Do you remember your mother telling you when you were little that you’d never meet Mr. Right if you were spending all your time and energy with Mr. Wrong?

The two main characters in Winter Interlude either didn’t heed their mother’s advice or haven’t read the book. Now, add into the plot that the two in question are enemies who regularly run into each other, given their current relationships. Paul Morrison, a hunky, blond, financial planner, has been putting time and energy into winning the heart of Kate Winter’s best friend for almost as long as Kate, a strong willed antiques dealer, has been dating James Morrison, Paul’s brother. The sparks start to fly when the two get stuck together for a three-hour drive to the mountains and years of misconceptions about each other are slowly being wiped out. It is in the confines of the BMW that the two begin their journey, taking them from being mortal enemies to lovers.

Winter Interlude tells the story of their adventure – of how they finally find love. Kate and Paul’s story is the first one in a series of four friends caught in a time warp. They can’t move on because they are stuck on their idea of their perfect dreams. But sometimes life works in mysterious ways and they are all forced by circumstances to change.

About the Author:

 

john ellsworth

 

John Ellsworth is from Arizona and practiced law nationwide. For thirty years he defended criminal clients across the United States. His first book, “The Defendants,” was published by Amazon and Subjudica House Press on January 20, 2014.

What’s next? THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER is John’s seventh Thaddeus book and will be published by Amazon in April 2015. It is the story of a skyjacking of an airliner carrying Thaddeus and Christine, his paralegal. Beside Thaddeus is Angelina Sosa, a recent journalism grad who’s out to make her mark. She decides the skyjacking might be a good enough story to win a Pulitzer Prize or write a New York Times Bestseller, so she tracks Thaddeus down after he rushes off the plane to help Christine when Russian Intelligence takes her off the plane when it sets down in Moscow. Does Angelina get her New York Times best seller? You’ll have to be the judge of that, but portions of her story are actually included as a book-within-a-book.

“I love writing these books.They are the kinds of books I love to read, full of information about a wide spectrum of characters, lots of dialogue, and, as always, plenty of action and traps for the young attorney. The books represent the kind of learning experience I went through when I was Thaddeus’ age and learning how to patty-cake when it came to doing the right thing for clients.”

Now…back to the work-in-progress: Where was Thaddeus again? Oh, yes, he was….

A Sweeping Saga

As the sole survivor of the car crash that killed her parents, grief-stricken paramedic Kit MacKlenna is stunned to learn her life is built on lies. A legacy from her father includes a faded letter and a well-worn journal. The journal reveals she was abandoned as a baby 160 years ago. The only clues to her identity are a blood-splattered shawl, a locket with the portrait of a 19th century man, and a Celtic brooch with magical powers. Kit decides to continue her father’s twenty-five year search for her identity, and solve her birth parents’ murders.

Scotsman Cullen Montgomery, a San Francisco-bound lawyer who resembles the ghost who has haunted Kit since childhood, helps her join a wagon train heading West. More dangerous than the river crossings, bad water, and disease encountered on the trail, is Cullen’s determination to expose her lies and uncover the source of her unusual knowledge and life saving powers.

Kit is convinced if she can survive the perilous journey and Cullen’s accusations, as well as thwart his attempts to seduce her, she might solve the mystery of her heritage and return home without leaving her heart on the other side of time.

Join Mia as she journeys to discover the truth in Whispering Woods. This box set contains three full novels.

The Waiting Booth (Book 1): A missing boy, government agents, an interdimensional portal… Mia has one goal for her senior year at Whispering Woods High—find her missing older brother. But when her science project reveals a portal into another dimension, she learns that travelers are moving in and out of her woods in the most alarming way and government agents Regulus and Arizona are policing their immigration. Mia’s drawn to the mysterious, aloof Regulus, but it’s no time for a crush. She needs to find out what they know about her brother, while the agents fight to save the world from viral contamination. But when Regulus reveals that he knows Mia’s secrets, she begins to wonder if there’s more going on than she thought…and if she was wrong to trust him…

Whisper of Memory (Book 2): Weapons training and winter formals… a deadly combination. All Mia ever wanted was to fit in at Whispering Woods High. But being a portal-finder who dates a guy from another dimension sort of makes it hard. Mia’s brother disappeared over a year ago, and now agents from the IIA are policing people’s movements through dimensions. Between learning about weaponry, finding the perfect dress for the winter formal, and catching bad guys, who has time to fit in?

Watcher of Worlds (Book 3): Senior year should bring fun, friends, and happiness. Not portals, treachery, and murder. Seventeen-year-old Mia Taylor, gatekeeper to an interdimensional portal, wants nothing more than to heal from her romance gone wrong. Illegally falling for her co-worker Regulus had been a huge mistake. But when Regulus goes rogue to hunt down a murderer, Mia must forget her broken heart and use her unique abilities to save him.

Marty Williams, an Obama speechwriter, does not get the promised administration job, cannot return to the newspaper because it is closing, loses everything, and sets out in a snowstorm with all he has left, his car and his dog, for California where his picaresque adventures begin — romance, the movie business, dining with political elites to living out of his car, a panorama of people in the world of woes we know today, and a president elect assassination plot unjustly tied to Marty.

