Ms. Garcia is so happy to have these covers redone and up for purchase again!! I hope you like them! Please go to my page to add to your wish list and purchase. Thank you!
Anela Alborn’s life is a lie. After growing up without the love of a father, her mother reveals his identity. Tragedy strikes and she sets off on an adventure that leads to more than she could ever imagine. Bumping into Christian Sivers distracts her from the real man of her dreams, her father. Will he live up to her dreams? And does she follow in her mother’s footsteps?
After getting swept up in nostalgia and losing herself in a quickly progressing romance, her fantasy falls apart. She is left to raise her precious little girl, Lucia, on her own. The demands of Mia’s work schedule and Lucia’s needs increase, and their lives become increasingly hectic. It is soon clear to Mia that she needs help. Luckily, her life-saving cousin saves the day and brings the mother and daughter a male nanny – their new “manny.” After losing his high-pressure job on Wall Street, Dominic Roberts wants to follow his dreams to have a family. He’s already one fiancée down, and there are no likely prospects for another. In order to find the family he so desperately wants, he finds himself getting into the manny business. Since he is fully qualified to provide childcare and is eager to leave New York City behind, his sister-in-law is able to land him a job in California working for his first client – the beautiful and intriguing Mia Balducci. Will Lucia like the new man in her mother's life? Will Mia? And will this new trio discover the happily ever after they all so desperately seek?
Jennifer Garcia’s lifelong love for reading and writing was put aside for many years while she made her way in the world and nurtured her young family. Originally from Boston, she currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband, two sons, and two dogs. Jennifer believes in writing love stories that connect families and touch hearts.
It’s release day for Songbird by Sydney Logan! We love this contemporary romance, and we're so thrilled to share it with you! Check out the release day festivities!
One bridesmaid. One groomsman. One classic wedding hookup. But for Callie and Devin, their weekend of passion is anything but typical. Callie Franklin doesn’t do one night stands. Ever. She’s far too responsible and focused on her career to ever let herself give in to temptation. But, on the eve of her best friend’s wedding, she meets that temptation . . . And his name is Devin McAllister. Devin, on the other hand, has no problem with meaningless hookups. The very last thing he needs—or wants—is a relationship. Relationships come with strings. Relationships come with heartbreak. A late-night encounter in the hotel’s piano bar finds the two unable to resist each other. With her angelic voice and bright blue eyes, Devin’s sure he’s never met anyone as beautiful as his Songbird. Six weeks later, when two pink lines confirm Callie’s worst fears, she and Devin have to face the consequences of their wild weekend. And they have to deal with each other—whether they like it or not. With a love story that’s far from traditional, Callie and Devin begin to wonder if their one-night stand could turn into something neither of them anticipated. A happily ever after.
Exclusive Excerpt: Traffic’s insane, but I finally make it to Callie’s apartment just after two. I anxiously knock on the door, ridiculously eager to get my hands on her. Maybe she’ll be wearing some flimsy lingerie. Maybe she’ll be naked. My mind’s busy conjuring all the possibilities when she opens the door . . . wearing a sweatshirt and jeans. “Hey,” she says softly, stepping aside to let me in. “Hey. You okay?” She looks pale as a ghost. Is she sick? She looks sick. Maybe I should call an ambulance. Or my dad. “I’m okay.” Callie leads me over to the sofa. “Look, Devin, I know you probably have some plans for us for tonight, but that won’t be happening.” “Oh.” Disappointment floods me, but if the nauseated look on her face is any indication, it’s probably best. Besides, there’s the next night. And the next. “But we need to talk, so I’m glad you’re here. I have something I need to tell you.” She abruptly jumps to her feet and walks toward her kitchen. “Would you like something to drink?” I can’t tell if she’s being a good hostess or simply stalling, but I ask for a beer. It looks like I’m gonna need it. I hadn’t pegged her for the kind of woman who needs to talk about her feelings. When she returns to the living room, Callie hands me a bottle and sits down next to me. I notice she only brought one. “You’re not drinking?” She curls her feet beneath her. “Unfortunately, no. I won’t be drinking for a long time.” I’ve had it with the riddles. “All right, what’s going on? My brother and his girlfriend threatened to murder me if I make you cry. Something’s obviously up with you because you just want to talk.” Her forehead creases. “Don’t you ever just talk to a woman?” “Not if I can help it.” “Why not? The girls you usually date don’t have enough sense to carry on an intelligent conversation?” “I don’t date, Callie.” “I see. You just sleep with them.” “Sometimes. Is there something wrong with that?” “And are you careful?” “Careful?” “Safe,” she says softly. “We didn’t use protection. I just wondered if that’s typical for you.” Oh. It’d be easy to blame the alcohol, but honestly, using protection was the very last thing on my mind that night. “No, that’s not typical. I’m sorry about that.” “So am I.” Callie