Taylor Dean's newest book is now available! GIRLOFMINE $100 Blast Giveaway

Taylor Dean's newest book is now available!
The book trailer:
The song that inspired me while writing GIRL OF MINE:
(Watch until the end. There's a surprise!)
A interesting tidbit about GIRL OF MINE:
My dad always worried about the cost of the electricity bill. If he walked past my bedroom and noticed that my light had been left on, he would turn it off and holler,
"That's okay, Taylor, I got your light."
It became a bit of a joke in our household. My siblings and I loved to try and catch my dad leaving on a light, just so we could say,
"That's okay, Dad, I got your light."
Now that I'm an adult with my own family, the term takes on new meaning.
The message behind it has worked its way into my new novel, Girl of Mine.
My father brought me into this world, he cared for me, and he taught me well. He gave me my "light," my life.
He nourished my "light" and helped me become the person I am today.
So, Dad, thanks for getting my light.
I'll always be grateful.
Taylor Dean lives in Texas and is the mother of four grown children.

Redemption of Don Juan Casanova by Lloyd Lofthouse Review and Blog Tour

The Redemption of Don Juan Casanova by Lloyd Lofthouse: Publisher: Three Clover Press (May, 2015) Category: Crime Fiction, Mystery, Thriller & Suspense Tour Date: May/June, 2015 Available in: Print & ebook, 325 Pages From the award winning author of 'My Splendid Concubine' and 'Running With the Enemy' comes 'The Redemption of Don Juan Casanova'!

Don Juan Casanova wants to discover what it’s like to be loved by only one woman. His problem is that he was raised by his grandparents to become a Lothario, who loves and then leaves women for the next conquest, and as he approaches 40, he is facing a crisis. His grandfather and then younger brother have been viciously murdered, and Don is the prime suspect. As he struggles to stay out of jail and end his life of serial seductions and find one woman to love, he’s discovering it isn’t easy to kick an old habit, and his mother isn’t helping by quoting scripture every chance she gets in an attempt to change her son’s lifestyle of sin for one of piety. 

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  The characters are so well created and in depth, that I was easily moved to reading this book in one sitting.  The whole story is great, there are no dead zones where I felt the need to rest.  In the end the author has yet again written a very irresistable book.

About Lloyd Lofthouse:

Lloyd Lofthouse is a former U.S. Marine and Vietnam Veteran, who worked as a maĆ®tre d’ in a 15 million dollar nightclub for a few years. He also taught English literature in the public schools for most of 30 years where he explored Romeo and Juliet with thousands of high school students. A romantic at heart, in his award winning novels, he tests true love in difficult situations and the challenges of keeping that love alive. My Splendid Concubine, his first novel, is an epic love story that teaches acceptance and respect for other people and their cultures. Running with the Enemy, his second novel, is a love story that will either cost the characters their lives or will complete each other’s hearts. The Redemption of Don Juan Casanova, his third novel, is the story of a man raised in a world of sin and seduction, who craves the love of one woman but fears, because of his infamous reputation as a libertine, that he’ll never find a woman to love who will trust him to be faithful. Lloyd Lofthouse lives with his family in California’s San Francisco Bay area. Website: Twitter: Facebook: Google+:
