Protecting the Single Mom by Catherine Lanigan (Blog Tour & #Giveaway)

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Book Tour Launch for
Protecting the Single Mom
By Catherine Lanigan


Hi, and welcome to my Prism Tour for “Protecting the Single Mom”. I’ll bet you’re wondering why I chose this tour title for a Heartwarming story in little old sweet small town Indian Lake, right? Right off the bat, let me tell you that in the real world, there are a lot of dangers, but falling in love, now that’s a real risk. How many people get married for all the wrong reasons? Just check the divorce statistics. In my opinion, love is too often discarded and other “sensible choices” enter the picture. Risking your heart for a lifetime with another person? It’s not practical. It’s nonsensical and yet, we all dream of that one true love. Our soul mate. Our adored one that we will spend all of this lifetime sharing, caring and creating, sigh, a family.

But what if, your life choices had driven you to that place where of all the things that could happen to you, love was never it. Impossible. Not to be discussed or negotiated?

That’s what happened to Cate Sullivan. She ran away from her abusive husband with nothing, nothing but the clothes on her back. No ID. Money, credit card. Just guts and courage. And she was pregnant. She hitchhiked across state lines and wound up in Indian Lake where she changed her name and has been living in disguise for six years. Cate, AKA Susan Kramer, has created a false life for her  six year old son, Danny, and things are going well—until Detective Trent Davis---aggressively bent on bringing a murderous drug lord to justice---discovers that the drug lord is Cate’s ex-husband.

Trent has lived his life as a Special Forces Sniper in Afghanistan and now on the Indian Lake Police Department, head of the Drug Task Force Team…in a Danger Zone. Shadows of his past haunt his nights and afflict his days. Trent can never be with any woman, yet Cate has burrowed deep in his heart.

He’s about to draw Cate and her little son, Danny, into his circle of danger, by convincing Cate to be the bait to draw her ex-husband into Trent’s trap.

Cate finds that she’s not so brave after all, when she falls in love with Trent, the one man she can never and should never love.

Her instincts tell her to trust Detective Trent Davis. That he's more than just a handsome cop doing his duty. The former Green Beret has even formed a fast bond with her son. But there's something he's not telling her. Some darkness that keeps him from giving in to the feelings she knows are growing between them. Cate trusts Trent to keep her safe, but the real question is whether he'll trust himself with her heart.

Weekly Update #208, lots of reviews coming up...

Welcome to my Weekly Update where I post my blog's schedule for the week!

I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book ReviewerTynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves and Mailbox Monday showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week, It's Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted by Kathryn @ Book Date, and I've also just recently added linking up to The Sunday Salon on Facebook.

We had a dip in temperatures last Thursday that I loved! It will be the last we'll see of low 70s here for some time. I can already feel summer coming. That might be weird for a lot of you guys who live where there is still snow, but in Arizona the summer comes early and stays for some time. I'll take it over most other places though. :)

This week shows another interesting mix of books. I've been told I should stick to a genre for more blog traffic (like only YA or only adult romance or something), but I just have a hard time doing that and I started this blog as a hobby to share what I love, so I don't really want to limit what I'm allowed to read. Do you prefer blogs who only focus on one thing or those who review various genres? Just curious.

I'm starting a new monthly newsletter for those who don't want daily emails and to spotlight specific giveaways and posts. If you're interested in signing up, you can sign up here (same thing that's now on my sidebar):

This week there are a lot of reviews. Actually, all but one are reviews. Here's what to expect:

mystery. Read an excerpt and enter the Amazon gift card giveaway below...

The Wolf Mirror

YA Historical Romance, Suspense
Paperback & ebook, ? Pages
February 14th 2017


Changing places doesn’t always help you see things differently.

Cassie throws the first punch in a brawl at Winchester Abbey Girl’s School. Her subsequent suspension is a glitch in Cassie’s master plan; Finish School/Get Job/Leave Home (and never come back). As punishment her mother banishes her to Ludlow Park, their creepy ancestral home. In the dark of a stormy night Cassie finds herself transported to 1714, the beginning of the Georgian period.

With the help of a lady’s maid and an obnoxious gentleman, Mr Charles Stafford, Cassie must unravel the mysterious illness afflicting Lord Miller. If Lord Miller kicks the bucket the house goes to Reginald Huxley, the brainless cousin from London.

Cassie’s task is to figure out who is poisoning the Lord of Ludlow without exposing herself to the ridicule of her peers, getting herself committed to the asylum or worse, married off to the first man who will have her.

Cassie must learn to hold her tongue, keep her pride in check and reign in her rebellious nature – because the fate of her entire family, for generations, rests on her shoulders.

Meanwhile, Lady Cassandra Miller frantically searches for her smelling salts or her trusted governess Miss. Blythe, whose soothing advice she would dearly love. Instead Cassandra finds some woman and a boy squatting in the Ludlow mansion; her father, her lady’s maid and all the servants have magically disappeared.

Tell-a-vision, the In-her-net, horseless carriages and women wearing pantaloons; Cassandra is afraid that she might have inhaled fowl air causing her to temporarily lose her senses.

Only when both girls can get over their pride, societal prejudices and self-importance will they be able to return to their rightful century. Until then, they are free to wreak maximum damage on their respective centuries.

Project Emergence

March 14th 2017 by Month9Books


An ancient Hopi myth says people arrived on tiny silver pods that fell from the sky.

But the truth is far more terrifying.

Two-hundred fifty-eight teens are sent from a dying Earth to a terraformed Mars as part of the Emergence Program, mankind’s last hope before solar flares finish off their planet and species. Among the brave pioneers are sixteen-year-old Joey Westen and her twin brother, Jesse.

After only minutes in space, something triggers a total ship lock down.

With the help of their roommates, the Matsuda twins (notorious hackers and shady secret-keepers), Joey and Jesse stumble onto an extremist plot to sabotage the Emergence Program.

But Joey and Jesse didn’t travel to the deepest pits of space and leave their mother behind to be picked off in a high-tech tin can. They’ll lie, hack, ​and ​even kill to survive the voyage and make it to Mars.
