The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon #happyreleaseday #fivestarreview

Amy Harmon is taking us back to the land of Jeru in her next novel in The Bird and The Sword Chronicles, The Queen and The Cure releasing today, May 9, 2017.  

I would highly recommend you read The Bird and The Sword prior to The Queen and the Cure.  Each book has it’s own main characters and story but to really get the full enjoyment of Jeru, you should read them in order.

I would recommend this series to readers 16 years and older.

The Queen and The Cure, Amy Harmon - Print

Way more than FIVE Star review:

Amy Harmon is an amazing unique storyteller and I’m so grateful and honored to be able to read her words.  The Queen and the Cure was absolute perfection! Amy’s world of Jeru and the people I met along the way are intriguing, heartwarming, wonderful people, who fill your soul with sunshine.  I want to go to Jeru and hang out with each and every one of them.

In this novel, Kjell goes on an adventure over land and sea and discovers a few things about himself that he never knew.  It was wonderful to watch his story and character grow and bloom.  Kjell meets Sasha along the way and her story has a few twists and turns as well.  These two characters pulled me in and took me on a journey I will never forget.  There were moments of laughter, moments of sorrow and most of all moments of love.  I am so looking forward to more adventures from the land of Jeru.

Kjell does a little “singing” along the way and this is one of my favorite songs:  “Heave ho, back we go, the ale is coming to ya.  Heave ho, back it goes, ale is flowing through ya.”

So don’t wait, go out right now and one-click The Queen and the Cure.  I promise you will not be disappointed.

A glimpse of The Queen and the Cure:

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He’d never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

Block_Tackle_ebook_HiRes

My Four Star Review:

This was a really great Sports Romance Anthology with three stories revolving around The Prestige Media Group.  Each story has a happily ever after, strong characters and fun romance.  They are the first stories I’ve read by these authors but I look forward to checking out more stories by these ladies.

I would highly recommend this anthology.

More About Block & Tackle:

Offsides by Elise Faber

Job title:
Executive Assistant for CEO of Prestige Media Group

Job description:
(1) Deal with a massive amount of emails.
(2) Schedule conference calls and meetings with top athletes and other hugely important people.
(3) Pick up dry cleaning and food, consult on tie selection, make dinner reservations, and book flights . . . basically act as a wife-on-steroids.
(4) THE IMPORTANT ONE: Do not, under any circumstances, fall in love with Devon Scott—demanding boss, former NHL player, and all-around gorgeous specimen of the male persuasion.

Job performance:
Failing.
Absolutely failing at number four.

Off Guard by Stephanie Fournet

Life couldn’t be better for Charlie Woodruff.

After a year of holding out, she’s finally landed the job she’s always wanted in the city of her dreams. An apartment she can afford and new friends at work make the transition easy.
When she meets a gorgeous stranger who makes her laugh and steals her breath, it seems like the icing on the cake…

Until Charlie discovers he’s a client.

Hutch Barlow — newly drafted wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders — looks like an avenging angel, hangs on her every word, and is completely off-limits. The trouble is he also refuses to take “no” for an answer.

And if she’s being honest, Charlie doesn’t want him to.
But seeing him means she could lose everything — including her heart.

Off Limits by Kristin Vayden

Everything about Ava screams off limits.
To want her is to invite disaster.
To pursue her is to risk my job.
To kiss her might cost me my best friend.
But all those risks seem small in light of the first problem.
She hates me.

To her I’m a sell out, choosing to advance my career rather than protect my biggest client.
Her brother.
And my best friend.
She hasn’t spoken to me in over a year, but that ends now.
Because I’m done with holding back.
To hell with the consequences.
Wish me luck . . .

Bossed by Sloane Howell

Bossed by Sloane Howell is a Sports Romance with a good dose of humor and extremely witty writing.  Bossed will release on March 28, 2017, and is intended for readers 18 years and older. bossed-sloane-howell

My FOUR Star Review:

I must confess, this is the first book I’ve read by Sloane Howell but it will definitely not be the last.  Bossed is the first in a standalone series with the second book Scored releasing on June 27, 2017.  Bossed is written in the first person but each chapter is written from one of the main character’s point of view which I love.

Bossed consisted of basically two main characters, Jenny Jackson and Ethan Mason but there are some secondary characters I loved as well and I’m looking forward to reading their story.

I absolutely love a strong female character and Jenny fit the bill.  From the moment I met her, I adored her and just knew that every interaction she had with Ethan going forward was going to be awesome.  At times Ethan’s inner monologue was so funny, I was laughing out loud.

This story is not just and office romance.  Yes, romance is alive and well but it is so much more.  Jenny’s life is a little complicated and Ethan’s is as well.  The way they navigate through the complications was really a joy to read.   I would highly recommend Bossed!

More About Bossed:

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.
