Sci-fi fantasy

Date Published: 01-19-2022

Publisher: Indies United



In 2045 America is ruled by ‘The Brain’. It’s a country of dried-up rivers, computer project educations, holographs, and robots. Most species have died off and even fresh air is scarce. Children don’t form bonds and therefore can’t love. They become drones – dangerous killers. The answer lies on a road in Pindar Corners but to find it is to risk the loss of your soul.

In need of a hero, Harry Erin Cooper steps up to the plate and, along with his wife, Adina, they restore what should have been.

𝐓𝐲

I’ve made promises I’m struggling to keep.

Because my past is too dark and painful.

Zoey is everything to me, my beautiful soulmate.

I can’t bear for her to think I’m broken.

But pressure’s building and I’m losing control .

Will one fateful day destroy everything I’ve ever dreamed of?

𝐙𝐨𝐞𝐲

My life with Ty is idyllic.

This past year has been everything I dreamed about and more.

It’s just—I can’t shake this feeling.

Something’s going on with my fiancé.

I can’t help but wonder, is he hiding something from me?

Will his past demons prevent our perfect future?

Happily ever after can mean so many things.

Life happens.

Faith is tested.

Will Ty & Zoey survive the biggest challenge of their lives?

Is the deepest love endless?

It’s all I can do not to faint when I watch Mike Pearson lead Zoey to the edge of the patio. My butterfly is absolutely breathtaking. Angelic. She leans up and kisses her dad on the cheek. He helps her arrange her dress, and she takes his arm. 

Then she looks up and looks directly into my eyes.

Mine.

Her radiant smile spreads across her face. I’ve never seen her so happy. So sure of herself. In this moment, I know, without any shadow of a doubt, that my purpose in life is to make sure she never loses that smile. 

She floats toward me, and I’m smiling through happy tears. We’ve finally made it here. As she gets closer, I can’t help but reach out my hand to her. Mike swats it away good-naturedly and everyone laughs, including Zoey.

Carter, who was Internet-ordained specifically to marry us, proudly presides over our ceremony. It’s fitting, considering he not only was instrumental in breaking us up, but maneuvering it so we’d get back together. He’s a man with many regrets, fuck-ups and foibles, but he’s the closest thing I have to a father.

And I love him, for all his flaws.

Everything else falls away when Zoey and I say our vows. My eyes never leave hers and we clutch each other’s hands tightly. We exchange our rings and just like that, she’s my wife. I’m her husband. Our kiss sealing the deal is scorching. So scorching, everyone hoots and whistles. The second we break apart, our closest friends and family surround us in one giant hug. I truly can’t recall ever feeling so completely comfortable in the moment at hand.

So this is what true peace feels like.

I like it.

But you’d be wrong. I, Nolan Cassidy, international charmer and maker of mischief have fallen head over heels for Cora Delaney. I want to be married to the lass. So you might think the problem would be that she wants an annulment. But again you’d be wrong—stop getting it so wrong. I, Nolan Cassidy, with my devil tongue and Irish accent, will no doubt change her mind. Does the problem lie in that she has a son who doesn’t like me and is as clever and crafty as I? Or that I’ve only got one month—until St. Patrick’s Day—to prove to my one true love that I can be a good husband and father? C’mere and I’ll tell ya… None of that is the problem. I’m a problem. My boxing days may be behind me but the fight never left me. When I see something I want, I get it. And nothing is going to stand in my way. Not my new wife’s hesitation nor her son’s doubts.

Thunder on the Moor Series

Thunder On the Moor

Thunder On The Moor Book 1

by Andrea Matthews

Genre: Time Travel Historical Romance

Maggie Armstrong grew up enchanted by her father’s tales of blood feuds and border raids. In fact, she could have easily fallen for the man portrayed in one particular image in his portrait collection. Yet when her father reveals he was himself an infamous Border reiver, she finds it a bit far-fetched—to say the least—especially when he announces his plans to return to his sixteenth century Scottish home with her in tow.
Suspecting it’s just his way of getting her to accompany him on yet another archaeological dig, Maggie agrees to the expedition, only to find herself transported four hundred and fifty years into the past. Though a bit disoriented at first, she discovers her father’s world to be every bit as exciting as his stories, particularly when she’s introduced to Ian Rutherford, the charming son of a neighboring laird. However, when her uncle announces her betrothal to Ian, Maggie’s twentieth-century sensibilities are outraged. She hardly even knows the man. But a refusal of his affections could ignite a blood feud.
Maggie’s worlds are colliding. Though she’s found the family she always wanted, the sixteenth century is a dangerous place. Betrayal, treachery, and a tragic murder have her questioning whether she should remain or try to make her way back to her own time.
To make matters worse, tensions escalate when she stumbles across Bonnie Will Foster, the dashing young man in her father’s portrait collection, only to learn he is a dreaded Englishman. But could he be the hero she’s always dreamed him to be? Or will his need for revenge against Ian shatter more than her heart?

