Tea with Bernadette Marie about her latest release, Walker Bride

 

Drinking teaToday I’m having tea with author Bernadette Marie and we’re talking about book 3 in her Walker Bride series, Walker Bride. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of her writing and enjoyed getting to know more about her!

A. Quickies

1. Tea or wine? Tea

2. Read or jog? Read (but I listen to books while I Jog, does that count?)

3. Cats or dogs? Dogs

4. Heels or flats? Flats

5. Boxers or briefs? hmmmm, I’ve been married too long to have an opinion I think J

6. Milk, dark or white chocolate Milk!

7. Sweet or savoury Sweet

8. Sea or mountains Mountains

B. Five likes and five dislikes

Likes:

  1. The sound my family makes in the house (even if it’s loud.)
  2. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate
  3. The feeling of being happy
  4. Being held close by the person you love most
  5. my job

Dislikes

  1. Dishonest people
  2. closed minded people
  3. big crowds (you know…stadium or concert venues)
  4. Homework deadlines with crabby, hungry kiddos
  5. being sick

C. Three things on your bucket list

  1. To live somewhere else for 1-3 months (only)
  2. NYT Bestseller list
  3. Run a ½ marathon

D. What triggered this specific story?

This story is the 3rd in the Walker Family series. We met Pearl and Tyson in book one and they seemed to be uniquely fitting for one another. Each of them are a little lost in their own right and I think their story was a nice transition to the others to come.

Always the bridal consultant, never the bride. That was former bad girl gone business professional, Pearl Walker‘s life until she put her hands on Tyson Morgan while measuring him for a tux.
Tyson was happy being a miserable man, taking care of his family’s land, and not involved with a woman. However, even he can’t resist the pull of attraction to the beautiful, and off limits, Pearl?
The feud between the Walkers and the Morgans had torn apart friends and families for generations. What might happen when Pearl Walker and Tyson Morgan become business partners—and more?

Bernadette Marie has been an avid writer since the early age of 13, when she’d fill notebook after notebook with stories that she’d share with her friends. Her journey into novel writing started the summer before eighth grade when her father gave her an old typewriter. At all times of the day and night you would find her on the back porch penning her first work, which she would continue to write for the next 22 years.

In 2007 – after marriage, filling her chronic entrepreneurial needs, and having five children – Bernadette began to write seriously with the goal of being published. That year she wrote 12
books. In 2009 she was contracted for her first trilogy and the published author was born. In 2011 she (being the entrepreneur that she is) opened her own publishing house, 5 Prince
Publishing, and has released contemporary titles and has begun the process of taking on other authors in other genres.

Bernadette spends most of her free time driving her kids to their many events. She is also an accomplished martial artist, working her way to her second degree black belt in Tang Soo Do.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00010]D. What triggered this specific story?

‘Echoes’ was first brought to life over eighteen years ago following the death of our son. I was doodling in the kitchen trying to get through the day when I began writing a story, that over the following weeks turned into a book. I left it for many years, but it would be found and worked on and rejected and replaced back in the drawer until 2012. I self-published it and it was awarded an Honourable Mention in the New England book festival 2012. The following year it won the e-book category in Paris and awarded another Honourable Mention in the London book awards 2014. Christine Anderson publishing took it on last year.

Blurb:

Bronwen Mortimer, a young, mysterious woman, moves to the quiet village of Derwen, near Shrewsbury, England, in the hope of starting a new life following years of abuse; but the echoes of the land refuse to lie quietly and when she witnesses a terrifying murder, Bronwen must face her past and win, to have any chance of living in the present.

Moving between present day and fifteenth century England, when Henry Tudor claimed the throne at Bosworth. There were many casualties of war, but some will not be forgotten.

Questions:

A. Quickies
1. Tea or wine?

2. Read or jog?

Read, though it might help my clothes fit better if I started jogging. I do however read while I walk on the treadmill. Does that count?

3. Cats or dogs?

I love cats, but unfortunately I’m allergic. I, however, own two adorable dogs.

4. Heels or flats? Heels

5. Boxers or briefs? Boxers

Dislikes: 1. People who don’t signal when they turn. 2. Snow that never goes away. 3. Any type of cooked oatmeal. 4. A dirty house. 5. Traffic.

