A great story.

‘The Captain and The Ambassador’ is an enjoyable blend of science fiction adventure, space-travel and lighthearted romance, with some well-developed mystery and drama woven through the story, infusing it with greater depth and tension.

Regardless of the fact that the book is largely set beyond earth, Kauffman demonstrates the universal truths of human nature through her characters. It’s easy to see that a character in a book is putting other concerns ahead of those of the heart, but on reflection, the reader understands that this is very often the sort of limitation that an individual puts on oneself for one or more different reasons. It takes only a little empathy for the reader to want the heroes of the story to end up happy, but this also carries the reminder that it’s important for each individual, reader included, to choose the life that makes them happy, too.

Whether it’s because they have enjoyed them or because they haven’t, everyone understands the value and importance of acceptance, love, personal freedom and justice, and it is those qualities that make ‘The Captain and The Ambassador’ a satisfying and enjoyable read.

“Man-eating she-beasts need love too” – Sea Witch by Carol Ann Kauffman

#AuthorNetwork,#IndieBooksPromo, #amreading, #amwriting, #indiepromo

Dr. Laura Martin, Chief Extraterrestrial Life Scientist at The Touchstone Institute of Oceanographic Research, noticed troubling but subtle changes in the Atlantic Ocean. Before she could make sense of it all, her longtime assistant abruptly walked out. Laura hired young, handsome Scott Conner to be her personal assistant. Mayhem ensued, mainly because of Zara, the mermaid/siren/monster in the basement of the Touchstone Institute, who eyed on Scott as her possible mate in a plot for total domination of planet Earth.“The Touchstone Institute of Oceanographic Research is the most fantastic, exhilarating place on the planet to work. It is high energy, exciting, sometimes maddening, often frightening, heart-pounding work. It’s not a job. It’s a lifetime commitment. It gets in your blood. It grabs you by the throat and possesses you, body and soul. And it is work. If you’re not prepared to work your ass off day in and day out, weekends, holidays, your birthday, and your mamma’s birthday, leave now.”

James Stubbs

Man-eating she-beasts need love too

If you like romance with science fiction, you’re going to really enjoy this. It’s kind of like Men in Black but with USOs (Unidentified Submerged Objects) but the main characters aren’t government agents, but scientists (but they definitely aren’t afraid to use a gun or kill when necessary). I won’t go into the plot because that would spoil things but you get some real twists thrown into here with two very human characters, who don’t necessarily remain that way. And, yes, the romance is quite good once you get past Scott’s immediate and complete infatuation.

The villain of the piece, Zara, even comes across as sympathic… well, as sympathetic as an man-eating alien she-beast can be. If I had one ding against the story it was Zara’s wildly shifting emotions. In a lot of ways, it can be explained by the events in the story but it is very obliquely done. Also, even better, there are plenty of seeds in this story for a sequel and I really hope that happens.

Excellent!

A bit confusing with all the different characters and places, but exciting nonetheless. My heart goes out to Matthew and Devery.I hate that Lydia is under so much suspicion and hope the next book solves the murders as well as sees the young couple finally able to get married.I miss Karen’s time traveling and wish her husband would go with her. If he’s supposed to be the soul of her first husband, he should want to go with her to the Indians, I just don’t understand why he doesn’t.I hate that I’m ready to read the last book of the series, I hate to see it end! I love this story very much!

“I just can’t recommend this series enough especially if you enjoy clean romance, time travel and strong female characters!” – Belterra (Time After Time Novel) by Carol Ann Kauffman

#AuthorNetwork , #IndieBooksPromo,  #amreading #amwriting #indiepromo

The Time After Time Series follows a pair of unlikely lovers on their adventures through life and love, this time on an alien planet divided into four tribes. When Neeka, daughter of the Lord of the Warrior Clan, was out picking lavender in their vast fields of the West, she felt him coming for her, and she was ready. When Braedon, Lord of the Soldier Clan of the East, rode into those lavender fields, searching for the woman of his dreams, he had no idea if she were even real. But there she was, standing there looking up at him, smiling. He reached his hand down to her and waited. She accepted his hand, beginning their adventures together, changing not only their lives but the course of life and unity on their planet forever. An alien planet. Or is it?

