A not-ready-for-Disney fairy tale.

Princess Susannah’s discovery that she can work fairy magic unlocks the door to a delicious secret: Beneath the castle where she and her twelve sisters live, there’s an enchanted palace that has an edge over the Middle Kingdoms. It’s chock full of princes who just love to dance. In a world where the nobility have been fairy-cursed to bear no more male children, it’s a secret they enjoy to the fullest.

But without male heirs, the human lands are on the verge of anarchy. The King and Queen hire Jon Tom, a detective, to find out where their daughters are disappearing to every night. Susannah finds herself wanting to tell Jon Tom all her secrets–and give him her heart.

But if Susannah’s secrets go public, her parents won’t be happy. Worse, the fairies won’t be happy. And the enchanted princes will be in danger.

Cover art by Scott Carpenter

Kyra Adams feels like she is living someone else’s life. The problem is, she’s right…

At thirty-six, Kyra has a workaholic husband, an ailing mother, a radiant daughter, and a dream home in the heart of suburbia. Her days are filled with saccharine ‘Mommy and Me’ play dates, but her nights are haunted by terrifying dreams of a girl with no reflection.

When her daughter becomes lost in a department store, Kyra’s dream intrudes on her waking state, and a threatening voice in her head challenges, “If you lost her, who would you be?”

Terrified by the realization that she is disappearing into the footnotes of other people’s lives, and yearning for a full and genuine life of her own, Kyra seeks solace at a writer’s retreat in rural Vermont. What she expects are answers. But what she finds is a deeply troubled stranger with a tragic past, and a powerful secret that pierces into the heart of her family, testing the limits of forgiveness.

Are some secrets better left untold? Kyra is about to find out.

Length: Category
Price: 4.50 Get it Now for 4.05
Cover art by Vanessa Hawthorne

Gold Rush dreams don’t come cheap–or without danger.

Fleeing the cheerless prospect of marriage to a man she despises, Sarah Delany sails into the heady excitement of Gold Rush San Francisco. She has high hopes for a new life. Romance is the last thing on her mind. Especially with a rude ruffian of a gold miner who rescues her from being crushed by a wayward wagon.

John Lawton arrives that very same day, brushing the grime of more than a year’s work in the mining camps off his rumpled clothes. He’s got a grim-willed resolve to turn a pocketful of gold into a fortune, and no “helpless female” is going to interfere with his plans. Not even when fate literally throws one into his path.

After these shaky first impressions they go their separate ways, but chance throws them together again and again until they put their prickly beginning behind them and admit their attraction is more than a passing fancy.

This vibrant young city is a stage set not only for romance, but for danger, which comes in the form of Sarah’s jilted, vengeful fiancé. She and John must sift through a mountain of lies, deceit, and a brush with death if they hope to find the ultimate treasure–in each other’s arms.

Cover art by Scott Carpenter

Sometimes getting to heaven requires a trip through hell.

Twelve years ago, it looked like Del Prescott had it all. The wealthy family, the car, the looks and charm, and the perfect boyfriend. Then, mysteriously, she disappeared to “study abroad.” Now she’s back, and it’s not merely to attend a high school reunion. She’s here to face her demons–and Blake, the man she has never stopped loving.

Blake Mitchell is a changed man, thanks to surviving twelve long years of difficulties that began after Del dropped out of his life. Now she’s back, and she’s nothing like the polished, stylish world traveler he imagined she’d be. There’s a darkness about her, and a grim expression in her eyes that says she’s prepared for fight or flight.

Blake’s concern for her breaks down the walls Del has built around her heart and she finally begins to heal from the abuse she suffered at the hands of her own family. But the betrayal goes deeper than either of them ever imagined–and it’s about to come back to haunt them.

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language and violence.
