$50 Amazon eGift Card Giveaway: Under Gemini by Linda Hope Lee

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Under Gemini
by Linda Hope Lee

Adult Romantic Suspense
Paperback & ebook, 234 Pages
February 8th 2017 by The Wild Rose Press, Inc.

Reeling from the deaths of her ex-husband and their nine-year-old daughter, Meg Evans suspects foul play in the mysterious auto accident. Clues lead her to Gemini Island, where she goes undercover cataloging Northwest Indian artifacts while conducting her own investigation. She doesn’t count on having to work with the enigmatic and handsome Eric Richards.

Artifact expert Eric has hidden reasons for coming to Gemini, and he doesn’t relish working with anyone who might thwart his search for answers. Will they keep their true identities and their missions hidden? Or can they learn to trust each other and together discover Gemini’s terrible secret?

 
 
 
Excerpt:

Feet planted, apart, Eric stood beside Jones while he steered the boat. “How far’s the island?”

Jones kept his gaze focused on the water. “Not far.”

“You live on the island?”

“Most of the time.”

Eric leaned closer. “You look familiar. Thought maybe I’d seen you somewhere.” Actually, he was fishing to find out whether or not Jones was Nootlinga, as Norrie had been.

“Doubt it.” Jones gripped the wheel and clamped his jaw shut.

Okay, so much for that. . . . He glanced at Megan Evans sitting in the back of the boat. In her early thirties, she had thick, dark brown hair drawn into a ponytail. Large brown eyes and a softly rounded chin gave her a vulnerable look. An air of sadness surrounded her, too. Something bad had happened, and not long ago.

A sharp swerve of the boat caused him to adjust his footing and snapped him to attention. They had reached Gemini and were headed around to the far side, where a wide bay accommodated several docks and half a dozen boats of various sizes. At anchor sat a yacht large enough to navigate the ocean. Yep, old Carl had a few bucks, all right.

Jones cut the engine and eased the Kawanti into an empty spot at one of the docks.

While Eric helped Jones secure the lines, he noticed Meg carefully stepping off the boat. He considered lending a hand again, but decided not to. She appeared to be doing okay on her own. Besides, he’d been all too aware of his pulse spike when he lifted her aboard. He needed to put a lid on that. He was on a mission, and attraction was something he didn’t need.

He refocused on tying up the boat, but the next time he glanced her way, he saw her watching him. Instead of looking away, she lifted her chin and met his gaze, as though issuing a challenge. A challenge to what, he didn’t know, but he’d bet he’d find out soon enough.

Bible Journaling: Week 6

bible

Hello and welcome! I hope you and yours have had a beautiful week. Our was interesting. I have to go back to the doctor this week for another test. Praying it turns out well!

Here are the pages I Bible journaled this past week:

IMG_20170205_121943_663

My first double page layout! As soon as I saw it I knew it had to give it a distress look. Once I colored in the background I used the distress inks to add color to the details on the page.

Another page I use distress inks on. I am not sure what inspired me to use just blues but I like the feel of this page once I had finished. I use silver gel pen to go over the light doodles that were already around this verse.

My youngest son made this early Valentine picture for my Hubby and I. He is such a sweetie!

The last page I completed this week I used Gelatos for the first time. They are so much fun to use but I clearly need some practice with them!

I am loving this new coloring book called  A Garland of Grace and colored pencils I picked up this week. The colored pencils are by Jane Davenport and I love how well they blend and the colors are lovely. Just wish there was a bigger set with more of a color selection.

Returned Trilogy ReturnedReturned

by Kimberley Griffiths Little

After tragedy strikes on the day they were to wed, Jayden must support Kadesh as he ascends the throne and becomes king of Sariba. But with the dark priestess Aliyah conspiring to control the crown, and the arrival of Horeb, Jayden’s former betrothed, Kadesh’s kingdom, as well as his status as king, is at stake. Jayden knows that the time to be merciful has come and gone, and that some enemies can only be halted by death.

Now she and Kadesh must prepare to fight not only for their love, but also for their kingdom. This is the final book in the epic trilogy that began with Forbidden and Banished. Jayden and Kadesh’s love will be put to the ultimate test as they fight a war to save their kingdom.  

amazon   Praise for the Book   Booklist (starred review) “At its core, this is a romance, with all the push and pull that goes along with impossible love, and Little elevates the story by creating a perilous landscape, both outward and inward, as Jayden must deal with the hardship of desert life as well as her own desires. . . descriptions of the landscape are evocative in both desolation and in beauty. Just as good is the pacing, which gets the blood pumping for both characters and readers. This will heighten anticipation for a no-doubt exciting conclusion.”  

Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books “Rich historical details are deftly woven into Jayden’s narration, and the dynamics of Jayden’s tribe are vividly drawn. Jayden’s story becomes as much about finding herself as it is about finding love.”   Reader: “This book took my breath away. I loved the immersive story and the rich setting of ancient Mesopotamia. The customs, traditions, and beliefs of the desert people were captivating and every time I set the book down I couldn’t wait to pick it up again. I’ve never read anything like this before.”   Reader: “Forbidden was so captivating that I awoke early in the morning, while my family was still sleeping, so I could finish the last pages of this beautifully haunting tale.”  

 

Excerpt:

A private garden had been created on top of the temple’s roof. Palm trees swayed along the perimeter. Life-size statues of the Goddess stood at each corner. A fountain sprayed, and the air was perfumed by beds of azaleas and exotic orchids along the brick pathways. Cozy furniture sat in groupings under pergolas for shade.

“It’s beautiful,” my handmaiden whispered, transfixed.

Racing to the railing, I reeled at the magnificent view. The rooftop garden sat on the southeast corner of the temple. I gazed at the ocean cliffs and the expanse of the city down below the sloping hills.

Running to the northwest corner next, I spotted the groves of frankincense orchards, banked against the valley of the Qara Mountains. I shaded my eyes, reeling at the sight of so many newly erected black-and-white tents in the foothills of those mountains.

My heart was in my throat. Too many tents to count. At least a thousand camels.

Hundreds of horses.

Horeb’s armies camped and preparing for battle.
