Excerpt:

Samael didn’t know how Hope would feel about the fact he had already met her parents. Actually, Dan and he had spent many hours together. Samael did it to keep Dan ignorant about what was truly going on around him. It was an added benefit that he got to hear all about Hope in the process.

Samael leaned on the doorframe and accidentally hit the doorbell. “Crap,” he whispered to himself. He had never been clumsy in his life, but she had knocked him totally off-kilter.

Hope slung the door open and took his breath away. She was yanking at her clothes with one hand and fussing with a strand of her hair with the other. Samael was rendered useless. The new feelings he was experiencing surged. He had to pull himself together, so he didn’t scare her off.

He pressed his hands above his head to grip both sides of the doorframe. It was his way of trying to look casual, like she wasn’t his exception.

But she was.

Samael gave her his uneven dazzling smile to hide his emotions.

“Hey, Angel. Do I get to come in, or are you going to keep running from me?” He winked, knowing his nerves couldn’t handle hearing no.

“I’m not running from you anymore.”

“I don’t know. You, little lady, are good at running. Are you going to ask me in?”

“Why don’t you come in?” Hope asked.

“You really should be careful who you invite into your home,” he warned as he stepped into the house.

“Why? Are you going to hurt me?” Hope asked, then sunk her teeth deep into her lip.

“Never, but some people are not as trustworthy.” Samael glared down at Hope. “When sin knocks, don’t answer.” He gripped both of her hands in his. It amazed him how one small touch from her could set his skin on fire.

“I’ll try to remember that,” Hope said.

This book was awesome, great storyline, great characters. I thought he was a vampire, huh, fooled me. They had so many trials, mostly because of who & what he was, but their love overcame all. Lots of tears & tissues, some of it was really sad. Is there another, would love to see them complete their story. Absolutely loved it, wish there was more.

When Alexander Sullivan returned to his hometown of Cedar Falls, Louisiana after a seven-year absence, he had no idea his heart would still react to her. Julia Whitmore was his closest friend when they were children, but things were different, and she was now off-limits to him. Still, it is the forbidden fruit that is often the sweetest and most desired, but a taste will cost them dearly.

After a brief love affair, Alexander’s obligations to his family tear him away from Julia, leaving her broken beyond repair and her reputation in ruins. With time against her, she must resort to scandal and deceit to secure a husband before it’s too late.

 

Is Eric Dalton as ignorant as Julia believes, or is he hiding his own dark secrets and motives?

Excerpt:

Instantly, Julia’s face burned red with embarrassment. Slowly, she lifted her eyes from the ground and met his sapphire blue gaze.

Her breaths quickened, her heart fluttered, and her knees threatened to crumble under the weight of his stare.

All of her self-control came cascading down at the sight of his wide, dimpled smile. Oh, how she missed that smile.

Tears began to sting the inner corners of her eyes. She tried to fight them back but failed. The warm liquid dripped down her cheeks, and onto her lips as Alexander’s steps brought him closer to her.

His heart was in an uproar. It hammered against the wall of his chest with wild anticipation to have his arms around her.

He saw no one else in that moment.

No one else mattered.

Alexander took longer more vigorous steps to close the distance that would finally bring him face to face with Julia.

READ MORE

Upon reaching her, he wrapped his arms around her, pulled her close to his chest and kissed the top of her head before lifting her to the sky.

“You cannot possibly know how much I’ve missed you,” he confessed in a velvet whisper as he brought her back down, and into his arms again. The feel of her so close brought life and blood back into his limbs, which until this moment felt numb and useless. He took a deep breath as his cheek rested against her golden curls and welcomed the jasmine scent that filled him and awakened his soul.  He could not believe the gorgeous woman before him was the same frail creature he left behind. She had filled out in all the right places and had become even more beautiful than he remembered.

“You are absolutely breathtaking,” he said as his forehead touched hers gently.

Julia blushed and cleared her throat in an attempt to silence her rapidly increasing pulse.  He stole her words, her very breath and her heart all in a moment’s time. She wanted to forget the painful past without him, the hole in her heart that he carved with his seven-year silence. But she promised herself she would never forgive him.

"Is everything okay with you two?" I studied her face to see if I could figure it out, but I couldn't.

"We'll see." She looked back at Elijah, who by then was climbing into the front seat. "I'll text you later, okay? You have a nice ride home, and I want details later you hear me?" She walked over to the car and climbed into the passenger seat. Devon startled me when he snuck up behind me.

"So, I take it she didn't need to go home after all?" he said.

"They need to work out some stuff," I said.

