Drachen -brendanphotoAbout the author:

Brendan le Grange was born and educated in South Africa, though he now lives between Manila and Hong Kong with his beautiful wife and daughter.

As a business consultant, he has travelled to forty countries and lived in three. And it is reading binges to break up these transits - with the likes of Clive Cussler and Jack du Brul - that inspired the writer to emerge, bringing to life the cities, characters, and history he encountered.

Le Grange's debut action thriller, Drachen, is a wild chase through North Europe along the Baltic coast. Based on a reimagined history of the medieval Hanseatic League, a young marine archaeologist discovers evidence of a treasure so valuable, it will test every allegiance.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00001]Wedding planner Tyler Warren left heartbreak behind when she ran away from her small Southern hometown and started a new life in a big city. Years later, she wants to believe in the fairy-tale endings her job promotes, but the clients she meets day after day seem to be more “Crazily Ever After” than “Happily Ever After.”

Meanwhile, her own attempts at romance play out as bizarre comedies rather than love stories, and she’s starting to think Prince Charming either fell off his horse or got eaten by a dragon. When unresolved issues from Tyler’s past complicate things even further, she discovers she may yet have some things to figure out before she can find her own happy ending.

This delightful first book in the Tales Behind the Veils series chronicles Tyler’s wacky misadventures, both personal and professional.

#BookReview 'The Trouble With Snowmen' by Dorlana Vann

trouble with snowmen tour banner

The Trouble with Snowmen by Dorlana VannSnowmen drift into your life like they were sent from above. The relationship is great, rolls right along, and builds. Everything seems perfect … until a little heat is introduced. Then they melt, leaving only their hat, their scarf, something to remind their victims of what they’d lost.

Urban cowgirl Haley Monroe is told that the fabulously hot guy who just dumped her was a snowman. Her friend Maximilian convinces her that the only way she’ll ever stop being played by snowmen is to become one. It takes a lot of drinks to work up the nerve, but Haley gets her sexy on and goes on the prowl.

Famous horror author Larry White drops everything to attend a midnight séance at Maximilian’s apartment where he meets Haley. By the way she’s dressed—and just propositioned him—he assumes she’s a hooker. Larry can’t pass up the chance to get inside her head, especially since prostitution is the character’s occupation in his next book.

After spending the weekend together, unexpected sparks surprise both Haley and Larry. The trouble is Haley is dead-set on snowmanning the unkempt “starving artist” she met at the séance, and Larry doesn’t think he could have a real relationship with a woman with a past, so they go their separate ways.

The real fun begins when they meet again and find out neither one of them were who they thought they were. Can they reignite the flame? Or will they have a snowman’s chance in hell?

**Sue's Review**

I have to date not read any books by Dorlana Vann - BUT, I can guarantee that I will be looking for books of hers to read in the future!!!

Snowmen is a different type book for me to read but OMG it was amazing!!! The book moves quickly and keeps you on the edge of your seat, wondering what is going to happen next. I love the way that the author introduces characters throughout the book. Haley Monroe (the main character) has learned the definition of SNOWMEN the hard way. But - like so many females - is oblivious as to who they continue to reel women in with their tactics!!! I don't write spoilers - so I can't tell you much more about the adventures that Haley goes through in the book. BUT - believe me, once you start reading, you will be so entwined in the story that you will not want to stop until you finish the book!!!

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

seal the deal blast banner

SEAL the Deal_FINALShe needs his protection almost as much as she needs his heart...

Rebecca Mayes has already endured more than her fair share of tragedy. After her husband was killed in a horrific car crash, she'd do anything to shield herself from more heartache. A highly sought after attorney, Rebecca's success in the courtroom has not come without costs. The disgruntled ex-husband of a client is seeking revenge on the one he blames for his troubles--and his sights are set on Rebecca. While she remains blissfully unaware, he's stalking her, and getting closer every day.

Navy SEAL Patrick "Ice" Foster vowed to never be in a relationship again after watching his ex-wife slowly die of cancer. That type of anguish was more than he could handle in one lifetime, and there's no way anyone can change his mind.

Despite their determination never to fall in love again, Rebecca and Patrick can't deny the connection between them. But when danger lurks around every corner, she knows there's only one man she can trust to protect both her and her daughter. But who will protect her from a broken heart?

#BookReview 'e-Murderer' by Joan C. Curtis

emurderer tour banner

e-Murderer copy


On this anything but typical Monday morning Jenna Scali, who works part-time for a shrink, opens an email that depicts the brutal death of a young girl. On that same day the police uncover a dead coed two blocks from Jenna’s house. The e-murderer’s description creepily echos the death described in the newspapers.

When Jenna receives other emails, she takes what she knows to the police and thus begins her journey in the path of the e-murderer. Her curious nature impels her from e-messages to dead coeds to a ring of prostitutes. With the help of her quirky friends, Jenna learns that she’s more than a conduit for the killer. She’s his target. New secrets unfold, and finally her love life takes a tumble when the true killer emerges.

THE E-MURDERER is a race to find a psychotic killer before he kills again.

This new mystery series with a young female sleuth promises to keep you glued to your seat until the last page.

**Antoinette's review**

Murder mysteries are always a fun read. The suspense is awesome. Jen works for a therapist and begins to receive strange emails. This person speaks of death and killing and how that makes him feel. The detail is quite disturbing to her. She assumes it's a patient trying to get attention... But things get much worse. She discovers the murders are really happening. She decides to try to figure out if in fact the connections there. There's so many things she does that are crazy. The risks she takes. This person begins to leave her notes at her home, using her name... You begin to wonder who in her life could be doing this. Everyone is a suspect. Intriguing story and very well written details.

I was given this book for my honest review and now you have it.

#BookReview 'Sapphire Beautiful' by Ren Monterrey

sapphire beautiful tour banner

Sapphire BeautifulWe both joined The Club and made an arrangement. I got the money to pay my mortgage and he got access to my body, whenever and however he wanted it...

SAPPHIRE BEAUTIFUL, a new full-length, stand-alone novel in Ren Monterrey's THE CLUB series.

I never imagined that I'd be starting my fifth year as a faculty member in the Medieval Studies department as a thirty-two-year-old widow. I'm sure to be the butt of every joke around campus as the collateral damage of a sex scandal that made national headlines. And my husband left me completely broke after he killed himself.

I don't want to lose my house and all the money I invested in it so I make an arrangement through The Club. I'll get what I to get out of the financial ruins my dead husband left me in. And Dante McNally will get what he wants...access to my body...whenever and however he wants it...

There's only one catch. Dante is one of our new graduate students and the recipient of a prestigious research fellowship funded by his billionaire father. And this is the year I'm supposed to be applying for tenure.

Antoinette's Review:

I am so happy I read this book. I'm not a big romance book reader. But this story just was amazing. 

Mary is a widowed teacher of a man who cheated with students and then killed himself. But before he ended himself, he cleaned out their bank accounts and didn't pay bills for months. So here she is, in her dream home with threats of it being taken away. By cab ce she over hears about an exclusive club that's an escort business of sorts. She figures she has nothing to lose. She's a 32 year old attractive woman... What she signs up for is so much more than she could ever imagine... 

There is some graphic sex scenes... FYI but the story is excellent and even the sex scenes are pretty mild compared to some other. 

I was given this book for my honest review. And now you have it.
