About the Book
Hero of Her Heart – S.L. Hughson

Nicole Taylor has loved Vincent for years. Now he’s back from serving in the Army, and she’s determined to make him see her as something other than a little sister.

After a heated Valentine’s date, Nicole is confused by Vince’s withdrawal. She confronts him, but no matter how hot their physical attraction, he keeps backing away.

Nicole helps him follow his lifelong dreams but he drifts further from her happily-ever-after plans. What will it take for him to see he is truly the hero of her heart?

Feathers – T.E.Hodden

Kerry only wanted to do right by Christopher. To protect him from the whispers of ‘coward’ and the shame of a white feather.

But the war doesn’t look like a grand adventure any more. All Kerry wants is Chris home safe. But will he still be the same man she once knew?

A Manly Man – Jean Young

Confederate POW, Braxton Bolton, had an unexpected visitor the day before his execution, when Arabella Anderson walked into his jail cell and, in front of other POWs, kissed him until he shook with desire.

Two years prior, she had been the Lieutenant Colonel’s prisoner. While she was tortured and raped by the other Confederate soldiers, Bolton was different. He protected her from further suffering, and the grateful young woman had come to repay his kindness. While they became more and more intimate, she learned the story behind his kindness.

But what she learned turned the sweet girl into a fearsome warrior, one determined to save the soldier with a noble heart.

Goin’ Home – Philip Lisagor

How will Jack be able to put Iraq behind him and return home to Leah and their two children? The green peaceful coast of Ireland is the perfect landing zone from the brown violent landscape of Mesopotamia. Jack is humping ruck along the North Atlantic coast when a chance encounter with an Irish maiden turns him all around and he hears the voice of Leah in a magical moment calling him home.

The Promise – London Saint James

The year Veronica turned twenty-two changed her life. She graduated from San Diego State University, married the handsome Lieutenant Carter Weis—widowed six months after the happy nuptials.

Captain Quinn Alstrom of the U.S. Coast Guard was eager to start his newest post; however the excitement had nothing to do with the beautiful surroundings of Key West, and everything to do with his best friend’s wife.

Will Quinn’s surprise arrival in Veronica’s life re-spark the fire in the vivacious woman he remembered? Or, will the memory of her fallen husband stop the two of them from finding happiness?

Promises Kept – Terri Rochenski

Ever since they were kids, Joan dreamed of being Walt Herley’s wife. But, Joan’s dream is short-lived when the Korean War draft has Walt trading his groom’s suit for army fatigues. After a short celebration of their rushed nuptials, Walt is whisked away to fulfill his duty to his country, leaving Joan behind with a promise to return.

With her heart a world away, Joan struggles to keep her spirit afloat while praying for the war’s expedient end. Fate, however, has a plan of its own, one that threatens Joan’s faith in Walt’s promise to return.

Promises Kept  – Terri Rochenski

Ever since they were kids, Joan dreamed of being Walt Herley’s wife. But, Joan’s dream is short-lived when the Korean War draft has Walt trading his groom’s suit for army fatigues. After a short celebration of their rushed nuptials, Walt is whisked away to fulfill his duty to his country, leaving Joan behind with a promise to return.

With her heart a world away, Joan struggles to keep her spirit afloat while praying for the war’s expedient end.  Fate, however, has a plan of its own, one that threatens Joan’s faith in Walt’s promise to return.

#

I sat beside my sweetheart on his parent’s Davenport, my hands holding tight to the gored skirt of my new, blue printed dress. The comforting warmth of Walt’s thigh pressed against mine did little to ease the anxiety twisting my stomach.

“When do you leave?” I heard his father ask through the ringing in my ears.

“Ten days,” Walt replied without taking his blue-eyed gaze off me. Lines furrowed between his brows. “Say something, Joan. Please.”

