Wounded Heroes Blog Hop

 

It’s Blog Hop time!!

 

A Rosa for Russell

 

Rosa and Russell’s story is the perfect story of acceptance. The American Civil War was one of the most passionate, and personal wars of American history. It’s a battle between, siblings, parents, friends, and acquaintances.

 

Personal beliefs were questioned. As a nation, we grew. We changed, and we learned. In that tragedy, two people were able to find love.

 

Rosa approached an auburn-haired young man. His battle worn body looked defeated. But when she looked into his eyes, she saw pure determination.

She wondered how long it would take before he lost hope. She wrote down his name, Russell McNamara, and other vital information for his chart.

Andrews was called to help the other soldiers outside.

She concentrated on the wound. Not good. Stomach wounds were the worst. At least it was to the side under the ribs. She hoped it wasn’t too deep or infected.

Her heart broke watching the man clench his teeth as she cleaned his wound. His chest pounded under her fingertips. Sweat beaded on his face and arms.

He spoke to her with a slight brogue accent. “I don’t understand. Why would the buzz of flies cause nightmares?”

Amusement tickled her voice, and she moved his hair away from his face. “Have you been listening to my conversation?”

“Yes ma’am. I like the sound of your voice.” He offered her a half-hearted grin. “You keep talking. I like it. Is it really so bad?”

A tear dropped down the edge of Rosa’s cheek. “God help me, but I loathe going outside near the pens. Two minutes out there, and you’ll be covered in ticks, fleas, and biting flies. The stench alone is enough to turn a person’s stomach. All those flies.”

 

Some American Civil War trivia for you to enjoy.

 

Traveller was Robert E Lee's horse that he rode through most of the Civil War. He weighed about eleven hundred pounds and stood nearly sixteen hands high. He outlived General Lee and, upon his death, was buried next to the Lee Chapel. Although Traveller was Lee's favorite horse, his stable also included four other horses: Richmond, Brown-Roan, Ajax, and Lucy Long.

 

The Gettysburg Address is considered one of the greatest speeches ever written. Lincoln's Gettysburg address took less than two minutes to deliver.

 

The words "In God We Trust" first appeared on a U.S. coin in 1864.

 

 

One of Jefferson Davis' own slaves, Mary Bowser served an important role in the Union spy ring organized by Elizabeth Van Lew. It isn’t known how much information was gathered.

 

The first black war correspondant was Thomas Morris Chester.

From August 1864 to the end of the Civil War in May 1865, he provided readers of the Philadelphia Press first-hand experiences of black soldiers on the Virginia front.

 

John Tyler was the only U.S. President to serve the Confederacy during the Civil War. The former U.S. President helped create the Southern Confederacy. He died in 1862, a member of the Confederate House of Representatives.

 

Confederate General Richard S. Ewell was wounded on May 23, 1863 at the Second Battle of Manassas but returned to duty with a wooden leg. On July 3, he was wounded again at the Battle of Gettysburg. When one of his men asked if he was okay, he replied that it "don't hurt a bit to be shot in a wooden leg."

 

Robert Smalls freed himself, his crew and their families from slavery on May 13, 1862, by commandeering a Confederate transport ship, the CSS Planter, in Charleston harbor, and sailing it from Confederate-controlled waters to the U.S. blockade.

 

Senator John J. Crittendon of Kentucky had two sons who became major generals during the Civil War--one for the North and one for the South.

A Girls Trip Novel 
by Tracey Livesay 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
 
Publisher: Avon 
Publication Date: December 30, 2019
 
 
Tracey Livesay delivers the first novel in her sexy new series about lifelong friends and unforgettable love stories.
 
When everything is on the line, 
 
surrendering completely to love is your only choice… 
 
Marketing manager Caila Harris knows that the road to success in the beauty industry doesn’t allow for detours. She’s forsaken any trace of a social life, working 24/7 to ensure her next promotion. When grief over her grandfather’s death leads to several catastrophic decisions, Caila gets one final chance to prove herself: shut down an unprofitable factory in a small Southern town. But as soon as she arrives in Bradleton, she meets one outsized problem: the town’s gorgeous mayor. 
 
Wyatt Bradley isn’t thrilled about his nickname, Mayor McHottie. He’s even less happy to learn that his town might be losing its biggest employer. If he has to, he’ll use some sneaky tactics to get Caila on his side. Yet even as he’s hoping she’ll fall for Bradleton, he’s falling too—right into a combustible affair that shakes them both with its intensity. 
 
Two stubborn people, torn between loyalty, ambition, and attraction. But when you’re willing to give it your all, there’s no limit to how far love can take you… 
 
 
 
 
 
Tracey Livesay’s latest release is Love Will Always Remember. She writes smart, sexy and emotional contemporary romances where strong, successful heroines find love with powerful, passionate heroes.

