The Locket Book Cover

 

Samantha learned at an early age that life isn’t always fair. When her mother re-marries and she acquires an older brother that takes advantage of her innocence. She learns that there is more to family than words and actions.

Oliver used to be a carefree boy until a horrifying incident takes his family away. He has learned one important lesson at his young age, ‘Protect those you care about’.

When he sees a scared little Samantha, Oliver’s heart was drawn to her, to help and protect her. Even though he’s several years older, he made that promise to himself to watch over her, and she never knowing he was always there. He was her Protector. But he was keeping a secret from her.

When Oliver’s identity is revealed, Samantha, feeling betrayed and deceived goes into hiding, running away from the man she has loved most of her life.

Oliver has to find her before Samantha’s past catches up with her. Will she be able to survive or will her past take her away forever leaving Oliver, a shell of a man?

Shelly

Growing up in a small country town SM Stryker escaped from her home after years of abuse at as soon as she turned 18, running from a taboo life into another tragic situation as she tried to find her place in the world.

She believed that things happen for a reason and knew that one day she would understand why. She finally found her solace when she found her husband and was blessed with her four daughters.

Although she never thought she would start writing; she knew her life would make for one hell of a story or soap opera. She thought about writing years ago but finding or making the time to write was always the issue.

Now she finds that she has to write, this is her outlet her sanctuary, and in every book, she writes there is always part of her life written into it.

BLOG TOUR ~ Anchored To Love by S.M. Stryker

 

TITLE: ANCHORED TO LOVE 

AUTHOR: S.M. STRYKER

GENRE: ROMANCE

 



 

 

 



 

 

In this mature romance about lost loves, best friends, and second chances, author S.M. Stryker brings you the third installment of the Second Chances series. Anchored to Love can be read as a standalone.

All Charlie ever wanted to do was play softball in college. She’d worked her whole life for this, and finally made it. The only problem: it’s on the other side of the country. To keep her dreams alive, she did the only thing she could think of—move.

However, when Charlie refused to party and drink with her teammates, she was accused of not being a team player. There was no way she’d jeopardize her scholarship. Charlie would walk away from anyone that could ruin her dream.

Carson was on his own, as his parents had other priorities that didn’t include him. He was a genius, and after graduating at sixteen, he decided to travel the United States. He never believed in relationships—who needs the drama?—he was a manwhore through and through. That is, until he ran into Charlie. She was different; she was special, and he knew it from the start.

They were inseparable and spent all of their free time connected at the hip. That was until the misunderstanding happened. The one thing that would throw a curve ball into the mix. 

Will dreams slip through Charlie’s fingertips, or can she catch the ball?

Excerpt
It is warm out, and I have already drunk most of my water. I stop
by a Benson Bubbler to refill my bottle. I have Imagine Dragons playing loudly
on my iPhone. I am dancing to the music while filling my bottle, to keep my muscles
warm, not paying any attention to anything around me. I am just starting to put
the lid on my water bottle when someone taps me on the shoulder, scaring the
living shit out of me. I flinch, swinging my arms as water flies everywhere,
soaking myself and the person who tapped my shoulder. Shocked, I turn to see
who tapped me as I see water running down the face of…Oh, my God! It’s tall,
dark, and dimple.
