As she rushed down London’s Victoria Station, feisty Air Traffic Controller Mara Ellington fought her apprehensions about this journey.

After arriving at the train’s platform, a strange incident will leave her baffled but not as much as her unexpected confrontation with Counter-Terrorist Agent Drake Steinfield who has also boarded the legendary Orient-Express, on a mission to thwart a terrorist threat.
The sexy and tenacious agent is on the tail of an elusive Al-Qaeda Extremist leader who has planned a string of massive explosions along the train’s route. Additionally, he may be using the tourist as a pawn in his schemes and according to the CT agent, this makes her his best lead to stop him. Mara and Steinfield will need to join their forces and race against the terrorist’s deadline to prevent these massive tragedies, if they can put aside their clashing personalities and growing attraction. What destiny awaits them down the line of this Express Pursuit?

MY REVIEW

365 Days of Writing Prompts for Romance Writers by Kim Knight is a great source of inspiration. I was able to copy selected tips from her to write great romances in any genre into my own document for fast referral. It strikes me as good advice as I have written my own romance series the same way she recommends.

The other thing I like about Kim Knight’s book is that after each day’s prompt, she left space for the readers to outline the prompt for a new story of your own making. At the end of the year you will have 365 stories to develop and publish later.

In my case, since I publish about two romances a year that would mean I have enough material for 183 years. In another case I suppose I could use some of the prompts as subplots in the same story. Either way, it’s a lot of inspiration for a writer. You may be able to forget writers’ block thanks to this book’s content.

I will say that this book is a must for romance writers everywhere. You’ll be glad you have it in your personal library.

Kim is born in 1983 and from London in the UK. She’s a mother to a beautiful little boy, and a proud award winning author (awarded Best Romance 2017 title for A Stranger In France). Kim started her journey as a traditionally published author and later dived into self-publishing also.
As a reader she’s head over heels in love with romance, historical fiction, crime fiction, African- American, suspense and thriller genre books. As a writer, Kim enjoys creating stories with a diverse and multi-cultural line up, within the romance, romantic suspense and general thriller and crime genres. When she’s not reading, or writing stories of her own her other passions include practising her French, astrology, fashion, make-up artistry, drawing, spending time at her sewing machine dressmaking, watching make -up and beauty tutorials on YouTube, letter writing and being a mum.

Deadly Legends
A Boxed Set feat. Silent Echoes and Silent Obsession
by Melissa Bourbon
Genre: Romantic Suspense
National Bestselling author Melissa Bourbon brings dark twists to two Latin-American urban legends guaranteed to keep you up into the wee hours. With riveting suspense, sigh-worthy romances with heart-stopping heroes, beautiful writing, and characters that jump off the page, these thrilling romantic suspense novels will have you believing in curses and ghosts. 
For the first time, Silent Echoes and Silent Obsession are together in this boxed set. Get ready for a thrill-ride…
Silent Echoes 
Something deadly waits in the shadows…
On a Texas night twelve years ago, Vic Vargas kissed Delaney West so deeply that she almost came apart. Later that same night, evil crept into Delaney’s room as she slept – and everything in their world fell apart. Now Vic is a rancher living a half-empty life punctuated by one-night stands and a strained relationship with his 11-year-old son.
Then Delaney returns to San Julio, and the past comes rushing back… along with the silent echoes of that night so long ago. Livestock are dying. Some say coyote, but others whisper another darker word. Chupacabra. Bloodsucker.
The past hasn’t disappeared – nor has the instinctive desire that snaps and crackles between Delaney and Vic. And as those emotions ignite, so does the evil that hibernated for the last twelve years. The evil that waited for Delaney to return to San Julio… and to Vic Vargas.
Silent Obsession 
 
Johanna Rios is a woman whose past has come back to haunt her.
The ghost of la Llorona is said to haunt the riverbanks, always searching for her drowned child. She also haunts high school teacher Johanna Rios, whose own mother believed so deeply in the legend she tried to drown her daughters. And now the ghost has become real, a young woman murdered, and the safe world Jo created is falling apart.
Since returning home from his last tour of duty to become a school principal, Ray Vargas has fought his attraction for his employee, the sensual woman who’d once been the girl next door. But the Llorona Killer will not stop until he claims his final victim—Johanna—and Ray will do anything to protect the woman he’s come to love.
With a serial killer out to prove the curse is real, will Ray and Johanna’s future be drowned in the ghostly waters of the past? Or will the power of their love give them the strength to stop a killer…and heal their wounded hearts…?

