I hope you get hooked by this Snippet **** AND CHECK OUT THE NEW COVER !

Today’s hook

Choking back a chuckle, he nodded. “Would you be offended if I gave you some money?”
“Why?”
A look of confusion spread over his face. “Why what?”
“Why are you offering me money?”
As he rubbed his fingers over his forehead, he stepped closer. “Okay. Something’s just gone wrong here in this conversation.” He cleared his throat. “I was merely offering you a bit of cash, as you just said you were short on money.”
An awful guilt rushed over her. Even though she considered herself a kind person, it seemed she’d forgotten how it felt to be the recipient of kindness. When had that happened?
It was only a hesitant shake of her head, but it said more than words. “I know you mean well, but I can’t accept. Thanks for the offer, though.”
Leaning against the bench, he crossed one foot over the other, and his face showed a questioning frown. Sophie took in every little bit of him as he appeared tall and big in the kitchen. He was deliciously sexy and had an inherent captivating presence. The tousled blond hair seemed in need of a haircut, curling up around his ear. She stared at him, taking in his icy-blue eyes.
He broke the silence. “It wouldn’t make you a less strong person.”

BLURB:
The chance to start life all over with the help of a stranger.
Twenty-two-year-old Sophie Levesque has been guardian to her eight-year-old sister Mia since their mother’s death a few years ago, and it hasn’t been easy. Luck comes their way when they inherit a small house in Hobart. Problem is, though, they don’t know and have never heard of Clara Bellinger, the testator. Settling into their new life, Sophie is still afraid it’s all a mistake.
Mark O’Connor, attorney in Hobart and the bearer of the good news for Sophie and Mia, curses himself for the lack of information about the testator. However, researching the questions gives him an opportunity to see Sophie again, and the more time he spends with the two, the more he realises that his life is missing something. And it’s not his casual lover Linda.
But then there’s Zach, Sophie’s sexy neighbour from across the road… and a very good friend of Clara’s.
Will unravelling the mystery unravel Sophie and Mark’s promise of a future?

4 starsThe Romance Review – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

5star Review:
“I’ve always enjoyed Ms. Blobel’s novels, but I adored New Beginnings. This is a feel good story centered on love and hope, Sophie’s dedication to her younger sister, Mia, is incredible. The child is the center of her universe and there’s nothing she won’t do for her. Concerned the recent inheritance is all a mistake, Sophie wants to know more about the woman who gave them a home. Helping her is a drop-dead gorgeous attorney and the handsome, hunky neighbor. Sophie’s journey of discovery is a beautiful one, and when she gets her answers, she finds the last thing she ever thought she would–love. Looking forward to the next book in this excellent series.”

“Wow…what a tangled web we weave! Sophie has got it coming in all directions with the mystery of the testator. These are the type of stories that I love…since it has a bit of everything in it. Not only do we get a bit of a love triangle but add some mystery and thriller to it. Now, that makes a perfect book by Ms. Blobel! But let me remind you that this is nothing new since I find myself always wrapped up in this author’s writing since she writes with emotion and feelings. Whether it be anger, happiness, sadness – you name it…Ms. Blobel gives us the whole package in her stories!”

#NewRelease “Vested In Her” by @BrickleyJules

Vested In Her 
by Brickley Jules 

Small town biker princess Haven Mercedes Johnson wants to live a normal life, but she’s relentlessly protected by her father and his crazy right-hand man who will do anything to keep her under his thumb. With the help of an ex, Haven escapes the confines of the club, and after one last wild night, she eagerly sets off to start a new life. After being on the run for days, she’s taken under the wing of a kind woman named Ruby, and with her help, Haven disappears.

Riker Davis will do anything to earn a vest and become a member in Chrome Thunder, a prestigious motorcycle club. His chances are bleak until Haven, the club leader’s daughter, runs away. As a prospect, Riker is tasked to finding her, and he agrees, determined to do anything to earn a vest, including finding a woman who doesn’t want to be brought home.

Haven thinks she’s in the clear until Riker walks into the diner where she works, and her old life boomerangs back at her. Now she must choose, go back to her old life and give Riker what he wants, a vest in her father’s club, or give him up and keep the life she’s always dreamed of.

DEFYING RULES

This is the second book in the Fermosa Bay series, which, I’m trying to get onto the market as soon as possible.

DEFYING RULES is set along the Australian Great Ocean Road and tells the story of Ethan Tomlin, single dad, and manager of a hotel chain.

This is still a WIP, so critique away.

Thanks … and enjoy 🙂

Pain shot through Ethan when he gave a slow nod. “Yes, it will be,” he replied. “But remember, we talked about it. Jack’s at a good place, and Connor is now in the house. He’s not a bad bloke, either. Right? Emily is staying with him at the moment, too.”

When Nick didn’t reply, Ethan checked the mirror again to find his son staring out the window, most likely contemplating his father’s reply.

