Before the Dawn Before the Dawn by Denise A. Agnew
Genre: Historical, Romantic Suspense
Length: 288 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-596-8
Price: $16.00 Limited time sale-priced for $11.20

A fallen woman must decide to stay down, or rise and fight…

Elijah McKinnon has been found innocent of a heinous murder, but it doesn't erase the hellish years in prison he endured. He boards the train to Pittsburgh a changed man, certain he will never feel free until he's wreaked revenge on the brother who ruined his life.

The passenger who catches his eye is intriguing, but he's seen her kind before. The kind who puts on airs–and looks down on Irishmen. Still, he can't seem to stop himself from stepping between her and a pack of ruthless cads.

Mary Jane Lawson is grateful for the handsome stranger's help, but her journey has a higher purpose: to rise above her shattered reputation and declare her independence, come flood or famine. Propriety says she should refuse Elijah's suggestion they pose as husband and wife–for her own protection, of course. Her practical side says it won't hurt to pretend, just this once.

Come nightfall, though, their little charade must be carried all the way to shared sleeping quarters, where their vulnerabilities become painfully clear. And when danger past and present threatens, trusting each other becomes a matter of life and death.

Product Warnings: A hot Irish accent mixed with high adventure may cause combustion. Beware of falling for this hunk. The heroine says he's hers.

Genre: Contemporary
Length: 256 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-600-2
Price: $15.00 Limited time sale-priced for $10.50

He wants to hate her, but a little lust wouldn't hurt…

The only emotion Leah Grainger can muster when thinking of her dead husband is relief. Until she learns his gambling debt threatens her beloved farm and the child she wanted to protect from the rootless existence she grew up with.

The last straw? Her husband's brother demands a meeting. When she charges into his office to tell him she won't let another Grainger screw up her life, the startlingly handsome, former oil rig wildcatter goes for the jugular. He's claimed legal guardianship of her daughter, bought her mortgage…and he's moving in.

The final email Mac received from his suicidal brother blamed Leah for everything. If it's the last thing he does, he plans to protect his niece. Even if it means using his millions to gain the upper hand. And hardening his heart against the beautiful Leah's protests of innocence.

Yet something seems off. Leah is nothing like the uncaring woman his brother described. She's warm, loving…and when a new threat to her child surfaces and she reaches out to him in need, his body won't let him say no. Even when her last secret forces him to make a decision that exposes his most closely guarded possession. His heart.

Product Warnings: Contains tug-your-heart love, raise-the-roof lust, a marriage of convenience and hot sex that will give a whole new meaning to the word "wildcatter".

Genre: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense
Length: 296 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-604-0
Price: $16.00 Limited time sale-priced for $11.20

She's a dreamer. He's a realist. Somewhere in the middle is love–and danger.

After her husband's death, Catherine Brooks is ready to go back to work–almost. She volunteers at a shelter for homeless teens, Lost Angel, thinking it will ease her return to the classroom. There's nothing easy about irascible shelter manager Luke Starns, though. His cool detachment rubs her the wrong way, especially when he warns her not to get too attached. Still, the soft heart she senses beneath his stern exterior keeps her coming back–and his face pervades her thoughts.

It's not that Luke finds Catherine's easy charm and free spirit unappealing–quite the opposite. Life on the streets is hard, and discipline is the only ladder that'll get and keep these kids out of trouble. He knows what it's like to care too much, only to have the rug yanked away. He tells himself he's simply trying to save her the same heartache.

Yet Catherine has him rethinking his approach to life. Just as he lets his guard down, though, a murderer begins stalking the mean streets near the shelter, putting everything they care about at risk. Including their lives.

Product Warnings: A gritty setting, a serial killer in a red satin dress, and a couple who think sizzling sex is the only kind worth having.

As his birthday nears, Drakor is losing time to find his life mate.

Bad Blood Bad Blood by Lucienne Diver
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Length: 224 Pages, ISBN: 978-1-60928-594-4, Series: Latter-Day Olympians
Price: $14.00 Limited time sale-priced for $9.80

The gods play…and mortals pay.

Latter-Day Olympians, Book 1

Tori Karacis's family line may trace back to a drunken liaison between the god Pan and one of the immortal gorgons. Or…maybe it's just coincidence that her glance can, literally, stop men in their tracks. While her fear of heights kept her out of the family aerobatic troupe, her extreme nosiness fits right in with her uncle's P.I. business.

