Now, six years later, Loreley is recovering from a painful tragedy that almost killed her.

When I came out of the store (…), I stopped to admire the black Challenger parked at the curb. Challengers were sweet. Not as sweet as my 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, but still, they were nothing to sneeze at. They were pretty unusual in Cedar Creek. Especially at this time of year. It was early summer and camping season was starting, so the town was usually filled with big SUVs that could pull trailers, not sexy sports cars. The driver’s door opened and my heart stopped for a second before it restarted and beat in overtime as I saw the person emerging. 
It was Jason.
He threw the door shut and leaned against the side of the car, his arms crossed on his chest and his sunglass-covered eyes fixed on me as if he expected me to come to him.
Jason was not someone I wanted to deal with this morning or today or ever.
I looked away from him and drank some more water as I started walking past him, initiating my strategy to ignore he existed like I had told Chris and Rick last night I would. 
But Jason didn’t let me.
He walked towards me and started right where he had left off last night: lying to me.
“Where did you get the idea I cheated on you?”
I kept walking without answering him. I wouldn’t let him rile me up again.
“Where, Loreley?”
I took another drink of water and carried on towards my house when just like last night, a hand on my arm stopped me.
“Don’t touch me, Jason. Go away. I don’t want to talk to you.” I snapped.
He let me go immediately. What he didn’t do was leave. Instead, he moved closer, and I had to force myself not to take a step back.
“Fine. I won’t touch you, but you gotta talk to me. I swear to God I never cheated on you. If someone told you I did, they were lying—” His boldness of approaching me and confronting me as if he had a right to infuriate me. Chris had been right. Jason wouldn’t let me ignore him. So I broke my promise and got riled up.
“Tell me, Jason.” I interrupted him, “What is it you are trying to accomplish here? Why are you here in my town, tracking me down, following me, lying to me? What is it you want from me?” 
“I told you last night. I wanted to apologize. I was a dick and an asshole and lost you because of it. I’ve regretted saying those words to you every single day, Loreley, I’ve missed you every single day.”
“That’s it? That’s what you came here to do? Apologize and tell me you missed me? All right. Consider your mission accomplished. You can leave now.” I started to turn away from him again, but he stepped around me and blocked my way.
“That’s not all I wanted to say.”
“Then what is it? Spit it out so we can get this charade over with and I can forget about you again and get back to living my life!”
Jason ground his teeth and clenched his fists. Then he moved in even closer and said through his clenched teeth, “I love you and I want you back. I have wanted you back since the moment you walked away from me six years ago. I get now why you didn’t answer any of my calls that day if you thought I fucked someone else. But I swear, Loreley, I never did. I never cheated on you. I loved you too much to hurt you like that. I still do. I want you back.”

All About Julia Goda

I have been writing stories in my head since I can remember. Much to my teachers’ dismay, given the task of writing a short essay I would always come back with way too long and detailed stories. Many discussions (I have always been somewhat of a smart-aleck) and bad grades were the result, so that for most of my life I thought I couldn’t write worth a damn and pursued other careers. But the dream of being an author wouldn’t be ignored and kept lingering. With a little help from my fantastic husband, who gave me the necessary kick in the behind, I was finally brave enough to start writing my first novel and finished it only a few short weeks later—well, the first draft, that is. The seal was broken.

My novels jump genres and touch on all kinds of different topics, but the things I try to focus on no matter what are romance, strong women, and a good sense of humor.

Now, when I’m not in my writing cave, spinning the tales that have been hounding me or editing (yes, I am also a professional editor, guess that degree in Literature and Linguistics turned out to be useful after all!), I enjoy reading, drinking coffee, eating good food, and listening to rock music.

Healing Teaser 1
“I’m real glad I met you tonight, Anna. I’m looking forward to our date Tuesday night. I normally work late on the last day of demo so I can take my time and make sure everything that needs attention gets it. But knowing I’ll see you, well, that’s plenty of incentive to cut out early.” His words took me by complete surprise. The double meaning dripped from them. I know I had not given any signals that this was a date. Hell, he knew about Roman! Why didn’t that drive him off like every other man? I do not have the time or desire to worry about a man, no matter how good it felt when he touched me.

I stared down at my shoes, afraid that if I looked him in the eye I would change my mind, “I had a nice time tonight, Noah, but I’m sorry if you thought Tuesday was a date. I don’t do that, date I mean. I don’t have time. There’s the store, not to mention, Roman? There’s too much going on to add a man into my life.” Why was I rambling? I don’t trip over my words; I make things plain and simple. I make the rules, and rule number one is no dating.

“Anna,” My head popped up, and I locked eyes with him, “it’s a date. I am attracted to the woman I met tonight. I want to get to know her and see how this goes. We’re going to have a good time and eat some first-rate food. You can tell yourself it’s not a date all you want, if that makes you feel better, but it’s a date. I get where you’re coming from, you’ve got a lot going on, but I’m stubborn when I want something.” His words should have upset me. I should tell him to forget about dinner, and Christine and Craig could just go out, but none of that happened. Nope, I just stood there, with my jaw hanging open as he brushed his lips against my cheek and whispered against my skin, “See you soon.” I was still standing there, staring at the door a full minute after he was out of sight.

A standalone Contemporary Romance novel by

Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


Read Chapter One of Cocky Bastard HERE: http://bit.ly/1MCrJk9

cocky bastard cover.jpg


He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska.

A sexy, cocky, Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive.

When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually-tense nights in hotels and taking unplanned detours.

My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

I wanted him, but Chance wouldn’t make a move. I thought he wanted me too, but something was holding him back.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the cocky bastard, especially when I knew we’d be going our separate ways.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
