Difficult choices put their budding romance at risk as they juggle Amy’s desire to unlock the secrets of a father she never knew and Brady’s need to tread carefully in order to protect his career.

A single secret beget a layer of lies. Betrayed thrice over by her husband, Anna believes her imploded life will right itself if only she buys a dog. Investigator Frank Caburn has other ideas.

Falling love has never been more difficult!

To succeed, he will have to navigate a land filled with fantastic creatures and Spellshooters, where magic can be bought and sold, to unravel an ancient family secret that could hold the key to defeating an evil the Institute has been fighting for the last five hundred years.

Ethan radiated confidence. His darkly handsome good looks and ocean-blue eyes mesmerized me. But it was the way he looked at me that drew me in. He wasn’t looking at my past or at my scars, but the real me behind all that baggage I was trying so hard to leave behind.

The fulfillment of an outrageous prediction seals the fates of two cousins in this true story that begins on a Caribbean sugar plantation and careens wildly towards the thrones of two empires. The Stolen Girl tells the true story of Aimée Dubucq de Rivery, who refuses to believe she might ever have to face the intrigue and evil that lurks beneath the exotic beauty and opulence of the Ottoman Empire, and her cousin Rose, who mistakenly believes that her marriage to an aristocratic French lieutenant will insure her place in Parisian society. Both will be proven wrong.
In 1783 Aimée is abducted by Algerian pirates and given to the Sultan of Turkey as a gift. The innocent virgin suddenly finds herself in strange and frightening surroundings among five hundred concubines. In order to survive she will need to adopt and master the unfamiliar lifestyle that contradicts everything she ever thought she knew about propriety, morals, and love.
This first book in the two-book series, The Veil and the Crown, follows Aimée from her teenage years on the island of Martinique with her cousin Rose Tascher de la Pagerie (whose name you may recognize).

The majority of Amazon reviews (mostly verified purchases):
Review #1: Glad I took the chance
From the title and the author’s warning that you would need to like twisted, sick stories filled with violence and harsh language, I figured I would not care for the stories. But I looked at the other reviews and saw only positive ones excerpt for a really bad one from a guy who did not read the book but decided from the press release that it would be bad. What a fool he was. I didn’t want to make a decision without at least trying it, so I gave it a chance.
Like I said that guy was a fool. There are some really great stories in here. I also feel the author made a mistake with his warning and title selection. I was expecting a lot of horror and gore filled stories. The stories had a wide range of topics. There was humor, horror, drama, absurdity, and a few that did not really fit into any mold. I felt some of the strongest stories were the humorous ones.
The stories are short. Most took less than ten minutes to read. They were the perfect length to read on a work break, waiting in a doctor’s office, or taking a bathroom break.
One thing that bothered me at times was some of the language. It seems strange that an author that has such a vivid imagination took the easy way with the language at times. Admittedly it fit the story sometimes, but several times, I felt it could have been avoided especially by this author.
Overall these stories will make you think, laugh, or scratch your head at times. I would say ignore the attempts at being shocking and simply have a good time reading these tales of wonder.
Review #2: A fun read, love the surprises!
You never know where the author is taking you. It’s unpredictable original thinking. The stories are short too, which is great. It’s not for children but a great read for adults who want something a little off kilter. A welcome addition was the humor, every now and then you just have to snicker. If someone else can write like this, maybe my imagination isn’t so twisted after all. I’ll definitely be reading these over again.
Review #3: Hang on to your imagination!
I can’t tell you how exited I am to have this writer’s stories in book form to read over and over. His stories are unique, captivating, and so entertaining. His characters get right into my head and make me feel all kinds emotion. They bring me into the story and make me want to keep reading to see how it ends.
Each story is unique and written in a style that truly made me a fan of Tyler Nals. The dialogue is real, the humor is fun, and the twists and turns are entertaining and delightful.
If there is one word for this collection of stories, it has to be … memorable. I promise, the stories will stay with you and you’ll find yourself recalling the characters and stories long after reading them. If you want to read a book of stories that will grab your emotions, Twisted Sick is the one to get. I promise that you’ll be glad you did!
Review #4: A wild, wacky and fun ride
I’m not a big fan of horror so I was on the fence, but only a few stories in here are really horror. I don’t even know how to classify most of them. The only word I can think of is entertaining. The title of the first story Writing Tools gave me the wrong idea. I thought it would be about how to write or something else boring. I was way off. It was a highly entertaining story as was almost every story in the book.
Reading this book is like going to a carnival: fear, fun, excitement, strange and interesting characters. I’m not the easiest person to please, but I would definitely recommend this one, especially if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary.
Review #5: Fantastic Sick & Humorous Tales
Twisted Sick is a group of fantastic stories! Some of the stories are truly scary stories and some of them are funny stories with a twist. The stories remind me of the Alfred Hitchcock stories I remember from my childhood.
My favorite was called “Newborn” where a lady gives birth to an old man. The ending is hysterical!
Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down.
I’m going to look for more books by Tyler Nals in the future!
Review #6: A MUST READ!!! Twisted Sick by Tyler Nals
Absolutely LOVED this book!!! Tyler Nals pulls no punches with his wide range of short stories, if you can’t handle bad language or sexual situations, this is not the book for you!! BUT you will miss out on some amazing stories!!!
This has to be the most entertaining book I have read in a long time.
Hopefully, Tyler will be reading the reviews on this book, so I leave with this…
Tyler, YOU ROCK!!!
Review #7: This will be one of your favorite books!
I’m pretty sure that one of these stories will be the best story you have ever read. I found my favorite in here and there isn’t one story that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. A great diversity and a lot of surprises await you. I can’t recommend a book any more highly than I do this one. You won’t be disappointed!
Review #8: Surprisingly Fantastic
It’s not until you’re halfway through the book that you realize how appropriate this title is. This collection of short (very short) stories reveals the twisted and talented mind of Tyler Nals.
What I loved:
– fantastic humor
– creative originality
– awesome banter
I’ve never really been a fan of flash fiction, but this collection may have changed my mind. I really enjoyed how they were arranged, and found myself smiling throughout most of this read. A very enjoyable book that I will be sure to read again. And again.
Review #9: Five Stars
Wow–truly twisted and sick. I never wanted the stories to end.

Wyatt moves into the adjoining penthouse, he’s immediately drawn to her, a striking, elusive woman who transitions seamlessly from wood-paneled board rooms to high-stakes, high-risk rescue operations in the most dangerous parts of the world.
Intrigued by her self-possession, aroused by her incredible passion, and disarmed by a vulnerability she cannot hide, Jack pursues her into the nexus of her dangerous present and her enigmatic past.

So strap on a diaper and hop on this roller coaster of hilarity or you may just find yourself on the receiving end of some awkward hip thrusts and middle digit tomfoolery.
