“Another amazing set of stories, you just keep on giving them and they keep getting better! Keep them coming Elle!” – Kim J.

USA Today Bestselling Author

More of Mae Forester’s nephews! Grizzly bear shifters steam up the pages in these swoon-worthy paranormal romances. From trespassers with hidden agendas to curvaceous women who are ready to take a chance, the stories in this collection will capture your heart.

Cross

Cross del Cruz is a former Compliance Enforcer with the Shifter Council. He did his duty. He enforced the Council’s will around the country and even out of the country. Stress the word former, because all he wants now is to be left alone. He’s been living in his cabin on Bear Canyon Mountain Range, overlooking Bear Canyon Valley and enjoying the solitude of the forest. The quiet. The simplicity. The drama free environment that doesn’t involve other shifters. Not even family.

Except now Mae Forester, who has dubbed him as one of her “nephews” has decided she needs his help. He can’t turn Mae down, not when she gave him and his brothers a home during the worst days of their lives.

He didn’t expect Ariadne Fueller. Who could ever expect that curvy spitfire. She flipped his world upside down.

Before meeting her, Cross never would have called his existence lonely—until he met her.

Lance

Lance del Cruz has just finished his tour with the Shifter Council Compliance Unit. Being an Enforcer wasn’t difficult, it was too easy, actually. He’s had his share of hunting rovers and doling out justice for the Shifter Council. He’s going home to the cabin he’s only managed to visit in short spurts for the last four years while he served the Council.

He’s making one stop on the way to the cabin, to say hi to Mae, the one who gave Cross and his brothers a home during their younger, darker days.

Except Mae has a favor to ask him. And there’s this other little complication… A luscious, curvy thing called Mac—short for MacKenzie. Damned if he can resist her.

Judge

Judge del Cruz followed in his older brothers’ footsteps, serving in the Shifter Compliance Unit. He never thought much about returning to the mountain range where he spent so much of his teen years. Those were the happiest days of his life, but being an Enforcer allows him to stay too busy to dwell on any of his past.

But the call to return to Bear Canyon Mountain Range is too powerful. So he packs up, ready to see his own cabin at the top of the range.

What he didn’t plan on, seeing, the curvy bootilicious Alanna who pushes his buttons, in all the wrong ways—and yet by damn, in all the right ones too!

But when a naval frigate is sent to enlist her services and transport her to Malta, Jane is horrified. Haunted with terrible memories of an earlier voyage, she has no intention of putting herself under the protection of the Admiralty ever again.

Sparks fly when captain and code breaker find they have different ideas on how to handle a French attack, a malicious chaplain, and boisterous midshipmen.

Duty and desire collide as they approach Malta, but Jane is determined that her judgment will not be clouded by Adam who, once he has despatched his Rebellious Cargo, will sail out of her life again. But, as the ship docks, Jane’s life becomes a nightmare and she is forced to gamble that Adam is the only person she can trust.

As passion battles with duty, will future orders throw them together or tear them apart?

I am Levy Michaels. Once my kind were the hunters—now we are the hunted.

Supernaturals are out of the closet but I have to stay hidden because of the type of magic I possess. I’m a Legacy. It sounds like the title should come with reverence, a trust fund, or at the very least a cool backstory—instead it comes with a death sentence.

I have to hide in plain sight and pretend to be just human. I’m pretty good at it. I live a simple and somewhat normal life, and I work in antique acquisitions. Everything’s going fine until a dangerous and enchanted dagger that was once in my possession is stolen. I didn’t think things could get any worse until I woke up next to a dead shifter, fae, and mage, without any memory of the past twenty-four hours.

Considered guilty of murder by most of the magical community and humans, I must work with Gareth, the sexy and dangerous leader of the Supernatural Guild. If he’s as good as rumored, it’s only a matter of time until he discovers the truth about me—then being found guilty of murder is the least of my worries.

“If you want to be entertained, get angry, laugh, cry, feel every range of emotion possible and still find out you actually believe in love and family, this book is definitely for you!” -Sharon S.

According to the front-page photo in the (New York) Daily News, my father was “Murdered Gangland Style.” I was three years old.

The assassination was most likely ordered by a mob insurance broker in order to collect on a large life insurance policy that my father provided as collateral for a business loan. After my father’s death, my distraught mother began a downward spiral into substance abuse from which she never recovered. The insurance broker, later convicted of another killing while under witness protection, was never charged with my father’s murder.

