Flawless: Perfection has a Price
Christian Romantic Suspense
Kathryn's icy heart protects her and keeps her alone. One day, a mysterious, yet familiar man saves her from a vicious dog. He spins her world, even when she tries to stop the rotation.
Jared Williamson is handsome, strong, protective, and gentle towards Kathryn. Confused by the power in his touch and the sense of familiarity he sparks within her, Kathryn’s heart begins to melt, triggering a release of memories and releasing deep, buried secrets.
When an old enemy threatens to steal everything Kathryn values and loves, Jared reminds her of the power inside her that time, trauma, and evil sources stole from her. She must decide: will she use the force within her to fight the biggest battle of her life or will she give in to the evil taunting her?
To win, she will gain freedom from the chains that bind her and win the man she loves—the man who is the key that unravels her past, restores her present, and defines her future. To lose, it will cost her everything—including her destiny and her soul.
The SIA: Are you Haunted?
Coming October 10, 2014
Hi. My name is Tess and I’m a Ghost Hunter.
Not Theresa, or Teresa—just Tess—well, not just Tess—saying just makes it sound as if I’m no one special, but I am special. I’ve known it for years because I see things--weird things.
Big deal, right? Please don’t compare me to that kid who says, “I see dead people.” I’m not like that—well, not exactly … I guess my “gift,” if you really want to call it that, is similar to that kid’s. It’s about more than seeing dead people because dead people stay dead.
I see weird stuff. It’s that simple. I considered advertising that way, but that phrase “I see weird stuff” slapped against the side of my van didn’t seem quite as catchy as “I see dead people.”
But I do believe there is something horrible, something dreadful that haunts people and scares them enough to destroy them. This dreadful “thing” wants to come into your house today. It wants to steal your peace, your joy, and wipe out your family. It wants to drive you crazy enough that you never sleep.
I’m here to help you with that.
