Title-Shaggy Maggie
By-Tyffani Clark Kemp

Publication Date- July 25th, 2013 

Harvey Young, rock star lead of the Scottish band Shaggy Maggie, has dreamed his whole life about the red-haired girl from the school bus that he bullied until she ran away. He's resigned himself to groupie fill-ins. There's no way he'll ever see her again. Why torture himself pining for his lost youth?
Magda Canady may be on the unlucky side, but her life is starting to work itself out. She's an editor for a New York Publishing company and her long-time lawyer boyfriend is taking her home to Scotland to meet the parents and his younger brother. But the trip holds more danger than she could have imagined. Between a psycho stalker and the boy who tortured her through high school, she might lose her mind - and her life - before it's all said and done.
When a chance encounter brings them together once more, it's the past, the present, and a little psychosis that may get in the way of the future that was always meant to be.

My Review: Have you ever started down one path only to realize halfway down it may be the wrong path? Have you ever looked at a complete stranger and something in you is so sure you know them? No, well you may have feelings like this after reading Shaggy Maggie. Magda Canady stuggles with this and a severe case of clumsiness. Then throw in a psycho stalker and you have the making of a great story! As I turned each page I was never at a point of wanting to not read further. Tyffani Clark Kemp writing style left no room for lulls or gaps. She definitely knows how to keep her readers interested and on the edge of their seat. I am very much intrigued to find out what awaits in the next installment of the Shaggy Maggie Band Series.

Title-Possess My Heart
Series-The Possess Saga Book # 3
By J.A. Howell

Publication Date- July 25th, 2013 

"You can't leave me because I'll only ever love you."

What was supposed to be a final goodbye turned into one last piece of unfinished business for Brody Walsh.

 As long as Aggie Walker's heart still belongs to him, he's destined to remain in limbo, watching over her.
But when her family decides to send her to Scotland for the summer and she meets Camden MacTavish, it seems despite their constant head-butting that there may be something more between them.

That is, if she is willing to let Camden in.

As Aggie finds herself torn between her lover lost and her lover anew, it becomes clear that she cannot hold on to both. If she decides to let Camden into her heart, she will have to let Brody go. And if she can't let Brody go, she risks losing Camden-and a second chance at love.

My Review: I found this book to be a light refreshing read. I laughed out loud at some of the antics that went on throughout the story. J. A. Howell style of writing kept the story intriguing by using real everyday struggles and triumphs. We all struggle or have struggled with lost love and new love but some how Miss Howell was able to make it come alive and dance across the pages of Possess My Heart and show us all over again how exciting and fun and sometimes tearful all of that can be. 
Aggie Walker is no different She has to decide to either let go of love lost or never love again. As Aggie travels down this path she discovers that sometimes things are not always as they seem if only she would open her heart again she may find love anew staring right back at her. Will she let go of  what is lost and open up to something new or will she walk away never knowing what could be? I won't tell you the answer to that question as you will have to read for yourself. I can assure you it's worth the picking up a copy to find out.
