A Bouquet of Books, plus New Romance and Fantasy, and ROW80

First, a couple of WANA Wednesday new releases this week I’m excited about!

thenunandthenarcLast week, Catherine Castle, one of my Ohio Valley RWA friends, released her debut novel, an inspirational romantic suspense.  The Nun and the Narc is the story of novice Sister Margaret Mary, and where she goes, trouble follows. When she barges into a drug deal the local Mexican drug lord captures her. To escape she must depend on undercover DEA agent Jed Bond. Jed’s attitude toward her is exasperating, but when she finds herself inexplicable attracted to him he becomes more dangerous than the men who have captured them, because he is making her doubt her decision to take her final vows. Escape back to the nunnery is imperative, but life at the convent, if she can still take her final vows, will never be the same.

Nuns shouldn’t look, talk, act, or kiss like Sister Margaret Mary O’Connor—at least that’s what Jed Bond thinks. She hampers his escape plans with her compulsiveness and compassion and in the process makes Jed question his own beliefs. After years of walling up his emotions in an attempt to become the best agent possible, Sister Margaret is crumbling Jed’s defenses and opening his heart. To lure her away from the church would be unforgivable—to lose her unbearable.

I’m reading this book right now, and really enjoying it! For more info, see Catherine’s website/blog.


IronLocket

Samantha Warren has a new romantic fantasy out, too. The Iron Locket is the story of Aiofe Callaghan, who comes from a long line of faery hunters. Hired by one of the faery queens, they protect the human world from chaos and destruction. But when Aiofe stumbles through an open door into the land of Faery, she discovers the job isn’t as simple as it seems, and neither is she.

Arthur Pendragon spent centuries in blissful nothingness, until the day the four queens banded together to raise him from the dead. Along with his twelve most talented knights, he leads the warring armies of Faery against the greatest enemy they have ever known: one of their own. Can they overcome their differences to confront the greatest challenges either of them have ever faced? More info and buy links on Samantha’s website/blog.

Quick ROW80 update: ROW80 is going well so far! I’ve finished my short story, although of course I had to think of a good change to make  3/4 of the way through that will involve more work. But the draft is finished! I also got two activity sessions in, if washing the car counts – I think it should, don’t you? Finally, I got half of the brochure design done, and my relative really likes it! So a good start this week.

  1. Jennette, thanks for spotlighting my book today. What fun it was to open your blog email this morning and find my name right there. Hope you enjoy The Nun and the Narc.

  2. Awesome deal for your books, Jennette. My note to others: I’ve read Times Enemy, Times Fugitive, and Hangar 18 and cant say enough wonderful things about them. What a deal. Grab em while you can!

    Thanks for featuring these other books, too, Jennette. I went to Samantha’s launch party, so I knew about her book. (Congrats again, Samantha!) Now, your friend’s book about the nun and the DEA agent, well, that sounds scrumptious! 🙂

  3. Marcy, I always like to share about fun new books! Hope you find something you like!

    Pat, thanks for buying Hangar 18! I hope you enjoy it!

  4. Thank you for highlighting TIME’S ENEMY on sale. I can’t wait to read it. Im here from ROW80 and will happily check in again.

  5. Hi, Jennette. I just bought Hangar 18 at the buffet. Couldn’t resist, literally couldn’t, once I noticed that your cover includes the same model as my The Trial of Tompa Lee, on the same Fantasy/SF page. This must mean we’re psychically linked, maybe through your USAF psychics!

  6. LOL Ed – I noticed too! That woman must have a “worried about aliens” look about her. 😀 I’m planning to check out a bunch of books on the buffet – yours sounds good. I hope you enjoy Hangar 18!

  7. Thanks for highlighting awesome new books. The Nun & the Narc sounded so interesting that I bought it right away. Congrats for finishing your short story. And car wash definately counts as excercise 🙂

  8. Hi Jennette! You sound busy! Thank you for introducing us to these other authors. Catherine’s new book sounds great. I like that kind of read. So I think I’ll nab it. You’re doing fabulous work Jennette. I did see your daughters dress by the way. Beautiful! It’s been a good week for you. Oh, and I love the background of your web-page. You may have changed it a while ago, but I’m always slow on the uptake. lol. Take care girl, see ya soon! 🙂
