Can love survive the bright lights of fame?

A popular DJ at the hottest station in Nashville, Charley Layton is doing what she’s always wanted to do: living in the heart of country music. Charley puts her career first and relationships second, but when a charismatic stranger in a black cowboy hat invites her back to his place, she decides to give herself one night of no-strings fun.

But Dylan Monroe isn’t a no-strings kind of guy. Charley is beautiful, brainy, and brassy as hell—the kind of girl he’s always wanted. When his record label books him an interview on Charley’s show, he’s determined to find out why he woke up alone, and when he can see her again.

With Dylan now the most eligible bachelor in country music, Charley doubts their fling stands a chance, but she’s willing to try. Dylan dreams of fame, but he also craves a life offstage with Charley. Can he convince her that both of their dreams are worth chasing, and that love is still possible, even in the spotlight?

USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Six people want her dead. One vampire is under orders to keep her alive, but he’s hungry…and for much more than blood.

Lainey Hargreaves has a secret that she must keep at all costs, a secret that could change the face of the earth—forever. But not all secrets can be kept and when hers begins to escape, she is certain that death will follow. There is only one person that can extricate her from the mess in which she finds herself—a vampire.

Mercer is that vampire. His quick analytical brain will give them a head start against her assassins, but even he isn’t confident of success. He needs to discover what Lainey is hiding, unravel her secrets, and earn her trust. She will need to learn to obey his every order without question if they are to stand a chance of success. Where’s the best place to start? The bedroom, of course—all women find him irresistible. All women except Lainey, that is. She fights tooth and nail to deny the bright red spark blooming between them, only…

She’s going to lose.


Drive Thru Murder – Amazon
by Colleen Mooney
Rating: 4.8
Genre: Mystery
Price: $0.99 Save $2.00

“It was fun, funny, and suspenseful. New Orleans is such a fascinating and intriguing setting for a murder mystery. The characters are memorable, and very colorful. The pace is fast, with lots of twists and turns.” -Susan S.

Colleen Mooney keeps the twists coming as fast as the laughs in her third THIRD funny cozy starring Brandy Alexander, everybody’s idea of the perfect chick lit heroine. Brandy’s blonde, adorable, has a good job, two guys to choose from, and very possibly the poor judgment to pick the wrong one. (Half the fun’s watching to see if she’s ever going to wise up.)

The other half’s watching her life complicate itself in ways that would send the average female sleuth screaming into the night. First, she witnesses a murder at a drive thru joint with the unlikely name of CLUCK IT—CHICKEN BY THE BUCKET. And then it turns out nothing at the scene’s what it seems—or at any rate nobody’s who they seem. Seems CLUCK IT’s not just a place to clog your arteries, but also a transgender hangout. And with that discovery, you know you’re in New Orleans.

The local color never stops as Brandy’s complex Irish Channel family develops the kind of problem that’s a lot more fun on the page than in real life. What to do when your sister gets pregnant with one of the next-door twins who are also the brothers of your lifelong flame—but she doesn’t know which twin? (Be glad it’s Brandy’s problem, not yours.)

She also finds a mysterious box of valuable jewelry under her closet floor, becomes the unofficial caretaker of the Tarot reader across the street who knows the future but can never predict when she’s going to get so drunk she’s going to fall into her own bushes, and develops a strong suspicion about one of her other neighbors, all the while juggling the two Romeos.

Good thing she’s better at solving mysteries than she is at wrangling her boy friends. The reader can rest assured she’s eventually, and in fine style, going to weave together the myriad mysterious strands that confound the police (who happen to count Boy Friend # 1 among their ranks) and present them the solution with all the panache of an old-style detective like Hercule Poirot—yet none of the pretension. You can almost hear her wondering, “Did I do that?”

“For me to give a book 5 stars, it has to be awesome. The characters are well thought out, the world though scary and a place I wouldn’t want to live myself, is colorful and vibrant.” -Colleen J.

A cursed dollhouse. Seven stages until murder. What can this father do?

Mark’s always been a bit insecure as a father, his own childhood sucked. He’s been terrified he will ruin his perfect daughters. So he buys them presents and hopes he won’t screw them up.

They certainly won’t forget this dollhouse.

He doesn’t know how to stop it, and all he wanted to do was be a good father.He was worried that they’d grow up to hate him, now he’s worried they won’t grow up at all.

You’ll love this terrifying countdown, can he stop himself?

Things come to a head when, around the Cape Horn, the Omega is blocked by a foundering windjammer in a blistering storm.
