No matter how far and how fast you run, the truth is never far behind.

CIA counter-terrorism expert Manuel Ramirez has spent the last three years looking for the woman he loves, who disappeared without a trace while on a post-graduate trip to France.

Then, as suddenly as she disappeared, Jules Trehan turns up in a small-town Colorado hospital bed, injured in an explosion that killed her parents. Manny is shocked by the change in the woman he once knew. Kidnapped by a shadowy organization, Jules has been forced to become the very thing he's pledged his life to defeat–a terrorist assassin.

Knowing her testimony will finally bring down the organization, Manny races to get her to Washington, D.C. in one piece. Just when there's a glimmer of hope of overcoming her past, Jules must pull off one last job or Manny's life will be forfeit. It's a mission she must complete…even if it means betraying the only man she has ever loved.

This book was previously published under the name of Sharon Long. It has been revised and rewritten for the 2011 release.

Long Time Gone Long Time Gone by Meg Benjamin
Genre: Contemporary
Length: 280 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-129-8, Series: Konigsburg, Texas
Price: $16.00 Limited time sale-priced for $11.20

A future with the woman of his dreams is within his grasp…if the past will stay that way.

Konigsburg, Texas , Book 4

Erik Toleffson wasn't looking to become Chief of Police. He's got enough trouble trying to rebuild his relationship with his three brothers who, until just recently, ran the other way when he approached. He's not the bully they grew up with, but bad memories are tough to overcome.

Morgan Barrett is as worn out as a vat full of crushed grape skins. She never planned to run Cedar Creek Winery, but there's no one else to shoulder the load as her father recovers from an injury. All she needs is a little sleep. Just a five-minute nap in the booth at the Dew Drop Inn…if that guy across the bar would stop staring at her as if putting her head down on the table is a crime.

After Morgan yawns in Erik's face, there's nowhere to go but up. With time, though, their relationship warms like a perfectly blended Bordeaux. Until the shady mayor digs into Erik's past and dredges up information that could drive a permanent wedge between him and his brothers–and sour any chance of a future with Morgan.

Product Warnings: Contains hot sex with mango sherbet, crooked politicians, yuppy bikers, Bored Ducks, and a Maine Coon Cat with attitude.

Angel: 1089 Angel: 1089 by C.C. Bridges
Genre: GLBT, SciFi – Futuristic, Angels & Demons, Cyberpunk
Length: 224 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-205-9

When this deal breaks, Heaven will fall.

Heaven Corp, Book 1

Catching two demon burglars is routine for Gabriel 1089, who's one cog in an army of cybernetically modified humans protecting the sky city of Heaven. Until two turns into a twenty-demon ambush. When he wakes up, he's missing his network-enabled halo–and one of his metal wings.

The down-level junk dealer tending Gabe's wounds has hands that spark nerve endings he never knew he possessed. But for an angel cut off from Heaven, an attic in Old Trent feels more like a trap than a sanctuary.

Demons on his doorstep are nothing new for Jeff Werth. Ever since they saved his daughter's legs, they've been calling in their marker. In exchange for his services–nursing Gabe back to health so they can use him as a pawn in their war with Heaven–they'll consider the debt paid in full. Except having a powerless angel at his mercy feeds a rising desire that has him rethinking the deal.

Then the de-haloed Gabe begins having dreams that become visions…then memories. Until he's not sure whose side he's on. Heaven, or the simple family man who healed his broken wings…and made his heart whole.

Product Warnings: The sexual awakening of an angel, some wing porn, abuse of heavenly clichés and a dog who steals the show.

Savage Transformation Savage Transformation by Lexxie Couper
Genre: Paranormal, Red Hots!!!, Shape-shifters
Length: 264 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-208-0, Series: Savage Australia
Price: $15.00 Limited time sale-priced for $10.50

She thought she had a life–until being hunted shows her she's never really lived.

Savage Australia, Book 2

Jacqueline Huddart has spent her entire adult life on the run. Not from the law, or even a jealous lover. From herself–and what she is. That strategy works for her until a funeral demands she return to home ground, and her best friend disappears. Finding Delainie means Jackie must confront the truth…and accept the help of a mysterious, sexy-as-sin Texan.

Marshall Rourke isn't the only one flying under the radar. He's on an off-the-grid quest to track down a rogue ex-partner who hunts paranormal beings for the joy of the kill. Convincing the unexpectedly feisty Jackie to trust him isn't easy, but there's no better way to lure the hunter into the open than to dangle as unique a target as Jackie–the last Tasmanian Tiger shifter in existence.

