Jocelyn Davis is stuck between two worlds but not completely a part of either. As an Elemental, her abilities over the elements of the Earth won’t evolve until she meets her fated, the man destined for her. Until then, she’s easy prey and coveted by Malum Inmortalis, the rogue immortals intent on conquering the world. They abducted her once before. Still, she’s determined to live her life to its fullest, and risking capture isn’t slowing her down.

Alpha werewolf, Landon Waden, has lived with the knowledge his fated female, the one woman created for him, is just beyond his reach. For months, he’s denied her. He’s had no choice. She can’t give him what the pack needs—an heir. When an attempt is made on her life, he can’t help himself. His instinct demands he make sure she’s safe. But then, there’s one problem: he can’t walk away. He won’t. If only she can forgive him for his greatest mistake…

Excerpt 2:
He burst in and examined the spacious room. He sniffed and smelled it—a fragrance. Familiar, yet unlike anything he’d ever scented, and magnificent.
“Hey? You awake? Are you gonna search the room or stand there and daydream?”
The plan had been for him to search while Jacob stood guard, but that aroma distracted him. He shook his head to focus his thoughts. In the middle of the bed on top of the comforter, an indentation, like someone had lain there. He sent a silent prayer hoping the Malums hadn’t gotten to her before them as he strode down a hall and parted a door. That smell was there too. Fighting to ignore it, he took in the vanity, toilet, shower, and tub. Then he backtracked, opened a set of double doors leading into a closet, and found a mannequin wearing a white, long dress. That scent now stronger. Walking farther inside, he froze.
In the far corner, a petite brunette sat on the carpeted floor cradling her legs. Her face buried in her knees.
He took a breath. That scent infiltrated his senses yet again, the fragrance much more powerful than it’d been seconds before.
His stomach knotted. His heart squeezed in his chest.
He couldn’t explain his reaction. He didn’t have time to think about it either. Swallowing, he closed the distance between himself and the woman. “Jocelyn. I’m Landon. Your sister sent me.”
Her head shot up, and her gaze met his, sealing his fate. The most beautiful woman he’d ever seen: long golden-brown hair, chocolate colored eyes, pouty lips.
His pulse spiked as his heart thundered, pounding louder and louder until it was all he heard. Then it all faded. The walls, the floor, everything except her. Heat hit his chest and spread through his body. His legs buckled, making him fall hard on his knees. Canines elongating, he shut his mouth and eyes, knowing they were no longer their normal blue shade but an incandescent yellow, golden color. He couldn’t see anything but her, though he kept his eyes closed. He couldn’t rationalize fully or at all, but he knew.
He’d found her—his fated female.
He couldn’t have her, but he wanted her. He’d never have her, but if he could change fate, he wouldn’t. He loved she was his.

New Release - The Witch and the Beast by H.G. Lynch #NewRelease #PNR



***** New Release February 14, 2019 *****

The Witch and the Beast
H.G. Lynch

"Before Belle, there was the witch who made him a beast. I am that witch."

Agatha is a commoner in the 18th century French town, Ribeauville. A clairvoyant's daughter with the dream of becoming more than her mother. Beautiful and ambitious as Agatha is, she has a dark secret that would mean her death if anyone found out. After all, nobody wants a Witch in town.

However, when a chance encounter with Prince Adam offers her a glimpse at a royal life, she begins to fall for the charming rogue of a Prince.

But Prince Adam is not entirely the suave, noble gentleman he appears to be.

He will pay the price for crossing a Witch.

On the Rox- Why Won't People Just Do Their Jobs?

So we were doing a "lower our bills" assessment and to do this we were going to bundle our security system with cable and internet through Xfinity.

This turned into quite the ordeal. First on the scheduled day the guy shows up and says "I can't do anything our system is down. I can't access the work order." Yet he could access something to show up at our house, right?

No one calls to reschedule. My husband finally calls them, pretty upset because he took the day off work to deal with the guy doing all the installation work. Comcast/Xfinity gives excuses says their system was upgrading says they'll call back later. No one called. Hubby calls them again. They finally tell him someone will be at our house the next day, Tuesday.

On Tuesday morning someone calls about rescheduling the appointment. Apparently they had nothing scheduled for us Tuesday even after telling us the night before they did. At this point husband is livid. Day two he's not working to wait for installation. So they send someone out.