She’s been featured in Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post and on CBS This Morning. A former criminal defense attorney, she finds crafting believable happily ever afters slightly more challenging than protecting our constitutional rights, but she's never regretted following her heart instead of her law degree. Tracey lives in Virginia with her husband-who she met on the very first day of law school--and their three children. When not answering the call of wife, mother or author, she runs marathons and daydreams about designer purses.

Thorn of the Night Blossoms by JC Kang

Thorn of the Night Blossoms
Scions of the Black Lotus Book 1
by JC Kang
 
Genre: Epic Fantasy 
 
 
Thorn of the Night Blossoms is the start of a complete, 6-book series.

 

 
For an imperial assassin, assignment as a courtesan in the Floating World seems like a waste of her talents... until killers target her clan sisters.
 
In the legendary Floating World, wars are waged with wit, the strongest soldier can be bound with threads of silk, and flesh is the currency by which life, death, and freedom can all be purchased.
 
Half-elf Jie doesn’t mind her temporary assignment as a Night Blossom in the most sought-after house. It’s perfect cover for her real work as an assassin in the emperor’s service, and keeps her close to one who matters most. Her life belongs to her clan, but her heart lies with clan junior, Lilian.
 
Lilian’s talents trade stealth for sensuality, poison for poetry. With looks as sharp as any blade, she can coax information from any man, and still leave him paying for the pleasure. She’s enthralled many a noble, none more important than the warlord who can calm a brewing insurrection. Only her sweet whispers can secure his obedience to the throne.
 
But now, his increasing abuse has Jie seeking a new assignment for Lilian—even if it means their separation. When killers target clan sisters, and the seeds of rebellion find fertile soil in the Floating World, Jie must choose between loyalty and love.

Stella of Akrotiri: Diana by Linda Rae

 
 
Stella of Akrotiri: Diana
An Ancient Greek Tale of Immortals Book 3
by Linda Rae Sande
Genre: Epic Fantasy, Romance
 
Publisher: Twisted Teacup Publishing
Publication Date: December 25, 2019
 
 
Born an orphan, raised as a warrior princess, desired by men. Can an Immortal claim her heart?
 
The first adopted daughter of Stella and Darius, Diana has been raised as if she were one of the fabled Amazon princesses. Her mornings are spent training with Darius at the agōgē, her skills as a warrior matched only by a few of the Deminon army recruits. Her afternoons are spent with Stella as she learns the art of diplomacy and the importance of service to others.
 
Never does Diana wonder why her parents are so devoted to one another, or why they seem to speak of the past as if they lived in it.
 
The curious stares aimed in her direction by the agōgē’s doctor, Antony—even when she’s not in the circle of battle—has Diana on edge. Learning she has a much older adopted brother—one who seems to youthen as he ages—has her questioning her origins.
 
So the arrival of Augustus of Assyria seems fortuitous. Her father’s oldest friend is welcomed with open arms even as he is followed by a threat to the future of Deminon. With his intimate knowledge of her parents, perhaps he’ll have the answers Diana seeks. Or will the Roman senator’s revelation about her only complicate matters? For his attentions are far more intense than those of Antony—and far more arousing.
 
 
 
 
Stella of Akrotiri: Deminon
An Ancient Greek Tale of Immortals Book 2
Publication Date: December 25, 2018
 
 
Love can last a thousand lifetimes when you’re an Immortal... or so they thought.
 
What’s become of the Immortal Darius? His wife, Stella, worries about his fate as she rules over their city-state of Deminon, especially when she learns he’s been the victim of treachery. She’ll do anything to get him back.
 
Enslaved as a traitor to Rome, Darius is forced to fight gladiators as part of the funeral rites of powerful Romans. His years of experience on the battlefield serve him well in the arena—until he’s forced to fight Marcus—a younger, stronger gladiator who is unaware of his own immortality.
 
Sure he’s about to suffer a defeat by the hand of Marcus, Darius is forced to make a decision that will change his future and Stella’s—preserve his essence by allowing his body to die so that he can live on in Marcus. His two-thousand years of memories and life experiences should be powerful enough to overcome the essence of the untested Immortal. Allow him to return to Stella and resume their life together, even if she won’t immediately recognize him.
 
But Marcus isn’t giving up so easily. Especially when he meets Stella.
 
Will Marcus help Darius take revenge on the one whose deceit led to his arrest on charges of treason? Or will Darius’ essence slowly be subsumed, the memories of his nearly two-thousand-year lifespan—and of Stella—fading away in the mind of Marcus?
 
These Immortals once had all the time in the world. Now it’s suddenly of the essence.
 
 
 
 
Stella of Akrotiri: Origins
An Ancient Greek Tale of Immortals Book 1
Publication Date: June 28, 2019
 
 
Immortality can be a lonely existence, especially when the world is about to implode.
 
For over six hundred years, Darius of Agremon has fought wars on behalf of those who needed his skills in combat. As a lechagos on Strongili, he spends his days commanding the Minoan coastguardsmen against pirates and marauders. His nights are spent alone, for despite having had wives in the past, he has watched them all grow old and die, childless, as he continues to live.
 
