Upon A Moonswept Tide…
Trapped in time…Ronan Garring is a man of action; a ship captain who has sailed the seas from Europe to the Caribbean…in the seventeenth century. When he is tricked by a sea nymph, he is sent to a deserted island in Poseidon’s realm to serve the gods for all time. On a mission to modern day Miami, he finds his earth home crawling with underworld evil and is waylaid by an enchanting human woman who seems to stall his attempts at completing his quest at every turn. He can’t be sure if she is an entirely innocent wrecking ball or the agent of a more sinister force. Against all his good intentions, he finds himself continually, albeit pleasantly, entangled with her both in this world and beyond.
Searching…for a friend whose gone missing, Cindy Pierce left the Rocky Mountains for the beaches of Miami to try to make sense of, what looks to be, a hopeless case. As the trail grows cold, she stumbles into an intriguing dark stranger and is literally knocked flat. Fierce and intense as he is, towering over her and exuding old world masculinity, she can’t help her body’s immediate response to him. When she finds herself being chased across the southern tip of Miami and into the Florida Keys by the handsome foreigner however, she’s convinced he’s not only psychotic but intent on doing her harm. Once she finds herself in his arms again though, her attraction to him can’t be denied and neither can the fact that he may be the only one who can save her from the dark forces at work on the beach.
Join the race to find the kings in Amanda V. Shane’s new Tides of Atlantis series and help them to discover their soul mates, the women who will win their lost hearts and help them fulfill their destiny!

***Excerpt from Crystal Tide
Xieran and Kay
“You can’t just throw me in there!” She screamed trying to fight him.
“Listen,” he said, his words vibrating through her skin, “until you can explain to me who you are and what you were doing in the Tides, you will stay right here.”
He moved into the room then set her down on her feet, being surprisingly gentle. Kay’s whole body felt weak and throbby now. She took in a shuddering breath trying to put some space between them so she could put a stop this insane physical attraction she was having to him. He was her freaking abductor for crying out loud!
He lowered his head, narrowing his eyes. That look made everything a hundred times worse.
“That’s what you think,” she said, over-doing the bravado. She couldn’t resist shaking her arms out, still tingling everywhere from having his hands on her.
He lifted a golden-brown eyebrow up at her, huffing out a short laugh like he knew her secret. Then he turned and closed the door behind him.
She decided right then to hate him.

Taking a little more off here in my second cover striptease before the big cover reveal tomorrow! Stay tuned for the full cover of Crystal Tide - Book 2 in the Tides of Atlantis series.

Blindfold...and not the sexy kind unfortunately. But that's where the read for this week comes in. This dramatic label might make you think of all kinds of nefarious possibilities for how the gentleman pictured ended up in his predicament. For me though, it brings to mind the novels I've read with tortured heroes. There's just something about following the male lead through all kinds of turmoil that make the reader fall in love with him all the more. Some authors write the tortured hero particularly well but none that I can think of is so gut wrenchingly abused as John Ruark (Ruark Beauchamp) from Kathleen E. Woodiwiss's Shanna. A blast from the past read to be sure and one of what I would definitely consider "a classic" among bodice ripper romance. Any woman who's read this book can probably relate when I say that throughout a good eighty percent of the read, I could have happily pushed Shanna off a cliff so that I could take care of poor John Ruark myself. :)
If you are a romance novel enthusiast, you have to read or have already read Shanna if only to be able to join the chorus of women everywhere who join me in this sentiment. Plus, Woodiwiss is a legend in the world of romance fiction and I just had to have one of her books on my blog. All of her books are great but Shanna is one of my favorites of hers because, well...sigh...Ruark.
If you're into drinking wine with your romance reads, The Prisoner Wine Company's Blindfold White Wine will set the tone. As always, happy Wine Wednesday and happy reading!
Also, stay tuned to the blog because I have a cover reveal coming up soon!
Here is a little cover striptease for you of Crystal Tide - Book 2 in the Tides of Atlantis series. Anika @ravenborncovers has outdone herself yet again and I am so excited for this cover reveal!
“That’s the funny thing about will…sometimes your own bumps up against that of another’s.” ~Xieran
Devastated by the loss of both parents and running scared after a break-in at her home, Kay Laurens jumps on the first plane out of Denver to meet up with, of all people, a love psychic for answers. On the tip of the Bermuda Triangle, she is swept up into the dark world of an ancient cult and sent on the ride of her life. Then her incense induced visions come to life in the form of an inter-world travelling, suspicious and sinfully hot agent for Mt. Olympus.
Xieran has no memory of who he was before being stolen by Hermes. The Greek god uses him to enter earth’s sphere under the guise of an affluent art dealer in search of an elusive artifact which, if he can find, will win him his freedom. When his latest mission is brought up short by a female grad student breaking through his complex travel system, he can’t help but be suspicious. With demon outbreaks, nefarious characters working with the Underworld and a power struggle of epic proportions going on, no one can be trusted.
As they are thrown into the Tides together, they set out on a whirlwind adventure racing through the streets of Rome, Miami and even Western Australia to chase down answers and win their freedom from the overbearing gods. Will they come to terms with destiny and conquer the evil taking over the Tides or succumb to the passion growing between them?
Join the forming crew of Poseidon’s defenders against the Underworld in book two of Amanda V. Shane’s Tides of Atlantis series!
Hi everyone! I wanted to do a short post today and tell you about something cool I did over the weekend. I was fortunate enough to get to hear fellow Colorado writer Wendy Terrien speak at the Parker Writers Group. Ms. Terrien writes YA Fantasy books and while this is a romance book blog, I really love to give shout outs to fellow authors. Especially authors from my own neck of the woods! Aaand, anything fantasy / paranormal creeper-like is all right in my book and something I will absolutely get excited about!
Author Wendy Terrien's debut novel, The Rampart Guards earned a Kirkus starred review and was named to Kirkus Reviews' Best Books of 2016. She is also RocKy Mountain Fiction Writers' 2017-2018 Independent Writer of the Year!
You can find out more about Wendy at www.wendyterrien.com and I've included the Amozon link at the bottom of the blurb below.
If you have kids who love fantasy, you should definitely get Ms. Terriens books for them. I know my own such kids will be looking for summer books to read. As you can probably guess, fantasy reigns supreme in our house so I will be picking up copies for them.
In other news, stay tuned this week for exciting happenings going on in the Tides world as we gear up for Crystal Tide. Hint, hint...I have a cover reveal coming up soon!
*** Named to Kirkus Reviews' Best Books of 2016 ***
** Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Award Finalist **
After his mom disappears, Jason Lex and his family move to a small town where he has no friends, no fun, no life. Things get worse when he’s chased by weird flying creatures that only he can see--Jason thinks he’s losing it.
But when Jason discovers new information about his family, he’s stunned to learn that creatures like Skyfish, Kappa, and the Mongolian Death Worm aren’t just stories on the Internet--they’re real and they live unseen alongside the human race. Many of these creatures naturally emit energy capable of incinerating humans. An invisible shield keeps these creatures hidden and protects the human race from their threatening force, but someone, or some thing, is trying to destroy it.
Unsure who he can trust, Jason is drawn into the fight to save the people closest to him, and he finds help in surprising places. Confronted with loss, uncertainty, and a devastating betrayal, Jason must make a gut-wrenching decision:
Who lives, and who dies.

And those guys at The Dirty Pure project look like an super industrious, anything-for-science kind of bunch so you know it will be good (the wine that is). Just have some!
