“This was a stunning tale of love, tragedy and second chances.” -Page Turners Book Blog

NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

I knew falling in love with him was bad for us both, but I did it anyway.

For a brief moment, we had it all. Even though he was leaving to join the Marines and I had four years of college ahead of me, he was everything I ever wanted and didn’t think I deserved.

But real life has a way of dashing dreams—and that happy future we envisioned together? It disappeared at the hands of a monster.

Ten years have passed and I’m not the same naïve girl that believed in happily-ever-afters. When unforseen events draw me back to our hometown and I find myself caring for my two teenage brothers, the last thing on my mind should be reconnecting with the hottie-turned-hero who I loved at seventeen.

As the past begins to repeat itself and old threats resurface, I’ll have to trust him with the secrets that tore us apart if I want a second chance at his heart.

“The plot is deftly paced, as past intrudes on present, like a photograph emerging in developing fluid.” -San Francisco Book Review

#1 Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

The last person seventeen-year-old Eleanor Livingston wants to see on the elevator—let alone get stuck with—is her ex-boyfriend Travis, the guy she’s been avoiding for five months.

Plagued with the belief that when she speaks the truth, bad things happen, Elly hasn’t told Trav anything. Not why she broke up with him and cut off all contact. Not what happened the day her father returned from his deployment to Afghanistan. And certainly not that she misses him and still thinks about him everyday.

But with nowhere to hide and Travis so close it hurts, Elly’s worried she won’t be able to contain her secrets for long. She’s terrified of finally revealing the truth, because she can’t bear to watch a tragedy befall the boy she still loves.

TUBBY’S CURE FOR BOREDOM: RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet is bored. He wants to bill enough hours to pay his alimony and keep his daughter in college, with enough left over for an occasional drink and a good meal, but he longs for something different and exciting.

Sure, researching licensing law for the new casino will keep trout meunière on the table, but what could be more tedious? (Unless, of course, the client turns out to be connected.) Meanwhile, there’s the estate of an old friend who controls some dock leases on the wharf. And he agrees to help his daughter’s environmental group stop illegal dumping in the river.

Ho-hum, thinks our hero. But suddenly all three cases begin to converge in an entirely ominous way–the toxic dumping, the dock leases, and the too-good-to-be-true casino job. How is that possible? Could it be Tubby’s been set up as the fall guy in a Mob effort to expand its gambling empire?

NOW it’s exciting — he’s running for his life!

Virginia Bellamy is an ambitious, well-to-do socialite who aspires to marry into Boston’s most elite social circles. But when she fails to attract a proposal that meets her high standards, she agrees to become the mail order bride to a wealthy Cheyenne businessman. He promises her a life of luxury and status. It appeals to her to be one of the most important families in the city – even if that city is Cheyenne.

But in the weeks before Virginia’s arrival, Lewis is besieged with the worst onslaught of bad fortune; Virginia arrives to find herself betrothed to a pauper.

It is a catastrophe of unimaginable magnitude on both sides. What can Lewis do to make amends for the unforgivable situation he has put Virginia in? Is the social hierarchy in Cheyenne as rigid and unforgiving as that of Boston? And most importantly, will it ever be possible for this determined social climber to love a man who has nothing to offer but his heart?

“Fascinating read – written during or shortly after the events as opposed to a fictional accounting decades later.” -Art Z.

In 1940, an ordinary American from a Midwest farm came to a country at war, joined its fighting forces, mingled with its fighting men, and fought and fell and fought again.

Donahue felt it his duty as a believer in a civilized way of life to throw his lot in with Britain, and felt it a privilege to be able to serve alongside her forces.

A civilian pilot, upon hearing that the R.A.F. was hiring Americans for non-combatant jobs Donahue made his way to Canada, where he was promptly hired.

Shipped to Britain, Donahue was commissioned as a Pilot Officer and began the transition to a war-time fighter pilot as the skies above Britain transformed into a battlefield.

Filled with technical insights and descriptions of what his senses experienced, Donahue transports the reader into his heavy fur-lined flying boots.

As an American abroad Donahue’s memoir also acts as window to a bygone age, shining a light onto life in England during the Blitz from a visitor’s point of view.

“Things Like That Never Happen Here.”

The townsfolk of Black Dog wrapped themselves in that sentiment like a security blanket. Being part of the tight-knit, small town shielded them from the horror that plagued the evening news.

And then something happened. It happened fast.

Two fishermen became ill after a day on Black Dog Lake. The mysterious virus that had an almost supernatural way of evolving began to spread. People got sick. People got violent. And then they died.

But the hunger that ravaged their bodies lived on.

The infected were considered the lucky ones. The cloudy film covering their eyes blinded them from the death of mankind. The survivors witnessed everything—the true value of life and the evil that lurked deep in the human soul. Each day the world darkened.

On the bright side, it would all be over in five days.
