RELEASE BLITZ: The Courtesan and Mr. Hyde by Catherine Stein #historicalromance #Steampunk @catsteinbooks @RABTBookTours

Date Published: August 16, 2022

Sometimes the path to true love is a walk on the wicked side.

Dr. Henry Jekyll has—almost—always lived by the rules. Hoping
to improve society by separating a person’s good and evil halves, Hal
tests an experimental potion on himself. When the drug lowers his usual
inhibitions, Hal crashes a high-class party, downs a strong drink, and
propositions a sophisticated courtesan. All in the name of science, of
course.

Calliope Finch needs only six more months as a glamorous mistress to earn
enough to open the library of her dreams. So when Callie meets the awkward,
bookish party crasher calling himself Mr. Hyde, she knows nothing can come
of it. Not when his curious charm and unfailing honesty come at the expense
of his bank account. All she can spare him is a kiss—and maybe one
night.

Spurred on by their unwavering attraction, Hal and Callie soon become
friends and scientific collaborators. But Callie’s list of potential
protectors is dwindling, Hal’s potion might not be the solution he
hopes, and a mysterious enemy is making mischief at every turn. With their
goals slipping ever further from reach, Hal and Callie must put their minds
and hearts to the test. Even if it means freeing sides of themselves
they’ve long kept hidden.

 

Excerpt

She needed to get back to work. Nothing could come of wasting her time
flirting with this mysterious party-crasher. No matter how intriguing he
was.

“It is quite the extravagant affair,” the man said. His gaze
fixed on Callie, sweeping up and down her body. “I’m glad I
came. Mr. Ackner’s stoves may be second-rate, but his guests certainly
are not.” Again, his face twitched a bit. Callie had the impression he
wasn’t accustomed to speaking so boldly. Perhaps the alcohol had
loosened his tongue.

She tried to quash her curiosity. It was time to move on. She glanced
around, seeking potential wealthy lovers. That bastard Hinsberg caught her
eye and gave her a wink. Callie quickly turned her gaze away. She could
overlook the fact that he was twice her age, but he was cold and cruel, and
that was entirely unacceptable.

She took hold of the party-crasher’s arm and steered him toward the
exit, telling Hinsberg without words she was otherwise occupied. The young
man flinched at her touch but didn’t try to pull away, allowing her to
lead him out into the hall.

“Are we headed to a private chamber for amorous purposes?” he
asked, a hopeful note in his voice. He thrust a hand into a pocket. “I
brought coins. How much do your services cost?”

Callie shook her head, trying not to laugh at his bizarre naivety.
“More than you have.”

“Oh.” His shoulders slumped.

Callie tossed back the remainder of her champagne and set the empty glass
on a decorative table in the middle of the corridor. Ackner could pay for
new furniture if it left rings. Her companion looked down at his own
half-finished drink, then shrugged and discarded it.

“Perhaps a small subset of your services?” he offered. “I
have…” He made a quick check. “Two dollars and
forty-seven cents.”

BOOK TOUR: Calla’s Candy (The Flowers of Avenel) by Karen Tjebben #contemporaryromance @RABTBookTours @KTjebbenAuthor #RABTBookTours

The Flowers of Avenel  Book 5

Contemporary Romance

Date Published: 05-31-2022

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Sugar flows through Calla Taylor’s veins, so owning her own candy
shop is her dream come true. She has independence and the chance to surround
herself with her passion… candy. But life in Avenel, a small island
town, has its challenges. The summer’s hurricane season hit her hard,
and now that winter has begun, she’s not sure Calla’s Candy can
hold out until the warmer temperatures lure tourists back to the
beaches.

Ash Singh has it all: good looks, a charming personality, and a pile of
money that just continues to grow. He also has a broken heart. Because of
the hellish way his last relationship ended, he wasn’t sure he could
ever love again. But meeting Calla changed everything. It started small.
When she smiled, the jagged edges of his heart found their match and sealed
together. Her laugh revived a pulse that sent need and desire through his
soul. But when he held her in his arms as they danced, he felt something he
hadn’t felt in a long time. Hope.

But one thoughtless act cuts Calla to the core and threatens the hope that
took root in Ash’s soul. He sets out to not only save his relationship
with Calla, but he vows to save Calla’s Candy too.

 

Excerpt

Excited jitters ran through Calla as she sat next to the gorgeous man she’d instantly believed to be out of her league. She wasn’t good at flirting. She didn’t bar hop in hopes of finding a man. And just a few bad dates arranged on the internet had cured her of her willingness to give the web a try.

In her heart, she knew that she wasn’t the type of woman that a man of his looks went for, but it would be fun to pretend they had chemistry while at the wedding reception.

