By: Tyffani Clark Kemp
Publication Date: July 25th, 2013 

Harvey Young, rock star lead of the Scottish band Shaggy Maggie, has dreamed his whole life about the red-haired girl from the school bus that he bullied until she ran away. He's resigned himself to groupie fill-ins. There's no way he'll ever see her again. Why torture himself pining for his lost youth?
Magda Canady may be on the unlucky side, but her life is starting to work itself out. She's an editor for a New York Publishing company and her long-time lawyer boyfriend is taking her home to Scotland to meet the parents and his younger brother. But the trip holds more danger than she could have imagined. Between a psycho stalker and the boy who tortured her through high school, she might lose her mind - and her life - before it's all said and done.
When a chance encounter brings them together once more, it's the past, the present, and a little psychosis that may get in the way of the future that was always meant to be.

Title: Possess My Heart
Series: The Possess Saga Book # 3
By:  J.A. Howell
Publication Date:  July 25th, 2013 

"You can't leave me because I'll only ever love you."

What was supposed to be a final goodbye turned into one last piece of unfinished business for Brody Walsh.

 As long as Aggie Walker's heart still belongs to him, he's destined to remain in limbo, watching over her.
But when her family decides to send her to Scotland for the summer and she meets Camden MacTavish, it seems despite their constant head-butting that there may be something more between them.

That is, if she is willing to let Camden in.

As Aggie finds herself torn between her lover lost and her lover anew, it becomes clear that she cannot hold on to both. If she decides to let Camden into her heart, she will have to let Brody go. And if she can't let Brody go, she risks losing Camden-and a second chance at love.

Character Bio

Aggie Walker- Aggie Walker is a late twentysomething that is left jaded after losing Brody the day after he finally admitted he loved her. Aggie has generally kept her emotions hidden, spending most her time caring for those she loves, but now as her friends, Harley and Nolan, have found love with each other, she finds herself feeling like the third wheel. Aggie is loyal to her family and friends and stubborn sometimes to fault. She speaks her mind freely, and at five feet tall she is proof that big things come in small packages. She's fiesty and tenacious-step over the line with her and she will not hesitate to let you know. Keep pushing, and you'll probably get a knee to the crotch or an elbow to the ribs.  One of her biggest faults, however, is the constant need to keep others at an arm's length. After losing Brody, she doesn't even want to think about giving her heart to someone else.

Camden MacTavish- Camden comes off as a joker. He doesn't seem to take anything seriously. He's handsome and he knows it, the long list of hook-ups and one-night stands are only further proof. He can be obnoxious and highly innappropriate, especially when he has had a little whisky. When he's hurt, he tends to act out instead of saying how he really feels. He's had a rough past, and suffered his own losses, but he hides his pain beneath jokes and bawdy behavior. He successfully gives off the impression of being a superficial, uncaring, wanna-be-rockstar to most, but to his closest friends and those he loves, he lets the real Camden show. Deep down he wants to find someone to share himself with and if he finds the right woman he won't give up. Being Scottish, he's equally as stubborn as Aggie...possibly sometimes moreso.

Grant Walker- Grant is Aggie's younger cousin and Camden's best friend. At eighteen years old, he is a rowdy, often innapropriate, fun-loving guy that you can't help but smile around. He's a sweetheart with a baby-face that could make any girl's heart melt. He is almost always sporting a mischievous look about him, and generally he is usually up to something, whether it's trying to get Aggie and Camden together, or getting himself laid. He's always looking on the bright side and trying to find the best in people, even when others put them down. Just like Aggie, he is loyal and loving. He's artistic and whimsical, and completely obsessed with fairy tales and folklore, believing that there is much more to this world than meets the eye.  Despite his care-free demeanor though, Grant often has deep insight into others. He's an old soul in the body of a young, boisterous ball of energy.
