SYNOPSIS:

She was raised as an American Princess

Following the betrayal of a former lover, Sara Sherbrooke swore off relationships, too afraid she would be used again. Instead she has devoted all her energy to succeeding in politics without relying on her family name. That is until one night in Hawaii with her brother’s best friend Christopher Hall.

He is a self-made billionaire

Technological genius and CEO of Hall Technology, Christopher Hall first met Sara Sherbrooke when he and Jake Sherbrooke were college roommates. While attending Jake’s wedding in Hawaii, Christopher is reintroduced to Sara, a beauty who was once way out of his league. But now as the most eligible bachelor in Silicon Valley, the only thing stopping Christopher from pursuing Sara is the thought of betraying his best friend.

As they work together to promote a new education initiative, neither can deny the attraction between them. But will their growing romance be worth all of the
Consequences?

REVIEWS:
5 Stars! Really enjoyable…found it hard to put down. I would recommend to people who enjoy a romantic story, and great ending. Barbara Jolly http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A1HFAV1BH7C3BG/ref=cm_cr_pr_pdp

I have looked forward to the release of this book since I finished book 2. The wait was worth it. We are reintroduced to Sara who we met in book 1. She was hard to like in the first book but after learning her story I have fallen in love with her character as I have all Christina Tetreault’s characters. This author skillfully develops her stories and characters and you end up being swept away by her stories. Well worth your time to read this book.

AUTHOR BIO:

I wrote my first story with characters similar to those in the Sweet Valley Twins books at the age of 10 on my grandmother’s manual typewriter. As I got older my stories and characters became more mature. During my freshman year at UMass Dartmouth, I read my first romance novel and fell in love with the genre. I have been writing contemporary romance ever since.

Today I live with my husband, three beautiful daughters and two dogs in Massachusetts. Whenever I have a free moment you’ll find me either reading a romance novel or working on my most current story

The Birr Elixir by Jo Sparkes (fantasy/epic fantasy)

UnknownFantastic Friday’s Book is the fantasy THE BIRR ELXIR by JO SPARKES.

BUY IT: Priced right at .99 cents!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

When a young apprentice makes a mysterious elixir from a recipe in an old book, she’s suddenly the talisman for a daring Gamesman – and the weapon in the conspiracy against a prince.
Marra had never heard of Birr Elixir.

But when Drail of the Hand of Victory saw the words in an old book, she found herself agreeing to make it. Even lacking the right ingredient.

And after drinking it, the Hand of Victory defeated a Skullan team, something no one had ever done before. Now Drail walked the path his grandsire had walked, and Marra was offered a place as Brista, his potions mistress. She doubted her ability, but took the chance to escape her slave-like existence.

When she found a way to wake the mysterious sleeper, Marra wondered if she deserved the title after all.

But with Tryst’s waking, ill luck and bad things suddenly dogged their tracks. Drail, being a man of action, saw only the good in people. Marra lacked his faith, but was frozen by her own timidity. When the time came to confront these enemies, would Tryst stand with them or against them?

Would it make any difference?

REVIEWS:

The Birr Elixir Keeps Readers Hooked – Andrew Keyser, Portland Book Review

Author Jo Sparkes proves to be an outstanding author with this light-hearted fantasy tale. She makes creating a believable, likeable world look easy … for a fun story with an imaginative world and an exciting sport, look no further than Jo Sparkes’ book The Birr Elixir.A Wonderful Story …

Nicua Shamira, Terraverum

This is a wonderful story that just sucked me in from the first few pages. There are secrets and delicious intrigue that keep you guessing. Skillfully written, colourful and exciting, I enjoyed the Birr Elixir immensely and looking forward to the next book.

SNEAK PEEK:

http://birrelixir.com/first-20-pages/

AUTHOR:

A well-known Century City Producer once said Jo Sparkes “… writes some of the best dialogue I’ve read.” Not only are those words a compliment to Jo’s skills as a writer, but a true reflection of her commitment to her work as a screenwriter.

Jo Sparkes graduated Magna Cum Laude from Washington College, a small liberal arts college famous for its creative writing program. Some years later, she renounced life in the corporate world to pursue her passion for writing. Jo went on to study for two years with Robert Powell; a student of renowned writers and teachers Lew Hunter, and Richard Walter, head and heart of UCLA’s Screenwriting Program. The culmination of those years of hard work was the short-film “The Image”, which Jo wrote and produced single-handedly.

Since then, Jo hasn’t looked back. Jo’s body of work includes scripts for Children’s live-action and animated television programs, a direct to video Children’s DVD, commercial work for corporate clients, as well as a being a feature writer on ReZoom.com. As a contributing writer for the Arizona Sports Fans Network — where she has been called their most popular writer — she was known for her humorous articles, player interviews and game coverage. Jo was unofficially the first to interview Emmitt Smith when he arrived in Arizona to play for the Cardinals.

