November Royal Picks + Giveaway!

We're starting a new post each month that will highlight our favorite reads -- Royal Picks!

As you may have noticed, any reviews that are Royal Picks will be labeled as such, with our stamp of approval on the cover. Then, the last Thursday of each month, I'll do a round-up post with all of our picks (both the ones reviewed and the ones that we simple read and gave a high rating to). 

The best part? Each month I'll offer TWO lucky winners their choice of one of our Royal Picks! Details below!

[Pat's Review]: "Getting Lucky"

Getting Lucky by Stacy Finz
Publisher: Lyrical Shine (November 10, 2015)
Series: Nugget, 5
Genre: Contemporary Romance

In Nugget, California, a tiny town tucked into the Sierra Nevada mountains, luck is what you make it, and love is never far behind...

From his humble beginnings in Nugget, Lucky Rodriguez has become a champion on the rodeo circuit, truly living up to his name in every regard. But when he returns home, he gets something success can't buy: a daughter he never knew he had. And the girl's mother, an old friend he has hasn't thought about since, now touches his heart like no buckle bunny ever could.

Tawny Wade hasn't always had luck on her side. She fell for a boy she couldn't have, lost her parents too young, and now her daughter needs a transplant she can't provide. But if Lucky is a stem cell match, all that could change. The trouble is, Lucky's got a past in Nugget that makes him off-limits as anything more than a donor for her daughter. And yet, Tawny's never stopped loving the man who now holds her family's fate in his cowboy-callused hands..

[Kame's Review]: "Stranded"

Stranded by HelenKay Dimon
Publisher: Riptide Publishing (November 10, 2015)
Genre: M/M Romance

Cabe got out of the gun-for-hire business the hard way—by nearly dying. Except then his former boss calls in one last favor for one final job. The mission should be simple: get a message to a retired operative in Alaska. But it puts Cabe face-to-face with the one man he doesn’t want to see and can never forget. Not after all the secrets and lies. Not after Brax almost killed him.

Brax Hughes lived hard and retired young to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Well, that was the plan, but before he can hang up his sniper rifle, he has one last mission: win back Kyle Cabe. Brax wants another chance, wants to come clean, but after months of lying to Cabe, he knows he could face a bullet—or worse—when they meet again. And they will meet. Brax made sure of that.

With a storm moving in and someone lurking outside the cabin, time is running out. Brax needs to talk fast and keep his weapons ready. And his best weapon is the truth.
