One nation, without God...

          Colton Pierce apprehends Abberants—those who display symptoms of faith—and quarantines them on a remote island to ensure public safety.  Years prior, the government released a genetically-engineered super flu that destroyed the genes believed to be the biological source of spiritual experience in an effort to rid the world of terrorism. As an extractor with the Center for Theological Control, Colton is dedicated to the cause.
          But Colton's steadfast commitment is challenged when he learns his own son has been targeted for extraction. An underground militia, the Remnant, agrees to help Colton save his son in exchange for his assistance with their plan to free the Aberrants on the island.
          Colton is faced with the most important decision of his life. Remain faithful to the CTC? Or give up everything to save his son?

                                                                    Excerpt
1.1.11

The target was somewhere on Pine Street, a popular and well-traveled road in Downtown Long Beach known mainly for its restaurants and nightlife. Right now, at a little after eleven, it would be less crowded than usual, but there would still be the early lunch crowd. His arm computer and communication with the Command Center confirmed that the target was hiding out in one of the buildings. Local law enforcement had already begun to evacuate the block and establish a perimeter.
As Colton pulled up to the crowd and brought his Interceptor to a stop, he looked down at his arm computer: 11:12. Good, he thought. Only four minutes since leaving headquarters. If he could get this extraction under fifteen minutes, or maybe ten minutes, that would be impressive; it would be something he could rub Ashton’s nose in, and it certainly wouldn’t hurt his campaign to become the new Chief Officer. He turned off the ignition and climbed out just as Petra pulled up behind him in her medical vehicle.
The crowd of bystanders stood behind the perimeter of yellow tape. Before Colton had time to get his bearings, he was approached by Officer Burrows, who pointed to one of the tall buildings about halfway down Pine Street.
“He’s hiding out in that building,” Burrows said. A police copter was circling it, and not far off, a couple media helicopters were hovering near the perimeter of the scene. “We have most of this block evacuated and have set up a perimeter. Let me know if there’s anything else we can do.”
“Sure thing,” Colton said.
He walked toward the perimeter of yellow tape and the crowd parted as Colton, Marek, and Petra made their way through it. A few in the crowd began to clap, and when a few more began to cheer and whoop, it turned into an outright celebration. A young woman cried out, “I love you!” Two young brothers, one on dad’s shoulder and one on mom’s, pointed at them, and one—it was hard to tell which in all the commotion—cried out, “Look! Extractors! Better than firemen!” Colton felt so many people slap him on the back as he ducked beneath the yellow tape, he thought this was what a heavyweight boxer must feel like walking toward the ring before a title match. None of this was new to Colton, though. The presence of an extraction brought out the crowds, and because the CTC never wrote tickets or arrested the general public, the extractors had become an esteemed branch of public safety.
Once in the restricted area and away from the yellow tape, Colton withdrew his Shark 41-F tranquilizer. He heard Marek’s tranquilizer gun slip out of its holster as well. Petra walked a fair distance behind. A few officers who were still in the restricted area ushered stragglers away from the Pine Center building. The police had done a good job evacuating the area, as was protocol; local law enforcement was prohibited from engaging a target except in extreme, violent cases in which public safety was in immediate danger. In most cases, such as this, local law enforcement played a secondary role only: evacuating an area, providing aerial surveillance, and assisting with the general public. Their job was to clear the path for the extractor, and Colton was thankful for that. With the people out of the way, this extraction—like all extractions—would go smoothly.

Hart Of Rock And Roll, Book 2
Published: September 2016

Dalton Shaw was on the verge of success when he made a mistake that could have ruined his life forever. He was one of the lucky ones. A prison sentence wasn't the end. His friends stood by him. Waited. Together, they rode to the top of the charts becoming one of the most successful rock bands in the world.

Dalton thought he had left his bad boy past behind him. Unfortunately, small towns--and the people in them--have long memories. Especially when there are secrets nobody wants dug up.

Returning to Midas, Arizona was the last thing Dalton wanted. Given no choice, he is determined to find the truth once and for all. What he didn't expect to find was a woman like Colleen McNamara.
Prison changes a man. It's inevitable. Can she live with that?

Colleen had one goal. Getting out of Midas as soon as humanly possible. Meeting Dalton Shaw didn't change her dreams. He was a distraction. A bit of fun. She wasn't looking to fall for the blue eyed charmer. But fate--and love--have a way of sneaking up on an unsuspecting heart. It wasn't long before Colleen was willing to put herself at risk if it means protecting Dalton from those who want to use him for their own ends--or ruin him trying.

Danger follows Dalton and Colleen as they search for the truth.

Will they make it out of Midas in one piece?

Will they discover in time that love is the most powerful weapon of all?


Hart Of Rock And Roll, Book 3
Published: October 2016

Ashe Mathison has always been the even keeled member of The Ryder Hart Band.

