ONCE UPON A COWBOY

A princess on-the-run finds sanctuary where she least expects it…

After nearly dying in an assassination attempt, Princess Alessandra of Glorvaird escapes to a place no one would ever think to look for her: small town Oklahoma and a ranch staffed by a herd of wooly, uncouth cowboys. One cowboy in particular gets under her skin, until she sees his softer side. She knows this interlude can’t last forever, but that doesn’t stop her from wishing it might…

Former Navy SEAL Gideon Hale might’ve rescued the princess from freezing to death, but the soldier doesn’t trust easily—or at all—especially when his gut tells him Alessandra is keeping secrets. But as Alessandra begins to fit into his life, he discovers another side to the princess—one that he can’t help but like.

When Alessandra’s enemies close in, Gideon must fight to save the woman who has become so much more than a princess…

Once Upon a Cowboy is a contemporary western retelling of the Snow White fairytale and Book 1 in the Cowboy Fairytales series.

On Conversations: #AAMBC #author James Jimmy Richardson

Please join me in welcoming author James Jimmy Richardson to Conversations today! James is here to talk about his new novel, Brooklyn Streets Meet Wall Street! So be sure and check out the cover, blurb and excerpt below! And don't forget to check out his bio too and get to know James Jimmy Richardson.

__________________________________________


BROOKLYN STREETS MEET WALL STREET

Coming from a ruff section of Brooklyn, New York, a young man climbs the ladder to success and falls in love. His happiness, however, can’t last forever, and an important friendship puts his future in jeopardy.

Josh Robinson was drifting through life. When he thinks about the man he wants to be in the future, the only thing he is certain of is that he wants to wear a suit. To Josh, a suit means respect. When people saw his father in a suit, they would go out of their way to call him Mister.

For his future, Josh picks one of the professions where wearing a suit is mandatory: securities trading. The second he sets foot on Wall Street, he knows he made a great decision.

His future looks even brighter when he meets the lovely Lisa. She is gorgeous and intelligent, but their relationship leads to a complicated and messy love triangle that will have severe repercussions for all of them.

In this novel of sweet romance and high finance, Josh is forced to make a difficult decision about his priorities and his future. Can he really have the dream job and the dream girl?

 



Excerpt from Brooklyn Streets Meet Wall Street
 

It had been two years since fulfilling my military obligation. I was working as a security guard at a college and happened to befriend a finance professor there. Professor Dean was around twenty years my senior, but we related to one another as if we were the same age. One morning after my night shift ended, I stopped by his office to chat. To my surprise he asked where I saw myself in five years. I sat there in shock for what seemed like an eternity. We’d never spoken on such a deep level before. He cut off my thoughts and said “if it takes you this long to answer, you have a problem.” He was right. Although I wanted to be a “somebody” in life, I had no direction. No idea of what I wanted to be and no idea of how to obtain that life.

So I told Professor Dean that I honestly didn’t know what I wanted to do, but I knew that I wanted to wear suits. My father was a singer in a gospel group, and when he would return home from a singing engagement, everyone would greet him as Mr. Perry. When he wasn’t performing, he worked as a custodian at a hospital. In his work clothes they would simply say hey or hi Perry. At a young age I realized that it was the suits he wore for his performances that made people address him differently. He was treated with respect, and I liked that.

The professor said well that’s a start and joked that I would probably have gone through multiple security uniforms by the time I wore a suit there at work.

We sat and chatted for a little while longer before I left so he could prepare for his first class of the day. On the train ride home I thought about my conversation with the professor as well as what the future held for me. I knew that I didn’t want to work security for the rest of my life. Not that there was anything wrong with it, but I had way bigger financial dreams than what they would pay me at that school or any other security guard company. The pay for guarding the country’s president and guarding the student body president of some school were of two different pay scales.



