Horn Sworn Series Book Tour: Giveaway for a $20 Amazon Gift Card

Dark Unicorn
Horn Sworn Book 1
by Taylor Haiden & Angela Kulig
Genre: Epic Fantasy

Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Victoria Aveyard, Dark Unicorn is the first of the new and mysterious adult fantasy series Horn Sworn. 

Princess Wrenyve knows her oath to return her Kingdom’s missing artifact, the Heart of Spellshallow, means one of the King’s children will die. Even if Wren is cunning, fast, and strong enough, there’s a good chance it will still be her. 

Without the Heart, magic will flee the land faster than the night flees the day. Without the Heart, Spellshallow, and everything in it will cease to exist. As her brother’s shameful thievery is uncovered, Wren must swallow her pride and accept help from allies whom she knows she can’t trust: 

- Thackery is the ambitious son of the richest and most powerful councilman -- her very ex, scorned lover -- and the wounds Wren caused him are still raw. 

- Calen isn’t a boy at all. Trapped in human form after a hideous defeat, Calen may have lost his horn, but is still a unicorn -- a self-serving, treacherous scoundrel, as dangerous to any man who crosses him as he is to the innocence of every fair maiden. 

Luckily for Wren, she was already doomed. 

To find the Heart and restore the magic, to retrieve the lost horn, Wren and her unfortunate travel companions must survive three separate realms -- each more deadly than the last. Unknown enemies and strange magic hinder their way, and yet the most perilous thing is what lies within their own hearts.




Cruel King
Horn Sworn Book 2

The Collector has all the magic, holds all the cards, leaving the Cruel King with nothing but blood on his hands. 

For Wren, her only hope of saving her people now hinges on the one person she can never trust.

Calen has regained his horn and all the old debts have been called in. This time there's more than just his horn on the line. 

They escape the Collector's clutches by fleeing to the beautiful Realm of Unicorns. But will they find a welcomed homecoming or an inescapable prison? 

Can Wren and Calen kill two kings without destroying themselves and their tenuous love? Or will the lies and deceit be too much to overcome?

The Fixer Upper Book Blitz: Giveaway for a $25 Amazon Gift Card


The Fixer Upper
Echo Springs, Book 1
by Maggie Mae Gallagher
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Abby Callier is more in love with Shakespearean heroes than any real man, and she’s beginning to wonder if there is life for her outside the pages of a book. It doesn’t help that her esteemed parents tend to view her as they would one of their science experiments gone wrong. On the eve of finishing her dissertation, she escapes her staid existence to live in the house she inherited from her Great Aunt Evie in the small town of Echo Springs, Colorado. Because, let’s face it, when a woman starts comparing her life to horror films, it might be time for a break. 

Sheriff Nate Barnes believes in law and order and carefully building the life you want. In his spare time, he has been remodeling his house in the hope that one day it will be filled with the family he makes. But Nate doesn’t like drama or complications and tends to avoid them at all costs. And yet, when Miss Abigail Callier, his newest neighbor, beans him with a nine iron, he can’t help but wonder if she might just be the complication he’s been searching for all along. It doesn’t hurt that he’s discovered a journal hidden away by the previous tenant, and decides to use Old Man Turner’s advice to romance Abby into his life. 

Abby never expected her next-door neighbor, the newly dubbed Sheriff Stud Muffin, to be just the distraction her world needed. The problem is she doesn’t know whether she should make Echo Springs her home, or if this town is just a stopover point in her life’s trajectory. And she doesn’t want to tell Nate that she might not be sticking around -- even though she should, because it’s the right thing to do, the honest thing -- because then all the scintillatingly hot kisses with the Sheriff will come to an abrupt halt. Did she mention that he’s a really great kisser?

Married to the Lord Book Blitz: Giveaway for a $30 Amazon Gift Card


Married to the Lord
by Samantha Holt
(The Wallflower Brides, #2)
Publication date: September 9th 2019
Genres: Adult, Historical, Romance
Waiting for one’s fiancé to set a date is never fun. Especially when it has now officially been years. Particularly when one is a veritable wallflower with little chance of anything better coming along. More so when said fiancé’s brother is paying particular attention to one’s life and causing all sorts of confusing emotions.