Unlike his friends, he had a stable childhood. Pampered and loved, he grew up wanting for nothing—except the chance to follow his true passion. Music. In order to follow his dream, Ash had to walk away from his family with nothing but a few dollars in his pocket, a guitar slung over his back, and a driving ambition to be the best.

Ten years later, Ashe has it all. Fame. Wealth. And a tight group of people he can count on to have his back—no matter what.

Mending the break with his family had always seemed like an impossible task. But when an opportunity arises, Ashe knows it might be the only chance he will ever get. It's a risk he has to take.
Belle Richards seems to have the perfect life. With a well-paying job and a handsome fiancé her family loves, what else could she ask for? How about love? Or passion. Both are missing from Belle's life. Only one man ever stirred her heart. Unfortunately, he never knew she was alive.

THE BOY NEXT DOOR IS NOW A ROCK STAR

A chance encounter between Belle and Ashe stirs up unexpected feelings they can't control. For Belle, it was meant to be a one night stand. For Ashe, it felt like more. In the morning, when he reached for her, she was gone. Imagine his surprise when he returns home and finds out the woman he can't get out of his mind is engaged to be married.

For Ashe and Belle, passion, once tasted, is impossible to ignore. But is that all there is? Can they have a future when their lives are so different?

An unexpected threat to Belle's life changes everything. Ashe has found the love of his life—and will not let anybody keep them apart.


Hart Of Rock And Roll, Book 4
Published: December 2016

Zoe Hart knows who she is. Sister, friend. And badass lead guitar player for The Ryder Hart Band. A childhood filled with all-to-real monsters and the uncertainty of foster homes left her no choice but to grow up fast. To survive she built a wall that over time had gotten taller—thicker. She didn't let in anybody but her closest friends. And even they didn't know all her secrets. She doesn't need a man in her life to make it better. She doesn't need a man. Period. Especially a cocky, charming rock God who is used to women falling at his feet.

Smith Carson had known Zoe Hart since she was teenager. Pretty. Amusingly snarky. She was more of a girl than a woman. While he admired her as a musician, he always thought of her as Ryder Hart's little sister. In other words, hands off. When that changed, he wasn't certain. All he knew was that one day—in what seemed like a blink of the eye—she was all grown up. Breathtakingly gorgeous. Along with an outer maturity, her snarky tongue had turned from amusing to acid sharp. If Smith wanted Zoe—and he did—it was going to take more than some charm and a smile to win her.

Resisting Smith had been easy when Zoe thought he was a shallow, narcissistic pretty boy. The attraction was there, but that was all. Smith didn't try to hide his intentions. He wanted Zoe. To her surprise—as she got to know him—she found herself wanting him back. Before she knew what was happening, he snuck underneath her well-constructed walls. Smith was on a path to her heart—something Zoe hadn't thought possible.

It was tempting. Smith was tempting. But secrets—no matter how well buried—have a way of digging their way to the surface. Demons—both emotional and real—have haunted Zoe most her life. It's time to face them once and for all.

Can Zoe find a way to open her heart to what Smith is offering? Or will the past destroy what she wants the most? Love.

Top Ten Tuesday

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Ten Books I Loved Less/More Than I Thought I Would (recently or all time) -- or you could do something like books I liked more/less than everyone else.



I am going to do five books that I liked less than everyone else or did not like it.
Fives books that I liked more that I thought I would/ I loved!



5 books that I likes less than everyone else or that I did not like it.  



Divergent is one that everyone else LOVED it. But I thought it was overrated, I actually stopped reading it. 
When a book gets so much hype I expect it to be super duper epic and then never meets my expectation. That is why, now I read a book a lot later than everyone else, so the hype is over  and that way I hope I would end up liking it.


Red Rising ...  I just could not get into it after reading a few pages so I decided to drop it.
I am planing to pick it up again .



The Grisha Series ... I did liked them, but not as much as everyone else did. I was not crazy about it.
Book one,  Shadow and Bone,  was my favorite, I LOVED this one, and I loved The Darkling and he was in this book all the time. The rest of the books were OK, especially since The Darkling wasn't on them as much. But at least I had Nikolai :)




Elementals... I hated it




World after was a huge, tremendous disappoint!




                        5 Books I liked more than I expected it



                                           The Other Side of the Dark...I LOVED this book!


  The Other Side of the Dark...I LOVED this book!


                                   
The Silver Kiss... I super duper loved this book!





Water Rites was really good!


Lucifer was so much fun to read! This is perfect for those Shadowhunters fans!



   Mist on Water... this was the kind of book that I wasn't sure about       it but I still liked it.

                                                                  Bonus books :)




I super Loved Wolfskin! Everyone should read              it, great  fantasy!





        Have You Seen This Girl? was so good! 
   It  surprised  me actually because this books is not the genre 
       I always read.
