About the Author ~ Lucy Naylor Kubash

I remember making up stories in my head when I was just a kid. In junior high, a few of my friends and I wrote what is now called fan fiction. We wrote stories about our favorite characters on TV. I started writing a historical romance about that time, which remains unfinished, and always enjoyed the writing assignments in school (when everyone else hated them, lol!). I started writing contemporary romance when my children were small and sold my first short story to Woman’s World magazine thirty-six years ago. Those stories are now included in five anthologies available at Amazon. Why did I start writing? I love reading and writing just seemed to be an extension of that, plus I always felt writing lets me live other lives, even if just vicariously.

I’ve always loved stories with a romance or love interest. I like happy endings. As a teen, because I couldn’t find much romance in my local library, I read biographies of presidents and their wives. Then I started reading Phyllis Whitney’s romantic suspense and Victoria Holt’s gothic romance. For contemporary, I enjoy Kathleen Eagle, Karen White (love her ghost stories), and Luanne Rice. My friend Rosanne Bittner writes fabulous western historical romance, so I try to keep up with them. While I do like an HEA, I also like mystery and crime and am reading Margaret Coel’s Wind River mysteries, Sharyn McCrumb’s Appalachian books, and the Craig Johnson Longmire books.

Book Promo ~ Committee of Angels

A medical drama with a touch of romance

The article passed around the table on a hot August night. “Five to ten percent of the nation’s doctors are so impaired or incompetent they cannot or should not practice medicine.” The nurses at Bradley Memorial thought they had them all. That night they formed a group they called The Committee of Angels.

Nearly a year has passed and Laura Bancroft wonders why little has been done to change things. She also wonders about some of the nurses fitting the pattern. Laura has three doctors on her list of incompetents. She seldom meets with the other members and several of the others are upset with her. When her ex-husband joins the medical staff, she realizes she still has feelings for him. One of her list of doctors dies after emergency surgery and Laura finds her suspected since she was assigned to the doctor. She must deal with suspicions, her feelings for her ex. Then a second on her list commits suicide and speaks of blackmail.

Can Laura learn the truth of who is responsible before she faces arrest?

Murder and mayhem with doctors and nurses spike a nicely paced ‘who dunnit.’ Ms. Walters pens the most intriguing characters, and this story pacts a punch bowl full of them.
Excellent gripping read with a surprise and satisfying ending. Couldn’t put the book down once I started. Highly recommended for anyone who likes mysteries and medical dramas with a nice touch of romance.

THE BAYOU BAD BOYS – BOOK 3

A sweeping New Orleans romance of wild passion, dark secrets
and forbidden love from Kathleen Bittner Roth.

Returning home to his beloved New Orleans after months in Jamaica, Bastien Thibodeaux reluctantly agrees to take two passengers on board his ship—an older English gentleman tending his ailing younger wife, Lily. That’s their story, at least. But as Bastien uses his skills as a Cajun healer to help Lily, he becomes convinced of two things: She is not who she claims to be. And though she may be out of bounds for the illegitimate son of a bayou priestess, their attraction is decidedly mutual.

When Lily’s father bequeathed her his entire estate, he unwittingly made her a target. She barely escaped England alive, aided by her godfather. New Orleans holds both temptation and danger as she convalesces in Bastien’s lavish residence. A single night together is all she dares allow. But once they succumb, there can be no denying this desire, or how much they’ll risk in its name.

LILY, book 3 in Kathleen’s Bayou Bad Boy series
is a finalist in the Historical Romance division

Kathleen considers writing historical romance a wonderful venue for creating characters faced with difficult choices, and who are forced to draw on their strength of spirit in order to overcome adversity and find unending love. She has been a frequent guest on radio, television, and on various writing blogs. She has won or been a finalist in numerous writing contests.

The Ladies of Sommer by the Sea Book 3

Kindle Edition

Could she use her skills as a lockpick to crack open the secrets to the murder as well as unlock his heart?

