#MFRWHooks “The day couldn’t get any worse.” #99c #amreading #preorder #MFRWAuthor

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

Today’s Hook:

As soon as Molly Reid woke, she sensed something wasn’t right, and yet, it took her three hits on the snooze button until she was anywhere near in charge of her faculties. Her gaze followed the thin light filtering through the small gap of the curtains. With a bit of effort, she reached over and pulled open the drapes a little more. The sun was just rising above the horizon. How much she disliked Mondays and, even worse, how much she hated the rain last night which had kept her awake for hours. It hadn’t been a gentle pitter-patter of rain but a downpour. Of course, she knew the rain was needed, but it could have been a little softer. She stretched, had another yawn, and swung her legs over the bed … when something cold hit her toes. Instinctively, she pulled her legs closer to her chest, a scream escaping her lips. Wide awake now, Molly leaned forward to check for the cause of the coldness. A shiver ran through her from her toes up to her cheeks. She threw herself back onto the bed, before letting out a loud groan and sat up again, taking in the destruction surrounding her. The day couldn’t get any worse.

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?

 “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 Hook:

Half an hour later, they stopped in front of his childhood home. Logan hadn’t even switched off the engine completely when he saw Kristen 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 his auntie’s embrace. Taking a deep breath, Logan gave his legs a little shake after the long drive and got out. Harrison and Graham had emerged from the house as well, and Logan walked towards them, his feet heavier with each step. His stomach clenched when he looked at his late father’s brother. Uncle Graham’s unusually pale skin emphasised the dark circles under his eyes even more. Logan’s heart broke for his uncle, knowing the pain he was going through. They embraced and patted each other gently on the back. He turned towards Harrison, his eyes filled with sadness, and Logan’s throat tightened at the emotions rushing through him. Appreciation filled him knowing that he wasn’t alone in this.
He’d always been close to them, and Harrison was more like a brother to him and Kristen than a cousin.
“How are you holding up?” Graham’s voice was barely above a whisper.
With a lift of his shoulder, he let Logan know that he wasn’t sure, yet. It must’ve been hard for him losing his brother at such a young age.
“How’s Mum?”
“She’s inside having a nap. The doctor’s given her some medication. My mum’s gone to the shop to get some bread,” Harrison explained.
Logan walked over to Kristen, placed his arm around her shoulder, and brushed her forehead with a kiss.
“How are you, pumpkin?”
She moved around to look at him, and a heaviness settled on his chest, seeing the signs of her struggles. Her eyes reflected her pain for everyone to see. He wiped a tear from her red face, which was also blotchy and swollen. Harrison hadn’t exaggerated when he’d told him she took it hard. He understood her pain. It broke his heart; he knew what she was going through.
She shook her head but didn’t speak. He gave her a moment, knowing only a few, if any words could describe what she was feeling.
Nick, still in her embrace, sobbed against her chest.
“Is he really dead?”

BLURB:

Sometimes one has to break rules in order to find happiness…

Widower Logan Hendrix is puzzled by the recent series of small crimes against his son’s new teacher. It’s a mystery to him, and he offers her his help. There’s an instant attraction, and Logan wants to take their parent/teacher relationship to a more personal level.

It doesn’t take Addison Ryker long to fall in love with Alinta Bay, the small town she’s moved to for her new teaching position at the local primary school. Her newfound haven is threatened, however, when her house is broken into and she is relying on the unbelievably stubborn but very sexy Logan for help. Although captivated by him, Addison worries her career could be compromised, because there are rules about dating a parent.

Happy Wednesday everyone.
This is my latest release
DEFYING RULES

Today’s Hook:

Somewhere, wherever the place was where dead people went after leaving.
“Dad?”
“Yes, mate?”
“It’s going to be weird going home without Grandpa being there.”
Pain shot through Logan. “Yes, it will be.” Blinking away threatening tears as the scenery sped past, he was aware of the gravity of his words. “But remember, we talked about it. Grandpa’s in a good place. And we still have Nan. She needs us, right? Harrison’s parents are staying with her at the moment, too.”
When Nick didn’t reply, Logan checked the mirror again to find his son staring out the window, most likely contemplating his father’s reply.

