Genre: Contemporary Romance
ISBN: 978-1-60504-107-0
Length: 208 Pages
Price: 11.50
Cover art by Scott Carpenter

It was nothing personal, just a business arrangement.

Ryan McKay is a multi-millionaire with a problem. He needs a bride to fulfill the terms of his grandfather’s will. Unfortunately, the one he chose just bailed on him and he’s hours away from losing his company. Enter Faith Lewis –his demure, devoted assistant. Ryan convinces Faith to step in and marry him, assuring her their marriage is merely a business deal. Ryan is certain he can keep this strictly impersonal. After all, he’s the product of a loveless marriage and for years has sealed his own heart in an icy stone. Despite Faith’s warmth, compassion and allure, he’s convinced he’s immune to her charms.

Faith will do anything for her boss, but — marry him? The shy virgin sees herself as plain and unattractive, a product of a bitter mother who drummed into her head that she wasn’t worthy of a man’s love. But she agrees to help Ryan fulfill the terms of his grandfather’s will, hoping she doesn’t lose her heart to him in the process.

But love rarely listens to logic, and what follows is anything but business.

This book has been previously distributed as a free book in Jaci’s newsletter and has been revised from its original release.

Book III of the Legends of Mynos series.

After the death of his best friend, Sir Ethan travels to Marynville to deliver the sad news to his friend’s sister, and to fulfill his promise to protect her. When he meets the beautiful Meghan, she provokes him to far more than friendship.

But then they hear rumors of an evil talisman, and Ethan must set his feelings aside in order to protect his country, Lyndaria, from the threat of the Dragon’s Flame.

The Dragon’s Flame, a glittering ruby made from the body of an evil red dragon, twists the minds of all who touch it. Even the benevolent golden dragon Mynos, commanded by the king to find and destroy it, cannot withstand its malignant power.

Maddened by the evil gem, Mynos threatens to annihilate Lyndaria. Worse, Meghan has accidentally touched and bonded with another crystal, the Crystal of Mynos, and only with a powerful magic spell can she withstand and wield its power against the Dragon’s Flame.

With Meghan’s life hanging in the balance, can Ethan find a way to break the foul enchantment before Mynos destroys them all?

He knows exactly who sent the warning and he knows she’s being watched by her b***** of an ex.

Book 1 of the Ballot’s Keep series.

After his lover is executed for the simple crime of being a commoner, Xeras, a young nobleman of Tirrin, turns his back on his life of privilege and flees into the wilderness.

Still grieving, and angry about the predicament into which he’s been forced, Xeras accepts an opportunity to go after the dragons who have been making life difficult for the people of the local towns.

But there is sinister magic behind the machinations of the dragons, magic that emanates from Xeras’s distant home island of Tirrin. Magic that puts the lives of both Carly and the tiny infant dragon in danger. Xeras finds that he can’t turn his back on either of them.

For their sake he must face down his own countrymen and somehow thwart the Tirrin mages’ evil plans.
