While nursing some drinks after a terrible day at work, Candle spits out his rum and coke when a stranger across the bar turns water into wine. But did he? Or was it just an alcohol-induced trick of the light?

This stranger has a warning for Candle: skip your planned business trip tomorrow. If you go, I won’t be able to protect you any longer.

With a clear head the next morning, Candle resumes his normal life, working for a company that’s about to lay him off. That barroom huckster couldn’t have been magical, or prophetic. He was just some washed-up weirdo with a few tricks.

But when Candle comes back from his trip to find his pregnant wife missing and a dead man’s blood seeping into his bathroom floor, the washed-up weirdo’s counsel doesn’t seem so foreign now.

Cops, friends, family… Candle doesn’t trust anyone. As he searches for his wife, people around him keep turning up murdered. If he can’t find her and uncover the mystery driving the chaos, the stranger’s words might come true, after all.

This novella (the first in the Whistleblower Trilogy) combines the action-packed chase thriller style with an amateur sleuth mystery, all told through protagonist Tucker Candle's unique and funny voice.

WINTERS HEAT

After
putting her life on the line to protect classified intelligence,
military psychologist Mia Kensington is on a cross-country road trip
from hell with an intrusive save-the-day hero. She'd rather take her
chances without the ruggedly handsome, cold-blooded operative who boasts
an alpha complex and too many guns.

Colby Winters, an elite
member of The Titan Group, has a single objective on his black ops
mission: recover a document important to national security. It was
supposed to be an easy in-and-out operation. But now, by any means
necessary becomes a survival mantra when he faces off with a stunning
woman he can't leave behind.

When Titan's safe houses are
compromised, Colby stashes Mia at his home, exposing his secret--he's
the adoptive father of an orphaned baby girl. Too soon, danger arrives
and Mia lands in the hands of a sadistic cartel king with a taste for
torture. As hours bleed into fear-drenched days, Colby races across the
globe and through a firestorm of bullets to save the woman he can't live
without.

GARRISON'S CREED

Nicola is an injured CIA
agent on the run from a failed undercover operation. Her escape plan
shatters when she slams into the man who buried her a decade ago. Cash
Garrison. Her first and only love. Now, sexier than her best memory and
cradling a sniper's rifle, he has questions she can't answer. Why was
she alive? And armed?

Cash is an elite member of a black ops
organization, The Titan Group. He thought Nicola died his senior year of
college and swore off love to focus on a decade of military missions.
But when she shows up behind enemy lines, bleeding out and wielding a
weapon, his heart and mind are unsure how to proceed.

Titan and
the CIA join forces to uncover a mole hidden in a network of
international terrorists and homegrown mobsters, teaming Cash and Nicola
againWhen disaster strikes, Nicola's hidden past makes her the hunted
target and Cash's best kill shot may not be enough to save them.

WESTIN'S CHASE

Jared
Westin knows his reputation and likes it. He gets the job done. No
emotion. No baggage. That's why his elite ops company, The Titan Group,
is better than the best. They complete projects classified as mission
impossible.

And then, in walks a woman as tough as she is sexy. His counterpart in every way, should he choose to admit it.

Ousted
undercover ATF agent Lilly Chase only answers to "Sugar." Jared is the
only man who can see past her leather-and-lipstick demeanor, and that
revelation is terrifying. She was fired for helping Titan on a
questionable arrest she should've ignored, then partnered with Jared's
rival on an assignment in Afghanistan.

Saving Sugar isn't a
normal rescue operation. It pits Titan against its rival, Jared against
his nemesis. Chasing Sugar's heart isn't a simple task, either. She
fights him, fights them, always ready to run. Jared must risk his life
to save her--the woman whose bravado and surprising sweetness has given
him the one thing he never had. Love.

GAMBLED

Brock
Gamble's epic fall from the Titan Group labeled him a traitor, then his
wife walks out the door. Can the couple survive if the only chance of
redemption is a fall further into a world of guns and kidnappings?

CHASED

Jenny Chase and Asher McIntyre: can two hearts on opposite career paths survive while Asher's enemy seeks to destroy them both?

And the biggest question of all. How will Simon react when he learns the truth about who the father of Toni's child is?

Wonderland Creek

I was perfectly content with my life--that is, until the pages of my story were ripped out before I had a chance to live happily ever after.


Alice Grace Ripley lives in a dream world, her nose stuck in a book. But the happily-ever-after life she's planned on suddenly falls apart when her boyfriend breaks up with her, accusing her of living in a world of fiction instead of the real one. To top it off, Alice loses her beloved library job because of cutbacks due to the Great Depression.

