Adult, Contemporary Romance
A Love and War novel (can be read as stand alones)

I crashed and opened my eyes... there you were, fierce and protective, and I knew... I just knew it was you all along.
Ex-Marine Trent Reed has been shot at, in a coma, and placed in war zones, but when his best friend calls in a favor, he is faced with the most dangerous situation yet—to be the best man. Trent’s turbulent past with races other than his own taints his view on the interracial marriage, and he’s none too happy to deal with the ill-tempered maid of honor. To accept the position means understanding that his friend is soon to be out of his life—for good.
Tough-girl Teal Lofton has struggled all of her adult life, from her weight to the color of her skin holding her back in work and love. When she agrees to be the maid of honor in her friend’s wedding, a hormonal bride and a jerk of a best man who she is strangely, yet wildly, attracted to, amplify those struggles.
As tensions and tempers rise, Trent disappears with the wedding rings and Teal braves a snowstorm to bring them back, determined to fix yet another problem. But a tragic accident brings together the unlikely pair, forcing them to face the prejudices of their pasts. In doing so, Trent and Teal embark on an inevitable course of self-discovery and passion like they’ve never experienced before—until a secret from Trent’s past threatens to destroy it all.



Me, my Shelf, and I ~ 28/02/2015


Me, my Shelf, and I is my version of a weekly recap post, and also a feature to tell you more about myself. What exactly I am doing, you can see here.

ME ... nosedive?

Definition: "to fall from a great height, nose first"

I'm not a clumsy person in general, but I guess that has much to do with me not doing most things that require lots of hand-foot-coordination. If you take the less literal approach, then yes, I do tend to put my foot in my mouth more often than other people around me. I'm honest and I hate tip-toeing around subjects or people, so it happens quite a lot, but I don't mind. I know how to not make a big deal out of it and say sorry, even if I might not mean it.

and I

... had a pretty uneventful week, but with two days that exhausted me. 5-6 translation, then 3h teaching, plus 1h driving around. Just a normal day for any working person, I know, but the people contact and all the stupid drivers thanks to the construction sites wore me out.

... visited my father yesterday, the biological one. He and his new wife live only 5min away now, but we're all busy people. Anyway, they renovated their whole apartment (he's a house painter by trade), and while I don't know how it looked before, I was floored by the after. He did a real number on that one -- he so knows what he's doing. I totally got all his practical genes! My parents were there, too, and family friends I know since childhood, and while we talked and joked, I rwas reminded that I got my whole character from him, but my mom's looks, and it makes me think about the classical nature vs nurture debate...

Emmy has everything she’s ever wanted: a hot boyfriend she adores, great friends, a promising future, and even a well-connected family.
But one night rips it all away.
A car accident shatters her world, claiming the lives of her twin brother and her best friend. In the wake of the accident, her friends drift away, her family falls apart, and her boyfriend cheats.
The grief is more than she can handle, so she finds escape at the bottom of a bottle of painkillers. Taking the pills makes her brother alive again, if only in her head. Seeing and talking to her brother as if he were still alive is the only thing that keeps her going. Until Logan King moves to town.
Logan sees past the mask of pristine popularity she wears in public and he’s the only one who can tell she hasn’t moved on. His uncanny ability to read her forces her to open up and she starts to fall for him, no matter how unwilling she is to admit it. But Emmy isn’t the only one keeping secrets and when a close brush with death sparks events that bring everything to light, Emmy will have to decide what’s more important: learning how to forgive and move on, or holding onto the pills and the ghost of her past.

What do you do when you can't save the one you love?
Sophie can’t survive without control. Growing up with an alcoholic father, she craves the discipline of gymnastics. Feeling lost on a brand new college campus, she lets loose for the first time in her life. But with freedom comes consequences. Is one night everything she hopes? Or will she become her own worst nightmare?
Kipton's one year away from graduation. He's never thought beyond a one night stand until meeting his sister’s new roommate. Finally setting his sights on the girl he can't resist, he's more determined than ever when she won't give in to his persuasions. He's always gotten the girl, and he's not about to give up without a fight.
Will Sophie be able to salvage her dreams and wage a war against her own vices? Can she finally let love in? Or will history repeat itself causing her to self-destruct?

Lighter isn't your typical college romance. Darkness suffocates, dreams are dashed, and battles are lost. Love takes on a whole new meaning.
