Amazon

Back Blurb:

 One Christmas Eve, five years ago, James Lorde lost the love of his life in a freak drowning accident. His wife’s body was never recovered, and since that night, he’s been in a depression, both grieving and clinging to the hope that she lives. It’s Christmas Eve, and the depression is especially hard this time of year. He gets only a small measure of relief when he’s near the water that stole her away from him because, somehow, he feels her presence on the beach. His family thinks he’s losing his mind when he tells them he feels her out there, but that is the reason he bought the home where he currently resides. He wants to give her a way home. On this Christmas day, it feels as if his wife is in the home with him. In a fit of desperation, unable to remain in the house, he takes off running toward the beach. As he starts to run, he feels someone running alongside him, but there is no one there when he looks. Thinking he has definitely gone over the edge, he begins running backward, hoping to catch evidence of whomever is following him. And there they were, two footsteps next to his in the sand. He is so shocked by this that he keeps running, looking for the footsteps, but before he can focus on them, the waves wash them away. Running backward, he trips over an obstacle in his path. Turning around, he is not prepared for the sight that greets him, as he is now left to wonder, can even loved ones find their way home, at Christmas....?



 Five Star Review


https://readersfavorite.com/book-review/footsteps-in-the-sand 
Footsteps In The Sand by Ju Ephraime is a contemporary romance with hints of a paranormal and ghost story centered around the holiday period of Christmas. Five years ago, James' wife and love of his life drowned. He's never gotten over her, and since her body was never recovered, has never found a way to grieve properly. A part of him still believes that she is out there, and he sees signs of her around the house that he bought on the beach for her to come home to. He also sees her in Shelly, a mysterious woman who washes up on shore and has many of the qualities of James' wife. Shelly seems like the perfect person to rid James of his pain, but can he really let go of the love of his live? Is he ready to move on or does he want to hang on to the past forever, even if it means missing a chance to be with someone that he could truly love...?

Footsteps In The Sand is a nice seasonal love story that will make you think about the miracles that happen during the Christmas season. It is heavy on the sizzle in the romance department, which I enjoyed. It is also about true love and overcoming those debilitating emotions of fear and loss and pain. I loved having a main male character that was suffering and wasn't afraid to show his emotions. Hats off to Ju Ephraime for depicting that so well.

  Read an excerpt:



Loath though he was to admit it, he was susceptible where she was concerned. She had a lot of the qualities he admired in a woman—beauty, intelligence, pride, and sensuality. He felt it every time he was within touching distance of her. He had a difficult time keeping his mind on the business at hand when all he could think about was pushing aside his plaid and burying himself inside her.
He didn’t anticipate any problem in that regard. The tiny pieces of fabric she was wearing as clothing would present no barrier to his raging cock, just thinking about it had him rock hard. He imagined ripping off the flimsy fabric that covered her from the waist to her thighs, lifting her onto his stiff manhood, as she wrapped those long legs around his waist. He was so far gone in his daydreaming he could’ve sworn he felt her heels hitting his butt every time he rammed his dick into her. He had to remind himself she was not for him. She could be the enemy. Why couldn’t he get that through to his cock? He’d had been too long without a woman.
He vowed to stay away from her as difficult as it seemed to be for him. He had been looking for every pretext to go to her. He had to stop because he would find himself doing just what he’d vowed he’d never do—take an unwilling woman to his bed. He could tell she was unwilling because all she talked about was going home. He wished he knew how to send her back, but he didn’t have any idea.

 Reviewed by for Readers' Favorite

Coira Ainsley, beautiful, confident account representative for a high end travel company, steps into the office of the man whose business her firm has been seeking, and ends up in 14th century Scotland in The Elusive Highlander by Ju Ephraime. Sensing that the gorgeous Scottish warrior may in fact be the same man she followed into that Manhattan office, Coira is immediately on guard and demands to return to her time and place. Alasdair Campbell is unable to help, however, because he is the victim of a Druid spell that has caused him to wander the world for centuries, unsure of how to change his own circumstances. Fighting an instant attraction, Coira tries to understand her place in Alasdair’s life as he prepares for a major battle against England, trying to bring recognition to his King. When it is obvious that there is nothing to do but go along with fate, Coira succumbs to her desires and marries the Laird with some amazing results!

Popular writer Ju Ephraime has recreated the beauty and intensity of the Scottish Highlands and its people in The Elusive Highlander, and brought a love story spanning centuries to life. Deep emotion and daring intimacy are only part of what Coira and Alasdair share as the lively action recounts some of the historical truth of early Scottish history. With added touches of legend and Highland magic, Coira and Alasdair share passion and complete devotion to one another while starting a new life together. Beautifully written and heart-warming, The Elusive Highlander is a story sure to warm up your emotions. Enjoyable and entertaining!
