tea and primrosesTea and Primroses by Tess Thompson
Genre: Women’s Fiction/Contemporary Romance
Price: 99 cents
Where to Get It:
Amazon

Nothing is as it seemed in calm, quaint Legley Bay.

Famous novelist, Constance Mansfield lived a seemingly straightforward – if private – and somewhat predictable life. Friends, beloved daughter Sutton, a beautiful home, and all the success an author could wish for. A perfect life….but was it?

When a hit and run accident suddenly takes her mother’s life, Sutton finds hidden secrets with her heartbreak. Emotional walls she assumed Constance had built to protect her privacy may have been to protect something – or someone – else entirely. Family and friends return home for support, including her own lost-love, Declan. He’s the first thing she craves to help her cope with her loss and the questions she’s left with, but he’s also the last person she wants to see. Will he be able to put down roots at last?

Can the loss of true love be the making of a life or is it destined to be the undoing of everything? When money, power and love combine across time, anything is possible.

What they’re saying about it:

Tea and Primroses is a number of stories, beautifully combined into a powerful book. Two bittersweet tales of lost love and tragedies intertwine with friendship and family without feeling contrived or forced, and form the soul of this book. Enduring friendships and loyalty are as much a part of the story as the love stories. Characters are three dimensional, and well developed. Tess made me laugh and cry, and at one point I spit water on the cat laughing. The father-daughter scene and mother-daughter scenes resonated with me. Powerfully written, but not overdone.

Tea and Primroses is absolutely the best book I’ve read in quite a while! I finished it early this morning after reading it in one sitting because I couldn’t stand to put it down. The prologue drew me in, calling to me like a cup of lemon tea and fresh shortbread cookies do. I’ll admit it, I was hooked from that point on.

Cover - FINALWith the Headmaster’s Approval by Jan Hurst-Nicholson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Price: $2.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon

The controversial appointment of a handsome widower and former US Naval Officer as head teacher of an English all girls’ school ignites sexual tension, rebellion, and the unearthing of dark secrets, and changes their lives in ways none of them could imagine.

Adam Wild arrives at St Mary’s Academy for Girls intent on restoring discipline to the once prestigious school. Not everyone is pleased. Jenna Murray believes the headship should have been hers and undermines his authority at every turn. They fight a forbidden sexual attraction – until a troubled girl makes a shocking allegation.

Then Nicole, his late wife’s kid sister returns from Africa with a startling request he’s unsure he can fulfil, forcing Adam to re-evaluate his feelings about love.

Lust shouts. Love whispers. Only the heart knows the difference.

What they’re saying about it:

“A most enjoyable, skilfully written story with thoroughly likeable characters about whom I cared.

There are many interwoven story lines that complement each other well. When it was suggested to me that this book is perhaps a romance, I was surprised. It has a romantic element yes, but there are so many themes, I’d find it hard to categorise.”

“A quick read with very real, interesting characters, I loved the plot. Light hearted, it took me back to my school days. Pity we never thought about what went on in the staff room in those days :) Lived the book.”

2011 eNovel of the Year!
[From a poll of readers on Facebook and Goodreads.]

Zac is dragged from a mundane existence into a world of “super” humans, both good and evil. And it turns out that he’s one of them. Now, with the help of Dr. Skinner and the beautiful Lea, he must hunt down and stop a band of similarly “enhanced” psychopaths — or die trying.

This fast paced, action packed, science fiction adventure travels the globe in an adrenalin-filled race against time. From the Berkshire Downs of the UK, to New York and Africa, the tale moves from one breathtaking battle to the next.

A science fiction super hero (well, kinda super) action adventure.

110,00 words, roughly equivalent to 413 pages in a mass market paperback.

Rated R

What people are saying:

“Enhanced is a breakneck (often literally) thrill ride as Zac and his allies deal with super powered maniacs.” -Sam White
“AMAZING BOOK! Intrigue, futuristic, and a ten on action Richter scale, this book will keep you entertained from start to finish.” -Kissablysweetone
“…a world that will suck you in and leave you on the edge of your seat until the last page. When you finish it, you just want to start all over again.” -James P. Dean
