HARP’S VOICE Release Day Launch

Official Launch:
HARP’S VOICE (Harp’s Song #2) by Cassie Shine |
Release Date: June 24, 2014

Single-minded to the point of near seclusion, Harp Evans’ only goal was to move
away from her abusive mother, and start a new life at college. Now a freshman at
a prestigious university, Harp continues to struggle letting people in, including her
ex-boyfriend—Connor Williams—who has always stood by her, especially after her
mother exposed a devastating secret about Harp’s origin.
While Harp figures out how to navigate her relationships, especially with her
mom, Anne, she will have to exorcize her own demons and face challenges with
uncompromising courage, including reuniting her broken family—the family that
was shattered by the acts of one man.
After almost twenty years, is it possible for people to change their minds and
open their hearts? More importantly, is Harp strong enough to pull them all back
Harp's Voice (Harp's Song #2)
Harp's Song:
Today Harp received her high school diploma. Happiness, sadness, guilt and hope were ping ponging through me as her name was called and she walked across the stage. It was hard not to let the sadness and guilt override the happiness and hope, but that has been a constant struggle since I confronted her. The day I arrived at her District solo performance, there was a big chance she wouldn’t listen to me. It was risky, a big step; one my therapist urged me to take. I knew she was right—it was time to make amends. I had finally purged all the details of my sexual assault—after seventeen years—and admitted that Harp was the product of that offense. Even though I had suffered with the burden of that secret, and the memories of that night—that man—Harp had suffered far worse. She was innocent; a beautiful, fresh, clean soul who didn’t get the love-the mother-she deserved, because I was blinded by hate … and for that, I will always feel guilty. The human spirit is an inexplicable thing. There are people, like me, people that get knocked down and can’t get up. People that wallow in the pain that put them there, they let it fester and pull them further and further into oblivion. Then there are those who get pummeled, yet rise and repeat the process over and over again. That’s my daughter. Even as a child, she never let me ruin her. Years of neglect, verbal and physical abuse would push her to the floor, but the next day she would rise, as if she were surrounded by angels—their love cocooning her and making her stronger. Since the day I told her that the man who raped me was her father, and now, also my brother-in-law, I watched her struggle. It was as if we were in the third round of a boxing match, with only twenty seconds left and that was the last blow … but it wasn’t. It was, however, the one that left her on her knees and vulnerable with her arms tangled in the ropes. She wasn’t knocked out, but she couldn’t get back up, instead she was in limbo. Ditching her friends, her support system, and leaning on people who used her. Dropping the news of my breast cancer was the last blow though. It was the one that sent her to the mat … she was done and shrouded herself in misery and doubt. When she ended up in the hospital after being struck in a bar fight, I sat by her bed and prayed with more conviction than I’d ever had before. Then, I shamelessly and selfishly begged. I begged those angels—who I was convinced had taken a sabbatical—to come back and protect my daughter-to guide her, to enlighten her. As I watched her accept her diploma of freedom, I knew those angels had heard me because she was glowing. She was happy from the inside out. We’ve confessed our wrongs to each other (mainly mine) and we will continue to purge our feelings. It will be a bumpy road, but it’s the only way we can begin to forgive, and ultimately heal.

Unwilling to wait for the slow pace of the detectives at the crime scene, Derrick must work with Kate’s sister, Annie Jackson, to find the clues that will lead them to the answers they so desperately need. 

Will these two catch The Photographer? Can they bring a broken family back together? Will Kate and Derrick ever be able to have their happily ever after?

Rating: 4.5 Stars

I was given an ARC to read and submit an honest review.

What a great story about love, the loss of love and them finding it again. This book is the first book in a series and focuses on Cassie and Charles’ life. They are both in marriages with the love of their lives and they thought that love would last forever. However, they suddenly realize their spouses don’t love them anymore.
Cassie is married to Mason. They live in a small town where everyone knows everyone else and everything about their past. Cassie loves Mason and, in his own way, he thinks he loves her. Cassie loves him so much that she ignores all the things that he does and the fact that Mason makes her feel like a failure because she can’t give him a child.
Charles loves Vivian. She is the love of his life but their physical relationship is non-existent because Vivian is afraid. Vivian who is faced with a lot of obstacles in her life chooses to look at the negative and thus pushing her husband away. To cope, Vivian criticizes and makes fun of her husband to her friends.
Cassie is sent on a temporary assignment in another city and end up working on some projects with Charles. As they talk and learn about each other’s backgrounds, Cassie offers to help Charles save his marriage. Before long Cassie and Charles become more than friends and, like often happens in these situations, they hurt one another.
This is a beautiful journey through life and love with two well-intentioned couples. The story is well written with characters that grab your heart from the very beginning. Parts of the story are told from the POV of the various main characters. This technique is used effectively so understand their thought processes and the feelings that are held deep inside of each person. There are times when I had to yell at each character and I really wanted to put my hand in the book and shake them. So often the individual couples just needed to have an honest conversation because it was plain to see the love was still there.
My only suggestion (I can’t call it a complaint)is that I wanted to know more about the love story of Cassie and______. The book ended too soon. Don't get me wrong I was very happy with the ending and wanted more time with them. Hopefully we will see more of them in the future.

This is an excellent read with both tears of sadness and tears of joy, friendship, family and happiness.

