Some secrets should just stay buried. On the day Tristan Morrow is born her mother goes missing, prompting an investigation that produces no solid leads.

excerpt

The faint sounds of a guitar drifted through the walls of my bathroom as I savored the last of the hot water before it became lukewarm. Stepping away from the spray, I turned the shower knob and watched the droplets trickle down the drain. Inhaling a deep breath my mind focused on one thing. Aidan Mitchell. Hearing Mason’s band practicing meant he would be here. I was ninety-nine percent sure Aidan wouldn’t blow off their practice. He knew how serious my brother was about the band, but he also had been avoiding me for days. The past week had been awful. I was determined to talk to him. All I wanted was a few answers. My emotions had run the gamut from confusion, frustration, regret, and sadness… sadness consumed me most of all, at night usually, and I was exhausted from it. But at this moment all I felt was anger. Anger was good. It was certainly better than pain. As I rushed down the hallway, the floorboards creaked beneath my feet and the walls began to vibrate with the beat of Derek pounding on the drums. When I entered my room the music was deafening, but today I didn’t mind. I untwisted the blue-and-white-polka-dot towel from my head and tossed it to the floor. The deep conditioner I used helped my fingers glide through my long damp curls. If I was going to confront Aidan, I wanted to look my best. No Frizzy Lizzie for me. That nickname, coupled with my big butt, had tormented me, growing up in a beach town surrounded by beautiful people. I had longed to look like a typical California girl: tall, blond, perfect. But, with dark hair and bordering on five feet three inches, that was never going to be me. After I blow-dried and flat-ironed my hair, I took off my purple robe and draped it over my desk chair. I slipped on a pair of jeans… yes, slipped them on. I didn’t have to tug, pull, or jiggle my butt to get in my pants anymore. When I easily pushed the button through the top of my jeans, it still made me smile. I couldn’t even count how many times I had to lie on my bed and suck in my stomach so I could zip up a pair of pants. Every time I slipped them on, I never took it for granted. I had worked my butt off… literally. I put on my bra and a green sweater before I pulled on my boots. I rushed downstairs to the door that led to the garage. Thinking about confronting Aidan and having to stare into those piercing blue eyes started to intimidate me. But this was my chance. I knew he was a few feet behind the door, and I needed to deal with him. Before I completely lost my nerve, I inhaled a deep breath and exhaled then pushed open the door. The stream of sunlight coming in through the open garage door blinded me for a moment. With squinted eyes, I made a beeline to the old brown sofa in the corner. My heart was beating so fast it almost seemed in tempo with Derek pounding the drums. I scooted over our yellow Labrador, Maggie, and wedged myself between her and the arm of the couch. Finally, I looked up to focus my attention on Aidan. He didn’t show. I sunk my head back into the cushions, exhaling a deep, long sigh, trying to rid the tension from my body. The guys were practicing their newest song. Indie-Alternative was their style, and they called themselves Random Plan. I glanced at Mason and could tell he was angry. I mouthed the word “Aidan?” Mason just shook his head. “Derek!” The tone in my brother’s voice made me sit up straight. “Derek!” Mason snapped again. Finally Derek stopped and silenced his cymbals. “What?” He lifted the front of his black t-shirt to wipe the sweat from his forehead, exposing his six-pack. His brown eyes bored into Mason’s. “Hey! Just ‘cuz you’re ticked off at the pretty boy, don’t take it out on me.” Derek reached back and grabbed a water from an old bookcase that held a few water bottles, electrical cords, an old CD player, and a collection of CDs. “Hey, Kyle, ya want one?” Kyle nodded and Derek tossed one across the garage to where he stood behind the keyboard. “Mason?” “Yeah, I’ll take one… Sorry, Derek.” Derek gave Mason a head nod and tossed him a bottle. He took a sip while Derek chugged his down. “Okay, start again.” Mason commanded. Derek picked up his sticks and began tapping. I leaned my head back, closed my eyes and listened to the music. Funny, I’d come into the garage so fearless it almost made me laugh. Who would have thought the once-overweight Elizabeth Ryan would stand up to the likes of Aidan Mitchell? I smiled to myself, allowing my mind to drift back to the time when I’d found it hard to even look at him...

Tabitha's Review

I was so very happy to read this book Beautiful One. It was so refreshing to read a current NA
book. The characters were so real and with Cope's writing ability they really grabbed you an suck you in.This has a little bit of everything music, love and heartache. Sweet Liz decides one day that she wants to change her lifestyle and puts her mind to eating healthy and starts running. As time goes by she has lost 40 pounds and looks fabulous. being one to never really be into guys all that much they start checking her out.One in particular was Aiden Mitchell he played in her brothers band and although he was considered a ladies man she was still swept off her feet by him. Liz was a fabulous singer herself but only wanted to sing at Church. Aiden and her brother and the rest of the band really wanted her to sing with them but she was just not that comfortable yet. Until she met the new music director at the Church Spencer Hayes and boy what a man. Spencer loved her voice and decided that he would help her get over her fear so they started meeting once a week. Will Spencer give Liz more than just music lessons or will he fall for her? Will Mr Casanova Aiden sway towards his old ways with others? Be sure to check out this first book in this trilogy. I so cannot wait to read the next ones.

