Dove IslandDove Island by Miss Mae
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an intriguing short story. I really enjoyed it.

I would normally do a character review, but as there are only Christopher and Roxanne in it, it would cause spoilers so I will forgo this in this instance.

This story is only eleven pages long, so it took me less than five minutes to read. There is so much potential for this story. I felt that it could be expanded, as the beginning seemed more like the middle to me. I would have liked to have read about the pirate attack and not just the after affects. Nevertheless, the story did hook me from the beginning. There is very little in the way of character growth as such due to the short length. In a way, the scene the author created reminded me of the one with Jack and Rose in 'Titanic' sans the icebergs and cold water (seeing as it is set in warm, shark infested waters). However, without it being as grim considering it finishes on a relatively happy and hopeful note. Unfortunately, this book left me feeling a little disappointed that the story wasn't longer. There was also very little in the way of action, though the description of the scene from the aftermath was incredibly detailed and I could picture it in my mind's eye with ease.

I am a fan of Miss Mae's books in general. I love her writing style, which is fast paced and entertaining, and the flow was great. However, this story is not one of her best in my opinion. Having said that, I am looking forward to reading more of her books in the future.

As there are no scenes of a sexual nature, nor any profanity, younger readers would be fine while reading this short story. However, I recommend this book to readers who are looking for a quick read if you have a spare five minutes. - Lynn Worton

Book Review of Edge of Yesterday (Edge Series Book 1) by Tarah Scott & Sue-Ellen Welfonder @TarahScott @SE_Welfonder



Book Title: Edge Of Yesterday (Edge Series #1)
Genre: Historical Time Travel Romance
Pages: 363
Author:  Tarah Scott & Sue-Ellen Welfonder
Date Published: 27 December 2016

Synopsis:

Two of Scottish romance’s most loved authors have joined pens to write a thrilling new time travel series filled with passion, danger, and intrigue. These never-before-published novels will sweep you to Scotland’s Highland Heatheredge, where magic is real, time is relevant, and there is no escape from desire…

Men are disappearing in the Highland crofting village of Heatheredge. The authorities suspect foul play, but without signs of violence—or bodies—they can’t prove a thing.

World champion swordsman Cailean Ross is living the fantasy of a lifetime as the victor of Heatheredge’s medieval reenactment Gathering. But when the fantasy turns into reality, swordplay becomes a fight to the death and he finds himself among the ‘missing’ statistics.

Julianna Mackay flees a man she fears is an evil wizard and literally runs into handsome Cailean Ross. Cailean defends Lady Julianna from her attackers. Together, they set out in search of the key to a six-hundred-year-old curse that can only be broken in medieval Scotland.

When the veil of time is lifted, Cailean and Julianna find that love may not be enough to save them or those they hold dear.

Review:


Edge of Yesterday (Edge Series, #1)Edge of Yesterday by Sue-Ellen Welfonder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book in a new historical time-travel romance series written by Tarah Scott and Sue-Ellen Welfonder. I am a huge fan of Tarah Scott's books, so when I found out she was co-writing this series with Sue-Ellen Welfonder, I became curious and decided to give this book a go. I am glad I did because I loved it!

Cailean Ross is a modern day professor who also happens to be a world champion swordsman. I wasn't sure if I liked him at first as he came across as conceited and a little full of himself. However, as the story progressed I began to like him more. He has the soul of a warrior. When he finds himself mysteriously sent back in time during a reenactment in the Scottish village of Heatheredge, he is torn between finding a way home and staying with the woman he has come to love.

Julianna Mackay is a wonderfully strong female character. In a time of male dominance, she fights every day for her independence. She is incredibly strong willed and determined. When she literally runs into the broad chest of Cailean Ross after fleeing for her life, she never expected to have any feelings towards him. But as danger threatens to tear them apart, she can no longer deny her attraction.

I don't read many historical time-travel romances. However, I just had to read this one. Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, I was unable to purchase a copy. Instead, thanks to Prime, I was able to borrow this book through the lending library. As soon as I had downloaded it, I began reading. I was quickly swept up in the tale, which is told through the eyes of both Cailean and Julianna and gives the reader an insight into their thoughts and feelings. I have never been to a medieval reenactment, so was intrigued by how the village of Heatheredge prepared for the event by placing false fascias over the modern looking buildings and shops.

