Protect This by Cami Checketts: Prequel to Blog This



I'm so excited to announce the prequel to the Tenderness and Terror series. It's available now for only $.99 at the following vendors:

With five female college students on the missing persons’ list, and the perpetrator still at large, Natasha is nervous about dating anyone. But, it’s hard to say no to Tony, the hot graduate assistant she’s been drooling over all semester.  Too bad she’s not sure who to trust and all the men around her feel more like suspects than heroes. When Natasha gets into trouble and the man that should have been the safest…turns out to be her worst nightmare, Natasha has no choice but to fight for her life and the man she almost gave up.


Will protecting children throughout the world cost Natasha her own family?
Devastated by the loss of her brother, Natasha Senecot works to expose the dangers of Matthew Chrysler's violent video games, succeeding in bankrupting and humiliating him.
Chrysler retaliates and sends a hit man after her. Natasha is forced to fake her own death to protect her children, but after witnessing another tragedy, Natasha won't hide any longer.
In a race against time, can Natasha expose Matthew Chrysler before his assassin murders her family and shatters her world?
"Cami Checketts is a genius! She writes about topics that aren't widely discussed, in and out of books, and she does such a brilliant job of crafting these things into wonderful stories that touch your heart and remain with you for days afterwards.I sat down in the library and started reading this book, just for a little while. Three hours later the book was finished and I was regretting reading in such an open environment without at least 20 packets of tissues handy. There are so many emotions in this book, so many different layers of love and bravery and hope and I loved every moment of it!" Myra, Blogger, Pieces of Whimsy


Some men are beyond redemption. Alex is one of them.
After Alex Chakhota was blackmailed and manipulated into becoming a hit man to protect his sister, serving time as the FBI's assassin doesn't do much to ease his conscience. His next assignment brings him face to face with Brittany, a beautiful woman that believes he's more than the killer he's been made into. The road to redemption is long for someone with a blackened soul, and with lives hanging in the balance, Alex has a short deadline.
Detective Scott Bentley's days of law enforcement are behind him. When he's asked to host agents at his secluded ranch for an FBI sting operation, Scott cannot refuse. Ivy McMahon shows up with the team, and Scott gets more than he signed up for. Not only can she hack into the any computer system, she's found a way into Scott's heart. The trouble is that she's in protective custody and when the job ends, she'll disappear. Is redemption possible for those whose lives are scarred by the past?
Is redemption possible for those who lives are scarred by the past? With danger crowding close, not even love may have a chance to redeem before it's too late.

"This book was so good I couldn't put it down. I was fun to see so many characters from the first book, Blog This. I suggest you read that one first....by the end of the first book you start to like Alex. Yet, you want to hate him for all he has done. This book is really his redemption. You fall in love with all the characters even Alex. It is fast paced excitement the whole way through and such a great story! I was glad to see both Scott and Alex get the chance for love that they didn't get in the first one. Cami is one of my favorite Authors and once again she writes a really great book!" Julia Lance, Reviewer, Book Reviewing Rocks
"I cannot tell you how excited I was to read this book! Cami Checketts is one of my favorite authors. She knows how to write romantic suspense and I am always so drawn in by her books. I usually steam roll right through them because I cannot put them down. Redeem This grabbed me from the very beginning. The suspense is there from the very first chapter. There is a fantastic balance of suspense and character/relationship building. I could not put this book down!
Alex. Oy. Here's a guy that will make your heart squeeze. Honest. He is seeking redemption. Forgiveness. Acceptance. He's strong, handsome and yes, a bit dangerous. I'm telling you, heart SQUEEZE.
One of the other things I love about not only this book but all of Cami's books is that they are clean. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the no swearing/no sexual content.
Redeem This is the sequel to Blog This. If you haven't read Blog This yet, you really need to! Not only is it a fantastic book, it must be read before reading Redeem This."

Happy Monday

Monday Morning Blech!

Brighten your week with this easy, all-natural trick

from Lucy McConnell, and a box set full of sweet romances.


Of Love and Magic--on sale today for only $.99!
You can buy your copy here.

