Book Description:

Dogs are the best judge of character.

Eliza Jacobson has always been the black sheep of her mega-successful family, who runs the HealthNut Corporation. She’s not as pretty, talented, and business-savvy as her older sister. But she loves volunteering to work with the dogs at Pretty Paws, especially Athena, a Great Dane whose high-anxiety habits make her nearly unadoptable.

After her last-chance opportunity to become a vet tech collapses, she takes a job at the call center of HealthNut’s competitor, Thetalife Supplements, where she meets the dashing, charming, sweep-you-off-your-feet CEO, Tony Costos. She thinks she may have finally found her Prince Charming and the fairytale life she’s always dreamed of.

At first, Tony showers her with compliments and gifts. But when he adopts Athena to use as the Thetalife mascot, Eliza finds herself shielding the dog from Tony’s temper, and the Great Dane’s increasingly anxious behavior mirrors Eliza’s own growing unease.

Will Athena’s friendship give Eliza the courage to stand up to Tony before his dark ambitions destroy everyone she loves?

Book Description:

He’s never forgotten their first—and last—kiss. But is it too late for a second chance?

Poppy Cavanaugh’s life is a dumpster fire thanks to her two-timing fiancé, whose unexpected death left her not only heartbroken but homeless and unemployed to boot.

Landing the open teaching job at the high school might just be the chance she needs to finally get her life back on track—even if she has to coach the girls’ softball team to do it.

Too bad she still has nightmares about the last time she caught a fly ball…with her nose.

MLB pitcher Damon Santos is having a career crisis of his own. With his contract up for renegotiation, the last thing he needed was a shoulder injury benching him for the remainder of the season—if not his entire career. Rest, training, and a new perspective are just what the doctor—and his mother—ordered, and are why he finds himself back in the hometown that had once felt too small for his big dreams.

Only returning to Blue Haven hasn’t been the nightmare he expected. Not with Poppy Cavanaugh around, a woman who, despite her propensity for diving into bushes upon seeing him, still has him thinking back to their first—and last—kiss all those years ago.

However, Poppy’s been burned one too many times by charmers like Damon Santos and will take whatever evasive moves are necessary to keep her heart safe.

But when the softball season goes from bad to worse, and the girls start talking mutiny, Poppy’s desperation has her calling on the only expert who might help her turn things around…

Book Description:

When fifteen-year-old Shannon Hoffman goes missing, Detective Winston Radhauser conducts a frantic search of Ashland and its surrounding areas. He knows kidnapping victims rarely survive beyond the first forty-eight hours, and the clock is ticking.

None of her friends have seen her since cheerleading practice. Local volunteers post flyers, search parks, wooded areas and canvas door-to-door along the route Shannon would have taken home. Videos from school and neighborhood security cameras show nothing. They notify airline terminals, train and bus stations, but no one saw a girl matching her description leave Ashland.

During his investigation, Radhauser’s learns Shannon’s neighbor and lifelong friend, a boy named Rich Gasser, died less than two weeks before her disappearance. Rich had stood in front of a moving freight train. His death shocked the small community and devastated Shannon. Could she have run away? Was she depressed enough to join Rich? The medical examiner determined the boy’s death a suicide, but Rich’s parents know there is more to it. They believe Carson Summers, an older high school student, bullied their son to death.

According to her girlfriends, Shannon and Carson were an item until she discovered how cruel his bullying of Rich had become. Witnesses to their altercation claim Carson took the breakup badly and threatened to get even with Shannon. He is convinced there is a link between Rich’s alleged suicide and Shannon’s disappearance.

Will Detective Radhauser find that link before it’s too late to save Shannon?

The deeper Radhauser digs, the more secrets he uncovers.

Book Description:

Never trust anyone without a gift. That’s the motto of fifteen-year-old Lizzie Nelson, a wharf rat in a Restoration London much like our own. The other rats call her “Lucky Lizzie,” even though her parents are dead, her brother Daniel is missing, and there’s a price on her head. But her gift, seeing the future, has saved her life.

It’s 1662, Charles II rules, and in this England, only children develop supernatural powers called gifts, growing out of them if they manage to survive to adulthood. The Nobility covet gifted children, sending trackers to capture them. Lord Hazelton is the worst of them all: children abducted for him are never seen again. Hazelton has heard of Lizzie’s visions and wants her for his own. Her luck may have just run out.

Hazelton’s tracker, Gilbert, corners Lizzie in an alley, and she sets him on fire to escape. He survives, but horribly disfigured. Now he wants revenge, planning to disfigure her, too, before delivery to his master.

Angry that no one protects the orphans living by the river, Lizzie decides to start the Wharf Rat Guild. The rats swear to protect each other and keep their hideout, Haven, a secret, on pain of death. Everyone’s safety depends on trusting each other.

Then Mags, Lizzie’s young friend, is kidnapped from inside Haven itself. Lizzie, with her allies Kat and Esmeralda, go in pursuit. They discover Hazelton’s plot against the king at the village fair near Hazelton’s Manor. Lizzie and Esmeralda are captured by Hazelton’s men. Imprisoned with other gifted children, Lizzie learns Hazelton plans to kill them too: a fortuneteller warned him that children would be his downfall. Every child in his stable will be killed, once his plot against the King is in motion.

It’s up to the three friends to free the children and stop the plot that will plunge the country into civil war.

Book Description:

She’s promiscuous and unforgivably French. He’s handsome and a devoted man in uniform. They have an opposites-attract friendship, but he’s hoping a simple business affair can take them from friends to lovers…for the rest of their lives.

Aimeé Baillieu has made a name for herself in the kitchen and the bedroom. The French-born chef has been known to leave people speechless – in both areas of her life. And that’s just how she likes it. After learning her lesson the hard way, Aimeé knows two things to be true: A promiscuous lifestyle is satisfying and safe.

Christopher Finnegan is your everyday, wholesome, cop-next-door. He had the luxury of meeting Aimeé through mutual friends – her best friends, to be exact. Of course, since the day he laid eyes on her, his life has been one of longing and torture. But Chris is in the gut-wrenching, head-over-heels love game long term.

So far, Aimeé has successfully avoided her badgering friends and their insistence that there’s more between her and Christopher. But, when Aimeé plants a single, innocent kiss on his cheek, it changes everything. Aimeé realizes she’s not only lost interest in other men, she also can’t stop thinking about Christopher.

Ever since that soul-stealing kiss, Chris has been blinded by love and that undeniable nauseous feeling in the pit of his stomach. So it’s time he makes a move. And, if Aimeé is a fan of affairs, he’s happy to give her one.
