Amii’s Angel

For years, Amii Sloan has held a burning grudge against Ryan Maine for his cutting cross examination during her sister’s murder trial. Now, a chance encounter brings Ryan back into her life, along with a very interesting proposition—to work as his personal assistant in the idyllic
town of Unity.

Down on her luck, and supporting a mother with early onset dementia, Amii doesn’t have much of a choice but to accept the job Ryan offers. But can she overlook the past, to possibly open the door to a brighter future?

As she spends time with the handsome, successful lawyer, she realizes that maybe first impressions can be wrong, and that just maybe she and Ryan could share a whole lot more than she ever imagined.

Liz Archer dislikes big-city lawyer Trent Callahan on sight. Not only does he remind her of her two-timing ex-husband, he never seems to stop bragging: about his skills, his money, even his cooking. She calls him Mr. Arrogant.

A successful commercial banker, Liz is attractive, warm-hearted and single, but wants nothing to do with romance. Occasional friends with benefits, okay—she’s not made of stone. But she’s determined never to fall in love, especially not with the dangerously handsome Trent!

However, Trent doesn’t seem to be getting the message, and her growing affection for his two sad-eyed kids doesn’t make it any easier to keep him at a distance. Then Liz must face an accusation that could destroy her career and even send her to prison, and she just might have to turn to Mr. Arrogant for help.

Suspenseful, humorous and heart-warming, peopled with believable friends, neighbors and small-time villains, You’re So Vain is set in Oakville, a modern American small town where people still know their neighbors, friendships last a lifetime, and gossip is a force of nature.

Welcome to Books to Go Now’s Newsletter
This week we have new releases!

Second Chance Cinderella – Sharon Kleve

Second Chance Cinderella is story three in the new romance series, Cinderella Body Club. A timeless Cinderella story reimagined where four girlfriends make a wish on a magic locket. They all wish they are beautiful, confident, and able to find their Prince Charming.

Raven St. James is a Phlebotomist in a prominent Portland, Oregon hospital. She is petite, with jet-back hair, green eyes, and extremely shy. She dreams of being like the nurses on the daytime hospital shows—perfect. Tall, blond, blue eyed, with big breasts.

Dr. Quinn Taylor admires Raven’s skill, and the caring she shows with her patients, but can’t get her attention. Until the day she winks at him.

Raven only has 24 hours in her Cinderella body. What will she do with it? Will she become the confident, strong, flirty girl she wants to be? Will she get the guy she’s always wanted? Quinn.

Love on Ice – Lauren Marie

Kate Beck once was a nationally recognized figure skater. Eight years ago, on the brink of being one of the top three skaters in the United States, her dreams came crashing down at the hands of her coach and her mother. She walked away and has hidden from her mother ever since. Moving from place to place, she gets off a bus in Canon City, finds a job and settles in for the winter. She’s been lonely and dreams that one day she’ll meet a man, have a family and be able to stay in one place. It’s been eight years of running. She hopes her mother has given up the search for her.

Jay Hager grew up in Canon City. He once was an ice hockey player who got picked up by the NHL and played briefly for a junior team. At nineteen years of age, he blew his knee out and his career was at an end. He returned to Canon and bought a dilapidated skating rink. His business has done very well. He notices a beautiful strawberry blonde sits every weekend in the bleachers at the rink and she watches the skating classes and his pee-wee hockey team practice. He would like to get to know her, but finds a mystery around her.

Will Kate stay long enough to find love or let her past fears overwhelm all the good emotions she feels for Jay? Will her mother find her and tear her new world apart?

The Spirit Path – Tammy Tate

“Where did I come up with the idea for The Spirit Path?” you ask. That’s easy.

A palomino horse named “Ben” and a Rottweiler named “Cash” inspired me. After years of horseback riding over acres of undeveloped Texas terrain it sparked my imagination. Did Native American’s ride their horses down these same trails? What was it like back then? Would someone in the twentieth century be able to survive in 1800? Ideas exploded inside my head of danger, suspense and above all romance.

