My Fair Lily Meara Platt Historical Regency Ewan Cameron, estranged grandson of the Duke of Lotheil, is in London because of a deathbed promise made to his father and has no intention of staying beyond his three month obligation.
Nothing can tempt him to remain, not even Lily, the beautiful bluestocking determined not only to restore relations between him and his grandfather, but to turn Ewan into a proper gentleman. Ewan, proud of his Scottish heritage, refuses to admit that Lily, a blue-eyed, English girl, has claimed his heart. Nor is it significant that Ewan can always tell Lily apart from her identical twin sister.
Lily Farthingale, the scholarly twin, dreams of becoming the first female member of the Royal Society. In the next moment, she was knocked to the ground by the biggest, hairiest excuse for a dog. Get off me! She was still spitting his drool from her lips when the owner reached her side and unceremoniously lifted Jasper out of the way. Are ye hurt? It had flown out of her hands, and she had no idea where it might have landed. My fault entirely.
His bushy growth of beard made him appear as daunting as a pirate. His lips were nicely shaped, and so Issue 22 May He took gentle hold of her hand. Be careful now. He released her when she regained her footing, then retrieved his handkerchief, and was about to use it to dab the mud off her gown when he suddenly stopped and let out a short, strangled laugh. The delicate lemon silk just delivered yesterday, which she had worn for all of ten minutes, was ruined.
Oh, crumpets! Jasper, obviously feeling contrite, whimpered as he came forward and rubbed his head against her knees. Tufts of his hair ground into the ruined fabric, leaving it not only wet and muddy but now adorned with dog hairs. Oh, perfect! What more can go wrong today? And where were her spectacles? Shall I help ye into the house? I can manage the rest of the way. Took another halting step, then another. Squish, squish. Her humiliation was now complete. She wished he would stop acting kindly and simply go away. The sooner this embarrassment was forgotten, the better.
Jasper, now standing between her and the Farthingale entry gate, began to whimper again. His tail wagged hesitantly, once… twice. Oh, his big chocolate eyes! Too adorable to resist. Lily succumbed with a sigh. His owner let out an agonized groan. She and her family recently moved in to their dream home in the mountains above Denver, Colorado. Danica loves to explore the depths of human nature and follow people on the journey to happily ever after. Though the journey is often bumpy, those bumps are what refine imperfect characters as they live the life God created them for. Then again, getting there is all the fun.

My series is set during the silver mining boom in Leadville, Colorado. Believe it or not, I started writing historical westerns because my agent dared me to. I never wanted to write historicals because I love them so much that I was afraid of turning my first love into work. However, my agent twisted my arm, I tried it, and decided to write about an area I knew well- Leadville, CO.
Fortunately, even though writing about Leadville is a lot of work, I still find it very fun and rewarding. Uncaged: You also write in the contemporary genre, but all your books are clean and inspirational romances. Can you tell readers more about your other series? I have a contemporary series, Legacy of the Heart, which is part of a larger series called Arcadia Valley. Legacy of the Heart is about a group of grandchildren.
And, of course, they all fall in love along the way. My third book in the series, The Taste of Romance, is out in June. Uncaged: What are you working on next? My first series with them, tentatively called Three Sisters Ranch, will begin in February In the meantime… I have a novella coming out right around the time of WDR as part of the Legacy of the Heart collection different from above, weird, I just noticed it was the same name!
We have five different stories, two historical and three contemporary, based on a locket that is passed down from woman to women. I also have my first book with the Brides of Blessings. Wow, so much!! I hired an assistant who reads them for me, and she lets me know the things I need to know. Good question! Anytime a reader lets me know my books have made a difference in their lives is something very special to me.
Start to finish… ugh. I have a weird process. Percolation can take months, but the actual writing is usually less than a month. I love writing. All I want to do is write. The hardest part for me is the ending. I just want to keep writing and writing because I seriously love to write.