"Well... Let's get you out of this cold and get home, shall we?" Devon grabbed my hand and walked me back towards the driveway where his blue 2014 Ford F150 was parked. I didn't know what to think anymore. He held my hand. What does that mean? Why would a guy like this like a girl like me? I felt unsure but decided to go with the flow. On the way to my house, we talked a lot about me. I told him I would be turning eighteen in a couple of weeks and graduating in May.  We talked about my mom and Shane and their wedding. We talked about my dad, which wasn’t an easy subject for me to talk about. I felt so comfortable talking to him, like I’d known him forever. He listened to me and didn't pass judgment. Well, at least I didn't think he did. He stayed quiet most of the time.

"Look at me being a chatterbox. Tell me about yourself," I asked.

"I love listening to you talk." He gave me that sexy smile of his.

"Well, now you know my life story, I'd like to hear yours."

"Some other time, okay?" he said. Hmm, what doesn't he want to tell me? I just told him everything about me. Did I say too much? Did he lose interest? Ugh, why am I letting this get to me? All too soon, we pulled up to my house. My mom's car wasn't in the driveway. Thank goodness. I didn't want her to see me pull up in Devon’s truck; she would probably flip out. Besides, I’m supposed to be next door at Cassie's house, and Cassie isn't even with me. Oh man, Cassie. I hope whatever she and Elijah are fighting about isn't too serious. They are too perfect for each other. I know I want a relationship just like theirs someday.

Ms. Witte is phenomenal in her detail & her suspense. She is without a doubt right up there with the Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys mysteries. These books were my favorites as a youngster, & Ms. Witte is just as great! I could not put it down, eyes got sore. I look forward to her next one. She is fast on her way to a long career if her stories are driven with the same suspense & description as this one was. Great job Ms. Witte, you are phenomenal in your writing & see a bright future in it for you.

Spanning the last fifty years, this family saga focuses on three generations of women, who grapple with sex and marriage, the elusiveness of success and the power of love to get them through tough times. Told chiefly from the alternating points of view of two sisters who come of age in the 1960's, the story takes us from Princess phones and prom dresses to the Vietnam War, women’s lib, the lure of Hollywood, 9/11 in Manhattan—and a family emergency like no other. Throughout the years the sisters often misread their own hearts or are mistreated by those they care about. When real crisis arises, they are challenged to summons their better angels. But can they?

Excerpt:

That’s when Erin leaned over and tilted my head up. I looked into his dark blue eyes, for the first time up close, and I could feel my body quiver. He placed his lips on mine, lightly, making no attempt to pry my lips apart. “Mellie, Mellie,” he whispered, sounding more amused than amorous. (Only guys sure of themselves sound amused after they’ve kissed me. So I assume. He’s the first to do it this way.)

Don’t ask me how I knew what was up with him but I did. Without waiting for me to say anything, he scrambled out of the car, came round to open my door and walked me over to my car.

Once home, I went straight upstairs, not bothering to look in on Callie. Such a zombie my sister’s become, as if she were the one to have flunked the math exam. I slept fitfully, a flutter in the center of my body keeping me awake most of the night.

READ MORE

Back to the public shaming at school, which, unthinkingly, I let myself in for. Should have been Callie to show up for the practice session and to pick up her own robe. As I said, though, she’s practically comatose. Ergo (as she would say if she deigned to speak), there I was out on the patio, hoping to scoot in and out before word of my disgrace got around. But it was not to be. News of my failing grade did seep out, sooner than I had anticipated.

Before I can retreat inside to the bathroom, Sherry takes my hand and gives me an elaborate hug, making a big show of sympathizing. Several of the other girls look on with pained faces painted on. As if they weren’t pleased as punch.

“We’re in shock, Mellie. It’s so not fair. He must have had it in for you, Dr. Faulkner,” Sherry laments, batting her mascara-caked cow eyes at me.

The only one of the lot who stands aloof  is Doreen, puffing on a Camel and looking superior to the petty machinations on the patio where the senior girls congregate. Instead, she regards me coolly. I acknowledge her with a glance but say nothing. She flicks her cigarette butt into the nearby bushes before swiveling her hips back inside.

The mark of an excellent writer is her ability to catch and hold on to the reader, taking them by the proverbial hand and leading them down one story path after another, each more intriguing than the next. Suddenly and oh-so-satisfyingly, you find yourself hooked. In Connections, I found myself in such a delicious predicament.