This story took me on a huge adventure into the past, with danger following not far behind. I must admit that I liked meeting a few of the other characters too, though one or two not so much. I liked Lennox, Julianna's brother. He too is a warrior and a kind and just man. However, I took an instant dislike to Val Ross and another character called Crowe. As the story unfolded I found myself holding my breath in places and sitting on the edge of the seat in others. There are kidnappings, sword fights and a mystery surrounding how or why Cailean was transported back in time. The romance between Cailean and Julianna is touching at times. I must admit that, having read a few of Tarah Scott's more racier books, I was expecting a little more in the way of heat between the two. I'm not saying that those scenes were not devoid of heat, only a little more subdued than I had expected though no less explicit. Other readers may not have the same response. Nevertheless, I enjoyed watching their relationship grow. Cailean's character also grows throughout the story and I enjoyed watching him settle into the 14th Century as if putting on a glove. He truly is an old soul. The description of both the present and the past were vividly written and I felt like I was actually there, standing next to Cailean or Julianna and seeing exactly what they saw. In fact, I became so emersed that I forgot I was even in modern day England and not 1395. It was a little jarring to the senses when I finished the story, let me tell you!

The story does end on a small cliffhanger, but this only left me itching to get my hands on the second book, which is told through the eyes of Lennox and Ginny (Cailean's sister) to see what happens next.

Tarah Scott and Sue-Ellen Welfonder have written a fantastic historical time travel romance. I love their writing style which is fast paced and entertaining, and the flow is wonderful too. Since Tarah Scott is already one of my favourite authors, I will have to add Sue-Ellen Welfonder onto my list too. I am looking forward to reading more of both authors' books in the future.

Due to scenes of a sexual nature that are rather on the explicit side and some bad language, I do not recommend this book to readers under the age of 16. I do, however, highly recommend this book if you love historical, time travel or contemporary romances. - Lynn Worton

Release Day Blitz: Ego Maniac by Vi Keeland @ViKeeland

  egomaniac-available-now 

Today, I am pleased to share with you that Ego Maniac by Vi Keeland is now available! I can't wait to read it! 


    Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

Book Review & Author Interview - Chase: The Hunt for the Mute Poetess by Thomas Dellenbusch @MeinKopfKino



Book Title: Chase: The Hunt for the Mute Poetess
Genre: Crime Thriller
Pages: 116
Author: Thomas Dellenbusch
Date Published: 31 August 2016

Synopsis:

Translated Version from the popular German book series of Movie-Length-Theatre-Of-The-Mind-Stories.

Enrique "Rique" Allmers runs a security firm in Hamburg, Germany. When he encounters a young woman fleeing from pursuers through the local fish-market, he takes her under his wing. They get away, but the same men - now with reinforcements - are still on their tail. Rique doesn’t know
who she is, or the identity of those who are after her. Because she doesn’t speak a word to him…

Review:

Chase: The Hunt for the Mute PoetessChase: The Hunt for the Mute Poetess by Thomas Dellenbusch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a crime thriller that has been translated from German into English. I really enjoyed it!

Enrique "Rique" Allmers is a wonderful character. I liked him a lot. He runs a security firm called CHASE, which investigates mostly business related espionage and crimes. When a deaf mute young woman literary runs into his arms, his protective instincts kick in. As he investigates, danger is never very far behind. Can he keep Katja from the clutches of an extremely evil man?

I must admit that I may not have read this book if the author had not contacted me. I have so many books on my reading list that I originally turned him down. However, after thinking about it, I changed my mind and purchased a copy to read in my own time. I'm glad I did because once I started to read it, I didn't put it down until I'd finished it.

