Thumbnail Thursday: Celata, Dixon, Rogers


Thanks for stopping by. I have a little something for everybody today. Fantasy fans are sure to love Aisling by Eli Celata. For a less edgy read, Nell Dixon‘s Looking for Juliet is a contemporary medical romance, with just a hit of suspense. I love that it’s set in rural England. Inspirational author, Felicia Rogers, is back with One of Twelve: book two of her Meaningful Numbers series.

Enjoy!

 

Blurb:  When Jess discovers her reflection is a separate being, her world turns upside down. She is drawn into an multidimensional war for survival alongside her reflection – an Aisling of the 2nd Dimension. As they fight to protect Earth from mind-controlling parasitic leeches, Jess finds herself falling for her Aisling, Kilpeni.

Their love presents a twisted reflection of the story of Narcissus which both recognize, but for every reason they shouldn’t be together, they find more that draws them to each other like moths to a flame. Add in an interfering omnipotent being in charge of overseeing their progress who communicates through branded telegrams, and this pair of star-crossed lovers are doomed to be together forever yet worlds apart.

Dr. Neil Forrest’s introduction to Juliet, his new practice nurse got off to a fiery start in more ways than one. Juliet, and her small son, Charlie are hiding out from something or someone, but who and why?

Neil quickly realizes that he has to leave his own past behind if he is to be there when it counts for Juliet, and for Charlie.

Thumbnail Thursday: Barnes, Romanin, West

The Hunted (Book 2 in the Knight’s Academy Series), by Emerald Barnes, is for those of you who enjoy paranormal and fantasy reads. The cover says a lot, don’t you think? If vampires aren’t your cup of tea, check out Abby’s Letters, by Dana Romanin–a heartwarming YA novel dealing with a painful past, uncertain future, and sisterly love. Rounding out today’s list is Covered, by E. A. West, a story about escaping an abusive relationship, and the tough, yet tender group there to help.

I hope you enjoy this week’s diverse selection.

 

 

Blurb:  Myka Williams has been forced out of Knight’s Academy and is on the run, constantly moving to keep the vampires off her trail until Preston’s venom is no longer coursing through her veins. But she isn’t alone.

Brent Jacobson is her protector, training her and teaching her how to be the werewolf she’s destined to be. He’s annoying, stubborn—and hot. But there’s something he isn’t telling her.

Myka has to come face-to-face with the truth of who she really is. Will she find safety, or will she always be hunted?

Blurb:  For years, Jane’s mom told her horror stories about her time spent in foster care. Now she’s determined to keep her little sister from suffering the same fate.

Seventeen-year-old Jane Sanders has had to take care of her alcoholic mother and little sister, Abby, since her dad died seven years ago. And now Mom had to go and die too. Authorities determine it was a homeless transient who died in the fire of the old manufacturing plant, but Jane knows the truth.

There is no way she’s going to let Abby go into foster care which leaves her with one option—fake her mom’s life. As far as Abby knows, their mom is in rehab. And Jane wants to keep it that way. She’d be eighteen in a few months then she could become legal guardian to her sister. With the help of her best friend, Clark, it should be easy, right?

Juggling nosy neighbors, a concerned school counselor, and an oblivious new boyfriend turns out to be harder than Jane thought. But the real problem begins when Abby starts writing letters to Mom. Through Abby’s letters, Jane sees a different side to their mom—a side she could have loved. And loving Mom is something she didn’t plan on. Because loving somebody makes it harder to ignore their death.

Blurb:  Lacey Daniels wants a normal life where she can go to dinner or the mall without constantly looking over her shoulder. Unfortunately, her abusive father is out of prison and more dangerous than ever. The Hawthorne Guardians, a local motorcycle club that protected her as a child, is her only hope for normalcy. Some of the faces have changed, but the credo is the same: protect the innocent. One Guardian, Ratchet, takes an interest in more than her safety. He wants her heart.

Despite her growing feelings for Ratchet, Lacey can’t escape the threat her father poses. With him free and seeking revenge, she will never be safe. Her only chance for a normal life — and maybe true love — lies with Ratchet, a man who is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her father from hurting her again… even if it means risking his life to save her.

