VBT–Years and an Ocean by Jo Noelle. Spotlight

14 Apr

Years and an OceanBlog Tour Schedule


Years and an Ocean by Jo Noelle

Going to a séance was supposed to be a harmless diversion in Victorian England, but for Delia Spencer, it was life altering. Since that day, she has been plagued by fainting spells, while her consciousness visits Elle Thomas more than a century in the future. In modern-day New York, Elle has kept secret the dream-like memories of Delia’s life. As the visits have become more frequent, Elle is confused about what is her life and what is not. Back in England, Delia’s father is determined to marry her off to any marginally suitable man before her illness becomes known to society. But will Delia consent, now that she’s had a taste of Elle’s independence?

Praise for Years and an Ocean

I enjoyed this fresh take on characters that connect over differing time periods. The characters were rich and interesting, and I loved the historical aspect with the modern. Clean romance is a bonus. The light fantasy elements bordered on paranormal, but never got out of the realm of plausibility. Good writing and a story I can recommend. ~Renae Mackley

This book was not at all predictable, which I love! Just when I thought I had the ending figured out, Jo Noelle took me for a ride. ~Stacy Carroll

Excerpt Born In Sin @ Second Book to the Right

29 May

Today I’m really happy for two reasons: one it’s Wednesday. Which means I’m only one day away from the release of my historical romance BORN IN SIN (Dacian Legends, book #2). Secondly, Kris invited me over @ her blog Second Book to the Right for an excerpt from BORN IN SIN. Grab your coffee (or glass of wine; after all there must be 5 o’clock somewhere) and join us for a glimpse at fearless Zyraxes and shy Oriana.


What are you waiting for?

Last Days Of Freedom Giveaway Hop

16 Aug

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m. Tired. Of. The. Heat. What should I do? Well, I can’t move to another state, can’t always eat ice cream and I can’t keep my head in the freezer either. Instead I hide in my room with a bunch of books. Some of them are really good and worth reading. Part of my TBR pile are two novels by Tiffany A. Snow titled No Turning Back and Turn To Me. There are glowing reviews for both of them on Amazon and GoodReads.

And since Kathy @ I’m A Reader Not A Writer and Jessi @ The Elliott Review organized another incredible giveaway hop called Last Days Of Freedom Giveaway Hop I decided to reward my readers with e-copies of both books.  This hop runs between 07/17 and 07/22 with the winner announcement on 07/23.

For your chance to win one of the books above all you have to do is FOLLOW THIS BLOG BY EMAIL by clicking on the button to the right called “Sign me up!” (atop all images) and leave your answer to the question: WHAT BOOK DID YOU READ THIS SUMMER AND ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT?

Young Adult Giveaway Hop

7 Aug

It’s middle of the week and here we are with another giveaway once again organized by the restless Kathy @ I’m A Reader Not A Writer, this time helped the Reading Teen. Thank you, everyone! Young Adult  Giveaway Hop runs between 08/08 and 08/14 with the winner announcement on 08/15.

I could give away a few books I read this year, but I decide against it because they are my favorite, but they might not be liked by teens. So, how about instead of books I mix it up a bit with a $10.oo kindle gift card. This way whoever wins it, has the chance to buy whatever books they want. Sounds good?

For your chance to win this gift card all you have to do is FOLLOW THIS BLOG BY EMAIL by clicking on the button to the right called “Sign me up!” (atop all images) 

Have fun!

Lazy Days of Summer Giveaway Hop

26 Jul

Don’t know how your summer is so far but mine is … scortching. I live in Arizona and this year we’ve been “blessed” with a very early spring, yielding even earlier to summer (like it was in a hurry to come and melt us, seriously). 

So, for the Lazy Days of Summer Giveaway Hop organized by Kathy @ I’m A Reader Not A Writer helped by Laura @ Colorimetry, I decided to give away a $10.00 Haagen Dasz gift card (don’t bother telling me about calories; we’ll talk about them in a different post, ok?) The giveaway runs between 07/27 – 08/01 with the winner announcement  on 08/02.

For your chance to win all you have to do is like me on FB and leave your answer to the question:

Which Haagen Dasz ice cream flavor is your favorite? Mine is vanilla swiss almond and it’s to DIE for.

Good luck everyone!
