RETALIATION~ FREE

A virgin librarian with hot-chick potential, the conflicts in her story won’t let you put the book down. Be prepared for an all-nighter…

She watches the mob kill her twin and is too frozen with fear to stop them. How can she live with that cowardice eating away at her self-respect? Revenge claws at her sheltered existence until she can’t breathe. Though she’s naïve, she isn’t stupid. When she finds a stash of loot in her brother’s gym locker, she has the means.
Now all she needs is the guts to make every one of those low-life gang members pay.

People might think detectives are hard-assed cops with no home life, but Trace McGuire has a dying mom he loves fiercely. Already stressed over his personal problems, he takes a bullet for a virgin beauty hiding while mobsters shoot her brother.
This chick draws out every protective instinct he thought had disintegrated over years on the job and he becomes invested – in her hot body, her plans for retaliation and her fighting spirit.

Helpless, he watches her enter the seedy underworld that’ll eat her alive.

Then he sees her fight.

And wonders if they’ll survive her.

Tinsley Faulkner loves art more than anything in the world. She’s a painter and owns an art gallery in the small town of Shadows Landing. But suddenly her life is changed when a man walks into the gallery looking to sell some art—art she knows is stolen. What she thinks is just a one-time thing quickly escalates into something so dangerous people have died for decades to protect it. Now Tinsley finds herself fighting for more than just her life, but to correct a historical wrong that’s affected generations of people.

FBI Special Agent Paxton Kendry had just been transferred, against his will, to the Art Crimes division in Charleston from Atlanta’s violent gang task force. Something about his transfer never sat right with him, and he’s determined to get to the bottom of it. Only Tinsley Faulkner keeps sidetracking him. Instead of ignoring the feisty artist, he finds their verbal sparring matches invigorating. Until one day Tinsley stumbles onto something bigger than either of them could imagine.

Now it’s up to Paxton to protect Tinsley as she finds herself in the middle of the most dangerous art heist of the century. But can he protect his heart along with her life, or will they disappear like the art Tinsley is willing to die to protect?

CREATUS BOOK SERIES AUDIBLE

Ancient Myths, Superheroes, Vampires…Forget Everything You’ve Heard. 

Many questions surround the origin of these sentient beings who are stronger than humans, eat differently, and live longer. But they were created just as we were, maybe even before us. It is from them we obtain our fairy tales – and our nightmares. They are the reason we believe in superheroes – and monsters. Because…they exist. 

In the past, creatus kept the human race safe from an anonymous distance. But now, one creatus will endanger them all by falling in love – with a human. In his quest to protect the woman he can never have, a twist of fate propels him into a new role that will cause dissension among his family, igniting a war. 

The Creatus series is not your normal paranormal story…it’s a realistic supernatural romantic suspense based on the myths you’ve heard your entire life. Prepare to believe….

Editorial Reviews:

“This story is completely unique, and is definitely not generic sex and vampires. In fact, I think Creatus will redefine the paranormal genre. Creatus has intrigue, suspense, romance, and tremendous depth.” (Top #50 Amazon Reviewer Vine Voice)

“This book could easily classify itself as romance/mystery/suspense/thriller…. I’m not a big Twilight fan, but I did enjoy the first movie…. I found Creatus reminding me somewhat of Twilight, but with actors I loved.” (New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Linda S. Prather)

“….well written, compassionately told, and creates characters that make you want to know them better. It is the foundation for a great series, and I believe it will be quite popular.” (Sweet Mystery Books)

When firefighters discover the body of a teenage girl at an abandoned house, Detective Amanda Steele hurries to the scene. Dumfries, Virginia is a small town, yet no one seems to have any idea who the dead girl is until Amanda finds a dragonfly pin with the name Crystal engraved on it.

Who are these girls, and why are they being picked off? Amanda must stop this killer before the pattern continues, and the death toll climbs.

When Amanda receives a taunting note from the killer, she realizes that she holds the missing piece of this puzzle.