A warm summer breeze from the open window caressed my face as I considered his news and the resulting thoughts clamoring in my mind. He’d been drafted. Beckoned by our government to travel overseas and protect Korean people who couldn’t even speak English. My kind, carefree souled fiancé would be forced to hold a gun. Shoot at people, possibly kill them.

A swell of anger rolled in. I straightened and forced myself to speak. “It’s not fair. It’s not right. You know as much about shooting a gun as I know about changing a car’s oil. Besides, we’re getting married in less than four weeks.”

“I know.” Walt lay a calloused hand atop mine. “But, this is beyond my power.”

I peered down at his grease-stained fingernails. A hardworking mechanic, Walt appreciated I didn’t mind the condition of the skin that would one day soon touch every inch of my body. On the contrary, I appreciated his dedication to work, his desire to provide for our future. “Y-you promised.” My voice broke, but I continued. “You can’t leave.”

Walt’s mother, Janice, sat across from us with her husband. Her escaped sob made me clench my eyes shut to keep my own tears from escaping.

“Please.” I grasped his hands and lifted them to my breast. “You don’t have to go—”

“He’s going,” Walt’s father said.

I wanted to scream my frustration, but when Mr. Herley used that tone, no one argued.

“Like his father and grandfather, he’ll answer the call and fulfill his duty.”

I glanced down at Mr. Herley’s pinned pant leg where his lower left leg should have been. A shiver swept through me, raising the hairs on my arms. Would my love return harmed by bullets? Would he return at all?

He was nobody’s hero until he landed in the wrong bed …

Armed with a golden retriever and a concealed weapons permit, Lena Clark is fighting for normal. She served her country, but the experience left her emotionally numb and estranged from her career-military family. Staying in Independence Falls seems like the first step to reclaiming her life until the town playboy stumbles into her bed …

Chad Summers is living his dream—helicopter logging by day and slipping between the sheets with Mrs. Right Now by night. Until his wild nights threaten his day job, leaving Chad with a choice: prove he can settle down or kiss his dream goodbye. But when he ends up in the wrong bed, the one woman in Independence Falls he can’t touch offers a tempting proposition. Chad is ready and willing to give in to the primal desire to make Lena his at night—on one condition. By day, they pretend their relationship is real.

But their connection extends beyond the bedroom, threatening to turn their sham into reality if Chad can prove he’s the hero Lena needs night and day … forever.

Blurb:

The final chapters in Raven and Lexi’s epic love story that began with Opposing Sides.

Having been through hell and back, Raven and Lexi beat the odds stacked against them and came out on the winning side together. For the past several months, Raven’s been working hard to show Lexi he can be the husband she deserves and the father their soon-to-be born twins need. Playing pro-football is proving to be more challenging than they thought.

As the weeks pass and her due date nears, old demons resurface, threatening to destroy what they’ve worked hard to rebuild. The birth of their twins reminds them despite long practice sessions, football games, and the holidays, what’s most important is the greatest gift of all: love.

**This novella takes place before the epilogue in The Winning Side and A Different Side. This is a standalone story, but it is recommended you read the series.**

 

Excerpt:

I pulled into the park and stopped a few feet shy of the valet stop. Night had set in and the weather was a nice sixty degrees. Perfect for a train ride and a stroll through the park.

“We’re here.” I leaned over and helped Lexi remove the mask.

“Oh wow.” She blinked a few times and looked around. “This is beautiful, Raven.” She peered out the window like kid anxious to run through an amusement park. “Do they always decorate the park with Christmas lights?”

“Yes, Celebration in the Oaks has been a New Orleans’s traditions since I can remember.”

“How fun.”

“I bought us tickets for a train ride, which takes us around the park to see the Christmas lights.”

“Oh that’s perfect.” She smiled and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

“If you’re up to it, we can walk around afterwards. If not, I understand.” I wasn’t sure if she could handle strolling through the park with her big belly. I felt bad for all the weight she was carrying around.

“Exercise is good for me, so I don’t mind.”

