sunday spotlight



I’m doing something a little different for today’s Sunday Spotlight. Instead of spotlighting a particular book or author, I’m spotlighting an entire series, or more specifically, a new season of a series. The Corbin’s Bend Series is published in seasons, much the same way that television shows are aired In seasons. The original nine books were Season One.The following nine books were Season Two, which ended in January.(My book, Learning to Live Again, was the final book in Season Two) Today, I’m spotlighting Season Three, which is coming in April.





His Damsel in Distress
Author: Thianna D
Release Date: Apr 23, 2015
You’ve known the name Corbin’s Bend for awhile – now meet the man it was named after.


Corbin Nelson had stayed in New York with his non-spanko wife when all of his friends built and moved to Colorado. With his reason for staying in the city gone, and his trust ripped to shreds, he moved to Corbin’s Bend to make a new start. His one rule: he would never give his heart away again. It only took a couple weeks for him to question that tenet when he rescued the same damsel in distress twice.


Zinnia Loraine bought into Corbin’s Bend to hide: from the paparazzi, a scandal, and most of all from a deranged fan. She thought she could hide in her home and stay safe and secure. When her car broke down and she was rescued by Corbin, all thoughts of hiding fled as she was instantly attracted to the tall, middle-aged man. That he was an alpha male who spanked and loved curvy women just made it even better.


Unable to keep their hands off one another after their first date, they both were in this for fun… until her stalker found her and they both realized how much they cared for one another. With his damsel in distress once again, this time Corbin had to call on others to help him. Would he and Zinnia get their happily ever after? Or would his rescuing days be through? If the stalker had his way, their happiness was about to end.
