Author Brenda Jackson shares Seized by Seduction

One glance is all it takes

From the moment his eyes meet hers across the crime-scene tape, ex-con turned bodyguard Quasar Patterson knows he has to see the mysterious Dr. Randi Fuller again. She’s a renowned psychic investigator who can foresee danger for others, but not for herself. That makes Quasar doubly determined to watch over her—the closer, the better—as she’s drawn into a dangerous gang rivalry.

Both her psychic gift and their blinding chemistry tell Randi that she and Quasar are fated to be entwined. Even as they surrender to the heat between them, there’s no guarantee of a happily-ever-after now that an enemy has her in his sights. And claiming a future will take more than Quasar’s strength and skill. If he can’t risk the heart he’s always held in check, they’ll both lose for good…

About the Author

We’re Grace and Thomas Lockhaven. We pretty much met the same way ALL writers meet each other, we met at the gym. While other people discussed their workouts we discussed things like, how to reverse a “creeping death” spell cast by an evil wizard. We could have filled a book with pictures of people’s faces that overheard our conversations. Quest Chasers grew from these conversations and now we hope to pass on to you the thrilling adventures of Eevie and Tommy as we bring them to life.

“Let’s imitate some Fifty Shades of Grey over some Jodeci grooves”

You build. You love. You grow together. Rosalyn felt that with Denim; she would have happiness that would always last. But when the romance died down, so did his loyalty. After discovering Denim’s infidelity, Rosalyn decides to end their relationship and start anew, or so she thought.

Temporary pleasures don’t work for him and when he discovers Rosalyn may be moving on, he must decide to finally step up and be the man she wants, or walk away.

In the follow up to The Words I Didn’t Say, Denim gets a second chance at love, but like most, he doesn’t know what to do with it. Sex, lies, deceit, and betrayal will have you wondering whether these two will finally let go of their pride and speak their heart? Or will love be lost once again?

 Excerpt

 Spenser looked to the left and right, clutching the straps of his backpack tighter. He had read about cowboys but never seen one in real life. There weren’t many in western Washington. His mother, who was from Texas, spoke of them occasionally, but even she said there weren’t as many as there used to be.

“Why you looking so glum little pardner?” the man drawled. His accent was heavy, and his words were slow.

 Spenser wasn’t supposed to talk to strangers, but his curiosity got the best of him. “I have to read a book and do a report on it by Friday, and I don’t like reading.”

“Well, that is a mighty big problem,” the man agreed, tipping his hat. “Maybe you just ain’t found the right book yet.”

“What do you mean?” Spenser asked, narrowing his eyes at the man.

“Books can be full of amazing stories. Once you find one you like, I’ll bet you’ll be hooked for life pardner. Here, I got something that might help.” He reached into the pocket of his black duster and pulled something out. It was small enough to fit in his hand.

Unable to help himself, Spenser took another step closer. His blue eyes widened as he waited for the man to open his hand.

The man’s fingers uncurled one at a time to showcase . . ..

“A rock?” Spenser’s nose wrinkled in disgust. He had been hoping for something cooler than a rock.

“Not just any rock, son. This is a wishing stone. You jest hold it while you read and see what happens, but I must warn you to be careful of your thoughts. For sometimes, when you hold this stone, magical things happen.”

 Spenser looked again at the stone. Though nearly completely white, it still looked just like an ordinary rock to him. He took the rock, expecting nothing, but a cool sensation tickled up his arms. He glanced up quickly at the man, who merely smiled and nodded, as if they now shared a secret.

Lorana Hoopes is an English teacher in the Pacific Northwest where she lives with her husband and three children. When not writing, she enjoys kickboxing, singing, and acting. The Wishing Stone series was born when her oldest son began reading The Magic Tree House books. While she loved that he was reading, she wished the book didn’t use all simple sentences. She decided to write a series just a step up from Magic Tree House and The Wishing Stone was born. Dangerous Dinosaur is the first book in what she hopes will be a long series.
