How would you describe this series to someone who has never read it before?

Well I love to write fantasy and paranormal romance and I also love, love, LOVE “A Game Of Thrones”. One day in the shower I had a crazy idea for a series that would take royalty and dragon elements of “Game Of Thrones” but set in a dystopian future. After writing the first book and showing it to some people they thought I was crazy but they all came back and said “IT WORKS!”.

Then “The Dragon’s Throne” was born!

What are some of your creative influences?

I do love anything dystopian with “Divergent” and “Hunger Games” being some of my favorites. Naturally I love authors like Veronica Roth, Suzanne Collins and George R.R Martin. These days I also love to read self-published authors, one of my favorites at the moment is Bella Forrest. She rocks!

How long will “The Dragon’s Throne” series be?

I expect to be able to tell the story that I want to tell within 4 books. But the world I have created here is so huge and so there is lot of possibilities for spin-offs featuring other characters and or even for the main couple to go on a new adventure. It all depends on the demand from the fans of course 😉

Is Lucy Fear your real name?

I wish! Lucy is my real first name but when writing books as sexy as this I thought it best to use a pseudonym. I am not sure I want my kids to accidentally read some of this material if they ever saw their mom’s name on the Internet.

On that note, just how sexy is this book?

I would like to think it is just the right amount of sexy. The plot is the main strength but the romance and the chemistry is fairly detailed. I guess you will have to download a copy and decide for yourself 🙂

Body in the Woods (A Reverend Annabelle Dixon Cozy Mystery Book 3)

by Alison Golden

Buried bones. A boy. And tales of lost loves.

When a young boy is running home through the woods, he finds a bone: a forearm to be precise; a human forearm. This discovery sets in motion the reopening of a cold case that Reverend Annabelle Dixon, it seems, simply can’t leave alone.
In the quiet and relatively uneventful village of Upton St. Mary, gossip arises as word spreads that a body has been found in the woods. Once the investigation begins, the forensic team believes that it has been there for over a decade. But the question remains: who was buried there all those years ago?

In the sequel to Murder at the Mansion, Reverend Annabelle finds herself, once again, in amongst the thick of the investigation. With her knack for gaining people’s trust, winkling out their secrets, and piecing clues together, Annabelle is determined to solve the mystery.

In Body in the Woods, there are laugh out loud moments as Annabelle gets herself into plenty of scrapes. There is also a newcomer to the village with his heart set on love, antagonism with her crush, Inspector Nicholls, and Philippa, her church secretary, once more supplying Annabelle with gossip, cake, and her own little puzzle that gets Annabelle a-thinking.

Included in this book are recipes for:

– Ecclesiastical Chocolate Ã?clairs
– Divine Chocolate Dipped Shortbread
– Rapturous Raspberry Cheesecake
– Annabelle’s Favorite Apricot Tart
– Saintly Strawberry Cupcakes

Interview with the Author of the Series

Q – So, what makes the Reverend Annabelle Dixon series special?

A – Annabelle. When I set out to write these books, I wanted to create a series that featured a heart-warming, smart, sometimes ditzy, ultimately good protagonist that we all undisputedly adore. It is Annabelle – her humanity, her empathy, her big heart – who makes the series so special. With her sometimes partner, sometimes antagonist, Inspector Mike Nicholls, they create some fun and drama as the small town mysteries unfold with humor and intrigue.

If you enjoy the TV series’, The Vicar of Dibley, Miranda, or Midsomer Murders, I think you will enjoy the Reverend Annabelle cozy mysteries.

Q – In what order should I read the books?

A РThe Reverend Annabelle Dixon cozy mysteries can be read, and enjoyed, in any order. The prequel, Death at the Caf̩ is set in London and takes place a few years before the rest in the series. All the books are complete mysteries.

If you do want to read them in order, I’d suggest the following sequence:

Death at the Café (prequel)
Murder at the Mansion
Body in the Woods

Q – Why should readers give these books a try?

A – Because the Reverend Annabelle series is a gentle, but colorful romp through the beautiful English countryside in a place that is picturesque and peaceful on the outside but one filled with amoral and snobbish eccentrics with all kinds of vices on the inside.

Annabelle is a fun, uncomplicated character who is soulful, devout, smart, and funny with penchant for cake. Both Jamie and I are English and we feature many English countryside rituals, institutions and customs in these stories.

Ultimately, readers who enjoy gentle pacing with a plot that twists and turns, features much fun, drama, quintessential Britishness, and small town murder all the way to the end will get a kick out of this series. It will make you laugh and you will, I hope, become invested in the characters and be rooting for them to come out on top.

Switch: A Bad Boy Romance

by Michelle Amy

It was him.

I stopped walking. Carly looked back at me with pleading eyes.

I looked over my shoulder.

It was him. I couldn’t see his face as he wove through bodies and tables in the bar. He moved with the same lazy gait that he had that night. Women’s eyes all around flicked to him as he cut between them. Men eased out of his way when they saw him coming. He didn’t seem to notice the immediate reactions of those surrounding him. It was clear that he had one purpose: get to the bar.

My eyes lingered on the line of his broad shoulders and how his muscles moved beneath the thin fabric of his shirt. I couldn’t help but let my gaze fall to his bare forearms. His sleeves were rolled up to his elbows, revealing arms decorated in veins and bare wrists. The rest of him was impossible to see through the sea of people in the bar. He was hidden behind red dresses and swirling skirts as he made his way through a few intoxicated dancers.

I still couldn’t see his face as he grew closer. Carly was tugging on my elbow and pleading with me to go with her. He was too close for me to miss my chance to see what he really looked like. I would finally have the opportunity to find out if he was really worth all the fantasizing that had consumed me for the last week.

*Switch is a Bad Boy Romance with an HEA, no cheating, and part of an exhilarating series.
