If You Loved Master of Crows...

If you loved my friend Grace Draven's book, Master of Crows, she has a short bonus story currently up on Amazon and Smashwords that features the principal characters from MASTER OF CROWS - Silhara and Martise. 

This isn't the sequel to MoC she's working on—just a quickie that takes place after the events in MASTER OF CROWS.  The story was written for a blog event centered around a Christmas theme. 

While she couldn't use a Christmas holiday for the story, she did use a winter festival. 

As guest of honor at a winter festival, Silhara, the Master of Crows, must light sacred fires to honor a deity. Yet the ritual reminds him that the brightest light within him is not the fire of a god but the devotion of one woman. A tale of hope and celebration.

If you'd like to revisit the world and a couple of the characters from MASTER OF CROWS, you can nab a copy of THE LIGHT WITHIN here:

Friday Finds: Queen of Hearts

Want to read a "keeper" this holiday? If you like paranormal romance with sizzle, you have to check
out the Sin City series—and right now my good friend Kristen's Queen of Hearts ebook is FREE for the holidays, so go grab it and enjoy!

Welcome to Las Vegas, home of the Sin City Collectors. The job description is easy: Bring the offending supernatural in to the Boss and don’t ask any questions.

Feline shifter Claudette Marchon traded life as a showgirl to become a Sin City Collector, giving up the glamour to earn some serious cash in order to buy her own business. Mission accomplished, she now runs a pawn shop specializing in gems and jewelry.

Life is good until a Collection job requiring her specific skill set lures her back in. The Queen of Hearts, a museum-worthy ruby and diamond necklace has been stolen from the Boss’s private collection and she’s his last hope to do what two other Collectors have already failed to do. Bring in the necklace. And the thief.

But gargoyle Jason Tennant isn’t quite the dangerous criminal Claudette expects. In fact, he’s not a thief at all. He’s former military and being set up by the real mastermind, forcing her to decide between the man she’s falling for and the man she works for. Proving Jason innocent may risk the Boss’s wrath, but Claudette’s heart says it’s a gamble worth taking.
What’s Collected in Vegas, stays in Vegas...

*All Sin City Collectors Novellas are stand alone novellas, all set within the world of the SCC. Our goal is for you to sit back and enjoy the ride as each author presents their unique story.

Sympathy, Love, and Regrets

Lovely sympathy flowers from a dear friend.

The wheel of the year is ever turning, slow though it may seem to be. And with it comes the dying away. It is the nature of all things, and is a part of the wheel of life, and no matter how much we may rail at death, it comes on a pale horse for us all.

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably already know what's been going on in my life these past couple of months and I thank those of you who sent cards, commented on my FB timeline, or sent virtual hugs and prayers.  But for those of you who only follow the blog, the reason I haven't updated in a while is because my beloved nephew passed away rather suddenly, back in Sept. and my oldest sister (his aunt) passed away October 2, 2014. It was a double shock that I am still trying to come to grips with and I know I'll be grieving for some time to come.

I have several books that were slated to release last month and this month. I was in the process of editing when my nephew died. And before I could take a breath, my sister grew horribly ill, and then passed away.  I basically dropped everything to help my family and am continuing to help us all work together to get through the tragedy and loss. I hope readers will understand and forgive me.

Once I have a better idea on new release dates, I will let everyone know. Until then, I have opened up the blog for various friends of mine to tell you about their books and upcoming releases. It's just my good fortune that they are all incredibly talented authors too. So please check out their books and if you enjoyed them, leave a review on Amazon or B&N or Smashwords for them. :)

In love and light,

Feeling Hot
By Elle Kennedy

Genre: Contemporary Romance | Navy SEALS
.99¢ For a Limited Time!

In tight quarters, anything can happen.

An Out of Uniform Story

It’s been a rough month for Navy SEAL Cash McCoy. Fresh off six months of celibacy during his deployment, he almost got into a hot blonde’s panties before they were interrupted. Since then, he still hasn’t gotten laid. The reason? He lost her number. And no other woman has replaced her face in his fantasies.

