NEIGHBOURLY KINDNESS by Jenn Matthews

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Jenn Matthews is here to share a story. Also, Jenn is giving away 1 ecopy of Sing for My Baby. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Jenn.

NEIGHBOURLY KINDNESS

We’ve always had neighbours, of course, but since buying a house, and moving into a fairly new estate, we’ve discovered the fantastic thing that is neighbourly kindness.

This sort of kindness is one of the major great things about living where we do. It’s a fairly quiet neighbourhood and everyone waves at everyone else when they pass—this seems to have increased in regularity since the pandemic. We’ve been called a few times to people who’ve fallen off bikes (wife is a paramedic practitioner and we often work as a team in this way) on the nearby bicycle path, and we give Christmas cards to all those neighbours we can remember the names of. Once, I got an incorrect and far too large KFC order and offered it to the local families.

We have a cat and two dogs, all of whom are very social. Next door, Jackie lives with her two boys and isn’t allowed pets due to her rent agreement. Very sad for someone who’s an animal-lover. We always say hi over the garden fence—we can see one another through the grapevine trellis—and exchange daily amusements.

Once we got to know her, we realised we’d struck gold. What a lovely person to have next door! If we needed an egg, there she was with one. If we ran out of sugar, she did the classic ‘cup of’ through the trellis to help us out. We began to send our dogs, Whisper and Cooper, round—our gates are very close together so social distancing/dogs running off wasn’t an issue—to Auntie Jackie’s, and they’d have a great time playing (and weeing) on her lawn (we don’t have grass). She even got them toys they could keep at, and play with, at hers. And plenty of treats, of course.

Auntie Jackie was also able and willing to look after our cat, Dana, whilst we were away. Dana soon found she felt just as at home at Auntie Jackie’s as she does at ours. She spent time languishing on Auntie Jackie’s sofa and generally being made a fuss of.

Recently, she’s been going round when we’re at home, which is kind of rude, but hey. She gets a break from the nutcase dogs. But she’s rather a naughty cat and twice now, she’s stolen an entire meal from Auntie Jackie’s kitchen counter, clearly meant for the boys after a long football session. But Auntie Jackie doesn’t mind. She’d rather have the occasional dinner nicked than have the cat visits cease.

We’ve also shared shopping a few times, as both households have periodically needed to self-isolate. Auntie Jackie is a teacher, and my wife and I both work for the National Health Service. Whenever one of Auntie Jackie’s class tests positive, she’s then forced to work from home and is unable to leave. In that case, we send her a text—“Sainsbury’s order coming tomorrow; do you want anything?—and she submits her requests. Sprockerdor Delivery Service then sends her a text back to confirm and gives her a timeframe. Cue two tins of baked beans appear on her doorstep. And Auntie Jackie has repaid the favour, when we’ve had to quarantine.

All in all, the neighbourly kindness of Auntie Jackie has been such a bonus during the pandemic, with various lockdowns and restrictions in place, as well as the extra care we need to take due to our patient-facing jobs. We’ve supported one another as households, taking in parcels, without the need to be physically close or visit one another’s houses (not including the meal-thieving cat). When we’re finally able to mingle once more, I’m sure many a cup of coffee/tea/gin will be shared, barbecues will be gathered around, and we’ll really be able to embrace that neighbourly kindness thing with no barriers.

Until then, we shall settle for checking on one another, and sharing humorous dog/cat pictures via WhatsApp.

FANTASY ROMANCE

 

WORLD OF BUBASTIS

Kira’s Rise

by Scott Kujawa

Available in Kindle Unlimited

What would you do when offered to explore a virtual world?

Kira wasn’t sure what she expected when she received the request from Clover to test the virtual world Clover created. Upon finding herself sealed in the technology blended with magic, Kira’s amazement thrilled her, knowing she’d be able to explore a fantasy world different from the one she left behind.

After creating her character – an elven ranger – Kira began her adventures. Rising to the challenge of being a member of the race she selected, Kira met the elder of her village, his daughter, humans who joined her as adventuring companions and lovers, a sentient sword, and others who were not as important as the rest.

The longer she spent in the World of Bubastis, the more Kira realized things within the virtual world were not as Clover designed. It appeared the combination of magic and technology caused the programming to become sentient, influencing those who adventured within it. It wasn’t long before Kira learned those changes involved tales of how the demons conquered the world, were sealed away, and desired to return to enslave the races.

With her companions, Kira’s rise to challenge them began. She’d need to gain power and advance her Ranger abilities to survive the encounters she was thrust into. Exploring the virtual world was not as easy as she expected. Surviving what was to come might not be possible, but she’d do what was needed to protect those she loved.