Timely on Amazon wrote:

There is something in Connections that resonates with and for the 18,19 year old girl, through to the "mature" woman. If one hasn't lived it, one has seen it; there is a familiarity that makes the reader understand, and want to know how these lives work out. There is conflict, a bit of mystery, anxiety for outcome, and fun too.
Satisfying!

"The Mor" is Sci-fi Thriller at its finest. Prepare to read well into the night! I couldn't put it down. -SJ Pierce, bestselling author of the Captivated Series ★★★★★

One universe. Two different races. One common enemy. 

When the benevolent race known as the Illuminous visited earth back in the 1950's, they weren't aware of the aliens who had attached themselves to the hull of their ship. The Mor, also known as 'Seeds', found Earth to be a poor choice for a new home, but a home, nonetheless. When three brilliant college students inadvertently stumbled on a formula that enhanced the Mors' ability to communicate and grow at an incredible rate, the race was on to reverse what had been done before all of life was destroyed.

The Mor is a stand-alone sci-fi Thriller with elements of Romance. Suitable for ages 15 and up.

Excerpt:

David flipped off the shroud and stared down at the mess for a moment. "Sam, I need you to do me a favor," he said.

"Um, sure. Okay."

"I need you to go upstairs."

Sam shuffled his feet. "Well, being this is my lab and all, I'd rather stay if it's all the same to you."

David Wyatt turned around and Sam could see the man had removed the glove from his left hand. It had an eerie little glow to it and appeared to be a whitish, fleshy color.

"No, it isn’t the same to me.”

Reviews:Patty Perrin on Amazon wrote:

I couldn’t put the book down. The story starts strong, setting the tone of this science fiction action thriller, where two alien races have come to earth; one to cooperate while the other festers and waits. Nothing can stop the sequence set in motion by three unsuspecting young scientists. Tension escalates until it seems all hope is lost, culminating in a nail-biting climactic ending. I was enthralled and kept thinking what a great movie it would make. It’s well-worth reading.

Kate Rhoads on Amazon wrote:

Intriguing story line and interesting characterizations. The author show insight into human motives and interactions through descriptive narration and dialogue. Fast but but well paced Worth buying!

Giselle Marks on Amazon wrote:

Fighting a desperate battle against a hidden invader? “The Mor” by Steve Soderquist sets the stage for the invasion of the Earth by a strange race which cares nothing for humanity, but only for their own survival. Humanity engaging to destroy the interlopers has established especially adapted and trained cleaners. They together with seekers have been trying to eradicate the invaders while keeping the world’s population from understanding the threat they were all living with.
Three students devise a strange chemical compound and unknowingly stumble on something that will speed the world’s doom. They race to find a cure for the damage they accidentally created. Fast paced, tightly written, “Seeds” is a horror delight for the aficionado of the genre. If you are looking for an excellently written sci-fi horror tale, then “The Mor” is your obvious choice.

Heidi on Amazon wrote:

A fast paced read that will keep you wondering until the end. Can Joshua and Angel save the planet or will the aliens win. Get yourself a copy and find out!!I'm not sure I will be able to look at kernels of corn the same way again, thanks Steve!
I gave it 4.5 stars instead of 5 because when I really like a book it's never long enough for me.
I look forward to checking out more of Steve's work.

Dawne Dominique on Barnes and Noble wrote:

The Mor is a classic science fiction / horror novel. For me it had undertones of John Carpenter, Alfred Hitchcock and Wes Craven all rolled into one fantastic (sometimes frightening) read. Without giving too much away... The Illuminous came to Earth to begin anew; unfortunately, The Mor (evil plant-like aliens] hitched a ride on their spaceship. While the Illuminous revealed themselves to humankind, the Mor hid and fed off humans (you’ll have to read how they do this...YUCK)!

We follow the main characters, Angel and Joshua (Angela is an Illuminous and Joshua is a Cleaner, a human trained and equipped with one prosthetic hand to help destroy the Mor) who are partners and work together to rid the planet of these horrid plant-like creatures.

In other news (don’t you just hate that) a bunch of college students perfect a serum/fertilizer which creates super-plants. Although with good intentions, some of this serum is exposed to a Mor. Not good. Needless to say it becomes Hell on Earth.

Angela, Joshua and the college students must work together to save planet Earth, but is it too late?

This is definitely a page turner and a “must read” for all you horror/sci-fi enthusiasts.

