Mysterious and elusive, Lady Chrysania of Bloodstein calls from the ruins of her castle. She dwells in the dark, hiding her face, ravaged by an ancient curse. The only way to break the curse is to win a game called Perlamum. If she loses, she dies. She looks to her Vith kin in the west, begging for help acquiring the all-important pieces she needs to play the game.

Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort, his Ne-Countess Sammidoran, and his cousins answer her call. However, collecting the Perlamum pieces for Lady Bloodstein is a deadly game. They must face a host of perils:

-The terrible Black Hat in the city of Waam who knows their every move.
-A hated rival on the planet Xandarr and the bewildering labyrinth of Gods Temple.
-The man from Shook who cannot be killed.
-A family of vile bravos from the south.
-The diabolical Dead Men of Mare, nigh invincible creatures straight from an insane nightmare.

To even the odds, Kay and Sam turn to a forgotten graveyard deep in the Telmus Grove, and the great eminence resting there.

Can Lady Chrysania of Bloodstein be helped, or, for that matter . . .

. . . can she be trusted?

The Jersey – Audiobook Blog Tour

Audiobook Tour: The Jersey by James Rosenberg

Author: James Rosenberg

Narrator: Brian Avers

Length: 8 hours 44 minutes

Publisher: Allie H Publishing

Released: Nov. 21, 2019

Genre: Family Drama

Dan West wonders which is more important to him: Helping his long-time friend win back his business after being accused of stealing money from the company, or coaching his 11-year-old son’s soccer team trying to win an improbable championship. Money and prestige don’t motivate Dan. Rather, family, work and coaching soccer are the underpinnings of his life. He revels in the simple joys like hanging out with his wife Jill, mentoring a young lawyer at his firm, and watching the boys connect on three passes before drilling the ball into the back of the net. Dan always knew to keep it steady – not to get too high or he might get knocked off his perch. And he did, until he and the boys’ soccer team achieved unimagined success. Before he can grasp how good he has it, tragedy rips a hole in his family. James Rosenberg, author of the bestseller Legal Reserves, strikes a new chord in his exploration of what makes a life and how to put it back together after it is shattered. The Jersey is a beautifully written, profoundly touching, and relatable story of love, loss, and the redemptive power of a group of motivated 11-year-old kids.

James Rosenberg is a 3rd generation trial attorney with plenty of stories to tell. Inspired not only by the courtroom stories his father and grandfather used to tell him when he was a child, but also by the wild adventures he’s encountered through his own experience as a lawyer. James is fascinated by the intricate, interpersonal dynamics of every trial he’s endured. Whether it’s the raw emotion on display in court, the tension in the air that builds until someone wins, or the impact that a case’s decision has on the parties involved, James is always paying attention and keeping tabs on what’s happening. In his debut novel, “Legal Reserves”, James flexes his creative muscle outside of the courtroom to share his stories, with a fictional twist, through the eyes of archetypes he knows well. His second novel, “The Jersey,” explores the relationships a family-centric lawyer has with his wife and eleven year old son. A native of Pittsburgh and a graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School and the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, James has been a trial attorney in Pittsburgh for almost 30 years. He started writing legal thrillers as a stress reducer and finds this creative outlet to be a fun and meaningful diversion from his day job. When he’s not trying cases, he’s either dreaming up his next book idea, spending time with his wife and three kids, or both.

Top 10 List
James Rosenberg’s Top Ten reasons for choosing Brian Avers (over a lot of other really good narrators) to be the voice of the audiobook:
  1. In his audition, it was clear he completely connected with the book.
  2. He kept telling me about his little boy and how that made him feel a kinship with Dan West, the main character, of The Jersey.
  3. Brian is wickedly funny.
  4. Brian has a great repertoire of voices and he uses many for all of the kids in the story, but also for the adults who he is able to characterize by using a variety of intonations.
  5. He was so easy to work with. He was efficient, organized and made the story even better by how he tells it.
  6. Brian made me feel good about the book. We kept going back-and-forth on email after every chapter and his insights into the book as he was narrating it provided me with confidence that this was going to be a great audiobook.
  7. He has so much experience. Not only with audiobooks, but he is an actor, director and producer. Brian gets the business and having his experience made the process so much easier.
  8. He is in demand. I felt lucky that Brian agreed to narrate the book. His schedule was full and he is asked to work on so many different projects, but he agreed to move some things around and got the book done quickly.
  9. He is willing to let his emotions out. There are some emotional ups and downs in the story. Brian brought out the humor at the appropriate times, but also was able to bring out the pain in the story. You can hear him get emotional, but even more important, you can feel his emotions.
  10. I want to work with him again. He is such a professional that he will be my first choice to narrate my next book. I just hope he is able to do it.

The Unwanted Wife by Natasha Anders – Book Review

The Unwanted Wife by Natasha Anders is a contemporary romantic fiction. Theresa and Alessandro are a beautiful couple who come together in a marriage full of conditions. Though the chemistry between them is amazing, Alessandro feels suffocated in the marriage. Theresa who is madly in love with Alessandro tries her best to make the good wife.

When Alessandro understands that Theresa has no idea about her father’s evil intentions, Alessandro decides to give the marriage another shot but Theresa is heart broken by then. The story is beautiful and I cried a lot reading this cute story. The author definitely is on my top 10 list of favorite authors. 

The pace of the story is very smooth and as a reader, I fell in love with both the lead characters. The detailing, scenes and story line are very well executed by the author. So much love to her. A must read for romantic book lovers.

With one smooth move, he unclasped her bra and grinned. “Counselor, I do believe you’re losing articles of clothes.”
Playing along, she sat up and unbuckled his belt. She couldn’t deny how his body came alive with the promise of more. It was something she’d never get sick of. “Me? Nah, I think you’re mistaken, officer. You on the other hand may need to watch yourself or I’ll book you for indecent exposure.”
Cameron smirked and tugged her shirt and bra off, flinging both toward the television. His eyes hungrily took in her naked torso. “Now that is a crime I’m willing to do time for.” He leaned up and licked her nipple. “So long as you’re in jail with me, that is.”
Gasping, she clasped her hands around his neck and arched toward him. “And what exactly would we do in that jail cell?”
He paused and met her gaze. His voice lowered and he placed purposeful kisses on her chest and neck. “Fuck you until the walls fall down around us.” He captured her lips. “Then do it all over again.”
Shivers ran down Joci’s spine at his words. “Promise?”
A determined grin covered his face. “Cross my heart.”
