Title: Let Love Find You
Author: Johanna Lindsey
Genre: Historical Romance
Regency Period
Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs
Review Rating: Five Stars

     Lady Amanda Locke, daughter of Preston Locke the 10th Duke of Norford is in her third season on the marriage mart. She truly saw no hope her first season because of Ophelia Reid's beauty. It was clear that the men had eyes only for her. 
    It was her second season when her brother married Ophelia and they told her to have fun so that was over before she knew it.   
   Now, it was her third season and she was determined not to be an old maid. Her family was ready to help her too, even to hiring a Mr. Cupid to help find her perfect match.
     Devin Baldwin is Cupid. He runs a horse farm for his aunt and uncle and started a new farm for race horses close to London. He picked up extra money and customers making matches for the marriage minded youngsters. He knows he can never be like the young aristocrats that he joins because he is a bastard, though they don't know it. His mother sent him away to her brother's horse farm when he was eight and he vows to never let himself love another woman. He has the talent for reading people though, makes excellent matches, and grows in fame for it, thus the name, Cupid.
     When Amanda meets Devin, he is so rude to her that she takes an instant dislike for him, so when her sister-in-law Ophelia hires him for her Cupid she is livid.  Every time they talk, he insults her again. It seems there is no way that Amanda can hate him more when she realizes she needs him to teach her to ride, so she can win the man of her dreams. Amanda had a tragic accident when learning to ride as a child of eight. She has a fear of horses as a result. Her new beau is an avid horseman and would not want a woman that can't ride, so Amanda determines she will ride with Devin's help.
   This story is so sweet and interesting. I love this type of Regency romance and this one is just my cup of tea. Johanna Lindsey never let's me down and this story is no exception. You can feel the tension building each time the star crossed lovers meet. It's delightful how Amanda keeps meeting hopeful husbands with Devin's help.
     I loved all the characters from her wonderful father, Preston to Devlin's friend, William Pace, and the incomparable Ophelia.
     I had no problem giving Five Stars to Johanna's lovely story and await with my mouth watering for more of her genius.

Title: No Gentleman is He
Authors: Carley Bauer and Lynette Willows
Genre: Historical Fiction Romance
Review Rating: Four Stars
Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs
Exciting and Entertaining

     Cassandra Courtney Brooks is an Aristocratic English Lady, who eloped with Seth Brooks, a stable hand  into the new American colonies. Shortly upon their arrival in 1775 Virginia, Seth dies. To survive Cassandra works at a tavern where she can also stable the horses they were breeding before Seth's death. She was a very exceptional woman for that time period to be surviving alone especially for a gently bred lady.
 Casey is also a determined woman with exceptional horse flesh and breeding plans. A mare of hers is folding and in danger of dying.  She confides her problem while waiting on two customers. These two customers, Jackson Lee and Colton Rolfe offer to help her mare fold.
     Colton Rolfe is a man of infinite passions. He is part Native American and treated poorly by his father and stepmother after his mom died. Despite this life that hardened Colton he is a determined horse breeder and rich man as the owner of Varina Farms. He sees the superior horse flesh in Cassandra's horse while helping the birth of her colt. He covets her horse and already feels a desire for Cassandra.
     Jackson Lee, a close friend and competitor of Colton, owns another horse ranch but has more refined horses. He also recognizes Cassandra's exceptional horse flesh. He witnesses that Colton and Cassandra are already drawn to each other.  He thinks it grand for he worried his friend would never find anyone to manage his terrible temper and rudeness.
     Colton offers Cassandra a position on his ranch as steward and housekeeper. It is a grand place for her horses that he plans to keep. He thinks she will fail, give up and leave her horses with him when she returns to England. He doesn't realize what a remarkable woman she is.
     Cassandra surprises everyone with her intelligence, strength and integrity. She is stubborn and determined. She finds abuses by his past steward and saves Colton money and horses.
    The American revolution is getting underway. Jackson and Colton were discussing new intelligence. Their plans were overheard by Cassandra so they fear her an English spy. They take her with them to Concord. Along the way Colton falls more and more in love with Cassandra.
    It is a love hate relationship with a fire so intense you can feel the heat of it coming off the page. I was very impressed by the weave of history in this most erotic love story. The first battle with the British was accurate and so interesting you felt the urgency. 
    The characters were in four dimensions. You could feel the pull between the main characters and you felt for their problems. 
Their personalities were firmly set in your mind and you flowed with them through their troubles. 
     I really enjoyed this historical fiction and the romance between Colton and Cassandra that's was so  heated and erotic. It fairly sizzled. I gave it Four Stars with an A plus on the side.
    Just a note to the authors, I had a little problem with historical accuracy. I think the Waltz was not done in America until around 1812 to 1815 when it was introduced to Regency England and Almacks.
       Also the wilderness of Virginia was referred to as 'The Bush' on one occasion. I believe that term is from Australia and not used in America. The wilderness is simply, the forest, wilds or wilderness.  I have never heard that used in North America. 
     The rest of the history involved in the book is very accurate and so interesting I felt compelled to tell of those two inaccuracies in hopes that they could be corrected. That was not intended to say that I didn't totally and happily enjoy this wonderful book. I highly recommend this wonderful tale and applaud both authors for their hard  and ingenious work. I look forward to more in the future.

