Darlene Fredette and Still Moments Magazine gave me this great review of "Adore Me," and I can't thank them enough for it. This is the first time I've ever requested a review from Still Moments. They were prompt in answering and accepting my request, gracious in notifying me that they were indeed going to review the story and would do their best to have the review posted by Valentine's Day at the latest, and just plain wonderful in emailing me that the review was finally ready. All in all, it was a terrific experience. 

Below is Darlene's lovely review:

Adore Me

Adore Me (A Candy Hearts Romance)
Darcy Lundeen
January 2016

A hacker is targeting Meredith Crismis’s struggling new dessert company. But when the tech firm she depends on sends hunky computer expert Vlad Wiznitsky to fix the problem, things begin improving for Meredith, both personally and professionally. 

First, her relationship with Vlad heats up to the sizzling point, then Meredith’s given the chance to snag a wealthy customer who could put her company’s bottom line permanently into the black. It seems like a dream come true, until the persistent hacker turns her “Divine Desserts” website into an X-rated marketplace, the wealthy customer demands a discontinued decorative item or else no sale, and her relationship with Vlad begins to unravel under the pressure of her obsession with professional success. 

For a woman who deals with creating intricate wedding cakes and luscious muffins, life has suddenly become the ultimate recipe for disaster. 

Between The Pages 
Strong characters, smooth dialogue, and a sweet plot fill the pages of this short story. Meredith focuses too much on one particular cake order which puts her relationship with Vlad on the line, but thankfully she has the perfect hero who looks past her obsession. A cute Valentine story perfect for reading any time of the year. This one-sitting read will have your sweet-tooth craving for a handful of candy hearts.

ALL MINE by Tamrie Foxtail

Candy Hearts – ALL MINE by Tamrie Foxtail

All Mine


For nearly a decade, Maggie has put the needs of her younger siblings ahead of her own. Now she’s willing to accept a marriage without passion in order to protect her brother, but fate has a wicked sense of humor. On the eve of her wedding, Maggie meets the man of her dreams.

When Shamus loses a bet, the penalty is a blind date. Shamus is prepared to endure a long, boring night; the last thing he expects is to find the woman who can bring his heart back to life.

But Maggie is keeping secrets–and her engagement is only one of them.


“And we are thirty seconds from the New Year,” the TV announced.

Shamus stood in front of Maggie, drawing her to her feet.

“Twenty seconds!”

His dark blue eyes appeared almost indigo in the soft light of the bar.

“Ten seconds!”


He cupped her face in his hands.


I can’t kiss him. I’m engaged.

As the old year closed and the new one began, Shamus touched his lips to hers. The noise surrounding them faded.

The warmth of his callused hands framed her face. His rum and coke flavored kiss began with a tenderness that stole the breath from her lungs. As his kiss grew in intensity, the warm swirls that had danced in her blood all night grew as well, reaching a lava hot stage within seconds.

When Maggie was fifteen, her mother told her about the first time she kissed Maggie’s father. “Once in your life,” her mother said, “there’s a kiss that shatters everything you thought you knew and changes the direction of your life.”

She understood now. Maggie pressed her fingers to her lips in a fruitless attempt to hold onto the sweetest kiss of her life. Tears strangled her heart at the realization that it was also the most bitter, since it could only mean farewell.
