The Vengeful Thief (Stolen Hearts) Book Review



Peter Slade never thought he'd be coming home. But after his family is put in danger because of his past misdeeds, he has to reconcile with the son he abandoned years ago . But his son has been in good hands. Liv Morgan has never been the nurturing type, but when hard times forced her to move in with her best friend and her orphaned nephew, she found herself being the adoptive mother to a troublemaker with a heart of gold. Liv has no idea what trouble really is. When Slade rolls back in town and is ready to reconcile with his son, Liv finds herself walking the thin line between the estranged father and son. And as she's more and more drawn to Slade, she realizes that if things go wrong, it will be more than just her heart breaking. But Slade came back for a reason. His family is in danger. Liv might think that keeping him away will protect her heart, but he wants her body safe too and to do that, he's going to have to stay close. Liv is about to learn that revenge has never been this sexy...

Sue's Review - 
 I was asked to read "The Vengeful Thief (Stolen Hearts #5) and I LOVED LOVED LOVED it!!! BUT -- Now I have to go back and read the 1st 4 books of the series - but, if they are anything like this one, that will not be a problem.

**This can be read as a standalone** but when they are this good, why would you want to?

Slade's sister Melissa and her friend Olivia (Liv) are taking care of raising Josh - Slade's deceased wife and his son. When Slade finds out that someone tried to kidnap his 10 year old son -- he heads back to his hometown to make sure his son and his sister are OK. I'm not going to tell you anymore about what happens, because it is always better to not write spoilers and to let you experience the story for yourself. And, believe me, it is well worth reading!!!

The Simple Soul of Susan Book Review

“Simple is as simple loves.”
Susan Combs had long ago found the love of her life. The only problem was the other party still didn’t know he had been found. 
Every day Susan saw Calder Hurtz, her next door neighbor and childhood best friend. They always enjoyed the short drive to school down the dusty streets of their small Texas town. She was happy in those perfect moments, for her life at home was most imperfect. The challenging homestead she inhabited was also the favorite subject of local gossip.
But one autumn day she overhears two boys having a conversation. This occasion of accidental audience sets Susan’s life on an unforeseen path. In the seasons to come, her future will be changed by two hospitalizations, two confessions of love, and one betrayal.
Compulsively readable, The Simple Soul of Susan is an engaging, soul-endearing romance and a mesmerizing debut.

Buy on Amazon

Sue's Review 
WOW - another new author for me (Noel Branham) and OMG was I impressed with his writing.

In the small town of Walnut Springs, Texas, Susan Combs is seventeen, a senior in high school, and lives with her uncle who is confined to a wheelchair.  Susan (with the help of her neighbors - the Hurtz family) takes care of her uncle.  Susan is close friends with Calder Hurtz - who is also a senior in high school.  They attend the same school in Walnut Springs ISD.  The story covers things that happen during the senior year - and the relationship between Susan and Calder.  I don't write spoilers -- but OMG, this is an amazing story!!!  It is definitely one of those books that you will find hard to put down until you read the last page!!!

Born and raised in a small Texas town, Noel Branham started her career
in digital communications after graduating with a degree in English. An
award winning communicator, she now writes from her home in Florida about
things closest to the heart: home, family, and love. Her debut novel will
be published Fall 2017.

The Workings of Energy in the Human Energy Field




 
 The happenings in your life are not erratic, whimsical occurrences. They are external expressions of the content of your energy field. Before there is matter, there is energy. Your thoughts, beliefs, history and soul attributes exist as energy in your energy field. They create the reality that you know. When you change the content of your energy field, you change your life. 



The Workings of Energy shows you how energy operates in your energy field and offers tools to successfully work with energy. When you have this crucial knowledge, you have power; you can consciously work with energy to create your life.

Behind the Mask
For Emma Rochester, hookups in bars were less than fulfilling. Oh, the guys she picked up in bars were great for sex, but that’s all it was—sex. Normal, boring, every day sex. Emma wanted more than the normal vanilla ice cream served in careful scoops. She wanted rocky road mixed with turtle mixed with Neapolitan.
