Beast Underneath by Julie Morgan

An impossible spell. An unwanted lover. A dark tale in the making. Nightmares can frighten even the bravest of men, but when dreams become reality, Bella will not know whether she is asleep… or awake. When a mysterious man ventures to Paris, havoc will shake Bella to her core. All malicious activities point to her, but she has no memory of it. Her only ally is her husband, Adrian. As the spell is moments from fruition, Adrian offers to take her place. Meddling with magic, after all, always comes with a price.

Anna and Vlad each stand in the shadow of their friends, but together they have a fairy tale all their own.

Mine Before Midnight by Amy L Gale

Mended by Emily Cyr

Marin has spent her life inexplicably feeling like a part of her very being was tattered. As a result, she has dedicated her life to restoring antique art and has become the best in her field.

However, a life of repairing broken paintings isn’t enough to fill the void within, and Marin finds herself on her first vacation ever. This was meant to be the trip where she could finally mend the part of herself that’s missing.

Hours after repairing an ancient tapestry at a quaint bed and breakfast, she grows incomprehensibly tired and wakes up to realize she’s not in her room, with no memory of when or how she left. The strange night isn’t what worries Marin most, though – it’s the fact that she’s woken up as something far from human and has suddenly had her eyes opened to a world she couldn’t see before, one filled with witches, bear-shifters, and hunters.

Now, Marin must choose which life she wants. She can embrace her new self and finally feel whole, but will always be hunted by someone hell-bent on revenge. Or she can go back to the comfortable life she once knew, and be the downfall of an entire race. Only Marin can make the choice, before it’s too late.

Keys to Her Heart by Lori King

The Prince…

Evan Blake has never wanted for anything. He’s never been hungry or made do with hand-me-downs. Born into generations of determined, successful businessmen, he’s charged with keeping his family’s legacy intact and building on it. It isn’t until his high-school crush returns to town, that he realizes he needs more…

The Pauper…

Walker Ash has scraped for everything he owns. Every day is a test of his ability to charm his way through life, because it’s the only thing he’s never had a shortage of. She was his teenage wet dream, and now she’s his adult craving…

The Challenge…

Best friends since elementary school, Walker and Evan have always been at odds over their different lifestyles, but one drunk bet will have them swapping lives for a day. The challenge has been accepted, and the prize is one worth winning. Which man will walk away with the keys to her heart?

Severed Hearts by Elizabeth Raven

Come. Sit down, and join me for a story. Please, forgive me if it seems a bit gory. This ghastly tale is thanks to the Brother’s Grimm. Hold on to your organs, life, and limbs! Fret not, Dear Reader. The bloody beginning does not persist, and the rest of the tale you simply can’t resist. Settle in, and cast all doubt aside, as we embark on one hell of a ride! No time for squeamishness or personal aversions, lest you risk never knowing the fate of Lily and the Three Army Surgeons.

Snow by Erzabet Bishop

Fairytales can bite…

To look to the future, sometimes you have to unearth the secrets of the past.

Snow longs to find a true love of her own, but when her father returns from war with a new bride, her carefully planned out life slips through her fingers. Her new stepmother, the Queen, harbors a dangerous secret. One malicious kiss sends Snow tumbling into a sinister landscape of dark desires and a new manifestation that can save her or destroy everything she’s ever held dear.

Darkness can hide the most sultry of nights.

Gideon and his men guard the king, but even they can’t protect him from his murderous new bride. When the castle falls prey to the Queen’s ire, they find themselves under the spell of the moon. Can they harness their new reality to protect the newest target of the Queen’s wrath, or will they once again be victims of her unholy power play?

The Huntress & The Frog by Louisa Bacio

One more job and Melody plans to retire her fighting knives. Her final mission is to protect an elitist prince until he finds his mate. But there’s more to his royal highness than meets the eye.

Victor needs to marry a princess in order to break the curse of the voodoo king of New Orleans. Instead, he gets a huntress.

In a wicked case of opposites attract, the adult version of this classic tale proves the power of pleasure.

Breathe Me to Life by Jolanthe Aleksander

Ailsa was biding her time when the call of the music floating on the wings of the night’s wind led her to a moonlit glen and another world.

Kellan, Prince of the Fae Court, was tired and bored with things as they were until a young woman not only sparked his interest but his desire to finally claim a mate.

Two souls find in each other a connection unlike any other.

A chance encounter brought them together. A dream created a bond. Will the jealousy of one who was scorned tear them apart? Or will love’s kiss breathe life into a sleeping beauty?

Red by Tara Vasser

In the aftermath of a tragic car accident, Red is resurrected by a Vampire. As repayment for her second life, she spends a decade being groomed to serve as a peace offering between enemies.

