Review: Juli D. Revezzo kicks off a new historical romance series on a high note with all of the atmosphere of an era long gone by! Wonderfully drawn characters, a heartbreaking event and the determination to find community cohesiveness [in which] Honorine finds [a] handsome Scot more than a companionable co-chair, moments of lightheartedness, and a budding romance, this one’s a keeper and Honorine is a gem!” ~ Dii, Tome Tender
Denver’s one goal in life is to become a fashion designer. Unfortunately, she needs rent money. Why not volunteer for an outlandish time travel experiment? It could be fun and spark new fashion ideas.
But the experiment takes her places she never expected, cutting her off from her dreams and dropping her into the world of a woman accused of witchcraft during the Salem Witch trials. No promised stipend is worth a death sentence and bargaining for her life.
Setting: present day and Salem, 1692
(A Time Travel Novella of 130-140 pages. Amazon’s page calculation is wrong–as usual.)
When Vesta Bartlett, a wealthy alchemist and inventor, arrives in England to finalize an arranged marriage and help overhaul a family friend’s outdated ironworks, she never expects to find the family so secretive, nor to develop feelings for her fiancé’s younger brother, Henry.
But the growing attraction between Vesta and Henry is just the beginning of their troubles. Things really heat up when they’re drawn into a secret project for Queen Victoria’s military, one that requires Vesta’s knowledge of clockwork and Henry’s iron.
An epidemic has wiped out all the dogs in Britain, and beyond. If the military fail in their effort to restore the species, a clockwork creation may be all that stands in the way of a world without canine companionship.
For Avery, her holiday duties as a forest ranger oftentimes involve tracking revelers who have lost their way in her wilderness domain. After a camper clashes with a reindeer, however, Avery is shocked to discover the creature is defended not by Santa, but by the formidable, yet gentle, shapeshifting Lord of the Forest.
Can the magic of the forest bring together a ranger and a supernatural being, or is Avery destined to celebrate yet another Christmas alone?
An enchanting fairy tale to celebrate the magic of the season!
Gwenevieve Macken’s well-ordered world falls into chaos as encroaching interlopers scheme to possess both her and her land. Although she’s been trained to spot the signs of inhuman evil in men, the amassing armies take on guises she never expected.
When a foreign guardian presents himself as her only option for salvation, Gwenevieve must make a choice between her desires, and fulfilling the mythic fate to which she was born. A forced marriage to a Tuatha dé Danann warrior isn’t part of her plan.
~~This book concerns a heretofore unknown group in the Stacy Macken’s family tree (see below) , and the harshad battle that took place on the original Irish family homestead in the year 513.~~
Druid Warrior Prince is a fast-paced medieval romance with neat magic and interesting characters. It’s the third book in the Celtic Stewards Chronicles, but it can be read at any time in the series and doesn’t have any cliffhangers. It’s a pagan story about Tuatha dé Danann warriors, Druid heroes, and evil Harbingers. The climax in the story happens on Samhain, where our modern-day Halloween comes from.
It’s a coming-of-age story with a strong female protagonist named Gwenevieve. She has misplaced ideals when it comes to choosing a husband. I don’t like to give any clues away, but I was disappointed that her newly realized ability and recently acquired weapons weren’t used in the main battle.
This book was lots of fun to read. Please be aware that there is some sexual content without being overly explicit. For this reason, I would suggest that it’s more appropriate for new adults.
Synopsis: In the winter of 1943, Benjamin is just a grunt and Army cook-until he finds himself captured, along with his unit, taken prisoner by Mussolini’s troops after the Battle of Tunisia.
Transported to a POW camp in Italy, Benjamin is plagued with intense visions of the Norse Goddess Frigga and her retinue of Valkyries, berserkers, and other magical beings.
When he encounters a woman bearing an uncanny resemblance to the goddess, he wonders if he hasn’t been entangled in a battle between the natural and the supernatural-a battle for the present and the future.
Synopsis: Surely, lightning can’t strike twice…
When Sarahjane attends Lady Morville’s costume party, she never expects to learn her old beau Felix Gryffith is under the illustrious woman’s patronage and stands on the cusp of making a world-changing discovery. Felix, whose lies disgraced her in the eyes of the London elite by labeling her a flirt.
Felix’s love for Sarahjane has never wavered, despite the scandal that forced them apart. He’s desperate to tell her the truth, if he can convince her to listen.
Fate lurked in the shadows that night, years ago. Has it returned to grant Sarahjane and Felix their wishes, or terrorize them?
Setting: Britain, 1888.
Recent review: From Night Owl Reviews:
“I found the story between the pages to be a great read. I cannot help but like the history lessons in some of the story lines. I had no clue how the story or mystery was going to end. Overall there are great twists and turns…I would actually love to read more from this author.” ~ Twitch
This next one is a little different than the others, although I hope you will enjoy it.
For Miss Phoebe Lockswell, fashionable London tea parties and balls aren’t her style. Instead, she prefers to tinker tirelessly with a clockwork diffuser she’s built from scratch. If only she can get the invention to work on command, she might earn her way out of an arranged marriage to a repugnant member of the House of Commons.
London watchmaker Mortimer Kidd was brought up hard in the arms of an infamous London gang. Despite the respectability he strives for now, the gang leader is blackmailing him. When Mortimer sees Phoebe’s diffuser, he thinks he’s found a way to buy himself out of trouble. The brash Phoebe manages to steal his heart, however, before he can purloin her invention.
Will Mortimer’s unsavory past catch up to him before he convinces Phoebe of his devotion? Worse, once Phoebe learns the truth, will she ever trust him again?
Setting: London, 1898

Murder upon a Midnight Clear
Genre: A Christmas-set Paranormal Romantic Suspense.
‘Tis the season … for death.
Murder reminds Detective Helene Collias of Holly PD that crime doesn’t respect holidays. And the last victim she ever expected to find in her case files is the sister of her old flame, Sean Grant. Ordinarily, Helene’s psychic gifts give her an edge but this time, that gift has short-circuited. Could her lingering attraction to Sean be blurring her abilities, or is something more sinister at work?
Something terrifying stalks Caitlin and her beloved Trevor. Something the bits and pieces she left claimed she had to make sense of–or so legend says. When the curator of their collection finds Caitlin’s long forgotten diary, she wonders will it tell the whole tale? Will it tell why Caitlin seemed so determined to tell the difference between reality and nightmare even as she continued the fight to defend her family from evil? Will it explain why she thought her world twisted? If she really became a witch?
What will the holidays hold for Caitlin? Perhaps the answer lies between the lines of her story, one of lessons, struggles, and the hopes she carried like a warrior’s shield.
