Title-Playing the Maestro
By Aubrie Dionne
Publication Date: February 11, 2013
Published By: Entangled Publishing: Bliss

Blurb-Melody Mires has sworn off dating musicians, but when the sexy European conductor Wolf Braun takes over her struggling symphony, her hesitation almost flies out the window with the notes of her flute—until he opens his mouth. Wolf is arrogant, haughty, and seems to have a personal vendetta against Melody. Oh, and he’s her boss. If she wants to keep her job as principal flutist, she’ll have to impress Wolf while simultaneously keeping her undeniable attraction to herself.

Wolf came to America to get as far away from his past as possible, and to recover some of the swagger he had as one of the world’s best maestros. He never imagined being forced to reassess the entire orchestra’s talent—and potentially fire anyone who doesn’t make his cut. Dating the attractive flutist is out of the question, but as their feelings reach a fever pitch, can they risk both their careers for a chance at love?


My Review:

I actually really enjoyed this novel. I would give the author a 5 star review. Although it took me a good minute after start reading it to get use to all the orchestra words. I still thank that its really good. Had a wonderful story line and the characters are just so loveable.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is a romance lover....this novel is perfect for you! What a wonderful job Aubrie. I can't wait to read more of your work.

About the Author-
Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.


Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be "A concert flutist" when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, sci fi author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.

Now for the professional bio:

Aubrie Dionne is an author and flutist in New England. Her writings have appeared in Mindflights, Niteblade, Silver Blade, Emerald Tales, Hazard Cat, Moon Drenched Fables, A Fly in Amber, and Aurora Wolf. Her books are published by Entangled Publishing, Lyrical Press, and Gypsy Shadow Publishing. She recently signed her YA sci fi novel with Inkspell Publishing titled: Colonization: Paradise Reclaimed, which will release in October 2012. When she's not writing, Aubrie teaches flute and plays in orchestras. She's a big Star Trek TNG fan, as well as Star Wars and Serenity.

The Elite by Coey Cain Debut Novel


Author/Publishers advertising packet


Bio (third person unless stated)
Coey Cain is a dedicated author who began writing novels as a means of entertainment at the tender age of eight. Never intending to publish or pursue a career in the field, she chased other opportunities and gained knowledge in a plethora of interests. She spent most of her adult life out West, living a fast-paced lifestyle and appreciating every minute of it. With a great love for fast cars, and with sixteen years' experience in racing and precision driving, she dreams of rally racing cross-country one day.

Coey is an adventurist at heart who's unafraid of new endeavors. She believes that danger and risks are what make for the best experiences, and ultimately better stories. Currently, she's maintaining a quiet lifestyle while focusing on her writing career. Her passion for writing and storytelling has stood the test of time and she feels obligated to herself to make her dreams come true in every aspect of life.


1. Blurb for book/books
Everyone assumes that Joelie Baudelaire lives a charmed life. She has a generous benefactor in Warren Jardine, and a glamorous lifestyle in the exciting city of Las Vegas. Everyone is wrong.

When Warren is arrested, Joelie has the ability to escape the emotional jail he's held her captive in for two years. Her father's house should be her refuge, but it's another kind of prison altogether. All Joelie wants is a normal, peaceful life. Discovering that she is one of The World Elite, a genetically superior race, puts a whole new set of shackles on her life.

Her destiny is planned, and her future marriage is pre-arranged. While Joelie still remembers her childhood crush on the Elite, Sender Stelle, it isn't easy to accept a betrothal to a man she barely knows beyond his photograph.

Warren doesn't want to release his control over her. The World Elite would force her to fulfill her destined duty, and Sender has gone from resigned acceptance to benign co-operation with the powers that be.

Freedom is just out of reach. All Joelie must do is defy some of the most powerful people in the world, and survive.

Excert #1 from Chapter Two

“In the past four months, from Portland, Oregon all the way up to Canada, over thirty people have vanished. The last one disappeared two days ago in Everett. From the southernmost point of the state to Canada’s border, we’ve got thirteen missing people and eight dead. It’s not usual.

“In Grays Harbor County alone, we have five missing people and four deaths. Some of them look like they’ve been attacked by an animal. Some have bled to death. There’s been drowning, car accidents, literally all kinds of things, but none of us have ever seen this kind of tragedy around here before. We’ve more than tripled hunting efforts trying to find the animals that are responsible for the mauling’s, but we’ve never seen anything like it. I’d say everyone should be cautious and worried. Over twenty-five percent of it has happened in this county.”

Joelie swallowed hard. “Jesus!”

“Don’t worry, though. You’re covered. We’re all packin’,” he stated, and patted the gun at his hip, concealed by a black jacket. “Maybe we’ll get one of these animals on camera when I get everything installed. I know it sucks but, in the meantime, you’re going to have to stay indoors as much as you can, and absolutely don’t go walking around by yourself.”

