Cara Michal has had to fight every step of the way to earn her place in the glittering seven-figure world of Wall Street. Years ago her hardworking father, a small-time investment adviser, was wrongfully accused of fraud. Now Cara is at the top of her game, supporting not only herself but her mother and brother. The occasional night out dancing soothes Cara’s soul, even as a bitter need for revenge against the man who destroyed her father makes inner peace elusive.

Then, in a moment of heat, Cara kisses a sexy stranger at a party—only later to discover that the man is Branden Duke, her new boss, an infamous operator with a wicked reputation in bed and on the Street. Branden is a man who seemingly has it all—except a woman who connects with him on a physical and emotional level. Now that he’s found Cara, he’s not sure he can let her go, even if he should.

In spite of herself, Cara is drawn to this charismatic guy. He is a challenge like none she has ever faced in her life. Their passion for each other is unquenchable, surprising them both with its ferocity. Even as Cara wonders if she can trust this man with her heart and soul, the ecstasy of their love cannot be denied. But when the past threatens the present, the two are faced with a truth from which they may never recover.

“I zipped through these marvelous adventures like I was being chased by one of Dev’s angry girlfriends. I love this series…perfectly light reading.” -I.B.

Award-Winning Author

Volumes 8-10 in the Dev Haskell Private Investigator series.

Crickett

When the city’s laziest Private Investigator Dev Haskell spots his old flame Karen Riley in The Spot bar, she’s changed–for one thing she’s no longer Karen Riley, now she’s Crickett, and then there’s the stroller with ten month old Oliver. Dev hangs on and does the math: ten months plus nine months equals when?

It seems Crickett’s sometime lover Daryl has been caught in possession of some drugs, and she thinks they may have been planted on him. But five million dollars worth? Tough to hide that much in your pocket. Dev starts looking under rocks and quickly uncovers local crime lord Tubby Gustafson and his psychopathic enforcer, Bulldog. Things seem to go downhill rather quickly from there as Dev finds himself literally running for his life.

Bulldog

When corner cutting, back slapping Dev Haskell loses his friend, Dermot Gallagher in what appears to be a random shooting he takes it personal. But the more he learns, the more questions seem to go unanswered. His old nemesis, local crime lord, Tubby Gustafson seems to be involved or is he? Then there’s ‘Fat Freddy’ Zimmerman, a criminal of underachieving and dubious reputation if ever there was one. Swindle Lawless enters, stripping up a storm under her new stage name, ‘Cougar.’ Jackie Van Dorn, Tubby’s attorney adds a special brand of polished sleaze to the entire affair. And, just when you think things couldn’t possibly get any worse, Tubby’s psychopathic enforcer, Bulldog shows up and seems to have more than a passing interest in Dermot’s death. Dev ends up with only one option, the question is; Will he take it?

Double Trouble

Work is slow for Private Investigator, Dev Haskell so he agrees to make collection calls to octogenarians past due on their coffin payments. He barely lasts the morning before he quits. On his way out the door Dev recommends “reformed” criminal Tommy Flaherty for the job. Since no good deed goes unpunished, that turns out to be a very big mistake and Dev finds himself taken for the ultimate ride.

At the same time, Dev attempts to investigate online tampering with an “Escort” website. Unfortunately, there’s a lot more than pictures of gorgeous women being exchanged and the last people willing to help seems to be Dev’s client Ashley and her thug boyfriend, Tony.

The eighth, ninth and tenth novels in the wise cracking, back slapping, babe magnet Dev Haskell series.

“A gritty thriller that will leave you hanging on the edge of your motorcycle seat…” -itzrissa2u

Shea Stevens is biker royalty. Her father was the president of the Confederate Thunder Motorcycle Club. Under his watchful eye, she learned how to pick locks, disable alarms, and hot-wire cars like a pro. But all that is ancient history. Or so she thought . . .

After a stint in prison, Shea has worked hard to make a quiet, happy life for herself in Arizona. She spends her time bonding with her big-city girlfriend and running her bike shop, Iron Goddess Custom Cycles, with her dedicated team of misfits. But when one of her employees is shot and three of her specially commissioned bikes are stolen, Shea’s new life collides with the criminal underworld she tried to leave behind.

Shea knows better than to trust the police. So, with her Glock on her hip, she takes the investigation into her own hands. Shea’s search for the bike thieves leads her straight to her father’s old gang—and her estranged sister, whose young daughter has been kidnapped by a rival club. The last thing Shea wants is to be caught in the middle of a war—but if she learned one thing from her old man, it’s that when someone comes at you, you push back. Hard. And that’s exactly what she’s going to do.