Title: Scandal's Heiress Author: Amelia Smith Genre: Romantic Historical Fiction Review Rating: Five Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs Romantic and Endearing Sir Thomas Smithson Pently returns home to England from India to reluctantly assume his position in society after his brother's death. His father is on his deathbed too and the situation is dire. Thomas left over ten years ago with bad blood between them. The only reason he decides to heed the call home is the recent death of his love. Hyacinth Grey lives in Gibraltar with her widowed father, Captain Grey and her brother, George. She takes on the roll of mother and governess to George. George is actually illegitimate but Hyacinth doesn't care. Her father gets word that Hyacinth inherited all if her improper grandmother's properties and assets. He wants his daughter to have a proper introduction to society. His sister, Lady Talbot lives in London and will see to her nieces presentation so he decides to send her to London. He decides his son can go to a school there too. Maria, Hyacinth's maid will be their chaperone. Thomas and Hyacinth are sent on the same ship. Her father cant accompany her and he warns her away from Thomas but the trip takes longer than anticipated and they are thrown into each other's company. She is determined to not like him but she finds herself indebted to him and drawn to him. It was such a romantic and inspiring story. You really feel like you know these two characters before the book ends. They become very real and alive to you and you are so hopeful for their futures. I could not put the book down after a few pages, as I was hooked. The descriptions were breath taking at times like when Thomas dives into the water after George. The waves were frightening in a fierce storm at sea but swimming in them was almost impossible. Thomas and George were in horrendous danger and you felt it. I am a Regency nut and I love all things of this period and these two characters are now on my list. I truly loved them. I give this superb story Five Stars and wish I could give it Six. It is excellent. I recommend it to all who want good clean Regency. Thank you Amelia. Linda Hays-Gibbs

Title: The Viscount's Vow Author: Collette Cameron Genre: Historical Erotic Romance Review Rating: Five Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs Sizzling Romantic Fantasy Ian Warrick, the new Viscount Warrick has just lost his father, Roger and brother, Geoff and the woman to blame is, a harlot in London enjoying the season with balls and entertainments. He sets out with a plan instigated by his stepmother, Lucinda and sister, Charlotte for vengeance. He decides he will ruin this woman in the eyes of the ton. This is his vow and his anger is set. He finds her with a cluster of men, who all call her a strumpet or worse behind her back while begging for her favors. He asks her to dance after a quick introduction from his Aunt Edith. He finds on closer inspection that she is truly very beautiful and enticing to hold and wavers a little in his determination. Evangeline Caruthers or Vangie is finding her debut exciting; except she keeps getting improper proposals. She has no idea why this is happening to her but is just so grateful her Uncle Gideon took her away from Uncle Percival and Aunt Eugenia for any length of time. Aunt Adelaide and Uncle Gideon make her quite happy; while the prior make her life a misery. She never complains about any of the abuse though. While Vangie and Ion are dancing; Vangie has another headache and finds it hard to breathe her stays are so tight so she passes out in his arms on the terrace. He carries her to a retiring room trying to avoid embarrassment. Ion finds she is tuning blue and he can find no help so he loosens her stays. When finally discovered, she is in disabile and he's got his cravat off and shirt unbuttoned, so tongues start wagging. He must now marry her or see her truly ruined. He finds he does not want to ruin her, so what of his revenge and his plan? An interesting turn of events is how Vangie's Romani blood plays a part in her life. She even runs away to her relatives at one point. They are much kinder than her English ones. Such a sexy love story with all the Regency flair and bells and whistles. The characters are scrumptious and you will fall in love with them. The descriptive elements bring the page to life. Vangie has her own problems and does not need anyone to teach her lessons. She is charming with all her flaws and she shows how to bring innocence into maturity and strength with honor into quiet courage. Ian thinks he knows everything as any classic male, but he is brought low by his ignorance. It really sizzles so it's not for the feint if heart but a grand read if you want sexy romance in a regency style. I recommend it to one and all. I give it Five Stars! Linda Hays-Gibbs

Title: Married at Midnight Author: Arabella Sheraton Genre: Historical Regency Romance Review Rating: Five Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs Julian Edward George St. John Trevallon, the twelfth Earl of Pennington has an estate in need of funds but does not want to marry. He is determined to find a solution to restore Penrose and his estates that his idiot older brother, Blevin paupered by gambling before he died. He has a great uncle, Sir Oswald Barton, that left a very peculiar will. He must marry by midnight of his thirtieth birthday to inherit a fortune or remain poor. If he marries at the time specified in six months after the marriage; he inherits $250,000 pounds. It is now six days till his birthday. He is traveling when he almost runs over a dark clad figure with red hair. He stops to find a woman on the road and takes her to Pemrose to see to her injuries. The doctor informs him that she was attacked. Roxanne Chesney has just lost her father, Horace and been forced to marry a horrible nan, Edgar Doyle that tries to rape her, but she smacks him over the head and runs away. Suddenly, she finds herself in the home of Julian and he proposes that she marry him and he will give her $25,000 just until the six months are up. Then she can leave and no harm done. This is a delightful experience of regency love and the problems of a young girl in this era. It winds its way into your heart and mind. I love regency and I loved this story. The problems that Roxanne had to overcome we're extensive and the twists and turns of the story kept me turning pages and worrying over her. I could read stories like this every night. Kudos to Arabella Sheraton again for a job well done. Thank you for a wonderful read. You understood your characters personalities and gave them flesh and bones. The ending was a marvelous surprise and the other characters had you routing for them too except for, nasty Mister Doyle. This lovely tale gets Five Stars for regency elegance and heart throbbing excitement. Excitedly more of this author's books will grace my library and yours soon. Linda Hays-Gibbs

