Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend, Book 2







I’m
a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my
profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past. Through
my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds.
Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more
through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these worlds.

Even the Goddess doesn’t know who will Live or Die

“Think before acting,” her father always warned. But Princess Guinevere is
ruled by her heart. Her betrothal to King Arthur has not changed this.

When Guinevere and Cedwyn’s latest adventure takes a dangerous turn, they find
themselves embroiled in a life-or-death struggle as foretold by Merlyn’s
Goddess of the Stones 
Renegades—foiled in their attempt to kidnap the princess—steal the children of
Cadbury Castle to sell as slaves.

 Guinevere and Cedwyn vow to rescue the
children, but a miscalculation puts them all in more danger. The plan quickly
unravels, and Guinevere’s impassioned decisions come crashing down as Cedwyn
chooses to turn his dream of becoming a knight into reality.

Will their courage be strong enough to survive, or will one make the ultimate
sacrifice?

Snippet 3:

Fathers and Daughters:

His finger on her lips stopped her rebuttal.
“Not now. Other issues demand the attention of the knights and kings.”…
“But Father…I promised.”
“So you did, daughter mine, but kings must rule with their heads not
their hearts. This discussion is over. You are dismissed to go to your room. I
have a knight there who will make sure your rest tonight isn’t disturbed.”
Her legs refused to move. She opened her mouth, but no words came.
“Go. Now Guinevere. Before I forget you’re my own flesh and have you
flogged for the dangers you’ve brought upon us. Go!”
Guinevere ran from the room, fists clenched, tears streaming down her
face.

Release: Pure Hearts by Jeannine Allison

Title: Pure Hearts
Author: Jeannine Allison
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 22, 2017


She gave me her kidney. I gave her my heart...

Nicholas Blake learned a long time ago that nobody does anything for free. He’s felt the pain of lies and manipulations enough times to know that people only look out for themselves, and that all good deeds come with a price. So when he wakes up from a near deadly car accident and finds out a stranger is offering to donate her kidney, he’s immediately suspicious of her intentions.

What he doesn’t expect is Iris Chamberlain, a beautiful woman with a big smile and an even bigger heart, claiming she just wants to help. The more time Nick spends with Iris, the more he starts to believe in what he always thought was impossible: a pure heart.

But betrayal leaves a bitter mark. Will Nick be able to let go of his past and let Iris in? And will Iris be able to show him what it truly means to have a pure heart?







United Indie Book Blog - “This is a beautiful, raw and emotional story.”

Bad and Dirty Books - “Pure Hearts has heart, intention but most of all a story to tell. A story I'm grateful I got to experience.”

Becca (Goodreads Review) - “This book is perfection. I have nothing to say. Hurry up and read it as soon as it’s released! You don’t want to miss it out.”





Jeannine Allison is an author of contemporary and New Adult romance. After waffling between many degrees in college, she finally graduated with a BA in English Literature from Arizona State University.

She loves writing and reading -- obviously :) -- but when she's not she enjoys playing with her two dogs, obsessing over new makeup, drinking coffee, googling new tattoos, and pretty much anything else that allows her to wear yoga pants and a sweatshirt ;)

She is a big fan of being exactly who you are. Her favorite stories to write are about characters finding and loving who they are.

The Crimson Footprints Tour and Giveaway!


Crimson
Footprints
by
Shewanda Pugh
Genre:
Romantic Suspense

On
the night of her brother's murder, Deena Hammond stumbles upon Takumi
Tanaka, lost and on the wrong end of a .32. After rescuing him from
the certain fate driving through her neighborhood in a Porsche will
bring, a sweet kind of friendship begins. A balm for her
grief.





Maybe,
Deena likes to think, it happened the day her mother killed her
father. Or maybe, it was always a part of them, like DNA gone bad.
Whatever the case, Deena knows that her family would never approve,
hell, never acknowledge, her fast-growing love for Tak. And had he
never made love to her in that unraveling, soul-searching sort of
way, she could've done the same. But loves a devil that way. So,
their game begins. One where they hide what they are from everyone.
Anyone.

