Eve, Where Are You? by Nicole L. Davis Ph.D @DrNicoleDavis1 – Blitz by @RABTBookTours – Publicist @BookBuzznet

Confronting Toxic Practices Against the Advancement of Women

 

Christian Living, Women’s Issues

Date Published: November 24, 2020

Without question, having competent women in leadership can certainly
enhance the vitality of any organization. Sadly, too often women are not
given equal opportunities and are left doubting their sense of self and
their abilities.

In Eve, Where Are You?, Dr. Nicole Davis uniquely evaluates bias practices
within one specific organization: the Christian church. You’ll learn
why many women are discouraged, emotionally absent, leaving churches, or
considering giving up religious pursuits altogether. Within these pages, Dr.
Davis thoughtfully contemplates the scriptural significance of God’s
creation of Eve; compares women’s leadership advances in the
marketplace and church; and shares real-life stories and perceptions about
women in leadership offered by present-day church leaders.

As a conflict coach and resolutionist, Dr. Davis boldly addresses possible
causal effects of toxic practices against women and then offers strategic
solutions and guidance to both women and church organizations to facilitate
reconciliation, creating opportunity for the church to regain influence and
effectiveness in our culture.

Crisp, aggressive, and truthful, this study presents a call to action for
women who want more, men who want more for women, and church organizations
seeking to embrace internal transformation against gender bias in the
Christian church. Also available in Spanish.

About the Author

Dr. Nicole Davis is a wife, mother, pastor, Christian life coach, social
science researcher, and conflict resolution practioner, with over 20 years
of professional experience. Her areas of research interest include gender
inequality, organizational leadership, women empowerment, and family
dynamics.

Dr. Davis believes there is a huge distinction between a woman’s
calling, which is determined by God, and a church’s doctrine about the
utilization of women, which is a cultural decision predominantly determined
by men.

Dr. Davis advocates for churches of all denominations to begin having open
dialogue about systemic oppression and alienation against women.  Those
who show no regard for women’s callings or competency levels. Women
need to be developed and commissioned to serve at the highest levels.

Dr. Davis examines the deep-rooted conflict concerning what God intended
when He created Eve in the Garden of Eden. She asks poignant questions
inviting women to explore how they see themselves based on God’s
original plan for them.

On Sale for $0.99 for a Limited Time

 

Sometimes love is worth the wait.

Sara Carlisle and Charlie Rhodes are complete opposites. Oil and water.
Chalk and cheese.

Before Sara even meets Charlie, she hates him. He’s insulted her best
friend -a woman Sara considers family- and that is unforgivable. In person
he proves to be just as obnoxious and insufferable as she’d anticipated.
And, as far as she’s concerned, the fact that he’s tall and muscular with an
accent to die for is not enough to redeem him. Charlie Rhodes is an arrogant
A–hole (with a capital A!) and that’s all there is to it!

For his part, Charlie thinks Sara is a conceited pain in the arse. A prissy
princess to the nth degree. It becomes his prerogative to get under her skin
for the sheer pleasure of riling her up. He feels genuine enjoyment in the
face of her frustration, and he makes no secret of it. Besides, she gives as
good as she gets!

Fundamentally opposed in every way, it’s obvious to those around them that
they’re not going to get along.

But unfortunately, thanks to their respective families, they are stuck in
each other’s lives for the foreseeable future. Being civil is as good as it
is going to get…or is it?

When their relationship turns from reluctant acquaintances to red hot
lovers, they find it’s good.

Really good.

What could possibly go wrong?

 

In a slow-burn romance that follows hot on the heels of Handle With Care*,
Sara and Charlie discover that you really can’t rush romance.

 

*Both Handle With Care and You Can’t Hurry Love can be read as standalone
novels in the expanding Jukebox Collection series.

 

Review

This book gave me a perma-smile. Sara and Charlie’s journey isn’t quick and easy. It’s a journey for sure and there are many ups and downs but both of their personalities are witty and they play off oneanother oh so well.

For me the story was well written and heartwarming, I laughed out loud as well as had frustrated and emotional moments.

Enemies to lovers, forced proximity.

The War Girls by Julie Rowe @JulieRoweAuthor – Blitz by @RABTBookTours – Publicist @BookBuzznet

Historical Fiction, WW1

Date Published: June 28, 2022

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

During the Great War, in a German-occupied Red Cross hospital in Brussels,
Belgium, there are three British nurses who will risk everything to save the
lives of those in their care. These are the stories of The War Girls.

