Things only intensify and then a body is found in town that threatens to bring down the firm. Will Cooper help keep Sonnie’s head above water or will they all sink together? BRANSON Elizabeth Shore made the simple mistake of going back to work late one night. Instead of getting her work done, though, she caught her boss spread eagle on the conference room table with a stunning man between her legs. Freaked out, she fled the scene before being spotted. No one seemed any the wiser about what she’d seen and things went back to normal. Until she saw the man’s face in the newspaper a few days later. Dead. Branson has his hands full. He’s working on a case for a local celebrity and trying to figure things out with another brother from SEAL Team Two. The last thing he needs is the seemingly ball-buster Elizabeth on his back.

Sure, he’s refined his act some, but he still eats over the kitchen sink and doesn’t put the toilet seat down. He’s not big on prissy ladies, either. He knows women like Charlotte are too much work. But with Branson working another case and the guys all tied up, worrying about Mercer, when Charlie’s stalker gets too close for comfort and her manager decides to play it up, Tucker has no choice but to become her full-time guard. VINCE Vince Hart is no stranger to killing men. There’s something dark in him that feeds on it. He’s bored with civilian life and lives life a little like an adventure junkie.

He figures he’ll just live until he dies and be better for it. He’ll never have to lose anyone like Luke again. He’s broken from it. MERCER Mercer Dunn has spent time in prison before. One much worse than whatever they could offer in their sleepy little town. He still won’t go back, though. On the run and away from all the family he’s ever known, he ends up at the little hunting spot that Luke kept hidden away while he was alive. With his skills, he could easily hide and live out the rest of his life there. He’d have everything he needed but the one thing he seemed weak to. Lauren. She was all wrong for him. She was his brother’s baby sister. They’d rescued her from bad places more than once.

More than 400,000 words. NO CLIFFHANGERS. UNWANTED MATE I don’t want to feel this pull towards Mika Bright and feel the lust that overtakes me when I smell her.

I shouldn’t look at her and want her and I damn sure should not give in to her demands for a mating but she has something I need and if I have to mate her to get it, I will. That doesn’t mean I will love her even as I take her body and it sure as hell doesn’t mean I want her heart. Or do I? RELUCTANT MATE The problem with being a liar and a cheat is that before you know it you don’t recognise yourself anymore. I’ve spent my life lying, living in a world where other people don’t really know the real me. I’ve lied to myself, my friends and the one female who I should have claimed years ago. Beebee hates me, for good reason. She doesn’t trust me, for good reason. She wants me, because I make her believe that she should. Now it’s up to me to decide if loving her is worth the risk of losing my freedom and risk losing myself once again when things fall apart. UNLIKELY MATE I’m a mixed breed shifter who has both bear and wolf within my blood. I am dangerous, big andscare the females in my own pack. I prefer solitude and I keep to myself because I doubt that I will ever be lucky enough to find my Fated, my true female, the one who will complete me. When a car breaks down on the side of the highway that borders my pack and the land I guard the last thing I expect is to see the smallest human female staring back at me. The very last thing I know is that she definitely can never be mine. Even if I know it’s true. DESTINED TO MATE I’ve killed. I’ve lied. I’ve stolen. I’ve committed every unspeakable crime that you can think of and I haven’t regretted it once until the day Julia Silverton comes for me. She’s my Fated, my one but I don’t want her. I can’t. She’s good and I’m, not. She’s love and I’ve hated for so long I don’t know what that means anymore. She wants me. Needs me and I will save her but I will never give her my heart. I can’t. She’d break me.

