Where Souls Embrace (Jasmine Cottage Book 4)

by Maureen Driscoll

Genre: Historical Romance/Victorian/Gothic

3.99 at time of posting! Kindle Unlimited!

From the author of the Kellington and Emerson Regency romances, comes the fourth book in the Jasmine Cottage series set in the early Victorian era.

Lily Winslow has had a difficult time making ends meet since the death of her parents a few years earlier. She has sought work as a companion, but it has been difficult to find a position with a ten-year-old brother in tow. She finally finds a job in a lovely home, but her employer keeps risking his life in pursuit of conspirators who wish to kill the queen.

Oliver Wadsworth has been a spymaster for well over a decade. Known for being calm under pressure, his entire life is upended when Lily Winslow moves into his home to care for his grandmother. As he tries to protect his family in a race to find the conspirators in a deadly assassination ring, he realizes he has a lot to live for.

WHERE SOULS EMBRACE is the story of finding love and blending a family. It’s very little history with a fair amount of graphic language of a sexual nature. It’s also a great deal of fun.

Life, death, and rebirth, Isis’s and Osiris’s future hinges on all three.

A century ago, the Dragon Kingdom of Nebty was lost to darkness. Invaded by demon hordes hellbent on stealing two powerful scepters, the Demon King claimed the preternatural realm as his own. To survive, the dragons fled their beloved home and sought refuge in the human realm.

Having lived most of their lives in human form, Queen Isis and Rock Dragon Osiris, mere children during the Great Exodus, find themselves clinging to their culture and the ties that bind what’s left of Dragon-kind. Safe and assured that they are free from the threat of demons, their love flourishes. Yet, on one horrific night, their lives are shattered by tragedy and betrayal. They learn that no realm is beyond the brutal reach of the Demon King.

Scores must be settled.
Love must be remembered.
And a lost nation must be reclaimed.

“An uplifting family saga . . . [Marianne] Fredriksson provides a satisfyingly complex . . . chronicle of women and the burdens imposed by their family history, their gender and themselves. . . . Its message of reconciliation is transcendent.”—People

“Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen: A Novel” by Susan Gregg Gilmore

Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen: A Novel

by Susan Gregg Gilmore

Genre: Genre Fiction/Coming of Age/Small Town & Rural

1.99 at time of posting!

Sometimes you have to return to the place where you began, to arrive at the place where you belong.

It’s the early 1970s. The town of Ringgold, Georgia, has a population of 1,923, one traffic light, one Dairy Queen, and one Catherine Grace Cline. The daughter of Ringgold’s third-generation Baptist preacher, Catherine Grace is quick-witted, more than a little stubborn, and dying to escape her small-town life.

Every Saturday afternoon, she sits at the Dairy Queen, eating Dilly Bars and plotting her getaway to Atlanta. And when, with the help of a family friend, the dream becomes a reality, she immediately packs her bags, leaving her family and the boy she loves to claim the life she’s always imagined. But before things have even begun to get off the ground in Atlanta, tragedy brings Catherine Grace back home. As a series of extraordinary events alter her perspective–and sweeping changes come to Ringgold itself–Catherine Grace begins to wonder if her place in the world may actually be, against all odds, right where she began.

Intelligent, charming, and utterly readable, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen marks the debut of a talented new literary voice.

“The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers (and Their Muses): A Novel” by Terri-Lynne DeFino

Bar Harbor cover

The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers (and Their Muses): A Novel

by Terri-Lynne DeFino

Genre: Women’s Fiction/Contemporary/Gothic

10.99 at time of posting!

A whimsical, moving novel about a retirement home for literary legends who spar, conjure up new stories, and almost magically change the lives of the people around them.

Alfonse Carducci was a literary giant who lived his life to excess—lovers, alcohol, parties, and literary rivalries. But now he’s come to the Bar Harbor Home for the Elderly to spend the remainder of his days among kindred spirits: the publishing industry’s nearly gone but never forgotten greats. Only now, at the end of his life, does he comprehend the price of appeasing every desire, and the consequences of forsaking love to pursue greatness. For Alfonse has an unshakeable case of writer’s block that distresses him much more than his precarious health.

Set on the water in one of New England’s most beautiful locales, the Bar Harbor Home was established specifically for elderly writers needing a place to live out their golden years—or final days—in understated luxury and surrounded by congenial literary company. A faithful staff of nurses and orderlies surround the writers, and are drawn into their orbit, as they are forced to reckon with their own life stories. Among them are Cecibel Bringer, a young woman who knows first-hand the cost of chasing excess. A terrible accident destroyed her face and her sister in a split-second decision that Cecibel can never forgive, though she has tried to forget. Living quietly as an orderly, refusing to risk again the cost of love, Cecibel never anticipated the impact of meeting her favorite writer, Alfonse Carducci—or the effect he would have on her existence. In Cecibel, Alfonse finds a muse who returns him to the passion he thought he lost. As the words flow from him, weaving a tale taken up by the other residents of the Pen, Cecibel is reawakened to the idea of love and forgiveness.

As the edges between story and reality blur, a world within a world is created. It’s a place where the old are made young, the damaged are made whole, and anything is possible….
