One man's journey to avenge love... Clanless by Jennifer Jenkins (Cover & Chapter Reveal & Giveaway) #FridayReveals #Month9Squad #Month9Books

Welcome to the Cover & Chapter Reveal for
Clanless by Jennifer Jenkins
Coming October 4, 2016 from Month9Books...

Message from the Author

Clanless is Gryphon's story in the way Nameless was Zo's. It encompasses the struggle of self discovery and taking the hard road to find happiness. At its heart though, this book is a love story, with two people determined to fight overwhelming odds, even death, to be together. Clanless provides readers a view of the world outside Ram's Gate, exploring both the Raven and Kodiak Clans in more depth.

I LOVE THIS COVER. I love the way Gryphon is depicted and the symbolism of of the white background in contrast to the black of the Nameless cover. I personally think the series only gets better with every book, and I hope readers agree.On to the reveal! 


Another release in the Power of the Matchmaker series... Chasing Fireflies by Taylor Dean (Book Blitz Excerpt & Giveaway)

Chasing FirefliesChasing Fireflies
(Power of the Matchmaker)
by Taylor Dean
Adult Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 311 Pages
July 1st 2016


My sisters think I’m crazy.

But, I’ve never forgotten the mysterious woman from my childhood who told me Paul is the name of my one true love.

She told me to search far and wide for him.

I haven’t stopped looking ever since.

When I stumble across an article about a successful American entrepreneur named Paul who lives and works in China, I’m intrigued. When the opportunity to teach English in China presents itself on the same day, I know it’s not a coincidence.

It’s destiny.

My sisters say I’m chasing a dream.

Just like the fireflies we tried to catch on the warm summer evenings of our youth, the dream seems beyond my grasp. Will my quest for the elusive Paul always be just short of fulfillment?

My sisters tell me it’s a fool’s errand.

Until I remind them of the day we saw the Red Bird.

The memory silences them.

The Red Bird Incident remains inarguable—and proves my search for Paul is not a silly fantasy.

I will find Paul . . . I will.

Praise for the Book

It was like Taylor Dean left a trail of chocolate chips leading to a plate of delicious cookies at the end. Yummy! I had to eat every single one and now I’m full and feasting on the satisfaction of a well written story.
-Author Charissa Stastny

Taylor Dean is such a creative and skilled author that she has the ability to make the unusual and the unthinkable seem real.
-Lisa, Goodreads Reviewer

As always I loose myself in Taylor’s books, experiencing rather than reading the story, from that first glance and butterflies in my belly, to the inevitable heartache, to the amazingly captivating events that lead us to the blissful happily ever after.

Welcome to the Return to Marker Ranch tour! 

I am so excited to launch this book into the world. It is a very emotional story straight from the heart, with some big issues and two characters with a lot of healing to do. But even though my hero and heroine go through some hard times, I feel like ultimately it’s a very uplifting book about two very strong people who learn to lean on each other, who open themselves up to love and life, and who find acceptance and happiness along the way.

Return to Marker Ranch is the second book in my Sierra Legacy series, but each book is written so that it can stand completely on it’s own. The series started with Wild Horses, which came out in March, and will continue with Home Free, which comes out in November. And there will be a fourth book in the series as well, which will most likely be released in March 2017. That book is so far down the road that it doesn’t actually have a title yet!

The Sierra Legacy books are set in my fictional town of Benson, California, nestled against the east side of the Sierras, where the mountains rise straight out of the high desert. It’s a dramatic landscape for a dramatic series. My hope is that the stories will transport readers into this majestic landscape, and into the lives of characters facing real–life struggles and finding larger-than-life romance. 

Thank you for joining the tour! I hope you’ll come along for all kinds of blog posts, excerpts, interviews, reviews and the giveaway. I look forward to chatting along the way!

June 28th: Lady Amber's Reviews - Sheltered in His Arms

What I hope will really make you feel at home is the fact that all is not perfect in Shelter Valley. Just like anywhere in the world. We all have faults. And sometimes finding them in others is comforting, makes them more like us, allowing us to relate to them more easily. Sam Montford made a substantial mistake. But he’s ready to atone for that mistake and to share with Shelter Valley the good things he’s created in his life. He asks only to be forgiven.

June 29th: Books & Spoons - Strangers in Paradise

Strangers in Paradise takes place in the area that’s been my home my entire life—with all the good and the bad that come with living in such a paradise! I do love Miami, for all of her beauty, though I admit, of course, we have our problems. We’ve grown too big for our britches in my lifetime; we have crime, and we have craziness. But, still, there’s nothing like a sunset in the western sky, a sunrise, the Deco insanity of Miami Beach, and the beauty to be found in the coral shelves off our coastline. I am a diver—maybe that’s half the reason I love my area so much!

She just wanted to shake up her love life. Jacklyn (Jack) Wyatt is the typical twenty-five-year-old living the typical Provo single life with the typical bad luck—at least until the FBI recruits her for a completely different type of dating.

A young woman has gone missing, and all signs point to her online dating profile as the kidnapper’s operating ground. But when suspects who crossed paths with the missing girl begin contacting Jack, the FBI sees its opportunity for an inside man—er, woman.

Now Jack will have to play the field, dating each of the men in an attempt to weed out the kidnapper. But with such an unusual array of characters vying for her attention, pinpointing the culprit may prove even harder than finding Mr. Right. And as more young women disappear, will Jack stay professional and objective, even with the handsome Special Agent Damon Wade just a whisper in her hidden microphone away?
