Growing up hard and fast on the mean streets of Chicago, Thorn McKinney didn’t have a prayer—until tragedy inspired him to join the seminary. Now the time has come to take his vows, and yet he’s haunted by the woman he can’t leave behind: his best friend’s little sister. Despite Thorn’s promises that he’d keep her safe, she’s going through hell. And now he finds himself torn between duty and desire, entranced by the seductive pull of her trusting eyes, innocent heart, and sinfully sweet curves.

Trying to let Thorn pursue his calling, Rose Gallagher has been hiding some things: namely her abusive boyfriend and her job as a stripper. But when she hits rock bottom, Thorn is there for her—and now there’s no denying the raw temptation that draws them together in their darkest moments. Rose may have found salvation in his strong arms, but she knows that Thorn must choose his own path: in the church, or in the warm embrace of a woman’s love.

“This one definitely stands out. It’s extremely well written…” -Sknoell

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

When Lilah Murphy started serving drinks at the exclusive Platinum Club, she never expected she would be on the menu.

Biotech billionaire Gavin Stanton had one taste of the new, curvy server and his craving could never be satisfied until he had her fully. Completely.

Eternally.

Fate brought them together, but a centuries-old secret could tear them apart, for the Stanton family holds a shifter legacy that no human has ever threatened.

Until now.

Gavin Stanton is the billionaire CEO of a Boston biotech firm. He’s also a werewolf, the son of a large, ancient family with roots in the British aristocracy. His work is his life. But then he feels the Beat—an irresistible urge to mate with Lilah, a beautiful human who inflames his passions like no other—and he abandons everything he thought he knew in his need to claim her.

Lilah Murphy is broke and desperate. All she wants is a job to support herself, her sister, and her ailing mother. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a rich, powerful guy who would discard her after a few hot nights together and get her fired at her new, high-paying job. But she, too, feels the Beat. She hears him in her mind, feels him in her soul, and the urge to answer the ancient call is undeniable. Is she strong enough to embrace his secrets—and her own?

Price: $0.99 Save $5.00
Make sure price is still $0.99 before clicking “Buy”.

Murder, mayhem, and Mazzio continue at lightning speed in this second set of three Bone Series Medical Thrillers from the Lambs.

RN Gina Mazzio is sometimes battered, but never daunted in her life-threatening pursuit of individuals and groups who would do harm to her patients and co-workers.

This action-packed, shocking, and take-no-prisoners medical thriller series is definitely not for the faint of heart. Fans of the more hard-boiled medical thrillers (and also of Patricia Cornwell) will eat it up … as will lovers of, strong women sleuths, hospital mysteries, and all medical fiction, especially fans of Tess Gerritsen, Carolyn McCray, Eileen Dreyer, Lisa Genova, and Robin Cook.

BONE of CONTENTION (#4)

Gina returns to Ridgewood Hospital after a near-death experience while working with fiancé Harry Lucke as travel nurses in Nevada’s barren gold country. Now, she’s assigned to the Ob/Gyn Women’s Health Clinic.

An outbreak of mystifying post-abortion deaths among Clinic patients puts Gina on the trail of unknown perpetrators. Her relentless investigation soon makes her the target of a fanatical couple who kidnap and attempt to kill her to keep from being found out.

BONE DUST (#5)

An influenza epidemic slams San Francisco, pushing medical facilities to and beyond normal limits. The chaos masks deadly blood-letting by a sociopathic hospital phlebotomist.

Gina, distracted by a serious breakup with her longtime fiancé, Harry Lucke, and on the brink of a new romance, misreads the full danger of a stalking that leads to the murder of another Internal Medicine nurse.

Gina’s investigation into the killing of the nurse, along with trying to find out why flu patients are dying unexpectedly, makes her the new prime target of the phlebotomist stalker.

Kylara Vatta is the only daughter in a family full of sons, and her father’s only child to buck tradition by choosing a military career instead of joining the family business. For Ky, it’s no contest: Even running the prestigious Vatta Transport Ltd. shipping concern can’t hold a candle to shipping out as an officer aboard an interstellar cruiser. It’s adventure, not commerce, that stirs her soul. And despite her family’s misgivings, there can be no doubt that a Vatta in the service will prove a valuable asset. But with a single error in judgment, it all comes crumbling down.

Expelled from the Academy in disgrace–and returning home to her humiliated family, a storm of high-profile media coverage, and the gaping void of her own future–Ky is ready to face the inevitable onslaught of anger, disappointment, even pity. But soon after opportunity’s door slams shut, Ky finds herself with a ticket to ride– and a shot at redemption–as captain of a Vatta Transport ship.