Thumbnail Thursday: Kreger, Swafford, Williams

I hope you’ll enjoy this week’s selection of books. Fit to Love, by Jessica Rachel Kreger, is not only an inspirational romance but an inspirational story of a young woman fighting to get fit. A different kind of romance if found in Not My Idea, a historical fiction by Bethany Swafford. It’s the first book in The Gentlemen of Misfortune series. Just Claire, a coming-of-age story by Jean Ann Williams, tackles the difficult subject of depression, and how one young girl copes.

Happy Reading!

Blurb:  After her mother’s tragic death from diabetes, mousy Daisy Day embarks on her own life-saving mission to lose a hundred and fifty pounds. Handsome personal trainer and Army veteran, Eric Anderson, seems like the answer to her prayers, but he’s way out of her league…not to mention taken by a picture-perfect model almost half her age.

When Daisy lends her marketing acumen to launch Eric’s personal training business and helps him overcome his grief from losing his brother in Afghanistan, he realizes he has more in common with her than his own girlfriend. Yet when the hours of training pay off, and Daisy is transformed into a head-turning beauty, he’s not the only man to notice.

Daisy Day is fit to love and she’s already fallen for Eric… but with his now ex-girlfriend chasing after him, and another man in Daisy’s arms, is it too late for him to catch her?

Blurb: “Lucas, you must return home.”

Twenty two year old Lucas Bywood abandons his Grand Tour in response to those words from his father. Everything is not well at home and he finds himself in a bit of a fix. A little warning that his father had made tentative arrangements for his marriage would have been nice but Luke really wishes it had been anyone other than the young lady chosen. After all, Phoebe Ramsey had always been an annoyance and any time they had spent together had resulted in physical injuries for one of them.

Just when Luke thinks he’s escaped that particular future, he finds himself courting a young woman he doesn’t want, a furious best friend who wants a duel to satisfy honor, and the responsibility of finding who and why someone had caused an accident for his mother.

This was not his idea of what the summer was going to be like.

I hope you enjoy this week’s selections. Adventures in Barn Town by Eve Culley is a children’s book about farm life and farm animals–but not your ordinary barnyard crew. Book one in the Seasons Series is Season of Hope, by Sara Jane Jacobs. This inspirational romance spans more than a decade in the lives of Tyler and Amanda. Take a peek into Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy‘s holiday romance with serious undertones. Will love prevail? You’ll have to read Scarred Santa in order to find out.

 

Blurb: Welcome to Barn Town where the residents are friendly and there is mischief and mystery around every corner. Things are changing in Barn Town and Ol’ Stripe is keeping his eye on the new arrivals and the current residents in an attempt to keep peace.

Blurb: When Amanda Jarvis prays that a special friend will move into the vacant house near her isolated mountain home, she isn’t upset when God sends a boy instead of a girl. But Amanda’s not the only one receiving unexpected answers to her prayers. After fleeing with his mother from an abusive father, Tyler Armstrong finds much-needed love and acceptance with Amanda’s family over the next ten years.

As high school graduation nears, Tyler is shocked when one carefree afternoon with Amanda churns up an inner turmoil he would have never imagined; he’s crushing on his best friend. And for the first time in his life he’s hiding a secret from Amanda. Convinced the timing is all wrong, Tyler pushes his feelings aside as he and Amanda prepare for the future. He will soon begin training to pursue his dream of becoming a Navy SEAL, while Amanda makes plans to spend the summer in Manhattan with her aunt and then return home to the community college.

When Amanda’s summer job catapults her into a modeling career, she readily accepts the much-needed distraction. Tyler’s impending deployment is turning her world upside down. Along with the fact that she’s falling for her best friend. And, for the first time in her relationship with Tyler, she’s hiding a secret, too.

Phoebe Garrison, Amanda’s controlling aunt, is thrilled when she is given the power to act on behalf of her underage niece. Bored with her Fortune 500 advertising agency, becoming Amanda’s manager is just what she’s been looking for to rekindle her aspirations. But as Tyler becomes aware of Phoebe’s obsession to push Amanda into supermodel status, tensions rise. As the three of them become entangled in a mass of concealed ambition and desire, each will make decisions that will send ripples of turbulence across their futures.

Thumbnail Thursday: Nass, Taylor

Happy Thursday! I have some wonderful books for you to check out today. Healing Rain by Katie Nass is a contemporary young adult that deals with some serious subject matters. This book was just voted Christian Small Publisher’s YA Book of the Year. Congratulations, Katie! Stephanie Taylor just released her latest inspirational novella, Always and Forever. There’s just something about a guy in a cowboy hat!

