It may not be how she envisioned her life, but she’s happy. Or so she thinks, until JP re-enters her life. Now she realizes there’s a lot more she wants, including a second chance with JP.
Can these two lost souls finally find forgiveness and Break Away to the future? Or will the shared tragedy of their past tear them apart for good this time?
Lisa B. Kamps is the author of the popular ice hockey series The Baltimore Banners, featuring “hard-hitting, heart-melting hockey players”, on and off the ice.
Lisa grew up with an overactive imagination, strong encouragement from her parents, and an insatiable infatuation with the Peanuts gang. That infatuation—along with an impatience she has yet to outgrow—jump-started her love of writing. After all, why should she be forced to wait a whole week to read the stories of her favorite characters when she could create stories for them whenever she wanted?
That love of writing continued to grow, along with all those voices in her head, even during her assorted careers: first as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department, then a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.
Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons, one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count.

by Vickie Valentine
Genre: Erotic Romance
When I landed the best bartending job in downtown Chicago, the rules were as clear as the Grey Goose martini I mixed for him. Don’t sleep with the patrons. I had no problem with that. Money didn’t impress me. But Damon Baxter’s eyes did. Midnight blue, just like the name of his nightclub. The way they undressed me made me consider risking the most sought after job in the service industry. Nailing the position had been hard. Obeying the rules? Even harder.
Good thing I like it hard. I was never one for following orders. For one night with him, I would have sold my soul to the devil. And that’s exactly what I did. And let me tell you, hell in the company of Damon Baxter was blissfully hot. I offered him a single night of pleasure, but when he demanded another in that deep and sexy whisper, what could I say? He was my boss, and I always aimed to please…when it pleased me.
He didn’t care that I broke his rules. But was I ready to break my own?

At the age of nine, I started writing. I would write poems, even short stories, but never really novels or novellas. This went on for a few years, until I turned eleven. I got cancer, also known as Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and started writing a whole lot more. I put all the pain I was going through, and my emotions into my writing. It made me feel powerful, like I could control something in life.
When I was in BMT (Bone Marrow Transplant) for four months, I wasn’t allowed out of the room. No sunlight, no feel of the cold wind, I can’t even step outside the room once. The only thing keeping me sane in that hospital, was writing. I could escape into a different world, a different life for hours on end.
I’m fifteen and a half now, and love to write a lot. Coming up as of January 2016, I’ll be in Remission for two years, as long as I continue taking my chemo to keep the cancer away. Most people would call me a chameleon writer, a person who writes all genres. I hope I do good in this writing business, as I’d love to share my work with the world, and in turn my story.
If you ever want to know more about me, or just want to talk, here’s a few things I like to talk about
