Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 18th November 2014

A story of friendship, loss, and the human heart’s enduring capacity for love…

After the death of her husband in Afghanistan, Kate Hemingway’s world collapses around her. Her free time is spent with a charity for teenage girls, helping them mend their broken lives – which is ironic, since her own life is fractured beyond repair.

Reserved, upper-class journalist Paul Farrell is everything Kate and her teenage charges aren’t. But when Paul agrees to help Kate with her charity, he makes a stunning revelation that changes everything, and leaves Kate torn.

Can she risk her son’s happiness as well as her own?

Cover Reveal: Fluence by Stephen Oram

FLUENCE 

Ten thousand minutes and counting 

By Stephen Oram 

 Fluence Cover Reveal_300dpi

Genre: Dystopian  

Published by Silverwood Books 

Amber is young and ambitious. Martin is burnt out by years of struggling. She cheats to get what she wants while he barely clings on to what he has. It’s the week before the annual Pay Day when strata positions are decided by the controlling corporations. The social media feed is frenetic with people trying to boost their influence rating while those above the strata and those who’ve opted out pursue their own manipulative goals.

Fluence is a story of aspiration and desperation and of power seen and unseen. It’s a story of control and consequence. It’s the story of the extremes to which Amber and Martin are prepared to go in these last ten thousand minutes before Pay Day.

ABOUT STEPHEN ORAM

Stephen-Oram3Like each and every one of us, my perspective of the world has been affected by many people and experiences: as a teenager I was heavily influenced by the ethos of punk; in my early twenties I embraced the squatter scene and then joined a religious cult, briefly; I did some computer stuff in what became London’s silicon roundabout; and I’m now a civil servant with a gentle attraction to anarchism. I really enjoy taking a sideways look at our world and thinking, “what if,” and then writing about it through speculative fiction.

Mishaps in Millrise – Book 1

Romantic Comedy

Published 10th May 2015

Mishaps in Millrise – a four-(novella)-part romantic spin-off from Mishaps and Mistletoe

If you’re new to the town of , then come and meet the residents. If you fell in love with Phoebe and Jack last Christmas in Mishaps and Mistletoe, then you’ve just been invited to the best reunion ever…

Little Acts of Love: Mishaps in Millrise Part 1

Almost five months have passed since Phoebe and Jack first met in the grotto of a drunken Santa at Hendry’s toy store in Millrise. Since then, Jack and his adorable daughter, Maria, have turned Phoebe’s life around. As she and Jack get closer, Phoebe decides it’s time to put her stagnating career back on track too, which means going for a big promotion at work.

But nothing is ever simple in the strange little world of Hendry’s, and Phoebe is soon wishing she’d stayed on the tills. At home, things aren’t much better as the couple brace themselves to meet their respective in-laws. It’s clear from the start that making friends and influencing people has never been harder. And to make it worse, Phoebe must compete for the affection of Jack’s parents with the perfect girlfriend and mother – who’s been dead for five years…

My thoughts

I really enjoyed this fun first part, It was fun and lighthearted but at the same time it keeps you on your toes by wanting to read more. I love Midnight, she feels like she is going to be Phoebe’s sidekick! Phoebe, I do like her but I can see her insecurities shining through already. With her current relationship with Jack, with her flirty boss Mr Hendry and her new position in Marketing.

It has kept me wanting more for now and I am dead curious to know what will happen next!

Review & Giveaway: Castaway in the Carribean by Janice Horton

Castaway in the Caribbean

More fun than you’ll find in any travel brochure…

Castaway in the Caribbean sm jpeg

Vacationing on the beautiful Caribbean island of Antigua, Janey Sinclair is persuaded by her magazine editor boss to do a quick island hop in order to supervise an impromptu photo-shoot for the front cover. With no flights immediately available, Janey is directed to the harbour.

Captain Travis Mathews hates tourists, although he’s not above making a bit of money off a prissy and sharp tongued young British girl when she’s desperate to get to the neighbouring island of Tortola.

After striking a deal, they set off together in Travis’s weather-beaten old boat. When the vessel comes to a sudden full stop in the sea, the mismatched pair end up as castaways on an uninhabited island.

