LITTLE BEGINNINGS
 
Jeri lives in Hobart where she owns a gallery. Since her divorce, many years ago, she's finally ready to "be" with a man again. But finding the right one seems to be harder than she thought.
 
~~~
 
It was about five o’clock when Ely drove by Jeri’s gallery. He went to the back again and knocked at the door.
Nothing.
He knocked again, this time a little harder.
Nothing.
Turning around, he took in that there was still a car in the small drive way and as he was about to head over someone opened the door.
“Well, if it isn’t my carpenter with the magic wand,” Jeri cooed.
Not able to hold back, he smiled, enjoying the sight of her. She looked tired, though, with shadows under her eyes. No wonder, he thought, she must have worn herself out entirely, mopping, cleaning the flooded room, and possibly rescue her exhibits.
He was about to ask how things were going when she said bluntly, “I’m not sure I want you in this building.”
His brows shot up. “Beg yours?”
“You heard me. You and your sexy body are not allowed any further than this door.”

May I introduce: Kristy Centeno "Keeper of the Innocents" #TeamLimitless @KrissyGirl122

 
 

 
Keeper of the Innocents
by Kristy Centeno 
 
 
 
Book Blurb: 
Demi Redding has used her powers to vanquish demons for years, but when one shows up next door she will be forced to set both her experience and instincts aside to battle a war that has nothing to do with magic, and everything to do with matters of the heart.
As a Keeper of the Innocents, Demi's load as a guardian reduces with only one charge to take on at a time. However, when her new foe proves to be a force she can neither see nor find, she has no choice but to doubt the so-called good intentions of the stranger one door down.
Rhyzel Connor is not your average neighbor by any means. The red specks of color in his green eyes alone sets him apart and his demonic heritage makes him an easy target. Because of who he is he can't afford a mistake that will result in his demise, but the fact that he knows way too much about Demi quickly raises the suspicion veil over him.
There is a mission he must complete, and secrets he must fight hard to keep, but the biggest hardship he must face will be forfeiting his life in order to save Demi's.

Teaser Excerpt:
Everything happened so fast I couldn't even react. Stunned, I just stood there for a moment trying to size up my attacker. Before I even glanced up to look at his face I could tell something was off with him, but because of my nervousness, it was hard to tell for sure. He'd come out of nowhere, and if he intended to kill me, I was easy prey.
"What the hell do you think you're doing?" a deeply masculine voice growled at me. Fortunately, that same voice helped break me out of my stupor. 
I was prepared to see some form of evil glaring down at me, but what I found when I glanced up was definitely not what I was expecting. The handsome stranger staring at me was hot. Not just your average Joe kind of hot. No. This was like the kind of hot that makes a girl want to sin in ways she'd never done before.
His pale skin, tousled, bronze colored hair, and full lips were striking to look at, but his eyes left me completely speechless.
Perfectly round green eyes stared back at me and though they were gorgeous all on their own, it was the few specks of red in his irises that I found beautiful and so unusual. I was left with my mouth hanging open. I'd never seen eyes that color before and no matter how many times my brain yelled at me to look away, I just couldn't. I was drawn to him. To his unique eyes. To the mystery that shrouded him.
"Are you deaf?" the tone of his voice rose a little more.
"No…no. I-I…was just—" My speech was impaired by his handsomeness and I felt stupid. It wasn't like he was the first cute guy I'd ever seen. As a matter of fact, I'd broken up with my boyfriend two months ago and he'd been the cutest guy I'd ever seen. Now that this stranger was standing in front of me, I wasn't so sure anymore.

Get hooked on "Love Will Find You" 22/04/15 #MFRWHook #romance #freebook

 
 Happy "Book Hook" Day
I thought I post a few hooks of "Love Will Find You",
 the first book in the Australian Sports Stars series,
which is currently still free on Amazon.
 
 
  
 
"Love Will Find You" is set in Australia, a small coastal town in
 New South Wales as well as in Melbourne.