Ashwin twisted his torso so he could look directly at the beauty. He rested one arm on the back of his chair and leaned towards her. He said, “If you don’t mind me saying, you make that dress look amazing.” Once the words were out, he knew they sounded cheesy, but her beauty and that dress had his brain spinning. The lack of sleep mixed with the whiskey he’d already consumed didn’t help either.

Calla blushed, embarrassed by the praise, and a little shocked. She’d been nervous about wearing such a glamorous dress to the wedding since she didn’t want to be overdressed, but when she spotted this dress at the Goodwill on the mainland, she knew she had to have it. She’d paid less for this Oscar worthy dress than a t-shirt at Target.

She loved everything about the dress. The soft velvet fabric, the deep burgundy color felt regal, and the miraculous truth that despite the dress fitting her like a glove, she didn’t feel pudgy in it. Somehow, the dress minimized her love handles. Her working theory on that miracle was that the dress maximized her ample breasts which then drew attention away from her muffin top. In this dress, no one would even notice her waistline.

But in this dress, she felt beautiful. Not only beautiful, but worthy of thinking of herself as beautiful. She knew that didn’t make sense. A dress or her appearance didn’t make her worthy of thinking positively about herself, but she couldn’t deny that she felt amazing.

Wrapped in the rich fabric, it was almost like she’d shed the chrysalis of modesty and accepted herself for the gorgeous butterfly that she is. She wanted to be looked at… admired… cherished. And her heart raced a little faster when the hunger in his eyes lapped over her.

Was this what if felt like to irresistible?

“Thank you,” she replied. God, she could feel herself getting turned on. She hadn’t felt that fluttering of lust in her core for too long. His confidence and self-assuredness touched her primal needs. And with his looks, even the married women were staring at him.

Her breathing hitched and she willed herself under control. “You look quite dapper yourself, Mr. Sing.”

He ran a hand down the lapel of his suit jacket. “This old thing,” he teased with a confident wink. He was used to dressing to perfection. His parents had instilled in him the belief that first impressions mattered, and that people did judge a book by its cover. That was just the way the world worked. He’d been skilled in the ways to impress and wow the people that he met.

Calla bit the inside of her lip. She didn’t want to say anything stupid. This gorgeous man turned her thoughts to mush. She wanted to run her fingers through his black hair. She couldn’t decide if his hair was wavy or curly. But his eyes stole the show. Those brown eyes had hints of a lighter color swirling in them. Was it blue or green? She couldn’t say for sure, but his eyelashes worked overtime summoning her attention. They were the kind of eyelashes that women paid good money for.

His kissable full lips demanded their share of attention too. Her stomach fluttered at the thought of his lips pressing against hers. God, just the thought gave her goose bumps. Their fullness gave her the impression of strength and boldness. Would they feel like an intimate caress as they traveled over her body?

“You can call me Ash. May I call you Calla?” he replied. “That’s a beautiful name.”

“Yes, and thank you.” The deep tones of his words resonated over her and awoke the butterflies within her. She dug her nail into the skin around her thumbnail, hoping the discomfort would settle her attention on something other than how amazingly hot he was and how nervous

that made her.

He cleared his throat and continued, “Calla… How did you end up named after a flower?”

She gave him a coy smile with a raised brow. “I’m impressed that you know that.” Most men had no clue that Calla was a type of lily. “That’s a funny story. I’m lucky I didn’t end up being named Bird of Paradise,” she chuckled.

He liked the sound of her giggle, friendly and sweet, pleasing to his ears. “Then please tell me.” He leaned closer, “And by the way, you could totally pull off Paradise for a name.”

She laughed, thankful that her name wasn’t Paradise. Middle school and high school had been bad enough. With a name like Paradise, her life would have been hell.

RELEASE BLITZ: The War Girls by Julie Rowe #HistoricalFiction #WWI @JulieRoweAuthor @BookBuzznet @RABTBookTours

Historical Fiction, WW1

Date Published: June 28, 2022

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

During the Great War, in a German-occupied Red Cross hospital in Brussels,
Belgium, there are three British nurses who will risk everything to save the
lives of those in their care. These are the stories of The War Girls.

Saving the Rifleman – British Red Cross nurse Maria Hunt lives in daily
fear that the German soldiers who regularly inspect her hospital will
uncover her secret: she helps wounded British soldiers escape German
hands.

Enticing the Spymaster – Judith Goddard is hiding in plain sight. A dual
citizen with family ties to Belgian royalty and the British military, she
works as a Red Cross nurse in a German hospital, learning what she can, ever
fearful her true allegiance will be discovered.

