BOOK BLAST: Charity's Warrior (Maya James)


Charity Powers is a young, intelligent woman that has left
behind her predictable small town life, and even more predictable lover, to
gamble on a fresh start in New York. She arrives with no leads or friends, just
an armful of optimism and determination. When an attack at a local bar, a
possible kidnapping attempt on her, is thwarted by a stranger, her life takes
on an unforeseen turn.

Gorgeous and overly experienced Justin Collins saves Charity
from her attacker, and continues to save her in many other ways. "He's
just the right mix of gentleman and caveman,” is how she describes him.  He gives her exactly what she wants, and
almost everything she needs, but his damaged past makes it impossible for him
to commit.

At a new job, she falls into an online relationship with JP,
the company’s owner.  She hasn’t seen
him, but he fills the gaps of Justin’s absences and feeds a fire Justin left

The return of her ex-lover exposes the dangerous secrets
around her—one of these men has the power and connections to keep her safe at
any cost, and the endless love for her to use this power or give it up to keep

Justin has his arm
around me, lightly playing with the hair behind my ear as we watched the
streetlights come to life, quivering over the water's surface. The gondolier is
actually humming a song now, but I think it is more to occupy himself than us.
Our conversation drops off comfortably, and we enjoy the cool night. I take the
opportunity and begin kissing the side of his face, following his strongjawline.

"If I told you
that I'm falling in love with you, would you believe it?" Justin asks me suddenly.

My heart is instantly
pounding, and much too loudly to deny it. I'm sure it's sending ripples out on
the water as it shakes the boat. "Yes," I answer through the huge
lump of emotion in my throat.

though it would be a lie?" he adds softly.

"A lie?" I
repeat painfully, insulted and devastated.

"I couldn't fall
for you anymore. The truth is I've already fallen. I've even tried to get back
up only to have you sweep the feet from under me again. I'm breaking the
biggest promise I've ever made to myself, Charity." He turns to me,placing a hand on my cheek. "Despite all my efforts, I am hopelessly and
endlessly in love with you. I don't want to know another day without you, I
couldn't survive it."

He is looking at me
for a response through two very vulnerable eyes. There is no catching my
breath, or my heart. They are galloping around the lake like wild horses,
without any reigns to control them by. I am lost in the dust of their hooves,
unable to breathe, to form words and utter a cohesive sentence in reply.

Author Bio:

Indie Author with my first Romance novel, Charity's Warrior,
and now the second in the series, Charity’s Secrets, publishing on Amazon
Kindle, Creatspace, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. 

I'm very passionate about writing stories full of love, lust, eroticism, and
strong characters entwined around each other in an interesting, suspenseful

East coast born and raised, I'm married, extremely happily, with 4 kids, 3 of
which are now young adults (not sure when that happened).

I’m a COO in my technology-based "day job,” which requires a mix of
technical and creative writing for both internal and client-facing materials,
but it was not satisfying my artistic spirit. Writing the “Charity” series has
been absolutely fulfilling and exciting.

My favorite writing takes place on my phone while lying on the Southernmost
Beach in Key West, where I try to go at least twice a year.

Fun Facts:

The outline and first two drafts of Charity’s Warrior were
completely written on a Droid phone.

With a full time day job, it took 5 months to complete the
first draft of Charity’s Warrior.

I worked on the first draft of Charity’s Warrior during a
fall visit to Key West, and was working on the second draft during a spring visit
to Key West.

The original cover for Charity’s Warrior was a picture of my
Beagles’ collar lying on my bed sheet.