Then his CO asks him to keep an eye on his sister for a few weeks. Just until her psycho stalker ex is transferred. Cash’s new houseguest is none other than the same gorgeous, quirky blonde. And just his luck—his orders include an emphatic hands off.

Jen Scott is having none of it. Now that she has a second chance, she’s not letting Cash slip away. Orders be damned, he’s the one man capable of helping her explore her sexuality. She’s even willing to break her own rule—never date military men—to get the gorgeous SEAL into her bed.

Except Cash makes it clear he wants more than she bargained for. Much more. Not just her body, but the one thing she promised herself she’d never give to a man in uniform. Her heart.

Warning: Sexy SEAL? Check. Sassy heroine determined to seduce him? Check. Scorching hot sex bound to make you blush? Double check. A threesome and some man-on-man action? Triple check. You’ve been warned.

Winners of Shadower giveaway announced!

Happy Tuesday to everyone! This is Catherine Spangler. Cassandra has asked me to post this blog on her behalf. She is out of town because of very sad family tragedy, and I know she would appreciate your positive thoughts and prayers. She's such a special person and gives so much to other authors. Let's all show her our love and support.

Cassandra certainly didn't forget about the giveaway we offered on her Friday blog about science fiction romance. Since I'm giving away the copies of Shadower, she asked me to pick the winners from those who responded to the post. So I am . . . and I pick all five of you who responded! I know I said two copies, but what the heck :-)

So here are the winners: Christy Ashland, Natasha Moore, Jerri, Cora Zane, and Pam K. Please email me at catherinespangler@gmail.com.

The Cottage Next Door by Natasha Moore

It’s tough to grasp a second chance at love when you’re holding on to the past.

Thanks to Cassandra for inviting me as her guest today to tell you about my new release, The Cottage Next Door. It's a second-chance-at-love beach romance and this morning, with the temperature only 50 degrees outside, I could use a little beach!


After his wife died in a car accident, bestselling author Hunter McCaffrey stopped writing—and stopped living. He’s rented a beachfront cottage to try to get his head on straight, and start the long climb up from his pit of despair.

Instead of pounding out a first draft, though, he runs the beach, drinks away his pain, and tries to ignore the vibrant woman in the cottage tucked next to his.

Still floundering months after the loss of her adventure-junkie husband, Sylvie Chase hopes some beach relaxation will help her decide what to do with the rest of her life. Instead she’s wondering what to do about her unexpected attraction to Hunter, who makes her body long for the feel of his arms around her.

As Sylvie drags Hunter back to the land of the living, soon they’re agreeing to a short fling. Just to get past their sorrow, not because it means anything. But when emotions get in the way, it’s a struggle to leave the past behind and dare to love again.


“Can’t sleep?”

Sylvie started. Hunter’s disembodied voice sounded loud in the darkness. She couldn’t see a thing on the deck next door, but had to assume he was sitting in his usual deck chair. Had he heard her moan?

Her heartbeat slowed back down to normal. “No.” She held her breath, waiting for him to swear and stomp into the cottage for intruding on his want-to-be-alone time. Or make a sarcastic comment about what she’d been doing when she thought no one was there.

“This is my favorite time at the beach,” he said, surprising her with his deep, pleasant tone.

“Because you can’t see the hundreds of people around you?”

His soft chuckle surprised her even more. He was quiet for a moment, then said, “Partly. But there’s something about the ocean at night. Do you hear it? Right now, this isn’t the fun-loving shore where kids splash and make sandcastles. It’s more primitive.” He was silent for a moment, and Sylvie got caught up in the roar of the waves as they crashed onto the beach. The sound pulled at her, called to her.

“Think of the hundreds of thousands of years the ocean has been pounding the sand,” he went on. “Eating away at the land, reclaiming it. Taking it back into the bowels of the deep.”

Her body heated more, even with the cooling breeze. His voice rolled over her, as powerful as the tug of the waves. She’d known there had to be more to him than that angry, bitter man she’d seen so far.

