(The Lost Princesses #0.5)
By Jody Hedlund
Christian YA Historical Romance
Paperback & ebook, 136 Pages
August 13th 2019 by Northern Lights Press
A fierce elite guard. A loyal lady in waiting. They must work together to save three princesses from certain death.
On the verge of dying after giving birth to twins, the queen of Mercia pleads with Lady Felicia to save her infant daughters. With the castle overrun by King Ethelwulf’s invading army, Lady Felicia vows to do whatever she can to take the newborn princesses and their three-year old sister to safety, even though it means sacrificing everything she holds dear, possibly her own life.
Gravely wounded in battle and knowing all is lost to his enemy, the king of Mercia tasks Lance, one of his fiercest elite guards, to protect his family along with keys to an ancient treasure. As Lance makes plans to sneak the princesses out of the capital city, he doesn’t need or want Lady Felicia’s help.
With the dark enemy in pursuit, Lance and Felicia must put aside their differences to outrun King Ethelwulf and prevent him from killing the princesses. In a desperate attempt to hide the young girls, Lance and Felicia agree to a marriage of convenience, a decision that will change their lives—and hearts—forever.

Christian YA Historical
Paperback & ebook, 222 Pages
August 27th 2019 by Northern Lights Press
An ancient key. A secret treasure. And a princess destined to use them both to fight evil and restore peace.
Raised by a noble family, Lady Adelaide has always known she’s an orphan. Little does she realize she’s one of the lost princesses and the true heir to Mercia’s throne…until a visitor arrives at her family estate, reveals her birthright as queen, and thrusts her into a quest for the throne whether she’s ready or not.
Unable to tolerate King Ethelwulf’s cruelty and lawlessness, Christopher Langley left Mercia years earlier, training a group of rebels in neighboring Norland. When he returns home after his mother’s death, he discovers that not only is Adelaide all grown up, but she’s also the rightful queen of Mercia.
When King Ethelwulf discovers Adelaide’s location, he’ll stop at nothing to capture her and the key she holds to the ancient treasure. Christopher is just as determined to protect Adelaide so she can lead the growing rebellion. When feelings ignite between the two old friends, forces threaten to destroy their love and rip them apart forever.

Evermore is one of the best books of the year! I absolutely loved this tale and the whole series! Lady Adelaide was an orphan but always felt something was different about herself. It's not until she's met by a visitor that she learns of her true birthright and learns she is not only one of the lost princesses but also is to be queen. With this new revelation comes danger, for King Ethelwulf is after her and the key to an ancient treasure. However, Christopher Langley comes to Adelaide's aid and protection! Will King Ethelwulf gain the key and Adelaide in the end? Or will Adelaide finally become Queen?

I truly loved this tale, it is just filled with so much adventure, magic, and romance! If you love fairytales and a good romantic trope, than this is the book for you!

Book Blitz ~ Accidental Rebel by Nicole Snow


Accidental Rebel
Nicole Snow
Publication date: September 12th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Accidentally hitched to a dream. Now for the catch…
I didn’t even say “I do.”

One crank call and I’m insta-wife to a tattooed behemoth and mother to his kids.

He’s paying my idiot boss a fortune for the perfect cover.

Because trouble found Miller Rush, and he found me.
A rock hard, overprotective rebel with a cause.

Father of the century.

Abs wound tighter than his attitude, stomping around my house, barking orders.

Something’s got to give, okay?
But it won’t be me.

Not my courage, even when my nosy mother smells drama.

Not my heart set on helping two little angels and their perma-grump dad.

Definitely not my body screaming Mayday because his bedroom eyes are magnets.
Deep breath.

It’s only a few weeks.

It’s only a whole crew of freaky people coming after him.

It’s only pretend and I’m so not letting this Mrs. Rush thing go to my head.

