About The Book
51YkE6BNzfL.jpgCatherine is living a dream life, rescued from an orphanage and married to her best friend. Life couldn’t get any better, and she is the envy of everyone in the little town where she lives. But it turns into a nightmare the day she is given the news that will change her life forever… Her fairy tale life becomes a living hell on earth.

For two years she exists, barely acknowledging one day from the next. Suddenly, without any warning, a stranger walks into her life, and everything is about to change. Is Catherine ready for the change, or is she still only living to die?

Titus is only visiting the home of his brother-in-law’s distant cousin. He isn’t looking for a relationship; neither is he searching for love. Yet, they both find him, with no advanced warning. Titus is not one to succumb without a fight, and boy does he fight, but it seems the harder he fights, the more the force pushing him into Catherine’s waiting arms fights back.

Readers Favorite review
"Ju Ephraime's historical romance, I Will Follow: To Eternity And Beyond, is a heady and sensual romance about a love that transcends time and place. Catherine and Cameron are marvelous characters. She's the guiding star that he's inescapably drawn to, and he's the knight in shining armor who snatches her from the clutches of an unscrupulous nun who means her nothing but harm. This novel is set in the pre-WWI years, and the author does a beautiful job of setting the scene, especially in the care she takes with the descriptions of the landed gentility and the growing in roads the automobile makes into the British countryside. While there are a number of scenes involving love-making and sensuality, they are well-written and appropriate for an adult audience. The paranormal aspect of this novel is also enticing and adds a touch of mystery to the plot. I Will Follow: To Eternity And Beyond is most highly recommended." ~ Jack Magnus - Readers' Favorite

Enjoy A Sample from Chapter 21
    Catherine continued on her way to her greenhouse, grateful she’d not run into Titus. She liked to think of him as Titus, not Lord Braithwaite, which somehow seemed too formal. He made her feel things. Things she hadn’t felt in years, and she resented him for it. She wanted him gone from Chatterwoods and her life back to being the way it was before the dinner party.

    She spent a very satisfying morning taking care of her plants and working on a new scent she was trying to create. It was almost there, but something was missing. She had to go through the oils she had in her small apothecary to see if there was anything there she could use to enhance the scent.

    Exhausted from the events of the previous night and everything that had taken place, including Titus entering her room, Catherine left the greenhouse and proceeded to go to her room. A long soak in her tub was what she needed. Catherine found it both a pleasure and a torture to soak in the tub. It reminded her so much of Cameron. He used to love to bathe her or use the bath water after her. She missed all these things about him. Everything about life excited him, and he had infected her with that excitement. It was like a contagion. Now that he was gone, she missed that excitement.

    It was almost time for supper, so she got dressed, left her room, and was making her way to Suzan’s room to check up on her when she came face to face with Lord Braithwaite, walking out of Cameron’s room. Two things hit her at the same time. She could have sworn she saw Cameron walking out of his room. Rubbing her eyes, she looked again, but it was only Titus Braithwaite. He didn’t look like Cameron, except in their well-developed musculature, so how could she have mistaken the two? But all this aside, why was Lord Braithwaite still at Chatterwoods?

THE LACASSE BROTHERS’ LIVES ARE ANYTHING BUT ORDINARY.
Restaurateur Wolfe LaCasse is trying to juggle his family restaurant while maintaining his love for swimming. When vacationer, Daphne Cohen invades his privacy by making his private beach her favorite hangout, Wolfe is HARD-pressed to resist her lure.
Foxx LaCasse is a successful businessman with a love for soccer, which he indulges in every chance he gets. As a member of the local league, he has his pick of women. They are forever throwing themselves at him, and then he meets beautiful Therèse, who is visiting the island from the UK and he has a life-changing experience… He falls in love… HARD! His dilemma is how to convince her to stay and accept his proposal of marriage. Will she? Did she?
Into this mix comes younger brother, Raymond, who has been away at university in Paris. He is now returning home to set up his own business, alongside his brothers. As luck would have it, or maybe the devil, who’s always in the mix, a chance encounter with Parisian, Gabrielle Descotte, a professional model has a powerful effect on him. Raymond has no hopes of ever seeing or meeting the beautiful model again, until fate lends a hand, and he finds something that belonging to her in his possession. He goes to great lengths find her to return the item… only, will he be able to let her walk away when he meets her again?
The series ends with sister, Franchesca LaCasse, who has been in Paris, like her brother Raymond, studying at university. Now Franchesca is working as an accomplished biochemist for a large international firm in Paris. Her life is good, although sadly lacking in the love department. She is happy with her job until she falls while running on her company’s track and is rescued by the most handsome man she’s ever seen, and she’s seen her share, starting with her brothers. Disoriented, she is shocked into awareness when she feels his hand on her face, as he says, “Look at you,” in a thick, gravelly accent that goes straight to her heart. Without thinking, she agrees to let him accompany her to the hospital, a decision that has her questioning her sanity, even while he draws her like a moth to flame. There is no resisting the pull, even knowing she might get scorched in the end.
These three brothers and the one sister are the youngest of the LaCasses. They are opinionated, alpha males and one female, whose brand of loving is like nothing you’ve encountered before. Sit back, grab a glass of wine and get ready to become HOT and BOTHERED!

Footsteps In The Sands

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.
