Blue’s life is right on course. Now that she’s gotten involved with the Odin’s Fury Motorcycle Club, not only has she made great friends, but she’s fallen head over heels for the club’s enforcer, Mooky.

Dream man, dream job, all on the way to her dream life.
Until everything shatters.
Mooky should’ve come clean sooner. He thought he could settle it before Blue found out. Now, it’s too late. The truth could expose the club business, or worse, it could cost him Blue.
Cutting ties with Mooky would cost her the life that she’s only just found—that she doesn’t want to lose. But staying makes Blue question the very person she is—or she thought she was.

Barb
 is a Carolina girl by right and a Texan by birth. By day she’s a desk jockey for a rural transportation company and a book lover, reading through as many books as she can. At night, though, she turns into her alter ego: a writer—cape optional, depending on her mood.

Her stories are a mix of real-life events, personal experiences, and the craziness of her own imagination and those of her best friends. And when their imaginations blend together, it can be crazy. Barb writes in multiple genres, encounters new adventures, creates new worlds, and has a fantastic time breathing life into new stories, creating something she hopes inspires anyone who reads to fall in love with them as she has.

Barb lives by one little rule: tomorrow is never guaranteed, so make sure you live each day to its fullest.

KA Graham grew up in a small town in Oregon. Through the years, her love for writing and poetry turned into something she had only dreamt of – writing her own book. She’s faced many obstacles in her life, but the love and devotion of her parents have always kept her grounded. She is an avid reader, blogger and does PA work for a few authors, which keeps her quite busy. She’s a hard rock music lover and horror movie buff with a love and appreciation for tattoos. Her addictions include copious amounts of caffeine, Chinese food, and Haribos.

Prologue

The call changed everything.

The call ordering me to stand down. I stood, walking in circles, the rage stiffening my neck, eyes drawn to my gun safe. I paced toward it, then shuffled back. They had kidnapped my wife, intent on destroying me. But I didn’t know who or why.

I had held a gun many times in the last decade, but not since protecting the US Secretary of State several years ago. It was the first and only time I killed anyone. I’d never completely recovered. I hated guns, hated killing, until now. Sometimes killing was necessary. Grandpa had taught me that. And I would again if that’s what it took to get Rebecca back.

Approaching the safe, I removed the Glock 17 and 26. The only thing that mattered was rescuing Rebecca.

Our sons needed their mother, I needed my wife, and would do anything to find her or die trying.

Hi! I’m Monica. I write romance, not just any romance, though. I write romance that feels real and deep and has other fun and exciting elements to it. I love including other genres in my romance stories like action, suspense, and crime.

It all started with my love of reading. My mom used to read to me every night. I can’t remember a time in my childhood when she didn’t, until I became a rebellious teenager of course! This love of reading eventually morphed into wanting to create my own stories. I fell in love with writing at a young age. I started with fanfiction at the age of 12 and have been writing ever since.

As I’ve read other’s stories and have written my own, I’ve found it can be easy to let characters fall into societal stereotypes. I feel this is especially easy with female characters. They can so often fall into the Mary-Sue type and be perfect with no flaws or sharp edges or, you know, real personalities. Here’s what I aim to bring to you. Real, messed up, flawed, angry, hurt, traumatized characters.

As a victim of trauma myself, I aim to bring a real-life feel to my characters and stories. While this all may sound sad or morbid, that’s not all I bring to the table I assure you. These characters are also strong and independent despite their pasts, like so many of us are. Take a look at my work and see if you can relate or be inspired by the words on the pages, because you are strong and amazing and a survivor too!

Come on in and join a fantastic community focused on love, support, and equality. Your comments help keep me inspired and motivated! So, if you’ve got anything to say, say it! Thank you so much for being part of everything here. There are plenty of ways that you can become more involved. You can add me on Facebook and follow me on TikTok @monicamishogrems_author. Make sure to come say hi, I promise to respond!

★★★★★ Amazon Review – “This was such a cute and fun and heartwarming story about journeys and destinations and real life situations.”
 
“If life was regulated by star ratings, I would be a one… maybe one and a half star.”
 
Single mom, Charlie, is trying to make it to the end of the week without another major catastrophe. Her day-to-day life is nothing what she expected it to be, and she doesn’t have time to figure out where everything went wrong. Keeping her head above water has proven to be harder than avoiding her ex-husband and his new girlfriend.
Topping the list of things she doesn’t have time for: laundry, balancing her bank account, and love.
But when dreamy Reid Fletcher, a handsome doctor from the city, moves into her little hometown of Blueberry Pointe, Charlie wonders if maybe her list is too long.
It seems the sexy doctor is determined to find a way into Charlie’s life, even if that means jumping into the eye of the storm and making her struggles his own.
Until life happens, tragedy strikes, and everything takes an all too familiar nose dive.
Can Charlie see through her brokenness and find her way back to happiness? Or will she do what she’s always done and put everyone else’s happiness before her own?
No one knows exactly how this will turn out, especially not… A girl named Charlie.

A crushing betrayal. A transcendent bond. Three thousand miles to the Isle.

 

My mother loved the city, and it loved her. Until the Turn. Until leaving became our only hope of survival. She’s slipping away more each day. I can feel it. The tide threatens to take me with her, but I’d be lying if I said I’d rather be anywhere else—with Florence is where I belong.

 

Now uprooted and on the run, we have to choose: surrender to a new beginning and leave our delicate past behind, or salvage the remains and try to find our way back.

 

Either way, I just want to go home.

 

But if home really is where the heart is, what happens when you lose heart?

 

Buy it now! Immerse yourself in Florence and Joanna’s harrowing journey to the Isle.

A former Floridian and Seattleite, R.M. Carpus now writes fantasy and science fiction from Philadelphia, her birthplace and current home base. She is co-founder of Impossible Things Publishing (ITP), a collaborative anthology project, and a student and tutor at Saint Joseph’s University. The aftermath following the tragic loss of her mother led her to return to her Catholic faith, which she today counts as her greatest gift and joy in life, along with her family, friends, and love for storytelling. She speaks a little French, dreams of living in the English countryside, and like most writers, runs on coffee. She’s happiest outdoors—especially in the Pacific Northwest—or cuddled up at home with her animals while reading, writing, or watching classic movies.

As sheriff, I live by a code of honor.
A code that doesn’t include defiling my little sister’s best friend, no matter how badly I may want to.
But then the bodies start piling up, turning my small town into a graveyard for a madman.
And Trixie, the girl I’m not supposed to want, disappears.
Screw the code.
Trixie is mine, and there is nothing I won’t do — no rule or law I won’t break — to get her back.
Even as I fight to save my girl, I’m forced to face a horrible truth: Evil has come to Theophilus.
And we may not be strong enough to defeat it.
