  5 of 5 stars
Ms. Kelly is one of my favorite historical romance authors and this book does not disappoint. The reader is plunged into a situation involving governess Victoria Knight that will change the course of her life and not for the better. When she is shipped off to the Highlands of Scotland to be a music teacher to a young Kendrick boy, she can't imagine accepting the post.  His oldest brother, Nick Kendrick is a solemn and scowling Earl and there's nothing inviting about Castle Kinglas. Victoria has worked for difficult employers in the past, but nothing can prepare her for the rowdy household of so many undisciplined Kendrick brothers.

There were so many twists and turns in this book that propels the reader to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. There is plenty of mystery, witty dialogue and smoldering looks in this story. It was my favorite book of the series so far. I hope Ms. Kelly gives Royal Kendrick his own story. He's another Kendrick brother who is hiding so many secrets of his own!

#Review: THE BRIDE WHO GOT LUCKY by Janna MacGregor

5 of 5 stars
What a delightful book! Ms. MacGregor has a flair for creating real characters--their wants, passions, regrets and mistakes. I loved Nick, Earl of Somerton. He had been treated horribly by his cruel father, the Duke of Renton, as a child, but Nick was a survivor and when he grew older, he built a trading empire that made him a very wealthy man. Lots of money and no one to share it with, that is, until he meets Emma Cavensham. With her brother as one of his best friends, he was present at many Cavensham's family events and his admiration for the strong-willed Emma grew. When a scandal threatens to ruin her, Nick steps up and weds her. 

The book kept my interest throughout and I eagerly kept turning the pages to find out what would befall Emma and Nick next. I was not disappointed as Ms. MacGregor painted a masterful stroke of Nick and Emma's relationship. Their passion for each other was undeniable, but even with great love comes misunderstandings and heartache. Would Nick ever learn how to open his heart and fully embrace Emma as his wife and partner in life? Fans of Regency romance will definitely enjoy this book.

#Review: THE SCOT'S BRIDE by Paula Quinn

  4 of 5 stars
Patrick MacGregor is a rogue who is thoroughly enjoying his rakish ways as he traveled to visit his uncles, that is, until he is captivated by a beautiful young woman. Charlotte "Charlie" Cunningham doesn't trust men and when Patrick tries to approach her, she knocks him out with her sling. When he is brought back to her family home, Patrick hides his identify as kin to the Cunningham's enemy, the Fergusons. The more he talks to Charlie, the more he is cast under her spell--not only her beauty, but her kind heart as she helps the villagers who struggle under her father and brother's harsh rule. Patrick resists falling for her and Charlie refuses to get close to the rake.

Ms. Quinn has written another wonderful story with witty banter and fully-fleshed out characters. I loved how Patrick's compassion and kind heart was slowly revealed, but I found there was too much internal dialogue for both characters. The same things were repeated over and over again and that got old pretty fast. There was a good twist at the end that kept me turning the pages. Fans of Scottish romances will definitely enjoy this story.

#Excerpt: SON OF THE MOON by Jennifer Macaire

Alexander opened his eyes very wide. “Me? Me? I did that? You weren’t even there. Do you want to know what you can do with me?” He leered. “Tell me some more stories about sex-mad queens and priestesses. They sound quite entertaining, but wait until we’re alone. I don’t want to miss a word you say.”

I narrowed my eyes. “If I find out that that you...”

“If I what?” he asked cheerfully.

I didn’t answer. I was looking over his shoulder at a figure in the distance. He must have seen the look on my face because he whirled around. For a moment he didn’t move. Then he dug his heels into Bucephalus’s sides, and, with a wild whoop, galloped madly down the dusty road leaving me staring after him with a bemused expression.

Chiron wriggled on my back and started to whine. I  dropped my reins and unhooked the backpack, pulling him around to my chest. Holding the baby on front of me, I said to him, “There goes my husband, rushing to greet his best friend whom he hasn’t seen in over three months - his best friend who just happens to be your daddy.”

