Tagline: The Werewolf within Patrick is never far from the surface, but with Angelica, it’s another beast he must tame.

Book Description:

The animal within him was never far from the surface, but with her, the wolf was untamable.

Patrick Blakesley, born to a bloodline of werewolves, falls in love with the mysteriously shy, yet ravishingly beautiful daughter of his new employer – the Lord of Ashford Manor.

When the town of Ashford is besieged by a sudden spate of murders, suspicions fall on Patrick, for he has been discovered for the beast that he is.

Although forced to go into hiding, it does not stop Patrick from pursuing his love for Angelica. Shacked up in an old boat shed, they discover pleasures such as only forbidden fruits can yield.

As Patrick discovers all that Angelica has to offer, the brutal murders continue.
Are they strong enough together to discover the true beast and tame it, before all of humanity perishes before its wrath?

A steamy paranormal romance that merges romance, thriller, mystery, and the paranormal.





Excerpt:

Patrick stood at
the edge of the precipice of white cliffs, and gazed out over the ocean,
staring at the distant continent across the water; the ship he had stepped off
earlier was already out of sight.
Too long had he
been away from home.
He now turned
his back on those distant shores, burying deep within the memories of the last
three years. He strode out powerfully, his long legs steeled from the years in
the war. He had miles to go to Ashford and would not reach it for several days.
There would be
inns along the road, and he hoped to find accommodations there for the nights.
After a good
day’s march, Patrick readjusted his weighty satchel and stepped off the rutted
road to allow a wagon to pass. The two heavy draught horses snorted uneasily as
they went by him.
He looked up
into the sky and realised night would be upon him soon.
“Good sir,” he
called out to the driver, “would there be an inn close by?”
“Not for another
twenty miles, ‘m ‘fraid.”
The horse nearest
to him exhaled nervously, and the driver shifted his attention away from
Patrick.
Stepping back,
Patrick cast another heavenward. Wispy clouds sailed across an orange tinged
sky as the sun began to set in the west. Soon the moon would rise.
Leaving the driver
to calm his horses, Patrick turned away from the road and headed towards the
nearby forest. A vein in his neck throbbed at the thought of spending the night
within the confines of the dark trees before him.
He walked deep
into the woods, well out of sight of the road. At a pebbly creek, he hung his
satchel upon a high branch of a tree before slaking his thirst with the cool
water.
As the light
faded, Patrick gathered firewood and made a fire pit with rocks from the
riverbed. He put dry moss and kindling in the centre, and then stacked some
logs around it, but he did not light it.
Instead, he
removed his clothing, folding it neatly and arranging it next to the fire pit.
His
clothes were
worn and faded, but clean. Although muscular, his tall body was made of clean
lines, long legs and a broad chest. Years of war had made him lean and tough.
Naked, he cast
an approving glance over his sparse camp and then walked away from it. Over the
years that he had been away, he had learned to control himself. It had not
always been easy, and until even a year ago, there were occasions where he
could not trust himself. Today, however, he was in control.
Away from his
camp, with the moon rising over the forest, his naked body distorted, changing
shape with agonising contortions.
Breathing
heavily, the werewolf ’s fur bristled in the cool evening air, and he raised
his snout to taste the scents on the wind.

Tonight, he
would hunt.

Stefan's Promise by Sam Rennick


Join us for this tour from Jan 27 to Feb 7, 2020!


Book Details:



Book Title:  Stefan's Promise by Sam Rennick

Category:  Adult Fiction (18 +),  546 pages

Genre:  Literary Fiction

Publisher:  Hugo House Publishers

Release date:   September 3, 2019

Tour dates: Jan 27 to Feb 7, 2020

Content Rating: PG: Some adult themes but no bad language.


