The doppelgangers are coming!

Citrus Leahy is on the run from doppelgangers! Now she and a group of teenagers whose lives have also been taken over have to figure out how to stay hidden. The doppelgangers could be anywhere or anyone. Her crush Aedan makes her feel safe except that he keeps reminding her of the guy she left behind...his doppelganger!
Citrus also can't forget that the doppelgangers have her mother, but she has no idea how to save her when their group is barely saving themselves. It seems like the doppelgangers are always hot on their trail and there's danger around every corner, maybe even from within.


Doppelganger 2: On the Run

Milda Harris


Excerpt #1

I turned the radio up a little louder. It was a song by Lady Gaga and I liked it. I also needed to be distracted from my thoughts. I started singing along to the song in my head. There was no way I was going to sing out loud and embarrass myself in front of the others, but I needed something to make me stop thinking about Finn and Aedan and doppelgangers. The doppelgangers. My hands started shaking again. I tried to regain control. I could not think about them. Well, I couldn't not think about them either, but I could try to distract myself. It was better that I think about Aedan and Finn or better yet Lady Gaga and the song on the radio.
            I stared ahead at the road. The song changed. I didn't know the song so I couldn't sing along. I forced myself to listen to the words as a distraction. It was a love song. I tried not to look back at Finn. I focused on the road. It was never ending. I looked at the clock. Two hours left driving. I could make it. The song changed to one I knew. I sang along to the song on the radio under my breath. Stay awake. Stay awake. Stay awake and don't think about doppelgangers.
            That was when I saw the flashing red lights behind me. Adrenaline flooded my body. Suddenly being awake wasn't a problem.

I was given book for honest review. It is a series so please read book 1 before starting this adventure. On the run and hiding from the doppelgangers, Citrus and her friends have escaped and now try to figure out how to survive and help get the ones they had to leave behind. Trying to deal with this has put the whole group under pressure after all they’re just kids. Be prepared for lots of surprises and action. Looking forward to continuing this awesome journey that they have been tossed and thrown into.



Excerpt #2

"It's at the bottom of my neck, just below my shirt line," I said turning my head to look back at Finn.
I was surprised to find him right behind me. I felt my breath catch at meeting his eyes. Our faces were only inches apart. His eyes were so emerald green. I quickly turned my head back around hoping that nobody noticed that my cheeks were turning bright pink.
"Okay," Finn said a moment later. "I'm...starting."
A second later I felt Finn's hands moving the hair from the back of my neck before I could get a chance to do it. My breath caught. Then I felt the back of the neck of my shirt pull down as Finn looked for the telltale doppelganger bump. His fingers brushed my neck. I felt chills run up my spine and goosebumps that I hoped nobody noticed ran up my arms. I tried to stay as still as I could. Finn's fingers ran over the bump as if to check and make sure it was real. I didn't move. My stomach was doing summersaults. I hoped my crush wasn't obvious to the others. Please, oh please, oh please.




Doppelganger Book #1

Wait. What? Citrus Leahy has a doppelganger! It's probably aliens taking over the world and her life has just turned totally upside down. Goodbye, normal. Hello, paranormal! Luckily, her crush Aedan has the exact same problem!
I was given book for honest review. Citrus wakes up one day to find her life is not her own. The doppelgangers are taking over. Trying to find out where her friends are takes her on a pain filled dangerous adventure she’s not prepared for. A good teen drama filled book that’s bound to cause a stir.

