1768,
Philippines


Spanish Captain Raúl Calderón has accepted a daring mission in the Philippine
colonies – to negotiate docking rights in hostile waters for the Manila Galleon.
If successful, he can return from exile to be with those he loves. But when he
is captured by slave raiders and delivered to the Last Princess, a woman known
for killing those who cross her, he is thrust into the center of royal
intrigue. The Last Princess is not what she seems, however, and Raúl must stay
alive long enough to warn her of the danger in trusting those close to her.
Juliza Alimuddin, The Last Princess, hides behind a cutthroat reputation to  protect her beloved islands. But when a mysterious Spaniard, Raúl Calderón, falls into her hands, she decides to go against her allies’ wishes and nurse him back to health. Her heart has been bruised in the past, yet Raúl brings out feelings she never thought she’d have again. Just when Juliza starts to believe in the possibility of love, however, she is betrayed and her family and
sultanate put in a deadly situation. Will The Last Princess live up to her
reputation when forced to choose between her people and the man she loves?This is book 2 of a series, but can be read as a standalone.

Snippets:
Raúl had never felt more alone. Suddenly, he saw
his life ahead of him in this colony, full of nights like this where he was
among people but without anyone caring if he stepped off the harbor into the
ocean. He wondered if he would fit in. When he had left Spain, he had been
running from heartache. He had been running from pain. But if he thought he
could find its antidote here, among the pretty little ladies who beckoned at
him with their eyes and lips from the doorways of the thinly-veiled brothels on
this Philippine street, he felt hopeless. Each of the ladies’ faces reminded
him of a beauty at home. A beauty who had repudiated him for worldly and
political ambition.

Breathe in, breathe out. 
 
This mantra gets Tessa Benson through the day. 
 
The man she loves walks all over her, and she just wants to get by without her
heart shattering to pieces. If she could find her voice, she’d scream.
 
Everything changes in one night, when she’s snatched from the streets and tied
to a bed, a camera set up to capture her dying moment. And the person who paid
to watch her die…is still out there somewhere.
 
Tessa prowls dark neighborhoods in a quest for justice, but she doesn’t find the killer. Not until they strike again…in the place Tessa is least expecting, and where it hurts worst.

“That’s true and further proves my point,” Terin says. “It’s time you started sticking up for yourself. So, back to the Tom thing…you’re over him then? You’re doing okay?”
I bite my lip and stare at the ceiling fan overhead. Mostly shadows in the dark room, its blades are still and my clock light reflects off it oddly in the center so that it almost appears to have eyes. It looks like a starfish clinging to my roof.
Should I lie or tell her that I’m miserable and praying he’ll call me? I don’t even know why. Like she said, he’d told me he couldn’t see me anymore. Not that he didn’t want to see me. Just that he couldn’t. That thought makes me sick to my stomach. How could I want a man who no longer wants me? I bet Gerald would be more than happy if I called him tonight. Ugh, I’m such a stupid girl sometimes.
“Yeah, yeah, Terin, don’t worry about me. I’ll be fine. I, uh…”
My phone buzzes as a text comes in.
Without thinking, I pull the phone from my ear to take a peek. It’s Tom. My
heart thuds against my ribcage. Hit the text. Read it silently, holding my
breath while my friend rambles on.
Tom: Stop. Texting. Me.
That’s it. That’s all he has to say to me. Tears well up and I feel like I might choke on them. Swallow down the shame. Terin was right about him. I never meant anything to him. I’m probably one of many. Insignificant. I place the phone to my ear and listen to the last bit of whatever Terin prattles on about. I can’t focus. When she pauses, I take the chance to escape. “Hey, I hate to cut it short, but my stomach is killing me. I think I might have eaten something bad. Do you mind if we hang up for the night?”
“No, no, sure. Sorry you’re not feeling so good. Hope you’re not on the toilet all night long. Remember that time I ate the bad clam chowder and nearly died from projectile diarrhea?”
No answer.
“Okay, I’ll let you go then, Tess. Just call me in the morning to let me know you’re alive.” 
Hoping I still sound cheerful, I say goodnight, hang up, and toss the phone to the foot of the bed.
I’m not even going to try to breathe through this. I stare up at the ceiling and let the tears run down my cheeks,
into my hair, and onto my pillow. The starfish on the ceiling stares back at
the sad, pathetic girl and laughs.

