Kate Logan needs a safe haven, a place to start over after her modeling career disintegrates in scandal. But her hometown of Aspen Lake isn’t the sanctuary she hoped. Her vow of a low-key life is disrupted by a break-in and other strange happenings at her boutique. As the chair of Aspen Lake’s Gothic Revival Festival, she’s also drawn the ire of a religious fanatic. Kate is up to her stilettos in drama and intrigue including one sexy carpenter who’s determined to get in her way. 

New to town, Seth Stone is seeking inspiration and solitude to concentrate on his art. Short on funds, he agrees to take on a second job restoring the damage to Kate’s Closet. Trouble erupts along with the desire to get to know Kate better. When he’s used as a pawn in a smear campaign against his gorgeous boss Seth fights back. But now the whole town is watching. Including the man determined to further his own agenda. Time is running out with nowhere to hide.

Seth shook his head. “I moved here with the intention of concentrating on my art. I can’t afford to get involved with anyone right now. No matter how beautiful or appealing. You don’t seem like the sex and forget it type. And that’s all I have in me right now.”

Wasn’t that the story of her life? Men wanting to have sex with her but not interested in getting to know the real her? All they saw was the face.

She knew how to deal with men like that. She froze them out. “Well, thank you for being honest with me.”

Really, it was for the best. Did she want him to get to know the neurotic, insecure woman she’d become in the last six years? Did she want this beautiful man to see the real her? She should back away. Put more than two feet of distance between them.

“Tell me I’m wrong.” His Adam’s apple bobbed. “Then ask me to stay and I will.”

“No, you’re not wrong.” She looked away. Too tempted by far to risk being carefree enough to sleep with him. To kiss him goodbye afterwards. To work with him the next day like nothing had happened. Wished she didn’t believe in consequences. Or guilt.

“I should go.” He ran a hand over the stumble forming along his jawline before retrieving his shirt. At the door, with his back to her, he said, “I’ll see you tomorrow.”She nodded, but he didn’t see it. He was out the door. His boot treads fading as he jogged down the stairs.

Then silence. 

The kind that stretched to fill the four corners of a room. A quiet that left little doubt you were utterly and completely alone.

Hellkat by Robyn Roze #giveaway #romance #mystery #suspense

 Happy Monday!
My guest today is author Robyn Roze. Robyn has brought her newest release...HELLKKAT, a romantic mystery with a dash of suspense.

Kat James likes her men in suits, not cowboy boots. Is it time for a different kind of man?

Saddle up for a story filled with passion, mystery, unrequited love, and family drama. Can Tucker Williams prove he's the best man for Kat? Or will an old-flame win her back?

It won't matter, if Kat doesn't survive her family’s dangerous secret.


She hadn’t been prepared for the heavy-handed smack to her face that dropped her on all fours and blurred her vision. Leveraged on the coffee table, Kat reoriented her balance, cheek throbbing, the taste of iron on her tongue. She steadied herself to meet her brother’s furious stare. She dabbed at the warm blood pooled at the corner of her mouth while her eyes roamed the pristine white canvas of his starched business shirt, the narrow silk tie hanging perfectly straight. She swirled and centered the metal flavor in her mouth, then launched the red spray at him. He jumped back in obvious disgust, gawking at the contamination splattered on his custom-tailored shirt. His eyes, filled with loathing, flicked back to her, her sentence easy to read in them.

But he still hadn’t used the gun …

“If you haven’t already killed Kyle, you will.” The words, hard to think let alone speak, stuck in her throat. She swallowed the knot of emotion. “So I’m not negotiating with you. And you won’t use me to bring anyone else here. This is between you and me. And if these are my final hours, then they’re happening on my terms, not yours.”
Courage propelled her to take a step toward him.
The bewilderment on his face at her bold move empowered her. “I will make this messy. And I will make sure it all points back to you. This will not go according to your plan.” She paused. Her jaw ticked, and her lips turned up at one corner. “It will go according to mine.”

Author Bio 

Robyn Roze lives amongst the cornfields of the Midwest and telecommutes as an accountant. Writing was a childhood dream of Robyn’s. She won creative writing awards as a girl and teachers encouraged her to pursue a writing career. But pragmatism won out, and she boxed the dream away on the maybe-someday shelf.

