ROMANTIC PICKS #SINISINTHEAIR #NEWRELEASE

IT’S HERE! THE WAKING BELL!

From USA Today bestselling author Jackie Weger and author Jerri Hines comes a powerful southern saga. Set against the backdrop of World War II, this gripping page-turning mystery will have you reading through the night.

Sin is in the air…

August 1943. The revival has come to the small Appalachian Mountain town Oak Flatt. The gospel is preached, and hymns fill the air, reawakening hope for those crowded beneath the big-flap tent. Cady Blue is there, praying for the soldiers fighting in the war raging overseas, for those less fortunate, and for the bells to cease—bells no one hears but her.

In a town where most consider her a simpleton, Cady Blue has a strange sense of foreboding when secrets threaten the very soul of the town. A missing child. A mysterious death. Clandestine love affairs… Whispers abound, splitting the mountain people and the townsfolk further apart. Cady Blue finds herself torn between the two sides when she discovers an attraction to the town war hero, Matt Pritchard.

Despite assertions that the threat is in the past, Cady Blue realizes that something is still very, very wrong. She can feel a lingering evil that threatens her chance for happiness. And she must uncover the deadly truth before it’s too late.

ERIK’S REVELATION ~ $0.99~ NEW RELEASE

When Erik Belgarde sets off to find the truth about his past, he encounters Kimi Bennett, a woman running from her present…

Erik remembers the day Adam Belgarde brought him home to Claire Belgarde and his new brothers. Erik grew up with everything a child could want: a mother and father who loved him, who came to his rescue when he had night terrors, who greeted him with the same loving smiles and hugs they offered their own children. The love of his adopted family had made it possible for Erik to suppress the memory of the couple screaming at each other, waiting for their wrath to turn his way. As far as he knew, his real parents had died in the woods, and Adam Belgarde had rescued him. Now he discovers it was all a lie… The Belgardes lied to him from the beginning. Why?

While searching for answers about his past, Erik witnesses a runaway horse and runs head-on into Kimi Bennett — literally — while trying to rescue a child. Although Erik and Kimi constantly butt heads, he can’t help but admire how she loves horses and his beautiful home state of Alaska.

When authorities start asking questions about the new horse whisperer in town, though, and Kimi disappears, Erik realizes their future together is what matters most and calls on his Midnight Sons brothers to find Kimi before her past catches up to her.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Suspense and sensual romance are expertly combined in this riveting story.” — AVP (Sam’s Folly)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “An escape into the remote wilderness, with scenes that’ll take your breath away and characters you can’t help but love.” — TOP 100 VINE VOICE (Alex’s Atonement)

Decker Davenport is on a deadline. He has thirty days — Christmas Eve, to be exact — to remodel a St. Augustine Victorian house or the owner will put it back on the market. Not a good time for Decker’s decorator to take off on a honeymoon, leaving him with Annalise Owens, a stand-in with a malaise he isn’t privy to.

But as he watches Annalise work miracles on the house and his daughter, he realizes the two of them have bonded in some ethereal way, as if they’ve always known each other.

As Christmas Eve approaches, Decker still sees the curious malaise in Annalise’s eyes. A haunting that even his kiss can’t take away. What secret does the new woman in his house possess? And will learning Annalise’s secret bring him and his daughter joy, or tear their world apart?

From the #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Debbie Macomber comes a beautiful repackage of the classic novel that started it all.

Wishes for love bring hope from above.

Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy—three willing but sometimes wayward angels—are each given someone’s prayer to answer . . .

Shirley: She’s sent to help nine-year-old Timmy Potter, who longs for a new father. And although his mother, Jody, has vowed never to trust any man, Shirley is determined to help her love again.

Goodness: She knows Monica Fischer longs for a husband and home of her own, but the young woman has practically given up on finding the right man to stand by her side . . . until Goodness steps in to help.

Mercy: Can Mercy bring hope back into Leah Lundberg’s life? This maternity nurse desperately wants a child to fill up the home she’s made with her husband, Andrew.

But there’s just one catch: Each angel must teach her charge a memorable lesson before the prayer can be granted . . .

Twenty-four-year old Phoebe Hawley is on a quest to find her family a home. On the road with two siblings, twelve-year-old Maydean and five-year-old Willie-Boy, Phoebe is out of money, out of gas, and out of patience. The only things she owns in abundance are backbone and pride–neither of which she can trade for food or gas.

