A Story A Day Challenge: At Peace

At Peace

Sheila rested her head against his shoulder, sending a wave of relaxation through Doug as they moved in rhythm to the soft music.

He wasn’t sure, but he expected his reaction to be totally different. He’d been on a dozen dates in the three years since his divorce was final, but she was the first woman he felt truly comfortable with. That had to be the reason he was dancing. He’d always hated doing it before.

It was one of the many things his ex-wife listed as “irreconcilable differences”. Oh well. Let her find her own happiness. He had his.

A Story A Day Challenge: Best Place

Best Place

Suzanne tightened her grip on Juan’s hand. She couldn’t imagine a better moment than the one they were having. What else could be as peaceful as laying on a hill and watching the clouds overhead.

Sure, it wasn’t the typical “perfect” date, but who cares? This was their moment and no one else’s. Let her friends have their romance books. She’d take this over any tawdry romance any day.

“So…” Her voice trailed off as she smiled at a passing cloud and the spell it cast over her. “What are you thinking?”

A gentle snore answered her.

It’s still perfect.

A Story A Day Challenge: No Pressure

No Pressure

Okay, all I have to do is not drop the ring and screw this up. I can do this. I know I can.

Would look at her? She’s so beautiful. How’d I ever get so lucky?

Come on, Father Harris, would you finish up already? My stomach’s doing flip-flops here!

Look at her, you idiot! It’ll help you relax.

I love that smile. Her gown fits her so perfectly and hides her bump.

Her bump.

Oh shit! Wonder if her dad noticed?

For the love of God! Hurry, man! I’m going to lose my lunch if we don’t finish soon.

Trembling Souls is here…

I can’t believe I’m saying that! When I wrote the first word of Stains on the Soul, I had no idea that it would end up being a trilogy or that I’d be working with the awesome PWP team to get it out to you. So, can’t start this off without a huge thanks to all of them– not to mention CP and Michelle for pushing me to finish and submit to begin with. :)

If you like what you see below, head on over to Amazon and one-click it! It’s also on Smashwords, or you can add it on Goodreads.

In the Books featuring Elemental Rancor: A Chronicle of Consequence by Charles Lominec

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Elemental Rancor: A Chronicle of Consequence by Charles Lominec.

Disclaimer: I received a free ebook copy in exchange for an honest review

About the Book: A far away star supernovas and sends waves of force and change rippling through the cosmos. The waves crash into Sarnen Karnea’s world and thrust him into a deadly struggle to keep his loved ones from harm and to keep a secret about his son from the Zangava Empire.

Elemental RancorThe waves awaken new and old forms of consciousness, and stir ancient primordial resentments, that threaten to destabilize the Empire’s dominance in the world. Challengers from across the ocean, and from under it, seek to capitalize on newly developing Imperial problems.

Like the Empire, Sarnen must adapt to survive, and must ask himself which of his virtues he is willing to deny in order to reach his goals.

My review: This was one of those books that took me a little bit to get into, but that was due more to the different nature of the world setting than I’m accustomed to. I thought it was a cool contrast to usual fantasy novels with the Empire using dinosaurs as weapons for land and air. It gave the story an extra depth as we’re exposed to the different Elementals such as Flesh, Air, Fire, and Earth.

The characters were well written and enjoyable, except for a couple that I really wanted to see have an incident, but that’s part of what made the story so enjoyable. My personal favorite was the Lanx as a whole, so needless to say I’m curious what they’ll be up to in the next book.

The story moved along at a good pace and kept me turning the pages to see how the various storylines worked out. Unfortunately, that means waiting for the next book, but it’s a wait I don’t mind.

A Story A Day Challenge: Midnight Swim

Midnight Swim

Few things relaxed Dave as much as taking a dip I the neighborhood stream after dark. Having his girlfriend along didn’t hurt, either.

Tammy splashed him with a small wave of water then giggled when he lunged for her and missed.

“You know you’re going to pay for that.”

“Do I look worried?” She slowly backstroked away, kicking some water at him.

Laughing he dove under the water and came up under her. Her squeal was music to his ears. After slapping his chest, she allowed him to pull her close for a kiss.

Things couldn’t be any more perfect.
