Today I am delighted to have on my Blog a very gifted and talented author 

Katherine Lowry Logan

Katherine grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and attended college in New Jersey, where she earned a BA in Psychology and a minor in Criminal Justice. After attending the Philadelphia Institute for Paralegal Training, she returned to Central Kentucky and worked as a real estate and tax paralegal. Katherine is an avid reader, a marathoner, and lives in Lexington, Kentucky. 

The ruby Brooch 

Is the first novel in the Celtic Brooch Trilogy 

A Sweeping Saga

As the sole survivor of the car crash that killed her parents, grief-stricken paramedic Kit MacKlenna is stunned to learn her life is built on lies. A legacy from her father includes a faded letter and a well-worn journal. The journal reveals she was abandoned as a baby 160 years ago. The only clues to her identity are a blood-splattered shawl, a locket with the portrait of a 19th century man, and a Celtic brooch with magical powers. Kit decides to continue her father’s twenty-five year search for her identity, and solve her birth parents’ murders.
Scotsman Cullen Montgomery, a San Francisco-bound lawyer who resembles the ghost who has haunted Kit since childhood, helps her join a wagon train heading West. More dangerous than the river crossings, bad water, and disease encountered on the trail, is Cullen’s determination to expose her lies and uncover the source of her unusual knowledge and life saving powers.
Kit is convinced if she can survive the perilous journey and Cullen’s accusations, as well as thwart his attempts to seduce her, she might solve the mystery of her heritage and return home without leaving her heart on the other side of time.

The last MacKlenna

Is a stand-alone romance that takes place between THE RUBY BROOCH ( Book 1,) and THE SAPPHIRE BROOCH (Book 2). This book is not a time travel romance. It is a contemporary romance involving Elliott Fraser, who is introduced in THE RUBY BROOCH. Elliott and Meredith both appear in THE SAPPHIRE BROOCH.

The Last MacKlenna is first in romance!

Meredith Montgomery, owner of a Napa, California winery, is facing not only another Christmas alone, but devastating news. Seeking a distraction, she flies to Edinburgh to do some genealogy research for a brochure advertising her winery’s 150th anniversary gala. While in Edinburgh, she meets Elliott Fraser, a Highlander, who is president of MacKlenna Farm, a world-renowned Thoroughbred operation in Lexington, Kentucky.
A dinner invitation turns into a Christmas Day outing at Elliott’s four-hundred-year-old family castle. Following the most perfect day in Meredith’s life, Elliott rushes back to Kentucky to deal with a crisis on his farm.
Not wanting to return to California and the news awaiting her, Meredith stops in Kentucky for a visit. Disaster strikes both Elliott and his farm, pulling Meredith into a web of mystery and murder at a time when she’s facing a crisis of her own.
Can these two wealthy and powerful people find their way through the chaos and take a chance on their volatile love, or will the obstacles they face be too much to overcome?

The Sapphire Brooch

The long awaited sequel to the Kindle Time Travel Romance Bestseller THE RUBY BROOCH! is now here.

The saga of the brooches continues in this Civil War Time Travel Romance...

A Union soldier risks everything to save the life of Abraham Lincoln, while a Confederate surgeon races through time to preserve Lincoln’s Legacy.

Reenactor Dr. Charlotte Mallory has spent years perfecting the portrayal of her ancestor, Civil War Confederate surgeon Major Carlton Mallory. In the middle of the 150th anniversary reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Creek, she is hurled back in time and lands in the middle of the battle itself, and from there is catapulted into dangers that threaten her life and shatter her heart.

Charlotte is captured by Union soldiers during the battle and hauled before General Sheridan. The General only sees a Confederate surgeon who can solve a challenging problem for him, so he threatens Charlotte with the destruction of her two-hundred-year-old ancestral home unless “he” agrees to rescue a Union spy from a Confederate hospital. To save her home and possibly her own life, she reluctantly agrees. After a harrowing journey to Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond, she finds her target, a handsome, green-eyed spy with a Minie ball in his gut and is now at death’s door. Without a thought for long-term consequences, she returns with him to the future, where she has the technology to save his life.

While recovering from his gunshot wound in Charlotte's ancestral home, the spy, Major Michael Abraham “Braham” McCabe learns the man he works for, President Lincoln, was assassinated. Now Braham is determined to return to his century to prevent the assassination. When Charlotte refuses to help him, because it will change the future, he finds another way to get back to his own time.

Now Charlotte must find the courage to follow her heart into the past, and fix the mess she created before it unravels and changes the course of history.

