Happy Holiday!!




Hello, dear readers!

It’s that magical time of year. Whatever holiday you observe, I hope it’s filled with wonder, sparks of fun, cheer, and love. Maybe even a scrumptious Wishing Spritz cookie that will make your dreams come true, like the cookies in Merry Little Wishing Spritz. 😉

Happy holidays to you and yours! 🎄🎁🎉
Cherie


Curl up with my small town, enemies to lovers romance with a dash of magic. It’s about a modern-day witch who casts a well-intended spell meant to save her apartment and her job. But magic is unpredictable, especially when her friend casts a little charm of her own that has Cassie lusting after the man she desperately wants to despise. It’s a fun, festive, and flirty read that will make you laugh and swoon.

Sweet Romance and Lovable Pups, Plus a Peek Between the Pages 💕🐶

 


Who doesn't love the cute pet that is there for us? All the books in this book fair have a lovable pup that is there for the protagonist, and I'm delighted to have my small town romance Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss included in this event. 

🐶 💕  Visit the event  💕 🐶



Peek between the pages of Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss

Jinx happily jumped to the ground. She paused, head tilted and ears perked. Off in the distance, a voice sang a lovely melody, like secrets on the wind. It was the song from my premonitions.

The spark circled me, bringing my attention back to the spell. It zigged left around my car and then zagged over the boardwalk. Jinx frolicked along behind it.

“Jinx, wait!” I grabbed my purse, locked the doors, and jogged to catch up. A warm breeze lifted my hair, bringing with it the delicious aroma of barbecue and charbroiled meats. My stomach growled, but there was no time to check out the restaurants. Not with my puppy prancing through the pale sand.

“Jinx!” I hopped off the wood walkway and onto the sand. Ahead of me, Jinx scampered between a couple relaxing on a sherbet-colored blanket and then through a little girl’s sandcastle.

“Sorry.” I skirted the couple. “Sorry,” I said to the girl. With a flick of a finger, I repaired some of the damage to her castle. The loose sand under my sandal- clad feet made it difficult to run. “Jinx, slow down!”

Jinx and the spark stopped at the end of a long pier lined with boats of varying sizes. We were alone. I clutched a stitch in my side. The spark bobbed a couple of times above the clear blue water before plopping soundlessly beneath the surface. Jinx barked.

“No, Jinx. We’re not going to jump.” I hoped the spark somehow heard me and reappeared. It couldn’t possibly think I was going to follow it into the ocean.

I glanced around, hoping to spot the gray-haired man or the boy from my vision. The hauntingly beautiful song blended with the waves splashing against the pier. I breathed in, enjoying the sounds of nature and savoring the crisp scent of the sea. Both were inviting. Maybe that was why they called this place Siren’s Cove. It beckoned people to stay.



Happy reading, everyone!!

Title: Atticus Everheart, Fifth Grade Tutor and Monster Hunter?

Author: C.L. Colyer

Cover artist: Diana Carlile

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press

Genres: Middle grade, fantasy


Sometimes it takes an ordinary ten-year-old to save the day.

 

Book Blurb:

Nothing frightens Atticus Everheart more than monsters, thanks to his older brothers, who often threaten to feed him to the beastly creatures.

Fearing that’s what they will do if he doesn’t replace the book he accidentally ruined, he takes a job tutoring a boy in his neighborhood.

 

Although nervous about the job, Atticus soon discovers there’s a lot more in store for him than teaching. Never in a trillion years would he have imagined he’d be hiding from monsters, working with ghosts, or searching for werewolves and witches. He’s not brave, and he has no plans to change.

 

Until he’s forced to.

Happy Spooky Season!




Hello, dear readers!

Fall is here, and that means it’s time for some spooky and magical reads. I love this season of ghosts and witches, demons and monsters. That’s why I’ve been busy decorating my house with pumpkins and cobwebs, munching on delicious taffy apples, and curling up with some cozy fantasies.

One of the books I recently enjoyed was The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches, a lighthearted and cozy fantasy about a lonely witch who would love to find someone she can trust with her secret. The book, by Sangu Mandanna, is a sweet read with a fun and witty twist. If you enjoy books about witches, check it out!

If you’re looking for a book with witches or demons, I hope you’ll check out some of mine:

  • Isaac and the Prince of Fae, Free on KU: A paranormal adventure about a battle between witch and fae in which there can be only one winner.
  • Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss: An enchanting, second-change romance about a witch who gets more than she bargained for when she follows a vision to a small town in Maine.
  • Damned When I Didn't: A YA paranormal romance about an 18-year-old virgin who finds herself Hell's newest succubus. (Read an excerpt below.)

He’s sure there’s a peaceful compromise to her prince of a problem. Only Heather hasn’t been entirely truthful about why this dangerous faerie refuses to leave. He’s even more powerful than Isaac. That is, if Isaac doesn’t tap into dark magic. When the faerie threatens to harm the people Isaac cares about, he abandons civility.

