruise with them. I hope to be able to see some of the places described in the book. I could picture them in my mind. I love it when a book helps me envision the characters and setting."

Uplifting Reads - Review

"Rachelle Paige Campbell gives readers a peek into cruise life as well as a handful of the wonders of Alaska. Love Overboard is also a story of stepping out of your comfort zone and realizing that some risks are worth taking. . . . it was a fast read. It was definitely a different kind of plot than I've seen in a while, which I appreciated!"

I'm Into Books - Excerpt

. . . The helicopter flew over a section of the glacier with deep rivulets cracking the surface. Craggy blue ice appeared like a rare gem, the breadth of the expanse and depth of color almost unimaginable. Missing the scene of majesty before her would have been a lifelong regret. What would have happened if her family had taken the trip together?

If Dad was here, I wouldn’t have boarded the helicopter.

She dropped her shoulders. No one expected her as the shy unassuming daughter to escape her comfort zone. Greg didn’t know her well enough to trap her in the same circumstance. She discovered a new opportunity from his encouragement and didn’t want to slink back to her old ways. Would she—alone—find the same courage at home?”


"This book was an absolute delight to read! I savored the story in its entirety, and I was thoroughly charmed and entertained by both main characters. The author told a simple but relatable story. . . . I felt just like I do when I watch a good Hallmark movie. Warm, fuzzy, and filled with hope for the days ahead. Thank you to this author who took the time to tell a story full of love, hope, and joy!"


Several times over the next four hours, Greg held his breath. As a man who prided himself on his quick turn of phrase, he’d been struck speechless. What compliment could he offer to compete with the wonder of their adventure?

They boarded the helicopter, donned headsets, and were airborne. The chopper soared over the glacier. Greg tilted his chin and peered out the window at the crevasses and streams rippled the surface like the bottom of the ocean from pounding tides.

Over the headsets, a guide directed them to view the nearby wildlife. He explained the unique blue coloring resulted from wavelengths of light being scattered and the hue saturating the farther it traveled.


"I really enjoyed this short and sweet cruise ship romance. The characters were so relatable, especially Caitlyn. . . . it was one giant ocean-going adventure after the other making it a fun read. I loved the chemistry between the main characters and before long, I was cheering for love to prevail. I think you will too as you escape into this terrific heartwarming book."


Greg poured a mug of coffee and extended the cup in offering.

She waved him off. “No, thanks.”

He frowned. “You’re not waiting for coffee? You just like to stand in lines?” The corners of his mouth lifted.

“No.” She caught her bottom lip with her teeth. His near-smile was contagious. She enjoyed their conversations and teasing repartee. She’d never before engaged in playful banter with a man. If she was smart, she wouldn’t start now. “I adore coffee. But…” She dragged the word for emphasis. “I don’t drink black and that mug”—she pointed toward the filled-to-the-brim ceramic in his hands—“has no room for my mix-ins.”

Remembrancy - Review

"Rachelle Paige Campbell gives readers a peek into cruise life as well as a handful of the wonders of Alaska. Love Overboard is also a story of stepping out of your comfort zone and realizing that some risks are worth taking."


“Whoa.” His mouth fell open. “You’d miss a once-in-a-lifetime experience?”

She lowered her gaze from his incredulous eyebrows to the empty mug she cradled. Only a drop of coffee remained, she needed more liquid fortification. Yes, she would relinquish an adventure as a solo traveler. Growing up after tragedy, she operated on constant high alert against any conversation veering toward emotions she’d rather not endure, like pity. With Greg, she couldn’t avoid tough talk. Strangely enough, she didn’t mind as much as usual. “I paid for two spots. I’m not as comfortable being on my own as you might think given my current circumstance.”


"I was cringing, laughing, and deeply sympathizing with this poor girl, as she awkwardly stumbled her way through a ton of personal growth, while trying to make the best of her life-long dream of seeing Alaska. . . . All in all, this was a fun, easy read that entertained. Campbell does a good job of portraying accurate feelings and character development that played on my emotions and allowed me a contented escape."


She caught his gaze and tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.

He flashed a thumbs-up and grinned.

Smiling, she looked away and started the next tune.

Without her, he would have floundered on his last itinerary. She faced her fears and saved his reputation on the cruise. Seated at the piano, she played like a natural performer, leaving no hint to her underlying nerves. Unless she disclosed her anxiety, he—and the audience—had no clue about her stage fright. If she could challenge herself, then he should too. He swallowed hard. Fighting against familial expectations was easier said than done.


"It was fun to feel like I was on a cruise while reading. . . . Love Overboard is such a cute romance. If you love oceans, traveling, and Clean Contemporary Romance then this book is for you!"
