Free sample

Justine is running from ghosts. She leaves behind her old life, seeking a fresh start in a place where she hopes the ghosts won’t follow her. But they haunt her even worse in spite of the idyllic lodge she escapes to. In the middle of trying to shake her grief once and for all, she encounters a local hunter who might just be her redemption..

Jake has his own ghosts he can't seem to shake, and finding love is the last thing on his mind. All he wants is to avoid getting stuck out in a blizzard. When he spies a beautiful—and apparently suicidal—woman at the lodge he retreats to, he's too much of a hero to resist helping her. He sees something of his own hurt in her eyes, and when the power goes out, sparks fly between them.

Beautiful things can happen in the darkest places. What will happen when the lights come back on?

"Out of the Cold" is an 8,000-word romantic short story with adult themes.

Even immortal dragons can have crazy exes.

Three thousand years ago, immortal blue dragon Belah and her old lover took their kinks just a step too far, and she's been trying to get over it ever since. The problem is that her ex is still out there wreaking havoc on her world, while Belah spent the last three millennia in hiding.

With her race's world changing, it's time for Belah to show her face again. Finding a new mate should be easy for a dragon as powerful as her, but "baggage" is an understatement when your ex is your race's mortal enemy, and he's just let you know he wants you back.

Determined to move on, Belah finds Lukas and Iszak North--not one, but two gorgeous, musically talented, and especially kinky brothers from one of the dragons' sister races. The pair are perfect for Belah. Their race of falcon shifters mate for life--one look at Belah, and both North brothers know she's their One. The problem is, they have baggage of their own, and Belah's old lover is at the center of it. The brothers can't help but love her in spite of her past, and when Belah answers their mating call and gives herself to them completely, they would do anything to keep her, even forgive her connection to their enemy.

When Belah's old lover calls in a promise, she and her new mates learn there is more at stake than love, and it might take more than fancy knots and an adeptly wielded whip to find true happiness.
