Where
the Bodies Are
The
McAllister Series Book 1
by
L.V. Gaudet
Genre:
Psychological Crime Thriller 
 
Step
into the twisted mind of a serial killer in this disturbing
psychological thriller.

 

 

Dead
bodies are being left where they are sure to be found. But, the
killer made a mistake; one victim left for dead survived.

 

 

Kept
in a medically induced coma while she recovers, they can only watch
her and wait for the killer to come back for her.

 

 

While
Detective Michael Underwood protects their only living witness,
Detective Jim McNelly and his reporter friend Lawrence Hawkworth are
determined to find the killer and bring his killing spree to an end.
Instead, they discover a bigger mystery.

 

 

The
killer’s reality blurs between past and present with a compulsion
driven by a dark secret locked in a fractured mind. Overcome by a
blind rage that leaves him wallowing in remorse with the bodies of
victim after victim, he is desperate to stop killing.

 

 

After
learning of his victim’s survival, the killer sees it as a sign
they are meant to be together. Threatening her tenuous grip on life,
he is determined to take back his prize while he continues kidnapping
and murdering young women.

 

 

Accustomed
to a life of abuse, one victim’s experience becomes her refuge in a
desperate bid for survival.

 

 

Instead
of killing her, he keeps Katherine Kingslow imprisoned in the dark
while he continues plotting to take back the Jane Doe in the
hospital. How long can Kathy survive and will she lose her own
mind?

 

 

The
search for the killer will lead to his dark secret buried in the
past, something much larger than a man compelled to kill again and
again.

The
McAllister Farm
The
McAllister Series Book 2
 
Step
back in time to learn the secret behind the bodies in Where the
Bodies Are in this disturbing look at the boy who will grow up to
create the killer.

 

 

1981

 

 

Meet
David McAllister, the boy who will grow up to create the killer.

 

 

In
1981 there was a man who lived on a farm. William McAllister was a
private and reclusive man who, above all else, did not like to have
attention drawn on his family.

 

 

He
wanted only to be left to mind his own business and family and for
the world to do the same. But that very reclusiveness fosters
contempt and suspicion in the people of the small farming community
his family has called home for generations.

 

 

William
McAllister has a son, Jason McAllister. Jason is a troubled boy.
Growing up under his father’s strict rules and isolated from the
normal childhood relationships, he is left to explore his darker
inclinations. Seeing the darker side of Jason, William tries to rein
his son in by bringing him into the family business.

 

 

Just
then a serial killer starts preying on local young women. The
McAllisters quickly find themselves drawn into the spotlight when the
town decides William McAllister is the killer. As the town’s search
for the killer focuses on the McAllister farm and the woods behind
it, the threat to the McAllister secret grows.

 

 

The
McAllister family history is as dark as the secret hiding in the
woods. The attention is a threat to both William McAllister’s
profession and his family. He has no choice but to find the killer
himself. He might not like what he learns.

him how to hide the bodies.

 

 

Michael

Isn’t oatmeal that boring goop that nobody really eats if there’s anything else available?  NOT ANYMORE!

October 13th, 2019
Once Upon a Bowl of Oatmeal (paperback cover)

My latest writing project is very different from anything else I’ve written. It’s a cookbook! But those who know how much I love fantasy might not be surprised that this cookbook ended up with a fantasy theme. Many of the recipes have names inspired by fairy tales or fantasy stories, and I love the hints of fantasy in the two covers designed by the awesome Savannah Jezowski


Why two different covers? The paperback version of the cookbook is an unusual shape, due to the unusual recipe format (more information about that below), so it couldn’t share a cover with the ebook.

Once Upon a Bowl of Oatmeal (ebook cover)

Some people might be surprised, though, that the whole book is focused on oatmeal. After all, isn’t oatmeal that boring goop that nobody really eats if there’s anything else available? 

NOT ANYMORE! In this book, you’ll find recipes for delectable dishes like creamy mango coconut spice oatmeal, cinnamon almond oatmeal, blueberry cream cheese oatmeal, and (my personal favorite:) caramel banana oatmeal with peanut butter. (Okay, so that one is a little closer to the dessert end of the spectrum than the porridge end!) 