I must speak out about this! Christians are being singled out and massacred from Pakistan to Syria to the Nairobi shopping mall. Kirsten Powers on the deafening silence from U.S. pews and pulpits. facebook twitter google plus email Christians in the Middle East and Africa are being slaughtered, tortured, raped, kidnapped, beheaded, and forced to flee the birthplace of Christianity. One would think this horror might be consuming the pulpits and pews of American churches. Not so. The silence has been nearly deafening. As Egypt’s Copts have battled the worst attacks on the Christian minority since the 14th century, the bad news for Christians in the region keeps coming. On Sunday, Taliban suicide bombers killed at least 85 worshippers at All Saints’ church, which has stood since 1883 in the city of Peshawar, Pakistan. Christians were also the target of Islamic fanatics in the attack on a shopping center in Nairobi, Kenya, this week that killed more than 70 people. The Associated Press reported that the Somali Islamic militant group al-Shabab “confirmed witness accounts that gunmen separated Muslims from other people and let the Muslims go free.” The captives were asked questions about Islam. If they couldn’t answer, they were shot. Pakistanis protest against violence against Christians in Lahore on Sept. 24, 2013. (Arif Ali/AFP/Getty Images) In Syria, Christians are under attack by Islamist rebels and fear extinction if Bashar al-Assad falls. This month, rebels overran the historic Christian town of Maalula, where many of its inhabitants speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus. The AFP reported that a resident of Maalula called her fiancé’s cell and was told by member of the Free Syrian Army that they gave him a chance to convert to Islam and he refused. So they slit his throat. Nina Shea, an international human-rights lawyer and expert on religious persecution, testified in 2011 before Congress regarding the fate of Iraqi Christians, two-thirds of whom have vanished from the country. They have either been murdered or fled in fear for their lives. Said Shea: “[I]n August 2004 … five churches were bombed in Baghdad and Mosul. On a single day in July 2009, seven churches were bombed in Baghdad … The archbishop of Mosul, was kidnapped and killed in early 2008. A bus convoy of Christian students were violently assaulted. Christians … have been raped, tortured, kidnapped, beheaded, and evicted from their homes …” Lela Gilbert is the author of Saturday People, Sunday People, which details the expulsion of 850,000 Jews who fled or were forced to leave Muslim countries in the mid-20th century. The title of her book comes from an Islamist slogan, “First the Saturday People, then the Sunday People,” which means “first we kill the Jews, then we kill the Christians.” Gilbert wrote recently that her Jewish friends and neighbors in Israel “are shocked but not entirely surprised” by the attacks on Christians in the Middle East. “They are rather puzzled, however, by what appears to be a lack of anxiety, action, or advocacy on the part of Western Christians.” As they should be. It is inexplicable. American Christians are quite able to organize around issues that concern them. Yet religious persecution appears not to have grabbed their attention, despite worldwide media coverage of the atrocities against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East. It’s no surprise that Jews seem to understand the gravity of the situation the best. In December 2011, Britain’s chief rabbi, Lord Jonathan Sacks, addressed Parliament saying, “I have followed the fate of Christians in the Middle East for years, appalled at what is happening, surprised and distressed … that it is not more widely known.” “It was Martin Luther King who said, ‘In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.’ That is why I felt I could not be silent today.” Yet so many Western Christians are silent. In January, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) penned a letter to 300 Catholic and Protestant leaders complaining about their lack of engagement. “Can you, as a leader in the church, help?” he wrote. “Are you pained by these accounts of persecution? Will you use your sphere of influence to raise the profile of this issue—be it through a sermon, writing or media interview?” There have been far too few takers. Wolf and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) sponsored legislation last year to create a special envoy at the State Department to advocate for religious minorities in the Middle East and South-Central Asia. It passed in the House overwhelmingly, but died in the Senate. Imagine the difference an outcry from constituents might have made. The legislation was reintroduced in January and again passed the House easily. It now sits in the Senate. According to the office of Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), the sponsor of the bill there, there is no date set for it to be taken up. Wolf has complained loudly of the State Department’s lack of attention to religious persecution, but is anybody listening? When American leaders meet with the Saudi government, where is the public outcry demanding they confront the Saudis for fomenting hatred of Christians, Jews, and even Muslim minorities through their propagandistic tracts and textbooks? In the debate on Syria, why has the fate of Christians and other religious minorities been almost completely ignored? In his letter challenging U.S. religious leaders, Wolf quoted Lutheran pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was executed for his efforts in the Nazi resistance: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” That pretty well sums it up.
Title: Dangerous Duke Author: Arabella Sheraton Genre: Regency Romance Review Rating:Five Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs The Sixteenth Duke of Wyndlesham, Devlin Deveral, is The Dangerous Duke. He is arrogant, self-centered and bullying. He has a mistress, Penelope Vane; that is vicious and underhanded. She plans to trap the Duke into marriage with her. Fenella Preston applies for the position of companion to the Dowager Duchess. Her Aunt convinces her to use her name of Preston although her real name is Hawke. This is because her father commuted suicide. Fenella is beautiful and the Duke is extremely handsome. Every time they are alone the sparks fly. Fenella is convinced she will only be used by the Duke since her lowly social status would make it impossible for a marriage. The other problem is Penelope; who is so jealous, that she tries to hurt her in every way. Fenella wins all of the Duke's servants. Everyone loves Fenella but Fenella is no fool; despite her naïveté. She must leave and make her way somewhere else. The ending made me laugh and cry. It was delightful and I refuse to tell it all. This is a must read for Regency fans. The characters are fleshed and so convincing. The plot is very romantic and quite believable. I really enjoyed reading it. I give it Five Stars.