AMONG FRIENDS

I’ve always loved travel (do you remember, back in the before times?) and I’ve always been a bit of a contrary, pick-your-own-route, set-your-own-schedule sort of a person. When my first novel won a Betty Trask Prize in 2017, with £3000 to spend on travel, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it: go Interrailing. Interrail (Eurail, for folk outside Europe) is a travel pass scheme: buy the ticket, and take a train to pretty much anywhere you want.

Two weeks into a three week journey, and I’d stayed in cities in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, and Slovenia. I’d spent a night in Venice and now I was travelling north again, up into the Alps, back into Austria. I’d booked a bunk in the youth hostel in Innsbruck, a city I was looking forward to exploring.

What I hadn’t quite appreciated was how far the youth hostel was from… anything, really. Well, next door there was a Tyrolean cultural centre, which apparently served food, but it was crowded and noisy and confusing, and I thought I’d do better to walk into town and find somewhere quieter to eat.

I walked. And I walked. And I walked. The light began to fade, and there was nothing but blocks of flats. I kept on walking.

You know the acronym HALT – hungry, angry, lonely, tired? I had all those things going on. Granted, the anger was mostly at myself: how could I have been so stupid as to not to look at the map properly, to book somewhere so far from the city centre…? Tired: it had been a long, long day, after a long, long couple of weeks. Lonely: well, I phoned home, and conversation helped a bit. I was still talking when I saw lights, heard voices – not on the other end of the line, but right there, where I was. A little bar under the railway arches and, seated around a plastic table outside it, people.

I found myself among friends. Literally. This was a group of ordinary people who’d come out to spend an evening together. At first they were ready to direct me to somewhere else, but when I explained, in very amateur German, that really I just wanted to eat something, fast, they sorted me out. They ordered me schnitzel with chips, they sorted out the change, they bought me drinks, they shared their coats with me. And we talked. They wanted to know about my journey, where I’d come from, how I’d learned German… It was, against all the odds, a really enjoyable evening. At the end of it they called a taxi for me so that I could get back to the hostel safely.

I doubt that any of the folk at Bistro Mond are reading this, but if you are – thank you for sharing your evening with me; thank you for including me in your group. You made one of the most miserable nights of my adventure one of the ones that I remember with the most fondness.

Her ex-girlfriend never wanted to get married, but apparently she does now. Her supervisor is more interested in his TV career than in what she’s up to, and, of the two people she could talk to about any of this, one’s two hundred miles away, and the other one’s dead. Welcome to… The Real World.

THE LOVE PROJECT

by TB Markinson & Miranda MacLeod

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Can a long shot bring love to a couple of lonely hearts?

Joni Fisher is facing economic ruin. The once successful advice column she runs with her mother is on the brink of cancellation, and it’ll take a miracle to turn things around. Joni’s last-ditch effort to save her job and preserve her mother’s legacy is The Love Project, a web series she’s developing to bring the Help Me Henrietta franchise alive for a new generation. All she needs is a willing victim…er, star.

Hope Alvarez dreams of falling in love, but she’s always suspected she’s different. Physical attraction is a foreign language to her. After her only prospect for a meaningful relationship falls through, Hope has to face the fact that she’s completely hopeless when it comes to love. Can her favorite advice columnist, Henrietta, save her from a lonely future?

As the series gets underway, fans swoon for the lovable yet unlucky Hope, and they’re not the only ones. Joni is smitten, too. But she’s been down that road before, vowing never again to fall for a straight woman who will keep her forever in the friend zone. Except, what if she’s been reading the situation all wrong? Helping Hope make sense of her identity might save Joni’s job, but will it also bring her love?

Best-selling lesbian fiction authors TB Markinson & Miranda MacLeod have written a touching slow-burn romance about love striking when least expected. Read it today!

 

THE LAST TIME WE MET

What if you’re a nerdy med student and a womanizing rock star wants you as her next conquest—then leaves you totally humiliated.

Now fast-forward eleven years.

Sexy and magnetic, Australian rock star Austen Farleigh is at the height of her spectacular career. Her penchant for one-night stands is as famous as her many songs.

American Dr. Merritt Harrington now works for Doctors Without Borders and is at a crossroads in her life. Her last assignment in the Andes Mountains was harrowing, and her love life at a dead end. No one has been able to ignite even a tiny spark since Austen—damn her.

When they meet again in Australia, Merritt is desperate to keep Austen at arm’s length. But temptation whispers in her ear.

From the US to Peru to Australia and the highlands of Papua New Guinea, their desire for one another is on an uncontrollable collision course—with a force they may no longer be able to ignore.

