What do you do when you are forgotten by the man you’ve loved for twenty years? What do you do if you are the one who is remembered?

Frankie Sicari is roused from sleep late one night by a key rattling in the front door lock. It’s her ex-husband, Charley Blackwell: a man she hasn’t seen for nearly a quarter of a century. What’s baffling is that Charley seems to think they are still married, and has no recollection of his current wife, Hannah.

When medical tests reveal shocking findings, Frankie finds herself reluctantly caring for the man who left her twenty years earlier, while Hannah is relegated to the sidelines. How can Frankie forgive the man who abandoned her when she needed him most? And how can Hannah cope with the impending death of the man she’s loved for the past twenty years – especially now she is faced with the shattering truth that he has never stopped loving his first wife, Frankie?

Beneath a hunter's moon blood turns from crimson to black . . .


Leigh Tyler was once a kindergartenteacher with big dreams.  Then her worst mistake came back to haunt her, brutally taking away everything she loved. Now she is a hunter, a Jager-Sucher, and her specialty is werewolves.   She is determined to make the world safe for other starry-eyed dreamers.  But, for her, love is no longer an option.


She is called to small-town Wisconsin, where a bigger, badder, better beast is doing her work for her.  Life is getting dangerous, and it doesn't help that she's been assigned a trainee.  People are going to get killed and she can only hope she isn't one of them.  Leigh isn't done killing things yet.


Damien Fitzgerald, a drifter with a questionable past, intrigues her. Every moment with him bringsback feelings she thought she'd buried, along with dangerous urges. When she gave up love, she also gave up sex.  But Damien makes her think that maybe, just maybe, that was a mistake.  Still, people who hang around her too long usually wind up dead, and she can't live with more souls on her conscience.


Then Leigh comes face to face with her past, and the only way to save herself, Damien, the town, the world is to triumph over an evil no one else has ever vanquished before.

From bestselling author Lori Handeland, a collection of contemporary romances. Humor with heart! 

How can a friendly little bet cause so much trouble? 

After the death of her husband, Evie Vaughn realizes her dream of becoming a high school teacher. She and her three sons move to Oak Grove, Iowa and become part of the community. Evie would like nothing better than to be able to send her boys to college, but to do so she needs to land the coveted position of high school baseball coach. She's qualified. She's almost got the job in her grasp. Then Joe Scalotta comes to town.

The "Iceman," as Joe was known on the football field, has just been hired as the football coach for the local community college. He's also received full custody of his teenage daughter after her mother's recent death. Oak Grove is supposed to be a new start for them both. 

When Joe is offered Evie's job merely on the basis of his notoriety sparks fly, and Evie proposes a test. Whoever's team wins the Big League Baseball championship over the summer wins the job. Though Joe doesn't want her job, he does want to keep an eye on the lovely Mrs. Vaughn. Especially since his daughter, Toni, has been assigned to Evie's team as her newest pitcher.

When Joe discovers himself hornswoggled into coaching Evie's twin terror sons in T-ball and his daughter falls in love with her catcher, Evie's oldest son, the two of them wind up spending more time together than apart. And not just because of the children.

When summer ends, who will be the winner? But what is it they're really competing for? A job or the new life they've always wanted?
