Cover Reveal: Garrett by Sawyer Bennett

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, SEPTEMBER 16, 2014 | PERMALINK

Romance, secrets and hockey come together in full force in Sawyer Bennett's upcoming novel Garrett, the second book in her Cold Fury Hockey series, which kicks off this October with Alex. And while Garrett doesn't come out until February, we have something rather delicious to tide you over — the cover! And let us tell you, it's a hot one. But don't let us spoil it for you, read on to see the reveal and to learn more about the book.

Let's start by seeing what this book is about:

Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type — confident, sexy, smart ... his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Outlander Recap: Episode 1.6 — "The Garrison Commander"

BY Regina Small, SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 | PERMALINK

Last week: Claire traveled with the Castle Leoch crew to collect rent — and discovered that Dougal's trying to raise money for a Jacobite army to unseat England's current king. Hurray, treason!

We left off last week with British soldier Lieutenant Jeremy Foster asking Claire if Dougal is holding her against her will. Returning from the smash cut to black, we pick up immediately with Claire's answer: No, she's not a prisoner. She's a guest of Clan MacKenzie.

Foster still feels his superior would want to speak to Claire, so he requests she come with him. Dougal insists on going as well and, as they travel, Claire VOs that there's something comforting about riding with her own people; after all, she did serve in the British army for six years. I don't totally understand her affection for THIS British army, given the fallout of the brutal crucifixion we saw last week. But okay.

Claire notes Dougal's discomfort — though they're still in Scotland AND on MacKenzie land, the town they're heading into has a strong British army presence, so Dougal's definitely in enemy territory.

Once they arrive, Foster takes Claire and Dougal directly to his commander, a foppish gentleman seated at a long dining table with other soldiers. He bolts out of his chair to introduce himself to Claire, proclaiming it's been too long since he's seen a "lovely English rose." Then he kisses her hand, and wastes no time calling Scotland "blasted turf."

Indestructible by Angela Graham

The Story: Newly single college grad Cassandra has fallen for the single dad next door, and book three (which contains no cliffhanger, I love it when that's made clear) concludes their story. Things to know about this series: the heroine is a sexual assault victim and apparently book three contains a ton of sex. Reviews claim secondary characters are a big part of this book, paving the way for more books in the series.

Outlander Recap: Episode 1.5 — "Rent"

BY Regina Small, SEPTEMBER 08, 2014 | PERMALINK

Previously: After a failed escape attempt, Claire tended to a dying man on the Gathering's hunt and earned herself a place on Dougal's traveling band of rent collectors. Jamie got knocked on the head with a sword and — YUP — took his shirt off.

Jamie Shirtless Watch 2014: Technically? 22 minutes in, but it's under less than ideal circumstances.

To the recap!

Turned toward the mountains, Claire — who's rocking an amazing fur-collared coat — recites aloud the first part of John Donne's "Present in Absence." That initial stanza is about how the only thing that can fix the pain of someone's absence is time, which has an obvious double meaning for Claire.

Claire's halfway through when she's joined by a slight, bespectacled fellow who joins in her recitation. They bond over a mutual love of Donne as Dougal's men engage in some mildly drunken roughhousing and lively swearing in Gaelic.

Turns out Claire's fellow Donne enthusiast is Ned Gowan, a lawyer who's come to help Dougal with the records and receipts. Ned's also the only one Dougal trusts with the collected rent, which he keeps in a leather pouch on his horse. Amid a coughing fit, Ned explains that, besides money, they also accept grain, cabbage, trussed fowl and goats — but NO live pigs, not this year. Man, landlords today really don't know how easy they have it.

Debut Author Spotlight: Claudia Connor

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, SEPTEMBER 08, 2014 | PERMALINK

We love debut authors here at RT and we love introducing them to our readers. Today, we're shining the Debut Author Spotlight on Claudia Connor, the author behind Worth the Fall, which our reviewer says is "a beautiful story" that "reminds readers that your life is never too complicated for love." Read on to learn more about Claudia and the book!

Name: Claudia Connor

Book: Worth the Fall

Genre: Contemporary romance

Current Home: Germantown, TN

Author Icon/Favorite Author: Oh, boy, it’s impossible to choose one favorite, but if I could spend a day picking someone’s brain it would probably be Nora Roberts. I think she’s a genius. I mean hello? Roarke.

Favorite Word: "Haboob" — I recently learned this word because I have a friend who lives in AZ. And more importantly, my husband didn’t know it. First time that’s EVER happened. I was so excited I did a happy in-your-face dance. As he wins at absolutely everything, he didn’t care.
