Book Talk Diana Gabaldon

Image
I have found a new author to obsess over. I have fallen in love with Diana and her amazing writing. 

Diana is the author of the Outlander Series: Outlander, Dragonfly In Amber, Voyager, Drums Of Autumn, Fiery Cross, A Breath Of Snow And Ashes, An Echo In The Bone, and Written In My Own Heart's Blood. 


Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-bestselling OUTLANDER novels, described by Salon magazine as “the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting “Scrooge McDuck” comics.”

The series is published in 26 countries and 23 languages, and includes a nonfiction (well, relatively) companion volume, THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION, which provides details on the settings, background, characters, research, and writing of the first novels in the series. Gabaldon (it’s pronounced “GAA-bull-dohn”—rhymes with “stone”) has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey (a major minor character fro…

Having made it to the major leagues, A.J. “Rage” Romero is determined to shake the stigma his temper has earned him over the years.  He’s finally managed a shaky hold of that elusive self-control.

Until he meets them . . .

Without warning, his coach and mentor’s brilliantly gifted granddaughter Clair and her equally amazing mother Addison Cabrera blow into A.J.’s life.  The harder he falls for Addison, the closer and more attached he becomes to Clair.

SINS OF SEVIN

(A standalone)

A Contemporary Romance novel

New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Penelope Ward 

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2015  From the New York Times bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, comes a new forbidden STANDALONE romance.

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I’d accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since the one wasn’t Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.
My name is Sevin, and I…

Life isn't easy. Love is harder.  Love cuts, love burns and sometimes love breaks.
But living a half-life, living with regrets, that’s no life at all.  People say we’re broken, not like other people.  Maybe that’s true—ability, disability—what’s in a word?  So whatever the world throws at us, we won’t stop, we won’t crumble.  When we love, we love hard. Love without limits.  Unconditional is an Anthology from authors Stacey Wallace Benefiel, Jane Harvey-Berrick, Sarina Bowen, Mary Elizabeth, D.Hart, Amber L. Johnson, CJ Lyons, Lauren K. McKellar, Shay Savage, and Magan Vernon.

Autumn Rising


Autumn Mahal and Hank Basara know they should stay away from each other. Both recovering from the loss of a mutual friend, and each bearing scars of their own, they know their love would look like a worn cliché, a trite romance novel for teens, some crappy made-for-TV movie languishing on your great aunt’s DVR. 
But as summer gives way to September and flirtation leads to something deeper, they learn there are some types of love you cannot run from, no matter how hard you try to flee.

Hilarious, heartbreaking and hopeful, Autumn Rising is a novella about the happiness we ruin for ourselves, the truths we can’t hide with a filter, and that elusive and victorious moment when we let love rush in and carry us to the sky.  In a world of constant TMI, prepare to feel a story worth sharing – a story that will stay with you long after the summer fades to autumn.


Review
Autumn Rising is the perfect follow up to The Summer Remains.

Blitz; Lay Your Hands On Me

Brand-new New Adult Rock Star Romance  from USA Today-Bestselling Author Blair Babylon!

Xan Valentine, the rock star that Rolling Stone called “sex incarnate,” stands in the spotlight every night and sings love songs to the women in the audience. They swoon. They scream. They believe him.They don’t know him like Georgie does.
They’ve never seen him nearly beat two men to death until someone pulled him off. They’ve never seen the coldness in his dark eyes when he sat across a table, negotiating a contract that broke their hearts.
He’s never stolen into their bedroom at night, slid into their bed, and made love to them until dawn, and he’s never treated them like it never happened while the bitemarks on their backs and thighs were still sore.
They’ve never seen him play the violin like an angel.
Or a demon.
Georgie is officially in his band now, playing the keyboards, and every concert drives the music deeper into her soul. If Georgie leaves the protection of the band and Xan Valentine, t…

Title: Kick, Push

Author: Jay McLean

Release Day: August 4, 2015

 There’s a single defining moment within every skater.
 It lasts only a second. Two if you're good.
 Three if you’re really good.
 It’s the moment you’re in the air, your board somewhere beneath you, and  nothing but wind surrounds you.
 It’s the feeling of being airborne.

 The sixteen-year-old version of me would’ve said it was the greatest feeling in the world.


 Then at seventeen, I had my son.
 And every single second became a defining moment.
 Even the ones that consisted of heartbreak when his mother left us.

 Seventeen. Single. Dad.
That’s what my life became.
Yet, every day, I managed to find that feeling of being airborne.
Or at least I convinced myself I did.
But I lied—to myself and to everyone around me.
Until she showed up; Tanned skin, raven dark hair, and eyes the color of emeralds.

You know what sucks about being in the air?

Coming down from the high.
Sometimes you land on the board a…
