Rowdy Cooper was born into a family of cops, and he loves the family business. Then, one night, everything changes. He is shot in the line of duty and forced to retire. Depressed and a little lost, he moves to a sleepy little Montana town called Mount Haven. But, will the move prove therapeutic or lethal?
Bailey’s on the run. She landed in Mount Haven and fell in love with the peaceful little town immediately. She keeps to herself and reveals nothing, but her sharp mind and secretive nature has attracted the attention of the Cooper brothers. One is her new boss — the other the town sheriff, both are too perceptive.
As Rowdy struggles to rebuild his life, Bailey wrestles to keep her secrets hidden. But dangerous men are on the hunt… and Bailey is the prey. Suddenly, two sadistic conspirators emerge from the shadows united by one common goal; reclaim the woman that slipped from their grasp — and this time, there is nowhere safe to hide.
Tony Nazario is a successful businessman, a loner with a gypsy spirit, and a sucker for a woman in need. When he moved to Mount Haven, he didn’t expect to meet a desperate and fiercely independent woman that would change his life forever. Immanent death? Yeah, she’s worth the risk.
Theresa Regan is in trouble — big trouble — and the threat is more sinister and powerful than she ever imagined. A late-night attack plunges her back into her worst nightmare — a world controlled by a killer. Time is running out. A predator has become impatient. Will history repeat? Or, this time, will the result be fatal for everyone involved.
Some Secrets can be Lethal.
From the outside looking in, Alex Deveraux has it all; a loving family, a business empire, and a bright future. But, the Deveraux family has secrets — deadly secrets. And those secrets have finally caught up to Alex. Caught between two realities, she is forced into a world she never knew existed and a destiny she never wanted.
Grieving the loss of her father only a year after her mother’s death, Alex finds herself in a world she doesn’t understand? She has lived her entire life as a human, oblivious to her true lineage. Her world is turned upside down when her brother — the only family she has left — reveals the family secret. Alex is half-human, half-fae. She is also the reigning fae queen — a title she inherited a year ago when her mother died. Her people desperately need a strong leader to survive because they are at war with the vampires — and the bloodsucking king wants Alex dead. Can she overcome the shock, conquer her insecurities, and rise to the challenge? Or will she die a horrible death — just like her parents? And how will Dimitri, the sexy new warrior leader, play into her future?

Let the Nightmares Begin ...Dare you venture into these macabre worlds created for your ‘entertainment’? Whether or not they are publicly admitted, many of us have a fear or phobia. A phobia is an irrational fear. True terror, on the other hand, can evolve from no more than a belief, or a thought, provoked by a situation, or rapidly changing circumstances. Remember, your thoughts can be your worst enemy, and the better your imagination, the more terrifying your world can become.
