The Frog Prince (A Romantic Comedy) The Frog Prince (A Romantic Comedy) 4.3 stars / 434 reviews READ ALL OF ELLE LOTHLORIEN'S CONTEMPORARY ROMANCES: *The Frog Prince *Alice in Wonderland *Sleeping Beauty *Sleeping Beauty Wakes Up(Alternate Ending) DESCRIPTION OF THE BESTSELLER: It was his pheromones that did it. With one sniff, sex researcher Leigh Fromm recognizes that any offspring she might have with the mysterious stranger would have a better-than-average chance of surviving any number of impending pandemics. But when Leigh finds out that the handsome "someone" at her great aunt's wake is Prince Roman Habsburg von Lorraine of Austria, she suddenly doubts her instincts--not that she was intending to sleep with the guy. The royal house of Habsburg was once completely inbred, insanity and impotency among the highlights of their genetic pedigree. (The extreme "bulldog underbite" that plagued them wasn't called the Habsburg Jaw for nothing.) It doesn't matter that his family hasn't sat on a throne (other than the ones in their Toilette) since 1918, or that Austria is now a parliamentary democracy. Their lives couldn't be more different: Roman is routinely mobbed by paparazzi in Europe. Leigh is regularly mocked for having the social skills of a potted plant. Even if she suddenly developed grace, charm and a pedigree that would withstand the scrutiny of the press and his family, what exactly is she supposed to do with this would-have-been king of Austria who is in self-imposed exile in Denver, Colorado? A handsome prince, gut-busting laughs, love, dirty ballroom dancing, pathetic commoners, sex factoids, Vienna palaces, cursing in German, random hilarity, little to no frogs. See why tens of thousands of readers have fallen in love with this Amazon bestseller! Because someday your prince will come...sort of. 2014-01-12 360 2166

The Second Thanksgiving The Second Thanksgiving 4.6 stars / 108 reviews Has Almighty God intervened in American history? Many great Americans have thought so, including President Abraham Lincoln as he signs the proclamation creating Thanksgiving as a permanent national holiday for the United States of America. “You must know and remember this,” Lincoln puts the matter bluntly. “Our nation began with a miracle.” The amazing facts are little remembered today. After their first Thanksgiving celebration in 1621, the Pilgrim settlers at Plymouth Plantation experienced an unmitigated series of disasters that left almost nothing to celebrate. Their third year in the new land nearly ended in the complete destruction of Plymouth. Ultimately the colony managed to survive only as the result of what the Pilgrims saw as one of the most astounding instances of divine intervention in human history outside the pages of the Bible, an event so awe-inspiring that it turned the fortunes of Plymouth completely and permanently around. This historically accurate novel tells the story of that terrible ordeal and its culminating miracle through the eyes of real people, Francis and Hester Cooke and their children, as they and the other people of Plymouth struggle against discord, danger, despair, hunger, exhaustion and outright terror—along with all the accompanying doubts assailing their strong Christian faith. These various conflicts play out over 1623, one of the most dramatic years in American colonial history. The great Wampanoag chieftain Massasoit Ousamequin, who has kept the peace, falls ill to the point of death. The Pilgrims learn that two hostile braves of the local Massachusett Tribe are attempting to foment a war to exterminate all the white newcomers. Should these troublemakers be stopped, even if by a murderous preemptive strike? What happens afterward, when nature itself seems to turn against all the inhabitants of the land, with the fingers of blame pointed squarely at the people of Plymouth by enraged Native Americans? What happens when the situation becomes so ominous, so deadly, so far beyond human solution, that the Pilgrims have nowhere to turn except to God and the power of prayer? 2012-10-16 438 343242

