Captured Lies

 Captured Lies

By Maggie Thom

Publication Date- October 17th, 2012

She was kidnapped not once but twice and now someone wants her dead because of it....
Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn’t normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator is to be believed, her life is a lie. Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past, to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother’s past but that of a family claiming she is theirs.
Everyone seems to have a story... but who’s telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets, dating back over thirty years.

Author Bio:
Although I have always enjoyed writing, the dream to become a writer came when I read A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, in the sixth grade. My early works, not published, were in the form of children’s stories I would read to my two daughters. I divide my days between the real world and the ones I’ve created. My life and my characters keep me very busy in my Mid-Western scene, where I live with my husband, and my children (both human and furry).

Anna and Jaxson
The bed screeched along the floor as she followed his lead, as her tired and sweaty body crumpled onto the bed. Her head rolled to the side as she looked at him. She noticed his body fashioned as much sweat as hers. His eyes were closed and he rested his hands on his chest as he tried to catch his breath.

Holy cow that was the best sex I have ever had!

His whispered voice sounded next to her.

“How was that?”

“It was OK.”

Actually, that was great, but let’s not feed his ego too much.

She almost laughed at the questioning and confused expression that crossed his face.

“OK? I made you scream more than once, I recall.”

“Yeah, I was faking it for your sake. I didn’t want to hurt your feelings.”

“Oh, really?”


“Huh, it didn’t feel faked to me. Your screams of pleasure were pretty convincing. I think you are lying.”

Chills ran throughout her frame as he gently ran his fingers up and down her leg. She concentrated on keeping her breathing even. She rolled her eyes his direction and placed a coy smile on her face. 

“Guess you will be left with that burning question.”

“And what question would that be?”

“Was I genuine, or did I fake it?”

It was so damn good my cravings just may change. Whew, my heart is pounding.

“Guess there is only one way to find out. We will just have to do it again. Only this time, see if you can keep from screaming out my name.”

“Funny, I don’t remember screaming out Jaxson. Perhaps you were hearing things.”

“Oh no? Well, you will this time around.”

Excerpt 2
Anna and Sebastian
To add to her annoyance, Sebastian’s voice rang from behind her.  What now? I just ate. Can’t he let my food settle first?

“Is there anything else you want?”

“Yes.” She popped her head over the couch. “For you to leave me alone. Isn’t it enough you stole my life and possibly my sanity? Must you steal my patience, too?”

“I told you I’m sorry for that, but you have to deal with this, Anna. It isn’t going away.”

She sprang from the couch and stalked him around the living room. Hands waving and voice high, she let him have it.

“Fine! Is this what you want, for me to deal with it? How about this? I hope you rot in Hell for what you have done to me. I have no freaking idea what it is I am going to do now. I can’t ever go back to my home, my friends, my family, or my life. All thanks to you and your uncontrollable urges, as if that is an excuse!”

Inches from his face, she poked her finger in his chest. The more she talked, the louder she got. Her body trembled with rage and her heart pounded with hate.

“I may forgive you one day for this, but I will never forget, and I shall hate you forever. As long as you pull air through those dead lungs of yours, I will not make anything easy for you. You took it upon yourself to screw with my life, now I will screw with yours, and you will sit back and take all I dish out, because you owe me for a lifetime. A lifetime full of happiness, family, friends and memories I will never have. A life I dreamed of, not this nightmare you pulled me into.”

S.E. Hall

Publication Date- May 20, 2013
New Adult Romance

No sooner than Laney Walker and her long-time best friend Evan Allen finally delve into romantic feelings for each other, college sends them packing, miles apart. Never the social butterfly, Laney is slow to adjust to life with a new softball team, crazy roommate and co-ed dorm. Without the support system of her Dad and her Evan, she's left to cope with diving into the real world on her own.

Just when she thinks nothing could tear her apart from her old life any further, she meets the mysterious, debonair Dane Kendrick and her heart is left divided.

The familiar love she shares with Evan has always been easy and sweet, but she can't help wondering what would happen if she let go and took a leap of faith into what she never knew she wanted? A jump that Dane seems more than happy to help her through.


About the Author-
S.E.Hall resides in Arkansas with her husband of 17 years and 3 beautiful daughters. When not in the stands watching her ladies play softball, she enjoys reading YA and NA romance.

It didn’t take long to find Mr. Allen. Turns out the Allen family had recently moved in right down the street. Dad wanted to let the man know that he thought what his son had done was noble and sure hoped Evan wasn’t in any trouble. Confirming he wasn’t, it’d only seemed right to invite the boy fishing with us.
At least, that’s how Dad explains it to me. It doesn’t stop me from pouting the whole ride to the pond and trying to ignore the intruder in the back seat with me.
Thanks for inviting me, Mr. Walker. I love fishing.” Sure he does; what a butt kisser.
My pleasure, Evan, we’re happy to have ya’ along. Aren’t we, Laney? “
Of course, Daddy.” I smile sweetly before continuing. “Say, Evan, you know how to bait your own hook, right?” What? I’m genuinely concerned. I don’t want to end up doing everything for the kid.
Evan just looks at me from the corner of his eye, not answering.
Dad, did you bring him a life jacket? We wouldn’t want him to fall in and drown if he hooks a big one.”
Dad doesn’t answer me, either. They both look uncomfortable; I’m not the least bit perturbed. There’s more where that came from, boys! I can do this all day and it’s well-deserved, as far as I’m concerned. How dare Dad invite this boy into our time together? My time with Dad is sacred. We don’t need company.
Hey, Evan…” I drawl, kicking the smartass act up a notch as we climb out of the truck and grab our gear, “don’t get used to this. One rescue, one trip. Got it?”
Dad acts like he doesn’t hear me and walks ahead to the water. He thinks his new little hero can hold his own with me. We’ll see.
Rescue, huh? That’s what you think that was?”
So… Evan can answer. “Whatever, you know what I mean. I don’t care what anyone thinks of me. My dad and I are just fine without them. I don’t need new friends any more than I needed saving. I can take care of myself just fine.”
Oh, I could see that, tiger. That’s not why I did it.”
Tiger? Could he not remember my name? Typical boy. “Why did you then?”
He thinks for a minute, kicking the dirt with his toe, and then shrugs. “I’ll let you know as soon as I figure it out.”
I never heard what he came up with. Turns out, we had plenty of other things to talk about.

Anna Cruise

Publication Date- May 21, 2013
Published By- Mission Bay Publishing
New Adult


Kellen Handler is in deep.

Ever since he can remember, he’s wanted to be a professional surfer. And he made it, rising to the top of the ranks, traveling the world and riding every break he’s ever dreamed of. His good looks and reputation for living on the edge—both in and out of the water—have made him an international superstar. But when his best friend dies in a tragic accident, Kellen wipes out big time, spiraling so badly that everything he’s worked for starts to disintegrate.

Tour officials scramble to do damage control and demand he work with a public relations company to clean up his bad boy image. It doesn't help that the person assigned to him, Gina Bellori, has her own demons associated with the surfing world.

Against her better judgement Gina accepts the job and concentrates on repairing Kellen's tattered reputation, despite his protests and despite the pain it causes her. With her past colliding with her present—and Kellen in the thick of it—she begins to realize that some secrets can't stay hidden.

And suddenly, Kellen Handler is no longer worried about losing his career.

He's more worried about losing his heart.
