RUNNING TARGET by Kari Lemor
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Pub Date: 7/4/2017

Book Blurb:
An innocent in the crossfire . . . 

FBI agent Jack Holland broke every rule in the book falling for the girlfriend Angelo Cabrini, son of a New Jersey mob boss. But even if Callie Lansing’s relationship to Angelo was actually a cover and her heart was free, her relationship with Jack put both of their lives at risk. Nothing, though, could make Jack regret the liaison that led to the birth of their son, Jonathan.

After Angelo discovered Callie’s pregnancy, he went after Jack and wound up dead. Now Jack is on the run with a target on his back. The only thing keeping Callie and Jonathan safe is the mob boss’s belief that the baby is his grandchild. But if Victor Cabrini discovers the truth before Jack can put him behind bars, it could mean death for his sweet covert family. (more…)

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?

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.”

WHERE IS PORT STARBIRD? ~
Find
out in this quirky tale set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
In
this quirky low-key murder mystery/adventure, Storm Ketchum, a
damaged emigre to the coastal town of Avon on North Carolina’s Outer
Banks, likes to mind his own business and isn’t any kind of detective
– until he’s forced to become one by extraordinary circumstances. On
the verge of losing his modest waterfront home to an unscrupulous
developer, Ketch stumbles onto the scene of a crime that might expose
the perpetrator of an unsolved murder and enable him to save not only
his own home, but also the similarly threatened bohemian boatyard
community he’s inexorably drawn into. And in case Plan A fails, he’s
hard at work on a Plan B that’s both laudable and pitiable. Together
with his loyal dog, a salty charter boat captain, the sketchy
denizens of the boatyard, and an alluring scuba diving instructor who
may or may not have a hidden agenda, Ketch struggles to make sense of
his new reality, while trying to save some of the things that really
matter along the way.

Welcome
to PORT OF REFUGE – another light and quirky island mystery steeped
in Outer Banks culture, from the author who took you to PORT
STARBIRD.
Storm
Ketchum, a damaged emigre to Hatteras Island on North Carolina’s
Outer Banks, generally prefers to stay close to home and mind his own
business – but he unexpectedly finds himself entangled with a
cult-like coven of modern-day Roanoke Island witches when a relative
of his paramour meets an untimely end on church property. Is the High
Priestess of the Croatoan Covenant Church really in contact with the
departed spirits of the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island? Are the
members of her church really from both this world and the next? Or is
she just a con artist preying on gullible Wiccan acolytes – and is
she a killer? A desire to provide closure for the family drives Ketch
to once again call on his amateur sleuthing skills to conjure up
answers to these and other questions, in the process risking the
physical and spiritual well-being of both himself and the one he
loves.
Join
Ketch, his loyal dog Jack, and his Kinnakeet Boatyard friends as they
embark on a bewitching new adventure in the picturesque Outer Banks,
where intrigue continues to cast its spell on them all.

What could melt a Heart of Stone?

Heart
of Stone
by
Rob Buckman
Genre:
SciFi, Action
Mike
Grainger had enough of killing and death, and all he wanted now was
to be left alone in peace and to forget the past, finding a quiet
place, high in the Rocky Mountains where he could live his life.
Maybe now he could put the ghost that haunted him to rest. Here,
death and destruction were forces of nature, something he understood,
and respected, yet even as he watched a storms moving across the
mountains another storm swept towards him, one that had nothing to do
with the weather.
To
Roland Hawkins’, his world revolved around money and power, and
gaining a fortune that nothing could destroy. To him, disposing of
people who stood in his way meant nothing. He felt no remorse when he
ordered people killed to fulfill his ambition. Now he wanted an
insignificant section of land high in the Rockies, and to consummate
his latest business deal he’d arranged the death of the previous
owner. To his consternation, the land slipped from his grasp before
his agents could obtain it, and due to poor judgment and timing the
land was purchased by another. In fury, he ordered the property be
obtained by any means necessary, thinking his power and money would
protect him from anything. Nowhere in his calculation did he consider
the new owner, Mike Grainger, thinking him nothing more than some
local hick to be disposed of as quickly as possible. Bribery,
extortion, and murder were tools to Roland Hawkins and used to
justify his ambition. Mike Grainger used death and destruction as a
tool to keep what was his. To him, life and death were meaningless,
his own included. It would have all been so easy if Kat Ballard
hadn’t stepped into the picture. She gave him a reason to live, to
care, and pushed the stakes even higher. Now, it was not just a
question of fighting a pack of hired killers on their trail, but
staying one jump ahead of them. He now had to consider someone else’s
life, as well as trying to discover why Roland Hawkins wanted his
land so badly.
Together
they fought the mountain, the mercenaries, the elements, and each
other in a wild death hunt over and under the mountains, finding love
and losing it. Now he was mad. Roland Hawkins would pay a high price
for his ambition: his life. The hunted would now become the hunter.

