The mischievous Princess Jules of Aggadorn has been pampered and protected her entire life. More than anything, she longs to experience challenges
and adventure. But with her mother’s threat to marry her off hanging over her head, Jules fears she will never have the chance. All that changes when she’s kidnapped by pirates.
 
Forced to labor for her passage aboard Captain Jaymes’ vessel, Jules learns more about life than she bargained for. Captain Jaymes doesn’t fit Jules’ idea of a thieving buccaneer. Beneath his rough exterior lies a man of honor desperate to save his people from a murderous sorcerer. Jules never expects to fall in love with the handsome young captain or to involve herself in the
pirates’ plight, much less have the power to save an entire kingdom.

“No, the servants aren’t the only ones you play tricks on, are they?
Let’s not forget the feast we had last spring. Ten visiting dignitaries, and
you put salt in all their drinks!” –Queen Lissa of Aggadorn
The girl was trouble. He could feel it in his bones. –Jaymes,
Captain of the Avenging Lady
The nagging feeling that the captain wasn’t as cruel as he seemed stayed
with her. His silent attention didn’t go unnoticed, and she wasn’t entirely
certain it was unwanted. –Princess Julianna of Aggadorn

Letting go of the past, facing the present and future, is harder said than done

Scarlett really should have been happy with Rhett and it’s a darn shame Leo and Kate didn’t float safely into New York on the Titanic. Don’t even get me started on Romeo and Juliet. To

“A funny and bittersweet look at grief, love and families who
maybe love each other too much.
 
 
Letting go of the past and facing the present and future is harder said
than done for Kam Matafeo. Getting over his wife’s death isn’t something on
Kam’s list of things to do.  But when
Grace Jackson, his new Sous Chef walks in, life is turned upside down. And not
just for him either.  Anne, his
mother-in-law, is not open to the idea of anyone new in Kam’s life and will do
anything to stop his romance from blooming. But when the ‘Love Witches’ step in to protect him, the battle lines are drawn. Fircrest is in for some fireworks
when the fight for Kam’s heart not only affects his family, but his friends’
lives too.
 
Things get so crazy that Grace has to make the decision to stay and
fight for herself and Kam or to give up and let Kam slip back into the
darkness.”

Excerpt 1:
Barry gestured to the
guests.  “This is Pule Matafeo and his
wife, Posey. And this couple is Asher and Meredith Murphy.”
Grace frowned and stared
at Pule Matafeo.  Was the whole town nothing but Matafeos?
“Uh, any relation to those
guys?” she said gesturing over her shoulder to Tate and Tai. She looked back at
the table and all four heads looked down as if they had been staring in her
direction.
Pule smiled serenely and
nodded. “Those two men are my cousins and Kam is my big brother.”
Grace smiled and reached
out her hand to shake.  “It’s a privilege
to meet you.  I have to say, I love
working for your brother.  He is so kind
and thoughtful.  I can’t even imagine
what it would be like to grow up with Kam as an older brother,” she said.
Pule snorted and was about
to say something when the woman sitting next to him elbowed him in the
side.  Pule smiled and nodded.  “Kam was wonderful.”
“He is wonderful,” his wife said.
“Hi, I’m Posey, Wren Downing’s younger sister.  She’s told me about your gnocchi.”
Grace grinned. “I love
Wren! She’s my favorite.  Are you a chef
too?”
Posey shook her head.  “Oh, no. I can barely microwave food.  I write children’s books.”
Grace shook her head.
“That is so cool.  Good for you.”
And I’m Kam’s ex-girlfriend.”
Grace swiveled her head to
see an attractive blond with a razor sharp angled bob looking her up and down.
“Um, okaay. That’s nice for you.”
The man sitting next to
her rolled his eyes and sighed loudly. “I’m Asher Murphy.  And since you’re new in town, we run the Match and Mingle web site for singles in
the Fircrest and Tacoma area.  The first
month is free.”
Grace frowned and looked
down at her hands.  “I probably should
look into something like that but I have the worst luck with men.  The last guy I dated, emptied out my savings
account. I think I’ll stick to what I’m good at. Cooking.”
“Gotcha. You’re a cat
lady,” Meredith said with a small, self-satisfied smile.
Grace turned and smiled
directly at the woman, not breaking eye contact. She made it a rule to never
back down from a bully and she wasn’t going to start now, even if it was an ex
of Kam’s. 
Meredith looked away first
and blushed.  “Sorry, that was rude,” she
finally said.
Grace didn’t bother
acknowledging the obvious and looked back to Pule and Posey.  “So how was dinner tonight?” she asked,
changing the subject.
Posey pointed to her
almost empty plate.  “I’m about to order
another meal just so I can take home some leftovers.  It was amazing, Grace.  Truly, delicious.”
Pule stopped glaring at
Meredith to smile at her.  “Let’s just
say we’ll be coming back every week for dinner and twice for lunch if I have
anything to say about it.”
Asher put his fingers to
his lips and make a kissing motion.
“Perfection.  Thank you for moving
to Fircrest, Grace.  We’re all very happy
you’re here. Right, Meredith?”
Grace watched curiously as
Meredith winced.  If she wasn’t mistaken,
someone was getting kicked under the table.
“She might be a halfway
decent cook but that doesn’t mean that she’s good enough for K…” she gasped suddenly and didn’t
finish her sentence. She glared across the table at Pule. “That hurt!”
Pule ignored Meredith and
smiled up at her.  “I think you are good enough for Calzones.  I’ve been after Rob forever to add them to
the lunch menu.”
Grace smiled in
confusion.  “Good enough for calzones?
Uh, sure.  I’ll see what I can do.  You all have a wonderful evening.  I have one more table to say hi to.”
She walked away, motioning
to Barry to show her the last table.
That was the weirdest encounter she’d had since moving to Fircrest.  She was going to stay clear of Meredith. That
woman was psycho.

