Title: Silver Brewer: The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge
Author: L.B. Dunbar 
Genre: Over 40 Romance Stand alone
Release Date: September 12, 2019
Olivet Pierson needs his land. 

Name your price, Mr. Harrington. 

She has her reasons, and this muscular mountain of masculinity isn’t going to get in her way. However, her heart has a different plan after she accepts his crazy conditions: three nights up on the ridge.
George Harrington is a quiet, giant of a man. 
No sale, Cricket.
He’s a war hero, a widower, and COO for the family brewing company, but his life lacks spontaneity. Then, she arrives, chirping away at him, roaming his body with those sky-blue eyes, and negotiating for something he won’t put a price on. Too bad his heart is immediately sold.
With the challenge accepted, this silver fox can no longer deny his desires for something a little different.
Welcome to Blue Ridge where sexy silver foxes meet their match of feisty vixens.
The Harrington brothers are a spin-off from Second Chance, but don’t you worry, this over 40 romance can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

PP’s Bookshelf - “Sexy. Emotional. Angsty. Real. Honest. Heartbreaking. Swoonworthy. Heartwarming.”

Bibliophile Chloe - “Ms. Dunbar doesn't fail to amaze me with her writing of mature characters, still full of life, still wanting to find love and the holy hotness of the chemistry and smexy times!”

Cee Cee Houston - “L.B. Dunbar has found her niche. The over 40’s is definitely a trope she does extremely well.”

“Before you try to steal my land, perhaps you should learn a thing or two about it.”

I stare up at him as his expression turns virile. 

“I know this piece of property could earn you millions.” I look beyond him, taking in the small bit of landscape I can see around his broad hips and crossed arms.
“I told you, I don’t want the money.” He scoffs. “I’m talking about dirt under your toes. Wind in your face. Stars in your eyes.” His eyes nearly dance as though he has undisclosed information he’s waiting to share with me, and strangely, I want to know his secret. And though dirt under my toes doesn’t sound pleasant, it doesn’t sound terrible either.
Tell me. Tell me all your wisdom and woes. I swallow with the intensity of his glare and rub a hand down the thigh of my jeans.
“Okay, so I’m not Pocahontas. How would I learn?” My voice cracks, sounding meek. Teach me, Yoda.
“From the land.” He pauses. His crossed arms bulge before me and lift with the heave of his frustrated inhale. What would those arms feel like around me?
“And your land will just teach me?” Oh God. Did my voice just drop? Did I exaggerate your land, implying something other than the greenery around us? Damn Marcus and his damnable innuendos, but if this man means I can hike his landscape, I volunteer as tribute. “How?”
“What?” I stammer. My mouth falls open.
“Camping. Three nights of roughing it and then I’ll think about your proposition. You break before that and no deal.”
My proposition? Did I proposition him? Can he see the images racing through my mind? I want to do all kinds of things to him, starting with the body part closest to me. My heart races, and my sweaty palms…sweat more. My breath catches.

Anything whispers through my mind along with the song “Colors of the Wind.”

My eyes narrow. My heart thuds to a screeching halt. 
This is crazy.
But I slowly rise, pressing up on my thigh as I stand. I come to my full height, which doesn’t quite match his, but with the help of the two step difference, I’m close. My gaze meets his fiery eyes. There’s one thing this man needs to learn about me. I like nothing more than to prove others wrong.
“Challenge accepted.”
L.B. Dunbar loves the sweeter things in life: cookies, Coca-Cola, and romance. Her reading journey began with a deep love of fairy tales and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused—yes, that’s the correct word—of having an overactive imagination, to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over two dozen novels, she’s created sexy rom-coms for the over 40; intrigue on an island; MMA chaos; rock star mayhem, and sweet small-town romance. In addition, she earned a title as the “myth and legend lady” for her modernizations of mythology as elda lore. Her other duties in life include mother to four children and wife to the one and only.



How To Wed A Wild Lass: A Medieval Scottish Duet by Kathryn Le Veque & Emma Prince. Historical Romance Release & ARC Review.

