Distracted by heartbreak, he is caught off-guard by a military coup

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

 

Adam Gowans is the youngest of five Air Force brats, out of which his siblings have voted him the weirdest. He loves anything that deals with stories, including movies, novels, television dramas, music, video games, manga/manhwa, and webtoons.
In his mid-twenties, he lived and taught English in South Korea for four years before returning to the States to live, like many LDS authors, in Utah.
His first novel is On Angelic Wings, which has a planned sequel, but the sequel will be released after two other novels that are calling for his attention.

 

Ever since magic caused his mother’s death, Ha-Neul, crown prince of Balhae, hates witches and the magic they wield. He has instituted harsh laws against all magic users.
 

 

Lisa is a young witch working undercover as a servant in his palace, hoping to gain freedom for her people. The last thing the two expect is to fall in love. But when Ha-Neul learns that Lisa is not only a witch, but the daughter of the Prince of Vires, land of witches, he banishes her. Distracted by heartbreak, he is caught off-guard by a military coup.
In hiding and on the run, Ha-Neul swallows his pride and travels with his siblings to Vires, planning to beg Lisa’s aid, only to learn that she has mysteriously vanished.
Now his only hope in reclaiming his kingdom and reuniting with Lisa lies in the remote Northern Mountains, a country no one has ever penetrated and rumored home of a powerful magic source. There, Ha-Neul learns that a being powerful beyond comprehension has been carefully guiding his destiny. But if Ha-Neul can’t let go of his hatred of all things magic, and accept the new path offered to him, it will mean the destruction of his entire world.

The
Enigma Broker
The
Enigma Series Book 8
by
Charles V. Breakfield & Roxanne E. Burkey
Genre:
Techno Thriller
 
 
Inexplicable
drops in world markets for oil, copper, coal, and other commodities
are destabilizing nations to the point of economic collapse. A
conspicuous increase in production numbers for primary oil producing
companies results in a call for help from governments and a large oil
distributor. The R-Group quietly engages amid fears that further
drops in value could devastate civilization.
Jacob
Michaels is called directly by ePetro’s Mike Patrick, CEO of the
multinational oil broker, due to some prior data and network security
he had performed. The early investigation into the production number
manipulation by Jacob, with his coworker and lover, Petra, suggests
the problem is a result of hacking by a Dark Matter Organization.
Where is the DMO operating, who is at the helm driving commodity
prices down, and how does the search evolve into a perilous hunt
which puts Jacob, Petra, and other members of R-Group directly into
the path of mortal danger!?
Hidden
leadership of the DMO is fierce and lethal when it comes to
protecting the organization and its plans of global commodities
market control. The enforcers of this agenda are quick to execute
orders without question as soon as they are issued. R-Group’s
advantage of leading technology resources, brilliant technologists,
and years of experience may not be enough to locate the genius source
bent on commodity market domination. Has cyber good versus evil from
the dark net become a challenge they simply cannot win?
The
Enigma Broker, by Breakfield and Burkey, the award-winning authors of
The Enigma Series, takes readers on a journey from the affluence of
London to the extreme poverty of Panama and everywhere in between.
The layers of planning and conspiracy by the cruel DMO supply
suspense and intrigue to the very end.

Breakfield
and Burkey
 started
writing non-fictional papers and books, but it wasn’t nearly as fun
as writing fictional stories.They found it interesting to use the
aspects of technology that people are incorporating into their daily
lives more and more as a perfect way to create a good guy/bad guy
story with elements of travel to the various places they have
visited, either professionally and personally, humor, romance,
intrigue,suspense, and a spirited way to remember people who have
crossed paths with them. They love to talk about their stories with
private and public book readings. Burkey is also conducting regular
radio interviews with other authors,which is interesting. Her first
interview was, wait for it, Breakfield. You can often find them at
local book fairs or other family oriented events. 

