What is done in shadows always finds its way to the light.

Ellie Kin is drifting through life. It’s true that her Empathic powers help keep the bills paid. She assists the police with investigations and solves crimes on a freelance basis, but that gig is barely enough to keep the lights on in her crappy apartment.

Ellie Kin is about to have her life turned completely upside down. One fateful night is enough to change everything in her world. After a car accident, something comes out of the dark and turns her into so much more than just an Empath.
Ellie Kin is going to bring the world to the brink of war.

Wolf’s Bane is the first book in the Legacy of the Wolf series.

Working for my ex-boyfriend? Fine.
But falling for him again? That's a deal breaker.

Dancing around my office in my bra isn't exactly the way I'd have chosen to run into my ex for the first time in twelve years, but what can I say? Wes Lake has always had a knack for showing up at the most inopportune times.

Unfortunately, he also has a knack for leaving. That's why I've made every effort to put him out of my head -- and my heart.

But this time, he needs my help. Wes Lake, head of Manhattan's preeminent real estate development firm, needs my tiny little marketing start-up to take on a special project at his company. The money's too good to turn down, so even though I'm leery of working for my ex, I accept.

There's just one problem:

I can't stop kissing him.

I know better. I swear I do. But that doesn't stop my lips from being magnetically drawn to his every time we're in the same room. Can you blame me? He's gorgeous, wealthy, powerful -- and he still remembers how to push all the right buttons.

So to keep things professional, Wes and I strike another kind of deal.

- No kissing.
- No talking about the past.
- No seeing each other outside of work.
- Did I mention no kissing?

Shouldn't be a problem, right? Except I might have underestimated Wes. Because when it comes to business -- or pleasure -- he'll do anything to seal the deal.

Even if it means breaking my heart in the process.

Obsessed. Consumed.

She'll be the one to go down.

BOOK 1: THE INNOCENT FIGHTER



From the moment I sensed him, I knew he was innocent...

I’m an FBI agent. None of my peers know it, but I have a sixth sense that helps me track down fugitives. Once I’m assigned to a case, I always bring them in without a problem.

That is…until I met David "The Celtic" O'Brien. He is definitely not someone I should be falling for. He’s an MMA fighter covered with tattoos, and known for his skill at knocking fighters out cold. Worse, he’s a wanted fugitive…the one I’m assigned to bring in.

My plan is to turn him in. I refuse to get attached to him. Yet, there is just something about him. He draws me in. Makes me want to prove his innocence. But proving his innocence could come at the cost of losing my job, or worse, my life. Am I crazy?!? Should I risk it all for a man I just met?


BOOK 2: THE MISSING GIRL



Even though she isn't my daughter, my motherly instincts have kicked in... someone took her, and it's up to me to find out who.

My intuition had been telling me something was off...we shouldn't have left Ellie there.

If it weren't for David, Ellie's MMA fighter dad, who also happens to be my hot fiancé, I wouldn't even have her in my life. Now she's GONE, and I'll do anything in my power to keep her from getting hurt. Even if it means risking my job and my life...AGAIN.

My boss has forbidden me to be involved with this case...he's sadly mistaken if he thinks I'm just going to sit by and wait for those other incompetent agents to find her.

Time is running out. We have to find Ellie, and we have to find her now...


AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a two book series with more to come in the future. The two single books each have great reviews. Adrianna and David are a very likable couple that you will want to read more about! Enjoy the read!

A fatal mistake catapults Barry into the adventure of a lifetime.

Determined to use Cori as a pawn in a deadly game of revenge, nothing prepares Ryker for the staggering emotion her touch unleashes or the brutal need to claim her as his own.

When Cori is caught in the middle of a bitter feud, will Ryker’s secrets destroy her or finally awaken the fierceness inside her?

DIREN - he's rich, gorgeous, charming…and a total ass.

AYLA - she's stunning, innocent, loyal…and she's being blackmailed.

No one believed there was a woman out there who would be able to break through Diren’s jaded walls. Until Ayla proved everyone wrong and did the unimaginable.

But then Diren discovers that Ayla is hiding a big secret, that she’s just like everyone else who tries to use him, then betray him.

Now those walls are stronger than ever and Diren vows to make Ayla pay.

He refuses to see it, but Ayla had no choice, and her secret is forcing her to choose…between the rock…or the hard place.

Can she get Diren to see that…before he destroys her, and himself too?

I'm dreaming of marriage and a baby - but I never imagined Brad would show up out of the blue with flowers and propose.

He was my best friend.
The man who broke my heart so many years ago.
Now, he's back to give me the one thing I want most in the world.

 
Brad:
Mia was my everything.
She was my best friend - but I never told her how I really felt.
Not even when I took her innocence.
Or moved away and left her with nothing but our promise:
If we were still single at 35, we'd get married and have a baby.
We haven't spoken since that night.
I can understand her resentment.
She doesn't know why I had to stay away.
Maybe I should tell her what really happened.
At first she might deny me.
Make fun of our stupid marriage pact.
But I'll make her remember my touch.
Devour every inch of her body.
Show her we're meant to be so much more than 'just friends'.