“We were at war in Vietnam and my fiancĂ© was drafted the day after he
proposed to me. I hadn’t thought of that September day for so long, and
then I began "Stefan’s Promise." Soon I was recalling that day and
others, events and circumstances shared by those of us who lived through
the “tumultuous year of 1968” and the following 35 years. In the
Preface, Sam Rennick states his intention to deliver a completely
absorbing tale. He does!”
—D.W.G.Artist



The author brings great sensitivity to one powerful scene
after another. There is Mike Huxtable, victim of an unprovoked blow,
aimlessly wandering the aisles of a drug store, day after day. There is
Stefan Kopinski, half-pondering his friend’s illness, half-observing the
Midwestern city in which he finds himself. These scenes but two among
many in this compelling novel.”

—Silvia Lorente-Murphy, PhD Professor Emerita Purdue University


Book Description:


The Vietnam War Changed America. Two Best Friends Weren't Spared. Only One Was Drafted.



It’s 1968. America is rocked by assassinations, war protests and
political upheaval. Alan Young, 21, is brooding over having been dumped
by his girlfriend. This won’t last long. His draft notice is in the
mail. Stefan Kopinski isn’t about to let the war get in his way. He
spends his days at the mercy of his reckless ambition. When fate steps
in, will he finally understand what has been right in front of him for
30 years? "Stefan’s Promise" is the story of Alan and Stefan.
Circumstances part them and sharply diverging temperaments further erode
their bond. Yet, Alan and Stefan are wrong in supposing their
friendship has ended. It’s just getting started.

Meet the Author:   


Sam Rennick began writing Stefan’s Promise forty years ago, but
it wasn’t until fairly recently, when he retired from his law practice
that he was able to take his manuscript from its drawer and finish it.
He admits he wishes he could say he planned this all along, since the
two books comprising the novel, though written many years apart, combine
perfectly into a compelling narrative.



While many authors have influenced him, he singles out Somerset Maugham
as his muse, observing that Maugham always starts with a good story, but
often finds a way to insert that “something extra” separating merely a
nice tale from literature. Sam’s interest in books is only exceeded by
his love for baseball, which began when he was nine years old.

Synopsis
Horrific plane crash, murderous deception, and a deadly chase in the alligator-infested Florida Everglades!

On the afternoon of May 11, 1996, ValuJet 592 plunged into the Florida Everglades. There were no survivors. But something came through the crash unscathed: a small box with huge implications for humankind. And the one man unlucky enough to discover its whereabouts disappeared without a trace.

Now, 20 years later, the mystery of Flight 592 hits close to home for Del Honeycutt and best-selling mystery author Sabrina Spencer. A shocking revelation launches them into the middle of a dark conspiracy, and locating the box becomes a matter of life or death. They are not alone in the hunt for the mysterious package and very quickly learn that others will stop at nothing to find it, eliminating anyone who stands in their way.

With killers hot on their trail, Del and Sabrina must navigate dangers lurking both above and below the swamp waters of the Everglades in order to find the box...and to survive.



I'm the author of novels in several genres, including, mystery, thriller, and post-apocalyptic science fiction. Under the name A.R. Cunningham, I've also written the Arthur MacArthur series of mysteries for children.

I was born in England, but have spent most of my life living in the U.S.—including 25 years on Cape Cod before moving to Florida. A former interpreter for the deaf and long-time independent bookseller, I've been a full-time freelance writer and copy editor for many years. A 4th-degree Master Black belt in Tang Soo Do, I finally retired from active training when my body said, "Enough already! Why are you doing this to yourself?" I'm married, with two grown children and two awesome grandsons. My wife and I spend as much time traveling as we can, and are especially fond of cruising the Caribbean.

​I have been gratified by the response to my books. When I published Eden Rising back in the spring of 2013, I had no idea what to expect. When I sold my first few copies, I was excited beyond belief that someone was willing to take a chance on it. Numerous books and thousands of copies later, I am still humbled by the emails I get from readers telling me that my books kept them up late into the night.

In October of 2014, Wisdom Spring made me an official Amazon Bestselling author, a thrill I never thought would happen. But it still comes down to being able to bring a few hours of escape to a reader. That's what it's all about for me.

I hope you will try my books. Please feel free to email me with your comments.

