Have you ever loved someone so much that you willingly walked into the darkness to save them?
 
What if someone crawled into the dark with you and offered you a way out?
 
I made a deal to save my sister and became ensnared in a world filled with depravity, finding comfort in the dark recesses of my mind. The wicked feelings deep within can overtake you if you’re left without light for too long, and I reveled in the merciless world that equally thrilled and frightened me.
 
He accepted the darker parts of me, the shame and regret, and made a deal to save me. He brought me back into the light, learning to twist my delights to his will, destroying the shameful fragments that remained. Redeeming me with his touch, he destroyed the pain that tore through my heart.
 
He was a dangerous man who became my monster and my hero, recognizing the wicked parts of me and welcoming them. Knowing what lived in the dark recesses, he understood me in way nobody ever had, guiding me, and helping me find myself. When old enemies return, I’m faced with the choice to hide in the shadows or stand and fight. They expose painful secrets that shake the foundation of my existence, threatening to destroy me from the inside out.
 
This is the story of how I walked into hell, only to be drawn out of the darkness by the most dangerous protector of them all.

I’m the fun guy.
 
The one always quick with a joke.
 
The guy who is crazy enough to do wild things to make people smile.
 
That’s how people see me.
 
That’s who I’ve presented myself to be.
 
That’s how I introduced myself to Rivet.
 
The first female Cerberus team member wasn’t impressed with my corny pickup lines and wide smile like the other women I use it on.
 
And why should she be? 
 
She’s seen it all and lived to tell the tale.
 
She took one look at me and decided she wasn’t interested.
 
I should move on, but her rejection stings.
 
I can’t seem to let it go.
 
I can’t get her out of my head.
 
I also can’t figure out if it’s the chase I crave, or if this woman is someone special I’ve been missing in my life.
 
So that really only leaves one thing …
 
Do I show her the real me?

Cooper and Jada
warned me the life of a hunter wasn’t for everyone. There’s a reason only a
handful of people, out of the millions across the planet, survive our calling.
I believed I would be the exception to the rule. A natural in the art of the
hunt. Blinded by my own arrogance, I was hellbent on proving them wrong.

At first it was
easy. The adrenaline pumping through my veins. The rush of the mystery. It kept
me going, constantly moving towards the next case.

Until… a wrong
move nearly got Cooper killed.

Now, we’re alone in
the middle of nowhere as unspeakable darkness closes in. I thought I was ready.
Now, all I want is out. Can I dig deep and channel the strength required to keep
us both alive? Or will there be a fatal cost for my mistake?

Chindi Series continues with Secrets in the Valley, a gripping page-turner that

Screams. Flames. Shivering along in the bitter Alaskan night – That’s all I can remember from before.
 
I don’t know where I came from or who I am, and I’m fairly certain I don’t want to. I am absolutely certain I don’t want to. I am absolutely certain about Andi Campbell, though; she’s my light at the end of the tunnel, but I can’t tell her that.
 
Most of True, Alaska, still shuns me because I won’t speak, but not The Campbells – and that would change if they ever found out what Andi and I did when her mother was missing last summer. Andi seems to agree, and we steer clear of each other now.
 
But Andi’s sister Delilah is getting married, and it’s impossible to avoid one another at Hennessy Cove, the secluded inn the bride and groom booked for their intimate ceremony. From the moment we touch down, something about the place fills me with dread. And every time I cross paths with the smiling innkeeper, I break out in a cold sweat.
 
Knowing Andi’s sleeping in the room next door just makes that fever worse.
 
 
 
 
 

Havenport

Welcome to Havenport, RI a fictional town not far from Newport where you’ll find romance, suspense, time travel and secrets shared by five authors in genres you love. Today they are releasing five new standalone books, come check them out and stay for a spell…

A quick note from Havenport newspaper gossip, Candy Apples…. 

Okay, here’s the skinny. Havenport’s a great town. Perfect for a gossip like me. 😉 I’ve been writing this column for years and never struggle for a story. Easiest job I’ve ever had!

We may have started as a small fishing town (stop by our maritime museum to learn more) but we’ve expanded into a thriving hub for business of all sorts. Lots of restaurants, a charming bookstore, souvenir shops, whale watching, ghost tours, even a metaphysical shop (the manager’s a member of our local coven)…there’s never a shortage of things to do here.

We’ve got Manor Road, with titans of business known for bringing the money to town—and the drama. I don’t need a shovel to dig up the dirt (or the skeletons) over there.

I’m no less busy when I take a stroll down Main Street and eavesdrop—um, I mean, talk to the shopkeepers. They’re a nosy bunch, but they’ve got your best interest at heart. I’ve seen some great couples get together over a drink at Royce’s Tavern or after dropping off a pup for daycare at Wags & Walks.

With our close proximity to major cities like Newport, Providence, Boston, and New York City, we attract just about everybody. And, in the spirit of our founding fathers, Havenport welcomes them all with open arms. And when I say everyone, I mean it.

Are you looking for a hometown hero to sweep you off your feet? A debonair best-selling author? Is a time traveler from the Roaring Twenties more your style? If you’re looking for adventure or to reunite with a lost love, you’ll find it here.

And I’ll report all the juicy details.

As they put the pieces together, they uncover a decade’s old unsolved murder implicating Cookie and Ben. Will Addy and Ethan’s blossoming love be able to stand the strain of finding the truth?
