One city of two million people and only three months to find her.
What are his chances?

When Isabel Antunes is hit by a man on a bike, she doesn’t expect to see him again. But on Monday at work, she learns her boss just hired him. Despite the guy’s repeated assurances to the contrary, she feels he’s a threat to her position of director, and she won’t hand it over without a fight. As if that’s not enough, he’s a member of the same church she joined a few months ago and she can’t get away from him on the weekends either.

Simon Ackerley is in Lisbon, Portugal, as a consultant for an English-only private academy. He doesn’t speak any Portuguese but he’s enjoying the city and his new job, despite a co-worker who’s bent on treating him as the enemy.

But when he discovers a clue to her identity, Simon realizes there is so much more at stake than just a pleasant working environment. If only he could tell her the reason why he’s come, he’s sure Isabel would treat him differently. But he knows she’s not ready for the truth.

"Simon nodded. “So this is a one-time thing?”
She nibbled at her thumb. “Yes, it should be.” 
“All right.” So Isabel was using the academy’s kitchen, and she didn’t look too happy that he’d found her.
She paused and looked at him. “Look, I’d just rather people don’t know that I cook. Don’t you ever do anything to de-stress?”
Simon smiled. “Yeah, I go bike riding.”
“Do you make a habit of crashing into pedestrians as well?”  
“That was the first time.”
“Just my luck,” she deadpanned.
No, it had been his luck but she wouldn’t understand, and he kept it to himself."

Cover Reveal: Heart Strings by Donna Hatch

We are so excited to have Author Donna Hatch with us once again to feature her newest book! For those who haven't yet met Donna, let's get to know her:

Donna Hatch is the author of the best-selling “Rogue Hearts Series,” and a winner of writing awards such as The Golden Quill and the International Digital Award. A hopeless romantic and adventurer at heart, she discovered her writing passion at the tender age of 8 and has been listening to those voices ever since. She has become a sought-after workshop presenter, and also juggles freelance editing, multiple volunteer positions, and most of all, her six children (seven, counting her husband). A native of Arizona who recently transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, she and her husband of over twenty years are living proof that there really is a happily ever after.Determined to help her father with his political career, Jocelyn sets aside dreams of love until she meets a mysterious gentleman with dangerous secrets. Working undercover, Grant’s only suspect for a murder conspiracy is the father of a lady who is getting increasingly hard to ignore. They must work together to find the assassins. England’s future hangs in the balance…and so does their love.

And now, let's check out her fantastic new book!

Synopsis: Gently bred young ladies don’t run away from home to find employment, but when forced to choose between marrying a brutish oaf or becoming another man’s mistress, Susanna makes an unconventional decision. Following her passion for music, she flees to London with dreams of securing a position as a harpist. Becoming entangled with a handsome violinist who calls himself Kit, but who seems too aristocratic for a working-class musician, may be more problematic than sleeping in the streets.
Kit's attention is captured by Susanna’s breath-taking talent, admirable grace, and winsome smiles…until a lawman exposes the new harpist as a runaway bride and a thief. With peril lurking in the shadows, Susanna’s imminent danger not only forces Kit to choose between his better judgment and his heart, but he must also embrace the life to which he swore he would never return.


And now ... are you ready to see the wonderful new cover??

Detours in Our Destinations

Nominated for Best Anthology of 2016 in the Summer Indie Awards! Reaching #23 on Amazon’s Best-seller List for Literature & Fiction Mashups during preorders! This beautiful anthology is the brain child of Author Jennifer L. Roche CEO of Rainbows of Happiness LLC who wished to create an anthology that would serve as a living legacy not only for the three babies she had lost, but for all those mothers who had lost a child regardless of the age.
Jennifer asked Author Terrie Meerschaert owner of Indie Editing Services to join on as her partner in this venture after learning of Terrie’s loss of her own son.  Together they began to form the anthology group of authors known simply as the #DetoursCrew today.
Hope & healing are integral emotions required to allow an individual to overcome extreme circumstances allowing the human body to reset itself back on its path in life. We may have a life plan laid out ahead of time in our minds, but sometimes unexpected changes occur causing our paths to take a Detour In Our Destinations.
   When we follow these new routes down life’s road, the experiences we encounter turn out to be rewarding, and meaningful.  Slowly our bodies adjust to change, allowing us to heal from our emotional turmoil and find a sense of hope.

 Detours In Our Destinations Anthology is a collection of inspirational short stories & original poetry created by 13 Indie Authors know as the #DetoursCrew who seek to inspire hope & healing in families affected by #childloss through stories touching on real-life issues.  Each short story in the #DetoursInOurDestinationsAnthony shows the #strength and #perseverance of individuals when confronted with emotionally poignant issues such as child loss, loss of a parent or spouse, infertility, dealing with rare health issues, or dealing with issues of inferiority & lack of self- confidence.  Proceeds  from the sale of this anthology will be donated to the non-profit organization 3Hopeful Hearts

Authors participating in this anthology are dedicated to helping make a positive impact in the lives of others. The short stories & poetry in Detours In Our Destinations are all written to be inspirational, emotionally poignant pieces of literature.  This anthology will have you feeling the emotional struggles each character overcomes, while simultaneously reaching for your tissues to dry your tears.  The purpose behind creating Detours In  Our Destinations is to display stories about people that positively impact the lives of others despite dealing with personal setbacks. Many of the authors choose to use stories taken from their own personal lives helping readers realize  dreams are possible to achieve despite the obstacles you encounter in life.  One should never give up hope. Continue to defy odds by staying true to themselves & believing they can accomplish their dreams!

The Detours Crew Members
 I believe sharing heartfelt stories such as these is what helps set Detours In Our Destinations apart from most anthologies.  It allows the readers to see the vulnerability of authors and view them as “real” people.  In this sense Detours In Our Destinations is an anthology that creates optimism, inciting a spark of hope in the hearts ofthose who need something to help them in their journey of life!  This is a feel-good anthology rich with emotion. Are you ready to join us in an amazing journey? We’re waiting for you!
