Wicked Rose (Endless Horizon pirate Stories, Book 3): Endless Horizon Pirate Stories

by Cristi Taijeron

What better place to take refuge from the law than under the shadow of the black flag?

I tried to live within the law, I truly did, sacrificing me independence and me freedom so me wife could live the life she desired, yet it was her enchantment with a ghost from my past that forced me to flee as a wanted man.

Making our way among the lawless with a sea of dissension flooding between us, our own visions of betrayal led us to opposing ends of a battlefield where we were tempted by lust, provoked by power, and bewitched by sorcery. While facing the thrills and tribulations of our life of piracy, that woman of mine showed me how damn difficult it is to love a pirate, and left me wonderin’ just how many times we’d be torn apart by the wicked thorns of our

lifestyle, before she could finally just

be me beautiful rose.

The Downside of Fate

by John Carzello

People sometimes wonder whether or not everything in their lives has been pre-planned from conception until death. Do human beings really have control over their individual destiny? Does God plan everything for everyone? Is life just a matter of random fate?

King Henry VII believed he was a direct descendent of the legendary King Arthur. As a result of this belief, Henry Tudor had detailed plans to construct a Tudor empire similar to Camelot through his son Prince Arthur. The King believed that the ruins of Camelot lied underneath Winchester, England. He believed in his Winchester, England theory so much so that he made sure his son Arthur was born there in 1487.

At this same exact time in history, Pope Innocent VIII had his own plan to rid Europe of witches, pagans, and heretics by any means necessary. The Pope needed the King of England as a partner in his holy war against Satan. Henry VII, and his Chancellor the Archbishop of Canterbury John Morton were reluctant to become holy warriors.

Father William Atherton was a young idealistic parish priest on the staff of the Archbishop of Canterbury, John Morton. This young priest was both charismatic and brilliant. He was known to have performed small miracles for lonely people especially children. The young priest had been nominated and approved to become a Monsignor for his amazing work to combat loneliness in Canterbury, Kent.

In the year 1488, the Pope, the King of England, and the young priest were all positioned to accomplish their individual destinies. However, as often happens, these men were unknowingly nudged on a course that would take them all to different outcomes than the plans they had for their own lives. Was the outcome of their lives their fate, bad luck, or spells? Could it be their God given free-will brought them to their final destinations?

Take a journey back to the fifteenth century and discover how witches were uncovered. Experience how all forms of carnal desire may have been treated. Witness firsthand how men, women, and children were victimized by the corruption of the times. Finally, answer the question whether human nature has changed much from the fifteenth century to now?

HAMLET DEAD: A Modern Reframing of HAMLET

by George Schwimmer Ph.D.

WANT TO UNDERSTAND AND ENJOY THE STORY OF HAMLET WITHOUT HAVING TO LOOK UP EVERY TENTH WORD? How about listening to the play in an audience with the same ease of comprehension as with any modern American play? NOW YOU CAN! And you can experience the play in an absolutely unique modern format.

HAMLET DEAD is a modern reframing of Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. It was created for two basic reasons. First, many of Shakespeare’s words have simply become meaningless to the average American, some words have changed meanings, and the entire Elizabethan syntax is foreign to most Americans. Highly educated persons have difficulty understanding much of what they hear from a Shakespearean stage. Further, uncut printed versions of the play can take as much as four hours to perform on stageâ??consequently, all directors routinely cut large segments of the script. Therefore, not only has Hamlet’s language been reframed, but the total word count has been cut by a third.

Second, the American theatre has seen little invention in dramatic form for the stage in many years, with the resultant stagnation in the production of innovative new scripts. So, this play is an experiment both in text clarification and dramatic form. The play starts in the moments after Hamlet’s death, and is based on the concept of a â??life review’ that persons experiencing near-death experiences have reported. As this life review is in Hamlet’s mind, he views it as he sees fit, which is not always in chronological order.

