Goddess Fish Promotions Cover Reveal: Heart Of Steel




Welcome to the cover reveal of HEART OF STEEL by Elizabeth Einspanier, a Science Fiction Romance available February 17, 2015. Elizabeth is giving away a $20 gift certificate to Steampunk Emporium. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

When reclusive cyborg Alistair Mechanus meets his captive, ER doctor Julia Parker, it is love at first sight--for him. While he eagerly drops his plans for World Conquest to woo her, ten years of solitude have left his social skills badly rusted. When his misguided act of kindness spirals out of control, however, Julia is forced to trust the mad genius with her life, and she discovers the vulnerable side under his armored plating. She has the skills he needs to unlock his forgotten past, but learning who he used to be may come at the cost of his remaining sanity.

Enjoy an excerpt:

She advanced cautiously, trying to get a look at the subject of his study in the next room. Before she could, however, the tall man in the hall with her spoke.

“Greetings, Julia,” he said in the baritone she’d heard from the speaker. She turned, and saw to her shock that a significant portion of the left half of his face, now revealed to her, was crafted of overlapping segments of unpolished metal, apparently riveted through the flesh and into the skull and jaw. His left eye was a mechanical lens that turned and focused in perfect coordination with its biological counterpart as he regarded her, its iris dilating as he offered her a welcoming smile. “I am, as you have probably guessed, Dr. Mechanus. I welcome you to my humble lair.” He sketched a bow to her, and she either heard or imagined the sound of countless motors whirring within him.

At first her thoughts were consumed by a single horrified thought—what the hell what the hell what the hell—repeated over and over again until her mind filled with what the hell from top to bottom and side to side. She felt light-headed, and braced herself against the edge of the observation window to avoid falling, but some persistently reasonable corner of her mind gently informed her that now simply was not a good time for her to faint or throw up.

Stay frosty, Julia, the voice advised her, in a familiar-sounding voice that Julia couldn’t immediately identify. Think of this like your first car crash in the ER. Sure, it looks horrible, but you can get through this. Just breathe. Get through this, and find out what’s happened to Jim. You’re okay.</ i>

Goddess Fish Promotions: An Amish Christmas Quilt



An Amish Christmas Quilt
by Charlotte Hubbard, Kelly Long, Jennifer Beckstrand

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:


A Willow Ridge Christmas Pageant

Seth Brenneman didn’t expect his holiday would include rescuing pregnant young Mary Kaffman and her two children…or having unexpected feelings for the still-grieving widow. But when they must play the leads in an impromptu live Nativity pageant to help his Amish community, will their roles reveal their hearts—and work a miracle for a lifetime?

