Breathless

Lydia Frederickson is afraid to answer her telephone. Widowed and alone, she only wants to get through another anniversary of her husband’s death without falling to pieces, but a stalker isn’t making that goal easy. The disturbing calls are becoming increasingly personal and threatening, and everyone who knows her is suspect. The only person she knows isn’t making the calls is her new ponytailed, tattooed—and breathtakingly handsome— minister, Matthew Winters.

Former narcotics agent-turned-minister Matthew Winters knows he’s not what the town expected in their new pastor, but he’s up for the challenge. What he doesn’t expect is the sudden attraction he feels for parishioner Lydia Frederickson. When he discovers she’s the victim of a stalker, he feels God’s intervention has led him—both a cop and a preacher—to her. Matthew knows he’s falling for the beautiful widow, but a secret from his past may undermine their future.

Second Chances for Trampled Hearts: Book 1 in the Bear Creek Saddle Series

A handsome rancher who lost his faith along with his young wife…
A waitress, abandoned by her cheating ex, and looking for a fresh start…

Allie Crawford buys half-ownership of the cowboy’s diner in the small mountain town of Bear Creek Saddle, Idaho. It’s all she can afford, and it’s about as far from Miami as she can get. Will it be far enough?
“Big Bad Bill” inherited the town’s infamous old diner from his great-uncle, who insisted it stay in the family. Bill knows cattle, not the restaurant business—so he’ll foot the bill to get it going again, and let the woman champing at the bit for her own restaurant handle running it.
Then Allie needs his help with renovations, and Bill finds he can’t stay away, after all.
Neither expects the friendship that blooms between them. But even beautiful evergreen trees and soaring mountain peaks can’t soothe the pain of betrayal and loss.
Faith may be the only thing big enough to heal their trampled hearts, and give them both a second chance at love…
Second Chances for Trampled Hearts is New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Shoshanna Evers’
first inspirational romance writing as Shoshanna Gabriel.
Author Shoshanna Gabriel (aka Shoshanna Evers)
Wait, what happened? Why?
A note from Shoshanna:

After over five years as a published erotic romance author, I am saying goodbye to that genre, and with it, the name I spent so long building up with my “Sexily *EVERS* After” books. I made a decision to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and it made being Shoshanna Evers uncomfortable for me, because I feel like I am no longer the same person who wrote those sexy books.
Now I want to write romance novels that also include a faith element. To write about people changing completely when God enters their lives, just as my life has changed.
I’m going to move forward with my career openly—no denying that I wrote as Shoshanna Evers—and let the fact that I used to be a hard-core Jewish erotica author and am now a Christian inspirational romance author be my testimony that God can change people’s lives completely.
So I will be writing these new inspirational romances as Shoshanna Gabriel, and I hope you, my readers and my friends, stick with me!
While there is no secret that Shoshanna used to write naughty books, the new name is a way to ensure readers won’t pick up an Evers book thinking it’s a Gabriel book by accident. That’s because the Shoshanna Gabriel books will be written with the Christian reader in mind, without profanity or gratuitous content. The new books will have Christian themes and faith-based stories along with the romance!

Evie (Socially Awkward Lonely-Hearts Club, Part 1), a Christian Chick-Lit Romance: Have Accent, Will Snog

 What readers are saying:
"You did a great job on this book. I loved the relationship between the 4 women, it was so fun to read. I fell in love with Luke and couldn't wait to see where their relationship went. I am looking forward to reading your next book and see how Candace's adventure turns out." Candi

"This was awesome! I wish I could write like you do. I'd love to read them all!!!" Sherry

"I actually laughed out loud a couple of times. Can’t wait to read Candace’s story. Just the beginning was hilarious!" Sue Stinnett Blog

Evie is the 1st book in this hysterical series of awkward women attempting to make a love connection. The stories are better read in order: Evie, Candace, Trina, & Sydney.

Socially awkward lonely-hearts unite! Our new dating club will boost you out of that rut, break you free of self-inflicted isolation, and help you figure out exactly what appeals to single males of a marriageable age.

But, is this a case of the socially awkward trying to help the socially awkward? Surely, you aren't that awkward.

Where do these fascinating single men hang out?

~Coffee shops
Until you're so hyped on caffeine you can't stop the flow of words. Maybe that's not helpful when you're already awkward.

~the Gym
It might help if you're actually capable of more than ten minutes on the treadmill. Perhaps you should get in shape before you get in shape?

~Speed-Dating
Surely, that's the answer. Except that guy who fries squirrel for dinner.

~Blind dates set up by your mother
Is he posting your pic on Twitter? Oh, that was you climbing out the bathroom window.

~What about that guy from junior high?
He's singing about you. And everyone's watching.

Sigh. Don't give up. We've got just the guy for you. YES! That one. We knew you'd be pleased.
Socially Awkward Lonely-Hearts, no more...

Evie would rather spout Shakespeare quotes than communicate with a man, until she meets the Brit. Every time Luke opens his mouth, she hears Mr. D'arcy. Ohhh, he's swoon-worthy. If only, she doesn't wet her pants because he may know more Shakespeare than she does!