Linda Hays-Gibbs [ 9/14/13 03:30 ] Title: The Second Son Author: Vonnie Hughes Review Rating: Five Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs The Second Son is Regency at its best. The characters are deep and fully fleshed. I loved the disillusionment John suffers with his life. He must overcome self pity and find his own way in a hard life, as a second son that will never have what his older brother has. He grows with the story. His return home after the brutalities if war have left him scarred too. Marguerite has a handicap and must overcome her impediments and find her way too. Her struggle is palpable and unique. It is made even more terrible when John admonishes her against her self pity. It seems that their hearts have suffered enough when their attraction draws them into unchartered waters. Just when you think you have the story figured out it bursts into a different delima. It was inspiring and endearing. I must read her other books. This one was a wonderful delight I shall cherish. I gave this ingenious author five stars for a perfect regency escape. Linda Hays-Gibbs

Review: My Angel, My Light as Darkness Falls by Linda Hays-Gibbs April 18th, 2012 | Author: Marilyn MY ANGEL, MY LIGHT AS DARKNESS FALLS Linda Hays-Gibbs ISBN: 978-1615726035 (Paperback) ASIN: B00769015M (Kindle) February 2012 (Paperback) February 2012 (Kindle) Eternal Press / Damnation Books LLC Historical / Regency / Paranormal On the eve of the battle of Waterloo, Lady Pru was led out to the ballroom by her fraternal twin brother Michael David Densington White, sixth Earl of White. Even though Pru had not been formerly brought out yet, the stress of being shut up waiting for Bonaparte’s army to initiate the battle led to those waiting to let off steam, find joy and celebrate before the battle. Michael, ever protective did not like the attention Pru was getting from his friend Fearghass MacDonald, the Duke of Somerled but allowed Fearghass one dance with his sister, one dance and one stolen kiss that was enough for Fearghass to proclaim he wished to make Pru his Duchess once the battle was over. When the battle ended and Michael did not return for her, Pru could not be persuaded to leave until she found Michael and went to the battlefield, a sea of blood and carnage where she walked, stumbled and searched for her brother’s body. When found just before nightfall, she sank down and cradled her brothers body and screamed and raged throughout the night. However, a French soldier saw her and rather than flee as he should have – as the night grew colder he drew her into his arms as she finally slept – keeping Pru warm and safe from the evil that stalked the night. *** This short novella was a most unusual paranormal regency romance with vampires and ghosts. I picked this up on a whim, because of the mention of ghosts and found it to be an utterly and totally engrossing story. The title of MY ANGEL, MY LIGHT AS DARKNESS FALLS was unusual to say the least but from the first few pages I was hooked. Pru and her brother were orphaned and being twins they had a special bond – the author put that to excellent use in later showing how much love there was between the two. Describing Pru’s heartache and devastation so extreme for a young girl who had never had to fend for herself. Michael had protected and provided for her every need. Pru was delicate, dainty and so beautiful it took most peoples breath away – beautiful and pure. With this in mind the author was able to portray, how such a fragile young woman survived, with the help of a few new friends, including a devoted heart-sick French soldier; a huge protective dog; a confused ghost; and help from the great beyond as goodness versus evil in a most wonderful and provocative tale with an ending I found to be FANTASTIC. Talk about a nice twist! I don’t want to spoil the surprises of this marvelous tale by giving any more spoilers away, but the bottom line is that I was moved, emotionally and spiritually by the prose and beautiful imagery this author was able to convey. I strongly suggest and highly recommend that most readers of both historical and paranormal will find a lot to love in this beautifully rendered story.

Please pray for Egypt! The Moslem Brotherhood is burning all the churches, killing Christians and just about everything else that breathes. We need to Pray for them and beg Obama to do something and not back this genocide. We may not be able to do much but we can Pray. The Middle East is going up in flames while we paint our toenails and fluff our hair. Like Rome when Nero fiddled as is it burned. Please write articles, write congressmen, we must do something for Israel is over there too and we could be next. There must be some courage for the right thing to do but if not for morals then for the stinking oil that will stop too! There won't be any gas for your car or electricity for your hair dryer. Please pray if nothing else that the slaughter of men, women and children will stop. Please pray!

