Cover Reveal: MARIEL’S MARRIAGE MAYHEM

On the day of her wedding, feisty Mariel Crain discovers that her fiancé, Duane Davenport, has been carrying on an affair with best friend Melissa Meadows behind her back. All hell breaks loose at the church, as Mariel gives Duane and Melissa a piece of her mind, to mother Aretha’s delight, who never liked Duane.

Mariel is comforted by Duane’s best friend Damian Anders, the man who exposed his shenanigans. Wanting to seek revenge for Damian’s betrayal, the wily Duane concocts a plot involving Damian’s lifelong friend Sawyer Mandrell, but will this bring him closer to Mariel, or drive an even bigger wedge between them?

Here is the cover reveal for MARIEL’S MARRIAGE MAYHEM, which will be released in August 2016.

BRANDY’S SUMMER IDOL Preview: Agnes

“Yes, ah, well Brandy, this summer, you won’t celebrate like all the others running around at the beach, cavorting with young men, and making an almighty fool of yourself,” Agnes said.

Brandy shook her head, her eyes now saucer-shaped in sorrow.

“But mom, I never do things like that, you know,” Brandy said.

“No, I don’t know. Just because you’ve turned eighteen doesn’t mean you can become like all the others. This summer you’ll stay at home, with no parties, no merrymaking, nothing,” Agnes said, folding her arms in front of her daughter.

“What! I can’t see my friends, like Arabella,” Brandy said, bursting into tears.

“Agnes, stop this madness!” Garth said, pulling Agnes to the side.

“No, you stop it,” Agnes said, freeing her hand from Garth’s grip. “Only Arabella’s allowed into our house, but your other friends can amuse themselves with each other, and their boyfriends. Your grandparents won’t be able to enjoy the summer, and that doesn’t mean you can. Their memory will be cherished by us as a family for the next while, and that’s the end of it,” Agnes said, treating her daughter to an icy glance, before walking out of the room, leaving Garth and Brandy shocked. Seeing that Brandy was dumbfounded by Agnes’ behavior, Garth walked closer to his daughter, and wrapped his arms around her.

Brandy knocked on the door, and noticed that the lights were softly lit in the guest house. In a few seconds, Ryan slowly opened the door, and stood in the doorway, observing Brandy. Ryan was shirtless, and Brandy thought she would not be able to utter a word, so powerful a vision Ryan was in front of her. He appeared even more handsome than the first time they met, and she now knew that putting up with all her mother’s schemes to separate them was worth it.

“Hi,” Ryan said, steel blue eyes hooked on her.

“Hi Ryan,” Brandy said, eyes alight. Ryan walked towards Brandy, and she sucked in her breath, believing that she would faint at any minute.

“I wanted you since the first time I saw you that day,” Ryan said, eyes glowing in the evening light. There were candles situated all around the room, offering a luxurious luminescence which enveloped them both in its beautiful glow.

PATRICIA’S HOLIDAY AFFAIR Preview

Patricia was about to turn around to the bar when she saw a handsome young man wearing dark sunglasses, sporting a very brief white swimsuit that left precious little to the imagination. The conversations in the pool area suddenly froze as this man walked by, to the obvious admiration of the women present, and the envy of the men with them.

Patricia felt her breath catch in her chest as she realized this was the man watching her in the restaurant, and he was again observing her with the same passion. With great finesse, he made his way towards Patricia, and she thought she was about to faint, but somehow kept her composure. He sat on the chair next to her, raising his sunglasses to the top of his head.

“Hi,” he said, a sensual smile on his full lips.

“Hello,” Patricia said, the pool area silent, all eyes open her and this man. The man moved around, and fully faced her.

“I’m Cole,” he said, his hazel eyes hooked on her.

Patricia thought she would not be able to respond to him, as her voice was trapped in her throat, but she breathed out, this releasing her tension.

“Patricia,” Patricia said, her eyes wide with amazement.

Cole raised his eyebrows, and treated her to another seductive look.

“A beautiful name for a stunning woman,” Cole said.
