Haunting Love by KA Moll

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear an excerpt from the audiobook for Haunting Love by KA Moll narrated by Emily Beresford

 

Synopsis 

Anna Crestwood was raised with the strict beliefs of a religious sect nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. She's a lesbian with a ton of baggage - fearful, guilty, and alone. Very few things would compel her to leave the familiar. The job offer of a lifetime is one of them. Against her better judgment, she packs up and moves to Illinois. Unfortunately she's not there long before she's convinced that the devil is hunting her down.

Gabe Garst is a police officer. She's also a powerful medium. Her work with juvenile delinquents and ghosts is all that keeps her going. Inside she's dead, certain that her capacity to love is buried six feet under. Talking with and seeing the dead has always come easily, and yet for some reason she's not able to communicate with her late wife. She's grieving, depressed, and alone. Suicide seems like the best option. It's just a matter of time.

Anna's and Gabe's paths cross. Their attraction is immediate, but they hold back until all hope seems lost. As good battles evil, two tortured souls must engage in a struggle to overcome demons of their own.

Coming To Terms by KA Moll

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear the an excerpt from the audiobook for Coming To Terms by KA Moll narrated by Emily Beresford

Synopsis 

Coming to Terms is a love story - and so much more. It's a story of the impact of sexual abuse and addiction. It's a story of the hunt for a serial rapist turned murderer. Mainly though, it's a story of Sawyer's journey to forgive - another and herself.

Sawyer James is a cop. It's who she is and all she ever wanted to be. The job is all she has. Sawyer's alone, not necessarily because she wants to be, but because horrors in her past have left her drifting in seething waters. To move forward into a fulfilling relationship, Sawyer must come to terms.

Sage Carson is a clinical social worker. She's divorced and alone. Alone is definitely preferable to being married. At almost 40, she comes to realize that her marital problems weren't due to a lack of sexual desire, but rather, her lack of sexual desire for a man. Sage's attraction to Sawyer is an awakening. To move forward, to not spend her life alone, Sage must come to terms - with her own sexuality and with Sawyer.

In their struggle - to love - to forgive - to survive - Sage and Sawyer risk everything.

But is everything enough?

Whispers Of The Heart by KA Moll

Book Clips 

Welcome to Book Clips, the mini podcast where authors and narrators give you a taste of a book with a short snippet. 

In this episode we hear the first chapter of the audiobook for Whispers Of The Heart by KA Moll narrated by Emily Beresford.

 

Synopsis 

Days after completing her fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology, 35-year-old Aki Williams travels from her home in Los Angeles to a small town in Illinois, interviewing for a job that she doesn't want. What she does want is to meet her biological sister, Jack Camdon, a sister whom she didn't know existed until she dreamt of her. Upon their meeting, many things surprise her - that Jack's a lesbian with a wife and children, that she's a dreamer who dreams in spirit animals, and that she's a medicine woman, deeply rooted in the Ojibwe culture.

Three years ago on Sunday, 43-year-old professor of archaeology Carsyn Lyndon lost her parents and her wife in a tragic accident. Since then, she's suffered from PTSD and loneliness. She's kind-hearted and handsome but dates no one. When she meets Aki at her four-year-old godson's birthday party, they're incredibly attracted to one another, and those feelings intensify during a family camping trip - a particularly interesting development for Aki, since prior to that, she'd never considered that she might be a lesbian.

As Aki comes to terms with her sexuality, Carsyn renews a vow to not make the same mistake twice - a mistake that had devastating consequences. With seemingly no middle ground, an accident will bring them together, forcing them to re-examine their priorities. But will love, even love at first sight, be enough for them to move forward as a couple?
