Meet Me at Sunset
(Evening Island #1)
By Olivia Miles
Women's Fiction/Romance
Paperback & ebook, 324 Pages
February 25, 2020 by Rosewood Press

From USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Miles comes the first in a collection of stand-alone novels set on the fictional shores of Evening Island—just a ferry ride across the lake from Blue Harbor, home to the newest heartwarming series!

The Morgan sisters spent many blissful summers at their family's lake house growing up, but as they grew older, their lives took very different paths.

Hope adores her twin girls, but she doesn't love being a stay-at-home mom. When her workaholic husband doesn't support her career aspirations, she packs up the kids and goes to Sunset Cottage, thinking that some time apart will help her decide what she really wants-but when the life she dreamed of becomes a possibility, she is more torn than ever.

Gemma was supposed to be planning her wedding, not trying to get back deposits. And she was supposed to be finished writing her latest romance novel, not staring at a blank screen. Lost and down on her luck, she heads north to Evening Island, hoping to find the inspiration she needs to fill the page, and maybe, her heart.

Ellie is almost perfectly content living in the house that once belonged to her grandmother, even if it does get a little lonely sometimes. Still, work is steady at her art studio and the island continues to serve as a muse, especially when her first love makes a surprise return.

In the course of a month, the Morgan sisters learn that despite their differences and their personal struggles, they might just have more in common than the old summer cottage that they inherited.

She turned, her shock only compounded by the person she saw standing beside her. “Billy?”

He shook his head, looking at her in wonder. “Well, I’ll be. Heather Taylor. There’s a face I never thought I’d see today.”

She couldn’t agree with that statement more, yet here he was. Billy Davidson, longtime island friend, another one of the summer people who came and went with the change of the season, even if her heart still thought of him long into winter. 

“You here on your own?” he asked when she pulled back, looking up into his hazel eyes that seemed to always grow greener as his skin tanned. 

“I’m here with my sisters,” she said. She hesitated, seeing the question in his eyes. He’d known she’d gotten married, of course. Their mothers had been friends and kept in touch. But now Heather’s mother wasn’t here anymore, so Billy probably hadn’t heard the latest update. And of course, Heather had ensured that her mother never knew. “I’m not sure if you’ve heard that Kim is getting married next month?” Surely, his parents had been invited to the wedding, at least. “It’s just a girls’ trip this time. Like the old days.”

He gave her a sad smile. “I was so sorry to hear about your mother. I still feel bad that I couldn’t make the service. My parents said it was beautiful.”

Heather pulled in a shaky breath and willed herself not to cry. The backs of her eyes prickled nonetheless, and she darted a glance over to the island, fixating on her happy place. Telling herself that for now, for these two weeks, all her problems would be set aside. 

When she looked back up at Billy, he was still grinning at her in that friendly but devilish way that had made her and probably half the other women he ever encountered fall in love with him on the spot. And that’s what she’d done when she was too young to even know what it was called back then. As a little girl, she’d only known that Billy was fun, but when she’d grown older, she started to notice that he was pretty cute too, and as the years past she’d dared to think that one day…

Well, there were lots of dreams back then.

A Bargain of Blood and Gold
Midnight Guardians Book 1
by Kristin Jacques
Genre: Paranormal Romance


A novice hunter with a mission. A five-hundred-year-old vampire with a strong sense of irony. A town plagued by creatures in need of saving.

When Johnathan Newman arrives in Cress Haven, the last thing he expects is for his life to be irrevocably changed. Sent by a clandestine league of vampire hunters to investigate a string of murders, signs point to a vampire lurking amid the townsfolk. Johnathan’s attempt to enlist the locals leads him to an unlikely partnership with Vic, the town's most eligible, enigmatic bachelor.

As the pair work to solve the mystery, Vic’s secrets come back to bite him. Revealed, the vampire fights his attraction to a man trained to destroy him, while Johnathan’s emotions land him in the middle of forbidden desires. Even if Vic isn’t the murderer, how can Johnathan yearn for his natural enemy?

As Vic leads Johnathan into encounters with terrifying beings straight from children’s nightmares, Johnathan learns that not only is the world stranger than he knew, but that those he once trusted have far darker intentions that will place hunter and vampire at the center of a conflict between realms.

Cress Haven holds more sinister secrets than its resident vampire, a secret so great, it could unleash Hell itself.

