The Guardian Duke by Jamie Carie, Book Review



Blurb from the book:

The Guardian Duke is award-winning novelist Jamie Carie's most exciting story yet, a uniquely arranged Regency-era romantic adventure where hero and heroine know each other through written letters but have yet to meet.

Gabriel,the Duke of St. Easton, is ordered by the King to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are presumed dead after failing to return from a high profile treasure hunt. But Alexandria ignores this royal reassignment, believing her parents are still alive and duly following clues that may lead to their whereabouts. Gabriel, pressured by what are actually the King's ulterior motives, pursues her across windswept England and the rolling green hills of Ireland but is always one step behind.

When they do meet, the search for earthly treasure will pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of them.



My Review:


I was swept away into this regency novel about the Duke of St. Easton and his trials along with Alexandria Featherstone and her strong will and determination.  I loved the details the author provided, the novel was well written and I literally flew through the pages!  The mystery, the elusive answers, where would it all lead to?  Just when I thought I would get some answers, BAM!  The book is over!!!  WHAT?!?  Total cliff-hanger, I could not believe it!  I thought to myself, "It can't be over!!!!"  So beware this one is a series, but definitely one I will be reading the rest of!  Ms. Carie takes you on a wonderful journey through parts of the United Kingdom to meet characters that you will find endearing and landscapes that you will long to see with your own eyes!  A new fan, I am anxious to read the next book in the series!

Pull: A Seaside Novel, by Rachel Van Dyken



Blurb from the book:

Jaded rock star, Demetri Daniels, is in Hell — also known as Seaside, Oregon. Sent to rehab after nearly getting himself killed last year, his record company wants nothing more than for him to lay low, away from the limelight.

Irritated and more alone than he’s ever been in his life, Demetri tries desperately to rebuild his shattered reputation as a drug addict and player, which proves to be difficult when he meets Alyssa.

Alyssa is everything he should stay away from. She’s beautiful, smart, but above all else, she’s damaged. And one thing Demetri has learned is two broken hearts don’t equal a whole.
In the end, he has to decide if he can rise above the life he’s created in learning from his past mistakes, or fall into the darkness of his choices.


My Review:

I must confess that this is book two in The Seaside Series and I have not read book one.  However, I didn't feel like I couldn't understand what was going on nor did I feel lost.  If anything reading 'Pull' made me want to go back and read 'Tear' so I can be caught up!  I was literally 'pulled' into this story immediately!  It was so magnetic that I found that I couldn't put the book down!  'Pull' is full of powerful emotions:  anger, sadness, love, and hate.  It is a dynamic, edgy, and dramatic story!    A book you won't soon forget, Rachel Van Dyken has done an excellent job crafting this story!  I am now going to buy book one to catch up and then anxiously await the release of book three!

No sex, just sexual references, but there is cussing.  Discusses alcohol and drug addiction recovery.



Happy Reading!!!

Tear by Rachel Van Dyken, Book Review



Blurb from the book:

Life as a teenager is never easy. But for Natalee Murray, things have just gotten way more difficult. Bored with life, she can't wait to graduate high school and get out of town, especially considering the famous band members from AD2 suddenly start attending her school, making her once boring life, absolutely insane.

It starts with a pen. A single brush of fingers, and she is captivated.

But Alec and Demetri have a dark secret, one that could shatter their reputations and Natalee's heart. What do you do when one guy paints your life with color while the other infuses your soul with passion? How do you choose when your heart is divided?

*This is a New Adult/Mature YA. Minor swearing and drug usage.


My Review:

I actually read Pull, the second book in The Seaside series first.  It was so amazing that I had to go back and read the first book, Tear.  I was already acquainted with the characters since I read the second book first, but I didn't know the full story and Tear provided that for me.  I loved learning about Nat, Demetri and Alec.  Rachel Van Dyken did a wonderful job of slowly divulging the details of the brothers' past and keeping me interested in the story.  I really felt for Nat, who was 'torn' between two great guys who were so different.  If you are looking for a past-paced novel with romance, drama and more, then Tear is just what you are looking for!  Want even better news?  It is only $0.99!  That is amazing for a novel of this caliber!    Five stars!

Note:
Mild cussing, discusses drug/alcohol use and intimacy.