“Delightful, charming, and heartwarming.” -Wendy Higgins, New York Times bestselling author

Helping her aunt organize a Beltane Festival in a picturesque Highland village seems like the perfect escape from Anna’s second broken engagement and the meltdown that wrecked her legal career. But to succeed in helping the cash-strapped village, she’ll need to overcome dangerous sheep, a disaster of a dog, kilt-wearing villagers and the objections of the reclusive local laird who refuses to open his property to the public for the ancient tradition of the “Sighting.”

For centuries, Loch Fàil in Balwhither has been known to locals as a “thin” place, one where the veil between worlds peels back on Beltane morning to reveal the face of a person’s one true love. The tradition could draw tourists by the busload, but that’s exactly what Connal MacGregor fears will expose the secrets he’s been desperate to keep hidden.

While Anna struggles to mediate between the needs of the village and Connal’s need to protect his identity and his disfigured child, she finds herself falling in love with all of them: Connal and his daughter, the magical glen, the villagers. But day by day, opening themselves to an honest relationship exposes deep scars in both Anna and Connal, and confronting those wounds could finally set them free to love with their whole hearts–or endanger their every chance of happiness.

WHEN YOU CAN’T TRUST ANYONE, WHY WOULD YOU TRUST THE WOMAN YOU LOVE?

‘Nick Davis first saw Daniela Simonici in the American Bar of the Athenee Palace Hotel in Bucharest in June of 1940. He couldn’t take his eyes off her.

But this woman was different…’

1940. Europe is at war and British diplomat Nick Davis is posted to Bucharest. Known as ‘little Paris’ and graced with beautiful boulevards, even an Arc de Triomphe, Bucharest was once a center of fashion, art and culture. But the Nazis have recently arrived, and terror has overtaken the city.

But Nick Davis is not a diplomat; he is a spy. When he rescues the beautiful but mysterious Daniela Simonici, mistress to a German businessman, his life is changed forever. They fall for each other, hard, and soon she is spying for Nick. But who is Daniela Simonici? Who does she really love? And who is she really spying for?

When Wendy Watts left Blue Moon Bay, she vowed never to return to the small coastal town where her parents had abandoned her and her brother. Now she’s a successful Realtor, and a workaholic who stays away from complicated emotions—until her grandmother dies, leaving Wendy the Inn at Blue Moon Bay and mandating that Wendy sell the inn, and put it on the market herself “in person.”

As soon as Wendy arrives in Blue Moon Bay, bad memories, the inn’s poor condition, and her brother’s pleas to save the inn overwhelm her. Then she meets a sexy laid-back stranger on the beach, and Wendy does something she never does . . . she opens up and confides her problems to him. Since Max Huntington’s only in town for one night, Wendy spontaneously kisses him, hoping to be distracted from her troubles for just one evening.

But when Wendy begins the painstaking process of fixing up the inn in order to sell it, Max tells her he’s staying on longer. He’s enchanted by the charming inn and even more with the kisses they shared on the beach. He wants to help her with the repairs, and she reluctantly accepts his offer.

Although she’s determined to remain detached from the allure of her inn, Blue Moon Bay and Max, every repair, every stroll on the beach, and every moment spent with Max, draws her in and reminds her of the local legend she’d believed as a child: that being kissed by the bay under a blue moon will lead to love that lasts forever.

Bay Winchester is having a tough week.

As the local editor of Hemlock Cove’s only newspaper, she just happens to be present when a body is found in an area corn maze. To make matters worse, the police believe the murder may have something to do with the occult.

This wouldn’t be a problem for a normal reporter, but since Bay is descended from a well-known line of actual witches, the town is understandably on edge.

Between the suspicious townspeople, the befuddled police presence and that random hot biker guy that may or may not have something to do with the murder — Bay has her hands full.

When you add the typical family problems, multiplying ghosts — and one monster of a zit that she’s sure came from her aunt’s curse — Bay is just struggling to make it through the week.

Of course, when the killer sets his sights on Bay, things could get a whole lot worse.

He’s a thief with an eye for justice.

A liar with a code of honor.

So, what happens when he finds himself in bed with the enemy?

Mason Graff is an honorable man, a respected businessman, and a brilliant chemical engineer.

He is also a thief.

For his latest job, he flies to South Africa to intercept and steal a batch of blood diamonds before they can be auctioned on the international market. All he has to do is find Margaux Taylor—the heiress to her family’s diamond fortune and business—and steal the stones.

It should have been easy.

But someone else has their eye on the Taylor Diamonds. And before he knows it, Mason is playing rescuer rather than robber. The two strangers soon become lovers, each unable to resist the other’s beguiling appeal.

Now, Mason faces an impossible choice. Does he betray his friends—and the cause to which he’s devoted his life—or lose the only woman he’s ever loved?