Trouble is, Marshall hadn't counted on Jackie's brutal right cross. Or the fact that her simmering sexuality calls to his inner wolf on every imaginable level. And that the killer is about to use their desire to add them both to his trophy case…

Product Warnings: This title contains the following: explicit sex out in the bush, wild shifter sex in an abandoned shack, passionate sex in a hotel shower. Plus a Texan hero with a very big secret, an Australian heroine with an even bigger one, a significant amount of violence and as always, Australian sarcasm.

Genre: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense
Length: 264 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-171-7
Price: $15.00 Limited time sale-priced for $10.50

Tragedy gave them a second chance. Now they've got everything to lose.

Zach Ryler always prided himself on his ability to handle anything life flung at him. Nothing could have prepared him for his sister's brutal murder, let alone being named legal guardian of her three children. Now, the only person who can help him is the one woman he vowed never to touch again. The one woman his love couldn't fix.

Rebecca James never stopped loving Zach, even after her infertility slowly crushed her spirit and destroyed their marriage. Suddenly Fate has dropped her dream in her lap: a family. But opening her heart to them–and to Zach–is a risk she wonders if she's ready to take.

As Zach and Rebecca struggle to help the children deal with their grief, they slowly begin to rediscover the passion they thought they'd lost. Just as they believe that this time they can get it right, shadows from the past close in, tearing at the fragile bonds they've forged. And a lethal predator is waiting and watching, one who will stop at nothing to protect his secrets…even murder.

Product Warnings: This title contains sex, violence, gut-wrenching emotion, three children and a puppy who risk stealing your heart, and an evil villain guaranteed to keep you up at night.

Price: $15.00 Limited time sale-priced for $10.50

No matter how far you run, the past is never far behind.

Paintbrush, Book 2

Gillian Harwood and her daughter are off the grid and on the run. One wrong turn later, they're lost in a Wyoming backwater–and headed right for a man on horseback. Gillian hits the brakes, but not quick enough.

The horse is fine. The man? Not so much. Sure, he's pissed as hell, but Gillian's faced far worse. She can handle one grumpy cowboy with a bum knee. That is, until she uses her skills as a masseuse to make it all better.

Quint Walters knows a wounded animal when he sees one. Sexy, secretive Gillian shows all the signs of a grown-up runaway. He should know, he's spent his life running from his father's expectations. Her magic touch leaves him wanting more, and as she waits for car repairs, she seems to fit naturally into small-town life, and his heart. Except she resists all his efforts to get at her core.

One mishap after another makes it seem like Fate is conspiring to throw Gillian in Quint's path–and into his arms. The heat they generate, though, isn't enough to drown out the nagging feeling that the past is about to smoke her out of hiding…

Product Warnings: Sparks that ignite the whole town, dangerous secrets and some much-deserved butt-kicking.

It's not every day a woman faces down the bitch who owns her man's soul.

Elementals, Book 1

Xia is sick and tired of having her ass served to her every bloody night. Exhausted, she soldiers on, working the Scottish dream beat alone, seeking to identify those who plot to awaken Aqua, one of the four slumbering elements. Should Aqua fully open her eyes, she won't be happy until she picks her teeth with the bones of the last human on earth.

When an assassin tags Xia, her new guardian arrives–a seal shifter linked to the very element she fears. Adam is certain that Markos, Xia's boss and sometimes lover, is putting her in unnecessary danger. But Xia has tasted the inhuman cruelty that is Aqua and will do anything to stop her, even relive a terrifying, perilous spell.

Now that Adam has been assigned to protect her witchy spirit wanderings, Xia has to trust him. It isn't his power or ability she's uneasy about, but the fact he'll have to take all the pain meant for her.

Then the Chamber ruthlessly deploys Xia and Adam in a dangerous ritual. Adam can protect her body and defend her mind…but nothing can safeguard her from the backlash of the world-changing knowledge she discovers.

Product Warnings: This adventure is blatantly Scottish and dives into save-the-world sex with two of the hunkiest magical men you'll ever meet.

Just My Type Just My Type by Erin Nicholas
Genre: Contemporary
Length: 272 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-210-3, Series: The Bradfords
Price: $15.00 Limited time sale-priced for $10.50

Secretly wanting her–no problem. Her not-so-secretly wanting him–big trouble.

The Bradfords, Book 3

There's only one problem with the woman Jason "Mac" Gordon wants: his best friend's little sister is off limits. Way off limits, and too young and innocent for the likes of him. From past experience, he's learned to hide his not-so-nice preferences from the nice girls he seems to attract. That definitely includes the woman he's always thought of as a sister. At least until recently.