So when he senses immortality in an olive farmer’s young daughter, Darius bargains to take her to wife when she is old enough to marry.
 
A foundling, Stella works in her adoptive father’s orchard above Akrotiri, climbing the ancient trees to prune and to harvest the strings of pearls from their branches. She fears invaders when she watches flaming arrows arc in the sky, a sign the island is under attack. She worries about how the ground quakes beneath her feet and steam erupts from cracks in the ground. She wonders at the odd tingling she experiences whenever Darius of Agremon is near, a sensation not unlike the one she feels when spending time in the oldest trees.
 
Unaware of the arrangement her father has made with the lechagos, Stella thinks she has been sold into slavery when Darius comes for her. Her youth has been spent admiring the man who helped her father’s business thrive. Now she has only contempt for him and his hard-headed manner, despite the pleasures he incites whenever he claims her body.
 
While the earth trembles and a volcano threatens to destroy the island of Strongili, these two will have to forge a relationship that will last far longer than a lifetime—one that must endure an eternity and the disaster that’s about to wipe out the only home Stella has ever known.

Enhancing Social Media for Marketing Books or Any Business

 

... ...

Enhancing Social Media for Marketing Books or Any Business

The burning questions:

How do I to enhance my social media marketing−simply and easily? How do I increase my readership and clientele? How do I get more followers? How do I increase my reach? How do I get people to buy? I’m not going to waste your time explaining things you already know.

We know we need social media sites. Don’t get caught up in statistics. Pay closer attention to the bottom line. We know about newsletters, and reviews, and etc.

Here are a few ideas and suggestions.

Get people to your page. Easy-peasy right? No. it’s not. You have to keep plugging away at it. Every day.

How do you get people to your page? Advertise and promote. Whether it’s free or paid, it’s still advertising and promoting. How much you pay and how careful you are with your money is very important. If you take promotions that are free, you may not get the reach you want or even be reaching the buyers you want. How much time you put into it determines what you get back. And where are your hard earned dollars going? If you’re only getting a small percentage of readers/buyers, you’re on the wrong track.

Get them to like and share your page.

You have a like and share on your page but they’re not sharing as much as you would like, right? How do you get them to like and share? Pay them for it. That’s right. Pay them…sort of. Offer them something in exchange for sharing your page and make sure they show you that they did it. For example: on Facebook have them tag you, or on twitter, have them @ you and you can see what they’ve done.

Examples of gifts: A free short story, a free pdf copy of your book, a free photo, a chance to win an Amazon gift card or Kindle Fire.

There are share plugins that you can use to unlock a special area that gives away free stuff.

Have you heard of Slide-Share? LinkedIn has a program similar to Pinterest only it shares slides.

Commun.it and Social Jukebox are two very good places to go to build relationships on twitter. Both have free options. Scheduling options are available and that is the cat’s meow! It saves you so much time, valuable time.

Don’t forget YouTube.

Create or join a small group of authors who are in the same genre as you. Don’t worry about sharing a post from another author thinking that you’ll lose a sale. There are plenty of readers to go around. That author may have a reader interested in your book.

A small group is very important. It’s exclusive and a schedule can be easily arranged. Let’s say you have five western romance authors in your group. Each author is assigned a day and she/he will share on their networking sites a post about your book/business on their day only. (Unless, they want to do more.) Once a week, that’s all you’re asking from each other. All you have to do is keep each other updated on new releases, discounts, etc.

If you’re not active on any of the social media sites, you’re dropping the ball. It’s time consuming to be constantly on all these sites. (That’s what we’re here for.) If you don’t use our promotional services, please find someone who does this for you. Social Jukebox and Buffer are two programs that will schedule your tweets and posts, creating a consistent presence. Just make sure you answer comments when you can.

Also, this is extremely important in keeping your presence in the mind of readers. Follow back! Yes, follow back. You are not more important than they are. Actually, as an author, your readers (and authors are also readers) should be more important, so, follow them back!

Now, I’m not saying follow back sketchy people or accounts. If you don’t like the look of their page, do not follow them back. Common sense and your safety must always prevail.

And the most irritating of all, when not used properly, pop-ups. Pop-ups are irritating to all of us, mostly when they’re being used the moment you hit someone’s page. Goodness, give the person a chance to read the page first! Pop-ups must be used properly in order for them to work to your advantage.

When they leave the page or pages, then utilize the pop-up. And please don’t do it to all the pages. Pick one or two pages and take advantage of the pop-up. Anything more and you’ll turn off the reader and possibly lose them completely.

Now, just to run it by you again, joining a bunch of social media groups does you absolutely no good if you are not active on the sites. If you do not take the time, you need to find someone to do it for you at a reasonable cost to you. It’s time consuming. Even with the scheduled tweets and posts, it is still time-consuming.

