Synopsis
Sebastian
A chance meeting. A stumble, a trip, two paths crossed, and my life would never be the same again. Chance would have us meet once, fate twice, but when she’s there for a third time I can’t ignore the attraction any longer.
It doesn’t matter to me that a member of The Royal Family should have certain standards, fit certain stereotypes, even if it matters to other people. They could think she’s not good enough, that she doesn’t fit the mold but she has all the qualities I was looking for, I know she’s the one. Her life is in danger because of me, and I’m the only one willing to protect her.
Payton
Event planning is my life, my dream, my passion, but there’s a dark side to me the rest of the world doesn’t see. A side that the sexy as sin Sebastian calls to.
It was supposed to be one night. One night where I could let all the stresses go and give him complete control. But one night didn’t stay that way and now I’m in the spotlight in more than one way.
Was this all a big mistake? Should I have stayed away, stayed safe, or will Sebastian give me more than just a good time?

JOCK REIGN by Sara Ney

Release Date: September 30


IT’S NOT EASY LIVING IN YOUR BROTHERS SHADOW.

 

Jack Dryden-Jones is easily the worst rugby player on the field—when he moves to The States to follow in his brothers footsteps, he has no idea how he’d hate the game. He’s so horrible he considers faking an injury to take himself out of the game. 

Jack is a quick-witted, comic book loving gentleman—not an athlete. 

 

DO NOT DATE YOUR ROOMMATES CRUSH.

 

When her roommate brings home a random stranger, Eliza is shocked when he makes himself at home; he’s strapping, strong and watching a movie at the end of her couch as if he belongs there.

 

It makes her uncomfortable in the best way possible.

 

But if there is one thing she believes in, it’s GIRL CODE: No girl may date her friend’s ex, past crush, or guys who have humiliated/used her. And she most certainly may not date any guy her friend currently fancies… 

 

DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.

 

Jack and Eliza are two of the good ones—it’s going to take a miracle to keep them apart.

Paint Me Fearless
(Shady Gully #1)
By Hallie Lee
Contemporary, Christian Fiction
Paperback, ebook & audiobook, 322 Pages
January 6, 2021 by WordCrafts Press

It’s the spring before high school, and Desiree (Desi) and Robin have little in common.

Robin has lived in the small town of Shady Gully, Louisiana her whole life, while Desi comes from the big city of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Robin’s family is devout, reserved, and dedicated to church. Desi has never been to church, her parents are divorced, and her mom, Sunny, is as flamboyant as they come.

When Desi is introduced in class, Robin hates her on sight. But fate draws these two alienated girls to one another, and an alliance born of necessity soon evolves into an affection that endures. Together they become a force strong enough to overcome mean girls, weight hang-ups, and disturbing family dynamics.

As their paths diverge and they raise families of their own, rumors of a shocking betrayal ignite old insecurities, and the three-strand cord of their friendship begins to unravel.

Just when it seems they have lost everything, the truth brings them full circle … to Desi’s long buried trauma, and to Robin’s obsessive quest for perfection.

In their brokenness they come to realize there is only one true way to fill the emptiness inside, to quiet the lies, and to ultimately become… fearless.

About the Author



Born and raised in Louisiana, most of Hallie Lee’s screenplays and novels are set in the south. Inspired by a landscape rich with cantankerous, salt of the earth folks, Hallie’s characters tend to be dramatic, but kind, and quirky, but smarter than they appear.

A move to the creative community of Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2005 gave her the opportunity to take up screenwriting. As her screenplays were recognized with awards and placements in various contests, she had the opportunity to learn from award winning talents like Kirk Ellis (The John Adams miniseries) and Ronnie Clemmer (A League of Their Own).

But alas, her heart is southern, and when she and her family made another move to Kentucky, it renewed her passion for writing novels. And southern story telling.

Paint Me Fearless is the first in The Shady Gully Series, a series which promises thought provoking, relatable journeys whose cast of characters tend to be ornery, but loveable.

It’s women’s literature. It’s book club fiction. It’s faith based. It’s Hallie Lee.

(Desi)

That night, long after Mr. Tom had gone to bed, I heard Sunny coming down the hall to my bedroom. I didn’t hear her, per se. I heard the clinks of the ice in her glass. Winston’s tiny tail thumped under the covers beside me.

“Hey, kitten, you asleep?”

I smiled in the dark. “No, I’m too excited about the bonfire.”

Mama laughed in that deep-throated way I loved. It was her really-happy-in-a-Sunny-kind-of-way laugh. “It’s going to be special for you. We’re going to make it a bonfire that kids will talk about for years to come.”

