Interview & #Giveaway with Rachel Brimble, author of Love's Debt!

Please help me welcome author Rachel Brimble to Reading with Holly! :)
Holly: Hi Rachel! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Rachel Brimble: I am a Brit living in South West England, near the famous Georgian/Regency city of Bath. Married to my fabulous husband for almost 15 years, we have two daughters (13 & 11) as well as a canine son who pretty much rules my life.
When I’m not writing I like to read, walk the English countryside, socialize or watch TV. Oh, and love a glass of crisp white wine whatever the occasion!
Holly: When did you realize that you would like to write and publish a book?
Rachel Brimble: I have always love writing stories ever since I was a child. I was the kid forever in the library or at home writing stories and then binding them with a hole punch and ribbon! I had ambitions of being a journalist in my early teens but eventually ended up working in a bank for 10 years. When my second baby was born, it was ‘now or never’ moment so I started writing and …

Excerpt of Banished Sun (Highland Home #4) by Shari Richardson!

Excerpt: Chapter 1 "Will you let me take you away for the new year, Mairin?" Mathias asked as we made our way out to the parking. The bell had just rung, putting an end to the last day of school before Christmas break began. I wanted to rush out of the building to escape the inevitable, "Have a nice break," and "Merry Christmas" conversations, but Mathias was moving disturbingly slow. His question brought our progress to a standstill as I stared at him, stunned. This was the first time he'd ever suggested we go anywhere together outside of Highland Home or East Hampton. I certainly wasn't going to count that ill-fated trip to England as a vacation, so what was he up to? "Just the two of us, or are you planning on dragging my entire family along as chaperones?" I asked. For over a year, I had felt as though I'd slipped back in time to the 19th century. Mathias was annoyingly old fashioned when it came to private time for the two of u…

I am so excited to be part of the Rise of the Infected cover reaveal and have author Monique Morgan here on Reading with Holly today with an author interview! Also do not miss the giveaway below! :)
Holly: Hi Monique! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

The eastern continents unleash a weapon that they believe will wipe out the survivors, but something goes horribly wrong, when the dead rise as the infected.
Holly: Which came first for you, the characters or the…

Excerpt of Chocolate Aftertaste by Liz Grace Davis!

Excerpt:
Nora turned her attention back to the reality in front of her. She hated arguments; sometimes she wished she could hide somewhere, just wait them out. Unfortunately, life was not like that. She lifted her eyes to meet Liam’s. The ice in his eyes had not melted. She dropped her gaze. Instead of flirting with her appetite, the large marinated tiger prawns made her stomach queasy, and the oriental noodles looked like neglected yarn left out in the rain. From the way he dissected his steak, Liam’s appetite was just fine. She gritted her teeth as his knife scraped the porcelain plate. Unable to bear the silence between them, she leaned forward and whispered, “I hate it when you ignore me.” “What do you want me to say?” He chewed the last of his food and waved for the waiter. “We’re done.” The waiter nodded and scuttled over to remove their plates. When the waiter was out of earshot, Nora hissed through clenched teeth, “I wasn’t done.” Liam took a swig of water, probably wishing it were s…
