Enough is enough, so he calls in reinforcements in the form of a spiritual medium named Chris Mellon – hopefully she can help him shoo the spirit-critters out of his house. But Chris can’t even make a dent in the problem before she’s got troubles of her own – her twin sister has apparently committed suicide, and now she’s devastated.

And that coin? Even if Ace can find it, the newest member of his ghostly family may be too smitten with Essie Blackthorn to cross overâ?¦or maybe he’ll take her with him.

Dark Falls (Dark Falls, CO Romantic Thriller Book 1)

by Lori Ryan

“John, this is my sister, Janna. John and I were friends in college.” Ava watched as Janna’s eyes went wide.

Janna looked to Ava. “Big John?”

Oh Lord. Ava’s cheeks flamed hot and she knew they must be red. She and Janna shared everything, which meant Janna knew all about John in college. She just hadn’t expected Janna to put the man standing before her together with their conversations about John in college. And yes, Janna had truly nicknamed him Big John in college, but it wasn’t for the reasons one might think.

Not that he couldn’t have earned the nickname that way. Back in the day, one of Ava’s friends had described John’s body as “call him if you need your house moved over a few inches” kind of big. She wasn’t wrong.

Ava put her hands to her cheeks and a small semblance of a laugh slipped from her lips. She dodged John’s laughing eyes and Janna’s impish grin without answering and led the way back to her office.

She could try to explain to John that Janna had given him the nickname because that was how he’d seemed to her at the time. Ava had talked about John so much when they were dating that Janna had labeled him “big” in Ava’s world.

She didn’t know how to say all that without making the whole situation worse, though, so she clamped down on her lips, imprisoning them between her teeth as she shut the door behind them.

The look he gave her told her he was enjoying this far too much.

“For your information,” she said, crossing her arms, “Big John is another John. Not you. It’s…” she didn’t have any ideas… “someone else.”

“Uh-huh.” He matched her crossed arms and let a smile cross his face.


A cop hunting a violent thrill seeker. A woman from his past. Will their heated attraction put his case on ice?

Detective John Sevier never wanted to be anything but a cop. When a string of jewelry heists turns into vicious attacks and threatens the woman he let slip away years before, he’ll stop at nothing to bring the adrenaline junkie to justice.

Ava McNair never looked at her life as a sacrifice. She loves taking care of her dad and running her family’s jewelry store with her sister. So what if that meant dropping out of college and leaving behind a man who just might have been the one? When fate gives her and the detective who got away a second shot at love, will she step up and take it or will life tear them apart again?

With Ava in the path of a killer, will John be able to move fast enough to take down a violent man set on wreaking as much damage as he can before he goes down?