A collision with Gage Morgan puts Phoebe’s mission in even worse jeopardy–until Phoebe discovers Gage owns the perfect place for her clan. However, she soon discovers that Gage is the unlikeliest man in the universe to offer a helping hand.

Phoebe wields all the country smarts she owns to worm her way into Gage’s heart, but nothing works. With time running against her family, she plies one last inducement–her scarce feminine wiles.

Small town romantic women’s fiction with love, hope, second chances, and a happy ending!

Note from Mary:

I love secondary characters: writing them, reading about them, even watching them on the big screen. Secondary characters support the “stars”; make them more vibrant and compelling. But when the story ends, I’m often left wondering what they’d do if they were in the “spotlight”. That’s why I’ve created special boxed sets that were part of That Second Chance series and the Truth in Lies series. These boxed sets let the reader follow the before and after of select characters as they first appear in That Second Chance series and later in the fictional town of my bestselling Truth in Lies series. Boxed Set One contains Pulling Home and A Family Affair: The Promise. I invite you to follow their journey!

Pulling Home

She’ll risk anything to save her child…even the truth.

It’s taken nine years and a cross-country move, but Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept her secrets safe. She’s created the perfect life: a husband who loves her, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for an award-winning daytime soap. When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and the man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

Jack Wheyton is a successful pediatric neurosurgeon who is about to become engaged when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter. He forgave his brother long ago for taking something that had been his, something he hadn’t even realized he wanted until it was gone. But forgiving Audra is another story…and forgetting her? Near impossible.

When a shattering illness strikes Audra’s daughter, she turns to Jack to save her child and risks exposing a secret that will change their lives forever.

A Family Affair: The Promise

There’s a new man in Magdalena, one badly in need of a second chance…

Grant Richot sprinted through life, a boy wonder with talent, intelligence, confidence, and charm. He never doubted the world awaited him, just as he never doubted the right woman would come into his life—but only when he was ready for her. Anyone before that was simply preparation for the one.

How wrong he was.

Years and a tragedy later, Grant arrives in Maggie Finnegan’s hometown of Magdalena, New York—broken, uncertain, and searching for that second chance with the woman he cast aside. But Maggie’s no longer naïve and impressionable; she’s a confident, competent widow with a child, who has more at risk than another broken heart…

Bree Kinkaid is dealing with heartache and betrayal the only way she can—denial. Her friends can’t help her, she won’t listen to her parents, and she rejects offerings of support and sympathy from the town as she attempts to hold onto that magical life she wanted. But when a stranger shows up at Bree’s doorstep with information about her husband, she can’t pretend any longer…

I’m going on hiatus for a couple of weeks. Hope you enjoy!

SPECIAL AGENT SOPHIA ~ NEW RELEASE

Sophia’s mane of silver hair gives her the look of a mystical warrior, a female not of this world. Some colleagues defend her, others are jealous, most fear her, yet everyone respects her abilities. An ace sharpshooter, she’s called on for the most difficult cases. Her uncanny ability to remain cool under duress makes her the perfect person to rescue the twins of the frantic governor whose rejected husband intends to make her suffer. The fact that they are whisked to Greece also works in her favor since she’s spent most of her summers in Rhodes visiting family and can show up there without anyone becoming suspicious. Problems begin when a cocky hero hits on her in the marketplace. Why her?

Sam Reagan, owner, and CEO of The Reagan Group promises his sister he’ll follow the FBI agent to the Greek island to ensure his niece and nephew are safely returned to her arms. Understanding his mission has to be covert because his former brother-in-law will recognize him, he uses an alias and follows the gorgeous agent who’s on the case. It’s understood he stays in the background, gives assistance if needed… until he sees her. Then all bets are off. There’s no way he’ll leave her to deal with dangerous traffickers after she saves a teenager hooker and whisks the poor girl away right under their noses.

Digging deeper, working together, they discover the consortium of criminals is more organized than they first believed. And the man running the operation is the same low-life loser who fathered the missing twins.

The two are constantly at each others throats. Contract or not, Clara is done with this creature of the night and world of darkness. She runs, but Alaric won’t let her escape.

Recognizing things cannot continue as they are, Alaric makes a deal with her: If she can draw a single drop of blood from Alaric, he will consider her debt paid. But if she attempts and fails, she owes him. The price of her failure? A simple kiss. One that could change everything as she feels her attraction to him growing.
