Excerpt from The Witches of Hant Hollow by D.F.Jones, copyright 2017, All Rights Reserved

Carlton walked through the bustling festival reminiscent of the Renaissance. 

Along the hillside, mage members set up camp with elaborate tents for the week long event. Torches dotted the landscape casting a buttery glow while the smaller tents and booths decorated the Glen offering wares and services from spells to silks to jewel encrusted wands and swords.

A wide array of flavors and aromas wafted throughout the main drag along with a variety of specialty drinks and brews for the revelers.

Magic games and challenges added to the fun. Witches and wizards wore colorful costumes with family crests. 

Carlton spotted the young and beautiful Jasmine, the fortune teller under a bright red and gold tent with yards and yards of multi-colored fabric draped at the entrance. 

Her silky black hair draped her shoulders, and her green eyes seemed to glow in the night. 

He inwardly groaned at the thought of kissing her delectable lips as red as wine so full and sensual. 

He watched as she hypnotically weaved a tale of enchantment to the mortals sitting in front of her. 

Someone touched his elbow, and he turned. Another beauty looked up at him and smiled. “Jasmine is 

beautiful. Are you Carlton?”

He replied, “And you are?”

“I’m Lavender, her cousin. Has Brody arrived?” Lavender wore a bright yellow empire waist gown with layers of sheer fabric flowing in the night breeze. Her hair piled high on her head with shimmering gold ribbons entwined between the strands. 

“He and his men are still setting up camp. He’s told me a great deal about you. Brody is a good wizard, loyal and true.”

“I like you, Carlton. But a warning, Jasmine recently experienced heartbreak. But she’s looking forward to seeing you. Please, be patient with her.”

He clenched his fists at the thought of someone touching the woman he intended to mate. “What happened?”

She rolled her eyes. “I can read your thoughts. Nothing happened but her heart is broken just the same.”
“Excuse me.”
He glanced at the fortune teller’s tent. The mortals made an exit, and he entered, closing the fabric door behind him. He bowed before Jasmine, and she blushed. “Did you give them a true reading or one they needed to hear.”

Jasmine looked up and smiled. “One they needed to hear. Would you like a reading?”

“No, but I will pay for your time.” He reached into his side pocket and deposited several gold coins.

Shaking her head, she said, “I’m not taking your money. But I will take a hug. How have you been old friend?”

He swept her into his arms and hugged her tightly. She placed her head on his shoulder and began to cry. He lifted her chin with his hand. “Hey, what’s this? Why the tears? I thought you’d be happy to see me?”

Sniffling, Jasmine brushed away the tears with the back of her hand. “Let’s take a walk. There’s too many people with ears of bats around here.”

He chuckled and snapped his fingers. They reappeared at his camp with a tent fitted for a king. “Wine?”

“Carlton, I can’t be in your tent. It’s not proper.”

“I won’t tell if you won’t. Besides, we have complete privacy here. Please, sit and have a glass of wine with me. What may I do to help alleviate your sadness?”

She took a silver goblet of wine and lowered on a mountain of large cushions. “I fell in love with a mortal.”
“I really enjoyed reading Antique Mirror. It was quick, light, but with some suspense. Because it’s a short read, the suspense parts are minimal, but works well with the story. The pace is very fast, so there is never a dull moment. I happily give this book a 5-star rating! Highly recommended to those who like quick reads with a little suspense and romance.”

Angel and Demons Collide in Sandy’s Story (Ditch Lane Diaries 3)

Investigative reporter, Sandy Cothran follows a murder lead on Music Row which uncovers Luc’s Testament along with a string of related crimes.

Baldric is falling in love with Sandy breaking the rules of heaven and places her in danger because Luc is waiting in the wings to pounce at his given moment.

The Wards of Campbell Ridge fight with Heaven’s Warrior Angels in an epic supernatural battle against Luc and his demons to save one of The Chosen.

“D.F. Jones does it again. Definitely, a book you’ll want to sink your teeth into. So well written, great plot, and entertaining characters that you can’t help to fall in love. A definite page-turner. This Series had me at book one, and I couldn’t put it down. Each story brings you closer to each character, but this one was by far my absolute favorite. This book tells Sandy’s story. I love her. And Baldric, what’s not to love about him. This book is too good to give away too much so I’ll just say that if I were an angel, this book would have me sprinkling love dust all over the place. High five DF Jones. Remarkable Read!”

“This is the third book in the Ditch Lane Diaries. The first two books were good, but this one surpasses them. Don’t get me wrong; I love all the books. However, this book is my favorite of them all. The series follows the story of three friends; each book focuses on one. This is Sandy’s story, and my, what a story! It combines suspense, romance, and supernatural elements, creating an unforgettable tale.”

