Be careful what you wish for. It just might kill you.
Carmen and Angelo D’Agostino want a new life—and that’s precisely what they get after a cross-country move from bustling Los Angeles to the remote coastal village of Chistine, Maine, allows them to start a new business together. Upon their arrival, however, the couple discovers they’ve been scammed. Stranded and desperate to turn their luck, the D’Agostinos take a gamble on the “haunted” and abandoned McGillicuddy Inn.

They have no way of knowing that the rebranded Silent Cove Bed & Breakfast includes an elderly housekeeper who shows up at the most opportune times, a mysterious, vanishing gardener, and countless spine-chilling encounters they could’ve never imagined. Even worse, something—or someone—who is out for Carmen’s blood.

Trying to make sense of these frightful events, the stress and unforeseen horrors of their new life take a toll on Angelo and Carmen’s relationship. They’ve awakened the spirits in their haunted mansion—and there’s no possibility of escape. Will their love survive the terrors of Silent Cove before its grand opening?

Step inside the surreal new world of the D’Agostinos in the first book of the Silent Cove trilogy, a paranormal romance saga, as they fight for their lives on the coast of Maine.

She opens the door and, in a split second, her past and her destiny collide.

Esther “Ez” Summers could never have prepared herself for what she’d find when that door swung open. Standing there, big, dark, and beautiful, is someone she’s never met, someone who’s beyond familiar. And someone who’s going to ask more of her than anyone has in over fifty-five million years.

She’s not ready. At least she thinks she’s not. But Austrello, a man she’d only met a second before, asks her to do the unthinkable and return to her home dimension of Endor. She fears she’ll be ended as soon as she steps through that portal, but her people need her. The evil that’s fallen upon them is something they can’t fight alone. They need a hero. They need a warrior.

They need their queen.

And she needs Alan, but she knows this journey will be too much for him—too dangerous and possibly too long. If she leaves, she believes they’ll never see each other again. She doesn’t want to go. Austrello doesn’t want to go. But Alan does, and she knows he can’t. Arrangements are made and concessions are brokered, concessions that are undone with one small mistake.

The third book in the Witch of Endor series, Torn Apart introduces us to the one person who can lure Ez back to Endor. Between the sci-fi romance, quantum mechanics, and theoretical physics is a real-world question every soldier in history has asked: Are there some things worth the journey when you walk away from love?

Continue the saga with Esther and her larger-than-life, sexier-than-hell companion and grab the third book in the four book series today!

When no one is what they seem …

 

Annabeth and Katie Reynolds-Walters want another baby, but this time Annabeth wants to carry. That rules out the Walters men as sperm donors, and Katie’s father won’t even consider it. But Katie has an ace up her sleeve. Once she’s done enough digging, she discovers a brother from her father’s indiscretion with a neighbor woman. He’d be the perfect candidate.

 

At first, everything is fine. Katie is nervous about asking him to donate, but he’s not the least bit shy about asking to move into their house. His work on a super-supplement would go a lot faster that way, he reasons, with a stable environment. It isn’t long before he asks Katie if she’d like to be a test subject. After all, who couldn’t use more energy?

 

Annabeth has problems of her own. Clayton bought a new accounting software program, complete with a trainer, Christina, a blond bombshell with designs on Annabeth. Before long, Annabeth’s going a little too far with their friendship, and she knows it.

 

But the supplement isn’t a supplement, and Annabeth’s assertions that she’s a happily married woman fall on deaf ears with Christina. Annabeth and Katie are up to their necks in things they never dreamed they’d be dealing with. There’s a crisis brewing, and a fiery one at that.

 

Legacy of Freedom takes us back to the Walters of Louisville, Kentucky, the hottest Italian-American family you’ve ever met. Grab a copy today and hang on—it’s a wild ride! 

A homeless young woman. A respected, mature Dominant. And too many years between them.

Dave Adams has been alone ever since his wife left him for her girlfriend years before. Of course, he's not alone: Managing Bliss, an elegant, members-only BDSM club, is his life, and with submissives galore, Master Dave has whatever he wants, whenever he wants it. He's seen his son and his son's best friend both find the loves of their lives, but Dave knows his time's up.

But that was before he opened the back door to take out the night's garbage and found a young homeless woman trapped between him and the dumpster. Compassionate to a fault, Dave invites here in and tries to reach out to her, only to discover that a hideousness has transpired and left her more than just damaged. As he, Clint, and Steffen, with the help of Trish and Sheila, manage to draw out Olivia's demons and help her begin to confront them, something unexpected happens - Dave finds himself responding to Olivia's softness and vulnerability, and her to his dominance and loving guidance.

And just when it seems their May/December romance might stand a chance, a plan gone wrong convinces Dave that the last place Olivia needs to be is in his arms. He finds a way to send her on to bigger and better things, but when her whereabouts become unknown, Dave discovers that maybe dates on a calendar don't mean that much at all. Problem is, unless he can find her, it won't matter.

Return to Bliss and the characters you've grown to love in this final intallment in the Me, You, and Us series, and find out what it takes to break into that scared, worn out heart in Dave Adams' chest.

There are moments in every life when we make a choice that defines who we really are. Peyton Stokes is about to step into that moment.

Peyton Stokes is pretty sure no woman will ever want him. When he strapped that prosthesis on his lower left leg, he took on the belief that he was off the market for a meaningful relationship forever. That self-imposed label of "cripple" has followed him and dogged him. On a whim, he decides to ask Molly Walters - mature, smart, and beautiful - to go out with him, only to be shocked when she asks him out first. One chance is all he needs to prove to her that he can get the job done, and he wants to take that chance.

