Book Spotlight: Destination TBD by JB McGee and Nicole Andrews Moore

Destination To Be Determined
The Traveler Series
Book 1
J.B. McGee and Nicole Andrews Moore

Genre: Time Travel
Length: 25,000 words (novella)

About the Series:
Emmy London is a private investigator by choice and a time traveler by chance. Her super secret ability enables her to go back in time to solve mysteries, but not change the past. The one caveat is that she can't use it for personal gain; the one mystery she can't solve is that of her past.



Follow Emmy as she tests the limits of her curse, writes her own rules, and learns that 'not-a-dates' can become relationships she never wanted all the while drinking lots of coffee.



These sexy humorous mysteries can be read as standalone novellas even as the characters evolve.


About the Book:
Life has never been easy for Emmy London. Raised in foster homes, she learned to never get too comfortable, to never let anyone in. When her classmate, Chloe Oliver, disappeared at the tender age of five, so did she. From that moment on, life was never the same. She kept a secret and kept her distance from everyone.


With the twentieth anniversary of Chloe's disappearance looming, Mr. Oliver sought Emmy's assistance, asking her to revisit the past in order to give him the closure he so desperately needed. As a private investigator, she was accustomed to facing unpleasant situations and sifting through others' lives. Unfortunately, this time to do that, she had to face her own.


Soon, she herself is being followed. A handsome stranger insinuates himself in her life. Everything she believed and thought she knew is called into question beginning with…can she turn her curse into a gift?


Her mission is clear, her destination is to be determined.

About the Author:
Jessa Russo believes in fairytales, ghosts, and Jake Ryan. She insists mimosas were created for Sundays, and that’s not up for discussion.  She’s obsessed with the great city of New Orleans—where she’s collected too many beads to count, eventually married her sweetheart, and visited graveyards they don’t include on maps.

She’s loud, painfully honest, and passionate about living life to the fullest, because she’s seen how abruptly it can be taken away.

What began as a desire for reading and writing young adult paranormal has bled into stories of all kinds. From fantasy to pre-dystopian to erotic contemporary, Jessa’s stories always include romance, though she’s given up on pigeonholing her work into a category or genre box.

Jessa was born and raised in Southern California, and remains there to this day with her husband (a classic car fanatic), their daughter (a Tim Burton superfan), and a Great Dane who thinks he’s the same size as his Chihuahua sister.
ENTWINED, the final installment of Russo’s Ever Trilogy, will be released later this year, as well as an erotic romance written under the pseudonym Parker Jameson, so please stay tuned!

PRFL would like to extend a very warm welcome to Peiri Ann, author of Burdened ~

The story behind the story
In life, we all are bombarded with choices. At times, the wrong choice can be the right one and vice versa. But what happens when the right choice is right, but the following choices and decision made – based upon that choice are wrong. Consider these following choices.
·         Do you regret the original choice?
·         Thought it felt right and originally brought you happiness.
·         Or, do you live with the unfortunate burdens brought upon you based off of the choice you made.
·         Or… do you leave, walk out and turn your back on the new life you’ve designed for yourself – based upon that choice.

The key to survival and success is based on the roads we choose to travel down AND the person we choose to travel down them with.
But what happens when you are offered to choose? Red Pill or Blue Pill
The Red Pill – You walk away forgetting the choice was offered; you live a happy life, no burdened, no unexpected deaths, no detrimental tragedies, and things appear as they should…Good. But… the devoid of not being with him practically kills you.
The Blue Pill – You choose a life with the person exclusively designed for you. Dedicated, unconditional, because you heart beats for the two of you they keep you closer then themselves type of love. But… there is death, betrayal, lies, pain, change, destruction, and controllable burdens.
Most, when brought the choice, choose love in hopes love will conquer all; the most evil, the worse magic, the worse hate, and the most deadly. That is until they find in love lies death.
In Burdened, a paranormal romance, Tracey is brought the choice to be with a burdened Sephlem whose life, one would try to avoid. But in the deepest temptation of love and an expression of happiness, she chooses to be with him – Nathan – and endure the burdens in his life. And those burdens happen to come from the people they least expect.

(In case you were wondering. There are no pills – blue or red – in Burdened)

Thank you so much for joining us today, Peiri. We really enjoyed the visit. Good luck and great sales with Burdened

About the Author:

A love for reading transpired into an admiration for writing at a young age for Peiri Ann. Starting off in writing poetry and short stories she indulged in the possibilities of creating new worlds and lives to live within them opening a window of unanticipated possibilities. In high school a pin and notebook never left her grasps and in college the pin was replaced by a keyboard and the notebook replaced by a computer screen. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and certified in business management.

When Peiri Ann is not writing, reading, doing homework, or working in the downtown of Chicago she enjoys spending time with her little girl, watching action flicks, and spooning peanut butter from the jar as a midnight snack.
