What do you do when the guy you’re in love with is seeing someone else? That’s the dilemma facing Paige Taylor. All of her life she’s only ever had eyes for the gorgeous Alec Wright, but despite their undeniable chemistry, their timing has always been off. Fast approaching her thirtieth birthday, Paige despairs of ever finding love and a happy ever after. Her best friend Poppie tells her that she can either watch life pass her by, or grab it with both hands. She convinces Paige to throw herself back into the dating pool, or she could be waiting for Alec forever. What Paige didn’t expect was the catalogue of dating disasters to follow. A neck brace, jelly fish, stitches, flashing and an encounter with a gorilla were some of the most memorable. Despite some downright hilarious, humiliating and cringe worthy dates, her biological clock is ticking and Paige is determined to keep trying until she finds the one. Was Alec Wright always her Mr. Right, or is he still out there waiting to be found? Join Paige in her quest to find the ultimate prize. Love.

Millie is unlucky in love and when her long term relationship ends like a soap opera story line, she takes drastic action.

In Jesse Connor’s eyes his life would be simple if it consisted of three things.  His ranch, his cattle and his horses.  But it doesn’t- for one, there’s his young daughter, Adeline, who is fighting for his love and attention because he’s the only parent she has.  Then there is Millie Braithwaite-that damn beautiful English woman.
 
Millie & Jesse are two broken souls who are both fighting against the inevitable, because they both know that this time their hearts could be shattered beyond repair.

#PromoBlitz ~ More Than Skin Deep by @MargoBondCollin @PureTextuality

Shifting’s more than skin deep. And terror goes to the bone.

Having eliminated the shifter community’s stalker and agreed to care for a pile of new baby lamias, child counselor and weresnake Lindi Parker believes she’ll be able to settle into her newly domestic life with her mongoose-shifter boyfriend, Kade Nevala.

But she didn’t count on being on duty at her new job as a Shifter Shield when a hyena-shifter shows up requesting asylum—along with his girlfriend. She’s a Hunter from a hereditary clan of monster trackers, and a semi-mythical figure of dread among shifters. Worse, they have an entire werewolf pack after them, howling for their blood.

Now they’re after Lindi, too.

#BlogTour #GuestPost ~ Across Great Divides by Monique Roy @MonWriter1 @NeverlandBT

Across Great Divides is a timeless, World War II story of the upheavals of war, the power of family, and the resiliency of human spirit. When Hitler comes to power in 1933, one Jewish family refuses to be destroyed and defies the Nazis only to come up against another struggle—confronting Apartheid in South Africa.

Sixteen-year-old Eva and her twin sister, Inge, witness their lives in Berlin change before their eyes. Their best friend, Trudy, betrays them when she becomes a member of the Hitler Youth. A valuable family heirloom, a beautiful emerald and diamond pendant necklace, is confiscated by the Nazis as they harass Jewish families and businesses.

Their younger brother, Max, a member of the underground resistance, sees even greater danger ahead.
Their father, Oskar, refuses to leave his beloved Germany and believes Hitler will eventually fail.

They finally flee Nazi Germany with the help of the underground resistance —a young German man, a nun, a countess conspiring against the Nazis, and a winegrower secretly hiding Jewish children.

War continues to follow them until they arrive in Cape Town, South Africa. The family hires an impoverished colored woman, Zoe, as their maid and shields her and her daughter, Zola, from the dangers they face in the slums and from the horrors of Apartheid, which are all too reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

Across Great Divides illuminates a Jewish family in Germany in WWII caught in significant 20th century travesties: the Nazi occupation of Europe during World War Two and Apartheid in South Africa.

Meet the Author
Monique Roy

The inspiration for my historical novel, Across Great Divides, came from growing up in a family that sought unceasingly to find peace. Writing was always a strong passion of mine. As a child, I used to pen imaginative stories in a journal that my parents gave me. I always knew that I wanted to and had to write a novel about how my European Jewish grandparents fled Nazi Europe and landed up in Cape Town, South Africa, where I was born.

Knowing that there were so many unique and amazing stories already published about Jews fleeing Europe during World War II, I knew that the South African twist in Across Great Divides was an unusual one. Long ago, my grandfather gave 13-typed pages to his five grandchildren, describing their life in Europe from the time Hitler came to power. My parents, two brothers and I emigrated from South Africa to Dallas, Texas in 1980, and unfortunately, my grandparents were never able to sit down and tell us their story. The pages that illuminated my grandparent’s story were a great inspiration and provided a good starting point for my story. My grandparents passed away many years ago, so I was unable to ask them important questions of how they fled Europe, how they attained visas, how they felt when they lived in apartheid South Africa, and many more questions that I struggled with and desired to know. Instead, I was forced to dig much deeper, into my own creativity and the resources available to me, to create a fictional story that was essentially based on truth of how a Jewish family refused to be destroyed and defied the Nazis only to come up against another struggle—confronting apartheid in South Africa. Across Great Divides is a timeless story of the upheavals of war, the power of family, and the resiliency of human spirit.