Saint Elm's Deep (The Legend of Vanx Malic Book 3) Saint Elm's Deep (The Legend of Vanx Malic Book 3) 4.6 stars / 89 reviews Here is what people are saying about Vanx Malic:I felt like I was in a whole new world reading this book... The storyline was also amazing. I would recommend anyone who loves fantasy books to read this as you will def be swept into this world! - Avid Reader Reviews (*Review of Through the Wildwood, Book One)"You've (Mathias) already achieved much, much more than so many people who like to think of themselves as writers." -- @Gollancz The Deputy Publishing Director of SF, Fantasy & Horror list of the Orion Publishing Group."When reading this book, I was reminded of several other fantasy novels that I have read previously. The author's style is individual, but it has the flavor of a Tolkien novel, or possibly Robert Jordan. I detected a great amount of affection in his deliverance of the characters, and their progress throughout the story was handled well. I must say that Vanx is quite a likeable rogue, and the way that the story begins certainly grabs the reader, pulling them into the story whether they like it, or not."-- Kindle Review (*Review of Through the Wildwood, Book One)Entertaining, action packed, and witty. Overall a good second book that starts where the first left off and I look forward to the next. - Jacob (Review of Dragon Isle, Book Two)Snippet from Saint Elm's Deep, The Legend of Vanx Malic Book III:“I’ve been listening to all your spook talk for days,” Kegger said quite clearly, but with a caravaneers crudeness to his words. All of the gargan accent that had been in his voice when speaking of knives and bows, during his battling with Chelda, was gone, as if it had never been there. “My orders were to get you to the Lurr and wait for you to come out.” He hefted his axe and thumbed the edge he’d been sharpening nightly at the fire. “I’ve got a good bit of unfinished business in them woods myself. Twern’t no frost bite that took his limbs. The tree that had my brother was real. I swear it. I had to cut him from it. It was foul smelling, and as evil as the Letch itself. It bled thick red blood, just like you or I would, where my ax struck. I hurt it, and it screamed right at me before it turned Sean loose. It weren’t no magic fairy tree. This was as black and cold as the Letcher’s own wrath.” “But you saw no sign of the fae in the Lurr Forest?” Gallarael asked.“If I did, I didn’t know what it was,” Kegger chuckled. “Deer, elk, bear, and wolf. I know their sign well, but I’ve never seen a fairy turd, much less been inclined to look for one.”The Legend of Vanx Malic continues with Book Three, "Saint Elm's Deep"After finding a map on a grueling hunt, Vanx and his new companions decide to travel deep into the Bitterpeaks, where a fabled hoar witch's crystal palace supposedly sits hidden in a valley called Saint Elm's Deep. The story deepens, as we delve into Vanx's past and the future of as unlikely a group of heroes as you will ever find. Action and adventure, drama and thrills, and a barrel keg full of fantasy adventure await readers in Saint Elm's Deep, the third installment of The Legend of Vanx Malic.Look for book four, "That Frigid Fargin' Witch" in early 2014.Other titles by M.

Before he's kicked out, Dan needs to stop his hosts from hurting anyone else. It's one of the rules if he wants more rides.

The Reluctant Hero The Reluctant Hero 4.6 stars / 18 reviews Parnell Stillman, ace pilot, is man to the bone in a lackadaisical kind of way. He has the ability to fly through anything except solid mountain. He lives alone because people are not to be trusted—especially women.

Be My Yoko Ono (an OddRocket title) Be My Yoko Ono (an OddRocket title) 4.8 stars / 8 reviews Who are Will and Tiger Lilly? Depending on who you ask, they're Silicon Valley tech support drones, alpha nerds in love, or revered relationship gurus. Long ago, at the start of their ten-years-and-going relationship, this unconventional couple pledged to be honest and to be open... open, in every sense of the word. To their friends and countless workshop attendees, they're living proof that polyamory can succeed!What none of those people know is that lately, something's not working between them... in fact, nothing's working at all. And maybe it's been more than just "lately"--maybe the problems were building for years. Will's been self-medicating with distraction, mentally escaping into books, comics, and video games. Meanwhile Tiger's turning outward, stuffing her calendar with social and romantic pursuits. (Not that she had to turn outward all that far: Will and Tiger’s lovers Siouxie and Stephen are full time members of the household.) And it’s all been leading up to Tiger’s shattering announcement in the middle of a road trip: “I just don’t see you as a primary partner anymore.”Luckily for Will, this trip is leading them to the rural township of Butterly, Oregon, to visit Tiger’s father and new stepmother. From the moment the geezer newlyweds fling open the door to welcome them, it’s impossible not to see the glow of their love. Impossible not to feel jealous…and inspired. Could it be that, between games of D&D, Buffy theme nights, and hot tub parties, Tiger and Will are missing out on the joys of tradition and monogamy? And what are those joys, exactly? A comic consideration of love, lust, and geekdom in an era of expanding lifestyle possibilities. 2014-01-16 240 171250

