On SALE now! A Tinfoil Hat of My Own #Fantasy #Paranormal #Bikers #Werewolves #99cents

•**•.On Sale Now!•**•. 


A Tinfoil Hat of My Own
This is a short, fun, quirky read. It is perfect for a few minutes of escapism into a fantastical world filled with laughs and eye rolls. I highly recommend this short story.”—5 ★ #review on Amazon.

Bikers are sort of pissy. So are werewolves.

Dealing with the devastating end to her long-term relationship with Cobweb, Eunice decides to pick up the broken pieces of her heart and glue them back together with the healing song of nature and a nourishing brandy to replenish the soul.

As evening falls on her drunken pity party in the park, it's time to head home and deal with the consequences of the not-so-anonymous tip to the cops and what she may or may not have done to Cobweb's bike--and clubhouse.

All thoughts of that end when something bigger than a pissed off biker gets ahold of her--nothing says burning calories like booking it through woods with a mermaid-killing werewolf at your heels.

Will Cobweb miss her? Will Eunice survive?

Friendship, bikers, werewolves, and repurposed tinfoil. Some stories just have it all.

Author Interviews with Summer's Sweet Embrace authors! @RoanePublishing #Romance #Anthology #Giveaway

Author Interview Time!!

I asked the authors of Summer's Sweet Embrace about their favorite summertime memory with their spouse / significant other. Here's what they had to say...

~~~oOo~~~

Michelle Ziegler:

I’m assuming building the deck, although a great memory, is not what you were thinking?  Okay, fine. Summer memory.  I have to say it was our first annual 4th of July party.  It rained so hard that not much went to plan.  This was BK – before kids. My husband and his friends were kids enough for us though.  The burgers were chard thanks to the monsoon hitting and the air conditioner wasn’t working right. When it came time for fireworks, my husband was not to be deterred. He got a blow torch and braved the storm. Yes, firework will light up, go off, and crackle in rain. It might not be super romantic, except that my husband knows I love fireworks and I am very patriotic. I still laugh remembering how drenched my husband was and the large goofy grin as each fountain erupted. 

Laurie Treacy:

Sitting on the beach roasting s’mores over a fire, talking and singing.

Christa MacDonald:

My family rents a beach house every summer.  Our big crowd means huge family meals and playing games late into the night.  It's loud, close, and hardly private but thoroughly wonderful.  Every trip though, my husband makes a point of stealing me away for at least one solo walk on the beach.  We stare up at the stars while sitting on the sand and just enjoying the moment alone.  Okay, there's some kissing too.

Kim Strattford:

Eating raw oysters off our dock and then raspberries off our bushes on the Fourth of July.

Jaylee Austin:

On a trip to the British Isles, we visited English Pubs, visited Wales, explored castles and kissed the blarney stone in Ireland. Those were an enjoyable three weeks of food, shopping, exploration, and love.

Niki Mitchell:

I spent one Fourth of July watching fireworks from a boat on the Colorado River with my now husband’s arms wrapped around me.

Melissa J. Crispin:

 Many years ago, my husband had a 1970 Toyota Landcruiser that he had fixed up. On a perfect summer day, he would take the top off of it and we would drive around. I have fond memories of those days, with the warm sun on my skin and the wind in my hair. There was a freedom about it that’s difficult to put into words. I was sad when he had to get rid of it. Though to be fair, probably not nearly as sad as he was! But, he recently picked up another one to restore, so we’ll get to do it all over again eventually. I’m looking forward to it.

Sheryl Winters:


I started dating my husband in the middle of the summer. I remember I took a day off work and we drove up to Hatcher's Pass. It's a mountainous area with a river that runs through it. We kicked back and ate beef jerky and drank Diet Pepsi. We investigated a beaver's dam and I surprised him by climbing out to get a better look.

Too bad for Hailey, impatience got the best of her. Finding Mr. Right in time for a destination wedding couldn’t happen fast enough. Instead of listening to reason, or rather her friends, she’s stuck in paradise alone, again.

He’s been caught up in his own success for too long and is looking to finally settle down. Timing is everything and his cousins wedding is the perfect start of his new life. His luck is changing with the captivating mystery woman on the beach.  Now all he has to do is find her, before he agrees to his family’s match making plot.

Ocean Dust – Laurie Treacy

Carly Dawson, 18, is facing her last summer before leaving for college, all alone. Still nursing a broken heart over the loss of her boyfriend, Chase Montgomery, she wants the next two months to be different. A shocking unexpected visitor one night just may offer Carly the excitement she seeks. Her only decision is whether or not to choose what this visitor offers her.

The Beach Rose – Christa MacDonald

Annie Thomas can’t believe her good luck when she inherits the family’s beach house in Oceanside Maine.  It’s one of the few places she was truly happy so she sells everything she owns, quits her job, and moves in hoping that her new business, The Beach Rose, will bring in enough money in its first season to let her live up there year round.  But on her first day things aren’t as easy or as simple as she’d hoped.  To cap it off she discovers that her best new client is actually the boy she had a huge teenage crush on.  So much for rekindling a summer romance.

For Craig, Annie was everything he wanted when he was a geeky seventeen year-old.  Now that he’s pushing forty and the owner of half the real estate in town, he wants another shot at convincing her that he’s everything she needs.  He didn’t count on her owning the business he just signed a contract with though.  Craig has to find a way to help Annie’s struggling business without her knowing it since anything else would push her further away and that’s the last thing he wants.

Skye’s life is kept busy running the Epic Surf Shop and training for annual surfing contest. The handsome, buff Idahoan interests her, but she doesn’t want another disastrous summer fling.
