Lure of the Dragon – Bonus Edition

by Anna Lowe

One great paranormal romance + two steamy, satisfying bonus scenes!
This special edition includes the full story of LURE OF THE DRAGON (Book 1 in the Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart series/2018 RONE AWARD FINALIST) plus two exclusive bonus epilogues – all bundled in one volume for the first time!

Nothing is forbidden to this elite corps of shifter bodyguards and private investigators…except falling in love.

Good dragons? Bad dragons? Twenty-four hours ago, private chef Tessa Byrne didn’t know about the terrifying world of shifters. Now she knows too much, like the fact that a ruthless dragon lord is determined to claim her â?? forever. Tessa flees to Maui, where sunny skies, swaying palms, and a handsome stranger conspire to play tricks with her heart. Can she truly trust Kai Llewellyn and his band of battle-hardened shapeshifters to save her from a gruesome fate?

Don’t trust a human, and never, ever fall in love with one. Those are lessons Kai learned the hard way. But Tessa is different. Her emerald eyes mirror the mysterious pendant she wears, and her flaming red hair makes his heart race. Is his inner dragon just greedy for a new kind of treasure, or is Tessa his destined mate?

Two exclusive bonus epilogues focusing on Kai and Tessa’s happily-ever-after in episodes that take place on Maui and in the desert Southwest. THE MATING BITE picks up right where Lure of the Dragon leaves off and reveals all the steamy details of Kai and Tessa’s hottest night. A DRAGON’S HONEYMOON is a fun (and funny) story that shows Tessa’s first lessons in dragon flight.

ALOHA SHIFTERS: JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling new series set on the tropical shores of Maui. Each story is a page-turner packed with action, emotion, and romance! If you like Magnum, PI and smoldering hot, alpha shapeshifters, you’ll love these books!

* No cliff hangers. Each story is a standalone paranormal romance with adult content. This story includes strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, billionaires, military romance, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, fantasy romance, and exotic, tropical locales! *

The Rebuilt Man

by William Hallstead

He came to consciousness in a room furnished with antiques. His forehead, cheek and nose were painfully bandaged. He had no idea where he was, why he was here, or most disturbing, who he was. Then he discovered watching him from the corner of the room the raven-haired woman with the emerald eyes.
“You a nurse?”
“No, Don, I’m your wife.”

Abruptly after awakening to a life he didn’t know, and attended by a doctor he didn’t trust, Don Franklin was plunged into a terrifying plot against his existence.

His injuries were treated with meticulous care; there was the loving solicitude of his wife, the friendly visit from his business partner. His questions were answered, but somehow not in a way that would clear things up.

Then he was told that his wife was taking him to Hawaii, an ideal place for a convalescence. And it was here that he received the shocking answers to his questions…

William Hallstead has been a broadcasting executive in Maryland, a crop duster and glider pilot, a flight instructor, highway designer and PR man. He is the author of twenty-one books, including six suspense novels. He and his wife live on Sanibel Island, Florida.

When a famous author comes to town for a book signing, he’s interested in seeing some of the spookier sides of Devil’s Moon. Ripley takes him to a haunted house that’s rumored to be haunted by a woman who places a curse on anyone who has the misfortune of walking through the door.

When the author turns up dead, Ripley must find out if it was the curse that killed him, or a real murderer. At least she has the help of hunky Brannon Landon, paranormal investigator and police officer.

The paranormal forces are much darker than Ripley ever imagined. Now Ripley must find the killer before she becomes a permanent resident of the Devil’s Moon Cemetery.
