"Funny and very, very sexy, with a terrific ending that will satisfy everyone!"
--Cammie McGovern, author of Neighborhood Watch and Art of Seeing
Meet Chase and Mike, a couple of beautiful messes, but hardly strangers.
Chase Evans is hot, young, and rich, a high-profile attorney with a downtown penthouse and a loyal bff, Billy, who still carries a torch for him years after their law school fling.
Together Chase and Billy rule the night, cruising the streets of Boys Town in Chase's convertible-du-jour, hitting the posh west side for $$$$ dinner and drinks with the crew, rolling on E with the Party Boys, dancing to the pulsing beat and flashing strobes and streaming lasers until sunrise.
When the vibe is right and the boys are thirsty, Chase leaves Billy behind, picks a winner, takes him home, and shows him the view from the top. They're just a good time, these boys; they never mean a thing to him-until one hot, sweaty night, when one of them does. That's when the trouble ...
Everly is lying to me about my sister's death. I don't know what she's hiding, but I've made it my mission to break her down until I know every last detail. Our broken pieces will match, and she'll know the soul-crushing agony I feel when I look at her. I hate that I want her. Unequivocally, the need I feel for her is stronger than I'll ever be. If she thinks she isn't still mine, she's lying to herself, too.
She used to look at me like I was everything to her.
She'll look at me that way again.
I can promise you that.
My best friend is dead, and I can't tell anyone her secret. Patrick thinks I'm protecting myself. But really, I'm protecting him. He's in pain, and knowing I'm the reason is utter torture. The truth will cut him far deeper than losing whatever it is we had. I'll give him what he needs, even if it means he'll hate me forever.
He wants to break me.
He's too late.
My world shattered the day I chose to lie to him.
Includes a happily ever after, but main ...

Ariana isn't looking forward to this weekend. She can hardly keep Carvi off her with her boyfriend Quil around, and Quil has been banned from the summit, meaning she's going to spend the entire time fending off the not so unwanted advances, on top of her actual job of watching out for sabotage and attacks on the summit.
After zombie and passion spells wreak havoc on the opening party of the summit, Ariana realizes she's in way over her head, and that's before Carvi introduces her to the astral plane and the expansive world of magic she can have access to.

I would know; I'm an intern on Capitol Hill.

I fall for Luke, an underground-boxer-turned-entrepreneur.

He's jaded, closed-off, and impossible to read.

Susan's reaction is more profound... more sinister.

There was never any question that two Nephite warriors would go into enemy lands to free their brother from a Lamanite prison.
But bringing their brother's wife on the arduous journey was probably not Jashon's best idea. They could move so much faster without Keturah, and her beauty is more than a little distracting. Lamech isn't faring any better than his brother. He's used to protecting himself in enemy lands, but protecting his captain's pretty sister from a Lamanite spy with designs on her heart is a complication he has no training for.
Watching sweet Sarai fall in love with her brooding watchdog is small consolation for Salome when her own heart is breaking. Meeting Jashon and his kinsmen near the River Sidon was a stroke of luck, but she only hopes Jashon can do what he promises and bring her son back safely.
As the brothers travel deeper into the ancient land of their fathers, a land where the right path is not always clear, they will find that their brother was not the ...
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson:The Early AdventuresThere is a persistent and incorrect idea, reinforced by countless film misrepresentations, that Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were always staid and dull British chaps of middle years (or older), with Holmes a spry, cranky, and impatient eccentric, and Watson a white-haired and portly Boobus Brittanicus, a la Nigel Bruce. Students of the true and Canonical Sherlock Holmes know this to be a falsehood. When we first meet them on January 1st, 1881, Holmes is still 26 years old (although he will turn 27 in just a few days), and Watson, already a wounded war veteran, is only 28. During the three year period between early 1881 and late 1883, through all of the early adventures which cemented their lifelong friendship, Holmes was still in his twenties, with Watson just a little over a year older. This idea is difficult for many to accept as they cling to the image of Our Heroes as senior citizens. This volume, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor ...

Preface Melina is the fifth book in the series. Then again, she is technically the 4th, but I decided to split Ahi in two. As of now, you may have noticed the order I take with my books. The Melina story has some magical elements here and there. The dragons only play a bit role in this story. The book focuses on Melina's adventures as a courtesan. She was bought as a slave, by the figurehead of Sassari to play court politics. This book also focuses on the religion of the people of Saturnastra. Most fantasy books tend to avoid the whole God situation. Then again, everyone in this part of the Solar System believes in a God. Godliness was more common during the time when magic was practice in planet Earth. Since magic is common in Saturnastra, the worship of the Gods is also commonplace. I delineate somewhat the theology of the world, and the relationship between the people and the Gods. Aside from the theology, I also established how the slavery system works in Saturnastra. ...