What Lurks in the Dark on Wayward Lane?



Hi!

Today I have a bonus scene from my middle-grade action/adventure Friends to the End written from Morgan's POV. This scene shares with you what she found related to Grimace Grove Cemetery and Wayward Lane. 

Happy reading!


FRIENDS TO THE END

by C.L. Colyer

Bonus scene from Morgan’s POV

 


Morgan grabbed a can of soda and headed to her dad’s study to use his laptop. If her brothers wouldn’t tell her more about the vanishing house, she’d search the internet. She sat in the big leather chair, pulled her auburn curls into a low ponytail, and typed ‘vanishing house + Wayward Lane’ into the browser. The top result led to a real estate company, but others caught her eye. She clicked on one of them. A post from a popular ghost-hunting TV show filled the screen. The opening hiss of the soda can pierced the silence in the study. Morgan took a sip before leaning forward to read the article.
 

What Lurks in the Dark on Wayward Lane?

 

About an hour outside of Chicago, tucked between the homes along Wayward Lane, is Grimace Grove Cemetery, one of Illinois’s most haunted graveyards. Visit one day and you may see white lights floating between the tombstones, while on another, hazy human-like figures standing by the fence. Listen closely and you may hear the whispers of people long dead. But the strange phenomenon doesn’t stop at the graveyard. Visitors to the area have reported other bizarre sightings, none of which can be explained by experts. Who and what might be the cause of these unexplained events? We took a closer look at the town's sordid past and recorded it below—you be the judge. 
 
The gangsters who visited the town for rest and relaxation during prohibition were known to cause trouble—illegal trouble. Is the shadowy cigar-smoking man who has been spotted in the middle of the street one of the former gangsters? Witnesses describe him as a stout guy, wearing a suit and a bowler hat like the ones worn back in the 1920s. A woman even claims he called her the “bee’s knees” as his spectral form blinked in and out of view. Is he the ghost of Franky—on the lam—Hood? You tell me.
 
Equally as disturbing as the ghost of a gangster are the reports of a phantom Model A roadster that barrels past oncoming traffic, leaving in its wake the roar of men’s laughter and machine gunfire. My money is on these men being more of the mobsters who used to frequent the neighborhood. 

 

Reports of a young woman dressed in fringe and pearls, dancing the Charleston in the middle of the road are common. Drivers who stopped to tell her to get off the road swear that she vanished into thin air when they rolled down their windows. Eyewitnesses later matched her image to photos of Mary Porter, a nineteen-year-old flapper who died in a car accident on that exact stretch of the road in April 1923. She had been on her way home from a popular speakeasy, where she worked as a flapper.
 
But perhaps the most intriguing of the legends surrounding Wayward Lane is that of the disappearing house. This ghost hunter hasn’t found proof that the house, which is often described as an old Victorian-styled home with a long front porch, ever existed on the physical plain. But locals insist this home, known for having housed a venerated Civil War hero, burned down in the 1870s and that it, along with his wife, refuse to let go.

 
The mystery surrounding the house and its occupants may never be solved. Are the locals correct in saying that this house is occupied by the ghost of its last resident? Did her unwavering belief that her husband would return from the war and her determination to be there when he did trap her and the house in a time loop? Romantic? Yes. True? I’ll let you be the judge.

 
No wonder Morgan’s brothers refused to talk about the house and why her parents had forbidden her to search for it. Clearly, they believed the stories––maybe even thought she’d be kidnapped or swept away by the ghosts that lived there. A smile tugged at the corners of her mouth. Adults can be so gullible sometimes.
 
She clicked back to the search results. The next blog post had similar information about Wayward Lane and Grimace Grove Cemetery. A chill went through her. It also confirmed what her brothers had warned her happened to anyone inside of the house when it vanished: 
 

Rumors of people disappearing along with the house date back to the Civil War, when a soldier was last spotted entering that home and was never seen again. Others are believed to have met the same grim fate when they went to investigate decades later.  

 
Every article, post, and newsletter Morgan read had a slightly different version of the legend, but the result was always the same. Wayward Lane was haunted. Decade after decade, dozens of people had witnessed things they couldn’t explain. Morgan let out a low whistle. Ghosts existed, and she lived within biking distance of the second most haunted location in Illinois. 

 

She couldn’t wait to tell Zach the exciting news.

Small Town Romance Anyone?



It's Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss book birthday, and I thought it would be fun to answer a couple of questions from readers and share an excerpt, so let's dive right in!


(Q) What was the hardest part of writing this book? 
(A) Truth be told, I stumbled a bit trying to get Peyton to Siren’s Cove. Here she was, a single 31-year-old woman following a vision to find a man she’s never met and knows nothing about, and she was going by herself. Sure, she’s a witch. She can take care of herself, but I kept thinking about how dangerous that would be, and this is a romance novel, not a thriller. I quickly revised what she saw in her vision. Instead of searching for a strange man around her age, she is searching for an older man and a boy. The rest of the story fell into place after that.