Back Cover Blurb: Some people just naturally seem to have it all. Until five months ago, sixteen-year-old Rain Sawyer was one of those people. She had the perfect life, with a loving, wealthy family and a strong Christian faith, complete with popularity, sports, clubs, and good grades.

When one tragic incident shatters everything Rain thought she knew, she finds herself five hours away, starting over in a small town very different from her glamorous big-city life.

Armed with a different outlook on life – one that no longer includes her faith – she struggles to create a new identity for herself.  Determined to keep her dark past as secret, she navigates through a new school year, a new town, and new relationships while trying to figure out who she wants to be.

Book Blurb:  Six months ago, everything between Liam and Cora came to a screeching halt after an explosive fight.

Cora had trusted her life once before to a man who shattered her heart in pieces. There was nothing wrong with taking time to make sure mistakes weren’t made again, right? But she’d called it the night Liam came back to apologize, never giving them an opportunity to find out.

But when a devastating tragedy rocks her family, she finds Liam as her comforter and protector. As they grow closer once again, can Cora let go of her fears to give Liam another chance?

Thumbnail Thursday: Barnes, Brandt

Welcome! Today I have some fascinating books for you to check out. If you love fantasy and science fiction, this is the place to be!

The Marked, by Emerald Barnes, is a young adult paranormal fantasy. It’s book one of the Knight’s Academy series. Today’s second book, The Turquoise Bones, is a science fiction fantasy by Steven R. Brandt. Both of these books are by fellow Clean Reads authors. I hope you’ll check them out.

Blurb: Myka Williams has never fit in with her peers, and although her adoptive parents are loving and supportive, she feels most at home alone in the woods.

When she’s offered a full scholarship to Knight’s Academy in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, she takes the opportunity for a fresh start. She soon learns that Knight’s Academy is more than just a school. Within the stone walls of the institution, humans and vampires are mixing, and their offspring are going unnoticed.

As Myka falls prey to the evil plan of the school, she makes a chilling discovery about her own heritage and realizes that she’s at the Academy for more than just an education. Myka must yield to her birthright at the risk of losing everyone she loves or succumb to the fate that Knight’s Academy has in store for her—a fate worse than death.

Blurb: Apjay speaks to the dead in dreams, and remembers words of a language forgotten long ago. He believes his gifts come from the invisible stars–lights that once ruled the night sky. The only person in his tribe who understands him, so he believes, is the beautiful Iota.

Iota is gifted healer who, as a child watched her father die of illness. While the messages Apjay brings from the dead comfort her, she has no trust for the stars whom she believes are to blame for her father’s death.

When Apjay decides to go on a spiritual quest, Iota fears the past is repeating and he will suffer her father’s fate. She will stop at nothing to save Apjay from the stars and himself. She’ll even follow him to the dreaded city of the starstealers.

Thumbnail Thursday: Taylor, Carder, Jones

Welcome! I have some amazing books for you to check out this week. Doubting Thomas, by Stephanie Taylor is a contemporary, inspirational romance that touches on all the romantic elements a reader looks for, and then some. Those blue eyes on the cover can’t help but draw a person in. Kadee Carder is back with Indelible, the third installment of Insurrection, her science fiction/fantasy trilogy. Rounding out today’s picks, is Taking a Chance on Love, by Rachel Jones. This clean romance is about dealing with circumstances life throws at you, and taking a chance on love.

Blurb: He doesn’t remember…but she does.

For five years, Thomas has lived without a past. A motorcycle accident left him with scars, permanent amnesia, and a lot of anger. But the scars aren’t all on the outside. He knows one day he’ll need to figure out who he used to be, but for now, he’s content in his misery and denial. If his family doesn’t care to find him, the feeling is mutual – until the love of a tender-hearted, sassy redhead changes his mind.

Alyssa Morgan vowed to locate her missing husband and has followed every clue, every lead, every hunch, hoping to find him and the reason for his disappearance. But fate has something else in store for her and puts in her path an aloof man who has her husband’s voice and the disfigured face of a stranger.

Torn between his past and their future, can they put their doubts aside and let love in?