Sparks fly when the wholesome girl next door crosses the path of a sexy, alpha male.
Grace followed the rules. She always played it safe and never put her heart in jeopardy, until the night she met him. She'd never imagined connecting with an alpha male like Ryan. Giving herself to him as he'd cradled her in his arms had come naturally... until she sobered up. He was everything that she'd convinced herself she didn't want. Or was he everything she needed?

They say a man's home is his castle.
And for Stanley Holbrook this was quite literally true; his rural Connecticut home in the town of Waring made as a replica of a medieval castle on the Rhine, complete with turrets and narrow Gothic windows.
'Holbrook's Folly' had been in the family for years and when it passed into Stanley's hands it became a fortress with a purpose - no women allowed.
No women, that is, until a prize-winning photograph of the huge stone house appears in The Friday Review. Then, in one day, life at the castle turns upside down.
A letter appears from San Francisco announcing the arrival of Stanley's crotchety hypochondriac aunt, Winifred Holbrook.
Then another from Paris describing the plight of his beautiful widowed sister-in-law Eve and her infant son.
Then one from a Mrs. Davis in New York, who characterizes herself as 'a rebellious old woman' but an able homemaker.
And finally one with no signature at all, a saucy, intriguing note which promises: ...

NOTE TO READERS: This title was originally published as "Untamed Hunger" by Lee Mae (pen name of A.Hunter), but has since been unpublished.

Trying to socially engineer the world's population is not easy, especially when you discover that a pair of reluctant time travellers keep on getting in the way of your plan.
The problems all started when James Urquhart, science lecturer, living in 2015, was enjoying a walk in the countryside and met Elizabeth Bicester, a Victorian Cambridge graduate, at a cricket match at Hamgreen in 1873.
Of course, he didn't know it was 1873. All he knew was that he'd found a rather attractive woman who looked like she'd fallen straight out of a Tissot painting.
Perhaps if he hadn't left his phone and she hadn't picked it up, the story might have ended there.
But it didn't.
If only Time had stayed where it was, it would have been a lot easier for everyone.
In a quiet rural town, things are changing. Girls are missing, mutilated bodies are discovered. The race is on to save the lives of two girls who vanished in the blink of an eye. Will they be found in time?
It turns personal when one of these girls turns out to be the daughter of Kacey's lifetime friend. Time is running out for young Katie as The Search leads the two detectives in a bi-state investigation which ends up focusing on an off the grid community. Can the answers be found there? Will the girls be found before it's too late?
In the meantime, Katie faces the ultimate sacrifice.

Will this time be different for Sean and Brianna, or will life push them down the same path of disaster? Destiny has never lead them down an easy road.
Travel a path of redemption and second chances. Their storybook love is intense, passionate and funny with one simple truth revealed.
Party girl, Nikki Kraemer is terrified when she wakes up tied to a dirty mattress in a basement that bleeds and breathes death. Her reality grows more terrifying as she battles her addiction at the mercy of her deadly captor.
This is no ordinary day. Issac Burns has a dangerous secret that has eaten away his moral integrity for ten years. This is the day he will confront his inner demon... but Nikki is no ordinary woman. She is certainly not what Isaac expected.
TRIGGER ALERT: This romantic thriller dives into some dark subject matter such as murder, drug addiction and sexual abuse.
Quiet. Shy. Awkward.
I used to be that bright, fun girl everyone wanted to be friends with, before I had to carry this dark secret inside. The secret that no one knows. Now, I'm ruined. Nothing but ashes of the bubbly, young girl I used to be. I've been running from the past for the last four years, but college will be the perfect, fresh start that I need. Like pushing the reset button on my life. Or so I thought until I met Nixon Thorne.
Ex-con. Streetfighter. Monster.
I thought starting at The University of Oregon would be a new beginning for me. Getting a chance at freedom, a taste of the real world again instead of the four cement walls of my prison cell.
That is, until Ella Black stumbled back into my life. She doesn't remember the boy from high school, the one from the wrong side of the tracks -- but I remember her, and I know what she's hiding. My head tells me to stay away from her. She is the reason I went to prison, after all. But it still doesn't ...

Imagine a life without pain.
Sounds perfect, right? No aches and pains, no sore knees, not even one of those sharp headaches from eating ice cream too fast. But here's the twist...
Pain means you're still alive.
It's a lesson Billy Harper will learn.
Billy is trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life when he rents a cottage on the Whitcombs' property in New Canaan. Everything that matters has been stolen from him, leaving his heart numb. He needs a miracle.
And he receives one in the form of the Whitcombs' four-year-old daughter, Carolyn. With her infectious personality and unorthodox outlook, she reminds him what it is to truly live, and his heart begins to thaw.
