THE CLIPPED SAGA
The end of the world is upon us.
For millennia, God’s ex-boyfriend, Satan, has worked with his army of demons to spare mortals from God’s wrath. But their time is running out…
The demon Kinzer wakes up, bound in chains, enslaved in a human trafficking operation. Before his imprisonment, he acted as a spy for Satan, infiltrating a gang of rogue demons who were working with God to expedite Armageddon. But after being exposed as a mole, the gang destroyed Kinzer’s life.
They took his wings…his lover…his freedom.
Now, Kinzer’s on a mission to escape his bondage, avenge his lover’s death, and stop the apocalypse–a mission that would be a hell of a lot easier if he could just keep his pants on.
But that won’t be happening anytime soon…
Features shameless insta-love, over-the-top everything, and D-R-A-M-A…

On 9/11, firefighter Nick Fletcher’s world changed forever. He’s unable to rid himself of survivor’s guilt, made worse by the secret he hides from his family and co-workers. Nick’s life is centered around helping burn victims, until he is reunited with the man he’d once loved but pushed away. Now he has a second chance at a love he thought lost forever.
For fashion designer Julian Cornell, appearances mean everything. His love affairs are strictly casual, and the only thing he cares about is making his clothing line a success. A chance encounter with the man he loved long ago has Julian thinking for the first time in years there may be more to life than being seen at the best parties and what designer labels to wear.
When Julian’s world takes an unexpected turn, it’s Nick who helps him regain perspective on what matters most in life. Julian, in turn, helps Nick accept who he is and understand he isn’t responsible for tragedies he couldn’t prevent. Lost love found can be even sweeter the second time around and after all the years apart, both men learn to look beyond the surface to find the men they are inside.
Loved this story
What a beautifully written story of finding a second chance at life and learning to love for the first time … and getting to do this with the one and only person you never knew you loved. Or did you?
This story is set in New York, post 9/11, and revolves around the lives of Nick Fletcher, one of New York’s Bravest and Julian Cornell, a hard-working men’s fashion designer.
Fate has brought the past into the present and put these two back in each other’s lives for a reason; the consequences that result from this are astounding.
“All I can tell you is when I’m with you, it all makes sense. People used to tell me half a life is better than none, but you’ve made me see everything I’ve been missing. Loving you has made me whole again.” ~ Nick
This isn’t just a love story ~ this goes much deeper into the heart and soul of a cast of perfectly flawed characters that Felice Stevens has brilliantly created. A battle between ignorance, stigma, cowardliness, and fear takes on tolerance, acceptance, strength, self-worth, bravery, pride, and love. The road isn’t easy, but the destination makes it worth the trek ~ Love wins. In the end, love always wins.
Felice Stevens pulls out all the feels like no one else. Brilliant storytelling, impeccable grammar and sentence structure, along with a cast to fall madly in love with, have made this a five star read for me ~

They say, once a hero always a hero and nothing could be more true for Jimmy. When Jimmy receives a call from an unknown number, he wastes no time in saving the damsel in distress.
Emma has made one bad decision after another. When a man 20 years older than her saves her from her latest bad decision, she wants to stay safely wrapped around him.
When the world throws them together then rips them apart, they must decide if what they feel is worth taking a chance on.
Raised all over the country, I’m a interesting mix of East Coast meets West Coast with a little bit of Southern thrown in, just for good measure. I married a sexy man in uniform who let me spawn and am now raising a mutinous army of hell raisers that I created myself, all while he defends our country. I drink too much coffee until it’s late enough to drink too much wine and am sexually frustrated for your freedom. If you see me online, I’m probably sitting in a closet, hiding from my kids.

