What are people saying about Rock-A-Bye Baby?

“Rock a Bye Baby has everything—a haunted protagonist, heartfelt emotion, and a twisty, thrilling plot. A scorcher of a follow-up in a promising series.”—David Ellis, NYT bestselling author of The Last Alibi

"Murphy has cleverly crafted a riveting crime thriller, with a hefty dose of white-knuckle suspense. Entertaining and enticing to the very last page."—Cheryl Kaye Tardif, bestselling author of Submerged

“Rock a Bye Baby is an exquisitely told thriller, full of surprises and terrifying moments. Murphy is a gifted storyteller who keeps the tension crackling throughout. Charlene Taylor drives the story to a very satisfying and unexpected ending.”—Kristina Stanley, bestselling author of the Stone Mountain series.

Book Tour Dates for No Entry by Gila Green ~ FREE eBook Copy!

Book Description: 
In No Entry, Canadian teenager, Yael Amar, signs on to an elephant conservation program and ends up coming face to face with violence, greed, murder, and the taste of a very real danger for all of us: elephant extinction. The story takes place in South Africa’s famous, breathtaking Kruger National Park.

Yael vows to devote herself to saving the planet from human greed and is set to learn all she can about ivory poaching when she accidentally encounters a murderous poaching ring taking place below the surface of her newfound paradise. She receives a second blow when she discovers her idol, Clara Smith, the prestigious and well-respected program director, profits from blood ivory, while preaching about the sanctity of wildlife. Yael is forced to decide on a new mission: expose this poaching ring to the police or return to the safety of her normal life—before she becomes their next victim.

On her journey she is accompanied at times by her conservative, naive boyfriend, David, and at other times by her new brash best friend, New Yorker, Nadine Kelly. She is inspired by her African guide Sipho, a poverty-stricken artist, professional park ranger, and ultimately, her partner in risking her life.

At the same time as Yael is forced to confront the ugly face of elephant slaughter, she grieves the loss of her brother, Ezra, murdered in a terrorist firebombing before the novel begins. It is this grief that gives her the strength to confront the evil men, who would empty Africa of every last elephant to fill their own pockets.

Unexpected Desires: The Serendipity Trilogy (Book #1) by Zoey Derrick - Book Review

Book Description: 

I agreed to be their surrogate; to give my friends the one thing they couldn't do on their own. The choice was easy.

What followed was not.
I fell in love with them along the way, but they can’t give me what I want most- their love.
The connection between them is undeniable.
How could I possibly come between them?
The truth is that I can’t.

Now, I’m pregnant and alone when all I’ve ever wanted is someone to love me, wholly and unconditionally.
I thought they were it, the Ones, but I was wrong.
My name is River Ashley Bennett and better plans are in store for me.
I just don’t know what they are yet.

We're broken.
Shells of the men we once were.
Our love has never been stronger, but we're missing the one thing we want above all else- a woman between us.
We gave up our dream when we were left unexpectedly by a woman in our past.
We want it back.
We didn't realize how much until she fell into our laps.

We have a chance to redeem ourselves; to feel complete in a way we never imagined.
There's only one problem.
She's pregnant with our best friend's child.

Can our desire and dreams withstand the time and trials we’ll have to endure to make her ours? Or will we be left on the outside looking in?

We want her.
We need her.
We are Keenan and Bodie Carmikael and we will stop at nothing to make her ours.
Forever.

Book Review: 


Yay! Welcome back to the writing world Zoey Derrick!! I am so happy to read up on some of my favourite characters from the past.
To get this out of the way, this is not a sweet romance, this is a BDSM (gay and bi sexual) erotica. This book is hot hot hot. It has heat but also has a great storyline. River accept being a surrogate for Caden and Aryn who are in a same sex marriage. They also live the BDSM lifestyle. I learned a bit more about BDSM (D/S) and a mmf triad relationship as it has been awhile since I have read an erotica novel. I love how Zoey Derrick can take you on a trip with each of these characters and by the end of it you are totally hooked. I felt like I was truly getting to know River and her relationships between Caden/Aryn and Bodie/Keenan - swoon. The author makes the characters very relatable, even if you do not live the same life style. I can't wait to read book two! All of the authors books have connections with each other and I remember some characters from previous books I have read in the past. I give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars!

The Suicide Season by Jeremy Gadd ~ Excerpt & Free Book Giveaway!

Excerpt from The Suicide Season by Jeremy Gadd ~ Get your FREE ebook copy below! 