Aiding the Enemy – Rose Culver is in grave danger. For months the Red Cross
hospital head nurse has been aiding Allied soldiers caught behind enemy
lines, helping them flee into neutral Netherlands. It’s only a matter of
time until she’s caught.

The War Girls is composed of three previously published novellas. This is
the first time they have been published in one volume.

Excerpt

Chapter One

Brussels, Belgium

November, 1914

“Maria.”

Alarm rippled across Maria’s nerves, jerking her attention from the
supply record book she was writing in.

Her teacher, mentor, and matron of the hospital on Rue de la Culture stood
at the window, staring out at the street, her back straight and stiff.

“Rose?” Maria took a step toward her, but Rose’s voice
stopped her before she could take another.

“Please take an inventory of the bandages in the closet on the second
floor.” Her words were spoken with a deliberateness that should have
been reassuring. It wasn’t. The other woman held herself too still,
too rigid. “We’re about to have another friendly
visit.”

“Germans?” Maria whispered, dread tightening its coils until
she could barely breathe. “Again?”

Regular soldiers didn’t make her too uncomfortable; they appreciated
the nurses who looked after their wounded countrymen, and they knew they
could end up at this hospital and in her care. But the officers were another
thing altogether. They looked at Maria and Rose as if the two of them were
convicted criminals of the worst sort.

As if they were dirty.

Rose nodded.

“Lord preserve us.” The words slipped out before Maria could
stop them. “When will this madness stop?”

Rose turned then, a rueful smile on her face. “I wish I knew. Go now
and stay out of sight if you can.”

“But—”

“I’ll be fine. Dr. Geoff is still here. He’s as irritated
with all these inspections as we are. They’re a constant interruption,
and we have little enough time for our work as it is.”

Herman Geoff was a German doctor, but he treated Rose and even Maria with
the utmost respect. His uncle was a high-ranking officer. Very high. As long
as Dr. Geoff supported them, they would most likely remain safe.

If they did nothing to irritate or anger the local German troops. Something
Maria feared she’d already done.

She rushed to the back stairs and climbed them quickly. Rose would be safe.
The second daughter of minor gentry, she had demonstrated time and again her
diplomatic skills were more than up to the task of dealing with arrogant,
suspicious German officers.

Maria had none of those skills or family background.

The second floor was filled with bedrooms, now used as wards for their
patients. There was also a room where the nurses slept—Rose, herself,
two Belgian nurses and one German nurse who worked with them. A closet near
the back stairs had been converted into a storage area for bandages and
other medical supplies.

Perfect for a woman to hide in while waiting for their German visitors to
leave.

She opened the door, prepared to enter…

But the closet was already occupied—by a soldier complete with pack,
sidearm and rifle. The weapon wasn’t what snared Maria’s gaze
and held it.

His eyes were green. A brilliant emerald green.

Her breathing stalled as she stood in the doorway and stared into those
wide, pale eyes and at the blood spattered across his face and
uniform.

His British uniform. In a Belgian hospital full of enemy German
soldiers.

Good God.

Voices floated up the back stairs a few feet away and she opened her mouth
to caution him.

Before she could utter a warning, before she could blink, his hands reached
out, grabbed her, and yanked her into the closet, pulling the door closed
behind her.

Fear and shock crushed her throat as she found herself pressed against the
soldier’s body, one of his hands over her mouth, the other a steel
band behind her back.

She couldn’t move and the closet was so dark it might as well have
been a tomb. Blind and restrained, the unfamiliar scents filling her
nostrils took over her senses.

Mud, blood, and man.

***

Lieutenant John Bennet held the woman in his arms tightly enough to keep
her from crying out, but not enough to harm her.

He’d hoped to find someone to help him, preferably a nurse, but this
wasn’t how he’d anticipated meeting such a woman—staring
into her frightened face then pulling her into a dark closet. He
couldn’t even tell her she was in no danger from him. Any noise would
likely be overheard by the men now standing on the other side of the
door.

He held himself still despite the pain from his wound and the unfamiliar
weight of the woman in his arms. How long had it been since he’d held
anything so soft? Weeks? Months?

He sucked in a breath and the scent of evening flowers filled his head,
driving out all others. His cock stirred in response to the feel of her
curves along his flank. Her chest rose and fell erratically under his arm as
she tried to breathe through what must be a terrifying situation.

Yet there were no tears, no sobs, or cries.

He tore his focus from the delights of her body to consider her movements
for a moment. She’d stopped struggling for the most part and now stood
relatively docile in his arms.

Maybe she realized how dangerous his predicament was. If she was a nurse,
she might feel some sympathy toward him, some care.

