Playing the Game

Since being drafted by the NHL to play for his home team at age nineteen, Derek Backhard has had everything he’s ever dreamed of – unrivaled MVP mentions, countless goals and assists, even being compared to the great one. Holding the power to control his future in the palm of his hands, nothing stood in his way.

Until the unthinkable happened, and everything about his life shifted. Past priorities fell away the moment he held baby Ryder in his arms mere moments after losing his close friend, and Ryder’s father, Brad.

After weeks of watching Liz fall apart over the loss of her husband as she struggled to adjust to life as a single parent, Derek vows to give her and Ryder everything they deserve, creating a life he never knew he always wanted.

Rocked to her core by her changing feelings for him, Liz doesn’t know what to do with Derek or his offer. Uncertainty swirls within her as she leans on her lifelong friend during the hard times, but how much of his attention is real, and how much is pity?

Is she strong enough to let him in and let him take care of her, or will she force him away and back into the life she thinks he really wants?

Excerpt

 

After HIS long slumber, Saturn, the Great Father, awoke and opened HIS all-seeing Eye. Staring out into the black cosmic abyss, the god spoke in a thunderous voice.

“Sapirla ne’kab vitoar zop’kab shael!” (Blood is the seat of the soul!) Saturn’s words had awakened the void and breathed life into the universe, thus marking the beginning of time.

Saturn then waved HIS golden scythe, sending powerful lightning bolts streaking across the vast universe. Dust particles swooshed and swirled while elements joined together, until they formed an infinite number of luminous stars, nebulae, and planets. Saturn made HIS planet sixth—HIS sacred number, HIS seal.

Everything in the cosmos bore Saturn’s seal. In some galaxies HIS seal was symbolized by a six-pointed star. In other realms the sacred number was depicted as a hexagram or a black cube. It was a number—six hundred and sixty-six. This sacred number was the very fabric upon which the universe was built. It was a powerful, magickal mathematical equation and the perfect construct for an invisible, inescapable matrix—that placed all beings great and small, rich and poor, free and slave under HIS control.

To oversee the countless worlds in the universe, Saturn created a legion of gods in HIS image. They resided within the rings around HIS planet, forming the Council of Gods. Saturn selected forty-two principal gods to act as overlords, among them was Apollyon, whom the Great Father affectionately called, Pluto.

Saturn extended HIS hand and a glorious band of light flooded the cosmos. Out of the wondrous light, a winged figure emerged. The majestic white wings of this magnificent being opened up like a blossoming flower—it was a woman. Her skin was a translucent, icy, blue. She wore a loosely draped, sheer white sheath that barely covered her flawless, round breasts. A halo adorned her head as her long white hair cascaded over her shoulders. Upon her neck she wore a gold six-pointed star.

“You are my daughter, and I shall name you, Isis.”

“Salzol ShBThAI! Salzol ShBThAI! Salzol ShBThAI!” (Hail Saturn! Hail Saturn! Hail Saturn!) Isis said in Solsatihel, the language of her Father, Saturn—the first language of the gods and of the universe.

Saturn stretched forth HIS hand and this time two winged, translucent, icy, blue figures emerged—Asira and Dusana. Asira, a raven-haired beauty and the taller of Isis’ two sisters, held on tightly to Dusana’s hand. The ethereal specters bowed before the Great Father and embraced their sister.

“Daughters, I empower you with the gift of immortality, the power to heal, create, destroy, and the ability to travel through time and space. As my daughters, you are my messengers—my angels.”

Saturn’s scythe began emitting beams of electrical energy. The rays of energy bathed the sisters in a blue light.

“Go forth and transcribe my laws, sacred ceremonies, prayers, and spells into sixty Sacred Scrolls. So that every being in the cosmos may know that I am their god and how to exalt me, and keep my laws. You three shall become the guardians of the scrolls.”

Saturn held out HIS hand to Isis. Sa’hal!” (Come!)

Isis placed her hand in her father’s and then vanished, arriving on Rhea, the planet Saturn’s second largest moon.

“Isis, being my eldest daughter, I bestowed upon you all wisdom so that you may intercede on my behalf. I am entrusting you with all of my magickal knowledge,” the Great Father decreed.

Isis listened carefully to her father’s words, meticulously recording HIS every magickal secret. She fashioned them into the Six Forbidden Scrolls. Raising her arms upward, Isis summoned the magick of the universe. Sorcery bound the scrolls and funneled them inside six solid gold cylinders. Sparks flew as an invisible hand engraved the cylinders with Saturn’s insignia—a scythe inside a six pointed star resting on a flat, black, onyx stone.

Isis knew the Forbidden Scrolls had to be protected. Anyone armed with the scrolls’ magick could open Saturn’s all-seeing Eye and create or destroy an entire universe, transform beings, unleash the Judgment Seat to punish anyone who opposed them—or far worse! They would have the power to send Saturn into an eternal sleep and, ultimately, control the universe.

