Fiamette Jurato is on a mission: to fix her broken past. She’s teamed up with the world-famous DJ, Maximillian, to search for the ex-lover who can help her put all the pieces back together. There’s only one tiny glitch...he’s been dead for over two hundred years. 

As a healer for all creatures supernatural, she’s no stranger to navigating the impossible maze of magical complications. But getting lost in the magic won’t be the problem…finding her way back home will. 


Author Melissa Lummis writes new age suspense in a fantasy setting, as well as steamy romance in almost all its forms. If you don’t like hot sex scenes, mystery, and suspense, or you’re easily offended by the occasional strong language or exploring unconventional ideas, then her books are not for you. Her books include Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, and Contemporary Romance. She lives in rural Virginia with her biker babe husband, two crazy kids, an Alaskan Malamute, and a myriad of forest creatures. And despite the rumors, she still believes the universe conspires to help an adventurer.

HIS LEADING LADY
by Maggie Dallen

Genre: Contemporary Romance 


Nothing less than a Hollywood romance would do . . .
Alice is calm, cool, and aloof—except for the night she meets her new neighbor Dr. Nicholas Bale—aka Hot Doc. The chemistry between them might be through the roof but that doesn’t mean she’s going to let him into her life. Having been seen at her most vulnerable, she vows to have nothing to do with the sexy doctor. After all, Alice learned long ago that love only leads to hurt.
Nicholas is smitten at first sight with the gorgeous, mysterious redhead upstairs. But between her attempts to push him away and the even bigger wall around her heart, the dashing doctor is having a hard time getting close to the sensitive beauty. Then he glimpses the emotion in her eyes as she watches Fred and Ginger whirl across the screen and he’s determined to uncover just what it will take to dance his way in to her heart . . .



Maggie Dallen is a huge fan of happily-ever-afters. She writes contemporary and YA romance and has been known to rewrite the endings to classic love stories to ensure that they end on a happy note. In Maggie's version, Ingrid Bergman does not get on the plane. She lives in Northern California and works at a yarn store to support her knitting addiction.

Wicked Kiss Book Tour & Giveaway


This morning, I have a new paranormal romance in our book spotlight!  Check out Wicked Kiss by Rebecca Zanetti and enter for a chance to win a copy of the book in the book tour giveaway at the end of this post!

WICKED KISS
Realm Enforcers #4
by Rebecca Zanetti
Genre: Paranormal Romance



Working as an informant for the DEA, Victoria Monzelle is used to living on the edge. But she’s not a big fan of getting kidnapped. And definitely not by a bunch of bad boy witches with fancy-colored fire to shoot at people. So when Adam Dunne shows up and claims to be a witch enforcer, she’s not going to put her life in his hands based on his word, no matter how smooth and smart and beautifully Irish his words sound. But on the run from a tribunal of witches, she isn’t going to make it far . . .
Before she knows it, Adam’s word is all that stands between her and execution. Sophisticated, just-gotta-ruffle-him Adam has vowed to make her his one eternal mate, wild and unpredictable as she is—to save her from a sentence of certain death. But Tori isn’t interested in being anyone’s pity date. And if they think she’s unpredictable now, they should see what’s coming next . . .



New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti has worked as an art curator, Senate aide, lawyer, college professor, and a hearing examiner - only to culminate it all in stories about Alpha males and the women who claim them. She writes contemporary romances, dark paranormal romances, and romantic suspense novels.
Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides in the wild north with her husband, children, and extended family who inspire her every day—or at the very least give her plenty of characters to write about.

Moving Overseas? Check Out These Important Tips


hiker-1607078_640.jpg

Moving overseas can be one of the most exciting, not to mention rewarding, experiences you will ever have in your life. You’ll get to experience new cultures, try new foods and experience a whole new way of living. However, if you’re not prepared for the process, it might give you a few headaches too!

So, if you’ve found the perfect new house for sale and you’re getting ready to move overseas, check out these tips to make the process easier. That way, you can (hopefully) ensure that your new life adventure goes without a hitch:

Declutter. In the months and weeks before you head off for your new life in a far-flung destination, you should make a really strong effort to declutter your possessions. Take an honest look at those shelves of books and DVDs, go through your closet and check out those trinkets to determine what is worth keeping and what you can do without. That way, it’ll be a lot easier, and cheaper to transport your stuff overseas, and if you sell the excess, you’ll even have some ready cash in your pocket to start your move off right.

Hire a Storage Unit.  If, after decluttering, you have a lot of stuff you can’t  bear to part with, and if you plan to return to your home country at some point, hiring a storage unit is a good option. You’ll be able to safely keep your bulky furniture ready for when you need them again, without having to worry about them being damaged, stolen or otherwise ruined.
If you do need a storage unit, be sure to shop around because prices can vary wildly, and you don’t want to be paying over the odds when you’re starting a new life overseas.

