The Tier of Eternal Grace

The Moon Clearing by Tania Elizabeth

Book Description

She lives of heart through battles of mind.
An immersive tale of mysticism and adventure, of spiritual and sensual intent that shall enrapture your every sense.
Beyond the boundary that separates the mundane and earthly planes from the divine lies Eterna Fadas, a place ruled by extraordinary beings, lithe and human-like in appearance, yet ethereal in their grace and beauty, and sensuous in nature. 
"I have existed always! Where I began I do not know, for all I know is just as I am today!"
As Queen, Tatiana was thought to have lived a life of opulence, her faith and beliefs her endearing essence. Why then was it so, that beneath the picture of perfection laid torments and terrors even she dare not explain. Being She came with its prices paid. Being She came with a deal; a contract in which she was to relinquish herself to a rogue of unmerciful fury. Would this be the end of all she know? Would this be the end of her existence?

Minds are thrown and hearts are bled. The people of her realm must now travel their own. They must seek for stars dust through the Dell of Depression. They will fight their own demons in mind. All awhile, the beast of dark, Edan, has plans of his own. Ones in which continue to change the fates of time. All lives may now carry question, some that bring no answer at all. Though could it be, that their journey's become a destiny foreseen, or shall it be their breaking.

Brenda's Review

Beyond the earthly planes lies a land that is full of magic and magical beings.The lands of Eterna Fadas,where you find fairies full of love and light.The lands and the people there are a peaceful kind.

Until things are shaken up a bit by a beastly soul named Edan. Edan has plans of his own for Eterna Fadas.Plans that will change the fates of time.

This magical story will have you flipping pages quickly,because you just have to know what will happen next and how the queen of Eterna Fadas will handle it. 

The characters are enchanting and easy to relate with.The storyline flows nicely.I love the way Tania Elizabeth writes.Her style is magical all in it's self.You will fall in love with the inspirational messages sprinkled all throughout the story.

Blurbs for all 3 books

Laney Walker is a quick witted, athletic, southern tomboy who lets few get too close, using her sarcastic
zingers to deflect. She also has no idea how others view her since Evan, her best friend, has coveted her
since they were children. But college puts a gap between Laney and Evan that neither of them were
prepared for- old relationships are tested, new ones are formed and nothing will ever be the same.
Especially when in walks one Dane Kendrick, not at all the familiar, southern charmer of home, but an
animal all his own.
A story of growing up, friendship, loyalty, first love, primal love...and life.
N/A Coming of Age- MATURE audiences.

Evan Allen is a handsome, athletic, southern gentleman who now attends Georgia Southern University
for no good reason.
After what he expected to be the romantic gesture of the century, Evan is looking at no friends, a year of
ineligibility on the football team, and no girl.
He's starting over alone and doesn't know quite how to proceed. Certain members of The Crew refuse
to let him face things by himself, taking him under their wing, and it doesn't take the ladies long to
notice him, either.
Sometimes life doesn't go as you had planned. Sometimes it goes better.
Embrace it.
Embrace, the second book in the Evolve Series by S.E. Hall, follows the characters from her debut New
Adult romance, Emerge.

Things heat up, and not just the Georgia summertime, when Dane and Laney go head to head over plans
for her new duplex. But Laney's got his number, and knows just how to coerce her bossy, domineering
man. Spend the summer with the gang and find out...just how many is a crowd?
The members of the Evolve Crew are getting older; so is the content. Mature audiences recommended.

The beginning- A point in time or space where something starts. 
32 year old Sebastian Vanwell, was a very successful yacht broker, who always loved the design and architecture of a luxurious yacht. His only addiction was being on the water. He loved it, he thrived on it, and he needed it in his life. After a very stable, loving child hood with a few bumps, Sebastian married the love of his life. The one person that he knew would always be there. Julia was his rock, and he loved her more than life itself. Sebastian kept his addiction to the water under control, wanting to keep his time with his wife and son his number one obsession, that was until he saw her. This new addiction haunted him, the one compulsion that he couldn’t control no matter how hard he tried. 

Ysabelle Telle hit him hard, knocking the wind from his lungs. Coming from worlds apart, beautiful, dark complexion Ysabelle Telle didn’t have the rich, protected background that Sebastian Vanwell had. Ysabelle lived a life of hell, in poverty, growing up with a drug addict mother that never cared, and horrific living conditions. Ysabelle lived for one person and one person only; herself. She was pure perfection, her beauty along with a flawless body had men lined up, driveling over her insuring her success as a VIP. 

