You walk up to field, thinking nothing can get better than this. My life has been all about sports, women and my family. I'm the MVP of my life. I'm unstoppable, nothing can break me. 



Until one day, she walked up to field to watch me play. In softball, there isn't a lot that can trip me up. But this girl, did just that. She is my equal on and off the field. I'm no longer the MVP of my game. She stole it from me. 



Now, when I walk up to the plate. I have two options, swing for the fences or strike out looking. 



The love for the game combined with the love for her could leave me broken.




Deep breath in, I walked over to Miranda. She continued to stare off into the group of dancers. I touched her shoulder. Her blue eyes shined up at me. I asked her, “Miranda, will you dance with me?”

I waited patiently for her answer, nervous as hell, she is going to say no? Miranda nodded her head yes.

I grabbed her hand and led her to the dance her; then pulling her close to me. She wrapped her arms around me pulling me closer to her; feeling her body move as she inhaled in.

The music consumed me; this song is exactly how I feel about Miranda. Holding her tight, I sang, “I have been searching for someone like you. I know I have my faults but with you my faults are forgotten. Now that I have you in my arms, I am never letting go. Tonight, it is about you and me, and I am never letting this moment go. You are the one I love, the one I need. Tonight, it is about you and me, I am not allowing you to let me go. You are mine, tonight.”

Miranda sighed and squeezed me tight. I knew she was feeling the exact same thing as me. 

The day I met her, I knew she was something different. Didn’t realize she was that some kind of different that was going to change my life. I have never and I mean never felt this way about anybody in my life. I have dated numerous girls; been serious about a few but nothing like this. She is all I want. She is what I need.

Miranda McDaniels is the only woman for me. I need her to realize that.

Blurb

Veva Matron is a feisty girl raging with suppressed anger and distrust of men.

Solis Cronus is a blindingly beautiful, Greek god of a guy, who likes to play women.

An electric hatred thunders through each of them about the other until one night, lightning strikes. A world of secrets reveals the destiny of two at odds with one another, and clouds the line between love and hate. Can a lively girl find calm in the stormy tension of a boy made of sunshine and sin?

The mythical tale of Zeus and Hera reignites in this modern interpretation of enemies to lovers. Full of flirty sexual angst and teasing temptation, Solis might be the one man who can extinguish Veva’s angry fire and ignite a different sort of flame: desire.

Title: Winterskin
Author: C.M. Estopare
Genre: Dark / Epic Fantasy

The Path.

Perilous. Brutal. Deadly.


It is said that if a man journeys in alone, he’ll never return and there will be no corpse to bury.



Thousands of lives hang in the balance. Braving the Path is the key to saving them, but their survival is not guaranteed. For the Path is brimming with flesh ravenous monsters and the threat of a sinister presence known only as “the Lady”, an eerie entity dwelling deep within the confines of the black forest.



Escorted by a chosen few, the Chaperon is prepared to move forward to preserve the lives of a mountain town planted deep within the forest. But even in the dead of winter, the dark creatures prowling the surrounding forest remain unsettled and are bent on decimating any who encroach upon their territory.

Katell Maeva, one of those assigned to escort the Chaperon, will have to prove herself on this journey if she wants to be deemed a full-fledged shieldmaiden. But even her unique abilities may not be strong enough to withstand the brutal attacks they’ll face. Can this young woman, desperate to save her own family, complete her mission to escort the Chaperon and lead the convoy to safety?



For her, this journey is more than just a challenge;
it’s the key to her future.

A world frozen within the cusp of winter, teetering upon an age that promises the evolution of mortals into gods, WINTERSKIN weaves the consequences of brutal ambition into the personal tale of shieldmaiden Katell Maeva’s growth into a woman bound in a darkening world gone feral.


WINTERSKIN is book one in the exciting dark fantasy series KINDRED SOULS. A fast-paced read, filled with jaw-dropping action, and savage femme fatales, WINTERSKIN is a riveting page turner that is impossible to put down.

TIME OUT BOOK TOUR












Title: Time Out (Dodie O'Dell Mysteries #2)

Author: Suzanne Trauth
Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Publisher: Lyrical Underground (January 17, 2017)
Paperback: 240 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1601837226
E-Book ASIN: B01EQ2N1W6

Publisher's Blurb: 
The amateur actors at the Etonville Little Theatre may be known for chewing the scenery, but restaurant manager Dodie O’Dell has something more appetizing for them to sink their teeth into. She’s been taking bows in her small New Jersey town for her theme menus, designed to complement the local productions. This fall, the community theatre is staging Arsenic and Old Lace, set in 1940s Brooklyn, so Dodie is serving up hot dogs, Italian ices, egg creams, and knishes at the weekend food festival.

All is going well until Antonio Digenza, the ex-Off-Off-Broadway director of the show, dies dramatically while noshing on a knish. As rumors of food poisoning quickly spread, Dodie scrambles to rescue the Windjammer restaurant’s reputation. But when clues point to foul play, she’s faced with a cast of suspects all auditioning for the part of DiGenza’s murderer. She’ll need to act fast to shine a spotlight on the killer—before it’s curtains for another victim . . .



Well rounded characters, plenty of humor, and an intimate look at community theatre and family restaurants enhance the mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy


The author brings you into the town with detailed and vivid pictures, you will feel like you are walking the streets in this town and visiting.




Time Out has a quirky cast of characters, and a wonderful balance of comedy, drama, secrets, intriguing twists and turns, clues, conspiracy theories, and a growing list of suspects that will keep you guessing and wanting more.

I did find it easier to follow who is or was who and certain relationships between them because I had read the previous book in this series.  I have a soft spot for community theatre and the off-beat, quirky kind of personalities that tend to gather there.  It is a continuous love-hate family sort of feel.

As in the previous book, the production has not even opened before tragedy strikes.
This time the crime and resultant rumor tries to ruin not only the production but also the diner by association. Dodie can't help herself and finds her imagination running away with itself as she digs for clues. Some things she uncovers she wishes she never learned and naturally puts herself in danger.

It is not a complicated mystery but a comfortable diversionary read with romantic conflict included.
