Christmas Came Early

...for some wonderful peeps.

It's an early Christmastime for me as a giver because I have the awesome privilege of giving prizes to winners who participated in last week's FB event and the Preorder only Swag Bundle giveaway.

Kym Young won the Confessions series.

Deneale K McElhaney Williams won Secret Lilies.

Sheena-Kay Graham won the Participant Ebook Bundle.
The winner of the Preoder Exclusive Swag Bundle Giveaway is...
Wait, so what do they win? Enjoy the pic of the goodies :-)
Oh yeah, the winner is Stacey Ferguson!

It was so much fun doing the FB event, being so anxious and excited on DOBB release day, and then starting to see a few reviews hit the scene, like this one:

Degrees of Being Boss is a sexy age gap romance that is full of heat and suspense. This is the first book that I've read by this author but it won't be the last. I found the story to be easy to follow and it kept my attention from start to finish. The story dealt with death and grief so it was emotional in places, but it was balanced very well with the romance and suspense storylines, so you were left feeling happy.

Zephyr has recently got out of a relationship where he was betrayed by his ex, so he's in no rush to get involved again. But when he ends up rescuing Bailey from a Russian hit man he can't help being drawn into the attractive widow's life. Bailey lost her husband two years ago, and now her best friend has been brutally murdered. While Zephyr helps her to stay safe from the murderers, the couple grow closer. But they are both strong dominants - so who will end up being the boss?

It was great to read an age gap story where the heroine was significantly older than the hero rather than the other way around. Zephyr was in his early thirties and Bailey was in her late forties, but it actually worked and their relationship felt realistic. I really liked both characters, especially Bailey, it made a nice change to have a strong heroine who showed that you can still be sexy and have fun once you're past your twenties and thirties. I really enjoyed this book so it definitely gets five fabulous stars!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

*Yeah, this warmed my heart :-)

How's about an excerpt of intrigue to whet your appetite?

*After bringing up the main screen on Cyn’s mobile, a notification showed that there was one voicemail message ready to be listened to. She smiled, relieved. As usual, Cynthia must have realized all too late her phone hadn’t made it with her, wherever the hell she’d gone.

“What silly message did you leave this time?”

After the second time Cyn left her phone at Bailey’s house, they had exchanged phone passcodes. Bailey thought it was a best friend thing. After all, they didn’t hide anything from each other. But Cyn turned it into something fun by leaving riddles for Bailey to figure out in order to meet up and return her phone. Or just to say, “Miss you! Oh, and that stupid phone, too. I think it likes you more than me. Just give it to me at Precedent tonight.”

She entered the passcode and gasped when Britney’s voice croaked through, tear-filled and shaking with fear. “Auntie Cyn! I shouldn’t have called you. Please don’t come. Avoid Parish Hills altogether. They, they, the man—oh my God! He’s coming back. Please, I swear I don’t know! Don’t—”*

Passions ignite when Dom and Domme collide and they discover there are many degrees to being boss.
He let go of her and walked around the table to stand in front of her. He offered his hand and she took it. A sizzling jolt rushed her body as he yanked her to her feet and slammed her flush to him, with nothing but fabric keeping them apart. One of his arms curled around her, his palm resting low on her back. The other cupped the back of her neck.
“Bailey.” He dipped his lips within a hair’s breadth of her ear. “I. Want. You. Can you listen and obey?”

IWSG and Ninja Alex

It's the first Wednesday of the month so you know what that means: IWSG. Time to air out some of those insecurities. Well, before I do, I want to make sure you know to click here to review the deets for IWSG and to visit other participants.

Now, on to my insecurity:
With DEGREES OF BEING BOSS releasing soon, this is sooooooo very true. But not only is it true for this release, it's a true feeling about all my books. Although I am passionate about the writing and really enjoy putting the final product together and making it available to the public, I am a total ruin when it comes to marketing. I will sing to the mountain tops about other people's books (that's a hint to what's coming next in a bit lol!!) but not my own. That is something I really need to work on.
Preorder #DOBB: Amazon | KoboAll Romance ebook

Speaking of screaming from the mountaintops about someone else's story, Ninja Alex has some great news!

CassaStar, the first book in the Cassa trilogy by Alex J. Cavanaugh, is on sale through December 5 for just .99 cents on Amazon

CassaStar by Alex J. Cavanaugh – Amazon Best Seller!
Science fiction - space opera/adventure
EBook ISBN 978-0-9827139-3-8 Reg. $2.99 – now just .99 cents!

About CassaStar
To pilot the fleet’s finest ship…

Few options remain for Byron. A talented but stubborn young man with a troubled past and rebellious attitude, his cockpit skills are his only hope. Slated to train as a Cosbolt fighter pilot, Byron is determined to prove his worth and begin a new life as he sets off for the moon base of Guaard.

Much to Byron’s chagrin the toughest instructor in the fleet takes notice of the young pilot. Haunted by a past tragedy, Bassa eventually sees through Byron's tough exterior and insolence. When a secret talent is revealed during training, Bassa feels compelled to help Byron achieve his full potential.

As war brews on the edge of space, time is running short. Byron requires a navigator of exceptional quality to survive, and Bassa must make a decision that could well decide the fate of both men. Will their skills be enough as they embark on a mission that may stretch their abilities to the limit?

“…calls to mind the youthful focus of Robert Heinlein’s early military sf, as well as the excitement of space opera epitomized by the many Star Wars novels. Fast-paced military action and a youthful protagonist make this a good choice for both young adult and adult fans of space wars.” - Library Journal

M Pax Bringing The Rifters: The Reader

So if you haven't gotten in on The Rifters series by M Pax, you are missing out on some great story telling. I've already devoured - erm - read The Rifters and The Initiate and am excited for The Reader.
Now, let's focus on the latest in this series...The Reader!

About The Reader
With the rift closed for the season and no more monsters to fight, Daelin Long gets bored as librarian in the podunk town of Settler, Oregon. A job interview and her brother’s arrival present a tempting opportunity to escape, until her brother and her best friend, a ghost, disappear.
While Daelin searches for them, more mysteries pile up: dead people coming back to life, portraits of the town founders replaced with strange white trees, and people on the other side of the rift returning. It’s impossible. The portal that allows monsters from other universes to come to Earth is sealed until next summer.
The Rifters, a secret group protecting our world, believe the troubles are nothing more than the tantrums of an offended ghost. Daelin disagrees. If she’s right, the evil hell-bent on destroying Earth has new technology making the rift more deadly.
Before the monster summons the next apocalypse, Daelin must find it and destroy it.

Book 3 in the Rifter series.