Take a look at the book blurb below for more details:

Are you tired of high-sugar, low-health-value instant oatmeals in tiny serving packets full of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives? Once Upon a Bowl of Oatmeal contains 70 hearty recipes packed with natural ingredients and brimful of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. All are gluten free, assuming you use gluten-free oats, and vegan (or they come with a vegan option). Most require no salt so are perfect for a low sodium diet. Almost all of these recipes can be prepared in ten minutes or less, saving you time in your busy morning.
 
Oh … and no more math! Whether you’re cooking just for yourself, for a family of six, or any number in between, every recipe comes in the form of a handy table that shows exactly how much of each ingredient you’ll need for however many servings you want.
 
Tasty enough for kids to crave, but wholesome enough to appeal to health-conscious parents, these mouth-watering recipes will give you plenty of energy for your day while pleasing your taste buds too. Download Once Upon a Bowl of Oatmeal now and say goodbye to artificial breakfasts that don’t fully satisfy.

Take a peek at a few of the fun recipe titles (with pictures courtesy of photographer Denise Johnson). Then scroll down for a free recipe!

And now for a free oatmeal recipe in the unique format I use in Once Upon a Bowl of Oatmeal:

:
One
Man, two kids, ten devices and an internet-sized generation gap
by
William Knight
Genre:
Humorous Fiction 
 
From
a former Guardian and BBC writer, and author of 
The
Donated,
 comes
a hilarious story of mid-life crisis, family, technology, and coping
with the modern workplace.
Jack
Cooper is a depressed, analogue throwback; a cynical, alcoholic
Gen-Xer whose glory days are behind him. He’s unemployed, his
marriage has broken down, he’s addicted to internet hook-ups, and
is deeply ashamed of his son Geronimo, who lives life dressed as a
bear.

 

 

When
Jack’s daughter engineers a job for him at totally-lit tech firm
Sweet, he’s confronted by a Millennial and Zoomer culture he can’t
relate to. He loathes every detail – every IM, gif and emoji –
apart from Freya, twenty years his junior and addicted to
broadcasting her life on social media.

 

 

Can
Jack evolve to fit in at Sweet, or will he remain a dinosaur stuck in
the 1980s? And will he halt his slide into loneliness and repair his
family relationships?

 

 

XYZ
is for every Gen-Xer who ever struggled with a device, and for
everyone else who loves emojis … said no one ever.

 

 

Essential
reading for anyone in the workplace over 40, and a handbook for those
cocky bastards who are not.’

and writes blistering content for technology firms.

 

 

The
Donated, (first published as Generation), is a thriller based on the
dangers of experimenting with viral DNA and ignoring science. It
features a techno-phobic journo.

 

 

XYZ
is a mid-life car crash. Jack Cooper works for a super-cool tech firm
and can’t operate his own mobile phone. Besides, his life is falling
apart because his family is addicted to the internet.

Broken Angels is a fast-paced Alaskan noir filled with characters struggling to survive in a hostile country where there are no second chances

Broken
Angels
by
Russell Heath
Genre:
Mystery 
 
“Heath’s
debut novel is gripping from the get-go.” -Kirkus
Reviews

 

 

 

“Alaska is almost a character all on its own:
beautiful, unpredictable, violent, and unforgiving. Broken Angels is
a compelling debut by a talented new writer.” -Elaine Ford,
winner of the Michigan Literary Award.
 

 

“This book was
amazing, just as Burke brings New Orleans to life Heath puts Alaska
into your soul.” -Judy Smrdel

 

 

“Heath has tapped his
intimate knowledge of Alaska, its people, its coastal communities and
its interior uniqueness and crafted a character-rich, page-turning,
murder mystery.” -An Alaskan

 

 

She
stares at her mother’s clumsy lettering on the envelope. Nine years.
Nine years since she stepped over her mother’s drunken body and into
a cold Alaska night running south, leaving her mother forever. How
did she find me? She hesitates, knowing the letter inside will drag
her home; back into the bleakness of a life with no exit. Kris
Gabriel, Alaska Native, and fierce like a wolverine, returns to
Alaska–to find her mother murdered. Guilty she abandoned her in
life, Kris only knows to fight. Relentlessly, she tracks a trail of
pain, of lost love, of lives ripped apart by the frozen north’s
unyielding laws, never suspecting that she has far more at stake than
just finding her mother’s killer.

the most haunted, and cursed, locations in their area.

investigator, Alex doesn’t care what it takes. The mansion, however,
has other ideas, as well as some rather restless occupants.