Energy surfaced from some unknown well inside him, heating his muscles. He
couldn’t give up hope, not now. He had to find a way out of Belgium, a
way to report what he’d seen. There were more lives at risk than his,
thousands more. Including the nurse in his arms.

A man was giving orders in German in the hallway, from the sound of it,
only a few paces from the closet door. Orders to search the hospital for the
British soldier. Orders to find and detain for questioning the second
British nurse. The woman John no doubt held in his arms.

The woman now in as much danger as he.

Poor girl. It was one thing to tend wounded men in no shape to offer
offensive behavior, but quite another to be taken captive in a dark closet.
He was lucky she hadn’t screamed herself hoarse or fainted.

Somehow, he needed to communicate his lack of intent to harm her.
He’d been told this hospital was a place of safety for British
soldiers caught behind German lines. The last farmer who’d sheltered
him just outside of Brussels told him the matron of this hospital could help
him, had already helped many others like him. She might even be able to
supply fake identity papers and an escape route out of the country.

Warm, soft, and sweet-smelling, the woman in his arms could be the key to
his survival. And what he knew was the key to Britain’s defense.

His spine solidified, transforming into steel.

She didn’t know it, but he was prepared to kill to protect her.

About the Author

Mariam Is a Mechanical Engineer from Saudi Arabia. Despite majoring in an
engineering field, she never forgot her true passion which is writing and
literature. Her father encouraged her love for reading from a very young
age. That at the age of 12 she had already finished reading many books by
some of the most widely acclaimed novelists, Such as Victor Hugo, Charles
Dickens, and Fyodor Dostoevsky.

Mariam took an interest in writing, though she never had the determination
to become a published author until recently when she completed writing her
last novel The Deep.  It was a story that she enjoyed writing so much
that she really wanted to share it with the world.

Mariam was busy with her studies during the time she started first mapping
out this book’s initial plot. Nevertheless, at any given time she
would turn to writing, which helped her escape the stresses and routine of
daily life by immersing herself in the details of her story. Which revolves
around a mysterious empire deep under the ocean, a place with no shortage of
wondrous adventures, and where breathing underwater and mingling with
unusual ocean creatures was possible.

It took Mariam many years though to study marine life, and learn more about
the ocean in order to be able to build the events in her story. She
carefully crafted every detail to weave an anecdote that merges the beauty
of the ocean with the art of story-telling. Moreover, her aim was to capture
the essence of this hidden realm beneath the waves. And introduce the reader
to a glimpse of its magic.

Mariam conceived the idea of the Deep in 2014 when she heard about a friend
who got into a terrible diving accident. Fortunately, all turned well for
her friend. But this incident captivated Mariam’s attention and she
ended up writing the accident’s details on a note. These notes were
later developed into a plot. But Mariam had writer’s block and she was
about to give up working on the book. During this time, she moved to
Australia. She would often wander, and hike parts of this beautiful
country’s wilderness. One of the places she would come to love the
most is called the great ocean road. A coast area that overlooks beautiful
ocean sceneries, these trips helped revive Mariam’s dream to continue
writing the story, and finally, bring The Deep to life.

Moreover, Mariam would go snorkelling regularly in order to envision and
experience fully the world that her characters are experiencing. Whether it
was the murky waters, the beautiful corals, strong water currents, or even
not so friendly fishes.

Although finishing the manuscript was a very daunting task, especially
since Mariam had to translate her own book from Arabic to English herself.
It was an experience that she fully enjoyed, Learned a lot from, and helped
her dive into a world that is immensely mesmerizing and not fully
explored.

Carly, Maddie, Pilot and Cornelious have been waiting forever for their Seniors Only Cruise. After three years of solving crime in their small town, this trip is the relaxing break from Asbury they need. Dreaming of all the fun and drama-free adventures in store for them, the gang settles in for a calm summer cruise.

Soon after departing, things don’t go quite as planned. With strange, new additions to their itinerary, Asbury’s favorite sleuths detect something is amiss. When violence breaks out, Cornelious turns to the captain who quickly reassures everyone aboard. After all, what reason would the crew have to mess with a group of teenagers? Adding to their troubles is Cornelious’ cousin Dane, whose feelings for Maddie have only grown stronger.

Excited to be away from his father and finally dating Maddie, Cornelious tries to ignore his cousin as his insecurities fester. After a stirring revelation from Dane, Cornelious retreats from his friends and finds solace in the ship’s jolly Captain Dex. At the same time, Carly, Maddie and Pilot begin to suspect the crew, believing there’s more than meets the eye with this cruise. Frustrated by Cornelious’ withdrawal, the gang doubles down on their efforts to discover the crew’s motives. Pulled into a dangerous game of who to trust, the gang is determined to find the truth—and mend their friendship.

