What a perfect title to start things off!
Turn Up The Heat by Kimberly Kincaid
Available March 4, 2014- A Pine Mountain Novel #1
There are only so many times a girl can hear those words before she believes that it is, in fact, very much her. Unexpectedly jilted by her locally famous boyfriend and haunted by a boss who makes Attila the Hun look like a lap dog, Bellamy Blake does what any self-respecting girl in her shoes would do. She rounds up her two best girlfriends and makes plans to get the hell out of Dodge. . .
But Bellamy’s escape plan takes a nose dive on the side of rural route 164 when her transmission self-destructs, leaving her in the middle of a cell phone dead zone with nothing but her wits. Oh, and Shane Griffin, the hottest mechanic who’s ever checked under her hood.
Yet this small-town man isn’t all he seems. Can Shane and Bellamy prove that sometimes the most unlikely ingredients make the most deliciously sexy mix?
Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she’s not sitting crosslegged in an ancient desk chair known as “The Pleather Bomber,” she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a 2011 RWA Golden Heart® finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. She resides in northern Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.
And, this book has Perfect Timing!
Perfect Timing by Brenda Jackson

Maxine Chandler and Mya Rivers were once the best of friends, sisters by choice. Now, a fifteen-year class reunion cruise to the Caribbean could renew their powerful bond–just when they need it most.
After heartbreak and tragedy, Maxi doesn’t expect her shipboard romance with a former high school rebel to be more than a sizzling distraction, but then he offers her a gift so profound she can’t refuse–even when it could mean a crushing loss. Mya, on the other hand, seems blessed with a perfect marriage and family. But her work is taking over her life and another woman might be taking her husband.
As they struggle with the limits of love, loyalty, and trust, Mya and Maxi reclaim a deep and abiding friendship–one that will inspire them to face the future, whatever it may bring. . .

Killer Honeymoon by G.A. McKevett
Available March 4, 2014
Plus-sized P.I. Savannah Reid and her new husband, Dirk Coulter, were hoping for a little honeymoon excitement, but finding a freshly killed body on the beach wasn’t what they had in mind. To their surprise, the recently deceased is Amelia Northrop, the popular L.A. anchorwoman whose super sexy looks landed her a super wealthy husband. Now, instead of hosting the news, Amelia will be the lead story.
The local police clearly don’t want Savannah’s help, so she does a little digging on her own–and what she discovers could blow the case wide open. It seems Amelia crossed more than a few powerful people on her way to the top–and learned the hard way that karma can be a girl’s worst enemy. The question is, who hated Amelia enough to shoot her dead in broad daylight? Savannah will have to find out, before a killer gets away with murder. . .
G.A. McKevett is the pseudonym of a well-known author. She is currently working on the seventh Savannah Reid mystery.
