A Novel Obsession
by Jeff Joseph

The Novel Series Book 1

What could be more peaceful than a small town nestled in the plush and picturesque Appalachian foothills along the Ohio River? Seemingly nothing unless you actually live in such a place and experience the incestuous nature of the meddling, gossip, and desire that can fester there.

Abby Lane has cornered the market on virtue in her small town, yet there are forces that want to take that innocence away from her. Unfortunately, the depths of deception, often undetected by the pure of heart can be harmful to the unsuspecting soul.

As an English teacher, dreamer and hopeless idealist Abby immerses herself in romantic fiction to fill the void in her reality. There is one author in particular who speaks directly to her heart and she foolishly makes him the model lover by whom all suitors are to be judged. When others try to bridge that gap, idyllic small town America becomes a mysterious place to be.

Battle Of Fortune Wells

DescriptionThe great Comanche people, once considered by military experts to be the finest mounted fighting force in the world, were surrendering to the U.S. Army. The last to surrender were the Quahadi people led by the famed “War Chief” Quanah Parker and were relegated to a reservation made up of Comanche, Kiowa and some Apache people in the Southwest Indian Territory. But reservations were not prisons, and many of those who lived there simply left to hunt or wander and often they attacked isolated ranches and buffalo hunters encamped in areas that once had been the great Comanche Nation.

Josh’s prospects brighten when an intriguing girl visits remote Willow Creek, but Shannon is entranced with his brother. As Nathan’s behavior grows stranger—and more dangerous—Josh confronts the dark side of what it means to be his brother’s keeper.
