THE LIBRARY

In 1934, the body of a beautiful, but poor young woman was found alongside a riverbank near The Depot. Beaten to a pulp, only recognizable by a tattoo on her ankle, and yet, days after the discovery, the story all but disappears.

Eighty years later, locals claim The Depot is haunted. But in all the years homicide detective Mark Waters has visited the historic 1800s train station turned restaurant, he’s never seen proof. Until now.

As he sifts through evidence of a supposed suicide by train, he learns a murder that took place eighty years ago may directly affect his case.

Six months after the strange occurrences at The Depot, there’s another murder. This time, The Library holds secrets of several murders, and the dead won’t rest until the murderer checks out too.

Note: The Library (Where Life Checks Out) is a 50k-word follow-up novel to The Depot (When Life and Death Cross Tracks), which is included in this special edition so readers who haven’t read The Depot won’t miss anything.

OF ASH AND SPIRIT ~ BARGAIN

The first book in a Curse Keepers spinoff series by New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank writing as D.G. Swank.

Who’s afraid of ghosts? Not Piper Lancaster, because even though she’s a ghost whisperer, she’s a skeptic. Piper helps her clients settle their inner demons, and that’s good enough for her-even if ghosts aren’t real.

That is until the astonishing reappearance of the ruins of the Lost Colony of Roanoke turns her world upside down. Now belief in the supernatural is at an all-time high, and people are seeing ghosts in every shadow.

There’s one problem-the reemergence of the Lost Colony has awakened both the supernatural world and Piper’s very real talent as a medium. The first time she actually sees a ghost, she thinks it’s a hallucination, a joke, anything but what it really is.

But she’s soon confronted with evidence she can’t deny. Ghosts exist, and worse, so do demons. As if that weren’t enough, Asheville has a new resident demon that’s intent on killing her, and a sinfully handsome stranger who says she’s the only one who can destroy it.

Barely able to accept the complete reversal in her convictions, Piper must discover-and embrace-her true identity before it’s too late.

Orangeberry 2013 Hall of Fame Best Romance!

Lord Gerard Lenister needed the lady…after their meeting, he wanted her.

For seventeen years Lady Eloise Granville lived in France thinking herself a bastard. Not until her life was threatened did her father cross the English Channel to reclaim her as his legitimate daughter. Now four years later a revolution roars its ugly head in France. Rumors abound of Lady Eloise’s life before her emergence in England…rumors that link her to the notorious leaders of the French Revolution.

Lord Gerard Lenister knows well the whispered connections Lady Eloise has across the Channel and the disdain that Society holds for the lady. It matters little to him. He could have cared less if she was the incarnation of a she-devil. He would marry Jezebel herself if she helped him on his mission. He is that desperate…but soon he discovers that Lady Eloise is not what she seems.