 

HER PREGNANT RIVAL

Kapow: Book 4

by Renee Dahlia

Society expects them to be rivals, but what if the best revenge is love?

Fashion blogger JAMIE CLEVELAND only gets access to her trust fund when her father is happy with her actions. If it was just money, she’d walk away, but she desperately wants to keep her mother safe too. Obedience matters to him. When she gets pregnant, she learns that her lover Craig is married and she freaks out. Her family, especially her father, cannot find out. Desperate, she confronts Craig’s wife, and they argue. All is lost until she turns up at the hospital for an appointment and Craig’s ex-wife is her doctor.

When DR AMANDA AITKEN discovers her ex-husband, Craig, has been screwing a fashion blogger, she’s reminded why she filed for divorce. It’s one thing to believe that women shouldn’t be pitted against each other when a terrible man is to blame, but it’s another thing all together to see one of her husband’s fuck-buddies in person. But when Jamie arrives at the hospital for an appointment, she realises she can’t let her children’s half-sibling grow up alone. She invites Jamie to live with her and raise the baby along with her own two children.

Society expects them to be rivals, and neither of them expect that the best revenge on Craig is to love each other.

TODAY’S ANGEL by Kim Pritekel

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Kim Pritekel is here to share a story. Also, Kim is giving away 1 ecopy of Finding Faith. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Kim.

TODAY’S ANGEL

About six years ago, I was walking to the store, which was in a small strip mall. At one end was a used bookstore, and I saw an older woman, easily in her seventies or eighties, trying to pull about four tied grocery sacks full of books out of the backseat of her car.

I was about to walk by her, figured best to mind my own business, when something told me to stop. So, I doubled back and walked up to this woman, who was fairly skittish, and asked if I could help her. She said yes, so I grabbed all four bags of books and loaded myself up.

She led the way to the used bookstore, pulling the door open for me. I unloaded the bags on the counter inside and was about to leave when the old woman stopped me. She said words to me that I never forgot, and use, myself now:

“Everyday I look for an angel in my day. Today you were that angel.”

We can all be somebody’s angel every single day.

FINDING FAITH

by Kim Pritekel

Faith Fitzgerald thought that if she got an education and became a high-powered attorney in Manhattan, maybe—just maybe—she’d gain the attention and respect of her absentee father. Considering he was the only parent she had left after her mother’s suicide when Faith was just a child, she thought that’s what it would take.

She was wrong.

What she dreamed would be glamorous and satisfying turned out to be grueling and thankless. Since she wasn’t willing to play the game between the sheets, she was forced to stay in the cubicle jungle doing all the heavy lifting while the men got the credit and the rewards.

Deciding she is done, Faith packs up and, with the flip of the bird to the rearview mirror, leaves New York and heads home to Colorado. She has nothing there: no job, nowhere to live, no relationship with her father. Truth is, she barely has a relationship with herself.

On the drive home, she finds herself in Wynter, a tiny mountain town at the foot of the Rockies. Looking more like it belongs in a made-for-TV Christmas movie than on the map, Faith is utterly enchanted. When she tries her luck and buys a raffle ticket at Pop’s, Wynter’s charming café, her prize is far more than meets the eye—or the heart.

Enter Wyatt, a feisty, sexy southerner and waitress at Pop’s, who just happens to be married to a local sheriff’s deputy. All is not as it appears with the All-American boy and his Georgia peach.

A colorful cast of unforgettable and charming characters will teach the jaded attorney that sometimes to find yourself all you have to do is go back to the basics…and have a little Faith.

Artist Lily Andersen is excited to finally meet her online crush, the only person in the world who truly gets her. She just needs to survive the eleven-hour flight from London to Japan with a testy seatmate who by turns annoys and fascinates her.

Fate, upgrades, and a troupe of travelling clowns bring them together for a journey memorable for all the wrong reasons. Not only do they have nothing in common, they really can’t stand each other. But people are not always as they seem, and Celia and Lily are about to realise, there’s more than one path to love.

BODY LANGUAGE

by Renee Roman

Mika James is handsome, so what’s the problem if she uses her attributes to seduce rich women? There are worse ways to keep a roof over her head. After her latest lover calls it quits for a better offer and shows her the door by telling her she’ll never do anything of importance with her life anyway, Mika has a choice to make: keep searching for validation between the sheets or go back to college and prove she’s capable of more.

Professor Jennifer Long loves her job and she’s really good at it. Unfortunately, it’s the only thing she has under control. Her unrewarding yo-yo dieting and her mom’s unending suggestion that she lose weight because no one will want her the way she is has killed not only her confidence, but any belief she’s sexy.