The novel connects two of the 20th century’s great travesties: the Nazi occupation of Europe and apartheid in South Africa. The book is a hauntingly beautiful story of faith, family, and redemption, centered in one of the darkest periods in human history. This is a tale of one family’s struggle to survive in a world tainted with hate, capturing the raw emotion of the time, and the power of love that held them all together.

#BlogTour #Excerpt ~ Ice Cold Alice by C.P. Wilson @bellshillwilson @bloodhoundbook #BlogHounds

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour today. Isn’t that cover eerily stunning!? Whenever I decline a book for review due to time pressure I always immediately regret it, while I couldn’t read this in advance of the tour I will certainly be adding it to my TBR. I have heard some great comments about it in the blogging community.

They thought that they had all the power, until she took it from them.

A killer hunts abusive spouses, blogging about their sins post-kill. Soon the murders and the brazen journaling draws the attention of Police Scotland’s CID.

This killer works with surgical preparation, precision and skill, using a unique weapon of her own and never leaves a trace of evidence behind.

Edinburgh’s DI Kathy McGuire, nearing the end of her career, begins the hunt for the murderer as a media frenzy erupts. But McGuire might have met her match…

What has led this killer to take the law into her own hands?

Is the woman accountable really a cold-hearted killer or a desperate vigilante?

Ice Cold Alice, by CP Wilson, is the first volume in a Psychological Thriller series featuring ‘Tequila Mockingbird’, a serial-killer who hunts abusive men. The following excerpt is a sneak preview of the opening chapter of Book 2, currently titled Alice in Anger. The preview introduces a horrific new adversary for Alice.

Chapter 1

Salt and iron sting inside your nose, waking you from the deepest of sleeps. Still drowsing, you breathe the scents of the room in more deeply. At the humid-coppery scent neurones fire, relaying panic to your central nervous system. A single moment passes, during which your mind has put the pieces together but has yet to inform your consciousness. You rub the side of your cheek and temple against something soft and warm. With the motion, the limits of your body become perceptible. Awareness of your skin, your limbs and the silence around you trickles in. Your naked skin feels clammy, sticky with something warm but cooling in the flow of a draught crossing the room. Comfort crests and is instantly shattered as your brain fits the disparate pieces of sensory input into a single sharp conclusion.
Blood.
Your hands shake almost imperceptibly. The gentlest of tremors borne of excitement or fear or exhaustion, you do not know and scarcely care.
Some rarely explored, dormant section of your mind cries, not again, but the pitiful denial barely registers in your conscious thoughts.

Your eyes slide open as though of their own volition. Bright light pierces, causing you to narrow your eyes until they’re almost closed once again. Eyes slits, you sit to swing your legs over the edge of the sofa, resting your bare feet on a wooden floor. Sticky, viscous liquid pools around your toes. Eyes widen instantly and the room comes into dreadful focus.

Sat at the end of a very large couch, you crane your neck, directing your gaze to your left. Three people sit on the couch along with you. Two kids… your kids… and their mother. Your wife is naked. The kids have their underwear still in place, an inadequate scrap protecting a dignity that no longer matters to anyone aside from yourself.
Blackness edges in around your vision. With great effort you force your eyes to focus. Sliding off of the couch you come to your knees, facing the bodies of your family. The blood on the floor sloshes at your knees and splashes up onto your thighs.
Abbie, your wife, sits with her left arm around your son, her fingertips brushing the shoulder of your little girl. On Abbie’s thigh, crimson smears where your cheek had lain. The twins, nine years old, have their chins laid on their chests, their lifeless corpses slumped in a seated position, similar to their mother’s. Cody’s face looks peaceful, he could be sleeping if it weren’t for the slackness of his expression. Keira’s is a mask of fear. Without intending to you reach out to hold her little face in your hands, attempting to rearrange her unfamiliar expression. Her upper-body slumps forward at your tentative touch. Keira falls into your arms.
A bestial moan escapes from you as you lift her into my embrace. Cradling your daughter in the manner you had when she was still an infant, you scan Julia and Cody’s faces and bodies.
Abbie has a wide, long cut across her throat allowing blood to flow down to pool in the fabric and padding of the sofa until it has dripped to collect underneath, spreading out across the floor as a macabre indication of how long they’ve lain dead.
Each of them bears a small incision high up on the right of their abdomens. A surgical cut, their body wounds look to have bled little. A deliberate shift of Keira’s legs, hung over your right forearm, nudges her against her brother. The movement causes his body to fall forward, bringing his mother with him.
They crash heavily onto you and Keira, all loose-limbs and dead momentum. Under the unmoving mass of your entire family pinning you to the floor, you are abruptly distracted by frantic screaming. It takes you several long moments to realise that the despairing, shrill noise is coming from your own throat. You shove feebly at Keira, conflicted between wanting their corpses off of you, and not wanting to hurt her little body, the pressure you exert is laughable. Mercifully, you feel the blackness edging once again. This time, you accept its embrace as an old friend, leaving the indescribable agony behind.

