SYNOPSIS:

Spunky, opinionated Katie McCullough has worked for years with one goal in mind–to own the ancient lighthouse and its surrounding buildings in Paige Point, Maryland. With the lighthouse in her possession, she can finally provide a home for her and Pop, something she and her brother had always planned, establish her art business and maybe, if she’s lucky, reunite with the mystery sailor who stole her heart five years earlier. All she has to do is place the winning bid and the lighthouse is hers. She isn’t worried. Who in their right mind would want to own a compound of dilapidated buildings anyway?

Max Sawyer, that’s who. Confident and decisive, this former military officer isn’t used to having his orders disobeyed. As a developer who specializes in transforming historic properties into boutique hotels and resort spas, the lighthouse property is perfect for his plans. Except his plans for this one have absolutely nothing to do with hotels and everything to do with winning Katie and revealing to her his connection to her brother’s death five years earlier, an event that still haunts him.

Max’s winning bid collapses Katie’s world like a grass hut in a storm. She is heartbroken and outraged when she assumes her beautiful lighthouse property will be turned into a tourist attraction. Max’s bossy sure-of-himself attitude incites a rebellious mischief-making streak that leads Katie to stealthy systematic dismantling of both the houses on the property…and his plans. Unfortunately for Katie, she is caught and assigned community service, working for him.

However, Katie doesn’t know that Max is her mystery lighthouse sailor, the one man who captured her heart five years earlier; the one man who has since been the plumb line for every other unsuspecting male who has crossed her path. Unfortunately for Max, he doesn’t measure up either. So, as any former military officer would do, Max accepts her call to battle stations, outmaneuvering her at every turn, forcing her to accept him as a man and not a memory and placing Katie in a position where she has no choice but to surrender her heart.

REVIEWS:

Kat Cook from Forever Book Lover says, “First, You will love this book!! It was that good. The storyline was refreshing, it was a lovely tale proving once again that love triumphs despite obstacles along the way. If you are looking for a hot passionate romance book, you won’t find it in this but what you will find is a sweet romantic story of two people finding their way to one another. You will be delighted in the bantering between Katie and Max, you may even find yourself chuckling out loud a time or two.”

Victoria Teoh from Always A Book Lover, says, ”I really enjoyed Keeper Of My Heart. A sweet, easy read that is impossible not to like. Definitely a recommended read.”

Martha’s Bookshelf says: “The story is sweet and heartwarming and the writing has an easy, light flow. This is a quick read and solidly entertaining. This story brought my attention to the author and the publisher and I will be looking to read more from both.”

Heather Boustead’s Reviews says, “I thoroughly enjoyed this book because it was light and fun. Darcy Flynn did an amazing job describing her scenes, though I wish there had been more to a few of the scenes themselves. That notwithstanding, for being a shorter book I couldn’t put it down. I loved the romance between Max and Katie with kisses and simple affection, rather than the reliance upon more carnal scenes found in most romance novels.”

TJ says, “Ms. Flynn’s gift with the pen in describing the charm of the beautiful sea-side lighthouse and it’s properties makes one yearn for the salt-scented peace and warm community it invokes. The strength of the story comes from that warmth which threads through, not only the feel of area, but the very people and their interactions.”

AUTHOR BIO:

Darcy was born into the rich culture of New Orleans, La.  As a city filled with colorful historical intrigue and broad creative energy, her natural bent to the arts coupled with her love for one of the most romantic cities in the world has been the inspiration and anchor of her artistic multi-dimension endeavors. Darcy was always compelled by the need to express herself and like her mother’s famous gumbo, her previous expressions included a little bit of everything – art, music, acting and dance.

Although, published in music, art and the Christian non-fiction market under another identity, it was the empty nest that turned Darcy to writing romantic fiction. A lover of lighthouses, Darcy’s first novel, Keeper Of My Heart, unfolds in a small Maryland fishing village on the Chesapeake Bay.

