New Tour Today!! Hurricane in Paradise by Deborah Brown - Paradise Series plus $25 Amazon / Paypal Giveaway

Set against the steamy backdrop of Tarpon Cove's sun-kissed, tropical waters, sexy sleuths and best friends Madison and Fab are at it again dealing with the occasional dead body. Hidden just below the surface of the small town lies an underworld, one steeped in deceit, corruption, and deadly secrets. It's only a matter of time before Madison and Fab find themselves on a collision course with the police, who consider them likely suspects in a murder.

Ride along on their adventures when the duo realizes that a family member is missing and pull themselves away from all jobs to track him down. Theories: walked away, freak accident, kidnapped? If so, then why no ransom demand?

Hurricane in Paradise is book ten in the thrilling and humorous provocative Paradise series, which finds the two waist-deep in mystery and romance. It is a smart, adventurous read that delivers heart-thumping, non-stop action. Join Madison and Fab as they solve the most twisted of cases, through unconventional ¬– and highly entertaining – measures… sometimes in flip-flops.

The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they're like chips...you won't be able to devour just one!”

NEW ROMANCE RELEASE Whisper of Love by Melissa Foster​ (Love in Bloom: The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor)

NEW ROMANCE RELEASE........
Whisper of Love by Melissa Foster​ (Love in Bloom: The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor)

 

Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

 

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

 

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

 

WHISPER ON LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

 

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

Book Spotlight - Around the World in 80 Tales by Dave Tomlinson

Around the World in 80 Tales: A fascinating short story collection of backpacking adventures and budget travel memoirs. - Dave Tomlinson
Around the World in 80 Tales by Dave Tomlinson 
 
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 TALES
80 Stories, 25 Countries, 5 Continents, One Heck of a Ride!
 
Travel is an amazing experience and I’ve spent years of my life living out of my backpack. I’ve explored well-beaten tourist trails and to far corners beyond them. Each journey is an adventure and each adventure gives with a story to tell. So one day I decided that yes, I would write 80 of my best Travel Stories.
 
After leaving me speechless, travel then turned me into a storyteller!
 
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 TALES is:
 
TRUTHFUL: Firstly and perhaps most importantly, when you read a travel story, you want it to be genuine. You don’t want to read some fictional account of something that never happened written by someone who’s never been there! All my stories are completely true and related exactly as they happened. Nothing in my book has been contrived or exaggerated.
 
CONCISE: Each of my stories have been intentionally edited to 500 words that all fit neatly onto one page. This has often meant making every word count! The result is that you can enjoy each adventure without having to read any unnecessary diction.
 
VIBRANT: While many travel books are only text, Around the World in 80 Tales is packed with colour photos. With the exception of only a few, they are all photos are my own photography or taken on my own camera. All the images have an explanatory caption with them.
 
INFORMATIVE: You want a travel story to be entertaining right? And it would be also nice if you could learn about different places too? Around the World in 80 Tales provides exactly that, page after page! Aside from relating my personal experiences, I’ve also included numerous relevant facts and historical information.
 
DIVERSE: My stories have been rearranged from the original order they were written in. This was done to create a fascinating journey through a diverse range of travel situations and activities. As the pages turn, you’ll be taken on adventures such as snorkelling in Malaysia to hiking in Nepal and camel riding in Morocco. Enjoy the ride!
 
BOOK SUMMARY
- An informative and friendly introduction
- 80 entertaining stories of real travel experiences
- World map images showing story locations
- Colour photos and captions relating to every story
- Acknowledgements of those who contributed to the book
 
A FINAL WORD
I’ve found that travel is a kaleidoscope of people, places, events, history, culture, food and fun. Through the pages of my book, I’ll bring it all to life for you. The stories are fascinating, inspiring, amusing and amazing. Some are even a little crazy but collectively they are an insight into the unique adventures of travelling the world on a budget.

About Faith in Every Footstep: A Sled Dog Adventure and Romance

On the eve of one of mankind’s toughest races, accompanied by thirteen of America’s rarest dog breed, rookie musher Kyle Walker only has one thought in mind: win. Discovered in the lowlands of South Carolina, the Carolina grays have traveled over five thousand miles to face off in the 2003 Yukon Quest. But one dog stands above the rest—King.

 

When an unexpected storm strikes, Kyle Walker and the reigning champion are forced to turn back. Stranded at the checkpoint, Kyle and his dogs find solace in a young veterinarian with auburn hair and keen green eyes—Jenna Maynor.

In this storm another race is forming, one of an Inuit man racing to save his family. Presented with the choice to help, but at the risk of his and his dogs’ lives, Kyle Walker ventures into the unknown in search of a mom and two young daughters.

The Yukon Quest was founded on the premise that a dog driver and his team should be a self-sufficient unit capable of challenging varied terrain and severe weather. But these conditions may prove to be too much, even for Kyle and King.

Author Interview & Book Spotlight - Birds of Passage, An Italian Immigrant Coming of Age Story, the debut novel of Joe Giordano

Birds of Passage - Joe Giordano
Author Interview & Book Spotlight - Birds of Passage, An Italian Immigrant Coming of Age Story, the debut novel of Joe Giordano
 
What turns the gentle mean and the mean brutal? The thirst for wealth? The demand for respect? Vying for a woman? Birds of Passage recalls the Italian immigration experience at the turn of the twentieth-century when New York’s streets were paved with violence and disappointment.
 
Leonardo Robustelli leaves Naples in 1905 to seek his fortune. Carlo Mazzi committed murder and escaped. Azzura Medina is an American of Italian parents. She’s ambitious but strictly controlled by her mother. Leonardo and Carlo vie for her affection.
 
Azzura, Leonardo, and Carlo confront con men, Tammany Hall politicians, the longshoreman’s union, Camorra clans, Black Hand extortion, and the Tombs prison.
 
"With Birds of Passage, Joe Giordano delivers a rollicking, wholly entertaining take on the Italian immigrant story. His rich cast of characters arrives seeking the usual: Money, honor, love, respect, a decent shot at the pursuit of happiness. But things get complicated fast as they plunge into the rough-and-tumble world of rackets, scams, and politics of early 20th-century New York City. Giordano serves up a thick, satisfying slice of the entire era in all its raw and brutal glory."
 
Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, a major motion picture directed by Ang Lee.
 
Joe Giordano’s stories have appeared in more than ninety magazines including The Saturday Evening Post, Shenandoah, and The Summerset Review. Harvard Square Editions published Birds of Passage October 2015.

Elkmont: The Smoky Mountain Massacre (The Cal Bocock Adventures) (Volume 2) by Joey Ledford
 
Five campers in a Great Smoky Mountains campground are hacked to death in their sleep. Troubled FBI Special Agent Cal Bocock is pounding double scotches when his office tracks him down in a bar with the terrible news from the national park. An intense investigation leads to an unlikely suspect, but Bocock isn't convinced he has solved the Smoky Mountain Massacre. He learns another mass slaying took place in a rustic hotel within walking distance of the campground 36 years earlier and the similarities between the two cases are haunting. With the help of his young sidekick, "Sassy" Smith, and a mystical Cherokee Indian park ranger, who serves as his guide, Bocock unearths an ancient evil that has possessed the scenic area for more than a century. A classic battle between good and evil ensues, and in Elkmont, evil attacks from within, summoning the hate and prejudice that lurks inside the soul.