Mika’s struggling with her coursework, but she isn’t keen on admitting she needs help, even if it’s from the beautiful Professor Long. When Mika realizes Jennifer could also use some tutoring—of the hands-on erotic variety—they strike a deal to help each other. If only their perfect sexy arrangement wasn’t so dangerous for their hearts.

A NEAR-COMICAL RATIO OF CARS TO DRIVERS by Thea Landen

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Thea Landen is here to share a story. Also, Thea is giving away 1 ecopy of Hunting Astrid. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Thea.

A NEAR-COMICAL RATIO OF CARS TO DRIVERS

2020 was a tough year for so many people and, like many others, my family did not escape it without a great loss. Shortly before lockdowns started, my mother was diagnosed with brain cancer. After a brief, brutal fight, she passed away less than three months after the shocking diagnosis.

I won’t go into all the particulars here since, as I said, far too many people are familiar with not just the grieving process, but all the little details that sneak up on you. On the very long list of “stuff that needed to be dealt with,” there was one item I hadn’t given much consideration to beforehand: her car.

I have a car. My husband has a car. We have my old pre-kids car as a backup. My father had his car, a backup car, and wanted to replace his primary car with a new one. (An SUV, whereas my mother’s car was a small sedan.) We were approaching a near-comical ratio of cars to drivers. Seriously, that’s a lot of cars. We are also fortunate enough that any money made from potentially selling any of these cars wouldn’t really have an impact on our lives.

About a month after my mother died, a close friend of mine got into a car accident. No one was hurt, thankfully, but her car was totaled. She and her husband were hoping to buy a house soon; not only was money tight, they didn’t want to take on a new car loan at the exact same time as dealing with mortgage paperwork.

My parents had always known and liked this friend. I called my father and explained everything that had happened, ending with, “Do you think it would be possible for us to give her one of our extra cars that we’re not using?” My father has always been a notoriously kind and generous person, and didn’t even hesitate before giving his answer: “Sure!”

Finally, amidst all the terrible things happening in 2020, both on personal and global levels, I could give someone some good news. I called my friend, confirmed she still needed a car, and made my offer. She was thrilled, and after she asked a couple of obligatory questions, we had the following conversation:

“So, how much do you want for it?”

“Nothing. It’s an older car that nobody’s using.”

“…You can’t just give me a car.”

“Sure I can. Watch me.”

Getting all the paperwork in order took some time due to so much being shut down in our area, but I eventually got to hand over the keys and watch her drive away in her new-to-her car. I know my mother would have approved. Now that it’s 2021 and we’re rapidly approaching the one-year anniversary of her diagnosis, I hope I can continue spreading kindness and setting a good example for my own children, the way she would have wanted me to.

GOING BANANAS by Anna Ferrara

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Anna Ferrara is here to share a story. Also, Anna is giving away 1 ecopy of Snow White and Her Queen 2. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Anna.

GOING BANANAS

My partner’s parents come across as strict, no-nonsense and conservative so in the early weeks of our relationship, I was perpetually stressed when in their presence, ever worried they would one day catch wind of what was really going on between their daughter and I and break all hell loose. That, until one time at dinner, in passing, while sitting stiffly while on my absolute best behaviour, I told her mother I ate a single banana for breakfast every morning (it was minimalism and healthy-eating thing).

That night, my partner’s father handed her a bunch of bananas to take home with us. It wasn’t unusual because her parents were always giving her food and things to bring home with her but the next time she went over, she got another bunch of bananas. And the time after that, we got more bananas. Soon, it was like bananas every week. Then, a full year of free bananas. And another year after that. Even after my partner declared she never wanted to eat another banana ever again, we got bananas. In the almost decade since that first bunch of bananas, we have received over 400 bunches of bananas. Free. Weekly. All because I mentioned, once, that I ate bananas.

I still eat one banana every breakfast (because there seems to be no getting rid of them these days). But I’m no longer petrified of my partner’s parents. Nowadays when I think of them, the first thing that comes to mind is bananas. The next thing is kindness. And sometimes when I catch sight of my partner at home in pyjamas, I tell her she looks like a banana. Without fail, she will tell me I look like a banana too. We now call ourselves B1 and B2.

SNOW WHITE AND HER QUEEN 2

When desire brings out the worst in all of them, Eirwen and Katherine have to seek creative ways to get to that happily ever after they once thought possible, before it slips out of their reach forever and always.

Gunslinger Sarah Sawyer has overcome her demons, vengeance-seeking relatives, and a loner streak as wide as the horizon to settle down out west with her partner, Jo.