Longing to run from small-town gossip, Alice flees to the mountains of eastern Kentucky to deliver five boxes of donated books to the tiny coal-mining town of Acorn, a place with no running water, no electricity, and where the librarians ride ornery horses up steep mountain passes to deliver books. When Alice is forced to stay in Acorn far longer than she planned, she discovers that real-life adventure, mystery--and especially romance--may be far better than her humble dreams could have imagined.

The Man I Love (The Fish Tales Book 1)

One look brought them together. One bullet tore them apart.

Winner of a gold medal in the 2015 Readers' Favorite Book Awards, Suanne Laqueur's astonishing debut novel follows a young man's emotional journey to salvage relationships destroyed in the wake of a school shooting.

As a college freshman, Erik Fiskare is drawn to the world of theater but prefers backstage to center stage. The moment he lays eyes on a beautiful, accomplished dancer named Daisy Bianco, his atoms rearrange themselves and he is drawn into a romance both youthfully passionate and maturely soulful. Their love story thrives within a tight-knit circle of friends, all bound by creativity and artistry. A newcomer arrives--a brilliant but erratic dancer with an unquenchable thirst for connection. And when this disturbed friend brings a gun into the theater, the story is forever changed. Daisy is shot and left seriously injured. And Erik finds himself alone in the aisle, looking down the muzzle of a pistol and trying to stop the madness. He succeeds, but with tremendous repercussions to his well-being and that of his loved ones.

Traumatized by the experience, Erik and Daisy spiral into depression and drug use until a shocking act of betrayal destroys their relationship. To survive, Erik must leave school and disconnect from all he loves. He buries his heartbreak and puts the past behind. Or so he believes.

As he moves into adulthood, Erik comes to grips with his role in the shooting, and slowly heals the most wounded parts of his soul. But the unresolved grief for Daisy continues to shape his dreams at night. Once those dreams were haunted by blood and gunfire. Now they are haunted by the refrain of a Gershwin song and a single question: is leaving always the end of loving?

Spanning fifteen years, The Man I Love explores themes of love and sexuality, trauma--physical and mental--and its long-lasting effects, the burden of unfinished business and the power of reconciliation. Through Erik's experience we reflect on what it means to be a man, a son and a leader. A soul mate, a partner and a lover. What it means to live the truth of who you are and what you feel. What it means to fight for what you love.

Winner of the 2015 Beverly Hills Book Award, a gold medal in the 2015 eLit Book Awards, and currently a finalist in the 2015 Kindle Book Awards.

From Mangia to Murder (A Sophia Mancini ~ Little Italy Mystery Book 1)

Product Description
Little Italy, 1946 - Sophia Mancini would have enjoyed the grand opening celebration of her family’s private detective agency if the volatile chef at Vincenzo’s Ristorante had actually survived the meal. But before Sophia’s chilled spoon hit the spumoni, someone plunged a knife into Vincenzo’s back and the word on everyone’s lips went from mangia to murder.

Sophia soon finds herself trailing crime boss Frankie Vidoni, chatting with his mouthy mistress Maria, and dodging henchman Mooch DiMuccio. She’s suspicious of Vincenzo’s widow, Stella, and his assistant chef, Eugene, because they don’t appear the least bit dismayed by Vincenzo’s passing. There is no conversation Sophia won’t eavesdrop on, no question she won’t ask, and no danger she won’t face to find the killer.

Hail Storme: A Wyatt Storme Thriller

Vietnam vet and former pro football player Wyatt Storme is bow-hunting in Missouri when he stumbles upon a hidden field of marijuana…and is attacked by a vicious dog and shot at by a sniper. He reports violent incident confidentially to the local Sheriff…who is murdered the next day. Storme believes there’s a connection and starts asking questions, unraveling a deadly conspiracy of corruption, drug-trafficking and organized crime… and making himself someone that just about everybody wants dead.

The first novel in W.L. Ripley's acclaimed Wyatt Storme series.

PRAISE FOR "HAIL STORME"

"Cadenced prose, an Ozarks setting, a football-star drop-out hero" and a small-town, drug-related plot add up to a most interesting debut. Tough guy Wyatt Storme, with few sleuthlike qualifications other than athletic principle, divides his time between Colorado and Paradise, Missouri. Having reported the existence of a marijuana field to the local sheriff, Wyatt further involves himself in local affairs when someone then murders the sheriff. A dry-witted bounty hunter, a pea-brained sheriff's deputy, Paradise thugs, and various federal agents make for lively, if not unexpected, adventure. An undeniable treat" Library Journal

"Here's one for the boys who like to kick butt. As much joyful bashing as it is 'Red Harvest' on uppers, though completely innocent of Hammett's dark vision. Fighting the good fight has seldom been so much atavistic fun!" Kirkus Reviews

"Storme is one of my all-time favorite series characters, up there with Spenser and Dave Robicheaux," Ace Atkins, NY Times bestselling author of "Robert B. Parker's Kickback."