Tak
understands this for now. After all, Deena's career hinges on the
favor of her mentor and boss: his hard-ass of a father. And the
Hammond family is already stretched thin with grief. Yet, each step
Deena takes toward family and career brings her closer to an
acceptance she’s never had—and away from him.




Shewanda
Pugh's a tomboy who's been writing romance since an inappropriate
age. While she's been shortlisted for a few awards and snagged a
bestsellers list or two, there's nothing she enjoys more than hearing
from her readers.

another life, she earned a BA from Alabama A&M University and an
MA in Writing from Nova Southeastern University. Though a hardcore
native of Boston, MA, she now lives in Miami, FL, where she sulks in
the sunshine, guzzles coffee, and puzzles over her next novel.

Author: Laura Catherine 
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy 
Release Date: June 24, 2017 


On Ivalice, Prince Morgan has been living in the shadow of his twin brother and older sister. She will be queen one day and inherit the power of Spirit to protect their world and guard the other elements from harm. Morgan wants this power for himself and nothing will stop him from getting it, not even his family. With her dying breath, Queen Tamsin sends the elements to another world where Morgan cannot have them.
On Earth, Nix, Grace, Kendra and Phoebe are four ordinary teenage girls living normal lives where homework and boys are their biggest problems. That is until they absorb some strange glowing balls of light into their bodies and start controlling the elements.
Everything is about to change for these girls when the weight of an entire world is put on their shoulders.



The bus was old and probably in need of replacing with ripped seats and graffiti on everything including the roof. It also smelled like those tree air fresheners.
She made her way down the aisle to her favourite spot. It was about halfway down the bus, not so close to the front that you had to sit near a teacher but not so far back that you stayed away from the school bullies in the back row.
Nix slid into her favourite seat, the one graffittied in lyrics from her favourite band Chaos Destiny.
“Hello.”
Nix looked up to see the new girl staring down at her.
“Hi,” Nix replied. “You’re the new girl.”
“Phoebe Jenkins,” she said with an awkward smile.
Poor girl, Nix thought, doesn’t know anyone.
“Ah, I’m saving the seat next to me for my friend, but you should sit in front of us.”
Phoebe looked surprised at the offer and Nix wondered if other people had been less nice to her. Hopefully she hadn’t been subject to the antics of the school bully, Jasper.
“Go on, sit,” Nix encouraged with a smile.
“Thank you,” Phoebe replied and perched herself on the seat ahead of Nix.
“I shotgunned the window side,” Grace said as she pushed her way through the aisle of students still taking their seats.
Nix moved out of the way so Grace could claim her prize. Grace was always last to be called for things because her last name was West.
“What did I miss?” Grace said leaning on the back of Phoebe’s seat.
“Grace this is Phoebe,” Nix introduced.
“Ah, new girl,” Grace said with a cheesy grin. “Excellent. How are you liking Verndale?”
Phoebe sat up straight, pushing a loose strand of hair behind her ear. “It is a very beautiful town,” she replied. Her voice was soft like a gentle touch of fingers on guitar strings.
“Great. Just stick with us and you can’t go wrong.” Grace winked and leaned back in her seat.
Mr. Haynes appeared at the front of the bus, ushering people to take their seats so he could do a head count.
“Now today’s excursion—”
Mr. Haynes was cut short as a dark skinned girl with a shining curtain of black hair raced up the bus steps.
“Kendra,” Mr. Haynes said a little startled. “Where have you been? I called your name a while ago.”
“I’ve been objecting,” she said giving him a dazzling white smile.
“Objecting.” Mr Haynes nodded then did a double take. “Objecting to what?”
“I’m objecting to this excursion. I shouldn’t have to be forced into a swamp against my will.”
“I am sorry, Miss Tate, but there are other places out there besides the mall,” said Mr. Cole, the sports teacher who was accompanying Mr. Haynes on the trip.
The students giggled. Kendra pouted and looked like she was going to argue the point, but Mr. Haynes asked her to take a seat.
