Excerpt #1

The peculiar smile that crossed the face of the Ranger eluded the two candidates. He pressed a button on the black plastic box on the right side of his desk and asked his secretary to bring in two contracts.

While there was a lull in the conversation, the Ranger felt compelled to inform his recruits of a few inconsequential matters.

“You know…” He pulled out a pack of cigarettes and offered one to his guests. “Most of these jobs are anywhere from 100 to 250 miles from any real civilization.”

The recruits were thinking, good…no supervision.

“The job can be a little dangerous sometimes.” Eric and Mickey gave each other the smile that said, ‘We laugh in the face of death.’

As the secretary popped through the door, the Ranger spoke as if he were conversing with the plant in corner of his office. “Yeah, we’ve lost fifteen men in the last five years.”

“Lost…lost…like they got lost in the woods…somebody misplaced them?” Eric glanced at the application; suddenly it looked like a coiled serpent.

The Ranger put on a serious face that could have come out of any horror movie. “No. Lost…like in dead, or at least missing.”

in the City Book 4

J.M. Bronston
Genre:
Contemporary Romance 
 
Marge
Webster has always known what she wanted, and how to accomplish it.
As editor-in-chief of 
Lady
Fair
 magazine,
she’s got influence and fame, a social calendar as packed as her
closet, and a gorgeous attorney boyfriend. Jerry is successful,
loving, and ready to settle down. As for Marge—she just feels
exhausted. Maybe that explains her weak knees and fluttering
heartbeat when she runs into Sam Packard, her high-school
crush.

 

 

Back
then, Sam was the most popular and charismatic guy around. He didn’t
always understand Marge’s dreams, but their connection was
undeniable. Marge isn’t that awestruck girl anymore—but for the
first time in her life, she has no idea which path to follow. Maybe
the answer is to step back, take a doctor-ordered European vacation,
and explore exactly what and who makes her happy. The answers might
surprise everyone—especially Marge…

A Soldier’s Christmas Poem (by unknown)

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,

I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.

My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,

My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.

Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,

Transforming the yard to a winter delight.

The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,

Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve. (more…)
