Lost In Christmas: Cherie Marks
Can you lose your heart on the way to finding yourself? Or, more specifically, finding your grandmother? It’s Christmastime, and Sunny Willis, New Falls’ resident librarian and soon-to-be doctoral expert on classical, nude art, can’t locate the woman who practically raised her. Her only hope is the deputy whose very presence makes her heart pound. Can she focus enough to avoid dilapidated police cars, flirty tow-truck drivers, and nosy townspeople so that she can be reunited with her nana?
Bennett Jamison is a fresh addition to the New Falls’ Sheriff’s Office, and he’s got a lot to prove as the newest deputy. When a missing person case arises, he wants to do everything by the book, and hopefully, impress his boss, Sheriff Quentin Taylor. Unfortunately, the girl he’s never stopped crushing on compromises his investigation and causes his thoughts to turn romantic. He needs to get over her and do his job. If she’d just stop being so damn sexy.
In New Falls, Tennessee, people and belongings go missing on a regular basis, but they usually resurface, and everything takes a turn toward love. Can Bennett and Sunny navigate their growing affections and find those who are missing before they get Lost in Christmas?
Hollywood Snowfall: Heather Myers
It's getting cold in Hollywood, so cold, there's a good chance the City of Angels will finally get snow.
Erin Sanders is content with her life. Going to community college and working part-time at the Chinese Mann Theatre fills up the majority of her time, leaving love on the back burner. She isn't expecting her life to change solely because of one movie-goer. But when that movie-goer is movie star and Erin's favorite actor, miracles can happen.
Johnny Barker just wants to see a movie he doesn't star in. He's tired of being stared at, hit on, and ogled by the general public, and if he gets one more question about his love life, he's going to lose it. When the ticket taker at the theatre treats him like a normal person - despite the flattering blush on her face when she recognizes him - he can't help but do a double take.
With the temperatures dropping and snow on the horizon, Erin and Johnny are captivated by each other enough to do the unthinkable: fall in love under the Hollywood snowfall.

So, earlier this year, I got an exciting offer. The all-time, amazing Robyn Peterman, whose books are such sexy, snarky fun, asked if I'd be interested in writing a story in her Magic and Mayhem Kindle World. My reaction: Uuuuuuuuh, 100% YES! I'm such a superfan of her writing. It was an honor to be asked.

Kaia Skipwith is having a very bad
Monday. A reformed thief who has to pull one last job in New York City to save her sister, she must bring some barely-guarded, ancient artifact to the Seagate Building in Manhattan by midnight Saturday, or she’ll never see her sister again. An in-the-bag finale for an experienced B&E expert such as herself. Yet, not more than five minutes into the job, alarms blare and police cars screech
up. She grabs the creepy key with a skeleton emblem—a literal skeleton key—looks up at the door that just appeared in front of her, and gets the strangest feeling that she’ll be safe on the other side of that door.
Zegorie Fay of Clan Montgomerie has taken charge of the Vampire Army, and though he knows his duty, he no longer knows why he fights. War has been raging in Sanguardia for as long as he can
remember. Battle-worn and searching for meaning in his existence, he gets distracted in a most unusual way. The minute he sees her, he knows she’s trouble. For one, she’s the most attractive female he’s ever seen. For another, she’s clearly human, enemy to the vampires and bringers of war. But, above all, he senses something special about her, something…otherworldly. He must possess
“I know you are hungry, Kaia. It’s not poisoned, which is why I took the first bite. I was attempting to show you it was safe to eat.”
He held it out to her again, and with just the slightest hesitation, she flexed toward him and allowed him to feed her, his fingers lingering over her lips before pulling back to get another bite. She moaned as the taste rolled over her tongue. A mixture of savory meat and something like cinnamon filled her mouth, and she chewed hungrily. In the dim light, he looked pleased, with his lips tipped up at the
corners, but she didn’t miss his eyes shining with desire. She needed to be cautious with her own reactions so that he didn’t get the wrong idea.
Again, he offered her a bite with his fingers, and she took it, trying to be careful not to get carried away. The strangest temptation to grab his hand and hold it to her mouth while sucking his fingers slipped into her mind, and she barely resisted acting on such a wild thought. Something was seriously wrong with her.
With the next offering, when she tilted toward him, he pulled the food back from her mouth before she could get the bite, and in a tight voice asked, “The armory is guarded on all sides and impossible to get into. How did you get your hands on that cleaner, Kaia?”
She closed her mouth and shrugged her shoulders. It wasn’t the only weapon she was packing, and from the way the handgun still weighed down her hidden holster, they hadn’t taken it from her
yet. With a cross of her arms, she explained, “I told you, it’s what I do. I’m a thief. I haven’t come across a place that can keep me out.”
He eased the food toward her again, and she took it from his fingers once more, holding his gaze this time as she took her time and licked the juices from his fingers. She pulled back, but his hand seemed locked in place as he continued to stare at her, a look of utter lust in his unblinking scowl. She didn’t know if he’d liked the touch of her tongue exactly, but if the bulge in his pants were any indication, he hadn’t been immune to it.
Kaia Skipwith is having a very bad Monday. She’s a reformed thief who has to pull one last job in New York City in order to save her sister. If she doesn’t bring some barely-guarded, ancient artifact to the Seagate Building in Manhattan by midnight Saturday night, she’ll never see her sister again. Should be an in-the-bag finale for an experienced B&E expert such as herself. Yet, not more than five minutes into the job, alarms blare and police cars screech up, making it look like a complete set-up. Without much thought, she grabs the artifact, noticing it’s some kind of creepy key with a skeleton emblem. A literal skeleton key. She looks up at the doors in front of her, shaking her head in doubt. She could’ve sworn there’d only been three doors in front of her just moments ago. The fourth seemed to pull her toward it though, and as she hears the officers storm through the entrance below, she gets the strangest feeling that she’ll be safe on the other side of that door.
Zegorie Fay of Clan Montgomerie has recently inherited the charge of the battalion to which he belongs in the Vampire Army, and though he knows his duty, he no longer knows why he fights. War has been raging in Sanguardia for as long as he can remember. He’s battle-worn and searching for meaning in his existence, which is surely the reason he gets distracted looking for the female who falls from the sky into the lake beside the encampment where they await the General’s next orders. No one else seems to have noticed this strange sight, so he gives a few orders that gets the camp busy and begins his own scouting mission. The minute he sees her, he knows she’s trouble. For one, she’s an attractive female. For another, she’s one of the human race, which are enemy to the vampires and the bringers of the war. But, above all, he senses there is something special about her, something…otherworldly. He must possess her secrets.