Today’s Hook:

The tears trickled down his cheeks now, his chest heaving as he cried silently. “Yes,” he commented on his cousin’s statement in a whisper, his voice almost breaking. “I thought she wouldn’t cope well. They’d always been close.”
Harrison was silent.
“Give me twenty minutes and I’ll meet you at Mum’s.”
“Sounds good. I’ll bring Kristen as well.”
As soon as he turned off the phone, a little moan from the back told him that Nick was stirring and waking.
Logan looked at the rear-view mirror. “We’re almost home, mate.”
Rubbing the sleep out of his eyes, Nick sat up and scanned the area out of the window, probably to figure out where they were.
“We’re heading straight to—” Logan broke off; he’d been going to say Grandpa.
“Nan. Auntie Kristen and Harrison will be there. Are you hungry?”
The boy shook his head. That worried Logan, because his son hadn’t eaten anything decent for the whole day. Out of the corner of his eye, he watched Nick in the mirror looking up towards the ceiling, possibly throwing around all the questions he had regarding his grandpa’s heart attack the previous year and his recent death. It’d been something they’d discussed a lot while driving along the roads in Tasmania and it’d been a challenge for Logan to explain how the heart worked and why Grandpa had suffered a heart attack in the first place, explaining what death was and what happened afterwards. Where would people go? There were moments when Logan had wished for a second parent to share the task of clarifying the unknown, but he got through it. It helped Nick to know that Grandpa was now with his mother and Logan’s grandparents. Somewhere, wherever the place was where dead people went after leaving.

Today’s Hook:

“Logan speaking.”
“It’s Harrison.”
Another quick glance to the back told him that Nick was still asleep. It had been hard telling his son the news regarding Jon, his father, the boy’s grandfather.
He blew out a breath, readying himself for the chat with his cousin. “How is everyone?”
There was a moment of silence before Harrison spoke. “Mum’s been at your place for the last two days to be with your mum. She’s struggling. Dad is, too.”
It didn’t surprise him. His father had been close to his brother, Uncle Graham, and his mother got along really well with Auntie Lisa, her sister-in-law.
Logan released the breath he had held as he turned the corner for another near perfect view over Alinta Bay. The sight took his breath every time.
He figured his mother was well taken care of, but what about his sister? She had taken her father’s death hard, like any daughter would, but the two had had a close bond, even closer since his heart attack. Logan worried about her. “How’s Kristen?”
“She’s stayed at my place the last couple of days. Not doing very well, either.”
Logan appreciated that Harrison had stepped in to help her cope. Fighting back the urge to shed a tear, he remembered the last couple of times he had cried. He’d shed a few the first time he’d held his son in his arms. Scared and excited over being a dad. But he’d cried bitterly when Kelly had died only a day later from post-operative complications. Nothing had prepared him for the loss and the void inside him. A widower already at only eighteen years. Yet, he was forced to get up every day to look after his son, care for him. His parents and his sister, Kristen, had been a great help, and little had he known, or dared to think, how wonderful fatherhood would turn out to be.

Today’s Hook:

Driving along, Logan watched the stormy clouds and focussed back onto the road as they emerged from a tunnel of trees and crossed the wooden one-lane bridge over the river delta. To the left side of the overpass two black swans glided through the water towards a handful of ducks resting on a sandbank. He considered waking Nick but decided they could come back to check on the animals another day. Ahead of him and a little to the side low shrubs covered the ground in front of the forest, and he knew that around the corner he would have a stunning view across the ocean. Born and raised in Alinta Bay, he considered it the best place to live and an even better place to raise his son.
Logan loved the view and never got enough of it. He loved the contrast of the blue ocean meeting the luscious green of the forest. The long winding road through gigantic trees was leading right into Alinta Bay. Nick usually struggled with travel sickness coming down this route, it was probably a blessing that he was asleep.
Startled by the ringing of the phone, he checked the ID and his heart sank, not ready, yet, for the conversation he was about to have.
“Logan speaking.”

Today’s Hook:

A smile tugged at Logan Hendrix’s lips when he saw his ten-year-old son Nicholas through the rear-view mirror in the back of the car. It must’ve been the most uncomfortable position, with his head leaning back against the booster seat, the neck bent into an awkward position. And yet, he envied Nick for his little snooze. It had been a bit of a rollercoaster twenty-four hours for them since receiving the bad news from home. Their drive into Hobart earlier in the morning as well as the almost one-hour-flight back to Melbourne had been draining on both — emotionally as well as physically.
They had spent ten days in Tasmania exploring the island in a motorhome. It’d been a great adventure, and Nick had loved the different scenery, the adventures, and even discovered his love for fishing.
