Blurb:
After tragedy strikes 17-year-old Jo Moss’s life, she becomes plagued by panic attacks and anxiety. Not even sleep is safe for her. She thought losing her boyfriend in a freak accident at The Lights, a local overlook hangout where mysterious lights dance among the trees, was the worst thing she would have to endure. She never expected to become the one everyone blamed for his death.
Plagued by more nightmares of the lights, Jo is starting to think there is more to their mysterious appearance than meets the eye. Lucky for her, she discovers she’s not the only curious one in town. Cooper, the new guy in town, and his sister Jada have been seen asking strange questions around town. They also hold a secret that could help Jo figure out what’s truly going on in her small town.
The more they uncover about her town, it’s history, and some of its current residents, people whom Jo has known her whole life, the more she begins to think there are those who would rather keep the evil lurking around their town a secret, even if it means more will die.
Whenever she’s not reading or writing, Brandy is spending time with her family and friends, throwing around crazy ideas, teaching, and singing like a rock star at a concert for no one else but herself. She loves plants, but unfortunately is a killer of anything that requires water but can’t voice (scream) their needs.

Blurb:  Once upon a time, a beautiful queen was cursed by a dark faery. That curse, inherited by twin princesses, Aura and Luna, binds their lives in the strangest of ways. At an early age, the girls were more than sisters. They were the strongest of allies until a combination of jealousy, anger and dark magic tore their relationship to shreds.
Aura took everything from Luna: her home, her family, and her love by murdering the prince who’d chosen her instead of Aura.
Luna wants revenge, but she’s running out of time. She must sever the magical bond tying her life to Aura’s before their eighteenth birthday or be bound to her forever. In desperation, she seeks help from a dark fae prince, but the price is steep – a piece of her soul.
Fate is a real witch. Luna was willing to give up anything to stop her sister, until Prince Phillip of Grithim, the brother of the only man she’s ever loved, falls into her life. Neither of them can fight their attraction, despite their guilt.
With Aura hell-bent on destroying everything she holds dear, Luna must decide whether she wants revenge or Phillip. She can’t have both, and in the end, this may be a battle both sisters lose.
**Savage Beauty is a fairy tale retelling of Sleeping Beauty... with fae witches. :)

The Day of the Orphan
Dr Nat Tanoh

Genre: Fiction, General Fiction

Publisher: Acorn

Publication Date: May 25 2018

ISBN: 9781912145560

Book Description:

Like many eighteen-year-old boys, Saga’s prime concerns are: listening to music his mum calls “hop-hip”, learning about girls from his suave best mate Ibrahim, and making sure his considerable tummy is well-fed. In his affluent, liberal and relatively protected suburb life is pretty good, especially when his mum’s special peanut soup is on the table.

However, in Africa, childhoods can be snatched in an instant, especially when you live in a dictatorship. When his friends and family are dragged into the conflict, he is given no choice. Chubby Saga becomes an unlikely revolutionary, but these are very dangerous times. Their violent President Brewman has built their country on fear and even he, himself, is terrified. Spies, traps and double-dealings lie everywhere. Can one happy-go-lucky schoolboy really stand up to a murderous regime? How long can he stay one step ahead of the Zombie soldiers that will do anything to stop him?

This thought-provoking coming of age story touches on many of Africa’s biggest problems today.

Excerpt:

After the quasi-formal welcome, the headmaster and form master hastily stood aside, moving backwards towards the blackboard so the Deputy Minister could take over by posing his questions directly to the students as part of his verification process. The bodyguards also placed themselves at the two front corners of the classroom behind the Minister, and commenced an inexplicable process of touching their earpieces with equally inexplicable regularity.
Mr Com, who now had the floor, asked if anyone would volunteer to go first, and a still very annoyed Saga impulsively raised his hand before any of the others could. The New Patriotism issue was indeed a very sore point with Saga. He was still plagued with guilt that he had not been present to defend his bosom friend, Ibrahim, when he was beaten up badly by New Patriotism fanatics who happened to be students in their own school. Subconsciously, it was as though he thus felt the urge to be the one to face any New Patriotism ‘onslaught’ from officialdom within their school. As to how he would deflect such an onslaught, he had absolutely no idea. It was a subconsciously inspired impulsiveness so he simply had to wing it.
‘Well, well – I see we have an eager beaver in our midst,’ he smiled at Saga, who did not return the smile. The headmaster, and the form master, and all the five men and one woman who made up the Minister’s entourage, however, giggled rather obsequiously at this sally. They truly understood the meaning of grovelling to those on high. The Deputy Minister turned and rewarded them all with an openly condescending smile.
‘Okay mister serious young man, let’s start. So, tell me, who is your mother under our New Patriotism?’ Mr Com boomed out his question.
Saga knew the answer he was to give and did so correctly. ‘My mother is the Great South Party of President Brewman!’
Mr Com was pleased. ‘Not bad, not bad,’ he said, and nodded happily towards the headmaster, who gave an equally satisfied beam in response.
‘And who is your father?’ Mr Com boomed yet again.
Saga again answered correctly. ‘My father is the Great Leader of our nation, His Supreme Excellency and President-For-Life-Until-Further-Notice Field Marshal Brewman.’
Both Messrs Com and Money now beamed in unison. The entourage and form master were not far behind in this beaming effort.
‘Well done my boy, well done.’ Mr Com smiled a vastly complacent smile at Saga.
‘Tell me, my bright, young friend – so what would you like to be when you grow up?’
This was far from being a question about future careers such as wanting to be a doctor or lawyer or pilot. Saga knew he should answer something along the lines of wanting to grow up to be a dedicated follower of the President or the Party. However, Saga inhaled and dropped his bombshell. ‘I would like to be an ORPHAN when I grow up,’ he said with utmost seriousness.

Excerpt:

Her husband, Terrance, came home that night and she had slid into bed with him, still thinking of Thomas.
She tried to hide it – how much she was distracted. She listened to Terrance talk – as he did every night – about his job as an attorney and how it was always stressful but lucrative to represent an artiste or a congressman. Apparently, he had been to court twice in one day and each meeting with the judge had taken almost every ounce of breath he could muster. At the end, he had won but he just had to complain about everything he had gone through to make that happen.
There was a time that she wanted to love how he spoke to her about his job every night. She had somehow learnt to crave the way his fingers traced the edges of her skin while he spoke. She got used to the smell of his cologne too and sometimes thrilled herself by wearing his shirt. But all these happened a long time ago – a very long time ago.
Now, while he finally stopped talking and began to tickle her thighs with his fingers, she only closed her eyes and wanted him done with her as soon as possible. He caressed her left thigh but she felt no arousal for him. She could only picture Thomas’ smile in her head. She could remember his strong arms and the way his tongue passionately tasted and suckled her nipples.
Terrance had slid down the bed to pull up her nightgown and rid her off her panty. He kissed the soft flesh between her thighs and dug his tongue into her hole. She appreciated his effort. She widened her thighs to give him more room and silently thanked him for reawakening her memories of Thomas. She imagined her husband to be her high school lover. She imagined him to be the young man that had torn her thighs apart with lust and had made her heart warm with love.
She wanted that endless orgasm that Thomas had given her as her high school sweetheart. So, she held Terrance’s head and pulled him up with a moan. She welcomed him into her warm embrace too, staring into his eyes and seeing the man in her thoughts.
“Oh My!” She whispered as soon as Terrance found her pleasure hole and rammed his cock deep into it.
He wasn’t even listening to her. He was fucking her hard now, lost in between his own pleasure. She urged him on, wanting the memory of Thomas to never cease. She could remember the three times he had held her pinned to the wall of his room and rammed into her from behind. She had felt loved. She had felt as if he meant the entire world to her.
Countless orgasm had been what he gave to her.
And she was having one now, thinking about him! She dug her fingers into her husband’s shoulders now as her climax came. Her body shook violently. Terrance was muttering inaudible words too while all she could mutter was the word, Thomas.

She was going nuts over a man that probably didn’t know that she existed anymore and she knew it.

Blurb: How did a simple hello turn into something so complicated?
Love is about to leave one lawman thunderstruck in this sweet historical romance!
Cultured and full of grace, Delilah Robbins agrees to accompany her meteorologist father to his new post in Baker City, Oregon. Expecting a primitive place, she’s delighted to discover an up-and-coming town with plenty of surprises as well as a place she can turn into a sanctuary for her beloved birds. As she settles into life in the western town, she unwittingly creates a riff between two deputies when they both fall for her charms.
Deputy Dugan Durfey only meant to extend a friendly welcome to a newcomer. But the moment he set eyes on the meteorologist’s delightful daughter, Dugan’s heart was no longer his own. Since his best friend and fellow deputy suffered the same fate, Dugan struggles to do what’s right. He’ll fight jealousy, outlaws, and a wily raccoon to keep Delilah safe, but the greater battle lies in overcoming his fears to profess his love.
Filled with humor, adventure, and plenty of sweet romance, Lightning and Lawmen highlights the history of the era and blends it with the timeless feelings of discovering true love.

Afternoon sunshine illuminating the clear blue sky made her tip back her head to soak up the glorious rays spilling through a missing section of the porch roof. The tang of approaching spring mingled with the yeasty aroma of baking bread and the mouth-watering smell of roasting meat in the air. A slight breeze, redolent with the mixture of scents, caressed the tendrils of her hair that had escaped the confines of the once-tidy chignon she’d hastily fashioned early that morning.
At least the pleasant weather was one thing working in Baker City’s favor. In spite of the house’s disorderly status, she would greatly enjoy spring days in the area if today was any indication of what the future held. She pushed the cape from her shoulders, closed her eyes, and relaxed against the chair, enjoying the peaceful moments before her father returned.
“Maybe this place won’t be all bad,” she whispered, allowing her grip on her father’s bag to loosen.
“Baker City tends to grow on most folks, if you give it a chance,” a deep voice said, startling her from her musings.
Her eyes snapped open in surprise. Pride straightened her spine as her glance settled on a man standing a few yards away on the winter-browned grass on the other side of the porch railing.
Sunlight glinted off a shiny silver badge pinned to the front of a long duster. She studied the black western-style hat on his head, similar to those she’d seen cowboys sporting on the train. The lawman wore a tan flannel shirt topped with a dark vest and a neckerchief the color of crocuses. Dark blue denims encased muscled legs while dust covered the toes of his worn boots.
Slowly, her gaze glided from his boots back up to his face. A square jaw covered in a rakish growth of stubble, firm lips, and a straight nose proved to be a handsome combination. But it wasn't.
