Summary
The Celtic Fan. It’s a number one bestseller on every list. It’s a love story for the ages. And it’s a mystery. At least its author is. Nick Roberts has never been seen. He doesn’t do interviews. He doesn’t answer fan mail. He doesn’t do late-night talk shows, or book signings, or conferences. No one knows who he is. Everyone is looking for him; websites have been set up offering rewards for finding him. Four old friends plan their annual road trip. It’s been a toss-up every year, with each being different (and some not so good). But this year Russ’s idea is to find Nick Roberts. With an address stolen from the accounting files of the publishing house that’s home to The Celtic Fan, the four friends set out to find the elusive Roberts and make names for themselves. And as three begin to get distracted – Russ by women, Michael by liquor, and Jim by porn or who knows what – only one stays the course: Steve Riley, a journalist from Knoxville, is determined to find Roberts and land the story of the century. His dedication to his mission is complicated by a deluge, a flash flood, and an obviously incorrect address. But as time has its way, Steve begins to wonder if his trip will be successful in other ways. And if his suspicions are correct, what will he do when they’re confirmed? Even more unsettling is the real question: If he finds Nick Roberts, will he tell? Set in the foothills of the beautiful Smokey Mountains, The Celtic Fan is two stories – the story of a journalist following his biggest story ever, and of a wounded soldier and the girl with whom he falls in love post-World War II. Throughout the pages, Bill and Claire’s tragic tale winds its way through Steve’s story, a sweet and sensual account he never thought he’d tell. Take the time to savor and enjoy his telling, and bring your tissues – you’ll need them.

Review
Man, Deanndra Hall does NOT disappoint you! I read the Me, You & Us series, and I am in love with this author! I will definitely be looking out for more of her work.
The Celtic Fan is such a touching book. It was definitely different, but I loved it. I loved how everything “fell” into place. It was really about being older, finding love, learning how to keep love from miles apart. It is about soul searching, building who you are again, and how to keep your feet on solid ground.
I also loved how you was reading about the characters, but you was also reading about “The Celtic Fan” at the end of each chapter. Having this at the end of each chapter didn’t over do the book either, it actually molded the book, and it linked everything together.
Steve, a journalist, and one of the four friends on an adventure to find Nick Roberts, stumbles upon Diana. Diana lives by herself, off a beaten path, but Steve finds she has a lot of secrets.
I really loved reading about the two stories in one, so to speak. I can not wait to read another book by Deanndra Hall!

Summary
Boring. Tiresome. Predictable. That’s how Trish’s husband of almost 30 years described her when he told her he was leaving. Trish sets out to drink her blues away when she literally stumbles onto a man who offers her the adventure of a lifetime. Trish has no idea what she’s walking into when she visits Bliss, the local BDSM club, but under Dave’s tutelage, she takes to the new lifestyle readily.

And when she’s paired for two weeks with Clint, the one Dom in the place who can’t seem to stand her, sparks fly. He keeps her so confused that Trish isn’t sure what’s going on. She’s sure of one thing, however: She’s falling for the handsome, tortured soul, and she’s hoping he’s falling for her.

But when a simple mistake puts her in harm’s way at his hands, Trish has to decide: Is it an adventure worth dying for? And when everything falls apart, can she manage to forgive him? More importantly, can he forgive himself and bury the ghosts that have been haunting him for too long?

Adventurous Me is a fun, sexy, sweet, explicit, romantic romp that’ll leave you breathless and hopeful. And it’s definitely not for the under-18 crowd.

Review
Are you looking for a deeper fantasy?
I would suggest you read this book. It gives you insight on BDSM, you will learn through Trish, and it will brighten your eyes and your mind.
Adventurous Me is the first book I have read by author Deanndra Hall. I read this whole book in one day, I could not put it down, and the story intrigued me to wanting to know what will happen next.
Trish meets Clint at the BDSM club, she never knew what to expect when she walked into the club. She just knew she wanted an adventure, and to not be a boring girl that her ex-husband said she was.
Clint has been broken on so many levels, but Trish still hung in, even after the awful treatment she went through. Together they learn more about themselves, then what they thought they needed.
Adventurous Me is about happiness, sex, wild-mind-blowing sex, and heartbreak. You should totally check this book, and add it to your TBR Now!

“You do realize that trying to prove something to someone is a lousy reason to do something, don’t you?” His gaze is serious. ~8% Kindle

“I think the adventure was fine. But it’s like they say: It’s not the fall that gets you – it’s the sudden stop at the bottom.” ~83% Kindle

Summary
Reeling from a relationship that didn’t happen, Steffen Cothran stumbles upon a woman who may be the answer to his prayers, but Shelia Brewster has problems he couldn’t have anticipated. They work hard to forge a relationship, only to have it destroyed by someone from Steffen’s past – the one person he’d forgotten about. As Sheila, hurt and angry, walks out of his life, Steffen eventually gives up on love until that fateful night when curiosity takes him somewhere he never thought he’d be to see something he never dreamed he’d see.

Review
I really enjoyed getting to know more about Steffen, a broken man who is a Dom. He works through his emotions through BDSM, and had so many Subs he has lost count. He first met Trish at Bliss, and later found her best friend Shelia. Steffen realizes a lot while Sheila is in his life. He realizes things in his past that is now hurting his relationship in the present. He doesn’t know what to do, but to make it right. Steffen’s past walks into his life, only to realize it was more confusing, and frustrating than before. However, he knows what to do to make the one person happy, and to finally fall in love. When the chaos happens, Shelia realizes she just wants to experience BDSM, not only is she working through the pain, but she uses pain to overcome her feelings for Steffen. Would Steffen hear her screams when she is trouble? Or would her screams never be heard?

There’s no rope, no cuffs, no spreader bar or flogger or blindfolded, just me and her and this warmth and familiarity that I’ve never had with another woman, and it fills her bedroom like fog over the bay. ~46% Kindle

Who am I kidding? I pulled up in a minivan. I’m like a Rottweiler with all of its teeth missing. And I’m oddly happy about it. ~96% Kindle

About the Author
DeanndraHallDeanndra Hall: For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a writer . . .
and it has served me well. I wrote for local publications, wrote marketing and advertising materials, wrote for academic publications, and eventually grew jaded with the writing profession as I often watched others take credit for my hard work. I retreated into the world of 3-D art in the fiber and textile mediums and hid out in a world of colors and textures. But, truth is, there was always a story or two in my head. It wasn’t until Nikki and I met in my imagination that I decided it was time to let those stories out, and I’m glad I did. My readers now get to enjoy the fruits of my imagination and, believe me, it runs wild!
On the personal side, I’ve been happily married to my lover and best friend for over thirty years, and I have two wonderful adult kids who’ve blessed me with two excellent choices of life partners. When I’m not writing, I’m playing with my three crazy little dogs, hiking in a local recreation area, kayaking, working out at the gym, tending my herbs, cooking, or doing some kind of research.

But I’d really rather be writing!
