A great story.

‘The Captain and The Ambassador’ is an enjoyable blend of science fiction adventure, space-travel and lighthearted romance, with some well-developed mystery and drama woven through the story, infusing it with greater depth and tension.

Regardless of the fact that the book is largely set beyond earth, Kauffman demonstrates the universal truths of human nature through her characters. It’s easy to see that a character in a book is putting other concerns ahead of those of the heart, but on reflection, the reader understands that this is very often the sort of limitation that an individual puts on oneself for one or more different reasons. It takes only a little empathy for the reader to want the heroes of the story to end up happy, but this also carries the reminder that it’s important for each individual, reader included, to choose the life that makes them happy, too.

Whether it’s because they have enjoyed them or because they haven’t, everyone understands the value and importance of acceptance, love, personal freedom and justice, and it is those qualities that make ‘The Captain and The Ambassador’ a satisfying and enjoyable read.

Their everlasting love has survived many lifetimes, but not without sacrifice and heartache. Their relationship is never easy. After their first meeting at the serene Blue Lake, fate tends to keep them apart until they’re ready to find each other.
Fate rubs its hands with glee after playing a cruel joke on them this time and places them on different continents, twenty years apart.
Nicole was born in Ohio. She doesn’t remember her past life. She had a career, got married, and was later widowed.
Richard entered life twenty years later in Britain and became an actor.
But fate cannot keep them apart. What they have is more than love. They’re eternal soulmates.
When they finally meet in Albuquerque, they remember their love and feel overwhelming joy, but the twenty-year age difference plants the painful thorns of doubt, worry, and fear.
Their unlikely but undeniable love pulls them closer and closer, while careers, family, and other relationships push them farther and farther apart.
The ten year period they spend together in this lifetime takes them on many exciting adventures from beautiful New Mexico, across the Atlantic to England, Ireland, Italy, and Aruba. Nicole and Richard have an incredibly strong connection, but they must face not only happiness and joy but the dark side of life as well.

I don’t usually read books like this one, but I am glad I read it

By nona114

I don’t usually read books like this one, but I am glad I read it. This book is about two people who love each other no matter what happens to them. It is about two people who are from different planets, and one is a princess, and the other one is a farm boy. He had loved her from afar for a very long time. Finally, they meet, and she picks him from all the other men. She falls in love with him, and he tells her he has loved her for a long time. This book is would you need to read, and you can see that love in the same in any universal. I recommend this book to anyone who loves to read a different kind of love story.

#AuthorNetwork,#IndieBooksPromo, #amreading, #amwriting, #indiepromo

As retired insurance office manager Skye McKenna launches a new career as a children’s book author., she embarks on a book tour in Australia, where she meets a reclusive elephant-loving veterinarian. Why does he seem so familiar? And so attractive? And how old is TOO old to find love?
The TIME AFTER TIME series follows a pair of quintessential lovers, Richard and Nicole, through their lives together, at different times, in different places, with different names and faces. This follows the alternate theory that the relationships we forge in this lifetime, both good and bad, are continued in the future and rooted in the past. Those people who have had a profound effect on us in this life will find us in the future.

Valerie Roberson

How many lifetimes have you sought out your true love and found them again and again?

Did you ever have a dream about a person for years that you never met, but you know you know them very well? And when you do finally meet, the both of you have memories for things you did together, years ago, centuries ago, another lifetime ago? And the both of you know the others name from another time? Well, this happened to Skye and Derrick in their 60’s.
When they both called each other by their other name, I got goosebumps! Some people are meant to be with each other forever and that means from lifetime to another. Somehow, one way or the other, they find each other. I like to think my Husband and I are like that. I believe that you live on in your sprite form until God has another plan for you. So why not being with the only one for you, your Soul Mate, from lifetime to lifetime and so on?
This is a very touching story and makes you think about who you are with and people that you have met and felt a connection to right away. I love how Carol put this story together. It’s a love story of a different kind. Sweet, mystery, funny and heartwarming all rolled into one.

Race Car Driver, Italy and Attempted Murder, Another Richard and Nicole AdventureThese Stories of Richard and Nicole are remarkable! Each one is more exciting than the other. It amazes me how they keep finding each other and at least one of them knows who they really are. Carol Ann Kauffman has such a way to bring these two together in such an unusual way.
Richard accidentality ended up in a kidnapped race car driver’s body. The doctor who walked into his room, her name was Brook, but Richard knew it was Nicole. His Nicole! Head trauma said the doctor, but I can fix him with some time. But Richard didn’t have time. There were people out to kill him. So his Father wanted to take him back to his home in Italy and have the doctor come with them. The head of her hospital didn’t want her to go.
More than once someone tried to take their lives. When Nicole returned to America, her longtime companion wanted to marry her and she said no. You see, by now she knew who Richard is. Without giving anything away, you go through many attempts on their lives and you will be surprised who is doing it. Trips back and forth from America to Italy, with adventure in both countries. Nicole does leave the States to live in Italy and open her own hospital. But that’s not where it ends.
With Nicole’s birthday coming up fast, I knew they had to make some kind of changes. The way it was done was a huge cheer and a tear. I really loved this book. Edge of your seat action. Twists and turns and suspense around every corner. Love Carol Ann Kauffman’s work!!

