When former Olympic champion, Michael Adams—now Canada’s hottest reality TV star—insults his fake showbiz wife on social media, he jumps on the first flight to Australia to escape the ensuing scandal. Desperate to experience ordinary life again—if only for a few weeks—he becomes “Adam”; just another tourist exploring the dusty Outback trails in a beat up truck.

Tired of lies and liars, British Backpacker Evie Blake is taking a year out of her busy London life, looking for adventure to heal her broken heart. So when the hot Canadian she meets at the campground offers to drive her through Western Australia’s wild Kimberley region, she grabs the chance, unaware he has the world out looking for him. He’s just a down-on-his-luck traveler, right?
But when hot days turn into even hotter nights, how long does Adam have before Evie discovers who he really is?

Book Tour for The Flames of Time series by Erica Lucke Dean

I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the THE FLAMES OF TIME SERIES by Erica Lucke Dean Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!

 Excerpt from Shattered Souls

With my insides trembling hard enough to make my vision blur, I turned my back on Abercrombie, resisting the urge to nudge him in Hannah’s direction—the timeline had already taken enough hits for one day—and marched my way down the beach, toward Maddox. 

The tuning fork inside me quivered with every step I took in his direction. He stood there in the moonlight, a confident, almost arrogant, smile on his perfect lips. He didn’t move toward me, but I didn’t expect him to. Instead, he curled his finger, bending it toward him as if he had it tied to a rope around my waist, pulling me forward. Every bone in my body ached to be near him, the prickle at the base of my spine going off like a fire alarm, and yet the empty place in my chest told me this wasn’t real. My soul may have been confused, but my heart called out to Laith. 

Cautiously, I stepped up to Maddox. Despite everything I knew about him, everything that had happened before that moment, my fingers itched to touch the cool leather of his sleeve, to lean into him for comfort. But it wasn’t him I wanted comfort from, it was the other boy with his face. 

Maddox towered over me, staring down with fathomless eyes. The familiar swirls of green and gold against a field of honey brown held me captive while fear danced down my spine. I’d almost forgotten how tall he was. 

Say something. I tried to remember what I’d said the first time, but between the surf crashing against the shore and my pounding heart, my ears buzzed as if a swarm of bees had nested deep inside my brain. I couldn’t think. You’re supposed to kiss him. If you don’t kiss him, you’ll mess up the timeline. 

As if he’d read the fear in my eyes, his mouth curved into a knowing smirk. I shuddered as he brought his lips down to my ear. 

Hot breath fanned across my neck. “I don’t bite.”

I almost laughed at his bold-faced lie. I may have fallen for it the first time, but I wasn’t that girl anymore. “Would you even tell me if you did?”

His smirk spread into a full blown smile. “Probably not.” 

That time, I did laugh, and my reaction seemed to surprise him. 

He studied me for a few seconds, scrunching his eyebrows together and tilting his head to the side as if he couldn’t figure me out. Then he shook off whatever dark thoughts he’d had and placed his warm hand against my cheek, the same way he had the first time he’d kissed me. “I’ve waited a long time to do this.”

A jolt of electricity sparked where his skin came in contact with mine. Instinctively, I closed my eyes and leaned into his touch, a contented purr rolling up my throat. Every fiber in my being ached for him to kiss me. Hurry, before I change my mind.

 His fingers twitched against my cheek as he murmured my name, and my chest went impossibly still. I froze like a marble statue as the blood coursing through my veins hardened into ice cubes. He’s not Laith.

About Erica Lucke Dean:

After
walking away from her career as a business banker to pursue writing full-time,
Erica moved from the hustle and bustle of the big city to a small tourist town
in the North Georgia Mountains where she lives in a 90-year-old haunted
farmhouse with her workaholic husband, her 180lb lap dog, and at least one
ghost.

When she’s not busy writing or tending to her collection of crazy chickens,
diabolical ducks, and a quintet of piglets, hell bent on having her for dinner,
she’s either reading bad fan fiction or singing karaoke in the local pub. Much
like the characters in her books, Erica is a magnet for disaster, and has been
known to trip on air while walking across flat surfaces.

How she’s managed to survive this long is one of life’s great mysteries.

You can find out more about Erica, in addition to her humorous blog posts and
disasters, on her website.

Freebie Blitz for The Trueheart by Helene Opocensky



The Trueheart
Smoke and Mirrors Book 1
by Helene Opocensky
Genre: Middle Grade, YA Fantasy


How could Corbin possibly do what he was supposed to do?

