Courtney Will always dreamed of finding her Prince Charming and living happily ever after, like in the fairy tales she read as a child. Her dreams were shattered one fateful night when her prince turned out to be her worst nightmare. Burying herself in her job as an editor, Courtney tried to forget her past, and she lost hope of ever finding true love.

Reed Moore’s past filled his world with guilt and anger, and then a mistake in college deepened these feelings. Fearing he will one day repeat his father’s mistakes with the woman he loves, Reed has vowed to never give his heart to anyone.

Reed and Courtney have each spent years building walls to guard their hearts, so when their feelings for one another explode into something unexpected, they argue and throw hurtful words at each other in hopes of avoiding the truth.

Will Reed end up being the Prince Charming Courtney has dreamed of her entire life? Is Courtney the woman who will help Reed move past the guilt and anger, so he can embrace love?

Can their broken dreams become their happily ever after?


"Mr. Moore?” Johnny called out.

Johnny was the high school kid I’d ended up hiring last week to help out for a bit until Layton got back from his honeymoon. Johnny was friends with Ryan, the kid Layton had hired last summer.

I stood up and walked over to the gate. “Hey, Johnny. You get everything done?”

He nodded and smiled. “Yes, sir. Miss Will took Tink out for a ride a little bit ago. Should I stay and help her with the horse when she gets back?”

“Nah. Courtney is a big girl. She can handle it. Thanks, dude. I’ll see you tomorrow after church, right? Mr. Morris will be back in the afternoon, and then you can officially meet him.”

He reached out and shook my hand. “Sounds like a plan, sir.”

He turned and headed off to his old Chevy truck, and I headed back to the chair I had been sitting in. It was so damn hot out, and all I wanted to do was jump in the pool, but damn 
Courtney had me sneaking around, reading this stupid book of hers. I wouldn’t dare tell her I’d bought myself a Kindle, and I had loaded her favorite book on it. I had to know what it was that had always made her want to read it.

It didn’t take me long before I was completely engrossed in Nick and Alexa’s world. I thought I heard a noise, but I couldn’t pull my eyes away from the Kindle. Nick was just about to—

“Whatcha doin’ there?” Courtney whispered into my ear, scaring the shit out of me.

I jumped up so fast that it caused me to lose my balance. I stumbled backward and went right into the pool, Kindle and all.

Courtney started screaming, “No! My Kindle! You asshole, you ruined my brand-new Kindle.”

I looked up at her as she began stomping her feet with her hands flying everywhere, and I couldn’t help but smile.

I quickly removed the smile and started getting out of the pool. “Nice. You’re worried about a stupid-ass Kindle. No, really, I’m fine, Courtney. I didn’t just fall into a pool where I could have possibly hurt myself.”

She stopped jumping around and looked at me. “It’s not like you fell off a building, for 

Christ’s sake. You fell into a pool…with my Kindle!”

She reached for the Kindle, and I swore she wiped a tear away. I shook my head and then pulled my shirt up and over my head. Then, I began unbuttoning my jeans.

“Whoa there, cowboy. Giving me a free strip show isn’t going to make up for the fact that this is the second Kindle that has been destroyed while…”

I pulled my jeans down, and she stopped talking while she moved her eyes up and down my body. The moment she bit down on her lower lip and let out a small moan, I felt my dick jump.

This girl is going to kill me.

Henry Maximus is a super-hero-loving geek and proud of it. He’s also a genius when it comes to business. It’s how he earned the title of CEO of Maximus Gaming … not to mention the billions of dollars in his bank account. Henry’s tried living the life of a bachelor, but a different girl every night has left him wanting more. Needing more.

Aubrey Vincent is in love with her job. She’ll love it even more if she lands the promotion that gets her out of her parent’s attic. She loves it so much that she has no time for relationships, not that she was ever very good at them to begin with. Aubrey is perfectly happy with the random, nameless men she picks up at the bar. After a brief encounter with Aubrey on a business trip, Henry packs his bags and moves back to the small town where he grew up. Aubrey’s town. Aubrey attempts to find her way into Henry’s bed, while he tries everything to get into her heart. Will Henry’s plan to break down the walls Aubrey has built around her heart work or will his unbelievable million dollar offer scare her away?

