Love and Lies …

Sir Warren Leverton has many secrets.

1- He’s a writer,

2- a spy in service to the crown,

3- a man in love with a woman who was only supposed to have been an assignment.

Wooing Sopherina into a marriage so he could get closer to her father had been easy but keeping his heart at a distance turned out to be more difficult. Knowing he couldn’t live without her, he plans to tell her the truth.

But … before he could make his confessions, she died at the mission’s completion.

Or so he’d thought…

Sopherina North hadn’t died. Instead, something far worse had taken place and shame had left her with only one option: to run away and make a new life for herself.

She sets her sights on finding a real husband, and he’s the last suitor she’s interested in… or so she tries to convince herself. But as the dangers and secrets grow, only the truth will clear the way to the happily ever after they both want.

But can Warren convince Sopherina to forgive the past? Will love be enough?

What if someone harnessed the power of the internet to destroy the two-party system?

After a lifetime of political disillusionment, Mia Rhodes created an alternative to the two-party system: Ameritocracy. Part American Idol, part Iowa Caucus, her online political competition promises to find the most popular independent candidate in America and give them a genuine shot to win the presidency.

Anyone can run. The American people vote online. And the winner receives instant fame and a campaign warchest to battle the Democrats and Republicans in 2020.

But her project flounders until Mia catches the eye of eccentric tech billionaire Peter Colton. With Mia’s vision and Peter’s money, Ameritocracy moves rapidly from punchline to possibility. As the site grows, the stakes rise crisis by crisis, and Mia must learn that ending politics as we know it means saying goodbye to the Mia Rhodes she has always known.

“I am undone! By the time I got to the end of this story I was a blubbering mess—in a good way. This was such a beautiful story of finding sufficiency in God, and so unique.” -Fiction Aficionado

Ana Brassfield has her path to the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House all figured out until her first love, renowned German dancer Claus Gert, returns to Georgia to win her back. Despite a promising start towards her ballet career and pending marriage to landscape architect, Peter Engberg, Ana wonders if her dreams of dancing at the Met are as impossible as her previous romantic relationship with Claus.

Then, an on-stage kiss between Ana and Claus changes everything.

Convinced the kiss is more than a one-time mistake, Peter breaks off their engagement. With an old dog crippled by arthritis and dreams deferred but not left behind, Ana moves to Germany to be with Claus. But the ghost of his late wife, Ana’s own feelings for Peter, and the pressure of earning a spot in a large ballet company are a high price for a shot at success. Ana seems on the verge of having everything she ever dreamed of, but will it be enough?

Amazon Bestselling Author

“Mademoiselle, you are boring,” says Amadea’s employer and fires her from a teaching post in Paris: “No one wants to learn poetry here.”

In desperate pursuit of a job, Amadea travels to a small village in the Pyrenees, where she meets an aging aristocrat in need of a companion. It seems that Amadea has finally found someone who appreciates her for her kindness and cultivation. She begins to enjoy her new occupation and the first human warmth she has encountered in years.

Unfortunately, the village is not as peaceful as it appears and her path is soon crossed by a number of undesirables, including a charming, married lawyer and a scholarly alcoholic with a problem—and it isn’t his drinking. His son Hugo is trying to force him to sell the family land and has sent round a young thug to keep the pressure on. Hugo never expects, however, that his father will try to reform the fellow.

Raymond may be an alcoholic, but like Amadea, he has inner strengths in spite of his failings, and he believes in the power of words. Hugo isn’t happy and when Amadea inadvertently gets involved matters spin out of control. This is a lighthearted story about the value of saying no and also about the sometimes unexpected nature of sustaining relationships.

The media has a nickname for Marnie Baranuik, though she’d rather they didn’t; they call her the Great White Shark, a rare dual-talented forensic psychic. Twice-Touched by the Blue Sense—which gives her the ability to feel the emotions of others, and read impressions left behind on objects—Marnie also has a doctorate in preternatural biology and a working knowledge of the dark arts. She is considered without peer in the psychic community.

Then her first big FBI case ended with a bullet in one shoulder and a chip on the other, a queasy heart and a serial killer in the wind, leaving her a public flop and a private wreck. When the FBI’s preternatural crimes unit tracks her down at a remote mountain lodge for her insight on a local case, her quiet retirement is promptly besieged by a stab-happy starlet, a rampaging ghoul, and a vampire-hunting jackass in tight Wranglers. Marnie figures the only real mystery is which one will kill her first.

Too mean to die young, backed up by friends in cold places, and running with a mouth as demure as a cannon’s blast, Marnie Baranuik is about to discover that there’s no such thing as quitting time when you’re Touched.

This here is the starting line for the ALWAYS UNTIL NEVER series. And yours truly, Max Redford, is bringing the smokes and whiskey to this good ol’ Texas block party. Yeah, we gonna be good ol’ neighbors for a bit,so pull up a chair.

The folks and their stories that you’re gonna find in the Wolfe Brothers series aren’t your usual most upstanding, reputable, or even nice guys — or gals.

If you’re looking for sweet and wholesome romance with girls next door and savvy gents, well then . . . you’re in the wrong neighborhood.

But if y’all are into realistic folks who’ve endured hardship and keep on living by their own principles and their own family values, then you’re gonna fit right in ‘round this town. We got scars on our flesh and scars on our hearts. Our clothes ain’t designer and we always know the faces of the people at Walmart.

Some got their fake friends and their phony grins, but we’re as real as it gets and that’s alright with us.

We’ve been abused and we’ve abused —

We’ve fallen and we’ve knocked down —

We’ve swore to God and we’ve screamed at the Devil —

The sex is whiskey-laced. Lovers’ quarrels’ end in ecstasy and four-lettered words.

We’re the folks who love our dogs, our left-handed cigarettes, and tattoos.

All our men are alphas and all our women are GRITS.

We say yes sir, and we bow our heads, and salute our men in uniform — and if that ain’t you then we’ll still serve you up some good ol’ Texas hospitality.

Revenge is a dish best served with blood…

Samantha Church is back and the stakes are higher than ever.

In a sinister quest to settle the score, the drug dealers she thwarted are no longer motivated by money or politics, they want one thing and one thing only: Revenge…

Snow swirls on a cold February night when reporter Samantha Church and her publisher Wilson Cole Jr. are kidnapped. Days following the kidnapping, Sam wakes up in a hospital bed, dazed, bruised and confused. Why did they let her go? It makes no sense. It is only when the kidnappers make their next move does she realize why they let her go.

The kidnappers want to hurt Sam by harming those she loves most, her best friend and coworker, Wilson Cole Jr., and worse, her daughter, April. They taunt Sam, wanting to break her down mentally, physically and emotionally—pretty little April, watch her bleed, pretty little April, now we’ll have some fun. Say bye-bye, pretty little April will die before your eyes.

Revenge doesn’t come any sweeter. Or does it? Is all hope seemingly lost? Or is revenge a two-way street? Does Sam have a plan of her own for the kidnappers—one that will finally settle the score?
