Something New

To support my fellow authors, I'm going to try something new on the blog.  Each week, except during Christmas, I will feature a book.  I will include as much info about the book as possible as well as where you can get your hands on a copy. 

First in our line up is Raeliksen, Book One in the Emerald Isle Trilogy by Renee Vincent.  Here's where you can get your hands on a copy:

Here's what Goodreads says:
Mara, the daughter of an Irish clansman, was raised to believe the men of the North are heathens - murderous pagans without a moral bone in their bodies. Despite warnings of the Northmen's raids, and the growing threat of another incursion, Mara is continually drawn to her favorite place - the River Shannon.

Here's an excerpt found on

I'm currently reading Raeliksen and hope to be done today.  I'm a sucker for an Irish romance and Renee's book 1 is no exception.  Her description of the Irish country and sea are spot on.  I've visited the country and reading Raeliksen I feel I'm right there standing on the cliffs watching the water break against the rocks below. 

From the start of the book, there is action.  An attempted kidnapping, a bloody nose, racing horses, dark caves, and the smell of rain.  I feel like I'm there right along the Princess while she tries to wrap her head around the actions of the Viking she's with.

If you enjoy historical romances, especially with an Irish flare, I highly recommend this wonderful novel.  I can't wait to finish so I can start book 2.

Now, I need suggestions on what to call this new adventure.  Let's have a contest to have some fun with it.  The winner will not only get to name my book pushing endeavour but will also win a new, hot off the presses book mark!

Leave your ideas below and a winner will be selected before next Thursday.


  1. You are so wonderful! Thank you for this great post about my book and the praise you've given it. I am so glad to hear that you are enjoying it and are anxious to start the next in the series.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Jen!

  2. Oh, the pressure of a name! The Sample Lady at a local grocery store offers her samples as 'Try a bite' so maybe instead of 'Try a bite', it could be 'Try a book'.

  3. Hi Jen! What a great blog you have! I have to say also a great book to feature. I loved Raeliksen and couldn't put it down when I read it!

  4. Hi Jennifer! This is a great idea. Hmmm...going along with Jennifer Johnson's idea, you could call it Book Bites. But that might be too vampirish. You could call it Romantic Reads if you plan on only doing romance books.
