Ariella Talix on Blog Tour for The Golden Rush, March 28-April 20

Posted By amy @ 6:52 am | No Comments

The Golden Rush
by Ariella Talix

Publication Date: April 5, 2022
Ringmaster Publishing

Genre: Historical Romance

 

 

Exhausted, starving, and fretting about her ailing father, Adeline Hart disembarked in San Francisco after a harrowing sea voyage. The last thing she needed was immediate marriage proposals from multiple men. Women, at that time, were as scarce as hen’s teeth.

Jasper Langley, handsome and dark with sadness in his eyes, and Royal Dawson, who personified sunshine with his golden glow, provided the comfort that Adeline needed. Everyone else was rushing off to the gold fields or trying to carry her away.

Jasper and Royal forged a special bond during their treacherous overland journey to California. They arrived before gold was discovered. Luck and hard work made them extremely wealthy men.

San Francisco was lawless and wild. The ramshackle shanty town quickly became the fastest growing city in North America. Tremendous opportunities existed for ambitious people to succeed. The unscrupulous also flourished.

There were times when it was necessary to be reckless and daring just to survive—for the good as well as the wicked.

No one was safe. Including Adeline.

This dramatic MMF romance is a steamy love story filled with danger and suspense.

Available for Pre-Order on Amazon

They could be walking into a trap. The authorities made it their business to lie in wait for smugglers and thieves. Celeste wondered which tree could conceal them. With each question, her temperature rose. She no longer cared about whether anyone heard or saw her. Let the guards come. How dare she be used as a pawn in this game.

Montmartre, Paris, 1857. Unable to move on with her life until she finds her missing mother, twenty-year-old Celeste Bazin arrives from San Francisco in her native France. She takes up with the charming Carlo di Rudio and a band of Italian and French revolutionaries who wish to overthrow Emperor Napoleon III. If Celeste agrees to act as a courier to the Court of Compiègne, revolutionary Odéon de la Mere will provide her transportation where rumor says her mother has been living.

She embarks on a journey through France with the ruggedly handsome Odéon through checkpoints thick with imperial guards, secret agents, and devious spies. Celeste ignores the warnings and persists in her search despite growing fear that her mother might be a murderer. Only when she joins the plot to assassinate the emperor does she realize the power of her mother’s secrets and the depth of a love that transcends time.

Based on historical events and the author’s on-site research in France.

Donna Scott on Blog Tour for The Tacksman’s Daughter, March 14-23

The Tacksman’s Daughter
by Donna Scott

Publication Date: December 27, 2021
Atlantic Publishing

 

 

Scotland, 1692. To escape a brutal winter storm, King William’s regiments descend on the small village of Glencoe. Caitriona Cameron, the tacksman’s daughter, cannot forget her unpleasant encounter the last time English troops appeared. She senses the army’s arrival might not be as innocent as it seems, but her warnings go unheeded. Not even MacIain, the MacDonald clan chief, listens. After twelve days of billeting in the villagers’ homes, the soldiers attack, committing one of the greatest atrocities in Highland history.

Cait escapes the assault with the help of Sergeant Edward Gage who is accused of being a traitor for not taking up arms against the MacDonalds. Edward is hunted by his debauched half-brother, Alexander, who stands to lose everything if King William attaints their father for his treasonous past deeds. With bad blood between them, Alexander sets out to capture Edward to prove his loyalty and save himself from ruin.

Cait and Edward travel to Edinburgh to confront the men they suspect are behind the attack, unaware that Alexander is headed there as well. Although Cait is convinced the chief of Clan Campbell is responsible, Edward suspects something much more sinister—that the orders came from higher up, possibly even from the king himself.

As accusations of betrayal, deceit, and treason abound, they are all trapped in a web of intrigue and danger, but not everyone will escape.

Praise

“The Tacksman’s Daughter is a fascinating read, at the heart of which is a truly horrifying historical massacre. The author brings the times alive in vivid detail, skillfully (and often humorously) weaving in ancient Gaelic language. Readers will be riveted!”—KD Alden, author of A Mother’s Promise

“. . . it’s a gripping read, and the author has a real skill for keeping the reader turning pages.” –SS, Penguin RH

“[Scott] does an excellent job of transporting her reader back to the seventeenth century Highlands. The dialogue felt so authentic, and the characters and Scottish landscape really jumped off the page.” -KK, Simon and Schuster
