“Breathless Nights” by Archer Atwood
Calling all Romantics!
In the Year of the Comet 2247
Ann is a romantic and loves spending her free time deep in books that spin tales of happily ever after. She keeps her life simple, never taking risks, and that is what she had planned for her vacation at the beach with her two best friends. Her goal was to relax with her toes in the sand and re-read her favorite books and if she is lucky, and wished hard enough, possibly catch a glimpse of her favorite author. Being a Monroe, nothing goes as planned and risk found her! Not only was she getting intrigued by a mysterious local guy, she was about to ride out the incoming hurricane with strangers.
Casey had worked hard to fashion a very private life. No one in this seaside town knew where he came from or that he had been a bounty hunter of evil men and slayer of evil spirits. He was content to just go about his business unnoticed. That was working out well until a certain sweet lady came to town and kept stumbling into his path. She was very different from the other women he knew and decided to try and steer clear of her. Leather and lace do not mix well.
Keep your beach chair out and your suntan lotion lathered, Ann’s story is about to heat up! Prepare to dive into the perfect summer romance, or read this sizzling story to warm you up on a chilly winter night.
“Breathless Nights” is all about that magical getting to know you phase of a new relationship. When you find yourself attracted to someone without understanding why. How much do you want to share about your personal life with this person? Can you trust them with those parts that make you, you and risk they won’t hurt you or humiliate you? That’s a struggle we all go through when we dare to let someone into our heart.
Oh, and to complicate that budding romance, let’s toss in an impending hurricane, something the author has experienced more than once, and the other worldly beings that love to cause mischief.
Content includes diverse people, sexy action, and delicious seafood.
This book is available on Amazon.

A scrumptiously sexy tale!
In the Years of the Comet 2222-2244:
Bold, brash, and sexy is how Jesse Monroe moves through life. Born unique inside and out, Jesse’s youth in a small town was traumatic and one can only handle having their spirit and heart broken so many times. When able, Jesse rushed to move to Boston and start over, living a carefree single life utilizing the luck of good looks and charm. Unfortunately, Jesse is a Monroe and nothing comes easy for them.
The days of playing around are about to be clipped by family desperately needing help, stirrings of abilities attached to an inherited trait, and a certain clever “witch” trying to tame the naughty beast. Will Jesse ignore all of that in order to protect a new life away from past pain and former identity? Or will love of family and a need to find love and be loved bring Jesse back home?

Jolene felt like she should sue the fertility clinic she used because her daughter did not resemble the donor profile she chose, and from the moment she was born she was different from other children. She knew private things about people and said she could read other people’s dreams. Her disturbing behavior caused them to move often and at her wit’s end, Jolene lands at Miss Moon’s library.

Against her better judgment Jolene does and ends up pulled into a world of secret surprises. Best you keep your nightlight on!
Scary: “Harvest Grove”
“Save the girl!” Turmoil has swirled around Casey’s head since childhood. It would bubble over in hints from stories written, or from sketches of images dreamed. What was being suppressed so strongly? This last sketch of the little girl in a puritan like outfit haunted Casey day and night. Those dark eyes had to hold the key. But who could help solve this puzzle? Miss Moon of the Willow Library could, but instead, she sends Casey over an old New England covered bridge on All Hallow’s Eve, when the spirits are thought to come out and play. Will this help unlock the mystery for Casey and unleash a power that lays latent, or cause insanity? Keep your flashlight handy, and your Jack-O-Lantern lit as you dive into this fast-paced gender bending paranormal tale. Anything can happen on Halloween!
Sexy: “Ceremony of the Rose”

This woman hints about a ceremony that fuels Claire’s imagination and creates an obsession. An obsession to find the meaning of the Ceremony of the Rose. Did the ritual really happen? Or was it a folktale passed on by the lonely and frustrated women of Tucker’s Glen? What Claire uncovers is mystery and romance under the spring full moon.

Atwood..what is with the Comet Years??
Welcome to the Willow’s Moon Song world! All stories in the series are interconnected but at different times in the characters lives. I consider the overall timeline similar to a ribbon that has been tossed to the floor. A ribbon of time that folds and bends and lays over itself. One book your favorite character may be young, the next time ten years older. One book a character may be the star of the story, the next, they may only be walking through it in the background. Pay close attention to the “Comet Years” that are connected to Miss Moon, to clue you in where that book sits on the timeline.
Here is a list of books in the series so far and their Comet Years;
2230 : Harvest Grove
2232 : Ceremony of the Rose, Oak Ridge Shadows
2234 : Rose House
2243 : Sleep Medicine
2244 : Jesse Monroe and Company
2247 : Breathless Nights
2248 : Moonlit Meadow
2249 : Winter and Spring