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY

Absent Shadows Trilogy: Destiny, Sacrifice & Deception

This YA paranormal romance trilogy takes place (predominantly) in Melbourne, Australia but also in the San Francisco Bay Area. The story is completely fictional; however the Melbourne settings are real locations which are some of the oldest parts of Melbourne, namely the Queen Victoria Market and the Flagstaff Gardens.

 

I’d like to share with you a bit of the history of this part of Melbourne so you will understand what inspired me to write this story about ghosts and vampires set in this area.

 

~~***~~

 

A few years ago, I was working in Melbourne around the corner from the Queen Victoria Market, which is not far from the Flagstaff Gardens. One day while out walking at lunchtime, I started sensing that the area was the perfect setting for a story about ghosts and vampires. There had been a strong resurgence in the popularity of vampires and ghosts, and I’d always been keenly interested in both. In fact, I’d done a late night ghost tour through the area just a few years earlier. It was on this ghost tour that I first learned the history of the cemetery under the market’s carpark.

When I set out to write the story, I decided to do a bit of research on the area. Of course I headed straight to Google and WIKIPEDIA. I read numerous accounts of the market and the gardens, and although not everything I read was consistent, it seemed the general consensus was that the area we now call the Flagstaff Gardens was originally referred to as Burial Hill and was the site of Melbourne’s first burials.

 

As Melbourne grew, the Melbourne Cemetery was built in the area that is now the Queen Victoria Market. This cemetery was used from 1837 until the early 1850’s. Then, in the early 1850’s, what is now referred to as the Melbourne General Cemetery was built.

In the early 1900’s there were plans to expand the Queen Victoria Market, so a number of bodies (approximately 900) were exhumed from the Old Melbourne Cemetery and relocated to other cemeteries. However poor records, deterioration of headstones and numerous other factors prevented the remaining bodies from being exhumed.

To this day, there is no doubt that a large number of bodies remain under the market carpark, but the exact number seems somewhat debatable. Some accounts suggested that there were originally over 10,000 bodies in the Old Melbourne Cemetery. However, another report suggests that due to a fire in 1864 which destroyed early records, the 10,000 bodies cannot be verified. So the question remains; are 9,000+ bodies still there today? Or is it a lesser number?

Regardless of the exact number, there is no argument that not all the bodies were exhumed. Therefore, when you walk across the carpark, you are walking over the top of thousands of bodies that reside as little as six feet below.

Now, with the Melbourne City Council in the midst of massive redevelopment plans for the area, the controversy lives on.

You can read all about the history by simply Googling “Old Melbourne Cemetery”. It makes for some very interesting reading, indeed.

 

 

THE BOOKS:

Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance

 

 

Series Description:

Set in one of the oldest parts of Melbourne, Australia, the Absent Shadows Trilogy is the story of nineteen year-old Lili McIntyre who decides to trade her California summer for a mid-winter visit to Australia in hope of finding inspiration and direction in the country where her father was born.

 

But when she arrives in Melbourne, the first thing she finds is the last thing she’s looking for—a brooding man who makes her heart race every time she sees him. Against her better judgement, Lili finds herself drawn into a relationship that tests her very beliefs about life, reality and fantasy.

 

As the story progresses, Lili must learn how to follow her destiny as she faces some of the hardest decisions of her life, makes incredible sacrifices, and encounters deception from places where it is least expected.

 

Follow Lili’s journey across the Pacific Ocean as she travels from the San Francisco Bay Area to Melbourne, and all across Australia.

 

Destiny Excerpt:

 

Sometimes, when something bad happens, time seems to slow to a crawl.

Like that time I was running to visit my friend who lived down the street. I was only about ten at the time, but it seemed like it was yesterday. I remember exactly how it felt as I ran down that street toward her house. And how, when I was only part way there, I stepped on an acorn and my foot rolled out from under me. As I fell, the pavement got closer and closer to my face—in horrible slow-motion. I hit the ground with my hands stretched out in front of me, scraping the skin off both palms. They barely bled but man they hurt like crazy.

Yes, I could replay that memory like a slow-motion movie in my head even now—years later.

But this … well, this wasn’t like that.

What happened next was like a series of still photos. Tom flew out of the bedroom in a blur, but stopped just long enough for the image of his face to be burnt into my mind. His eyes were no longer soft brown, but were instead a glowing red, and his normally tanned complexion was now pallid grey. But what really stood out was the blood that ran down from the corner of his mouth.

