Anytime I think of Violet Duke, I picture this ball of positive energy with wings, a wand in one hand sprinkling pixie dust of romance and brandishing with the other a pen to write the most alluring and charismatic of love stories!!!

 

And that brings us to her new “Unfinished Loved Series”, about four brothers who find love but lose only to get another chance down the years to reclaim it. It’s fresh, it’s new and it makes it even more emotional and romantic to wait for that HEA.

BeforeThatNight-UnfinishedSeriesCaineAddison-Jun2016

First in the series, “Before That Night” has a young teenager Addison Millan trying to survive through sheer determination to take care of her younger siblings as they live in a beat up van. Having lost a roof and a mother to drugs, her abandonment only motivates Addison to create a better life. Always with a smile and a kind word, working as a waitress and a caretaker, she adds positivity and courage to her resume.

Her immense strength and smile draws the gruff and tough cop Caine Spencer to the diner everyday and that everyday leads to conversations that turn into friendship and the flare of attraction that kindles between them is kept at bay given the circumstances. But all that changes instantly as Addison gets into the crosshairs of an obsessive diner, blackmailing her with the secret that she’s been hiding.

And that one incident creates a domino effect of consequences even as Addison and Caine fall in love with each other. As her secret see the light of day, it comes down to final straw if Caine is going to go against the oath he had taken as a cop and support Addison. And is Addison brave enough to make the biggest decision of her young life…and if she goes with the choice she’s making, will her love survive…. for a second chance….

Another brilliant, captivating and an emotional love story, all Violet Duke style full of love and care, friendship and support, warmth and family.

Can’t wait to read the second installment “Every Night Without You” as Addison comes back into Caine’s life, the unanswered questions, sacrifice and the love that never died for seven long years!

Susan Sands debuts on the writing scene with “Again, Alabama”; a charming story of woman coming back home to heartache, past memories and a chance to have the life that was once supposed to be hers.

AgainAlabama-SusanSands

Cammie Laroux’s life as a chef falls apart, and she’s back home to rethink and rebuild her life and help her family in the meantime. Coming home also brings her up close and personal with her past love Grey Harrison who is hired to restore their historic mansion. Old feelings surface and Cammie has to decide if Grey is worth breaking her engagement.

Grey Harrison is still in love with Cammie, but circumstances ten years ago forced him to marry Cammie’s best friend and is now a father and a widower. Being with Cammie only reinforces his feelings for her, but he’s got an uphill battle to convince Cammie of his love and regain her trust.

“Again, Alabama” takes time to build interest, yet it is quaint in its own way to hold that interest. For a first time author Susan Sands does a pretty good job in keeping the readers engaged with her narration, although there is repetitiveness in few locations. As much as the story is pleasing on the mind, characters definitely need a little bit more depth and chemistry.