Since Hamlet is dead, time has disintegrated for him. His mind seizes fragments of his life, rearranges them, searches for their meaning. Time continually folds forwards and backwards onto itself. Scenes explode, implode, penetrate one another, collapse onto each other, in kaleidoscopic patterns of images and action. A word leads to part of an event six months in the future, a line to happenings of the previous night.

Characters appear and fade away, are seen through each other, through another moment in time. Fragments of the â??past’ and â??future’ intrude into the â??present’, tying together what in life had at times been hidden or unclear to Hamlet. Although he is just an observer at times, he also is drawn back into and re-experiences the most critical moments of his life.

Bottom line, this is an experiment in clarification and form, intended for performance by American actors on American stages for American audiences, so that they can clearly understand every word spoken and also can have a non-linear stage experience. Ultimately, this script is destined for performance before live American audiences.

The script has been in development over a period of forty years, so a considerable amount of thought has been devoted to every word, every sentence, every speech, every scene, as well as the arrangements of words, lines and scenes. The 2,500 word Introduction expands on this entire process and hopefully makes clear the writer’s intent.

Myrtle Beach: ~ The sound of the waves is a hushed, lullaby of secrets.

by Johnny Goldsmith

MYRTLE BEACH (over 22 creative and entertaining selections in this book)

~ The sound of the waves is a hushed, lullaby of secrets.

yet easy to understand? It only takes a few minutes to read one of these selections. Interesting topics and a poetic point of view will encourage you to respond

and share your thoughts with others. Begin the Journey! Make Your Own Fun!


Azaleas are in bloom along with holly and magnolia. Their colours fill in

where there are no sightseers. The beach has been turned into a ‘Grand Strand’

of empty shops and vacant condos. A certain Carolina style is required to stay

in touch with ‘Dolly’ and ‘Jimmy’ along the Redneck Riviera.


After nearly 200 years of slavery the tide still flows up the Ashely and the Cooper.

The market now sells sweet grass baskets made by the descendents from Ghana and Nigeria. The golden era is praised in the pamphlets as being representative of southern grace and civility. The African-American museum is not included on the tour.

Excerpt from: THE WAVES ARE LOUD

Along Ocean Boulevard the waves are blocked out by amusement parks

and souvenir ghettos. Their royal roar is never heard in the oyster bars

or private theatres. The foam from the water’s repetition is washed up like gangs

of prisoners. Only we are free to sail and travel, to transcend and prevail

against all barriers. The sound of the waves is a hushed, lullaby of secrets.


The Draytons are considered respectable landowners. When the grandson dies

his ashes are buried in the trunk of a tree that had been planted by his grandfather.

The shacks of the African slaves are kept on display as part of their grand history.

In this world of beauty and power, no blacks ride the bus to Magnolia Gardens.

My reflection in the store windows told the story.

Life has been a detour of diversions and disappointments. But today, it felt like

I was just scuffing my cowboy boots on the pavement for the first time.

Excerpt from: ARCADE FIRE

The pain of white light was from an alien ship on a death mission. It cut into pale dresses and grey suits. There was no colour. The music tore off scabs and bled

ear lobes. Then, without warning, seven or eight layers dropped to the stage floor.

The silence was an uproar.

Excerpt from: Collingwood Escarpment

The mornings are always different. Yesterday, a red sky hung over the escarpment.

The hills were set on fire by flowing gowns of yellow and crimson.

Today, the escarpment is dressed in a blue surge of â??raincoat.’

The frayed belt was missing. From the top, an upturned collar

cast dark shadows towards empty loops of fog and foam, â??grain tower.’


In the early days, during the middle of summer and late in winter, I had stumbled across those rails and slide along those stones, with a girl by my side. Your picture was in mind.

I don’t think that anyone else has ever came back to claim the love sickness.

I’ve done it a dozen times.


Out on the beach the gulls warm up near a sand bar. It appears that they are floating

in shimmering water, but in the morning light it is obvious they are standing on crumbling castles. The sun creates a juxtaposition of viewpoints.

