Some wounds heal. Others leave scars.

Four years ago, Charlene Perigard survived a brutal kidnapping. Now at twenty-two, she’s put that trauma behind her for a promising future with handsome firefighter Ben Jorgensen. But when new trauma strikes, a new nightmare begins.

Sinister threats, a midnight attack, and a deathbed promise drive Charlene to the little town of Creekside, where she encounters a man from her past whom she has long struggled to forget: Clay Morrow—ex-convict and brother of her kidnapper. He’s also the man who once helped save her life.

Despite the odds, Charlene and Clay forge a tentative friendship, unaware of a brooding, mounting danger that seeks to destroy them both. Charlene’s wounded heart must choose between her fiancé and the man whose past is more scarred than her own. But in choosing, she may just lose everything.

“Fast-paced and entertaining . . . This is a must-read for fans of suspenseful fantasy and paranormal romance.” —Night Owl Romance

A lot of bad hands get dealt in Vegas, but E. L. Speare may be holding one of the worst: He’s cursed with the need to commit sins, and if he misses his daily quota, there’s hell to pay—literally. Fortunately, his hometown affords him plenty of chances to behave badly.

But Speare’s newest case really has him going out on a limb. The right-hand man of a notorious crime boss has been found dead in a Dumpster—minus his right hand, not to mention the rest of his arm. What catches Speare’s attention, however, is that the missing appendage was severed clean by a demon-sword, a frighteningly powerful tool of the underworld.

Speare’s out of his element, so he turns to a specialist: Ardeth Coyle, master thief, dealer in occult artifacts, and bona fide temptress. Ardeth’s hotter than a Las Vegas sidewalk on the Fourth of July, but she’s one sin Speare has to resist.

The dismembered corpses are piling up, unimaginable evil lurks in the shadows, and if this odd couple hopes to beat the odds, Speare needs to keep his hands off Ardeth, and his head in the game.

“…an emotional roller coaster…loved every moment.” -Angelle, NetGalley Reviewer

#1 Amazon Bestselling Author

FIRST SHE PULLS A GUN ON HIM. THEN SHE SLUGS HIM. IT’S THE BEGINNING OF A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP…

The worst thing that could happen to anyone has happened to 17-year-old Lacey Robinson–she found the murdered bodies of her mother and sister. Now she and her dad have moved across the country to start over in a new town, Ashford, Massachusetts, where Lacey has three dreams: to conquer her debilitating PTSD, to play good enough high school baseball to get a scholarship, and to stay alive. Because evidently somebody doesn’t like her family.

She’s so not the “popular girl” type–at least not with the popular girls. But she makes male friends easily. Just not with sexy, moody Kade Maxwell, whom she distrusts on sight. And yet…she’s drawn to him both as a person–a mysterious, yet kind person–and in a blind visceral way she’s never known before, not with her last boy friend, not with the array of handsome teammates flocking around her, not even with hot quarterback Tyler, whose friendship with her has the cheerleaders sharpening their claws.

Once Kade gets over the gun and the shiner (just a misunderstanding!), he doesn’t want to let Lacey out of his sight. Because Kade has his own dark past. He and Lacey sense in each other that they’ve both experienced something too horrible to mention–and yet, each guards his or her own private tragedy like a state secret. Until their carefully constructed walls start to crumble. And then the mutual sparks ignite, creating a bonfire of love, hope, and passion.

But love may not be enough–Lacey has enemies not only in her old hometown, but also in Ashford. She can’t forget that the last girl who played varsity baseball in her new school was killed, supposedly in an accident. And that the same team members who harassed and bullied her are now mounting an attack against the new pitcher in town–none other than Lacey herself. She and Kade–and his triplet brothers–must fight their way not only through past tragedy and PTSD, but also through these very real current threats before they can forge a future together.

“The characters are rich and complex, the plot is unusual and inventive, but it’s the delightfully droll, wonderfully witty doses of humor that make the novel such a pleasure.” -Booklist

Five hundred people saw the murder — but no one knows who did it!

On the face of it, this is the simplest murder Blackstone has ever had to solve. The entire audience at the George Theatre saw Charlotte Devaraux stab William Kirkpatrick with a fake dagger. They gasped as he fell. But they gasped even more when they realized this would be his final curtain call. How did the murderer manage to exchange the fake dagger for a real one?

With the help of the brilliant Dr Ellie Carr, a career driven scientist, Blackstone is able to determine that this dagger had not only been exchanged for a real one but had been laced with a most deadly poison. But what is the source of this exotic poison? And who is the mysterious little old man who keeps appearing on the edges of the investigation?

Assisted by the amiable Sergeant Patterson, Blackstone follows the trail of the killer from the theatre to the world of the Victorian freak show and into the depths of a lunatic asylum. And though he does not know it, another murder is now brewing. Will he find this killer in time?

With a cast of unusual suspects, all of which have the motive and the wherewithal to commit the crime, Blackstone struggles to find which is truth and which is merely part of the act.

“This world is dark, the characters are twisted and I was completely hooked.” -Feeling Fictional

Amazon Bestselling Author

Would you rather die a hero, or live as a wanted criminal?

Ex-con Captain Caleb Shepperd believes being good is overrated. All he wants is to smuggle illegal cargo through the nine systems and live a prosperous (likely short) life on the wrong side of the law.

But there’s a problem with that plan. The priceless synthetic stowaway on his ship is a distraction he doesn’t need.

Torn between selling her and tossing her out the airlock, Shepperd fails to realize the synth is a killer, and he’s the one locked in her sights.

In a world where only one thousand synthetics were built, synthetic number One Thousand and One should not exist. She is no ordinary synth. Memories locked inside her code could bring Shepperd—and the entire nine systems—to its knees.

Captain Shepperd and the oppressive corporations are about to learn that you can’t hide from the sins of your past, especially when that past has orders to kill.

“Wickedly delicious… What makes Thompson’s book so particularly wonderful is the way it accomplishes the detective novel’s covert mission of urban analysis and social criticism.” -San Francisco Examiner

First comes divorce, then comes murder…

…or at least sweet thoughts of murder. Maggie Longstreet has plenty of them after slimy, ambitious Richard trades her in for a more recent model. She’s so depressed she can barely get out of bed when Larry Hawkins, a seemingly not-at-all depressed acquaintance, commits suicide out of the blue. Suddenly Maggie goes on high alert, remembering something her evil ex said about Larry—something highly suspicious.

And from there, it’s just a short segué to a bracing new development:

“When some women get divorced they go back to school, I thought. Some do volunteer work at the hospital, or join communes and learn to birth calves. Some have affairs with inappropriate men. My new interest is burglary. Maggie Longstreet, former wife and mother, past president of the Museum Guild, now starting a career as a second-story woman.”

Fortunately, Maggie isn’t alone in her adventure—a very attractive, much younger man proves a lot more fun than Richard ever was. In fact, the real delight of this witty, sly mystery is seeing Maggie come alive again after a suffocating marriage. Set in the’70s, it has a bit of that Mad Men feel of women on the brink of something big. And completely unexpected.

You know Maggie’s going to be okay when she says: “I’d rather have had one of those cute little guns with a mother-of-pearl handle, but this (diamond pin) would have to do. I concealed it in my hand. At least now I was armed—or pinned.”
