Half-fae Lenox Pendry is surrounded by secrets and none are his to keep. Plucked from his mother’s arms as an infant and raised a changeling, Lenox grows to adulthood unaware of what and who he is and oblivious to the danger unfolding as his birthday draws near. After he’s unwittingly sent to the Scottish Lowlands out of harm’s way, he chances to meet a beautiful healer named Janet Roxburgh. The townspeople believe her to be a witch. It would appear Janet has a few secrets of her own.

How fun. Thanks Rose. Here are my three things:

1. Marie Higgins writes more than just a romance story. Expect the unexpected...

2. Secrets and Lies by Marie Higgins. Love for the man of her dreams wasn't the only thing she was trying to hide.

On secret assignment from President Grant, Nicole Bastian is tasked with investigating a string of train robberies in which government money was stolen. The stakes are high and she is utterly devastated when she uncovers information that indicates the man of her dreams, Ashton Lee, one of the wealthy owners of Conrail is the number one suspect. Desperate to remain cool and impartial, Nicole strives to keep her suspicions quiet until she learns what Ashton is keeping from her. At the same time, she’s determined to keep her own secrets from Ashton, hoping he never finds out.

3. Readers who enjoy historical romance with suspense and a twist of humor will love this story. Readers who love gasp-worthy twists and on-the-edge of your seat intrigue, will fall in love with Marie Higgins' stories.

Good morning! My author tagline is "Laugh. Cry. Love. Feel the romance."

Here's the blurb from CHILL OUT which released on Jan. 4, 2016:

Renata Cabral needs to hide for the weekend. Her cousin’s Valentine’s Day wedding means she’ll face embarrassing questions from her large, extended family. Questions like “Why aren’t you married yet?” Since the breakup of her last relationship, she’s not ready to answer that question. She invents a work-related excuse and escapes to a friend’s lakeside cottage.

Noah Brownlee has been hiding for two years. But now he’s ready to come home and mend his broken relationship with his brother. When a friend offers the use of his lakeside cottage, Noah arrives in the middle of a blizzard with his English Mastiff, only to find the place is already occupied. With her big brown eyes and quirky sense of humor, Renata stirs feelings he thought long dead.

As the blizzard rages, the candy hearts predict love. Can Valentine’s Day work its magic between them?

I think readers of contemporary romantic comedy would enjoy CHILL OUT.

Mona Karel...Discover the Enchantment in Romance
Blurb from Question of Honor
"Can a woman with a past find love with a man who thinks he has no future?"
Sydney Castleton has worked hard to put her less than savory past behind her…until her sister asks for her help. Devin Starke has fought too many battles, seen too many deaths, to look forward to a peaceful future…until his best friend and partner asks him to help return the horse his wife, Sidney’s sister, took when she left.

Stormhaven, a ranch in northern New Mexico, has become a place for fighting men to readjust to the world, a sort of decompression chamber for those who have seen too much. Devin Starke is such a man. And Sydney isn’t far behind him.

When the sparks ignite between them, Devin and Sydney fight the attraction, as neither one is good at relationships. But when Sydney is attacked and fighting for her life, Devin realizes things aren’t quite what they seem. Can these two overcome the issues from their past, or are they doomed to lose any chance for love in the future?

I think readers who appreciate a heroine who is tough on the outside and soft inside, along with a hero who needs to learn how to love, will enjoy Devin and Sydney. I prefer to show growing intimacy, both physical and mental, over quick insta love sex.

A Long Trail Rolling
Lizzi Tremayne
My name and author tagline:
Title and Blurb:

Growing up in the 1860’s Old West, Aleksandra was trained in the Cossack arts by her father. Now she's alone, running to prevent her pa's killer from discovering their family secret. Disguised as a Pony Express rider in Utah Territory, she finds herself in even deeper trouble when she rides full speed into the middle of the Indian Paiute Wars. Her alluring Californio boss Xavier has a strength to match her own, but against ever-increasing odds, can they overcome their differences soon enough to evade both the Indians on the warpath and the man who's already killed Aleksandra's father—and set his sights on her?

Who would like to read this story?
A saga of the Old West with a multicultural cast of those who make up America, it would interest readers who enjoy Westerns, horses, American Indians, immigrants, and the Pony Express.

Thanks for Reading!

Looking for erotic tales of lovers in danger?

The Warriors of Sir Guy by Saloni Quinby

In 1205, a faithful knight was excommunicated for using his powers as a warrior witch to battle evil. Joining forces with other witches, he started a fellowship and for ten years led his brothers into battle against demons.

Then he was captured, tortured and killed by the demoness, Cassia. His companions, calling themselves The Warriors of Sir Guy, hunted and destroyed her, but her offspring by Sir Guy fled. For eight hundred years The Warriors of Sir Guy have tracked the half-demon, vowing not to rest until the creature is destroyed.

Born with the powers of a warrior witch, Robin was sent as a boy to train with the fellowship. Now a man, he is on the verge of fulfilling his coven's quest for justice by slaying the half-demon child of their founder. No one realizes that the offspring is his father's son. Only Robin sees the good in him. When he warns Robin that demons have infiltrated the Warriors of Sir Guy, the lovers are thrust into a battle that might destroy them.

Readers looking for a romantic twist on the Yeti legend should read this story.