Isis hid the scrolls in the last place anyone would go looking for them—deep inside Pan, the oddly-shaped, innermost of the planet Saturn’s moons.

Although Saturn had created an infinite number of planets, there was one planet, in particular, the Great Father favored more than the others—Earth. It was HIS grandest creation. Saturn generously filled the planet with animals of every kind, beast, and fowl. HE gave the lands life-sustaining water and lush vegetation, but something was still missing—a caretaker.

Crafted in the image of HIS daughters—beautiful and beguiling—Saturn created woman and made her Earth’s mother. HE gave woman HIS sacred number—six, and vested her with a special gift, the power of creation. In time, woman gave birth to man, and like woman, man’s number was also six. Their off-spring was also given Saturn’s sacred number.

Thus, the human covenant with Saturn, like all beings of the universe, was six hundred and sixty-six. The number of man’s Third Eye, his spirituality—his direct connection to the creator. Now man was a part of Saturn’s matrix.

Isis, Asira, and Dusana obeyed their father’s commandment and taught man the importance of keeping Saturday, Saturn’s Sabbath Day, Holy and Saturn’s sacred rituals, which often required human sacrifices and the drinking of blood.

“Sapirla ne’kab vitoar zop’kab shael!” (Blood is the seat of the soul!)

Saturn was so pleased with Earth and man, HE spent the first millennium residing on the planet as a man-god, making HIS home at the summit of the world axis—the North Pole. The time Saturn spent on Earth was known as the Golden Age. During this period, there were no wars, famine or disease. Mankind lived peacefully in lush fertile lands of flowing milk and honey.

About the Author: Lisa Marie Schinski

Picture

I was born and raised in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.  I currently reside in King of Prussia.  I wrote the story about the Sore Prickly Bear when I was 8 years old.  My teacher, Mrs. Ulrich encouraged me to write and also gave me the young author’s award.  I found this book after my mom passed away last year.   I had a great childhood but when I wrote this book, my parents got divorced, we moved and I changed schools.  A lot of changes for an 8 year old.  So I guess I felt like Fuzzy.   

Around October 2015, I took the book into work to show my friends because this past year and a half has been very hard for me and my family.  I knew when I showed my friends, they would laugh and cry because my life was again Fuzzy’s.  My friends, Denice, Dee, Candace, Rick, Gina, Tara, Nancy, Tamara and Gina encouraged me to publish this book.  So here I am! 

I am now 46 years old.  I have a great job, great friends, and great family.  But there are still days that feel very bad and very unfair.  

My goal for publishing this book is to help children understand that bad things happen and bad days happen. But when we have friends and family in our life to help us laugh at ourselves, we can heal and move forward. Everyone has a bad day, week, month or even years.  My dream is to share this story for children to know they are not alone and everyone has a bad day.  
I am so grateful for my family and friends.

“That’th what I thaid” was published in February 2016.  Lauren Panco inspired me to write this story.  It is for children who have a hard time with their R’s and S’s.  I think many of us have!   I want children to know it’s ok to sound different and with practice, it changes.  Don’t let anyone make fun of you.  We are all perfect the way we are!


Out of the Ashes by Kelly Hashway

 

 

Release Date: March 22, 2016
Genre: YA paranormal
Tagline: Can history repeat itself if you can’t remember your past?
Seventeen-year-old Cara Tillman’s worst nightmare has come true…
She’s been reborn as a Phoenix and has forgotten everything from her first life—including Logan Schmidt. He’s handsome and protective, but with no recollection, he can’t be trusted.
Accused of being a Hunter, Logan’s mortality is put to the test…
Logan isn’t willing to admit he and Cara are over—not even after he watches her rise from her own ashes.
While the other Phoenixes are convinced Logan is a sworn enemy, a group of deadly Hunters are sure he is a Phoenix. Only being guilty of loving Cara, he must prove them all wrong—and convince Cara she loves him.
However, a magical link may be the demise of Logan’s devotion…
With the Hunters hot on their heels, it’s up to Logan to save Cara. But when the dagger calls out, Logan is drawn to its power.
Cara’s missing memories may not be the only obstacle standing between her and Logan. Their relationship isn’t just complicated—it’s deadly. And when Cara finds herself at a crossroad, she is forced to choose…
 
She can plunge into the darkness of her treacherous fate, or use her Phoenix instincts to once again rise Out of The Ashes.

