Jemma Bowers hasn’t kissed anyone in over a thousand days. She knows—she’s counted.
For twenty-year-old Jemma, rules are not meant to be broken…even if she’s the one who created them. Friendships have boundaries, relationships mean trouble, and don’t even get her started on sex. Haunted by the death of her mother and her father’s abandonment, Jemma finds herself hungry for something meaningful and permanent, but is afraid of what may happen if she pursues it.
Jordan Capshaw can’t fight his addiction. Not even if it will cost him his career…
When Jemma finds Jordan drunk and barefoot in the street, she convinces him to get in her car. Aside from the fact he’s the lead singer of her favorite band and pretty much the rock star of her dreams, she quickly realizes his addiction is a monster neither of them can control.
Who knew choosing between a rock star and a fireman could be so difficult?
Emotions run high as Jemma soon finds herself caught between the troubled rock star and her growing affections for Vic Harper, a swoon-worthy firefighter from her past. But when her grandmother passes away, leaving her with no other family, Jemma’s world falls apart.
To save herself from further heartbreak, she risks it all by breaking her own rules, and putting her heart on the line.
After all, the heart just might be the biggest rule breaker of them all.

My Dream Writing Space…
My writing room never looks like this…normally there are at least four cups sitting on my desk. Most times my chair is full of washing. I hang it there after taking it out of the tumble dryer (yep my life is non-stop glamour) and it’s never that tidy…I’ve shoved everything else underneath my desk which was silly as you can still see it!
However, out of my tiny window, I can see my window box which I cram full of flowers. On my desk are flowers from my garden. As long as I can see beauty, and in my humble opinion flowers are stunning…I can write.
I have to write in complete silence which is hard with two teenage children who float in and out with their music blaring (I urge them to wear the expensive headphones they both demanded at Xmas only to be met with a shrug, “don’t know where they are” response) I resist the urge to enter their teenage caves, pick my way across their floor (a minefield of discarded clothes, food wrappers, and stuff) to locate them and ram them on their ears.
But I don’t’ need to be at home to write. I get idea’s in the car or doing shopping. I note them down on my phone for later. I think it’s important to get as much stimulation as possible as writing is a very unsociable profession. Being at a party recently gave me a great idea for a 45-minute comedy play. It’s important to live your life as well as write. Balance is the key 🙂

★★ THE DARKNESS WITHIN ★★
★ SYNOPSIS ★
The house next door holds a horrifying secret…
For as long as Claire Anderson can remember, the house next door to hers has been vacant. After the last owners passed away, the house fell into disrepair; practically unlivable conditions. She had even began to grow accustomed to the creepy little house next door.
But now the house holds a darkness with who’s living there and the secrets he has…
Her new neighbor, David Greer, is attractive, middle-aged, and friendly. At least, that’s what Claire’s mom, Jasmine, thinks, but Claire can’t ignore the bad vibe she gets from him. Maybe it’s because she’s not used to having a neighbor, or maybe it’s because her mom seems to have a thing for him. Then again, it could also be the strange looks he gives her when others aren’t looking. Claire isn’t one hundred percent sure what it is about him that gives her the creeps, but she sure as hell has to find out, and preferably before he gets too close to her and her mother.
Can Claire figure out what David is hiding behind the walls of his decrepit new home, or will she fall victim to the darkness within?
He readjusted the mask on his face as he walked closer to Holly’s shaking body. Her back was pressed flat against the wall and, despite the fact that her hands were tied behind her back; her feet were free of binds. When she saw that he was coming toward her, she began to kick her feet relentlessly; her mouth opened wide but only muffled sound came out.
Kneeling down in front of her, a smile stretched across his chapped lips. He held one hand behind his back, a knife gripped tightly in its clutches. He didn’t want her to see the knife yet. First, he was going to toy with her. He would be robbing himself of one of his favorite parts of the experience if he didn’t make her squirm first. He liked feeling like he was the one in control of his victim’s future. Because of him, they either lived or died. Some people might call it a God complex, but he called it self-assurance. It was his way of knowing that he mattered, and he knew that Natalie would be proud of him for taking initiative and doing what he loved. Toying with these girls the way he did, fueled his hunger, and made him feel. He was never as happy as he was when he was with his girls.
Holly turned her face away when his hand made contact with the skin of her cheek. He sighed as he brushed his fingers gently across the soft skin of her face, trailing down along her jawline to her chin, where he lifted her face to look at him. Her wide, green eyes stared back at him, a tear slipping from the corners before she closed them tight.
“You have nothing to fear,” he whispered, trying to gain her trust. He removed the gag from her mouth. It was merely a precaution while he was transporting her. Thanks to the country setting he chose this time, they were far from the nearest neighbors. In fact, she was the nearest neighbor, and the only person home was her sleeping little sister, whom she had been babysitting. “I won’t hurt you if you cooperate and do what I say.”
The only response that he received from her was a soft whimper.
“Look at me,” he demanded.
Holly flinched away from the harsh tone of his voice. A fat tear welled up in the corner of her eye and rolled down her pale cheek. Her throat was hoarse from the screaming she did earlier, but she still managed to choke out the word, “No.”
“Come on now, Holly. This won’t be any fun for me unless you play along.”
“Leave me alone,” she spat, enunciating every word while trying to turn her head away from him, but he only tightened his grip on her delicate face.
He clicked his tongue at her words. “Now, now. Open your eyes, or I’ll cut your eyelids off. That wouldn’t be any fun for you, now would it?”
She flinched at his words, but to his surprise, her eyes remained shut tight. “Screw you,” she growled through clenched teeth.
Sighing, he shook his head at the frail girl in front of him. “Either you open your eyes and speak to me, or I’ll go back to your house and see if that pretty little sister of yours will. What’s her name? Macy, is it?”
Shaking, her eyes stayed closed for a moment, thinking over his words. After about a minute of silence, she opened her eyes, glaring at him. “I will not be a part of your sick game. I know who you are.”
He tilted his head to the side, staring at her curiously. “You don’t say? What is it that you’ve heard?”
Holly’s glare deepened. “You murder girls for fun,” she spat angrily. “It’s like some sick game to you or something. You’re a monster,” she added; a new found courage, one that he would not allow, overcoming her.
Pulling his hand from behind his back, he pointed at himself with the tip of his knife as he asked, “Me? A monster?”
Her eyes widened at the sight of the knife, but she nodded nonetheless.
He curved his lips upwards into a sinister smile as he brought the knife up to her cheek, dragging it across her skin without actually cutting her. “I’m not going to kill you right now. I just want to play with you. If you do what I say, I might let you live.”
“You might?” she questioned; her voice shaking as she already knew the answer.
He nodded. “Life isn’t guaranteed, Holly.”
At his words, a noticeable shiver went through her. After a second, she whispered, “What happens if I don’t do what you say?”
Instantly he pushed the knife into her cheek, drawing blood and causing her to scream loudly. The piercing sound of her scream hit his ears like a fire alarm, and he yanked the knife away from her face, bringing the back of his free hand up and smacking her roughly. “Shut up!” He absolutely hated when they screamed. Sometimes it made him want to carve out their vocal cords.
Holly’s scream became raspy until she coughed a few times and closed her mouth. She bit down on her bottom lip, causing the skin there to turn a bright red.
“That’s better,” he sighed. Lifting his free hand again, he smiled at how she flinched away from him, but this time all he did was reach up and push her golden hair out of her face. She was just so perfect. He got chills just thinking about what happened next. “So, are you ready to have some fun?”
Despite what her mind was telling her to say, she nodded her head. Behind her back, her fingers were fumbling with the tight rope that was wrapped around her thin wrists, trying and failing to loosen it. The rope was so tight that the only thing she was accomplishing was rubbing the skin on her wrists raw whenever she moved her hands.
“Good.” He raised the knife up again, leaning toward her face with a determined glint in his dark eyes. A smile crossed onto his face as he pressed the tip of the knife into the skin of her forehead. His blood boiled and he grit his teeth as she let out a cry of pain, yet even her scream couldn’t take away his excitement as her crimson blood pooled from her wound. “You’re number six.”