Saving the Rifleman – British Red Cross nurse Maria Hunt lives in daily
fear that the German soldiers who regularly inspect her hospital will
uncover her secret: she helps wounded British soldiers escape German
hands.

Enticing the Spymaster – Judith Goddard is hiding in plain sight. A dual
citizen with family ties to Belgian royalty and the British military, she
works as a Red Cross nurse in a German hospital, learning what she can, ever
fearful her true allegiance will be discovered.

Aiding the Enemy – Rose Culver is in grave danger. For months the Red Cross
hospital head nurse has been aiding Allied soldiers caught behind enemy
lines, helping them flee into neutral Netherlands. It’s only a matter of
time until she’s caught.

The War Girls is composed of three previously published novellas. This is
the first time they have been published in one volume.

Excerpt

Chapter One

Brussels, Belgium

November, 1914

“Maria.”

Alarm rippled across Maria’s nerves, jerking her attention from the
supply record book she was writing in.

Her teacher, mentor, and matron of the hospital on Rue de la Culture stood
at the window, staring out at the street, her back straight and stiff.

“Rose?” Maria took a step toward her, but Rose’s voice
stopped her before she could take another.

“Please take an inventory of the bandages in the closet on the second
floor.” Her words were spoken with a deliberateness that should have
been reassuring. It wasn’t. The other woman held herself too still,
too rigid. “We’re about to have another friendly
visit.”

“Germans?” Maria whispered, dread tightening its coils until
she could barely breathe. “Again?”

Regular soldiers didn’t make her too uncomfortable; they appreciated
the nurses who looked after their wounded countrymen, and they knew they
could end up at this hospital and in her care. But the officers were another
thing altogether. They looked at Maria and Rose as if the two of them were
convicted criminals of the worst sort.

As if they were dirty.

Rose nodded.

“Lord preserve us.” The words slipped out before Maria could
stop them. “When will this madness stop?”

Rose turned then, a rueful smile on her face. “I wish I knew. Go now
and stay out of sight if you can.”

“But—”

“I’ll be fine. Dr. Geoff is still here. He’s as irritated
with all these inspections as we are. They’re a constant interruption,
and we have little enough time for our work as it is.”

Herman Geoff was a German doctor, but he treated Rose and even Maria with
the utmost respect. His uncle was a high-ranking officer. Very high. As long
as Dr. Geoff supported them, they would most likely remain safe.

If they did nothing to irritate or anger the local German troops. Something
Maria feared she’d already done.

She rushed to the back stairs and climbed them quickly. Rose would be safe.
The second daughter of minor gentry, she had demonstrated time and again her
diplomatic skills were more than up to the task of dealing with arrogant,
suspicious German officers.

Maria had none of those skills or family background.

The second floor was filled with bedrooms, now used as wards for their
patients. There was also a room where the nurses slept—Rose, herself,
two Belgian nurses and one German nurse who worked with them. A closet near
the back stairs had been converted into a storage area for bandages and
other medical supplies.

Perfect for a woman to hide in while waiting for their German visitors to
leave.

She opened the door, prepared to enter…

But the closet was already occupied—by a soldier complete with pack,
sidearm and rifle. The weapon wasn’t what snared Maria’s gaze
and held it.

His eyes were green. A brilliant emerald green.

Her breathing stalled as she stood in the doorway and stared into those
wide, pale eyes and at the blood spattered across his face and
uniform.

His British uniform. In a Belgian hospital full of enemy German
soldiers.

Good God.

Voices floated up the back stairs a few feet away and she opened her mouth
to caution him.

Before she could utter a warning, before she could blink, his hands reached
out, grabbed her, and yanked her into the closet, pulling the door closed
behind her.

Fear and shock crushed her throat as she found herself pressed against the
soldier’s body, one of his hands over her mouth, the other a steel
band behind her back.

She couldn’t move and the closet was so dark it might as well have
been a tomb. Blind and restrained, the unfamiliar scents filling her
nostrils took over her senses.

Mud, blood, and man.

***

Lieutenant John Bennet held the woman in his arms tightly enough to keep
her from crying out, but not enough to harm her.

He’d hoped to find someone to help him, preferably a nurse, but this
wasn’t how he’d anticipated meeting such a woman—staring
into her frightened face then pulling her into a dark closet. He
couldn’t even tell her she was in no danger from him. Any noise would
likely be overheard by the men now standing on the other side of the
door.

He held himself still despite the pain from his wound and the unfamiliar
weight of the woman in his arms. How long had it been since he’d held
anything so soft? Weeks? Months?

