Keep the door locked…

Sam is excited to spend a week at her uncle’s remote lake cabin. It’s a chance for her to focus on her art without distractions: no neighbours, no phone, and a small radio as her only contact with the outside world.

But there’s something deeply unnatural lingering in the lake.

The radio’s news reports talk about disappearances on a nearby hiking trail. The car won’t start. And Sam starts to believe she’s being stalked when she catches glimpses of a tall, strange man standing at the end of her dock, staring intently into the swirling waters below…

“Everything I want in a Regency romance: feisty heroine, broody hero with a loving heart, and some beautifully written love scenes.” -Kari Lemor, author

An inconvenient engagement turns a marriage of convenience into so much more in this sparkling new series from #1 Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author Sara Portman . . .

Lady Emmaline Shaw’s reputation was irreparably damaged when her fiancé, John Brantwood, disappeared immediately after their engagement four years ago.

Rumor has it that John ran off to war and died in battle. Now, as the new Duke of Worley, his shocking resurrection throws the ton into a tizzy and makes him one of England’s most sought after bachelors–except that he’s already engaged.

John needs a wife capable of smoothing his beloved sister’s introduction into society. But though Emma happily grants him his freedom, her fiery beauty and resilient spirit hold him captive. In fact, John has no intention of letting her go. Her fate is now in his hands, but will her heart be safe there as well?

Award-Winning Author

JoJo Merritt is a country veterinarian who has never jumped out of anything higher than a hayloft, much less an airplane. But thanks to her friends’ dare, now she must.

What she discovers during her flight to the skydiving school in San Antonio is guaranteed to make her short vacation miserable: She is terrified of flying! How is she going to leap from a plane if she can’t stand being in one?

Mitch O’Hara, her seat mate, keeps her distracted during the flight to San Antonio, but from there, she’s on her own.

Or is she?

If Mitch felt protective of the wide-eyed, white knuckled beauty during the flight, imagine how he’ll feel the next day, when he finds her at the skydiving school, fumbling with the zipper of her jumpsuit.

By now, JoJo is certain of two things: she doesn’t want to fall from a plane, and she doesn’t want to fall for Mitch.

She’ll be in San Antonio for only five days. Can Mitch convince her to take a leap?

Murder at the Ballet: Dance of the Dangling Corpse.

They all seem murderous, but maybe they’re just hungry. Half the company chain-smokes to keep their weight down, and as tempers flare, you’d better watch who you say, “Break a leg!” to.

Recently retired Wall Street exec T.S. Hubbert and the flamboyant fashionista amateur sleuth who’s his Auntie Lil have solved three murders when Auntie Lil becomes the newest member of the Metropolitan Ballet’s board of directors. For weeks Auntie Lil has dragged T.S. to every dance performance in the city, and the season is about to peak with The Nutcracker when the promising ballerina whose scholarship Lil’s been sponsoring has her plum role snatched away.

The board is swayed by the box office appeal of a sixteen-year-old Hollywood heart-throb who wants to dance the role of the Nutcracker, and the boy’s manager father demands Lil’s protégé be replaced lest all the publicity go to her instead of his son. Although Auntie Lil’s is the only dissenting vote, apparently, she’s not the only one displeased with the board’s decision – the father’s body is discovered swinging from the rope of the First Act curtain at The Nutcracker’s Gala Opening.

Auntie Lil’s recent detective successes make her a natural to run damage control for the board by investigating the murder. In order to check out a couple of suspects, Lil takes her first ballet class in all her sprightly eighty-four years, along with her gentleman friend, Herbert Wong. Less suited to flying leaps than to flying leaps of imagination, it’s unlikely she’ll keep up the lessons, but Herbert is totally hooked.

Meanwhile, T.S. is making good use of his retirement by studying ballroom dancing to impress his lovely lady friend Lilah Cheswick, leaving Auntie Lil to do the heavy lifting on this one, while Theodore and Herbert keep sneaking off for dance lessons…and martinis. The entire crew of geriatric super sleuths has dance fever!

“This book contains a wealth of ethnological and biological information … this is a valuable contribution to the scientific study of the Eskimos, by one who knows them thoroughly.” -The Literary Digest

#1 Amazon Bestseller

Who are the Eskimo peoples?

And how do they survive in the freezing conditions of the far north?

