She is the author of two distinct series of books. The Moon Bound series, which is in the Paranormal Romance genre, and is gathering rave reviews, and the Taboo series, which is Contemporary with a hint of the forbidden.

Release Day Cowboy Passion by Helen Hardt







Book: Cowboy Passion — Bakersville Saga 5 & 6
Author: Helen Hardt
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Cowboy

Synopsis:
Treasuring Amber
Kissing handsome rancher Harper Bay to avoid a confrontation with her past isn’t on Amber Cross’s "to do" list, but sometimes a situation calls for desperate measures. She doesn’t expect the kiss to leave her breathless.
Amber is the hottest thing walking but clearly not Harper’s type. Nope, he’s not looking for a platinum blonde manicurist from the city, even if she is Bakersville’s reigning rodeo queen. After her surprising kiss leaves him panting, he changes his mind and decides to get to know her. Chemistry sizzles between them, but this gorgeous woman has a past that could get them both killed.
Trusting Sydney
Sam O’Donovan is bored with his stale life in Montana. When his brother-in-law offers him a great job and a cut of the McCray Ranch in Bakersville, Colorado, he’s ecstatic. This is the change he needs. As for beautiful Sydney Buchanan resurfacing? That’s icing on the cake.
Sydney’s back in Bakersville for one reason and one reason only. She needs to win as many large rodeo purses as she can to help her parents run their struggling ranch in Nevada. She doesn’t bank on running into Sam O’Donovan. All the sparks they shared five years earlier are still there, but so much else has changed. If only Sam could understand the decisions she made during their time apart…and trust her.                                           Buy The Book *****INSERT BUY LINKS WHEN AVAILABLE *****

Release Day Review - Since You've Been Gone

Since You've Been Gone
by Mary Jennifer Payne


Synopsis:

Is it possible to outrun your past? Fifteen-year-old Edie Fraser and her mother, Sydney, have been trying to do just that for five years. Now, things have gone from bad to worse. Not only has Edie had to move to another new school she's in a different country.
Sydney promises her that this is their chance at a fresh start, and Edie does her best to adjust to life in London, England, despite being targeted by the school bully. But when Sydney goes out to work the night shift and doesn't come home, Edie is terrified that the past has finally caught up with them.
Alone in a strange country, Edie is afraid to call the police for fear that she ll be sent back to her abusive father. Determined to find her mother, but with no idea where to start, she must now face the most difficult decision of her life.

Rating:  3/5 Stars

Review:

This was an interesting read that I feel has very high potential to be great.  Edie has been on the run with her mother for several years, trying their best to hide from Edie's abusive father.  The duo traveled all over Canada, always eventually being found, causing them to run away again.  After being caught for the last time in Canada, Edi's mother goes to the extreme and takes her daughter to London, hoping to shake her ex-husband once and for all.

Once in London, Edi's mother gets an under the table job cleaning posh buildings in downtown London.  After her first overnight shift, Edie's mother never returns home from work, causing Edie to tumble down a rabbit hole of theft and running from community enforcement.  She quickly pairs up with Jermaine, the boy that is taking the blame for her theft.  The pair works together to try to solve Edi's mother's disappearance as quickly as possible.

Although I did enjoy this story, I felt that it could have been a little bit more fleshed out.  I found that the characters were fairly flat, they needed just a bit more oomph to get me really into the story.  I feel that with a little bit more details, this story could have easily been a five star book.  As is it, I feel that it reads a bit like a rough draft; enough story to get the plot down, but needing more details to bring it to life.

Although I found the story in need of some work, I feel that this author shows a great deal of promise and I will definitely read more from her in the future.

Dead Wrath Release Day Blitz


Dead Wrath (Valkyrie #4)


Ragnarok is upon the worlds, and the time to fight is now. They come from all of the Nine Realms. Dark Elves, Dragons, Frost Giants, Elves ... They all come to fight for Odin.

And they answer to Valkyrie Brynhildr.

While Bryn grieves, struggling to cope with Sigrun's death, she knows too there is no time for tears. Odin is still a shade of himself and though there is no sign of Loki in all of the Nine Realms - Thor knows he is hiding in Midgard. As the Warriors gather, Bryn must head the offensive and enter the Human Realm in search of the Trickster and his henchman.

The war is silent and it rages all across the planet.

Ragnarok is here ...


In this, the 4th thrilling instalment in the Valkyrie series, Bryn takes the war to home turf. From New York to London, Interpol to CIA, Bryn and her team risk their lives to save their families, to the All-Father. And to prevent the end of the world.

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes... I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It's a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves - it works wonderfully...

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands - I shall forever remain cross-eyed.



I love talking to my readers so email me if you have any questions or even if you just want to chat...

Release Day Review - Press Play

Press Play
by: Eric Devine
 
 
Synopsis:
 
Greg Dunsmore, a.k.a. Dun the Ton, is focused on one thing: making a documentary that will guarantee his admission into the film school of his choice. Every day, Greg films his intense weight-loss focused workouts as well as the nonstop bullying that comes from his classmates. But when he captures footage of violent, extreme hazing by his high school’s championship-winning lacrosse team in the presence of his principal, Greg’s field of view is in for a readjustment.
Greg knows there is a story to be told, but it is not clear exactly what. And his attempts to find out the truth only create more obstacles, not to mention physical harm upon himself. Yet if Greg wants to make his exposé his ticket out of town rather than a veritable death sentence, he will have to learn to play the game and find a team to help him.
Combine the underbelly of Friday Night Lights with the unflinching honesty of Walter Dean Myers, and you will find yourself with Eric Devine’s novel of debatable truths, consequences, and realities.
 
Rating:  5/5 Stars
 
Review:

This book is an absolutely fantastic story of perseverance and transformation. Greg, AKA Dun the Ton, is an overweight sixteen year old boy struggling to become healthy with the help of his distant friend Quinn. While in the middle of a workout, Greg and Quinn witness the lacrosse team’s captain’s heinous hazing techniques. As guy is also a “film nerd”, he is able to capture this act on film. Since it seems that the entire town is part of this crime in some aspect, the boys have little that they can do other than gather information and proof that these horrific acts (that range from verbal and physical abuse to literally being force fed human feces) are occurring.

When I started this book, I was a bit on the fence about whether I would enjoy it as I rarely read books that are written in a boy’s point of view. These fears of uncertainty were quickly put to rest as I was sucked into the mystery of how these boys would be able to expose the lacrosse team’s captains as well as the school administration pulling the strings.

Out of all of the characters in this band of misfits, I felt the greatest connection to Ollie. I loved his perseverance throughout everything as well as his ability to speak frankly about whatever was occurring at the time. Near the end, my heart broke for him when he was dealt a hand he did not deserve. I would love to read more about Ollie.

Overall, this is a fantastic book I would definitely recommend to youth as it teaches the importance of perseverance and the importance of friendship. Five huge stars!