You have to make sure your posts and tweets are fresh. You can’t use the same posts over and over again for weeks and months at a time. The readers will block you out and skip over you. We can’t have that now, can we?

And don’t give up. Keep plugging away at it.

Re-cap:

Join social networks and be interactive. Follow back!

Take advantage of programs out there to make your life easier.

Use your social media to get your readers involved by holding contests, asking questions, holding interviews

And most of all−advertise.

Advertising can be free or even a group of authors who've pooled in their money to create a coop for advertising their books/genre/products. Do you have a coop? Would you like to start one? 

What are your ideas on how to enhance your social media for marketing and advertising your books? Let's work together!

 

 

Be More Successful

Marketing and marketing techniques and secrets are revealed in this easy to read how-to book.

Focused mainly for authors and anyone in the publishing industry, there's an abundance of information that anyone can use to increase exposure, and get more sales. It's a Call-to-Action and is especially written to help you move into a positive forward motion. There are ideas and techniques that can be taken advantage of before you finish reading.

General's Daughter Series

 
 
The Siren 
General's Daughter Book 1 
by Breanna Hayse 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
 
Publisher: Twisted Hearts Productions 
Publication Date: June 26, 2018
 
 
Lt. Samantha Quimby, USMC is a beautiful, brilliant and very unique young woman. Not only does she have the privilege of being the youngest known Special Ops officer in the Corps, but an unfortunate accident during a dive in the Marinas Trench leaves her permanently amphibious! Her new found ocean freedom, combined with her unique ability with ocean mammals and an overtly defiant and somewhat reckless nature, wreaks havoc on her very loving, but very strict family. Her father and uncle, both USMC Generals., and her older brother, Michael, are in constant pursuit of trying to keep her safe from herself and her own curiosity and often thoughtless actions. In desperation, the three resort to old-fashioned military discipline.
 
Sam is appalled, but it does not take long for her to discover that love can be expressed in a firm and consistent manner upon her little bottom. Love, laughter, duty, and obedience frames the young woman's life and, despite a constant sore backside, she couldn’t be happier.
 
Publisher's Note: This is the first of a nine book progressive series from coming of age in a DD household to discovering romance and advancing into maturity and exploring BDSM. The rerelease of the Generals' Daughter series contains new elements and the growth and maturing of the characters not seen in the original version. This larger volume of the 'story' line is the same, but the characters and their lives have whole new meaning and much more interaction. Even Ton is more opinionated than before! If you liked the original version, you will LOVE this one! 
 
 
 
 
Up a Notch 
General's Daughter Book 2 
Publication Date: July 19, 2018
 
 
BIGGER, BETTER, and with MORE ATTITUDE!
The General's Daughter is back, and she's at it again! True to her nature, Samantha Quimby finds a way to wreak havoc on the California coastline clear up to Alaska where she defies nature itself. This time, her entire family decides to bring things "Up A Notch" to try to get her to understand that she is not only loved and cared for, but that she is her own worst enemy.
 
This sequel to The Siren, Generals' Daughter Book 1, finds Sam in more precarious situations than even she can imagine as she comes of age and discovers her own power as a beautiful and intelligent young woman.
 
Her father, uncle and brother.... along with some outside help... plan on getting their points across to her in one way or another. Of course, Sammi's stubbornness can only be broken through in one embarrassing way... old fashioned discipline.
 
Does this stop her from pulling endless pranks on her brother, or risking her own safety in the 'name of science?' But she certainly has fun trying... UNTIL she’s busted! 
 
 
 
 
Caught in a Net 
General's Daughter Book 3 
Publication Date: September 22, 2018
 
 
Sam’s at it again! USMC lieutenant, Samantha Quimby, is beautiful, brilliant and ‘an independent thinker’ whose biggest delight is challenging the strict rules and regulations set by her commanding general father and uncle. Even more enjoyable is when she can slip past her big brother Michael’s watchful eye and follow her own path. As intelligent as she is, Sam’s need to pursue her own interests without considering the consequences subjects her frustrated family to trying every avenue of discipline they can think of. They conclude that nothing grabs the girl’s attention like attending to some old fashioned military discipline and an awful lot of love. But keeping her attention is another issue….
 
Her unique abilities and physical alterations after a life-threatening accident have also led her to ‘translate’ the cetacean code, which the image of being ‘caught in a net’ simply means… Trouble! After she and Michael complete a particularly dangerous Special Ops mission, Sam faces the most difficult challenge yet.
Love.
Lt. Richard Lewis, a handsome engineer who seems to display the best characteristics of the men in her beloved family… And the worse! It doesn’t take long for Sam to discover that the serious minded young man is determined to keep her safe, and that he won’t hesitate to impart his firm beliefs directly to her rebellious bare bottom!
 
