MOVES

 

Mystery, Crime, Thriller

Date Published: 7/7/16



In the blink of an eye, Robert Jake’s perfect life became hell.

Jake, a radio talk show host with a pregnant wife, had the perfect life until, in a moment of “Patriotic Stupidity” he decided to stop talking for a living and start shooting to help his country.

Deployed to Iraq, he barely made it home alive, shot-up and full of shrapnel, after a fatal ambush.

Moves is a mixture of single parent meets thriller, action, and suspense in bucket loads. If you like intrigue, plots with twists and turns, a little bit of romance and a story that keeps you holding your breath until the very last page; read on. Moves is a chess game of a page turner, where each chapter keeps you trying to outguess the killer.

We encounter Robert Jakes story, and the stories of those around him, at several points as flashbacks and therapy start to fill in aspects of his past. Jakes suffers with memory loss, bouts of depression and anger caused through PTSD. During an ambush 18 soldiers under his command lost their lives. His wife having died of breast cancer forces him to be a single parent to Rose, his young daughter, whom he loves deeply. She has inherited a little of both her parents, mom’s DNA and his love for flying. He will do anything to protect her. Not understanding why, his life suddenly becomes complicated when the murders of the Dallas District Attorney and two innocent women seem to be connected to him. He gets help from a colleague to help join the dots as his life tumbles out of control.

Jakes life is now embroiled with murder attempts, not only on himself, but on the important people in his life. He has to dig in deep to keep himself balanced while trying to figure out, what the hell is going on.



About the Author

After many successful years in the broadcasting world, working as a sought-after radio personality, John Michaels was prompted into a writing career by a casual remark over a meal in a restaurant.

John’s former girlfriend gets credit for putting the writing bug in his head. They were having lunch and she was reading the first part of a memoir he had written. She reached over and stopped his fork midway between food and mouth and said, “This is terrific.” Five minutes later, she kept another fork from reaching its destination with, “You should write a novel. Make it a crime novel. It’ll be good.”

His first novel, ‘Moves’ was just that, a fast-moving thriller. However, it took him 12 years to finish, but he had really good excuses.

When he began to write, there were huge amounts of time when he had no time. Throat cancer surgery and subsequent radiation capped off with a subdural hematoma wiped out an entire year. Months were spent learning how to put a book together. Reading Steven King’s ‘On Writing’ helped.

John has had a love of the science fiction genre which he got into at the age of 10. He is following his passion for reading and taking it into writing, He is already working on his second novel which will be a sci-fi.

As a reader, his favorite Sci-Fi authors are Robert Heinlein, Philip K Dick, Issac Asimov, Carl Sagan, Arthur C Clarke, Ray Bradbury and a lot more.

Away from sci-fi, he loves Elizabeth Kolbert, Lee Child, Barry Eisler, Michael Connelly, John Sandford, Walter Isaacson and a hundred other talented women and men who offer you an escape into whatever world they have created.

In a time of emotional upheaval, change, and uncertainty, The House offers us a story of hope, with new and empowering perspectives. This two-part awakening journey speaks to the wounded child, left to believe they were anything less than pure magic, who lives within all of us.

As we learn how to open ourselves up to divine grace, to embrace our shadows, and see life’s challenges as opportunities for growth, only then can we gain the keys needed to free ourselves from our self-imposed prison of limiting beliefs.

By helping one go within ‘The House,’ to see all that has been stored, hidden, and cast aside there, one can discover their brilliant truth. By going within, we find what lies at the core of the human experience: compassion, forgiveness, and love.

In this pivotal time of restructuring on a global level, as we strive to create a New World, with a solid foundation based upon peace and harmony, we need to begin with ourselves first.

With joyful surrender, courage, and trust in the process, our vision that truly anything is possible will become clear.

SNEAK PEEKS:

TEMPTED by Carina Alyce

You are a professional,” ER Clerk Cassie Odon reminded herself, wheeling her computer through the MetroGen ER. The wee morning hours of Thursday night shifts in the minor care pod were supposed to be slow.

The triage nurse at the front door was having a ball because her triage reasons became more outlandish as the night wore on.

Seriously, why were Fabio and Glen sharing a room? And what did get checked out” mean? They couldnt be too sick if they were in the minor care pod and not one of the two standard care pods. At nineteen and twenty-eight years old, they shouldnt have been taking a ton of meds.

STD testing, perhaps?