He is at every dance she attends and acts so possessive. Daniel Hunter decides on his beautiful Irish rose but there is only one problem; she hates him. He has tried everything he knows to claim her heart but she refuses him. Will Daniel suffer in vain? Will Claire become a nun or return to her home and marry an old man? Or will she fall in love in Australia? What a lovely romantic story with the Irish accents in the dialogue and the Australian or Aussy coming out in Daniel's slant. The descriptive elements are resourceful. I must say, It was totally delightful. Regretfully, I wanted more from this author. It was just a little too short but a great romantic fantasy. The dialogue was expressive and interesting. The characters stayed in their personalities and were very strong in so short a tale. I do look forward to more of this author's work. I give her Five Stars for a wonderful romantic tale. Li nda Hays-Gibbs

Oh My! By Linda Hays-Gibbs Oh My! Did you take a picture of a mountain top and post it in the clouds for me God? Or the profile of God planted in a tree? We see God in places we seldom see! Angels wings puffed out on the horizon, A smell so sweet it had to come from heaven. A sunset with blue and pink rainbows of color. A dawn that breaks golden glitter like no other. Did you whisper in the night a dream so breathtaking and sublime? To give me a glimpse of what you have in store in time. Oh hallowed halls of suspense and holiness. Where the hairs on my arm stand on end in the presence of your sustenance, As my heart races and gathers in my throat To allow me to sense, feel and your providence to note. I adore you and now in reverence bow to, My God and your infallible divinity and brilliance. I beg with tears to hold to allow Let me perceive, acknowledge, conceive, an entity, so grand, so honorable, lovable, exquisite, unattainable, that I perish in awesome wonder. When a speck I glimpse of your immutable existence and I humbly approach your world, your word, your will, In abject terror of your ire, my heart feels the awe, the chill in reverence, For my God is a roaring fire, a genius, a painter, a scientist, benevolence, an inventor, an author of all that was, is, and shall be, because he is a rock that I can stand on to see, That will not be moved, a creative heart of love, That does all he can do, for my soul and mind, So when I chance to look on what is above, what do I find? The truth, the Pascal lamb! I know the great I Am because for one moment, I am here to see in certainty His love!

Title: The Knowledge of Good and Evil Author: Micah Persell Review Rating: Four Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs Recently the Garden of Eden is discovered and beside it the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The people that discovered it are asked to eat the fruit of the trees. Jericho is an immortal because he ate of the fruit of The Tree of Life and Knowledge of Good and evil. He can tell by touch if someone is good or evil and he can't be killed. He lives with the others like himself in a lab where he is experimented on. His friend and boss is Erin and he sends Jericho after a killer. Dahlia is the killer and an immortal too. She escapes and wrecks everything to get out. Jericho follows to bring her back but in the process he is told by an anonymous voice that "She is the one." His other mate died years ago and he thought he would be alone forever since he couldn't die. Now his life has new meaning but when he touches Dahlia he is told she is evil. He is devastated but continues on his mission to bring his new mate back to the compound and her jail. She out maneuvers him at every turn and the pain of not acknowledging their attraction weighs heavy on both of them. He is about to go crazy with wanting her when he discovers her secret. He is amazed. I will not give you all the spoilers but tell you Dahlia has a good reason for running. I give this action packed sexually charged story a definite thumbs up and rate it with Four Stars. I would have given it Five, but it just ended too abruptly. I wanted more and I believe there is more. The author has a series going but make every story end without being so cliff dropping. I was left gasping for breath and searching for more pages. It's a great story though, and I'm glad I took the read. I can't wait to hear more.

Tell someone you care Read this first Leanna Harrow For my friend Scott Bodman...Society in general can be extremely cruel and uncaring... I'm posting this because I know people have been mocked, laughed at and called liars at for illnesses beyond their control...I have more than one of these illnesses as do some of my friends.... I know for a fact that some of my Facebook friends will copy, paste and share to show their support! If you will be there for me no matter how I feel, how I look or how I act...then copy and paste this in your status and ask others to do the same. I'm doing this to prove a friend wrong as they have lost hope that someone is always listening. I'm listening and I care. It's hard to explain to someone who has not suffered as we suffer, everyday of our lives. It's even harder when there is no treatment or the treatment that Big Pharama shoves down our throats has worse side effects than the illness itself. It's a daily struggle being in pain or feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside. It destroys ever aspect of your life. You become someone you don't even know. It robs you of life, love and family. It makes you wish you were never born. Smiling through the tears is sometimes the only thing we can do. Please put this as your status for at least 1 hour if you or someone you know has one of the invisible illnesses too lengthy to list... (IBS, Crohn's, PTSD, Anxiety, Arthritis, Cancer, Heart Disease, Bipolar, Depression, Diabetes, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Friedrichs's Ataxia (FA) MS, AS, ME, MG, Epilepsy, Autism, Borderline personality disorder, M.D.,D.D., Chiari Malformation, EDS, IH, IIH, PTSD, to show your support.

Why would someone get your book for free, read it, tell the whole plot and trash it and do the same to another they get for free? It seems I have an enemy or a great friend. If my books are this bad, I should quit writing and save myself and my poor readers, especialy one from free reads that are horrible. But why read them and tell the WHOLE plot? This is a mystery to me. Please someone tell me is this normal? I had to work hard to get my published books reviewed and they are all grand most five star. So I try to self publish a few just for fun. I guess that was a big mistake but its funny that I am making money on them when they aren't for free. One I offered for free on one day was downloaded 300 times. Is that bad? I just want to know if this is just deliberate trashing or if it is a real person. She hates regency but that's what I write. One is a satire and she did not understand it was supposed to be funny. Okay I'm a failure and on my birthday. I shall crawl away and lick my wounds again; as this person has ripped me open.