No one at Puddling-on-the-Wold ever expected to see Sarah Marchmain enter through its doors

Friday, July 7th, 2017
SEDUCING MR. SYKES
by
Maggie Robinson
Genre: Historical Romance

 

Pub
Date: 6/20/17

 

 

In Maggie Robinson’s sparkling new
series, the quaint village in Gloucestershire is where the wayward
sons and daughters of Great Britain’s finest families come for some
R&R—and good old-fashioned “rehab.” But sometimes they find
much more…
No one at Puddling-on-the-Wold ever
expected to see Sarah Marchmain enter through its doors. But after
the legendary Lady’s eleventh-hour rejection of the man she was
slated to marry, she was sent here to restore her reputation . . .
and change her mind. It amused Sadie that her father, a duke, would
use the last of his funds to lock her up in this fancy facility—she
couldn’t be happier to be away from her loathsome family and have
some time to herself. The last thing she needs is more romantic
distraction…
As a local baronet’s son, Tristan
Sykes is all too familiar with the spoiled, socialite residents of
the Puddling Rehabilitation Foundation—no matter how real their
problems may be. But all that changes when he encounters Sadie, a
brave and brazen beauty who wants nothing more than to escape the
life that’s been prescribed for her. If only Tristan could find a
way to convince the Puddling powers-that-be that Sadie is unfit for
release, he’d have a chance to explore the intense attraction that
simmers between them—and prove himself fit to make her his bride…
Maggie Robinson didn’t know she
wanted to write until she woke up in the middle of the night once
really annoyed with her husband. Instead of smothering him with a
pillow, she decided to get up and write—to create the perfect
man—at least on a computer screen. Only to discover that fictional
males can be just as resistant to direction as her husband. The
upside is that she’s finally using her English degree and is still
married to her original, imperfect hero. Since she’s imperfect,
too, that makes them a perfect match. Until her midnight keyboarding,
she had been a teacher, librarian, newspaper reporter, administrative
assistant to two non-profits, community volunteer, and mother of four
in seven different states. Now Maggie can call herself a romance
writer in Maine. There’s nothing she likes better than writing
about people who make mistakes, but don’t let the mistakes make
them.

The
jar illuminates her face with its pale hue, bouncing blue light into the gleam
in her eyes. From across the room, the glow also points out another pair of
eyes, and I know Gwynn and I aren’t the only ones admiring the jar filled with
glistening, blue-tinted tears.
“Can
you at least tell me what our immediate plans are?” I ask. We’ve been heading
toward the tears, but that can’t be all there is to this whacked-out journey
we’re on.
“That’s
in your hands, actually,” he says, sliding me a husky look.
“Mine?
Why?”
The
tears pang at my back, reminding me of their direction. Right. I’m leading him
to them.
Talon
sighs and frowns into the heat of the fire. “There’s also someone I need to
find. I want to know who shed those tears, and I think he has a way of
determining that.”
Now
we’re getting somewhere. “And you think it’s important, to know whose they
are?”

fire-gleamed eyes hold me still. “Very.”

“Be careful
what you wish for . . .
Delphine Baudry wished to be a best-selling author, and now instead of celebrating and jumping into her next novel, she’s frozen with fear. What if she turns out to be a one-hit-wonder? What if all her new fans hate the next book? To top it all off, she can’t even discuss the situation with her favorite brainstorming partner, her mother, who is losing her memory to Alzheimer’s. Taking a cue from some teens tossing Euros into a fountain, Delphine gives into some whimsy and wishes for her next book plot.
Jean-Paul Chassériau wished to start an online marketing company in La Rochelle. Now the real work begins. Feeling pressure to live up to his father’s name in
traditional marketing and far enough away to be out of his shadow, he has a
million ideas but no clients. When he finds a funky old Franc lodged between
cobblestones near a fountain, there was only one thing to do. Make a wish.
When their coins collide, Delphine and Jean-Paul’s wishes become intertwined, changing the course of their futures and teaching them that wishes are sometimes fulfilled in unexpected ways.”