It’s a simple assignment: escorting one of the Vatta fleet’s oldest ships on its final voyage . . . to the scrapyard. But keeping it simple has never been Ky’s style. And even though her father has provided a crew of seasoned veterans to baby-sit the fledgling captain on her maiden milk run, they can’t stop Ky from turning the routine mission into a risky venture–in the name of turning a profit for Vatta Transport, of course.

By snapping up a lucrative delivery contract defaulted on by a rival company, and using part of the proceeds to upgrade her condemned vehicle, Ky aims to prove she’s got more going for her than just her family’s famous name. But business will soon have to take a backseat to bravery, when Ky’s change of plans sails her and the crew straight into the middle of a colonial war. For all her commercial savvy, it’s her military training and born-soldier’s instincts that Ky will need to call on in the face of deadly combat, dangerous mercenaries, and violent mutiny. . . .

How far will a man go to protect his family?

When the director of Child Protective Services uses his position to exact a personal vendetta in removing three-year-old Ashley from the Blake’s home, Jeff Blake, a financial advisor, responds to the threats in the only way he feels he can – violently. By the end of the short encounter, three people are dead and Ashley, the daughter, is still taken and placed in temporary foster care, so the tragic fiasco gained Jeff nothing. Or, so it seems.

Matters are further complicated when Amy, the wife and mother, winds up for a brief stay in a mental ward due to the trauma she witnessed in her home. It seems as though everything is against the Blakes. Understandably, the police, as well as the Courts, are not too concerned with the needs of the family. Complete with many twists of fate, the story looks at the common problems of a typical family caught between love and the law.

After selling her home in the suburbs, Lucy Klein decides to pursue her lifelong dream of starting an arts community in the Berkshire Mountains. She envisions a creative oasis where struggling painters, sculptors and musicians visit from around the world. But the dream soon becomes a nightmare when the artists arrive and not a single one can create anything — except trouble, that is.

To make matters worse, Lucy’s ultra-high-maintenance mother, Anjoli is singularly focused on finding a holistic cure for her teacup Chihuahua’s obsessive compulsive, hair-pulling disorder. Rebirthing, acupuncture and white light therapy just aren’t helping poor little Paz. But Anjoli soon has new problems to contend with, like the NYU sorority house going up across the street from her.

Then there’s Lucy’s gorgeous cousin Kimmy who recently married herself in a dress made of disco ball mirrors, and now wants to get pregnant with Ivy League sperm. Deciding sperm banks have too many rules, she decides to go about things the old fashion way — with a roundtrip train ticket to Princeton and a change of panties in her designer purse.

Lest we forget about Lucy’s 84-year-old Aunt Bernice who is grieving the loss of her sister who recently died at Red Lobster. Though she misses her Floridian counterpart, Bernice is not going to let anything stand in her way of exploring brave new worlds –and Brazilian bikini waxes.

Enjoy a wild ride through the world of way over-the-top kiddie birthday parties, puppy psychotherapy and “performance art” weddings with a family so nutty, it will make you appreciate your own!

Between Lucy’s relatives and the artists from hell, it’s a wonder she can focus on her own life.

A catastrophe of biblical proportions, 35,000 years in the making.

The world as we know it is on the verge of destruction.

There is no escape. . . or is there?

The discovery and excavation of a 35,000 year old city hidden deep within the Transantarctic Mountains releases a pandemic across the globe. Within a few weeks 5 million are dead and another 10 million are about to die. Billions more are certain to die within weeks.

But, what kind of disease only affects members of a certain ethnic group?

Some world leaders are convinced this is a genetic bioweapon, developed and deployed against them for the sole purpose of ethnic cleansing. They convince their followers that enemy governments are behind this and join forces to go to war. The human race stands on the brink of extinction.

The world has slipped into economic and political chaos, stock markets have crashed and shut down, and lawlessness is on the rise. Radical political and ethnic solutions are considered and implemented. Within a matter of days the world will descend into open warfare, more than half of the entire world population will be annihilated on the battlefield of Armageddon. Nuclear warheads and long range missiles have been aimed, military forces have been mobilized … ready to march.

There are those who want this to happen.

Only a handful of people may be able to stop this catastrophe. Will they be able to do it? Will they be allowed to do it? Do they have enough time?

Does anyone besides Sarah Rossler remember the dire warning of the 10th Cycle; that our cycle’s final, civilization-ending catastrophe could be triggered by war?
