The Pirate's Jewel
by Ruth A. Casie | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for THE PIRATE'S JEWEL?

Have you ever read a book with secondary characters that scream for a story of their own? Or better yet, characters you want to know more about. Wesley Reynolds and Darla Maxwell, the central characters of The Pirate's Jewel are the parents of Lisbeth Reynolds, the heroine in my story, The Guardian's Witch. They have a small part in the story and begged for one of their own.

Q: I understand it's set in the world of the series Pirates of Britannia. What's...

HEADLINES

Practising For Christmas
My latest romantic comedy, Practising for Christmas, is on offer for just 99p/99cents for the next two weeks! Perfect holiday reading.
Wolf's Challenge
Things aren't always as they seem in the town of Great Oaks, Virginia. Derrick isn't the ladies' man Sydney thinks he is, but he does have a few secrets. Can he convince her to give him a chance? Something more than her elusive maybe? Will Sydney and Derrick find their happily-ever-after or will the unhinged woman stalking them destroy their chance?
Apocalyptic Moon, Book 1 In After The Bane Series
Dr. Dora Adler's life has been in disarray since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, but when she gets bitten by one of the undead, her whole world is turned upside down. Held captive in a secret underground lab, the tall, muscular hunk in the next cell is her only hope for salvation. Unfortunately, he claims to be a werewolf. Yeah, and she's supposedly a witch. Dirk Gunderson is an alpha Arbor pack werewolf. Captured and collared, he's sold to the zombie lab in hopes his blood serum can create a vaccine. He needs to escape, but not without the hot little brunette witch. In the midst of enemy werewolves and the hordes of undead, Dirk and Dora's sexual tension ignites a blaze hotter than the desert highway. Along their journey, they battle the inevitable: a werewolf must never take a witch as a mate.
The Sheikh Doc's Marriage Bargain
From shy Cinderella… To convenient princess! For sensible Dr. Laurel Martin, heading up a new lab for royal doc Sheikh Tariq Al Marktum is the chance to conduct the study of a lifetime. But to protect Laurel from the scandal her presence in his palace will cause, Tariq has his own condition—a paper marriage! Swept into his desert kingdom, passion overtakes the convenient couple, but can Laurel find her place in Tariq's world—and his heart?

Colton on the Run
| Romantic Suspense/Mystery

COLTON ON THE RUN (Coltons of Roaring Springs Book 9) by Anna J. Stewart is a new Harlequin Romantic Suspense that I could not stop reading. Ms. Stuart had me completely engrossed in Skye Colton's story and the strong rancher who will do anything to protect...

4.5 stars Six years ago, Emily Howard was being courted by Lord Langdon, and was expecting a marriage proposal. When Emily's overbearing mother became impatient, and confronted Langdon about his intentions, she only succeeded in scaring him off. He...

Wolf Instinct
| Contemporary Romance

This far down the series, you'd be hard-pressed to wonder what Paige Tyler has up her sleeve when it comes to expanding (slowly but surely) the SWAT universe. The holding pattern is admittedly still there: each books typically features a SWAT werewolf's...

Say You Still Love Me
| Contemporary Romance

The rich girl--entitled and privileged and knows it while walking the fine line between being smug and modest about her status--with a guy on the wrong side of the tracks come together during a fateful summer camp? It sounds partway like Grease with a...

The Art of French Kissing
| Contemporary Romance

The blurb got me interested--two rival teens in a cooking competition? Sounds fun. The banter between Carter and Reid certainly was, the mean tricks they played on each other certainly typical of immature teens, and it was interesting to read about a...

Arctic Wild
| LGBTQ

ARCTIC WILD is the second book in the Frozen Hearts series, and I am happy to report that Griffin and River make a cameo appearance. This book is all about Reuben and Toby though. Reuben goes on the trip initially to prove to his friend that he will,...

Top Secret
| LGBTQ

In a rivals-to-lovers frat house story, Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen head straight into M/M territory after Him and Us (one of my first few and most memorable stories) once again and I'd be lying to say that I wasn't excited about this rushed announcement...

Kings Rising
| LGBTQ

KINGS RISING left my head spinning and it is a thrilling conclusion to the series really, as C.S Pacat pushes the envelope with court machinations, battle strategies (on and off field). Or rather, it's akin to following a game of chess as the pieces are...

Saved Between the Sheets
| Erotic Romance

SAVED BETWEEN THE SHEETS is a collection of stories, all revolving around the world of Superheroes. Some are 'for real', whilst others aren't--one involves a costume of someone going to a KinkCon. Whether it is Reverse Harem, or BDSM, or just plain...

Captive Prince
| LGBTQ

When I finally got my claws embedded in CAPTIVE PRINCE, I hadn't expected that it would have taken me a few years to read after C.S. Pacat's name spread like wildfire. But better late than never and as good books are, they reel you in, sink deep into...

A Chip and a Chair

The final instalment of the Seven of Spades series remain as full of action and love as its companions. It was an absolute thrill. High on action and mystery, it was a perfect final chapter for this amazing series. While Levi and Dominic are trying...

Red, White & Royal Blue
| LGBTQ

RED, WHITE AND ROYAL BLUE is an indulgent afternoon fix, really, but so unique in its application of the British royals and American 'royalty' in romantic fiction. Enemies-to-lovers, diversity in politics (or diversity full-stop), bisexuality, blended-families...

The Alpha Wolf's Mate
| Erotic Romance

THE ALPHA WOLF'S MATE appears to be a standalone, although it could quite easily be turned into a series, as there are a number of characters I want to hear more about. Serena is heading towards her new job when her car breaks down... at night... on...

Reverb
| LGBTQ

I think Anna Zabo goes where not many mainstream authors tread, where sexuality (and what it means) is put to the forefront of the Twisted Wishes series. REVERB on the surface might seem like an M/F book as opposed to the first to M/M ones, but I've always...

The Serpent's Kiss
| LGBTQ

THE SERPENT'S KISS is the seventh book in the Scandalous Seductions series, although I haven't read any of the previous books. Bella is going back home, accompanied by Lord Pennerly, to be a godmother for her deceased friend's daughter. Lucerne, a...

Good With His Hands
| Erotic Romance

GOOD WITH HIS HANDS is a quick read, centering around an unexpected encounter in the wilderness. The story is charming with likeable characters and a cute, sexy storyline.

Overture
| Erotic Romance

Skye Warren's daring forbidden themes have been my catnip for a while and I jumped on OVERTURE for this very reason. A warning caveat about the edginess of this story: Ms. Warren respects the consensual age limit, though the age-gap between guardian and...

A Werewolf State of Mind
| Erotic Romance

A psychiatrist and a patient that are more than you can see. A WEREWOLF STATE OF MIND has delightful characters with great interaction. I enjoyed this story. The characters' openness and romantic development were well delivered, leaving me wanting...