Upon arrival at the estate of her betrothed, Red soon realizes the cruelty of her husband-to-be and the sterility of his manse are more than she can bear. Seeking refuge, she flees to the woods where nothing is as it seems. There, she is drawn to a dangerous figure shrouded in secrecy. It is within the trees where Red will discover who is predator and who is prey.

Swan Song by Jess Haines

Time can change anyone’s story. Even mine.

Once upon a time, there was a forest with an enchanted lake whose waters brimmed with secrets…

There are many versions of my story. You may have heard that an evil wizard transformed a princess into a swan. Or perhaps the tale of a witch who turned a beautiful queen into a white duck to take her royal place at the side of the king. Or that a prince stole a woman’s veil to prevent her from transforming into a bird and flying away from him.

A little truth may be sprinkled in all these tales. I cannot speak for them all.

But this one is mine.

Twelve by Savannah Verte

Lyford Rousseau needs a son. He has thirty years to fulfill an agreement or lose his kingdom forever. Multiple wives and a dozen children later, he learns the price of deception, and of apathy. Will it cost him everything?

This version of the Twelve Dancing Princesses twists what you thought you knew from your childhood fairy tales and shows what the good king was really worried about. It wasn’t dance slippers. There’s more dirty than a dance in this twisted tale.

Alice Goes to Hell by Christine Alvarez

When Alice learns that a recent murder of a stripper has an uncanny resemblance to a cold case dubbed The Wonderland Murders, she doesn’t hesitate before jumping down the rabbit hole of a mad man’s story.

Desperate to solve her mother’s murder and finally bring down the man who turned her favorite childhood fairytale into a horror story, she works to interpret the clues he’s left just for her.

But even with the help of her fiancé Tony, Alice always seems to be running late, until the mad man himself invites her to a tea party of his own making.

Jak the Giant Healer by Rebekah R. Ganiere

Sometimes it takes being kidnapped to figure out who you were meant to be.

Jak has spent her life as her father’s live in babysitter. But when he loses her in a card game to the man she’s refused for the last year, Jak refuses to take it lying down. Things only seem to go downhill when Jak when she’s kidnapped by the Jätte and taken to their kingdom in the sky.

Excerpt

“Whose idea was it to get an apartment on the third floor of a building with no fucking elevator?” she groaned, holding her head.

“If I recall, you wanted this place because of the rooftop deck. Said you could watch the sunrise whenever you wanted like you were on top of the world.”

“Yes, the roof!” Bristol nodded and clapped her hands excitedly. “Let’s go up there and look at the stars.”

“You need to get some sleep, B,” he protested as she pulled him through the small apartment to the stairway he knew led above.

“I will, but we can look at the stars now, then when you’re gone, I’ll think of you every time I look up at them. I’ll know you’re looking at the same stars, thinking of me.”

Roan knew she probably didn’t intend her words to be so sentimental, but the alcohol was acting like a truth serum, and it shut down her inhibitions. She rarely allowed anyone to see this side of her. Following her up the tiny flight of stairs, he was soon seated on a wooden lounge chair, with her between his legs, her back against his chest, his arms wrapped around her to keep her warm.

“See, there’s my favorite, Ursa Major, the Big Bear,” she pointed upwards.

“Isn’t that the Big Dipper?”

“Yes and no. The Big Dipper is part of the Big Bear, but they’re still two different constellations,” she explained. “My dad taught me that when I was tiny.”

Her voice was wistful when she spoke of her recently deceased father, and Roan hugged her tighter. Having lost his own mother to uterine cancer when he was eleven, he sympathized with her pain.

“Roan, how much longer do you think you can take doing these missions?” she asked randomly.

Stunned silent, he could only shrug behind her.

“You’ve been gone more than you’ve been home. Don’t you get lonely?”

“Sure, every Marine gets lonely occasionally, but I’m one of the lucky ones because I get constant contact. You and my family send me packages, letters, and cards, and I can use FaceTime on some missions, Skype on others. There are plenty of guys over there who don’t have access to any of that.”

“Would you stay if they gave you the option?”

Roan tensed and frowned down at the top of her head, “What do you mean?”

“I don’t know. I just hate when you’re gone. My world seems off-kilter somehow.” She sat up abruptly. “I’m like Lucy with no Ethel.”

“Excuse me?” He felt his eyebrow arch in question. “I am no Ethel. If anyone here is Lucy, it’s me.”

“Nah, Lucy was always instigating trouble, and Ethel just went along with it.”

