Juanita Aydlette was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. What started out as a

childhood obsession with magical creatures in storybooks, became a passion in later years. She creats such magic in her first novel It’s in the Blood, which was a Top Ten finisher in the 2016 Preditors & Editors readers Poll in the “Young Adult Novel” category. Juanita challenges her imagination to bring readers into her world of romance, suspense and fear of the unknown. Her upcoming novel Blood Ties continues this paranormal romance series.

 



Excerpt from It’s in the Blood:

 

Away from the open menagerie was a path surrounded by dense trees. It was across a narrow decorative bridge built into the landscape. The thick greenery provided a shady side to the open garden. After only a few yards inside the cover of the trees, my body was seized by a rumble and a frightening snarl. A chill blanketed me and I couldn’t move. I didn’t dare look around, for the back of my blouse had already been saturated by the heated moisture from the breath of the beast. My first instinct was to scream, but fear had stolen my voice. So I took a deep breath and held it. The scent of horror filled my lungs. It was familiar. Was I being stalked by the animal that lurked outside my hotel grounds?
 
Help me please, rang inside my head. My eyes squeezed shut as its sharp fangs pinched my shoulder. Tears filled my eyes and my hands formed a fist. I waited to feel my bones snap when suddenly, it let go. The leaves crunched. The sound grew fainter by the second, then nothing. My eyes remained closed as I trembled and listened.
“Miss? Are you okay?” A woman’s voice severed my nightmare. 
Without hesitation I ran past her, clutching my throat and sobbing. The other tourists were boarding the van and I made my way to the back.
When the bus stopped, I ran from the tourist center to the hotel. Once inside the bathroom, I stripped and examined my shoulder. A painful bruise was both in front and in back. I cried out loud, shook convulsively, and then laughed hysterically. Was I going mad?

Linda J. Burson is an author from Connecticut. After years of writing and editing for others, Linda decided to tackle her first romantic suspense novel entitled Rage, which began as a single book, eventually became a trilogy, and finally a series. There are currently six novels in the Marcy series. Linda’s novel Rage placed in the Top Ten in “Best Thrillers” in 2016, and in 2016, she was in the Top Ten in Preditors and Editors Readers Poll in the “Best Author”  category. Her novel The Agreement was also in the Top Ten under “Best Thrillers.”

 






Excerpt from Rage:

 

The tears are pouring down my cheeks. I can’t believe this. This man was in love with me from the moment he saw me, and he knew nothing about me.

I understand it because I seemed to feel a sense about him from the beginning. I let him in my home late at night, a perfect stranger, but I felt it was all right. It’s like my soul was speaking to me as well. Maybe I’m as crazy as he is.

What I don’t understand is if we were meant to be together, why did I meet Brad? Why am I in love with two men? I’m so confused. No wonder he doesn’t mind coming here and staying. This place is his sanctuary. It’s our place…a place where no one can take me away from him.

Jack Frost is a Louisiana native now living in Lincoln, NE.  After 40 years in media news, starting out in radio, and ending as a news director in television, Jack retired in 2002, but continues as a spokesman for senior citizens in a once a week interview broadcast on KOLN/KGIN-TV in Lincoln. Jack writes political thrillers set in Louisiana. Class Act Books has published three of his Jake Coleman novels, Dead Man’s Hand, Cold Deck, and Stacked Deck.

 








Excerpt from Dead Man’s Hand:

 
The General took a deep breath and launched into what would direct my life for many years to come.
“The sheriff came to see me yesterday. They’re still looking into the accident that took the life of that unfortunate girl. He wants to know who was driving the car and whether the driver had been drinking.”

I stared at the General in astonishment.

“Cornelius says he doesn’t remember anything about that night,” he added before I could speak. “I’m wondering if you may have been behind the wheel. They found another tux coat near the wreckage, all torn up and a whiskey bottle crushed in the pocket. They think that coat was yours. The sheriff wants to charge you with vehicular homicide.”
My skin went cold. My mind was in turmoil trying to absorb what the General had said.
 “Sir,” I finally was able to speak. “It was Trey who was driving. He’d been drinking. I hadn’t.”
“Now, Jake. Let’s be reasonable. You know Cornelius would own up to this if he had been driving. But that night is a blank to him. Cornelius just got notified he has been chosen as a candidate to West Point. I know we can come to some sort of agreement here.”
 
He got to the real reason he was there.
 
“I can make the charges go away that the district attorney wants to file against you. And I can make sure you and your mother never have to worry about anything as long as you
live.”
The General spelled out specifics of his proposal without actually admitting anything incriminating about his son’s involvement. It was a well thought out plan.
I was stunned, but I was thinking. He had achieved his purpose. I had a bleak future except for what the General had offered. Over Mother’s protests, I agreed to his terms.
With a half million dollars deposited in my mother’s name, I went to court the next month and pleaded no contest to vehicular homicide. My probation was contingent upon me joining a branch of military service. The General wanted me out of sight…and out of mind.
