Pre-Order Release Fantasy Isle - Michelle Hughes

Do you ever have those days when you smack yourself in the forehead and wonder what you were thinking?  That just happened to me.  I didn't realize when I put the first book of Fantasy Isle on Pre-Order for Monday September 3rd, that is was Labor Day.  While I was planning for my mother's birthday this weekend, which of course ranks much higher in importance than anything else, it completely slipped my mind that there was a major holiday around the corner.  What's a girl to do?  Go ahead and publish the book on the day it was scheduled to go out, and hope that readers will pre-order and not forget about the release date.  So that's what I'm doing, and why I'm writing an early release post for Fantasy Isle (Forbidden - Book One).  There will be another post on Labor Day announcing the release, so forgive me in advance for double dipping, so to speak.

With all that being said, here is the post that will go out on Labor Day and you're getting a sneak peek in today.  The links will work today since it's available as a pre-order.  Please share if you don't mind, because I'm pretty sure everyone will be out enjoying family, friends, and cookout on the actual release date, I know I will be.  Much love!

One down on her luck princess.  A place where fantasies come true.  The adventure begins on Fantasy Isle.

She was barely a woman and selling her innocence to save her mother.  I should run away from this fantasy, but the little princess has made me feel alive for the first time in years.  The desire I felt was forbidden, but that didn't stop me from wanting a taste.  No one knew better than me how to make her first time memorable.  I'd be damned if I'd let them try!

He's the sexy man that would claim my body, and nothing more.   I shouldn't desire him, but from the moment we first meet, I'm already seduced. Making love to fulfill a couple's fantasy to watch, I know this is nothing more than a job for him.  I hope when it's all over I can walk away and forget about the man I gave it all to. 

Kindle Press author Michelle Hughes continues her Fantasy's Bar & Grill Series with the new spin off, Fantasy Isle.  Steamy hot passion, men that make your mouth water, and adventures so sensual you'll be craving a reservation of your own.

Music Review - Journey and Def Leppard 2018 at the BJCC

Journey and Def Leppard rocked down the house in Birmingham last night with a performance that kept the crowd on their feet.  Arnel Pineda, with powerhouse vocals and an unstoppable energy, kicked off the night as Journey’s lead singer.  Neal Schon amazed the crowd with incredible guitar licks and his solo was one of the most impressive of the evening.   Ross Valory, Jonathan Cain and Steve Smith performed like the rock gods they were and the energy in the packed Legacy Arena was charged from beginning.  It was a nonstop two-hour journey into musical nirvana.  The only hiccup came from the sound guys who overdid the bass, but it was so minor it didn’t take away from the show.

After a brief intermission, Def Leppard took the stage to a standing ovation and put on one of the most amazing laser lights shows along with performances that proved they still had the power to hypnotize the crowd with their musical talent.  Joe Elliot, lead singer, was even more dynamic than when I saw him in the 80’s and like a fine wine he’s vocals have aged to perfection.  Rick Allen, drummer, brought the audience to their knees with his stunning drum solo, still a crowd favorite.  Phil Collen’s energy was off the charts, as he ripped notes on his guitar.   Rick Savage on bass guitar was just as amazing and showed that he still has the talent to bring down a house.  Vivian Campbell was incredible rounding out this powerhouse band that can still pull a crowd to their feet.  

It was a concert worthy of any rock lovers time.  Five stars from Tears of Crimson, and if they come back next year to Birmingham, Alabama I’ll be seeing them again.  On a personal note it was my daughter’s first live concert, and I couldn’t have asked for a better one to show her how a show was supposed to be done.  Rock on folks, and make sure to pick up tickets for this show if you’re looking for a night of entertainment!

Michelle & Kayla Before the Concert

It was a great walk in the rain before we made it into the Legacy concert hall at the BJCC in Birmingham, Alabama, and worth every second.  Somehow my daughter managed to look like a supermodel, and I was more of drowned rat, but what can I say?  I raise great kids.  When we first arrived the crowd was building outside to the point where people were waiting around the corner to gain entry.  Those empty seats behind us, didn't stay empty long, and I don't know if the show sold out but it was packed to the point where it seemed like it.  During intermission, it was like being a sardine in a can as you tried to get refreshments, but that was all part of the thrill.  I'd like to say thank you to the BJCC, Journey, and Def Leppard for a night me or my daughter won't soon forget! 

Destination Fantasy Isle

I'm excited to announce the upcoming release of Forbidden, the first book in the new series, Fantasy Isle.  This is a spin off of my bestselling series, Fantasy's Bar & Grill.  Release date (tentatively) will be September 15th.  Our voyage will take you to a place where adults can live out their wildest sexual fantasies and discover ones they didn't know they had.  Those gorgeous men you fell in love with, Miles, Leif, and Leon, from Fantasy's, return to make your dreams come true.  After a devastating loss, Miles returned to New York leaving Leif and Leon on the island to raise the twins.  The beauty that started this adventure, Zoey,  finds a way to bring these three friends back together again, hoping to heal the pain that they've suffered after their world was turned upside down.

