I really enjoy talented author, Carla Kelly’s, books!  This Tour is presented by Cedar Fort Publishing Courting Carrie in Wonderland by Carla Kelly Paperback, 320 pages Published March 1st 2017 by Sweetwater Books ISBN: 1462118720 (ISBN13: 9781462118724) Struggling through college and balancing her summer job in Yellowstone Park with the Wylie Camping Company, Carrie McKay simply doesn’t have time to consider romance.   Spanish American War Veteran Sergeant Major Ramsay Stiles also isn’t looking for love, busy with his own complicated affairs. But as the magic of Yellowstone starts making its way into their hearts, both begin to see love move up their priority list. MY REVIEW: Carla Kelly has done it again – created a delightful historical romance! This was a cute, relaxing tale, based on facts. This is a story of the turn of the 20th century Yellowstone park and tourist activity. This had a lot of interesting, factual events intertwined with references to the Spanish-American War events, tossed with the right amount of romance and adventure. Unlike other books of her, it took me almost half the book to truly get into it. I felt the foundation of the story was a little too drawn out, lacking…

Most people spend hours researching a new mattress, days researching a new car, and weeks researching a new home or job. Yet for a new dog, a companion for the next 10-15 years, the most they do is visit the nearest shelter or pet shop and buy whatever looks cute and appealing. It’s no wonder they end up disappointed. Whether you are looking for a purebred puppy or a charming mixed-breed, the type of dog you bring into your home matters. A quiet owner will struggle to keep up with a high-energy labrador mix, for instance, while an active outdoor family will be impatient with…

Digging in the Stars Katherine Blakeney Published by: Blaze Publishing Publication date: March 28th 2017 Genres: Science Fiction, Young Adult A lost ancient civilization and the tomb of a legendary king lie buried beneath centuries of ash on the volcanic planet Thror, but that’s not the only reason sixteen-year-old Carter has tricked her Archaeology of Outer Space class into coming here. Her best friend Conrad has just disappeared on a trip to Thror, leaving behind little more than a broken vintage camera. The strange and disturbing photographs she manages to extract make her suspect Conrad’s disappearance is somehow connected to the hidden tomb of the last king of Thror. Unfortunately, the ludicrously over-friendly ‘Furry Giants’ who have taken over the planet’s barren surface would rather offer her cheap souvenirs than answers, and the local officials insist they have no record of Conrad’s existence. Inspired by fear for Conrad’s life and the chance to make the greatest archaeological discovery of the century, Carter and her friends follow Conrad’s footsteps deep into the mountains of Thror’s forbidden Black Zone and launch an illicit excavation. Coded messages, stunning ancient ruins, and clues left by Conrad himself begin to surface as the young archaeologists…

At turns humorous, biting, poignant, and surprisingly tender, Ashes puts a new spin on family and dysfunction with a story that is at once fresh and timelessly universal.

Songs of Insurrection (Daughter of the Dragon Throne #1) by J.C. Kang Publication date: January 6th 2017 Genres: Adult, Fantasy Princess Kaiya’s voice could charm a dragon. Had she lived when the power of music could still summon typhoons and rout armies, perhaps Cathay’s imperial court would see her as more than a singing fool. With alliances to build and ambitious lords to placate, they care more about her marriage prospects than her voice. Only the handsome Prince Hardeep, a foreign martial mystic, recognizes her potential. Convinced Kaiya will rediscover the legendary but perilous art of invoking magic through music, he suggests her voice, not her marriage, might better serve the realm. When members of the emperor’s elite spy clan– Kaiya’s childhood friend Tian and his half-elf sidekick (or maybe he’s her sidekick?)– discover mere discontent boiling over into full-scale rebellion, Kaiya must choose. Obediently wedding the depraved ringleader means giving up her music. Confronting him with the growing power of her voice could kill her.

Falling for Boston by Leslie Kate Publication date: October 13th 2016 Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance As the youngest of four, Dylan has always been the baby. But don’t let that fool you; she’s not your average baby sister. Growing up with three older brothers left Dylan with a lack of femininity and in its place, a real guy’s girl personality. Sports, beer, burping, you name it; but don’t even think about going near her feet with a pair of heels. When Dylan meets Tyler Vaughn, the famous and devastatingly attractive football superstar at work one morning, she’s thrilled by his good stats, not his good looks.