 

 

The
original series is based on a family organization called R-Group.
Recently they have spawned a subgroup that contains some of the
original characters as the Cyber Assassins Technology Services (CATS)
team. The authors have ideas for continuing the series in both of
these tracks. They track the more than 150 characters on a
spreadsheet, with a hidden avenue for the future coined The Enigma
Chronicles tagged in some portions of the stories. Fan reviews seem to
frequently suggest that these would make good television or movie
stories, so the possibilities appear endless, just like their ideas
for new stories.
They have completed book video trailers
for each of the stories,which can be viewed on YouTube, Amazon’s
Authors page, or on their website, 
enigmabookseries.com.
Their website is routinely updated with new interviews, answers to
readers’ questions, book trailers, and contests. You may also find it
fascinating to check out the fun acronyms they create for the stories
but summarize on their website.

Heroes
paint the big screen, but a violent opponent interferes with true
love, driving one actor to prove he’s more than a script. 

 

Easy-going
Lil Reed is like every red-blooded female would be: excited to meet
her first Hollywood A-lister. After all, Grey Richards is the talk of
the town. And she’s the lucky one; his brother is marrying into her
family. But Lil quickly learns an age-old lesson: be careful what you
wish for. Grey is nothing like the charismatic and charming
characters he portrays. This heartthrob is surly, arrogant, and
completely closed off.

 

With
no patience for gossip-reading fan girls, Grey is far from interested
in the youngest Reed sister. And a guy like Grey would never date
outside the elite Hollywood circles. That would be career
suicide.

 

 

However,
when there’s a threat against the Reed sisters, Grey feels compelled
to protect the spunky and adorable woman who somehow wiggled her way
into his heart. With danger closing in, Grey must save the sisters
and prove to Lil that there’s more behind the glamour and glitz. But
will she ignore the fake tabloids for a chance at real love?

Daphne sends Oliver a Facebook message that will come to change the course of both of their senior years–and maybe their entire lives

So
Glad to Meet You
by
Lisa Super
Genre:
YA Contemporary Fiction, Romance
Pub
Date: 7/31/18
 
“At
once bitingly funny and strikingly poignant, Lisa Super’s powerful
debut touches on grief, identity, and first love, the perfect read
for fans of John Green, Mary H. K. Choi and Rainbow Rowell.”
–Julia Lynn Rubin, author of Burro Hills
Daphne
and Oliver have almost nothing in common…

Seventeen-year-old
Daphne Bowman, a bookish drama nerd in public school, might never
have crossed paths with Oliver, the popular, outgoing mascot for his
private school’s football team, but one event has bound them
inextricably. Daphne’s older sister, Emily, and Oliver’s older
brother, Jason, who were high school sweethearts, committed suicide
together seven years earlier.

When Daphne uncovers
Emily and Jason’s bucket list–a list comprised of their “Top
Ten” places to visit before they die–she knows she has to tell
someone. The one person who might actually get what she’s going
through and who might not think it’s silly that she wants to complete
the list, is also someone she’s never spoken to–Oliver Pagano.
Throwing caution to the wind, Daphne sends Oliver a Facebook message
that will come to change the course of both of their senior
years–and maybe their entire lives.

Tackling grief with a
wry voice and an unflinching eye, So Glad to Meet You tells the story
of two people who, in searching for what they’ve lost, end up finding
what they never knew they needed–each other.

Hometown Girl Again

As an author, I take great pleasure in writing about topics that I find interesting, and of course my latest novel is a perfect example. Hometown Girl Again, book five of The Hometown Series, features vintage camp trailers from the 1950s! What could possibly be more romantic? As Katherine learns in the novel, restoring old trailers is actually quite difficult and dirty, but extremely rewarding work.

 

  • Six authentic vintage trailers are featured in the novel, and as the reader you will follow Katherine from her quiet orderly life where every choice is safe, through the unexpected adventure of restoring trailers for her new glamping park.
  • The first trailer in the book, Katherine’s home, is a 1954 Anderson 315-TB, complete with turquoise and chrome exterior, bubble window in the door, polished birch interior walls and ceiling, and a vintage 1950 style bathroom. Among the trailers she loving overhauls is a 33 foot 1950 Spartan Royal Mansion, similar to the one Lucille Ball and Dezi Arnez own in the movie The Long Long Trailer. If you have ever been curious about vintage trailers, this story is for you!

