Surface Tension (Seychelle Sullivan Book 1) (affiliate link)
What would you do if you discovered a $5M superyacht unmanned and adrift, a trail of blood across the deck, and a bikini-clad blonde with a knife in her back?
That’s exactly what Florida salvage captain Seychelle Sullivan finds when she responds to a strange woman’s Mayday call.
Worse, the missing skipper is Neal Garrett, her ex.
But when she ties the salvaged yacht to the Coast Guard dock, the Fort Lauderdale detective zeroes in on her as a suspect and raises questions.
Questions she can’t answer.
Is Neal dead or alive?
There’s a killer in Sanctuary, and the prime suspect is a horse!
Spirited Ember Burns is led back home to open her own veterinary practice, and her first client lands her in the middle of a murder mystery. When the evidence points to the horse as the cause of death, she vows to protect him.
But horses don’t talk and neither do the dead, so Ember has to rely on her intelligence and instinct to get to the truth. A truth buried under layers of small-town secrets. Some that are big enough to get you killed.
Battling a reluctant Sheriff and pushy Mayor, Ember struggles to get her business off the ground while digging deeper. Why would anyone want to kill the local farrier? And who was plotting to stop her? As the town gears up for its centennial celebration, Ember is led from local ranches to the surrounding mountains in her quest. Can she unveil the true culprit before they get away with murder?

Servant of the Blood (Everly Abbott Book 1) (affiliate link)
I grew up with them, the creatures of the night, the blood suckers, the monsters.
I knew vampires before I could walk, not that I knew what they really were. I knew they weren’t really like me. They looked like me and they could act like me, but we were fundamentally different. I was human, just like my parents, and when I turned eighteen, I decided to work for the vampires after college, too. We had worked for their nest for over five generations and I wanted to continued that tradition.
But then, the master of the nest died. He’d practically raised me, my mother, my father, and everyone before us. He had looked at humans working for the nest as part of the nest. We were members of the family, even though we weren’t immortal or drank blood. He kept tight control and accidents were so rare I had never seen one happen.
The new master of the nest is not so kind or good at the job.
