Title: The Hometown Hazard

Genre: New Adult, Romance
Release date: January 29, 2016
Jules Coronado has been away from her hometown for almost a decade but when an intruder breaks in to her childhood home, she finds herself coming back. Changes evidently took place in her small town, including her childhood best friend’s younger brother, Kip – now tall, slightly scruffed, all grown up and caught climbing into their garden wall.
Kip Villamor has a mission and despite Jules’ doubts, they team up: going on fieldtrips, tackling unsuspecting men, and trespassing offices to dig up dirt. But Jules has secrets of her own, one that might be exposed – unless she keeps her walls up. But climbing walls are Kip’s forte, remember?  

Will her secrets keep her on his side, or will it force her to disappear again?

    Royal Marriage Market RWB - teaser 1  
“You go by Chris?”
             “It’s an acceptable nickname for Christian.” The owner of the name snatches his glass of champagne back, chugging the rest of the drink. Naturally, this promptly sets off another round of coughing.
            Parker is now the one to smack Christian’s back, and I am grateful because I most certainly do not need to be touching him again, even if in a life-saving gesture.
“Maybe so,” I murmur as Christian, rapidly turning redder from what surely must be embarrassment more than alcohol down the wrong pipe, shoves his friend’s hand away. “But it doesn’t fit.”
“If I might be so bold to ask, Your Highness, how so?” Parker inquires at the same time Christian wheezes, “What does that mean?”
            I side skirt the men to claim a chocolate covered strawberry from the dessert table. “Chris is a boring name.”
            “I believe you’ve just issued an unforgiveable insult to all the Chrises in the world,” Christian says flatly while Parker struggles to hold in his mirth.
            “Of course I haven’t. I simply said Chris is a boring name. Look at Elsa; it is a hopelessly old-fashioned name you find in old women who bake streusel. My parents aged me the moment I came out of the womb.” I point the zebra-striped berry at my sparring partner. “Now that is unforgiveable. You were given a nice name and have elected to make it boring when it doesn’t suit you one bit.”
            Too much silence expands between us; I am tricked into looking up at him once more. One of his dark eyebrows arches upward. “Are you saying you don’t find me boring?”
            Did I? Oh, bollocks. I did, didn’t I? I clear my throat and smile winsomely. “Just because I don’t wish to marry you doesn’t mean I find you boring as a bag of rocks.”
            Both of his eyebrows shoot up, as if I informed him grass is blue and sky is green. As if he doesn’t already know he’s interesting. Please. Must I remind him of all the glossies dedicated to his comings and goings?
“When we were children, His Highness was teased quite a bit about his name,” Parker tells me.
            I toss the strawberry stem back onto the table; it’s whisked up by a passing waiter in less than a second. “What! Why?”
            “I’m named after a religion,” Christian grinds out. “There was Prince Jew. Prince Muslim. Prince Buddhist. Prince Hindu. Prince Zoroastrian. There were lots of choices, you see.”
            Another moment I want nothing more than to just laugh and laugh. “How delightful. Now, those nicknames aren’t boring. Sacrilegious, yes, but definitely not boring.”
            “You have a seed in your front teeth,” is Christian’s response.
            “You are a veritable Prince Charming, publically pointing out women’s flaws. How chivalrous of you.”
It is annoying how much I like that he refuses to appear properly chastised.

Every decade, the world’s monarchs and their heirs secretly convene to discuss global politics and social issues—and arrange marriages between kingdoms.

Elsa may be the Hereditary Princess of Vattenguldia, but she finds the entire situation archaic and unsavory. While she wants what's best for her country, she isn't about to jump into an unwanted relationship—let alone a marriage—with a virtual stranger. Of course, her feelings matter little to her parents, whose wheeling and dealings over trade pacts and alliances achieved at her expense begin the moment they set foot in California for the Summit. So when a blindingly handsome royal runs into her, she doesn't hesitate to tell him there's no way she's marrying him.

Christian is all too happy to agree: no marriage. As the Hereditary Grand Duke of Aiboland, his main goal is to get through the summit without a bride being foisted on him. Which is why he suggests they help each other field potential intendeds. As Christian slowly gets to know Elsa, though, he realizes they have a lot more in common than just their feelings about the Royal Marriage Market. Only he can't fall for her, because royal or not, they're not meant for each other.

Elsa and Christian will have to evaluate matters of the heart verses those of state and crown, and decide whether or not tradition trumps love.

"The perfect royal romance." Nichole Chase, New York Times bestselling author.

"Damn, do I love his too-ness."

Elsa is a polished princess with a very long name and very strong opinions and beliefs.

Christian is dubbed as a Prince Perfect but he doesnt want it that way. Not when it pleases his She-Wolf of a Mother.

When the two meet at the RMM, sparks fly, but not the way you think it will. From completing firsts together to discovering more about their royal situations, they can't help involving feelings in the mix.

Two sides to the story that I love. There's the romantic parts of the RMM where it resembles tv shows about match making and then there's the side where the sense of duty never leaves the royals. It's not solely about how two people fell in love with each other, but also how love and duty does not have to be seperate.

If you've read the past books of Heather Lyons, then you'll know she is a craftsman for diverse characters, strong female heroines and lovable love interests. If you enjoy one or all of them, this is a perfect read for you.

Heather - You should think about making this into a series! ;)

Petyr has never found it necessary to consider the humans as anything more than distant, inferior beings–until now. They are the cause of the fatal disease that has plagued his realm, taking the lives of too many of his kind. As a future leader of a realm in peril, Petyr must find a way to resist and cure the affliction. He must enter the unfamiliar realm, appear to be an ordinary eighteen year-old human, observe and learn.

However, things don't exactly go according to plan. Instead of embarking single-mindlendly on his sober mission, Petyr meets and 18 year old girl who does things to his emotions that he can't quite fathom or control.

Petyr is falling in love, and he almost forgets the gravity his choices have on his entire world. Despite the risk it poses to his life and hers, he wants to know her, and he wants her to know him–and his world.

 Ever wondered what Peter Pan would be like if he became a college student? Though the story is entirely different, the way that made Peter Pan magical can also be found in Petyr and co. This time, they're here to study humans particularly how they seem to draw their kind and kill them at the same time. Never had he thought that a particular human could affect him so much, leading to him torn between saving his world or protecting the girl who has captured his heart.

Rather than the magic and otherworldly aspect, the book focused much more on the relationships, particularly the relationship between Petyr and Scarlett. Granted, both characters have flaws, and yet, the thing that drew me to the story is that connection that would definitely have an effect on Petyr's kind.

By the end, I really hope that all things would be cleared out, the history of their kind and maybe a book or two on the other characters as well.