C. Three things on your bucket list

  • To visit Europe and Asia and South America and Austrailia
  • To be married and have a family
  • To make it on the New York Times Best Seller list. (a girl can always dream)

D. What triggered this specific story?

This story was born back when I was in 8th or 9th grade. I used to ride the school bus for 45 minutes to my stop and I had lots of younger kids who would listen to me tell stories to pass the time. This story came about from a crazy dangly earring (think 80s fashion) I used as the premise of the story. Of course the story has dramatically changed since then, but my main character remained true to the original.

 

When Egyptologist April Tanner is asked to translate the hieroglyphs on an ancient ring, she is unwittingly drawn into a world of danger and intrigue. Her colleague, Dr. Peter Scherril, believes the glyphs will lead to a treasure hidden nearly two thousand years ago by an Egyptian named Remaliha. The problem is the glyphs don’t make sense.

A week after Peter is killed in a suspicious car crash, the ring shows up in April’s mail. She vows to decipher the artifact’s code and figure out why someone wanted Peter dead. Her inquisitions put her in the path of dashing archaeologist Nathan Hayes and his mysterious friend James Reddingham. Nathan invites April to join his expedition near Luxor.

Once she arrives in Egypt, April aggressively pursues her investigation of the ring. But soon she suspects the motives of both Nathan and James and finds herself dodging thieves and assassins at every turn. In the end, uncovering the secrets of the ring could lead to Remaliha’s treasure . . . or April’s own tomb.

Touched to the depths – 4th and final story of the Cavallo brothers

TouchedToTheDepths-ByElsaWinckler-453x680And finally the last story about the Cavallo brothers has been released! Touched to the depths, Darryn and Hannah’s story is now available.

 

 

 

 

 

Blurb:

He was the photographer, she the model and on a sunny beach on Mahé, she stole his heart. But Darryn isn’t ready for the powerful feelings Hannah elicits, so when another photographer implies he’s also slept with Hannah, Darryn uses it as the perfect excuse to walk away.

But when they meet again, he can’t ignore his instincts—Hannah is in danger. Lies and threats make targets of them both, and faced with a situation of pure terror, Darryn is forced to realize he’ll do anything to protect her. And to keep her with him, always…

Excerpt:

She couldn’t help it, she had to do it. The photographer was late, she had her makeup on, her hair was ready, so she could indulge before she had to work.

Lifting her face up to the sun, drinking in the fragrance that was the Seychelles, Hannah lifted the layers of pink tulle of the skirt she was wearing and twirled. The make-up artist and the hair stylist laughed.

“I was wondering when you’d do that,” Sandy, the make-up artist said.

Looking over her shoulder, Sandy grinned. “Looks like our photographer caught you in the act.”

Hannah looked up into a pair of dark brown eyes that were watching her over the lens of a camera. This had to be Darryn Cavallo. The rumors were true—he was drop-dead gorgeous. Tall, muscled, with tousled, ink-black hair. Wow.

She didn’t wait to be introduced to him, didn’t wait to listen to his instructions. With her eyes locked on him, she slid into a pose. He stared at her for another minute before he lifted the camera.

And then her body started moving to a beat only audible to her and the photographer. Without any conscious thought, she posed and turned, instinctively knowing exactly what he wanted her to do.

The air around her stopped moving, breathing became difficult, any minute now she was going to go up in flames. Every cell in her body was reacting to him.

Today as part of his Loving the book launch party, I’m having tea with Nicholas Fisher, author of the YA Paranormal romance, Becky’s kiss. Don’t you love the title? It instantly took me back many years ago 🙂

D. What triggered this specific story?
I was co-coaching a baseball game and the other coach told me a story about a boy who was hit in the chest when he was at bat. He was ok, but my imagination ran away with it. What if he died there at the plate? What if he was supposed to be the greatest hitter of all time and break every record? I formed a story around a spirit getting a second chance, and falling in love with a girl his age who gets wrapped up in the current circumstance. Of course, both will have to make a choice, love or baseball…or maybe both??

Mmmm, Nicholas, ‘ha’ is not an answer 🙂

 

“It could not be worse for ninth grader Becky Michigan on her first day at a new school, sitting in beet juice and staining her white jeans in a classroom about to fill up with students. In the nick of time, a gorgeous blonde boy named Danny comes in and offers his over-sized baseball jersey so she can cover up, get to the office, and change. By the time she pulls the shirt over her head, however, he has mysteriously disappeared.

