An unexpected inheritance brings Ellen back to her hometown of St. Marys. After an absence of ten years, she never expects to run into Quinn, one of her sister’s old boyfriends and her teenage obsession. If it’s true that it’s a small world, it’s also true that it can be a cruel one. The good-looking eighteen-year-old who touched her young heart is no more. In his place is a man whose life has been torn apart by tragedy and loss.

There was a time when Quinn believed love could conquer all; that there was nothing it couldn’t overcome. Losing Avery changed all that. Her rejection was a painful lesson in the limitations of human love. Ellen’s sudden reappearance in his life is a complication he didn’t anticipate. She epitomizes everything he wants and everything he can’t have. Her touch awakens not a sleeping giant bent on destruction, but a tormented soul desperate for affection and acceptance.

Is love a shallow emotion that flees at the first sign of adversity or will it wait forever for the one whose heart it seeks?

“Truly a thinking-person’s romance! For fans of literary fiction, contemporary romance, new adult romance, even teen romance–everyone with a heart will thrill to this roller-coaster love story.” – DD


Your money back if you finish the first chapter of this hot, believable, all-too-real love story, and don’t keep reading! Because the author sets up every girl’s (and every woman’s) ultimate romantic fantasy—meeting the man of your dreams and realizing it, in one head-spinning moment, both white-hot passion and everlasting love ignited in a millisecond. Equally in both of you. At age sixteen.

Only seconds before it happened, you couldn’t know this was your dream love because you never knew there was a man like this, and of all things, asleep in a bait store. As in real life, it’s not the “cute meet” Michelle expected. Instead, it’s the real thing.

The Girl Who Danced at the Come On Inn is the glorious, joyful beginning of The Jolie Blonde Louisiana Trilogy, before tragedy struck — and then picked up speed going downhill.

Award-Winning Author

An Edgar Award-winning tale of murder at Mardi Gras, the (unlikely) dynamic duo of a luddite private eye and a sassy poet/hacker-turned-investigator, a tasty San Francisco cozy chronicling the sometimes killer-competitive bakery biz, and an ex-journalist caught up in the dirtier…and deadlier… side of a P.I.’s puzzling demise. Mysterious bedfellows—and an irresistible collection of the ‘best of’ that celebrated mystery novelist Julie Smith has to offer. Best Case: Murder is an anthology sure to hook readers into all 4 of Smith’s page-turning mystery series.

Plus! Two delectable short stories! All for the killer price of $8.99!


It’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and civic leader and socialite Chauncy St. Amant has been crowned Rex, King of Carnival. But his day of glory comes to an abrupt and bloody end when a parade-goer dressed as Dolly Parton guns him down. Is the killer his aimless, promiscuous daughter Marcelle? Homosexual, mistreated son Henry? Helpless, alcoholic wife Bitty? Or some unknown player? Turns out the king had enemies…

Enter resourceful heroine Skip Langdon, a rookie police officer and former debutante turned cynic of the Uptown crowd. Scouring the streets for clues, interviewing revelers and street people with names like Jo Jo, Hinky, and Cookie, and using her white glove contacts, the post-deb rebel cop encounters a tangled web of brooding clues and ancient secrets that could mean danger for her—and doom for the St. Amants.



Confirmed grump Eddie Valentino placed the ad. Hotshot twenty-something Talba Wallis knew exactly how to answer it.

And thus was born the dynamic duo of New Orleans private detectives, one cynical, sixty-five-year-old Luddite white dude with street smarts, and one young, bright-eyed, Twenty-First century African-American female poet, performance artist, mistress of disguise, and computer jock extraordinaire. Think Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito.

In Louisiana Hotshot, their job is to hunt down a sociopath and pedophile who’s molested the fourteen-year-old daughter of their client, hangs out on the ragged edges of the rap and recording industries, and has more powerful allies than a Cabinet member.


