PARK AVENUE PLAYER IS LIVE!
A Standalone Contemporary Romance
New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
It started out like any normal day.
Then the fender bender happened.
The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.
Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about.
Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident.
Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.
The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.
So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance.
To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece.
At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed.
But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.)
We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened.
This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?
Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs.
Ours was one I didn’t see coming.
I have one word for you and it is..-
and I am laughing so hard … really SO SO hard…
and I am not sorry at all….. and the story is not really funny – no it is actually rather sad.
Am I not making sense? Well I suppose I am not … but rest assured if you loved previous books of the authors duo Ward/Keeland – well than you are going to love “Park Avenue Player” as well.
I had the pleasure of meeting Vi Keeland in London last Saturday and where I might have been guessing before I am now pretty sure I know which parts of the books she is writing.
Park Avenue Player is the perfect next book in their series with wonderful characters and I enjoyed every second. If our beloved Mary Poppins would have a 2.0 Version – it could be found in this book.
Practically imperfect but perfect for this story.
I must admit that was suspicious of a certain something and it turned out I was right – so to me guessing “it” (sorry being un-spoiler-ish vague on purpose) was not as difficult as it was in other previous books – but on the other hand … the results in the other books were not as devastating as here… #sniff (Enough said)
The thing is I cannot say much more about the story and Vi’s/ Penelope’s writing is so good that even that leaves nothing left to say except “You will love this book”
They always manage to bring together characters that should not work well with each other but somehow with their magic they make it seem effortless when all the puzzle pieces come together. And in-between a (in this specific book) rather sad story you find sparks of laughter as well as deep insights into the characters. As a reader you feel like you are being picked up personally – handed the book and it’s like the authors hold your hand while reading.
It’s like you can feel the intensity the authors had while writing the plot
… Oh and I just remembered I have another word I just remembered …
Underwear and I am looking at Penelope when I say that …… (that one word should be enough when you read a certain book from her #laughing)

#1 Love Block
Pippa just showed up uninvited with plans of staying the weekend.
I can hardly handle an hour with her, let alone two days.
Despite more than a year of dodging her, nothing has changed.
She’s the only woman I want.
Smart and sexy and bold.
My best friend’s little sister.
Denying my desire for her is torture.
And she doesn’t make it easy; she wants me too.
The thing is, making her mine means ruining my best friend.
#2 Love Lock
Drew Hayes just showed up on my doorstep.
My best friend’s older brother. The love of my life. My ex.
He dumped me five years ago.
I moved on. Got married.
But when I tell him to leave, he does the opposite.
He storms into my life.
Tears down my walls.
Demands the one thing I won’t ever give him again.
He’s my past.
Yet every time I look into his eyes, I see my future.
What happens in Oasis, stays at Oasis…or does it?
“Everyone needs to read this book. ”
– Harloe Rae, USA Today bestselling author.
Broken Knight, an all new standalone about first loves, betrayal and loss from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is available now!
Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending.
Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower.
Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language.
Who taught her how to laugh.
Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero.
This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna.
But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore.
When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes.
Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy.

Right now I wanted to just be here in silence with my best friend. And somehow, I don’t know how, but Luna sensed it. So we sat there for what felt like two hours but was probably a lot less, until I opened my eyes again. Her eyes were closed, too. I watched her for a while.
When she opened her eyes, it felt like she took something away from me.
“Let’s jump,” she said.
“I’m quite fond of my limbs, Moonshine.”
“Stop being such a big baby.”
“Big, quarterback baby who just finished a football season in one piece and would like to keep all his body parts intact.”
She crawled out of the treehouse and settled on the branch. It was thick, but I doubted it could carry my muscular ass for more than a few seconds before snapping. I rolled my eyes and settled next to her. She slipped her hand in mine.
“Three, two, one.”
It was a short, sweet way down.

Olivia is still addicted to the taste of his kisses, but can she give him her heart again? Years of hurt and mistrust are not easily erased and threaten to tear them apart once more.

Series: The not so saintly sisters #2
Miss Olivia Redfield labors under no misapprehension that anything other than spinsterhood lies in her future. Not for lack of dowry, or breeding, or education, but because of one tiny flaw…. one might even call it… a curse. Removed from society for this ill-fated defect, she’s resigned herself to caring for others in a somewhat dreary existence. Until, that is, she falls for the charming but unattainable, Lord Kingsley.
TOO MUCH TIME ON HIS HANDS…
Gabriel Fellowes, Earl of Kingsley is doing a favor for a friend by overseeing the dangerous–– but promising––mine on the border of Viscount Hallowell’s property. With time to spare, he finds himself irresistibly intrigued by the viscount’s daughter, Miss Olivia Redfield, and delights himself in their mutual provocation. In no position to promise more than a dalliance, but unable to stay away, Gabriel takes the unprecedented step of befriending a woman.
IS FRIENDSHIP EVEN POSSIBLE…?
Their flirtatious attachment threatens to erupt in passion, but duty and honor forbid anything more. Will love be defeated when tragedy strikes, or can Olivia and Gabriel overcome Society’s dictates and put the notion of Olivia’s curse to rest once and for all?
Nominated for the prestigious 2019 RITA® Historical Romance Award, Annabelle Anders writes the stories that will make you swoon…
Married to the same man for over 25 years, She is a mother to
three children and two Miniature Wiener dogs
After owning a business and experiencing considerable success, She and her husband got caught in the financial crisis and lost everything; their business, their home, even their car.
At this point, She put my B.A. in Poly Sci to use and took work as a waitress and bartender.
Unwilling to give up on a professional life, she simultaneously went back to college and obtained a degree in Energy Management.
And then the energy market dropped off.
And then her dog died.
We can only be grateful for this series of unfortunate events, for, with nothing to lose and completely demoralized, she sat down and began to write the romance novels which had until then, existed only in her imagination.
She is happy to have found her place in life.
Finally fed up, Liz chose the wrong night to confront Mickey when she accidentally witnesses him committing a murder. After a terrifying escort home, she escapes, only making it a few states away before her car breaks down. Luckily for her when it does, she ends up with help from the Cole’s.
Nate Cole is done with undercover work and was planning to quit after his last assignment. Unfortunately, his boss has other plans for one of his best agents, one last case before he turns in his badge. Nate begrudgingly agrees to look it over but doesn’t get a chance to turn it down before it lands in his lap, in the form of Liz in his kitchen.
Nate knows he needs to help Liz and close this case, but can he keep his feelings out of it and keep her safe?
