Runaway

Runaway by Cheryl Terra.jpg

The story of a girl from a small town on a cross-country journey and the man making sure she doesn't end up dead in a ditch somewhere.

 

"Guess I'm going to Vancouver now."

"What? Why?"

"'Cause if I don't, you're gonna get yourself in trouble. Then I'm gonna have to hear some sad news story about a pretty small-town girl named Lacey Stephens who ended up dead in a ditch somewhere."

From a nameless small town in Manitoba to the Rocky Mountains, Montreal, and all manner of stops in between, Lacey Stephens is on a search to find her brother ten years after her religious father kicks him out of their house. Naive and scared, but determined to break free, Lacey contends with her family, her surroundings, and feelings she didn't know were possible.

Part coming-of-age story, part love letter to Canada, part romance, Runaway follows the twists and turns of Lacey's journey, with plenty of steamy stops along the way.

Noah Reiman is in love. He has been from the moment he met Lacey, and every action he's taken since then has been because he loves her. Now he just needs to find the right time to tell her.

Finding Home

Finding Home by Cheryl Terra.jpg

The road to happily ever after isn't easy for Lacey and Noah in this sequel to "Runaway."

 

A week was all it took to change Lacey and Noah's lives forever. One day he was saving her from being drugged; a few days later, he was taking her virginity, and a few days after that, they were running away together... again.

As Lacey's family heals after their escape from a manipulative abuser, things seem to be getting better. That is, of course, until an unexpected return of the last person Noah ever expected to see. On top of learning how to live a settled-down life after all their time on the road, they both need to face a future that's uncertain and discover how to grow up.

Devil Made Me.jpg

When good things happen to Sean Lemieux, he knows something is about to go horribly, horribly wrong.

It's what he's come to expect. Five years after being kicked out at seventeen by his religious zealot of a father, he's learned to protect himself by keeping his hopes, fears, and secrets heavily guarded. Sure, he might not exactly be happy... but he's safe.

That is, until the day Rick McDougall walks into the firm Sean works at. The tall, immaculately good-looking redhead is the personal assistant of Sean's newest client: a world famous musician who's a little too busy to attend appointments himself. Even Sean can't deny the chemistry between the two of them. 

But Rick is the definition of "too much of a good thing." Just as Sean starts letting his guard down, everything comes crashing down at once.

 

After discovering the baggage of his past and uncertainty of his future, will Rick be just another person who lets Sean down? Or is the tall redhead with startling blue eyes be the angel Sean needs to save him?

The Masks We Wear

THE MASKS WE WEAR.jpg

When you fall for someone online, are you falling for the image they project or the person behind the façade?

 

Craig keeps to himself, but an incident with a bully in the library leads to someone taking a stand on his behalf. Frustrated at first by the pretty girl who posts a video mocking the bully, Craig slowly gets to know her and finds they have far more in common than he'd thought.

There's only one problem: despite seeing her on video, he has no idea who she is, and neither does anybody else.

This is the first collaboration written by Jason Caldwell and Cheryl Terra.

As You Wish

"I don't have time for sad stories, Dad," he would say. "So don't start telling me this story unless it has a happy ending."


Being a single dad isn't easy.

It's even harder when your son is diagnosed with cancer.

Jeremy's sole focus in life is his son, Ethan. He barely has time to work, let alone time for love or friendship. Already struggling to make ends meet, Jeremy is doing everything he can to make his Ethan's life a little bit easier. When Ethan's cancer treatments stretch on, Jeremy wants to do something special for his son... but he knows he's going to need help to do it. 

Enter Noreen Willow, the wish granter who specializes in making dreams come true for children with serious illnesses... and who's so burnt out, she's handed in her two weeks' notice. Resigned to taking on one final client, she commits to going through the motions to help a single dad and his son. She's expecting an easy-to-grant, straightforward wish.

She's not expecting to confront the trauma from her past or finding a spark that makes it impossible for her to walk away.

Surrounded by hardship, tragedy, and grief, can Noreen and Jeremy find what they need when it comes time to start again?

 

This single dad romance is a story of love, loss, and hope. Featuring a sensitive, blue-collar single dad and a strong female lead with a traumatic past, As You Wish shares a look into the reality of childhood illnesses and shows that even tragedy can't stop a happily ever after.
