Thankful Author - Barbara Edwards


What am I Thankful for?
Charlie, the newest member to our family was born. An adorable boy.
How can you beat that? I’m also so thankful that my family has had a good year. The kids have good grades. Everyone has a safe home, health and work. 
We are so blessed. Thank You, God for every blessing



Blurb:

In Ancient Awakening, Police Officer 'Mel' Petersen investigates a death only she believes is murder. By disobeying direct orders from the Rhodes End Chief, she risks her career to follow clues that twist in circles to her backyard and lead the killer to her.

Her neighbor Stephen Zoriak is a prime suspect. Steve worked for a major pharmaceutical company where he discovered a weapon so dangerous he destroys the research. He is exposed to the dangerous organism. He suspects he is the killer and agrees to help her find the truth.
In the course of their investigation Mel and Steve find the real killer and a love that defies death.


Excerpt:
“Dont threaten me, Steve. Youre...”
He pulled her into his arms despite the alarm bells clanging in his head.
Danger! Danger! Danger!
Her widened eyes met his. Mels hands were trapped against his chest, but she didnt push him away. Instead, her fingers curled into his shirt.
Her mistake. His mistake was to crush her mouth under his.
Mels soft lips parted. Need exploded. The taste of black coffee didnt hide her sweet flavor. As her tongue tangled with his, her arms slid around his neck and her fingers burrowed through his hair.
Steve hungered to peel the starched shirt off her soft shoulders, lay her on the thick turf and ease his desire. He tasted her brows, her cheek, along her throat, seeking the source of her call. Her pulse whipped under his mouth, awakening another need.
His teeth gently closed on the vulnerable vein. He wanted, wanted, wanted...
Cold alarm chilled his pounding blood.
Steve gasped for air. Hed forgotten his own
ironclad rule. Mels eyelids flittered open to reveal the molten glow of desire, but he forced himself free.
He had no right to touch any woman. Not until he knew he hadnt become what he had set out to destroy.
“I warned you. Im not interested in doing a cop,” he growled before he stalked away.

Blurb:

Lily Alban escapes her murderous stalker after his vicious attack leaves her with the ability to see auras. She finds safety in the tiny hamlet of Rhodes End where a stranger stands out like a red light. Only he’s right behind her. Denying her growing desire, she turns to Cole Benedict for help but discovers the man she loves is not a man at all.
Werewolf Cole Benedict resists his attraction to Lily. He’s a botanist researching the healing herbs for a cure for Lycanthropy. He’s determined to protect Lily from her stalker as well as himself when in human form, but instinct takes over when he changes.
They must use their extraordinary gifts to catch Lily’s stalker before he can kill her, but revealing their secrets can destroy their growing love or save them both.

Excerpt:

Lily sighed. “Since this happened,” she ran a finger along the scar on her nape. “I’ve seen lights, haloes, auras, whatever they’re called. They reflect whatever emotions the person is feeling. My doctors said I was crazy and I had to lie to them, convince them it had been temporary. Only the effect never faded. Since I’ve moved to Rhodes End it intensified.”
She closed her mouth tightly as his golden eyes narrowed. “And?”
Irritated by his quiet response, she pushed her hair out of her face. “I can read yours. Sometimes. Mostly when you’re a wolf.”
“What does it look like?” He looked interested as one of his dark brows quirked upward.
“A spinning kaleidoscope, so beautiful it takes my breath away,” she whispered.
He pulled to the side of the road, leaned across the seat, and cupped her chin in one hand. “You do love me.”
