At twenty-three, I’m left with a decision. The outcome could be life or death.

Trent hit me once, and I cried. Then he hit me again. And again. After a while, I got used to it, as I slept on the floor beside his bed, night after night.

Everyone told me to leave him, but I can't. He won't let me. 

The moment I wanted to give up on myself and any form of hope, Kemper—a tall, sexy Marine just home from Afghanistan walked into my bar. With one look in his eyes, I saw pain that mirrored my own.

At first, I thought maybe he would be my prince charming, riding in to save me, but all it took was one tragedy for me to remember…fairy tales don’t exist in real life.

*The content in this book discusses domestic violence and is suitable for readers over 18.*

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This was a very powerful book about two people going through two emotional events or trials. Daphne works in a bar and for the most part that is her only time to herself. She is in a verbal and physical a…

MELTING HIS ALASKAN HEARTREBECCA THOMAS

When Ethan Forrester’s hockey star brother begs him to take his place at a masquerade fundraiser due to illness, Ethan grudgingly agrees to help the cause. After all, he’ll be wearing a mask that covers the scar across his eye. No one will know his true identity. 

Sports journalist Carly Hughes will do whatever it takes to procure the interview no one else can get from the NHL Stanley cup winning captain. After a few drinks she confesses her need for an exclusive interview or she’ll be fired. Ethan knows his brother as well as he knows himself—spilling a few details should keep the man’s privacy intact—mostly. 

However, when their interview moves to the penthouse suite, Ethan tries to explain he’s not the Forrester brother she’s looking for, but Carly insists he keep his mask on. 
Daylight brings some harsh truths, and a serious hangover. Carly not only forgot to record her interview, but she wakes up with a stranger in her bed. Or was this case of …

SOLDIER OF LOVEALLIE BONIFACE

Franny Thompson has owned a bed and breakfast in Lindsey Point for the last five years, ever since a family tragedy left her broken. Running The Hideaway has been good therapy, but this thirty-year old doesn’t have the slightest idea about dating, fashion, or men. When a lonely soldier comes to town in need of a place to live, she offers him an empty room to rent, never dreaming he’s about to change her world.

Heath Garrick has spent the last 17 years as an active duty solider, but when he retires from the Army, he finds himself plagued by PTSD and no place to call home, until he moves to Lindsey Point and Franny offers him a room. Franny is quirky and naive, everything he’s never wanted in a woman – and everything he might just need.

As Franny and Heath find comfort in each other’s friendship, a powerful attraction develops. But when a national magazine chooses The Hideaway for a makeover, they are thrust into the spotlight. For Franny, it’s a dream come tr…

From award-winning fanfic phenomenon Sophie Jackson, the third novel in the sexy and emotionally intense blockbuster A Pound of Flesh series.

With Pat
Today the report from Baylor University was not good at all.  The head football coach will be let go which is good.  The athletic director is placed on probation and president of the university Kenneth Starr was moved down to Chancellor.  Which I think both of those people should have been let go as well.  Starr is also still a professor at the law school how ironic.  These are all because of sexual misconduct charges filed against the school.  Also, because the football staff would try to talk women out of filing charges and there also is allegations of retaliation against the females who did file charges.  You also have a title 19 charge against the University.  That they were told to fix in 2011, but did not until 2014.  When they did they did not provide her a staff or funds to operate her office accordingly.  This is the same football program that had an athlete tried and put in prison for 20 years on some charges, not all.  This is supposed to be a Christia…
