The Unexpected Spy by Liza O’Connor
Having come so close to Parliament falling into a foreign country’s hands, Amy wishes to help keep her country safe by being the finest spy Chavier has ever taught.
Since no one but Chavier, and those who know her well, perceive her to be anything but a charming, but silly young girl, she will have easy access to those who are apt to cause trouble, since they will think her harmless.
Amy is the finest spy that has ever existed. Her ability to hide in plain sight is almost magical. Her ability to heal is beyond what should be possible. Her hearing is acute as is her ability to smell. Thus, she can throw a knife with accuracy in the dark and hit her targets with precision. In addition, she now knows ten languages: English, French, Scottish, Dutch, Russian, German, Portuguese, Finnish, Spanish, and Swiss. Thus if, someone whispers in a different language she not only has acute hearing to hear it, but it is very likely that she will understand what they are saying.
EXCERPTToday, Amy had managed to arrive for their mid-day meal before Chavier. Thus, she was able to fill her plate with her favorite meats, fruits, and vegetables. She even made a little plate of meats for Patience, which she held in her lap.
Chavier entered and smiled at her full plate. “Did you leave me anything to eat?” he chided.
“Shall I ask the head server to bring out more?” Amy asked. “I’m sure she will, if I ask.”
Chavier gripped her hand and kissed her knuckles in a sensual manner that made her hungry, but not for food.
“I will share my food, if you wish,” she offered and moved her chair closer to the corner.
“I believe you are sharing sufficiently with your pup. I will manage with the scraps you’ve left.”
Her forehead wrinkled. “Truly, I do not want you to go hungry.”
“That will never happen. Since the head server adores you, she ensures you nor I ever go hungry.”
“She does. but still, I will share my food.” She stabbed a thick chunk of roast with the serving fork. “Would you like this strip? I’ve already eaten two slices.”
Chavier laughed. “I have no idea how you remain so thin given the quantity of food you consume.”
“You may have this slice if you wish.”
“No, I’ll just take the scraps you left me.” He then stabbed the remaining cut.
Just then, the head server entered with a fresh plate of roast strips.
“My, but you two must be starving. When was the last time either of you ate?”
“Yesterday,” Chavier replied.
“Me too! What were you doing yesterday?” Amy asked.
“We’ll discuss that later,” he promised Amy.
She smiled, hoping that meant she was going to do more spy work. Her first attempt at spying had gone very well. Chavier had hidden documents in the library and she had found them all before the hour was up. However, this time she wanted it to be a real event. That would be ever more exciting.

More About the Author
Liza O’Connor’s favorite books are Pride & Prejudice and Douglas Adams’ four book trilogy, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Go figure…
Raised in the southern mid-section of U.S., Liza escaped to the East Coast once out of college. She’s worked as a journalist, a radio DJ, a security guard, a stockbroker, a strategist, and a business solutions consultant to name a few of her many occupations. Again…go figure.
She learned to fly planes, jump out of planes, hang-glide, kayak and scuba dive, to name of few of her ‘let’s kill Liza’ sports. However, her favorite activity was to hike with her dog Jess among the shaved mountains of NJ. Jess is near 20 years old now, so he’s not up to much anymore. So I just garden and write more books.

Amy is a one of a kind woman. She's got the looks and charm but also the smarts. Ms. O'Connor's latest book in the Extraordinary Woman series is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat as Amy navigates a criminal controlled area of England. People aren't who they appear to be and Amy's life is on the line...but more importantly--England's future is in danger!
Amy is one of my favorite Liza O'Connor's characters. She reminds me of Vic from her Historical England Sleuth Series. I could see the two women becoming friends and with those two on the case, the world is a better place!

Do you have a favorite horror movie? I loved Poltergeist and the original Friday the 13th movie.
Many of us dream of a perfect mate. The one who can complete us, making us feel loved and appreciated. What if that was someone who could shield you from harm? Their magic worked in harmony with yours. What if they were the last of your species?
Ms. Pagano's new series is about a supernatural hotel where the last two faeries find themselves. Neither one came in thinking about love or a perfect mate, but they found it...along with danger.
Hidden in plain sight, is a mysterious hotel that doubles as a supernatural refugee: The Soppronaturale.
Each supernatural inhabitant has a specific purpose, job, and destiny.
All to keep the hotel running and its secrets safe.
Vampires exist. Werewolves exist. Witches exist. Shape Shifters exist. And now Faeries exist.
The last two Faeries, once unified, could be the most powerful forces on Earth.
Ommily, newcomer to the Soppronaturale, offensively controls and manipulates the four elements; Fire, Earth, Wind and Water. While Link defensively uses their energy to shield Ommily and himself from even the darkest magic.
They could protect all others. But first, they have to defeat the Gauntlet.
The elevator doors cut off our connected gaze. The second they shut, I hunch over the counter in relief, leaning on Kyran.
“What the hell was that?”
“I think you mean, who the hell was that?” Kyran pats me on the back. An evil and cunning smirk creeps across his face.
“What do you mean who?” I grip my chest, scrunching up my starchy uniform underneath.
Kyran spins me into the back room when no one is watching. “That, my dear boy, that was you. The only other you in the whole, vast world.”
“That’s impossible.” I say in a brittle voice, my eyes swelling with tears.
“Impossible…yet here she is.”
About the Author:
Ashley Pagano has always dreamed of being an artist both figuratively and literally. Her love of art was instilled by her mother who always inspired her to be creative either with a paintbrush or with a pen and paper. As far back as she can remember her life was always centered around introspection, storytelling, and imagination. Because she is so artistic, she took to the idea of creative writing very passionately. Her ability to describe a scene, person, or place, she compares to painting a picture, where she can describe every detail vividly in order to make the reader feel like they’re truly living in the story. Her works of writing usually center around a powerhouse female protagonist (which reflect her own personality), who progresses through many wild and extreme obstacles. Ashley loves to write stories that end with a cliffhanger, that have the reader begging for more and questioning what happens next. Her most recent novel sets the stage for the paranormal romance of the century and includes ghosts, poltergeists, and demons who just love to get in the way of true love. Ashley has won awards for her design, art, and writing.
Ashley doesn’t believe in down time whatsoever and actually loves having a full “To-Do”list. Ashley is a wife to her wonderful husband, Eric and a mother to a beautiful little baby girl named Dakota. She is also a Graphic Designer and a health and fitness coach. Her husband and daughter inspire her to be the best person she can be and encourage her to pursue any of her dreams (no matter how extravagant they may be).

Many times we have fallen in love with the bad boys or villian. Think Loki. He's the bad guy but we learn to love him as we find his anger comes from the pain of his childhood.
Clara Winter has created such a fascinating bad guy in Alexandre. He literally lost his head in the last Immortal Kindred book and we lost our hearts. Now Alexandre is back and he's met his match!
Love has no limits…
Alexandre has retreated from the world. He has no one to love, nowhere to call home. While licking his wounds in the middle of nowhere, Alexandre is approached by Irish lass, Bria. She has a proposal for him; to follow her to Ireland and fight demons.
Alexandre finds this amusing, but intriguing. More than anything, he is curious to see the individual who sent Bria, someone from his ancient past.
In Ireland, Alexandre confronts a dilemma greater than fighting demons. He must face down fiends of all kinds, deciding once and for all who he really is. Sparks fly between Bria and Alexandre, adding to the already complicated situation. Can a bad boy vampire really change?
The King of Kings is set in southern Ireland with a glimpse back to Ancient Egypt.
