Elizabeth is excited to announce her latest audiobook release: Song of the Sword by Edward Willett, the first book in the Shards of Excalibur series, now available at Audible! Elizabeth will be narrating the other four books in the series for ACX later this year. This series has garnered some stellar reviews – check out the Audible page, or visit the author’s website to read them.
Ariane’s life is complicated. Her mother suddenly disappeared two and a half years ago, she’s trying to get used to living with her aunt after bouncing around a series of foster homes, and she’s taking a lot of grief from the clique of “in” girls at school. To make matters even worse, now she’s having strange dreams involving swords and knights and battles, and things seem to get weird whenever she touches water.
The weirdness comes to a head the morning the lake starts singing to her. Next thing she knows, she’s underwater, talking to the Lady of the Lake of King Arthur fame (who turns out to be an ancestor), has acquired a nerdy sidekick, Wally, has been bestowed magical powers, and has been sent on a quest to find the five scattered shards of Excalibur before the powerful wizard Merlin, in his unsuspected modern-day guise, can get his hands on them. Can Ariane and Wally figure out how to use her new abilities to meet the challenge…or will they die trying?
Elizabeth’s latest release is Looking For a Hero, which contains two short novels by bestselling author Debbie Macomber. This audiobook was produced by BeeAudio for Harper Collins/Harlequin, and is now available at Audible!
Two classic stories of finding love where you least expect it!
As far as Nash Davenport’s concerned, marriage isn’t shelter from the storm – it is the storm. He’s a divorce attorney, himself divorced, who believes no married couple can live up to their wedding vows. Savannah Charles, however, believes in the value – and the values – of marriage. She’s a wedding planner who finds herself saying yes when Nash unexpectedly proposes. Even though it’s strictly a business proposal….
Would-be romance writer Bailey York has already failed twice at love. She thinks men are wonderful to read and write about, but that’s it. Which is probably why she has such difficulty creating a hero for her novel. What she needs is a real-life example. She finds one in Parker Davidson – he’s everything a hero should be. Compellingly attractive. Forceful and determined, yet capable of tenderness. A man of substance. Parker is perfect as Bailey’s inspiration – but he wants to be the hero in her life, not just in her book!
Elizabeth’s latest release is the first in the Ginger Gold mystery series by Lee Strauss: Murder on the SS Rosa, now available at Audible! Elizabeth will be narrating the next two books in this 1920s cozy mystery series – Murder at Hartigan House and Murder at Bray Manor – in early 2018.
It’s 1923 and young war widow fashionista Ginger Gold makes a cross-Atlantic journey with her companion Haley Higgins to London, England, to settle her father’s estate. When the ship’s captain is found dead, Ginger is only too happy to lend her assistance to the handsome Chief Inspector Basil Reed.
The SS Rosa delivers a convincing array of suspects – the wife, the mistress, a jealous crew mate. To Ginger’s dismay, her name has been added to the list!
With a little help from Ginger’s dog Boss, Ginger and Haley navigate the clues (those wartime operative skills come in handy). They must solve the case and clear Ginger’s name before they dock – and oh, whatever shall she wear?
A fascinating introduction to a character that will rival Miss Fisher in the cozy genre set in the period between world wars.
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the latest book in the popular Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland: Privateer, book #5, now available at Audible. If you haven’t yet listened to this swashbuckling SFF adventure series, start with Into the Dark, and continue with Mutineer, The Little Ships, and HMS Nightingale. Be sure to listen to the audio sample of the latest release!
Even with no war on, there are always battles to fight.
A cease-fire in the war with Hanover leaves Lieutenant Alexis Carew on half-pay, in-atmosphere, and with her ship laid up in ordinary until called upon once more for the needs of the Service. She was, at least, lucky enough to be in her home star system when her last ship, HMS Nightingale, paid off, unlike much of her former crew.
She’s left to help manage her family lands, though still with no certainty she’ll be allowed to inherit them. It would be a tranquil, peaceful life, if not for the influx of asteroid miners seeking their fortunes, the uncertainties of her inheritance, and the nagging certainty that her current life is not what she really wants.
She’d give anything to command a ship again.
Elizabeth’s latest new release is Amelia Judd’s A Venture of the Heart, the first book in the Silver Bay romance series, now available at Audible!
Love is a risky venture in Amelia Judd’s award-winning romance
“Hello, Pax. It’s good to see you again.”
And with those frigid words, karma kicked his ass and blew his dreams into a million tiny fragments.
Paxton Bennett walked away from a privileged upbringing to devote his life to La Vida de Ensueño, the socially responsible luxury resort he manages in Costa Rica. No way will Pax let a hotel chain swallow up La Vida and turn it into another lifeless clone. All he needs is a loan so he can match a buy-out offer. Unfortunately, every damn bank keeps saying no. He has one last hope – an on-site visit from a loan officer that he’s sure he can impress….
Banker Sage Somerset doesn’t want to see Pax Bennett across a busy coffee shop, let alone spend a week at a tropical resort with him. After their cringe-worthy last encounter, just hearing his name makes her blush or curse. Plus, there are snakes in Costa Rica. A lot of snakes! Determined to remain professional on her unwelcome assignment, Sage hopes she can survive a week in Pax’s world….
But a quirky staff, meddlesome family, and the night-time visit of a tiny green gecko soon threaten to turn business into pleasure. Will Pax and Sage fight their troublesome chemistry? Or will they take a chance on the biggest venture of all – each other?
Elizabeth has a sweet treat for you today: the release of Ann S. Marie’s Strawberry Meringue Cupcake and Murder, a Dana Sweet cozy mystery, now available at Audible!
Murder strikes again in the small town of Berry Cove. Dana Sweet, part-time mystery riddles blogger who has inherited the Cozy Cupcakes Café from her late grandmother, is once again drawn into a strange murder with a bizarre twist. Chrissy, the gossiping beautician at Bea’s Salon, is found dead in her bathtub with a half-eaten strawberry meringue cupcake in her hand. Was it suicide? An accident? Or murder? Dana needs to find out soon before the reputation of the Cozy Cupcakes Café is tarnished forever.
Elizabeth’s recording of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey, produced by Essential Audiobooks, is now available at Audible! This brand-new production of Austen’s earliest completed novel joins Elizabeth’s best-selling version of Persuasion, released by Essential Audio earlier this year.
Jane Austen’s first novel, Northanger Abbey, published posthumously in 1818, tells the story of Catherine Morland and her dangerously sweet nature, innocence, and sometime self-delusion.
Though Austen’s fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature. The satirical Northanger Abbey pokes fun at the Gothic novel while earnestly emphasizing caution to the female sex.
