Title: Genealogy
Author: Mae Wood
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Release Date: October 25, 2018


Inspired by real, hundred-year-old love letters.My great-grandmother’s name is bold across the cream envelope, now golden at
the seams with age. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen graceful,
purposeful handwriting with a fountain pen and not the hasty scrawl of

Alice Hirshhorn, Astoria Hotel, Seattle Washington.

“Letters to Great-grandma Alice,” I say with wonder, tracing my fingers over the
faded postmark and foreign stamps.

December 1915. Philippine Islands.

I turn the thick envelope in my palm, slide out the tightly folded pages, and
unfold the thin paper, taking care not to tear the letters that were important
enough to keep for a century.

My dearest Alice

“Great-grandpa was in the Philippines?” I ask.

“Oh no. Not your great-grandfather,” answers Grammie, her eyes twinkling with
her mother’s secrets. “Elliott.”


At thirty-three and with her future unclear, Ali Waller finds her way home
again. A box of long-forgotten love letters written to her great-grandmother
holds the unlikely key to Ali finding her new path.

As she tracks down the letter writer and his descendants, Ali learns the magic
of love, hope, and resilience.

Told by three characters, and across century and an ocean, Genealogy is
an enchanting story about love and loss, taking chances, and embracing the
surprises that life brings.

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Title: Cards of Love: Queen of Wands, Author: Suzanne Halliday, Genre: Romance (novella) ~ Available Now!

Title: Cards of Love: Queen of Wands
Author: Suzanne Halliday
Genre: Romance (novella)
Release Date: October 26, 2018
Life is unpredictable and what the cards read for each of us changes like the weather forecast.
When David Allyn’s daughter asked him to stop at a specialty store for her, he thought it would be a simple errand. Fate had other plans.
Clueless about mysticism, magic, and fantasy; he wasn’t quite sure what to make of a store that carried tarot cards, cupid sprinkles, and mystical looking decor. The Queen of Wands store was only half as fascinating as it’s owner, Micki Davies.
Gold Star widow Micki Davies is the breath of fresh air David didn’t realize he needed. The quirky, free-spirited shop owner fascinates him like no one ever has.
Humor, instant attraction, and the kind of desire that leaves them both weak in the knees join together with destiny to weave a charming tale of love at every age.

Trusting his instinct, he picked up one of the Egyptian looking bottles and peered at the hand-letteredtag dangling from a ribbon tied around the neck.
“Horny Toad,” he murmured softly.
He felt the soft giggle before he heard it.
A mellifluous voice hypnotized his senses. “Horny Toad. Interesting choice. Complicated formula. Has to be brewed on the night of the new moon.”
David moved in slow motion, turning his head toward the voice. The hand that held the bottle froze in midair.
“I’d have figured you for this.” An elegant hand with dark red nails reached into the tower and extracted a squat bottle with a yellow top. “Cupid Crystals. Sprinkle in some coffee and see what happens!”
She was standing so close he could hear her breathing. Their eyes met, and the planet stopped spinning.
The hippie woman from earlier had bright azure blue eyes beneath real eyebrows—not that stuff women drew on.  She was smiling. Laugh lines suggested a woman who appreciated life.
Feeling tongue-tied, he was momentarily overcome by the unfamiliar reaction.
“It’s sugar-free.” She laughed.
He found his voice because the sound of hers was enough to make him agree to walk like an ape-man if it meant she’d keep talking.
“Vegan?” he asked with an arched brow.
She cracked up laughing. Hefelt like Judd Nelson at the end of TheBreakfast Clubwith a triumphant fist in the air.
“May I offer you a hand?” she asked. Her voice held a gentle, soothing softness. “I can take those things up to the register if you’d like.”
He blinked. That was it.
“It’s okay,” she assured him with a chuckle. “This is my store.”
“You’re the Queen of Wands?” he asked.
Her whole face brightened. The eyes regarding himhad sweeping lashes. Azure sparkles shot from her expression.


“Yes! That’s me.” She curtseyed like a lady-in-waiting, and he was charmed beyond belief. “I’m Michele Davies, Head Wand Mistress,” she said with her hand out in welcome. “Micki to my friends.”