I spoke in English. I didn’t think anyone else would quite understand the complexities of the situation, which I’d already edited for Chiron’s ears. The soldiers around me thought I said blessings. Chiron waved and gurgled happily at my breast. All he was interested in was milk. I could never understand why Chiron seemed to be the only human being who didn’t mind Alexander’s singing. It made most babies turn purple and scream. At first I was worried that he was deaf, but then I realized Chiron was just a little oddball. He would probably turn into one of those weird kids who love broccoli and algebra.

The sun shined, the flags flapped merrily, the soldiers sang, and the Indus River, huge, brown, and deceptively sluggish, flowed like caramel by our sides.

We were in India!



In Nysa, Alexander the Great and time traveling journalist Ashley find their abducted son Paul being worshiped as ""the son of the moon"". Knowing she can’t change history and that Alexander’s kingdom will be torn apart when he dies, Ashley must make the terrible decision to leave her firstborn son in the sacred valley.

Alexander presses on to India, where he and Ashley are welcomed with feasts - and treachery.  They struggle through monsoons, face the might of Porus’s army, and outwit deadly Brahmin rebels. Facing the reality of Alexander’s looming death, Ashley considers the unthinkable - How to save him, and the consequences of cheating the Fates. Book III in the Time for Alexander series"

Interview with Andrew Anzur Clement, KEEPERS OF THE STONE

Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?
My books are  period-adventure fantasy novels set in the late 1880's. They follow the adventures of Malka, a mixed raced Indian girl, who unknowingly embarks on a quest to protect a mystical jewel from the designs of the nefarious order of the Urumi. She is aided by mysterious shape-changing allies, real historical figures and notes that appear from thin air. 
Keepers of the Stone is a set of three books and it's also part of a larger series. I'm currently writing the sequel trilogy to Keepers under the title Voyages of Fortune. I hope to have it out sometime next year.

Do you have a favorite character?
One of my friends tells me that I have a weakness for protagonist-antagonist characters. I'm not exception when it comes to my own books. Bozhena is an unwilling member of the Order of the Urumi. A cult of satanic servants, all of whom must undergo the Transmutation -- a process that gives one superhuman abilities of speed and instantaneous teleportation, but also robs one of free will. Consigned into the Order by her father -- a member of the Russified Polish gentry --  she grimly pursues Malka, a trained thief and killer, as well as her sarcastic were-cat protector. The two have come into the possession of a mystical jewel; the Urumi seek its power to unleash destruction in the world. Bozhena's internal conflicts and mental blocks ultimately determine the course that history's future will take.         

Have you ever had a minor character evolve into a major one? Did that change the direction of the novel at all?
Yes.  My main character's nemesis from childhood, Zaima. I originally included the name just as a throw-away detail in the first chapter, as Malka takes votive offerings from the camp in the Sect where she's been raised. At that point, I implied that Zaima was someone who Malka didn't particularly care for. Yet over time she evolved into a full-fledged character that not only came to leave a lasting impression on Malka's own self-concept during her upbringing. But, in so doing, changes the course of events that Malka's quest will take in the end, as well.    

What factors influenced your decision to self-publish your book(s)?
While I was writing these Keepers of the Stone, I attended a seminar at one of the universities where I do my PhD research, regarding non-academic career paths. Though my field of research is in the social and political sciences, the most useful advice I got came from a writer who'd been brought in to speak to the humanities students. He basically warned against adopting what he called the 'temple mentality:' A strategy in which one figuratively kneels in front of the closed  'temple doors' of great publishing houses or film studios in the hopes of being invited in. Especially in a world of self-publishing and desktop editing he said, "If they smell money, they'll come after you. And if not? Then you've had a fun time doing something you love."
If you used a graphic designer/publisher’s designer, how involved were you during the creative process for your cover?
Very involved. I'm not a visual person at all and don't think I have ever bought a book based off of the cover art. Yet, working with a graphic designer required me to pay more attention to these sorts of details. Of course, it's not reasonable that a cover designer is going to read all three of the manuscripts cover to cover  in order to do a design for the books. This meant that, especially  with character representations, I needed to be quite involved with searching for images that I liked and then asking designer to find similar ones. I think each of the three covers went through over five separate revisions.    