Ride With the Moonlight

Thunder On the Moor Book 2

After rescuing sixteenth-century Border reiver Will Foster from certain death at her family’s hands, time traveler Maggie Armstrong finally admits her love for the handsome Englishman, though she can’t rid herself of the sinking suspicion that her Scottish kin are not about to let them live in peace. What she doesn’t expect is the danger that lurks on Will’s own side of the Border.

When news of their plans to marry reaches the warden, he charges Will with March treason for trysting with a Scot. Will and Maggie attempt to escape by fleeing to the hills, but when Will is declared an outlaw and allowed to be killed on sight, they can no longer evade the authorities. Will is sentenced to hang, while Maggie is to be sent back to her family. Heartbroken, she has no choice but to return to Scotland, where her uncle continues to make plans for her to wed Ian Rutherford, the wicked Scotsman who she now realizes murdered her father in cold blood.

With Will facing the gallows in England, and herself practically under house arrest in Scotland, she continues to resist her uncle’s plans, but her efforts are thwarted at every turn.Will’s family, however, is not about to stand by and watch their youngest lad executed simply because he’s lost his heart to a Scottish lass.

A daring plan is set into motion, but will it be in time to save Will’s life and reunite the lovers? Or will Ian’s lies prompt Maggie’s family to ensure the bond between them is forever destroyed?

Shake Loose the Border

Thunder On the Moor Book 3

With Will and Maggie’s wedding just a week away, the last thing they need to stumble upon is Johnnie Hetherington’s dead body tied to a tree, especially one that’s so close to their cottage. Recognizing it as a sure sign that Johnnie has betrayed the family once too often, Sergeant Richie Carnaby gathers Will and his family together for questioning, though it seems obvious only a fool would kill a man on his own land. Then who did murder the rogue, and why?

Feeling confident it wasn’t any of the Fosters, Richie allows Will and Maggie’s wedding to proceed, but the couple has barely exchanged vows when the Armstrongs attack in force. Geordie is determined to rescue his niece from the clutches of Will Foster, whether she wants to go or not. And if he happens to make her a widow in the process, so be it. Will senses the danger and implores Dylan to get Maggie away to safety, no matter where — or when — that may be.

Though Maggie protests, Will assures her he will follow as soon as he is able. Yet how can that be possible when Dylan whisks her back to the twentieth century? Sharing her fears about Will, and unable to forget his own love, Annie, Dylan attempts to return to the past one last time despite his growing concerns over the disintegrating amulet stone. But will he make it in time to rescue Will, or will the villainous Ian Rutherford, who has already killed in cold blood once, win the ultimate battle and see Will and Maggie separated forever?

Andrea Matthews is the pseudonym for Inez Foster, a historian and librarian who loves to read and write and search around for her roots, genealogical speaking. She has a BA in History and an MLS in Library Science and enjoys the research almost as much as she does writing the story. In fact, many of her ideas come to her while doing casual research or digging into her family history. She is the author of the Thunder on the Moor series set on the 16th century Anglo-Scottish Border, and the Cross of Ciaran series, where a fifteen-hundred-year old Celt finds himself in the twentieth century.

Genre: New Adult Sports Romance
Release Date: February 15, 2022


BLURB

This isn’t one of those stories where I was always in love with my brother’s best friend, and he’d spent years crushing on me.

Furthest thing from it, really.

I like Braden Murphy well enough. He’s a nice guy, and the football’s team star running back.

That’s why I asked him to help me get the attention of a real life prince charming.

Prince Stefan Lundin is a senior at Kinston college.

Rumor has it he’s looking for his princess.

I’m a pretty down to earth girl inside, which means I need to up my game.

Basically, pretend to be everything I’m not.

Braden reluctantly agrees, and then something crazy happens.

I realize I’ve been chasing the wrong prince this whole time.

Too bad I’ve became nothing but a lie.

Everything Braden hated. Everything I hated.

Here I was selling myself to the wrong guy, but now I’m worried the one I really want is no longer buying.

EXCERPT

A strange noise crawls out of his throat. “I’m not letting you go alone.”
I put one hand on my hip. “Hey, I’m a big girl. If I want to go alone, I’ll go alone.”
“Do you want to go alone, Cassidy?”
Oh, God, when he says my name like that, I can’t help but think about sex lessons. Thanks for putting that into my brain, Becca!
“No.” He shakes his head at me and chuckles. “But the point is, why don’t you want me to go alone?”
“I don’t know.” He scrubs his face and frowns. “I just don’t want you to, and I can’t explain why.”
“That’s fine. We need to be seen together anyway.”
He nods, and his hand brushes mine as we walk. It sends shivers skittering through me. “You did a great job on the posters and the speech. You really have a way of inspiring people.”
I snort. I’m not great at receiving compliments, usually because I receive more criticism than anything, so I blow it off and say, “I don’t think I’m really great at it. But I do enjoy it.”
“I don’t think you give yourself enough credit.”
“Yeah, maybe, maybe not.”
He goes quiet as he walks me back to my place. It’s easy to tell he has something big on his mind, but I don’t press. I have enough on my own, thinking about what I’ll wear tonight, and what I’ll do or say to Stefan if I find myself alone with him.
We reach my sorority house and he comes up the steps with me. I reach for my bag. “I got it,” he says.
“You don’t have to come up.”
“I know.” He walks inside and heads up the steps. I follow behind and try not to stare at his ass and the nice way his jeans hug his bottom.
He reaches the top and waits for me, and we walk side by side to my room. I push the door open and he drops my bag onto the table. I face him and his eyes are narrowed, as he scrubs his chin again.
I’m about to thank him for walking me, and tell him I’ll see him at the party, but he says, “Cass.”
“Yeah.”
His head lifts and his eyes meet mine. “I’ll do it if you want. I mean, if you think it will help.”
“Do what? What will help…?” My pulse jumps. Ohmigod, is he saying what I think he’s saying?
He swallows, and he reaches out and takes my hand. He gives it a squeeze, and I feel the pressure all the way to the needy spot between my legs when he says, “Give you sex lessons.”

Publication date: February 3rd 2022
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance, Science Fiction

Paradise Atlantis: The underwater, high tech vacation destination where utopia awaits.

Not for Sam. Not only is she deathly afraid of being submerged under millions of tons of ocean water, she’s stuck for an entire month with the people she blames for her family falling apart. Even with the unexpected attention of two sexy men, including her longtime celebrity infatuation, Sam is sure the trip will be a nightmare.

She’s both right and wrong. A type of pressure sickness she was unprepared for hits Sam hard, causing both lowered inhibitions and blackouts. When she gives in to her desires, a passionate romance blossoms.

Unfortunately, even this steamy new relationship can’t salvage the trip when a saboteur uses the AI to commit murder – murder timed perfectly with Sam’s mysterious blackouts. Now Sam must clear her conscience by finding the truth. But is she prepared for what she’ll find? Because either she’s a killer or she’s setting herself up to be next on the growing list of victims.

“Gayle transports readers to an underwater utopia in Love at 20,000 Leagues… Devoted paranormal and sci-fi romance fans will enjoy the futuristic setting.” – Publisher’s Weekly

EXCERPT:

“I guess this is my stop,” I said, hesitating at the threshold.

“Mine too.” Mason joined me, letting the doors slide shut behind him.

“What are you doing on the sixth floor?” I was flattered if this was his way of trying to have some more time with me.

“I wish I was hanging out with you.” He leaned close, seeming to read my mind. “Unfortunately, my dear mother has asked me to investigate a lead on the resident vandal.”

“On my floor?” I asked, curious.

“It wasn’t you, was it?” He grinned. “Personally, I think you taking a stand against my mother would be quite sexy.”

“Hate to ruin your daydream, but I was locked safely in my room last night. What have you found out so far?” I had to admit, curiosity was starting to get to me.

“That’s need-to-know.” Mason raised a hand in a Boy Scout gesture.

“What if I need to know?” I asked, stepping in close. “I can be rather convincing.”

“Do demonstrate.” Mason quirked his mouth up in the corner, and I imagined tasting those lips. “I’m not beyond bribery.”

I cleared my throat. “What exactly do you have in mind?”