“Which is exactly why I’m the Lucy in this relationship,” Roan laughed. She shivered, and he tugged her back against him. Instead of resuming their spooned position, she lay sideways against him, her shoulder on his chest, her hands dangerously close to forbidden territory. “If you’re cold, we should go back downstairs.”

“I don’t want to yet. I like having you all to myself,” she sighed and tipped her face up, the pale moonlight barely lighting her face properly. “Have you ever thought about giving it up? The Marines, I mean?”

“Aw, B, of course, it’s crossed my mind. Every man who’s had to watch a friend die or had to kill someone has second-guessed his career choice, but I was born to be a Marine. Giving it up would be like giving up air. My body just wouldn’t work anymore.”

She nodded, “I figured you would say something like that.”

“I always come back.”

Author Bio

She spends her days dreaming up Alpha men, and her nights telling their stories. An admitted TV and book junkie, she can be found relaxing with a steamy story, or binging in an entire season of some show online. She gives her parents all the credit for her unique sense of humor and acceptance of all forms of love. There are no two loves alike, but you can love more than one with your whole heart.

With the motto: Live, Laugh, and Love like today is your only chance, she will continue to write as long as you continue to read. Thank you for taking the time to indulge in a good Happily Ever After with her.

Empire of Dirt

The da Silva Heirs 3

Two broken hearts, one chance to heal.

Tate Verhoven was broken by an accident that destroyed his legs and his confidence. After a foolish decision, he also lost the woman he loved–to his brother. Feeling betrayed and broken, Tate hides in darkness. Even Cady McCoy is hard pressed to help.
Marcia came to Texas merely to help her sisters, Fatima and Lucy. The Verhovens also need her help after the devastating events of the past weeks. With a heart of stone and steel wall around it, she’s not there to make friends. Designing an expansive plan to help the Verhoven ranch thrive, Marcy is ready to take on the world.
It takes the death of just one head of cattle on a neighboring farm for the accusations of witchcraft and bad juju to start flying. Cady and Lucy are first for the guillotine.
While Tate’s fighting mental illness, superstition, and the mysterious death of cattle around Austin, he’s desperate to find his place again. Taking on the task of proving Cady and Lucy innocent may be exactly what he needs.
To his surprise, the da Silva girls aren’t done with him– or his heart–yet.

Phatt Farm

After twenty years in the military, Eazy Phatt realizes he’s seen it all, done it all, and regretted enough. He retires, planning to stay with family until he decides what to do with his civilian life. He’s thirty-eight and his priority is to find a woman who’ll love him as much as his mom loved his dad. And he’s hoping to do that before he turns thirty-nine.
He soon discovers his mother has invested in a harebrained scheme, capitalizing on the family name. She’s turning the homeplace into a weight loss center. Eazy’s not happy with the new business at all—until the last registered guest arrives accompanied by her dog.
The voluptuous siren is the woman of his dreams. But something has her spooked. She’s on edge, needs to unwind, maybe make a friend. Both she and her dog are watchful, suspicious, guarded. As a battle-scarred veteran, Eazy recognizes a victim of violence. He’s got six weeks to gain her trust and convince her to let him protect her too.
FBI agent Mackenzie Sierra Scott appreciates the irony in her situation. While she recovers from a gunshot wound meant to keep her from testifying against embezzlers, she’s spending six weeks in-hiding at a weight loss center. Her handler probably thinks he’s being cute, knowing she considers dieting stupid. Phatt Farm is going to be six weeks of mindless boredom.
But then again, maybe not. As soon as she meets the resident farmer, Mack thinks of many ways they could burn calories together. When he asks her to help him with farm work as an alternative to a daily regime of yoga, meditation, and pushups, she accepts, picturing hours of gratuitous sex.
Hot body aside, Eazy Phatt is a pain in the neck. Instead of becoming her lover, he turns Mack into a farmhand, keeping her busy from first light till bed. She drives tractor, stacks hay, picks apples, shucks corn, and somewhere along the way, falls in love. And that all happens before the shooting starts.

As one of the #CMCon18 featured bloggers, I get to chat with a few of the talented authors who will be hitting the beach for Coastal Magic 2018 in Daytona Beach, February 22 – 25th.  Since we are in the first quarter of a new year, I thought we’d talk about beginnings and first times.

☕ Coffee and a chat with Deborah Blake

Tamye: What inspired you to become a writer? Did you always want to be a writer or did you come to it later in life?

Deborah: I’ve been writing most of my life. I think I wrote my first novel in 6th grade. In math class 🙂

Tamye: What was the inspiration for your first book, if different from question #1?

Deborah: A dream, actually!

Tamye: How many times have you attended Coastal Magic? Please tell us about your first time, and what you are looking forward to this time.