No, the triage nursed have written personal concern w/testingon that.

Object in the butt? While everyone said they fell on it,it usually appeared as OITB.

Drunken sex accident? Ideally, they werent drunk. Drunk guys, regardless of their orientation, were obnoxious when she had to file their insurance.

She opened the door to Room 78 and understood triages note.

There sat two shirtless firefighters getting checked out.Even better, she recognized one of them, who had been similarly naked during their last conversation.

And he looked fabulous naked . . .

BRAVE ENOUGH TO LOVE by EmKay Connor

Complete and total silence settled over the jewelry store. Donald peered from behind the counter. Mr. and Mrs. Park huddled together, wide-eyed with terror. Mikey stared down his arm, past his gun, to the damp red stain spreading over one side of my shirt. I struggled to breathe, paralyzed by disbelief and shock.

Thirteen years on the job without more than a black eye, dislocated shoulder, and concussion. Now, I was shot.

Katie.

My thoughts flew to my wife, waiting for me in Dr. Hardings office, assuming the worst about my absence. If the building was being evacuated and she saw the S.W.A.T. ARV, would she try to check on me? Find out what was going on?

The thought of my wife learning I was one of the hostages and waiting to see if Id make it out alive made me want to vomit.

BLURB

I vowed never to return to my hometown and the people who live there. Now, unemployed and needing a place to live, I move back with my mom, promising myself that it’s only temporary.

When small-town charmer, Miles, thinks his charisma will work on me, he’s got another thing coming. I want nothing to do with him and what he represents in this town. He’s everything I ran from when I left and never looked back.

Miles is persistent in his pursuit, no matter how many times I turn him down. What could a guy like him want with a girl like me? We come from two different worlds—one where mine serves his.

But I need a job, and his family’s winery is the only place hiring. Working alongside him, I see a different side of him that I thought was nonexistent.

Hatred turns to curiosity, and soon I’m wondering if there’s more to the man I thought I knew growing up.

Ember Davis – Forever His Family



Title: Forever His Family
Series: Higgins Security #4
Author: Ember Davis
Genre: Contemporary Romance






BLURB 


SAVANNAH
I’m finally free of pain, torment and a future which was never going to be safe for me or my baby, but I’m not sure what life without my ex-husband will look like. I can’t help but worry. Getting away from him and divorcing him was easy. Too easy. Does this mean he has something planned for me? Am I only safe as long as I’m pregnant?

Going out to a bar to celebrate your divorce while pregnant doesn’t seem like a good idea, but I can’t deny my two besties who stood by me even when I pushed them away.

It turns out to be the best thing I’ve ever done. For the first time in a long time, I am in the right place at the right time. Meeting Duncan feels like it was meant to be. He says he’ll protect me. He says he wants my baby to be his as well. He holds me and doesn’t let me go but it doesn’t make me feel fear, only contentment.

I can’t help but keep looking over my shoulder. How long can this last? When will my past crash into my future and prove a happily ever after isn’t meant for broken people?

DUNCAN
If I’ve learned one thing watching my brothers in Higgins Security find the women meant for them it’s that we attract women who need our help. It’s a damn good thing I have no problem using the skills I gained as a Ranger, well tested and honed, to keep those I love safe. I won’t be making the same mistakes my brothers did, even it makes me obsessive and possessive to a level even the other men in the family can’t touch.

I was starting to lose hope, no matter how much it hurts to admit. I wasn’t expecting to find my future at a bar celebrating her divorce. I wasn’t expecting to find her pregnant with another man’s baby. I know blood doesn’t make a family and Savannah’s baby is mine the same way she is.

I will keep her safe, no matter what. I will be at her side through the last trimester of the pregnancy. I can’t wait to hold her, our, baby in my arms. I’ll prove to her she can trust me and then get her to give in to what I know she wants: me. Soon she’ll be in my bed and in my house; she’s already in my heart.

If her ex-husband tries to shatter our happiness, he will quickly learn the error of his ways. Even if he doesn’t pose a threat to us, Savannah and I have our own demons to fight, our own pasts to overcome, but we can do it together because she’s mine and I’ll always take care of her.



**18+. If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. It is a standalone and the fourth in the Higgins Security series, but it would be more enjoyable if you’re caught up with this Denver family.
Warning: This story may contain casual cannabis use, but not to worry, they live in a legalized state and are responsible members of society.**

The Wedding Agreement

TEASER BLAST

THE WEDDING AGREEMENT by Annie Dyer is coming Sept 23!

