The
Secret of Dunhaven Castle

 

Cate
Kensie Mysteries Book 1

 

by
Nellie H. Steele

 

Genre:
Cozy Mystery

 

 

How
in the world could she now own a castle?

 

Shy,
introverted Dr. Cate Kensie never imagined that she would inherit a
beautiful, and oddly quirky, castle nestled in the picturesque
Scottish Highlands. Truthfully, she was sure that she didn’t have
any family left after her parents died in a car accident several
years before, but then she had gotten the phone call, and her entire
world had turned upside down.
 

 

That
was when she discovered that she had family in Scotland, and her
distant family member, Gertrude MacKenzie, had passed away, leaving
her Dunhaven Castle and a golden timepiece with the mysterious phone
call: ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR TIME.

 

Soon
after she leaves the only life she’s ever known in the US with her
four-legged best friend, the adorable Riley, she quickly finds that
owning this castle is not the fairytale she expected. Mysterious
events occur that leave Cate wondering if her new home is haunted or
if she’s losing her mind.

 

Will
Cate be able to unravel the mysteries of Dunhaven Castle before it’s
too late? Or will the secrets be too much for Cate to handle?

 

Find
out if Cate can uncover the secrets her new home holds in 
The
Secret of Dunhaven Castle

If
you could go back in time and clear your family’s name, would you?

 

Dr.
Cate Kensie, now known as Lady Catherine Kensie, the mistress of
Dunhaven Castle, still can’t believe her life. Somehow, moved to
Scotland, inherited a castle that’s more than meets the eye, and is
the proud–and sometimes reluctant– owner of an amazing family
heirloom. But there’s a secret Cate must protect about her new
life, a secret that no one but Jack Reid, the estate manager, knows
of.
 

 

As
Cate learns more about her new home, she discovers that in 1856 there
was a murder at Dunhaven and non-other than her own ancestor,
Randolph MacKenzie, was accused and convicted of the crime. However,
the more she learns about the murder at Dunhaven, the more confusing
things become. All of the evidence is there, but the answers still
don’t add up.

 

Will
Cate have the courage to dive into a centuries-old murder to clear
her family’s name? Or will she find out the hard way that sometimes
it’s best to leave the past in the past where it can’t hurt you?

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve

 

by
Angela Stevens

 

Genre:
Historical Fantasy

 

 

A
childless couple’s lives are changed forever by the miraculous
discovery of a little girl entombed in ice on the Langjökull
glacier.
 

 

1870:
A bleak Christmas Eve night is made all the more pitiful by the
recent death of a baby. Having buried five stillborn girls in shallow
graves next to the croft, Rebekka becomes captivated by a
storyteller’s tale of the Icelandic hidden people.

 

 

 

Finnur,
will do anything to restore his wife’s happiness, even if it means
encouraging her decline into madness. But when the impossible
fairytale turns into a reality, the couple’s impulsive decision to
foster the child from the ice, is met with fear and superstition, and
threatens the well-being of the whole farmstead.

 

 

 

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve is an enchanting and compelling story
of desperation and need. Reminiscent of The Snow Child and The Secret
of Lost Stones, it’s painfully human, yet full of hope,
unconditional love, and magic.

 

 

 

If
you enjoy the magical realism of Melissa Payne and the charming fairy
tale style of Ruth Hogan then you will fall in love with Angela
Stevens’s lyrical and emotional storytelling.
 

 

**Only
.99 cents until Dec 7th!!**

Angela
Stevens is an Amazon International Bestselling Romance Author. She
also writes Contemporary fantasy and magical realism under her pen
name Sadie Collins

 

Her
5 book debut series, Hockey Punk, is a sports romance series set
around her adopted town near DC and revolves around her favorite
sport of ice hockey. Writing in both contemporary romance and
contemporary fantasy genres, Angela portrays gritty characters with
emotionally charged plots and is not afraid to tackle difficult
social issues in her fiction. If you pick up one of her romances, you
may have to order an extra supply of tissues, but Angela Stevens will
always deliver you a HEA.

 

In
2020 Angela Stevens rebranded her Fantasy collection and put them
under a new pen name–Sadie Collins.

 

Sadie
Collins writes contemporary fantasy. The emphasis is on character and
emotion and she has a fascination with folklore and bending the what
ifs…

 

Her
six book Vargr Clan Series combines Lycan myth and Native American
lore.

 

Rebekka
and the Unwashed Child of Eve is a new venture into a new genre, and
Angela and Sadie argued as to who should get their name on the front
cover. Ultimately, Angela won out, as she claimed that Sadie did not
exist when she first wrote the book. Sadie is still sulking, and at
some time in the future there may be a mutiny. In all honesty, this
book might need a third pen name, but it came down to the fact that
Angela already has more than she can handle without splitting her
personality further. If only Angela could pull off a stunt like
Finnboga in the story, and cleave herself in two, the ‘team’
could be twice as efficient.

