Matchmakers Box Set~ Bernadette Marie
Genre Contemporary Romance:
Digital ISBN:13: 978-1-63112-049-7  ISBN 10:1631120492

Cellist Sophia Burkhalter thought ten years in Europe performing with an exclusive ensemble would have made it clear that she wasn’t a candidate for her grandmother’s matchmaking. After all, she’d walked away from the man she loved, leaving him back home in Kansas City.

David Kendal had fallen in love with Sophia, a match orchestrated by her grandmother and his aunt. However, the unexpected appearance of the daughter he never knew he had—and Sophia’s sudden, subsequent departure for Europe—thrust him into the role of single father.

Carissa Kendal has only ever wanted the best for her father. It doesn’t take long for her to realize that the very woman who broke her father’s heart might be the one to make them a real family.

Can Carissa and the women who originally played matchmaker to the duo convince them that love is worth a second try? Or will careers and past mistakes tear them apart forever before they have a chance to reconcile?

Newly unemployed concert pianist, Thomas Samuel has spent most of his adult life escaping his upbringing. He’s become an expert at hiding his feelings and remaining professional. But when he meets cellist Carissa Kendal he’s faced with one emotion he can’t escape—love.

Carissa hadn’t expected her mother to take on the art of matchmaking and she was convinced she wasn’t very good at it. Strong minded Carissa had her work cut out for her with the emotionally scarred Thomas, but love always wins in the end—or does it?

By the time Thomas realizes his past does not define the man he has become it might be too late. Big venues and scenic places might just win over the heart of Carissa and take her away from him—unless he hurries and faces the man who ruined his career and convince Carissa that every performance, even love, deserves an encore.

Finding Hope
Hope Kendal has lived a perfect and peaceful life. However, she is a mystery, to herself. The one thing that would make her feel whole would be to know about her birth parents and discover who she really is.

Private investigator Trevor Jacobs has a job to do—find Hope for her biological father and get to know her without her finding out. Locating her was the easy part. Falling in love with her hadn’t been in his job description.

When Trevor is asked by Hope to help her find her birth parents he is put into a difficult situation. If she discovers he already has all of her answers it might cost him his heart—and those answers might cost Hope her life.

Ebony is a smart, sexy, career-oriented black woman who wants nothing more than a summer fling with a man who challenges her mind and body. What she doesn’t expect is a blond haired, blue-eyed bass player—who won’t take “no” for an answer—to accept the challenge. 
When Ebony’s attempt at a brief fling turns into more, despite negative reactions from friends and family, she finds juggling love, family, and career are nothing compared to the ultimate betrayal she endures. Now her dreams spiral into lies and secrets that threaten her future and her best friend’s trust.

Charlotte’s lips only took a moment to find those belonging to her beloved.  He tasted faintly of molasses and she was immediately drawn into the warmth of his embrace.  Their bodies were perfectly pressed together, fitting as though one had been divinely made for the other, as Sanderson’s kisses trailed from Charlotte’s lips down her neck. 

Her hands found his softly stubbled face and guided him back to her lips.  With his strong arms around her, she’d never felt more safe. Or more vulnerable.

War. Devotion. Deceit. Death. How long can a heart hold on before it breaks? Most women would carry on with their lives after being thrust into widowhood, but not Charlotte Adamsland. Upon learning that her husband, Captain Sanderson Redding, was killed in a botched escape from a Confederate prison in Illinois, she clings to his promise to return to her no matter what, and quickly heads north through a war-ravaged country with only her faith in God and her beloved horse to bring her beloved Sanderson home – one way or another.

Dacque LaRose, the protagonist in the Dacque Chronicles, is a very unusual Good Samaritan who has been selected by the Heavenly Powers to assist Them in rescuing deserving souls in need of rescuing, no matter whether these souls still reside in human bodies or have departed from their human residences when their body passed away. Dacque’s soul has earned this exalted position as God’s helper through his exemplary actions and clean living throughout his numerous previous incarnations, as well as his current lifetime. To assist Dacque in carrying out these noble duties he has been bestowed with unique powers in this lifetime, powers which allow him to see and converse with spirits as well as receive direct messages from the Heavenly Powers.
Soul Rescue is the recounting of Dacque’s latest adventure where he is directed to the local children’s hospital to locate and assist the earth-bound spirits of five children stranded for many decades.

