I Am Moore
All That & Moore Book 1
by Celeste Granger
Genre: African American Contemporary Romance
Emery Moore moved away from home after finishing her juris doctorate. She
was a successful corporate attorney and had been living in Washington
D. C. for the past five years. It wasn’t often that she returned
home to Atlanta, but the love of her family drew her back. Emery had
success in so many facets of her life, but she hadn’t been as lucky
in love. The word love was unsettling for Emery; it was loaded with
notions of submissiveness and sacrifice, the loss of self and being
dependent on another person. Notions Emery wasn’t sure she wanted.
Yet, there was someone Emery couldn’t shake her soul loose of and
she tussled with her heart and the sensible tug in her mind daily.
Evan Stanton Esq. had been an integral part of Emery
Moore’s life for the past six months. He like she, was an attorney.
During the day, the attorneys at law litigated from different sides
of the aisle; fighting with everything they had for their clients.
But for the past few months, business was left at the door, and the
fighting ended as Evan and Emery delved into uncharted territory.
Evan loved how Emery felt in his arms. The curve of her hips, the
arch in her back made it difficult to keep his hands off her. It
wasn’t always like this. Emery had to be pursued, and although Evan
was attracted to her unapologetic disposition in the courtroom, along
with her sophisticated air, Emery was a challenge; one that Evan
planned to take on full steam ahead.
This book can be read as
a standalone. It is interconnected to the All That & Moore series
Teach Me Moore
All That & Moore Book 2
One family. Eight sisters, tangled in romance. Kennedy Moore, the second
Moore sister, is the glue that holds the sisterhood together. While
Emery, the oldest sister, was away in Washington DC, it was Kennedy
that her younger sisters leaned on. A master chef in her own right,
Kennedy spends most of her time in the background, pouring her
passion into the culinary delicacies she creates for her clientele.
Being in the kitchen has left little time for Kennedy to find love,
outside of the love she has for culinary arts.
Bryce Monroe is the
owner and head chef of Taste, a world-renowned, four-star restaurant
in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Much like Kennedy, Bryce spends his
days and nights in the kitchen, masterfully creating delectable
dishes that keep his clientele coming back for more. Bryce is a
multimillionaire who has everything he’s always wanted except
someone special to share it with.
An unintentional brush with
Bryce Monroe reminds Kennedy that there is more to life than cooking
and taking care of her sisters. The two have so much in common, and
the chemistry they mutually felt shakes both their foundations. Bryce
is captivated by Kennedy and realizes she is what he’s been
missing. Yet, Kennedy shies away, unsure whether there’s room for
something more in the world she’s created for herself. Will Kennedy
let down her guard and allow love in? Will Bryce push past her
resistance and pursue the love of his life? Find out in Teach Me
Moore: Book 2 in the All That & Moore Series.

One family. Eight sisters, tangled in romance. Daphne Moore, third eldest
sister of the Moore girls has had tremendous success in her
professional life. As the Founder and Head Mistress of Moore Academy
for Girls, Daphne taught her girls to be smart, self-reliant and
confident. Yet, with all the success in her career, Daphne struggled
when it came to matters of the heart. Daphne spent three years of her
life loving a man who didn’t show the same kind of faithful,
unwavering love. The wounds Stephen left were deep, and Daphne wasn’t
sure she’d ever recover. Nicholas St. John, preeminent real estate
developer and multimillionaire, was much like Daphne, successful
professionally. However, unlike Daphne, there wasn’t an unfaithful
lover to taint Nicholas’ view on love, Nicholas simply never made
time for it. But an accidental encounter between the two would change
the trajectory of both their lives.
So Much Moore
All That & Moore Book 4
One family. Eight sisters, tangled in romance. Felicity Moore, an actuary
and entrepreneur, deals with facts and numbers as the foundation of
her business. Her hard work and nurturing dedication is what makes
her a leader in the industry. It’s the one thing that her world
revolves around on a daily basis, and because of it, there had been
no time for love or no place for a relationship in Felicity’s life.
It is the sole reason why when Garrett Thompson enters her
life, Felicity doesn’t take him seriously. Especially with him
being a trust fund baby. He’s never had to work to earn a living.
Although Garrett does dabble in philanthropic endeavors, he spends
much of his time living in the lap of luxury; doing the things he
wants to and nothing that he doesn’t have to. Garrett lives by
choice, and any relationship he’s had in the past has been an
accessory to his lifestyle not a primary focus. With Garrett living
life on his own terms, what if anything do they have in common?
Despite Felicity being dismissive of him, Garrett intends
to prove just how serious he can be.

