Get in the Holiday SPIRIT and Embrace Your DESTINY, To Own Elizabeth Meyette's Books at a Great Price!

Love's Destiny

by Elizabeth Meyette

Amazon - Holiday Deal now Just $1.99!

Genre: Historical Romance

Length: 282 Pages

Blurb ~

When Emily Wentworth's father dies at sea, her father's friend - and Emily's appointed guardian - Jonathon Brentwood arrives at her home in London to take her with him to the colonies. Emily, just 17, has decided that she is fully capable of taking care of herself and sets out to prove that to her new guardian.​

Emily's one chance to remain in London is to marry, but when the opportunity arises, she knows she would rather follow Jonathon across an ocean to a land in upheaval than to stay safely in London.

But Jonathon's involvement in patriot activity against England disturbs and threatens Emily, a loyal subject of the king. The colonial rebellion is the backdrop for misunderstanding, fear, mistrust, and danger. Will love's destiny ensure that Emily and Jonathon stay together, even in the face of death?

Excerpt ~

“Please sit down, Captain Brentwood,” Emily said coolly as she sat on the end of the settee. To her confusion, Jonathon sat beside her rather than in the chair she had indicated. A crooked smile played around his lips as though he attempted to hide a joke. He thought of the “Little Em” of George’s stories and chuckled to himself. Nothing had prepared him for this beautiful girl who was trying so hard to be a woman.

“We have much to discuss, Miss Wentworth,” he said as Etta returned with a tray carrying the decanter and two crystal glasses.

“Indeed we have, Captain,” she replied.

Etta set the tray on the table in front of Emily. The housekeeper poured brandy into the glasses, and Emily was grateful for she had no idea what an appropriate amount would have been. She thought Etta rather stingy based on what was in each glass, but she took them and handed one glass to Jonathon. “Thank you, Etta; that will be all.” She turned to Jonathon dismissing the housekeeper.

“Hmmmph!” Etta grumbled as she left the room.

Jonathon silently saluted Emily and then took a drink from his glass. Emily sipped hers and tried to choke down the spasms of coughing that threatened to overcome her. She had sampled wine before at social gatherings, but had never tasted brandy. Heat spread down her throat and she blinked the tears out of her eyes causing her to miss the fleeting smile that crossed Jonathon’s face. It was a few minutes before she caught her breath enough to speak.

Love's Spirit

Amazon - Holiday Deal now Just $1.99!

Genre: Historical Romance

Length: 318 Pages

Blurb ~

Emily Brentwood's ultimatum to return to England led to her husband's capture by British troops, but she learns he has escaped and is still alive. She is overjoyed to be unexpectedly reunited with her husband, but Emily is appalled by Jonathon's injuries at the hands of the British, and she blames herself for his imprisonment and torture.

Separated again when he is forced into hiding, Emily clings to his promise to be with her for the birth of their baby. Boldly, she confronts the British officer who attempted to rape her, and she defies the woman who wants her dead.

​Still suffering from his wounds, Jonathon risks his life to reunite with Emily, but their time together is cut short by threats from the British and the scandalous demands of his former lover. Jonathon's physical pain pales in comparison to the torment he feels when he betrays Emily. Standing in the way of their happiness is a British officer with a personal vendetta, and a woman whose vicious intentions threaten Emily's life. Torn between anguish over his betrayal of Emily and his need to ensure her safety, Jonathon risks recapture and certain death when he returns to Brentwood Manor knowing that British soldiers scour the countryside for him.

Both Jonathon and Emily must overcome their guilt and trust that love's spirit will triumph over the obstacles that threaten to keep them apart. Swirling around them is a war in which a new country is born from a demand for liberty and a new love is sparked in the midst of rebellion.

Excerpt ~

Emily Brentwood slowly rose to consciousness steeling herself against the assault of anguish and sorrow that accosted her at every dawn. For the last four months the memory of her beloved husband Jonathon being shot and dragged into a British skiff had been the image that lifted her from her sleep and carried her to waking. The surreal sensation she had felt as that scene had unfolded before her, leaving her to believe that he was dead, seeped through her as if it were all happening again.

But something was different this morning. What was it? She battled waking to delay the pain, but there was a whisper of awareness that eased her reluctance. The sun was not rising; it was slanting in the western sky, and the pungent smell of cedar surrounded her. Slowly coming awake, she started at the sensation of strong arms holding her and warm breath tickling the back of her neck. Jonathon was beside her. She gasped as her eyes flew open.

“Jonathon,” she breathed.

“Love,” he answered sleepily.

She rolled toward him and buried her face in his chest. His scent was intoxicating and the thick mat of hair tickled her nose; she burrowed into him and he kissed the top of her head. Her arms encircled him and pulled him closer, but his gasp reminded her that his injuries were still fresh. She released him.