Instead of coming to her rescue, he family approves highly of the new addition to the crew and the methods he uses to ensure good behavior from their naughty, little Siren. As if it’s not tough enough for Sam, even her best friend and constant ocean companion, the killer whale- Ton- is now requesting that Richard joins the family in 'biting her tail flukes!'
 
Poor Sammi just can't get a break... not even when she discovers her power as a beautiful, young woman and how to use it to get her way with Richard. Little does she know, but her new boyfriend is both willing, and able, to turn the tide and catch his lovely little mermaid in a net of his own design.
 
 
 
 
Convergence 
General's Daughter Book 4
Publication Date: October 16, 2018
 
 
Poor Sam! Not only does the brilliant, young lieutenant constantly find trouble every time she turns the corner, but now she faces a dilemma that leaves her in a quandary.
 
She’s face to face with a hot, dominant man who wants nothing more than to teach her what it feels like to be a woman, but he insists on honoring her family’s request to wait! 
 
When Sam discovers she can ‘converge’ with Richard much in the way she integrates with the cetaceans- and that she can insert a few ‘suggestions’ into the young man’s mind- she can’t help but experiment.
 
The result? Just say there aren’t enough cold showers in the world to stop the affects associated with her new-found power, nor are there pillows soft enough to make sitting more comfortable for Sam each time she’s busted!
 
Meanwhile, Michael’s romance with Teagan is quickly blossoming. He thinks she might even be the one- particularly when she admits to desiring a D&S relationship. Despite Sam’s warnings that fantasy is always better than reality, Teagan begins to test her boundaries with her strong alpha male boyfriend, and finds herself in a position that is NOT what she expected.
 
 
 
 
Under Cover 
General's Daughter Book 5
Publication Date: January 12, 2019
 
 
What's Sam up to this time?
For once, believe it or not, the trouble she's getting into isn't her fault!
 
After losing her temper and physically flattening a jerk on base for sexual misconduct, USMC Lt. Samantha Quimby is approached by the lovely Col. Joyce Howe under the pretense of an SJA inquiry. Instead of punishment, Sam’s ordered on a secret assignment to investigate a dangerous situation in a local high school where several military dependents attend. No problem, right? WRONG.
 
Except for her father and uncle, everyone believes she’s placed on administrative leave and is allegedly sent 'back to school' to learn how to socialize with people closer to her age. It wouldn't be so bad if her folks were home to fish her out of trouble, but they're called cross-country to a mandatory meeting. That means her brother, Michael, and her boyfriend, Richard, are left in charge.
Behaving like a high schooler is not in her blood- nor can she keep her mouth shut in class. From rolling her eyes in Calculus to reading Tolstoy in Russian, the girl keeps paving her way for more trouble when the frustrated principal calls Michael to pick her up. Now, the boys can deal with Sam’s saucy attitude, but they can't overlook her sneaking out of the house, stealing her uncle's Hummer, or lying to them. Yep, she’s busted- but she’s under orders NOT to tell anyone about her mission!
If all this isn't enough to contend with, Sam's relationship with Richard has reached the place where neither of them can’t deny their need for one another. Promise, or no promise, Richard’s determined to make Sam his- and she's not about to stop him!

As if that’s not enough, Sam’s also introduced to the intimacy of both Richard's love-making and the severity of his discipline. However, neither expect that her instinctive ability to converge with the local cetaceans have an added benefit that can make even the most unpleasant event one Sam longs to repeat as the term,Afterglow,takes on a whole new meaning! 
 
Sam’s not the only one receiving a stern wake-up call from the special man in her life. Teagan, her brother’s girlfriend, is coming face-to-face with the reality that Michael isn’t going to turn a blind eye to her mischief anymore than he does with his sister. Sam’s influence is rubbing off on the quiet girl, and soon Teagan finds herself in more hot water than ever before. 
 
Will Sam ever learn to behave? This question is the ongoing theme with her family and now, her boyfriend, Lt. Richard Lewis is just as involved. The answer- 
 
Probably not. 
 
Finally- in the process of planning a family vacation to Florida, some old, familiar names are brought up on the ‘to visit’ list, including ‘Big Bill’ Johnson (The Game Plan), Dr. Dan Paige and Dorian Graye (The Whip Master, Billion Dollar Daddies and Northern Lights: Lena).

That is, until she deliberately defies Michael and faces seriousness consequences that force her to reevaluate her future. Standing at a crossroads, she has a choice to make- does she really want a life as an officer's wife with all the pomp, circumstance, and discipline or should she just walk away and live with expectations she knows she can meet?

Unbreakable Bonds 
The General's Daughter Series Book 9
Publication Date: September 9, 2019
 
 
Aquaman fans!
Your favorite Marine biologist is back in one of the most emotional and heart-moving books of the series.
 