“So, did I ruin
your wish?” Delphine asked.
Jean-Paul smiled.
She liked to jump right to the point, no tiptoeing around. “No, not at all.
I’ve never seen two coins collide like that.”
“Ah, but just
because you haven’t seen it, doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened. Statistically,
anyway,” Delphine said, picking up the cup and saucer.
“I’m willing to
admit the probability is non-zero, but I can’t imagine it would be very high,”
Jean-Paul shot back, interested to see her response to his geeky comment.
“Tell me,”
Delphine said, leaning forward, intrigue glinting in her eyes. “How many coins
have you seen thrown into that fountain?”
He folded his arms
and brought up one finger to tap his chin, going for a deep-in-thought pose.
“You’re right. Maybe we should perform an experiment. How about we meet here
again on Thursday?”
His pulse sped up,
wondering if she’d accept his invitation.

For the first time since seeing the monster triangles rise from the
desert floor and beginning his ascent, he was able to look around from his
vantage point. All around him, the city of Cairo spread like a blanket. At
three in the morning, it was dark. The only lights in the area were the floodlights
mounted on the ground to illuminate the pyramids. With a final look across the
complex, he stepped to the edge of the weathered stone.
“Hey! You there—don’t move!” A mechanical police orb hovered near the
bottom of the side nearest him. It started to rise toward the top where he
stood. Antony stepped back and turned to the opposite side of the pyramid. He
touched the “on” switch for his phone.
“MAT, can you change my appearance by remote? Right now?” he asked the
artificial intelligence program designed by his best friend.
“Right now?” the female voice asked. The New Zealand accent caused a
pang of homesickness that he had to ignore.
“Unless Gage wants to bail Antony Danic out of jail.”
“You’re not supposed to climb the pyramids. It’s illegal.” MAT must have
triangulated his position from his phone signal.
“I know that, MAT. Work with me here.” He could hear the orb repeating
the stop orders.
“Are you ready to become him?” she asked.
Antony grimaced. He hated the feeling of the appearance chip as it worked
its genetic change but not more than the idea of becoming someone else for the
rest of his life.
Antony Danic didn’t exist anymore, and if he was arrested, he was going
to have a hard time explaining why—after five years of being dead—he had
suddenly re-appeared. The empty casket buried next to Elite’s was supposed to
be his final resting place. Through lots of fake paperwork and falsified
documentation, Antony Danic was declared dead. Now, it needed to stay that way.
Still, he’d felt strongly that he needed to cross out that last line on the
paper as his old self.
Now he was going to pay for being sentimental.

The enemy she once called friend

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

 

Laurie (L.C.) Lewis will always be a Marylander at heart—a weather-whining lover of crabs, American history, and the sea. She admits to
being craft-challenged, particularly lethal with a glue gun, and a devotee of sappy movies. 



Her ninth published novel, her first romance novella, Sweet Water, was inspired by a visit to Oregon’s magnificent coastline, and time
spent with Mother Eugenie, upon whom the character Mother Thomasine is based. 



Laurie’s women’s fiction novels include The Dragons of Alsace Farm (2016),
Awakening Avery (2010), and Unspoken (2004), written as Laurie Lewis. Using the pen name L.C. Lewis, she wrote the five volumes of her award-winning FREE MEN
and DREAMERS historical fiction series, set against the backdrop of the War of 1812: Dark Sky at Dawn (2007), Twilight’s Last Gleaming (2008), Dawn’s Early Light (2009), Oh, Say Can You See? (2010), and In God is Our Trust, (2011).


She is currently completing a political suspense novel planned for a summer
2017 release, a re -release of a romantic comedy, and she’s working on another historical fiction novel for a 2018 release. She loves to hear from readers.

