Remember us…when I can’t.
Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.
A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.
Jim Whelan is on autopilot.
A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.
Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.
When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.
50 First Dates meets Awakenings in this emotional love story by international and best selling author, Emma Scott.
WARNING A Five-Minute life contains subject matter that might be sensitive to some readers.

Long time no see! I know I’m pretty late to the new year celebration but here I am, kickstarting the first blog post in 2019 with one of my top favorite authors, Emma Scott’s, brand new re-release, a.k.a. Unbreakable! *smiling sheepishly*

<Updated Dec. 16th, Sunday>
So Emma posted an announcement on her Facebook Page, where she confirmed that Una Bella Anima: A Beautiful Soul won’t be published after careful deliberation. Here’s a tiny part from her original post:
After much struggle and back-and-forth; after discussion with my dear friends and my amazing sisterhood of authors; after quiet contemplation about my own capabilities and mental health; I have come to the conclusion that Una Bella Anima, the novella that was to accompany the Beautiful Hearts duet, will not be published.
As sad as I was when learning such bad news, I could totally understand why Emma made such a hard decision considering all the heartbreaking things she endured this year after losing her beloved daughter, Isabel. Therefore, please send her some love in any way possible and go read the Beautiful Hearts duet. ❤
I’m sure Emma will appreciate all your support. Thank you. 🙂

Hey, guys! This will be a rather short post because I’m squeezing quality time during work and sleep just to spread some love for my favorite contemporary romance author, Emma Scott‘s, upcoming novella, Una Bella Anima: A Beautiful Soul!
Una Bella Anima is a novella featuring two secondary characters in the Beautiful Hearts duet, coming out in late August and mid-October, respectively. Even though this book shouldn’t be read without reading the duet first, I personally think the duet itself is worthy of giving a shot so hopefully you’ll end up reading all three of them. 😀
Whoop! Whoop! Look what I’ve got for you today!
It’s the cover reveal to one of my most anticipated books this year because it’s from my all-time-favorite author, Emma Scott! ❤
Let me introduce you to her upcoming duet–Beautiful Hearts–including Bring Down the Stars (comes out on July 26th) and Long Live the Beautiful Hearts (August 9th). Isn’t this exciting!? Keep reading and you’ll get more information about this must-be-heartbreakingly-awesome duet. 🙂
Here we go!
It’s spring, 1970. The Vietnam War has been raging for years with no end in sight. Janey Martin, a California college student and aspiring journalist is tired of writing puff pieces about her university men’s sports teams. She wants to be taken seriously as a journalist and as a woman. With riots at their doorstep, her wealthy father sends Janey to the Sorbonne in Paris to finish her college education away from the chaos.
Janey is reluctant to leave the Big Story that is Vietnam, but vows to prove herself. Much to her dismay, her first assignment is to interview the hotshot star forward of a local soccer team. Janey is sure Adrien Rousseau is going to be like every other playboy jock she’s ever dealt with, but quickly learns there is much more to Adrien than meets the eye.
The mysterious, sexy footballer just might be the biggest story of Janey’s life.
How’s your week so far? I hope you’re doing great. 🙂
Today I’m excited to reveal another gorgeous cover for one of my all-time-favorite authors, Emma Scott‘s new book, One Good Man. Technically, it’s not a new story since it’s already published in Team Player, an anthology written by Emma along with 10 other authors back in 2017, BUT she promised there’d be an EXTENDED EPILOGUE,
a.k.a. steamy r-rated scenes, in this standalone; hence, there’s no way I’m turning down this fantastic opportunity to spread the word about it. *wiggling eyebrows*
Without further ado, let’s check the stunning cover out, shall we?
Today, I’m so honored and excited to be a part of this amazing blog tour hosted by the lovely Emma Scott, one of my top favorite authors of all time, and I can’t wait to share her new book, In Harmony, with all of you!
There’ll be lots of sweet stuff in today’s post, including an excerpt (one of my most favorite scenes in the book!), some gorgeous teasers,
my review, and a giveaway! So what are you waiting for? Let’s dig in!
“Where you are is home…”
At age fourteen, Zelda Rossi witnessed the unthinkable, and has spent the last ten years hardening her heart against the guilt and grief. She channels her pain into her art: a dystopian graphic novel where vigilantes travel back in time to stop heinous crimes—like child abduction—before they happen. Zelda pitches her graphic novel to several big-time comic book publishers in New York City, only to have her hopes crash and burn. Circumstances leave her stranded in an unfamiliar city, and in an embarrassing moment of weakness, she meets a guarded young man with a past he’d do anything to change…
Beckett Copeland spent two years in prison for armed robbery, and is now struggling to keep his head above water. A bike messenger by day, he speeds around New York City, riding fast and hard but going nowhere, his criminal record holding him back almost as much as the guilt of his crime.
Zelda and Beckett form a grudging alliance of survival, and in between their stubborn clash of wills, they slowly begin to provide each other with the warmth of forgiveness, healing, and maybe even love. But when Zelda and Beckett come face to face with their pasts, they must choose to hold on to the guilt and regret that bind them, or let go and open their hearts for a shot at happiness.
The Butterfly Project is a novel that reveals the power of forgiveness, and how even the smallest decisions of the heart can—like the flutter of a butterfly’s wings—create currents that strengthen into gale winds, altering the course of a life forever. (From: Goodreads)
Today, I took great delight in revealing the beautiful cover for one of my top favorite authors, Emma Scott‘s, upcoming release, In Harmony and ahhh, I will read and review this book no matter what!
In case you’re not familiar with this extraordinary author, she describes herself as a writer who “writes romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.” on her blog.
Seriously, her stories contain EVERYTHING I look forward to in a book! Anyway, let’s get on to the cover reveal for In Harmony, shall we?