Add To

It’s a wild adventure on the border between Scotland and England as twin brothers search for the perfect bride… and end up finding perfect mayhem, madness, and seduction instead! 

Falcon de la Haye was born to be the Earl of Drumburgh. There’s only one problem—so was his twin brother, River. A midwife’s mix-up at their birth has left their clan’s leadership in question. Their father has the perfect solution: whichever of his wayward sons can find a bride first shall be named the next Earl.

But brides don’t come fast… or easily, as Falcon and River will soon discover…

The Jewel’s Embrace by Kathryn Le Veque

River de la Haye is determined to be the next Earl of Drumburgh. Frustrated, and ambitious, River abducts his own uncle because the man has heard of women greatly in need of husbands and he needs the man’s guidance to find these legendary – and desperate – females.

But the predator is about to become the prey.

In the remote borders between Scotland and England, a widow and her three daughters live. Having hardly seen men in their lifetimes, the women capture River when he comes calling. Three big, tough, and strong women hold him captive, demanding that he choose one of them to wed, and River has no desire to pick any one of them. As desperate as he is, he’s not that desperate. But when the youngest daughter, Emerald, finally makes herself known, River realizes he has indeed found his bride… if they can both manage to survive the jealousy of her sisters.

It’s a rollicking adventure in the remote borderlands!

The Siren’s Kiss by Emma Prince

Falcon de la Haye takes to the seas, hell-bent on beating his brother to England in search of a bonny and biddable bride. But fate has other plans. A devastating storm leaves Falcon stranded on a remote island under the care of a mysterious healer.

With an iron will to match Falcon’s, Maerwynn insists on treating him before he sets out once more. But when duty calls, can Falcon leave her behind, or will he succumb to his siren’s kiss?

Is passion stronger than duty?

Don't miss these bodacious border romances!


The Jewels Embrace.

By Kathryn le Veque,


River de la Haye is one of twins.  They have no idea which one was born first so to settle the issue of which will inherit the Earldom their father has set them a contest.  Whoever marries first gets everything.  The brothers love each other but really enjoy competing against each other. 
I'm not going to tell you anything about Emerald because that will spoil a surprise in the book. 
This is so much fun.  Our hero thinks he has the perfect idea.  Oh boy!  is he wrong.  I absolutely love all the characters,  even the sisters.  Although it's only a short story it's still well worth the five stars. 


The Siren's Kiss.

By Emma Prince.


Falcon de la Haye is one of twins who has to find a wife before his brother to inherit the Earldom.
He decides to go by sea to Carlisle but that turns out to be a bad idea. 
He ends up on a tiny island with only one inhabitant. 
Maerwynn is a healer for a small village but she lives alone on the island just off shore since the death of her grandmother.
Not everyone is as thankful to this selfless healer as our hero,  and even he really doesn't want to be there.  His impatience to win his inheritance and her determination that he not move until she says so cause some upheaval for them both. 
A very entertaing story with wonderful characters. 

Both of the twins will learn what is most important in life. Which one will gain the Earldom? 
You will definitely have a good time finding out. 
Great fun.

5 Star Amazon Review - "A Must Read!"
5 Star Review Wendy's Book Blog - "Loved this story!!"
5 Star Goodreads Review - "I loved every page."
Creatively living through music, writing and yoga.
I love the arts and how they move you and make you feel.
Reading has always been a great love of mine right after my love of music. Each song written is a story waiting to be told. Which, along with my over active imagination fueled my desire to write about the chaos that goes on in my head.
I love stringing words together. I love making people get lost in a story and connecting with fictional characters that remind them of someone they know.
I published my first book Shattered in 2013. It's the first installment in the Shattered Hearts Series. 
Shattered started out as an assignment for a college course I took at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. After I graduated college I went through my old papers and reconnected with the story morphing into so much more then what I wrote in my college course.
Now you can find me doing yoga, listening to music and working on getting out all the stories in my head, including dabbling in poetry. (Which I've always had a secret love affair with).
