Is it January 31 yet? I’m not wishing the summer away, let alone hoping for the cold. I simply can’t wait for book two in the Chesapeake Valor series. Catching a glimpse of Dani Pettrey’s new cover makes me all the more eager to read Still Life. I’m already crushing on Parker. Doesn’t he look handsome?
It’s no secret around here that I love Ronie Kendig’s books. I’ve been hooked to her stories, BFFs with her heroines, and in love with her heroes ever since I read her debut novel, Dead Reckoning. Waiting for Ronie’s latest novels can only be described as sweet torture. This time, my anticipation for her newest series, The Tox Files, scaled to a whole new level. Why? Conspiracy of Silence transports readers to the land of my heart — Israel!
While I can’t say much more at this time, I will add that Ronie’s rapid-fire action, edge-of-the-seat suspense, and captivating characters made this book next to impossible to set down.
Though readers will have to wait until December to delve into this adventure (excruciating, I know!), I do bring good news. First, Warrior’s Seal, the novella that introduces The Tox Files, releases in October, making the wait a little less arduous. Second, the author herself has an exciting giveaway underway on her site. Hop on over for a chance to win the Quiet Professionals trilogy — Raptor 6, Hawk, and Falcon.

Psst, for a fun fact about about the cover model, make sure you read Ronie’s post. Let me say, it makes me love Tox, the cover, and Ronie all the more.
Four years after a tragic mission decimated his career and his team, former Special Forces operator Cole “Tox” Russell is persona non grata to the United States. And that’s fine—he just wants to be left alone. But when a dormant, centuries-old disease is unleashed at an archaeological dig where three Bronze-era artifacts are found, Tox is lured back into action. Partnered with an archaeologist and an FBI agent who’s an expert in deception, Tox and his team are pitted against a secret society, a plague, and a revered codex—which may hold the key to stopping the deadly outbreak.
Yesterday, the talented and acclaimed author Dani Pettrey revealed the cover to Cold Shot, the first book in her upcoming series, Chesapeake Valor. I loved her Alaskan Courage series, so to say I’m excited about this new adventure would be an understatement. I can’t tell you what the story is about yet, but I can say that the guy on the cover — or should I say, the character he represents — is called Griffin.
In 2013, I stumbled across Carla Laureano’s debut novel, Five Days in Skye, and immediately fell in love with enchanting story, captivating characters, and breathtaking setting. (Make sure to check out my review). Ever since, I’ve hoped, prayed, and maybe even begged for a continuation to the MacDonald family saga. That moment has finally arrived!
The second book in the series, London Tides, hits the store shelves on June 1, 2015. In the meantime, I’m really excited to share the new cover with you.
Grace Brennan is the rare female in an exclusive group of photojournalists capturing conflicts around the world. But the death of her mentor in the field reveals the danger of her career.
She returns to London to rekindle the spark with the only man she ever loved–Scottish businessman, Ian MacDonald. Years ago, he sacrificed his dreams of Olympic gold for Grace, only for her to vanish. Are life’s tides finally bringing them back together?
Few things top the thrill of glimpsing a book cover for the first time. It offers the first taste of the tale that awaits within its pages. Granted, actually delving into said story proves even more exciting, but since we have to wait until October 21 to dive head first into Keely Brooke Keith’s The Land Uncharted, I’m happy to share the new cover art for her novel!
Lydia Colburn is a young physician dedicated to serving her village in the Land. Day and night, she rushes by horseback to treat the ill and injured, establishing a heroic reputation as the village’s new doctor.
Naval Aviator Connor Bradshaw is flying over the South Atlantic Ocean on a mission to secure any remaining sources of fresh water in a 2025 world torn apart by war. A malfunction activates his aircraft’s ejection system, parachuting his unconscious body to the shore of a hidden land.
Lydia risks her safety to help the injured outsider despite the shock of his mysterious arrival and the disastrous implications his presence could have for her peaceful society, which has gone undetected for seven generations.
Connor searches for a way to return to his squadron, but his fascination with life in the Land makes him protective of Lydia and her peaceful homeland. And while Lydia’s attraction to Connor stirs desires she never anticipated, it also pushes an unwanted admirer to stage a dangerous attempt to win her affection.
As Connor tries to keep the Land off the radar, he learns the biggest threat to Lydia lurks in her village. But when Lydia’s greatest passion and darkest fear collide, will she look to the past or the future to find the strength to survive?