Who Dares: Book One
The
Gray Chronicals 1
by
Rob Buckman
For
Mike Gray, his life was a series of mysteries and unanswered
question. Even the man who raised him, his paternal grandfather, was
a question mark. Beyond the love, understanding, and nurturing lay
the unanswered question of why a disgraced ex-Royal Naval Admiral
would pulled himself out of a bottle and take upon himself to bring a
one year old child home as raise him as his own. The question of why
his family, the Tregallion clan, refused to come to his aid went
unanswered. Even so, between them they build a life for themselves
until the fateful day he died. After that, Mike fled across the
stars, swearing he would never again take the responsibility for
another person’s death. Fate and destiny had other ideas, plunging
him into one situation after the other where he had to take command,
and decide the fate of others. With war on the horizon, and the
future of the free stars hanging in the balance, Mike reluctantly
accepted his destiny, and the part he must play. For better or worse,
he would find the answered to his question, and make those
responsible pay a terrible price.

To
everyone in the Empire military, all human’s were stark raving mad,
and no matter how hard they tried, or how many they killed, the crazy
human’s wouldn’t stop fighting. What the Emperor, Director Markoff,
and the Empire military should have remembered the old adage. …never
trust a human, and especially Richard Penn.
 

 

For
Penn, the hated and despised human killer, the choice was simple, go
on a suicide mission to a forbidden planet, or another human city
with over a million men, woman and children would die. To make the
mission even more interesting, Director Markoff send along seventeen
cold eyed killer as his escort who’d rather see him dead than breath.
Seventeen cold eyed killer, an inexperience Captain who couldn’t find
his butt in the dark with a flashlight and a map, and one human
female, Sub Major Ellis. A beautiful, gray eyed, cold hearted bitch
in cast iron panties. She hated and despised Penn more than all the
others put together, and held the other end of his electronic leash.  


 

 

So
all he had to do was crash land on a forbidden planet you couldn’t
escape from, lead the motley team through a hundred miles of
trackless jungle full of death traps, unimaginable monsters, and
alien troops, to a mountain size pyramid shaped building.  


 

 

Surviving
the crash landing was one thing, surviving forty eight hours with
seventeen killer another, getting to the building and finding the
Prize would be a miracle, so how could he refuse such an offer.
Getting to the building was easy compared to what they faced inside.
Here, he had to face the most dangerous monster of all to collect a
prize he didn’t want, and maybe lose the prize he truly wanted.

I

am a 65 year old retired mechanical engineer, ex-soldier, ex-sailor,
have mined and prospected for gold in the Amazon jungle in places no
white man has ever been, and generally tried to be a ‘jack of all
trades’ and turn my hand to many things. This came in handy when I
started to write, as I could draw on many different experiences, both
positive and negative to build my stories and characters. To me,
writing is similar to another activity that men do alone… no, not
that, I meant fishing (lol), in that it gives your mind a chance to
wander down strange pathways, and try to answer the question ‘What
if?’. Like many self published authors did before me, I posted my
stories before I had the means, or readership to edit or proofread
the stories, for which you have my apologies, and have attempted to
correct that oversight.  Like any good author, I try to write an
entertaining story of interest to a particular group of reader, i.e.
Sci-fi fans, and not to win an English essay contest, composition
award, or a spelling bee. With luck I have achieved that end, and beg
your indulgence, and hope you will overlook any irritating errors you
still may come across while reading and not let them detract from the
your overall enjoyment of the storytelling.
At

working on several short stories and plotting out sequels to a couple

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.

