Faith, hope, and love are standard.

But luck is always number four.

He’s a sinner when it comes to love; she’s a saint. They’re both searching for the elusive fourth leaf and a little luck. If they meet in the middle, they might just find it and each other.

Shamrock & Clover is a sweet Romantic Comedy chronicling the journey of one unlikely couple in their search for love

Author Bio

USA Today Bestselling & Award Winning Author, C.A. King, was born and raised in Halton County. She currently resides in Brantford Ontario, Canada with her two sons.

After the loss of her loving parents and husband, Ms. King was devastated. She decided to retire from the workforce for a year or two to do some soul searching. It was during this time that writing became her passion. She found she was able to redirect her emotions through her writing and in 2014 decided to publish some of her works.

I need to thank everyone for being so wonderful. It’s amazing when someone reads your work and enjoys the story. I already have people waiting for future books to be released.

Carol Ann King is proud to have her name join the list of Canadian born authors. She hopes her writing will help inspire another generation of Canadians to continue adding to the literary heritage and rich culture Canada already has to offer. Her books in The Portal Prophecies series are fictional fantasy stories based on opening the door to possibilities.

Ms. King has preorder now available.

Call it an allergy or a family curse, either way it boiled down to the same problem: Julietta Romero couldn’t go within six feet of mistletoe.

Forty-eight weeks, from January to the beginning of December, were spent filling the position as a top executive at a prestigious marketing firm—a five-year running record without a single incident. As long as she continued taking all her vacation hours all at the same time, nothing would change. Then, the worst scenario happened: with only a handful of days left before her flight, she found herself working round the clock on the firm’s biggest deal yet, and her boss wasn’t letting her leave until it was signed, sealed, and delivered.

Luke Winslow was in love with women, parties, and the holidays, and not necessarily in that order. Taking over one of his father’s companies didn’t fit into any of his plans, nor did a relationship that lasted longer than a roll in the sheets. There wasn’t a single person who had made him want to settle down and be serious, that was until she fell into his arms… several times. Now, he’ll do anything possible to stop her from escaping his charms, including holding off putting his John Hancock on the business deal his father instructed him to close.

It’s up to the magic of the season to bring this unlikely couple together with a little help from a pair of High Heels and Mistletoe.

This book is also a part of…. KISSES UNDER THE MISTLETOE!!!!

My Chat with Lorenth… and Marious…. and Gabriel ?

Hello and welcome!

You would not believe what happened to me last night! Read on and find out.

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

With my son at a sleepover, I was finding myself at a loss for something to do. With the thought of doing as little as possible, I shut down the computer, stretched out on the couch and thumbed through a list of movies I didn’t feel like watching. This wasn’t getting me anywhere. Perhaps I should read or listen to a book, but even that didn’t appeal to me. So, what was I going to do?

A light knock on the door settled my problem. Entertainment had arrived!!! Hopefully. I went to the door and open it and would have squealed in shocked delight, if a hand hadn’t shot out to cover my mouth to stop me. MARIOUS!!! The moment Marious removed his hand, he lifted a finger to his lips to signal for silence.

Marious grinned as he whispered. I have a surprise for you.

I was so excited I could have bounced. What did you bring me?

Marious chuckled as he instructed. Close your eyes and back into the apartment. I will show you in a moment.

Dare I hope? I could feel my inner-self wiggle in excitement.

I take a step back and hear the sounds of people entering the entrance area, before the door closes and the lock gives a click.

You can open your eyes now. Marious allows.

I can hear the smile in his voice and know this is going to be good. I open my eyes and notice a man that bears a strong resemblance to Marious in front of me. I look at the two of them and smile. There is a strong connection to Gabriel between them too. With a light teasing manner I comment. So it is true that the Eagle Claw lineage breeds true.

Marious and the Elf I believe to be his father laugh, then Marious answers. You know it. This is my father, Lorenth.

I quickly offer my hand in greeting, and Lorenth bows over it, before tucking it into the crook of his arm and escorting me into my living room.

I understand you are interested in hearing certain things about my illustrious brother that only we would know. Lorenth chuckled.

I am immediately interested. My readers would certainly be interested in knowing more about him.

Lorenth laughed and a dangerously amused glint appeared in his eyes. You know my stick in the mud brother used to have little or no sense of humor at all? Nor did he give me any credit for adding on to his extensive education about the members of the female sex. I had him tutored by the best.

I raised an eyebrow at Lorenth and asked. Dark Elven Squad members are the best?

Lorenth smirked as he answered, For what Gabriel needed to know, there are none better. He learned to appreciate his gifts after a few ambushes. Of course he would never admit that in public.

