The Daring Heart (The Highland Heather and Hearts Scottish Romance Series)

by Carmen Caine

Kirkus Reviews –… a comforting read featuring a couple worth rooting for from their first dagger-point meeting.”

The latest from Award-Winning Author Carmen Caine:
                                   
(Scotland, 1482) – To the scandalous Lord Julian Gray, marriage is a malady and nothing more.

How can a man even court a lass longer than a fortnight when there are so many pouting lips to kiss?

Roaming the courts of Europe, Julian appears to spend his time drinking wine, wagering gold, and dandling willing lasses upon his knee. But no one knows the man behind the mask. No one knows that he is Le Marin–Europe’s most daring and brazen spy.

But everything changes the night he finds a dagger pressed against his ribs and an alluring hazel-eyed minx in his bed.

Born into the Vindictam, the renowned Venetian family of assassins, Liselle dreams of the day she will be allowed to practice the family craft. And when she is sent to the Scottish court, her dream is finally realized. But is it an honor … or a curse?

As the threat of civil war looms over Scotland, and the king’s own brother conspires with the English to put himself on the Scottish throne, Julian can’t help but be distracted by the mysterious Venetian beauty and her many secrets.

But will it be his undoing?


Historical Note

While each of these books is a standalone story, “The Daring Heart” continues the story of King James III of Scotland where “The Bedeviled Heart” left off.

And Liselle and Julian never existed, but Lord Gray did. It was Lord Gray’s telling of the tale concerning the mice and the cat that brought about the events of Lauder Bridge that sealed the fate of Thomas Cochrane.  The story of King James III and his brother Albany is based off of true historical events, along with the story of Dolfino Dolfin’s exile from Venice. However, I don’t think it was at the request of the Vindictam. But as they are a secret society … who is to say? 🙂

And while my goal is to weave history throughout these stories in an effort to make them all the more entertaining, these books will always be romances first and historical second.


“The Kindling Heart” begins the story with Bree and Ruan in the Isle of Skye.
“The Bedeviled Heart” covers Cameron and Kate’s dramatic romance against the backdrop of court intrigue and witchcraft.
“The Daring Heart” brings the adventure of Lord Julian Gray as he meets his match in the Italian assassin, Liselle.
“The Bold Heart” weaves the spell of fated love with Merry rescuing Ewan in the events leading up to the Battle of Sauchieburn — completing the circle of how it all began.

COLIN (Demon Hunters)

by Evanne Lorraine

All Holly wants is a Dom to call her own. All Colin wants is a sweet little slave and some rope. It should have been so easy… Why the hell did she have to be human?

Holly loves her job as a private nurse, but the ill and injured offer little chance to explore her secret longings, especially not for a submissive seeking a master worth risking her heart. When she braves the exclusive La Ceinture Noire, a mysterious dom takes charge of her. She never sees his face, but she’ll never forget his powerful mastery.

Demon hunter, Colin avoids the sweetly submissive nurse next door because she doesn’t deserve to be drawn into his nightmare world. No one does. All he has to offer her is pain and heartbreak. He damn near hurts himself by tripping over his own tongue when he spots her in red lace lingerie at the club. After a too brief interlude with the enchanting little slave, he comes to his senses, and alters her memory of their encounter before leaving. There’s more to Holly than he suspects. For openers, she’s immune to his mind games. He can’t erase her memories without serious damage and he can’t bear to hurt her. The more she learns about him, the greater her jeopardy. How can he keep her safe?

Warning: This story contains a dangerously hot alpha male and a sweet woman with steel under her curves along with violence, red-hot sex, and kinky rope play.

She is troubled by the thinking of her family members, their judgmental eyes and the controlling nature of the society in general. She relates her story of the few years which changed her otherwise regular life into one full of exploration and rebellion. She has so many questions in her head and she wants to find answers which would help her understand the root causes for the codes of the society she lives in.

     When Terra Duval is kidnapped by the Demon Lord Azreal, Alex Zane must venture from Earth to the Realm of Magic to rescue his love.  Together, Alex and Terra must unite the forces of a fractured world to free the Nine Realms.  But will his love for Terra prevent him from saving those he has been charged to protect, or will it be the catalyst Alex needs to save the Nine Realms?
 



Thomas Jefferson, Rachel & Me

by Peter Boody

What if Thomas Jefferson returned to life, penniless, powerless, and without a single slave? What if he meets a beautiful mixed-race woman he takes to be Sally Hemings reborn?

What if he lands in a psycho ward or meets the President — at an Independence Day citizenship ceremony at his own hilltop home, Monticello, no less?