NO ONE WILL HEAR YOU SCREAM

A serial killer terrorizing a small mountain town sets his sights on those hunting him.

Cody Thomas is an FBI agent working with the Violent Crimes Unit in Los Angeles, California when he takes a week off to decompress in his hometown of Big Bear.

Jilly Reid has left the Central Homicide Unit of San Bernardino and moved up the mountain to her hometown of Big Bear to get away from death and her cheating ex-husband.

HE’S WATCHING

No sooner does Cody arrive in town when he runs into Jilly, a girl he knew in high school. But there’s no time to reminisce, she’s in a hurry. An incoherent call came into dispatch. A fisherman down in Hunters Cove is carrying on about finding dead women. A lot of them.

HE’S WAITING

Cody blackmails Jilly into letting him ride along. What they find is an underwater graveyard. A serial killer is using the lake to dump his victims. Seven women, brutally tortured, are chained to cinder blocks, their long tresses waving back and forth with the current. Their faces set in a silent scream for all eternity.

HE’S PISSED

At first, Cody and Jilly think the killer is long gone, but soon they learn he’s watching them. Taunting them. Then women start disappearing at an alarming rate.

YOU’RE DEAD

Meagan McInnis and Jesse James Thomas go to meet his brother, Cody, at the family cabin for spring break. But relaxing is the last thing they get when Meagan’s sister, Bridget, goes missing.

Now the clock is ticking. Can the killer be stopped before time runs out?
LAST SCREAM- The Thomas Family #3- NOW AVAILABLE
EACH SCREAM COULD BE YOUR LAST

He kidnaps them. Punishes them. Sends them to hell.
Then he displays them so everyone will know they are sinners.

IF HE FINDS YOU

Texas Ranger William H. Thomas is called to a small town where the body of a mutilated woman has been found. She’s kneeling and trussed to a tree, and her hands are tied together as if in prayer. Something horrific lies in her arms. No sooner does he catch the case, when the FBI swoops in to take it.

HE WILL NEVER

Special Agent Savannah St. Germaine, from the Louisiana branch of the FBI, is working a case in which the killer leaves his victims nailed up in crucifixion fashion. A similar MO shows up in Texas. Certain it’s the same killer, she heads to Austin to investigate further. Her suspicions are confirmed, but the powers that be aren’t willing to hand over the case. If she wants to work it, she’ll have to partner up with one of their own.

LET YOU GO

Lorelei Hamilton finally gets the nerve to leave her abusive husband. Everything is well thought out. She’ll ditch her car, dump her cell phone, change her name and establish a new identity. But she hadn’t planned on being abducted by a psychopath who makes her husband’s violent outbursts look like child’s play.

Now Will and Savannah are on the hunt for the most sadistic serial killer the South has ever seen.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

In this critically acclaimed novel of historical fiction, Juliet Gael portrays the poignantly courageous life of Charlotte Brontë, the woman who transformed her heart’s loss into one of the most enduring literary works of all time – Jane Eyre.

Despite two offers of marriage, Charlotte entertains no hopes of marrying for love. Struggling with a powerful, destructive passion for a married professor in Brussels, she returns to England where she must come to terms with the isolation of her life in the desolate Yorkshire moors.

Duty-bound to a blind father and an alcoholic brother, Charlotte and her sisters Emily and Anne conceive a plan to earn badly needed income: they will publish. Returning to the imaginary worlds that had been their solace since childhood, the sisters craft novels quite unlike anything written before. Against a backdrop of domestic chaos, they go about their business in utmost secrecy, writing under pen names and deftly spiriting manuscripts back and forth to publishers under the noses of unsuspecting family and friends.

Charlotte’s Jane Eyre becomes an overwhelming literary success, catapulting her into the spotlight of London’s fashionable literary scene, and into the arms of her new publisher, George Smith, an irresistibly handsome young man whose interest in his fiercely intelligent and spirited new author seems to go beyond professional duty. Just as life begins to hold new promise, unspeakable tragedy descends on the obscure little parsonage, throwing London and George into the distance and leaving Charlotte to fear that the only romance she will ever find is at the tip of her pen. But another man waits in the Brontës’ Haworth parsonage—the quiet but determined curate Arthur Nicholls. After secretly pining for Charlotte since he first came to work for her father, Arthur suddenly reveals his heart to her.

Romancing Miss Brontë is a moving portrayal of an extraordinary woman whose life and work articulated our deepest human longing: to love and be loved in return.

Three others – a guitarist, an engineer, and a retiree – receive similar calls. Each family possesses a key to a four-lock safe found buried in a Virginia courthouse, though their connection is as mysterious as the safe itself. Their ancestors should not have interacted, had no apparent reason to bury the safe, and should not have disappeared thereafter.