 

Katherine, as well as the other leading ladies in The Hometown Series, have their mind set on a task and just as everything is going great, in walks unexpended complications in the form of a handsome man. These ladies aren’t afraid to work hard and get grimy to make their dreams come true, and of course, they can’t help falling in love. In Hometown Girl Again, Katherine gets the added stressful bonus of falling for her ex, her first love from a decade past. I think most of us experience an inward shudder at the thought, but in all fairness, many us also harbor a tiny hidden place in the back of our heart for our first love.

 

I hope you enjoy returning to Smithville. Of course, the town folk you know and love can’t resist interfering with Katherine and Alex, and the trailers. I’d love to hear what you think about the story, as well as any photos you’d like to share of your vintage trailers!

while,Kassandra can’t help wondering if the wedding could be any
more cliché—until she finds unexpected ways to change things up a
bit.

Book #3

 

by
Barb Hendee
Genre: Historical Fantasy

 

Pub
Date: 8/7/2018
 

 

Kara, as a ward with
no parentage and no future, has been raised knowing nothing outside
her lady’s chambers. Until Royce Capello, a visiting nobleman, is
struck by her ice-pale looks, and demands her as payment for the land
the family needs.
With barely time to
protest, Kara is sold and packed off for a life as a concubine—until
a raiding party descends on Royce’s company and she’s kidnapped
for the second time in as many days.
Whatever happens,
Kara will be alone in the world, inexperienced and fearing even the
vast unfamiliar sky. But one raider gives her a choice—and a magic
mirror appears to show her where each path will lead…
She can leave with
her protector Raven and journey with his performing troupe, competing
for his mercurial affections.
She can flee the
raiders’ settlement, and return to Royce’s manor, chattel among
devious nobility.
Or she can stay in
the settlement, bound to firm, silent Caine, who is as gentle as he
is staid and inscrutable.
Her fates twist and
turn to affect far more than she could have guessed, tangling the
bitter with the sweet—and Kara must choose which consequences she
can live with…
A CHOICE OF
CROWNS
A Dark Glass Novel Book #2
Olivia Geroux knew
her king was reluctant to marry her, whatever the negotiations had
arranged. But she never expected to find handsome, arrogant King
Rowan obsessed with his stepsister instead. And before she can
determine what course to take, she overhears her greatest ally
plotting to murder the princess.
Olivia must act
quickly—and live with whatever chaos results. As the assassin hunts
his prey, a magic mirror appears to show Olivia the three paths that
open before her . . .
If she hesitates
only a moment, the princess will die—and she will become queen.
If she calls for
help, she will gain great power—but she must also thrust away her
own happiness.
If she runs to stop
the murder herself, she will know love and contentment—but her
whole country will suffer.
As she lives out
each path, her wits and courage will be tested as she fights to
protect her people, her friends, and her heart. And deciding which to
follow will be far from easy . . .

Dark Glass Novel Book 1
On her seventeenth
birthday, Megan of Chaumont discovers she’ll be sold as a bride to
the brutish Volodane family—within hours. Her father grants only
that she may choose which one of the ruthless, grasping lord’s three
sons she weds:
Rolf, the eldest:
stern, ambitious, and loyal?
Sebastian, the
second son: sympathetic, sly, and rebellious?
Or Kai, the
youngest: bitter, brooding, and proud?
As shy, horrified
Megan flees the welcome dinner for her in-laws-to-be, she finds an
enchanted mirror that will display how her life unrolls with each
man, as if she were living it out in a breath. But there is no smooth
“happily ever after” in her choices.
Deaths and honors,
joys and agonies, intrigues and escapes await her in a remote,
ramshackle keep, where these rough but complex men reveal one side
and then another of their jagged characters—and bring forth new
aspects of Megan, too. But the decisions of one teenaged
marriage-pawn reverberate much farther than any of them have guessed
. . .

