THE PROMISE OF CHANGE by REBECCA HEFLIN (women’s fiction /romance)

thepromiseofchange2_72dpi[1]This week’s Revolving Book is the contemporary romance THE PROMISE OF CHANGE by REBECCA HEFLIN.

PRICED RIGHT at $3.00 on amazon kindle http://www.amazon.com/The-Promise-of-Change-ebook/dp/B006QR2HL6

GENRE: women’s fiction/romance

PUBLISHER: Soul Mate Publishing: http://www.soulmatepublishing.com/the-promise-of-change/

SYNOPSIS:

Sarah Edwards loves stability, but now finds life has other plans for her. Divorced, bored, and twitchy, she’s convinced her impulsive, sometimes irrational decisions are the sign of a mid-life crisis, and the contradictory actions and emotions are giving her family and friends mental whiplash. Her abrupt resignation from her job is the final straw. But a two-week trip to England seems the perfect pick-me-up for this Anglophile and Austenite.

Enter Alex Fraser, a.k.a. the Earl of Rutherford, who although a member of the lucky sperm club, prefers to be known for what he’s accomplished, rather than a fate of birth. Despite his family’s disapproval, he is determined to work in his chosen profession of acting. He’s always preferred casual flings with beautiful women who have no illusions of marriage. That is until he literally bumps into Sarah in an Oxford pub.

Despite an idyllic week together, Sarah gets cold feet and returns to the States determined to come back down to reality. A year later, the realization of Sarah’s life-long dream unexpectedly brings Alex back into her life, in what she believes is an ironic twist of fate. Will Sarah’s decisions leave her life in shambles, or will they lead to the promise of change?

“The novel is riveted with allusions to Austen and readers will see a plot unfold that is not unlike a storyline from Austen; some pride, a little deception and plenty of romance fill these pages, making the novel a fun read.” –Rachel Sale, INsite Magazine

http://www.insitegainesville.com/blog/2012/04/the-promise-of-change-book-review/

“Author Rebecca Heflin gives the reader much pause for thought as betrayals come full circle, misunderstandings come to light, promises are broken and others are made proving that The Promise of Change is the promise of excitement, great things to come and what’s more a great novel that promises to keep the reader riveted to the printed page until the final scene is played or in this case written.” — Fran Lewis

HIS MISTLETOE BRIDE by VANESSA KELLY (historical romance)

TUESDAY’S REVOLVING BOOK is the regency historical romance HIS MISTLETOE BRIDE by VANESSA KELLY.

WHERE YOU CAN BUY THE BOOK:
Kindle: http://tinyurl.com/9zo4d3e

SYNOPSIS:
Blame It On The Mistletoe . . .

When Major Lucas Stanton inherited his earldom, he never dreamed his property would include the previous earl’s granddaughter. Phoebe Linville is a sparkling American beauty, yes, but with a talent for getting into trouble. Witness the compromising position that forced them into wedlock. Whisked away to Mistletoe Manor, his country estate, it isn’t long before she is challenging his rules–and surprising him in and out of bed–

Phoebe has no intention of bowing to Lucas’s stubbornness even though he offers all that she wants. His kisses and unexpected warmth are enticing, but Phoebe is determined to show the earl of Merritt what real love is all about. And if that takes twelve nights of delicious seduction by a roaring fire, she’s more than willing to reveal her gifts very slowly–

REVIEWS:
“Kelly combines wit, innocent sensuality, and seduction in this tale of a forced marriage between a beautiful plain-speaking pacifist Quaker and a handsome war hero who inherits a rundown earldom. In 1817, Phoebe Linville leaves joyless Philadelphia and the strident lectures of her half-brother for a new life in London under the loving protection of her aristocratic grandfather. When her grandfather dies, she becomes the “possession” of Maj. Lucas Stanton, the new Lord Merritt. A challenging adventure ensues when a determined Phoebe and stubborn Lucas wind up in a compromising position that requires them to wed. Compassionate Phoebe has her hands full, between loving a lord whose heart was broken by another and hiding secrets about smugglers. Regency fans will enjoy the lessons on Christmas traditions, the art of seduction, and the triumph of reconciliation and love.” ~ Publishers Weekly

“Kelly pairs an aristocratic former military officer with a young American Quaker in this emotionally intense and beautifully crafted novel. With a small overview of Quaker life, and a large dose of romance, Kelly satisfies readers till the last page.” ~ 4 stars, RT Book Reviews

“Wildly sexy and romantic, this unforgettable Christmas tale of a seemingly impossible love will warm your heart and send you straight to the mistletoe.” ~ Kieran Kramer, USA Today bestselling author of Regency romance.

“What an enchanting holiday tale…a delectable treat and the reward, a jolly good Christmas treat!” ~ 4 ½ stars, Affaire de Coeur Book Reviews