Release Blitz- Surviving Love

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00002]Synopsis“She is my heart and the other half of my life, and now, that life no longer exists." ~Drake Evans, Surviving Love
For Drake Evans, life was once happy. He was living the kind of existence that any man would envy. By his side was the woman he loved and a daughter he cherished. Life was truly perfect, until the day demons from the past came crashing into their perfect world, destroying everything he had been so sure would last forever.
Today, Drake’s life is shrouded in misery. Every day he faces the unyielding pain of losing the love of his life at the hands of a drug dealing murderer. On top of it all, he has to live with the anguishing betrayal caused by the devastating role his brother played in Presley’s death. Gone are the days of carefree happiness and impending futures. They've all been replaced with the shallow emptiness hollowing out his heart and the undeniable rage pumping through his veins. Drake is only moving through the motions of life, raising his daughter and earning a living, in the only way he can tolerate—alone.
Since the day she was banished from her family, Zoe Ledoux lives her life as a free spirit. For the past four years, Zoe’s been moving through life day by day, place by place. She never stays in one area long enough to establish relationships. She refuses to get close to anyone, protecting herself from the fear of once again being left behind. Then a turn of fate sends her to Sulfur Heights where she lands a job working as a bartender.
In a chance meeting, an instant connection forms, bringing together the wounded souls of Drake and Zoe. It is together that they begin to cope; to mend the brokenness of their pasts and feel what it is like to truly live again. However, will their newly formed friendship be enough to pull Drake and Zoe from their dark pasts? Can Drake overcome the fear of losing someone he loves and eradicate his anger just enough to let someone in? Will he learn that Surviving Love with Zoe is what he ultimately needs in order to be happy?

I yank open the door and pull the half empty bottle of whiskey left in the cupboard. Unscrewing the cap, I tip the glass to my lips and allow a few more tears to fall down my face.
“Here’s to the rest of a useless life,” I toast to no one and chug down the whiskey. It instantly burns and calms my insides. The raging ocean of emotions I can’t seem to shake is finally subduing, and it’s welcome. Jack Daniels is always welcome to ease my agony. Always.
I rip my tucked-in shirt from the waistband of my pants and move down the back stairs. The last time I wore this fucking shirt was when I saw Presley in rehab. I will never wear this piece of shit again. Still grasping the bottle, I rip open my shirt, popping buttons as my chest is exposed to the cold, damp air.
I walk to the driveway and see the spot where I last held Presley alive. My boots scuff the pavement when I walk toward the dreaded spot. I hold the bottle to my lips again and chug. Then again and again. It’s burning my gut and suffocating my throat, but I keep gulping it down. My legs give out, collapsing to the concrete. The pain stings when my knees connect with the ground. I relish in it. It’s more welcome than the pain in my heart.
“This is the only way I can get you out of my mind,” I whisper out loud to no one, or maybe to her, but I don’t fucking know. “I need you out of my mind. I need peace for just a day. I love you, Presley, but I just need peace.” I expel a deep breath and choke back another drink. “Don’t hate me, baby, but please…give me some peace.”
I lay down on the cold concrete just as the rain begins to pick up again. I don’t care. I want to be in this spot. I want to be with her. And I want to be numb. I choke back a few more drinks until the bottle is empty then close my eyes, envisioning only her honey-brown irises and the world I will no longer possess. ~ Drake Evans, Surviving Love

Retribution- Missy Johnson

Title: Retribution Genre: Contemporary Romance Organized by: Indie Sage, LLC Release Date: June 17, 2014


I’m a woman on a mission. I make my own rules. I face my own consequences. Much of what I’ve done would horrify you; or at the very least make you wonder why I am the way I am. I’ve been broken one too many times, my confidence and self-worth reduced to nothing. I’ve been lied to over and over again. I’ve been treated like shit for the last time. Now, I take control. I’m no longer the weak, helpless woman you once knew. I am stronger. I am fearless. I don’t care who I hurt. The aim of my game is retribution. If you’ve ever hurt me, I’m coming for you. Not even love is going to stop me.