Their last hope at saving Matt’s life will require a sacrifice from each of them

Saturday, August 4th, 2018


Laurie (L.C.) Lewis will always be a Marylander at heart—a weather-whining lover of crabs, American history, and the sea. She admits to being craft-challenged, particularly lethal with a glue gun, and a devotee of sappy movies. Her ninth published novel, her first romance novella, Sweet Water, was inspired by a visit to Oregon’s magnificent coastline, and time spent with Mother Eugenie, upon whom the character Mother Thomasine is based. 

 
Laurie’s women’s fiction novels include The Dragons of Alsace Farm (2016), Awakening Avery (2010), and Unspoken (2004), written as Laurie Lewis. 
 
Using the pen name L.C. Lewis, she wrote the five volumes of her award-winning FREE MEN and DREAMERS historical fiction series, set against the backdrop of the War of 1812: Dark Sky at Dawn (2007), Twilight’s Last Gleaming (2008), Dawn’s Early Light (2009), Oh, Say Can You See? (2010), and In God is Our Trust, (2011).

She is currently completing a political suspense novel planned for a summer 2017 release, a re -release of a romantic comedy, and she’s working on another historical fiction novel for a 2018 release. She loves to hear from readers.
Matthew Grayken is young, successful, and dying, which is why he’s about to propose to a total stranger. He isn’t interested in love. He needs a caregiver, a companion, and someone to be his legal voice when he can no longer speak for himself.

 

 
Lonely, compassionate nurse Mikaela Compton is intrigued by Matt Grayken’s tender request, but when their friendly marriage turns into love, she rejects the inevitability of Matt’s death and prays for a miracle instead.
 
Mikaela succeeds in reigniting Matt’s will to fight, but his body is losing the battle, and her determination to save him causes her to betray the fundamental promise she made him–to help him die peaceably.
 
Their last hope at saving Matt’s life will require a sacrifice from each of them, and force them to decide how far out on a limb they’re willing to go for love.

 

Snippet:
             “Mikaela swallowed hard, and leaned forward. “So why marry me? Why not just hire me?”
“Because I don’t want to be the pitiful soul with only an attorney, billing hourly, as his voice. I want a wife with the legal power to speak for me when I can’t speak for myself and the personal connection no one else will challenge.”
“Like your parents when they come to take control of your care.”
“As well-intentioned as they’d be, yes. And I trust you.”
“You’d be pitting me against them.” She leaned back, but he was impressed that she wasn’t discounting everything he had said. “No. I would make my wishes clear. You would just enforce them when I no longer can.” He leaned farther forward, to close the distance between them, and looked straight into her eyes. “I know you’re alone, and I know money’s an issue. I can fix that. I have a lovely home that will be yours when I’m gone. And I’ll pay off your debts and provide tuition to medical school. You’ll be a doctor, Mikaela.”

I didn’t really understand what love was

Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

 

“Sally Britton is sixth generation Texan, received her BA in English from Brigham Young University, and reads voraciously. She started her writing journey at the tender age of fourteen on an electric typewriter, and she’s never looked back.
 
 
Sally lives in Arizona with her husband, four children, and their dog. She loves researching, hiking, and eating too much chocolate.”
“I didn’t really understand what love was. 
I didn’t know what it meant, that I should’ve fought harder for it.”
 
Banished from home by her angry father, Julia Devon travels to Bath to fulfill her role as family spinster by assisting her cousin, Lady Macon, in caring for her dying husband.
 
Nathaniel Hastings’s life runs in a predictable pattern, until a routine visit to one of his ailing patients brings him face to face with Julia, the woman who broke his heart five years before in London.
 
Julia and Nathaniel find themselves unlikely allies as they work together to tend to the family’s needs, fend off Lady Macon’s scheming brother-in-law, and avoid confronting the pain of their shared past. But could this accidental meeting be their second chance at love?”

