Coming July 15th from USA Today bestselling author Karey White

The Husband Maker by Karey White
The Husband Maker

Charlotte’s a girl with nicknames. She may not love being called Charles or Chuck, but the hardest nickname to take is the one she was given in college, the one that’s followed her now for too many years. They call her “the husband maker” and sadly, it fits. Every guy she’s dated since high school has become his next girlfriend’s husband. Not hers. Not three girlfriends down the road. The next.

Is she doing something wrong or is she just cursed?

When Kyle Aldsworth enters the picture and sweeps her off her feet, Charlotte begins to hope that maybe she's not destined to be single forever. A senator’s son with political aspirations of his own, Kyle's wealthy, handsome, and in need of a wife. Will Charlotte be disappointed yet again, or will she finally be able to make a husband for herself?

Of Breakable Things Blog Tour: A Fascinating Guest Post from Author A. Lynden Rolland!

Publication date: April 8, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: A. Lynden Rolland

A captivating debut about the fragility of life, love, and perspective.

Alex Ash was born broken. Living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is like living on Death Row, but she is willing to fight for her frail life as long as it includes the boy next door. Chase has always held the pieces of her together, but when he dies tragically, Alex’s unfavorable fate becomes a blessing in disguise.

Faced with a choice, she finds herself in a peculiar world where rooms can absorb emotions and secrets are buried six feet under. Among limitless minds, envious spirits, and soulless banshees, Alex hardly rests in peace

Guest Post from Author A. Lynden Rolland

Note from Susan: For the guest post, I told the author that I was curious to know more about Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and why she chose to have her main character have this disease. I thought perhaps there might be a real-life connection…

Thank you so much for allowing me to visit today!

Oddly, there is no real-life connection. Just complete curiosity and the desire for something unique.

In Of Breakable Things, most of my characters are dead. It wasn't my intention for this to happen, but as the story unfolded in my mind, the main character was ill and would die young, and that is when her story really began. Her hindrances made her who she was, and there were no miracles to save her. She is flawed and na├»ve and sheltered. This makes her all the more skeptical and curious when she enters a world manipulated by the mind, a world where bones and breaks no longer matter. But she can’t quite tell her mind to follow such elastic rules. I needed her to have a difficult time letting go of her limitations. I needed her to be literally breakable.

When I saw the term, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), during my research process, it struck a chord. It almost felt like passing a stranger on the street and knowing I had seen her somewhere before. As a kid, my friends and I would go to the town playground, and sometimes there was a little girl who only went on the swings. She never did anything else. She said she wasn’t allowed. She had these gigantic eyes and tiny frame and thick hair. She was otherworldly. I honestly can’t remember specifically what she told me she had, but I’m pretty positive it was Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. If it wasn’t, it doesn’t matter because she is the picture I see in my head when I see Alex.

What is Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome? I had no clue until I started researching hereditary disorders (heredity plays a pivotal role in the story). EDS is a tissue disorder, and there are different types. It can be as mild as bruising easily or having elastic skin. I needed Alex to have a more severe case, so she has vascular EDS.

It's difficult to describe in layman's terms, so I requested approval from the powers that be, and (rubbing hands together) here is a small excerpt from Of Breakable Things. The scene is written from the perspective of Alex's best friend, Chase, as an eight-year-old:

Chase couldn’t fathom the idea that his best friend was sick. Alex had too much energy. When he stood next to her, he could feel it like the static electricity he learned about in science class. So then how could she somehow have less life than he did?

He knew it was called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and he’d heard Alex’s doctor say things like type four and vascular and dangerous. He knew Alex’s mother had been sick with it, too. And her mother was dead.

“They don’t look any different to me,” Chase whispered to his mother. That morning they had driven into the city so Alex could attend some sort of meeting. There was a huge banner outside the Baltimore Convention Center that read Learning Conference: Living with EDS. Jonas had snorted and told Alex she was going to a freak show. Chase had punched him in the belly, and to his shock and amazement, his mother turned her head and didn’t scold him. And now, sitting outside the convention center, the people walking inside didn’t look strange at all.

“There are different kinds of EDS,” Danya explained to him, ruffling his hair. “Some are worse than others.”

“Worse than Alex’s?”

Danya shifted on the bench. “No. Alex has the worst kind.”

“She doesn’t look sick.”

“That’s because most of it is inside her body.” She pointed to his arm. “You have tissues in there. Don’t scrunch your face like that! They aren’t the same kind that you blow your nose with. Your tissues hold your body together. Alex’s tissues don’t work quite as well as yours.”

No kidding. One time he’d pulled on her arm to get her attention and her shoulder fell out of its socket. He’d cried the entire way to the hospital because he’d hurt her.

“In our tissues, we have something called collagen. And if collagen is like the glue of body, the normal person has liquid cement while Alex has cheap Elmer’s glue.”

“Is that why Jonas says that Alex was assembled at Kmart?”

His mother rolled her eyes. “Probably, but Jonas really shouldn’t say that. I’ll speak to him.”

Chase fiddled with the Velcro on the pocket of his shorts. “I still don’t get it.”


“Why is it such a big a deal?”

“Tissues support your skin, which is why Alex bruises easily. And they hold your bones together, which is why hers are more likely to break.”

“But broken bones don’t kill you,” he argued. “Why did her mom die?”

His mother’s face crumbled, and he felt that pang in his chest that told him he’d said something wrong. “I’m sorry.”

“No, don’t be sorry. I just miss her.” Between her hands, she rolled a pamphlet she’d picked up that morning at the convention. “Tissues also support your organs. Like your heart. That’s an organ. The things inside you keep you alive, and if they aren’t supported properly, you could bleed inside your body. That’s what happened to Alex’s mommy when Alex was born. They couldn’t stop the bleeding.”

