Secrets and Lies by Nancy Ann Rose

secretsandlies.jpgSometimes love is the best-kept secret of all. . .

When Neave Sinclair flees unjust prosecution, she happens upon rancher Jordan Chandler, a man short on words and long on intimidation.

A tragic accident has left Jordan emotionally scarred and hiding from a past he can’t escape. But a traumatic past isn’t the only thing he’s hiding.The raven-haired spitfire with a heart of gold ignites a spark of hope and he is drawn to her strength, compassion, and wisecracking wit, which masks a soul in torment and elicits his protective instincts.

Neave is a romance novelist who ironically doesn’t believe in love or happily ever after. She is no stranger to loss and senses a kindred spirit in Jordan. His loyalty and dogged determination fuel a need her guarded heart yearns to embrace. But falling in love is a dangerous game of chance when the unresolved issues of his past threaten their relationship.

Sometimes things don’t go as planned. And not all secrets are meant to be kept.

The Widow and the Rock Star by J. Thomas-Like

Rockstar - High ResolutionThe Widow and the Rock Star by J. Thomas-Like

Vivienne Stark, a writer and military widow, has spent almost two decades of her life avoiding having a life. When she writes a bestseller, she is thrust into the limelight she never wanted. To complicate matters, an embezzler has wiped out the charitable foundation she created to help the families of fallen soldiers. Will Foster, the lead singer of world famous band Static Neverland, considers himself to be a regular guy in the right place at the right time. Surrounded only by fame seekers and gold diggers, Will’s been hurt too many times to trust women. Little does he know, a chance introduction to Vivienne Stark will change his mind completely. A not-so-typical set up leads to two people finding the love they never knew waited for them. But can they maneuver through the past hurts and current challenges to make their relationship last?

A review or two:  “The Widow and the Rock Star” serves as a window into the raw and honest grit of grief and loss. The novel is about a woman, Vivien, who experiences overwhelming/crippling losses and how she learns to cope and move on. Though it is a “romance” the relationship between the main character, Vivien, and her best friend, Pepper, takes center stage in this novel. It is a beautiful look at the bonds of friendship and the power of “sisterhood” in the face of adversity. This is definitely an author to follow. 4 stars

I like the unique characters’ pairing and setup. Moreover, I find the point of view real enjoyable to read and more exciting. It’s like watching movie right up my mind. I get to follow every page through and find getting swamped with the story mainly because the story line is beautifully written.
Looking forward to another great story! 5 stars

The Braille Club by J. A. Kerr


BrailleClubeBook The Braille Club

Welcome to the Braille Club, where blindfolds are mandatory and members play sensual games of pleasurable endurance. Three couples take part in this exclusive, secret club for very different reasons…with very different results.
Benedict Harrison was a master of detachment…
Benedict’s first experience with the Braille Club changed his life forever when a mysterious woman reawakened his emotions and his passion. He encounters the darkly erotic Siena Waters again, and they begin a tumultuous affair and a business partnership, but what will happen if the true nature of their relationship is revealed?
Gabriella Ballantyne’s marriage is in trouble…
Her husband Max has grown cold, and Gabriella seeks out the Braille Club and its decadent delights in an effort to reawaken their hearts and strengthen their marriage. But when she presents him with his own membership card, she sees only revulsion in his eyes. Gabriella must use everything she’s learned from the club in a last-ditch effort to reconnect with Max and resurrect their love.
Abbey Marshall needs an escape from her cheating husband…
Abbey begins sensory lessons at the Braille Club, hoping it will help her regain control of Steve and prevent his straying. When the unthinkable happens, she is consumed with the need to learn the identity of Steve’s latest mistress. Left reeling and with her sanity in jeopardy, a chance visit from her husband’s former teammate might be her last chance to find the answers she needs.
At the Braille Club, the elite membership walks in the dark in order to find the light…they need to be blind before they can see. They’re ready—are you?
Amazon Review by Mr A J McKechnie
THE UNIQUE PREMISE AND THE 3D CHARACTER PROFILES KEPT ME HOOKED. It’s not often that I use the word ‘original’, but it’s merited in this case. Kerr has crafted a well-written story around a unique idea, and both the writing style and the execution deliver flawlessly.

Each chapter is preceded by a small informational briefing about the Braille Club, and this was invaluable to getting a feel for just how strange the circumstance is. The book reminded me in part of David Foster Wallace’s almost encyclopedic descriptions of people and places, going into minute detail. In as much as The Braille Club is a world, these descriptions helped to make it real for me.

