Deliver by Pam Godwin!!

His name was Joshua Carter. Now it's whatever she wants it to be.

She is a Deliverer.

She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price. 

As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold. 

Delivering is all she knows.

The one thing she can't deliver is a captive from slavery.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her...from herself.

Romantic Thriller
Stand Alone (no cliff-hanger). The sequel is coming Summer 2014.
Content warning: Graphic sex, violence, and psychological abuse. Age 18+ only.

He slammed a fist into the nearest tree trunk. Again. Again. Pain ricocheted through his hand, down his arm, and fed his breaking heart.
Out of the corner of his eye, he caught her silhouette standing a few yards away. A slender shadow, shrouded by darkness. And in her raised arms, she held a gun, trained on him.
He threw another fist. Absorbed the burn. Expelled the rancor. He knew she was holding a gun on him to prevent him from running and putting her family at further risk. Regardless, she wouldn’t shoot him. Not because she needed a slave, but because she loved what was hers with a self-destructing passion. He faced her and held out his arms. “I’m yours.”
The girl and the gun didn’t move.
“Lose the damned mask and stop hiding from me.” He raked his throbbing hands through his hair. “Scream, cry, hit something. Hit me. But for God’s sake, let it out.”
The shadowy lines of her body wavered. The gun lowered, returned to her boot.
He stretched out his arms, savoring the cool breeze brushing over his unrestrained skin. “I stand here without rope or chains, Liv, tethered to you by my own will.” His blood beat with the ferocity of his words. “I won’t be free until you are.”
Her head jerked back, her body rigid. Then she walked straight to him and unleashed her fists on his chest. She clobbered him over and over, her gasps accelerating with each fall of her hand.
The lashing didn’t hurt. Not like the whimpers rising from her chest. She was hurting, lashing out for the wrongs that had been done to her. A sharp pain swelled in his throat. The only thing he could do was take it in, try to bear some of it for her.
He held his arms out and his body open. When her hits ebbed into weak slaps, she stumbled back, hugging herself and clutching her elbows.
His heartbeat slogged through the ache in his chest. He kept his arms outstretched and whispered, “I’m here.”

Finding her past was supposed to end the nightmare. Only it was just the beginning.

Review for Almost Too Far from the Almost Bad Boys Series by A.O. Peart!!

Almost Bad Boys Banner  

  Almost Matched Cover

Would you take another shot at love? Or just settle on a friend with benefits?
Twenty-five-year-old Natalie Davenport lugs substantial baggage. One boyfriend after the next has been a total disaster, leaving Natalie distrustful toward the male population in general. So when Colin Hampton crosses her path, she’s cautious. Her heart (and some other body parts!) nudges her to go for it, while her head wants her to run for the hills.
Colin is one of those gorgeous guys who attract women, no matter the age or marital status. With a successful career at a popular Seattle radio station, hard body, and charming personality, he is the complete package. But something dark lurks in the corners of his soul; some murky experience that has changed him—maybe for the better, but maybe for the worse.
Will he steal her heart and stomp over it like other guys did?
Will she let him into her heavily fortified world despite herself?
Or will they settle somewhere in the middle—establishing the emotional boundaries to protect them from falling in love?
This contemporary romantic comedy blends humor, sensuality, and angst, with zany characters and witty dialogue.
***Warning: contains sexual situations (some quite vivid!), profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and there is a lot of appletini and beer drinking. May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prudes and killjoys with no sense of humor***

Almost Broken Up Cover
How far would you go to protect the one you love?
The terrors of Colin’s past are revealed and accepted by Natalie. Her doubts about letting him into her life are finally disbanded and replaced by a sense of security and commitment. But Natalie doesn’t know that Colin’s past hides more dark secrets unknown even to him.
When a delusional psychopath threatens Colin’s life, things quickly become complicated. Natalie’s stubborn character and desire to kick ass won’t let her step aside and allow the authorities to handle the danger. She gets herself tangled up with street hoodlums, befriends a Russian mobster’s high-maintenance girlfriend, and becomes expert at picking locks and hiding evidence. ******************************************************** 
This contemporary romantic comedy/mystery blends humor and sensuality with enough thriller elements to make you clutch the pages with terror. The offbeat characters and witty dialogue from Almost Matched are here to stay.
**Warning: contains sexual situations, profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and the appletini is still the drink of choice. May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prigs and sourpusses who get easily affronted**
***Almost Broken Up is the second installment in the Almost Bad Boys series, and it comes after book one, Almost Matched. The books in this series should be read in order. They are not stand-alone books***
Almost Too Far Cover
A martini glass of sizzling romance, a jigger of suspense and crime, perfectly shaken with a twist of wacky humor.
Where would you draw the line between love and justice?
When Colin’s feisty great grandma Helga mysteriously disappears, Natalie and the gun-toting Svetlana rush to the rescue. With the help of Russian mafia goons and Natalie’s girlfriends, they get more than they bargained for. Natalie invites trouble into her life all over again. She could find herself questioned by the police, or worse, her relationship with Colin could become rickety once more.
And so the race begins: with grandma Helga on the loose, Colin turns to the police for help, and Natalie is a stiletto heel tip outside of the law. But being in the wrong has never felt so vindicated. ******************************************************** 
**Warning: due to sexual situations, nasty language, and a high dose of sarcasm this book may not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prudes who get easily affronted**
***The books in the Almost Bad Boys series should be read in order. They are not stand-alone books.

