Book Launch! FORBIDDEN By Feather Stone

fullsizeoutput_c03

 

Forbidden by Feather Stone is a romantic suspense book that I consider simply excellent. It conquers you. I opened the book and started reading.  By the time, I had reached the last sentence on the first page, my heart was saying, ‘this is a winner.’ You hear and feel the culture of the Middle East. My attention, captured, my curiosity grew.  I forgot whatever I had planned to do and found myself walking deeper and deeper into the world Feather Stone had painted.

 

Her main protagonists had me sitting on the edge. I say, protagonists, because I saw Eliza MacKay and Captain Sharif both as main characters caught up in an intrigue that could take both of their lives.

 

Eliza MacKay, the paramedic, is the PTSD woman suffering from immeasurable loss and Captain Sharif, the devout Muslim who tries to keep them both alive. Both commit repeated centripetal actions which make them suspicious of each other before they realize only trust can save them both.

 

Forbidden is not one of those sloppy, soapy, unrealistic romantic suspense books that use bang, bang, boom in the bed to cover up for a weakly developed structure or plot. No, Forbidden is well-structured. I didn’t find any character situations that were unresolved. Think, Daphne Du Maurier, and you will see the same qualities in Stone’s Forbidden.

 

A writer’s ability to craft a story determines whether the reader will enter the writer’s world, and Feather Stone shows how well she masters her craft. She drew me in. She has woven together suspense and romance and has presented us with a well-written, well-structured and well-crafted story.  Forbidden will keep you on edge until the last sentence in the epilogue.

Congratulations Ms. Feather Stone on an outstanding novel that kept my mind engaged. I enjoyed every reading minute. All the best for the future.

Today on CSReview, author Eric Thomasma is sharing his love for science fiction, and being part of a wonderful world called children’s literature.

CS: Welcome to CSReview, Eric. Let’s start with something I ask every author of the genre – why do you write sci-fi?

fw-profile-imageEric Thomasma: As a young boy I was captivated by those now iconic words, “Space, the final frontier…” I was fascinated by the concept of faster-than-light space travel and the possibilities of life on other planets and the contrast/comparison with our own societies. I remember watching the moon landings and the early development of NASA and looked forward to the days of being able to be a passenger on a flight to Alpha Centauri or other seemingly unreachable destinations. In time I came to realize that the reality of our world politics would keep us from achieving such goals within my lifetime, so…

Cover Reveal! ABDUCTED LIFE BY PATRICIA JOSEPHINE

To all of my readers, here is an engaging book you don’t want to miss reading by Patricia Josephine. It is coming out soon, and I will keep you posted.

S

Blurb

Savannah Janowitz’s perfect life was destroyed the night she and her boyfriend vanished without a trace. When she reappears a year later––alone––she’s a shell of her former self. Robbed of her popularity and her boyfriend, she has no memory of what happened to her. Savannah struggles to move forward as strange, new abilities manifest.

Evan Sullivan never gave extra-terrestrials much thought until the night he and Savannah were abducted. While Savannah’s memory was wiped clean, he remembers every horrific detail. Constantly reminded of the experiments that made him less than human, Evan hides in the shadows and watches Savannah rebuild her life without him.

But neither can let the other go. When their paths cross, Savannah and Evan finally see a glimmer of their old lives return. As they face what happened to them, they soon discover they aren’t safe. There’s more to fear than what’s hiding in the stars.

From the Pen of Mae Clair

December is approaching, and with it, the release of book 2 in my Point Pleasant saga,  A Cold Tomorrow. In anticipation of the December 20th release, Kensington Publishing is running a Goodreads giveaway. This is your chance to win a hard copy of the book while helping a hard-working author out in the process.

Er…that would be me, folks. 🙂

GR giveaways do wonders for getting books noticed with increased exposure, so I hope you’ll take a moment to hop over and enter. It will be a huge help to me, so please accept my gratitude in advance.

I’m currently busily working on book 3 of the series, but I have a special fondness for book 2. I’ve heard many writers find the middle book the most difficult to write. I didn’t encounter that problem, but it could be due to my fondness for the subject matter—UFOs, Men in Black, and, of course, the Mothman. What…

Rave Reviews By Nonnie Jules

Hello and welcome to “WHO’S ON THE SHELF?” with yours truly, Nonnie Jules!  Since we are a book club, we had to offer something that included a book shelf.  A lot of interviews merely cover an author’s work or an individual’s career stories.  Here on this “SHELF,”  we get down and dirty and ask the questions no other interviewer dare ask.  We ask the questions that you want to open up a book and find the answers to on your favorite authors and fellow book club members, but no one has dared to cover them.  WE get personal!  Because when you sit on the RRBC “SHELF,” YOU are an open book!

Today I have with me on the “SHELF,” our Current “SPOTLIGHT”Author, A. M. MANAY!

AM:  So comfy. It’s the fluffiest…
