D.V. STONE’S LATEST RELEASE IS A DELIGHTFUL ENTRY IN THE POPULAR SUMMER SERIES ‘ONE SCOOP OR TWO’

It’s summer and what better way to celebrate than to enjoy a refreshing scoop or two of cooling ice cream? The Wild Rose Press is featuring a series built around the concept of romance and summer and— ice cream, of course.

D.V. Stone’s newest book is a heartwarming tale of a widow and widower who unexpectedly find each other during a lakeside getaway. Rainbow Sprinkles casts the hopeful colors of the rainbow on their second time around romance.

When she’d not writing her HEA stories, D.V. has two delightful blogs. Catch her blog centered around camping, one of her joys, in Welcome to the Campfire. She also shares website with fellow authors and friends in a second blog, Peek Through the Window.

Now let’s take a look at Rainbow Sprinkles.

Blurb

Retired and widowed Gloriana Jones is forging on with the plans she and her late husband dreamed of—bringing joy and happiness, one ice cream cone at a time, to Lake Unami. But bad weather is drowning her dream. A trip to Upstate NY is bittersweet for Nathan James. He is excited to see his first granddaughter but without his wife he’s lonely. When his car breaks down, he heads to the only light he can see, an ice cream shop. With aid from a heavenly source, electricity sparks, but will the two weather the summer storms and find love a second time? Or will their hopes and dreams melt away?

Excerpt

“Do you mind if I wait until the tow truck gets here?” He plucked the wet shirt away from his chest with the long fingers of one tanned hand. “It must be electrical, even the radio stopped working.”

“No, you’re welcome to hang around as long as you need.” Gloriana riffled through a cardboard box under the counter, pulled out an extra-large t-shirt, and tossed it to him. “Here you go. The restroom is through there.”

Mr. Gorgeous beamed a perfect toothy smile. “Thanks. I’ll be right back.”

When he disappeared into the hallway, and the door clicked shut, Gloriana fanned her face. What the hot fudge was wrong with her? “Coffee. Make coffee.”

MEDIEVAL MONDAY: ASHLEY YORK BRINGS EYES OF THE SEER, BOOK TWO IN THE WARRIOR KINGS SERIES

Incredible to realize that our Spring 2020 Blog Exchanges are nearly finished! The weeks just fly by. But it’s true. And as my last guest to round out our Nature Theme, I’m so happy to welcome my friend and talented story teller, Ashley York. Ashley’s excerpt is from her latest, Eyes of the Seer, Book Two in her popular Warrior Kings Series .

And by the way, you can find my penultimate snippet at Ashley’s blog: https://www.ashleyyorkauthor.com/blog

Now for EYES OF THE SEER

BLURB:

He wishes to prove himself…

Marcán of Clonascra bears the bloodline of Brian Boru and his prowess as a warrior has earned him great respect from everyone but Astrid, the woman who holds his heart. Between her mother’s condemning him as a pagan Seer and Astrid’s total disinterest, he finds solace as the king’s protector and confidant.

She is desperate to escape…

Astrid is more than ready to wed but her brother, the king, is in no hurry to see her married, so she decides to see to her own match-making. The man she approaches quickly reveals his lack of honor, but her overbearing mother pushes her to wed him anyway. When Astrid discovers Marcán’s love for her, will it be too late to have the happiness she’d always dreamed of?

EXCERPT:

She was asking for his forgiveness. That was all. Her sincerity was obvious, and he knew he was damned. This might be the hardest trial he had ever faced. He could not refuse her, but he tried one last time to avoid the inevitable.

“I believe ye, and I offer ye my forgiveness with nothing more required of ye.”

Her eyes rounded. “Please.”

That simple request was his undoing. “Then let us see to this bath.”

MEDIEVAL MONDAY: JENNA JAXON TAKES US ON A DANGEROUS JOURNEY IN — TIME ENOUGH TO LOVE

Today’s guest is my friend and popular author, Jenna Jaxon. Jenna’s medieval tales are exciting and tantalizing and guaranteed to sweep you away to the dangerous world of the Middle Ages.

BLURB:

When Lady Alyse de Courcy is betrothed to Sir Geoffrey Longford, she has no choice but
to make the best of a bad bargain. The hulking knight is far from her ideal man, and although he
does possess some wit and charm, he is no match for the sinfully sensual man she secretly
admires, Thomas, Earl of Braeton, her betrothed’s best friend.

From the first, Sir Geoffrey finds himself smitten by Lady Alyse, and, despite her infatuation
with his friend, vows to win her love. When Geoffrey puts his mind to wooing Alyse, he is
delighted to find her succumbing to his seduction. But when cruel circumstances separate them,
Geoffrey must watch helplessly as Thomas steps in to protect Alyse—and falls in love with her
himself.

As the three courtiers accompany Princess Joanna to her wedding in Spain, they run headlong
into the Black Plague. With her world plunged into chaos, Alyse struggles with her feelings for
both the men she loves. But which love will survive?

EXCERPT:

His mouth dropped open, and he could only stare at her in the dying firelight.

“Oh, Alyse, my love,” he gently gathered her into his arms, “were you afraid to give me this news because we are not yet properly wed? But it makes no difference, sweetheart, as we will be married long ere the babe arrives.”

Alyse shook her head as it lay against his chest. “Nay, Geoffrey, ’tis not that that troubles me.”

“Sweetheart, did you think I would not be pleased that you are to bear my child?”

Weariness pressed her down. “Do you remember when we danced at the princess’s banquet in Bordeaux?”

“Aye, my love.”

“That day I started my courses–and that was the last time I had them, in August.”
