A phone call that changed our lives…
I’ve lived my life in a daze, trying to save someone hell bent on destruction. But when my phone rings and I’m told that Angel, my on again off again boyfriend has OD’d for the second time in two years, I’m so numb. So tired. So when Tor Boler, the sexy Norwegian and drummer of Fok asks me to stay with him, I stay. We were friends and I needed to be held. To be loved. It was just supposed to be one night of reckless passion. One night where I could forget how screwed up my life had become.
…a night of passion with far reaching consequences
I’ve wanted Jamie Sullivan since the day she walked through my tattoo shop eight years ago. There’s a soulfulness to her blue eyes that reminds me of the arctic fjords of home. She calls to me. There’s only one problem standing in our way- Angel Romero. I want her, and she wants me too, she just doesn’t realize it yet.
This time… we’ll get it right.
REVIEW: THIS TIME is the third instalment in Marie Hall’s contemporary, adult Moments romance series. This is tattoo artist Tor Boler and twenty three year old book editor Jamie Sullivan’s story. Although this is the third in the series This Moment can be read as a stand alone. Some of the previous storyline characters play a small role in the story but their history does not affect the premise. Tor and Jamie were first introduced in book two-RIGHT NOW-as Lili’s coworker and her best friend.
Told from alternating first person POV (Jamie and Tor) the focus of the story is Jamie Sullivan. Angel is the boy she once loved but years of addiction, whoring and abuse have finally taken their toll on both Jamie and Angel. When Jamie is forced to walk away one final time she finds herself in the arms of Tor Boler-a Viking of a man- who calls to her heart and her soul. Following a night of sexual passion Jamie will walk away knowing that she is too broken for any man to put back together.
THIS TIME follows Jamie and Tor as they traverse a path where a friends to lovers relationship ends with a happily ever after but not before Jamie’s not so distant past threatens the couple on more than one occasion. Life as they know it is about to change for Tor and Jamie, and Angel is determined to make sure Jamie is his forever.
The relationship between Jamie and Tor is sensual, erotic, loving and committed. Tor has been in love with Jamie for years but believed her heart belonged to someone else. Little did he know that Jamie had been struggling to break herself free of the toxic hold that Angel and his family had on her. Hoping that one day Angel would once again become the boy she had loved, Jamie held on until the bitter end.
The secondary characters are colorful, familiar and add an edge to the story. Guilt plays a major role in the storyline-a role many people will find all too familiar. There are times when one must walk away from the people and places that slowly eat away at your heart and your mind and, in this, Jamie should have walked away years before. Tor is Jamie’s other half and it will take a shocking surprise to open Jamie’ s eye to the possibility of a future with her Norwegian Viking.
MARIE HALL writes a captivating and intense storyline about two people who have loved and lost. There is heartbreak and sorrow; controversy and guilt; love and letting go. THIS TIME is a passionate story where one moment in time can change everything and everyone-a decision, a choice, a path not yet taken-but a chance meeting with you future may all happen-this time!

Ryan Cosgrove and Liliana Delgado are on a collision course with destiny. They don’t know it yet, but before the night is over their lives will be forever changed.
Spending Valentine’s Day at a burlesque bar hadn’t been Liliana’s ideal way of spending a Friday night. She’d much rather be back on campus doing homework… until she meets Ryan. Tall, athletic, and gorgeous, Lili can’t keep her eyes off him, and despite his gruff manners and drunken disposition she’s intrigued.
Ryan’s got demons, and they’re deep, dark, and eating him alive. Regardless of his attraction to the petite brunette he’s tired of fighting, of pretending the last fifteen years haven’t been a daily struggle just to get out of bed every morning. That night he decides to end his pain, to leave it all behind and float away into the blessed darkness of oblivion. But fate has other plans for him, Lily finds and rescues Ryan, determined she’ll not only save his body, but his soul too.
This is their moment…

Sometimes in life….
Things were supposed to get better when Ryan met Lili. I was supposed to move on, get a life… but I’m stuck and lost. Things with my father are not good. There are demons in our closet, big ones. Ones I want to kill him for, I’m seeing a shrink, I’m trying to get better… but my life feels out of control, like I’m a raft adrift on the sea. I don’t know where to look, how to get anchored again, and then I meet Zoe Stone. Something about her draws me out of my rut, makes me laugh for real, smile, and for the first time in years I want to be more. But what will she think when she discovers who I really am?
…all we have…Is Right Now
When Alexander Donovan, aka The Golden Adonis, walks into my tattoo parlor, I know I’ll do anything to make that man mine. There’s an instant connection, a need to know more about him. Everything about him. But there’s also a mystery surrounding the guy, when people look at him they only see the man that laughs, that cracks jokes and makes the world think that everything’s okay, but I see the truth… I see the darkness that lurks so deep inside few would ever recognize it. I want to help him, I want to be with him, now I just have to make him trust me enough to let me in.
Marie Hall is a New York Times Bestselling author who has always held a dangerous fascination for creatures that go bump in the night. And mermaids. And of course fairies. Trolls. Unicorns. Shapeshifters. Vampires.
Scottish brogues. Kilts. Beefy arms. Ummm… Bad boys! Especially the sexy ones.
Then the day came she realized apart from the sexy bad boy she married, there’d be no vampires/shapeshifters/mermaids/fairies/or even stinky trolls in her future unless she wrote about them. More often than not she can be found roaming the wild, lush tropical forest she calls her backyard (a.k.a. Hawaii) and day dreaming constantly about her latest project.
