USA HEA review A Lady Awakened by Cecilia Grant


new InsightBookReader('preview', '9780553593839', 'A%20Lady%20Awakened', 'Cecilia%20Grant', '0', '', 'http://www.randomhouse.com/cgi-bin/buy_landing.php?isbn=9780553593839'); Reviewed By Mandi Schreiner, USA TODAY CAPTION
Genre: Historical romance A Lady Awakened is the debut book by Cecilia Grant, and I’m in love with this author’s voice. It is hard to explain why I love her style of writing so much, but as I read I didn’t want to miss a single word. It is a similar reading experience as to when I read Joanna Bourne books. The way she creates her sentences and the way she creates such small moments that end up so powerful really captivate me. This story is different in terms of the plot and how things unfold. Martha Russell is a recent widow, and because she didn’t have any children during her marriage (her husband had no children in a… Continue

“the love affair with apps is officially over,“ This is a statement made at a recent convention that I attended virtually on Twitter — this comment was reverberated again & again . . . . Now, for some industries, and possibly the book industry, this may be the case, although, when I’m away from home with just my phone, I always go through my bookstore App to buy a book . . . maybe that will change, the way technology is constantly changing, it probably will – but for now, I’ll use my App. I don’t want to mislead anyone, I’m not an ‘App-aholic’ – I’ve friends that have the front of the phones, covered with pages and pages of various types of Apps – most of them are the free ones, but still, you… Continue

Holiday Romances from Random House – which do you choose?

Are you looking for a book to put you in the Holiday mood? This is the time of year many of us crave those stories that give us hope, and re-instill in us the beliefs and traditions of family, friends and relationships. Books where the hero is real, knowing that he will fight to the end to protect his heroine, no matter the cost. Books where the heroine is strong, understanding and a good person who is only trying to do the right thing, no matter how convoluted the outcome. Books where families stand by one another and support each other through thick or thin, no matter what the situation. The books I choose to read for Holiday, do just that – they reinstate values through wonderfully written stories, where characters have their ups and… Continue

Contemporary Native American Stories + Giveaway!

Contemporary Native Americans by Michele Stegman We are all curious about how other people live. It’s why archaeologists dig up burials, why the paparazzi follow famous people around, and it’s one of the reasons we read fiction—to get a glimpse of how other people live. In historical romances, Native Americans live a different lifestyle from other Americans. The author often gives us a picture of that lifestyle gleaned from anthropological reports, historical records, and old photographs. It is also often terrifying for the heroine of a romance book if she happens to get captured by Native Americans. There was a long-standing war between natives and incoming European-Americans, after all. The men were warriors and hunters, yet lived in communion with nature. But what about Native Americans today? When I started doing research for Mr. Right’s… Continue

Climbing Into Your Character’s Skin + Giveaway!

Climbing Into Your Character’s Skin

‘Stay in your skin’ is a phrase my shifters use in my Feral Warriors series. It means keep your claws and fangs from erupting. Stay in control. But that phrase has a slightly different meaning for me, as the writer. To me, it means keeping my characters real and true to who they are. In my case, I’m not staying in my skin so much as staying in theirs. So who are the Feral Warriors? They’re the last nine shape-shifters left in the world, each of whom shifts into a different animal—lion, hawk, wolf, jaguar, viper, etc. All are warriors, all are alpha males—big, strong, and dangerous. But each is also an individual with a distinct personality, a unique history—experiences that have formed him, wounds that have molded him. And… Continue

The Matchmaker
Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
Make me a match,
Find me a find,
catch me a catch
Matchmaker, Matchmaker
Look through your book,
And make me a perfect match
I’ve been a bookseller, a marketing guru, a publicist, an editor, a writer and more importantly always a reader. No matter what kind of hat I’ve worn in the publishing industry there has been a constant common thread. Putting the right book into the right hands – I found it a challenge to get the match just right. My reward always came in the form of the reader returning and saying – What’s next?? What else should I read? Or while I was working marketing on a larger scale, finding the right medium in which to reach the reader. Recently I read an article in which Katie… Continue

BECAUSE OF YOU by Jessica Scott
LOVESWEPT Debut
By Anne Woodall, Romance At Random Reviewer I know a little bit about learning to live again. I know about being so weak and helpless you want to die.

(Jen St. James, BECAUSE OF YOU) The best part of discovering a new author whose talents grip your attention immediately is sharing the good news with other readers. In all my years of reading military romances, there has been only one other book that moved me as much as this one did.

Embrace the Highland Warrior + Giveaway!

I’ve always been fascinated with the unexplained, but when I started writing it never occurred to me to write a paranormal story. Since I’ve always loved mysteries and romance, that’s what I wrote…romantic suspense. But almost immediately, my love of the supernatural started seeping into my writing, and I found myself in a world of Secret Warriors, Ancient Evil, and Destined Love. And I love it. I love the mystery and suspense that comes with a world that isn’t quite what it seems. The second book in my Scottish paranormal series continues with the Connor Clan. Embrace the Highland Warrior tells Cody and Shay’s story. It’s a story of love, betrayal, and making peace with the past. Here’s a blurb. Cody McBain’s family spent over two decades protecting the identity of a powerful female warrior… Continue

Things I would never do . . . +Giveaway!


Inspiration – Pamela Clare & the ITeam series

As I was combing through Facebook one night I ran across Pamela’s mention of her days heli-skiing in Colorado — as my jaw dropped in awe & respect for this awesome woman & author, I thought to myself, that is something I would NEVER do. Seriously. There are just some things, I can unequivocally say, that I will never do. You must know of a few things as well — things that you would never do — things that you’ve seen on TV, like someone bungee jumping? Driving a race car? Jumping from an airplane? There are things I read about too, in various books, romance books, that I know I would never do. I would never ride a horse bare-back; swim in the Thames; even marry… Continue

The young adult market these days + giveaway!

When I grew up, the raciest book I had read was, ‘The Catcher In The Rye.‘ Readers lists back then included stories like, ‘Gone With The Wind’, ‘Jane Austin,’ and, S.E.Hinton, ‘The Outsiders’.
The guys seemed to be primarily into, Star Wars & Dune series books. Have you noticed that Young Adult reading has changed since then? What the market offers today is different than a few years ago, in fact, taking a line from a recent PW article,‘The young adult market these days is a bit like a nephew you haven’t seen in years: transformed from a little darling into a hulking almost-grownup who is maybe, even, a little scary.’ Teen titles feature menacing creatures, forbidden romances, and apocalyptic versions of this and future Earth.

Kids today, read darker & edgier… Continue

My First Blog Post by Bobbie Baynard + Giveaway!

Hi and welcome everyone to my first blog post. Wow! I can’t believe I just typed those words. First, I would like to thank Sue Grimshaw for offering me this opportunity. Second, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Bobbie Baynard. I am @mamaboo7907 on Twitter. I am a married mom of two wonderful children.
