Homeless, jobless and man-less, Helen Gettsman doesn’t have a choice but to move into her inheritance in Nowhere, Oklahoma and make herself at home in the dusty, old mansion that is a drafty shadow of what it had once been. From the very beginning it becomes clear a house is not the only thing Aunt Susan left her. It would seem she now has the title of Caretaker and a new man in her life that died 100 years ago. Henry Gregory might welcome her presence, but not all the undead residents are happy about her staying.
This is a short story.

A modern-day Scottish paranormal romance by NYT Bestselling Author Michelle M. Pillow.
From the Highlands of Scotland to the valleys of Wisconsin...
Malina MacGregor is more than just a delicate flower in need of manly protection, but you wouldn’t know it by the slew of male family members who show up anytime she tries to go on a date. She's a powerful warlock in her own right, if only they would let her prove herself.
Fine, sure, she’s made some poor choices in men in the past—like the demon she mistakenly hooked up with in Las Vegas years ago. But that was then, and this is now, and she more than made up for that mistake.
Darragh “Dar” Lahey may be a luck demon, but his luck ran out the night he met the magic-wielding temptress—Malina. Now he’s back, and he has an ax to grind. Malina needs to pay for what she did to him, and the supernatural attacks he’s firing at her magical family is just the beginning. There is only one hitch in his plans for revenge—even after all this time the stubborn woman can still make his heart ache with love, and his body burn with need.
Warning: Contains yummy, hot, mischievous MacGregors who are almost certainly up to no good on their quest to find true love.

Alternate Reality Romance (parallel universe) from NYT & USAT Bestselling Author
Beautiful, highly intelligent Linnea Nel wants what most women want—a career, love, and respect. But coming from a plane where order and anti-chaos reigns, the untrackable, untraceable and highly rebellious Linnea is considered a threat—to her family, society and her world. When her numerous arrests for reading library books become a public embarrassment to her politically minded sister, Linnea is forced on a dignitary mission to an alternate reality.
There are only two classifications of people on plane 187: Doctors and Not Doctors (Sans). Dr. Sam Swift is one of the highest ranking officials on the medical plane, answering only to the Medical Supreme. When the Medical Supreme becomes ill, it’s up to him to find a cure. Nowhere in this equation is there room—or time—to fall in love. And then he meets the exquisitely frustrating Sans Linnea Nel.
In the midst of the worst outbreak 187’s society has faced in decades, two people who never should have met fall in love. How can Linnea stay where she may be in danger? But how can Sam let the love of his life go?
