Second book in a new series by RWA Golden Heart® winning author and RITA® Finalist, AE Jones

Sheila Hampton knows how to take care of herself. After being banished from her close-knit woodland nymph clan for defying her father, she has made her way in the human world on her own.

Now she works as an exercise instructor for stressed-out paranormal brides. If she can tell a vampire that no exercise plan in the world will help her lose weight, she can handle anything. Until her father lifts her banishment and tries to force her to marry as part of a political power play, and an unlikely hero steps forward.

Charlie Tucker is used to being on his own. A sea nymph with no ties to his clan, he joined the Navy and became a SEAL. He’s been in war zones. Eaten bugs to survive. So posing as Sheila’s fiancé should be a simple protection detail. No problem.

Except there is a problem—several, actually. Their clans are mortal enemies. They have to pretend to be in love when they can’t stand each other. Plus, they have to plan the biggest fake nymph wedding of the century. And when Sheila’s life is threatened, these two loners must put aside their differences and rely on each other.

Can this paranormal Romeo and Juliet find a way to change their tragic ending to a happily ever after?

Vonnie Davis welcomes readers to Wounded Warrior Falls! In this sizzling contemporary series, broken heroes meet women worth fighting for—and discover the healing power of love.

Navy SEAL Dustin Frank can handle physical pain; it’s his soul that needs mending. After losing part of his leg in an explosion, the panic triggered by his PTSD nearly drives him over the edge. So Dustin retreats to the Eagle Ridge Ranch, a charming hideaway tucked into the Hill Country of Texas. There he finds solace in the arms of a shy beauty who reawakens desires he thought he’d lost forever—and who makes him want to lose control, just when he needs it most.

Kelcee Todd sees beyond Dustin’s scars to the real man beneath: fiercely protective, strong yet tender. She wants nothing more than to feel his battle-hardened hands on her body. However, Kelcee is not the ordinary small-town girl she appears to be. Her brother is a killer with ties to the Russian mob, and after her testimony put him in prison, he’s out and eager for revenge. Now Dustin is her best defense, even if it could cost him everything. Kelcee could never ask him to make that sacrifice . . . but she can’t stop him, either.

STAY BURIED is the first book in the Orchard Falls series about sexy hot, former military heroes who believe they have gone up against the scariest things life has to offer and still came out on top. But no amount of military training can prepare them for the most difficult challenge of all—falling in love.

John Ryder has secrets—dead bodies and two million dollars. The type of secrets that could ruin relationships, end careers and get somebody killed. Which is why they should remain buried.

With a bullet lodged in his heart his military career is now over and Ryder returns to his home town in Orchard Falls, Pennsylvania where he realizes he’s alone. His ailing father hates his guts. His much younger twin brothers are leaving for college soon. And a woman from his past is now his next door neighbor and is driving him crazy while he’s having lusty thoughts of another woman.

Caroline Appleby can’t seem to stay away from her new neighbor. But sexy, bad boy John Ryder isn’t interested in her unless she’s willing to hop into bed with him. And while she is willing, she wants more than just a sexual relationship with him. Why can’t he open up to her? What is he hiding? And why does he look at her the way he does with those black murderous eyes? She wants to rip away the layers and see what’s on the inside of this man who doesn’t think he deserves to be loved.

Years ago, Ryder and his friends made a pact to cover up a murder and never speak of it again. But when a member of that pact ends up dead, and people start pointing the finger at him, it’s time to take action. Only he never meant for Sweet Caroline to get into the middle of it all. Now her life is being threatened and it is up to Ryder to risk exposing his secrets in order to save her.

Heartache. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Redemption… It’s time to head back to Magdalena, New York, and spend a little time with the people we love to love and even a few we love to hate.

Only one thing is missing from Tess and Daniel “Cash” Casherdon’s perfect life—a child. Oh, how they long for one to make their life complete. But what is it people say about being careful what you wish for…? Their wish will come true, but not in the way they think.

Daniel Casherdon’s past is about to catch up with him. It’s bad enough when a woman arrives in Magdalena with a nine-year-old boy she claims is his, but confessing to a terminal illness and asking Tess and Cash to raise the boy when she’s gone? Well, that’s going to require a big leap of faith that won’t be easy or without repercussions. How can anyone refuse a dying mother such a heartbreaking request? Tess is torn between doing right by the child and acknowledging that another woman has given the man she loves something she may never be able to—a child.
