No Going Back is the first story in the Mystery Angel Romance series. Each stand-alone love story in the series has an angel hidden in the plot, and the angel’s identity isn’t revealed until the finale — unless the reader figures it out first.
In No Going Back, Kellen Brand’s inheritance turns out to be a whopper — one dilapidated farm in West Virginia and one guardian angel!

Since Kellen is convinced no sane woman would choose to live in Riverside, she vows to sell her farm and quick. Her handsome neighbor Luke Kenyon must block the farm sale or risk exposure of his family’s secrets. While Kellen has located one potential buyer, she faces a town full of objectors. Someone is trying to frighten her off, and Luke is forced to step in and rescue her more than once.

Unfortunately, Kellen can’t seem to stay out of trouble. She stumbles onto a clandestine hazardous-waste-dumping operation next to her farm, and she prays Luke has one more rescue up his sleeve. It’s her only hope of staying alive.

Unless her mother really did leave her a guardian angel…

excerpt

Luke Kenyon leaned over the neck of the magnificent black stallion and watched her. Same sexy cowboy attire as the day before — dark flannel shirt, worn jeans, though no Stetson today to hide his handsome features or his expression.

“You scared me,” she wheezed.

“Sorry,” he said, though he didn’t look it. “You’ve done that before.”

“What?”

The slow smile curved across his cheeks, and his eyes darkened. Kellen felt the slow flush start at her chest where her heart pounded out a rhythm, and she prayed her neck and cheeks wouldn’t turn pink.

“Caught crawfish.”

She wiped her hands on her shorts and winced. “A few, when I was younger.”

“Where?” He shifted a bit in the saddle, and the black horse side-stepped.

Her turn to smile. “Where was I younger, or where did I catch crawfish?”

He stared for a moment, and his eyes narrowed. A long moment passed, and he suddenly laughed out loud. Dismounting, he stepped to the edge of the bank and extended a hand to help her out of the water.

She hesitated.

“I don’t bite. I’m harmless.” His voice rumbled low, and a shiver vibrated her spine.

I doubt that.

She watched him, but didn’t move. He looked and acted like a man used to getting his own way.

“The name’s Kenyon, Luke Kenyon.” He kept his hand outstretched, waiting for her to make the next move.

Meet the Author

Petie spent a large part of her career working as a biologist at Walt Disney World — “The Most Magical Place on Earth” — where she enjoyed working in the land of fairy tales by day and creating her own romantic fairy tales by night. She eventually said good-bye to her “day” job in order to write her stories full-time.

Petie is a member of Romance Writers of America, and she shares homes in Tennessee and Florida with her horticulturist husband, a spoiled-rotten English Springer spaniel addicted to pimento-stuffed green olives, and a noisy Nanday conure named Sassy who made a cameo appearance in Angel to the Rescue.

No One Surives The City by John Dawson Jackson Cover Reveal 9/26/15

READY??
SCROLL.
SCROLL..
SCROLL…
Castigation is a dangerous place. No one knows that better than the characters of this true revenge tale. Waking up in the middle of an alley near death, disfigured, angry, the nameless narrator must decide who deserves the ultimate punishment. In a city that no one survives, one must discover not only who is guilty but who is just guilty enough. Love, lust, torture, pain, and an ending you’ll never see coming, this book has it all
 
 
It took me a full minute to realize that the mess in my hands was all that remained of my face. I didn’t have a mirror to check the damage, but I could see part of my nose and a tooth glistening white amongst the reds and browns. I couldn’t stand, not yet. I could barely breathe. I remained on my knees, begging at the altar that was a back alley dumpster, a rat for a priest, and a moon for a votive candle. I wanted to scream, but I didn’t have enough air in my lungs. I wanted to cry, but I was afraid my eyes would come tumbling out of my head to land on whatever the hell was left of my cheeks. I wanted a lot of things, but wants in Castigation were often left in the gutter beside the bodies.

PROLOGUE

GRACE

The man and lady of the house my Mummy works in, are screaming at each other and it’s really scary. I can’t remember their names, I’m sure it starts with a big H, but normally they are really nice to me and Mummy, but today is different and I don’t know why.
Mummy and I are downstairs and we can hear every word that is being said between the two of them.
I look over at Mummy and her cold blue eyes that once told me she loved me, now tell me something completely different. They tell me everything she won’t say to me, even though I don’t want it to be true.
“This is all your fault.” I jump at the scary sound above me that sounds like something special is breaking.
“You can tell your British slut to get out of my house.”
“She has nowhere else to go, darling.”
“Don’t you dare darling me, you bastard.” I can hear something else break above and the man says a naughty word. I look over at Mummy and attempt to move towards her for a cuddle, but she walks away from me just as I hear the lady continue shouting.
“You know what? I don’t care about the business over here. You can tell Edward we are moving back to America. I don’t care about that slut and her little bastard.”
All of a sudden the picture changes before me and my adult self is flying through the town I grew up in and I can see my whole childhood before me. All the nasty words my mother or stepfather ever said to me. The slaps to the face my mother loved to give me when she felt I’d done something wrong.
“This is all your fault.”
“You worthless piece of shit.”
“I hate you, we hate you. Even your father couldn’t stand to be near you.”
“He left us, because of you.”
“We live like this, because of you. YOU, GRACE.”
“You won’t amount to anything, you’re useless.”
“I wish I never had you, I hate you and you’re worthless.”
I can feel all the hatred centered in on that little girl and I can feel all the tears she doesn’t show as she grows into the teenager who hates and loathes herself so much. I can see my teenage self standing by the edge of the River Tone just before its cold waters engulf me, drowning me and pulling me down to its depths with my own self-hatred and sorrow. I try to reach the water’s surface, but the cold water is keeping me down, engulfing me with the old memories that still haunt me.
“You’re worthless.”
“You won’t amount to anything.”

What Others Are Saying

Wow what can I say about this book it is utterly heartbreaking but in a great way from a readers point of view it pulls you in from the very first page ~ Goodreads Review

This is an incredible book. The suspense is amazing, and there are scenes that had me in bits. I won’t say which one (spoilers) but one in particular was one of the most tense, incredible, edge-of-my-seat writing I’ve ever read. ~ Goodreads Review

Oh lord this is this book needs very little said about it other than the fact that it is a stunningly beautiful story. ~ Goodreads Review

It’s raw, it’s confronting, it’s heartbreaking, it’s breathtaking. The emotions that this novel was able to evoke in us left us in all honesty speechless. From the very first sentence right until the very end we couldn’t put it down. ~ Goodreads Review