American writer Nora Tierney is house hunting in Oxford to solidify her little family that includes her almost-year old son, Sean, and her partner, Det. Insp. Declan Barnes. But why does she feel like she’s being followed? 

When tracking devices confirm Nora has a stalker, it sets off a chain of events that connect to Declan’s murder investigation of a young Oxford art restorer, and will bring bioterrorism and a psychopath into their lives, while Sean’s hangs in the balance. The fourth Nora Tierney English mystery is the most tension-filled yet, a meditation on what is family and home, combined with art theft and an international conspiracy.

This book will be available soon. Make sure you read the first three books in the series first!

(From Chapter 1:)
 
 In the 10 weeks he’d been following her, it became obvious that Nora
Tierney was a competent mother who loved and cared for her child. It
seemed they had a fairy-tale life, bouncing back and forth between the storied city and the nature-filled village.
From the overheard talks with Barnes, her friends, and phone
conversations, plus the house viewings, he learned she planned to move
back to Oxford. When would that happen? How long would she stay in Bowness this time?
How long could he keep following her?
As long as it took.

Snippets 1:
Courtney stopped abruptly as the scatterings of a
cave-in came into view. “Oh no,” she whispered, one hand to her mouth. Moving
slowly, she noticed a body slumped in the hallway. “Please don’t be dead,” she
said over and over again as she moved closer. She couldn’t help but wonder
which of her friends lay there, and what had happened to the other.
The closer she came, the more detail came to light. She
recognized Tyler Durand as he lay on his side. His light-colored hair lay limp
against his head. His skin was unnaturally pale. At least she didn’t think he
was dead. It took a lot to kill a dragon. But just beyond him, a little more
out of the way, lay Anwen Porter. And she wasn’t moving.

An Amish
girl prays for answers. Will she find them?

 

Life in the
small Amish community of Orthause, Pennsylvania is predictable to Hannah Zook.
As the teacher of the one-classroom school, Hannah is happy with her life and
relationship with God.
The only
question she has concerns Eli Reimer, the Mennonite man who wishes to marry
her. Eli is the sort of man Hannah has always dreamed of marrying. But in order
to marry him, she must give up her faith and join his.
But when a man is found murdered, Hannah ends up with much more than romance on her mind.
The victim’s wife Martha recently left him, and everybody knows why. Now she’s
the number one suspect. Hannah knows her friend is innocent and will do
everything to prove it.
She is joined in her quest by her childhood friend, Abram, who quietly supports her even when others tell her to mind her own business.
And as she works to solve the murder, Hannah might just find the answers to her prayers about her future–and he might have been under her nose the whole time.