 

Snippet:
“Father did not approve and never would have. Nathaniel—Doctor Hastings—had dreams of becoming a physician. I could not ask him to wait for me, putting an added burden upon him, and I never
could’ve convinced Father.”
 
“But Julia, if you loved him—”
 
“I didn’t really understand what love was,” Julia said hastily. “I didn’t know what it meant, that I should’ve fought harder for it.”

Their hope is that she will slowly be able to jog his memory and cushion the blow

When
Time Stands Still
by
Sara Furlong-Burr
Genre:
Romance
 
It’s
been nearly a decade since Elle Sloan last saw Luke Hutchins. Close
to ten years since she broke up with him over a single phone call,
providing him with little explanation. Since the end of their
relationship, Elle has done everything she could do to move on,
marrying, proceeding forward with her life, almost allowing herself
to completely forget about Luke.

 

 

Almost.

 

 

Out
of nowhere, Elle receives a phone call from Luke’s mother. Luke has
been in a horrific car accident and, a month later, has just awoken
from a coma. However, instead of celebrating, his family is stunned
to learn that Luke is suffering from amnesia and only remembers his
life as it was before his breakup with Elle. Not wanting to tell Luke
that he and Elle aren’t together anymore for fear it may compromise
his recovery, Elle is asked by Luke’s family to come to the
hospital to see him. Their hope is that she will slowly be able to
jog his memory and cushion the blow.

 

 

Guilt-ridden
over how their relationship ended, Elle readily agrees, finding
herself transported back in time with Luke to the life they once
shared and the future they could have had together.

Chasing
the Wild Sparks
Wild
Sparks Series #1
by
Ren Alexander
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 

Throwing
down the marriage gauntlet has never been so wild.

Thirty-something
paralegal, Hadley Beckett and charismatic, local
sportscaster/daredevil, Finn Wilder, disagree about how they should
share their lives together. Having been together for three years,
Finn increasingly pressures Hadley to move in with him, but being
unusually traditional, she wants to be married first, adhering to her
moral beliefs, just as he clings to his own religious upbringing when
it comes to procreating with her. Each is unwilling to negotiate or
concede marriage to the other. Complicating matters is Finn’s
seemingly double life, keeping his private life hidden to the point
of convincing his viewers—Finnatics—and even his coworkers, he’s
single, amid Hadley’s objections. Yet despite their immense
disparities, they are determined to make their relationship work,
even if it means Hadley has to take their future into her own hands.
Then
again, Finn Wilder has his own story to tell.

Presley Hale has no idea the guy she just told off, died in a drowning accident four months ago

Friday, July 20th, 2018

 

Catina worked her way through college as a TV reporter and a dating game show host. She’s a sucker for Young Adult romance stories (both real and make-believe). She has a panache for match-making and loves that many of her “set-ups” have resulted in marriages. 
 
After spending most of her adult life in Las Vegas, Catina traded in tumbleweeds for earthquakes and now lives with her husband and four children near San Diego, California. If she’s not home, chances are you can find her at the beach, Disneyland or In-N-Out Burger. 

Angela Larkin writes clean teen romance and is a big fan of kissing (in life and in books). She’s been a gold miner, a pool cleaner, a mannequin dresser, and a teacher. She’s lived a true romance: meeting her husband in a case of mistaken identity. They recently moved with their four children from the sparkling city of Las Vegas to the shade of the North Carolina Pines. Chances are, she’s reading past bedtime.
 
“Dangerous. Wrong.
She could be so close to finding out who I really am, and I don’t want to think about how badly that could damage her. If I have any conscience, I’ll turn and run. But I can’t let her go.”
Presley Hale has no idea the guy she just told off in the school parking lot died in a drowning accident four months ago. Why would she? It’s not like she knows she can see the dead. Stunned by Presley’s sixth sense, Landon Blackwood rethinks his planned departure and begins tracking her to find answers to their mysterious connection.

