International Bestselling Author Cheryl Kaye Tardif New Release!


From Cheryl Kaye Tardif, the international bestselling author that brought you CHILDREN OF THE FOG, comes a terrifying new thriller that will leave you breathless…






"Submerged reads like an approaching storm, full of darkness, dread and electricity. Prepare for your skin to crawl."

—Andrew Gross, New York Times bestselling author of 15 Seconds



Two strangers submerged in guilt, brought together by fate…



After a tragic car accident claims the lives of his wife, Jane, and son, Ryan, Marcus Taylor is immersed in grief. But his family isn't the only thing he has lost. An addiction to painkillers has taken away his career as a paramedic. Working as a 911 operator is now the closest he gets to redemption—until he gets a call from a woman trapped in a car.



Rebecca Kingston yearns for a quiet weekend getaway, so she can think about her impending divorce from her abusive husband. When a mysterious truck runs her off the road, she is pinned behind the steering wheel, unable to help her two children in the back seat. Her only lifeline is a cell phone with a quickly depleting battery and a stranger's calm voice on the other end telling her everything will be all right.



*SUBMERGED has a unique tie-in to Tardif`s international bestseller, CHILDREN OF THE FOG.


More Reviews:



"From the first page, you know you are in the hands of a seasoned and expert storyteller who is going to keep you up at night turning the pages. Tardif knows her stuff. There's a reason she sells like wildfire—her words burn up the pages. A wonderful, scary, heart-pumping writer." —M.J. Rose, international bestselling author of Seduction



"Tardif once again delivers a suspenseful supernatural masterpiece." —Scott Nicholson, international bestselling author of The Home



"From the first page, Cheryl Kaye Tardif takes you hostage with Submerged—a compelling tale of anguish and redemption." —Rick Mofina, bestselling author of Into the Dark



"Cheryl Kaye Tardif's latest novel SUBMERGED will leave you as haunted as its characters." —Joshua Corin, bestselling author of Before Cain Strikes



"Submerged will leave you breathless—an edge of your seat, supernatural thrill ride." —Jeff Bennington, bestselling author of Twisted Vengeance

Lucky in Love? Well, are you? It's a time of luck and wealth...or not. With each romance we find ourselves in a new world of love and memories. Are these just by chance? Is it luck? Welcome to your second annual Lucky in Love Blog Hop where we want to hear about your love, your romance, and how much you love St. Patrick's Day!!! Are you wearing green? Ready to get pinched...or wait...do you like that?

I once tried to get in the spirit of the Irish--so I made corned beef. NEVER AGAIN! I will never forget how that stunk up my entire house! It was enough to send me off into a Guinness Stout-inspired stupor. Nowadays, my family keeps it simple:


Always a guaranteed hit. 

And then there's this:



But I digress...

Almost 300 bloggers have giveaways and posts about those men we love! 

And that's not all....

We have TWO grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!

Now what are those prizes?


1st Grand Prize: A $100 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
2nd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!



I will be offering three copies of my paranormal romance KISS ME, I'M IRISH--just in time for Erin Go Braugh!

Emily Musgrave is heading a direction she never wanted to go in Regency England--namely a convent to turn her from her waywardness. But it's more loneliness than rebellion that motivates her to escape her certain fate.

Liam Jackson is going nowhere fast in modern-day Tennessee. Playing his Dobro in seedy bars and backward dives along with his fiddling sister, Tinker, is doing nothing for his music career--and even less for the dark places in his soul.

Pixie mischief can not only change time-lines, it can change hearts. Because sometimes a girl just needs a little magic in her life
.

To enter, LEAVE A COMMENT WITH YOUR EMAIL in the comment section. Winners will be notified by email. I will add the list of winners to the top of this post the day after the contest ends, so you can check back.

Thanks to everyone else who participated. To make sure you don't miss another giveaway, sign up for my email list.

 What makes the Irish so magical? Is the selkies? The faeries? The pots of gold? Or perhaps it's the ability of a people who subsisted on plain ol potatoes to take the mundane aspects of life and turn them into enchanting yarns that make us all want to be a little bit Irish

To celebrate that magic, I'm giving a little swag pack to one lucky (heh) winner.

A box of these: 

One of these: 
And a copy of my paranormal romance KISS ME, I'M IRISH.
