It’s been over a year since Jimena kidnapped Nic and locked him in
his basement. Turns out demons love being adored, even by serial killers.
This long-term toxic relationship that’s become a marriage hinges on
Jimena’s ability to show he is reformed.

What better way to do this than by adopting a feral cat… or seven.
Jimena’s new obsession shows him the dark side of humanity and how
cruel they can be to unwanted pets.

His murderous intent is now misguided and used to avenge the animals that
can’t protect themselves.

It’s an improvement, sort of. Except the demon cop that’s
helping keep Jimena out of jail is bringing up old feelings and Jimena is
considering upgrading in demons. Might upgrade from avenging pets to
avenging people too, because these mass shootings involving children are
getting a bit annoying.

Jimena and Nic continue their toxic love story that may not last much
longer, especially if Jimena locks a demon cop in his basement.

“The mere brute pleasure of reading-the sort of pleasure a cow must
have in grazing.”
 

-Lord Chesterfield: British Statesman,
1694-1773

 

Cows seems simple, and most of the time we don’t even pay attention. But
below the surface, they are amazingly rich in emotion and personality. In
our fast-paced, technological, and socially complex world, we often forget
the ease and ofttimes simplicity of the wisdom that we truly know in our
heart. In this book, wholesomeness, wisdom, and humor come together to both
entertain and enlighten you. Simple gems of wisdom from the barnyard.

 

About the Author

Author Darren J. Squire believes in achieving the utmost potential in this
life that the Lord has given us. He realizes that discovering much of the
world around us all, understanding its fundamental principles, then properly
applying them helps lead to a successful life. Having done this himself, he
hopes to encourage others to do the same.

Distant Secrets by Richard L. Cole #promo #autobiography #nonfiction #distantsecrets #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours

Autobiography

Date Published: February 14, 2023

Publisher: MindStir Media

 

Do you ever wonder who you really are? Richard Cole was front page news a
few weeks after his birth in 1944, but this was something he never knew. He
did know he was adopted and he did wonder who he really was. But, as a young
adult, he wondered much more about finding success, a simple goal that
seemed so elusive.

He was 19 when he married his high school sweetheart and took off, full
speed, into the adult world. Harsh reality and his failure to focus on
long-term goals made his desire to succeed just an unlikely dream.

He finally took control of his life and made the climb up to a nice
middle-class life. Along with his wife, two really cute kids, and a new
suburban home, they were the picture of a perfect little family. Then the
dream evaporated and Richard’s life began a downward spiral that ended with
him alone and subsisting on food stamps and unemployment checks. But Richard
had met someone on his way down, someone who stuck with him during the bad
times. She gave him a reason to keep trying, and hope that things would get
better.

This lighthearted autobiography takes you along on Richard’s quest to find
success in life and shares his discovery of the distant secrets that
surrounded who he really was.

 

“Find yourself getting stuck in a zigzag of life’s twists and turns,
unsure of where you’ll land? Richard Cole certainly has and Distant Secrets
maps out his journey through hardships and gains and everything in between.
He opens up to share his intimate world of experiences and the “moments
of stunning mental clarity” that have guided him along the
way.”

-J.J. Hebert, USA Today best-selling author

About the Author

Richard Cole held a wide variety of short-term jobs until his late
thirties. He finally settling down with Motorola as a computer systems
analyst and later a data center manager. During that period, he turned his
wild bird feeding hobby into a little business and went on to opened his
first Bird Watcher Supply Company store in 1988.

Richard’s wife, Nancy, operated the retail store and Richard
continued his corporate job, helped at the store part-time and worked to
perfect his special blends of wild bird feeds. He left the corporate world
in 1990 to open their second retail store.

The Bird Watcher stores grew to five locations and Cole’s Wild Bird
Products was formed to produce and distribute their bird feeds which now
attracts a national following. Richard and Nancy sold their retail stores
when Richard turned seventy. Cole’s Wild Bird Products is still owned
and operated by the Cole family.

When one finds a bleeding, half-naked, indescribably handsome man in
one’s bed, does one…

 

• Scream

• Faint

• Hit him with a large book

• Push him back out the window he climbed in

• Bandage his wounds like a sensible bluestocking-in-the-making

 

The most perfectly imperfect debutante…

Marigold Spencer was never supposed to have a London Season. For
heaven’s sake, she was never even supposed to become a lady! The
former housemaid of a duke, Marigold is thrust into the limelight when her
siblings marry far above their stations. Suddenly faced with the marriage
mart, her escort and chaperone is not only one of ton’s most notorious
scoundrels**,** but the utterly infuriating man still won’t tell her
where he got the knife wound that led him to her bed that night.

 

…can still tempt the deadliest of rogues…

Lord Leigh Blakeley’s path took a sharp turn from seductive rake to
vengeful assassin long ago. Yet when he finally returns home for a visit, he
nearly ruins his new sister-in-law’s reputation for good by falling
into her bed after a misadventure. Now Leigh finds himself forced to play
chaperone to a debutante… one who unexpectedly enchants his cynical heart.
And when Leigh foolishly proposes to teach the innocent young Miss Spencer
something of the ways of pleasure, he ignites an inferno of passion that
quickly turns unquenchable.

When another man presents Miss Spencer with an irresistible proposition,
Leigh realizes the desire of his heart is quickly slipping away. Though he’s
never intended to wed, Leigh finds himself making an offer Miss Spencer
can’t possibly refuse… or can she?