Without ruining too much, The Braille Club is as much about sexual awakening as it is sexual re-awakening, with couples attending to rekindle their marriages, or trying to rediscover the passion they once felt for each other.

Not at all the kind of book I would normally pick up, but the unique premise and the 3D character profiles kept me hooked. Would thoroughly recommend to a lover of any genre.

Hi there!
AIbEiAIAAABDCI6-5JXbo9H4AyILdmNhcmRfcGhvdG8qKGQxZmJiYzkyMDEyMjdlZWNmZTJjMTkwNjVhNjhjM2QyNzQwYjBiYjUwAZbDOsqS4vkJt36Ec0wZwxT4v4lOWhen I set out to write these books, I wanted to create something that mirrored exactly the kind of books I like to read. My top picks are always originals featuring strong male and female protagonists with attitude. Benedict is detached and an enigma until he meets Siena. She turns his world upside down and he suddenly reconnects. I can’t tell you how many readers tell me how they were gripped by their story. How they loved the originality of the Braille Club, the other two stories running through the book and the mix of characters!
The Braille Club Series books are a great mix of genres. Although sensuality plays a big part, there is also intrigue and a touch of thriller.Overall, the Braille Club series is designed to keep you turning the pages – for those adventurous enough to try…
I’m a dreamer, writer and wine drinker and not always in that order. With the publication of my books, I realised my ultimate dream of becoming a writer. This has been a rollercoaster ride with lots of highs and lows but I love every second. My next adventure is into script writing where I hope to transform my book into a drama series. I love to connect. Be sure to drop by FB page or sign up to my mailing list for giveaways, secret chapters and upcoming events.

Anissa of Syria by Jonah Pierce

Anissa of Syria Final CoverAnissa is traumatized by the most brutal conflict of the 21st Century: the Syrian Civil War. In 2012, Islamists in Homs terrorize a Syrian-Christian community and destroy everything that a young woman holds dear. Narrowly escaping death, Anissa restarts her devastated life as a college student in New York City. She is bewildered and lost, but hopeful for a better life in a new land.

Anissa is soon drawn to two powerful individuals: Michael Kassab, the Syrian-American leader working to found the first Mideast Christian state, and Julien Morales, her Columbia University professor who runs a $20 billion hedge fund.

Complicating matters, Michael is still attached to his ex-girlfriend and Julien is the most sought after bachelor in Manhattan (and has hidden demons that even his therapist can’t extract). Anissa’s heart and her communal ties pull her in different directions, as she seeks hope and renewal in a dark world.

Anissa of Syria might be compared to The Kite Runner, Exodus, and The Diary of Anne Frank.

NOTE: This is a “clean read” edition of The Syrian Virgin (i.e., this version has no profanity and just a few, brief scenes of minimally described intimacy without reference to any explicit details or sexual anatomy). Due to war themes, this book is not recommended for readers under 16.

REVIEWS from Amazon:

#1 — What a amazing story that could be taken from present day headlines. A story of hope not only for a better life but maybe find love.
Anissa leaves her homeland Syria in search for freedom. Leaving what remained of her family was a hard choice for her, but in order to survive, she had to do it.
And on the way she also hopes she is finding love. She is torn between 2 men, who both could give her happiness. Again she has to make a choice. Who will she choose? I can’t wait to find out…
This is a must read for anyone that like a uplifting tale. Who will start off making you sad and at the end make you smile and believe that good things can happen to good people.
Jonah Pierce writes with so much passion. Taking a tragedy and turning it into hope and survival

#2 –A heart breaking inspiring story of someome so young having seen things no human should ever witness let alone someone of so little years on this earth.
This story I feel takes you through every emotion that is astoundingly indepth yet very easy to read.
The story starts of slowly then slowly builds and then a NOOOOOOOOOOO moment!
Its raw and gritty and really takes your breath away for most of the book.
This story helped me to remember and appreciate the life that I have. A life where I feel blessed after reading this heartfelt story.
Definitely a story that can easily be adapted to the big screen! Joanh Pierce. you are a genius!.

Jonah Pierce graduated from Harvard College, where he studied mostly literature, psychology, philosophy, and film. After college, his first job brought him to New York City, where he was working during the attacks of September 11 – an event that profoundly marked him and deepened his interest in global affairs and the Middle East. Almost fifteen years later, Jonah was moved by headlines about the tragedy in Syria and the threat of ISIS, and wondered how these developments might feel from the perspective of a Syrian refugee. He began to envision a young Syrian woman fleeing fear, violence, and tragic loss, and finding a new life in the United States. Thus was the character of Anissa Toma born, and The Love of Antioch series recounts her saga.
