has to come clean about his past before the woman he loves finds out
what he’s been hiding and turns tail to run…

#Spotlight #Giveaway – Silver Dagger Book Tours Celebration

Silver Dagger Book Tours is now 2
years old this month!
Believe it or not, Silver Dagger Book
Tours was created and is mainly operated by just one person!
I used to be just an internet crawler
looking for new books and giveaways and stumbled upon book tours.
After indulging in many dozens of tours, I decided I’d like to try my
hand at blogging in my spare time (with absolutely no blogging
experience at all!) I was a book blogger for several companies (and
still am) and stuck with it for over 3 years. In that time, I learned
all the ropes and became a pretty efficient blogger, but there was
still something missing- I wanted to make my posts stand out a bit!
So, I started creating small graphics like “about the book” and
the other standard graphics that you see in all my tours nowadays and
started jazzing my posts up.
I became pregnant with my second child
in the fall of 2015 and me and my hubby decided to try to purchase
our first home finally, so I quit my waitressing job to pack up
everything for the move and never looked back!
It took several months of trying to get
the ball rolling and was quite difficult at first to get authors to
tour with me. Thus, I had an idea to let everybody pay what they can
comfortably afford instead of set rates as I thought what some other
companies charged were just outrageous!
Since then, I have done over 1000 tours
and worked with hundreds of amazing authors – many who come back
for repeat tours! I have 2-3 tours kick off every weekday with
occasional tours on the weekends and EVERY tour is required to have a
giveaway so readers can gain a little something and have fun while
they enjoy learning about new books.
I have an absolutely amazing group of
bloggers that share my tours on their sites and really couldn’t have
gotten this far without their continued support and would like to
thank each and every one of them! Ya’ll are amazing! I also have two
assistants that help me check links and keep up with blogger activity
– Janet, who’s been with me over a year, and Laurie, who is a new
addition. Ya’ll ladies are spectacular and I couldn’t do it without
you!
Absolutely everything else is
completely run solely by me though and I really enjoy organizing
tours and helping new authors get discovered. I don’t discriminate
and host ALL fictional genres in ALL age ranges as me and my bloggers
have a broad range of readers that enjoy many different genres.
After two years of astronomical tours,
I am going stronger than ever now and growing on a daily basis with
plans to continue hosting tours for many many years!
If you are an author interested in
booking a tour with me, you can see a general FAQ page and booking

joining some of my tours, you can see my current sign ups HERE!

A third generation local of the
historic town of Fredericksburg, TX, I was born and raised among the
rolling hills of the Texas Hill Country where the beauty of the
landscape is breathtaking and town is famous for the Main Street historic
shopping district, the best peaches in the world, wildflowers and
wine. I really can’t imagine living anywhere else!
A country girl through and through, I
grew up hunting, fishing and digging for Indian artifacts, all the
while enjoying the many rivers and swimming holes around town. I’m a
stay at home mom with three beautiful boys, ages 9, 2, and 1 that
encompass my entire world!
A bookaholic from birth, I have always
had a deep passion for reading and spend many late nights devouring
books into the wee hours of the morning. My “real” book
collection numbers over 3000 books and take up an entire small room
in our house with custom bookshelves built by my husband that I call
my “book cave”. I’ve been building this collection since my
childhood and will keep on adding to it for the rest of my life. Of
course, I also have a similar collection of ebooks as well as I
finally went digital a few years ago.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading,
playing with my kids, doing DIY renovation projects with my husband,
cooking, and relaxing on my back porch with a good cup of coffee
while I watch the massive axis deer herd come through the yard.

 

