Now more from the book! 

A Princess is Always Right
by Stephanie Burkhart

Sophia may be the youngest Windsor, but she knows her mind. A Princess of York, she's committed to do her duty – prevent Jonas Byron from finding Nikola Tesla and decimating the time line.

Jax Ruston is a rugged metalsmith with curly hair and dimples to die for. A resident of 1855, he's pledged to help Sophia find Jonas. Together, they journey across continental Europe in pursuit of Jonas.

Despite her duty, Sophia's attracted to handsome Jax. However, he's committed to living in 1855. Can Sophia keep her focus on her mission, or will desire interfere with her task? Only one thing is certain: a princess is always right.


And now for an excerpt:

She wrinkled her brow. What did she want? To go home and train horses and pray the press leave her alone? To support charities? Sure, the task was noble, but not...fulfilling. Would she be dispatched through Great Britain as a goodwill ambassador? Did she want to seek higher schooling like Richard had? Was there a balance to be found between her personal life and her royal obligations? Richard and Alice seemed to find that balance, but Sophia felt almost rudderless in this moment. Did she want to remain a princess or enjoy the anonymity that Edmund possessed?

She ran a hand over her hair. She'd never felt so directionless before. Why was that? Because she wanted Jax in her life? They had discussed visiting each other using the time machine before Augustus' uncle passed away, but Sophia believed travel wouldn't be approved just for dating.

"You're a Windsor. Duty first. Love second. That's what I did and the nation benefited because of it." Liz's voice filled with pride.

"I had no idea it was such a thought provoking question." He kept his voice light in an effort to put her at ease.

She placed her hands in her lap. "Surprisingly, it is."

"How so?"

"I have some very serious decisions to make regarding my future." She drew in a breath. "And the direction I want to take it in."

He chuckled. "Remember -- a princess is always right."

She sighed, realizing she could only think of one major problem at a time and her future would have to wait. "I have to be right when it comes to Jonas. I have to catch him."

Book Blast ~ Husband Hunters by Genevieve Gannon

It's time for a book blast and this time the book is Husband Hunters by Genevieve Gannon. Check it out! You can win prizes just for commenting. What's up for grabs?   Genevieve will be awarding an eCopy of Husband Hunters to 3 randomly drawn winners via rafflecopter during the tour. Want more chances to win? Follow the tour! You can follow the tour here:

Husband Hunters
by Genevieve Gannon

Clementine, a psychologist specialising in couples counselling, is reeling from the discovery that her boyfriend is married. Annabel, an ex-model, only seems to attract men who want her as a trophy. Daniela, a civil engineer, is stuck in the friendzone.

Abandoning the romantic notions of true love that haven't worked out for them, the three decide to use their considerable professional skills to find a partner. this isn't about hearts and flowers; it's about being practical.

Warm and witty, Husband Hunters is about what happens when you try to engineer love. For fans of Zoe Foster, Lauren Weisberger and Mhairi Macfarlane.


And now for an Excerpt: 

Annabel counted four sets of silicone breasts at her table of twelve. All were sprayed an unconvincing brick colour. They were matched with equally fake dye jobs in Swedish blonde, beach blonde, honey and platinum. She could practically recite the colour numbers: 101, 102, 107 … During her modelling years she had been them all. From ash to ebony, and everything in between. The uniform look of the women at her table was finished with Botox lips and a shellacking of gloss. They were talking about teeth-capping or teeth-whitening or something. Annabel sighed and stole the pear tart her neighbour had deserted, thinking, ‘What am I doing here?’

She used to love weddings. It was like being part of someone’s own personal fairy-tale. Boy meets girl. Boy finds the courage to send girl text message. Boy and girl have extravagant wedding and live happily ever after in Willoughby. And then there are the outfits: elegant Aurelio Costarella cocktail dresses, sweeping Jayson Brunsdon gowns, conceptual Ellery garments. Corsets so tight they make your eyes water. Shoes finer than Cinderella’s, purchased by women hoping for a happy ending of their own.

But this wedding represented something completely different.

‘I heard the dress cost $24,000,’ said one of the women.


‘Yes! The lacework was all done by hand.’

Annabel swivelled in her chair to get another look at the bride. Mirabella had swapped the veil she had worn at the church for a tiara, and was holding court with an older gentleman in a military jacket and the man who reads the six o’clock news. Her crimson lips were the same colour as her hair. She caught Annabel’s eye, then looked quickly away. Mirabella Burbage-Jones didn’t like Annabel, and Annabel didn’t like Mirabella Burbage-Jones. But she had introduced the bride and groom, which apparently was worth a free plate of salmon.

