Description: Sonny the Scoundrel lives with Grandpap, the wizard in their rustic village of Sow's Teat.  Sonny is dashing and handsome, but his reputation is widely known.  When a former flame announces her marriage to a suitor from a distant city, he knows it will be a grand affair attended by visitors from far beyond their village—including young maidens who are unaware of his dubious reputation. 

Since the visitors will include his favorite type of maidens—those he can romance and never see again, he nicks a love elixir from Grandpap in advance of a big wedding,.  Sonny is confident he can charm any of the visiting maidens without need of the love elixir, but why work harder than necessary?  

When he adds too much love elixir to a girl's cup, Sonny discovers making her fall out of love with him is much harder than he imagined.  Unfortunately, there is no love elixir antidote and Sonny must use his wits to wriggle out of her clinging claws.

Cover Love: Castle of Sighs by Jennifer Murgia #YAlit #Fantasy



Castle of Sighs
By: Jennifer Murgia
Young Adult Fiction - Historical Fantasy
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Release Date: September 15, 2015

Some secrets cannot be kept—in life or in death. 

Months have passed since Rune has heard a single whisper from her long-dead mother, the great witch of Bavaria. But the absence of one evil has only made room for another. 

After rightfully inheriting her ancestral home, Pyrmont Castle, Rune settles into a quiet life taking care of two orphans left in the wake of the terrible witch hunt that claimed dozens of lives in the nearby village. As the days grow colder, the castle’s secrets beckon and Rune finds herself roaming where no one has set foot in a long time. In the bowels of the fortress is a locked room full of memories that hang like cobwebs—shelves stacked with jars, strange specimens, putrid liquids, and scrolls of spells. Rune is undeniably drawn to what she finds there, and she begins to dabble in the possibilities of magic, hoping to find a cure for the strangeness overwhelming the castle. 

As secrets unspool, the delicate thread of Rune’s world is threatened when she realizes the key may lie in the dark forest she once called home and the boy she thought she knew.

Got a favorite VDay candy? #dreamingofchocolate Accidental Valentine by @RoanePublishing #Giveaway

Accidental Valentine
Author:  Various Authors
Publisher:  Roane Publishing
Release Date:  February 13, 2015
Keywords:  Contemporary, Romance, Valentine's Day, Short Stories, Anthology, Sweet


Guiding Hearts by Claire Gillian
Description: Is a lonely woman's GPS sentient or is her subconscious taking her by the hand to help heal a scarred heart?

When Jemma Ernst's GPS malfunctions and sends her to the home of handsome and engaging Gabriel Nash, she writes it off as a fluke. But she can't seem to reprogram him out of her thoughts nor her GPS.

Better Latte Than Never by Katrina Sizemore
Description: Single and cold on Valentine’s Day, Hailey Merritt is not looking forward to working all day at the coffee shop while everyone around her is cheery with romance and she’s stuck trying to figure out her next step in life.

But, when a special bouquet arrives for her from a secret admirer, she decides to reserve judgment on this holiday and find whomever sent the flowers.

Maybe Cupid has a plan to make this her favorite Valentine’s Day ever.

Dream Architect by S.L. Hughson
Description: Taylor and Sons Custom Design keeps ASHLIN TAYLOR at arm’s length from her dream job. If only she were a son, she could follow her architectural dream. In the Taylor creed, girls get married and boys have careers. DYLAN CUTRIGHT focuses on finishing college and landing an architectural engineering job in a large firm. Minus emotional ties.

After their accidental encounter, their attraction is amplified during their work interaction. Unlike her family, Dylan encourages Ashlin to pursue her dream by enrolling in college. He even argues her case with Uncle Mike. All of this support confuses Ashlin because when she moves closer to him, he rebuffs her for reasons she can only speculate about.

Valentine’s Day might be the perfect opportunity for Ashlin to make him notice her. They are working together - alone - on the most romantic day of the year. Dylan builds her dream of career, but will he ever lower his walls and become more than just the man IN her dreams?

One Hot Angel by Jaylee Austin
Description: Oblivious to Tiffany Jenkins in three short weeks her life will end—unless she makes the perfect choice. Will she chose revenge and expose her ex-husband? Or chose love and surrender her heart to the only man who can save her?

Rock My Bones by Wendy Sparrow
Description: Jared has been eyeing the sexy mural painter from inside the museum’s paleontology lab, but she’s way out of his league. He can’t let her paint that obviously misplaced fern, though…even if it means initiating contact.

You could call her a paleontology groupie, but Shay Meyers is interested in a more modern specimen. An adult male Homo Sapien to be exact—one who needs to be dragged out of his lab for a practical course in mating rituals. If she’s lucky, this will be the Valentine’s Day she rocks his bones.




Purchase Links:

So I asked the five authors of Accidental Valentine for their
Favorite Five VDay candy,
and here's what they had to say...

Claire Gillian:

Whitman's Sampler (the little box with 4 chocolates in them)
Russell Stover Pecan Delight
Necco Conversation Hearts with the writing on them.
De Met's Turtles
Fifth Avenue candy bar (hard to find!)
If Cadbury ever makes their mini-eggs in Valentine's Day colors (have they?), you can make that number ONE and the Fifth Avenue will have to drop off the list.


Katrina Sizemore:

My favorite candies are Ferrero's trio (Rocher, Rondoir and Raffaello), just about any Godiva chocolate (especially the ones with nuts or fruity fillings), and Almond Joys.

Jaylee Austin:

Valentine’s candy my favorite is anything with caramel and nuts. White chocolate dipped strawberries are the best. White chocolate kisses with almonds are good.


S.L. Hughson:

My favorite candy is dark chocolate. The best Valentine’s Day includes a selection of dark chocolate truffles from our local chocolatier: Moonstruck Chocolates. Chocolate covered almonds are the next best thing (as long as it’s dark chocolate).

Wendy Sparrow:

Dark Chocolate Lindt Balls
Milky Way Dark
Salted Caramels
Chocolate Orange
Chocolate caramel truffles


And now I'm wanting chocolate. Thanks, ladies!

Cover Love: Enticed by J.A. Belfield ETHAN!!!!!!! #HollowayPack #PNR


CHECK OUT THE ETHAN PURDY!
*FANING FACE*



Enticed: A Holloway Pack Mini
Author: J.A. Belfield
Release Date: April 16th, 2015
Happy Birthday to Ethan.
Or is it?
Gifts aside, Ethan’s morning hasn’t been anything to write home about. Sure, life is good, the pack is staying out of trouble, he finally has a mate who boils his blood … in a good way.
Except Shelley hasn’t called. Hasn’t come by. Didn’t even bother to join her son and his girlfriend for Ethan’s annual I’m-a-year-older breakfast.
What Ethan doesn’t know is that Shelley has plans. Plans that have been in progress for weeks. Ones that Ethan will never see coming, and that she’s banked on him not knowing a thing about.
She can only hope her secrecy doesn’t force his inner wolf to the surface—at least, not too early.