Deborah: This will be my 3rd time. So many of my author friends said how much they loved it, I had to try it out. And I loved it too! Everyone is so friendly, it is fun and relaxed, and BEACH. Plus I get to hang with a lot of great people. Did I mention the beach?

Tamye: When and what was the first craft you seriously pursued?

Deborah: I have been a professional jewelry maker for about 30 years. I do way less now that I write (no more shows) but I do sell the things I make at the shop I run and occasionally online.

Tamye: Here are a few examples of the wonderful jewelry Deborah makes.

I’m new to Deborah’s writing.  The first book I read of hers was “Dangerously Charming, book one in her Broken Riders trilogy. Then I devoured the next in the series, “Dangerously Divine. Now I’m eagerly awaiting the third and last book in this exciting trilogy, Dangerously Fierce

From the author of the Baba Yaga novels, a brand new series set in the same “addicting”* world, filled with wild magic, enchanting damsels, and the irresistibly daring men who serve the Baba Yagas…

The Riders are three immortal brothers who protect the mythical Baba Yagas. But their time serving the witches has ended—and their new destinies are just beginning…

Dangerously Charming (Broken Riders Book 1)

Dangerously CharmingEver since a near-fatal mistake stripped Mikhail Day and his brothers of their calling to be Riders, Day has hidden from his shame and his new, mortal life in a remote cabin in the Adirondack mountains. But when a desperate young woman appears on his doorstep, he cannot resist helping her—and cannot deny how strongly he’s drawn to her…

For generations, women in Jenna Quinlan’s family have been cursed to give up their first born child to the vengeful fairy Zilya. When Jenna finds herself unexpectedly pregnant, she is determined to break her family’s curse and keep her baby, even if it means teaming up with a mysterious and charismatic man with demons of his own…

To unravel the curse, Jenna and Day will have to travel deep into the Otherworld. But the biggest challenge of the journey might not be solving an ancient puzzle but learning to heal their own broken hearts…

Review by Tamye

Never say never, or you might just be lucky enough to have the universe take up the challenge.

I was completely captivated by Mikail Day and Jenna Quinlan and the people of the Otherworld. Faeries, Baba Yagas, Dragon-Dogs, Bagpipe playing lizards, chameleons, trolls, and so many more. Wonderful world building combined with an enchanted and well-thought out storyline kept me turning the pages, eager to see what would happen next, and who would rescue whom.

I loved this story, and am thrilled that the next one was recently released so I can dive right into Gregori Sun’s story. I recommend this book to anyone who loves romantic fantasy with an HEA.


Dangerously Divine
(Broken Riders Book 2)

Dangerously Devine

The author of the “wonderful” (Tamora Pierce) Baba Yaga novels and Dangerously Charming is back with a magically mesmerizing new tale about the dashing and daring Broken Riders…

The Riders: Three immortal brothers who kept the Baba Yagas safe, now stripped of their summons to protect. But fate is not finished with them—and their new callings are even more powerful…

Though his physical wounds have healed, Gregori Sun, the eldest of the Riders, remains in spiritual turmoil. His search for his mother, the one person able to heal his soul and save his life, is failing—until he crosses paths with a beautiful and fascinating librarian who might be the key to his salvation…

Ciera Evans’s bookish ways are just a guise. The product of a difficult past, she has dedicated her life to saving lost teens—by any means necessary. She works alone, but when a dark, brooding stranger proposes they team up to solve both their problems, she is tempted—in more ways than one…

After Ciera and Sun’s plans are derailed by dangerous enemies, they find themselves entangled in an ungodly affair—one that will force them to either find new strength together or be forever haunted by their pasts alone.

Review by Tamye

This book has it all; An Asian looking dude with a Russian accent, who’s lost his inner cool. He leaves Otherworld to rejoin the land of the Humans to become a Buddhist monk at a monastery in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He’s also searching for his mom, who was a powerful Mongolian shamaness, and who might or might not be alive. So, of course, he goes to the library to conduct research where he meets librarian, Ciera Evans.

Ciera might look like the stereotypical librarian by day, but that is only one aspect of her nature. She trades her uptight bun, and understated clothing, for jeans, a hoodie, a braid and volunteer work at a local soup kitchen. Boy, is she in for a surprise when the luscious looking Gregori Sun show up for his first night as their volunteer.

Both have secrets, both have no time for the opposite sex. Monk, remember? But the universe and others have their own agenda, and things quickly heat up.

This is a slightly twisted story that I loved to pieces. Keira and Sun are just friends (so they keep saying), helping one another while lusting after, and falling in love with each other. Not that either will admit it. Just to keep things jumping, we have teenage runaways, a Baba Yaga or two and their companion dragons (luckily disguised as earthly pets), a god, a goddess, a couple of villains, and lots of monks. That’s when things cool down, way down.