‘You know who could use some lipo,’ said one of the half-silicone perma-babes on Annabel’s table. She nodded in the direction of the groom.

Humphrey Harrison McRae was affectionately known as Humpty because of his resemblance to the nursery-rhyme egg. He had a very big heart, but his generosity was prone to exploitation. Mirabella was the latest in a long line of millionaire-wannabes he picked up at places like Marble Bar and The Ivy, where they stuck to him like lint.

‘My Humpty is so clever,’ Mirabella would purr at every public opportunity, as she played with the ropes of pearls around her neck. Annabel was trying to believe that Mirabella truly cared for him. Humpty deserved love, which is why it infuriated her to hear the buzzards on the ruby table being so cruel behind his back.

‘He is lucky to have her,’ they said, picking all of the interesting bits off their food and eating the calorie-light bases.

‘She knows what she’s doing. She’s set for life now.’

‘She’s much better off now than when she was with that teacher.’

‘Did you see the difference in him since she’s been in the picture? The new haircut, the cologne … Let’s hope he doesn’t blow it.’

‘Ssh! Ssh!’ They hit each other with acrylic fingernails as he approached.

Humpty settled himself next to Annabel, beaming. Mirabella was swanning around the dance floor in her Chantilly lace, her champagne glass proffered in a sustained toast to herself, shouting things like ‘Daah-ling, have you met the Devlins?’ and ‘Oh, you must come to our summer house when it gets warmer — there’s plenty of room.’

He watched for a moment, the pride plain on his face, before turning to Annabel.

‘Annabel, the most beautiful woman in the room … ah, I m-mean the second most beautiful, of course.’

‘Well done, Humpty.’ She leaned over and gave him a kiss. ‘I hope you’re very happy together.’

He gave a satisfied sigh, then shuffled around to face her with a furrowed brow. ‘What about you? You look a bit forlorn. How’s your love life?’

‘Oh, you know me.’ She looked over his shoulder at the room full of men.

‘Don’t worry.’ Humpty pressed her knee gently. ‘He’s not here.’

She smiled weakly. ‘Thank you. You used to be such good friends—’

One of the perma-babes interrupted their conversation.

‘I haven’t seen you in any of the magazines for a while, Annabel,’ Veronica Bowers said. ‘Not modelling any more? It’s hard when your looks go, isn’t it?’ She screwed up her face like a squirrel that had bitten into something sour.

‘I’m in PR now, actually,’ Annabel said. ‘I run my own business.’

‘Aw,’ Veronica made a sympathetic noise. ‘Is that why you haven’t had time to find a husband?’

Annabel gave her an acid smile, then put a forkful of pear tart into her mouth to stop herself from saying something she’d regret.

‘Annabel’s business is her one true love,’ Humpty said, coming to the rescue.

Sweet Success was regarded as a rising star in the public relations world.

‘I work an eighty-hour week and it’s still less trouble than a man,’ Annabel said.

‘Well,’ said Veronica, standing, ‘look at you.’

Humpty leaned towards Annabel and lowered his voice. ‘Speaking of trouble, any word from—’

‘No.’ She reached for her wine glass. ‘I haven’t heard a peep out of Hunter since Christmas.’

Super Book Blast ~ The House and Homecoming Cove by Ginny Baird

It's a book blast and I'm featuring The House and Homecoming Cove by Ginny Baird. You'll want to comment and follow the tour. Why? Ginny will be awarding a $15 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. How cool is that? Want to follow the tour? You can do that here:

The House at Homecoming Cove
by Ginny Baird

Seeking out solitude in which to work, New York City music composer Melissa Carter rents a
century-old farmhouse on the Virginia Eastern Shore. There, she meets a loner with rugged good looks and smoldering gray eyes, who has long-term ties to the property. When strange things start occurring at the historic home, the handsome groundskeeper comes to her aid, but is Melissa really safer in his arms?

When Stone Thomas meets a pretty northerner with a musical gift, he's immediately drawn to her. He's also determined to protect her from the increasingly odd happenings at the fifty-acre farm where he's employed. Soon, Stone finds himself wondering whether he and beautiful Melissa might share a future. Yet the secrets of Homecoming Cove threaten to drive them apart.