 

~ Universal Amazon Link ~
Excerpt: 
 
“You have not been to a singing since you started this. I am trying
to court you, but you use this murder as a reason not to see me. Be honest with
me, Hannah. Do you even want to marry me? Or is this murder more important than
our future?”
“Of course not,” she protested. “Eli, I am sorry if I
have offended you. I was just trying to help my friend. But Martha has
been released. They know she did not kill her husband. And I have decided to do
as I have been advised and stop.”
She would not tell him whose advice she was following. If he did not
like her and Abram spending time together, he certainly would not like her
being alone with Jacob King, the well-known flirt. Eli’s shoulders relaxed, and
he took the brush from her, wiping down the bottom of the board while she wrote
Monday’s lessons on the top.
Her newly-discovered fears pressed against her lips, wanting to come
out, but she couldn’t tell him about them. Not after the scolding he had
already given her. If Abram was the one to walk her home, it would be
different.

 

Eli just did not understand.

The Heart of Escher

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

 

James Fisher, a lonely, bullied schoolboy, finds himself in
the dark and twisted land of Escher after wishing himself away from an
ill-fated family holiday.


Lost and frightened, James must help heal the dying world of
Escher, overrun by the creatures of the Nightmare forest, to return home.
Guided by the emerald-eyed cat, Sam, and befriended by the
headstrong resistance fighter, Jasper, James is taken on an adventure through a
world mirroring his own nightmares, where he is forced to confront his own
fears and the ghostly Shadow in order to save Escher.



Unbeknown to James, not only is he fighting for Escher’s
future, but also his own.

Check out the trailer!

Born and raised in Hampshire, I spent most of my childhood dreaming up random adventures.

I left the sunny south coast to study Graphic Communication in Bath, where I fell in love with the rolling Somerset hills when I wasn’t walking up them.
Returning to Hampshire 6 years later, after meeting my now wife, Claire, I enjoy a quieter life, walking in the New Forest and relaxing with my wonderful wife and fluffy cat Molly.
I have always enjoyed telling stories, more often than not in visual form, either in films or animations. However, the idea of Escher was too big for me to do visually by myself so I picked up a pen and started writing.
Having written one novel, I am now keen to tell more stories of Escher, while at the same time expressing my imagination with my art.

My Review:

The Heart of Escher by Jonathan Dance is a great story for middle grade kids. However, it does start out rather depressing as James, the main character, goes through some rough times at home and school. As the characters get introduced and the story moves along, things go from bad to worse and keep you glued to the pages. You will find a great array of stone brutes, goblins, and animal creatures mingled with the humans between its pages.

The story starts on the last day of school when James has to endure bullying once again. The next day, he is going on vacation with his family of five; his parents, his younger brother and baby sister. The trip is quite long and they have to traverse two or three countries before they get there. His father has a short fuse and he, being the oldest, gets pinned with many things. He is having a terrible time until…he wakes up in a weird land with animal creatures that act like humans where everyone thinks that he is special and will help them free their land from darkness. But he is a nobody, how can they expect him to save them?

The Heart of Escher by Jonathan Dance, is a well-done tale with all kinds of fascinating stories, all with James in pursuit of his family and later trying to save Escher. I enjoyed the tale and the telling, and I believe many elementary kids and pre-teens will make The Heart of Escher by Jonathan Dance, their favorite. Great job.

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
sidewalk.

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.

Snippet

Courtney glanced out the window overlooking the dining area as she did. Overhead, something momentarily blotted out the sun. It looked like some kind of bird, though none she could identify. She moved closer to the window, trying to decide if she’d seen something or not. “Hey, Tyler, have you heard of there being any kind of large bird in the area?”

Tyler looked up from cleaning the counter with a dishtowel. “Large birds?” He abandoned his cloth and walked over to the window. The hair on the back of his neck began to prickle as he saw another shadow cross over the sun. It didn’t look like the typical fowl.

The silhouette looked like some kind of flying creature. It resembled one he’d seen several years ago. He could clearly see two creatures, even though they were both relatively far away. “That’s not a bird,” he warned. He reached for the nearest weapon, which happened to be a wooden walking stick from against the wall.

Seeing Tyler’s unusual reaction, Anwen felt her chest tighten. “How did they find us?”

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.

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.

