COYER (Clean Out Your E-Reader)

Today, my long time friend Deb suggested that I again try to connect with other bloggers by doing a reading challenge.  She told me she had signed up for two.  I asked what two she had signed up for, and truth be told I don’t remember the other one she told me.

I did however check out COYER immediately.  I was a 100% failure at doing the Dewey Read-a-thon that I’m not confident I can succeed with COYER, but the concept sounds like I can be more of a participant and hopefully be somewhat successful.

I hope that others who see this will decide to check it out and perhaps think this is a great way to clean out their own e-reader or IPod as this year they’re allowing audio books as well.   I’m sharing the link and hopefully you’ll participate!

Excerpt

We got to the park and Charlie took off to warm up with his team. Jared grabbed our chairs from the back, while I collected our water bottles and Tank’s leash. We found a spot about mid-field and within minutes the boys were chasing the black and white ball around.

Charlie was amazing. He was faster than the other boys, and his coordination, flicking the ball between the other players, was shocking. I couldn’t take my eyes off of him.

“Go Charlie!” I shouted.

He grinned at me and took off down the field.

The mom next to us leaded over. “Are you Charlie’s mother?”

“Yes.” I nodded, glancing her way before focusing on the game again.

“He’s a great player.” She held out her hand. “I’m Heather, Brian’s mom.”

I stared at her hand and finally reached out to take it. “Nice to meet you. I’m Ms… Taryn. I’m Taryn.”

She released my hand with no idea how lucky she’d been. Completely unharmed. Maybe I really was getting the power under control.

“I’ve never seen you at the games before.”

I tensed. “I usually work on Saturdays.”

“Or practices.”

“I work late.”

Jared leaned forward. “Charlie’s lucky his mom sacrifices so much so he can play sports.”

Heather gave Jared a long look and smiled. “And you are?”

“I’m Jared.” He took my hand lacing our fingers together. “Taryn’s boyfriend.”

I blinked and did my best to hide my shock behind a cool smile. “Charlie’s not the only one who’s lucky.”

Heather nodded. “I can see that.”

Brian’s Mom focused on the game again. I turned to face Jared and mouthed the word, “Boyfriend?”

He chuckled and leaned in. “Sounded better than telling her I’m your carpenter.” I nodded, wishing I hadn’t wanted it to be true. He squeezed my hand and came close to whisper, “There’s no one else in my life, in case you’re wondering.”

Without thinking, I raised our joined hands and kissed the back of his. He watched my every move, desire shining in his eyes. I swallowed hard and broke eye contact. He could make me hot with just a look. How could this ever work?

I concentrated on Charlie’s game, counting backwards and gradually the fire cooled. Jared tightened his hold on my hand, drawing my attention again. Was I hurting him? His smile melted away my worries. My heart pounded as I lost myself in his bright hazel eyes.

“You stopped it. Your hand heated up, but you pulled it back.”

I nodded. He made me feel like a freaking superhero.

BRETON WOLFE by VICTORIA VANE (A De Wolfe Pack Kindle worlds novella)

Brenton

Synopsis 

BRETON WOLFE by VICTORIA VANE (A De Wolfe Pack Kindle worlds novella)

She swore to defy him to her dying breath… But passion blurs the line between love and hate…

The bluest blood and the hardest heart… at least when it comes to marriage… The daughter of a duke and granddaughter of a king, Adele of Vannes was bartered at birth in a marriage treaty for the sole purpose of producing a royal heir. When her philandering husband is slain by Norse marauders, she is coerced to wed again in order to protect her home and her people. Adele knows that her beloved Brittany needs a strong hand to survive, but how can she ever reconcile her bitterness and hatred with the desire she feels for her mortal enemy?

She’s the jewel he seeks for his Breton crown…A Barbarian bent on building a dynasty, Valdrik Vargr, ‘the Norse Wolf,’ is renowned for both his bravery in battle and shrewdness in statecraft. Setting his sights on claiming the kingdom of Brittany, he knows that siring sons from royal blood would solidify his hold, but the woman he would claim as his queen refuses to have him. Will he fuel her hatred by taking her to his bed, or will the man who strikes terror in the hearts of men be reduced to wooing his bride?

Excerpt

Adèle spent the night on her knees in prayer, gaze cast heavenward in supplication. She hadn’t dared to bow her head and shut her eyes for fear that sleep would overtake her. She couldn’t afford to be caught aware when the marauders came. And they would come. That was a certainty. Rudalt had never returned from his ‘Norse” hunt. None of them had returned. They were dead. She felt it down to her bones.

She’d dispatched riders to Cournailles but he was days away. He would never arrive in time. Her home would be burned to ashes before help ever came. Perhaps she could buy them off? Did she have enough silver and jewels to pay tribute? Or would the Norsemen simply extract their payment in woman’s flesh and men’s blood?

Her throat thickened at the sudden remembrance of her wedding night. She had borne Rudalt’s ravaging for years; surely she could survive it again. And survival was all she dared hope for. The Norse would come with their battle axes and siege machines. The Bretons might keep them at bay for a few hours or maybe a day, but penetration of their walls was inevitable. She had no true defenses outside of a few dozen archers. In his arrogance, Rudalt had taken the best warriors, leaving her defenseless.

From her bedchamber window, Adèle cast her gaze eastward where the sun was rising, painting the landscape of rolling hills in soft shades of pink and gold. She stared off into the distance, chewing her lip and willing her nerves to settle. Last night she’d worn holes in her slippers and bitten her fingernails to the quick. She now accepted that her fate was out of her hands. She had no choice but to entrust herself to the merciful will of God. If death awaited her, she prayed it would be swift.

Moving shadows appeared on the horizon. A moment later they took shape as a solid line of men. Hundreds of mounted men. But rather than shrinking in terror, a strange peace settled over her. She was the daughter of Judicael, a great warrior and Duke of Brittany. Her great-grandfather was Erispoe, the first proclaimed King of the Bretons. She would do as the father and grandfather had done before her—she would fight them to her dying breath.
