Princess of Dorsa by Eliza Andrews

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear a clip from the audiobook Princess of Dorsa by Eliza Andrews narrated by Elizabeth Saydah. 

 

Synopsis 

The fate of an empire lies in the hands of one untested princess.

Rebellious Princess Natasia has always known that her fate is to marry a man her father can shape into his heir. But everything changes after a would-be assassin nearly takes Tasia's life. Someone with means and connections is obviously trying to destabilize the Empire, but who? No noble family is above suspicion, so the Emperor takes the extraordinary step of naming his daughter his true heir.

Tasia suddenly finds herself saddled with learning to rule an entire Empire. But there are enemies on every side, threatening to disrupt the Empire's fragile peace -- there's the long-standing and deeply unpopular war in the East, disagreements amongst her father's closest advisors, angry lords threatening their defiance, and rumors of a faraway kingdom trying to sow discord.

Can Tasia rise to the occasion? Will she be the leader her father believes her to be? Or is the Empire doomed to fall?

Escape & Freedom by Claire Highton-Stevenson

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear the a clip from my audiobook, Escape & Freedom by Claire Highton-Stevenson narrated by Sarah Sampino. 

Synopsis

Two women escaping their own demons. One stuck in the past, the other a very real present. 

Lucy Owens’ life was irrevocably changed in a matter of seconds. Life as she knew it was over in the blink of an eye. Moving away from all that she knew, Lucy now lives a solitary life in her cabin on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Filled with guilt and pain, she keeps herself to herself, and for years she manages to avoid immersing back into society.

Nicole Granger has three small children to worry about. Always looking over her shoulder, they arrive at the lake with very little to call their own. Haunted by years of physical abuse, she longs to belong again, to bring normality to her girls’ lives for the first time. 

Both women are pulled towards one another in an attraction that could bring both of them their freedom.  --

Learning To Swim by KJ

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear a reading from the book Learning To Swim by KJ

Synopsis 

What do you do when your world flips upside down? You take a wild ride with your best friend, fall in love with the person you least expect, and find out that sometimes, instead of drowning, you learn to swim .

Meet Andrea. She’s an executive accountant. Her two best friends, Lauren and Hanna, tease her about being a workaholic, but she doesn’t deny it. Andrea likes to think she’s got a handle on all aspects of her life, but she doesn’t really. For example, Andrea has no idea that Lauren has been in love with her for six years. Andrea has no idea that her life is about to implode when her mum is rushed to hospital. Andrea has no idea that there are moves afoot at work to destabilise her world. Andrea has no idea about any of this and it takes a life changing experience and falling in love with the one who’s been right in front of her the whole time to stop her from drowning. In the end, Andrea discovers that changing your life is a little like learning to swim.

Dal Segno by Jax Meyer

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear the first chapter of the audiobook for Dal Segno by Jax Meyer

Synopsis

On the verge of turning 40, former Marine Cameron ‘Cam’ Warren didn’t expect to be walking onto a community college campus to spend a year playing music. Instead of enjoying her career, Cam is still mourning the tragic death of her partner and fellow Marine Sharon. Five years have now passed but she is no further forward in dealing with her grief. Cam knows she needs to change so she can heal. Will taking a sabbatical to play the drums allow her to live fully again, connecting her to emotions in ways her autism has always prevented? 

Jazz pianist and teacher Laura Clark has had enough of city life on the east coast and yearns for the quiet beauty of Colorado. When a faculty position opens at a small community college in Ft. Collins, she jumps at the chance to start a new life. However, what she couldn’t predict was that one of her star students was about to walk back into her life, 20 years later. 

When Cam is introduced to the new jazz ensemble director she is shocked to see her high school music teacher, a thousand miles away from the small town where Ms. Clark first introduced her to jazz. But Cam is no longer a kid and, as their chemistry grows stronger, Cam has to choose which path her life will take - will she choose love or will she choose fear? 

Dal Segno is a lesbian romance that shows the power of revisiting the past to create a completely different result. Everything changes the second time around….

Dal Segno is a lesbian and bisexual age gap romance between an autistic, butch, Marine veteran and a jazz pianist and teacher.

The Love Doctor by SW Andersen

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear a reading from The Love Doctor by SW Andersen.

Synopsis 

Sofia Delacruz is her name and love is her game.

Despite the tragic end to her own story, she hasn't given up on happily ever after. At least, not when it comes to other people. With her best friend, Reyna, by her side, they've built a successful business helping others make their one true connection.

When a new client hires them in hopes of kindling a relationship with her long-time crush, life takes an unexpected turn. Personal desires burn like bonfires and professional boundaries are pushed, putting the duo in uncharted territory.

For Sofia, however, that tantalizing burn also pierces like a stake through the heart. Can she finally shake the pain of her past and heal? Or will she spend the rest of her days cursing the powers that be?

S.W. Andersen delivers a heartwarming story about the healing power of opening oneself up to love after loss.
