About The Book
In a war torn world, one soldier rises above the ashes to take the fight to the enemy. 

As the cities of New Glasgow lay largely in ruins, Sergeant Rachel Duncan leads her squad against the mechanized iron fist of the Federated Union of Planets. Short on men and materials, the odds are against them. Help is coming from other planets but with nothing left but strong willed determination, will they be able to hold their ground until it arrives?

In command of an under-armed platoon and ever increasing responsibilities, can Sergeant Rachel Duncan rise to the occasion, or will she crack under the intense pressure of a world under siege?

The rifle lay beside her as her back pushed tight against the shattered wall. She was breathing slowly to control her heart rate. The walker's metal joints squealed and its feet pounded the broken pavement of the street below. 

Counting in her head, she reached zero. With a flick of a finger, moved the rifle's selector switch to auto. Taking the pistol grip, she raised the weapon to her shoulder and braced it on top of the shattered wall.

The building was an apartment complex in the past. Now, it stood ruined and derelict like most buildings in her city. As she got ready to fire, she noticed the remains of wallpaper still clung to the wall she hid behind. Pastel ducks, bunnies and bears told her that the room she occupied was once a nursery. Now it was a ruin.

The Walker's thumping feet propelled it closer. There, it was two hundred meters down the street. Standing four stories tall, the Walker's torso pivoted from side to side looking for danger. Through the holographic site, she could make out the unit markings. This was a command vehicle of the Seventh Union Mechanized Infantry Division. It was probably the battalion commander's mech based on the antennas protruding from its iron grey head.

The Walker's sprouted small weapon pods from either side of its head. It was malevolence in motion. Walker's projected the power of the Union. More so than their navy as these were the sharp end of the Union's will.

Sweat rolled out from under her dusty balaclava and into her eyes. She tried to blink them clear as movement could attract unwanted attention. Waiting was always the hardest part. Engage too soon and you risked the rounds not being able to penetrate. Too late and they may not arm in time and would bounce off of the mech's armor.

There. She pulled the trigger and unleashed on the walker. With the mech a bare fifty meters from her position, the inferno rounds ate deeply into the armored skin. The first four shots were right on target. They impacted on the cockpit view screen and armor in the head of the beast. The remaining eight rounds walked to the left across the head and into the right weapons pod. Using the recoil to push her over, she fell on her back beside the wall she used for cover.

The weapons pod pulsed with light that brightened the ruin she hid within. She could only feel the deafening explosion. Her ear buds she wore under the balaclava protected her hearing from loud noises but amplified the quiet ones. Blast waves rolled over the building and knocked loose more bricks, dust and debris into the room. Covering her head with her arms, she kept her face from being torn by falling brick and shrapnel. 

With her head turned towards the center of her position, she locked eyes with a blue cloth rabbit. The well-worn toy was dust covered. Another reminder of what the Union has done to her home, her people and her planet. She reached out and picked up the toy. The face and ears were threadbare from the attentions of a child now long gone from this ruin. She thought of her own family, her little sister Janice in particular. Janice was only eight when she joined the militia. It was only a year later when the bombs fell on her city and Sergeant Rachel Duncan's only remaining family was the militia.

Cherime MacFarlane: Wild in Willow

The Larkin family plans to celebrate Christmas a little early due to a commitment made by the oldest son. But things are brewing in the background that may make it Wild in Willow. Irene Maddox is accompanying her friend Libby to the celebration. Can the family survive the blow up? Only time will tell.

Meet Award-Winning, Best-Selling Author Cherime MacFarlane. A prolific multi-genre author, she has a broad range of interests that reflect her been there-done that life. Romance, Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal, all sorts of characters and plots evolve from a vivid imagination.

I came to Alaska kicking and screaming in 1975, and I never want to leave. I cut firewood on shares for money to get through the winter. I swore I would not live above the Alaska Range because it was too cold there and wound up in the Copper River Basin where it got just a cold as Fairbanks.

My second husband, a Scot from Glasgow, was the love of my life. When I write Scots dialect, I experienced hearing it from my in-laws. Each time my husband got on the phone to Scotland after five seconds, I could hardly understand a word. I was my second husband's chief mechanic's helper and roadie.

I live in a cabin which is slowly being surrounded by the city and wish I were further out. My two cats and Husky-Collie mix dog are happy in our little slice of heaven called Alaska. In the silence of winter dreams of people and places provide a rich pool of ideas to explore.

Nicole Sorrell: The Art of Getting Away

Carlos is head over heels for his sassy girl Andie, and he wants their first Christmas together to be extra special. A romantic escape to the lake cabin where they met will be perfect. But Andie's ex-boyfriend interrupts his plans, begging her to give him a second chance. Carlos suspects the former gang member isn't telling Andie the truth, and decides he's going to do whatever it takes to keep her. And if that means fighting dirty...

My first love was reading. From the age of ten I read everything I could get my hands on. I was seventeen the first time I closed a book and thought, I want to do that. Write a story that good. It took a few years, but I finally published my first novel, joining the ranks of contemporary fiction authors. I included everything I love in a book. It's a romance story, has suspense and surprise, and with book two, became a women's fiction series.