“Thomas Jefferson, Rachel & Me” is a tale told by retired history teacher, Jack Arrowsmith, a man numbed by the deaths of his wife and son. It’s about his — and his late son’s girlfriend, Rachel Carter’s — adventures with the writer of the Declaration of Independence.

They meet the ghost of Jefferson at Monticello and, fighting off their panic, agree to take him off to see America.

A history grad student at Columbia, Rachel knows secrets about Jack’s son and wife that she decides Jack must know. They will turn his world upside down, just as Rachel’s world will be changed forever by her evolving relationship with Jefferson.

Dazzled by Rachel, Jefferson regains the vigor of his prime as the trio travels together. But what then?

For all its fast pace and humor, “Thomas Jefferson, Rachel & Me” is a story about hauntings and history. It’s about love and friendship, grief and loss, family secrets and America’s own denial of its past.

Here’s a comment (January 2012) from a reader completely unknown to the author:

“Upon receiving this book as a gift I was told by the presenter that it was one of the better books they had read this year. I couldn’t agree more. The story is moving, the characters are well developed and likable, even in their not-so-best moments. The author certainly humanized a pivotal American figure for me, even if it is the author’s take on his personality. It serves as a nice reminder that these men and women were human as well, for all our faults and talents. I would definitely recommend this book.”

Here’s what another reader said: “I read your book in three sittings, which surely tells you that I couldn’t put it down. After the first chapter, I was hooked and when it ended, I wanted more. Your writing, especially your descriptions, is beautiful. Talk about using words precisely and effectively. I could see Charlottesville and Monticello and wanted to go back (especially to Fleurie, which must be new since my days). I also need to take that evening tour at Monticello. The dialogue was great, believable. Parts made me laugh. Your characters interested me, amazed me, surprised me, made me sad. I was fascinated by how you built the story, how the characters developed, how your imagination worked. I was intrigued by how much real history was there without any sense of a history lesson. And of course the Jefferson questions are irresistible. It was fun to read your book after having just read ‘The Hemingses of Monticello’ this winter. In short, WOW!!”

Psychics and Swords: The Amazing and Totally Plausible Adventures of Steve Walton

If you want some boring, straightforward, deep, meaningful, character-driven book, look elsewhere. You won’t find that here! But maybe – just maybe – you’re the type of person who hears “so this guy with psychic powers has to fight a bunch of random monsters while an evil arch-nemesis searches for a magic sword, and oh yeah, he has help from magic juggling balls given to him by an interdimensional elf” and thinks, yeah, that’s totally something I could read… in that case, look no further!

Jimmy Threepwood And The Veil of Darkness

by Rich Pitman

People’s Book Prize Finalist
â??Great book for children’ ~ Jamie Owen – BBC
â??Great young fantasy novel, in the vein of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson suitable for young readers and adults, thoroughly enjoyable.’
â??Wow what a great book I bought this book for my nephew at a book signing. I started to read it and could not put it down, what a story can’t wait for the second book great cliff-hanger ending.’
â??This book is awesome. I’m always looking for more reading material and this book was recommended. I absolutely loved it, it grabbed my attention from the first few paragraphs and had me hooked’â?¦
Many centuries ago the Elders designed the world we live in, but they knew that through time and the advances in medicine and technology, the world would slowly start to die and man would ultimately destroy the planet. The Elders created a prophecy that every two millennia, four children would receive a mystical mark. The children would grow and (one day) be powerful enough to release the mighty beast, Tyranacus. Together they would purge the world of man, allowing it to heal before the life cycle would start again. Margaret Threepwood was a gentle and loving wife and was due to give birth when tragedy struck and Margaret fell severely ill. The Gatekeeper of life and death appeared in the hospital ward and provided a one-time deal so Margaret would live as long as her son Jimmy Threepwood was brought up unloved, uncared-for and handed to the Gatekeeper and his minions on his eleventh birthday, where his destiny would be unveiled to him. As Jimmy approached his eleventh birthday he noticed strange and unusual things happening. Firstly, a mysterious crow started to follow him around school; this ultimately led to a Bunson burner accident and an unusual scar forming on Jimmy’s arm in the shape of a number nine. This was followed by Jimmy protecting his friend against the school bully, but one touch changed both Jimmy’s and the bully’s lives forever…
â??This book is a must for fans of everything from Harry Potter to the Skullduggery Series. It is dark in places but with enough humour to keep the more nervous among us reading on.’
â??I loved this book and can’t wait for the next one. I really liked the description and story line – it has great action. Good reading for 11+ years.’
If you enjoy dark magical fantasy filled with mystical adventures, dragons and twists this book is for you.
â?¦â??Even Heroes Do Bad Things’



THE END How It Really Happens (E-Book)

by V.A. Pesce

Brock D’Manna, 44th President of the United States, faces yet another enormous crisis. However, this time, prophecy may prove too much to overcome.

