Favorite Summer Reads...and More!

I read a lot. Most is research because a writer writes better when they read what works. Writers, as a rule, do not copy the actual words in books they read, but get a sense of 'what works' and try to make them work in their own stories. 

I read lots of cozy mysteries, but don't write them. I also read quite a few regency historicals, but I have yet to publish mine (in the works!) I love stories about dragons, and have written several of my own. In fact, I created a whole series that I set in Scotland.

Highlanders? Love them and write about them, but the books I read that are written by others are always as different as night and day. Time travel romance and other paranormal romances get my motor running, which is why so many books by me use all these themes. Might I recommend these books for your end-of-summer reading?

My next book is a little off is a sweet romance. Yes, there is sexual tension between adults, but they don't jump into bed by chapter three...or at the end. Romance and the awakening of feelings fills the book...think Hallmark TV movies. 

Rescuing Christmas is available for pre-order at an introductory price. Please take a moment to check it out HERE

p.s. Heaven-sent Highlander
is now available in print. Check it out on Amazon!

Hot Summertime Travels

An opportunity came up for me to accompany one of my sons to visit my mom (his grandmother) in Florida for a short visit. I jumped, since it had been sweltering here in North Carolina. It was hot in Florida, too, but her complex had a pool!

Heavy rains during the drive down pushed us into a big store's parking lot and we got drenched while shopping (someone needed a bathing suit). 

The sun came out and the pool was relaxing. I also noticed the rain had brightened the flowers and leafy plants surrounding the property. It was such a pretty sight and I took a moment to photograph them. 

The rain arrived each afternoon, but we made sure to enjoy the pool early in the day. When we decided to buy lobster and corn instead of heading to a restaurant on the pier, we got drenched when my son dropped us off at the door at Publix. Mom mentioned that if we had followed through with those plans and had parked then walked halfway down an ocean pier to the restaurant, we would have gotten even worse!

The meal was easy to cook, since I'd lived in New England for decades before moving south, although mom's two pots only fit one live lobster each. We had to cook the corn in a lobster bath. It was yummy and I was thrilled to see everyone happy and dry.

We drove back to where the weather was still sweltering close to 100 degrees, but knowing we had enjoyed ourselves and made each of us rekindle a good relationship with my mother is priceless.

I wish we have a pool here in Raleigh, but I can dream. 

In the meantime, I will continue to work on getting my next book ready for release.

Nancy Lee Badger Presents Author Tara Neale

I invited Tara Neale to stop by and share her latest release with my readers. As I am the daughter of a veteran of WWll and the mother of an Army veteran, her books intrigue me. Take it away, Tara!

Shared Burdens is the third book in my Sergeant Mike’s Miracle Tour series. It was the first one that I wrote, going back later to add My Country Tis of Thee and Labor’s End. First released in 2015, this series defies genre. It is part romance, part military/war fiction, and part literary fiction. The series is my passion more than anything, raising awareness about the struggles of our returning service men and women with PTSD and re-adjusting to civilian life. It is a moving and sometimes painful story of life, love, and redemption. 

Highway to Heaven meets the U S Marine Corps – Is love or heartache in the cards when Sergeant Mike finally meets his dream woman?

Esther Samuels is a woman in pain. Her only son was killed while serving in Afghanistan. Now this old-maid school teacher is stuck in her job, while battling small town prejudice and her grief. She is more dead than alive until...

Master Sergeant Michael O'Malley is a man on a mission. After over twenty years in the US Marine Corp and more tours of duty than he wants to remember, his retirement plans are simple: hop on the back of his brand new Harley and tour the country, checking in on the men and women that he served with...and the families of the ones that never made it back.

The third stop on his new tour of duty is the small Texas town that was home to one of his best friends. The young Lieutenant, Thomas Samuels had been one of the finest men it had been his pleasure to serve with. Until an IED ended that promise.