I'm still a voracious reader, currently residing in a rural area of the mid-west. After living in various parts of the U.S. and traveling abroad, I recently moved into the very same home where I grew up. I enjoy country living: ours is a small community, and everyone knows everybody. The culture of the city also draws me in: the shopping, dining, and the opera and ballet.

I love traveling, especially to other countries, and I speak Spanish. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Hispanic Literature, and a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising. Home decorating is one of my favorite things. Of course I love to read, and I'm a published poet. I like baking pies and drinking ale. Oh, and I like playing cornhole, and I spend way more time than I should playing computer games.

My sidekick is a tiny Yorkshire terrier named Georgie Doodlebug. I call her GiGi. She's my fur baby.

Sybil Shae: One More Day: Surviving the Waves

After the hurricane Caitlyn's life was in shambles, much like the buildings and the land around her, everything was destroyed. Her home, her family and her love all torn apart by a single wave. There was nothing left for her at Luna Beach. She moved away and spent years struggling to put her life back together. Just when she is starting to feel a small sense of normalcy, a Christmas Card arrives in the mail. What it says sets her emotions and her sanity into a whirlwind.

For Love, Real Love, The Kind Of Love That Lasts Forever….Sybil

Sitting in a chair, at a desk with headphones on, typing away...That’s where you’ll find Sybil Shae most days. She loses track of time and reality as she dives into her romance world, becoming one with her characters and growing with them as they appear through words on the tablet screen in concert with the imagery of a fool’s paradise we all visit in our dreams.

Sybil Shae writes romance, both spicy romance reads and clean reads. She feels it, breathes it, and has built her world around it. Love is at the center of all things. Welcome to Sybil’s world.

Sybil Shae DOES NOT write Erotica by any means, even the Spicy parts aren't as spicy as most others on the market. She writes with Love as the central plot rather than adult content.

P.J. MacLayne: Love on the Dunes

Sunny skies, sandy beaches, palm trees and swimsuits. It wasn't like any Christmas Carena Galloway had ever known. She missed her family and worried about her relationship with her boyfriend, Aiden Wade. A picnic on the beach with friends was just the thing to distract her from her problems. Meeting a celebrity was a bonus.

But she never counted on attracting a stalker.

A computer geek by day and a writer by night, P.J. MacLayne grew up in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania and sets much of her writing in that landscape. She currently lives in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains.

Stephany Tullis: Baby Boomer Bash

Baby Boomers ONLY! No family allowed.

High school friends Sherry Mattison and Maddy Meriweather refuse to allow their adult children to ruin their love of Christmas and the family based traditions that are so near and dear to their hearts. Unlike Ebenezer Scrooge and the Grinch, they don't decide to cancel this year's Christmas, nor do they harden their hearts. Instead of presenting their annual plea for an extended family Christmas like those of the good old days, the baby boomers greet their families on Thanksgiving Day with a new attitude and a feisty festive spirit that includes a non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner: pot luck!

Their daughters are shocked but pleased when Christmas plans are not discussed as the family watches the annual Thanksgiving Day parade. The guys were relieved that dessert was the focus of football half time and not drawing names for the annual family Christmas gift exchange.

Sherry Mattison and Maddy Meriweather kick off their plans for their first annual Baby Boomer Christmas celebration with a Black Friday shopping spree. And then the thirty-day count-down begins!

Will the boomers' plans implode when their families discover their plans for a holiday beach vacation in the Caribbean?

In my world, there is no life without writing, traveling, family, music and my love of politics. My loves and interests are central to my writing. With this backdrop, regardless of the date or time of your visit, you will find family.

My world (my back-story) is guided by my faith and the inspiration I receive from God. Without exaggeration, family and relationships are the core of every book I write.

I love to travel and like me, my characters are always off and running and in so doing require me to research (and often visit) so many fascinating places.

I also love music—all kinds and I’m never surprised by what track finds its way to my personal playlists and a character’s ring tone, door chime, or car radio station.

People frown sometimes and don’t understand my love of politics, but I have a political administration background and thrived on and in my past government career. For me, it’s the people, the process and what democracy offers. As with life, my fictional towns and cities include mayors, governors, school board members, etc.

If you haven’t guessed, I love my world that allows me to not only live the life I love but to also share it with others.

Valerie J. Clarizio: Jess & Sam’s Story

After twenty years, Jess returns home to care for her ailing mother. Close proximity to the man she once loved who'd dumped her on the very day she expected a marriage proposal reawakens her broken heart and strengthens her vow to never put faith in a man.

By his own choice, Sam's the most elusive bachelor in town, his walls of defense firmly in place. But when the feisty little brunette he dated in high school and college moves back, Sam needs to step up his game, stiffening those walls to concrete. True love? A forever union? What kind of idiot believes in that?

No matter which way Sam and Jess turn in their little home town, they run into each other. And stumbling under the mistletoe isn't what either one needs.
Valerie Clarizio lives in romantic Door County Wisconsin with her husband and two extremely spoiled cats. She loves to read, write, and spend time at her cabin in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

She's lived her life surrounded by men, three brothers, a husband, and a male Siamese cat who required his own instruction manual. Keeping up with all the men in her life has turned her into an outdoors enthusiast, of which her favorite activity is hiking in
national parks. While out on the trails, she has plenty of time to conjure up irresistible characters and unique storylines for her next romantic suspense or sweet contemporary romance novel.
