I Think I Love You

by Stephanie Bond

Sisters share everything in their closets, including the skeletons…

Twenty years ago, the Metcalf sisters witnessed a murder and formed a pact of silence. Now they’re estranged and scattered because they all fell in love with the same man–fiery older sister Justine was engaged to handsome Dean Haviland; at the same time Dean was trying to bed mousy Regina, then jilted Justine at the altar to elope with their younger sister Mica.

Middle sister Regina Metcalf is a self-help book editor in Boston, perennially in search of a book that will help her sort out her own unfulfilled life. Ever the referee, she still feels responsible for not being able to keep her family together. Then her mother calls and asks her to come home to North Carolina–her parents are splitting and need help liquidating their antiques store. Regina agrees, even though she knows the trip home will dredge up ghosts.

Oldest sister Justine Metcalf is a balls-busting executive for a cosmetics company in Pennsylvania. She has money, power, and great redheaded looks. But her penchant for other women’s husbands backfires when a scorned wife comes after her. Justine decides an impromptu visit to her parents in North Carolina is in order.

To the outside world, youngest sister Mica Metcalf seems to have the ideal life–she’s a gorgeous, successful hair model living in L.A., with a celebrity lifestyle and handsome Dean Haviland on her arm. Both of her sisters wanted him, but she got him–and, unfortunately, his temper. Mica can’t bring herself to leave him, until she learns he’s cheating. She decides to retreat to her parents’ home in North Carolina to recuperate and to ponder her next move.

When the sisters converge at their childhood home, old wounds are laid open against the backdrop of liquidating their parents’ antiques business. And when Dean shows up, things go from bad to worse, especially when the lady-killer turns up dead.

The Wachuga Project

by Douglas E. Wolfert

Jeremy Barnard appears to be a normal kid. He’s good looking, well-mannered, from an affluent family, has even earned valedictorian of his class. A perfect recipe for success. Then why is his life one, big, epic fail? Because every time he tries to speak, a complete and utter mess comes out. School life is hell, with Jeremy’s Neanderthal peers mocking him at every turn. To make matters worse, his father affords him little relief at home. Francis cringes with disgust every time his son ‘st..st..stutters’, cursing the powers above for burdening him with such a defective little boy.

Jeremy longs for a normal life. He’d give anything for the ability to socialize at a party, or tell his high school crush, Samantha, that she’s beautiful… give everything to earn his father’s respect and no longer be a laughing stock. But is Jeremy willing to give his soul?

Little does Jeremy know, his salvation lies in Calvin Ortiz, a hot-headed, maniacal thug who stumbles upon something extraordinary while hiking with his brother in the jungles of Costa Rica – a plant… a beautiful, vibrant green plant teeming with delicate, fuzzy flowers that look good enough to eat. And that’s exactly what Calvin does. His knees buckle from the God-like metamorphosis that overtakes him. This is better than any drug he’s ever tried, and Calvin’s gold tooth glints in the sun as visions of dollar signs dance in his head. But this stuff’s too good to sling on his local street corner. Nah, the black market won’t do. The Wachuga, as he names it, deserves more respect than that. In a moment of stoned clarity, Calvin contacts the one person he knows with enough connections to turn his discovery into some serious bank.

And with that one phone call, The Wachuga Project is born, and Jeremy’s life, for good or ill, will never be the same. Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for…

The Unannounced Christmas Visitor

by Patrick Higgins

What if angels really did come from the most unlikely of places? That’s exactly what happens in this heartwarming story set in Anywhere USA. Sent to Planet Earth by his Maker, disguised as a homeless person, Enoch was on a mission: to rescue a man whose life was slowly but steadily spiraling out of control.

Up until seven months ago, John Jensen was a responsible, churchgoing, happily married man and father of two. Then the slow fade began and John went from living life passionately to questioning everything he once thought important, deeming much of it utterly meaningless.