And now for an excerpt:

 Her words came out in a whisper. “Thank you for everything. For coming to my rescue, for…” She was saying goodbye, yet her chin tilted toward his and she took a step closer, her lips barely parted, inviting. She peered up at him and met his gaze with a look that was surprisingly heated, decidedly predatory. There was no mistaking it. Melissa wanted him too. That was all the encouragement Stone needed to take her in his arms and bring his mouth down on hers with a hungry desire that surpassed all expectations.
Melissa gasped with delight and sighed into his kiss. Stone’s empty mug slid from her grasp and landed somewhere on the sofa. Stone pressed his eager body to hers and ran his hands up her back, threading his fingers through her hair. She was glorious, beautiful, her gaze sparking with reciprocal passion. Stone groaned and kissed her again, savoring the taste of her, delighting in the sweetness of her body molded to his, as his blood pumped harder and his heart beat like a kettledrum gone out of control. It was more than a kiss; it was like coming home.
“Stone,” she said breathlessly. He opened his eyes to find his cheeks nestled between her palms.
She looked up at him her face flushed with longing. “I think you’d better go.”
“Yeah,” he said, his pulse pounding. “I’d better go.”
Thunder boomed and rain slapped the windowpanes, while the fire hissed and moaned.
Neither one moved.
“Melissa,” Stone whispered, brushing his lips over hers. “You and me… It’s like… I don’t know.”
“I know,” she replied, meeting his kiss. “I feel it too.”

“You can call me Sir.” Something Brave Cover Reveal!!!

Victoria Blisse’s newest BDSM novella is available for Pre-order at Totally Bound now. It’s the story of a shy vanilla woman and how she meets the only man she’s ever wanted to submit to. Felicity discovers her kinky side with the help of a Man she only knows as ‘Sir.’

Blushing, hesitant Felicity does something incredibly brave and submits to a man she only knows as Sir, but will his demands push her beyond her limits?

Felicity attends the local burlesque fair just to sell her Quietly Cute jewelry. A handsome stranger offers to spank her, and she surprises herself by submitting. Sir makes her choose the implement he will use to take her spanking virginity—and uses it to great effect.
She finds herself becoming the sexy, self-made billionaire’s sub, who is punished with bondage, forced into exhibitionism, hot wax and other delicious tortures. Felicity submits willingly, becoming braver with every interaction. But when Samuel offers her the means to establish her business and pulls her out of the poverty she lives in, she snaps, seeing it as an insult to her pride and possibly even a payment for her sexual services.
Can Samuel convince her otherwise, or will she walk out of his life forever? 
General Release Date: 17th November 2015

And now a little snippet!! 
“Oh, I think of you all the time, Felicity. When I’m meant to be concentrating on the figures, one…” She felt an explosion of heat just above her belly button a second after he paused, and she gasped and pulled her stomach in.
“Two.” Another drop landed a little higher, between her ribs, and she felt the two hot impact spots melting together into a river of warmth.
“Well, you get the idea.”
She heard the mirth in his voice. He was enjoying watching her squirm. Another drop of wax splashed between her breasts. The impact burned, and she writhed against her bonds. It wasn’t nice, it wasn’t pleasant, but the warmth and the condensing pull of the cooling wax was strangely sensual. She wanted more as much as she wanted it to stop.
“I think of you over breakfast, whenever I see a pretty item of jewelery, when I look out of my office window, when I touch my desk. I see you there, stretched out and eager for your spanking. I think about you when I pick up my briefcase, when I loosen my tie. All the time, Felicity. You’re always on my mind.”
She heard a rasp, sensed movement beside her. Had he put the candle down?
“I get overwhelmed by thoughts of you all the time.”
Another dribble landed at the top of her left breast and the drop turned into a stream that burned a trail down to just before her nipple. She clenched her teeth, expecting the burning to explode on her sensitive nub, but it didn’t. She relaxed.
“Another confession, Felicity. When I think of you, I get turned on.”

You can Pre-order Something Brave from Totally Bound now, Early download will be available on the 20th October exclusively at my publisher’s site and general release is the 17th November.

Check out the rest of the tour here:
Comment on more of the stops in order to increase your chances of winning. 

by Tina DeSalvo

Her life could have been over with her breast cancer diagnosis, but Elli had fought and won. Now she
is ready to fight for other women facing the same nightmare, but to do so she is going to need money. And she is going to need it fast.

Fortunately, Elli finds herself with half ownership of a Louisiana plantation. A twisted inheritance has set her up with an interesting future. Unfortunately, Elli no longer believes in planning a future, she just wants to take the money and run.

