Want 3 HEAs for only $3.99?

I feel like it's been FOREVER and a day since I wrote a blog post, but really it's only been about six weeks--LOL. How are you? Who's ready for summer? I have some great bookish things to share with you today that might perk up your summer reading!

When I realized that May was Military Appreciation Month, I hustled my butt off to finish the formatting for The Anchor Novel Box Set – The Military Bros. I wanted to give you these 3 HEA military stories on sale as a way of showing my love for everyone who serves and their families.

And guess what? It’s LIVE today!!! Woot, woot! You can get the 1st three books in the series + a first-time ever novella, The Hurricane, for $3.99 (or similar) worldwide on Amazon today and for the rest of May!

Here are some reviews for the Anchor Novels that made me giddy. I’m not sure I’ll ever really get used to people saying nice things about my books. Plus, it still feels weird to be all "braggy" about it, but I know it's important to share them, so here they are a few that I love:

Amazon Bestselling Author, Jami Albright, says, “Guarded Dreams is a lovely, lyrical, and moving second chance romance that sucked me in and refused to let go until I was wholly in love with Eli and Ava. LJ Evans has written a beautiful story that will steal your heart, and make you believe in love that lasts forever."

  • “You will laugh, sniffle, swoon and fall in love with all the characters.” – Goodreads Reviewer

  • “Poignant and utterly breathtaking!” – BookBub Reviewer

  • “Sweet moments makes this the perfect summer read.” – Amazon Reviewer

  • “Beautifully written, emotional, sexy!" – Angela's Book Addiction

  • "Be prepared to be swept away!" ―Amazon Reviewer

Spending more time with Eli, Mac, and Truck and their HEAs made me reallllly nostalgic. Like sad, but in a good way. Because I didn’t realize how much I missed these characters. I sort of wish I could bring them to life in my real world. I’m more Eli’s mom’s age than theirs, but I think I’d like to be able to “mother” them all a little bit. And I know my hubby would love to tap brewskies together with the guys. Is there a book character you’d like to meet in real life?

Anywho, I reread all their stories, and then I wrote the short novella just for the box set. It's called THE HURRICANE and takes a look at all three of the BFFs and their wives eighteen years after they first met in Guarded Dreams.

This sale includes three slow-burn, sizzling, military romances plus an exclusive novella. They’re heartfelt beach reads full of love, sacrifice, and family. The perfect book boyfriends to kick off your summer.

“The energy was coming off of her in waves, like an undertow,

and I was going down.”

Inside the box set:

GUARDED DREAMS ― a second-chance, military romance. Eli’s chasing a dream of the Coast Guard that he’s determined to make his, no matter the consequences. He isn’t looking for love, but when the free-spirited singer, Ava, breezes into his world, he finds himself changing his tune.

FORGED BY SACRIFICE ― a slow-burn, political romance. Mac is determined to change the world. A life in politics is his future. The dream of a law degree Georgie once gave up is finally in reach. When they're given an unexpected chance at love, they can’t deny it. But will her family’s past make his future an impossibility?

AVENGED BY LOVE ― a fake-marriage, military romance. Travis is focused on two things: his Coast Guard career and his brother's future. Everything changes once the beautiful, comic-loving Jersey crashes into his world, needing more help than he knows how to give. A marriage of convenience seems like the only solution. But what happens when convenience turns to love?

THE HURRICANE ― bonus novella. Catch up with Eli, Mac, Truck, and their wives eighteen years after the gang first met in Guarded Dreams. This stunning bonus story shows the true meaning of family, sacrifice, and love as the gang gathers to help Eli and Ava rebuild.

The Anchor Novels from award-winning author, LJ Evans, are HEA, military romances about true friends, real "family", and the dreams we reshape as we go through this wild ride called life. With vivid, endearing characters, these books just might carve out a special spot in your heart and then stay there forever.

Okay...I have one last thing to tell you about my summer books!

CHARMING AND THE CHERRY BLOSSOM has a release date, a book description, and the cover is coming on June 4th! This book makes me soooooo giddy happy that it's hard for me to talk about it with a straight face. It is literally my favorite thing I've ever written. EVER! If you're a blogger or a bookstagrammer, you should totalllly sign up for the ARC/Release Tour.

The book has:

👩‍🎓 Old-soul college students

👑 A surprise inheritance

🏡Small town

🧚‍♀‍ Magical Realism

💘 Complete standalone

Book Description:

Today was a fairy tale…

I inherited a fortune from a dad I never knew,

And a thoroughly charming guy asked me out.

Unfortunately, my fairy tale could disappear in ninety days...

Because there’s an impossible task to complete,

And a greedy cousin plotting against me.

Plus, I’m not your typical fairy tale princess.

I have a secret that might send my charming running,

And threatens my future if the press finds out.

If today was a fairy tale…

Why does my happily ever after look so far out of reach?

From award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes a contemporary romance filled with all the magic, hope, and love of a fairy tale plus the small-town, old-soul vibe her fans adore. Inspired by Taylor Swift’s “Today Was a Fairytale,” this slow-burn romance is pure escapism.

A full-length, standalone adult romance.

I want to add Charming and the Cherry Blossom to my TBR

I'm a blogger and want to sign up for Charming and the Cherry Blossom Release Event

As we're a week away from the Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S., I just want to say THANK YOU to those serving in the armed forces (and their families)! To those who have lost someone in the line of duty, I’m sending huge hugs and hoping that you’re surrounded by people who will hold you up. I may not support all the decisions and actions our country has made in the past (or the present), but I’m grateful to those who protected the freedoms we do have with honor and heart. Thank you for risking everything for us.

That's it for me today. I hope you have a beautiful weekend full of books, love, and happiness!

Happy Reading and Stay Safe Out There!