****
 
The Generals' house is full as Sam and Michael's birthday (and other romantic surprises) approaches. Teagan's visiting family is introduced to a world that's quite different than their Kentucky horse ranch--one that contains miles of beautiful beaches, perfect weather, and a killer whale who has a mind of his own. The visit isn't without its difficulties as Teagan's over-critical father brings the young woman's insecurities and pain to the surface. Seeing the love of his life in distress isn't acceptable and Michael steps up to prove that he's also her Knight in a shining Jag!
 
Little does anyone know that, as everyone enjoys the waves and warm sun, something terrible is happening deep in the trenches--and no one, except Sam, can fix it. Toxic waste and pollution settled in the canyons is threatening the survival of the endangered sharks, and the delicate balance of life. She's called upon by the most unlikely source and dives headfirst into danger to answer a cry for help. Her compulsiveness not only lands her in a heap of trouble with her parents, but also with Ton. The orca's fear for her safety results in his banning her from her ocean home and cutting her off from the pod. Feeling rejected and useless, Sam spirals into a dark, emotional place inside her mind--a place where the love of her family and Richard just isn't enough to heal her brokeness. She needs acceptance, but can she trust them to embrace the truth of the changes happening inside of her?
 
As if the chaos of Teagan's family isn't enough, other factors enter Sam's life that threaten to upset the precarious balance between her two worlds. With the talk of babies, Scott's attraction to a certain colonel, an unwelcome invasion of distant relatives, and feeling responsible to protect the marine population, Sam finds herself cornered and trapped. Tired of being disciplined for acting true to her nature, she no longer knows where she belongs. Only one thing is clear- she can't allow anyone, or anything, to suffer because of her, and makes a decision that demands a price that she knows will break her heart.
 
But nothing can break the bonds she shares with her family--both on land and in the sea. They teach her that, no matter how difficult life seems to be, they will be drawn together to unite under a common goal.
 
SNIVEL WARNING!
Generals' Daughter 9: Unbreakable Bonds, contains heartfelt emotional scenes, laughter, mischief, and lots of love. No worries- you'll always get a HEA!
 
Author's Note: This full length novel contains the final scenes from the original 2012 publication, and has been expanded with new material, and plenty of what readers of Breanna Hayse books are looking for- alpha men, hot romance, action and adventure, and old-fashioned family values. As for science- you know the deal! If you didn't think marine biology was fun (and dangerous), you haven't taken a dive with your favorite 'mermaid' or converged with the pod! 
 
 
 
 
 
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I'm a native Californian gone 'wild', and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.
 
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships. 
 
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time, I've devoted my 'spare' time to writing, researching, community involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
 
I was formally 'dungeon trained' as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on 'the real deal.'
 
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can't find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.

Janie Nolan’s future had never been more uncertain, she was just learning to live with the loss of her mother from cancer, she suddenly finds herself jobless after an unexpected diagnosis with autism at the age of fifty-five. The thought of moving back to her childhood home in the idyllic town of Cape May, New Jersey to assess her future is a daunting proposal. It is in that sleepy shore town that she must reconnect with her abusive father. Now ailing, he has handed over control of the family business, a failing small theater, as a possible means for a fresh start. However, Janie is uncertain as to what his true motives might be.
 
Alec Ryan, a handsome, former intern of her father’s and now a successful Broadway producer and director arrives from New York carrying his own tumultuous past with plans to assist Janie in restoring the theater to its former glory. Along the way, Alec discovers qualities in Janie that prove she is more than just her diagnosis and resolves to help restore Janie as well, simultaneously putting his own demons to rest and learning to love again.
 
But when the small town gossip mill begins to buzz about Alec and a piece of jewelry left by her mother is revealed, Janie learns of a secret that may take things in another direction could change the course of her life forever. 
 
 
 
 
 
HI! Just to tell you a bit about myself. I have lived in Seattle, WA most of my life however I was raised in New York and spent summers in Cape May, NJ. Most of my work is set on the beaches and beach towns of the Jersey Shore. I wrote my first novel when I was thirteen years old and continued to write poetry and short stories for the following years. I have had articles and papers published as well as photographs that were published in a book entitled "Rock and Roll Memorabilia II". 
 
I hold an AA degree in Business Management. I never obtained a degree in Literary Arts or Writing per se but I feel I come by my writing talent organically as William Shakespeare is my 1st cousin 12 times removed. 
 
"An Unexpected Gift" is my debut novel. Like Janie, the main character in the novel, I was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism at the age of forty-eight however I am proud to share this diagnosis with Ralph Waldo Emerson and Emily Dickenson as well as many others. I see my autism as a gift from God. It has given me a high intellect and innate talent that I use as a tool to enlighten the rest of the world to the plight of adults with autism. 
 
Like many people on the spectrum, I never married or had children which is sadly my greatest regret. I currently live with my wonderful sister Kendra and my three cats Tyler, Tabitha and Teddy in Spokane, WA. I am planning to move back to the New Jersey Shore as soon as possible.