Picture
me sitting serenely at my desk surrounded by my four-legged office
assistants. The dog warms my feet, and the cat provides the purr-fict
background music. I sip hot tea, sift through handwritten notes, and
place fingers on the keyboard as thoughts take shape. Such is the joy
of writing.

 

As
a child, I took a book everywhere—to family dinners, to doctor’s
offices, and of course to bed. Years later, a newspaper article
inspired me to put pen to paper and submit my thoughts—my words—to
the editor. Before I knew it, I was writing weekly columns and blogs.
Then came a book co-written with my dog. (What? Doesn’t everyone do
that?)
Now
I’m living a dream I never knew I had—writing cozy animal
mysteries featuring a dog and cat who talk to their owner. If a dog
can write a book, surely animals can communicate. Naturally, my
office assistants help with the dialogue. And, yes, they are angling
to be listed as co-authors.
By
the way, if you can’t find me, I’m traveling in the UK doing
research for my next mystery—don’t judge.

Becoming Human

 

by Amy Michelle
Carpenter

 

Genre: YA Science
Fiction

 

 

A
redneck boy. An Earth-obsessed alien. And a robotic girl… Three
wildly different teenagers must work together, and accept one
another, to conserve humanity.

 

A
breathtaking debut with Southern charm, whimsical worlds, and
meet-cuteness, for fans of Marie Lu and Lois Lowry.
 

 

Carter
doesn’t believe in aliens. And he certainly doesn’t defend his dad’s
claims that they exist, even if they aired on national television.
But then, the girl he’s falling for starts doing strange things,
magical things, things that seem a bit out of this world.

 

Kokab
hungers to be a Perfect in a world where her emotions are her
greatest flaw. But when her planet faces extinction, her sympathy
makes her the best ambassador to persuade humans to accept her
people. Failure means invasion, but success means she will never
become a Perfect. Ags dreams of graduating from the Academy and
becoming a guardian of Earth.

 

Obsessed with all things human,
she’s eager to spend time on the unique planet. But when she uncovers
an impending invasion, she’s willing to lose everything, including
herself, to stop it.

 

“Human
and alien, complex and sweetly personal, Carpenter’s thoughtful world
blends sci-fi with coming of age as three unique worlds collide. This
book will make you laugh, make you fall in love, and then make you
re-evaluate what it means to be human.”

day, it’s hidden under my bed, where (trust me) it will remain.
Gems from it, however, launched several series in my galaxy-wide
universe of stories. From childhood, I was the victim of an
overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from my
mother. From my father, I got a healthy respect for mechanical
things. Small wonder I write Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with
misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and
warriors who purr.

I’m
a Native Texan, born and raised close to the heart of the great Lone
Star State. I was born in January of ‘89 and was able to grow up
during a great time. I honestly don’t consider myself a Millennial,
and really dislike that title. I’m a part-time secretary and a
full-time mother and wife, as well as a Lupus Warrior.

 

Having
Lupus means living my life indoors, and the sun is my arch-nemesis,
my personal kryptonite. I want to leave a legacy behind, something my
kids could one day look back on and say, “yeah my mom did that.”

 

Thanks
to the encouragement of friends and family, I found a passion for
writing paranormal romance books. Anything in the realm of fantasy
usually suits my novels and tends to be able to reach a large
audience in multiple genres. Most of my story ideas come to me in the
most unexpected times and places, such as my dreams. They will plague
me nonstop until I sit down and write it out.

 

I
like to explore new types of characters such as Sandmen and
Boogeymen, for example. I enjoy creating all the facets of their own
worlds, such as in A Sandman’s Forbidden Love.

 

God
has blessed me with success that I never imagined was possible, which
allows me the freedom to explore and create with intense focus in
paranormal fiction. Now, I know Shifters aren’t real but Angels are
another story. So Angels are also a part of my focus and research. I
will often sit on the computer doing extensive research on both
Sandmen and Angels, trying to learn as much as possible about them.

 

In
addition to fiction, I create Art Journals that are cross
generational from thirteen to ninety years young. My goal, with these
types of books, is to reach people who need that extra encouragement
and quiet reflective stillness that journaling can bring into their
lives.

Trouble
on Main Street

 

Sugar
Mountain Book 1

 

 

A
cozy mountain town, a sweet romance, and a secret society of sneaky
women…
 

 

The
sleepy hamlet of Sugar Mountain harbors a secret society of women.
Don’t misunderstand—the society itself is not secret—it’s the
true nature of the group that is hush-hush.
 

 

Sugar
Mountain is the kind of charming village that tourists adore. If you
like small-town charm, quirky shops, and local art, this is the place
for you. But when a blood smeared package shows up at the post office
and it appears to be linked to a scheme that threatens Heidi
Collinsworth’s historic home, the town takes on a sinister vibe.
Heidi would lay odds that slimy Mayor Winslow is involved, but even
with the enquiring skills of The Sugar Mountain Ladies Historical
Society at work, proof is scarce.
 

