Which Claire Are You?

We’ve given you many quizzes (that you can see by clicking HERE) but we haven’t given you this! Claire lives many lives, a WWII nurse, dutiful wife, feisty wife, Scottish lady, French court member, and so many more we won’t name because many of you lovely readers are still traveling though the books.

So pick some numbers and find out which of Claire’s lives you would live! Do you belong in high society France? As lady of Lallybroch? In the 1940s in post-war Europe? Or maybe in the season 3 location? (PS if you don’t know where the cast of characters go in season 3, this quiz will contain a teensy bit of spoilers)

Remember, take note of each number you choose and choose honestly!

BTW it’s now on sale for 99cents!! The Amethyst Bride, book two which is available HERE, follows a woman’s life as she decides between the British gentleman who can offer her the world and the Scottish warrior who can offer her passion.

Walking in Fire

This book has been sitting in my kindle, waiting to be read for quite some time. But between work, a toddler, and editing my own books, I’ve been terrible neglectful. However, I finally got some time to crack open this lovely read, and let’s just say that it brightened my weekend.

51R3FE3KFML

Heat Level: ♥♥♥♥

Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers

Genre: Paranormal Vacation Romance

Freckle faced Melia Carson is the first star we truly meet. She’s a young chef and terribly likable, but also terribly heartbroken. She hopes that the warm waters and pure sands of Kona can heal it…or maybe the hot Polynesian man with the golden, tattooed skin would have a better chance of doing in. She sure as hell would let him try, if only she thought the Hawaiian god of a man would be interested.

David “Malu” Ho’omalu isn’t cruising the island looking for mainland babes on vacation, something he has no problem finding. He’s on a mission to save his people, and plans on using his special skills in order to accomplish his task. Drugs have invaded his peaceful domain and the help of one magnetic, freckled tourist may help him stop the deadly invasion before it’s too late…and maybe help him clear his name in the process.

de1217305587fe85830db3a44946ff32

I enjoy a bit of history and facts with my story, when the plot allows, and it’s clear that Cade has done her research about Hawaiian customs and language. While the location is made up, you still get the feel of the islands with every page. Including the language and culture was done, most importantly, in a very respectful manner.

Overall, this book was literally the perfect one to take to the beach. Why not sit on the sand alongside Melia or swim in turquoise water with Malu, who in my head looks exactly like Jason Momoa? But if you aren’t living seaside, you certainly feel it when you read Walking in Fire. But beside the beautiful scenery, there’s a lot of action and intrigue, making it a bit different than the usual (hot vacation spot+hot guy+hot sex=hot romance). It goes a bit deeper, something I can’t find any issue with! So pick up a copy HERE and enjoy your vacation.

Brogan’s Promise

It’s no secret that I’ve been a huge Suzan Tisdale for years. So when I was accepted as a member of her early review team, I was thrilled! Now, here’s the latest in Scottish romance, Brogan’s Promise.

51lb1bpGqXL.jpg

Heat Level: ♥♥♥♥

Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers

Genre: Historical Scottish Romance

When we first meet Mairghread Mactavish, she’s drunk as a sunk and lamenting the loss of her family. She contemplates suicide, but knows that if she took her own life, she could be banished from heaven and would never see her husband and child again. She was once a beautiful and kind maiden who had the world at her feet, and her fall was such, her maid Gertie hatches a plan.

Gertie is the quintessential wing woman. She sees Mairghread in pain and on the cusp of being forced into marrying a terrible, brutish man. So she calls on Borgan of Clan Mackintosh to wife her up before it’s too late. You see, he’s also nursing a wounded heart after the death of his late wife. But Gertie won’t take ‘no’ for an answer and pushes the pair together “by accident” and when Brogan hears the true identity of the man Mairghread is to marry, he warms to the idea of taking a new wife, if only to save her from The Frenchman’s clutches, as he’s known for being less than kind to his wives.

murtaghmarymarriage

What follows is a very bumpy road for the pair. Mairghread’s drinking is causing her more grief as Brogan tries to help her find her footing in their new world. He’s kind, charming, patient, and forgives Mairghread for all her faults. Luckily, his extremely lovely, and familiar, family is there to assist them. But there is only so much they can do when a dastardly villain comes to wreck everything they’ve began to build.

Overall, this is another fantastic book that’s great for a beach read, albeit a bit on the emotional side at times. You’ll love Brogan, get annoyed with Mairghread, gasp at the drama, and grin at the little bits of comedy that are peppered in through the dramatic plot.

PS, when you go to Amazon to buy Brogan’s Promise HERE, which I know you will, you’ll see some one star reviews. Don’t even think of them. Amazon messed up something along the way and this book book was sent out to many happy readers only to be shown as a few random pages. The one stars are in no way a reflection of this wonderful book and it’s amazingly talented author.

Give Back to Hole High

When Kelsey isn’t writing, she runs two nonprofit organizations, which Sarah fully supports. One of the nonprofits is a new one named Hole High.

Hole High was created by Brandon Canesi, who was born without hands. Yet his limb difference hasn’t stopped him from living a normal, yet adaptive, life. But Canesi truly thrives on the golf course. However, proper equipment and training is difficult to find and not covered by the majority of insurance plans. Due to that, most people with limb differences aren’t able to participate in the game in the same way the general public can.

The goal of Hole High is to help children and young adults with limb differences obtain specialized gear and promote the love of the game, no matter your physical status. This is something Kelsey and Sarah both believe strongly in, so for today and tomorrow, we will be donating all of our book sale proceeds to Hole High in order to help all adaptive golfers Go The Distance.

Unexpected Treasure

My girl Grace Risata is back with a new steamy, hilarious, novel titled Unexpected Treasure, The Treasure Hunters Series Book 1. But wait, there’s more! Her friend Aidan Willows has joined the party and added her own special talented twist that is anything but boring. This duo has written a book that is a fabulous first in this series.

Heat Level: ♥♥♥♥

Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers

Genre: Romantic Adventure

When we meet mega hottie/Viking twin Lars, he’s been stumbling around lost for hours in the woods.  After he breaks into a cabin he find, he accidentally interrupts Helena, a beautiful woman who has also found sanctuary in the. Although it’s usually finders keepers, it looks like the pair has to share, since there’s a raging storm outside. They begin to get to know each other…until they’re interrupted and need to go on the run. Did I mention there’s a Viking hoard up for grabs and plenty of Norse jokes as well!

tumblr_m7287p772v1rsy50k.gif

Turns out Lars is a treasure hunter and Helena is fleeing a forced marriage. They band together, both bringing special skills to the mix, along with plenty of hot hot heat. The farther they get into their journey, the closer they become, and the more other people try to tear them apart. There’s danger, betrayal, sex, and sarcasm on this adventure that’s filled with twists and turns.

This book was steamy, funny, well-written, and an awesome start to the series. I know that good work takes time, but I’m really hoping that Willows and Risata will hurry up and release book two so I can spend another evening laughing out loud! All in all, Unexpected Treasure was one hell of a good ride.