The only place his wife, Lydia, could go to escape her ongoing marital struggles was the church she attended the past seventeen years. But even there it seemed her desperate cries to God for help always went unanswered. That is, until Enoch appeared one Sunday morning, hair unkempt, wearing ragged clothing.

To Lydia’s great dismay, the old man was mocked and ridiculed by so many of her fellow believers, ultimately banished to the last row of the sanctuary simply because of his untidy appearance. One week later, after church service, Lydia and her two children, Matthew and Grace, spotted the old man walking to the city park where he lived among many other homeless people.

Later that night, Lydia felt God’s strong urging to introduce herself to the man she still did not know had been sent as her Christmas miracle. In the days following her first visit to the homeless community in which the old man served as spiritual mentor, Lydia and her two children learned more about what it means to be true servants of God than she did in seventeen years at her church.

But with John Jensen being Enoch’s chief reason for coming to Planet Earth, would the severely depressed, apathetic man submit to the pulling of God’s Holy Spirit, or was he already too far gone to be rescued?

Alexa O’brien Huntress Series Book 1-4 Box Set

by Trina M. Lee

This box set includes the first four books in the Alexa O’Brien Huntress series.

Once Bitten (Book 1):

Alexa O’Brien has never been like other people. A hunter of supernatural rogues, she is a werewolf with unusual but extraordinary power. Power that draws her to Arys Knight, the mysterious vampire who awakens her dark side. What they create together is dangerous and binding, forcing her to question the source of her abilities. It threatens not only her remaining humanity, but her relationship with fellow werewolf, Shaz Richardson, as well.

When Alexa’s womanizing former lover and the Alpha of her pack is framed for murder, he draws public attention that could earn him a death sentence unless she steps in to help him. Alexa would love to watch karma at work but as the body count rises, long buried secrets are exposed. She’s forced to face the painful truth that not everyone is who she thinks they are.

The Wicked Kiss (Book 2):

Alexa O’Brien is a magnet for trouble. Due to the power she shares with bad ass vampire, Arys Knight, power hungry creatures are eager to get a taste of her. That includes Arys’ sadistic sire, a vampire that sees her as a toy, perfect for his personal collection. If he doesn’t kill her, she just might wish he had.

Alexa is in danger, something her wolf mate Shaz blames entirely on Arys. The tension runs high when an argument blows up into a full physical confrontation between the two men. Alexa learns there is one way to protect herself from those who see her as a walking, talking power trip. Now she is faced with her biggest decision yet.

But can the two men she loves put aside their differences when it matters most? Because this is one sacrifice that will forever alter her very mortality.

Only Vampires Cry Blood (Book 3):

Alexa O’Brien has more power than she can handle. A werewolf bound to a vampire by a force bigger than the both of them, Alexa is feeling lost. Desperation drives Alexa to make a deal with the one person who can guide her, a man she loathes, Harley Kayson. He just so happens to be the sire of her vampire lover, Arys Knight. To say Arys is pissed about this would be putting it lightly.

Conflict threatens to destroy what Alexa and Arys share. Due to their eternal bond, they can never truly walk free of each other. When Arys teams up with his sire to revisit their sordid past, the pain he and Alexa inflict on one another rises to a scathing boil. Alexa comes to realize that her only solution is to fulfill Arys’s greatest wish and worst nightmare, regardless of the consequences.

Blonde & Blue (Book 4):

Bloodlust and power. Werewolf Alexa O’Brien is a slave to them both. As she falls deeper into the seductive embrace of blood and death, the dangerous desire is encouraged by a forbidden attraction.

While trying to run the problematic local vampire hotspot, The Wicked Kiss, Alexa learns that someone is seeking the killers of its former owner. One of those killers just happens to be her. For Alexa’s vampire lover, Arys Knight, it takes a personal twist and soon becomes clear there’s something he’s not sharing. Something that could unlock the mystery of where their power comes from and why it is so deadly.