“Ashes to ashes? Dust to dust? Ocean to ocean?” she asked softly.

The waves pummeled the shore for several long moments before he replied, “Something like that.”

The words she’d been thinking slipped out easier in the darkness. “I’m sure she would want you to be happy.”

“What do you know?” he snapped, but Sylvie thought his voice contained more hurt than anger.

“I know what it’s like to roll over in the middle of the night and still be surprised to find the other side of the bed empty.”

“It’s like a kick in the gut every time.”

“Yeah.” She wrapped her arms around her knees. “I still save up things I want to tell him about my day…”

“And then remember she’s not there to share those things with anymore.”

“I have to look at pictures to remember what he looked like when he was healthy and fit and eager for the next adventure.”

“I can’t remember what she smelled like anymore.” Hunter’s voice cracked. “She had this soft scent like powder and flowers and I don’t know what, but I used to be able to smell it everywhere in our apartment. It’s gone now too.”

She nodded even though she knew he couldn’t see it. “I used to sleep with one of Matt’s shirts and I cried all day when I realized his scent was gone.” Sylvie was pleased she could say that without getting tears in her eyes. Maybe she’d finally reached acceptance.

The Cottage Next Door is available today!! I hope you enjoy Hunter and Sylvie's story!





To celebrate the release of The Cottage Next Door, I'm giving away a $10 gift card to one commenter. Just tell me where you like to go on vacation? Would you pick the beach...or somewhere else?

Check out the tempting stories on today's Friday Finds, plus scroll down and see how you can enter to win a copy of Shadower, Book Two in The Shielder Series by National Bestselling Author Catherine Spangler!


by Catherine Spangler 

Genre: Science Fiction Romance


Injured in a bar fight and then stranded on a hellhole planet when her ship is stolen, smuggler Moriah Cameron finds herself at the mercy of arrogant Sabin Travers. She manages to elude him, but quickly realizes she has no good option to get off Calt, so she stows away on Sabin’s ship. Sabin discovers her just as she stumbles upon a secret that could affect hundreds of lives—a hidden Shielder colony.

Forced to take Moriah captive to protect that secret, he decides to take her to Elysia to have her memory altered. 

Instead of being grateful that he didn’t shut her up permanently, Moriah is infuriated about being delayed from picking up a crucial shipment. In return, Sabin resents the disruption this defiant and ungrateful woman creates in his life.

Having a strong aversion to domineering men like Sabin, Moriah manages to steal his ship and escape—after dumping him, drugged and naked, at a Pleasure Dome. Her freedom is short lived when Sabin catches up with her. He finds a way to make her pay, and she has no choice but to go along.

As they battle wills and wits across the quadrant, Moriah is shocked by her growing attraction to Sabin. But when she discovers he is also a shadower, all bets are off. She eludes him once more and heads to a dangerous but lucrative delivery. Things go wrong at the drop, and only Sabin’s major sacrifice can save her. But ultimately, it’s love, acceptance, and healing that save them both.

Keeping Up and VooDOoPad

No, I didn't get a shiny new computer, a friend brought over her laptop so I could go into SL (Second Life) for myself and "walk" around and pay on my booth (which she has been keeping up with rental payments for me and keeping it updated too) at Awen island.

I have to admit, it felt really weird. I couldn't remember the simplest things and it was like relearning it all from practically scratch, since so much had changed, even down to the controls and how to navigate.

I guess considering the last time I was in SL under my own steam was something like 2011 or 2012, it stands to reason. Nothing stays the same for very long and when you're talking computer technology or anything related to computers,  make that quadruply so. She helped me take a few pics of my avatar for posting. Within about fifteen minutes of being in SL, her laptop started to overheat and we had to use her laptop case's built in fan. After an hour, the machine was so hot nothing helped so we shut down. But the main thing I got to accomplish were the new additions to my booth in Awen, pictured below:

Pretty nifty, huh? I wish SL didn't melt computers. Because I remember what I loved about being in virtual worlds and that's the neat graphics and the odd feeling like its you really walking around and interacting with stuff and your creativity kinda soars as a by product, or at least mine did.

