Psychological Thriller/Contemporary Dark Romance

DESCRIPTION:
There were still lessons to learn and consequences for the truth!
When Claire Nichols met Anthony Rawlings, she didn’t know they had a past, or that he had plans for her future. Over time, the role of teacher changed—games became reality—and domination turned to desire. Despite an insurmountable history, Claire and Tony found their way back to one another.
Just when they seemed to have it all—love, respect, and the promise of a family—the game master exposed the truth. Claire’s world once again spun out of control. Unwilling to allow her child to suffer the consequences of an old vendetta, Claire fled…
At one time, Claire was held captive in an opulent mansion—then her incarceration was a cell inside a state penitentiary. Was her new prison—a tropical island—truly less lonely? Perhaps that was the game master’s plan, all along?
Who will save Claire from her oldest nightmare and her newest reality? Will it be Tony? Can he forgive her for leaving him—again? Harry? Will he utilize previously unknown connections to save the woman who infiltrates his thoughts? Maybe Phil? Will his devotion in keeping Claire and her child safe be rewarded?
As the cards are played—sins of the past, innocent victims, and truths are revealed. With compartmentalization no longer an option, is the reality too much? Could there be an even worse isolation?
With the game master dealing from a stacked deck, can this new high-stakes game possibly be won?
When it’s all over and their cards are on the table—SOME will discover their bets were too high—they have nothing left to lose—ALL will learn the crucial lesson—the most important rule—there are CONSEQUENCES for the TRUTH!

Eliza Dunmar is about to turn thirty-one and fears her best days are behind her. As a Latter-day Saint, she’ll soon be too old to attend church in a singles ward, her career as a painter is no longer considered cool, and she feels too old to use the excuse that she’s “just starting out” to explain why she still can’t pay the bills. The only man interested in her is a scruffy, video game addicted nerd who is the first to admit that they are all wrong for each other.

When her beloved Aunt Nora calls from England and begs her to visit, Eliza leaps at the chance. Even better? Nora had the perfect romance with her late husband and is eager to share the tale. As Eliza sets out to immortalize this courtship in a series of paintings, she learns a lesson that will change her outlook on life and love forevermore.

When it comes to tattooed bad boys, Chase Gartner is the real deal. Partying, engaging in meaningless sex, getting into fights—Chase indulges in it all during his late teen years, thus firmly solidifying his status as a heartbreakingly gorgeous but way-too-dangerous-to-trust guy in his hometown of Harmony Creek, Ohio. Then, following one fateful night of reckless decisions, Chase’s actions finally catch up to him and land him in prison.

Now, four years have passed and Chase finds himself a free man. He returns to Harmony Creek, ready to pick up the pieces and start rebuilding his shattered life.

Things are off to a promising start when he meets Kay Stanton, a young woman with a tragic past of her own. Despite a powerful attraction, Chase and Kay are naturally hesitant to become involved. That’s why friendship feels like the safest option. But when passions ignite and love blossoms, a relationship that is destined and meant to be can only be resisted for so long. When Chase and Kay finally succumb to their feelings they realize being together feels more right and true than anything they have ever experienced.

But their love is soon tested. Chase’s wild past still haunts and tempts him, and Kay is keeping a secret that could tear them apart.

I Stand Before You is a journey of hope and forgiveness, coming to terms with the past and moving forward. But mostly it’s a story of two damaged people who take a chance, open their hearts, and find true love.

Expected release date: September 23ish, 2013

Age Group: Mature New Adult

Cover designed by: Amber McNemar

Riviera Benson has a talent…one she discovered by accident. She’s a painter, but canvas isn’t her medium.

Riviera has secrets from her past she intends to keep tightly locked away…terrifying secrets that keep her awake at night…that prevent her from getting close to anyone…anyone that is, until she meets Shan.

His business has boomed, ever since the forest fire swept through the canyon and destroyed hundreds of million dollar homes. He demands excellence in everything…from his employees to his women. He slows down for nothing, keeping a schedule that no sane person would want. But Riviera interrupts everything, twisting his guts inside out, and wedging her way into his heart, destroying a promise he made to himself.

Will they let their pasts control their future, or will they decide to let go and allow their hearts to discover each other’s?

About the Author

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).

So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and reEmergent), Dark Waltz and the upcoming release Tragically Flawed.

Other than being in love with being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.

Blog Tour Review: Canary by Rachele Alpine

Debut novel by Rachele Pine

Publisher: Medallion Press

Young Adult Contemporary

Release: August 1, 2013

Canary is told in a mix of prose and verse.

Staying quiet will destroy her, but speaking up will destroy everyone.

Kate Franklin’s life changes for the better when her dad lands a job at Beacon Prep, an elite private school with one of the best basketball teams in the state. She begins to date a player on the team and quickly gets caught up in a world of idolatry and entitlement, learning that there are perks to being an athlete.

But those perks also come with a price. Another player takes his power too far and Kate is assaulted at a party. Although she knows she should speak out, her dad’s vehemently against it and so, like a canary sent into a mine to test toxicity levels and protect miners, Kate alone breathes the poisonous secrets to protect her dad and the team. The world that Kate was once welcomed into is now her worst enemy, and she must decide whether to stay silent or expose the corruption, destroying her father’s career and bringing down a town’s heroes.


About the Author

Rachele Alpine is a lover of sushi, fake mustaches, and Michael Jackson. One of her first jobs was at a library, but it didn’t last long, because all she did was hide in the third-floor stacks and read. Now she’s a little more careful about when and where she indulges her reading habit. By day she’s a high school English teacher, and by night she writes with the companionship of the world’s cutest dog, Radley, a big cup of coffee, and a full bag of gummy peaches. Rachele lives with her husband in Cleveland, Ohio, but dreams of moving back to Boston, the city she fell in love with while attending graduate school there.

~~~~REVIEW~~~~

Canary is an all too real book about the sense of entitlement and elite status that is often afforded to sports and the players involved.  It’s a book about courage and speaking up even when you know the consequences will be huge.  But the consequences will also help to prevent some things from happening again in the future (hopefully).

The main character, Kate, is the new student at Beacon High and the head coach’s daughter.  She is welcomed to the new school with open arms from players and classmates simply because of who she is and what they think they can get as a result of being her friend or boyfriend.  Kate loses part of herself to fit in with the “in” crowd.  She even goes so far to alienate her brother.  Her dad is so wrapped up in the team that he completely disappears from his kid’s lives.  It is heart breaking to see their family unit fall apart because of basketball and the need to fit in with the image at Beacon.

This book shows so many aspects of navigating the cruel world as a young adult.  From bullying, to peer pressure, to unloving home lives, to fitting in, to compromising basic values. Most importantly, it covers a serious topic with date rape drugs and assault.  I hope this book gives young women the courage to speak up if this should ever happen to them.

 I received an ARC for an honest review.

Update from Deep South

Dear Readers,

I am happy to see continual likes on the FB page and the followers here.  THANK YOU!!!  I appreciate you all!  A hundred thanks to you all.

I do want to give a quick update on why Deep South reviews have fallen off on posts and reviews the past two months.  It’s all because of an opportunity to follow a passion of mine relating to books.  I was accepted to grad school for Library & Information Science!!!  My leisure reading ended abruptly at the beginning of June with my first semester, which I have successfully finished.  It was crazy but I survived and am gearing up for Fall now.  Grad school has been a big change but one that I am super excited about! I thought I was an avid reader but school takes that up a few notches to insane amounts of reading!  Insane amounts!  I’m still excited though and that’s half the battle.

So, with this news, I ask that you please keep following, please, please!  I will be posting cover reveals and promotional events still.  I also hope to get a book review or two out once a semester.  Well, one is more likely than two to be honest.

As fellow book lovers, I hope you understand and appreciate that I am on a new journey to truly follow my love of books into the future!  You guys may see an occasional post or two about librarians on here as well.  Thanks again for following my blog!

XO,

Amber
