Eye of the Beholder

Peace In The Storm Publishing

The true measure of our existence begins with the way we view the world.
Jerusalem "Jay" Jones has experienced the uglier side of life. As an
Iraq war Veteran, he is a hero for bravely putting his life on the line
to serve his country. But that unselfish act resulted in him lying in a
Veteran’s hospital with injuries he sustained from the war. His present
circumstance should be a cakewalk for Jerusalem considering what he has
witnessed both as a child and while in the heat of battle. The
pleasantries of love, laughter and life have always seemed to elude him.
From his early days as a child growing up abused and terrorized on the
tough streets of Newark, to being all that he could be in the military,
Jerusalem’s life has been anything but pleasant and attractive when
viewed from the surface. Now, vulnerable and reclusive, he must face the
world he joined the military to escape, armed with only dark secrets
from his past, a bruised and burdened psyche and limits to him
physically. Jill Lopes longs to fix the wounded and broken, but before
she can heal the sick, she must first mend her own battle scars of
unhappiness and resistance, and find a way to push past the experiences
that haunt her. When fate boldly steps in and introduces itself into
Jerusalem's and Jill's lives, they realize that the challenges we meet
in life hold the power to open us to a higher, more meaningful
existence. Will they both be able to view the world for what it really
is under the clear truth of who they are and what they are capable of
becoming together? Does beauty really lie in the eye of the beholder?
Experience the power of love on this redemptive journey where the
purpose of the tribulations in one's life, will be empowered to reveal
the gifts they bring.

A New York Times bestseller!

The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... 

I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .

Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy and should be read after Ruthless King. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.
