Solace From Shadows, the first supernatural romance novel in the complete Heart and Soul series, is a tribute to lost souls who stumble from the shadows of who they were, and into the light of who they were meant to be...

What happens when every moment, tucked within five brief days, becomes a memory? Each touch, and every whisper becomes a soul's sustenance to live, to hold on, when all seems lost? What if these few days were all that remained in the hourglass of a life lived? A day of rescue. A day of discovery. A day of togetherness. Another of resolution. On the last day...is it one of hope or tragedy? Life or resurrection...or both?

After a tragic wreck claims Elaine Pearson's family, she embarks on a solo hiking trek into the Blue Ridge Mountains. She only wants to escape her blighted past and the pain of her broken heart. But through a chance encounter with a protective, mysterious stranger, she is thrust into a world where dark creatures that haunted her childhood nightmares are now stalking her from the shadows...and trailing her up a mountain.

During a summer sabbatical, Duke University geneticist, Dr. Ian Kearney, finds Elaine stumbling along the Bartram Trail alone. His slumbering hybrid vampire/lycan soul slowly begins to awaken, and he is unable to resist or deny the persistent soul stirrings that leave him craving a mate. His forgotten human self, however, is also awakening...and the man within wants everything he knows he shouldn't--her. 


Solace From Shadows introduces Elaine, a young widow trying to make amends with her painful past; and Ian, a unique hybrid embodying both vampire and lycan DNA who is searching for more than the hollow existence he's created among humans. Their struggle to find peace, while coping with a resurrecting past, becomes a test of determination and fortitude when letting go is impossible.

She also recognizes for story flow, readers are encouraged to read the series in order: Solace from Shadows, Light and Shadows, Dark Night of the Soul, and Light Over Dark Water. Each book is not intended as a stand-alone work....

I Didn't Sign Up For This is a story about growing up and making critical decisions that alter one's future path in life. It deals with accepting the consequences of those decisions both good and bad. The central character, J.D. Sims, grows up in remote Western Kentucky on what is now The Land Between The Lakes, (my favorite place in the world), during the period leading up to the American Civil War. His ultimate and fateful decision to enlist  for military duty quickly puts the harsh realities of war and life squarely in his path. This story will take you very deeply into the war as it is seen through J'D.'s eyes. It is a story that deals with a persons deepest thoughts. The war scenes are quite graphic as they describe in brutal detail the suffering, gore, and hardship of combat and it's aftermath. After a massive battle, J.D spends several days and nights in a war field hospital where he witnesses disease, death and copious amputation procedures. His entire war experience leaves him bitterly scarred and terribly conflicted about the world and his own self worth. However his war experiences are only part of his struggle and the ensuing story. At the wars end he is greatly troubled about returning home, feeling that he has been permanently disfigured for the worst and will never fit in. Once their his nightmares are only beginning as he suffers triggered flashbacks and recurring dreams of the past horrors he encountered. He desperately craves the affection and attention of his wonderful and loving friends and family. But he greatly fears himself and the harm he might unintentionally bring to them. The story contains a pure and beautiful 19th century style romance. Although the romance itself is a very rocky and painful struggle for J.D. who feels he is incapable of love for anyone. If you love a pure, strong, and beautiful female character, then Susan is certainly your kind of girl. The story deals much with the history, geography and cultural heritage of the region as well. The book also deals with a very strong and significant spiritual dimension. It is a true roller coaster ride of deep emotional anguish and struggle.While the central character is fictional, the history, geography and cultural information was researched carefully and is very accurate. J.D. actually meets real figures from the war throughout the story. The battle dates and casualty figures are kept accurate with the historical record. A novice could learn much about The American Civil War by reading this book as well as enjoying a good story.  ...

Latest Poem

       
How foolish do you have to be to fall so completely?
Thinking we were lovers,
Now realizing it was nothing.
Forgetting the simple rule,
To look before you leap, 
And living a fool's paradise.
Falling in love with such a mystery,
But having no one to pick you up.
Being led on and on a foolish dream,
Thinking about what may be.
Now realizing your love was fake
And your heart was black.
Confined between hell and paradise in
A vicious cycle.
Bound from aspiration
To a masquerade act.
Clinging to salvation with
Seeds of self-destruction.
Laughter shifts to whispers,
Blinded from illumination.
Revenge forgoes redemption.
This is a fool's paradise.