About the Author

Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she’s a cat, a cat who thinks he’s a dog…you get the picture). When she’s not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.

College was her escape, she could get away and finally live. Her dream was to make it in the New York Ballet Company one day. That for her meant a long road full of hard work and dedication. She didn't have time for distractions, and Levi Klein was definitely a distraction. Will Levi be able to crack through her tough exterior and really see the wounded soul underneath? Becca needs to be loved, but the question is, will she let Levi love her?

Author interview- Jessica Gibson

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Jessica Gibson author of The Harder I Fall

Hi Jessica, thank you for agreeing to this interview. What are your ambitions for your writing career?
I think my ambitions are like most authors, I would love to be on the top 100 on Amazon, and NY Times Bestseller’s List. That would be like a dream. I really just want the write stories that people want to read.

Which writers inspire you?
There are so many. When I was younger, Nora Roberts was my idol, I devoured her books. Now, some of the amazing indie authors out there are doing some amazing things, and it’s so inspiring to see them hit it big.

So, what have you written?
I started out writing paranormal, I have a vampire series called the Blood Ties series, and a YA paranormal book called Haunted U. Then I switched gears and started writing contemporary romance and I have to say I love it. Dressed in White was my first contemporary romance, and now I have The Harder I Fall.

Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?
Becca is so focused, I wish I had some of her drive. She’s also so fragile, you just want to protect her from everything bad in the world.

What are you working on at the minute?
Right now I’m working on The Deeper We Get which is sort of a spin off from The Harder I Fall and features Becca’s brother Chad.

What’s it about?
It flashes forward 4 years from when The Harder I Fall left off and will show Chad finding who he is.

What genre are your books?
Contemporary Romance and Paranormal Romance

What draws you to this genre?
I love contemporary because the characters are so real, and it’s real life situations they are in. With paranormal, I just love the fantasy aspect of creating worlds and different beings.

Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?
Haha, this is actually the first book where I did not have a set cast in my head. The characters were so real to me in my head that I just couldn’t cast them.

How much research do you do?
With this book I actually spoke with a working ballerina so I could get all the terms right. I like things to be as correct and true to life as possible.

Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?
I haven’t, but I think it would be a lot of fun to do it!

When did you decide to become a writer?
In 2011 when my husband told me to get off my butt and actually do it lol.

Why do you write?
I write because the stories need to be told. I love the whole process of seeing the character’s and how they develop.

What is the hardest thing about writing?
The end of the book. I hate saying goodbye

What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?
The Harder I Fall was an emotional book to write, I got wrapped up in it a lot. I sobbed during some scenes.

What is the easiest thing about writing?
The storyline itself, it just sort of flowed out of me.

How long on average does it take you to write a book?
2-5 months, depending on how much time I have.

Do you ever get writer’s Block?
All the time! Which is usually why I write in a few at a time so I can switch to one that is flowing.

Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?
I really do! The book cover will sell your book. A crappy one will cause it to fail.

How are you publishing this book and why?
Indie published, because I liked having the control.

Any amusing story about marketing books that happened to you?
Not as of yet, but I’m sure there will be some in the future.

What’s your views on social media for marketing?
Social media is so important! It’s really the only way we can get our names out there. If you put out a book and don’t do any marketing, you may as well have not put it out at all.

What is your favourite book and why?
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I love the history and the romance.

What is your favourite quote?
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. -C. S. Lewis

What is your favourite movie and why?
Hmmmm, probably Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe or Kiss, Kiss Bang, Bang. I like them both because they are clever and funny.

Where can you see yourself in 5 years time?
Hopefully on top of the charts! I want to be writing still because I love it so much.

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Keep going! Don’t quit. Also, hire a professional editor, and get someone to do an amazing cover for you.

Where do you see publishing going in the future?
I feel like print books will be a thing of the past. E-readers will be where all books will be.

How can readers discover more about you and you work?
