About the Book:

Beth Sergeant and Nick Chester come from opposite ends of the social food chain. While he sees a beautiful woman without an agenda, she sees a wealthy playboy. Can he convince her to let go of her insecurities and take a chance on love, when challenges from his past force her to reveal her most guarded secret?

Owner of La Bella Vita, a five-star day spa nestled in the affluent suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee, Beth Sergeant knows her elite clientele first hand. She attended their private schools. She was even engaged, although briefly, to one of their most recognized bachelors. But she never fit in to their social-elite world.

After losing his parents to a car accident at a young age, Nick Chester was raised by his grandfather, the wealthiest man in Nashville. When he chooses to socialize, he has a never-ending list of exclusive events and beautiful women vying for his attention. Yet he never lets himself forget that everyone has an agenda.

Beth can’t resist Nick’s charm and accepts an invitation to dinner, despite her deep-seated insecurities. She proves she’s nothing like other women Nick’s dated and learns to trust him in return. But just as the last of their resistance crumbles and true love is within reach, challenges from Nick’s past threaten to destroy everything and force Beth to reveal her most guarded secret.

My Review:

Winter’s Magic by Cynthia Gail made me smile from beginning to end. It was the type of book that just makes you feel good inside. Winter’s Magic was very believable and the characters are relatable.

I read this book in a short amount of time. Winter’s Magic has the perfect blend of sexual chemistry, seduction and most of all, romance. I truly look forward to reading more work by Cynthia Gail!

About the Author:

My husband and I live in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee with our teenage son and three dogs. Life is busy, but when I have free time, I love to read. A math/science girl at heart and a retail analyst by trade, I never thought I’d be writing romance. But one day, a story popped into my head and I had to write it down. The fantasy, escape, and wonder of just reading multiplied by ten-fold and I couldn’t stop my fingers from typing my own fairy tales.

I hope you enjoy my stories. Each one touches on modern day issues, fears, and challenges that women face every day. And each one illustrates that love is within reach if you let down those walls and allow your heart to open. Our lives and experiences are so much more meaningful when we have someone to share them with.

Cynthia’s latest book is the contemporary romance, Winter’s Magic (Book 1 in the Music City Hearts series).

Blog Tour: Televenge by Pamela King Cable

 

Title: Televenge

Author: Pamela King Cable

Genre: Women’s Fiction

Review:

Pamela King Cable took me to a world I did not know existed until I read Televenge. In this work of fiction, we are introduced to a young lady named Andie who simply wants to be a wife and a mother. Andie’s family is not completely ‘sold’ on the local church and their larger-than-life minister but her husband, Joe and his family are so involved as if they are brainwashed.

Reverend Calvin Artury is the minister of this church and he has ambitions beyond his local congregation. Artury believes he should be a worldwide phenomenon and will not stop at anything to gain his fame. The church seemed to be like a cult and it has all of the drama and suspense that one could only imagine.

Pamela King Cable has written a novel that will keep you engaged and at times shaking your head wondering what really happened. Southern mega churches are not something I am not familiar with and Televenge has made me want to learn more about this culture. It should be noted that this book is not anti-religion but it more one of against those individuals that misuse their power. Televenge is definitely a book worth reading! 4 stars

Synopsis:

Andie Oliver is a faithful woman—to God, to husband Joe, and to televangelist Calvin Artury, a Godfather in a Mafia of holy men. Joe works limitless hours on the megachurch ministry team, falling deeper into debauchery, while Andie attempts to free him from the Reverend’s control and far-reaching influence. Uncovering long-hidden truths—even murder—she loses everything, including her children. Andie fights for redemption for her family and herself, confronting the very definition of sin, and shaking the Christian evangelical world to its core. Evading ruthless adversaries who will go to any lengths to protect Reverend Artury, Andie battles the dark side of televangelism.
