Forever Yours

by Annee Jones

About the Clean Slate Series:
With the New Year comes hope for a better one. A clean slate, if you will, to leave the past behind and start fresh. For these characters, that’s exactly what they intend to do. They’re not running away; they’re running toward something new.

Excerpt

“I know we haven’t talked about this,” he continued, “but hey, I know you feel the same way I do, babe. We are Chicago’s next power couple, after all. What could be better than making it official? Let’s take this city by storm, sweetheart.” He dropped down to one knee and reached into his coat pocket, drawing out a small black velvet-covered box. This can’t be happening, Callie thought as beads of cold sweat began to form on her forehead. Hunter popped the box open with his index finger, revealing a gigantic solitaire. “Say you’ll be my wife,” he said, looking intently into her eyes. Callie could feel gazes shifting in her direction as the room grew silent.

“I… I…” she stuttered, then promptly burst into tears and ran from the room.

Blurb

He’s there on a whim. She’s there to help her aunt. They’re both missing something. Can it be each other?

“Find your Perfect Match this summer at the seaside…” The Forever Yours matchmaking agency is hosting a vacation package week in Seaview, Florida. Taking a break from her busy but unrewarding life in Chicago, Callie Winthrop has come to town to find respite at her beloved Aunt Fran’s bed and breakfast.
When the CEO of Forever Yours – who just happens to be staying at the inn for the event – offers Callie the opportunity to attend the activities and meet the most eligible bachelors in the country, how can she say no?

Jackson Thorne, a successful Tampa contractor, can’t believe the nerve of his brother, who actually thought it was a good idea to sign him up for a matchmaking vacation this summer. Jackson acknowledges, however, that he has been avoiding commitment ever since his last relationship ended in tragedy. Hence it may actually be good for him to start dating again – much as he would hate to admit it. Maybe there’s even a chance he could meet the woman of his dreams this summer?

Surviving Contempt

by Jade Thorn

You would think that having her own coven meant Melody was safe, but all she’d done was graduate from a small pond to a larger one, and boy oh boy was she small fry.

Yet she had people depending on her, which meant Melody had to put her personal concerns aside and move forward for the greater good. Her mates and familiars would understand, so would her friends and family.

Or would they?

Could fighting for the very people who had saved her from harm, destroy the very relationships she was trying so hard to protect?

One thing was certain, none of them were safe as long as the remnants of Bestia still walked free, and nothing, but nothing was more important than their destruction.

Could Melody save them all once again, without losing herself in the process?

**Warning, this is a dark reverse harem story with elements that may cause some readers distress, including but not limited to descriptions of past physical and sexual abuse, neglect, torture and death. Please consider carefully before purchasing. Not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

Heart of Fire Sequel

Today’s been busy. Vicki and Ken did the grocery shopping. When they got home, I helped with prepping stuff for the freezer. I didn’t think I’d get writing time but I managed to write a small scene which led to a slightly longer scene before I had to prep for the author talk.

I did the author talk which was a bit slow. There weren’t a lot of people on with us. It was a good conversation.

After my author talk, wrote some more. I’m really close to the end of this story. I want to do nothing more than write but I’m wiped out.

Tomorrow is a full day with a few activities. I’ll be making breakfast while Ken gets out my swag for book events. Vicki and I will go through it tomorrow after breakfast – I think. We need to figure out what I have and what I need by October. There’s an author event – Book Love on the Rock – I’m going to and another one in February 2024 – RAWR Romance Atlanta Writers and Readers. I need to start buying and prepping for these events. It’s a lot to wrap my head around.

My hope is tomorrow after all the tasks I’ll have time to write and edit. I have a new client and need to get their work done as well as my own. With Monday off, I’ll try to focus on writing but the family does insist on me spending time with them.

Today was a good day for writing, I got over 3500 words written. I finished a partial chapter and finished a second chapter. I’m super pleased with my progress. According to my outline – still can’t believe I’m using one – I have five chapters left. If they are all about 2500 long, I will be over the word count for the story. I’m not worrying about it just yet. I want to tell the story and then I’ll see how long it is.

