Book Showcase: Royal Cowries #Historical #African #Romance #NewRelease is out

Welcome to a special edition of Book Showcase!
 
Royal Cowries (Cowries #1) is out
 


My long awaited historical African romance is out. As you know, I started writing Royal Cowries (Cowries Series #1) set in exotic Africa about four years ago.

Usually, I write contemporary romance, and there are eight published love stories on
Amazon.com so far. Crossing over to a different genre - historical- was daunting. But I give all glory to God for making this day possible. *Dancing*


It gives me great pleasure to announce the release of Royal Cowries (Cowries Series #1) and to invite you to celebrate this new milestone with me on the release tour.

Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel

In the land of Igodomigodo in 1470, a man's word was law.
But in the hands of a wild
maiden, Uvbi, lies the future, where women might have a say. When her freedom is endangered, Uvbi issues a threat to Nagudia before she disappears.

Nagudia, a renowned bronze caster conceals his past to gain freedom, but when he hears a scream in the bush, he takes action and his destiny becomes intertwined with Uvbi's. Are their lives destined together or will the journey to come uncover truths that will throw them apart?

'A new name?' Ubvi's eyes widened. 'What name change do you refer to?'
'I can't say anymore on that subject for now.' Nagudia sealed his lips with two fingers, drawing her gaze to his long, strong hands.
Uvbi nodded in understanding. 'Going back to our conversation, I must warn you. My ways are littered with demands. You might become weary of them as time unfolds.'
He puffed. 'You insult me when you imply I might not live up to your expectations.'
A grin worked its way to her lips. 'I sincerely apologize, great warrior.'
Nagudia strode back and forth. 'Go on then, let your worries, and demands be heard. We shall see if I can live with them. Can any demand be more tasking than the ones you dumped on me in the past, I wonder? Did I not meet them in a timely manner?'
Uvbi liked the glowing fire in her chest and she sighed in harmony with the rustling leaves.
He stepped too close. Nagudia smelled of rain and freshly cut grass.
Hot air blasted through his skin straight into her body. A wild tremor passed from her head to her feet. Uvbi pressed her wet body into his, and he held her for a long time.
He pressed his cheeks against her hair and inhaled deeply. When his calloused palms stilled the movement on her back, she lifted her head.
His eyes stayed hooded but his arms tightened around her waist. 
Time stood still.
His heart beat grew louder, and faster.
Her heart leaped.
The trees whistled and cheered.
In the ensuing silence, her body drew strength from his solid chest wall, and tense belly. With her heart hammering to the unspoken words in his eyes, Uvbi stepped out of reach.
 

 


This is me, Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku
I love writing romance novels that are as intriguing and flirty as they are entertaining. Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels are a wide range of toe-curling, skin-tingling romance books with compelling characters who have heart and soul.

The stories are dotted with unexpected twists and turns and conflict and are set in fascinating Africa, enticing Europe and America. The witty dialogue between the characters keeps you thoroughly entertained.

If you want to cuddle up and relax, grab a copy, travel with the characters and sail away to Pleasure Island. They cure boredom and relieve stress!

In 2010, I created Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel. My first contemporary romance novel; LOITERING SHADOWS was published in May 2010. Other Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels are, STORMY DEFENSE, BEYOND the LADY, the National Novel Writing Month 2010 winning novel, THE GARDENER’s ICE MAIDEN, SPARKLING DAWN, the spicy hot HUSBAND to RENT, Stolen Valentine Kiss (Holiday Series #1) and Kiss My Lips (Holiday Series #2). 

At the moment, I’m working on my four romance novels. My job is taking care of my gorgeous, life-size hero of a husband and two vibrant and loving ‘near teenagers’.  In my spare time, I love to read romance novels, swim and watch TV shows.

The #Woman in #Marriage - The #Praying Woman #Married Women

Welcome to the continuation of The Woman in Marriage.

Series two is titled - The Praying Woman

Last week, I mentioned that I was invited to speak to a group of married women during their Mother's Day Symposium. To read the first post on The Forgiving Woman, click here.

Based on their responses, I decided to share the presentation in a seven-series post.

Today, I'm going to discuss The Praying Woman.

2. The Praying Woman – Hannah was a praying woman - 1 Sam 1-2

The woman in marriage knows she must pray in season and out of season. She understands that she must draw near to God at all times. In addition, she trusts in the Lord with all her heart concerning; her husband, children, work, extended family and life in general. She does not lean on her own understanding, and in all her ways, she acknowledges the Lord and God directs her path. Prov 3:5.

Hannah was married to Elkanah the Ephramite. Her husband had two wives. Peninah had many children and Hannah was barren. The Lord had closed up her womb.

Every year, Elkanah and his family went up to Shiloh to worship and sacrifice to the Lord of Hosts. During the offering, her husband gave Peninah several portions for her daughters and sons. To Hannah, he gave a double portion because he loved her.

For years, Peninah provoked Hannah severely to make her miserable.

(Remember: the seeds planted in the garden that endured adverse conditions?) - read last week's post.

One year, as Eli, the Priest sat by the door of the Tabernacle, Hannah wept in bitterness of soul. She poured out her heart to God, so much so, Eli thought she was drunk with wine.

(i) There would be times in your marriage that you would seek the Lord’s face, and you would weep. But you must understand and know that crying may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.

Know that no condition is permanent.

In her prayer of petition, Hannah made a vow to God; “O Lord of Hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your maidservant and remember me and not forget your maidservant, but will give your maidservant a male child, then, I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life and no razor shall come upon his head.” And Eli blessed her petition.

