 Crimson Tree Publishing is excited to bring you A Light In The Dark, the latest book in the Fallout Series by Becky Doughty.

 

On stage, Tish Ransome
sings about heartache and passion, betrayal, and about love gone wrong…
but she knows very little about any of it in real life. The rockstar
princess who swears like a pirate—literally—is loved and adored by
family, friends, and fans alike, and her world is filled with good
things, her future bright.
Behind the scenes, however, trouble is
brewing. When Tom, her best friend and co-founder of the Marauders,
tells her he’s leaving the band after graduation, Tish must find a new
wingman to step into Tom’s hard-to-fill shoes. The moment she hears
Sebastian Jeffries play, she knows he’s the one.
Yet with Sebastian
comes a taste of the things Tish only writes about, and she can’t resist
the lure of the tortured artist. Sebastian, likewise, is drawn to
Tish’s brilliance, but like a moth that hovers too close to the flames,
is he killing himself just to be near her? Can Tish save Sebastian
before it’s too late, or will he pull her down into the darkness with
him?

Excerpt:


My brothers used to tease me about being a changeling, a fae child
exchanged for their real Ransome sister, one who was tall and
elegant, with hair like cornsilk, eyes the color of the spring grass,
and a voice like the wind in the leaves on a summer’s night. It
never occurred to me when I was little that there was no way they
could have known those things about her if the real sister had been
just a newborn when we were switched. But I used to beg to hear the
story about the mysterious girl who should have grown up in this
family, should have been eating meals in my chair at the table,
sleeping in my bed in my room, going to school with my friends,
playing my piano and my guitar and singing in my place.
“Legend has it that the fae changeling is usually sickly or
deformed,” my oldest brother, Ben, would say, shaking his head, a
horrified and repulsed grimace on his face. “And let me tell you,
you were hideous when Mom and Dad found you, Squeak. You had
these huge bumps sticking out of the sides of your head, and the
doctors had to remove them so you wouldn’t get teased your whole
life.” He’d point to my temples and make me feel the indentations
there. “Had to cut deep to get it all. That’s why you have those
dents.” It never occurred to me to ask if anyone else had dents in
their heads.
“Even though they cut out your freaky fae horns, and even though
you may seem healthy, there are other ways to recognize a changeling.
Like being able to trace patterns in their freckles. If they have
hair so black it looks blue in the moonlight. If they’re oddly
miniature. Or, of course, by their magical giftings, like art or
music or dance.”
My brothers all laughed at my fascination over the stories Ben told,
and my ready acceptance of it all as God’s truth. That should have
been a red flag to me about the validity of the stories, but I liked
the idea that I was at least part fairy-folk, that perhaps I had a
little magic running through my veins. I had no lingering
deformities, other than the dents on the sides of my head and
consistently coming in alarmingly below average on the doctor’s
growth charts. Even now, full grown, I still stood just a bit over
five feet tall in my socks. But my brothers had often held me down to
play dot-to-dot in the freckles across my nose and cheeks, I did have
this midnight hair that grew faster than anyone else’s I knew, and
I definitely lived inside the magical realm of music.
My mom finally made them confess the stories weren’t true when she
caught them all making the sign of the devil every time they passed
me, and truth be told, I was heart-broken. I had reveled in my
magical bloodlines and the endless possibilities it offered me. I
suddenly felt, at the tender age of nine, that the flame of my life
had been cruelly snuffed out.
That was when I discovered women in rock. Yep. At nine years old. And
my mother, crazy woman, became my biggest fan. She had a collection
of DVDs of music from the 70’s and 80s that, well, rocked my world.
I was like the little girl digging through her mother’s jewelry
box, except I was digging through her jewel cases instead.

All The Way To Heaven (Fallout Series Book One)

 

Anica Tomlin, business
major, has just learned that the man she’s been planning her future
around, her Global Finance professor, already has a beautiful wife and
family. Ani cashes in her graduation gift to herself a little early a
trip to Tuscany but from the moment she boards the wrong train in Pisa,
her plans for solitude and self-indulgence begin to unravel around her.

When
a bicycle accident thrusts Ani into the skilled hands of the dashing
Dr. Cosimo Lazzaro, she reluctantly accepts his invitation to recover in
his family’s country villa, perched on a hilltop surrounded by the
Lazzaro olive groves. But it’s been a black year for olive growers all
over Italy, and generations of tradition are being put to the test like
never before.

Ani is swept up in the drama of life in Tuscany,
the convergence of old and new, and the passions that drive people to
pursue the desires of their hearts. Just as Ani begins to get her feet
under her again, an unexpected turn of events leaves her doubting the
very existence of happily-ever-after, unless she can learn to trust the
desires of her own heart.

About The Author:

 

Becky Doughty is the author of the award-winning Elderberry Croft
series and the voice behind BraveHeart Audiobooks. “I write fiction,
mainly because nonfiction is hard! Yes, I’ve tried. Let’s just say I
like to color outside the lines when it comes to sticking to facts…or
anything else, for that matter. I write Women’s Fiction with strong
elements of romance and Young Adult/New Adult Fiction. Some of my
fiction is written from a Christian worldview (and labeled as such), and
some of it is not. My stories, however, are all categorically “clean”
or “sweet” (light on language, violence, and sex), so if you’re looking
for a book you don’t have to shove under the couch cushion when visitors
stop by, you’ve come to the right place!”

Becky is married to her champion of more than 25 years. They have
three children, two of whom are grown and starting families of their
own, and they all live within a few miles of each other in Southern
California. They share their lives with too many animals, a large
vegetable garden, and a strange underground concrete room they’re
certain was built for dark and sinister purposes…