I smiled as I ask, You sure about your facts?

Lorenth grinned and asked, Which of many are you asking about, the Dark Elven Elite Squad? I checked them out personally during my formative years. I man needs to know how to treat a woman in bed. I am sure Eden appreciated his technique.

I doubted it, but hey, what do I know. Then again, considering how these Elven men are built, how could Eden not?

Lorenth smiles as he watches me for a few moments, then offers. If you are interested, I can send one of the Dark Elven men to teach you a few lessons for when you meet your own Life Mate. It makes life very, very interesting.

Marious clears his throat and taps his father on the shoulder. I think you are getting carried away, Dad.

Lorenth shrugs and brushes the matter off. Depends how agreeable Enikő is. Then he turns to me, What do you think? Would you like to get lessons from a Dark Elven male? I can promise you that you would be still smiling in the morning, much as the girls used to put a smile on Gabriel’s face. He was such a sourpuss.

I laugh and reply. As tempting as that sounds, I think I better forego the pleasure. But what is this about a Life Mate of my own?

Marious sighs and mumbles, Sagan is going to kill you.

Sagan? I can’t help but wonder what the alien god has to do with this. I open my mouth to ask and I hear pounding on the door, followed by a voice much like Lorenth. Lorenth, are you in there spreading lies to our friend?

Marious grins maliciously as he opens his mouth to answer. Lorenth gives him a warning look and his smile turns smug as he mouths a reply. You are so busted, Dad.

Lorenth shoots Marious a look of knowing and replies. You ratted me out, you miserable fink. You are such a dead Elf.

Marious chuckles as he replies. Bite me. He then called out. In here Uncle Gabriel, I tried to stop him, but you know Dad.

The door flies open and Gabriel walks through. There is s menacing look on his face. The last time you did anything like this I spent three days dangling from a tree. I am not going to let you get away with it again.

Marious murmured from the side of his mouth at his father. Busted, big time.

Lorenth doesn’t look like he cares much as he smiles at Gabriel and spreads out his hands. We have barely had time to say hello.

You told her about the Elite guards, didn’t you? Gabriel growled.

Me? Lorenth asked innocently.

A moment later, Gabriel slung Lorenth over his shoulder and walked out of the room with him. Marious snickered as he watched the two brothers walk out of the apartment. I look at Marious and ask. What is going to happen?

Marious laughed and answered. The last time Dad pulled something like this, Gabriel told him that he was going to tie him to the underside of the back end of a horse.

I nearly choke at the image that brings up, then look up at Marious with an incredulous expression. Gabriel isn’t serious.

Marious laughs as he walked out of the apartment, and before he closed the door, he promised. I will send pictures, although don’t expect them to last long before they disappear. If Gabriel finds out about those, Dad will have company.

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

As you probably know by now, the Elves are unpredictable and I never know when and how they will come by. I love every minute of their shenanigans.

Check out book 1 in the Elven Legends series by M. A. Abraham releasing October 20, 2020 and find out about Gabriel and Lorenth.

The moment Gabriel’s father, Tyrian, looks upon his son he knows the child is destined for greatness. It is something he is determined to train him well for, as he knows the Fates never give gifts of this magnitude without a reason.

Danaë, Gabriel’s mother knows her mate well enough to fear for the way he will teach their son. Tyrian isn’t the only one aware of the heavy hand of the Fates. She does as well and is determined to shield him from the harsh road he will be forced to travel. It is a dream that will be denied when she is killed in battle when Gabriel is only six.

It is the beginning of Gabriel’s climb to power and how he comes to be known as the fiercest warrior in the Elven lands. He is both feared and respected by friend and foe alike. In war Elven Warriors shout their battle cry, ‘Eagle Claw’ as they race to attack their enemies. Their enemies quake at the sound as they know who they will soon face. He is Gabriel, High Lord General of the Combined Elven and Fae Armed forces, and he has no equal in the land.

You can read Chapter 1, click here.

Pre-order links found here.

Gabriel is one of the most favoured characters in the Elven Chronicles and his followers will be delighted in learning more about him and his past.

If you are not a fan yet of Ms. Abraham’s Elven stories, I hope you will give the series a try and become one too.

My review: 5 stars

I really loved the book and finding out more about Gabriel, it really gives a better understanding of him. I cried reading how he cared about his men after the battle, when he stopped and talked to the dying Elf. Loved seeing Marious again, he was my first love in the Chronicles. Spending time in the Elven Empire is like going home.

Sign up to Ms. Abraham’s blog and follow on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.

To celebrate the new release, Ms. Abraham is offering an ebook copy of ‘The Eagle Claw Legend’ to one of you. Sexy Mr. Random will choose a winner from the comments on release day after 3pm EST. GOOD LUCK!

