Wicked Origins by Paula Black

I have no idea what’s happening to me.

When a tornado dropped my car in a land of short, wild people, I was shocked. With no way to get home, no idea where I was and no clue how to communicate with the muchkins, I was completely out of luck.

Then I found out that my car had landed on someone and killed them. Supposedly she was the Wicked Witch of the East.

If that wasn’t bad enough, now her ruby slippers magically appear on my feet, and slowly, I’m becoming her.

Now I need to get to Emerald City and see the Wizard if I want to stop the transformation and return home. But the yellow brick road is no cake-walk, and I don’t know what I’ll find at the end of this journey. Luckily, I have three brothers I meet along the way to help me on my journey. Each of them is vying for my affection, as if it doesn’t matter that my skin is turning green.

Wicked Origins is a modern YA Reverse-Harem Fantasy Retelling of L. Frank Baum’s original Oz tales.

The Heartbreak Cowboy by Mina Beckett #CoverReveal

Old flames burn hotter the second time around…

It’s been four long years since McCrea Coldiron watched Eleanor Mackenna
walk out of his life. He wasn’t ready for the marriage noose then and never
thought he would be. Single, free to do as he pleases, and running the
Promise Point Horse Rescue Ranch are the things that make him sure he was
right to let Eleanor go… This is until she comes back to town with a
daughter he never knew about in tow.

Eleanor knows just how badly McCrea can burn a woman and how persuasive
he can be when he wants something, so she’s more than cautious about
his charming words and cocky grin when she comes home to arrange the
sale of her grandparents’ ranch. But when a flat tire in a thunderstorm
introduces four-year-old Sophie to her daddy, Eleanor knows McCrea’s love
for his daughter is genuine. Can she trust it will be the same for her? As
the icy walls around her heart begin to melt, Eleanor must find the courage
to trust her heart or run away from the man who has always owned it.

Being shown what he lost is a wake-up call for McCrea and he isn’t about to
let Eleanor or Sophie walk away. It’s time to prove he’s a man who believes
in love and happy-ever-after.

About Mina Beckett

Mina and her husband live on a small farm in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of southern Kentucky. She’s an artist, an avid reader, a dog lover, and a miniature horses enthusiast.

Life in her corner of the world consists of long winter nights curled up by the fire, cheering on her favorite football teams in the fall, enduring March Madness in the spring and walking barefoot through her garden with a cold jar of tea in the summer ─ fireflies at sunset accompanied by a serenade of crickets and frogs, and lazy nights in the porch swing.

Book Reviews: My Historical Haul

I’ve been on a reading binge lately, focusing on historical romances. I have a soft spot in my heart for Regencies, not only because they were the first kind of romance novel I ever read, but also because I have a pile of degrees in eighteenth-century literature–so I’m always interested to see how other authors deal with the period!

This review is for three historical romances I read last week. They were all fun in completely different ways and well worth picking up and giving a read. Check them out!

Primrose and the Dreadful Duke by Emily Larkin.  Larkin may be my new favorite historical author. I hadn’t read anything by her before, and this book had me laughing aloud before the first chapter was done. Oliver, the hero of the book, is charming and lighthearted, the sort of character who all too often ends up playing a sidekick rather than the lead. Here, he’s the perfect match for Primrose, the bookish heroine who finds herself at a house party with a murderer who’s out to get Oliver. It’s a light mystery and a delightful romance, and I’ll be stocking up on more of Larkin’s books. 5 stars.


Earl to the Rescue by Jane AshfordGwendeline Gregory is a bit of a silly heroine in this book, though it was nice to find a departure from the standard bookish girls who don’t quite fit in. And the hero, Alex St. Audley, is kind and charming and tries to do the right thing by Gwendeline. I didn’t quite buy the kidnappings–or rather, I wasn’t deeply invested in them–but I liked the book, for all that.  4 stars.


Someone to Trust by Mary Balogh. As usual, Balogh’s writing is absolutely gorgeous, drawing the reader into her characters with style and grace. I was delighted to discover in Elizabeth Overfield a Regency heroine over thirty. And even better, the hero, Colin Handrich, Lord Hodges, is a younger man! At twenty-six, he’s old enough to be on the marriage market, but when he falls for Elizabeth, they have to face some interesting opposition from their society–and their own hearts. 5 stars.
