ROMANTIC PICKS #HAPPYNEWYEAR #RECOMMENDEDREADS FOR THE NEW YEAR

THE LIBRARY ~ BARGAIN ~ $0.99

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.

ROMANTIC PICKS #RECOMMENDED #FREE eBOOK Dare the Devil by Elaine Raco Chase

LIMITED TIME ONLY!

SAVE A HORSE – RIDE THIS DEVIL OF A COWBOY!

Welcome to Glacier Country! Luthor Devlin and his ranch hands were out tracking 20th century rustlers when they stepped into a time warp!

There on the jagged cliffs was a woolly mammoth, a sabre-toothed tiger and her – a tawny, near-naked savage. She was a primal fantasy come true – that left him stunned!

His gaze was locked onto hers. “I’d really appreciate an explanation of all this. You, the hairy elephant, and the cat with the overbite are not the norm in Montana. And I know you can understand my every word. So anytime you’d like to begin.”

Her relaxed appraisal hadn’t gone unnoticed by either the man or the large tiger. The latter proved her undoing. His mouth opened not to snarl again but to emit a long, loud, kittenish yawn. The tiger rolled over, rubbed his back and shoulders into the ground, his hind legs spread-eagle, yawned again, and pawed sleepily at his face. To the amazement of everyone, his sword-like teeth fell out.

“Damn it, Pumpkin, why couldn’t you have just growled!” She extended her hand. “Cam Stirling, action technician.” At his confused expression, she sighed. “Stunt woman.”

She was wild, irresistible – and he was the man to tame her. She dared the devil every day – why not Luthor Devlin!

Meet Luthor Devlin and Cam Stirling in Dare the Devil:

His large hands settled possessively in the curve of her waist. “Luck and chance threw us together and I don’t think it would be a good idea to tempt fate.” He lowered his head, his mustache and lips teased the sensitive cord of her neck, moving ever so slowing upward to take leisurely possession of her lips. His tongue teased its way into the lush recesses beyond, savoring her sweetness before his mouth moved lower.

Cam leaned forward, her face snuggling into the curve of his neck. Her nose inhaling the scent of him, spice and leather and masculine sweat. Another louder, longer, mournful moan caused her to blink her eyes open.

She shuddered again and whispered into Thor’s ear. “I know you were very happy to see me, but I really hope that is a big gun in your pocket.”

“Hmmmm…what?” He looked up and found her eyes wide and fearful.

“We have company. Dangerous company.”

She invented him!

At least she thought she had!

Kit Forrester lived a life of lies – so what was one more? When her first vacation ever sank like the Titanic – she couldn’t tell her friends THAT! So she did what she always did – she lied.

Kit told everyone about her fabulous five day cruise. Her days of fun in the sun and moonlit nights with the man of her dreams – Rafe Morgan – tall, handsome, incredibly sexy and successful. And well – now they were engaged!

There was just one 6’2″, 230 lb. problem –

Rafe Morgan did exist and he wanted answers.

Retired Navy SEAL and Texas business tycoon, Rafe Morgan was sure he was being set up by his suddenly acquired fiancee.

He had spent 20 years in the Navy and was trained to handle anything – until he came up against one volatile New York redhead with wicked curves and the world’s hardest ass!

Then he saw her sex lair and was more than willing to be Caught in a Trap. And to set one of his own!

ROMANTIC PICKS #RECOMMENDED #PARANORMAL Creatus by Carmen DeSousa

81E8DHssFaL._SL1500_

Creatus is the first novel in a planned eight-book paranormalromantic-suspense series. If you haven’t read the prequel novella, CREATUS (They Exist), I recommend that you download it first. It doesn’t give away any secrets of the creatus series, but it sets the stage for what’s to come, and you will better understand the characters’ actions in book one. 

Kristina knows he exists. She witnessed his supernatural strength when he saved her life and his sorrow when he failed to save her mother. She knows he watches over her from a distance. And she will do whatever it takes to get his attention, even throw herself off the highest bridge in Boston to force him out of the shadows.

Derrick is one of the creatus, created beings who have been on earth more than four thousand years. 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, they kept the human race safe from an anonymous distance. But now Derrick must come out of the darkness to save a woman he has no business loving, even if doing so may threaten his entire race.

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