Scholarly, Sweet and with Swords! - Daughter of Mystery at Chasing the Po

"The story was everything I was looking for," writes Chasing the Po's Cameron, after reading Heather Rose Jones's Daughter of Mystery. Like so many other reviewers, Cameron found much to praise in the story, including:
This was also one of the sweetest love stories I have read in a long time... When I began reading, I suspected that Jones would take us down the old trite road of an antagonistic relationship between the heiress Margerit and her initially reluctant bodyguard Barbara in order to heighten the sexual tension. But she didn't. She gave us something new - a genuine friendship built upon their shared interest in philosophy and theology.
The second Novel of Alpennia, The Mystic Marriage, will be released next year!

Lesbian Romance - The Midnight Moon by Gerri Hill Now Available!

It was only a fling. They went back to their lives, and it should have ended there, but this is a Gerri Hill story and you know there's more...

It was a fun, holiday romance under a moonlit sky. After exchanging passionate nights and only first names, Peyton Watts and Logan Weaver go back to their lives.

For Peyton, it’s a return to her steady, conservative social circle and the not unwelcome overtures from attorney Margot Joseph. Meanwhile, Logan’s free spirit is happy again moving with the college crowd.

So when fate throws them once more into each other’s paths, it shouldn’t mean a thing…
