The Carnival Chronicle Marathon continues with Angela Seals, Aja, and Stephanie Norris.  I hope you are attending and enjoying the author chats hosted by The Book Bar and Loretta Murray.  Stay tuned……



Jaide aka JoJo Jackson is a five time, Grammy Award winning pop singer. She’s let fame and fortune deter her from love because men tended to fall at her feet in admiration. Which usually meant, their love – better yet – their lust, was nothing but the fake kind. In all honesty, she adores the attention and she’s never had to work for anything in her life. Little does she know, Aden Campbell has been waiting to bring the big time singer down a notch.

Stage Manager Aden is all about hard work. The harder, the better! And this perfectionist has watched JoJo for years and knows that this diva pop star wouldn’t know hard work if bit her in her beautiful backside. When he learns she’ll be taking his stage on one of the biggest events to hit Chicago, he can’t help but smile. The city is his playground and with him, everyone is on equal footing. No matter what he’s heard, he’s ready for her feisty attitude.. Or so he thinks…

Make Me Yours is Angela Seals’ contribution to the Carnival Chronicles.

Aiden and Jaide (JoJo) couldn’t be more different; she is a high maintenance diva used to getting her way and Aiden is a well sought out stage manager that follows one rule book…his.

Jaide JoJo Jackson is the high maintenance diva who is used to getting her way, that is until she faces off with Aiden. He’s been known to run his stage with an iron fist and a no diva zone, but he is knocked off his groove when JoJo Jackson breaks his on-time rule.

One of the things I liked most was the way the author presented the characters; even though they look to have it all together, they didn’t. With love, forgiveness, understanding, and some compromise, Aiden and Jaide were able to move forward.



This is a short story … so short that it moves fast. No slow burn, no filler. This couple gets right to the point.

Nova Bradford and Mikhail Luther have a long history. They’ve known each other since they were students at Blythe T. Young Magnet High School. Mikhail was the handsome high school jock with the pretty homecoming queen on his arm and Nova, well Nova was the ugly duckling no one cared about.After years of working on her self-confidence thanks to a friend and therapy, she finally decides albeit reluctantly, to embark on a school reunion cruise to tropical paradise where she will come face to face with her former classmates that taunted her every day.What she doesn’t expect to find is Mikhail, alone and not the same young man from school. What follows seems unlikely, but it’s also the thing they both need …


REVIEW: 🎨🎨🎨🎨🎨

The Swan is Aja contribution to the Carnival Chronicles and she brings love and art to the festivities. Nova and Mikhail’s backstory is simply put; high school jock, a bully ex-girlfriend, and Nova at the end of that angst.

It is a high school reunion cruise and maturity that grants them an opportunity to clear the air and see things in a different light. Not only do these two have great chemistry, but they also have an infinity for the arts…it just doesn’t get sexier than that.

You will enjoy their journey to finding a chance at love.  I recommend cruising with this one.


Kickstart Dance Studio owner Tatiana Anderson is excited about her squad’s upcoming competition at the Afro Caribbean Carnivale. Practicing day and night has her team in tip-top shape, and she’s confident they will take home the win. That is, until she discovers the rival dance studio across the street is who they’ll be facing off against.

And not only will they compete for the victory, but getting to know the leader, Messiah West, has Tatiana wondering if they’re battling for something a little more. Determined to ward off any sentiments of desire, Tatiana’s guard remains elevated. But Messiah’s perseverance is just as strong in his ambition to break down her walls.


REVIEW: 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽

Move Your Body is Stephanie Norris’ contribution to the Carnival Chronicles. In this one, she brings the spirit of dance or vertical lovemaking; choose your flavor.

Messiah and Titiana bring the heat right from the beginning and as their journey progress so does the attraction between them. If the chemistry wasn’t evident in the practices, wait until the competition.

Move your body is a dance into a sexy love story.  A few notable scenes: the gun range and the fishing boat.

I recommend this great addition to the Carnival Chronicles.
