12 Days of Christmas Book Blitz Event - Day 12 - All is Merri and Bright

Merri Wilcox has finally achieved her greatest dream and opened her own hair salon. Life is bliss until Brighton Stansbury walks through her door. Growing up, Brighton was behind every bad thing that happened to Merri. She hasn't seen him since high school graduation and could have happily continued like that forever. 

When a winter storm traps Merri and Brighton together, will the pair finally learn to get along, or will the Christmas holiday become their new war zone?                                                                                                                                                                                               

Tifani Clark grew up on a potato farm in southeastern Idaho with two brothers and two sisters. Because of her location, she had a lot of space to imagine and daydream and often pretended to be characters in books--like Scarlett O'Hara. She is married to the love of her life and is the mother of four fabulous children. When not writing, she enjoys playing the violin and piano and traveling to new places.

Q and A with the Author:
1.       What is your favorite part about writing?
a.       I love it when I’m writing and hidden plot twists or personality quirks pop out without me knowing about it beforehand. Sometimes discoveries are made that excite me.
2.       Is there a message in your novel that you want your reader to grasp?
a.       Hmm…this story is meant to be lighthearted and fun. Maybe the message could be not to judge others without knowing their full story.

12 Days of Christmas Book Blitz Event - Day 11 - Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall

Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall by Luccia Gray

Luccia Gray was born in London, and now lives in the south of Spain with her husband. She has three children and three grandchildren. When she's not reading or writing, she teaches English at an Adult Education Centre and at University.

Following Edward Rochester’s death, Jane Eyre, who has been blackmailed into marrying a man she despises, will have to cope with the return of the man she loved and lost. The secrets she has tried so hard to conceal must be disclosed, giving rise to unexpected events and more shocking revelations.
Romance, mystery, and excitement will unfold exploring the evolution of the original characters, and bringing to life new and intriguing ones, spinning a unique and absorbing narrative, which will move the action from the Yorkshire countryside, to Victorian London, and across the Atlantic Ocean to Colonial Jamaica.  

Here are a few great snippets!

I was convinced I would never see him again. I had tried unsuccessfully to expel him from my thoughts, but he was always there, haunting my dreams and slipping into my mind during the day.


The morning after Twelfth Night, I had planned to leave London and return to Eyre Hall. I was having breakfast by the hearth at the inn, when someone crept up behind me and sat down in the chair to my right. I looked down at his unsteady hands, fearing he wished me no good.
“Michael, I done it. I killed him.”

12 Days of Christmas Book Blitz Event - Day 10 - An Unexpected Proposal

While working at a wood camp in the Logan canyon during the winter of 1880, Caroline Simpson is forced to thwart the aggressive advances of Mr. Butch Larson, and in the process discovers that her long-time friend James has genuine affection for her. But as stubborn as Caroline is, she minimizes the emotions James has awakened in her, and it takes almost losing him to admit her true feelings. 

AN UNEXPECTED PROPOSAL was introduced in the first volume of the bestselling and award-winning Timeless Romance Anthology series, WINTER COLLECTION:
**Amazon #1 Bestselling *New Release* in Clean Romance 
**Amazon Top 10 in Regency Romance  
**Amazon Top 5 in Victorian Romance                                                                                                                                                                          


Annette Lyon is the Whitney Award-winner author of Band of Sisters and a three-time recipient of Utah’s Best of State Medal for fiction, twice for novels and a third time for her novellas. She has received many publication awards from the League of Utah Writers, including the Silver Quill for her first book in the Newport Ladies Book Club series, Paige. She’s published more than a dozen novels, even more novellas, several nonfiction books, and over 120 magazine articles, and she has a cum laude BA in English from BYU. When she’s not writing, knitting, or eating chocolate, she can be found mothering and avoiding the spots on the kitchen floor.

Q and A with the Author:

What is your favorite part of writing?
For me, the best parts of writing aren’t predictable. The experience of writing each work is different from writing every other, so the challenges and joys will be different too. Often, the biggest thrill is the moment a great idea or character appears for the first time on the stage of my mind. Sometimes writing the initial draft transports me into what feels like another dimension (but then, other times, writing every word is torture). Other days, revision is a pure delight; I get to take the lump of clay that is the messy first draft and form it into something wonderful. Yet sometimes revision can feel like drudgery too—particularly during the fifth or sixth or seventh revision . . .). Before I begin a new project, I never know what my favorite part will be.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

I don’t write books with a message in mind, yet messages often show up anyway. Yet a dear friend recently pointed out that a common thread in my romance novellas is finding love where you don’t expect it—often right in front of you.

Maura finally found the truth she was always seeking…or has she?

After being left in the dark for all of her life, Maura’s father, Maxwell, has finally returned to reveal sinister family secrets Maura could never have dreamed possible—including his revelation that she is one of The Born. But his daughter soon discovers both he and her mother are keeping pieces of her reality hidden, still. As Maura struggles to unravel the mysteries surrounding her new existence and discover every piece of the cryptic puzzle, life appears intent on casting stumbling blocks across her path with every step forward.

Tragedy seems to stalk Maura, and those around her, as she stumbles along, altering the young changeling’s family, just when they have all come back together. The changes left in its wake could be for the better, or may threaten their existence, entirely.

With the arrival of Christmas comes the opportunity for Maura to draw close to everyone she loves—and finally reunite with Ron, the man she loves. But permanence has always eluded her, and in her current state of flux this pattern endures, as fate seems intent on snapping the threads that bind her to those she holds most dear. Maxwell’s good intentions pave a road for Maura, littered with misery, while her mother, Caelyn’s, desire to shield her family from pain may tear her away from them, altogether. The perfect happiness in the young vampire’s grasp is so easily swept away and dragged under, out of reach. Can Maura erupt from the darkness and confusion to break the surface and find the life she’s always dreamed of?

In the midst of chaos, assistance materializes in the form of another of her kind—ephemerally beautiful, yet explosively volatile, this new vampire may prove capable of unlocking the puzzle-box Maxwell seems intent on securing from her sight. Maura will discover the darkest parts of herself in her quest to understand the being she is destined to become. Her newfound friend has some shady intentions of his own—such as thwarting the love that has grown between Maura and Ron. Following in the wake of the impulsive vampire’s misguided instruction may further pull a naive Maura down into the depths of ultimate despair, heartbreak…and even destruction.

Time For a snippet!

He was beautiful.  His eyes were a soft grey, and the way they sparkled in the moonlight was heartbreaking.  The moonlight filtered down through his hair, and I could tell that it was a pale brown that was nearly blonde where the light shone strongest.  But woven through were strands of silver, throughout.  Not grey—silver—very nearly like Christmas tinsel.  It whispered back from his pale face, gelled into spiky shards.  He was grinning down at me, his fangs distended behind perfectly symmetrical lips.  Maybe he did intend to make a meal of me. I realized I was staring open-mouthed.  He chuckled.  It had a dark ring to it.
“Scared, Little Changeling?” he murmured.
“No,” I lied in a whisper.
He leaned in, bringing those deadly fangs closer to my throat.  An image of Ron burned behind my eyes coupled with a stabbing pain.  My arms came up to cover my head, and I gritted my teeth, wanting to scream instead.  I didn’t want to see my own death coming, so I clamped my eyes shut.
When I opened them again, he had pulled back a considerable distance. He stared down at me with a puzzled look on his face.
“You don’t really think I’m going to…”  His eyes narrowed, and then assessed me in silence.  I was still incapable of speaking.