What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
I'm a huge opera fan, and often come up with many of my plot lines while listing to music or at the opera house. But, when in the writing 'zone' I prefer...no I need silence in order to escape into my world and let my characters talk to me. 

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
I start out with a very vague idea of where the story is going to go in my head and maybe a few key events or elements that I want to include along the way. But, I fill in most of the plot and character developments as I go along.  This often results in interesting situations as I come to the end of a book or plot line. The idea for what needs to happen in the story  remains unchanged. But, how the various characters react to it and the repercussions are often totally surprising, even to me.     

Besides Amazon, are there any other sites where your books are for sale?
They're also available on IBooks, Barnes&Noble, and Kobo among others. Actually, I'd prefer you buy the ebook on IBooks if you have the option. If you really want physical books, it's on lulu.com for a higher price.

What kinds of marketing [twitter, facebook, blog, forums] are you involved with for promoting your book(s)?
I'm using Twitter and mostly Facebook. I also have a blog, where I share interesting facts about the real historical events or myths that I set the action in Keepers of the Stone against. As well as new insights that I gain into my own books through my travels. Honestly, before I started writing,  I'd never been that active on social media for anything other than keeping in touch with friends. So, that was one of the bigger learning curves of the process.   

Do you find it difficult to juggle your time between marketing your current book and writing your next book?
That would an absolute yes . Between blogging for my own site, writing guest posts, organizing giveaways etc... Most of the time I would like to reserve for writing gets taken up with promotional activities.  I often enjoy writing during the evenings. But, after a full day of dealing with things related to book promotion, it's almost as if I need a break from my own universe, in order to come at it with a fresh mind. I'm currently on summer holidays I hope to block out some time later on in my vacation to finish up the third book in Voyages of Fortune, the sequel trilogy to Keepers of the Stone.   



Keepers of the Stone. Book One: The Outcasts

In a far corner of the British Empire, a mysterious girl gallops away on a horse, fleeing for her life.  Malka has sacrificed everything to protect an all-powerful stone from falling into the hands of the malevolent Urumi. The last in a Sect of thieves, the girl is a trained killer. But will her lethal skills be enough to defeat the Shadow Warriors and their superhuman abilities? 

The fate of the stone may depend on Stas, a courageous youth born into exile from a country that is not on any map. Nell, his friend since childhood, has been caught up in the Dark Order's evil designs. The young outcasts must confront demons, real and imagined, with the help of mystical new allies. Their journey will take them to distant lands and change their lives forever.

Keepers of the Stone. Book Two: Exile

Stranded on the American frontier, Malka must stop at nothing to safeguard the all-powerful stone. She has come under the protection of a snarky felinoid – a shape-shifting girl who traces her lineage back to the court of Vlad Dracula. They must rescue with Henry, the American orphan whose thirst for knowledge could help decipher the clues to the next
leg of their journey – if the Urumi don’t kill them first.

Alone in yet another strange land, Stas mourns the unthinkable loss of his friend, Nell.  Cryptic messages offer new hope. But the Dark Order has devised another strategy to outwit the band of misfits. Plans are betrayed and alliances are formed as history points to the final objective of their quest.

Keepers of the Stone Book Three: Homecoming

Stas and his companions have made their way to the partitioned homeland he has never visited. He dares to hope that Nell may be alive. The doomed princess Bozhena vows revenge on the Shadow Warriors, who have enlisted Malka’s most bitter enemy in their latest plot to control the powerful stone.

With the help of a streetwise gypsy girl, the unlikely travelers must outwit the Urumi and deliver the stone to its final destination. All they have to do is put aside the differences that threaten to tear them apart. The secrets of the past hold the key to the history of the future.

Interview with Leigh Lavalle, BREATHLESS

Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?
BREATHLESS is a fun contemporary romance and the first book in the Yoga in the City series. BREATHLESS features a quirky yoga teacher heroine, Hannah, who does not fit into the yoga world, and a sexy hero, Jake, who injured his knee in Afghanistan. While Hannah helps Jake heal his knee, sparks flare, and she comes dangerously close to breaking open his heart.

