Clear off the Shelves Blog Hop

Welcome to the Clear off the Shelves Blog Hop. I have a three books waiting for new owners. First is my own novel, The Rhyme’s Library.

Crazy Aunt Charlotte is missing again. Blair Rhyme, Rose Arbor’s young librarian, doesn’t bother to check Charlotte’s regular haunts -- the Veteran’s of Foreign Wars lodge, the Four H-Club, or the bins behind Milton’s Fish shop – because Charlotte is dead. Blair discovered her body amongst the boxes of what-nots and whatevers in the library’s basement. Unfortunately, when she returns to the library with the police Charlotte is missing. Again.

Desperate to prove that she doesn’t share her aunt’s mental illness and that Charlotte really has been murdered, Blair tangles with a former lover, a disturbingly handsome stranger and a wacky cast of Rose Arbor characters.

At first Blair tries to dismiss the skin-pricking sensation of being watched, but as small disturbances grow increasingly threatening, she must confront the enemies, real or imagined, that drove her aunt to madness and death in the Rhyme’s Library.

The Dark Divine, by Bree Despain (hardcover)
 Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared--the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in his own blood--but she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night held.

The memories her family has tried to bury resurface when Daniel returns, three years later, and enrolls in Grace and Jude's high school. Despite promising Jude she'll stay away, Grace cannot deny her attraction to Daniel's shocking artistic abilities, his way of getting her to look at the world from new angles, and the strange, hungry glint in his eyes.

The closer Grace gets to Daniel, the more she jeopardizes her life, as her actions stir resentment in Jude and drive him to embrace the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind the boy's dark secret...and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it--her soul.

Edenbrooke, by Julianne Donaldson
Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath and the amorous attentions of an unwanted suitor. So when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she’ll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry.

From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will Marianne be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke.

To enter you must become a blog follower. You will get an additional entry for every one of my novels--Stealing Mercy, A Ghost of a Second Chance, The Rhyme's Library and Hailey's Comments-- you “like” on Amazon or Facebook. Links are on the sidebars are on the right. Since I have four novels, you have the chance at 8 entries. Please be sure to leave a comment with your contact information so I can let you know if you win.

And just so you know, my novel Stealing Mercy is currently free on Amazon (although I requested to raise it’s price more than a month ago—so who knows how long it will stay that way.) Stealing Mercy has been on Amazon’s historical romance top 100 list for more than two months, and for the first month it was consistently in the top ten with it’s rank reaching as high as #1 in historical romance and #3 overall. (This free thing may disappear tomorrow, or it may always stay there. It’s hard to predict the mighty Zon.) Please feel free to download it while it’s still there. (If the price doesn’t change soon, I’m going to pull it and republish at a more profitable price before I put up Rescuing Rita, the sequel.)

Good luck and thanks for dropping by. Please visit all my blog friends to see what they have up their sleeves.
