41zUjYtaZMLTHE ANGEL’S SONG ~ COMING JANUARY 1

KINDLEUNLIMITED

Cyrus Hunt returns home to the Appalachian mountains after years of traveling. He has learned a great deal about himself from his journey and he realizes that the time has come to make peace with his brother and his past. When he arrives in the small town where he grew up he finds that he has a granddaughter that he never knew existed, and she almost the same age as his daughter. The two girls grow up as close as sisters. But one is more beautiful than a star filled night sky, while the other has a physical condition that keeps her from spreading her wings and discovering her own self-worth. As the girls grow into women the love they have for each other is constantly tested by sibling rivalry, codependency, and betrayals. Are these two decedents of Cyrus Hunt destined to repeat their father’s mistakes? Or will they rise above their human weakness and inadequacies and honor the bonds of blood and family that unite them?

419c6LAZhmL._SY346_BEFORE WE WERE STRANGERS

Something happened to her mother that night. Something no one wants to talk about. But she’s determined to uncover her family’s dark secrets, even if they bury her.

Five-year-old Sloane McBride couldn’t sleep that night. Her parents were arguing again, their harsh words heating the cool autumn air. And then there was that other sound—the ominous thump before all went quiet.

In the morning, her mother was gone.

The official story was that she left. Her loving, devoted mother! That hadn’t sat any better at the time than it did when Sloane moved out at eighteen, anxious to leave her small Texas hometown in search of anywhere else. But not even a fresh start working as a model in New York could keep the nightmares at bay. Or her fears that the domineering father she grew up with wasn’t just difficult—he was deadly.

Now another traumatic loss forces Sloane to realize she owes it to her mother to find out the truth, even if it means returning to a small town full of secrets and lies, a jilted ex-boyfriend, and a father and brother who’d rather see her silenced. But as Sloane starts digging into the past, the question isn’t whether she can uncover what really happened that night…it’s what will remain of her family if she does?

51VMerdX6hLLOVE, HOPES, & MARRIAGE TROPES

KINDLEUNLIMITED

A wedding and a murder…Star football player and NFL hopeful, Michael “Bumper” Hackett is getting married. Word’s going around that it’s a shotgun wedding, and there just might be some truth to it, seeing that the bride-to-be is showing a baby bump. But before the ceremony can even get started, the poor groom collapses from what appears to be an asthma attack. Unfortunately, things aren’t always what they seem.

Romaine knew it was a bad idea to have a wedding at the funeral home, but newly elected justice of the peace and sole proprietor of the Ball Funeral Home & Crematorium, her Auntie Zanne, thought it was a perfect way to advertise her business. Instead, it’s another murder that’s been dropped on her doorstep. That can’t be good for business!

Add to that, Romaine’s beau from up north shows up out of the blue and has her hoping for her chance at happily ever after and escaping her tiny hometown of Roble. First, though, a murder has to be solved and Romaine pairs up with her Auntie Zanne (against the direct order of Romaine’s first cousin, Sheriff Pogue Folsom), and aims to catch the killer before the Friday Night Lights go on

51cDj-Bjf9LHER MR. MIRACLE

Veronica “Ronnie” Clark has had it up to here with her family. So she shoves her suitcase into the trunk of her car along with that billowy, lacy, monstrosity of a bridal gown and hits the road. Unfortunately, her old Volvo gives out, leaving her stranded on Christmas Eve in the nearly deserted seaside town of Ocean City, Maryland. Oh, boy, does she ever need a miracle!

And like Christmas magic, her Mr. Miracle appears. Adam Rone stops to offer her assistance, and once the tow truck drives away with the Volvo, he suggests she stay at Ocean Dreams, the hotel he owns and operates in the tourist town.

Ronnie is drawn to the compassionate single dad, and the attraction they feel is undeniable. But when she learns all he’s going through to keep his family together, she can’t bring herself to reveal to him that she’s running from hers. All she wants is for him to take her in his arms and kiss her, but he keeps asking about that stupid wedding dress!

Look for all the titles in the Ocean City Boardwalk Series… where life isn’t just fun in the sun—love is waiting on those sandy shores!

41zCMnZ-TgLCREATUS TALIS ~ COMING DECEMBER 18

New Release in the Creatus Saga!

For four thousand years, creatus elders have insisted that the creatus population concealed themselves from human beings because humans had hunted the creatus almost to extinction…

But one woman’s research reveals that when creatus first arrived on this planet, humans didn’t fear the alien beings that looked so much like the human race. That is, until the creatus started to breed with humans, creating a ferocious killer feared by humans and creatus alike. A creature so fierce that its legacy of death and destruction has fed nightmares for millennia. And now, a new breed of creatus has been born — or rather, reborn.

Vev, one of the first generations of creatus talis, finds herself torn between her younger family members and a forbidden love as she fights to save the young talis from being turned into a weapon — or worse, annihilation.

ScreamfortheCamera (1)SCREAM FOR THE CAMERA ~ COMING JANUARY 29

A murder…broadcast for thousands to see…has just become a viral sensation.

A brutal, methodical murderer, known as the Facebook Live Killer, has cold-bloodedly killed vibrant, beautiful young women in front of the whole world. The heartless bastard streams the footage on Facebook Live.

