Promo Post: “Stranded at the Sandbar”, by Jess Mastorakos

Hello Friends!

Today I bring you a promo post of a romance novel, one that is a military romance. Since I’m from Portugal, it’s quite interesting to see and read these kinds of book in this subgenre. I don’t know if they are realistic or not, so I go in for the romance and the excitement that may exist.

This book and the previous ones in the series are now one my TBR list for the future. And if you like these kinds of books, and this one intrigues you, go for it, and later on let me know your thoughts.

Stranded at the Sandbar“, written by Jess Mastorakos, is a romance novel, in the military romance subgenre, the third book of the Kailua Marines Series, published on ‎ June 30, 2021.


Synopsis

57742947. sy475

People dream of being stranded in paradise… until it happens for real.

You know those dumb quizzes on social media that tell you to pick the one person you wouldn’t mind being stuck on a deserted island with? Well, a few months ago, I would have said Kate, hands down. Easy day. We had a great thing going, and I even thought she was the one. Until she ghosted me.

Now she’s back and wants to make amends. She had a reason for what she did, even if it hurt, so against my better judgment I invited her to go fishing on my boat. I definitely didn’t plan for what happened next. And the fierce need inside me to protect her at all costs? That surprised me too.

Now we’re stuck together. And even though there’s a chance that this girl is the one for me, I just can’t shake what happened last time. Not with a deployment looming. What happens if history repeats itself and I’m not here to stop it?

But first we need to get through this whole being stranded thing. And then after we’re rescued, we’ll deal with the rest. Because there’s no time for romance when you’re busy trying to survive, right?

Stranded at the Sandbar is book three in this sweet military romance series and is told in both points of view in first person. Each book can be read as a standalone but are fun to read in order!

Hello Friends!

Ready for a promo post? This book is going to be out tomorrow and it’s a romantic suspense so I’m very curious about it.

Midsummer Man“ written by Zelah Roberts, is a Sweet Romantic Suspense, published 15th June 2021 by Totally Bound.


Synopsis

Hostages of fate…rescued by love.

Holly Mason’s past has left her with many things—a powerful need for independence and self-reliance, enduring memories of pain and fear…and an intense dislike of alpha males.

Billionaire Sir Mac Sinclair has been wounded by the betrayal of his fiancée and overpowered by his own ultra-protective alpha-male instincts after his sister is kidnapped. He has no time for romance.

But when Mac meets Holly at the beautiful Midsummer Ball, fate intervenes. The irresistible, timeless magic of midsummer seduces them into stealing one stunning, secret night of passion together.

But one night is not enough… When danger threatens, Mac and Holly are forced back together. Can they confront the traumas of the past and learn to trust each other to overcome the dangers of the present?

When Ariana Costas heard her twin sister, Zoe, had disappeared, Ari left Vermont and returned to her Jersey girl roots to find her. Ari didn’t know what to expect from her search, but danger around every corner, dodging bullets, and a hunk in a leather jacket saving her was not it.

He thought she was someone else.

Detective Quinn Donovan thought he located Zoe Costas. Beautiful, dark-haired, and a perfect match to the description he’d been given, he believes he has his lady. Except as it turns out, the gorgeous woman is Zoe’s twin Ariana, the college professor.

About the Author

I was born into a large, East End family and grew up in the overcrowded streets clustered around the Tower of London. I still live in East London, just five miles from where I was born. I feel that it is that my background that gives my historical East London stories their distinctive authenticity.

I first fell in love with history at school when I read Anya Seton’s book Katherine. Since then I have read everything I can about English history but I am particularly fascinated by the 18th and 19th century and my books are set in this period. I just love my native city and the East End in particular which is why I write stories to bring that vibrant area of London alive.

I am also passionate about historical accuracy and I enjoy researching the details almost as much as weaving the story. If one of my characters walks down a street you can be assured that that street actually existed. Take a look at Jean’s East End and see the actual location where my characters played out their stories.

I hope you are all doing well this lovely Saturday. It is a very special day for so many reasons. Besides de announcement I will be making, and the review, I bring you now a promo post.

Song of the Nightingale“, written by Marilyn Pemberton, is a Historical Fiction novel published on December 14th 2019 by The Conrad Press.


Synopsis

Song of the Nightingale - Front coverPhilippe, the narrator of this tale, is secretary to Count De Lorenzo, and lover to the Count’s young wife. He is tasked with buying young boys from poor villagers, having them castrated and taking them to Florence to be taught to sing as castrati. The parents are told that their sons are especially blessed with their wonderful voices and they do not object to the boys making a physical sacrifice in order to thank and praise the Lord; nor to the bag of gold they are given in exchange.

The boys are innocents, victims of circumstances beyond their control. Surely they can have nothing to do with a barber’s mysterious death, or the suicide of an abusive Jesuit priest?

This is a tale of passion, revenge, guilt, regret, loss and redemption.
