Rescued by the Spy by Laura A. Barnes 💕 Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway 💕(Historical Romance)



Kidnapped for revenge

Haunted by the man who murdered her family, Raina LeClair must always be two steps ahead of her sworn enemy through disguise and espionage. When her newest masquerade lands her back in the hands of the man she had previously kidnapped, she is awakened to the pleasure of his touch. When the threat of treason comes into play, Raina can no longer work alone to stop the destruction of England. Can she learn to trust the man who she once betrayed or will her obsession for revenge own her heart forever?

Kidnapped for love

Kidnapped and left for dead, Charles Mallory is always two steps behind in the quest to find his lady kidnapper. Discouraged, Charles turns his attention to a treason plot that is threatening his beloved England. Only to discover the lady who not only held him hostage, but stole his heart, mixed up in the crossfire. Unable to persuade her of the danger she is truly in, Charles resorts to kidnapping her to his family’s cottage. There they learn the true threat lies within their passion for each other. Can he convince her of the love in his heart or will he be left destroyed by this lady once more?



She watched him from the stairs. Her heart had not stopped beating fast since she seen him walk into the tavern. He was in danger and she had no way to warn him. If she did it would blow the cover she had worked so hard on, she was not going to lose what ground she had gained; just because her heart wanted to betray her. Why was he here? Didn’t he know Shears wanted him dead? Why was he so bent on trailing him? Was he looking for her too? That was only wishful thinking on her part, the kind of thinking that could only get her into trouble. He would want nothing to do with her, not after he knew her whole part in kidnapping him. Which he probably knows by now. After all she was captured by his soon to be brother-in-law.

Thornhill would have told him how she was behind the plot to kidnap him and how closely involved she was with Shears to bring the terror to England. It did not matter that she had instead nursed him back to health and tried to thwart Shears’s terror plans.

He looked healthy as if he had made a complete recovery. The bruises had disappeared from his face. He was even more handsome than she could imagine.

As he leaned back in his chair, she watched as he smiled at Bessie. Her breath caught as she saw the charm that overflowed from his smile. When his smile reached his eyes, they lighted up in enjoyment. She never got to enjoy his smile, he was always in too much pain. Even when his pain receded, they were always in too grave of danger to have a reason to smile.

Another emotion began to take place as she saw him flirt with Bessie. When he pulled Bessie onto his lap, nuzzling at her neck; she felt angry. Not just angry but betrayed. How could he pull another woman into his embrace and share intimacy with her? Did the words and kisses they share not mean anything to him? Obviously not.

She watched as Bessie stroked his arm and listened as he told Bessie he would join her in her room later. Well we will see about that, won’t we, Mr. Charmer? She planned to wait for him there.

True by Ann Everett 💕 Behind the Scenes, Book Tour & Prize Pack Giveaway 💕 (Contemporary Romance)



Sometimes it takes losing everything…

True Shanahan must be the unluckiest woman in the world. Either that or she’s cursed. After another failed relationship, True leaves Dallas with a broken heart and new attitude. It’s time to walk on the wild side. But when she makes a wrong turn and ends up in Bluebird, Texas, the only man she wants is anything but reckless.

…to find all you’ve ever wanted.

Ritter Malone is the town’s favorite son and has the local hero awards to prove it. Seems he’s always in the right place at the right time. But when he crosses paths with True, his life takes a turn he never sees coming. Her songwriting skills may be questionable, but her ability to turn him inside out is indisputable.
Welcome to Bluebird, Texas.

Where a chance meeting gives two people a chance at love.



In my latest book, True, main character True Shanahan writes quirky songs. I had no problem coming up with titles. However, then I realized I’d need at least a few lyrics. Ah oh. That might be a problem. But, I had a brilliant idea. Why not use Fiverr? They were bound to have plenty of people on there with musical talent.

I spent the better part of an evening searching for vendors who might be able to help. I chose a few and figured at five bucks a pop, surely, I’d get something useful. I sent them a song title and a brief background explaining how True had suffered a lot of bad breakups and chose to write songs about them.

Once I discovered some of the members on Fiverr charged extra for publishing rights, I looked for those who included the rights for the basic $5 gig. I found several. I spent about $25 and even though I was only able to use a few lines from each writer, they were helpful.

Who knew writing bad songs would be so hard? And by bad, I mean not good. So, with a few lyrics to add to those I’d already penned, I decided I needed to look in a different direction for help. I’ve belonged to http://www.thenextbigwriter.com a writing/review site since 2010, and they have a lot of poets on there. I contacted one and she gave permission to use one of her poems or at least some lines from it…which I did. Just one problem, she wrote serious stuff, but I figured True needed a serious song or two. Then two more members offered poems, and I used some lines from theirs.