I found this book utterly hilarious!!!  I so want Colin's great-grandmother to be mine!!!  She's awesome as are her friends!!!

All the drama starts when Colin's great-grandmother goes missing at her own birthday party.  Natalie makes it her mission to find her, and with some digging, finds out where she's gone.  Together with her girlfriends, she heads out to find her and bring her home.  Colin and his grandmother are beyond worried about what has happened, and all Natalie wants to do is take her home and take the worry away from him.  

On the way there, the five girls get into a little bit of drama, and I gotta say... I want to have Svetlana as a friend... She's great!!!  

When the feisty old lady is found, she's none the worse for wear.  She didn't want to worry everyone, and is shocked to hear the police were called after she disappeared.  All Helga wants to spend her birthday the way she wants to spend it.  

I loved this book!!  I would love to hand around with Helga and her friends.  They are some great old ladies who don't take anyone's crap!!  They do what they want and don't care what anyone thinks!!

I was born and raised in Poland. When I was just seven-years-old I decided to learn English, because I wanted to translate my favorite Polish fairytales.
I write in multiple genres, including paranormal, fantasy, urban fiction, sci-fi, contemporary, and short stories. I am a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Western Washington Chapter, author critique group, Writers In the Rain, and several authors’ and readers’ networking groups on Linkedin, Facebook, and Goodreads.
I love reading good books almost as much as writing them. I describe myself as “European born, American by choice”. I can never decide which season I prefer—summer or fall. I speak with Polish accent and love listening to the Southern drawl. I am passionate about watercolor painting, fashion—especially stilettos, rock climbing, environment, and organic food and gardening. I live in the Seattle area with my family and a chronically curious cat, Cinnamon.

Mia Langdon—tomb raider and adventure-seeker—has everything she wants. Freedom. Independence. No chains (a.k.a. a man). Her troubles begin when she’s attacked on a dig in Peru. Soon, she’s forced to use her tomb raiding talents to find the flaming arrows of an Egyptian goddess. In the wrong hands, this weapon could destroy the human race—and nearly had.

Used to doing things her own way, it isn’t long before she figures out that she needs the help of Harrison Braden Stanton, her stuffy, but so yummy, Egyptologist and ex-lover. There’s one problem. He despises what she does. As Mia and Harrison find themselves in the middle of a battle between the Egyptian gods and goddess, there’s no choice for the woman with a Grand Canyon-sized independence streak and the man working for the Egyptian god, Osiris, but to work together to prevent the destruction of all they love.

Anthropology PhD candidate Lexi Harrison never bares it all when she belly dances for a strip club crowd. She doesn’t have to—she’s that good. Every performance earns money toward her degree, and restores the sense of power that her painful childhood ripped away.

Something is different about tonight. A man whose silver gaze seems to touch her skin beneath her veils. When a rowdy customer crosses the line, he comes to her rescue with the speed of a falcon—complete with wings.

Mikos Tyomni has never seen anyone dance the raqs sharqi like Lexi. Trust his tormentor, Archangel Michael, to put him in close contact with the cause of his downfall: a mortal woman. Particularly this mortal woman. The Defender. He has only thirty days to win her trust before Hell’s deadliest demons attempt the mother of all prison breaks.

No matter how sexy the messenger is, Lexi’s career plans don’t include some crazy idea that she’s the last line of defense against the forces of evil. Until her university mentor’s murder leaves her holding the key to Hell. And fighting a losing battle against a passion with the unholy power to bring down Heaven…

This book was a cross between Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones... I loved it!!  

Mia Langdon isn't happy when her partner Graham decides to make a rather dangerous decision without asking her first.  To find the flaming arrows of an Egyptian goddess, and Mia wants no part of it.  Unfortunately, the woman who wants them found isn't taking no for an answer.  

To make matters worse, in order to find them, Mia needs the help of Harrison Stanton.  Her ex-lover, who she still has feelings for.  They don't see eye to eye, as he hates what she does, and she doesn't understand what he does.  They are at a crossroads, but know they need to find these arrows before they get into the wrong hands.  She knows they are dangerous and the person who wants them knows just what they can do.  