Lots of action, twist, turns, hilarity, and an intriguing cast of characters that are so real, and fantastical, that I can’t get enough of them. Thankfully there are more books in this wonderful world of which the author has done a fantastic job of creating.

The only thing which kept me from giving the book a higher rating was the fact that Keira suddenly knew things towards the end, that she couldn’t have known. Oops! But thankfully, it wasn’t enough of a distraction to prevent me from enjoying the story and eagerly awaiting the next.

I will be reading lots more books by this author.

Dangerously Fierce (Broken Riders Book 3)

Dangerously FierceThe Riders: Three legendary brothers who kept the Baba Yagas safe. The Riders’ immortality was stripped away, along with their mission. But they are still much more than Human, and their story is far from over…

His brothers may have found new paths to follow, but Alexei Knight isn’t even looking. If he can’t have the life he was meant to lead, there is no second choice. So he is bent on drinking and brawling his way across the country until he winds up on Cape Cod in a bar called The Hook and Anchor, where he finds challenges he was never expecting, a feisty red-haired bartender, and maybe a lot more than that…

Bethany McKenna left behind an almost-completed law degree to return home and care for her cranky disabled father and run his bar for him. If that wasn’t enough, she also agreed to foster a very pregnant Great Dane. She has enough to deal with without adding in a giant bearded brawler, no matter how appealing he is. Yet somehow he ends up living in the guesthouse, taking care of her father, and sneaking his way into her heart…

Alexei and Bethany both think the lives they wanted have come to an end, but after dealing with a mysterious sea monster, pirates, dragons, and some adorable puppies, they might just discover that love is the greatest adventure of all…

#CMCon18 – A Chat with Renee George, a Review, and a Free Book

Coffee and a Chat at the Beach with #CMCon18 Author Renee George

As one of the #CMCon18 featured bloggers, I get to chat with a few of the talented authors who will be hitting the beach for Coastal Magic 2018 in Daytona Beach, February 22 – 25th.  Since we are in the first quarter of a new year, I thought we’d talk about beginnings and first times.

The second CMC Featured Author joining me for Coffee and a Chat at the Beach is my friend, Renee George.


USA Today Bestselling Author, Renee George writes paranormal mysteries and romances because she loves all things whodunit, Otherworldly, and weird. Also, she wishes her pittie, the adorable Kona Princess Warrior, and her beagle, Josie the Incontinent Princess, could talk. Or at least be more like Scooby-Doo and help her unmask villains at the haunted house up the street.


When she’s not writing about mystery-solving werecougars or the adventures of a hapless psychic living among shapeshifters, she’s preyed upon by stray kittens who end up living in her house because she can’t say no to their sweet, furry faces. (Someone stop telling them where she lives!) Okay, the first kitten totally showed up one day and suddenly she’s got a new pet named Simon. I think he told his pals what a soft heart Renee has.

She lives in Mid-Missouri with her family and spends her non-writing time doing really cool stuff…like watching TV and cleaning up dog poop.


 Coffee and a Chat with Renee

Tamye: What inspired you to become a writer? Did you always want to be a writer or did you come to it later in life?

Renee: When I was four years old, I told my mother that I wanted to write stories. She told me I would have to learn how to spell first. “grin” I wasn’t deterred. I already knew my alphabets, so I used to string letters together and drive her nuts by asking if I made a real word. So, I guess I would fall into the category of always knowing.

Tamye: What was the inspiration for your first book?

Renee: My first book is one that no one has ever seen. It was an 800-page high fantasy tome inspired by the likes of David Eddings, R.A.Salvatore, and Anne McCaffrey. It’s not good, but it taught me a lot of the “don’ts” when it comes to writing. My first paranormal book was inspired by Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake books. Those were the first stories I’d read where the monsters weren’t always the bad guys, and often, they were the heroes. It made me fall in love with urban fantasy and all things supernatural.

Tamye: This is your first time at Coastal Magic. What influenced your decision to attend?

Renee: I decided to attend because I was asked in a really flattering way that made me feel like Sally Fields at the Oscars. Besides, Damon Suede promised me that it would be a great time. Add to that, I get to room with one of my best friends, Robyn Peterman, and I couldn’t say no!

Tamye: Do you craft?

Renee: I actually have crafted in the past, candles, crocheting, wooden signs, essential oil blending, etc. I just haven’t done it in a very long time. I get all my crafty things from my BFF Michele Bardsley.  LOL



Renee just released a new book in her Peculiar Mysteries series, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advanced copy.

