Waltz into Fire #NewRelease #romance #suspense #PNR #NewSeries #books #reading

Fallon and Zane must trust one another if they hope to win the desperate race against time with their souls on the line.

Waltz into Fire
What would you do if you heard fire whispering in your ear? Would you listen? What if that fire led you to your soul mate...only to discover he had two weeks left to live? Would you walk away or seize the time remaining? What if, during those few days, you learned the man you loved was linked to an evil entity? Do you trust your love?

Firefighter, Fallon Anderson, believes she’s gone mad. While she searches for a young boy in a blazing house, the fire speaks to her, guiding her to his location. Once she has him safely outside, the boy is whisked off to the hospital while a handsome paramedic onsite tends to her injuries. Though she’s sworn off men since her last boyfriend broke her heart, she might make an exception for the attractive medic.

Zane West’s days are numbered. Down to less than three weeks, he spends what time he has left saving lives. He’s impressed by the sexy firefighter carrying the kid from the burning home. Attraction flares, but with only a few days of his life remaining, what would be the point of starting a relationship? However, her injuries dictate otherwise, and when he patches up Fallon, sparks fly between them…literally.

Passion ignites regardless of the secrets they both struggle to keep hidden. And it’s those very secrets that hurl them into a paranormal battle. Fallon and Zane will have to trust one another with their deepest fears if they hope to win the desperate race against time where the prize on the line is their souls. Only together can they hope to survive.

Upcoming Release!

Victoria's Destiny is set to release on Monday! I'm so excited. This is a book that I've worked on for a know, the characters wouldn't shut up until I'd told the story how they said it happened? Yeah. Like that. LOL

It'll release at Amazon and also be on KU. This paranormal romantic thriller is near and dear to my heart, and I hope you love it as much as I loved writing it! <3

 Victoria's Destiny

For as long as Victoria Spiere can remember, she’s been cursed with visions that reveal when someone's life is about to change. Living in the shadows, she’s afraid the world might learn her secret and label her the freak that she believes she is. When a crack reporter discovers her ability, splashing her face on the cover of a tell-all rag, her worst nightmare is realized. Abandoning the security of her home, she takes refuge with her best friend in Savannah, Georgia.

For eighteen months, Detective River Chastain hunted the Valentine Killer, intent on stopping his murderous spree in Austin, Texas. But just when the killer is discovered and the madness ends, River’s entire life turns upside down. Put on trial, dragged through the courts, and relieved of his badge and gun, he believes his career is at an end...until he’s offered a detective’s job in Savannah. Two weeks after moving to the East Coast, he finds himself facing a murder eerily similar to those perpetrated by the Valentine Killer. When a sultry blonde knows more about the case than she should, he’s not sure what to think. Could she be a copycat, deciding to take up where Austin’s infamous murderer left off?

Within days of her arrival in Savannah, Victoria finds herself at the top of the handsome detective’s suspect list. But the more time she spends with him, the harder she falls for him. Then the cursed visions come fast and heavy, linking everyone dear to her to the killer. Time is running out, and with only two weeks to convince River that she’s not the killer, she unwittingly leads the detective into a sinister paranormal world that neither of them knew existed. Can their love survive the evil stalking the women of Savannah?

His Wild Bride

She's always loved being a reporter...
until the story is about her.

Dawson MacKay plans to open a pub with his brother, but he has a lot to learn. Taking a job for three months at Pat’s Irish Pub seems like the perfect place to acquire the finer points of running a business. The first couple months pass without a hitch—the pay is good, the information invaluable, and women hit on him every night. However, nursing a broken heart, he doesn’t take a single woman up on her offer. Then an auburn-haired beauty falls into his arms, and his world is turned upside down.

For as long as she can remember, Sophie O’Neill has always wanted to be a reporter. Digging deep and finding the truth is her passion. But then her boss sends her on the most challenging assignment yet. Determined to finish the story, she jumps in feet first only to find herself at the center of a nightmare. She loves being a reporter…until the story is about her.

