With a cowardly captain, incompetent crew, and a cruel, too-handsome first officer intent on making her life a living hell, Nile must hide her identity while trying to turn the sorry frigate battleworthy. Worse, a terrifying and forbidden magic now tingles in Nile’s blood. If anyone catches wind of who Nile is or what she can do, her life is over.
 But when disaster threatens the ship, Nile may have no choice but to unleash the truth that will curse her
future.
AIR AND ASH is the thrilling first installment of the TIDES series. Recommended for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Tamora Pierce, and Naomi Novik.

The Sheik’s Ruby by Jennifer Moore~ Blog Tour

Blog Tour Schedule

sheiksThe Sheik’s Ruby
by Whitney Award Winning Author Jennifer Moore

Shelby wants to break away from the mold of her small town and make a name for herself in the big-city journalism world. While skiing, she meets mysterious stranger Hakim who is actually the prince of the Middle Eastern kingdom of Khali-dar. When his enemies learn of Hakim’s connection to an American girl, they target Shelby. Fleeing to the safety of Khali-dar, Shelby falls deeper in love not only with the prince, but with his country. As she struggles to survive terrorist attacks, withstand the Sheik’s prejudice, and find her place in a world she doesn’t understand, she must choose which life she is willing to sacrifice—the comfortable one she has worked so hard to create, or the one with the man she loves.

Amazon * Wild Rose Press * Barnes & Noble

Excerpt

“Does your father know you’re asking me?”
Hakim gazed over her shoulder and took a deep breath. “He knows.”
“But he doesn’t want me to come, right?”
“I will bring a companion of my choice tomorrow.” He locked his gaze onto Shelby’s and leaned toward her. “You are my choice. Will you please come?”
The Sheik apparently doesn’t buy into the whole “guests are gifts from Allah” idea. “Of course, I would love to come.” She smiled, but knew it didn’t appear convincing. She hated feeling like she was the source of their discord.
“You are nervous. Please do not feel uncomfortable.”
“I’m worried I’ll say or do something stupid.” She winced. “I’m not exactly a refined debutante who knows how to act in formal situations. I don’t want to embarrass you, Hakim.”
“I do not want you to be a refined debutante. I have spent enough time with those people to know they are not what I want.”Hakim maneuvered his horse until he faced Shelby and their legs were nearly touching. He leaned closer, his gaze earnest. “What I want is you, Shelby Jo.” He cupped her cheek in his hand.
Shelby felt her heart flutter and her nerve endings tingle as she lost herself in the deep brown pools of his eyes.
His thumb stroked her skin, leaving a trail of heat in its wake. He slid his hand into her hair and drew her closer, his lips covering hers.
When she drew away, Shelby inhaled deeply and grinned. “Hearing you put it that way, how could I possibly refuse?”

 

Praise for Sheik’s Ruby

“What a fun read! THE SHEIK’S RUBY is a fabulous Cinderella story with both ancient and modern tones you don’t want to miss.”
~Josi Kilpack

“THE SHEIK’S RUBY is a perfect blend of romance and adventure, set in locales both familiar and exotic. When I finished, I wanted to start over and enjoy it again.

~Nancy Allen

Pride by Rosie Somers- Book Blast and $50 Giveaway

26 Mar, 2015 by in book blitz, giveaway Leave a comment

Pride2Pride by Rosie Somers

Seventeen-year-old Gabriella Pierce is used to taking care of herself, but she’s about to become responsible for a whole lot more. When she gets a visit from three men claiming to be defenders of fantastical rings imbued with the powers of THE CARDINAL SINS, her life is changed irrevocably.

Gabby is the steward of PRIDE

To make matters worse, she’s falling hard for fellow steward, Grant Barnett, and he hates her guts. Now Gabby has to learn to protect Pride without letting her feelings for Grant get in the way.

Amazon * Barnes & Noble * Smashwords * iTunes

Praise for the Book

Iola’s Christian Reads: “Pride is aimed at the YA market, and is the first in a planned series (presumably one for each of the seven deadly sins). It incorporates elements of other well-known YA series such as Harry Potter and Divergent, (an orphan who is the ‘chosen one’ fighting the forces of evil). It has that fast pace and addictive quality which makes it hard to put down.”