(Q) What did I enjoy most about writing this book? 
(A) I loved getting to know the characters. We met Peyton in Merry Little Wishing Spritz, but that book is Cassie’s story. I got to learn more about Peyton and her gift of premonitions in this book. It was also fun to figure out just who a certain brown-eyed ice cream man is.

(Q) What genre of books do I enjoy reading? 
(A) It probably won’t come as a surprise that my favorite genre is paranormal. My favorite paranormal creatures include witches, vampires, angels, and demons. 


QOTD: What's your favorite genre?


Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss is part of The Wild Rose Press’s One Scoop or Two series. Each book in the series is a standalone book set in a beach town. 




Peek between the pages...

The man who had broken my heart on my twenty- third birthday walked out of the backroom. Eight years was a long time. My heart had since healed. Or so I had thought. Seeing him again ripped open old wounds. And darn it if he didn’t look as attractive now as he did then. It would have been easier to run into him again if he were fat, bald, and ugly. But he was just as handsome as before—all tall and sinewy. He still wore his black hair shaved close to his head, and I recognized his Hawaiian shirt as one I’d bought.

After the long road trip, I had to be a sight and not a knock ’em dead one. I almost twitched my nose, ready to cast a spell to smooth my hair and add a little color to my cheeks, but stopped. With my luck, magic would decide the enchantment was for personal gain and turn me into a hag. I ran a hand over my head instead.

“A customer thinks your ice cream is delicious. What else?” Karly said.

“Thank you.” Roman threw a friendly grin my way. His mouth fell open. “Peyton?”

Since vanishing in a puff of green smoke wasn’t an option—partially because it would expose magic and partly because I wasn’t even sure that was possible—I returned his smile. I wouldn’t let him see me rattled.

“Do you two know each other?” Karly asked.

“Ah...yeah.” Roman’s jaw muscle twitched the way it always did when he was flustered. I bet he wished he could vanish in a puff of smoke too.

Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss: Did you know?


Fun tidbits


1.  The idea for Peyton's story came to me while writing Merry Little Wishing Spritz. She was such a fun supporting character in my Christmas novella that I knew I'd want her to have her own story.

2.  Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss is part of The Wild Rose Press's One Scoop or Two series. Each novella is a standalone book set in a beach town.

3.  The book's title had to have a flavor of ice cream in it to be a part of the series.

4.  Ice cream dates back to the mid-1600s. A man working for a Spanish Viceroy in Naples was credited with being the first person to write down a recipe for sorbet and later creating a milk-based icy treat.

5.  Salted Caramel Bliss with a Wedding Kiss is my second small town, contemporary, paranormal romance. Both books have a touch of magic woven into the stories.

6.  Witches often get a bad rap for being evil, but most witches are quite the opposite, living by the rule of harm none and believing in a peaceful existence.

7.  A seer is a person with the gift of sight. They can see the past as well as the future. Peyton's premonitions are usually of the future.

8.  Siren's Cove is a fictional town in Maine. Its inspiration came from Ogunquit, ME, which I've only seen in pictures.

9.  The terms mermaids and sirens are often used interchangeably. These half fish, half human creatures live in the sea. Many legends depict both mermaids and sirens as having alluring voices that lead sailors to their deaths.

10.  Mermaids have magical powers much like faeries.

11. Some comp titles include The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling, The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches by Sangu Mandanna, The Kiss Curse by Erin Sterling, Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman 

=^-^=

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“This enchanting read is perfect for a summer afternoon. The well-developed characters are stars in this book, from Payton and Roman to the secondary cast—especially the sweetest little boy-Travis, and Jinx-an adorable pup.” ~ Still Moment Magazine

About the book:

Order of the Dragon Knights Series
Author: Mary Morgan
Genre: Time-travel Paranormal Romance
Heat level: Spicy

Blurb

They were an ancient order, descended from the great Tuatha Dé Danann, the Sidhe, or in simpler terms: the Fae. Half-human and half-fae, each knight blessed with mystical powers. Given to them were holy relics from the Fae and guardianship over their Dragons.

They were known as the Dragon Knights.

However, some believed the Order had too much power and they tried to possess it for themselves. They were evil and twisted, and their plan succeeded one fateful night. The brothers of the Clan MacKay—Dragon Knights, fought a battle. Blood spilled onto holy ground, bringing forth the wrath of the Fae. Their relics were taken, and the Order was banished—each name stricken from the hallowed halls of the Fae.

The Clan MacKay is no longer.

The Dragon Knights have scattered across the land.

Yet out of the darkness, they will each fight for redemption, and the women they love.
