Me Tarzan, You Jane by Camelia Miron Skiba

Moving on doesn’t always have to mean goodbye.

Widowed makeup artist Jane Sullivan is more comfortable keeping her husband’s memory alive than dating a pool full of sharks. Ella, her 4 year-old daughter, is her whole world.

When Jane meets Lucas Oliver, famous cover model, it’s hate at first sight. His playboy persona rubs her the wrong way.

Accustomed to every woman fawning over him, Lucas is drawn to the shy, uncompromising single mom and completely melts at the sight of Ella. He is determined to convince Jane that sometimes a second chance can mend a broken heart.

Grab your copy for just 99 cents!

Fun book. When it first started out, I was afraid it was going to be shallow (lots of references to hot guys, etc) but it turned out to be a thoughtful story with likable characters. I look forward to reading more from this author. ~ Author Karey White 

Great story! Loved Jane’s strength, and learning the layers of “Tarzan.” This is a great story about moving on after a tragedy and learning to trust again! ~ Author Sherry Gammon

I adored this book. The characters were so alive for me that I was actually sad when the book ended. I wanted more. Maybe the author will be kind enough to write about each of the male models mentioned here … If your looking for a heartfelt story this is the book for you. ~Solmarie



I’m a dreamer
I’m a sinner
I love my books
I conjure hooks
And heroes with good looks

Romance is my guilty pleasure
Taking me to places with new decor
Come join me if you dare
I promise not to bore

If you like to read my stories
Pray my husband continues snorin’
For he’s the one who keeps me up at night
When I give my heroes wings and flight.

Addicted. Taking a rain check on curing myself, thank you very much.

14 Dec

Existential questions have always been on my mind: why am I here? What’s the purpose of life, my life? What am I supposed to do?

Most of these questions remain so far unanswered while I grow … wiser one day at the time. But I do try to live my life in a way that it has purpose. I take each day as a brand new chance at something to create, something to leave behind so when I’m long gone people will remember me.

Several years ago, while on yet another quest to figure out who I was, I began writing. Doubting every word I wrote and myself a story took form. The more I wrote the more this fountain of creative juices rose inside me and before I knew what’s happening, I became addicted. My debut novel titled Hidden Heart was published in March of 2011. Since then three other novels spread their wings for the world to read them: A World Apart, Born In Vengeance and Born In Sin. Me Tarzan—You Jane is my latest novel out on December, 6th 2014. Several other stories are in process of being developed / edited / finished.

From an early age we learn that addictions are bad: drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gambling—you name it. I’ve long acknowledged that writing is my addiction. But I’ll be damn if I ever try to rid myself of it. No rehab, no treatment, no therapist or counselor would ever convince me this addiction is bad. You know why? Because unlike all other addictions writing nourishes my heart and soul. Writing gives me purpose, part of me as my very heart and, “until my moment comes / I’ll say… I, I did it all…”~ I lived by One Republic.

5-star review? I take it. Spotlight? Right up my alley.

I’m beyond excited with how much TLC my upcoming New Adult contemporary romance Me Tarzan–You Jane is receiving already.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00002]

In preparation for its release (12/06/14; available for pre-order on Amazon now) several readers have agreed to review it and post their review on Goodreads.

Among those readers Solmarie rates Me Tarzan–You Jane  a 5-star novel. She says: “I adored this book. The characters were so alive for me that I was actually sad when the book ended. I wanted more. Maybe the author will be kind enough to write about each of the male models mentioned here (HINT HINT) :)”

Thank you, Solmarie, for the kind words. 

Others agreed to feature the novel on their blogs, like Lisa and Sarah @ Girls With Books (their site is a great place to pick your next book based on their reviews or enter giveaways with tons of prizes). Hop over and see what they have to offer.

Happy Friday!


Review–THE COMPANION by Susan Squires

4 Sep

I rarely post reviews and when I do it it’s because the book is really deserving. Today I give you THE COMPANION by Susan Squires.


I had the pleasure of meeting Susan during the Arizona Dreamin’ Romance Reader Event end of May. We clicked instantly, having tremendous fun talking writing, publishing and the likes.

When I travelled to California last month, I met Susan for a cup of coffee and three hours later we still had so much to talk about. She gifted me two books, one of them being THE COMPANION. If I were to describe the novel using one word and one word only it must be: hooking. I enjoyed the book so much so that I decided to post a review which went live on Goodreads and Amazon already and B&N soon, but for now here it is in all its splendor.

For those of you curious about the person behind the novel, I’m happy to inform you that Susan will be my guest next week with an interview. At that point I’ll have a giveaway going along with the interview. More to come. Until then enjoy my take on THE COMPANION.

My review:

For as long as I remember I didn’t care much for vampires. Maybe because I grew up with them in the land of Dracula (for real). Maybe because a certain vampire totally blew it for me using his superpowers to stalk/watch/control his GF.

All of that changed when I began reading The Companion by Susan Squires and was introduced to Ian Rufford. Oh my! The more I read the more I wanted to find out about him. Tortured and damaged yet strong and with a sense of dignity, Ian managed to redeem for me the entire world of vampires and for that I’m deeply grateful to Susan Squires.
I found Elizabeth Rochewell, the heroine really easy to relate to: uncomplicated, realistic, she won me over with her unassuming nature. Life hasn’t always been easy for her but she doesn’t complain nor expects people to feel sorry for her.
Events bring Ian and Elizabeth in the same place at the same time and, as much as they try to resist being in each other’s company, there is only so much space one can hide on a ship. When things begin to go wrong at every turn, Ian loses control and does something he can help but loathe himself for.
There’s much more to the story than their relationship: there’s mystery, complications, surprises and a fast pace that keeps you on your toes, reading one page after another and as soon as you think you have it figured it out, there it comes: the bomb.
I applaud Susan Squires’ ability to create fascinating characters, intricate storyline and great pacing.

Needless to say Susan Squires’ portraying of vampires during the regency left me curious and yearning for more, so much so that the entire series (6 novels to be exact) are now in my library, waiting for me to discover their treasures.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
