Aleksandr Volynsky thinks he’s experienced the worst life can throw at him, until the most devastating loss leaves him questioning everything…
One year later, Alex and his daughter, Anya, are still picking up the pieces. In the process, he realizes how far apart their mutual grief has driven them and how lonely he has become—especially when the Buffalo Gladiators’ beautiful anthemist, Hannah Kent, finally introduces herself.
Anya Volynsky is a high-school senior with plans—her father’s plans—to become the first woman on a professional hockey team’s starting roster…
But Anya is toying with the idea of staying in Buffalo and caring for her father rather than accept a scholarship to play hockey at Boston College. Her decision becomes even more difficult when she meets her school’s new athletic trainer, Lucas Donovan. Their experience with similar losses draws them together, and soon their friendship blossoms into a forbidden love that neither of them expected.
With lives torn apart by sorrow, Alex and Anya try to restore their bond, but it’s not that easy…
Alex’s attraction to Hannah keeps growing stronger, and he needs to decide if he’s ready to overcome his pain—but also if he’s willing to do it without Anya’s approval. Anya, on the other hand, is headed for trouble, and while Alex tries to do the right thing in order to protect her, all he manages to do is push her further away.
Can Alex and Anya find the courage to pick up the broken pieces of their lives, or will the heartache of the past ruin their chances at finding happiness again?
I’m participating in this year’s blog hop to represent my nephew, who has autism spectrum disorder. Autism now affects 1 in 68 children, and boys are four times more likely to have it than girls. My nephew will be graduating from high school (at 16!) in June and off to Marymount University in the fall.
This year’s theme is animals, so let me introduce you to another success story–my basset hounds, Daisy and Rocky, who my husband and I adopted from Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue almost two years ago. They were rescued from a life of horrible neglect in Tennessee but have been properly spoiled since arriving at our door.
Older dogs are often overlooked as adoptees; I specifically wanted older dogs for this very reason. Daisy was seven at the time and Rocky five–not that they act their ages!
Thanks to RJ Scott for organizing this blog hop; be sure to visit her site as well as the other participating authors! And if you comment on this post, you will be entered to win an ebook copy of an anthology of your choice!
These five fairy tales feature LGBTQ characters, many of whom begin life in castles, yet make their way into the wild forests for love, truth, and a sense of themselves. This free anthology takes the classics and makes them ours.
White Deer by Jess Martin – Curses, shape-shifting, and shrimp fairies: welcome to Jenn’s version of Madame d’Aulnoy’s fairy tale where she gender-bends the cursed creation, takes liberty with the hero’s tale, and finds a princess who isn’t in a rush to get rescued.
Snow White by Christina Rosso – When Snow White’s father brings home Nadene, her new step-mother, the princess has doubts about the girl’s ability to be a queen and mother, but what Snow White never expects is to fall in love with her.
The Tree of Wisdom by Dale Cameron Lowry – A curse cast on Prince Florian makes love a dangerous enterprise. But when he meets animal whisperer Olvir, he falls willingly.
If Only You Were Someone Else by Jennifer Loring – A changeling is willing to risk everything to discover who and what s/he really is–especially when s/he falls for a human male.
Heaven Scent by Chantal Boudreau – A highly sensual retelling of Rapunzel from an insider’s perspective.
Coming Soon from Supposed Crimes.
To take the bad with the good has never been this tempting…
We all need it. We all crave it. The unexpected. The freedom of letting all your inhibitions go. It’s the thrill of being led to the edge, testing the limits, wondering if and when you’ll be pushed over. It’s the rush of the unknown. The bittersweet of tasting the forbidden when you know it’s undeniably bad for you. It consumes you, possesses you, and seduces you with its decadence, the desire for wickedly bad things.
Thirteen stories of sinfully seductive bad boys and scandalously wild bad girls—all ready to ignite your deepest desires by letting you experience the daring side of romance.
A blackmailing hacker. An infamous cage fighter. The Sergeant at Arms of a criminal MC. They’re breaking bad with shameless temptation…and they are downright irresistible.
Do you want to be taken to the edge? Do you ache for the thrill of experiencing how good bad can be?
Craving bad? Now’s your chance to indulge.
Coming May 23 from Limitless Publishing. Includes my new novelette “Paper Faces,” which takes place during the timeline of the first Firebird book.
There are certain things all writers need: inspiration, creativity, dedication, some measure of talent. But there’s one thing that’s perhaps more important than all these elements combined – one thing that’s guaranteed to help you become a productive, prolific writer. And that thing is a writing routine. Every writer who wants to achieve their goals must have a writing routine. Without a routine, it’s all too easy to fall into the trap of procrastination, or to disappoint yourself when your writing output isn’t where you want it to be. Without a routine, it’s hard to make writing a regular habit – and making it a habit is something you must do if you ever want to finish that novel! Like most things in life, there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution here. Every writer works differently and has different strengths and weaknesses…
Have the words ‘I’m not a real writer’ ever crossed your mind? Have you ever felt that your writing skills are inadequate, despite evidence to the contrary? Have you ever achieved success with your writing, only to think, ‘How did I get here/I don’t know what I’m doing/I don’t deserve this’? If any of the above rings true, you may be struggling with something called impostor syndrome. What is impostor syndrome? First identified by clinical psychologists Pauline Clance and Suzanne Imes in 1978, impostor syndrome refers to feelings of fraud and self-doubt experienced mainly by high-achieving individuals. These individuals are convinced that they are not really knowledgeable, skilled or talented in their area of expertise – that they have somehow fooled people, scammed their way to success, and will be exposed sooner or later as the fraud they really are.
Aithne is a warrior kidnapped from her homeland during a Viking invasion and forced to marry her captor. Shortly before the raid that claims his life, she becomes pregnant with a child whom she believes cursed. Spurred by the dark sorcery she learns from relics her late husband’s mother left behind—including a magic mirror—Aithne descends into a madness that threatens not only her child’s life but also the lives of everyone around her.
Exiled by her mother, Brenna is taken in by a clan of dwarves who treat her like their own. They soon learn that no one is immune to Aithne’s lunacy—not even the prince to whom Brenna was once betrothed. Brenna must face and conquer death itself if she is to save the land that rightfully belongs to her, and to break her mother’s terrible spell on the man she loves.
A story so dark, twisted, and unfinished has a way of driving the sanest to the brink of insanity.
Between the constant bullying from Heath and his friends and the unrest of not knowing what happened to her twin, Raven seeks revenge. Years later, she becomes the nanny for Heath’s young son, Kade. She helps him start a horror story with a plan to bring the horrible creature Kade created into the real world to torment Heath and his friends. When Kade’s creation no longer wishes to do Raven’s bidding, it becomes a life or death fight. The only way to survive is to figure out how to finish off the creature before she finds freedom. Will Kade discover a way to stop the creation of his malevolent mind? Or will Raven’s revenge consume them all?
Misty Harvey loves writing spine-tingling horror novels sure to thrill readers. The psychology behind such tales has always been a fascination for her since she was young, to the point that she once contemplated taking up psychology as a profession. Still, her love resides in the art of storytelling
Her favorite things to do when not writing are crafts, wrestling with her dog, avoiding her cat’s bite, and generally making her husband and daughter crazy. Oftentimes she can be found creating vivid tales with her daughter about whatever mundane thing happened in their day and turning it into a crazy story. She is also an avid gamer, crochet goddess (we shall pretend there), domestic queen, and animal tamer (it’s a work in progress).
