Six months after the death of her mother, Twenty-one-year-old Maggie Taylor is just trying to get through each day when she's offered a coveted spot at a prestigious dance school in New York City. Knowing her father will not approve, she packs her car and sets out on a road trip that will leave her forever changed.

Twenty-one-year-old Sam Austin is tired of being stuck in a small town. Forced to deal with his father's alcoholism since his mother left eleven years ago, Sam has only ever found solace in music and frequent one-night-stands. When Sam is presented with the opportunity to move to Chicago, he leaps at the chance, and leaves town with only his backpack and guitar.

When Sam and Maggie arrive in the small Midwestern town of Hermann, Missouri, they are forced to share the only room available . What starts as a simple inconvenience soon turns into a weekend of passion. A passion that will burn until they are reunited years later by a terrible tragedy.

The Cat's Meow


The Cat’s Meow
SEALS, INC., Book 5
Tess Michaels, bookkeeper and human calculator, keeps business at The Cathouse clearly profitable - until the numbers begin to fade. When the profit margin drops, she realizes that there is no number more final than zero.

Matt Brooks, former Army Ranger and newest member of SEALS, Inc., agrees to investigate, immediately intrigued and aroused by Tess’ numerical ability. Her uncanny love of numbers strikes a chord with his own analytical mind and he soon learns that there is a whole lot more to the sexy number-cruncher than he thought.

Swept into a whirlwind romance, the couple works diligently to discover the cause of the profit loss. Yet when Tess becomes his prime suspect, Matt must do some quick calculations of his own to prove her innocence.

Ranger stood at the counter, his broad shoulders and muscled biceps on display. His low but rich, deep voice filled the air, traveling the distance to the table and teasing her nerve-endings. The young girl at the counter giggled and then shrugged as she snapped lids on two paper coffee cups. Tess chuckled under her breath. Flirt.

Ranger picked up the cups and then headed toward her, his trademark cocky smirk on his handsome face. Mesmerized by the picture of pure male sauntering her direction, Tess caught a flash of something on his arm, peeking from beneath the cuff of his t-shirt. Something black that she only saw once when he made a certain movement.

She watched closely as he placed the cups on the table and then sat opposite her, curious when she didn’t see the mark again.

“Do you have a tattoo?”

Since she was fairly confident in her observation, she expected a quick admission. Instead, he raised his eyebrows.

“Were you checking me out?”

“No, I just noticed something on your arm. Either you have a major bruise, or you have a tattoo.”

“You were checking me out.”

“Okay, fine. Yes, I was checking you out.” She leaned forward and squinted at his right biceps. “Do you have a tattoo or not?”

“Do you?”

Although his avoidance somewhat irritated her, she found it extremely arousing. Two could play his game.

She leaned back in her chair, crossed her legs, and raised an eyebrow. “Wouldn’t you like to know?”



“You show me yours, I’ll show you mine.”


WOW!!! What can I say about this book other than it is a must read! I was hooked from the beginning and could not put it down. It has it all with a little bit of mystery, romance, and suspense all mixed in to create a wonderful, fast paced read that will have you turning the page to see what happens next. The main characters are marvelous and really pull one into the story and along for the journey with them. Also, the secondary character are just as important and really help add that something extra to make it an even better read.
Tess is the bookkeeper at The Cathouse in which a robbery occurs. Matt, a former Army Ranger and newest member of SEALS Inc. team, agrees to go undercover and investigate the robbery. The chemistry between them is smoking hot. Even when Matt says some pretty unbelievable stupid things. It looks like Tess is his main suspect even when things are not adding up.
Matt has to decide what to do even when all evidence points to Tess. Amongst all of the ensuing chaos of trying to figure out who did it, the rest of the team and their wife’s really help add to the story and keep you laughing.
Mia Dymond has crafted a wonderful, action packed, fast paced read that will keep you guessing till the end. The chemistry between the characters, and not just the main ones, is amazing. It helps to really tie the story together and create a great plot. If you are look for a fun read with a little romance and mystery then this is absolutely the book for you. I cannot wait to see what Mia comes up with next for us to read.

 At the young age of nineteen, Shayne Andrews thought she had it all. She had the love of her life, her high school sweetheart, and a bright future ahead of her. That is, until one day he just disappeared, leaving a note as his only goodbye. With her heart shattered and broken, Shayne did the only thing she could. She left her small town on the shores of Lake Michigan to start her life over, needing to distance herself from the memories she and Luke had made. At that time, she vowed to herself that she would never return to her hometown again. Seven years later, Shayne realizes that fate is not on her side as she returns home for her aunt’s funeral, bringing back the one secret she swore to protect.
Luke Schavone has regretted every day that he had to leave Shayne behind. Though he didn’t have a choice, his heart still bore the scars from the impact.
After five years, Luke returned only to find that Shayne was gone. His best friend was the only lifeline he had to finding her, but Adam wasn’t talking.
When the one thing Luke has wanted everyday for the past seven years runs right into him one night, he becomes determined to make sure he doesn’t lose her again.

At first, Shayne is hesitant. She wouldn’t be able to survive losing him again, but the pull toward him is so fierce, she can’t deny herself the chance. With the decision to start over, Luke and Shayne must admit truths and come to terms with the events that forced them apart in the first place. When secrets are revealed and old threats come to pass, will Luke be able to shelter Shayne from the destruction, or will she become lost to him forever?

    "Baby, I never thought I would get to taste those sweet, sexy, seriously fuckable lips again."
   "Fuckable? I ask, "What happened to us starting over?"
    Luke brings his mouth to my ear. "I said I wanted us to start over, and I meant it. Doesn't mean I don't remember everything that happened between us, my beautiful girl. Especially involving those fuckable lips," he whispers, a glint of mischief in his eyes.
   "Oh, is all I can get my mouth to say.
   "What's the matter baby? Did I kiss you senseless?" Luke asks as he pulls me up into a standing position.
     "You so wish, big boy."

Intriguing Authors & Their Books Review:
WOW!! What can I say about this book other than you should definitely grab a copy of it as soon as possible. From the very beginning, I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. This is Kathy Coopmans debut book and what a way to begin one's career. She absolutely hit it out of the park.

    I want give away any spoilers, but I will tell you a little about the book and this blogger humble opinion. Shelter Me is about Shayne and Luke and their relationship from them being high school sweethearts, being separated for an extended period, and to them meeting as adults. It is an amazing story about losing someone you love who was everything to you and not expecting ever to find them again. The chemistry between the two is smoking hot.

   The way Kathy writes; it pulls you as a reader into the story and along for the journey that the characters are experiencing. It is an incredible story about heartache, loss, love, strength, and a little mystery thrown in to keep one guessing.

   It is an absolute one click buy!! I promise you won't be disappointed when you read it. I know I wasn’t. I loved it and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next for us to read.