Drawing on a lifelong fascination with reading and history, she spends hours creating historical feeling fantasy worlds and populating them with characters who live and breathe on the page.

New roles. New rules. No margin for
error.
 
 
Zezilia Ilar joins the sept son’s
entourage as a defender. Her growing Talent ability makes her a target for the
Elitists, and her gender makes people question her competence. She must protect
the sept son. Any mistake could be fatal.
 
 
Hadrian Aleron always knew his beliefs
would cause trouble, but he didn’t realize how much. Rebels are rising. He
could lose his title, his position, and if he’s not careful, his life. As the
assassination attempts grow bolder, Hadrian must rely upon his young defender
and their shared faith in the Almighty to keep him from faltering.

Snippet:
Zezilia
Accusing
eyes and a wave of hatred and confusion followed us out the doors of the dining
hall. I wanted to put up a stronger shield around Hadrian, but no amount of
energy was going to block out the spite behind us. It helped that Hadrian was
leading us down the corridor at a pace that kept me trotting to keep up. The
farther we were away from that crowd, the better.
Where
may I have an hour in private?
” Hadrian sent. I was so distracted by the
emotion behind us that for a moment I thought he was asking me. Then my brother
replied.
Taking
a sharp left, Hadrian flung open the next set of double doors and swept into
one of the side rooms off the main corridor. With quick orders from Renato, two
defenders took up stations on either side of the doors while the remaining four
followed us into the room and closed the doors behind us.
“Guard
the windows from the outside,” Renato ordered. I heard them obey, but I didn’t
see them because my attention was taken up with watching Hadrian.
He
had crossed directly to the far wall of the room and sagged against it. His
wide shoulders sloped and his head fell forward as though it was too heavy for
him to lift. This alone would have concerned me, but the storm of pain, fear,
anger, and frustration that warred within him was what tore a cry of help to
the Almighty from my heart.
Almighty,
help him. Give me wisdom. What can I do to ease his pain? Please, God, give him
peace.
“Hadrian?”
Renato’s panicked query brought Hadrian eyes to him. “You didn’t eat any of the
fruit, right? Do you need a healer?” My brother stepped forward into the sept
son’s personal space. “What is wrong?”
Hadrian
raised a hand wearily and pushed him back. “I am fine, Renato. Now go fetch
Korneli. I have time for him now.”
“Answer
my question first.”
Hadrian
merely shook his head. “No, I didn’t eat. I am not going to die, Renato. At
least, not at this moment. Now go.”
Nodding,
Renato turned to me. “Come. Korneli is…”
“No,
she stays here.” Both of us turned to regard the sept son. Hadrian had not
moved.
“But,
Master, you said I was to never leave you and her alone.”
“Send
in Plantonio when you leave. He will act as witness. Now go get Korneli before
I throw you out.”
“Yes,
Master.” Executing a sharp salute, he walked toward the door, sending me a
warning look as he passed.
Hadrian
did not move as Plantonio appeared, saluted, and then took station near the
door. I watched Hadrian carefully, monitoring the emotions that kept flaring
from him. Without the life of his dark eyes, his face appeared years older than
I knew him to be. Feathered lines radiated from his closed eyes and deep
crevices bracketed his mouth. The dark circles under his eyes spoke of hours of
lost sleep. A flare of anger distracted me from his face for a moment as I
stepped back from the intensity. His eyes flew open and immediately focused on
my face.
“How
did you know?” he asked. Slowly lifting his head and straightening, he crossed
to the nearest chair and sank into it.
“Pardon?”
“How
did you know it was poisoned?”
“He
intended to kill you.”
“But
how did you know? Did you read his thoughts?”
Fear
flooded through me. The servant hadn’t been a Talent. To read his thoughts
would be worthy of grave punishment. “No, he was projecting the emotions of a
man afraid of getting caught. When I saw him exchange the dishes, I knew why.”
He
closed his eyes and laid his head against the chair back. Pain washed over me
as his forehead tightened.
“Headache?”
I asked before thinking.
He
smiled bitterly. “The cost of stress and tension.”
“Where
does it hurt?”
He
sighed wearily. “Are you sure you want details?” He opened one dark brown eye
and squinted at me.
“Is
there anything I can do to help?”
Hadrian
closed his eye. “Yes. Come and sit in the chair across from me, so I don’t have
to keep looking up at you.”
I
quickly moved to obey, carefully stepping over his sprawled legs to reach the
chair. “Does this often happen, Sept Son?”
“What?”
He lifted a hand to massage his forehead. “The headaches?”
“No,
the attempts on your life.”
“More
often than I would like. I haven’t had this close a brush in a while.”
“Who
wants you dead?”
He
looked at me from beneath the shade of his hand. “The better question is who
doesn’t want me dead, Zez. The mesitas, half the kings, and most of the
worshipers of the goddess wish me out of the picture permanently.”
I
didn’t know what to say. I knew without a doubt that my father was one of the
group that wished Hadrian ill. What words does one offer a man who has recently
faced death?
“I
don’t hold it against you, Zez. Your father’s position has not affected my
trust in you or Renato. In fact, Renato’s closeness to me has limited some of
the attacks because Ilar doesn’t want to harm his son.” He paused for a few
moments. “I am sorry to bring you into the midst of this. This isn’t the place
for you.”
I
shook my head. He was wrong. “This is where I am supposed to be. If I hadn’t
been here, the Almighty wouldn’t have used me to prevent your death.” I
shuddered slightly at the thought. “I am the most qualified in many ways, and
you are going to teach me so that I can grow even more skilled. He has a
purpose for me here.”
He
laughed softly. “I can’t argue with that. His purpose is the only thing that
keeps me here. Though, I fear at times, Zez, that I am not going to survive
this. Each time I face my mortality, I wonder what the Almighty has in store.
All it would take is one moment when He decides not to show me grace and stop
the assassin’s hand. One time and all I have worked for would be gone.”
“He
has promised that what He has purposed will come to pass.” I quoted one of my
favorite passages of the Revelation to him. “I shall pray that He will continue
to spare you.”
Lowering
his hand, Hadrian looked at me and smiled slowly. “Thank you, Zez. Your prayers
will guard my soul while your Talent will guard my body. I will do the same for
you and, Almighty willing, we shall survive. If not, at least we shall be at
peace.” Then he quoted another favorite passage of mine. It spoke of the
instantaneous transformation at death when a believer steps from his own body
into the presence of the Almighty.

