Dumped at the altar and left without a home, Rosie Xalbadora takes a job as a governess at the edge of the Australian outback. There she meets Pippa Bristow, a sensitive child who copes with her parent's bitter divorce by escaping into a magical world of fairy queens and unicorns. Pippa's enigmatic father, Adam Bristow, will endure whatever it takes to shield his daughter from his selfish, oil heiress ex-wife.

.

Struggling to shield Pippa from her mother's games, Rosie must face her own painful past while fighting a growing attraction to her handsome, emotionally unavailable employer. But help comes in the form of a quirky neighbor, a friendly Outback town, and two ghost riders who visit Rosie each night in her dreams. When Rosie and Pippa save a small, white pony from slaughter, their ill-timed compassion puts Adam's custody dispute, Pippa's fantasies, and Rosie's worst fears all up for bid in an epic showdown.

.

The Auction Trilogy is a contemporary romantic family saga styled with the heart-wrenching, Gothic undertones of 'Jane Eyre' and just a hint of the supernatural.

.

'The Auction Trilogy' contains:

—If Wishes Were Horses
—Well of Dreams
—Behold a Pale Horse

“A mystical, magical landscape, and old legends take on a new life…” —Romancing History Blog

.

“I was instantly drawn into the characters’ lives, and felt like I was right alongside Rosie as she struggled to keep her life from falling apart…” –N.Y. Times Best Selling Author Stacey Joy Netzel

.

"This modern day rendition [of Jane Eyre] … is spot on with the Bronte storyline, but with a refreshingly modern twist. You'll want to cry with the heroine as she struggles to protect the little girl from her crazy and manipulative mother, and you'll cheer for Adam & Rosie as they take baby steps toward trusting one another and believing in true love…" —Dark Lilith Book Blogs

.

"I cried, laughed and my heart sang throughout its entirety. If you're a romantic at heart and love to be put through the wringer just to have your heart sigh, this is the book for you…" —Reader review

.

"The mental imagery of this story is incredible. I fell in love alongside Rosie with the Station and its dream walks. A beautifully written tale!" —Reader review

.

"The book induces a roller-coaster of emotions in the reader ranging from unadulterated mirth one moment to such deep grief and sadness the next. The description of Australian outback, the auction and the scenes are so vivid that they took me down memory lane to the trip I took to that country…" —Reader review

.

"The story of Adam Bristow, his daughter Pippa, and incoming tutor Rosie Xalbadora invokes shadows of Jane Eyre, with Erishkigal’s flair for complex story line and a rich supporting structure of subplot … "The Auction” is satisfying, inspiring, heart-rending, and epic…." —author Dale Amidei, Jon's Trilogy

About the author

 Anna Erishkigal is an attorney who writes fantasy fiction under a pen-name so her colleagues don't question whether her legal pleadings are fantasy fiction as well. Much of law, it turns out, -is- fantasy fiction. Lawyers just prefer to call it 'zealously representing your client.'
.

Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters. The kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge.

.

At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off.

 5 stars - Gripping story of true love, forgiveness and happily ever after!

Did he deserve her second chance? Could he love a woman with secrets?

Olivia Moore is thrilled to renovate her best friend’s beach house in Wrightsville Beach. But she is mortified when she literally bumps into her teen crush, the enigmatic and sexy Greek geek, Alexander, who heroically tackles her onto the hot sand. Nearly ten years ago she fell for him hard and fast but he broke her heart. Now he’s her best friend’s brother-in-law and seems to appear everywhere she goes?

Still sorry he walked away from the only woman he ever loved the shy bachelor is determined to earn a second chance with the unique and spirited Olivia. Begging her to help him boost his confidence to woo a special, secret woman—her—will his convoluted plan win her over or lose her trust forever?

