The Atomic City Girls by Janet Beard

TourBanner_Atomic

BLURB:

In the bestselling tradition of Hidden Figures and The Wives of Los Alamos, comes this riveting novel of the everyday people who worked on the Manhattan Project during World War II.

“What you see here, what you hear here, what you do here, let it stay here.”

In November 1944, eighteen-year-old June Walker boards an unmarked bus, destined for a city that doesn’t officially exist. Oak Ridge, Tennessee has sprung up in a matter of months—a town of trailers and segregated houses, 24-hour cafeterias, and constant security checks. There, June joins hundreds of other young girls operating massive machines whose purpose is never explained. They know they are helping to win the war, but must ask no questions and reveal nothing to outsiders.

The girls spend their evenings socializing and flirting with soldiers, scientists, and workmen at dances and movies, bowling alleys and canteens. June longs to know more about their top-secret assignment and begins an affair with Sam Cantor, the young Jewish physicist from New York who oversees the lab where she works and understands the end goal only too well, while her beautiful roommate Cici is on her own mission: to find a wealthy husband and escape her sharecropper roots. Across town, African-American construction worker Joe Brewer knows nothing of the government’s plans, only that his new job pays enough to make it worth leaving his family behind, at least for now. But a breach in security will intertwine his fate with June’s search for answers.

When the bombing of Hiroshima brings the truth about Oak Ridge into devastating focus, June must confront her ideals about loyalty, patriotism, and war itself

Mail Ordered Bride by Tory Baker

Title: Mail Ordered Bride
Author: Tory Baker
Genre: Romance
Release Date: February 7, 2018

In the wilds of Alaska single women are few and far between. An online site to find the perfect bride seems ridiculous, but Stone is willing to give it a try. 

As he looks at Carly’s pictures and reads her words, he’s convinced she’s the one. 

He spends his nights imagining what it will be like to finally touch her, to sink inside and hear her cry out his name. 

When she finally gets there she’ll be lucky if he doesn’t tie her to his bed. 
Too bad the woman getting off the plane is not the one he agreed to marry.

I am Brant Ashley, and this is my truth.

My whole life is a lie.

She’s the first person to ever see me clearly, to see through my lies to the truth hidden behind my steel blue eyes. 

I am Brant Ashley, and this is my truth.

Beyond Jerusalem by Yvonne Crowe

BLURB:BookCover_Beyond_Jerusalem_kindle

Nicolina Fabiani and David Baron team up once again to save Jerusalem from itself.

Now David is faced with an impossible choice.

Duty on the one hand, love on the other.

What choice will he make?

In the Eternal struggle for Palestine, David wages war, and Lina the journalist, covers it

Excerpt One:

With his arms and legs secured to a metal chair, he was at the mercy of his captors and they were not in a benign mood.

A soldier on either side, dressed in army fatigues untied him, then dragged him down a flight of stairs and along a long narrow tunnel.

Into a corridor painted green with low iron doors on either side. Solid bolts securing them shut.

I am a successful writer who enjoys writing provocative mystery/thriller novels including the popular Nicolina Fabiani series.

Cover Reveal–Forbidden Attraction by Siera London

Title: Forbidden Attraction
Series: Forbidden Series
Author: Siera London
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 13, 2018

Recently divorced, Sarah Jones no longer looks forward to the cupid and candy holiday. With her shattered heart and designer swimsuit in tow, she plans a little vacation to Adventure Cove Resort and Spa. It’s just the respite she needs from inquiring minds. 

Quiet and brooding, Deputy Lance Stevens wants to be left alone with the pain of his past mistakes, but his family has other ideas. This contrived vacation is another family intervention he plans to squash, that is until Sarah zips into his life. 

What’s meant to be Sarah’s escape turns into a steamy attraction to a man who’s too young, and too determined to get what he wants-her. Lance is forbidden in more ways than one and Sarah is harboring a secret that could destroy more than their budding romance. What happens when Ms. Jones realizes there’s more than a Valentine’s Day fling going on?

 

Siera London is a bestselling author of contemporary romance and romantic suspense. She crafts stories of diverse characters navigating the challenges and triumphs to find lasting love. Intelligence, wit, emotion, drama, and sensual romance are between the covers of every Siera London novel. Siera lives in California with her husband, and a color patch tabby named Frie.

Someone In The Way–Rachel Del

Title: Someone in the Way
Series: Someone in the Way #1
Author: Rachel Del
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 10, 2018 

Lily Gardner thought she’d found her soul mate when she met and married the handsome and well-off Thomas Gardner. But now, thirty, with a four-year-old son, Lily finds herself wading through the messy waters of divorce and single motherhood, crying herself to sleep at night wondering if she’s just lost her only chance at love—and herself in the process.


 

Nathan Trainor always falls for the wrong women—and Lily is no exception. But now that she’s practically single Nate knows this could be his only chance to prove history wrong. 

When Lily and Nate are assigned the task of signing a bestselling author who is rumored to be seeking new representation, Lily must put her troubles aside and do whatever it takes to get the job done. And Nate might just get his chance to write his own happy ending.

At once heartbreaking and hopeful, Someone In The Way captures what it feels like to be given a second chance at life—and love.

Someone In The Way was previously published as Finding Lily, but has been entirely re-written and will be re-releasing January 2018.
Someone In The Way is a standalone but can also be read as book 1 in the series.

 

Rachel Del is a head-in-the-clouds introvert, homebody and thirty-something writer currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada with her husband and son. Originally from Ontario, Canada she works in publishing and enjoys a cold glass of Chardonnay, road trips and singing in the shower.

 


 

Rachel started writing in 1991 with her first journal … and never stopped. She wrote her first novel in the 6th grade, something hopelessly sappy and laced with spelling mistakes.

When she isn’t working or writing, you can find her chasing after her son, reading or sipping on black coffee.