Blurb:  One down on her luck princess, is offered the chance to save her mother from being homeless after Alzheimer's destroys her career and their savings.  Four years of struggling, and Faith has run out of options until Fantasy's offers her the chance to settle all their financial debts.  Barely legal, but filled with more heart than women twice her age, she makes the decision to sell the only thing she has left.  Her innocence.

(Miles) She's too young to make a decision like this, but from the moment I meet her, I know that none of that matters.  This angel has given up her life to take care of her mother, and there's no way I can let her walk away.  I wouldn't trust her virginity to anyone else, and I'm not sure if it's because I'm selfish and I want her for myself, or I'm worried that no one could take care of her that way I will.  Either way, she's mine even if she doesn't know it yet.

(Faith) He's a beautiful red-headed god and I know he's only doing this out of pity, but from the moment we meet, I'm already seduced.  I didn't expect him to be so kind, or to feel so much for someone I just met.  My biggest fear is that once this is over, I'll never forget the man I sold my body too.  I'm doing this for my mother, but I can't deny I want to know what it's like to be loved by him.  Selling my soul might be the cost of accepting this gift, and if so I'll gladly pay the price.

All About the Diamond Romance Series - Naomi Springthorp

Can her baseball fantasy become reality, or will she strike out at love?
Rick Seno is a sexy warrior behind the plate in his catcher’s gear. In control and calling the game for the San Diego Seals. He’d show me the same attention in my bed, if he was more than my imaginary baseball boyfriend.
I’ve worn a Seno jersey to every game since Rick became a big leaguer. It’s silly. I’m almost a decade older than him. I don’t compare to the flawless baseball skanks who wait for him at the player’s garage.
But, what am I supposed to do when the All-Star of my dreams invites me out after a game?
I can’t believe he wants me. Until tonight, I was completely content with my life. Now, I’m caught off base and I’m not sure I can make it home safe.

You have to take risks if you want to win.

Rick Seno was my fantasy baseball boyfriend for years. In real life, he’s more than I imagined he could be. 

I love him. He changed my life. I still left him.

Rick did everything he could to get me back. He never gave up on me.

Now, I won’t leave him again.

I love how Rick defends me. I wish it wasn’t on the field, protecting me instead of home plate. It had my heart pounding. It was hot to have my own major leaguer fight for me.

Time on suspension could be a reward or a punishment. Will it break us? It might be exactly what my king and I need.

My baseball fantasy came true.

For the next two weeks, I get to have him all to myself in my favorite place.

I love Hawaii. The North Shore has always felt like home.

Relaxed Rick with a tropical tan. Shaggy and unshaven. Days without putting a shirt on. His strong chest and abs exposed.

But, when our vacation turns into more, it’s life changing.

I want to give him everything. All he wants is me.

I'm a born and raised Southern California Girl that lives for music and baseball. My world has a soundtrack and I spend half of each year cheering for my favorite team. My hubs and I have three spoiled feline fur babies who allow us to share their living space. 

I started writing romance a couple years ago on a Sunday morning. I didn't have a choice. I woke up in the middle of a dream and everything around me was, well, just off. I couldn't help myself. I started writing on the spot and then closed the file wondering what the hell I was doing. A week later, I went back and read it. A month later, I had a rough draft for The Sweet Spot. I haven't stopped writing since, unless I'm editing or watching a baseball game.

Blessed (The Matawapit Family Series Book 1) - Maggie Blackbird

It’s been ten years since Emery Matawapit sinned, having succumbed to temptation for the one thing in his life that felt right, another man. In six months he’ll make a life-changing decision that will bar him from sexual relationships for the rest of his life.

Darryl Keejik has a decade-long chip on his shoulder, and he holds Emery’s father, the church deacon, responsible for what he’s suffered: the loss of his family and a chance at true love with Emery. No longer a powerless kid, Darryl has influence within the community—maybe more than the deacon. Darryl intends on using his power to destroy Deacon Matawapit and his church.

Hoping to save the church, Emery races home. But stopping Darryl is harder than expected when their sizzling chemistry threatens to consume Emery. Now he is faced with the toughest decision of his life: please his devout parents and fulfill his call to the priesthood, or remain true to his heart and marry the man created for him.

This is very erotic book about a spiritual journey.


An Ojibway from Northwestern Ontario, Maggie resides in the country with her husband and their fur babies, two beautiful Alaskan Malamutes. When she’s not writing, she can be found pulling weeds in the flower beds, mowing the huge lawn, walking the Mals deep in the bush, teeing up a ball at the golf course, fishing in the boat for walleye, or sitting on the deck at her sister’s house, making more wonderful memories with the people she loves most.
