She knew too much, and she’d seen too much.
And the police refused to help.
Knowing that she was to be the next scheduled death, Kelly Campbell hid under head to toe black leather and a tinted motorcycle helmet and ran for her life.
When the weather turned cold, she turned south.
She ended up in North Carolina, home to one of the most famed and eligible NFL football stars in the whole league; only she didn’t know that. She thought he was a businessman. Not being a huge fan, all she knew was that he was incredibly attractive, kind, generous, and that she was safe with him.
Or was she?
His brand of fame proved to be all but deadly, but his fame wasn’t nearly as lethal as his attraction. He kept her safe and protected. All except for her heart.
Poor and without dowry—and even worse—now orphaned, Miss Carly Blakemore is thrown into the Victorian world without aid. Carly is forced to seek a position as governess in the house of Lord Huntington, the Earl of Dunfordshire—a man alone in his own right—and under suspicion for the tragic murder of his well-known and adulteress wife. His governess’s honesty and forthrightness quickly offend his noble person, finding himself reeling from her constant evaluation of his lack of parenting skills. However, in the midst of his resentments, he finds himself strangely drawn in by her very no-nonsense ways that drive him to madness. Carly stands her ground in head-to-head battles of will that take her to the brink of dismissal.
Carly and the earl continually fight the feelings growing between them. Both are oblivious to the clouds of deceit and intrigue that are growing around the manor house, some bent upon removing the beautiful, headstrong governess permanently. A final desperate chase leads to an interception of a ship upon the high seas headed for the Mediterranean and a secret society of white-slave traders, opening the way for this book’s sequel.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”
~ Robert Frost

I once lived a place that was a complete disaster, and I used to think that it didn't affect me. I ran a successful business and I just thought that it was the sign of a "genius". The problem was that real genius means being organized, real genius means efficiency, real genius means minimizing waste. So after a few hard learned lessons, I came up with a system that you can follow to keep your house and your workspace clean.
Clean doesn't just mean a pretty desk, clean means an organized mind, clean transcends into how you run your life, what emotions you feel. Don't believe me? Try my method and you will see the difference is dramatic, you'll never want to go back!
We all have failed. Cringing under the awful sting of regret and disappointment, we ask the familiar question: “What next?” We feel that our life is over, that we will never recover, that we are doomed to remain forever in our rut of defeat.
We couldn’t, however, be further from the truth.
In When We Have Failed-What Next?, K.P. Yohannan graciously takes us on a journey toward a bright and hopeful future. He again and again depicts God’s unfailing love for us and His marvelous ability to bring out His very best for our lives, especially in the midst of our failure.
Look up, for the best is truly yet to come.

What if, in the darkest depths of despair, you suddenly had a chance to live that life?
Would you have the courage to chase that dream, even if you had to leave your friends, family and everything you knew behind?
Would you take that chance?
Theopolis James Logan is about to get that chance.

"I was surprised by how much I really, really liked this
book. I have not jumped on the whole "fallen angel" bandwagon, just
as I didn't jump on all of the vampire stories that came out after Twilight.
This is not your typical fallen angel story. It is one that has left me
breathlessly waiting for the next one in the series. Hurry up please!!!"

"It takes rare talent for a man to write a novel from a male
POV and have it published to great critical and commercial acclaim. But it
takes a miracle for that same male, or in this case males, to write a novel
from the POV of a teenage girl and have it turn out as incredibly as did the new
StoneHouse YA by Aaron Patterson and Chris White, AIREL. From the first
sentence, I felt compelled to dive into this young woman's story and just as
importantly, I felt like I personally knew her, which means I laughed, stressed
and cried right along with her. A beautifully written and crafted fiction about
teenage innocence, faith, loss and love. A must read for teens and adults
--Vincent Zandri, International Bestselling Author of The
Remains, The Innocent, and Concrete Pearl
"I am happy to say that this novel is one of my favorites of
its kind. I never thought I could read a novel like this and be so swept away!
I am always willing to try new books, but I usually steer clear of this kind of
novel. Not anymore! Not when I can be so engrossed into the character's story,
like I was with the beautiful AIREL, that before I know, it's over. I kept
turning the pages, wanting to, no-NEEDING, to know what was going to happen
--Molly Edwards, Willow Spring, NC