Then I heard Sam’s voice—loud and harsh. ‘Go!’

Tom was gone and I heard the door slam.

I closed my eyes for no more than a long blink—it couldn’t have been more than a second—but when I opened them, Sam was in the bedroom, bending over Claire. Was he doing something to her neck? She was so still.

I ran to the doorway but stopped short of going in. I couldn’t draw a breath to scream or talk. I just stood there, frozen.

Marc Sanderson’s love of stories grew up alongside his love of science and history. Unable to decide which was most fascinating, he studied science, literature, history, education and law, all of which pop up in his writing. Currently a full-time writer of romance and fantasy, he loves finding ways to infuse his passion for learning and the natural world into his stories. When he’s not reading or writing, he can be found studying the ecology of the local streams, restoring the eelgrass beds of the local estuary, hiking up mountains, watching documentaries or indulging in romantic comedies. Lately he’s taken up cooking as a hobby and is trying diligently not to poison his wife.
What is an “eco-romance”? These are contemporary romances with ecological themes running through them. I hope the stories will help raise awareness of the vital part our environment plays in all our lives and convey the urgent need to reform environmental policy on the federal, state and local levels.

gone. Vanished are all her hopes and dreams.

destiny comes in many forms, and when Aurora moves to a new house,
she discovers that the previous owner has never left. The ghostly

I
get so much satisfaction in the writing process. I take care to
choose just the right word, to make sure each sentence has the right
cadence. I appreciate other writers who respect the craft in this
way, and I hope my readers do so with me. Writing is a need, a desire
for expression, and springs from well within my subconscious mind.
Thoughts rise up, scenes rise up and blend in with the over-arching
story. These thoughts emerge whenever they want to and wherever I am
and probably not when I am at the computer. The computer is for the
craft, the technique. The thoughts come during walks, or while
driving the car, or at the grocery store. I am the willing recipient
of these thoughts and so they seek me out. It’s a mystery this
business and art of writing and it keeps me enthralled.

Athina
Paris lives in South Africa but spent her formative years in
Mozambique, where she was born and went to school. Years in convents
and boarding schools prompted a deep curiosity and the need to
liberate her mind, which quickly developed into an avid interest in
reading and storytelling and led to a lifelong obsession with the
written word and books. By fifteen she had read most of the classics,
discovered ancient civilizations and became fascinated with various
mythologies; a love she has kept to this day.

 

 

Raised
in a culture where meddling is seen as ‘caring’, she became a
spectator of human nature. Quiet and shy, she preferred recording
conduct rather than participating in what she calls familial mass
hysteria, and so built a treasure-trove of relationship observations
from which she eventually drew backgrounds for the characters in her
romantic novels.

 

She
studied Interior Design, but soon felt the pull of her dormant talent
and turned to Creative Writing, as she realised the significance of
those notebooks packed with ideas. She soon followed it with
Scriptwriting.

 

 

Set
in faraway and exotic places, Athina’s epic romantic work takes her
characters on voyages of self-discovery while dealing with
catastrophic love lives and an imperfect world.

 

A
stint as a high school English teacher polished her skills. However,
she has recently vacated the position to concentrate on her
professional goals of writing, editing and proofreading.

I
write historical romance fiction novels set in the 1800s forward with
a twist of suspense. All of my characters and stories that are
portrayed in my books are fictitious. I am a native of Texas, but I
have traveled through out America and beyond. As a dreamer, I love to
visit new places where I can imagine a heroine meeting a hero in a
special way. I’m an avid reader of (all sorts) and I love to
write.

 

 

I
married my high school sweat-heart and after having raised three sons
plus one daughter, our love for each other remains unshaken. Now we
enjoy our eight grandchildren. We can send them home, but we’re
always happy for their return.

 

 

Outside
of my family activities, I sing with the Silver Belles at my church
and hate to miss even one practice. The local chapter of RWA is also
at the top of my list of pleasures. It keeps me grounded with craft
and connected with other writers.

 

 

Most
of all, I enjoy going fishing with my husband. Give me a pole and
leave me alone to bask in the sun, listening to water gurgle along
the riverbanks while allowing my mind to float away to some distance
place. Ah! Perfect.

  1. What is your favorite color?

 

Blue and grey. I love the ocean and those colors remind me of it.