A Chance Beginning: Book One of the Shadow's Fire Trilogy A Chance Beginning: Book One of the Shadow's Fire Trilogy 5.0 stars / 4 reviews Erik Eleodum is a simple man. He doesn’t want to be a hero. He doesn’t need fame or fortune. He is content farming his family’s homestead in northern Hthgolthane and raising a simple family, like his father, for the rest of his life. In fact, adventure is the last thing on his mind. Befel, Erik’s brother, and Bryon, his cousin, can’t think of anything worse than farming for the rest of their lives. They want to be heroes. They want fame and fortune. They want to leave their families and go east, to the country of Golgolithul, where they are sure to find easy wealth and great adventure. But when these three young men leave their farmstead, they quickly discover the world is not so simple, not so easy. Most fortune is laden with treachery, fame must be earned with blood, and adventures are rarely grand. Ideas of grandeur are crushed and the road east is hard. To get there, these men must ultimately sell their swords and become friends with thieves, dwarves, soldiers, and mercenaries well past their prime. They battle a band of ruthless slavers, slip past assassins, and experience the deadly consequences of black magic. Will Erik ever be able to return to the simple life? Will he unwittingly become famous, become rich, become a hero? Or, will he even survive? Often the deeds of those deemed smaller, either in stature or status, go uncounted by chroniclers of history. Yet, it is these deeds that repeatedly change the course of history. For every hero whose feats minstrels sing, there were fifty men following his stead, giving blood and sweat just as he did; and because they were not the first to return from a long voyage away, or perhaps they did not return at all, their glories are never sung. This is a story about those men who would only be known in the local legends, who would have been forgotten by time save for a small bit of chance. Chance, Fate, Destiny, Dumb Luck; all these and more, and then maybe none of these things, are the reasons a young man can go from a farmer’s son, a boy of lowly birth born with dirt on his face, to a great warrior, a kingly knight, a dragon slayer. Three young farmers, tired of plowing endless fields from sunrise to sunset, gave up all they knew to pursue fame, pursue riches. Their crying mothers at their backs and the unknown ahead of them, they worked in pigsties, slept in the alleys of outskirt cities, traveled with strangers and shed blood unwillingly. They trusted men they should not have trusted, and did not trust those they should have. These young men who left their way of life for fame and glory would soon learn, as most young men full of grand ideas and just ideals do, the world is not what they thought it to be. 2014-05-02 336 33789

Beautiful to Behold (The Dark Brethren Series) Beautiful to Behold (The Dark Brethren Series) 4.8 stars / 4 reviews Since childhood, twenty-four-year-old Owen Linet has been plagued by bad dreams, or rather the same bad dream, of a man named Hector, who claims to be dead. Hector possesses a strange black cloak on which are stitched a series of golden symbols—“Words” that Hector, their “bearer”, claims have miraculous powers when spoken. He gifts one of these Words to Owen—a Word that, Hector claims, can not only take life, but also restore it. Twenty-two-year-old Polish partisan, Jacek Tarasek, is ordered to follow a suspicious foreigner, a British artist named Owen Linet, who closely resembles a man from Jacek’s past—someone Jacek would just as soon forget.

When Jacek can’t bring himself to destroy the man with whom he is falling deeply in love, he is forced to confront his flawed understanding of good and evil. Publisher’s Note: Beautiful to Behold is a male-male love story and contains homoerotic sex acts that may be offensive to some readers. 2013-12-20 616425