You can pick up Tear via Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

The CEO Gets Her Man by Anne Ashby, Book Review



Blurb from the book:

Ensuring her company's success is Debra Laurie's life. But when she goes undercover to investigate a failing hotel in southern New Zealand, she finds her confidence crumbling. Masquerading as a waitress is a disaster--especially when the hotel's assistant manager is a former rugby star she once had a crush on.

Jase McEwan is struggling to keep the hotel afloat. An unpredictable manager, ridiculous demands from the head office, and employee unrest are problems enough. Now a haughty new waitress is causing mayhem in the restaurant--and in his heart.

Determined to be impartial, Debra sets out to discover if Jase is responsible for the hotel's drastic situation. But the more she investigates, the more she likes his work--and the more their attraction sizzles. Before long, Jase has turned Debra's world upside-down. But what happens when he learns the new waitress is really his CEO?


My Review:

I loved Debra and Jake's characters!  They were amazingly well-developed and interesting.  I became so engrossed in this story that I could not wait to solve the whole mystery of what was going down at the Riversleigh hotel in Southland.  Yet when that problem was resolved, I felt like there were details that were lacking in its resolution.  Also, the last third of the story almost felt like a whole new 'book' to me; we had solved the crux of the first two-thirds of the book and then we were on to a new problem.   However, Ms. Ashby's writing is compelling and I truly enjoyed the book!

Book contains:
Cussing, sensual and descriptive intimate scenes.

The Beauty of the Beast by Alexandra Lanc, Book Review



Blurb from the short story:

Leroux has spent his life having everything handed to him – everything except the hand of the alluring Beauty, which he covets above all else. When Beauty is “kidnapped” by a Beast, Leroux sets out to reclaim what he feels is rightfully his from the frightful monster, but when the unexpected occurs, Leroux discovers that not all monsters take the form of a Beast. 

A fast-paced, reflective Fairy-Tale retelling in the tradition of the Grimm’s Tales, The Beauty of the Beast is a dark visit to the land of possibilities. 


My Review:

When I first started reading I was a bit confused on who was who, but once I backtracked  and figured it out, I literally flew through this short story (approx. 26 pages).  I know it is a short story, but I  felt like we didn't really get to know Beauty well enough.  However, it did seem fitting since this version is truly about Leroux, the Gaston of this re-telling.  I loved the author's take on him and her insight into his character and why he thought and acted the way that he did.  I was completely surprised by the ending which was nice, yet I was left wanting more of something.  A resolution, some magic, I am not sure, I simply felt like it was missing something.  That said, if you like fairy tale re-tellings and you don't have a lot of time to read, this will be the perfect fit for you!  

You can pick up The Beauty of the Beast via Amazon.

Poison Me by Cami Checketts Blog Tour Stop and Book Review


Poison Me by Cami Checketts
Jake Merrill was raised by his grandmother, Ruby, and her hilarious friends. After a suspicious death at the retirement home where Ruby lives, she enlists Jake and Chanel, the beautiful activities director, to help her find the killer.

But secrets Ruby has kept for decades threaten her family and the man she’s always loved but could never have. Chanel’s unstable ex-boyfriend, a presumably dead relative, and vicious criminals add to the confusion. Time is running out as Jake, Chanel, and Ruby desperately search for clues to solve the murders and fight to save those they love.

Praise for Poison Me

Poison Me made me laugh out loud and thoroughly enjoy myself. I wish I had a friend like Ruby! Snappy dialogue, romance, and a strong sense of family made this book well worth reading.

Rachel Ann Nunes, bestselling author of Line of Fire and Before I Say Goodbye


My Review:

Posion Me grabbed my attention from the beginning of the book!  The 'old' people in the book were hilarious and I couldn't get enough of their antics!  I felt like I was in the room watching every situation unfold!  When I thought I had the mystery solved, I realized that it wasn't going to be that easy and that  Cami Checketts had a few surprises in store!  I loved that the 'drama' and 'secrets' were completely realistic and not at all far-fetched.  Trying to figure out 'whodunnit' was much harder than the reader is led to believe.  Posion Me has everything I love in a book; romance, mystery and laughter too!  Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop and you won't either!  I keep thinking, why haven't I read any of her books before?  Five stars and she has gained a new fan!  Can't wait to read more!