Bearing their keys, Michelle and the other descendants converge in the courthouse basement and open the safe, revealing the truth about their ancestors – a truth stranger, more deadly, and potentially more world-changing than any of them could have imagined. Now it’s up to them to keep their discovery out of the wrong hands.

Rafe Palazzo takes what he wants with no regrets. Arianna (Ari) Lynn Harlow has led a charmed life until tragedy strikes her family. He’s looking for a no-emotions attached mistress, she’s looking for redemption.

They are not a pair that should ever work, but undeniable attraction and devastating tragedies bring them together in the city by the bay where he fights to keep their relationship nothing more than an enjoyable way to meet his needs, and she battles to not lose herself in him.

Rafe once believed in happily ever after, coming from a large Italian family. He’s got the Midas touch, since every endeavor he tries turns to gold. That all ends when his wife walks out the door and leaves him blindsided. His devastation quickly turns to steel when he decides no woman will fool him again. From that point on he treats relationships as nothing more than business transactions where both party’s come out mutually benefited.

Just when Ari has sunk to the lowest she’s ever been she finds an ad in the paper announcing a job that’s too good to be true. It turns out she’s right. She makes it through the intense rounds of interviews only to find out the job is for a mistress to the powerful Rafe Palazzo, owner of Palazzo Enterprises. Rafe gives her a day to think about whether she wants the position or not, and she’s sent on her way, only to find out her mother’s near-terminal position has taken a turn for the worse. Her mom’s only in the hospital because Ari messed up, and her mother’s the one who paid the price. Is Rafe her savior, or will he take her with him straight to the depths of hell?

She sat very still in the passenger seat with her knees so close to her body that she was almost curled into the foetal position. If it wasn’t for the dire nature of the situation he could find her disposition laughable. Max glanced into the rear-view mirror to check on the children. Their faces almost mirrored their mothers except Joshua kept looking back nervously as though he expected the car to be descended on by murderous agents at any moment. Esther on the other hand was biting her nails with such vigor that she was likely to be biting through the bone soon. Now that they know and have experienced the dark side to his alternate world, Max had long ago prepared for this kind of situation but his family were innocent to a life where this kind of plan would even be necessary.

As he sped down the expressway to his safe house, Max knew that his family would never be the same again.

This is not how he intended to spend his Friday night.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Steve Larson and Elizabeth Coleman had been the best of friends – inseparable – since middle school. Once in college, they found themselves in love, but too afraid to admit it: Steve because he thought Elizabeth was too beautiful to want him; and Elizabeth because she thought Steve was too wealthy to be interested in someone so poor. But then, a family tragedy strikes, and they are pulled apart and lose touch with each other.

A chance meeting on a Christmas tree lot twenty years later changes their fates forever. Only Steve and Elizabeth can decide if they have the courage to overcome a lifetime of doubts and fears and open their hearts to each other again.

Second Chance Love was previously published in serial form as Second Chance Christmas, Second Chance Valentines, Second Chance Summer, Second Chance Thanksgiving and Second Chance Wedding. It is an innocent, lights-out romance that explores the wonder and possibilities of having a second chance at love.

In FRIENDLY FIRE, after a roadside bomb ends his career in the marines, Logan Wilde struggles to put his life back together. When he takes a job as a sheriff in a small Idaho town, he expects a quiet, peaceful life that will bore him to tears. However, Logan hides a painful secret: He suffers from sleepless nights and flashbacks that come out of nowhere, and anything can be a trigger.

From the moment the new sheriff walks through the door of Julia Cooper’s cafe, she fights the attraction between them, especially after Logan shoots a carafe right from her hands when he’s startled by a car backfiring in the street outside. Julia has seen that wild look before: She saw it in her father’s eyes right before he shoved a gun to his head and killed himself.

Julia decides she needs to meet someone average, someone who has never handled a gun. Everyone is convinced that her daughter’s teacher is the perfect match for her, but when she’s with him, she misses the sparks that always sizzle between her and Logan—and when her daughter goes missing, it’s Logan who’s there for her, Logan who searches with her, and Logan she leans on.

Worse, Logan suspects that the teacher knows something about the disappearance, and he may not be the safe, dependable guy Julia believes him to be.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Olympian Brenna Battle once had the fire. Now, she’s just burned out—and burned by love. She’s ready to retire from competitive judo and pursue a new dream in a new town, with her biggest supporter, her recently divorced little sister, Blythe. But on their first day in town, Blythe falls for local sleaze-bag reporter, Ellison Baxter, and their small-town welcome is stained by Baxter’s murder. The weapon—Blythe Battle’s hair brush.

In this fast-paced, fun cozy mystery, Brenna, the proud new owner of the building that formerly housed Bonney Bay’s lone recreational opportunity for kids, Little Swans Ballet, is ready to turn tutu-clad powder-puffs into little warriors by opening a judo school for kids in its place. But now she must clear her sister’s name and save her new dream from ending even more disastrously than her Olympic hopes. Brenna must deal with one crazy member of the local police force, who’s determined to see the sisters pay—and another cop, whose deep brown eyes just might drive Brenna crazy—in a way her battered heart just can’t take.
