Release Date: November 24 

“When your whole world is shaken from all the risks we have taken, dance with me. Dance with me into the colors of dusk.” ~ Ben Harper 

I’ve served my country, a man, and a cause. I’ve given my whole being while at the same time finding its true meaning. There was no way for me to know that the day I met the men who were to become my best friends they would introduce me to the love of my life. 

Fiery, red hair and hypnotizing, emerald eyes caught my attention. 
Creamy soft skin, a stark contrast to mine, seduced my body. 
Strength, devotion, and determination stole my heart.

I am Reid Murray and I’ll kill without regret to once again dance in the dusk with my wife. This war has only begun. I won’t rest until it’s done.

We will not retreat.

Darkness be damned. It is time for triumph.

Blurb:
My entire existence was torn apart in a single night...

Five years ago my whole world was consumed by the girl who held my heart, until it all changed.

I walked away to save her from having to deal with me and my fractured heart.

I've been drowning under the weight of my guilt, pushing away the people I love most... to protect them.

From all that's left of me and the pain that follows me like a tornado.

I swore I'd never come back home to Arbor Creek. But here I am.

They say the truth will set you free, but when it's revealed, I'm forced to face the demons keeping me shackled.

I don't deserve her or her forgiveness, but I'd give up my life if it meant keeping her safe.

But this time around, she just may be the one saving me.

*** RELEASE DAY *** THE ANITI-BOYFRIEND by Penelope Ward




Title: The Anti-Boyfriend
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2020



Blurb

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

At first, my neighbor Deacon frustrated me.

Sure, he was great-looking and friendly.

But our walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me awake while he “entertained” them.

As a single mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it.

So, finally it was my turn.

When my daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my door.

Miraculously, at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she eventually fell asleep in his arms.

Deacon was rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr. Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer.

After that night, we became friends.

He’d go for coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff.

But over time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer.

Until one night we crossed the line.

Our friendship turned into a complicated mess.

I’d gone and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids.

I knew Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into any plan he’d ever imagined for himself.

He was wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.”

Then why did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him?

Excerpt

Copyright © 2020
By Penelope Ward

Today, just as I got back to my door, Deacon was exiting his apartment.
“Oh, hey, Carys-Like-Paris. How goes it?” He flashed a wide smile.
When people ask me my name, for some stupid reason, I sometimes answer, “Carys, like Paris,” particularly when I’m nervous. That was the case the first time I met Deacon.
A whiff of his amazing smell put my body on alert. He looked handsome as always. Today he wore a camel-colored suede coat with a shearling collar. His blue eyes, which stood out against his tanned skin, glimmered under the fluorescent lights overhead, which also brought out the copper tint to his otherwise medium-brown hair. He was at least six-foot-two—a beanstalk to my five-foot-four self.
This was my opportunity to bring up last night. But now that he was right here, towering over me, his musky smell saturating the air, I seemed to have lost the words. Still, I was determined to speak up now or never.
My heartbeat accelerated. Here goes. Still out of breath from my sprint up the stairs, I said, “Well, honestly, in answer to your question… I’d love to say I’m doing great, but I had a hard time getting to sleep last night. So, I’ve been better.”
He frowned. “I’m sorry to hear that.”
“Actually, it’s sort of your fault.”
Deacon’s forehead crinkled. “My fault?”
“Yeah. I don’t know if you realize this, but your bed is right up against mine, on the opposite side of the wall. Your…interactions…last night woke me up, and I had a hard time getting back to sleep.”
Boom.
There.
Said it.
Deacon closed his eyes momentarily. “Shit. I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were right behind me.”
“Yeah. It’s basically like I’m…right there.”
“Well, that was rude of me. I should’ve invited you to join.”
What? It felt like all my blood rushed to my head.
He held out his palms. “I’m kidding. Bad sense of humor comes out when I feel awkward, I guess.”
Slipping a piece of my hair behind my ear, I brushed off his comment. “I know you’re kidding.”
“Totally kidding.” He smiled. “But I’ll try to be more considerate now that I know you can hear everything. You should’ve said something.”
I tilted my head. “How exactly would that have worked? Barging in on two naked people? That’s why I’m saying something now.”
“Solid point. But I take it last night wasn’t the first time you overheard things?”
I looked down at my feet. “No, it wasn’t.”
“You could’ve banged on the wall or something.”
“I’m not one to rudely interrupt someone’s…personal happenings. I just wanted you to be aware of the situation. We don’t need to discuss it further.”
“Maybe we should come up with a code.”
“What do you mean?”
“Like, If I’m disturbing your peace, you play a song and crank it up to send me a message.” He snapped his fingers. “Something ironic like ‘The Sounds of Silence’ by Simon and Garfunkel.”
“Can’t exactly crank up a song when a baby is sleeping.”
His smile faded. “See? That goes to show you how clueless I am. Clueless and so sorry, Carys. Truly. I’ll try not to let it happen again.”
“It better not, fuckboy!” a voice shouted from behind one of the apartment doors.
Deacon and I turned around in unison. I noticed Mrs. Winsbanger’s door move across the hall. The old lady must have been listening in. She lived alone, and I often spotted her peeking out her door, spying on people.
Deacon grimaced. “Mrs. Winsbanger loves me.”
“Apparently I’m not the only one who overheard things last night,” I said.
His face turned red. His embarrassment was a bit surprising. I’d expected him to be more cocky.
“I’ll move my bed to the other side of the room. That should help.”
“Well, that would be nice, if it’s not too much trouble.”
“It’s not.”
Happy to have the conversation over with, I let out a long breath. “Okay, well, I’ll let you get going.”
He didn’t budge and seemed to be examining my face. “You okay?”
“Yeah. Why?”
“You seem frazzled.”
Well, yeah. I didn’t get good sleep, I’m trying to get things done in possibly the only hour of the day I have free, and we just had the most awkward conversation EVER.
“This is just me—my life. I have what could be barely more than an hour to eat my lunch and have some quiet time before my daughter wakes up from her nap.”
“Ah.” He scratched his chin. “How old is she now?”
“Six months.”
Deacon knew I was a single mom. He’d run into me one day and helped me bring groceries in while I tried to juggle Sunny and her stroller.
I was just about to head back inside my apartment when his voice stopped me.
“Do you need anything?”

