Jaguar series





Sometimes the person you lie to the most is yourself.

The Silver Six have blown the Renegades’ underground compound to bits, killing several of Rebecca’s best friends in the process—and to her horror, the boy Rebecca had convinced herself she loved for all these years was the one to betray them all. At the same time, General Specs, the company Liam was once slated to inherit, has developed a superintelligent robot called Jaguar which is quickly becoming godlike in her omniscience. As the remaining Renegades flee to their last bastion of safety in the Caribbean, Liam makes his way back to London, in a last ditch effort to convince his father to destroy Jaguar before it’s too late.

Rebecca, meanwhile, finally understands her own heart: she never loved Andy. He was merely a ‘safe’ choice who would never require anything of her. Liam, on the other hand, exasperating as he was, had seen past her defenses. All of his teasing and provoking had been his attempt to get her to be real with him—but the more he made her feel, the further she had retreated. She had even substituted her companion bot Madeline for real, deep human friendships, and for the same reason: she’d been avoiding love to protect herself from another loss like the one she had experienced when her father was killed for the Renegades’ cause. Ironically, she only realizes this once Liam is on his way to a similar fate.  But she’ll be damned if she lets him go without a fight.

This high stakes conclusion to the Uncanny Valley Trilogy envisions a world not too far off from our own, in which superintelligence is a reality, humanoid bots have supplanted human power and influence, and there are eyes watching and reporting our every move. If humanity is to survive, the Renegades will have to galvanize support across the globe, under the radar—and it will require every last bit of ingenuity they possess. But is attempting to outwit a superintelligent being really the answer? Or will it require something much more fundamentally human?

This is the third book in this series. 
Make sure you get all three books, so you don't miss anything!!!

Day 4!!



Arabella Sheraton grew up on a diet of Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, and many other writers of that period. From Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer, Arabella has found both enjoyment and inspiration in sparkling, witty Regency novels. She also loves history and generally finds the past more fascinating than the future. Arabella wrote her first Regency romance to entertain her aged mom who loved the genre. Arabella is honoured to share the adventures of her heroes and heroines with readers.








In this delightful traditional Regency romance, Miss Diana Dashwood accepts an invitation to Lady Prescott's Christmas party at Camden House, in the countryside. But things do not go quite as she imagined. Through an unexpected event, she is forced to spend the night in a woodsman's hut with one of the guests. What a scandal! 
Of course, Sir Gareth Blakely must propose, and he does. Unfortunately, Miss Diana Dashwood has already been engaged to and broken off her engagement from Sir Gareth Blakely after a bitter quarrel. Is it likely she will bow to social pressure and accept his proposal, one made only to save her reputation, and if they marry, does their union stand a chance of survival? 
And what about the pretty heiress, Miss Jemima Plymstock, whom everyone thinks is the lady Sir Gareth had his eye upon? Headstrong and proud, Miss Diana Dashwood is caught in a dreadful dilemma. A must-read for Regency fans!



Snippet:

“Sir Gareth Blakely, ma’am,” Patsy whispered in tones of awe as she cast a terrified glance at Diana.
Mama, who’d been dozing in her chair, her lace cap askew, opened her eyes and looked up, startled. “What? What did you say about Sir Gareth, Patsy?”
Diana froze. Impossible. He could not be here. He would never come here, not after what had transpired between them. She took refuge in indignation. How inconsiderate of him to just spring a visit upon them, knowing there was no reason for any further communication. Any man with a shred of decorum would have penned a polite note and asked to make a suitable time at their convenience. What did he want after all this time?
She opened her mouth, but no words came out. The book she’d been trying to read slipped from her fingers and fell to the floor. She leaned down to pick it up. Just the simple action made her head swim.

Day 3!! 🎁




Laura L. Walker grew up in a large family in the beautiful Gila Valley of southern Arizona. From the time Laura was young, she spent hours drawing characters on paper and fantasizing about their adventures. Life became more serious, however, when she met her own hero at Northern Arizona University and they later became the parents of six children. 

In between spurts of grocery shopping, sewing costumes or quilts, transporting kids to practices, and making dinner, Laura still enjoys putting her imagination to good use. She is the author of seven novels and three novellas.








"Nineteen-year-old Felicity Everstone is living her dream while attending college and serving alongside her parents in the North Atlanta Georgia Mission for the LDS Church--not to mention dating a charming guy who sweeps her off her feet. But when she is unexpectedly sent home to Idaho to care for her nephew through her sister-in-law's difficult pregnancy, and the friend she has been sharing the gospel with no longer wants to pursue that path, everything that once brought light and joy into her life nearly flickers out. Until she meets her good-looking but solemn neighbor, Erik.

Erik Cannon has already lost the love of his life. Now, as a young, successful businessman, making money seems to be his God-given talent, but he can no longer ignore the emptiness he feels inside. He needs to find purpose and meaning in his life once again. When his best friend's sister comes to help her family through a crisis, Erik's heart is reawakened. He senses this is a second chance at love for him, and that he and Felicity might be able to build a beautiful life together--until her old boyfriend comes back into the picture.

When darkness settles over Erik and Felicity's path, will their emerging love be enough to light the way?"




Snippet:

Erik quickly placed a few split logs into the grate and lit a match. After stoking the fire, he turned to see that Felicity’s face was pale and her lips—well, they weren’t the cinnamon red he’d expected to see. In fact, they were a little on the bluish side. His fists clenched. As soon as he could, he was going to have a talk with Dustin about sending his sister outside to have her nightly recaps with her boyfriend.
Ignoring the strange feeling of having a female in his home again, he went to work fixing a cup of hot chocolate. When the microwave dinged, letting him know the water was ready, he poured a packet of powdered hot chocolate mix into a mug and stirred, then he brought it over to her. “Here,” he said, nodding in satisfaction when she wrapped both hands around it.
“Th-thanks.”
But then his eyes bugged out when he noticed which mug he had given her. It was red and part of a set. On the front were the words: He captured my heart. The other mug that belonged to the set said: She captured my soul. He’d bought those mugs for Brooke on a whim one day when she’d sent him to the store for something else.
“Uh, I’ll be right back.” He’d just remembered his groceries. He skipped down the stairs and grabbed them before turning back the way he’d come. Looking in on Felicity again, he saw her take a sip. Then another. Good.
Silence reigned. That was, until Erik’s phone rang. Glancing at the number, he picked it up and said in a fractious tone, “Yeah, Dustin?”
Dustin didn’t even offer a greeting before he asked, “Have you seen my sister? She said she was going to step outside for a few minutes, but it’s been over a half hour. And now she’s not there!”
They must have just missed each other. If Erik wasn’t so worried about Felicity, he might have smiled about that. “Yeah, she’s up here, having a cup of hot chocolate with me.”
Surprise tinged Dustin’s voice. “Really, man? How did that happen? I thought she was going to talk to her boyfriend like she usually does.”
“Yeah, about that,” Erik drawled, sliding his gaze toward Felicity. Even though she took another sip, longer this time, she seemed to be aware of his and her brother’s conversation. Their gazes locked, and Erik’s heart thumped wildly in his chest. She had two of the prettiest eyes he’d ever seen, with long lashes that swept down and back up to reveal the regret she must be feeling, mixed with gratitude for what he’d done.
That look carried its own kind of torture. At this moment, he’d be willing to jump off a building to save her.
