Just Ella by Annette K. Larsen

Book Summary: A Proper Romance Ariella was only looking for a distraction, something to break up the monotony of palace life. What she found was a young man willing to overlook her title and show her a new and vibrant way of life. But when her growing feelings for Gavin spiral out of control and clash with the expectations of her station, she will discover that the consequences of her curiosity are far more severe than she’d imagined. I watched in helpless horror as two guards hauled Gavin to his feet and dragged him from the room. My voice was frozen, unable to protest as another guard took hold of my arm, leading me upstairs. From the confines of my room, I stared into the darkness beyond my window, hoping to catch one more glimpse of Gavin. He was gone, and I wondered if he would have been better off if he had never met me. I write clean romance. Why? Because that’s what I love to read, but over the years I’ve discovered it’s quite a c…

Author Interview with Catherine Hemmerling of Romancing his English Rosr

1. What made you want to be a writer?

I have always loved to read. I think voracious readers tend to end up writers. Certainly reader expands one’s imagination. I began making up stories when I was quite young. I used to write parts for my siblings and cousins and we would put on plays for the family. I guess that evolved as I got older.

2. Who is your favorite author?

Number one favorite is Jane Austen. Although there are many that vie with her in the moment, I always go back to her books when there is nothing else new to read.

3. What is the name of the last book you read?

I suppose mine does not count, so I will with JD Robbs, Immortal in Death. mI’m working my way through the series

4. Tell us about yourself in 3 words?

I’d say tall, funny, loyal. Creative, determined, and courteous are the three my future step-daughter came up with. How nice is that?

5. What is your favorite activity?

Wow, tough one. I love to read, but I also like spending time with my family and making things.…

Book Spotlight:The Silvet Strand by L.J. Clarkson

Tour Schedule


The Silver Strand :

Ever since twelve year old Isabelle Tresdon’s silver strand of hair sprouted, it’s been nothing but trouble: bleeding pink dust and sparking like a firecracker. Refusing to be known as the girl with the freaky, grandma hair, she wishes it never grew and the hair withers and tarnishes. The only problem is, the strand is Isabelle's source of magic, and she can transform particles of energy into matter. It's also her ticket into Mastermind Academy, a secret school inside the earth’s core. Five days remain before the strand drains her magic and life, forcing Isabelle to enter into a deal with two trickster Masterminds to save it. But what she doesn't count on is there is more at stake than just her life. The Silver Strand, a MG Fantasy Adventure for 9-12 year olds, is book 1 in the Mastermind Academy Series.
