Excerpt

This was no longer home to a fearless girl who had more love for Olivia than she deserved. This would now become a place of nightmares for her daughter. Would she ever be able to sleep in this room again? Would she ever want to sleep alone? Would she ever feel safe?

Olivia struggled to come to terms with what Melanie’s life would be like if she survived this. She hadn’t done anything to deserve this. Alexander wasn’t without his faults, and neither was Olivia, but Melanie was so young, so pure, so innocent. Now, at far too young an age, she would be jaded by the cruelties of the world.

Would she ever see her smile again?

Would she ever hear her carefree laugh?

Would she ever feel her unconditional love as she flung her arms around her?

Bleakness invaded Olivia right down to her core as she fell onto Melanie’s unmade bed. Sheets that were once warm from her presence had grown cold, and Olivia could no longer keep it in. She wasn’t just watching a made-for-TV movie about a successful, semi-famous family losing their daughter. She was living the nightmare. wishing with everything she had that this would all be over soon, that it wasn’t real.

Wake up!” Olivia screamed, slapping her face as relentless tears streamed down her cheeks. She curled into a ball, the torment growing inside her becoming unbearable. It felt like someone was ripping her open with sadistic apathy, the pace languid and sluggish, taking pleasure from each strained breath she struggled to capture. Her skin prickled with the heat of a thousand branding irons. No matter how loud she screamed, it wouldn’t dull the pain.

Wake up, Olivia!” she bellowed again, louder and more desperate. Nothing worked. No matter what she did, no matter how loud her cries, nothing would wake her from this nightmare.

Sobs wracked through her body as she fought for air. She tried to gain control over her body and tears, but it was useless. She was no longer in command of her own destiny. Even the seemingly innate task of inhaling and exhaling had become arduous and complicated. Melanie was her lifeline, her reason for living. Without her, Olivia’s heart gave out, her lungs refused to work, her body shut down.

Suddenly, a pair of familiar, strong arms cradled her, lifting her off the torturous bed, cocooning her in a shelter only they could provide. They comforted her sobs, giving her exactly what she needed. She cried into her husband’s chest, a hundred tears falling for every regret. No words were spoken. Lowering himself to the floor, he simply held her in his lap, wiping her tears, providing her with warmth in this cold, hateful world.

She didn’t know how many minutes ticked by as he remained there, silently assuring her with his presence that they would get through this, that everything would work out. Still, she knew they would never be the same. This had shaken their family to its core. There was no returning to the way things were before.

Olivia cried harder.

She cried for all the time she should have spent with her daughter instead of working tirelessly for one charity or another. She cried for all the times she told her no when she should have said yes. Yes, we can have pancakes for dinner. Yes, we can go feed the ducks at the pond. Yes, we can make Christmas cookies in July. 

Exhaustion set in as her cries subsided and she closed her eyes. The last thing she saw before drifting off was Melanie standing alone in a dark room, a blank expression on her pale face.

For Love or Freedom by Lili Mahoney

Title: For Love or Freedom
Author: Lili Mahoney
Genre: Contemporary
Cover Designer: LJ Designs
Release Date: March 7, 2017 


In Tatum’s life, only two miracles have ever happened. And one of them was way too short and sweet, leaving her feeling angry and deserted. She’s accepted her hand though, knowing what gifts she’s been given because she spent her life paying for them. 


Tatum doesn’t want to burn bridges. That’s something her momma taught her not to do and going against those life lessons is hard to do. After all, family should be the most important thing in a person’s life. That doesn’t mean that making the sacrifices and enduring snide comments and nasty looks she gets from her so-called family makes attending their annual get-to-gathers worth it. Maybe those bridges shouldn’t be burned, but just maybe they need to be a little neglected, for the sake of self-preservation. 


Before she has the chance to commit to her plan of neglect, the decision is taken from her hands as she and her daughter Tulsie are stolen to Mexico, and held against their will. For her daughter, the world they now live in couldn’t have been better selected. But Tatum can’t let go of the life that she had been fighting so hard to hang onto.

Living with Nic could be like living in a fairy tale. He has the huge house. Stables full of pedigreed horses. Helicopters and beach houses. But Tatum has always known she will never have the happily ever after that comes with the fairy tale. It was ripped away from her years ago. Twice. 
Love isn’t always like a fairy tale though. And sometimes, happily ever afters are not done by the book. Especially where Nicandro Lobo is concerned. 

Lili Mahoney is the author of Young Adult Novel Barefoot Pastures. She was born and raised in Texas, where she went to Texas State University, and lives with her high school sweetheart and their three children. When she isn’t running kids from one activity to another, she’s feeding animals, doing laundry, and wishing she was writing or reading instead. Or eating ice cream.
