Authors of Deadwood ~ Beverly Ovalle ~ Have you seen a dragon fly?

As you can see, I’m a bit obsessed with dragons!

And I always wonder, have you seen a dragon fly?

Walked unknowingly in their path?

Not even from the corner of your eye?

One day I hope the truth will be known at last.

My other love is the military. Even my paranormal romances have the occasional veteran. I firmly believe my heroes wear dog tags.

Unless of course, they’re dragons!

Hope to see you at Deadwood SD June 6-8!

Beverly Ovalle

Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.

Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.

An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.

A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.

Authors of Deadwood ~ His Last Hope by Sharla Wylde (Hot off the press!)

His Last Hope: The Tanners, Chance’s Story

Two strangers, physically and emotionally damaged, face their greatest fears to save an innocent child.

Wounded veteran Chance Tanner returns from Afghanistan broken in body and spirit, determined to find independence and peace. When his security business is tasked with guarding a young murder witness, Chance gets embroiled in a deadly gang war. To save the boy’s life Chance takes him to the last place he ever wanted to be: his family’s ranch. He can’t protect the boy if the kid’s do-gooder social worker insists on putting herself in danger. He doesn’t need her help. But does he need… her?

Hope Mason hasn’t met a problem she can’t fix. Until a grouchy security owner claims she’s in his way. The child in her charge witnessed a brutal murder and she needs to make sure he’s safe. Even if that means hiding with the crankiest, sexiest bodyguard she’s ever met. Maybe helping him face his fears will enable her to finally confront hers. In the process, she just might save a boy’s life. And fix her own.

The Santiago’s

A Saint’s Salvation (The Santiago’s Book 1)

 

Corporal Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago needs to go home to reclaim the man he used to be. To be the man he was before Operation Enduring Freedom slowly hardened his heart. He needs to reconnect to the values and the reasons he is doing what he does. Saint also needs to try to forget the courageous woman he fell in love with.

Petty Officer Angelina Jones’ life changed the moment Saint saved her life. She survived the blast but now has to deal with the fact that she will never be whole. She can’t believe that anyone would want her the way she is now. Digging up her courage, Angelina moves forward hoping against hope that she can live a full life again.

Crossing paths again brings their emotions to a full boil. A coincidence that will have them both reaching for their dreams.

From Me to You

Another snowy Saturday here in Wisconsin! My second day after retiring. I’m going to try to accomplish one thing everyday that needs doing. Yesterday was cleaning the toilet and sink in the upstairs bathroom. LOL. So you can see that my goals aren’t lofty. Just necessary. Today, I’m babysitting but I’m going to work in the bathroom again. Cleaning up the stuff that has accumulated in there for years. I’m determined to de-hoard my house! Well, it may not be that bad, but it’s bad enough!

My daughter is in Madison taking the test for her LPN license! I’m praying she passes. I’m sure she will. She’s studied hard to pass everything. Next year she’ll be doing the same to get her RN. I’m so proud of my little girl.

This isn’t just a random picture of one of my books. The cover is actually my daughter almost four years ago. Just before she had my granddaughter.

Well now that I’ve done my little plug, lol, I’ll continue. Right now our life revolves around our girls. The D and GD if I start abbreviating. It’s not that we ignore our son. Not even. But, he lives in South Carolina. He recently was stationed there. We’re proud of our Marine, too!

Besides babysitting, I’ll be writing. Once the D is home, I’ll start back up on Finding Faith. I’m getting closer to the end. Then, I’ll go over the beta read my buddy Tamara Hoffa did for me before she passed. Then it’ll be heading off to my editor, Molly S Daniels. The cover will be worked on within the next few days. The artist JM Walker is unavailable for the next few days.

Then, the dreaded blurb! Though, I’ve been thinking about it. I actually have been reading a book about how to make your blurb. It really seems to help. I’ve been doing the exercises in the book and it is taking shape! So I have to read a book to finish my book lol.

I’m really trying to get at least three books done by May. If I have one done, I’ll be satisfied, but not exactly happy. One of them will be more of a novella. I’ve been almost done with it for years but had it just sitting there. Mind you, it still needs editing and a cover. But, I’ll finish one book at a time! The other is a children’s book. I’m still trying to find an appropriate title. Not to mention, I need to get an art program (I’ve been searching for the right one) to do the illustrations. I’ll be publishing my children’s books under a pen name to keep the kiddies from seeing my steamy side! They grow up too fast as it is.

Have a good weekend, and don’t forget to check for Sunday Sales tomorrow!

The 12 Gods
Men in Love and at War Book 2
What’s in a dream? Maybe nothing or everything. There’s certainly more to
it when the same dream keeps recurring and can’t be ignored.
Justin’s best friend Lucas suspects it has something to do with
their upcoming holiday to Mykonos. He predicts something strangely
wonderful is going to happen to Justin while they are there. But
nothing could prepare Justin for what was in store for him.
When The 12 Gods fear that humans have learned to think for themselves,
diminishing their Godly powers, four Gods are sent to Earth to find
out what is really going on. Hesodo is particularly keen to go, but
to accomplish a completely different mission—to find Justin and win
him back. When Justin has a tragic accident, there is only one
option, which results in Justin finding out more than he bargained
for about his past love and history, teaching him that dreams should
never be ignored.