Book Title: Without You Here
Author: Carter Ashby
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 9, 2014
After fighting with her boyfriend, Ettie’s only goal is to drown her sorrows in some Jack Daniels. But when she walks into a country tavern, her attention is immediately redirected to the sexy, older man at the bar. He looks lonely, and sad, and absolutely mouth-watering. Ettie can’t wait to put a smile on his face. For the first time in two years, Wyatt finds himself jolted out of his grief—and by a spunky, vivacious young woman who somehow sees right into his soul. What follows is a passionate weekend full of more life, laughter, and pure joy than he experienced in twenty years of marriage. After they part ways, Wyatt realizes that his feelings for Ettie run deeper than lust. He knows she has a boyfriend, but when he finds out that the boyfriend is his own son, Blake, Wyatt is shattered. He despairs of ever overcoming the guilt he’s slowly drowning in. But Ettie’s resilience and optimism might just save him after all. This Is Now is the sexy, heartwarming story of overcoming grief, embracing love, and learning to live in the moment.

He didn't look up at me when he spoke. He was sopping up hollandaise sauce with a biscuit. "We should do this again, Ettie. Next weekend. How about it?" My heart was suddenly thundering in my ears. I watched him as he pointedly focused on cleaning his plate. "Are you asking me to be your girlfriend?" I asked. He finally looked up. Those blue eyes were hypnotic. And heartbreaking. "I'm asking you to have another fun weekend with me. That's what I'm asking." My eyes fluttered as they started to sting. "Do you need to get to know me better before asking me to be your girlfriend?" His jaw muscles tensed. "Ettie, I..." "Look, Wyatt. I have had just the absolute best time of my life with you this weekend. I have all the information I need to know I want to be in a relationship with you." He snorted and leaned back in his chair. "You don't know shit about me, Ettie. This was fun. But it was superficial and you know it." My chest constricted. I had to take a moment to swallow back the pain. "It wasn't superficial. I'm sorry it didn't mean as much to you as it did to me..." "It meant plenty and that's why I want to see you again. So let's do it, Ettie. Next weekend. We'll meet at the bar Friday and maybe we could road trip down to Gulf Shores or something. Or we could go zip-lining up at Cave City. All kinds of fun shit we could do together. That's what I want." "I want to go home with you." He looked away and shook his head in frustration.

Snow in July

Snow In July - Tour Banner  


TITLE – Snow in July AUTHOR – Kim Iverson Headlee GENRE – Young Adult Paranormal Historical Romance PUBLICATION DATE – July 2014 LENTH (Pages/# Words) – 386 pages/94K words PUBLISHER – Pendragon Cove Press COVER DESIGNER – Natasha Brown

  Snow in July - Book Cover  


Sir Robert Alain de Bellencombre has been granted what every man wants: a rich English estate in exchange for his valiant service at the Battle of Hastings. To claim this reward, the Norman knight must wed the estate's Saxon heiress. Most men would leap at such an opportunity, but for Alain, who broke his vow to his dying mother by failing to protect his youngest brother in battle, it means facing more easily broken vows. But when rumors of rampant thievery, dangerous beasts, and sorcery plaguing a neighboring estate reach his ears, nothing will make him shirk duty to king and country when people's lives stand at risk. He assumes the guise of a squire to scout the land, its problems, and its lady.

Lady Kendra of Edgarburh has been granted what no woman wants: a forced marriage to an enemy who may be kith or kin to the man who murdered her beloved brother. Compounding her anguish is her failure to awaken the miraculous healing gift bequeathed by their late mother in time to save his life. Although with his dying breath, he made her promise to seek happiness above all, Kendra vows that she shall find neither comfort nor love in the arms of a Norman…unless it snows in July.

Alain is smitten by Lady Kendra from the first moment of their meeting; Kendra feels the forbidden allure of the handsome and courtly Norman "squire." But a growing evil overshadows everyone, invoking dark forces and ensnaring Kendra in a plot to overthrow the king Alain is oath-bound to serve. Kendra and Alain face a battle unlike any other as their honor, their love, their lives, and even their very souls lie in the balance.




