From Beltane Magic.. this is a must read

Book Review of From Beltane Magic by Jacqueline Paige:

Book Synopsis:

Step into a world of magic and passions....

Take a dash of spice, heat it

Add a flash of magic and watch the sparks fly

Toss in a killer that's targeting women

Add a handful of witches from all paths to stir it all together...

Each were willing to spend their lives alone and safe; until they’re touched by Beltane Magic.

Can they survive their pasts to be together as they struggle to find a killer before the wheel turns again?

Leena is a woman that is gentle in everything, her personality and moods. She always feels maternal with her closest friends and would go out of their way to look after any one of them. Her ability of controlling the elements and knowledge of plants make her magic abilities strong and unbreakable.  She is a leader at work and in life, always working hard to keep those around her close, but never allowing anyone to get too close. 

To the outside world she is just Leena Duncan, a quiet woman who works a normal job and lived a quiet life.

A few times a year she can openly use her magical gifts at celebrations within a small community of people she calls friends. 

Having lived through the horrors that can come from the hands of someone you thought loved you; she decided never loving again would prevent more emotional scarring. 

It takes one man at a rainy Beltane celebration to change everything she is comfortable with and one killer to change her safe world.  
Owen is a man that reflects humor and cavalier vibrations to others, he is gentle and caring as is his ability to draw negative and heal others. If you didn’t know him, you would never realize he came from violence.  Knowing how the real world can be, he has vowed to never put himself into the position, or allow anyone else that could open up the world he has carefully sealed shut forever.  

He creates worlds and puts them on paper to entertain others.  After years of using his imagination he finds out his friends can do things he thought only his mind created.   

For his entire adult life Owen Grey has always played it safe and kept to his own world of writing, never getting too close to anyone.

Having lived a nightmare growing up he would never take the chance of repeating history.  He may write about happily-ever-after, but knows it is pure fantasy and doesn’t exist.

Until her . . . 

About the Author:

I am a world class multi-tasker, a mother to five adventurous and unpredictable children, a cafe manager and I have a colossal imagination that allows me to step outside of reality into a world of paranormal romance with just a touch of suspense. Writer of all things paranormal, mythical and magical. Reader of anything!!

Book Review:

If you read my review of “The Solstice Heat” you know I have come to love all books by Jacqueline Paige.  She is definitely a new favorite author.  “From Beltane Magic” is the first book in the Magic Seasons Series.  This is the story of Leena and Owen.  It is actually about all eight friends, but the focus of this book is definitely the story of these two.

Once again I was drawn into the lives of these people.  This book introduces all the characters, their strengths and flaws.  It also gives us the first pictures of our killer.  Tantalizing little glimpses that make me want to devour the rest of the books right away.

Ms. Paige is one of my favorite new-to-me authors.  She combines just the right amount of beautiful storytelling, suspense, and heat.  And of course the ending leaves you waiting for the next book.  Thankfully I have it so I am not waiting impatiently for it to arrive. 

 These are books you just have to read.

I definitely give this story 5 out of 5 clouds.

About A.K. Alexander

A.K. Alexander
I started writing when I was nine-years-old. I used to write short stories on my dad’s notepads. One day he read one and he said to me, “You are a writer.” It stuck. My dad is still my biggest supporter and he is also my mentor in many ways. I went to college at The University of Southern California. My parents though didn’t think that “creative writing” at USC was a major that would likely be lucrative in the long run, so I figured I would be logical and look at writing in the journalistic field. God (the Universe), etc. had a different plan for me. Soon after I graduated from USC I gave birth to my first son. He was six weeks premature and he had some health issues, which caused me to decide that going into a career at that time would not benefit my son. So, I stayed home with him and I wrote my first book. That first book is tucked away in a box somewhere because it’s pretty darn bad, but it gave me the confidence I needed to know that I could start, write, and finish a book. From that point on, it took me twelve years to become a published author and several manuscripts. It has been a wonderful and amazing process, and although many challenges have presented themselves along the way, I have never quit writing. It is my passion!

My other passion is Horses. These amazing animals are very dear to my heart and I have been known to take in “strays.” My daughter and I are very active in the horse world. My daughter is involved in pony club and three day eventing.

I enjoy work with other writers when I can , especially kids. I designed a program for young writers to help them learn how to write short stories and picture books to writing complete novellas for older kids. I have mentored several students now and it’s a joyful experience to see young writers and their creative minds at work. It is something I am working on expanding with some local teachers in my area.

