Jessi Brand always gets what she wants. And what she wants is part time ranch hand, part time deputy, and full time hunk, Lash Monroe. Unfortunately, her five big (really big) brothers have other ideas. And so does Lash, who had his fill of large families and overbearing “brothers” during his childhood in foster care. He’s a loner and a drifter and he intends to stay that way.
Can the youngest Brand on the ranch handle six uncooperative males and land the man of her dreams? Maybe, but when trouble finds Lash and he heads off to face it alone, everything else takes a back seat, because the Brand family sticks together, and like it or not, Lash has become a part of that family. And when the cavalry shows up, it’s Jessi leading the charge.
Alter Ego or Ghostly Warrior?
Wes Brand is the black sheep of the family. But lately, he’s become friends with an old Shaman named Turtle who has hidden reasons for wanting to put Wes in touch with his Comanche roots. He convinces Wes to impersonate legendary warrior, Wolf Shadow, to drive archaeologist Dr. Taylor McCoy away from her dig site. His failing health provides plenty of leverage. But when the beautiful doc finds herself falling for both Wes and his ghostly alter-ego, Wes wonders how he’ll get out of the mess he’s made without ruining the powerful feelings beginning to grow between them.

As a little girl, Sara Brand witnessed the murder of her family, an event that has left deep emotional scars. She’s beginning to heal, having found extended family in Texas and the brother she thought she’d lost. On break from her job teaching Kindergarten, Sarah has come to vacation at Sugar Keep, an old plantation in the Louisiana Bayou country.
But trouble hasn’t finished with her yet. It shows up in the form of darkly handsome Jake Nash, a man with a hands-off attitude and sizzling brown eyes, who turns out to be an ex-con suspected of murder. Before she can make up her mind about him, someone is killed right in front of Sarah’s eyes. She didn’t see the killer, but the killer has no way of knowing that.
Now she’s on the run and there’s only one person protecting her. Jake. Is he “her shied” as a Voodoo Priestess told her, or is he stalking her with the intent to silence her forever?

SOME LOVES LAST NOT JUST A LIFETIME BUT CENTURIES….
Vlad Dracul is older even than his legend, but in all his many lifetimes he's loved only one woman, Elisabeta, the wife he lost far too soon. Ever since her death he's wandered the earth in a fruitless search for her reincarnation. Until now.
Because now he's found her soul at last, hidden in the mortal woman known as Tempest “Stormy” Jones.
Stormy has always sensed the “other” deep inside her, striving for escape, for dominance, but in the presence of the charismatic Vlad she finds herself not only battling her attraction to a man she knows is dangerous and full of dark desires but losing control of her own body as Elisabeta's spirit fights to emerge.
Now Vlad himself is torn between an ages-old love and the power of his feelings for Stormy herself. Only he can decide which woman will live and which will die—forever.
