The Fated Series #giveaway #MFRWHooks

 

I am giving away one full copy of THE FATED SERIES!

Small town romantic suspense with a paranormal flavor, The Fated Series follows the residents of Trappers’ Cove, Minnesota over three decades and two generations. Ordinary people cast into extraordinary circumstances finding love while surviving both the evils of man and dangers of nature.

FATED SOULS

Maggie O’Connell went to Trappers’ Cove in search of a story. Aidan Gael went there to protect a secret. Together they found a love that will entwine their fates for eternity; but will also inspire an evil that will threaten everyone they cherish.

FATED HEARTS

Henley Elliott lives in self-induced exile, running from one place to the next. Sheriff Carter McAlister can’t run from his nightmares. Fate brings these scarred hearts together but danger threatens to tear them apart.

FATED DESIRES

Former shortstop, Gabriel Foxx, isn’t looking for anything but a casual, friendly fling. Prickly divorcee Jenna Gavin isn’t even looking for that. But the more she tries to keep Gabe at arm's length, the more determined he is to break down her walls. When friendship grows complicated and mutual desire just isn't enough, will love be worth the risk?

FATED ALWAYS

A wild child who grew into a woman dedicated to protecting the wild, Tala Gael must choose between a man she doesn’t love and a man whose love she’s afraid to lose. Sawyer Gavin knows he’s fated to love Tala forever and is done waiting for their always to begin. Neither would know, until it’s too late, the evil their love would nurture.

 The Romance Reviews

THREE (3) E-BOOK COPIES OF FATED ALWAYS

Friendship. Secrets. Murder.

When her best friend, Sawyer Gavin, roars into town on his motorcycle, Tala Gael thinks life couldn’t get any better. What she couldn’t have anticipated was his appearance heralding a time of change in her quiet, comfortable existence.

With her life turned upside down, Tala resists Sawyer’s advances, clinging to the familiar. Tragedy changes her mind, but as she takes the leap of faith into Sawyer’s arms, they find themselves suspects in a murder investigation. And Tala learns she’s not the only person in Trappers’ Cove keeping an impossible secret.

Jealousy is when you worry someone will take what you have; envy is coveting what someone else has; and both can lead to murder.

Click here to ENTER

That inspiration shines through on the page, as characters interact with a lived-in chemistry that feels like they've been living long before you flipped the page, and will continue to do so long after...The natural dialogue sizzles and slides, invoking the feeling of watching a conversation between two real people rather than reading a novel. - Northeast Times

Excerpt

“Do you feel that?” he asked.

“Of course I do, Sawyer. It’s pressing into my hip.”

He laughed, he blushed, and Tala tried with all her being not to be seduced. 

“Not that. Well, not just that.” He tucked his finger under her chin and raised her face until their mouths aligned.

Tala held her breath. Did he mean to kiss her? Why aren’t I backing away?

“Can’t you feel how right this is? I can feel you in every bit of me, Tee. It’s an awareness that is always with me, like the sensation of being watched but better. It’s the knowledge that we belong together. That we fit. Be honest—don’t you feel it too?”

She twisted away, but he held on. He keeps pushing me.

“What if I said I did? Then what? When it falls apart, we’ve lost more than a lover. We’ve each lost our best friend.” She touched his cheek. “I couldn’t live with that. You’re too important. Let it go.”

“Who says it’ll fall apart? Why would it? Who is your mom’s best friend? Your dad’s?” He did not wait for an answer. “Why can’t we have both too?”

She didn’t have an answer. She was too proud to admit she was too afraid to risk it. She closed her eyes against the weight of his stare and the truth reflected in it. She wouldn’t give him what he wanted. She loved him too much.

Fated Always #NewRelease #RomanticSuspense #99cents #MFRWHooks


A blizzard struck the northeast – hard - in the winter of 1996. I and one of my brothers took my 2-year-old daughter and the family dog (really my dad’s dog) into the backyard to play in the snow. The entire world was white and cold buried under three feet of fresh powder. With nothing in sight to lift his leg against - you guessed it - Champ peed on my leg. And I yelled at him “I’m not your friend anymore”.

