Title: Sapphire’s Divinity
Author: Justine Winter
Release Date: 27th August 2014
Genre: Paranormal Romance
I was a hybrid werewolf with a secret destiny shadowed by a prophecy the Ancient Guardians foretold. The same Ancient Guardians that had organised the annual Alpha summit Riley had been summoned to.
Since Jackson’s demon threat everyone was powered up on overtime at the gym. Train, sweat, repeat. Train, sweat, repeat.
But all that rage-filled preparation wasn't enough. We were being targeted by something new, and it didn't stop there.
The summit was proving to be my nemesis. Egotistical morons challenged me with threats to the one I loved, and I knew I couldn't endure a life without Riley.
Besides all of that, there was one thing I was finally understanding about the supernatural. Nothing was as it seemed.
Not even me.

About the Author:
I’ve always lived a life based on my imagination, from hopeless dreams of romance to concocting alternate realities involving supernaturals. I’m completely fascinated with anything hero-related, and often speculate which superpower I’d possess. I haven’t settled on one yet.
I was born in England, and currently reside in Wales, UK. I love to write, and most days you’ll find me happily tapping away at the computer whilst in my pyjama-clad bubble. I also spend my time reading, and if that isn’t enough I’m often in the kitchen baking up a treat.

Casper Covington had his music, women, and pretty much anything he wanted at his disposal. But the one thing that plagued his thoughts constantly was the one thing he couldn't have. The girl he met six months ago. A drunken one night stand that he couldn't get out of his head. The only thing he remembered from that night was her green eyes and the ivy tattoo that stretched the length of her body. In his attempts to put an end to the tortuous dreams of the mysterious girl, Casper’s attention is caught by the new bartender. There’s just something so familiar about her that his need to get to know her becomes more troublesome than he expected.
Alexis Radcliff was raised by her four brothers making her as tough as nails on the outside but on the inside she wanted what every girl did – someone to love her, faults and all. She would be damned if she admitted that out loud and made a point to show she could use men just as easily as they used women. But when a sexy musician starts to show interest in Alex she has a hard time convincing herself to stay away. Alex knows everyone has secrets but hers are ones she doesn't want to share. But when she can no longer fight her feelings, her dark past slowly starts to unravel.
Can true love conquer all? Or are past ghosts a haunting premonition of what lies ahead?

About the author
I live in a fantasy world and have an over active imagination. But the best part about that is I never stop creating new characters and new stories to share. I love writing and expressing myself in a way that everyone else can enjoy as well. I work in the salon most days, but when i'm not doing hair, I'm writing or reading.
EDMONTON, ALBERTA 200 years after the publication of Pride and Prejudice, Melanie Kerr’s new novel treats readers to the complete and dramatic history of Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham.
The novel is entitled Follies Past: a Prequel to Pride and Prejudice, and to read it is to step back into the charming world of Jane Austen’s England, to pass a few more hours with some of her beloved characters, sympathetically portrayed as they might have been before ever they came to Netherfield.
In Pride and Prejudice, everything hinges on a letter which Mr. Darcy gives Elizabeth – a letter setting forth all his dealings with Mr. Wickham. These facts, supplied by Austen herself, are at the heart of Follies Past. The drama begins almost a year before the opening of Pride and Prejudice itself, at Pemberley, at Christmas. We follow young Georgiana Darcy to London, to Ramsgate and to the brink of a perilous elopement. Along the way, readers will discover a host of new characters, with compelling histories of their own. Authentic in its use of language and meticulously researched, Follies Past is a truly diverting entertainment.
Meet the Author:
Melanie Kerr studied linguistics, English and theatre at the University of British Columbia and law at the University of Alberta. Melanie is a reckless lover of clotted cream, a staunch defender of the semi-colon and a fierce opponent of unpleasant music. She wooed her current and only husband with false promises of skill at word games and eternally good hair. She lives in Edmonton, where she raises her two sons, sews her own Regency costumes, runs a Jane Austen Fun Club, blogs on all things old and English, endeavours to take over the world and occasionally practices law. Follies Past is her first novel.
Melanie Kerr has not only penned and published Follies Past, she has also scripted, directed and produced three film-style book trailers, for which she personally designed and created all the period costumes. She also planned and executed a highly successful book launch last November at the Hotel Macdonald, featuring live music, dramatic reading and a real live Mr. Darcy. She is currently planning a book tour to promote her novel, while raising her two young sons and carrying on a busy legal practice.
The book is currently available for Kindle at http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00GD76KJY and in paperback at http://www.createspace.com/4524790.

