Traveling Heart by new author Sylvie Vaillancourt

Traveling Heart Cover

Amanda is a go-getter!  She’s smart and ambitious, but her naiveté and wealth attracts deceptive users into her circle.  She must be constantly vigilant to protect her family and friends and her most vulnerable heart.

Having developed a passion for traveling and photography from spending countless hours with her father while growing up, she uses her unique style of photography to establish a wildly successful career.  However, spending a great deal of time away from home prevents Amanda from developing strong, meaningful bonds in any of her relationships.

When Amanda meets Sally at her first photography exhibition, she desires much more than a one-night stand with this exquisite woman, but Sally struggles with the nature of Amanda’s job and her frequent absences.  

Their paths cross frequently, but Sally’s fears and doubts will sorely test Amanda’s willingness to be with her.  Will Amanda and Sally ever find their happily ever after?

A taste:

Amanda posed with clients and fans alike and answered questions while walking along the displays looking at her work.

Amanda stopped in front of a nude she had made of Roberta. It was a revealing pose except neither her face nor her hands were showing to divulge her identity. She was delighted when she noticed a red dot on its card. Amanda looked at it intently and remembered a time when Roberta had loved her very much.

Amanda realized there was a presence by her side. When she turned to look, the sinuous brunette was standing nearby holding a bottle of sparkling water for her.

“I guessed with all the talking, you must be thirsty.” She offered the beverage with a smile.

“I am. Thank you.” Amanda took the bottle then took a pull on the straw. It felt good, and she took a few seconds before she could express her full gratitude.

“My name is Sally Worthington. I’m a friend of the TV journalist that interviewed you over an hour ago. Thank you for sending the waiter my way with wine and appetizers. That was very thoughtful of you.”

“Don’t mention it. It was only natural that you should get something to drink and eat. I did not expect such a turnout. I saw you were interested in some of my prints. Would you like me to give you a tour?”

“Yes, please.” Sally looped her arm into Amanda’s and followed along as Amanda mentioned where she had taken the shots Sally seemed most attracted to.

Sally was easy to be with. She was very attentive and asked intelligent questions. She also looked comfortable with herself, and she had a pleasant disposition.

When Amanda mentioned where she took the shots and gave details, occasionally Sally would say she had vacationed there or somewhere nearby, so Amanda discovered she liked to travel. Amanda felt comfortable with her, and Sally seemed to reciprocate the feeling. Sally kept close to her, their hands touching, and often, she would loop her arm into Amanda’s.

Around eleven o’clock, Amanda thanked everyone as they were leaving. She went to the band and thanked them for the excellence of their musical selections, then thanked the serving staff from the catering company for their exceptional service for the evening. Amanda was starving, so she sat at the bar to eat a few appetizers.

Sally asked her, “Did you find time to eat anything during the evening?”
Amanda looked at her as she realized she had eaten only a few appetizers. “Jason, please make me a cosmopolitan. Also, make a martini with two olives for my guest.” Sally was pleasantly surprised that Amanda had noticed her drink of choice.

Shadoe Publishing is pleased to bring you Jerald Maynard’s first novel: IRRESISTIBLE IMPULSE

irresistable-impulse

When Mary Beth Kracko is found murdered in the enlisted housing area of Fort Kellog, Special Agent Barry Sheldon and Special Agent Robert Downs of the CID are put on the case. As the CID Agents investigate, they find there is a lot more to this than a simple homicide as they unravel a mystery where their own lives may be at stake.

In 1971, the United States Army Criminal Investigation Command was designated as a separate major Army Command-to avoid command influence and give the investigating agents more room to do their jobs.  These Agents are now only three phone calls from the Chief of Staff. Working with local commanders, the CID stands ready to solve crimes from the petty to the truly heinous.

As the killer watches Agents Sheldon and Downs investigate the murder, his curiosity and impulses are at war with each other.  Most people can control their urges, or impulses, but a certain few can’t do that.  They feel this compelling urge to do something and they do it.  The assailant had an impulse he couldn’t control and now there is a dead woman.  Is it the first, will it be the last, will he be able to control his irresistible impulses?

Veil of Silence Cover

Five years ago, Lieutenant Marsha Gagliano disappeared when her helicopter crashed in Afghanistan.  Her wife held out hope for her return, but with no word from the army after all that time, she begins to realize she may have to move on without her.

At the embassy in Kabul, a burqa-clad woman arrives at the gate with two young children in tow.  The black-haired, brown-eyed woman looks like an Afghan native, but her American accent belies this.  She identifies herself as Lieutenant Marsha Gagliano, all the while keeping a close eye out behind her as though at any moment, someone might jump out and snatch her back.

Questions arise regarding her disappearance and reappearance and the army is suspicious.  The children are obviously hers.  Has she consorted with the enemy?  How will her wife react to these children?  Will she be able to accept children she had no part in conceiving?

What is this woman hiding beneath her chador?  What secrets lie behind her veil of silence?
