La Patron

by: Ceado Mile Failte

She was the Goddess and she gave him a mission

He would accept this task without hesitation

The Goddess gave him her blessing and full support

And handpicked the only true one as his consort

He was as imperious as a man could be

In upholding the standards of the old decree

So when someone or something quietly changed the rules

He reacts fearless and gathers required tools

She was the one promised to him by the Goddess

An unsurpassable treasure trove of promise

Whatever he needs she would without doubt provide

They’d live together and rule the world side by side

The mating call was answered and wishes fulfilled

Their first litter of pups left him angry, but thrilled

Her life was stirring and spiraled out of control

But they found their love was strong and learned to console

When the enlarged wolves den grew stronger and stronger

She realizes she’s not weak any longer

Their combined forces take on the mighty challenge

And with the help of the Goddess they find balance

They want the entire nation to celebrate

That the great gift from the Goddess will dedicate

Their reign in providing harmony and unity

And love and commitment for the community

THE TROUBLE WITH MURDER
by
Kathy Krevat
Genre:
Cozy Mystery

 

Pub
Date: 12/12/17

 

 

Single mom and gourmet cat food
entrepreneur Colbie Summers thought she’d escaped her tiny
California hometown forever. But when her father needs her, she packs
up her adolescent son, their finicky feline, Trouble, and her budding
business. She knows change is tough—but she doesn’t expect it to
be murder . . .
Between dealing with her newly rural
life, her grumpy, sports-obsessed father, and preparing to showcase
her products in the local Sunnyside Power Mom’s trade show, Colbie
has more on her plate than she bargained for. Luckily, she has her
official taste-tester, Trouble, by her side to vet her
Meow-io Batali Gourmet Cat Food line.
Things look promising—until one of the Power Moms is found
dead—with an engraved Meow-io specialty knife buried in her chest.
As the prime suspect, Colbie needs
paws on the ground to smoke out who had means, motive, and
opportunity among the networking mothers—including a
husband-stealing Sofia Vergara lookalike. And the cat’s still not
out of the bag when a second violent death rocks the bucolic
community. Trouble may have nine lives, but Colbie’s only got one
to clear her name and stop a killer from pulling off the purr-fect
crime . . .
A California
native, Kathy Krevat has written three bestselling books involving
one of her favorite things: chocolate. She is looking forward to
changing to her next favorite thing—cats—for her new series set

From
the earliest age I was a born storyteller. Ask my parents and they
will tell you I had a gift for making a simple event seem like an
elaborate one. Purposely? No. Innocently? Yes. It was my imaginary
world that initially led me to believe I wanted to be an actor. All
of that role playing and living in fantasy… it was an obvious
direction for me. However, becoming quite uncomfortable with the
limelight quickly saw that dream diminish. Over the years I turned my
world of fantasy into stories, and eventually began writing them
down. Before I knew it, ‘Cut’ had been completed. When I am not busy
writing my next story, I am a working mum, housewife and sometimes
hockey wag 🙂 In other words, probably some kind of circus act who
specialises in juggling 😉 I hope you enjoy my blog, where I will be
posting thoughts, other books I am currently reading and even sneak
peeks of my novels. I encourage any feedback, comments or direct
messages via my contact page should anyone wish to get in touch. I am
so thrilled to be sharing my journey and hope you enjoy my stories as
much as I enjoy writing them. Dream often. Believe always.

While
growing up, going to libraries felt like an adventure filled with mystery and
wonder to Debra. The hushed tones invoked secrets, and the dusty, sometimes
moldy scent of paper smelled like perfume. Leaving the library with just a
single book never happened. Years later, her love of reading turned to passion
for writing. Debra’s an award-winning artist who lives in southern Arizona
where the average summer temperatures are truly hot enough to fry an egg on the

My Review:

This is a great romance with a touch of mystery, death and new beginnings. Anna is set to find her husband’s murderer, although everyone thinks it was just an accident. All turns upside down when she is arrested for selling drugs. Thus she meets a cute detective and finds out that her father, the judge, has been keeping both eyes on her and her life for the past year.

When she is shot and admitted to the hospital, her father takes over and brings her to his house where she can’t get in contact with the cute detective who has helped her in many things lately. Now being separated from each other doesn’t set well with Lee and he is going to break her out.

A Strange Twist of Fate by Author Debra Erfert, is a interesting tale full of surprises, twists, romance and happy endings. The characters are charming, deadly and schizophrenic. Over all it is a great story, recommended to anyone who likes some romance with their mystery. This is a clean romance.

