A dark, disturbing tale.

Has someone ever tried to trap you in a parasitic relationship?

Clair is an intelligent researcher. Before Adam knocks on her door she is in his trap. Adam is a parasite who selected her for his use. He addicts her to a cocktail of drugs to make her feel she is in love. Then he takes away her friends, her occupation and strips her of her identity. He turns her into his slave. All seems lost until Clair’s estranged daughter Diana comes for a visit. Diana is a powerhouse; a fighter who pits herself against Adam. Adam and his brothers are out to destroy the world and Diana is out to stop them.

On the surface, this is a story about monsters and horrors. At its core, it’s a story about relationships. An interplay of complex characters that questions that thing called love.

I was inspired to write this story after reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula. A dark story describing a plague of death. Written in 1897, the sensibilities of the times demanded a strict moral code. In Stoker’s novel the subject of sex is made conspicuous by its absence.

I chose a different presentation in this tale. Although there are no vampires, there is a great deal of biting and blood. The evil creatures are parasites, keeping their human hosts alive until they have fulfilled their purpose.

For adults only, this novel contains graphic sexual depictions.

The Third Best Thing by Maya Hughes

The Third Best Thing by Maya HughesEnter to win a signed paperback of THE THIRD BEST THING, a standalone secret admirer, neighbor next door romance!

Dear Letter Girl, I need to see you. When can we meet?

Her response never came. My secret pen pal with a dirty mind has ghosted me. I've roped Jules, my sweet as pie next door neighbor, to help me track her down.

There's only one problem--I'm falling for her. The tortoise shell glasses, out of this world curves and delicious treats are making the search for The Letter Girl even harder.

My notes were supposed to be a one time thing. A little too much wine and naughty thoughts on a winter's night. I never thought Berk would write back. I wanted to tell him it was me, but the fear of rejection kept my lips sealed.

Now he’s enlisted my help to track down The Letter Girl and our search has him hot on my, ahem, her trail.

She's the girl next door.

He's my secret pen pal.

Truth is on a collision course with their hearts and it’s only a matter of time before one of them gets wrecked...

For generations, the princes of Ilara have married the most beautiful maidens from the ocean village of Varenia. But though every girl longs to be chosen as the next princess, the cost of becoming royalty is higher than any of them could ever imagine…

Nor once dreamed of seeing the wondrous wealth and beauty of Ilara, the kingdom that’s ruled her village for as long as anyone can remember. But when a childhood accident left her with a permanent scar, it became clear that her identical twin sister, Zadie, would likely be chosen to marry the Crown Prince—while Nor remained behind, unable to ever set foot on land.

Then Zadie is gravely injured, and Nor is sent to Ilara in her place. To Nor’s dismay, her future husband, Prince Ceren, is as forbidding and cold as his home—a castle carved into a mountain and devoid of sunlight. And as she grows closer to Ceren’s brother, the charming Prince Talin, Nor uncovers startling truths about a failing royal bloodline, a murdered queen…and a plot to destroy the home she was once so eager to leave.

In order to save her people, Nor must learn to negotiate the treacherous protocols of a court where lies reign and obsession rules. But discovering her own formidable strength may be the one move that costs her everything: the crown, Varenia and Zadie.

Simon the Fiddler by Paulette Jiles

Simon the Fiddler by Paulette JilesThe critically acclaimed, bestselling author of News of the World and Enemy Women returns to Texas in this atmospheric story, set at the end of the Civil War, about an itinerant fiddle player, a ragtag band of musicians with whom he travels trying to make a living, and the charming young Irish lass who steals his heart.

In March 1865, the long and bitter War between the States is winding down. Till now, twenty-three-year-old Simon Boudlin has evaded military duty thanks to his slight stature, youthful appearance, and utter lack of compunction about bending the truth. But following a barroom brawl in Victoria, Texas, Simon finds himself conscripted, however belatedly, into the Confederate Army. Luckily his talent with a fiddle gets him a comparatively easy position in a regimental band.

Weeks later, on the eve of the Confederate surrender, Simon and his bandmates are called to play for officers and their families from both sides of the conflict. There the quick-thinking, audacious fiddler can’t help but notice the lovely Doris Mary Aherne, an indentured girl from Ireland, who is governess to a Union colonel’s daughter.

After the surrender, Simon and Doris go their separate ways. He will travel around Texas seeking fame and fortune as a musician. She must accompany the colonel’s family to finish her three years of service. But Simon cannot forget the fair Irish maiden, and vows that someday he will find her again.