Some of the titles included in LET’S GO THERE 1 are:

A Cautionary Tale, A Neon Display Of Cheap Bibles, A Veteran’s Holiday, A Trusted Survivor, Across The Pool, Arcade Fire, Around The Gym, At 5:15, Because I Never Started, Climbing Ropes And Wires, Collingwood Escarpment, Do The Opposite, Get Out Of The Way, Your Picture Was In Mind, I Can’t Find A Good Book To Read, I Died With A Smile, I Like To See The Leafs Lose, I Shovel Snow, I Write In A Yeats Style.

Shadows of footsteps

by William Kofoed

I hope at least some people will read and enjoy them.

I do not know why most poets write poetry but I know why I

do so. I write because a thought gets in my head and bounces

around till I write it down.

You could say that I don’t try to write but that I am

forced to write.

Now I do try to write “good” poetry that people will enjoy

reading, but I don’t try to write poems for people to read.

Most people find that they like some of my poems and hate

others of them.

Some people want to tell me how to rewrite my poems or how

I can write better poems.

Many people don’t understand my poems.

Sometimes I don’t know if I understand my poems.

Some of my poems aren’t here.

I hope that if you read my poems you will find some that

you enjoy reading.

My Name is Marnie

by Tracy L Carbone

After the brutal, senseless murder of her husband, Marnie Clifford tries to pull the threads of her out-of-control life back together. She flees from her painful past and looks to start a new life in a small, ramshackle but affordable cottage in a remote idyllic New England town, in hopes of finishing out her pregnancy in peace. But something isn’t quite right with her new home- not with the cottage itself and its vague familiarity; not with her new neighbor, a disheveled wild-eyed man with a limp and questionable motives; and certainly not with her unsettling visitorâ?¦a silent, restless, and very dead little girl. As the spectre’s visits become more and more frequent, Marnie begins to unearth the horrible secret of the cottage. A secret better left buried deepâ?¦


“As enthralling a spectral mystery as anything written by Jennifer McMahon, with My Name is Marnie not only has Tracy Carbone risen to the top of my writers-to-watch list, she has also ensured I will never look at dolls or apples the same way again. This one quite literally had me double-checking the doors and windows before bed, and I’m still not quite recovered. A well-written and unsettling piece of work that gets my highest recommendation.”

– Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning

author of The Turtle Boy, Kin, and Jack & Jill.

The Cabin on Grey Lake

by Robert Dean Hall

The burning desire to get away from it all will soon become the desperate need to escapeâ?¦

Randy and Nicole Henderson would both admit their marriage has been anything but a bed of roses. Randy is obsessive-compulsive and Nicole has problems with fidelity, but until now, they’ve never been able to go their own separate ways.

Wanting to give their three daughters a final quiet family weekend before they file for divorce, The Hendersons set out for their vacation home on the shores of an idyllic lake in the Appalachian Mountains. However, the weekend is anything but peaceful.

Their oldest daughter winds up in the emergency room, then their middle daughter has a strange nightmare. The final straw comes when Nicole has her own nightmare and wakes to find evidence the youngest daughter has been roaming in the forest during the night, even though there is no plausible explanation for how she got outside.

Upon returning home, it dawns on Randy that strange things have been happening at the cabin since he began visiting there with his parents and brother as a child. The latest weekend, bad as it was, only hints at the climax that will reveal why the place is called Grey Lake.

Bite Size: A Short Story

by John D. Harvey

Crunch is always hungry. A massive and mean homeless man, Crunch wanders the streets trying to survive while accumulating a hatred for all those around him.

While it has always been easy for him to victimize the weakest of the street dwellers, the normal folk like you and me have always been beyond his grasp. Until one day he finds a way to punish everyone who deserves his wrath ranging from the poorest to the most privileged.

Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that the way found him … and he has perhaps bitten off more than even he can chew.

