What would you rather do? Compete for a bachelor or grow grapes?


Here's a new twist on the traditional romance novel: take another try at love or grow grapes.
What if your twin sister ropes you into it?

Synopsis: Sabrina Kerrigan is a sassy, independent woman whose fiancĂ© ditched her a week before they were to be married. Since then, she gives all her attention to a backyard filled with flowers and a spindly grape arbor. Her meddling twin, Lilith, thinks Sabrina’s had enough time to grieve the relationship that wasn’t meant to be. Lil registers her to be one of twenty-one bachelorettes who will vie for one guy’s heart in an event called Pick Me. Sabrina is furious at Lil for immersing her in what is sure to be three weeks of nonstop chaos. The only reason she agreed to take part is because the entry fee goes to charity. The minute Sabrina arrives at the hotel a case of mistaken identity sets the chaos in motion. 

Millionaire winery owner, Beau Reinholt has had the worst luck with women. He seems to pick those interested in his money not him. His best friend, Marco Santaguida, the director for Pick Me, cons Beau into being this year’s bachelor. Beau agrees on one condition - the women aren’t to know his true identity until he either falls in love or finds extreme-like with one of the candidates. Everything goes smoothly until he meets Sabrina Kerrigan. She ticks him off right away. She also turns him on. The more Beau tries to focus on the twenty other women the more he’s drawn to the one who says she doesn’t want any part of him. 

Decisions, decisions. Do you want to see more of what author Jan Romes has to offer?

Catching up with Lady Justice!

Lady Justice has been busy since I last blogged about her. What's this about a spy and a killer clown?

Walt and his senior sidekicks match wits with a killer clown, and an assassin hired by Big Pharma to murder a holistic physician working on a cure for cancer.
    Things were going bad when a mysterious government spy appeared to save the day, but this spy had an ulterior motive, and it involved a member of Walt’s entourage.
    Chemtrails, conspiracies, and clowns are a recipe for disaster, but Walt and Lady Justice prevail.

And for you cat lovers...The Kindle download is free April 20-24:

A treasure hunter is murdered and his discovery is stolen.
    Members of a terrorist cell which have plans for a devastating attack, recognize Sara Savage, a retired CIA operative, kidnap her, and hold her for ransom.
    And who does Lady Justice send to help private investigator Walt Williams save the day?
    Clarence the Cat!
    Walt forms an uneasy alliance with the feline crime fighter to solve the mysteries and bring the bad guys to justice.
    It’s a laugh a minute as Walt spars with his new furry partner and the forces of evil.

And - the books are autographed by Bob himself!
