Now her brother pleads with her to come back to the island of St. Vincent and offer her financial expertise.

Christmas 2014:

Nathan and Mallory McKendrick remember the troubles and triumphs they faced in the early days of their marriage. But their love story is far from over! It’s a story they tell each other often…especially at Christmas.

Winter 1984:

International singing sensation Nathan McKendrick had it all—the looks, the talent, the charisma. It’s not surprising that half the world was infatuated with him! No one more so than his wife, Mallory. The success of their marriage had always defied the odds—and the rumors. Then, suddenly, the bond between them was damaged, and Nathan and Mallory had to choose—fight for the love they still shared or let circumstances destroy it.

In the end, there was only one choice. They had to save their marriage.

And now, every year that goes by, every Christmas they spend together, reminds them that their love is everlasting….

Bestselling Author Collection
Linda Lael Miller


Mark Holbrook was a legend. A tall, rugged, imposing legend. He’d won a Pulitzer, interviewed kings and queens, presidents and movie stars. Carly Barnett, on the other hand, was a former-beauty-queen-turned-advice-columnist. Not exactly on the same level. Still, Carly was determined to prove that she was more than a pretty face.

Mark wasn’t sure the beautiful and spirited Carly had what it took to be a reporter, but he was sure that he wanted her. And Mark never denied himself what he wanted. Only, Carly was far better at uncovering the truth than Mark had given her credit for. And sooner or later she’d uncover the most dangerous truth of all—that he couldn’t live without her.

Stranger in My Stocking (originally published by Ellora’s Cave as a “Quickie” novella)

Janie Taylor has proven herself time after time to be of value to Brick’s team but the mountain of a man refuses to let her join in on a private op that takes them to the jungle of South America.

When Ramón Salvador’s brother told him about Daya, Ramón couldn’t believe she would be the one to heal his heartbreak over the woman he’d lost so long ago.

Ramón agrees to deliver a special basket from the Angels of Mercy to Daya on Christmas Eve, and finds her to be everything his brother had promised and more. Daya can’t believe the way this visitor makes her feel—or how her body responds to him as he takes her beneath the Christmas tree.

Merry Christmas, indeed!

How did life get to be so boring? Kara Marks has a mundane career and a mundane life and wishes for a little excitement—and gets far more than she bargained for.

A dark stranger begins to visit Kara in her dreams. Night after night the man returns and treats her to passion so great she is left wanting and needing every morning. The dreams are so real that she begins to wonder if she’s losing her mind. Soon she learns that not only is the mystery man of her dreams, Adan, flesh-and-blood, but he’s brought very real danger to her doorstep, danger that could mean her life.

Adan Valnez is on a mission to find an important artifact before an evil force obtains it. When he meets Kara, what he locates is trouble in the form of a passionate woman. He is drawn to her nightly, and he can’t seem to hold himself back. He can’t stop thinking of her, can’t stop going to her. Even though he visits her nightly, and passion and lust flares between them, he can’t allow her to remember him when he’s not there.

But when evil finds what it has been looking for—a pendant Kara has had since she was a child—everything changes. Now it’s a race to save the artifact, save a world, save Kara’s life, and to save an eternal love.

There was only one thing he wanted to do before going back to war . . .
It’s been over a year since Marine Lieutenant Trevor Mason and his father have spoken. After nearly losing his life during a Taliban attack in Afghanistan, Trevor wants to end the rift between them so he can return to active duty with some peace of mind. But a visit to his father’s office only serves to show Trevor that his father isn’t as eager to reunite. If not for the intervention of Samuel Mason’s spunky and very sexy intern, Trevor would probably be returning to Afghanistan with his one wish unfulfilled.

She doesn’t know what to make of the hard edged soldier that replaced the smiling teen she once knew . . .
Trevor Mason had used to do all kinds of things to Maggie Sullivan’s insides when she worked at the country club his family used to attend. Five years later, there is little left of the teen she knew in the stoic Marine who only wants some time with his father. When Trevor’s father backs out of his son’s dinner invitation at the last minute, Maggie does the only thing she can: she goes to Trevor’s apartment to deliver the news, but she can’t leave him alone on his one last night before returning to duty.

An act of compassion leads to unexpected pleasure . . .
Thrown together, Trevor and Maggie can’t ignore the sexual heat between them. As they satisfy one set of needs, another slowly develops as passion breathes life into other emotions. Will Trevor and Maggie’s one last night together possibly lead to many other nights in the future?

Grimm’s Circle #8
Shiloh Walker

He is the love of all her lives…

Thomas Finn, troublemaker, gunslinger, guardian angel…loner. More than a hundred and fifty years ago, he was shot in the back then brought back to life just in time to watch a demon masquerading as his best friend kill the love of his life.

Now, as a Grimm, he satisfies his need for vengeance hunting down demons like the ones that took Rebecca from him. His mission: kill as many as he can, then, when the time comes, go down in a blaze of glory. But with each kill, he comes closer to a line no angel should cross.

Her name was Rebecca. Then it was Tilly. Then Ada. Now, Kalypso. She’s lived so many lives, she can’t even remember when or why it started. All she knows is, she’s always searching for a man with golden eyes that make her burn. And when she finds him—as she always does—she knows that spark of joy means she’s only seconds away from death…again.

This time will be no different…unless something breaks the cycle once and for all.

Daughter of the Fallen, Part One
Madeline Wynn

Most sixteen-year olds aren’t worried about the fate of their immortal souls. May Krieg should be.

Typically, honor student May’s biggest problems have revolved around her super-hot arch-rival, Jack. But when a school project takes them ghost-hunting in a local cemetery, she discovers that an ominous force roams in the darkness around her.

And it follows her home.

It claws its way into her life, burning messages into her wall and imprinting them onto her body. Even worse, she can’t tell if it’s trying to possess her… or protect her.

May’s thoughts soon become actions, causing the target of her anger severe physical pain and giving her a rush the likes of which she has never experienced. She quickly realizes that she needs to find a way to reign in this power before she kills someone. May hates the pleasure it gives her, hates herself for hurting others, but she can’t stop.

As her entire world shatters around her, she is forced to ask what her soul is worth— and who would she risk losing her soul to save?