Ione’s Dilemma by Linda Carroll-Bradd

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017
As a young girl, Linda was often found
lying on her bed reading about fascinating characters having exciting
adventures in places far away and in other time periods. In later years, she
read and then started writing romances and achieved her first publication–a
confession story. Married with 4 adult children and 2 granddaughters, Linda now

When Ione Forrester calls off her
wedding, she becomes the social pariah of Des Moines. Much to her society
parents’ chagrin. To escape the gossip, Ione accepts a teaching job in Dorado,
Texas, vowing to avoid scandal at all costs. Relocating from a doctor’s
household with cook and maids to a room in a boarding house is quite an
adjustment. Then she has to face her biggest challenge—a schoolhouse full of
students.

 

 
Carpenter Morgan Shipley’s business is
doing well and now he’s looking for companionship. An ad for a mail-order bride brings a deluge of letters, which prove more than he can handle. To his
surprise, an intriguing woman from a big city arrives in his small Texas town.
Correspondence is nothing like interacting with a flesh-and-blood woman every
day. But gossip-leery Ione wants nothing to do with Morgan’s attempts at
courting, which makes him try even harder.

In the
next instant, Ione shot upright and clamped a hand on the wooden slat in front
of her. Blood pounded in her ears, and she thought she might faint. Last night,
Bradford told her he had to attend a lecture series and couldn’t accompany her
to the opera house performance of Das Rheingold. So why was he
canoodling with another woman on a trolley at eleven in the morning?

Pleasance’s First Love by Kristin Holt

Saturday, April 1st, 2017

Kristin Holt

USA Today Bestselling Author

 


I recall the winter of my first grade year, basking in the heat from our fireplace in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Dad read aloud Madeline L’Engle’s A WRINKLE IN TIME and Mom peeled orange segments for us to enjoy. That was the definitive moment I fell in love with fiction.
  
I write frequent articles (or view recent posts easily on my Home Page, scroll down) about the nineteenth century American West–every subject of possible interest to readers, amateur
historians, authors…as all of these tidbits surfaced while researching for my books. I also blog monthly at
Sweet Romance Reads, Sweet Americana
Sweethearts
, and Romancing the
Genres

His worst mistake was letting her go.
His second-worst mistake? Bringing her home.

No one will ever know how badly Pleasance
Benton’s abandonment threw Jacob Gideon. He landed hard, hard enough he didn’t care to find a replacement. Now that he needs a woman, he figures the safest
way is to order one from a catalog.

Pleasance is back to reclaim her rightful
place at Jacob’s side. One way or another she’ll remind him theirs is a match made in heaven…once the shock wears off. The teensy-weensy problem? Jacob doesn’t know that she—
his first love—is
his catalog bride.
.

Snippet #1
 
Jacob had been a man of twenty-three when last
she’d seen him.
He’d…grown.
 
Broader, taller, his features more defined,
the power in his lean body evident in every pacing step.
 
No, the man didn’t pace. He prowled. Stalked.
And collided with her—
 
Not physically. Just the same, his attention
snared and she was caught. A rabbit in his trap.
 
Every time she anticipated this reunion, she’d
known precisely how he’d respond—how could she not? She’d known him forever.
In these many rehearsals, he’d taken her
elbow, ever the gentleman, and escorted her away from the crowded platform.
He’d never been one to make a scene or cause a lady a moment’s discomfort.
 
In rehearsal, he’d searched her face for answers,
with hope, surprise, and joy in his eyes. She’d open her reticule, remove the
bundle of letters he’d penned over the past year, tied neatly with blue ribbon
the exact shade as her gown—
Jacob tensed. A mountain lion, ready to
pounce.
 
She’d anticipated cranky—she could deal with
cranky. Fury collided with incredulity on his features, hardening his handsome
face to granite.
He’d identified her. Instant and undeniable
recognition.
He wasn’t looking left or right, making sure
she was the blue dress and the blue bonnet, as promised by mail.
 
He focused wholly on her, as if she were the
only woman in the world.
Her heart leapt with remembered joy and a love
so strong, so poignant, she smiled. A soft smile, just for him. Without meaning
to, utterly unscripted, she took a step toward him. He looked…wonderful.
He whirled about and strode…away?
 
          Directly
to the hitching post. Without so much as a by your leave, he swung into the
saddle, and with the ease of the accomplished horseman he was, nudged the bay
into a canter.