Dylan speaks sports and sarcasm fluently but romance, now that’s something completely foreign to her. What’s an emotionally-allergic guy’s girl supposed to do with a…

Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into darkness.

Young Adult Books / March 4, 2017

  Welcome to this Release Day Celebration! Be sure to enter the Giveaway at  the end of this posting.     A BOY LIKE YOU YA Contemporary Romance Scheduled to release: March 3, 2017 BLURB: We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled me from death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe. And then he disappeared. Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has taken away my desire to dream. I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy. He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer, and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first saw…

Not until a crazed ruler from another world comes to collect her priceless tears and won’t take no for an answer.

M9B Friday Reveal – BLOOD ROAD by Amanda McCrina Tour & International Giveaway! (ends 3/9/17)
Young Adult Books / March 3, 2017

Today Amanda McCrina and Month9Books are revealing the cover and first chapter for BLOOD ROAD which releases April 25, 2017! Check out the gorgeous cover and enter to be one of the first readers to receive a eGalley!! A quick note from the author: The funny thing about historical fiction—or historical fantasy, in this case—is that it often reveals more about the present than it does about the past. It provides a lens through which we can understand and contextualize our own experiences. BLOOD ROAD is a tribute to my love of Roman history, but it’s also very much a product of its time. It’s a story about corruption and injustice and empire and a young soldier who stands up and resists, and writing it gave me the opportunity to ask hard questions about my own present and the part I play.   Title: BLOOD ROAD  Author: Amanda McCrina Pub. Date: April 25, 2017 Publisher: Month9Books Format: Paperback, eBook  Pages: 329 Nineteen-year-old Torien Risto has seen dissidents dealt with before. He knows the young local girl who just knifed him will hang for assaulting an Imperial officer, unless he can stop it.  Someone inside the provincial government is kidnapping Imperial citizens and selling them across the desert…

Pistols and Petticoats Book Blast & Giveaway! (ends 3/8/17)
Adult Books , Uncategorized / March 2, 2017

WELCOME TO THIS BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY (U.S./Can. only, sorry) FOR…. Pistols and Petticoats 175 Years of Lady Detectives in Fact and Fiction by Erika Janik March 2nd 2017 Book Blast Synopsis: A lively exploration of the struggles faced by women in law enforcement and mystery fiction for the past 175 years In 1910, Alice Wells took the oath to join the all-male Los Angeles Police Department. She wore no uniform, carried no weapon, and kept her badge stuffed in her pocketbook. She wasn’t the first or only policewoman, but she became the movement’s most visible voice. Police work from its very beginning was considered a male domain, far too dangerous and rough for a respectable woman to even contemplate doing, much less take on as a profession. A policewoman worked outside the home, walking dangerous city streets late at night to confront burglars, drunks, scam artists, and prostitutes. To solve crimes, she observed, collected evidence, and used reason and logic—traits typically associated with men. And most controversially of all, she had a purpose separate from her husband, children, and home. Women who donned the badge faced harassment and discrimination. It would take more than seventy years for women to…

For all YA Suspense fans, this is a series you won’t want to miss! Shattering Truths (Deadly Veils, #1) by Kyrian Lyndon Publication date: January 30th 2017 Genres: Suspense, Young Adult She was left fighting her demons alone . . . For sixteen-year-old Danielle DeCorso, the old house in Glastonbury was an eerie place to grow up. Coping with mental health challenges exacerbated by a traumatic family dynamic, Danielle watches from the window for two men in a dusty black sedan who keep circling the house and harassing her with phone calls. The two predators drugged her and her cousin, Angie, and then lured them from Pleasure Beach in Bridgeport to a secluded cottage on Long Beach West. She remembers feeling dizzy, the room spinning. She recalls screaming, crying, fighting, and then slipping in and out of consciousness. Angie, however, has no recollection of the incident. When Danielle attempts to jog Angie’s memory and convince their best friend, Farran, that the two strangers had victimized them, no one seems to believe her. Alone in her pain, Danielle remains guarded, obsessed, and withdrawn. Soon she is sinking deeper into a tumultuous world of adolescent isolation and change. Grief, guilt, and anger…
