If you could go back in time and redo one thing in your life, what would it be?

The Watchmaker’s Doctor is the first novella in Erase and Rewind, a collection for new adults that delves into the biggest regrets of the dying, and follows their stories of what might have been.

Anaya, a disillusioned, thirty-five-year-old doctor, has been looking after Gregory, a retired watchmaker and resident of an aged care facility. On her last visit, he gifts her his final creation, an exquisitely-crafted watch, knowing she will die tragically that very day. It will turn back time.

With one condition: she must choose the time and place to reset the clock, and redo just one thing in her life. Regrets, it seems, are easy to realise when you’re dying. Hers was dropping out of school at seventeen.

But what if, after one small change, her life would become much worse than it was? Or unthinkable disasters result from a single step off her path? When the alternative is die now, her choice makes itself. And so, Anaya’s story begins with her last thought. Would I have done this if I had any option but the grave?

Would you?

As her death replayed in her mind, her need to escape intensified exponentially. Yet she flopped next to him, unable to move a single limb.
“Ana, you’re safe now.” Greg tried to hold her by her shoulders. 
Her heart was already pounding and she was on the very edge of the bench. But that tipped her over. Adrenaline surged through her veins and propelled her into action. She threw his hands off and pushed back.
He breathed deeply and waited like time itself stood still at his command. An eerie calm appeared to emanate from him. “Look at me, Ana.”
As if in a trance, she obeyed. The pond’s reflection of a sudden break in the clouds illuminated him. He appeared incandescent, his face as soft as velvet and eyes teeming with empathy.
She’d seen Greg every day for more than a year, and even confided in him. He would never hurt her. Had he saved her? Realizingthe rhythm of her heart now mimicked his, her breathing slowed, but her mind continued to reel.
“You did have an accident, but the watch I gave you turned back time.”
Anaya’s eyes hunted for the van on the road but found it deserted and the lamp post undamaged. She didn’t know how long it took her to tear her eyes from the scene and for her brain to digest the figures on the watch, but it crawled by like a millennium. 
Anaya couldn’t process anything beyond one word. How? She wasn’t sure if she said it aloud. 
“I’ve spent most of my life studying time, its history and movement. I’ve made hundreds of watches for my customers, but couldn’t part with this one. As I learned more, I modified it. With every passing year, I tinkered with it. Until, at last, I found a way to rewind time…” Greg paused. “That was forty years ago. Since then, I have travelled back to that day and lived my life over and over. I’ve done all that I had to do. I decided that I wanted to pass on that chance to someone else, and you seemed like you could use it.”
She lowered her gaze to the pavement. That’s insane. But even if it were true, why choose me?
Greg must have recognized her doubt because he interjected. “I don’t think asking why is the right way to spend the little time you have left. You have a second chance at life, Ana. Choose one moment to return to and do it over. The watch rewound to the minute I gave it to you. But as its maker, I can take you back to any time in your life.”
How about the day I was born?
“I don’t know if my long years are a blessing or a curse. But I’ve seen many lives pass mine by, and I think the point is to leave this world with no regrets. The question you should be asking yourself is, what’s yours?”

Release Blitz: Beneath Deception (Unbreakable Series #1) by A.L. Long @allong1963

Title: Beneath Deception
Series: Unbreakable #1
Author: A.L. Long
Genre: Adult, Erotic Suspense
Published: May 30, 2018
Award winning author of the Shattered Innocence Trilogy

Everyone has a story and for Xavier London, he preferred to keep his hidden. As ruthless as he was, he still had morals and those morals included betraying the one man who saved his life. He never thought that meeting one woman could change everything.

Tessa Sands never knew the truth about her life, nor did she ever question it. The only life she knew was the one she was taught, disciplined by the man who raised and groomed her to be only his. But, when another man entered her life, she slowly begins to discover that she had been deceived from the start. Can she find true love or will his secrets get in the way?

Their love for each other will be tested. Only they can determine if love will win.

Some would call me a little naughty but I see myself as a writer of spicy thoughts. Being an erotic romance writer is something that I never imagined I would be doing. There is nothing more rewarding than to put your thoughts down and sharing them. I began writing three years ago and have enjoyed every minute of it. When I first began writing, I really wasn’t sure what I was going to write. It didn’t take me long to realize that romance would be my niche. I believe that every life deserves a little bit of romance, a little spice doesn’t hurt either. When I am not writing, I enjoy the company of good friends and relaxing with a delicious glass of red wine.

Lost in the Shadows Excerpt © Tracie Douglas 2018

I only need one reason to say yes, and even though I said no and told him it is a bad idea, the truth is, I wanted to scream "yes” the moment the words slipped from his lips.
As crazy as it sounds and is, this man, this stranger, unnerves and excites me all at the same time. I can’t picture my life without him in it.
“Because I’m not ready to let you go yet,” he murmurs, opening his eyes, letting me see the honesty staring back at me. I gasp at his declaration, and when he continues to talk, I lose my breath. “I will stand by you and protect you. I will give you a good life until all of this can be righted. I will be your friend. I’m not your happily ever after. I’m not the man who can give you the life you dream or the family you want. Our arrangement will be in name only, but I promise, Penny, you will not walk away from our arrangement with a broken heart. I will do everything in my power to protect it.”
I close my eyes and fill my burning lungs with air. His speech started off good, but if he believes I won’t be brokenhearted at the end of all of this, he can think again. I’m already invested, and I can’t seem to figure out when it happened. It’s hard to admit, but he’s already broken my heart a little with his words.
The one thing I can take from his reason is that neither of us is ready to let the other go.

Surviving on caffeine most days, Tracie Douglas lives in the mountains of Southern California with her husband, two children, and one dog. She spends her days chasing children and the fur baby, all while maintaining the illusion of sanity.

Her nights are spent toiling away at the keyboard, creating a world filled with hot men and strong women. She loves to read and write all types of books but tends to lean on the darker side of the spectrum. She’s pretty handy with a crochet hook, too.
