Since he can’t trust his siblings in the house without a chaperone, he has no choice but to take them with him. Instead of an office building or a quiet death, Redmond finds himself at a rave in a rough neighborhood … and none of his charges will stay in the car. It’s a typical Grimlock adventure, with Aisling going missing and tripping over trouble while Redmond has to find her, collect a soul, and stay out of jail. It’s a night full of antics … and maybe a little danger. It might be one for the Grimlock record book, which is well and truly something given the trouble that always seems to find them. Note: This is a 30,000-word short set in the Aisling Grimlock world. It’s set back and can be read at any point in the timeline.

Wound Tight

When Justin takes a job at the Gradsky Ranch, he immediately locks horns (and lips) with the sexy, sassy Calliope—a 22 year old cowgirl set on seducing him. Reminding her of their age difference doesn’t deter Calliope; neither does Justin’s warning that she deserves more than a busted-up former rodeo cowboy. From the moment Calliope Morgan encounters the hot-as-fire new ranch foreman, she knows his gruff manner is an attempt to mask his attraction to her. But she’s never backed down from a challenge, especially not when Justin’s actions speak louder than his denials. Calliope doesn’t give a damn that he’s older than her or what others might think of their relationship. The uptight cowboy needs to relax and she’ll do whatever it takes to loosen him up, proving there are no age restrictions when it comes to lust…or to falling in love. **Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story.
