THE BLIND SHOT BY J.L. CAMPBELL

When all else fails, love will find a way.


Kofi Danquah has travelled halfway around the globe for fifteen years, satisfying his need for advancement and adventure. In that time, he has never met another woman as intriguing as Regina Chu. She's a chameleon—a wild child with issues she hides behind a playful persona.

In Gina's eyes, Kofi is a mystery—exotic, intense and secretive. His sober nature balances her bubbly personality and unconventional approach to life. Plus, he's appealing enough to make her forget they're from separate worlds.

Time spent together changes Kofi and Gina's platonic relationship into an attraction that burns hot despite their cultural differences and the disapproval of their families. But fairy tales don't always last and true love needs fertile soil in which to bloom.

After dumping her cheating ex, Corra Bingham goes on vacation to take her mind off the double whammy of her cheating ex and overbearing father. But things turn complicated when she nearly loses her life to a ruthless and persistent stalker.

She's clueless as to why anyone would choose her for blood sport, but isn't happy when Phillip Denham appoints himself as her protector. He's everything she doesn't want in a man—good-looking, frugal with the truth, and a law-enforcement officer. Try as she might, she cannot make him go away.

On a previous visit to the exotic island of Xantrope, Phillip Denham discovers that he has a twin. His life is a complex web of lies and he wants answers. Intrigued by the missing pieces of his past, Phillip returns to the island to trace his roots.

While there, he encounters Corra and someone who is intent on putting her six feet under. She's a fascinating woman, but her relentless enemy makes him wonder what she's involved in. Using his skills as a detective, he races to find answers that will prevent Corra from ending up on a slab in the morgue.

Author Confession - Prime Children

Thursday, July 4, 2019


Truth is stranger than fiction and sometimes readers don’t get that. The other day one person had a problem with a seven year old in one of my stories. The person thought she was too ‘prime’ for her age. I know better going on my experiences with my son, who has an old soul, and some of the kids I’ve been privileged to observe.

At the job site, the place is overrun with kids at a summer camp. On my visit to the ladies’ room today, I heard one little girl saying she needed privacy (at the top of her voice) because she was changing into her swim suit. After exiting the stall, I asked the counsellor the age of the girls. She said six. When I told her why I asked, she chuckled.

Yes, the kids today are not slouches and I’ve always believed that how they develop depends on the way we treat them. So, yes, the youngsters in my books may seem wiser than their years but I’ve learned that many of them are much more forthright than I was at their age. 

With a bit of encouragement to talk, they amaze me with all the stuff they know. As I’ve told my son on many occasions, “You’re so much brighter than I was at your age.”

He doesn’t believe me, but his grades tell the tale.

New Release - Forever Mine

Sunday, April 14, 2019

#NewRelease #InterracialRomance #KindleUnlimited
lrd.to/ForeverMine

On Friday, I released Forever Mine, which was part of a boxed set in 2018. Basically, I've taken the book apart and put it back together.

It is my hope that you enjoy Scott & Shevaughn's story. Here's a snippet:

I buried my nose in Scott’s neck and inhaled his scent. His skin gave off that same earthy combination of vanilla, leather, and musk that had grown familiar in the past few weeks. My lips connected with his chin in a sloppy smooch.

He turned his head and claimed my mouth in a heady kiss. Our close contact reminded me of all I'd been without since he left the island on Friday evening. Under the fluorescent light outside the airport, I cupped his cheeks while smiling into his eyes.

Scott stroked my jaw with his thumb and cradled my head. His other hand pressed me to him in a tight hug. “D'you know how much I missed you?” he mumbled into my hair.

“Maybe as much as I missed you?”

We grinned at each other, while I thought this scene was crazy. Butterflies swirled in my stomach and heat raced over my back, where Scott's hands rested. I wasn’t given to public displays of affection, but with Scott everything normal had flown out the window. The persons coming out of the arrival lounge flowed around us, seeking taxis or those who had come to transport them.

“Let's go,” I said, “before people think we've lost our minds.”

“Nah,” he said, swinging his case into the trunk of the Honda.

“They'll guess we want to be together, more than anything else.”

His words triggered a tiny alarm in my mind, but I was so exhilarated with having him back, my blood flooded my veins in a heady rush. I felt as though Christmas had come early. What made my reaction so out of character was that we'd spoken every day since he left.

Yesterday, we talked late into the night. He'd shared stories about the mischief he and Rhys got into as boys and how he ended up in the hospital with a broken arm after a skateboard stunt.

When he called me at lunchtime to say he'd finished the seminar early and was coming back this evening, I didn't ask him for a reason. I simply agreed to pick him up from the airport. After we ended the call, I arranged for Mom to collect Angel from school and stay at my place until I got home.

On the ride toward Scott's place, I told him Angel had sent greetings, and we discussed how the seminar went. In twenty minutes, we were at his townhouse. He got the travel case out of the car while I opened the door with the key he'd put in my hand.

The Heart of Things ...

Monday, March 18, 2019

The newest kid on the block for me is The Heart of Things, book 2 in the In Medias Res series. So, here’s how the story goes …

After a year-long Jamaica-Miami romance, Douglas Blythe succeeds in putting a ring on Khalila Skyers’s finger. Though gun-shy, Khalila is willing to marry Douglas, under one condition. She wants a baby.

Doug can’t go back on his promise to give her anything she wants but sees trouble on the horizon with two teenage girls, a hectic business schedule, a devious ex-wife, plus a household turned upside down by a baby he doesn’t want.

Their commitment to each other is unquestionable, but will this couple’s differences bind them together…or force them apart?

Douglas and Khalila have had their ups and downs, but I hope I've managed to bring their story to a satisfactory close. Love at a certain age, previous losses, and blended families are a challenging mix.

I hope readers will find The Heart of Things worth the wait.

Book Review: Eshe by J.D. Mason

Saturday, February 23, 2019

If I say Eshe is a mess at the start of her book and for a fair portion of it, you’ll think I’m unkind. But, she does have issues which she’s been fighting all her life. That doesn’t mean she’s not courageous and smart. She doesn’t fit anywhere and nothing is as it seems. Eshe gradually grows into who she is, although she kicks and screams all the way there.

Fantasy is not my favorite genre, but this book had me wrapped up from start to finish. The characters are multi-faceted and fascinating. Andwele is an alpha hero through and through. He’s been chosen for an integral role in Eshe’s life and despite his lack of enthusiasm at the start, he takes to the task with gusto … too much at times. His sometimes clueless approach makes him likable and he doesn’t back away from life-threatening situations.

He’s the right man for the job, though, given his shady reputation and skill sets. J.D. Mason did a great job with his character, moving him from a selfish, snarky individual, to one who recognizes and embraces his role as hero.

Andwele and Eshe’s connection, when it eventually happens, is satisfactory and this reader was happy and relieved. If you like tales of high adventure with demigods and shifters, you’ll enjoy Eshe.