DV
Berkom is the USA Today bestselling author of two action-packed
thriller series featuring strong female leads (Leine Basso and Kate
Jones). Her love of creating resilient, women characters
stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and
thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those
pages.

 

 

Raised
in the Midwest, she earned a BA in political science and promptly
moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years and many
adventures later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked. The Kate
Jones adventure thriller, Bad Spirits, was first published in 2010 as
an online serial, and was immediately popular with Kindle and Nook
fans. Dead of Winter, Death Rites, and Touring for Death soon
followed before she began the far grittier Leine Basso thriller
series in early 2012 with Serial Date.

 

 

DV
currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Mark, and
several imaginary characters who like to tell her what to do.

Jess returns to Rwanda, despite warnings from the Belgian Secret Service that Gatera plans to assassinate her

October 7th, 2019
Hunting
the Devil
by
Suanne Schafer
Genre:
Medical Thriller, Crime Mystery, Dark Romance  
 
When
Dr. Jessica Hemings volunteers for a medical mission in Rwanda, she
becomes entrapped in the maelstrom of Rwandan politics and the enmity
between Hutus and Tutsis. Her Tutsi features plunge her into the
Rwandan Genocide. Dr. Cyprien Gatera, Jess’s superior and a Hutu
radical, commandeers her clinic, slaughters her patients and her
adopted sons, then forces her to treat his wounded. She escapes and
survives three weeks in hiding before finding refuge at Benaco
refugee camp in Tanzania.

 

 

There,
Jess vows revenge. She searches for Gatera with the help of Michel
Fournier, a French lawyer-turned-war-correspondent, and Dr. Tom
Powell, her long-time lover. When an unknown informant passes
information to Jess about her nemesis, she returns to Rwanda, despite
warnings from the Belgian Secret Service that Gatera plans to
assassinate her. In their final showdown, Jess must decide if revenge
is best served cold—or not at all.

