Raven St. James is a Phlebotomist in a prominent Portland, Oregon hospital. She is petite, with jet-back hair, green eyes, and extremely shy. She dreams of being like the nurses on the daytime hospital shows—perfect. Tall, blond, blue eyed, with big breasts.
Dr. Quinn Taylor admires Raven’s skill, and the caring she shows with her patients, but can’t get her attention. Until the day she winks at him.
Raven only has 24 hours in her Cinderella body. What will she do with it? Will she become the confident, strong, flirty girl she wants to be? Will she get the guy she’s always wanted? Quinn.
Love on Ice – Lauren Marie
Kate Beck once was a nationally recognized figure skater. Eight years ago, on the brink of being one of the top three skaters in the United States, her dreams came crashing down at the hands of her coach and her mother. She walked away and has hidden from her mother ever since. Moving from place to place, she gets off a bus in Canon City, finds a job and settles in for the winter. She’s been lonely and dreams that one day she’ll meet a man, have a family and be able to stay in one place. It’s been eight years of running. She hopes her mother has given up the search for her.
Jay Hager grew up in Canon City. He once was an ice hockey player who got picked up by the NHL and played briefly for a junior team. At nineteen years of age, he blew his knee out and his career was at an end. He returned to Canon and bought a dilapidated skating rink. His business has done very well. He notices a beautiful strawberry blonde sits every weekend in the bleachers at the rink and she watches the skating classes and his pee-wee hockey team practice. He would like to get to know her, but finds a mystery around her.
Will Kate stay long enough to find love or let her past fears overwhelm all the good emotions she feels for Jay? Will her mother find her and tear her new world apart?
The Spirit Path – Tammy Tate
“Where did I come up with the idea for The Spirit Path?” you ask. That’s easy.
A palomino horse named “Ben” and a Rottweiler named “Cash” inspired me. After years of horseback riding over acres of undeveloped Texas terrain it sparked my imagination. Did Native American’s ride their horses down these same trails? What was it like back then? Would someone in the twentieth century be able to survive in 1800? Ideas exploded inside my head of danger, suspense and above all romance.
I enrolled in a Journalism/Short Story class and after hours of research, The Spirit Path emerged. Native American history truly fascinated me. I even sprinkled Sioux dialect throughout my manuscripts. Writing became a passion. It stood to reason my genre of choice would be time travel, romance. As time passed, characters that I literally breathed life into refused to go away. Nicole and Flaming Arrow lived century’s apart. They were restless. It was up to me to unite them once more.
With the help of my magnificent publisher, The Spirit Path has evolved into a three part series. Book 1 and 2 are available through BooksToGoNow.com and Amazon. Book 3 is near completion. Telling the story has been the easy part. The hard part, will be to let them go…
Keeping Your Teens Safe
By Angela Ford (Best Seller in Amazon’s Women’s Action & Adventure Fiction – FBI Internet Safety Series – Closure & Forbidden)
‘The Scary Facts’
– 50% of teens communicate online with someone they’ve never met
– 30% of teenage girls are sexually solicited in chat rooms
– 77% of children targeted by Internet predators are 14 or older
– 64% of teens do things online they don’t want their parents to know
– 60% of teens have received an email/instant message from a stranger and half have communicated
We cannot always monitor and control our children online. But there are things you can do to feel confident about keeping your kids safe online and encourage the good things the Internet has to offer. Here are a few tips I found:
•Be aware – Get to know where your teen is most active on social media, what they talk about online and how much time they spend on the Internet. This doesn’t mean that you have to approve every post or sit with your teen as she or he uses the Internet. Just check-in every once in a while.
•Be honest – Set expectations – Tell your teen that you’re checking in. Once he or she is aware that you keep tabs for safety reasons, your teen might be less likely to visit dangerous sites, or post risky content online. This gives you an opportunity to be open about what you consider safe – and dangerous – Internet usage.
•Communicate – Join your teen online. Even though it might be a difficult conversation to have, start a dialogue with your teen about risky teen behaviors. Applaud good online behavior. When teens use the Internet properly, let them know! Validation from you will help your teen stay on track and continue to behave safely online.
