Recognize the Signs: When You Are in a Doomed Relationship by Vivienne Diane Neal

The cautionary signs are always there as to whether a romantic relationship is going to work. Often the messages people receive are so obvious that folks, especially women, tend to just ignore them until they recognize that the joke played on them was at their expense.

Following are the in our face signs that will tell you that it is time to move on and not waste your time, energy or power on a relationship that is destined to fail:

1.   You meet someone online. Two weeks later you’re lending him money, then for the second time and then the third time.

2.   It’s Valentine’s Day, but you’re spending that day alone.

3.   The gift giving holiday is approaching. He starts to argue or finds fault with you and leaves, only to come back after the celebration is over, begging for your forgiveness.

4.   One month into the relationship, the man wants to move in with you because he wants to shift from his mother’s house.

5.   He spends more time on his cell phone, checking his emails, sending text messages to God knows whom, or surfing through social media than he does with you.

6.   You discover that the man you met on a singles’ dating site has been legally separated from his wife for several years.

7. You discover he has a hidden child somewhere and is behind in his child support payment.

These are just some of the common signs that one should be aware of. Relationships are a give and take act. If the woman is the one giving and the man is just taking, then she will have to check her reasons for staying in a one-sided relationship.

Pre-Release Book Announcement: Destiny’s Favor (Orlosian Warriors Bk. 2) by Dariel Raye

Destiny’s Favor Synopsis

His world shifted the moment she was born. Now, nothing can stop him from making her his.

Imagine meeting a man who looks like an angel, wings and all? What would you do if this man told you he existed with only one purpose – to claim you and only you?

Destiny Carter is a feisty, take charge, Rubinesque beauty with a tough façade, who finds herself in that age old quandary, “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” A string of lackluster relationships leave her hopeless and ready to settle…Until she meets Japheth, the man her fiancé claims is his best friend! Japheth’s arrival is heralded by an attack on Destiny’s life, and instinctively, she knows this is just the beginning.

Born more than 200 years ago, Japheth looks like an angel but he’s far from it. In his world, the ratio of men to women is 500 to 1, and although he’s a superior being, he’s willing to break the most sacred law of his brothers, even drink human blood, to have one meant for him alone.

When he meets Destiny, he knows she’s the one he’s been searching for. To claim her, he will have to betray a friend, risk his life, and hardest of all, humble himself enough to win her love.

Calm Assurance (Orlosian Warriors Bk. 1)

Calm Assurance Synopsis

Two hearts, two different worlds, uncompromising love.

A straight-laced Nephilim-descendant and a human trouble-magnet?

When Asriel - Orlosian Warrior, descendant of Nephilim, law enforcer – is sent to guard Malina, a human with a penchant for drawing trouble like a tornado, she becomes his obsession.

With no hope of finding love in his dimension, he breaks the cardinal rule, leaving his home to protect her, but she has also drawn the attention of his enemies, and he is forced to face demons from his past. If Asriel chooses to stay with Malina, not only does he risk forfeiting his right to ever return to his dimension, but he will need her blood to survive.

Scarred but not broken, beautiful Adaora Dike made a tough choice early in life and she had no regret until she lost everyone and everything without warning. She finds comfort in a quiet home in the woods, deep in Dagor Village. Out there, Adaora discovers nature and animals do not condemn, only people do. One rainy night, a male shadow dashes across her yard, her heart flips over and she faces emotional chaos.

While on a field trip in Africa, handsome photographer, Gary Mason gets stranded in the woods. He finds an abandoned shelter occupied by a lonely but lovely woman he cannot get out of his head. This is one photography shoot he wants to forget, but Adaora has a firm grip on his heart and might change his life forever.

Through many Wild Whispers, will Adaora and Gary change each other or will fate intervene to keep them apart?
Wild Whispers

When Adaora recovered from the shock of watching Gary mend her leaking roof, she burst into a string of laughter.

For as long as she had lived here, no man had offered to help out with any work that needed to be done. She fixed many things herself. But her skills did not include climbing the roof.

She folded her arms and looked up at him in awe. “Thank you, Gary. You mean the carpenter sealed the leaks instead of replacing the leaking sheets?”

“Yes, ma’am,” he said in his most refined British accent.

She giggled. “Thank you. What a kind gesture. Look at me worrying about the noise waking you up from your precious sleep. I’ll go and cook us something to eat. It is my favourite dish. Do you eat spicy food?”

He laughed at her with his eyes. “Try me.”