I posted on Facebook to see if any of my followers wrote songs. They didn’t, but one friend sent me something she’d written, and I used part of it. I even asked family members and two of my little sweethearts came up with something I was able to use.

Then I remembered a man on The Next Big Writer who was a professional songwriter and had been for thirty years. Jackpot!

In the end, with help from family, friends, and acquaintances, I came up with 15 songs. In the back matter of True, I have her songbook that includes titles:
You Can’t Emoji Your Way Out of This
You Give me Asthma
Bad Birthday
Downie Brownie
There was Nothing Between Us but Your Penis—just to name a few.

I learned something from writing this story. I might be able to write a 350 page book, but I am no songwriter!



When Ritter arrived at the gym, he spotted Cole jumping rope. He stopped and glanced at the wall clock. “You’re late. Roommate didn’t have you tied up, did she?”
“Very funny. We got a dog. Stayed up playing with him. I hit the snooze one time too many.”
Cole ran a towel over his face, then his lips curled. “That’s not good.”
“What? Getting a puppy?”
“Naw. The we in that sentence sounds like a contract extension.”
Ritter stretched. “I won’t lie. I’ve gone home to an empty house so long, thought having someone there would drive me nuts, but it hasn’t—for the most part.”
Cole stepped on the nearest treadmill, turned it on, and ran a steady pace. “I gotta hand it to you. You’ve managed to sleep with her and keep your hands to yourself. Or have you?”
Ritter climbed onto the machine next to Cole’s and matched his stride. No need to confess he hadn’t exactly resisted, but he’d not passed second base—by much. Had it not been for the phone call, he would have hit a home run. He’d had the wood for it. “No.”
“Come on. No way you haven’t hit that. Especially after what you told me about her coming on to you.”
“That’s why I can’t let her stay. My resistance is wearing thin.”
Ritter and Cole’s phones sounded a text at the same time. Ritter read his, then shot Cole a look. “Turns out, we’re off this afternoon.”
Cole dropped his cell back into the cupholder. “I’ve never been to New Jersey. You?”
“Nope but looks like the storm is calling us there.”

NYT & USAT BESTSELLING AUTHOR

Dragon-shifter Prince Kyran has studied the Earth people and is ready to assimilate. Female shifters are all but going extinct on his planet of Qurilixen, and his people are desperate for mates—so much so they’re taking matters into their own hands. What better place to find a woman than Earth? After all, dragon-shifters had come from there centuries ago. Surely a human female would be honored to be selected by one as fine and fierce as himself.

While on Earth, Kyran stumbles upon the most beautiful woman he’s ever imagined, singing something the natives call rock ’n’ roll. His blood simmers and he knows Eve is the one for him. But taming this feisty female is going to take much more than his training prepared him for.

Not His Dragon by Annie Nicholas 💕 Flash FREE eBook & Review 💕 (Dragon Shifter Romance)



Eoin Grant hasn’t encountered a female of his race in decades, and this crazy person’s scent declares her unmated. Fate set her in his path, and he won’t let this opportunity slip through his claws. No matter how wary she is of him. After all, how many chances does a dragon have at finding love? But fate can be a crueler mistress than his perfect mate. Of all things, she thinks she’s human.

Business is taking off for Angie Weldon. She put her freakishly sharp nails to good use when she opened her back-scratching spa in downtown New Port. The local shifter community pounced on her skills and she’s knee-deep in shed fur. By the end of the year, if lucky, she could afford to move out of her crappy apartment.

Dollar signs flash before Angie’s eyes when a dark, brooding stranger books her solid for a week but she notices the possessive fury in his glare. She’s been around enough shifters to know the look, and she won’t go down that road again. Angie is literally swept off her feet by the intense shifter and he wants more from her than she’s willing to give. She figures it’s best to avoid eye contact and back away slowly. Until he changes her life by insisting she’s a dragon.

(Full length novel. No cliffhangers. Here be dragons.)


Hot. Intense. Hot. Fun. Hot. I loved it!

This is tied for my favorite Annie book. In her typical fashion, she wove a story with an excellent pace, some laugh-out-loud moments, and plenty of steam.

Or dragon-smokin'-hotness, in this case.

Angie was hilarious! I absolutely loved her sass and her independence.

Eoin was total alpha but with a softer side when it came to Angie, which made him absolutely adorable.

This was one of those books that I could not stop reading. I found myself sneaking a few pages in literally every free minute I had.

I loved this book, and I can't wait to read what Annie writes next!
