T13407074_567384333434370_3612497034505173253_nThe Reef Roamer

Jayme Haller embarked on a new career as a means of therapy after her husband died from a shark attack while they were scuba diving in the Caribbean. As The Reef Roamer, Jayme did video travel-logs of popular travel destinations that included underwater scenes for divers and snorkelers alike.

After five long years, her assignment took her back to very place her husband died and unknowingly into the arms of the doctor she blamed for not saving him…

Dr. Mark Steele was haunted by the memory of a beautiful young widow with the greenest eyes he had ever seen. Her husband had been brought to his clinic after a shark attack, but the man was already dead when they rushed him in. Five years passed and now she was back. Did he dare admit what part he played in her past and risk losing the love of his life?

About Deborah D. Moore13507010_567384336767703_5535976156805454849_n

I live a quiet life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, with my cat Tufts. Born and raised in Detroit, the kid of a cop, I moved to a small town to raise my two young sons. After that, I moved to an even smaller town to pursue my dreams of being self-sufficient and to explore my love of writing.

Being a life-long prepper, I have done numerous articles for magazines, and speaking engagements at conventions regarding the subject.

My first published novel, The Journal: Cracked Earth, made the Best Seller’s list in just six weeks. Book two of the series, Ash Fall, went to the printer eight months early because of the unprecedented popularity and book three, Crimson Skies, is proving to be even more popular. Raging Tide, the fourth book in the series, was to be the final chapter, but I am delighted to announce that book five (Fault Line), The Journal Trilogy (a compilation of the first three books), and A Prepper’s Cookbook, all to be published in 2016. Also, I’ve started book six in The Journal series.

As an added note, I recently signed with Limitless Publishing for a romance series. The first of The Roamer series is The Reef Roamer, with an anticipated release in July of this summer.

I also host a couple of blogs, which you may enjoy:

Leah Watton’s practical joke has spiralled way out of control—all to impress a crush…
 
With a prank online video, Leah hopes to catch the attention of Jake Colton, a cute, blond-haired, blue-eyed co-worker she’s had a crush on for months. But instead of sending it to Jake, she manages to forward the clip to her boss—who buys every gory second.
 
When mass panic ensues, Leah learns the video is more than a staged act…
 
The government is calling the virus AM13. As the outbreak spreads, citizens are forced to stay indoors while they assess the gravity of the illness.

That’s where she first encounters one of the infected…
 
Aside from a contaminated woman devouring one of her co-workers, Leah has another problem. Does she do as she’s ordered and stay at work? Or should she disobey government orders and break free to reunite with her family?
 
She can’t go it alone—after all, Leah has none of the skills needed to survive—but with Michelle and Jake by her side, not even a contagious virus and a sea of the dead can keep her from…
 
Breaking out of the Lockdown…

Author Bio:

Keren lives in the UK and is an avid bookworm. She fondly remembers the days where she would lie in her bedroom away from distraction and get lost in the world of make believe. Her first real memory of reading something she fell in love with was The Hobbit. In her teenage years, she became addicted to Point Horror books like RL Stine’s The Boyfriend, but she also enjoyed light Summer reads like What Katy Did and What Katy Did Next.

Over the years she has come to realise that she is a bit of an OCD freak about books. They have to be in perfect condition without the slightest bit of damage.
She has been a book reviewer for the last few years and a book hoarder for a LOT longer. You can NEVER have too many books! Her shelves are bulging and overflowing but she always wants “just one more book”.

Keren had her first book published by Limitless Publishing in November 2013. It’s a YA Paranormal Romance novel called Stolen. Her second book was published with LP in May 2014. This time, an NA Contemporary Romance called Nothing Like The First Time.
She couldn’t have been more surprised when NLTFT appeared on the Amazon Best Seller list. That was a dream come true.

Keren is currently working on more NA Contemporary Romances for you to fall in love with.

Keren loves hearing from her readers.

My Book “Movie” Dream Cast

13105995_545514795621324_1270205044_oGillian MurphyMy movie cast would be very glamorous as creative director this is the least I can do. Now my lead would be played by the delicious Cillian Murphy. His eyes are just mesmerising….Benedict Harrison was based on him actually. I feel in love with those eyes.siena

My leading lady would be Rosie Huntington-Whitley. She’ s super sexy and with my characters unique and sultry personality…the film has already got all the ingredients for a show stopper.

GerryButlerNow add Gerry Butler to the mix and what can I say, except ladies you are in for a treat. My character Guy Walker fits Gerry perfectly. It doesn’t hurt he’s a fellow Scot.

cruz

Last but not least is Anna who is, let me just say, a character that will leave an impression. With a smoking hot storyline, this fiery temptress would suit the lovely Miss Cruz.

Well as Bugs Bunny says That’s All Folks!

