  EXCERPT:

How long had he been in the dungeon? How long had it been since his darkened eyes had seen anything other than his dark cell? Too long. Long ago, after his voice had broken, he had given up the screaming, which had echoed back to him from the halls of this Hell. Unheard. Now he had become like his guards, deaf to the suffering that reached his ears. He didn’t hear it at all anymore, didn’t feel the cold that ate through his bones, nor the hunger in his stomach. The rustling of the rats, the disgust at these vermin, the thirst that burned in his throat: all of this he had learned to suppress. Only the stink in his nose had eaten into him worse than the scar on his face. He had always been sensitive to smell. Since his early childhood it had been his most highly developed sense. He used to dream of becoming a perfume maker and of creating the finest scents. He twisted his mouth ironically. Look how far these senseless dreams had brought him. He had been waiting for his execution for months. The hope from the first week of the trial and the belief he could prove his innocence had died. They were as dead as he soon would hopefully be. Long was he beyond the phases of blind rage, hate of the unknown person, who he had to thank for all of this, as well as sadness, hope, and doubt. He only desired the rope that would free him from this dungeon, in which a small piece of his soul broke night after night. Thunder rumbled overhead. He only guessed at the following lightning. Not even that found a way in to illuminate his forced home. The blackness held him with an iron grip. Bored, the prisoner broke a piece off the moldy edge of his bread. The furry nose of his roommate immediately appeared through a crack. It sniffed in every direction before the small animal made its way to him, careful and alert. What irony. This rat and he now had the same status in the eye of society. Not much was left to differentiate between them. Both of their daily lives consisted of the hope for a little moldy bread. The squeaking of the cell door scared the dirty brown animal away. He didn’t react to it anymore. It was too late in the day for his guards to have remembered to bring him something to eat or to take him to the gallows. Bile wanted to rise up in his throat. Quietly he balled his bony hands into fists to try to suppress the familiar shaking. He had learned not to defend himself when they set upon him, to just close his eyes and hope that it would be over soon. On his first night in this Hell he had given up prayer, on the second night begging for mercy. However this time it was not the smell of cheap schnapps that filled his tiny room. It was as if he were suddenly standing on the deck of a ship in the eye of a storm. He could feel the powerful waves beneath him, how the ship swayed, how the rain hit him in his face and the wind tugged at his hair. Instinctively the prisoner shook his head to shoo off the bittersweet delusions his nose was giving him. Never again would he stand on the planks of a ship. The stranger stood quietly in the doorway. An icy watcher was eying the prisoner’s back. Even if he couldn’t see him, he still felt him and how the sharp look penetrated beneath his cracked skin into his deepest chasms. However, for him the eyes were not his most important means of recognizing people. Rain and sea. He tasted its scent on his tongue. Interested, his tired eyes rose to meet the visitor.

Welcome author Tina Gayle today


Please give a warm welcome to author Tina Gayle today as we talk about her latest release, Marketing Exec's Widow.

1. What started your interest in writing?
I enjoyed creating stories in my head when I was a child. Then to get me reading, my mother introduced me to romance novels. I fell in love with them and dreamed of some day writing love stories. I can’t imagine writing anything else because I’m an optimist. I love the happy ending.

2. What is your book(s) about?
I like to write story that address the issues and problems that women face, but I also like the emotion and excitement with falling in love. I work hard to blend the two in the hopes of creating a story that I enjoy and that will appeal to my readers.
3. What do you do when you’re not writing?
As much as I’d like to say I am doing fun and exciting things, I’m a normal person who cooks and cleans.  For fun, my husband and I love to travel and play golf.  We live in a beautiful country and have some awesome natural parks. We have visited most in the western states, just need to get to the east coast now.
4.What genres do you write in?
We a number of pseudonyms, I have written romances in a number of genres: action adventure, syfy, spiritual, suspense, murder/mystery, young adult, erotic romance, erotic mysteries, westerns,
5.Is there anything you would tell aspiring writers?
First, I’d ask why are they writing? If it’s to get publish, then learn everything they can about the business before they write the book, because they may find it is not what they believe it to be. Second, if they are writing for the love of writing. Then write, don’t worry about getting publish, write. The publishing part of it can always come later. Learn the craft first, and be happy with doing the best job you can at writing.
6. If you write a series do you reread your previous books before you begin the new one?
It depends on how long ago that I wrote the prior book in the serie. Most of the time, I don’t have to read the prior stories. I’ve lived my characters lives and know what they have been through. The details are what needs to be checked, like dates, scenery, names of certain places.   
7. What do readers have to look forward to in the future from you?
I had a book that I’m reworking called Tainted Rose. It is a romantic suspense about four women who live in a 55+ community in Sitwell, AL.  I am working on cleaning it up and hope to submit it to Random house. It has taken longer than I expected for it to come together but won’t give up until it’s available to readers.
8. When and where do you like to write? Are there any favourite places you like to go?
I like best to write in my office. It is a bedroom in my house where I have my desk, writing books, find inspiration, and feel at home. I normally, tried to write after lunch. That way, I get all my errands run and email taken care of, giving me the ability to focus just on my writing.
9.What has been the defining moment in your career that made you think “Yes, I am now a writer!”?
My first defining moment was when I sold my book “Pregnancy Plan” to The Wild Rose Press. It confirmed for me that I was a writer and had what it takes to be an author.
10. If a movie or TV production company chose to produce your books into a series of shows or movies, who would your ideal cast be?
This is an interesting question because my son works in live theater so I know a number of unknown actors who I’d love to see in a production of my books. My book “Summer’s Growth” is one I’d like to see Sandra Bullock and George Cloony as Mattie and Quincy. Then fill the rest of the cast with actors and actress that I know personally. Would make for an interesting adventure. Here’s to it happening some day.
Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog and I hope everyone has an awesome holiday season,
Tina Gayle