Ben Bienvenu wants nothing to do with the woman from California who is certain to turn his world upside down. But the conditions of the will that left the property to both of them doesn’t give him much choice. Not if he wants to keep the property that’s been in his family for generations.

A snobby diva rental dog, an impossible will, a nosy Bienvenu family, a distracting Mardi Gras season and a man who thinks he is protecting his son by standing his ground against her… Elli knows that trying to find common ground with this man known as the Cajun Dog Whisperer is going to be an uphill battle. 

Two broken people.

Both in need of a Second Chance….


And now for an Excerpt:

“Tell her. Real dogs should have drool dripping from their mouths and hunters walking alongside them.”

“Mais yeah, Ben,” another man shouted in a heavy Cajun accent. “Tell her, a real dawg should fetch a beer from da fridge while da ball game is on. Dat way nobody has to get off da recliner.”

Elli’s head snapped around to the man they were addressing. She noticed that he had a sexy little scar bisecting his lopsided grin. Ben. Ben Bienvenu? Her partner? Donna’s hero. Alligator eliminator.

“A real dog,” another man in neon shouted as he swayed a bit drunkenly. “A real dog should be able to protect your woman and lick his…”

“Whoa, I think she’s got the picture,” Ben said interrupting the rowdy group, all of whom, Elli now realized, were well on their way to having hangovers. The only man seemingly sober was her new partner.

She whirled around to face him, Donna still projecting out from her arms. “So, you are Ben Bienvenu.”

He bowed at the waist and waved the dripping pirate hat he’d just retrieved from the bayou. “At your service.”

“Mr. Bienvenu.” Elli tucked Donna into the crook of her arm, wiped her free hand on her skirt, and extended it to Ben. “I’m Elli Morenelli, I own the Sugar Mill Plantation with you.”


About the Author:

Throughout her life, Tina DeSalvo has filled many roles – daughter, sister, student, wife, mother,
journalist. Then one day she took on one she had not planned – breast cancer patient. In an instant her life changed. But as she had done everything else in her life, Tina threw herself into overcoming this role and becoming a survivor.

It was during this time of fighting and healing that Elli was born. Tina took all that she learned, many of the people she met during the battle and poured it all into a book full of heart and humor. Elli is the story of getting a second chance at life after breast cancer. It’s not a book about cancer, it’s about a woman who’s had it. It’s a story that will make you laugh and could even bring tears to your eyes and it’s right from Tina’s heart. So much so that she is donating all proceeds from the sale of Elli to help meet the unmet needs of other women who are going through the same fight she did.

Since Elli, Tina has continued her Second Chance series with Jewell. We hope that you will check out Jewell as well and keep an eye out for Abby coming later in 2016.

Now, as we enter October and another Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tina is reaching out to share her story and share Elli’s story again. There will be Facebook events ( and news of other contests and appearances on her website ( ). And all month long she will be visiting blogs to share her heart and her message. She’s looking to give away Care Packages to ten Centers that work with Breast Cancer patients.  You can nominate a Center or Charity that has worked with you or a friend or family member as they went through treatment for Breast Cancer. From all nominated, ten will be randomly picked and Tina will give away a basket full of goodies in the name of you or your friend or family member. Let’s spread the love in October to those that might need it the most.

Rachel’s Guard
by Jillian Jacobs

“I killed you.”

With his grandmother’s words, pro-football player Warren “Bronco” Murray’s picture-perfect world takes a direct hit. After mistaking him for a man from her past, Bronco believes his grandmother’s confused confession reveals the man who raised him isn’t his real father. Is his grandmother’s mind slipping? Or is she harboring a deadly secret?

Searching for an answer to a question he’s not even sure exists, Bronco hires Rachel Harris, a local private investigator and a woman who brings out his protective—and primal—instincts.

Rachel’s spent her life seeking her own resolution for a tragic mistake made years ago. Unwilling to suffer through another loss, she vows to keep her relationship with Bronco strictly professional. Yet with each step into Bronco’s past, she finds that the players shaping her life also shaped his.

Working together to uncover the facts, they falter when the game turns deadly. Nothing is as it seems and they must fight to unearth the truth buried under past deceptions and lies.

Bronco and Rachel survive personal attacks and shocking revelations only to discover that the answers they sought have created a new path…but will they endure the journey together or falter under the truth?


An excerpt for your reading pleasure:

He’d known. Known making love to her would take him to a place he’d never been before. Because not only was his cock happy, his heart was happy. Content. As if he’d found the one place he could find, not only comfort, but also strength. An odd combination, but something a man like him needed. Craved. All that found in this one moment with this tiny woman who had no idea she’d dented his heart. 

