In high school, Edie Brand had been afraid to even look at Wade Armstrong. He was too hot, to smooth, and his reputation of being able to get any girl to say yes on the first date scared the daylights out of her. Now, though, a bad boy is what she needs. She’s back in town, driven out of L.A. and her lucrative modeling career by a crazed stalker who nearly killed her once. And who seems to have followed her home.
The attraction between these two burns them both, while a dangerous admirer watches, and grows angrier.
When former Secret Service agent Alex Stone is asked to impersonate a foreign dignitary who wears a full beard and is rarely seen without his sunglasses, it’s not a problem. But getting someone to impersonate the man’s new bride, a beauty the world adores, is a little bit harder. Melusine Brand looks astoundingly like the pampered princess. She’s also a rough and tumble Oklahoma Tom boy with colorful language. Besides, she’ll never agree.
Only, she does. Alex has to tutor her to survive the glitzy world he’s used to. But when things take a turn and they’re on the run in the wilderness with killers on their heels, it’s Mel’s turn to school him. Depending on each other to stay alive, these two opposites find a love that’s stronger than either of them could have imagined...and hope they can live long enough to claim it.
Dr. Thomas Duffy had put the odd happenings of his childhood off to a vivid imagination. The odd buzzing sensation in his head that would wake him from a sound sleep, and the night he sneaked out to rescue an imaginary girl, lost in the woods behind his family’s farm.
But when the history he’d convinced himself was just a dream repeats itself, and his new midnight trek into the woods leads him to a grown up version of the same girl, he has no choice but to admit it was for real.
The beautiful Janella is stranded, stalked by mysterious strangers and completely alone. What’s a simple country doctor to do?

*Formerly titled Dr. Duffy’s Close Encounter
Born before man recorded time, I lived for thousands of years believing myself to be something I’m not.
Someone I’m not.
Lied to and betrayed by gods, Daimons and Dark-Hunters, I’ve struggled to find my way in a world where I’ve been cursed since the moment I was prematurely ripped from my mother and planted into the womb of an innocent woman who thought me her son.
Trained as a slayer and predator, I learned to fit in and stay low. To become a tool for evil. Until I was sent to kill the one woman I couldn’t. My hesitation cost her her life.
Or so I thought. In an act of betrayal that makes all the others pale in comparison, I’ve learned that this world is an illusion and that my Phoebe still lives.
Now I will have to travel into the very pits of Hades to try and save her, even as everyone around me attempts to steal what little soul I have left. There’s only one person at my back and I’m not sure I can trust her either, for she was born of an enemy race. Yet sometimes the road to redemption is one that singes us to our very core. And if I fail to find the answers I need to save Phoebe, more than just my wife will die.
We will lose the world. Both human and Daimon.