Did you try the traditional route to publishing, i.e. querying agents/publishers?
I did! In 2011 I was a finalist in the RWA Golden Heart contest. I found an agent and sold a book to a publisher. It was a great experience, but indie publishing was new and exciting and put me in charge, so I didn’t stay with my publisher for long.

What factors influenced your decision to self-publish your book(s)?
The main factors for me are being in charge of my books and my timeline. I have 3 kids age 3-10, so deadlines are somewhat fluid. I also like to have control over my cover art, my promotions, and my books.

What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
I like to listen to music as I think about scenes. I definitely use songs to inspire me and help me feel the emotions I want to convey. Lately I’ve been listening to Lord Huron a lot- they write the most dreamy, romantic songs. 

But I need silence when I write. If I’m in a deep writing phase or editing phase, I can’t work anywhere but my home or the library. Even a coffee shop is too loud for me.

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
I always try to plan my books, but the plot changes as I write them. At the beginning of each book I swear THIS will be the one I write correct the first time. Whenever I change a plot, I toss thousands and thousands of words and lose so much time. Alas, I’ve not succeeded in planning the perfect draft yet. I have to find it while I’m in the words and in the characters.  
I plot by creating an outline and putting it into Scrivener. Scrivener is an awesome writing program that integrates ‘note cards’, cork boards, templates, and actual text.  
Did you hire an editor to review your manuscript before publishing?
I do. I work with a content editor as well as a line editor and a proof reader.

What advice would you give a new author just entering into the self-publishing arena?
The most important thing, for me, was finding a community of other writers. We support each other, educate each other, and give each other feedback on our stories. I found RWA early in my career and it’s been invaluable. They offer great writing classes and the conferences are packed full of information about publishing, both traditional and indie. More than once my writing friends have held my hand and kept me moving forward when I was tired or disheartened. 
Besides writing, do you have any other passions?
I love to do yoga, which makes sense as I’m writing a series about yoga. I also love to get out into the mountains. Living in Montana, that’s pretty easy to do. I love to hike, ski, camp, and explore new places.

Some fun facts about you, which do you prefer – dogs or cats? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or Tea? Talk or Text? Day or Night?
Man, I am such a libra. All my answers are: Dogs but I like cats. Coffee but sometimes tea. Talk and Text. Day for day stuff and night for night stuff. The only thing I can answer clearly is CHOCOLATE.

What’s next for you?
I’m currently working on RECKLESS, book 2 in the Yoga in the City series. This is a fun road trip/ wedding date romance that features my most new-agey heroine, Crystal, and my most controlled hero, Ford. It’s been a lot of fun to write.

After moving cross-country yet again, Hannah Roberts wants to put down roots in Colorado. She’s sunk her life savings into a share of Bloom Yoga Studio, but the studio is losing money, and fast. The building is undergoing a messy, noisy renovation–and the hot carpenter in charge is distracting her yoga students in more ways than one. If Hannah can’t talk the hard-bodied builder out of his power tools, she might as well kiss her dreams goodbye.
When Jake Marshall returned from Afghanistan, he brought back an injured knee and a lot of bad memories. He just wants to finish this renovation, rehab his knee, and head for Alaska to leave it all behind. A sexy yoga teacher doesn’t fit into his plans. But when Hannah offers him private sessions in exchange for quiet hours—he’s all in.  He doesn’t expect that while she’s healing his knee, Hannah will poke at all his hidden wounds…and come dangerously close to breaking open his heart.

Author bio:
Leigh LaValle is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary and historical romance. She lives in Montana with her family. When she is not chasing kids, bemoaning the laundry, or carving out time to do yoga, she is sneaking away to write. She would rather read than sleep, and cannot imagine a better job than writing romance. She is also a certified yoga teacher, but is not nearly as flexible as she once was.

