Cover Reveal: The Magic of Stars by Jackie Ladbury

 

Sapphire Montrose always felt like a loser in the struggle of life, but when she becomes the airline manager of a run-down airline she starts to believe she is a winner – until she unwittingly propositions her new boss and all her hard work is undone.

In a moment of recklessness air stewardess, Sapphire Montrose throws caution and her dress to the wind by propositioning a handsome stranger in a hotel in Florence, only to find herself waking up alone and embarrassed in her hotel room.

Unfortunately for Sapphire, it turns out that her new boss, Marco Cavarelli, is the man she failed to seduce and she is now fighting for her job and her self-respect when he tells her there is no place in his revamped airline for an alcoholic woman with lascivious tendencies. To make matters worse she is increasingly attracted to him and he seems to be giving out the same vibes. Or is he simply testing her? One wrong move could be the end of her career. But what if he really is offering love – and is he worth the risk?

About the Author

Jackie Ladbury was desperate to become a journalist when she left school but was ousted within minutes on the day of the exam at her local rag because she’d forgotten to bring a pen.

Short and sharp lesson learned.

Her budding writing career was not on hold for long, though, as Jackie found herself scribbling love stories of pilots and ‘hosties’ while she flew in aeroplanes of various shapes and sizes as a flight attendant herself.

Fast forward a good few years and, after being short-listed in a couple of prestigious romantic writing competitions, Jackie decided it was time to discard her stilettos, say goodbye to the skies and concentrate on writing romantic novels, where the only given is a guaranteed ‘happy ever after.’

x
VENGEANCE IS A CAGE
FORGIVENESS IS FREEDOM
x
In their greed to possess the deadly Halahala, the devas and the asuras have employed every dirty trick against Vikramaditya and his Council of Nine. But the humans are still standing, bloodied but unbowed.
When the wily Shukracharya discovers the secret to breaking the Council’s strength and unity, he forges an unlikely alliance with his arch-enemy, Indra, to set a deceitful plan in motion.
As cracks emerge between the councilors and their king, ghosts from the past threaten to ruin Vikramaditya and Kalidasa’s friendship, signaling the beginning of an eclipse that will cast a long shadow over all that Vikramaditya holds dear. And into this shadow steps Indra, bearing an old grudge — and a devastating new weapon.
How much longer before the Guardians of the Halahala finally fall apart?

Cover Reveal: Trusting You by H. D’Agostino

 

*** Can be read as a STANDALONE. ***

I had a plan… Go to college, get good grades, start fresh. I knew I’d have a clean slate, and I could be anyone. I was right on track until I spent the summer with my roommate, Emma.
Aaron Sutter was everything I told myself to stay away from… a player, smooth talker, and sexy as hell. He was not part of the plan. Girls fought for just a minute of his attention, and would pretty much do anything to get it. I swore I would never be one of them, but Aaron and my heart had other plans.
It’s funny how the heart works. It doesn’t see the pain coming its way. It doesn’t understand that one moment could change everything. One crack could destroy the very foundation that it’s balancing on. Aaron was that crack for me. He pushed inside, wrapping himself around my soul and never letting go. I wanted to let him in, but was he ready for the past I worked so hard to escape from?
Trusting you is the second book in The Sutter Family series.

*** This book is intended for adult readers. It contains profanity and graphic sexual situations. ***

Excerpt


Prologue
I knew the moment I heard the words slip from the man in uniform that my world would be turned upside down. Shattered. Everything ended that dreadful day, including my will to live. 
***
I throw myself over the casket after the preacher spoke words of peace and light. I grip the hard wood, bawling, refusing to let them sink this box to the bottom of that hole. No one attempts to stop me. They all watch in sorrow as I yell, asking God why. 
I finally feel my father and Josh’s father pull me away. They hand me the folded flag—the tainted reminder of all that is left of him. 
I stand in shock as they lower his body and cover him in dirt. I stare numbly at the mound of earth that now separates us. I will never see him again. I will never hear him again. Everything is destroyed. 
“We’ll take you home,” my mother says, but I shake my head. “Bri, it would be best if you left. Let’s eat something.” 
Turning to her, eyes void of emotion, I say, “Take me home and leave me there. I want to be alone.” 
In the silence of the car, they respect my wishes. I hold on to that flag as if it were Josh I was holding. 
“I want to be alone,” I tell them as they pull into the driveway before they choose to come inside with me. 
“But—”
“No, mom. Not today.” I get out of the car; the black of my dress feels heavy as I drag with me the darkness this day has brought. It’s real. As if I would somehow wake up and have dreamt the visit the officer and chaplain made not too long ago. 
As the door closes behind me, I lean against it—white contrasting to my black— and stare at this home. I calmly put the flag down on the console table. I walk a few steps in, grab the lamp and strike it onto the floor. I sweep my arms across the small table in the living room, causing everything on it to fall and break. The metal dish clings against the tile. 
“Ahhh!” My throat hurts from the exertion. I yell again and again until I’m sore. I shatter the vase with flowers my friends sent me. Water pours from the broken glass as the roses attempt to soak up the last bit. I walk to them and stomp them with my heel. They can’t live if he’s dead. 
I can’t live if he’s dead. I can’t live. I can’t. 
I fall onto my knees, the tears a common emotion for me, and look up at the heavens. “I only have one question, God; why’d you bring him to me to steal him away?” 
With that, I curl into my side and lose myself.

