Teach Me Love

Jacob Greene, sexy multimillionaire CEO of Greene Publishing is a broken man desperate to find reason in his life. Losing Katherine, the love of his life, makes a once gentle and kindhearted man into someone dark and miserable. 

Abigail Anderson, single mother, second grade teacher, is tired of living her life alone. But the only man she's ever loved betrayed her and left her in the dark. 

Now, three years later, their paths cross. A rocky beginning soon turns into something more. Real. The feeling is mutual and their feelings grow. But secrets always have a way of coming out. 

Will Jacob and Abigail be able to learn how to love again or will they suffer alone for the rest of their lives?

This will be a stand alone. 

Vision of Love (Infinity #1)

You can say I had it all. The fancy house, top of the line car, lots of friends and more money than anyone could ever imagine. On the outside, we were the perfect family. No one knew about my abusive father and my mother who drank herself into oblivion every night. My name is Karly and I have scars, deep scars that no one knows about, and when my parents died I was left alone and on my own, to fight through life with no help.

When it came to life and happiness, I had it all until my world was turned upside down. My name is Nicholas and my wife, the love of my life, left me and our new baby girl without as much as an explanation. I didn’t want to accept it, but after our divorce was final and four long years passed, I started to lose hope that she’d ever come back. Emma was growing so fast and I needed help. My sister recommended that I hire her friend, Karly, as Emma’s nanny. I took a chance on bringing another woman into my little girl’s life. Did I do the right thing? 

As many days and nights are spent together, feelings can no longer be denied and a relationship is formed.

Life is about taking chances and learning how to fall, but when the past comes back, will they be strong enough to fight through and trust each other? Or will all they worked for fall apart?

Reaching Out for You (Never Letting Go #1)

Adam and Sophia were best friends but when tragedy strikes it's more than Adam can handle and he leaves Sophia alone in the dark. 

Four years later, Adam and Sophia are reunited and the sparks between them return but is it too late? 

Sophia is happy again and has let go of the darkness. She has great friends and a sweet boyfriend name Kyle. Now that Adam is back how will she be able to balance her boyfriend and her best friend? 

The darkness always finds you again but will Adam be able to save her or leave her again?

Take Me Away

After breaking up with her long time boyfriend, Jackson DeLacey, eighteen-year-old Zara Borzilleri promises herself to focus on school and play the game she loves. Stepping foot onto the lacrosse field, in front of a cheering crowd, pushes aside the pain and reminds her of the future ahead at least until she graduates in four years.

Lacrosse star Treston 'The King' Parker dominates the field and to everyone else he has it all. Behind closed doors he's just Treston Parker- a monster full of secrets, deep, dark secrets only he knows. He won't allow anyone to get close and for the past two years he's kept his promises to her, but never his last promise: falling in love again.

One weekend he gives in and everything changes when he meets Zara. The rules change and she sees Treston for who he truly is, not what everyone else sees. But to Treston, meeting Zara means nothing, even though her blue eyes invades his mind.

We can be friends, but don't ask about my past or where I go. 

He draws the lines.
She erases his lines.

Can Zara help Treston escape his painful past before he sinks deeper into oblivion?


S Moose has more books published other than what we have listed above. You can find out more about her, her current releases and new releases on her Amazon author Page, Facebook page, and her Goodreads page

****Author Spotlight on attending author Victoria Ashley***

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author. 

Victoria Ashley grew up in Rockford, IL and has had a passion for reading for as long as she can remember. After finding a reading app where it allowed readers to upload their own stories, she gave it a shot and writing became her passion. 

She lives for a good romance book with bad boys that are just highly misunderstood and is not afraid to be caught crying during a good read. When she's not reading or writing about bad boys, you can find her watching her favorite shows such as Sons Of Anarchy, Dexter and True Blood.

She is the author of Wake Up Call and This Regret and is currently working on more works for 2015.

It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about. 

Since she began posting stories online, she's garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination...or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain... Usually it's cheese.

M. Mabie usually doesn't speak in third-person either. She promises.

***Author Spotlight on attending author Kemmie Michaels***

I absolutely love to write. Seriously. I smile darn near the entire time. I'm a total word-nerd.

But even more, I love a good love story. I reread the first kiss a few times before I read on...even in my own books. That moment gets me every time no matter how often I revisit that beautiful connection.

In the world of reality, I have a loving and tolerant husband who smiles and rolls his eyes every time I tell him about my latest fictional love affair. I have two personality-rich pre-teen boys who keep me on my toes.