Now Sergeant Mike is here to check in on Tommy's mom...and offer an extra pair of hands and a strong back for her annual Halloween party that is a mainstay of Sebida, Texas. Problem is the only thing smaller than this town are the minds in it. 

Can Mike just ride off to leave the woman he has secretly loved for years, to face their wrath? Can Esther let the only man who has ever brought her to life just ride away?

WARNING: This story has strong content and as such may trigger those with mental health challenges especially PTSD.

Her fingers shook as she fumbled with the door handle. She squared her shoulders and faced the man that was both friend and stranger. “Master Sergeant O’Malley, what brings you to Texas?” she asked. 
The man looked uncomfortable as he shifted his weight from one foot to the other, scuffing his boot against the chipping gray paint that covered the cement front porch. 
“Well, Ma’am, I’m sort of taking a tour of this great country of ours. I’m visiting a few old,” he paused as if uncertain what to say. Esther swore that the pink of his cheeks spread to the very tips of his ears before he finally finished. 
“Old friends, I guess. Men I’ve served with over the years. Or their families, Ma’am. I know that you will be especially busy this time of year,” he said spreading his hand towards the pumpkins that sat uncut in the corner of the porch. “Tommy always talked about the big Halloween party you throw for all the kids. I thought maybe you could use an extra pair of hands and a strong back.” 
Esther flipped the hook latch on the screen door, pushing it open wide. “I’m sorry for my bad manners, Master Sergeant. Please come in.” She stepped back as the man passed, motioning for him to take a seat on the couch that sat against the wall. She turned on the lamp that sat next to it. Its warm glow filled the room. 
“Thank you, Ma’am. I don’t mean to be any trouble. And I’m real sorry if I caught you at a bad time,” he said as he took a seat. 
Esther swallowed back the pain. How could she explain that every day was a bad time?

Whirling through Wilson NC with Nancy Lee Badger

Hubby posing in the Whirligig Park
One bright, hot, July day, I dragged hubby to the car and yelled 'Road Trip'! I have been trying for months to find a day to play hookey and draw myself out of the business of writing to enjoy a drive to visit... Whirligigs.

Our local art museum, where my latest paranormal book series is based, has a hand-built wind-powered colorful sculpture made by artist, Vollis Simpson, who is from the town of Wilson, North Carolina. It is about an hour's drive east of Raleigh. 

While waiting at RDU airport one day, I picked up a brochure about Wilson and brought it home. The photos and descriptions of the town and restaurants intrigued me, but the photo of an actual park dedicated to the artist and filled with his work made me want to see it.

Photo by Nancy Lee Badger

Only after we arrived did we find out that they hold a farmer's market every Wednesday and Saturday along one side of the park under an open-sided pavillion. This was great! Here we were on a very hot Wednesday to check out art, had a place to keep pit of the sun, and we went home with fresh veggies!

Wilson Farmer's Market
The sun beat down brutally so I knew we couldn't stay too long. I took photos and we climbed on the covered stage overlooking a grassy field for a little more shade. Seems the park also hosts music nights and people sit on the grass or bring chairs. I heard there was a museum dedicated to Vollis Simpson in the works, so we have another reason to return to visit the Whirligig Park in Wilson, NC. 

In the meantime, I await the edits from my publisher concerning the 3rd book in my Warriors in Bronze series. It is also set at the fictional Raleigh Museum of Art (based on the NC Museum of Art) to follow Heaven-sent Warrior and Heaven-sent Highlander. Try them!

Nancy Lee Badger Presents Author Belle Ami

Belle Ami stopped by to share her latest book with all my readers. I am super-excited to host a best-selling author! Take it away, Belle!

