Today’s Snippet


He stood and packed up. “I am not. You have a job and a house. It seems that’s enough to make you happy and make you laugh as well. “
“One can’t survive on laughter alone.”
Once he had everything inside the basket, he carried it to the car, moved to the driver’s side, and held the door open for Hannah. “You have the computer thingy. I’m sure it’ll direct you home.”
 She put on her socks and shoes before sliding behind the steering wheel. “What about you?”
He gave her a wink. “Don’t you worry about me. I’ll be fine.”
“I can’t just leave you out here in the middle of nowhere.”
 “Of course you can.” And without any warning he shut the door.
 Taken aback by his changed demeanour and what had happened the previous five minutes, she watched as he returned to the creek and back into the water. She shook her head at the fact that he hadn’t even bothered to take off his shoes. It was going to be so uncomfortable for him to walk back.
Walk back? What was he thinking? They were at least twenty kilometres away from Fermosa Bay. She blew out a breath, opened the door, and sauntered towards him, watching him as he tried to build a dam with the small creek rocks.

But when a blood smeared package shows up at the post office and it appears to be linked to a scheme that threatens Heidi Collinsworth’s historic home, the town takes on a sinister vibe.

The new guy in town, Adam Williams, is determined not to get involved in Sugar Mountain’s business. His last job in a big city planning office ruined his life, but Heidi needs his help.

With conflicting theories abound and tensions running high, it’s up to the ladies of the society to don disguises and go undercover. If they’re not careful, the town may fall to a wrecking ball, Heidi may fall for Adam, and the secret society will be exposed.

#MFRWHooks “She still needed her.” #MFRWAuthor #NewBeginnings #love #bookboast #Freebook

Happy Wednesday everyone.

I thought I’d go back to my first series “Beginnings“. Some of you might not know it, so hopefully you’ll enjoy it just as much as you enjoyed the “Alinta Bay” Stories

FREE on ~ Google Play ~ Kobo

Today’s Hook:

Mark took her hand. His was warm and soft. It gave her a sense of security, though she knew that after today she probably wouldn’t see him again. As she followed him to the door, she imagined having a man at her side. A man watching out and caring for her. Someone to brighten her day. Someone to wake up to in the morning after having touched her all night.

Her gaze wandered over to little Mia. Even though her sister was mature past her eight years, she still needed her. Not only in regard to the simple things in life like cooking, washing, or helping her with school work, but the love a little child needed to feel secure, and someone she could trust. As the only person in the girl’s life, Sophie had become a kind of security blanket for her sister, and Mia needed her more than Sophie needed a man. That meant there was no place for a man right now or in the near future. And she knew all too well that men didn’t stay around to help. They came to have fun and then left. Her own father had. Mia’s father had. And Tyler had done so as well.

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?


 “This blood-pumping novel will keep the reader hooked until the very end.” InD’tale Magazine

“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book and fall in love.” (5 star review)

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (5 star review)

4 stars – 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.

Today’s Snippet

She stopped at the edge of the water. “No way am I going in there.”
His laughter echoed slightly through the forest. “Of course, you will.”
She shook her head. “No. It’s freezing cold.”
 With a nod, he agreed. “That it is indeed. But you’ll get used to it.”
She shot him a glare. “It’s not whether I will or not, but that I don’t want to.”
“You did have fun as a kid.”
 She shrugged. “It’s different when you’re a child.”
“What is different?”
 “Everything.”
 He tilted his head with an expression of sincere curiosity. “Define everything.”
 She let out a soft huff. “You’re a big pain in the butt.”
 He let out a bark of laughter. “Why do you think that?”
“Why do I think what?”
“Why would you think I’m a pain in the butt?”
“Because of all your questions and pushing me to go to places I don’t want to go.”
He let go of her hand, an expression of sadness spreading across his face, then turned and walked towards the picnic blanket and slid into his socks and then his shoes.
“What are you doing?”
 “I’m taking you home.” His voice nothing more than a whisper. “I tried, but bottom line is, you’re stuck in your miserable life and holding onto it as if your life dependent on it.”
“I do not have a miserable life. Quite the opposite. I’ve just taken over a medical centre, I have a beautiful house just across the beach.”
He held up his finger in a circling motion “Whoopedoo.”
“Don’t be condescending.” she demanded.

Title: Love On the Winter Steppes
Author: Paris Wynters
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Love On the Winter Steppes:

Can a magical day at the Ice Festival melt this career-focused woman’s heart?

Marketing consultant Qara Whitaker loves her job, happily putting in endless hours and working through holidays. But when her grandmother asks that she accompany her on a birthday trip to Mongolia to visit their family, Qara can’t say no. Packing up her laptop, Qara boards the plane—never imagining that a shared cab ride with a stranger will change her life forever.

Hoping to push through writer’s block, author Benjamin Lacoy hops on a plane to Mongolia looking for inspiration. A chance meeting with a beautiful and intelligent woman whose smile ignites his heart leads to them playing tourists. Sparks fly and Ben is feeling far more than inspiration, yet each time he and Qara get close, she’s distracted by work.

Ben is torn; he likes Qara, but he always promised himself he’d never let work come before family and friends like his parents did. Opposites clearly attract, but can they learn to balance work with love in order to build a future together?

Today’s Hook:

The quiet mention of her name brought her back from her thoughts. She nodded, but hesitated when he reached for her hand. “Are you really sure this belongs to us now?”
“Yes, I am.”
“It’s just… it’s…” She shrugged and gazed at the house again. “But I honestly don’t know anybody who would leave us a house.”
As he scooped Mia into his arms, he replied, “I’m pretty sure.”
She frowned, and her heart contracted unbearably for a moment to weigh up the words he had just spoken. Pretty sure?

Happy New Year ♥
I’m continuing with my attempt to write something different.
Enjoy ♥ Let me know how you like it so far

Today’s Snippet

“Come on. Take off your shoes and socks.”
Pulling her forehead into a frown, she countered, “I’m not taking my shoes and socks off.”
He stepped in front of her. “Of course you are.”
As he sat he gently pulled her down along with him. “Come on. You’ll enjoy it.”
Rolling her eyes, she watched him as he slid out of his shoes as well as his bright pink socks, which sported lots of differently coloured butterflies. Why wasn’t she surprised? Even though still disapproving of the idea, she slipped out of her sneakers and socks as well and when he held out for her hand, she reached for it. Part of her was curious what he was going to do, the other part annoyed that she was here instead of having done her groceries and now reading a book. A book she liked, not the suggested one from the bookclub. Not necessarily a romance book, but something with a little bit of crime or mystery. She wasn’t big on romance, it reminded her how much she failed in her marriage with Dominik. He was a surgeon at a hospital in Melbourne, where she’d worked in the emergency department. The days they’d both been home at the same time had been rare and mostly spent with Dominik being with his friends going fishing and Hannah staying home catching up on housework. In the end they’d drifted apart, and when Dominik had wanted children, she she hadn’t been ready yet to give up her career. Or so she’d told herself.
Bigalow hauled her back to the present. “Come on Hannah,” he said as he dragged her along towards the creek. She tilted her head to look at him, his smile wide and contagious.
She stopped at the edge of the water. “No way am I going in there.”
