LORDS OF LOVE AND LEGENDS Fun Facts
 (Post II ~ 2 Fun Facts by BJ, 2 by SE)

AM/SEW: SOME LIKE IT KILTED’s hero, Bran of Barra, is my all-time favorite hero. If I could truly have any hero I’ve ever written, it would be him. Here’s a (somewhat naughty) mini-excerpt to show what a rogue he is:
She turned back to him, her heart flipping to see that his smile had gone from crooked to smoldering.
“Must you do that?” She could hardly speak.
“Do what?”
“Smile at me like-”
“Like I’m ready to eat you?” His grin turned wicked. “Och, lass, if you only knew...”

 AM/SEW:  In Winter Fire, the heroine’s home, Eilean Creag Castle, is based on Eilean Donan Castle, perhaps the most popular castle in Scotland. It is certainly the most photographed and appears on a bazillion Scottish romance novel covers. The hero’s castle Druimbegan was inspired by Dunvegan Castle on Skye. I was back in Scotland just a few months ago and made my usual pilgrimage to Skye. This photo shows me at Eilean Creag Castle, better known as Eilean Donan.    

BJ:
The fun fact about THE WICKED LADY is that it started with a sentence…. “She didn’t mean to shoot the man.”  That is all I had when I started the book, but it was a fun book to write….well I didn’t think so at the time, but once it was done, then it was fun.  This is a book that will make you laugh and cheer for the underdog.

BJ:
Somehow I’ve managed to put a Scottish character in all my books – even the westerns.  I love Scotland as well as England.  My husband is a Scot.  I’ve had letters from readers wanting me to write Kristen’s sister’s story.  However all the readers want me to write the next book in whatever they are reading and one day I will, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten slower, so just give me a little while and I will make you all happy.  I’d rather write a great book than a bunch of fast books.  Do you agree?

BJ:  To this day when I read THE WICKED LADY, I still laugh and that is what I want to do for my readers.  Make you smile and to forget about all your problems and bills if only for a little while.

Last Word: The authors would like to thank you for hosting us today. We hope readers will enjoy Lords of Love and Legend: Magical Tales of Timeless Desire.

About Tabetha Waite

Tabetha grew up in a small town with big dreams of seeing her name in print ever since her fourth grade teacher said she liked reading her stories. Starting out putting pen to paper before graduating to an antique typewriter, she used to sit at the kitchen table and invent all manner of stories from fantasy to mystery. It wasn't until Tabetha was in high school did her grandmother mention reading the old Gothics of the sixties, along with the more modern Harlequins.
Once she opened these pages, Tabetha decided that romance was the genre for her. Combining her love of history, she started writing novels set in the American Civil War time period, but after learning of the Bronte sisters and Jane Austen, she fell in love with the beauty of England. "Why the Earl is After the Girl" is her debut novel and a dream come true. She is already busy writing the next book in her "Ways of Love" series, though she always makes time to respond to readers!
Tabetha lives in the Midwest with her husband and two daughters, and when she's not writing, she's working part time at the local community college as a lunch lady.

Review: REAL GOOD LOVE by Meghan March!

Real duet complete series

Type: Contemporary, Duet, Southern Drawl, Yes sir!

My Review: Book one was the falling in love part, this book is the Is This Going To Work? phase. And you know what? It was just as good, if not even better, than the first part. I got all the hot scenes I wanted, I got to see these two awesome characters trying to create their happily ever after, and I got an awesome suspense story added in. 

The suspense angle is alluded to in the first book of the duet, but it plays a major role in this second half. I was worried for a few moments - I already knew the author could create a hot man I wanted for my own, and definitely knew her way around a sex scene - but the suspense story arc could have gone bad quickly. But Meghan March rocked it, and I never would have seen it all coming. 

Now I guess I have to check out more books by this author, because I'm already addicted to her style!

Cover Lovin': Oh yum.