With relationships called into question and stunning secrets exposed, the gang faces their biggest obstacle yet—trust. Can Cornelious trust the captain more than his friends? With their peers placing blind trust in the crew, can the gang convince them otherwise, before it’s too late? Or are Pilot, Carly and Maddie just overreacting? With constantly changing itineraries, a scheming crew lurking behind every door, a happy-go-lucky captain refusing to dig deeper, and lifelong relationships put to the test, can the gang rekindle their relationship with each other and figure out what’s really going on?

A vegetarian from the city and a cattle-raising rancher sounds like a match
made in hell. But what if they need each other more than they realize?

When Hannah Hudson finds herself abandoned and alone on a Rocky Mountain
ranch, even a lottery win doesn’t change her bad-luck life. The
seclusion of this ranch house threatened to take her breath away, but she
managed to smile and thought, so this is what it’s like to be a
country girl.

Trace McAllister needs only his horse and wide-open spaces, but it’s
clear his new neighbor needs much more. If only she wasn’t so
stubborn, he could help her. Unfortunately, it seems to take an accident
– or was it a murder? –before she lets him into her life. They
have one thing in common: zero talent for handling their feelings.
Trace’s amazing cattle dog, Oatie, plays a part in bringing this
unlikely couple together.

From day one, Hannah’s unique relationship with her new horse keeps
her grounded despite mysterious conflicts, secrets, and a relentless,
unidentified villain. . Nothing will stop a McAllister cowboy from
protecting the woman he loves.

About the Author

I grew up in Estes Park, Colorado, and spent my formative years among deer,
coyotes, and beautiful blue columbine. I could see snow-capped peaks in
almost every direction. Living on the boundary line of the Rocky Mountain
National Park I could wander in by stepping out the backdoor of my childhood
home.

Today I am a full-time author writing Sweet Romance, Westerns,
Women’s Fiction, and Romantic Mysteries about cowboys, teachers, the
great outdoors—even Alzheimer’s. So far, there is a wonderful
dog in each of my novels. (I love dogs and horses too.)

Prior to full-time writing, I was an actor, a singer, an audio/video
producer, a classroom teacher, and a school principal. I claim to be an
eclectic reader and, therefore, an eclectic writer who loves to hike, cook,
read, and write.

Date Published 04-25-2022

Conservative talk-show host Mia Folger is in therapy with Dr. Harold
Rothenberg. Mia and her husband, progressive Congressman Bradley Crawford,
are not getting along these days, personally or politically.

When Crawford is found brutally dismembered and murdered, the evidence
points to Mia as his killer. While the prosecutor pushes for a murder
indictment, Dr. Rothenberg, convinced of his patient’s innocence,
turns to an old friend—high profile attorney Zachary Blake,
Detroit’s self-proclaimed ‘King of Justice.’

Blake will do anything for Rothenberg, the man who successfully treated his
kids in their battle with a predator priest. Zack takes Mia’s case,
but has his work cut out for him because Mia has been hospitalized, shocked
into a catatonic state at the discovery of her husband’s mutilated
body, unable to assist in her own defense.

Sensing he must prove Mia’s innocence to avoid an eventual life
sentence, Zack enlists the aid of his crack investigator, Micah Love, and
Micah’s cyber-specialist, Reed Spencer to dissect and poke holes in
the case. But, for this case, Micah in convinced that Zack needs
more—he recommends beautiful, sharp, brash, foul-mouthed,
cocky-confident New York based jury consultant extraordinaire Shari Belitz
and her team of mock trial/focus group gurus.

Shari is the best of the best. Her assignment in the Folger case? Flyspeck
the evidence and unleash her arsenal of psychological techniques and
predictive skills—use focus groups or mock juries to determine what
evidence or circumstances would cause the real jury to declare Mia Folger
innocent of all charges. Zack wants no part of Shari; one cocky
lawyer-Zachary Blake-should be sufficient to prove Mia’s case. Blake
knows what he needs for an acquittal; a brash jury consultant from NYC will
only get in his way. But Micah persists and persuades Zack him to give Shari
and her team a try.

Zack, Micah, Reed, and the irrepressible Ms. Belitz join forces in an
all-out attack on the evidence, while evil characters lurk in the
background, engaged in a sinister plot to assure Mia’s demise.

Expect the unexpected in this whodunit legal crime thriller, the 8th
installment of the Zachary Blake Legal Thriller Series, featuring all your
favorite series characters and one brash, exciting newcomer who gives Blake
all he can handle.