In this fast moving romantic adventure about a vacation that turns into a tropical nightmare there’s more fun than you’ll find in any travel brochure.

My Thoughts

Awesome little ‘Hide-away-from-rest-of-the-world’ book! I will pick this one up many times in the future for a little getaway from reality.

I absolutely loved and adored this book, it took me away right when I needed it the most into the blue waters of the Carribean with all the yummy ingredients there as well. Sun, Sea, Cocktails, adventure, danger and a very wrong engagement.

Why a very wrong engagement? It is because I thought from the very beginning that Janey and Mark should not be together, Mark wants a trophy wife and Janey tried her best to be one, but there is more in her. A fire and a spirit…. And I was glad that we are able to see that side from her throughout this book.
Mark doesn’t like Janey working for her ‘silly’ magazine and when Janey needs to go another island for a photoshoot that almost goes wrong she ends up on a boat with Captain Travis Matthews. Travis is one serious weird, funny and hot bloke! Travis reassures her she will be where she needs to be and in the middle the boat stops working…. BUT the adventures for these two begin!
They run into pirates, old tales treasures and need to find a way to survive. For Travis it means to be more open and see Janey for who she really is and for Janey it means find her innerself and be the one person she knows she is.

All in all I absolutely loved this book and I will definitely read this more often as it is a perfect escapism for me.

Message from the Author

I was incredibly fortunate to spend the summer of 2014 in the Caribbean, writing and researching this novel. I found it challenging only in the respect of being continually distracted from the manuscript by the tropical sunshine, the white sand beaches, the warm aquamarine sea, rum cocktails, and the fabulous social scene on offer. Many of these distractions are well documented on my website, blog and Facebook page, if you are interested in reading the details and seeing the photos!

For the purposes of proper research for Castaway in the Caribbean, I travelled to and explored many Caribbean islands and, despite my tendency for sea sickness, I also spent a lot of time in boats. I even got to sail around Tortola, the larger of the British Virgin Islands, in a restored schooner that had been used in the filming of the original Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

The Virgin Islands inspired me with the modern day setting for Castaway in the Caribbean because, of this chain of around 90 small islands, islets, cays and rocks in the Caribbean Sea, many are uninhabited.

I eventually settled down to write this romantic adventure story on the Caribbean island of Utila, the smaller of the Bay Islands, just off the coast of Honduras. Likened to the Key West of long ago, Utila is a quaint, unspoilt and laid-back little island. Sitting on the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere, it is also a paradise for scuba diving, which is exactly was what my husband was doing every day while I was busy writing this story.

Research is a valuable tool for a writer, so I do hope all the fun and adventure I had in the Caribbean has found its way into the pages of Castaway in the Caribbean.

Review & Giveaway: Cape Cod Kisses by Melissa Foster and Bella Andre

Welcome at my review for Cape Cod Kisses by Bella Andre and Melissa Foster, go check it out below and I hope you fall in love with it just as much as I did. ^_^

CAPE COD KISSES
Love on Rockwell Island, Book One

When Quinn Rockwell left Rockwell Island a decade ago to build a shipping empire, he never thought he’d return to live on Cape Cod Bay—that is, until his grandfather summons Quinn and his four siblings to take over the prestigious Rockwell Resort. Quinn is already working fifteen-hour days, and the last thing he has time for is his grandfather’s demands. But on his first night back, when Quinn finds a gorgeous and carefree woman skinny-dipping in his favorite cove, he’s tempted to ignore his work for a while…and focus on her instead.

As a free spirit who follows her heart and her dreams, Shelley Walters is not the kind of girl to wait around for Mr. Right, so she heads to Rockwell Island for the honeymoon of her dreams—a solo honeymoon. Ready for a week of sun and fun, she never expected to meet a man like Quinn Rockwell.

Wealthy and intensely driven, Quinn is everything Shelley swore she didn’t want. Refreshingly spontaneous and a true romantic, Shelley is everything Quinn never knew he needed. Drawn together despite their differences, during a week of sizzling-hot passion and deep conversations, they fall head over heels for each other. But when their perfect week on the island is over, will their love survive in the real world?
