Today I’m hosting a cover reveal for Katy Huth Jones’ new book. MERCY’S GIFT, book two in the fantasy series He Who Finds Mercy. The first book, MERCY’S PRINCE will be FREE on Amazon September 17-19, and MERCY’S GIFT will be released September 25.
While Prince Valerian adjusts to marriage as well as his new title, conspiracy brews in the south among disgruntled lords who wish to separate from the north. The situation is made even more volatile by a charismatic rebel leader whose guerilla tactics are swift and brutal.
The clandestine efforts of a witch hired by one of the lords render Valerian’s gift of Sight ineffective, and Merry’s Healing gift is sorely tested.
It has become dangerous for a northerner living in the south, and if the gifted young royals fail to stop the growing rebellion, evil will reign in Levathia.
The story begins in Book One, MERCY’S PRINCE:
As second son of the King of Levathia, seventeen-year-old Valerian desires the quiet life of a scholarly monk. But when he fails to save his older brother in battle, Valerian must instead become crown prince.
While a traitorous knight schemes against him, Valerian meets Mercy, a pacifist Healer with whom he can speak mind-to-mind like the great dragons. Their bond emboldens Valerian to seek out the legendary dragons and ask for their help against the monsters who killed his brother.
Can Valerian survive the traitor’s assassins long enough to find the dragons? And if he does, can he convince them to lay aside their hatred of humans and help him save the land from destruction?

Today is release day for Shari L. Tapscott’s new YA fantasy Anwen of Primewood (the Eldentimber Series: Book Two).
Never trust a gypsy: Anwen’s father has been saying this for years, but it isn’t until Anwen is robbed and deserted by Dimitri, a handsome gypsy prince, that she is forced to accept the wisdom of his words. Now Anwen must find Dimitri’s troupe and take back her family’s greatest treasure–the changeling stone.
The first place to search for Dimitri is in Lauramore, where the largest marriage tournament in over a decade is drawing in hundreds of traveling performers. While posing as a tambourine girl, Anwen meets Galinor, a melancholy prince who is having a rough month himself. After a little cajoling, Anwen convinces the prince to help her retrieve the changeling stone.
Joined by a ragtag party of royals, they set out on a seemingly simple mission, but soon the pair face complications in the form of stolen horses, mischievous fairies, and a dark creature that stalks them through the forest. Despite the odds against them, the hardest task in front of Anwen may be tending Galinor’s broken pride–and trying not to fall head over heals for him. Because gypsies are certainly trouble, but handsome princes may be worse…
Shari L. Tapscott has always loved a good story. She spends her days thinking up fantasy worlds and characters, fulfilling a lifelong dream when she turned her creations into her first novel, Pippa of Lauramore.
Married with two children, a boy and girl, Tapscott and her family live in western Colorado with their two Saint Bernards, Gunther and Buttercup. In her free time, Tapscott and her family enjoy exploring the mountains of Colorado.
After years of hard work, architect Lana Summers just wants a relaxing vacation in the beach town of Kittle Falls. Instead, she suffers unexpected heart problems, and finds herself in the office of a gorgeous cardiologist—who only makes her heart work harder.
Brayden Hunter left his successful cardiology practice in Dallas to be closer to his aging parents. Focused on building a health care clinic in his hometown, he doesn’t want any distractions. However, the beautiful Lana is one he can’t seem to avoid.
As their attraction grows, they stumble upon a 160-year-old mystery. Brayden catches her adventurous spirit as they chase after answers, and he can’t help falling for her. But can he convince her to stay in the small beach town and with him?
I’m absolutely in love with the clean romance genre. This one is between a cardiologist who forms an attraction with a heart patient. Obviously, he soon decides he needs to give her file to another doctor. It’s a sweet romance mixed with a little mystery. The book takes you on a journey with them to solve the disappearance of the town’s founder 160 years ago. This is a series that is easy to fall in love with. The characters are well developed and endear themselves to you quickly. I will definitely read more by this author.

I’ve always been an avid reader and a writer. When I was a teenager, I would always be in the middle of reading at least five books. Not only could I keep up with each story line, but I also never needed a bookmark! These days, I’m lucky to remember what I went for into the kitchen.
There’s more to me than writing and reading. I’m the mom of two wonderful and adorable boys that I educate from home. I enjoy making jewelry and being active outside. I also enjoy watching shows that are similar to what I write: Supernatural, Pretty Little Liars, Lost Girl, Once Upon a Time, Vampire Diaries, and more.
Here’s a new Christian romance from Sarah Monzon, The Isaac Project.
Becky Sawyer’s life unravels in a single day. Not only does she catch her boyfriend, the man she hoped to marry, lip-locked with another woman, she also receives the gut-wrenching news that her grandfather, the man who raised her, is dying. His last wish? To see her happily married. Heartbroken, Becky seeks inspiration in the pages of the Holy Scriptures. And finds it in the story of Isaac and Rebekah.
If love couldn’t keep his parents together, Luke Masterson wonders what will make a marriage last. He decides to steer clear of all women—especially crazy ones like Becky Sawyer, who employs a friend to find her a husband. But when he feels the dogged promptings of the Holy Spirit to move across the country and marry a complete stranger, it seems love has little to do with it anyway.
With commitment their only foundation, and love constantly thwarted, can an arranged marriage find happiness in the twenty-first century?
