A deep and Dark December

"Someone is killing the residents of San Rey."

Graham is the sixth generation Doran to become sheriff of the sleepy central California coastal town. As long as a Doran has been sheriff there's been no crime in San Rey, and Graham is counting on that peace and quiet when he returns home after years as an LAPD detective. But when he's called to the scene of the murder/suicide of an old friend, he sets into motion a series of events that rocks the tiny town, and the only way to catch a killer will be to face his own dark past.

Buried secrets must be told.

Erin December has always felt like an outsider in close-knit San Rey. She comes from a family with unusual psychic abilities, which makes her an outcast in the small town. She's spent her entire life keeping her own ability a secret - until the day she loses control of the visions, and is forced to watch a brutal murder through the killer's eyes. Erin becomes the key witness to the first murder the town has seen in 60 years. But to help find the killer, she's forced to reveal her biggest secret to the last person she thought she could trust - Graham.

To stop a murderer with secrets he's killing to protect.

The December's aren't the only ones in San Rey with psychic abilities. As Graham and Erin's attraction grows so does the killer's need to protect his own secrets, turning his power on Erin and her family. Graham will do anything to protect Erin. But how do you catch a murderer who has the power to kill with his mind?

Dyed and Gone

Hairstylist Azalea March is looking forward to a wild weekend with her friends at a Las Vegas hair show. On the first morning of the show Dhane, a dynamic celebrity of the hair styling world, is found dead. Turns out Azalea’s friend, Vivian, not only knew Dhane but the tale she weaves of how they met is faker than a showgirl’s ah… assets. When Vivian confesses to the murder and is arrested, Azalea knows there’s no way she could have done it and suspects Vivian may be trying to protect someone. But who?

Azalea has to convince Alex, the sexy detective from her past, to help her prove Vivian’s innocence and comb through clues more twisted than a spiral perm. But the truth is stranger than anything found on the Las Vegas Strip and proving Vivian’s innocence turns out to be more difficult than transforming a brunette into a blond.

Someone is stalking Miyuki Price-Jones.

As the host of a very successful home shopping TV show, Mi has become the object of an ex-con’s obsession, requiring the services of ex-Navy SEAL turned bodyguard, Lucas Vega. As the attraction between Lucas and Mi grows, Lucas has a difficult time keeping his feelings for Mi separate from his mission to keep her safe. A mission that is more challenging than anyone could have predicted.

Damaged by their pasts, Lucas and Mi find more in common then they could have imagined and secrets they thought would tear them apart could be the ties that bind them together forever. But with the stalker growing bolder, Lucas and Mi must learn to trust each other or risk losing more than their hearts.

One of them could lose their life.

Fake

I trusted that jerk, Cal Sellers, once and he broke my heart. Took his size fourteen boots and ground it into dust along with my hopes and dreams. Somehow, I was able to trust again, but my ex was not the man I thought he was. He’s violent and brutal and I refuse to let my daughter anywhere near him.

Who should ride in and save the day like the hero/cowboy he thinks he is?

Cal Sellers.

I’m not in a place to say no and Cal knows it. He didn’t get to be a billionaire by not exploiting his enemy’s weaknesses. He, sure as hell, knows mine. To protect my daughter I have to trust Cal.

But he’s got me right where he want’s me—on his arm as his wife.

Urge

I was born with the ability to see the past and the future.

But the visions I’ve been having lately don’t make any sense. They fade in and out at the oddest moments, showing me the strangest images.

I can’t control them anymore. That’s what really scares me.

And then I walk into a room, in a house I’ve never been in and yet have seen, and discover a man I know, holding a gun, the body of a woman at his feet. He insists he didn’t kill her and I believe him.

Because in the vision I saw he was the one who was supposed to die.

He or she has already taken out my dad and my aunt by somehow trapping them within their own minds.

LOST

Selling adult toys on TV's not a bad way to make a living.

Getting strange, stalkery, life-threatening letters from prison inmates? Not so great.

That is until my boss hires Lucas Vega, a former Navy SEAL turned bodyguard to protect me. Lucas makes me want to try every single adult toy my show has ever had in stock.

My stalker has other ideas. He's out of prison and after me.

Now I need more from Lucas than the comfort he offers - I need him to save my life.

Misadventures of Maggie Mae

Wake Up Maggie

Rearranging your cheating boyfriend’s family jewels isn’t a crime—unless your boyfriend is an Arizona state senator and he happens to have a bullet in his chest.

Caught at the scene of the crime, Maggie Mae Castro is the only suspect, and the only one who saw the senator’s real killer—the skank ho he was cheating on her with.

FBI Special Agent Clive Poole has been shadowing the senator’s every move for nearly a year. He’s wanted Maggie from afar and knows she didn’t kill the senator, but with temptation close enough to touch, it’s now his job to protect her from danger.

Maggie finds herself falling for a man who knows everything about her from her juvie record to her shoe size. When she becomes the target of not one, but two killers, keeping Maggie safe is going to be more difficult for Clive than keeping his hands off the hot body he’s been charged to guard.

You're Mine, Maggie

Maggie Mae Castro is sure she’s either losing her mind or she’s fallen in love. She’s not sure which would be worse. Lately she can’t find anything, not her lipstick nor her grandma’s pill case. All she wants is an aspirin and the ability to fire Shasta, the most useless beauty consultant to ever breathe air.