A Perfect Amish Christmas

Anna and Felty Helmuth’s grandson, Gideon, plans to spend Christmas on a beach in sunny Mexico. But Anna is quite sure he’d rather be with them, snowshoeing, ice fishing—falling in love. And she knows the perfect girl. Not only is Dottie Schrock an excellent quilter and baker, she’s having a party. There’s just one complication—Gideon is not invited. Dottie has her reasons, but Anna trusts that the spirit of Christmas—and true love-will change her mind, and her future …



~~~~~~~~~~~~~




Excerpt:

A Willow Ridge Christmas Pageant

Seth Brenneman propped open the door to his wood shop, allowing fresh air inside now that the final coat of varnish on his walnut table had dried. This dining room set—one of many orders he’d already received for pre-Christmas delivery—was complete, with its china hutch, ten chairs, and leaves for the table. He smiled as the natural light shimmered richly on the tabletop. It was only September 28, months ahead of Christmas, but already the holiday season promised to be the most profitable ever for the woodworking and construction business he and his two brothers ran. When Micah and Aaron returned from an installation, they would deliver this set to its new owners in Bloomingdale, so Seth began piling furniture pads near the door.

Loud, strident barking made him stick his head outside. The racket came from a black and white border collie—and when it caught sight of Seth, it bounded toward him, barking even more insistently. Nobody around Willow Ridge owned a dog like this; he wondered if someone had dumped it on the roadside. The last thing he needed was a noisy, bothersome dog to feed, so he removed the chunk of wood from beneath the door to close it—

But the dog shot toward him, fixing him with an intense brown- eyed gaze that refused to be ignored. It charged at him, nipping his pant leg, still barking frantically as it pivoted to dash back toward the road. When the dog saw that Seth wasn’t following, it came at him again, barking even louder and faster as it circled him.

Hey! What’re you—don’t nip me, you ornery—” As Seth dodged the dog’s next attack, he noticed a surrey on the road with a small horse trailer behind it. At first sight he thought nothing of it, because in Willow Ridge, Missouri, double-sized buggies were an everyday thing. But when the border collie headed in that direction again, barking at him over its shoulder, Seth noticed the surrey wasn’t moving. As he loped toward the road, he heard a little girl crying her heart out. Then another young voice rose over the caterwauling.

Wake up! You’d better not die and leave us here—not like our real mamm did!”


Review:

I have only 3 words to say about An Amish Christmas Quilt.  I loved it! This book is a collection of holiday themed stories.

My favorite of the three was the first, A Willow Ridge Christmas Pageant. The live nativity just brought tears to my eyes. It was lovely.

A Perfect Amish Christmas has a little bit of matchmaking. That's always fun in Amish romance, and it hits the mark here too. 

This collection is a wonderful edition to anyone's collection of Amish fiction/romance. It was a wonderful way to pass an afternoon, especially when you want to get into the holiday spirit, the right way.

Rating: 5 stars

Charlotte Hubbard

Many moons ago—like, in 1983 while I was still a school librarian—I sold my first story to True Story magazine. This launched me into writing about seventy of those “true confessions” stories over the years, and I’ve been a slave to my overactive imagination ever since. My stories invariably take on a life of their own, different from the way I’ve proposed them: I love it when unforeseen characters and plot twists come along, because they keep me guessing right along with my readers!

I love touring historic homes, trying new recipes, crocheting, and playing with my border collie Ramona—although it’s humbling, having a dog smarter than I am! I’m an ordained Presbyterian deacon, and I devote a lot of time to singing in my church choir and to practicing/performing with our percussion ensemble. I’m celebrating more than thirty-five years with my husband, who—bless him—has never once suggested I get a real job!

Goddess Fish Promotions: A Curvy Girls Guide To Love








Curvy Girl’s Guide to Love Trilogy:
Countess Curvy: A Curvy Girl's Earl, and Boss Likes Curves: A Curvy Girl's Billionaire, and Curvy's Cad: A Curvy Girl's Mistake?
by Kristabel Reed
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Countess Curvy: A Curvy Girl's Earl

Audrey Mills is in London to organize a charity fashion event, where she meets Duncan Collins, the Earl of Thronhill. Confident in her curves, Audrey doesn't expect Duncan to want more than a holiday fling. But when things begin to heat up, will she panic and run?



Boss Likes Curves: A Curvy Girl's Billionaire


VP of Development, Sabrina McKenna, has worked hard to get where she is with Gideon Hotels. When Gideon Marquez asks her to attend several important business functions, Sabrina agrees. It's only after 2 months of these functions that she realizes they've been dating. And she's fallen hard for her boss. Can Gideon convince her what he feels for her is forever? Or will Sabrina's insecurities make her flee?



Curvy's Cad: A Curvy Girl's Mistake?

Eliza Lyons isn't interested in Craig Grant's attentions beyond the platonic. He's a playboy and boy does she know better. They lunch, they gossip, he tells her things about her current dates she doesn't want to hear and she thinks he'll never outgrow his playboy ways. Then Craig lays down the gauntlet and informs her he intends to show her what a real seduction is.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~





Countess Curvy: A Curvy Girl’s Earl:

That was cruel, Ms. Mills,” Thornhill stated. His eyes twinkled with amusement, and a slow smile spread over his lips. “You’d curse me to an evening of inane conversation, followed by inappropriate groping?”

You don’t strike me as a man to shun inappropriate groping,” Audrey added with a smile of her own.

Well…not from the right woman.” He pushed off the wall, all coiled grace and sex.