Lady Katherine Thornton has no interest in men after an indiscretion at her disastrous Season in London. No man can be trusted. Instead, she indulges in her fascination for gears and all things mechanical. Her unique drafting skill is an asset to her uncle Bennett Sutton, who is automating his textile factory. She doesn’t need anything else.

Lord Ian Wallace, the 4th Duke of Blackhall, is a retired military officer. An accidental duke after the deaths of his father and brother, he retreats from society and the clawing mothers and debutantes who stalk him. He’s focused all his energy on his partnership with Sutton. He’s satisfied and needs nothing else.

An oath to marry, a family legend to preserve, an uprising of the factory workers, and Sutton’s murder, throw Katherine and Wallace together to find a blackmailer and murderer. They also will find two things neither knew they were missing… each other and their happily ever after.

Book Promo: The Dog Days of August

Two thousand miles apart, crimes are
committed targeting a famous geologist

WHY?

Unfortunately, people venture where they should not,
and their good intentions turn into bad results.

 

Charlie Guest is visiting the Grand Canyon with his wife, Sophia. As a geologist, he competes throughout the year with other scientists for grant money from the government and various charitable foundations. Charlie needs to expand his research by hiring more people and exploring new terrain. To do that, he needs to obtain a substantial part of the funding at this year’s conference in Las Vegas. In past years he’d done well at this conference. He had garnered seconds or thirds with the appropriate funding attached. His goal, of course, is a first-place award. It would get him the money he needs, along with prestige. On the way to Vegas, however, things happen that threaten his attendance and his life. What is happening, and why? What secrets are being kept, and who is keeping them? Hapless reasoning can end up getting people hurt, and good intentions can turn out poorly. On one of those hot, humid, and rainy days in August, events occur two thousand miles apart that threaten the lives of two families.

Book Promo: Measure Twice, Cut Once

Measure Twice, Cut Once:
Navigating Negativity in Toxic Relationships

 

Are you are tired of taking the blame for OPP (other people’s problems)? Are you are always the responsible party, always doing more than you should? Do you feel used, unloved, unheard, or unwanted? Are you are weary of feeling like a doormat or being dumped on? Are your relationships leaving you feeling exhausted, angry, or hurt? Are you always there to support and help others but left wondering where everyone is when you need the same?

There is an insidious and destructive force in each of our lives that we rarely investigate. Oftentimes we accept it because it comes with people, situations and circumstances that are familiar. It’s what we’ve become accustomed to and accept as the status quo. It is a blueprint that brings pain, often unbearable at times; along with self-defeating patterns that over time can become difficult to recognize or acknowledge. It strips us of our internal balance and peace of mind, devastating the mind, body, and spirit. It’s the thing that goes bump in the night, that keeps us awake as we ruminate over events, words, and actions. It’s the boogey man in our bed, in the meeting, in the marriage, in the friendship, in the family. It is something ONLY YOU have the power to change, yet many times you choose to stay in its grip, almost seeking it out, even as it causes great damage to your personhood. It is a self-made, self-destructive affliction, created by your own willingness to stay locked into the lure of it, even as it works against your health and well-being. It is TOXIC relationships!

Allison Kelly Jones’ passion is people and she opens up her life to help others gain clarity and focus of the behaviors we all exhibit with openness and honesty. Delivering a dual punch to the reality of how we are both co-creators of toxic behavior as well as targets of such behavior, she provides a no nonsense approach to dealing with situations, environments and relationships that require further examination to live authentically and boldly. Asking the hard questions is the key to a more rewarding and fulfilling life and those questions need to be asked and answered if you are not being true to yourself and need to find clarity and closure in relationships. Measure Twice, Cut Once, Navigating Negativity in Toxic Relationships is a quick, powerful and easy read that helps identify toxic behaviors and how to self-correct while teaching others how you want to be treated.