#BlogTour #GuestPost Q&A~ Meet Me at Wisteria Cottage by @Teresa_Morgan10 @HarperImpulse

I’m thrilled it’s my turn on the blog tour today for #MeetMeAtWisteriaCottage  Teresa has kindly answered some questions about the book below.

A Cornish Escape
After her house is set on fire and her love life is left in tatters, Maddy Hart can’t believe her luck when a friend offers her the temporary haven of Wisteria Cottage. Overlooking the turquoise blue waters of the Cornish coast, the fresh air feels like a fresh start for her and her broken heart.
Peeking out of the cosy cottage windows, Maddy’s surprised to see her gorgeous but insufferable neighbour Harry Tudor has been employed to landscape the garden. But as the wisteria winding its way around the cottage begins to bloom, an unlikely friendship starts to blossom…

About the Author

Teresa F Morgan lives in sunny Weston-super-Mare, trying to hold onto her Surrey accent where she originates from.

For years she persevered with boring jobs, until her two boys (and a budgie called Rio) joined her nest. In an attempt to find something to work around them, and to ensure she never endured full time boredom again, Teresa found writing.

Family holidays in Cornwall have lead to the scenic Cornish coastline and the city of Bristol being the back drop for Teresa’s novels.

She’s at her happiest baking cakes, putting proper home cooked dinners on the table (whether the kids eat them or not), reading a good romance, or sitting at her PC emptying her thoughts onto the screen.

Teresa loves writing contemporary romance, stories with a touch of escapism and creating heroes readers will fall in love with.

I love the quick examples of how to describe the book hero/ines Twitter style! Over to Teresa ……

Describe your hero in 140 characters?
Helpful, kind, thoughtful but troubled ex-fireman, now landscape gardener with a hot body. Fancies his neighbour although won’t admit it.

Describe your heroine in 140 characters?
Fiery, artistic and desperate not to turn into her mother. Finds her neighbour insufferable, constantly flaunting his shirtless torso.

What’s so special about your hero that makes your heroine fall in love with him?
Harry becomes Maddy’s rock, I suppose. He’s helpful and kind, as well as incredibly sexy. He was supposed to be the reluctant hero, but the firefighter in him has to help people.

Why do you like writing romance?
I love experimenting with relationships and the conflicts between a man and a woman trying to make a relationship work.

Which of your characters is your favourite, and why?
Valerie. She’s based a little on my dear writer friend Mary, who passed away recently. Mary had a passion for champagne, and was incredibly wise, a great fount of information and advice. I will miss her terribly at our RNA chapter.

What things inspire you to write? Location, music, film or even in a book?
With this novel, Cornwall inspired me. I’ve holidayed in Polzeath for the last twelve years, and I based Tinners Bay on the small seaside town. It has a gallery, and I remember a friend owning one years ago, in Woolacombe, where I used to holiday as a child.

Are you nervous about friends reading your book?
Yes always! I’m so worried people will hate it. It’s so lovely when I get told they thoroughly enjoyed the escapism. It’s what I wanted to achieve with my books. Third book published, and I still have that mixed feeling of elation and anxiety. Not sure if it will ever go away.

Extract

“People and animals come together in herd-communities with their own kind exclusively to a single end. Each individual strives to preserve their own genes but achieving that alone can become extremely difficult or even impossible.
It is easier to find a partner for the realisation of the basic instinct as a member of a herd and so ultimately, the prime principle in play is still the Law of Gene Preservation. It is easier to defend oneself from a more powerful enemy as a member of a herd. A pack of hyenas, for example, can face down a powerful predator like a lion, whereas an individual hyena would have no chance. In a herd it is easier to hunt and gather large sources of food, which it would be impossible for a lone animal to find. This is the case for lions, wolves and all other herd predators, including mankind.
The unification of human beings into ever larger communities, beginning with tribes and clans in prehistoric times, then nations and states in the Middle Ages, continues today in the process called world globalisation. The reason for globalisation is the same as it was a thousand years ago. It provides the best conditions for preserving one’s own gene.
However, the communal existence provided by the herd develops a code of collective behaviour among its members which is required for this type of coexistence to be possible, namely, mutual support and assistance, as we saw in the examples of the elephants and dolphins.
The human collective behavioural code has acquired a particularly complex form but despite all this, the species preservation instinct instantly disappears when it is no longer necessary or when it conflicts with the Law of Gene Preservation, which remains the dominant factor in any set of circumstances.
Usually the entire herd serves to preserve the gene of the dominant family, helping to raise its offspring. But as soon as a non-dominant male tries to realise its own Law of Gene Preservation and approaches the harem of the dominant male, it will be immediately expelled from the herd or even killed by the dominant male, who fearing the intrusion of a foreign gene into his harem first and foremost perceives a threat to the preservation of its own gene. Young sexually mature males tend to drop out of the herd, exercising their own right to gene preservation. No herd can prevent them doing so, however strong their bonds.
Here you can see, that the Law of Gene Preservation is primary, and the species preservation instinct is secondary.”