The Wind’s Dark Moan

by David Adams

Most skeptics, rationalists, atheists and freethinkers do not believe because the various God-claims of the world, made by dusty books dragged out of the Middle East, because they have not met the burden of proof.

But what if someone found a book that contained within true scientific foreknowledge? Something that was not just evolutionary with regard to our knowledge of history and archaeology, but revolutionary? Something that presented evidence — hard evidence — that someone, somewhere, knew how the future was going to happen before it happened?

What if that book foretold the dusk of humanity, the end of our light?

A 3,000 word short story.

There are so many things worse than death. Let’s explore some, shall we?

Dive into this confused mish-mash of stories set in Hugh Howey’s world of I, Zombie. Enjoy the comedic, the horrific, the stupid and the insightful.

Still not fit for human consumption.

Just A Minor Perspective: Through The Eyes of a Minor League Rookie

by Eric Pettis

The minor leagues are largely misunderstood, more well known for the players who have skipped through their ranks than the ones who reside in them. They’re a mysterious land of hotels, bus rides, and clubhouses. Upon being drafted out of UC Irvine by the Phillies, right-handed pitcher Eric Pettis didn’t quite know what he was getting himself into.

Just A Minor Perspective allows readers to jump into Eric’s mind and experience the journey along with him. The narrative resembles stream-of-consciousness as he describes the good, the bad, and the ugly of the minor leagues as it hits him square in the face for the first time.

From his first day in Philadelphia…

“I tried to open the door in a manner that would exude confidence in the off chance that my new teammate was an expert on body language and would be analyzing my entry.”

To the heat of the battle…

“As I hopped over the foul line I could feel my body try to rev itself up. It was pleading with me to get something going. It knew how significant this was… As hard as my body tried, it couldn’t muster anything. I tried again and again to turn the key, but my engine just wouldn’t start.”

Eric gives an honest, pointed, and often humorous account of what he feels when he’s feeling it. Just A Minor Perspective is a gripping story of one man’s attempt to find his place in a new world; a scramble to conquer the first rung of the professional baseball ladder.

An Airship Named Desire

by Katherine McIntyre

Airships, sky-pirates, smugglers and soldiers… An Airship Named Desire is an action-filled steampunk adventure.

Ever since their last botched smuggling job, First Mate Bea and the crew of her airship can barely afford fuel, let alone a barrel of grog. So, when a gentleman from Old Germany offers them a fortune to steal a locked box from a British merchant airship, they jump at the opportunity. Somehow, though, their employer forgot to mention the box’s military escort, and the Morlock mercenaries who would kill to get their hands on it. Oh, and that if made public, the contents could engulf Europe in another devastating war.

Stealing the box was the easy part. Now, with a target on their back, and some of the toughest characters in the sky after them, they have to find a way to survive. If the crew of the Desire don’t polish their pistols and prepare for a hell of a fight, they’ll end up worse than grounded. After all, everyone from the Brits to the Morlocks will kill for the contents of that box, and no one survives an airship crash.

Skin (The Ark Trilogy Book 1)

by Jesse Daro

Unbeknownst to most of human kind, Chimera Enterprises has resurrected a shapeshifting alien race that sank with the lost continent of Lemuria eons ago: the werekin, born with both a human and an animal skin, able to shift between the two at will. Seventeen-year-old Seth Michael Sullivan, a werejaguar, has grown up in the Underground, hiding from the hunters that capture and enslave werekin for Chimera Enterprises. After witnessing the murder of his guardian Naomi, Seth arrives in Fairfax, Indiana, on a snowy New Year’s Eve, a rare breed on the run. As he reconnects with the mother and sister who know nothing of his true identity, Seth discovers he is a key piece in Chimera’s plot to conquer humankind by securing the power of the werekin Totems – and uncovers a secret in his own past that could decide the fate of his kindred.

