The Return of Jason Foxx


Book Description

AN ADULT COMING-OF-AGE NOVEL THIRTY-THREE-YEAR-OLD JASON FOXX FINALLY-FINALLY-KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS. He wants to get his damaged brother, Brian, back on his feet. He wants to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend Adele and be a dad to her son, Stephen. And after nine years of teaching, he wants at last to set aside his own traumas-his imprisoned conman father, a mother who abandoned the family years before she died-and become a principal at a high school for troubled kids. Kids he can save, like his teachers saved him. But things don't always work out the way you want. When his observation lesson is sabotaged by Mr. Rastik, a fellow teacher with his own agenda, Jason finds his plans slipping from his grasp. With a number of teachers due to be excessed next year, Rastik is ruthless, ready to do whatever it takes-manipulation, even blackmail-to keep himself at Central South High School. Then there's Jason's father, locked away in West Virginia, holding onto the power of attorney Jason needs should something go wrong with Brian. He'll give it up, he says, if Jason will fl y to Florida into a life he never knew his father lived. If Jason is to build the home he wants with Adele and Stephen-if he's to maneuver past Rastik's machinations and at last step out from the shadow of childhood-he'll need to understand that things are not always as they seem. Maybe he's not the only one struggling. He's not the only one growing. And whether brother, son, father, partner, principal, or teacher, he still has quite a lot to learn.

Return to Bloodmoon Manor


Book Description

Back into the mouth of hell... Daniel and Hannah Reynolds are newly married with their first child on the way when a notice comes from a lawyer saying that the remaining member of the Bonavaris clan has died and willed Bloodmoon Manor and all its possessions to Hannah, her former maid and cook. While Hannah can't fathom the reason for the bequeath, the notion of selling the manor and the valuable items inside it begins to grow inside her like an obsession. She and Daniel have begun their married life with little more than outstanding debts from his medical education--debts that come due around the same time as the birth of their baby. After a lifetime of poverty, Hannah refuses to allow her child to face the kind of scavenging, hand-to-mouth existence that had led to her employment at the horrible Bloodmoon Manor in the first place. Unable to convince his beloved wife to forget about returning to Bloodmoon Cove to secure a future for their family, Daniel has no choice but to follow her into what he aptly calls "the mouth of hell"--a place Hannah just barely escaped with her life last time. Daniel's worst fears are justified when the doors of Bloodmoon Manor slam shut behind them. They've been lured here deliberately, and the horrors that haunt the dark, evil manor aren't willing to let Hannah leave ever again...
