Love #Cowboys? Once Upon A Savage Moon - 5-part Serial

"Keta Diablo's "Once Upon a Savage Moon" parts 1 and 2 are the first two parts in a five-part serial. They are steamy historicals. Very hawt sexy scenes. I loved the backstory and was hooked right away."

 "Lots of twists and turns, and a gritty existence in a hard time in US history. I will definitely be reading parts 3-5 very soon and I want to see what else this author has out there."

"I don't want to go too much into the story as it takes a lot of twists and turns and I don't want to give anything away. I devoured the series, glad to be able to start the next part immediately after finishing. It's a page turner once it finds its flow and I'm definitely going to be searching out more from this author."

"The journey of all the characters keeps you from becoming bored which would be hard to do since Keta's style of writing paints picture straight from the history books. Congrats on such an incredible book and thank you for allowing me to live in your imagination for a time."


About Once Upon A Savage Moon:
Brothers Creed and Brand Gatlin love the same woman. One is the father to her child; the other her husband. One left to fight in the Civil War; one stayed home to pick up the tumultuous pieces of their lives.

Welcome Kathleen Rowland #RomanticIdea *New Release* #romance

Here is Kathleen Rowland’s summertime #RomanticIdea to win him over: 

Choose an activity that gets you into his element.  How about sailing or kayaking? Let him show you how it’s done! Beach the craft and pull him in close.  The experience of being out and about in public makes it hard for him to wait for the trip home… to have you.

Blurb for Deadly Alliance, #romantic #suspense


Finbar Donahue, former Army Ranger, walked on the wild side in Iraq, but now he lives in the shadows. After his evasive partner, Les, was shot in a random drive-by, Finn discovers cash is siphoned monthly. He fights to keep his investment company afloat. When the late partner’s girlfriend, Amy Kintyre, applies for his bookkeeping job, Finn suspects she knows about his company drain and hires her.

Amy needs a nine-to-five with free evenings and weekends to get her fashion design business back on track. She unearths Les’ s secret bank account and alerts Finn. Freezing of the money laundering account sets off havoc within an Irish gang. Amy witnesses a gang fight between a brutal ISIS fundraising organization and the Irish. Desperate to escape a stalker’s crosshairs, she seeks refuge with Finn. As danger heats up, sparks fly hotter.


Interview—Finn and Amy
Let’s interview the hero of Deadly Alliance,  Finbar Donahue.


1. Nickname:  Finn. My full name is Finbar Michael Donahue.
2. Job: I own my own investment company, but who’s the chickenshit stealing money from me?  My goal is to find the thief.
3. Level of schooling:  B.A. in finance, former Army Ranger. That was when I targeted a known enemy.  Believe me, it’s harder now.
 

I’ve got a few questions for the heroine, Amy Kintyre.
1.    What’s your dream job? I want to get my sportswear design business back on track.  A few days ago a buyer phoned me and gave me an opportunity to present my line.  I need a nine-to-five with evenings and weekends off to sew mockups. 
2.    Is that why you applied for Finbar Donahue’s bookkeeping job?  Yes, but I have a huge problem.   Last night I found a sketchy bank account belonging to my late boyfriend, Les.  He and Finn were partners.
3.    Would you enjoy working for Finn?  No, but there aren’t many job openings in Lake Arrowhead.

Excerpt-- Amy’s first day working for Finn

Hours later, Finn straightened his spine as he listened to his new bookkeeper order Rosenberg around with the authority of an Army lieutenant. She spoke with confidence from her chair and waited for answers with intensity. Somehow she came across larger than her delicate self.
“Brad,” his pretty war buddy said, “I’ll need your password to access activity-to-date.” Her attitude wasn’t for show. Her curiosity propelled her to the depths of the drain. Heaven help those who lurked there.
“Sure thing.” Brad blew out a breath and scribbled his password on a sticky note. Handing it to her, he bent to her level.
She said, “I apologize for causing chaos.”
“No apology necessary.” Brad asked, “What are you working on?”
Jumping in, Finn said, “Comparisons, Rosenberg, that’s what she’s working on.” Unholy as she’d undoubtedly turn out to be, at the moment they were forged in combat. “Give her your full support.”
“Absolutely. Consider me your scaffold,” Rosenberg said, accepting his fate. “Excuse me, won’t you? I’m running payroll.”
Finn liked his head accountant. He was solid. Dependable. Not creative, but his easy-going manner was soothing. “Payroll. You’re a masochist.”
Amy smiled, and her crystal-green gaze sought his. She found his comment amusing. Her professional attire included a gray satin blouse tucked into a herringbone skirt. When she moved, her layered, dark-blonde hair settled into a sleek flip over her shoulders.
Amy’s bending and reaching, as she took control of her four-by-four cubicle, was damn compelling. She found a rhythm with a handy notepad beside her computer. Using Brad’s password, she turned sideways to open files. Attractive summed up her symmetrical profile and creamy complexion.
For a long while, getting hot and heavy had not been on his mind. Her envelope gave him concrete evidence to bring to the sheriff and eased his tension. As she brushed tresses off her face, he wanted to nibble on her ear.

Amy packed her lithe frame with succulent curves. He enjoyed observing her ample bust which required high-performance support. He’d like to see those globes running free. He’d never considered her as dating material. Timing was off. When she started dating Les, he was hooking up with Miss California. Now it was too late. She worked for him. Hands off. Finn liked women—lots of women, all women, in all shapes and sizes and ethnicities as long as they met the enthusiasm requirement. He hadn’t tested this, but she was off-limits for another reason. He didn’t intend to put her through another relationship leading to nowhere.
Finn kept things loose. A woman in his bed but not in his life was what he often said. There hadn’t been that either.  Why was she looking at him like that?

Welcome Anita Philmar and 'The Country Doctor's Bride' #western #romance

The Country Doctor’s Bride
6th book in the Naked Bluff, Texas series

Tagline – Can this doctor help a woman accused of murder?


Blurb:
A hot, historical western stand-alone story with a satisfying HEA.

With no ties to Texas, Dixy secures a ride to the next town on her way out of the state. The driver, Tobias Poe offers to let her rest. While she’s in the back, he is shot.

Rushing to save him, she arrives in Naked Bluff, Texas.

The town’s doctor, Nathaniel Murphy can’t save him, but can he save her?
 

Penniless, alone, and now a murder suspect, Dixy has no alternative but to accept his help. Can this couple build a future together?
Or will a killer silence her forever?


Excerpt

Slowly, the clicked-clank of the wheels and the steady rocking lured her to sleep.
Only moments later to her, Dixy heard voices and noticed they weren’t moving. Had they arrived in town?
Disoriented, she listened to the rough cadence of a male voice. His loud, accusing tone shoved back the lure of continuing to snooze. She shifted and squinted up to where Tobias still sat on the wagon’s bench.
“Now, now, there’s no cause for you to get upset. I have everything under control,” Tobias assured the other man.
“So do I,” the stranger yelled.
Pop, pop, pop.
Dixy froze. Gunfire wasn’t something she was prepared to deal with.
Holding her breath, she silently wondered, what the hell was going on?
Several long seconds ticked by, then the distinct sound of horse’s hooves striking the wet ground sang through the silence. Plop, plop, plop, the noise indicated the man had ridden away.
“Tobias, what was that—”
A body crumbled on top of her. Shocked by the sudden attack, Dixy scrambled to one side and sat up to stare into Tobias’ pale, pain-filled face. Misery sat on the tight line of his lips. Blood covered his chest.
“My God, Tobias,” Dixy exclaimed and scurried to give him room to lie down on the hard, wooden planks. “You’ve been shot.
