Date Published: August, 2019

Publisher: Pen & Key Publishing


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png  

 

A tiny town. A broken tavern. And one woman searching for a place to belong.

Logan Cole is used to getting her way and what she wants more than anything is for her father to get out of jail and restore her old life in New York. All she has to do is wait for his scandals to fade and the online rancor against her family to subside. Low on cash and out of options, she takes a bus north looking for anonymity and stops in the smallest town she can find: Ramsbolt, Maine.

When she stumbles into Helen’s Tavern, she finds a place in need of a make-over and a grandmotherly woman who could use some help. Soon, she finds herself growing fond of the bar, Helen, and the town. She’s even found a friend in Grey, the local plumber. The tiny town puts her at a crossroads: keep hiding her identity to preserve her new reputation or let down her guard and reveal her true self to the people she’s grown to love. But the choice is ripped from her hands when tragedy strikes the bar and saving it requires every tool at her disposal.

Can Logan find a true home among the people of Ramsbolt Maine?

The Collected Stories of Ramsbolt is a series by Jennifer M. Lane, award-winning author Of Metal and Earth and Stick Figures from Ramsbolt. Fresh and heart-warming, the series tells the stories of a small town looking for belonging.




Review

Small town with big characters. I liked Logan from the start, but the others we meet along the way are just as wonderful to read about. 
This had a good beginning and ending, but a little bit of slow parts in the middle. I think in the end it all evens out. 
Definitely grab this one. I really think you'll love it, too! 

About the Author

Lane holds a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Barton College and a master's in liberal arts with a focus on museum studies from the University of Delaware, where she wrote her thesis on the material culture of roadside memorials.

Below stairs is where the romance begins..

As the most distinguished watchmaker in England, Christian Bainbridge believes in accurate timepieces, not love. He secretly offered his heart years ago, and he’s never gotten it back. When Raine Mowbray stumbles into his life again, Christian realizes the woman he’s worshiped from afar is still the woman he desires above all others.

Raine Mowbray needs solitude and employment, not love. A housemaid forced to flee a loathsome earl’s grasp, the last thing she’s seeking is a man’s amorous attention. When she finds herself unexpectantly paired with a gorgeous watchmaker in need of an assistant, she’s unnerved by his wit, kindness—and clandestine devotion to her.

If you like spirited heroines who fight falling in love and charmingly arrogant heroes who think they know best, then this is the book for you! Snuggle up with Tempting the Scoundrel, a steamy second chance, love-at-first-sight Regency Romance!

 

This is a Downton Abbey-ish novella at 98 pages and 25K words!!

Book Tour & Book Review: Scorpius Rex by @wburkeauthor #blogtour #bookreview #kindleunlimited #giveaway #horror #actionadventure #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours

 



Horror/ Action Adventure

Date Published: July 20th

Publisher:  Severed Press


photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Petroleum engineers drilling in the African desert uncover a pocket of mysterious, life-preserving gas, and the hellish creatures hibernating within—a colony of ten-foot prehistoric scorpions. After 400 million years, Scorpius Rex has risen to reclaim its throne as Earth’s apex predator.

When their USAID humanitarian mission goes awry, Dave Brank’s security team becomes trapped inside the drilling complex’s electrified perimeter. Now they’re locked in a life or death battle against hordes of flesh-eating scorpions prowling the labyrinth of machinery. Brank, a decorated soldier unjustly drummed out of the army, is determined to save his men and the nearby village. Outside the fence lurks another kind of monster—renegade commandos with a barbaric plan to lure the scorpions out . . . by feeding them women and children. Only Brank’s team can stop the slaughter and, just maybe, save the world. Unfortunately, these guys aren’t elite Navy SEALS or Delta Force Operators; they’re mercenaries—battle-scarred mavericks who kill to earn a living, not to save the world. But with humanity’s survival at stake and Brank calling the shots, even these hired guns can become heroes.

 








Review

This was an amazing read from the start! 

If you want to stretch you imagination a little, this is the one for you. It's dark and creepy in the best way. 

I liked the way the author created the creatures that are highlighted in the book. 

Military, Horror, Scorpions... what more do you need? 

Definitely kept you engrossed and guessing right up to the end and beyond.

Meet Philihp. He’s in middle school, and he’s in love with Auburn Brown. He doesn’t know how to talk to anyone about it, not even his cousin Graham, with whom he shares movie quotes and other obsessions. But no matter. Philip comes to know, as certainly as anyone can know anything, that destiny, fate, cosmic powers, the universe--they’ll bring him and Auburn together in the end. All he has to do is pay attention to life’s patterns, to live his life in manageable, predictable, proper increments, and the world will reward him.

Meet Auburn. She’s a talented soccer player, a loving sister and daughter. She has very little idea Philihp exists. She’s busy adjusting to a new school, worrying about her brother, and trying to figure out who she’s supposed to be when everything she ever knew feels uncertain

This is a love story. A true love story, in the ways that truth and love matter most. There are loving families here. Loving friends. Philihp and Auburn live in the same great big scary beautiful world you do. A world that may or may not be predictable or fair but is full of love if you look and listen for it. When all is said and done, this just might be a story about romantic love, too. You’ll have to read to find out.

Young, Broke and Educated investigates the decline of purchasing power among young people, especially over the last generation. It explores in basic, easy to understand terms, how economic systems have evolved to hinder the financial success of millennials and the incentives that government, big business and banks have to prevent progressive change.

Alexander Baima, a master in the field of eCommerce and early adopter of blockchain technology, walks you through, step-by-step, what the issues are and what needs to change to ensure that millennials and future generations have access to the same type of success that previous generations took for granted.

College—it’s the first time most young adults move away from home. Suddenly, there is freedom like they’ve never encountered before—no parents, no school bells, no rules. There is no rulebook for starting college, and, unfortunately for most students, it can be a difficult and even shocking transition.

Renée Bailey knows firsthand how difficult the transition from high school and college can be. Going into her first year, she, like many others, thought she was prepared for the challenges and the freedom that awaited her. Looking back, there are so many things she wishes she had known. Renée wants students to know that they are not alone. 18 Things College Students Should Know provides rising college freshman with the tools, support, and the confidence they need to navigate a successful first year academically, socially, and mentally.

Renée Bailey grew up as the only daughter of a single mother. Between the ages of about 5 and 10 years old, she watched as her mother went to a two year nursing college while working full time. She watched as her Mom studied, and listened while her mom played audiotapes of her classes. She listened so well that this young woman would actually quote the professors back to her mother. As she approached her own college experience, she realized how ill prepared she really was. Sure enough, in the second semester of undergraduate degree, life took a sharp turn for this young woman and what she didn’t know about university life started working against her. As a result of what Renée went through with her own college experience, she learned about the stress of college, firsthand. Learning more about these stressors and how to overcome them kept her from being one of approximately thirty percent of college freshmen who drop out and enabled her to finish two undergraduate degrees and a master’s degree in Performance Psychology. She has taught at the college level and now writes and speaks to high school and college students to help them stress less and succeed more in college.
