Dating in the Dark
by Tracey Rogers

Sweet Delights Series Book 1

Can you find what you need hidden within the dark?

Hiding out in his sister's bakery to recover from a recent injury isn't an ideal solution for newly unemployed meteorologist Damian Trent. Especially since he doesn't like cake. But hiding anywhere is preferable to facing the media frenzy revolving around his life. He has no intention of being seen by anyone. That is, until he hears a honey-toned voice over the phone.

Public relations agent Sophie Rose has a boss who makes her working week a hellish one. He drives her to her need for sugar, so the recently opened Sweet Delights Bakery is perfect for her much needed Friday treat. But one day when she calls to place an order, she gets an unexpected surprise.

Sophie's keen to dump her V-plates, though only the right man will do. Damian, with his sexy, yet familiar sounding voice, seems the ideal person for her to gain some much needed experience with. But why do they need to date in the dark?

Unmasked
by
EM Kaplan

DescriptionMel can sense the blood beating through her companions’ veins. She can count the moments between heartbeats to tell who is sincere and who is lying. She can make herself stronger for short periods of time, heal small wounds on her body, and manipulate light to change her appearance subtly. These abilities are useful skills for a Mask—a preternaturally sensitive, cloaked and imposing, impartial arbitrator, both revered and feared by everyone.

Behind the Walls
by
Elaine Orr

DescriptionThere’s something hidden behind the walls of the hurricane damaged house Jolie bought in her New Jersey beach town. Something someone seems willing to kill for. After Jolie and Scoobie find a small sack of jewelry as they do a mold attack on her bungalow, Jolie is pursued by a purse thief and a burglar. But the guy she’s most worried about is the one who left an elderly auctioneer dead on her porch swing. In between appraising houses and planning a fundraiser for the food pantry (can you say liquid string contest?), Jolie tries to figure out if there is more stolen bounty around town. Is the feared killer the same person who burned some vacant houses, or the as-yet unmasked Peeping Tom? And are they willing to kill again to get to the hidden riches?

Heart Shaped Shards
by
Ria MacAlister

DescriptionBeaten once again and left for dead by the man she should have been able to trust with her life, Kate awakened from a coma to discover that not only has she lost the precious baby she carried, the beating also damaged her internally so that doctors didn't think she would ever conceive again. As if that weren't enough, Kate is also nearly blind due to the injury to her brain.

Scarred--not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually too--Kate moves in with her childhood friend to try to recover. Eventually her physical body begins to heal, but her emotional state seems to deteriorate with each passing day. It isn't until Patricia Daniels, an Irish psychotherapist, comes into her life that Kate finally starts putting the pieces back together in her shattered life.

Patricia (Trish to her friends) takes Kate with her on holiday to Ireland and Scotland. Through a series of kindhearted Celtic men, brick by brick Kate is finally able to bring down the fortr

His feelings towards Anna reawaken, but will life and family conflicts conspire to keep them apart again?

The Briton and the Dane: Legacy
by
Mary Ann Bernal

DescriptionWhispered by the wise and the learned. Talked of in hushed tones round luminous firesides. Engraved by awestruck scribes in the scriptoria of the Chronicles. Against all the odds, great King Alfred defeated a vastly superior Danish army outside Chippenham.

This victory, the sages prophesied, would guarantee peace throughout the land. Or so they thought.

Two years later, Rigr the Bastard, vengeful and seeking to claim his birthright, was defeated in the wilds of East Anglia. His blood smeared berserker warriors vanquished; no quarter asked for - no quarter given.

Now, a further two years later, the Vikings return. Noble Prince Sven instigates a seaborne invasion, fuelled partly by blind rage when he discovers that his brother, Prince Erik, has sworn fealty to the Anglo-Saxon king.

His own brother: A traitor and a fool.

Erik’s love, Lady Gwyneth, attempts to stop the invasion before it starts by uniting the two estranged brothers, but her scheming only succeeds in making matters worse. Indeed, her interference guarantees the death of thousands of warriors in the freezing, tumultuous North Sea.

So when the horns of Sven’s monumental fleet of warships are heard off the fogbound coast of Britannia, King Alfred – outnumbered, outshipped and weary of the fray - must rouse his jaded Saxon warriors and lead them to sea, to repel his most formidable enemy yet.

For a host motivated by the spilled blood of the fallen, the spirit of black vengeance, and the delights of a warrior’s reward in Valhalla, is the most fearsome opponent of all.

Alfred. Sven. Erik. Gwyneth. Amidst the ferrous reverberation of a battle royale - one or all must die, and the fate of a nation hangs in the balance, one final time.


Farewell to Goodbye
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionBook #1 of the Never Say Goodbye Series

Sometimes goodbye is not forever…

It’s been seven years since Melanie Rhodes was brutally attacked by a deranged serial killer. Now, sheriff of the sleepy little village of Spring Haven, Michigan, things are good. The worst crimes she has to deal with are kids partying on vacant property and the occasional domestic dispute.

Even when a woman’s body is found in the woods, she thinks she has a straight forward murder case on her hands. But when the second body is discovered she makes a startling connection between the two dead women. Both were attacked by serial killers in their past and both had lived to tell about it. Fearing the worst, she prepares to call in the FBI for help but before she can, her fears are confirmed. Another young woman’s body is found by a fisherman, and she too had been attacked by a serial killer in the past.

The FBI sends in Trevor Giles, their best monster hunter and a man from Mel’s terrifying past. As the bodies begin to pile up Mel and Trevor must learn to put the past behind them in order to work together to find the killer. And together they will have to use both conventional and unconventional means to unravel the mystery. Mel will have to dip into a talent she has vowed never to use again. She will have to “connect” to the killer’s mind in order to find him. Time is running out and the killer’s intentions are clear. The ultimate prize must be claimed: Sheriff Melanie Rhodes herself.
