London Calling by @Anna_Elliott #Regency #Romance

Romance and Treason in Regency England


It is the autumn of 1809, and Susanna Ward's life is more perfect than she could ever have dared hope. She is reconciled with her estranged family and engaged to the man she loves, Lord James Ravenwood. But across the English Channel, Britain's war with the Emperor Napoleon still rages. And when a chance letter arrives from London, Susanna learns that James has secretly allowed himself to be drawn into the shadowy world of espionage and intrigue. To be with James, Susanna travels to London--and is soon caught up in a dangerous operation to uncover a ring of French spies and a traitor within the British War Office.

Susanna will risk her life to protect both her country and the man she loves. And yet as she sees James torn between love for her and duty to King and country, she realizes that the greatest danger may be to her own heart.

Set against the glittering backdrop of a Regency London Season, London Calling is a cozy mystery, appropriate for all ages. It is approximately 61,000 words or 244 pages in length.

Although London Calling can be read alone, the story builds on the events of Susanna and the Spy.

Reviews of London Calling:

"…a fun adventure, with a great historical backdrop in the Napoleonic wars. All in all, a wonderful cozy mystery."



"I thought it a fun read, both as an adventure and a sweet romance. I hope there will be more to come."



"This book was an enjoyable diversion, and put a fresh face on the regency period. I liked it as much as the first Susanna story."

Male Wanted by Betty Jo Schuler - "Sweet, funny, fabulous read"

A Personal Ad Goes Oh-So Wrong!

Taylor Gayle advertises in The Town Crier for a male to date, but Max Stuart misprints her ad to indicate she’s looking for a “sadomasochistic male to mate” and includes her address. To atone for his mistakes, Max becomes her live-in protector. Now, who’s going to protect this high school librarian from the unbelievably sexy newspaper editor? And who’s going to save Max from this feisty Plain Jane’s charms?

Taylor Gayle names her plants, dulls her hair with a brown rinse, and envies her fraternal twin sister of her beauty. Max Stuart plays with noisy toys, brings home his sister's dog Muttso, and sets fire to Taylor's kitchen. The elevator in their apartment building is an accident-waiting-to-happen, but the landlady is more concerned with whether Taylor and Max are "cohabitating." Glorious Apartments are as misnamed as Progressive High School and Boomtown, Ohio. Nothing is what it seems in this slaphappy romance.

Max finds Taylor in her long skirts and oversized specs as tantalizing as a package in plain brown wrap with no return address. She thinks he looks like a CEO but can’t handle the simplest task. She thinks he’s short on ambition. He thinks she should relax. She wants a serious man. He wants a fun-loving woman. They want one another.

Neither are what they seem. But while these two fake their ways into each other’s lives, they find a love that’s real.

Reviews:

"This was a romance with substance as it made a statement about prejudices and finding your own true identity. With that philosophical slant, it was also humorous and endearing. Both characters are very likeable and the family dynamics realistic. It was a fun afternoon read that got me thinking." ~The Book Runner, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

"Taylor and Max have great chemistry and the story is sweet, funny and a fabulous read. I highly recommend it!"

Wild Innocence by Candace McCarthy #MustRead #Historical

Native American Historical Romance



A Pampered Belle…

Devastated by her fiancé's betrayal, young Rachel Dempsey fled a life of privilege in Baltimore's high society for a hard-scrabble existence at her father's mission on the rugged shores of Lake Superior. There she tended the wounded brought to the mission's infirmary and vowed no man would ever touch her heart again—certainly not Black Hawk, the disturbingly sensual Ojibwa warrior she was tenderly nursing back to health.

A Fearless Brave…

Black Hawk had never allowed a woman to distract him from the dark dream of vengeance he had harbored against his hated Sioux enemy since boyhood. But soon the warmth in Rachel's eyes began melting the ice that shrouded his soul, and when danger threatened the mission, the fierce warrior spirited away the beautiful white angel to the safety of his own village. There Rachel discovered a new peace among the gentle Ojibwa, while the tenderness in Black Hawk's fiery touch ignited a sudden passion—convincing them both that they shared a love as bold and timeless as the untamed plains of the wild Northwest.

What readers are saying:

"…touched my heart and transported me back through time to an early period in our country's growth. This is a book that I will gladly place on my "to read again" shelf."