A college professor is blackmailed by a student…DR. Vampyre

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017
Dr.
Vampyre
by
S.N. McKibben
Genre:
Paranormal Romance
 
When
a college professor is blackmailed by a student …
he
has to walk the fine line of being true to his principles and not
letting his bloody secret out.
Dr.
John Tennison, professor and physician, wakes up every morning and
counts his spoons—a measure of how many tasks he feels he can
accomplish during his day. One spoon to walk down the stairs, one
spoon to teach a class, one spoon to deal with tardy students. Lupus
limits him, but he still gives lectures and works at a hospital. He
also makes time for friends, and once a week visits Sanguine Loon’s
to sate—or subvert—his one strange desire. His nemesis, the one
thing besides lupus that keeps him from leading a normal life, is the
blood at the bottom of a little paper Dixie cup.
While
Tennison’s blood-drinking habit is a secret, it’s well known that
he’s the campus asshole and has no tolerance for students who show
up late. When he kicks Vogue model Ylati Badashi out of his lecture
hall for wandering in ten minutes late, she’s having none of it.
She pouts, she seduces, she blackmails, and puts Tennison at odds
with his butler, and finally she tells him the truth about why she
needs to be in his class.
Tennison
is a man of principles, and though he swears he won’t change his
mind, he starts to react unexpectedly to Ylati even as he hates her
for making him suspicious of his trusted butler. Tennison has to find
out where Mitch goes on his nights off and must deal with a budding
attraction to a woman he occasionally hates, all while learning new
secrets about himself. It’s going to take a lot of spoons.

THE SWEETHEART MYSTERY
by Cheryl Ann Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 11/14/2017

Book Blurb:
Harper Jane Evans is so over pro cheerleading but she’s not quite ready for prison. Good thing she’s got a badass ex-boyfriend ready to go to bat for her.

Sure, Harper made a few unsavory threats against her team’s manager—she’d had a few drinks and she despised the skimpy uniform he expected her to wear. That didn’t mean she wanted him dead. But when the sleazy dude is found murdered in his tighty whiteys, Harper is the number one suspect—and former FBI agent Noah Slade is the one man who can help. Too bad she once told Noah she never wanted to see him again.

Noah may have done a number on Harper’s heart all those years ago, but he’s determined to do right by her now. Yet the fiery beauty isn’t the only demon from his past, which makes hunting down a murderer by her side . . . complicated—never mind the powerful attraction still pulsing between them. Good thing he’s willing to do just about anything to keep from losing Harper again. And an old love just might bring her a new career—assuming she can stay out of jail.

Once aboard, James comes face to face with a pirate boy who is in reality fierce, desperate—and gorgeous—Samantha Christian, on the run from a sadistic Virginia plantation owner. With her identity unbound, the good captain dutifully takes her under his personal command, whereupon decorum goes out the porthole. But while his heart is lost to Samantha by the time they reach England, her noose still awaits. Now James’s sense of duty will be severely tested. As for Samantha, she has a plan, and a duty, of her own . . .
 

Let’s Talk about Pirates!

Let’s start by dressing the part. Most pirates’ clothing was stolen from their prey. Captains picked the nicest and most fashionable garments so everyone would know, “Hey, look at me, I’m the Captain!” There are reports that captains fearing capture would rush below deck and change into something less fancy so they could blend into their crew and receive an easier punishment.

How about an earring? There are a host of reasons and theories regarding pirates wearing earrings. Some believe an earring marked the first time the sailor crossed the equator, or sailed the vicious waters around Cape Horn. Others claim that sailors believed precious metals pierced through their earlobes actually improved their eyesight. There is another theory that the gold and silver was to pay for their funerals. With their names and home ports engraved within the hoop, if they washed up on shore, their bodies could be sent home. And yet another reason for an earring is to hang waxed earplugs from in case you were a gunner and too close to those exploding cannons! Me…I just think they made those seafaring bad boys a bit more rakish.

There is some debate regarding eye patches. Yes, there’s evidence of pirates losing arms, legs, and eyes. But some believe that eye patches were worn so pirates could keep one eye adjusted to seeing in the dark found below deck. Black Beard had a wooden leg, but it wasn’t due to a 10lb. cannon ball removing his limb. It was due to diabetes. If a pirate lost a leg in battle, most times they never survived the injury, and it certainly ended their career. It is true that Captain James Hook did have an iron hook that replaced his missing hand, however. Here I thought that was only Peter Pan fiction!

Speaking of fiction… there is little evidence of anyone ‘walking the plank.’ If pirates want you tossed into the water, over the rail ye went! Of course, there were more gruesome forms of punishment. Flogging, marooning, keelhauling, and hanging…by various parts of your body…from the highest yardarm!