I just can’t recommend this series enough especially if you enjoy clean romance, time travel and strong female characters!

All I can say is WOW–what an epic story this one is!! I have read a couple of other Time After Time novels by Carol Ann Kauffman and truly loved them all–I am waiting to get to read the rest of this series. I read somewhere that this one is chronologically the first–and I kind of agree. There is no doubt in my mind that these are all stand alone and I am living proof that they can be read in any order!!

These two just can’t seem to get it together–even though they are soul mates-until the very very end–and even then there is a zinger.

I just can’t recommend this series enough especially if you enjoy clean romance, time travel and strong female characters!

Space Romance with a out of this world cliff hanger!

If you love Science Fiction, Romance, Adventure and a cliff hanger out of nowhere, then this book is for you. Carol Ann Kauffman writes clean romance and with her details and your own mind, you don’t need hot and sexy, it’s already there. I love that about her romance novels. She allows me to enjoy the true meaning of the story and lets my imagination do the rest.
This is about two people heading home to Earth. Neither expected love to come into play and neither expected huge trouble from an ex. But when you are told on ship that your spouse has passed away, well that gives you permission to move on, even if it is with the Captain of a spaceship.
Well there is a huge change of events with one going to jail, one being shot out of the garage shoot and one who just wants to be happy with a new life on earth. There is love making in front of a huge window looking out at the vast space and stars. There is vengeance and madness and down right evil. But there is a mystery mixed throughout it all and so many surprises along the way, especially the end.
I love Carol Ann Kauffman’s work and highly recommend her books to everyone!

Thrilling.

This is a unique read, being a blend of science fiction with romance and a touch of mystery thrown in for good measure. The mermaid in this story is an alien and the last of her species kept in a special tank at Touchstone, a secure institute for the study of aliens. This is not the fabulous creature sitting on a rock, combing her hair and looking in her mirror while she sings to hapless mariners, she is much darker and way more dangerous. Laura is the scientist in charge and everyone wants to work with her, including Scott, who though over-qualified, begs her for a place. What happens next is unexpected and thrilling. Who will survive and who will not? A great read.

“Fluid, Charming and Bright” – The Other Side by Patricia Moran and Marta Moran Bishop

Marta Animated GIF-downsized_large.gif
Line Blurb

The people in the neighborhood called him Crazy Ed. He sat day after day on an ashcan in the alley staring at the dirty brick wall. Most didn’t know where he had come from or why he was there, but Ed was a quiet man with silver hair, and a sad expression on his face, so they left him alone. Few noticed him and most paid no attention what-so-ever to him.
Once in a while if a spare moment presented itself, they wondered who he was, until one day Ed disappeared.

Fluid, Charming and Bright

This is a small story of Ed. But more than the love story of Ed and Isle, it is another vehicle created by Marta after the In Between Times which is meant to transport you to a different and hopeful world. While the story is to short for one to thoroughly enjoy the beauty of Marta’s writing, like Ed, we readers regret coming back to this side of the wall as the story ends. Enjoyable read.

Belterra: Romance, Action and Beyond

Belterra is a step into an enchanting world filled with romance, action, and adventure. The heroine, Neeka, and the hero, Braedon, share a dream of each other but don’t realize the world-changing scale of the adventure their love will launch. This romance novel explores the heart and the soul, and the depths of what is right and what is wrong in the pursuit of burning ambition. This was the best romance/adventure novel I’ve ever read.

Exciting and informational book.

I really liked the time travel element and the decisions that were made for both centuries in mind. The facts and the fictions were intermingled to give life to all concepts. Great read for those interested in the western interested reader.
