BLOG TOUR: Upheld by The Grace Lane Authors





Upheld: Ordinary women discovering an Extraordinary God




Life happens. Ordinary and extraordinary events fill the days and nights, but regardless of the circumstance, God is there. We’re five friends who, over the course of a decade, learned to recognize the heavenly touches in our lives. We share our stories in a series of short vignettes, as glimpses of the profound and practical ways God lifts us.

First as a newlywed and then as a young mother, Rebekah awakens to the daily light that comes from realizing how often and simply the Lord touches her life. Jeni nurtures a child with special needs and learns that strength and support are only a prayer away. Elizabeth forges a new path towards renewal and regeneration after she exits the roller coaster ride of her spouse’s addiction. Faith discovers the beauty of reminders from a loving Heavenly Father that she has worth and the precious gift of agency. Dawn opens her mind to the understanding that no matter what happens peace can abound and everything will work out.

In Upheld: Ordinary women discovering an Extraordinary God we invite you to walk with us, explore the nooks and crannies of life, and have joy in the knowledge that you are not forgotten. As you read, we hope you will also discover God upholding you in your own life.

Five women have joined together under the pen name, Grace Lane, to write about their personal experiences in hopes to inspire and uplift others.  The following character sketches will give you a little insight about each author.





Rebekah: 
Writing about motherhood and her husband’s health struggles, Rebekah lives true to the meaning of her name—to bind. Life’s experiences have shaped her into a wise, steadfast daughter of God who has the beautiful ability to make others laugh through her clever wit.
Jeni: 
Jeni’s stories revolve around the loving care of her son with special needs. Knowing that he will not live out his childhood, she’s armed with strength and determination to give him the best life possible. The bright hope Jeni finds through the Savior will encourage the lowest of hearts.
Elizabeth:
Elizabeth is passionate about sharing the Light of Christ. You’ll feel this in reading about the challenges she faces with her spouse’s addiction and divorce. Through sophistication, uplifting words, and a touch of spunk, she’s a modern-day disciple “gathering in the fold” and feeding His sheep.
Faith:
A woman of intuition, Faith has a distinctive gift for understanding people. Her personal goal in life is to help women recognize their potential in whatever role they fill. She writes about her battle in overcoming abuse as a child and her fight with low self-esteem.

Dawn:
A single mom for ten years, Dawn not only believes the motto “Light trumps darkness”, but she lives it every day. Her short stories are about finding God after a heart-crushing divorce. Dawn touches many lives through her unwavering testimony and simple ways.

BLOG TOUR: Tempted by the Viscount by Sofie Darling




Tempted by the Viscount
by
Sofie Darling


Genre: Historical Romance


Pub Date: June 27th, 2018

London, April 1825


Lord Jakob Radclyffe left his past behind in the Far East. Or so he thinks until a ruthless thief surfaces in London, threatening to ruin his daughter’s reputation. With the clock ticking, Jake needs the scandalous Lady Olivia Montfort’s connections in the art world to protect his daughter’s future.


Olivia, too, has a past she’d like to escape. By purchasing her very own Mayfair townhouse, she’ll be able to start a new life independent from all men. There’s one problem: she needs a powerful man’s name to do so. The Viscount St. Alban is the perfect name.


A bargain is struck.


What Olivia doesn’t anticipate is the temptation of the viscount. The undeniable spark of awareness that races between them undermines her vow to leave love behind. Soon, she has no choice but to rid her system of Jake by surrendering to her craving for a single scorching encounter.


But is once enough? Sometimes once only stokes the flame of desire higher and hotter. And sometimes once is all the heart needs to risk all and follow a mad passion wherever it may lead.





Sofie spent much of her twenties raising two boys and reading every book she could get her hands on. Once she realized that she was no longer satisfied with simply reading the books she loved, that she must write them, too, she decided to finish her degree and embark on a writing career. Mr. Darling and the boys gave her their wholehearted blessing.


When she’s not writing heroes who make her swoon, she runs a marathon in
a different state every year, visits crumbling medieval castles whenever she gets a chance, and enjoys a slightly codependent relationship with her beagle, Bosco.

BLOG TOUR: Glimpses of Wilderness by Lee Ann Ward SPOTLIGHT+GIVEAWAY





Glimpses of Wilderness
The Glimpses Series Book 1
by
Lee Ann Ward


Genre:
YA Romance

No nightmares about my dad’s car crashing or my sister’s tiny face
vanishing in a window of red. No, not anymore. Now when I sleep I
fall into an expanse of frozen wilderness, the other life I’ve lived…


The one I’ve lived with him.

Anna experiences vivid dreams from a past-life she lived in the 1800s with
her husband Robert and their children in the wilderness of the
Michigan Territory. Much like her own mother grieving the man and
child she lost, Anna can’t simply let go of the memories that haunt her.

But when she runs into Robert in this lifetime, a whirlwind of their past
lives—and deaths—rocks her modern world to the core. What will
she be willing to risk to spend every lifetime with Robert? 

In the twists and turns of “repeating” their lives over and over
through time, Anna must sacrifice everything for a glimpse of immortal love.

BLOG TOUR: The Šehhinah Trilogy By Ivana Skye SPOTLIGHT+GIVEAWAY




The Stars That Rise at Dawn
Šehhinah Book 1
By
Ivana Skye


Genre: Urban Fantasy

Yenatru
had always had trouble making friends. So he didn’t expect that
he’d have such an easy time befriending Lucifer…


Meanwhile,
his one previous friend Elīya is still not over the loss of the
third member of their friend group, Tamar. She disappeared one day to
become one of God’s Holy, and as far as Elīya’s concerned,
nothing’s ever been the same. It doesn’t help that her university
philosophy program is turning out much less interesting than she’d
hope.

