New Release: Foundation of Love is available in eBook format! #Giveaway!

I’m so excited about the release of Foundation of Love: The Gypsy Blessing 2 that I’ve decided to give away three (3) copies!

FoL cover 376x600_300dpi copy

Building contractor William Darcy doesn’t trust women. Elizabeth Bennett, an architectural intern working on his latest project, wants nothing to do with such a rude man. Because of a magical blessing inherited from an ancestor of a similar name, Elizabeth begins to doubt her sanity when her cell phone receives pictures predicting future events. After Elizabeth uses the photos to save William’s sister, the wall between them begins to crumble. When William witnesses Elizabeth viewing a series of prophetic photos, he becomes involved, as well. Will their shared experiences become the foundation of love?

Foundation of Love is a sweet, Jane Austen-inspired romance with a bit of magic / paranormal. A contemporary sequel to The Gypsy Blessing, which takes place in Regency England, it can also stand alone. Contains no graphic love scenes.

Trail of Crosses by Jo Grafford (review)

An exquisite experience!

I absolutely loved Breaking Ties, and was anticipating the next in the Lost Colony Series so much that I was almost afraid to read Trail of Crosses. But of course, I couldn’t pass it up, and I’m glad I didn’t. Jo Grafford has out done herself!

Beginning with the first word, Ms. Grafford’s deep, rich descriptions pulled me into the story, this time following Jane Mannering’s experiences in the New World. I was right there with Jane every step of the way, leaving me “inside” the story long after I’d put it down.

You don’t need to read Breaking Ties to understand Trail of Crosses, but I highly recommend that you do read both, for your own enjoyment. (My review of Breaking Ties is here.)

I certainly hope we won’t be waiting long for the third book of the series!

Book description:

Jane Mannering can shoot a rifle and handle a knife as well as any Englishman. However, she is no match for the red-painted warriors who ambush her section of a Colonial caravan the moment she and her comrades reach the shores of Virginia.

Jane plots their escape during a forced march inland, leaving a trail of maltese crosses carved on the trees – their pre-agreed upon signal of distress. All the while, she fumes over what interest their captors could possibly have in a twenty-three-year-old spinster and a rugged band of brick masons, sawyers, and farmers.

When the ruthless Chief Wanchese intercepts them at the crossroads of the Great Trading Path, Jane is shaken to discover their greatest enemy plans to keep her for himself. It’s a pity he’s the only man on two continents who’s ever stirred her heart. Alas, she has an entire colony to save, and capturing his attentions is not part of their escape plan.

The Trouble With Horses: A Pride & Prejudice Variation Novella by Elizabeth Ann West #AustenInAugustLGR

Read as part of the Austen In August reading challenge, The Trouble With Horses was a fun, quick, light, and delightful read!

Elizabeth Bennet’s and Darcy’s characters are changed a bit, but in what P&P variation are they not? I think this was a refreshing “what if” story, and a great length when one would like to take an afternoon to oneself, or a trip to the beach or pool.
