Samuel Woods is a bounty hunter, and when one of his jobs goes south, he fakes his death to protect those he loves. When he runs into Sophia during a job, he’s floored.

  • Walk the Walk Amazon Buy Links (Available on KU after release dates)

Walk the Plank Book Blurb:

Branko learns he will be sold into slavery when they dock in Charles Town, so he doesn’t hesitate to jump ship onto a neighboring sloop in the harbor. This boat will weigh anchor with him at the helm–once he decides what to do with the lady chained in the cargo hold who claims she’s a vampire.

Magda Dashkovari’s body has been given to science while she’s still living in it. Her prayers are answered when a pirate boards her boat, but she should have asked for her rescuer to be less bloodthirsty than she is…

Scientists hunt her in town, plantation owners hunt him from the north and south, Blackbeard blocks Charles Town Harbor to the east, and a war rages between settlers and natives to the west. These unlikely allies will have to link together to escape a life in chains…but will their trust in each other endure their journey to freedom?

Walk the Plank Excerpt:

“Who is Blackbeard?” My heart skips a beat at her naivete. Her accent is foreign, so I forgive the slight. Unfortunately, she takes the opening to worm her way further into my mind. “We got off to a poor start. I am Magda Dashkovari, and I am a vampire.”

My disbelief bubbles like a good ale as we reach the deck. Gut-busting, belly-aching, side-stitching laughter brings tears to my eyes. From a madman captain who masquerades as a demon to a madwoman boat owner who masquerades as a vampire—I can pick ’em, can’t I? She wraps her wrist with furious revolutions while I wipe my tears.

“I don’t care what you are,” I tell her, “as long as you are leaving.”

“I could drain you.”

“I could throw you overboard.”

“I’m staying.”

“—in Charles Town Harbor, and this boat is leaving.”

“I will sink this boat before I let you return it to my husband! Whatever he has promised in reward is a lie. Once you are in his harbor, one of his minions will drain you—”

“Oh, he’s a vampire, too. Is there a whole colony waiting for me somewhere? Listen, sea hag, I don’t know your husband, and the last thing in my future is to return his boat.”

K.D. Peters’ Cover Reveal for The Sphere of Spirit

Blurb

The Sphere is an ultimate weapon to destroy a world and requires the sacrifice of ten magical kids. Nine are missing and novice fae, Sophie, is the tenth.

Seventeen-year-old Sophie Emerson struggles to keep her clairvoyance a secret. Seeing the future belongs to the Dark Ones. But when Sophie’s visions display the nine missing kids from the village and place herself in the middle of it all, she has a choice to make. Reveal her secret and suffer the consequences or end up being the missing segment of a weapon that will bring forth the apocalypse.

Excerpt

She gasped. “Today marked a year, Soph.” 

“Hmph.” I sighed, thinking that yesterday, a year ago, my life was normal. The change had started with a dream of a flaming bird. The phoenix lured me closer with its angelic melody, and when I reached it, I burned. It felt so real that when I opened my eyes, the pain still lingered. I woke up in the hospital, discovering that the migraine caused this pain. The killer headache had visited regularly, and it was the reason I was lying in this bed. The last part of the change…

The door swung open and Colby, the nurse, ferried herself into my room. Her curvy hips moved side to side with each step and her furious red hair was a few flickers away from glowing. Her sleek, black tail swayed behind her butt. She’d become a dear friend the past four days. Colby grabbed the chart in front of my bed and attached the result of my latest MRI for Dr. Bryanston.

I kept staring at her tail as Mom asked the dreaded question. “You know what is taking so long?” 

“I’m sure it’s prepping the OR, Mrs. Emerson,” Colby said. “Nothing to worry about. Dr. Bryanston will be here shortly.”

Colby’s eyes flickered to me, flashed her grin—only for her favorite patients—and winked before she turned and flounced out of the room.

My mother sighed. 

“Relax, look for a cheesecake recipe, something that your family can enjoy.”

“Haha, funny.”

Colby wasn’t the only one with a tail. There were others, too. Some had cat ears, others owned a mean pair of ram horns. One guy even had an eagle beak, but they were scarce. These human-creatures walked among the ordinary folk of Tacoma, Washington and now Atlanta. Not a single word escaped my lips about what I could see, especially to Francis and Daniel Emerson, my adoptive parents.

Faint bells chimed. I closed my eyes for a brief second before opening them. Oh, yeah, I forgot about the orbs of silver bright light that appeared with the tails and ears. The faint ringing of the bells followed whenever these specks of lights soared above me. Their brightness enhanced the headaches, so I made it my mission to ignore them. The tiny speck flew past Dr. Bryanston, trailing into the room. “You ready, Sophie?”

Book Review of Forever Winter by Amber Daulton

My Review

What if everything went wrong on your special day? What would you do?

Literally everything goes wrong on Susanna’s wedding day from the weather to the dress and more, and although it was entertaining to see how she would get through the next obstacle, what I loved most was Camden’s loving, unshakable support. He is everything you would want in a partner, and seeing how they lean on each other during each new trial was very sweet.

Although short, the plot was satisfying for a novella and I really liked the characters. This is a great read for any weather, sunshine or snow, and worth a read for those who love sweet regency stories.

My rating: 4.5 stars

Book Review of Hometown by Wendy Rich Stetson

My Review

Two different men. Two different lifestyles. An impossible choice.

Who’s now a fan of Wendy Rich Stetson? This gal! I just love the way the author writes. The details immersed me in the story. The characters were layered so well and dusted with fine powder. Several intense scenes had me holding my breath, and the rest had me swooning. The romance was built up very well, and I found myself looking forward to each new chapter.

Did I just add this author to my 1-click list? I sure did! I loved this book and I’m looking forward to more.

My rating: 5 stars