Hire a Shipping Container.

Hiring a shipping container is the best way to send your stuff overseas if you plan on sending furniture and other household goods, as well as clothing. Although it might seem expensive, it will almost always be cheaper than starting from scratch at your new home, when you have perfectly good stuff already. Again, it’s best to shop around when hiring a shipping container because there is a lot of competition in the industry, and with a little research, you should be able to minimize your costs.

Get Insurance. When you’re living overseas., even if they have some kind of health service to provide treatment for free, like the NHS in the UK, as a visitor to the country, it is unlikely that you will be eligible, at least when you first arrive, which is why it is vital that you get some insurance in place before you get to your new home.

If you’re moving overseas for a job, be sure to ask your employers if you’re covered by a work policy. If not,  it’s time to make some phone calls to find out what kind of insurance policy will cover you best.

Check Your Passport.  If you’re only moving overseas for a year or two, rather than permanently, you should make sure that your passport will be valid for at least three months from your return date, so that should anything happen and there be a delay in you coming home, you will not face any problems.
 
It’s also a good idea to make a few photocopies of your passport, taking some with you and leaving some back home with a friend or family member, so that if your passport does get lost, you can pretty quickly sort out a new one.

Pack Your Important Documents.

It’s also a good idea to photocopy and pack all of your important documents like your birth certificate, driver’s license, and qualifications, so that you don’t find yourself in a tight spot with the authorities or when trying to apply for a new job

Look Into Visas. As soon as you know you’re moving overseas, you should start looking into visas. The rules and regulations of every country’s visa system is different, and the kind of visa you need will vary depending on what you’re doing and how long you plan to stay in your new country, so you need to absolutely know which one you need if you don’t want to be turned away by customs when you should be starting an exciting new life.

Find Out About Property Regulations.  You should also, as soon as you’ve found your new home overseas, enquire about any property rules or regulations, such as responsibility for maintaining green spaces or paying for services. Some countries have a lot more property regulations than others, and the last thing you want to do is fall foul of them and start your new life out on a bad note with the neighbors.
 
Set Up a Bank Account.  Your new country is obviously pretty important, especially if you’re going to be paying a mortgage for your new home in the area, or working there. It’s always a good idea to contact banks before you move so that you can be sure you meet all the requirements and take all of the necessary paperwork with you. 
 
Notify Companies of Your New Address.

Before you leave, you’ll need to spend some time calling up companies that you’ll still be in contact with when you move, including government agencies, to let them know about your new address, so that you can be sure that any important information you need will get to you in a timely manner.

Get an International Driver's Permit. If you plan to drive overseas, it’s never a bad idea to look into the possibility of getting an International Driver's Permit. Although they aren’t accepted in every country, where they are accepted, they make the process of legally driving a lot easier and get rid of the need for you to carry your passport everywhere you go, which is always a bonus.

Have you moved overseas? Do you have any tips to make the process easier?

Luna Book Tour & $10 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway



I have become a huge science fiction / dystopian fan over the past few years.  I am featuring Luna, a new dystopian novel by Garon Whited, in our book spotlight today!  Check out the book & enter for a chance to win a $10 Amazon Gift Card in the book tour giveaway at the end of this post!

Luna
by Garon Whited
Genre: SciFi, Fantasy, Dystopian

"It's the end of the world, and I have the best seat in the house." 

Armageddon has arrived. It's not as bad as we thought. 

The world is in trouble.
Correction. The world is ending and soon. The last days are coming and humanity is unable to stop it. Naturally, humanity has a backup plan.

Welcome to the Moon, where the air is thin, life is hard, and the Earth isn't fit to live on.
Now, how can we make things better?

Luna is Garon Whited's science fiction and fantasy story of one man surviving the end of the world despite it's many obvious obstacles and his attempt to save some of humanity. 


From the very first line, "Luna" grabs the reader. Where most books start with a world in trouble and ride the story on in to the Last Days, "Luna" starts with the ultimate end of the world and flies forward into the future.

The end of the world has never been quite so entertaining. Crushing despair, soaring hope, and the stubborn determination of humanity all come together in a story told by a man in the middle of it all.

Welcome to the Moon, the new home of humanity.





Garon Whited was supposedly born in either 1969 or 1970; the original birth certificate is suspiciously unavailable and other records do not agree. 

After spending some years in college playing with computers, he finally joined a radical group of jellyfish herding nomads. Having fought zombie dolphins, quasi-corporeal spirits, and brain-sucking mole rats, he is uniquely qualified to write fantastic fiction. His subsequent attempts at professional salsa repairman and ley line salesman met with similar success. He claims to live in Texarkana, on Earth, but people have been known to disagree.