But until they make a computer that doesn't get fried by SL, I guess quick in and out trips on her laptop when she comes to visit are about it.

The other thing I haven't kept up with (but still thought I knew what I was doing -- of course) is the little program I used to use when I needed to "block" scenes in my story outline.  The program evolved into something else or got bought out by someone else and I sorta stopped using it and actually thought I'd switch to Scrivener since that's what the majority of my friends who write, use.

But I simply couldn't get comfortable with it like I once was with my little program (for the Mac) VooDoo Pad. Somewhere in between I decided to kick it old school and went waaay back—to index cards and pens and even—gasp!—binders! It got to be a real hassle, especially since I'm the queen of paper scrap notes. Maybe being in SL today reawakened a part of my brain that remembered there are some things computers do well and one of them is organization and note keeping, so I went online and found the latest full version of VooDoo Pad that my ancient computer could still run and installed it.

Will this keep me on track now? Yes. I think so. Or at least I believe it to be so. If anything in this world can. lol Ahh I know me too well.

Have a Mac? Want to try VooDoo Pad?

Ana Deschanel has made a terrible mistake. The only chance of protecting the other people involved is to flee New Orleans, the only home she has ever known, for the quiet solitude of Summer Island.

Summer Island, Maine (population 202) is not the tranquil escape Ana imagined. The locals are distant and cold, especially her neighbor, the reclusive veterinarian Jonathan St. Andrews. Her only lifeline is the kind but odd caretaker Alex Whitman. Showing up at all the right moments, he warns her she is completely unprepared for a Maine winter. As the first winter storm approaches to whispers of an island shutdown- Ana realizes that she may soon be cut off from the rest of the world.

After a surprising encounter with Jonathan’s brother, Finn, Ana finds herself braving the storm to return something to him. Unprepared for the Maine storm, she slips and falls onto the jagged rocks along the shore. The St. Andrews brothers find her in the nick of time, but she remains unconscious. As the storm worsens, the St. Andrews brothers learn there are other, more sinister forces at work closer than they ever imagined.

With no help from the outside world, they must find a way to protect themselves from both the storm, and the growing darkness that looms across the island.

Self-made billionaire Alex Damon wants his pound of flesh from the people who ripped his family apart. When he discovers his enemies' daughter is working at his company -- and most likely spying for them -- he decides to start his revenge by seducing her.

Natalie Hall is stunned at the personal interest from the CEO of her company. Vulnerable, with an already bruised heart, she wants to avoid any involvement -- but she can't deny the desire he arouses in her.

...but love is sweeter...

What should've been a straightforward eye-for-an-eye starts to unravel as Natalie's unflinching loyalty and kindness begin to thaw Alex's cold intent. But caring for her is unthinkable...since he plans to use everything in his power to ruin her family and everyone else she holds dear.

In fact, the beautiful Chloe tempts him beyond reason.

Friday Finds: Ropes, Spurs & More

The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire
By Cora Seton

Genre: Contemporary Romance | Cowboy/Cowgirl
FREE (until August 31, 2014)

Bella Chatham will lose everything - her veterinary practice, her animal shelter, and even her home - if she can't find another source of income, fast. So when her best friend signs her up for the hot new reality television show, Can You Beat a Billionaire, Bella accepts the challenge and hopes against hope she can win the ten million dollar prize. If she doesn't, it's bye-bye pet clinic and shelter, bye-bye Chance Creek, Montana, and hello to marriage to the billionaire for a year!

Evan Mortimer, billionaire, can't believe he's reduced to competing in a television contest to win a wife. Unfortunately, it's the only foolproof way to secure his position as head of Mortimer Innovations. At least he'll be able to dump his "spouse" at the end of the year; he's much too busy to be tied down to a country bumpkin cowgirl.