Author Bio ~

Author, blogger and believer in dreams-come-true, Elizabeth Meyette fell in love with books as a child when her sister read her Goldilocks and the Three Bears. “She had me at ‘Once upon a time…'” Elizabeth confesses. Writing her first book on a dare, she kept Love’s Destiny on her closet shelf for more years than she would like to admit while she taught English and Journalism. Finally she retired early in order to pursue her passion: writing. A friend says she’s not retired, she’s “refired.”

Readers wanted more of the story of Jonathan Brentwood and Emily Wentworth, so Elizabeth got to work on Love’s Spirit. While she loved writing the two historical romances, her muse, Boris, started whispering in her ear characters and plot for The Cavanaugh House. That book was conceived on a trip to upstate New York to visit her family. The Cavanaugh House was a number one paranormal bestseller on Amazon for weeks until Stephen King bumped it to number two.

Elizabeth has also written several children’s books that she hopes to publish in the near future. Her poetry has appeared in various anthologies.

​A native of upstate New York, Elizabeth now lives in Michigan with her husband Richard. They have an agreement that she cannot cook on writing days after he endured burnt broccoli and dry chicken. Fortunately, Rich is an excellent cook.

~ It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Suuuper Kam! Writer, Blogger, Reviewer, She Does It All ~

Today I have Kameron Brook in the spotlight, author, reviewer, blogger. (You can catch her on her blog, Kam's Place, at:

To start off with, tell us a little bit about yourself.

A few years ago, before I dedicated all my time promoting others, I used to write erotic short stories. Through Razor’s Edge Press, I had published four sexy tales. On my own, I published two more deliciously naughty stories. The stories through REP are now no longer in print; however, you can still purchase Dreams Really Do Come True and Naughty Delights at Amazon. (To find out more, visit Kam's Place

Do you have a job outside of writing? What is it and how does it mesh with your writing?

I’m a full time mom to two great kids – a six-year-old daughter and a fifteen-year-old son. I know what you’re thinking, that’s one heckuva age gap. Yeah, but I think of it this way. When he’s sixteen, he will aid me in chauffeuring duties. For now, I’m balancing mom duties, home, and reading all the wonderful books, which appear, on my blog. Good thing I excel at multitasking.

Good thing indeed! What made you switch from writing to reviewing and blogging?

Writing was fun but I got more enjoyment in helping others achieve their goals. I know how hard it is for most authors to get their work noticed, so if my blog assists them in reaching new readers, gaining more sales, then my job is done.

On the behalf of writers everywhere--thank you! What is the hardest thing about reviewing/blogging?

I’ve literally read well over a thousand books – which means I’ve had my share of hits and misses. Man, I hate when I have to write about a book that fell flat for me. Bad critiques are hard to write and harder for an author to read. That’s why in every review, I will write at least one positive point.

That is difficult! Your blog, Kam’s Place ( ) has a bookshelf with loads of books on it as the background, which I feel is very appropriate for you! You zipped through reading several of my books at a rate that I found astounding. How many books do you read in a month’s time? Do you tend to gravitate to certain genres? 

Yeah, I’ve had many people comment on how fast I’ve read their book(s). I even had an author quiz me on his book because he didn’t believe I could’ve possibly finished it in a day. I won’t mention his name but I’m proud to announce I passed his test with flying colors. Now, he knows why I go by the twitter handle @superkambrook.

As for part two of the question, I love a vast array of genres. I pretty much read whatever lands in my greedy hands. Romance, mystery, comics – don’t care, just hand me a book and watch my smile bloom.

Strangely enough, I met another fast reader recently and he said the same thing, that people (teachers, specifically) questioned how much he was comprehending if he was reading that fast. But his brain, like yours, just worked at super speed. For someone like me, whose brain seems to work in slow motion (it gets there eventually, but it takes a while) that is phenomenal! But not only is your talent impressive, it is also helpful for other readers. For those of us who love to read but find it hard to squeeze in the time, it's important that the books we read be quality books. So it is great to have someone like you who can cover a lot of ground and lead us in the right direction when we go to choose a new read. 

We'll finish with a few questions that are just for fun. Name your favorite children's story.

I didn’t have a favorite. Even back then, I’d read whatever I could find. Not surprising, literature class was my favorite subject.

Yeah. Not really a fair question, is it? Who was your hero when you were a child, and what did you do to be like them?

My mom is most definitely my hero. She raised three kids (alone) while still attempting to master the English language. She showed me how to be a strong, independent woman. She also taught me the value of a dollar and how to appreciate everything I have in life. She believes in “paying it forward” and so do I. And now, so do my kids. 

Your mom sounds like a special woman. What are your three favorite smells?

I love the smell of clean sheets, a new book, and my husband. No matter what cologne or body wash he uses, I just have to sniff him when we hug/snuggle/or make love. That’s not odd, right?