When their complicated relationship turns dangerous, they learn that tampering with the boundaries of death comes with consequences. Can Landon save Presley from the insidious spirits who have marked her for death, or was their love doomed from the beginning?

Snippet:
“Seriously? Eggs?” I’d meant that to remain a private rant. Oops.
Several nearby classmates watched me appraise my Jeep, which I could see even from across the parking lot, dripped with yellow slime. This was just the latest slap in the face of my first week at Truckee High.
My first day of school, someone was kind enough to smear a roast beef hoagie on my windshield. It took five bucks in quarters at the do-it-yourself car wash to clean off the mayo haze.
Day three. After P.E., my clothes disappeared from the girls’ locker room forcing me to finish out the day in my uniform. These small-town punks made it hard to fly under the radar. I just wanted to get my senior year done and get out of this place.
Most people would be furious at these anonymous jerks. But I was madder at my mom for moving Chase and me two weeks before my senior year started.
“It’s a great opportunity, Pres,” she’d said. For who? I could live with the change, but this was going to be hard on Chase.
It wasn’t that Truckee, California didn’t have its perks. At the very least it was different from Vegas. Towering Ponderosa pines covered the mountains and enveloped every structure in town. Like they gave permission for each building to exist, but they loomed, threatening to reclaim the real estate. I’d smiled at the first of many baby pine trees I’d noticed growing like weeds in the cracks of the sidewalks.
Truckee was pretty quiet with school back in session but I could tell by the rows of ski rental shops and paddle board stores that winter and summer would be a different story. Lake Tahoe, with its freakishly clear blue water, was a pleasant surprise, as I’d spent the last two years in the Mojave Desert where the only nearby lake was a carp-filled stink hole. Cool town. Not-so-cool people.
Taking a deep breath and pulling my shoulders back, I walked to my Jeep. The tell-tale sting of tears betrayed me as eggshells crunched under my shoes. Trying to appear casual and composed, I pulled a hair band from my wrist and gathered my uncooperative curls into a top knot. I turned my back on a group of eager spectators, and hefted my bag onto an egg-free patch of hood to dig for my keys. My phone vibrated. I ignored it.
Of course my keys were lost in the black abyss of my backpack.  I felt unwelcomed eyes on me as I searched. Finally, with keys in hand I opened the door and hurled my bag onto the passenger seat. 
Then, I caught sight of a face I hadn’t seen before. 
A good eight to ten cars away, he stood at the edge of the parking lot in the shade of the pines, arms folded across his chest, and studied me like some nightclub bouncer who was handed a fake I.D. (If bouncers looked like raven-haired H&M models.) The boy was shameless. He stared, unabashedly, and the longer he looked at me, the more flattered I felt.
That is, until I realized what he was probably looking for a reaction to my messed up Jeep. Wasn’t that what the girls behind me were smugly discussing? Wasn’t that why those freshman boys avoided eye contact when I walked by?
My cheeks flamed and I surprised myself by yelling across the lot at him, “What? What are you looking at?”
He flinched and unfolded his arms. His eyes locked onto mine and I matched him.
“Yeah, you!” I jabbed my chin in the air. Bring it dude.
His eyes narrowed, and then he started toward me. An older man I hadn’t noticed before quickly grabbed his shoulder and tried to pull him back. The boy became upset and jerked free. They argued. The man put both palms up in a gesture of pleading. The boy turned and glared at me once more, then charged toward me in strong, quick strides.
My gut seized at his fierce gaze and swift approach. A split decision of fight or flight. Flight. Definitely flight.
His gait quickened. I nearly dropped the keys uttering a couple of son-of-a’s, before I got the key into the ignition. The engine growled.
I slammed the lock down with my palm and hazarded a look. With only a pane of glass dividing us, his gaze bored through me. But behind his intense stare I thought I detected more. Confusion? Distress?
Surprisingly, an arrow of sympathy pierced me. My hand gripped the shifter – frozen, unable it seemed to pull it into reverse.
His eyes held me, almost . . . imploring?
I wavered, but finally tore my eyes from his and accidentally hit the gas before pulling the shifter into gear. The tires squealed as I ripped out of my parking spot. A slouched boy yanked his friend’s shirt back as I narrowly missed them. As I burned through the rows of parked cars, a few bystanders shouted something to the effect of, “Watch it, psycho!”
I looked for my pursuer in the rear-view mirror, and saw his figure, distorted by the dribbles of dried egg on my back window. He stood there, the only still figure in a swarm of activity, and watched me drive away.