Bella doesn't expect her adversary to be handsome - or funny, or compassionate - but Evan's all three, and he's proving a tough competitor, too. When they end up sharing a tent - and a sleeping-bag - her body betrays her with a longing so deep it cuts her to the core. Still, this cowgirl must stay strong. If Evan uncovers her secret fears, he'll use them to win the contest - and then he'll own her for a year. She'll be out of luck, out of cash, and stuck being Mrs. Mortimer until he kicks her to the curb. Too bad she can't decide which is worse - winning the show and losing Evan forever, or losing the show and only being his temporary wife.

Evan can't believe he's falling for the one woman who doesn't want him. This cowgirl's not impressed by his money, his name, or his inability to sleep in a tent with her for an entire night, but every look and touch she gives him sends his desire through the roof. With a director determined to use his claustrophobia to make him look like a fool, and an adversary so sexy he can hardly see straight, he'll need all his savvy to come out on top. Too bad he's going to lose no matter how this show turns out. If he beats Bella, he'll destroy the first woman he's ever loved. If he doesn't beat her, it's bye-bye Mortimer Innovations.

Will either of them remember in time that it's not who wins or who loses - it's how they play the game that really counts?

Texas Hearts (Box Set 1–3)
By Lisa Mondello

Genre: Contemporary Romance | Western Romance | Cowboys
Only .99¢ (For a limited time)

NYTimes Bestselling Author Lisa Mondello brings you 3 thrilling western romances with 3 sexy cowboy heroes in 1 Box Set!

TEXAS HEARTS Box Set includes the stories:

Mandy Morgan swore she'd never step foot in Texas again after Beau Gentry left her for life on the rodeo circuit eight years before. But now her uncle's heart is failing and she has to convince him that surgery will save his life. She never dreamed the first thing she'd see when she stepped off the plane would be her biggest nightmare...the one man she'd never stopped loving.

Beau Gentry had the fever for two things: the rodeo and Mandy Morgan. But for Beau, loving Mandy was complicated by his father's vendetta against her uncle. This led him to make the hardest decision of his life and he can still see the bitterness and hurt on Mandy's face. All these years it has killed him to think Mandy had forgotten him and moved as far away as possible from him. But now they're back in Texas, and he's going to do all he can to win back her love.

Ever since Mitch Broader set foot in Texas, he dreamed of owning his own ranch. Now that he's bought a share in the Double T Ranch, he's one step closer to the dream. Then his past greets him in the form of a baby basket, complete with infant and birth certificate naming him as the father. He can't change diapers and work toward his dream at the same time.

When Sara Lightfoot, "Miss Hollywood" in Mitch's eyes, rescues him with her particular knack for handling his precocious son, he hires her on the spot as a temporary nanny. No matter how much Sara's dark eyes and warm heart make this bachelor think of making their arrangement permanent, she's made it perfectly clear she has other plans that don't include him or his dreams.

Sara Lightfoot never thought she'd return to her home on the reservation. Now she plans to reclaim the life she left by going back to the reservation as a Native American storyteller, teaching the Apache children stories of their culture. She didn't expect Mitch Broader's sexy smile or job offer as a live-in nanny to derail those plans. After all she's been through to come home, can she open up her heart once again to love?

As a top-notch cutting horse trainer, Cody Gentry was riding high until he lost his eyesight after a freak chemical accident. Unable to see the hand in front of his face, never mind the horse or cattle he trained, he knows his life is over and slips deep into depression. His whole future hinges on the success of an eye surgery that could give him his old life back.

When guide dog trainer, Lyssa McElhannon, arrives on his ranch like Florence Nightingale coming to save him, he wants no part of her or her guide dog. But something about Lyssa's musical laugh coupled with her tenacity digs under his skin and won't let go. Having been blind most of her life, Lyssa understands the paralyzing fear Cody feels after losing his vision. But she refuses to let the stubborn cowboy waste his life away sitting in a chair when she knows first-hand that a good guide dog can change his world. She just needs one month to prove it to him.