Matthew 24:36 “But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone”

Thus begins an intricate and emotional web that leads humanity on a terrifying path of self discovery, coming to terms with personal situations, each other, and the encroaching path of destruction of a ruthless and ancient foe. Whoa to mankind, thy judgment hast arrived.

Prophecy Fulfilled: [10] A great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky [11] the name of the star is Wormwood. And it carries destruction upon its surface. Woe to humankind. Thy judgment hath arrived. [7] The [Horde] looked like Beasts prepared for battle. On their heads, they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human [children]. [8] Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. [9] They had armor like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their passage was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. [10] They had staves and stings like scorpions, and in their staves, they had power to [annihilate] people. [11] They had as [Queen] over them an angel, whose name is [LinaLinas], and in the [old tongue], The [Mother]. [20] They trampled humans in the winepress outside the cities, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles. Revelation

And the Earth shall run RED with BLOOD

Full Moon Rising (The Books of Gem: 3)

by Linda G. Shelnutt

FULL MOON RISING is a warm romance between a human male and a sort of alien female who was born human. As the cover shows from a distance, the main characters, John and Jennifer O’Reilley and their canine friend, Ebony, are fantasy takeoffs from the author and her husband and dog, Arlo.

The woman in the cover photo is Linda’s Mom, Margie (Rocchio) Hudnall made famous by COAL & COCA-COLA, which was selling wildly off its product page during March 2013 [her birth date was March 24, 1920]. Linda is the shadow on the bottom edge.

Though this bio-based sci-fi fantasy is a sequel to MORNING COMES in a parallel series to THE ROSE AND THE PYRAMID, each book in the Mya Gem series can be read as a standalone mainstream novel, and enjoyed in any sequence.

The Rose is available on KINDLE in an upgraded 2013 edition, and in limited numbers of used copies of the original trade paperback, as a collector’s item.

MORNING COMES is also available on KINDLE in an upgraded 2013 edition.

This 2013 version of FULL MOON RISING has also been enhanced from earlier editions. As is the case with other upgrades of Shelnutt’s offerings in the KINDLE GLOW BOOKS format, improvements include series of photos, lists of books, hyperlinks for easy internal navigation and related web sites, easier to read text formatting, reviews, and more.

As with most KINDLE books, free samples are available for downloading to Kindle, and the “Look Inside” feature is available on the main Amazon web site book pages.

A free sample or “Look Inside” of FULL MOON RISING might show how addictive it can become to read a book on Kindle which takes advantage of some of the capacities paper books can’t offer… though many of the hyperlinks in the sample will go to the end of that content since the links are designed to go to later pages in the book.

A handy option for reading this book free if you’re a member of Amazon Prime is to borrow this book. Borrows to Prime Members are at no charge to the member but authors/publishers are paid generously by Amazon when Prime members borrow books.

Possibly the best appetizer for FMR would be CRICKETS and DREAMS (A Short Gem) which is a polished, enhanced excerpt of a few midstream chapters of the full book.

Also included in most of Linda Shelnutt’s Kindle offerings are categorized, hyperlinked lists to all or most of her books. The lists categorize like books in separate collections for ease of identifying and pursuing similar books or Short Gems in sequence.

Note that included photos cause this book to be larger than the average KINDLE offering, but KINDLE GLOW BOOK’S tests of downloads have been done in under a minute, and once read, the book can be archived free in the Amazon CLOUD through Manage Your Kindle.

After reading this edition of FULL MOON RISING on KINDLE, especially if you’re already addicted to your Kindle, you might begin craving this type of upgraded version instinctively working with Kindle’s unique capacities.

The KINDLE kindles many types of fires for creativity and imagination.

Of course, we also agree that there are no electronic tricks which satisfy a true reader more than simple words on a page. Kindle can satisfy that, and more, with options for highly comfortable basic reading or various types of more, especially with KINDLE FIRE.

Best regards from KINDLE GLOW BOOKS

Litain the Thief (A novelette in the Erinua Saga)

by A. J. Lumaren

ON SALE!

What would it take for YOU to become a thief?

The unscrupulous Sir Rincin is searching for a thief. Someone to steal a flame from the sacred temple fire. They must be prepared to face armed guards, mythical monstersâ?¦ and the deadly fire itself.

But who will be prepared to risk their life? And why?

Can they possible succeed? And what will happen if they do?

“Beautifully-written, this book will have you on the edge of your seat, plunging through hope, fear and horror.”

“Who will fetch that flame? You know that it is said that the flame burns the unworthy; that it can even kill with death eternal.”