Thrown together, Sophie and Dawson are held hostage to the whims of destiny. And though neither believes in love at first sight, they find themselves falling hard and fast for one another. But time is running out. And the nightmare stalking Sophie is closer than either of them realizes.

Lethal Intent

Drone pilot Jamie MacKay parts ways with the US Air Force to come home to Cedar Valley and take ownership of a bakery. His aunt passed away, leaving him Desserts du Jour. Now he must decide whether to keep the business or sell it. Thing is, he’s been in the Air Force for so long he’s not sure what he should do next in his life. Then he sees a sexy blonde….

The Omega Team sends Lily Vaughn on assignments around the world, helping people in need as well as executing off-the-books work for the government. She’s faced down mob leaders, murders, and drug lords, never flinching once. Her latest assignment takes her to Cedar Valley, California, and into the most dangerous mission of her life—one no amount of training or experience could’ve prepared her for. She must not only protect Jamie MacKay but her heart from his tantalizing kisses.

When a terrorist steps on US soil, The Omega Team is called into action. Lives hang in the balance as Jamie and Lily uncover secrets, unravel misinformation, and try to stop a deadly agenda. And, with nothing what it seems, it will take them both to survive a terrorist’s lethal intent.

.....When a handsome alien crash lands on Lyra Sohns’ planet, everything changes. Could it be love? No, she marked that possibility off long ago. Besides, what does she have to offer? She can’t walk. A disease is killing her. All she can do is sit on her balcony, watching the great dragons of Andelyl soar through the sky. But still…does she dare listen to the voice of hope whispering in her ear?
.....Rusch Helyx has fought for the Tav Legion longer than he cares to remember. There must be a point to the blur of battles and the struggle to survive. But what choice does he have? When enemy fire blasts them out of hyperspace, mortally crippling their vessel, Rusch and his comrades abandon ship, spiraling to the surface of yet another planet. There he discovers a sexy redhead who needs his help…and, suddenly, the Universe holds meaning.
.....As time runs short, the odds stack against them. Can Lyra and Rusch survive the dangerous risks they’re forced to take to save the ones they love?

Heart of a Dragon: L.J. Garland - 4****Stars
Lyra sits on the balcony in her home watching the city dragons fly. Lyra has a disease that is attacking her vital organs and there is nothing that can be done for her. She now sits in a wheelchair and watching her beloved dragons is what gives her the greatest pleasure. It is her brother Ralion that looks after since the death of their mother but everything in her life changes when aliens attack the city and kill the dragons that have been guarding it forever. The weapons in the city are no match for the creatures attacking them and for the men dressed in armor.

Ralion manages to hide her in the pantry behind some sacks of grain and then runs out to distract them. He is caught but his attempt at distraction doesn't work when one of the soldiers enters the pantry with his gun raised and looks Lyra right in the eye. Something amazing happens because the soldier feels a bond with Lyra and senses that she is dying. He leaves her behind to die at her own pace.

From the moment Rusch saw Lyra he couldn't get her out of his mind. His feelings for her were something he never experienced before but he was part of the Legion and had a job to do. Rusch was just one of hundreds taken from their planet and brought into the Legion. Lyra knows that she will die soon but wants to save her brother. She had been working on a secret project for a year and now it was time to finish it. She was building a dragon and if she could finish it before she died maybe, just maybe she could do some good against the aliens.

This is just a small taste of what happens in this book but I don't want to reveal too much. Needless to say alot happens, some good and some bad.

Heart Of Dragon.
By L. J. Garland.
This one is really different.
Lyra is dying, and she knows she hasn't got long left. She loves to sit on her balcony and watch the dragons flying. One day invaders come and completely destroy everything she knows.
Rusch is one of the invaders. He us sad with what he has had to do, but it us necessary. Why can't he follow the rules when faced with a sick young woman.
The invaders are shifters, but not like any you by have read about before. Our heroine defies all the laws of nature.
Really good fun.