Shadow Eyes by Dusty Crabtree Blog Tour Stop, Guest Post & Giveaway!




Shadow Eyes Synopsis
Iris Kohl lives in a world populated by murky shadows that surround, harass, and entice unsuspecting individuals toward evil.  But she is the only one who can see them.  She’s had this ability to see the shadows, as well as brilliantly glowing light figures, ever since an obscure, tragic incident on her fourteenth birthday three years earlier. 

Although she’s learned to cope, the view of her world begins to shift upon the arrival of three mysterious characters.  First, a handsome new teacher whose presence scares away shadows; second, a new friend with an awe-inspiring aura; and third, a mysterious and alluring new student whom Iris has a hard time resisting despite already having a boyfriend.

As the shadows invade and terrorize her own life and family, she must ultimately revisit the most horrific event of her life in order to learn her true identity and become the hero she was meant to be.




My Journey Becoming an Author
Shadow Eyes Blog Tour and Kindle Fire Giveaway

Thanks so much, Crystal, for hosting me on my tour!  I’m happy to be here!

(Everyone, don’t forget to enter the rafflecopter below for a chance to win a print copy of Shadow Eyes, your full name in the sequel, and a KINDLE FIRE!)

First, let me just say I’m not your typical writer with several books under her belt, whose day and night job is pounding away at a keyboard.  I’m an English teacher by day, and writer by whenever I get a chance to write.  Would I like to have more time to write?  Of course!  To illustrate my point, I recently had a bad dream that I was part of a major heist, got caught, and went to prison.  In the middle of feeling immensely guilty, wondering what I’d tell my husband, and thinking about how I’d lose my job, I also thought, “But I’ll have so much time to write!”  Therefore, you can see how my subconscious feels about my writing situation. 

Did I always want to be an author?  Not exactly.  I mean, sure, I attempted a story or two when I was a kid, but I don’t think I ever had any serious dreams about being a writer.  It wasn’t until a few years ago when my friend and I had been reading some angel books, namely Fallen and Hush Hush, that the idea even crossed my mind.  And it wasn’t even my idea.  My friend actually said to me (and I’m paraphrasing), “Dusty, you should write a book like the ones we’ve been reading.  You’re smart.  You’re an English teacher.” 

Such a simple statement.  Such a small seed.  But once planted, what powerful roots grew in my mind, taking hold of my creativity and weaving it in ways I never thought possible…mostly because I’d never tried.  Only a few days after she’d said that, I had a dream with extremely vivid imagery – a dark, powerful figure with flowing black robes fluttering about him staring across a chasm at another figure surrounded in brilliant, blinding light.  Once I woke up, I had to describe it on paper.  What I wrote eventually became the prologue of Shadow Eyes

It was like my friend’s idea had been planted, but it wasn’t until I wrote that prologue that the sprout became visible and I actually realized I could do something as crazy as write a book.  From there, my creativity took over and grew that little sprout so fast it was out of control.  By the time I was finished with the first draft and took a step back, I saw the crazy, wild tree that had grown and then began the process of trimming and pruning.  I learned a ton through that process – reading more books like mine, noticing their sentence structure and flow, reading about writing and editing, getting outside help, etc.  I’m still learning, but I do feel I’ve come a long way from the girl who never dreamt of becoming a writer.

As far as becoming a published author?  I could go on and on, but I’ll keep it short.  I sent several query letters, got several rejections, finally got accepted by Musa Publishing, who saw enough promise in my work to take a chance on me and has offered so much in return, and the rest is history.

The Boyfriend Bylaws by Susan Hatler, Book Review



Melanie Porter has been dumped—again. When others accuse her of “being in love with being in love,” she agrees to let her best friend, Patti, step in and direct her dating life with The Boyfriend Bylaws.

EXCERPT:

Rule #1: No giving out your phone number until approved to do so.

Rule #2: Must obtain permission to accept any date invitation.

Rule #3: No bringing up marriage, kids or the future.

Rule #4: No going to first base without authorization.

Amended Rule #4: No going to first base, or any other base, without authorization.

Rule #5: No scribbling your first name with some guy’s last name. Ever.

Rule #6: New rules may be added as Patti Hartley deems necessary.

Memorize it, live by it, and happy dating!

. . . .