Executive Wive’s Club Series

(Contemporary romance with strong women fiction elements)

Four women...
One fatal car wreck...
Everyone's lives changed...


"Marketing Exec’s Widow”
Book 1 Blurb-

Letting go and rebuilding a life comes at a price.

Having come to terms with losing her husband, Jennifer is ready to move on, but she faces opposition from her friends, in-laws, and brother-in-la. He see himself as her future husband. None of them know of Jen’s marital problems and she is afraid of their reaction when they learn she has a date for Friday night?


Hagan Chaney is not anything like Craig. He tempts Jen into the future but is she willing to give love another chance after the heartache she faced the 1st time around?



Excerpt –
“Thank you.” Jen tilted her head and narrowed her gaze. His tall, lean form topped hers even with three-inch heels on, a welcome rarity from the men she usually met. In addition, he had strawberry-blond hair, a known weakness of hers. The reddish-gold locks danced along the collar of his black shirt, teasing her with the idea of running her hands through the thick mass. Her fingers twitched. She dropped her gaze. Tight jeans covered a round, squeezable butt. Hot awareness suddenly sizzled, stunning Jen with its power. She knotted her hands into fists and fought the unwelcome attraction.
No way, I’m his real estate agent, not his date for the evening. And it’s only been four months since...
 “Elkhorn’s main street isn’t large, but the Little League baseball field and the restaurants should attract people to the area.” Hagan’s dark brown…no, hazel, his eyes were hazel she realized abruptly when his gaze met hers. He cocked a brow. A sexy smile teased the corner of his lips. Oh, darn, the man had nailed her ogling his backside.
Heat burned her cheeks. The air between them sizzled. Goose bumps popped out on her arms. Her internal timer ticked off each day she’d gone without sex—well over a year.
His smile grew wider and visions of his mouth melting onto hers slammed home the impossibility of the situation.
Give it up, girl. It’s not happening.
She swallowed and searched the room for a distraction, some way to gain control of her raging hormones and maintain the professional image she’d strived so hard to develop the last five years. “I agree. It is in a great location.”

GENRE:  Erotic Romance
Series: Pleasure Island


Ian has wanted Olivia from the moment they first met. They shared a torrid one-night-stand in Scotland a year prior and never spoke of it again. Now they are business partners, and Ian has plans to woo Olivia back into his bed permanently.

Eric Thomas is a drummer from the superstar rock band, The Harbingers. When he meets Olivia, he knows there’s something different about her. He wants her – and not just for the night.
But when the two Doms cause a stir with their antics on Pleasure Island as they each attempt to win Olivia, they will be forced to contemplate another means of attaining their prize. Can they convince Olivia to experience the fantasy of a ménage with them? And will what happens on Pleasure Island stay that way?



Publisher’s Note: While this steamy ménage is part of the bestselling Pleasure Island series, it can be read and enjoyed on its own.

Excerpt:

One mistake. One teensy error in judgement had changed everything.

The deed that she was trying fervently to forget never should have happened in the first place. But it had. Choices had consequences, even drunken choices. And since Olivia didn’t own a time machine, nothing could change that fact. Once they’d tangled in the sheets together, their friendship evolved—and not for the better.

It didn’t matter that it had been without a doubt the hottest night of her life, or that she’d not known how hot his fires burned. Their lovemaking had scorched the very fabric of her soul. Ian was normally so staid and stoic, which made the night all the more memorable and the walls erected between them since all the more daunting.

The man infuriated her. He’d hurt her—or her heart, anyway. That had been the most unexpected thing, considering Olivia didn’t do feelings and tended to skedaddle once emotions came into play. In her life, love had been used as a weapon. The scars she bore on her soul attested to how insidious the barbs and arrows of emotions could be.

So Ian didn’t want her help. Big surprise there. The difficult man snarled at her for even offering him aid.

