Title: Jenn’s Wolf
Series: Chestnut Rock Shifters, Book 1
Author: Jane Wakely
Genre: Paranormal/Shifter Romance

Blurb:
Jenn is used to being overlooked by men. She’s short, slim, shy and her past keeps her guarded against others—especially men. It also gets her labeled as having a “good personality.” When she sees Matt for the first time, she realizes he’s the first man she’s willing to take a chance on.

Matt is a wolf shifter worried that he’ll never find his mate. Without a mate, a shifter’s life is incredibly drawn-out and lonely. Willing to try anything, he agrees to a blind date with Jenn and is stunned to find out she’s the one.

A misunderstanding interrupts their first night together and leaves them both miserable. After determining she may have overreacted, Jenn apologizes and they agree to start over. When Matt tells her about his wolf, she has to decide whether to trust her heart or run from the only man she’s ever wanted.

What Readers are saying

As a big fan of Paranormal stories, I love discovering the work of authors who know exactly what us readers want. And I was not disappointed with this one. Not too short and not too long. Just the perfect length for my morning commute.
I will be looking for more books from Me Wakely! 🙂

Jenn’s Wolf packs quite a punch. There is a whole world stuffed into one package. The characters are well developed and provide the reader a foundation for the series of books to come. The emotions are vivid. The love between Jenn and her wolf is wonderful. I look forward to future installments of the Chestnut Rock Shifters Series.

Meet Rebel Author, Lorelie Rozzano

I’d like to introduce my fellow Rebel Author, Lorelie Rozzano

Lorelie Rozzano is a recovering addict. She is also a mother, wife, grandmother, foster parent, author, small business owner, sister, aunt, daughter and friend.
For Rozzano, a phone call to her parents when she had reached her lowest point, out of work, money and friends due to her addictions, turned things around and brought her to treatment. She has now been living clean and sober for 16 years.
And it is this success and desire to share her knowledge and the possibility of help to others that led to the creation of her first book Jagged Little Edges, and then her second, Jagged Little Lies, for she has now found what she needed to soften those edges that were destroying her life.
“The relief I had in becoming well was actually what I had been looking for in drugs and alcohol,” Rozzano explains. It was in treatment that she discovered her strong inner core and learned how to examine her life and behaviors in a brutally honest fashion and to get people thinking and talking about addiction and examining the role it plays in their lives.
“My greatest love was addiction,” she recalls. “It was no longer people or life.”
But once she was ready to face the terror that treatment seemed to hold, her life turned around as does that of her heroine Lyndsey. She found her happily ever after. It had been there all along. She’d just never been taught where to look for it.
And perhaps for someone reading the bleak, painful truths in the Jagged series, Jagged Little Edges, Jagged Little Lies, or on her blog, http://www.jaggedlittleedges.com there will come a moment of clarity and self-awareness that can help that person also get ready to change. “After all, Rozzano states, if I can change, anyone can.”

Blurb:Jagged Little Edges. That’s how it had felt for her as long as she could remember. Like cuts, coming first in words as they tore little pieces of her innocence, trust and self worth, evolving into the physical form with a smack to the head, a cuff to the ear and at times, welts and bruises on her back side. By far the greatest damage of all was what couldn’t be seen. A soul torn asunder, left with an open wound, a vast emptiness and a hunger that screamed to be fed. Lyndsey wanted nothing more than to be on her own. Problem was that’s what she’d been doing her entire life. She didn’t trust others and always held a piece of herself back. Lyndsey knew something was missing and she was determined to find it. Not comfortable in her own skin and trying to fill the vast emptiness, she stood on the edge. Needing to belong to somebody, Lyndsey discovers love, the kind of love that’s sick and leaves her needing more. She’ll do anything for him and does. Lyndsey learns that love hurts, but still, she searches for her happy ending. Not able to find what she’s looking for in people, places or things, Lyndsey descends into spiral of hopelessness. This story follows a ten year journey on the need for love and leads readers through the depths of despair and addiction. It will move and inspire. It will leave readers on the edge of their seat wanting more…

What Reader’s are saying:

Lorelie this first book of yours was so amazingly good. I couldn’t put it down. Every morning once my eyes opened all I could think was read. If I didn’t have to work i would have finished it sooner but I finished it. I could relate to all the characters in a way but especially lyndsey. I hope others in recovery have the opportunity to read your books as this one has helped me. There were parts that I went ahha to and a light bulb in my own head went off and I know your book could help others. I can’t wait to read your second book. This one your first is definatly without a doubt five stars. You’re an amazing author! Please keep writing because I will keep reading for sure!!