Jesse lunged toward me. It was too late. I had already launched. He reached out but
didn’t connect. Instead, I broke the trajectory of my upper body by
grabbing him at chest level and sliding down. He was pushed backward
into the table, which stabilized our ungainly host-parasite tableau.
He softened my landing so that physically I was fine, but my pride
was ready for intensive care. 
Heaped at his feet, like a demented penitent, I hugged his knees, my face pressed flat
into his thighs. I might as well stay down. What’s worse? To
stand up and face you, or remain here, nestled between your legs?
What do you think?
Then, the finishing touch: I erupted into
nervous, snorting laughter. He guessed there was no serious injury. 
It’s nice to see you, too. You are okay, aren’t you? Can you stand?” He
reached for my arms to unwrap them from his legs and help me up. I
jammed my eyelids together to conjure up a do-over, but no such
luck. 
I would have to deal with it. 
He held my elbows in his hands. “I guess we were both in a hurry to see each other.” 
I do appreciate your attempt to lighten the mood, but you are standing SO close. I
can feel your body heat. Or is that mine? By the way, you smell tart
and fresh, like a lime.
 
I stared at his shoulder. My dignity meter was stuck on empty. 
Enthusiastic greeting. Thanks for that.” He was blatantly amused. 
It was nothing.”
I stepped backward to regain a semblance of independence. Don’t
mock me. But, you did go to all the trouble to bring your hair. And
your eyes. I might forgive you for witnessing my disgrace. That

As
a journalist, Patrice Locke wrote a lot of stories with unhappy and
even tragic endings.
Facts are facts, and a writer doesn’t mess with facts.
But fiction is another world. Patrice began writing novels, where she can
control the endings and make them as happy as she wants. The best
thing about fiction, she says, is having time to think before her
characters speak, so they can say the things most of us only come up
with after the perfect moment has passed.
She loves to write, read, and watch romantic comedies where life always
turns out the way it should. Her only obsessive relationships are
with semicolons and Oxford commas.
Though she doesn’t like to brag, Patrice is an award-winning artist. She won
a gold and diamond watch when she was 13 for decorating a turkey
drumstick bone to look like Batman. Alas, that was her last
recognition in the fine arts.
Patrice lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, not far from her daughter Kaitlin,
eight hours from her son Trevor, and way too many miles from amazing
grandsons Alexander and Zackary.

Cursed by the Fountain of Youth… how?

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

 

Holly Kelly is a mom who writes books in her spare time: translation–she hides in the bathroom with her laptop and locks the door while the kids destroy the house and smear peanut butter on the walls. She was born in Utah but moved around a bit, living in Kansas, Texas, and Hawaii where she studied marine biology. She’s now back in Utah–“happy valley”. She’s married to a wonderful husband, James, and they are currently raising 6 rambunctious children. Her interests are reading, writing (or course), martial arts, visual arts, creating Halloween props, and spending time with family.

For centuries, countless adventurers have searched for the Fountain of Youth. Those who found it thought they would gain eternal life. Instead, they find themselves murdered by its guardians. There was, however, one, lone survivor—Fae Miller. As an infant, she not only survived the Fountain, she took its power.

Twenty-two years later, Fae is hiding in plain sight at a local college. She’s is determined to leave the past behind her and live a normal life. But for one dying man, the search for the Fountain of Youth continues, and he is leaving a trail of blood and mutilated bodies in his wake. Unfortunately, that trail leads directly to Fae. Her only hope is a young, new college professor, also known as Special Agent Nick Chase of the FBI. Nick is determined to do two things: keep Fae alive, and keep his relationship with his student professional. Both of these jobs prove difficult—especially when love and magic get involved.

Snippet:
 
“I wouldn’t call eternal youth a
curse.”

 

It can be. There is no fear as
universal as the fear of death. Men will kill to stop it. They will do the most
heinous and terrible things to avoid it. And giving you the power to grant
eternal life will make you forever a target.

Can a human heart overcome a demon soul?

 

When soul-eating demons overrun his world, Kaelis, a young seraph warrior, uses the Queen’s ring to open a portal in space and flee with the infant heir to the throne, landing on earth. Unbeknownst to him, the demon leader, Nsark, follows through the portal, determined to devour the soul of every last seraph, especially the Queen’s heir. After Kaelis hides the baby, Nsark creates the ultimate weapon by fathering a half-human, half-demon: a soul-stealer’s child. 


 


Sixteen years later, an awkward teen named James struggles to fit in with his peers. In a last-ditch effort, he joins the school play, where he meets Lucy. Something deep draws them together, and their friendship reveals their hidden pasts: one is an angel, one is half-demon. Lucy and James find themselves pulled into an age-old war between their peoples. Hunted by relentless enemies, and grappling with deep-seated instincts and strange new powers, they must fight for their lives, their souls, and each other.

Snippet:
His rich baritone voice crescendoed in a dark laugh, pulling her gaze back to the stage. Backlit by slanted beams of light, his black curls gleamed. Gray eyes blazed so bright they were almost silver. High, sharp cheekbones soared above full, powerful lips. The cape draped over his broad shoulders, following his tapered form to the floor. Something fierce and powerful seethed inside him like a midnight storm. Was it just acting? Or was the role of Dracula opening a window into what was really inside him? Acting or not, something about James called to her.

When charming rake Tristan Barrett sweeps Lady Elizabeth off her feet, stealing both her heart and a kiss in a secluded garden, her brother challenges Tristan to a duel. 
The only way to save her brother and Tristan from harm—not to mention preserve her reputation—is to get married. But her father refuses to allow his daughter to marry anyone but a titled lord. He demands that Elizabeth marry Tristan’s older brother, Richard, the Earl of Averston.
Now Elizabeth must give up Tristan to marry Richard, a man who loves another, a man she’ll never love.

Snippet:
“Get your hands off my sister!” a voice snarled.
Tristan snapped his head back and stepped away. Alone, Elizabeth wobbled on her feet.
Her brother, Martindale, stalked into view, bristling like an angry dog.
With his hands held out, Tristan faced Martindale. “My lord, we were merely—”
“None of your lies, Barrett.”
Other voices made exclamations of delighted horror. Elizabeth faced a nightmare; most
of the houseguests stared at her, including one of London’s worst gossip, Lady
Einsburgh. Naturally they would assume the worst. Heat crawled up Elizabeth’s
neck and burned her cheeks. She’d never live down the humiliation. Closing her
eyes, she clamped her mouth shut to avoid screaming at the injustice of it all.
She’d only desired a few moments alone with the man she loved. Instead, she’d
been caught in an intimate embrace in a dark garden. Gossipers would spread an
exaggeratedly sordid tale all over England. She’d be utterly ruined.
Immersed in his role of haughty marquis, Martindale snarled, “Consider your second, Barrett. Tomorrow you shall receive my challenge.”
Elizabeth’s heart stalled. A duel? “No, Martindale. You can’t do this.” Elizabeth’s protest
died on her lips as her brother rounded on her.
“Silence! You’ve behaved like a common whore.”
Elizabeth recoiled as if he’d slapped her.
Tristan stiffened. “Hear now, that’s no way to speak to the lady. I give you my word,
it was merely a kiss.”
Martindale let out a scoff. “And I should trust the word of a known rake?” He turned to Elizabeth,
his eyes boring into hers. “You’ve brought disgrace upon the family.”
Tears burned Elizabeth’s eyes. Martindale was right. Only Tristan could save her from
shame. She turned to him, silently pleading for rescue.
Tristan glanced at her, his expression unreadable, before returning his attention to
Martindale. He lowered his voice. “Let us go inside and discuss this in
private.”
“There’s nothing to discuss. You’ve compromised my sister. Choose your weapon.”

Swan and Shadow

Monday, January 30th, 2017

Kathryn Olsen (aka Kaki) has been to 17 countries on five continents. 


After an illustrious upbringing in Massachusetts, she studied English at Brigham Young University. As a result, she’s been known to find theological flaws in zombie lore and Peruvian sacrifice metaphors in Superman movies. 


When not working a desk job or overanalyzing media, she enjoys writing about anything from possessed iPhones to dragon-smuggling androids and has been called upon to lecture on writing by various organizations. 


Her debut novel, Swan and Shadow, was published in March, 2016.

“Aislin is cursed. A regular college student at night and a swan during the day, Aislin can only break the curse by finding her true love. But when her beloved discovers the truth, will his fear override their love? This modern adaptation of Swan Lake will help you discover what love really means.”
 

