Blackburn is living on borrowed time. An ancient curse violently
claims the life of each Blackburn male on his twenty-seventh
birthday. As his approaches, his only hope of survival is a witch who

Mercy
Seymour eagerly counts down the days until the curse will claim
Victor’s life. She watched him murder her mother, and only his
death will free her of the hatred and anger she harbors.
When
fate throws them together in Devil’s Cove, desire simmers between
the handsome pirate and the spirited barkeeper’s niece until they
learn the truth about each other. Desperate for her cooperation,
Victor spirits her away to Blackburn Castle in the Scottish
Highlands, where forces of magic and mists from beyond the grave
weaken her resolve, opening her eyes to the truth of the past.
As
Victor and Mercy unearth the fabled stones needed to break the curse,
they discover that the only weapon powerful enough to destroy hate is
love. But will they have to sacrifice their relationship to save what
means the most to them?

Devil’s
Cove
Tortured
Souls Book 1
 
Shrouded
in unspeakable horror and spoken of only in whispers, the abandoned
Devil’s Cove Manor lures Captain Devlin Limmerick and his
unquenchable thirst for revenge to its doors. Feared as the Devil on
the high seas, the pirate’s desire to avenge his past is matched only
by his hunger for the powerful young medium he has coerced to aid him
in his nefarious quest.
Blinded
from youth and touched with an ability to communicate beyond the
grave, Grace is both feared and revered by the uneasy town folk. Yet
she is powerless against the unrest brewing within the manor walls
and finds herself drawn to the Devil’s darkness. Still, she refuses
to sacrifice her soul to set Devlin’s unspeakable plans in motion.
But
an evil lurks within these walls, and their very souls are in
jeopardy. Grace’s presence at the manor spurs inexplicable
happenings, forcing Devlin to believe nothing is as dead as it seems
– not even his heart. Plunged into the throes of passion and danger,
they discover the only way out is to search deep within and summon
the courage to believe in true love.

writing on weekends to complete the manuscript.

Ione’s Dilemma by Linda Carroll-Bradd

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017
As a young girl, Linda was often found
lying on her bed reading about fascinating characters having exciting
adventures in places far away and in other time periods. In later years, she
read and then started writing romances and achieved her first publication–a
confession story. Married with 4 adult children and 2 granddaughters, Linda now
writes heartwarming contemporary and historical stories with a touch of humor
and a bit of sass from her home in the southern California mountains.

When Ione Forrester calls off her
wedding, she becomes the social pariah of Des Moines. Much to her society
parents’ chagrin. To escape the gossip, Ione accepts a teaching job in Dorado,
Texas, vowing to avoid scandal at all costs. Relocating from a doctor’s
household with cook and maids to a room in a boarding house is quite an
adjustment. Then she has to face her biggest challenge—a schoolhouse full of
students.

 

 
Carpenter Morgan Shipley’s business is
doing well and now he’s looking for companionship. An ad for a mail-order bride brings a deluge of letters, which prove more than he can handle. To his
surprise, an intriguing woman from a big city arrives in his small Texas town.
Correspondence is nothing like interacting with a flesh-and-blood woman every
day. But gossip-leery Ione wants nothing to do with Morgan’s attempts at
courting, which makes him try even harder.

In the
next instant, Ione shot upright and clamped a hand on the wooden slat in front
of her. Blood pounded in her ears, and she thought she might faint. Last night,
Bradford told her he had to attend a lecture series and couldn’t accompany her
to the opera house performance of Das Rheingold. So why was he
canoodling with another woman on a trolley at eleven in the morning?