"I did not want it to end! I especially liked that she based her Native American romance somewhere other than the plains. I had begun to wonder if there were any writers out there that knew about the Woodland's Indians."

"…a wonderful escape from the normal, everyday chaos."

Eternity by Tmonique Stephens - Paranormal Romance - @Tmoniquebooks

ROMAN NICOLIS

Cursed for 2,000 years, he has tracked his lover’s soul through each reincarnation only to lose her horribly every time. Reclaiming their love is their only salvation. He’s been her friend, her father, her neighbor, but never again her lover … until now.

STELLA WALKER

A late night walk home throws her into the path of a killer. The last thing she remembers are the deep blue eyes of the man trying to kill her—and the first things she sees after a seven-day coma are the same blue eyes in the handsome face of the man hired to protect her. Is he truly the owner of a security firm assigned to protect her, or the man who wants to finish her off? Is it fear she feels when Roman touches her, or the memory of something sweeter?

Past secrets haunt them. An angry demon stalks them.

Roman will do anything to recover what they had. Though Stella’s ruined childhood has made her close her heart and body to any man, he must get past the walls around her to gain her love and trust, for it will take their union to defeat an unexpected enemy sent from the Egyptian Gods. A man Romans respects, and Stella trusts.

TWO HEARTS, ONE SOUL, FOR ALL ETERNITY

"This book had everything you could want...action, love, and twists and turns that kept me reading. I can't wait to read more books by Stephens and I highly recommend this book. It is very suspenseful and action packed."

"Eternity is romantic, suspenseful and well written. The ancient Egyptian elements are rarely utilized in fiction and the splendor and mystique of that era is a riveting back drop."

Sanctum Angels by Edenmary Black #RomanticSuspense

Book 1 of the Shadow Havens Series

When Priana Grey walks into a bank, she isn't expecting to be taken hostage by a violent thief; nor, is she expecting Detective Joe Cafaris to offer his life for hers. The stepdaughter of fallen angels of the Sanctum, she has concealed her true nature to move among humans for years, but Joe's courage astounds her. Although she knows that falling in love with a human is a disaster, she just can't ignore what she feels.

Joe is a tough loner, cool in the most dangerous situations, but he's not ready for the scorching desire he feels for Priana. He has a million logical reasons to walk away, but his heart wants something else.

Priana's stepbrother, Keirc, warns that she'll find only misery with Joe, yet he guards a perilous secret of his own. His lover, Iridea, is the daughter of Sebastien Galaurus, a ruthless vampire who leads the Demesne, a powerful supernatural haven quite unlike the Sanctum.

When a stunning crisis forces Priana into the heart of the Demesne, a maelstrom explodes in the shadow of supernatural havens on the brink of war, where fallen angels, vampires, weres and daemons call the shots and humans are viewed as critically frail - a place where men and supernaturals can die.

"I would highly recommend Sanctum Angels for a different spin on the Supernatural Universe, a beautiful love story, and just a plain old good new Indie Author to test drive. Kudos! I can't wait for the next book, Sanctum Warriors!"

From the very beginning I truly loved how the story opened up with a simple act of going to the bank that leads into the incredible lives of some of the most amazing characters, human and non-human, alike."

"Sexy, Fun Debut!"


Natasha Raven has a secret. Although she is the bestselling author of erotic fiction, she has never penned a sex scene. Her sister, Liza, was responsible for the sizzle in Natasha’s books – until she passed away only months ago. Now Natasha must write the scenes herself. Trouble is, she hasn't a clue what to write and being a virgin doesn't help. When she is invited to speak at a conference workshop titled 'From Your Sheets to the Page,' Natasha panics. But a suggestive wink from a young hotel staffer named Jace gives her an idea. If she can muster the confidence to have a one night stand with Jace, she just may be able to endure the workshop without feeling a total fraud. But will she go through with it? And is Jace all that he seems?

Review:

"What a fun debut! Room Service is sexy -- um, yeah, you might have guessed by the cheeky cover :) It's also a lot about the joy of loving your work (writing romance), enjoying your community (romance authors and readers) and getting muddled up in life. Underneath all the fun, there are some serious issues, well handled. This novella packs a lot in -- enjoy the ride."
