What Doug finds in the secret compartment of his new red Corvette will forever change his life. It will also change Catherine’s. Doug and Catherine come from two different worlds. Catherine’s world is one of privilege and wealth. Doug grew up dirt poor and full of envy of others who had the things that he wanted but could not have. His goal was to one day have all the things he coveted. Their worlds collide when Catherine, VP of a large New York City marketing firm, hires Doug. As soon as Doug learns of Catherine’s wealth, he sees Catherine as his ticket to all the things he covets. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married. Poor boy meets rich girl should have resulted in happily ever after — not exactly. Doug quickly learns he also covets independence. Events begin to unfold in each of their lives. For Doug, it is his mysterious discovery in the secret compartment of the Corvette. For Catherine, it is a business meeting with Alex Droxell at the Osprey Cove Lodge. When Catherine enters the beautiful and serene lodge, it’s as though she is entering another place and time. The lodge is an escape from the nightmare she is living back home. Authors Note: The Osprey Cove Lodge series is uniquely written, spanning seven geographic locations from the scenic Canadian region of the Rideau lakes to the beautiful shores of the Caribbean. An interesting web of mystery develops as the characters’ lives intertwine. The setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge series was born from my love of the beauty of this region in Canada. The description of the lodge is so beautiful and inviting that you will want to pack your bags and head there. The series is written in a continuing fashion; please be sure to read the books in the order written.

Sacred Flow

May the poetry in this book serve as a reminder to honor and respect your sensuality.
Consciously use your senses to understand the world around and within you.
Release past shame or guilt from your body and heal.
Forgive yourself for having shared your physical temple with strangers.
Bathe in the power of your creative and life-birthing center.
Allow the free expression of body movement in the form of dance.
Be like the element of water which adjusts and accepts without seeking to control.
Faithfully trust and go with the currents of life by transforming the urge to resist change.

Embrace the sacred flow within to answer the necessary questions:

• Who am I?

• What is the meaning of life?

• Why am I here?

Let the answers which arise manifest as your legacy to this world.
Sacred Flow is the sixth in a series of seven poetry books. It is composed of poems associated with topics of the sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is the second chakra. It is associated with yin and feminine energy, sexual connection, sensuality, pleasure, relationships, creative expression, emotions, sensitivity, and fluidity.

The Chakra System

The Rancher’s Revenge
by Thomas Woodhull
3.0 Stars (1 Review)
Genre: Westerns | Action & Adventure

FREE for a limited time

In a caboose on cattle train heading to Kansas City, an argument among cowboys over a poker hand leads to gunplay and a fatal shooting. Later, at the inquest, the coroner declares the incident self defense. This verdict enrages the father of the slain man, and he swears revenge against those he holds responsible for the death of his son.

Not long after, a series of accidents claim the lives of the three railroaders who’d been present during the poker game. But questions are raised about the circumstances surrounding these “accidents.” Railroad troubleshooter Jeff Porter is sent to investigate if the rancher has somehow made good on his threats.

Even before two murderous attempts on his life, Jeff begins to suspect he’s become entangled in something more complicated, and dangerous, than a simple case of revenge. Despite the help of the local sheriff, who turned out to be an old pard, and the help of new found friends, it remains for Jeff to bring the killers to justice… without becoming their next victim!
