Tessa Henning is no damsel. But she's definitely in distress. If her husband really is involved in the ivory trade, he'll come after her when he finds out what she's uncovered. Unfortunately, the only person who can help is Mac Walker. Stubborn, fiercely independent, danger-loving bush pilot Mac Walker—with whom she shares custody of their orphaned nephew.

Does following her passion mean losing her way?

Marine Ben Corallis is an expert at facing death, but nothing comes close to the terror that grounds him when his wife is killed in a car accident the day he returns from duty. He's left to raise an infant, a toddler and a ten-year-old girl who hasn't uttered a word since her mother's death.

It's hard not to care for the widowed marine with three young children. Yet he's still grieving, too burdened with guilt to fall in love again. And Hope Alwanga's future as a doctor awaits her on the other side of the world, in Nairobi. If two such opposites can't agree on a common country, how can they ever create a safe place to call home?


After a childhood enriched with exotic travels and adventures (both in books and real life), USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Rula Sinara is now settled in rural Virginia with her husband, three boys and crazy but endearing pets. When she's not writing, she's busy attracting wildlife to her yard, watching romantic movies or researching trees on her garden wish list.

In addition to being a coffee addict, she's also a 2015 HOLT Medallion Award of Merit winner, a 2014 National Reader's Choice Award winner and double finalist, a 2015 Golden Quill Award Runner Up and a 2015 Book Buyers Best third place recipient.

We're sharing the Grand Finale for THE BAD BOY'S BABY by CINDI MADSEN!

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Grand Finale for
The Bad Boy's Baby
By Cindi Madsen

We hope you enjoyed learning a little about Cam, Emma, and their daughter Zoey as they navigate family and the possibility of love. If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out...

Launch - Interview with the Author

Q: What do you hope readers take with them after they’ve read The Bad Boy’s Baby?

A: I hope that they get a feel for Hope Springs and the fun characters who live there. I hope that they laugh and swoon as they watch Emma and Cam figure out how to do the co-parenting thing, and that they have a big smile on their face when they finish reading it. 

LibriAmoriMiei - Review

"This novel is a real treat, a really sweet and romantic love story. The good girl, the bad guy and an adorable two year old baby, it's really hard not to love this romance. . . I highly recommend this one!"

The Written Adventure - Hope Spring’s Town Setting

Hope Springs is a tiny town in Wyoming where everyone knows everyone, one of the town committee members has CIA-type spy skills, despite her grandmotherly exterior, and events like picnic basket auctions are a yearly thing. There’s also a quilting group that has the beat on the happenings in town, whether it’s gossip or who’s in need of meals and extra support.


With Love for Books - Review

"There are plenty of heartwarming scenes and the ending is wonderful. If you're looking for a great small town love story, this is definitely a book you should read."

Booksomereads - Review

"The Bad Boy's Baby is a fun and easy contemporary romance read that is a perfect addition to anyone's spring or summer reading pile."

Katie's Clean Book Collection - Guest Post: 10 Things a New Dad Learns

1. Keeping toddlers away from mud and water is harder than it sounds.
2. You have to spell things involving favorite foods and movies to avoid the meltdowns mentioning them without having them ready brings on.


Colorimetry - Coming Home for Cam Brantley 

Cam Brantley was known as the Hope Spring’s bad boy, right along with his brother, and his dad never had that great of a reputation, either. As soon as Cam turned eighteen he escaped town and his rough childhood to serve in the Army. His main motivation for coming home is to put hectic missions and bad memories behind him and run a mountain lodge with his brother. 

Becky on Books - Review

"The playful back-and-forth between him and Emma (especially their trash talking competitions–building furniture, fishing–that they participated in) was a whole lot of fun to read. And watching Zoey whip him into shape as a dad? Priceless.

This book practically had me smiling from start to finish."

underneath the covers - 10 Things You Wouldn’t Know About a Bad Boy

He was always curious about the town’s golden girl who forever had her hand up in high school, all the answers on the tip of her tongue. . .


Harlie's Books - Review

"I loved their chemistry from the get go. Great dialogue, being friends and parents first and actually getting to know each other without the smexy times. Connecting on so many different levels besides Zoey, made for a great time watching them fall in love with each other."

Zerina Blossom's Books - Top Ten Favorite Romances

I love talking favorite romances. The hard part is narrowing it down. But here are my favorite romances, from books to movies to TV shows. . .

