Admit it, there are some songs that bring back memories every time you hear them. Whether it’s thoughts of hitting the open road on your way to the beach (or the shore as Jersey folk like to say) or of a special time in your life, those songs stick with you.
Wouldn’t it Be Nice by the Beach Boys is one of those songs! Being down the shore on summer nights brings the sounds of the Beach Boys to mind for sure. But this song is doubly special because it’s “Our Song.” It was part of the soundtrack for the movie Shampoo which was my first date with my husband. Being without transportation, we went to see the movie together on campus at Villanova. Brings back good memories every time I hear it.
FYI – this song is from the Pet Sounds album which is considered one of the best albums of all time. If you love the Beach Boys like I do, check out Love and Mercy which is the Brian Wilson story and has a lot on the creation of the Pet Sounds album. Fabulous movie.
I am honored to help Sharon Hamilton today with her cover reveal blitz for “SEAL My Home: Bad Boys of Team 3 (SEAL Brotherhood #9)”! Woo hoo! Congrats on the new release, Sharon!
SEAL My Home by Sharon Hamilton
Bad boy Rory Kennedy was raised in foster care, bouncing in and out of trouble along the way. He finds his true family and real brothers as a Navy SEAL, one of the Navy’s elite warriors. When his BUD/S instructor barked the SEAL’s Motto: Only Easy Day Was Yesterday, he knew he had found home.
Megan Palmer works in a bookstore and finds her passion in life through reading steamy romance novels. Her brief affair with a man she later found out was married has left her damaged, until she meets the handsome SEAL, who stands ready to open her world and give her things she’s only dreamed.
On a skiing trip, Rory suffers a possible career-ending injury and also comes face to face with a past he never knew of, and a family who had abandoned him. His relationship with Megan is tested to the breaking point as Rory wades through the dark waters of recovery and whether or not he can live without the life he loves. A home-grown terrorist cell forces his hand and he discovers his true purpose.

Here’s a little teaser about the book:
When Marcy is faced with tough decisions after facing the loss of her father, will she run or will she stay and fight for her man?
Marcy’s story continues in book 4 of the Rocking series with yet more tests of her relationship with Rick and her best friend Esme. With the arrival of Ashton, Rick’s son, Marcy needs to decide what she wants from her life and with her own revelations, both her and Rick have some decisions to make.
But with Ashton’s birth mother turning up on numerous occasions, both Rick and Marcy are in for a rough ride, one that will follow them through Rick’s tour with Flix and will penetrate every area of their lives.
Rocking Ashton proves to be another rollercoaster ride of emotions that is ‘The Rocking series’.
This book is not only steamy, but also touching and at times heartbreaking. The perfect page turner.
This book has some sexual content and heavy language. Not intended for people under the age of 18.
For those of you who have been waiting since book 1, DARKNESS CALLS, for Maggie and David’s story: HERE IT IS! Finally, yes, I know, but like Diana and Ryder’s story, I really felt that Maggie and David needed an intensely deep and powerful story line for their romance.
BORN TO LOVE is Maggie and David’s story, but it also continues the emotional story arc between Diana and Ryder. No spoilers on that one, but there will be a big event right here on November 25th and you’re all invited.
So here is the teaser for BORN TO LOVE:
Fated to survive…
FBI agent David Harris’s life nearly came to an end during a botched raid. Though he survived, his body and spirit were broken by the perilous underworld he believes his estranged partner, Diana Reyes, has embraced with her Vampire husband. Now, left to a life in a wheelchair, David is angry, distrustful, and withdrawn…
Meant to love…
Seeing her former lover, David, again rekindles feelings long forgotten for Maggie Gonzalez. But she’s been thrown into a terrifying future as a werewolf, threatening to destroy what they might have again.
Destined to die…
Diana Reyes has lived on the edge since her blood contamination by Vampire Ryder Latimer. Her unexpected pregnancy is putting a huge strain on her body, but she’ll do anything to help right the wrongs of the past and help her former partner find happiness…even if it’s in the arms of a werewolf.
OMG, I’m so excited about this one. You’re also going to meet some new shifter characters in this book whose stories you will see in future novels. Yes, I do plan quite a few more books in the series.
