Royally Tricked

Romantic Comedy

A daredevil prince wants to pay me mega-bucks to train him to hold his breath underwater for ten minutes? Sign me up.

Except I’m a magician, not a stunt consultant. My record-beating dive without air was a trick. Of course, I can’t tell that to my client, the royally hot Anatolio Cezaroff, a.k.a. Tigger. Not if I want to be able to pay my rent.

Also, I’m not exactly comfortable around germs. All germs, including those lurking on uber-attractive men. So falling for my gorgeous client is out of the question, and I fully intend to keep my distance.

That is, until he offers to train me in bed.

NOTE: This is a standalone, raunchy, slow-burn romantic comedy featuring a movie-obsessed, germaphobic heroine who’s dying to be a famous magician, a scorching hot Ruskovian prince who loves to live on the edge, and two oversized dogs who may or may not have caused said prince’s wardrobe malfunction. If any of the above is not your cup of tea, run far, far away. Otherwise, buckle in for a laugh-out-loud, feel-good ride.

Out of the Frying Pan

An MM romance about new starts and taking a chance.

When Dean was unwittingly outed as gay at his previous fire station, things became uncomfortable. So when he heard rumours of a station that welcomed everyone without exclusion, he jumped at the chance of a transfer. The trouble with moving was that he didn’t know anyone, and he refused to become a burden by accepting daily invites from his boss. Finding Nourris Moi was a stroke of luck, and it soon became his haven.

Oliver’s dream of owning a restaurant had come true, and after three years, he was finally turning a profit. Nourris Moi was his life, and he had no time for anything else – so he’d been told. When a certain firefighter became a firm fixture at one of his tables, the quiet and reserved newcomer caught his attention despite his determination to focus on his business. Someone strikes out at him, and he’s left clinging to what could’ve been.

When everything appears lost, Oliver finds out who has his back and who doesn’t.

Julia and Van found one another in a shaken snow globe. Stranded in a blizzard, they embraced being two individuals with no last names. The plan was to walk away from each other with no regrets—until that plan changed.

Julia’s life was delivered a staggering blow the day she discovered her fiancé’s infidelity. The night she met a handsome stranger, one who showed her the possibility of a life filled with more than the fulfillment of expectations, she took a chance.

When it comes to business, Donovan Sherman is a wolf—a bloodthirsty carnivore who leaves wounded prey and victims in his wake. He learned from the best, his onetime nemesis and now-mentor, Lennox Demetri, who showed him that opportunities are only ripe for those willing to risk it all, a lesson Donovan took to heart.

With Julia McGrath, Donovan must decide if this beautiful woman who showed him the meaning of red sin will fall victim as his prey or if after experiencing the unbridled passion, there is more that he wants.

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new age-gap, family saga, chance meeting, contemporary romantic-suspense novel in the world of high finance, where success is sweet and revenge is sweeter.

Something is changing my body.

Something that should have never happened.

Something that my husband and I had prevented from happening.

Something people say is miraculous.

The bigger I get, the more frequently I encounter people who become possessed. And the more often I wind up questioning if I am carrying a miracle baby.

The closer I get to the due date, the more I love this child and the more confident I am that I will protect my baby from anything.

Even its fate.

DNA Demons N Angels contains violence, swearing, and sex scenes.

The Virgo Paradox

Science Thriller

The year is 2029, and U.S. President Bill Riley has more problems than he knows what to do with, including Russia, China, environmental collapse, and yet another pandemic. Then NASA drops something new on his desk: an interstellar visitor that promises to change the world forever. This science-based thriller offers an inside look at the global effort to avert catastrophe before time ends.

A wonderfully written thriller that passes with flying colors the threshold of scientific plausibility. It expands our imagined horizons for what other actors on the cosmic stage might be doing. Here’s hoping that a favorable version of Johnson’s fascinating story will materialize in our future.” Avi Loeb, best-selling author of Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth

Pitlochry and the Road to the Isles

Non-fiction, History

A picturesque journey in the Highlands of Scotland from Ben Vrackie along the quiet shores of Loch Tummel and Loch Rannoch, the mountains of Schiehallion and Meall Garbh reflected in their sill waters seems like a innocent meander through the peaceful scenes and wonders of nature.