Have you ever had one of those days where your skin looks less than bright? You can spend hundreds of dollars on creams, lotions, and gels that promise to brighten your skin; or, you can spend a dollar on a container of Greek yogurt and have brighter, beautiful skin in a matter of minutes.
You'll want to buy Greek yogurt that does not have sugars or flavoring added. Keep it in the fridge. Then, when your skin needs a pick-me-up, simply spread a tablespoon of yogurt across your freshly-washed face and let it sit for 10 minutes. Use it like you would a mud mask and go ahead and put it on thick.
Then, wash it off with warm water, blot dry, and apply your regular moisturizer. Right away, you'll notice the difference. What happens, is the lactic acid in the yogurt strips away dead skin cells and brightens the layer underneath. It's a great way to gain that added boost for your day or date.
Excerpt from The What If Wish the final book in the Of Love and Magic Anthology.

Our eyes met and I caught a glimpse of something I hadn’t seen there before, awareness? Like he’d suddenly noticed–me. Not the best friend me, or the funny girl me, but the me that loved him. His breath brushed my face before we jumped apart. I wasn’t ready for him to grasp the depth of my feelings for him and apparently, they made him nervous.
“You cut your hair.” He reached out and fingered the short ends.
“It was…an impulse.” I gave him a sheepish look.
“It suits you.” He grinned. “What are you doing tomorrow?”
My wings fluttered. “I’m going to try to be a godmother.”
“Really?” His face lit up and a second later he lowered his eyebrows. “Are you a godmother?”
This was the one and only thing I’d ever dreaded about his return. This conversation. The words were so big they stuck in my throat. I shrugged and looked away.
“If you are, you are. And if you aren’t, you aren’t,” he said easily.
“It doesn’t matter.” I sniffed. Mortified that I would burst into tears in front of Adam when he had been so excited to see me that he came directly to my window instead of going home, I pulled my bottle of lavender oil off the shelf and struggled with the stopper.
Adam crossed the space between us and lifted the bottle out of my hands. He popped the top off, making it look easy. “It does matter,” he said as the fragrance filled the room. “But it won’t change who you are.”
My eyes widened. “Yeah, right. Look at you! You’re like a giant now.” I gestured to his whole body.
Adam’s wing tips turned a rosy color. Embarrassed that I’d embarrassed him, mine soon followed suit. We chuckled together.
“What I meant, was that it doesn’t change who you are on the inside. You’ll still be you if you’re a godmother, a tree fairy, or the Fairy Queen.”
I sprinkled some oil in my palm and massaged it into my hands, needing the calming effect. I was nervous enough that my thought just popped out. “Are you still the same?”
He placed his hand on my shoulder. It was light and comforting and sent waves of giddiness though my body. “I thought I was…until I came here.”
“What changed?” I asked, my voice barely loud enough to reach him.
“Stuff,” he said, his voice raspy.
“What kind of stuff?” I leaned closer, pulled by the overwhelming need to be near him.
“Deep stuff.”  Adam pulled me in for another one of his crushing hugs. “I should go.”
“But, you just got here and you haven’t told me about your trip and I want to hear about the ocean.”
He threaded his fingers through my hair. “Morana, I’ll come back.”
The way he held me close wasn’t any different than before he left. We often leaned on one another. He’d put his arm around my shoulder hundreds of times. But the way he looked at me tonight made me think that all the feelings I’d held inside weren’t mistakes. In a way, it made me feel like less of a mistake overall. Perhaps I did hold a purpose. Perhaps I wasn’t the fluke I feared.
Adam pressed his lips to my temple before he half-climbed, half-wiggled out my window. Once outside he stopped to wave goodbye before climbing down the wall and disappeared into the garden.
I let the curtains drop back into place and squealed softly.
Adam was home.

Loving Helen by Michele Paige Holmes


From Amazon Top 100 Regency Romance author, Michele Paige Holmes, comes LOVING HELEN, a regency romance from the Hearthfire Romance series. Revisit the characters from SAVING GRACE in this story of Grace’s shy, younger sister.

Eighteen-year-old Helen Thatcher grew up under the protection of her older siblings, Grace and Christopher. Living in their shadows and keeping to herself suited Helen just fine—until she met widower Samuel Preston. Watching Mr. Preston care for his young daughter and seeing his concern extend to her own family, Helen felt her reserve slipping away, as she learned first to trust him and then realized she had fallen in love with him. But instead of returning—or even noticing her affection—Mr. Preston developed his own tender, and unrequited feelings, for Grace.