The end of the world is nigh, and Yazid Valerian, warrior priest of Ilaweh, is alone with the truth: the time of the Dead God's prophecy is at hand, and the world's fate hangs in the balance. His only hope is to lead an expedition across the sea in search of fabled Nihlos, City of Sorcerers, where he hopes to make allies of ancient enemies.

Kariana Tasinal was never trained to be empress of Nihlos, and she never wanted the job. Aiul Amrath, respected physician and heir to his house, is close to war with his mother over his choice to marry a commoner. Yazid’s arrival will force Kariana to confront her crippling lack of leadership skills, and turn Aiul down dark paths he never imagined.

As cultures clash, Yazid must face the truth: he and his men may well be the cause of the very catastrophe they intended to prevent. The end of the world will not begin in his own land as he had imagined.

It has already begun here, in Nihlos.

Laurence’s new lover is half his age. The problem? His relationship is about to make his life a lot more complicated…

Successful, sensible, and settled in his ways, single dad Laurence isn’t looking for love when he runs into the young man who sweeps him off his feet… and onto his knees. With an upcoming raise on the line and a son to care for, he can’t let an unconventional relationship jeopardize the future of his family. He’s a parent first and a lover second, and that’s the way it has to be.

Right?

The only thing Alex loves more than older men is being filthy with them. The problem? Sometimes, it backfires in the worst ways.

Up-and-coming painter Alex is broken in ways others can’t see, and he copes with the pain by drowning himself in experience—especially experienced men. But when he crosses paths with Laurence, he finds himself drawn down an avenue of life he’s sworn he’ll never visit again.

Men are meant to be disposable, and Laurence is only supposed to be a hookup… so why does Alex feel so safe whenever he’s around?

When a matter of concealed identity threatens Laurence and Alex’s bond, they have a choice—rise above the forces that seek to divide them and find happiness with each other, or let their problems grow too great to conquer.

Only one mage is on my side. And lucky for me, he's hot.

The more we secrets we uncover, the more danger we get into. But I'm not going to stop until the killer is brought to justice.

Achieve More, Create More, And Experience More Success And Joy - While Taking Less Action!


Do you often feel like you're spinning your wheels without getting anything done? Do you feel tired, overwhelmed, and frustrated that you're not accomplishing your goals?

If so, it's time to 80/20 Your Life!

Imagine getting everything done while having the spare time you need to relax and pursue your passions. Imagine improving your career, home life, relationships, and health, spending a fraction of the time and effort you believe is required.

It's possible. It's even easy. And the solution is surprisingly simple.

 


Dragons, elves, and dark lords are epic... but they have no place in this tale. The "epic" lies elsewhere, in a story that is a little deeper, a little more about philosophy, a little more about the human condition.

All men, by nature, desire to know. But not everything can be or should be known.

As a scholar, Alpheus never cared for what he once believed to be fantasy. But his encounter with a mysterious sorcerer has changed everything.

Sorcery is real, even for mortals. Every king in the land is wary of this new power, perhaps each plotting to claim a major stake of the destructive power, if not to devour other kingdoms, then to build on the ability to achieve such a feat.

The misery of war, which ended only seven years ago, might return sooner than most expected. And when war erupts again, it promises to be bloodier than the previous—for it will be fought with the power from the heavens, with sorcery.

Given the schemes of the many wicked men in power, Alpheus realises with reluctance that he, among other learned people, are responsible for fighting for a future they all deserve.

A Serenade for Selene is the first book to a planned trilogy to the series. As an introduction to the series, it purports to lay most of the foundation to the intricate world in which the story is set.

A week in paradise is ours for the taking.

#3 - Take no prisoners:
She'll be the one to come to me...for me.

Foolproof,right?
Otherwise our fake marriage is broken before it even begins.
Unless I convince her to go all in...and turn this game into the real deal.

Male Order Bride?
Yeah, I lost a damn bet.
And got way more than I bargained for.

It was supposed to be a joke.
A good time. Late night, up to no good.

But then she shows up. Katrina.
Beautiful. Brilliant. Driven.
And the brand new CEO of my company...

Now she thinks she's the boss.
Says she owns me.

Well baby, you have a lot to learn.
I'm the boss here. Always in charge.
She wants to climb the corporate ladder?
I have something else for her to climb.

We're about to engage in battle.
What was supposed to be an acquisition
Is now a hostile takeover.

I may own the company.
But now she owns me...


What if weapon technology advances so fast that a military science fiction universe would be a death sentence?

Simply put, we'd create a weapon that can destroy everything and some idiot would use it.

Welcome to the universe after we finally conquer the urge to blow up everything.
Think of it like this, 'Out there' the grownups are in charge, by necessity.