 

 

 Snippet:
Black
The summer before we
turned thirteen, Aislin and I got to spend a whole month away at camp. It was
one of those all-purpose places that had a name worthy of Thoreau or a
retirement home. The camp had something for everyone, from hiking to skits, but
they stuck Aislin and me in different cabins and we rejoiced. Aislin was in
Bunk 3 with Jill and Bekah, who taught her how to sail and talk to boys. I was
in Bunk 9 with girls who wanted to try makeup and fawn over Derrick Ferrell.
They traded diving lessons for eyeliner tips.
New friends aside, we
couldn’t stand ignoring each other, so we ate dinner together and teamed up for
canoeing. We once swapped bunks and would have gotten away with it if Aislin’s
counselor hadn’t noticed that I had been cured of my hay fever.
Just after the Fourth
of July, disaster struck. Aislin’s counselor pulled me aside to ask where she
was. I hadn’t seen her and the same went for her friends and counselors. I
headed to my bunk after dinner in case my sister turned up there.
Shortly after dark,
Aislin started throwing rocks at my screen. I snuck out of the bunk and found
her hiding behind a birch tree. She was crying and naked and promised to tell
me everything if I could bring her some clothes and a tampon. I brought both of
them without asking questions and while she got changed, I sought out Nina, her
counselor.
Aislin told the
higher-ups that she’d gone skinny-dipping on a dare and someone had swiped her
clothes. Terrified that someone from camp would see her, she’d hidden in the
woods until night. Nina was sympathetic to the awkward teenager, but
skinny-dipping and going MIA were both against the rules. Aislin got kitchen
duty for her infraction and got told that the next time, parents would be
called.
Once we were alone,
Aislin told me that she’d spent all day with wings and the conviction that
she’d gone bonkers. I had no reason to doubt her, but I witnessed her
transformation the next day to prove that it wasn’t a hallucination. After
seeing my twin sister’s hands sprout feathers and watching her shrink to swan
size, I’d wondered if I was bonkers too.
When Aislin went
missing again, I knew exactly where to find her, but there was no way I was
telling Nina. So I shrugged miserably and said I hadn’t seen her that day.
The camp director
decided that both of us had problems with authority. My parents didn’t believe
that, but they didn’t argue when we were asked to leave camp early.

Christmas Countdown Blitz — Caitlyn’s Christmas Wish

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

 

Laura L. Walker grew up in a large family in the beautiful Gila Valley of southern Arizona. From the time Laura was young, ideas for stories bombarded her brain. She would spend hours drawing her characters on paper and fantasizing about their adventures. Life became more serious, however, when Laura met her own hero while at college in northern Arizona and they later became the parents of six children. In between spurts of grocery shopping, sewing costumes or quilts, transporting kids to practices, and making dinner, Laura still enjoys putting her imagination to good use. Laura is the author of two LDS contemporary romances, Pierced by Love and The Matchup. Caitlyn’s Christmas Wish is her first e-novella.

 

Q & A With The Author:

1.  Describe yourself in 50 words or less.
 
To the average person, I might seem quiet and shy. But once you
get to know me, you’ll discover I have an opinion on most everything. I like
solitude and time for reflection. I love creative writing and fun sewing
projects. And only my family knows that I like to sing
.
 
 
2. What do you love most in the world?
 
My family and faith.

Just when former model and single mother Caitlyn Drevier Reel has finally put her life back on track after a divorce and six-month stint in rehab, she is surprised to receive an invitation from her ex-in-laws to spend Christmas with the family. After all, she reasons, her ex-husband Grant is constantly on the road with his band and it’s only fair to allow them to get to know her young son, Brody. What Caitlyn isn’t prepared for, however, is the spark of attraction she feels for Ridge, Grant’s older brother, or the sense of belonging to their wonderful family once again. Ridge, who is recovering from his own personal heartache, seems to feel the same about her. As they work together to ensure the success of the Winter Festival that his parents have organized for their small Wyoming town, Caityln begins to envision a bright future. But will Grant’s unexpected arrival keep her Christmas wish from coming true?