(ii) There are times, when the woman in marriage makes a vow to the Lord. A vow she intends to keep.

The Lord remembered Hannah and she conceived and bore a son, his name was Samuel (Prophet Samuel who judged Israel).

(iii) The woman in marriage must be willing to endure hurt and misery because she knows the Lord will remember her for good. She knows she is loved by God and understands that these trials builds her patience and maturity.
 
In fulfilment of her vows, Hannah gave up Samuel and rejoiced about it and the Lord blessed her greatly with five more children. You can read Hannah’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving in 1 Sam 2: 1.

(iv) The woman in marriage is glad to make sacrifices to the Lord, knowing HE will bless her richly.

(v) She brings up her children to fear the Lord. She teaches them and instructs them in God’s commandments.

(vi) The woman in marriage places her trust in her God. Hannah trusted God.

Woe is he who puts his trust in man. Do not put your confidence in a companion. Micah 7:5.

Oh woman, when you put your TRUST in your husband, you erroneously equate him with God. When your ‘trusted’ husband commits adultery, bears a son outside your marriage or deceives you, all hell breaks loose. Your world falls apart. Why? Because you forgot your husband was HUMAN.

God is the only one you MUST TRUST. Why? Because HE does what he says HE will do, HE does not LIE, he does not leave nor forsake you. HE is with you when you go through problems, you just don't know it. Believe me, HE sees your pain.

God is Dependable, Reliable, Unshakeable, Unchangeable, Unfailing, always there to lift you up, because HE is your Helper, your Deliverer, your Strong Tower, Your Refuge and Fortress, your Shield and Buckler.

(vii) Dear Woman, trust God to keep your husband faithful and wise, to keep your children on the narrow path and to make your home a place of refuge for others who hurt because you have been through it.

The series continues next week with the Virtuous Woman. Thank you for visiting.

Welcome to Book Showcase!

Author Dawn Sullivan presents her new release, Tempting His Heart (Serenity Springs Book 1). 

Enjoy the tempting teasers.

Tempting His Heart is FINALLY here! 


Tempting His Heart
Sloane Murphy needed a fresh start.  A new beginning.  She has finally crawled out of the hell her life used to be and moved on, even if it did take several years.  Purchasing a bookstore in the small town of Serenity Springs, Texas is a dream come true for her.  Meeting her best friend’s brother, a man she had heard so much about, was an added bonus.
Creed Caldwell is the Sheriff of Serenity Springs.  His life is centered around his daughter, his family, and his job.  He didn’t think there was room for anyone else in it, until he met Sloane. The attraction is instant, the passion undeniable.  Until someone decides they don’t want Creed and Sloane together.  
Will Creed be able to protect both his family and the woman he is falling for?  Will Sloane find the strength to place her trust in another man after her painful past?  Will the fight to not only survive but to forge a future with one another bring them closer together, or be their ultimate demise?

 Author Bio

 I have a wonderful, supportive husband and three beautiful children. I enjoy spending time with all of them which normally involves some baseball, shooting hoops, taking walks, watching movies, and of course reading.

My passion for reading began at a very young age and only grew over time. Whether I was bringing home a book from the library, or sneaking one of my mom's romance novels and reading by the light in the hallway when we were supposed to be sleeping, I always had a book.
I read several different genres and subgenres, but Paranormal Romance and Romantic Suspense have always been my favorites. I read anything by Katie Reus, Lora Leigh, J.R. Ward and Rebecca Zanetti. 
I have always made up my own stories, and have just recently decided to start sharing them. I hope everyone enjoys reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.

#Romance #Quotes #Monday 55

Welcome to Romance Quotes Monday!

What a cool Monday morning it is in London. It is nice to be back with more romance quotes for you.

Over the weekend, I finished reading Don't Stop Till You Get Enough (Stafford Brothers #3) by Chicki Brown. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this love story. It was absolutely fantastic! Find my 5 star review on Amazon.

When I was done reading Chicki's book, I grabbed the paperback copy of my upcoming historical romance; Royal Cowries (Cowries Series #1) due out tomorrow, Tuesday Mar 31st! I'm buzzing.

As I read this moving love story in print, I found two romantic short quotes, I wanted to share with you. But I have deliberately not revealed the characters who said the quotes from Royal Cowries. Read the story when it is released. Hic!

In all, you have four romance quotes to stir your romantic thoughts this week. Enjoy!

RomQuote #1

From: Don't Stop Till You Get Enough (Stafford Brothers Series #3) by Chicki Brown


Available on Amazon in Ebook or Paperback

"There are good times and bad times in the best of marriages, the sooner you understand that the better you'll be. The good marriages are not the ones in which the couples never fight. They're the ones where the couples have their problems and figure out ways to solve them and still be happy together" ~ By Mrs. Lilian Stafford, the family matriarch.

RomQuote #2

"If a man loves a woman's soul, he'll end up loving one woman. If he just loves a woman's body or face, all the women in the world won't satisfy him" ~ Dr. Victor Stafford (Snr.) the head of the Stafford family.

RomQuote #3

From: Royal Cowries (Cowries Series #1) by Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku

‘At last, my heart finds peace, and a home to roost.’

 

RomQuote #4
From: Royal Cowries (Cowries Series #1) by Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku

‘Marry me, the...one who stands guard over my heart, the one who when she leaves my side, I feel empty.’