But peace seems too much to ask for with the influx of new settlers, illness, and brazen thefts stirring tensions.

When a spate of white killings puts Native Americans in the crosshairs as the culprits, Sarah has a whole lot of questions and few answers she’s willing to swallow.

Driven by her desire to protect her town and root out injustice, Sarah reluctantly picks up the badge and seeks to reveal the truth.

Book three in the Sarah Sawyer series is an exciting Western that’s as down to earth as the dust on a tough rancher’s boots.

UNCHARTED

Pirate Captain Cinder is a terror on the open sea, striking fear into hearts wherever she sails. Now she has a new target. The vulnerable Princess Georgina should be an easy mark in Cinder’s kidnapping plot. But the legend of Captain Cinder is more intertwined with Georgina’s own history than either of them expect.

Treacherous storms. A mysterious pirate king. The prince’s unrelenting pursuit. Georgina and Cinder can only escape by following the uncharted course of their hearts. But just as a future together is within their grasp, Cinder’s past threatens to drag them both to the deep.

A reclusive mountain race. A paradise under siege. A problem magic cannot solve.

When the Jotnar’s mountain paradise is attacked by a seemingly all-powerful enemy, the race of giants must break their age-old rule and seek help from outsiders. They turn to the mage’s university to understand the threat.

Apprentice Wizard Idun Wintermoon and blade-for-hire Liss Forlatt travel to the wintery mountain stronghold to aid the giantfolk. But to defeat a foe who turns the magic of his victims against them, they’ll need to tap into strengths they didn’t know they had.

To defeat a magic siphoning wizard, sometimes you need a magic-challenged sellsword.

 

PARANORMAL ROMANCE

 

BASTET’S DAUGHTERS: UNKNOWN TERROR

Town of Unknown: Book 1

by Scott Kujawa

Available in Kindle Unlimited

Welcome to the town of Unknown.

Isabella never expected the horror of finding her rival injured and dying in the forest. She was not one to believe the stories about magic returned and creatures from the tales people told were real. When werewolves harmed Cassidy and threatened David, she hunted them. Working with those she despised, loved, and were acquaintances, Isabella made sure the beasts understood it was better to leave the citizens of the town alone. Along the way, she realized her rage for Cassidy changed, turning into feelings she never expected. Learning to love her rival was a shock.

Cassidy’s life changed when she was attacked and left for dead in the forest near Isabella’s home. Spying on her rival never turned out how it did when a beast tore into her, leaving her in a clearing. Learning she was infected and had transformed into a werewolf, Cassidy found her place with Isabella, once she shared her love with her.

Being best friends with Isabella and Cassidy wasn’t easy. David was the peacekeeper between the two rivals. His need to heal drove him to become a nurse at the clinic in the town of Unknown. This didn’t change after Cassidy attacked him, turning him into a werewolf. He was the pack member who would make sure the two powerful women did not kill each other.

 

THRILLER / ROMANCE

 

OUTSIDE IN

by Breanna Hughes

Cali Evans is a survivor. Her life hasn’t been easy, but her late father raised her to be smart, tough, and dependent only on herself and her wits. On the eve of her 21st birthday she meets Owen Bray – a beautiful and intriguing young doctor who equally frustrates and captivates Cali. That fateful meeting inspires Cali to make a better life for herself.

The next day, hoping to make positive change, Cali hops a bus for the West Coast but never reaches her destination. Instead, she wakes up in an underground bunker with no recollection of how she got there. Upon her arrival, she learns that she’s one of just forty survivors of a fast-spreading environmental toxin and that human life outside of the bunker has ceased to exist.

Tired of the vague explanations and half-answers coming from the people in charge, Cali takes it upon herself to investigate the real reason why she’s there and begins to uncover the sinister truth.

Trigger Warning: Some violence.

Kindness

I grew up in a small town in Texas. There are benefits to a small town because you know everyone, but there are also detriments because you know everyone. Like maybe when your teenage antics could be considered questionable, but that’s another story.

As a teenager, getting your driver’s license was a big deal! But living in a small town at that time meant we didn’t have a full time driver’s license office. They were open three days a week in my town and then two days a week in a town thirty miles away.

My sixteenth birthday fell on a day the driver’s license office was closed in my town. My mom got me out of school that morning and drove me thirty miles so I could get my driver’s license on my birthday.

Then when we got back home, she let me take the car back to school. I remember being so thankful she’d do that for me and feeling so bad ass driving my car to school!

It isn’t such a big thing now, but it was everything back then to a small town girl trying to find her way. Trust me when I say there were times when she wasn’t my biggest fan and they were well deserved, but on that day she couldn’t have made my birthday happier.