Socially Awkward Lonely-Hearts Club, a Christian Chick-Lit Romance is laugh-out-loud fun that will fulfill your yearning for romance and comedy in four—count 'em—FOUR happily-every-afters. Lonely-hearts, no more. Be sure to read them all

Beauty and the Beast (Faerie Tale Collection Book 1)

Beauty and the Beast is the first in a new series of fairy tales for young adult readers. Fans of Disney, fairy tales, and fantasy will love the Faerie Tale Collection by Jenni James.

BOOK DESCRIPTION
A prince by day and a wolf by night—

Prince Alexander has been turned into a werewolf and has one year to find someone to love the beast and break the spell, or he will be a wolf forever. He has nearly given up achieving the impossible, knowing no girl would ever fall in love with such a monster.

Just when he is about to abdicate the throne to his cousin, he meets Cecelia Hammerstein-Smythe, while a wolf, and begins to hope for the first time in months. Can he balance both worlds as a human and beast, gaining the love and trust of a girl who has every reason to despise him?

Cecelia detests the prince. She only knows Alexander as the arrogant monarch—the tyrant who has made her life miserable—though perhaps he's changed right before her eyes. He's not as full of himself as he once was. The prince is gentle now... but then again, so is the beast.

REVIEWS FOR NORTHANGER ALIBI (THE JANE AUSTEN DIARIES), ALSO BY JENNI JAMES:

"Twilight obsessed teens (and their moms) will relate to Claire's longing for the fantastical but will be surprised when they find the hero is even better than a vampire or werewolf. Hilarious, fun and romantic!"
-TwilightMOMS.com

“Stephenie Meyer meets Jane Austen in this humorous, romantic tale of a girl on a mission to find her very own Edward Cullen. I didn't want it to end!"
--Mandy Hubbard, author of Prada & Prejudice

"We often speak of Jane Austen's satiric wit, her social commentary, her invention of the domestic novel. But Jenni James, in this delicious retelling of Northanger Abbey, casts new light on Austen's genius in portraying relationships and the foibles of human nature--in this case, the projection of our literary fantasies onto our daily experience."
--M.M. Bennetts, author of May 1812.

ABOUT AUTHOR JENNI JAMES
Jenni James is the happy mother of seven boisterous children and the author of several book babies that include: Pride & Popularity, Northanger Alibi and Persuaded from The Jane Austen Diaries for teens and Prince Tennyson an inspirational novel. She enjoys writing clean literature for children, teens and adults. Look out for more of her Faerie Tale Collection; Sleeping Beauty and Rumplestiltskin are coming soon!
Jenni James is the busy mother of ten kids (7 hers, 3 her hubby's) and has nearly thirty published book babies. She's an award-winning, best-selling author, who works full-time from home and dreams about magical things and then writes about what she dreams.

Even though she was born in Arizona, went to high school in New Mexico--and loves Mexican food more than anything--she lived so many years in England that when she and her children finally returned home she couldn't for the life of her remember how to speak truly American anymore. She gets teased relentlessly on her British accent and connotations--and there are sometimes altogether where she only speaks like a true Englishman for several hours at time without having any idea until someone points it out. Hence the relentless teasing.

Oddly however, when she returns to Britain and no one can tell she's American, she doesn't mind it one bit. The weather, the rolling green hills, the incredible architecture, the immaculate cottage gardens, the memories, the many lifelong friends and houses and villages she's lived in, the balls/galas/parties she hosted while she was there... it's all a second home to her now and a place that has always and will always capture her heart.

Some of her works include The Jane Austen Diaries (Pride & Popularity, Emmalee, Persuaded...), The Jenni James Faerie Tale Collection (Cinderella, Snow White, Rumplestiltskin, Beauty and the Beast...), the Andy & Annie series for children, Revitalizing Jane: Drowning, My Paranormal Life, Not Cinderella's Type, and the Austen in Love Series.

When she isn't writing up a storm, she is chasing her kids around their new cottage and farm in the tops of the southwestern mountains, entertaining friends at home, or kissing her amazingly hunky hubby. Her life is full of laughter, crazy, and sunshine.

Though his work is thrilling and he has made a fortune in gold, there is one thing he is desperately missing: a wife with which to share both his life and riches. He has been writing letters to a sweet and feisty young woman named Hannah James, a jewelry store clerk in New York, and she is eager to join him out West. Problems arise when Hannah raises her desire to continue selling jewelry as she had back East. Daniel, out of concern for her safety, initially tries to discourage her due to the fact that the town is known for its history of run-ins with bandits. One day, while Daniel is away working, Hannah attempts to go mining on her own, and due to her lack of experience, she finds herself lost in a deep, dark cave. Will Daniel be able to save his new bride from danger, and if so, how can he ensure her safety while helping her fulfill her lifelong dreams?

A Mail Order Bride For Franklin: Sheriff Franklin McQueen and his son, Geoffrey, work tirelessly to keep the town safe from bandits. A few years prior, Franklin’s beloved wife, Gladys, passed away; now, the sheriff longs for a new wife on which to bestow his love and care–and with which he can better run his jail house. After placing an advertisement in the newspaper for a mail order bride, he begins corresponding with a young woman named Miss Louise Winchester. When she arrives, however, she feels overwhelmed and out of her depth while helping in the jail house, and comes to believe that she may not be the right sort of woman for Franklin after all. When she finally begins to feel at ease, it turns out that one of the bandits has it in for her. Can Franklin keep his new bride safe from harm?

