The Volunteer

Genre: Psychological Thriller
Price: $0.00 Save $2.99
Subject to change back to full price at any time.

 

In the fall of 1999, psychologist Sophia Beckman is compelled by the court to give testimony on behalf of a death row inmate that results in his sentence being overturned. Haunted by secrets from her past, she avoids the media spotlight as much as possible, but soon, other prisoners’ families come seeking her assistance. One family in particular, the wife, children, and brother of Jarrett Capshaw, is especially insistent. Forty-one days ago Jarrett’s request to die was granted by the State of Texas, and he became a dead man walking, a man they call a volunteer.

Jarrett’s crimes were unusual, involving the theft of precious Mayan antiquities. Murder was never part of the plan, but murder is what happened. He pulled the trigger, and as little as he feels prepared for it, as much as he struggles with matters of the soul, he’s ready to die. It is the only way his family and the families of his victims will be free to move on. While Jarrett labors to find the words to say good-bye to those he has loved, Sophia finds herself drawn into a relationship with his wife and oldest son. It is Jarrett’s family she can’t resist and there will be a price to pay. But not even Sophia could have foreseen the outcome when the brutal truth is exposed, the unalloyed facts that, incredibly, will deliver Jarrett’s fate straight into her hands.

The Volunteer is a story about families, how they are made, and how in one single, horrifying instant, they can be broken. It is a story about mothers and the lies they tell to protect their children, to keep them from being hurt. But what happens when the truth comes out anyway and nothing and no one is spared? Sometimes the truth has the power to break your heart, and in Sophia’s case it will also endanger her freedom and threaten everything she has ever believed about her life.

** Nominated for “Best Contemporary Romance of 2010” at The Romance Reviews **

Crazy For You is a rags to riches tale set against the backdrop of the 80s, movie stars and rock-n-roll.

Roxanne Simon’s world is shattered when a tragic accident claims the life of her childhood sweetheart. Unable to cope with the loss when everything around her reminds her of Chuck, she and Candy (Chuck’s sister and Roxanne’s best friend) hit the road to start a new life.

In Florida, the “Simon sisters” meet Frank Garrett and Rich Hollander, co-founders of the struggling rock band Garrett-Hollander. In a cruel twist of fate, an unstable Roxanne makes some bad choices and ends up running away from a clueless Frank. Candy, knowing her friend is in deep trouble emotionally and mentally, follows suit and the sisters disappear just as the band is about to land their big break.

Years later, after the Simon sisters and Garrett-Hollander have both found fame and fortune, their lives intersect once again after Roxanne appears on a popular talk show and the world is left guessing: is rock star Frank Garrett the father of her four year old son?

Once Frank learns the true parentage of Roxanne’s son, he’s determined to make her pay. But is Frank prepared to see Roxanne pay the ultimate price in his quest for revenge?

Be careful what you wish for…you just might get it.

On this particular evening, however, her fears of a rat beneath the floorboards, combined with her natural absent-mindedness, result in her dishing up Stan not only his evening meal…but perhaps his just deserts!

A Familiar Face: Two elderly Cockney women, old friends, meet up in a London café shortly after one them, Dora, has been widowed. As Dora’s grief and anger grows increasingly fervent, her good friend Eydie begins to suspect there may be more to her angst than the loss of a loved one. When Dora calmly removes from her shopping bag a large glass jar containing a human head, discussions over its mysterious identity and how it came to be lodged in the cupboard under her stairs lead to some startling revelations….