Monica has to leave home, fast. Her parents are planning to marry her off and although all her friends are marrying, that is definitely not what she wants. She’s seventeen, an amateur sleuth, and sees no reason why she can’t join the ranks of the local lawman, or even become a Texas Ranger, should she choose! 
 
What will happen when she visits her best friend in Texas, only to find herself face-to-face with a handsome Texas Ranger, and
knee-deep in territory she has no idea how to navigate?

Snippet #1
 
“Monica’s attention was still focused on Gabriel, whose bold
green eyes had already settled intently upon her. She felt scrutinized as he
searched out every detail of her features, and yet she knew she was doing the
same to him. The faded color of his shirt indicated many hours spend in the
sun, and the creases at the corners of his eyes bespoke a sense of humor
despite his stern demeanor. Only when Ellen cleared her throat did Monica
remember that she had yet to move forward to greet him…”

The summer Meredith turned eighteen was filled with romance and laughter – two young men sought her hand, and she chose the one she thought would make her the happiest. He certainly was the most handsome, and the wealthiest, and could offer her the most pleasant life. But that turned out to be a mistake . . . one she would regret for a very long time.
In a strange twist of fate, now she’s being given a chance to set things right. Will she be able to live down her past, or will her
foolishness keep coming back to haunt her and keep her from ever being happy
with the man she loves?
 
 
 

 

~ Amazon ~ Amazon UK
~ Amazon Canada ~ Amazon Australia ~

 

Snippet:
Luke ate a hearty
meal, but Meredith only picked at hers. The butterflies in her stomach had
turned into lead weights. She could hardly wait until she could excuse herself
from the table. As soon as the dishes were stacked and the water to wash them
was on to boil, she grabbed Luke’s hand and dragged him outside.
“What’s all the
rush?” he asked with a chuckle as soon as they were out of earshot of the
house.
“Don’t you have
any idea how badly I’ve needed to talk to you? You’re my best friend—I need
your advice.”
He leaned on the
fence that surrounded the property and rested his foot on the bottom rail.
“What’s going on?”
Now that the
moment had come, Meredith wasn’t entirely sure where to start. “Well, you
remember Mr. Bingham.”
“Of course. He’s a
hard one to forget. A fancy suit and a lot of bravado.”
“He’s more than
that,” Meredith protested. “He’s smart and attentive, and he’s . . . well, he’s
interested in me.”
Luke turned to
face her. “What do you mean, he’s interested in you?”
Meredith felt heat
coming to her cheeks. “When we were outside on the porch last night, he said .
. . he said he’d like to get to know me better. As in, to get ready for
courtship.”
“But . . .” Luke
shook his head. “I’m not quite sure what to say to that, Meredith. I always
thought . . .”
When he didn’t go
on, Meredith prompted him. “What?”
“I just always
thought that you and I would get married someday.”
Meredith couldn’t
possibly have been more surprised. His words hit her chest like she’d been
kicked by the cow. “Us? Luke, are you crazy?”
“Apparently I am.”
The muscles in his jaw worked, and she could tell that he was struggling not to
say even more.
“I don’t mean to
be harsh. I just never thought of us that way. You’re my best friend, a
brother, someone I can always talk to. I assumed you felt the same way.”
Luke shook his
head again. “Funny how two people can see the same thing in such different
ways. I’m in love with you, Meredith. I have been pretty much since the first
day we met. There was something about you that just spoke to something in me,
and I thought that someday, it would all come together. Maybe I should have
talked to you about it, huh? Made sure we were on the same page?”
Meredith leaned on
the fence and buried her face in her folded arms. This was horrible. This was
absolutely horrible. How much time had Luke wasted on her when he could have
been out with other girls, girls who could return his feelings? She felt sick
inside knowing that she could never give him what he wanted. All they could
ever be was friends, and this conversation might change that too. Everything
would be awkward between them now.
“I’m sorry,
Meredith. Maybe I should have held my tongue.” He touched her back, much the
same as he had so often over the years, but now it held more meaning. “I’m happy
for you—I really am. If Mr. Bingham is the right man for you, I’ll wish you
well.”

Cora left England for a new life in America as a mail order bride – only to find the man she’s come to marry has been killed in a gunfight.
She has a sister in Kansas, but how can she get there?
Jesse needs this job driving cattle to Kansas so he can marry the woman who’s given him an ultimatum – buy land and settle down, or she’ll
marry someone who will.
But, his cook’s been killed in the same gunfight, leaving him without anyone to drive the chuckwagon. His right hand man, an old cowboy with a soft heart, has a solution for both Cora and Jesse – one he might not like.
Dressed as a boy, Cora heads off with a team of cowboys, led by a man who isn’t happy about her being there. Kansas is a long way away…and a lot can happen before they get there.