No, not at all. Thanks for joining us today, Kam! Again, readers, if you want to find out more about Kam, her writing and/or reviewing work, go to Kam's Place ( and tell her M.J. sent ya! ;)

~ OPERATION MIDNIGHT ~ It's Not About Raiding The Fridge! ~

Welcome back my new co-host, Sharon C. Cooper! I've decided Sharon is my co-host because she is so prolific, she's on here more than me! Sharon writes exciting, sexy, sassy books and I can't wait to hear about her newest, so I'll shut up now! Take it away, Sharon!

I’ve always enjoyed books with a theme of romantic reunions and second chances. Mix that with a little suspense and I’m in book nirvana! That’s one of the reasons why I created the Reunited Series a few years ago. The series follows the lives of men bitten by the love bug who went on to capture the hearts of some unsuspecting women. This last couple in Operation Midnight - Cameron (Wiz) and Olivia Miller, are no different.

In love since their teens, Wiz and Olivia’s relationship has endured challenges that no couple should have to experience, but through it all, they’ve survived…until now. Now, there are moments when they’re not sure if they really know each other. It doesn’t help that Olivia has requested something from Wiz that he can’t…and won’t give her. Olivia is slow to understand his resistance.

But let me ask you. What would happen if someone you loved lured you to a drug house and then left you there for dead? If you lived to tell about it, could you forgive that person? Would you forgive them?

Wiz and Olivia are faced with that situation. They are on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to forgive and forget. And a past that they thought was buried for good comes back to haunt them, putting them at odds. Though true love should be able to stand the test of time, will that be the case for Wiz and Olivia?

Below is a little peek at Operation Midnight.

Blurb ~

No bad deed goes unpunished…

Former Navy SEAL turned private investigator, Cameron “Wiz” Miller, has loved only one woman, his ex-wife, Olivia. She’s beautiful, talented and the sweetest person he knows. With plans to remarry her, there is nothing she could ask of him that he wouldn’t do except … one thing.

Olivia has loved Wiz since high school. He is her hero. Her protector. She understands his hesitation to search for the woman who left her for dead. Forgiveness has been a long time coming, but Olivia has made peace with what happened. Wiz hasn't. For him, forgiveness is not an option.

But the sins of the past have come back to haunt Wiz, placing Olivia in danger. He must tap into his military training and every alliance he has formed over the years to save her. But is it too late? Will he and Olivia ever get that happily-ever-after?

Excerpt ~

“I want her dead.”

Wiz paced the length of the small, musty cellar, his pulse pounding in his ears. He wished the steady drumming would drown out the anger seeping into his soul. Wound tighter than a man staring down the barrel of a semi-automatic gun, he took a few cleansing breaths to release the anxiety roaring through his veins. It wasn’t working. Nothing was working.

He kept moving. Except for his combat boots stomping against the dusty concrete floor and the low hum of a nearby furnace, the space was quiet. Gagged and bound, flanked by his two best friends, the woman who had slithered into his life and almost destroyed everything he held dear, sat glaring at him. She wiggled in the hard wooden chair trying to free herself to no avail. Her eyes, cold and unyielding followed his every move, making him hate her that much more.

He stopped and stood before her, feeling nothing but disgust. Red, glassy eyes and the slight shakes confirmed she was high. Hell, considering her condition, she wouldn’t even feel the torture he intended to inflict on her, but it would help him. It would help him try to piece his life back together. It would help him feel less guilt for not being on American soil to protect his wife. It would help him get retribution for the life this bitch had taken.

A life for a life.

“Wiz, think about what you’re planning to do here,” his friend Quinn said, his gloved hand propped against the closed door and the low rumble of his voice cutting through Wiz’s thoughts. “Let me handle this. I can take care of everything and you can head back to the hospital. Your wife needs you. Besides, you have too much to lose.”

“I’ve already lost almost everything and thanks to this woman, Olivia is fighting for her life.”

~ HELLBOUND May Leave You Spellbound! New Read From Andrew P. Weston! ~

Please welcome back author Andrew P. Weston with his newest, HELLBOUND (which, he assures me, is not an autobiography)! Here's more:

Blurb ~

Hell Bound (Heroes in Hell)

by Andrew P. Weston

Length: 406 Pages

In hell, none of the condemned believes they deserve to be there. And that’s fine, so long as they’re not foolish enough to try and do anything about it. For those that do, there’s always Satan’s Reaper–and chief bounty hunter–Daemon Grim.

Feared throughout the many layers of the underverse, no one in their right mind dares to cross him.

However, when Grim discovers that someone has attempted to evade injustice, and seems hell-bent on gaining access to ancient angelic artifacts proscribed since the time of the original rebellion in heaven, circumstances point to the fact they may be doing just that.

The question is...why?
Thus begins an investigation that leads Grim throughout the many contradictory and baffling levels of the underworld, where he unearths a conspiracy that is not only eating its way like a cancer through the highest echelons of Hellion society, but one which threatens the very stability of Satan’s rule.

As you can imagine, Grim’s response is bloody, brutal, and despicably wicked.

Hell Bound – In hell, everyone can hear you scream...