Review By Tamye

 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Furred Lines (Peculiar Mysteries Book 6)

While I’ve read every book in this hilarious series, this book can easily be read as a stand alone.  But you’ll probably want to go back and read the rest of the books in the series because they rock, and you’ll want to find out more about all the intriguing characters that make up this unique shifter town.

Our main characters, Mr. Hot, hot, hot ….. Senior Agent FBI man, Dominic Tartan, and Special Agent, (Yeah, she’s special, as in wereraccoon special.  And just like one of those little bandits, she can pick a lock in no time flat), Dr. Nicole Taylor.  He’s gruff, and she’s a bit klutzy, at least around him.  Things soon heat up.  Between the two agents sizzling hot chemistry, (Oops, not supposed to jump the senior agents bones.) and the dead bodies….   Yep, someone’s not behaving.

Things just get better when you add in the dynamics of returning to Nicole’s hometown of Peculiar.  Parents, ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, possible killers, wacko survivalists, and a few other quirky individuals to keep things interesting, or embarrassing, depending on who you ask.

Furred Lines made me smile, laugh, cry and cheer.  It also managed to surprise me a time or two.  The story flowed well, and the characters had a depth that made them real.  I loved this book so much, I went out and bought my own copy as soon as it was released.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good laugh, and a town full of shapeshifters with their mystery.

Furred Lines teaser 1

Synopsis

Wereraccoon Nicole Taylor, a recent Quantico graduate, is eager to prove herself. She’s been assigned to work with oh-so-yummy field agent and werebear Dominic Tartan to catch the serial therianthrope kidnapper Little Piggy.

Dom doesn’t know what to make of the sexy recruit he’s been tasked to train. Half the time he wants to ditch her, the other half of the time he wants to kiss her. Nicole struggles with the urge to sock him one or jump his bones.

The case gets personal when Little Piggy takes a citizen from Nicole’s hometown of Peculiar, Missouri. Dom and Nicole must catch the supernatural criminal—before his latest kidnap victim ends up dead.

Excerpt

“I’ll take the open-faced roast beef sandwich piled high with mash potatoes and extra brown gravy,” a man behind me said. I whipped my head around hard enough to wrench my neck. Dominic Tartan stood a few feet away. He raised his brow at my unasked question. “I finished up early in Springfield. Thought I would join you for lunch.”

I’d texted him about my plans, but I didn’t think he’d track me down.

He turned his gaze to the table, and his expression brightened immensely when he saw Chavvah. “Well, hello, Chav. Is it still Trimmel, or has the good doctor nailed you down yet?”

“He nails me every chance he gets,” she said as if she was commenting on the weather. The slight uptick of the corner of her mouth and the way she reached up to move a lock of hair from her shoulder told me she didn’t mind the flirting, but I’d seen her with Doctor Smith, and if Tartan thought he had a chance in hell with the tall, leggy brunette, he was sorely mistaken.

“So not married.” Dominic smiled.

“We’ve set a date,” she said.

“March twentieth,” Sunny said. “The Spring equinox or some such nonsense. Werewolves are a pain in the ass.”

“True story,” Chav said, “and they sure know how to ruin a perfectly good party.”

Dom spread his hands. “Well, if it’s a party you want…”

Selena, who had been waiting patiently for our orders, giggled.

I stood up. “There isn’t room at this table for another chair. Agent Tartan and I will take the one Mr. And Mrs. Smart just left.”

Selena’s smile grew tight. “I’ll get it cleaned up for you two.” She looked at the deputy. “Should I make it for three?”

I said, “yes,” while Dominic said, “no.”

Eldin shook his head. “You two go on. I’ll finish lunch with Sunny and Chav.”

After we sat at the new table, a small one near the kitchen, I sipped my coffee and glared at Dominic.

He ordered an iced tea then turned to me and said, “What?”

In a quiet shout, the kind that’s all about tone without volume, I said, “What top secret information did you learn that Eldin couldn’t hear?”

“Other than what’s in the files, there’s nothing new to learn.”

“But the victim is definitely a therianthrope?”

“They’re rabbit shifters.”

“That explains the five kids and another on the way. Though, we have a woman in town, a deer shifter, who would give those rabbits a run for their money.”

“You mean Ruth Thompson.”

I assessed him again. “I get you spent a week here a couple years back, but damn, you really paid attention.”

“Ruth is a friend of Chav’s.”

A knot formed in my throat. “Just how well did you get to know Chavvah Trimmel?”

“As well as any man could with a jealous werewolf breathing down his neck.”

I snorted. “So not as well as you’d have liked.”