I studied English/Journalism at Miami University in Ohio, have a Master's Degree in Secondary Education from the University of Dayton and I spent five years teaching even more personality-rich pre-teens. For some sick reason, I actually enjoyed teaching junior high. Now as a stay-at-home mom, I'm clinging to that status by throwing my hat in the author's ring.

Thursday, March 19, 2015

***Author Spotlight on attending author Heather Leigh***

I am a reader first and foremost, that's what led me to begin writing down all of the stories crammed into my head.

I've always wondered about fame and fortune, and whether or not it's worth it to give up most of your private life and time to be in the public eye. The more I thought about it, the more stories built up inside me. Eventually, they had to come out. That's what began the Famous Series.

I like to write about the dark side of fame and how it truly affects those living in the fishbowl of today's celebrity-obsessed culture. 

After growing up in New England, I currently live outside of Atlanta, GA with my husband and two children.

When I'm not spinning tales of the rich and famous, I'm a part time pharmacist and a full time procrastinator. I love chocolate, dogs with squished in faces, and the Boston Red Sox.

***Author Spotlight on attending author Kate Roth***

Inspired by music, film, art and the wealth of stories she has heard through her career as a professional hair stylist, Kate Roth has been dreaming up love stories since junior high. 

Kate's first two novels, New Adult romance THE LOW NOTES and New Adult Paranormal romance RECKLESS RADIANCE were originally released by Rebel Ink Press but have since been re-released as second editions and indie works. Her other works include Adult Contemporary romances NATURAL HARMONY and SWAY (both from the Confession Records collection), erotic romances, LAST RESORT and BEST LAID PLANS, and the holiday collaboration, MISTLETOE & HOLLYWOOD. And she is hard at work on her next few novels. She is a small business owner and lives in Indiana with her husband, Adam and their dog, Sampson.

****Author Spotlight on attending author Kathy Coopmans****

Kathy is a Michigan native where she lives with her husband Tony. They have two son's Aaron and Shane. 

She is a sports nut. Her favorite sports include NASCAR, Baseball and Football.
By day she is a hairstylist and loves her job. 

She has always been an avid reader and at the young age of 50 decided she wanted to write. She claims she can do several things at once and still stay on task. Her favorite quote is "I got this."

Friday, March 6, 2015


I've been writing for as long as I can remember~journals, poems, short stories. I've always wanted to write a novel and started several over the years, but for some reason could never see them through to the end. 

Until Eva came along.

I was abandoned as a child, at about the age of 2 or 3 which I strangely never gave a lot of thought to. Then I became a mother. When my youngest child was about 2, I watched him sleeping one night as I often did. But this night, I was gripped by this heart-wrenching realization that he was about the age I was when my parents left me. Something stirred inside of me, and eventually Eva was born. "Leaving Eva" began as a story of a girl who was heartlessly abandoned, and then her storytook on a life of its own. It was no longer the story that I began, and it became something else entirely.

I've always been a late bloomer, but I am happy that I've finally gotten in touch with my inner Author. She's always been there lying dormant, reflecting in other parts of my life. Now she is awake and alive, shining through me everyday.

I am very fortunate to have a wonderfully supportive husband, two beautiful children, and an incredible family. I have a career that is rewarding and challenging where I get to work with amazing, funny, and talented people every day. I'm a wife, mom, blogger, boss, and Amazon best selling Author.

Writing has been an escape, a refuge, and an outlet for me. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to channel my energy and my creativity in this way. With two books in the Eva series and a standalone novel, I Run to You, I am currently working on a fantasy series, The Lost Children; the Forgotten. Writing continues to give me joy and happiness as I watch my stories unfold before me.

***Author Spotlight on attending author JM Witt***

I'm a stay-at-home mom with four young children and one extremely supportive husband. We've been married for nine years and reside in Metro Detroit, Michigan.

I've dreamed of writing romance novels since I was little. After having baby #4, who may or may not have been fathered by Christian Grey, I decided it was time to pursue my dreams.

When I'm not volunteering at the schools of my children, running to various appointments, enjoying time with my friends and my book club, dating my husband, or avoiding cleaning my house, I'm writing!

I love music and believe that books and music can't exist without the other. My goal is for you to read more than a good book, but for you to have an experience!

***Author Spotlight on attending author HJ Bellus***

I am just a simple country girl getting one story out of my head at a time. I was raised in small town, 
USA and still reside there with my husband and children. I am a huge country music fan and am 
inspired by it everyday. I live and love country life, and you will find those elements in my books. I also adore strong and brave lead female characters, and strive to be a courageous and independent woman in everyday life. In my opinion, life is no fun without a good sense of humor, sprinkles, cheese whiz, and candy. It is the simple things that warm my heart. 
Live life your way, HJ Bellus