He sucked in a breath and the scent of evening flowers filled his head,
driving out all others. His cock stirred in response to the feel of her
curves along his flank. Her chest rose and fell erratically under his arm as
she tried to breathe through what must be a terrifying situation.

Yet there were no tears, no sobs, or cries.

He tore his focus from the delights of her body to consider her movements
for a moment. She’d stopped struggling for the most part and now stood
relatively docile in his arms.

Maybe she realized how dangerous his predicament was. If she was a nurse,
she might feel some sympathy toward him, some care.

Energy surfaced from some unknown well inside him, heating his muscles. He
couldn’t give up hope, not now. He had to find a way out of Belgium, a
way to report what he’d seen. There were more lives at risk than his,
thousands more. Including the nurse in his arms.

A man was giving orders in German in the hallway, from the sound of it,
only a few paces from the closet door. Orders to search the hospital for the
British soldier. Orders to find and detain for questioning the second
British nurse. The woman John no doubt held in his arms.

The woman now in as much danger as he.

Poor girl. It was one thing to tend wounded men in no shape to offer
offensive behavior, but quite another to be taken captive in a dark closet.
He was lucky she hadn’t screamed herself hoarse or fainted.

Somehow, he needed to communicate his lack of intent to harm her.
He’d been told this hospital was a place of safety for British
soldiers caught behind German lines. The last farmer who’d sheltered
him just outside of Brussels told him the matron of this hospital could help
him, had already helped many others like him. She might even be able to
supply fake identity papers and an escape route out of the country.

Warm, soft, and sweet-smelling, the woman in his arms could be the key to
his survival. And what he knew was the key to Britain’s defense.

His spine solidified, transforming into steel.

She didn’t know it, but he was prepared to kill to protect her.

“Great action, well-told, and authentic with all the nuances and
spirit of small town Texas. Don’t miss it.” -Lone Star Literary Life
Reviews

In this enigmatic follow up to his critically acclaimed debut novel The
Cuts that Cure, Arthur Herbert returns to the Texas-Mexico border with this
chilling mystery set amidst a small town’s bloody loss of
innocence.

Amoret, Texas, 1982. Life along the border is harsh, but in a world where
cultures work together to carve a living from the desert landscape, Blaine
Beckett lives a life of isolation. A transplanted Boston intellectual, for
twenty years locals have viewed him as a snob, a misanthrope, an outsider.
He seems content to stand apart until one night when he vanishes into thin
air amid signs of foul play.

Noah Grady, the town doctor, is a charming and popular good ol’ boy.
He’s also a keeper of secrets, both the town’s and his own. He
watches from afar as the mystery of Blaine’s disappearance unravels
and rumors fly. Were the incipient cartels responsible? Was it a local with
a grudge? Or did Blaine himself orchestrate his own disappearance? Then the
unthinkable happens, and Noah begins to realize he’s considered a
suspect.

Paced like a lit fuse and full of dizzying plot twists, The Bones of Amoret
is a riveting whodunit that will keep you guessing all the way to its
shocking conclusion.

 

Review

This is a mystery that doesn’t just have a great mystery to solve right along with the characters but actually has some action and thrills along the way. The way the author bends the story and makes your mind flit from one thing to the next guessing is really just masterful.
The flow of the writing is very well done and really lends to the high paced storyline.

About the Author

offshore oil rigs, as a bartender, a landscaper at a trailer park, and as a
social worker before going to medical school. For the last eighteen years,

Glitched – @RABTBookTours

Science Fiction

Date Published: April 14, 2022

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Kashmira lived an ordinary life until an army of invaders sacked her city
and left her for dead. When she awakens, she discovers she is a glitch in a
virtual reality video game – destined only for deletion by the bots
that hunt her.
 

Dugan is a bitterly disgruntled engineer who played a pivotal role in the
creation of virtual reality games and the NPCs who inhabit them. Fired from
the company he helped found, he seeks only revenge.

In a chance encounter, Dugan sees in Kashmira a tool to sabotage the games
and avenge himself, and through him, Kashmira finds the help she desperately
needs. As they traverse the worlds of virtual reality and their friendship
deepens, it will take everything they have not only for her to win her
freedom and survive, but also to answer the fundamental question of what
“life” is.

 

Review

Vivid and written in a very descriptive way that really allows the reader to imagine the world in their head, which I loved. I felt submerged right along with Kashmira and Dugan.
I liked the themes woven through this book. There was mystery and action, there was fantasy and sci-fi elements, relationships and friendship themes and so much more.
I felt that the plot was a good one, I found myself trying to keep up, as there was a lot of moving parts, but it was highly original.