After Corbin’s mother died, Maxim Moritz Grobian took him, penniless orphan that he was, under his wing and taught him the magic that was their heritage. Corbin owed Max everything, and now Max had given him a mission. Corbin was to bring Max’s estranged daughter to New York. Lorelei was the only one, Max insisted, that could use the Heartstone, a crystal of phenomenal power, to keep mages safe from the Inquisitors that hunted them and allow mages to finally take their rightful place in the world.
A worthy goal, thought Corbin initially, but now that he had actually met Lorelei all he really wanted to do was to run for the hills. Both afraid of hurting her and endangering himself, he needed to stay away from her, not befriend her to do Max’s bidding. Besides, his instructions were more than to just befriend her. He was supposed to make her fall in love with him.


There was no way, absolutely no way he was going to do that – not after what she had told him.

Book Tour and Giveaway for Adrenaline by B.L. Scott

Adrenaline
Laurel Glen Series Book 1
by B.L. Scott
Genre: Romantic Suspense
A successful woman wary of charming men. A man full of regret for a massive error in judgement. Their fiery relationship that almost wasn’t. A novel of international intrigue, last chances, and trust.
Lindsey Kelly loves two things—fast cars and her counter-terrorism business. She’s a self-made Beltway Bandit who rewards herself for her successes by racing her “baby,” a Ferrari F430 Spider, at Laurel Glen. When the car malfunctions during a practice lap, she meets a new track mechanic, Gavin Blake. Lindsey initially finds his looks compelling, but his judgmental and know-it-all attitude remind her of everything life with her ex-husband taught her to avoid.
For his part, Gavin isn’t interested in rich women who think they own the world. Or so he tells himself. In his previous life as a high-powered attorney, someone like Lindsey could have been his, but now, simplicity is what he craves. He hopes an uncomplicated life as an auto mechanic with little responsibility will help him avoid another colossal error in judgment.
The lives of these two self-avowed loners keep colliding, however, and a steamy on-again/off-again connection develops. They are eventually pulled into a vortex of danger when a terrorist organization attempts a takeover of Lindsey’s company. Working with the CIA, Lindsey becomes bait to draw out the leader of this radical group. Faced with personal jeopardy, Gavin and Lindsey discover a love and trust that is necessary for their very existence.
B. L. Scott is new to the literary scene. For the last thirty years she has been involved with a security training facility and weekend road racing venue located near Washington, DC. The company conducts counter-terrorist schools Monday through Friday and hosts sportscar and motorcycle racing on the weekends.
Her work with both racers and government clients like the CIA, SEALs, and FBI was exciting, and she hopes to express this excitement in her series based at a similar facility, fictionally christened Laurel Glen. Adrenaline is the first of this series.
Though she misses the exhilaration of facing the challenges of a multifaceted business, she’s delighted to have the time to follow her passion–writing stories that excite and touch the heart.
She lives in the Virginia countryside with her aged yellow lab, Abby.

Book Tour and Giveaway for So … You Want to Write a Book by Christian Warren Freed

So…You Want to Write a Book
by Christian Warren Freed
Genre: Nonfiction, Self-Help
WANT TO WRITE A BOOK BUT DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN?
The plot—sketchy maybe—is in your head. Now, how do you pull it together into a book?
Christian Freed to the rescue with So . . . You Want to Write a Book, taking you on a helpful and entertaining trip from honing your idea all the way through to making your publishing decisions.
This is not your typical “how-to-write” reference book. Rather, it helps you think through your situations, shares ways to improve your writing, and prepares you for the inevitable author frustrations.
No two ways about it—after writing more than 25 books himself, Freed knows a thing or two. An award-winning, best-selling author of military fantasy fiction, Freed uses humor, real learning curve experiences, and practical wisdom to guide would-be writers via four easy-to-digest units (and yes, the E word is “edit”):
— That Nagging Idea
— Where the Magic Happens
— The Dreaded E Word
— Wrapping It Up in a Neat Little Bow
Though primarily focused on the art of fiction writing, So . . . You Want to Write a Book will also benefit nonfiction writers; either way, it’s a “from-the-head-to-the-page” thing.
So, are you finally ready to write the book that’s in your head? Start by reading this book!
Christian W. Freed was born in Buffalo, N.Y. more years ago than he would like to remember. After spending more than 20 years in the active duty US Army he has turned his talents to writing. Since retiring, he has gone on to publish 17 military fantasy and science fiction novels, as well as his memoirs from his time in Iraq and Afghanistan. His first published book (Hammers in the Wind) has been the #1 free book on Kindle 4 times and he holds a fancy certificate from the L Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest.
Passionate about history, he combines his knowledge of the past with modern military tactics to create an engaging, quasi-realistic world for the readers. He graduated from Campbell University with a degree in history and is pursuing a Masters of Arts degree in Military History from Norwich University. He currently lives outside of Raleigh, N.C. and devotes his time to writing, his family, and their two Bernese Mountain Dogs. If you drive by you might just find him on the porch with a cigar in one hand and a pen in the other.

