Kindle Worlds is Closing! Here are some of my favorite worlds and Authors within them!


Kindle Worlds will be gone forever
July 16th 2018!

This deeply saddens me, I have found many new to me authors by seeing them in these worlds.

It was always a place to find quick, inexpensive reads that blended with another author’s characters and settings.

I have heard that some of the World owners are going to continue them on their own and some will need to have an acknowledgement of the originating series before republishing. Yet others may go away completely. For some worlds no decisions have made as to their fate, as this news just broke.

This is a response to a reader friend from Amazon:

For five years, Kindle Worlds has been thriving, engaging writers and readers who enjoy writing in one another’s worlds, and we’re proud of the work we’ve done together. While we are closing Kindle Worlds, Amazon is constantly innovating on behalf of our authors and readers, and we look forward to continuing to do so.

As of May 17th, Kindle Worlds will no longer be accepting new submissions. Previously published Kindle Worlds stories will no longer be available for sale on Amazon.com on or around July 16th. The Kindle Worlds website will be closed on August 29th.

Rest assured previously purchased or borrowed Kindle Worlds stories will remain unaffected.

With that in mind and since the time is short until they are gone, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Worlds and Authors from them. I hope you will take the time to browse through these links and possibly enjoy them as much as I have.

I put the link I have for the main world and then covers that link to Amazon for individual authors within those worlds that I have read and enjoyed.

I would also like to thank the owners of the worlds that so many wonderful authors wanted to play in, Elle James, Susan Stoker, Paige Tyler, Desiree Holt, Sable Hunter, Millie Taiden, Carly Phillips, Robyn Peterman, Cat Johnson, Eliza Gayle, Erin Nicholas, and Roxanne St.Claire.

Happy New Year 2017!


As we enter this New Year, I want to thank all the Authors, Publishers and Publicity Groups that have contributed to my blog in 2016. Not only in ARCs but also in recommendations of new authors.

I look forward to reading and reviewing many new books this year. Some by new authors and others by authors I have come to love.

Each new book I read is a journey to a new adventure, a new love and new experiences for the heroes and heroines.

Thank You All For Your Love and Support!
Much Love,
Carol LaGatta

Summer My Review

Picking up a runaway bride was the last thing Shade expected to do on his way to Texas. The worst part was he knew who she was and she is way out of his league.

Vivian is a Chicago heiress, on the run from her almost husband who is shadier than she could ever imagine. Shade knew but played along at least for a while.

I don’t know which I giggled at more, her first visit to Walmart or to a Waffle House. I think the Waffle House, so here’s a favorite scene.

He chuckled and turned into a Waffle House. “This work for you?”

She rubbed her hands together. “Oh yay. I’ve always wanted to eat at one of these.”

At first, he thought she was making fun of his favorite breakfast spot, but then she hopped from the car with a, “Hurry up.”

He followed her into the small diner, her unconventional outfit of his shirt, sweat pants, and her white heels barely drawing notice at this hour and in this place. But she did need something else to wear. A little farther down the road was a Walmart. She’d probably never even been inside a Walmart.

She’d found a table overlooking the grill. “Do you mind? I want to watch.”

He slid in across from her. “Nope. What are you eating?”

“I don’t know.” There was a sparkle in her eyes he’d never noticed. She looked… well, happy, if the wide smile on her face was any indication.

“Surely you’ve eaten at Waffle House before?”

“Never.” Her voice held a tinge of excitement. “I’ve always wanted to. What’s good?”

“Hmm, waffles,” he suggested.

The responding laugh came from deep in her gut. He knew because he felt it all the way down in his.

She ordered a waffle with pecans, coffee, orange juice, bacon and hash browns with cheese. He told the waitress to bring him the same.

“There is no way you can eat all that,” he said. “You got a hollow leg?”

“You just hide and watch me. I love food like this and I never get to eat any.”

The waitress set two coffees and two juices on the table.

“Why?” he said before taking a sip of his coffee.

“Why what?”

“Why don’t you ever get food like this?”

“Oh, my parents would die. And Cook’s feelings would be hurt if she found out.” And then, as if realizing what she’d said, her gaze dropped to the table. “I mean, Mom’s feelings would be hurt if I didn’t eat what she cooked.”

She was the worst liar ever.
D’Alba, Cynthia. Hell Yeah!: Cadillac Cowboy (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Kindle Locations 390-410). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.

A delightful journey from Chicago to Texas, meeting his family on the way. Some anxious moments wondering about the ex, and her parents. Topped of with sizzling sex and lots of fun.
