When three children grow up together in the rolling hills of Kentucky horse country,
One becomes a predator
One becomes a protector
And one becomes prey.
Ginger McHuid has been in love with the “Dub Twins” – Cain Wolfram and Josiah Woodman – for as long as she can remember. And for as long as the cousins can remember, they’ve each loved Ginger in their own all-consuming ways.
One will win her
One will be cast away
While one follows her heart.

Ok I have to say when I first started reading this I was frustrated. The book was being told from 3 different points of view. Cain and Josiah. Two cousins who are closer then brothers and spend every second together and their best friend Ginger. These three have known each other since they are very young and are more like family. The beginning of the book is a fast paced look at their younger years but each scene is told from each of their points of view. I was annoyed at first, having to re-read the scenes 3 times but as the book progressed I realized how poignant it really was. It made sense to know how these 3 felt at times and it was these times that shaped their future.
This is a story of a love triangle but not your typical love triangle. These 3 would give their lives to not hurt each other but in the process of doing that they only end up destroying each other…repeatedly. It follows their lives and how their friendships turn to love, to hate, to forgiveness, to loss…it just had it all. It warmed the depths of my heart and made me sad and cry at times. The love these 3 share is deep and never ending and I was turning the pages to see what happened next.
Will their friendships survive love? Who will Ginger pick? Who will never get over the loss of not being the one she chose? Is their a happy ending for them all? Did she make the right choice? These are some of the questions I found myself asking throughout the book and by the end I am happy to say after an emotional journey they are all answered. Great book with a fast paced love story with a little drama, angst and forgiveness thrown in.

“With Southern charm and a deeply romantic plot, readers will fall in love with this modern day fairy tale.” –RT BOOK REVIEWS
In this modern-retelling of “Beauty and the Beast,” Savannah Carmichael, betrayed by an unreliable source, returns to her hometown of Danvers, Virginia with her once-promising journalism career in ruins. Given the opportunity to get back in the game by writing a patriotic human interest piece, Savannah turns her attention to the town hermit, Asher Lee, a wounded veteran who returned to Danvers eight years ago, and hasn’t been seen since.
After an IED explosion in Afghanistan took Asher’s hand and disfigured half of his face, he’s lived a quiet life on the outskirts of Danvers where the locals respect his privacy…that is, until Savannah Carmichael comes calling in a borrowed sundress with a plate of homemade brownies. When Asher agrees to be interviewed by Savannah, he starts feeling things for the beautiful reporter that he hasn’t felt in years.
Misfits in small-town Danvers, Savannah and Asher create a bond right away, touching each other’s hearts in ways neither thought possible. When a terrible mistake threatens to drive them apart, they’ll have to decide if the love they found in one another’s arms is strong enough to fight for their hard-won happily ever after.
The Vixen and the Vet is a standalone novel inspired by Beauty & the Beast. Contemporary Romance: Due to profanity, realistically depicted scenes of war and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Never Let You Go
A Modern Fairytale
In this modern retelling of Hansel and Gretel, 13-year-old foster children, Holden and Griselda, escape from their abductor after three years of brutal captivity and try to cross the Shenandoah River on foot. Tragically, one of them makes it to safety but the other is left behind.
Ten years later, Griselda’s boyfriend drags her to a fight club grudge match where her world is turned upside down when she watches Holden step into the ring.
Though the connection between them is fierce, bitter regret, simmering rage and a cache of physical and emotional scars lie between them, just as dangerous as the whitewater of the Shenandoah.
Never Let You Go is a story of fear and hope, defeat and survival, and two people – once profoundly broken – who discover that love is the only thing that can make them whole again.