I enrolled in a Journalism/Short Story class and after hours of research, The Spirit Path emerged. Native American history truly fascinated me. I even sprinkled Sioux dialect throughout my manuscripts. Writing became a passion. It stood to reason my genre of choice would be time travel, romance. As time passed, characters that I literally breathed life into refused to go away. Nicole and Flaming Arrow lived century’s apart. They were restless. It was up to me to unite them once more.

With the help of my magnificent publisher, The Spirit Path has evolved into a three part series. Book 1 and 2 are available through BooksToGoNow.com and Amazon. Book 3 is near completion. Telling the story has been the easy part. The hard part, will be to let them go…

Keeping Your Teens Safe

By Angela Ford (Best Seller in Amazon’s Women’s Action & Adventure Fiction – FBI Internet Safety Series – Closure & Forbidden)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

‘The Scary Facts’
– 50% of teens communicate online with someone they’ve never met

– 30% of teenage girls are sexually solicited in chat rooms

– 77% of children targeted by Internet predators are 14 or older

– 64% of teens do things online they don’t want their parents to know

– 60% of teens have received an email/instant message from a stranger and half have communicated

We cannot always monitor and control our children online. But there are things you can do to feel confident about keeping your kids safe online and encourage the good things the Internet has to offer. Here are a few tips I found:

•Be aware – Get to know where your teen is most active on social media, what they talk about online and how much time they spend on the Internet. This doesn’t mean that you have to approve every post or sit with your teen as she or he uses the Internet. Just check-in every once in a while.

•Be honest – Set expectations – Tell your teen that you’re checking in. Once he or she is aware that you keep tabs for safety reasons, your teen might be less likely to visit dangerous sites, or post risky content online. This gives you an opportunity to be open about what you consider safe – and dangerous – Internet usage.

•Communicate – Join your teen online. Even though it might be a difficult conversation to have, start a dialogue with your teen about risky teen behaviors. Applaud good online behavior. When teens use the Internet properly, let them know! Validation from you will help your teen stay on track and continue to behave safely online.
Angela Ford works for Public Education and lives in Ontario, Canada. Being a mom has always filled her home with teenagers – her social network mentors. Angela is passionate about education. A dedicated volunteer involved with cyber safety seminars gave her an Award of Distinction. The quiet moments she does find allows her to plot to intrigue her readers.

About Love on Willow Creek:
Spurned by the boy she loved in high school, Bridget Lawson fled Willow Creek the day after graduation to search for fame on the rodeo circuit. She won purse after purse, but used whisky and casual sex to deaden the pain in her heart. Eight years later, she’s a recovering alcoholic and returns to Willow Creek to try to rebuild her life. She buys a small ranch, determined to open a barrel racing school. All she needs is a loan to build an arena to attract the wealthier residents with their small ranchettes and young, horse-crazy daughters.
Recently divorced from Lucy Savoy, Tom Browdy has delayed his dream of raising world-class quarter horses to run his father’s bank. When Bridget walks into his small-town bank to ask for a loan, her spark re-lights his passion for his vision—and for the woman he once loved and betrayed. Will she be able to forgive him for being young and stupid?
Bridget resists when Tom begins to court her, afraid he’ll find out about her past. Lucy hasn’t given up on Tom, and will do whatever it takes to get him back. Will they be overcome the pain of their past to create a future in a small Montana town on the edge of the Rocky Mountains? Or will Lucy’s plot to get Tom back ruin Bridget’s business and her chance to reunite with her high school love?

Love is in the Air CoverBlurb:

Sophie Grant made a promise to her friend. She will travel more and work less. She loves the comfort of her book store and has no desire what-so-ever to go on an adventure—not when she can read about them every day in a book.
But a promise is a promise.

After sticking a pin in a map she heads off to the Colorado Rockies.
High in the Colorado Rockies, world renowned photographer Jonas Hansen is healing from a personal loss. Will Sophie’s kind nature, love of photography, and beautiful smile make Jonas whole again?

