#CoverReveal ----- Wrath of the Ancients



WRATH OF THE ANCIENTS 
by Catherine Cavendish 
Genre: Horror/Suspense

Pub Date: 10/24/2017



DESTINY IN DEATH

Egypt, 1908
Eminent archeologist Dr. Emeryk Quintillus has unearthed the burial chamber of Cleopatra. But this tomb raider’s obsession with the Queen of the Nile has nothing to do with preserving history. Stealing sacred and priceless relics, he murders his expedition crew, and flees—escaping the quake that swallows the site beneath the desert sands . . .
Vienna, 1913
Young widow Adeline Ogilvy has accepted employment at the mansion of Dr. Quintillus, transcribing the late professor’s memoirs. Within the pages of his journals, she discovers the ravings of a madman convinced he possessed the ability to reincarnate Cleopatra. Within the walls of his home, she is assailed by unexplained phenomena: strange sounds, shadowy figures, and apparitions of hieroglyphics.
Something pursued Dr. Quintillus from Egypt. Something dark, something hungry. Something tied to the fate and future of Adeline Ogilvy . . .

#Spotlight --- A Secret Lies Deep --- #Booktour










A Secret Lies Deep
By Jake Hatmacher
Genre: Psychological Romance {female transgender main character and some paranormal undertones}


SECRETS… We attempt to conceal our own but are frustrated by those concealed from us.  That is the crux of Eryn’s story as she seeks answers to the questions−the secrets−that have troubled her since her youth.  Perhaps if she wasn’t so smart these questions wouldn’t bother her, but she is.  Eryn’s new job is a further challenge to her own secret as she strives to protect it.  Not only that, but when challenged concerning her sexuality she must ultimately decide whether that secret is worth withholding forever.  It’s not that no one is aware of Eryn’s secret.  She has entrusted it to close family members and a few childhood acquaintances.  When confronted by her grandfather, unhappy with the cause of the secrecy, Eryn’s defenses and his words put a barrier between them that she feels helpless to resolve.  She desires his acceptance again.  But how will she regain it?  Perhaps if she could only find the answers to her troubling questions.  But where would she even begin?  By coincidence−or is it by divine intervention−she and her co-worker are given the task to research genealogies for a new display at their museum.  Unbeknownst to Eryn, the path to her answers begins on her flight to New York as she embarks on her new assignment.  What she experiences next is a remarkable and shocking series of events which leads to the truth she seeks, and to the discovery of who she was truly meant to be and who she was truly meant to love.


About the Author
As you already know, I am a professional writer. But I'm also a physician. I spent many years practicing, and practicing means working, as an obstetrician and gynecologist. I still maintain three state licenses but I spend my time now writing.

The fictional stories that I have written have sprung out of time spent treating patients. The stories are unique in that although they are fictional, they have much in the way of historical fact and medical fact. They also include humor, although mostly subtle and are flavored with a touch of fantasy.

I grew up in a city of near thirty-five thousand in the north-central part of Illinois. My higher education was at Loyola University of Chicago, followed by medical school at Loyola-Stritch School of Medicine. I treated patients for 25 years in Illinois before moving to Ohio, where I now reside.
Besides writing, my time is filled taking care of my home, gardening, hiking, and simply enjoying the fresh air outdoors and the beautiful plants and animals that nature provides. I am always trying to introduce new plants that are not invasive, conserve water and attract butterflies. The reason for wanting to attract butterflies has a story, but let me just say here, it mostly has to do with their variety of color and the way they appear to float on the air as they fly-they are calming.

#CoverReveal --- My Fair Lord ---




MY FAIR LORD 
by Wilma Counts
Genre: Historical Romance
Pub Date: 10/17/2017

Well-bred, well-dressed, and well-read, Henrietta, Harriet, and Hero are best friends who have bonded over good books since their schooldays. Now these cultured ladies are ready to make their own happy endings—each in her own way . . .

Lady Henrietta Parker, daughter of the Earl of Blakemoor, has turned down many a suitor for fear that the ton’s bachelors are only interested in her wealth. But despite the warnings of her dearest friends, Harriet and Hero, she can’t resist the challenge rudely posed by her stepsister: transform an ordinary London dockworker into a society gentleman suitable for the “marriage mart.” Only after a handshake seals the deal does Retta fear she may have gone too far . . .
When Jake Bolton is swept from the grime of the seaport into the elegance of Blakemoor House, he appears every inch the rough, cockney working man who is to undergo Retta’s training in etiquette, wardrobe, and elocution. But Jake himself is a master of deception—with much more at stake than a drawing room wager.
But will his clandestine mission take second place to his irresistible tutor, her intriguing proposal . . . and true love?



Before moving to Nevada in 1994, Wilma Counts taught high school English and social studies in Germany to dependents of American forces stationed there. She loved the kids, but hated meaningless paperwork. She especially enjoyed her work with Advance Placement English, Model United Nations, and student exchanges with a Russian school.
Wilma grew up in Oregon, a product of the Leave It To Beaver era. She holds degrees in education and international relations. Having traveled widely, she is keenly interested in politics and international relations. She freely admits to being a C-SPAN junkie.
A member of the Romance Writers of America, she has written two Regency novels and a novella for Zebra. Willed to Wed is slated for publication in September, '99, and My Lady Governess in February, '00. Her current projects include another Regency and a novel set in the American West. She contributes a regular column on grammar and usage to the local RWA newsletter. Besides her interest in travel and writing, Wilma is an avid reader and she loves to cook, garden, and gamble—not necessarily in that order.

#Blogtour ----> Quick Fix





Title: Quick Fix
Author: Ashley Suzanne
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 16th, 2017
Cover Design & Graphics by : Laura Hidalgo










Quick Fix by Ashley Suzanne

I had it all... a job I loved, a home I built and a husband who couldn’t keep it in his pants. After months of storing up evidence of his infidelity, I finally grew a pair and filed for divorce, ensuring I got everything. This isn’t about me being vindictive, it’s about getting my fair share. I put in much more than he ever did. 

On a night out with my best friend to celebrate the sudden loss of two hundred pounds of dead weight, I met a much younger guy, Tanner, who made me feel things my pathetic excuse of an ex-husband ever did... ever. 

I wasn’t looking for more than one night, and that’s all Tanner promised. I can tell you this, even with my lack of experience, not all men are created equal. Some just have... more. I may not be the youngest model in the showroom, but Tanner made sure to remind me that I was just as sexy as I was in my youth.

We all need something to get us through, and Tanner was my quick fix.

















          Before I know it, Tanner’s standing and wrapping my legs around his waist. He doesn’t move very far before setting me back on my feet. 

         “Turn around,” he commands. I do as he says—placing my back to his front. I expect him to push against me, but all I feel is the cool air between us, driving me crazy. Tanner takes foreplay to a whole new level—we’re quickly approaching fiveplay.









Ashley Suzanne, International Bestselling Author, mother of two, wife to one and creator of imaginary worlds, sexy characters and true love.  A resident of Metro Detroit, Ashley never leaves her bedroom and reads as much as she writes.