“His name is Nick,” I said. “He seems like a total gentleman, not to mention he’s insanely gorgeous. Can I get permission to go on a date with him before he asks me out?”

Patti scoffed, stretched her leg out, and reached for her right foot. “No way.”

Why did she have to be so difficult? I was playing by her rules. “What’s the point of waiting until he asks me out, and then calling you? That’s just stupid.”

“Why should you wait? Let’s see. Brad. Paul. Mike. Marcus. And don’t think I didn’t see the wink your co-worker, Matt, gave you at lunch today.”

***

Included as a bonus, is the short story, My Last Blind Date!

Bonus: My Last Blind Date by Susan Hatler: Should Rachel play it safe and spend Valentine's Day at home or risk another dating disaster by letting her best friend set her up on a blind date?


My Review:

Susan Hatler has crafted a very cute novella that will be sure to put a smile on your face while you are reading it!  Melanie is terrible with love, she always chooses the wrong guys!  So her best friend and roommate Patti gets her to agree to date only by The Boyfriend Bylaws!  If Melanie breaks any of these 'laws' then she has to turn her car over to her!  A funny and cute story, The Boyfriend Bylaws is the perfect pick-me-up book!  Four and a half stars!

You can pick up The Boyfriend Bylaws via Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

Baked Alaska by Josi Kilpack, Blog Tour Book Review & Giveaway!





Baked Alaska by Josi S. Kilpack

An Alaskan cruise is the setting for amateur detective Sadie Hoffmillers latest adventure. Sadie plans to spend time relaxing with her two grown children, Breanna and Shawn, and her boyfriend, Pete, while enjoying the luxury and cuisine of an elegant cruise ship and helping to plan her daughters upcoming wedding. But even as the crew prepares to leave port, Sadie has suspicions about the voyage ahead and the relationship between her normally easygoing son and a mysterious female passenger he obviously knows but refuses to discuss. When the woman is discovered unconscious during the second night at sea, Sadies apprehension escalates. Over the last few years, Sadie has developed an extreme dislike for secrets and it would seem her son is keeping one from her. *Includes eight new mouthwatering recipes, tested and approved by the official bakers of Sadies Virtual Test Kitchen.


My Review:

I love the culinary mystery series by Josi Kilpack!  Baked Alaska certainly did not disappoint!  In fact, I found it quite refreshing!  It was a totally different spin on the series and when I thought I had everything figured out, something else would come along to surprise me!  I enjoyed that it took place on a cruise ship and involved Sadie's entire family.  It was nice to have them altogether in the novel.  I love Sadie, I can't ever seem to get enough of her spunky and energetic character!  She makes this novel come alive and I found myself smiling frequently from her antics!  If you enjoy a good mystery novel, then you will love Baked Alaska by Josi S. Kilpack!  Five stars for a brilliant addition to the series!  Keep them coming Ms. Kilpack!


You can pick up Baked Alaska  via AmazonBarnes and Noble or Deseret Book.

Ride the Rainbow Home by Susan Aylworth, Book Review



Blurb from the book:

Meg Taylor has never thought of Rainbow Rock, Arizona as home. The daughter of a serial-marrying mother, Meg has lived in many places—and most of them were kinder than this little town where she was the principal’s daughter. She returns after ten years only to help a dear high school friend.

Startled by the changes, Meg is pleased to see that her other high school buddy, Little Jimmy McAllister, isn’t little anymore. In fact, he is one of the most attractive men she has ever met. As she finds excuses to spend time with him, their friendship begins to blossom—but Meg has seen marriages come and go and she has no faith in happily ever after.

Can Meg let go of doubt, grab on to happiness and ride the rainbow home?



My Review:


Well, the title of the book did not draw me in and the cover certainly did not either.  However, once I began reading this story I was drawn straight into it and the town of Rainbow Rock.  Where in the world has this book been hiding?!?  It is well written and the vivid descriptions of the desert in Arizona made me want to plan a trip and go see it for myself!  This hidden jewel of a book is one that I am glad I took the time to read.  You will find yourself silently cheering for Meg and Jim to make it work and to let go of their fears!  The author's knack for detail without going overboard made for a wonderful reading experience!  Four stars and I look forward to reading the next in the series!



You can pick up Ride the Rainbow Home via Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
