“Banks’s debut marks the start of a promising urban fantasy series, something like Ghostbusters with a British accent.” – Publisher’s Weekly
Kester Lanner didn’t know what to expect when he followed his mother’s dying request to contact the mysterious Dr. Ribero, but he wasn’t expecting to find his long lost father. Nor was he expecting to join the family business: catching supernatural spirits.
Kester is intrigued despite his fear, and finds himself drawn into an ancient ghost story that will test the entire agency.He soon becomes enmeshed in a struggle with the spirit, who is so malevolent and haunting that his first real case might just be his last.
Luke Pardini is many things: playboy, tabloid fodder, ridiculously attractive billionaire. He’s the Prince Charming every woman dreams of.
And he wants me to be his fake girlfriend.
I don’t want a relationship, even a make-believe one, but I do need the money. Writing isn’t paying the bills, and I hardly have time for a second job, let alone a romance. But he’s offering me a dream-come true.
I’ll get the fancy dresses, the formal dinners, the full Luke Pardini experience. I get to be Cinderella for a few weeks, then I’ll trade in the shoes. No problem, right?
Except I don’t have to pretend when he touches me, but he’s made it clear I only get to play his girlfriend for a few weeks. When midnight strikes, our Cinderella Arrangement is over.
He promised the arrangement would be simple.
I promised I wouldn’t fall in love.
Author’s Note: The Cinderella Arrangement waspreviously published as Break and Crash. The books have been re-edited and some elements of the story changed. Both stories are standalone novels with HEAs.
You’d never suspect by my elven appearance, but once I was a man, a Celt to be precise. I had a mother, father, and a sister to look after. I hunted game in the wilds and fought battles to defend my homeland.
Now, what am I? Who am I? I don’t know anymore. People of this realm call me a monster, a murderer for the things I’ve done. I live hidden in shadow, exiled from a world which fears the very mention of me…a world so different from my own.
You may ask, why do these vile acts? I have no choice. My master controls my blade and bears it mercilessly down upon the innocent. She, and others known as Reapers, dominate this world with a malevolent hand, cursing and ending lives on a whim.
Today, she sent me through the barrier which imprisons us all – even our Reaper overlords. How’s my passage possible? I’ve no notion. Mayhap the answer lies with the human I have been sent to retrieve. Whatever the reason, it cannot bode well. If these malefic beings ever broke free, nothing would be safe from their bloodthirsty dominion.
In a place she doesn’t belong, in a time that is not her own, a shattered woman risks everything for the one thing she’s never had—love.
When Kinley Chandler abruptly lands in medieval Scotland, there isn’t much she’s leaving behind. With her body shattered and her military career over, Kinley has resigned herself to death. But in the past, all that changes.

Trace and Eva’s story:
My name is Eva Morales, and I was one step away from being homeless when Trace Walker came into my life. I want to hate him because of my past, but I end up making what I consider a “devil’s bargain” with the arrogant young billionaire instead. Really, I have no choice. It’s either take the work he’s offering or starve, and I’ve been hungry long enough.
I didn’t think being his fake fiancee for the holidays would be a difficult job, but it ends up more complicated than I ever imagined, and I see a whole new side of Trace once he lets his guard down. He’s haunted by his past–just like me, But there are things I can never tell him, secrets I don’t dare reveal.
Eventually, I find myself in a difficult situation because our volatile attraction to each other won’t be denied. Should I tell him the truth, or do I finish the job he’s paying me for and walk away with my secrets still hidden, my pride still intact? He’s paying me enough for this job to take care of myself once it’s over. I’ve always been alone, and I always thought I preferred it…until I met Trace. I’d have to put everything on the line to be honest with him, but he very well might be the first man who is worth the risk. Honestly, I’d be endangering more than just my pride. I could handle feeling like a loser, because I’ve pretty much felt that way my entire life. What really terrifies me is being vulnerable and the possibility of ending up with a shattered heart….

People look at Alexia like she must be as ditzy as her counterpart. One day when Alexia’s photo filters through the Internet, she’s offered a job as Kari’s double.

Alexia can’t resist the siren call of fame. Who could say no to Hollywood, hot guys, and . . . um, did we mention hot guys already? She flies off to L.A. and gets immersed in a celebrity life.

Publishers Weekly has called Janette’s YA contemporary romances “Hilarious.”
Donja Bellanger, suffering after the death of her father, finds herself in dire straits when her mom takes a new husband. Forced not only to move to a strange city, but to share a room with her glamorous, new stepsister, Makayla Hampton, her life spirals out of control.
Makayla lures her from goth to glam straight into an exclusive club, not only for wealthy elites but Immortal Descendants. Donja crosses paths with Torin Mancini and he’s too damn handsome to be real.
Torin, who has concealed his identity as a powerful ancient sprit known as an Iridescent for eight hundred years, sets his eyes on Donja; there’s something about her blood, something he can’t walk away from. He’s not alone. A deadly predator has picked up her scent.
Stalked, she reaches out to Torin, but the lure of her blood has him on edge. As Torin battles his heart desires and feelings he thought buried and gone, one thing is clear: they have as much, if not more to fear of each other, than the predator who would have her life.
Is love enough? Can she accept him for what he is and better yet, can he control his hungry, hungry eyes?
A beautiful love story with relentless action, elite battles and steamy moments… unforgettable!
