Starfish Island by [Brown, Deborah]

Author Deborah Brown is no stranger to Paradise; she wrote nine books about it. Now, she has written another book to get you daydreaming: Starfish Island.

After a bad break-up, Nicole Alexander is ready for a change. When she inherits a house on Starfish Island from a grandmother she never knew, it seems like the perfect opportunity for starting over. But soon after moving in, Nicole receives a cryptic message warning her to leave immediately. 

Determined to get to the bottom of the hauntings, Nicole starts an investigation. When things get hot and heavy with one of the island’s most charismatic residents, Michael Edwards, Nicole begins to suspect his amorous attention might be a cover for dark motives.

A Halloween treat from Romance Rebels Publishing: Shifters Hallows Eve!




Shifters Hallows Eve is a collection of short stories of all things paranormal and relevant to Hallows Eve or Samhain.

Shifters Hallows Eve by [King, Lori, Hart, Audra, Shaw, Bethany, Evans, Bryce, Butler, R. E., Boon, Elle, Mills, Julia, Jones, KD, Bell, Melissa, Snark, Melissa, Blevins, Candace, Lea , Sydney]
So, do you want a sample?
Here is a story by my friend Melissa Bell titled The Valley of Shadows:

Steeped in centuries of tradition and in accordance with the Laws of Lupine. When the daughter of an Alpha comes of age, she stands before her pack as the prized female. Held in the Valley of Shadows, on All Hallows Eve is a twisted game of survival. Only the eldest unmated son of the Alpha’s may compete for if they fail it means they are dead. It is part of an ancient ceremony one that will bring packs together from far and wide. It’s an honor to be chosen to run the gauntlet, and a disgrace not to accept.
EXCERPT: 
He watched as Draven left the cave without looking back, identifying the man’s loss by the way the Grand Alpha carried his shoulders. He wore them in a heavily slouched fashion that exuded defeat and failure. On another day he may have found it within himself to feel sorry for the male but today his only concern was for his mate, Rainah. Turning to her now, his heart almost broke at the way her body wracked with silent shellacking. His arms circled her from behind and he whispered gently in her ear, “Shhh, I’ve you.” His blooded thumbs finding the cuffs around her wrists to unlock them by smearing her father’s blood on them. The rattle of the chains as they broke open and clattered to the floor was almost painful to his sensitive ears.
When Rainah was no longer leashed she snarled and wriggled in his embrace but he wasn’t ready to let her go. Spinning her in his arms he caged her body, wedging her back against the stone wall. Flattening his palms on the rocky surface either side of her head, he leaned in closely and sniffed at her neck. Running his nose up along the column of her throat he nipped at her jawline before suckling on her earlobe. His body warming, hardening, aching for what it knew belonged to him and him alone to the point of delirious pain. His heart beating profusely inside his chest, sensing the rise of Rainah’s inner wolf.
Rainah plastered her hands on the male’s naked chest and gave a warning snarl as she attempted to shove him back. He was too close, too male and too everywhere and too everything. She couldn’t think when he was close enough to share oxygen. He smelt too wild, looked too hot and damn it to hell her body wanted him too much. Her inner wolf instantly recognised him as her true mate when she surfaced from the spell of the chains.
Boon felt Rainah’s nails dig into the skin on his chest and it made him harder than hell. The images racing through his brain of hot summer nights and cold winters evenings in front of a fire, buried deep inside his mate and her claws raking down his back as she came apart at the seams under him. Fuck he’d never wanted a female like he wanted Rainah, and something told him that if she allowed him to claim her he’d always want her with a fierceness he wasn’t sure either one of them could handle.

Taking requests: What kind of books do you want me to blog about?

I have blogged about Young Adult, Paranormal Fiction, Foodie Romance, Foodie Mystery and Crime Fiction. I am always on the hunt to discover independent writers in Australia and New Zealand. I know that my writer friend, Jessica Samuels is coming up with Tales from Behind the Counter soon. I can so identify with that as I worked retail decades ago. I also blogged about an environmental book and literature with a political slant.

Tell me, what should my next blogs be about? Which writer should I highlight? What publisher should stand in the limelight? Don't be shy, now.

To respond, send me a private message on Facebook. I am listed under Liz Kingsbury McKeown or send me a message on Twitter. My handle is: @WritersBoost

I will be blogging again next weekend.

The fruits of a nightmare: Explore the intriguing tale of The Harris Sisters.

The Harris SistersInspired by a reccurring nightmare, Amie Jane aged 16, woke in the middle of the night and scribbled down on paper the repeated scene she kept seeing in her dreams, and placed it folded within her paperwork. She lived by the belief ‘If you don't have the courage to chase your dreams, how can you possibly catch them’?
 When one family’s secret reveals an unknown danger, it uncovers a world where the terrifying things children see in the dark are not just shadows or the result of an overactive imagination, but the very creatures they imagine them to be. In this world, reality and fantasy become the same. Every day humans are hunted like prey and battle to survive. Love is cruel, betrayal is real, and evil presents itself around every bend.
It all comes back to one night and the chance to change the life you wished away. It all begins with a secret; a treasured possession, which was found quite by accident.
