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!

Guest Post: “The Lady in the Veil”, by Allie Cresswell

Hello Friends!

You may be wondering what today’s post is about. Allie Cresswell‘s new book is out and I bring you a guest post to celebrate it. Allie’s message. Bellow you will also find the author bio and the blurb to “The Lady in the Veil” with the purchase links.

Enjoy!

Guest Message

I think it is a sad fact of life that that a person looks like is given far more importance than what they are like as people.

Although social media, TV, magazines and adverts tend to be full of young, beautiful and well-toned human beings, the world isn’t. Speaking personally, as a woman past sixty, my grey hair, sagging body and wrinkles have taken a bit of getting used to. I’ve never been a beautiful person, certainly never well-toned—although I was once young. I have no problem being inside this ‘old lady’ carapace but I’ll admit that catching sight of myself in a mirror (or on my daughter’s Instagram) is a shock.

The reason these things have been on my mind lately is my new novel, The Lady in the Veil. It has turned out to be about being judged by appearances. The eponymous character—Georgina—hides herself from public view for reasons that she does not quite understand. Her mother is extremely retiring, shying from the possibility of being recognised, and Georgina has assimilated this behaviour. Also, a very unpleasant encounter in her pubescent years has given her cause to distrust her appearance; it has an unnerving effect on people. It distracts from who she is. There is something quite extraordinary about her appearance. Increasingly, she hides herself from view, adopting a thick veil.

When she is forced to go to London, where the 1835 season is at its height, far from affording her anonymity, the veil marks Georgina out. Society gossips are galvanised; who is the mysteriously veiled lady? And what horrors does her veil conceal? A modern equivalent of this might be cosmetic surgery that goes wrong; the subject is looked at—but for all the wrong reasons. The kindest thing would be to say nothing, but people are not kind and social media goes crazy with cruel pictures, speculation and scorn. My character finds herself the subject of the same kind of feeding-frenzy. If she had hoped—via the cloaking mechanism of the veil—to be judged for her personal qualities rather than for her appearance, she is sorely disappointed.

What surprised me about the way my story developed was that Georgina’s veil not only skews the way she is seen, but also obscures the way she sees. Necessarily, to keep her face hidden, the gauze of the veil must be thick. How, then, did she see out? My research suggested that the fabric of the veil would be fabricated or decorated in such a way as to allow a greater transparency across the eyes. But it seemed to me impossible that the wearer’s vision could not be hampered. At one point Georgina describes everything ‘as seen through a dirty window’; she is suspicious and distrustful of the outside world, fearful without quite knowing why.

Not only does she not see the world clearly, she does not see herself clearly either. ‘I never look in a mirror,’ she says. How can she expect to be seen, valued, accepted by others if she does not see, value or accept herself?

The Lady in the Veil is the story of a young woman who needs to see and love herself, written by an older woman who, perhaps, needs to do the same.

~Allie Cresswell

Synopsis

What secrets hide beneath the veil? When her mother departs for a tour of the continent, Georgina is sent from the rural backwaters to stay with her cousin, George Talbot, in London. The 1835 season is at its height, but Georgina is determined to attend neither balls nor plays, and to eschew Society. She hides her face beneath an impenetrable veil. Her extraordinary appearance only sets off gossip and speculation as to her identity. Who is the mysterious lady beneath the veil?

The Lady in the Veil continues the story of the Talbots in The House in the Hollow but stands equally well alone.

Promo Post: “Midsummer Man”, Zelah Roberts

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?

Promo Post: “Vida Censurada” de Francisco Ramalheira

Olá meus queridos amigos!

Hoje venho divulgar um livro de uma editora portuguesa fantástica, Edições Velha Lenda.

Vida Censurada“, escrito por Francisco Ramalheira, é um livro histórico, que será publicado a 15 de março de 2021 por Edições Velha Lenda.


Existem diverso géneros literários que adoro. Quer os mais abrangentes, quer os mais especificos.

Ficção Histórica é um desses géneros abrangentes que adoro. Isto porque não leio apenas romances históricos (regency, victorian, saga…), não, eu leio históricos.

Todos têm em comum a presença de um ambiente social e cultural durante um determinado período de tempo. E os livros históricos são sobre as pessoas que nele viviam.

Adoro compreender como uma personagem (que pode ser fictícia ou inspirada em alguém real) lidava com as circunstâncias da realidade em que vivia. Gosto bastante de ler e debater comigo própria sobre as mudanças que determinada sociedade e cultura teve (ou não) numa comparação com os meus valores e com a circunstância atual do mundo.

Algo maravilhoso deste livro é o facto de se que se foca na nossa história. Num período histórico que falamos na escola, que nos contam na rua, que os mais velhos relembram.

Por isso… Obrigada, Velha Lenda, por apostarem em históricos. Obrigada, Francisco, por escreveres sobre a nossa história.


Sinopse

56668362. sy475

Em 1926, a Primeira República é deposta e no seu lugar é implementada a Ditadura Militar, dando assim início ao regime autoritário mais longo da Europa Ocidental, no século XX. Ao mesmo tempo que a República caía, dois meninos de dez anos encontravam-se na Colina Verde para, despreocupadamente, brincarem e partilharem histórias.

Vida Censurada conta a história de vida de dois melhores amigos, João Maia e Toni Ribeiro, ao longo dos quarenta e oito anos de Ditadura em Portugal, acompanhando o seu crescimento, entrada na vida adulta e separação, quando o rumo que dão à sua vida torna impossível a manutenção desta amizade de infância: João procura combater o regime, enquanto Toni ingressa na PVDE.

Esta obra é o recordar de um período que faz parte do lado mais obscuro da nossa História e que nunca, em situação alguma, pode voltar.

Liberdade: sempre

Não se esqueçam de adicionar este livro na vossa TBR do Goodreads: Vida Censurada