Snippet #1
Pulling her
shoulders back and lifting her chin, she put her gloved hand out to him.  “Well sir, since you haven’t properly
introduced yourself to me, my name is Cora Murphy.  I’ve traveled all the way from England to
meet and marry a man named Patrick McClintock.
I just stepped off the stagecoach when the fight broke out, and am now
left awaiting the arrival of my future husband.”
As she
spoke, she watched his face turn red at the reminder of his lack of
manners.  But as she continued, she
noticed his eyes cringe when she mentioned the man’s name she was to marry.  He quickly whipped his head toward Shorty,
before looking back at her.
“My
name’s Jesse Atwell, ma’am.  And, I’m
very sorry to have to tell you this, but the man you are to marry is lying over
there on the street with a bullet in his back.”

Running from hostile Indians attacking Salina, Kansas in 1862, feisty Kizzie Atwell, Grandma Mary’s oldest grandchild, runs into freighter Leander Jones traveling the Smoky Hill Trail. He is as interested in her as his stallion is in her mare. The two join forces to prevent the Fort Riley Army captain from requisitioning their beloved horses for the cavalry. Avoiding
bushwhackers and fighting off a thieving bullwhacker binds their bargain.
In 1865, at the victory dance held at Fort Riley to celebrate the end of the Civil War, Kizzie is asked to participate in a fund-raiser to
aid the Sanitary Commission helping injured and sick soldiers. It involves
chaste sweetheart kisses in exchange for tickets purchased by officers and guests. As a contract freighter for the Army, Leander is invited. Much to Leander’s chagrin, before his chance to claim his kiss, Kizzie’s uncle steps in and puts an end to the kissing game.
Is Leander out of luck, or will the bargain Kizzie and Leander made three years earlier to save their horses lead to a more romantic bargain sealed with a kiss?

          Kizzie could tell
packing the wagon had used up what little reserve of energy Mima had still
possessed. She had watched as her mother had crawled into her wagon box next to
Meredith and, with a sigh, had leaned back against a stack of bedding. Jessie
had climbed into the seat to drive the wagon, settling the shotgun at his feet.
          Kizzie gritted
her teeth as she recalled how he had barked an order at her just as she had
finished handing the jug with the willow bark tea to Grandpa. “Kizzie, make
sure the barn and corral are clear then catch up and get in the wagon. We’re
leaving now.”
          Jesse was her
younger brother. Who was he to give her orders?

The
greatest inspiration is often born of desperation.
 

One year ago Hannah Quinn scored her dream job, and now the fate of the museum she loves will rise or fall on her next exhibit. But wait…
there’s a problem. She doesn’t have a clue what her next exhibit will be!
When a trunk with two quilts is donated to the museum, Hannah’s boss thinks she’s wasting her time chasing down the history of the quilts,
regardless of their beauty; but Hannah persists. She knows there’s something special about these quilts, and a story that demands to be told.
Little does Hannah know, her friend Callum, a researcher and consultant, plays an unexpected a role in her investigation that leads to
questions and discoveries that threaten the foundation of all she holds most dear.
Will her desperation to discover the story of the quilts cause her to lose the very thing she loves the most – or will the secrets she uncover lead her to more than she ever dreamed?

He’ll carve a melody from the solid wood surrounding his heart

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

From the award-winning author of the bestselling novel The Soldier’s Bride read the story of a carpenter who gave a music box to a young polio victim, but held the magic of the melody inside his heart.

He hesitated only half a second before lowering his head. There was something there, behind his eyes, in his soul. Something that seemed familiar to Sophie. She didn’t know Leland, but she recognized that haunted look in his eyes. He had lost someone. He had weathered the storm and still manned his ship, sailing forward through life.

