THE FAITHFUL SERIES
WHAT DOESN’T KILL YOU………….
“I don’t have anything to give a good woman, Laura.”
Jake Beckett is a man frozen in the loss and grief of the past – a man who accepts that the existence that he has is the penance that he must pay.
“My faith died a long time ago, Jake.”
Laura Howard is a woman also mired in the past – a woman who has battled the monsters, but who fears that she may have lost the war.
Two strangers struggling to fight their way out of invisible chains, they must travel together toward safety, freedom and peace.
Faithful, Tennessee is the destination. For both of them, maybe, finally, a home, a sanctuary, a place where they each can find peace.
And in each other, maybe they can find passion, laughter, acceptance.
But the past always follows and evil can find the best concealed path.
And sometimes, the only way out is through.
HOME WAS WHERE THEIR HEARTS WERE….
Decorated Marine and former FBI agent Sam Beckett is going home.
Home to the place he couldn’t wait to leave.
Home to the town that nowhere else in the world could replace.
Home to the people that matter.
Home to the girl that he could never forget and to the battle he would face to win back the woman that she had become.
And home to a predator who waits to take the things that Sam cherishes.
Delilah Prescott had a perfect house.
She had spent a lot of time and effort and blood and tears to make it that way.
If she lived and ate and slept alone in that house, well, loneliness didn’t give you scars.
At least not like the ones that fists gave you.
And if she didn’t remember how to laugh or love, again, this was the price she was willing to pay.
But Sam was back.
And suddenly that price seemed too high, and her perfect little house seemed like a perfect little prison.
And while Sam and Delilah tear each other’s bodies up with passion while trying to fix each other’s hearts, the predator is watching.
Sometimes the fairy tales are true. The woods aren’t always safe.
TAKING BACK HER LIFE WAS THE EASY PART. LEARNING TO LIVE WITH THE SCARS WAS NOT.
When she was twelve years old, they took her childhood and made her a wife.
When she was thirty-four, she crawled to her freedom. In Faithful, Tennessee she found refuge, safety, and family.
Esther Howard spent the next two years clawing and scratching through her nightmares to take her life back.
For those two years, he was there – a quiet, solid presence that never failed her—even when she pushed him away.
HE MADE HIS UNEASY PEACE WITH WHAT HE HAD.
John Valentine’s life had been little bits of heaven and huge chunks of hell. Now he focused on his sons and the land and tried hard to curb the need to be more to a woman who did not want more of him.
Until the day he discovered that she did.
THE LEADER WOULD RECLAIM WHAT BELONGED TO HIM.
Eli Babylon had led the Brotherhood of The Father. He was the rightful Leader, and The Wife was his. He had earned her, and he would have her.
The reckoning was coming.
A Titan World
EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT UNDERWATER
Clinical researcher Rebecca Shaughnessy’s life has always been planned, ordered, controlled, logical. She isn’t a damsel and she doesn’t need a hero. What she needs is a decent day planner and some really good ice cream. And to stop looking at the hot new therapist’s backside.
Ex- Army Ranger Max Lawrence has had his course plotted, focused, laid in. He isn’t looking to be anyone’s hero, even if he does appreciate the trusty steed and the mighty sword stories. But thoughts of ripping his new colleague’s bodice are keeping him up nights. Unfortunately, his current closest relationship is with his dog, and the mutt is getting more action from this infuriating redhead than he is.
In every good fairytale there are dragons and monsters. The dragon in this tale may be their fiery attraction but the monster won’t remain in the past where he belongs. When the monster resurfaces, this damsel and her knight must brave the currents and fight to keep from going under.
