From the minds that brought you Virtually Yours and Eternally Yours, a new case has emerged, and this killer is SUPERNATURAL...  

  

For Better or For Cursed Sneak Peak  

(appearing in Possessed By Passion: A Dark Paranormal Romance Collection) 

 

     A soft tickle brushed over her shoulder, almost as if a feather was being dragged across her skin. Lara moaned, her eyes closed, and swiped at it. The feather jumped, and traced a trail of goosebumps down her arm, caressing the crook of her inner arm before sliding up the side of her breast. 

     Lara sat up with a start, a scream hovered on her throat. Her hand clutched the sheet to her heaving chest as her eyes darted around the room, searching each shadow. She was alone.

     A shiver rolled down her back. Her teeth chattered. It was too early in the morning to deal with this.

     “What do you want Milo?” Her weary question was met with a chuckle.

     “How did you know it was me?” His hypnotic voice swirled around her.

     “The room got colder." Lara tucked the sheet under her armpits and scowled at the empty doorway. She didn't actually know if Milo was standing there, he could be sitting right beside her, but it made her uneasy to think he was so close to her.

     It's morning,” he taunted, her hair ruffled. “You left the window open.”

     Lara's gaze flicked to the window. An invisible breeze pushed the lace curtains toward the bed.

     “That could just be you doing it.”

     He chuckled again, obviously amused by her annoyance.

     “It was.” Milo's outline shimmered beside the window. He flashed her a winning smile. “Did you miss me?”

     “No.”

     “Come on now, is that the way to greet your husband in the morning?” He opened his translucent arms and floated closer.

     “My ex-husband,” Lara growled, grinding her teeth together.

     “You and I both know the divorce was never finalized.” His mouth twisted. “I died first.”

     “That was an accident.” Lara narrowed her eyes as he sat on the bed, his body now a solid form.

     “An accident is one time, love.” He reached out and captured her chin between his fingers, pinching. His eyes glowed black. “How many times did you stab me?”

     "Not enough, apparently."

Malik Gothel, next in line to run the family business, follows orders without question. When fate crosses his path with Zenna, his simple life is upended, and he makes a shocking decision that alters the course of his life forever.

On sale for a limited time, pick up your copy of A PERFECT PLAN, book 1 of the bestselling Wiltshire Chronicles series for LESS THAN A CUP OF COFFEE, and embark on an “adventurous mystery” that is a “must-read for fans of Historical Romance.”

 

An opinionated tomboy must navigate the dangers of society, unaware her brother's killer is lurking in her midst.

 

When her brother's ship sinks off the coast of France, Miss Samantha Hastings surrenders her quiet, country life to manage his affairs. Suddenly thrust into society, Samantha faces an unfamiliar world and the unnerving green eyes of Lord Westwood-her brother's best friend and her new guardian.

Benjamin, Lord Westwood, never intended on following through with his rash promise to act as guardian to Edward's bratty little sister. Upon learning of his best friend's death, Benjamin's intention was to marry her off to the first acceptable suitor. When he finds himself falling for Samantha instead, Benjamin alights upon the perfect plan: a marriage of convenience.

The plan, however, quickly unravels when they discover Edward's disappearance was due to foul play. Now, Samantha is in more danger than either of them realized, and Benjamin is running out of time. Can he save the woman he loves...or will murder ruin his perfect plan?

~Excerpt from ETERNALLY YOURS available now for only 99C~


“Detective, what a wonderful surprise to see you again, and so early in the morning. To what do we owe this pleasure?” Maurice’s oily voice slipped around Leo, greeting him as he stepped into the Wiltshire Tower’s pristine lobby.

 

 “You know damn well, why I’m here, Mr. Franklin.” Leo’s growl reverberated off the muted walls. 

 

Maurice held up a finger. “Language, Detective. We don’t like to disturb our residents with trivial problems.” 

 

“Such as death and mutilation.” 

 

Maurice’s eyes flashed dark. “Yes, those two subjects would be off-limits.” 

 

“I’ll need those tapes, Mr. Franklin.” Leo called over his shoulder as he walked past the concierge desk toward the elevator. This was becoming a familiar dance. 

 

“Just as soon as you provide me with the warrant, Detective, I’ll give you everything you need,” said Maurice, taunting. 

 

Sawyer twisted, his arm snapped out, and his hand closed around Maurice’s tie, yanking him over the desk. “We are here to solve a murder,” Sawyer hissed, his voice dropping to a whisper. “This is the third person to have been killed in your establishment this year, perhaps you ought to be tending your sheep a bit more closely instead of antagonizing the people who keep returning to clean up your mess.” 

 

“Release him.” The soft command caused Sawyer to glance up over at Leo. Leo nodded, his hard gaze locked on Sawyer. Relaxing his hand, Sawyer let Maurice scramble back across the desk. 

 

Straightening his tie and jacket, Maurice slicked his hair into place. With a sniff, he shot a scowl at Sawyer. “You should keep your dog on a leash, Detective.” 

 

“He’s a big boy, Mr. Franklin,” replied Leo, his voice cold. “I can’t always control him.” 

“I’d hate for some type of harm to befall such a beloved pet.” 

 

“Is that a threat?” Leaning forward, Sawyer cracked his knuckles. Maurice flinched, but recovered quickly, his mask of indifference sliding into place. 

 

“Please let me know if I can do anything to assist the police department with this delicate matter.” 

 

Leo leaned across the desk, his finger in Maurice’s face. “Stay out of my crime scene, Mr. Franklin. I will have a police officer on duty until my investigation is complete and if I find that you tampered with evidence, I will have you arrested.” 

 

“That all hinges upon the word if, doesn’t it?”

An Imperfect Engagement - Limited time sale

Pink

Planning her wedding takes a dangerous turn, when a woman realizes a member of her engagement party would rather kill her than walk down the aisle.

 

So far, Miss Samantha Hastings' engagement to Benjamin, Lord Westwood, has been tumultuous at best. Kidnapped by the man who murdered her father, nearly beaten to death, and severely poisoned, Samantha barely manages to escape alive.

When the killer reveals his revenge plot had assistance, the Hastings and Westwood families must band together to defend themselves against a new threat, and Samantha concocts a risky plan to draw the accomplice out of hiding. However, this scheme may cost her more than she is willing to sacrifice. There is a traitor in their midst--one who has already committed murder and is willing to do so again.

The masked ball approaches and, by the evening's end, at least one more person will die. Will Samantha survive until her wedding day... or will her imperfect engagement become a grizzly prelude to murder?

The second book into this intriguing series drags you deeper into the mystery, surrounding the reader in a dizzying array of passion, intrigue, and the richness of the Victorian era. In the vein of Deanna Raybourn and Amanda Quick, this darker installment of the Wiltshire Chronicles will reveal the violent nature of man.
