Addicted to You
Erin O'Reilly
 

 

Elin Prescot’s dream to be a top fashion designer is finally within her reach—then Marissa Banks enters her life. Snared by her first taste of passion, Elin is consumed by desire for more. Now, instead of pursuing her dreams, she chases the addiction that is Marissa. Her life spirals out of control until she meets Doctor Aimee Sullivan, who understands all too well what Elin is going through.

Can Elin let Aimee into her heart? Or will her addiction keep her enthralled with Marissa?

This story explores first love, intense passion, manipulation of emotions, and the gentleness of real love and true romance.

Priory McAllister has fought off boardroom sharks, handled high-pressure jobs, and thought she’d seen it all. Ready to live the suburban life she found her dream home and can’t wait to move in.

Unknown to Priory, the house is inhabited by two ghosts...Rhee and a mischievous Dylan, who call Priory's new house their home and have since 1935. They have no intention of leaving; after all, she couldn’t be harder to get rid of than the others who tried to encroach on their home.

Jacey Ryder, Priory’s long-suffering secretary has agreed to help her boss move…the things you do for your crush! Now, she gets to play referee between her boss and a bossy ghost, as each side try to lay claim to the house. What can she do when an unstoppable force, (her boss) meets an immovable object, (the ghost) besides hope for a peaceful solution? They are like two peas in a pod—two angry, stubborn peas in a pod.

Deuce
Jen Silver

When Jay Reid was in her twenties, she had it all. A professional tennis career, Charlotte, the love of her life and a new baby. It ended far too soon when Charlotte’s research vessel, RV Caspian, was lost at sea, leaving Jay to raise their child alone.


But Charlotte was, in fact, the sole survivor of the RV Caspian. Rescued by a local fisherman, with no memory of her life before, she lives on the Faroe Islands as Katrin Nielsen. Seeing a beached seal one day triggers her memory and slowly her other identity comes back to her. She returns to England to try to reclaim her life with Jay and their child.

Twenty-three years is a long time. Is the love they once shared strong enough to be rekindled or have too many years passed eroding all hope of a happy ever after?

An Author’s Tale – Samantha Hicks

 
 
The idea for After the Dark came to me in a flurry of thoughts and images as I walked to my local shop one night. I had the premise of one woman being abducted and then another and what their relationship would be like once they escaped. How would they fall in love? How would they overcome their trauma? The walk to the shop was about thirty minutes, there and back. By the time I had completed the journey the whole novel was set in my head and I couldn’t wait to get started on it.

The way in which I come up with stories feels very strange to me. I have never had to sit around for days and think of plot points or character development etc. The idea will come to me like a bolt of lightning and poof…the main characters are in my head and waiting for me to tell their story. To me it feels as if the story has already been written and I’m just tasked with copying it from the ether onto paper.

After the Dark came about like this and I’m thankful these two women got a chance at their happy ever after, especially with the horrendous start they had. For anyone still not sure whether to grab a copy, I’d highly recommend it. The story may seem dark and traumatic, but there are no graphic scenes of violence. Things are alluded to but never detailed. This is a love story, a romance, after all.

__________________________________________________________________

April Fools' Day, is one of the most light-hearted days of the year, but its origins are uncertain. Some see it as a celebration related to the turn of the seasons, while others believe it stems from the adoption of a new calendar.

Ancient Romans celebrated New Year's Day on or around April 1. In medieval times, much of Europe celebrated March 25, the Feast of Annunciation, as the beginning of the new year.

In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII ordered the new Gregorian Calendar to replace the old Julian Calendar. The new calendar called for New Year's Day to be celebrated Jan. 1. That year, France adopted the reformed calendar and shifted New Year's day to Jan. 1. According to a popular belief, many people either refused to accept the new date, or did not learn about it, and continued to celebrate New Year's Day on April 1. Other people began to make fun of these traditionalists, sending them on "fools' errands" or trying to trick them into believing something false. Eventually, the practice spread throughout Europe and became All Fools’ Day, or as we now call it, April Fools’ Day.
