GAME ON – Lillian Duncan

GAME ON—What Would You Do?

What would you do if someone was out to get you, but you didn’t know who it was or why? That’s the question that faces Lucas McMann in my new political thriller, GAME ON.

game on

He believes he’s the victim of an elaborate and bizarre stalking game. The goal being to ruin his political career. The problem is he has no proof that someone is actually stalking him let alone who it is.

His choices are clear—either quit politics or win the game.

And he plans to win! But he can’t do it alone and he can’t go to those around him since he doesn’t know who to trust. But there is someone he trusts.

If only she’s put their past behind her.

Private Investigator, Nikki Kent makes a living finding out other people’s secrets, but she has one of her own. When Lucas shows up asking for her help, she refuses. She can’t take the chance of her own secret coming to light.

But her new-found Christian faith won’t let her turn her back on someone who is desperate for her help—even if he was the first man to break her heart!

Together they search for answers.

Politics is no game when a stalker nears and there’s nowhere to hide.

A run for the senate is just a step on the road to the White House for Congressman Lucas McMann. But his public profile has put him in the middle of a crazed gunman’s twisted game of stalking. If he wants to win the election and reclaim his life, he’ll need the help of the one person who’d rather leave their past behind them.

Private Investigator Nikki Kent knows how to dig up secrets and discover those who exist in the shadows. She should. She’s good at hiding secrets of her own. Can she risk her own discovery for someone so desperate for her help? For the first man who broke her heart?

With new-found faith, she’ll help Lucas search for the answers. But with the truth comes a danger they must face together.

Christmas Reads, anyone? Part 3

I’m glad to announce the winner of Deborah Raney’s SILVER BELLS…. (Drum roll please)… Tammy Cuevas. I forwarded your email to Deborah and she’ll be in touch with you.

Welcome back to my Christmas Reads series. So far, we’ve had a lot of fun, and there’s so much more on the way. So stay tuned to this blog.

First we learned, in part 1, of people’s different Christmas traditions. Some of these brought way back to my childhood. What great memories! It really warmed my heart.

In part 2, people shared their favourite Christmas songs. Some of them I haven’t heard in such a long time. They were good little memory joggers.

Now we’re moving to part 3, and we have another wonderful writer and her Christmas read. And of course, another question for you. For a chance to win, read on, and answer the following question: What’s at the very top of your Christmas wish list this year?

Today, I have the privilege of sharing with you a novel by Darlene Franklin, An Apple for Christmas. It’s from the Christmas Traditions Series.

First, a little about the author:


Darlene Franklin’s greatest claim to fame is that she writes full-time from a nursing home. She lives in Oklahoma, near her son and his family, and continues her interests in playing the piano and singing, books, good fellowship, and reality TV in addition to writing.

An Apple For Christmas

About An Apple For Christmas:

Ruby Nelson trades her job in the laboratory for teaching in a small girls’ school in Vermont. Twin sisters challenge her position—and their father captivates her imagination. Will the orchard grower graft Ruby onto his heart?

Good luck, everybody. We’ll select a name at random on Friday for a copy of this eBook, and we’ll feature another great read. Until then, be blessed.

The Small Things That Matter Most

Last march, I blogged about my husband who is truly a “romantic” in his own way. While some men love to lavish their ladies with such things as diamonds, chocolate, and flowers (nothing wrong with that), my husband knows what matters most to me are the smaller things in life. Like the time he brought me a large piece of cake from his office party. Why? Because it had a pink flower on it. Or when he stopped at the grocery store to pick up something we needed, and picked up a quart of fresh blackberries at the same time, just because he knows I love them. Recently, he came home with a new “glass” his workplace gave each employee, with the company logo on it. But he didn’t bring it home empty. They have a slush machine at work, so he filled it with my favourite flavour. I rarely drink these, but it was terribly hot, (40C – 104F), and it went down  good! Blue Slushie These are the small things that matter to me; special moments that make my day and make me smile!

Now, I have something bigger to share. I’m celebrating, and giving away three paperback copies of an anthology I’ll mail to random winners. Why? Two months ago, Dawn, a dear writer-friend invited me to the RWAC (Romance Writers of America – Canada Chapter) meeting. I write suspense but thought it’d be a nice drive, and interesting to listen to their discussions.  I was right on both counts. And one topic resonated with me.


I had no idea many writers out there are looking for (and paying) freelance literary translators for their novels. But all the way home (2-1/2-hour drive), that’s all I talked about. (Thanks for listening, and putting up with me, Dawn. You’re a doll). The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea. And it’s something I CAN do! I was always fascinated with languages, and loved learning them. So in grade 11, I chose my career path: Translator. I’d gone to French school since grade 1, so I applied to attend the English High School for my last year so I could improve before I entered college. The school accepted me, but the government denied me entry. As far as they were concerned,  I was French, I HAD TO attend French school. Period!

I honestly felt like the government was robbing me of my dream, so I never pursued it. (I know I could have, but at 17, I rebelled instead). In 1994, I became an “interpreter” for the deaf members of our church. This was the closest I ever came to translation.

Until now

By reigniting this dream, I’ve just chosen a new career path. It feels great and I want you to celebrate this new start with me. I’m giving away three copies of this anthology.

Falling If you love romance stories, you’re in for a treat. There are 41 beautiful true short stories in this book, and one copy could be yours. To enter, simply leave me a comment below, answering this question:

What are the small things that matter most  to you?

I will draw three names at random on Saturday, July 19.  Until then, take care and blessings for a good week.

P.S. Congrats to Carole and Gina, the winners of the giveaway. <><
