“I love this series, they don’t come out nearly fast enough!” -Nikki L.

NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Shane Hart loves the ladies. Like hit records, he can never have too many. Shane swore long ago never to treat a woman the way his abusive father treated his mother, but his traumatic past has kept him from making any solid commitments—even to a fiery redhead like Avery O’Leery. Shane’s happy enough to rescue her from a tight spot, but that’s as far as their connection goes—until their unforgettable liaison has him rethinking his impulse to love ’em and leave ’em.

Avery has big plans: first, shake the dust of small-town Kentucky from her boots; second, become a bona fide songwriter; and third, keep the truth hidden about her birth father from everyone in Nashville. Nowhere on that list is she supposed to land in bed with a sexy stranger who rescues her off the street at midnight, especially if that stranger is Shane Hart. Avery’s trying not to fall for the dreamy music producer who could make or break her career. But her best-laid plans seem to be no match for a love that feels like destiny.

Amazon Bestselling and Multi Award-Winning Author

Lara Benedict, a mystery writer whose career is blossoming, finds herself in the middle of a real-life mystery when her cousin, Sam Hamilton, is accused of murder. Sam insists that Jim Scott, a local handyman, died as the result of an accidental fall, but the prosecuting attorney is moving forward with the case against Sam. Lara has returned to the village of Pine Summit in order to help figure out what actually happened to Jim Scott, and she’s disturbed to discover that her ex-fiancé, Daniel Riley, is the assistant prosecutor who’s handling the case against Sam.

It’s been nearly a year since the handyman died—why the unexpected murder charge against her cousin now? Does it have anything to do with the fact that Sam is married to the dead man’s widow? Or are there other, more devious, circumstances involved?

Jim Scott died when he fell from the tower at the corner of Lara’s family home. While trying to solve this mystery, Lara discovers that the tower holds an even greater secret, one that’s putting her life in danger. She’ll have to uncover the truth about both of the tower’s secrets in order to save Sam—and herself.

“Among the ten best Western books of all time. It has that rare combination, a personal reminiscence covering important events, and a thoroughly scholarly and reliable treatment.” -Westerners Brand Book

For fifteen years John G. Bourke served under General George Crook as they fought side by side on the frontiers of the United States from Mexico to the Canadian border.

Crook and his troops clashed against some of the most formidable opponents of the nineteenth century during the Great Sioux War and the Apache Wars, including Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and Geronimo.

This fascinating account of these times brings to life the frontier of the Old West, with vivid descriptions, humorous anecdotes and deadly encounters.

On the Border with Crook is essential reading for anyone interested in not only Crook’s military campaigns of the American Indian wars but also anyone wishing to find out how settlers and communities survived and prospered through adversity.

“Bourke was a meticulous observer as well as a superb and engrossingly interesting writer. He would also colour his material with lyrical and poetical observations upon the natural world, including the landscape and the weather, and also with copies of such official correspondence he deemed important such as orders, rosters, newspaper clippings and his own drawings to accompany his texts. Furthermore it would all be laced with his descriptions – sometimes with humour – of characters, military, civilian and Indians met along the way.” The English Westerners’ Society

John Gregory Bourke was a captain in the United States Army who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his services during the American Civil War. After he had completed fifteen years of duty in the American Indian Wars he became a prolific author, writing a number of accounts about his time in the army as well as ethnographical studies of the American West. On the Border with Crook was first published in 1892 and Bourke died four years later in 1896.

“So awesome I don’t know where to begin.” -Reka

Daxxton Ryker, Wing Commander of Top Scale Academy, had finally found somewhere he could make a difference. By training future generations of dragons to help protect his homeland of Cadia, he hoped to make up for the mistakes of his past. But when he arrives at the borders of his homeland to respond to a distress call, the last thing he expected was her. After centuries of believing he had lost his only chance at love, it turns out he might have been wrong. Very wrong.

As head of security for the Princess of Tanith, Miranda Pyke has been exposed to many powerful figures over the years. But none of them have stolen her breath like the tall, golden-skinned shifter from Cadia. Despite her intense focus on her job, the handsome dragon with the quick wit never strays far from her mind. She knew it would only take one slip on her part for things to get out of control…

Can the pair fight off the relentless mercenary’s intent on kidnapping the princess, while still managing to discover just how deep their feelings for each other run? And when the time comes for the truth to be laid bare, how will Daxxton cope with the secret she’s been hiding the entire time?

“This story is so well researched, it’s almost surgical in its approach.” -Rachael M.


It’s 1980 and Captain David Mahoney is preparing to jump from a plane into Iran.

Far to the north the Americans are readying their hostage rescue mission. But the British have problems of their own. Khorramshahr is boiling over into revolt and Mahoney’s best man is down there – Tariq Ismail.

The descent goes to plan and the next morning Mahoney and Tariq arrive at a safe house in the city to brief each other on new developments.

Mahoney, an ex SAS officer now working in the Intelligence Corps Specialist Intelligence Wing, has trained Tariq from a young age.

Working on the ground as a spy in Iran, Tariq joins the Democratic Revolutionary Front for the Liberation of Khuzestan. Through his involvement with the group he has gained information on ‘the fox’, Sami Mohammed Ali, Saddam Hussein’s intelligence chief.

Mahoney orders Tariq to run with the DRFLA’s plan to send a handful of members to Europe for an undisclosed mission, and to inform him of any developments as soon as they occur.