She’s a down on her luck barback who’s had it with lions.
He’s a lion king who has thirty days to find his queen.
Life’s a rollercoaster, though, and it’s full of surprising turns ...
 
Lion, the future king of the lion prides in the U.S., only has thirty days to find his future queen and secure their fate. But Lion has his work cut out for him.
 
Jules has had it with shifters, and male lions in particular. She doesn’t need a man, even if he is a king, to mess up her life any more than her brother already has. Tired of being used and manipulated by others, she’s not just going to roll over and think of England.
 
It’s a good thing Lion’s not a slam-bam-thank-you-ma’am, Tennessee man. Our king’s about to show his queen that while life can sometimes be a bit of a rollercoaster ride, the best thing you can do is lock in tight and throw your hands in the air—and live.

Spider is a family man down to his core. He’s spent his life trying to live up to the expectations of being the future king of the Arachnid tribe. Now that his tattoo’s gone dark—it’s time to find his queen. Only he’s got cousins he needs to get down from trees, long-lost relatives popping out of the woodwork, a shady construction company cheating his people of their land, and a queen who’s more designer than she is redneck.
 
Sugar, and spice, and everything nice …
 
Chantelle is a Beaumont. Through and through. Or at least that’s the image she’s taught herself to project to the world. Done with trying to be perfect, she wants a family, a home, and for her king to show her there’s more to living than working and trying to be someone she’s not. More than this, she needs to believe in herself and that she has something to offer as queen.
 
Chantelle and Spider might start off rocky but they both know that the steady in life doesn’t come easy. Steady comes when two people are together and showing each other that home isn’t a place, work isn’t your life, and what they offer each other goes deeper than material things. The real steady, as both Spider and Chantelle have learned, is in laughter and antics and knowing to your soul that the person you’re with is your home.

And Shark’s worried he’s already failing as king.
 
Lexie Leland is a nerd. In fact, she’s in Nashville for a Comic-Con when she finds herself in a bind. Who should save her but a magical being, of course? Only Lexie isn’t buying what Shark is selling.
 
It’s a good thing these Nashville Shifter Kings know how to convince a woman he’s in it for the long haul.

Callie Hartwood, better known as Doc has always done the “right” thing. Being kidnapped changes a girl, though, and she makes a promise to herself. Her vow: She's done being a good girl. She's not a dog to be praised for rolling over. She’s a puma shifter. She’s got claws. And she’s no longer afraid to use them.
 
She’s going to be bad.
 
And Poison wants to show her how. His lessons, however, aren’t just for fun. He intends to win his queen, and he wants Callie to know that he may be a bad boy, but he’s the only man for her.

Six years ago, I had a best friend with sky-blue eyes, purposefully messy brown hair, and a body that made every single girl drool on sight. I would know—it drove me absolutely crazy…until I was the one doing the drooling.
 
Our days were filled with stomach-hurting laughter accompanied by easy conversation, and our nights were filled with secret, awkward teenage flirting.
 
But that was when Dawson was just my best friend. Nothing more, nothing less.
 
And then… it was more.
 
It’s a memory I pretend to see through blurry eyes, hazed by passing years of no communication. The one night that my heart was suddenly soaring through the starry night, only to catch fire as it rapidly descended seconds later.
 
Six years was a long time to get my heart under control. A lot has changed, and yet here I am, still drooling over Dawson—my ex best friend.

Somehow, at the ripe age of twenty-three, I find myself in line to marry a man I don’t love.
 
I grind my teeth right there at the dinner table as my mother and father go on and on about how proud they are of me. How proud they are that I, Fallon Addington, will no longer be the black sheep of the family and become the daughter they’ve always wanted.
 
Marry Derek and they’ll finally accept me.
Marry Derek and they’ll stop shoving men from their social circle in my direction.
Marry Derek and become the spitting image of my mother—the perfect corporate wife with a face full of make-up and not a hair out of line.

Too many secrets. Too many dangers. And he's got a mission to accomplish.
 
Eli Austin is going off the grid. Too long in the underground employ of men he'd sooner spit on than obey, his master plan for breaking free is intact. But before he goes, he has to appease his heart and soul one last time. He's got to see the house he and his high school sweetheart, Tish, almost bought. Relive the Christmas they never had, before he walked out on her, into the dark night without a word, so many years ago.
 
Tish Taylor's been through it all. After that horrendous Christmas, she moved on, married. But the rebound is over, and she's newly divorced. She's going back to where she had it all - once - to spend a solitary evening in the abandoned house where three years ago, they were going to start their new life. The sweet old house that called to them, the life that was theirs. She's got to reclaim the woman she was then - full of dreams, and promises. So she can move on, once and for all.
 
So they both set out to that old house, now in the worst part of town.

She's city. The more designer and fluffier, the better.
He's a closed-off butcher in a small northern Canadian town.
 