Salt & Stone is a continuation of the Elemental Origins Series by award winning and USA Today Bestselling Author, A.L.Knorr. The Siren's Curse Series is best enjoyed if readers have read Born of Water and/or The Elementals. INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR: Q: What makes your writing special and different?A: I write cuss-free, no on-page sex fantasy stories featuring strong female protagonists, and themes of love, friendship, the environment (because its something I care deeply about), while delivering a fast-paced adventure. I’ve been told my writing is very cinematic and that readers can watch it play out on the screen of their mind in full-colour as they read. My Elemental Origins Series is non-linear, meaning it doesn’t have to be read starting at book 1, you can pick up any of the first 5 books and dive in because they all take place simultaneously.I believe its an authors job in today’s world to nurture empathy, help the reader live another life and feel what its like to be in someone else’s shoes. I try to write as believable a fantasy world as possible, with characters who value life and care for one another. My antagonists are often somewhat faceless for part of the story, providing mystery, and they are also not ‘just bad guys’, they’re people with their own world view one might understand, even if you don’t agree with it. Most of all, I just want to tell a great story and make readers feel something - I’m told I do a good job at that. Q: Aside from Salt & Stone, what other books do you write, and what order should I read them in? A: I also write the bestselling Elemental Origins Series that chronicles Targa and 4 other girls as they venture beyond the borders of their Canadian home and experience transformational supernatural summer adventures. I recommend reading Born of Water before reading Salt & Stone. If you like Melissa Meyer, Tamora Pierce, Leia Stone, Jaymin Eve, Cassandra Clare, Lauren Kate, Stephenie Meyer, Becca Fitzpatrick, or Michelle Madow, you will LOVE AL Knorr’s storytelling! A.L.

Becki Willis - 2018
She thought that a successful career and a comfortable life in the city were enough to be happy. Did she really need to know about the woman who had given her away? Adopted at birth, her first few years were happy. It hadn’t mattered that she didn’t know her heritage; she had parents who loved her and wanted her. But divorce, and then death, ripped their tiny family apart, and at the tender age of six, she entered the foster care system. Over the next dozen years, she shuffled from home to home. Finding her roots seemed an impossible dream. But dreams are resilient. An unexpected discovery awakens old yearnings of belonging to a family, of being part of something bigger than herself. Finding the brief, ambiguous note from her birth mother is enough to unfurl the ribbons of hope still binding her heart. Her quest takes her to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and the heart of the Plain community. Aided by her unique eye color, a healthy dose of luck, and the private investigator she hires, Taryn finds her birth family easily enough, but finding the truth is another matter. In all her musings, she never imagined a scenario where her mother might be Amish. She never imagined that the fabric of her life might be a patchwork of faith and fear, stitched together with a dark family secret. Taryn is determined to trace her roots, even if it means digging in the mud to do so. Now she’s caught in the quicksand of a shocking discovery and the consequences of choices made, almost forty years ago.

B.J. Bourg - 2018
Ditching his paddle for a pistol, he rejoins the Mechant Loup Police Department, but this time as their chief investigator, and he works beside Police Chief Susan Wilson as they seek to solve the mystery in the canal. While it isn’t odd to find drowned bodies floating in the vast waterways of Louisiana from time to time, it is unusual to find a body with six bullet holes in its back. This first case back for Clint won’t be a walk in the park, but a blue truck and a single piece of paper might be the key to everything. The only problem? The truck has seemingly vanished into thin air and no one can find the piece of paper. BUT NOT FOR NAUGHT The only thing worse than being stabbed in the back is being shot in the back; and that’s exactly what happens to local bar owner Mitch Taylor. As Clint Wolf and Susan Wilson investigate, the list of suspects begins to grow and it includes the victim’s estranged wife. Just when it appears Clint is closing in on the killer, things takes a surprising turn and the entire complexion of the case is changed. As though the twist in the case weren’t enough, Clint finds an old photograph that turns his personal life on its head and sets him on a dual quest for answers. Not only is he interrogating suspects, but he also interrogates his mother, and he begins to wonder what will be more difficult—discovering the secret to his past or solving Mitch Taylor’s murder. One thing is certain…no one will be the same after this is over. BUT NOT FORBIDDEN The only thing Clint Wolf and Susan Wilson want to do is get married, but when a man is murdered in a most embarrassing way--shot to death while sitting on a porta potty--their wedding plans are placed in serious jeopardy. With only eight days to go until they say their vows, Clint and Susan go to work trying to find out who might want to kill the victim. There are a number of likely suspects and they all seem to have good reasons for wanting the man dead, but Clint and Susan must figure out who hated him the most. As they work their way through the evidence in search of the truth, they are unknowingly headed for a deadly confrontation. Before it's all over, bullets will start flying and people are going to die...and if they're not careful, one of them might not make it to the altar.