“We’ll see how you feel after the train ride.” I pulled forward to the valet porter.

“Okay.”

We got out of the vehicle and walked toward the train station. Festive holiday music played and thousands of lights twinkled in a variety of colors. Some outlined the huge oak trees and others draped the moss-covered cypress trees. Various lighted displays were spread throughout the park creating a magical winter spectacular. Decorated Christmas trees lined the walkway giving it a cozy, intimate feel.

“This reminds me of last year when you took me to downtown Fort Worth and we went ice skating.”

“I know.” I laced my fingers through hers. “This was the weekend we hooked up and you stayed with me.”

Lexi stopped and turned to me. “Oh no…”

“Happy Anniversary, baby.”

She covered her face with her hand. “How could I forget?”

“It’s okay.” I chuckled. “You got a lot going on.”

“Not more than you.” Disappointment laced her beautiful features. “No wonder you gave me the diamond earrings during dinner.” She shook her head. “I thought you were giving me an early Christmas gift. I’m such a loser.”

“No you’re not.” I drew Lexi close to me. “You’re about to give birth to twins. I don’t think that puts you anywhere in the loser category.”

“But I didn’t buy you anything.” Her hands rested on my chest.

My eyes wandered behind her as the deep voices tried to enter my head. Telling me Lexi would never marry me. That she’d never be my wife. That all of this was just temporary. I shook my head and aligned my eyes with her. “There’s only one thing I want from you, Lexi.”

Her gaze tore from mine. “I know. Please be patient with me. Okay?”

I lifted her chin, bringing our gazes together again. “I already told you, I’m not going anywhere.”

“Good. Because I’m not going to let you.” She smiled and then backed away, latching on to my hand. “Come on, let’s go have some fun. I might not be able to ice skate, but we can at least enjoy the lights.”

“You got it, baby.”

We boarded the train for the two-mile ride around the park. We laughed and talked the entire time as we passed the blinking Christmas displays, which included the animated Cajun Night Before Christmas display and the iconic snowman, Mr. Bingle, a New Orleans’ favorite. It was fun and festive and by the smile on Lexi’s face, I knew she was having a good time.

“The lights were beautiful,” Lexi said, as I helped her step off the train. “I’m so glad you thought of this.”

“I wasn’t sure it would be a good idea, since you were so far along.”

She waved off my comment. “I’m pregnant, not handicap.”

“I know, but it can’t be easy lugging around two babies.”

“It’s not.” She huffed. “But it’s only temporary.”

“Thank, God.” I wrapped my arm around her. “Because I miss you lying naked on top of me.”

A soft moan escaped her lips. “I miss that, too.”

“How long do we have to wait?” I cautiously asked.

Her eyes darted to the sky. “I think six weeks, but it might be longer for C-section. I don’t know, but don’t let me forget to ask.”

“Don’t worry, I won’t.” Apparently I wasn’t the only one missing the great sex.

“So, have you decided on the names?” I held up my arm, pointing at my watch. “Times ticking.”

“I know.” Lexi nodded repeatedly. “But this isn’t my decision alone. You have to agree, too.”

“Okay. Then let’s decide tonight.” I spotted a vendor selling coffee and pastries.

“You want something?”

“Do you have to ask?” She winked. “You know my weakness.”

How can things you only glimpse for a moment sear themselves into your memory?
~Alessandra, Mobster’s Bones

Alessandra has a problem. It’s not that the Mafia is the only life she knows, her father and best friend being members.

She’s being followed. Her stalker destroys the one thing Alessandra thought they could never touch. She’s now forced to flee the only home she’s known, Palmetto.

How can someone be so beautiful? The morning sunlight is coming through the blinds on my window casting a glow around Alessandra. She has been here for a week, and we have fallen into a routine. It is sort of like she has always been here. Imagining her leaving, gives me an unwanted stone in my stomach.
~ Troy, Mobster’s Bones

Troy has his life planned out perfectly; graduate from Notre Dame with honors, get married, live a quiet life with his wife and kids in the suburbs. Just like his parents and their parents before them.