I think my fans are awesome, and I love getting to know them. I love to travel! Seriously, my dream life is to travel the world and write. But come home sometimes, because I also love being home. We bought our dream-in-progress home in the mountains three years ago, and while it is definitely a work in progress, I love being here. The joke is that when my kids leave, I will be a recluse and never leave my house, except to travel, because I love it so much.
My other favorite place on Earth is England. If I could live there a month out of every year, I totally would. Living with the widowed former lawman—who once helped put her ex in jail—and his adorable twin daughters on their Colorado ranch is a welcome respite. But in his gut he knows his feelings for the gentle beauty run deeper than duty—and it stops him cold.
After guarding their wary hearts for years, can Owen and Laura give love a second chance? Excerpt Leadville, Colorado Owen Hamilton shielded his eyes against the sun as he tried to make out the rider coming toward him. His small ranch outside of Leadville, Colorado, was too far from town to get many visitors. His sister, Lena, stepped out of the house. Get inside and bar the door. Keep the girls close. You know what to do. Now that the rider was closer, Owen recognized him. He called over his shoulder at the house.
Put on some coffee and see what you can round up for refreshment. The only reason Will would come to see Owen unannounced was if it was about a case. Both Will and the sheriff had tried talking him into at least remaining a consultant. True, on that last case, no one had died. But Owen had gotten distracted, and because of it, a woman and her children nearly died. Though everything turned out all right in the end, he.
As Will dismounted, Owen walked over to greet him. He must have been riding hard. Then you can be on your way. When I turned in my badge, it was for good. Though Owen had no regrets in moving out to the ranch, sometimes he thought about how isolated they were out here. Leaving behind their social connections had been a small price to pay for his privacy. Maybe it sounded selfish, but Owen knew that if his fellow lawmen could just run down the street to ask for his help, keeping his badge hung up would be near impossible.
Besides, he and Lena had grown up here. Which made being out here, several Issue 22 May Even though they had each other, the twins missed their friends in Leadville. Will laughed and gave the girls another squeeze. But hopefully, you can come to town soon and stay with us.
I told you, I put that life behind me. Nothing you have to say is of interest to me. Will, nice to see you again. Even having quit her job, she was still good at giving orders. Mary sends her regards. Even though this is a quick trip on business, there are some cookies in my saddlebags that she insisted I bring.
Not that Owen wanted to get rid of his friend because entertaining guests was always a pleasurable endeavor. But business, that was another story. Then we can get the cookies and bring them in the house. Laughing, they ran to the barn. Owen looked at his friend. If anyone understands the difficulties you have with going back, it would be Will. Will has more faith in me that he should. Our friendship has blinded you to my faults. What you want? His face squeezed tightly into an expression of a man bearing the worst kind of news. The words that were to come out of his mouth were irrelevant.
No matter what they were, Owen would help his friend. They had him in maximum security. The prison sent a telegram right away. One more promise Owen had broken as a lawman. Laura believes that James will value his freedom more than anything else. At the trial, at his sentencing and even when I went with her to give him divorce papers. The last time she saw him, he was like a madman, giving in graphic detail a list of all the horrible things he would do to her before he killed her in revenge for testifying against him.
James Booth was a womanizing charlatan, hurting everyone in his path who did not give him his. At the time, Laura had been hesitant to speak out against him. He had many friends and associates, and she feared that they would help them avoid the consequences of his actions. Owen had been the one to convince her otherwise.
And now James had done the very thing Laura was afraid of. Will had been right to ask Owen to come out of retirement for this. Hopefully, Owen would be able to keep that promise.

Uncaged Review A story about love, trust and second chances with a good dash of suspense and danger thrown in. But when the danger looms and people are killed, Owen takes Laura to his ranch, a hidden gem that very few people know about. The two people will need to learn to trust each other, and also trust the feelings that they have for each other, brewing under the surface. This is a nice romance, with enough humor, suspense and danger thrown in, along with some great family moments. Nice series. Jade Gray grew up on a farm in Oklahoma with one sister and three brothers. She began reading romance novels in high school and was hooked.