Excerpt:

Upstairs Glenna paced across the plush carpet at the foot of the enormous bed.  She lifted a hand to her face to brush away the same unruly lock of hair again, but the hand was shaking so hard that she clenched it into a fist and let it drop to her side.  She took in a deep breath and exhaled slowly in an attempt to steady her nerves.  She opened a door next to her, looking for a bathroom, and found instead a large walk-in closet filled with impeccable designer suits and sports clothes and perfectly polished shoes and boots.  She stepped over to the shirt rack and ran her fingers through the dozens of tailored silk shirts.  She noticed the initials “MV” or “V” on several, and there was a wire bin that held dozens of neatly pressed handkerchiefs with the same monograms.

READ MORE

“Oh, great,” Glenna mumbled as it dawned on her, “Vikos, the V is for Vikos.  The top man put me in his room, his own bedroom.  Out of the frying pan and into the fire.”  She heard voices outside and hurried to the window.  She recognized several of the men from the conference room earlier.  She couldn’t hear what was being said, but it was obvious that the meeting had adjourned and everyone was leaving.  Within a minute there was a knock on the door, and she felt every muscle in her body tense as she turned to face the tall man who walked into the room.  He closed the door behind himself and considered the lovely wide-eyed young woman across from him.

Chris and Lexi Denton led what they considered a normal life. Lexi worked as a dance instructor at a local studio, and Chris was a successful broker at a firm in downtown Miami, Florida. When Chris gets entangled with a crime boss who utilizes his talent for numbers to cover up deadly secrets, the pair soon discover much more than just Carlos Mandini's dark secrets, they discover their own. Chris and Lexi Denton are not who they believed.

Excerpt:

Chris was suddenly aware of one of Mandini’s cars beside them on the right. “Lex, look out on the right.” At that, Lexi became the aggressor and eased to the right toward the car.
“What are you doing?” Chris grabbed at the top of the dashboard.
Lexi nudged the other car with the side of theirs, scraping the paint, and throwing sparks as they drove with metal on metal at their high rate of speed. She was pushing them off the right side of the road.
Chris shouted, “Lex, look out! There’s no shoulder there!”
As the words escaped his mouth, she gave one more shove and with that, the other car went over an embankment and down a ravine. He looked quickly behind them in time to hear an explosion and see a plume of smoke lift into the air. This could not be his life. He knew this could not be his wife.
“Lex, pull this car over, now!” he demanded.

READ MORE

As the words were rolling off his tongue, he felt a hard shift in his body and felt himself go commando.
It was almost vertigo. His mind side-slipped and remembered everything now. Everything.
“There’s one more,” he said. His words sounded mechanical coming out of his mouth, as if someone else had taken over, something as eclipsing as the moon over the sun.
“I know. I see them.”
Chris relaxed his grip on the handle and the dash, and a military peace of being in control came over him.
Lexi deliberately shot after the remaining car that had been chasing them. It was now on their left. She pulled up beside them and paced with them, then hit her breaks, slipping behind and shot up their left side. The goon in the backseat was lowering his window when Lexi pulled the same maneuver and came again up the sedan’s right side.
Chris’ eyes were now the same color as Lexi’s, charcoal black. He pulled out the Glock and didn’t bother asking her to roll down her window. There were three men in the sedan. The glass exploded next to Lexi, but if any cut her there was no way to know it—her face didn’t even flinch.
It only took three shots.

I just finished Rogue by Laura Ranger and I absolutely loved it. The book was so full of twists and turns. Lexi is a sweet Ballet teacher and Jack is your normal run-of-the-mill accountant. Or are they?? Goverment experiments to trained killers, this book has it all. I loved the ending the most because of everything they were put through. I know I'm not making much sense but you will just have to read this spectacular book to find out what I'm trying to say. I was sad that it ended but so relieved that it did. LOVED it so much.

Laura Belle wrote:

If you are tired of reading the same old story over and over ... this book is for you. If you want a story that will keep you on your toes, full of twists and turns ... this book is for you. Rogue is not what I would describe as a slow, easy read, and for that I am thankful! (There are way too many of the same me-too, slow stories out there!) The authors unfold Lexi and Chris' story in well-paced blocks, and I felt as if I experienced everything with them step by step. I don't want to give away the plot, but you will quickly see that this story isn't just another story about a couple on the run. This story was well - written and incredibly thought out, and I look forward to more work from these authors.

Just finished reading this book and while it is not a genre that I usually look for, I can say that I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride right up to the end. Plot twists galore. Great read for a day at the beach.

Patricia Perrin wrote:

Chris and Lexi had been living a relatively normal life. Deeply in love and newly married, he worked in finance and she taught dance. The novel starts with a bang when they find themselves on the run, and the action escalates from there. Exciting action, plot twists, and mystery make this a page turner from the first word through the climactic end. What makes the story rich and endearing, on top of being a movie-worthy thriller, is the way the characters meet the challenge of finding out who they really are, and how they grow in unexpected ways. I couldn’t put it down.

