#SnippetSunday “Breathe easy, don’t panic…” #love #Sundayblog #freeread


Happy Sunday. I’m continuing with my WIP, another Alinta Bay story. Jonah and Maddie are still stuck in the lift.
Enjoy ♥

There was a moment of silence before the static voice replied, “No Jack here, Maddie. Are you sure he works with us?”
Jonah wasn’t able to hold back his laugh at her referral to the same movie again, and Maddie shook her head with some amusement as well.
“Never mind.” There was some resignation in her words, but she still had a smile on her lips.
“Guys, I’ll switch off, but as soon as I have an update I’ll let you know. Breathe easy, don’t panic, we’ll get you out of there soon.”
Jonah nodded, rubbed his hands over his face. He was fine. He was used to confined space, after all as a diver he did that all the time, yet he was also aware how quickly people could change in stress situations.
Maddie pulled out her phone again, holding it up.
“No signal?”
She shook her head and slid down into a sitting position again.
And so did he. “So Mandinka. Named after the eighties hit?”

I do appreciate each single one of them!

#MFRWHooks “…and the hair, good Lord, the hair—” #NewRelease #MFRWOrg #OneClick #mustread

Happy Wednesday everyone.
BETWEEN GOODBYE AND HELLO is the 3rd and last book in
the Alinta Bay series
The ebook available on AMAZON for 99c .
If you’re a KU subscriber, please take a moment to check out the first two books in the series: “DEFYING RULES” and “TELL IT TO MY HEART”

Today’s Hook:

Harrison Hendrix stared towards the bus, the fresh late winter breeze off the ocean cooling the sweat on his back from the jog with his cousin, Logan, and his half-brother, Noah, the fine beach sand sticking to his legs. He wiped his forehead with the back of his hand, unable to comprehend. Finally, he blinked a couple of times as his brain caught up to what he was seeing: Melody was back in town. What the hell was she doing in Alinta Bay, and why on earth had she returned after all this time?
“What’s up, mate?”
Still in disbelieve, he turned to Logan. “I think I’ve just seen a ghost. At least I hope so.”
Noah placed a hand on Harrison’s shoulder. “Say what?”
With his hands on his hips, Harrison nodded towards the bus stop.
Logan shaded his eyes with his hand. “Is that Melody? Did you know she was back?”
“Last I heard from her was in January when she called and asked for Mum’s bank details to transfer some money that she owed.”
Noah scratched his chin. “Who’s Melody?”
Harrison looked around, realising that his half-brother had no idea who he was talking about. “Melody used to work for Mum in the bakery. She’s about the weirdest person ever. Dresses oddly, listens to the sixties music, and the hair, good Lord, the hair—”

BLURB:

Can two seemingly incompatible people who judge each other on past events be able to find some common ground?

Harrison Hendrix believes in second chances, but when it comes to Melody, he has every reason to doubt it’s possible. He’s conflicted when he sees her back in town and tries his best to see the change in her that other friends mention. Even more so when spending a night with her after being set up for a dinner date.

Life hasn’t been kind to Melody Foster, and she returns to Alinta Bay for a new beginning. Hit by tragedy again, she’s determined to live life to the fullest and with no regrets. She creates a bucket list … on which #8 the very difficult, yet extremely sexy Harrison has been included. Why does it seem he’s always around when she’s in trouble?

Maybe it’s time to take a risk and leave the past where it belongs, but will trusting their instinct be the right choice for them?

 “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.

#SnippetSunday “Never been big on exercises.” #love #Sundayblog #freeread


Happy Sunday. I’ve moved on from my Tassie story and would like to introduce you to yet another Alinta Bay couple. Jonah and Maddie, who are still stuck in the lift.
Enjoy ♥

Jonah gave her a wink. “Let’s tackle the task together.”
A smile spread across her flushed face. They both stepped to the doors, trying to grip the doors on each side as best as possible.
“Okay,” he said. “One, two, three.”
Both put some effort in pulling the doors apart but to no avail. Placing his hands on his knees, he took a few breaths to steady himself as he watched Maddie slide along the wall into a sitting position.
“You okay?”
She nodded. “Never been big on exercises.”
Letting out a soft laugh, he turned to the panel. “Mate, you’re still there.”
“Wouldn’t dare to leave you.”
“No luck on the doors I’m afraid.”
Again, the connection was iffy with static and only broken words coming through, but Jonah got the gist of it.
“I’ve sent a team over. They should be there in fifteen minutes. Will you two be okay?”
“Could you please send Jack? I’m sure he is able to get us out of here.” Maddie asked as she rose back to her feet.

