After a promotion and subsequent move unexpectedly brings him into the middle of her dangerous situation, he must come face to face with his past and to the woman who broke him into pieces.

The first 2 books "Enticed" & "Entangled" to Ginger Voight’s newest series "The Fullerton Family Saga" are NOW AVAILABLE and we don't have to wait to long for the conclusion of this series - Book #3 will be released in March!!!

Rachel Dennehy had a crazy thought. If she could just start over somewhere else, she could forget about her sad and tragic past and all the ghosts that chased her. When an email landed in her inbox, to tutor a difficult student whose father just happened to be the CEO of one of the biggest companies in the nation, the apple was a bit too enticing for Rachel to refuse. She moves from Texas to Beverly Hills, where she is tasked with turning around her wealthy pupil’s bad attitude. It is a bad attitude that stems almost entirely from his parents’ ugly divorce and even uglier custody battle.
That her new boss Andrew, or Drew, Fullerton is one of the handsomest and most eligible bachelors in the world means nothing to Rachel. She has absolutely no plans to ever marry or have kids of her own. Her priority is teaching nine-year-old Jonathan, who needs her guidance and her direction and... most importantly... her friendship.
Drew’s brother, Alex, however, assumes otherwise. He basically accuses her of being a gold-digging opportunist upon their first meeting. This sets the two immediately at odds, though they both have young Jonathan’s best interest at heart. Alex believes that Rachel is a “ringer,” a wholesome alternative to edge Jonathan’s socialite mother out of the running for custody, since she left Drew after her own salacious affair with a younger man. He wastes no time in telling Rachel that as long as she stays in her job, she will keep Jonathan from his real mother, and that is the driving force behind Drew's interest.
Unfortunately the more he tries to warn her away from Drew, the closer he ultimately propels her toward her charming boss. Drew never questions her motivation or her presence because Jonathan thrives under her tutelage, and Drew is beguiled by her no-nonsense attitude that challenges him from the start.
Rachel navigates these choppy waters solely to protect Jonathan. She sees the adults in the family as self-serving; most of whom are far more interested in hurting each other than taking care of this fragile, vulnerable boy. Her heart traps her into this sticky web, despite her own history of loss and betrayal. How long will she last? More importantly, what will she be required to give to save these Fullerton men who continually tug her in three different directions?
The saga begins with the first book, titled “Enticed,” due to release in early 2014. Author Ginger Voight returns to the dream-making landscape of Los Angeles, in a new tale that throws back the curtain on the dangerous power, appeal and excess of the privileged. Only by the time this tale is done, one principle character will pay the ultimate price as they all race toward that elusive happily ever after.

The saga continues for Rachel Dennehy, the tenacious small-town teacher caught in between two compelling, powerful brothers.
****This is Book 2 in the series. Blurb may contain spoilers for Book 1.****
In Book 2 of the Fullerton Family Saga, teacher Rachel Dennehy heads back to California to save her favorite little boy from his rapid downward spiral. She feels responsible for Jonathan's destructive behavior, knowing it was her broken promise that sent him off the rails. She moves in with Alex, a man who had been her nemesis for so long. Thrust together with the shared goal of saving Jonathan, they find more in common than they had realized.
In fact, it is Alex who comes to her rescue Drew confronts Rachel over her “betrayal.” The chemistry still burns hot between them, but Rachel cannot forgive Drew’s cruel deception. Unfortunately he is unwilling to let her go. Drew Fullerton doesn't like to lose, especially to his younger brother. So he proceeds with his plan to win her back, using every trick in the book to force her hand, including his son.
Young Jonathan holds fast to his dream of a real family, which tears her in yet another direction. Her heart is torn between the three Fullertons, all of whom need her in very different ways. Someone is going to get hurt, no matter what she does. She struggles to do what is right, even when she finds it puts her at direct odds with what she wants.
How far must Rachel go to win back Jonathan’s trust, and protect the men she has grown to love?
Ginger Voight is prolific author, freelance writer and optioned screenwriter. Her fiction is diverse, with novels like the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD.
Having grown up reading different authors like Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger has always been drawn more to story than to genre. This shows up in her various stories. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of horror, suspense, and romance.
Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart, ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. As a result, Ginger is making a name for herself writing romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman rather than those traditionally represented in the size-biased American media. Her Rubenesque romances were created especially for those heroines with fuller figures, who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. Such titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE, THE GROUPIE TRILOGY, THE FIERCE TRILOGY and PICTURE POSTCARDS.
Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six-word memoir.

