NEW RELEASE!

Heartache. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Redemption… It’s time to head back to Magdalena, New York, and spend a little time with the people we love to love and even a few we love to hate.

Only one thing is missing from Tess and Daniel “Cash” Casherdon’s perfect life—a child. Oh, how they long for one to make their life complete. But what is it people say about being careful what you wish for…? Their wish will come true, but not in the way they think.

Daniel Casherdon’s past is about to catch up with him. It’s bad enough when a woman arrives in Magdalena with a nine-year-old boy she claims is his, but confessing to a terminal illness and asking Tess and Cash to raise the boy when she’s gone? Well, that’s going to require a big leap of faith that won’t be easy or without repercussions. How can anyone refuse a dying mother such a heartbreaking request? Tess is torn between doing right by the child and acknowledging that another woman has given the man she loves something she may never be able to—a child. As the woman pulls Cash closer into her emotional circle, it is Tess who becomes the outsider, and soon she wonders if the woman has secrets she’s not telling.

More than one resident is suspicious of anyone who drives a wedge between one of Magdalena’s favorite couples. The newcomer may look and act like the girl next door, but something isn’t right, and Pop Benito is going to gather ammunition and find out what that something is. But he’d better do it fast, before it’s too late.

And Cash isn’t the only one who’s gotten a visitor from his past. Pop Benito encounters his nemesis and is forced to face some hard truths about himself and the choices he made years ago. It’s going to be one very interesting summer in Magdalena! You’re not going to want to miss it!!

Derrick is one of the creatus, created beings who have lived on the earth for more than four thousand years. Many questions surround the origin of these sentient beings who are stronger than humans, eat differently, and live longer. But they were created just as we were, maybe even before us. It is from them we obtain our fairy tales–and our nightmares. They are the reason we believe in superheroes–and monsters. Because…they exist.

In the past, they kept the human race safe from an anonymous distance. But now Derrick must come out of the darkness to save a woman he has no business loving, even if doing so may threaten his entire race.

The Creatus Series is not your normal paranormal story…it’s a realistic romantic mystery based on the myths you’ve heard your entire life. Prepare to believe…

Bonus Material! Creatus includes the prequel: Creatus (They Exist) and a sneak peek at Creatus Rogue.

Scottish-born midwife, Miriam loves her work at a health clinic in rural Afghanistan and the warmth and humour of her women friends in the village, but she can no longer ignore the cracks appearing in her marriage. Her doctor husband has changed from the loving, easy-going man she married and she fears he regrets taking on a widow with a young son, who seems determined to remain distant from his stepfather.
When Miriam acts as translator at a medical teaching camp she hopes time apart might help her understand the cause of their problems. Instead, she must focus on helping women desperate for medical care and has little time to think about her failing marriage. When an old friend appears, urging her to visit the village where she and her first husband had been so happy. Miriam finds herself travelling on a journey into her past, searching for answers to why her marriage is going so horribly wrong.
Her husband, too, has a past of his own – from being shunned as a child to the loss of his first love.

ROMANTIC PICKS #HISTORY #TRAVEL Dumfries Through Time by Allan Devlin and Mary Smith

51pQVlTyIAL._SX348_BO1,204,203,200_

 

Dumfries, a market town in south-west Scotland known as the Queen of the South, is the administrative capital of the Dumfries and Galloway region and has a population of almost 32,000. Dumfries has a turbulent and sometimes bloody history with links to the Roman occupation of Britain, Bonnie Prince Charlie’s failed Jacobite uprising, the colonisation of America and imperialism. Most famously Scotland’s bard, Robert Burns, spent his final years in Dumfries with many places in the town having connections to the poet. Its thriving port trade is now a thing of the past and although once one of the largest tweed producers in the world, it has never been a major industrial centre. The photographs show that much has changed in Dumfries – not always for the better. Some of the photographs in this collection have special poignancy as many historical buildings have been demolished in the name of progress. Doonhamers are proud of their town and its history. Dumfries Through Time hopes to demonstrate the importance of the town’s built heritage and is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of Dumfries.

PRAISE FOR MARY SMITH’S DEBUT NOVEL:

“Mary Smith makes the reader care what happens to every character and leaves us the richer for having read it.”
ROSEMARY GEMMELL (Dangerous Deceit)

“Her characters are complex with layered pasts (Iqbal’s leprosy and the metaphorical and physical scars it has left behind – Miriam’s lives in Scotland and with her previous husband) and uncertain futures…A lovely book which calls for attention.”
JANICE GALLOWAY (This is Not About Me)

“Written with empathy and humour, No More Mulberries provides a fascinating insight into life in rural Afghanistan.”
JAMES ROGERS

“This book might be about Miriam, but it’s Afghanistan which will grab you and hold you.”
THE BOOKBAG

“It is so much more than just a good romantic novel; it has a serious subtext of highly informative passages incorporating colourful detail across the whole spectrum of political and social issues in 1990s Afghanistan. Smith’s ability to manipulate plot and rationalise timelines makes this book a real ‘page turner’ – A triumphant debut as a novelist.”
SUSAN HARVARD

“Beautifully written, full of the sounds, smells, skies of Afghanistan. And written by a woman who clearly loves and respects that country and its culture.”
SHEILA TEMPLETON (Digging for Light)
