Today’s Snippet

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.

 

 

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.

Today’s Snippet

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.”

“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?”

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.

Today’s Snippet

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.

TELL IT TO MY HEART

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?

 

BETWEEN GOODBYE AND HELLO

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?

Happy Wednesday everyone.
This is my latest release
DEFYING RULES
which was released on 17 March 2020.
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”.

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?”