James Jimmy Richardson understands what it is to be a person of color working in the financial services industry. He was born in the Van Dyke Houses in Brooklyn, New York, and spent twenty years in financial services. He has worked as a securities trader, a financial advisor, an account manager for a trading software company, and a compliance officer.

On Conversations: #AAMBC #author Holly Mosley Cooper

Please join me in welcoming author Holly Mosley Cooper to Conversations today! Holly is here to talk about her novel, Confessions of a Reformed Cougar: The Accidental Cougar! So be sure and check out the cover and blurb below! And don't forget to check out her interview too and get to know Holly Mosley Cooper.

__________________________________________



CONFESSIONS OF A REFORMED COUGAR: The Accidental Cougar

Life as an accidental cougar is every bit as steamy, wild and dangerous as you’d expect. Janet wasn’t looking for commitment. She tried that. It was boring. She was a carefree artist, playing the field, playing around, and having fun with the young men that seemed to fall into her arms. She was living lavish and loving savage. Janet proved to be a true example of the old saying that, “Hurt people hurt people.” Then, a new man enters her life. With him her life seems wonderful. Their love comes hot and easy; until time reveals that he is not the man that he portrayed himself to be. Tables turn, lives change and breathless moments lead to loss of breath. Will the heart-breaker finally be broken?

 



Interview with Holly Mosley Cooper

Who is your favorite author?
 

Terry McMillan is my favorite but I am quite fond of Zane, Mary Higgins Clark and Nora Roberts
 

When did you first start writing?
 

I have been writing since Junior High School. However, I have only been a published author for three years.

What inspired you to write your latest book?
 

I wanted to do something a little different. I was hoping to do something that would resonate with people.  My first book was an autobiography. I wrote one fiction book, a romance novel and then I decided to turn it into a series.
 

How did you come up with the title of your latest book?
 

My title form my latest book came from being teased by my friends often about being a Cougar. I found that comical but then I started thinking about possible titles and “Confessions of a Reformed Cougar" seemed like the best choice. I think it was a great decision.



Holly Mosley Cooper was born in Orlando, FL and educated in the Orange County Public Schools. She holds several degrees primarily focused on technical communication, health care, paralegal studies and business management, administration and information technology. She is an alumnus of Florida A & M University, the University of Central Florida, Everest University and Rollins College.

Ms. Cooper has spent her career, over 20 years, as an administrator in the non-profit sector. She has been writing for many years but only recently became a published author three years ago. In the past four years, she has been a blogger. This has given her the opportunity to express her feelings and opinions on many of today’s issues of modern life. It also affords her the outlet to talk about her life experiences.


She has three children but only one at home. She is raising her youngest son alone. This is particularly challenging because he was recently diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome or High Functioning Autism. Through the process of getting his diagnosis, she has realized that she also has Asperger’s Syndrome.


“Confessions of a Reformed Cougar” is her book series and “Life Is a Precious Gift,” her first book is her autobiography. Ms. Cooper says, “I love to write and I feel that it would be terribly selfish of me not to share it with others. God has blessed me with this wonderful ability and I am tremendously grateful every day for it!”

BODY OF EVIDENCE

And she thought facing a firing squad was bad…

When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States.

What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States.


Download BODY OF EVIDENCE for FREE while you can!

Kindle / Nook / Kobo / Google Play / iBooks




Rachel Grant worked for over a decade as a professional archaeologist and mines her experiences for storylines and settings, which are as diverse as excavating a cemetery underneath an historic art museum in San Francisco; surveying an economically depressed coal mining town in Kentucky; and mapping a seventeenth century Spanish and Dutch fort on the island of Sint Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles.

In all her travels and adventures as an archaeologist, Rachel has found many sites and artifacts, but she’s only found one true treasure, her husband, David. They met while working together excavating a four thousand year old site about to be destroyed by the expansion of a sewage treatment plant in Seattle. Despite their romantic first meeting, she has no intention of ever setting a story at a sewage treatment plant.

Rachel Grant lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and children.