Emily Gates is hip. If a bag's got more than three zeros in its price tag - she's in. Cream is her favorite color. And her new role as junior city planner in the city of Toronto has her excited beyond all reason. For the gal with the troubled past - something she carefully keeps a secret - it's all about building community now. Even though she loves working and living in the upscale, trendy area just east of Bloor and Yonge.
 
Rufus Richardson isn't fancy and his job is dirty. And he's always trying to slay the damn dragons, even when no one wants him to. He should settle for a local gal, one who's used to country and mosquitos and wild animals poking around the family homestead. Instead, the moment he sees the vivacious city beauty, his heart tumbles, and his warrior's sword appears. But she doesn't need him to slay any dragons, and lets him know in no uncertain terms.
 
But when the life she's carefully curated falls apart suddenly and she goes off into the dark northern night alone searching for the meaning that's always eluded her, they find themselves thrown together, the night before Christmas Eve. On Ruf's annual infamous northern Candy Cane Run, and...
 
Everything changes.

She's high society. He's blue collar.
And he's only got one night to prove to her... blue collar is better.
 
WARNING: Graphic language, swearing, and frank sexual descriptions.
Oh. And chocolate truffles, velcro'd bondage straps, Manolos, and a bit of grime.
 
She wears a delivery uniform, but it won't be for long. Alex Jordan is determined. She'll work hard - do anything - to get her family back to its former wealth and standing in Toronto society. Once a solid member of the tennis club set, everything fell apart when her father was convicted of white collar crime. Life is harsh now, but Intimate Deliveries, her small company and brainchild of a delivery service is the vehicle to restore their lives. She'll build her brand, work her fingers to the bone, and she knows she'll achieve her goal. Eventually. She has to.
 
But she's also got her eye on rich and handsome Montreal playboy Luc Etalier. If she scores the heartthrob as a husband, her dreams will be realized all the faster. She'll get them all back to their former glory and ease of life - including her father, once he's released - one way or another.
 
He's blue collar, has sworn off alcohol, and she's lit his dreams of something more. Rand Peters has watched - and salivated - every time the brash young woman has come in to their machine shop to work the account. She's fueled his sexual fantasies for over a year, but she's also inspired him to go back to university part-time and work on that business degree. If she can go for what she wants, a former rich girl now in the trenches with the rest of them, so can he. And he's also seen something in her - working so hard in a life that's foreign to her - that touches his heart.
 
But a relationship? She'd never go for him - though something eggs him on to try. First real chance he gets, he will. He has to.
 
Now it's New Year's Eve, and he's there alone. Alex comes in with a delivery, ready to do her job and then run to her glamorous NYE party with old friends. But miracle of miracles - it's the wrong part. They'll have to wait for the new one. Together...

Northern Lights by Breanna hayse

 
 
Lena 
Northern Lights Book 1 
by Breanna Hayse 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
 
Publisher: Twisted Hearts Productions 
Publication Date: April 12, 2019
 
 
From the #1 US/International Best-Selling Author who launched the Age-Play Phenomenon- the debut of: 
NORTHERN LIGHTS©: LENA 
 
What does a little prima ballerina do when she falls in love with three gorgeous Daddy Doms while in the brand-new, isolated, age-play community of Northern Lights, Alaska? 
 
Russian raised and trained to be prima for the Bolshoi, Lena wasn’t prepared for the new life waiting for her—a life filled with candy apples, a castle fit for a princess, and three handsome men to love on her and make all her dreams come true. Most of all, she’s allowed to discover, and enjoy, the little girl hidden inside of her heart. 
 
After being kidnapped and held hostage by the Russia Mafia to convince her selfish, greedy father to sell them a synthesized drug, Lena’s brutal nightmare ends when four mysterious strangers rescue her. She's taken to heal in a tiny Alaskan town called Northern lights where she discovers that the physical wounds she suffered were only the beginning of drastic, but amazing, changes to her life. 
 
While in the hospital, she calls upon ‘Daddy’ to help her. Athabaskan-born Stefan Markford, one of the town’s founders, is smitten! He refused to leave her side for a moment and begins to share a way of life so unlike anything she encountered back in Moscow. 
 
Stefan's joined by his twin brother Sean, and older brother, Tony. The three strong Daddy Doms are devoted to making their little ballerina smile again, with music, dollhouses, and of course- candy apples. They also discover that their new Little girl has a defiant streak—one that requires old-fashioned discipline. As their love grows, the door opens for another new world for the young woman to explore—a world of wonder, sensation, and the freedom and joy of sexuality. 
 
Be prepared to laugh, cry, rejoice, and get hot and bothered as you join Lena’s adventure in this first installment of Northern Lights.

BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I'm a native Californian gone 'wild', and had the opportunity to travel the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.
 
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving. Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
 
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time, I've devoted my 'spare' time to writing, researching, community involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
 
I was formally 'dungeon trained' as a Domme before discovering my submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled primarily from either personal experience or observation, including spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on 'the real deal.'
 
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear), and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John can't find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.
