Debra Anastasia wows readers with her unparalleled story telling, comedic interludes and dramatic passages that have readers clammoring for the sequel to her much loved debut Contemporary Romance. In RETURN TO POUGHKEEPSIE she delves deep into the dark world of Beckett, one of the more popular characters that embedded themselves into readers' hearts.
"The Poughkeepsie Series exemplifies our motto, 'Romance without Rules,'" says Elizabeth Harper, President/Publisher of Omnific Publishing. "It's a magical story with atypical heroes and unpredictable events."
Beckett Taylor is a murderer. His calling, his craft are destruction and intimidation—
But all his willpower crumbles when he hears his brother Blake’s frantic voice on the phone. An unknown enemy has moved in on his old territory, and Livia’s been taken. In an instant, Beckett knows it will take an attack only he and Eve can execute to bring her back. All his self-imposed embargoes are torn to shreds, perhaps along with the new man he’s struggled to become.
“Brother, call Eve. I’ll be there soon.”
In this emotional and action-packed sequel to Poughkeepsie, Debra Anastasia conjures a tale of love at its most raw and ragged. With Beckett and Eve, how could we expect anything less? But even when it’s messy, not magical, true love perseveres. Real love finds a way—for better or worse until death does part.
Debra Anastasia is busy, just like every other mom. There's dinner, the dogs, the two kids, and her ongoing battle with...ahem... digestive issues, which combined with her adolescent boy sense of humor makes for colorful and sometimes cringe-worthy social media updates. Her first love and crowning achievement is her thriving career as the weirdest mom on the block.
Her writing started a decent handful of years ago when--along with the animals and humans in her house--the voices of characters started whispering stories in Debra's ear. Insomnia was the gateway to plots that wouldn't give up, wouldn't let go. Now they stalk her everywhere. Halfway through making lunches, a twist takes hold and--fingers full of peanut butter--she finds somewhere, anywhere to write it down.
