Cover Reveal: Starstruck by Carla Laureano

About the Story:

Novelist Christine Lind has achieved her lifelong dream—a string of best-selling books and a cable-TV adaptation about to go into production. But on her way to London FanFest for the cast reveal, disaster strikes: their leading man is injured in a motorcycle accident… and his replacement is the one person she hoped she’d never seen again.

Nick Cleary has clawed his way to recognition as a Hollywood actor, but it’s long past time he get the chance to show he’s more than a pretty face and a chiseled set of abs. His big break comes in the form of a juicy lead role in a new steampunk fantasy series. There’s just one catch—casting has to be approved by the author… a woman he once devastated through his own youthful stupidity.

Christine is the last person to be starstruck by the handsome heartthrob, but as the clock ticks down to the cast announcement and Nick races to show that he’s really changed, she begins to wonder if there’s more to her ex than his Hollywood persona. Except now the consequences of being wrong no longer apply only to her career… but also to her carefully guarded heart.

Don’t you just love the cover?! Saying I can’t wait to read this novella would be an understatement.

Cover Reveal + Giveaway: Jane by the Book by Pepper Basham

About the Story:

Four years ago, Jane Warwick escaped the shame and heartbreak of being jilted at the altar by becoming a housekeeper at the secluded Inn at Simeon Ridge. Predictable and quiet, the inn helps Jane find a place to heal and celebrates her strengths, where she is promoted to head housekeeper. But an unexpected visit to Bath, England, upsets Jane’s plans and sends her out of her comfort zone, directly into the harrowing path of historical detective author, Titus Stewart. The only plans Titus sticks to are family holidays and the ones that send him careening into his story worlds, but when an uptight and nervous innkeeper stumbles into his life – and his latest novel – nonfiction begins to take on a much more interesting gleam.

As the unlikely pair delve into the mystery behind a one-hundred-and-fifty-year-old letter, will they both uncover a romance that stands the test of time?

Cover Reveal: Still Life by Dani Pettrey

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?


If you haven’t read the first installment, Cold Shot, you have time to catch up. To know what I thought, see my review.

Cover Reveal + Giveaway: Conspiracy of Silence by Ronie Kendig

conspiracy-of-silence-tosca-lee-endorsementIt’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.

Cover Reveal: Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey

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.