Why didn’t anyone warn me some knots can’t be untied?
From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Nicole Snow – a high stakes marriage mistake with a twist. One hulking superdad hero goes all-in to save his family and the wife he wasn’t supposed to keep. Full-length romance novel with a Happily Ever After sugar rush.
EXCERPT:
(Gwen)
“You okay, Gwen?”
I snap open my eyes at Miller’s question. My fake husband leans against the short wall that separates the entryway from the living room. And to be perfectly honest, he looks like he just stepped out of one of my mother’s books.
Awesome.
Just what I need right now. A brutal reminder of how huge and hot he is, and how he’s probably as sick of this stuff as I am.
His dark hair is cut short, still rumpled from his nap. His black shirt hugs his broad chest like a second skin. So do the black jeans, and even in his socks, you could just eat him up. Whipped cream optional.
The worst part is, it’s a normal, almost boring look. How can that be sexy?
Hell if I know, but it is. Something hums in my veins I’ve never felt before, this heated rush that has far too much to do with Mr. Rush and not the adrenaline attack of the past twenty-four hours.
“Gwen?”
I try to nod. My name rolls off his tongue like warm caramel drips down the side of a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
His bright-blue eyes no longer look so tired, so worn out. Now they have a shine to them.
There’s more, too. He’s concerned. Rightfully so.
This guy and his twins are on the lam. That’s got to bother him deeply. Heck, I’m not even him, this isn’t my mess, and it’s not any easier for me.
If only that were true. Because I went and made it my mess when I let Manny talk me into helping Miller Rush twice.
I push off the door, hating how flustered I must look. “I’m fine. Let’s just eat.”
“Hoped you’d say that. It’s ready.”
He doesn’t have to remind me. My entire house has never smelled this good in my life. It pales even compared to the time I tried to cook a whole turkey dinner for Mother and her happy little M.E. Court team. She wound up rushing to my rescue. Turns out my cooking skills are far more impressive in my head.
Maybe I’m dreaming this. An overly handsome, wildly sexy stranger in my house has just cooked up a fabulous meal from my meagerly supplied cupboards. That’s more than a dream.
It’s a flipping fairy tale.

Book Blitz & Giveaway ~ Focus Lost by Doug Cooper


 photo Focus Lost_zpsah3umsq9.jpg



Thriller
Date Published: April 2019
Publisher: Rare Bird Books


 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

The line between passion and obsession runs through us all.

Levi Combs never planned to rocket to stardom.

Eva Florez knew he would the moment she saw him.

Gabe Adams didn’t want anything to do with celebrities.

But after Gabe’s sister sells his photos of Levi with a young starlet to a tabloid website, their lives become intertwined forever, bound by rage and retribution.

Blending the nuance and insight of literary fiction with the big-screen magic of a Hollywood thriller, Focus Lost whisks readers into a world of temptation, indulgence, and revenge, daring them to take a bite of the forbidden fruit.



 Excerpt

The road twists and turns away from Los Angeles. A man and girl ride inside an open Jeep. The vehicle slows and bends onto a grassy lane. Trees line both sides, connecting above, cloistering the path. Branches smack against the grill and windshield, raining leaves on the passengers, actor Levi Combs and young starlet Emily James.

A blonde ponytail sprouts from Emily’s head. She rubs the debris from her bare, milky shoulders and legs and swats at the swarm of gnats swirling through the cab. “How did you ever find this place?”

“Driving late at night.” Levi downshifts into first gear to navigate the uneven terrain. Strands of his black curly hair bounce against the red bandana wrapped around his head. He nudges up the black Ferragamo sunglasses resting on the tip of his nose. “You’ll see, you need places like this to escape the cameras.”

Even at only seventeen, Emily already knows that. She had been a working actor since she was three. Levi didn’t get his break until he was twenty. “But what do you do out here?” Emily says, leaning toward the middle to avoid more of the invasive underbrush. She latches onto Levi’s forearm as he continues to work the gearshift.

“Just roam,” Levi says, powering the Jeep through the brush. A dilapidated farmhouse and barn appear ahead. He drives past the buildings into an overgrown orchard. Wild plants and grass extend up through the decaying branches spotted with leaves but bearing no fruit. “Solitude is your only friend in our business. Everyone either wants a share of what you have or to keep you from getting theirs.” He increases speed, swerving between the dying trees. The thick weeds and fallen branches scrape against the undercarriage.

Emily clutches the safety bar. “Shouldn’t you slow down?”

Levi accelerates, passing the last row of trees. “Hang on.”

The weeded field drops off into a canyon fifty yards ahead. Panic seizes Emily. “Come on. What are you doing? Just stop.” The space between the Jeep and the canyon decreases. Shrieking, Emily closes her eyes and curls up into a ball on the seat.

Levi stomps the breaks. The Jeep skids to a halt. Levi and Emily thrust forward. The seatbelts tighten and yank them back into the seats. The edge of the canyon appears just beyond the hood. A cloud of dust passes over them. Levi kills the Jeep. The sound of the engine fades into the fog blanketing the bottom of the canyon. Nearby rocky peaks poke through the mist like islands in a white sea. Unbuckling his seatbelt, Levi stands and looks out above the windshield. “Great view, huh?”

Emily uncoils and opens her eyes to the tranquil, majestic setting. She rips off the seatbelt and launches from the Jeep. “You’re an asshole.” She stomps to the edge of the canyon and stares into the emptiness.

Levi trails after her. “Relax. You weren’t in danger. I told you, I come here all the time.”

“But what if we had rolled over?” Emily asks, the fear revealing the young girl she never allows herself to be.

Stepping up next to her, Levi bumps his hip playfully into hers. “But we didn’t.”

