Revenge is a dish best served cold… while wearing heels.

April has just learned the real reason behind her boss’ impromptu dinner invitation. He only invited her to dinner with his colleagues to prove a point: that he can show up at an event with a plain Jane and still be considered ‘the man’. She expected better from him and had secretly hoped that one day their friendship would grow into something deeper. Now she knows she will always just be his ‘nerdy secretary’ to him.

But her two best friends won’t let her wallow in her pain. They convince her to give Dr. Stewart a dose of his own medicine. The plan: show up at the dinner looking irresistible and prove to her boss that even nerd girls can be sexy. But first, she has to replace her unattractive business suits with something sexier and more revealing. It’s time for a makeover.

Dr. Chad Stewart would never ‘really’ date his secretary. She was too good, too pure for someone as jaded as himself. It didn’t matter that he was half in love with her. But when he needed an ‘average date’ for a dinner party she was the first person he turned to. He thought his secretary was the perfect choice until he arrived to find her looking like his wildest fantasy. But now she knows the real reason for his invite and he can see in her eyes how hurt she is.

Can Chad convince her to forgive him for hurting her or will she walk out of his life… taking his heart with her?

What would you do if you discovered a dead body? Would you investigate? Try to solve the case before the police arrive?

Would you prattle on about theories regarding the murder, realizing you know almost too much about it? Would you put the handsome detective off balance so that he then accuses you of being the murderer? All before 9AM? No… surely no one would do that?

Clearly, you haven’t met Diana Hunter.

When embarking on an early morning run, Diana notices a man sitting on the ground. When she returns, she finds he hasn’t moved a muscle. She checks him over and discovers that he is stone cold. Once the emergency services arrive, including a very good-looking, but pompous detective, Peter Hopkinson, she has to continually prove why she is not the killer while trying to solve the murder herself.

Will Diana find the murderer before the detective does, or will they both discover that something a lot more sinister is going on at Royal Bay Beach?

Clean read: no graphic violence, sex, or strong language.

3 Reasons Why We Should Appreciate More Art

A Writer's Path

by Maja S. Todorovic

Art is like being able to project our most inner self, hidden parts of our mind and heart we might’ve forgotten that exist and they appear to remind us to feel again, to recognize our human and empathetic nature. Art doesn’t take sides – it’s a guidance to different perspectives and modalities of human existence and behavior.

When an interviewer asked Marina Abramovic: “How do you know you are artist?”, she said: “Art is like breathing, you simply have to do it, in order to feel and stay alive”. So, there is an ingrained need to create, to contribute to the world using your own tools, language and ways of expressions. That need is larger than the artist himself, larger than the need to get recognition or reward. That need translates an experience he’s propelled to share and as itself is sure enough reason for him to…

“HACKED”

Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Suspense/Romance/Anthology

Release Date: August 22, 2017

BOOK ONE:
Damon
When I accepted a deal from the government and joined a classified group of cybercrime experts named Foxtrot, I had to leave my old life behind. Including the woman of my dreams. Years later, when news spreads of a group of hackers infiltrating the CIA, the case falls in my lap. Lo and behold, who’s doing the hacking but my ex-girlfriend and the man I once thought was my best friend.

Nadia
Hacking gave me a comfortable, exciting life until Mom got sick. Moving home and paying her bills left me broke and desperate. Desperate people do things they know they shouldn’t. And now I can’t get out of it. When a stranger warns me to stop or else, I want to write it off until I find out just who did the warning. The only man I’ve ever loved. 

BOOK TWO:
Cassie
My job with Foxtrot is my lifeline. So what if I don’t like anybody else on the team? I didn’t join to make friends. When I get my first real case, the fact that personal contact with the client is forbidden sounds great to me. That’s before I start chatting with Harris — smart, funny Harris, who makes me reconsider the way I’ve shut myself off from the world. When things start heating up between us, I have a choice to make: keep away from him and follow the rules…or follow my heart. 

Harris
I was lucky to get a job with an international investment group after a run-in with the law years ago. When hackers compromise our network and cause a worldwide scandal, it’s all up to me to figure out who broke into the network. Pretty soon, I don’t know what I’m more interested in: the hackers who led to my life turning upside down, or the girl who was assigned to help me. The girl I can’t get out of my head no matter how hard I try. 

BOOK THREE:
Hawk
I’ve been watching her for so long, I feel like I know her personally. I know she thinks she’s a hotshot for heading up Foxtrot—and I know she’s heading for trouble. I wish she would listen.

I shouldn’t care. I should follow orders, the way I have my entire life, but something about her makes me think twice. Maybe it’s because I’ve never found evidence against her. Or maybe it’s the way her messages make me smile, make me think, keep me on my toes. Maybe it’s the way I spend too much time staring at her picture when I compose the warnings I send her way. It’s all going to come to a head soon. I wish I knew how to protect her when it does. 

Phoebe
When did everything become so complicated? Sure, working for Foxtrot was never ideal—I’ve lied to my fiancé more times than I can count—but I felt safe. I felt like I could build a decent life. Now, I don’t know who to trust or which set of lies to believe.

His name is Rafe, and he is everywhere Clarissa turns. At the university where she works. Her favorite sewing shop. The train station. Outside her apartment. His messages choke her voice mail; his gifts litter her mailbox. Since that one regrettable night, his obsession with her has grown, becoming more terrifying with each passing day. And as Rafe has made clear, he will never let her go.

Clarissa’s only escape from this harrowing nightmare is inside a courtroom—where she is a juror on a trial involving a victim whose experiences eerily parallel her own. There she finds some peace and even makes new friends, including an attractive widower named Robert, whose caring attentions make her feel desired and safe. But as a disturbingly violent crime unfolds in the courtroom, Clarissa realizes that to survive she must expose Rafe herself. Conceiving a plan, she begins collecting the evidence of Rafe’s madness to use against him—a record of terror that will force her to relive every excruciating moment she desperately wants to forget. Proof that will reveal the twisted, macabre fairy tale that Rafe has spun around them . . . with an ending more horrifying than her darkest fears.
