Currently living in Central New Hampshire, I love to cycle, travel, take pictures and write. There is nothing more interesting to me than ease-dropping in on a conversation. From this, I can imagine all types of stories unfolding.....
General Mark Cohen had finally retired from a long and successful career with the British Army. It was apparent at a young age his witty daughter, Maggie, housed more of his suspicious gene’s then the softer, more accepting ones of his wife. Maggie, got into more dirty business than any young lady should. During her adult life, it escalated to where he had to run between her and the law several times.
While working at the University of Bristol, Maggie’s interference this time lands her smack dab in the center of a major terrorist cell, trouble with her father and an irritating, handsome Lieutenant Colonel.
Called out of retirement for his past services working highly successful covert operations, Lieutenant Colonel Douglas “Hawk” Hawthorne needs to meet Maggie. She’s on the “watch list” with the Ministry of Defense – i.e., MoD and he must gain the INTEL needed regarding her involvement before moving forward in his mission.
When the revelation that Maggie’s father is one of Hawk’s former commanders, retired General Mark Cohen, he soon realizes more is at stake than the wrath of a former boss.
But Maggie does indeed have a penchant to get her nose into places others cannot. Gaining intelligence and important details. Hawk needs her and must work with her, an Israeli partner, the General and others to close this cell down and bring their members to justice before more people are killed.
But working so close has its promises and issues. Issues Doug is not ready to accept as he and Maggie’s relationship escalates at a rapid pace.
But, when she disrespects direct orders from him and her father, all their worlds are propelled into a deeply dangerous arena to save her life.
But at what final cost between the two of them?
Down East Desires is set in one of the most remote, yet lovely areas of Down East Maine. The small fishing village of Lubec. Splash in a dash of the neighboring Canadian Island of Campobello, the FBI, swindling, a lively aunt, and handsome marine biologist and you have all the makings of a suspenseful, yet beautiful story.
At the ripe age of six, Amelia Rhodes spent more than a decade at her Aunt Irene’s cottage in Lubec. Hours upon hours in this craggy, cliffside town enjoying the delights of an oceanside village. It was here that a young girl’s imaginary delights focused on one lad in particular. Simon Bradford.
Yet, encounters with Simon over the years were deeply ingrained upon her heart. It truly was a growing young girl’s crush on an older boy that never dampened. Not even as the years passed.
After college, her trips to Maine stopped. But then a twisted turn of events involving her Aunt Irene’s retirement, property and business forced Amelia to return. To investigate who was making an offer and ensure it was all above board.
Irene needed Mel’s help. Her CPA background. But more than that she just needed her to come back to Lubec. To a place, Mel loved above all other. Return to a village that needed her. Return to a man that needed her even more. Especially now.
It only took twenty-four hours for Samantha Arneson’s world to change drastically and there was no logical explanation for it. Divorced, forty and needing a complete change, she ditched a logical, safe world back in England and took off exploring other parts of Europe.
A rather embarrassing circumstance in Venice propels Sam into a bold interaction with a handsome stranger. Had she left things alone her safe little life would have continued. But it was not her destiny. A passionate kiss transcends her right into his world of 1865.
Was it irrational, destiny, or a bump on the head?
With no apparent possibility of returning back, it all simply starts to unravel.
As book two continues, Sam finds herself thrust into an uprising in modern day Egypt with bold, daring cameraman, Derek Clash. They team up brilliantly. But it’s clear he has an agenda that extends beyond just helping her. Somehow, he’s entangled with more than one person from her Victorian past.
With assistance from strange outside sources, a small group of ex-military men turned mercenary and the good sisters of a small leper monastery, Sam and Derek soon discover how intense their connection really is.
Separately, Adam moves on a different path and passages. But along the way, he realizes how important Sam has become to him. Finally, they intertwine on a journey that brings them both to internal discoveries that are far beyond anything a great imagination could ever conjure.
But her past won’t lay silent. In fact, it’s drawing her closer and closer to an event that will take them both down the dark tunnel of their soul’s journey. Back in time to a powerful Egyptian dynasty. Their future, their love, and the existence of others hinge on how they both act and react during this period.