Excerpt:
Sophie climbed the stairs and Jonas held the door open for her. He didn’t leave a lot of room to get by and she could feel his breath across her neck as their bodies brushed. He removed the pack from her shoulder after she stepped inside and one of the straps snapped.
“That’s a new backpack. I can’t believe that just happened.” At first, Sophie felt embarrassed, and then mad that her pack didn’t even last a day before something broke.
He laughed and pointed to a picnic-bench-style table. “Don’t worry. I can fix it. Have a seat. Would you like a cup of coffee?”
Sophie took a deep breath and replied, “I’d love a cup. Heavy on the cream please.” She sat and zipped her pocket before she removed her coat. Sophie didn’t want any of her precious feathers to float away.
“That’s how I drink my coffee, but I only have the powdered stuff. Is that all right?” Jonas asked as he laid her pack on the table.
“Sure. I’m not picky. I usually drink it out of my secondhand Mr. Coffee machine.” Sophie had a hard time keeping her eyes off of Jonas. He took off his jacket and his large shoulders pulled at the fabric of his shirt, emphasizing the muscles in his back and arms. Talk about being unprofessional. She needed to stop ogling his body. To distract herself, she looked around the building. The interior reminded Sophie of a miniature ski lodge, except hiking poles and backpacks hung on the walls instead of skis and goggles.
“Here you go. The coffee is hot, but not necessarily good.” His hand brushed hers as he pulled away.
“I’ll take it hot over good any day.” Too late, she realized how that might’ve sounded. The heat rose in her cheeks as she clarified, “I meant I like my coffee served hot.”

 Bio:

Sharon Kleve was born and raised in Washington and currently lives on the Olympic Peninsula with her husband.
Sharon is a writer of paranormal and contemporary romance. She loves romance. She loves reading romance, living romance, and especially loves writing about romance. She gets no greater feeling than watching her characters come alive in each other’s arms. Most of all, she loves giving her characters the happily ever after they deserve—with a few bumps and bruises along the way.
One of her favorite things to do is picking up a new book and sinking into the story, immersing herself in the emotions between the characters. She hopes to inspire her readers the same way her favorite authors have inspired her.
When not writing, she can usually be found either curled up in her recliner with her cat and a good book, or in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or bagels.

Here's my writing process. By Author Beth Wilson

Does it need any preface or closure?

My first step is the idea. In Worth It, that was simply “girl and guy with big age difference.” The main characters come next, and a general direction for the story with the desired ending. Then I add secondary characters and plot, and start writing the scenes. Once I get to the end, I rewrite a couple of times, and then edit. My favorite method is to write the first draft during National Novel Writing Month in November, because it gives me such a boost to get it done so quickly and because it’s so fun to spend a month with other writers pounding away at the keyboard! The rest of the process is fun, too, though. After writing a good scene, I always feel energetic and happy.

 

When I set out to write a story or a novel, the first step for me is the idea. In Worth It, that was simply “girl and guy with big age difference.” I’ve always heard that you should write what you know, so I tend to develop the idea in a location I’m familiar with, and with jobs that I’ve had or that a friend has.

The main characters come next, and a general direction for the story with the desired ending. Occasionally I’m not sure of the ending until I get a little ways into the story, but it works best if I know where I’m going before I start trying to get there.

After that, I add secondary characters, plot, and subplot, and then it’s time to start writing the scenes. My favorite method is to write the first draft during National Novel Writing Month in November, because it gives me such a boost to get it done so quickly and because it’s so fun to spend a month with other writers pounding away at the keyboard! After writing a good scene, I always feel energetic and happy.

Once I get to the end, I rewrite a time or two, and then edit. Sometimes during the rewrite I make some major changes that I didn’t think of until halfway through the first draft, and sometimes the second draft is just an edited first draft, depending on how well I planned it out before I started writing. I enjoy the editing process, but it’s always difficult to stop, and even after a story is done I tend to think of things to change several days later when it’s too late. A story is never really done, though. You just have to stop at some point and step away.
