About Lisa and where you can find her:

Lisa Coots grew up in the tiny Louisiana village of Lacassine, but has always yearned for the challenge of a new adventure. Her youthful dreams ranged from the artistic: as a sketch artist and painter; to the studious: as a writer and librarian.

Lisa’s dreams were nudged aside, as dreams often are, by conventional reality. Marriage and motherhood came easily to her and she successfully raised three remarkable children and an amazing husband. When the first pangs of empty nest syndrome came a rapping, she eagerly returned to the artistic passions of her youth; painting, designing, and of course, writing.

Lisa Coots now lives in a slightly larger village in Louisiana with her loving family and lots of furry friends.

Fabulous Author Friday – Trish F. Leger

Today’s guest is T2016_09_23-trish-leger-picturerish F. Leger. She is funny, down to earth, and always a blast to be around. Not to mention she writes out of this world stories. If you want a good paranormal read (and one that’s pretty hot) she’s got it! I love reading her work. Her characters are so fully developed, they suck you into their world before you know it.

Trish is part of a group of authors presenting the Legacy Falls charitable anthology project. Take some time to support this cause.

Legacy Falls project summary:

Each author will donate a portion of their sales to the wounded or returning veteran charities of their choice.

Families from Legacy Falls share a tradition of loss.

Lovers have said farewell at the Pleasant Street train station for seventy years.

Mothers have welcomed home their sons in the ticker tape return from war and loss.

After every war, every battle, Legacy Falls opens its arms and its hearts to the wounded warriors returning home.


2016_09_23-trish-leger-her-southern-temptationTITLE: Her Southern Temptation: A Legacy Falls Romance
AUTHOR: Trish Leger

SUMMARY: A transplanted northerner, new to the south…

Allie Magill is familiar with the hard knocks of life. The widowed mother of a four year old, Allie has landed in the South where the air is thick with humidity, the nights are hot, the men are honorable, but even hotter. But business as usual is stilted when she meets the new construction company owner, Jake Warren. Now it’s all Allie can do to keep her hands to herself and not put her job, or heart, on the line.

A southern man whose world is rocked by a northern beauty…

Jake Warren knows little about things up north, but he does know Allie Magill is unexpected. The liaison for a hotel chain, Allie enters Jake’s work life to make sure business goes as planned. But once he gets a taste of Allie, and takes a peek behind that closed-off northern exterior, all bets are off. He knows he has to make her see that life and love in the south flows differently and he hopes once Allie sees how sweet surrender can be, she won’t be able to turn him down.

Battling ghosts from her past, Allie will have to learn to accept Jake’s way of life and win the heart of her southern temptation.

2016_09_09-trish-leger-her-druid-temptation Her Druid Temptation – Amazon link  (This is the book that got me hooked on paranormal romance. Thanks Trish!)


He’s always been her temptation…will she finally give in?

Liana Morgan is the consummate business woman, buttoned-up, strait-laced, and very in tune with every aspect of her restaurants. She is closed off from emotional entanglements of any kind, not letting a single distraction slip under her skin.

Now she’s in New Orleans, tying up the last few loose ends with a new restaurant, when her one temptation strolls, oh-so-casually, back into her life. Traven Campbell is an AMBER DRUID like her, and the one man she’s never been able to completely block from her mind. Every molecule of her ‘good girl’ persona wants him, and always has, but it’s not enough for her…or is it?

Traven Campbell is a player, and proud of it. He’s easy-going, laid-back, and an expert bachelor. But even womanizers have jobs. His latest is shadowing a target for the New Orleans P.D. But while on the watch, he’s shocked to see Liana, the one woman he’s never managed to coerce into bed, WITH his target.

Determined to find answers, Traven confronts Liana, and soon business and pleasure are mixing with the sultry heat of New Orleans. Will Liana finally give in? Will Traven be able to tempt her beyond her invisible moral line? Or will Traven’s target call the final shot?


About Trish:

Trish F Leger lives in South Louisiana and also has a full time job–other than the writing. She is married and from a loving, boisterous family. Since food is so important in the south, it is also important to her, ranking right up there with writing, reading and watching movies.

Writing with a strong sensual bent, intent on capturing the growing relationship between a couple falling in love, Trish adds warmth and emotion to her stories.

She is a fan of everything from Drama to Historical Romance.

Trish also asks that you please read HER DRUID TEMPTATION, the short that introduces the AMBER DRUIDS to readers, first. The AMBER DRUID series is stand alone, but she understands that some readers would like to read in order of publication.

Bride Interrupted


With a move to Florida, Kayla plans to change things up a bit. Grandpa’s beach bar would be a fantastic place to please her demanding brides. Beach locale, drinks, and food? Perfect.

Only, a few things stand in her way… Colton, and her brides being attacked and left for dead.

Colton runs Gracie’s Place and doesn’t need interference in the form of Kayla, or her plans for the future of his bar. Women aren’t high on his priority list, especially infuriating women who are trying to run him out.

Who is really attacking Kayla’s clients? Is it Colton, who would rather be left alone to stew in his tortured past? Or some other, more sinister person?

Who will win this battle of brides, bars, and hearts?


Till next time,

Love, hugs, and kisses – Taylor

Drago has to protect Nonna’s inn, even if it means getting close enough to Chase to convince her she needs to leave.

Every girl has a secret (or two)…2016_09_09 MK Meredith - Malibu Secrets

On the verge of losing the Malibu home she inherited from her great-aunt, Addi Dekker is completely failing to prove to her family she can make it as a writer. Not exactly how a girl proves her independence. If she doesn’t want to give up her dream and go back to the soul-sucking job she just left, Addi has to swallow her dislike of Hollywood and rent the house out to the sexy-as-hell film producer.

And maybe (shhhh!) save money by secretly living there, too.

Roque Gallagher is pouring his heart and savings into his first independent film to make the industry acknowledge him for his talent and not just his family name. Addi’s home is perfect for the shoot, but she’s far too tempting. He’s never been able to handle work and a relationship, and this is the film of a lifetime. Between a shrinking budget and his director quitting, the last thing he needs is a sexy-as-sin tease like Addi. And he has a feeling there’s something she’s hiding…
