The Dragon of Croatia: A Review

If you're in the mood for a lovely, romantic short story, The Wild Rose Press is the place for you. Try for instance the following:

The Dragon of Croatia

by Valerie Everhart
Available from The Wild Rose Press (a Miniature Rose).

Sun, sea... and damp caves?
If you know anything about Europe, you'll understand that the combination isn't that unusual. Calie Stewart is determined to enjoy all three throughout her vacation on the Adriatic Sea. Sunbathing, sea-fishing, and exploring ancient caves. Far away from manipulative agencies and controlling ex-lovers.
But when she discovers the one cave she hoped to find, she also realizes that some jobs are more than professions. They are destinies. And overbearing males are unavoidable. As are ancient secrets, true love, and heartbreak.
Take a trip to the sun-heated shores of Croatia and go on a roller-coaster ride with Valerie Everhart as we dodge smugglers, free a dragon, and cheer for Calie. Can a dragon bound to visit a little village for ten days once a century find true love with an ordinary woman? Let Valerie Everhart tell you in The Dragon of Croatia.

Valerie Everhart is also working on her part of the Song of the Muses anthology, coming out this spring in e-book format, and this fall in print, from The Wild Rose Press.

A very Special Project Announced for the Opening of this Blog:

At The Wild Rose Press, Where Romance Blooms
Announcing the special release of On The Run All proceeds from this fabulous romantic suspense novel will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Show your support today!

More from the Editor of The Wild Rose Press:

"We don't usually release books on Mondays but I asked RJ to give this book its own day of the week and she agreed. "On the Run", by Judith Rochelle is a Crimson Rose full length novel and is available today in electronic format and will be in print in a couple weeks.
This project deserves your attention because every dime will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. As writers we have been blessed with a talent that not just anyone has. We can say things that others read and understand and possibly learn about. We can spread information to our writing loops and organizations that reaches far across the country and into other nations. I hope that this is one time when you will take this and truly spread the word as only writers can. I've been very very blessed to have not only three very healthy sons, but cousins and nephews and nieces and children in my life who have been healthy and happy and strong.
Sometimes we all have to take a reality check and realize that there are families out there truly suffering due to their children's long term illnesses. Maybe some of these children are in your family and circle of friends. St. Jude's is an amazing hospital in Memphis, TN that supports and helps families and children of long term illnesses. I ask all of you to please copy the following information which is going to be posted on our web site tomorrow and foward to your loops everywhere. Together, all of us can raise some amazing money to help St. Jude's continue their work. Romance review sites, romance magazines and pretty much any web site we spoke to agreed to publicize this project.
Judith Rochelle, is one of our multipublished authors at The Wild Rose Press as well as a personal friend. In late summer, 2007 I approached her with an idea of a project that would enable RJ and me to give something back for all the wonderful things that had happened to us since we opened in May 2006. I wanted to find an organization that I felt everyone, everywhere would care about and really embrace. While many qualified, the one that kept coming back to my mind was St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
A few days later, Judith created a synopsis and a proposal for a book incorporating romance, suspense and St. Jude's. It took my breath away at what she'd come up with. Judith wrote the book, RJ and I edited it, and Kim Mendoza did the beautiful cover.
None of us, including the publishing company, will receive any compensation; every penny will go to St. Jude's. Children's Hospital The result of this, is the amazing Crimson Rose book called "On the Run" by Judith Rochelle. The book will be offered in both print and electronic format. The amount raised will be announced on our web site twice a year. The first report to be posted at the end of June 2008. If you've purchased this book, thank you for your contribution to St. Jude's, if you haven't purchased it yet, I strongly encourage you to do so. The download is $5.00 and will go into a special fund to be donated to St. Jude's twice a year.