I am not an avid reader but found this book hard to put down. The author writes in such a way that you feel connected to the girl in the story and it leaves you wanting more. You feel like you are going on the journey with her. I can only hope there is more to come. A truly awesome read.

Blurb:Susan’s life was beyond broken, it was over. There was nothing left but a hollowed out empty spot she used to call her family. Dick, her husband, left and her beloved son Declan was in jail. All she’d ever wanted was to have a happy family. What happened? Where did she go wrong? Her days were spent consumed in misery, wondering. Restless in spirit, bitter and resentful, the ache became unbearable. Her only relief came in the form of a tiny little tablet. Miranda met the love of her life. Declan. He was gorgeous, sweet, and charming. His smile lit up the room and stole her heart. He was the best thing to ever happen to her. Trouble was – he was also the worst. Without him she was halved, with him, she might end up in jail. On the verge of bankruptcy and being fired, Miranda wonders if she’ll ever be able to tell the truth again. Declan stared up at the ceiling thinking. He needed more dope and soon. The prison bars he was trapped behind closed with a final clang. The sound reverberated through his jaw and down his back. It echoed down the miles of endless hallways. His bowels quivered and nausea churned. Yup, he was going to need something fast. He counted the hours trying to calculate how long before he’d be writhing on the floor. Six, at the most, but he could already feel it begin. Lyndsey, who never believed in fairy tales, pinched herself. She couldn’t have dreamed this big. Her life in recovery was more than one she’d ever dared to hope for. When you’ve been on the verge of death, and live to tell about it, life could be so very sweet. No longer hopeless or living in despair, Lyndsey makes it her life’s purpose to help others. But will they listen to her?

What Readers are saying:

Uh Oh, I’m addicted to author Lorelie Rozzano!
Jagged Little Lies kept me up late turning page after page wondering what would happen next. It is well written and the characters are real. The way Ms Rozzano weaves her characters together is amazing as she pulls you right in with them. All I can say is there better be a sequel. 🙂

I loved this book! I loved how Lyndsey was incorporated into this second book and how she shares what she has learned. I liked the family spin in this book because there are so many families out there that do not understand addiction! We all become “sick” from some where and so many people are oblivious it starts in their homes.
I liked how there were different characters however they all were going through the same thing…in the end. Great book Lorelie! Keep them coming…….

And there is so much more to be said on Amazon

I have read both these books, and highly recommend them.
Thank you for sharing with us today Lorelie. I look forward to your next book 🙂

Meet Rebel Author, Michelle Lowhorn

Today I’m honored to introduce my Fellow Rebel, Author of Lessons, Book Two in the Teachers Series Michelle Lowhorn 🙂

Lesson's Book Two-Med (1)
BLURB:
At first glance, Daisy Blue seems to be a timid flower child stuck in decades past. Dive below the surface to find that this kindergarten teacher has the determination to stand strong against her opponents for her beliefs.
Detective Dane Thompson of the Fort Worth Police Department is the ultimate ladies’ man who hasn’t met a woman worth keeping.
When Daisy finds a dead body floating in the pond on her small farm, Dane is the detective assigned to the case. From the instant these two meet, the sparks fly. Will the adversaries be able to work together to find the killer and will Dane finally meet a woman worth opening his heart?

EXCERPT:
Dane was almost finished with the chores by the time Daisy made it out to the barn. He was relieved to see she’d donned something closer to her usual clothing choice; faded blue jeans and a pale blue shirt. His eyes couldn’t help but be drawn to a slice in the back of her pants resting just slightly below her right buttocks cheek. If she bent over or moved fractionally to the left, he’d be able to glimpse her well rounded, perfectly shaped bottom. Following the fourth time he caught himself looking, Dane decided he was losing his mind. When had he sunk so low that he held his breath hoping to sneak a peek of a woman’s butt?
There was no way he’d even consider sleeping with Daisy. It was painfully obvious she didn’t have much experience with men. She wasn’t the type who could spend one night with a man. She’d expect a relationship to form. Besides, she deserved to be pampered and loved. And that was one thing Dane Thompson couldn’t do.
Reaching out to take her hand, Dane pulled Daisy toward the ATV. “Come on. Everything’s done. Let’s ride out to the pond and make sure no one has left any more surprises.” He released her hand so he could climb on and start the machine. Before she realized his intention, he wrapped his hands around her waist, lifted, and deposited her down on his lap. He gave the machine some gas and off they went.
For some reason, Daisy Blue always smelled so amazing. He didn’t think it was a perfume he smelled. It was her normal body scent. It reminded him of fresh baby powder, not that he had much experience with babies, but it’s how he imagined a baby to smell.
She’d pulled her hair up into a high ponytail that left her thin neck bare. And with the way she was seated on his lap, her delicate neck was mere inches from his mouth. He wondered if the skin at the base of her hairline was sensitive. Would she squirm if he placed angel kisses along the edge?
While he was daydreaming, the thin cut in the back of her jeans popped into his head. It wouldn’t take any effort at all to release the handlebar and follow the outline of her bottom until he reached the slit. His fingers would slip right inside…. Holy shit! Where had that come from? He seriously needed to get away from this woman and fast. So she wouldn’t realize where his thoughts were, he shifted her forward so she wouldn’t feel his arousal.

