Under Her Spell…by Eliza Daly

Under Her Spell Book Cover

Today, I am hosting a stop on the Super Book Blast of Eliza Daly to share with you her new book, Under Her Spell.  As part of her Super Book Blast, Eliza is doing some fantastic giveaways for a few lucky commenters.

Eliza will be awarding one $25 GC, and three $10 GCs for either Amazon or BN to a randomly drawn commenters during the tour. 

I am going to share with you a blurb, excerpt, and some information about Ms.Daly.  You will then find the links to go to if you’d like to purchase Under Her Spell.

BLURB:

When a series of failed relationships and business ventures have Monica Jackson doubting her self-worth, she turns to spell casting to attract positive energy and the opportunities needed to achieve her goals.  But can Monica’s belief in spells restore her belief in herself?

Monica creates a spell to find her soul mate, and one to ensure the success of her new romantic event planning company, Enhance Your Romance.  Monica is confident she has found her niche until divorce lawyer Reed Walker opens a practice next door to her office.  The anti-marriage slogan plastered on his office window, and his down-on-love clients, quickly prove detrimental to Monica’s business.  When his arrival appears to trigger a string of bad luck, Monica fears one of her spells sent negative energy into the universe and it has returned to her threefold.  Although Reed is beyond sexy, and she admires his self-confidence, she’ll do whatever it takes to get the universe back on her side, and Reed out of her life. No way is she losing another business.

Reed finds himself attracted to Monica’s beauty and her optimism. His job and his parents’ divorce have made him a pessimist, especially when it comes to love. However, he soon finds that Monica’s pro-love attitude is rubbing off on him, causing him to lose his edge.  If Reed doesn’t distance himself from Monica, he’ll likely destroy his reputation as a pit bull divorce lawyer.

Can Monica and Reed look past what they might be losing to realize the love they have found?

 

Excerpt:

Prologue

“A spell … ” Hope mused, then her face lit up. “If there’s a spell to attract a man to a woman, there must be one to repel women from a man. Right?”

“Spells shouldn’t involve negative energy. Sending out negative energy can cause it to return threefold. They aren’t intended to harm someone or make them do something against their will.” Jordan had drilled this into her head.

“I wouldn’t be making Kyle do anything against his will. I’d be warning women to stay away from him.”

Sounded borderline.

“Please,” Hope whined, picking a clump of batter from her long, wavy hair.

Monica let out a defeated groan. “All right.” Hope would never actually cast the spell anyway. When they were young, Hope refused to wear a Casper costume for Halloween because she didn’t believe in ghosts. She was closed-minded when it came to paranormal or New Age beliefs. And you had to truly believe in a spell for it to work.

Monica set down the bowl of salt and grabbed a pencil and pad of paper off her desk and handed them to Hope. “Write this down. It’s called,” she tapped a hot pink nail against her lip, “the dirtbag spell. Take one of Kyle’s socks, fill it with dirt, and add a photo of him. It’s critical you aren’t in the photo.” Monica paced, tightening the sash on her lavender silk robe. “Include something of his like … ”

“His new Rolex?”

Personally, Monica would list the watch on eBay and pray for a bidding war. But Hope, no matter how ticked off, was too timid to sell Kyle’s precious watch, and too frugal to risk damaging it by mixing it with dirt.

“That’s fine. Sew up the sock and bury it in your front yard. It’ll warn all women he’s a dirtbag.”

Hope poised the pencil against her lower lip, reviewing the spell. “Don’t I have to say something when I bury it, like a chant?”

What happened to being spell ignorant?

“Bury it in the moonlight while saying … ” Monica scrambled for a few rhyming lines, “moonlight, glowing bright, warn all women in your sight, the man who lives in this house, is a dirtbag and a total louse.”

“Perfect.” Hope sprang from the bed, looking inspired. “Kyle’s at work. I’m going over to the house right now to bury that sock.” She turned and marched out, a woman on a mission.

Monica nibbled nervously on her fingernail. Hope wouldn’t seriously go through with casting the spell, would she? A big part of spell casting was psychological, focusing all your energy on making something happen. Monica had never seen Hope look so determined, or vindictive. Hopefully, if she did cast the spell the negative energy didn’t return threefold.

What was the worst that could happen?

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Eliza Daly’s first attempt at creative writing was in fourth grade. She and her friends were huge Charlie’s Angels fans and she would sit in her bedroom at night writing scripts for them to act out at recess the following day. She was Kelly Garrett. Fast forward to the present, she’s still writing stories about beautiful women who always get their men. The journey from fourth grade script writer to published author wasn’t an easy one, but it was always an adventure and the final destination was well worth it.

 

When Eliza isn’t traveling for her job as an event planner, or tracing her ancestry roots through Ireland, she’s at home in Milwaukee working on her next novel, bouncing ideas off her husband Mark, and her cats Quigley and Frankie.

Come See Me at TRS Today!

cropped-rp-header2

Today, I’m hanging out with some other authors at The Romance Studio.   I’ll be giving away a $10 Gift Card for Amazon or Barnes and Noble (winner’s choice)to a randomly selected commenter.  Leave a comment and let me know how you are doing.  I feel like after three parties with TRS, I’m making some new friends! I will be featuring some explicit passages, so please be warned if you find that type of language or sexual content offensive. I would NEVER want to knowingly offend anyone. Have a great day.  I know I will!

“Book-A-Rama” at KP!

Books!  Books!  Books!  I can’t get enough books!  Whether it’s books on my Nook, or books I buy or check out from the library, I always have room for one more.  Luckily, last year we started sharing books at school.  We designated an empty cabinet to house books of all genres for faculty members to come “peruse and choose” when looking for something new to read.  The idea is to bring a book to leave behind when you take one to read.   I have been able to part with a few of my beloved companions knowing they would be going to good homes where they would be held and enjoyed by someone new.

During January and February, I will be partnering with Goddess Fish Promotions to host several “book tour stops” for many new authors.  All of them will be giving away prizes to randomly chosen commenters, so you will want to stop by if just to say, “Good luck!”.  Here is a list of the authors that will be stopping by during their tour, and the books they will be sharing with us:

  1. Jan. 8thManless in Montclair by Amy Holman Edelman
  2. Jan. 14thAway From the Spotlight by Tamara Carlisle
  3. Jan. 21st:  For the Love of Sarah by Hazel Statham
  4. Jan. 23rdUnder Her Spell by Eliza Daly
  5. Jan. 28thThe Angry Woman Suite by Lee Fullbright
  6. Jan. 30thHolding Off for a Hero by Gail MacMillan
  7. Feb.6thThe Boudoir Sessions by Starla Cole
  8. Feb. 26th Laura’s Light by Donna Gallagher

I Have No Regrets…

    Today is my 21st wedding anniversary, and as part of my personal celebration,  I just pre-ordered my copy of Joan Chandler‘s book, No Regrets from BookStrand Publishing.   It is due to be released on July 11th.  It may be purchased at a discounted price through July 18th, so go and check it out!  It is a sensual romance, meaning it is of the mainstream genre, rather than an erotic romance.  Your mother and grandmother can read this one, ladies!  It has a strong storyline set in Germany, so it has a fairy tale ending for sure!

Don’t think you’ll have to miss out on “hotness” with it, because, as her writing buddy, I’ve had a sneak peek already.  It will deliver a beautiful love story with plenty of passion on the pages!

If you didn’t get a chance to read Perfectly Imperfect, her first novel, you can still get a copy online from Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

Have a great weekend!

Here is a link to the site if you want to go ahead and order it while you’re thinking about it.  I promise you’ll have No Regrets!:)