Maybe-someday came for Robyn in 2013 when she published the Keeper Series, a new adult romantic suspense story. Then she shifted gears and decided to pen a novel with a much more mature cast—Chain of Title was born, her bestselling title. Readers have been loud in their demand for a sequel, and Robyn is currently working on the next chapter of Shayna and Sean's love story. And her latest book, HellKat, released in June 2015. All of Robyn’s stories contain one key element that her readers love: a strong, independent heroine. 
When she’s not spending time with her fictional families, she loves to spend time with her real one: her high school sweetheart, their two moody teenagers, and a pampered rescue mutt.

Through His Heart‏ by Deborah Camp


I've got a juicy Paranormal Romantic Suspense from Author Deborah Camp, today.
THROUGH HIS HEART is A Minds Eye Novel and this little gem is sure to send tingles up your spine.

Check it out...if you dare...


Deborah will award a $50 Amazon or BN GC to one randomly chosen winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

  A Minds Eye Novel

by  Deborah Camp

“Sending you an SOS.”

When psychic Trudy Tucker hears this plaintive cry in her mind and then connects psychically with a little girl’s kidnapper, she is drawn to a small town in Missouri where everyone is suspect – including herself and her lover, celebrated psychic detective Levi Wolfe. 
As she and Levi work together to sort through whom and what to trust, an innocent life hangs in the balance.              


Levi shifted his shoulders as if a weight had settled on them and his black brows knitted. His thick, sooty lashes tapped his cheeks as he squirmed a little. After taking a lung-filling breath, he let it escape in a long hiss. Trudy wondered what he was experiencing, what was going on in that brilliant mind of his. What did he see? Shadows moving in the distance? Souls stepping forward? A young girl emerging and answering his call? From the movement of his eyes behind his closed lids, she knew he was there . . . there among the spirits.

“Gregory,” he whispered.

His spirit guide! She sat forward, watching, waiting. He hadn’t connected with Gregory very much during the past few months. He’d told her that it bothered him, but that Gregory had reminded him that he only appeared when Levi needed guidance or centering. So, why had he appeared now? Was Levi having trouble? Had she been wrong to prod him into looking for Rachel over there?

“What’s going on?” Levi asked, his raspy voice carrying a sliver of doubt. “Who’s that? Is it . . . that’s not . . . no. No!” His eyes opened, wide and wild. He gasped for breath and emitted little grunts of panic with each exhale.

Trudy’s heart and spirits plummeted. “You saw her there? Rachel’s there?” A sob tore at her throat. How could she tell AmyLynn? Did the FBI know already?

“No . . . I . . .” Levi shot to his feet and scrubbed his face with his hands. “Fuck, fuck, fuck!”

“She’s there? Oh, my God, she’s dead. He killed her.” Trudy wrapped her arms around herself as she began to shake with the horrible knowledge. She’d failed. She’d been useless. Ineffective. A bad joke. The little girl . . . gone. Gone!

“I didn’t see Rachel.”

A Thin Slice of Heaven by p.m.terrell.‏

It's Friday!!!
Whoot! Whoot!

Let's get this summer weekend started with A Thin Slice of Heaven, a juicy paranormal-romance from author p.m. terrell.

You know it's not very often I have such established authors visit my blog, but when I'm lucky enough to have them, I love to find out their thoughts about the publishing industry. 

Sooo, I call p.m. terrell to center stage.
Take it away. 

* * * * 

What would I tell a new author?

My first book was published in 1984, eight years before smart phones, sixteen years before the iPad and fourteen years before Google launched. Most people didn’t have email addresses, queries were done the old-fashioned way with self-addressed-stamped-envelopes for the return of printed manuscripts, and editing was done with red pens. I’ve seen more changes in the publishing industry than I ever could have imagined, and one of the most profound changes has come through the rise of Indie authors and pop-up publishers.

So what would I tell a new author who is just getting started in this industry?