Family and friends are extremely important to me. I am the proud mother of three amazing kids who have always supported me and are just great, awesome human beings (yes, I know I sound like every mother in the world about their kids, but I really mean it). My husband is my best friend and a very patient man, which is a real positive—he is married to a writer after all. We also have three dogs, a kitty, and eight horses.
When not writing, riding, or being a taxi-cab driver for my youngest, I try to find time to do a little yoga, meditate or cooking. I love cookbooks and cooking!

Book Review:

Daddy's Home
“Holly Jennings wanted to get this son of a b…”  She needed to see him stretched out, strapped down on a gurney.  She yearned to watch the hypo hooked up to his veins, releasing the venomous fluid that would flow through his body, causing it to gradually shut down.  Better yet, Holly wanted to take her nine-millimeter Glock, put it to his temple, and pull the trigger.”

Now that is what you call a hook.  How can you not want to keep reading when that is the first paragraph of the book?  Daddy’s Home is not for the faint of heart.  This murder mystery tackles the twisted mind of a killer, which can be a terrifying place to be… especially when he’s not alone. 

But this book is more than just a mystery and compelling forensic nightmare.  The author brings in romance, suspense, and a good creeping chill… just for fun.  This is not my typical fare for reading as I tend to prefer a good romance or fun fantasy novel; but if you like murder and suspense with a dash of romance then this book is perfect for you.

Well written with an easy reading style, I give this book 4 out of 5 dark clouds.

Book Review of Change of Address

Book Review of Change of Address by Natalie-Nicole Bates

Book Synopsis:

Title:  Change of Address
Author: Natalie-Nicole Bates
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Saved from a traumatic past and successful in her present as a home care nurse, Josselyn Adler’s dream of home ownership in the idyllic town of Unity are dashed to pieces when Dr Ben Parnell, a cancer specialist, shows up on her doorstep claiming to be the rightful owner of the house—and Ben has a will to prove it!  To Josselyn, the house represents a new start in her life. With a stable home, hopefully a much wanted family wouldn’t be far behind.

After a near career-ending allegation is made, Ben has returned home to lick his wounds. But now he must prove Josselyn’s claim to be a fake, that she used her position as a live-in nurse to his sick father to ingratiate herself into his good graces. But as he gets to know her, he can tell by her shy, often standoffish behavior, that Josselyn is a woman who has been deeply hurt in her past. Although he is attracted to the dark haired beauty that has invaded his life, he is still suspicious of her true motives and her past involvement with his father.

Book Excerpt:

When she arrived at the foot of the stairs, the front door rattled. Fear, cold and stark, rose up in her throat and choked her as she heard the lock snap and watched, rooted to the floor, the creaky old door jiggle in its frame. The anticipation mingled with fright, produced a potent, sick feeling churning inside her like the bad horror movie she’d recently viewed on late-night cable television.

After what seemed an eternity, the door flung open. The first thought entering her brain was a ghost had entered her home. A younger, blonder visage of Morgan stood in the threshold. Before she could utter his name, a second, more coherent thought followed; a ghost wouldn’t use a key.

The man in the doorway took one step inside and stopped abruptly, clenched his jaw, and stared. The familiar stranger invading her new home could only be one person. 

“My goodness, you’re Ben! You’re Morgan’s son!” she exclaimed.

“Well, we know who I am. Now who the hell are you, and why are you trespassing in my house?” 

“Your house?” she asked with disbelief. “This is my home. Morgan gave it to me!” 

“I don’t know who you are, lady, but I suggest you get a move on it. I’ll give you five minutes before I call the police.” He pointed to his platinum-cased wristwatch for emphasis.

“Don’t bother waiting.” She reached into her handbag and removed her cell phone. With shaking fingers, she punched in 911.

The line connected after the second ring. “911, what is your emergency?” asked the female dispatcher.

“My name is Josselyn Adler. I’m the new owner of 22 Little Pine Road. A man has let himself into my home and is now threatening me.” Although she was quaking on the inside, she strove to keep her voice and demeanor strong and confident.

“I have an officer on the way, Ms. Adler. Would you like to stay on the line with me until he arrives?” she offered.

“No, thank you. I’ll be fine,” she assured her.

As she disconnected her phone, Ben’s gaze burned into her. She wouldn’t give him the satisfaction of showing any fear. While growing up, she had dealt with her share of tormentors. One forty-year-old, blond-haired bully was not going to intimidate her or drive her from a home that was rightfully hers.

