A routine tax fraud investigation. A strange lab. A mysterious button.
He shouldn’t have pushed the button. But Alfred Favero, senior analyst with the IRS, pushed the button. And now he’s 67 million years in the past, stranded out of time with a coworker who hates him and a bunch of tax cheats.
Oh, and then there’s the other inhabitants of his prehistoric home: the dinosaurs that want to make a meal of him. Things couldn’t get worse.
Until a mysterious visitor from an uncertain future shows up with murder on his mind…
One tequila. Two tequila. Three tequila. Floor.
It’s all fun and games until you find yourself in a seriously embarrassing situation. And then it becomes hilarious. Damn tequila. It has the ability to make you do stupid things, and these frat boys learn that the hard way.
Pranking each other left and right is what they do, but when they meet the girls who steal their hearts, the jokes are on them more than ever.
Bestselling author C.A Harms brings you a box set of three standalone novels that have one thing in common…the aftermath of a night filled with copious amounts of tequila.
Oh’ Tequila, what have you done now?
Young Deputy Marshal Paul Zachary shouldn’t have accepted that badge. And he certainly shouldn’t have shot down a ruthless gunfighter in front of a crowd of onlookers at Belleville’s busiest saloon.
Now that the smell of gunpowder has faded and the blood has been scrubbed off the floor, Zachary is something he never wanted to be: a damned hero. He’s been written up in the papers and has more trouble on his hands than any 27-year-old man should ever have — especially a short, low-profile Civil War veteran, who just wants to outlive his family’s heroic reputation.
But, Paul Zachary’s no pushover. He learned to fight, and fight hard, from being the youngest in a tough line of men who’ve never missed a war. And, Zachary just survived three long, hard years in a ragtag, Rebel cavalry troop, charged with raiding Northern towns.

Pay looked at the swollen purple bruise masking the right eye of the skittish man sitting across the table from him in the San Francisco coffee shop. This guy’s so timid, I wonder if anyone can teach him the stuff he needs to learn. “Revenge School clients have to be seriously violated. We don’t help people with little stuff. Last week a guy wanted us to kill his neighbor for making a pass at his wife. That guy needs testosterone injections, not us. My team will help you destroy whoever beat you and your friend, but we aren’t free. Your first payment is $10k.” “Ten-thousand dollars,” Richard blinked. The hand stirring his Chai Tea shook and the spoon created a wave that slopped onto the Formica table. “If we succeed we’ll pay you back from the funds we take from your enemies.” “So then it costs me nothing?” “Revenge won’t cost you a dime. It won’t make you a dime. It will make you a man.”

Mary is a novel written in the first person, comprised of notes composed by Mary Todd Lincoln when she was an inmate of a lunatic asylum. She takes up her pen to block out the screams and moans of the other inmates and to save her own sanity. According to these notes, although she held séances in the White House and drove her family deeply into debt because of compulsive shopping, she was perfectly sane. She makes a good case for herself, despite occasional manic behavior and often uncontrollable grief.Mary was born to southern slaveholders in Kentucky, moved to Illinois when she was 20 to live with her sister and met Abe at a cotillion. His opening line was “Miss Todd, I want to dance with you the worst way.” Their relationship was odd, to say the least. Lincoln, as portrayed by Janis Cooke Newman, was sexually repressed and feared Mary’s passion. She was in an almost constant state of trying to seduce him, usually without success. Despite his gawky, angular, unlovely looks, she adored him–even when she had an affair with another to defuse some of her heat.