The Two Bits Club The Two Bits Club 5.0 stars / 3 reviews J. J. Haile again delivers a masterful work of literary fiction. The Two Bits Club is not just a story that will touch you; it reaches out and holds you! With characters so vibrant and contemporary, you’ll feel like they’re your dearest girlfriends by the end of the book.Every other Saturday Ceceile and her friends get together for a much-needed break from the trials of life. Good food, good company, and a friendly game of cards can sometimes be just the right recipe to help get you through the heartaches and headaches of life, love and family relationships. Take a walk through the lives of truly tangible characters, women who deal with love relationships, divorce, life-changing events, death, and family. Along the way, you’ll see that life and living is about the relationships and experiences that we build and share with each other. --------------------Maxine’s eyes bulged as she stared at her mother, “Mama, have you lost your mind too? Daddy made a decision, and he doesn't care how it affects us, he just wants what he wants!”Mikey agreed, “Yeah, he’s just a selfish fool who doesn't care who he hurts. I hate him!”Ceceile shot to her feet, leaving the still crying Betty Ann and slapped Mikey across his face. “It doesn't matter what he’s done, he is and will always be your father, like it or not. What we have to do is continue on with our lives, our plans and not let what’s happening affect us.”--------------------Lily continued in her ways. An unwanted pregnancy had sent her uptown to a midwife who had apparently not done the usual perfect job she was known for, and now, Lily lay weak and still bleeding in her mother’s house. The women gathered around the bed and spoke softly to their friend, Lily seemed almost lifeless, her dark eyes listless and dull.--------------------Lois went over the column of numbers for the fourth time and satisfied, tucked the slip of paper into her purse and taking her bag, left for work. All day, she went back to the talk she had had with Ella, the plans they were daring to make, the life they were hoping for. They knew that no matter how progressive New Orleans might be, it was after all 1969. Their relationship was frowned upon. It was acceptable for the musicians and the artists that lived in the French Quarter, almost expected, but the sight of two ordinary women parading their preferences would be another matter.--------------------The Two Bits Club is a story I've long wanted to tell. Not only do I feel it is one you will enjoy, but also it is a tale that I think resonates in any setting and in any time.Enjoy!~J. J. 2013-12-10 142 1764368
PANTHER LEGACY (A TWO BOOK VOLUME) PANTHER LEGACY (A TWO BOOK VOLUME) 5.0 stars / 3 reviews Panther Legacy contains two volumes: THE PANTHER AND THE PEARL, an historical romance set during 1885 in the Ottoman Empire of Turkey, first printed in 1994, and its sequel, Panther's Prey, set in the same location ten years later and released in 1996. The main characters of the first book reappear in the second book but in lesser roles as the central story is carried by a subsequent pair of lovers. Both stories are very erotic and atmospheric historicals, immersed in the male dominated culture of Turkey at the time. That area of the world was then controlled by local rulers called Sultans and their lesser lieutenants, called Pashas, both absolute despots ruling their districts with iron hands. In The Panther and the Pearl, Sarah Woolcott is a Boston schoolteacher visiting a relative in Turkey in the late nineteenth century. By a combination of circumstances you'll find only in fiction, Sarah is purchased by the Pasha of Bursa, Kalid Shah. He is a young, Oxford educated district governor, the child of a local pasha and a captive British mother, who takes a fancy to Sarah when he sees her during a state visit to his boss, the Sultan. Sarah is outraged when she is drugged and kidnapped and wakes up to find herself the property of this seductive stranger, installed in his harem as the ikbal, the favorite, and expected to accept her fate as his new sex toy. While she fights him tooth and nail and pursues every avenue to obtain her release, at the same time she is drawn to him inexorably as he proves to be as intelligent, charming and sexy as he is handsome. What results is a battle of wits which drives them both to distraction, as she refuses to submit to his imperious commands and he ignores his stable of submissive beauties to chase the American woman who wants nothing to do with him. How Sarah winds up turning the tables on her dictatorial lover and finally bringing him to heel makes for an entertaining and highly sensual story.PANTHER'S PREY , the sequel to THE PANTHER AND THE PEARL , takes place ten years later in the same district of Bursa, where the ward of Sarah Woolcott's cousin is abducted by Turkish rebels seeking to overthrow the same Sultan in power when Sarah first arrived in Turkey. She is now married to Kalid Shah and living with him and their three children at Orchid Palace in Bursa. Shah is in sympathy with the rebels and allies himself with Malik Bey, the brother of a character in the first book. Bey is a wanted fugitive, the leader of the insurgents. Bey takes Sarah's cousin, Amelia Ryder, from her traveling coach by force in order to sell her into slavery to finance his anti-government activities. Amelia is as defiant and feisty as Sarah was a decade earlier, however, and as she tries repeatedly to get away from Bey's camp and back to her family she and the rebel leader grow fascinated with one another. She learns about Bey's past and his cause and helps him when his lieutenant and best friend is wounded. As time passes they share a compelling physical attraction which soon grows into an undeniable, unbreakable bond. Bey, young and handsome himself, is besotted with pretty blonde Amelia. He can't keep his hands off her, despite his best efforts to put the revolution first and his feelings second, and decides finally that he cannot sell her. He makes a deal to release her to Shah just as she realizes that his cause is just and, even more shocking, that she really doesn't want to get away from him. As Bey works with Shah to remove the Turkish dictator and replace him with an elected legislature, Bey is arrested and condemned by a desperate Sultan and Amelia joins forces with Kalid and Sarah to save his life. How Bey triumphs in the end and gets both a new government and the girl makes for a satisfying and sensual read. I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I enjoyed writing them. 2012-08-16 491 1455

A Pool, A Suitor, A Cellist: Bright Shadows Series: Novelette Trilogies for Busy Folks A Pool, A Suitor, A Cellist: Bright Shadows Series: Novelette Trilogies for Busy Folks 5.0 stars / 2 reviews A lonely and beautiful little girl with a strange friend, a shy, thoughtful young man searching for a purpose in life that will surprise you, and an elderly, sensual woman whose art warns her of the future, these are the spines of the bizarre novelettes featured in this first volume of a series of trilogies: "Bright Shadows—Novelettes for Busy Folks". Due to our time pressures and the increasing stress of modern life, the reader and audiobook listener’s appetite for “binge reading” is increasing dramatically. These novelettes—or short novels of fifteen thousand words each—are about three times as long as the average short story and about one seventh the average full novel’s length, yet provide the subplots, complications, and wealth of rich characters and dramatic punch of full length tomes. Each novelette, also divided into three convenient parts, is a self-contained, satisfying, piquant slice of riveting fiction with fast moving scenes, snappy dialogue, and endings with a twist—much in the style of the "Twilight Zone" TV series. 2014-03-25 201 985165

