BLOG TOUR – Angel Fire by Meg Buchanan & Deryn Pittar

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for ANGEL FIRE by Meg Buchanan & Deryn Pittar. This is a short fast-paced paranormal romantic suspense that will appeal to many readers

ANGELFIRE  by Deryn Pittar and Meg Buchanan

Buy from   AMAZON

When Major Lewis Carpenter arrives home in Haven Falls he’s literally knocked off his feet by his neighbour, Emma. She’s even more gorgeous than he remembers.

That evening, he arrives at her door with a bottle of wine, only to find her armed and ready to repel invaders. After much persuasion, she tells him she’s an angel and the devil has chosen her to be his bride – but she’s not going without a fight.

Lewis, who suffers from PTSD, finds her story about as believable as some of his flashbacks, but is prepared to go along with her until proven otherwise because he’s fantasized about her for years.

What follows is an exciting couple of days involving fights with fallen angels, a kidnapping and a rescue involving a fire truck. All’s fair in love and war, especially if you’re falling in love with an angel.


My thoughts

Angel Fire is a short, fast paced read that had me gripped from the first page.  Despite being short the characters develop quickly and gain depth throughout the story.

Emma is an angel living a quiet life but the dark side have her in their sights.

Lewis is in the army and comes home on leave suffering from PTSD when Emma literally knocks him for six.

A love story waiting to happen but first the demons need to be dealt with and this reveals the inner characters of Lewis’ parents as unknown skills become useful.

With it being a short story it is difficult to write a review without spoilers so I hope I have intrigued you enough to buy the book as you wont be disappointed this is a lovely story that will appeal to readers who like paranormal, romance, suspense and many other genres.

I am hoping for more books featuring Emma and Lewis

5 stars from me


Author Bios

Deryn Pittar

I write futuristic and fantasy fiction, spiced with romance and adventure. This allows my imagination to run free, to create interesting characters caught in unusual circumstances and events. Sometimes I have the pleasure of watching science and technology catch up with my imagination.

I also write Young Adult, short stories and flash fiction; articles on writing and I am published in these genre. I self-published a children’s rhyming book and once won a prize for a short screen script.

I’m a published poet and I endeavour to put my poetry skills into my fiction writing to enhance the word pictures I create.

I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand which lives up to its name. I belong to the Romance Writers of N.Z., Tauranga Writers, and Spec.Fic.NZ (speculative fictionNZ).

 

Meg Buchanan

I live in Paeroa, a small town in New Zealand, with my husband and a black labrador. Most of my books are set in my home town, simply because it has a rich history, and the streets already have names, so do the rivers and the mountain nearby, and the neighbouring towns also have names, so I save time on world building.

I have been writing for seven years. Before that I was a teacher, then a kitchen designer, and for a year, the creator of resources for drug education. But now writing is what I do.

I love creating books about ordinary people doing interesting things. The characters in my story are just a little better looking and more charismatic than in real life, but they think and feel like normal people.

My books cover many genre, action adventure, scifi, historical fiction, and romance. Up until now you won’t find a vampire or werewolf in any them, but in the future, that can’t be completely ruled out.

BLOG TOUR: Almost an Author

Almost an Author by Susan Tarr 

Available from AMAZON

When a chance meeting with a local publisher outside a small bookshop results in all three of her manuscripts being signed, Ruby Wright thinks she has it made. Already she sees images of herself wearing dark glasses, being mobbed by fans clamouring for her latest blockbuster… Little does Ruby know, but her ditsy publisher is a charlatan who has no more idea about publishing than Ruby does. Pretty soon Ruby is broke. She has no IT experience so depends heavily on her nerdy flatmate, Hunter, whenever her computer fails her. He has enough of his own issues to deal with—he is studying for his final law exams. She bribes him with a dog she found on the side of the road, then Panforte, which chips his tooth, and a couple of Axolotls until he finally gives in and helps her. But Ruby’s life is filled with disaster… What follows is excitement, disappointment, heartache, love and loss as we follow Ruby’s hilarious struggles to maintain her trust and focus in the ever-shifting publishing industry and in people in general.