For fans of Gail Carriger’s Supernatural Society, The Charm of Magpies series by KJ Charles, Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh, and The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee.

A Bargain of Blood & Gold by Kristin Jacques- Chapter 1 Excerpt

1

There was a vampire in Cress Haven, and it was Johnathans duty to snuff it out.

Are you quite certain of this location?Johnathan peered at his traveling companion as

the coach rolled through the unkempt dirt roads. Wilderness surrounded them, the relentless

forests of backcountry Maine muffling the rattle and buck of the wheels that spat up a cloud of

dust in their wake.

Dr. Evans raised an imperious brow, thick white mustache twitching over his mouth.

You have my assurances, Prospective Newman,said the doctor. “The legitimacy of the reports

are thoroughly verified before we assign a man on the case. There is a fiend here, squatting

among the populace. Multiple victims have gone missing. The fiend appears to have a preference

for young ladies. Your task is identification and elimination.

Shouldnt be too difficult.” Johnathan eyed the roll of handwritten instructions, neat pen

scratches detailing all the requisite information he needed for a successful hunt. The towns

population was barely a thousand souls all told at last census. Its somewhat baffling why a

vampire would settle here. One would think a fiend’s peculiarities would quickly pinpoint its

identity among humans.

Careful, Johnathan,said Dr. Evans, catching his attention. The good doctor only used

Johnathan’s first name when he was worried. “A fiend, alone and secluded, possesses a great

deal of cunning and trickery compared to the nests we cleansed in Boston and New York. Be on

your guard and vigilant.

Johnathan blinked. His gaze strayed to the custom-made crossbows lying on the seat

beside Dr. Evans. Most Hunters preferred melee weapons to pin their fast-moving prey, but his

mentor enjoyed the challenge. He could wield the weapon like no other, a master marksman in

archery, skilled at the art of ambushing fiends despite their extraordinary senses. Johnathan

always felt safe with the doctor, unless what he feared was the doctor himself.

That was a circumstance in which hed found himself a time or two or twelve. Dr. Evans

was a mentor, a leader. He was also a killer, and he wouldn’t go easy on Johnathan, no matter

how fond he was of his students.

This assignment couldnt be that dangerous, or the society wouldnt have sent someone

like Johnathan out here. Would they? The more he thought about it, the more certain he was that

Dr. Evans was about to toss him into a pit of vipers. Trial by fire was the truest method of

ascertaining if one was suited for the life.

Sir?The thick wool of Johnathan’s trousers wicked the sweat from his palms.

Dr. Evansexpression softened. You’re at the top of your class, dear boy. I have

complete faith youll turn in a more than adequate performance.There was a twinkle of

sentiment in the older mans eyes. He clapped Johnathan on the shoulder. We shall return in a

month to retrieve you.

A month?” Johnathan sputtered. What if I require extraction before then? Or I

encounter more than a lone fiend?

Affability drained out of the doctors gaze. Adapt. Enlist local aide. Consider this your

graduation ceremony. But if you should find the situation beyond your capability, send word

through post. Our agents will be here within a fortnight.

There was no need for the doctor to clarify further. A call for aid would be considered

failure.

Johnathan swallowed hard, the rumble of the coach accentuating the sensation of the

world sinking out from under him. There was nothing outside except trees surrounded by more

trees, but the coach was slowing. The conveyance rolled to a stop in the thick of the forest, the

setting sun swallowed up by the coniferous treetops, brushing the sky like serrated teeth.

The society has provided you with a generous stipend to cover your expenses,” said the

doctor, “though we suggest you practice frugality. There is a reputable boarding house at the

edge of town for the seasonal woodsmen that should accommodate you.The coach wobbled to

a standstill. Dr. Evans opened the coach door, gesturing with middling patience for Johnathan to

disembark.

The young man hesitated. Its almost dark, sir.

Oh, tosh.” The doctor’s expression darkened. He seized Johnathans arm with surprising

strength for a man his size and stature, before tossing him bodily from the coach. Johnathan’s

battered traveling case followed a moment later, bouncing resignedly to a stop on top of his

boots. The town is two miles down the coach road,” said the doctor. “I suggest you start

walking, lad, before true nightfall.

Without further fanfare, the coachman steered the horses in a wide circle around

Johnathan, kicking off at a fast trot back in the direction they came.