“The author wrapped up the series well and ties most of the loose ends. The book is well written, the characters were vivid, and the story was gripping and sucked you right in from the start. This is a story about powerful love, loss, family, trust, and good vs., evil. As the tale gets underway, it has you grasping for more. If you didn’t read the series, I suggest you start with the first book as each book is tied to the next one. Highly recommended!”

To Support a King by Lane MacFarland

Description:
The Turnberry Legacy Series
At the turn of the fourteenth century, danger abounds with Scotland’s leadership in flux. Amidst rumors of King Edward reinstating John Balliol to the throne, Robert the Bruce commands his most trusted men to resurrect The Turnberry Bond, a pact specifying loyal Scots and Irish nobles band together in resistance against all adversaries. Follow the rebel warriors fighting for the rightful king of Scotland and their struggle with honor and love as their lives become intertwined with the brave women who challenge them.

To Support a King ~ Book One

Plagued by atrocities he committed against innocent victims while pursuing his father’s killers, Laird Mangus MacAndrew pledged to defend and provide for his clan. But his leadership is tested when two of his ships are attacked and his crews massacred. Desperate to fulfill his obligation to protect the clan, Mangus agrees to help reinstate The Turnberry Bond. His mission—garner support for the Bruce and avenge the deaths of his men.

The MacAndrew clan provides Catriona Butler something her Irish home could not, a safe haven. But when she receives a missive her brother is imprisoned and will be executed unless acceptable éraic can be obtained, she must return to her homeland.

Mangus agrees to take Catriona to Ireland and vows she will not become a distraction, but he longs to be near her. Catriona witnesses Mangus’s fierce anger and grows distrustful. After a life of suffering her father’s vicious temper, she is skeptical of anyone with a penchant for violence. She attempts to keep her distance, but her traitorous heart pulls her in Mangus’s direction.

With the fate of the kingdom on his shoulders, will Mangus reunite the men of The Turnberry Bond? Can he pursue vengeance against his enemies without taking more innocent lives? And can Catriona free her brother and grow to trust Mangus, staying true to her heart?

My Review:

This is the second book I’ve read from Lane MacFarland. To support a King is the first book of the Turnberry Legacy. I love reading books from medieval Scotland. The author’s ability to transport the reader into the time period in vivid detail enriches the journey as the characters travel from Scotland to Ireland.

The action packed novel kept me turning the pages to see if Catriona would save the life of her brother or the man she loves, the Scottish Laird, Mangus. Oops…No spoilers!

Mangus and Catriona’s love story evolves from sweet to steamy as the narrative pushes forward. 

The twist at the end is brilliant!

If you love Historical Romance then this is the book for you!

Master from the USA Today Bestselling Impossible Series by Julia Sykes

Description
Master is a standalone romantic suspense novel in the USA Today Bestselling Impossible Series by Julia Sykes

I’m hunting down the most heinous criminal I’ve ever encountered. The man known to us only as The Mentor abducts and tortures women. And now he’s set his sights on me.

My sexy new partner Reed Miller is determined to protect me, and he insists on staying close. Too close. His allure frightens me almost as much as the sadistic man who is stalking me. I have to trust him if we’re going to work together, but trust isn’t something that comes easily for me.

To save my life, Reed demands that I give him my heart.

Note: While Master is Book 6 in the Impossible Series, it can be read as a standalone romantic suspense novel.

My Review 

Reed is brought in to work with Katie on the Mentor case. Mentor sets his sight of terror, fear, and intimidation toward Katie. The plot thickens with three possible suspects. Little notes left by Mentor let’s her know that he watches her every move.

Reed (love the name) vows to protect Katie who insists she can take care of herself. As the dynamic duo gets closer to the case, so does their relationship. Major heat, and I mean steamy, Fifty Shades heat, fires up the pages.

This is the first book I’ve read from Julia Sykes but not the last. I have to read the series. Her ability to weave a suspense yet passionate love story is a skill, and she nailed it!

Description
Terry Dunbar had it all growing up: a loving family, a comfortable home, and drop-dead gorgeous looks. She’s a dynamic attorney and a successful business woman. Men fall at her feet and promise her the moon. The spirit of a long-dead ancestress visits her, but she takes it all in stride.

Occupied with her law practice and business endeavors, she has little time for love interests or paranormal appearances.

All that changes when she meets history professor Kyle Avery, hired to research her mother’s family tree. Kyle’s head is too deep in musty old records to notice Terry. Reports of ghostly sightings and haunted rooms hold his interest, interfering with her attempts to attract the nerdy but handsome historian. 

Terry wonders if she’ll have to give him a little push to get his attention. But when an angry specter gives Kyle the first disastrous shove, the race is on for Terry to find answers to old family secrets before malevolent spirits harm her family further. 

Is her heirloom sapphire cross the key to breaking the spell that binds the 18th century ghost to her world?
