The Seeds Of Time - Book 1

This intensely romantic yet realistic action and adventure novel spans two generations and the unimaginable gulf between the Second World War and the present.

While Richard is battling with his feelings, by chance he enters into the dark, often surreal world of his dead father's past life spent during the Second World War. It is Sorrel's Grandfather, an American Air Force pilot, who contacts Richard with some intriguing news which helps Richard to his senses.

His story and that of his father are crafted from the ruins of war and the indestructibility of love. The action is non-stop, the locations are intriguing and the characters are appealing. There is tension, romance and harrowing escapes all woven within a story that captures the imagination and keeps the reader guessing until the very end.

In Sorrel he finds what he believes is his soul-mate, whereas sexy Miranda keeps Richard guessing. When Richard discovers an old war-torn photograph of a woman and two children he is shaken to the core. What was it his father did & never divulged to his wife and family? Harvest is a world where tragedy rests alongside joy. Harvest deals with harsh, cruel, & often despicable conditions - at the same time describing the indestructibility of love in past & present lives. This is a story of deep romance, bravery, survival, heartbreak and happiness, all poignantly & convincingly conveyed. Richard's compelling desire to finally lay his father's dark secrets to rest brings warmth and understanding into the two intertwined stories. All perfectly blended with non-stop action, intriguing locations, and appealing characters.

What readers are saying:

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I found it incredibly moving at times and thought provoking, especially the POW camps sections. I felt the storyline was very good and Faith Mortimers's descriptive and very readable style of writing added much interest to the story."

"…a skillfully crafted historical novel that spans two generations. A powerful and emotional read…"

"What I think is particularly notable - and what is true of all of Faith's writing - is the great talent she has for description as well as story telling. In 'The Seeds of Time', this is revealed in the wonderful, vivid descriptions of the peril and beauty of being at sea with all the dangers this involves."

Wishing You and Yours a Joyous Easter


The Billionaire Princess by Christina Tetreault


Book 3 of The Sherbrookes of Newport Series



She was raised as an American Princess.

Following the betrayal of a former lover, Sara Sherbrooke swore off relationships, too afraid she would be used again. Instead she has devoted all her energy to succeeding in politics without relying on her family name. That is until one night in
Hawaii with her brother's best friend Christopher Hall.

He is a self-made billionaire.

Technological genius and CEO of Hall Technology, Christopher Hall first met Sara Sherbrooke when he and Jake Sherbrooke were college roommates. While attending Jake's wedding in
Hawaii, Christopher is reintroduced to Sara, a beauty who was once way out of his league. But now as the most eligible bachelor in Silicon Valley, the only thing stopping Christopher from pursuing Sara is the thought of betraying his best friend.

As they work together to promote a new education initiative, neither can deny the attraction between them. But will their growing romance be worth all of the consequences?

What reviewers are saying:

"Excellent book. I enjoyed reading about Sara and learning she was not the spoiled princess. I look forward to book 4. The entire series have been excellent."

First love. Second chances. Secrets with the power to change lives.

When Will Kincaid’s professional football career comes to an abrupt end in a single night, he’s left to figure out what he’s going to do with the rest of his life. He heads home to the small Virginia town where he grew up and crosses paths with Hannah Jacobs, the only girl in high school who had ever rejected him. It’s Hannah who once made him question the choices he had made, and it’s Hannah who’s making him question them all over again. But with the weight of a secret he’s managed to hide from the world his entire adult life hanging over him, he can’t afford to question his choices.

Hannah Jacobs had once made the choice to deny her feelings for Will Kincaid, at the time finding it the only possible option for a young girl intent on burying a nightmare she only wanted to forget. The life she’s made for herself as a librarian in Lake Perdue is a quiet one, and she’s hardly prepared for the day when Will rams his fancy Ferrari into her dependable old clunker.

Sand Dollar by Sebastian Cole


~A Highly-Rated Paranormal Fantasy~


Noah Hartman, eighty years old, lies in a hospital bed recounting his life of love and loss. His loved ones arrive to listen, and we're transported back in time to Noah's younger years.

Though outwardly seeming to have it all, Noah, at thirty-five, is actually an empty, lost, and broken man running on automatic pilot. He has no true identity of his own, lured in by the reward of great wealth and the illusion of running the family business empire some day. In truth, Noah is living a life that was not meant for him.

Enter Robin, twenty-five years old, who -- in direct contrast to Noah -- is a vivacious, free spirit. Full of life and always living in the moment, Robin's love saves Noah. But like a passing breeze, she disappears without a trace.

Years pass, and Noah can't get her out of his mind or out of his heart. Then he discovers her hidden secret, an underlying condition responsible for her having left. Noah has no choice but to move on with his life and he meets Sarah.

On Noah and Sarah's wedding day, Robin discovers the clue that Noah had surreptitiously sent her, inspiring her to race to the wedding to try to stop it. With the wedding in shambles, the scene jumps back to present day, with both Robin and Sarah sitting in Noah's hospital room. But which one did he choose?

Wait For You by J. Lynn


Currently #1 Kindle Bestseller!



Some things are worth waiting for...

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago--an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe--please God--make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn't need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she's building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing...

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but
Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that's just so... so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet...

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she's has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can
Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for...

What readers are saying:

"I don't think I have ever read a NA Contemporary novel with as much depth as this one. It really moved me and by the end I was just speechless over how inspirational and uplifting it was as well as being sexy and cute and funny and emotional." ~K Books
 
"Wait For You is uniquely different from anything else J. Lynn's written but it might possibly be her best work yet." ~Jenuine Cupcakes

"For all of you in love with Aiden and Daemon, PREPARE YOURSELVES! Your heart will have to expand a little more for
Cam." ~Total Bookaholic

"For the love of all things
CAM, this book deserves more than 5 stars." ~Mundie Moms
