Sweet Romantic Comedy

The second dumbest thing I ever did was let my brother’s best friend kiss me …


Yeah, I shouldn’t have kissed Natalie Slater.

Not on the porch. Or at the beach. Or in the storage closet. Especially not the storage closet. But to be fair, she kissed me first. Six months later, I’m still thinking about it.

Trouble is, I’ve made promises that tie me to our small town, while Natalie can’t wait to escape. I’ve got no business pursuing her or my secret ambitions. My future’s set, and good people here are depending on me. Too bad my gut’s not listening to reason, and I’m being pulled toward different dreams: the career I’ve always wanted, and the woman whose smile I can’t forget…

Humorous Fantasy

My name is Jesse Ames. Eleven years at the FBI taught me two things—how to stay alive when a gun is pointed at my head, and that I never want to work for anyone else ever again. When I moved to Atlanta and started my own PI firm, I swore I’d never make my living chasing down missing or philandering spouses. But the rent is due, so when a woman knocked on my door and offered me a boatload of money to track down her missing husband who helped himself to a family heirloom on his way out, I had a hard time saying no. Seemed like easy money.


The local vampire cartel has also taken an interest in my case, and now I’m neck-deep in the shady blood trade questioning who the bad guys really are.

Scottish Medieval Historical Romance

Her blade cut him. Her charm might finish the job.
Pippia Mctavie’s mother died in childbirth, and while her father, Laird McTavie, isn’t cruel, he doesn’t dote on her because she reminds him of his lost love. As a result, Pippia was raised by her nanny and her father’s warriors and has spent more time knife-throwing blindfolded than gossiping or dancing like other lasses.

Her uncommon behavior is causing her and her father to grow further apart, but the Laird has a task in mind for his daughter. The Mctavies have been in a brutal war for years, and since he has no son to help him win the fight, the Laird will use his daughter to create an alliance!

Heist Thrillers
In the full-throttle, noir-soaked tradition of Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, the acclaimed young author of Bad Connection unleashes an ambitious and edgy new thriller pulsating with raw, urban energy.
Decorated NYPD Officer John Coglin always thought his picture on the front page of the newspaper would be one for the scrapbook.
That was before he had the bad luck to be forced into a witness-free, kill-or-be-killed confrontation with a drug-dealing thug. It’s of no help to him that the incident took place during the run-up to a bitter mayoral election campaign, and that his adversary was sixteen years old and black.
Now, instead of another commendation, Coglin is staring down the barrel of a media- and politics-stoked murder rap.