She struggles against them, searching for a way to escape, but every discovery only terrifies her more.

Loved this series

I won a paperback of Rendered, so I bought Retained and Recombined before starting the series, without even knowing what they were really about. This was the first time I read a series like this… ❤ The end of the world and conspiracy theories are not something I am into, but Samantha Jacobey sucked me in and held me till I finished them all. I really enjoyed the entire series and the final book, Recombined, really brought it home! It was such a great series!!!

And yet, they are drawn to each other with an undeniable hypnotic magnetism. This is the story of Rebecca Robbins, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in the country and Mark Ramsay, a man shrouded in dark mystery and hiding in the shadows

Great Read

This was such a surprising read. I was expecting a suspenseful romance but it really was a thrill ride full of unexpected twists. The characters are unique and nothing is as it seems. Even the secondary characters grab your attention. As the story unfolded I truly loved that there were stakes that went so far beyond will they wont fall in love. That said the romance was perfect. There was a bond there that surpassed the natural and really Mark was just the perfect man. I look forward to reading more from this author soon. If you want a romance that is high in suspense yet still manages that sweet romantic feeling this is your book.

When widowed Nicole decided to step back into life in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico with Richard, a young, handsome British actor who professed his undying love and devotion to her on a daily basis, she mistook his boundless enthusiasm for her as little more than youthful impetuousness. She had no idea where their relationship would take her physically or emotionally. She would find herself in many dazzling international locations, putting her own life on hold, simply to be with him. She had no concept how strong her commitment to him would grow and to what extent she would go to protect him and ensure his safety and well-being. And she certainly had no idea the depth of his devotion to her, an unlikely but undeniable love that would span continents and a decade of their lives, entwining them closer and closer, while his career, their families, and other relationships pulled them farther and farther apart. BLUE LAKE is a story of the power of love.
The series, TIME AFTER TIME, follows a pair of quintessential lovers, Richard and Nicole, through their lives together, in different places, in different times, with different names and faces and sometimes even on other planets. This follows the alternative theory that the relationships we forge in this lifetime, both the good and the bad, are continued into the future, and are rooted deeply in our past. Whatever we do, whoever we love, and the good and evil deeds we do today follow us into the future. Unsettled issues will present themselves again and again until they are ultimately resolved. Those people who have had a profound effect on us in this lifetime will find us again in the future. And although everything changes, love remains.


Books in the TIME AFTER TIME series are BLUE LAKE, BELTERRA,
The BASLICATO, BENTLEY SQUARE, WAITING FOR RICHARD, and LORD OF BLAKELEY. They do not need to be read in order.

A wonderful love story!

Love at first sight, the BIG and REAL one, happens occasionally but if it does, it’s spectacular. However, the relationship with the true soul mate or twin flame isn’t easy, requires sacrifices, and sometimes even inflicts pain. On one hand, perfect couples deal with overwhelming joy, on the other hand with doubt, worry, remorse, and fear. Carol and Richard, the main characters in Blue Lake, initially sharing a strong connection, have to face the hidden, dark side of love as well and fight together for their future.
Despite being a down-to-earth person I got carried along with this novel. I suppose it’s a matter of the cast, great and versatile setting, and emotional charge. Even stone-cold readers like me would need some tissues to get through the Blue Lake and it’s absolutely fine–it feels good to realize there is love out there. And it conquers all.
If you like smart and witty romance with interesting characters and a superb plot, if you are not afraid to weep and cry, you should read Blue Lake.

Space Romance with a out of this world cliff hanger!

If you love Science Fiction, Romance, Adventure and a cliff hanger out of nowhere, then this book is for you. Carol Ann Kauffman writes clean romance and with her details and your own mind, you don’t need hot and sexy, it’s already there. I love that about her romance novels. She allows me to enjoy the true meaning of the story and lets my imagination do the rest.
This is about two people heading home to Earth. Neither expected love to come into play and neither expected huge trouble from an ex. But when you are told on ship that your spouse has passed away, well that gives you permission to move on, even if it is with the Captain of a spaceship.
Well there is a huge change of events with one going to jail, one being shot out of the garage shoot and one who just wants to be happy with a new life on earth. There is love making in front of a huge window looking out at the vast space and stars. There is vengeance and madness and down right evil. But there is a mystery mixed throughout it all and so many surprises along the way, especially the end.
I love Carol Ann Kauffman’s work and highly recommend her books to everyone!

The Irrevocable Series is a pretty clean YA dystopian series (end of the world

The Irrevocable Series is a pretty clean YA dystopian series (end of the world…. not zombie apocalypse). I enjoyed this series very much. I am definitely all for end of the world books. I think my favorite part of this series was Bailey. The loss of the most important people in her life changed her from pleasant to an angry at the world, bitter self centered girl. Through each of the books I could see and feel her growth as a person in trying to deal with everything. Book one sets up the series and book two and three are where all the good stuff happens (for me). These books are action packed and full of twists and turns. The story is well written and the main characters are relatable and real. There were a few too many side characters for me to keep straight in my head. All in all, this is a great series and I would recommend this to everyone!