Suanne
Schafer, born in West Texas at the height of the Cold War, finds it
ironic that grade school drills for tornadoes and nuclear war were
the same: hide beneath your desk and kiss your rear-end goodbye. Now
a retired family-practice physician whose only child has fledged the
nest, her pioneer ancestors and world travels fuel her
imagination.

 

 

 

She originally planned to write romances, but
either as a consequence of a series of failed relationships or a
genetic distrust of happily-ever-after, her heroines are strong women
who battle tough environments and intersect with men who might—or
might not—love them.

Re:
Camelot
The
Complete Edition
by
E.C. Fisher
Genre:
Epic Fantasy 
 
Seventeen-year-old
Arthur Godwin-Dragos finds himself much unlike his childhood heroes
who fought for the grace and honor of Camelot. Banished to a bleak
boarding school in England, Arthur cannot help but retreat into the
fantasy of his mother’s old tales. Longing for his own destiny to
assuage his loneliness and despair, Arthur withers in exile in wait
for something more.

 

 

In
the stillness, however, the hands of fate begin to turn. Across the
universe, far out of reach of time or space, the planet Avalon grows
dim. The ancient sorceress Merlin awakes from a fevered dream–as
prophecy calls out through the darkness. Sealed and forgotten,
Morgana la Fey stirs in the dark, biding her time to strike against
Merlin and Avalon. Once again must the legend of King Arthur awaken,
and with the power of the mighty Excalibur, beat back the
insufferable darkness once and for all.

I must dare to be different in a world where I’m unwelcome in order to save the one person left in my life, my half-sister Addie

October 4th, 2019
Shadow
World Trilogy Boxed Set
by
Brandy Nacole
Genre:
Urban Fantasy
 
I
must dare to be different in a world where I’m unwelcome in order
to save the one person left in my life, my half-sister Addie.

 

This
deluxe boxed set contains the complete Bestselling Shadow World
Trilogy (Uniquely Unwelcome, Blood Burdens, and Sacrifice: A New
Dawn).

 

Enjoy
the thrill as power is pushed to its limit, hearts are broken, and
some pay the ultimate price as Racquel fights an ancient evil that is
determined to make the Earth bleed, and Racquel with it.

 

The
box set includes:
Uniquely
Unwelcome
The
Shadow World Volume 1
Racquel
is unique. The bloodlines of four of the most powerful beings in the
Shadow World are intertwined within her DNA. She has never craved
attention. She just wants to be able to live as normal life as she
can. But she’s about to find that even though she’s uniquely
unwelcome wherever she goes, her abilities also make her the best
chance the Shadow World has to stop a threat to all the Shadow races.
Once arriving home, Racquel finds that greater evils exist and that
the person she cares for most in this world, her half-sister Addie,
has been kidnapped along with other Shadow World beings. Racquel
finds herself facing horrible odds with those who would rather see
her dead than alive. As her journey continues, Racquel learns more
about herself, what she is capable of, and that not every being looks
at her as an abomination. Coy, a human captive that Racquel saves
from the Vampires, starts showing kindness toward her. Racquel tries
putting distance between her and the human boy but as they spend more
time together it becomes harder and harder for Racquel to fight the
affection she wants and needs. But will Coy’s friendship and her new
found discoveries be enough to help Racquel unravel the strangest
mystery that has ever plagued the Shadow World?
Blood
Burdens
The
Shadow World Trilogy Volume 2
As
someone with four Shadow bloodlines, Racquel is uniquely unwelcome
even among her fellow werewolves, shape-shifters, vampires, and
witches. Growing up, she was bullied and tormented for being a
“hybrid,” a condition frowned upon by Shadow society. After
saving her sister and a number of other kidnapped Shadows from a
diabolical plot to create a Shadow army, many have found a new
respect for Racquel, but she is far from accepted in Shadow society,
and the evil is far from over. To complicate matters, Racquel now
finds herself torn between two brothers. Coy is caring and has helped
Racquel through her struggles, and Micah, who Racquel has only met
once but who is somehow, having dream conversations with him. Racquel
becomes torn between following her heart while breaking it at the
same time. In the second installment of the Shadow World series,
Racquel and her sister Addie face off with the Shadow leaders against
a threat that could bring the world to its knees. Power will be
pushed to its limit, hearts will be broken, and some will pay the
ultimate price as Racquel and her group of Shadows fight against an
ancient evil that is determined to make the earth bleed and Racquel
with it.
Sacrifice:
A New Dawn
The
Shadow World Trilogy Book 3
Racquel
was once uniquely unwelcome, an outcast in both the human and Shadow
worlds. In desperation, the Shadows—the loose alliance of Vampires,
Werewolves, Witches, Shape Shifters and Faeries—turned to Racquel
for help against the sorceress Cerelia, who threatened all Shadows.
Now that Racquel has protected the Shadows by defeating Cerelia, it
seems like things are picking up. Racquel is ready to challenge the
Shadows’ Ruling Council on the injustice of the laws that made her
and her family outcasts among the Shadows, and which is causing
suffering among her friends. Racquel has little time to enjoy her
victory. Micah, an innocent subjected to experiments by Cerelia and
now the only other person in the world like Racquel, is summoned to
appear before the Ruling Council to be examined. The Council has
already warned that if Micah is deemed to be “unclean” and a
threat to the Shadows, he will be executed. And there are agendas
hidden in agendas, as well. A secret faction wants to challenge
Racquel, who they still see as being an unclean creature due to her
mixed-Shadow heritage. Worse still, the mysterious prophecy made by
Kaya, queen of the Fay, is about to become true, and Racquel is about
to be faced with her deepest fear: that she is still unwelcome in the
world. Betrayed trust and a new danger to the Shadow world are
waiting for Racquel, and in the end, she may have to make the
ultimate sacrifice in order to save the world and her friends from
destruction.

