April Shadows

APRIL HAD ALWAYS FELT LIKE AN OUTSIDER.

Her older sister Brenda was tall, athletic, competitive, and sure of herself. But April Taylor was short, sensitive, and overweight — and she couldn’t bounce back from their father’s cutting criticisms the way Brenda did. April didn’t know why their once-loving dad had become a coldhearted monster, but she was sure it had something to do with her. And she could see how his cruel behavior was tearing away at her gentle mother. But a glimmer of happiness returns when Brenda brings home her college roommate: beautiful, bewitching Celia. And April wonders if she might not be so different from Brenda after all….

Driven from the Dumas Mansion back to her beloved bayou, Ruby‘s only hope is that fate will let her begin anew…

Living again in a humble shack, Ruby is determined to make a secure and happy home for her precious infant daughter, Pearl. Paul Tate — her first love, whom she was forced to abandon — is at her side once more, now a man of dazzling wealth. When he whisks her into his grand house, it seems their future is assured. As mistress of Cypress Woods, Ruby can forget even the shocking reason she and Paul must wed in a secret ceremony and remain husband and wife in name alone.

But the thick, expensive walls of Cypress Woods cannot shut out the terrible memories that have woven their fabric over her destiny, or the cold eyes of Paul’s mother, Gladys, reminding Ruby of the secret she must keep to give Pearl a loving father. Then her venomous twin sister, Gisselle, arrives to taunt her with news of Beau Andreas, the true father Pearl has never met, and the only man Ruby will ever long for with all her body and soul, Desperate to find the complete, fulfilling life she craves, Ruby builds a precarious new existence, a flimsy shanty of hope that the first flood washes away. Only when the storm exposes the very blackest evils of the past will she glimpse the rainbow’s fragile promise, a morning of sunshine and laughter with a family of her own….

A Werewolf in the North Woods Vicki Lewis Thompson

A Werewolf in the North Woods

When she used to walk around her grandfather’s property out­side Portland, Abby Winchell loved the idea that Bigfoot was somewhere out there too. Now her grandfather swears he’s seen two creatures that fit the legendary description—and he has evidence. Sort of. Grandpa Earl may be a bit dotty, but when his neighbors invite a renowned anthropologist to disprove his theory, Abby decides to send the man packing…until she sees how hot he is.

Anthropology professor Roark Wallace can’t risk news be­ing made of a Bigfoot sighting in the north woods—not with a local pack of werewolves to protect. Disproving the evidence should be easy, but ignoring Abby is not. Her fiery red hair makes him want to sit up and beg, and this obvious attraction is making the pack suspicious.…

Wanted!  Vicki Lewis Thompson

Wanted!

Photographer Dominique Jeffries has come to Wyoming to find herself — her creative self, her sexual self. After escaping the engagement from hell, she’s dying to break loose and live a little. And seducing a shirtless, sweaty cowhand looks like just the place to start.

Nick Chance isn’t exactly a cowhand but, hey, he’ll be whatever the lady wants! Only he soon realizes that this is more than just a quick roll in the hay.

There’s something about Dominique that calls to him, something about her that completes him. There’s only one problem. Dominique wants a fling, not another relationship.

Little does she guess how easily she’ll be persuaded to take a Chance — again and again and again!

Truly, Madly, Deeply Vicki Lewis Thompson

Truly, Madly, Deeply

Ten years ago, Dustin Ramsey and Erica Mann shared their first sexual experience in the back seat of Dustin’s red Mustang. And the interlude was…a complete disaster. Now Dustin is facing a huge challenge – taking over the family business. But before he does, he has to get past his one and only failure. His plan: to find – and seduce – Erica again. Only, this time he’s got to do it right…

Erica is amazed when Dustin shows up on her doorstep. True, he has a business proposition for her, but the look in his eye tells her what kind of proposition he’s really offering… Erica has come a long way in ten years. Her newsletter, Dateline: Dallas, has gained her a reputation as the Dr. Ruth of the Dallas area. So if Dustin thinks he can just walk in and seduce her senseless, he’d better think again. Because Erica intends to seduce him first…

Talking about Sex... Vicki Lewis Thompson

Talking about Sex…

It’s Katie Peterson’s job to be a mouthy DJ, but being mouthy just got personal. Jess Harkins has started construction on a sixty-story office tower next to Katie’s quaint local radio station. She’d hate his building anyway who needs another high-rise? But Katie especially dislikes having her view blocked by the guy who turned down the chance to be her “first”. So it’s time for a little payback…

Jess always got a laugh at Katie’s irreverent on-air comments. He’d even thought of asking her out…for old-time’s sake. But no Katie’s barbs are directed at him – implying that any man driven to build a structure this high is obviously compensating for something…Jess has only one thing to say to Katie, and it isn’t something he can just phone in. It’s time to turn the radio off…and turn Katie on!