Tariq is sent with fellow terrorists to Heathrow to carry out an attack – on the Iranian Embassy in Kensington. Trying not to raise suspicion from his DRFLA comrades, he attempts to get in touch with British Intelligence and inform Mahoney of his message.

After jumping through curious covert protocol Tariq gets through to the service.

They register his information but how is Tariq going to be able to get away from the terrorists?

How will the incoming SAS team be able to recognise he isn’t a terrorist and is actually a spy for the British?

Will Mahoney and his team succeed in their rescue mission – or will the Iranian Embassy be destroyed?

“It’s the kind of love story young girls (and older ones too) daydream about.” -Ruth White, author

Christmas has always been Kate O’Connor’s favorite time of the year, but this season—despite her battery-operated twinkle-light earrings—she’s feeling far from festive. In fact, she’s wallowing in a generous dose of self-pity over the loss of her father, the train wreck that was her engagement, and an unsavory setback in her career.

To make matters worse, her boss at the Cline and Co. ad agency has volunteered her to be the one-woman welcoming committee for Gavin Whyte, the VIP client from across the pond who could be the key to saving their struggling business.

Eager to prove she’s a team player, Kate resolves to show Gavin a good time, hoping his dazzling blue eyes, his delicious Irish accent, and her own propensity for disaster don’t cause her to torpedo the company’s chances of recovery.

“This series is amazing. They are very well written and very exciting.” -Aimee L.

This collection of the first three books in the Clearwater Witches series of Young Adult novels is full of magic, suspense, and a touch of romance.

Crystal Magic

When tragedy forces Kristyl Barnette to move to the small town of Clearwater with her estranged aunt Jodi, Kristyl tries to leave her past behind. She catches the attention of Owen Marsh, who accepts her without question and who may be able to understand her better than anyone.

But Owen isn’t the only one who notices her. The mysteriously alluring Fox Holloway draws Kristyl’s eye whenever he’s around. And Clearwater High’s chief mean-girl, Crystal Jamison, has her sights set on Kristyl and will stop at nothing to prove what Kristyl really is.

A witch.

Magic can be as dangerous as fire, and Aunt Jodi wants Kristyl to have nothing to do with it. But when a mysterious illness threatens her aunt’s life, Kristyl will do anything to cure her. Enlisting the help of witches could save Jodi, but is dealing in magic worth the consequences?

Wild Magic

Kristyl Barnette’s life was finally coming together. But one spell changed everything.

When people begin dying mysteriously, Kristyl must form new alliances with old friends in order to prevent more deaths–and to save the circle from destruction.

Power comes at a price. Will Kristyl be able to pay it before it’s too late?

Circle Magic

It’s only a matter of time before everything Krissa Barnette knows and loves is destroyed.

Her father, absent for five years, returns to reveal the reason he left was to learn how to defeat a dangerous foe. His mysterious companion, Anya, possesses a wealth of knowledge about the fight but conceals many secrets.

But Krissa has secrets, too, including the reason why she and Owen Marsh have a connection. And it’s difficult to keep the truth from Fox Holloway now that the three of them are linked by a binding ritual.

It’s a race against time to enact the spell that will rid the world of Seth once and for all, but with threats coming from all angles, will Krissa and her friends succeed?

Award-Winning Author

When Kevin Johnson, 22, goes to Wallace, Idaho, days after his college graduation, he expects to find rest and relaxation as his family prepares his deceased grandfather’s house for sale. Then he discovers a hidden diary and a time portal that can take him to 1910, the year of Halley’s comet and the largest wildfire in U.S. history.

Within hours, Kevin finds himself in the era of horse-drawn wagons, straw hats, and ankle-length dresses. Traveling repeatedly to the same time and place, he decides to make the portal his gateway to summer fun. The adventure takes a more serious turn, however, when the luckless-in-love science major falls for pretty English teacher Sarah Thompson and integrates himself in a community headed for disaster.

“This is truly the best book that I have read in a long time!” -Diana M.

Award-Winning Author

A smallpox epidemic begins in a whisper with a single death, and then the name of the victim surfaces: Abdulaziz al-Sherhi. In a nation rich in imagination, this name requires none at all. In the weeks that follow, the epidemic fears crescendo into a national roar. People panic about dying from this horrific terrorist incited disease and clamor for a vaccination. The federal government lurches along, hurriedly creating more vaccines to meet the demand.

Maggie Rider, a weary road warrior for a high tech company, submits to the shot only to realize this is no ordinary immunization. Her husband, Eddy, posts his suspicions about this deeply sinister government requirement to his web site.

Now he’s a target.

And Maggie is the bait.

The technology is real. Washington is corrupt. It’s only a matter of time before this isn’t just an intriguing idea for a political thriller.

Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Except Alex. He’s a womanizing manwhore. And maybe Stratton, because he’s wicked hot, but super awkward around girls.)

Barrett English, aka “the Shark,” is the fair-haired, first-born of the English brothers, and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way.

Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett’s childhood estate. The daughter of his family’s gardener and housekeeper, she was always looking through the window of privilege, but forced to remember her place at the very periphery of the kingdom.

When business partners suggest that a fiancee might soften Barrett’s image over business dinners, he approaches Emily for the “job” of fiancee. And while love wasn’t necessarily on Barrett’s radar, he begins to realize that Emily always has been. But will his take-no-prisoners boardroom tactics work on the heart of the woman he loves?
