A Symbols of Love Novel

I’m here for pleasure.

And in paradise, I don’t have a past. I don’t have pain, my secrets don't haunt me and I can be anyone I want 

He’s here for business.

Harry's intoxicatingly handsome, rich, and also the biggest jerk I've ever met. So, it's inconvenient that sparks fly every time our eyes meet.

Indulging in an affair wasn't on my agenda.

But fate isn't a mistress to our intentions; And what starts as strike of lightening on a moonlit beach ignites a fire between us that will span continents. 

Meeting again in the unlikeliest of circumstances feels written in the heavens.

And I'll need the courage of the gods to tell him the truth.

They say the truth will set you free... but what if it destroys you first?

My twin brother is determined to kill himself, but I won’t let him. 

I just discovered the sacrifice he made for me when we were young.

Now it’s time I return the favor. This time I’ll be the one with the secret.

Psychologist Matthew Durante’s twin brother, Justin, has struggled with mental illness since their parents died in a house fire. After Justin is accused of setting off a bomb that killed an innocent woman, he lands in a maximum-security psychiatric hospital.

In the face of Justin’s unrelenting suicide attempts, Matthew grows frantic to keep him alive. And as the pieces of their past fall into place, Matthew decides bold action is his only choice, no matter the cost.

Set against the backdrop of weapons manufacturing, terrorism, and a dark family secret, Matthew and Justin fight for survival, redemption, and most of all, for each other.

Psychologist/author (psycho author) Jennifer Lane invites you to her world of romance, sports, and suspense! By day she’s a therapist, and by night she’s a writer. She can’t decide which is more fun.

A swimmer and volleyball player in college, Jen writes swimming-based romances as well: Streamline, a military mystery, and the free New Adult novella Swim Recruit.

Stories of redemption interest Jen the most, especially the healing power of love. She is also the author of The Conduct Series, a romantic-suspense trilogy that includes With Good BehaviorBad Behavior, and On Best Behavior.

Whether writing or reading, Jen loves stories that make her laugh and cry. In her spare time she enjoys exercising, attending book club, and visiting her sisters in Chicago and Hilton Head.

Start Me Up, the newest standalone in the Man of the Month Series by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner is LIVE!

4 - April - Start Me Up 

Wicked days. Sinful nights.
Meet Mr. April.
A high school drop-out with only his twisted sense of humor and panty-melting good looks going for him, Nolan Wood has turned a small radio gig into a thriving career.
Now a local celebrity, Nolan never wants for female companionship. But he never gets too close. And he damn sure never lets them see the man—or the pain—behind the jokes.
Then a one-night stand changes everything.
Career-focused, goal-oriented, and buttoned-down accountant Shelby Drake isn’t the kind of woman who’d usually catch Nolan’s attention, but her soft mouth, hidden curves, and deep sensuality blow his mind. And after only one taste, he wants more.
But Shelby wants nothing more to do with him. And now the radio playboy is on a sensual mission to convince her that opposites really do attract.
Her pleasure is his passion.

Everyone deserves to be safe in the arms of love

One day, life was perfect. Then, there was a knock at the door.

One minute I was a mother and wife, the next, I was a widow. Broken doesn't happen over time, it happens in the blink of an eye. 

Depression owned me. Heartache consumed me. Reality finally stepped in and made me wake up. I had people depending on me - the only two people left in this world that loved me.

I would start over for my children.

Ranching isn’t for everyone.

At one time, it wasn’t for me either. I’d wanted more from life, but I ended up strung out and unhappy. When family needed me, I returned home.

Being back home gave me a new lease on life, but I had no idea what that meant until I saw her for the first time. I needed her in my life. Hopefully, I'd be able to help this woman become whole.

Because without her, whole would become a memory.

