To save the woman he loves, he must push his gifts to the brink.

Halle Shifters, Book 2

Julian DuCharme, a rare Spirit Bear with legendary healing powers, is finally free from the threat of death, finally free to claim his mate–but she's not having it. While his Bear screams it's time to mate, the love of his life wants to date.

Holding his Bear in check while convincing her he's not out to control her won't be easy. She's stubborn and a closeted geek–in other words, perfect for him.

Cynthia "Cyn" Reyes, owner of Living Art Tattoos, thinks Julian is the hottest thing on two legs. That doesn't mean she's going to roll over for his masculine charm. She watched her mother flounder when her father passed away, and she's determined to never lose herself to someone else. Not even a man who would jump the moon for her, if she asked that of him.

When the women of Living Art are targeted by a killer, Julian doesn't think twice about pouring out his last drop of power to keep Cyn safe. But it's Cyn who'll give up everything–her independence, even her humanity–to keep a terrifying vision from coming true.

One of his death.

Product Warnings: This novel contains explicit sex, graphic language, a tattooed heroine and the Bear who loves her. Maybe he'll finally convince her to tattoo him with "Property of Cyn".

Red, Hot & Blue, Book 7

Deployed in the deadliest place on earth, Army Staff Sergeant John Blake relies on caffeine, adrenaline, years of training and sheer force of will to get through his days. He has no problem with his tank crew passing around a sexy romance novel, but John's a fighter, not a lover. He'll pass.

Winding up as the author's accidental pen pal wasn't in his plan, but there's something about her sweet, caring emails that has him looking forward to checking his inbox.

Week after week, Maureen Mullen, aka erotic romance writer Summer Winters, has dated one loser after another in a quest to find the last decent man on earth. Now it seems she's found him–halfway around the world. When it comes to falling for unavailable men, she's batting a thousand.

Gradually, the emails between the war-hardened warrior and the writer of passionate prose heat up to the point of keeping them up warm and wanting at night. Soon they're wondering if it's possible to build something solid out of cyberspace, or if it's just an emotional mirage that will dissolve in the heat of reality.

This book was previously published.

Product Warnings: Contains some steamy phone calls from the war zone and one hell of a sexy first meeting between two strangers who are already in love.

With her small savings bleeding away, she swallows her pride–and her terror–and turns to Vivien Manning, an infamous courtesan, to match her with a wealthy protector.

For years, Viscount Andrew Callis has lived a monastic existence at his country estate, hardening his body against the snobbish, lazy young man he once was, hardening his heart against grief over the deaths of his wife and infant son. When Vivien asks him to spend one month training a young woman in the ways of a mistress, his mind resists…but his body responds with an ache he thought long dead.

As Andrew begins his gentle tutelage, he finds himself falling under the spell of Lysandra's innocent charms.

An emotional connection that could carry them well past the training period–if only Andrew can open his heart to the possibility of love.

The road to believing can be one wild ride.

A Northern Shifters book.

Seamus O'Connor thought his friendship with Zachariah Smithson was just that–a relationship born on one horrific night seven years ago. He never thought he'd end up inheriting the old man's farm.

Tons of chores and hard work are nothing new for Seamus. The farm comes equipped with all he needs–and something he didn't expect. Unsettling, late-night visits from Zachariah's grandson Ri, a man who appears and disappears like a ghost.

Ri has had little contact with the outside world, with good reason. Horse shifters aren't any human's idea of normal. Plus, he's wary of being the next target of the werewolves who took his twin brother. Trust his matchmaking grandfather to give him a reason to come home–Seamus.

As Seamus gradually learns the truth of Ri's life, their relationship tentatively grows–and danger grows closer. For it was Ri who rescued Seamus on that terrible night long ago. Seamus is about to realize he's had his own encounters with werewolves. He just doesn't know it–yet.

Product Warnings: This story contains unexpected night visits, expected night visits, wild rides and growing love.

When you meet your match, be ready with a fallback plan.

The Happily Ever After Company, Book 3

Though proud of the number of successful matches her father has made over the years, Noelle Braddock vows never to be one of those desperate females. She can find her own husband, thank you very much. In fact, she's already chosen him. A banker who'll shower her with affection and security.

She can't imagine why her father doesn't approve of such a perfect match, but it's a battle of wills she plans to win. Even when her father plays dirty by inviting a sweet-talking, buckskin-clad sharpshooter to stay the week before her wedding.

Lieutenant Zackary Dane is ready to settle down with a sturdy, good-natured, cookin'-and-cleanin' female. One look at tempestuous, high-society Noelle, though, and his heart locks on target. She wants him too–she's just too stubborn to admit her father is right.

Even if he can't win her hand for himself, Zack feels honor-bound to show her that her fiancé is a lying bastard. Then Fate takes a notion to step in and wipe the slate clean–literally–with an accident that leaves Noelle with no memory. And Zack with one chance to fill her heart with what was meant to be…

Price: $3.99 Limited time sale-priced for $2.79

Suspicion and danger. Can two hearts survive?

When Montana game warden Hayden Conover comes across the body of a man lying next to a dead antelope, he can think of only two suspects with rap sheets long enough to lead to such a heinous crime. Al and Hoagy Metcalf.

Except they've broken out of jail and disappeared into the wilderness. Reluctantly he turns to Tomara Metcalf for help. He barely knows her, doesn't trust her, but he needs her to bring her murderous relatives to justice. Once that's done, he can put his confusing attraction to her behind him for good.

Though Tomara distanced herself from her hard-knock clan a long time ago, she's sure of one thing. Metcalfs don't murder. This certainty gives her the courage to help Hayden in the search for her wayward father and brother, if only so the fools can clear their names.

As the search wears on, Hayden and Tomara's attraction becomes as deep and elemental as the wild, desolate plains. And Tomara finds herself longing to convince the unforgiving lawman that desire, hot and sudden as a prairie fire, can be as precious and healing as a desert spring.

Genre: Retro Historical
Length: Novel, ISBN: 978-1-60928-977-5, Series: Legendary Warriors
Price: $3.99 Limited time sale-priced for $2.79

A dangerous passion.

Legendary Warriors, Book 2

At twenty-three, Anna Wiley is lucky. The children aboard an orphan train headed west don't care that their nurse is too tall, too homely to be loved. They need her, and she will not rest until each one is placed in a loving home, including the last twelve bedraggled, rejected urchins clinging to her skirts.

When their train is attacked by a band of warriors bent on rescuing a kidnapped Indian boy, she doesn't think twice about protecting the children–all the children, including the boy. Except keeping her charges safe means she must trust the formidable warrior who led the attack.

War Cloud plans to get the strong-willed white woman and her gaggle of children off his hands as soon as possible. Yet as he guides them toward civilization, he realizes there is beauty beneath Anna's ill-fitting clothes, a strong spirit behind her sparkling green eyes.

Even as passion grows, War Cloud prepares to put her from him, and not only because of the animosity that hangs between their cultures. A centuries-old curse hangs over his ancestral line. A spell that could take her from him forever–should he dare to fall in love.

This book has been previously published.

Product Warnings: Contains a passion that could lead to soul-stirring love, if the whispering ancestors have their way.
