In order to play with the big kids you have to get a little dirty. It’s the first life lesson she’s learned since the day Amber received an anonymous message from a cyber stalker with the initials ‘TD’ who claims to have Reese in captivity. Play with me. The kidnapper’s demands are simple: No police. No help. No harm. “Just a little game of Truth or Dare and you can have your life back.” At first, it seems like a joke. But when Reese doesn’t return from a mandatory job training on the coast, everything changes. Caught in a twisted game for the cyber stalker’s amusement, Amber must throw away everything she’s learned about caution. First, comes the private chat room. Next is the live stream video where her fiancé begs her to just “play along.” Last, Amber must ultimately decide whether or not to take the final taunt. “It’s easy,” TD swears: I dare you. Come find me…

Jewel of the Gods
Hercules clenched his jaw and balled up his fists. “Do you even hear yourself?” He raised his voice into a mocking tone. “’Poseidon doesn’t allow this. Poseidon prefers that.’ Dear Zeus, Ursula. Have you ever taken a moment to think about what you need? How much longer do you think you will be able to survive under such stifling conditions?”
Suddenly, I was overcome with a sense of shame at myself. I had never taken a step back and thought about what it must seem like to others. There was no way to defend it, either. It was as it seemed. I was my master’s pet. He cared for me, ensured I had my necessities. All he required in return was obedience.
Still, I couldn’t deny Chiron’s earlier claim, either. I had become a stranger to myself in the time I had served Poseidon. There was a time not so long ago when I had harbored fight in my heart. I had to release that independence to save my life, and one way or another Poseidon’s shelter had consumed me until I loved him for it. I hated Hercules for making me question what I had grown so comfortable with. I didn’t want any further complications at the moment.
“It does not matter.” I lifted a chin. “I’m a servant. I have no say in it.”
“You do as long as you are here.” He nodded toward the food in the center of the table. “Eat, or I will starve as well.”

Life isn’t always sweet, even for girls called Candy.
Two years ago, Candice’s life changed in a single night. The apartment she shared with her mother and special-needs son burned to the ground, forcing her to accept the help of a stranger.
Gary Ford, her knight in soot-coated bunker gear, helped to save their lives, then gave them a home so they could recover from the loss. Convincing her to marry him, they wed on this past Christmas Eve, and hoped that their lives had finally hit the plateau we all like to think of as normal.
No such luck.
This Christmas, Gary brings home another stray – a woman who claims to have proof that the fire that destroyed Candy’s previous home, as well as others, had been set on purpose.
Can Gary help Caroline solve the mysterious case of arson before Candy tosses them both out on the street, or will Christmas Carol turn out to be the best friend Candy never had?

CHRISTMAS EVE by Samantha Jacobey
Life isn’t always sweet, even for girls called Candy.
Candice Parker’s life has never been easy. Plagued by losses and setbacks, each day is a struggle for the petite brunette and her young son. Last year, a tragedy forced her to accept the help of a man she had refused to even date. Today, she’s ready to take the next step, but will his rich and powerful mother allow it?
Gerald Ford had always kept things simple. He had lived a fast and furious lifestyle, with no intentions of slowing down. However, when he finally decides he’s ready to take the plunge, it seems that the entire world is conspiring against them. Will his mother, Eve, be their saving grace, or will she be the thing that brings his relationship with Candy to an end?
Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations anywhere at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.
I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.
I backed her against the wall and took her face in my hands. “I’m not leaving you alone.”
Her breath hitched, and her hands wrapped around my wrists, but she didn’t say anything.
I gripped her harder. “You’re not alone, you hear me? You will never be alone. I’m always going to be here for you. Always.”
Her grief, her tears, the tension in her muscles—it all stilled.
Then she stood on tiptoe and her lips landed on mine.
First shock, then eight years of blind fucking need surged, and I let loose. Growling with repressed desire and want, so much fucking want, I roared as I slammed my body against hers and shoved my tongue into her mouth.
Sweet fucking Jesus.
My hands tangling in her hair, my tongue dominating, I didn’t kiss her. I fucking took.
I took her kiss.
I took her grief.
And I took her fucking trust.
For one unbelievable moment, I had everything I’d ever wanted.
My cock surged, my hips ground into hers, and I kissed her how I’d always wanted to. Then reality hit and I destroyed everything.
I ripped my undeserving mouth from hers and stepped back. Shattering her illusion of who I was, I rubbed the back of my hand over my mouth and prayed like fuck I didn’t break her worse. “I’m sorry.”
From Geek to Greek Billionaire
Are you a book reviewer?
Was Alexander dreaming? Was Olivia Moore kissing him? He refused to wake up, ever! As he was about to deepen the kiss Olivia moved away with an expression that told him she had acted on impulse and regretted it.
“The problem with you seems that you’re too modest. You should stop hiding the real you and transfer that confidence,” she nodded towards the podium, “into your personal, romantic life.” She said it in a breathy way as if she was trying to compose herself and was determined to sound professional. But she could not hide the flush of pleasure she had obviously shared during the too-short few seconds of their kiss.
He was growing wings of hope. Maybe she felt more for him than merely as a Samaritan for a doofus client.
“The food’s good, you want to stay awhile?” Perhaps he could muster up some courage to dance with her. She would do it in the name of her ‘responsibility’ to help him.
She nodded. A few minutes later she said, “You obviously have quite a lot of public speaking experience and a huge following.” Her eyes sparkled with respect. “I had no idea you’ve traveled so extensively. I’m beginning to wonder if you really need my help, and if you really are that shy in your personal life.”
Suddenly all he wanted was to tell her the truth about everything. This was his perfect opportunity. About why he was in town, why he had wanted her ‘help’ and about the non-existent Jessica.
The woman I want to woo is you! All I want is you, Olivia, just the way you are. Perfect.
But his throat closed up and he shook inside. Misunderstanding his reaction, the sensitive Olivia touched his hand again and said, “Don’t worry, I’m here. You’ll do just fine tomorrow. Just take some of the energy and drive you had up there,” Olivia pointed to the podium, “and you’ll sweep Jessica off her feet.”
Was that fleeting jealousy he saw within her expressive eyes, or was it his wishful thinking?
As they enjoyed the delicious menu, the pleasure of having her in his arms as they danced was marred by his cowardice. He was not only frustrated with himself but the heat and the rightness of being together fanned his hunger for her and impatience with himself. He wanted to kiss Olivia and hold her so tightly instead of merely dancing with her. He wanted to explore every curve and crevice of her gorgeous body, and quench the desire within him.
What would it take to grow a backbone? Why could he face an army of opposition and controversy in his business, and clam up in front of the soft, generous Olivia?
And what if he was misreading her emotions? Be positive, damn it.
What if by some miracle his purging admission was met by her reciprocating his feelings? What if she also felt their physical attraction and emotional synchronicity? All his brothers had found their own true love; what if Olivia was his one and only?
But he was not the purging type. Despite having meant every word about being fortunate in his family life, he now felt even more trapped within his lie. Olivia was a genuine person who deserved the truth.
What could he do now and not risk losing Olivia again?