Top-secret scientific experiments, ancient alien technology, a powerful shadow organization inside the United States military – Seth soon finds himself at the center of a brewing interspecies war. Can he trust his own flesh and blood? Will he choose to stand with humankind or with his werekin kindred – especially when the best part of being human may be Marshall Townsend, the boy next door?

The first championship match of the season looms large and lethal in The Reapers’ immediate future, as do their most hated opponents.

For Xenia Montelongo the most important match of the year is her first leading the team as their captain. For Hamza and Hala Saleed, after being thrust into the global spotlight as The Reapers’ new starting slingers and after a shocking incident that has gone viral, it’s their first time standing the deadway in mortal combat.

But The Reapers are facing even greater challenges behind the scenes. Harboring the most wanted criminal in the history of Sling City and with the Games Authority and its shock cop minions plotting to end their season early, Xenia will have to choose whether or not to challenge a genocidal global conspiracy brewing outside the arena.

If she even survives to make that choice.

WHERE GODS CANNOT SEE is the fourth volume in the ongoing SLINGERS SAGA by Matt Wallace, the award-winning author of THE FAILED CITIES.

WARNING: Contains intense violence, futurism, and sexual situations.


by Jonathan Meyer

The man that would call himself Al Clark woke up not knowing where he was. Even worse, he did not know who he was. His journey to discover his identity and where it was that he found himself, leads him to marvels he didn’t know existed, and places only found in a science fiction book. During his quest he finds man-eating monsters, aliens, and robots, on a world not his own. He dreams of green valleys, idyllic villages, friends that truly care, and finds them all in his adventure of a lifetimeâ??at least the lifetime he remembers.

The Lingo Of Ares

by Julian Massaglia


The American General, Dante Corvigni, has been sent to Italy with one of the last standing human armies from the West to crush an invading force and win â??The War for Democracy’. After Dante completes his orders, something mysterious happens that changes his perspective on the entire universe and his place within it, that causes him to renounce his former loyalties to the United Nations and go rogue. By doing so, he not only gains the ire of his former country (which is now run by the Occuparty), he also gains the attention of a ruthless and dangerous shadow order of Illuminati demons that will stop at nothing through spiritual warfare, to wipe out Dante and his legacy from existence. Provocative and absurd, aggressive and unforgiving, cerebral and violent, this is a tale not for the faint of heart – or mind, this is a modern epic on the scale of the classics of one man versus the entire planet. A tale about a man who will carve out a bloodbath in his wake as he presses on relentlessly, to find meaning, the truth, and honor, in a world that seems so devoid of it at times.

April’s Crime: A Short Story

by Linda Sparks

It’s 2093 and April is living in a world where only a few people are allowed to survive. There is no space for a large human population, there is hardly any land and the extreme heat of the sun makes life almost uninhabitable. In order to control population, the state, which is all that is left of the world, submits school leavers to a series of stringent tests. If you pass, you live. If you fail, you are exterminated. April, through no fault of her own finds herself on the wrong side of the law. She eventually turns to Allen, her forbidden boyfriend, for help. But what can he possibly do when survival of the fittest has become a rule of being?

Jesus Was a Time Traveler (WATT Book 1)

by D.J. Gelner

Time travel. Every sober scientist thinks it’s utterly impossible.

Of course, Phineas Templeton is no sober scientist in any sense of the word. A quirky English chap with a taste for fine scotch, Dr. Templeton builds a time machine at the behest of his mysterious Benefactor. His mission? To meet Jesus Christ Himself, and garner all of the fame, recognition, and accolades that writing an epic time travelogue would bring.

Unfortunately for Finny, Jesus is actually a fellow time traveler, a hippie named Trent from Colorado. While He explains that the past is fixed and immutable (“What happened, like, HAPPENED, manâ?¦”), Dr. Templeton realizes that he’s made a horrible oversight in his calculations, and can’t return to his own time period.

