Escape to Osprey Cove

What Doug finds in the secret compartment of his new red Corvette will forever change his life. It will also change Catherine’s. Doug and Catherine come from two different worlds. Catherine’s world is one of privilege and wealth. Doug grew up dirt poor and full of envy of others who had the things that he wanted but could not have. His goal was to one day have all the things he coveted. Their worlds collide when Catherine, VP of a large New York City marketing firm, hires Doug. As soon as Doug learns of Catherine’s wealth, he sees Catherine as his ticket to all the things he covets. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married.

Poor boy meets rich girl should have resulted in happily ever after — not exactly. Doug quickly learns he also covets independence. Events begin to unfold in each of their lives. For Doug, it is his mysterious discovery in the secret compartment of the Corvette. For Catherine, it is a business meeting with Alex Droxell at the Osprey Cove Lodge. When Catherine enters the beautiful and serene lodge, it’s as though she is entering another place and time. The lodge is an escape from the nightmare she is living back home.

Authors Note: The Osprey Cove Lodge series is uniquely written, spanning seven geographic locations from the scenic Canadian region of the Rideau lakes to the beautiful shores of the Caribbean. An interesting web of mystery develops as the characters’ lives intertwine. The setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge series was born from my love of the beauty of this region in Canada. The description of the lodge is so beautiful and inviting that you will want to pack your bags and head there. The series is written in a continuing fashion; please be sure to read the books in the order written.

Meet Luisa Marietta Gold

Luisa Marietta Gold was born and educated in Pennsylvania, where she spent a large part of her adult life and worked for a large corporation. After her only daughter was born, she relocated to North Carolina, where she worked as a Realtor and began running a recreational business with her husband. She currently resides on eleven acres near a lake reminiscent of the Rideau lake chain that provides the setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge Series. The series was born from her love of that region of Canada, the outdoors, and lake life. Many years were spent enjoying the Rideau, staying in lodges, and for a time, her privately-owned cottage. Among her many interests are painting, cooking, baking. And of course, writing and storytelling. But it’s the simple things of life that bring the most enjoyment — the beauty of the trees outside the window of her writing room as they change with the seasons and watching her kitties interact and play. Nearly all of these interests and life experiences are reflected in her books.

Pharaoh’s Slave

An ancient history sunken beneath the tides – A remote mountainous place forgotten by the rest of the world – And a buried past that holds the key to possibly both mankind’s destruction and its salvation. All that stands in the way is a slave girl destined for either redemption or hell and a man left to live out an obscure existence and yet now might be humanity’s last best hope for freedom, even as an ancient demon threatens all. The only question left is, who will get to the key first? Pharaoh’s Slave is the exciting story of the pursuit of harmony and of what the right resonances of choice can inspire. It is a story about the choices that decide heaven or hell and last but not least, it’s the story of the adventure to be entailed when a promise is made by the Author of all Life, and its journey to fulfillment even if it is 6,000 years in the making. Read to discover how a key from the past unlocks one righteous man’s future and authors in the rebirth of a nation long left in the ashes of pre-antiquity history. As ancient sleeping evils rise to haunt the world of today, and monsters awaken to silence the foolishness of men, even so one will be taken on a journey of faith to see that God truly does know the End from the Beginning.

Meet Guy Stanton III

Hello Dear Reader, Welcome to the world of exciting fiction that I have been blessed to write. I write in many different genres (sometimes within the same book) with an overall Gospel related theme running throughout. Some of what I write I draw from personal experiences and some from my God given ability to empathize. In any regard I write to educate the soul, fascinate the mind, and guide the flesh. Please do let me know how I succeed or don’t succeed in doing those things. I welcome feedback from my readers and fans unconditionally. Know this however; I do not write the stories I do to please people. There are story lines I write that will no doubt trigger some and make others angry. The purpose of my writing is to meaningfully relate truth, sometimes often hidden ones and to do that means I will offend at least someone. My goal is not to become wealthy as an author, by writing what people supposedly want. I do not say these things to warn you off of my stories, but rather to give you a heads up that what I write is unique and perhaps very different than anything else you may have ever read. So give my work a try and see if you like my flavor of tea. I always attempt to keep several of my books available for free on this platform so it costs you nothing to sample the wares so to speak. That said free review copies of any of my literary works are available to those who reach out and ask for them for the purpose of an honest review. Have a blessed time reading my imaginative and sometimes highly speculative thoughts, Guy S. Stanton, III

Meet Karen Fenech

My first novel, Unholy Angels was written over a two-year period and, in part, in some very unlikely places such as line-ups at deli-counters and cash registers, and doctor and dentist waiting rooms. While I was out running errands, I jotted down scenes for the story in a notebook I toted around in my purse, and then typed them up when I returned home. Writing novels is what I have wanted to do since I was ten-years-old and undertook to write a book based on my beloved Nancy Drew mysteries. As I grew older, I continued to read mysteries but I found that as much as I enjoyed attempting to solve the puzzle, I became enthralled whenever a new development occurred in the romantic relationships of the characters. When I thought of writing Unholy Angels, I knew it would have to be a romance. Of course, my love of mystery and suspense meant that while my characters were finding love, they would also face life-threatening danger. I live with my husband and daughter. When I’m not writing, or spending time with my family, you can usually find me curled up with a good book, or out shopping for one.
