Atonement

Legacy

Book 1
Celtic Muse Publishing, LLC

He only wants to be forgiven for the hideous things he did.

It’s taken him a long time, but Vic Walters finally has the life he always wanted. His beautiful wife, Laura, was the answer to his dreams, and he’s totally smitten with the kids he never thought he’d have. He has money, a home, cars, clothes, and his family. Love and laughter should fill his days, but horror haunts Vic, and all he can think about are the three women he never meant to hurt. And hurt them he did—physically. He knows it wasn’t his fault. He understands why and how it happened. That, however, does nothing to assuage his guilt. He doesn’t need a miracle. He needs atonement. And there’s only one way to get it.

In the kickoff to the Legacy series, the second spinoff of the Love Under Construction series and following the Citadel series, Atonement is as poignant as a Nicholas Sparks novel with all the makings of true romance and a little humor thrown in. You’ll visit the Walters clan again, and then head straight into uncharted territory as Vic makes three pilgrimages that will change his life forever.

Buy this “sweet with heat” romance from the heart today and meet the biggest, baddest teddy bear of an Italian east of the Mississippi!

He has no idea how sexy he is.

Even as a successful construction business owner, Tony Walters’ ex-wife’s mental illness almost drove him over the edge. Too many years loveless and abused has left him afraid to try to meet another woman, much less form a relationship.

She's just too shy to even meet his eyes.

In one instant left a childless widow, Nikki Wilkes couldn’t imagine romance would ever be in her life again, much less passion and deep, never-ending love.

Two mature adults sidestep each other for five years until fate brings them together in a sweet, passionate, erotic adventure of sexual exploration and self-discovery. A perfect mixture of Southern charm and hospitality and European sophistication, the tall Italian-American sweeps the funny, smart, kinky Kentucky girl off her feet and into his bed, and together the sparks they throw off ignite their world.

The new home they build together draws them closer to his family and each other and into a new life filled with laughter and love, not to mention a big kitchen full of friends and fun as Nikki becomes the glue that holds the family together with her cooking, hugs, and mothering.

But just as everything looks rosy, a secret-fueled mystery unfolds when an unknown threat attempts to ruin Tony’s business and maybe even hurt him. As the criminal activity becomes more and more focused on destroying their happiness, it’s obvious it’s personal. And someone’s going to get hurt – or worse. It’s just a matter of time.

Sex, humor, and secrets collide in this blistering start to the series to prove that they’re not getting older – they’re just getting started!

Combo volume contains The Groundbreaking, a prequel that offers readers background on the nine main characters in the series.

BONUS: Each book in the Love Under Construction series features the recipe of a dish mentioned in the books. It’s like dessert meets drama!

WARNING: Strong, graphic, kinky sexual scenes and graphic criminal violence. Not intended for readers under the age of 18.

When no one is what they seem …

 

Annabeth and Katie Reynolds-Walters want another baby, but this time Annabeth wants to carry. That rules out the Walters men as sperm donors, and Katie’s father won’t even consider it. But Katie has an ace up her sleeve. Once she’s done enough digging, she discovers a brother from her father’s indiscretion with a neighbor woman. He’d be the perfect candidate.

 

At first, everything is fine. Katie is nervous about asking him to donate, but he’s not the least bit shy about asking to move into their house. His work on a super-supplement would go a lot faster that way, he reasons, with a stable environment. It isn’t long before he asks Katie if she’d like to be a test subject. After all, who couldn’t use more energy?

 

Annabeth has problems of her own. Clayton bought a new accounting software program, complete with a trainer, Christina, a blond bombshell with designs on Annabeth. Before long, Annabeth’s going a little too far with their friendship, and she knows it.

 

But the supplement isn’t a supplement, and Annabeth’s assertions that she’s a happily married woman fall on deaf ears with Christina. Annabeth and Katie are up to their necks in things they never dreamed they’d be dealing with. There’s a crisis brewing, and a fiery one at that.

 

Legacy of Freedom takes us back to the Walters of Louisville, Kentucky, the hottest Italian-American family you’ve ever met. Grab a copy today and hang on—it’s a wild ride! 

I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.


So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 


We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 


The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.

It's a number one bestseller on every list. It's a love story for the ages. And it's a mystery.

At least its author is. Nick Roberts has never been seen. He doesn't do interviews. He doesn't answer fan mail. He doesn't do late-night talk shows, or book signings, or conferences. No one knows who he is. Everyone is looking for him; websites have been set up offering rewards for finding him.

Four old friends plan their annual road trip. It's been a toss-up every year, with each being different (and some not so good). But this year Russ's idea is to find Nick Roberts. With an address stolen from the accounting files of the publishing house, the four friends set out to find the elusive Roberts and make names for themselves. And as three begin to get distracted - Russ by women, Michael by liquor, and Jim by porn or who knows what - only one stays the course: Steve Riley, a journalist from Knoxville, is determined to find Roberts and land the story of the century.

His dedication to his mission is complicated by a deluge, a flash flood, and an obviously incorrect address. But as time and passion have their way, Steve begins to wonder if his trip will be successful in any other ways. And if his suspicions are correct, what will he do?

Even more unsettling is the real question: If he finds Nick Roberts, will he tell?

Set in the foothills of the beautiful Smoky Mountains, The Celtic Fan is two stories - the story of a journalist following his biggest story ever, and of a wounded soldier and the girl with whom he falls in love post-World War II. Throughout the pages, Bill and Claire's tragic tale winds its way through Steve's story, a story he never thought he'd tell.

WARNING: This book contains sensual love scenes and, while not, explicit, they are unsuitable for readers under the age of 18. Reader discretion is advised.
