"Gah! You want this book! Need to know this story! All I can say is Yes!! Yes you need Quinn James in your life! Yes Heidi McLaughlin is continuing all the things I loved about her Beaumont Series into this Next Generation!!" -Amber, The Geekery Book Review
Music is his passion. It’s in his blood. Yet, Quinn James isn’t sure if stardom is right for him. His family wants him to join a band, and follow in his father’s footsteps but fear holds him back. He can’t explain it, and when he tries, no one understands what he’s afraid of or why he’s content playing coffee shop gigs where no one knows him.
Eleanora Boone wants to live her life, not the one her very southern parents planned for her, which is why she chose a college thousands of miles away. Now she’s faced with returning home or doing something that would defy her family. When an opportunity to visit Los Angeles falls in her lap, she uses it to become someone different. California is everything Eleanora thought it would be, and even more so when she meets Quinn, the shy, reserved and brooding musician who’s the complete opposite of the guys she’s used to back home. 
For the first time, Quinn’s smitten. The new, mysterious waitress has him wrapped around her finger, and he finds that he is finally able to open up and trust someone outside of his family circle. 
But living a different life comes with its risks, and for Eleanora, that risk is a secret that has the power to destroy both of them.
“You should do it, El. My brother lives there,” Sofia adds. Her brother, right. For the past two years, she’s told me about her brother. In fact, she tells anyone who will listen. He’s famous or is going to be, yet refuses to tell us his name, but talks about him an awful lot. He goes by Q, according to her. It’s some artist name or whatever. The thing is, when you’ve lived with someone for two years, you meet their family. Granted, this is the first time she’s met my parents, but my brother and sister have come to visit, and she’s had the dubious honor of meeting Roy. The only person in Sofia’s family that we’ve met is her mom, Alicia. Never the brother, which is a shame because anytime him and Sofia are together in pictures, he looks super-hot, and way out of my league.
Heidi is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in picturesque Vermont, with her husband and two daughters. Also renting space in their home is an over-hyper Beagle/Jack Russell, Buttercup and a Highland West/Mini Schnauzer, JiLL and her brother, Racicot.
When she's isn't writing one of the many stories planned for release, you'll find her sitting court-side during either daughter's basketball games.
Heidi's first novel, Forever My Girl, will be in theaters on October 27, 2017, starring Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe.

Her first problem is that Jeb Wakefield doesn’t want to sell his farm, and her second problem is Jeb’s grandson Dan, the finest looking man Holly’s ever seen. 

Excerpt: Chapter One
Last week

Several miles down the road, Jeb Wakefield took his biscuits out of the oven and brushed melted butter across the tops of the hot bread. The sweet scent made his stomach growl. What was keeping Dan? Dinner was ready, and he was sure to be hungry after working all day in the cold.

A sudden draft of bitter air announced Dan Wakefield’s arrival. He pulled his gloves off and stuffed them in the pocket of his heavy coat, which he hung on a peg just inside the door. He sat down on a battered, old bench in the mudroom and removed his boots before padding into the kitchen to greet his grandfather. “What’s for dinner?”
“Beef stew and biscuits.” He ran a hand across his short gray hair and straightened his broad shoulders.

This Week: We begin where we left off last week. Jeb speaks first.

Saturday Sample: Turnaround Farm


Welcome to Saturday Sample. Today I'm sharing an excerpt from my new release Turnaround Farm. Turnaround Farm is a Kindle Unlimited title available at https://wingsepress.com/turnaround-farm/


Blurb:
If up and coming realtor Holly Grant can buy Turnaround Farm for her client, her business will boom. Who says you have to have a man in your life to complete you? She’s fine as she is thank you very much. Her first problem is that Jeb Wakefield doesn’t want to sell his farm, and her second problem is Jeb’s grandson Dan, the finest looking man Holly’s ever seen. 

Last Week.
She’s still limping, and she’s off her feed.”

“Sure.”

Dinner was a silent affair because Jeb’s thoughts had turned to his grandson.
The Wakefield family had been one of the founding families in the town of Fairfield, prospering over the years through the raising and training of horses. A warm light briefly shone in his eyes. If he did say so, he had made quite a name for himself in the horse world.

His stomach knotted. If only Kyle...Well, Kyle was another matter altogether. As far as Jeb knew, his only son had done just one good thing during his entire life; he had married Millie Lane and produced Dan.

This Week: We continue where we left off last week.

All the Right Moves

Title: All The Right Moves
Author: Becca Taylor
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 13, 2018
Being called the worst boyfriend can do a number on a man’s ego. 
But I handled it the way any full-grown adult male would—by eating copious amounts of carbs and wallowing over whether I was good enough.
I admit, it wasn’t the best of moments, but it made me realize I needed answers to the question, what are women looking for inside and out of the bedroom?
After I researched the subject, I compiled my data into a solution.
Thirty days. 
Thirty right moves.
But I needed to test out my newfound theories, and my best friend, Tenley, was going to help. 
It was a foolproof plan. 
We would date and act like a real couple, all in the name of research. And when the thirty days were up, we would go back to being just friends. 
Piece of cake, right?
Only, I forgot to take into consideration the multiple outcomes. Specifically, the one where it left me wanting more and refusing to go back to what we were... ever again.

Becca Taylor dived headfirst into the world of writing in 2015. As a child, she explored writing songs. As a teen, she wrote poetry until she found a love of all things romance.
One night, a dream turned into an idea. An idea turned into a chapter. A chapter turned into a novel and a new adventure began.