 

  1. Favorite holiday?

 

The one where I get a nap! 😉

 

  1. Most embarrassing moment?

 

Oh geez, let me see if I can keep this short. I worked in the kitchens of the MTC in provo during my years at BYU. One time we threw away a TON of cream of wheat into a single garbage can. When I went to take it outside, I couldn’t lift the garbage into the compactor. Well, being the strong independent woman I was, I refused to go in and ask for help. So I leaned the lip of the garbage against the compactor and then hefted it up from the bottom wheels. When I got it up, I shook it hard to release the bag of garbage. The problem? The wheels weren’t attached! So the whole garbage can slid into the compactor. As I stood there in shock, another worker, a boy, came out. Much to my embarrassment, we ended up climbing into the compactor together, slipping and sliding in all that nasty gunk (don’t even ask how it smelled!) to retrieve the can. Just as we climbed out a delivery truck arrived, allowing even more people to see my humiliation. *forehead slap* I’ll never forget that day. It’s burned into my memory with a laser!

 

  1. Dream vacation?

 

Ooh. I love the ocean and heat. So anywhere tropical. Hawaii has been a favorite so far, but I’m open to anywhere warm and sandy with a great pina colada!

 

  1. Something unique about you?

 

Hmm… I’m not a terribly interesting person, but I can say that I was an opera major at college! I studied Vocal Performance in opera/classical music for 3 years before I got married and had to leave BYU. I ended up finishing my degree online with a Creative Writing degree, which is how I ended up as an author. But I still sing on the side.

 

  1. What one food will you NOT eat?

 

Oysters or snails. *cue shiver* can’t do it. Nope, nope, nope.

 

  1. All-time favorite book?

 

Okay, that’s hard. I have favorite books in completely separate genres that I adore! But I will say that I have one book I read over and over again. It’s called “A Kiss with Scandal” and it’s by Janelle Daniels. I LOVE books full of romance and kissing, with some action on the side. And this book delivers that.

 

 

  1. Writing snack of choice?

 

I actually don’t snack while I write. But it’s not uncommon for me to treat myself to something sweet and chocolate when I’m done!

 

  1. Top hobby you do when not writing?

 

Back to the singing. I perform some and I dabble in arranging and writing, so that’s definitely where I head when I’m not on the computer.

 

  1. Favorite Animal?

 

Baby animals. Anything cute and fluffy and little. 🙂

twenty years, they moved from town to town every few months. They
paid in cash. They kept only what they could carry. But 26-year-old
Charlene Bailey and her father were a family, complete and happy.
Until a woman stabbed him to death in a New Orleans café, right in
front of Charlene’s eyes, screaming in a language she didn’t

To find out who she is, she’ll have to find out what they were
running from. And to discover that, she’ll have to find someone she
can trust.
As a charter boat
captain out of Key West, Marshall Crow has seen his share of reckless

one of them. He never thought he’d put the skills he learned in the
Navy to work smuggling a stranger, but he’s drawn to her the same
way she’s drawn to the truth. And through the dark waters of the
Florida straits and the narrow streets of Havana, the danger that
awaits them is far too vicious to face alone.

knew the romantic helicopter ride up to the remote peak of Whisky
Mountain was a bad idea. But she never expected it to snatch her
fiancé from her—or destroy her life. A few fiery seconds turn a
postcard-perfect morning in the Canadian Rockies into a snowy hell,
thirteen thousand feet above sea level. And in the midst of grief and
agony, Holly catches sight of a scene in the ice that will haunt her
until she can return and discover the truth.

 

 

Oliver
Nelson could see the stranger had a mystery inside her. The scars on
her face, the pain in her eyes, the insistence that he teach her
completely alone—no one 
needs to
learn rock climbing, or so he thought. But the more he gets to know
her, the more he admires her drive, her ingenuity, and that little
edge of recklessness. If she can trust him with her story, he’s
ready to follow her wherever her heart takes her. 

 

 

But
nature’s deadly beauty isn’t the only danger waiting for them on
Whisky Mountain. To survive, Oliver and Holly will have to move
fast—and think faster . . .

swallowed by the Yucatan jungle, rediscovered only now after hundreds

show the same mysterious carvings that puzzled archaeologists at
Agulinta? Her search for answers pulls her to Mexico’s southern

jungle and mountain, over waters home to crocodiles and drug runners,
and into uncomfortably close quarters with a man whose need to wander

Carter Logan’s work as a nature photographer has given him the

all the time he’s traveled, he’s never been drawn to anyone the

perseverance through dirt, sweat, and danger to the heart of the
ancient temple fires through him. But when the two of them are left
alone and stranded in a vicious wilderness, their connection might
prove the difference between life and death . . . if the secrets of
the past don’t come between them first.