 

The
new guy in town, Adam Williams, is determined not to get involved in
Sugar Mountain’s business. His last job in a big city planning
office ruined his life, but Heidi needs his help. No matter how hard
he tries to stay detached, Adam finds himself eyeball deep in Heidi’s
problems, as well as the needs of her teenage son and a homeless
dog.
 

With
conflicting theories abound and tensions running high, it’s up to
the ladies of the society to don disguises and go undercover. If
they’re not careful, the town may fall to a wrecking ball, Heidi
may fall for Adam, and the secret society will be exposed.


Meet
the cast of colorful characters in this charming and zany
introduction to a whole new series of romantic, cozy mysteries!

The
Gift

 

Realm
Wardens Series Book 2

 

 

To
prevent the rise of evil, rules must be broken.

 

The
assassin, Niviel Darke, is the best in all of Totriga Realm and
several others. His services are expensive but worth it. The agency
he works for has one rule: protect the client list or die.

 

The
dryad spends his days tending his forest and nights watching the
stars. Occasionally, he would use his magic to help visitors bearing
gifts. He too lived by one rule: never harm another living creature.
Ever.

 

The
assassin and the dryad’s paths cross when a very powerful man,
Drummond Amberaull, informed Niviel he has the assassin’s client
list. If he wants to protect the list and his life, Niviel must
journey to the Dwarf Kingdom for answers. To keep his magic from the
High King’s nefarious intentions, the dryad must join
Niviel.

 

Niviel’s
plans for the year didn’t entail a five month journey, but he must
protect his client list. The dryad only wishes to remain with his
forest but the uncertainty of the kings desires for him frightens him
more than leaving his life behind. Both are faced with a choice
neither wants to make.

Santa teaches them that a Christmas miracle doesn’t always require heavenly intervention

Saturday, December 19th, 2020

 

The
Last Christmas

 

by
Seelie Kay

 

Genre:
Contemporary Holiday Romance Comedy

 

 

At
Christmas time, everyone deserves a miracle!

 

 

David
Wright is dying from cancer. He is not expected to see another
Christmas. At least that’s what the medical professionals say.
Fortunately, Santa begs to differ. After all, modern medicine is
nothing more than a best guess. Santa believes anything is possible
until you give up.

 

 

When
Santa tells David’s wife, Joan, that heaven is full and she has to
keep her husband alive, she is beside herself. She has no medical
skills. How can she save anyone’s life? Set your skepticism aside
as Santa embraces a family already mourning their father’s terminal
diagnosis and teaches them that a Christmas miracle doesn’t always
require heavenly intervention. Sometimes, all it takes is a family
with enough love to create their own. As Santa says, a true miracle
is when love combines with action to get the desired results. And
only humans are capable of that.

 

 

Will
Santa’s words fall on deaf ears? Or will Team Wright find a way to
save their father’s life?

Snippet:

 

Striding down the carpeted hallway to Suite 1455, Erin was suddenly aware that the man was right behind, his steps quiet but determined. 

“Excuse me?” she said, whipping around to confront him, senses on alert, placing her hand on the grip of her 9-mm Glock in her handbag. “Are you following me?”

“I’m beginning to wonder if you’re following me,” he said.

“That’s ridiculous. I’m in front of you. How could I possibly know which office you’re headed to?”

“Touché,” he said with an amused smile. “You must be a detective.”

“And you probably read too many crime novels,” she retorted, surprised at the sassy response coming out of her mouth. “Are you at the San Francisco FBI field office for research for a term paper?”

He gave her an amused smile, but there was a hint of danger behind his eyes while he assessed her. “Something like that.”  

“Maybe you shouldn’t have pressed that 13th incognito floor,” Erin suggested. “You’ll probably have little luck since visitors need an appointment to see any of the agents who occupy these offices.”

He pursed his lips and nodded. “I see. Thanks for the tip.”

Why did it seem like this too handsome dude was laughing at her?

His footsteps continued to trail her instead of turning down the intersecting hallway to the other wing of offices. 

Erin tried not to glare before she spun around on her heel, purposely ignoring him. 

When she reached FBI Supervisor Howell’s office, Erin pushed open the door and greeted the office manager. “Agent Steele here to see Supervisor Howell. I have an appointment.”

“Yes, he’s expecting you,” Laura Tidwell, the office manager said, punching a button on the intercom while she pressed a finger against the rim of her black-framed glasses. “Agent Steele has arrived, sir.”

A male voice that sounded like a truck filled with gravel said, “Send Steele in.”

Erin tried not to let her sweaty palms show as she crossed the room. A door closed behind her and she craned her neck to glance over her shoulder. 

The man who had shared the elevator with her was now in the FBI office. He had followed her!

She is the third child and currently lives with her parents, younger sibling and border collie called Izzy. From the age of ten she started writing her own short stories for her family.

When
it came time at school to consider career paths she looked at
becoming a scientist or lawyer but quickly changed her mind when she
realised she wouldn’t love it as much as writing. So she decided to
devote all her time to dreaming up stories she could share her
writing with more than just her family and friends. This inspired her
to write her first novel Hell’s
Daughter.