All Miss Augusta Snow wants is for Evan to return home and set the date. If that means trying as hard as she can to break out of her quiet temperament to gain his attention, then she’ll do her best.

But it seems she’s attracted the wrong brother’s attention…

The brooding Miles Stanton, Viscount Ashwick has always been quietly fascinating to her. She knows he was a little less than a gentleman in his past but she cannot help be intrigued now that he is showing interest in her wellbeing.

He only intended to protect his brother’s interests…

Miles always had a soft spot for Gus. However, everyone knew she was meant for his brother and all he wants is for her to be happy -- especially with the specters of his past hanging over him and guaranteeing to bring trouble. He has to protect Augusta from doing something silly and somehow persuade Evan to cease being a fool and return home.

All the while ignoring his feelings for her…

Augusta’s plans to show Evan that she is not just some dull wallflower seemed doomed to fail and now Miles is back in her life and behaving…well…strangely. She cannot help but wonder if she has been hanging her hopes on the wrong brother this whole time.

EXCERPT:

They strolled in silence for a while. A gentle breeze brushed the ribbons of her bonnet, sending them curling around her face. She swept them aside with a little annoyed grunt and Miles tucked his hands behind his back to resist the temptation of sorting them out for her. When they came to where the path branched off and too far away from the party for their time together to be proper, Miles stopped. Augusta looked at him expectantly with dark eyes that made him wonder if she could see inside his soul—see quite how dirty and black it was. Though, she should have figured that out by now. There were few good men who would kiss their brother’s fiancé.

“I must apologize for that night…”

She blinked at him. “What night?”

The words hurt, jabbing straight into his heart like a pointed spear. Surely she remembered?

He cleared his throat. “The night where I…uh…kissed you.”

“Oh.”

Her lips formed a lovely ‘o’ shape that made him want to take her face in his hands again and kiss her until he had her knees trembling and her body capitulated to him. Damn it. He shouldn’t have walked this far or taken this long to gather his courage. It would be far too easy to slip off somewhere without anyone noticing. He could dirty her skirts and muss her hair to his heart’s content.

God, he really was a cad.

“Anyway, I wanted you to know that I regret that action. Deeply. You…you are my brother’s fiancé.” His throat tightened over those last words. “Even if you were not, to kiss you like that, in public…it was utterly unacceptable.”

“I see.”

“You do not forgive me?” He shook his head and smiled. “Of course you do not. And I have no right to expect it.” He eyed her. “Gus, how is it you can make a man feel even more heartily ashamed of himself with but two words?”

“I do not mean to make you feel ashamed, I swear it.” She plucked a leaf from a nearby tree and twined it between her fingers, keeping her gaze lowered.

“I think perhaps you take a little pleasure in it.”

She lifted her head. “You tease me!” She flung aside the leaf. “You know I would never take pleasure in such a thing.”

“Perhaps.” He gave a half-smile. “But at least then I get a response from you.”

The Daddy Coach Release Blitz: Giveaway for a $20 Amazon Gift Card!

Today, we have the release blitz for Karen Muir’s THE DADDY COACH! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

>
Title: The Daddy Coach
Author: Karen Muir

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Daddy Coach:


Hoping to vindicate her brother, botanist Gina Dunn poses as a nanny to the man she believes framed him. Even though she grew up in a dysfunctional home, how hard can it be looking after twin four-year-old boys? If she can nurture rare orchids, surely she can handle this.

Instant fatherhood hits contractor Will Sinclair hard when his twin sons he didn't know existed come to live with him. The rebellious boys reject Will as their real dad, forcing him to turn to Gina, his new nanny, for her "expert" help.

Interacting with Will and his boys as a “daddy” coach, Gina starts to crave the family she's always longed to have. But Will's reaction when he learns of her deception isn’t her biggest fear––one of two men she loves is lying…

Exclusive Excerpt:


On the family room couch, Ian and Harry flopped down on either side of Gina and snuggled close. She put her arms around them and read Where the Wild Things Are. The boys grew quiet. Good sign. They were drowsy.

