Help other writers by L.S. Hawker

Awesome post about helping other Authors.

The Page Turner

My friend—we’ll call her A for reasons that will become clear—belonged to an online support group for unpublished authors. Everybody was nice and, as the name implies, supportive.

Detective Michaela Kendall’s abduction at the age of fourteen left her with a burden of becoming a self-appointed protector. The brutalization of her capture left her without any memory of the horrible ordeal except for terrifying dreams of Atelic Horton, her captor. When he escapes from prison, she knows it’s her duty to capture him. Circumstances throw her together with Marshal Ray Steele, an encounter she wanted to forget but it seems he didn’t take too kindly to a gun being pointed in his face. His rough and tuff cowboy ways are known for upholding the law to any measure within the bounds of Justice.

When Michaela and Ray set out to find the prisoner they soon find out they need each other but the journey is full of twists and danger. Ray proves to be her protector on more than one occasion. Somewhere along the way, Michaela sees him in a different light, that not all men were the same. But, lurking in the shadows, Atelic watches from a distance ready to make his move.

Romance Blurb

Thanks for Sharing Kari!

Ruby’s heart froze as she threw her dead husband over the cliff.

When Beau walks into her life, one glance has her running from her past. He couldn’t want someone like her. It should be easy to avoid his quiet charm.

If he can convince her she’s a prize, not prey, he might have a chance. Beau’s captivated when Ruby scrambles from him whenever he gets too close. Her sweetness is an allure he can’t fight.
Can Beau convince Ruby she is beloved?

Don’t miss A Ruby Glows, the fifteenth romance in the Cutter’s Creek Series, by Kari Trumbo. If you like engaging, sweet stories that leave you wanting even more, then this historical Christian romance is just for you!