Problem is, his best friend, José Flores, unknowingly decides that Molly looks like a pretty good prospect too.

Even though she's having fun with Peyton, Molly can't help but be drawn to the dark haired, dark eyed ex-cage fighter turned security specialist. The fact that he's almost two decades younger than her doesn't hurt her self-esteem either. While Peyton soothes everything in Molly's soul, José's brand of balls-to-the-wall, red-hot fun turns up the heat to scorching every time he touches her. She knows she eventually has to tell them about each other and make some kind decision, and Molly makes one.

She wants them both.

That revelation brings about a turn of events no one could've anticipated. When things fall apart, Molly tries to pick up the pieces, but that's hard when someone you love has disappeared. It'll take everyone who loves him to find him, with or without the help of the one man he loves the most. And that one man has to decide: Are his labels worth losing not one, but two people he loves? He's got to decide quickly. Otherwise, it may be too late - eternally. 

Revisit the world of the Walters family in this concluding novel of the Love Under Construction series. You'll find out who lives, who dies, and who expands their world - and their family. And in Renovating a Heart, Book 3, we were left with the question of Nikki Walters' health. That question lives large in Planning an Addition as Tony Walters is left to face the looming prospect that he may have to live out the rest of his life without the only woman who ever really loved him. He's not entirely sure he can do that, but all hope has been exhausted and time is running out. Someone in the family holds the key, but Tony will have to be willing to let her step in. And that will take a giant leap of the faith he's pretty sure he's exhausted.

Funny how everything changes when it's a matter of life or death.

BONUS: Each book in the Love Under Construction series features the recipe of a dish mentioned in the books. It's like dessert meets drama!

WARNING: This book contains graphic violence and explicit sexual acts, including ménage and a gay relationship. It is intended strictly for adult audiences and not for those under 18 years of age.

For Sheila, a lie is a deal-breaker. But what if it’s not a lie? What if it’s just not the whole truth?

Being a popular Dom at the nicest BDSM club in town would be the top of the mountain for lots of guys, but for Steffen Cothran, it’s meant heartache. He lost someone he thought he might be able to have a future with to his best friend when Trish Stinson and Clint Winstead patched things up. He knows he wants a relationship, but so far he’s had trouble finding that one person to make that happen.

But that was before she walked through the door.

That all changes when Trish and Clint walk into the club with Trish’s best friend, Sheila Brewster. He’s met her never really had much contact with her. But Clint has a plan: He’s looking for a Dom to protect her in case her abusive ex-boyfriend manages to get paroled. And Clint happens to think that Steffen is a great candidate for that position.

Steffen and Sheila’s relationship starts casually and quickly grows into a promising romance. But one question makes all the difference, and when Steffen doesn’t lie but doesn’t tell the whole truth, Sheila’s left wondering if she ever trust anyone again. And when Steffen’s little omission shows up on his doorstep in full-blown chaos, the relationship he’d had such high hopes for is shattered, possibly forever.

In the aftermath, Sheila sets a course for self-destruction that turns out to be more dangerous than anyone could’ve imagined. With no one to blame but himself, Steffen finds it hard to help a woman who won’t have anything to do with him.

Two broken hearts. One huge mistake. A few really bad choices. And a lifetime of pain if things can’t be righted. It may be impossible to mend the broken trust and their love can be lost forever.

The second in the Me, You, and Us series following Adventurous Me, Steffen’s story in Unforgettable You is funny, smart, sweet, sexy, and heartbreaking. it’s a tale of what happens when you forget that there’s not a lot of difference between a lie and a partial truth, and what love really means when two people belong together.

WARNING: This book contains explicit sexual situations in graphic detail. Not intended for readers under the age of 18. Reader discretion advised.

 Size, ability, and stamina. And don’t forget six feet and eight inches of leather-wrapped muscle. It takes a big man to tear down walls – in more ways than one.

You're a successful businessman. A molten-blooded Italian hunk. And the newest, hottest, most in-demand service Dom/top in a 500-mile radius, with dozens of women falling at your feet. So, which woman? How do you choose?

That's easy - you pick the one who can't stand you.

And that's exactly what Vic has done. He's tried desperately to get the wrong woman out of his heart, and it looks like he may have succeeded. And just when he thinks everything in his life is falling into place, Cupid plays a nasty joke on him and he falls for the one woman who doesn't want to be anywhere near him. Somehow it isn't already bad enough that he has a secret keeping him from having a loving, long-term relationship; to make matters worse, if he wants to have a chance with the ice princess, he has to keep her alive long enough to tear down the walls she's built around herself.

Laura is as prickly as they get, but there's a reason. Her clothes hide a secret that she's sure would make any man run, and that secret is about to get her killed. The trauma she endured during her service to her country left her unable to feel any emotion or trust anyone, and the idea of ever letting a man touch her is out the window. Alone and untrusting, Laura didn't expect to meet a man who would promise to keep her safe and would die to keep that promise. And when her past wants to kill her to keep her quiet, can she open up to him before it's too late?

The second full-length novel in the Love Under Construction series, Tearing Down Walls is a fun, erotic, romantic, and suspenseful romp that takes you back into the world of the Walters family of Louisville, Kentucky. It features many characters over the age of 40 and contains too many steamy, hedonistic sex scenes to be suitable for anyone under 18 years of age. Step into the Walters' world and have some fun!

BONUS: Each book in the Love Under Construction series features the recipe of a dish mentioned in the books. It's like dessert meets drama!