After a few minutes, hours, who the hell knew, Rachel started humming the chorus to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing.”

“Keep it up, Harris.” Bronco pinched her ass. “Go to sleep or I’ll have you believing again and again.”

But Rachel being Rachel kept pushing. “Just a small town investigator, loving on a big green couch, she took the midnight mammoth goin’ anywhere.”

Shaking his head at her personalized rendition to such a classic song, he tickled her sides. “What kind of lyrics are those? Midnight mammoth?”

She jabbed his chest and continued. “Just a cocky boy, born and raised in north Ohio—” Tears of laughter poured down Rachel’s beard-scraped cheeks, and just like that he had to kiss her again, and then, once more, until he’d worked himself up enough to show her how to really believe. Again.

Book Blast ~ Shatter by Courtney Houston

It's time for a book blast and this time the book is Shatter by Courtney Houston. Check it out! You can win prizes just for commenting. What's up for grabs? Courtney will be awarding a $5 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Want more chances to win? Follow the tour! You can follow the tour here:

by Courtney Houston


I am going to do something that has never been done before. 

My name is Telor Conway, and I am going to destroy Death. Bring her to her knees in front of me.

I don’t know how and I don’t know when.

The only thing I know for certain, is that nothing will come between me and my soul mate ever again.

I’ve been given a second chance at life, a life with Catalina. I’ve been given something worth fighting for.

I will fight for it, for her… for us. Even if it is the last thing I do.

I have thrown the gauntlet.

On your marks.

Get set.



Now for an Excerpt:

I recognized the house immediately. It wasn’t a place I let my mind wonder to often, it held to many bad memories to think about.  Lost my entirely family in this house. My father and brother to a drunk driving and my mother to a bitter, broken heart. All she had left was me, the daughter who looked like her father and reminded her so much of her other child.

I stood frozen in the walk way between the dining room and the living room. It looked so untouched, so abandoned. My mother was no where to be seen.

“I took her out of the dreamscape.” An achingly familiar voice said from behind me.

I turned to face Oliver. He had the same charming smile on that he always did.

“Can you read my mind?” I asked, he answered my exact thought with me saying anything.

“I don’t need to.” He came to stand next to me, staring out the large picture window in the dining room. Our backyard looked just as deserted as the rest of the house. Nothing moved, not even the wind. No bird or squirrels. The life outside our house was just as dead as the inside. “It’s written all over your face.”

“Are you real?” I asked him. “Is this just a dream.”

“It can be both, Kit-Kat.” He said. “I am as real as I can be right now. And this is dream.”

It's a book blast and there are prizes to be won! Check it out! Flicker by Courtney Houston. What can you win? Courtney will be awarding a $5 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour, and a $15 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn host.

by Courtney Houston

My name is Catalina Franklin. And I should be dead. 

When Death called my number, sending one of her Guides to take my soul, she didn't count on one thing. The Guide she sent - He was made for me, and I for him. Pulling me back from the arms of Death, Telor changed my fate - and his. Now we're left with the question of not only how he's still here, but why. Will we get the answers we need? Or will Death find us first? Only time will tell...but ours is quickly running out.


Here's an excerpt for your reading pleasure ~

Telor slipped his hand in his shirt pocket and pulled out the ring. “Here, keep this with you at all times.” I shoved it back at him. “No, you keep it.”

“Dammit, Cariad, please, take it,” he said, stopping and pulling me to a stop with him. “Humor me and let me give you the only protection I have to give you.”

“What about you? Why would I take the only protection YOU have for YOURSELF,” I asked. He was insane if he thought I was taking that ring.

“There’s no me after you, Catalina,” he yelled. This was the only time I’ve ever heard him raise his voice. “YOU are my purpose, and I will gladly tear this world apart looking for something that doesn’t exist if it will keep you safe and us together, but for now all I have is this. Please take it, and don’t fight me on it.”

“Do you really have so little faith in us?” I asked as tears threatened to leak from my eyes. He didn’t meet my eyes, and I almost thought he wouldn’t. When he finally did look at me, I wished he hadn’t. All I saw was pain.

“I have all the faith in the world in you,” he said. He didn’t say it, but I was able to read between the lines; he didn’t think that HE could do this.

“I have faith in you,” I said, trying to make him believe in himself the way I did.

“And for that, I am truly sorry,” he said with true regret