Widowed, and in desperate straits, she is forced to accept Hudson’s offer to recuperate at his parents’ empty house on Oregon’s Cannon Beach, but her return
to the place where the three friends once summered casts new light on her hasty marriage and on the enemy she once called friend.When Hudson offers Olivia a job doing humanitarian work, something hopeful and
familiar awakens in Olivia, giving rise to long-denied feelings for Hudson. Stuck

confusing past, and forgive the man she once hated, before Hudson walks away
again, closing the door on their possibilities forever.

Snippets:
It was true. Hudson regretted introducing the awkward University of Washington coed to Jeff almost immediately. Jeff had no interest in Liv beyond what tutoring help she could give him, but Hudson clearly remembered how quickly she morphed from a geeky scholar who was more comfortable writing HTML code than love letters to a shy beauty soon after he inserted her into the odd friendship he enjoyed with his high school jock friend, Jeff. He felt like a harness over the next four years, stabilizing two very different members of the trio while maintaining a healthy separation between Liv and Jeff. He told himself it was for the good of the work, but he knew it was more. Even though the pair showed an outward indifference to one
another, Hudson knew Liv turned herself inside out to impress Jeff.

Saturday, July 1st, 2017
“Seventeen-year-old Emma Harris is drowning on dry land. No one knows what’s happening to her, and she’d like to keep her evolution from human to mermaid a secret, but the truth is getting harder and harder to hide. From her adoptive family, from her friends, and especially from the irresistible James Phelps. Her time in the ocean is spent dodging a possessive merman, while her time on land is split between caring for her special-needs brother and squeezing in every last possible moment of human life. She soon realizes falling for James is unavoidable when he constantly comes to Emma’s rescue and somehow manages to see through her carefully constructed icy facade to the vulnerability she lives with every day. Everything about James makes Emma yearn for a life on land she just can’t have. When Emma’s brother disappears on her watch, James is the only person she trusts to help her save him. But even if they can save her brother, nothing can prevent her return to the sea. Whether she likes it or not, Emma is changing—unable to breathe without yielding to the tide—and it’s only a matter of time before she’s forced to surrender forever.”

Snippets:
Lieutenant
Peters made another note, then pocketed his notebook and stood, frowning. “What
are you planning to do about this broken window? It’s unlikely you’ll get a
glass company out here to replace it until morning. Is there somewhere you and
Keith can go for the night?”
“Keith’s
staying at the neighbor’s.” Emma took in the glass all over the floor, the cool
breeze blowing in, and had to swallow a lump in her throat. “I don’t know what
to do about the window.”
“I’ll
help her take care of it.” James reached across the arms of their chairs and
took her hand, palm-to-palm, an offer of solid support—friendship. “Do you know
if your dad has any plywood lying around?”
“Probably.”
Her head spun as the initial adrenaline rush wore off, but she squeezed James’s
hand, grateful. “Thanks.”
He
shook his head. “Don’t worry about it.”
Peters
leveled his gaze on James. “You planning to stick around for a while?”
James
hesitated, his eyes searching hers for approval. “As long as Emma needs. I’ll
help her clean up, make sure she’s not alone if the vandal comes back.”
Something
stirred, fluttered, in Emma’s chest, soft, like the tentacles of a jellyfish in
motion. She tried to push the feeling away, but James held tight, and the warm
sensation traveled up her arm and spread through the rest of her body.
Tread
carefully, Emma. Go slow. Don’t dive in just because it feels good to be
touched, to have someone worry about you.
James
moved her in foreign ways, from places no one else had managed to reach. By all
accounts, he should be forbidden territory. She couldn’t ask him to stay, but
tonight, she didn’t relish the idea of being alone, either.
Another
officer poked his head in the door. “Lieutenant, we’re clear out here.”
“Thanks,
Brown.” Peters handed Emma a business card. “Here’s my number. I’m on duty
until two a.m., but you can call anytime.”

“Thanks.”
She ran her fingers over the card as Peters strode from the house, closing the
door behind him. Outside, the cops got in their cars, turned off the flashing
lights, and one by one, drove away.
