Masquerading Our Love

If you’re looking for a sweet teenage romance story to read, then check out Masquerading Our Love by Audrey Rich!

Blurb:

Junior year has been tough on Thalía Reynari.

A new high school, trying to fit in with new friends, schoolwork, family commitments. With everything going on in her life, Thalía could use a break, an adventure.

So when Thalía meets Christopher Cooper, the most gorgeous guy in town, her life should change for the better, right?

Don’t bet on it.

Thalía and Christopher find themselves caught in the middle of a simmering feud that’s kept the two families apart for a decade. And no one is sure if young love will be enough to bridge this divide.

As they hide their relationship behind masks Thalía must decide if this new love is worth losing her parents’ approval.

Excerpt:

We stood, our hands clasped. Hope filled his eyes. “Remember, I’ll always be your lighthouse against any storm, no matter how severe.” He planted a kiss on my open mouth and winked. “I’ll text you after eight.”

The lights of his car disappeared, but I didn’t head in. Holding the column for strength, the one I needed to continue with this masquerade, my brain again went into overdrive.

What if my dad gets really upset? Well, at least now he knows him. Hopefully he won’t freak when he finds out; although he might be more disappointed than angry at our deception. What a potential catastrophe. He’s my own lighthouse against any storm. My lighthouse.

What readers are saying:

“Was transported to a sweeter time as I read this book. Got caught up in the innocence and complexity of pre-adult characters. And I languished in their sincerity. Have to applaud the author on a well-written adventure into first Love, and beyond. But even more… Thanks for reminding me of the purity of love at the apex of discovery. WELL-DONE!” S. Clarke

“This is a great YA novel!! I bought the book for my 14 year old daughter and it’s perfect! I loved the fact that it is smut-free but still filled with teen romance.… Kudos to the author given this was her first book. I am looking forward to Ms. Rich’s future work for my daughter to read.” V.C.

What other authors are saying:

The Christmas Angel Thief

I’m continuing my Christmas in July theme with The Christmas Angel Thief by Lillian Duncan. Beat the heat this summer by grabbing your copy today!

Zoe Adams has a secret—one that’s worth killing for!

As the country’s most infamous PK (preacher’s kid), Zoe chose to rebel against her famous father and his beliefs. Instead, she lived the party lifestyle with the rich and famous of Hollywood until she disappeared after witnessing a crime. After more than three years of running and hiding, all she wants is to go home for Christmas but knows that can never happen—if she wants to stay alive.

Ex-FBI agent, Marco Bernstein traded his gun in for a Bible. His path crosses with Zoe’s in a most unusual way. When he recognizes her, he makes a promise to get her home for Christmas

Someone else is just as determined to make sure Zoe never gets home alive so keeping that promise turns out to be more difficult than Marco ever imagined—and even more dangerous!

Calling All Authors!

Hey, everyone! Fellow author, Armand Rosamilia, needs your help with his event: Authors Supporting Our Troops. Please read on for more information.

What ‪#‎ASOT2015‬ still needs in order…

1. Soldier addresses in remote areas. If you know of a soldier (friend, family, etc.) you are in contact with, and they are interested in receiving books to hand out to their unit, please let me know in a private message on Facebook or at armandrosamilia@gmail.com

2. More author-signed books. From the authors themselves or their publishers. I’m getting too many requests again for people trying to send me their used books. We’re ONLY interested in author-signed books for this event, and won’t be doing it any other way for years to come. I appreciate the enthusiasm but I have a focused goal. You also need to send me a Faceobook private message or e-mail (see 1. above) for my home address to send books to. I don’t post it online and don’t want it ever posted online.

3. Donations for the huge shipping cost. We are right on schedule with what we’re going to ship out in the coming weeks and what we need to pay for it. The #ASOT2015 shirts have been successful, and we’ll add another new shirt up tonight if possible. While I love getting in PayPal and checks (and some cash) donations, I think it is cooler to see people buying a shirt to proudly wear and to have something else to remember this great event. But however you want to help is fine with me!

4. More eyes on the event, especially your author friends. Every day I get another couple of authors who just found out about the program and ask for the address. So many never knew about it last year. I’d love to have more people aware of this program so I can flood Kuwait, Afghanistan, etc. with author-signed books for the soldiers who need a distraction. I ask everyone to please take a minute to invite your author friends or those who would be interested in also sharing the event and/or sending in a donation to help.
