YA Paranormal Romance
I am prophesied.

My coming has been awaited for hundreds of years.

I am destined to end the tyranny of the Soul Reavers.

To do so I must die.

I have a life most eighteen year olds would kill for... No mom hanging around to embarrass me in front of my friends, telling me who I can and can't date; my own house, with no one to dictate what I should do and when. 

Ideal, right?

It would be if my mom had simply jetted off to Cabo for the summer. Instead, she is missing- the disappeared off the face of the planet kind of missing. Plus the only boy showing up at my house isn't trying to date me. He's trying to save my life, and he's none too happy about it. 

Immortal Reavers, ancient prophecies and soul toting sidekicks abound, my mission to find my mother descends into chaos, plunging me into an unknown world where even the simplest of goals--stay alive, stay safe-- seem impossible. Daniel and his friends stand between me and certain death, but can I allow him to help me? Can I allow him to risk my life in order to save it, and can I risk my heart to love him?

Don't miss the 2nd book also only $.99 on Kindle!!!

Women's Fiction
Twenty year old Lane Montgomery never imagined her usually boring summer in the boonies would require her to trade her toe shoes for hunting boots or her monotonous college textbooks for treasure map deciphering. Never would she have imagined after breaking her grandmother’s precious Native American painting, danger, a lost treasure of Cherokee Gold and a hostage situation would arise. Nor could she predict that the one man destined to protect her and her family was her childhood nemesis and former crush, Maddox Diaz.

Returning after three years in the Army, twenty-three year old Maddox Diaz is confronted with more than he bargained for when agreeing to help his childhood buddy and deepest regret, Lane. Suddenly he is thrust into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with armed and ruthless treasure seekers that results in car chases and gun battles all in the presence of the one girl who still manages to haunt his dreams and drive him wild with desire.

Ellie's Haven - Sharlene MacLaren


Ellie Booth was never the type to run away. But she'd witnessed her stepfather commit a heartless crime, and, knowing he'll stop at nothing to keep her quiet, she has no choice but to flee. Soon, she finds herself in Wabash,Indiana, scrambling for a cover identity to evade her stepfather. 

For lack of a better option, she answers an ad for a wife/housekeeper/nanny, praying that her lack of experience won't be obvious.

A widowed father with no domestic skills to speak of Gage Cooper is reaching the end of his rope. With four children between the ages of three and ten, he needs a reliable nanny, yet each one he's hired has thrown up her hands and deserted her post. When an attractive, spirited young woman applies for the "job," he knows he should pray about the matter, but his desperation for help propels him headlong into a marriage of convenience.

First thoughts after...
I would love to read the next book in the series.  

How Distracted Did I Get???
Ellie's Haven is a sweet romantic read with some suspense added in.  I love Ellie strong yet naive, sweet and spunky.  And Gage who doesn't love a handsome carpenter?!  With struggles in life, their relationship and with their kids Ellie and Gage swoop you up and swing you around and won't let go until the end of the story.  I've stayed up late 2 nights in a row to read this book even though I know the twins will wake at 5am.

Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP--a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans.
Her brother Liam is missing.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they've created between those who have and those who don't. He doesn't like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.

Zoe's carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She's in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.

It explores the clash between faith and science and how differences can separate us as enemies or ally us together. And in some cases, even in the midst of betrayal and personal crisis, there's room to fall in love.

Crime & Passion - Chantel Rhondeau

$3.99 on Kindle

A decorated police officer, more intent on justice than following the letter of the law, lands in trouble when a schoolteacher finds a dead body on the beach. 

Officer Donovan Andrews knows how to have a good time—ask any woman in town. But when it comes to men abusing their wives or children, Donovan takes it upon himself to make them regret it. 

Madeline Scott is unlucky in love. All she wants is a quiet place to heal, away from cheating, womanizing men. However, her life is far from peaceful once she stumbles across the body and witnesses someone fleeing the scene.

Terror spreads in Pleasant View when the small community hears a killer is on the loose. All evidence points to Donovan, and he realizes someone is trying to frame him. When troubling suspicions from his past surface, even fellow officers believe he’s guilty. Madeline might be the only person who can clear his name, but first he has to win her trust.

On their race to solve the tangled web of crime, drug deals, and human trafficking, dangers abound—both to their lives…and to their hearts.

Today Joya is sharing her Top Ten Best Things about Autumn!  LOVE Thanks Joya for including me in your tour and sharing with us!

Thanks very much for inviting me here today to share my newest release, REUNITED IN DANGER. Since this book takes place in Baltimore, during autumn, I thought I’d make a top ten list about the best things about autumn. So if you’re fanning yourself in the summer heat right now, maybe thinking about the cool breezes that happen while Keely and Logan fall in love through this book will help you sweat less and cool off a bit. Thanks for stopping by!

1. Fall air: There’s something about a crisp, cool, autumn breeze.

2. Watching squirrels preparing for winter: Wow. They really scramble and work hard, don’t they?

3. Fires: Perfect for snuggling in front of a roaring fireplace or curling up with a book.

4. Harvests: Pumpkins, fall squash, and gourds.

5. Colorful leaves on trees: Mother Nature paints gorgeous shades of red, yellow and orange.

6. Fall festivals: Games, crafts, and good food!

7. Back to School: Whether you’re a kid or a parent, it’s fun to shop for supplies and new beginnings are special, too.

8. Breaking out a soft sweater or sweatshirt for the first time. Ahhh, the feel of soft, long-sleeved shirts to take off that chill.

9. Fall Flowers: Mums, goldenrods, and chrysanthemums.

10. No more cutting the grass! (Okay, raking leaves might nullify this one, because there’s still a lot of outside work to do, but at least I like raking leaves.)

First thoughts after.....
WOW!  Awesome book!

How distracted did I get?

Reunited in Danger is a romantic thrill ride that keeps you on edge til the very end.  Keeley is strong and fights for those who can't fight for themselves including her father.  She's very realistic and likable.  Logan, can we say new book boyfriend?  LOL  He's fighting his past to be a person he believes "Keels" deserves.  I was so drawn into the book the boys got chicken nuggets, veggie straws and pears for dinner.  Yeah, I was a bit distracted.  Reunited in danger is definitely a MUST for Romantic Suspense fans.

I give Reunited in Danger.......