Half an hour later, they stopped in front of Jack’s house. Ethan hadn’t even switched off the engine completely when he saw Emily rushing from the house towards them. He heard Nick unbuckling and opening the car door just as quickly and within only a few seconds, his son was in Emily’s embrace. Taking a deep breath, he gave his legs a little shake after the long drive, and got out. Connor and Niall were outside as well now, so he stepped towards them. Niall looked as bad as Ethan felt, his freckles darker than usual on his pale skin. He gave him a hug and tapped him gently on the back. Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed Connor was struggling with emotions, too. He stepped back and slapped him on his back as well. All four of them had been friends since childhood, each coping with different life challenges along the way, yet they’d never lost their friendship.

“How are you holding up?” he asked Connor.

With a lift of his shoulder, he let Ethan know that he wasn’t sure, yet. It must’ve been hard for Connor losing his father after only meeting him again a few weeks earlier.

Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Today’s hook

His laughter echoed in the spacious kitchen. “I think there’s a little coffee shop down the street. I still have half an hour before my next meeting.”

Sophie sat down and gently tugged Mia onto her lap. She kissed her sister’s forehead, took a deep breath, and met Mark’s eyes. “There’s no spare cash in the budget for little luxuries like that,” she replied with as much confidence as her voice let her. There was no need to go into details that she’d had to spend most of the money for the rent she’d owed. Mrs. Karovic, her landlady in Sydney, had made sure to squeeze every last little penny out of her, and the next payment from Social Services wasn’t due until the end of the week.

“This one is on me,” he said. “The will’s only covering the bills. Will you be eligible for social assistance?”

She gave a slow nod, remembering the day she’d rung Social Service to inform them of their possible move. It had taken a whole hour to get through to someone. Thankfully, the person had been more than helpful and told her that all she had to do was to visit the office in Hobart, and her benefits would continue as always. In a naïve way, she hadn’t worried so much about receiving the money. For her, the most important aspect was for Mia to have her own bed tonight. A bed and not just a mattress on the floor. And so would she. As well as their own kitchen and their own bathroom, which they didn’t have to share.

“Sophie?”

She hauled herself back from her thoughts. “I’m sorry. I was daydreaming.”

Choking back a chuckle, he nodded. “Would you be offended if I gave you some money?”

Quail City’s super heroes Dark Master and Calypso aka as multi-billionaire Noah Adams and his assistant Vanessa London know Amy’s secret, and also know that she is being set up. Having spent months in a flirtmance with Amy, they are tired of waiting and want both her and Artemis in their bed. 
Hinderer wants to hold technology hostage, but in order to do that he needs Artemis’ assistance, and he will use any methods necessary to gain her cooperation.

Excerpt:
“People have been mentioning Artemis,” Calypso said. “You wouldn’t have heard anything?”
They knew, Amy thought. Somehow they knew. “No, Artemis isn’t here anymore. At least from what I heard.”
“Damn shame, too,” complained one of the customers in the shop. “Not the Artemis that is playing with the lights and stuff. But the Artemis who liked to help people with their problems.”
“Yeah, I think if someone is behind it, it’s someone pretending to be Artemis, or trying to shift the blame on her,” said another customer. “She may have done some things, but she’d never deliberately set out to get people hurt.”
Amy smiled at the person that made the comment. “I’ve been here all day. But it’s more than the traffic lights. Didn’t I hear that the other day the Financial District was shut down because the money showed at zero?”
“That is something that Artemis had fun with,” Dark Master commented. “Or had in the past.”
“I’m sure that whatever has been happening in Quail City has nothing to do with Artemis,” Amy replied.
“Hope for Artemis’ sake it’s true,” Calypso said. “Williams is ranting and raving in Commissioner James’ office asking for her to be arrested.”
Just bet he is, thought Amy. “Is there anything else I can get you?” Amy asked them. She saw that it was almost six and the last bus going towards her apartment would be there any minute.
“You in our bed,” Calypso said in her ear. “Your blue hair will look glorious on our pillows.” Then out loud stated, “That’s all for now.”

“Yes,” he whispered. “I thought she would. They’d been close, right to the very end.”

Connor was silent.

“She’s with you?” Ethan asked.

“Yes. Niall’s here as well.”

“Give me twenty minutes and I’ll join you as well.”

As soon as he turned off the phone, a little moan from the back told him that Nick was stirring and waking up soon.

“We’re almost home, mate,” he said.

Rubbing the sleep out of his eyes, Nick sat up and looked out of the window to figure out where they were.

“We’re heading straight to—” Ethan paused, noticing he was going to say Jack. “Connor. Auntie Emily and Niall are there. Are you hungry?”

The boy shook his head. It worried Ethan, because his son hadn’t eaten anything decent for the whole day. He looked into the rear-view mirror and saw Nick looking up to the ceiling, possibly throwing around all the questions he had regarding Jack’s death again. It’d been something they’d discussed a lot while driving along the roads in New Zealand and hard for Ethan to explain what cancer was and why Jack had cancer in the first place. Or explaining what death was and what happened afterwards. Where would people go? There were moments when Ethan had wished for a second parent to share the task of clarifying the unknown, but he’d got through it. It helped Nick to know that Jack was now with Ethan’s parents. Somewhere, wherever the place was where dead people went after leaving.

“Dad?”

“Yes, mate.”

“It’s going to be weird going to Grandpa Jack’s without him being there.”
