Keeping the Score

Football is everything, but love is the only game that matters.

Leo, Quinn and Nate . . . They’ve been best friends forever, but life is about to take them in different directions. Decisions about love and friendship could change their paths forever.

Read the three-book series that will take you from the highs of first love to the painful lows of heartbreak and loss, all set amidst the pageantry and passion of football.

Nate: He’s been in love with Quinn since junior high. She’s always been his fierce protector, the one person who looks beyond his physical challenges to see who he really is. But Nate knows the hard truth. Leo holds Quinn’s heart. He’s the one she loves. Still . . . Nate won’t give up, not even when all seems lost.

Quinn: She’s tired of waiting for Leo to realize that he loves her. But even when he finally admits his feelings for her, Quinn’s loyalty to Nate and doubts about Leo could destroy their friendship.

Leo: He’s the football star, the guy all the girls yearn to have. But the one girl he secretly needs–Quinn–is the one he’s afraid to want. He knows she’s too good for him, but he can’t seem to resist loving her anyway . . . no matter what the cost to all of them.

Amid the joys and heartache of first love, crushing loss and unthinkable decisions, Leo, Quinn and Nate struggle to find their way forward without losing each other.

Your Guide to the Pennywise Costume

One of the hottest costumes of 2017 is going to be the Pennywise costume. Whether you choose to be the actual Stephen King character or some other form of a scary clown, this guide will help you make the most out of your Halloween costume.

Pennywise. Stephen King’s iconic killer clown has been the stuff of nightmares for years. I remember loving the book when I first read it all those years ago. And then of course was the TV miniseries with Tim Curry playing Pennywise that scared the crap out of people all over.

Now, my favorite story from the original was in about 8th or 9th grade, I went to a lock-in at my friends’ church. Somehow, we were allowed to watch IT. I love horror movies, and while it gave me some chills, I wasn’t absolutely terrified, unlike my friends.

The next morning, my friend’s mom is dropping me off at home. There, stuck in a tree in the front yard, was a lone red balloon. I didn’t live in an area where someone could have easily left it there as a joke. It was completely random.

My friend bursts into tears and begs me to not get out of the car. I was also crying, but more from tears of laughter. I think I had to call her every few hours to reassure her that I was okay. And obviously, 27 years later, I’m still here.

And so is Pennywise. The reboot just came out in Fall 2017 and fans are heading out in droves to check it out. This movie focuses more on the childhood part of the story, with a sequel in the works to address the adult resurgence of the killer clown.

Add to this the scary clown sightings earlier in 2016, and Pennywise makes for the perfect scary Halloween costume. Here are some ideas to help you get started. You can find these items on Amazon.

Pennywise Costume

So what makes for a good Pennywise costume? The 2017 Pennywise is based on a more old-fashioned look from about the 1800s or early 1900s. You want to start with a basic jumpsuit in yellow, or maybe a white or off-white. It needs at least three large pompoms in a line down the front of the jumpsuit. Some costumes also have a colorful vest and even a large ruffled collar. Round it off with white gloves and big boots.

His face is white with a large red-ripped nose, pencil-thin eyebrows and dark-lined eyes. Most importantly are the razor-sharp teeth hidden behind bright red lips. And of course you need the trademark wild red hair.

Hot on Ice: A Hockey Romance Anthology

What’s not to love about a hot and steamy collection? This one, in particular, features 18 romances from some of our favorite authors. What intrigued me so much about it is that they are all sports romances, following the members of a hockey team during one hot summer. I love the ones that feature sports teams, because there is just something about a player who is a player in a good way.

I had to snag my own copy, because it’s on sale for just 99 cents for a limited time. Even better, 20% of the proceeds benefit the charity Homes for Our Troops, which provides modified homes for injured veterans. I can definitely support a cause like that one! So snag your own copy to get a bunch of great reads for a low price and help some in need.

Hot on Ice

Little did they know that winning the Cup would just be the start of the hottest summer of their lives. . .

The New Orleans Cajun Rage professional hockey team just won The Cup. No one thought they’d do it: they were a team of shoulda beens, never coulda beens and a star or two. They’d only been in the Crescent City for three years before this year’s Cinderella run that had them skating off the ice with the championship.
Over the following summer, each player gets to keep the Cup for a day. Nobody knows why, but whoever has the Cup falls in love.

Christopher, Avery Flynn, Kim Golden, Lena Hart, Desiree Holt, Robin Kaye, Katie Kenyhercz, Heather Long, Kate Meader, Susan Scott Shelley, and Misty D. Waters bring you 18 romances with smoking hot heroes—both on and off the ice.