The only way home is to follow a list of very specific instructions his Benefactor has hidden on the time machine, which sends him on a madcap, at times hilarious voyage from watching his hero, Sir Isaac Newton, be berated by a high school physics teacher, to hunting dinosaurs, to rescuing two colorful American soldiers and fighting Nazis hellbent on his destruction.

All the while, Phineas is left to question his Benefactor’s true intentions. Just who is the shadowy person pulling the strings of a conspiracy thousands of years in the making? And why is Finny so key to their machinations?

A novel that’s been called “equal parts â??The Da Vinci Code’ and â??Back to the Future,’” “Jesus Was a Time Traveler” is a book that will please fans of Dan Brown and Douglas Adams alike with quirky humor, thought-provoking puzzles, cryptic clues, and a finicky universe that would like nothing more than to keep things as they are.

HERE’S WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING (In addition to the great reviews on Amazon below!):

“A thoroughly enjoyable novel: equal parts ‘Da Vinci Code’ & ‘Back to the Future’ make it a novel you don’t want to put down! I thoroughly enjoyed this philosophical–and funny–adventure through the centuries!” -Another Merchant Site

“I found the book engrossing. The trip through history and our future was fun to take with the Doc!!” -Another Merchant Site

“it made me want to keep turning the page to see what would happen next. It was engaging and I thought the plot was creative and interesting.” -Goodreads

Bipolar Disorder: a student’s guide

by Dr. Jerry Kennard

In this subject guide, Dr. Kennard provides a concise and informal introduction to Bipolar Disorder. The Guide is a development from previous work entitled, ‘Bipolar Disorder: a short introductory guide’, aimed primarily at those newly diagnosed with the disorder, their friends and relatives.

The intention then, as now, is to provide a concise easy-to-read introduction for people who want something more than a leaflet or a webpage, but less than a formal textbook. In this student’s guide, more detail is provided as to the description, diagnostic criteria and explanations for bipolar disorder.

There was a time when the study of mental health was confined largely to students of psychology, medicine or nursing, or those involved in social care or health-related occupations. Today the message is finally filtering through that mental illness is extremely common and is not something to be feared or hidden away.

Many students from non-health backgrounds are now interested all aspects of the human condition. Perhaps because of a term paper, examination or project, they are looking for a suitable way in to some of these potentially difficult and confusing topics. This Guide provides sufficient detail to answer your most pressing questions about bipolar disorder, its diagnosis, characteristics and treatments. For students, it provides a general introduction in its own right, or a suitable platform from which to take their investigation to deeper levels.

Dr. Jerry Kennard is an author, psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. He is a former healthcare professional and academic who now writes regular Expert blogs for HealthCentral.com on a variety of mental health issues.

The Not So Secret Emails Of Coco Pinchard: A Funny, Feel-Good Romantic Comedy

But now her first novel is published, husband Daniel has greyed nicely into a silver fox, and son Rosencrantz is all grown up. Shouldn’t it be time to enjoy life?

That is, until the annual family Christmas when her hideous mother-in-law Ethel comes to stay, and Coco opens her gift from Daniel. It’s not the jewellery she chose, but an iPhone. This marks the start of Daniel’s mid-life crisis and Coco catches him in bed with a younger woman.

The iPhone becomes a confessional of sorts, through emails to her friends Chris, an ageing trustafarian and Marika a slightly alcoholic schoolteacher. As Coco’s life unravels, she documents her seemingly endless (and often entertaining!) run of bad luck.

Then she meets the hunky Adam and she’s back in the world of dating as a single forty-something. Read the emails that tell the hilarious tale of Coco picking up the pieces, in this fun, feel good Romantic Comedy. The first book in the smash-hit Coco Pinchard series!

Unlaced (Undone by Love Book 1)

by Kristina Cook

From nationally bestselling author Kristina Cook comes an award-winning historical romance set in Regency England–first time in digital!

