“These stories will stay with you long after you have finished them. I highly recommend reading this collection. It will make you ponder why we don’t live a more open hearted life!” -Debi

NY Times, USA Today, Amazon Bestselling and Multi Award-Winning Authors

Do you believe in destiny? Love and destiny walk hand in hand in this touching, heartwarming trio of stories.

MEMORY HOUSE

Memory House is a place where friendship turns to love, love lasts forever, and memories outlive their owner. Ophelia Browne knows this because she’s been granted the unique gift of finding and caring for those forgotten memories. But now she’s nearing ninety, and needs to find a successor – soon.

When broken-hearted Annie Cross shows up on the doorstep of The Memory House Bed and Breakfast, Ophelia knows she is the one. The two women forge a bond of friendship as they sip magical dandelion tea and share stories. When Annie starts to uncover new memories Ophelia is delighted, but then a thread of violence begins to unravel and she fears things have gone too far.

LADY’S MAN

Instinct brought Annie Franklin to Folly Beach, South Carolina to say goodbye to her grandmother. As a parting gift to her beloved gram, she also decides it’s time to live a freer, more open-hearted life.

Thanks to one very intuitive dog and a perfect stranger, she discovers that ‘letting go’ has as much to do with embracing the present as it does with shedding the past. New York Times best-selling author Tanya Anne Crosby makes her contemporary fiction debut with a novella about life and love in the Lowcountry…

THE COLOR OF DESTINY

Eighteen years ago a teenage pregnancy changed Kate Worthington’s life forever. Faced with many difficult decisions, she chose to follow her heart and embrace an uncertain future with the father of her baby and her devoted first love.

At the same time, in another part of the world, sixteen-year-old Ryan Hamilton makes his own share of mistakes, but learns important lessons along the way. Twenty years later, Kate’s and Ryan’s paths cross in a way they could never expect, which makes them question the possibility of destiny. Even when all seems hopeless, could it be that everything happens for a reason, and we end up exactly where we are meant to be?

“This riveting historical debut is chock-full of details about Victorian England, spun into a masterful tale of romance, railroads, and mystery. Propelled by an engaging heroine and a deftly plotted conspiracy, it’s a great read!” -Stefanie Pintoff, Edgar Award–winning author

Following a humiliating fourth Season in London, Lady Elizabeth Fraser is on her way back to her ancestral country estate when her train careens off the rails and bursts into flames. Though she is injured, she manages to drag herself and her unconscious mother out of the wreckage, and amid the chaos that ensues, a brilliant young railway surgeon saves her mother’s life. Elizabeth feels an immediate connection with Paul Wilcox—though society would never deem a medical man eligible for the daughter of an earl.

After Paul reveals that the train wreck was no accident, and the inspector who tried to prevent it dies under mysterious circumstances, Elizabeth undertakes a dangerous investigation of her own that leads back to her family’s buried secrets. Not only are her dowry and her reputation at stake; Paul’s very life hangs in the balance when he is arrested for manslaughter. Now Elizabeth must risk everything for the man who has found a place in her heart. As the trial draws near, and Parliament prepares for a vote that will change the course of the nation, she uncovers a conspiracy that has been years in the making. But time is running out to see justice done.

“Michael M. Hughes’s highly intelligent debut novel, Blackwater Lights, weaves a stunning tale of intrigue, ritual, and dark magic. It’s brilliantly paced and beautifully written, and once the journey has begun, it’s impossible to put down” -Lisa Mannetti, Bram Stoker award–winning author

When Ray Simon receives a desperate call from his childhood friend Kevin, begging him to come visit, Ray can’t say no. Kevin promises to clue him in on shocking discoveries he has made about weird, half-forgotten events in their past—events associated with a summer camp near Kevin’s home in the small town of Blackwater, West Virginia.

But when Ray arrives, Kevin is nowhere to be found. So Ray does some investigating of his own, only to find that no records exist of the camp. Yet he is not alone in looking for information. There are Lily, a beautiful redhead with uncanny seductive powers; Crawford, a wealthy collector of art and people; and Micah, the mysterious leader of the Church of the Open Door. All of them are seeking information about the rumored camp. And they are all interested—very interested—in Ray.

Then a midnight encounter with strange floating lights sparks a return of old memories—vivid but fractured images that haunt Ray’s waking hours with intimations of terror and cruelty. Something dreadful happened at that camp long ago. Something was awakened there. Now, with the help of his new friend Ellen, a waitress at the local diner, Ray must navigate a path through madness and murder—a path that leads inexorably to an all-but-forgotten night in his childhood . . . and to a future of unimaginable horror.

“Five emotionally charged stars to A Handful of Fire.” – Deb, Goodreads

Amazon Bestselling Author

A taboo relationship…steamy passion…and secrets that can ruin everything.

“Nothing short of fantastic, without a doubt the best political satire I have ever read.” -ocalaron

Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Two candidates no one wants to vote for.

An election the students want to forget about.

A story everyone can identify with.

