Classic fairy tales get an oh-so-modern update in this fun, value-priced collection.

Waiting for your prince to come? Forget it! Today’s heroines are plunging into love feet first—nary a glass slipper in sight. With nine delightful stories, this bundle offers contemporary twists on beloved fables such as Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, Snow White, and Aladdin.

Cloaked in Blood: Little Red Riding Hood knows exactly how to handle the wolf in this shapeshifter tale. To Selena Kurt’s surprise, her clan matches her to Marcin Ulf, the big, bad wulfkin who broke her heart years ago. However, first they’re drawn into a tournament where they must face off with one another…just as their romance rekindles.

The Cougar’s Pawn: Beauty Ellery Colvard is camping with friends when she gets carried away—literally—by beastly were-cougar Mason Foye, who needs a mate to avoid his fate. But witchy Ellery doesn’t believe in soul mates. If Mason can’t convince her to be his, he’s doomed to spend the rest of his days in his cougar form.

Best Laid Plans: Practical anchorwoman Violet Gallagher and hotshot photojournalist Jake Macintyre live in different worlds, until the night she catches his eye at a party and loses more than her dancing shoes to him. Is their one enchanted evening worth a lifetime of dreams?

Protecting the Prince: Someone’s determined to stop Eliam Prince from taking over the family shipping docks. He needs a bodyguard, no matter how much the concept makes him grumpy. But security expert Winter Wyn soon learns that keeping this beautiful man safe from sabotage, blackmailers, assassins, and his own stubborn pride isn’t nearly as hard as protecting her own bashful heart.

Catch a Falling Star: Brianna Daniels’s courageous ailing stepsister has one wish: she wants to go to the ball. Brianna makes it happen and Natalie meets her prince at the fundraising gala for the city’s elite. The problem is, Brianna falls for gorgeous patent attorney Matthias Gustafson, too. What kind of wicked stepsister would begrudge a loving young woman’s one shot at happiness?

A Late-Blooming Rose: Bookseller Beau Landry boldly ventures to the estate of bitter and downright beastly hermit Eva Mitchum, determined to buy her rare collection. What he discovers is a lonely, hurting, wheelchair-bound woman who has forgotten how to love. When she challenges Beau to stay with her in exchange for the books, the offer will change both their lives.

His One Wish: Special forces veteran Aiden Cooper is hired to track down Turhan Technologies’ missing technical genius, Jin Ru, who’s disappeared with the prototype for their powerful new software. But when his path crosses with the alluring heiress of Turhan, Jazlin Morgan, sparks fly. Can they save her family’s company from her greedy uncle’s clutches?

Music to her Ears: When blonde, bubbly Hannah “Goldie” Loxley gets a housesitting gig for the Rievaulx Trio, world-famous concert musicians, she accidentally ends up in the bed of middle brother Mike. Confusion soon leads to an undeniable attraction. But will their whirlwind romance falter when reality settles in?

Fairy Trouble: When her new charge Cindy finals in an art competition in New York, fairy godmother Esmeralda must step into her slippers to attend Murphy Enterprises’ costume ball. She doesn’t expect to catch the eye of handsome, unassuming heir Ryan or fall for him. However, convincing this skeptic that magic is real and she’s not just a con artist will be no easy feat.

Could a deep and dark secret be behind the sniper-style killing of a sheriff’s office captain, or is it simply the work of a madman with a rifle? Whatever the case, the killer is taunting the cops with a mysterious message, and Police Sniper London Carter is determined to decipher the message and capture the murderer.

Will London solve the mystery in time, or will more officers die before he can bring the killer to justice?


When the sniper-style murder of an alligator poacher puts two rival families on edge, Police Sniper London Carter and Detective Sergeant Dawn Luke join forces to solve the case. But they’ll have their work cut out for them as the two families recruit small armies to fight each other and the FBI becomes involved in the case.

It doesn’t take London long to realize they’re dealing with a professional killer, but the motive for the murder is far from clear. Will he and Dawn solve the case before it’s too late, or will the swamps of Louisiana run red with the blood of the rival families and the cops who are trying to stop them?


Days after Police Sniper London Carter resolves a hostage situation at a local car dealership, Detective Sergeant Dawn Luke calls upon him to assist her with a mysterious death investigation. The cause of death is not obvious, but the body is found in a peculiar position and the individual is connected to the recent hostage situation, so something seems amiss.

London and Dawn end up facing numerous roadblocks in their quest for the truth–including an unidentified body, uncooperative witnesses, and a killer tornado–and through it all they start to develop feelings for each other. But the case is growing complicated and dangerous, and if they’re not careful, one of them could end up like their victim…dead and naked on a cold morgue slab.

Taken by Storm – Nook

“Tightly woven and well written, it was a fun, fast read. I’m looking forward to the rest in the series.” -Terri A.

The last of their kind, each born with a unique set of gifts, the Taken are a dying people. They were whisked away to Earth as children, hidden for their own protection and raised as humans. Now adults, they are the only hope for a world consumed by war and terror. Hunted both by those who seek to protect them as well as those who wish to use them, their lives depend on who finds them first.

In a world where technology and magic coexist as one, only a few special people have the power to stand guardian against the death of countless innocent souls. They must defeat the Raide and stop the ravenous war machine that destroys all it touches. Or humans will be next.

Isa Telwyn always thought she was normal. Ish. Sure, she can taste lies and has dreams filled with impossibly beautiful places that don’t exist, but who doesn’t have a quirk or two. It’s not like it interferes with her quiet life as a small town librarian.

As a storm closes in on her sleepy home town, her normal life is knocked sideways by a godlike warrior who is the stuff of dreams. The ridiculous claim he makes—that she is some kind of empress who is the only hope for her subjects on a distant world—is true. At least he believes it. But as the sexy, honorable warrior rips apart her normal life and drives her toward her destiny, she realizes that life as an empress is not exactly the cushy job that Hollywood had led her to believe. Darkness and danger lurk inside the palace walls, haunting her at every turn.

Warrian is a man of honor, sworn to protect the last of the imperial line, no matter how feisty and unruly she may be. His mission on Earth was supposed to be simple: find the empress and bring her home. But his superiors had not taken into account the willful, beautiful woman raised with strange human ideas—like that she should have a choice in the life she leads. As he soon learns, when the empress is involved, even the most honorable man is tempted—though whether to kiss her or throttle her, he’s not sure.

Torn between two worlds, bound by their sense of duty, and caught in a maelstrom of forbidden love, their time is running out. The storm is closing in, and Isa and Warrian must act fast if they are to have any hope of saving the two worlds they love from utter destruction.

Part memoir, part how-to, their story shares what they learned about downsizing, buying land, getting ready to build a small house and much more. Planning to build the house themselves, they cover a lot of research territory, including:

Small house design

Customizing simple, small house floor plans to suit their needs and multiple pets

How they downsized and sold most of their belongings

Questions to ask when purchasing land to build your small house

Budgeting and saving money

Building without debt or a mortgage

The hidden costs in developing raw land for small house living

In their pursuit for more freedom and adventure, they move cross country and embark on a journey to build the perfect small house. This book is the first in a two-part series and presents a third alternative in the battle between big traditional houses and tiny trailer homes: The customized, small house on a foundation.