There are too many words that describe the effects when two diverse worlds like theirs collide. They both have too much to lose to get caught in the forceful pull, which could destroy them both.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and drug use. Intended for mature audiences.

Kate, a no-nonsense bartender, must face her past while attempting to focus on her future.

Picturing Perfect  (Book Three)

Hadley Foster has been through a lot in her twenty-two years: the death of her beloved father, her mother’s descent into mental illness, and the loss of her soulmate, Jason Kelly, from whom she walked away years ago.
Despite all this, Hadley has remained hopeful and optimistic about life. She has been with upstanding investment banker Tucker for six years, and the future looks bright—until a trip to Europe with her best friend brings a series of events no one could have foreseen. Suddenly the brilliant future she has envisioned for herself seems to shatter before her eyes. She is faced with a stark choice: move on again, or pick up the pieces.

When destiny leads their paths to cross once more, Hadley and Jason must confront not only their painful past, but what the future may hold for them both.



I was distracted from my daydreaming by the most intense eyes I’ve ever seen. The were blue, the brightest blue. Although one of them had a patch of brown next to the pupil. Tan skin, blue eyes, dark brown hair. And a stare that made me uncomfortable.
I’d noticed him before. The first day of the tour, in fact. He reminded me of Henry Cavill. Broad shoulders, tight ass, bulging muscular arms and a gorgeous face. When he smiled, he had a boyish look about him, but when his lips were pressed tight, like when he was listening to Anabelle describe the sights, he looked like an alpha male. A hot, dangerous alpha male. I’d purposely avoided him because I didn’t want to give Anabelle any ammunition towards getting me fired. And now that I knew Tom had blabbed, I felt even more determined to keep my attraction in tact. I’d purposely stayed away. I hadn’t even heard his voice yet. Was he American? Canadian? British?
But, now he was staring and I couldn’t avoid him any longer.
“Auden, right?” he asked, offering me a fresh blueberry from a ziploc bag. I narrowed my eyes at him and his choice of snack. Here we were, in Amsterdam. He could buy a brownie laced with pot or a million different kinds of sweets. But, he was munching on blueberries.
“Thanks,” I said, grabbing a couple berries from the bag and popping them into my mouth. They were juicy and sweet. Almost intoxicating.
Stop it, Auden.
“Have you worked here long? I’ve never seen you before.” It was then that I really heard his accent. British. Delicious.
“I’m new. But, why would you have seen me before?” I tilted my head in confusion.
“My mates and I like to take trips every few months. Blow off steam.” He said, popping another berry into his mouth. His lips were a gorgeous shade of peach. “And Jordan’s the best.”
“I see.” I said, pressing my lips together, not knowing what else to say. It wasn’t often that a man could get me tongue tied. But, it was happening. All I could focus on was the dimple on his right cheek when he smiled. And how his left eye had a small patch of brown within the blue.
“Unique name.”
“Huh?” He snapped me out of my daze. “Uh, yeah. I guess.”
“Don’t hear it very often.” He said.
It was then that I realized I didn’t know his. And it was my job to know it. How was I going to get out of this one?
“Campbell,” he said,“Campbell Hutchins.”
“Like the soup?” I said. As soon as the words left my mouth, I knew they were unprofessional. But, he simply laughed.
“Wow, never heard that before.” He said, running his fingers through his silky brown hair, “My friends call me Hutch.”
“Seriously?” I asked, taken aback.
“What do you mean?” He looked confused.
“As in Starsky & Hutch?” I pressed.
“You are way too young to know that reference.” He said, shaking his head from side to side.
“They made a movie reboot when I was in high school. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson…remember?”
“Right.” He said with a lopsided grin. He had such a boyish charm to his smile, it was unnerving.
“Besides, you don’t seem old enough to know the original show either. That was the seventies.” I narrowed my eyes at him. He could be in his early thirties, but there was no way he was old enough to have watched that show when it was on the air.
“Saw it in reruns.” He said with a shrug.
“Nice to meet you, Starsky.” I said with a smirk. He shook his head at me and extended his hand like the English gentleman that he was. I tried my best not to feel the electrical current coursing through every nerve in my body. This was a brand new sensation. Which is saying a lot considering my boy-crazy history. This was unique and terrifying and wonderfully exciting. “Sorry, I mean Hutch of course. So, Campbell…where’d your parents think of that one?”
“Do you always interrogate tour members about their names?” he asked with a chuckle. My cheeks turned pink when I realized I usually didn’t give a crap about people’s names or the origin of said names. But, he was different. It was like I needed to know anything I could learn about this handsome stranger.
“Just answer the question,” I said, flirting with a tilt of my head and arms crossed across my chest.
For a second, everything stopped as Campbell looked down at my feet. He smirked as his eyes climbed up my calf and to my thighs. They lingered there for just a second before continuing up to my torso, my chest and finally my face. When our eyes met, he grinned and I suddenly felt as naked as the day I was born.
“Tradition.” He answered. When I looked confused (because obviously I’d forgotten the question since he’d studied every inch of my body as if he wanted to devour me). “I’m named after my great grandfather. He was kind of a hero in my town.”
“Where are you from?”
“Um, no. Try again.”
“What do you mean?” he asked with a chuckle.
“I’m from the states, pal. I know when someone’s from Joi-zee and when they’re not. And you clearly are not. Where are you really from?”
He threw his beautiful head back in laughter, that dimple once again making a grand entrance on his cheek. Something twitched in my belly—desire, I think. Until I realized he was laughing at me.
“And you call yourself a tour guide? The island of Jersey…one of the Channel Islands…” His voice trailed off as he leaned his forehead in my direction. If he could read my mind, this is what it would say:
You know those moments when you really just want to crawl in a hole and forget your poor excuse for a life? Yeah, this was one of those moments. I could never get that moment back. I could never convince this gorgeous man that I was not only aware of the Channel Islands, but had probably been to one or two of them as a child. I just wanted to slink back to the tour bus and hide behind the seats. So not like me. I didn’t let men get under my skin. Hell, I got under their skin. Who was this guy?
“Uh--Of course,” I said, stumbling on my words. “I was just kidding.”
Just then, I was saved by another member of the tour. A mousy brain haired American girl named Becca.
“Excuse me, Auden. Anabelle needs you.”
Thank God.
“I’d better, um…go,” I said.
“Until we meet again,” he said with a chuckle.
Not if I can help it. The next three weeks would be agony if I had to dodge that gorgeous man every time our bus made a stop. Lord, beer me strength.