But even a universe at peace, is still a very dangerous place.

22 years ago, a spaceship crashed on Earth Seven, a primitive 3 rated planet under contact quarantine. The boy who found the wreckage is now the man who will unite the planet under his rule. Allor heals the sick with alien technology. Allor will end the cult wars. His sister runs an informant network and collects the heads of his rivals. His mother has created a religion to worship him. Oh, dear!

All planets in contact quarantine are called Earth and given a numerical designation. For example, you are on Earth Five. What? Don't act surprised. Look around. War, famine, poverty, ecological disasters, murderous mythologies, Trump? And no one comes to visit, not a single tourist? You’ve had plenty of clues.

The History Department sends Koven Modi, a rookie Field Historian, to Earth Seven to investigate the use of comms technology on a planet with a medieval civilization. Koven is not the best person for the job, he's the only one left. Everyone else is out looking for missing Physics Professor Klept and his dog, who might just cause the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies to collide. Koven's goals are simple. He wants to avoid getting killed, avoid work as much as possible, and avoid getting dumped by Tanit, his girlfriend.

Earth Seven is a story that challenges basic sci-fi assumptions and offers new alternatives. What started as simple thoughts, 'Why do they always ..., what if …,' resulted in Earth Seven, a small book of slightly larger ideas.

An example? OK.

How would you like to be the most popular pizza topping in the galaxy? Yea, I didn't think so. Out among the stars, we're all vegetarians. What? Ohhhh, you believe pizza was invented on Earth Five? Well that's delicious, but incorrect.

But she’s a city girl, just like the last one who left him at the altar. He’ll guard his heart – but he can’t help wanting her.

She’s checking him out…in more ways than one

Jennifer Kendall doesn’t mind a tough job, but the handsome Stetson is trouble of a different kind. When he isn’t making her mad, he’s filling her head with all sorts of forbidden fantasies.

The sparks between them fly even faster when the road washes out and Jennifer has to spend the night on the farm. But passion alone won’t pay the bills. Can Jennifer find a way for Stetson to save his farm?

And if she can’t, will he ever forgive her?

Billionaire. Ace pilot. Genius. The media adores me. The feeling was never mutual until I met Zoey Atkinson.

Three years ago, I went from American hero to American disgrace when footage leaked of me becoming the first NASA astronaut to have sex in space. 

Instead of regret, I was filled with determination. I used my wealth to build the world’s leading commercial spaceflight company. 

While I was pushing humanity towards the stars, fate was pushing Zoey towards me. 

She’s a young, ambitious, struggling reporter, and I know I should stay away from her. But her lush curves, flawless face, and sharp wit are captivating. 

She's an irresistible challenge, and she clearly views me the same way.

Our reputations aren't the only thing we're risking. When my past mistakes come back to haunt me and we’re faced with sabotage, blackmail, and cold-blooded killers, we'll have to trust each other if we want to survive.

There's no risk I won't take to keep Zoey safe, happy, and next to me. Forever.

Ben Knight has held a lot of titles—devoted son, big brother to six siblings, captain of the Marine’s Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team and his best-known gig of Louisiana playboy. But the ladies are just going to have to understand that his time’s stretched thin when he takes on the leadership of a new special ops force.

With his brothers as sidekicks.

Worst idea ever. But a decision Ben has no control over, and control is his middle name. Actually, it’s Bartholomew but thank God nobody knows that, except one pretty little brown-eyed Cajun girl with access to too much information about the Knight family and an oh-so-sweet sassy mouth. A mouth that he’s never forgotten even though it’s been three months since he’s last had her in his bed, against a wall and over a barstool.

Dahlia was a victim of the notorious Ben Knight’s love-’em-and-leave-’em lifestyle, and it ticks her off that she can’t forget him. Maybe it’s that bad-boy smile or the way he looks like sin poured into low-slung jeans. When he comes sniffing around again, her libido makes her jump into action—and straight into a world of secrets surrounding Ben. Leading her to question whether her heart can withstand a life with a man who might not be alive tomorrow.

I'm Aodan. A thief. A really good thief. 

My best friend Margrite and I are nearly out of this crappy city. With this last job, we'll have enough to disappear on an island somewhere. We're so close I can practically smell the rum drinks.

But then all hell breaks loose when I wake up as a dragon. You know, teeth, claws, blue scales, furniture exploding under my massive form. The feeling of smoke is a permanent fixture in my throat. The dragon appears when it wants to, and I black out. 

I don't have time for this. 

To add to all this drama, I think someone is trying to kill me. My home is gone. I have nowhere to hide while I sleep off the crazy dragon hangover that comes after each appearance of the beast. As if the dragon scales weren't enough, I'm now plagued by this new voice in my head - some annoying guy wanting to talk, and meet, and who knows what else? All I want is for me and my best friend to get out of town alive.

If I could stop sprouting a tail at inappropriate times, that would be pretty great too.