I’m not the suit wearing, flower-buying guy you take home to meet the parents. I’m not the guy who will make you feel all warm and fucking fuzzy inside. Not anymore. I was boyfriend material once. Would’ve even made a good husband. That was before everything good in my world got ripped away, leaving me broken beyond repair. These women come to me because they need an escape to cope with the real world, but none of them know I need it more than them. I need something to make me feel alive. Something to get my heart beating again. Then Cami shows up in my hometown, broken-hearted and pissed off at the world, needing an escape from her cheating ex. She’s the only one that doesn’t want to use my body. In fact, she wants nothing to do with it and has no problems telling me so. She’s interested in one thing only from me—to move into my rental property. But the problem with that is the more we fight, the deeper she buries herself in my soul. Sex material is what I’m good at, but for the first time, it may not be enough.

But stepping in for her sister when it’s clear that Ava and Evan aren’t fooling anyone with their “romance” isn’t really dating.

Clara Kendrick - 2018
It's a good thing the big bad shifters of Wolfsbane Investigations are ready to step in and make sure things don't go too far off the deep end. Book 1 I’ve spent every vacation that I can remember in a tiny town in Colorado called Pine Valley. Great shopping, top notch skiing, and the best social scene a girl could ask for. I pretty much wrote the book on how to be a “snow bunny”. But this year someone got bold enough to steal my jewels right out of my safe! Fortunately for me, hot investigator Dawson Ames is here to save the day. Sort of. Okay so Dawson is just about as hot as he is cold. But I can win him over. I just hope I can do it before things get any weirder. I’m beginning to think that there’s a whole lot more to my fave vacation spot than skiing. Book 2 If I have to smile at one more spoiled snow bunny and try to sell her jewelry she doesn’t need, I’m going to scream. My name is Callie Pearson and I’m just trying to make a living in a town populated by rich people enjoying their winter vacations. Then a simple shoplifting call gets turned into a huge scandal and my boss hires Owen Ames to investigate the loss. All I know is that he’s tall, dark, and scary. Not only that but I’m the number one suspect! It’s going to take all my brains and twice my charm to figure this one out. Fortunately for me Owen has enough charm for both of us. It’s a good thing too. This is more like a scene from Hollywood than a tiny ski town and I’m not at all ready for primetime. Book 3 I’ve come to the Pine Valley ski resort with one thing in mind—to make a deal that will secure my career for years to come. When Jade King sets her mind on a deal, it gets done. That’s my reputation and I’m not about to screw that up. Unfortunately for me, my impromptu stalker doesn’t necessarily agree. A quick call to Wolfsbane Investigations brings a guy named Aaron Ames to my door and suddenly there are weird things happening all over the place. I can’t tell if this guy is going to keep me safe or walk the line between safe and something else entirely. But maybe that’s what I need since the past and the present are on a collision course and I’m stuck right in the middle. Book 4 I’m a psychic and save your comments because I’ve already heard them all. My name is Celia Rivers and I’m not sure what’s going on in Pine Valley, but the energy has become so overwhelming that I’m almost afraid to try and do a simple palm reading. Something big is going down in this town and the local witch coven is trying to cover up whatever it is. At this point I’ve got no choice but to team up with whatever supernatural entity is willing to take this bull—or possibly demonic entity—by the horns. Of course that means I’ve got Vaughn Ames on my tail. He’s big. He’s intimidating. He’s also super yummy. Book 5 Most people come to Pine Valley for the skiing. I’m here to search for answers. Answers about my family. Answers about my past. And apparently answers about why the hell I’ve spent my life wearing a stone around my neck that doesn’t even belong to me! But when I begin to discover who I am and what I’m destined for, I meet a man named Zane Ames. He’s looking for my moonstone. He claims that it belongs to him. But I’m not letting go without a fight. So if he wants to bring it, I’ll consider myself challenged.

Dead Drift Frank Bennett investigates three puzzling crimes in these short mysteries with big twists. In the Christmas mystery “Chainsaw Nativity,” Frank’s relentless pursuit of the thief who stole the Joseph statue from the town’s Nativity scene brings him up against the limits of compassion.