Snippet:
Glancing over at Caitlyn, Ridge was surprised to see that her smile had faltered. “What’s the frown for?”   
“Who said I’m frowning?”
She lifted the corners of her mouth again but Ridge wasn’t fooled. “I know what I saw. What’s going on inside that pretty head of yours?” Her silence prompted him to repeat, “Caitlyn?”
He hoped by turning his attention back to the interstate that she would feel comfortable enough to answer. He was right.
“I don’t mind helping your parents out. They have worked so hard to put this festival together. Last night, I caught a glimpse of the toll it has taken on your mom. And frankly, all of you have helped me so much to conquer my addiction to diet pills and my eating disorder and feel like a normal human being again that I couldn’t possibly refuse.”
Ridge silently acknowledged the truth of her statement. Even before Caitlyn had married Grant,
she’d been a walking stick. Turned out she was fighting an eating disorder that had developed from her mother’s efforts to control her weight in order to procure top modeling spots through the best agents in the business. “I’m glad my parents got you into rehab when they did. It could have ended badly.” Caitlyn
finally hit rock bottom when she discovered that she was pregnant just after she and Grant divorced. That was when his parents decided to intervene.
“Yes. It wasn’t an easy road. Without their support, I wouldn’t have a healthy little boy. I might not even have survived much longer. I got down to a horrifying one hundred and three pounds.”
Ridge remembered how thin she’d been, remembered warning Grant that she needed help. Grant hadn’t appreciated his interference. Ridge might not know what it was like to go through an addiction on top of an eating disorder, but he knew what it was like to be so mired in guilt that personal care no longer mattered. He’d seen Caitlyn’s destructive tendencies for what they were—a cry for help.
Caitlyn had worked hard to become physically and mentally healthy once again, which took the better part of her pregnancy to accomplish. “You should be proud of yourself.”

The Dragons of Alsace Farm are loose… Dementia & Alzheimers

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Agnes, an 82-y-o French WWII survivor will teach Noah and Tayte the greatest lessons of their lives:

The strength of tested love.

The promise of new love.

The power of family love.

And the courage each requires.

In need of his own redemption, Noah Carter finally confronts his childhood hero, the once-beloved uncle who betrayed him. Instead of vengeance, he offers forgiveness, also granting Uncle John a most curious request—for Noah to work on the ramshackle farm of Agnes Deveraux Keller, a French WWII survivor with dementia.

Despite all Agnes has lost, she still has much to teach Noah. But the pair’s unique friendship is threatened when Tayte, Agnes’s estranged granddaughter, arrives to claim a woman whose circumstances and abilities are far different from those of the grandmother she once knew.
Items hidden in Agnes’s attic raise painful questions about Tayte’s dead parents, steeling Tayte’s determination to save Agnes, even if it requires her to betray the very woman she came to save, and the secret her proud grandmother has guarded for seventy years.
The issue strains the fragile trust between Tayte and Noah, who now realizes Tayte is fighting her own secrets, her own dragons. Weighed down by past guilt and failures, he feels ill-equipped to help either woman, until he remembers Agnes’s lessons about courage and love. In order to save Agnes, the student must now become the teacher, helping Tayte heal—for Agnes’s sake, and for his.

The author provides us with excellent reading, especially if you know or care for a person with dementia. I have one, and many things in this book match what I have seen and done. Still, I was surprised at the insights on how to deal with people with this problem, or how to make them more responsive to your needs. I learned a few things in the pages of this book that I found interesting and it is a great read. The story of forgiveness of oneself is viewed in this story and helps readers find strength beyond their own.
Tate is a lovely woman that doesn’t know what she wants until she re-unites with her grandmother. Her mother had told her, years before, that her grandmother was dead. Agnes is the only person who has made her feel normal and Tate wants to reconnect with her.
Noah, on the other hand, has many ghosts of his own and has finally come to see his uncle, who caused him great sorrow when he was ten years younger. He left home and never looked back. Now he is back and finds his uncle almost on the door of death itself.
Agnes has a farm that needs great care, as much as she and the animal’s do. She forgets things and she loves the new guy who helps her on the farm. Noah see Agnes up close and identifies himself with her. He figures out ways to help her return to the present and be active in her everyday life.
All is well until Noah meets Tate and a collision course is drawn between them and Agnes.

