Dr. Tyler Gentry had it all planned out, but the death of his parents in a plane crash changed everything. When he discovered his father had left him a mountain of debt, piled on top of his own student debt, the offer from Dr. William Hall to join his group of surgeons seemed a perfect solution. But the night before he was to start, Tyler received a call that told him to get out while he could.
Despite the salary and perks, Tyler found a curtain of mystery surrounding the surgical group. The only thing that made it worthwhile was the lovely operating room nurse, Ashley Wynn, with whom Tyler seemed to make an instant connection.

Stella Hunter’s adopted son was born with a curse. The curse lies dormant within him and the amulets that awaken it have been destroyed, but the curse is still a death sentence shadowing Gabriel’s life. Stella discovers Gabriel can be free of the curse forever. But the golden scroll holding the incantation that can free him was lost twelve hundred years ago.
It’s why, almost a year to date from the time Carter braved a horrible blizzard just to be able to knock on Stella Hunter’s door, the two are following a trail again—this time searching for a mysterious scroll that a few unreliable historians documented in the course of time. The incantation seared into the gold or calfskin scroll (no two historians can agree on the medium) is a powerful tenet, thought to be capable of removing all curses, ancient and modern. Stella clings to her belief that she’ll be able to find the lost scroll. She’ll then read the incantation seared into it by the Almighty’s hand and the Peacetaker curse will dissipate. Carter thinks she’s being insanely optimistic, but follows in her footsteps because more than one life depends on his protection. He’s not wholly convinced that the eight year old boy Stella adopted is the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, but as a father who lost his teenage daughter to tragedy, he’s still struggling with guilt.
In this fast-paced, action packed adventure, nothing is as it seems and everyone Carter and Stella come across, seems to be wearing a mask…that seldom remains in place long enough for Carter to figure out whether they’re facing a friend or foe.

A page-turning debut novella in the tradition of Daniel Silva, Mark Dawson, and Robert Ludlum, The Renegade Spy is the story of a deadly and maverick female German Intelligence agent, tasked with saving the life of the German Chancellor from a ruthless assassin.

Not even her bodyguards are a guarantee of safety. All they know is that the Scorpion leaves a trail of dead bodies in his wake.
Captain Sophie Decker of German Intelligence rapidly becomes Meyer’s only chance of ultimate survival, along with her colleague, Lieutenant Wolfgang Schmitz.
Decker and Schmitz are given an order – stop the Scorpion by any means necessary – before the Scorpion gets to the chancellor.