More than a decade later, Champ passed away and in his memory, I started writing a short story about a journalist who falls in love with a werewolf and shouts “I’m not your friend anymore” when the wolf pees on her leg. Only the short story kept growing and growing.

And now 24 years after my dad’s dog peed on me, the fourth book in a series that was never meant to be more than one short story has been released.

One may think I’d have dedicated FATED ALWAYS in Champ’s memory. But I did not. This book isn’t just romantic suspense with a paranormal element, it is in many ways about friendship, those binds that tie people to us, and the family we make from those connections. I struggled last year, personally, emotionally, and my family was there for me every step of the way.

As were my friends.

So to them, my friends, the ones who held me up when I could no longer stand on my own and have never peed on me, FATED ALWAYS is for them.

💕BEFORE THE FALL #MFRWHooks


💕BEFORE THE FALL
Covert Passions Book 3 🔫
by….me 

Someone has been selling secrets to the enemy. Can Paige find the traitor before he finds her?

Suspended from field duty and relying on Eoin Fitzpatrick, her lover and former MI-6 officer, CIA covert agent Paige Fleming engage in a dangerous game of cat and mouse as she hunts for a traitor within the United States intelligence community.

For Paige, the stakes are personal. She’s begun to doubt herself, her ideals, her identity following multiple tragedies, and missions gone awry. Convinced that a positive outcome will redeem her, Paige is determined to bring those responsible to justice. And equally determined to avoid the intimacy Eoin demands. 

Vulnerable and volatile, the sexy spy must beat the clock and the bad guys in an off-the-books mission that holds countless lives in the balance.

Including her own. 

(sensuality: Erotic)


Available exclusively at Amazon & FREE thru 31-July-2020

Enjoy the following excerpt from Before the Fall:


“Whiskey is the devil.” She mumbled into her pillow, her tongue sticking to the roof of her mouth. She could smell alcohol-laced sweat and wished the moisture would stay put. She was already dehydrated.

“Spoken like a true Irishwoman.”

Acting on instinct and training, Paige sat, the sheet pooling around her waist. One of her many guns trained on the handsome, auburn-haired man across the room from her. Startling blue eyes stared at her and a generous mouth mocked her—much as they had the first time they’d met.

“Mind lowering that, a ghrá? I’m still recovering from the last time you shot me.”

“Eoin?” Paige tossed the gun to the mattress. “What are you doing here?”

“Daniels didn’t tell you?  I’m providing field support.”

She looked at him with one eye, the other squeezed shut in a useless gesture to lessen the sun’s impact. The last time they worked together she shot him. She had believed they’d never see each other again. His gaze assessed. She pulled the sheet over herself. The unexpected modesty surprised her. His expression indicated it surprised him too.

“There is water and a shot of whiskey on your nightstand, along with a few tablets of ibuprofen I pilfered from your medicine cabinet.” He stood, his body stiff, wincing as he leaned on a cane. In the time it took for him to cross to her, his movements became more fluid. He leaned over her. “I’ll meet you downstairs. But first . . .”

Eoin skimmed his fingers along the framework of her face until he cupped her chin. His thumb brushed her bottom lip. His mouth cruised over hers in a sweet caress. “You matter.”

Paige fell back onto the bed as the door closed behind him. She’d lost count of the moments Eoin had been present in her thoughts in the three weeks since she’d left Dublin. They’d spoken once while she’d been in Prague. The conversation had ended badly. She had refused to call or text him since returning to the states. And he hadn’t, to her knowledge, attempted to contact her either. Now he was here and providing logistical support on an internal investigation.

Enjoy the following excerpt from Fated Always: 

She flashed a bright smile as she slid into the booth. “Sorry. I got held up.”

