Can she find the missing girl before it’s too late?


Detective Shannon Martin believes Autumn Rain’s gift is a hoax. But he is desperate to find the missing little girl. Can they put aside their differences and find her before it’s too late?


Autumn Rain didn’t always possess the ability to read emotions imprinted on objects. If you’ve enjoyed the Imprints series or are just beginning the adventure, you don’t want to miss this new prequel about her first case as a consultant to the Portland Police Bureau. See how Autumn came into her ability and how Detective Shannon Martin reacts when he realizes this crazy so-called psychic might just be telling the truth.


From the author:

I hope you enjoy this introduction to my Imprints series. Readers have asked me for this story, so here it is! Though this is a shorter story and as such cannot contain the intricacies of the rest of the series, it is a complete book with no cliffhangers. Enjoy!

The Change (Unbounded Book 1)

There are only two ways to kill Unbounded, and fire isn't one of them—as law school dropout Erin Radkey learns the hard way. By fluke of a recessive gene, she has become Unbounded, a nearly immortal being with paranormal abilities.

Erin's Change separates her from her loved ones and alters everything she believes to be true. A week earlier she was considering a marriage proposal; now she contemplates the best way to stay alive. Caught in a battle between two Unbounded groups, the Emporium and the Renegades, she is also hunted by a secret mortal society sworn to eradicate the Unbounded gene.

As Erin plunges into this dangerous new life, she must carve out her own place in the madness, protect her mortal family, and decide which group she should join. Her unique ability is vital to both groups and some will stop at nothing to use Erin as one more pawn in a battle that has spanned centuries. Erin's undeniable attraction to Ritter Langton, whose family was massacred by opposing Unbounded two hundred and forty years ago, complicates her choices. 

There are no second chances. Death, life, or love—Unbounded always play for keeps. 

Non-stop action, terrifying consequences, and powerful romance make the Unbounded series an exciting addition to the world of romantic urban fantasy. 

Note: With the exception of Ava’s Revenge, all the books are in chronological order. Set Ablaze is the only novella that does not follow the same characters and exists to explain where Ritter Langton was during his missing two months between The Change and The Cure. Happy reading and enjoy!

The Last Stand Collection by Brenda Novak, Volume 2

Three perfect stories of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak…

The Perfect Couple

One afternoon in May, Zoe Duncan’s thirteen-year-old daughter goes missing from her own backyard. Zoe’s willing to do anything to bring Sam home, even if it means divulging all her secrets to a private investigator.

Jonathan Stivers is good at what he does, the best. But never has the P.I. had fewer leads to work with–or been more attracted to a client. Jonathan’s sure of only one thing: Sam was taken by someone close to the family. He doesn’t know how close until he realizes that the “perfect” couple next door is anything but….

The Perfect Liar

Air Force Captain Luke Trussell is shocked when the police charge him with rape. He knows he made a mistake in judgment the night before, but he certainly didn’t force his attentions on the woman who’s been stalking him for months.

Problem is Kalyna Harter has the bruises, and the DNA evidence, to make her claim convincing.

Kalyna goes to victims’ rights advocate Ava Bixby, but Ava soon realizes she’s defending the wrong victim.

Problem is switching her support to Luke could be dangerous, especially when she falls for him. Because Kalyna won’t tolerate losing the man she wants to anyone. Least of all Ava.

The Perfect Murder

For more than a year, Sebastian Costas has been trying to unravel the truth behind the murder of his ex-wife and son. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he’s convinced that her second husband–a cop–committed both murders, then faked his own death. Now Sebastian has followed the slimmest of leads to Sacramento…and that’s where he finally gets the break he needs. Investigator Jane Burke calls him in connection with a separate crime–a crime that could lead him straight to the man he’s been looking for.
Three classic stories of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak…

Trust Me

Four years ago, Skye Kellerman was attacked in her own bed. She managed to fend off her knife-wielding assailant, but the trauma changed everything about her life. 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…
A red gash of a mouth rimmed with impossibly tiny, razor-sharp teeth yawned wide, then swift as a snake, she bent and struck.. For Sandra, daughter of illusionists, Adam and Ophelia, life’s never been run of the mill! But when Adam’s wandering eye lights on yet another conquest, it proves a chorus girl too far, and Sandra’s caught in the reverberations of her parents acrimonious parting. Coerced into restoring her depressed Mother to the bosom of a family Sandra never knew existed, she’s sucked into a situation that even for her is unnerving. From being without a single relative, she suddenly acquires several she’d rather do without, and learns a few home truths she’d prefer not to know. Ophelia, it appears, has not been entirely honest about any number of things. There’s no doubt in Sandra’s mind, the sooner she puts as much distance as possible between herself, her newly discovered nearest and dearest, their peculiar tendencies and their failing hotel business, the happier she’s going to be. Dire straits call for desperate measures and Sandra reluctantly rises to the occasion. A hanged housemaid, a fly-on-the-wall documentary, The Psychic Society and a quasi co-operative journalist all handled correctly should, she reckons, get the family business up and running, which will allow her to do the same – as fast as she can, and in the opposite direction. Things unfortunately move swiftly from bad to farce and then get a hell of a lot darker. One moment Sandra’s struggling to save the family’s income, the next, she’s battling to save their lives. Turns out, some darknesses, once buried, are best left undisturbed
Takeover—One Last Chance for Humanity

Since the announcement of Unbounded existence, the mortal world has quickly polarized. One faction wants all Unbounded—Renegade and Emporium—dead. Others worship them as gods who have come to save the world and bring it immortality. The tension between these groups is ready to explode. 

Meanwhile, the Emporium has a new player, one who has upped the stakes in the battle for humanity. Many innocent mortals are sacrificed as the Emporium Triad grabs for control. 

As Erin Radkey, Ritter Langton, and their Renegade allies struggle to stay one step ahead of the enemy, their increasing abilities are tested to the limit—as is their trust in each other. They have only one chance to change the game, to save humanity. A desperate plan that requires an ultimate price no one can bear to pay. 

But everything is not always what it seems, especially in the world of the Unbounded. 

“The Takeover amazingly pulls in threads from all the previous novels for a richly satisfying series conclusion. From Jace’s parentage and Stella’s baby, to Keene’s ability and Cort’s past, it all comes together. The Unbounded series is one that will always stand out in my mind.” Jody Babcock 

Note from the author:
Thank you so much for going on this journey with me. The Takeover is the final installment in the Unbounded series from Erin's point-of-view. There are four more shorter spin-off stories that are strongly connected to the series from the viewpoint of the other main characters that tell what they were doing at various points in the Unbounded timeline. I also have other series in the works, and I hope to see you again in their pages. Enjoy!
