Fractured Lies: LIE—NOUN. An intentionally false statement. Some days I didn’t know where the lies finished and the truth began. It happened with one innocent lie, and before I knew it I’d weaved a whole web. Nobody likes a liar. But what if you didn’t have a choice? What if you had to lie to protect yourself and your child? If the lies were revealed, I’d be a shell of my former self, fractured into a thousand tiny pieces. I just hoped they could be put back together.
Exposed: SECRET—NOUN. Something that is kept it meant to be kept unknown or unseen by others. Secrets aren’t meant to be uncovered, shining light onto your past sins. Keeping them was hard, especially from the one person you never wanted to find out. But what do you do when that secret reveals itself, bringing with it painful memories? Would you reveal it? Or keep it as long as you could? I didn’t think it could get worse, but it was nothing compared to what was coming. A storm was brewing, about to destroy everything I had kept locked away. Only one question remained: would it bring us closer together, or tear us apart for good? (Read the full blurb on Amazon)
He owns the spotlight, she lives in the shadows. Vee: My only purpose? Keep lethal cryptids in check, and our Company existence secret. Sometimes a girl needs a night of karaoke and tequila though. Instead, after a vicious new cryptid species crashes the party, I end up saving and carting home a way arrogant, way hot chef. With Bruce Kantor now a temporary roommate it seems like the perfect time to indulge my forbidden civilian fascination—especially the friends-with-benefits part. But the feelings he ignites threaten my oath and mission. Bruce: Damn right I’m the bad boy of the culinary world. I live for the limelight, and the legions of #BruceTheBastard fans love my temper as much as my food. After stomping out of one high-profile gig, all I’m looking for are directions to my next. What I get is a giant Komodo Dragon-wannabe, and Vee Ramirez, the most infuriatingly irresistible woman to ever hit my radar. Even if we survive the relentless monster on my trail, our future is toast unless I can convince Vee there’s more to life than the Company. Welcome to Region Two.
It’s survival of the fittest, but first you have to fit in.
Shae is sure the icy rage that claws at her is driving away her friends and pulling her closer to the wrong boy. After all, it’s Aiden she has always secretly wanted, not Callum, who has barely spoken to her in the last year.
But, as her protected life unravels, she discovers the violent supernatural world that lurks in her quiet hometown and the ancient feuds that threaten to destroy both her friends and her family.
To save those she loves, Shae must succumb to her own fury and take on the Ravensgaard, the renegade warriors of the Order, but as the battle approaches her deepest fears are coming true, she’s becoming just like them. Shae’s not sure she can afford the price she’ll have to pay—her own humanity.
I need a fresh start and a better vetting process for boyfriends. So after leaving my obnoxiously wealthy family and jerk ex-boyfriend behind, I kick-start my new life in small-town Landry with a teaching job and a self-imposed dating ban. For the foreseeable future, my life is all about school supplies and celibacy. And wine. Definitely wine. Then I meet Taylor Shaw—the devastatingly attractive high school football coach who makes me laugh, steals my dry erase markers, and ignites a fire in me that I can’t seem to extinguish. He’s got the whole town under his spell, and he’s determined to win me over, too. But drooling over his glistening form as he runs practice drills, and fantasizing about inappropriate trysts under the bleachers aside, I made myself a promise and I’m determined to stick to it. I tell him we can be friends and coworkers—nothing more. The truth is, my family ruins every relationship I ever have, and I won’t risk subjecting Taylor to their manipulations. But “just friends” is harder than it sounds. And celibacy might be downright impossible.
Love didn’t have a place in Merrick Ashford’s life. The former Navy SEAL’s entire focus was on his job with Ruthless Corp. Relationships were the last thing on his mind while working on a hit…until Audrey Cantrell spotted him in the middle of an assignment.
Merrick didn’t have any other choice. He had to kidnap the beautiful college student to protect his identity. Or at least that was what he told himself.
The hitman had already fallen hard and fast for Audrey, and he was going to keep her close until she returned his love.
This June, meet 22 heroes who are downright dangerous. These alphas do nothing half-way. They may have blood on their hands, but they have love in their hearts. Some romances were written in the stars—but these hitmen must fight heaven and earth for the women they love.
It was too soon. There was so much more to learn about Mason. But love was already creeping in the back door of my heart, and looking for a place to get comfortable…
I know I’m a Daddy’s girl. My family is oddly close, except for my kooky Aunt Betsy, whom I’ve only met a few times. She did a crystal reading on my 16th birthday, telling me that I’d fall in love with a wildly improbable man with a bent little finger, and green and gold eyes.
Imagine my shock when her prediction came true! But I can’t let myself fall in love with Mason – he’s Dad’s boss and 14 years older. He’s cold but brilliant. Beautiful, but… I’m not the right woman for him.
No matter that he seems instantly obsessed, and makes me his intern so that I’ll stay close. No matter that prickling sparks run up my spine every time he touches me. No amount of lust is worth risking Dad’s promotion… is it?

Gage Ryan was a notorious heartbreaker, on screen and off. A confirmed bachelor, this world-famous actor dashed the hopes of millions of adoring fans when he rejected marriage and commitment: no wedding bells, no baby carriages.
He’d never had cause to consider the alternative, but that all changed the night he met rising star, Morgan Kelly. Too bad her first impression of him was less than favorable.
Although their attraction was instant and mutual, Morgan wasn’t interested. Hollywood heartthrobs were trouble. Especially Gage, a man used to women who would do anything for his attention. Not happening.
But Gage knew how to go after what he wanted, and his desire for Morgan was stronger than anything he’d ever felt before. Powerful enough to make him reconsider his previously held beliefs on love and longevity. He just had to convince her of how serious he was. It was a good thing he was ready for the chase.
A story-telling rancher’s own words entice two eavesdroppers to venture to his Montana ranch and search for hidden treasure.
Troy McAllister is determined to keep all the flirty, local horsewomen that frequent his ranch at a safe distance. He enjoys the attention, but a real relationship? No Way! He’s too busy overseeing his ranch, the horses, and the guests — with subtle assistance from Kitchi, a wise Native American man.
Ivy Radcliff stumbles into grave danger while spending a few weeks at the Lonely Horse Ranch. Why is she there? Carrying a heart-breaking secret, she needs a diversion, and, as a would-be novelist, she’s following a lead for a story. Love in a loft, naked bull riding, and a serious search and rescue take her by surprise.
Troy and Ivy are pleasantly shocked when intermittent sparks fly between them, but unknown evil forces are at work. A plane flies high, a gangster waits, and Ivy turns up missing. Nothing makes sense. Time is of the essence, mysteries must be solved, or people will die.