Until next time, happy book reading / listening and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

To Julie

Another bright star has passed away and my heart is breaking. My condolences to her family… and to her daughter: Words are not enough and will not lessen the pain you feel right now, but celebrate her life and remember the good times.

My friend Julie, who I have known for many years on-line. A great friend and bright soul, her wicked sense of humour and dead-pan comments made me laugh out loud many times. I love her name, if I had a daughter, her name would’ve been Julie.

She shared my passion for books and she sure loved her SEALs, cowboys and the rogues too. Julie was a big supporter of my blog from the beginning, she shared and commented on all of them.

Another opportunity to meet in person lost. We talked and planned to meet up with her when going over the pond to visit my niece, but that didn’t happen either.

I will miss you Julie! Many friends will miss you, will remember and laugh thinking of big buckles…

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

Well, what do you think? Did you enjoy the chat?

Her story is Love Out of Bounds by Tricia Daniels, one of my fave authors.

Nate Ross was everything my over protective Irish brother warned me about. He was older, impulsive and a player.

He was always on the road with the band and would eventually leave me broken-hearted. In my brothers own words, Nate wasn’t good enough for me. Now I have to lie to my family about falling in love with him.

Author Bio

Tricia Daniels lives in a small town in Southern Ontario, Canada, where she raised three kids as a single parent. Creativity and imagination is something there is never a short supply of in her home. Between her quick wit and wicked sense of humor she found that she has a passion for writing steamy romance novels. Her goal is simple, tell her story, warm a few hearts, shed a few tears, share a silent chuckle, and occasionally, make people blush.

Love inspires me to write. I love when the characters take over the story and plot twists develop that I hadn’t planned. l love when you read and you get all warm and squishy at the good parts. I love the journey to the HEA even though sometimes that road has a lot of bends in it. I love how two imperfect characters can love each other perfectly. My reward, my inspiration is experiencing through them, a love so deep that I feel it in my own heart.

My Chat with Chase and Kayla – “Sinners and Saints” Anthology – 6

Another double treat for you from the Sinners and Saints Anthology.

Welcome! Welcome!

What is your full name?
Chase Nelson
Kayla Quincy
Oh I love that name… KAYLA

Do you have a nickname?
Chase blushes and looks down at his hands a small smile on his lips Kayla calls me Fluffy stupid i know but I like it. It’s how I knew she accepted all of me.
I don’t have… I take that back… firecracker! Chase calls me that when I get all fired up over something.

What is one word best describes you?
Just one word? I would have to say Primal. I feel the call of the wild all the time since I became an anchor.
I would say determined. I never back down. When I decide to go for something, I go all the way and put everything into it.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I like comfortable. I’m in my favorite faded jeans a black and blue plaid flannel button up long sleeve shirt and hiking boots.
I am wearing a black free flowing skirt that comes down to my ankles it has a bright blue butterfly on the left side on the bottom, a white silk button up shirt and Black sandals.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She did an ok job. I think I would have been a little smoother around Kayla. Kayla seems to think Megan got me just right.
I think Meg did alright. I think she should have given me a bigger salary.

What makes you laugh out loud?
I have to work really hard at not laughing when Kayla tries to help around the cabin. She is a city girl through and through. So, country living, and chores are a bit awkward for her sometimes.
I love watching Chase and Teddy when they are in wolf form. They act like pups. It is the cutest thing.

What is your favourite dessert?
Key lime pie is my weakness. Sweet and tart and so easy to make.
Oh god… best desert? Chase is such a good cook. I guess I would have to say egg custard pie. I know it sounds weird since I am from the city but the first time, I ate it… it just melts in your mouth.

What is your favourite drink?
Coffee! I need my coffee otherwise my inner wolf looks like a sweet puppy compared to my human side without coffee.
Sangria. It’s light and fruity.

source

I love Sangria too, especially the fruit LOL I just found this recipe for Blood Orange Sangria YUM

What is your greatest fear?
I worry all the time that I will give in to my primal instincts. It’s alien to me this power became a part of me when Sam grounded me to the earth, and I became immortal. I have no idea what I will become if I give in to the power inside.
I am terrified of being trapped or buried alive. Just the thought of it sends my blood pressure soaring.

What is your favourite colour?
My favorite color is blue. The sky, the lake, the color of Kayla’s eyes… Yeah blue is definitely my favorite color.
I love white. The snow in winter and the color of Chase’s fur. Its just so pure and calming.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing usually but if we have guests over, I will sleep in a pair of grey sweats.
I usually wear an oversized shirt or a set of Pajamas if it’s cold.

