Offsides Book 1
Natalie Decker
YA Sports Contemporary Romance

306 pages
Cheerleader Layla and football player Tyler are complete opposites. She thinks he's the biggest jerk in school and he thinks she's too high on her
horse to even be worth a second glance. When the two of them are near one another, sparks fly in all the wrong directions. They can hardly endure speaking, let alone dating. 

But when Layla unknowingly sends Tyler a smack-down text meant for the girl sending naked photos to her then-boyfriend, Adam, Tyler has no idea it's Layla and decides to play along. After all, Tyler cannot resist messing with the pissed off girl firing off texts about junk pictures, cheating, and girl code. 

As the fallout from Adam's scandalous texts plays out in front of the entire school, Tyler and Layla secretly continue to text each other using fake names. But as days and weeks pass, things take a turn for the serious between them, and suddenly, their texts mean more. Maybe it's time to come clean about who they are and risk taking the relationship from texts to dates, then kissing, and maybe more. 

They say there's a thin line between love and hate. Can reality live up to the fantasy, or will Layla and Tyler be forever offsides?

Right Kiss, Wrong Guy
Offsides Book 2

313 pages
You'd think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her pick of boyfriends. 

But Valentine's Day sucks when you're single. Just ask Juliet Valentine, whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded made-up holiday ever. 

A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom's match-making business is doing great, and her school's new fundraiser is "Love-Grams."

Juliet's miserable, a little jealous, and lonely. 

Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet Valentine, he's all but invisible. She isn't impressed. 

Jared's never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before. Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and he's determined to ask Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to have a shot with Layla's sister.

Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won't work on Juliet. So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school's Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?


Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone's face. Juliet won't play his game.

Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it's going to take a Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.

Spirits of Texas Book 1

Genre: Paranormal Cozy Mystery
From the author of The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series and Forgotten Boxes, comes an intriguing new book series, the Spirits of Texas Cozy Mysteries. 
When the tiny hamlet of Hannah, Texas goes up for auction, Hannah Duncan's fun-loving uncle sees it as the perfect gift for her thirtieth birthday. After all, what's more fun than a town bearing your own name? 
Nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, the 'town' isn't much - a dozen or less buildings in various stages of disrepair-but it comes with a dedicated pair of caretakers, a menagerie of farm animals, a surprisingly generous trust fund, enough stipulations to make her head spin, and a handsome but maddening attorney to oversee the handling of the estate.
Originally a stagecoach stop, Hannah, Texas resolves around the historic and rather charming Spirits of Texas Inn. The old inn comes with a colorful past, the mystique of hidden treasure, loyal guests who still book summer vacations there, and three surprise residents: true spirits of the past, who didn't cross over as expected. 
Now Hannah has her hands full, coming to terms with her unexpected status as an innkeeper, adjusting to life in the country, fighting her attraction to attorney Walker Jacoby, plus dealing with ghosts! 
To top it off, two fortune hunters arrive to search for the hidden treasure, and they don't care who stands in their way. They'll stoop to any means-including murder-to get their hands on the legendary stash of gold.
Don't miss out on the excitement, right from the beginning. Book your visit to Hannah, Texas today!

BOOK BLITZ: Sugar and Spice and all those Lies by Evy Journey SPOTLIGHT+GIVEAWAY

Evy Journey, writer, wannabe artist, and flâneuse (feminine of flâneur), wishes she lives in Paris where people have perfected the art of aimless roaming. Armed with a Ph.D., she used to research and help develop mental health programs.

She's a writer because beautiful prose seduces her and existential angst continues to plague her despite such preoccupations having gone out of fashion. She takes occasional refuge by invoking the spirit of Jane Austen to spin tales of love, loss, and finding one's way-stories into which she weaves mystery or intrigue.

Connect with the Author here: 

Gina's grandfather was a French chef whose life was cut short by a robber's bullet. The only lasting legacy he could leave his family was his passion and talent for cooking.

A world of new challenges, new friends, and new loves opens up for her when she's chosen to cook for a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Can her passion for cooking help Gina survive and thrive in this world of privilege, pleasure and menace?

I'm alive. I'm dead. I'm in-between. In that limbo where my vital signs hover just above death. I rise above my body and look down on it, lying on a gurney. Hospital staff are rushing me along the brightly-lit hallway to the operating room. One of them holds an oxygen mask on my face. Another, a bag of intravenous fluid connected to my veins by a tube.

I'm not ready to die yet. These good people anxious to rescue me don't know that my resolve is the only thing that is keeping me alive. No, I'm not ready to die-I've only just begun to live. I have yet to prove to myself, to the world, that I have what it takes to prevail.

My family-now on their way to the hospital-doesn't know yet exactly what happened to me. And except for one detective, neither do the police. I see him now by the foot of the gurney, keeping pace with the nurses. He's scowling, his lips pressed into a grim line.

A tall, taut, and solitary man, he has deep-set gray eyes clouded by too many images of violent death and a lower lip that hangs perpetually open in disgust or despair. So much darkness he has already seen in his thirty odd years in this world. He needs to piece together the facts that constitute the attempt on my life, events that may have led to it, and various fragments of my past to understand what brought me to this point.
The first time I met him, I fell in love with him. There was something primal about him, some paternal, animalistic instinct to save hurt or fallen victims. Like me, maybe. It gave him power and it made him irresistible to me.

But fate is fickle. It teases. It entices. One day, something quite ordinary happens to you. Yet, you sense that that ordinary something can change your life. Not necessarily for something better, but for something new. Fate is dangling before you the promise of a world that, before then, was totally out of your reach. How can you not seize it?
Now, of course, I see the end of that promise. And it's not where I want to be.
It's tragic, don't you think, that the end of that promise should be right here on a gurney, with me fighting for my life? It certainly is not what I hoped for.

How could it end this way? I embraced life, took chances, but half-dead on this gurney, I wonder: Am I paying with my life? But, like I said. I'm not ready to die yet
