About the Author

Linda Luchtman is a debut author from the Netherlands. During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, which was a hard time for many people emotionally and mentally, the story of Sitou was born, but the author put it aside to write "The Bum Biter," a sweet little book for toddlers that was only released in her private circle in the Netherlands but will be available on Amazon later this year.

It wasn't until her daughter, Lara, struggled with anxiety in 2023 that the author revisited the story of Sitou. She knew it was the perfect way to help her daughter, and it did just that. Now, Linda is on a mission to share the story to help kids and adolescents with their emotional well-being. Next to this, she has made several assignments to go along with Sitou's story to help readers connect Sitou's journey to their lives. This makes it a more interactive and meaningful experience.

Linda is not only an expert in writing. She is also an expert in instructional design and using neuroscience to create effective classrooms. She has a Master's degree in this field and has helped many teachers and trainers in universities, vocational training, and businesses. She is a certified coach and is currently seeing her first coaching clients.

Cover Reveal and Preorder: The Desk from Hoboken by ML Condike

 

 


The Desk from Hoboken by ML Condike

Mystery

Date to be Published: March 5, 2024

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

In a bid to heal from the grief of a personal loss, forensic genealogist, RaeJean Hunter, takes on a straightforward case —identify human remains found on a nearby college campus, believed to be the 180-year-old remains of Mary Rogers, a woman who died mysteriously in 1841 and was believed to have been buried in the nearby cemetery that had washed away. It should be simple enough, a project to get her back in the game.

Unfortunately, it quickly becomes anything but. In fact, it becomes downright dangerous.

Someone doesn't want RaeJean to investigate the puzzling death of the woman whose death inspired Edgar Allan Poe's "The Mystery of Marie Roget." As she follows clues through four states and discovers living family members who both help and hinder her search, she quickly realizes that the secrets of Mary Rogers' demise were never meant to be exposed.

What lengths will someone go to keep the truth buried in the past? As threats escalate and RaeJean and her family's lives become endangered, she's forced to follow every lead and use every skill she has to find the answers she needs before it's too late. Using DNA from two famous New England families, historical data, modern genealogical techniques, and a little guidance from a seemingly mystical antique desk, RaeJean takes on the cold case despite being given every reason to abandon it.

After all, what truths have been hidden for 180 years that would be worth bribery, kidnapping, and even murder?

RaeJean Hunter is about to find out.

Blurb:

He was a single dad.
He didn’t have time for love.

When Rome Hutchins found out he had a son, his life changed for the better.
His kid was great.
His heart, though, was not. It had been trampled, kicked around, and shredded just for good measure. Obviously, after all that, he wasn’t looking for love.
But then…came Maddie.
She was his brother’s assistant and an integral part of his brother’s company—it would be bad business to start something with her.
Only, she was smart and funny and capable and…his heart didn’t feel like it was in pieces when he was with her.
It felt whole.
It felt…like it had always been hers.

Excerpt:


Quinn

The arm wrapped around my waist from the night before hugs me tighter. Based on his morning wood digging into my lower back, I could be a very satisfied woman. I look over my shoulder to see Cam smiling in his sleep. His hand moves to caress my breast and plays with my nipple. The wetness between my legs is instant. His hips move against my back, and I wait to see where this goes.

A hum leaves my throat as his one eye cracks open. I turn away to face the window, praying he won’t throw a fit. Too late.

“What the holy hell are you doing? You’re completely naked.” He moves to the other side of the bed, putting the bedding between us. “Did I just…?”

“Yes, you played with the girls, and I loved every minute.”

He lays his head back on the pillow. “I thought we had an agreement.”

“No. You had an agreement with yourself. I agreed to pursue what is between us, at least sexually.”

“Thank God I have on briefs.”

“Nice package, by the way.”

He throws his arm over his eyes. “Will you please go put some clothes on?”

“You take the fun out of everything. I’ll meet you downstairs in a couple of minutes. I have some built-up sexual energy I need to work off.”

“This cannot be happening,” he mutters.