Martimus
Feisty Lawyers Book 5
by Seelie Kay
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance
Agent Cate Creighton is in love. Unfortunately, as the Agency honeypot, she
is knee-deep in an assignment that tests the bounds of her new
relationship. It seems eight socialites have gone missing, all
wealthy twenty-somethings with influential parents. No one seems to
care until a former vice president’s daughter disappears.

When the vice-president shares a tale of false arrest, a broken promise of
deportation, an illegal diversion into a private prison, and an
alleged trip to an unwater habitat called Martimus, Cate and her
colleagues must find a way to follow the same path. In other words,
they must enter the right prison, meet the right fixer, wind up on
Martimus, and hopefully return in one piece. And it looks like Cate
is the perfect bait.
That doesn’t sit well with Cate’s lover, former U.S. Navy Seal Warren
Hazelton. He intends to protect her until death ‘til do they part.
Fortunately, another possibility appears, in the form of an MISix agent who has
interfered in one too many Agency operations. Tillie Henderson owes
them and they are all too willing to serve her up on a plate. It’s
race against time as the Agency attempts to lure their adversary out
of hiding and into their somewhat ambiguous trap. Maybe then Cate can
finally focus on love.
Hope
Feisty Lawyers Book 4
No one knows what they’re made of until they’re broken. At the
tender age of twenty-two, Hope Ali has finally joined the
organization of her dreams, the Agency, an elite group of attorneys
who go undercover to right wrongs the law can’t. The requirements
are stringent, the training exhausting.
After seeking asylum
in the United States when she was sixteen, Hope and her father,
Sheikh Harun Ali, settled in a quiet Wisconsin town, hiding from
those who had placed a price on their heads. Still, she excelled,
finishing her university and law school education by the time she was
twenty-one.

Now, after breezing through the Agency training
program, Hope appears to be indestructible—until she is assigned a
simple task during the rescue of an author among the disappeared in
the UAE. The task? To distract the woman’s captors until she can be
spirited out of the country.
Unfortunately, a member of MISix
has other plans. In an attempt to disrupt the Agency’s mission, she
tips off one of Hope’s enemies, alerting them to her location. Hope
manages to lead the author’s captors on a merry dance, freeing
others to rescue her, until she is unexpectedly confronted with a
violent angry mob intent on harm.
She is left bloody and
broken. No one knows whether Hope’s body or her mind will heal.
Suddenly Hope is no longer just her name. It is also the one thing
she must embrace to find her new normal.
Cult
Feisty Lawyers Book 3
When college students begin disappearing from American campuses, a
notorious cult, God’s Delight, is the primary suspect. God’s
Delight has been hosting shows featuring sex, drugs, and rock and
roll around the country, and young people are flocking to them.

