I have a number of friends who have recently had books released. I thought it might be nice to showcase them, particularly as covid life has meant many of us have more reading time. If you’re looking for something new, maybe one of my friends will have something to your taste.
My first author friend is Leisl Leighton. Leisl writes in two different genres: romantic suspense and paranormal romance, but her most recent release is a romantic suspense.
Blazing Fear is the second in the CoalCliff Stud series, although you can read it without having read #1 (although I highly recommend the first book, Climbing Fear).

A Coalcliff Stud novel – Fire stole his past – now it is threatening to burn everything, and everyone, he loves. All over again …
Flynn Findlay likes everyone to think he’s in control, but the death of his wife during the bushfires six years ago changed everything. Now, even though it feels like a betrayal, Flynn can’t seem to escape his growing feelings for the beautiful new doctor in town. He’s never felt as truly alive as when he is with Prita – even his fear of fire doesn’t seem as bad.
Dr Prita Brennan is ready for a fresh start in Wilson’s Bend with her adoptive son, far from her overprotective family. It would be perfect, except some of the locals don’t like the changes she’s making to the practice. One of them is even making harassing calls. The handsome local horse stud owner, Flynn, is a further complication she doesn’t need right now.
But when harassment escalates to arson, to save the horse stud and their children, Flynn and Prita must work together to figure out who is after her – and why they are trying to burn to the ground everything she touches.
If paranormal is more your thing, Leisl’s Packbound series might be right up your alley:
Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as The Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand new world. But the Darkness was not destroyed.
