The New Reign
Of Light and Darke Book 1
by M.L. Ruscsak
Genre: Epic Fantasy
 
Read It before you see It. Coming soon to Cinema!!!
Eighteen years ago, Princess Nisha became an orphan just days after her birth.
Her parents and all of those with Fey blood are all gone – consumed
by a fire that none had been able to stop. Or at least this is what
is told, this is what is spoken aloud. Truth? Perhaps.
But these are words Nisha has never trusted, couldn’t trust since they
have never sounded quite right. Yet, not even her beloved aunt ever
believed her when she questioned the events of that night.
No one believed her when she had turned thirteen and she became the
queen of the Under Kingdom. They didn’t trust her when her powers and
natural abilities began to grow to frightening results. That was fine
if they didn’t want to believe her then – once she was home and
crowned Queen of Darke, then she would show them. Once she was Queen
then she would find every answer that she had ever wanted.
It wouldn’t matter who or what stood in her way, for she would show them
why she should be feared. She would show them what was created when
her parents were stolen from her.
For she is Nisha and she is the daughter of the darkness.

You know what has come to be but do you know where it began?
Before Nisha. Before Adrianna. Before the countries even had names, there

one.
Primitiva was born the second daughter of the royal house
of Lunaista. She was born for greatness. Born to be the first as her
name suggested. If she stayed on her safe little star she would
either die without ever knowing her true potential or be forced into
marriage. Neither appealed to her.
A vision told her the
truth. Death would come for her if she stayed. Leaving her only child
under the cover of darkness she did the unthinkable and dove into the
abyss. Somewhere out here was her destiny. Somewhere she would find a
way to help her sister survive.
Somehow the child that she saw
in her vision would be born. That child would one day rule both
Pallas and unify the Star Cities. She just had to make sure the
bloodlines for that that birth would come forth- even if it meant
turning her back on all that she had ever known.

Bait – Book Tour and Giveaway

Bait
Dangerous Distractions Book 2
by Samantha Keith
Genre: Romantic Suspense
 
There are good guys, and then there are highly trained good guys—the kind
who make the world a safer, sexier place . . .
Former military and ex-FBI agent Ethan Worth is searching for a new way to
serve and protect. On a break in Beaufort, North Carolina, he just
may have found it. It starts with saving a tipsy damsel in distress
from a shady troublemaker. But it ends with the surprisingly sober
beauty outraged by his rescue. That’s all Ethan needs for his
expert instincts to kick into high gear . . .
Riley Jones is back in Beaufort for one reason only: to find her missing
best friend, Hanna. If that means using herself as bait for the kind
of guy who’d prey on a vulnerable young woman, so be it. She
doesn’t need a rugged knight in shining armor like Ethan
distracting her, and she doesn’t want his help. But it turns out
she needs it. And together, as the heat between them rises, so does
the danger. Until both their lives are on the line . . .

contract comes in to kill Lana Vanderpoel, the sultry, charismatic
heiress and billionaire’s daughter. She’s way too sexy to end up
at the wrong end of a silencer. So Cal takes the job—and starts
planning how to get Lana to safety while he unearths who’s behind
the threat . . .
Lana only knows she’s been kidnapped—and she’ll fight tooth and nail
against whoever has snatched her from her life. Her stern-faced
captor sends a tremor of ice through her veins, yet a thrill lies
beneath her unease. He’s dark and dangerous, his body ripped,
honed, and capable. But lust isn’t the same as trust—and whether
or not she can believe what Cal’s telling her, there’s at least
one person close to Lana who wants her dead . . .

A Different Kind of Fire – Book Tour and Giveaway

A Different Kind of Fire
by Suanne Schafer
Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance
 
Ruby Schmidt has the talent, the drive, even the guts to enroll in art
school, leaving behind her childhood home and the beau she always
expected to marry. Her life at the Academy seems heavenly at first,
but she soon learns that societal norms in the East are as
restrictive as those back home in West Texas. Rebelling against the
insipid imagery woman are expected to produce, Ruby embraces bohemian
life. Her burgeoning sexuality drives her into a life-long love
affair with another woman and into the arms of an Italian baron. With
the Panic of 1893, the nation spirals into a depression, and Ruby’s
career takes a similar downward trajectory. After thinking she could
have it all, Ruby now wonders how she can salvage the remnants of her
life. Pregnant and broke, she returns to Texas rather than join the
queues at the neighborhood soup kitchen.
Set against the Gilded Age of America, a time when suffragettes fight for
reproductive rights and the right to vote, A Different Kind of Fire
depicts one woman’s battle to balance husband, family, career, and
ambition. Torn between her childhood sweetheart, her forbidden
passion for another woman, the nobleman she had to marry, and
becoming a renowned painter, Ruby’s choices mold her in ways she
could never have foreseen.
 
 
 
 
Suanne Schafer, born in West Texas at the height of the Cold War, finds it
ironic that grade school drills for tornadoes and nuclear war were
the same: hide beneath your desk and kiss your rear-end goodbye. Now
a retired family-practice physician whose only child has fledged the
nest, her pioneer ancestors and world travels fuel her imagination.
She originally planned to write romances, but either as a consequence of a series of
failed relationships or a genetic distrust of happily-ever-after, her
heroines are strong women who battle tough environments and intersect
with men who might—or might not—love them.
Suanne completed the Stanford University Creative Writing Certificate program.
Her short works have been featured in print and on-line magazines
(Bête Noire; Brain, Child; Empty Sink Publishing; and Three
Line Poetry) and anthologies: (Night Lights; Graveyard; 166 Palms;
and Licked). Her debut women’s fiction novel, A Different
Kind of Fire, explores the life of Ruby Schmidt, a nineteenth century
artist who escapes—and returns—to West Texas. Suanne’s next
book explores the heartbreak and healing of an American physician
caught up in the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
