Driving Snow For Christmas by Norsebard [Uber/Original/Alt/Complete]
It's Christmas Eve! Unfortunately for Bettina Hostrup, that's no joyous occasion as she gets caught up in the worst blizzard to hit in a decade. Originally driving north to spend the Holiday at her sister's, the awful conditions on the roads force her to stop at a cozy-looking roadside inn located in a village somewhere in the middle of a very white nowhere. Once there, it doesn't take her long to get acquainted with the charming innkeeper Annika Neergaard and the other people waiting impatiently for the weather to improve…

Debut novel:

The Life in Death


Ann & Michele Modtland

Looking down at your dying body is indescribable, yet terrifying and unnatural. I saw my body shaking as my brain delivered its final electrical impulses, my back arching as it desperately sought life-giving air. As I reached down in a frantic attempt to put myself back together, the seizure suddenly stopped. Blood pooled from the hole in my head—a much larger amount than I had expected. Anxious to save myself, I instinctively tried to push the blood back through the hole, but I couldn’t grasp anything. I was intangible. There was a gurgling, moaning sound as my breath left my body. Then everything went still. I panicked and repeatedly tried to get back into my body, but it was useless. My life was finished and my soul—me—had been freed from the confines of the physical world. It was done. There was no going back. I was dead.

Combining strong elements of romance, mystery, and spiritualism, The Life in Death follows the life, death, and life-after-life of Tallon Monroe, a woman grieving over her murdered wife and unborn child. The Life in Death is a story of profound love that transcends the boundary between life and death.

The Life in Death includes violence, abuse, and suicide and is recommended for mature readers.

Forever Chance

(Five Points Series – Book 2)


CJ Murphy

Balancing a professional life and a personal life is always difficult. When you're the Sheriff of a county that brings in a million tourists like Chance Fitzsimmons is, you stand as the thin blue line between order and anarchy twenty-four hours a day, three hundred sixty-five days a year. Trying to plan a Christmas wedding to begin a decade's long-delayed life with her fiancée, Jax St. Claire, can throw things out of balance.

If that’s not enough, an influx of opioids causing multiple overdoses at a county festival followed by a mass casualty incident at a popular ski resort threaten to push the county emergency service resources to their breaking point. Chance’s dedication stresses her conviction to the five principles she lives by like a rescue rope loaded to its safety limit.

Jax's life isn't exactly calm either at the Three River's Animal Clinic, where a sinister visitor introduces unwelcomed sexual advances that cause waves of intimidation and harassment to her and her staff. The resolution that comes crashing down will close a critical link in the chain of a high-profile investigation, putting lives and a vow yet to be made, at risk.

Both women are dedicated to finding that balance, and their "Forever Chance" is but a promise away if only they can survive to trudge the snow to say ‘I do.’
