(A Survivor series novel)


Deborah Leigh

Dark contemporary romance with a HEA

Release Date 4th of January 2017





When the worst thing imaginable happens to Mary Dougal, her physical body might have survived but her soul feels like it has died. Now the only thing getting her up every morning is the thought of revenge. Making her attackers pay will be the final act in her life.

Feeling like half a man after a tragic accident, former soldier Cain “Ace” Turner has given up on even the idea of love. He’s focused on building his construction business and trying to leave his painful past behind him. With his family’s support and sometimes unwelcome meddling, he tries to just live one day at a time.

Of course love doesn’t give up that easily, and it just might be the only thing to save them both. When these two meet and get surprised by possibilities, can they prove together that love truly conquers all?

Short Excerpt:

I was right to anticipate the nightmares. I wake up in the middle of the night. Luckily it’s before I get to the screaming part of my nightmare. I normally wake Angel and she comes to sit with me, holding my hand, or holding me if I can handle it, until I calm down enough to fall back asleep … or until I chase her back to bed when I realize I’m not going to be able to. Sometimes she makes me some warm milk or soothing tea. I wonder every now and then how she can still function on the little sleep she gets. I wake her at least three times a week.

At about two a.m., I give up and get up to watch crappy TV. My mind starts to wander and I go through the conversations and interactions I had with my family. I sometimes miss the natural openness we once had with each other.

I also admit to myself that I do look unhealthy. James is totally correct to worry about me, but the day I’ll destroy Tommy has been consuming me. I’m hoping my body will bounce back once it’s over, but I don’t hold out much hope.

Over the years, my family has figured out that I want revenge. To save me from being destroyed by my quest, they’ve often tried to steer me away from it. James has been more vocal about it than my parents, only because he missed a lot of the trial and details about what happened to me. I hate keeping secrets from him, but he just wouldn’t understand. They have no idea what I’m planning or the depth of my hatred. I want to save them from it.

It’s my darkness to carry.

The First Life of Amelia Weston



The First Life of Amelia Weston is the debut novel of Author Amy Olinger, and I am now an avid fan! I loved the lyrical quality of the novel from the start. Opening in the year of 1601 in Reading England, the  reader is introduced to Amelia, who’s a passionate, talented and powerful young woman. Tragedy and loss strikes her over the years as she grows into her power as one of the strongest witches in her community.

Soon years past with love gained and lost, and after being alone, Amelia meets Alexander who brings light and love back into her life, which she thought an impossibility. When faced with the possibility of losing her greatest love, fate intervenes and the two are reunited. But fate is fickle and the two are cast into a cyclical  race against time. The question remains will the lovers remain united or be separated forever?

I truly enjoyed this read and I felt the writing held a  haunting romantic quality which fit the time period in which Amelia lived. The descriptions and the steamy romance catapulted the reader into the character’s lives which caused me as a reader to become quickly invested!

Clear, flowing writing with great pacing. This was a wonderful debut novel that will leave the reader wanting more!

Recommended for readers  18+ due to some adult content, I consider this a must read for those that enjoy romance and historical fiction!
