When Rome Falls

Well, summer is finally here is my little corner of Wisconsin. It took forever, but now even the mosquitos are enjoying the heat. I gave up in surrender. They can have the outside while I hide inside.

In other news, When Rome Falls has been released. Yay! And, there are a ton of things happening over at Pierce Patrol. You can answer the question of the month or you can get in on one of the giveaways. Head over to Pierce Patrol and join the fun.

Excerpt from When Rome Falls:

Rome had done a lot of stupid things in his life, but carrying Bethany had to be one of the dumbest. Fortunately, he was almost to the house where he could deposit his cargo on the couch and go take an ice-cold shower.

As soon as Bethany had wrapped her arms and legs around him, her body clinging to his, he had realized his mistake. But what was he supposed to do? Watching her hobble home in pain wasn’t an option.

So now her light breath tickled his neck, her clean citrus scent circled around him, her breasts pressed against his back, and her legs . . . oh, her legs were wrapped around him, spurring intensely inappropriate thoughts. Ones that he had no business thinking.

Instead of allowing the mind-consuming sensations to continue, he thought about all the reasons he couldn’t take her to one of their rooms and make his thoughts a reality.

One, he was not an animal. Although, he rather felt like one at the moment.

Two, her feet hurt. Although, he could make the rest of her feel better.

Three, it was against company rules. To hell with the rules.

Four, she was engaged.

He held on to that thought until they made it to the house and he deposited her onto the couch.

I need Rome!

Haven't checked out Rio yet? What are you waiting for?

I want Rio!

Have a great July. I'll be back in August with more news.

It's Christmas in July! PLEASURES OF CHRISTMAS PAST on sale for 99¢

Pleasures of Christmas Past 
(A Scottish Christmas Carol #1)
by Lexi Post

When present-day American social worker Jessica Thomas is assigned her first case as a spirit guide, she’s excited to serve as the Spirit of Christmas Past for her client and prove she knows her profession well. Unfortunately, her mentor, the very hot, very single, and very Scottish Duncan Montgomerie has little faith in her ability and plans to catch her when she falls. As far as she’s concerned, he’s going to be waiting a very long time.  

Bachelor Duncan Montgomerie hails from late 18th century Scotland where he enjoyed life to its fullest, something he continues in death. Having been dead a while, he is well equipped to handle the afterlife where time doesn’t exist and phasing is the norm. What has him stymied is his connection to the uptight Jessica and the strange feelings he’s experiencing being around her, even though she refuses to listen to his advice. Duncan needs to figure out what it all means and fast because the rules change after death and the path Jessica is headed down could cost her her soul.

Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave

I love novels set in London, and this one is during 1939-1942.  A cruel and heart shaping time.   A time when the least likely people are thrown together to survive the part they played in World War Two.
 Mary North didn't care that her father was a Parliamentary representative, her mother an elite house wife, she still wanted to be a spy.  Finding out that won't be in her options, she jumped into the idea of becoming a teacher.  Her teaching became a small, yet significant avenue for the forgotten children.  The children who were disabled or poor and weren't sent to the country to avoid the war.
 Tom Shaw, a man educated for his position as a teacher, did not have the same background or assets available to Mary.  But he had something else she wanted.    Everyone Brave Is Forgiven
 Several sub characters help set the mood.  Alistair, long-time friend of Tom, enlisted, and the unbelievable horrors of fighting the Germans affects his psyche.  Yet, Alistair has a profound effect on Tom and Mary while attempting to hide his nightmares.  Zachary showed love and compassion as he attempted to learn the impossible as a young, partially illiterate boy whom Mary devoted her newfound skills to making him whole.
 A handful of other close friends and family make footprints in the story.  All the lives exposed in Everyone Brave is Forgiven, highlight what the people think, feel, and how they react to everything big and small.  The fact that true love can be fertilized during a war, is evidence of the power love has over the destructions of war.
 Cleave's inspiration grew from love letters between his grandparents.  Wow, would I like to read those!

Read every day!

Time Weavers, Inc. Book #1
by Lexi Post

For fans of sexy Scottish Highlanders who know how to treat a woman like a lady.

When someone changes history, it can affect the future. That’s when Diana Montgomery, the most experienced agent of Time Weavers, Inc., steps in. This time her mission takes her back to the year 1306, Scotland to find the culprit, and ensure a minor clan chief dies in battle as he originally had.

Diana is well-prepared to infiltrate the small MacPherson clan. What she’s not prepared for is Torr MacPherson, the ruggedly handsome warrior with a kind heart and steadfast loyalty. One look from him and heat sears through her bloodstream.

But, he’s the Laird who has to die to re-set history.

"This was one of those books I became obsessed with...I'm talking "almost falling up the stairs because I'm so focused on reading the book instead of looking where I'm walking." While this is the first Lexi book I have read, it definitely won't be my last.  The story didn't go in the direction I thought it would, and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the unpredictability.  I was also in tears towards the end at a part I won't spoil for you. I can't wait for more books in this series!!!!" - Lauren S., NetGalley