Beastly Curse by Selene Drake


Beastly Curse 
by Selene Drake 
Genre: Paranormal Romance 


A passionate fairy tale about forbidden love and a vengeful man’s secret longing to end a curse that only true love can cure. 

Love was never meant for a man like me until she stumbles into my forest. Isabella Rose, with her jet black hair, mahogany skin, and intoxicating scent, called to me from miles away. 

Blade is a beast of a man, a towering presence, a chiseled body, sharp fangs, and he runs with a pack of wolves. Wolves, my father, killed. And I’m willing to trade my life for his. 

My Bella…My Enemy…Our Love. 

Is it possible that she’s the one to break the curse? That she can feel anything, other than fear, for a man like me? 

But the moment I sense enemies lurking to reclaim my Bella, our differences don’t matter because there’s no way I’ll let them harm her. And I’m prepared to fight, hoping the solution isn’t to let her return to the real world leaving me to remain a beast forever. 





I write romantic stories laced with love, legacy, and fate. My novels feature culturally diverse characters and I hope to renew or deepen your love for magic, shifters, and romantic imagination.

LaSasha Flame 

I'm a young author from Chicago, I'm hoping to bring some new heat and sizzle to the romance genre.

My favorite genres are paranormal and dark romance. I love reading a good book but I'm so busy in life that I only get to enjoy audio books. Its the only way I can get lost in a good book nowadays. And you know what? I half prefer an audio book over print any day! I have a long standing membership at Audible.com and I plan to publish audio books for busy bookworms like myself! Yay!

My love of writing started when a friend of mine encouraged me to write a short story and just see what happens. Turns out I had a knack for writing because everyone loved my short stories. From then on I have worked on improving my craft. Growing from flash fictions to novellas. I am really looking forward to sharing all the twisty goodness I have planned!

Thank you & Much love and Sizzle!

Pebbles Lacasse 

Pebbles Lacasse writes tales of eroticism that are steamy, making most people blush. Each book she writes has a love story with a fairytale ending that we all wish to have in our lives. Through all the drama of the stories, much like real love in every day life, love will arise. She likes to believe that we should all have that fairytale ending we so wish to have but are seldom lucky enough to be graced with.

In her real life, people tell her their most intimate secrets. She’d never consider blabbing them to anyone else because those experiences can be amplified (or not) into one of her sexy, erotic books. If she keeps secrets, they'll will tell her more naughty tales.

Pebbles lives in southern Ontario where she was born and raised. Her husband endures her long hours in front of the computer but is rewarded when he listens in on the inflated fantasies and sexual practices of some people they know. Of course, she’ll never tell who the fantasy belongs to or if it’s something they dreamed about or actually did. 




Jennifer Johnson 

Jennifer Johnson is the author of the popular blogs, Slut-Problems and Slut-Solutions. She is a self-proclaimed slut and has written three novels; Hollow Girl, Swing Low, and Naughty Alice. She likes to maintain a cloak of anonymity, which is why she never shows her face. Jennifer is an expert in sex, love, and relationships as well as a novelist, podcaster, and model.

Jenni is known for her free erotic stories on Tumblr, which range from romantic sex all the way to extreme topics like rape fantasy. She is well loved on many additional sites as an erotic blogger. She posts erotic submissions from her followers in between stories, and also answers questions about love, sex and other random topics. She has sold over 3000 copies of her first novel, Hollow Girl (available ONLY at The Book Patch because the content violates the terms of most major retailers). Jennifer is also a podcaster who discusses a full range of topics in the area of sexual education and entertainment. She is also a porn model and produces amateur pornography on Pornhub (look her up on Pornhub as porn model Jennifer Johnson). 




Dawn Sumner 

Dawn Sumner is a married mother of one with a passion for fantasy, erotica, and romance novels. Most, if not all, of her novels will be a variation of the three. Writing offers her an escape from reality! She welcomes you to join her on a journey of lust, love, and new worlds with beloved characters in all her works of art!





Cate McKoy