All Lucy Abbington wants is to get through her first London season without losing sight of her true ambitionâ??gaining some informal training in veterinary arts so that she can retire peacefully to the countryside with her beloved horses. Instead, she’s caught up in a whirlwind of balls, marriage proposals, and ton intrigues. Worse, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to her sponsors’ maddening neighbor, Henry Ashton, the Marquess of Mandeville. The handsome, arrogant, sometimes infuriating Mandeville stokes a passionate fire within her that won’t be denied, no matter the consequence.

Deep, emotional scars secretly plague Henry, Lord Mandeville. As a result, he’s avoided romantic entanglements at all costs. Only, now he needs a wifeâ??someone from a wealthy, powerful family to further his political aspirations. Instead, he finds himself all but obsessed with the beautiful but unconventional Lucy Abbingtonâ??a woman whose passions and wit stir desires he’d rather ignore. And yetâ?¦she might just be the one woman who can heal his wounded heart.

Lucy and Henry’s heads say no, but their hearts say yes. Will they find themselves undone by love?

The Consultant: An Adult Contemporary Romance (WLUV Book 1)

by Jayne Blue

The Consultant – Passion is always the top story at WLUV.

Jayne Blue introduces you to WLUV, the television station with nothing going for it but hot on-air talent.

THE CONSULTANT is an adult contemporary romance that leads off the WLUV saga.

Macy Green arrives at WLUV after a spectacular scandal.

Now Macy has been bumped back down to local news, this time as THE CONSULTANT. It’s Macy’s job to fix loser television stations, that’s where WLUV comes in.

WLUV’s one last chance before Wes sells it for parts is Macy Green. Macy Green’s one last chance at happiness is an ill-advised romance with a billionaire, Wes Thompson, if she can stop fighting with him long enough to realize it.

A Perfect Mess (A Perfect Secret Book 1)

by Zoe Dawson

I know what you did last summer.

Aubree Walker, the perfect girl most likely to succeed, is sure there’s only one person who knows what she did.

Booker Outlaw, one of the three Outlaw brothers–all identical, all gorgeous, all from the wrong side of the tracks, and all pure bad boys. He was always the unpredictable one, the one who would be brash enough to make it big self-publishing horror novels on the internet. He promised never to tell, but everyone knows you can never trust an Outlaw.

Then a year later, in the middle of the night, she receives a phone call at Tulane. Her aunt, who took her in after her mother’s death, is in a coma under suspicious circumstances. Now she has to face that one person who knows all about what she did that summer–sexy Booker.

Returning to Hope Parish to be with her aunt, stirs up all those ugly memories. When Aubree starts getting threats, she can’t help but wonder if what she did last summer was tied to her aunt’s “accident.” Afraid, she turns to the only person who knows the truth and Booker doesn’t hesitate to offer his broad shoulder for her to lean on. But Booker has a secret of his own that could crush their fledgling relationship.

As the hot, sultry summer days move on, she finds that even a perfectly smart girl can lose her heart to a perfectly bad boy. What is she going to do when someone starts asking questions Aubree doesn’t want to answer? She’s knee deep into a terribly dangerous, wholly life changing, who-can-she-really-depend-on perfect mess.

by Bec McMaster

Friends, partners, and professionals. So just why is this case coming between them?

In a Victorian London ruled by the blood-drinking elite, Perry Lowell is a logical and accomplished Nighthawk: a rogue blue blood who tracks murderers and thieves for the Guild. So when she and her charming-but-reckless partner, Garrett, are charged with finding a missing theatre starlet, it should be a simple solve.

But with an entire theatre of suspects, including a flirtatious understudy and whispers of a Clockwork Menace haunting the place, tension is brewing between the pair of them. Can they come together to solve the case – or will it be too late, when the murderer turns his gaze on Perry herself?

Warning: This is not a complete HEA. It’s a pre-romance novella featuring the couple who will find their HEA in Forged By Desire (available Sept 2014). Heads will butt, tempers will flare – and perhaps one of them might come to realise just what the other truly means to them?