“Very nice performance,” he said snidely.

“Excuse me?” She furrowed her brow and made eye contact. Ben Parnell had his father’s glacial, blue eyes.

“Any moment one of Unity’s finest will be arriving to play knight in shining armor and save the poor maiden from the big, bad wolf.”

Before she could utter a word in reply, a black patrol car came to a screeching halt on the street. An officer threw open the car door and made long, quick strides to the house. His uniform and Unity Police Department baseball cap matched the color of his car.
A lump formed in her throat. As she was growing up, a police car in front of the house and an officer at the door meant her father was in some sort of trouble yet again.

“Good evening, Miss. I’m Officer Smith.” He looked to Ben. “It’s certainly been a long time since you’ve been around, Ben.” Not waiting for an answer from him, he turned his attention back to Josselyn. “What seems to be the problem tonight?”

He knew Ben by his first name. They looked to be about the same age, and in this small town, it was likely they knew each other growing up. Although Officer Smith seemed friendly enough, would he side with the hometown boy rather than with the stranger girl?
“This is my house. Morgan Parnell left it to me in his will. Now he...” She paused and pointed at Ben. “He thinks it’s his house.”

“I have a will, too,” Ben loudly interrupted. “And mine is legitimate!”

His deep voice vibrated through her, causing her head to ache. Flustered, she pulled an envelope from her handbag. Morgan’s attorney gave to her a copy of the will a few days earlier. She handed it to Officer Smith. To her dismay, Ben also produced a document from a briefcase. 

This is very bad

She hoped Ben had been bluffing.

Book Review:

Well after reading the excerpt and synopsis, I expected a typical romance novel.  Guy and girl meet, have problem, dislike each other, are forced together due to unforeseen circumstances, fall in love, and live happily ever after. Blah. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that while the story did follow the romance genera, the story was well thought out and the hero and heroine both sacrificed something for the other leading them both to realize that love with the other person’s happiness being most important is the only true happiness.

Yes, it’s a romance and they all follow a certain plot plan.  That’s what makes them romance novels, and that’s why we love them.  So yeah, I could have done without the whole “I’m damaged goods and don’t want to tell you why.  But eventually I will and we will grow closer because of it and come to realize we are meant for each other.”  That was my only major issue with the book.  The overall message was that we all have issues, but it’s okay and it helps make us the people we are today.

Well written, charming.  I give is 4 out of 5 clouds.

Book Review of Staring Into the Eyes of Chance by Kay Dee Royal

Staring Into the Eyes of Chance
by Kay Dee Royal

Releasing March 2012

Book one in the LIIA Series (Lycan International Investigation Agency)

Featuring Werewolves, Paranormal Abilities, Explicit Love Scenes 


Olivia swears off men until she meets Chance, a Lycan alpha. He ignites an undeniable hunger they can only sate together.

Muse It Up Publishing:


Olivia closed her eyes, calling up her animal sensitivity ability, while shoving down her own panic. After years of psychically working with animals, she knew they sensed panic and fear. Her breathing needed regulating.

Olivia relaxed as best she could and opened her mind. She sensed the wolf; masculine. He came across with an urgent need to protect, more like helping her feel safe. Another howl, with a deep and sinister timbre, shattered her concentration. A stab of electricity zipped through her, pumping adrenaline and tightening every muscle. This howl came from farther inside the forest than the first one. She sensed aggression in the wolves within the forest, ready for battle. Her heart drummed against her ribs in anticipation of an answering call, and she couldn’t stop the tremors running rampant in her belly.

Instead she saw the lights go out through her closed eyelids. She opened her eyes and saw nothing but blackness.

Nine o’clock on a September evening, what did she expect? Damn power company! Hopefully Lacey sat in the Jacuzzi and wouldn’t come running out.

She lay listening for any sound. Her own breath, the loudest panting she’d ever heard, came in at a close second to her heart banging against the walls of her chest. Slowly, she sat up. The back of her head throbbed, her spine hurt, and the front of her body ached, especially her breasts. She bent her legs to stand and in that same moment a jet of hot mist coated her face.

Wolf breath.

Olivia froze, tamping down the run-for-your-life urge. Her mind reached toward the beast beside her, searching his energy markers, his emotions, urges. She read him as curious, stimulated. Maybe a misread of…sexually stimulated? She sat back on her haunches, figuring if she stretched at least four feet of her five-foot ten frame, maybe she’d appear larger. His breath assailed her from above, she remained squatted.