It's all getting to be a little much and I have tweeted my fingers off and my books still get no reviews. I do get bad o Ed for the free ones. Why is that? I am blocked from my own Pinterest page and don't know why. LinkedIn is still a mystery. So what do I do? It's a mystery. If you have any advice please let me know ASAP! Love to all? lol I have a new review to post. Title: The Count's Last Mistress Author: Bess Greenfield Review Rating: Five +Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs Genre:Historical Romantic Fantasy in Paris 1871 Passionate Sparks: an Endearing Romantic Jaunt Olivier Valencourt, the conte de Chaumenay has a letter to deliver to his dead brother's lover. He is grieving and in pain from war injuries.The problem is he finds another woman living in her house raising the son of his brother, Etienne and his lover, Claudine Ardaunt. He is convinced she is a madwoman. She does nothing but lie to him. Jeanne Delancy is using the name Jeanne Henri. She is such a close friend to Claudine that she entrusted her with the care of her young son Alex. Claudine's lover, Etienne broke her heart when he left her. She thinks this man is Claudine's lover because his name is Valencourt. She tells the stranger that Alex is her son and sends him away but she is worried he can see the boy is his because he looks so much like him. Olivier decides to follow her to see if she will lead him to Claudine. She is so beautiful that he can't control his thoughts and finds he is worried she is a low woman. He decides he needs to get Alex away from poverty and this horrible woman that frequents bars drawing pictures. She is poor and evidently selling her favors, which he would love to sample himself. He also sees he needs to ease the boy away from her gently. Olivier makes a plan to offer her employment as an artist to decorate his home. He must also see where their attraction leads. He convinces her that she can't turn down the money. Then he convinces her to bring Alex, her friend, Sylvie Barnett and her son Leo to chaperone and keep his lusts under control. The trip is a great adventure for the boys and Jeanne can't refuse the money because they were hungry. She finds that she is attracted to this rich aristocrat but she is an American hiding from her parents. They thought her crazy and wanted to institutionalize her. She is very afraid. She must keep Alex safe for Claudine's return. She still pretends to be Alex's mom so Olivier can't take him away from her care. She realizes he knows he has a better claim on the boy. She remains completely loyal to her friend throughout. Her poverty is so evident when she sees where Olivier lives that she realizes Alex might be better off with his own family, even though she loves the boy more than she cares to admit. She realizes Claudine might be dead. Alex has become her family and loves her too but misses his mom. This is such a sweet story of love and the personalities of these characters develop before your eyes. They become real to you and you do not want the story to end. They have flaws and fears but they overcome so much in a very turbulent time in France. I will not give any more of the story away but there is so much more. The supporting characters grow too so there are several stories within the story. I was amazed and hope there is another to follow this one soon. I gave the story Five Plus because it captivated me from the first page. The love scenes are so passionate and real. I also liked the fact that the hero was such a manly man. His story was just as tragic as Jeanne's but they outgrew the depression and despair to find their hopes and dreams. Great job Bess Greenfield for a story worth reading. Linda Hays-Gibbs

In many areas of our nation they need help Okla/Mo/ tornadoes Plz
Generosity and love is what they need and volunteers along with Prayer. Show you care!

     I know the Red Cross could take donations. We must stick together, as a Nation helping where it is needed. The government of this Nation was never meant to pay for everything. It can only do so much and the rest is up to us. 
    We did not start a Free nation to become socialistic and feudal like Europe. We started a country where we can do what we want with our lives without interference. How can we have that if we just take and take? We must give too. John F Kennedy said "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country?"

I think my son said it better in my previous post here but I had to add my insignificant little bit. I want to thank all the wonderful men and women who have fought to keep my wonderful country free. I love them !
To All the Soldiers
By Linda Hays-Gibbs

