Event planner Kate Sweet is famous for creating the perfect happily-ever-after moment for her clients’ dream weddings. So how is it that her best friend has roped her into planning a bestselling horror writer’s book launch extravaganza? But the second Kate meets—or rather, accidentally maims—the drop-dead-hot Drake Matthews, her well-ordered life quickly transforms into an absolute nightmare.
Drake Matthews is tired of the spotlight and tired of his reputation as the Knight of Nightmares. He's really a nice guy! But he’s not prepared for Kate, a fearless agent of chaos in steel-tipped stilettos, or for that sweet sting of attraction he feels for her. She’s inspiring him to take his writing in a whole new direction—one that no one expects. Because now Kate and Drake are changing up the rules, and this plot twist might just surprise everyone . . . including themselves.

When sparks fly, their friendship
might go up in flames...
As a successful book publicist, Imani Lewis works night and day to promote her authors’ works. It’s her dream job, but she’s become a total workaholic. So when her grandmother invites her to stay for the summer as she recovers from surgery, Imani happily agrees. But being back in the same small town as her one-night stand from a year ago may not be quite the relaxing break she envisioned…
Zander Matthews wakes up every day determined to enjoy the present because he knows from his time in the Marines that tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. But he’s never gotten over the beautiful woman who blew through town, then disappeared. And he doesn’t want to be hurt again. So they agree to a deal: he’ll help Imani fix up her grandmother’s house as long as they stay firmly in the friend zone.
Whether it’s repairing tiles in his ceramics studio, dodging nosy neighbors, or soothing the most obnoxious parrot ever, Zander never fails to make her laugh. And soon their friendly banter is turning ever flirtier. But since Imani’s stay is temporary and Zander can’t be tied to anything beyond the most tenuous plans, will she be able to handle it when things get all fired up?

Despite The Ghosts
For spirit medium and parapsychology professor Nola Richards, love is as dead as the ghosts she communicates with. Then one spirit's cryptic message on her shower door forces her out of the paranormal and into the arms of his hot bachelor brother business tycoon and complete skeptic Parker Sebastian.
As if dealing with funeral arrangements, an ugly internal audit and his greedy step-family weren't enough, Parker's newest problem arrives in a gorgeous, if eccentric, package. After hearing Nola's message from beyond, Parker knows two things: he wants her and she's a con artist somehow responsible for his brother's death.
To help this restless ghost, Nola must overcome Parker's disbelief. Although sexual energy crackles between them, she knows corporation and meditation don't mix. It'll take more than spirit interference and otherworldly signs to make their romance work, Despite the Ghosts.
Despite The Fangs
Workaholic werewolves have such awesome perks. Just ask Aribella Lupari, whose hectic schedule tracking missing people in the snowy Adirondacks allows her benefits humans can't appreciate--wolves never return unopened wedding gifts, never gain weight from late night doughnut binges, and never worry over their encroaching Unibrow. For Ari, walking upright is overrated.
Then she tracks a hiker whose delectable scent calls to both halves of her werewolf self. Not only does Mason Gray look as good as he smells, he may be the only man who can love the beauty behind the beast. Ari should know better than to trust a human, especially after Mason blackmails her into tracking his kidnapped son. But her attraction for the mysterious single father has Ari ignoring her animal instincts.
Can the big, bad wolf live happily ever after, Despite the Fangs?
Any Witch Way
Graduate student Lily Andrews resigned herself to a life of perpetual virginity. With her recent twisted appetites and weird fugues hospitalizing every would-be boyfriend, it's no wonder she uses her coursework as an excuse not to date. Then, she meets a witch. Joshua enters Lily's life to complete penance for a deadly spell cast centuries ago.
Joshua must counter Lily's demon-wrought fugues with his own Wiccan magick, or lose her forever. As the pivotal Wiccan holiday, Samhain, approaches, time is running out. Together, they must battle an ancient dark force, fighting for their lives and their new-found love...Any Witch Way they can.
Werewolf Aribella Lupari-Gray is on her long-awaited honeymoon. Or at least, that was the plan. When she and Mason land in Ireland just before Christmas, their dream holiday turns into a nightmare: the pack’s werewolf children have all vanished. To top it off, the werewolf king—who was supposed to sanctify Ari’s marriage to a human—is away searching for the missing pups and may not return in time to grant his official blessing, jeopardizing her family’s future status within the pack.
If things don’t change fast, there may not even be a marriage to bless. Ari’s desire to help puts her life—and her relationship with Mason—in jeopardy.
With Mason gone, presumably back to the States and Christmas on the doorstep, Ari sets out on one final mission to find the lost pups. Her life and the pack's young in the balance, will Ari be able to perform a holiday miracle or will she die trying?
A collection of short, scary stories, Dark Dreams is the perfect bedtime companion. Unless you want to sleep. This compact, trilogy of tales promises no happy endings. Not by a long shot. The stories are creepy. Twisted. And more than a little disturbing.
It begins with "The Pit" where a little girl and her cousin disobey the rules and explore the deep cavern beneath the house and discover...something better left to the dark. Then, in "Thin Man," you experience a suburban mom's nightmare come to life. Finally, you'll never see a buck the same way again in this cautionary tale of what happens when man disrespects nature in "A Deer in the Headlights."