Falling in love with Cody was not part of Lyssa's plan, nor was having him open her eyes to see that there was a whole lot of living she'd been missing.

 ~ Read on for a snippet excerpt from my short story in the anthology.

by Cass Curtis

Excerpt, © 2014, Cass Curtis

(Eva's side of the story)
Eva didn’t need a private detective. She could tail her clueless boyfriend easily enough by following the slime trail. Yeah, not fair, but then she wasn’t in the mood. Kevin had really screwed up when he’d asked her to help him find his car keys.
Oh, she’d found them all right. Inside the pocket of his jacket, along with a receipt from Reckless Risqué, the lingerie company that put the extra in marital and the va-va vroom in the bedroom.
It didn’t make sense, at least not at first. Why would Kevin buy something there? With her birthday months away, she didn’t expect he’d remember. The man personified absentmindedness. Likewise, he misunderstood the social niceties of life or at least appeared to. Then there was the simple fact that Reckless Risqué only went up to a size twelve. The fancy scrap of lace and satin wasn’t for her.
Which left the big question. If it wasn’t for her, then who?
The guy had forgotten their special date night twice because he was just too busy, but he could find time to buy sexy lingerie for some other woman. A horrible thought occurred to her—what if she was the girlfriend on the sly and the present was for his wife? She’d seen lots of made-for-TV movies and knew there were men who had more than one family and neither knew the other existed.
Such a crazy thought wouldn’t have crossed her mind a week ago. Love equaled trust and vice versa, or so she’d always imagined. Except trust flew out the window when you’ve found a receipt from Reckless Risqué in your man’s coat pocket.

(Kevin's side of the story)

Kendra wasn’t answering her phone and she wasn’t home. Kevin hadn’t planned on spending part of his day chasing after his baby sister, the five-fingered discount shopper. But this morning he’d opened his trunk to get something out and saw the RR bag. He’d completely forgotten about it.
Kevin knew he couldn’t pass it off as something he’d bought for Eva; anything that fit his beanpole of a sister wouldn’t fit his beautiful curvy girl. And he doubted they’d take a return and refund his money, not that he planned to try. The mere idea made him uncomfortable.
The last thing he needed was Eva accidentally finding the damn thing and getting the wrong impression.
For once in his life, he had something good and he wasn’t going to let anything or anyone jeopardize it.


To celebrate the anthology here on When Midnight Comes, I'm giving away a symbol of love and friendship, a lovely little heart ring.

As you can see, it's a size 7 (non adjustable). If you scroll down you'll see it can be worn as a pinkie ring (for those of us who have hands that swell (wait til you're over 50 and you'll see what I mean, lol) or can fit the ring finger. The tiny gems are "man-made" rubies and the ring is silver electroplated.

If you'd like to win this cute little "Love Is" ring, comment on my post here and either tell me your favorite story so far in the anthology (if you've bought it), and if you haven't bought it yet, tell me how you found out about the anthology (Twitter, Facebook,  friend, one of the authors, etc).

A winner will be drawn at random on Monday, August 11, 2014. Contest ends midnight, Sunday, August 10th.
Good Luck!

Friday Finds: HEA Fairytale Romance

Redefining the classic fairytale has been one of the most beloved romance tropes of all time. Look what's playing at your local theater and you'll notice at least one wicked stepmother on the big screen and there are more in production now.

On today's Friday Finds, I'm sharing the love of all things fairytale starting with a twist. What about all the bad boys in those fairy tales? Don't they need love too? With a wave of her magic wand, author Marie Hall spies on Wonderland and tells what happened to the deliciously wicked bad boys from some of your favorite classic tales.

Grab this awesome boxed set for free before the sale ends!

Kingdom Series Collection: Books 1–3
By Marie Hall

Genre: Fantasy Romance | Fairytale Romance
FREE (Sale ends September 2014)


Her Mad Hatter:

Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter's Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate—and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys—throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.

The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland—and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy godmother's mating—or fight for Alice.