“Is that why her dad hates her?”

“He doesn’t hate her.”

Chase looked at his mom doubtfully, but quickly shifted his attention to several people exiting the convention center. His heart fluttered in hope, but his friend wasn’t among them. He couldn’t believe his mother had made him stay out here instead of letting him go in with Alex. This was all Miss Petra’s fault. Their teacher was the one to suggest that Alex’s friendship with the Lasalles might be detrimental to her health. She was always trying to put them in separate groups during class or encouraging Alex to hang out with the other girls during recess. Thankfully, Alex ignored the suggestions. But within the past few months, Alex had broken three different bones during their adventures with his brothers. So her dumb doctor recommended she meet other kids who were “limited” too.

A selfish part of Chase wanted Alex to come screaming out of that door. Usually they joked about her illness. They would look at the bruises on her arms and laugh about what they saw … like lying in the grass and finding images in the clouds, only these clouds were stormy. She was going to be sick no matter what, so what good would it do to sit around and talk about it? Alex didn’t like to think she was different, so he was sure she wouldn’t enjoy this experience. Or at least that’s what he hoped. After all, he needed her as much as she needed him.

She just never understood that.

Bianca St. Germain works at a Night House, a place where vampires like the aristocratic Jeremiah Archer pay to feed on humans, and she doesn’t much care what others think of her. The money is good, and at least there, she’s safe. Bianca also doesn’t care that the Night House is killing her. All she cares about is nauth, the highly addictive poison in vampire bites that brings a euphoria like no drug ever could. 
But when Bianca meets James, a reclusive empath who feels everything she does, she considers a life outside of the Night House and a someone worth living for. But Jeremiah has decided to keep Bianca for himself; he won’t allow her to walk away. 
As she allows her feelings for James to grow, she struggles to contain nauth's strong hold on her life. If they are to have a future, James must make her see what she's worth, what she means to him, before Jeremiah and nauth claim her for good.

Tracie Peterson Celebrates 100 Books with an iPad Mini Giveaway & A SENSIBLE ARRANGEMENT Live Webcast Event!

About the book: A Lone Star Brides book.

Marty Dandridge Olson is ready to leave behind the pain of the past.

Answering an advertisement for a "Lone Star bride," she leaves her Texas ranch and heads to Denver to marry a man she doesn't know.

Jake Wythe is the man waiting for her.

Burned by love, he marries now simply to satisfy the board of Morgan Bank, which believes a man of his standing in society should be wed. Together Jake and Marty agree they are done with romance and love and will make this nothing more than a marriage of convenience.

When missing money and a collapsing economy threaten his job, Jake's yearning to return to ranching grows ever stronger, much to Marty's dismay. But a fondness has grown between them, as well, further complicating matters.

What will happen when their relationship shifts in unexpected ways ... and dreams and secrets collide?

Purchase a copy:

My review:
I've always been a softie for "arranged marriage" storylines, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review A Sensible Arrangement. The word "sensible" describes not only the characters' marriage, but also the characters themselves. Jake is doing the sensible thing by working at a bank job he deplores so he can save up his money to purchase a ranch, a lifelong dream. Marty does the sensible thing in trying to support herself through an arranged marriage, one of the few options open to an impoverished woman in 1892. After her husband is killed in a ranch accident, she doesn't wish to continue to be a burden to her sister and family, so she accepts a proposal of marriage from a man she's never met. It wouldn't be spoiling the plot to tell the reader that Jake and Marty begin to have romantic feelings for each other, but there's a big problem: Jake dreams of returning to Texas, while Marty has no desire to go back to ranching in Texas after her husband's death. I really enjoyed getting to know both of these characters. Marty is a pistol-packing lady who prevents a stage robbery as the story begins, and Jake is a man who's been bruised by a turbulent love life in the past. Both find healing together. I can't wait to read more about Marty and Jake's adventures in the next book in the Lone Star Brides series.

Gabriel Stone Book Tour: Giveaway for a $10 Amazon or B&N Gift Card, eBooks and Swag!

Publication date: April 15, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Shannon Duffy

Gabriel Stone is back from Valta, but the adventure is just beginning! His friend Tahlita is trapped in Willow Creek with no memory of Valta. Gabe, Piper, and Brent are determined to reunite Tahlita with her father. Yet even as they do, Prince Oliver arrives asking for their help. Menacing forces known as the Solarians have kidnapped the Empress and Princess and are threatening the lives of humans everywhere.

Even with cool new powers, Gabe discovers their strongest weapon is their friendship as they battle the Solarians and rescue a cursed white witch -- who may be the only one who can save Valta.

An Excerpt from Gabriel Stone and the Wrath of the Solarians:

Gabriel barely had a chance to notice Dane’s glistening eyes before one by one the streetlights on First Street popped, crackled, then exploded in a spray of light and shattering glass across the street.

When Gabriel turned around, he wasn’t prepared for what he saw next. It wasn’t just the electrical disaster that made his eyes grow wide.

A boy that looked about seventeen stood under the lone streetlight that hadn’t smashed. His arm was raised high into the air, his hand palm-up as if he was stopping the glass from crashing on top of him. Even though his face was turned away, he looked vaguely familiar and … out of place. His shaggy, long blond hair streamed down over a navy-blue, fitted vest and his white shirt. His free hand rested on the hilt of his sword and his pants were tucked into black boots. Gabriel gulped. He had a sword!

Piper gasped. Brent blinked, frozen in place.

“Is that—” Piper started, but clamped her jaw shut and stared at the boy.

A cold sweat broke out on Gabriel’s forehead as the realization of who it was suddenly hit him, but before he could move, Dane stepped forward.

“Prince Oliver,” Dane said. “To what do we owe this pleasure?”