EskieMama Reads - Review

"This was a fun, heartwarming read if you are looking for a good weekend read with laughs, family & friends, a spunky senior citizen, an adorable 2 year old, second chance romance & a bad boy this book is for you. This was the first book I read by Cindi Madsen & it sure won't be the last. . ."


Getting Your Read On - Review

"This is a great story of second chance love. . . . I enjoyed this book and it's characters. It was easy to settle in and get carried away in the fantastic drama of Cam and Emma's lives." 

deal sharing aunt - Interview

Q: What would you like my readers to know?

A: Well, I’d like to say hello-HI!-and that if you’re looking for a fun, flirty story that will hopefully make you laugh, those are the kind of books I love to write. Of course I think bookish people are some of the best people too. Finding people who can talk reading and books and getting lost in a story is always great.

Kindle and Me - Review

"I liked how realistic their issues were and how they resolved them together. I loved watching Cam turn into a family man and how he adored his daughter. I loved how Emma was grounded but also aware she had a daughter to provide for. . . . I liked the chemistry between Cam and Emma. I sighed at the end."

There are certain words that have always described Cam Brantley: Town bad boy. Soldier. Protector. But never, ever dad. Until he returns home from his latest military tour to discover the girl he had one smoking-hot night with is now mom to the adorable two-year-old Zoey. Who has his eyes.

Plenty of words could describe Emma Walker these days. Mom, dutiful granddaughter, budding designer, the town’s golden child. But when her longtime crush Cam Brantley comes back to town, she knows the perfect word to describe herself: screwed.

Cam and Emma are both shocked to discover he truly wants Zoey in his life. But Cam’s not sure he’s ready to be a dad, and Emma can’t gamble her daughter on maybes. As the long-simmering heat between Cam and Emma reaches a boiling point, he’ll have to work past his demons in order to be the man both girls need.

Daddy duty might be his toughest mission yet…

Sometimes love is right where you left it.

Sadie Hart has a plan: return to her small town of Hope Springs so she can regain her confidence—and bank account—before giving one more shot to her country music dream. The dream that means more to her than anything. The dream she chose over her high school sweetheart, the brooding and sinfully handsome Royce Dixon.

Royce has moved on from his memories of the beautiful Sadie. Now he’s focused solely on running Second Chance Ranch, where he rehabilitates troubled teens through ranch work. But when he needs a new employee and Sadie’s the only one to volunteer, he has no choice but to offer his old flame a job.

Whether riding a horse with the wind in her hair or mucking out the stalls, Sadie can still get Royce’s heart beating like no one else. But Nashville is her dream, and Royce can’t settle for second best.

The road to trouble is paved with sweet temptation… 

Always the rebel in her ultra-conservative family, Quinn Sakata dreams of quitting her dad's real-estate business and restoring the old Mountain Ridge Bed and Breakfast in her hometown of Hope Springs. Except that Quinn's not the only person bidding on it. Worse still, her competitor is her high school crush, Heath Brantley, who is all kinds of ripped, tattooed hotness...

So much for her "nice, conservative boys" rule.

Heath has his own reasons for bidding on Mountain Ridge, and he won't give in without a fight - even to the red-lipped hottie with a sailor's mouth. But when their rivalry shifts into an unexpected zing of chemistry, Heath realizes he's in deep trouble. Because it's inevitable that emotions will get involved, and he needs to keep his eyes on the prize before they both get hurt.

Check out the Grand Finale for THE FIREFIGHTER'S REFRAIN by LOREE LOUGH!

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Grand Finale for
The Firefighter's Refrain
By Loree Lough

We hope you enjoyed the reviews, guest posts, and excerpt!
If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out now...


Launch - Welcome to the Tour!

And in The Firefighter’s Refrain, we introduce Sam, making ends meet as an academy instructor while waiting for his dreams of becoming a Nashville recording artist to come true.



Finn Leary has been more or less on her own from the age of 12, when she started waiting tables to help care for her younger sister and problems-riddled parents...

So while Finn likes and admires Sam, she doesn’t want to, because it means putting her heart in someone else’s hands, someone who—like her parents—will eventually let her down.

underneath the covers - Sam Marshall


Sam Marshall was born into a big, loving, tight-knit family out west, and doesn’t understand anything about Finn.

The challenge, he realizes, is bridging the gap between himself and Finn…without doing or saying something that will put him in the Finn Castoffs boat with every other guy who has tried and failed to woo her.