Refusing to let her secret past—or any man—distract her from proving herself as the most talented designer in the industry Olivia resolves to stay away from Alexander and focus on her work. But her generous nature prevails. She is over him so why not help the shy geek win his mystery woman? So why is she curious to see what Alexander will look like after his makeover? And why risk being hurt and rejected again by entertaining foolish dreams that he might take her to beautiful Santorini instead of the secret woman he craves?

Once the truth inevitably comes out, will Olivia and Alexander get their second chance to forever? Or will both their hearts and lives be destroyed?

"...Ms. Silk's uplifting stories pull you in and make you fall in love..." Elizabeth Lennox, Bestselling Romance Author

I received an advance copy of this book, and what an amazing opportunity that was granted to me by our super talented author Gloria Silk whose two previous books are still fresh in my romantic mind!

She deserves an honest review for this latest book From Geek to Greek Billionaire which is just as phenomenal as her other books!

A gripping story about young love torn by doubts, immaturity and insecurities — they were abruptly separated from their first romantic meeting, until fate played a great surprise —- meeting each other after almost a decade, both Olivia and Alexander experienced angst with twists and turns, their immature indecisions destroying first love that had beautifully blossomed inexplicably under magical circumstances!!!

I love the way the storyline weaves into an interracial romantic connection between an equally magnificent portrayal of beauteous and talented Olivia Moore, an American and Alexander Anderson whose joint family heritage has led them to a more wonderful relationship with the family, adoptive parents of Alexander whose biological parents are from Greece.

Following a complicated young lovers’ story like Olivia’s and Alexander’s strengthens my faith in fate and destiny! When there is true love, forgiveness and redemption are easier to refresh a fully sustained trust and confidence with the one person whom you truly meant to keep in your life!

With a magnificent and loveable romantic twist like a Cinderella fairytale Olivia has finally made a brilliant decision in keeping her Prince deeply close in her heart, forever—in following an epic love story like theirs, an avid romantic like me only has this to say “thanks for Gloria Silk’s brilliantly creative mind, we all enjoy to fantasize our own love story, living happily ever is my kind of New Year’s romantic mood!

Seconds seem like a lifetime when the life you lived is slowly drained out of you by those who care not what you felt, hoped, or dreamed. When the darkness comes it is all-consuming; there is no light and there is no pain. It is the never-ending loss of hope that now consumes me as I die in his arms.This is Abigail Martin's nightmare. After her parents become the first victims of a serial killer obsessed with the vampire saga, "Crimson Reign," Abigail does the only thing that she thinks will save her from her parent's fate–she becomes some one else. As Vera MacIntrye, she falls in love with the very handsome Tad Knightley, and then walks into her first day at her new school to see him standing at the front of the classroom. He's every teenage girls fantasy, but as he writes “Mr. Knightley: AP British Literature” across the white board Vera realizes the one person who filled the gaping hole in her heart will soon rip it wide open again.Vera struggles to adjust to being a 'normal' teenager with very adult responsibilities like paying the rent, buying groceries and making sure that lights stay on, while being drawn time and time again back to her off-limits teacher. What's worse is he is drawn to her too, and their worlds refuse to stay apart when Tad finds Vera screaming in terror in the parking lot after the winter formal. The murderer has struck again and is getting closer to the next target–Vera. Tad will do whatever he can to save her, even if it means losing his dream job, but will it be enough when the murderer is closer than anyone ever thought?
All Beth Michaels ever wanted was to get out of her small hometown. But when a heartbreaking call sends her back, she meets Matthew Wright, and he makes her question everything she thought she knew… A heartwarming novel perfect for fans of the TV shows Gilmore Girls and The Hart of Dixie.


When Beth Michaels hightailed it out of the hole-in-the-road town she grew up in, she only had two goals. One—get as far away as quickly as possible, and two—never set foot in her parent’s home again. But when she receives a heart breaking call from her childhood best friend, Jen, she has no choice but to turn her ’56 Ford pickup back in the direction of Salem, Missouri to attend a funeral. 


