Rook Security: Complete 5-Part Series


Camilla Blake - 2018
    Rook Security then comes in, spiriting her away to shield her from the ruthless criminals seeking to kill her and her campaign against ivory smuggling. That’s when she meets him again—the charmingly awkward jock who never gave her the time of day. She knows he’s just being paid to protect her, just doing a job that any meathead with a gun can do… so why is it that he makes her feel that everything’s going to be alright? PART TWO Sequence Bone is the ice man of Rook Security—cool, calm, and collected as he watches everything from his high-tech perch. Then she came bumbling and bubbling into his life. His job is to be her eyes and ears, to provide overwatch as she cuts off her ties to one of the most dangerous men in New York. And yet he just couldn’t keep up the frosty mask that he normally wears, couldn’t stop caring about her more than he should. PART THREE Atlas Bone knows what it’s like to suffer, to take all the pain and abuse without being able to do a thing. His laughter, his bantering and blustering—all a façade he learned to build up over the years. That’s why he recognized the signs when he first lays his eyes upon the little waif of a woman: eyes deep with despair, flesh sunken from chronic hunger, and bruises in all the right spots. He wanted to give her a small gesture of kindness, help make her life a little easier while soothing over his long-forgotten wounds of the heart.But the past has a way of catching up with everyone... PART FOUR Moreau Davy may smile for the cameras, pose for the fans, and dazzle the paparazzi. Deep inside, however, he pines away for a woman he knows hates him. Better to keep her at arm’s length, play the role of stupid celebrity, than to risk losing her altogether by confessing his feelings for her. And then someone decides to kill him… or at least tries to. Savannah Georgia hates the spoiled, egotistical clients of Rook Security—especially this one self-important Hollywood hotshot. He brings in the money on the regular though so she grits her teeth and plays the part of bodyguard. One failed assassination attempt later, and she finds out that the man called Moreau Davy isn’t as invincible—or as intolerable—as she once thought him to be. PART FIVE Javier Rook gave her all the space she needed—even if meant signing the divorce papers. He ignored the screams of his soul, of the love he lost, all for the sake of her happiness. And so he endured, steeling his heart against the pain. If it was for her sake, he would stoically take anything and everything that comes his way. Someone out there, however, wants to make sure that Javier never finds happiness ever again. And what better way to make a man suffer than to destroy that which he loves most?

Wolfsbane Investigations


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.
