WOLF’S PURSUIT

Even a seer cannot foretell the future when desire and the supernatural collide.

A wolf’s pursuit to lay claim to the ruby from Merlin’s staff and to fulfill a ancient prophecy leads him straight to a local clairvoyant. Suffering from a curse, never would Dark Knight Gideon Saint-Valeri court a woman who wields magic. Yet his yearning for her surges with the approach of the Mage’s Moon, and he battles his inner beast to accept a witch as his potential fated mate.

Olivia Trudeau uses her fortune-telling abilities to raise funds and gather resources for her Appalachian community. In her never-ending battle for control, she faces her greatest revelation. But when destiny delivers a wolf shifter to her door, she doesn’t need her ability to tell her that sometimes even witches get more than they bargain for.

Danger interwoven with desire, Olivia and Gideon must fight to prevent the capture of those in her coven, the destruction of the Dark Knights, and to survive.

You’ll love Wolf’s Pursuit because it’s an action-packed Paranormal Romance with a wolf shifter turned modern-day biker and lawyer and a reluctant witch and features unexpected twists and turns.

NO PERFECT SECRET

Anna Nesmith believes she has it all–a great marriage, a dream job and a home of her own. When an investigator begins asking questions, Anna’s ordered world crashes like Jenga blocks. Frank Caburn is man to the bone and manufactures testosterone like Frito Lay does chips, which seems not to impress Anna one whit as she picks through the rubble of her shattered life. Attracted to Anna, Caburn determines to make her his own–But how to tell her without tripping over a layer of secrets is beyond him. Falling in love has never been more difficult.

WOLVER’S GOLD

Finding gold where you least expect it…

In the modern world, it’s not easy to hide an entire Wolver pack in plain sight, but the Gold Gulch pack has found a way. By day, Gold Gulch is a tourist attraction, where visitors can experience life as it once was. But when the gates close and the tourists go home, the wolves come out to play. Or do they?
When lone wolf and Special Investigator, Challenger McCall, is sent to Gold Gulch to take care of a problem that might involve the exposure of the wolver community, he finds a town that’s full of surprises, including a feisty red headed beauty who makes his wolf behave like a cub.
Rachel Kincaid has become a wolver oddity; a spinster who refuses to mate. Why would she, when she already has to take care of the short-staffed hotel, its restaurant and her ne’er-do-well father? She’s tired of having her decisions made for her and being treated like a child and when she finds herself irresistibly drawn to the handsome newcomer, the seeds of rebellion blossom.
Things get complicated when Rachel’s wolf awakens after a long and celibate sleep and the town’s women seem to awaken along with it. Papa’s gambling debts leave them on the brink; the pack is at risk; and the women rebel. Oh, and don’t forget the murders. If ever a pack needed rescuing, Gold Gulch is it.
Together, McCall and Rachel scheme to bring Gold Gulch into the 21st century, both aware that the price of that freedom could cost them their love and their lives

As the events director of the newly restored Wayfair Inn, she has the support of her best friends, Linnie and Jada.

Cat knows she should keep Ryan at a distance, but she’s drawn closer by the heartbreak he tries to hide. Will uncovering his secrets derail the new life Cat hopes to achieve…or will she gain something to cherish forever?