Vilhjálmur Stefánsson left New York in April 1908 to begin his journey northwards and into the Arctic Circle.

For the next two years he made his way northwards to Victoria Island to study an isolated group of Inuit who still used primitive tools and had strong Caucasian features, and whom some believed were descended from Vikings.

The journey into these remote areas was incredibly tough and being delayed by blizzards Stefánsson, along with his companions, were forced to eat the tongue of a beached whale that had been dead for at least four years.

Stefánsson, who learnt how to communicate with the Inuit, provides fascinating insight into the beliefs and every day life of these people.

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in this remarkable expedition and for people who want to find out more about life of people in the far north prior to the advent of modern technology.

Vilhjálmur Stefánsson was a Canadian Artic explorer and ethnologist. Under the auspices of the American Museum of Natural History, New York, he and Dr. R. M. Anderson undertook the ethnological survey of the Central Arctic coasts of the shores of North America from 1908 to 1912. The results of this expedition were My Life with the Eskimo first published in 1913. Stefánsson passed away in 1962.

Until Anthony.

He was bossy and arrogant and goaded her whenever he had the chance. So why was it then, when he walked into a room, the world felt normal again. Except for her racing heart. The same heart that had cracked into a million pieces years before. Pieces she had carefully swept under the rug and kept hidden.

Just when she was ready to deal with her feelings for him, life threw another curve ball at her, forcing her to make a choice. A choice that would change, not only her life but the life of her friends and family.

Clues from beyond the grave…and an attractive new man!

Dr. Promise McNeal, retired psychologist, is supplementing her income with a little investigative work for a lawyer friend to whom she never reveals her unconventional sources: the dead. And they have an agenda all their own.

Promise has left her private counseling practice and traded Atlanta’s ghastly traffic for a package deal that included a struggling general store along with a farmhouse and five acres with a creek and mountain views in beautiful western North Carolina. Her “Watson” is her twenty-something, semi-Goth store manager Susan, a Bluegrass musician who performs with her father Daniel.

Promise’s abilities of perception do not, however, extend to reading mountain men, because, no matter how vehemently Promise dismisses the notion, Daniel– an unsettlingly handsome widower– is, as Susan shrewdly observes, very clearly “sweet on her”.

Morgan James’s appealingly human and incisive, fiftyish female sleuth is sure to delight fans of cozies, especially those by Julia Spencer-Fleming and Mary Kay Andrews, as well as the kind with a light sprinkling of psychic suspense; admirers of female amateur sleuths; readers of supernatural suspense and psychic detective fiction, and of other great North Carolina mystery authors like Margaret Maron, Barbara Neely, Elizabeth Daniels Squire, and Vicki Lane.

QUIET THE DEAD (Promise McNeal Mysteries Book 1)

The image comes in a dream: a beautiful woman hanging over a stream, strangled with a red scarf. And with that, Promise McNeal’s hoped-for quiet new life in the North Carolina mountains flies out the window.

But in flies opportunity—along with the mystery surrounding the woman’s murder, a brand new murder, a lucrative consulting job, and an extremely attractive man (in a problematical sort of way). A lot of action for a woman who moved from Atlanta to find peace and quiet!

QUIET KILLING (Promise McNeal Mysteries Book 2)

Amateur North Carolina sleuth (and psychic) Promise McNeal just can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep—someone’s always haunting her dreams. Lately it’s been her great grandfather, January McNeal, and who disobeys their great grandfather?
So she delves back into family history, but when she finds grave robbery in there, she has second thoughts.

Then evil comes knocking.

First someone burns her barn, then the contractor she hires to rebuild it is murdered, nearly at her back door. More fires lead her to a mysterious abandoned child who could be the arsonist– and murderer.

QUIET HEARTS (Promise McNeal Mysteries Book 3)

Lovebirds Promise McNeal and her mountain man, Daniel Allen, have arrived in the historic Golden Isles, Georgia’s barrier islands, for a romantic wedding and honeymoon on nearby Jekyll Island.

As fate would have it, the ruthlessly ambitious Atlanta TV talk show host Aileen Wang has brought her crew for an extravaganza production on a cursed Chinese chair that’s also a World War II relic connected to the secret of a sixty-year-old murder. Just as the wedding party assembles, someone shoots first Aileen and then kills two possible witnesses.

Can this wedding be saved?