Thank you, Nancy, for hosting me on your blog today. It’s an honor to share my latest thriller with you and your followers. The Girl Who Loved Caravaggio is a time-travel thriller, historical novel, and paranormal journey into the life of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio one of the greatest artists of the seventeenth century. In 1969 his painting, the Nativity, was stolen from a church in Palermo Italy, purportedly by the Mafia. This theft sits at number two on the FBI’s list of important art heists of all time. My heroine, Angela Renatus, a reluctant psychic, and her fiancé, Alex Caine, are enlisted by the director of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence to recover Caravaggio’s masterpiece.

Book Blurb
Art historian Angela Renatus knows she’s different. She can see into the past—into the lives of the greatest artists of all time—are her visions a gift or a curse?

Angela works with former Navy Seal, Alex Caine, recovering stolen works of art. When they’re enlisted to solve the mysterious theft of Caravaggio’s Nativity—one of the greatest art heists in history—Angela senses her visions about the tortured artist go far beyond the missing masterpiece.

A web of secrets and lies entangles Angela and Alex on a twisted and treacherous journey into Caravaggio’s very own heart of darkness…spiralling the couple into a deadly trap.

Rome, Italy 28 May, 1606
     Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio sat up and glanced out the window.
    Merda!” He overslept. He was late. He didn’t need a timepiece to know what
hour of the day it was. The light streaming in through the open window
had turned the walls a shade of ochre—evening was approaching. He leapt
out of bed pulling the sheet with him.
    “Painter, are you stealing my covers?”
    “No, why?” Caravaggio smiled over his shoulder at the beautiful
woman in bed.
    Fillide Melandroni lay on her side, her long red curls tousled around
her. Naked and still rosy from their lovemaking, she was the most beautiful
woman in Rome. He bounded back to bed and nibbled her shoulder. She
was delicious. His lips wandered down the length of her body to her full culo,
the most perfect rump he’d ever seen. Unable to resist, he growled, pinching
her before he delivered a sensuous love bite.
“It is a sin to cover such a gift. Maybe I should paint you just like this, goddess, with your glorious culo preserved for all eternity. Botticelli had Simonetta Vespucci for his Venus, and you, Fillide, are mine.”
    She swatted him away. “Stop it! Sei Pazzo! You’ve painted me enough. I
have something else in mind. Painting isn’t your only talent, il mio maestro.
    He flipped her over to face him and claimed her lips. Her fingers feathered
through his hair and she kissed him back. Then he felt her hand drop to
his groin. He groaned, watching her luminous hazel eyes flame with desire.
    “Do you want more, amore mio?” She fluttered her lashes at him. “Show
me what kind of stallone you are.”

I love bookstores. I was interviewed by my local paper many years ago while sitting inside Borders, and I confidently told the reporter that I would someday walk into the store and see my own book.

Since Borders Bookstore closed soon after, that never came to pass.

I have persevered and was rewarded when the print version of my fiction novel, Heaven-sent Warrior, was chosen to grace the bookshelves of my local bookstore. Quail Ridge Books is an independent bookstore located in Raleigh, North Carolina. can order the print version of my books from Amazon, Books-a-Million, Book Depository, and even the nearest Barnes & Noble, but they have to order them then ship them to you. (trust's worth the wait)

If you are like me, you love to browse through an actual bookstore. Do not lament the loss of Borders, Waldens Books, and others, but do your neighborhood a favor and support your local bookstore.

Heaven-sent Warrior is available at Quail Ridge Books
(Yes, they ship!)💗

Consider ordering or picking-up a copy from the store at 4209-100 Lassiter Mill Road, North Hills, in Raleigh, NC. 919-828-1588

Nancy Lee Badger Presents Author Carolina Clemmons

I invited author Caroline Clemmons to my blog to share her latest book with all of my readers. How about a little bit of western romance? Take it away, Caroline!

Hello, Nancy. Thank you for inviting me to your lovely blog. I love to share my stories with readers. DEBORAH’S DILEMMA is book 3 in my Pearson Grove Series. This is a sweet western historical romance set in 1885 North Central Texas. The fictional site of Pearson’s Grove is not very far from where my father was born in Pilot Grove. His first name was Pearson, which explains how I came up with the town’s name. The series will have seven books, interspersed among multi-author projects.

