Wooed and seduced by Mr. Perfect, a young woman suspects deception when she conceives a long awaited child. OF LOVE & DECEPTION is a suspense-filled romance complete with secrets and intriguing mystery. It will have you on the edge of your seat!
Fans of Fatal Attraction will enjoy OF LOVE & DECEPTION.
This book was born from the author’s passion of writing angst filled romances with a dash of suspense. We picture Megan Fox as the main character.
This is also available on Nook.
You’re a slave to your fear, to your past until you can travel down that road, the one that takes you to the places where love, lies, jealousy, pain, laughter, delusions, and yes, deception, split your paths until everything collides and comes crashing back together.
As an author, I don’t follow trends. All my work is my own and never created off another author/authors work. To compare it would be’ to compare apples to oranges’.
I love to read as much as I love to write. I rarely watch TV, but my favorite movies are anything Julia Roberts or Susan Sarandon in them and of course, Johnny Depp or Leonardo Decaprio Titanic is an absolute favorite.
EXIT UNICORNS is a powerful epic about the Troubles in Northern Ireland during the 1960s. While this book is about Irish history, it is also the story of people who live inside that history, with all the foibles of humanity—love, hate, revenge, joy and sorrow. They are the story of marriages, friendships and lives lived out under the weight of an extraordinary history in an extraordinary country.
Fans of Diana Gabaldon, Leon Uris, and Colleen McCullough will love EXIT UNICORNS.
EXIT UNICORNS was inspired by the author’s Irish heritage and her desire to know more about it. Colin Farrell would star in this book, if it ever was a movie.
This is available on May 2.
In Belfast there is tea, tepid and scummy, a bottle of Powers whiskey half drunk in a doorless cupboard, a nicotine stained copy of the Proclamation of 1916 lining a drawer in a desk rarely used. Paint peeling walls, a cot without sheets for men on the run, men who sleep briefly during the brightest hours of day and flee at night with messages, with guns, with the hope of a nation in their hands. Men on intimate terms with fear, exhaustion, dirt, a rebel Celt version of the White Rabbit, running, running, forever madly running, with the vision of a cell in the not too distant future. Not a job for the easily disillusioned or the romantic of heart, not a job for a human being.
Ireland is one of the grand passions of my life, writing is another, so when the time came to get serious about my life’s work the two things were a very natural fit. I wanted to tell the story of Northern Ireland though, and for whatever reason it was the modern era of the Troubles that called to me most strongly. The characters have been with me for a long time, and feel like family to me now. A reader once said to me that these characters felt so real to her that she was certain they had existed somewhere, some time and had chosen me to tell their story. I often feel that way myself, I just get out of the way and let them tell their story through me.
These books are Irish history, yes, but they are also the story of people who live inside that history, with all the foibles of humanity–love, hate, revenge, joy and sorrow. They are the story of marriages, friendships and lives lived out under the weight of an extraordinary history in an extraordinary country.
These books will appeal to anyone with Irish ancestry, I believe. I get many letters from around the world telling me that the reader had no idea about Irish history before, I also get a lot of letters telling me the characters feel like family or very dear friends now, which is my favourite compliment.

A man’s arm steadied her. She turned and faced his neck and tailored shirt. A whiff of magnetic danger, woodsy with a hint of spice, drew her gaze up. The corners of the CEO’s panther grey eyes wrinkled. A jolt of panicked adrenaline shot through Jen. What if he recognized her? Jen’s cheeks simmered. “I, uh, have work to do. My backpack…” She reached for it, but he grabbed it and held it behind his back. “You just checked a minute ago. It’s okay to have fun with your family. I’m not that much of a slave driver, am I?”
Rachelle lives with her husband in California. She has a nonstop imagination and loves drama. While her real life is calm and satisfying, she puts her characters through pain and torture while dangling the promise of a love so rich it is worth risking all for. “I love challenging plots and crossing boundaries. You’ll find characters striving for victory while overcoming physical and emotional obstacles. I sprinkle humor here and there, and of course there is romance and the sweet hope of forgiveness and love ever after.”
Favorite Food: I love all kinds of food and mix it all up in my cooking: soy sauce with chili powder, lemon grass and oregano, ketchup and fish sauce, turmeric and sage. So you might just call it international or fusion creative cuisine.
Favorite Music: I don’t usually listen to music, but my tastes range from classical violin to salsa to bluegrass to Bollywood to rap and hip hop. My playlists are similarly fused from around the world. I think it all goes back to living in the International Living Center while in college. I’ve lived within multi-ethnic communities all my live and delight in sharing the food, traditions, music and emotions of the people around me.

Gina Robinson lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and children. She loves humor, romance, suspense, and spies. Not necessarily in that order. She writes spylicious romance, contemporary and historical romance, humorous thrillers, and women’s fiction. If she could meet just one fictional spy, she’d be hard pressed to choose between James Bond and Max Smart. in her opinion, the perfect spy would be a combination of the two. Most days she writes while wearing slippers, flip-flops, or tennis shoes, depending on the season. But she loves a great, sexy heel and has a closet full for special occasions. She belongs to Romance Writers of America and International Thriller Writers.

Within the landscape of a quiet, sleepy village in Ontario, Canada, the murder of the school caretaker horrifies the townspeople. For Emily Taylor, the principal, her discovery of the body and the violence of Nathaniel’s death bring back memories of a time and place that she would rather forget.
THE BRIDGEMAN is a mystery that combines both intriguing story lines and twists and turns that aren’t expected with amazing characters and subplots that keep you hooked. Readers of The Ice House, A Taste for Death, and Kiss the Girls will enjoy THE BRIDGEMAN.
The author’s fascination with very ordinary-appearing people who are able to hide a monstrous evil within was the inspiration for THE BRIDGEMAN. Gwyneth Paltrow would make a good Emily.
This is available for $0.99 for Kindle on May 1.
Discovering a dead body in the basement of a small school in the midst of a quiet village is not something anyone would expect, but that’s exactly what happened to me. Not that most people ever envision finding a dead body at all. But I, Emily Taylor, was not exactly most people. This sleepy little town was our haven, our sanctuary, to which my husband and I had escaped from a notorious, tragic past. Not to mention, I was the school principal.
I have been writing since I was seven. Really (fair tales). I love books that are challenging (smart), with lots of twists and turns, have great characters and settings, and which explore the human condition. So that’s what I write! My books are not classic mysteries – they’re more focused on character and setting than usual – but I can promise they are page-turners nonetheless. Once a reader gets involved in an Emily Taylor Mystery, they don’t want to put the book down.
Favorite Food : My favourite food could probably include everything but liver – however, I have a weakness for pasta and carrot cake.
Favorite Music: My musical tastes are eclectic too, though I haven’t listened very seriously to any songs written since 2000.
Favorite TV Show: My absolute all-time favourite TV show is Dexter. (Now that last one is very revealing!)
