Can they work through what’s happened in their individual pasts to create a relationship that will last?

Thursday, June 27th, 2019

 

 

Britney Mills was born in Utah but
parts of her heart lie in Boston, Washington D.C. and Germany. Her love of
writing began with the third grade book her teacher assigned her to write and
she spent hours hidden behind her mother’s couch writing pages and pages about
knights and castles. Now she writes about romance. Go figure.
When she’s not mothering her 4 small children, writing or reading, she’s
probably out playing a sport, going on a hike, or binge watching a murder mystery
series. The way to her heart is through homemade chocolate chip cookies and
five minutes peace.

 

A self-made billionaire, his real
estate agent and three weeks to find the right property.
Jackson Walker hasn’t had the best family life. Growing up in the foster system
in Australia, it wasn’t until he met his college football coach that he
understood what a normal family looked like. When he gets the call that Coach
has passed away, he returns to California for the funeral and to find a place
to honor the man. 

Hailey Montgomery threw herself into real estate soon after breaking up with
her boyfriend nearly five years ago. She’s been working to build a name for
herself and when the chance to make partner at her firm becomes available, she
jumps at the chance. But the only way to achieve that distinction is to find a
commercial property for the guy she’s nicknamed ‘Golden Boy’ from all the
stories her father told about him. 

As spending time together brings them closer, the trust between them is called into
question. Can they work through what’s happened in their individual pasts to
create a relationship that will last?

 

Snippet:
Hailey
brushed her mom’s hair for a moment and then asked, “What will you do now?”
Her mom sat up and looked at her. “What
do you mean?”
“I mean, you and Dad did everything
together. You traveled with him to so many games. What will you do with your
time now?”
Her mom gave her a look of irritation.
“I loved your father dearly, and I am so grateful for all the years we had
together. But don’t think for a minute that I’ll sit and have a pity
party.”
Hailey raised an eyebrow. “What do you
call this?” Her mom swatted her across the shoulder.

 

 

“It’s okay to cry when you’ve lost the
love of your life. And I’ll probably have moments like that down the road. But
I’ve got you, Junior and Penny to worry about.” She gave Hailey a half-smile
and said, “When you get married, you’ll understand what it’s like. That you
give up parts of yourself to gain so many others. I’m not the same person I was
before I met your father, and I’m grateful for that journey.”

and Fate
Dragons
of Galicia Series Book 1

Simone Pond
Genre:
Epic YA Fantasy
 
In
Simone Pond’s captivating new fantasy series, a peasant girl
embraces her dragon slayer destiny, calling on the legendary power of
her family’s bloodline to conquer an evil kingdom and kill every
last dragon in Galicia.
Unknowing
descendant of a legendary dragon slayer, Evelyn is convinced that
getting out of her quaint yhamlet is the answer to finding true love
and happiness. But she seems destined to work on her mother’s farm,
while the other girls present themselves before the gallant Prince
Kieran in his quest to find a lady-in-waiting.
When
the prince finally takes notice of Evelyn, he’s smitten and chooses
her above all the others. Evelyn is elated about living in Verubri
Castle and the possibility of marriage. But her happiness is quickly
squelched when the prince invites Evelyn’s arch rival, Ciara, to
join them.
Before
traveling north, Evelyn discovers her dragon slayer ancestry,
something she knows must be concealed from Prince Kieran who
would consider it treason against his kingdom. But the only way to
survive the treacherous journey is to expose herself and possibly
ruin her future and even end her life.
The
Dragons of Galicia series is set in a world inspired by Celtic
legends. Fire and Fate leads directly into the next book in the

Fire and Chains
Dragons
of Galicia Series Book 2
 
In the second book of the
vibrantly depicted Dragons of Galicia Series, Evelyn of Gorias rises
to her dragon slayer calling as she fights to conquer a kingdom of
deceit, betrayal, and powerful dragons.
Though Evelyn survived the journey
across the mountain ranges, the challenges
are just beginning. Verubri Castle holds dark secrets, Prince Kieran
is a tyrant, and Ciara is resolute on destroying Evelyn and seducing
the prince.
When a
dragon nearly burns down an entire village, Evelyn must go after the
beast. But this won’t be easy, not when the prince has her heavily
guarded. Evelyn’s hope wains, until she encounters a stranger who
changes the course of everything.
With the looming threat of the
entire clan of Galician Dragons being reawakened, Evelyn must hurry
to save the kingdom, while Ciara aims to rule it. To accomplish their
goals, they must defeat Prince Kieran. In their individual struggles
to conquer and prevail, Evelyn and Ciara face external and internal
demons they never imagined possible.
 
 
Fire
and Blood
Dragons
of Galicia Series Book 3
 
In
the final book of the Dragons of Galicia Series, every turn is
fraught with dangerous threats in the quest to save the kingdom.
Narrowly
escaping the castle to be captured by a dragon is only the beginning
of Evelyn’s problems. The list of opponents grows as she battles
Ciara, Prince Kieran’s army, and
more dragons.
With
the neighboring villages being burned and pillaged, Evelyn must pull
together her own army of dragon warriors to fight the prince and his
knights. As her love for Doran
deepens, she’ll do anything to ensure he stays alive, even at the
cost of going to battle without him.
As
the war reaches an explosive peak, both Evelyn and Ciara face deadly
consequences. And the only way to save the north from total
destruction is for Evelyn to trust her most deceitful adversary,
Ciara. If the two don’t join forces, all will be lost.