In an attempt to entertain her friends she began writing stories. The biggest hurdle she had to overcome with her writing was sharing her stories. She is also a former member of the Romance Writers of America. She met her husband, Nathan, while attending college and has two grown sons, Blake and Mason. She lives in Kansas with her husband, rescue cats Meera and Mango, and one spoiled dog-named Fabio.
Yes, she helped name the dog. She chuckles when she hears her husband calling for his four-legged companion. Uncaged welcomes N. Mitchell Reeves owns a ranch in the Durango, Colorado area and lives with his sister Becky. Uncaged: Did growing up on a farm inspire you to write in a western genre? I believe there are several influences at play.
Growing up on a farm in Oklahoma definitely influenced my love for cowboy stories. Along with a house full of men who loved to watch westerns. John Wayne was a household name. And what is there not to love about. A major event in history for Lawrence, Kansas is the burning of Lawrence by Quantrill and his Raiders. When the th anniversary of the event happened a few years ago, I began to think of what if scenarios and Raider of Her Heart was born. Ambushed Judson finds himself in the year twenty seventeen and regretting his failed mission. Sadie Winters hoodwinked by her Grandfather, Walt Winters, finds herself taking care of two invalids.
Both are unwilling to share the secret Judson harbors. Yes, I read the reviews. One of the hardest things to realize, as a writer, is not everyone loves your characters, story as much as you do. Everyone has their ideal type of book they enjoy reading. All for the Love of a Cowboy appeals to both men and women. I received a hand written letter from an year-old man who absolutely loved my book and story. He had read it twice before he sat down to write me his letter of appreciation for my book. He loved that it was a western story, but he knew how the story ended for my hero and heroine.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love the area, the hiking, fishing and have had many great vacationing memories there over the years. The hardest part of writing a book for me is making myself write. No planning involved. The easiest part is story ideas. My favorite part is holding my book baby in my hands. You can have received the letter from the publisher, completed all the steps for editing and getting the book ready, but the dream of becoming published sinks in when you receive and hold the printed copy of your book in your hands.
You did this! You created a story! My debut novel All for the Love of a Cowboy, are you sitting down, took over twenty years. Yes, twenty. I was a full time mom, full time employee and full time wife. My current book Raider of Her Heart took about three years. My third book is started and the verdict is still out on how long it will take.
I hold a full time job on top of being an author and having the energy and dedication to figure out marketing at the end of the day has been daunting. This process is under constant construction. I like to enjoy life. I love to entertain people with a story. I want you to walk away with a pleasant feeling and maybe a chuckle or two after reading one of my books.
We all need a little feel good in our lives. Someone is sabotaging his ranch, cattle are missing, his sister is testing her wings, and his quarrel with a neighboring rancher has heated to boiling. Computer programmer Rachel Morgan understands machines, but fails with the opposite sex. Found in the most startling place and time.
Could she go home, if she had the chance, without knowing his true feelings? When unwanted attention from another man turns to kidnapping, Rachel is torn between wishing she were home… and risking it all for the love of a cowboy. Where the hell was he? His nostrils flared as he reined in his temper. Finally, he found his prey. Sanders leaned against the bar with an arm around one of the bar maids. The ornate mirror behind the bar gave away his approach. Jake Sanders turned to sneer at Mitchell. You look a little hot. Do you hear me? Jake shifted his weight, drew up to his full height, and clenched his jaw.
Accidents happen. Then I would have that ranch of yours and your little sister right where I want her. He wiped at the blood trickling from his lip. Breath expelled from his lips in a hiss as he staggered. Jake put a hand to his nose. Losing his footing, he fell into a table and chair directly behind him. The men who had been playing poker scattered. Cards and chips went flying as he knocked the table over and landed hard on the floor. He watched in a daze as Jake advanced and loomed over his sprawled position.