Silly. Stupid even of her to try and offer assistance after the past year. Their relationship could be defined as stilted, forced, and foreign, even. Like they were two strangers attempting to divine the other’s moods. Wary beasts wondering when the next loaded barb would pierce their heart.

Regret weighed her down as she ascended the stairs—holding on to the rail as the vessel dipped and swayed—into the blinding sunlight. Slipping her sunglasses into place, shielding her gaze, needing to hide the ache in her chest, she ignored the rest of the passengers as she traipsed across the boat deck. Olivia wasn’t in the mood to be social. There would be enough of that forced on her over the next two weeks, where every moment she would have to pretend she wasn’t hemorrhaging internally from wounds no one saw.

The next two weeks would make or break them.

WRITERS WRITE... WRITING PARTNERS FEUD ~ REVIEW BAI TIDE





Arm-in-arm, the literary sleuths, dash into their review of the thriller BAI TIDE by Erika Mitchell.

“Move over James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, Adrian Monk, and Maxwell Smart, there’s a new investigator in town!” Wrye pulls down his Fedora and holds up a finger gun. “Bai Tsu, a newbie, Asian/American CIA agent is out there and ready to take numbers and peel potatoes.”

“Peel potatoes,” mouthed Tattle, took a puzzled breath and let it go. “Bai, fresh from BLOOD MONEY, is twenty something, humorous and self-effacing, tough yet modest and on an undercover cushy job assignment as a gym teacher for a girl’s prep school. This mission should have been as easy as eating a snow cone on a hot day, but nooooo, it turns out that one of the girls are being targeted.  So, during the investigation, Bai unearths a devious plot that could ultimately kill millions upon millions of people.”

“Ah m’slip-and-slide reviewer, did you also realize he needs to ask for help from the very person he can’t trust? Annnnd that he will be traveling across the globe in heat and sand, cold and ice?”

“I did, I did.” Tattle nodded vigorously. “Erika also takes unusual secondary characters and weaves them in and out of the story seamlessly. Her plotline is flawless. The research is amazing. Though this is a fun read, you also learn a few things, just as Bai learns more about himself and his chosen profession. I really like this new breed of character, and Bai’s style of investigation. I am hooked!”

Ericka did a masterful job with the action sequences, especially the hand-to-hand combat. As a martial arts fan, I found the fight scenes to be accurate and enticing. And much to Tattle’s delight, there was a nice dusting of prickly romance to satisfy her ooohhh ahhhh needs.”

“Hey! I don’t ooohhh ahhh anything.” She gives Wrye a sniff then adds, “This is action laden, tension absorbing and totally entertaining. Read this book, it is a delight.”

Hope you enjoyed this month’s reviews. More to come!

Welcome Kelli A. Wilkins today

Today I’m sharing a look back at the making of my first Medallion Press release, The Viking’s Witch.

The Viking’s Witch is a traditional historical romance with paranormal elements set in Scotland in 803 A.D. The main character, Odaria, is what they called a witch back then—nowadays we’d call her a psychic and a healer. Here’s the plot summary:

The Viking’s Witch
About to be burned at the stake by her fellow villagers, Odaria does what any betrayed witch facing certain death would do. She calls down a curse. Within seconds, rampaging Norsemen raid the village, capturing everyone except her.

But her reprieve is short-lived, and Odaria lands in the clutches of the Norse leader Rothgar. Can she remain true to herself and fight her growing attraction to this domineering man, or will she fall under his influence?

After Rothgar witnesses Odaria’s powers firsthand, he strikes a bargain with her. The raven-haired beauty will use her magical abilities to help him with his quest in exchange for safe passage off the isle. But can this cunning woman be trusted, or is she using him to exact vengeance on her village?

Together they must fight bloodthirsty villagers, battle a mutinous band of Norsemen, find a missing Norse ship, and learn to trust each other…before time is up.

Interviewers and readers have asked what my inspiration was when I was writing the book, and are curious about how much research I had to do to create the unique characters and detailed setting.

Like many of my books, the idea for the story came to me out of the blue. One day, the entire opening sequences popped into my head and I knew I had to start writing. At the time, I had the basic plot (Viking warrior falls in love with Celtic witch), but I wasn’t sure about most of the details, like the character names, their backstories, and the subplot. All of that came later, along with the secondary characters, Brennan and Nordskog. (I’ll talk more about them in Part Two of this blog.)

Scotland is a beautiful place and I’ve always wanted to set a book there. (I still may write another historical set in the Highlands.) Having the story take place on the remote Orkney Islands added a sense of urgency and tension to the plot.

In a sense, Rothgar and Odaria are “trapped” on the island and are forced to deal with a pack of angry villagers and other Norsemen. The action is condensed into a few days on a very small island, so there’s really nowhere for the characters to go. They’re forced to work together in order to get off the island—and survive.