When Shasta winds up dead, crushed by steel shelves full of Shy Kitty cosmetics, Maggie doesn’t believe it’s an accident. Things get even stranger when anonymous gifts arrive, each with the same message: “You’re mine, Maggie.”

FBI Special Agent Clive Poole doesn’t like strange men sending his girlfriend flowers and presents. He especially doesn’t like the possibility that the creep might also be responsible for Shasta’s death. He’s sticking to Maggie day and night. Maggie is his and only his.

Maggie isn’t thrilled about this, especially since their last full-frontal encounter ended with her dropping her reservations and her panties. But Clive will stop at nothing to keep Maggie safe from a madman who would do anything to have her.

Anything.

Find Me Maggie

Tonight is the night that Maggie Mae Castro and her boyfriend, FBI Special Agent Clive Poole, will finally have thoroughly thought-out, all-options-weighed, completely premeditated, totally intentional sex. There’s just one little problem. Maggie’s twin brother, Miguel, is missing and his pregnant girlfriend begs Maggie to find him.

Having seen Miguel’s rap sheet, Clive is sure this is just another stunt designed to get the con artist out of whatever trouble he’s gotten himself into. But as Maggie digs deeper, she discovers that Miguel swindled a very scary man out of a very large sum of money.

Maggie strikes a deal with the man Miguel conned—if she brings Miguel back, her brother lives, if the man’s henchmen get their hands on him first, all bets are off. The race is on across state lines. But the con has gone on too long, and even Maggie’s best finagling might not be enough to convince Miguel to give the money back—or keep the man from killing her twin.

Some Like It Hot

Romance is everywhere even in blockbuster movies like Terminator and Star Wars. Strong romantic plots drove TV shows like Castle, Moonlighting, and Cheers to top ratings. It was the sexual tension that viewers tuned in each week to find out if this would be the episode they finally acted on their attraction or not. Twitter blew up when Sheldon and Amy finally kissed on The Big Bang Theory, then blew up all over again when they consummated their relationship.

Writing romance and sex can be tricky. You’re not writing a how-to manual after all. In this book, you’ll learn how to create sexual tension, how to write sex scenes, and how to plot a romance that will have readers staying up until the wee hours to finish and closing your novel on a happy sigh.

Going Deep Into Deep Point of View

Have you ever read a book that grabbed you on the first page and pulled you through the whole book almost nonstop to the end? Did you have a difficult time putting it down? Did you lose sleep, miss your train or bus stop or put off work so you could stay in the world the author created?

If you answered yes to all or most of the above questions then the author did his or her job. How did he do it? He used deep point of view. Deep POV is achieved when the writer so fully immerses the reader into the character’s head and heart that the writer virtually disappears, drawing the reader deeper into the story.

In this book, you'll learn about the different kinds of POV, choosing the right POV for your scene, when, how, and why to shift POV, how to achieve deep point of view, and more.

Recovered Innocence

Vindicate

Cora: I got my driver’s license on my sixteenth birthday so I could visit my brother in prison. Five and a half years later, he’s still locked up for a murder he didn’t commit and I’m still trying to find a way to set him free. Then I hear about Nash Security and Investigation, a private detective agency that helped exonerate a wrongfully convicted man after thirty-nine years in prison. The problem? They’ve already taken on the one pro-bono case they’ll accept this year.

Leo: I’m this close to finishing law school—and never working another day at my dad’s P.I. office—when Cora Hollis walks through the door. She’s got a box of files, a handful of leads, and an independent streak a mile wide. She fascinates me and I can’t say no. Suddenly I’m volunteering to help her find a missing witness who could be the key to her brother’s case. But nothing is what it seems and giving in to the attraction between us could be more dangerous than finding the real murderer.

Atone

Beau: Six years. That’s how long I spent behind bars for a crime I didn’t commit—the brutal murder of the woman I loved. Now I’m free, but life on the outside is a different kind of prison. I don’t know who I am or who I want to be. I don’t have a job, a home, or even a driver’s license. At least I have my sister, Cora. She never stopped believing in me. She even got me a job at the private investigation agency that cleared my name. And then Vera Swain walks into Nash Security and Investigations and kicks my world on its ass.

Vera: There’s only one thing that would make me come out of hiding after two years on the run—finding my sister. I made the mistake of telling a monster about her. The same monster who beat me and broke me. To save us both, I’m forced to confide in Beau Hollis of Nash Security and Investigations. He looks at me like he knows me—the real me. He sees too much, makes me feel too much. The pleasure he offers is exciting and addictive. But I can’t fall for him…because my love could get us both killed.

Reclaim

Nolan: Nothing’s ever come easy for me, especially not my dream job at Nash Security and Investigations. Righting wrongs is what I’m meant to do...except I manage to blow the very first chance I get. So why don’t they fire me on the spot? Hell, I’d fire myself if I could. Instead, my boss hands me an assignment that’s too important to screw up—and partners me with Lila Garcia, a gorgeous attorney with curves so distracting they should be illegal.

Lila: Like my client, a grieving mother charged with the murder of her own son, I know how quickly the American dream can become a nightmare. If anybody can help me clear her name, it’s Nash Security and Investigations. But Nolan Perry is a wild card. Bending the truth, breaking the law—that’s his business. I need to focus on the evidence. Not on how Nolan’s body fits so perfectly against mine. With a case this personal—and this dangerous—losing control is simply not an option...no matter how badly I want to give in.