Dom winked at me, and the knot in my throat tightened.

“Do any of the victims have ties to Peculiar? I really don’t see how any investigation here is going to produce a lead.”

“Actually, there is one thing that ties them all together.” He leaned forward. “They were all at the Tri-State Council Jubilee here in two summers ago.”

“When did you find this out?” Because if it was sooner than the past four hours I was going to be unhappy.

“I got the information when I was driving here from Springfield. You know Wilhelmina Boden, your dad’s new deputy?”

“Oh, yeah, the red-head engaged to Brady Corman.”

Dom’s eyes darkened. “That’s her. She was head of security for the Tri-State Council before her move to Peculiar. She managed to get her hands on a complete list of all the people who attended the event. She gave your dad and me a copy.”

“Did you find out if there are any more killings in this same vein prior to the last three?”

He shook his head. “Not yet.” I noticed for the first time how tired he looked around the eyes.

“We should get to the interviews with the Blonde Bear owners and staff. Mr. Lieberman’s life may depend on it. Though I don’t know what we can learn here. Strangers stick out like sore thumbs. I think Blondina and Roger would have told my dad if anyone around here fit the bill.”

“That’s just it.” Dom rubbed his chin. “I think it’s someone who lives here.”

I nodded, not wanting to agree, but there was no other explanation. “We need to start a list of people who could leave town without drawing suspicion.”

“Agreed,” Dom said. “And we need to do it in a way that doesn’t alert the unsub.”

In a town of less than two-thousand people, my partner was asking for a whole lot of impossible, but there were other things to consider with this criminal.

“This guy is smart. Organized. So, let’s narrow it down by skilled employment or white-collar work.” I planted my elbow on the table as another thought occurred to me. “This killer is real ballsy. He takes his victims outside their homes and returns them. That takes a lot of confidence.”

I felt a hand on my shoulder and turned to see Sunny Haddock staring down at me. Her eyes were glazed, and her very worried-looking best friend stood behind her.

“What is it?”

Chav shook her head. “I’ve never seen her like this.”

With a blank stare in my direction, Sunny said in a monotone voice, “Duck when you see the yellow man. Step over the crack. Skipped stones on the lake. Beware the lying owl. Falling glass. Death.” Her voice grew even more hollow. “Death strikes at twelve.” She blinked, her pupils flexing to focus. “What in the world? That’s weird.”

I let out a noisy breath I’d been holding. “You’re not kidding.”

Get it now!

Amazon | BookBub | B&N | iTunes | Kobo | Google | Goodreads

Review By Tamye

At the mention of dark chocolate and melted marshmallows, normally S’mores and friends hanging around a campfire would come to mind. Not anymore. Now, it’s Sven Anders with a voice that can make your insides melt and your panties wet.

I wouldn’t call it love-at-first-sight. More like lust and attitude with a dollop of misunderstanding and accusations. Nothing a relaxing swim, and a few days in paradise can’t overcome, right?

The characters have depth. Their foibles make them real, even endearing. The story-line is an engrossing journey of growth and discovery, littered with moments of laughter, tears, and heartache. Both theirs and mine.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys contemporary, island or vacation romance.

Disclaimer: I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.


Excerpt:

The empty glass of Crown and Coke reminded Yuri she needed this vacation. They’d only landed an hour ago, and she’d already downed two glasses, was anticipating a third, and hoping by number four, she’d be numb to all the drama. The constant ringing of her cell phone triggered resentful emotions she normally wouldn’t feel towards her father. She needed space, and he refused to give it to her. Taking a deep breath, Yuri shoved her phone into her carry-on bag. I’m not going to spend this trip drowning my sorrows. She’d tackle her demons and make life-changing decisions after her trip. Right now, she needed to get the room key, change, and get her day started.

The sun’s rays kissed her skin, lending to the tropical atmosphere. A blend of coconut oil, salt water, fresh fruit, and the unique scent of fragrant blooms invaded her senses. Peace. Yuri took a deep breath as she walked into the front lobby of the resort. Dark browns with touches of orange gave the place a welcoming feel. There was the perfect amount of light highlighting the entrance. A curtain of water showered the side walls, decorated with a tropical mural. Yuri typically retreated to her room upon arriving. Not this trip. Exploring hit the top of her list while she vacationed. She had no intention of remaining behind closed doors.

“This is what I needed.”

Both of her friends, Naima and Leah, walked ahead toward the concierge. Only one room for the three of them. A junior bungalow suite that sat atop the water with its own ocean pool.