Book Blitz... The Craft Society Of Divination Books I-III

Craft Society banner 2

the craft

Synopsis:

Katerina Deshion is gifted with great power. It is a prestigious honor within the Society that she was born. She has lived with the burden of the responsibility for far too long. Enter Xavian, an angel willing and able to show her what life can be like without the weight of her coven on her shoulders. Freedom comes with a great sacrifice, one that Katerina is willing to pay if it means protecting the ones closest to her. Is she the threat that could tear down the foundation of their Society or is she the key to bringing about their salvation? (Book I) Vivienne Deshion is the eldest and the one that was supposed to receive the “gift” of being The Chosen One. Her sister is given the power that has been passed down through the generations after a great loss. In turn, she is given an even greater burden. She is now her sister’s caregiver, guide and protector. All of the responsibility is too much and she flees to gain some perspective, to live her life for herself for once. Her conscience gets the better of her and she returns to step back into her ordained role. It is just in time to aid her sister in one of the most precarious times in her life. Will Vivienne be able to be everything that is needed, keep her sister safe and hold the secrets that could possibly destroy all that they are to the Society? (Book 2) Evian Deshion has always been the one, the only, the lone child of The Chosen One. He has looked for answers for so many years to who he was, where he came from. The adage “be careful what you ask for” is one that he will not soon forget. The knowledge that he is a Halfling (half angel, half witch) and his mother gave up her rights to raise him to protect him from none other than his father was just the tip of the iceberg. What he finds out next will make those things appear as if he just determined the week had seven days in it. Will all that he learns be the death of him, causing his mother’s sacrifice to be in vain? What role do each of his family members play in his possible impending demise? Just how many family members does he have? (Book 3)

What Beta readers are saying about The Craft Society of Divination:
"Just finished reading beta copy of Craft (Society of) Divination. I wouldn't change a thing. Hope all goes well for Evian with his quest...once I started, couldn't put (it) down. (It) had me from the beginning to the end." "I really like that in the beginning you make Katerina seem cold, distant and unapproachable, but then share her story as a child so we have more empathy for her."

Book Blitz ...Justice For Jenna

rbjfj


justice for Jenna

Synopsis:

I’ve been a b****. I know this. It’s not something that I’m particularly proud of and it’s not something that I had intended to stop being. At least, I hadn’t until recently. I got what older people call “a taste of my own medicine.” I don’t think I deserved that taste. I have lived through a disgustingly dirty sea of pain and horror. I wanted others to feel that pain, know that fear. People would understand better if they knew my story. Sable probably wouldn’t care after everything that I did to her, everything I put her through. I wish I would’ve had the courage to let her know what was going on, instead of being the coward I was and giving her a glimpse of my pain. I am Jenna Nielson Turner. I am the daughter of an abusive, alcoholic mother and the product of a sexual assault or so I’m told. If that wasn’t enough, add to it one of the members of the faculty here at Boardan High School believes I am to be his personal love slave until I graduate. So, yeah, I’m a b****, but I have some pretty good reasons to be. Being that person helps me cope with the hell that is my world, not just my d*** life. Is it possible for one that has this as the introduction to their "Who am I?" essay to be open to love and be loved? Will she be able to except what is necessary for her to change? Or will she allow the surprises that come into her pathway to be the needed excuse to be just who she describes?

Sami's Review
 Cash has always been known for his bull riding skills. What happens on his last ride on the circuit changes everything. He not only loses his career but his aspirations for the future. He tries to lose himself in the bottom of a bottle but that is hard to do when you have family always on your back. Paige has loved Cash for as long as she can remember but he broke her heart long ago and she has never really recovered. Never thinking that they would run into each other imagine her surprise when not only does he run into him but due to a misunderstanding they end up living together. Cash still remembers Paige as the girl who stirred up feelings in him long ago that he was frightened of but the woman she is today is way more than he can handle. Paige is determined to have Cash anyway she can have him. Will Cash and Paige finally get on the same page and have their chance? Will a secret pull them apart once it comes to light?
Tabitha's Review
What a fabulous book... I couldn't  get enough of Cash and Paige's story. Cash a down on his luck former bull rider tries drowning his sorrows in the bottle. He comes back home to try and start over. He keeps having thoughts of that fiery red head Paige. Paige much younger than Cash had the biggest crush on Cash and has never really gotten over him. When their lives come colliding together once again can they rekindle that love that once started and ended in one night or will they grow farther apart? Be sure to pick up your copy of Texas Twist today you won't want to put it down once you get started.
