Blurb for AN HEIRESS AT HEART, by Jennifer Delamere

 

A youthful indiscretion has cost Lizzie Poole more than just her honor. After five years living in exile, she’s finally returning home, but she’s still living a secret life. Her best friend Ria’s dying wish was for Lizzie to assume her identity, return to London, and make amends that Ria herself would never live to make. Bearing a striking resemblance to her friend, and harboring more secrets than ever before, Lizzie embarks on a journey that tempts her reckless heart once again…

A committed clergyman, Geoffrey Somerville’s world is upended when he suddenly inherits the title of Lord Somerville. Now he’s invited to every ball and sought after by the matchmaking mothers of London society. Yet the only woman to capture his heart is the one he cannot have: his brother’s young widow, Ria. Duty demands he deny his feelings, but his heart longs for the mysterious beauty. With both their futures at stake, will Lizzie be able to keep up her façade? Or will she find the strength to share her secret and put her faith in true love?

Blurb for Dead Wrong by Susan Sleeman:

A KILLER’S CLOSING IN…

When her client and old college friend is murdered, P.I. Kat Justice knows the killer will come for her next. Her survival depends on finding her unknown enemy first…and working with homicide detective Mitch Elliot, her onetime crush.

It’ll take all her professional skills to ignore the sparks between them, but Kat can’t allow the handsome cop to get close. She’s seen too many people she loves die, so she vows just to do her job without getting emotionally involved. Yet keeping her distance may not be the best way to protect her heart—or their lives.

Bio for Gail Sattler:

Gail Sattler lives in Vancouver BC where you don’t have to shovel rain, with her husband, three sons, two dogs, and a lizard, who is quite cuddly for a reptile. When she’s not busy writing, Gail is an active musician playing piano for the worship team at her church, electric bass for a local jazz band, and upright acoustic bass for a community orchestra. When she’s not reading, Gail loves to sit back with a hot coffee and a good book written by someone else. Please visit Gail’s website at www.gailsattler.com

Blurb for Take the Trophy and Run by Gail Sattler:

Like Mitford and Lake Wobegon before that, Bloomfield is a place we could all call home. Here, the residents enjoy a splash fountain in the town square, dine at the “Fancy Schmantsy” on tree-lined Main Street, and dream of reaching the 10,000 population mark — only 22 more folks to go!

The Bloomfield Garden Club, an all-ages group of lovable oddballs that will stop at nothing to make everything beautiful, maintains this piece of heaven on earth. But even such idyllic places as this have their share of
dramatic characters and stories to be told.

Take, for instance, craft store owner Amber Weathersby. She wants to be a member of the garden club but has never received the blessing of a green thumb. Her friend, Stan the mechanic, has helped as much as he can — even adding a timed sprinkler system to Amber’s garden — but the results never live up to the club’s expectations.

Her only claim to fame with that gang is her semi-famous garden gnome, Gnorman, who gets to hold the prized trophy each year in the Bloomfield Spring Fling contest’s winning garden.

But this year, instead of being the life of the party, her little star is gnomegnapped, and worse, the club’s irreplaceable trophy has gone missing with him. While Amber is chasing the gnome around town trying to win the trophy, Stan is chasing Amber, trying to win her heart.

 
Bio for M.K Gilroy:
 
M. K. GILROY has helped create hundreds of projects and launch dozens of authors, working in every area of the publishing industry from his first job as a proofreader to publisher. Gilroy’s debut novel, /Cuts Like a Knife/, quickly garnered critical acclaim and introduced one of the most unique, fresh, and compelling lead characters in Detective Kristen Conner. Gilroy resides in Brentwood, Tennessee.
 
Blurb for Every Breath You Take by M.K. Gilroy:
 
A high-profile murder tied to an online dating service has the Chicago news media buzzing. Who better to go undercover in the world of personal profiles and promising matches than an ace detective who is single . . . and as attractive as she is tough? While Detective Kristen Conner can’t figure out her own dating life, she /is/ about to get a crash course on finding true love (or at least a Friday night date) even as she becomes the object of a killer’s affections.
