You are invited to join S. H. Roddey as she celebrates her newest release!

(following Excerpt care of Sugar and Spice Press)

Unemployed museum curator Lily Redway responds to an advertisement in the newspaper, thinking she is applying for a job. On the other side of that small, black-and-white box awaits two things: a fantasy world come to life, and a man named Rowan Keir.

Rowan is a man with many secrets. He is a shape-shifter, a descendent of old world mythology, and the guardian of a rare and valuable Nordic artifact. He is also being hunted by the god Loki and has spent the last six-hundred years outsmarting and outrunning him.

With the fury of Asgard on Rowan’s trail, Lily finds herself caught up in a real-life fantasy story, a love triangle, and an ages-old war that pitches her into a different world and one very hard truth:

All is fair in love and war.

About S. H. Roddey

Before she could read, Roddey liked to make up stories.  To hear her mother talk, those little squiggles all over every scrap of paper in the house were real words, and she could tell anyone who asked exactly what they said.  She has always lived in another dimension, far apart from the real world and the boredom it holds.

From a very early age she found herself drawn into dark worlds filled with mystery and intrigue.  By age ten she was reading every horror novel she could steal from her brothers, and in high school she was rarely the life of the party with her terrifying tales that left her peers sleeping with the lights on for weeks at a time.

And not much has changed since then.  Left to her own devices, she plots interesting ways to seduce, frighten, and destroy.  She writes other things under other names, but those names choose to keep themselves anonymous for fear that bad things might befall them.

Mystery-romance writer Melanie Atkins is known for her New Orleans Detective Books and Keller County Cop series, and now she has a new story ready: ‘Emily’s Nightmare’.

From Desert Breeze Publishing:
Detective Emily Rawson doesn’t want children; she’s too focused on her career to give a family the time required. That is, until she falls in love with fellow detective John Cutter, forgets to take precautions, and learns she’s pregnant. She fights the idea tooth and nail before finally deciding that having a baby is exactly what she wants — as long as the child is Cutter’s. Then tragedy strikes. Will it bring them together or tear them apart?
