FREE ROMANTIC SUSPENSE!
by Lori Soard
The dark parking garage with the dead body of his friend and mentor only begins Jake Walker’s problems. Soon, he is the prime suspect in Benjamin Monroe’s murder and worried that his best friend, Ben’s daughter, will believe the worst.
Celeste doesn’t know who killed her father but she does know one thing—it wasn’t Jake. As she and Jake set out to find the killer, they discover that her father unlocked the code to a fountain of youth formula. Anyone who wanted the formula could have killed him, and it was worth millions.
During their investigation, they uncover more facts and more bodies. Because they show up at every crime scene, the detectives investigating the case suspect Celeste and Jake of murder. The two go on the run until they can clear their names. But, there are more sinister forces at work than either realizes, and the deception runs as deep as the national government…
FREE SHORT STORY
by Lori Soard
A heartwarming short story about the power of lasting love. A golden years romance tale of love that lasts forever.
“An incredibly beautiful story in such a few pages. I cried through the whole story. The story especially touched me because my late husband had Alzheimer’s.” – Lillian Ammann (5 stars)
“A sweet romance reminiscent of The Notebook without all the back story. Lori Soard gave us the important part – the eternal love between a man and wife. I have to wonder if Lori is feeling us out before taking this to a larger format. While I enjoyed this read, I hope there are more like this to come.” – Angela (5 stars)
About Cupid’s Quest
Cupid’s Quest is the first in my Cupid’s Crossing series. It is an inspirational romantic comedy and starts with the story of Gracie, who runs a small nursing home in town that is about to go under.
Romance stories are in my blood. I read my first romance novel at the age of nine and simply absorbed them since them. Needless to say, while the story centers around the romance between Gracie and Brandt, the heart of this story is in the nursing home residents. They are wise, cranky, funny, and just know how to live life in a way that only those who have spent many years testing out different adventures can live.
This is the story of my heart and I hope it will become the story of your heart as well. I am currently working on Book # 2 in this series, which will be called Change of Heart.
If you get a chance to read this book, I’d love to hear your thoughts or have you review it. I hope you enjoy this story and these characters.