Three generations of women,
Three second loves,
All with a dose of chaos mixed in.
Sometimes in life, changes can be good…
After losing her husband, her five cats, and her home, Charlotte Noel hates feeling dependent. As Charlotte tries to find her identity in this new stage of life, she comes to realize that drama never ends, dance aerobics can be a war zone, and love is always a possibility.
You never know when a midlife crisis is going to strike…
Charlotte’s daughter, Annie, is going through struggles of her own. Recently divorced, she is feeling frumpy and worn-out. Run ragged, Annie mourns her youth and wonders where her life is headed, all while hoping she can help her daughter Amelia get it together.
Settling down can be overrated, especially when you’re falling for a rock star look-alike…
Amelia is the wild child of the family. Working three jobs, because she just hasn’t figured out what she wants in life, she realizes happiness isn’t always settling down with a steady, dependable man; sometimes it’s about following your true passion and living on the edge.
No matter what age you are, life and love can be crazy…
“I’ve been referring to Then Comes Love as the book I’ve always wanted to write. This book allowed me to explore the bond between women in the same family, which is something I can relate to. My mom has always been my best friend, and, before her death, my grandmother was also an important figure in my life. Although this book is fiction, the connection between Charlotte, Amelia, and Annie helped me reflect on my own relationship with the generations of women in my family. As I wrote in the dedication, I know my grandma could’ve been best friends with Charlotte. This book is a way for me to commemorate my bingo-loving, cat-loving grandma and the bond my mom and I have with her.”—Lindsay
About the Author: An English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe. She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, Marjorie, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.
Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful.
Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she’s done her job. Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

Emily walked down the beach, away from Eddie, away from the disgusting things he said, away from the image of her sauce, red and ruined on the ground. She still shook with fury. Throwing the ring at him had not been enough. She wished she could’ve ground the ring into the ground and sprinkled him with the dust, like ashes. Heart pounding and chest heaving, she stared out at the water. She turned when she heard footsteps approaching. She turned and faced the water again when she saw it was Noah. “Emily?” His voice was soft. “He’s gone.”
She turned then. “How could he do this, Noah?”
“I don’t know.”
She said, “I’m entering that contest in New Orleans, and I’m getting the hell on with my life. I will figure out a way to open my own catering company. This is my time.”
“It’s about damn time,” he said finally.
She reached up, put her hands on each side of his face, and planted a kiss firmly on his lips. She grinned as his eyes widened in shock. “Let’s go get a drink. I think I want to celebrate.”
“Hold on just one second,” he said.
He smiled at her, then took his fingers and rubbed something off her face. Emily looked to see the remnants of the spaghetti sauce on his fingers. “Oh my God! I had sauce all over my face? I probably looked like a raging lunatic!”
Noah stopped and kissed her on the lips. “You looked beautiful, Emily. Absolutely beautiful.”