“…it was thrilling enough to grab my attention and I can’t wait to continue Gabby’s story in the next installment. Rosie Somers has made it to my Author’s to watch for list!”

Must Love Otters Book Blitz and Giveaway

19 Dec, 2013 by in book blitz 3 comments

must-love-otters

Fire and Ice is happy to be participating in the Book Blitz for Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon. The Blitz is hosted by YA Reads and we have some fun facts about the author as well as a giveaway.

must-love-otters-coverMust Love Otters

Genre: Women’s Fiction/Humor/Contemporary/Romantic Comedy
Publisher: West 26th Street Press, NYC (a division of Writers House)

Summary

Hollie Porter is the chairwoman of Generation Disillusioned: at twenty-five years old, she’s saddled with a job she hates, a boyfriend who’s all wrong for her, and a vexing inability to say no. She’s already near her breaking point, so when one caller too many kicks the bucket during Hollie’s 911 shift, she cashes in the Sweethearts’ Spa & Stay gift certificate from her dad and heads to Revelation Cove, British Columbia. One caveat: she’s going solo. Any sweethearts will have to be found on site.

Hollie hopes to find her beloved otters in the wilds of the Great White North, but instead she’s providing comic relief for staff and guests alike. Even Concierge Ryan, a former NHL star with bad knees and broken dreams, can’t stop her from stumbling from one (mis)adventure to another. Just when Hollie starts to think that a change of venue doesn’t mean a change in circumstances, the island works its charm and she starts to think she might have found the rejuvenation she so desperately desires. But then an uninvited guest crashes the party, forcing her to step out of the discomfort zone where she dwells and save the day … and maybe even herself in the process.

Fun Facts From the Author

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Definitely chocolate. Unless it’s a milkshake. Then vanilla.

Pizza or Tacos?

Tacos, if I could get them from a authentic, grade-A food truck in Los Angeles. That was my biggest shock of moving to western Canada — virtually NO Mexican food. *sad face*

Cats or Dogs?

Cats x 1000%. Mr. Gordon concurs. We’re those weird, talk-to-the-cat-like-it’s-human people.

Italian or Chinese?

Oooooooh, you’re cruel. Um, probably Chinese?

Favorite TV show?

GAME OF THRONES. Forever.

Favorite movie?

EVER? Probably the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I know, total nerd. But Shakespeare in Love, Gladiator, Kick-Ass, and Welcome to the Punch round out the top five.

Favorite singer/band?

Sia. Or Florence + the Machine. Or Imogen Heap. And Muse. And Mumford & Sons. Or Death Cab for Cutie. Or Regina Spektor. OMG. I don’t even know. Do you want my list of favorite movie score composers? HANS ZIMMER. There. I listed ONE. :) Mr. Gordon would have to say Van Halen. (Don’t giggle at him. He’s sensitive.)

What is the closest item to you that is red?

A Superman keychain. Only it’s not just Superman — it’s a chunky rendition of what he’d look like as a kid. Sort of adorable.

Favorite Christmas ornament?

A ceramic ornament I painted years ago of my Best Cat Ever, Kovu. (RIP, buddy.)

Biggest Pet Peeve?

Disingenuous people. I cannot abide fakery.

Biggest Quirk?

I obsess about things — music, books, movies, movie stars. I get it in my head, and I can’t get rid of it until I’ve exhausted myself.

In All Places by Misty Moncur~ Book Blitz

16 Dec, 2013 by in book blitz, misty moncur Leave a comment

unnamed

Book Summary

After defeating their enemy at Manti, the Ammonite warriors are free to return home. But for Keturah, returning home means putting her weapons down and leaving the warriors she has come love. She misses Reb’s stupid jokes and even the hard, awful work of being a soldier.

But fighting Lamanites on the battlefield was easy compared to returning to the life of a village girl. She wants to honor her family’s wishes and marry Zeke, but honor will come at a steep price.