Darcy, a former Mrs. Tennessee, continues to be surrounded by all things creative in Music City and when not in writing in her London flat, lives on a beautiful horse farm in historic- Franklin, Tennessee with her husband, son, two English Setters and a calico cat.  Darcy enjoys stargazing, raising rare breed chickens and gardening.

SYNOPSIS:

Leif Dæganssen, an archeologist from Norway, is determined to trace back his Scandinavian roots as far as the Dark Ages and find proof of their existence on the Emerald Isle. After several years of living off the west coast of Ireland, he finally uncovers an ancient artifact—an intricately decorated chest with pagan carvings—buried beneath the very porch of his coastal cottage. Knowing it only confirms the presence of a glorified Norse-influenced settlement on Inis Mór, he’s determined to establish a link between himself and those who once inhabited the rugged isle.
For as long as she can remember, Lorraine O’Connor has had dreams of a Norse warrior kissing her. And even though she’s never fully understood the reason for her vivid subconscious imagination, she welcomes the meaningless and wanton pleasure of being in a Viking’s protective embrace—until the day she meets that brazen Northman on an impulsive vacation trip to Ireland.

Though blindsided by the relevance of her dreams and the strange familiarity of the man within them, Lorraine can’t help but feel a deep-seated intimacy toward Leif. And the more she gets to know him, the more she’s convinced they’ve shared a life together in a time long forgotten.

Are the clues to their ancestral past hidden within the contents of the chest or buried deep within their hearts?

REVIEWS:

“I didn’t believe it was possible to take Daegan and Mara’s incredible love story to another level, but I am extremely pleased to be wrong. The new paths with Leif and Lorraine and the journey back to some very memorable moments with Daegan and Mara are expertly crafted into one extraordinary story. The contemporary version of their fated and reincarnated love reads like new, but with a familiar comfort. All my senses were engaged upon reading this dramatic conclusion to the Emerald Isle Trilogy. The author is phenomenal in bringing to life the sights, sounds, and emotions through well researched descriptions and dialogue. Every word seemed to have a purpose in helping create a beautiful and poetic ending to an unforgettable trilogy. If you’ve never heard of the name Renee Vincent then you’re missing out on quality reading that’s worth every second of your undivided attention. It’s an escapists dream and I will most certainly be back for more.”
~ 5 Stars TOP PICK ~ Night Owl Reviews ~

“If I was told I only had one word to describe The Fall of Rain (the entire Emerald Island Trilogy, for that matter), it would have to be “FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!” This story deserves so much more than just a 5 star rating, in my opinion. Renee Vincent weaves a tale of everlasting love that transcends the boundaries of time, adding just the right twists and turns to keep you guessing. The Fall of Rain is the perfect ending, wrapping the entire trilogy up into one perfect package. I’m honestly sad that it’s over. I’m eagerly awaiting to see what literary gem Vincent has in store for us next.
5 Stars ~ Coffee Beans & Love Scenes  http://bit.ly/zDsWRY

“I know for myself I enjoyed the first two books very much. So much so, that I was excited for the third book to come out. Little did I know what book three really had in store for me. OMG doesn’t even cover it. This is my absolute most favorite book of this series. Where the first two take place deep in the past, book three finds us in the present time. How does that work, you may be asking . . . well, I would have never thought it possible until I read it for myself. Taking present time activities and adding in flashbacks from centuries past, this book offers the reader everything; drama, romance, comedy and even mystery. People and things aren’t always what they seem. In fact, you may walk away from this book never looking at that moment of déjà vu the same again. Maybe, just maybe when something feels right . . .we should remember, just who are we to question it? If you enjoy historical romances and love a story with men you would love to sink your teeth into, this is your series to get lost in. Not an ounce of disappointment to found in the pages of these books.”
Rose That Rules All – MAGNIFICENT! ~ Romancing The Book http://bit.ly/rxnb1z

“If you fell in love with Dægan in the book Ræliksen then you wont be disappointed when you read The Fall of Rain. You will fall in love with Leif too. I was crying happy tears when I finished reading this book. Author Renee Vincent made this Dægan Lover very happy. I’m very happy how she ended this wonderful trilogy.”