Before I wrote a word, I had to do a lot of research on where to set the story. I knew the book would take place in Scotland where the Vikings traveled in their early years of exploration, but I didn’t want it to be a populated location. Once I decided on the Orkneys, I had to pick which island to set the story. (There are 70 different islands, but today, only 20 are inhabited.)

I also had to research what life was like in that time period for Odaria and Rothgar. (What kind of clothes did they wear? What food did they eat? How did Norsemen travel so far? What were their ships like?) Odaria and Rothgar come from different backgrounds and technically would have been speaking different languages, so I had to blend their two cultures together in a way that flowed with the book.

After I got a feel for what everyday life was like for each of them, I weaved the details into the story. For example, Rothgar’s Norse background intrigues Odaria, and she is curious about their clothes, customs, food, how they travel, etc. Having Rothgar show her how he lives was a good way to introduce readers into the culture.

And of course, if you were living back in 803 with bands of Norsemen and crazy villagers, you could expect some measure of violence. Readers might think that there’s no place for violence in a romance, but I think that type of realism (when kept in check) enhances the story.

In 803, life was completely different from how we live now—especially on a remote island. People got hurt, took sick, and died. The Viking’s Witch features a violent man (Brennan) and a group of Norsemen with violent reputations, so including some violence in the story is necessary to move the plot along—while also helping the reader get deeper into the minds and lives of the characters.

I didn’t cringe when I wrote the “gritty” scenes; I was happy to include them. I like history and it drives me crazy when people in 1500 or 1870 are perfectly clean and neat, have perfect teeth, and look like they stepped out of a beauty salon. In The Viking’s Witch I included enough details to bring the story alive, yet showed how some degree of violence was necessary for Rothgar’s and Odaria’s survival.

I hope you enjoyed this “inside look” at The Viking’s Witch. I’m pleased to say that the book has received several excellent reviews and won a gold IPPY award for best romance ebook!
Here’s a mini-excerpt from The Viking's Witch:

Odaria scanned the cookroom and spotted a large table piled high with food. Brennan must have been planning a feast to celebrate her death. There would be plenty of meat and beer in the underground storage area. Men liked to eat. The Norsemen must be hungry from their long journey. Mayhap she could offer Rothgar a meal and strike a bargain with him.

“Are you hungry?” she asked, cocking her head. “I know where to find food and drink, wood for the fire, clean water, and—”

Hvat ist das plass?

She scowled at him, trying to decipher his words. A few seconds later, she understood. “This is a cookroom. Women in the village prepare meals here. See?” She waved at the iron pots, wooden pitchers, and other cookery items stacked on the shelves around the room. “They make food.”

Rothgar rolled his eyes. “Ja. Vat ist dat?” He pointed to the door behind her.

“The gathering hall. The men conduct business here. There is a room upstairs for sleeping. The larder, the food and drink, is below,” she said slowly, hoping he’d understand.

He nodded and inched closer to her. She tried to move away, but she had nowhere to go. Her back was pressed against the door.

Rothgar grinned and cupped her chin in his wide hand. Her heart fluttered. What was he doing? She stared into his eyes as he bowed his head. His rough beard grazed her cheek as his lips lightly brushed against hers.

Her entire body tingled, and the room spun and seemed to grow dim. As everything faded, she had a clear vision of wrapping her arms around Rothgar’s neck and eagerly pulling him close for a kiss. Dizzy, she pitched forward.

Rothgar caught her and clutched her to his chest. “Shh,” he soothed, running his hand through her loose hair. “I will not harm you, Odaria.”

She relaxed against his broad chest, letting him support her weight. His touch was calming, and she felt safe here, leaning against Rothgar as she would rest against a thick tree. She inhaled deep. Rothgar didn’t stink of rancid sweat like the other men. He smelled clean and salty, like the sea. The scent comforted her. She could almost fall asleep where she stood.

Rothgar curled his arms around her ribs. She didn’t protest. In spite of everything, he hadn’t harmed her and he had saved her from that horrible Norseman in the red tunic.

After a few moments, her dizzy spell passed, and she gazed at him. “You are not like the others. You are different, Rothgar.”

He smiled. “Ja, in some ways. But fear not, Odaria. I will not share you with the others. I wish to have you all to myself.” Rothgar chuckled and winked at her. “Now, show me this food.”

“Aye.” She had no choice but to obey Rothgar’s wishes—for now.

Having narrowly avoided her own arranged marriage to an unacceptable nobleman, Loretta is determined that her dear brother---a gentle, good-natured soul---should marry for love. Matching wits with Hawk may be her greatest challenge yet...until she realizes it may also be her greatest pleasure. For the young duke's irresistible charm has not only begun to crumble her stubborn resolve, it has claimed her heart in true love as well...
"A master storyteller."