He tried not to flinch as Jake grabbed his shirtfront and drew his fist back to land a blow to his face. The two locked in a bear hug and rolled a few feet, crashing into another table and chairs. A shot rang out and echoed throughout the saloon. Both men stilled at the sound. Bill Silver, the owner of the Silver Spur, held a smoking pistol in the air.
Take this scuffle outside. Uncaged Review I always get a kick out of time travel stories, specially that goes backward in history and seeing how the one person from the future tries to negotiate with people from the past, and it is definitely fun here. This debut novel from this author is a brilliant start for her, a love story with suspense and will keep you busy watching for clues on how Rachel will be able to return to her own world, but the real question is, does she still want to?

Tom Leins is a disgraced ex-film critic from Paignton, UK. However, a lucrative pay-day from a soon-to-retire cop tests his resolve, and Rey quickly finds himself on the trail of a deranged plastic surgeon with a queasy line in body modification procedures. Over the course. Inside is a human hand. It is half rotted, with flaked yellow skin clinging to the bone.
She grinds out her high tar cigarette and taps her red lacquered nails on the desktop irritably. Will you do it? I nod. They only ever get in the way. The Balthazar family were old money, and had a lax attitude towards their business associates. It seemed like they were working towards a common goal, but the relationship was a disaster from the outset. Marie caught him trying to procure a rent boy on their honeymoon, and it went downhill from there. He stuck around long enough to drain a couple of her bank accounts — and find out where some of the proverbial bodies were buried.
I was surprised when she told me that she had enlisted a smack-addled loose cannon like Frank Cutler for the job. He used to be a pimp, and ran a pair of West Indian girls who specialised in sado-masochism. No one knew exactly when they arrived, or where they disappeared to, but they briefly made him a lot of money. Frank cradles the Molotov Cocktail like a new born baby. He is weirdly proud of the fact that he made it himself. His eyes are bloodshot and he is wearing a greasy overcoat. He pulls the rubber Halloween mask.
He trudges across the gravel lot towards the North Atlantic Motor Inn, the missile dangling from his gloved fist. He spends every night holding court in the cocktail lounge, surrounded by flunkies and hangers-on. I can see the fluorescent lights flickering behind the frosted glass — until the window explodes on impact. Then the screaming starts. Frank peels off the rubber mask and drops it onto the scarred table.
It stinks of burned flesh and stale smoke. On the table it looks even more grotesque — like something you would scrape out of a medical waste container. His eyes shine with lunatic glee. I squeeze so hard I hear his windpipe give way with a crunch. When Giselle McTavish left France as the wife of a Scottish laird, she never expected to be widowed two years later and left with a toddler to raise. Her struggles to overcome loneliness and homesickness are compounded as it becomes more difficult to fight the warm feelings Hugh now stirs in her.
Uncaged Review: A short prequel novella to the Castle Bride series and it truly sets the mood and grabs hold of you right away. It amazes me how much back story and character development the author squeezes into these pages. Something a bit different is the fact that Giselle is French and along with the Scottish brogue, the French words are interwoven and gives it even more depth to the book.
My only complaint is it was way too short. I wanted more Hugh and Giselle. A worthy prequel for a terrific author. No one knows how old Madame Scarlet is and there are those who suspect she is much older than can be believed. Uncaged Review: Seven tales all focused around Madame Scarlet and her carnival workers. Some of the stories are dark and some are heartbreaking.

The problem is, Lachlan Daniels was already in love with his model girlfriend. But she just dumped him, and on the night of the Brownlow Medal ceremony—the most prestigious award in Australian Rules Football—Julia is determined to win him over.

I enjoyed the journey with Dick and Callie and was very much on edge with their journey. A beautiful love story set in the 60s where boy meets girl. Kathryn Le Veque Historical Medieval Can a gruff, seasoned knight win over the love of his life in the midst of political chaos?
