Peaches Monroe is a curvy blonde who manages a little bookstore, in a small town in Washington State.

She's twenty-two, and shares a house with her cousin, who's also her best friend.
Life is good for Peaches. Simple, but good. Sometimes she gets a little wild and goes drunk-shopping on the internet. She's never had a boyfriend, but that just leaves more time for her books.

Dalton Deangelo is a hot, young actor who sets ladies' hearts on fire. He shot to stardom from out of nowhere, and he's very secretive about his past, preferring to focus on his work. He's famous for playing the sexiest bad boy vampire on TV. Week after week, he's seen kissing beautiful, thin actresses ... or burying his face between their legs.

Now Dalton is in Beaverdale, Washington, to shoot an indie movie over the summer. He comes running into the bookstore looking for a place to hide from reporters, and refuses to leave until he gets a date with Peaches.

As soon as Peaches kisses Dalton, her quiet, small-town life begins to unravel. Peaches Monroe is launched toward the stars, beginning with a job in LA as a plus-size model for a

Powerful creatures have long been rumored to roam the Earth-- demons, wraiths, the undead, vampires. What if they are not just the stuff of legend? What if there is a scientific basis for their existence?

There's a secret lab in the basement of the prestigious Buchanan Medical Center, where the newly declared dead become subjects in pathologist Gunter Mueller's research in cutting-edge resuscitation medicine. None of his subjects have survived--until now.

Chip is on duty as monitor watcher in the ICU when Chandler is wheeled in; mere minutes later, Chandler has fled into the night, leaving behind a violently murdered nurse, the first of many victims.

When she applies the technique to a photo of Chandler inadvertently captured on the night of his escape, Chandler has no aura. And somehow, Chandler knows she has that damning photograph...

Still suffering flashbacks after being attacked by his former boss wielding a bone saw three years ago, anesthesiologist Doug Landry is teaching residents at the Buchanan Med Center during a six-month sabbatical when his wife Laura is seriously injured in a biking accident. When things go terribly wrong on the operating table, Laura is delivered to Dr. Mueller for resuscitation...

Before Midnight (Blood Prince - Book #1) by Jennifer Blackstream

Loupe always dreamed of getting married. She yearned for a caring husband who would take her away from her servant-like existence at home with her stepmother and two stepsisters, a man who would love her forever. Those dreams ended the day she was bitten by a werewolf. Now she’s a mindless beast on the night of the full moon—a condition that forever prevents her from sharing a marriage bed. Not even the attentions of a handsome and endearingly strong prince can convince her that the life she wants is still possible. 

Etienne is a prince in need of a werewolf. A werewolf himself from birth, Etienne and his family have protected their kingdom with tooth and claw—literally—for thousands of years. Unfortunately, the spell of a well-meaning witch is slowly turning him human. Only the bite of a cursed werewolf, one who was not born with the beast inside, can save him from becoming human. He has no time for anything that will not lead him to a cure for the cure. Not even the beautiful maiden whose gentle nature soothes his soul can take his mind from his goal. 

Love cares little for the best laid plans or the impossible. A grand ball. The stroke of twelve. A magic “slipper.” All kinds of things can happen when you don’t leave the ball…Before Midnight.

Human suffering has augmented the power of the Dark Veil for thousands of years.  During times of extreme imbalance between the Dark Veil and the Shine, intensifications of the auras have resulted in powerful physical manifestations on Earth.
These events have been documented by human history in the forms of myths and stories.

This time, there will be no stopping Him and his quest to cleanse the human world of sin.


The Legend of Shadow and Light is an epic tale about the rise of the agent of Dark Veil and the desperate response by the Order of the Shine to save humanity.
In Volume one, readers are taken 'Into the Darkness', as the Dark Veil's spawn takes physical form and the world descends into despair. The Dark One builds a devastating Black Legion of the undead and the zombie apocalypse begins.
Can members of the Shine rally in time to prevent total destruction? The bodies of thousands of innocent residents from eight obliterated U.S. cities leave no reason for confidence.
Fans of horror, dark fantasy, suspense and historical fiction will all enjoy this hard-hitting, fast paced thrill ride. It's got something for everybody: 

Intense Action Scenes, Strong Good Characters, Frightening and Well Developed Evil Characters, a Battle Against Zombie Apocalypse, Intriguing Alternate History Plot Lines, Even some Spicy Romance and Humor.

When she meets a hooded figure named Vaughn at a party, he takes her on a whirlwind escape that jolts her from her current reality into Silicon City, where humans are upgraded, currency is clout, and bionic eyes are the only way to get information among the glass and metal spiraling buildings that dot the skyline. Oh, and the year is 2198, not 2052 like she thought it was.

Melt With You (Fire and Icing - Book #1) by Jessie Evans


Some fires never burn out… 

After ten years as America’s sweetest celebrity chef, Naomi Whitehouse is enjoying life out of the spotlight, back in her hometown of Summerville, Georgia. She’s opening a pastry shop with her sister, housesitting for her snowbird parents, and reconnecting with her roots. Life is good until she runs into her high school sweetheart, Jake Hansen, a sexy firefighter who gives her a reception chilly enough to freeze a forest fire. If Naomi wants her homecoming to remain all cupcakes and sugar cookies, she’ll have to win Jake over. But how can she earn his forgiveness when he won’t even speak to her? 

When the girl who broke his heart buys a month of dates at the firefighter’s Hunk-for-a-Month fundraiser auction, only honor keeps widower Jake Hansen from backing out of the commitment. He won’t let the firehouse down, even if it means enduring a torturous month with Naomi Whitehouse. And Jake knows being close to Naomi again will be torture. Even after all these years, she still gets to him…not that he intends to let her know it. He’ll be civil, honor his obligation, and with any luck Naomi will tire of playing small-town pastry chef and Jake will never see her again. 

But as the month passes, Jake and Naomi discover some fires never burn out. Will the heat between them be enough to melt away the pain of past mistakes, or is their second chance doomed from the start? 

Fans of Bella Andre, Kristan Higgins, and Susan Mallery will love the Summerville romance series, stories featuring sassy Southern women and the alpha males who love them.

Playing for Love at Deep Faven by Katy Regnery

Violet Smith and Zach Aubrey have history...
...the kind of history he regrets and she wishes she could forget.

She was the girl. The only girl. Ever.

Nine years have passed since heavy-metal songwriter, Zach, slept with, then walked away from, his best friend, Violet. But that doesn't change the fact that he's never gotten over her.

He shattered her heart.

Despite the years that have passed, chick-lit novelist, Violet, vividly recalls the pain of Zach's rejection, and hates that she's never been able to completely let go of the brooding boy who turned his back on her.

When the rocker and the writer find themselves thrown back together in a strange twist of fate, their chemistry is just as scorching as ever, but old wounds don't just disappear. Even if Zach can explain why he walked away from Violet, can she find the courage to trust him again? Together they will discover if a love that broke them both is worth a second chance at forever.