 
Except he's disappeared on an Odyssean journey to find himself. Muddling through on her own, she's reduced to hunting (not stalking, because that would just be weird) brass-bra'd Hollywood agent Circe Holland to deliver a message…only to witness her murder by what looks like the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Suddenly, all of her family's tall tales seem believable, especially when Apollo–the Apollo, who's now hiding out among humans as an adult film star–appears in her office, looking to hire her. She knows the drill: canoodling with gods never works out well for humans, but she's irresistibly drawn to him. Maybe it's her genes. Maybe not.

Given her conflicted feelings for one hot and hardened cop, it's a toss-up which will kill her quickest. The danger at her door…or her love life.

Product Warnings: Contains pot-boiling passion between a heroine who may–or may not–be a descendant of Medusa, and a hot god and a hunky cop with the…equipment…to handle her, even on her worst bad-hair day. Beware of killer kisses, trickster gods and bearded grandmothers Who Know Everything.

She'd give anything to lose control.

A Westlake Enterprises story

Storm Buchanan's talent for mind control comes in handy as an investigator for a private agency, but it's hell on her love life. Men bow to her every whim, so there's no challenge. Where's the fun in that?

Maybe that's why she can't trust herself around Rafe Savage. The smug, sexy, annoying investigator for a rival firm is the one man who seems impervious to her power. Worse, when he kisses her, she all-too-willingly slips under his control.

Rafe's gift for seeing into the future doesn't usually blindside him…until it comes to Storm. The beautiful seductress assaults his control on all fronts, and the spontaneous flashes of her life in danger have his every instinct on alert.

When attempts on both their lives escalate, Storm and Rafe must stick together to find a madman bent on vengeance. While it's no surprise that their enforced proximity has their bodies going up in flames, neither expects lust to melt into love. Or that they'll need every ounce of their combined skills to fight for a future that could die before it's born.

Product Warnings: Beware a heroine with mind control, a sexy hero with attitude, annoying siblings, smug psychics, sexualized danger, and a psychotic villain who can't be caught.

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

Some things are sweeter than revenge.

"I need a boyfriend."

Hearing those words from the mouth of his very straight ex-friend is enough to make columnist and editor Nate Gray choke on his Corona. It's been thirteen years since Kellan Brooks's father crushed Nate's family on his climb to wealth and power. Even longer since he entrusted Kellan with the confession that he might be gay–only to have his best friend out and humiliate him to their entire high school. The last thing Nate expects is Kellan begging for his help.

Breaking off his engagement to a senator's daughter was the last straw for Kellan's CEO father. Frustrated at being cut off, his father's stinging words–that he wishes Kellan had never been born–still ringing in his ears, Kellan turns to Nate. In a move worthy of a corporate raider, Kellan plans the ultimate revenge. Come out as the boyfriend of the man his homophobic father betrayed.

Convincing Nate to play along isn't easy. It's even harder to figure out why the lie feels so close to the truth.

Product Warnings: Contains old friends, old enemies, a dramatic cat rescue, soft drink references and a lot of teasing before the steamy sex. Readers are cautioned against drinking any beverage while reading to avoid accidental snorting or spraying of said beverages.

After this much foreplay, something's bound to combust.

That Old Black Magic, Book 2

As head mistress of Beaumont coven house, Clarissa Miles has perfected two things: keeping her sister witches from accidently turning innocent bystanders into toads, and resisting the sexy overtures of her familiar, werewolf Logan Scott.

But her resolve is vanishing–fast. Seven years ago she sold her soul to save her father, and that contract is coming due. The allure of spending her last days indulging in some dirty, naked loving is too tempting to resist.

Logan has patiently ridden out the past seven years, content to do Clarissa's bidding and ignoring his consuming need to mark her as his. Now that the ban on witch/familiar fraternizing has been lifted, he's off the leash and ready to launch a full-on sensual assault on her defenses. They're destined mates, and he'll do whatever it takes to convince her.

It's delightfully easy to get her in bed. Get at her heart? Not so much. Especially when a deadly predator stakes its claim on her…and Logan faces a battle not only to win her heart, but save her soul.

Product Warnings: This book contains a villain with more personalities than Sybil, a witch in search of redemption and a dirty-talking werewolf hell-bent on claiming his mate in every wicked, sexy way possible. Spontaneous howling may occur.
