Powers' Pulse

Chicago Series

Book 2
Jennifer Driscoll
Free sample

Hailey Powers left Chicago at nineteen, vowing to never look back even if it meant leaving CJ Montgomery, and a piece of her heart, behind.  She has changed in her time away - grown stronger, done things no one could have predicted, and raised a daughter almost entirely on her own.  When she returns to Chicago under the most difficult of circumstances, she will be thrust into CJ’s life and career, the very things he’s made without her.  She’ll need his help and his heart.  Can she go home?  And when she does, will it be to a place or to a person?  

 

CJ Montgomery has made peace with her leaving, at least that is what he tells himself to get through his days and nights.  Thirteen years have passed since Hailey walked away - hand in hand with CJ’s best friend, Jamie, no less. Are thirteen years long enough for a heart to forget?  He’s tried to let her go, made a life as a surgeon, a brother, a son.  He’s dated more than his share of women - more than his brothers’ shares too.  But there will be only one Hailey in his life, and he has always believed in second chances.  When she reappears in his life, in his hospital, and in need of his help, will the choices Hailey made in life keep them reliving the past or give them a second chance at the future?

 

Powers’ Pulse is a story of friendship, secrets, and letting love lead you home - no matter where or who that might be.  Love finds a way.

After a boating accident in his teen years left him feeling guilty over the death of a child, Kerry Montgomery has resigned himself to a steady, quiet life in the towers of the Chicago 

Loop.  There are expectations, of course.  He’ll marry for status, even if the society set pinches his every last nerve, and he’ll carry on the Montgomery name, even if he can’t forgive himself for past mistakes.  What’s unexpected?  His attraction to Molly Winters.  She doesn’t have a society name, connections, or money.  She’s more than ten years younger than him.  Not to mention, she’s like a sister - his youngest brother’s best friend.  But most importantly, she has a child - a complete no-go for him.  He’s not supposed to want her, but if he can get over his fears, he might just find a future nobody expected.

 

Molly Winters is not interested in Kerry, his money, or his pain.  She’s had plenty of her own.  Pregnant at sixteen, betrayed by her father, lied to by her mom - trust doesn’t come easy. Before traveling with Kerry to Saint Kitts for his younger brother’s wedding, she was content to raise her son, help her community, and run a small catering business. When she finds herself drawn into his spell, she will need to figure out if she can trust him with her feelings or if it’s all just a little island magic playing tricks on her heart.

 

Winters’ Season is a story of heartbreaking guilt, the search for forgiveness, and the redemptive power of love.  Love changes everything.

This important book focuses on the critical role of educational achievement for the wellbeing and success of vulnerable youth in adulthood. It is concerned with three interconnected issues: the support which is or should be afforded to youth ageing out of state care to enable them to fulfil their academic potential; the interdependence of social aspects of ‘care’ and educational attainment for children growing up in state care; and the conditions which are pre-requisite for transition to fully autonomous adulthood, together with the implications of these for the state’s responsibilities to care leavers.

These issues are addressed through a review of international literature based on the educational outcomes and life-chances of youth graduating from state care, analysis of the findings of a three-year qualitative study following the educational transitions of young people, and the use of theoretical frameworks to explore the complexities of children’s experiences of the state care system. In doing so the book balances predominantly needs-based discourses with a children’s right perspective, focusing on competence rather than vulnerability and promoting the development of the skills needed for autonomous adulthood.

Reconceptualising Transitions from Care to Independence

should be considered essential reading for researchers, practitioners and policy makers in the fields of education, childhood studies and adoption and fostering services. Additionally, the issues addressed are of wider relevance to youth transitions to adulthood. Youth ageing out of care provide a particularly insightful case study into the broader cohort of young people entering the workforce in an era of a globalised economy and austerity.
"Beautiful. Poignant." —Rachel Van Dyken, #1 NYT bestselling author


Everyone knew Bruno.

Devilishly handsome.

Ruthless criminal.

Cut-throat businessman.


When a phone call changed my life, I refused to let anyone in.

Helpless, my best friends went to the only man in town she knew would help.

…Bruno, the notorious mobster who’s feared by everyone, including me.


And he had no problem breaking down my door.

Scooping me into his strong, capable arms.

Whispering soothing words in my ear.

Chasing away the fear threatened to swallow me.


But then he did the one thing I never expected him to do…he stayed.


Can the man who’s spoken about in whispers become my greatest savior?