Saving Lord Whitton’s Daughter

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016
Lady Bethany would rather die a spinster than submit to marriage—and thus reveal the horrible secret she has harbored for more than a year
Lord Locke is far too immersed in his service to the Crown for romance, but Lady Bethany is in dire circumstances.
Indebted to Bethany’s late father and his close friend, the earl offers a perfect solution for both of them: a marriage in name only.
Perfect, if only they weren’t so irresistibly drawn to each other—and if Bethany hadn’t found herself falling in love with a man even more mysterious than his reputation. Perfect, until she unwittingly learns he’s protecting her from a threat to her life.
To Mark, Bethany is just another assignment, a woman he’s convinced is hiding something. His offer of marriage was meant only to make it easier to safeguard her.
But when the simple threat turns to attempted murder and treason, Mark realizes that Bethany has stolen his heart and he can do nothing less than throw himself into a race against time to save her, whatever the price.

 

 

Susan was born and raised a California girl but is grateful to have lived on the Oregon coast and in the Rocky Mountains of northern Utah. She’s now enjoying living with her husband in the incomparable beauty of the Redwood forest, nestled against the rugged coast of Northern California.

Susan raised a tribe of children, making ends meet as a registered nurse and lactation consultant, and now her tribe members have tribes of their own and she just doesn’t get to see enough of them. She loves to travel and is thrilled with a good movie or a great book, but writing is her passion. She writes almost anything, especially epic fantasy and romance. Saving Lord Whitton’s Daughter is her first Regency Romance.

Saving Lord Whitton’s Daughter is a clean, engaging historical romance by Susan Tietjen. I found the reading great, the pacing smooth and the characters fun and likeable. The scenes portray a proper era and the characters play their part divinely.
Lady Bethany doesn’t want to marry on account of being hurt horribly one night, and she feels that she has nothing to offer a man. For up to a year she manages to avoid the wedding bells, until her mother tells her that if she doesn’t marry soon they will lose their home and the precious horses her father raced there.
Lord Locke, for his part, after finding out about the young woman’s dire situation, and having been great friends with her late father and older brother, feels the only way he can help her is by marrying her. His work for the crown keeps him away from his home most of the year, so he offers her a marriage of convenience and only in name.
It is so fun to see them slowly falling in love, yet no wanting to impose on the other’s feelings. Also their promises to each other to not demand from the other any rights to their marriages vows keeps them apart for a long while. It is an excellent romance and could be loved by either YA or adults alike. Great job.

The Rebel Series. Stories of Love and Liberty

The Rebel Series–Stories of Love and Liberty by Linda Weaver Clarke

There was a time when swashbuckling men and brave women engaged in daring and romantic adventures, those who fought with bravery and valor. These courageous men and women were looked up to because they defended the people.

“This creative take on a Robin Hood-like story is charming and touching, and teaches some great morals about agency and choice. It reminded me of childhood fairytales of good versus evil, with a nice romance weaved into it.” –Author Charissa Stastny

In The Rebels of Cordovia, a group of men and women who called themselves Robin’s Rebels realize they must help the people survive this oppression. In this battle for freedom, a love story begins to blossom. Daniel, a rogue and a leader of the Freemen, doesn’t realize that the sweet feminine woman he has met and is falling for happens to be the leader of Robin’s Rebels. Realizing the importance of uniting all the rebel groups, Daniel tries to recruit Robin’s Rebels but they refuse. Now he has to find a way to convince them. When he finds out the leader is actually a woman, what will his reaction be?

After reading this story, Susan Ortlieb from Suko’s Notebook Reviews wrote: “Linda Weaver Clarke writes with passion and grace, and the love story in this book is simply wonderful. In fact, this aspect of the story was the strongest draw for me. (Are love stories set in the past more romantic than those set in the present day?) I thought that Robin and Daniel sounded perfect for each other, and I enjoyed the steady development of their relationship. This charming book was a pleasure to read, and I relished it.”

The tales from The Rebel Series have adventure, sweet romance, and delectable kisses. These are stories of love and liberty that takes place between the 18th and 19th Century. In the sequel, The Highwayman of Cordovia, the people enjoy their new-found liberty but all is not well. One year after Cordovia gains its freedom, a group of powerful men plan to take over the small country and replace the leader with a king.

With the help of a bold highwayman and a pastor’s daughter, they try to save their country from being taken over by a power-hungry leader. As they strive to stop the Kingmen and thwart their plans, Christine finds herself falling in love with Austin Knight. The only problem with their relationship is that she thinks he is her knight in shining armor instead of a highwayman. If she finds out his trade, what will her reaction be? As a pastor’s daughter, will love override her values?
