The journey is not over in the Project Enterprise Series. Two complete stories that feature guest appearances that you don't want to miss are currently available. Don't miss collecting the complete set in this award-winning series!

First up is “Men in Jeans.” 

Richard Daniels thinks life can't get any stranger then working at Area 51 until he gets assigned to find out where Houston area SF writer, Jilly Smith, gets the ideas for her books. Should be an easy assignment—if it weren't for the dead guy in Jilly’s back yard and the non-business related ideas she's giving him. 

And then dive into “Steam Time” to find out what happened to the mysterious (and sometimes bad guy) Dr. Smith. 

Tobias Smith hadn’t planned to ride along with Dr. Everly and his Medicine Show, but they were heading in the same direction - Marfa. During the journey, Tobias quickly uncovers another surprising revelation - that Everly’s 'son' is not who 'he', or should he say 'she', appears to be! Tobias soon discovers he might not be as bad as he thought - in a good way - when he and Ani find themselves bumped into an alternate reality complete with an automaton gang and airships. 

Could Tobias be the hero, save the day and get the girl? Stranger things have happened in the award-winning Project Enterprise universe! Ride along as two mysteries are solved and hearts are changed!

"There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune…" William Shakespeare

His whole career, Remy Mistral has fought for reform in a state where corruption is an art form. Now is his chance to quit talking about reform and make his move to change things, but two things stand in his way.

One is a woman, the other a killer.

Dorothy Morgana Merlinn would like some answers but her parents are dead—her father by an assassin’s bullet—so she’ll have to settle for justice. She’ll do what it takes to get it, including making a deal with Remy Mistral, the man who humiliated her ten years ago.

But when she stirs up the Louisiana mud, she gets more than she bargained for, including a romance with the man she planned to put in the crosshairs to flush out a killer.

Greed, corruption and betrayal clutter the board in a complicated chess game with life, death and love on the line…

Praise for A Dangerous Dance:

“Sinister and twisted individuals make this suspense thriller quite the dark and intense read. Jones cranks up the action and danger, as well as psychological suspense. Nail biting fun!” Romantic Times Magazine


“I really enjoyed A Dangerous Dance...I found myself drawn into these complicated figures, who all seem to have an ulterior motive...I found the characters to be similar to a chess game, where you draw your opponent into a checkmate. This is a very interesting book that will keep you intrigued to the very end.” Romance Reviews Today


“A DANGEROUS DANCE is as dark and sinister as a French Quarter alley. Dorothy and Remy are a great team, intellectually and romantically. They realize both of their lives are in jeopardy as they get closer to the killer. This psycho-thriller is full of greed, corruption, danger, and surprising twists and turns. Each of the supporting characters are hiding hateful secrets. Be prepared -- no one is who you think they are!” America Online Romance Fiction Forum

Book 4
Two novels and a short story from The Big Uneasy series.

The Big Easy ain't always easy for the law-abiding Baker family.

Relatively Risky 

A quirky artist must unravel her parent's secret past before the mob erases her future. But will the protection of a handsome homicide detective, Alex Baker, be her only hope of surviving the Big Easy?

The oldest of thirteen, Alex Baker does two things: he solves murders and avoids children. Until the day Nell Whitby foils a carjacking, knocks Alex off his feet and turns his life upside down. 

When the shots start flying and every rock he turns over reveals another wise guy, Alex decides he needs to stick close to the quirky yet captivating children’s book author while he discovers who is behind a series of mob hits. But can he resist the urge to kiss the kid magnet now in the crosshairs?

A relative newcomer to New Orleans—with no family but her college friend—Nell spends her days in seeming obscurity, sketching tourists in the French Quarter and serving canapés for her friend’s catering business. When a chance encounter makes Nell the target of a mob hit, the only silver lining is meeting the cute cop who is determined to protect her.

But when she finds herself at the head of a second line made up of goons and gangsters, and secrets start bubbling up out of her own past, Nell must figure out what she's made of so she can live long enough to kiss the cop again…


In “Family Treed,” a short story, will Nell survive dinner with the “killing cousins?” 

Nell’s not sure why the mob wants to have dinner with her. She is sure she wants a cop at her side. 

Alex wouldn’t let Nell go in without him, despite much unease from his many siblings. 

But will they get out alive?

And in Dead Spaces “be careful what you dig for.” 

A forensic surgeon in the New Orleans Coroner’s Center—and part of her dad’s Baker’s Dozen—Hannah Baker thought she knew where to dig, how and what to slice, and when to walk away. 

But when her big brother gets her involved in the exhumation of a couple of old coffins, she realizes the past can’t be ignored. Not when its been simmering up a big pile of trouble for longer than Hannah’s born days. 

Only New Orleans could produce a “Baked” gumbo of the mob, shadowy figures from the past, annoying figures from the present, murders, attempted murders, and a really cute detective who is technically off limits on account of he’s her big brother’s partner.

Good thing NOPD Detective Logan Ferris doesn’t know the meaning of “off limits,” because once more the Big Easy is getting mighty uneasy.

Pauline Baird Jones has won awards for her tightly plotted, funny, and fast-paced novels of romantic suspense. Get two complete novels and a bonus short story for one great price!