What is the perfect romantic date?
I haven’t been on a real date in seventy years. I have been stuck in the forest. So, I’m a bit rusty. I guess a homecooked meal, a long hike to see all the scenic spots and dancing under the stars.
I think a perfect date would be going out and having a nice candlelight dinner, going out dancing, then maybe a walk in the park after dark talking hand in hand.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I am not ticklish. Why? What did Kayla tell you?
I didn’t say anything she laughs Yes, I am ticklish everywhere.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Cinnamon. It’s spicy and smells like home.
I think my favorite smell is the bathroom right after Chase finishes a hot shower. His soap and cologne are heavy in the air. It reminds me of the woods at the cabin after a heavy rain and the night life of the big city. It’s really hard to explain.

I look at Kayla and ask – When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His shoulders I love broad shoulders, then his eyes you can really tell a lot about what a man is like by looking in his eyes.

I look at Chase and ask When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
What do I notice first…? Her scent would be the first thing I would notice then her eyes you can tell a lot about a person by looking into their eyes. A woman’s voice she has to have a sexy voice. Then I would look the rest of her over.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yeah, Kayla she is amazing beautiful and smart. She’s a short firecracker. Not to mention the most determined reporter I have ever met.
I do now, Chase is the first guy I have had a real relationship with. I’ve dated and had fun but my career has always come first. With Chase I don’t have to choose he supports my being a reporter and wants to see me succeed.

What is one word best describes him? I ask Kayla
The one word that come to mind is natural. He just seems to fit no matter where or who he is with it all seems to come so natural to him.

What is one word best describes her? I ask Chase
Bulldozer. When she gets ahold of a story or she thinks one of her friends are in trouble she will push through anything to get to what she wants or needs to get things done.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, our story is the first in The Hunter’s Series. Kayla answers. then Chase continues Hunters are trying to destroy the paranormal world of shifters, witches, and other mystical creatures. We have to take down the organization and save everyone we can.

It was a pleasure meeting you both and I am looking forward to reading your story.

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

Well? What do you think? Did the chat pique your curiosity? Sure did mine.

Their story is A Solstice to Remember by Megan Kuykendall, a new to me author.

Chase is a wolf-shifter and the leader of an elite team of witches and shifters that protect the supernatural people from the Hunters. When they finally catch up to a siren that is killing young witches, he sacrifices his freedom to trap her in a cavern in the Smokey Mountains Reserve. He has spent the last 75 years not being able to go more than 10 miles from the cavern.

Kayla works for a small paper. She has a shot at becoming the new travel writer if she can nail this latest story. She is headed to the Smokey’s to learn about a sleepy little town that has great fishing and hiking and oh yeah, a wolf that saves people but only on the Winter Solstice. Not that she really believes it. She will stop at nothing to get her story.

The Solstice is only a couple days away when Kayla mistakes Chases home for her cabin. She ends up getting tangled up in the fight to find a way to finally destroy the siren and free Chase from his prison. Will she stay when she finds out that supernatural creatures exist, and she is falling for the Solstice Wolf? Or will this beauty run from her beast?

LOVERBOY by Sarina Bowen – Cover Reveal

I am so happy to be part of the cover reveal for this book by one of my fave authors.

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

Loverboy

by Sarina Bowen

book 2 in The Company series
Release Day: December 1, 2020

CREDITS: Photo by Wander Aguiar, Design by Hang Le

Secrets, desires, and exquisite pie. It’s all in a day’s work at The Company.

Growing up, I was the rough guy from the wrong neighborhood who couldn’t catch a break. Posy was the pampered girl I tried to impress. But I managed to steal only a single kiss before I had to skip town.

Now I’m back, and the tables are turned. Posy runs a struggling pie shop. I’m the VP of a secretive billion-dollar security company.

Not that I can tell her.

There’s a murderer on the loose in New York, and he seems to spend a lot of time at Posy’s shop. I can’t let on that I’m here to bring him down before he can harm a hair on her pretty head.

Going undercover as Posy’s new barista wasn’t my idea. I don’t even drink coffee. But now I have to call her “boss,” and do everything the curvy perfectionist asks of me. I’d forgotten how much we infuriate each other, and that she somehow fills me with both irritation and desire in the same breath.There’s nobody more skilled at stealth ops than me. I can bring this killer down. Right after I take a cold shower. And just as soon as I figure out how to make a skinny peppermint latte with milk poured in the shape of a kitten…

Add it to your Goodreads TBR list.

Preorder links are here.

Check out book 1 in The Company series while you wait for book 2.

My Chat with Frederick and Amelia – “Sinners and Saints” Anthology – 5

Hello and welcome!