Life is sweet in The Sanctuary—until Lillian Harris is thrown the curveball of her life.
 
Lillian is perfectly happy cocooned within
the lofty perimeter fence of The Sanctuary. Her
Sanctuary—a vast oasis for rescued lions, tigers, and elephants. The animals are her world. So when Lillian’s dad tells her a nineteen-year-old criminal who’s fresh out of prison is coming to The Sanctuary as part of a rehabilitation program, Lillian is more than a little apprehensive.

Justice Armstrong is more arrogant than a Silverback, but something darker lurks behind
his eyes…
 
It isn’t until Justice swaggers toward her
from the parole officer’s car—pierced, confident, and more than a little hot—Lillian
knows she has her work cut out for her. His stare has the power to rob her of
all thoughts. His words, although crude and nefarious, bring a part of her to
life she never knew existed. How is this criminal suddenly turning her world
upside down?
 
He
has the power to drag her to the dark side….
 
Pain is his drug of choice, a vice he
can’t survive without. Then he meets Lillian Harris. Little miss hellcat. Fiery, strong, and all woman. She challenges him
at every damn turn, and watching her tame those fierce big cats makes his need for
her that much stronger. He wants to do things to her…wicked things. She makes
him crave pain in a whole new way.
 

 

When a teen with a dark past bumps heads with a feisty rescue worker, will it be
love over lust—or a matter of life and death?

Thursday’s Author Feature with Natalina Reis.

 
We Will Always Have the Closet 
by Natalina Reis
 
 
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
 
Synopsis

 

Petra Galatas sees the world through rose-colored glasses… 
 

Petra has always chosen to see the best in people. Even her ex-husband’s extramarital affairs couldn’t destroy her faith in humanity. However, as much as she craves love, she’s not ready to trust another man with her heart. 

The last place Petra thought she’d meet a guy was a closet in her ex-husband’s house… 

While investigating Jonas Linden for millions of dollars in art fraud, Sam Corra’s clues lead him into the most unlikely of places—Jonas’ closet. Even less likely was meeting a woman there…a beautiful woman with honey skin and big brown eyes. Though neither of them divulge the reason they’re there, there’s an instant mutual attraction. And when Sam pursues her, he discovers the beautiful woman is none other than Jonas Linden’s ex-wife. 

He’s on a mission to prove Jonas’ guilt. She’s determined to prove his innocence… 

Unwilling to believe she’d been stupid enough to marry a criminal, Petra attempts an investigation of her own, and unwittingly puts herself—and Sam—in danger. First comes an “accident” that lands Petra in the hospital. Second is a kidnapping that puts Sam’s life in grave danger. 

When they both become pawns in a deadly game, money, art, and love are all at stake.

Meet the Author

 

Natalina wrote her first romance in collaboration with her best friend at the age of 13. Since then she has ventured into other genres, but romance is first and foremost in almost everything she writes.
 

After earning a degree in tourism and foreign languages, she worked as a tourist guide in her native Portugal for a short time before moving to the United States. She lived in three continents and a few islands, and her knack for languages and linguistics led her to a master’s degree in education. She lives in Virginia where she has taught English as a Second Language to elementary school children for more years than she cares to admit.

Natalina doesn’t believe you can have too many books or too much coffee. Art and dance make her happy and she is pretty sure she could survive on lobster and bananas alone. When she is not writing or stressing over lesson plans, she shares her life with her husband and two adult sons.

 
 
 




Wednesday’s Author Freature with Kelly Hashway.

INTO THE FIRE by Kelly Hashway
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
♒ SYNOPSIS 
In one month’s time, seventeen-year-old
Cara Tillman will die and be reborn from her own ashes…
Her life
of secrecy has never been easy. She’s watched her younger brother, Jeremy, burn
and rise again in a coming-of-age process called rebirth. And just like her
brother, when her time comes, she won’t remember anything from her first life other
than she’s a Phoenix—a member of a small group of people descended from the
mythical Phoenix bird.
The last thing she needs to worry
about is falling for the new guy in town—Logan Schmidt.
Cara is
drawn to Logan in a way she can’t explain, but she’s not exactly complaining.
Everything is perfect…except it’s not. Once she’s reborn, she’ll forget Logan.
And to make things worse, a Phoenix Hunter is on the loose, and Cara’s
involvement with Logan is bringing out her Phoenix qualities—the very qualities
that will draw the Hunter right to her.
Desperate times call for desperate
measures…
Afraid of
hurting Logan, Cara breaks it off for good. But her attraction to him runs
deeper than a typical high school crush. She wants him—needs him. And if he proves willing to stay by her side, their love might
destroy them both.
Can Cara hide from the Phoenix Hunters
long enough to survive her rebirth? And if so, will it mean a new beginning with Logan—or the beginning of
the end?
