Broken Prince Charming
by Beverly Ovalle
I lost my way. Discharged, broken, I sought comfort from a bottle. A lot of bottles. I wore a mantle of guilt that I had survived, while most of my buddies died. My life spiraled downward. Rock bottom is ugly. I realize I need help and reach out for it. Hidden among the homeless and despair is a bright light, with milk chocolate skin, bright blue eyes and a smile that cheers my soul.
Grace. She smiles and carries a beacon of hope within her. Despite circumstances that would bring anyone else down, she forges her own path. A path different from her mother’s. Determined to support herself and leave the shelter behind, she has a plan. Nothing and no one will stop her.
She deserves a fresh start, and I’ll help her get it. Even if it means I’m left behind.
Finding a Memory
by Mona Casey
When a young medium moves into a historical home with her husband, she meets the resident souls. Souls who lived during the turn of the century and found a sweet forbidden relationship. During their time on earth, it was unheard of for a single Caucasian woman to live unsupervised with her African American butler and driver but that didn’t stop them. Their story is timeless and heartwarming with a tragedy tossed in.
On the Homefront

With a shout, radio host Erna Huber gave the battle cry that brought hope back to all the women waiting for news of their husbands, sons, and fathers. World War II was finally at an end, but what does that mean for all the women that kept America running while the men were away?
Ben Peters was one of those returning servicemen that was simply trying to find his place in the tumultuous social climate after returning from the Pacific, when one night during a chance meeting at the roller rink, he just so happened to bump into Erna. With her sharp wit, and bombshell appearance he was hooked from the get-go.
Can they successfully navigate the war between the sexes on the home front? Or will their relationship prove to be more than either one of them bargained for?
You know what they say, all’s fair in love and war.

Meet the Authors
Beverly Ovalle dabbled with writing on and off for years when her best friend finally dared her to submit a story to a writing contest. Beverly decided she had nothing to lose and since she’d always wanted to be an author sent it in and agonized for months waiting to hear back. Contract in hand she has never looked back.
Beverly has been obsessed with dragons and romance since she was a young girl, collecting dragon books and reading everything she could find on them even down to the care of real life dragons. She’s always been slightly panicked that the world as we know it will end, so has prepped for it, haunting survivalist pages and prepper projects she felt she needed in the event SHTF.
An avid fan of all romance, Beverly’s goal is to share her love of the written word and write the hot and erotic romances that she enjoys. She writes what she loves to read and it was only a matter of time before her obsessions crept into her writing for her to share. She hopes you enjoy her tales as much as she loves writing them.
A Navy Veteran, Beverly has traveled around the world and the United States enabling her to bring her settings to life. Reading romances since the fourth grade she’s followed as the genre changed and spread into the vast cornucopia of romance offered today.

As an avid reader since the tender age of 4, books have always been Teresa’s passion. She started dabbling with poetry while still in high school and then at the urging of a friend, started writing her first full length novel in 2002. It took her five years to complete it. Coming Home, her first contemporary romance, was released as a self-published work in 2013 and was intended as a stand-alone until several readers contacted her to ask for more from the characters of what will now become The Possum Creek Series.
Always drawn to the supernatural and paranormal, her interest in vampires began with the daytime drama Dark Shadows which she watched with her mother every day after school. This interest led her to explore the paranormal romance genre which has led to the Summers Sisters Trilogy and the Vampire Blood Series. In recent years she started studying spiritualism after an encounter with a ghost in her living room.
Teresa holds an MBA in Human Resource Management and has been in the human resource field for over twenty five years. She has also served on several boards of directors for human resource professionals and has taught human resource classes at the college level as an adjunct instructor. Her ultimate goal is to become a full time author and have the time and resources to contribute to various community functions to raise awareness about domestic violence and the recent heroin problem which is wide spread throughout the United States.
In addition to reading romantic fiction, she enjoys reading a variety of other material including horrors, thrillers, mysteries, and non-fiction. As a woman with many interests she balances out her life by doing crafts, gardening, cooking, and spending time with her family. A lifelong resident of Indiana, she presently lives in a rural area close to her three adult daughters and seven grandchildren. Her household includes a spoiled dog, three cats, two goats and a stubborn miniature horse.