**5 STAR REVIEW** THE TRUEST THING by Samantha Young





Nine years ago, Emery Saunders moved to Hartwell to start her life over as a bookstore owner. Her inability to trust people made it hard for her to find a place in the small community until Jessica Lawson moved to town and befriended the shy beauty.But there was one person in Hartwell who tried to befriend Emery long before Jessica arrived…

Jack Devlin has his secrets. One of them is that he fell hard for Emery the moment she appeared in Hartwell. Another is that his father blackmailed him into covering up a dark family tragedy. It forced Jack to sever his relationships to protect the people he cared about. Yet, staying away from Emery has not been easy throughout the years and he hasn’t always succeeded. When Jack’s mixed signals hurt Emery once again, she puts him out of her heart for good.


Until the Devlin family secret is finally revealed, freeing Jack from his father’s machinations. What Jack wants more than anything is to repair his relationships, starting with Emery.


However, Emery isn’t ready to forgive and Jack’s not ready to give up.
And when the town’s latest scandal ties Jack and Emery together, Jack is not above using their new reality to prove to Emery once and for all that their love is worthy of the legend of Hart’s Boardwalk.

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Samantha Young and her romance novels and I was super excited to get this latest book, to continue on the journey with these characters we have known from previous books.

Samantha Young writes books that you can emerge yourself with and get lost in, they take you to another world, sometimes the world you wish to escape to and sometimes they relate to aspects of your life or what you have gone through and to me that makes reading and reviewing her books all the more worthwhile.

What I loved the most about Jack and Emery’s story was the fact that you knew this was a long time coming, their love, took a while to get there but it was worth all the heartbreak and sacrifice on both parts to get there.

I must say going back to Bailey’s book, I loved Jack, I was rooting for him to get his own story, there was always something about him that intrigued me so I was super excited when Samantha wrote Jack’s story.

Jack and Emery are just lovely, their characters are people that you probably know, they are just so down to earth but so compelling that makes you want to just bundle them both up and hold on tight to them.

Emery, bookstore owner, (now who wouldn’t want that job?) is shy and one of those girls who will blush at the drop of a hat but she is so endearing to you, you just love her.

Jack, well just is one of those guys who you know bits of but you don’t know it all, he keeps you guessing on his life which is just brilliant.

What I loved the most about this book was the way in which Samantha opens these characters up so you get drawn into everything they are feeling, their wishes, their past and present and makes you understand why Jack is who he is and why he does some of the things he does, the way Emery becomes a different person and why her past played such a role in her life.

You just literally fall in love with these people as if they were real people in your everyday life.
This book is not a straightforward boy meets girl kind of book, in true Samantha form there are twists and turns and so much to take in but boy it is so worth it. This book will compel you to read on and on and late into the night to get to the end of a chapter.

You will not be disappointed. I can guarantee that

Teaser


If it had been anyone else, I’d have chickened out and walked away. But Jack Devlin gave me the courage to push through my insecurities. He always had. And even though it had led to the kind of hurt I’d been avoiding the last nine years, I slowed to a stop at his side.
He barely turned his head. Just flicked me a look. If he was surprised by my approach, he didn’t say anything.
The turmoil in those blue-gray eyes devastated me.
Jack looked back out at the water and I turned, my hand almost brushing his, to gaze out at the ocean too. I heard his breath shudder a little and fought the urge to throw my arms around him.
I couldn’t give him that. But I could give him this.
I stood with him, watching the sun lower beyond the horizon.
Time passed.
Until there was only a flare of orange and pink where the sea met the sky.
Gathering my courage, I reached for Jack’s hand and clasped it in mine.
He squeezed my hand.
Tight. So tight.
I waited for him to let go.
He took awhile.
But eventually his grip eased.
I brushed my thumb along the top of his hand.
And then I released him.
I knew I didn’t imagine his eyes on my back as I strolled down the beach toward my house.
I always knew when Jack was watching me.
I always had.