Also, there’s no record of a pirate having a parrot as a pet. Cats were common aboard ship to keep the mice and rat population at bay, (FYI…white cats were considered bad luck.) but parrots were seen more for the money they would bring than for a colorful shoulder accessory.

Not all pirates were cutthroats. In fact, they were fairly civilized. Rules were strictly followed regarding fighting amongst the crew, gambling onboard, compensation should you be wounded or killed. Everyone received a fair share according to rank and decisions were made by democratic vote. Stealing from a crewmember was a major no no.

There were ‘gentlemen’ pirates who were well known for treating their crews and captives well. Stede Bonnet was one of these gentlemen pirates. He was a wealthy plantation owner when he decided to buy his own ship and take to the sea. It’s rumored that a nagging wife was his motivation to become a pirate, or a mid-life crisis! Black Bart Roberts gave his musicians Sundays off.

Being a pirate was a decent way to make a living. In fact, a lot of sailors signed on to pirate crews because the Navy’s pay checks just didn’t go very far in the 1600’s. Long Ben Avery wasn’t a pirate for very long, but made the richest haul and retired less than a year after he started. And speaking of richest treasures, it is said, Oliver Levasseur had treasure estimated into the billions. When he was captured and brought to be hung, he pulled a necklace from his neck and threw it into the crowd. It contained a cryptogram of 17 lines. He shouted “Find my treasure, the one who may understand it!” Treasure hunters are still trying to ‘understand’ it.

Some pirates were brutal, vicious barbarians, however. Black Beard used to stick lit lengths of rope under the brim of his hat so smoke would circle his head and his prey would believe he was possessed. Francis l’Olonnais cut out a prisoners heart and ate it in order to get the other prisoners to cooperate. His crew deserted soon after. There’s pirate crazy…then there’s pirate ‘l’Olonnais’ crazy!

And of course, I can’t possibly forget to mention all those incredible, bad-ass, ‘tough-as-hardtack’ women who fought as pirates throughout the golden age and beyond. Anne Bonney, Mary Read, Grace O’Malley, Rachel Wall (the only female pirate from New England—and the last pirate hung in Boston Common.), and my personal favorite, Ching Shih. Ching Shih was the most powerful of all pirate queens. After being pulled from a life of prostitution to marry, and her husband’s subsequent death a short three years later, Ching Shih became one of the most feared female pirates of her time. She terrorized the Chinese coast and amassed a huge fleet of more than a fifteen hundred ships and captained more than 70,000 men. She was very fond of beheadings, and deserters who just wouldn’t listen to reason…they saved their heads, but lost their ears!

I wonder what happened to all those earrings?

BEGINNER’S LUCK
by Kate Clayborn
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Pub Date: 10/31/2017
 
 
When three friends impulsively buy a
lottery ticket, they never suspect the many ways their lives will
change—or that for each of them, love will be the biggest win of
all.
Kit Averin is anything but a gambler. A
scientist with a quiet, steady job at a university, Kit’s focus has
always been maintaining the acceptable status quo. Being a sudden
millionaire doesn’t change that, with one exception: the
fixer-upper she plans to buy, her first and only real home. It’s
more than enough to keep her busy, until an unsettlingly handsome,
charming, and determined corporate recruiter shows up in her lab—and
manages to work his way into her heart . . .
Ben Tucker is surprised to find that the
scientist he wants for Beaumont Materials is a young woman—and a
beautiful, sharp-witted one at that. Talking her into a big-money
position with his firm is harder than he expects, but he’s willing
to put in the time, especially when sticking around for the summer
gives him a chance to reconnect with his dad. But the longer he
stays, the more questions he has about his own future—and who might
be in it.
What begins as a chilly rebuff soon heats up
into an attraction neither Kit nor Ben can deny—and finding
themselves lucky in love might just be priceless . . .

PUPPY LOVE
by Kelly Moran
Pub. Date: 2/28/2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny
of high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All she wants
is a little privacy and a quiet place to raise her autistic daughter,
Hailey. Redwood Ridge, Oregon, seems to offer all the right
ingredients. Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian.
The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his irresistible
allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps doing her favors. But the
well-meaning patrons of her new hometown have other ideas, and it
appears playing Cupid is one of them.
Cade O’Grady has never met a woman he
couldn’t handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office late one
night cradling an injured puppy, he’s struck stupid. Which might
explain her total lack of interest in him. But now that she’s
working for his family’s clinic, he doesn’t have to lust from a
distance. He might just have a chance at convincing Avery—and her
too-guarded heart—that falling for the right man isn’t a mistake .