Audrey studied him for a long moment. Suddenly their conversation had turned from a game of fun flirting to more. Much more. She came to the astonishing conclusion that this shockingly handsome tall drink of deliciousness was actually into her. She could feel her eyes widen as she looked up at him.

Come now, Ms. Mills.” Thornhill took a step closer, his gaze steady on hers. “I can’t believe you aren’t pursued every waking moment.”

I must admit while I’m used to the delivery man or the odd photographer appreciating my curvaceous figure,” Audrey was surprised her voice held steady. “You are my very first…earl.”

It’s good to be first.” His smile was slow and suggestive, and it took Audrey more than one moment to look away from his lips. What would they feel like against hers? What did he taste like? She licked her own lips at the thought, and then regretted it when his eyes followed the move.

Maybe not regret, not if the rush of heat through her was any indication. No definitely not regret.

So, what do you say?” Thornhill asked, his voice low, a caress over her bare skin. “Will you rescind your rejection and accompany me to dinner tonight?”

A million things went through Audrey’s mind—everything from Is he joking? to Can I really do this? It would be such a fantasy to enjoy this man, to joke with him, to kiss him. To have him. Audrey had never really fallen headlong into the self-esteem chubby girl trap, but she still knew full well that this type of pairing never happened. Never.

She tore her gaze from his mouth, a small, thin voice telling her that wondering what he tasted like was the last damn thing she should be wondering. “Between two evils, I always pick the one I’ve never tried before.” The Mae West quote raced through her mind, and she heard herself saying, “I suppose it would nice to experience London with a native.”

Doctor Who In Review: Dark Water (And It is full of spoilers)

All is revealed

Yeah..

But there are more questions then there are answers when part one of series 8's finale ended.

Sure we know who Missy is now. Though as much as I was hoping for another answer to this question, I think we all knew who Missy was from the beginning.

And something rather nasty happened to Danny Pink (Ok...why was I so excited about that bit) which leads Clara to do something pretty nasty to the Doctor. And please, does "I love you" have to be the focal point of their story. I still want to know what these two have in common, besides teaching.

Seriously Clara, I could not hate you much more than I did about 10 minutes into this episode. If I were the Doctor, I would have dropped you out a window or something. But yeah, the Doctor likes you for some stupid reason, that no one has quite figured out.

The Cybermen are returning, and frankly this is one way that Moffatt has excelled. The concept of dark water makes the episode great for viewing, especially the day after Halloween.

The Nethersphere is a creepy place and I love how Moffat makes death even scarier. Erm...suddenly cremation doesn't look like a great option.

I almost felt sorry when they got around to Danny's secret. Well, it wasn't really a secret. We all knew after meeting him that he killed someone and that it affected him a great deal.

But the annoying thing about this episode is not really knowing where it is going.

1. We know Missy is the Master but we don't know how that happened or why she's part of the Nethersphere.

2. What is she doing with the Cybermen.

3. Is Danny really dead....somehow I don't think so.

4. When are we going to find out if Clara Oswald is really Clara Oswald. Nearly all the great teasers they showed were from part two and we really don't know much of anything about what Missy is up to.

So may questions..so little time.

Doctor Who In Review: Clara Oswald

Clara Oswald has to be one of Doctor Who's most frustrating companions.

She's the Impossible Girl and then after her impossibleness is revealed she becomes impossibly annoying, yet you don't want to hate her, because she is so sassy, and well, she's so darn cute.

I really wish she could have had a full season with 11 before and after her impossibleness, because to me there are a lot of unanswered questions about her, especially after 11s regeneration.

She's a girl that has saved all the Doctor's, yet she can't deal with 12 at the beginning. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Except that the one thing that Moffat drove home in Deep Breath was true, Clara acted like 11 was her boyfriend, and why not, he was a cute bloke, even if he was a 1000 year old alien.

Her personality really started coming out in the "Doctor Trilogy." She had some sass, and she was fun. Then she was tossed with an older, crankier Doctor who just isn't the hottie that 11 was.

The only thing that has improved with Clara in series 8 are her lines. "Run you clever boy" was her only series 7 gem.

The dynamic between Clara and 12 isn't quite what I hoped it would be. Part of the problem being the time spent reminding us that 12 isn't young and hot. The other part of the problem is Danny Pink.  He's a love him or hate him kind of character. Mostly, I hate him, because I think he's much too controlling for Clara. She's such a sassy kind of girl.

I wish she would have been a bit of a companion to 10 in the Anniversary Special. I think they would have been brilliant together.

Personally, I'm longing for an independent companion that doesn't need a significant other to be complete. I think the whole story arc with Danny Pink really weighs Clara down.

Plus I really want to know when she went from nanny to school teacher, and what happened to the kids from series 7?

I hate that Clara was a companion when she felt like it. Or rather every Wednesday or whatever day it was that she chose to travel with 11.

Also if the trailer for the series 8 finale is to be believed, Clara may be more than just an Impossible Girl which makes me want to scream even more. But I have to say, I'm very excited for the final two episodes of this season and even more for the Christmas special. I just hope Clara doesn't turn out to be even more impossible.

Super Book Blast: Brenda Novak - The Heart Of Christmas



The Heart of Christmas
by Brenda Novak

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Just call her Christmas Eve…

