They say a soul is the immaterial essence, the animating principle, the actuating cause of an individual life.

But what if you had to share yours with the one person you hated the most?

The soul mate principle states that for every one soul there is another that will recognize its match, hence creating the perfect union.

But what if you had two soul mates, which would you choose?

What if your choices had eternal ramification?

Deceived, the debut novel in the Soul Keeper Series, is a modern day love story about the implications of having more than one soul mate, and having to choose between the two of them. The decisions of the gods has left the next generation, their heirs, torn between fate and reality, and the balance of the future hangs in anticipation of what's to come.


L.A. Starkey is my newest editing client. She’s recently released the first two books in her Soul Keepers Trilogy. I don’t review books I edit (since it seems like a conflict of interest), but I DO want to let all of my readers know about these awesome books and give you a chance to win them.

Also, check out L.A. Starkey’s top ten things she’s addicted to!

And Check Out Book #2!




10 Things I’m Addicted to!

1. Hubby. The thing that I am most addicted to is definitely, by far my husband. He’s ridiculously good looking, athletic, sensitive, loving, serving and puts up with me in ways no man should ever have to. He encourages me and let’s me dream BIG all the time, quick to follow me anywhere and fast to remind me that I’m beautiful and loved. He’s addictive in a million ways and I could list his name on all ten of these things, but that would make even me gag! 🙂


2. Coffee. I love coffee so crazy much that I’ve figured out lately how to have one cup of regular in the morning and then a few cups of 1/2 caf during the day and decaf at night. This schedule takes effort, but man is it worth it. I LOVE coffee, but not black. I need my International Delights Hazelnut creamer to go with it – like having a dessert. Starbucks is good and Seattle’s Best is alright, but the things I can do with my Kurig? Lord have mercy.


3. PJ’s. If I’m at home, I’m in my pjs. If you stop by on my day off, I’m in my pjs. If it’s 3 in the afternoon, 10 in the morning or midnight and I’m at my house – you got it, in my pjs. Nothing says comfort and relaxation like getting into your pajamas as if you plan on staying awhile – a long while.


4. My Computer. I love to write and surf certain parts of the web. If I’m free I’ll usually be typing away on some new projects, chatting with friends or tweeting until I have nothing more to say, which takes a looooooooooooong time.


5. Books. I love a physical book way more than I like my Nook. Don’t get me wrong. The Nook is convenient, but I sure do love holding a book in my hand, putting notes in it or re-reading it and seeing the pages are worn from me reading it before. Nothing like snuggling down in the covers with a good – hold it in your hands – book!


6. Pizza. If I were on death row and they took an order for my last meal, it would be pizza and Mt. Dew for sure. I love pizza, the woodfired kind, but being in Texas that’s a little more rare than one might expect. With that being the case, I’ll take a thin crust supreme (no onions or peppers) from Pizza hut. LOVE IT. *is hungry now*


7. Vavoom Mousse. For some reason, this isn’t popular anymore (whathappenedtothe90’s?) My hair is kinky curly and I have to either put in mousse made from tire tar or use Vavoom. My sweet hubby (see addiction 1) has searched the city of Houston for this and finds it here and there, but mostly turns up empty. I walked into Ulta the other day and WHAT? It was there on the front display. I bought 10 of them and the girl looked at me like, “Who uses $150 of mousse?” Um me… I’m addicted.


8. Husband.


9. Hot guy I married.


10. Boy of my dreams that wears my ring.


I’m only addicted to 7 things, so why not give the boy more props? 😛

    • I know – her husband must be a saint! I laughed when I saw the PJs thing too because I’m always sitting around in mine – my daughter and I would both live in our PJs if we could!

    • I know – love triangles can definitely be hit or miss. Starkey does a great job with hers, but I know that some people just can’t handle them. 🙂
