THE LONG VIEW by Connie Almony: J.T. MacGregor is ex-FBI and training with terrorists. When his former boss makes an unusual request, J.T. wonders about his motives and how he can use them to his advantage. Destiny Long is no stranger to her father’s covert world of catching terrorists, but who is he after now? When J.T., the man behind the one kiss she will never forget joins a fitness club owned by a suspected member of ISIS and he’s found praying head-first into a tasseled rug, she wonders what side of the war on terror is J.T. MacGregor really on.

TAKEN by Sally Bradley: Cam Winters has never talked about his past, about life before he became a Christian. Jordan Foster knows that Cam’s a strong, caring man–a man she can see herself with. But he refuses to ask her out for fear of what her brother, one of his closest friends, might say. So Jordan takes things into her own hands. When Cam admits to sharing her feelings, the two fall quickly in love–just as that past that Cam won’t ever talk about returns for Cam and those he loves. A group which now includes Jordan.

on the ropesON THE ROPES by Hallee Bridgeman: Doctor Ruth Burnette is placed in witness protection after witnessing a Russian mafia execution. Just a week before the trial, Victor Kovalev finds her. Memories of planning her wedding with Victor are wiped clean by the vision of his father executing three men. Does he want to help her survive to her testimony, or is he trying to stop it all together?

OUT OF CIRCULATION by Heather Day Gilbert: When Russian mobsters threaten small-town librarian Katie McClure, she is forced to accept an offer of protection from Manhattan bodyguard Ace Calhoun. As they race the clock to find a long-hidden bank stash, Katie discovers too late that Ace might be the wrong man to trust with her life…and her heart.

DANGEROUS ALTERNATIVE by Kelli Hughett: Summer in Southern California doesn’t get any hotter than this. When Levi Boulter agrees to work for the FBI behind the scenes in Hollywood, he never plans on becoming an operative working to thwart a plan to assassinate the President’s wife—or on keeping a deadly secret from Mahari, the love of his life. When Mahari is kidnapped, Levi makes the gamble of his life in order to save her. Will Levi’s secret divide them forever, or will they come together in time to stop an assassination?

IDENTITY THEFT by Alana Terry: After losing her fiancé in a devastating accident, Lacy meets Kurtis, an Alaska state trooper, and his delightful four-year-old daughter who would love nothing more than to make Lacy her new mom. Things could be perfect, except Lacy can’t shake the nagging suspicion that her fiancé isn’t dead like the police reports claim. All she wants is closure, but as she seeks out real answers, she discovers how deadly the truth can actually be.

OBSESSION by Rachel Trautmiller: A surge in crime has left two homeless women dead and Detective Amanda Nettles’ Alzheimer’s-riddled mother as the prime suspect. As his wife embarks on a dangerous game of hide-and-seek with a remorseless serial killer, FBI Agent Baker Jackson Robinson knows he can’t sit idly while the city of Charlotte destroys Amanda’s career a second time. Is her near decade-long obsession with protecting her hometown bigger than the needs of her family? Or are they one and the same?

SCENT OF DANGER by Alexa Verde: To find her missing sister, small-town cop Maya Hutchinson risks her life by posing as her glamorous twin. Under escalating attacks, Maya accepts protection from dashing senator’s son Connor McNamara. Cop turned PI, Connor McNamara has his own secret mission and is forced to choose between family loyalty and love. When the scent of danger draws near, will Connor and Maya survive long enough to forgive and accept each other?

She pulled her legs up and wrapped her arms around them. “Can’t sleep?”

A wry look crossed his face. “Signing my own death warrant has taken a bit of a toll on me.”

“Victor—”

He shook his head. “I am doing the right thing. I went about it the right way, and there’s a solid case now against everyone I know of in the family. I’ll likely be testifying for months at different trials.”

She studied his face in the faint light coming from a lamp inside the building, seeing a muscle tic in his jaw. “But?”

“But it’s my father. And there’s an emotional connection I didn’t expect to feel. Something I’m severing with every word I will speak on that stand tomorrow. It was one thing to talk about it privately, in the office of the FBI. It will be another to look at him and say the words.”

They sat in silence while Ruth digested what he said. Finally, she replied, “I can’t pretend to understand that. But I know that to follow Christ, sometimes we have to leave the dead to be buried by someone else. I think that is fitting for your circumstance.” She paused. “Have you ever tried to talk about God to your father?”

With a short bark of a laugh, he shook the water off his hand. “Once. He punched me in the jaw and told me to concentrate on winning my next fight and not some deity that had poisoned my mind. That was a couple of years ago.”

Remembering the few times she’d had personal conversations with Antoly Kovalev, she said, “I imagine that trying was a bit intimidating.”

Turning his head to look at her, his eyes reflected the weak lighting from inside the building. “There are so many things you couldn’t possibly imagine, Ruth. The Kovalevs are evil, and I long for the day I sign the papers to change my name.”

Christian Fiction Friday: April 29th

Mara ran the sweeper under the pulpit. For some reason, in the sanctity of this building, even without Major next to her, she never felt afraid, never felt like looking over her shoulder. As the song on her MP3 player changed to the next one, she looked out over the pews and smiled. She had loved every minute of working on this building and would miss it when she left one day.

As she wound the sweeper cord back in place, the side door opened and Brenda rushed in. Mara frowned and slipped the earbuds out of her ears. “What’s wrong? Is Jeremy okay?”

Brenda dashed up the steps to the podium. “Oh, Mara, thank God I found you.” She held out yesterday’s newspaper. “Jeremy told me that a reporter came and talked to him, but he didn’t tell me that he’d given her pictures, too!”