Goldberg Stein is lost in grief. Her beloved husband, Jake Stein, has

another life with Jake. What is going on? What is the message?

 

 

Jake
Stein, a dashing Texan, sweeps Aurora off her feet and changes her

through time revealing to her the mistakes she’s made with Jake Stein
through the centuries. This time, maybe this time, Aurora can get it
right.

I
get so much satisfaction in the writing process. I take care to
choose just the right word, to make sure each sentence has the right
cadence. I appreciate other writers who respect the craft in this
way, and I hope my readers do so with me. Writing is a need, a desire
for expression, and springs from well within my subconscious mind.
Thoughts rise up, scenes rise up and blend in with the over-arching
story. These thoughts emerge whenever they want to and wherever I am
and probably not when I am at the computer. The computer is for the
craft, the technique. The thoughts come during walks, or while
driving the car, or at the grocery store. I am the willing recipient
of these thoughts and so they seek me out. It’s a mystery this
business and art of writing and it keeps me enthralled.

Just as their plans start falling back into place, the wheel of life doles out a tragedy that will test them on every level

September 27th, 2019

 

From
the Moment We Met
A
Series of Moments Book 1
by
M.L. Broome
Genre:
Contemporary Romance 
 
Sometimes
you’re interested. Sometimes you can’t be bothered. Sometimes
love doesn’t give you a choice. In Jacob and Lilly’s case, love
isn’t letting either of them go.

 

 

Jacob
Edmonton has a plan for his life, but it doesn’t include love. He
was Hollywood’s quintessential golden boy—until a
flash-in-the-pan fling with a high-profile singer upended his
world—and his reputation. Now he’s nursing more than a wounded
ego and his only goal is to repair the damage.

 

 

But
his return to superstardom is shot to hell when his sister winds up
undergoing emergency surgery. There he meets Lilly Staver, a
straight-shooting nurse who’s as brutally honest as she is
beautiful. She sees through his suave façade and he wants to hate
her until he realizes he can’t resist her.

 

 

Lilly
knows all about men like Jacob Edmonton—if you’ve seen one
pretentious, egocentric celebrity—you’ve seen them all. She’s
unimpressed with his Hollywood pedigree and his belief that love is
reserved solely for maniacs. So why can’t she stop thinking about
him? Her mind tells her to run as fast as she can from Jacob…but
her heart isn’t listening.

 

 

Love
as they know it just took a hairpin turn into uncharted territory,
but when Jacob’s former girlfriend shows up with an opportunity to
salvage his career, will he choose the life he knows or the love he
never knew existed?

