About the Book 

Lost Love The Zankli Chronicles Book One The story sizzles as Zankli descendant and soldier of fortune, Andre Dunn and his Chosen, cosmetic heiress, Tyler Mueller find, loose, and regain love. Their passion for one another is ignited in a high-rise conference room, simmers in the African bush, and overcomes deceit, treachery, and betrayal in the corridors of corporate America. Their flight across continents exposes family secrets and uncovers a legacy of power gifted at the dawn of time

Wow!! Lost Love was a wonderful read. It started a little slow for me personally, but I got over that rather quickly. It was an amazing and powerful story. I absolutely believe in destiny, and this story is about destiny and prophecies fulfilled. The characters and most of the story are actually very believable, other than the paranormal references, lol. My heart broke quite a few times reading this book, poor Rachel and Tyler had it rough, I actually shed a few tears, but shhhh don't tell anyone, lol. And Mercedes, well what can I say about her, other than she is an evil woman, and her son is no better. There are so many great characters in this book, and Andre and Tyler are an amazing couple, I couldn't wait for them to finally get together.
   Lost Love is a great read, I highly recommend it!!

About the Author

MJ Duffy is a gifted author of paranormal romance.  She lives in Los Angeles surrounded by incredibly supportive family and friends.  After graduating from UCLA, she began working in marketing and spent many years as a career and personal growth coach.  Writing has always been a passion, and her most treasured moments are spinning tales of love, sexual fulfillment, and self-actualization.  

“I want to paint pictures on the walls
of the reader’s mind.”

I love to write and spin tales of lore and romance, and I have been doing so for years and years, usually at family gatherings.  However, at the urging of my sisters, I have decided to venture outside of that paradigm and publish the Zankli Chronicles, which has been a part of our family tradition for more than twenty years.  A mythical people of ancient lineage, the Zankli embolden all that is good and noble in humankind.

My earliest memories are of trying to read and failing dismally.  Dyslexia, characterized by a difficulty in understanding written language, was unknown and undiagnosed in the 1950s.  So, much of my childhood was spent hiding the fact that I could not read.  Letters just did not fall into place for me.  Ashamed, I was a child recluse, and I spent most of my time watching television.  By my teens, I was convinced that reading would always elude me – until halleluiah – at fourteen, I discovered Gone With The Wind.

I was enthralled by the book, by the magic of words and the vivid pictures they painted on the walls of my mind. From that day to this, I have had a love affair with storytelling and books. My dyslexia diminished.   I began to devour historical novels.  I traveled the world and grew fascinated with the history of other lands and people.  I began to develop my own stories, and I would share those stories at family gatherings where I would captivate my audience with tales of paranormal heroes and heroines.   Bigger than life, my men and women engaged and overcame obstacles through love and fearless courage.

The myth of the Zankli is completely fictional, yet I find myself feeling as if I know the character intimately, as if they live outside the pages of the manuscript.  This much I know is true.  There are many people who are cognized clairvoyants, gifted with second sight and extra-sensory perception; and native doctors are very much alive and prevalent in the African Bush.  There, they blend Christianity and tribal ethos to bring physical and spiritual wellness to their patients.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
