Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss.

Conduct Unbecoming – Excerpt Chapter Seven

Originally posted on Dellani Oakes:

conduct unbecoming front coverNot everyone is a fan of Teague McMurtry. In fact, some people thoroughly detest him. One such is Major Victor Quartermain. Once a rival for Isobel’s hand, Teague maintains that the better man was the one who gave her up—himself. He and Quartermain hate one another, and not just because of Isobel. Victor has a secret that could not just ruin his career, it could get him killed. He will do anything it takes to protect himself.

Moonlight on the water didn’t make him feel romantic. He was too angry to feel anything else. I missed! At that close a range. Unforgivable! He sat on the deck of his boat, cradling his weapon. He broke it down to its component parts and dropped a piece overboard. The boat drifted a little and he dropped another piece. He continued the process until the last part hit the water and sank.

Hills and crosses

Originally posted on Daily Echo:

x hobhurst, ballcross, bakewell, sheffield weekend 026Sunday morning dawned damp with a promise of sunshine and we eventually headed out towards Bakewell to explore a hillfort. We knew it was there somewhere and had seen a likely site from the church on the other side of the valley. We drove to the lane we needed to walk to the hill. Or so we thought. The hillside certainly looked ‘suspect’ and in keeping with others we have seen. Now, however, it also looks like a golf course. We continued to climb, the wind roaring in the trees that cover the hillside, catching sight of odd features that seem reminiscent of other such sites, and a clear view of Fin Cop from the hairpin bend in the road. A lane led off on a nice level path from there… we, of course, continued the long, steep climb to the top, knowing by now that the sign saying ‘unsuitable…

Rosie’s Book Review Team #RBRT Jessie reviews A Year In The Life Of A Playground Mother by Christie Barlow

Today’s book review comes from Jessie, she blogs at


She chose to read and review a book in conjunction with Brook Cottage Book Tours


I am part of a book club.  One of the many small groups of women who get together once a month, theoretically having all recently read the same book.  Of course, before we can talk about the book we have to pour some drinks, eat some snacks and catch up on the last month. And, yes, that can take most of our time, but we always get around to the book… eventually.

Reading this book, was like having a surprise guest at book club. She comes in though the door, wearing comfy clothes and monster slippers, which seems like a pretty good mark in her favour. Then she brings out her drink of choice which she brought to share – also a mark in her favour. The fact…

Rosie’s Avid readers are people who like reading and have a book to tell us about, they are the voice of a friend who says ” I just read this book….”


Avid readers’ thoughts.

Heart and Soul  by Maeve Binchy .  What a wonderful surprise! I found another Maeve Binchy,  written in her wonderful unique style. Whatever the problem there is always an answer, a good mix of characters from many backgrounds & yet they all work together for good.  Even some old favourites appear, places & people you just feel at home in Dublin.

Book description.

With the insight, humour, and compassion we have come to expect from her, Maeve Binchy tells a story of family, friends, patients, and staff who are part of a heart clinic in a community caught between the old and the new Ireland.

Dr. Clara Casey has been offered the thankless job of establishing the…

Networking for Introverts

Last week I posted a T shirt on my Facebook page that said “Introverts Unite. We’re Here. We’re Uncomfortable. We Want to Go Home.” My message was “I need one of these.” I got dozens of “likes” and several comments, most of which were “me too!”.

Now, if you saw me in action, you wouldn’t think I was an introvert. I lead a extroverted life, teaching, running meetings, and being “on” at events. Last weekend I co-hosted a workshop called “Networking for Fun and Profit”, and it made me think a lot about skills introverts can develop to help them navigate the world of networking. Networking happens at conferences, at book readings, at workshops, at meetings. It can be informal (like at the post office, or after a service), or formal. It can be work related or completely social. It can be planned, or…

Today, is a very special day for me as I’ve been waiting for this for a very long time. Today, I’m proud (and very moved) to present the ‘firstborn’ of my beloved friend, MM Jaye. Her book will be launched next month, on November 21st, and today she’s touring for the cover reveal. I’m quite certain that her Aegean Lovers Series will enthuse the fans of both women’s fiction and romance.

Book One is Fate Accompli which is a true gem. I’ve had the pleasure and the honor to beta read for MM Jaye and I can vouch for its fresh voice and well-fleshed out, delightful characters. The book comes in two versions–clean and spicy–so that you can adjust the heat level of Alex and Monica’s passion to your liking!

The tour is brought to you by Book Enthusiast Promotions. Make sure to enter the giveaway at the end of…
