Book Description:

When secrets hide in plain sight it’s only a matter of time before illusions crumble and expose harsh truths that threaten to destroy the relationship one woman cherishes beyond all others… with her mother.

Brokenhearted and searching for solace, Renee Kirkland retreats to her hometown during her summer off from teaching to lean into those she loves the most and soothe her wounds. Instead of finding healing, she stumbles across an intimate letter from the father she never knew. With his every scrawled word, he obliterates everything Renee thought she knew about her mother… and herself.

On the heels of her doctor’s diagnosis, Lynn Kirkland sits in the ashes of what remains of her life and face-to-face with an uncertain future. Reeling from a new reality she hasn’t begun to accept, Renee confronts her with a long-buried secret, resurrecting a decades-old ache and exposing Lynn’s most painful insecurities. In order to hold onto the delicate remains of her relationship with her daughter and regain the trust lost due to her secrecy, she’ll have to lay herself bare.

With each passing moment as summer slides into the fall, mother and daughter discover how, despite their differences, their choices have tethered them to one another and steered them down similar roads. But will the agonizing truths that come to light be the final wedge to fracture their relationship forever or will revelations set them free from their painful pasts forging an impenetrable bond neither knew was possible?

Book Description:

Mel’s an R.N., and Steve’s an ex-Navy medic and physical therapist. Although they’re instantly attracted, they’ve both suffered incredible loss with the death of their significant other. Will they ever be healed enough to stop their sparring and finally admit that the attraction they’re fighting just might be love?

Melinda McDaniel has everything she’s ever wanted. Newly engaged and soon to be an RN, she’s on the fast track for promotion after deciding she’ll specialize in orthopedics. Even discovering she’s pregnant doesn’t dampen her enthusiasm for the future since she and Alex were planning on having kids eventually anyway.

But then tragedy strikes, and through no fault of her own, Mel unexpectedly loses the baby. Still grieving when there’s a knock on the door, Alex’s parents and an Air Force chaplain arrive to give her the worst news possible. Alex, an Air Force pilot also known as Hawk, has been killed in action in Iraq.

Devastated, Mel tries to move forward with her life. When she’s attempting to visit Hawk’s best friend, Luke Bryant, who refuses to have visitors, she meets Jake Loughlin, a friend of Luke’s. She’s surprised to receive a job offer at the newly built Wounded Warrior Home in Crystal Rock, Wisconsin. Maybe change would be good, Mel eventually decides, since everything in Madison reminds her of Hawk.

Steve Ryder is also trying to move on with his life after his wife has died of cancer. Nearly ready to train to become a Navy Seal, he gave up his career in the Navy to take care of his wife, Amy, while continuing his education and becoming a physical therapist. Once she’s gone, he decides he needs a change. Besides, there was a shortage of decent medical jobs in his hometown of Rice Lake, Wisconsin, whereas physical therapists were in demand throughout the state.

Steve decides to get out of town for Christmas, ending up at the Dragonfly Pointe Inn, which is coincidentally owned by Jake Loughlin, one of the founders of the newly built Crystal Rock Wounded Warrior Home.

Overhearing a conversation nearby when he’s eating lunch at the Inn’s restaurant, Steve approaches Jake and asks if he might apply for one of the positions available. Not only does Steve get the position, but he also discovers he’s exactly the kind of person that Jake had been looking for to manage the entire physical therapy program because of his military and personal life experience with PTSD as well as loss.

Sparks fly when Mel and Steve meet, but Mel is not even close to being ready for a new relationship, even one year after Hawk’s death, so she keeps Steve at arm’s length, even when they’re working together. Will they ever be healed enough to stop their sparring and finally admit that the attraction they’re fighting just might be love?

Book Description:

Tonight will be the longest night of Emily’s life. It may also be the last.

Emily is devastated when she receives an anonymous note proving her long-term boyfriend has been cheating on her.

Determined to confront him, she tracks him to a seedy bar far off the highway and they have a massive row. As she storms out the door, she rejects a stranger named Daniel who tries to pick her up.

When she returns to her car, it won’t start. Even worse, her phone has no signal, and no way is she going back into the bar to ask her boyfriend for help.

Emily has no choice but to walk. As she trudges down the desolate highway, Daniel drives by and offers her a ride. She’s scared by his sudden reappearance and refuses him again.

But Daniel won’t take no for an answer. As Emily walks on, he keeps coming back and each time he is more threatening, more menacing. As this terrifying game of cat and mouse steadily escalates, Emily begins to wonder if she’ll ever get off this lonely road alive.

But who is Daniel really? And what does he know about Emily?

Book Description:

Channel is Unreal. Mila is Real.

Two communities. One technological power play. A conflict primed to ignite.

After the devastating Campi eruption, people flocked to new Communities offering retinal implants that modify the world into something beautiful again.

Living in Paradise 3 Community, Channel’s only goal is to become a World Builder and improve the augmented reality code for everyone living there.

Her opportunities seem endless until Cerebrolink is announced.

The newest implant technology has the ability to augment all the senses.

Her dreams dashed and her skills rendered virtually useless, Channel is left with none of her prior options until she’s ripped from P3 by the Coalition, who are dead set on stopping this tech from moving forward.

Living with her parents who fought to remain independent from the Communities, Mila’s world is the antithesis of privileged.

For Mila, there is no viable future. Her dwindling peer group and a scarcity of resources add to the mounting pressure to survive independently of the Communities.

She jumps at the chance to travel with her brother Alek in search of other free Real societies.

With outdated information and almost zero knowledge of what lies ahead, Alek and Mila leave the only home they’ve ever known under cover of night.

When Mila’s and Channel’s paths collide, they are torn between the worlds they thought they knew and a mind-bending, brazen reality they could never have imagined.

Will they risk it all to understand what it truly means to be Real?