SNEAK PEEK:

“Will you be washing your hands of me now?”

His head fell and his shoulders dropped. How did he get so wrapped up in this woman, that any little thing she said sent his mind whirling and threw his self-control into a tizzy? He slowly turned around, forcing his line of sight to remain above her shoulders.

“I don’t think I could ever wash my hands of you, Rain.” He recalled the amazing day they had together, the conversation at the fort, the kiss at sunset, and the intimate shower they shared. “Not anymore.”

“Then why are you leaving?”

Leif crossed his arms, trying to remain poised. “Because I should. I came too close to having my way with you in the shower had it not been for the timely blast of cold water in the pipes.”

Lorraine melted him with her innocence. “You wanted to have your way with me in the shower?”

Leif couldn’t help but laugh. “Was it not obvious to you, then?” He glanced down at his tented towel “Or even now? Hell, if it were up to me at this very moment, I’d have already sprawled you out on the bed behind you.”

Warmth infused her cheeks and her eyes darkened. She chewed on her lip, pondering the scenario. The seconds lugged by, her reply hanging in the balance.

“Okay, that just came out.” He rubbed his hands down his face. “Obviously, that’s my libido talking and—”

“So, what’s stopping you, Leif?” Her hand came up to her chest and she untucked the towel at her breasts, letting it fall to the floor.

His mouth dropped open and his heartbeat kicked up a notch. Heat and blood and all things hormonal coursed through his veins. He couldn’t hold back even if his blasted conscience slipped in a last minute ethical reason for thinking twice. Her naked body, pleasantly dainty with soft curves in all the right places, spurred the animal inside him. She had given him permission to take her as he wanted, and that was all he needed to slam the door shut on morals and decency

SYNOPSIS:

Millie Fields’s life could be a Greek tragedy. As if frizzy hair and a dead-end job weren’t enough, the heartthrob of her dreams, Graham Lance, doesn’t even know she exists. The only man in her life these days is her best friend Braedon Hill, who seems to have an endless supply of tissues for her equally endless tears. Ironically, Millie is so blinded by her yearning for Graham that she can’t see Braedon’s heart yearns just as keenly for her.

Things become unbearable for Millie when a cruel twist of fate lands her – literally – at Graham’s feet. Utterly humiliated, she flees outside into the pouring rain, the sound of her co-workers’s contemptuous laughter echoing in her ears. As she sits sobbing on a bench, a stranger appears bearing a gift that will transform Millie’s life: A mysterious necklace that will metamorphose her into a ravishing beauty at dusk. Her newfound identity helps Millie finally land the delicious Graham Lance. But as she gets closer to Graham, her relationship with Braedon starts to disintegrate. Will Millie realize all that Braedon has to offer? Or will she choose to live her dream with Graham?

Paul Talbot, Viscount Leed, is set on avoiding the marriage trap.  Though his family has money troubles, he won’t marry an heiress and dance on her leading strings.  He discreetly writes speeches for Parliament, using his words to passionately express others’ opinions.

Lady Michelle Thomas is a spirited heiress, piqued with the rules of Society which dictate that a woman must be seen and not heard.  And if she has opinions on politics or finances?  Well, she had best keep them to herself.  Sparks fly when she meets Paul and she believes she’s found a man interested in more than her face, form and finances.

They wed, but when Paul refuses to take her very generous dowry she’ll do anything to see her money settled on him.  Even if it means going to his rival and putting more than his career in jeopardy.

REVIEWS:

5 stars!!
This is the first I have read from JoMarie DeGioia and won’t be the last. The book grabbed my attention from the first page. I loved how hot Paul and Michelle’s attraction was from the beginning till the end. These two completed each other in every way from their expressions to opinions to their fiery tempers. I loved that every time Paul let his pride get in the way Michelle fought him. Pride and Fire was a great book and a highly recommended favorite from this reader.