#MFRWHooks “Not much time.” #amreading #NewRelease #MFRWOrg #OneClick

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I’d like to introduce you to book 2 in the Alinta Bay series
TELL IT TO MY HEART
which is now available on AMAZON for 99c .
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”, which is in Noah’s POV.

Today’s Hook:

“Isn’t she in France?”
“Not anymore, it seems.”
“Shit.”
Graham choked back a snort. “Not the word I’d use, but I agree.”
Noah ignored the subtle chide. “Is that something you’ll work on?”
“Yes.”
Noah hesitated, not sure what else to say. “Okay. I’ll see you soon.” He hung up and snatched a piece of paper from his desk to jot down all the things he had to do in the next twenty-four hours.
Not much time.

BLURB:

Confronted with the choice to care for his friend’s family on the other side of the world or to return to Alinta Bay to be with his own newfound family, how will Noah choose?

Following the death of his grandmother, Noah Fielding returns to Alinta Bay and the first thing — or person — he finds is the next-door neighbour in his nan’s bathroom — naked no less. Still jetlagged, he doesn’t hit it off with Molly at first. Yet, over the next few weeks, as his past uncovers itself bit by bit, she becomes is anchor, his friend, and his lover.

Molly Reid had the world at her feet, happily married with a young son … until a tragic car accident took everything away from her. With her heart broken, she moves to Alinta Bay to escape the memories of the past. Her peaceful existence, however, is interrupted after a heavy storm floods her house and she temporarily moves into her recently deceased neighbour’s house next door.

When Noah’s friend and partner goes missing during a routine flight, Noah returns to Alaska to help, but will he come back for Molly?

Happy Sunday. I’ve moved on from my Tassie story and would like to introduce you to yet another Alinta Bay couple. Jonah and Maddie.
Enjoy ♥

“Not sure why he wouldn’t be, but, yes, he’s a fine specimen of an adult.”
“May I talk to him?”
Maddie turned to look at Jonah with raised brows. He hitched a shoulder in question as well, but moved closer to the panel again.
“I’m here.”
“Thanks. Could you try to open the doors?”
Jonah cocked a brow, but before he could reply, Maddie piped up, “You do know this is sexism, right? You could have asked me that too.”
Out of all people, he had to be stuck in a lift with a person who walked the path of political correctness. Yet, Jonah remained silent, he wouldn’t dare to step into that conversation. Instead, he moved his hand to point at the doors. “Be my guest.”
There was some static noise from the panel. “Maddie, it has nothing to do with sexism but with the fact that I needed to talk to Jonah as well. It’s not just about finding out what can be done but also what your state of mind is.”
She blew out a massive sigh and slouched her shoulders. “I know you’re right and I do apologise. I just feel so helpless.”
Jonah gave her a wink. “Let’s tackle the task together.”

#MFRWHooks “Does my mother know?” #amreading #NewRelease #MFRWOrg #OneClick

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I’d like to introduce you to book 2 in the Alinta Bay series
TELL IT TO MY HEART
which is now available on AMAZON for 99c .
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”, which is in Noah’s POV.

Today’s Hook:

“Fu… Sorry, buddy. You know it’ll take you close to a week to get there this time of the year.”
He chuckled. Yes, he was aware of it. “It’s not that bad. I will need you to fly me to Anchorage and I’ll hitch a flight from there.”
“Shit. Let me check the weather forecast, and I’ll get back to you.”
“Thank you, mate. I owe you.”
“Hey, and I’m sorry about your grandma.”
“Thanks, Dean. It’s important for me to be at the funeral. She was the one who took care of me after Mum left.”
A heavy silence hung between them for a long beat until his friend picked up the conversation again. “No problems, buddy. We’ll make it work.”
“Thanks. I really appreciate it.”
He hung up, checked the weather as well, and hoped he was going to be on his way home the next day. A thought popped into his mind, and he reached for his phone again. Graham answered almost straight away.
“Sorry Graham, I’m not really sure about the time difference, but I have a quick question.”
“Shoot.”
The short answer made Noah believe it must have been some ungodly hour in Australia. “Does my mother know?”
Graham blew out a breath. “No. I’m sorry, but I haven’t tracked her down, yet.”
That surprised him. After all, the lawyer had been able to track him down in Alaska. “Isn’t she in France?”

BLURB:

Confronted with the choice to care for his friend’s family on the other side of the world or to return to Alinta Bay to be with his own newfound family, how will Noah choose?