I have always been fascinated with books----ever since I was a little girl sitting in front of my record player, following along with my huge 12x12 storybooks.

I love books---everything about them. I love reading them, being surrounded by them in bookstores and libraries, and most recently, writing some of my own.

Excerpt 1
Leaving the Notre Dame de Paris after this special Christmas Holidayceremonial mass, the pair walked back to The Bleu. Later today they would headto the vineyard and prepare for the wedding two weeks away. Once outside, Olivier,dressed in a knee-length dark gray wool coat accessorized with an old scarf, andBrie, clad in a dark velvet green coat with an old scarf of Olivier’s made their waydown the steps and headed for the bridge, departing the island which lay in the middle of the Seine River. It was bitter cold out with a constant wind. Snow seemed imminent.
“I do believe, Brie, you may see your snow you love, even today,” Olivierquipped. They had forgotten gloves today but both had boots on. The old scarfsmade Olivier think about his parents. He hadn’t really told Brie much about them;he must tell her at the vineyard before the wedding. She would understand andprobably question why he hadn’t mentioned all this before. She had been toopolite to ask, especially since she ended up with the necklace; she felt she shouldnot intrude upon this intimate piece of jewelry or his mother. He would tell herwhen the time was right. Maybe they would have little children of their own,little-Volney-Lavalles. He looked at Brie and this thought made him smile; he puthis arm around her waist, bringing her close as they walked along the Seine.
“Olivier, let’s get a coffee to warm us up,” Brie spoke as she spied a sweet shop.They went inside to get warm and share a savory sweet pastry. Brie ordered thecoffee and impressed Olivier with her French speaking skills. “S’ilvous plait, unetasse de-” Brie paused to assess her own spoken words.
And Olivier finished with, “cafĂ©.”
“Thank you. I mean . . . merci!”
“Marvelous, you are learning so quickly.” Olivier was impressed. Sooner or laterthey would be having conversations in French, he thought.Sharing a delectable sweet, they fell, further in love.“Brie, can I ask you a question?”
“Sure, ask anything,” she replied.
He looked at her, smiled, and asked, “Do you want children, children of yourown, with me?”

She looked at Olivier, pondered the thought and decided that was a fairquestion. She never thought about it anymore as she had gotten over the idea afew years ago in her late thirties. Back in her twenties, she wanted them, in themidst of her career, but it never happened so she put it aside. But now, she shouldreconsider with Olivier. She breathed in rather loudly and blew it out.
