Two children and a nanny slaughtered in the home of a rich young lawyer and his beautiful wife was unheard of. Shunned cop, Detective Finn O’Brien, and his partner, Cori Anderson, must connect the dots between the L.A. ladies-who-lunch, lawyers who skate on the edge of the law, pornographers, and Hollywood freaks.

Following a trail of bodies and shattered relationships, they uncover a horrific truth behind the murders that will either bind them together for eternity or sever their relationship in the cruelest cut of all.

Healthy Living

This book reveals the simple secret to losing your sugar belly and never seeing it again.

Trendy low-carb diets, exercise programs, exercise equipment, and weight-loss surgeries typically produce a yo-yo effect, with short-term gains that cannot be sustained for a meaningful length of time. It’s a vicious cycle that teases you with progress, raises your hopes, and brings you crashing back to reality.

The Sugar Belly Secret is different. It’s a new, highly effective, easily sustainable weight-loss system based on the best practices of the most successful low-carb and high-carb diets that substitute real, healthy food and beverages for fake, processed ones. It doesn’t require you to count calories, reduce portion sizes, or exercise, either.

In his informative and entertaining new book, The Sugar Belly Secret: Subtract the Sugar, Lose the Weight, and Transform Your Life, Joe Bovino explains how he discovered the secret to lasting weight loss and maintenance, and how you can use it to improve your appearance, health and fitness at any age.

Ghost Fiction

Never Flip a Haunted House…

In less than 24 hours Nate Merritt loses his job, his girlfriend, and his estranged Aunt Edna. But after Edna’s will bequeaths him a historic mansion deep in the backwoods of Louisiana, Nate hatches a daring plan: he’ll renovate the house and flip it for a tidy profit. The fact that Nate knows nothing about home improvement doesn’t deter him at all.

Too bad he doesn’t realize the mansion in question happens to be haunted. And the ghost who lives there might not be so indiscriminate about Nate’s ability.

Humorous and irreverent, The House That Jack Built is a story of learning how to move on to the next chapter of life—as well as a tribute to every disastrous renovation ever attempted by a homeowner.

And ghosts. Don’t forget the ghosts.

Once bitten, twice shy.
Rafe Blackstone may play the sexiest werewolf superhero to ever melt a woman’s…heart…on the big screen, but Lily Hollander has already been bitten once by an actor, and once was enough. When she’s fooled all over again, it’s time to put that wayward heart in lockdown mode, especially once Rafe starts aiming his overprotective streak at her identical twin. Lily may seem like the softer side of the twinship, but nobody messes with her sister.

There’s nothing she can do about Rafe being her temporary neighbor in the mountains above Sinful, Montana, or about being forced to witness the least impressive feats of horsemanship known to man. That doesn’t mean she has to let him into her lingerie store, her heart, or any other part of her anatomy. He can just take his silver-blue wolf eyes, his rueful smile, and the rest of his gorgeous self, and…Wait, where was she again?

The sun is shining on the golden castle on Rainbow Bay – and change is in the air!

Amelia is a single mother, doing her very best to look after her young son, Charlie – but money is tight and times are tough. When she first hears that she is the last descendent of the Chesterford family and that she has inherited a Real-Life Castle by the sea, Amelia can’t quite believe her ears. But it’s true!

She soon finds that owning a castle isn’t quite the ticket to sorting out her money problems that she’d first hoped: she can’t sell, because the terms of the ancient bequest state that any Chesterford who inherits the castle, must live there and work towards the upkeep and maintenance of the family home.