As I said, I loved this book!  I loved getting lost in the adventures of Mia, and wish I could do that myself at times.  She is a modern day Tomb Raider, and is proud of what she's accomplished.  She's fiercly independent and does not like the fact that Graham has put her in this kind of position.  Because of him, he's put and the people she considers family at risk, and she will stop at nothing to protect them.

Harrison was similar to Indiana Jones.  He was a professor and curator of Stratford Museum, and he knew just how good Mia was.  He just didn't agree with what she did with the artifacts after she found them.  I loved Harrison, and although he was a bit serious at times, you knew he still had feelings for Mia.  He also knows how dangerous the arrows are, and is told by his father he needs to move them.  

There was action from the very first word of this book!  I can not wait to read it again and again....


  1. How long have you been writing?
I’ve always written but didn’t think about writing as a career until much later in life. Like in my late thirties. I don’t remember anything specific that led me in this direction. I just remember always writing. I loved English Composition and writing essays, I was the editor of my school’s newspaper and since then, it seems like I’ve always written. For company newsletters, produced training documents and handbooks and even did some legal writing. And once I started reading romances, I was hooked on writing fiction.

  1. What or who inspires you to write?
No one inspires me to write except my imagination and how much I love writing and being involved in the publishing world.

  1. What genre do you like to read?
I’m an eclectic reader and what I read really depends on my mood. Right now, I’m in a horror frame of mine and have just finished several really wonderful spooky books by Michaelbrent Collins who I discovered. I’m also a picky reader and while I love urban fantasy, I’m tired of the same old trope. Because I have limited time to read, I need to be hooked or I’ll put the book down. And when I put it down and don’t think about going back to it, I’m done. I love action-oriented books, which I write. I love characters but for me, it’s more about stuff happening. The books I read tend to cross genres but they all have lots of stuff happening.

  1. What is your favorite genre to write?
Right now, all my books are paranormal romance/urban fantasy. I love this genre because of the otherworld aspects of the things that go bump in the night. I think it’s also because I really get to use my imagination with this. However, my absolute favorite genre is science fiction romance and I’m actually, among working on my series, writing two science fiction romances. Taking my characters into the stars, for some reason, really excites me. I blame it on Janelle Taylor’s Moondust and Madness and Dorchester Publishing for their LoveSpell books in the nineties.

  1. Who is your favorite author and why?
I really have two - Jim Butcher but for his Harry Dresden series only. I tried to read his fantasy series but after Dresden, well, I can’t read him as anything else. I just love the world he created for Harry, and I’m in awe of his imagination. My second favorite is Stephen King. Seriously. He’s so wickedly scary and such a genius at creating terror on the page. I’ve read his On Writing book a number of times. It’s quite inspirational.

  1. What do you love about writing and why?
I used to play with Barbie dolls and make up stories with them. I think it’s the creative aspect I like. Plus, I love to research and continue to learn. And, I love words—love crafting sentences into an interesting and entertaining story.

  1. What is the book about?
Blood on the Moon is the first in the Children of Egypt series about the half-immortal descendants of ancient Egypt’s gods and goddesses born to protect mankind against ancient relics with a thirst for human blood.
Key of Solomon is book one of another archeology based story that features fallen angels and demons and quests for magical objects that threaten the safety of the world if the bad guy demon gets a hold of them.

  1. What or who was the inspiration for the book?
For Key of Solomon, book 1 of my Relic Defender series with Samhain. At the time I wrote this, there wasn’t a lot on the market about fallen angels and I really wanted to write about them. Plus, I loved Tomb Raider and got the idea of combining fallen angels, demons and a woman on a quest for an ancient book that controls demons. All this combined made Key of Solomon and the characters that fill it.

For Blood on the Moon, book 1 of my Children of Egypt series, again, here I am with my Tomb Raider love but this time, I married it with my love for all things Egyptian.  I wrote this book so I could write my own version of Lara Croft who turns out to be the daughter of an Egyptian goddess. Her hero is the son of an Egyptian god. The idea was to turn this into a series featuring the half-blood children of Egyptian gods and goddesses battling it out for various dangerous to mankind relics.

  1. Who are the characters in the book?
In Key of Solomon, the main characters are Lexi and Mikos (fallen angel), Beliel (bad demon) and an assortment of secondary characters who were also fun to create including Marisol a fiery female fallen angel and Jackson, a sexy Texan, who get their story in book 2 coming out in May.

In Blood on the Moon, we have Mia my tomb raider and Harrison, ex-lover and Egyptologist. Plus, we have a jewel thief and ex-bad guy. The most interesting part is they are all children of Egyptian gods and goddesses.

  1. If you could have five authors, alive or dead, who would they be and why?
Jim Butcher and Stephen King for the reasons I noted above.
JK Rowling because I love, love, love Harry Potter and I’d love to meet the woman behind the series
Nora Roberts because I admire her so much.
Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child because I’d love to talk to them about Pendergast and how much I love that character and their stories

About the Author:
