This is a spin off duet for Kalli from The Never Series. This book can be read without reading any previous Never books. The book is part of a duet, so the final conclusion will come at the end of book 2.
I’ve spent my life avoiding attachments. I learned early on, from the person who should have loved me most, I only drag others down. So instead, I made it my goal to live in a way that never affected anyone else. I don’t build friendships. I don’t start relationships. I move from place to place, from person to person, never standing still and never putting down roots.
That is, until one day when everything comes crashing down around me and I’m left with the one person who needs me the most. He opens me up and makes me vulnerable.
Three years after losing her family in a car crash, Grace MacKenna is set to inherit her stepfather’s ancestral estate among the mountains of West Virginia.

When William charms Grace into investigating the mystery that led to his death a hundred and fifty years ago, she finds herself drawn into a world of chivalry and honor, but also deception with secrets too dark to speak aloud.
Meanwhile, Clay Baxter, home from service in Afghanistan, fights his own demons and ghosts. When Clay senses Grace falling deeper into the realm of the dead, he seeks to pull her back. But is he too late?
The goal of this book is to open your mind to the new horizons that pallet projects provide to any home improvement project. Pallets are thrown out en masse every single day from supermarkets, department stores and warehouses where they just rot and go to waste. These very same pallets though can make for some of the best building material for any home and garden project and the instructions in this book are to be a guide to show you how to get there!
This book covers innovative yet practical solutions to improving your home and garden. The suggestions and steps presented in this guide are very easy to follow and the illustrations included are also meant as a working aid to successfully completing these projects. The pallet projects contained within this e-book range from very simple, with very little work required to more complex and robust projects that are more time consuming and may require the use of some power tools.

L’atel stared at the power readout in front of him, main and reserve levels both showed zero. “This is not possible, this isn’t supposed to happen,” he spoke out loud, well aware that the others couldn’t
hear him. He and his six passengers were going to die and there was no one in the universe that could save them.
Splashdown tells a different story of first contact with extraterrestrials. L’atel is the pilot of an alien cargo ship who is illegally hauling passengers through our solar system when an accident forces them to crash-land on Earth.
As L’atel and his passengers know, Earth is a primitive planet that has been placed off limits by the Ebens, the self appointed guardians of the galaxy.