Awaken explores the characteristics of true love and loyalty in times of fear, war

Monday, July 16th, 2018
Marcia was born and raised in Argentina during the military regime which ended with the loss of many young lives in the invasion of the Falkland Islands. Amidst the devastating effects of military government and war, reading and writing became a passion which expanded and transported her imagination with the possibility of a brighter future.
 
At the age of eighteen, she moved to the United States, where she studied English and started her own family. She soon discovered that the love she has for her husband and children would naturally unfold towards her European roots, leading her to become a genealogist and family historian. A decade of searching, compiling, and learning the stories of thousands of people has instilled in her a profound gratitude for the strong ties that can be achieved in families through personal sacrifice.
 
So it is that through fiction, Awaken explores and exposes the characteristics of true love and loyalty in times of fear, war, and finally, death. But perhaps the most captivating element in the story is the battle within the souls of the main characters as they search to know who they really are and how they are connected.

~ Facebook
Could there exist a love powerful enough to overcome the grave?
Hard times during the Great Depression force nineteen-year-old Florence to leave her service at the monastery and seek employment. Fate brings her to work for a wealthy recluse, General Alexander Sterling. Despite many daunting events and a meddling housekeeper with dark secrets of her own, Florence and the General find themselves falling deeply in love.What she doesn’t know is that General Sterling has left his native country escaping a painful past, one he yearns to forget. Destiny won’t allow it as he meets Florence, whose resemblance to his deceased wife is unbearable. Could Florence actually be the same woman who still owns his heart and haunts his dreams?

When their blossoming romance is shattered by an explosive truth, a mysterious stranger gives her an opportunity to go back in time to unlock the secret to her existence. Florence must strive to return to the present time to save their relationship from the imminent danger that awaits them.

 

Snippet:
“Florence, since the first day I saw you at Oak’s
Place, my life has completely changed. Everything that I believed and accepted
as true has been uprooted by your presence.” Alex’s countenance revealed
another layer of himself, a depth of feeling I hadn’t seen before. 
 
“There are
many things I don’t understand, things that hurt so deep that I almost
convinced myself I was insane.” Alex arose and extended his hand to bring me to
my feet. Holding both of my hands in his, his gaze found mine. 
 
“I wanted to
stay away from you, but I couldn’t. I didn’t want to hurt you, but I did. Today
when you said that you’d leave and never come back if I asked you to, I
realized that I could never ask that of you. Even though it would be better for
you, I’m much too selfish. I’d die if I did.”

a Native Texan, born and raised close to the heart of the state. Also
I’m a part-time working mother/housewife, as well as a Lupus
Warrior. 

 

Thanks
to the encouragement of friends and family, I found a passion in
writing paranormal romance books. Anything fantasy usually suits me
and my novels tend to be able to reach anyone in multiple genres. 

 

I
like to explore to new types of characters such as Sandmen and
Boogeymen for example. I really wanted to give them their own world.
Such as A Sandman’s Forbidden Love. “This book plagued my dreams
every night till I got it all out.”

 

Now
Angels are also a part of my obsession, I will sit on the computer
doing extensive research on both Sandmen and Angels trying to get my
facts straight.

 

Then,
I also create Art Journals that can be cross generational from
thirteen to sixty years younger, My goal with these types of books
are to reach people who need that extra feel good in their lives.