Based on those events, I’ve written a time-travel novel, “A Tale of Two Times,” about how a middle-aged son battles to save his younger parents’ previously doomed lives.

In present-day Florida, Billy Volante leans against a large oak tree in his backyard, only to keep falling—through the tree — into 1961, exactly fifty-six years into the past, into the same Gulf Coast resort town where he now resides and where his parents took winter vacations.

Billy and his free-spirited girlfriend, Carrie Anne, decide to pose as a married couple to warn his young father, Johnny Volante, of the looming 1964 murder. Seeking to build a friendship before revealing his identity, the older Billy takes his father on a fishing trip, only to stumble upon a vacationing mob attorney, Herman Goldman, who will order the future murder.

When Goldman meets Billy, things change.

Will Johnny Volante believe Billy, a man more than twice his age, is his son?

If Billy saves his father’s life, what becomes of his future and the future of the girl he loves?

Will Goldman complicate things, even more, by adding another target to Billy’s lifesaving mission?

Obviously, there’s only one way to find out…

“…engrossing from the first chapter. The world of the kami is beautifully fantastic and delicately drawn…A Mortal Song has lots of magic, lots of heart, and lots to love.” -Kendare Blake, NYT bestselling author

Sora’s life was full of magic—until she discovered it was all a lie.

Heir to Mt. Fuji’s spirit kingdom, Sora yearns to finally take on the sacred kami duties. But just as she confronts her parents to make a plea, a ghostly army invades the mountain. Barely escaping with her life, Sora follows her mother’s last instructions to a heart-wrenching discovery: she is a human changeling, raised as a decoy while her parents’ true daughter remained safe but unaware in modern-day Tokyo. Her powers were only borrowed, never her own. Now, with the world’s natural cycles falling into chaos and the ghosts plotting an even more deadly assault, it falls on her to train the unprepared kami princess.

As Sora struggles with her emerging human weaknesses and the draw of an unanticipated ally with secrets of his own, she vows to keep fighting for her loved ones and the world they once protected. But for one mortal girl to make a difference in this desperate war between the spirits, she may have to give up the only home she’s ever known.

“In that moment, she understood the nature of her life: an outlier.”

In 1883, a young Chinese woman is sold by her father to human traffickers and forcibly taken from her family and home in the mountains of Hunan. Facing brutality and deprivation, Ya Zhen must forge within herself a core of strength that will allow her to survive. Her journey ends thousands of miles and a continent away when she’s purchased in San Francisco as an indentured prostitute and taken to Eureka, a rugged and remote area of coastal California. This fledgling outpost–a coarse place filled with lumber mills, brothels, churches, and saloons–is bounded by ocean on one side and heavy redwood forests everywhere else.

In Eureka, another woman, Rose Allen, doesn’t quite fit in. Big-hearted, but hard-headed and outspoken, Rose struggles against the prejudices and social expectations of her Victorian neighbors and acquaintances–especially after she falls in love with the Chinese shopkeeper, Bai Lum. When she learns that several Chinese women are kept as virtual slaves at Salyer’s Hotel, Rose joins forces with a small group of friends who are determined to help Ya Zhen escape her grim incarceration. But even as they devise a plan to get her free, a terrible accident precipitates the upheaval of the entire town, and tension mounts as the clock begins ticking for everyone.

A coming of age novel about blind faith, spiritual betrayal, and abuse of power.

In the heyday of the New Age movement, after the deaths of both his parents, troubled college dropout Doug Greenbaum seeks the meaning of life at the feet of charismatic Indian meditation master Swami Rudrananda. With just one touch, his followers say, Rudrananda has the power to awaken a spiritual force within his devotees known as kundalini, and can guide them all the way to enlightenment.

But as Doug travels with the swami’s entourage to India and back during the early 1980s, he discovers that life at the ashram contradicts his preconceived ideas about spirituality. VIPs get special treatment, and the higher-ups live in luxury, dress in designer clothes, use foul language, and never meditate. The guru’s core disciples appear certifiably nuts, but have one thing in common: a fanatical and unwavering devotion to Rudrananda, whom they call “Baba,” or father. The cult will stop at nothing to protect his shocking secret.
