About the Book
Ria has known Mel practically all her life. He’s solid, dependable – and her friend. But now she’s wondering if she knows him at all. Her long standing friend is showing another darker and sensual side of his that she finds impossible to accept – and as impossible to resist. How can she make Mel go back to being the safe friend she knew?
Fifteen years ago, Ian, she and Mel were brought together by a tragedy. An earthquake rent apart the old colonial style village of Panna and destroyed their childhood. Ian and she made a promise to be together. She thought she was committed to him but now everything is moving out of focus.
Mel’s silken ties and sensual bondage promises her a world of pleasure she never dreamed of exploring. But as she fights her compelling attraction to Mel, Ian sends her a message to renew his long ago intent of marrying her.

I was intrigued by the title (Christmas and a lion don’t usually go together) and, although it’s the second book in a series, it can definitely be read as a standalone.

Jake and Dodger, the first (and so far, only) Emissaries to the Angels, are on the road again.
They’re looking for mortals about to take a wrong turn. You know the ones—the kid thinking about stealing from a corner market or the man planning to lie about a coworker and destroy her career. Yeah, them. People on the brink of making a mistake that could send them down that wrong road and jeopardize their mortal souls.
Jake and his protégé, Dodger are learning more about being Emissaries—and about each other.
I’m delighted to welcome Marcia Meara with the info on her new release and a short extract.
Thank you so much for having me here today, Cathy! I’m so excited to be sharing the release of The Emissary 2: To Love Somebody with you and your followers. The great review you gave the first book of this trilogy definitely inspired me to continue the story of Jake, Dodger, and Azrael, and I hope you’ll enjoy this middle book just as much. I tried to provide all the laughs–and tears–the first book had, along with a few sneaky surprises here and there.
Renee at It’s Book Talk began this meme as a way to share old favourites, as well as books that have been waiting on the ‘to be read’ pile for however long, and are finally getting an airing.
This week’s Throwback Thursday choice is October Rain, a science fiction/dystopian novella published in February 2016.
I’m delighted to welcome Helene to the blog today, with a guest post and extract from her novella, My Sweet Friend.
Hello and thank you very much for inviting me to BetweenTheLines!

A stand-alone novella from the author of Manipulated Lives
A perfect friend … or a perfect impostor?
Alexa is an energetic and charismatic professional and the new member of a Parisian PR company where she quickly befriends her colleagues Rosie and Jack. She brings a much-needed breath of fresh air into the office and ambitiously throws herself into her new job and friendships.
Following in a similar vein to Manipulated Lives, My Sweet Friend explores how much first impressions and appearances sometimes count in someone’s favour and the devastation that can be caused by deliberate manipulation of other people. Told from the alternating perspectives of Alexa and Rosie, we see how quickly their friendship develops when Alexa joins the PR firm Rosie works for. It’s mostly down to Alexa’s persuasiveness and outgoing nature that they quickly become best friends. Rosie is more reserved. Aways ready to help and easy to get along with, Rosie is quickly swept up by Alexa’s enthusiasm and friendliness.

Was Gabe Angelino, the mysterious truck driver in Finding Hunter: Riverbend Book 2, really an angel, as Willow Green believes? Or was he simply a good man, determined to help a stranger in need? Find out, as author Marcia Meara reveals the truth in the first Riverbend spinoff novella, The Emissary.
An angel’s work is never done—that’s part of the gig. But angels hadn’t been created to deal with such a vastly over-populated planet, rife with misery, suffering, and general chaos. Helping souls in peril has become a nearly impossible job, and even angelic tempers are frayed.
We were introduced briefly to Gabe Angelino, otherwise known as Jake, when he appeared in Hunter Painter’s life at just the right moment. Willow Green wasn’t far off the mark, thinking he was an angel. But Azrael, Jake’s boss, isn’t too pleased with his, Jake’s, interactions with Hunter and Willow.
