Brady has loved Niara for as long as he can remember, but long ago gave up the dream of ever seeing her again when she moved after graduation.

The Book of Love


Romance editor Janaeh Forrester is a problem solver. A Jill of all trades, she’s worked in all aspects of publishing and no challenge is too big for her to overcome. It’s this reputation that leads her new employer to send her after the elusive Delilah Daniels, their top selling romance writer, who won’t deliver her latest manuscript and made the last editor quit.

But “Delilah” is nothing that Janaeh expects. It’s the pen name of Carter Daniels, a thirty-something man as sexy as he is arrogant and frustrating.

Six months have passed since Carter’s divorce was finalized and writing happily-ever-afters seems like a lie he can no longer tell. When Janaeh shows up at his door with a schedule in hand and threats to take back his advance if he doesn’t meet his deadlines, he assumes it’s a joke. But his attractive new editor is there to see that he finishes the book, driving him mad with both irritation and desire.

Her presence stirs up something far more sinister, however: Janaeh is directly in the path of Carter’s more fanatical followers, and someone will stop at nothing to get her out of the way.

I Who Have Nothing


A man bent on revenge...

Darren Dallas watched his father die at the hands of his corrupt business partner five years ago. He left law school, gave up the life he was building, and descended into an underworld where drugs and prostitution run rampant, struggling to survive as he seeks to bring his father’s killer to justice. He’s had many close calls, but none as bad as when he’s almost made by his target after following him into a nightclub and stands face to face with a loaded gun wielded by a murderer.

A woman with a secret...

Contemporary blues singer Ella Lockwood enjoys the local club scene, with loyal fans following her show to show but able to fly under the radar and enjoy her privacy. She never expected to see high school sweetheart Darren Dallas again—not after she abruptly broke his heart several years ago, and certainly not now in the club where she performs while a notorious thug threatens to kill him.

Ella rescues her old flame with a lie, one that throws them together and tangles her in the dangerous web he now lives in. Worse still, the sparks are still there between them, and their rising desire is a fire that threatens to consume them if Darren’s quest—and Ella's past—doesn’t kill them first.
