Excerpt: 
“You consider going to Max behind my back being upfront?”
“Max came to me. I was interested and after crunching the numbers, researching your top notch standing on the circuit and talking with my father, thought this was a great PR opportunity for our corporation. I didn’t know you were against the idea. My experience is that as soon as someone knows what I’m worth, they want something from me.”
“And you assumed I was sticking my hand in the pot.” She stopped at the entrance to the big tent, where oceans of food were served all day. “Okay, I see where you were coming from. Pax.” She offered her hand.
She took quiet satisfaction in the fact he looked like she’d turned him on his head. Good, keep him off balance, and he couldn’t do the same to her. He took her hand, his long fingers warm and dry, just the lightest of squeezes. He’d never used his size and strength to intimidate, she realized. He was a true alpha male, for only the strongest, fastest and smartest protected the vulnerable. A weaker male, took advantage of them.

#FREEBIE Lies and Solace Love at Solace Lake Series (Book 1) By Jana Richards

 Lies and Solace Love at Solace Lake Series (Book 1) 
By Jana Richards
Lies and Solace is FREE April 27, 2018 - April 29, 2018 ONLY 
Blurb for Lies and Solace: She can’t live with one more lie. He can’t tell the truth. Harper Lindquist is convinced she’s found the answer to her financial prayers. Unless she pours cash into crumbling Solace Lake Lodge, she’ll lose her family’s legacy. Her would-be savior arrives in the middle of a Minnesota blizzard and she’s determined to prove to her reluctant, and trapped, financier the lodge is a sound investment. But Harper isn’t completely honest with him. And she has no idea the lake is hiding secrets of its own. Ethan James is a liar, but his money is very real. He isn’t convinced a broken-down inn is a smart investment opportunity. But the more he understands Harper’s dreams and desires, the more he wants to be the man to make them come true. The trauma in both their pasts means neither can fully trust the other. They must find the courage to love, to trust, and to accept, or yesterday’s sorrows will keep them apart.
Excerpt, Lies and Solace: As she stared into his dark eyes she realized how much she trusted him, and relied on him. That was something rare for her. The only people she trusted as much were her sisters. I’m in love with him. The thought blasted through her brain with the force of a tsunami. The tension of the last few weeks, the insecurity, the mistrust, the fear, slipped easily from her shoulders. For the first time, her mind was clear. She was in love with Ethan and she didn’t want to wait anymore. She wanted him. She wanted him to be her first, her last. Finding courage she didn’t know she possessed, Harper slid off the stool and walked around the island. She plucked the wine glass from his hand and set it on the counter, then placed his hand on her breast. “Make love with me, Ethan.” A fire lit in his eyes, telling her he wanted her, too. But there was a question there, a hesitation. “Are you sure?” She’d never been more sure of anything in her life. “Yes.” “Harper—” “Shhh. Let’s not talk anymore.” She placed one finger over his lips, then stood on her tiptoes and kissed him. Ethan’s reaction was lightning swift. He wrapped his arms around her and brought her close, his mouth descending on hers in a wild, warm kiss. Their tongues tangled, slid over each other. She’d missed his touch, his taste. She moaned, and in the sound she heard thirty-two years of longing. For this. For him.

About Jana Richards: 
When Jana Richards read her first romance novel, she immediately knew two things: she had to commit the stories running through her head to paper, and they had to end with a happily ever after. She also knew she’d found what she was meant to do. Since then she’s never met a romance genre she didn’t like. She writes contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and historical romance set in World War Two, in lengths ranging from short story to full length novel. Just for fun, she throws in generous helpings of humor, and the occasional dash of the paranormal. Her paranormal romantic suspense “Seeing Things” was a 2008 EPPIE finalist.
In her life away from writing, Jana is an accountant/admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to her husband Warren. She enjoys golf, yoga, movies, concerts, travel and reading, not necessarily in that order. She and her husband live in Winnipeg, Canada with their Pug/Terrier cross Lou and several unnamed goldfish. She loves to hear from readers and can be reached through her website at www.janarichards.com

Ready, Set, Listen Up! Power Up Your Work Outs with Some Romance!

Ready, Set, Listen Up!
With spring coming in fits and starts, you know it's really going to be here...soon...right? I get REALLY bored when I walk my dogs, so I always have my earbuds in and a book playing when I'm hoofing it. The time flies and so do my feet! So why not be prepared with some good audiobooks to power up your work outs? I have two award winning books that are now available in audiobooks, both narrated by the awesome Jeffery Hutchins.
The Haunting of Hotel LaBelle, Hotel LaBelle Series, Book 1
When hotel inspector, Tallulah Thompson, is called in along with her pug, Franny, to investigate renovation delays, she meets an extremely annoyed and dapper turn-of-the-century innkeeper. The only problem is he’s in limbo, neither dead nor alive, and Tallulah and the pug are the first to see him in a hundred years.