 

In this tantalizing Regency romance by USA Today bestselling author Fenna
Edgewood, desire knows no bounds as the most unlikely of lovers succumb to
the flames of their passion and defy society’s expectations.

“Over my dead body would I ever leave him and return to the
agency.” Norma remembers those words that now prove to be untrue as she
rejoins Atropos-a covert government organization-after so many bloodless
years. She has just carried out her first mission back, suspiciously without
her team. Something tells her things are not what they seem and betrayal is
imminent.

decommissioned, and things need to change. Norma is beginning to speculate
that it isn’t her skill set that the agency wants, Instead, accepting her
back was their way of gaining access to a more lethal successor.

escape the clandestine smoky mirrors of Washington DC and see clearly before
it’s too late.

 

Reviews

“‘The Atropos Maker’ is a fast-paced and expertly plotted
two-fisted political thriller focusing on corrupt international and domestic
organizations, secret weapons, and conspiracies,” wrote IndieReader in
their 4.8-star review.

 

“Stylishly written,” wrote Joe Kilgore – The US Review of Books.
“This is an engaging read that pushes the envelope of the thriller
genre. Author Lujan has chosen to steep her tale in an intensely
introspective tone. Burrowing deeply within the psyche and soul of her
protagonist, she paints a harrowing picture of how one individual musters up
the fortitude to go from victim to survivor to ruler of her own
fate—but not without the toll the harshest of life’s injuries
often inflict.

 

“The suspense in the book is irresistible,” wrote Pacific Book
Review in their Starred Review. “The author knows how to entice
readers by introducing subplots which increase one’s focus to finish
the book . . . ‘The Atropos Maker’ is a great read for those who
fancy thrillers, drama, conspiracy stories, military fiction and a great
plot.”

Review

The Atropos Maker is a well-crafted story. The author does a good job of keeping you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what discoveries Norma will make, what danger she’ll get herself into, all while giving depth and breadth to her characters. You get suspense, action, and heart all in one book. Reading The Atropos Maker is like watching an action spy movie. It really does play out in your mind.

to mentor and motivate women dealing with similar issues.

The Fifth Horseman by Jon Smith #blogtour #fantasy #bookreview #comedy #giveaway #thefifthhorseman #rabtbooktours @RABTBookTours @jonsmith_author

Comedy/Fantasy/Mythical Realism/Fiction

Date Published: 02-07-2023

Publisher: Balkon Media

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Internationally published bestselling author Jon Smith makes his adult
debut with The Fifth Horseman, a modern comic fantasy that rides roughshod
over established mythology and the rules of life… and death.

The Fifth Horseman is a darkly comic tale of two thirty-somethings caught
between our world and the afterlife, who must embrace their role as reapers
to prevent the End Times. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets Father
Ted
, perfect for fans of Ben Aaronovitch, Terry Pratchett, and Neil
Gaiman.

 

Death is just a day job you can’t quit…

Emma and Mark had a bad day. The worst part of it was dying. But, according
to Death, the Rider on the Pale Horse and first horseman of the apocalypse,
things aren’t that simple. Turns out the sand in their hourglass is
stuck in place. Somewhere between life and death, they’re put to work
as Death’s assistants, reaping the souls of the living until
it’s time for their final clock out…

To compound matters, despite their omnipotence, the four horsemen are
facing an existential threat – one they’re ill-equipped and
ill-prepared to combat.

Emma and Mark must reap like their afterlives depend on it, to help prevent
the End Times – even if it means scuppering the one opportunity they
have at being granted a second chance at life.

 

Filled with humour, romantic tension, and suspense, Jon Smith utilises a
witty, lightly sarcastic ensemble of flawed but loveable characters. It will
appeal to mainstream fantasy readers and hopeless romantics, as well as
those who enjoy a good story and a good laugh.

 

Review

Well written with deep character development and fascinating system. The story progression kept me on my toes and I couldn’t predict the next step. I appreciated the humor and the way the author used it at perfect moments. Overall, this is an excellent story, with great characters and wonderful world building.

About the Author

 Jon Smith is the bestselling author of 14 books for children, teens, and
adults. His books have sold more than 500,000 copies and are published in
seven languages.

In addition to writing books, Jon is an award-winning screenwriter and
musical theatre lyricist and librettist with productions at the Birmingham
Hippodrome, Belfast Waterfront and London’s Park & Waterloo East

Jon enjoyed a happy childhood—making daisy chains, holidays in the
sun and an obsessive interest in all things fantasy. No brace, few spots and
only one broken bone and one broken heart (not his). It all went
swimmingly.

Father of four, he lives near Liverpool with his wife, Mrs. Smith, and
their two school-age children. When he grows up he’d like to be a
librarian.

My mother called me a thrill seeker as a kid. That continued to be a fair
assessment throughout my life, but with unforeseen consequences. For 57
years I managed to cheat death as I endured accidents such as a head-on car
collision that catapulted me through two windshields or hitting a telephone
pole at 110 MPH on a motorcycle, to name just a couple. But none of these
true-life experiences compared to what came after my cancer diagnosis. In
this book I use words to paint you alongside as I detail all my incredible
life challenges and experiences. Ride along the emotional roller coaster
that includes 17 surgeries and the domino effect of events that resulted.
After the cancer diagnosis, an internal fight also ensued. It was the mental
battle against the shadowy figures on my shoulders who constantly whispered
morbid thoughts.
