Praise for Titanic: Legacy of Betrayal:

Titanic: Legacy of Betrayal moves along at a nice clip, full of intrigue and mystery. . . Thankfully, this novel does not insult our intelligence, but carries the reader along on an exciting ride through the intricacies of past and present, revealing depravity, nobility, courage, and cowardice, but without illusions of grandeur. In this work we see the simple realities of the human heart. Thank you for this delightful read!

Another Titanic story? We are being inundated. But a friend recommended the book and I love reading on my Nook, so I took a chance. I am so glad I did. This story happens in April, 2012 with intelligent, well-written flashbacks to April, 1912 when the Titanic sank. . . . Both tales were riveting. . . I squirmed as the characters made one selfish decision after another. The old deeds went on to affect generations of one family. To see how far-reaching our actions can be is definitely something that people should be aware of. The truth of this maxui is not pounded forth with a didactic sledgehammer. Rather the authors allow the events in the plot line expose the consequences. This is a great read. Take time to enjoy the story as well as a time of reflection on the loss of so many brave souls.

I was totally captivated! The writing was so descriptive that I felt I was living the story. I was anxious to have the story resolved but yet I did not want it to end. 

                                                                                    Review from

The historical research shows and blending the fictional story with known historical stories and facts makes it all seem real and true. The intertwining of human emotions carried me along.

                                                                                    Review from

I completed reading Titanic: Legacy of Betrayal a few days ago. I have always been fascinated by stories of the Titanic, but this one is a classic. Loaded with accurate historical facts, suspense, intrigue and romance this is truly a “Must Read”.

                                                                                    Review from

I really got wrapped up in this story and the characters. This is a good read. Moving! Gripping! Made me see that disaster in a whole new light. I highly recommend this. Take a trip into the past of a world wide tragedy but see it from a contemporary perspective. These authors really take you right into the scene.

I’d like for you to feel my pain today on how your book, Titanic: Legacy of Betrayal, has put me WAY behind my intended schedule for the week! Shame on you two for being fab writers . . . I’ve been putty in your hands!!!! OH MY! What a well-written page turner! Excellent story, excellent way to tell the story, and excellent ability to hold the reader’s attention . . . enjoyed your work and enjoyed the fantasy of escape. Now, however, I’m looking for a Xanax vending machine because my anxiety level is over the top as I look at all I didn’t get done!!! LOL I refuse to look for anymore of your eBooks…before bedtime, anyway! 🙂

                                                                                    Review from

The authors took an overworked subject and wrote it in a fresh, captivating way. The added dash of mystery flavored the good writing and kept me reading. (I’d call it a page-turner, but it was an electronic copy!)

You’re a Charmer, Mr. Grinch By Paula Moldenhauer

*You’re a Charmer, Mr. Grinch was a finalist for Novella of the Year in the American Christian Fiction Writer’s Carol Awards*

Warn the rich people of this world not to be proud or to trust in wealth that is easily lost. Tell them to have faith in God, who is rich and blesses us with everything we need to enjoy life. (I Timothy 6:17, CEV)

Retired police officer Rick Stanton dons a Grinch costume for the holidays and “patrols” Christmas, Florida to promote the festive town. Everyone falls under his charm except the person he most wants to impress—Postmaster Edie Hathaway. Rick wants to be loved for himself, not his secret; and his silence confuses Edie, stirring up her painful past and threatening her secure future. The Grinch is stealing Edie’s heart, but will Edie learn to trust him before he gives up on love?