But it was not always thus. Slaughter, bloodshed, Viking invastions, heartless evictions; the creachs of the Children of the Mist and the atrocities of the Wild Men of Rannoch tore this area apart as it struggled to survive the blood hounds of the chief of the Clan Campbell and the sword of Butcher Cumberland during the long, dark, Jacobite years.

But despite all that there was good. People who changed a way of life, an attitude to life, life itself – whether it was for the good or to the detriment. Retrospect reveals how dedication or passion can make a lasting legacy – can make history.

ONCE UPON A MURDEROUS DELUSION

Psychological Thriller, Crime Fiction

The year is 1980 in a small, sleepy New England town. Out of nowhere, a series of devastating murders threaten the safety and well-being of the community. A serial killer has begun a deadly game of catch-me-if-you-can with local police, who have dubbed the carnage, “The Mommy Murders.”

Frightened residents are certain the violent rape/murders are in some way connected to the psychiatric unit of Parkhirst General Hospital. Nella, a nurse angst-ridden by her service during the Vietnam War, is new to the area and the hospital. She joins the tight-knit group of nurses on the evening shift. Val, the leader of the group, with her own history of trauma, believes it stems from the prejudice their patients suffer from a community unsympathetic to mental illness. Or is evil closer to home than they think?

Kurt, the investigator assigned to the case, and Val’s husband, must deal with town politics, but he convinces the police chief to call in the FBI, who support Kurt more than his own department. Can the police stop the cunning killer as he continues to terrorize the community and murder young mothers?

Content Warning: Please be aware this book includes profanity, offensive language, explicit violence, death (murder, suicide), and issues of mental illness.

White Nights

Contemporary Romance

“A one-sitting, unputdownable read that will have your pulse racing from start to finish.” ~ L.J. Shen, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

One of the wealthiest Russian oligarchs, Alex Volkov is as ruthless as he is magnetic. He always gets what he wants, and what he wants is me, in his bed.

He’s the kind of trouble every woman should run from. The bullet his bodyguard took for him proves that.

I should stay far away, but for one night, I give in to temptation. Before I know it, he’s pulling me deeper into his world of excess and violence, invading not only my life but my heart.

How much trust can I place in a man so dangerous? How much do I dare risk for his love?

My Fierce Second Chance

Contemporary Romance

Gillian and I were supposed to get out of this town together
But I f*cked up and she left me behind
I’ve spent the last twelve years trying to prove she made a mistake
I got my shit together and built the top home security agency on the east coast
Now she needs protecting, and I’m the only one she can turn to

“Would you cover for your cousin if he did something wrong?” she asked.
“No.”
“Even though he’s your cousin?”
“No matter who he was.”
“What if it was me?”
I pushed back my barstool. The scrape of the legs on the tile floor made Gillian wince, then her eyes widened as I came around the island.
“It’s just a question,” she managed before I put a hand down on either side of the counter, trapping her against it.
“It’s not just a question, Gillian,” I said, staring down at her. “Are you telling me that you knew what your ex-husband was doing? That you’re complicit?”
Gillian shook her head. “No, of course not. But…just…what if I had, and I asked you to cover for me? What would you do?”
I had no f*cking idea, but I said brutally, “I’d drive you to prison myself.”

I don’t know if she’s innocent or guilty
All I know is she’s back in my life
And I’m going to protect her no matter what
Even if it’s from herself

HOT Storm

Romantic Suspense

She changed her name. Her look. Her location. But what if running away isn’t enough to save her?

Physical therapist Scarlett Reed is looking for a fresh start when she takes a job in another state. Her rules are simple: don’t get close to anyone, and flee at the first sign of danger.

Wounded soldier Malcolm McCoy plans to work hard in rehab so he can get back to saving the world. He isn’t looking for a relationship, but something about prickly Scarlett intrigues him more than it should.

When she needs a place to stay, Mal offers her the apartment over his garage—and finds it nearly impossible to keep his hands off his sassy, sexy neighbor. Scarlett knows she shouldn’t get involved, but a little friends with benefits action can’t hurt.

Or can it? Someone in Scarlett’s past circles closer, waiting for a chance to strike. Mal will do whatever it takes to protect her—but it might not be enough to survive what’s coming…

As soon as they think they’ve weathered the storm, they’ll discover it’s only beginning.
