Welcome Guest Jean Grant to My Blog!

A little about this trilogy…

Each book is a standalone, but they can be read in or out of order. The trilogy spans 1263 – 1322 A.D. from Vikings to Scottish Independence to upheaval in England. Each story tells a tale of a MacCoinneach family member “gifted but afflicted” with a mystical ability that comes at a cost: to heal but lose your own breaths in return, to feel auras/lifebloods but to feel others’ pain, and to see the future but be unable to prevent the visions unless refraining from touch. Conquering Norse, Scottish lore, Ancient mystics, and invading English…the trilogy has a bit of everything. Can our mystical family hone their gifts for good, escape curses, discover mercy, find home, and find love?

Interview with Author John Selby

Thanks for joining me today, John! Let’s get to know you and your writing a little bit better. How did you get interested in writing fiction? 

I started writing in 7th grade.  At the time, not only was I being bullied mercilessly, but I was also very bored during classes.  So I started writing during classes and breaks.  I was a Star Trek fan, so naturally, I created my own version.  I carried around a large loose-leaf notebook with me wherever I went in school.  Over the next two years, I think I wrote about 600 pages in tiny handwriting, single-spaced.  It would probably be well over 1,000 pages if printed in a book.  I think I still have it somewhere, but I doubt even I can read my handwriting from then.

An Interview with Dr. Lillian Morgan From The Warrior’s Progeny

If love dies, can it be reborn…only stronger?

Thanks so much for joining me today on my blog! Let’s get to know you a little bit. What’s your name?

Hello, my name is Dr. Lillian Morgan, but my friends call me Lilly.

It’s great to meet you. What are you a doctor of?

I am lucky enough to be a pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon, and work with kids all day.

That must be hard, working with sick children and scared parents.

It can be at times. The goal is to keep everyone calm and worry about things when we actually need to worry about them. Children are amazing resilient beings, and the parents of a child warrior is something to behold.

Book Review of You Stole My Heart by Kristal Dawn Harris

My Review

I’m a sucker for this type of story. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect when I opened this novella, but I’m happy I stumbled across it. The novella was not only well written, but it had a story that both broke my heart and warmed it at the same time. Short and sweet with realistic and loveable characters right off the bat, I really enjoyed it!

My rating: 5 stars

Book Review of A Foreman’s Unplanned Bride by Blythe Carver

My Review

I loved this one! Molly and Lewis were always at each other’s throats, but they were true and they were genuine. Every thought, every emotion was laid out on the table for the other to see, which only added to the richness of their relationship.

Each character, even the side characters, were written with such depth and detail. I couldn’t help but love every one. This quickly became one of my favorite enemies to friends to lovers story that I’ve read.

This is the second book I’ve read in this series, but I’m itching for more!

My rating: 5 stars

New Release from Mona Sedrak

From the Author

Gravity is a heart-warming story of two individuals from remarkably differing backgrounds that are inexplicably drawn to one another, forming a strong friendship and falling in love–– despite the odds against them. The story depicts the beautiful Middle Eastern culture I was raised in and its many traditions as well as some of its challenges. Readers will identify with this story, no matter their background because it speaks to and awakens the human heart.

Gravity is about tolerance, acceptance, understanding, and forgiveness. Finally, it is a story of love and hope. When I started writing Gravity several years ago, I couldn’t have predicted how relevant it would be today. At the end of the day, I want readers to understand that although we may be different, as members of the human race, our similarities out-weigh our differences and love is the universal language that binds us.

New Release from Patricia McAlexander and My Book Review of Stranger in the Storm

stranger in the storm book cover

My Review

When happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy tales and romance novels, is it possible for Janet to find the man her heart was meant to love?

After Janet Mitchell flees a previous relationship and encounters the fierce rain and wind of a hurricane, fate steps in, or rather a trees falls, and smashes the bed of Wes Corbett’s truck. The incident brings them together, fate tying a lasso around them even in the face of terrifying danger.

This book was seriously awesome! The author did an incredible job at coaxing the reader into the story and keeping them there. The details were amazing, the story intriguing, and the suspense kept my eyes glued to the story, flipping page after page until I lost track of time. I loved that Janet is a romance writer, and the way she met Wes was just like a romance novel in real life.

Looking for a suspense novel with an interesting storyline and great romance? Stranger in the Storm ticks all the right boxes. Highly recommend!

My rating: 5 Stars