Two Kinds of Us
Love in Fenton County Book 5
by Sarah Sutton
Genre: YA Romance
DIAMONDS MEET ROCK ‘N ROLL AND SECRETS MEET THEIR END.
In a life of diamond bracelets and country clubs, I’m the perfect daughter. I get all the right grades, volunteer at all the right organizations, apply to all the right colleges.
And I hate every second of it. At the rate my life is playing out, under the strict rule of my parents, politicians and housewives will be my future.
Until I meet Harry.
Harry’s a singer in a rock band with a voice so beautiful that I actually feel hypnotized. Doesn’t hurt that he’s hot either, and with the kind, flirty personality to match, it’s the perfect trifecta. And even better, he sees the me I want to be. He sees me as the girl who can break free of the life she’s trapped in, who can control her own future.
The only problem? He knows me as Stella, my fun, carefree alter ego—so drastically different from Destelle, the girl who is trapped in the life her parents rule.
But as we get closer, I realize Harry’s keeping a secret of his own, something related to the dark past that he’s trying to move on from, and when I find out, everything we’ve built could come crashing down.
This is the fifth book in the Love in Fenton County Series, but can be read as a standalone. Check out this Opposites Attract + Hidden Identities Romance today!

Book Tour and Guest Post for Dandelion Dreams by Penny Harmon

Dandelion Dreams
Cove’s Port Series Book 1
by Penny Harmon
Genre: Women’s Fiction
A dream can change more than once in a lifetime!
Madelyn “Maddie” Jones loves Jimmy Choos, fancy restaurants, and the city life she worked so hard to create. With a promotion on the line, she can’t let anything get in her way. Not staying out late. Not partying. Not friends. And definitely not love!
But when a phone call sends her life spinning out of control, she has no choice to put everything on hold and move to Maine.
Dandelion Farm isn’t what she expected. With five dogs, a slew of farm animals, and Kyle, her aunt’s adopted son with special needs, Maddie has her work cut out for her.
Will Lincoln Davies, Kyle’s social worker, drive Maddie away? Or worse-convince her to stay?

GUEST POST

I just want to say thank you for having me to discuss my new release Dandelion Dreams.  

My new release is all about Maddie.  Madelyn Presley Jones is a typical city girl but she does have a past with the country.  When Maddie receives a call, it changes the course of her life.  Maddie has to decide whether her future is in the city or taking care of Kyle, her aunt’s adopted son with special needs.  It’s the most important decision she will ever make and Lincoln Davies, Kyle’s social worker, sets out to help. 

Tell Us Something Interesting About You

This is always a fun question. My partner, Dan, and I are raising three grandchildren.  We have two girls, ages 11 and 6, and a boy age 9.  Let’s just say that it makes life interesting for us!  This past year brought a lot of stress (remote learning was definitely not fun), but we have gotten through it and I am so motivated to write more books. 

How Do You Find The Time To Write?

For over three years, I did stop writing.  It was hard with so many demands from children.  However, this year, they have been going to school four days a week with one for remote learning.  I have found that writing sprints of even just 10 minutes a day add up.  I try to get as much done while they are in school, but I am not a morning person.  The best time creatively for me is late afternoon when they are home, so the short sprints are best for me. 

What Did You Enjoy Most About Writing This Book? 

I loved writing this book for many reasons.  I started it four years ago and, while the words may have stopped, the research did not.  In the book, Maddie makes her aunt’s dandelion jelly.  I actually made it myself.  I went out and picked all the dandelions right from my lawn, cleaned them, let them soak, and learned the canning process.  It was so much fun and I can tell you that dandelion jelly is really good! 

Penny Harmon began writing at an early age and developed a great love of words over the years. After her children were grown, she took her writing more seriously and has published in both newspapers and magazines. In January of 2016, her first novella, Complicated Inheritance, was published and in March of 2016, the first book, I Saw Him First, of the Rocky Isle Romance series was published. Five more books in the Rocky Isle Romance series have since been published.
In 2017, Penny branched out with her first women’s fiction novel, Dragonfly Wishes and, soon after, published Love’s Song with Sweet Promise Press. Love’s Song is not available at the moment, but will be re-released with a new title.
Her book Dandelion Dreams just released on June 3, 2021.
Penny lives in Maine with her long-time partner, Dan, three grandchildren, three cats, and one dog. She enjoys spending time with all nine of her grandchildren and enjoys working on DIY projects, especially those of repurposing.