Here’s a little about this story:

World War II has ended but the scars
of the war have carved deep grooves in Sophie Wright’s heart. Now a widow with
two young children, she returns home to Aspen Falls and meets Leland Halverson,
a handsome carpenter who appears interested in her, but afraid of a
relationship. 
Leland wishes he was worthy of the beautiful Sophie, and he adores her two children, but his past still haunts him. Sophie knows that Leland fell apart after his little girl died and his
wife left him, but she doesn’t know the real reason why.
Meanwhile, David Alexander, a decorated bomber pilot has returned to Aspen Falls, and Sophie catches his eye.
Confused by the two vastly different choices of men, Sophie searches for answers from a heart that has betrayed her before.
When Sophie discovers a message inside a music box that Leland once owned, the pieces start to fit together. The enchanting melody urges her to share the secrets of her heart so that she
can understand his. Leland knows the tune from the music box well and if he can find the courage, he’ll carve a melody for Sophie from the solid wood surrounding his heart.

The Undead Must Die or all is lost

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

 

Floriana is a seemingly ordinary art student, until an exciting opportunity to study ancient Greek relics introduces her to long-held secrets and shockingly dangerous truths. 


Her life becomes altogether extraordinary when a seemingly benign morning excursion transforms into an agonizing race across Europe to save humanity. Soon, she must work against the clock to recreate an antidote to save mankind before nostalgic Nazi militias make good on their plan to create a legion of superhuman zombie-soldiers that will wreak havoc on mankind.

As the heir apparent to a family of masterminds, Floriana is the only one capable of thwarting their efforts, but first she’ll come face-to-face with black roses, presumptive killers, and mysterious sects.

With the fate of the world in her hands, can an inexperienced and clumsy art student create an antidote before it’s too late?

Find out in this adrenaline rushing, young adult thrill ride, chock full of espionage, conspiracy theories, spies, and zombies!

The Undead Must Die by Penny Brojacquie is comprised of episodes one and two in the first book of the Order Of The Black Rose Series. It is great reading for anyone who likes adventure with a good plot. The setting is an island in Europe across the Mediterranean sea. Penny gives you a great idea of what it looks like there.

The story tells of an ancient people that is devoted to saving mankind from their own wrongdoings. Like in a great tale, there are other ancient people in it too, but these are the evil doers. The Order of the Black Rose are the good people and they are running out of time to save mankind from becoming mindless zombies with extraordinary physical powers. It takes one bite from an infected person to contaminate another, and there are many waiting to be unleashed on the cities of mankind.

The Order of the Black Rose knows where the paper containing the antidote recipe is and they also know there is only one person who can decipher it, Floriana. Floriana doesn’t know anything about The Order of the Black Rose and, because of the lack of time, they have to kidnap her to keep her from falling into the wrong hands. She can’t believe what they want, because their tale is hard to swallow and she is just an art student; how is she supposed to save the world? To see if she helps or not, you will have to read the book. The Undead Must Die by Penny Brojacquie is a wisp of fresh air in this genre and I enjoyed the clean contemporary story a lot.

Can a Princess be handicapped?

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017
Just in time for Valentines and for your favorite lady, a new clean, young adult, medieval fantasy romance hit the market today. “A Golden Princess,” book three in A Royal Romance Series of Anna del C. Dye is a stand-alone story. You will find an array of characters, fears, love, endurance and heroes, between its pages. Enjoy!

About the book:

Small for her age, Princess Nyala is determined to be noticed and someday rule with fairness and valor in Kaloma. All changes when she looks upon the stars and they predict her accident. After she awakens to a broken body, her father takes to his goblet and she steps into power in her kingdom at sixteen.

Her father said that no man would choose a half-broken princess. Is that how Prince Nicolao sees her after the accident? Her heart is unsure and out of fear she keeps him away to avoid a broken heart.

As soon the other kingdoms in the land determine the predicament of the Royal House of Kaloma, they too will prey on her vulnerability to steal her kingdom. She will have to confront new foes or lose it all.

What other said about the book:

Review by Roseanne Wilkins: A Golden Princess is a story about overcoming hardship and finding true love. This story is a clean romance suitable for pre-teens. I enjoyed the story of love and loss and finding love again through hardship. There aren’t many tales put in a medieval setting that involve strong female characters, especially characters who are physically challenged. Much of the relationship-building between the main characters is told in past perspective after Princess Nyala is injured. Moments are lived through her memories. When Nyala accepts her injuries and moves forward, the story takes off. It was good to read a story where the main character has to face a life very different from what she had planned. I love happily-ever-after’s, and Anna del C. Dye knows how to deliver.