#PreOrderHere:

mybook.to/WeddingAgreement

Her heart is not up for negotiation… Noah Soames needed to get married, only there was one small problem – he didn’t have a suitable contender to be his wife. Until a few glasses of red wine later, and I’d volunteered for the position. He was charming, wealthy and panty-melting gorgeous, which meant that this small favour should be no problem. Shouldn’t it? A twelve-month deal and we’d separate as friends, nothing messy, no tangled emotions and definitely no difficult divorce settlements. I could find out if married life was better than my single, career-focused one, and see if I was really missing out, and at the same time put an end to the horrendous blind dates my friends kept setting me up on. It’s the perfect solution. Isn’t it? It should be. Until my heart gets involved, and I have to decide whether it’s time to re-negotiate the terms of our agreement.

But will Noah sign on the dotted line?

The Baby and the Blueblood by Tru Taylor




Title: The Baby and the Blueblood
Series: Eastport Bay Billionaires #3
Author: Tru Taylor
Genre: Small Town Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Emily Cover Design
Release Date: September 21, 2021


BLURB

She’s risen from the ashes of heartbreak…
As a single mom, I’m not looking for Prince Charming. The last time I fell for a handsome, sophisticated, wealthy guy, he left me at the worst possible time without a look backward or even a word of explanation.

He did leave me with a lovely parting gift though… which arrived nine months later.

With no way to reach him, I picked up the pieces of that shattered glass slipper and moved on. Now I’m running my own business—the Fairy Godmother Cleaning Agency. My hands—and all my hours—are more than full managing my employees (including my two hapless stepsisters) and keeping my four-year-old son happy, healthy, fed, and clothed. It’s not easy doing it all on my own, but I have zero interest in a new relationship.

And who has the time? My high society clients expect their Eastport Bay, Rhode Island mansions to be sparkling—on schedule—come hell, high water, or hurricane.

So when a flu epidemic sweeps through my agency the day before the royal family of Aubernesse is to arrive in Eastport Bay, I put on a uniform and pick up the slack, working furiously to make sure their gorgeous vacation home is immaculate and ready for the elaborate ball they’re planning to throw.

He’s looking for the perfect fit…
I’m back in Eastport Bay for the first time in five years—and not exactly happy to be here. There’s a reason I’ve stayed away so long.

The place lost its magic for me long ago—the night the only girl I’ve ever loved proved beyond a shadow of a doubt she didn’t feel the same.

But this trip is non-negotiable, a matter of duty. I’m planning to fly in, attend the ridiculous ball my mother is so insistent upon, then get back to my life in Europe as quickly as possible.

That is until I arrive at the family estate early and catch the cleaning crew still at work.

And get a look at the woman beneath that coating of dust, ash, and spiderwebs…
The Baby and the Blue Blood is a small-town rom com take on Cinderella, filled with heart, heat, and secret baby/second chance/royal billionaire romance fun!

EXCERPT

Cinda
On the way down the grand staircase, I pulled cobwebs from my hair and wiped my hands on my uniform, which now that I looked at it, was none too clean. These old mansions tended to get very dusty when not in regular use.
I’d also splashed myself while cleaning the deep bathtub, so the dust and ash on my clothing had become mud in some spots. Oh well, the only man I’d be spending time with tonight was Jim from The Office, and he wasn’t likely to complain. I was looking forward to putting on my coziest pjs and curling up in bed with the remote— after a very long and very hot shower of course.
The sound of the front door opening startled me. The shock multiplied exponentially when I heard a male voice. A very rich, deep, cultured voice, with a distinct accent.
I froze on the stairs, my heart pounding like a trapped rabbit as the owner of that voice thanked someone for driving him and stepped into the entry hall.
He was tall, dark-haired, incredibly handsome. His fit body was encased in a perfectly tailored suit that looked like it had cost more than my two-bedroom house. Though the last time I’d seen him he was wearing nothing but swim trunks and a swipe of zinc oxide on his nose, I recognized the man instantly.
Alex.
My brain screamed at my legs to turn around and run up the stairs like the mythical character in that fairy tale. But I couldn’t move. I was in shock. I’d never expected to see my first love again anywhere—and certainly not here.
What on earth was he doing, walking into the home of Aubernesse’s ruling family like he owned the place?
Oh. No.
This couldn’t be happening.
