Sometimes Survival Isn’t Enough . . .

Years of living on the street and fending for herself have made Makay Greyson tough and resourceful, if a bit disillusioned. She’s come a long way from sleeping in parks and scavenging for food. Her entire focus is on providing a better life for her young brother, one without fear of loss and neglect.

That certainly doesn’t leave time for Harrison Matthews, who from their first meeting sends fire through her veins and upsets all her carefully laid plans.

Makay has done things she isn’t proud of to survive, and those choices now threaten the small amount of security she’s created—and any chance of a future with Harrison. They’ve been raised in two very different worlds, and the secrets they both hide can only lead to disaster. 

There is only one chance to make it right, and one misstep could be fatal.

Your Eyes Don’t Lie is a story about facing fears, sacrificing for those you love, and about a girl who thinks she isn’t worth loving and a guy who knows she is.

Bugs are for the birds! 

Lisbon is hungry and it’s hard to wait for dinner. When her animal friends try to help her find something tasty to eat, the real the problems begin! Join Lisbon on her funny misadventures.

Each beautiful illustration is designed to inspire the imaginations of children. An activity page at the end of the book allows for more fun as they search for special items in the illustrations.

This version of I Don't Want to Eat Bugs has been designed specifically for ebook with a fixed layout and larger text for easy reading. While this is a great read-aloud book for parents, teachers, and other adults to share with children, we have chosen fonts that are similar to the way children form letters for easy recognition as they begin to read on their own. The print book is also available in 8.5” x 11” format.

Author’s Note: 

I Don't Want to Eat Bugs was written for my daughter, who was two when I wrote this story and didn’t like salad, but now she’s four and a half and loves it—if I give her plenty of salad dressing! (But don’t worry—this isn’t a book about eating salad.) Of course birds, cats, and dogs have a very different idea of what's good to eat, but through this fun adventure, Lisbon learns there is also food meant just for her—and it's good, especially compared with all the offerings from her animal friends.

My daughter and I privately call this book the "Ice Cream Story" (she LOVES ice cream so there had to be ice cream involved), and now whenever something funny happens, she says, "We should write a new ice cream story about that."

And we have! I Don't Want to Eat Bugs is the first book in a planned series called Lisbon’s Misadventures. I’ve written the next three books in the series, and Tim Petersen is hard at work creating the illustrations. Tim is obviously a fabulous artist, and I’m excited to be working with him. You can sign up on my website to learn when the next book comes out (http://teylarachelbranton.com/). Thank you and enjoy!

 Caring for the animals at Safe Haven Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary has filled the holes in Zoey Morgan’s life and soothed the memories that haunt her. It helps that she works with Stephen Carey, whose uncle owns the sanctuary, and Declan Walker, who is as wild and untouchable as the animals they help. When a storm hits, flattening buildings and flooding roads, the sanctuary goes into lockdown. Zoey learns that her younger sister is lost in the storm, and she will risk anything to find her. So will the man who loves her—if she’d let him. Can he slip past the walls Zoey has built to hide her secrets?

Some Secrets Aren't Meant to be Shared

All Ruth wanted was to open a little cafe and do what she does best, but the price tag is years out of reach. Then a not-so-chance meeting with a gorgeous photographer and help from her hodgepodge family might just put the goal in reach. Except now both her future and her heart are at risk—will the cost be too high?

 A blind-date-gone-wrong is not the way Bianca would have chosen to celebrate the news that she might be losing her business, but saying no to the sister who took care of her after their mother’s death proves impossible. So for one date, one torturous evening, she’ll endure the company of an infuriating, heartless man she has no intention of ever seeing again. She doesn’t expect her heart to have other plans. Sometimes the unexpected is not only what you need, it’s exactly what you’ve been waiting for all along.
You first met Zoey, Ruth, and Bianca as runaway teens in House Without Lies. Now they are all grown up and finding love in this intertwined three-story romance.


Kimmer Reed never intends to see her so-called family again. But when her brother shows up on her doorstep with gunmen on his heels, she does what comes naturally--she survives. Turns out he's in trouble (again) of his own making (again), and his survival strategy is to turn the bad guys on to Kimmer (of course).

But Kimmer is no longer a scared teen.  She's a highly trained covert agent with things worth fighting for--a life she loves, a house that's truly a home, and a strong partner who loves her.  And, it turns out, her so-called family now includes two innocent little girls--both currently in the hands of the same bad guys who have just turned Kimmer's life upside down.

Family.  Can't live with 'em, happy to live without 'em.  But no one makes Kimmer's choices for her--or for her two terrified nieces.  Look out, bad guys!
 

"Doranna Durgin's BEYOND THE RULES (4) is action-packed from start to finish. Kimmer is so strong that readers won't doubt for even a minute that she'll come out on top in the end. And Rio is a hero any woman could love."
--Romantic Times, Four Stars

"BEYOND THE RULES is a fascinating addition to the Bombshell line. Part action-adventure, part family drama, this story explores how far someone will go to do what's right..."
--Jennifer Wardrip, Romance Junkies

"BEYOND THE RULES is one of those reads that leaves you saying WOW! Kimmer Reed is a truly amazing heroine...the story flows wonderfully and keeps you on the edge of your seat."
--Wendy Keel, Romance Reader's Connection

"...Filled with unrelenting danger, heart-stopping action plus a wonderful touch of romance...With Kimmer's sharp-edged nature and brazen wit, Ms. Durgin has created a dynamic heroine. The storyline of this book merges the ever-present action and suspense with a heartfelt romance,"
--Amelia Richard, CataRomance

" Filled with action and suspense...an exciting read."
--Jennifer Bishop, Romance Reviews Today

Trust Me

But now, her would-be rapist is getting out of prison. Sacramento detective David Willis, who investigated her case, believes Burke is a clear and present danger--and now he’s is free to terrorize Skye again. Unless David can stop him. Unless Skye can fight back. Because Oliver Burke has every intention of finishing what he started…

Stop Me


Romain Fornier lost his reason for living when his daughter was kidnapped and murdered. He used a cop’s gun to mete out his own justice and spent the next few years in prison. After being freed, he learns that he might have killed the wrong man. Jasmine Stratford, a psychological profiler, is convinced the same killer kidnapped her sister sixteen years ago. She approaches Romain because she knows he can help her. But searching for the man who irrevocably changed both their lives means they have to rise to a killer’s challenge…

Watch Me

Teenagers Sheridan Kohl and Jason Wyatt were parked at the lake in Whiterock, Tennessee, when a stranger wearing a ski mask shot them both. Sheridan lived but Jason died—and the stranger was never caught. When Sheridan’s attacked a second time, it’s only because of Jason’s stepbrother, Cain Granger, that she survives. Cain knows that whoever killed his brother probably isn’t a stranger at all. But figuring out that person’s identity is easier said than done—especially since the killer seems to be taunting them both…
