Today’s Snippet

Piper rushed to her car, got in, and took some deep breath to strangle the urge to throw up. Where had things gone wrong?

She closed her eyes, trying hard to visualise Darren’s face. But as soon as she did pain shot through her. The pain of betrayal. The pain of six years of marriage and him leaving her the worst possible way.

Letting out a big breath, she straightened her shoulders and reached for her phone. It took her a moment to find the number, and although not sure whether it was the right start, she had to start somewhere to sort this mess.

Harrison Hendrix answered on the third ring.

“Hi, this is Piper Elliot. I am your cousin Kristen’s neighbour and I’m desperate for some help.”

Today’s Hook:

She had the genes to become a pretty girl and she was heading that way with big steps. The stylish haircut, a slight touch of make-up to emphasise her grey-green eyes, and always dressed in the latest fashion to compliment her slim figure. And she did have her heart in the right place.

“You’ll meet her tomorrow when you drop me off at the school sports.”

Eyes wide, he turned to look at her. “I will?”

“Oh man, didn’t Sophie tell you?”

“Apparently not. Or she might have.” He scratched the back of his head. “I guess she probably left a note on my calendar.”

“You’ll take me, won’t you?”

He gave a small nod. “Yup.”

BLURB:

Zach Taylor, an escort in Sydney, living in Hobart, enlists the help of Natasha Peterson when his teenage friend, Mia, runs away. He soon finds out that the ‘dragon’ is really more of a kitten. And although Natasha, Mia’s teacher, is attracted to him as well, she has her own problems to deal with, not to mention her initial reaction to Zach’s occupation.

Will Zach’s job keep him from a chance to be with Natasha?

Life is good for teenager Mia Levesque. But when Darren Schuster shows up in Hobart, she knows something is up once Sophie and Mark cut their weekend away short and rush home in the middle of the night. When Sophie won’t answer Mia’s questions, emotions run high, and Zach confirms Darren’s identity to Mia. Disappointed, angry, and feeling alone, Mia runs away.

Will life settle back into a routine for Mia once she finds out about the stranger in her life?

New Beginnings have given the Levesque girls a new start in life, will More Beginnings be another chance 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.

Today’s Snippet

He looked down to his hands as he reached for a pen, moving it between his fingers. Apparently, the conversation must’ve reached a stage he was uncomfortable with.

Well, so was she.

“Your account was in both your names, legally he had the right to draw from it as much as he needed. As for the house, well, it was in his name alone…”

He didn’t finish the sentence but let her assume the rest.

Tears stinging behind her eyes, she stood. “When do I have to be out of the house?”

Raising from his chair as well, he replied, “I don’t have the details. That is a question for your husband or the real estate agent.”

She nodded and left. The need to get out of the building for some fresh air was so intense, she let go of all good manners like saying thanks or goodbye. She rushed out his door and through the entrance, no longer able to hold back the tears. She was going to be homeless. No way would she be able to find something decent with a part time job within such a short time.

Today’s Hook:

She nodded. “Yes. Her reply was that for most fourteen-year-old girls teachers seem like dragons. She still remembers her science teacher who gave her a hard time.” She paused for a moment. “She blames it on my hormones because she thinks,” Mia snorted and then continued with an exaggerated voice, “Miss Peterson is a really nice person.”

He chuckled, which earned him a momentary glare from Mia.

With a shrug of his left shoulder, he commented, “I s’pose she has a point.”

Rolling her eyes, she moved away from him again. “Too hot for sentiments like that.”

A smile tugged at his lips. She had come a long way from when he had first met her. That’d been six years earlier, and she’d been only eight. Eight years old with already enough character for three teenagers combined. But he’d liked her from the moment he’d met her. He had been helping the girls find some stuff in their attic when he had mistaken her for Sophie’s daughter. With hands on hips, she’d said to him, “Do I look like her daughter? I mean, seriously.”

BLURB:

Zach Taylor, an escort in Sydney, living in Hobart, enlists the help of Natasha Peterson when his teenage friend, Mia, runs away. He soon finds out that the ‘dragon’ is really more of a kitten. And although Natasha, Mia’s teacher, is attracted to him as well, she has her own problems to deal with, not to mention her initial reaction to Zach’s occupation.

#SnippetSunday “What do you mean the account is empty?” #freeread #Sundayblog #MFRWAuthor #amwriting


Happy Sunday. Time to move on to another story while I concentrate on the Bigalow story.
As mentioned before, it’s challenging and I want to get it right.
Let me introduce you to Piper, who is part of another Alinta Bay story.
Enjoy ♥

Today’s Snippet

Piper Elliott stared at her bank advisor, not comprehending his words. “What do you mean the account is empty?”

Mr Lee had been patiently explaining and replying to all her questions for the last half an hour, but it didn’t make sense to her. Again, she asked, “What do you mean the account is empty?”

Piper wasn’t sure whether his sigh was out of frustration or pity, but at the moment, she couldn’t care less, because the news that there was no money in her account and the house she’d lived in for the last five years with her husband had now been sold.

Mr Lee sat back into his chair, rested is elbows on the armrest and crossed his hands in front of his chest. “I’m sorry Piper, to say it bluntly, your estranged husband cleared the account, mortgaged the house, and placed it on the market.”

“But … how can he … I don’t understand, doesn’t he need my signature to do all this?”

Today’s Hook:

She lifted her shoulder in a slight shrug. “You know!”
Raising his brows, he replied, “Actually I don’t know! Isn’t she Sophie’s good friend?”
Another shrug. “Kind of, I suppose. They used to do the boxing stuff together, and since Soph’s carrying a baby, they go and enjoy coffee and cake instead every once in a while.”
Ignoring his chuckle, she went inside and helped herself to cold lemonade. She opened the can with a simple click as she returned outside and took a long sip. “Man, it’s hot.”
Zach pondered on that thought just like Mia, when she suddenly said, “You need to cut the grass, Zach.”
He almost spilled the drink. “Good grief, thanks, honey.”
There wasn’t much yard in front of Zach’s house. A flagstone path crossed the patch of lawn, and he’d kept the rest of the garden as low maintenance as possible. But he loved sitting on the front porch, watching the world go by.
He placed his arm around her and drew her in a bit closer. “Have you talked to Soph about your teacher?”