Among the missing is the President’s goddaughter, and he wants answers.
When he asks Agent Cade Matthews, a member of a secret covert
organization, to find her, the mission appears fairly
straightforward. Find the God’s Delight compound, determine whether
a welfare check on American cult members is warranted, and get out.
Simple. Clean. Easy.
Cade sends newly-married Agents Dianna Murphy and Anders Mark to the
University of Wisconsin to follow the trail to God’s Delight, but
when they wind up in Bolivia, things go sideways. Suddenly, what
appeared to be nothing more than a simple in-and-out could cost
Dianna her life. When an Agency extraction is ordered, chaos erupts,
and the question becomes, will anyone survive?
Infamy
Feisty Lawyers Book 2
When international law attorney Sheikh Harun Ali is lured to the Amazon
and warned of a frightening plot against the United States, he and
his wife, Marianne Benson, enlist the assistance of their neighbors,
covert agent Cade Matthews and his wife, Constitutional Law Professor
Janet MacLachlan. Ultimately, these feisty lawyers are pushed to the
wall, desperate to find a plane that has been buried in an unknown
cornfield, the passengers still on board. The terrorists’ hatred
for the Alis is absolute—the Alis once left their organization
bankrupt and broken—but they hate America more. And their fiendish
games are just beginning. They are seeking a much bigger prize—one
that could destroy a nation and possibly the world. An act that will
live in infamy.
Snatching Dianna
Feisty Lawyers Book 1
When suburban Milwaukee law student Dianna Murphy fails to connect with
her roommate, there is no real evidence that she has been snatched.
Until Law Professor Janet MacLachlan, a former covert agent,
discovers a single clue, one that points to a taking by a slave
trafficking cartel. In a race against time, Janet recruits her
husband, secret agent Cade Matthews, small-town Police Chief David
Manders and his wife, criminal defense attorney Julianna Constant,
and other law students to uncover the truth. Can they prove she has
been taken, before Dianna disappears without a trace?

TourBanner_The Sheriff's Baby Bargain

GENRE: Small town cozy contemporary romance

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

She’s just what the doctor ordered… but never knew he needed

 

U.S. Marshal-turned-Sheriff Taylor James can trace her family back to the original thirteen Marshals appointed by George Washington. She’s good at her job, but once they find out she’s the local law, she can’t get even one of her dates to stay past the appetizers. Her plan? Convince good friend and hot neighbor Dr. Gabriel Adams to give her dating lessons since his dance card is always full.

 

A survivor of childhood leukemia with no guarantee his remission will last, Gabe lives by two rules: Don’t get emotionally involved and don’t let his well organized life spiral out of control. When he’s given a baby, with his name on her birth certificate, he needs Taylor’s help. But dangling dating lessons in exchange? If that will get the dedicated sheriff to lend a helping hand, could it be a bargain worth making?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cover_The Sheriff's Baby Bargain

EXCERPT:

 

Gabe parked his Jeep behind her truck.

 

Taylor had to admit the man had the goods. With chestnut hair, cut short, and dark brown eyes, sporting a sexy sense of humor in triplicate, the rumors had to be true. Irresistible charm, coupled with the touch-me cleft in his chin, and a light growth of beard he never quite shaved smooth, his dating card most certainly had a wait list.

 

Taylor resisted fanning her face. She wasn’t one of his dating bunnies, and getting in line wasn’t on her must-do list. Gabe Adams was every woman’s fantasy. Just not hers.

 

He frowned at the bag in her hands. The line between his dark brows smoothed into a clarity that had her teeth grinding. “Want to talk about the latest dating disaster?”

 

A startling idea braked to a halt in her head. Shoving the crazy thought into a mental locker, she shrugged. “He had to rush off to an estate sale.”

 

“Likely story.”

 

“That’s what I thought,” she muttered, giving in to his charming smile.

 

“When did you tell him you’re the sheriff?”

 

She rolled her eyes. Here it comes.

 

She knew it. Her timing had been off. “Did you hear Our Town is opening at the new theater next month? Are you planning to go?”

 

He narrowed his gaze on her. Taylor squirmed. And not in a good way. “You told him right off the bat, didn’t you? I keep telling you to wait until the date is over before revealing you’re a lawman…woman…whatever. Guys aren’t keen on the idea that the gal they’re dating can ticket them for racing through residential districts or bust them for being non-compliant with local business laws.”

 

“You think he’s a felon?” She ground her teeth. That would be a great addition to her already smeared résumé.

