Princess

Princess

by:  Staci Stallings

From the outside looking in, Anthony Russell has it all. As the star basketball player on a winning college team, everybody knows him and loves him. His face is plastered on publicity poster after publicity poster. He’s even gotten offers from the pros to forego his senior year for the glitz and glamor of the Big Show. But Anthony has a secret that’s threatening to swallow his life whole…

Heather Nolan would be the perfect poster-girl for academic overachievers. She’s got straight A’s and every professor in her cheering corner. But the life Heather thought she was studying so hard for is in danger of coming to a neck-snapping halt if she can’t come up with a way to pay the bills. Bitter and angry that the basketball team seems to get the royal treatment while “real students” are forced to scrape by, Heather spitefully takes the only job available-tutoring. However, the lessons she teaches about English and what she learns about basketball soon pale in comparison with what she learns about herself.

“Kissing frogs isn’t the best way to find Prince Charming . . . The idea of a Prince Charming may only be a fairy tale, but author Staci Stallings has shown that love is capable of elevating people out of a storybook fantasy, and into a reality that is even more fulfilling and meaningful.”

The Price of Silence

The Price of Silence

Where do you turn when the watching eyes are everywhere?

Where do you go when no place is safe?

Who do you turn to when saying anything could get someone killed?

Who can you trust when “they” could be anyone?

Robyn Lockhart liked her simple but predictable life in the small Iowa town she grew up in. But when her mother moves them to the big city, Robyn has no choice but to brave the tumultuous high school she’s thrust into. Then, with barely a blink and as an outsider looking in, Robyn begins asking questions that no one seems willing to face. Is it possible to stay silent while simultaneously shouting from the rooftops that something is deadly wrong? And if you shout, beyond those watching every move you make, who will even hear?

~*~

“Stallings takes a much darker turnwith this novel than in her previous three outings and she does so very well. The sense of desperation and anguish on the part of Robyn is palpable and you definitely find yourself sympathizing with her. Stallings has created a very memorable character here… an Atticus Finch styled hero who refuses to let threats stop her from seeking the truth and justice. It would be interesting to see the author continue using Robyn Lockhart in future novels.”

~*~

Inspirational author Staci Stallings offers a refreshing romance filled with the ordinary challenges of love and the extraordinary measures endured for its sake in ETERNITY. These lively, deftly realized characters will touch readers’ hearts with their struggles with finding the path to love. No heavy-handed religious message distract the reader, yet the implicit message about the value of friendship and the consequences of devastating results of easy sex strengthen the plot. A sweetly romantic repast that examines the complexities of loyalty and friendship, ETERNITY comes highly recommended.