 

Becky scours the school in search of her dream-athlete and wonders why after contact with him she has magically gained the ability to throw a fastball ninety miles per hour! Instead of finding the answer, however, Becky’s new skill pits her against the school bully and the entire varsity baseball team.
That night, after her exciting showdown in front of the entire school, Danny shows up at her bedroom window. If she will agree to meet him behind Rutledge High at midnight on the ball field at the edge of the woods, he promises to reveal a secret meant to alter the past and change her life forever.”

Seeing him again tumbles Charlie back into her past. There are still so many unanswered questions: he’s convinced she left him, she’s convinced he left her. Charlie minimizes the ‘ex’ factor.

Touched to the core – the 3rd story in the Touched series

TouchedToTheCore-ByElsaWinckler-800x1200It’s release day for Touched to the core – the 3rd book in the Touched series about the South African billionaire hotel tycoon Cavallo brothers. This story is about David and Dana.

 

 

 

 

 

Blurb: 

He gave her his heart, but can he give her the truth?

Schoolteacher Dana Roux doesn’t need sexy hotel tycoon David Cavallo to add to her troubles. They have absolutely nothing in common—she’s a simple schoolteacher in a small coastal town, and he has more money than he knows what to do with. Besides, as a former journalist, he’d remember the news stories about her dad’s alleged involvement in a dirty, Ponzi-like scheme, and his subsequent suicide. The last thing she wants is for the dark shadow of that scandal—and tragedy—to fall upon her once again. Especially since she knows her dad was innocent.

For David, flirting with a beautiful woman comes as naturally as breathing. So when he winds up kissing his sister-in-law’s best friend, he realizes Dana isn’t just another pretty pair of lips. But things between them get complicated quickly when he discovers who her father was, and that it was David’s own news story that blew the case wide open and sent her father to jail—and to his death. David’s not sure what to believe, but he knows he can’t let Dana blame him forever. Especially since she insists her father was an innocent man. But when Dana’s life is threatened, he realizes that he might not have uncovered the whole story. And that now, older and wiser, he just might be the only one who can uncover the truth.

Short excerpt:

“What are you doing?” he asked and hurried over to her.

She wouldn’t look up at him and turned her back on him when he was close.

“I’m phoning Caitlin to come and pick me up,” she said in a clipped voice and lifted the phone to her ear.

He grabbed it and ended the call.

“What are you doing?” she cried out, her eyes suspiciously bright.

Were those tears?

“You don’t have to phone Caitlin, I’ll take you home.” Why the hell was she upset?

She made a grab for her phone but he held it above his head.

“David!” she called out. “My phone, I…” A tear escaped and rolled over her cheek.

Angrily, she wiped it away and whipped around. “Fine. Then I’ll walk.” She sniffed and marched toward the front door.

David stared at her for a few seconds before his brain registered what she was doing.

With two strides, he reached the door before her and moved in front of it.

“David…” she began and another tear slipped on to her face.

Frowning, David pulled her closer. “What the hell is going on? Why do you want to phone Caitlin to pick you up? What happened between last night and now?” he growled.

“You tell me!” she nearly shouted. “This morning you…” She hiccupped and wiped a hand over her eyes. “This morning and last night, you couldn’t get enough of me and now you…you don’t even want to look at me!”

“That’s not true!” he shouted, upset because she was crying, upset because he wasn’t quite sure what exactly was going on.

She sniffed, wiped her face before looking him straight in the eye. “If you’ve had enough of me, you can tell me,” she said, just a slight tremor still audible in her voice. “I’m a big girl, I can take it. I’ve always known this can’t last. But I didn’t think you’d be too much of a coward to tell me to my face.”

And suddenly he was the hell in. This damn woman had him all tied up in knots and now she wanted to tell him what he was feeling as well. “Oh, you’ve always known, have you? And why is that?” he asked.

She rolled her eyes. Rolled her eyes!

“Because, David, I’m a school teacher from Hermanus, my dad was in jail. You are a Cavallo, you probably have more money than you know what to do with. I know I’ve only been a temporary diversion for you. One that you are now clearly over. Let’s leave it at that,” she said in a cold voice and tried to move past him to the front door.

He was so astonished at the drivel she was talking, he was speechless for a number of seconds. But then he saw her eyes, bright with tears and a slither of hope had him swallowing a grin.

A glass of Pino Noir with Author Ally Shields

La-Vierge-Noir-2012-510x790Today I’m having a glas of wine with Ally Shields and we’re talking about her latest release, Cross Keys: Revelation, an Elvenrude novel, Book 2, a dark elf urban fantasy.