Zeke might have won Ket’s loyalty with his blood on the battlefield, but he knows he hasn’t won her heart. He’s tired of trying to make her love him, and for Zeke, loyalty just isn’t enough.

Gideon knows Keturah is practically betrothed to someone else. He thought he was prepared to take her home to Melek and leave her there, but that was before he let himself kiss her in front of the entire village.

Whether Keturah is at home or on the battlefield, there are still battles left to fight—the battles in her heart.

Fall in love with Misty Moncur’s stripling warriors, who come alive against her vivid Ancient American backdrop. An intriguing blend of adventure and romance, In All Places is the unforgettable conclusion to her Daughter of Helaman trilogy.

Author Q & A

Who are some of you favorite authors?

I really like LuAnne Rice because of the way she writes families. She can portray how people in families both love and hate each other, resent and care for one another. I think relationships can be so complicated, especially close relationships that last over years. I try to emulate her in my own writing.

What is the best book you’ve read recently?

Divergent Series , hands down.

Next Ten Books on Misty’s TBR pile/E-reader

Let’s call it the eReader list. I LOVE being able to carry all my books with me wherever I go. I get kind of panicky without them, lest I should be sitting at the dentist’s office or the long line at the grocery store with nothing to read. J Here are a few of the books I hope I get to soon.

The Bane by Keary Taylor. I read What I Didn’t Say by Taylor and LOVED it, so I’d like to give something else of hers a try.

Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanan- My fifth grader read this at school and he asked me to buy it so he could finish it before the class, and I thought if it’s that good, maybe I should try it! Plus, it sounds really cute.

You Belong With Me  by Shannon Guyman- I know lots of people who like this book, but I haven’t read it yet.

Just Ella by Annette K Larsen- One of the book reviewers whose opinion I really respect said this one was good, so I thought I’d give it a try.

The Reluctant Bachelorette  by Rachael Anderson- Looks totally cute.

Emma: A Latter-day Tale by Rebecca H. Jamison- Rebecca is a writer friend of mine, and I haven’t yet taken the chance to read one of her books. She is such a nice person, and I’m such a jerk for not getting around to this yet.

Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi- I know nothing about this or Morsi, but it sounded really cute on the Netgalley, so I thought I’d try to get to it.

Losing Mars  by Cidney Swanson- I took a chance on Saving Mars by Swanson and really fell in love with Jessamyn. She grows, she learns, all the things I like in a YA novel. Can’t wait to finish up the series.

The Hero by Robyn Carr- Might be part of my secret Robyn Carr addiction…

Full Steam Ahead by Karen Witemeyer- I’ve read all of Witemeyer’s other books, and can’t wait to read this when it comes out. I like Karen’s work because I know I can count on it to be clean, and also, western romances are probably my favorite genre.

Misty Moncur’s Holiday Traditions

One of my favorite holiday traditions is a Thanksgiving one. Instead of having potatoes and turkey gravy, we have mashed potatoes in a bowl with homemade chicken noodle soup over the top. I remember this from all our Thanksgivings with my mom’s family growing up, and now that I’m grown, I’ve taken on making the soup because it is a tradition that I want to carry on. We also have a quirky little birthday tradition. My family always sings a second verse to the Happy Birthday song. Instead of singing, “Happy Birthday to you,” we sing, “’Tis love brings us here.” Every time I hear it at my birthday or someone else’s in my family, I try to remember that the reason everyone is there singing, eating cake, laughing and supporting each other, is because of love.

I prefer the older, family traditions instead of trying to do every new thing you see on the Pinterest or hear about other families doing. I like writing out Christmas cards like my mom used to do as opposed to, say, moving some creepy elf around my house. Making new tradition can be fun, and even necessary when times change, but I think the old traditions that you pass on hold the most meaning.

About the Authorunnamed (2)

Between working and raising a family, Misty fits in writing like other people fit in breathing. Misty writes in the Romance, Young Adult, and Religious genres. She lives in Utah with her husband, her Wii-addicted son, and her curly-haired daughter. They spend a great deal of time laughing and the rest of it eating pizza.
