The last thing she imagines after accepting that first date with Carson would actually be the beginning of her worst nightmare.

Red roses, a reminder of her parents’ killer, soon become an emblem of horror for Cami as one by one, those closest to her fall victim to a serial killer. Cami becomes an obsession for Carson, the man she had finally allowed herself to love. Not only is he vying for her heart, but also her life.

Challenging Miss Valentine



Ella Valentine doubts she’ll ever recover when her twin brother passes away in college. Four years later, living in a new city and working for a large corporation, she gets caught in a lie and saddled with a new boss who she suspects might be losing his mind. Now he has her enacting insane acts of espionage while trying to catch the culprit who has embezzled money from their company. If it wasn’t for his deep brown eyes and lazy smile she just might quit. Is this God’s plan for her life? She isn’t even sure who she is anymore without her twin and the way things are going she just might end up in the loony bin.

Charles “Charlie” Murray II may be the heir presumptive to his father’s industrial dynasty, but all he really wants is to create–be it drawings or a marketing campaign. When he’s summoned to the home office to take over the position of CFO, he discovers his new assistant is the same woman who passed him a phony phone number in a diner the previous weekend. If he can figure out who’s been stealing from the company, he just might attain the position of his dreams or will he sacrifice it all to be with Ella.

Welcome, Mary Cope!

Many times I’ve been asked these questions: When did you first start writing? What inspired you to write? At what point, did you consider yourself to be a bonafide writer? Every author has a story about their journey, and Mary Cope’s journey is a hilariously honest one. She didn’t start out with the intention of becoming a writer at all. Writing just sort of found her along the way, and now she’s hooked. To all you avid readers out there, have you ever considered there might be a story inside of you, too? With that thought in mind, enjoy this week’s feature. Cheerio, –Jo Grafford, Highlighted Author Co-Hostess

Mary’s Writing Journey

0437fccfcac10a8ae018c5.L._V349839339_SX200_I didn’t grow up having this dream of being a writer. To be honest, my writing journey came out of boredom. My husband,Tony, was on location for work. Our son, Christopher, was away at college and our daughter, Sarah, was busy with her life. So, I began to write.

What I quickly discovered was that I absolutely loved writing. Creating characters, giving them heart, and making them come alive fed into my creative side. I found myself getting lost in my story as these characters became real to me. I never imagined my first writing attempt would get me to where I am now, the published author of “Beautiful One.” My heart is truly humbled.
