The Caged Butterfly - Book Tour

THE CAGED BUTTERFLY by Marian L. Thomas, Women's Fiction, 307 pp., $5.99 (Kindle)

Author: Marian L. Thomas
Publisher: L.B. Publishing
Pages: 307
Genre: Women’s Fiction

Who Would Think That One Act of Love Could Affect Four Generations?
On December 29, 1930, Mildred "Millie" Mayfield gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Addie. Millie teaches Addie three things that she feels matters most in life; inner beauty, reading books and giving your “special something’ only to the man you marry. Addie lives up to the first two. On one autumn night in 1949, Addie falls for the irresistible red curls and vibrant green eyes of a young man from the other side of the railroad tracks. Neither knowing that the consequences of their love would have lasting effects. Known as one of the greatest white jazz pianists in New York, Timmy Taylor never had a reason to question his identity – until truth and betrayal strike. Will Timmy be able to push past the pain? Beautiful and talented, Nina Taylor inherited her father's gift, but not his looks. Certain that's how he made it big, she dives deep into an obsession that could be deadly. Will Nina learn to love the skin she’s in before it’s too late? Spanning from 1920 to 1996, this captivating tale of secrets, betrayal, and forgiveness will pull at the strings of your heart, and keep you turning pages while you pray for a happy ending.

I want you to laugh a lot. I believe that laughing is like a sweet-smelling aroma for the soul and the heart. I used to laugh all the time. Back when life was good and innocent, and I was good and innocent.

Don’t prove my dream a lie.

Don’t be a caged butterfly.

Become something and someone that is even better than what I could see.

I don’t know what your new parents will call you, but in my heart, I whispered Thomas Gray Livingston III in your ears, if you be a boy. Mama thinks that you are and like I said before, she ain’t never wrong.

If I could give you one piece of advice, I’d tell you this—love the skin you’re in.

Trade Paperback | 252 pages
ISBN 9781635114065, 1635114063 Digital ASIN: B07FDL54HG
English professor Lila Maclean knew drama would be involved when she agreed to consult on Stonedale University’s production of Puzzled: The Musical.
But she didn’t expect to find herself cast into such chaos: the incomprehensible play is a disaster, the crumbling theater appears to be haunted, and, before long, murder takes center stage.
The show must go on—yet as they speed toward opening night, it becomes clear that other members of the company may be targeted as well. 
With all of this in play, will she be able to identify who killed her colleague...or will it soon be curtains for Lila too?

Fragments of Ash
Katy Regnery
(A Modern Fairytale #7)
Publication date: October 1st 2018
Genres: Fairy Tales, Romance
From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a dark and twisted retelling of the beloved fairytale, Cinderella!
My name is Ashley Ellis…
I was thirteen years old when my mother – retired supermodel, Tig – married Mosier Răumann, who was twice her age and the head of the Răumann crime family.
When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched “work” he expected me to do.
With the help of my godfather, Gus, I have escaped from Mosier’s clutches, but his twin sons and henchmen have been tasked with hunting me down. And they will stop at nothing to return my virgin body to their father
…dead or alive. 
** Contemporary Romance. Due to profanity and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Fragments of Ash is part of the ~a modern fairytale~ collection: contemporary, standalone romances inspired by beloved fairy tales.

“Katy Regnery’s Top 10 Favorite Fairytales”

  1. Beauty and the Beast
I love the library, of course.
But more than anything, I love it that Belle sees beyond the beast to the man inside.
I love watching them fall in love.
  1. The Little Mermaid
Ariel is one of the most plucky, headstrong heroines out there, and I respect her for it.
She risks everything for true love.
  1. Frozen
Not all love stories have to be romantic (though Christian is pretty cute!)
Some of the best love stories feature family members who realize
that their affection for one another gives them the strength to conquer all.
  1. The Ugly Duckling
Like Beauty and the Beast, this is another great transformation story.
I am SO excited to give this story my own spin in 2019!
  1. Rapunzel
Who wouldn’t want that gorgeous, long, blonde hair?
Seriously, it’s the prettiest. Add the spunky personality of the Disney heroine,
and you’ve for a great character!
  1. Rumpelstiltskin
I actually came up with a modern fairytale based on this story.
It took place in Vegas and it was all sorts of seedy and sordid,
with a man having to give up his 18-year-old daughter to a man to whom he lost a bet.
Hmm…maybe someday I’ll circle back to it some day.
  1. The Pied Piper
Arguably one of the most terrifying fairytales.
Piper comes to town, gets rid of rats, presents a bill to the town
and the town refuses to pay. So Piper kills the children.
It’s horrifying, right? Vengeance is fascinating to write, though.
  1. Sleeping Beauty
Lauren Stewart did a gorgeous re-write of this fairytale called “Darker Water”
and you all have to read it. Plus, the name “Aurora.” So pretty.
  1. Robin Hood
Who doesn’t love a handsome rogue who steals from the rich and gives it to the poor?
  1. Rip Van Winkle
Ole’ Rip isn’t such a fun character.
But the “men in the mountain” playing nine-pin?
Sometimes when it thunders, I grin as I think of them.

