After losing her child, Ginger Dysart was lost in grief. But since moving to Thunder Point, a small town on the Oregon coast, Ginger is finally moving forward. Her job at the flower shop is peaceful and fulfilling, and she’s excited to be assisting with the Lacoumette wedding.

In spite of her lasting heartache, Ginger is swept up in the pleasure of the occasion. But the beauty of the Lacoumette farm and the joy of the gregarious family are ruined by an unfortunate encounter with the bride’s brother, Matt. Struggling with painful memories of his own, Matt makes a drunken spectacle of himself when he tries to make a pass at Ginger, forcing her to flee the scene in embarrassment.

But when Matt shows up at the flower shop determined to make amends, what started out as a humiliating first meeting blossoms into something much deeper than either of them expected. Everyone around them worries that Ginger will end up with a broken heart yet again. But if Ginger has the courage to embrace the future, and if Matt can finally learn to let go of the past, there may still be hope for a happy ending.

AlbertNothlit-avatarJen:  Today we welcome Albert Nothlit to Romancing the Book.  Albert, will you share a short bio with us?
Albert:  Hello, my name is Albert Nothlit, and writing fiction is my passion. I have a background in engineering,  having studied a Masters in Environmental Systems Engineering at UCL, and I think it tends to show in the geeky details I sometimes include in my stories!  I love writing science fiction and M/M romance,  and if I can find some way to combine the two then I definitely will do it. I currently live in Mexico with my longtime boyfriend and soon-to-be husband, somehow finding time to write despite my job. Links to my published books as well as a couple of free stories I have released online can be found at my website, http://www.albertnothlit.com.  I am also very active at the website Gay Authors,  where I publish my free stories: http://www.gayauthors.org/author/albertnothlit

MK SchillerJen: We start off this week with a visit from MK Schiller. MK, will you share a short bio with the Romancing the Book readers?
MK: I am a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. I have a full time life and two busy teenagers, but in the dark of night, I sit by the warm glow of my computer monitor, reading or writing, usually with some tasty Italian…the food that is!

I started imagining stories in my head at a very young age. In fact, I got so good at it that friends asked me to create plots featuring them as the heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. You’ve heard of fan fiction… this was friend fiction.

I hope you enjoy my stories and always find The Happily Ever After in every endeavor.

myselfTop Five Things I Like to Do by Jacquie Biggar

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite things to do since moving to Vancouver Island. Born and raised in north central Alberta I’ve seen my fair share of long, cold winters. Shoveling, de-icing, freezing, winter in Alberta lasts an average of six long months and can be very depressing. So when my daughter moved to Vancouver Island for university and needed help caring for our grandson, I was more than happy to go.

We sold our home and restaurant business in Alberta and settled in beautiful Victoria. All of this led to my decision to give a fair shot to my long held dream of writing a book. I joined RWA-Romance Writer’s of America, the online chapter of Kiss of Death, and my local group, Vira-Vancouver Island Romance Authors. I took classes, made friends in the writing community, and achieved my dream with my first book, Tidal Falls, releasing September of 2014.

Since then, I’ve published the second in my Wounded Hearts series, The Rebel’s Redemption, and hope to finish the third book this year. I’m also involved in two multi-author book sets, one releasing this summer, Dangerous Encounters, and the other in December, title to follow.

I’m getting ready to release my 40th novel! It’s a huge career milestone for me, and I hope all of you will help me celebrate by enjoying my new trilogy, “The Lost Lords of Radcliffe.”

The three books are a “real” trilogy, with one story leading into the next and the drama building with each novel. I’m releasing them over the summer so you’ll be able to read the 2nd and 3rd books right away without having to wait months or years to find out what happens. HEART’S DELIGHT will be here on June 1st. HEART’S DESIRE is coming on July 1st. And Book 3, HEART’S DEMAND–my 40th novel!!!–will be here onAugust 1st. It will be a great summer of sexy, yummy reading.

The 3 novels will be released as e-books and print books. The e-version will be available for all e-readers, but the print books will not appear in stores. They will have to be ordered on-line at Amazon. The covers are beautiful, the stories breathtaking, heartbreaking, dramatic, and thrilling. I think it’s my best work yet.

I hope you’ll spend the summer–with me! And my Lost Lords of Radcliffe. Coming June, July, and August of 2015.