As we run around the track, I give into my frustration. “Guys, you know that I love you both, but this is going to be just like high school. I am going to have to put up with bitchy girls because the star football players talk to us.” Both guys give me knowing smirks. “You assholes are doing this shit on purpose, aren’t you?” They don’t say anything, just look at each other with a huge grin. That just irritates the shit out of me so I pick up my pace. Troy soon catches up with me. “Please don’t be mad, Destiny.” I sigh in defeat. Troy and David know I can’t stay mad at them. They have always been there for me when I’ve needed them and heaven help me, but they make me laugh like no one else. I am screwed. They have me right where they want me. I realize too, in this moment, they are sending a message to anyone who might be watching. Son of a bitch. They did this for more than one reason. They aren’t just doing it for kicks. They want guys to know I am off limits. I get why my brother is sending that message, but what is Troy’s motivation for it? “Troy, you know I’m not mad. It’s just gets annoying. Do you even realize how bitchy girls are?” He gives me a small laugh, and as Amy and David catch up to us, I notice Ryan and Chase are not far behind. “So, how do we handle the Buffy situation?” I look over at Amy. She ponders this for a moment, and then grins. “I say we just go ahead and knock out the bitches who say something.” This causes all of us to laugh. Coach blows the whistle, letting us know our 30 minutes are up. Thank God. The guys stop to talk to Amy and me while Buffy continues sending dirty looks our way. We turn to walk away and I’m not surprised when Troy yells, “Destiny, Baby! I’ll see you at home tonight.” I stop in my tracks, look back, and shoot him a dirty look. He smirks at me. Jerk. He would say or do something stupid. He always does. Leaning into him, I place my hand on his chest seductively. My hand slowly slides down to lightly brush his dick and as it pulsates, I say, “You know, Baby, payback’s a bitch.” His arm slips around my waist, tucking me into him. I go up on my tiptoes to give him a kiss on the mouth before I saunter off, putting an extra shake in my hips to make him really sweat. I hear two groans for two different reasons. One comes from David, who does not like the little show I just put on. The other is Troy, who is probably suffering and trying to hide the serious semi he is sporting.

About the Author

I have always loved reading and writing. When I was in the fifth grade I became a published writer (okay so it was the school newspaper). I spent the better part of my teen years writing stories for my friends. Sometime between ages of 16 and 35 life happened and I stopped writing but I never stopped reading. It was only after my grandfather passed away in early 2012 that I decided to go for my dreams and write a novel and self-publish it.
I write under the pen name Mari Brown, which is just a play on my real name. I am happily married to my own alpha/ former bad boy male, we have been together for 18 years. We have a 17 year old daughter and two sons ages 15 and 14. We have 3 dogs and 2 cats. There is never a dull moment around my house. We live on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Alabama.

I am a 28 year old married mother of 2. Writing has always been a passion of mine; ranging from poems and short stories to novella's. My wish is to someday see my name on the big screen with a production based on something I've written or thought up. Reading is also a passion of mine and nothing makes me happier than seeing my son grab a book when he sees me reading on my nook or a paperback. It's a great experience I hope to share with my daughter as well when she's older.

This is not your typical book, nor is your typical love story. What this book is is a brilliant story of human relationships and the result of your actions.
Morgan's wife, Jennifer, takes their 4 year old daughter one day and leaves him after 12 years of marriage. Deep inside he knows their marriage was done a long time ago, but sometimes is harder to admit to the truth than to continue living a farce.
After his wife leaves he's left lost, without motivation and trying to figure what his life will be like from here on. That's when after seeking the advice of his neighbor in the ladies department, Morgan decides to write a book. His book becomes somewhat of a best seller and Jennifer comes back ready to try marriage counseling.
In the meantime, Morgan meets Emma, a fan of his book who sends him undergarments (clean, mind you.) Emma becomes his biggest fan and encourages Morgan to want to do and be a better person as well as guiding his writer career to more positive path, they start a friendship that soon crosses that little imaginary line to "more than friends."
In counseling, the therapist encourages Morgan and Jennifer to create something "beautiful" for each other. Jennifer is bitter and mad at Morgan, other than her graphics, there's no beauty on the comic book she creates, only raw rage and resentment; her version of their relationship. Morgan on the other hand, starts writing what he thinks will be the story that's going to save their marriage, “Our Story.”
On the road to trying to save his marriage, he discovers that there are so many different components to life and that true love it's not an illusion.
I was a little apprehensive of reading another book written by another male (yes, I know I shouldn't generalize.) I'm happy to say that Morgan proved me wrong and left me looking forward to reading his previous books.
The storyline, the development of the characters and the human touch of this story is brilliant (yes, there’s that word again, read the book and you’ll understand why.) I laugh (the scenes with his daughter are precious and pretty funny,) I was angry (at Jennifer and sometimes at Emma for not making her damn mind up) and I cried (because if you ever have been through any of the situations that Morgan goes through, I can assure you this story will bring you down to your knees and you will feel his pain.)
This is a witty, laugh out loud, intelligent story; written by a very smart man who it seems to me that, unfortunately or fortunately, understand what real family and personal struggles are all about. Highly recommended!!! 

 Interview with Morgan Barker

 1. How's your writing career coming along now that you have a 9-5. Any more bestsellers in the horizon?

MB - the only writing I do is for our company's financial reports. I hate writing. Look at the mess it caused with Emma. 

2. How did you really feel when you were pouring your heart and soul into Our Story and all your soon to be ex was being cruel and a bit heartless?

 MB - Jennifer is a bitch, so that part was a given. Once I realized that Our Story was really just my way of reading into Emma, my attention shifted from writing down all of her beauty and other bullshit, to getting laid. And I did get laid. It was the best two seconds of my life with no encore. 

