Not love stories, although some of them do include aspects of that. But whereas love stories are often sad, each of the selections in A Wink and a Smile has either a 'happily-ever-after' ending, or at least a strong suggestion that this is where the characters are heading.
That doesn't mean these tales all sound the same; to the contrary, we've found quite a diverse collection of romances. Yes, there are a couple of traditional romances, and there's a healthy handful of budding romances, but we've included a story set in the future, and a couple of fantasy tales. Within this mix, you will meet several matchmakers and you'll see couples reconcile, and even a few stories that will make you laugh.
As always, each story in the Read on the Run series of anthologies is short, to suit your busy lifestyle.
This Box-Set includes Drawn to You, Addicted to You, and Lost in You.
When former partners, unlicensed private investigator Big Dick Rickenbacher and Homicide Lieutenant Salvador Castellano, find their cases overlapping in this violent world of sexual depravity, old flames rekindle, old secrets finally surface, and old crimes demand retribution.
An erotically charged hardboiled noir mystery!
"ALL WHITE GIRLS is a one-sitting, in-your-face, rapid-fire, hard-boiled mystery: and it's damn good.... This is not a book to lend to your mother (at least not my mother). ALL WHITE GIRLS is full of sexual depravity. But oh is it fun!"--David Meerman Scott, I Love A Mystery Newsletter.
"...this is one of the best pieces of hard-boiled fiction I've read in a long time. It's lean, it's short, and it left me feeling like I'd been dumped in an alley behind one of strip clubs in the story. 'All White Girls' is a sorely needed reinvention of the tired serial killer tale." --James Winter, Plots With Guns!
In search of the truth, Jacob travels to a small northern Wisconsin fishing resort. There he meets Ben Anderson, a brutally lonely man, who knocks him off his feet. Ben prompts Jacob to reevaluate his life. He’s a dozen years older than Jacob, still recovering from the death of his long time love, and doesn’t want to leave anyone a widower. But a jaded New Yorker on a soul-searching mission might be just the man to convince the grieving Ben that it's never too late to begin again.