Things don’t work out according to plan – the scaffolding of his life is crumbling before his eyes. Troy’s plans didn’t include the daughter of a mob enforcer showing up at his door and sleeping in his bed. Are Alessandra and her mafia family worth throwing away the life Troy has always wanted?

excerpt

Alessandra

My heels click too loudly on the cement sidewalk. I’m moving fast. My fist tightens around the strap on my bag, and I pick up my already hurried pace. I shoot a quick look behind me. No one is there, but I know they are, watching me. My shoulders tighten like someone threw an ice cube down the back of my shirt. The Saturday night special in my purse should comfort me but it doesn’t; I can’t fire at shadows. I’m too nervous to even pull out my phone.

I know better than to be out on the streets at night even in a town where my dad is a Capo. I have never been afraid. I really haven’t had a reason to be. Best friends with the mob boss’s son, Antonio, my father a bad-ass enforcer for the Delisi family make it a no-brainer. Stay the fuck away from me.

Street and porch lights on symmetrical houses flit by, illuminating the cracked pavement then casting it into darkness. I’m two houses away and the pavement stretches before me like miles of empty wilderness. My breathing is labored. Echoing in my ears are abrupt huffs of air in tandem with rushing blood.

My house!

I run up the stairs and unlock the front door, throwing myself into the living room. I slam it behind me and click the lock. I turn, leaning up against it, exhausted. I kick off my shoes and slide down to the floor.

Why is this happening to me? This is destroying me. A tear pricks the corner of my eye. It is shredding me to pieces one eerie bit at a time. I realize paranoia is consuming me as I pull my legs up tight to my chest. I wrap my arms around them and bury my head. I have to tell someone. I will look weak, but I have to. I can’t take this anymore.

Summer is finally here and Geography teacher Sara Larson has exactly one month to find the perfect date for the wedding of a high school rival. The odds seem stacked against her, but the last thing she wants is to sit at the kids’ table again. Or even worse, the singles’ table. While trudging through an assortment of certified losers, Sara fights her attraction towards Ian, the irresistible guy next door.

Art teacher Ian McBride has a dream of opening his own gallery, but for now he’s focused on sculpting a gift for his grandparents’ 50th anniversary and enjoying a relaxing summer. However, Ian is blind-sided when crazy, beautiful Sara and her giant dog move in next door and rock his world. Too bad she wants nothing to do with him.

How can Sara avoid the attraction that sizzles between them and stick to her rule of not dating neighbors? As far as Ian’s concerned, the prince Sara is looking for is right under her nose. And one kiss just might change everything.

About the Book

Jaxon Tagget is a cattle-rancher’s son, born and raised on the Double T, just outside of Dillon, Montana. In love with his high-school sweetheart, Annie, Jaxon proposes on graduation night, presenting her with a wedding ring made from gold he mined himself. Annie accepts immediately, to the horror of her bitter, man-hating mother.

Jaxon’s a wonderful husband, but the warnings of Annie’s mother linger in the young bride’s ears. And it doesn’t help that women continue to fall all over the markedly handsome Jaxon.

Unaware of his wife’s persistent doubts, Jaxon is struggling with his own troubles when he finds out his dad is sorely in need of money to save the ranch. But hope glimmers gold when he rediscovers the old mine on the Double T.

While Jaxon travels to verify the mine’s productivity, Annie grows increasingly suspicious. Is Jaxon’s absence what it seems, or does he have another, less faithful reason for his travels? When Annie sees a picture of the beautiful laboratory owner whom Jaxon is visiting, she’s sure the only gold he’s interested in is long, blond hair. Is Annie right, or will it be her doubts that forever sever their Two Hearts?

Book Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of Two Hearts, When I Said I Do, I Meant Forever by James Eric Richey in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I express are my own.

