Colton Stone is a newly traded tight end whose reputation is as battered as his football helmet. When he receives a vacation invitation from his new teammates, he accepts. There he collides with Dr. Lillian Morgan, a pediatric cardiovascular surgeon, and doesn't know what to think.

A widow with two children, Lilly is looking forward to her friends' wedding. When she meets Colton Stone, his arrogant attitude only makes her long for the love she took for granted. Lilly struggles between letting go of her perfect past for an uncertain future.

Strange events occur, out of the realm of normal consciousness. When black energy touches their world Colt and Lilly become the pawns of the immortal Greek gods. Is the love developing between them natural, or part of a larger prophecy?

EXCERPT 2: (242 words)

Lilly looked
down at the football, lying prone and guilty in the sand, as realization hit

“Oh my God, Que!
Are you okay?”

She examined
Que’s head and neck checking for injuries, with rapid authority. A small goose
egg already formed just above her right temple. A tiny cut opened in her
eyebrow, from her broken sunglasses now laying in the sand, causing a small
bead of blood to well up.

Used to the
recklessness of her son and his friends regarding the sport, Lilly turned,
gearing up for an impressive tongue lashing to teenagers.

“What in the
hell...” she bellowed, turning around and smacking her face into the sweaty
muscular chest of a massive redhead. Refusing to let the fourteen-inch height
difference and the hundred and sixty pounds of additional weight intimidate
her, Lilly balled her small fists on her hips, shifted her gaze up, and
narrowed her eyes.

“What in the
hell is the matter with you? You’re on a crowded beach with a bunch of young
children and families. You’re a grown-ass man. Can’t you catch a football?”
When he stared down at her in fascinated disbelief, she continued. “There is a
wide-open park just over there,” she said, stabbing her finger in the general
vicinity. “Maybe you and your little friends”— she looked over at all the
massive men in his group, but continued undaunted—“should go over there and
pull your heads out of your asses.”

About the Author:

Award-winning author, Jeny Heckman, was born in Bellingham, Washington, and was the youngest of two daughters. She met her husband, Jeff, in August 1992, and eloped three months later, at Magen’s Bay, on St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.

She wrote her first book, the Catch, in a few short months but took several years before she gained the courage to self-publish it at her son’s urging, and her love for writing began.

In 2018, Jeny knew her next project would be a series that showed adults could have adventures in the paranormal-fantasy genre too. So, she created the Heaven & Earth series, a story of doomed Greek gods and their only salvation, their modern-day descendants. Her first book of the series, the Sea Archer, was immediately picked up by the New York publishing house, the Wild Rose Press, and won, “Best in Category” from the 2018 Chanticleer International Book Awards.

In the year 2020, Jeny released, Dancing Through Tears, a short story from the anthology, Australia Burns: Volume Two, highlighting the Route 91 massacre from the perspective of one family at the concert, and at Mandalay Bay. She also intends to release, the Warrior’s Progeny, and Dee’s Cornucopia, in 2020, continuing the Heaven & Earth Series.

Jeny lives in Washington State with her husband of over twenty-eight years.

  1. How long did it take you to write your book?

    1. Good morning Bernie! It took about six months to write it, then editing, marketing and COVID all had their say. So, it took a full year to publish. Do you like Greek mythology?