The latest killing stuns the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Known for its sun, sand, and sea, the vacation paradise hasn’t seen a murder in over ten years. Now the residents fear a murderer lives among them…taunting them…terrified this is only the beginning.

For Massachusetts State Police Detective, Lieutenant Mason Conrad, the case couldn’t have come at a worst possible time. His life is in the midst of an upheaval. Newly divorced, he is heavy in debt with a child to raise. But he knows the clock is ticking. Someone who blatantly kills in this manner won’t stop.

Moving to the island five years ago, Ettie Harwell came with secrets. Secrets she had hoped never to reveal. Then, the haunting dreams returned. Night after night, visions pull her back into the world she’d prayed she’d never have to face again.

The murders have thrown Mason and Ettie together, plunging them into, not only the Dark Web but a dark world. They have no choice but to track down a demon-possessed killer before he strikes again…and time is running out.

forbidden, sexy office romance stand-alone from USA Today best-selling author Sedona Venez.

Jayla is trouble, and she’s just my type of woman.

I was damned when I watched her stroll into the office building her first day of work. In a matter of minutes, she shattered my control.

I’ve been obsessed with her bombshell body since that day.

But I’m her boss.

So, my fixation on her is totally inappropriate, especially when she hasn’t shown a bit of sexual interest in me—or so I thought … up until recently.

I’m a Dom, and I sense she is a natural submissive, albeit one who seems inexperienced with men. My instincts tell me that the right man can not only bring out her external beauty, but sexually awaken her as well.

Now that I’ve set my sights on her, I’m not going to back down until I get what I want.

And, as everyone in the office knows, I always get what I want.

As with all my books, this stand-alone is safe with no cheating and a guaranteed HEA.

The Valiant was supposed to save us. Instead, it triggered the end of the world.

Earth is in shambles. Everyone, even the poorest among us, invested in the Valiant’s space mining mission in the hopes we’d be saved from ourselves. But the second the ship leaves Earth’s atmosphere, our fate is sealed. The alien invasion begins. They pour into cities around the world through time portals, possessing humans, forcing us to kill one another.

And for whatever reason, my brother is their number one target.

Now the fate of the world lies in the hands of me, a seventeen-year-old girl, but with the help of my best friend, Justin―who’s suddenly starting to feel like more―maybe if we save my brother, we can save us all…

AUTHOR BIO:

My stories overflow with romance, suspense, a hint of humor and, of course, a few Kleenex moments. After all, what would a great story be without an emotional event setting the stage? All of my novels are sensual, but not erotic, gripping but not graphic, and will make you cry, laugh, love, and hope. Although some of my books include supernatural or ghostly beings, my stories dance on the edge of make believe. My hope is that as you read my stories, you’ll wonder, “Hmmm…what if?”

Like most authors, I blame my leap into a full-time career as a professional writer on my love of reading. Reading has always been an escape for me. When life was rough as a child, I could always disappear into a book. But I found something else too… I discovered that writing out my thoughts was healing. Not only could I create hope for my protagonists, but I could do away with the antagonists–legally.

When I penned my first novel, “She Belongs to Me,” I allowed only my cousin and best friend to read it. They are the reason I write. They pushed me to publish, as they felt my stories would give hope to others who’ve experienced tragedies. So now, even though I still write for myself, I also write for my readers who continually tell me that my words touched their soul.

Currently, my husband of twenty-seven years and I live in California with a very spoiled “rescued” calico we lovingly refer to as “Baby Kitty,” even though she’s eleven years old. Hubby and I love to experience different areas, so we move a lot. We’ve lived on both of Florida’s coasts: Cocoa Beach and Tampa Bay; Charlotte, North Carolina; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Chicago, Illinois; Bullhead City, Arizona; and now the Northern Central Valley of California. But we’re always looking for our next adventure, so we travel every chance we get.

Most of my novels share some of our favorite hobbies, mostly, anything to do with the great outdoors. We both love to read on the beach–or in a coffee shop if it’s raining–and if the weather is really nice, we love to go kayaking and hiking. We rarely spend our days off at a movie theater or the mall. In fact, I hate shopping, and my hubby would rather do anything other than take me to a movie when I’ve already read the book. 🙂

#NewRelease Amazon:  iBooks:  Nook:  Kobo: 

When you’re at the top, there’s nowhere to go but down.

Two talented skaters. Two bright futures. Two shining stars. One ruined by a career-ending scandal and another by a father’s ruthless ambition.

Marina Sanders was the darling of the winter games, winning a bronze in figure skating one week after losing both parents in a car accident. Four years later, she was the most hated woman in America.

Drew Delacorte was the future of the Sockeyes hockey team, crowned the best young player in the league and heir-apparent to the hockey throne once occupied by his father. Only Drew doesn’t want that throne. Despite being in the prime of his career, he’s considering hanging up his skates.

Together they’re fire and ice, and when things get that hot, they melt. Can these two broken souls find comfort and courage in each other’s arms or will they find only pain and regret?

His Wife for a While “There is more to this book than just romance… I found myself crying… It is a story of how, with the help of others, we can overcome tragedy.”

Bargaining Bride