Dr. Evans could have at least left him with a suitable weapon. Even a vial of dead man’s

blood, which slowed a fiend’s ability to heal, wouldn’t be remiss. But part of his trial was to find

weapons of opportunity in a foreign environment, no matter how sparse that environment.

Johnathan tensed, seized with the acute urge to chase down the coach and cling to the

back all the way to Boston. This wouldnt do. For one, Dr. Evans would be terribly disappointed

in him. For another, it was likely they’d toss him right back out here, this time tied at the ankles.

He watched the coach until it rumbled out of sight through the trees before he finally

turned toward Cress Haven. It was alarming how much darker the forest seemed in those spare

moments. Shadows slithered out from between the trees, casting the coach road in intermittent

patches of deep darkness. The sun had firmly given up the sky to dusk, the light rapidly fading

with each passing second. He needed to get moving rather than stand in the middle of the road

like a slab of beef fallen off the butchers wagon.

Johnathan scooped up his valise. The leather case banged against his thigh in time to his

steps, a comforting thump as he picked his way over the pitted dirt road. Stones skittered out

from under his boots. It would be just his luck to twist an ankle in the dark and fall prey to the

local wildlife.

This was to be his final exam? He doubted the assignment would occupy him more than a

fortnight. What would he do for the remaining half of the month? Take up logging, he supposed.

Maybe catch a spot of fishing. Hed heard the fishing in Maine was quite excellent.

That settled it. Hell, in a settlement this small, he would locate the fiend outside of a

week. Yes, this would be his final test, and a vacation to boot.

Caught up in plotting his leisure time, the first howl took him off guard.

Johnathan froze, eyeing the dense forest with unease. He reached for his boot knife as a

second howl split the falling night, an eerie, unnatural sound. Chills rippled under his skin.

What on earth was that? Hed heard the baying of hounds and wolves enough to compare

the two, but this sound matched neither, possessing a quality that spoke to his deep instinct to

flee the hungry dark.

A third howl rose, much closer this time. Something crashed and crackled in the woods a

moment before movement made him jump. Johnathan yelped, covering his head as several

creatures fled the woods right in his path. He didnt recognize them at first, not until a fox

collided with his legs, panic-blind and snapping at Johnathan’s trousers.

He jumped aside, wide-eyed, as a herd of deer, several foxes, skunks, and a badger fled

past him into the woods on the other side of the coach road. He heard a whisper of sound

overhead and glanced up to find the flight extended to winged creatures as well, an assortment of

daytime birds, startled from their roosts, mixed with the hunters of night.

An owl flapped frantically overhead. That worried him.

Owls were not so easily spooked.

Johnathan shifted his stance, knife out and ready as he scanned the trees. A prickling

sensation crawled along his skin. He had the distinct impression of being watched. By what? Had

the vampire come to meet him? Unlikely. Vampires didnt scare wild animals. The undead were

beneath their notice. Only cats reacted to fiends, and it wasnt with fear.

Silence swallowed him up, falling thick and heavy, so that his own breath roared in his

ears. Johnathan stared hard through the trees, trying to pinpoint the source of the disturbance.

A harsh chuffing came from his left, close enough to stir the hair at his collar. Startled, he

whipped around, fear squeezing his lungs. There was nothing there. Panting, he spun in a full

circle, squeezing the hilt of his knife so tight his fingers went numb.

His frantic gaze connected with a glowing set of eyes within the trees. The snarl made his

bladder clench. It was a small miracle he didnt void his waters as the unseen creature suddenly

bounded away. It made no noise as it took off through the bracken, but Johnathan knew it was

gone as the weighted silence dissipated.

It was still several long minutes before the sounds of wildlife filtered back into the night,

now fully fallen, and several minutes more before Johnathan’s footsteps resumed, albeit at a

much faster pace. He didn’t dare return the knife to his boot until his steps carried him past the

first houses of Cress Haven.

“With the bloom of springtime flowers…
comes the opportunity for new beginnings.”

He's an injured firefighter. She bakes the most delightful treats. When their worlds collide will the baker help heal the firefighter with a mix of blueberry muffins and her caring way?

The elegant baker, Hannah Bell, has always lived on Bluestar Island with her family. While still grieving for her father, who died in a fire, she focuses all of her energy on making her dream come true--opening her very own bakery. But when a broken water pipe washes away her carefully laid plans, she's on the verge of losing everything.