Here’s a bit about the plot:

What can Deborah do to protect herself from the devil plaguing her hometown?

Can a young man who’s been away for six years fit into the community he left?

What madman is responsible for the murder and mayhem plaguing Pearson Grove?

Deborah Taber has been concerned by her inability to choose her life’s occupation. That worry was pushed aside when someone shot her brother and fire bombed her family’s newspaper, The Pearson Grove Gazette. She believes Trey Pearson is innocent of attacking her brother—isn’t he? She’s had a crush on Trey since second grade and desperately wants to trust him.

Wade Pearson III, called Trey, is happy to be home on Pearson Ranch after six years in New England. He trained to manage his family’s far-reaching investments. Nothing prepared him to be accused of murder or targeted by a killer. If not for quick action by the sheriff, Trey would have been lynched by vigilantes. He wants to help trap the real villain while protecting Deborah, her family, and his.

Can Deborah and Trey survive the threats against them? Will this clever murderer be caught before he delivers his terrible revenge against those he believes slighted him? 

Here’s the Universal Amazon

Here’s an excerpt from when Trey’s parents (Judith and Deuce) and grandparents (Marianne and Wade) stop by for a brief visit:

Deborah hurried to make tea and slice the lemon cake for the Pearsons. There were four slender slices left but only if she divided them carefully. She loaded everything on the tea trolley and went to the parlor. Her visitors smiled but she caught Deuce slapping his hat against his knee.
“I apologize for abandoning you. You were so kind to stop by.” As quickly as she could, she served her guests. Thank goodness the best napkins were clean, starched, and ironed.
Wade Pearson swallowed a bite of cake. “Say, this is delicious.”
“Thank you. I make it more often than I should because it’s my father’s favorite. We’re fortunate to have access to plenty of eggs from Mrs. Wallis’ hens.”
Marianne swirled her fork against the icing. “This is so interesting. I’ve never had a cake iced on the sides as well as the top. I admit I like the taste and contrast.”
“Six layers, my goodness. You must have spent hours making this.” Trey’s mother watched her. “Aren’t you having any?”
“I had a slice earlier.” She sipped her tea, hoping she looked as if she were telling the truth and tried to change the subject. “Isn’t it wonderful that Trey doesn’t have to remain at the jail?”
Deuce shook his head. “Not so wonderful when you consider that your shop being bombed is one of the reasons he’s released. Sure sorry to hear about that.”
His comment brought the terrible incident back into her mind. “We were horrified. No one was badly injured, but Papa and the men who helped him have burns here and there.” She explained why the men were with her father.
Wade set his plate aside. “That was good planning on your part. Neighbors like that are a godsend, and I mean that literally. Don’t believe he could have fought that fire successfully alone.”
Deborah hated the thought of him trying. “No, and he would have tried…. ” She paused in surprise when her mother came into the parlor.
“I’m sorry you had to wait in here alone while Deborah took over my hostess duties. I’m so pleased you stopped by. Trey is sitting with Jeff so I can visit with you.”
Trey’s grandmother—Deborah thought her name was Marianne—set her cup on its saucer. “How is your son?”
“We believe he’s getting better. He’s delirious, but at least he’s speaking instead of just laying there. At times, I recognize words.”
Judith Pearson—Trey’s mother—smiled at Mama. “We’ve remembered your family in our prayers, Mrs. Taber. Our children are so precious to us.”
Mama returned the smile. “Please, call me Olive. I’m glad you each had some of the cake. Freddie Pate almost cleaned us out this morning.”
The Pearsons looked at Deborah. So much for her white lie.

Summer Time Investments...and Books!

I trimmed the hedges while hubby weedwacked the rocks and tiny grassy areas. It is a humid morning, with temperatures headed to the nineties, but taking care of our property is an investment.