Exclusive Release Excerpt
“I kissed him, Kass! He kissed me, I mean. And, and I… I liked it. Oh, God. I mean… Kass, I cheated on him!” It all came out in a hurried mess of words. They all fumbled around as I tried to rush them out. I heard a scrambling of sheets from the other end of the call. Kass whispered something and a grunt came from someone else, followed by a curse before Kass’s voice registered again.
“What? Jordan, you're not making sense.” She got quiet for a moment and before I could answer her, she continued, “Girl, have you been drinkin’? I thought you didn't do that, you being miss goody two shoes and all. What in the hell are you talkin’ about?” she asked, laughing slightly. I heard a door shut behind her and then silence.
“I.. um, he kissed me. It felt nice. Oh God, I’m a harlot!” I said falling over to press my forehead to my knees. Again, Kass’s laughter rang through the phone. That deep, uncontrollable belly laugh had her cackling in my ear for a solid two minutes.
“Oh, this is priceless, babe!”
“Kassidy, this is not frigging funny!” I snapped. I was irritated with us both right now.
“Babe, you’re totally cracked. You know that, right? Completely cracked.” Her reply made me sit up, my brow raised as I got defensive.
“What is that supposed to mean?” I asked, gruffly.
“Just what I said. You. Are. Cracked. I love ya, I do, but sometimes you're a good example of a typical blonde.” I grunted at that. She ignored it and carried on with what she was saying, “If your mystery kisser is who I think it is, then girl, go get him. That’s six foot four inches of prime man meat. Chiseled abs and all. Wait, better yet, you just go to him, fall at that sexy-as-sin man’s feet and worship him from the ground up. Go. Get. Laid. You’ll feel better once the cobwebs are gone. And trust me, he will appreciate the pipes being cleaned as well.”
Ugh. No she didn’t. “Jesus, Kass.”
“He’d like you calling out his name, not calling on Jesus, that might be a buzzkill. Think of it like this, it’s like sucking on a popsicle, minus the ice headache.”
“Kassidy, be seri-”
“Don’t, Jordy. I am being as serious as one can be, just shut up and listen for a minute. As your best friend, it’s my duty to tell you that you can remove the chastity belt you put on yourself the moment you lost Jared. I know you still love him, and I know you miss him. I do too. Everyone does. We always will, but he’s gone. His time here was spent making you laugh and embrace life. His mission was complete. It’s well past time for you to try and move on. You still have a purpose and a destiny to fulfill. He was the only man you’ve ever been with. You have to play the field to see what is out there.”
“You sound like your daddy,” I said, sniffling again.
“Growing up in the church taught me a few things. Who knew? But seriously, it's okay to move on, babe. It's time.”
“I’m scared, Kass. I can’t let my heart go through that again. I wouldn’t survive it if I had to fall in love and lose someone again.”
“Babe, I can’t tell you that there won’t be more loss in your life. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow. Shit happens. Life happens. You are responsible for your own happiness, Jordy. Live in the moment.”
“I shouldn’t be. I didn’t do so well the first time.”
“You remember what Uncle Buddy always says at funerals, as a way to comfort the family? Remember what he told you?”
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. That’s from the book of Psalms. It’s thirty-four eighteen, I believe.”
“Yes. It means he is there to heal you, if you let him. I know this is hard. I can’t imagine the amount of pain, and heartache you have been crushed by, babe, but you have two perfect babies that need you to put them and yourself before anything else. You deserve to find someone else. Someone that can be there to hold you up on your bad days, and someone to screw your brains out on the good ones.”
“Jesus, Kass. You know, for a preacher’s kid, you’re kind of a sex addict.” I laughed as she snorted.
“We all sin, sweetheart. I just chose to have some hellacious fun while I do it.”
“Yeah, I guess.” I paused and took in a deep breath. The last four months in this house had shown me a different kind of love. A devotion unlike anything I’d ever seen. I smiled as my fingers ghosted to my lips. I could still feel his lips on mine. I shivered. “Kass?”
“Yeah, babe?”
“Thank you for always being there for me.”
“I love you, you crazy girl. You should know that after twenty-five years and the chaos life has hit us both with. I am always here for you. I love you, girly. More than sex.”
I burst into a fit of laughter at that. I knew her, she was dead frigging serious. My laughter drew the dogs over and I was pounced on from both sides. That sent me into a bigger fit of laughter. I could hear Kass laughing as I struggled to stand up. “Duke, Daisy, down.”
“They’re happy you’re happy, crazy girl.” Kass’s voice was full of laughter.
I wobbled on my feet as the dogs darted down the stairs and back into the yard. A strong hand gripped my arm to steady me. I looked up to meet Rhett’s gaze. I gave him a small smile and brought my attention back to my phone call with Kass.
“Love you, Kass, gotta go,” I said, my eyes never leaving his.
“Alright, babe, love you too. Don't do anything I wouldn't do,” Kass teased.
“There's nothing you won't do, Kass.”
“Exactly.” I heard her laughter ring out as I clicked off my phone and chuckled to myself. God, I loved that crazy girl.

~Meet Barb Shuler~
I’m a Carolina Girl by right and a Texan by birth... so I have a Texas-sized temper. Living and working in both states I’ve learned a lot about hard work, adapting to your surroundings and making the best of the path that you have been led down. My grandma Dollie once told me I would know what I was meant to do when it happened. She was right, as always.
As with most book lovers, I am an avid reader. Reading has always been a hobby - a passion, really. Reading helps to expand the perimeters of one's mind. That is what got me to start writing as a kid. If I had paper...or a wall... I was writing. Words are a part of us all. Why not use them, right?
During the day I work as a ‘desk jockey’ and help the residents of my county navigate themselves around our little, but not too little country town. By night I am either blogging, doing PA work for some of my favorite authors or I am fighting with the voices in my head. (They can be stubborn at times.) It’s a way to cope and make the troubles of the day disappear, if only for a few hours. It’s a blessing and I am cherishing every moment. For that which is my creation, may become someone else's treasure.
Tomorrow is never guaranteed so I want to make sure I live the day as fully as possible.

Secret Lucidity Release Blitz +Review

Title: Secret Lucidity
Author: E.K. Blair
Genre: Student/Teacher Forbidden Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2018

This wasn’t supposed to happen.
But it did.
This wasn’t supposed to be my life.
But it was.

I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn’t see my way out of. That was, until him.

I never could’ve imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty.

The only problem?
He was off limits.

But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all. It was only a matter of time until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences.

My name is Camellia Hale and his is David Andrews, and this is our love story.

My Review
This book was fantastic. I don’t normally read student/teacher books and I didn’t realize this was one when I signed up to read it. But, I gave it a shot and I wasn’t disappointed. This book is so emotional and raw at times. While yes Camellia (Cam) was Andrew’s student and was also her swim coach he was so much more. Cam life completely changed in one day. She felt like she could no longer relate to the people who were her friends, the boy she loved, or anyone really. Andrew was the only one who didn’t want her to just act like nothing had happened or judged how she grieved. They knew what was happening could get them in trouble but who can’t help who you love. This book was just so emotional and felt so real. Cam was going through so much and felt so alone. Her pain was overwhelming her. If you cry easily I recommend you have some tissues ready. I can’t say enough about this book and I highly recommend it.