ABOUT MICHELLE:
I’ve always said that I’ve got the two best jobs in the world, mother and teacher. Now I can add a third, romance author. My husband, Randy, and I live in Texas with our two kids, Jessie & Nate. When I’m not teaching or writing, you can bet I’ve got my nose in a book. I’ve got a serious addiction to reading all genres of romance novels. Becoming an author is a dream come true.

Meet the Sharpe’s

Today it’s my honor to introduce Travis and Heather Sharpe, a unique husband and wife who share the passion for writing.
Married 12 years, these high school sweethearts, and parents of a toddler, are both published authors.
How great is that.
Heather told me it all started because Travis kept trying to give her ideas to write. So one day she told him to write them himself.
So he did!
In order to spend quality time as a family they’ve worked out a schedule where she writes deep into the night and he gets up at 4 am to write while everyone else sleeps. (I forgot to ask her how much coffee they go through.)

I don’t know about all you other authors but I must admit I’m a bit jealous of Heather. How cool would it be to share your passion for writing with someone who knows exactly what it feels like to struggle and succeed in this ever changing world of publishing.
How exciting it would be to share idea’s and have your very own live-in critique partner?
But Heather did tell me that in exchange for Travis taking up writing, she now does something she never did…she exercises. 🙂

Finding Flight
Heather M. Sharpe

Can her gift help her find an everlasting love?
Blurb: As an Enforcer for a secret society of shapeshifters, Ledger Arneau is offered a chance to retrieve his wayward brother before The Council puts out a warrant for his arrest. When the trail goes cold, he is willing to try anything to pick it up again, even if it means bringing in an outsider.

Corinne Winters is able to find any missing object, except her own, by concentrating on it. She’s always dreamed of using her skills to help locate missing people. After an embarrassing setback with the local police department, she jumps on the opportunity to use her skills to help Ledger.

Corinne finds a love she didn’t know she was looking for with Ledger, and discovers a new depth to her talent when they are together. When her new love and his brother disappear back into the secret society, Corinne must stretch her talent beyond anything she ever imagined to bring them home. Unaware of the circumstances surrounding Ledger’s disappearance, Corinne races across the country on his trail. When she finally locates the brothers, she witnesses the unbelievable, and flees in terror. In order to claim the love of her life, she must find a way to accept him and his secret.

Bio: Heather M. Sharpe lives on 6 acres in Central Kansas with her husband, perfect baby boy, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law. In case the house isn’t full enough, it also includes four noisy dogs, one cat who inspired For the love of a Sphynx, another who torments him, and a lizard. At night, all of them think they need room on the bed (except the lizard, thankfully).
Up until the birth of her son, Heather taught elementary school. Now she chases around her toddler and writes whenever he naps long enough to turn on the laptop. When not writing or chasing the baby, Heather enjoys hanging at the lake, waking up early to tear up the water on the wakeboard or wakesurf board, and making s’mores.

Make sure to check out Heather’s website and Facebook page to keep informed of all her newest projects.

Blurb:
Fueled by revenge, guided by an intense hatred for any type of elected or appointed authority, and driven by an inherent need to worship a strong male leader, Alex sets out on a killing spree that will satisfy all three of his psychological crutches. Alex seeks to avenge and free his captured leader. He planned to do this on his own, but prior to embarking on his journey he is approached by a mysterious organization that offers to finance his entire operation. The specialized weapon system that they offer him for the job proves too much to pass up.

The CIA agents who caused the downfall of his beloved anarchist cult become aware of his murderous plot, and they engage in a deadly game of cat and mouse with Alex’s ability to defy physics as a wild card. Thanks to his newfound weapon, Alex avoids capture while paralyzing his enemies with fear. Alex’s mysterious helpers employ the assistance of a local gang whose mission is to assist Alex in finding one of his targets. In so doing, the local gang, Alex, the CIA agents, and the local police find themselves mixed up in an international gang war for control of the illegal drugs and firearms market in the United States. A colossal betrayal finds Alex working on the side of law enforcement with him as a tool to help thwart the influx of foreign gangsters, and them as a tool to help Alex exact revenge on the very man he would have stopped at nothing to protect.