She prefers a Pino Noir and I’ve picked a bottle from La Vierge, a wine farm in the Hemel and Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth) in South Africa. This vintage expresses the typical earthy and savoury aroma of this fine Burgundy variety and is backed by a red fruit character.

Before we talk about her book, let’s find out more about Ally 🙂

Questions:

A. Quickies

  1. Tea or wine? wine (pinot noir)
  1. Read or jog? read
  1. Cats or dogs? I love them both.
  1. Heels or flats? sneakers and sandals
  1. Boxers or briefs? boxers
  1. Milk, dark or white chocolate: Yes!
  1. Sweet or savoury: Yum, savoury.
  1. Sea or mountains: mountains

B. Five likes and five dislikes

love spring, summer, fall; hate winter

love broccoli; hate brussel sprouts

love pierced earrings; don’t like other body piercings

love horses; not so crazy about pigs (they’re too smelly)

love to visit the zoo; avoid the reptile building, especially the snakes

C. Three things on your bucket list

Return to Egypt one more time (not likely under the current unrest).

Find a winter home some place warm.

See the cherry blossoms in DC in the spring

D. What triggered this specific story?

Cross Keys: Revelation is a continuation of the trilogy begun with Cross Keys (An Elvenrude Novel). For a long time I wasn’t sure the original book would have a sequel, but over time I realized Kam and Seth’s story wasn’t finished, nor was her sister’s. Revelation and the final book, Unity (I just submitted it to the publisher), tie up those loose ends and resolve the major conflicts. That’s the fun with fiction…you get to make it come out right in the end. 🙂

Revelation-ByAllyShields-453x680Blurb (Cross Keys: Revelation):

If everyone keeps secrets, no one will survive…

Six months after the nightmare in Cross Keys, Kam Ryndel is enjoying her freedom in New Orleans and doesn’t miss the constraints of Elven society. She’s immersed herself in working missions for the CIA, even if it means less time to spend with her boyfriend, Seth. Seth’s not so happy about that. Having shouldered the responsibility of his family’s obligations, he’s losing patience with Kam’s lack of commitment to her own—and to him.

Then a guild worker is attacked by an invisible assailant, and everyone suspects another portal breach by rogues from Elvenrude. As Kam and Seth look for answers, a gang-related CIA mission interrupts the investigation, and Kam is taken to a place she never knew existed—beyond the Louisiana bayou.

Angered by Kam’s new mission, Seth enlists the help of his cousin Rhyden to solve the mysterious guild-worker attack. Instead of an assailant, they discover reports of ghost sightings all over town. Not that unusual for New Orleans, but these seem…different. In a mission complicated by gangsters, feuds, failing magic, and old enemies—and the uncertain loyalty of the Elven king—Seth learns something even worse. Kam is missing. And he isn’t sure if she’s alive or dead…

Snippet from Touched to the soul – answer for TRR Year-end party

TRR Year end splash partyI’m so thrilled to be a apart of The Romance Reviews Year End Splash Party in November again.

Touched to the soul is the 2nd story in the Touched series about the four sexy hotel tycoon brothers. This is Dale and Zoe’s story.

 

 

 

 

Enjoy the snippet below – you’ll also find the answer to the question in the TRR’s Year Splash Eng Party in here 🙂

TouchedToTheSoul_ByElsaWinckler-50pct

‘Zoe closed her eyes and wished the floor would swallow her up. She loved her romance-writing mother dearly, but at times like this she could cheerfully throttle her. She was forever trying to find husbands for her daughters. Zoe hoped now that Caitlin was married, her mother would back off, but obviously she had no such plans.

Smiling, her mother waved at them and moved away. The music changed again, and the next minute Dale stood in front of her, holding out his hand for a dance. Zoe glanced toward Hannah and Dana, but the other two Cavallo’s held out their hands toward her sister and their friend as well.

There was no way she could refuse this dance—her mother would never forgive her. OK, she’d do this and then nobody could accuse her of not behaving properly.

This was such a bad idea, but short of causing a scene, she couldn’t say no. She took a deep breath and, without looking at Dale, put her hand in his—her last rational act.

The next minute Dale had her on her feet and spun her around. Then he pulled her in and kept her close to his body as he danced around the floor with her. Her feet followed his as if she’d done this a million times before, as if they’d always been dancing together. His movements were flawless, graceful, intoxicating.

This close to him, his scent filled her nostrils, seeped through her skin into her bloodstream from where it filled every cell in her body.
