The Hidden Monastery by E. J. Dawson

Synopsis shown as on Amazon

Captain Katarina Salisbury of the airship the Iron Lady and propaganda tool for the Illisian government, has been given a very simple assignment; to go and rescue villagers threatened with avalanches in the far southern Drezusk Mountains.

With unwelcome nobles on her vessel, diminishing part of her fame and good press from the venture, she is determined to do her duty and be done with them as quickly as possible.
They destroy an avalanche within reach of the village on their first day in the valley.

Except the fall of the avalanche reveals something beneath the tumbling snow and rock; a hidden monastery of a dead religion, never seen before this far south on the Illisian continent.
It’s stone doors are opened to reveal a secret, and something malicious moves in the shadows, to keep that secret.

Captain Katarina Salisbury is drawn to the monastery, she struggles against forces that would stop her. As the weather worsens she is forced to make choices for herself and the future of the Iron Lady.

 

A little about the author

I grew up in a household that loved and revered books and the world of fantasy.

I can’t count how many times my mother read Nargan and the Stars or the Hobbit to us, and we loved every minute.

Growing up in such a place all I wanted to do was tell stories, from a little girl to a teenager putting emotions to paper it was all naively innocent and fostered a love for the written word, but a knowledge that whatever I wrote wasn’t right.

Several lost novels and many years later I came across an idea that grew into a series I couldn’t fathom had so much depth; The Last Prophecy.

In worlds were a single person has a chance to change the world for the better wouldn’t you? These stories are what I decided to write and publish, and they are filled with all the hopes, dreams, and deceptions of the real world. . To learn more about E. J. read her complete bio HERE.

Where it all Began by Lorana Hoopes

Where It All Began tells the story of Sandra Baker, a woman who finds herself pregnant with a partner who doesn't want the baby. With not enough money and no family to help, she allows him to push her into abortion. Unable to fully recover from the experience, she descends into a depression and turns to alcohol to cope, further distancing her relationship. She struggles to find meaning in her life until she meets Henry Dobbs, a Christian who radiates a comfort Sandra has been seeking. As their relationship grows, Sandra wonders if the God Henry speaks so highly of would accept her? Will she tell Henry her darkest secret? And will she ever be able to forgive herself and find healing?

Though this is technically the second book in my Heartbeats series, it can be read before the Power of Prayer as it tells the backstory of one of the characters. However, it should be read before When Hearts Collide.

She is an active member of her church choir and enjoys acting and kickboxing in her spare time.

Cowboy Sanctuary by Michelle Hughes

Cowboy Sanctuary is a new novel that has been awarded a Kindle Scout publishing contract. I want to take the opportunity to congratulate Michelle Hughes on her achievement. This is a happy day for authors as we support each other in the writing community. I happen to know Michelle and we had a little chat. I feel privileged to present her and her newest novel, which will be released on January 17, 2017. As I understand it, this has now turned in to a series. So look out for books 2 and 3 in the coming weeks.

 

A little about Michelle Huges

I grew up thinking I'd become the next great country singer of our time.  I began singing at three years old, after being bribed by our insurance man to belt out a song, and that was it.  My life was set in stone.  I pursued that dream for many years, and also wrote songs. I had the pleasure of singing on the Midnight Jamboree in Nashville, and touring the US performing at state fairs, nightclubs, and a myriad of other events.  My first son went on the road with me, my mom and manager and it was an exciting, but sometimes crazy life.  When I got pregnant with my twins, I knew my days of touring were coming to an end.
 
Writing books didn't even occur to me until I was laid off many years later from a job in respiratory. For six months I stayed home raising my,  by that time,  fifth child (yes I wanted a huge family and had one), I was going stir crazy.  I loved hanging out with my little man, but for someone who worked hard their entire life, there were too many hours in the day.  One day I sat down at my computer and started writing a book just to curb my boredom.  Eight years later I have over twenty books in my library and still can't believe how writing became a career! 
 
I'd always been an avid reader.  The kind of kid that would look up words in the dictionary for fun, yes a true nerd.  My granny Louise was responsible for that.  She grew up on a cotton farm and didn't get a chance to finish her education, so I helped her with what I was learning in school. Granny never put down a book, except to cook, after that and she got me hooked on  Harlequin romance novels that came four at a time each month.  
 
When I started writing that's what I wanted to do, write those happily ever after love stories with the virgin and strong alpha male character.  I loved reading historical romances, but quickly realized that type of writing wasn't for me, so I modified my books to be modern day bodice rippers (which I know is an oxymoron).  That's me, in a nutshell!

 

Welcome to Cowboy Sanctuary!

Dana Waterfield’s well-organized life gets tipped upside down when the brutal murder of her twin sister Danielle threatens to unravel everything she’s worked so hard to achieve. Having found herself the sole guardian of her sister’s newborn lovechild, Jeremy, and at the receiving end of her ex-brother-in-law’s unchecked rage, Dana flees to the safety of Dixon Ranch and the strong, muscled arms of Brock Dixon. 

In order to protect the baby from the wrath of Danielle’s husband and murderer, Dana must blend into the daily routine of ranch life, and rethink who she really is. When the wrath of a madman threatens the life of her nephew and everything she holds dear, will Dana put her trust in Brock or let the winds of change tear her family apart?

Falling for her sister’s lover was never part of the plan, but there’s something about a cowboy that no woman can resist. After all, the safest place to be is in a cowboy’s arms…
