New Release ~ HER ROCK by Reina Torres


Her Rock

Center City First Responders, Book 2


Reina Torres

If there's someone in pain or in need in Center City, these courageous men and women are there to help. Fire, Police, Medical and Dispatch: they'll be there.

Her Rock
Martin "Rock" Ferris & Kate Turner

A Sergeant in the CCPD, Kate Turner has always known what she wanted to do with her life. She wasn’t the kind of person who could sew up a wound or deliver a baby… okay, she’d done that once, back when she was on patrol, but now her job was watching out for her people and making them better officers. Who was watching out for her? She didn’t need someone to do that, thank you very much!

Martin “Rock” Ferris was a man who would walk through fire for his friends and did so on a regular basis as a member of the Rescue Crew from House 29. As broad in the shoulder as he was brave, he never left anyone behind and he was always there to lend a hand in the thick of a crisis. The problem in his life was that the very person he wanted to protect more than anyone else didn’t want him around.

It wasn’t that they weren’t compatible. They knew how to get along fine enough when they had their hands on each other and their clothes off. And while Kate used her sharp tongue to tell him exactly where to step off, she also knew exactly how to drive him wild. And when she let him, he returned the favor over and over again.

But that’s all she’ll give him. Those stolen moments in the dark. Kate doesn’t want to let him into her heart. Men don’t stick around for long and she’ll never give Rock the chance to break her heart into a thousand pieces. When her world is upside down and everything is falling down around her ears, she knows her family is there for her, but she’ll never let them see the abject fear and deadly doubt that’s creeping into her mind. She hides that away and puts on a brave face.

Martin is determined to tear down her walls because he knows that he’s ready to stand there between her and danger. He’ll always be Her Rock.

Author Bio ~

Books have always been a big part of my life. Reading was an escape from my classmates who teased me because of my speech impediment. Books were the walls of my castle, protecting my fortress, and allowed me to bask in the sunlight of my beautiful labyrinth filled with fantasies. Now, I hope that I can share that same gift with others. If I can give them a place of shelter, of joy, and yes… love, then I will count myself blessed.

Veronica Reviews - A POCKET IN TIME by Lexi Post


A Pocket in Time 

(Time Weavers Inc. #2)


Lexi Post



Historical/Time Travel Romance

"Love is the only reason to be alive.  To die with never knowing what it’s like to love and be loved is the cruelest sentence.”

Welcome to Time Weavers, Inc. (TWI), where the agents have the power to travel in time to fix ripples caused by the Disruptors.

Katz Almira grew up on the streets and is now using her street smarts to be one of the best agents TWI employs…one of the best agents to bend the rules just a wee bit to make sure the job gets done.  Her newest mission is to travel back to Regency London and intercept a note that was placed in the wrong hands causing a disruption to the timeline in the future.  Posing as a fellow pickpocket, Katz befriends a group of lost boys to get in good with their benefactor Lord John Byron.  But the one thing Katz didn’t plan on was falling in love with her mark.  With the future of the world at stake, Katz must decide if creating a pocket in time is worth saving her love…

LOVED IT!  LOVED IT! LOVED IT!  Oh, did I mention I LOVED IT!  Regency romances are a fav, and add the time travel “Quantum Leap” scenario, and this chick is one happy reader!  Katz is as strong a heroine you could ask for that falls for a hero that manages to melt the ice she’s built around her heart.  Impossible to put down and one of my fav reads of the year! 

While this is the second in the Time Weavers, Inc. series, the author has written it to be stand alone.  Loved and highly recommend!!


Here’s a cheat sheet of the Rules for Time Weavers, Inc., (TWI) Agents:

Rule One:  Don’t change history; only change it back.
Rule Two:  Never travel back to a period and place already visited.
Rule Three:  Travel no more than once a day.
Rule Four:  Do not hint at anything in the future.
Rule Five:  Do not make friends.

Sharing what I love,

How I Write


           Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
Dinner is in the oven (I’m making one of my mother’s favorite dishes), salads are prepared for the week, fruit & veggies are cut up and in containers for the week as well, so I have a few minutes.
It’s been a busy weekend for me. In addition to my regular weekend chores, I cleaned my guest room and hung up new curtains. It looks nice in there. Since no one has come to visit for quite some time (my son surprised me last June), the room has become a repository for things that don’t have a permanent place so I put things away in their forever home. And while I was at it, I tossed a bunch of stuff and filled a couple boxes for the Salvation Army. 
And I finished doing my taxes. I am relieved that it’s over for another year. I do my own (I love TurboTax) and I like to do them early. No waiting until April 15 for me.
Doing my taxes so early frees up my time for more important things…like writing. That’s not to say that I write fast. I don’t. I write in the mornings, before the world is awake (from 4:45 to 6am) and I average between 300 and 500 words in that space of time (which, to some, I’m sure, is not a lot, but it is steady and I do it most weekday mornings before the day job).
Sometimes I struggle. A lot. Sometimes the blank page and blinking cursor are intimidating, but I always come back to “you can’t edit a blank page” so I persevere, even if it’s not good (yes, I have given myself permission to write absolute crap). Dialogue is definitely not my strong suit, and yet, when I’m writing a new scene, it’s always the dialogue that goes in first. Not sure why that is. Once the dialogue is in, I go back and put in my tags and descriptions. I’m sure others don’t do it this way and probably think I’m nuts, but it works for me.
The other thing I do, particularly if I’m struggling in the current scene, is jump ahead. I know! I’m definitely not a linear writer. I think if I was forced to go from Chapter One to the epilogue without jumping ahead, it would stifle me. For those who are linear writers, I envy you. I really do. I don’t think I have ever completed a story that way. It’s always been Chapter One, Chapter 10, Chapter 6, Epilogue, Chapter 2 until eventually all the chapters are in place.
Ah, the timer just went off on my oven…dinner is ready.
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

New Release ~ A POCKET IN TIME by Lexi Post


A Pocket In Time

(Time Weavers, Inc. Book 2)


Lexi Post

Katz Almira’s mission is clear—travel to the past, steal the note that ruins the world, travel back to the present. Easy. She’s the best pickpocket Time Weavers, Inc. has ever had. Posing as a poor widow in Regency London, she convinces her target, Lord John Byron, a man as sexy as he is wealthy, to take her in off the streets. But at her request to keep her hidden, instead of his cushy manor, he allows her to stay in a warehouse full of orphan boys he cares for there.

It’s the perfect place to hide, and bonus, her new roommates can help her find the mysterious note. With John as their pseudo-father, they know what he does every day, and with who. Katz can’t afford any distractions, but she soon finds herself getting attached to the orphans—and John—even helping him plan for their futures.

Each day she spends in the past is another day closer to her deadline, another day closer to returning to her own time, and another day John and this makeshift family get dangerously closer to her heart. But Katz staying in the past would have dire consequences for them all…