Editing my current book, the 3rd in my Warriors in Bronze series set in North Carolina, before sending it along to my publisher is also an investment. I strive to make it a complete and interesting story, and do my best (with my bad eyes) to make sure there are few grammatical erros...I mean errors. This, in turn, saves my editor's time and I will not need to revise it too much. My 2nd book in the series, Heaven-sent Highlander is selling well.

What are you doing on the last weekend of June to turn your life and the summer (winter, to my Australian readers) into an investment? Have you tried Book #1, Heaven-sent Warrior? 

As a reward for getting my work done, I read a book. My recently finished favorites are Red Shoes by Donna Steele, Relatively Normal by Whitney Dineen, and Misty Woods Dragons boxed set by Juniper Hart.

Happy reading!

Nancy Lee Badger Presents Author Carole Ann Moleti

I invited author Carole Ann Moleti to share her new release with my readers. Take it away!

Thanks, Nancy! The Unfinished Business Series began like most of my projects—when I was not even thinking of writing a story. While opening up a summer cottage, pulling dust covers off furniture and vacuuming up flies, I had the sudden inspiration to write a story about a woman who finds a trunk of old clothes and learns sad truths about the person who they once belonged to. This series combines my love of the beach and boats with a fascination about paranormal activities, and how past life experiences influence our fears, fantasies, and choices. 

The story line presented itself in another moment of inspiration—with a focus on the widows walk, a key feature of Victorian architecture, the spot on the roof where sailors' wives would go to watch for their husbands' returning. In Book One, Breakwater Beach, we meet Liz--and Elisabeth--as well as the other characters as the dual timelines evolve. Book Two, The Widow's Walk, is primarily Mike's story, though he shares the spotlight with his very troubled new wife. In Book Three, Storm Watch, all the plotlines converge in a tumultuous conclusion.
*a book blurb 

The Blurb-The Widow's Walk: Book Two in the Unfinished Business Series
Mike and Liz Keeny are newlyweds, new parents, and the proprietors of the Barrett Inn, an 1875 Victorian on Cape Cod, which just happens to be haunted. By their own ghosts. The Inn had become an annex of Purgatory, putting Mike, Liz, and their infant son in danger. Selling the historic seaside bed and breakfast was the only answer, one that Liz and her own tortured specter refused to consider. Were they doomed to follow the same path that led to disaster in their previous lives? Was getting out, getting away, enough?

 Excerpt: The Widow's Walk 
Look, for now, we’ll just stay where we are–together. If Liz and Mike are united, then Jared and Elisabeth aren’t going to be able to get in between us.” He brushed the tears off her cheeks.
She stared at him intently, fear, maybe desperation in her eyes. “We can only talk to each other about this. Others might use any information against us.”
“Who would do that, Liz?’
Her demeanor hardened. She sat up, raised her chin. “My son. Your daughter. Sandra.”
“You’re paranoid. The kids have no inkling about ghosts. All Sandra has are theories. She doesn’t know about your incident–or my illness. And I’m not going to tell her.” Guilt twanged in his gut. Sandra had come up with all the ghostly interpretations on her own, right?
Liz jumped up. “She knows about my injury. Maybe not how it happened, but when Mae went in there to get my things, she figured out it was for me. She reads minds, or manipulates people into blabbing what they know.”
Mike lowered his voice to a whisper. “It doesn’t take much for Mae to spill information. I think you’re giving Sandra too much credit.” Yet, she did ask him about the ghosts as soon as he sat down.
“You can joke all you want, Mike, but this is serious. We can’t let anyone else in.”
“I won’t say a word about anything ghostly to anyone. As long as things stay under control.”
Liz studied him.
Mike squirmed. “I think I’m going to take a nap.” He settled back on the sofa.
She tucked the blanket around him and kissed him on the cheek. “I’ll go help Mae with dinner.”
She didn’t believe him. He didn’t trust her. This was never going to work.