 
   
 
I hope you get hooked by this Snippet
 
Blurb:
After his father’s heart attack, Australian Football League player Tyson Gaspaldi takes his parents on holiday to a small place at the New South Wales coast.
One morning, following a surfing session, he comes across a crying woman on the beach. Everything about her intrigues him, and he can’t walk away. She’s not only sexy and humble, but, as he soon finds out, vulnerable as well.
It’s only been a few months since Katie Cassidy lost her sister in a car accident.
Still overwhelmed by the loss, a chance encounter on the beach with an attractive stranger awakens unexpected emotions inside her. She’s instantly drawn to his caring nature, but also his looks.
However, Tyson’s past quickly catches up with them, causing Katie’s childhood demons to return, and the road to romance becomes anything but smooth.
 
 
Today's hook :-)

With one final hiccupping sob, she picked up her jacket from the sand and walked across the dunes towards the parking lot. For the first time since Paige’s death, she experienced a sense of joy. It had only been a couple of minutes that she’d talked to Ty, a stranger, but she liked him. Wiping the last tears from her face, she walked to her car, recalling those chocolate brown eyes beneath his black lashes and the straight line of brow. But it’d been his smile that’d been so contagious. His teeth were even and white, in a nice contrast with his olive skin. Anticipation rushed through her as she contemplated returning the next day. In her mind, she imagined touching his body. He’d looked so damn sexy in his wet suit, unzipped down to just below the navel, revealing a muscular chest and powerful shoulders. She’d certainly been attracted to his tall, athletic physique. And she liked the way his dark, damp hair had started to curl slightly around his face.

Katie walked towards her car across the street when she heard her mother’s voice. “Here you are, love.”

4 Stars:
I really enjoyed this book. The main characters popped off the pages right from the start and the author sprinkled a fun and quirky set of secondary characters throughout.  
 
4 Stars: 
If you’re looking for a character-led romantic read with realistic emotion, then I can definitely recommend Love Will Find You.

Welcome to Tuesday ... Welcome to Tuesday Tales
...
This is the start of the second book in the Fermosa Bay series. It’s Ethan’s story – let’s get to know Addison, she’s new in town.

Today's prompt is a picture – it’s a scene from earlier in the story. Apologies for hopping around, but a private issue kept me busy last week, and today’s post was a “last minute” effort.

Enjoy - and feel free to leave a comment. And don't forget to click the link below to go back to the main Tuesday Tale site for more stories by very talented authors.


In front of them lay Fermosa Bay as he emerged from the tunnel of trees, the small town nestled along the curving bay where it met the Indian Ocean. Fishing boats went and came from the sheltered harbour. As Ethan drove along, he watched the stormy clouds along the line where the ocean met the sky.
He loved the view. He loved the contrast of the blue ocean meeting the luscious green of the woods. Ahead was the long winding road through gigantic trees leading into Fermosa. It was probably a blessing that Nick was asleep, he usually struggled with travel sickness coming down this route.
The phone buzzed and he pressed the Bluetooth button.
“Ethan speaking.”
“It’s Connor.”
Ethan’s heart sank, not ready yet for the conversation he was about to have. Another quick glance to the back told him that Nick was still asleep. It had been hard telling his son the news about Jack.
“How are you holding up?”
There was a moment of silence before Connor finally said, “Emily’s struggling.”
For the first time in a long time, Ethan wiped away a tear as he turned the corner for another near perfect view over Fermosa.

Ely wasn’t able to concentrate. All he was thinking about was this feisty woman who had been so determined in every little thing she did. It bugged him more and more that he had dismissed her for too old and hadn’t shown show up to the blind date. What an idiot he’d been. Judging someone by their age. Not to mention that he didn’t even know her exact age.
It’d been a while since he’d been with a woman. Tina to be exact. They’d been together  for over four years when he’d asked her to marry him.
Instead of a Yes, she’d said, “Oh honey, marriage is so not my thing. Why change something that is working perfectly well?”
It’d taken him a few days to think through it, but in the end he’d decided it hadn’t been working perfectly well for him at all.
He’d moved out the next day.
