Thankful Author 2019- N Christine Samuelson

We all are probably most thankful for our family, friends, good health, good fortune in all the ways they appear in our lives. But there are so many people in this tumultuous world today who’ve lost families, friends, homes, jobs to so many natural disasters, racism, killings & war. I am thankful my world has not been touched directly by devastation & loss in these ways. I pray for the peace & prosperity we enjoy in this country to spread around the world to all peoples.

I am thankful to live in this great country and pray for restoration of her leadership on the world stage for prosperity, empathy, aid, saving of the planet for future generations; and for the continued & growing grace, humanity, peace, compassion, and generosity of all her hard-working, proud citizens.

I’m so grateful for life itself, for all the blessings, challenges & opportunities that have made me & my life what it is today, including the gift of writing & publishing to share my words & ideas with readers. And I thank the network of wonderful fellow authors whose generous help and connections have inspired and taught me. Huge thanks to all of you for contributing to mine, and others, successes! 


Three people’s lives collide in a perfect storm of heartbreak and ruin, betrayal and love. One woman and two men are drawn to coastal South Carolina to an oceanfront Victorian B & B inn. With losses from lies, secrets, cheating spouses, racism, divorce and abandonment, the last thing all three characters want is love or relationship. However, as they move into and through the emotional storm of their lives, destiny brings them together in an extraordinary way. But will they be destroyed or transformed by their fates?
      An enchanting seaside inn with mystical elements inspires the characters’ lives and helps them on their journeys. Their passionate triangle must be broken for them to move on, but who ends up with whom, or do they, and when?


It had been a very long time since Gabriel shared details of his life with anyone, let alone a woman. But it felt right with Jade. Even more so, as thunder shook the heavens outside and lightning blazed over the ocean, Gabe felt his insides rattle, his dark places illuminate, and his soul churning until his secrets strained to be let out to someone he could trust.
Now the devil’s and the angel’s voices on both shoulders rang out in unison, each trying to drown the other out. But Gabe heard them equally. The angel’s voice urged him to be genuine, caring and honest—because with telling the truth he’d never be sorry. The devil’s voice told him to lie to look good, then seduce and lust after her, then let her go and if he didn’t, he’d be sorry. But with the devil’s words came the glare of lightning and thunder growled over the bar shaking Gabe to his core.
Rain poured down in sheets and Gabe knew he didn’t want his life to be an eternal storm, forever threatened with disaster. He wanted his life to be the way he felt inside this room—safe and warm with a beautiful, caring woman to share it with. It was time to listen to the good angel, and so the story of Gabriel Montoro poured out of him as profusely as the rain from above.