I hate the idea of cutting any of my ideas so I’ll check with the organizer and see what she says. I have time to adjust if I need to.

Fatal Distractions – anthology

“Borrowed Time,” by Virginia Wallace

It is a strange feeling, Elinor once thought, to be in the bathroom when one is supposed to be in the movie theater. It leaves one feeling rather out of place, and ill at ease. This is how she’s felt her entire life, and it all started with a visit from a specter named Dave—and a jar of moonshine.

“The Budsem Affair,” by Virginia Wallace

Bubba Waugh just wanted to use the phone, in a building deceptively labeled ‘Mistress Mary’s School for Girls .’ Little does naïve, country-born Bubba know that a certain ‘Mistress Holly’ is waiting for him …

“Thirst,” by Catalyst Jost

Maxwell is trapped in a world of hallucinations, and vivid dreams. It all started with a blood-red drink, poured into an ornate goblet. Can Max fight his way through the nightmare? Will he ever reconnect with the love of his life, or is he simply too far gone?

“The Protocols,” by Virginia Wallace

“Five Candles,” by Virginia Wallace

Jake DeCarlo leads a shameless existence, living in a world of booze, drugs, and cheap sex. Even his devoutly Catholic mother can’t get through to him. But when the eternal bill for his debauchery comes due, a mysterious man named Uncle Yenaldo is more than willing to chat with him …

“A Time to Die,” by Loren A. Douglas

Adam is watching his wife waste away from cancer. What’s killing him is also watching his neighbor’s beautiful, abused, young-adult daughter inch ever closer to suicide. While one woman is fighting for her life, another is moving towards throwing it all away. This begs the question: is it really such a sin, to put the soul of a suicide candidate into the body of a desperate, dying person? One woman wants to live. The other does not. Wherein lies the right or the wrong of the matter …?

“Find Me in the Mirror,” by Virginia Wallace

Amanda’s adult life is a spectacular success. Her childhood, on the other hand, was a train wreck. The Repeating Universe Theory claims that there are endless universes, with infinite variations upon reality. Search the repeating universes long enough, and you might eventually find another you. And it is in this maze of cosmic variables, that Amanda is able to offer a word of encouragement to her younger self.

“Rime of a Fairy,” by Chris Taylor

Music has always been near and dear to the heart of man. The Celts believed that such enraptured melodies were the work of the Fae, and perhaps this is true …

New Short Story

Short stories are fun to write but the pacing can be troublesome depending on the word count allowed for the anthology.

I started writing a short story – calling it Portal for right now – It’s a part 2 to Heart of Fire. I have three chapters written and about 10K (slightly under) done.

I outlined this story. I don’t like to work with an outline because I usually get sidetracked from them and then frustrated because I have to put stuff aside. Well this has helped me focus which is a bit odd for me.

My hope is by the end of the weekend, I’ll have completed the first draft. But we’ll see. I just got a client for editing so that will slow me down a bit.

When I set up the new journal and made the decision to work this way, I was concerned it wouldn’t work but first run of it seems to be working. It at the very least keeps me on track.

I ended off starting the new chapter. It was in my head so I wanted to get the scene down before I forgot. Now tonight I can dream about the next step. It’s all about one mate being setup. Some of the dragons calling for his punishment and others standing by him. All while his mates are trying to find out the real traitor and who set him up.

I’ve got two chapters to write about it so depending on how much writing time I get tomorrow, I might be able to squeak out the two chapters. I’ve been averaging between 2500 words and 3500 words a night. It’s good progress.

Zero’s Mercy

by Linny Lawless

Zero earned his name because when it comes to showing mercy, he has none. As the President of the Merciless Few MC Maryland Chapter – the National chapter – he has gained the loyalty and respect of his brothers. Each of them follows his lead, and they serve a cold dish of vengeance to their enemies. When Zero’s path crosses with the feisty, foul-mouthed, and very sexy mechanic named Charlie, who has gotten herself into a whole lot of trouble and is now on the hit list of another MC, she reminds him of something he’d long forgotten. Mercy is not only for the weak—it’s needed when the woman you love is in danger.
