New Release Spotlight: “Because of You,” Riveting Second Hand Romance By Allie Boniface

img_4048

Today I’m happy to feature a new book from my friend Allie Boniface. I met Allie when I was an aspiring author and she’d published her first book. She shared a lot of hard-won wisdom with me and served as a beta reader when I needed guidance. Now she’s a USA Today Bestselling Author. It’s been a thrill to watch her success. Here’s her new book, a romance.

 

Because of YouAbout the Book

Ten years ago, Piper Townsend fell to her death from the top of a fraternity house, and no one on Drake Isle has ever been the same. Blake Carter’s fraternity was scandalized. Misterion College closed down altogether. And Blake’s girlfriend, Emerson Doyle, fled the island after her best friend died and never looked behind her.

Now they’re back.

Blake’s the CEO of a multi-million dollar tech firm looking to relocate to the island. Emerson owns a yoga studio in the building he wants to buy. They haven’t spoken in ten years. They’re on opposite sides of the bargaining table.

But old flames die hard.

And the more Blake and Emerson fight both the past and each other, the more they realize that coming to terms with tragedy is their only chance of finding love again…

What reviewers are saying

“The chemistry between Emerson and Blake blazes throughout the book.”

“Wow, what a great start for this new series by this very talented author…This is a story that is at times heartbreaking and at others heartwarming.”

“I’ll start by saying I read this novel in one day. One day!…The relationship was so tangible to me, the shared history, all that was left unsaid, I just couldn’t stop reading. I just needed to unravel everything!”

“This was a moving story – so many emotions involved.”

new release spotlight

This week’s new release is written by my AlzAuthors colleague Laurie Lewis. Laurie is a prolific author, giving us romance, women’s, historical, and general fiction. Her  award-winning novel The Dragons of Alsace Farm is a featured AlzAuthors book.

img_4032About Laurie’s New Book

Tallie Brown’s life has never made sense. Raised in isolation by her mother, Julia, Tallie was dragged suddenly and without explanation from one third-world outpost to another until life normalized seven years ago when Julia took a position on a mountaintop in the Pacific northwest. But when Julia unexpectedly dies, Tallie uncovers clues suggesting that Julia had a secret life.

Journalistic phenom Jackson James is still recovering from the devastating mistake that flatlined his promising career. Now he’s paying the price, working as the editor of a syrupy community rag in a posh D.C. suburb. But when the very man who destroyed him drops a tantalizing lead about a potential D.C. scandal, the reporter sees his chance for redemption and sets off to chase the story.

Jackson’s investigation leads him to Cutler’s Ridge, a dying Virginia coal town, and directly into the path of the mysterious and beautiful Tallie. As these two mistrustful loners follow their leads, their stories begin to intertwine until they reach an alarming conclusion – something terrible happened in Cutler’s Ridge. As they doggedly pursue the story, the town’s cold reception spirals into threats and danger, proving that there are those who will stop at nothing to keep the past hidden forever –because secrets never die.

New Release Spotlight: “Electricity,” A Paranormal Romance from Claire Gem

new release spotlight

This week’s new release is brought to us by Claire Gem, who’s written some terrific  paranormal romances. I personally know Claire as she grew up in my town and attends the Local Authors Showcase I coordinate each year at Middletown Thrall Library.  This looks like another enthralling read.

img_3925About the Book

She’s an electrician starting over with her son. New job. New town. New life.

He’s a coworker who’s interested in more than her ability to run conduit.

The building they’re rewiring was once an insane asylum…but it appears some of the patients never left.

Mercedes Donohue pulled up roots in Atlanta when her marriage imploded. She’s come back to New England, to the place where she was born. Mercy’s focus is to stabilize her teenage son’s life—he took the breakup pretty hard—and to establish her place, gain the respect of Progressive Electrical’s team.

She never expected so many sparks to fly so soon, both on the job and after hours.

Daniel Gallagher has been alone since his fiancé’s death. He’ll never feel that way about any woman again, and certainly won’t try with another independent, strong-willed one. Then Mercy short-circuits his plans.

Although the asylum closed its doors over thirty-five years ago, Mercy & Daniel quickly realize the abandoned building is very haunted.

If you like a heart-melting romance laced with healthy dose of supernatural thrills and chills, you’ll love Electricity. Purchase now!

Great Summer Reads Book Tour! “Daisies in the Driveway” by Lauraine Henderson

Banner June 3_16

Book Description

Allison Lockwood and Gavin Hunt have been offered the chance to take over the Lazy Daisy Inn and Campground so their respective grandparents, the current owners, can retire and marry. It seems all too easy for Ally and Gavin to prove themselves during the six-month probationary period until they’re fighting disasters at the campground and failing at over-optimistic baking expectations.

As Ally and Gavin slowly explore their growing attraction, they help each other fight fires, endure raging storms, and share a few passionate kisses. But there’s more than fires to fight when Ally’s grandfather disapproves of their budding romance and Ally is convinced Gavin has a girlfriend in the wings…a girlfriend expecting his baby!

Ride along as the two unlikely innkeepers figure out how they fit in their new life and learn the lesson taught by the Daisies in the Driveway.