In the midst of each silently nursing their broken hearts, Helen and Samuel are faced with a daunting task—reuniting Grace with her fiancĂ©, Nicholas Sutherland. Now it is Helen who must look out for her sister and sacrifice her own fragile heart, as she and Samuel pretend to be engaged. Helen finds the role surprisingly easy to play, allowing herself to imagine that Samuel’s loving remarks are sincere. As the time for their charade to end draws near Helen must summon her courage and tell Samuel the truth of her feelings, or risk losing him forever.

My Review:
This author has long been a favorite of mine. Loving Helen was a sweet and well-written romance. I loved how the author reflected Helen's personality in the storyline. You should really read Saving Grace first. I actually preferred that story with the feistier heroine and more conflicted hero, but both books are fabulous.

Three books for $.99

Three of my books are on different promos today and are all $.99. Fun stuff!

***Reality Ever After is available in the boxed set Of Love and Magic***

Pregnant at eighteen, Sydney Richland's happily ever after is in serious peril. Her grandmother's ghost can work miracles, but she also might ruin Sydney's chances with the man of her dreams.

"I love Cami Checketts! Her books never disappoint! This one really hit home for me. I made some choices when I was young that could have easily landed me where Sydney was. Luckily for me, they didn't when I was young and unmarried. However, this story really touched me and I related to it more than I care to admit. I also don't want to spoil the story but I also have faced what she did and felt pain and loss. All around it was an excellent novella and my favorite of the set." Julia Lance, Book Reviewing Rocks

Every stage actress wants fans, but what happens when one goes too far?
Emmy has the perfect life--a house on the beach, a successful career headlining the local theater, and love. But when a brutal murder brings unimaginable grief, Emmy's world comes crashing down. As she tries to pick up the pieces, she can't seem to avoid Josh, the new fireman in town.
Emmy does her best to fight the sizzle in her chest when Josh is near. But with the stalker still out there, terrorizing her and those she cares about, she can't fall for anyone--especially Josh, a suspect in the murder investigation.
If Emmy allows a man to get close, it's not just her heart she puts at risk, it's her life.

"Cami Checketts can spin a tale like no other. Love, suspense, thrills, she has it all, and Shadows in the Curtain is no exception. What a thrill ride! I highly recommend this book. 10 stars!!"
Sherry Gammon, author of the Port Fare Series
"Here's the thing. Cami Checketts knows how to write a good book. She knows pacing and tension and love. She brings those things together in such a fabulous way that I literally devour her books. Can't put them down, so bummed when they are over kind of devouring. The characters are real and believable and you connect to them, feel with them.
Cami is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors and I am always so excited when I see she has a new book coming out. This was probably one of my favorites so far. It was a good, clean book and a great diversion for my brain. Yay!" Aimee Brown, Reviewer - Getting Your Read On

Cassidy Christensen is running.
Running from the mercenaries who killed her parents.
Running from a scheming redhead intent on making her life miserable.
Running from painful memories that sabotage her dreams of happiness.
With two very tempting men competing for her attention, she hopes she'll finally have someone to run to, but can she trust either of them?
A light-hearted and clean romantic suspense, by #1 Bestselling Christian author, Cami Checketts, Dead Running will have you lacing up your running shoes and racing for the sequel, Dying to Run.
"Dead Running was everything I was hoping it would be, captivating, invigorating, and a page turner that I could not, would not, put down! Cami Checketts writes books that will make you think, and make you feel. She captivated me with The Sister Pact, and doesn't lose speed with her newest 'must read', Dead Running."
Sheila DeChantal, Book Reviewer - Book Journey
"Dead Running can make a claim not many mystery/thrillers can, and that is that it is also really funny. I loved everything about the book. There was murder, romance, family bonds, 5K training, humor, good guys, bad guys, and an ending that left room for a sequel."

Clean Romance

Finding clean fiction should be simple as there are many authors who write it, but neither Amazon nor Barnes & Noble have categories for clean fiction. If you are interested in a category that is specifically for clean fiction please send an email to the following links. I've written a sample email below that you are welcome to use.
Thanks,
Cami

Barnes & Noble Contact  - I couldn't find a true contact us button, but they do have a chat option that works pretty well.
Amazon Contact

I'm looking for more clean fiction -- stories that don't include sex as well as clean language and minimal violence. Listings for clean books in romance, suspense, historical, fantasy, and comedy would be wonderful. Thank you very much. ​
