New Release Spotlight!

Showcasing new books by my sister (and brother) scribes is always a joy for me. Today I'm happy to feature Stolen By a Savage by Theresa Hodge.


Theresa is a native of Alabama. She is a loving mother, wife, sister, aunt and friend. She is at her best when she is able to bring happiness to others. She loves to read almost as much as she loves to write fictional stories. She has found writing to be therapeutic, especially during the loss of her oldest sister from breast cancer, a period that birthed her first book series, Ask Me Again.


Theresa has gone on to write several more books and collaborations. She is busy writing new stories regularly, so be sure to check her site regularly for new releases. Theresa also has a love affair with writing poetry. She first started writing poetry at an early age and it has been a part of her growth with writing ever since. If Theresa can bring a smile to your face and encourage along her journey, she considers it a blessing beyond measure. She can be found on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.


Blurb:  Kohara… It doesn’t matter how good of a person I try to be. Pain and betrayal has a way of ripping my happiness from under me. The one person that I think will protect me and love me until we grow old has proven to me that happiness has a way of turning into heartache. Then, I met him. The one man who can possibly make me forget and change my life as I know it…forever. 

Dante… 

She is gorgeous, warm and sweet. The first time that I laid eyes on her, I could see pain in her eyes. A force drew me to her. A force that I can’t and don’t want to fight. She is forbidden but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to get to know more about her. It doesn’t stop me from wanting to steal her love for my own. 

Excerpt: “My private life is no longer your concern, Gary. It’s all your fault that we are in this predicament. I will not allow you to talk to me like that any longer. If you can’t respect that, then we no longer have anything to say to each other,” she spat out and turned to walk away from me but I grabbed her arm and forced her to look at me. 

“What happened to the sweet innocent girl that I married? What happened to the vows that you spoke to me on our wedding day? You promised me for better or for worse until death do us part,” I queried her as I tried to bring our wedding day back to the forefront of her mind. 

“I’m a woman, Gary.” She jerked her arm from me and stared me down with fire in her eyes. “I am not some little girl that you can manipulate. I put up with your foolishness for as long as I possibly could. People get tired, Gary. And I am the same woman that you married. I’m just a little older and a lot wiser,” she replied. 

“Do you remember our wedding day, baby?” I didn’t respond to what she just said but I would beseech her to remember the happy memories that we had shared together. “You were the most beautiful bride that ever walked the face of this earth to me. You looked like a true princess as I waited for you in my tux and bow tie at the altar for you on our wedding day. I was finally going to get the woman of my dreams and you and I as a couple were going to live out our happily ever after. You made me the happiest man on earth when the words I do slipped past your lips. Please tell me that you haven’t forgotten,” I pleaded with her as I gripped her smaller hands in my own. She tried to tug her hands away from mine but I wouldn’t let them go this time. Just like I couldn’t let her walk out on our marriage as easily as she wanted me to. 

“I remember, Gary,” Kohara answered in a soft teary voice. Tears formed in her beautiful eyes and escaped down her cheeks. I released one of her hands so that I could brush her tears away.