#BlogTour #Giveaway – HOT TIDE SERIES by Michele De Winton

Another Shot With Summer
Hot Tide Book 1
by Michele De Winton
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy
He broke her heart like a cheap surfboard…can he win her back?
After an accident stole his surfing career, Ashton Evans has a chance to
reinvent his life by photographing the leaders of the World Surfing
League. The problem? Summer Roberts is his first client. Now the
woman he can’t forget is spending long, hot Indonesian days in
front of his lens. In a bikini. And worse, she’s steaming up his nights.
But no matter how tempting Summer is, Ashton must keep his hands to
himself. For the sake of her career, Summer is pretending she’s
still in a relationship with someone else. Being seen with Ashton
could blow her chance at making it onto the World Surfing League
leader board for good. But with their attraction as unstoppable as
one of the giant ocean waves that rule their lives, will they be
tumbled under by it? Or will Ashton finally get his second shot with
Summer?
Get ready for a wet, hot ride.
Making Over Maya
Hot Tide Book 2
This Cinderella isn’t supposed to end up with the Wolfe.
Maya Taylor is all sass and style when it comes to closing a PR deal, but
when it comes to men, she has about as much witty banter as a
drowning grommet. So when fashion mogul, Dominic Wolfe, enters her
life, he seems to be bringing the perfect deal.
She’ll teach him all there is to know about the highly competitive side of
surf sponsorship. And in return, Dominic will turn the beautiful
surf-klutz into a man-magnet. Dream deal, right?
Only the lessons start getting hotter than the beach mid-summer and
Dominic realizes he wants more. Much more. But the deal was their
relationship wouldn’t cross the line between business and pleasure…
It’s no wonder that Michele’s first romance has a little sparkle of the
stage tucked into its pages as she was a performer long before she
got adicted to the page. Being a writer was not what she was supposed
to be when she ‘grew up’ but then neither was a dancer. Her poor
parents. They thought that when she toddled off to law school they’d
bred a responsible, useful adult and instead they got a performer and
word junkie.
She now writes full time in a studio surrounded by the whisper of wind
in the trees and only intermittent interruptions from her young son, husband and
hunger pangs. She’s based in New Zealand (land of beaches and
hobbits) loves chocolate, yoga, sunshine, her boys and happy endings.

The Determined You
Only You Book 2
Heroes paint the big screen, but a violent opponent interferes with true
love, driving one actor to prove he’s more than a script.

 

Easy-going Lil Reed is like every red-blooded female would be: excited to meet
her first Hollywood A-lister. After all, Grey Richards is the talk of
the town. And she’s the lucky one; his brother is marrying into her
family. But Lil quickly learns an age-old lesson: be careful what you
wish for. Grey is nothing like the charismatic and charming
characters he portrays. This heartthrob is surly, arrogant, and
completely closed off.
With no patience for gossip-reading fan girls, Grey is far from interested
in the youngest Reed sister. And a guy like Grey would never date
outside the elite Hollywood circles. That would be career suicide.
However, when there’s a threat against the Reed sisters, Grey feels compelled
to protect the spunky and adorable woman who somehow wiggled her way
into his heart. With danger closing in, Grey must save the sisters
and prove to Lil that there’s more behind the glamour and glitz. But
will she ignore the fake tabloids for a chance at real love?

monitor every move gives Trinity the courage to fulfill her dreams.
But now, her brothers’ enemies have a new target: Her.
Finding solace at the bottom of a bottle, Tim Rhodes is still struggling with
his wife’s death. Encountering the beautiful and assertive Trinity
puts him on edge. After all, he has no intentions of ever falling in
love again. Love only breeds pain–and too much of it. The last thing
he needs is another woman in his life.
When Trinity’s life is threatened, Tim’s torn between his past and what
could possibly be his future. Now, it’s up to him to confront his
demons and fight for the woman he wants. Can he bury his pain and
save Trinity before it’s too late?

#BlogTour #Giveaway – UNSCREWED by Ren Alexander

Unscrewed
by Ren Alexander
Genre: Contemporary Romance
The myth, the man, the legend.
Yeah. I’m none of that crap.
Okay. I’m a man. There’s that much.
Almost everyone calls me Rod, whether I like it or not. I’m the guy others
look to for a laugh, a dirty joke, a distraction—the office clown.
Even my best friend, Hadley, laughs.
It’s just that, I’m not always laughing. Not even on the inside. Nobody
knows the real Greg or the agony I hide with humor. My recently dead
sister had a clue, but she’s in no position to blab. I screwed up
big time—then and now—but it’s all my undoing. Through
everything, Hadley’s been my cure and my curse. And I fell in love
with my married best friend. But she wasn’t always married, and I
wasn’t always broken.
I had a millisecond of a chance, but I blew it, siding with morality.
What guy does that? And sailing that sinking ship all the way down, I
sacrificed my wants for her needs. Doing that, I fathered a kid with
the office trouser troll. Stupid? Hell to the yes. Because now,
regardless of the grand total, I want something I can’t have.
Integrity and my sanity be damned.
But nobody, especially Hadley, can know the real Greg Rodwell, my
tortured soul, my unashamed love, or my darkest truth, because it
wouldn’t just blow her mind.
It would rock our damn world.