seems far more relaxed after my apology. Maybe this night won’t be an epic failure after all. I slide closer to her, but she raises her hand in warning. “We’re not finished.” I groan and lean back against the couch. “Devin, I need you to listen. Something happened that weekend. I’m almost positive you won’t want to sleep with me after you hear what I’m about to say.” “I seriously doubt that.” “I don’t.” Callie sits up a little straighter and squares her shoulders. “I want you to know I expect nothing from you. Our weekend together was a mistake, and I’ll deal with the consequences of it. I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do at this point, but I thought you should at least know what’s going on.” “What’s going on?” Her eyes flood with tears. “Devin, I’m pregnant.” Pregnant. Pregnant? I stare at her. She stares at me. I watch her closely, hoping that at any moment she’s going to burst out laughing. But she’s not laughing. She’s crying. I hear Lorie’s voice in my suddenly throbbing head. Don’t make her cry. “Why . . . why are you telling me?” She wipes her eyes. “What do you mean?” “You’re assuming it’s mine?” “Of course it’s yours!” I snort. “Really? How can you be so sure? Maybe it was that bartender in the hotel’s piano bar. Or maybe it was the guy who sat with you at the reception. Or maybe—just maybe—it was the photographer you were with tonight. You two seem pretty close.” Even as the bitter words drip off my tongue, I know better. Her face is just too furious . . . her eyes too heartbroken. Suddenly, Callie stops crying. Her eyes flash with fury just seconds before she slaps me across the face. Despite the ringing in my ears, I can hear my brother’s warning. Don’t be an asshole tonight. Too late.

Tales of the Fifth Guardian; Book One: The Beginning
Tales of the Fifth Guardian is an adult Romantic Fantasy Adventure series with paranormal aspects and is based on the question: What if the descendants of the survivors of the island known as Atlantis lived among us in modern times with all the power and abilities of their ancestors?
The series is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature sexual situations, violence, and dark/trigger scenes. Book One is priced at 99 cents as an introduction to the series since they need to be read in order and every three full volumes I'm creating "compilation volumes" that are priced at buy two get one free in ebook and print.
In Tales of the Fifth Guardian; Book One: The Beginning we meet the main character, Kerrisha Drew-Otlander and learn about some of her past. We are also introduced to the male main character, Kerreth and watch as Kerrisha shares the history of their people from him. Secrets are discovered and some are answered in Book One but nothing is as it seems and even the secrets have secrets. What if you were the one your people had been waiting for but no one believed you?
My husband and I moved back to Florida in 1995 when he was medically retired from the U.S. Navy. I returned to school in 2003 and completed my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 2007. I began writing Tales of the Fifth Guardian in 2009 and self-publishing in 2012. I found the Indie community on Facebook about a year later. I left education in the fall of 2013 to pursue my Master's in Accounting while devoting more time to writing. There are currently eight full length books (averaging 140,000+ words and one short story approx. 43,000 words). There are 12 full length books planned with another 2-3 short stories. I've also developed a language for the series and have created a dictionary.
STALK C.M. JOHNSON:
Kerrisha to the Otland Tower Council of Elders
“Now, you ask who I am; I have told you I am the fifth Knowledge Guardian of the People of Otland Island. It is my duty and my destiny to reunite the People and safeguard the humans. What am I? I am something that has never been seen before; I am the culmination of centuries. I am the last pureblood of my line. I am someone, I am something that will live for centuries and die a little every day. I will watch my children die, I will watch my grandchildren die, and still I will live on with my Blood-bonded mate, my perfect match. We will live together, work together, and fight together to fulfill our destinies every day. I am the last hope for this planet, for this world; if I fail in my destiny, if I fail to safeguard the humans, then the world will be ruled by the Lost Clans. It will not be ruled by those of us who believe in benevolence; it will be ruled by the Thorans, the Tinotchans, and the Devons. It will become a world of war, hunger, and deprivation. If I fail then we will all lose because I am the last hope.”
Tales of the Fifth Guardian is my chance to "geek out" at times. I've created a language, Otlantesha, for the series and include an ever-expanding dictionary & pronunciation key at the rear of each volume. However, I have more words than have been included in the story and have had the full dictionary to date printed in booklets. There is also an "ancient" version of the language - think runic in style and that is included in the dictionary as well. The fun part of this is that most of my characters cuss in Otlantesha so while I don't generally include anything worse than "sh**" or "da**" and the occasional "Bi***" my characters use stronger language in Otlantesha. Their biggest insult is to call someone, "Yo Punday Cracho (yo (/o/ as in low) poon-die cra-kho)" or "You stupid whale's a**" because they did not have horses on thier ancient island home.