“Don’t be foolish! Of course I shall not put myself in danger! I shall send someone. I need an accomplice who is trustworthy, brave and pure of heart.”

“I have tried to impress upon him the inappropriateness of his calling upon you like this, but he is most insistent. He merely repeats some nonsense, again and again, about his willingness to bear a flame for the lord Rincin.”

“In the centre of the cavern was a blazing, white fire, seeping forth from a crack in the earth. It glowed brighter even than the sun and its flames danced in an unfelt wind.”

Runaway (Wild Spirit)

by Suzi Goode

What’s a seventeen year old guy supposed to do when his parents are constantly arguing and engaging in the divorce battle of the century?

Drink beer.

Relax by himself.

Take a driver’s exam.

Hang out with the only real friend he ever had, and is now falling in love with.

Her middle name is trouble. Jason Sommers doesn’t want to end up like his parents –forever fighting about trivial matters–but with Oshi, a self-styled princess from the past, he has no choice. She gets under his skin in a big way.

She’s a law to herself. In her eyes, she can do no wrong. She thinks she knows everything when she doesn’t.

Is she real or is she a figment of Jason’s imagination?

A driver’s license will allow him to run away from his parents, Oshi, and his problems. Oshi, however, is making trouble for him in the back seat and the examiner thinks the young driver is talking to himself. Will Jason ace the test and make good on his promise to run away for good?

Excerpt:

Frankly, Oshi was a devil. Seventeen year old Jason Sommers wasn’t sure whether to love her or hate her. His safest bet was to tell her that he at least liked her. A lot. If he didn’t, she might lock him up inside a tree trunk, and there was no telling but that he might be there for hundreds of years. Oshi claimed she’d been stuck in one for two centuries, through no fault of her own. He didn’t believe her though. If she had been as mischievous then as she was now, no wonder the sorcerer had thought it was a good idea to give her some cooling off time. However, his notion of locking her away hadn’t worked. Oshi still got into everything. Luckily for Jason, she wasn’t with him now.

“Are you ready for your driver’s test?” his father asked, keeping his eyes on the mid-afternoon traffic. Mr. Sommers navigated onto the I-5 ramp. Jason hoped he wouldn’t be asked to jump onto the freeway during the practical exam. With Oshi at his side giving not so practical advice, he’d practiced and practiced driving the mini-van. But he was still uncomfortable with entering the freeway with other people on the passenger seat beside him.

Normally Jason would have nodded but he figured the movement would have been wasted on his dad since the older man’s focus was on the road. Instead, he said, “Yeah.” He didn’t add everything would be fineâ??as long as Oshi didn’t come along. She had a habit of throwing him out of kilter simply when she was around.

She didn’t look or act like an average seventeen year old. She twisted her midnight-black hair into two long braids and wore a leather headband woven with multi-colored beads. A real eagle feather jutted out from the band and her mid-knee dress was made of soft tanned leather. The kids at Woodlawn High thought she looked real cool as she acted out the part of a Native American princess, but Jason knew she was the real thing. And, he thought she had the hots for him. Which was ridiculous. He didn’t like girls. Your problems began when you started liking them. You couldn’t do anything wrong, or try as you would, right either. His mom and dad were living proof.

Her name was interesting too. With a straight face, she claimed Oshoni meant ‘Messing with Spirits’. Jason couldn’t decide whether she was being serious or not. Most of the time, she wasn’t and she seemed to enjoy getting him into mega trouble.

The Lingerie Shop (Book 8) – One of a Kind

by Trisha Miller

The Lingerie Shop

A dark, romantic fantasy

copyright © 2013 Trisha Miller.

After Bill’s warning, Peter begins to wonder if Katya is the kind of woman he thought she was.

One of a Kind

They found a room in a little market town that looked out over the town square. Exhausted from the hunt, Peter climbed into bed next to Katya. He felt her soft, warm skin against him as she fell asleep, but he needed to think it all out before he could sleep. Eventually the drunks in the town square stopped their shouting and wandered off home. He fell into a fitful sleep. The town had fallen utterly quiet when he woke, in that black, still time before the dawn. He rose on one elbow. She was awake too and snuggled into his arms as he held her to him.

“I need to tell you something,” Katya murmured.

“Ok,” he whispered.

“I used to be like youâ?¦ A long time agoâ?¦ Beforeâ?¦ It’s difficult to tell you: I’ve tried lots of times to tell you, but you don’t ever seem to want to know. You say you love me. It touches me that you do, but sometimes I feel that you don’t know me at all but if I told you it would ruin everything. I like being loved and some part of me; the part I used to be a long time ago, is that wonderful person who you see in me and I feel that someday I can be that person with you. But what I was, what that man made me into, was like those things we killed last night: murderous, bloody, full of blame.”
