“No surprise that this earns five stars from me. Wishful is one of my favorite fictional places.” -Sharon H.

Maybe there hasn’t been actual blood, other than a few paper cuts, but Myles has put plenty of sweat into his independent, local newspaper, and he’s even willing to admit to a few manly tears. Certainly, the paper has been his mistress since he moved to the small town of Wishful, Mississippi, and he doesn’t feel it’s hyperbolic in the least to say it owns a piece of his soul. He’s building his dream, independent of the life laid out for him by his family, and that means everything. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do to ensure its success.

Piper fell hard for Myles when they co-stared in the production of White Christmas that saved Wishful’s historic Madrigal Theater. Not in love, she’s careful to remind herself, but into very serious like, and certainly outrageous, chemistry-fueled attraction. But Piper knows that the bright lights of the stage can wreak havoc with perspective. She’s been burnt by them before, when an on-stage passion fizzled into disappointment and heartache. That’s why she put on the brakes with Myles, and she admits to herself that the fact that he played by her rules and waited only adds to his appeal.

When Myles tells her that a major investor is pulling out of the paper, leaving him with a huge loan to repay or lose his control over what he’s built, Piper is devastated for him. But when he jokingly admits that the best option he’s come up with is to marry a showgirl to gain access to a trust fund, well, that just sounds like a plan to Piper. After all, why not take this great guy on marriage test drive? He’s worth having just for this moment, however long it lasts. But as their fake marriage turns alarmingly real, they’ll have to decide if they’re in it for the moment or forever.

For more than 200 years, the Treasure Pit on Oak Isle has baffled treasure hunters, engineers, and the common man alike. When Samantha Greene arrives, she finds her estranged father has spent years funneling energy and finances into the endeavor, finding nothing.

When an accidental death occurs in the pit, fulfilling the prophecy that seven lives must end before the treasure can be found, the search kicks into high gear, with more than one party vying for the secrets that lie below. Finding herself the closest to the treasure anyone has ever been, Samantha throws herself into the work, landing among the coveted prize. Just as she’s about to discover what’s truly hidden beneath the island, the pit begins to flood with ocean water, sweeping her away despite her attempts to swim to the surface.

Upon awaking, Samantha discovers that, not only did she not drown, but the year is 1695—one hundred years before the Treasure Pit was even discovered. Carried off by the pirate Tristan O’Rourke, a rouge Irishman with more than his share of secrets, she soon finds that there is much more than she realized in play. Will she discover the secrets of Oak Isle, or will an unexpected love keep her from finding out the truth? Will she ever make it back to her own time?

An extraterrestrial object is discovered off the coast of California; a sphere that transports humans to other solar systems. Death-row inmate Russell Harris and nine other convicts are given the chance to save their lives by agreeing to travel as test subjects on the transporter.

But when the first volunteer dies a gruesome death, it becomes clear to Russell and his comrades that the venture is little more than a merciless death mission on which they will all perish. Their only chance of survival is to uncover the secret of the mysterious object, but that too seems hopeless – because no trace of the transporter’s constructors can be found