I was given book for honest review. Today I was asked to describe my latest read that has stuck with me. I picked this one and said it was a paranormal historical romance. Set in the time of Saxons and Normandy we have the evil masquerading villain, the dashing hero, and the damsel in distress all thrown together in the mix of adventure. Sir Alain must travel on the kings bidding to marry the fair Lady Kendra and to set the next town over straight of dangerous sorcery. I enjoyed telling my friend about this book and hope to read more from this author myself.
  Snow In July - Full Sleeve  

Robert Alain de Bellencombre. Preferring the name Alain for use by close family and friends, he is a Norman knight in the service of William the Conqueror and a court favorite. Being the second son of Count Hugh FitzWalter and Countess Margaret has prevented Alain from inheriting his father’s title and lands, which caused his first fiancée to jilt him in favor of Alain’s older half brother Philippe. Alain is the older brother of Étienne de Bellencombre, and Alain’s failure to protect Étienne at the Battle of Hastings becomes a major source of grief that Alain must learn to vanquish. The device on Alain’s shield represents the Norman town Bellencombre, his birthplace: a white rose nestled in tangle of greenery, on saffron yellow.
Kendra Waldronsdotter. Lady Kendra is the heiress to her father’s estate of Edgarburh, near London. King William the Bastard has decreed that she marry one of his knights...perhaps even the very man who had ambushed her brother and dealt him his mortal wound. Though Kendra cannot bear to imagine what the king will do to her father or her people if she disobeys this command, she vows that she will never marry a Norman unless it snows in July. The name Kendra is the female form of Kendrick, meaning “keen power,” and in fact the Lady Kendra is heiress, through her mother, to a powerful healing gift that she must learn how to wield in order to save those she loves.


FIFTEEN THOUSAND MEN and horses writhed across the valley below, appearing as toys in a children’s game.

Many might consider war a game, but Sir Robert Alain de Bellencombre, knight of Normandy bound to the service of Duke William and commander of a unit in the cavalry reserves, did not number among their ranks.

Edward the Confessor, King of England via his Saxon father but Norman by his mother, was dead. This battle, raging near the coastal hamlet called Hastings, would decide the right of one man to wear the English crown: William the Norman, acknowledged by Pope Alexander to be Edward’s lawful successor; or Harold the Saxon, brother of Edward’s wife, the man alleged to be Edward’s deathbed choice.

Stroking his war horse’s glossy charcoal neck to calm her, Alain pondered Harold’s claim. It had to be true. This many men would not sacrifice their lives for a lie. Yet the vast majority of Harold’s supporters were Saxons harboring no wish to bear the Norman yoke. Perhaps such men might be desperate enough to fight for a lie that promised to restore Saxon rule.

A trumpet blared. He signaled his men forward, couched his lance, and spurred Chou to send her careening into the melee.

Harold’s shield wall, which had seemed impregnable, began to crumble under the onslaught of Alain’s unit, hastened by the desertion of men who no doubt decided they weren’t quite so willing to die. Their lord stood exposed just long enough for a Norman archer to sight his mark. Harold fell, screaming and clutching an arrow that protruded from one eye.

Harold’s supporters closed ranks around him, blocking Alain’s view and giving him more than enough to do as the Saxons redoubled their efforts to guard their lord’s body.

A familiar whirl of colors caught Alain’s attention. The saffron leopard prowling on a green field—Étienne! A Saxon knight, with a blue arm and fist blazing defiance across his gray shield, bore down upon Étienne with leveled lance. Étienne tumbled from his horse. He scrambled to his feet and retrieved his sword, putting it to good use on the Saxons surrounding him, although the knight who’d unhorsed him had already ridden in search of other targets.

Lance long since discarded and sword now rising and falling with fatal precision, Alain surged to reach his brother’s side. Protection of her youngest son had been their dying mother’s wish, and he had sworn on his own life to keep Étienne safe.

Before he could close the distance, another Saxon knight fought past Étienne’s guard to thrust a war-knife into his throat. Through the visor the knight’s eyes gleamed with startling, fathomless malice. Alain could only watch in stunned disbelief as he laid his hand upon Étienne’s chest for a few moments. Uttering a soul-freezing howl, the Saxon yanked out his seax and disappeared into the press with Étienne’s shield, denying Alain vengeance.