She sat on the edge of my bed, and I reached for her hand. As always, it was there. 

“I thought we could put lights in the trees, make like a little canopy,” she said. “We could do blue and white lights. Would that be good?”

I sat up in the dark and leaned against my pillow. “That would be the best! I’m so excited. I’m so happy, Mama.” The moonlight shone through the curtains just enough for me to see the blond curls falling around her ears.

She squeezed my hand. “Good. I want you to always be happy. You’re so special, Desi. I know great things are going to happen for you.”

The way she said it, with such certainty and conviction, I almost believed she could make it happen through sheer will.

Bastard son of a viscount and king of London’s sordid streets, Tobias Streeter has spent a lifetime building his empire, and he needs the Duchess Society to find a suitable wife.

Excerpt

Copyright 2021 Kate Carley

“Beck, I’ve heard so many great things about you. It’s nice to finally meet you.” “People been talking?” Beck chuckled again, but he was studying her face, assessing her with those stunning eyes. “My grandfather, Win Ross. I’m Grace Holland, and he left instructions that I should reach out to you. That you would have something for me.” Beck tilted his head a bit to the left, a tender expression passing over his face. “Gracie Jane. I figured you’d be stopping by here at some point. I was sorry to hear about Win’s passing. Everyone in town loved him. And I felt blessed to call him my friend. God, I miss him every day.” “Thanks for saying that, Beck. I miss him, too. And it’s just Grace now. I think my granddad was the only one still calling me Gracie Jane.” “He did.” Beck nodded. “He talked about his granddaughter all the time. He was so proud of you and how you started that company of your own.” As he spoke about her granddad, Beck’s eyes softened and his voice warmed. Talking about the most important man in her life with someone she’d just met felt bittersweet. But according to her granddad, Beck was one of his dearest friends. “I remember how proud he was when I told him about my new business venture.” “A website design business. What’s it called again?” “Holland Designs.” “Right.” He bobbed his head. “Win said you had more work than you could do in a lifetime.” “That sounds about right.” “I’m sorry I didn’t make it to the memorial. I searched for information but never found anything.” Grace bit her lower lip and then shook her head. The memorial had been a point of contention between her and her mother. “There wasn’t one.” “Yeah, he always said he didn’t want anything like that, but I wondered if his family would have one anyway.” “No. My mom and I…We just wanted to do exactly what he wanted.” Grace’s mother had an entirely different interpretation of what Edwin Ross had wanted. “And his wish was to not have people standing around, staring at him.” Beck chuckled softly. “I remember Win saying that.” Several unpleasant tasks still remained to be accomplished today, and they dampened the joy Grace generally experienced reminiscing about her granddad. “My granddad left something here for me. Do you have that?” “Right.” Beck pointed toward the corner of the enormous hangar. “It’s in my office.” With quickened steps, Grace kept pace beside Beck. “This place wasn’t here before. I mean, when I used to live here, there was the airstrip, but there weren’t many hangars. Maybe two or three.” “It’s become a thing. Owning a plane. Faster than the ferry if you’re crossing Lake Michigan. Lots of people around the county can afford it. And none of the other towns in the area have an airstrip.” Stopping at the door to his office, Grace watched while Aaron walked to his desk and lifted a heavy-looking silver paperweight shaped like an airplane. He plucked a key from underneath and went to a tall wooden cabinet in the corner. With a twist of his wrist, he unlocked the door. From her position outside his office, she could see the small black safe. He entered a code, and the door swung opened. Shifting the contents around, he produced a manilla envelope. Then, Beck reversed his steps until he was standing in front of her again, presenting her with the envelope. The strained expression on his face was exactly how Grace’s heart felt in the moment. A deep ache—one of loneliness and sorrow—created by the loss of a precious soul. Slowly, she reached for the envelope. “Thank you, Beck. Thank you for keeping my granddad’s wishes safe for him. For me.” “Yeah, no problem.” Beck pinched his lips together and glanced around before meeting her eyes again. “So, are you ready for your tour?” “Tour? Now? No.” Grace shook her head, fighting a choking feeling at the back of her throat. A tour—wasting time, wandering around—wasn’t part of her plans for today. Not even for a few minutes. “No. I don’t need a tour. But thanks for this.” She lifted the envelope to indicated she had all she needed at the moment. Again, he tilted his head the slightest bit to the left and then gave a gruff grunt. “Suit yourself,” he said. Like a switch had been flipped, his tone turned dark and sarcastic, and Grace had no idea why. “See ya around, Gracie Jane.”