EXCERPT

Within minutes, everyone is yelling. It feels like it’s all my fault. If only I could remember what happened at the school. Before I woke up in Logan’s arms, all that’s there is a vague memory of Mom, Jeremy, and the other Phoenixes. No actual memories. Only names and faces.
“We all need to calm down,” Linette says, taking a seat on the couch. “Yelling isn’t going to solve anything. We can’t even hear each other.”
“She’s right.” Mom pats my head like I’m a toddler. I guess I am in this life, but I’m still physically seventeen.
I step away, not wanting to touch anyone right now. I know she’s my mom, but she’s just as much a stranger to me as this Logan guy is. He said he loves me. Is that true? Or is he another Hunter, preying on me because I’m a newborn Phoenix? So many questions. That’s all I have, and it’s making my head hurt.
Logan scans the room. “Is anybody going to let me tell you what happened?”
Garret is standing at his side, apparently not willing to let Logan get more than two feet away from him. “I’m sure that would be very entertaining,” Garret says.
“Let him talk.” The words come tumbling out of my mouth. Everyone turns to me, and one corner of Logan’s mouth curves up. I look away, not sure how to act around him. Hell, I don’t know how to act at all. Thank God we only forget everything after our first rebirth because I couldn’t take going through this three more times before I die. If a Hunter doesn’t kill me before I live all five of my lives, that is.
Mom reaches for me, but I take a deep breath and shake my head. “I’m fine. I want to hear what Logan has to say. He was there with me. He didn’t hurt me when I woke up in his arms, so I think I owe it to him to hear him out.”
“You don’t owe anything to a Hunter, Cara,” Garret spits out.
Mom shoots him a look. “Garret, that isn’t helping.”
Logan starts toward me, and Garret grabs him.
“What do you think I’m going to do?” Logan asks, sounding equally frustrated and heartbroken. “I’m handcuffed, my palms are burned to crisps, and the last time I checked, I’m the only human in a room full of Phoenixes.”
Part of me wants to laugh because it sounds crazy, but so does burning to ashes and rising up out of them. Yet, here I am.

A Matchmaking service run by Thor and Loki? This should be fun, but when the gods are involved, nothing is ever easy.

review

Unusual Seduction is a book of six short paranormal romance  stories. I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. It’s was a nice change reading short stories even though I love novels. These contain strong hero’s and heroines that would make any reader happy.
I think the second story was my favorite! A man protecting a woman that he’s fallen for and she is definitely off limits. She in turn has fallen for him and sees his feelings for her but cannot understand why he refuses to act upon them.
This was a fun book and would recommend for some light reading! Four heats for this one!

SUMMER DREAMING by Liz Matis 

I’m looking for a hero. Not. 
You’d think as a new college grad I’d be looking for the perfect job and the perfect man. Well, I’m not. Summer is here and instead of plotting my future, I’m playing in the Hamptons with my two best friends. Sun and sex is all I’m looking for. Then I meet Sean Dempsey, my fantasy lifeguard in the flesh. But he is more than just a hot bod with a whistle. And after he makes a daring save, I’m thinking a hero is exactly what I’ve been looking for all along. 

To the rescue… 
By day I guard the beaches in the Hamptons, by night I’ve had my fair share of summer flings. Then I meet Kelsey Mitchell, a girl with eyes like the setting sun and I burn for more. Something I have no right to ask of her…forever. 

SUMMER TEMPTATION by Wendy S. Marcus 

Meet Leigh DeGray… 

After graduating college with honors and landing the job of my dreams in New York City, I’m off to The Hamptons to spend the summer with my two best friends. My life seems perfect, right? It’s not. The truth is, I have a secret that may make the future I’d planned so carefully completely fall apart. A hot summer romance is the absolute last thing I’m looking for… Until I meet a man who tempts me like no other and shows me a hot summer romance is exactly what I need. 

Meet Nick Kenzy… 

After two years of working my ass off as a Wall Street analyst, I’m out of a job, with no warning, no thank you, and no severance. Am I angry? You’re damn right I am. So when I head to the Hamptons for the weekend to spend time with my granddad, I plan to regroup and relax before I return to the city to hit the job search hard. I don’t need any distractions. Then I meet Leigh. Suddenly, a summer temptation makes me question everything I want for my future… 

SUMMER SINS by Jennifer Probst 

Summer fun before my wedding… 
I have one goal this summer. Hang with my besties for some much needed sun, sand, and relaxation while I put the final touches on my idyllic wedding. I didn’t count on meeting a smart-mouthed, bad boy biker whose gaze burns hotter than a beach bonfire. I never planned to lose myself, body and soul, and question my entire future. Now, I have to make a choice that’s tearing me apart, and could shatter the lives of the two men I love… 

Turns into summer sins… 
I have one goal this summer. CHILL. Do nothing. Nada. I need simple before I have to head into Manhattan to take on a high powered position on Wall Street. I didn’t count on a dark haired, inky- eyed spitfire who’d spin my world upside down, or make me burn for things I never thought I wanted. I vowed to make her my summer fling, but had no idea she was claimed by another. And now that she possessed not only my body but my soul, the stakes are too high for me to lose her…