Two Hearts is a love story about high school sweethearts, Jax and Annie, and the challenges they face as they marry and face the realities that life throws their way. The trick is in how they handle it along the way.

Jax and Annie were raised differently in the small town of Dillon, Montana…one in a family filled with hard work, high expectations, loyalty and love; the other in a broken home scarred by the circumstances leading to the divorce, bitterness and the lack of parental involvement. From different backgrounds, Jax and Annie each carry their own baggage.

They leave for college, marry and travel some believable and some less believable roads as they grow together, apart then together again, to live happily. I won’t say it’s a happily-ever-after novel, but I believe that Mr. Richey leaves his novel at a place of hope for their future.

There were parts of the novel that felt under-developed or unnecessary and could use some delicate fine-tuning, but all in all Mr. Richey has written a beautiful story that resonates with the fairytale ending  that I’ve looked for so much of my life.

I definitely recommend Two Hearts by james Eric Richey and give it four steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee.

When her thoughts aren’t roaming in that direction, she’ll be riding horses, swimming in ponds and experiencing life on a ranch, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

A note from Michelle: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I’m convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.

Midnight Eclipse Cover Reveal

 

BBB04_1700x2550

Title: Midnight Eclipse (Bonded by Blood Vampire Chronicles #4)

Author: Arial Burnz

Genre: Paranormal Vampire and Shifters

Setting: Historical

Publish Date: November 7th, 2014

Book 4 – Shetland Islands, 1734 – Shapeshifting Pirates

This paranormal adventure contains a sexy vampire and a kick-ass wolf-shapeshifting heroine. It also contains lots of other sexy shapeshifters, has strong romantic elements with HOT love scenes, and swashbuckling pirate action.

Broderick MacDougal follows the familiar yearning of his soul to a fierce warrior who is as seductive as a siren at sea – and she is just as deadly. The world of the supernatural opens to Broderick as he not only finds himself in the midst of an ancient war of shape shifters, the devious Cordelia Harley has re-entered his life and has a few of her own surprises.

Born into a hated race of Norse werewolves, Celina Hunter knows all too well the dangers of trusting anyone other than her two brothers. And yet the survival of her family hinges on trusting the strangely familiar Broderick MacDougal, a natural enemy of her kind…yet one her tribe’s Shaman advisors confirm is her soul mate. Enemy or not, Celina slips into the spell of this vampire’s promises of eternal love, gambling with all she holds dear.

Broderick and Celina are bound by a curse, but having come this far through the centuries, Broderick is not about to risk his chance at having his soul mate for eternity. The price, however, may be more than Celina is willing to pay as there is more at stake than just her immortal soul.

About the Author

 

Paranormal & Fantasy Fiction Author

ArialBurnz_300x353I’m an author of paranormal and fantasy fiction, and I love all things magical! My adult stories tend to have strong romantic themes and usually some pretty HOT sex, so I do NOT recommend my adult fiction for anyone under the age of 18. You have been warned! However, my young adult and children’s stories (written as Christine Davies) are more than suitable for younger readers. Those stories are also fantasy fiction.

I love to create detailed worlds and very layered plots, creating the type of books I love to sit down before a warm, cozy fire and disappear into another world! I hope you like them, too.

Other little tidbits about me that might interest you:

  • I am a Desert Storm Veteran – I served 5 years in the US Air Force and was stationed in Germany, England and Turkey. I spent a total of 6 years overseas.
  • I am a certified hypnotherapist and the study of psychology is a hobby of mine. (GREAT for character development)
  • For a few years I was an actress and did some voiceover work, which I now apply to the podcast I host at pnrradio.com
  • I was born in Chicago, Illinois (do NOT pronounce that with an “s” at the end…it is silent! Obviously, that’s a pet peeve of mine…lol)
  • My husband and I are planning to retire in Ireland…or at least somewhere overseas.