Tad’s Treasure by Shanna Hatfield

Saturday, April 8th, 2017
I’ve been fascinated with the Victorian and
Edwardian eras, as well as the Old West as long as I can remember.
    Growing up on a farm in Eastern
Oregon where only the most determined and resolute individuals dare toil the
soil that spent centuries covered in sagebrush, rock, and the random juniper
tree, I never gave a thought to my great fortune in having a rural foundation
on which to build my future.
   All the crazy exploits I had as a
girlie-girl being raised as a tomboy came in handy when I began writing western
romances. You’d be surprised how many of the wild adventures in my stories are
based on things I either experienced or witnessed during my formative years.
   I joyfully bear the burden of being a
hopeless romantic, with a bit of sarcasm thrown in for good measure. I’ve
always been a sappy-hearted girl who loves a happy ending. I also love the western and rural way of life and that’s why I began writing sweet and clean western romances.
   Everything you never wanted to know
about me is posted with frequency on
my blog.
There you’ll discover I’m completely and entirely smitten with my husband,
lovingly referred to as Captain Cavedweller. You’ll also find that I eat too
much chocolate, have a thing for roses, like to play with my camera, and enjoy researching the towns and eras for my books

Tad Palmer makes a promise to his dying friend to watch over the man’s wife and
child. Years later, he continues to keep an eye on Posey Jacobs and her
precocious little boy. The only problem is that he’s not sure his heart can
withstand the vow he made when he falls in love with the widow and her son.

Posey Jacobs misses her beloved husband, but her wrenching grief has given way to
hope for the future as she finds herself falling deeper and deeper in love with
Tad Palmer. However, the infuriating man doesn’t seem to notice her interest
and treats her as he would his sister.

Throw in a goat who thinks she’s a dog, a town full of quirky characters, and this widow has her work cut out for her if she wants one handsome cowboy to give her his heart.

Mortified by her wayward thoughts, she straightened in her chair while
Tad smirked at her. “Just what, exactly, are you thinking?”
“Never mind,” she said, handing him the bowl of corn just to have
something to do.
Tad shook his head as he took the bowl from her and added a scoop of
corn to his plate. “You were thinking something that made you look as guilty as
all get out, Posey Jo. You better fess up.”
A warm, molten feeling began in the pit of her stomach. It worked its
way out to every extremity at his use of the name only he called her. Even John
had never called her Posey Jo.
Something about the way Tad said it, the way his voice seemed to caress
it, always left her languid and delighted. That name and the way it rolled off
his tongue gave her hope that he might care for her more than she knew.

Dredging up the Truth
Still recovering from tragedy and
grieving a devastating loss, Iraq war veteran and sheriff’s detective
Katrina Williams copes the only way she knows how—by immersing
herself in work. A body’s just been pulled from the lake with a fish
haul, but what seems like a straight-forward murder case over the
poaching of paddlefish for domestic caviar quickly becomes murkier
than the depths of the lake.
Soon a second body is found—an
illegal Peruvian refugee woman linked to a charismatic tent revival
preacher. But as Katrina tries to investigate the enigmatic
evangelist, she is blocked by antagonistic FBI agents and Army CID
personnel. When more young female refu-gees disappear, she must
partner with deputy Billy Blevins, who stirs mixed feelings in her,
to connect the lake murder to the refugees. Katrina is no stranger to
darkness, but cold-blooded conspirators plan to make sure she’ll
never again see the light of day . . .

Passing the alley, Josie heard a soft meow. She stopped,
listened, but hearing nothing, she continued on.
Entering
the lobby, she was greeted with a smile. As she started to sign in, the smile
quickly turned to a frown, then a sneeze. That sneeze was quickly followed by
another three.
“Pardon,”
the clerk said, pulling a handkerchief from his pocket and wiping his nose.
“How may I help you?” He wheezed, another sneeze taking hold of him.
“I
would like a room,” Josie replied, putting her medical bag on the counter.
“Perhaps I can help you. How long have you been sneezing? Do you feel congested?”
“I’m
not sick,” the man smiled as he sneezed again, “just allergic to cats.”
Looking
around, Josie saw nothing and was preparing to say as much when a soft “meow”
sounded from under her skirt.
Pulling
up the hem, Josie bent down to see a pair of gold eyes look at her from a coat
of dark gray. “How did you get there?” Josie asked. Lifting the small creature
up, she moved to the door. The kitten clung to her shoulder, headbutting her
chin, loud purrs sounding in her ear.
“Well
I’ll be,” the clerk exclaimed, followed by a series of sneezes. “Sure is a cute
one,” he continued when the sneezes abated once again. “No one’s been able to
get that close to it.”
“You
know this because…?” Josie asked.