My Review

Ruby is an author trying to make her way in the minefield that is publishing. She meets up with Barbara by chance outside a bookshop. I haven’t decided if Barbara is a wannabe agent or a con woman out to rip off struggling authors. Either way what follows is a rocky road of twists and turns, laughter and tears. Ruby is a likeable character although very scatty and her life is a car crash as she pings from one thing to another to try to make ends meet while still finding time to write. She rents a room to Hunter to help with the bills. Hunter is very nerdy and unreliable and tends to go AWOL with no notice. During one of Hunter’s absenses Ruby moves next door to James. Enter another weirdo to make up the threesome (oops I forgot the strange dog that fell off the back of a lorry). This is an amusing book that keeps the reader turning the pages. It is marketed as romantic comedy but if you are looking for steamy sex scenes and lovey dovey you will be disappointed. This is more loving friendship and learning to live with each others quirky behaviour. A really good read to cuddle up in bed with

Akamatra

Well, to be honest, this book created some strong feelings in me. As a person who has been cheated on by an ex fiance, I was triggered by reading the infidelities of the hero. I was heart broken for Tessa and wanted to kick Luke ass!  Read more here


Ginger Book Geek

In short, I would definitely say that I really enjoyed ‘I Thought I Knew You’ and I would definitely recommend it to other readers.  As I am a bit OCD, I fully intend to get the other books in the series and read the series in order.  The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a well deserved 4* out of 5*.  Read more here

Available from AMAZON

Luke Reilly’s whole life is mapped out. His father wants him to work in the family business. Tessa wants him to marry her. But he has already broken out of the straight jacket they’ve put him in. And he’s about to get found out.

Can he mend what he’s broken?

Does he want to?

Will he leave and chase the dream, or stay and do what everyone expects?

I wrote Scavenger Hunt to enter it in a national competition, just to see if I could write. It won the competition and really it has all gone on from there.

Jen Med’s Book Reviews

I found that I really enjoyed the authors writing style and that I could connect with the characters making it very easy to read.  Read more here


Robin Loves Reading

I read a lot of mystery/thrillers and love when I have the opportunity to read a romance and it breaks up all of that tension. I was delighted to read Abby’s Promise. It was very sweet, although there were times that I wanted to throttle Abby. Despite that, I smiled, felt saddened, angered and rejoiced – all while reading this sweet story.  Read more here


The Bookworm Drinketh

I loved that Abby was a proper woman, no wilting waif in this story. She was curvy and realistic…. though, if someone called her fat one more time I was probably going to chuck the book across the room.  Read more here


My Lavender Tinted World

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a short, quick, fun read but I felt that there were certain things that were glossed over. The main thing was Abby’s marriage to Evan. She didn’t want Joey to know about this as the two had been friends in high school, but Abby and Joey had never dated.   Read more here


Beth in a Box

Fast paced and emotional without shoving sex in my face, it provided me with some much needed escapism and I finished it in less than 24 hours.  Read more here


Sassy Redhead Book Reviews

I liked this story and found it to be very real. It’s very well written and it had me cheering Abby on for being such a strong woman who knew her own mind even though she had a lot to overcome from her choices in her past. She is a woman who has a mind of her own and works very hard to prove her worth and her love.  Read more here


Black Books Blog

I really liked the character of Joey as he struggles to maintain his tough soldier boy image whilst also trying to keep his relationship with Abby going, even though his dad doesn’t want him to be happy.  Read more here

Available from Amazon

He walked out of my life eight years ago, and for the first couple of years, I wrote him faithfully.

Then life happened, and we lost track of each other. Now he’s back; appearing one day on campus and sweeping me off my feet. He looks the same—rough stubble on his square jaw, broody brown eyes, thick brows that always lifted when I made him laugh. My Jo-Jo has come home after eight years in Afghanistan.

She looks the same as I remember her in high school, but now she’s all woman—sophisticated, educated, and just as curvy as ever. And now she’s a professor, and I’m falling for her all over again like I did at senior prom. War screwed me up, but every day Abby was my saving grace.

She promised one day she’d never let me go, made me promise I’d come back to her. I’ve come back to claim that promise. There’s just one problem: Abby’s moved on. How will I convince the love of my life that a day never went by without her on my mind?

BLOG TOUR – Abby’s Promise by Rebekka Dobson @junctionpublish #romance #kindleunlimited

Today I am kicking off the Blog Tour for a great new release in the Romance genre. This is not my usual genre but this is a great read with an element of suspense that will appeal to many readers.

My Review

Romance is a genre I don’t usually read but I like to read something different and I wasn’t disappointed.

This is a story of how love will find a way. Abby and JoJo have been friends since school and made a promise to each other. JoJo joins the Marines and is shipped off to Afghanistan and Abby gets herself into one mess after another.

Now JoJo is back and life is not how he left it. Problems at home a dysfuntional relationship with his father …. He goes back to college and ends up with Abby as his tutor.

A story of coincidences and fate stepping in regularly to throw a spanner in the works plus JoJo’s father on a mission to ensure his son never finds happiness or peace. Suspense is interwoven through the book which makes for additional interest. A steadily moving gripping read.

I am still not sure about Abby’s character there seemed to be a little something missing but it did develop well. JoJo we have to love the ‘hardened soldier’ act was never going to work and I found myself persuading him to do things. He is a realistic character his friendly personality being in direct contrast to his father’s made the family relationships work perfectly.

A well written, entertaining read that will appeal to readers who like romantic suspense.