United Exceptionalism is known far and wide as being the greatest prep school. In recent years, however, it has begun to suffer, and its problems fall on the shoulders of the senior class president. The school desperately needs someone who will offer solutions. Instead, the students find themselves having to choose between two kids who are widely disliked and constantly surrounded in scandal. It will be a year that no one at United Exceptionalism will ever forget.

The Faulty Process of Electing a Senior Class President is satire based on the recent Presidential election. It combines the political allegory of Orwell with the dark humor of Vonnegut. It is not a partisan book against any one candidate or political party. Rather, it is a call to change a system that keeps offering bad choices. It is also a reminder that no matter how old you are you should expect better from your leaders.

“Colorful characters, dark secrets, and heart make Maggie King’s latest edgy cozy a standout. You’ll be clamoring to join Hazel Rose’s book group.” – Dianne Emley, L.A. Times bestselling author

When high-powered executive Roxanne Howard dies in a pool of blood outside the Moonshine Inn, Richmond, Virginia’s premier redneck bar, the victim’s sister enlists Hazel Rose to ferret out the killer. At first Hazel balks—she’s a romance writer, not a detective. But Brad Jones, Rox’s husband, is the prime suspect. He’s also Hazel’s cousin, and Hazel believes in doing anything to help family. Never mind that Brad won’t give her the time of day—he’s still family.

Hazel recruits her book group members to help with the investigation. It’s not long before they discover any number of people who feel that a world without Rox Howard is just fine with them: Brad’s son believes that Rox and Brad were behind his mother’s death; Rox’s former young lover holds Rox responsible for a tragedy in his family; and one of Rox’s employees filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against her. The killer could be an angry regular from the Moonshine Inn—or just about anyone who ever crossed paths with the willful and manipulative Rox.

When a second murder ups the ante Hazel must find out who is behind the killings. And fast. Or she may be victim #3.

“I highly recommend this beautiful memoir by this highly accomplished English gentleman and learning about his equally accomplished children, his sweet wife who stood by him for so many years, and his unshakable faith in God. Five stars!” -Mary R.

John Fear was born into a religious sect known as the Exclusive Brethren. This sheltered him from the outside world as he grew up, but could not hide him from its influences. A struggle began in his mind that led him to leave the Brethren, along with his young family.

This is a story that was always meant to be told. During his later life John Fear had prepared a lot of the book, along with notes for chapters that he knew would not be completed. It is only now, over twenty years later, that the book is finally being published. It contains original content written by John, along with diary notes, letters and magazine articles. The final chapters are written by his second eldest son, Alastair. The memoir is introduced and edited by his eldest son, Robert, as a tribute to his father’s amazing life.

For two thousand years, the name of Pontius Pilate has been remembered with vile contempt. Cursed by countless generations for his one fateful decision, this otherwise obscure Roman bureaucrat has been forever damned in the eyes of history. Now, however, a subway construction project under the streets of modern Rome has inadvertently uncovered the archeological find of the millennium. Inside a long forgotten chamber beneath the ruins of Nero’s Golden House, a confidential report to Emperor Tiberius has been discovered that could turn all of history on its head.

In this fast-paced, action-packed, historical thriller, archeologist Dr. Thomas Lampton and his girlfriend, Victoria Alberghetti, will have their relationship tested, and their comfortable world turned upside down as a result of this astonishing find. After translating the ancient scrolls, Thomas uncovers the story — behind the story — of the most famous trial in history. A lifelong skeptic, reading the eyewitness account of the trial, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, from Pontius Pilate’s perspective, throws everything he thought he once knew into chaos. It also puts he and Victoria’s lives in jeopardy.

Men will kill to acquire these priceless documents. Powerful forces will stop at nothing to keep their explosive secrets hidden. Because now, after centuries of silence, Pontius Pilate will finally have his say. His answer to the most important question ever asked, what is truth, will shake the world to its very foundations.

The first three books of the Psychic Visions and Ghosts series.

Welcome to a place with a dark history, an island in the Celtic Sea where not everything is as it seems. Welcome to Lansin Island.

Popular with Pagans for its larger-than-life celebrations of the seasonal Sabbats, Lansin Island is rife with witchy history. But with Halloween just around the corner, it’s harder than ever to tell fact from fiction.

Nicolas Crystan, an ordinary young guy trying to find his way in the world, has lived on the island his whole life. Apart from his mother’s unexplained disappearance, he’s never witnessed anything like the strange stories he’s grown up hearing about—until the day he’s struck by a disturbing vision of a woman’s death.

When Nick uses the premonition to save Juliet Maystone from a grisly fate, their lives become inextricably linked—and forever altered. Before long, a cryptic message about Nick’s missing mother plunges Nick and Juliet into a world of ghosts, mediums, immortals … and murder.

As the two learn more about what brought them together, they discover they’re part of something much larger than themselves—and more dangerous than any wicked act in a Lansin Island legend.

It’s one thing to alter the fate of a single person, but what can they do when the fate of the whole world—and even worlds beyond—may rest in their hands?
