A dangerous man and an unbelievable offer—she should have run….

Starship navigator Hanna Baskira is entangled in a job contract with a hostile merchant-trader who doesn’t trust women pilot-navs. Captain West has hidden agendas. He’s also the com-mander of an elite military crew. They’re the intersystem govern-ment’s secret weapons—and the captain is the most dangerous weapon of all.

He plans on using Hanna in his espionage against an intersystem rebel network, but the captain has a thing about sharing plans…. And she has trust issues with the military.

If she wants to survive her new job, Hanna must trust the unpre-dictable captain of secrets and resist her attraction to him.

Chasing Sunrise400x600Blurb:
On the Coastal Bend of Texas, a hidden kingdom called Darkmore lies in ruins, and King Sevon Maraté is trapped. Using Sevon as a mouthpiece and a scapegoat, Lord Dominic rules from the shadows. Born of royal verkolai blood and as beautiful as he is lethal, Sevon possesses the ability to part the Veil separating his world from hundreds of others. His gift is his chance to escape, but Dominic refuses to relinquish his tool for power. Dominic forges an ambitious plan to invade the prosperous land of Priagust. Only a select few know the mythic kingdom of shifters exists. Sevon is out of options for his people’s survival, and cooperating with Dominic is his only chance.

On their foray into Priagust, Dominic’s men kidnap and interrogate a shifter named Jack. Even under torture, Jack’s loyalty to his kind never wavers. But as Jack’s knowledge about Darkmore’s king and its history unsettles Sevon, a curious bond begins to form. Despite Sevon’s mistrust, Jack is determined to tame Sevon’s wild heart and perhaps earn his freedom. As invasion looms, Sevon wonders if trusting Jack will lead him into another trap or if he should forget about chasing the sunrise and remain Dominic’s compliant prisoner.

FINAL-path-of-pins-coverPath of Pins

Everything we thought—everything they told us, every secret our supposed guardians shared—was a lie. They told me to find the Rose Queen, that stopping her would halt the catastrophe. They told me that she was trying to kill us all. They were wrong. They lied. And the truth?

The Fey are still dead. My father is still missing. And no one can be trusted.

 Now it’s up to me and my best friend Jim to save the world, find my dad, and discover what happened to Roger. First, we have to run from those trying to control us. And then?

There’s only one thing left for me to do:

Kill the demon Koschei.

Make it hurt.

My name is Kat Finnegan, and this is the part where everything burns.

Blog Tour: Conventional Love

Hello all! I’ve had the pleasure of working with this awesome author and am happy to be a part of the Pawn Takes Rook: Conventional Love Blog Tour! This is book three in the world and you’ll want to get them all! Check it out!

Pawn Takes Rook: Conventional Love Blog Tour

Hello, everyone! I’m Lex Chase and thank you for joining me on stop #5 on the Pawn Takes Rook: Conventional Love blog tour. In this final installment of the Checkmate trilogy, we bid a fond farewell to Rook and Garth. For this tour, I’m talking about the Checkmate series as a whole. I’m sharing behind the scenes goodies, inspirations, and my crazy journey for the first year as an author. And that’s not all! I’m giving out trading cards drawn by yours truly. Make sure you check them all out in the tour!

For today’s topic, is the spy vs. spy element of Checkmate. When I had written the first book, Pawn Takes Rook, the whole Checkmate super soldier program wasn’t planned up front. I knew I wanted Rook to be a part of some kind of secret program. And I admit I’m totally a sucker for characters being linked together by destiny somehow. (If you don’t believe me, check out my first novel Chasing Sunrise in Summer 2014)

So, Garth had this dead grandpa that apparently left him everything. Garth wasn’t really living in the lap of luxury, but his grandfather made sure he was cared for after he passed away. Grandpa Dawson, his alleged brilliance, the creator of the crucial Google algorithm, and just how Garth seemed to idolize him.

It was just a big blob of things that made you go hmmmm… So, since I hope we’ve passed the grace period for spoilers, Grandpa Dawson is what tied Rook and Garth together. Garth’s Grandpa, Conrad Dawson, was the mastermind behind the Checkmate program. And in the course of Pawn Takes Rook, I had just enough to go on that this rabbit hole went pretty deep. Some readers didn’t care for it, or didn’t really have enough to go on. And that’s fair. Honestly, I was still figuring it out too.

I had Rook pretty set, it was Garth that was tricky. Because Garth was raised by his grandfather. Granted, we can all agree Garth was that kid brimming with an overload of ADHD, but he had to have noticed something. Hints have been dropped along the way with Garth’s place in the world. Pixel in Pawn Takes Rook: Cashing the Reality Check has a very crucial line about the whole thing. If you know what you’re looking at, or looking for, it’s spelled out right then and there what purpose Garth serves. And that comes to fruition in Pawn Takes Rook: Conventional Love.

I’d like to be that author that said “OH I TOTALLY MEANT TO DO THAT!” but, you caught me. I had a vague idea at first. But with both Checkmate books done and out in the wilds, I had to figure out how to connect the dots. Or how the dots were going to go together. My hope in Conventional Love I made the dots connect in a satisfactory way. So when I am dead and gone, scholars can look back at my sheer foreshadowing brilliance.

Resolutions

by Teri Riggs

DEA agent Eve Taylor has had her fill of alpha males. When Resolutions’ operative and former lover, Dillon “Mac” McKenna, threatened her hard-earned independence, she ran. On a mission to gather evidence against a Colombian drug-lord, Eve discovers the drug-lord is helping terrorists plan an attack on American soil. Before she can escape with the vital information, she’s captured and comes face to face with her mortality…

As a teen, Mac watched his family fall apart after his mother died doing dangerous U.N. work. The possibility of losing Eve to a mission ignited an overwhelming need to protect her. When he forced her to choose him or her job, she walked away. Two years later, it seems all his nightmares have come true and he’s tasked with rescuing her from a Colombian prison. Mac has never stopped loving Eve, but does he dare risk his heart when he’s so terrified of losing…

On the run, Mac and Eve must learn to trust each other again in order to stay alive.

Note: Resolutions is a private black ops agency specializing in the near-impossible extractions of kidnap victims, hostages, and all forms of intelligence other agencies have failed to retrieve.

Free Read: Christmas Comes to Oddleton

If you’re looking for a read to get you into the holiday spirit, check out Christmas Comes to Oddleton. I’ve had the pleasure to work on this book, and it is a wonderful, funny read! Dulcie captures the spirit of each and every character as they perform the Christmas play… not quite as intended.

Christmas Comes to Oddleton will be FREE Oct. 12, 19, and 20.

Oddleton cover - fullsizeBlurb:

For the teacher Mrs Troyd, the pressure is on.

Christmas is coming to the little parish of Oddleton, and for Mrs Troyd Christmas means the children’s Nativity play, awaited with great anticipation (or in some cases, trepidation) by the whole congregation.

This year, however, all is not going quite as planned. Joseph is too shy to speak out loud enough to be heard. The little angels are squabbling over which way up to hold the Baby Jesus, and to top it all, Mrs Troyd’s nemesis, Arianna le Grand, has taken her children (the Angel Gabriel and the Third King) on an unexpected skiing holiday.

Who will stand in for the Angel Gabriel? Was it an unwise move for the Shepherd to have eaten three packets of Sour Squigglers and a Whistling Dayglo-pop before the play? And did donkeys wear sombreros in Ancient Palestine?

Whatever happens, this will be a Nativity the parishioners will remember for a very long time….