When she finished a second story, their eyes were closed. Finally. I've worn them out.

She'd give them a minute to sink into deep sleep, then resume what might be her last search of the house. Leaning her head back on the couch, she closed her eyes. She would start with Will's black filing cabinet. In her mind's eye she saw herself opening the top drawer.

A swarm of butterflies flew out, and Harry and Ian leaped to catch them, squealing and knocking over several block towers. The center drawer of the desk began spewing black smoke. She grabbed a potholder to wrench it open with one hand, while picking up the jangling phone with the other. Will's velvet voice purred in her ear. "How's it going?"

"Just great!"

The boys became burning bundles in her arms, and she grew uncomfortably warm. She lifted her head and opened her eyes to check Harry. Sleeping soundly, he looked innocent and sweet, not at all the bratty beast who'd confronted her yesterday with his water gun. She ran her fingers through his hair and across his damp brow. She turned to do the same to Ian, then sensing movement, glanced up to see Will approaching slowly.

Caught in the cross-hairs of his gaze, she froze. He stopped in front of her and slowly loosened his tie. A surge of attraction stirred low in her belly. Why did she find this man so compelling? Framing Kyle meant he had the morals of a snake.

"Sorry to wake you." His midnight soft voice held a hint of laughter.

"No problem." Damn. He was here, and her chance to search the rest of his house was gone.

The twins stirred at her sides and awoke.

"Hi, guys," Will said. "How was your day?"

Harry rubbed his eyes. "Ian broke the window."

"Gina broke the washing machine," Ian countered.

“We had ants for lunch.”

Stunned, Gina looked from one boy to the other. The debrief continued.

"Gina said a bad word."

"Two times," Ian confirmed.

At the shock in Will's eyes, she groaned. She was toast.

He knelt to examine the stack at her feet. "I see you got some books.

"Yeah, we went to the library," Ian said."

Harry was not done ratting her out. "We made cookies and got flour all over the floor."

Ian frowned. "They were black."

"We had a water fight."

"Gina wore your pajamas." Hands over their mouths, the boys snickered.

Will stood, his brows raised. Her cheeks burning, Gina studied the carpet. "Sounds like you had a busy day," he said.

"Yeah," Harry agreed. "It was cool."

Gina smiled. It had been cool, but she was going to be fired for a dozen reasons. Time for a quick exit. She scooted off the couch and turned to the boys. "Thanks for letting me spend the day with you guys."

She shook their limp hands. "Goodbye, Harry. Goodbye, Ian."

Disappointed frowns replaced their smiles, and guilt gnawed her. She had earned the boys' trust and now she was leaving.

“I’ll see you out,” Will said.

“No need.” But he and the boys trailed her to the door, as she kicked herself for botching her one-day trial. Maybe it was for the best. Ian and Harry were troubled boys who needed a real caregiver with lots of kid skills, not a clueless pseudo-nanny who was out to nail their dad.

She reached the front door and turned to give the boys a parting wave.

13 Steps to the Cellar Release Day Blitz: Giveaway for a $5 Amazon Gift Card or eBook



Mystery
Date Published: September 4, 2019
Publisher: Tirgearr Publishing

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Thirteen Steps to the Cellar. They were steep; they were narrow—but was a fall down them enough to have caused the twenty-seven deep lacerations to her aunt’s head? 

Callie Harris travels from her home in Alabama to her aunt’s former mansion in Maine to unravel the haunting forty-year-old mystery of Dr. Laverne Harris Doss’ brutal death.

Why wasn’t a murder weapon found? Was her uncle justly convicted of the killing? Was his mistress involved? Or was the murderer the bearded stranger rumored to have arrived by train that night?

In the charming town of Richmond, located on the banks of Maine’s historic Kennebec River, Callie uncovers the community’s darkest secrets—a botched police investigation, a betrayed widow’s lie, a dead woman’s blackmail, and a wealthy philanthropist’s shame. The web of intrigue extends far beyond her suspicions and its connection to her personal story pierces Callie to her core.
