“Ms. Harper has a unique ability to set the stage and then turn the outcome completely upside down – surprising me more than once in this series. It’s a love story that had me crying and laughing and hoping.” -P.M.

The complete heart-stopping literary romance in three volumes.

Is it really possible to know your soulmate at sixteen? If you were sixteen in 1966, it would be impossible to foresee the next score of years: sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll, the Vietnam War, tragedy … parenthood. From that first Labor Day in sultry Bayou Bois Sec when the boy who worked at the marina wrote their fates on a receipt: I’M GOING TO MARRY YOU, 16-year-old Michelle and Adrien’s lives will never be the same—and will be the richer, the more passionate, the more fully lived for it.

And along with big, heartstopping, meant-to-be romance, there’s a little something of everything else that pleases: the New Orleans music scene, paranormal and metaphysical elements, vibrant period drama, even a taste of action-adventure on the bayou. M.A. Harper’s compelling prose is both lyrical and piercing, each beautifully written novel rich in in-depth characterization and atmospheric setting.


Michelle is the only daughter of a wealthy Texas oil tycoon. Adrien Paul (A.P.) is a poor Cajun boy who helps his family get by working at a Bayou Bois Sec bait shop and playing guitar in local haunts several nights a week. They couldn’t come from more different worlds, but it doesn’t matter. Because The Girl Who … begins with every girl’s (and every woman’s) ultimate romantic fantasy—meeting the man of your dreams and realizing it, in one head-spinning moment, when both white-hot passion and everlasting love are ignited in a millisecond. Equally in both of you.

From their first spin around the dance floor at the Come On Inn, when A.P. sings close to Michelle’s ear “Mickey, you caught my eye / And that’s the reason why / You gotta / Help me, Mickey / Help me get her out of my heart…” to the family drama and sheer tragedy that separates them, theirs is much more than the story of a couple of love-stricken teenagers. It’s the real thing.


Cajun musician A.P. (Adrien) Savoie gets a second chance when the love of his life, his ex-wife Michelle, shows up in New Orleans unexpectedly, mostly to give him hell. It’s not long before Michelle once again falls under the dazzling spell of New Orleans and its music, and gradually, just a little bit at a time…the charismatic Adrien himself. Can they make a new beginning?

We’re not going to lie: this is no formula romance. But it’s such a good love story it’ll give you goose bumps.


The scene’s shifted dramatically—now it’s a triangle, but not the usual kind. Award-winning chef Phil Randazzo, and his anthropologist wife, Michelle, are as happy as any newlyweds with five kids and a ton of history. But something’s eerily amiss.

Michelle’s younger child has an imaginary playmate, “Casper”, who seems responsible for all sorts of unexplained mischief. And nothing explains that dude Phil saw upstairs who looked exactly like Michelle’s dead husband, Cajun musician A.P. Savoie.

The virus causes such a high fever, that the body succumbs in days. It is everywhere. The death rate is out of control.

When an outbreak of H7N2, or as the news calls it, Whitby Fever, begins striking cats and dogs, it is newsworthy, but not panic-inducing. After all, instances of cross- breed infection with H7N2 are rare. Clare Ashton knew better, yet she was labeled insane when she tried to get the word out, until it is confirmed that Whitby Fever has crossed the boundaries, spreading from domestic pets to humans at an astronomical rate.

Mills Run, Ohio is not much different from any other small town. The residents have a bond and kinship. The townspeople brag that Mills Run is isolated, and at times, cut off from the rest of the world. However, not even Mills Run is secluded enough for a global pandemic.

However, when the virus strikes, the townspeople of Mills Run quickly learn they are not immune. Clare, like every other mother, sister, and daughter in the world, does her part to fight and help those around her who she loves. A face mask may be her armor, her good heart may be her shield, but there is no weapon to defeat the fever because there is no cure. Mother Nature rages a viral war against the world and Mills Run is one of the millions of battlegrounds fighting to live.

“Trust me, buy the bundle!!! You can thank me later!” -Ashley G.

Aurora Sky narrowly escapes death only to end up as a vampire hunter with unusual cravings and heightened desires. To protect the people she loves, she will have to make sacrifices, and evade the biggest threat of all . . . a forbidden love. Fast-paced and full of twists, the Aurora Sky series takes an entirely new, sci-fi approach to what it means to be a vampire.