 

She could see the headline in the Angel Point Gazette now. “Taylor James, Former U.S. Marshal Turned Small Town Sheriff, Seen At The Chowder House With Notorious Criminal.” Now she was going to have to check the man for wants and warrants.

**New Release!**
What Frees the Heart
Cowbird Creek Book 2
by Karen A. Wyle
Genre: Western Historical Romance
Can they set each other free?
Cowbird Creek has its share of
troubled souls. For Tom, a farmer’s son, losing his leg felt like
losing his future. Jenny, a young prostitute at Madam Mamie’s
parlor house, has never thought she had much future to lose.
But the job Tom is able to get leads him to rediscover a long neglected
talent. And both Tom and Jenny have a knack for hitting on new
possibilities. Can they, together, find a better path?
This novel, second in a series, returns to the small town of Cowbird
Creek, Nebraska, in early 1876, a few months after the conclusion of
What Heals the Heart. Several favorite characters from Book 1 make
return appearances.
“Truly a romantic tale . . . .
Wonderful characters, many with hearts of gold, small-minded
characters that truly showed their ignorance and dreams that couldn’t
be broken . . . from an author who lets her words feed our
imaginations.” – Tome Tender review
“Magnificent story . . . a remarkable historical romance . . . great chemistry
between the characters . . . It is always a joy to read this author’s
stories.” – Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews
What Heals the Heart
Cowbird Creek Book 1
Joshua Gibbs survived the Civil War, building on his wartime experiences to
become a small town doctor. And if he wakes from nightmares more
often than he would like, only his dog Major is there to know it.
Then two newcomers arrive in Cowbird Creek: Clara Brook, a plain-speaking
and yet enigmatic farmer’s daughter, and Freida Blum, an elderly
Jewish widow from New York. Freida knows just what Joshua needs: a
bride. But it shouldn’t be Clara Brook!
Joshua tries everything he can think of to discourage Freida’s efforts,
including a wager: if he can find Freida a husband, she’ll stop
trying to find him a wife. Will either matchmaker succeed? Or is it
Clara, despite her own scars, who can heal the doctor’s troubled heart?
Karen A. Wyle was born a Connecticut Yankee, but eventually settled in
Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. She now considers
herself a Hoosier. Wyle’s childhood ambition was to be the youngest
ever published novelist. While writing her first novel at age 10, she
was mortified to learn that some British upstart had beaten her to
the goal at age 9.
Wyle is an appellate attorney, photographer, political junkie, and mother
of two daughters. Her voice is the product of almost five decades of
reading both literary and genre fiction. It is no doubt also
influenced, although she hopes not fatally tainted, by her years of
law practice. Her personal history has led her to focus on
often-intertwined themes of family, communication, the impossibility
of controlling events, and the persistence of unfinished business.