Welcome to the fairy tale …


Olivia Kennedy was living the life she had always dreamed of. She had a lovely home in California that she shared with her adoring and successful husband and their two-year-old son. She couldn’t be happier, until the night fate intervened and crushed her fairy tale. A widow for over three years now, she is finding it hard to stay in the town where she has no husband, no job, no family, and no future. When an opportunity opens up, she realizes she must let go of fairy tales and face her reality. 
Welcome to Clover, Alabama …
Starting over in the town she swore she would never return to, Olivia and her son Mason become Clover’s latest residents. As the new librarian, she hopes she can keep busy to fill the void of losing her husband, while raising her son closer to her supportive family. She is touched by how the town she once detested, now welcomes her into their loving arms and accepts her and Mason as their own. Things are looking up for them, especially when a hero returns home.
Welcome to falling in love …
Olivia can’t deny her attraction to Clover’s hometown hero, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Sullivan. The Air Force pilot is not only handsome, but his sense of excitement and adventure sparks something in her that she had never felt before. She is also touched by the quick bond that has formed between Tom and Mason. Tom has made it clear to her that she is in his target range and nothing would make him happier than having both of them in his life. Olivia, however, is unsure about taking risks. It is her duty to protect her son, as well as guard her own heart. Does she have the courage to love again and allow the hometown hero to show her that her fairy tale is far from over?

Marie Savage is a self-published author who has a love for family, friendships, patriotic spirit, and hometown pride.
Born and raised in the Florida Panhandle, she has always had a love for reading and writing, with the romance genre being her obvious favorite. Her desire to expand her horizons, led her to join the United States Air Force and proudly serve her country for six years.
While stationed in Atwater California, she met her true love and together they have shared life’s beautiful joys and tragic losses. After spending over half her life in the Central Valley of California, she has moved back home to the Wiregrass area, where her passion for writing first began.

Sebastian Kelly believes he isn’t worthy of redemption, of a chance to right his wrongs. But an unexpected trip home, the place he dreads most, calls in question everything he’s come to believe. And who knows, he may find exactly what he’s been waiting for. 
One broken promise. Two pink lines.
Autumn Norris knew in an instant her life would never be the same. Years have flown by in a flurry of sparkles and dress up, and Autumn has refused to let the anchor of regret pull her under. 
Until she lays eyes on Sebastian, and the wave of why, where, and how could you flood her every thought.
Old hurt and new betrayal twist first love into a reluctant partnership, and theirs may be a bond even pigtails and butterfly kisses can’t mend. But the past five years have felt like a lifetime, and Seb is willing to wait as long as it takes.
Because the truth is, he’s always been waiting for Autumn.

📝My Review📝:

Brantley's Way (The Running M Ranch #1)Brantley’s Way by K.L. Donn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!

This was definitely a book I had a hard time putting down! Too much going on and I was so engrossed in needing my happy ending. Brantley’s Way is not your typical cowboy romance. That just means the main focus in this book was not ranch life. While Brantley himself is a possessive and protective alpha, Adilynn is strong and protective as well. Unfortunately, while Ady takes care of others, there is no one taking care of her. Ady needs caring just as much as the younger brother she adores and protects as well as the horses she cares for. For all her weaknesses, I found Ady to be a remarkably strong, young woman. I admired her spirit and loyal, loving, caring personality. I hated the horrific situations she was forced to endure and I hated her mother a hundred times more. My only disappointment in this book was that I didn’t get to see karma bite Ady’s nasty mother in the a**!

There is a good deal of characters introduced in this book and I can only hope the author will write about them. Another reason I loved this book was because of my love for horses and all things cowboys. Yeah, I admit it, this is my favorite romance trope. One more plus for me is that I found a new author to stalk. While I have seen KL Donn’s name all around the book-loving community, Brantley’s Way was my first read by her. She has over twenty available books to chose from. Actually, I already know what I’ll be reading by KL Donn next. You’ll just have to wait for my next review to find out. 😉

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Have you ever heard the sound of your life ending?

A cell door slamming shut is the best way to describe it.

I killed a man. A bad man.

He touched her when she was mine.

He broke her when she was mine.

I’m getting out on a technicality.

Now, I’ll get to make her mine.

She’ll cry my name each night instead of his.

She’ll feel my pleasure instead of his pain.

Farren Hallewell is my addiction and I’m obsessed.
