When Time Comes by Cat Nicoaou

Athena can't avert her eyes. Alex Dane is back in Greece. Her mind wanders in time, six years ago, to the island of Rhodes. Three lustful days with him and a precious gift he left her with. All she needs is a leap of faith, but will he fly? Dare they dream again "When Time Comes"?

When Time Comes by Cat Nicolaou Review by J. Cassidy

Review by: J Cassidy on Feb. 25, 2015 :
‘This is the story of’ is a beginning to a review that will not do the book justice. But this is the story of Athena, unhappy and unemployed, whose life changes because she finds a job in teaching art, something she adores.

Though it may not appear to have much to do with the story, it is a boost to her confidence and the reason she decides to treat herself to a concert starring Alex Dane. Good looking rock star, one time fling, and quite possibly, something much more.

Young Athena met Alex many years ago and a relationship started that never got the chance to properly develop. Now, faced with meeting him again, Athena dares to dream that now the time is right.

The romance is sweet, the steamy scenes are very…. steamy… and the characters are oh-so-bad at communicating. As much as this is a romance, it’s also a tale of how and why such perfect relationships can go wrong.

I would have liked to see more of both characters in different situations, so I could get to know them better. This wouldn’t help the story along in any way, but since I grew quite fond of them, I wasn’t quite ready to leave them yet.

Celebrating Cat Nicolaou's debut "When Time Comes" coupon valid only 24th Feb WX82Q  

This is my story of how a paedophile entered my life, home and family when I was six years old. 
I highlight how he attempted to break my mind, soul and spirit for his total control over me, and how I fought for my sanity, survival and freedom against his evil and constant onslaught of abuse.
I was Marie; now I'm Jes.
“Even when I die, I'll come back to haunt you.”
It's time for Jes to bury Marie's ghosts forever.
Six-year-old Marie finds her world has changed and become one of confusion, deceit and abuse.
No longer called by her birth name, she is unaffectionately referred to as Scrag - a shortened version of Scraggy-knickered-nut-rag.
Her will to survive manifests quite bizarre tactics, as she deviates off course into a childhood of insanity, paranoia, glue-sniffing, self-harming and messages from David Bowie ringing through her ears.
Her mind contrives strategies to cope with the continued onslaught that it seems destined to endure.
Adulthood is her escape route if she can survive the wait, but can demons be truly locked away in the past forever?
This is the story of one child's mind at the mercy of a real life monster.

The great hero Kam Daishen lies dead; taking his name and armour, a young woman sets out to complete the slain knight's quest.
For twenty years, civil war has wracked the Darician Plateau; now the armies of the Empress Kaesa stand poised to seize victory. From the smoke of war comes a rebel champion, Sabra Daishen, sworn to the quest and guided by the ancient spirit of the warrior whose armour she wears.
To overcome the legions of the mad empress, Sabra must unite the rebel factions; accompanied by the old sword-diva Meridian Charn and the beastman archer Menalowen, Sabra sets out to raise an army.
But behind the imperial legions stands the Empress herself, a woman possessed of dark sorcery and supported by inhuman allies. To win victory on the battlefield, Sabra must first defeat the demons of her past to become more than a knight, and master the spiritual powers of a paladin.

Sammy thinks she’s hit rock bottom. She’s wrong.

Her difficult past has made her brittle, distrustful and incapable of forming real relationships. Now caught between the death of her father; the return of an absent mother; unscrupulous friends and Kev, she finds herself having to choose between love, friendship and honesty.
Happiness is within reach but only if Sammy can see The Obvious.

Sometimes when you believe it’s the end, it’s only the beginning.
A secret betrayal with no time for revenge. The mystery unravels to reveal the magic of love.
September Ends is contemporary fiction with romance, erotic and supernatural elements, bound together by poetry. It reveals the intricate web of passion and desire which entangles Liz Snow, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage. The story is told through Liz Snow’s diary, Jack O. Savage’s poetry, and from letters sent across the Atlantic. Traveling throughout the lushness of a summertime in Tennessee and Georgia, September Ends journeys into the elegance of London’s West End and is finally settled in the countryside of Cornwall, England, a decade later.
September Ends is a story of sin, redemption, and salvation through love, because love happens when we least expect it.
