Strongheart’s Woman by Zeecé Lugo

Stronghearts-Woman-CoverTwo young girls close as sisters. Two lives to be lived. The world to be discovered.
One man to be loved! Victor Strongheart arrives to meet the princess that by written accord, he must take as wife. Annasai Songbird is everything a man could want: stunningly beautiful, sexy, bright, willing. Strongheart could not be happier. Her beloved cousin Setiyah is all nettles and stings, dark and dangerous as a stormy night. The lord is glad not to be marrying her. Until Setiyah dances in the moonlight! Under the glow of a full moon, the bewitching girl moves to the beat of tribal drums. Firelight lays shadows on the hollow at the base of her neck. The soft slope of her breasts glows golden and warm. She whirls, and the sound of the tiny beads woven into her myriad of braids is like the patter of raindrops on a summer’s eve. Lord Strongheart, his beautiful promised bride at his side, watches as one enthralled, bewitched. He knows well that the heart is a treacherous thing, and his has just betrayed him.

Author Bio:
Zeecé Lugo was born in Puerto Rico, grew up in Brooklyn, and lived in many places. She spent seven years in the U.S. Air force, taught for many years in Miami, and even spent a year working for the IRS.

Her early love was reading. The worlds of Pern, Middle-earth, St. Mary Mead, and Shrewsbury Abbey had an incredible influence and hold on her imagination.
She wrote her first novel, Daniel’s Fork, in two months, spending long hours at her task. During that time, she ensconced herself in her bedroom with her computer, barely coming out to grab a cup of coffee or a snack. One day, her nearest neighbor came desperately knocking at her bedroom window, afraid that Zeecé might be dead; no one had seen her for days!

Daniel’s Fork was meant to be the first book in a romantic trilogy. Little did Zeecé know that stories have a way of going where they want to go. Daniel’s Fork turned out to be a journey to the future past! It is a sexy mystery set in the future, giving birth to a fictional universe: the Daniel’s Fork universe.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My writing comes from stories that have been playing on my mind for many, many years. My male protagonists have been inspired by the romantic heroes of authors such as Karen Marie Moning and Christine Feehan. My heroines are always strong, can-do females. I grew up on a diet of Latin novellas where the main female character is always crying and praying to the Virgin Mary. As a result, I hate helpless, weak female characters. Setiyah kills viciously when she has to and so does Gabby. They look weak but are nothing of the sort.

Talented by Sophie Davis

b161When Talia Lyons was just a child, her parents were murdered before her eyes. Offered a choice between accepting their fate and exacting revenge, Talia trains to become one of the country’s deadliest assassins in order to kill the man responsible for their deaths: Ian Crane. Luckily, Talia was born with a gift- the ability to read and influence the minds of others. At sixteen, Talia is poised to graduate from the McDonough School for the Talented, where she learned to control her abilities. Now there is only one obstacle standing between her and the retribution she craves… Talia, herself. Her greatest asset may also be her undoing; while a formidable weapon in the field, Talia’s talents prevent her from shutting off both the mental connection she shares with her childhood boyfriend and the thoughts of a beguiling fellow recruit. But Talia can’t afford to have the feelings and distractions of a normal teenage girl, when her life is far from normal. She must regain the single-minded determination that has brought her this far, or it may cost Talia her life when she finally faces Crane. After a life spent being molded in to a weapon of war, will she have the strength to pull the trigger?If James Bond and Sookie Stackhouse had a love child with a yearning for vengeance, her story would be TALENTED: an adventure about powerful teenagers who aren’t afraid to embrace their fears and fight for what they believe in.

Author Bio:
While studying for the bar exam, Sophie Davis longed for the ability to read minds, so she could pluck the answers from the minds of those around her. From this thought, Sophie began to build a story and a world. When she moved to Washington, D.C. after the dreaded exam was over, she decided to see what could come of putting this story to paper. She decided right away that she wanted full creative control over her work. Without ever querying an agent, Sophie began the long journey towards self-publishing her first full-length novel, Talented. Now, three years later, there are four sequels to Talented; Caged, Hunted, and Created are all currently available, as well as a novella called Captivated. The fifth and final book, Inescapable, has an expected release in Fall 2014.