 Rayne Martin is a typical teen excited to go off to college. However, the school she chooses at random is anything but typical and she begins to doubt she will ever fit in at Brighton College. Rayne grew up in the Bible belt and attended church whenever her parents wanted her to. She considered herself to be a good Christian. When she truly commits to being a believer, she embraces the fact that she is a daughter of the King and therefore, Royalty.
Now God is calling on her to wage war against the demons and Satanists threatening to overrun Brighton. Rayne is sure He is mistaken. How can someone who has never even been in a fight lead in battle? Where will she find others willing to risk their lives to stand with her against such evil?

 

Excerpt:

“Someone’s coming! We don’t recognize the cars. What do we do?”

Rayne had considered over the time what to do if this ever happened, so she didn’t hesitate to jump to action. She didn’t have a choice now. She knew she couldn’t be seen, but prayed her plan would work. She climbed up on the platform and got everyone’s attention. She said, “Some people are coming. I need everyone to sit down and open your Bibles to Proverbs two and study wisdom. Pray those who are in the woods don’t come back before whoever it is leaves. If they’re questioned, everyone cover to say they were out hunting. Reverend, can you come up and lead them, please? I have to make myself scarce.”

Everyone got into a posture of study and prayer, while Rayne ran up the back stairs to hide in a closet behind some large tools. She prayed fervently her plan would work and she wouldn’t be discovered.

The time felt like it lasted for eons. She could hear multiple muffled voices. She couldn’t make out what any of them were saying. She wished she had a speaker system to eves drop on what was happening downstairs. She was growing inpatient when she heard several footfalls coming up the back stairs. Rayne held her breath and prayed. She heard different voices. One at a time called out from various places, “All clear!”

Her heart was pounding in her ears. She began to tremble as the voices came closer. Her breathing became ragged. The door to the closet she was hiding in, opened. She closed her eyes, again held her breath and was trying to stop the trembling. She prayed, Lord Jesus, hide me from their sight. Although the man seemed to be looking right at her, staring her in the eye, he said nothing.

The door closed and an “All clear!” was called out. She let out a long, slow breath, relaxed and tipped her head back to rest on the wall behind her. Rayne knew it was only God who hid her from view.

As she heard the footsteps retreat down the front stairs, she slid down to sit on the floor and laid her head in her hands. She began to cry from the flood of nerves and adrenaline that surged through her body. She waited a long time afterward, until she heard people calling out that she was safe to come out. Her legs had gone to sleep from so long in the same position. Rayne struggled to get to her feet. The door to the closet opened and one of the women sentries helped her up. She said, “Good thing no one checked this closet.”

Rayne asked what she meant.

“Well, if they had looked in here, you would have been discovered.”

“They did look in here.”

“And you were right here?”

“Yes, but I was standing.”

“How did they not see you?”

“I thought he did, but these tools must have kept me hidden.”

“They couldn’t have.”

Rayne smiled and said, “Thank you, God! He obviously answered my prayer and hid me from their view.”

“You’re telling me you stood right here in front of him and he didn’t see you? Do you think he did but acted like he didn’t to tell everyone later?”

“I never saw recognition in his eyes. It was though he was looking through me.”

Reviews:Sarah E. Bradley on InD'tale magazine wrote:

INSPIRATIONAL: Rayne Martin was raised in the Bible belt and went to church as everyone expected her to. However, it isn’t until she chooses a random college far from home that she truly decides whether to believe or not. Unbeknownst to Rayne, the college she chose is in a town full of demons, satanic worshipers, and witches of all kinds. After some of the Christian believers in town rescue her from danger, she truly embraces God for the first time and sees herself as the daughter of the King. Called to lead the faithful against the evil forces taking over town, Rayne isn’t sure if a new Christian and teenage girl like herself has what it takes to defeat such wickedness, but if she isn’t willing to try, more than just lives will be lost — it will be their souls, too.

“Royalty” is a story of self-discovery and Christianity mixed in with some paranormal elements. The characters in the book are clear-cut and the plot has plenty of development, with lots of scriptures mixed in. The romance is a bit of roller coaster, with Rayne uncertain whether to like or hate the hero, but the romance stays at a mild but sweet level. However, the story also has several time skips, with many things happening off-screen and told by the author rather than shown. The plot is also a bit predictable. Still, “Royalty” is an interesting take on Christian fiction, with enough action to make for an exciting read.
