WATCHER BLITZ W/GIVEAWAY

Watcher 
by Shawnee Small 

BLURB

A stranger walks into a bar sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but for Poesy Wharton, it’s no joke at all.

For Poesy, a twenty-something waitress who’s living paycheck to paycheck, life on Tybee Island is predictably normal until Adam Walker drifts into Paddy’s Bar and Grill, the small town dive where she works. Unable to resist his quirky, English reserve and the strange tingling that plagues her every time they touch, Poesy finds herself drawn to Adam even against the advice of her two best friends, Birdie and Haylee Jane.

When bad things begin to happen including the brutal murder of another local waitress, Poesy finds herself caught between the man she wants and a secret world that could take away everything she knows and loves.

Poesy must choose her path wisely or lose everything . . . but did she ever have a choice?

Graham Hodson lives for adventure. His entire life has revolved around his obsessive wanderlust. His inner fear of staying in one place or being with one person for too long has kept him on the go. The last thing he expects is a sudden diagnosis to ground his travel—permanently.

Boyce “BC” Brooks has screwed up his lifelong dream of being the captain of the English national rugby team. He’s lost everything. When his uncle leaves him an inn and a dog in Cornwall, he has little choice but to try his hand at innkeeper.

Can two jokesters kicked around by life and their own decisions find stability when their world shakes beneath their feet?



Weddings.

Weddings were a pain more excruciating than a broken nose, or tooth, or both—an event to be avoided when at all possible. Only the blissfully ignorant would voluntarily submit themselves to the farce of “marital bliss,” never mind the noise, whimpering women, and a priest who would undoubtedly drone on and on unless someone whacked him upside the head.

Why did I agree to this shit? If this bint sobs into my sleeve one more sodding time, I’ll shove her into the aisle, manners be damned. I should’ve claimed a sudden bout of dengue fever in Macau and been done with it.

Graham Hodson had returned home early from yet another adventure to attend the wedding of his best mate, Francis, and his soon-to-be husband, former rugby star Caddock Stanford. He’d contemplated doing a runner. His twin brother, Rupert, had threatened to drag him in by the ear, pointing out that they couldn’t disappoint their childhood friend, could they?

Even if he were tempted to do so, Joanne, Rupert’s wife, had promised untold pain if he did anything to ruin Francis’s day. The spoilsport also vetoed all of his ideas to improve the day for the two grooms. He didn’t see why they wouldn’t enjoy having massive cod strung up to their escape vehicle.

Graham glanced across the room, and his mood brightened when he spotted an old mate, Jack Sasaki. They’d spent summers playing on Cornwall beaches together as kids, along with Rupert. They often flirted with the same boys, though one date with each other had been enough to realise they made far better friends.

The half-Japanese and half-Cornish man made his living as a barber a few villages over, in Fowey. Graham hadn’t seen him in a while and would have to find time while home to have a beer and chat with him. He hoped Jack was having better luck romantically than he currently was.

Wanderlust didn’t come with the perks of being romantically available. His passport might’ve been filled with stamps, but his nights had been filled with loneliness—aside from occasional casual sex. His adventures brought joy to his life.

I don’t sodding need anyone to be happy.

Now, repeat the mantra until the wedding stops making you act stupidly moody.

It might be the wedding of a close friend, but boredom continued to make his mind drift. Did anyone other than the couple care about the cute dog with a bow tie or the adorable child in the tuxedo? No. The answer would always be no. People went to ceremonies for the food and drink that followed after, and no one would ever be able to convince him otherwise.

A sniffle from the woman beside him was a reminder that maybe some people did care. With a less cynical view, Graham could admit the tuxedos had been well chosen. Tastefully done bouquets of white roses were adorned with pale blue ribbons that had antiqued copper rugby charms dangling from them.

Adorable.

Graham could also admit, however painfully, that the blissful happiness on Francis’s face made him slightly envious. “Sodding weddings.”

A gasp from the weepy twit reminded him not to mutter out loud. He summoned a smile when Francis glanced his way. The things one did for friends.

Oh, hello.

Who the bloody hell are you?

Never mind who you are. Can I see you naked?

An absolutely gorgeous bloke sitting on Caddock’s side of the church had caught his attention. Tall, with a closely shaved head and black beard, he had a strong jaw—sharp lines all over really, from what Graham could see. He wore a suit that bordered on obscene for the way it clung to his muscled form.

Suddenly this event looks far more interesting than it did a minute ago. Now how do I get myself an introduction? Should be easy. It’s a wedding; single people come to hook up at them, right?