Cursed by a medicine woman, “Love ‘em and Leave ‘em Lucius” Stewart is stuck between worlds until he finds his true love and gives her his heart. When he first sees Tallulah, he doesn’t know what he’s feeling. Yet, her stunning beauty, and feisty attitude pull him in.

With the fate of Hotel LaBelle on the line, Tallulah with the help of a powerful medicine woman turns Lucius back into a flesh and blood man. She and Lucius team up to save the hotel, but Tallulah can't help but wonder if he will ever let go of his past love and learn to love again.

Available at Amazon and iTunes

Legacy of Evil, Hotel LaBelle Series, Book 2 
When a wild mustang is shot in Montana, renowned horse whisperer and telepath, Emma Horserider, is called in to calm the herd and find out what happened. Once on scene, she is almost killed by a bullet-spewing drone and calls her black-ops brother for backup.

Emma's help roars into her life covered in tattoos and riding a Harley. Remote viewer Bronco Winchester takes the assignment because he is ordered to, but he wonders what type of assistance his boss's sister needs. That is, until he sees Emma, a valiant warrior woman proud of her Crow heritage.

Posing as a married couple, Emma and Bronco go undercover to infiltrate and stop a hate group. Both are anxious enough without the growing attachment they feel for each other. When the lives of many are on the line, they are not sure if they will live or die - let alone, have a chance at love.

Love for Sale: Audiobooks by Linda Nightingale


From the time I discovered audiobooks, I loved to listen the other words writers created for me.  I was a writer but not anything serious.  Just a scribble here and there.  I even listened to books I probably wouldn’t have read and fell in love with the author’s works. There’s something about hearing the voice that makes the book really come alive.
I live in Houston though soon I’m moving to South Carolina.  Years ago, I worked at IAH (Bush International) and had a long drive from near the Galleria to the airport.  I reached into my memory and pulled out the audiobook, bought some and transformed my tedious commute into an adventure. In fact, once I was so engrossed in the book that I actually passed my exit and had to turn around.  Didn’t matter. I wasn’t late, and I had the opportunity to listen to more! Still, in the parking lot, I didn’t want to leave the car. Not wanting to go to work might have played some part in that, but I credit my total immersion in the audiobook.
I write for The Wild Rose Press, and when the publisher announced that our books were going to be offered on Audible as audiobooks, I jumped at the chance. The narrators submit a 15-minute reading of the excerpt you provide when you sign up.  After you listen, you are given the opportunity to say yay or nay. Then as the book progresses, the narrator submits segments, usually chapters, for the author to proof. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to these voice actors perform my books and would sometimes listen more than once to a submission.  Sometimes, I wished I could change things in this sentence or that phrase in the book!
The big day arrives, and the book is released in audio! You happy dance.  You listen to all your chapters again and happy dance some more. You go to sleep and hear the narrator’s voice in your dreams. I was very fortunate in my narrators.  One did a good Southern accent, and the Englishwoman who read Love For Sale and the Morgan stories was wonderful.  Her voice is perfect for the books, and she really dramatizes the books. As reviews come in, the listener grades the story, the narrator, and gives an overall star rating.  It’s tense waiting for reviews, let me tell you!
I now have three audiobooks available through Audible.  The sample links take you to the book page on my website and have a longer sample than Audible.
Her General in Gray, a ghostly tale of love.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Love For Sale – Human-like androids programmed to love.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You can find me at:
Web Site:  http://www.lindanightingale.com – Visit and look around. There’s a free continuing vampire story.

Top Ten Things to Do in Billings, Montana


 
Last summer my husband and I spent three beautiful days in Billings, the largest city in the State of Montana. I confess that when I started researching the setting for my Hotel LaBelle Series, I began to have a major book setting crush. (Shhh. Don't tell Baltimore, Maryland or Punta Gorda, Florida!) I specifically wanted to go there to see the Northern Hotel, which I used to research historic hotels from the turn of the century, and the Crow Fair, a national event for all of the Crow Nation, and many other Native American Tribes. This year is the Centennial of this major festival! One hundred years of family reunions, fry bread, bison burgers, pow-wows, drumming, dancing, rodeos and horse racing!  
As we planned our summer vacation this year, I pined to return to Billings, but we have another exciting place to go instead. More on that later (hint: it's in western Montana). In the meantime, here's my top ten list of things to do in this great city!

5.     Microbreweries http://www.visitbillings.com/brew-tour.php
If you don't have time to get to Billings, you can read my Hotel LaBelle Series to get a taste of the Big Sky Country and my Paranormal Western Romances.