#Review: THE OFFER by Sara Portman

  4 of 5 stars
Bex Brentwood has foolishly speculated on numerous business ventures that have failed and he finds himself with no income, no home and a bleak future. All of that doesn't stop him from trying to better his situation. When he meets Lucy Betancourt, he's intrigued with the practical vicar's daughter. Lucy has no dowry and no prospects of getting married so she plans her future as a governess to relieve the burden on her aging parents. Fate, however, has other plans for these two and a sweet love story emerges.

I was so excited to ready Lucy's story. She was introduced in the previous novel and she's such a unique character--kind, loving, but, oh so practical. Her childhood friend, Emma, the Duchess of Worley, asks her to join her in London where Lucy meets the duke's cousin, Bex. I was happy to see that Bex wasn't trying to get out of his financial situation by wooing a wealthy widow. His character was good and honorable and I loved watching Lucy and Bex's unfolding story. The dialogue was witty and believable between these two as they got to know each other. There are a few twists in the story that kept me turning the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Fans of Regency romance will be delighted to read this story.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Interview with Alexandrea Weis, DAMNED

Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?
Damned is book 1 in The Magnus Blackwell Series. It is the journey of a ghost and his road to redemption after living a less than honorable life. Magnus Blackwell haunts his abandoned mansion, Altmover manor. One day the house is bought by an architect and his fiancé, Lexie Arden. A woman with an ability to see the dead, she and Magnus begin a strange relationship that takes them across the country from Maine to New Orleans. They unravel secrets, and become part of the voodoo culture in New Orleans, ultimately uncovering a new destiny for both of them.

Do you have a favorite character?
I adore Magnus Blackwell. He is aristocratic, elegant, diabolical, and in the end, a compelling character who is as much fun to write as he is to read.

Have you ever had a minor character evolve into a major one? Did that change the direction of the novel at all?
Yes, I have had several characters begin as a line in a book and grow into a novel. I like to intertwine characters throughout novels I the same way people pop up in different avenues of life. I believe it keeps characters interesting and real.   

Did you try the traditional route to publishing, i.e. querying agents/publishers?
In the beginning, yes, and I soon turned to Indie publishing. After so many Indie books, I found an agent and a publisher. Experience has become something agents and publishers appreciate in Indie authors. I find more and more they are turning to the Indie market to find new talent. 

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
I go where my muse takes me. I find it so much more entertaining than sticking to an outline. I consider it more channeling than writing. Somebody has to be putting those thoughts in my head.

What have you’ve learned during your self-publishing journey?
Too much to put into a few sentences, but suffice it to say I have learned every aspect of what it takes to put a book out there. From the writing and editing process to publishing, to marketing. It is a never-ending cycle, and there is always more to discover.

Do you find it difficult to juggle your time between marketing your current book and writing your next book?
This is difficult because as a writer I just want to write. There are authors who are better at marketing and spend a great deal of time with promotion. But as you write more books and get bigger, you need help. It gets to be too much, and PA’s are a godsend at times.

What advice would you give a new author just entering into the self-publishing arena?
Don’t write what everyone else is writing. Don’t; copy trends, don’t go after the big sales. Just write. In the end, people stay with a writer whose words and stories they love. Those are the readers who will put you on their one-click list and follow your stories no matter what you write. You can’t write a story your heart isn’t in. It shows in your words. Follow your heart, and you will succeed. And don’t go into this thinking you will make money, you won’t. We do this because we love to write. 

Besides writing, do you have any other passions?
Animals. I am a wildlife rehabber and work with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries rehabilitating orphaned and injured wildlife. I often sit and write with a baby squirrel, raccoon, or rabbit in my lap When I am not writing, I am up to my elbows in fur.

What’s next for you?
I will be jumping into editing my next release, The Chimera Effect. A new fantasy/thriller series. The first book will be out spring of 2018. It is a fast-paced journey into the development of Keenan Blythe’s extraordinary abilities set off by a strange abnormality in his DNA. He must hunt for the murderer of his wife and kidnapper of his young daughter while coming to terms with the changes awakening within him.