Uncaged Review: This time the author gives us a wonderful romance with an older Knight - full of betrayal, suspense, action, danger and of course, love. There were moments I was hanging on the edge sweating it out, and other times I was laughing out loud to the characters in the story. There is a lot going on, and a few subplots running right along with the main story, and did I mention puppies? Lots and lots of puppies. One of my favorite books by this author, that is, until I read the next one.
Uncaged Review: This is a time travel book. What is different is the method is via a pool table which was made from a standing stone. Things like shot glasses, balls and people disappear through the table, ending up in different centuries. The book is writing in parts with a different person as the focus for each story. Throughout the book is a Larry Fischer who owns the house where the table was placed when it was made.
It has been there for over two hundred years. Emily falls through the table and meets Jeremy. They end up going back to his time to live. Part 2 The Shot Glass, involves Tony Finch who, according to the family history, disappeared without a trace from his time period. He shows up in the standing stones where Sophia was at the time. He ends up staying in the present time. He is aware Phineas went back to and returned to his time with the compass which originated in the s and was use by a Captain Andrew Finch.
Tony and Larry Issue 21 April Uncaged Reviews are studying the time travel and attempting to figure out how the various people and objects travel through the time and get to or from where they were. Cara goes to with an ivory ball she sees in an exhibit in to meet Garret Finch. She attempts to go back to her time but ends up in present day and meets Dane. They jump to the future after realizing they had been dreaming of each other for years.
I will admit, most time travel books I find trite and not all that interesting. In fact, it was almost believable. I loved that she tied it all together with Larry and Dilys and the Finch family. I have to admit I liked Tony a lot. Unlike most time travel, there was nothing fantastic any of the characters did other than going to a different century.
Mather deals with the adaptations of the one who jumps through time, and sets the stage for various romances. The only unbelievable part is the immediate acceptance of a person showing up out of nowhere who is totally different. It was fun to discover which Finch was going where and who they would meet. I give it 4 stars.

With so many cozies being written today, what makes your book stand out from the crowd? I started out as a teacher and found that I enjoyed teaching the writing process.
I also loved teaching literature which I guess was my way of preparing to be a writer. I always fantasized about what I thought the life of a writer would be after watching John-Boy Walton, and Jessica Fletcher. Of course, there was a little more to it, but I still love writing. There are many cozies on the market today, so I do a couple of things to make my books rememberable. I like to make my characters very human and the kind of people we all have around us. I am an obsessive outliner. Before I write a book, I usually have every scene outlined as well as research, character sketches, setting photographs.
I usually go through this part of the writing for two weeks to a month. The outline is never perfect, but it keeps me on track. True confession: I make it a habit to not read a lot of my reviews. For reviews, I go on blog tours like this one, but mostly rely on readers. I would tell my younger self I had a lot to learn about writing, sticking to it, and the world of publishing.
Many people think that writing a book is simple and I was no different. I still learn something every time I start a new one. Do you think that the cover plays an important part in someone buying your books? I think the cover is extremely important. I base this on my own buying habits. I also think that authors need to be aware of what covers look like in their market. My book covers have been designed by various people including myself. There are way too many people in my head who are not actually real. Also, I am overwhelmed by the kindness of readers, my community and my family who have supported and encouraged me.
I write around the time I spend with my adult son with Down syndrome. I am also working on my first historical cozy mystery set in Editing can be difficult because you have to go through your book over and over again. The easiest part for me has always been writing the first draft. Everything is fresh, and my little world-creating brain goes to my happy place. Who are your some of your favorite authors? I read cozy mysteries, but also enjoy traditional mysteries, thrillers, literary fiction, Christian fiction and even some sci-fi. My favorite author is Fannie Flagg. I love her characters.
Not only do I write mysteries, but I love to feature other mystery authors on my blog. I run a feature called Cozy Prizes Friday for my blog readers so that they can find out about all the new cozies and the giveaways. You can sign up for my newsletter at….
The book will be free until next Tuesday. Amazon author page — amazon. Today is the first day of my list for this week.