Damn, this thing is huge!

He sniffed the top of her head, down by her ear, licked the length of her neck and up the side of her face. Another howl close by, echoing near the tree-line, got the wolf’s attention. He raised his head from her and shoved her body back with his own. She went down on her butt, folding her legs sideways. Fur from his backside pressed into the front of her, including her face. Olivia turned her head away and took a breath. A shiver began in her belly and inched through her arms, legs, and up her neck. She sensed his urgency, he must move and his need…again, to keep her safe and again something else, another misread?

He moved back, his head next to hers. A growl vibrated, harsh and deep, beside her ear. Olivia jumped when he yipped instead of howled. He circled her, stopping behind her. A sudden scratch of claws and pebbles from rain washout near the barn pelted her. Air swirled around her as the wolf leaped over her head in the direction of the woods.

Olivia’s breath whooshed out like a balloon being released. Tears welled and trickled down her face. The wolf’s size was about as abnormal as it got. She’d never heard of any wolf being that large. She’d done plenty of research on the species, brushing up for the wolf pup she rehabilitated and released back into the wild years ago when Ray and she first opened the refuge, before they owned the preserve property.

Olivia pushed herself up onto wobbly legs, her stomach lurched, and before she could blink, vomit spewed. She retched hard, falling onto her hands and knees, weak and crying, something she hadn’t done since Ray’s funeral. As if on cue, all the lights popped on, illuminating her shadow against the barn wall.

Oh, that’s lovely. Damn power company.

A howl, and then another and another, echoed from different locations in the forest. Her forest, her wildlife preserve, not a place for a beast like her visitor, and most definitely not a place for the aggressive lot in the forest. She swiped her face with the bottom of her shirt and looked toward the woods.

About thirty yards away in the mowed meadow, her wolf circled with another, close-in-size, milky-eyed wolf with a deformed face, both spot-lighted in the yard light. They flashed razor sharp teeth and glowing eyes, with the exception of the one’s coated eye. Their vicious growls and snapping jaws filled the air. Olivia found her tranq gun on the ground and grabbed it. By the time she turned for a shot, she saw the tail end of both wolves leaping into the woods, her wolf chasing the other.

Olivia leaned against the barn, adjusting her position in accordance with her pain. She thought of the curious readings she sensed from her wolf, not sure of their meaning. She never questioned first impressions from readings anymore. Years of experiences proved first intuitive readings rang as authentic truth in almost every case.

She closed her eyes and pictured her wolf looking at her for the first time, the way his head snapped in her direction and how their gazes met and connected. She touched her neck, sliding fingertips up her cheek where his tongue touched her skin.

Her breath caught, heart raced, and her eyes opened wide. She laughed out loud, maybe in relief, maybe in a small fit of hysteria, or maybe because she consider that wolf as “her” wolf. Her “stimulation” readings from him threw her off, knowing it wasn’t a possibility.

Author Information:
Kay Dee Royal writes paranormal and fantasy erotic romance—maybe because it's also her favorite genre to read! She pens tales with wild, rugged heroes and strong, intelligent heroines. She'll give them both a few shadowy secrets, making her stories intriguing and fun. She resides in Southern Michigan with her family (her dogs, her cats, her caged husband... you get the idea) You can reach her at her blog and find the latest on her titles from her publisher, MuseItHot.

Book Review:
Olivia endures a thirty-four year passionless marriage, discovering her dead husband’s philandering history at his funeral. She devotes her energy and life-long sensitivity with animals to her wildlife refuge and preserve.

Chance, a Lycan alpha and leader of the Lycan International Investigation Agency (LIIA) throws himself into his investigations. He chooses to neglect his duty of finding a primal-mate after watching his father become an empty shell over the loss of his.

A murderous rogue pack draws Chance onto Olivia’s wildlife preserve, sending Olivia’s animal sensitivities into overdrive. Chance and Olivia discover a sizzling force driving them together.

Will they succumb to its enticing tether, or fight to resume their loveless lives apart?

Okay, so not the kind of book I usually review, but va-va-va-voom.  Definitely a keeper.  This is a book for grown-ups only.  Hot, Hot, and yummy.

Okay, so maybe my naughty little secret is I like my romance with a little heat or erotic moments thrown in.  This is definitely the book for that.  Not only is it a well written story (any yes, we like our erotica with a “real” story not just heat), it has all the sizzle guaranteed to make my hubby smile later.

