Running Scarred
by Jackie Williams

Scarred Series Book 1

For three years ex-soldier, Patrick Reeves has avoided his once comfortable world. Unable to accept his terrible injuries he moves to a secluded cottage in France and hides from everyone, most of all himself. But when a bright, beautiful woman buys the chateau and estate on which his home stands, it is more than his unerring control can bear. For her to flinch from his wounds would be terrible, but for her to pity him would be the final insult. His only option is to make sure she never sees him at all.

Ellen doesn't give a damn what Patrick looks like, one glimpse of his shaded figure, one touch of his work roughened hands, one hint of his masculine scent and she is his forever. She ends her engagement and follows her heart, buying the Chateau to fulfil a dream that has been her only wish since her brother was blown up in Afghanistan. If she can capture the elusive Patrick while attaining her goals, her world will be complete.

But Patrick is hiding from more than himself. Ellen is devastated when he abandons her for a flame haired beauty and when her ex-fiancé reappears, determined that he is surrendering neither Ellen or her fortune, she discovers that she is in danger of not only losing her lover but her life.

Can Patrick escape in time to save the woman who loves and accepts him exactly as he is or will she be lost to him forever while he has been Running Scarred for far too long.

Running Scarred is a love story and an easy read, gently exploring the emotions stirred by disability caused by war. Suitable for young adults upwards.

DescriptionSarah Seere, coal baron heiress, debuting psychic, mountain climber and equestrienne, has some monumental dilemmas to resolve: Two murders. A missing child. A threatening foe. A budding practice as a psychic. Sure she's bewildered. And even her psychic powers seem uncertain. It's a beautiful autumn day when Sarah rides her horse up Stony Mountain and discovers a crime scene. Another young girl, Katie Sackett, has been brutally murdered, her body dumped on the mountain. As Sarah approaches, Katie's ghost makes an impassioned plea: Will Sarah find the man who killed her? Riding away, Sarah finds herself involved in an interview with the local TV station, WSTB. That evening, the news anchor wraps up the murder segment by stating that Sarah is using her psychic abilities to discover the identity of the killer. He's beaten two girls to death. Now the news reveals that some busybody psychic is after him. There's only one thing he can do about it, and he has to do it soon-find and kill the psychic.

DescriptionStiles Island is a wealthy and exclusive enclave separated by a bridge from the Massachusetts coast town of Paradise. James Macklin sees Stiles Island as the ultimate investment opportunity: all he needs to do is invade the island, blow up the bridge, and loot the island. To realize his investment, Macklin, along with his devoted girlfriend, Faye, assembles a crew of fellow ex-cons --all experts in their fields--including Wilson Cromartie, a fearsome Apache. James Macklin is a bad man--a very bad man. And Wilson Cromartie, known as Crow, is even worse.

CSI East Coast Episode III
by
Roger Grubbs

DescriptionThe beautiful and brilliant CSI Agent Samantha Powers (Sam) along with her partner Jonathan West, a best selling novelist, are at it again. This time the stakes are higher than ever with bodies showing up daily. The only problem, law enforcement has a suspect but no way to prove it.

What begins as an apparent homicide turns out to be something totally unexpected. Before long bodies are showing up, and Sam is convinced they are all connected. While there are witnesses, something strange happens to each and every one of them.

Certain the city will panic if the killer isn’t stopped immediately, the mayor places the job of solving this crime squarely on Sam’s shoulders. Now under pressure and with the help of dedicated police officers, she and her partner work around the clock.

Before long they realize this serial killer is always one step ahead of the law. The only DNA evidence left at the scene matches the victim—until they finally get a big break. Minute amounts of skin found under the fingernail of a young woman reveal another source, a male. Now with a suspect in their sights, they set a trap; but what happens next will totally blow them away. See if you can follow the leads, but be prepared for a few surprises as you join us in this search for the elusive killer in CSI East Coast Episode III.