Sara Bradford always gets what she wants–which is partly Mac's fault. After all, he helped spoil her. So she has no intention of taking his no for an answer on anything–least of all his refusal to sleep with her. He thinks she's too innocent? Fine. She'll simply get un-innocent and show Mac that she wants him–the good, the bad and the nipple clamps.

When Mac's plan to drive her away works too well, he's forced to follow her to a tropical paradise, determined to make sure she doesn't find her wild side with anyone but him. Once she gets a real taste of what he likes, he's sure everything will go back to normal.

That's until he discovers a slight kink, er, flaw in his logic…

Product Warnings: Contains hot sex at the beach, kinky online shopping–and yes, cotton-candy-flavored body powder does exist.

She vows to protect her heart…until love burns away her resistance.

Régine Laflamme rules as the Queen of Fire, the Paris demimonde's most notorious and accomplished courtesan. Wealthy men shower her with riches and vie to become her next conquest. Respectable women shun her. Other courtesans envy her.

No one knows she was once an innocent young governess, ruined and turned out by a cruel lord. And now, years later, she spies her seducer's son–a man who never answered her frantic pleas for help.

Darius, Earl of Clarridge, has never stopped searching for the woman who haunts him. He doesn't expect her to believe that her letters never reached him. No, he will regain her trust in a way she understands–by promising to give her more pleasure than she's ever known.

In spite of her misgivings, Régine is intrigued and takes Darius up on his boast. To her surprise, he conquers not only her body, but captures her very heart.

Yet beyond the haven of her boudoir, two men scheme to possess her for their own. When one of them kidnaps and enslaves her, she clings desperately to a new hope–that this time Darius will find her before it's too late.

What begins as a quest for submission becomes an unrelenting need for love.

Harmless, Book 3

May Aiona's crush on sexy Evan Chambers is a bad habit that should be easy to break. It's not like he's ever noticed her. Looking for a safe place to release the reins of control and explore her curiosity about BDSM, May takes a friend up on an invitation to visit an exclusive bondage club–all she has to agree to is a public submission.

Evan can't help but notice the exotically beautiful May. But despite his success, the dirty secrets of his past whisper that he'll never be good enough for her. When Evan sees her standing in his club ready to submit to his best friend, he gives in to the thing he wants most–May as his sub. After their session, he knows one night will never be enough. But loving May isn't easy for a man always ready to take charge. She might like to submit in the bedroom, but she doesn't like anyone telling her what to do outside of it.

When May insists she's not in any danger from the person seemingly obsessed with her, she ends up in the sights of a deranged stalker–with Evan possibly too far away to help.

Product Warnings: This book contains sexy Hawaiian settings, crazy relatives, and a submission scene that leaves the heroine breathless and the hero frustrated. There are toys, bondage, and love scenes so hot, you'll need ice water and a towel. Remember, it's a Harmless story, so you know there's nothing harmless about it.

Price: $14.00 Limited time sale-priced for $9.80

He will have his revenge–one wicked seduction at a time.

Pendragon Gargoyles, Book 3

Emma is used to getting dragged into her twin sister's magical messes, but this time her predicament is more than a minor annoyance. She's chained to a cat shifter that her sister encased in a curse of stone. Worse, the unfortunate gargoyle's waking up. And her sister's not there to take the heat.

After a century suspended in stone, Cian would do anything to get his hands on the sorceress who put him there. Strangely, his dreams of revenge turn into an animal hunger to put his hands all over her–in every delightfully wicked way imaginable.

Never as talented as her sister, Emma doesn't trust her own magic. But for now she must let Cian believe she's the culprit in order to strike a bargain: to permanently lift the curse in exchange for his tracking skills to find her missing sister. The longer she is near him, though, the closer she comes to surrendering much more than her body to the brutal warrior.

As their attraction catches fire, Emma dreads what could happen when he learns the truth. If he will sacrifice her to break the spell…or fight for a love that goes beyond animal instinct.

Product Warnings: This book contains adult language, violence, bone-melting explicit sex and a stubborn alpha male who likes his revenge served hot, wild and strong enough to bring him to his knees.

Three armies are converging on the isolated town of Ballot's Keep, and a harsh, icy winter is just around the corner. Xeras and his infant dragon are heading out of town, but not to escape. It was his meddling that caused all this trouble for his lover, Carly, and for the town. And it's his job to set it right. Or, as his companion ghost likes to remind him, get killed trying.

Carly, the duke of Ballot's Keep, would like nothing better than to protect his troubled, magic-tainted lover. But what dragon magic has wrought, dragon magic must repair–and Xeras insists on facing the consequences of his actions. Alone.

The fate of thousands of innocent people rides on Xeras's talent for causing trouble–only this time, in turning their enemies against each other. But his need for secrecy could be too much of a betrayal for Carly to forgive…