“Still,” Emily says, accentuating her pouting with a little girl’s voice. “Why do you have to push everything?”

“That’s funny, coming from the queen of the fast lane. You know I wouldn’t let anything happen to myself. The world would be such a far drearier place without me.” Levi wraps his arm around her, wiggling it to loosen her up. “There’s a waterfall a short hike from here.” He spins her toward him. “What do you say we go for a swim?”

“I suppose.” A restrained smile creeps out through her dissipating anger. “But I’m still mad at you.”

Book Blitz ~ Chasing Fireflies by Claudia Burgoa


Chasing Fireflies
Claudia Y. Burgoa
Publication date: September 9th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
USA Today Bestselling author Claudia Burgoa brings you an emotional and inspirational story that will tug on your heartstrings.
The first time I met Oliver Tanner he was five years old.

I was four.

That day he was entrusted to my keep.

He was as large and loud as a church mouse.

That day I taught him how fireflies were magic with the persistence of a person.

That’s what I loved about them.

No matter how far they strayed,

they remembered where they came from and who their family was.
After high school, he joined the army and left Knox Ridge.
Years later, the town had changed.

My dreams were shattered.

We had nothing left.

I had forgotten all about the magic of the fireflies.

Until he came back to town.

Everything about him was comforting.

He brought some light to my darkness,

But I knew the light could only last for so long.

Fireflies only stay for the summer.

He had outgrown our small town.

It was time for me to stop chasing fireflies.
Don’t miss out on this stunning, second-chance friends to lovers romance.
This full-length novel was originally published in the Cards of Love collection as a novella. It has been revised with additional scenes.
EXCERPT:
I decide to bring up Ollie, preferring to deal with that than the topic of my sister.
“Did you hear that Oliver Tanner is back in town?”
She squints. “Why does that name sound familiar?”
“Josey Tanner’s son,” I say, unamused by her attitude.
Paige wrinkles her nose. “Little Ollie AWOL? Showing his face back here? That idiot?”
I hate when she refers to him as that. I hold back a frustrated groan. I don’t need more reminders of how he left me here—embarrassed and heartbroken.
It’s not like they were friends or anything, I think sarcastically. Then again, she’s always the first person to remind me that he broke my heart—twice.
“Yeah, that one,” I say dryly, regretting the subject. “He’s staying at the old Tanner place while he decides what to do with his life.”
“He’s going to f*** up my hydrangeas, isn’t he?” Paige says.
“So not the point,” I say.
“Is he as hot as I remember him?” she asks.
I smirk. Oliver is good looking. He has tousled brown hair, which is thick and lustrous. His eyes are a mesmerizingly deep brown, and flecks of amber light dance throughout them. Like fireflies. His face is strong and well defined. His features look like they were molded from granite. He has thick eyebrows, which slopes downward in a severe expression.
My stomach does a few flips as I remember his playful smile. My body shivers, remembering the tingles that his strong hands created when they touched me. They were rough but warm. And when those beefy arms wrapped around my body, it felt perfect.
His body was toned and inviting as he hugged me. Everything about him was comforting. His voice was deep and rich. We saw each other a couple of days ago, but I’m still thinking about him.


Author Bio:
Claudia is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author. She lives in Colorado, working for a small IT. She has three children and manages a chaotic household of two confused dogs, and a wonderful husband who shares her love of all things geek. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.

Even the most controlled men have a breaking point.

I just met mine.
Why mess with perfection?

You don’t.

Unless perfection messes with you.

Thriller, Romantic Suspense, Mystery 

"Let
me tell you about my day so far. I’ll begin by telling you
about waking up in my Marbella villa to find a dead girl in
my bed; about being interrogated by the Spanish police – or
hombres purporting to be the Spanish police; about learning
that I’m going to have my kneecaps shattered by the
former Chief of Staff of the Provisional IRA. That is, if he can
find me before the godfather of the Andalucian Russian mafia
hunts me down. And not only that; it’s not yet ten o’clock
and I’ve taken up smoking and have drunk half a bottle of
brandy before I’ve even had breakfast." Richie Malone is
an old-school philanderer, misogynistic playboy and writer with an
undeniable charm. Although he has yet to pen anything to attract
literary acclaim using his own name, he has made a fortune writing
pornographic novels under a female pseudonym. But now his troubles
are just beginning. He needs answers, and he needs them fast. Just
who is this dead girl? How did she get here? And why his bed? And, of
course, did he kill her? Malone finds himself caught in the middle of
a turf war between Irish racketeers, the Russian Mafia and a
Columbian cartel. And so, he loses the plot. But can he get it back
before he loses everything … including his life?

time. His main interests are Rugby Union, cricket, history, and horse
riding.
