Back Where You Belong (Honky Tonk Hearts) by Vonnie Davis

Back Where You Belong (Honky Tonk Hearts) by Vonnie Davis

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
While shooting pool at the Lonesome Steer Honky Tonk, rancher Tyler Desmond takes an errant dart in the neck. Ready to retaliate, he’s instead captivated by the blonde who threw it. Tyler isn’t interested in opening his heart, so why does he kiss the verbal buzz saw? Just to shut her up?

As a teenager, Lacy LaRoche had a secret crush on Tyler. When the dart brings them face-to-face, all she can do is chatter–until he kisses her. But Lacy didn’t come back to Texas to fall in love. She’s hiding another secret: her roommate surreptitiously videotaped Lacy undressing and posted it on the internet.

When Tyler’s daughter is bullied at school, Lacy must reveal the truth and face the emotional damage of cyberbullying. Over-protective of his daughter–and his heart–Tyler must learn to trust again. Can two scarred hearts find their way back to where they belong?

Sunny Beam (The Holy Lion) by LA Ramsey

Sunny Beam (The Holy Lion) by LA Ramsey

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Sunny Beam, a seemingly ordinary girl, discovers she possesses an extraordinary gift from God. This gift uproots her from all with which she is familiar when she is compelled to use it. Faced with a decision of two distinctively different paths in life she anguishes over her choices, enticed by the dark stranger who just happens to appear at the perfect time.

Will Sunny go the way of fame and fortune, using her gift to minister to the masses in her homeland? Will she follow the dark stranger to the other side of the world to use her gift in a place and culture unknown to her? The road she chooses takes her on an amazing journey that only God can unfold as she steps out in faith on the path she believes is meant for her.

Sunny Beam has strong Christian tones and yet has contemporary flair as well.

Chapter one teaser…

FIRST TIME GIFT

“Miss? Miss? Can you come here?” called a little voice beyond the partially opened door.

Sunny refused to hear it though. She kept her eyes on the wax and pushed the mop, her hands now feeling extremely hot and uncomfortable. Sunny tried to ignore her hands, but could not.
“Please. Miss? Can you come in here for just a second?” the little girl asked. Sunny looked up and could not avoid her penetrating stare. She smiled, pulled the dead ear buds from her ears, and carefully set the mop against the wall. She gingerly stepped over the caution wet floor rope.
“Um, hon, do you need a nurse?” Sunny asked, hoping the girl would say yes.

“No, please, come in. I want to talk to you.”
Sunny reluctantly stepped into the room. The dim lighting subdued the atmosphere; the walls had the same murals of colorful smiley-faced flowers, to help give the appearance of hope. It felt like a hospital room nonetheless. The lit lamp near the bed and subdued lighting above the bed headboard did not shed enough bright light. The girl looked so tiny and frail. Her eyes were sunken into her head, dark circles underneath. While her honey brown hair grew out thinly, as if she had been through the rigors of radiation or chemotherapy. Her little body looked thin and frail and her lips were a grayish flesh color. The room smelled of death.

Sunny felt a surge of energy in her body, though she wanted to turn and bolt. She thought briefly that she could do just that, turn, run, and never return. She heard a voice in her head say a firm, “no.” Sunny stared at the sick little girl; her eyes darted to the chart at the end of her bed, the date of birth, and the fact that the 12-year-old girl only looked eight.

“Please,” the girl continued to plea, “The angel said you would pray for me to be well.” Her eyes were almost unfocused, lackluster. Her chapped lips held none of the pinkness you normally see in children. Sunny’s heart began beating hard with indignity.

“You can ask God to heal you, you don’t need me to pray,” Sunny said, wanting to back out of the room. The tremors in her chest and gut were surely noticeable.

The little girl tried to sit up taller. “But I did,” she said softly. “I asked God to heal me so I would live, and He sent me you. The angel told me so.”
Sunny’s mouth dropped open and her breathing picked up. People did not need to go through others to get to God. She always felt that God could provide directly. Now she realized the opposite. He does provide, but not always through the means we think. In addition, He does use others to deliver.

Her hands continued to quake and heat up. She felt energy pouring in from the top of her head, through her body and out her hands. She shut her eyes for one split second and said a silent prayer to God. “God, if this is You, You have to take over.”

The next moment she went to the little girl, tears in her eyes, placed her hands one on top of her head and the other on her left shoulder, and opened her mouth to hear words of prayer flowing…

About the Author:

Paranormal Romance:

Cadence LaPorte is about to be hanged.

For weeks, U.S. Marshal, Jonah Kincaid, has been hot on her trail for the murder of his brother. His pursuit ends in a dusty Texas town at the scene of a lynching – namely, Cadence’s. Since revenge is at the top of his list, he saves her from death-by-hanging – for now.

Except Jonah thinks he’s been tracking a young boy.

And Cadence has this itsy-bitsy little problem: The women in her family are shape-shifting panthers, and once a year they’re compelled to mate with any male who happens to be in the vicinity – and become bound to him for life.

Jonah Kincaid is the last man on earth Cadence would wish to bind herself to. If she doesn’t find a way to escape him soon, she’ll be mauling the infuriating (handsome) U.S. Marshal – but as a woman, not as the panther.

Despite the obstacles thrown in their path, can two imperfect people find perfect true love?

CAILIN MAC DOUGAL has lived a dangerous life being the adopted daughter of vampire Broderick “Rick” MacDougal, so she had no choice but to learn to fight in order to protect herself. However, such behavior is hardly desirable in a dutiful wife who’s supposed to embroider and run a household. This aggressive side of her behavior should be easy enough to hide from her betrothed…shouldn’t it?

After being away at fencing school for seven years, JAMES KNIGHTLY has returned as a master swordsman, ready to captain his own ship and finally wed his childhood sweetheart, Cailin MacDougal. What he finds waiting for him is a dagger-toting hellion for a bride, an immortal father-in-law, and an enemy bent on extracting revenge by threatening the family James holds most dear-the MacDougals.
BRODERICK MAC DOUGAL is lured away from his family with the promise of-at last-learning a way to protect those he loves from his clan enemy, Angus Campbell. Broderick knows he’s headed for a trap, but the bait is too tempting to resist…and he unravels the beginning of a prophecy that will lead to redemption for all vampires. The cost of such redemption, though, may be the very soul of the woman he would die for…his wife, Davina.

Reader Advisory: This story contains some explicit love scenes, described using graphic and direct language. This story also contains explicit, nail-biting scenes of violence and sword fights.

About the Author:

Arial Burnz lives in Rancho Cucamonga, California, with her husband (a.k.a. romance novel hero, and who is also a descendent of Clan MacDougal) along with their dog and two cats.