It
could be that Yenatru’s weird new friend has just the skills she
needs to solve all her problems. But in order to get Lucifer’s
help, she’ll have to confront parts of herself she’s never dared
to.







The
Birds That Fly at Dusk
Šehhinah
Book 2



Celyet’s
been trying to keep her head low ever since she left the camp of
demons she grew up in. But then she actually talks to a barista at
the local coffee shop. And then an angel gets involved…


Celyet
finds nothing more terrifying than the idea of being misued or
misinterpreted by people. That’s why she hasn’t been talking to
anyone for half a year. But when she challenges herself to visit
somewhere in town she’s never been, she ends up making a terrible
mistake, bringing her time spent hiding to an abrupt end.

Sän
may work at a coffee shop, but that doesn’t mean they know how to
comfort people. But they really want to find a way to make a
difference for that sad-looking demon who keeps coming in.

And
just because the shop’s owned by the angel Jibril doesn’t mean
that they’re going to stop by anytime soon and start flinging puns
at people … right?











The
Lives That Argue For Us
Šehhinah
Book 3



Teśena
and Kjorel have been in an open relationship for years. But when
Kjorel leaves to travel for eight months, Teśena doesn’t really
have anyone else to turn to. Well, except the most powerful person in
the world…


Everyone knows God
is made of fire. So of course no one would ever suggest that the
easily-overwhelmed Teśena try praying to Them. Then why, when Teśena
tries to do exactly that in a moment of desperation, do they seem to
get along so well?

On the other
side of the world, Kjorel’s dealing with a loneliness of his own.
That is, until he starts his visit to the city of Ēnnuh, and finds a
boyfriend within a few days. With no way to contact Teśena, he can
only hope their previous agreements stand … or that Teśena will
improbably find a way to communicate with him anyway.

After
all, what’s a few thousand miles when you have God on your side?













Ivana
Skye is a disaster without a permanent address, who much like her
characters, spends a lot of time navigating the transition into
adulthood and screaming. Oh, and writing. She does a lot of that
too.


Despite currently being in the middle of multiple months
of travel through various countries she is not from, she still
retains a strong connection to the state of Colorado, where she will
probably permanently live. Eventually.

COVER REVEAL: Her Two Men in London by Dana Delamar & Kristine Cayne












  Title: Her Two Men In London

Series: Total Indulgence Book 1

By: Dana Delamar & Kristine Cayne


Publication Date: May 15, 2018


Genre: Erotic Menage Romance (MMF)


Cover Designer: Mayhem Cover Creations


Publisher: Three Orcas Press LLC













When three isn’t a crowd…



It was only supposed to be a vacation fling during a writers’ retreat to England and Scotland. So why does being with him—with them—feel so right?



PAIGE

My work and my daughter are my life. I agreed to a vacation fling with one man—and now there are two! Things are getting far too complicated…



RILEY

I lost hard at the game of love, and now I don’t even want to play. I just want to have fun, but there’s something about him—and her—that’s calling to me…



CARTER

My relationship with my ex-wife gave me PTSD. I’ve found the man I want—but he wants us to have a girlfriend too. I’m not sure I can do that, even for him…







Pre-Order Your Copy Now!!





























RILEY



I groaned and locked our lips together, swallowing Carter’s moans. I knew how aroused he got watching me kiss a woman. I knew because seeing him kiss a woman did the same to me.



And that’s what tonight was really about.



With a comical pop, I released Carter’s mouth and patted both their sides. “Now that we’re all warmed up…” I rose to my feet, turning to look at both of them. “It’s your turn.”



Paige’s brow crinkled in a way that was cute as hell. “Our turn to do what?”



“To kiss.” I took a moment to look at her. I hadn’t miscalculated, had I? If seeing Carter and me kiss had turned her off, this whole adventure was a non-starter.



Her cheeks were flushed, her nipples pressed firmly against her blouse, and her beautiful hazel eyes were slightly dilated. I smiled. “You like him, don’t you? You’re attracted to him. I can tell by the…” I let the words hang and ran a hand along my own cheek, teasingly.



She blushed and shot a timid glance in Carter’s direction. Had any woman ever looked more gorgeous and sexy, especially when she was a little embarrassed? This was going to be so much fun, if she allowed it.



Carter’s eyes were fixed on Paige. If her pupils were a little dilated, Carter’s were blown. Our earlier play had something to do with it, but I could tell how much he desired her. I’d seen that look before. Never quite as powerfully because, in all honesty, we’d barely known the women who’d shared our bed.



Paige was different.



As though our minds were running on the same wavelength, Carter took Paige’s hand and peered into her eyes. “I really would like to kiss you, Paige, but only if you want it too.”



She squirmed and looked up at me imploringly, and gave a nervous laugh. “It seems so… I don’t know. Sixth grade spin the bottle?”



I raised a brow in challenge. “Does it matter?”



Stepping between Carter’s outstretched legs, I leaned down and kissed him, a slow and exaggerated French kiss, just the way he loved them, wet with lots of tongue. He retaliated, twining our tongues together with our mouths open wide.



Jesus. I groaned, my cock throbbing against the zipper of my slacks. I was getting too caught up in this. Reluctantly, I pressed our mouths together before slowly backing away. Carter looked wrecked, crazy turned on. He didn’t care that we had an audience—or maybe he was so turned on because of it.



My hands still on his shoulders, I sucked in a deep breath and barely managed to string some words together. “You want to kiss him too,” I said to Paige in a rough voice.



Given her heightened color, the rapid rising and falling of her chest, the pressing together of her thighs, I already knew her answer. Still, I needed her to say it.



She bit her lip. “I-I do.”
