#SeriesStarter Shadows of Jane- Amy Hale


Colt Henderson is a man who lives for the moment. His past has taught him that life is unpredictable and often disappointing. A confirmed bachelor, he believes that love only exists in fairy tales.

She’s lost, scared, and can’t remember a thing about her past or her identity. She senses all is not as it should be, but without her memory, how does she know what to fear and what to trust? Because of her status as a Jane Doe, she names herself Jane and works to put her life back together. In the process she learns that she possesses unique abilities that certain people will kill for.

Fate throws Colt and Jane together, but they both have a lot to learn about forgiveness and acceptance. Colt’s determination and Jane’s remarkable gifts will send them on a journey they never expected. To survive they will need each other, but sometimes facts are scarier than fiction, and the truth is better left unknown.

I don’t know what it was about this book but it had pulled in from the very beginning. Colt just wanted to get away for a while when he had a knock on his door and then the girl that was on the other side fainted in his arms and their magical journey starts there.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Since childhood, best-selling and award-winning author Amy Hale has been creating exceptional stories that summon a whirlwind of emotions and inspiration unto the reader. She loves creating characters and worlds from nothing but her imagination and a few glasses of wine. Her popular paranormal series The Shadows Trilogy has earned multiple awards, as have the Havenwood Falls books, of which she is a participating author. Her love of the written word has not only resulted in her writing some of her reader’s favorite adventures, but has also manifested itself in the form of some seriously overloaded bookshelves. She’s convinced it’s not a sickness.

She debuted her first fiction novel in 2015 after retiring from 13 years of non-fiction writing for various online entities. For the last couple of decades, she’s also carried the titles of Laundry Goddess, Chef, Butt Wiper, Soother of Temper Tantrums, and in more recent years, Moderator of Sarcastic Eye-rolls and Sass. She resides in Illinois with her husband and two grown children who claim they are never moving out. Regardless, they are the center of her universe, although her cat believes otherwise.

If she had any spare time, she’d love music, photography, watching Mystery Science Theater 3000 with her family, and long rides on the back of her husband’s motorcycle.

#WotrAttendingAuthor #SeriesStarter One Ride- Chelsea Camaron

Review by Twinsie Dee

USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

#WOTRAttendingAuthor #SeriesStarter Blood Lust -Tricia Anderson



She doesn’t believe she has a soul.

She believes it was stolen from her when that bastard turned her into the creature she is now.

But little does she know, she does. What is there isn’t dark and twisted, defiled by the lust for blood. She is pure and loving, with a body and attitude that arouses me every moment of the day. And I will move universes and defy my father and mother to make her into something I’m worthy of loving, someone that will stay by my side through eternity.

I will fight the forces of the gods to make her mine. I won’t stop until she belongs to me forever. And how am I, just a mere fighter, going to do that?

Because, baby, I’m a god.

When a vampire tries to feed on a MMA fighter during a wild night after he won his fight she gets way more then she could have ever bargaining for when she ended up with the God of War in her bed. This was an amazing roller coaster with ups downs, and gasping moments that will have you biting your lip and not wanting to put this book down.

#WOTRAttendingAuthor #Standalone The Thorns on His Rose- Marie Piper



A spicy Christmas novella.

Ohio. December, 1860.

Sheriff Charlie Calcut can count on two things every Christmas: his Mother feeding him until his pants don’t fit, and endless teasing about his bachelorhood. Not this year. To appease his mother, he wrote letters home crafting a fake fiancee. But now he’s expected to bring a real live woman home for Christmas, and the only one he can trust with this crazy plan is pants-wearing, hard-living Rose Hawthorne, better known as Thorny Rose.

There’s a war coming, and Rose means to be long gone on the way to Oregon before it reaches Ohio. So she can’t resist Charlie’s offer to help her on her way, and to have one last holiday full of home cooking and a loving family–even if it’s not her own.

Christmas festivities and cold nights pull them together with a passion neither expected, but is that enough to build a life upon? And when the whole world is going dark, can love be the light?

Charlie was a local sheriff who needed someone to pretend to be his wife to go home for Christmas. Well lucky for Rose she got to be that girl, and not only did she agree to it but she got more than she ever thought she could bargained for.

#AttendingAuthor #WOTR19 #SeriesStarter Forever Kinda Love-Clara Stone


The day Carrigan lost her mother, she gained a new best friend. But she never expected the charming boy-next-door from the wealthy family to become anything other than her confidant and strength. Ten years later, Heath’s become exactly that—more.

But Ace can’t give in to her secret crush, can’t let herself feel what it’s like to be loved by him in return. Not when her entire future is at risk. Not when she houses an unexpected, deadly secret that could destroy it all.

The thing is, Heath Lovelly isn’t one to be kept in the dark. And shouldn’t you live life to the fullest, even as that life runs out?

When your 8 years old you never figured you will find your best friend in a hospital the day that tragedy struck her life. For Ace and Heath that is what happens fate brought them together and from that point on they were best friends, but when Heath released that his feelings for Ace are more then just as friends that when his life gets a litter more tricky. This is an amazing story of how fate will bring two people together and give them a hell of a ride.

Clara Stone writes YA/NA Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance stories and is a complete sucker for sweet, memorable kisses. She strongly believes that true love conquers EVERYTHING, along with a tub of Ice cream! 

When she isn’t reading or writing or dancing, much to the embarrassment of her husband and two kids, she’s probably watching Supernatural and The Walking Dead. So, if she sounds like your cup of syrup to your pancakes (or waffles… no favorites here), then give her a “Follow” to any number of social media kingdoms she’s built and stay updated of her upcoming releases, book sales, and book recommendations! 

 

#wotr19 #attendingauthor #novella -The Bakery by T.M. Cromer

45DEE90C-C131-4DF7-B579-8713DA314799
    
Addie Jones was a woman with a plan. Or at least she had been until the manager she’d hired for her bakery embezzled all her funds and absconded to parts unknown. Now she’s facing ruin and her number one enemy, Math. With only a few short months left to turn her finances around, she needs to find a new slogan to live by. Her current catchphrase “Don’t make me math” simply won’t do. 

Vaughn McAdams agreed to do a solid for his cousin and help her bestie recover from her recent financial losses. He hadn’t counted on Fate smacking him upside the head with a rolling pin, or the zany baker who now calls herself his boss. Her inability to balance a checkbook has him almost as frustrated as her insistence on keeping their relationship strictly professional. 

Whenever they’re together, things start heating up, and it isn’t just the bakery ovens. Can Vaughn convince Addie there’s more to life than candies, cupcakes, and crumpets?

The Bakery is book one in the Stonebrooke Holidays Novella Set.

This book was down right hilarious when Leigh makes a decision that on summer break from her teaching job she was going to write a book after her favorite author kills off her beloved book boyfriend she decided to take it into her own hands and figures it can’t be that hard to write a book, so she needed to get her a writing desk small enough to fit in her tiny apartment.Seeing a local ad about a desk that is FREE Leigh jumped all over it and went straight to the address listed to pick up her new desk,but little does she know that it’s more then a desk.  But this very desk has a history of its own and will send what she believes are just stories that she made up and bring them to her real life, so when her family and friends get involved she can’t help but try to help them out,  but then things get turned upside down pretty quickly.
