Friendless and destitute, Miss Violet Carlton has no choice but to seek work in London’s most notorious brothel, The House of Pleasure. She steels herself for her ultimate ruin at the hands of her first customer, only to be offered a reprieve in the form of a position as the gentleman’s mistress—in name only. Grateful for his benevolence, Violet agrees to the proposition and enjoys the life of a pampered courtesan—until her dashing rescuer puts her heart in jeopardy. Violet’s growing desire for the gentleman must be squashed when she discovers he belongs to another woman.
Tristan, Lord Trevor enters the House of Pleasure bent on a final night of carousing before donning the leg-shackle of marriage. To his shock, he recognizes the woman in his bed as a lady of the ton and resolves to save her from life in a brothel. After whisking her away under his protection, Tris endeavors to find her a husband, to secure her future and stem his own intense longing for the beautiful woman. With growing anguish Tris fears he can never make Violet his own for the impediment of his coming marriage pales in comparison to the secret he must hide from her or risk her loathing him for the rest of their lives.
Klickitat and other stories (K.A.O.S) features four thriller tales about ordinary mountaineers in the Pacific Northwest thrust into extraordinary circumstances. This debut collection from author Mark Jenkins folds modern day mountain climbing into the speculative wilderness of fantasy, sci-fi, and historical fiction.
K.A.O.S. begins with the novelette Heavywater, which follows a vulcanologist trying to find his way home after a glacier fall in the central Alaskan wilds drops him in unfamiliar territory, without GPS.
In the short story Klickitat, a husband and wife climbing team are confronted by a long dormant stratovolcano waking under their feet, and something else; deeper.
Protectors, is a tale about a solo-climber's life-changing discovery of a powerful artifact at the site of a decades old plane crash in the Olympic Mountains.
K.A.O.S. ends with the novelette Signals: an unlikely pair discover they are the only people in the remote town of Whittier, Alaska not mysteriously put to sleep during a dark winter storm—and must team up if they hope to outwit an armed group of marauders prowling into town.
This is Part 1 of a 4 part novel about a woman born in the backwoods in1900. In those days, women couldn’t vote, drink in public, or speak their minds outside of their homes. Most women anyway, but one thing for sure, Margaret Rose Nolan, wasn’t most women. Born into north Appalachian's piedmont, she knew what she wanted, and it wasn’t to live in the backwoods of Alabama surrounded by poverty and ignorance. She didn't care what women were supposed to do or what others thought of her; she followed a single-minded purpose -- create opportunities for the things she desired. If getting what she wanted required manipulating men, then that was too bad for them. It wasn’t her fault men liked her, but she used it and used it well. In those days, women called her a Jezebel. She called them ignorant. She moved from moonshine to champagne, from rowboats to cruise ships, from foolish foothill suitors to society's elite, usually at the expense of others, even her own children.
Pat Conroy, my first cousin, and I spent time in our grandmother’s ‘big house’ in Atlanta. Pat and I traveled together to Piedmont, Alabama, to research our family history. I spent many summers visiting with the people who knew Margaret when she was young. Much later in life, our ailing grandmother came to live with my wife and me for more than a year. She regaled us with tales of her life. This book is a fictionalized account of her life. She lived the life as told, but just like her, the story has to have some lies and exaggerations, or it wouldn’t be our grandmother.
One night was all we had before Ace left the country. But that was enough to conceive his baby. I thought I’d never see him again – but now he's back and turns my life upside down.
He's a gorgeous soldier on a mission to save the world.
I'm a waitress that's just trying to make ends meet.
Yeah, we come from completely different worlds.
Yet, we share one unforgettable passionate night together.
I give him my number, but he never calls.
Instead, he goes to a war-torn country saving lives.
And now, two years later, he’s back.
A smoking hot firefighter in our small town.
When he walks into the sports bar where we once met, he nearly sets me on fire.
It’s how I feel when I’m with him — safe and protected.
I even wonder if I should tell him that the sweet little girl I take care of is not my niece.
She’s our precious daughter Luna.
The butterflies in my stomach tell me to give our family a fresh new chance –
but then the fear of losing everything makes me doubt if I should ever see him again.
I’ve been burned before. Can I really trust that Ace will stay with me this time?
"One Hot Daddy" is a stand-alone second chance romance, between enemies who become lovers, with a baby surprise and a guaranteed HEA you don't want to miss! No cheating. No cliffhangers. Includes a preview of "Unexpected Heat".
My crappy year just got better.
How much better?
About six feet is my guess.
I got jilted at the altar.
Had to move back home.
To be seen as a child and coddled by my parents.
I’m trying to lay low, but fate has its own idea.
My brother’s best friend, hunkier than ever.
He’s running a bar now, looking like sin.
Off-limits and the juiciest forbidden fruit I ever saw.
He’s easy to talk to and makes me laugh.
But my ex hurt me so bad I’m scared to try again.
Not to mention my brother would be furious.
I’m in his bed and loving it.
Keeping secrets from my family.
It’s all going to blow up in my face,
But I can’t resist him.
When all hell breaks loose over our secret affair,
I find myself keeping an even bigger secret from the man I love.
A secret that could leave me with nothing.

"An assured mystery with an engaging narrator and a distinctive cast." -- Kirkus Reviews

When he is sent to an open-door mental health facility in a small New England village to get his life back on track, his journey darkens even further: someone starts killing the psychiatrists, one by one.
After taking a job tending bar at a local country inn—the social heart of the quirky little town where everyone knows everyone and grudges can last for decades—Coleman unwittingly finds himself at the center of the investigation, even a suspect.
Yet as villagers dread news of more victims and the police come up empty-handed, it is Coleman, and he alone, who discovers the twisted path to the killer’s identity—and the door to a new life for himself.

A banshee without a voice is damn near useless, right?
I should know. I am one. At least, I'm half-banshee, and I'm guessing it's my human half who failed my dad all those years ago, when the vamps arrived and tore him apart.
I tried to call a warning, to sing of death in the way of my kind.
But no one heard my broken four-year-old voice.
Now all these years later, there's a vamp on my front doorstep, begging for help.
And despite the fact that he's the hottest thing I've ever laid eyes on and his blood sings to mine in a way I've never experienced, I remember the past.
And all I want to do is stake him. Right through his cold, dead heart.
But he's asking for my assistance in ridding the world of a supernatural curse.
If we don't work together, this unsuspecting world and everything I know and love could be gone.
Destroyed, just like my father.
And this time, I'm not going to let that happen.
This time, I'll do anything to be heard, even without a banshee cry.
This time, I'll need to climb into bed with my enemy.

I can think of better things Nadia could do with that mouth than argue with me.
Since she’s defending me in court despite the fact that we can’t stand each other.
Her brother is my best friend, and she’s always been his annoying little sister.
Now she’s all grown up, all dangerous curves and smart mouth.
She can help me beat this trumped-up lawsuit claiming I stole an app idea.
If we don’t strangle each other first.
Good news is, we found a way to get along.
Between the sheets.
Never mind that it violates attorney-client ethics.
Plus her brother would kill me.
The chemistry between us is so hot and so deliciously wrong.
Everything about this is guilty,
But I need her to prove I'm innocent.
She's acting suspicious now though.
She has a secret that can make us all go down.
