Win a $10 GC: Dance with Destiny by Kathleen Ann Gallagher


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Kathleen Ann Gallagher will be awarding a $10 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

Career-minded journalist, Savannah Mason aspires to take the anchor seat at the New York City news station where she works. But her father has other plans. He insists his daughter study medicine so she can take over his surgical practice. Why can’t he understand being a newscaster is all she’s ever wanted?

When cardiac surgeon Dr. Rob Sinclair lands on the New York Times Bestsellers List, his agent tells him he needs a promo spot for his upcoming book release. Suddenly, what little time he had for his two children dwindles even more. He swears he can do it all, promising himself he’ll find a way to give his kids the attention they need.

When fate selects Savannah to conduct the prime-time interview with the renowned surgeon, sparks fly. Drawn to the hot doctor, she embarks on a path toward love with a man who seems all wrong for her. And though she questions every step they take, their relationship leads her to blazing passion, honesty, and forgiveness.

However, before she can fully accept his love, she must face the unresolved issues in her life as well as confess a secret from her past that she fears he’ll never accept. Will Savannah and Rob’s connection be strong enough to heal the scars of their past and grant them another chance at love?

Enjoy an Excerpt:

“Sit down and make yourself comfortable. Do you prefer regular or decaf or how about organic green tea?”

“Tea sounds good to me. Green tea carries health benefits, too.”

“I won’t be long.” She chuckled at his cute medical reference. A fresh brewed tea took a few minutes in the new system she’d purchased at a specialty shop. A bag of oatmeal cookies made with all-natural ingredients came in handy, and she reached for them along with the cups. When the tea was done, she put a few cookies on the tray and carried it to the living room. The last thing she’d expected was to play hostess, but she found it fun.

“Here you go.” She placed it on the coffee table.

Rob patted the spot next to him. “It’s time to relax. You’ve had a tiring day.” He took a few sips of tea and set the mug on a coaster.

His doting words reminded her of the typical thing a doctor would say, but his caring nature appealed to her. With Rob sitting so close, her hands shook. They exchanged playful glances. Rob stood and went to the sliding glass doors. “You have a great view from here.”

She got up and moved toward him. Her chest tightened with each step. As she approached him and admired his tall stature, it dawned on her he could be a candidate for People’s sexiest man alive. Control yourself.

“I’m happy here,” she admitted. “I love it when the morning light shines on the water and it mimics crystal.”

Rob moved closer to her. His gaze, fixed on her, sent shivers from head to toe. Afraid of what might happen next, she turned away. An electric energy surged between them. Rob reached for her and pulled her firmly up against his chest.

“You’re an amazing woman, Savannah.”

His lips met hers, and he cradled her head in his hands as if she was a precious jewel. It all happened so quickly, she didn’t have time to react. The warmth of his touch sent waves of heat down to her stomach and in between her legs as the world stood still. When Rob’s hands moved across her back, it took her to a level of arousal she never expected. She found herself spellbound by the feel of his rock-hard body. All of the emotions she’d kept inside emerged when Rob held her tight. When they finally parted, she stood frozen in shock with her heart pounding and her ears ringing.

His expression made him appear as if he’d broken the law, with his mouth open and eyes practically popping out of his head. He quickly took a step aside. “I don’t know what to say. I-I’m, so sorry for my rude behavior.”

“You weren’t rude. I didn’t stop you.”

“I don’t know what got into me. You’re an amazing woman, and I find you terribly attractive.” He stared deep into her eyes.

“Thank you.” She turned away, still uneasy, but flattered.

“I’d like to take you on a real date. Would that be possible? Is it in contradiction of ethics to date someone you’re working with?”

“There’s no rule for dating a guest on the show. I make my own rules.” Surprised by her words, she held her arms close to her body and rubbed them.

“That’s what I like about you. You’re not afraid of taking a risk. I could tell from the moment I met you, you were a strong, independent woman.”

Unanswered questions twirled around in her head. Making a date with a doctor and one with a family, no less, is crazy. She was sure she should resist, but her body told her something completely different.

win a $10 GC: The Forgiveness Solution by Rev. Misty Tyme


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Rev. Misty Tyme will be awarding a $10 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

All major religions and societies agree forgiveness is a good idea. But what they haven’t taught us is how to forgive. The Forgiveness Solution gives you the how in a proven step by step formula that brings relief from the hurt and puts you on the road to living a happy, healthy life.

Rev. Misty teaches you how to shift your perspective and adjust your expectations of people and situations, so you can move past the pain of un-forgiveness. Rev. Misty draws upon her intensely personal experiences of facing deep sadness, anger, and grief with the power of forgiveness. She meets you where you are and helps you walk through your forgiveness journey.

Enjoy an Excerpt:

I am going to go out on a limb here; you picked up this book because you want to work on forgiveness. Congratulations on being a human with real issues, like the rest of us.

Forgiveness can be very hard. The ugly feelings of un-forgiveness come in all types of situations and relationships. They can range from small misunderstandings to threatening and abusive behaviors. It may be psychological, physical, sexual, or financial. Whatever your situation is, you want to get to a solution.

As the title suggests, this is a book about forgiveness. Not just information on what forgiveness is, but the how to forgive. Every culture faces the challenge of dealing with forgiveness. All major religions and societies agree forgiveness is a good idea, but both have left out the how. Rev. Misty’s Forgiveness Algorithm™ (Forgiveness Algorithm) gives you the how and puts it into a step-by-step formula.

The Forgiveness Algorithm came out of my own forgiveness journey. I will share not only my story but also other life-changing forgiveness stories. Laughter opens your heart when so often sadness can slam it tightly shut. I hope to touch your heart and make you smile.

About the Author:

Win a $10 GC: The Lawman's Apache Moon by Debra Holt


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. One randomly drawn commenter will win a $10 Amazon/BN GC. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

“No more detours!” That was the promise Angelina Lord made to herself when she accepted a ride from a wedding in Texas, with the best man to her destination in Santa Fe, New Mexico. What could possibly go wrong?

Angelina is focused on one thing–opening a fashion boutique in Santa Fe. What she really doesn’t need is one full-of-himself lawman with his aggravating air of superiority and soul-searing eyes…not to mention heart-stopping kisses…coming to her rescue. If she lets him get too close to the truth, he could bring down the wall she erected around her well-ordered life and her heart.

United States Marshal Jace Blackhawke holds family and traditions as the center of his life. He isn’t part of Angie’s world and she certainly isn’t part of his. Will their differences prove to be too insurmountable in the face of the truth that will not stay silent?


Enjoy an Excerpt

At first, Clay remained silent. When Jace was about to prompt him again, he finally began to open up. “A long time ago, I thought I did the right thing. It hurt like hell to do it. Then I did something else that seemed to be the honorable thing. And that went bad, too. I paid for it all for twelve long years. Now, Kaitlyn comes back here because her grandmother needed to see her. I thought I was beyond all the feelings, all the memories and the pain from a dozen years ago. But turns out, I am still the world’s biggest fool. I put my heart out there once again. But I should have known it was too late.” He’d probably left out the more personal details, but what he told Jace was enough to have him shaking his head when Clay finally finished with his departure from the ranch that morning and his arrival at Lou’s Bar.

About the Author:
