Melanie Moreland ~ Sunshine & Sammy ~ Release Blitz / Teasers / ARC Review




Sunshine and Sammy by Melanie Moreland is NOW LIVE!







Sunshine & Sammy sneaks up on the soul with a force that can only be described as breathtaking. ~Goodreads Review 🥰



Luke Adler lives for his ranch. It’s the only reason he agreed to get on board with his sister’s grand plan for guests staying on the property.


Nothing prepares him for the force of nature that is Samantha Morrison. When she arrives on his ranch to help construct this new part of his business, what he expects and what he gets are two entirely different things.


He expects a no-nonsense businessman. Straightforward and simple.


What he gets is a sunshine smile, sweet sass, and a woman who pushes every button and boundary he has.


He tries to ignore the draw, the urges she makes him feel. But when she gets close, he only wants her closer.


She makes him question his decisions, his thoughts, and the idea that being alone is best for him.


Even when they are consumed by the fire between them, he knows they come from two different worlds and he has to let her go.


But when the time comes, can he do that?

Can he live without her sunshine to warm his cold heart?

Or can this cowboy learn a new trick?


Author’s Note: Heat and heart fills the pages as our heroine learns to ride a horse and tame a grumpy cowboy in rural Alberta.

My ARC Review:

Another stunning book from Melanie and the fifth book in this Vested Interest: ABC Corp, this wonderful big family you just want to be a part of, and this book is no exception – all the feels with a grumpy hot cowboy not looking for love especially not with a hot feisty woman who never listens!

If you’ve read any of these wonderful books you will know that Sammy is Van’s adopted daughter, having been brought up and loved by the big extended family around her, she is well equipped in more ways than one to handle whatever life throws her way. She has made a highly successful business and name for herself by helping small businesses and looking for ways to help them improve and expand, making a project out of it and then making a tv show from it. She’s excited to be going to her latest project, the River Rock Ranch – a beef cattle farm that needs to come up with other ways to help sustain them with the way the world is looking at meat vs vegetarian. Sammy is looking forward to helping them out whether a Cowboy Experience is what’s best for them.

Luke is Rachel’s older brother, who has spent his whole life on the Ranch, it’s his everything now, after two failed relationships and being hurt very badly, he is resigned to the bachelor life and doing what’s best for his Ranch. He’s not too sure about the plans Rachel has for his Ranch, but he wants to make her happy and knows they need to make more money, so has agreed to let this Sam person come and see what’s what on his Ranch, but is not expecting anything to come of it. He was also expecting Sam to be a man, not the hot, beautiful, infuriating, feisty woman that shows up!

Oh my word – the feels, the chemistry, the ranch life, the spectacular scenery, the banter, the push and pull, the spectacularly hot steamy scenes – certainly makes me want to try the Cowboy Experience myself!! I loved it, these two were just made for each other, their banter and wit were just awesome. Luke is very growly, running hot and cold, yet jealous, possessive, and ultra-caring – he’s giving himself whiplash with being unable to stay away from Sammy yet wanting to put distance between them. Sammy loves the Ranch life and how she feels when she is there, especially with her grumpy cowboy – she knows this life is only for a short space of time, they are worlds apart in their real life but can’t help but wonder what staying would feel like.

Loved it completely, with another fantastic epilogue that Melanie is renowned for, this was a fantastic addition to the series and is not to be missed.




Meet Melanie:


New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of thirty-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