Author Bio:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract, and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Forty books later, Katy claims authorship of the multititled New York Times and USA Today bestselling Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other stand-alone novels and novellas, including the critically-acclaimed, 2018 RITA© nominated, USA Today bestselling contemporary romance, Unloved, a love story.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, became a New York Times e-book bestseller.
Katy’s books are available in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

Coming Home to You (A True North Hero #3)
Coming Home to You
(A True North Hero #3)
By M. K. Stelmack
Contemporary Romance
Paperback, 384 pages
October 2, 2018 by Harlequin Heartwarming

She wants a temporary fake romance

Can he make it real...and forever?

Driving across the country in an RV with her terminally ill godmother was not Daphne Merlotte's idea. Nor was crashing the RV into a small-town coffee shop, nearly hitting local good guy Mel Greene. Now Daphne will do anything to keep her godmother from continuing the trip--even asking Mel to be her fake boyfriend. But there's nothing fake about Mel's intentions--he wants a real romance!


(Mel is not bothered to learn that his ex-girlfriend, Linda, is now dating Tom,
but Daphne’s assumption that he would care forces him into a surprising and uneasy revelation.)

She went on tiptoe and kissed him. It was a light tap of thanks, but it was still more intimate than they’d been since their first kiss. She must be really worried about him.

“I’ll be going now...” Tom trailed off.

“I’ll take these inside and freshen up.” Daphne giggled. Fake but cute. “Big night tonight.” Mel doubted she felt that way about their seventh trip to The Big Scoop.

Her disappearance into the motor home worked as Tom’s cue to mosey off himself. About time. Daphne must’ve been watching Tom through the windshield because no sooner had he cleared the property than she popped out.

“Sorry about Tom dropping his news about Linda and him.” She winced. “It must’ve hurt. I was going to warn you tonight.”

“I’m okay.”

“Are you sure? I know it’s one thing to break up with someone, but then when they start seeing someone else, it can hurt all over again.”

He now understood where she was coming from. “You speaking from personal experience?”

“Yes. Two mortifying breakups that I don’t want to discuss.” She banded her arms tight around her waist and curled her shoulders. Mel longed to unlace those arms, pull her tight against him and remind her that somebody, right here and now, cared. The problem was, she interpreted his every gesture as him “settling” or “faking,” and with Fran inside, she’d put it down to him playing the role of boyfriend.

“Is that why you kissed me in full view of Tom? So I’d look good in front of him?”

From her expression, he’d guessed right.

“It’s not that I consider myself a replacement, you understand,” she said. “I couldn’t compete with Linda. But, at times, it’s nice to have...anybody.”

He nudged her chin up until her clear blue eyes met his. “You’re not anybody,” he said. “You’re somebody. My somebody.”

That was it, he realized. The absolute certainty that Daphne was meant for him, and no one else. She was no longer just a resource to help him figure out his future relationships. Nor was she merely a temporary friend until next week or whenever she and Fran left. He wanted her now and forever. Daphne curled her sweet mouth into a weak smile. “Thank you for thinking so.”

Of course. As he’d feared, she assumed he was settling. How to convince her that his feelings were real? That they were together for real? He could kiss and hug her, give her flowers, watch romantic sunsets, have her join family events, do everything normal in a growing relationship, and she wouldn’t believe any of it because she didn’t believe in him or herself.