3. How's little Evelyn and how are you combining single life with parenthood?

MB - Evelyn is getting big, and not because of the McDonald's. She's growing like a weed. It's not as easy to pick up women in the Wal-Mart checkout when you've got a bigger kid who isn't as cute as she used to be, but the good part about her getting older is that I can more easily set up "play dates" with her friends' mothers. I mean, with her friends... and if their mothers come along, I try to get some play time too. Wink-wink.

4. What can you tell us about Emma? Any more "clean" undergarments sent your way?

MB - No more undergarments (clean or otherwise) in the mail. A few weeks ago, Jennifer left a pair of hers in my mailbox as a joke. Hardy har har. We didn't talk for a week - probably didn't help that I ordered an "adult toy" for her and had it shipped to the hospital where she works. Payback is a -itch, right? 

5. Where does Morgan Barker sees himself in 5 years ?

MB - In five years' time, Emma and I will have figured out how to be friends. She'll stop flirting with me all the time, and I'll stop holding this crazy, resentful grudge towards her for fucking up my life. That friendship is important because Emma's friend, Hope, is pretty cute, and I might need Emma to put in a few good words for me (such as how I can help her see stars simply by using my magical tongue). This is all pretty new, though, and I know Hope is engaged and has a "thing" for some other dude in Chicago, but let's face it... I'm Morgan Barker, an accountant AND former best-selling writer. Odds: my side.

About the Author

Morgan Parker is the pen name for a shy and introverted former banker. Because he could never balance his cash at the end of the banking day, he made up stories in order to keep his job. None of those stories was Textual Encounters, which is great because readers will discover a truly unique and original romance that has never been told before.

 Interview with the Author
1. Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? What inspires you to write?

When I was younger, I was bused into school so all of my friends lived far away. Instead of making up imaginary friends, I wrote stories about people. Today, I write because I like making stuff up. It's an escape for me.

         2.Is there a topic you refuse to write about? Is there a theme or idea you would like to bring to life?

I refuse to write about child abuse. I think it's an unfair way to get a reader involved emotionally and we simply read too much about that stuff in the media. I'd rather highlight the fun aspects of children, the pieces we don't hear about so much. 

I will be digging into the area of cognitive sciences (sleep) in a future project. It's an interesting love story.

       3. When you hear from your readers, what do they say? How do you react to negative criticism?

Most of my readers are thankful for my stories, which leads me to believe they've written the wrong writer. But after determining that they liked my stories, or one of them, I'm happy to chat and hear their feedback! It's always good to get criticism, especially the negative stuff because it keep writers accountable to their readers. As writers, we often think we're "selling books," but we're not... we're telling stories and engaging with our readers. If there's anything "sell," it's who we are as writers, what we write about and how we write it. People often forget that...

        4. What is something that readers don't know about your main character in Non Friction?

I think most people forget that Non Friction is written from that main character's point of view. Like most of us, when we tell a story, we add our own biases. Only a few people have said "there's a reason his wife walked out on him." And that's the truth - there's a reason. It's not necessarily a nice reason because I think it takes A LOT for a wife to leave her husband. So, like me, readers don't know what was so awful about the main character for his wife to leave. And that's probably a good thing!

        5. Do you have any writing quirks?

I like writing alone, with a movie or music videos playing in the background. That's about as quirky as it gets with me. I'm not naked or drunk/high when I write. I'm boring that way...

        6. Why did you choose to use a pen name to publish your books instead of your real name?

Choosing a pen name was a very deliberate move on my part. My real name is not as sexy as Morgan Parker, plus if Textual Encounters (my first novella) sucked, I didn't want it associated with the "real" me. Also, like 90% of writers that I know, I write for my family: Morgan Parker is made up of the my children's middle names. It's for them (minus the swearing, adultery and sex).

       7. Do you have any author events schedule (when and where,) and will you attend or will you send the lovely Amy in your place?

At this point, I don't have any author events scheduled. However, I plan on being in Vegas during that big Vegas one and I hope to have a few parties with the fans I poach from other writers who were actually accepted into the venue! Yes, Amy will be there. So, if you're going to be in Vegas, remember that Morgan Parker will be there too. Somewhere. 

A few crazy questions...

1. Do you sing in the shower?

Nope. I sing in the car when I'm all alone. 

2. Do you think it's harder for a man to write about sex than it is for a woman? 

Yes. I had a woman teach me how to write a sex scene. We won't discuss how easily those emails can lead to a huge misunderstanding between spouses. But I'll say this: oops.

3. Do you ever write naked?

Not on purpose. I think I've signed on while waiting for my wife to finish in the shower one morning and ended up writing a full paragraph instead of a couple of one-liners, but again, that wasn't on purpose. So I apologize to my readers for that one.

 4. As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

A writer. When I was a child, Stephen King was the only writer out there and he wrote 1 book/year, sometimes 2. What did he do with the other 10 months of the year with all of that money and time? (I later found out he snorted a lot of coke, which would not have appealed to me).
