#TeaserTuesday Time Again With Barbara White Daille

For the first time since their teenaged summer romance, Mitch and Andi have just met again:

Now he couldn’t keep from touching her. He rested his hand on her arm, feeling the warmth of her skin and the way her muscle tightened beneath his fingers. “I’m sorry.”

She nodded, then grabbed the carton and rushed away, but not quickly enough to keep him from seeing the tears in her eyes. He’d gotten answers to his questions, discovered his anger had slipped away, but didn’t know what he could find to replace it. He curled his fingers, trying to hang on to the warmth he would swear he still felt from her skin.

Trying Something New This Time Around

The world of publishing is constantly changing. At one time only the big guys in New York published books. Then along came small ebook publishers. Today, writers have so many options. For me I decided to self-publish my first book over three years ago. Since then I have released 8 full novels and one novella. I have a 9th ready now for publication, the third in my Love On The North Shore Series. Before I hit the publish button, however, I decided to try something new. I enrolled it in the Kindle Scout program.

If you have not heard of it, it is a program where you submit your book and readers can nominate it. Once the thirty days are up it goes to the team at Kindle Scout and they review it as well as the nominations and decide if they want to publish it.

I have another 20 days before my book goes to the review team and I'd love for you to check it out. If you like it, please consider pressing the nominate button. Be sure to browse the other books currently in the nomination process as well.

Today's Book Feature and Giveaway with Jennifer Kacey

For more than two years they’ve been ghosts. Nothing but names on empty tombstones. Men and women forced to fade into the background after being pulled from the rubble. Dead Marines saved from a fate worse than death, but ordered to stand down while their lives disappeared all around them.

Some knew it could happen if a mission exploded. Double crossed by more than just Red Wolf. But now is their time to be reborn from the flames of a Phoenix. No longer imprisoned in the shadows. A half-life between them and their future. To make things right coming back to life is their only option.

How about a little excerpt from one of these stories

Excerpt From Zinc’s Heart By Rebecca Royce

With his fists clenched and his breaths coming out in hard puffs, he took off his hood. Then waited. Gasps sounded in the room and someone cried out. But not Steele. Copper took off running and behind him Brad tried to move. Zinc couldn’t take his gaze of Steele.

Say something, he willed his friend, tell me you understand what has happened here. What you did to me when you left me there on the ground, when you didn’t bring my body home.

Nothing. Not a single reaction from the man he would give—and hell—had given his life for in Russia. Steele didn’t seem surprised. Zinc stalked forward. It was the silence that was his undoing, the non-reaction. Steele’s woman let out a cry, and Zinc’s best friend did nothing.

Zinc couldn’t take it anymore.

“How could you have left me there for these fuckers to take?” His whole body vibrated as he waited for any response, any reaction. Nothing came.

Crack. He whacked Steele’s nose, and the room exploded into sound. Who gave a shit? He wasn’t done yet. He swung at him again, hitting him harder. Why. Fuck you why. Why did you leave me there, Steele? How could you have let them do what they did to me? I pulled you from the car. All I wanted from you was to bring my body home when it was over. Why. Why. Why.

Blood sprayed Zinc and the front of Steel’s shirt went red.

Good. Let him bleed. Let him hurt. Let him…

Whack. Zinc punched Steele again, slamming Steele square in the eye. Zinc’s hand burned. Training had taught Zinc years ago how to hit without hurting himself. Only fuck it, Zinc didn’t care. Beating the bastard who left him behind felt too good. Years spent waiting for his moment, keeping quiet, staying in the shadows while his whole fucking world fell apart.

Book Feature and Giveaway With Kathleen Korbel

When New Yorker Casey Phillips visits the tiny country of Moritania, she simply wants to see where her ancestors came from. Instead, she's mistaken for a princess.

The real princess has been kidnapped, and Crown Prince Eric von Lieberhaven insists Casey—a dead ringer for the missing royal—step into the princess's shoes until she can be freed.

As Casey upends royal tradition, Eric finds himself hoping the cheeky American never returns home. But can a secretary from Brooklyn really find happiness with a prince?

How About An Excerpt

The Royal Palace of Moritania, the Alps, 1987

Eric handed her up the steps before him as a silent groom appeared from somewhere and took the Bronco away. Casey half expected him to sweep the cobblestones behind them. When they reached the door, it magically opened, another liveried servant bowing and smiling as he passed them on.

"Rolph," Eric said, easing Casey along when she slowed, "is Her Majesty the queen available for visitors?"

"I shall check for you, Your Highness. Refreshments?"

He stole a look at Casey, who was rubbernecking the paintings on the walls with undisguised astonishment. After a moment he nodded. "Yes, I believe they will be needed. In the Great Hall, if you please."

Rolph dispatched a discreetly questioning look, but bowed and moved away. Casey was still trying to take in the extent of the entryway.

Train stations were smaller. The walls extended up some thirty feet, decorated with what looked suspiciously like old masters and terminating in a high, vaulted ceiling that some brave painter had gotten his hands on. It was all light and froth, cherubs and swirling gold banners swimming around a vault of milky white. The floors were of gleaming dark wood covered in what had to be priceless Oriental rugs. The effect was one of immense space, the inside of the building mirroring the image given by the outside. Quiet, understated grace and wealth.

No need for ostentation here. It only made her want to see more.

"Like your decorator," she finally managed, casting a sidelong glance over to where Eric was enjoying her reaction.

"Moritania might not be big—" he bowed a little in acknowledgment, "—but it is a country rife with good taste. I'd like to show you something, if you don't mind."

"The only thing you could show me to beat this would be the Sistine chapel."

Walking to the right side of the hall, Eric opened a great oak door. Casey walked past him into an even more impressive room. It was long, with six matched sets of crystal chandeliers and floor-to ceiling windows that reflected in the mirrors along the opposite wall.

"Been to Versailles, had they?" she breathed, coming to a stop.

Eric wouldn't let her. Instead, he took her by the elbow and gently propelled her down the parquet flooring. "I'm sure you don't know," he was saying, "but my brother just died recently."

Casey immediately turned to him. "Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't."

He nodded with a sad little smile. "He was much older than I, and his heart was bad. The upshot of it is that next week his daughter, my niece, will become the new queen of Moritania. She is his only child, and his wife is also dead."

Casey had no idea where the conversation was leading. He seemed so reluctant to tell her that she knew it was something important to him. She couldn't think of anything more to do than nod.

Then he stopped walking. Turning to her, he took hold of both of her arms, his eyes trying to communicate something of import. They had softened. Casey felt even more confused.


"The portrait here at the end of the Great Hall has just gone up. It is a painting of the next queen of Moritania, Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess Cassandra."

He turned Casey to face the painting. Casey's jaw dropped. Looking back at her from the canvas was a young woman with delicate features, a gently molded face with deep, wide-set hazel eyes and a small, straight nose. A small mouth curved just at the ends as if she was amusing herself immensely with a private joke. Diamonds and rubies glittered at her throat, and a mane of tawny hair swept back, thick and styled sleekly away from tiny ears where teardrop diamonds hung.

Casey turned to Eric and then back to the picture and then back to Eric again, unable to speak. Then she turned once again to the portrait and finally admitted what he'd been trying to prepare her for. She was staring at a portrait of herself.

"And here I thought losing the car was going to be the high point of my day."
