Romantic Comedy

I’m not the kind of escort you think I am. I have a strict set of rules:

1. No feelings.
2. No kissing.
3. And definitely, absolutely no bangin’.

The guys and I opened Beautiful Entourage five years ago. It started out as a side hustle to make some extra cash, but then it turned into a serious gig when clients agreed to our premium pricing. It’s a job like any other, do the work and go home.

But when I meet my brand-new client, everything gets a little complicated. Her name is Aspen and…she’s bangin’. A woman like that doesn’t need to hire a guy to pretend to be her man. Any single guy would do it for free. But she’s not trying to make an ex jealous or a potential boyfriend to notice her. She’s trying to get a job.

Humorous Romance
Round Robin Phinney…
She’s 230 pounds of bad attitude. She dishes out sandwiches and insults to the customers at Screaming Mimi’s deli. She takes a dim view of people in general and men in particular.
Her home is her sanctuary. She has an apartment upstairs. Downstairs, she’s created a private park, lushly landscaped, dotted with ponds, furnished with two Chicago Park District benches.
Manfred Welk is what Charles Atlas would have looked like if he’d been serious about lifting weights. A former Olympic powerlifter for East Germany, his ex-wife turned him in for spying. Brought to Chicago after the fall of the Berlin Wall, he needs a place to live.
When cold weather hits and Robin’s furnace goes out, the plants in her park start to die. Worse, she has no money for repairs — but she does have a small vacant apartment in her basement. Something she might swap for the services of a live-in handyman.

Paranormal Romance

As a vampire-hating psychic, Char should’ve seen it coming, but she didn’t.
Too focused on creating a cure for vampirism after watching her father turned into a bloodsucking menace, she looks at little else, until it’s too late. Not her lab being attacked and destroyed, her life’s work being stolen along with her lab assistant, nor the attractive and dangerous vampire, Julian, who swoops in to save the day, give her a job and the chance to set things right.

But when her lost serum turns up on the streets used as a murder weapon against vamps, she’s forced to hide the truth about her involvement in its development from her new boss in order to join the investigation. As they work together, she’s inexplicably drawn to the very type of creature she should be terrified of. Suddenly, the idea of being bitten becomes a turn on if it’s Julian’s fangs at her pulse.

Forced to admit everything she thought she knew about the bloodsuckers was wrong, Char is left with a decision: Should she create an antidote to save the vampires being murdered—and possibly the one she’s falling for? Or should she finish what she started and try to cure the rest?

I’m thrust into the middle of a murder mystery, and if I don’t help solve it, I might be next. A fortune-telling general store owner, a hunky Hawaiian pilot, my cat Tiki, and a couple of well-meaning cops named Lei and Pono seem to want to help—but they’re Auntie Pua supporters, and she’d be happy to see the last of me. This Hawaii village has more factions than a Mafia convention in Vegas, and I’m on my own tracking a killer with only a grumpy cat for backup.
If you like the Miss Fortune series, you’ll love Kat and her clue crew on Maui!
