Hannah and JR live with their ten-year-old son, Arlo, in a tiny house on the lake. Their relationship is dysfunctional, complicated by drugs, depression, and an affair. Arlo is a meek little boy, living in the shadows of their relationship and receiving little in the way of acknowledgement.
Things likely would have continued this way, but a chance meeting with a new friend changes everything. Arlo’s new friend gives him hope for a brighter future, one where he can be free of his parents’ indifference. No one ever expected the innocent friendship to lead detectives to two dead bodies at the lake house. Who is responsible for their deaths? And where is Arlo?
Love, lust, seduction, suicide, and personal life experience all rolled into one beautiful intellectual intercourse that will make you cry, or even think about life itself. This is a short book of some of my favorite poems I have written at a very young age.
Linda DuPont has a successful career as a Fine Art Auctioneer on cruise ships until she marries the love of her life and settles on the island of Cozumel, Mexico. There she partners with her husband successfully growing a tourist diving operation, boosting local artists and raising three children. Tragedy strikes when her husband, Dan dies. She sells the business and moves to Bellingham, Washington to be close to family. Eventually, she establishes as a famous art auctioneer in demand across America. She is approached by a Texan billionaire to help sell some of his art collection unaware he is a king pin in a Colombian drug cartel. As the DEA begins to investigate art sales linked to cocaine dealers, she is eliminated as a loose end.
A sheltered billionaire heiress. A mysterious, protective stranger. A serendipitous love story borne out of a tragedy.
Megan Montecillo’s peaceful life suddenly turns upside down as she finds herself the target of a murder plot and accused by her own kin of crimes she never committed. She stands to lose all the wealth she inherited, and worse, suffer in prison for life.
Unexpectedly, she receives protection from a secretive but skillful Richard Peterson who made it his personal business to save her and clear her name of all charges.
Richard’s shady, suspicious background aside, wild sparks fly between them even as their personalities clashed.
Scared and alone with no one to trust, Megan has no choice but to depend on him and his four friends, who look up to him as their ringleader.
All together they find ways to evade the killers on various occasions as Richard and Megan struggle to come to terms with the strong physical attraction they feel towards each other.
But what if he is exactly the kind of man Megan is running away from?
Will Megan survive with her life and wealth—and heart—intact?