Her stomach turned to water and her pulse pounded in her neck painfully. She stared at a picture of her face taken while she tied the tank top onto Jeremy’s leg, right there on the front page of the lifestyle section of the Gainesville newspaper. How many thousands of people got that newspaper daily? How many online sources ran the headlines?

Brenda said something, but she couldn’t hear her through the roaring in her ears. The safety she had felt moments earlier vanished as if it had never existed. “I have to go,” she whispered, dropping the cord she clutched in her hand. Leaving her friend standing on the stage, she jumped down and ran down the aisle.

When she burst through the doors and into the hot Florida sunshine, she felt the world start spinning around her. “What to do, what to do, what to do?” she whispered over and over again. Seconds later, the phone in her hand vibrated, startling her so that she nearly dropped it. She recognized the number and answered, saying by way of a greeting, “Get me out of here!”

Scanning all the faces, disappointment overtook her nervousness. “He’s not here.”“He’s been here every day for over a month. Of course he’s here.”

They made their way to the line. Ruth checked her watch again. She couldn’t afford to be late for rounds. She may have to skip coffee this morning.

“Hello.”

At the sound of his voice, her heart lurched in her chest. Turning, she spied Victor Kovalev standing behind her in the line. He must have entered the shop right behind her. He wasn’t much taller than her five-seven, with a lean build and dark hair that almost curled. Normally, she found herself getting lost in his rich brown eyes, but today, the purpling bruise and swollen left eye made her gasp. “What happened?”

“Wha—?” He stopped mid-word and gingerly touched his upper cheek. She could see the swollen bruising on his knuckles. “Oh, that. I had a fight last night.”

“You got into a fight?” Esther asked, frowning.

His eyebrows knit in a confused look, then he pulled the sports section from The Times out of his bag. On the front page, a color photo of a boxer in royal blue and bright red shorts punched another boxer wearing yellow and black shorts. Upon closer examination, she recognized Victor as the boxer in blue and red. “This is you?”

“It is.” He smiled a closed lip smile and took the paper back from her as a faint tinge of red covered his cheeks. “I thought you knew.”

“I don’t know much about boxing.” Despite social expectancies and personal space, despite the nervousness at even speaking to him this morning, the doctor in her took over and she took his chin in one hand and carefully but skillfully palpitated the area around his eye with her fingers. “Has a doctor seen this?”

He stood perfectly still while she examined him but grinned at her with a smile that had started to bare straight white teeth. His smile made her heart skip a beat. “Yes, ma’am. She just did.”

Flustered, she stepped away and gave her order at the counter. As soon as Esther and Victor ordered, they joined the throng waiting for their drinks. Esther gently nudged her and nodded toward Victor. Before she could talk herself out of it, she blurted, “Would you like to go to church with me tonight?”

They always met at this coffee shop, the one where they originally ran into each other, every morning at 6:30. She realized after the third meeting that he intentionally came to meet her, and very quickly started to look forward to it. He’d asked her out daily for about six weeks. Because her residency schedule proved so grueling, she had turned him down, but she always found time for church, and she so wanted to get to know him better.

“Church?” His smile started to fade and his eyebrows lowered suspiciously.

Her stomach fell. He looked so taken aback, so confused. What had she done? “You have an objection to church?”

“I don’t know.” Instantly, his face transformed back into a grin that lit up the whole room. “Why don’t we find out? What time?”

Christian Fiction Friday: August 28th

Welcome to this week’s edition of Christian Fiction Friday brought to you by me and my lovely and talented co-host, Alana Terry! This is a chance for Christian authors to post short snippets from their works in progress! Easy and fun!

This week, I finished a Christmas novella that is a second generation Jewel Series titled Christmas Star Sapphire. It follows the story of Madeline Viscolli and Joe Westcott. Here is a snippet from Chapter 5:

star sapphire boatMadeline stared at the sleek white sailboat docked at slip 67. Near the bow and at the stern, the words “Star Sapphire” surrounded a blue oval with a brilliant white starburst in the middle of it. The bright white of the deck of the ship nearly blinded her in the radiant November sunlight. A dark blue canopy stretched over the bridge of the boat, and the line of sleek portholes rising up out of the center of the deck gave evidence to the living area below deck. She could see the sails stored and ready among perfectly coiled ropes.

She knew she’d found the right boat. His bike sat next to a small grill on the dock. Both were chained to the dock railing. What confused her – and had caused her to walk the length of the dock and back once already – was that this was not a Westcott boat. It was an Elohim. Why would a Wescott Marine Wescott live on an Elohim vessel? It did not compute. She frowned, trying to mull that through when she saw the craft shifting in the still water, as if someone moved around inside, and she heard footfalls on stairs.

Her heart gave a little flutter. Maybe this wasn’t a good idea. She had a pretty strong backbone, and typically the opinions of others didn’t overtly affect her opinion of herself. However, an outright rejection from one Joe Westcott after the efforts she put into this little surprise might just be her undoing.

When she saw his head through the porthole, she shifted the sunglasses off of her face and onto the top of her head.

“Ahoy!” She called, loud enough for him to hear her through the gunwale. “Permission to come aboard, Captain?”

Joe emerged onto the main deck with graceful, surefooted motions born of years of practice. He spotted her and, as recognition dawned, his face lit in a blend of surprised smile and pale shock. “Madeline?”

“Maddie.” She corrected and hefted the picnic basket. “I come bearing a holiday feast.”
