New Release on May 1 - Hot and Hotter by Daryl Devore - 2 lusciously hot romances bundle together for your reading enjoyment. #hot #romance #bookbundle

Some like it hot… others like it HOTTER!  Daryl Devoré has done it again, pairing two of her smoking hot romances into one smouldering book.

What could be simpler than a routine plane trip from Toronto, Canada to Caracas, Venezuela for a rookie flight attendant and a sexy R.C.M.P. officer?

But Fate had other intentions.

After leaving a disastrous marriage, Paix Allcot begins a new career as a flight attendant. First time in her dream job, she is no longer a trainee and the passengers in economy class are under her care. Especially the handsome passenger seated in 36C.

Guy Lapierre, undercover officer, is following a vicious human-trafficker. He has little time for relationships. Too many innocent lives are at stake. Stranded on a tropical island, he is forced to work with Paix to survive until he makes a relationship destroying discovery.

Can a pink bra and a hot night on the side of a volcano save the relationship and their lives?

 

What's a woman to do when a voice follows her home and makes mad, passionate love to her?

Corporate businesswoman, Capricious Gray, is dragged to a sex toy convention by her best friend. After a mysterious disembodied voice helps her with her purchases, it follows her home. Passion ensues, leaving Capri torn between lust for her fantasy lover and the desperate need for reality in her life.

Thall, son of one of the Fates, harbours the irrepressible need to be with the woman he's desired from afar for years. In order to make her his, once and for all, he must help Capri get past her fears, including the fear of what he represents - a fantasy.

Can fantasy become a reality for these two lovers?

A photo of a meandering formation on Mars #Mars #SpectacularSpace


 

A sinuous ridge is a thin and meandering formation that gives the appearance of a stream channel, but stays raised above the surface rather than incised into it. It is believed that these ridges were once stream channels that cut down into the surface. Flowing water can have a number of effects on a channel bed, such as sorting grains and depositing rocks, all while removing loose material. The water can also carry a number of dissolved minerals that become deposited and cement the remaining grains together. The result is a stream bed that has become "armored." Once the stream stops flowing and dries up, this armored layer can resist future erosion. Over the millions of years that follow, forces such as wind can gradually remove the original material of the surrounding terrain, but the stream bed can remain. Examining the characteristics of the ridge can reveal clues about the amount of water and the flow speed that existed long ago. https://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA24470

Today I’m sharing an excerpt from Mary Morgan’s Magnar

 

MAGNAR

(The Wolves of Clan Sutherland, Book 1)

By Mary Morgan

https://www.marymorganauther.com/blog

 

Tagline: The Wolf surrenders to no one.

 Blurb:

Known as the Barbarian, Magnar MacAlpin is a fierce ruler for those under his command. As leader of the Wolves of Clan Sutherland, his loyalty and obedience lies with Scotland. However, the king’s last demand is not something Magnar will tolerate.

 After Elspeth Gunn’s brother the Chieftain of Castle Steinn is murdered, she flees with her nephew, and finds safety amongst a band of men who are rumored to be part wolf. When the king forces her to wed a heathen Northman, she fears losing her heart and soul not only to the man, but the beast as well.

 

In order to restore peace to a shattered clan, Magnar and Elspeth travel a treacherous path that challenges their beliefs. When evil seeks to destroy ancient traditions, will Magnar be compelled to restrain his wolf or allow him free to protect those he loves?

Excerpt

Instantly, he took fiery possession of her mouth, devouring its softness. The kiss shattered his senses and tossed him into a stormy sea of pleasure. Her lips were warm and moist, and when she moaned, Magnar thrust his tongue into the velvet warmth of her mouth. Unable to be gentle, his kiss became burning with need. Especially when Elspeth wrapped her arms around his neck, urging him onward.

The roar of desire to strip the material from her body and feast on her honeyed rose-scented skin sent him spiraling.

But he fell from the sky. Only birds and angels can fly. Medieval fantasy romance - The Last Dragon on Weekend Writing Warriors #WeWrWa #8Sunday #medieval #fantasy #romance


 

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors! Where writers share an 8- 10 sentence snippet of their writing on Sunday.  Visit other participants on the list and read and comment on their 8sunday posts.

Spread the word. Twitter hashtag #8sunday.

This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon

Scene Set – Yes, the lump that turned out to be a man – lived.

 

The abbot stepped forward and smiled. “Ye've discovered him.”

Derry lowered her gaze. “Aye, Father. Only moments ago. How did ye know he was here?”

The corpulent wool merchant, Meliboeus Rith, barged his way through the crowd. “The night watchman saw him fall from the sky in the early morning light.”

“He thought he was an angel.” The blacksmith's son, Pariset, peeked out from behind his father. Frowning, the blacksmith pushed the boy away.

A wee bit more

“Is he?” The man who spoke first turned to face the abbot.

Father Jacobus knelt next to the stranger. The sunlight glistened off his tonsure. “I believe him to be mortal.”

“But he fell from the sky. Only birds and angels can fly.” Meliboeus swaggered towards the man and tapped him with his foot.

“And dragons.” Pariset scooted out of the way of his father's slap.

What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.

A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.

Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his fathers kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child - dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.

Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.

Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.

Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?

The power of memories. Everything, Somewhere - David Kummer's Contemporary YA Fiction #contemporaary #YA #Fiction

 


Everything, Somewhere
by David Kummer
Genre: Contemporary YA Fiction



The power of memories.

Little Rush is a sleepy town on the Ohio River. Bruce Michaels is a renowned Hollywood actor. The two should never cross paths, yet one summer everything changes. The actor, haunted by demons, chasing a ghost. The town, unaware. Until the two collide.

Hudson, Willow, and Mason are high school seniors with very different upbringings, but all on the verge of adulthood. As the sun sets on their final summer, questions abound. Will they ever leave the town? Is there a future here? As their plans waver, time is running out.

The struggle of mental illness.

As he loses his friends and sinks deeper into depression, Hudson forms an unlikely bond with the actor, Bruce Michaels. But the old man is a ticking time bomb. As Hudson relies on him more, the danger to them both grows.

When dark secrets are revealed, Hudson must confront the truth about his idol and himself. Bruce Michaels isn’t who he seems. Hudson is nearly lost. And in the end, they may be more similar than different.

The search for meaning.

Different paths, converging in a web of alcohol, fights, and romance. Worlds collide one summer in Anywhere, USA. The question is who will make it through.
