Title: Road to Addison
Series: Leading Road, book 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 12, 2018
Cover Designer: RMGraphX

At fourteen I made a choice that changed my life.
For the last eight years I’ve held on to the fear of being left behind.
I never thought I would find love. Never believed I would find someone who
would change the course of my life. But it wasn’t just my life. It was my son’s too.

Worthless, unwanted, starved.
That was what I grew up feeling. Grew up being told.
I gave up on the white picket fence and Prince Charming at an early age.
I only ever felt worthy of my sisters’ and grandparents’ love.
Could I fight for my own self-worth?
Could I have Prince Charming?
The baby I dreamed of?

Will Warren face this fear and fight for what he desires? Can Addison overcome her past to make her dreams come true? Will they work together for what might be their forever?

Veronica has lived all her life in a Texas border town where she alternates between her hobbies of reading, cooking, and landscaping. She’s a sucker for fast cars (especially the ’71 Hemi Cuda), and has a love for good whiskey even though just the smell is enough to get her drunk.

She surrounds herself with good, outgoing people who value loyalty and family, and likes to write those character traits for her readers. Her addiction to contemporary romance began in her late teens, and she’s never looked back.

Blue’s life is in shambles. 

He has to fight off his MC brotherhood on a drug problem threatening his town, balance his time as a father while dealing with a vicious custody battle with his ex, and somehow manage the huge load of responsibilities of his job.  All the while, he is fighting his attraction to the quiet shopkeeper who lives just across the street from him.  The last thing he wants is to take her down with him.

Psalm’s life is uneventful.

Finally healed after the heartache of losing her husband, kind-souled Psalm throws herself into her store and rescuing dogs. Her crush on Blue can be traced back to high school so many years ago, and even after being widowed, she still carries a torch for him.  From the sidelines, she aches for Blue and his children. With her caring nature, she reaches out to him, over and over again, even when he pushes her away. Is Psalm’s heart strong enough to take on this broken man and heal him?

“Good morning, Deputy.”
“Mornin’, Psalm. Thought I said last night you can call me Blue.”
I took a sip of the delicious brew and let it roll across my tongue. Pam was a coffee master!
“I think since you’re in uniform, I should probably call you Deputy. I wouldn’t want anyone to get the idea I get preferential treatment.”
Blue took a sip from his own cup and one corner of his mouth raised. “I’ll still ticket you if you mess up, Psalm, but maybe you’ll pay with somethin’ besides money.”
My insides quivered at his reply and I was at a loss for words until he opened his mouth again.
“I may charge you soap bars and those bath things. Christmas is comin’ and I know Mama likes bubble baths.”
I smiled and dropped my eyes to the floor.
“Mind if I ask you something personal?” 
His question had me looking up again.
“How come your parents named you Psalm? I remember you were the only one in high school with that name. It’s nice, but it ain’t common.”
I smiled. “I don’t mind answering. Mom wanted a Bible name and shuffled through a bunch of them. Esther, Hannah, Naomi, Mary, lots of them but couldn’t choose. When she went into labor with me, she was reading in the book of Psalms and decided it was a sign that was what she was supposed to name me.”
He drank more coffee and nodded. “Makes sense to me. Unique and pretty-sounding. Suits you.”
The heat of a blush crept across my face and I dropped my eyes again, making an acknowledging hmm sound.
“You got stuff to ship?”
I nodded while taking another healthy swig of my drink. “Every day. Now that I have the website, I get a lot of online business. It’s a pain, but it’s a nice problem to have.”
He grunted, tilted his head, and swallowed the last of his coffee. I watched his throat work with fascination.
“Let’s get to it then.”

The Dragon Runners Series

(book 1)

(book 2)

I've had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I'm a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it's only fitting I should write a few myself!  

I've spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn't mean I'm pigeon-holed into one mold.  I've been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring.  As one of my students said to me once, "Life's too short to ignore the opportunities."   I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world.  I hope you enjoy it!

A high school English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay's the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay's goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she's done her job.

Lindsay's hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

 When a shifter and a human are bound by fate, neither man knows if their connection will be enough to save not only their growing love, but their lives.

Shahin Halcón has been taught that if and when he meets his soul mate, he’ll know immediately. Always the rebel, he doesn’t believe it until the day he crosses paths with Cai, a full-human.

Plagued by unsuccessful relationships and heartache, Cai Banes’s life is quiet and unexciting. When he meets young and wild Shahin, his life is turned upside down, and he's not sure he likes it.

But neither can deny the powerful pull that draws them together.

Old secrets and ancient myths about cross-species relationships plague their romance and threaten to put their happiness and life at risk. Will their love for each other be strong enough to survive?
The Halcóns had a saying, “Once you meet him, you’ll know.” Shahin had never really believed it, choosing to do everything in his power to prove the absurdity of such belief. Even as he watched the other man maneuvering the blue car smoothly out of the tight space and driving away, his mind rebelled against such a notion.

Cai followed the same routine every day. He woke up at dawn and sat at the bay window, coffee in one hand, tablet in the other. By eight, his well-dressed, tall figure left the house, a woolen scarf wrapped casually around his neck, and walked down the street a couple blocks to the local Starbucks for his second cup of the morning. His car, a sensible, no-frills Corolla was always parked on the assigned parallel parking line along the sidewalk, a few doors down from his house.

From above, Shahin followed Cai’s long trench coat as he entered the car, an impressive figure even from that high. The metallic blue of his car was easy to track and Shahin flew after it, a little guilt gnawing on his conscience, but curiosity and fascination for the orderly life of the man who had caught his eye had won. Who was he kidding? Cai had caught more than just his eye. The six-foot-five man with the silver hair had grabbed his heart and held it with an iron fist. Even if he wasn’t aware of it at all.

Deep inside he knew. Despite a lifetime of fighting against it, believing it to be a simple old wives’ tale, he knew. Cai was his soul mate.

The irony was not lost on him as he hovered over the car at a distance, the strength of the pull urging him on. The fact that they hadn’t even met yet was a bit of a problem too. Stalking the man from the skies did not qualify as courtship even among Shahin’s people. But was it really stalking if he didn’t invade Cai’s privacy, never watching him within walls? God, he hoped not, because that would brand him as a seriously creepy individual.

Cai didn’t have far to go to his destination, a small building in old town Manassas. He always parked in the street and walked the few extra yards to the door of his office, a graphic artists’ studio above a restaurant. Before crossing the threshold, the tall man took a last long sip of his coffee, threw the cup in the trash can by the door, and pointing his keys toward the car, locked it.

Shahin circled over the building, the need to follow Cai inside burning in his chest. Not even the cold wind, buffeting his face and body, distracted him from the larger-than-life attraction—the magnetic pull of a soul mate. He circled around a few more times, a strange, longing sound escaping his throat, before spiraling upwards and away. It was time he met his mate.