This is a great read because of the story.  The heat is a bonus perk.  The story is about two strong alphas, one male and one female, fighting for the land and to save what they love.  So they clash and sizzle and clash some more, but in the end they find that fighting is more fun when you work together for what you want.

Unfortunately all the questions were not answered and boy do I have some questions left over.  Can’t wait to see how they are resolved.  This is absolutely 4 of 5 clouds.

Welcome to the Author of Rae of Hope: W. J. May

Rae’s Story

I’ve often been asked by kids, adults and other writers (who sometimes don’t quite fall into the kid category or the adult one either J )  So, while visiting Mindy’s blog today, I figured I’d share the story – from start to finish.

Sit back, unbutton your suit jacket and grab yourself a snack and cup of coffee (better make it a small one, my story’s not that long!)

I wrote as a kid (sadly, I figured I’d make a wonderful romance, harlequin writer – which, coming from a small Christian School I should have realized I’d never make the cut J )  However, writing dreams got pushed aside for Olympic dreams when I began high jumping in tenth grade and began representing Canada. Well, I never quite made the Olympics (made World Championships, won Olympic Trials, but never quite made that extra 2cm required by Canada to make the standard).

My Dad passed away in 2008 from a strong, six year batter with cancer.  During one of our last conversations we had, he encouraged me to chase after my dreams.  So, that Christmas (2 mths later) I began writing again. I wrote a book called Riding Hood (which is actually being edited with my agent and going out to publishers in the near future – it’s now titled Seventh Mark).  Rae of Hope, the first book in the Chronicles of Kerrigan came along 2 months later, and ironically, 2 mths later it was finished. 

I decided that if I ever wanted my kids to read my work, I needed to fine tune it so they wouldn’t make fun of me.  My kids are 6,5 and 21mths – I figured I had plenty of time before they start reading a YA book.  Anyways, I joined a critique group ( – which I highly recommend to any writer) and learned loads, met great friends (especially the Golden Girls – who are not old, but are 5 star worthy) and learned valuable information.  On CC I was encouraged to look for an agent to represent my work. 

I didn’t believe that any of my writing was publishing worthy but got curious.  I sent Rae of Hope out to five agents and within the week, all five requested the entire MS.  I didn’t realize that in itself was a big feat – I assumed that was normal.  Well, within two months, I had two agents interested in representing Rae.  I did some homework (not quite sure what I needed to do, but I did ask a lot of questions). I signed on with Dawn Dowdle from BlueRidge Literary Agency.  She was interested in representing Rae of Hope, and also Riding Hood/Seventh Mark.

Learning about edits, about re-reading and revising (something I had ALWAYS hated to do as a kid) became something fun J Crazy ‘eh?  I had no idea what track changes were or how to do anything about them when I got my first MS back.  The red lines and comments made me think I had to rewrite the ENTIRE ms over again! Ha ha – Dawn patiently explained what needed to be done.

The time came to start publishing rounds for Rae of Hope.  A large number of houses were interested and it was exciting to get requests, along with responses of no’s – as a lot of editors gave suggestions what they felt the story needed.  I followed their advice and I kept writing and learning all the while.  Chicken House – a UK publisher – showed strong interest and we got fantastic feedback on what they would like us to do.  I rewrote and made the story stronger.  In the meantime (it took me quite a while as three kids and a business kept me busy J ), CH found a similar story that they were interested in, or they simply weren’t interested in it anymore.  No matter what the excuse, I learned more valuable information and was extremely grateful for it.

kNight Romance Publishing contacted Dawn between Christmas and New Years to say that they were interested in Rae and her series.  So, on January first of 2011, I signed my first official publishing contract.  (yeah me!)

Mitchell Morris Publishing became on imprint (or KRP became an imprint) – I’m not 100% sure how to say that one correctly and Rae of Hope went from a single book to a four book contract.

More edits, more learning and now I began to be able to share my opinions and understanding of the story and the edits better – and Rae of Hope hit e-book format in August of 2011, the paperback released the end of November.  It was original a POD, but is now going to traditional publishing, along with the next book, Dark Nebula, coming out this fall/winter.

I sit here giggling over the fact that I am able to hold my story in my hands.  It’s surreal. Amazing. Exhausting. Confusing. Fun. Inspiring.
… The best part – I know my Dad would be as proud of my writing career as he was of my high jump career. And the better part? I know he’s prouder of my three kids than anything else J  So am I.

Thanks for letting me stop by Mindy and share my story.   I really appreciate it!