A Mail Order Bride For Benjamin: Upon being released from jail on account of his good behavior, Benjamin Pickett is ready to start a new life and set up roots in the town of Coloma. The former bandit has begun to form a friendship with Franklin, the town sheriff, who warns him that although he is reformed in the eyes of the law, that the townsfolk may still be wary of him.
With Franklin’s help, Benjamin acquires a job at the neighboring lumber mill, and after gaining the trust of his new boss and his fellow workers, he is given a chance to build the home of his dreams. He longs for a wife to share his life with and places an advertisement in the newspaper, and before long, he is sending a ticket for Miss Maybelle Fields to travel from Maryland to join him. Only one problem remains. How can he propose to Maybelle until he has confessed the truth about his past?

A Mail Order Bride For Thomas: Thomas Cooke, the head supervisor at the lumber mill, watches his coworkers return home every day to their loving wives and begins to desperately long for a wife of his own. There aren’t many women living in town who aren’t already spoken for, however, so he decides to place an advertisement for a mail order bride. When a charming cook named Violet Pringle arrives, it seems as though they were made for each other, cut from the same piece of dough, as Violet likes to think. Just days after their wedding, while Thomas is away at the mill, a fire breaks out in town. To his dismay, he learns that the flames are in fact coming from his home. Will Violet, the love of his life, be spared? Will the flames devour the home he built with his very hands?

In Love With Malta: The Hidden Treasures

What is it about the Maltese Islands that brings an Irishman back to these little multi-coloured rocks year after year, fills him with joy and enchantment, and sends him home restored, revitalised, and eagerly looking forward to his next visit? A good question, I hear you say, and one that I suspect thousands of others have asked themselves but can’t explain the magnetism of the islands or why they like me, became addicted to this idyllic little spot on the planet.
In this ‘Guide to the Hidden Treasures of the Maltese Islands,’ I have answered that question. It is well known that Malta is renowned for its heroic history, exquisite landscape and its charming inhabitants, but I have been amazed to find the Maltese Islands so brimful with hidden gems that are not featured or well known, and I figure that without guidance, it might take visitors several trips to discover them. I have been coming for twelve years and I’m still adding to my collection of ‘must visit’ beauty spots, little treasures that you won’t find in the mainstream guide books, but are well worth seeing, and in my opinion, define the charm and mystique of Malta, Gozo and Comino.
Malta has many fine bustling cities and towns. The capital, the World Heritage City of Valletta, is an amazing example of baroque architecture and is a wonderful testament to the artistry of the Knights who built it all those centuries ago. Today it stands majestically in all its beauty and splendour, adorned with magnificent palaces, richly embellished churches, old world shops and restaurants.

Throughout the islands you will also find lots of sleepy villages and picturesque little fishing ports. But Malta can be lively and modern too with a myriad of restaurants, cafes, clubs and nightlife. There is something for everyone to enjoy from living it up in modern urban resorts to meandering at your leisure in little traditional hamlets and villages dotted throughout the islands where time seems to stand still and you can linger awhile and relax in the warm sunshine.
So, come with me on a trek through this ancient paradise of history, beauty and intrigue. If like me, you are addicted to exquisite beauty, fascinated by rich culture or enchanted by warm friendly people, then a stroll through these delightful little islands will fill you with pleasure, gladden your heart and leave you eagerly looking forward to your next visit to the Maltese Islands.

READER’S FAVORITE 5-STAR REVIEW FOR BARELY ABOVE WATER
reviewed by Deborah Stone (Sept. 19, 2016)
"Barely Above Water by Gail Pallotta has a powerful and heart wrenching message that we all need to hear. Suzie has something wrong with her, but no one seems to know what. Without a diagnosis, she is perceived, by some, to be lazy and complaining. No medical doctor has been able to help, so Suzie takes a giant leap of faith and trusts God to lead her. She moves to Florida to see an alternative medicine doctor that once helped her mother's friend. With no job, she relies on God and her savings while she looks for work. She ends up taking a summer-only job coaching a make-shift swim team with inexperienced swimmers. Although temporary, it will keep her going through the summer while she looks for other opportunities to support herself and pay for her treatments. Suzie meets Matt, the Park and Recreation Director and her new boss. When more than a work relationship begins to develop, Suzie feels she must tell Matt about her illness. Will he stand by her or walk away? Is telling him a risk that Suzie is willing to take?
Gail Pallotta introduces us to a world with options when it comes to taking care of our bodies. She speaks with authority on the subject because she understands it first hand. Gail Pallotta's characters are real and convincing because they come from a place of understanding. Gail's love story is fragile and tender, but with an inner strength that comes from trust and faith in God. Gail Pallotta's story is inspiring and resonates with hope when all hope seems to be gone. A lovely story with well defined and well developed characters, and a story line with factual information that will help, or at least educate, readers.”