AURORA SKY (Volume 1)

If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it’s to get off the iceberg she calls home. Then a near-fatal car wreck changes everything. Government agents step in and save Aurora’s life in exchange for her services as a vampire hunter. In Alaska. Basically she’s a glorified chew toy. All thanks to her rare blood type, which sends a vampire into temporary paralysis right before she has to finish the job . . . by hand.

Now Aurora’s stuck with an overzealous partner, a group of misfit friends, and a maddening attraction to a rebellious man keeping secrets of his own.


Love bites.

Probation sucks.

Thanks to Dante’s recklessness, Aurora is now partners with Valerie: the redheaded, backstabbing vixen.

Dante is in full flirt mode. Fane’s tactics are more ruthless. Something carnal has awakened in Aurora and neither boy is helping tame her cravings.

When a member of the unit’s team is found dead, Aurora and Valerie are sent after a vampire in Sitka, but Aurora suspects the killer’s much closer to home.

STAKEOUT (Volume 2.5)

Noel Harper got a second chance at life when the government recruited her as an undercover vampire informant. Since the day they brought her back from the good-as-dead, she has wanted to prove herself worthy.

When a member of her investigative unit is murdered, Noel is paired up with a vampire hunter named Dante to spy on a suspect in Fairbanks. The problem? They’re not the only ones on stakeout. Taking down murderous vampires is one thing. Dealing with the past is another. But this time, Noel isn’t letting fear win. She’s calling in help from the other side and discovers a shocking secret along the way.

BAD BLOOD (Volume 3)

Aurora returns from boot camp to a new assignment, an unwelcome roommate, and the increasingly amorous attentions of a certain vampire hunter.

College is starting, and so is Aurora’s undercover work at a network of swanky parties known as “Tastings” for high rolling vampires who like their blood laced with fine wine. But Aurora’s not the only one on the prowl. An underground investigation is under way to find out who killed one of Anchorage’s most prominent vampires… and Aurora is a prime suspect.

“This was a wonderful read..strong well thought out characters.” -Cheryl M.

Every witch needs an animal companion – but she never bargained for this!

Savannah Goode has not had an easy existence. An African-American woman with a sensual, Earth Mother Goddess body, she knew from an early age that she was “different,” hailing from a long line of solitary witches. Her two older half-sisters continue to torment her on a daily basis, but somehow she refrains from turning them into toads as she struggles to keep a promise to their late father and run the small Chicago restaurant that was his legacy.

Things get even more complicated on the night of a full moon, when a Werewolf gone Rogue accidentally stumbles into the sacred circle during one of Savannah’s ceremonial rituals. On the run from Pack authorities and wanted for murder, Justin Waylan finds himself caught up in Savannah’s spell – literally! – and is forced to hide out at her house until she can find a way to reverse the charm and set him free. And the sooner the better, as it doesn’t take long before this handsome but annoying, smart-mouthed wolf starts to try his reluctant hostess’ patience.

As that mischief-maker Fate would have it, Savannah and Justin soon become entangled in each other’s problems, unexpectedly and inexplicably bringing them closer together. Can a kind-hearted Human witch help an errant Werewolf with a criminal past to prove his innocence before he’s put to death by his vengeful Pack? And will the intense, blossoming attraction they have begun to feel for one another be a blessing, or a curse?

It will take a lot of magic, and a little assistance from the spirit world, to get them out of this dangerous mess…but will it be too late?

No Middle Ground is Book One of Seven in the ongoing Middleton’s Pride military space opera series, set in the 14-books-and-counting Spineward Sectors universe written by the Wachter brothers, Luke Sky and Caleb.

When the Empire abandoned the Spineward Sectors to their own devices, it was left to an underappreciated few like lifelong military man Tyrone ‘Tim’ Middleton and his crew of misfits aboard the aged Pride of Prometheus to keep their corner of the galaxy safe from forces which would tear it apart.

This action-packed, character-driven space opera series is full of ship battles, space marine slugfests, interstellar politics, and at fourteen total books already written in the universe–including four in this particular sub-series–this team of author brothers is just getting started on this epic saga.