To all the soldiers I have ever known,
You were all good and, brave to your very bone.
No better men or women ever walked this land!
You were a kind, smart, an honorable band.
I thank you for your selfless sacrifice.
Grief and  loss to your families of your best  lives.
They missed you each and every day!
I wish there had been Another way,
One where you could have been ok.
But know I'm grateful for your fights,
That gave me my freedom's rights.
That kept this country free,
For my children's children to see.
Thank you for all you gave.
Our country you did save.
God bless you for all eternity!
God bless you from sea to shinning sea!!!
I sit and think of all of our forefathers who lived by God's word and commandments, and fled to the unknown of this shore in order to try and live by that Word, and serve Him. And of all the men who sat in that room in Pennsylvania, and developed a charter to establish our way of life and freedoms to encompass that doctrine in ways that would change through time, but would still hold true to those declarations. I know this isn't the 4th of July, but everyone has to understand WHY we have Memorial Day celebrations, and just how intertwined these two aspects truly are so connected. It is those truths, God given rights, are the reasons my grandfather was at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, and my father was in Vietnam, and everyone else in this country's relatives and forefathers fought in well known wars, and some clandestine operations that the public shall never know, and paid the ultimate price in order to ensure our beliefs, and freedoms shall never fade away. Few of us have taken the oath to protect those views, values, and truths, against enemies both foreign and domestic. And it is an oath both my fellow Marines, servicemen and woman, both hold to, to this day. At any given day, and at any given moment will gladly make that sacrifice, in order to ensure our way of life. I salute my fellow U.S.Marine Corps brothers I served with, and to all of the other branches of military that go into harms way to do great violence on our behalf to protect those who wish for peace and happiness in our families and with our friends. So, let us take a moment when you watch your children play in the water while you barbecue outside, our while you ride on the boat at the lake or river, or when you look up at the starry ski at night, think about that soldier, Marine, seaman, or airmen, that sat in a foxhole, or was behind enemy lines trying to find his way home, not knowing if he was going to live or die, just take a moment and reveal in your moment of safe fortitude, because many before us have not been so lucky. As what has been said, Freedom isn't FREE, and the price has been paid for in blood and sacrifice, for us to know, live, and prosper to come, know that someone made the Ultimate sacrifice of not knowing their sons, daughters, grandchildren, or spouse, so that you may lay your head down at night in peace....