What began as the rescue of a dying man explodes into an eight-month, terrifying, and spellbinding escapade that carries Charlotte across the boundaries of time, honor, and duty to protect history and those she loves, putting everything she cherishes at risk, her heart, her home, and her life.

Another interesting spot was the Acropolis museum. The museum is located by the southeastern slope of the Acropolis hill. It is set only 280 meters from the Parthenon. It is a huge gorgeous building with three levels of collections and amazing exhibits, with a fourth level used as the museum shop, cafe and the offices.

On the first floor the exhibits are from the findings of the slopes of the Akropolis, as well as the artifacts and sculputures from the Akropolis buildings like Erechtheum, the Temple of Athena, and Parthenon. 

The third floor is amazing. The exhibits are fabulous and the views unbelievable. This is what you see from the windows that face the city of Athens. 

And this is what you see when you look out of the floor to celling windows facing the Akropolis

Later on we walked through the beautiful pebbled streets of Plaka and visited some of the shops.
What a great shock to find our books in one of the local bookstores !!!!!!! We asked permission from the owner if we could take some photos in front of our books and he agreed. We were soooooo happy about that. WOW!! WHAT!!! but here they were. My fourth book is missing lol!!! what happened? the proprietor said it was out of stock at the moment lol!!!

On the way back, we took the Metro to get to where we parked the car. This Metro station did not look like any other I had ever seen. From the photo below you would think what's the big deal? 

The big deal is that the station looked just like a museum. The walls were covered in glass protecting artifacts found while digging to build the Metro. The marble floors are beautiful!!!!

This was utterly unbelievable!!!!!
What a vacation!! and what a fascinating place.



My amazing trip to Acropolis, the formally proclaimed as the preeminent monument on the European Cultural Heritage.
What a sight!!!!!!!!

The Acropolis is located on a flat-topped hill that rises 150m above sea level in the city of Athens. A temple of Athena was erected around 570 -550 BC. It is absolutely amazing. A massive wall was built 760 meters long, up to 10 meters high, and ranging from 3.5 to 6 meters thick. This wall they say was to protect Acropolis until the 5th century BC. All the monuments on that hill are universal symbols that represent a stunning civilization. They are architectural miracles artistically complex and fascinating. Acropolis is considered to be a sacred hill. I am so happy that I took the time to visit and admire like millions have to this day such a wonder. It left me breathless, filled with pure respect and appreciation for the ability of the Greeks to erect monuments that are beautiful powerful and endure the changes through the centuries.

The next stop for Angel Sefer and I was Acropolis. WOW!!!! WOW!!!
There are no words to describe the magic of this place.

From the hill you can see the city of Athens and the Agean Sea. A breathtaking sight. What was so amazing to me was the quiet around me. There were hundreds of people but they looked speechless. They were just staring at the view and taking tons of pictures. Pure and utter beauty. 

 The building below is called the Erechtheion and was the last temple that was build on that hill. The six famous ladies are called Kariatithes. The originals figures are in a museum because the air pollution would destroy them, so they were removed and replaced by copies. They are dated back to the 6th century BC. I can't even think that far back. How amazing is that?

On the south slope of the Akropolis is a fabulous amphitheater that is dated back to fourth century BC. This was the theater of Dionysys Eleuthereus the God of wine and the patron of drama.

It could seat 17,000 spectators. OMG!!!

A happy wonderful day on the sacred hill of Akropolis in the heart of Athens!!!!!!!

This was an awesome trip to Athens Greece. I spent time with a  Bestselling author Angel Sefer. 
First Visit was to a fantastic spot called Sounion

The locations shown above and below are BREATHTAKING!!! The ruins hold a lot of history and mystery. The scenery around the temple is majestic. The cliffs are extraordinary. 
The temple is located strategically at the tip of the Attica peninsula. This is the last point the Greek soldiers that were going to battle could see as the left Greek soil, and the first when they were coming back. The Athenians waited for the warriors to come back and if the ship sails were white, they prepared Athens for a huge celebration. If they were black, they prepared for funerals. It is said that King Aegeus leapt to his death off of the cliff, because his son forgot to raise the white sails and his father thought that he had been killed. His name was given to the Aegean Sea. 

The view from the Temple

You have to experience the sensational sunsets like the one shown in the photo below to understand the fascination that surounds this location. I fell in love with the magic the mystery and history. 

The photo below is on the top of Sounion at the point where the Athenians stood to wait for the ships coming in from battle. How amazing is that??? I was mesmerized knowing that amazing warriors and kings stood at the same spot in 700 BC, WOW!!!!!!