Right.

Their eyes met. Almost identical grins of acknowledgement followed, which intrigued Graham. People didn’t always read him so well. Mr Tall, Bald, and Gorgeous smirked as if he knew exactly what Graham had been thinking.

They’d definitely made a connection.

Interesting.

If the wedding ceremony hadn’t been in full swing, Graham would’ve immediately wandered over to introduce himself. They settled for not so subtle flirtatious smirks. His impatience grew more palpable waiting for it to be over.

Their eyes continually drifted towards one another. An electric shock hit him each time. It sounded dramatic even in his head—but he did feel a mysterious sense of adventure just from contemplating a brief encounter with the mystery man.





Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.

Good kinda CRAZY Release

Front Cover

Good Kinda Crazy by Jettie Woodruff is now live on Amazon!!

Introducing the talented and beautiful cover model, Jenna Lynn!!!

16110475_745560802286538_4786138501840109568_n
blurb
I would like to tell you a story about true friends, change, and real love. This is deeper than a love story, this is a connection you can’t possibly explain without first experiencing it, a love rarely found. When all I wanted to do was go home and put it all behind me, one chance meeting sent me in another direction. I traveled a road I could have never imagined.
Before you invest your time in our story, I should warn you, these people aren’t like your typical friends. These kinds of friends are few and far between. If you don’t believe in love at first sight, or second chance love, then you should probably skip our story.
I was written in him, he was written in me, we were written in the stars.
My hope is that you go into our story with an open mind and like me, find something life-changing you can take with you. Because one person believed in me, I didn’t give up. I became someone I didn’t even know I wanted to be.
For her. For him. For me. For us. For humanity.

"I learned it was okay to just be me. I learned we’re not all the same and we’re not supposed to be. Most of all, I learned to love with all my heart and soul."
Good Kinda Crazy by Jettie Woodruff, ©2017
"Everyone deserves that kind of love, including me. The kind of love where you spend every single day building each other up. The kind of love where even a five-minute quickie behind a tree is more than just sex. The kind of love where cutting up veggies and doing the dishes together is a form of foreplay. The kind of love where kissing is your favorite thing to do. The kind of love where you can’t be near each other without touching. The kind of love where you connect so deeply it’s almost painful, in a good kinda crazy way. The kind that entwined our souls in and out of the Universe. The kind even death couldn’t separate."

About the Author
I've always been a writer and a storyteller, or a bullshitter as my dad would say, but I've never written what should be read. I'm very good at writing what my readers want me to write, but I did that. Now I want to write what they need to hear. If I can write a love story and entwine it with a little life advice to help make this a better place to live for all of us, then that's what I want to be a part of. My first book since deciding to be a part of the solution and not part of the problem is Peace, Love, Resistance. Why the change when I was doing so good? You get what you put out and I want to read and write what I want back. Simple as that.
Love,
Jettie

Blurb

Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.

Shane Olson, who previously dated Priscilla’s sister, Margaret, isn’t opposed to a marriage of convenience for the sake of furthering his business interests, but Priscilla – with her wild ways – is just about the last woman he’d choose to marry.

In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.

Only she's like the black sheep of the family always traveling and wanting to be free. If it her situation comes out she will loose the money she desperately needs. 
Shane wants one thing to be on the top of the Story empire and he needs a Story to do it. With a plan in place to marry Margret he's set. Except things don't go his way and it's the youngest Story that has the solutions.
However not all things are fun in love and war and these two are about to find out how much they can stand each other. Not to mention Priscilla only cares about one thing. Can they make it work?

Review:

Oh I loved this story by Nikki Ashton, when I first got it I thought it would be an anthology about her stories, but then I remembered this is a true love story with heartache and pain. Millie has everything set she's ready to marry the man in front, however when his secret is revealed it's Millie that will be crushed to pieces. What is a girl to do after that? Flee to take on a job as a home school teacher for the sweetest and brightest child around. What she doesn't know or expect his the childs dad Jesse. He's a hard working Cowboy with a stubborn as temper and a love loss like no other. When they lay eyes on each other I would like to wish it was true love, but for Jesse, Millie is not wanted but his daughter needs to learn and regular schools were working. A bond is formed between Millie and the family one that will melt your heart to pieces and fall in love. All I can say is this book was amazing and love the grown was perfect. Don't count Jesse out because there will be drama and heartache where he is concerned. Millie can only hope to help the family before she goes back home. Because this was only temporary.