The tech has an attitude as soon as he arrives. "Do you know how long it's going to take me to install two cameras and a security system?"

Excuse me? Who the fu@! cares, that's your job. And two, why the hell you rolling up to my house all pissed off about doing what you get paid to do? Seriously?

Then he proceeds to tell us, no he can't run wires here, can't do it there, he's not moving the siding to run the wires. Nope, he won't get in the attic to run wiring "we don't do that." he says.

So they install security systems that just leave all the wires exposed on the outside of your house? Um, no thanks.

My husband, pretty much raging at this point, sends the guy away. Tells Xfinity to shove their POS security system.

Calls around.

Talks to ADT. We set up an appointment for today.

Appointment for 2pm.

At 2:40pm the guy calls and said his truck is broke down so he won't make it. Wants to do it tomorrow. Sorry it's Saturday and we have plans.

Husband calls ADT, nope they have no one else that can do it today. Yet on his way home 3 ADT trucks were hanging out at McDonalds.

This is the third time my husband has taken time off work to deal with installation. So he is understandably very unhappy. Thank goodness, he is is own boss. But because he is his own boss it means money not made and time wasted these three days.

Two companies in two weeks that have failed. Failed hard. TWO companies that won't do their jobs.

WHY??? Why won't anyone in Flint do their mother fuck@!% job?

So I guess we keep the system we have and don't upgrade. *Sigh*

Apparently my money isn't good enough for Xfinity or ADT.

Book One
Lori Zaremba

Genre: Paranormal Mystery

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Date of Publication: 2/12/2019

Number of pages: 337
Word Count: 78500

Tagline: Some secrets are meant to stay buried.

Book Description

My job? I hunt ghosts. Not to prove they exist—because I already know they do—but to figure out why they’re still here.

My first big case leads me to a mansion on the Chicago Gold Coast, the previous home of a wealthy socialite who lived there until she accidentally fell to her death in 1927.

I’ve never been this determined—and excited—to solve a case like this one before. Pity I’m forced to work alongside a man whose sole purpose is to debunk paranormal activity. But the worst part? He’s gorgeous, and the more we work together, the more I realize I might be falling for him.

Together we’re delving deeper and deeper into the spiritual world. But the more secrets we uncover, the more pissed off these ghosts become; and that’s when I start to realize…we might be in way over our heads.



Excerpt:

His gaze settled on her half-smile. “At least it won’t be boring.”
Her heart did a somersault. “Yeah, I don’t do well with boring.”
Feeling brazen, she leaned over and planted a quick kiss on his mouth. His eyes widened in surprise, and Trudy jumped up, grinning from ear to ear.
“Let’s go, Mr. Young. They’re probably wondering what’s happened to us.” She was halfway out the door.
Jason grabbed her hand before she could reach the hall and spun her around. His lips claimed hers before she could grasp what was happening. Trudy felt his hand on the small of her back molding her to him, while his other hand gently held her head. She felt a thrill like never before, and just as her knees started to give out, he released her.
“Better hurry, Gertrude. Wouldn’t want anyone to think you were trying to take advantage of me in this here grand bedroom.” He smiled into her eyes, and once again she was lost. She shook her head to clear it and get some control of her senses.
“We better go, or I’ll be taking advantage of you.” She laughed, and he did too. She loved the sound of it. She glanced over her shoulder. “I hope that damned camera of yours was turned off.”

As they headed out the door, Jason walking just behind her, he grimaced when he saw the red light on the camera on and grunted, “Oh, shit.”

Book Description:

In 16th-century England, two teenage best friends find themselves on an exciting journey from the country to the Queen’s court in the hope of being named ladies-in-waiting. But Sybille and Rose soon discover they aren’t the only girls who have their sights set on attending Her Majesty.  The girls must compete against worldly and cunning opponents, among them mean-girl Avis and her entourage of back-stabbing co-horts, tipping the balance in their already-tenuous friendship.

Soon, the grand hall is more like the hallway of a prestigious finishing school, with girls fighting for the attention of a dashing, young earl, amid parties fueled by drinking and indiscriminate dalliances. As the tension between Sybille and Avis heats up, the focus on Rose wanes, allowing her to turn her attention to more important matters – like getting close enough to the Queen to learn her secrets.

But being close to the Queen is not without its challenges. And when rumors of Rose’s influence make their way around the castle, no one, not even the Queen, will be safe.

About the Author:

Excerpt:
Over the next couple days, I picked up applications from the couple of banks and other places in town as well as in Shasta, the next town over. On Thursday, Kristy, Lizzy, and I hung out and went for ice cream downtown. We hit a couple of stores as Kristy wanted to get some clothes. I loathed clothes shopping. I peeked at the racks while Kristy tried stuff on and Lizzy weighed in. She got a text. One of the other servers had called off, and Mason needed her to come in.
“I have to get to work. Sorry, Kristy,” Lizzy said.
“That’s fine,” Kristy said. “Can we get some lunch there when we take you in?”
I shook my head slightly at her scheming.
“Absolutely,” Lizzy said, looking at me. “Let’s go.”
We piled into my car and headed out onto Old River Road. It was a great day for a convertible ride. The late summer sun beamed on us as we drove down the road. I had AC/DC blaring, and as we rounded a curve, I heard a siren. Peering into my rearview mirror, I eyed the red flashing police lights atop one of the town’s two SUV police units.
Kristy glanced back. “What the fuck? You weren’t speeding.”
I looked down. I was just below the speed limit. After I pulled over, I got out my registration and insurance. The cop approached my door, and what I saw caused a huge lump to form in my throat.
Campbell had a smug look on his face as he spoke. “License, registration, and proof of insurance please.”
I handed them over without making eye contact.
He examined my license, which still had my Sacramento address on it. “A little way from Sacramento, Miss Bennett, aren’t we?”
“Yeah, I guess I am.”
“Where are you headed right now?” His tone turned from mocking to icy.
“I need to get her to work,” I said, indicating Lizzy.
He eyed Lizzy, who appeared annoyed by his questions. “Oh, a Cowan sister. How fitting. Tell your brother I got a nice cell waiting for him.” She didn’t say anything as his attention moved back to me. “So, are you here on vacation?”
My blood boiled as the dream I had with Jimmy came back to me. I glared at Campbell. “I’m visiting family for a while.”
“So, what is the address you’re staying at in town?”
“What does that matter?” Kristy interrupted any response I was about to make. “What the f—?”
“Smart ass like your brother,” he said, cutting her off. “He’s a great bunk mate for Jonas.”
Now speechless, she sat there.
After opening my door, he indicated for me to move. “Please step out of the vehicle.”
Not wishing to cause a scene, I complied and stood by my car.
He turned me around. “Face your car, hands on the hood.”
Kristy found her voice again. “Are you fucking kidding me? We weren’t doing anything!”
Campbell flashed her a look. “Shut up and don’t move.” He then patted me down. “Do you have any weapons or drug paraphernalia I need to be aware of?” He spun me back to him.
Looking at him dead in the eye, I answered, “No.”
Holding my elbow, he walked me toward his vehicle as he eyed Kristy and Lizzy, who were clearly uncomfortable with what was happening. Despite my apprehension, I followed him. He took me behind his patrol truck and returned my license.
“I suggest you watch yourself, Miss Bennett. These back roads are dangerous, and if something were to happen, it could be quite a while until you’d be found.” My stomach churned as he leaned into me and whispered, “A woman like yourself, all alone, might entice trouble.” He reached for my breast, and I reacted quickly.
Shoving the bottom of my palm up into his lip, I knocked him back but didn’t wait to see his reaction. I returned to my car, got in, then took off. I was sure he was going to follow, but he didn’t.
Kristy turned to me. “We need to report him, Evaline. That was wrong in so many ways.”
Shaking my head, I said, “It will make things worse, trust me. Just forget it, okay?”
She gave Lizzy a concerned look, who then asked, “Why did he take you back there?”
I didn’t say anything as we drove into the parking lot, parked, then got out.
Kristy was still fired up. “This is such bullshit. He made a move on you, didn’t he?”
“Just drop it, Kristy, okay? It’s over. I wanna forget it.”
The dust kicked up in the parking lot as we made our way through the front doors. A few patrons were seated at the bar, and several booths and tables were occupied. We headed to an open booth as Lizzy returned to the back.
While still a bit shaken from the encounter, I pondered what had just happened. A knot was in the pit of my stomach as thoughts raced through my mind.

Does he know I know what he is? Will he try to hurt what family I have left? Will he hurt me to find out what I know? I thought of my dream again—Jimmy had warned me. Or will he kill me?
