November Foxtrot


Zoe is left all alone in Colorado when Calvin returns to Afghanistan. And now, as the weeks pass, she has a secret...a secret that could crumble the precarious foundation of their relationship. As Christmas comes one shock after another leaves everything hanging in the balance... Life, death, and hope...Will they be able to ring in the New Year in happiness, or will the holidays be ruined?


 Looking in the mirror, she grimaced, wrinkling her nose at her reflection. Her hair stood on end and her skin was greasy, she hadn't showered in a few days. Turning the water on, she splashed her heated skin with the cool water and rinsed her mouth out before brushing her teeth quickly and running a brush through her hair.
Grabbing her phone and gliding her fingertip over the screen, she frowned again seeing there was nothing from Calvin, no e-mail, no call, nothing. It always felt the same, like the wind was suddenly snapped from her sails and her hopes dashed. Feeling her resolve crumbling, the tears started to fall. Her heart ached and she crumpled against the wall, sliding down to a crouch, sobbing until there was nothing left. She stretched out on the floor, the rough pile of the carpet soaking up her tears. Her fingertips played in the small square of sunlight peeking through her curtains, tracing his name over and over until even the concrete sub floor should have been imprinted with the letters of her
love.The storm of her sorrow seemingly spent, she lay still, the desire to move long gone. Her eyes slid closed and she lay there, sprawled on the floor in a pool of briny tears, one hand gripping her phone for dear life. Call me, Calvin…


Scarlett Jade is just a small town Southern girl who is now a Northern transplant. She was always found from a young age with her brow furrowed, scribbling words on paper. Now that she is grown, life isn't much different, she still scribbles words, but mostly on the computer! She is married to the man of her dreams, her real life knight in shining armor and Prince Charming. She has one son who is the apple of her eye and she homeschools year round. You can typically find her playing in the dirt with her son or snuggled on the couch with her dog Peanut, reading a good book. She loves chocolate, thinks coffee should be a religion, and loves to make people laugh with her quirky sense of humor. She is bold, brazen, and even been told she's ballsy, but she doesn't mind, she takes it in stride. She has a huge passion for all things paranormal and has a penchant for spicy love stories that leave you turning the pages and dying to slide between the sheets of her next book!