SNEAK PEEK:

Paul slowly turned toward the doorway and froze. He watched as, with a swish of her skirts, Michelle Thomas came into the room.

“Lord Kanewood,” she said, pleasure clear on her lovely face. “Rebecca! How have you been?”

Paul could only stare.  She was more beautiful than he remembered. Her fiery red hair was caught up behind her head, rich curls left loose to frame her face. Here eyes, golden brown and fringed by thick lashes, sparkled. And Lord she smelled of Lavender. His senses were so filled with her he barely heard Becca speak.

“Michelle,” Becca said. “How nice to see you again.” She cleared her throat and went on. “I believe you know Lord Leed.”

Michelle turned to face him. Her gorgeous eyes widened and he felt her regard like a caress. He quickly tamped down his response to her.

“Pleasure to see you again Lady Michelle,” he said coolly, bowing to her.

Michelle visibly stiffened and returned a look nearly as cool. She squared her shoulders and dropped a short curtsy, her full lips pressed together.

Becca smiled, drawing her husband’s attention. He leaned toward her. “Becca?”

Paul saw her give him a quick shake of her head to silence him. What was this?…..

SYNOPSIS

After fleeing her hometown years ago, Kara Sinclair has returned to breathe life back into the bakery her deceased grandmother left behind. She has a history in this town—one that involves her one true love. A boy she’d thought she’d give her life to before circumstance got in the way. She needs to focus on her task, but one look at Maxwell Stone and all the old feelings return. And it isn’t long before she can think of nothing else but reigniting the passion they once shared.

SNEAK PEEK:

“Max.” His name rolled around her tongue and she gripped the steering wheel tighter when her belly did a little flip-flop. She wondered if he’d stayed on his family’s orchard. Max’s dream had been to turn it into a profitable wine-making operation and it had been in the fledgling stages of transitioning into a vineyard when she left. Kara hadn’t kept track of Maxwell Grimes Stone II for two reasons. One being her focus on her own culinary career, and the other had been something she still refused to think about and a big reason why she had stayed away so long. She was sure Max had no idea what had really transpired to make her decide to leave. But coming home made her wonder.

SNEAK PEEK:

It had been months since he’d last seen the man. He’d come so close to asking Blue Eyes out on a date. The last time they’d met, Ian had planned on discovering his favorite food so he could book a table somewhere. Ian would have asked him out that night if Blue Eyes hadn’t received a call from his soon-to-be ex.

Ian had chased him out of the shop. The last thing Ian needed was to be an experiment for a straight guy. He’d never be able to handle that again, not after Kyle.
Ian tried to break eye contact but couldn’t. Blue Eyes let his briefcase fall to his side and straightened. Another gust of wind blew hard, sending his jacket flying around his legs. It was cold, wet and not a fit night for anyone.

If Ian had any sense, he would grab his things and go upstairs. He didn’t need a man in his life right now. He certainly didn’t need some straight guy playing around with him, only to throw him aside when the next cute chick came around.

Blue Eyes walked forward, coming to the edge of the curb but not crossing the street. Ian set his pen down and tapped his fingers on the countertop. Blue Eyes stepped onto the road, not even bothering to look for traffic, and crossed.

Ian’s heart pounded with every step closer Blue Eyes took. He’d forgotten how handsome Blue Eyes was, how intense he was one moment, only to be grinning and easy in the next. Ian couldn’t move, his gaze locked on the other man until he stood outside the door to the shop.

Neither of them said a word, simply stared at one another. Finally, Ian got to his feet and walked around the counter. He stopped at the end of the aisle, frozen. Beyond the kitchen to his right was the staircase leading up to his apartment. To the left was the front door and Blue Eyes in the cold night.

Ian took a deep breath and went left.