Yeats motored on. He imagined the angler in the pub that night, telling his story about the huge fish that had got away, breaking his rod to do so. Yeats couldn’t be bothered to fish. He neither expected a strike nor now to meet Crumb. The shadows were lengthening when he entered a previously unexplored section of waterway and saw a punt in centre stream ahead of him. The wind had dropped, and the water lay unruffled, disturbed only by the legs of a water-walking insect or fish fin. The punt held two men. They were both standing and casting into the lilies along either side of the arm. As Yeats came closer he saw they were oriental, possibly Indonesian. One was obviously older than the other and wore all white: a hat, shirt, and baggy trousers. His younger companion was similarly dressed but wore a baseball cap instead of a hat.

They were using fly rods of thin bamboo, and they flicked and whipped their lures along the edge of the lilies with skill. As they worked their lures, they changed places in the punt with, what seemed to Yeats, to be a sixth sense, each knowing exactly where the other was so that the punt was never destabilised and they never got in each other’s way. They cast and retrieved with ease and poise worthy of artistry found on the Opera house or Covent Garden stages, yet one false step and the yellow water of the billabong could part to reveal the villain of the melodrama, with a fixed grin but no moustache.

Yeats followed behind them as they worked along the billabong, mesmerised by the knowledge that their dance of cast and shuffle could become a dance of death. They saw him and acknowledged his presence with short bows before continuing. Although the width between the banks remained constant, the channel narrowed where water lilies had spread almost from one side to the other. The punt with the balletic Asians on board slowly turned into another channel and Yeats, sprawled in his punt and lazily somnambulant with the hypnotic effect of having watched the fishermen repeatedly cast and collect, motored slowly on.

The perfume from the lilies was almost overpowering, and Yeats felt heady. He couldn’t believe the beauty of the place. Even the name, Fire Dreaming Island, had a beauty and mystery about it. If the trip had led him here and nowhere else, it would have made the journey worthwhile. Yeats felt ecstatic. This experience almost compensated for the dilemma in which he now found himself. At that moment, his fishing rod, which he had rested behind him, its lure dangling and occasionally touching the water, bent downwards. The tug became a pull, and then the reel whined as line ran out, cleaving the water like wire through cheese. Yeats grabbed the rod and applied the tension, and a fish leapt out of the billabong. Bright in the sunlight and beautiful to behold, it tail-danced across the water, shaking its head to throw the lure. Yeats tried to reel in the slack line created by the fish’s leap for freedom but couldn’t keep sufficient tension on the line. The fish leapt a second time, and shaking its head again, tossed the lure-free. As quickly as it had appeared, it was gone. Yeats sat trembling in the punt, his breath shallow, his eyes wide with wonder. Yeats was disappointed, yet glad the fish had got away.

He smelled the familiar cigarette smoke before he heard the familiar voice.

“That’s not how I taught you how to fish, Wazza.”

The voice came from over his shoulder, and Yeats turned to see Crumb standing on the bank about three or four metres from the punt.

The Oddmire: Changeling (Book#1) by William Ritter ~ Book Review

Book Description:

Magic is fading from the Wild Wood. To renew it, goblins must perform an ancient ritual involving the rarest of their kind—a newborn changeling. But when the fateful night arrives to trade a human baby for a goblin one, something goes terribly wrong. After laying the changeling in a human infant’s crib, the goblin Kull is briefly distracted from his task. By the time he turns back, the changeling has already perfectly mimicked the human child. Too perfectly: Kull cannot tell them apart. Not knowing which to bring back, he leaves both babies behind.

Tinn and Cole are raised as human twins, neither knowing what secrets may be buried deep inside one of them. Then when they are twelve years old, a mysterious message arrives, calling the brothers to be heroes and protectors of magic. The boys must leave behind their sleepy town of Endsborough and risk their lives in the Wild Wood, crossing the perilous Oddmire swamp and journeying through the Deep Dark to reach the goblin horde and discover who they truly are.

Review (by Parker):

The Oddmire is a unique book that gives young readers a new fantasy world to explore and learn about through the eyes that live there.The main characters Tinn and Cole love to mess around and are very mischievous they have such a great bond with each other and their mom. But there is one thing that gets them wondering. Which one is a changeling and which one is a normal human boy? A changeling is a goblin that replicates another human at a very young age all the goblins must do is place the changeling beside the human baby and take the human away. After the changeling has been with the humans it turns back into a goblin and returns to the goblin horde. But what happens when you leave the changeling and human together and forget which one is which. Will the forest die without the changeling coming back? There is still hope that one of the goblins ,named Kull who started the mess, can get the changeling back to horde and restore magic in the Wild Wood. It may sound easy but many different creepy creatures live in the Wild Wood. This book would probably be best suited with kids aged 8-13. Out of 5 stars I’d give a rating of 4.5 as the book gives you plenty of details of what is happening. It’s a real page turner for sure!