“Hey, beautiful.” He laid his phone down and took her fingers in his. The lines around his whiskey brown eyes creased when he smiled. “I don’t have much time. I’ve another appointment with Penny and her mother. I ordered you the BLT.”

“What about this time?”

“She wants to change the flowers. Again. From red roses to pink Asiatic lilies. Of course, the roses were already ordered.”

“Mix the roses with the lilies,” Tala suggested.

“Genius.” He lifted her hand to his lips and brushed a sweet kiss over her knuckles. “Why didn’t I think of that?”

A shaft of light shone through the window, striking her eye, and she turned toward it, squinting. Sunlight caught more chrome as the throaty growl of the motorcycle echoed down Main Street. A warm glow spread through her. Tala pulled her fingers free and leaned forward. She knew that sound, as she knew the beat of her own heart.

“Tala?”

She waved an absent hand in Derrick’s direction, keeping her eyes on the road. She smiled when the familiar Triumph rolled into view. Matte black and gunmetal gray with enough chrome to shine and flash, the bike brought as much attention as the throaty growl of the pipes. She did not need to see the rider to know he looked like a modern-day knight riding a dangerous steed. She launched herself from the booth and ran from the diner as the bike pulled up and parked outside Benickie Animal Clinic. He had already dismounted by the time she hit the street, and Tala slid to a stop when he turned and faced her. Sawyer.

He stood with his hands hooked in his jeans and a smile that lit her up inside. She loosed a loud whoop of joy that made heads turn in her direction as she broke into a sprint. She ignored the looks, the smiles sent her way as she ignored the blare of a horn from an indignant motorist. Sawyer stepped toward her in a familiar, casual, wide-legged swagger. His jeans hung loosely around narrow hips. The chain looped from his belt to behind his hip bounced against his leg under an unbuttoned flannel and a bright white T-shirt.

A few feet from him, she leaped into the air, confident he would catch her. He did. She wrapped her arms around his neck and her legs around his waist and hugged him tight as he spun them both. He smelled of cigarettes, spearmint, the cologne he preferred, and sweat. She pulled back and, with both hands on his cheeks, studied him. His blonde hair was longer than it had been when she had seen him last. It hung over his collar, the ends near to brushing his shoulders. He sported a neatly groomed mustache and goatee beard that framed his perfect smile. His blue eyes blazed.

“What are you doing here? I thought you wouldn’t be back until your mom’s wedding; that’s not for six more months.”

“I missed you, too.”

“I missed the hell out of you. Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?” she asked.

“I wanted to surprise you.”

“Would you mind getting your hands off her ass?”

Derrick. She had forgotten all about him. Tala peeked over Sawyer’s shoulder and smiled. He did not return the gesture.

“I said…” Derrick repeated.

“I heard you.”

Sawyer was not quick to temper, but she recognized the tone of his voice and the note of warning under the words. She had imagined a better introduction.

“Put me down,” she whispered. Sawyer let her go but slow. Her body slid down his and the friction of his torso against hers caused a confusing sensation deep in her stomach. Shaking it off, she stepped between them.

“Derrick, I’d like to introduce you to Sawyer Gavin. Sawyer, this is Derrick Sloane. He’s the manager over at the inn and a friend.” She said it with enough force Sawyer would understand Derrick was more than a friend.

Derrick extended his hand. “I’ve heard a lot about you. Your mother is a lovely woman.”

“Thank you. I’ve heard of you, but that’s about it.” Sawyer looked at her. Derrick’s hand fell to his side. “Are you dating this guy?”

“I am.”

Sawyer walked away. Her jaw dropped.

“That was the Sawyer you’re always talking about? Not impressed.” Derrick took her hand.

She watched Sawyer until he disappeared inside the veterinary hospital. Tala turned and laid her hand on Derrick’s chest. “I’m sorry about that. He’s normally not rude. I don’t know what got into him.”