She had the privilege to adjunct teach at the Film School at Scottsdale Community College, and even made a video of one of her presentations. Her new book, “Feedback How to Give It How to Get It”, is from the lessons shared. It truly is a writer’s — and any artist’s — guide to spinning gold.

When not diligently perfecting her craft, Jo can be found exploring her new home of Portland, Oregon, with her husband Ian, and their dog Oscar.

When Marly Landers is fooled by con man Charlie Meese, she’s determined to bring him to justice–even if it means dressing up as a boy and setting off across the plains to find him.

Texas Ranger Jase Strachan is also after Meese, for crimes committed in Texas. He joins forces with the young boy in a journey that takes them to Fortuna, where a murder interrupts their mission. Jase is duty bound to find the killer, no matter the cost.

Marly carries out her own investigation and comes to the aid of Amabelle Egan, the sister of one of the suspects. But appearances are deceiving, and Marly is mistaken for Amabelle’s suitor, making her a target for the killer. Not to mention, Charlie Meese is still out there.

Under the Texas stars, Marly and Jase are drawn together by circumstances beyond their control, yet fate plots to tear them apart. Will Marly finally get her man?

REVIEWS:

A rollicking adventure of romance and True Grit… This is an historical Western romance in a style that reminds me of Hemingway. Although the descriptions are colorful and accurate, there are no wasted words here as the characters are developed through dialogue and action. The old West comes to life! Highly recommended. Goodreads http://tinyurl.com/cnpkuo7

Good old-fashioned historic western romance with a kick!
Alison Bruce does an excellent job on setting the scenes and customs of the old west. History, characterizations, and the long ride of the heroes of the story are convincing for the time. There is lots of action and gun-play as they work together on a case in Fortuna. … If you’re looking for a dish of the old west with a dash of romance and humor minus the raunch dressing, this book is for you. Goodreads http://tinyurl.com/cnpkuo7

“Alison Bruce captures the Old West in a delightful, if improbable, mix of romance, cultures and characters with UNDER A TEXAS STAR” Goodreads http://tinyurl.com/cnpkuo7 – Areletta Dawdy (4 stars)

Baseball reporter Maddie Leclair has spent years chasing her dream job—covering the major league team, the Philadelphia Patriots. Now that she’s landed the assignment she intends to make it big, with feature articles on the front page of every sports section in the country. But to do that, she needs to score an interview with the most private and elusive athlete in baseball, Patriots’ superstar Jake Miller.

On the rebound from a devastating injury that knocked him out of play for a season, Jake has a lot to prove to the suits in the front office. He’s sure he still has what it takes to win, and he’ll be damned if he lets anything get in the way of his climb back to the top.

The last thing Jake needs is a pushy female reporter distracting him. But one look at Maddie and he knows he’s in trouble. He finds himself trying for a different kind of play, one that involves bedrooms and not baseball stats. Sleeping together could damage both their careers, and Maddie is all about saying no. But when it comes to the game of love, Jake is playing to win.

After her favorite aunt is found dead and an alarming box is mysteriously left on the doorstep of her aunt’s house now legally hers, Lavinia Esposito wants explanations.

Frustrated by the cops’ refusal to share their theories, criminal justice instructor Lavinia Esposito, a.k.a. Vinnie, takes investigation matters into her own hands.

Vinnie is soon dragged into situations beyond her control, finding herself in hot water with the law, the crooks, and her Italian father.

Willing to put her life at risk to find out what really happened to her beloved Aunt Livvy, and why  jewels would be addressed to her aunt, Vinnie plunges ahead with her usual tenacity, bravery, and keen wits to solve and survive this mystery.

REVIEWS:

FOR LOVE OF LIVVY HAS RECEIVED 4 AND 5 STAR REVIEWS!

“For Love of Livvy” by J.M. Griffin is a sparkling debut to the sassy and saucy Vinnie Esposito series. Vinnie is a memorable heroine in the spirit of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. I am loving “For Love of Livvy” as well as Vinnie’s other adventures! LUSCIOUS READER

I read, I loved and can’t wait for more of Vinnie’s antics. Warm, funny and interesting story. — JAMIE MILLS

Strong heroine.  Strong Hero.  Strong secondary characters.  Loved the life-sized images of little old Rhode Island.  Vinnie had me laughing from start to finish….but she needs to cut down on the caffeine  {wink, wink}
Oh, and the cat!  Forgot his name….but he was a character too.  I think I’ve met him somewhere.  I highly recommend this fun mystery. —B MARRIOTT

J. M. Griffin is a student of the human condition, wielding the written craft to stimulate the imagination much like she wields her paint brush. The pages are a blank canvas on which JM draws vivid characters. For Love of Livvy is the first in a series of novels featuring Lavinia Vinnie Esposito’s story. The series also includes “DEAD WRONG” and DIRTY TROUBLE. She is currently working on her next release in this entertaining and sassy series – watch for it soon! JM lives in rural Rhode Island, a state she considers colorful and interesting.
