Now Leaving Kindle Unlimited Lending Library

Hey everyone, I hope you’re well this week. I am. I did lots of yardwork this weekend, so I’m a little achy–but writing along as usual. I’ve almost met my goal for Campwrimo. At this point, I doubt I will meet it, but it’s going to be close! I may finish that book before Thanksgiving. I hope. (I’m hoping long before!)

For those of you with Amazon Prime accounts, Nooks or Ipads, or Kobo ereaders, I wanted to let you know, I’ve decided to take two titles out of KU. That will remove them from the Kindle Lending Library. What titles?

My Gothic romance/fantasy Reign of Tarot boxed set.

Reign of Tarot boxed set by Juli D. Revezzo, Gothic Romance, Raven Queen Publications, French revolution, fiction, paranormal romance, Kindle

And I’ve decided, likewise, to remove my steampunk/Victorian Romance Watchmaker’s Heart

.Watchmaker's Heart by Juli D. Revezzo, Steampunk romance

This is a big step for WMH. It’s always been in KU, but after  41/2 years, it’s time. So I wanted to give you a heads up, if you wanted to read it for free with KU, now’s your last chance.

Reign of Tarot, if you missed it last week, you can find the synopsis on this post. They drop out of the program by August 7th, so read now, if you wish! But for those with Nooks, Kobos, and Ipads, look for it in those stores soon.

Hi, y’all. I hope you’ve been well. We have. I’ve been writing in Camp Wrimo and hoping to have that finished soon. What about you? Did you sign up for Camp Wrimo?

Anyway, between that, I have decided to take the  Reign of Tarot boxed set out of Kindle KU. It’ll be a few weeks before that happens, however, so for a few days (UPDATE circa 8/10/2020: IT’s NOW AVAILABLE WIDE at Kobo, Itunes, as well as Amazon, AND THE SALE IS OVER), I’ve put it on sale. It’s even got a new cover and a new story involved. 🙂 If you’d like to check it out, it’s on Amazon.

Synopsis:

WHAT THE CARDS FORETELL MAY BE REAL, AFTER ALL

1793: Having escaped the Reign of Terror, Emilie Maigny took refuge in England, trying to come to grips with the life and loss she left behind. When her brother, Sinjon, returns, a terrifying evil swoops down upon her. Nightmares plague her now, providing strange clues … but to what?

Scottish-born Linton Morrison spent his entire life in luxury, whiling away the hours in intense study of the tarot and the cards’ hidden meanings, but until he met the lovely Emilie Maigny, he would never have guessed how important his study might be–to his life and Emilie’s survival when terrible evil strikes.

A Cypher is all Emilie needs, but what is it? Is Linton the key? He may charm her heart–and he may be her only salvation.

The hero and heroine and family revisited–at, yes, Halloween)

And for completion’s sake, House of Cards:

Can you gamble with Fate?

A young nobleman escapes the Reign of Terror in 18th century France to find himself dragged into an even worse fate–a hellish underworld wherein he is cajoled and put on trial by a demon tribunal for crimes he never committed. Can he thwart his fate, one worse than the guillotine?

The new synopsis hasn’t gone live on Amazon  but the books are updated. (If you just want Lady of the Tarot, of course, it’s always available on Amazon and as an audiobook at Audible in the US here, or the UK here,  Germany, and France. It’s also available on Itunes.)

historical romance/gaslamp romance #sale #Kobo #BarnesandNoble #Kindle

Hi, all. I just wanted to pop in and let you know, next to my new novel, Vesta’s Clockwork Companions, releasing (about which you can see more here), my previous historical/gaslamp  romance novel HOUSE OF DARK ENVY is on sale at Amazon and Barnes and Noble too) today only.

The synopsis is as follows :

House of Dark Envy by Juli D. Revezzo, Gothic romance, historical romance, gaslamp romance, Kobo, Kindle, discount, limited timeSurely lightning can’t strike twice!

1888: 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?

Excerpt:

Sarahjane slipped into the garden, grabbing onto a wrought iron lattice to steady herself. Her laughter rang through the air. She swung herself around the lattice, and stopped before him, resting her delicate hand on (Felix’s) chest.

Her touch warmed him.

Sarahjane lowered her eyes. “Do it for me, Felix. I’ll give you a kiss, if you do.”

Felix swallowed back surprise and longing, glanced around the garden. Everyone was still inside. He ran a hand down her arm. “I’d love to kiss you,” he said. “But not after. I don’t want to hurt you.”

“You won’t.”

He feared it might be possible. His worry darkened as if storm clouds filled him. “I might.”

Sarahjane laced her arms around his neck. “Now, then. But don’t disappoint me.”

Was she going to kiss him?

She licked her lips.

Young desire warred with his reason.

“Your father will kill us if he finds out.”

“No he won’t. He knows I love you.”

She loved him.

Sarahjane stood on her toes and leaned closer, brushing her lips against his. Lightning tingled from her lips, into his heart.

Did someone intrude on them? Felix dismissed all but Sarahjane.

He vibrated almost as he had the day the lightning struck him, but this, this was pleasant, in comparison.

She broke the kiss, batted her lashes. “I do love you, you know. Now. Show me?”

He guided Sarahjane a few strides away from the trellis. Then he returned to it and wrapped his fingers around the warm, iron bar.

“Felix!” His older brother stepped into view behind her. “Oh,” he said. “Pardon me for interrupting.”

Sarahjane snapped around.

“What do you want, Jackson?” Felix asked.

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

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?

Weekend Writing Warriors #1: WATCHMAKER’S HEART

(This is an old post circa May, 2016) Entering a new snippet blog hop, this week.  This week’s excerpt for Weekend Writing Warriors is from my novel Watchmaker’s Heart. A little glimpse at Cora’s first hint of the (possible) new man in our heroine Phoebe’s life.

Available on Amazon.

 

 

Watchmaker's Heart by Juli D. Revezzo, Steampunk romance
“Mortimer,” Cora muttered.

Phoebe nodded.

“So, to top everything, you’ve already memorized his first name and what he does for a living?” Cora said.

“Yes. He thinks the goddess [ed note: Phoebe’s diffuser] will work,” she said. “Even suggested I give it to—”

She glanced to Cora’s chaperone, strolling ahead, and clamped her mouth shut.

“Who?” Cora demanded.

Phoebe gulped. “I forget.”

Cora’s light eyes lit with mirth. “You do not! Tell me everything!”

She waved a hand, batting the conversation away. “No one important.”

“Important or exotic enough to make you uncomfortable.”

 

 

Who did Mortimer suggest and why does it make Phoebe uncomfortable? You’ll have to read WATCHMAKER’S HEART to find out! 🙂

Genre: Historical Romance with Steampunk elements.

Synopsis:
