Her Alaska Bears (An MFM Shifter Winter Romance) (Seven Nights of Shifters Book 2)

by Keira Flynn

The weather outside is frightful…but her mountain men bears will keep her warm…

Talia Tuesday has it all: an apartment in Los Angeles, a tight-knit group of friends, and a dream job as the head chef of a high-end restaurant. Then she gets the phone callâ??her beloved big brother has lost his life in a tragic fishing accident, leaving behind Ella, a 12-year-old daughter Tali barely knows. Tali trades her bustling L.A. world for a tiny, Arctic town.

Just when things couldn’t get worse, Tali also finds herself in the orbit of the rude, judgmental, and devastatingly handsome Hudson Quinlan, her late-brother’s best friend. Hudson’s opinions on how to parent the moody young Ella are almost as strong as his muscular arms.

Then there’s Cole Blackburn, a brooding stranger who draws her to him like a magnet. His walls are built up high, and she knows there are secrets lurking behind his fathomless, dark eyesâ?¦secrets that have everyone in town steering clear of him.

If all that wasn’t, members of their tight-knit community have started to disappear, sending the townsfolk into a panic…and it seems as though these two vastly different men may be the only ones capable of shedding light on the mystery.

Note: This standalone 100K word book has a slow burn, medium-heat-level, and a MFM ménage romance involving two shifter men, no cheating, and a HEA for everyone involved!



Another One: A Supernatural Crime Thriller (The Parker Trilogy Book 1)

by Tony Faggioli

Detective Evan Parker is being haunted by the past. After two tours in the Afghanistan War, he thought the horrors that he witnessed there were behind him. But the death of his partner has now opened a dark hole of memories that are threatening to swallow Parker alive. Desperate to maintain his grip, he focuses on the last unsolved case his partner left behind: the brutal murder of Hymie Villarosa. 

Father Bernardino Soltera is being destroyed by the present. After ministering to the gang ridden streets of East L.A. for over twenty years, he’s unable to see past the pain and suffering that drugs and violence have wreaked on his neighborhood; he’s ready to give up. But when a young girl confesses that she’s pregnant and her boyfriend will hurt her if she doesn’t get an abortion? Father Soltera decides to make one more stand.

Gang member Hector Villarosa is being mocked by the future. After being released from jail he discovers the love of his life is with another man. As the leader of his gang, losing face could mean losing his life, and the fact that detectives are now asking questions about the death of Hector’s cousin, Hymie, isn’t helping. But Hector’s bigger problem is the demon that has followed him out of jail and on to the mean streets of East L.A.

Three men, one neighborhood. All about to discover that the veil between this world and the next is razor thin. Because at any second? The good cop can kill, the violent gangster can save and the godly priest can sin.

“This is a book that so profoundly illustrates the never ending battle of good and evil, I’m almost without the words to explain it.” – Amazon 5 Star Review

“Faggioli does an astonishing job bringing both criminals and cops to life as three-dimensional, sympathetic characters.” – Amazon 5 Star Review

by Chelo Diaz-Ludden

“My thumb pad rests along the crack in the porcelain that’s been filled in with gold, a Japanese tradition that honors past wounds. I think that if people were repaired the same way; foreheads etched with brass hairline fractures, chips of silver embedded along fingers, bolts of gold shot through hearts, then we would know the places to be careful with.” And so Anne’s journey begins with her intuitively knowing that she’s wounded and her sister’s dissappearence the catalyst to discovering how and where.

by S. W. Hubbard

**Book 5 in the series, Tailspinner, releases on 12/22. Preorder now!** Welcome to the High Peaks of the Adirondacks.
Beauty surrounds you. So does evil.

Police Chief Frank Bennett patrols the not-so-mean streets of Trout Run, New York, an idyllic town nestled in the rugged Adirondack Mountains. But natural beauty is no protection against the evil in people’s hearts. Secrets…deception…con games…murder–there’s never a dull moment fighting small town crime.

This boxed set contains three Frank Bennett mysteries:

The Lure
Police Chief Frank Bennett has his hands full when a group of environmental activists shows up in Trout Run trying to close down Raging Rapids, a popular tourist attraction.

Frank thinks they’re all noise.
Until their leader turns up with a bullet in his heart.

Now Frank must figure out why this group targeted Trout Run. And how they’re connected to a feral family who live off the grid.

As Frank untangles the clues, he confronts the lure of cash, the lure of power, and the lure of a happy family.As he navigate the dangerous intersection of love and greed, one wrong turn could spell death to those he most wants to protect.

Blood Knot
When a tough-love school for troubled teens opens its doors in Trout Run, Frank Bennett worries about the arrival of so many juvenile delinquents on his turf.

When a North Country Academy teacher is mauled to death by a bear while leading wilderness expedition, Frank’s worst fears are confirmed. Evidence points to sabotage.

As Frank investigates, he learns more about the school’s controversial techniques: isolation, restraints, and mind control. . He meets students who might be terrified…or might be brilliant liars. And he uncovers disturbing information about the Academy’s headmaster. What is more impressive? His track record of putting teens back on the right path? Or his skill in covering up past scandals?

Then an Academy student turns up dead, and Frank must unravel a knot of deceit and revenge whose threads lead right into the heart of the Trout Run community.

Dead Drift
Frank Bennett investigates three puzzling crimes in these short mysteries with big twists. In the Christmas mystery “Chainsaw Nativity,” Frank’s relentless pursuit of the thief who stole the Joseph statue from the town’s Nativity scene brings him up against the limits of compassion. In “Losers Weepers”, a locket that’s lost, found, and stolen holds the secret to past betrayals. And in “Coyote Justice” Frank’s simmering attraction to Penny the librarian threatens to divert him from the path of justice. These three mystery short stories explore twisting Adirondack mountain trails just as surely as the dangerous terrain of the human heart.

After years of methodical planning and forming strategic alliances, King is on the brink of finally being accepted by the Syndicate when a beautiful young Mafia princess arrives into town from Sicily. Smitten, he decides he must have her as his own. Unfortunately, his arch nemesisâ??his nefarious cousin Anthonyâ??has already laid claim to her. A war for her affection ensues. When the smoke clears, King is left serving a life sentence in a Federal prison, while Anthony is elevated to Syndicate underboss, ranked second only to his father, the Syndicate’s new “Capo di tutti Capi,” Boss of all Bosses.

But Don Falcone is a crafty tactician himself. He has kept a favor on the books for over fifty years, and when he finally calls it in, King emerges from prison a free man. Read on and see what it takesâ?¦ TO BE A KING!
