Shelter for Cherise

Shelter for Cerise

by Nicole Flockton

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

After surviving a terrifying tornado, Cerise Robinson has re-evaluated her life goals. Her focus now is on, Finn, her foster son and following her dream to adopt him so that she can call him her own. A relationship is the last thing she’s looking for, yet Brodie is not only handsome and sets her heart racing, he’s also wonderful to Finn. He’s almost too good to be true.

Volunteer fire fighter, Brodie Spelling is as happy on the back of horse working on a dude ranch as he was at creating code for the very successful app he and his college buddies developed. So maybe he’s a tech millionaire. No one else needs to know. He’s finally found the balance his life needed—yet something is missing. When he meets Cerise, he discovers an attraction he isn’t expecting. Nor the connection he quickly develops with her foster son. Does he now have the lost piece to complete his puzzle?

As their relationship develops, danger lurks in the shadows waiting to take what Cerise wants most. She will stop at nothing to save Finn, even if it means putting her life on the line…and losing Brodie.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

“I’m glad you came tonight. Did you have fun?”

Brodie stepped a little closer and brushed the back of his knuckles along her soft cheek, careful not to mess up her glitter. “Yeah, I did.”

“Even though they gave you hard time about knowing those tech millionaires but not being in the inner sanctum with them?”

“Yeah, even then. I got to spend time with you. That’s what I enjoyed the most.”

Cerise ducked her head. The urge to taste her was overwhelming him. The scent of her perfume had driven him crazy all night. Along with the way her cheeks sparkled when the light hit them. And she’d reapplied her gloss before leaving so they shone temptingly in the sparsely lit parking lot.

“I liked being with you too.”

He slipped an arm around her waist, waiting a few seconds to see if she would pull away. When she didn’t he raised his other hand and smoothed it over her head. “Can I kiss you, Sparkles?”

“If you don’t, I think I might have to hurt you.”

First Light in Morning Star

First Light in Morning Star

by Charlotte Hubbard

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Inspirational Romance (Amish)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Founded by five enterprising Amish maidels, the new Morning Star Marketplace is a joyous success. What’s even more remarkable is the gift the business bestows upon each of these unmarried women—the unexpected blessing of love . . .

Leaving Flaud’s Furniture to teach at the community’s new school is a joy for Lydianne Christner. Old Order Amish, but new to Morning Star, she’s grateful that the congregation trusts her with the position—but she panics when handsome Bishop Jeremiah Shetler asks about the life she left behind. If anyone discovers the secret she’s hiding, she would, quite rightly, be shunned.

A widower, Bishop Jeremiah admires young Lydianne’s youthful energy and skill with the children. He’s also curious about her past, and the burden he senses on her heart. When his request to court her is refused, he’s stung, and lonelier than ever. It isn’t until a crisis prompts a tearful Lydianne to confess to him that Jeremiah is faced with a choice that requires all of his faith—and teaches them both that love and forgiveness go hand in hand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

“Miss Christner, we’re pleased to offer you this teaching position,” Bishop Jeremiah said as he grasped her hand, “and if you need time to consider your answer—”

“Oh, no, I’ll be happy to accept!” Lydianne interrupted gleefully. “Denki so much for considering my application. What I lack in experience, I’ll make up for with careful preparation and my love of learning. I won’t let you down.”

“That thought never entered our heads,” the bishop put in. “And with Lorena Flaud and Clarence’s Lucy being in their final year of school—and with their sisters right behind them—you’ll have plenty of eager assistance as you teach the youngest ones the basics of reading and arithmetic. I anticipate a productive—and fun—year for our scholars.”

“This is so exciting!” Lydianne said as she shook each man’s hand in turn. “Maybe this sounds silly, but I still love the smell of fresh packages of notebook paper and new bottles of glue, and the joy of opening a fresh box of crayons—thinking of all the drawings and reports and projects that lie ahead of us.”

As she left the schoolhouse and drove down the road, Lydianne floated on a cloud of euphoria. After she turned off the main county highway to head for home, she paused at the sight of a little blond girl chasing a butterfly on the front lawn of Tim and Julia Nissley’s place. With the sunshine shimmering on her golden hair and upturned face, six-year-old Ella Nissley looked for all the world like a little angel. Her laughter rang out as she ran and reached eagerly for the butterfly, followed closely by a little brown puppy that yipped and yapped.

Lydianne’s heart overflowed with a wave of emotions. Her dream had come true: she would now be Ella’s teacher. But she would have to be very, very careful. Ella was the apple of her adoptive parents’ eyes, and Lydianne had no intentions of interfering with their happy family.

No one else, including Tim and Julia, knew that Ella was the newborn baby Lydianne had given up when she’d been an unwed mother.

The Code by Jacqueline Ruby and Marcellus Moses

The Code

by Jacqueline Ruby and Marcellus Moses

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:   Fiction/general

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

The story of the two entangled stars is well known.

Albert Collins, entomology professor, becomes a social media sensation; the sensation becomes a giant celebrity; the celebrity becomes the “Manliest Man” alive.

The small time gangster, Memphis Smith, becomes a prisoner; the prisoner becomes the new Tupac Shakur; the new Tupac takes the world by storm.

Their parallel rise to fame and their fateful meeting on the Tonight show all played out in real time before their legions of fans and detractors.

Now, for the first time, their inside story, their secret story, is told by those who were closest to them.

Jacqueline (Jack) Ruby, super agent, reveals the methods that allowed Albert Collins to become the most desired man in the world. She takes us behind the scenes to the bankers, film producers and heiresses that made Albert into the very definition of manhood in the 21st. century.

Marcellus Moses does the same for Memphis Smith. He shows us the arrests and prison fights, the raw racism and brilliant talent that made Memphis Number One With A Bullet.

Jacqueline and Marcellus tell their insider accounts to the award winning novelist, Susan Brown, who weaves it altogether in the thunderous adventure of The Code.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

Jack watched the expressions passing across Albert’s face as he oscillated between doubt and his secret belief that he deserved something better, much better. She saw him more clearly than ever, tugged between his two ways of being. She knew that he too, like all her clients, wanted and needed to be someone special, to be someone who was admired, loved, respected.

“Remember, Professor, when I said we would find your brand? Well, we may be beginning to see it. I’m not promising anything, but if Edward and I are right, and if we can build on these results, we may be on to something.”

“How will you build on the results?” Albert asked. “Another video?”

“We need to see if this reaction will stand up over time. I don’t know. Maybe the screen test is a flash in the pan, maybe it’s a one-off that can never be duplicated. I don’t know. It’s impossible to say until we see whether you can get the same response doing something else. We need to know if the magic belongs to you or is just a fluke of the test.”

“How will we do that?”

“I don’t know yet. I need to think about it. But whatever the next step, this is a great first one, a really great first one. I ask you only one thing: don’t do anything or talk to anyone about what you’re doing until we’re clear where we’re going.”

“Nobody?”

“Your wife, if you want, but nobody else. It’s likely to be a delicate operation. We don’t want to tip our hand before we’re ready to show it; you need to trust me. Will you trust me again?”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Review:

The Code is a very intense page turner. It tells a very modern story of how the rise to fame through the Internet can be both great and destructive. I enjoyed the characters. They were fully developed and interesting to read about. It also depicts the life of those we tend to look up to. It educates us on the life and times of the ever revered stars of our society. It also shows just how amoral their lives can be. This is an excellent story that will have the reader not wanting to put the book down. I highly recommend reading it.
