An Interview with Dr. Aria DeLuca, Heroine of Flood

Coming June 1 from Wings ePress

TV hostess: Welcome to today’s edition of Who’s Who. My guest today is Aria DeLuca owner of St Francis Animal Clinic. As most of you know, the clinic is located just outside town. Dr. DeLuca, welcome to our show. We appreciate your time.

Aria: I’ve very glad to be here.

TV hostess: Can you tell us a little about your practice?

Aria: Yes of course. I started St. Francis after I got my veterinarian degree. As time went by we expanded our services, and today we offer boarding, and training as well as preventative and sick care.

TV hostess: Isn’t it true that you have a rather unusual employee working at St. Francis? 

Aria: Oh? Who might that be?

TV hostess: Don’t you have an ex-convict working at St. Francis?

Aria: (lips thinning) Yes, I do, but I don’t think there’s anything so unusual about it. He’s paid his debt to society, and with his knowledge of animal behavior I’m lucky to have found him.

TV hostess: I understand you had a break-in at St. Francis a few weeks ago. You don’t suspect your new employee do you?

Aria: (eyes snapping) I certainly do not! No wonder so many ex-convicts return to prison. No one will give them a chance to start over. Be careful what you say. My father is a lawyer, and he might call this slander.

TV hostess: Please excuse me. I didn’t mean to offend. Dr. DeLuca, thank you for coming today.


Aria: (voice cold) You’re welcome.

Excerpt

You made it---you finally made it! You are the guest of honor at the fabulous bash thrown to celebrate the audacious decision you’ve made to pursue a life of abundance, power and liberty. When it comes to getting what you want out of life, the single most important thing to know is that God has already blessed your path. Joshua 1:3 says, “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.” (NLT) Now, with the realization of this beautiful promise, all you must do is choose. Choose to construct a masterpiece life built on a deep understanding of the God you serve and your Divine purpose. I love to call this your MasterPurpose. Clarity about your MasterPurpose will impact how you will show up in the world and leave your mark as an Entrepreneur. 

When you decide to step out of your own way and into beautiful alignment with your MasterPurpose, all things are possible. This is a brave c hoice and not for the scared, timid or weak leader. It is a declaration to the world that you believe your life, purpose, message and talents are worth fighting for. To reach our fullest potential, we must train ourselves to have an audacious mindset, which frames how we perceive and respond to situations especially adversity. An audacious mindset is the defining factor between experiencing a life of abundance or scarcity. Remaining connected to your MasterPurpose requires a shift in your thinking and actions. It requires a deep and intimate relationship with God.

I yearn to be close and in the presence of God. The battle wounds and scars of life have taught me one important lesson. As I have matured as a believer, I have learned that I am nothing without an intimate relationship with my creator. For in his presence, all things are made new. More specifically, in his presence all believers have access to God’s peace, love, mercy and wisdom. Our close relationship with God activates our MasterPurpose, the Divine plan for our life. He shows us the desires of His heart for us and is the source of our own ambition. He inspires us to dream big and desire radical success in every area and level of our lives. Your MasterPurpose could be a ministry, an entrepreneurial venture, a book, a family or even a school. Your MasterPurpose births your entrepreneurial venture. It could be a book, a clothing company, a law practice or even a school. It is the idea you believe God has commissioned you to lead to benefit His people. We all have been called to be leaders of faith entrusted with an assignment to fulfill while here on Earth.

Only A Viscount Will Do

Title: Only a Viscount Will Do
Series: To Marry a Rogue
Author: Tamara Gill
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017
Lady Alice Worthingham never conforms to Society’s norms. Ever. She loves adventure, new experiences, and approaches life with a sassy attitude Society can take or leave. But even for her, robbery by a highwayman is a bit much.
Lord Arndel, Lady Alice’s neighbor, is playing a dangerous game—acting the proper viscount by day and the Surrey Bandit by night. And to brazenly steal from the woman who’s captured his attention is no mean feat, or the wisest of moves.
When Lady Alice learns the truth, the viscount finds that when a well-bred woman seeks revenge, she’ll make a gentleman thief pay for his crimes with everything…including his heart.

She pulled back and stepped out of his arms altogether. Callum let her go with regret and consoled himself with the fact that her eyes looked heavy with desire and, if he wasn’t incorrect, a little awe. “I shouldn’t have done that.” “Why not?” He shrugged, the action in some way releasing his taut muscles. “You’re not worried about your reputation, are you? I thought you were a highwaywoman and nothing else.” “I am, but I’m also a woman who should not have done that.” “Are you a woman of rank?” Callum watched are her eyes darkened in warning. He smirked. “Preferably, I would like you to come back here and do it again.” Her mouth opened on a gasp, and he strode up to her, clasped her face, and kissed her hard, quick, and deep, before pulling back and bowing. “I hope we see each other again.” Alice nodded and walking over to her horse in what looked like a daze, mounted quickly, and joined her sister. “I’m sure we will, Lord Arndel, and sooner than you’d like, if you continue this type of thieving lifestyle. Do I make myself clear?” “Very,” he said, watching as the women turned their mounts and cantered down the road before turning into the trees. Callum swore, running a hand through his hair. For all his teasing of the little minx, she’d still run off with his portable blunt and now he would have to send word to London and notify those his deceased cousin owed money to, that the debt would not be paid. Not with the jewels that had been required, at least. Damn it!