Bound to You: Volume 2 (Millionaire's Row #2)




Five contemporary romance and erotica authors bring you the collection Inked—five full-length
novels centering around all things tattoos.
Punctured, Bruised, and Barely Tattooed – Jade C. Jamison
Kory McCallister has had her eyes on tattoo artist Stone Bowman for quite some time—so long,
in fact, that no other guy will do. Stone pushes every turn on button Kory has—he’s tattooed
from head to toe (well, at least she prays he’s tattooed on his lower half); he’s hot; he’s funny
and charming; and he’s also mysterious. So when Kory’s friends dare her to ask Stone out on a
date, she can’t believe she actually finds the guts to do it.
More surprising? He takes her up on the offer.
She discovers that, while his past might not be quite as dark or mysterious as she’d imagined, it’s
bigger than she’d expected, and it’s something she will need to contend with if she decides she
wants to keep him around to color her life for good.
Shattered Strings – JM Walker
Evancroft. This one word means everything to me. My band. My heart. My life. Without the
music, I am nothing. I don’t exist. When we play, we are one. We are in control.
On stage I am a woman. Powerful. Dominating. Forcing the crowd to submit to my words. Off
stage? I am the complete opposite. Innocent.
Jace Croft. He is the oil to my water. The darkness to my light. My band mate. My best friend.
One unexpected night together unleashes new feelings that we both try to ignore but the band
comes first. It always comes first.

House of Payne – Stacy Gail
Life is supposedly what you make of it, but that’s crap as far as 3D artist, Becks Delgado is
concerned. She never wanted her brother to die in a car accident... or to be the one who was
behind the wheel. Her external scars are nothing compared to the raw wounds inside, and death
seems to be the only way to find peace.
Sebestian Payne took the concept of a tattoo parlor and transformed it into a sophisticated gallery
of living art. The House Of Payne now caters to the rich and infamous, has garnered a worldwide
following, and is run by Sebastian with an iron fist. He knows Becks is exactly what The House
Of Payne needs, but there’s a problem. The accident that changed her life left its mark on him as
well, and whether he likes it or not, it’s time to put his House in order.

Sunny and 75 – Scarlett Metal
Julia had the perfect life...or so she thought. On the eve of her wedding, her world came
crashing down on her. She escaped it all, heading out on the trip that was planned as a
Aiden was living the dream, working as the head bartender at a resort on Punta Cana. Every day,
he fights the demons of his past as a Marine, even in the midst of paradise.
He comes to Julia's rescue one night and after numerous run in, start spending time together.
Things get physical quickly, but is there more to their relationship? What happens when Julia
has to head back to reality? Will Aiden join her or is he unable to get past the memories back

Reckless Abandonment – K. Pinson
Cohen Archer, a fresh faced kid new to Sunnydaze Trailer Park, begins a new life with his
recently widowed mother. When Cohen spots his new neighbor Brynn Jenkins crying at a
weathered picnic table in the middle of the courtyard, his life is forever altered. Who knew an
eight year old was capable of love at first sight? Falling into a protective role, Cohen races to the
rescue every time Brynn calls. But he isn’t the only one.
Brynn and Ariana Jenkins don’t live a life of grandeur. Their alcoholic, drug abusing mother is
the very definition of “Trailer Trash,” but Brynn never has to take the abuse their mother doles
out. Ariana takes it all so that her little sister can live a normal life, ultimately causing Ariana to
harden and become difficult to love.
As years pass by, Cohen’s feelings only grow stronger for Brynn, but hers remain the same. Best
friends, nothing more. After years of pursuing Brynn, Cohen realizes that she is nothing like the
girl he had fallen for when they were children. Brynn’s main aspiration is to have a good time
and she falls in with a dangerous crew in the fast lane. Everyone from her former life falls off
her radar. It is only then that Cohen sees Ariana in a different light and realizes that she is really
the other half to his whole. He doesn’t need to protect her; he just needs to complete her.
Ariana has always loved Cohen from afar, not trusting herself and the cross she bears to be
strong enough to give him the love he so desperately yearns. He finally cracks her tough exterior
just as tragedy strikes. When Cohen is pulled back into Brynn with reckless abandon, every
other relationship he built falls apart at his feet.
This is a gripping tale of three very different lives intertwining to create a perfect blend of
despair, growth and love in every stage.

to the next, and she’s decided she likes it so much she wants to stay...although travel is not out

and four children. She is working on becoming a crazy cat lady. Okay, so maybe not.
Still want more? Jade has a bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Theater, a master’s
degree in English, and a master of fine arts in Creative Writing. Obviously, she loves school
and the student loan folks love her. She works in human services by day, teaches English and

like a fiend. Someday soon, she’ll narrow it down to just writing, but let’s get all those kids off

Author Bio:
For those who do not know me, I am the author of romance novel Impulses and the upcoming
romantic suspense/mystery trilogy, The Dark Evoke Series.
Raised in a creative family, witnessing one another expressing themselves through creativity,
albeit musically or through a form of literature, it was only a matter of time before my passion for
devising characters and their unique stories in their own world, began to form and grow. From
there the seed was sown and flourished into a young girls dream.Throughout the years I have
often toyed with the idea of pursuing this path, yet unknowing where to begin. There are so many
routes in this day and age to help get from A to B, that the dream was both tangible and terrifying.
So with that, and after a few months of kicking myself into gear thanks to a certain someone, I
decided to self­publish, and that decision was most probably one of the best decisions I have ever
made.I am a mother of a five year old son who knows how to keep me on my toes, and married
my high school sweetheart 6 years ago. I can't express how supportive and understanding both
have been while pursuing this journey.If I'm not writing I'm constantly thinking about writing and
can be found either chasing my son around, or with my nose in book.