TO YOU, ITS JUST A FROZEN LUMP OF DOUGH; TO SOME, IT’S LIFE AND DEATH… Especially to handsome Peter Martinelli, who wants to auction off the fabled sourdough starter from his family’s famous bakery. But who’d buy a frozen hunk of flour and water? Only, it turns out, every bakery in San Francisco, a national food conglomerate, and an upstart ringer with a mysterious backer.

Someone would even kill for it. And does.

Enter lawyer sleuth Rebecca Schwartz, whose client is her own partner, glamorous Chris Nicholson, Martinelli’s main squeeze before the ill-starred auction.


Things were going lousy for ex-reporter Paul Mcdonald: No money, no girl friend, no bright new career as a mystery novelist … and then along came private investigator Jack Birnbaum with an offer: he’d detect, and Paul would write the client reports. It wasn’t much, but it would keep Spot the cat in Kitty Queen tidbits.

But then somebody poisoned Jack in Paul’s own living room. A day that begins with a body in your house really ought to get better, but next comes burglary and after that, assault-by-cop. And Paul’s got a feeling that’s just the beginning. There must have been something someone didn’t want him to know in one of those client reports. But what?

Plus five short stories! –in MEET SKIP LANGDON and REDNECK RIVIERA.

As a thirty-something, she wonders how she is going to start her life over again. However, she has a good job, working in Barrington’s department store and a great friend in Roz.

Her boss, Hugh Barrington, is apparently quite dapper and dashing, as Roz so wickedly points out, but Sally doesn’t look at him like that. Hugh has it all: wealth, good job, and the perfect marriage… or so it seems.

One night, they’re watching the home movies of a co-worker, and Roz drinks a little too much in an effort to ease the boredom. Hugh offers to give the two of them a ride home.

After being dropped off, Sally’s ex shows up on her doorstep, drunk and a bit threatening. Hugh returns after Roz sends him to check on Sally. Still in a state of shock, Sally falls into Hugh’s arms, but completely misinterprets his offer of financial help. She assumes he’s asking her to become his mistress. Hungover and in the cold light of day, Sally feels extremely foolish and decides she can no longer work at Barrington’s.

However, their attraction to one another is now undeniable, and they begin a secret affair. Along the way they meet new friends, uncover long buried secrets, and eventually, circumstances prevent the relationship from being hidden any longer. But is that a bad thing…?

Can Hugh and Sally work things out and find happiness?

The Secret Affair is an entertaining and touching romance about family, friendship and finding love.

Amazon bestselling authors Chautona Havig and Vikki Kestell join debuting authors Cathe Swanson and April Hayman to present Christmas Lights, a collection of four Christmas-themed novellas.

The Heart of Joy (Vikki Kestell): Joy Michaels, grieving mother and widow, resides in an aging but remarkable Denver home known locally as Palmer House: a most extraordinary refuge for young women rescued from prostitution. Joy and her mother, Rose Thoresen, share the responsibilities of ministering to and mentoring the young women who live under Palmer House’s roof.

But now Joy faces an agonizing decision: Remain true to the memory of her first love or open her heart to the possibility of new love? And she wonders, “Can true, enduring love happen twice in a lifetime?”

Snow Angels (Cathe Swanson): When Lisa Marsh is roped into serving Thanksgiving dinner at the local community center, she meets lively teenagers, stubbornly independent veterans, eccentric elderly people, and one particularly rude and scruffy homeless man named Pete. She sets out to find him a decent job and make him respectable—whether he likes it or not—but her small project of helping Pete snowballs into an extraordinary Christmas ministry. And the vagabond can be very charming when he wants to be…

Trip the Light Fantastic (April Hayman): Lance “Trip” Devereaux is an FBI agent tasked with the nearly impossible job of tailing and, hopefully, arresting Landry Crawford, the wiliest conman east of the Mississippi River. But during his investigation, things go horribly wrong for the klutzy G-man. Will Trip nab his man in time for Christmas? Or will he be left out in the cold?

Christmas Stalkings (Chautona Havig): Wendy Nabity is known for her superfluity of cats and her “seven-tree obsession” every Christmas—but when strange things happen around her house, it appears someone is out to get her! Revel in comedy, suspense, and a garnish of romance.