Nineteen-eighteen was a watershed year for 6-year-old Walter Dunbar and 13-year-old Ruth Wilson. That year’s seminal events in their childhoods ultimately bring them together as young adults to share a lifetime --- dedicated to strong moral and family values --- through a half century of shifting societal values and standards. Nineteen-eighteen also marked the birth of Eleanor Riggs whose nature and upbringing combine to create an unprincipled and manipulative self-serving woman --- the embodiment of evil --- who insinuates herself into Walter’s life. As it sweeps across the landscapes of eastern New England, New York’s Southern Tier, Maryland, and eastern Pennsylvania, the saga of these three individuals’ lives is set against a tapestry of historical events and shifting cultural and societal attitudes of 20th Century America. 2011-03-04 296 1988674

Dr. Mike has his name on the door, a briefcase full of dog-eared essays, a mortgage, a pudding of a wife, itching hell-fire in his loins and another twenty years to do before he gets his pension.Cue mid-life crisis in a spectacular form. Beautiful and beguiling Ellie comes to see him privately to say she's afraid that her step-father is going to molest her. She is proved right. The stage is set.But who grooms whom?Written some years before the recent case of the British teacher and his pupil eloping to Bordeaux, this nevertheless resonates and proves there's nothing new under the sun - or in the classroom. A beautifully crafted trial scene is followed by the 'release' of an elopement to a place without Time or Intrusions. But can runaways really run away? This very brave novel, confronting one of the final taboos of our time, challenges the assumptions we usually make in this situation in an intelligent, thoughtful, forthright and very humorous way. The fact that it is 'forthright' causes the author to attach to this book what he (tongue in cheek) likes to call a FILTH WARNING - there are rude bits on every other page. You have been warned!! 2013-12-28 366 1460696

She’s in her early twenties, attractive, friendly, witty, strong. Enrolled in a Physician’s Assistant program, Rain has little time for a social life between her studies and working at Jake’s. Although many are attracted to her, she has not found herself truly interested in anyone in a romantic way.Charlie Luck is a man who has been drifting half-alive, since the death of his wife of 28 years, followed a year later by that of his 23-year-old son (their only child). Charlie is in his early fifties with rugged good looks and is in extraordinarily good physical condition. He appears quiet and unassuming, but there is much more beneath the surface.Charlie doesn’t really notice Rain as anything more than an attractive, friendly young woman initially, but something begins to happen to him as he gets to know her better. He has not been attracted to any woman since losing his wife and he is deeply troubled by whatever the feelings are that he is developing for Rain, particularly due to the age difference.After closing one night, Rain runs into trouble with three drunks who begin to sexually assault her in the parking lot. Charlie, who lives in an upstairs room at the tavern, shows up amid questions about what he could possibly do to help Rain. After trying to talk the three louts down while they berate him as an old man and worse, Charlie is forced to turn physical and quickly ends the situation employing what appear to be special forces skills. From that night on, Rain always feels completely safe around Charlie and begins to realize there is much more to him than just a nice, hardworking guy. Leaving the bar on a beautiful full-moon night, Rain hears Charlie on his upstairs deck playing guitar and singing. After learning that Rain is watching from the darkness, he offers her a beer if she’ll sing with him. The two drink, sing, and laugh for hours, while the soft moonlight dissolves the age gulf that lies between them, albeit temporarily. While Rain and Charlie are setting up for an offsite party at a lodge, they become stranded there by a 100-year storm. Through an unusual series of events and revelations that take place at the lodge, the two wind up sharing an unexpected but very special sexual experience. The relationship grows and Rain and Charlie pursue a host of exciting activities in addition to the sex, although they keep the nature of the relationship to themselves as much as possible. But Charlie’s concerns over Rain’s long-term well being with “a man who can give her only half a life,” eventually cause him to leave abruptly, resulting in great pain for both of them.When they meet again, unexpectedly, five years later, the situation has inexplicably become even more complicated and potentially painful—and Rain and Charlie are faced with another gut-wrenching decision. 2014-03-07 114 597072