Elusive Highlander
The
Campbell Brothers Trilogy Book 1
by
Ju Ephraime
Genre:
Historical Romance, Time Travel
 
A
WARRIOR TOO ELUSIVE TO CAPTURE 

 

He
is a Scottish Laird who lives in a world of Druid magic and ancient
customs, hand fasted to the sister of his rival clan, MacDougall.
Alasdair thought he was doing the right thing trying to bring peace
to the region. But he is murdered on the eve of his wedding. Not
willing to accept his death, his mother, a Druid priestess, performs
a geas to keep him alive. But something went awry because, as the
last word of the geas was spoken, Alasdair is trapped in time where
he wanders the earth for centuries. The only one who can bring him
back home is his betrothed. He has given up on ever finding her until
she walks into his office in twentieth century Manhattan.

 

A
WOMAN TOO STRONG WILLED TO TAME
Coira Ainsley is a happy-go-lucky
young woman living in twenty-first century Manhattan. Her job as a
travel agent takes her all over. She loves the work she does and is
excellent at it. That is until she follows her client into his office
and finds herself in the fourteenth century at Inveraray Keep in the
Highlands of Scotland. At first, Coira thinks a prank is being played
on her until she sees the giant, wearing nothing but a kilt and a
studded leather strap across his massive chest approach her. Not one
given to swooning, Coira finds herself welcoming the darkness that
come over her as she loses consciousness, without learning that the
naked giant is her betrothed from another time… another place. Will
she give in and accept what has been pre-destined or will she fight
to get back to the life she knows and loves?

A
Knight’s Love
The
Campbell Brothers Trilogy Book 2
 
Fighting
alongside his two brothers, Garvin Campbell of Clan Campbell is
content to remain in the shadows. After all, he’s lived most of his
adult life as a Knight Templar, and that requires him being in the
shadows, not seen or heard. “Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed
Nomini tuo da gloriam; (Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto
thy Name, give glory).” That was the rule of the Templars until
they were forced to disband at the request of King Philip IV “the
Fair” of France.

 

Many
of the Order’s members in France were arrested and tortured. However,
Scotland did not get involved in the arrests and prosecution of the
Knights. There was no recognized king of the Scots, and with the
Bruce having already been excommunicated, the Roman church had little
say in Scottish politics, so Garvin returned to his clan to use his
skills in the fight against the English for Scottish
independence.

 

Having
been told all her life to avoid the Campbells, the last thing Lady
Helen is thinking about is falling in love with a Campbell, and a
Knight Templar at that. She is aware the Templar Knight has taken a
vow of abstinence, so when Garvin Campbell comes to her clan to
deliver the decree from Robert the Bruce, Helen is unprepared for the
connection she immediately feels for the knight. She dismisses it as
butterflies at meeting a knight, but fate has other plans for her and
Garvin, as he becomes her reason for living and he forgoes his
training of remaining in the shadows as he surrenders to love.

For the Claiming
The
Campbell Brothers Trilogy book 3
 
Tristan
(Tris) Campbell accepts the fact that his brother came back to them
from the land of the fae. He accepts that life in the Highlands with
his clan is fraught with strife and danger… that they will be
forever warring with opposing clans for Scottish independence. What
he doesn’t expect is that, like his brother Alasdair, he, too, will
travel through time to find his one true love, Lady Brianne
O’Connor.

 

Lady
Brianne O’Connor has vowed never to take a husband, and as she is
her father’s only child and heir, he does not dissuade her but
allows her to live as she pleases. After her new husband is murdered,
or so she thinks, she takes to unexplainable weeping, spending all
her days and nights in her bedchamber at Kilchurn Castle mourning
him. That is the only place in which she feels safe… the only room
where she can be with the love of her life. She is torn with grief by
his untimely death.

 

Tristan
comes upon a woman in a vision, and now he must find a way to connect
with her… a woman he is convinced he knows but, for the life of
him, can’t recall from where. Bent on finding the woman who stirs
his senses like no other, Tris will not rest until he can feel her in
his arms again….

 

Will
he succeed? Will Lady Brianne’s mourning finally be over?