“Don’t worry. I’m not the type to go wandering off into the forest alone. Maybe when I was little, but I’ve grown out of my tomboy phase. Now that I’m grown up, I’m not fond of getting dirty.”

“So, how do you plan on entertaining yourself out here? There isn’t much nightlife around, except for a few bars.”

“I haven’t figured that out yet. Maybe I’ll find a job somewhere. Then I’ll be too busy to get bored.” She was amused by the idea. She hadn’t worked in years, but had always enjoyed having a job and a place to go every day. “Plus, I’d meet people and make friends.”

“I don’t know many companies that would understand us hanging around for your safety, though.”

“Why would you be around if I was at work?”

“Why wouldn’t we be? The risks are high right now. I know you’re probably not thrilled about having a bunch of strange dudes coming and going at all hours, but there is some reason in it. All of us agree on that. We’ve all looked through Warren’s file. The dude’s been arrested seven times in the past three years. He’s what we call a ‘habitual offender.’ It’s pretty clear he has a drinking problem and control issues.”

“He’s an alcoholic and a control freak. I’m just shocked he’s gotten away with the real crimes he’s involved in.”

“He won’t forever. I really hope he comes out here on my watch, or Diesel’s. Either way, Old Dude is going to get played.”

Mayhem laughed mischievously. His laugh was similar to the sort of laugh you would hear from a group of teenage boys watching an old man stomping out a flaming bag of manure left on his doorstep by said teenagers. It was loud, overly boisterous, yet charismatic. He was an energetic character, and he amused himself.

Excert #2 from Chapter Five

The fear of her father finding out about the argument haunted her. Surely, a man as masculine as Diesel wouldn’t go telling on a small girl for having an attitude, would he? She busied herself with the internet, checking mail and reading articles about the area in hopes of finding some entertainment nearby. She soon diverted her search when every headline seemed to include the horror that had taken over the peaceful town. She was sick of hearing about it. The point was to relax, not dwell on crime, kidnapping, and murder.

There was a knock on her door, and she realized she’d been shut up in her room for almost two hours. “Come in.”

The door opened slowly, and she watched Diesel enter her room cautiously. As he looked her over, she pulled her right knee up to her chest as she sat in the office chair. He held out a small canister, and she hesitated before reaching for it. He pulled it back swiftly before she could curl her fingers around it.

“This is the most potent mace on the market. Please, do not spray this at me,” he warned, before he relinquished the bottle into her hands. “Carry it with you at all times, and don’t spray it downwind. It’ll knock you on your ass, and then you’re just a sitting target.”

Joelie stared at him momentarily, before she glanced down at the small canister. “How is this going to help me if I can accidentally use it on myself?”

“That’s why I’m telling you now not to do that.”

Excert #3 from Chapter Nine

She had been second guessing everything about the past two years, just like Sender had guessed. Warren was controlling, possessive, jealous, and untrusting. He rarely let her out of his sight, and he always knew where she was. It was leading her to believe her parents, and some of her friends, were on to something when they held their ground that he was simply not good for her, and she needed to get away from him.

What she didn’t understand was that if Warren had some mystical power over her, then why had she never been in love with him as he wanted her to be? She had too many questions running through her mind. If her grandmother or her father didn’t uphold this psychotic theory, and give her some form of proof, she would insist that Sender be seen by a professional.

Hours later, Joelie awoke startled, gasping from the distressed dream she’d had. She sat straight up, searching every corner of the large dim room to find it empty. The sun was just starting to rise, causing the pale grayish-blue hues across the sky.

She was nearly panting from her labored breathing. She’d had another Sender dream with puzzling messages and mysterious meanings that seemed to cause anxiety, night after night. This time, she had woken up in the dream with Sender sitting on the bed. She was so startled that she woke up for real. There was no question that their conversation from a few hours ago had instigated the dream, as he was the last thing she was thinking about before she finally fell asleep.
It was disturbing, just the same. The reoccurring Sender dreams were severely unsettling, even though there was nothing threatening about them. Since the day they met, he’d been in her dreams, promising safety and protection. Tonight, however, it had taken a more intimate turn. He was just about to kiss her when she woke up within her dream to find him sitting beside her, causing the alarm that actually did wake.

**This story contains language and sexual scenes, some of which may be unsuitable for younger readers.**

When Rose Jensen’s grandfather dies, he leaves her enough money to save her parents’ failing business and get her through UCLA. The only catch – she has to marry Lee Montenegro, the infuriating half-Spanish, all-playboy transfer. Rose and Lee’s grandfathers were fast friends, and betrothed their grandchildren to each other.

Lee wants the money to run from his suffocating family, and turns his full burning charisma on Rose, but she won’t give in. She’ll never marry someone she doesn't love, and who doesn't love her. But memories of a mysterious boy in her childhood haunt her, and Lee insists they know each other. With her parent’s pressures mounting, her scholarship slipping, and Lee’s advances heating up with more than just money-lust, Rose is torn between doing the right thing for her family, and doing the right thing for her heart.