New York firefighter Ethan Walker's life is in a tailspin after he's injured on-the-job. When an urgent call detours him to Bluestar Island, he agrees to help his lovable but meddlesome great-aunt. But organizing the island's Spring Fling proves a lot harder than he originally imagined. He needs help...and fast.

Under the magic of Bluestar Island's sea breeze and warm sunshine, Hannah and Ethan must not only face their immediate obstacles but also their own turning points in life. Will they have to do that alone? With a leap of faith and a dash of romance, they might just find the perfect mix to make their dreams come true.

Includes a delicious recipe for The Elegant Baker's Blueberry Crumble Muffin!

“Mom, what’s going on?” He willed her to say everything was all right—that he’d misheard her.

 

“It’s Aunt Birdie. There’s been an accident. She’s at the hospital.”

 

Aunt Birdie was technically his great-aunt, which meant she was getting on in age and a fall could be serious. Aunt Birdie was his mother’s aunt and the only living relative on her side of the family. Aunt Birdie had grown up in Brooklyn, just like him, but when she married, she moved to Bluestar Island just off the Massachusetts coastline. It was a lesser-known island than Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard, but it still had its own charms and distinct folklore.

 

His great-aunt was more than just a fun aunt; she was more like a loving grandmother to him. He remembered as a child visiting Bluestar Island for Christmas and especially for the Fourth of July celebration. He’d even spent part of his summer vacations with Aunt Birdie. They were some of his favorite memories.

 

With great trepidation, he asked, “How bad is it?”

 

“I…I don’t know. Must have just happened. I missed the call. Someone left a generic voicemail saying she fell, but they gave no other details about the extent of her injuries. I tried calling but with all of the rules and regulations, I couldn’t get any details. I’m trying to get a flight home but everything is booked.”

 

The thought of his parents abandoning their once-in-a-lifetime trip, when they didn’t know the seriousness of the situation, didn’t sit well with him. “Mom, hold off on the reservations—”

 

“But I have to be there for her. Aunt Birdie doesn’t have anyone else.” Her voice was filled with worry.

 

“She has me.”

BOOK BLITZ: Distracting the Deputy by Shanna Hatfield @ShannaHatfield #Giveaway @ERomNews #WesternRomance #Contemporary @prismbooktours

 

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Distracting the Deputy
(Summer Creek #4)
By Shanna Hatfield
Western Romance, Christian
Paperback & ebook, 301 Pages
June 22, 2021 by Wholesome Hearts Publishing

Trouble is coming . . . but for whom?

When he’s not evading grabby-handed octogenarians, mentoring troubled teens, or rescuing rascally youngsters from disaster, Deputy Knox Strickland can be found upholding the law in the eastern Oregon region he patrols. He avoids making plans for tomorrow, focusing instead on doing his best today. Then one chance encounter with a beautiful woman in a wheat field turns his world upside down. Knox is left questioning what secrets she’s hiding, and how hard he’ll have to work to scale the fortress she's built around her heart.

Zadie Redmond isn’t like most women. A life spent looking over her shoulder has destroyed the promising future she’d once envisioned. Her days are spent leading hunting and fishing adventures, or teaching tiny ballerinas the proper way to plié. She fills her evenings with do-it-yourself projects while worrying about the day her past catches up with her. In an unexpected moment, the local deputy swoops into her world like a storybook hero and she knows nothing will ever be the same. Zadie will do anything to keep Knox safe from the danger lurking in the shadows, even if it destroys her chance at love.

Will Knox convince Zadie she can trust him with her secrets and her heart?

A sweet romance full of quirky small-town fun, Distracting the Deputy is a story of hope, help, and hanging on to what matters most.

(Affiliate links included.)
For a limited time, the eBook is available at the discounted price of just $2.99.

Excerpt

She rushed out of the store and was loading the pile of groceries into her SUV when a pair of big, tanned hands reached into her cart and lifted five bags, setting them into her vehicle.

“Did you help Mrs. Dunigan?” she asked Knox without looking at him. Even if she hadn’t recognized the hands, his delicious scent pervaded her nose and tickled her senses.

“I think that ol’ girl might have been quite a player back in her day. She kept squeezing my arm as I helped her with her groceries. After I walked her to her car, she pinched my bum. Twice!”

Zadie couldn’t stop the giggle that burst out of her. A picture of Knox trying to help an elderly, frail member of the community only to be accosted by a grabby-handed octogenarian settled in her mind. “Now that’s funny.”

“No, it isn’t! It’s unsettling and unnatural, and it made me feel like a hunk of beef in a butcher’s window.”

“Oh, poor Knox. He’s too handsome for his own good.” Zadie offered him mock sympathy with her lower lip rolled out in an exaggerated pout while batting her eyelashes at him.

He made a growling sound deep in his throat and took a step closer to her. “You keep doing that, and I’ll forget about the promise I made to you in the wheatfield the other night.”

She sucked in her lip, set the last bag in the SUV, and slammed the hatch shut. “That won’t be necessary, Deputy Strickland.”

Knox rolled his eyes. “Back to that are we? Don’t you think, after what we shared, we could be friends?”

“Friends, yes. Anything else, absolutely not.”

BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Two Kinds of US by Sarah Sutton @SarahMaeSutton @ERomNews #Giveaway #YA #Contemporary

 

 


Two Kinds of Us
Love in Fenton County Book 5
by Sarah Sutton
Genre: YA Romance


DIAMONDS MEET ROCK 'N ROLL AND SECRETS MEET THEIR END.

In a life of diamond bracelets and country clubs, I’m the perfect daughter. I get all the right grades, volunteer at all the right organizations, apply to all the right colleges.

And I hate every second of it. At the rate my life is playing out, under the strict rule of my parents, politicians and housewives will be my future.

Until I meet Harry.

Harry’s a singer in a rock band with a voice so beautiful that I actually feel hypnotized. Doesn’t hurt that he’s hot either, and with the kind, flirty personality to match, it’s the perfect trifecta. And even better, he sees the me I want to be. He sees me as the girl who can break free of the life she’s trapped in, who can control her own future.

The only problem? He knows me as Stella, my fun, carefree alter ego—so drastically different from Destelle, the girl who is trapped in the life her parents rule.

But as we get closer, I realize Harry’s keeping a secret of his own, something related to the dark past that he’s trying to move on from, and when I find out, everything we’ve built could come crashing down.


This is the fifth book in the Love in Fenton County Series, but can be read as a standalone. Check out this Opposites Attract + Hidden Identities Romance today!






EXCERPT #2

 

As I picked up the cold, stupid, heavy thing, my mind began racing for excuses. I came out to find it shattered, I could say, but then they would promptly ask me where I was. They wouldn’t quite believe it got broken at Margot’s house, a house safely tucked inside a gated community. 

I accidentally smacked the seat belt into it. Except I wasn’t sure you could even break a window with a seat belt. Plus, if they found out it was even remotely my fault, I’d be grounded until they shipped me off to college.

Margot might know someone who could fix a broken window. The girls at Eastview might, too—they were resourceful. Street-smart. That’s how I got my fake ID. I just had to hide the damage for a night. I could say I left my windows rolled down because…well, I’d have to think of a reason why. How hard could it be? 

I stood back from the car, lifting the cement piece. Drawing in an icy breath, I squeezed my eyes shut, and then I—

“Whoa, what are you doing?”

The sound of someone’s voice so close to me made me yelp in surprise, whirling around, cement still poised to throw. 

“Don’t shoot,” he quickly got out, and then winced.

Harry stood a few feet from me, a light-wash jean jacket over his shoulders, wind threading its fingers through his auburn hair. His eyes were wide, his eyebrows raised. Both hands were level with his shoulders, and looped around a finger in one hand hung his car keys.

For a second, I just stood staring at him, watching as his eyes darted from me to the rock in my hand to the SUV. 

“It’s my car,” I told him, my voice even.

“That’s good,” he replied, but I couldn’t tell if he fully believed me. His expression was unreadable. “Why, exactly, are you about to shatter your window?”

“My keys.” The confusion didn’t clear from his gaze. “They’re inside.” And then I added, with a gesture at the car, “It’s locked.”

Good grief, Stella, where’s that flirty attitude from last weekend? Apparently it’d gotten locked in the car along with my keys. 

Harry eyed the cement piece. “Seems a bit extreme. Why not call someone to bring a spare set?”

“Can’t.” Get a grip, Destelle. 

After another second of silence, the tension left from his mouth. “One sec,” he said after a moment, taking a backward step. He pointed a finger at the cement in my hand. “You should put that down.”

Not through the car window,” I said for clarification, my voice finally gaining some of its life back. 

It caused Harry to smile. “Definitely not.”