Christy's Cozy Corners - Favorite Recipes from Finn Leary’s The Right Note Café


The Right Note Café Apple Pie & Sweet Tea…the Right Note Way


"The ending was so cute! I definitely recommend this book, and series, to anyone who enjoys clean contemporary fiction."


"I really enjoyed the way the story flows. There's a sweet gentleness to it and the way the characters are developed and interact with each other just warms my soul. Lessons of love, forgiveness, patience, overcoming fears, and independent strength are predominate feelings woven throughout these words."



Ciara scooped crushed ice into identical red-plastic glasses. “You know, I think, I think that Sam guy likes you.”

“All of my customers like me,” Finn teased.

“Yeah, but he’s the only one who stares at you that way.”

“What way?” Finn looked across the diner, straight into the big blue eyes of Sam Marshall, whose dimple appeared at the same time as his charming, slanted smile. It didn’t appear rehearsed, like the flirtations of so many other star-hopefuls that frequented her Right Note Café.


"This book was good. I felt like the plot swirled in the same place at times without a lot of forward movement so for me, it was the characters that made this book shine."


Becky on Books - Review

"A sweet romance–third in the series, but worked just fine as a standalone....I finished the book with a smile…"

I Am A Reader - Nashville Setting


Some scenes in The Firefighter’s Refrain take place in Finn’s diner, The Right Note. Others happen in Sam’s classroom and on-site as Sam instructs soon-to-be firefighters.


Nashville is a unique blend of old and new, and pulses with the hopes and dreams of would-be stars who put all they have into every performance delivered from the stages of a hundred old-fashioned pubs, entertain tourists from all over the world. They don’t call it Music City for nothin’!

Wishful Endings - Being a Country Singer


As someone who spent a few years singing for my supper, I know a little about what it takes to ‘make it’ in the competitive music industry. (Suffice it to say I didn’t possess all of these traits, or I might have a few album covers hanging on my walls, instead of books on the shelves!)...

LibriAmoriMiei - Review

"This is a well-written novel that grabbed and held me from page one. Good plot, lovable characters and a sweet ending. I could only put it down with great difficulty.

If you love clean and romantic stories this book is perfect for you."

Teatime and Books - 10 all-time favorite Country songs & 10 Ways to Sing a Love Song


There’s something genuine and gritty about good old-fashioned Country music. Whether toe-tapping or tear-inducing, each song manages—in the span of a few stanzas—to reach deep into our souls, to make us laugh, or cry, or remember the good times…and the bad…


"A couple of loners with huge hearts connect and enjoy getting to know each other!...

When Sam meets Finn at her cafe, he’s instantly drawn to her. When he hears she’s not up on musicians, he tries to keep his distance, but he can’t help but like her and her adorable kid sis."

We hope you enjoyed meeting the last of the Marshall boys, Sam, and the gal he's interested in, Finn, who both have their own dreams and struggles. Don't forget to enter the giveaway below...

Dreams of stardom took musician and firefighter Sam Marshall far from his Colorado roots. Starting fresh in Nashville hasn't been easy, especially after an injury on the job, but he's working his way to the Grand Ole Opry one open mike at a time, teaching at the fire station to make ends meet. Yet Sam's intentions are shaken when he meets the lovely owner of a local café. Suddenly, Sam's dreams are filled with her. Too bad that as the daughter of country-music wannabes, Finn Leary's been there, done that. She'll never choose a musician. So how can Sam possibly get the girl and keep the guitar?

Interview with the Author

What is your motivation behind The Bad Boy’s Baby? Why did you want to write it?

I’d actually planned on writing a different story in the series (Cory’s story, for those who’ve read the Hope Springs series) but when Heath’s brother Cam came to be such a big part of Crazy for the Competition, I knew I needed to tell his story. I wanted to see this silent soldier type thrown for a loop, and I’d always wanted to write a secret baby story, so this seemed like the perfect time. 

(Side note: Several readers have asked about Cory’s story, and I am writing that one next. It just took me a while to figure out what type of girl would throw him for a loop.)

What do you hope readers take with them after they’ve read it?

I hope that they get a feel for Hope Springs and the fun characters who live there. I hope that they laugh and swoon as they watch Emma and Cam figure out how to do the co-parenting thing, and that they have a big smile on their face when they finish reading it. 

Do you have a favorite scene?

I’m rather fond of the camping scenes. Cam takes Emma into the mountains, and they make a bet on who can catch more fish, winner gets a striptease. I had a lot of fun writing that. 