Fluent in sarcasm, Supernatural, and song lyrics, I like talking to people and finding what makes them tick, though that probably has to do with the Psychology degree. I’m up before the sun because my kids don’t sleep, chugging tea and coffee to keep my eyes open and my brain semi functional. Being married to a man in uniform means I’ve lived a lot of places, survived seeing my husband for half the amount of time I’ve been married, and spent a lot of time raising my kids alone.
I love to write messed up psychos with lots of angst, happily ever afters that have to be worked for. Women with sass and backbone, men with a twisted hero complex and the need to control are my favorite to read as well as write.
Charming Taylor Samuels doesn’t expect his sister’s video audition for the reality television show The World Traveler to result in anything. But when they’re chosen to compete, he can do nothing but hope for the best.
Adam Scott’s best friend wants them to try to get on The World Traveler, and so Adam reluctantly agrees to make him happy.
As the reality sets in that they’ll competing, Adam tries not to panic too much.
Little do they know that a twist in the show will see Taylor and Adam’s worlds collide in a way they never imagined.
Will everything go horribly wrong, or could this be the perfect beginning to a wonderful journey?
The World Traveler by Claire Castle is a fun filled and refreshing book about two contestants, each with their own partners, who wind up falling for each other while traveling the globe.
Adam, and his friend, Anderson, are teammates from Chicago, while Taylor, and his sister, Jess, reside in San Francisco.
The journey starts at Wrigley Field in Chicago, where all the contestants from the TV show, The World Traveler, congregate to gather information as to what will come next—
Let the games begin! Loosely akin to the show The Amazing Race, the teamed-up couples are sent on one adventure after another, with stops in London to Rome to Islamabad to Calgary and many places in between, in a wild race to complete all the requirements before moving on to the next. But somewhere along the way, the contestants were assigned to a different partner than the one they started out with for the remainder of the challenge.
Adam meet Taylor. Taylor meet Adam. How convenient since these two have subtly had the hots for each other since Wrigley Field!
As Adam and Taylor begin their journey together as teammates, they find out just how suitable they are for each other—with and without the cameras rolling. Who knew that Adam would be the one to excel in swimming and bungee jumping, while Taylor can actually sing and dance! Afterwards, when the two were done for the day, they both seemed to excel in their hotel-room-activities as well!
Each time they make it through another elimination, they trust and lean on one another even more so. As they fall in-sync and realize it’s highly likely they could win, they also fall in love; suddenly, the challenge doesn’t seem as important as what will become of them after it’s all over.
I loved Adam and Taylor. They equally brought something to the table—their humor, intelligence, vulnerability, and sex-appeal—allblended together perfectly, and I couldn’t help but root for themas they raced to their happily ever after. I recommend this one if you’re looking for a light and enjoyable feel-good read ~

Q & A spotlight for Claire Castle, author of The World Traveler!
Had you always felt a desire to write from a young age?
📚Yes! I’ve been an avid reader since I was young. In summers in middle school, I kept a list on the fridge of what I read that summer. I’ve always loved reading and wanted to write, but wasn’t sure I could ever do it.
With all the fun and specific details you’ve added in the story, was there a lot of research involved for what goes on behind the scenes of a televised show?
📚There was quite a bit, but it was fun to me! It is tricky to get the fine line of integrating the information into a story and not making it sound like a textbook you are forced to read! I’m a huge fan of The Amazing Race.
Have you been to any of the destinations mentioned in the book?
📚Yes I have. The Scotland and Canada destinations.
What made you choose the countries that you did?
📚I wanted to have lots of variety. I think that was the important thing. The world is such a vast, amazing place! I picked some I am familiar with, but others that are intriguing and new. The ones that spoke to me.
Now, every time I hear “Safe and Sound” by Capital Cities, I think of Adam and Taylor! Do you listen to music while you’re writing, in general?
📚Oh wow! I hoped that would happen. You’ve really made my day. Of course, for me, it is “their” song. Sometimes I listen to music, but not always. I go back and forth.
Do you pull your cupcakes apart like Adam does? My hubby does the same thing.
📚LOL yes! Go Adam & your hubby.
Superman or Batman?
Would you ever consider writing another adventure/love story for the same show with different contestants *cough … Anderson* and destinations?
📚Hmmm, great question! I do want Anderson to get his story, I’m just not entirely sure if it would be in this setting again.
How did you decide which character, Adam or Taylor, would be the most suitable for the some of the challenges?
📚They just spoke to me, and it happened. It unfolded very organically.
Are you currently working on any new projects that your readers can look forward to?
📚Yes! Thanks for asking. I’m getting a Christmas novella ready for the holiday season and working on a co-write with BL Maxwell, called Cake Clash, which takes place on a baking reality TV contest.
Thanks so much for answering these questions and giving your readers a little insight into your writing world. I, for one, can’t wait to enjoy more of your work. Best of luck to you!!!
📚Thank you so much for having me! It was great to chat.

Her wild hair, boho style and silvery grey eyes suddenly hold a lot of promise. But when his office is pulled into an international investigation into the trafficking of rare books and manuscripts, the straight-laced SAC realizes he has to keep his distance from the woman who might well be involved.
Easier said than done, since fate seems determined to throw them together.