“Well, you already promised me dinner this evening. What say we trade classified information for another date tomorrow? I’d say it’s a fair arrangement.” Mason’s smile nearly blinded me as sparks flew to all the right parts of my body.

I pretended to think about his offer, tilting my head and tapping my chin. “I suppose it would be acceptable. Why don’t you come in to my room, so we can talk?” Talking isn’t all I wanted to do with him.

I led the way inside my quarters to the white sofa. I sat on one end, giving Mason his choice, and crossed my legs as casually as possible.

Without hesitation, he planted himself right beside me. He wrapped one arm over the back of the cushion and tilted his body so he could face me.

“Sometime last night around two in the morning, as far as we can tell, someone took a can of spray paint and left a message at the base of the Poseidon statue.” Mason watched carefully for my reaction, I suppose knowing it was my mother’s artwork. But I needed more information to truly process this on top of everything else that had happened. Was it possible to be so overrun with emotion that at some point there wasn’t room for any more?

“What sort of message?” I asked.

Mason coughed, but it didn’t cover his laugh. “Down with the bitch. Your reign is near an end.”

“A threat against your mom?” I asked, unsure who else it could’ve meant. “Aren’t you worried?”

“Nah. You don’t get to where my mother is without making a few enemies. And let’s face it, they pegged her just right.” When he saw my face, he added, “Don’t worry, I’m sure it’s harmless. We did background checks on everyone before inviting them down here. She gets empty threats like this all the time.”

That hardly made me feel better. Who would have done that while trapped down here with her? “So…why this floor?”

Mason furrowed his brow, seeming uncomfortable. “The security footage around the area blacked out for an hour, but so did the footage all the way back to Mermaid’s Cove.”

“Let me guess. The sixth floor went out too.”

“Yep.” Mason leaned forward.

“You can’t seriously believe the person who did this is really on this floor.” I snorted.

Mason straightened in his seat. “I think it’s pretty obvious that’s precisely where they are.”

“It’s too obvious. I mean, if someone had the ability to get through your security system, why would they be stupid enough to leave you a trail right to them?”

Mason’s face blanked and then slowly broke into a smile. “Maybe we should put you in charge of the investigation.”

“Leave me out of it,” I said. “I mean yeah, I’m pissed that someone took it out on my mom’s statue, but it’s not like that’s common knowledge, so curiosity is as far as I get with this investigation. Feel free to run things by me though.”

“I’ll take you up on that. You can be my secret weapon. Of course, if you demand payment, I’m not sure what more I have to offer.” His voice lowered, sending tingles of anticipation down to my toes as he leaned in.

My heart thumped as those luscious lips finally met mine. I’d dreamed of this moment since I was twelve, and it didn’t disappoint. His tongue slipped inside my parted mouth, gently probing my own, and my entire body responded. A moan escaped from somewhere deep in my throat as his hands slid beneath my shirt, running up the sides of my ribcage.

EXCERPT:

Slipping off the bed, I reach my hand out. “I can take it.” I remove the plate from her dainty hand.

She pivots, moving away from me, but I’m not ready for her to go. My mind rakes for ways for her to stay longer. It’s been a long time since we’ve said more than a few hellos to each other.

“Where are you rushing off to?”

She turns. “Just to help Mom. Did you need anything else?” she asks. Her feet fidget. I see that nervous tendency hasn’t changed.

“Quick question… What grade are you in again?” I know the answer. My obsession with Simone had me keep track of the details I overheard her mom tell my dad. I’d hide in the corner listening to them talk, trying to glean any morsel of information I could about her. Every brief whisper of her name, each tale of accomplishment… I lapped it up.

“I’m a junior. Why?”

An idea takes root.

“Just needed help with my calculus class.” I sprinkle a dash of lie. The class has been kicking my ass. I overheard your mom bragging to Dad about you taking advanced calculus. I’m a straight-A student, but it will provide an opportunity for us to spend more time together, and in doing so, rekindle our friendship.

It’s a means to an end.

Her cheeks ripen like a red apple.

“Actually, numbers are the one thing I feel I comprehend.”

“Great, let me get my book. I can’t afford to fail this class.” Smiling to myself, I turn to my book bag laying on my desk across the room. Then I drift to the love seat in the corner. “Are you going to tutor me from over there, or are you going to sit?” I smirk.

She rolls her eyes at my comment.

“Come.” I pat the empty spot next to me.
