A Mail-Order Heart (Miners to Millionaires Book 1)

by Janelle Daniels

Clara Stewart has every intention of marrying Ivan, her mail-order groom, but her plans fall apart when he dies before her arrivalâ??leaving not one fiancée but nine! When the female-starved town offers them Ivan’s home and claim, Clara steps forward and promises to do whatever necessary to see to the women’s future, regardless of her own attraction to the town’s sheriff.

Sheriff Sawyer Morrison had one goal: to protect his town. But when nine women arrive, all claiming to be mail-order brides for the same man, his once quiet life is thrown into chaos. Safeguarding them from aggressive suitors is nothing compared to the inner battle he faces over Clara, a woman who heats his bloodâ?¦ but can never be his own.

But when Clara is kidnapped by the same person who’s sabotaging their mine, Sawyer must choose between the life he knew and the future he craves.

Kalie might be his brother’s perfect match, but Hunter can’t seem to stop himself from falling for her. She’s smart, funny and down to earth. And after her makeover, she’s drop dead gorgeous.

Lady and the Champ

by Katherine Lace

He’s a single dad, and he needs a lady

Chloe

I massage naked guys for a living, but it’s strictly business. As a physical therapist, I get my hands on the hottest guys in sports, but I’m a professional. I have rules.

And I’m *this* close to breaking every one of them.

It’s all his fault: Austin “The Champ” Sherwood, the gorgeous football god. He’s most valuable on the field, and most desired in the bedroom. He’s my obnoxious patient. I hate him. I want him. But we’re forced together as he’s recovering from a season-ending injury.

Rejecting him should be easy. I shouldn’t want to date a client, but my heart melts when I see him with his baby daughter. A football god who’s not a player? He’s a dream-come-true, but I can’t date him. Our forbidden romance could get me fired.

But what will we lose if we walk away?

Austin

They call me the Champ, but I’m no player

Let’s get one thing straight: I don’t date. When I see women, it’s just to get laid. That’s the way it is when you’re a single dad. Between my football career and raising my kid, I have no time to play the field. My world revolved around my baby girl until Chloe.

She’s my stuck-up, hot as hell physical therapist. She’s mouthy. Gorgeous. Smart as hell. And she hates me. She doesn’t like football, and I’m a wide-receiver. She doesn’t have kidsâ??I’m a single dad.

Girls like her don’t go for guys like me, but I can’t get her out of my damn mind. I’ll play again when I heal from my injury, but her hands are the only ones I want on my body. She’s all attitude and sass until her clothes hit the floor. My daughter needs a motherâ??and Chloe’s perfect.

I’ve got one goal in mind, and it’s not just scoring with the Lady.

I want the whole nine yards.

Note: This football romance is a full-length standalone novel with a HEA.

Cherokee Mists: The Complete Set

by Meredith Blevins

NY Times Bestselling authors, and Amazon Bestsellers, have released their award-winning Cherokee Mists books in a must-read fantasy set! Terri Windling, editor, The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror – “Magical . . . deeply rooted in the oldest storytelling traditions of North America. This skillful reworking of mythic themes and archetypes rings true on many levels. For all who love mythic fiction and fantasy.”

COME, GET LOST . . . in the weaving of Native American spirituality and high adventure in the mists of time. Kirkus Reviews named Shadows in the Cave, second novel in the Cherokee Mists, as one of the Top Five Fantasy Books of the Year. Tony Hillerman said, “Drama, emotion, magic, imagination, mysticism, and insight into prehistoric peoples . . . an amazing ride into the unknown.”

Historical Fantasy readers of Jean Auel and Diana Gabaldon will enjoy this series.

THE PROMISED ONE

The Promised One is a magnificent retelling of a Cherokee legend. It brings to life an ancient people and a time of magic in a warm and intimate storyteller’s voice. Adventure, drama, emotion, magic, imagination, mysticism, insight into prehistoric peoplesâ??this book is an amazing ride into the unknown!” Tony Hillerman.

A young Shaman of the Galayi people has had a powerful and frightening vision: it is of the Eagle Feather Cape, the gift of the Thunderbird, which is worn by the Seer of the People to see the future and gain the guidance of the gods. The cape is torn and bloody, and it will no longer bring visions to the Seer of the People.

But the Shaman’s vision also tells her of the cure: a child will be born to the People, a hero who will restore the cape and return the goodwill of the gods to the People.

Dahzi may be that hero, if he can survive the hatred of his grandfather. He was born after his mother’s death, as she fled from her father’s anger. But Dahzi carries the hope of all of his People, along with the power to become a great Chief. He will be tested–by his family, by his people, and by the Gods.

REVIEWS
From Publishers Weekly ~ “Thoughtful retelling of an ancient Cherokee myth, Sunoya, born under a sign revealing that her life would be either one of great blessings or darkness, sets out on a path toward becoming her tribe’s medicine chief. When she is grown and a vision shows her people facing destruction, the responsibility to save themâ??at the cost of a great sacrificeâ??falls first on her and then, years later, on Dahzi, a boy she’s rescued and adopted . . . But, is she up to the task?

“The authors elegantly blend the old tale and contemporary fantasy without being anachronistic or plodding, bringing depth and humor even to elements such as Sunoya’s spirit guide.” (July) Copyright © Reed Business

“A truly remarkable job of bringing forth the North American Indian traditions, and I do not think anyone has done it in this way before.”–Vincent Wilcox, retired curator of Native American artifacts at the Smithsonian Museum.

“The Blevins’s possess a rare skill in masterfully telling a story. True storytellers in the tradition of Native people.” – Lee Francis, Associate Prof. of Native American Studies, University of New Mexico. (Originally published as ‘Zadayi Red.’)

SHADOWS IN THE CAVE

“One of the Top Five Fantasy Books of the Year!” A colorful tale of ancient Cherokee legends, magic, and the beings known as the Immortalsâ??the creators of the world. “The heroic magical quest has a fresh element in SHADOWS IN THE CAVE with its engaging Native American setting. The authors draw effectively on Native American mysticism to create a fine story.” â??Kirkus Reviews.

Let go of everything . . . fall into a young man’s thrilling quest to reach back in time, save his family, and return healing magic to his tribe. A dynamic combination of an ancient quest and Native American Spiritualism.

He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he’s come to finish his latest thriller — that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt’s best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt’s as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn’t even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna’s come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can’t get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she’s just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.