Gerard's Beauty:
A not so classic retelling of Beauty and the Beast, as seen through the eyes of the villain...

Betty Hart has had it with men. Jilted in love, her life now consists of shelving books by day, watching too much Anime by night, and occasionally dressing up like a superhero on the weekends with her fellow ‘Bleeding Heart’ nerds. Men are not welcome and very much unwanted. Especially the sexy Frenchman who saunters into her library reeking of alcohol and looking like he went one too many rounds in the ring.

Gerard Caron is in trouble. Again. Caught with his pants down (literally) he’s forced to seek asylum on Earth while his fairy godmother tries to keep Prince Charming from going all ‘Off with his head’. Maybe, messing around with the King’s daughter hadn’t been such a great idea after all, not that Gerard knew the silly redhead was a princess. But his fairy godmother knows the only way to save his life is to finally pair Gerard with his perfect mate, whether he’s willing or not.

From the moment Gerard lays eyes on the nerdy librarian he knows he must have her, but Betty is unlike any woman he’s ever known. He thought Betty would come as willingly to his bed as every other woman before her, but she is a woman who demands respect and even… horror of all horrors… love. Is it possible for a self-proclaimed Casanova to change his ways?

Red and Her Wolf:
Long ago there lived a beautiful child. Her name was Violet. Fair of skin, with blonde hair and large blue eyes. Born of wild magic, she was a woman with a child’s heart. Innocent and lovely, but not at all what she seemed--you see Violet went by another name: The Heartsong.

She was the child of fairy magic, the physical manifestation of all fae kinds unbridled power. Cosseted and pampered, she grew up in isolation, never knowing who she really was, or why there were those who’d seek to harm her.

Ewan of the Blackfoot Clan is a wolf with a problem. He’s been sent to kill the Heartsong, but the moment he lays eyes on the blonde beauty he knows he’ll defy the evil fae he works for to claim Violet as his own.

This is the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, as it really happened...

FREE (sale ends 7/28/14)

A psychopathic killer is stalking the women of Sydney . . .

Federal Agent Clayton Munro, a criminal profiler with the Australian Federal Police (AFP), has been called upon to assist in hunting down a vicious murderer who is intent upon carving up his victims while they’re still alive. Guilt-stricken over his wife’s suicide, Clayton’s forced to set aside his personal issues in order to focus on the case.

Detective Ellie Cooper is also no stranger to heartache. Pregnant and abandoned at the altar by a fiancé intent on pursuing a career with the AFP, her opinion of the elite body of officers is anything but favorable. Angered when her boss orders her to partner with the Fed, she’s determined not to cut him any slack.

But women are dying on the streets of western Sydney and the pressure is mounting to find the person responsible.

Will Clayton and Ellie be able to put aside their animosity and work together to catch a killer before it’s too late? And what about the special fascination the killer seems to have with Ellie . . .

Trauma nurse and part-time death-investigator Molly Burke is having a pretty normal night at her St. Louis Emergency Department. Then a well-connected lawyer is wheeled in, victim of a suspected suicide.

One suicide is bad. But when one grows to four in a matter of days, and all the victims are lawyers, the trend stops being an oddity and becomes a real problem.

Were these really suicides? Why would successful, hot young lawyers want to kill themselves?

Then Molly unearths secrets that powerful people don’t want exposed and the puzzle suddenly becomes a threat. Now she must find killer, or become the next victim.

Killer Image
By Wendy Tyson

Genre: Mystery
.99¢ (Sales ends July 27, 2014)

Philadelphia image consultant Allison Campbell is not your typical detective. She's more familiar with the rules of etiquette than the rules of evidence, prefers three-inch Manolos to comfy flats and relates to Dear Abby, not Judge Judy.

When Allison's latest Main Line client, the fifteen-year-old Goth daughter of a White House hopeful, is accused of the ritualistic murder of a local divorce attorney, Allison fights to prove her client's innocence when no one else will.

But in a place where image is everything, the ability to distinguish the truth from the facade may be the only thing that keeps Allison alive.