Eve Harmon has always enjoyed Christmas, but this year it reminds her of everything she doesn’t have. Almost all her friends are married now, and that’s what Eve wants, too. Love. A husband and kids of her own. But the B-and-B she manages and even Whiskey Creek, the small Gold Country town where she was born and raised, suddenly seem…confining.

As Eve turns thirty-five, she’s worried that her future will simply be a reflection of her past. She’s dated all the eligible men in the area. There’s no one she could even imagine as a husband—until a handsome stranger comes to town. Eve’s definitely attracted to him, and he seems to have the same reaction to her. But his darkly mysterious past could ruin Eve’s happily ever after—just when it finally seems within reach. Just when she’s counting on the best Christmas of her life!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

There was a naked man in her bed.

Eve Harmon’s stomach tensed, and her heart skipped a beat—but she was pretty sure she’d invited him. From the way their clothes were strewn carelessly around the room, it was obvious that, not long ago, she’d been happy to have him with her.

She nearly groaned as her eyes swept over him. What had she done? She didn’t have a boyfriend and she never slept around. She hadn’t been with anyone since Ted Dixon—an old friend who had briefly turned into more a year ago. And before him, it had been much longer. Most people, at least those younger than her parents, would consider her extended periods of celibacy rather pathetic for a woman her age. But she lived in a small town, cared about her reputation and had been holding out for the kind of love that came with a white picket fence.

She just hadn’t found the right guy, and she was beginning to think maybe she never would. The odds weren’t in her favor. Now that most of her friends were married, she didn’t get out all that often.

But she had a lot to be grateful for in spite of her dismal love life, she quickly reminded herself. Although she’d never been the type who wanted work to become her sole focus in life, she liked her job. She ran Little Mary’s, a B and B in a converted Victorian owned by her retired parents. They lived in the house a hundred yards in front of her own small bungalow—when they weren’t traveling in their RV like they were at the moment. Thanks to them, and the quaint, bucolic area where she’d been raised, her life had always been pleasant and safe—and predictable. Absolutely predictable.

Until now.

God, she hadn’t even slept with someone she knew. And since there were only about two thousand people in Whiskey Creek, it was hard to find someone she didn’t.

Shifting carefully so she wouldn’t wake the man lying next to her—she needed to regain her bearings before confronting him—she tried to get a look at his face, but a thunderous headache made it difficult to sit up. That headache also explained how she’d ended up in this predicament. Last night she’d made the mistake of going out to celebrate her thirty-fifth birthday even though her friends weren’t available until tonight, and she’d drunk too much. She’d been determined to do something wild and fun and completely out of character before reaching such a significant age, the age at which some doctors advised against getting pregnant.

Now she was paying the price for her out-of-control evening.

Had they even used birth control?

Briefly squeezing her eyes shut, she sent up a silent prayer that she’d had the presence of mind for that at least. It would be entirely too ironic for someone like her—someone so cautious—to get pregnant because of a one-night stand.


What have you done?

Doctor Who In Review: In The Forest Of The Night

I very seldom find Doctor Who a waste of my hour, but In The Forest Of The Night, might come close to being one of those episodes.

It did have its moments though they were few and far between.

I have learned a few things in series 8.

Peter Capaldi needs a better companion and I'm not knocking Jenna Coleman in any way. She's just the cutest little thing ever, but the writers are doing her a huge disservice.

She has the potential to be great, but instead they have to give her a boyfriend that is so mediocre. She's The Impossible Girl. Danny Pink is just so meh! I am not a Rose Tyler fan, but I think I like her much better than Mr. Pink.

I also wish they would have given us a reason why Clara and Danny like each other. Its the most unbelievable relationship ever. The word love got tossed around so early on, that I thought Doctor Who, might be turning into a romcom.

Then there's the whole Clara acting like Danny saves the world bit, that is also getting old..first with the Caretaker and now here with the tiger.

Steven Moffatt needs to stop with all the story arcs. You know there's something about Danny that's going to affect the world and the whole Nethersphere/Missy thing that's about to come to a head in the finale, but we've spent 11 episodes and I feel we've only gotten to know Clara and not 12. (I mean other than he is the Grumpy Cat of Doctor Who)

Sadly In The Forest of the Night can be reduced to a few great lines...





Peter Capaldi deserves so much better than this!

About Monique:

For as long as I can remember, I've had a boring, predictable life. I work at a low-paying job and have ho-hum missionary sex with my long-term boyfriend, who calls me "pear shaped" (and not in a good way). I've never been with more than one man or explored myself sexually. That's for sexy, skinny girls. Girls with exciting lives. Girls I'm not.

When a series of events send my life into a tailspin, I find myself at a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, locking eyes with a gorgeous, sexy stranger who sends my heart racing. Our first night together is one I'll never forget. Or the next. Shockingly, he wants to pay me lots of money just to have me as his personal sex goddess. Best of all, he's not the only one.

Soon, I'm discovering my sexuality for the first time, caught up in the exciting, glamorous world of high-class escorting. I'm also discovering myself: the independent, sexy, confident woman I was meant to be. Trouble is, I can't give my body without giving my heart. I'm falling in love with more than one man, and they with me. I can't choose just one . . . Or can I?
