Sanctuary

newmar1Here’s a great new romantic suspense. I just finished yesterday, and really enjoyed this one. It has a unique premise and a riveting plot. Lots of action. Lots of mystery. Lots of reading goodness. Here’s the nitty gritty on this new book by Traci Abramson.

Synopsis

Kristi Hartinger has come to terms with her life as a single, thirty-something woman. She was in love . . . once. But following her boyfriend’s tragic death, no one else could capture her heart. And nothing else could fill that void, though the serenity of the ocean came close. Two years ago, Kristi left the craziness of her Wall Street career behind and embraced a simpler life on her family’s private island off the coast of Maine. As a resident of the small beach community, she anticipates a quiet future until she comes face-to-face with her past. Continue reading

The Songs that Brought Me Back

This book’s coming out in a month–December 4th. I just finished beta-reading an early copy, and I really connected with the characters and story. Here’s the blurb:

Have you ever made a mistake? One so monumental you lost everything? I did, and I hate myself for it! All I want to do is close my eyes, and let the darkness consume me. Make it all go away. The end.

One she hopes will end everything. Instead, she’s thrown into a whole new world filled with opportunities she doesn’t believe she deserves. Continue reading

The Shipbuilder’s Wife

shipI’m participating in another blog tour this week and am excited to share this new book with you. The Shipbuilder’s Wife by Jennifer Moore was SOOOOO good!!!! I read it in just over a day. It was super hard to put down because the plot was so new and intriguing.

Here’s the blurb:

The day of her parents’ garden party dawns bright as Lydia Prescott eagerly anticipates a marriage proposal from a handsome and wealthy plantation owner. The lovely debutante plans to steal a moment away with her beau, but her plans go terribly awry. Instead of her intended, she is joined by a stranger—the largest man she’s ever laid eyes on. And it is clear Jacob Steele is there for reasons far more sober than the party. With British raids erupting all around them, it is his job to reassure plantation owners of their safety. In reality, however, Jacob is an espionage agent, and the truth is dire: America is on the verge of invasion by the British. Blissfully unaware of the danger surrounding her, Lydia basks in the glow of her recent engagement. But her joy is short-lived—a surprise British attack results in a devastating wound, and her plans for the future are shattered. Lost in her devastation, Lydia could never dream that Jacob, that giant of a man she met so briefly, would prove to be her saving grace. And with a war raging around them, she may be called upon to save him too. Continue reading

My Dearest Enemy

Here’s the latest by Jennifer Moore. I love her historical romances, and this one was set in a unique period of time. Canada. Early 1800’s when England fought against the States (again). I love learning about small pieces of history through fictional stories, and this nibble of history I hadn’t run into before, so I wanted to share. Here’s the synopsis (And don’t you LOVE that cover?):

Blurb

coverStruggling alone on the family farm, Abigail Tidwell knows exactly who to blame for her hardships: the Americans. If it weren’t for their part in the war, her father and brothers would be home rather than fighting abroad. But no amount of antipathy could have prepared her for the shocking sight of a wounded American soldier on her property, a man in dire need of her help. Grudgingly, Abigail tends to the soldier’s injuries and anticipates the satisfaction of turning him over to the authorities once he is healed. But fate has other plans. Captain Emmett Prescott remembers little of the ambush on his men by a group of Shawnee Indians and even less about how he arrived in the unfamiliar barn. Continue reading
