Jack Delvaux is alive

Summer Redding thought the blindingly handsome jock who’d loved and left her years ago had died in the Washington Massacre. She grieved for her lost golden boy as the rest of the country mourned their dead—until she comes home to find a very alive Jack Delvaux waiting for her with a devastating secret that turns her life upside down.

No longer the carefree man he was in his youth, this Jack is dark, hard and dangerous; a fifteen-year veteran of the CIA hungry for answers…and hungry for her. The rich, good-looking charmer who broke her heart once before would have been easy to resist, but this man, this powerful man? Summer needs him, and he knows it.

When Jack’s mission uncovers evidence of government involvement in the Massacre—and plans for another attack—he’s primed for revenge. But he has more than vengeance to live for now, and when Summer’s life is threatened, it’s nearly Jack’s undoing. Someone taking shots at his woman? That’s a dead man walking.

Blurb: When danger lurks, look to the MEN OF MIDNIGHT: dark, dangerous, and willing to do anything to protect the women they love.

Former navy SEAL Joe Harris nearly died—twice—on a medevac helo after being blown up by an IED. He’s not moving too great these days, but if there was ever a woman designed to jump-start a man’s hormones, it would be his new neighbor.

Meeting Isabel—loving Isabel—brought Joe back to life.

Isabel Delvaux came from one of America’s foremost political dynasties, until the greatest terrorist attack since 9/11 killed her entire family. She barely survived the Washington Massacre, only to become prey for rabid reporters. Fleeing to Portland and changing her name was a way out, a way to start over. The only way.

She knows she’s safe with Joe Harris. Not just because he’s big and strong, not just because he’s part of a security team that obliterates threats on the regular, but because he’s been to the abyss and back.

But as they help each other heal—through talk, through touch, through spectacular sex—the past comes back to play. When Isabel’s memory starts to return and a mysterious stranger sends Joe emails indicating Isabel is in imminent danger, he’ll do anything to help her uncover the truth. Even if that truth is the most terrifying thing of all…

For a librarian with a focus on rare magic books, Olivia’s new job is a dream come true.

He has been hit with a curse that is slowly taking away his sight, and he doesn’t know if he will survive the results.

But the powerful feelings growing between them, along with Sebastian’s inner turmoil, take a backseat when they learn there is a traitor lurking among their expedition team. With Elder Races politics and a priceless library on the line, they’ll have to rely on each other to survive the experience.

Blurb: Beware of shifters bearing cheese puffs … they might be about to steal your heart and make you whole again.

What do you get when you mix one feisty sprite of a woman …

Cassidy Hackett knows all about life’s hard knocks. After growing up in foster care, her only family is her friend Effie, who sees past Cassie’s sarcasm to the heart she shields so carefully.

But now Effie is mated to a cougar shifter, and Cassie feels left behind. When a fateful decision to drown her sorrows one night leaves her broken and scarred, she’s almost ready to give up on life.

Almost.

With one burly, sexy man …

Grizzly shifter Cash Rochon loves his family and his job. But it feels like he’s been searching forever for his mate–that special woman meant only for him.

When he hears about a human recuperating from a terrible accident at a relative’s house, he’s glad to help out. Little does he know that his greatest wish is about to be answered … in a way he never expected.

And lots of patience, devotion, and peanut butter cups?

Cassidy needs to heal inside and out, and it won’t be easy. The one thing that keeps her going–not that she would ever admit it–is Cash, who refuses to give up on her.

He’s willing to do whatever it takes to coax his sharp-tongued pixie out of her shell–even indulge her junk food habit. Cash wants nothing more than to show her the love she’s always needed. But after a lifetime of wearing emotional armor, is Cassie ready to lower her guard?
