AN AWARD-WINNING CARIBBEAN MURDER MYSTERY, voted #1 on Recommended Thriller/Suspense list at Goodreads
James Cuffy, better known as Cuff, is living in paradise with his girlfriend, Rosie, on the small Caribbean island of St. Croix, where the sky is as blue as Cuff’s eyes, the ocean as pretty as Rosie’s cheeks, where the gentle lapping of the waves is a lullaby, and the swaying of the palm trees is a dance. The sandy beaches are as white as sugar, and the horizon is a world away. St. Croix indeed is paradise, the perfect place for living, laughing, and loving. But the sandy beaches and the turquoise sea can provide no cover from the deadly eyes of the unknown stalker pursuing Cuff. Murder leads to murder as he attempts to untangle the terrible web in which he has suddenly become entangled.
The twists and turns are many, the roads of the fast action leading in all directions. Cuff and Rosie are relentlessly pursued by a diabolical force that shows them no mercy. Do these two good people stand a chance against such sheer evil?
A NEW CONCEPT
DEADLY EYES provides TWO alternative endings in order to satisfy individual reading preference. Readers have the opportunity to read only the upbeat ending, or they can choose to read the much darker ending, skipping either the first ending or the second one. They also have the option of reading both endings, if they so desire. I am excited by this new concept of offering reading preference choices to my readers.

Where to Get It:
Clandestine Press Amazon
Two city women – a century apart – find love and adventure with rugged men in the Queensland outback.
Two love stories; two parallel lives; two destinies.
Set in the 19th and 21st centuries, Heather Garside’s debut novel is a passionate rural romance of love and its consequences.
Shelley and Emma are separated by time but bound by a dark secret to a place called Breakaway Creek.
Betrayed by her long-term boyfriend, Shelley Blake has fled the city to return to her home town. Her interest in a photograph of her great-great-grandparents is piqued by her family’s reticence about the mystery couple, and a search for answers takes her to the cattle station Breakaway Creek.
Here she meets Luke Sherman, a man embroiled in the bitter ending of his marriage and a heart-breaking separation from his two small boys.
Shelley resists an instant attraction to Luke, as neither is ready for a new relationship.
And, while Luke struggles to reclaim his children, Shelley uncovers the truth about her ancestors, Alex and Emma.
A story of racial bigotry and a love that transcends all obstacles takes the reader back to the pioneering days of the 1890s.

Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos, the god of sleep, and Thanatos, the god of death. She thinks she’s manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world. Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese’s heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her. The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.
What they’re saying about it:
This is one of the best modern/mythology mixed books I have read in a long time. It can almost make a girl paranoid enough to believe that the ancient Greek gods are alive and real. It is very different from Riordan’s Percy Jackson series where it is more fantasy than reality. The Gatekeeper’s Sons brings the ancient gods into a normal, modern girl’s life through the occurrence of an unfortunate event. The protagonist quickly becomes embroiled into the intricacies of the Greek gods with her as the unknowing catalyst.

Genre: paranormal fantasy
Where to Get It:
The dawn of the Golden Age has arisen. However, by making use of the first, still uncertain steps of the nascent world, the Dark Forces try to regain their dominion.
Amrita, the beautiful helping witch is entrusted with an important mission: she must find the twins, who were separated and went missing thirty years earlier when they were babies. They have to break the ever-growing power of the Prince of Darkness with the help of a mysterious and ancient relic. First, in order to achieve their aim, together with Amrita, they have to contend with the Minions of Darkness: the desperate demons, harmful witches and vampires. Furthermore, they also have to decode the mysterious message of the spirit world. If it had not been for Kristof, a knowledgeable shaman, their mission would be a complete failure. Above all, Amrita has to fight against enemy creatures and constantly contend with her contradictory, unfulfilled love for Morgan, the thousands of years old charismatic vampire. And when she meets an attractive, mortal man, at first, she is unable to decide whether a new emotion can override the age-old, platonic bond. The small team is racing against time, searching for the answers to several questions: what is the correlation between the picturesque Pilis Mountains, nestled in the middle of Europe, and the constellation Orion? What happened to the people of the sunken empires Mu and Atais, lost in the Pacific Ocean thousands of years ago? What is the message of the ancient stone tablets of Burma? Where is the Desert of Sonorous, and what secret does it hide? Who are the ‘forbidden bloods’? While the protagonists have countless adventures by following the clues and traveling half way around the world – including the east coast of the United States, Earl Dracula’s former home, the depth of the snowy, rugged mountains of Transylvania, and the remote exotic places of Burma and China – you will discover the answers.