    1) Don’t quit your day job. It was true then and it’s still true today. You might believe your manuscript is the best thing to hit the world since fires and wheels, but trust me: it isn’t. Unless your publisher specifically tells you that they’re investing tens of thousands of dollars in your promotion and marketing campaign, you are not going to have people lined up around the block just for a glimpse of you. You won’t reach the New York Times bestseller list without somebody’s deep pockets, and your income probably won’t fund that yacht you’ve had your eyes on.
    2) Get your ego off your shoulder. There really is no room for big egos in the publishing industry. Publishers and literary agents will recognize an inflated ego from miles away and the doors will slam in your face. You are not special just because you wrote a book; you’re only special if you wrote a great one. And you won’t be the judge of that; the public will.
    3) Never write to stroke your image. If the reason you are writing that manuscript is for people to praise you, then stop writing now. If you ask someone for an opinion, be prepared for an honest one—and whatever you do, don’t shoot the messenger.
    4) Write because it makes you feel good. Every successful author knows what its like to be “in the zone” –as if the words, scenes and characters were being handed to you by some unseen muse. If your book is never published and another soul never reads it, it’s still a worthwhile venture if you enjoyed writing it or the act of writing transformed you.
    5) Never preach. Your book should never seek to impart your personal viewpoints unless you already have a claim to fame as a political pundit, religious zealot or noted expert, and the book is an extension of that. Otherwise, keep your opinions to yourself.
    6) Have a point. Don’t meander all over the place. Point A is where you started and Point Z is where you’ll end. It’s the telling of how you reached that final destination that is the story, and it must be concise and entertaining. Keep your plot in mind every step of the way.
    7) Keep it moving. Life is filled with minutiae. Books are not. Every page must propel the story forward; if it doesn’t, it’s just bogging things down.
    8) Learn the industry. Whether you are traditionally published or self-published, it benefits everybody if you can learn as much as possible about this industry: the editing process, the production process, distribution, retailers, publishers, marketing and promotional campaigns, royalty statements, assessing what works and what doesn’t. Because when that book is out of your hands, its success remains in your hands.
    9) Have a plan. Develop a strategy for getting your name and your book in front of the public, whether it’s through media coverage, physical book signings, Internet appearances, or a combination. Then be ready at a moment’s notice to change it, tweak it, fix it or start over. This industry is moving fast and, as Stewart Brand stated, “…if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.” He might have said it about technology but it’s true in the publishing industry as well.

   10) Remember it is a journey. Writing the book is the easy part; marketing it will be the most difficult task you’ll ever undertake unless you’re already a successful marketing guru. At one time, publishers gave books three months to sink or swim but that isn’t true anymore. You can’t give up three months or six months or nine months down the road. And if you can’t learn to enjoy the ride, it isn’t worth doing.

* * * * 

I have to say that is some of the best advise I've read for a new author in a long time
Thank you so much for sharing.

Now on to the good stuff, so grab a comfy chair and a cool drink because this little gem will have you hooked and wanting more in no time.


p.m.terrell will be awarding a Celtic Butterfly Suncatcher similar to the one mentioned in the book, symbolizing both the never-ending cycle of life and the metamorphosis of a butterfly to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

A Thin Slice

   of Heaven
by  p.m. terrell

She had arranged to meet her husband in Northern Ireland for a second honeymoon, but when Charleigh arrives at the remote castle, she receives a message that he won’t be coming—and that he’s leaving her for another woman.

Stranded for the weekend by a snowstorm that has blocked all access to the castle, she finds herself three thousand miles from home in a country she knows nothing about.

She is soon joined by Sean Bracken, the great-grandson of Laird Bracken, the original owner of the castle, and she finds herself falling quickly and madly in love with him. There’s just one problem: he’s dead.

As the castle begins to come alive with secrets from centuries past, she finds herself trapped between parallel worlds. Caught up in a mass haunting, she can no longer recognize the line between the living and the dead. Now she’s discovering that her appearance there wasn’t by accident—and her life is about to change forever.


“What’s happening?” Charleigh whispered. Her throat had grown dry and her voice was hoarse with tension. Though she attempted to keep her tone low so they would remain unobserved, it sounded loud and harsh in the strident atmosphere that seemed suddenly to have gripped the village. She felt anxiety growing deep within her and the urge to get back to the castle burgeoned with ferocity and urgency; but she realized with a sickening sensation in the pit of her soul that the growing inharmonious throngs were between them and the sanctuary of her room.

“Do not be afraid, m’ Leah,” Sean answered. He did not whisper but his voice was deep and taut. After a moment, he said, “They are reenacting an event that occurred… some time ago.”

“Oh,” she breathed. She should have felt relief but her insides continued to roil as if his explanation did not match the scene unfolding before her. Nervously, she said, “Reenactors. We have them in America.”

“You have witnessed them, then?”

“Yes. I find them very interesting…” She forced the words past her dry lips. “They reenact battles from the Civil War and the Revolutionary War, mainly.”

As the churning skies turned to the color of tar, Charleigh could discern the sources of the strange glow: they were torches held aloft by dozens of people. More were joining them, stragglers rushing from the village to catch up, while they began to spread apart in a more orderly column as they converged on the flat land they’d crossed on their way into the village. One man in the forefront stopped and began pointing and directing those that followed.

“These reenactments,” Sean continued, “were the people alive?”
