Only love can heal an impossibly broken heart

There’d forever been a thread running through Trevor Estes’s life—his son, Riley, strong and constant like a heartbeat. But when Riley is killed in combat, everything in Trevor’s life unravels into a mess he doesn’t know how to mourn.

Then Jesse Byrne, Riley’s friend and platoon mate, arrives on Trevor’s doorstep with a box of Riley’s things. Jesse’s all-too-familiar grief provides an unlikely source of comfort for Trevor: knowing he’s not alone is exactly what he needs.

Trevor never imagined he’d find someone who fills his heart with hope again. As the pair celebrate Riley’s memory, their unique bond deepens into something irreplaceable—and something neither man can live without.

But diving into a relationship can’t be so simple. Being together means Trevor risking the last link he has to his son…leaving Jesse to wonder if he’ll ever be enough, or if Trevor will always be haunted by the past.

Darkness Bound: A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance (The Witch's Rebels Book 2) cover
Book Review

“We are, all of us, bound for darkness.”

Ten years ago, my mother was brutally murdered before my eyes. Now, after killing my best friend and kidnapping dozens of other witches, the hunter who stalked my nightmares for a decade is ready to unleash his twisted fury on me.

Good thing I’ve got backup: five strong, impossibly sexy supernatural guardians who’d do anything to keep me safe.

With my rebels by my side, the hunter can’t hurt me. But the disappearance of Blackmoon Bay’s witches has bigger implications, shifting the balance of power and leaving our communities in upheaval. Add in a rogue vampire from my past, traitorous supernaturals wreaking havoc in the Bay, and the innate dark magic I still can’t control, and we’re staring down some pretty bleak odds.

My loyal protectors have helped me face down every threat, and I love them for it—more than they probably realize.

But in the end, there are some battles a witch must fight on her own.

Starting with the ones raging inside.


DARKNESS BOUND is the second book in The Witch’s Rebels, a steamy reverse harem paranormal romance and ...

Uneasy Neighbo(u) rs: Canada, The USA and the Dynamics of State, Industry and Culture cover
Book Review

Regardless of how rich our nations have become, we can't have everything—either as individuals or as societies—but we still do not know what we cannot have. Is it impossible, for example, to have the best, most technologically advanced health care rapidly available to all citizens without bankrupting the average taxpayer? Is it possible to have both a premier national defense and a world-class health system for the entire population? Will a multicultural society become something more than the sum of its parts—or nothing more than a cacophonous jumble: a 21st-century tower of Babel? Through topics such as optics on health care, crime and justice, and substance abuse, Uneasy Neighbo(u)rs hopes to prompt thought and roil some intellectual waters in order to move beyond the hothouse of "Canada studies," with the intent that some light might also result.

Book Review

Sierra Martindale was one of the best P.I.s in the business... until life stopped her cold with one hell of a detour.

For Sierra, risk came with the job, and all risks were calculated to come out in her favor. Until her heart gave out while evading a target.

Following a lifesaving transplant, Sierra awoke with another woman's heart beating in her chest, a new aversion to risk, and an insistent voice in her head telling her the donor's death wasn't an accident.

Sierra sets out to find the truth for the woman who'd given her a second chance at life. But every step forces Sierra deeper into danger—and right into the arms of the haunted widower who loved and lost her donor.

From an incredible new voice in psychological suspense, a novel about the secrets that remain after a final bohemian summer of excess turns deadly.

This taut psychological thriller begins when Karen and her nine-year- old daughter, Alice, pick up Rex from a ten-year stint in prison for murder. Flash back to the sultry summer in 1990s London when Karen, a straight-A student on the verge of college graduation, first meets the exotic, flamboyant Biba and joins her louche life in a crumbling mansion in Highgate.

But Biba and Rex have a complicated family history-one of abandonment, suicide, and crippling guilt-and Karen's summer of freedom is about to end in blood.

When old ghosts come back to destroy the life it has taken Karen a decade to build, she has everything to lose. She will do whatever it takes to protect her family and keep her secret. Alternating between the fragile present and the lingering past with a shocker...
