I’ve got one priority–and one priority only,
My daughter.
All else can get in line.
Sure, football pays the bills,
But my heart and life belong to her.

After my wife died, I vowed to be everything to Scarlet.
But I can’t do it alone.
Nobody can.
I never thought that when I looked for help,
Searched for a nanny,
That I’d find so much more.

She’s nothing I thought I’d ever want,
Tattooed, pierced, artistic, and carefree,
But Tea’s all that I want,
And everything Scarlet needs.

But when someone decides I can’t have her,
I find myself fighting for everything,
For my daughter,
For Tea,
And forever.

Stupidparty MathGet it on Amazon!

???It is possibly the funnest book with an agenda ever published.??? (Breeni Books)

The use of comics at the beginning of the chapters had me chuckling and anticipating what I would read in the following chapter instead of just flipping through page after page of words, words, and more words. (Teresa, reviewer)

StupidParty: Math vs Myth is a sometimes comical look at the current state of the Grand Old Party and how their Tea Party conservatives are missing the truth behind the numbers. The book should be required reading for Republicans and Democrats alike. Common sense and attention to reality seem to be the only way to reverse course on the gridlock and progress in Washington today. (Brian, reviewer)

It is brimming over with cartoons, photographs, graphs, maps, data comparisons and quotes that serve to crystallize the author’s points. He is careful to document everything in the book with readily accessible source information that is easily clickable. (Grady, reviewer)

I consider myself a moderate Republican and could relate easily with many of the conclusions presented by Andendall. Common sense and shared power in American politics is necessary for maintain our values and standards of living. An insightful look that every citizen should review to keep themselves informed and making better choices of how we???re governed. (Karma, reviewer)

Historical romance: Lone Star Loving

PASSION TEMPTED HER

Charity McLoughlin had gotten herself into another mess. Her wealthy family had disowned her, her purse was empty — and worst of all, she’d been tricked into smuggling Texas silver into Mexico. Now the law was after her. She wasn’t sure whether being abducted by a ruggedly handsome stranger who called himself Hawk meant her fortunes were looking up or down. The one thing she didn’t doubt was the fiery attraction she felt for this hard-muscled man. Perhaps she wouldn’t try to get away just yet. Instead, maybe for just one night, she would surrender to the raging desires that his slightest touch stirred in her…

DESIRE ENSLAVED HIM

David Fierce Hawk had decided long ago that he’d take one of the McLoughlin daughters as his wife because of the kindness and beauty he’d seen in their mother. But he wasn’t sure he wanted this daughter — Charity, the blue-eyed hellcat he’d agreed to bring back to the family fold. She was certainly in a good deal of trouble. And Hawk had been betrayed by those he’d tried to help before, including his Osage Indian tribesmen. But for now, he was willing to forget the future. He was alone with Charity under the starry Texas skies, and his lustful thoughts could not be denied. He’d not pass up this chance to twine his hands through her glorious sable locks, and sample the lush pleasures that this wild and lovely woman offered….

Another Masterful Short Story!

The Ugly DucklingGet it on Amazon!

Lady Augusta Stone dangled her legs over the edge of a cliff overlooking the North Sea as the waves crashed into the jagged rocks below.

She ran her hand down the scar that reached from the corner of her left eye almost to her chin. She touched her nose, which was ajar to the right.

Constant reminders, those blemishes, of the day she stood up on the piano bench and tried to leap, like children do. But she slipped and fell. And when she landed on the marble floor, the impact broke her nose and cracked open her face. She was five years old.

And now she was 29 and unmarried, the poster girl for unattractive women who no one wants to love. Years of depression, brought on by the pressures on women because they are judged based on their appearance, had driven her to the cliff. Hardly the stuff of a regency romance.

But Augusta???s brother rescued her that day, and it was a turning point in her life.

The ugly duckling met a man who thought she was a beautiful swan.

They fell in love.

But in typical regency romance fashion, her problems were far from over. Her father, the Duke of Daubeny, said he would not let Augusta marry someone who had no title and little income. Her suitor, the Duke said, could not provide her a life of comfort and ease, and the family???s reputation would be ruined. When Augusta objected, the Duke said he would take her out of his will if she married this ???second-class citizen.???

What to do?

???I have a plan,??? Augusta told her true love.
