ABNA Publishers Weekly Reviewer

This outstanding manuscript begins in 1909 northern California, where Alma Bentley has murdered her boss and lover, Joe Machado. Enter the famed attorney, Malachi Rivers, who must defend this uneducated, naïve and clearly guilty woman. The trial is watched carefully by Emma Knight, an heiress who is determined to make her own way as a newspaperwoman and to whom Alma has confided the truth behind the murder. As love grows between Emma and Malachi, the two become partners in their efforts to save Alma from herself and from the biased hand of the law. The trial unfolds while the truth behind Malachi’s family is unveiled, offering up two parallel and engaging mysteries. The characters and setting come to life through effective and creative dialogue, while the trial provides a unrelenting narrative tension. Don’t be surprised if you finish it in one sitting.

Book Description:

“Frail Blood” is an historical romantic thriller.

California, 1909. A woman straps a pistol to her ankle, walks to her lover’s home, and shoots him. Her motive? After an affair of four months, he jilted her for another woman.

How would an attorney defend the woman in light of her outright confession? Would an all-male jury view her actions with repulsion or pity?

The climate of California in the early twentieth century when women couldn’t vote and men held the real power, where immense wealth rested alongside poverty, held a paradox of contradictions.

The bare bones of this true California court case sparked the idea for the fictional story of Alma Bentley, attorney Malachi Rivers, and Emma Knight, the woman who helps him investigate the case.

When jaded lawyer Malachi Rivers engages newspaper editor Emma Knight to aid him in the case of Alma Bentley, he has no idea they’ll eventually unmask a vile web of family deceit, wickedness, and treachery. Constantly putting herself in harm’s way, the feckless Emma uncovers dark secrets that lie behind the wealthy facade of the Joseph Machado clan.

With her strong opinions, Emma tests Malachi’s patience even while he’s strongly attracted to her. She disagrees with every aspect of his trial strategy, but he defends his client the only way he can – by insisting that a woman, a naturally frail creature, is incapable of committing such a heinous crime.

Emma wants to experience true passion and detests the false notion that women are inferior to men in any way. Even while she confronts Malachi at every turn, she falls ridiculously in love with him.

Readers of historical fiction and mystery/suspense, as well as historical romance, will enjoy the elements at play in this slice of life, fictionalized story of California.

Jarrod and Cassandra want only to escape but escaping from Hell is not so simple.

A harsh and cynical look at love and sex, death and the afterlife, faith and religion!

Will love prevail? Who is Jarrod and does he have a plan? Who is Cassandra and what does she really think about all of this? And who is the evil twisted little gnome who haunts Jarrod’s dreams and who has been watching Cassandra for her entire lifetime. What does he want from them?

Sasha was an aging stripper approaching the end of her pole grinding days. The money was becoming less and less and the bills were becoming more and more. In the beginning it had been exciting to dance, drink, and fornicate with the devil. Today it was stressful, causing her to almost lose her apartment, the respect of her son and her sanity

One day when she is locked out of her apartment, she is forced to do an unmentionable act with a scumbag landlord. This life changing experience causes Sasha to leave the strip club and give God a another try. Prior to that experience she hadn’t been to church in over two decades.

While on her journey Sasha’s life is changed by an inspiring local minister, a community activist, a group of troubled teens and a struggling girls club. In the midst of the struggle she learns whether or not God has a plan for her.

If you feel trapped and don’t know your way out, Private Dancer is the story for you.

Okay, I have to admit it, I love all three of the Fifty Shades books. What started as a guilty pleasure turned into full on obsessive! If there were was another one in the series, I would have already read that one too.

I wrote these journal prompts because I couldn’t stand the thought of the books ending, and I wanted them to continue. I’m sure you know what I mean. And they explore all aspects of the book like how you felt about the sex and Christian’s past to his incredible wealth.

What could be better than 50 days of 50 Shades? And E.L. James, if you’re listening, can you write a new trilogy with Kate and Elliott or Mia and Ethan?