Follies Past: a Prequel to Pride and Prejudice by Melanie Kerr
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have to admit I had never read Pride & Prejudice – and never really had an attraction to historical romance novels…
Follies Past was fantastic. It took me a little bit to get into only because Ms Karr stayed true to Jane Austen’s style and wrote in the language of the time. Once I got the swing of it the story was so wonderfully written that I had to keep reading!
Because I had no previous knowledge of the story and characters, the story line was just that a story…and by the end of it I knew I had to read Pride and Prejudice to see what happened next to the wonderful characters.
So after reading P&P, Follies Past had given me quite an insight into the characters – especially Mr Wickham. Over all, Ms Karr has written the prequel in beautiful tribute to the very famous novel. Ms Karr clearly shows her linguistic skills as well as her very talented writing ability.
If you are a lover of historical romance then you will love this book…if you are a lover of all things Austen or Darcy then you will most definitely love this book.
I am a convert now for sure…and I have a bundle of historical romances in my kindle library just waiting to be read. A wonderful book Ms Karr, I look forward to reading more of your work!
Being with the same man since she was 18, 26 year old widow Jazz Mickelson is hoping to catch up on all the life experiences that could have been hers had she not leapt into a committed relationship so young.
Julian St. Sauveur is looking for three things: romance, comfort and trust. He mistakenly thought he had them once many years ago. He sees potential for him and Jazz but knows it is too soon for her.
Will she accept his unusual proposition, one that allows him to hold on to her while she catches up on life?...and will she choose him after experiencing all the wonders that await her?
Find out as Jazz and Julian explore their potential...
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OMG! I am so in love with Jazz and Julian.
Jazz is on a journey of self discovery. After years of sacrifice, she finds herself single and unsure of who she truly is.
A chance meeting on a flight to France, Jazz meet the extremely hot and enigmatic Julian. An instant attraction has them agreeing to spend time together during her stay in France.
Totally out of character and some what reckless, Jazz throws caution to the wind and decides to have a hot holiday fling with the sexy Cajun. What has she got to lose? A couple of weeks of hot sex, letting her hair down and just forgetting about her past is just what the doctor ordered.
Julian is a successful, wealthy, world renowned architect. His reputation precedes him and people fall over themselves to have his attention. While Jazz is thrilled to have his attention, she is constantly feeling out of her depth and out of place in his company.
The more time they spend together, the more they realise that this is so much more than a fling. The problem is both have baggage that holds them back from being open to the possibilities.
Jazz spends a lot of time trying to keep things in perspective, but little does she know that Julian is determined to win her heart and he will wait as long as it takes to do so. The question is can he convince Jazz that their connection is so much more than the hot and steamy sex they share? Can Jazz trust that she deserves the love and affection of this beautiful man? Can they get their feelings out before Jazz's vacation is over?
I know I am barracking for team Jazz/Julian all the way...book two is awaiting my perusal...because I just cannot get enough of this gorgeous story and the wonderful characters Ms Sloane has created. You have a new fan right here Ms Sloane...I am dedicated to travel this journey with Jazz and Julian all the way to the very end!
I’m an only child of amazing parents who are not only still with me but vibrant. I grew up on a grain farm in rural Manitoba Canada. Between the rents and an amazing “aunt and uncle” (they were the farmers a mile down the road), they instilled a love of reading in me at an early age. My parents never censored anything I read and much of my early allowance and birthday money was spent on paperbacks. I have a vivid recollection of being in third grade reading about this kid who was the subject of some kind of experimentation and the word “electroencephalogram” was in it—I asked the teacher what that was and she had no idea.
I devoured everything from L. M. Montgomery and Nancy Drew to Gone with the Wind, Go Ask Alice and Jacqueline Susann as a preteen. In my senior year of High School, one of our assignments was to write a 1,500 word short story. Mine was a romance and my teacher gave me an A+ with a comment that it was a “great soap opera” – and that was from a guy! I thought about journalism for college, but this was almost 40 years ago and the nearest school offering it was almost 1,500 miles away, too far for a rural country girl. Instead I studied performance piano, having taken lessons since the age of 5, completely useless in the real world but music was a huge priority in our family and I was surrounded by it growing up. My dad and his siblings and my grandfather all played multiple instruments (good times for family occasions!) so music is another one of my passions. I have been fortunate to have parents with whom I saw and spent time in every province of Canada except Newfoundland and who with I visited over ten states of the USA before I left home and a husband who is a Montreal native and for many years travelled world-wide for work allowing me to experience many more places, many in North American while riding my Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail!
Making my way through life I have always been able to maintain my reading habit. One of my fantasies has always been to write a best-selling book and over the years I have written down bits and pieces but never went further or explored the publishing world. That possibility seriously didn’t exist when I knew it would be endless rejection and waiting; wasted money on postage. The advent of electronic media and self-publishing has changed all that. Without doubt the most wonderful, scary thing I have ever done is embark on this journey of writing what I hope will be wonderful stories for other bibliophiles! Marrying my hubs of 27 years was wonderful too, and although it maybe should have been scary as he asked me and I answered yes on our first date, it wasn’t… And bear in mind that we had only met two weeks previously and only seen each other in a group setting a couple of times during those two weeks.
To put your imagination out there, especially in the genre of erotic romance fiction is enough to make the most extroverted individual cringe. But I use this alter-ego of Peyton Sloane as an excuse for everything inappropriate, and it provides the opportunity for those who know me in real life to respond in a like manner which is proving to be the most fun! For now, I write and still have a full-time career. My home life is the hubs and our two little divas (Schi-poos from the same litter). Writing is something I hope to be doing well into my retirement—one of the few pastimes where you are not limited by the scourge of age on your physical being, and, the deity willing, my mind stays intact will still be a passion 25 years from now! I have heard writers speak often about how their characters write their own stories, aside from the “authorgasms” that happy readers give me, I hope I never stop being amazed by this writing process. I have cried, laughed till my sides hurt and railed at my characters for their actions —through the editing process as well…when I know exactly what’s going to happen. I find it mystical how the story and characters take on a life of their own. May everyone who reads about them enjoy their lives as much as I!