Share something about you that is unique - maybe about how/where you write... or favorite snack foods?

I’m a farm girl at heart with a shoe and Diet Mountain Dew addiction and I’m a sucker for a good kissing scene, whether in TV, movies, or books.

Launch - Welcome to the Tour for His First Choice

I can promise you that if you join me in this journey, you’ll be welcomed with a sense of friendship and belonging. My posts are authentic and my books are heartfelt.

Becky on Books - Excerpt

JEM COULDN’T BELIEVE his eyes when he pulled into Uncle Bob’s on Saturday, glanced toward the beach and saw Lacey Hamilton in double. In both forms his fantasies had taken. One was drably overdressed, and the other rather undressed. He skipped over the version with long, tanned legs exposed, and stared at the one with loose black cotton shorts that hung to her knees.

Night Owl Reviews - Interview

What is your latest book, His First Choice, about?

A twist I've never seen or read before in the romance world, but a story I believe needs to be told - one that speaks to the heart of true romance. Lacey is an ex-child star whose identical twin sister is still in Hollywood, a soap opera star. Though she and her sister have identical looks, her sister always shines brighter. Lacey has moved to Santa Raquel to be a family services social worker. As part of the 'Where Secrets Are Safe' high risk team, she meets Jem Winston, whose four year old son is showing signs of abuse. Jem's story is a heart breaker. His First Choice delivers his happy ending.

Beck Valley Books - Not an Ordinary Book

This book is…not ordinary. I think it’s powerful. And emotionally compelling. And I hope so much you give it a chance. I can tell you why I think this, and hope this. I can describe Jem to you. He’s the hero of my heart.

underneath the covers - Imagine

Imagine, you’re identical twins. You both look exactly the same. And yet…she gets all the attention. Can you imagine how difficult that would be? You adore your sister. She’s sweet and kind and really good to you. But…wouldn’t that be hard? Always feeling second best, without even knowing why?

You can imagine…or you can pick up a copy of His First Choice and live the life with Lacey Hamilton – and her identical twin Kacey – as they figure it all out.

EskieMama Reads - Excerpt

He thought about telling his son they absolutely did not want to speak with the other woman. Telling him that for their own safety they had to stay away from her. But he couldn’t figure out how to do so when Levi had been told she was a friend. He’d let her take Levi alone to a playroom. He’d let her in their home, to see Levi’s room and most prized possessions.

Lady Amber's Reviews - Coming in First

Kacey, my heroine, isn’t the middle child. As a matter of fact, she was born first. But she seems to slide into the background her entire life. She’s overshadowed by her identical twin sister.
I’m not a twin. Didn’t even have a sister – though I always wanted one desperately – but I understand those feelings of being ‘on stage’ (for her, literally) of being at the event, but not coming in first. Not shining the brightest.

Thoughts of a Blonde - Review

"A gut wrenching story that hooked me by the first page and had me feeling so many emotions throughout! I smiled at the adorableness of this little boy, I ached for the pain being felt, I felt anger, and most of all, I hoped for a happily ever after for these two special guys that wormed their way into my heart. Highly recommend!"

Harlie's Books - Review

"I can not stress that while Ms. Quinn’s books have a message there is also some of the best love stories to date. Poignant, relatable and emotional. You can’t help but fall in love with both characters. Ms. Quinn tackles the hard issues but in the end, love always wins. Always…"

Brooke Blogs - I Am Honored

I’ve said since the moment I started writing for Harlequin that I write to touch women’s lives. To find them where they are and give them a heart-felt boost – whether it be by giving them a couple of hours of enjoyment, to replenish themselves, so they can step back up to their plates. Or, more often, to reach out to hurting hearts, to hold on gently, and walk with them back to the road to joy.

Wishful Endings - Not Your Ordinary Romance

My books are filled with hard topics, issues that face real women, without any sugarcoating to make them more palatable. I didn’t choose this route. The voices, the stories, the people that appear in my head, chose me.

The best decision they'll ever make

Lacey Hamilton is used to living in the background. Overshadowed her entire life, she stepped out of the Hollywood limelight and into the role she's meant to play: a counselor, part of the High Risk Team started by The Lemonade Stand women's shelter in Santa Raquel.

Her caseload leads her to the doorstep of Jeremiah "Jem" Bridges to rescue a little boy. She's not supposed to fall in love with the rugged construction worker and his adorable son. Love and duty, though, don't always agree. Especially when a truth is uncovered that neither she nor Jem is prepared to face.