There’s a new local in town when Beth arrives, and suddenly, it ain’t all that easy for her to remember her rules for dating. 

#1. Cookie-cutter-perfect guys ain’t her type. 

#2. Tie wearin’ and church frequentin’ is an automatic dismissal. 

#3. Most importantly, never date anyone from small minded, conservative, Bible-thumping towns like Salem. 


Unfortunately, Matthew Wright breaks all her rules and then some. 


Matt might be from a small town and have small town values, but that doesn’t mean he fits into a little slot of Beth’s preconceived notions. After all, ever so often good guys are good. Now if he could just convince Beth to let go of her past and give him a chance, he’s pretty sure there’s a whole lotta sweet under that prickly exterior. 

His own … Sweet Contradiction.

What if ISIS controlled America?

Sixteen year old Eisa McCarthy lives in Caliphate City under the control of the radical Islamic group, the Ghuraba. Seven years ago General Mohammad bin-Rasulullah defeated the United States in a ruthless betrayal and set up their worldwide Caliphate in the ruins of Washington, D.C. The Ghuraba's supreme holy leader, the Abu al-Ghuraba, claims Eisa's father gave him control of the U.S. nuclear arsenal, a claim bolstered by the smoldering ashes of many cities and her Syrian-born mother's testimony. But after her mother is accused of apostasy, she learns her father may not be the 'martyr' the Ghuraba claim. 

Do the Ghuraba really possess the launch codes for the ICBM missiles? Or did her father 'lock them out' as Colonel Everhart, the rebel commander, wants her to tell the world? If she fights, the Ghuraba will kill her little sister, but if she doesn't, eventually the Ghuraba will hack in and nuke them all. All Eisa has are a string of Muslim prayer beads and a pre-Islamic myth her father told her the night he disappeared. 

The fate of the world, and her little sister's life, hang in the balance as Eisa sorts through ancient myth, her Muslim faith, and what really happened the night the Ghuraba seized control.

Note: The Caliphate was inspired by the brave Kurdish and Yazidi women's YPJ fighters.

"It's like Star Trek meets Creation Mythos..." --Reader review

 

At the dawn of time, two ancient adversaries clashed over control of Earth. One man rose to stand at humanity's side. A soldier whose name we still remember today... 

 
Angelic Special Forces Colonel Mikhail Mannuki'ili awakens, mortally wounded, in his crashed ship. The young woman who saves his life has abilities which seem familiar, but with no memory of his past, he can't remember why! With his ship destroyed and a shattered wing, he has no choice but to integrate into her village.

Ninsianna's people have prophecies of a winged champion, a Sword of the Gods who will raise armies from the dust and defend her people against an Evil One. Mikhail insists he's no demi-god, but her dark premonitions and his uncanny ability to kill say otherwise. Even without the technology destroyed along with his ship, the sword he carries is a weapon of mass destruction to a people who still throw sticks and stones. When young women start to disappear, Mikhail must organize her people to fight back against an enemy who remains unseen.

Evil whispers to a sullen Prince. A dying species seeks to avoid extinction. Two emperors, entrenched in their ancient ideologies, cannot see the larger threat. As intrigues roil the heavens, a tiny Mesopotamian town becomes ground-zero for this fantasy fiction retelling of mankind's most epic story about the battle between good and evil … the clash of empires and ideologies … and the greatest superhero to ever walk the Earth. The Archangel Mikhail ( Archangel Michael ).

Note: this book is NOT Christian fiction. The Sword of the Gods saga is an epic fantasy retelling of the wars in heaven at the dawn of time, the clash of ancient adversaries and empires, the myth of Lucifer, the fallen angels, and the soldier we now call the Archangel Michael, and the 3,500 b.c. humans caught in middle, similar in tone and style to books such as Game of Thrones, Dune and Outlander, with a romantic undertone, all told with a science fiction / space opera twist.

At the request of the publisher, this book is sold without DRM.
