SYNOPSIS

In this modern retelling of “Little Red Riding Hood,” the wolf and the woodsman are cousins, and Ginger is the little girl who claims both of their hearts.

Cain.
Woodman.
Ginger.

When three children grow up together in the rolling hills of Kentucky horse country,

One becomes a predator
One becomes a protector
And one becomes prey.

Ginger McHuid has been in love with the “Dub Twins” – Cain Wolfram and Josiah Woodman – for as long as she can remember. And for as long as the cousins can remember, they’ve each loved Ginger in their own all-consuming ways.

One will win her
One will be cast away
While one follows her heart.

It’s so difficult to write a review for a book you loved when you know all the GOOD parts are also spoilers.  When the most memorable moments could also spill the beans of the pivotal points in the story.  That’s where I’m at right now.

Ginger's Heart 5

How can I tell you how much I L❤VED this story without giving too much away? Katy Regnery’s modern take on this age old fairy tale was stunningly breathtaking.  So much so, she managed to make me cry with more happiness than sadness.  In this story of Ginger choosing between two amazing men, we get a new tale of TRUE love, EVERLASTING love and of EXCRUCIATING heartbreak.

So much is woven within Katy’s magnificent words that I was captivated from start to finish.  I couldn’t function as I placed my life on hold until I could get to the end. I was so captivated by the characters and the emotions this story evoked.

Ginger is the town “princess”. Treated as such by her family and some of the people in their Kentucky town. From a young age, she had a strong bond with the “Dub Twins” .  Josiah Woodman and Cain Wolfram are her BESTEST friends.  They are her protectors and closest confidants.  They were so close, I could liken them to the “Three Muskateers”.

Ginger's Heart 3

As they grew older, their friendships started to shift.  Josiah and Cain were always close due to their familial bond. Though they were cousins, they grew up and loved each other as brothers.  Add Ginger to the picture and you end up with a love triangle that spans nearly two decades.  Ginger loves both but her heart only belongs two one.

What melted my heart was that both boys loved Ginger and loved each other so much they were willing to step aside to let the other be the one to make Ginger happy.  Either way Ginger had a winner…but the spark of passion only happened with one.

Because of her confusion and fear of hurting one for the other, pain is evident and heartache is unavoidable.

Ginger's Heart 2

In my opinion, Ginger’s Heart was an amazing love story that would make even the toughest of readers crack. With a catchy start, an emotional middle and perfect ending…this book had everything.

 synopsis (2)

Christopher Winslow, the youngest of the four Winslow brothers, was born with a silver spoon in his privileged mouth, which has made it difficult for him to establish his credibility in the fast-approaching congressional race. Working against the clock to assure Pennsylvania voters that he is forthright, trustworthy and able has been an exhausting challenge, but Christopher’s chances at beating the incumbant look good.

Julianne Crow, a plus-size model struggling to make ends meet, jumps at the chance to make a little extra cash on the side. What does she have to do? Slip something into Christopher Winslow’s drink and take some very naughty pictures with him.

But Christopher is nothing like Julianne expected, and when her actions sabotage his hard-earned campaign only a month before the election, her guilt is overwhelming. She offers Christopher her help in an effort to repair the damage she’s caused, but can anything change the fact that he sees her as an opportunist and a mercenary? When she starts campaigning for Christopher, he may find out there’s more to her than meets the eye.

Return to the world created in the English Brothers books with this fresh foursome of scorching hot Winslow Brothers!

*****

*All books in The Blueberry Lane Series can be enjoyed as standalone novels.*

excerpt (2)

He had no right.

He had no business.

But it didn’t matter, because he couldn’t help himself. He leaned forward and claimed her mouth hungrily with his.

Her lips moved beneath his immediately, her hands flattening on his chest as he reached around her waist and pulled her up against his body. Her lips tasted like coffee with a hint of sweetness, and he wanted more—more of her, more of the sweetness. Sweeping his tongue over her lips, she opened for him, and he tilted his head, slanting his lips to cover hers more perfectly. Their tongues tangled—velvet heat, timid at first and then more sure, her teeth razing his flesh as he plunged hungrily into her mouth, swallowing her whimper and adjusting her against his body so that his hardness lined up with the valley of her sex. He groaned as she nipped his bottom lip, leaning her head to the side as he slipped his tongue back into her mouth. Moaning softly, she arched into him, and he slid his hands up her back, bracketing the sides of her breasts through the flimsy material of her blouse and feeling the frantic, ragged pull of her breath beneath his fingers as he kissed her.

And kissed her.

And kissed her.

Another whimper sounded from the back of her throat, and suddenly he realized that the hands she’d flattened against his chest were pushing him away. With a grunt of frustration, he released her, stepping back. Reaching up, he touched his lips with the back of his hand, panting as his knuckles dragged over the sensitized skin. He
scraped in a shaky breath, staring at her, forcing himself not to lunge for her and draw her back into his arms.

Her chest heaved up and down from the force of her breathing, her blouse was disheveled, and the skin around her lips looked pink, though her lipstick was still perfectly in place. Her eyes were wide. And angry.

“You can’t do that!” she said in a breathless whisper. “You can’t just—”

“I know,” he mumbled, dropping his hand from his lips and raking it through his hair. What the hell had he just done? What was he thinking?

“You can’t accuse me of . . . of falling for you two days ago and then … then k-kiss me in p-private like . . . like the world is ending today. It’s not . . . it’s not fair, Chris.”

“I’m sorry. I just . . .”

He turned his back to her, confusion making him wince. He didn’t trust her. He didn’t want anything to do with her.

Why couldn’t he help himself around her?

She raised her voice, speaking angrily to his back. “You said this was a job. An . . . an act. That didn’t feel like an act.”

“It wasn’t.”

“You’re confusing me. You don’t want me, then you—”

He palmed the back of his neck and turned to face her, his own voice low and lethal in his ears. “I don’t want you?”

“No!”

“Are you insane?” he barked.

“Are you?”

“Jules,” he gasped, staring at her in disbelief because how could she not know this? Despite what he’d said on Monday, didn’t she know? Couldn’t she see? And then suddenly he was speaking, his words coming out in a rush, a relief, a completely inappropriate stream of consciousness that he’d never, ever meant to share with her. “I can’t think about anything but you. I dream about you. I have imaginary conversations with you. I go to YouTube and replay that press conference kiss over and over again to torture myself because I can’t get enough of seeing you in my arms, melting into me. I don’t want you?” He took a step toward her, stalking her, taking her arm so she couldn’t pull away from him, and leaning into her personal space until they were almost nose to nose. “I’ve never wanted anyone as much as I want you!”