Dacque LaRose, a genuine good-guy and Good Samaritan, was accustomed to being visited by and communicating with disembodied spirits as he carried out his occasional assignments received from the Heavenly Powers. His latest spirit visit went miles beyond anything he would have ever imagined. The spirit of a former acquaintance and recent murder victim joined Dacque one morning on his favorite park bench and asked him to assist in solving his murder as the local authorities were getting nowhere, through no fault of their own but due to a lack of any substantial evidence in the case.
Dacque had absolutely no idea how he could be of assistance in solving a murder, but he was accustomed to receiving his Heavenly assignments one installment at a time so he knew the steps he would be expected to follow would appear in due course.
Dacque’s new assignment proved exciting and educational as the spirit of the murdered acquaintance gladly explained to Dacque and his detective friend the inner workings of the Soul Mind or subconscious mind.

Soul Connections describes the educational journey, guided by the spirit of a sudden murder victim, of a group of individuals through the process of investigating their inter-connected past lifetimes.  As well as the surprising discoveries uncovered through their past-life research, the spirit and soul of the murder victim educates its past relatives, from its previous lifetimes, in the knowledge retained by our souls after death, and in the ‘life’ of souls temporarily residing on the other side as they await their next incarnation.

That is SO going in my book!!!

As an author I was very careful, early on, to not make anything real to me. No character had a name of someone I new. There were no locations that were real. Certainly there were no traits that would get me in trouble. (With that said, and I digress...when you say you write romance that's the first thing people think they are reading about...your love life. UMPF!)

After twenty-one books, and numerous other isn many stages of publication or editing, and four years in publishing I have gotten over this little stepping stone. It is now most fun to watch the world and stick it in my book.

The very first "real thing" I ever put in a book was this passage:
Finding Hope, book 3, The Matchmakers Series

Sweat beaded on his brow. Trevor reached for his bottle of water. It had grown warm. He drank it down and tossed it into the backseat with the other bottles he’d discarded there. He knew he wasn’t the ideal patron for a car rental company.

My poor husband. Yes, this was him once upon a time (I'm being nice.) The entire back floor of his car was piled with empty water bottles. All these years later you will find if someone's looks intrigue me, there is a character. I even had the infamous wandering eye of someone close to many of my friends. (Not as if he's looking at a hot woman...he's looking at the world while having a conversation with you! Awesome, yet annoying, character trait for a character to have.)

There are so many little thing from the way someone eats to how they watch TV that can make for one fascinating character.

Once you're established enough, too, people love to share little things with you and you certainly end up putting some of them in your books.

I like to share when my real life mimics my craft. For instance I have a beloved Star Wars hat. Wouldn't you know that one of my characters wears that hat? I have a second degree black belt...yep a few of my female characters do too. The decor of comfortable restaurants has peeked into my books and wouldn't you know it Eduardo Keller drives my truck! Speaking of driving, it is from experience that I wrote Courtney Field, who is blind. My suite mate in college was blind and yes, she did drive my car!

It's so much fun when you can make your characters live out all the fun pieces of your life and not necessarily drown them in your sorrows.

Do you write in personal things? What are they? Now I want to know! :)

Veterans Day ~ Honoring those who serve

I am the granddaughter of a US Marine. That is a proud statement. I was much older before I realized what that meant. Sure, I know that there are hundreds of thousands of men and women protecting me. I've understood that since I was a small child. What I didn't realize was the sacrifice even those who come home and lead normal lives, made and continue to make.

To me he was my grandfather. Kind. Loving. Caring. Every memory I have of him only makes me smile. But you look back in history and you see that the fact he could act normal around me, that was a great gift.

He enlisted during WWII. He was in a division that went in after battles and "cleaned up." I can't imagine the carnage and the devastation that man witnessed. It was long after he'd passed that we learned of how much it affected him. The nightmares he'd have. The breakdowns I don't even think my mother knew about.

He had a small box with "souvenirs." To me there were bigger than life pieces of history. To him they were heart breaking reminders of what he'd seen. I remember when he passed asking for those items. I got a few of them. Others I had learned he'd thrown away because it bothered him to have them.

I have friends who are missing their children be born and watching them grow so that I may sit here and write love stories. I have in-laws who have watched historic events unfold in front of them and find it strange to not sleep with a gun across their chest.

A year ago my mother and I were at the high school, standing in line for a concert. In front of us was a Marine in his full uniform. I was absolutely floored when nearly every high school student that walked past him stopped and thanked him for his service. Likewise when the elderly woman walking to the back of the line with her walker reached out to him and shook his hand. She thanked him for his service and told him she and her husband had also served. To which the young Marine turned and shook their hands and thanked them.

I'm not a fan of Veterans Day as a day to buy things. You won't get my business by using that term. And I wish, oh how I wish, that schools would give this day to the teachers and the kids. There are some "days off" to celebrate that are not as worthy as being thankful for the freedom you have by honoring those who gave it to you.

Yes, this is what this day is for. Shake the hand of a Vet and thank them. Honor them by appreciating them.

Thank you to all who serve! May God bless you always!