HOLIDAY HAPPINESS STARTS WITH CHANGE
by Bever-leigh Banfield
It’s no secret that Santa likes good boys and girls, however there is quite a lesser known fact – that the key to holiday happiness is willingness to change. Uncle Harry may make off-color jokes at the holiday table every year, but this year, he doesn’t have to. You may have received granny panties from your grandmother since you were ten years old, but what if she flipped the script this time and gave you an Amazon card instead? Maybe your brothers and sisters bicker relentlessly causing you searing pain every time you jet home for the holidays. And maybe that pain has caused you to act in a manner you aren’t so proud of but you nevertheless undertake year to year.
Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. When difficulties rear their heads – from obstacles at work to tricky romantic entanglements you may encounter – all you have to do is change. And changing is often must easier and faster a process than you might think. When you change your thoughts, you change your feelings, and subsequently your behavior will change. You are the Thinker thinking your thoughts. You have total and utter sovereignty over everything filtering through your mind. You are The Changer and you are The Change. Change can occur in the blink of an eye, and when you change, you change your world.
We are emitting vibrations with every thought, word and deed we bring into your environments, whether we know it or not. Whether we accept that fact or take responsibility for the repercussions we may cause depends on who we want to be and if we decide to think, feel and believe from our highest evolving self.
You can turn on a dime from whatever isn’t working for you and those you touch and decide to switch up into what does work, even if you are not sure what that is. You can banish a negative thought in an instant, replacing it with a lofty one. You can chase away any unwanted emotion by feeling a loving one instead. You change like everything else in the cosmos. Even the reaches of outer space are expanding by birthing new stars and planets into the burgeoning billions of galaxies beyond our comprehension.
You were born to change the world, and you’re meant to do that from the inside out. Change, my friend, is an inside job. You’re doing it all the time, in fact, so it’s best to do it consciously. Once you decide to be a beneficent force, you are unstoppable. Try it this holiday, and you’ll see. You have a magical mojo within you, capable of transforming yourself, your life, and everything that exists. And here is how to start:
· Decide you want to change, that you’re willing and ready, and this is your time.
· Identify things you need to change. Call them out. Nail them down, whatever they are. Meditate on it if you don’t know what they are. Change can set you free.
· Commit to immediately implementing change so you can be healthier, happier, stronger, more at peace. Commit to being a benefit to others and serving the greater good. You’re vital, you matter, you have an effect.
· Dream a humongous ginormous dream that will make the world a better place. Set goals that can bring about lasting change for everybody everywhere. Your dream already exists somewhere, and it’s ready for you to call it forth.
· Make a plan and act on it. Brainstorm the steps you need to take. Jot down the ideas that pop into your mind. You may only be able to see the first step when you start. Keep going. Your plan will take shape.
· Determine the tasks you’ll undertake to execute your master plan. Be sure to set priorities and do what’s most important first. Inspire a team to help you build.
· Persevere no matter what twists and turns may appear along your winding path. No matter what people say or do, be brave, consistent, flexible, and inventive. Believe you’re the one for the job. Learn everything you need to know, and keep going until your dream comes true.
There’s someone you are meant to be and something you are meant to do. Go out and change the world!