Born to Blush
by Fran Connor
Genre: Historical Romantic Adventure
When she finds honest and paid employment far away from the Victorian Workhouse where she grew up, Mary leaves with hope and sadness in her heart.
Her future looks secure; that is the hope but she must leave behind a childhood friend, the son of a wealthy local family with whom she managed to cross the social divide; that is the sadness.
Not all employers in 1850s England are bad and young Mary works her way up the servants’ ladder to become lady’s maid to a kind aristocrat. She grows into an attractive young woman which does not go unnoticed by her employer’s lascivious husband.
When her Ladyship unexpectedly dies, the husband makes unwelcome advances towards Mary.
Her defiance of his carnal desires sets in motion a series of adventures and catastrophes.
This thrilling romantic adventure follows the plucky Mary on her journey into the depths of Dickensian England where she encounters a myriad of odd characters some of whom mean her harm while others strive to help her.
When someone from her past reappears, her joy is tinged with fear. Much has happened to her since last they met. To cross the social divide as adults is far more difficult than in childhood and romance instead of friendship complicates it even further.
Mary has a secret. Should it be discovered it will have her transported as a felon to Australia.
If you love your historical romantic fiction to have a gutsy heroine, this is the novel for you.
Fran now lives in SW France with his wife Viv after serving thirty three years in a UK police force retiring with the rank of Chief Inspector. He doesn’t do cop stories. He says he’s seen enough of the real thing. He enjoyed his time in the police during which he met many odd characters some of whom creep into his novels in very different circumstances.
Without wandering into the political minefield of today’s policing issues, he’s saddened by the current events.
He’s the author of nine novels and nine novellas published in his name and a host of others that he has ghostwritten.
Although he doesn’t restrict himself to a particular genre, the two he likes to work on most are Historical Romance with a large dose of Adventure and Contemporary Thrillers. Most but not all of his protagonists are female. Women in his opinion make more interesting characters as they are more complex and often need to think their way out of jeopardy rather than bash their way out.
He does do ‘steamy’ in some novels but not violence against women. It’s anathema to him after his service. If a woman is in a tight corner she gets out of it before anything serious happens to her.
Born to Blush falls in the Historical Romance genre.
When not writing, Fran keeps himself fit by walking Molly, a Griffon Nivernais dog who is the real boss of the house, tending his large garden and keeping his old farmhouse from falling down. Set in the French countryside surrounded by vineyards, orchards and ancient hilltop villages he finds it inspires his stories.
If you enjoy Born to Blush you may like two of his other Historical Romance novels “Passarinho and the Highlander” and “Honourable Lies”.

A Forgotten Gods Tale #1
by Christian Warren Freed
Genre: Epic SciFi Fantasy
It is a troubled time, for the old gods are returning and they want the universe back…
Under the rigid guidance of the Conclave, the seven hundred known worlds carve out a new empire with the compassion and wisdom the gods once offered. But a terrible secret, known only to the most powerful, threatens to undo three millennia of progress. The gods are not dead at all. They merely sleep. And they are being hunted.
Senior Inquisitor Tolde Breed is sent to the planet Crimeat to investigate the escape of one of the deadliest beings in the history of the universe: Amongeratix, one of the fabled THREE, sons of the god-king. Tolde arrives on a world where heresy breeds insurrection and war is only a matter of time. Aided by Sister Abigail of the Order of Blood Witches, and a company of Prekhauten Guards, Tolde hurries to find Amongeratix and return him to Conclave custody before he can restart his reign of terror.
What he doesn’t know is that the Three are already operating on Crimeat.

The Princes of Stone and Steel
Roshambo Rising Book 1
by Sarah Zolton Arthur
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance
She must remember the past to save the future.
What starts as the abduction of Millie Merchant turns into an awakening of bitter truth. Her life is a lie. Her family a fake. It’s all been part of an elaborate hoax to keep her from her destiny. A destiny that lies in the land of Roshambo.
The lines between fantasy & reality blur as she’s transported to a fantastical realm boarding on extinction. Struggling to make sense of it all, Millie is presented with two princes determined to win her hand. One has her best interest at heart, the other seeks control of the realm. But who can she trust in a world full of strangers?
War is looming. Nightmarish beasts prowl the lands. It falls to Millie to be the salvation of Roshambo. For she alone is the ruler the Outliers have been searching for. The origins of rock, paper, scissors come alive in a tale far more twisted than a simple child’s game.