 

 

This
is the first of three books in ‘A Series of Moments’, chronicling the
timeless and heart-wrenching love story of Jacob Edmonton & Lilly
Staver.

Unguarded
Moments
A
Series of Moments Book 2
 
From
the Moment We Met”, the first book in the romantic saga, A Series
of Moments, introduced us to Jacob Edmonton and Lilly Staver, and a
love neither believed possible. But life is all about the choices you
carry with you and those you leave behind. Love is no
different.

 

 

Now,
in “Unguarded Moments”, Jacob realizes that his actions have
consequences, and his heart is paying the price.

 

 

Jacob
made a choice. Now, in “Unguarded Moments”, he realizes he’s
made the wrong one. The lights of Hollywood do shine, but not nearly
as bright as the light of love. He’s ready to fight tooth and nail to
bring Lilly back into his life but is it too late to undo the
damage?

 

 

Lilly
saw the writing on the wall, but she chose to follow her heart
instead. Her foolish, naïve heart. She’s learned her lesson many
times over—loving Jacob was a bad idea in every sense of the word.
She vows to never make the same mistake again…but can she resist
the one man who still holds all the pieces of her shattered soul? She
gave him her love, but instead of loving her back—he watched her
walk away.

 

 

Thousands
of kilometers lie between them now, but the distance isn’t Jacob’s
toughest hurdle. It will be far more difficult to convince Lilly that
loving him wasn’t the gravest mistake she’s ever made.

 

 

The
heart wants what the heart wants—but can Lilly believe in Jacob
again, or will her fears end any chance of their
reconciliation?

 

 

This
is the second of three books in ‘A Series of Moments’, chronicling
the timeless and heart-wrenching love story of Jacob Edmonton &

Beautifully
Broken Moments
A
Series of Moments Book 3
 
A
Series of Moments
follows the journey of Jacob
Edmonton, a world-famous actor, and Lilly Staver, the nurse who saved
him from himself. “Beautifully Broken Moments” is the
stunning conclusion in the trilogy, but after all the upheaval, will
Jacob and Lilly ever find their Happily Ever After?
All
it takes is a moment—one moment can change the course of your
life—and love.
With
a single statement during a press conference, Jacob upended his
world, destroying his happiness and heart in the process. When his
ex-girlfriend Victoria claimed she was not only engaged to the acting
legend but also expecting his child, Jacob went along with the
charade. But his actions were not to salvage his reputation or
career; they were to protect the only thing that mattered—his real
fiancée, Lilly. To save her from the backlash of Victoria’s
jealousy and rage, Jacob let go of the only woman he had ever loved.
As
the truth behind the events of the last several months shifts into
sharp focus, Jacob is left with one final choice—move on without
Lilly or fight with everything in his being to reunite with the love
of his life. For Jacob, it’s the easiest decision he’s ever made.
Lilly
watched her dreams crumble on international television when Jacob
claimed she was ‘a brief fling’; too bad her heart never received
the memo. Devastated by his most recent betrayal, she plans to flee
England and Jacob forever, intent on escaping their tempestuous
romance, until she learns the reality behind Jacob’s actions.
Just
as their plans start falling back into place, the wheel of life doles
out a tragedy that will test them on every level. Is Jacob’s love
enough to carry them through or is the trail of heartache too
difficult for Lilly to traverse again?

Life
is a series of adventures, waiting to be explored.

 

 

That’s
how I look at life, the greatest adventure we will ever experience.
My name is Julie Soper and I write under the pen name M.L. Broome
(the M.L. stands for Mezza Luna). The name came to me in a dream,
which is how many of my story ideas also appear.

 

 

My
motto is that I’m a believer in love and a lover of life, even when
life isn’t being kind or pretty. I’ve seen the darker side of human
suffering through my years as an ICU nurse and nurse educator, but in
those dark days, I also witnessed the depths of strength present in
everyone. We are extraordinary beings when we allow ourselves the
freedom to dream.

 

 

I’ve
always created stories, with most remaining locked in the vault of my
mind. But the story of Jacob and Lilly wasn’t satisfied being
relegated to the confines of my head, and their tale of love found
and lost was birthed into the world.

 

 

I
hope you enjoy their love story. I know I do. I love these
characters, even when their actions drive me to the brink of
madness.

 

 

Love,
light, and magic