Sun, Sea and a Contemporary Art Gallery
Men in Love and at War Book 3
Coming from an underprivileged background in the East End of London,
Berkeley sets himself the challenge to escape poverty and do well for

challenge is with himself, and he escapes to the quiet of Tenerife
for love, only to lose it promptly. What now? With no career or
prospects in the unfamiliar country, what is Berkeley to do? He
decides to set up business opening an art gallery, yet knows nothing
about art. Comical disasters, veiled threats and visitors of a
spiritual nature, believing that he’s to be served up to the Devil
himself ensue. The whole experience pushes Berkeley to limits he’s
never encountered before, and he learns the hard way that what goes
around really does come around to haunt you. Only love and true
friendships can bring him back to the real world.

Rough Trade
Men in Love and at War Book 6
Berkeley is set for life after providing his Royal Services and decides to
travel to London to visit his friends and family to cheer him up.
There he has a raunchy chance encounter with a stranger on a train
who he meets again in unsuspected circumstances. In between all the
wild sexual antics, Leonard takes Berkeley back in time to a
spiritual world of religious communes, demons, exorcisms, and Ouija
boards that proves to be enlightening, unnerving, but most
worryingly, life threatening.
When Berkeley returns to Tenerife to discover his gardener has had an
accident, he enlists the help of a local beggar, a Moroccan man
called Mohammed, to service his garden and him. The sadness and
mystery of Mohammed’s past gradually unfolds, and when Berkeley
tries to do the right thing to help him, he is confronted with the
reality of Mohammed’s dark and chilling past.
Two different men spell double trouble for Berkeley, but he has never
shied away from a challenge—or a gorgeous man—and he’s not
about to now.
Trade Babes Turned Bad
Men in Love and at War Book 7
Two things are still plaguing Berkeley—the unexplained and strange
disappearance of Leonard, and the possible outcome of Mohammed’s
retrial for a manslaughter charge. They say bad things always come in
threes, and in Berkeley’s case that belief is no exception. When
Berkeley gets a call from one of his best friends from London, Paul,
his dose of bad karma is completed when he discovers Paul’s younger
brother, Kenny, has been killed in a tragic car accident. Berkeley
does his best to pacify Paul and stop him from going through with his
ludicrous plan. In exchange, Berkeley has to agree to go back to
London for the Trade reunion party. Berkeley and Paul have the time
of their lives, but when dawn breaks and the party’s over, all hell
breaks loose.
The Road to Mount Evans
Men in Love and at War Book 8
Berkeley and Paul are excited about attending their first gay rodeo in Denver,
Colorado. Even after a tiring fourteen-hour trip from London, the
bright lights and prospect of meeting some horny cowboys
instinctively draws them to Lower Downtown, where things aren’t
exactly what Berkeley had expected. Whilst Paul revels in throwing
himself at every available man in any bar or at any rodeo event,
Berkeley has different expectations. Beyond his wildest hopes and
dreams, Berkeley meets Nantan, a Native American, who sweeps Berkeley
off his feet. But Berkeley discovers there is a lot more to Nantan
than meets the eye.
Return to Loveland
Men in Love and at War Book 9
While Berkeley is waiting at Gatwick airport for his transfer flight from
Denver International airport to Tenerife, he convinces himself the
dream he’d had on the plane was more than just a dream. Battling
against rational thoughts and raw emotions, Berkeley follows his gut
instincts in search of the Native American, Nantan. Curious and keen
to understand more about Nantan’s life as a wolf, Berkeley gets a
lot closer than he expected to finding out what it’s really like.
Love conquers all as Berkeley escapes a close encounter with death
that cements his future with Nantan.
The Imposter
Men in Love and at War Book 10
Berkeley’s high spirits are dampened when he opens his world up to three
relative strangers and is confronted with a series of macabre
happenings. When things get out of hand, Berkeley turns to his
ex-partner, Captain Rick, to help unravel the mystery of what’s
happening and why. Berkeley’s gardener, Rene, a Santeria Priest, is
the obvious suspect. But is he too obvious and being set-up? Jacob,
an author, has the creative mind to develop and execute such a
cunning and sophisticated plan. Nantan has inside knowledge and the
opportunity. With another few suspects thrown into the pot, Berkeley
and Rick have their work cut out before time runs out and death
strikes again.
Born and raised in London, Lee worked as a successful senior management
consultant before moving to Tenerife to pursue a more fulfilling life
and to focus on his writing.
For Lee, the writing process is all
about when the mind and the fingers connect. He plans stories in his
head, but when the fingers take over, something else comes out…but
invariably, he is happy that he let his fingers do the talking.
He works with an amazing team at eXtasy/Divine books who inspire and
encourage his writing. He calls Jay Austin, the Chief Editor in
Charge, Laura McNellis, his editor and Carmen Waters, his
artist, THE DREAM TEAM. No further explanation required…