What is your favorite color socks to wear?
Black if I have to, but usually none - I live in Florida.
Do you wear boxers or briefs?
Women's briefs if the situation calls for full coverage or t-backs - I just celebrated my 25th anniversary, we need to keep things interesting somehow.
If you were a cookie, which kind would you be?
What was the best thing before sliced bread?
Since sliced bread was invented in 1928 one could argue that the automobile was however, if you look at the convenience aspect of sliced bread then I'd have to say moveable type since it placed books into more hands.
Tell me how many hats you have in your house?
Too many to count - my husband collects ball caps and has hundreds.
What is your favorite daily wear attire?
Skorts and t-shirts.
Which book is your most favorite ever?
The one book I literally read to death and had to buy a new one because it fell apart is "Flowers in the Attic".
Do you think people perceive you in the same way as you do? What do they see?
No, most people say I'm sweet and I do like to help but I think I'm pretty twisted at times, too.

Miranda P. Charles
Miranda P. Charles is the author of more than a dozen steamy and stirring contemporary romance novels.
She prefers to spend her time in front of her laptop, putting into words the love stories that play in her head. Don't get her started with reading a great book, though, because she has the tendency to not put it down until she gets to the last page.
She does have a life outside of books. Mostly, that consists of bonding with family and friends or going on romantic trips with her awesome husband (who, thankfully, puts up with her hermit-like daily routine). Oh, yeah, there's also the housework. But she really wishes someone else could do that for her so she could get back to her books!
She lives in one of the suburbs in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia.
Anne has written her entire life and has the boxes of angst-filled journals and poetry to prove it. She's been writing for public consumption for the last four years. Currently she is writing two romance series. In Stories of Serendipity, she explores real people living real lives in small town Texas in a contemporary romance setting. In The Four Winds, she chronicles God's four closest archangels, Uriel, Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael, falling in love and becoming human. She lives in rural East Texas with her husband and children in her own private oasis, where she prides herself in her complete lack of social skills, choosing instead to live with the people inside her head.
Novelist Grae Lily is a natural born storyteller. When other children played outside, she sat in the shade, devouring book after book. Grae's reading preferences are as eclectic as her writing preferences. For her, writing is an art that demands experimentation in order to achieve growth.
Currently, Grae is writing Romantic Suspense serials and novels, Gothic Romance novels, and Paranormal Romance novels and has plans to move into other Romance sub-genres in the near future.
When not writing, Grae can be found snuggling with the four most important people in her life, her children or with her nose in a book.
Katie de Long
Katie de Long lives in the Pacific northwest, realizing her dream of being a crazy cat-lady. As a kid, Katie flagged the fade-to-blacks in every adult book she encountered, and when she began writing, she vowed to use cutaways sparingly. After all, that's when the good stuff happens. And on a kindle, no one asks why there's so many bookmarks in her library.
R. C. Butler is a software developer, graphic artist, freelance writer, and poet. Born in Edmonton Alberta, the need to create has been a running theme throughout his life. As a teen, Butler found his outlet in poetry, short stories and architecture, which eventually led to an educational background in software development and graphic arts. The mix of right brain creativity and left brain logic are the drawing factor in his love of the software industry.
As an author, he has completed numerous freelance short stories and poems as well as developed and hosted an online writing community. He is currently working on a series of Erotic Mysteries, the first of which was published in the summer of 2015.
I've been making up stories for as long as I can remember. When other kids wanted to be doctors, teachers or firemen, I wanted to be a writer. As soon as I could read, I began devouring books. I'd read anything I could get my hands on, but Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and Nancy Drew mysteries were early favorites. In school, term papers were my favorite homework. While others bemoaned the amount of work involved, I jumped in, burying myself in research and writing the document with care. Still fiction was my first love. After college and a degree in English, I fell into the world of advertising. After many years in corporate America, I went my own way. Working and raising two kids took all my energy and creativity. But when the youngest went off to school, all the stories ideas in my head came to life. Mac Caldwell and Callie Richards landed in my head and refused to leave. So I told their story. What started as one book has become six. Now I greet my characters every morning at six and jump back into their story, enjoying every minute. I'm blessed to be able to work at something I love and share my space with my husband as well as my beloved pug, Homer. More than 26 books later, I'm still up at the crack of dawn, crafting the tales of the people who live in my head.
Jayne Blue lives in the Irish Hills area of Michigan with her husband, children, and a collection of neurotic dogs. She's worked in law and media and now commits herself to writing sizzling love stories and scorching erotic romance books full time. She loves strong heroines who know who they are and the hunky alpha males worthy of them.