Recommendation: You absolutely MUST read book 1 first!

Final Rating:  FIVE out of FIVE stars (5/5)! Loved, loved, loved this! I thought book one was amazing, but this follow up blew that out of the water. I devoured this in one sitting, and now I'm desperate for more by this author.

 Happy Reading!
~!~ Amanda, Novel Addiction ~!~

    real-good-love-amazonFrom USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes a sexy new duet with a hero you won't want to miss. I’ve had my fair share of bad boys, but nothing prepared me for what it was like to be with a real good man. Logan Brantley changed everything. Somewhere along the way, what started as a fling became the best part of my life. He makes me want all the things I’ve never had, like forever and happily ever after, but nothing worth having comes easily. Everyone is betting on us to fail, but I’m ready to fight for this real good love.   Real Good Love is the conclusion of the Real Duet and should be read following Real Good Man.

    I’m a woman on a mission when I step off my last flight at six o’clock at night, annoyed it took me an entire freaking day to get here since I made my plans at the last minute. As soon as I leave the rental car desk, I’m headed for my first destination. Logan’s shop. He’s never going to know what hit him. My skirt is short, my heels are tall, and my hair, skin, and nails are perfect from the pampering I managed to sneak in this week. I pull into the parking lot an hour and a half later, mostly because I was so busy singing along to every kick-ass female anthem on my playlist that I missed the turn and went fifteen miles in the wrong direction. But no one needs to know that little detail. The lights are still on, and Logan’s truck is parked in its normal spot alongside the building. No other cars remain in the lot. I pull out my phone and switch it out of airplane mode. I told myself I kept it there all day because I was worried about the safety of my flights and obviously because of the FAA regulations, but that’s total bull. I didn’t trust myself not to answer what must be at least a few messages from Logan. I wanted this to be a surprise. Like when Logan thought I might be pregnant, this is a discussion that needs to happen in person. A few text messages pop up from him immediately, and they’re progressively more . . . let’s call it assertive. My Sexy Man: Bruce, call me. My Sexy Man: Seriously, babe. Call me. My Sexy Man: CALL ME. My Sexy Man: This radio silence shit will not fly. Call me, Bruce. My Sexy Man: Banner Regent, don’t even try to dodge me. I know where you are, and I will come to you and show you how a real man handles this situation.   A smile spreads over my face. I’ve come to terms with a few things in the last twenty-four hours, and one of them is that I don’t care if I’m the first one to say those words I’ve been holding back. I love Logan Brantley, and I’m not going to let another day go by without telling him. To his face. After I park, I slide out of the car, careful not to pull a Britney and flash anyone my vag because I’m going commando under this skirt, and strut my ass up to the entrance. I push on the door that opens into the waiting room, but it doesn’t budge. Locked. Well, dammit, that’s not part of my plan. I bang on it, but no one comes. The beat of whatever rock song he’s listening to is thumping through the walls. I pull my phone out of my wristlet and text him back. Banner: Open the damn door. A response pops up in seconds. My Sexy Man: What door? Banner: I’m waiting.   
  real-good-man-amazonFrom USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes a sexy new duet. We've all had the bad boys, now it's time for a Real Good Man. Fall for a woman over text messages? No way in hell. Reality can never be as good at the fantasy, right? Wrong. It’s better. Banner Regent is smart, funny, and she’s so far out of my league, she might as well be royalty. I’m a mechanic from Kentucky. She’s a New York City party girl. We were never supposed to meet, but one text started something neither of us saw coming. How do you seduce the woman who already has everything? Show her what it’s like to be with a real good man.   Real Good Man is book one of the Real Duet. Logan and Banner's story will conclude in Real Good Love, releasing January 17, 2017. iBooks | Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | Amazon CA | Kobo | Google Play | Audible | Paperback   Real Duet masterpiece blue

Release Day Blitz: EGOMANIAC by Vi Keeland!

  egomaniac-available-now     Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.