Set in Germany, this book takes the reader on a thrilling adventure of danger, suspense, mystery and romance. Mostly told through Rique's point of view (although some scenes are through Katja's eyes), it is a pulse pounding ride, with chases, gun fights and several twists that keep a reader hooked. There are several interesting characters in this story. Katja is a deaf mute, so there is very little in the way of dialogue from her, but the author has written her in a realistic and expressive manner that makes you forget that she can't hear or speak. She can, however, lip read and use sign language, and is an author of poetry. Then there are Rique's work colleagues. They seem like a rag tag bunch at first, but they all have their own specialty and are highly professional. I love Dr. Liang. Although he's an octogenarian, he is well versed in martial arts and owns a gym where Rique and the rest of the team train. Chen Lu is his granddaughter and part of Rique's team, which also consists of: Jerome, Ben, Maik, Nikolai, Hannes and Andree. I must admit that I would have loved to know more about CHASE, as they seem to skirt pretty closely to the edge of the law at times to get things done. Speaking of skirting the edge of the law, I took an instant dislike to Lorenzo Marone, who is not a very nice man. He runs a prostitution ring and is more a mafia don than businessman. As to why he was after Katja, you'll just have to read the book to find out.

I reached the end of the book with mixed feelings, sad that it had ended but happy at the way it concluded. I am not sure if I would call this a movie-length story though, as it felt too short. However, maybe I'm just being difficult by wanting to read more.

Thomas Dellenbusch has written an intriguing crime thriller. I love his fast paced writing style. However, whether it was because it had been translated from German to English, I found some of the story didn't flow smoothly in places (other readers may not be of the same opinion). Nevertheless, this didn't detract from my enjoyment of it. I would definitely consider reading more books by this author in the future.

Although there are no explicit scenes of a sexual nature, I do not recommend this book for younger readers due to some violence. However, I highly recommend this book if you love crime thrillers/mystery/suspense genres. - Lynn Worton

Author Interview:

Today, I have pleasure in introducing Thomas Dellenbusch, the author of Chase: The Hunt for the Mute Poetess. He was kind enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to answer some questions:

1. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
 
When I was 9 years old. I asked my parents to gift me a typewriter instead of toys for Christmas, I got one and I wrote my first short stories on it.

2. How long does it take you to write a book?

Oh... that lasts long, because I need a long time to plot. Almost all of my books contain closing circles or surprising turning points or something like that. Even they are in comparison short novels, to me it is important that they are special. That point needs the most of the time. But when the plot is ready, it takes only a few weeks to write them down. For example: “The Nobel Prize” (only available in German) is the shortest one, but it became a palindrome. It needed the longest time for research.

3. What do you think makes a great story?

It's a combination of a.) excitement b.) emotions c.) writing class (text quality) and creating pictures in your mind.

4. How do you balance family and writing?

I do not have any family. So, no problems...

5. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

Mostly it's a kind of stuff I am interested in. “The Weichensteller” (only available in German) is about time travelling. “Love is not an Emotion” (only available in German) is about philosophy. And “Chase” (also available in English) is about a mysterious puzzling thriller.

6. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your book/s?

Learning how to write like being in the position of a film-director.

7. How many books have you written? Which is your favourite?

Seven single stories (and 2 anthologies). My favourite is “Verstecktes Herz” (Hidden Heart, only available in German).

8. Are your characters based on anyone you know?

No, except of one exception, which I will not reveal.

9. Do you have a favourite place you love to write?

My desktop at home or with pencil and paper in a wood.

10. How hard is it to get published?

In Germany? Very hard. I never tried it, I founded my own publishing company with 7 authors meanwhile.

11. What do your family and friends think about your books?

They are enthusiastic about them. Of course. What else?

12. What do you like to do when you are not writing?

Playing Boardgames and reading books

13. Do you have any suggestions to help aspiring writers better themselves and their craft? If so, what are they?

a.) reading good books b.) reading bad books c.) reading books about what the difference is.

14. As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up? 

At first I want to be a philosopher, then an author, then an actor. I became a police officer. But finally now I am an author :-)

15. What are your favourite books and which authors inspire you?

First of all Alice Munro.

16. For an aspiring writer what do you feel are certain do's and don’ts for getting their material published?

Finding a good editor. It's crucial. You definitely need another's view who knows what to look for.

17. What are you working on now?

I am working on a plot for the second “Chase” - I think, the subtitle will be “The Hunt for a Scottish King”.