Today I have a double treat for you. Read on and meet them.

Welcome! Welcome!

What is your full name?
Frederick… and whatever last name is acceptable for the time period.
Amelia… and whatever last name my husband has at the time.

Do you have a nickname?
Fred.
People try to give me a nickname, but I don’t really like them. I like it when Fred calls me “Miss” though.

What is one word best describes you?
Valiant.
Persistent. Although Fred would say I really mean stubborn.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Dark jeans, tight black shirt with a v-neck sweater overtop, and a newsboy cap.
Stretchy comfy jeans, a tank top and a loose-neck sweater overtop.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Perhaps, however I think she could have described my svelte body and dashing good looks more.
Sure. It’s a bit embarrassing to remember how timid I was in my youth before Fred and I were together, but she got my personality just right.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Listening to young women talk on the phone when they think I can’t hear them. They share the most awkward conversations while riding the bus because they forget that I exist.
When Fred tries to fit in with young people in the world and he uses the phrases wrong.

What is your favourite dessert?
Warm rhubarb pie. They make it with strawberries nowadays but my Mom used to make it with just rhubarb when I was young. It’s one of the last things that brings back her memory.
I love rhubarb & strawberry pie, my fave pie actually.
Definitely Indian Pudding! Warmed up with a dollop of ice cream on top. Yum! Best comfort food ever.
I will have to look that up, never heard of it.

What is your favourite drink?
I wasn’t a big drinker in my younger days, but I’ve come to appreciate a good old “Old Fashioned” when I take time to go to the bar. Otherwise sweet tea works just fine.
I made a few of those in my days working as a bartender.
I don’t really drink. I like sweet tea, mostly. If I feel like having a drink, we go to the bar and I ask them to make me a chocolate martini or something sweet and fancy. I don’t usually finish the whole thing before Fred is carrying me to the car.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing Amelia.
Losing Fred.

What is your favourite colour?
Blue.
Emerald Green.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing if possible. But sometimes pajama pants.
I have a long cotton tshirt that is my favorite. It’s long enough that I don’t feel obligated to wear panties while walking around the house before bedtime. I just don’t feel comfortable sleeping naked.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Going to a putt-putt course and ending with ice cream and then cuddling at home.
Anything that is a surprise.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Nowhere.
Don’t let him lie to you. He’s ticklish on the arches of his feet. I’m ticklish just about everywhere.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Amelia. She always smells like fresh laundry and pencil shavings.
The salty smell of the sea. Or caramel. 

When you look at a man what catches your interest? I ask Amelia.
Everything about Fred. But mostly his eyes. Men these days don’t really have that sparkle in their eyes anymore like they used to… not like Fred.

I turn to Frederick and ask When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I’m a people watcher. Every woman catches my interest. There’s only one that has ever caught my heart.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Yes, Amelia.
Yes, Fred.

I look at Amelia and ask What is one word that best describes him?
Stubborn. And of course brave.

Then I turn to Frederick What is one word that best describes her?
Stubborn, but smart as a whip and more beautiful than any jewel.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
It seems like every year with Amelia is a new chapter in our lives, every era is a new series.
The future is one thing I can never predict, but I can say we have lived many many series in our history together. I guess we will just have to wait to see if the author decides to keep writing the next part.

Thank you both for spending time with me, looking forward to reading your story.

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

Hope you joined the chat and will read their story too.

Their story is Beware the Blue Moon by S. E. Winters, a new author for me.

It is said to beware a full moon, for it can make people crazy. But what about love? Especially a love that comes only once in a blue moon?

Listen to a tale, told by a simple man driving a bus, to a studious woman heading home at the end of a long day, of a love so epic that the tale has been handed down for generations along the shore. It begins like all others with a man who fell in love with a girl who lived with a protective father, and the need to prove his worth.

Unfortunately, this tale ends in screams and blood, but the simple man’s story continues long after the bus ride ends. Will you be brave enough to hear the rest?

Author Bio

S.E. Winters (a.k.a. “Snow”) is an author, mother, wife, and curious individual. No topic is left unexplored in her mind, and what happens as a result is anyone’s guess. Branching off from her romance writing duties (as Raven Genevieve), S.E. Winters decided to dip her toes in the waters of the mysterious, paranormal, possibly macabre, and even horrible. I mean, what good is having nightmares if you can’t do anything with them after you wake up?

Raven Genevieve is inspired by life and the women she sees for her romance novels. Feeling that the world needed to change its approach to love, she started writing to get thoughts out of her head, and what happened was a story inspired by herself and every woman that she had ever met. Now she continues to write stories that include all the things that women experience in real life, including sex and love.