Cover Reveal: Risking It All
by Joyce d’Mot
 
Genre: Romance
 
 
The last three years of Kenya Davis’s love life were rife with false starts and heartaches in her pursuit to get back her ex-boyfriend, Dave. The one bright spot she clung to was her job as a health scientist with CDC. When she received a promotion that placed her in the field, Kenya saw it as the distraction she desperately needed.
 
Simon Washington lived a charmed life before his world came crashing down around him. One fateful night full of confusion and heartache, he found himself accused of domestic violence and the attempted murder of a police officer. The once – affluent businessman was now on the run from the law, leaving behind his wife, a thriving business, and his social status.
 
Kenya’s new position took her under the interstate bridge to the homeless, but among the poor and hungry, she discovered Simon. Their worlds collided in an unexpected mash-up of uncertainty and desire. 
 
Kenya wanted to comfort him, despite the warning bells going off in her head. Was he the dangerous criminal the news described him as or the same guy she knew from college? Should she trust the man who fell into her world and crowded everything else out?
 
Simon felt drawn to the courageous, kindhearted spirit who refused to protect herself from his drama and accept that her trust in him put her in danger. He had to push her away, but the sweetness of her presence was hard to give up when he needed it so much.
 
Risking It All follows Kenya and Simon as they walk through a minefield of emotions and close calls to find and maintain their freedom and maybe even love – with or without each other.

Excerpt:

Okay, so cats like her and obey her commands. Oh god, please tell me more weirdness didn’t just walk into my life. “So, how do you know Claire?” I asked hopefully, silently praying for a mundane answer like High School, the gym, or prison.

“I don’t,” She said confidently.

It was only just now that I got a good look at her and a wave of panic swept through me. She was tall, nearly a foot taller than me. I’d picked up on that when she was at the door, but maybe it was the sun in my eyes or the fact that I wasn’t fully awake yet, but I hadn’t pieced together the rest of it. I would have placed her in her early forties, a couple of years older than Claire maybe, but she looked as if she had been assembled in a factory. Something was decidedly not human about her, and it was unsettling that I couldn’t pinpoint what it was. She had thick, straight hair that was the kind of blonde you only seemed to see in eighties movies. Her eyes were a deep sapphire, and aside from an amount of gold that would have bordered on excess on anyone else, I noticed something else. White shoes, a white pleated linen skirt, a white blouse.

Oh…no. “Did Roger send you because I wouldn’t accept his offer?” I asked, not breaking eye contact.

She raised an eyebrow at that as the beginnings of a grin touched the edge of her lips. “No one ever sends me anywhere,” She said bemusedly.

I wasn’t ready for a fight, especially not when some hapless customer could wander in any second now. And something about her felt decidedly not human, what if she was Fae like Bres? A fight with one of the Fae could get ugly in a hurry for everyone around. Mostly for myself.

“Kind of stupid for one Gardener to come alone,” I said shaking the blister shield out of my wrist. I was trying to sound confident, but I was terror-stricken by the unknown elements here, and it was all I could do to bluff. “It didn’t go so well for the last one who came at me alone.”

The woman couldn’t help herself as she let out a small laugh. “You fashion yourself a sorcerer?” She asked, and with a dismissive wave of her hand, my shield was gone. Just gone! “Child, sorcery is but one of my domains, and you are no more a sorcerer than any of those pretenders you are so quick to associate me with. The people of this realm wield magic that is not their own.”

I stiffened as she spoke. “Okay then,” I said slowly. “If you’re not a Gardener, then what are you.”

“Goddess.”

“Well, December is free coffee for deities month, so lucky you,” I said, trying to force a laugh.

“Is it really?” She asked. “Because I would love to try the house blend.”

“It is now,” I said, moving to make her a cup. Whoever she was, she was severely out of my league, and the best thing I could do was to keep her talking.

“Please make yourself a cup as well and join me, we have business to discuss.”

“Cream or sugar?” I asked pouring the cups. She indicated a quick no as I brought them over. “So, shouldn’t I know who I’m doing business with?”

“Indeed. I am Freyja,” She replied, sipping her coffee. “And this is quite the beverage you’ve made.”

“Thanks, I’ve been practicing,” I said taking a sip of my own.

“You don’t believe me, do you?” Freyja asked, warmly somehow. Not disappointed, or angry or defensive. “Even with everything you’ve seen and done?”

“No offense, but I’ve met a lot of magic users lately, and it’s not like someone wouldn’t just claim to be a god if they wanted to look bigger than they are. You’re definitely stronger than me, but that doesn’t mean I have to believe whatever you say at face value. I met a guy named Bres earlier this year, and I’m pretty sure he wasn’t the Demon King.”

Freyja chuckled at that. “Oh, the things I could tell you about Bres,” She said taking a sip. “Did you know that historians mistranslated, and he’s actually the Lemon King?”

“That doesn’t make any sense,” I snapped back. “Citrus trees aren’t native to- Oh damn it.”
