VOLUME 1
The road to hell is paved by good intentions.
I’m living proof of that.
When I met my wife I had good intentions. When I stayed in a marriage that doesn’t work (to put it lightly) I had good intentions.
But then she came to work for me.
She was supposed to just be a desire I would never fulfill.
I am a married man.
A father,
and she is too young.
But then, my wife crossed the line, and she came offering something I couldn’t say no to, and all my good intentions went right where I was going.
To hell.

VOLUME 2
Hell seems to be my life’s final destination. I thought I was already there but I was wrong. Every step, every breath, every decision is leading me there.
Heather should have been a quick fix, an easy lay, someone to make me forget about life……for a second.
She turned out to be more than that. She is my Kryptonite. Not even in my wildest dreams did I think that another woman, other than my wife, would consume me so completely.
I love Heather
She is my soul, my heart, every breath that I take.
I want to give her everything.
I want to be her everything…
However, my wife has other ideas.
When she comes and spills her secret,
I must make a choice before all hell breaks loose…

VOLUME 3
I ran from him…
I ran because I fell in love with him and he could never be mine. I left because he lied, he never loved me, he will never be free and he will never be mine.
He didn’t make me any promises, but I was still naive… and I ended up in hell…
Now I have to live in it…

In the hectic life she leads (and loves every second of it), she never thought about writing.
But, then one day a name popped in her head, then, the snippets of things, and she sat down and started typing.
Next thing, she wrote a book.

BLURB:

For Mackenzie Green life is full of regrets; regrets from choices she made in the past, regrets for the things she’ll never see in her future. She regrets letting her grades slip while her sister was in rehab, ensuring she’ll never break away from the rumor-run, small town she lives in. 

She regrets breaking up with her future All American football playing boyfriend, Brayden Turner out of fear of getting hurt. Most of all she regrets every decision she made leading up to the night that changed her life forever.

 It’s only after Brayden cuts her off completely that Mackenzie realizes how much she wants him in her life. She’s learns that losing what you love breaks you, but sometimes it’s the only way to tap into your inner strength. 

Can Mackenzie find the courage to learn from her mistakes and move forward or will she spend her days consumed with regrets? 

Is it too late to convince Brayden she wants him in her life and that she’s in it for the long haul? 

Most of all, can she accept that sometimes bad things happen no matter how hard you try to protect yourself from them? 

Can she put it all behind her or will she live an unfulfilled life full of regrets?.

Title: Shaw
Author: Apryl Baker
Genre: Sports Romance
Publication Date: July 23rd, 2021
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
Cora Stevens was on the verge of having it all before her life changed forever. She was betrayed by the one person she loved most in the world, and everything came crashing down around her, leaving her lost and vulnerable. When life dealt her another painful blow, she ran from Boston and its dark memories. 

She wanted to start over, to forget her past and forge a new life. Only the past has a way of coming back to haunt you, and she ran headfirst into him when he came into her ER. 

Now everything’s changed. 

Four years ago, Shaw Chandler hurt the one person who meant more to him than anyone. Now he has the chance to set that hurt right and get back his best friend and the one woman he’s never been able to forget. The woman he loves with everything in him. 

He’s determined to win her back and earn her forgiveness. 

But there are some things Shaw doesn’t know, and it’s possible Cora’s secrets will tear them even further apart.

So who am I?

Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

After an ugly break-up, I moved back home to make a better life for my
daughter and myself. I thought I landed my dream job as an assistant athletic

Excerpt
“So, you’re really not coming out with me?” “Not tonight.”
“What are you gonna do instead? Sit in your room and hang out with Mrs Palmer?”
“Who?” “You know…Mrs Palmer and her five daughters?” Bryce was looking at me
like I should know exactly what he was carrying on about. The truth was, I had
no fucking idea. He’d completely lost the plot. “Spank the monkey? Flog your
log?” Ah, now I knew where he was going with this. Arsehole. “Choke the
chicken? Jerkin’ your gherkin?” Holding up my hand, I begged. “Please! Enough.
Please stop.” “So touchy. Maybe you should try giving the old slug a tug. You
never know, it might relax you. You know, take the edge off. Relieve some of
that pent-up stress.”

“Love at first sight.” It’s such a cliché. But when I saw her across a crowded room I couldn’t take my eyes off her.
 
One can say I’m the modest type. I don’t walk up to a girl, introduce myself and expect her to fall at my feet just because I’m a NHL player. If friends didn’t give me a little push me in her direction, I probably never would have approached her. But I’m so glad I did.
 
The electricity between us blew me away. From our first kiss to the first night we spent together it was clear. Paige was the one.
 
But something is holding her back, And with the trade deadline looming, she’s using it as an excuse to push me away.
 
Luckily, I know how to chase dreams; it’s how I made it to the NHL. I like a challenge, and I never quit until I get what I want. 
 
And what I want is Paige.

Title: The Marriage Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: June 12, 2019
Logan Ward doesn’t want any more women in his life.
Being a football player and legal guardian to his four younger sisters means his playbook is full. However, one of them just landed in the hospital, which gives his brother the shot he needs to challenge Logan for custody.
 
Legal counsel says there’s only one thing Logan can do—find himself a wife.
Paige McKinney doesn’t always think things through.
 
Like walking away from her modeling career without a thought of what might come next. She really doesn’t think it through when she proclaims herself Logan’s fiancé at the hospital, simply because the sexy—albeit grumpy—football player forgot his cell phone at a party and security won’t let her pass. It’s not her fault it was overheard by the worst possible person.
A bargain is struck, and a fake marriage is the perfect solution. But the simple solution creates a whole new problem: they’re not as different as they seem. The reluctant groom has fire inside him, and his impetuous bride is about to light the match.

“There is just something so completely consuming about the way this author can write a story.” – BooksandBandanas

“1000 Stars for Karla Sorensen newest book The Marriage Effect. Karla has written one masterpiece y’all are going to flip for!!” – Andrea Britton

 

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.