Shame and grief rent his heart asunder.

He had failed the two he loved most; failed them so utterly that he could never beg their forgiveness in this lifetime.

Pain slammed into his shoulder, toppling him from the saddle. Étienne’s body broke his fall. He tried to roll clear, but a spear through his chest pinned him to Étienne. His gut convulsed, and bile burned his throat. Blinding agony killed his struggle to free himself. Death’s stench invaded his nostrils.

He closed his eyes and waited for his final journey to begin.

Snow in July - Book Spine


Kim Headlee lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, and assorted wildlife. People & creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins -- the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-20th century -- seem to be sticking around for a while yet.

Kim is a Seattle native (when she used to live in the Metro DC area, she loved telling people she was from "the other Washington") and a direct descendent of 20th-century Russian nobility. Her grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia, and the romantic yet tragic story of how Lydia escaped Communist Russia with the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of Kim's novels. Another novel in the queue will involve her husband's ancestor, the 7th-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.

For the time being, however, Kim has plenty of work to do in creating her projected 8-book Arthurian series, The Dragon's Dove Chronicles, and other novels under her new imprint, Pendragon Cove Press. She also writes romantic historical fiction under the pseudonym "Kimberly Iverson."




I would like to possess. And to clarify, these are not listed in order of preference but as they came to me!

1. Invisibility...because I cannot count the number of times when I've thought to myself, "I would love to be a fly on the wall to observe this," but not literally because flies are gross, and they have worse eyesight than I do.

2. Talk to animals...and of course by this I mean Dr. Doolittle style, not the pseudo-conversations that I conduct often with my cats, dogs, and goats, which leave me wondering what I really said to them!

3. Teleportation...because I love traveling the world, but the "getting there" part of the process isn't always the most fun.

4. Time travel...because being a history buff gives me many time periods that I would love to witness!

5. Make myself look instantly glamorous...just because. :)

6. Become a mermaid...because my 13 years as a competitive swimmer, including as a Division I collegiate recruit, have gifted me with the ability to feel more comfortable in the water than out of it. Just call me "Ariel in reverse." While I'm at it, of course I will be an instantly glamorous mermaid. ;-)

7. Clone myself...because even with as much practice as I've had in multitasking, I still experience times when there just aren't enough hours in the day--especially when preparing two books for release at the same time!

8. Heal with a touch...because what mother wouldn't want the ability to "kiss it and make it better" for real??

9. Flying...because I've always loved the "magic carpet ride" scene on Disney's Aladdin.

10. Turning lead to gold...because I can't think of a single reason why alchemy wouldn't come in handy!

My name is Madeleine Saltz. Madi for short. I'm just a normal person. You wouldn't even look twice when you pass me on the street. On second thought, maybe you would. See, I'm crazy. And not just the woohoo-look-at-me-I’m-doing-the-chicken-dance, kind of crazy.

The real crazy…
I occupy the dainty little room, number 105, at Green Hill Mental institution.

I have brown hair, blue eyes, and a splatter of freckles on my nose.  Like I said, I'm normal, except for the crazy part.

And then there is, Rhuine.

The boy with the black swirl tattoo's. Or my imaginary friend (as my psychologist likes to call him). The friggin’ love of my life.

Whichever name he goes by, he is the other reason why I'm not quite as normal as I would like to believe.

And here's why...


Am I not insane,

For craving a love without pain?

Am I not wishful,

For wanting you here, still?

Am I not naïve,

For believing that you are my reason to breathe?

I can live my life without riches, finery and gold,

But I cannot for one second, believe that your love has grown cold.

Madness, chaos, broken dreams, I can watch my mind slip down that darkened slope,

For in my heart, there’s a special feeling,

A feeling called …