Wide Awake
The Goddess Chronicles Book 1
by K.B. Anne
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Where witches, werewolves, and magic aren’t just bedtime stories, they’re my story.
If I keep following the advice of Scott, my reputation for being a badass will be ruined. How dare he expect me to attend class when there’s all sorts of weird voodoo crap going on?
Gram tells me Druids live among us. They worship the forgotten Celtic gods that once ruled the Earth, and for centuries, they’ve practiced in Vernal Falls without incident.
I know nothing about Druids or Celtic gods. I only know the visions began when Breas, the new foreign exchange student, moved in next door. I also know my best friend, Lizzie, is obsessed with the spell book I found in Gram’s attic.
And someone is following me . . . which I find oddly comforting.
Breas provokes me–I mean really pisses me off. My friends protect me–but it’s mostly from myself. And a mysterious stranger wants me. I’m not sure what his intentions are, but I’m willing to take the risk.
Meanwhile, evil forces are at work, and I need to decide if I’m the one to save the world from them. Any guesses what I think?
The Goddess Chronicles are a fast-paced contemporary fantasy adventure with a kick-butt heroine, some hot powerful heroes, and loads of magic just to make things more explosive. If you like Linsey Hall, M. Lynn, and BR Kingsolver, you will love The Goddess Chronicles.
**Only .99 cents!!**
Blood Moon
The Goddess Chronicles Book 2
It’s the final countdown to world domination.
So I accidently released Clayone, the Original Werewolf, which one would think would be the worst of my troubles… Oh, how wrong one would be. Gram and Uncle Mark, who happens to be my dad (I’m still reeling about that one), just informed me that I’m from a long line of Druids, and according to some prophecy I’m the Celtic Goddess Brigit reincarnated. I’m not even remotely magical, let alone a Goddess, but one of my friend’s is already dead and another one’s been bitten.
For now, Clayone’s trapped in a church, too weak to leave, but on the eve of Samhaim, October 31, during the Super Blue Blood Moon’s lunar eclipse, he will be more powerful than he’s been in a thousand years. Lucky me.
If he can destroy the reincarnated goddess while she’s in human form, the werewolves’ curses of imprisonment–the silver bullet and the full moon–will be lifted, and the unbridled reign of the werewolf will begin at last.
The fate of the world is in my hands, but the real question is, do I actually believe I’m Brigit, a reincarnated goddess, and if so, will I lock Clayone back in the hell where he came from before it’s too late? I think we all know the answers to those questions. All I really know is that the full moon has never looked so terrifying.
Dark Moon
The Goddess Chronicles Book 3
Time to put my magic to the test or die trying.
Scott worries about my soul. Can you believe that crap? I’ve killed multiple people because I was too darn stubborn to accept that I was the reincarnated Celtic goddess Brigit, and now, that I’ve embraced my goddess self, I’ve figured out how to bring everyone back from the dead, and he’s too busy worrying about my soul when what he should be worried about is my boot in his rear end.
To make matters more complicated, Alaric returned from his show with shocking news. If I was smart, I would hop on the next plane and get out of Kildares, but I’ve never been very good at taking care of myself.
And do you know who showed up? I can’t freaking believe it. I thought he was out of my life for good, but bad luck always follows me like many of my bad habits. I don’t have time to play games. I need to learn to use my magic before the Dark Moon approaches or I’ll miss out on my chance to bring back to life everyone who died trying to protect me.
Shadow Moon
The Goddess Chronicles Book 4
Three reincarnated gods walk into a wizard’s keep and break all the rules.
Once, Caer was a princess loved by her father, the faerie king, and they lived happily ever after until the eve of Samhain. Balor, a giant, one-eyed pirate, betrayed the king’s trust by spilling his blood across the throne room floor and claiming Caer as his prize.
Forced to live in the shadows, Caer’s only companion is an all-powerful shapeshifting wizard who does not even know she exists. Watching from afar, she learns what makes a warrior’s heart strong, but the early arrival of the brother and sister promise to derail her plans of revenge.
The hunt for Alaric continues, but Gigi’s magic can’t track him. Scott aims to help her by providing protection, along with constant banter, but his true love haunts his dreams. If he doesn’t find her soon, his sanity might break. Gallean feared the day Caer, Gigi, and Scott met for the trí cumhacht, the three powers, would be set into motion. Each of the three could barely control their own powers, let alone be able to handle the union of the three.
But, when three gods walk into a wizard’s keep, there’s bound to be trouble, and a good bit of mischief.