I have a great guest today talking about audio books. Her name is Kathryn Meyer Griffith, so give a great "Hello!" to her. Here is a little about this special woman. About Kathryn Meyer Griffith... Since childhood I’ve always been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. I began writing novels at 21, over forty years ago now, and have had seventeen (ten romantic horror, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance and two murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press and Amazon Kindle Direct. I’ve been married to Russell for almost thirty-five years; have a son, James, and two grandchildren, Joshua and Caitlyn, and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois called Columbia, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have three quirky cats, ghost cat Sasha, live cats Cleo and Sasha (Too), and the five of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes. All Kathryn Meyer Griffith’s Books available at here: Egyptian Heart Audio Book now available at ACX here: Novels and short stories from Kathryn Meyer Griffith: Evil Stalks the Night (Leisure, 1984; Damnation Books, 2012) The Heart of the Rose (Leisure, 1985; Eternal Press Author’s Revised Edition 2010) Blood Forge (Leisure, 1989; Damnation Books Author’s Revised Edition, 2012) Vampire Blood (Zebra, 1991; Damnation Books Author’s Revised Edition, 2011) The Last Vampire (Zebra, 1992; Damnation Books Author’s Revised Edition 2010) You Tube Book Trailer: Witches (Zebra, 1993; Damnation Books Author’s Revised Edition 2011) The Nameless One (short story in 1993 Zebra Anthology Dark Seductions; Damnation Books Author’s Revised Edition, 2011) The Calling (Zebra, 1994; Damnation Books Author’s Revised Edition, 2011) All Things Slip Away (Avalon Books Murder Mystery, 2006…Amazon Kindle Direct ebook & paperback 2013) Egyptian Heart (The Wild Rose Press, 2007; Author’s Revised Edition, Eternal Press 2011) My self-made You Tube Book Trailer: Winter’s Journey (The Wild Rose Press, 2008; Author’s Revised Edition, Eternal Press 2011) You Tube Book Trailer address: The Ice Bridge (The Wild Rose Press, 2008; Author’s Revised Edition, Eternal Press 2011) You Tube Book Trailer: Don’t Look Back, Agnes novella & bonus short story: In This House (2008; ghostly romantic short story out; Eternal Press 2012) You Tube Book Trailer: BEFORE THE END: A Time of Demons (Damnation Books 2010) You Tube self-made Book trailer with original song The Woman in Crimson (Eternal Press 2010) You Tube Book Trailer Link: The Complete Guide to Writing Paranormal Fiction: Volume 1 (I did the Introduction) 4 Spooky Short Stories (Amazon Kindle 2012) Telling Tales of Terror (I did the chapter on Putting the Occult into your Fiction) Dinosaur Lake (from Amazon Kindle Direct 2012) Human No Longer (Amazon Kindle 2013) Scraps of Paper –Revised Author’s Edition (Avalon Books Murder Mystery, 2003; Amazon Kindle 2013) My Websites: (to see all my book trailers with original music by my singer/songwriter brother JS Meyer)!/profile.php?id=1019954486 *** My Great Audio Book Adventure By Kathryn Meyer Griffith April 18, 2013 I’ve been writing for over forty years and published for thirty of them and have never had one of my eighteen novels, two novellas or twelve short stories put into audio. Always wanted to, but was never given the chance or had even thought much about it until the last few months. Too busy writing my novels and living my busy life. You know how it is. And until recently I’d believed only a publisher could afford/decide to turn an author’s novels into audio books. Then I discovered ACX (a fairly new website company that connects audio rights holders with narrator/producers so together they can create audio books) and all that changed. I write horror, romantic horror, suspense, romantic time-travel and murder mysteries and have always been told my stories would make good movies. I use a lot of dialogue; a lot of suspense, emotion and crisp language. And horror has always been a good genre to convert into film and audio…case in point, Stephen King. But, as I said, I hadn’t thought too much about them because, well, I was never offered either. And I was busy…writing. Trying to get published. Stay published. A big enough chore in itself as all writers know. Anyway, in January 2013 I’d just spent the last three years exhaustingly rewriting and rereleasing all my fifteen older (and a few were new) novels going back to 1984 through my publishers Damnation Books/Eternal Press. The owner, Kim Richards, when she’d contracted my fourteenth and fifteenth novels, had asked me if I’d like to revise and republish my other older works. She’d discovered them on the Internet – my old Leisure and Zebra paperbacks and a few others, most out of print – and had thought it’d be great to bring them all out again. I was thrilled and quickly said yes. My earlier novels needed rewrites and new covers and most of them had never been in eBooks, which we would also put them into. So with Kim and her editors’ help we rewrote them and brought them out again between 2010 and 2012. Dawne Dominique did my amazingly stunning new covers. I’m really happy, proud, with how they turned out. After that, deciding to try something new, I self-published my sixteenth (Dinosaur Lake, a sf/horror), seventeenth (Human No Longer, a vampire story) and eighteenth (Scraps of Paper, a murder mystery) novels. An experiment still ongoing. Though Dinosaur Lake, so far, is selling extremely well and has gathered over fifty good reviews on Amazon Kindle. Then, as I was trying to decide what to do next – write a new book or take a well-deserved rest – a writer friend of mine sent me an email. “Have you heard of a website called ACX?” she asked. “They’re new. They’ll put your books out in audio. Take a look.” Hmmm. I took a look and the website, the whole concept, really excited me. You offer up your book/books/stories (if you own the audio rights) and ACX will connect you to a narrator/producer who’ll work with you to produce a first-rate audio book of your novel. But in the end, the choice is up to you. It looked easy enough. Offer on the website a four to five minute audition script, a section of your book you believe is a good sample of the book’s heart, and other details of your novel and wait until a narrator/producer makes an offer to produce it. I thought, “Well, I own total rights to my three self-published books and all the audio rights to my fifteen books with Eternal Press and Damnation Books, so I can do that.” Then I had another idea…ask my publisher if I could use their cover art. It would save me a fortune on getting new art for the audio editions. She and the cover artist agreed that if I put a disclaimer on the audio book cover referring the customers back to its publisher for the eBook and print, I could use their art on my audio books. My cover artist, because she’s a friend of mine, also said she’d reformat them to the required square 2400 x 2400 pixel size I’d need. What a deal. So generous of them. So I offered up seventeen of my novels (and one short story collection) on ACX in January 2013…and was shocked and pleasantly pleased when within a month’s time eight were accepted! Five narrators/producers quickly sent me five minute audition MP3’s through ACX for all eight. And the quality of the narrators and their voices, their professionalism, was incredible. It was so neat hearing my words come to life after so many years with only the written version. I accepted each one, though I was a little overwhelmed at knowing I’d be juggling eight audio books at once; so I spaced out the final deadlines to fall between the end of March through the end of July. With the largest books later in the summer. Together, my five producers and I set a 15 minute section deadline and the completed book deadlines. Emailed back and forth getting to know each other. My first novel written, over forty years ago now, and my only historical romance, a so-called bodice-ripper (I know, I know… a horror author writing an historical romance…but I was young and hadn’t found my genre, my voice, yet…that came with my second novel in 1984) was even narrated by a woman using an English accent. I’d almost forgotten the book was 15th century England so the narrator would have one. So I smiled when I first heard her audition. My words, my characters, came alive. As I listened, I couldn’t believe, at times, some of the things I’d written. The years had faded the memories and the words. But always, I knew they were mine. The other narrators/producers were excellent, as well. Two men and three women. Some of them are actors/actresses or voice over specialists. One woman produced audio books for the blind for many years before she came to ACX. All of them have their own in-home studios and know what they’re doing; most have many years of experience. Each has been a joy to work with. So far all have met our agreed on deadlines. All have stories of their own to tell. Over the months some of them have even become sort of email friends. They’re interesting, talented people. I’ve had so much enjoyment listening to their renderings and helping them edit the final product. I’m so please with what they’ve produced. My first audio book, my 2007 ancient-Egyptian paranormal time-travel Egyptian Heart, was finalized on March 31 and I okayed it for release. It went up for sale on ACX (which is, iTunes and on April 18 – and it is already selling well. The other audio books will follow one each month until all eight are up for sale. I still have a lot of listening to do, but it’s been fun, so I don’t mind. I’m just thrilled that my novels will be out there for people to listen to. And if I’m lucky, soon the other ten will be snatched up by producers as well and every one will eventually become ACX audio books. Well, that’s the story of my audio book adventure…so far. Stay tuned for further updates. Egyptian Heart Audio Book can be found here: Author Kathryn Meyer Griffith’s books and stories can be found here:

 Lessons for the Innocent Heart
    I am always amazed at the lack of real romance these days. I hope you understand that sex is not romance and a woman must hold herself in high regard. I know it isn't Regency England but the same rules apply.
     If you want a man to respect you, you must be as chaste and innocent as you can be and have brains. If the milk is given freely, who needs to buy, house and feed the cow? You must also understand the male species. He wants something all his own. He never likes to share or have sloppy seconds. No one will respect you if you don't respect yourself. Start fresh for each day holds a new promise of love and remember, you are a precious gem.  Hold your head up high and respect your body and yourself. Let no one take advantage of you or count you cheap. You are priceless .