Sven Anders Teaser

“Excuse me,” a deep voice boomed behind her. She didn’t turn around and refused to look. Instead, moved out of the man’s way. That his voice evoked images of dark chocolate drizzled over melted marshmallows meant one thing: bad news. Any time a man’s voice reminded Yuri of food, one of two things happened. Either she created the flavor, or she took a taste. It’s what had happened with her last relationship. Thomas reminded her of caramelized sugar and butter. Yeah, and where did that get you? This man’s voice led to thoughts of simple ingredients. Two. Dark chocolate and marshmallows. A Bitter-sweet flavor melted over a cloud of decadent bliss. The perfect combination of sex and sin.

“Yuri, the room sleeps three,” Naima’s voice pulled her back to reality.

“If you can work with it, so can I. Otherwise, I can grab a separate room.”

“Girl, don’t be crazy, we’ve all slept in tight spaces, we can make this work. Besides, I don’t plan on living in my room. Do you?”

No, she didn’t.

She’d already made plans.

“I have an appointment for snorkeling, in,”—Yuri gazed at her Fitbit for the time— “an hour and a half. I’m gonna change out of my travel clothes and head on over to meet with the group.”

“All right, here’s the key card.” Naima walked over and placed the card in her hand.

“Thanks.”

Snorkeling, hiking, and the chance to eat at Rudy’s held top spots on her to-do list. Time was her main ingredient.

#CMCon18 – A Chat with Tere Michaels, a Review, and a Giveaway

Coffee and a Chat at the Beach with #CMCon2018 Author

As one of the #CMCon18 featured bloggers, I get to grill, um… interview a few of the talented authors who will be hitting the beach for Coastal Magic 2018 in Daytona Beach this coming February.  Since we are in the start of a new year, I thought we’d talk about beginnings, firsts, and origins.

The first CMC Featured Author joining me for Coffee and a Chat at the Beach is Tere Michaels.

Tere’s specialties are snark, angst, and happily ever afters set in the big city. It might take some time to get there but no worries – she believes in love conquering all!

She has written fifteen books including her popular Faith, Love & Devotion series and the superhero saga, The Vigilante.

Nothing makes her happier than knowing she made a reader laugh or smile or cry – it’s the purpose of sharing her work with people. She loves hearing from fans and fellow writers and is always available for speaking engagements, visits, and workshops.

Website | Facebook | Twitter | Amazon | Goodreads | DreamSpinner Press | BookBub


Let the grilling commence!

Tamye:  What inspired you to become a writer? Did you always want to be a writer or did you come to it later in life?

Tere:  I was four or five when I realized that someone’s work was writing stories – and I just thought, “That. That right there.” I’ve never wavered from that dream.

Tamye:  What was the inspiration for your first book?

Tere:  A weird pregnancy dream, which led to a character forming in my head, which led to me asking, “Who is the most complicated person he can fall in love with, after experiencing such a tragedy?” And Matt and Evan (Faith, Love & Devotion series) were born.

Tamye:  How many times have you attended Coastal Magic? Tell us about your first time, and what you’re looking forward to this time.

Tere:  Oh gosh, I’ve lost count! I love Coastal Magic! When anyone asks me which events to attend, they’re the first on my list. I am looking forward to meeting new fans, seeing old friends and just the casual “we are all here to love books” vibe.

Tamye:  Do you craft?

Tere:  Once upon a time I made jewelry and I love TRYING to craft but my results never look like the pictures. I don’t have that ease of creation like I do with words. So envious of those who do!


My review of The Heir Apparent

The Heir Apparent

A bit of a slow start, but well worth reading. Intriguing storyline, that allows for the main characters to grow, both emotionally and socially. The secondary characters are varied and interesting. The intrigue keeps you guessing, and lends life to the story.

Through death, betrayal, and corporate politics Henry and his scrumptious lover, Archie discover where their true priorities lie.

If you like M/M romance with a bit of intrigue, this is the book for you.

Disclosure: I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Amazon | B&N | Apple | Google | KoboDreamSpinners | BookBub | Goodreads

The Heir ApparentSynopsis

The heir apparent to a vast international company, Henry Walker has focused his entire life on pleasing his cold and distant father, a futile effort that’s left him no time for life, love, or making his own decisions. He has just one friend—one dirty little secret—Archie Banks. Raised on the Walker estate alongside Henry, Archie is now Henry’s driver, bodyguard… and occasional lover. Archie is loyal, but he’s about to graduate from college and has plans for his life that don’t include living every moment at the beck and call of Henry’s father. Not even for Henry.

With no warning, a shocking kidnapping leads to tragedy and chaos, thrusting Henry and Archie into a dramatic struggle that threatens them individually and as a couple. Can they find a way to heal the hurt of the past, save the company that is Henry’s birthright, and find a future together?