I was sad to leave Greece by my heart and thoughts remained there, and I am sure that I am going back as soon as I can arrange another visit.

In the words of a reviewer:
I loved everything about this book and thus, I recommend it to everyone:
<<< the tone is awesome, it makes you feel like the characters are absolutely real, flesh and bone, standing right in front of you ;-)

<<< the plot is stunning - it's impossible to put this book down until the very last word, and it makes you feel sorry and sort of empty that it has ended;

<<< the nice, quick pace and the unexpected twists of the story will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat;

<<< it's easy and pleasant to read - you won't even notice you've been turning pages until, all of a sudden, it's the end...
A big Thanks to the author for such a great job!

The nightlife Series (Books 1-4) was released December 24th

The Nightlife Series is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.
Vampires, strippers, escorts, night clubs, pimps & dirty cops – the Nightlife Series is never boring.
Can decadence, corruption and prostitution go hand in hand with self-control? Over-indulgence, crime and vampires lurk in darkness when night falls on the city.
The Nightlife Series explores the sexy, dangerous misadventures of vampires and an interesting assortment of wickedly corrupt men and women of the night. Gangs, pimps, prostitutes, cartel, mafia, drug dealers, addicts, alcoholics, all those wonderfully colorful people you find rubbing elbows in the back alleys, night clubs, and strip joints.
These creatures inhabit a world of constant blood, sex, and arousal. The act of feeding is highly erotic, victims often experience multiple orgasms. A vampire’s bite is the most powerful drug imaginable, ecstasy, euphoria, and an ever-present potential for addiction. Lethally violent predators, they can cut through flesh like a hot knife through butter. They slip through the nightlife quietly, unobtrusively, until cornered. Then it gets ugly, people die.


˃˃˃ "The ensemble of wickedly sexy and disobedient characters are an interesting assortment that you will love and love to hate – even the villains have endearing moments."

˃˃˃ "Full of raw emotional turmoil and intense action; I was captured from the start and did not want to put it down….I felt so much passion for the characters while reading this book."

Vampires Aaron and Michelle prowl the dark, gritty, strip clubs and back alleys of London on the hunt for Michael Jamison, the man who stole Michelle's blood and left her for dead. To assist them, Aaron’s new master, Urvashi, calls in favors from her friends, Russian mercenary werewolves.
Wolves Katya and Ivan, hunters adept at killing rogue vampires, set aside their animosity for Aaron and Michelle to stop Jamison from murdering another woman – he already has one bloodless victim lying in the morgue.
Jamison, ex-special forces, feels his enemies closing in, but he won’t go down without a fight – and like Aaron and Michelle, he also has powerful friends.


>>> Masterfully written the dialogue has many puns and punchlines I would like to remember, the characters are excellently drawn and are seriously flesh and blood throughout.

>>> The sex scenes are short, hot and also serve the purpose of character illustration. The language is explicit but realistic, particularly the UK - English vocabulary and the story is so well paced that I finished it almost in one sitting.
For fans of erotic fantasy/ vampire stories the Nightlife Series is a must.
>>> The ever consistent Travis Luedke does not disappoint in the next installment of The Nightlife Series. Aaron and Michelle is once again involved in a gripping adventure in London in an action packed and sensationally embellished love triangle, complicated by the introduction of two new characters and a whole cast of bad guys after them!

Nightlife in San Antonio was released June 11th 2014

Vampires, Mafia & Mayhem: The Nightlife San Antonio is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.
All she wanted was to escape the police. All he wanted was to get laid. They both got more than they bargained for.
EMT on call, Adrian Faulkner resuscitates a beautiful woman after a Mexican mafia shootout. He can't explain why he picks her up in the hospital parking lot three days later and then ducks the San Antonio police and the Feds. Well, the hot sex might have something to do with it.

Adrian soon learns she is much more than a damsel in distress, and he’s stuck with her. It isn't long before the past she cannot remember begins to catch up with them both…
THE NIGHTLIFE SAN ANTONIO is a non-stop thrill ride through the shadowy borderworld of mafia politics and vampires – and sex.
"Luedke writes with a raw and honest style that is a breath of fresh air and makes the scenes realistic and powerful. The sexual tension is made even more gripping and intense by the constant 'playing with fire' that accompanies the sex with a vampire."
"Spiked with great one liners, fast paced writing, filth, sex and violence this is paranormal writing at its best."
"Travis Luedke takes so many genres and melds them all together into an exciting thrill ride that you can't escape from. Just when you think things are going to calm down and finally head in one direction, the platform is swept
