Cinderella. What comes after The End. Or Three months after the happy ever after

Three months after the happy ever after
So Cinderella married Prince Charming and they all lived happily ever after. The End.
Three months after the wedding, Cinderella sat in the dining room of the palace. Alone. Again. Her husband, Prince Charming, or Albert as he now insisted on being called, had left at the crack of dawn to go hunting.  This time it was for deer. The previous day it had been hare and the day before that... She couldn’t even remember the day before that. The three weeks previously, he had been touring the country for some charity or other playing polo. In fact she couldn’t even remember the last time he had had breakfast with her.
She tapped her fingers on the table trying to think. Oh, the honeymoon, that was it. They had spent two weeks on the beach, walking hand in hand on the sand, sleeping under the stars, doing things couples in love did on their honeymoon.
The thing was, as soon as they got back to the castle things changed. Albert threw himself back int…

Kicking Eternity by Ann Lee Miller

Blurb: Stuck in sleepy New Smyrna Beach one last summer, Raine socks away her camp pay checks, worries about her druggy brother, and ignores trouble: Cal Koomer. She’s a plane ticket away from teaching orphans in Africa, and not even Cal’s surfer six-pack and the chinks she spies in his rebel armor will derail her. The artist in Cal begs to paint Raine’s ivory skin, high cheek bones, and internal sparklers behind her eyes, but falling for her would caterwaul him into his parents’ live. No thanks. The girl was self-righteous waiting to happen. Mom served sanctimony like vegetables, three servings a day, and he had a gut full. Rec Director Drew taunts her with “Rainey” and calls her an enabler. He is so infernally there like a horsefly—till he buzzes back to his ex. Raine’s brother tweaks. Her dream of Africa dies small deaths. Will she figure out what to fight for and what to free before it’s too late?

Future Savior bk 3 Evacuation by Jennifer Hartz

bk 3
Blurb:
Faith… it seems to be revolving around everything I do and it is a hard lesson to learn. I have to have faith that I can save my brother. I have to have faith that my friends scattered all over Meric will survive. I have to have faith that all of Shaw's secrets are coming to an end. I even have to have faith in my own abilities.

The evil tyrant Leticia has sent out her dark priest Neamiah to persuade the people of Meric that she is god. The people must take her mark or die. My greatest test of faith lies ahead… I have to prove to the people of Meric that Leticia's claim to lordship is false and that the Creator is the real God.

Review:
As expected this is another heart stopping read from the pen or rather keyboard of fantasy author, Jennifer Hartz. Evacuation carries on from where Resurrection left off. Even more action, and wonderful Biblical parallels lead our band of friends from one adventure to another in their quest to defeat the evil one. Perfect for a summ…

He shook his head. “Me thinks the lady doth cheat.” “I am so not cheating.” Liam’s hand came up to cup her face, and Jacqui caught her breath as his other arm slid around her waist. She moved her hands to his waist, her touch so light, but centering his focus fully on her. Her body was soft under his fingers, and as his lips brushed against hers, jolts of electricity pulsed through him. He pulled her against him, her softness melding with his firmness. Her scent filled him, and her touch reverberated through him, sending his mind spinning. He’d thought a kiss was a kiss, but th…

Covers for the rest of the series.

I got the final four covers for the rest of the Monday's Child series. Nicola has done a fantastic job on them. Thank you so, so much. :)

Here are the covers with the provisional blurbs.

Senior prosecutor for the CPS, Niamh wakes in hospital after an accident with no knowledge of who she is or what happened. A tall man in a fire-fighter’s uniform sits beside her holding her hand. Jared claims he's her husband. Is he really? Or is he after something else? 
First on the scene at the accident, Jared Harkin is devastated when his wife no longer recognises him. Determined to help her remember, he sets about wooing her all over again, only to find this time around he has a rival
Does her current caseload have anything to do with the fact her brakes were cut or is it just coincidence she was threatened hours before the crash? Will she regain her memory before the person trying to kill her succeeds?

Patrick Page’s fast paced life as an intelligence officer for the British Government—o…

So here is the said passage from my upcoming release Tuesday's Child.

Blurb: Tuesday's Child tenders direction... Deaf from the age of five, Adeline Munroe now runs the local dolls hospital with her best friend Jasmine and constant companion, hearing dog, Ben. Haunted by visions, she 'sees' each murder either as or just before they happen. Detective Sergeant Nate Holmes is investigating the herbalist serial killings. Things are complicated when he falls for one of the witnesses. As more women die, and Adeline becomes the prime target, is time running out for them both?


By the time Ben told Adeline there was someone at the door at seven fifteen, the kitchen no longer resembled the bomb site it had been all afternoon. The flour had been cleared off the surfaces and floor, batter wiped from the cupboard doors and Vianne’s face. She even picked t…
