by Edie Ramer

Only 99 cents for a limited time.  Get it now!

A kitten saved her…

Broke, pregnant and deserted by her boyfriend, Maddie Barrymore swerves to avoid a kitten while driving in a Wisconsin blizzard—and her life takes another turn. Like Puss in Boots, she stays in an empty house. She has the baby, the kitten, gets a job and a degree…yet every day she’s ready to flee if the real owner shows up.

Five years later, he does…

Dumped by the woman he loves, film producer Logan MacLeesh’s heart is as dark as one of his movies. He plans to hole up in his grandmother’s old mansion and throw himself into his work…until he discovers the sexy squatter and her four-year-old son. Before he can call the sheriff, Maddie’s tale of how she ended up there entertains him. They make a deal that as long as she tells him a story every night, she and her son can stay. Even the cat, though Logan’s always been a dog person.

A dog in need of saving…

Far away in another state, a homeless dog lifts his head, sniffs…and smells him. The human who’s meant for him. As he heads through the snow toward the scent, his journey seems impossible, even though it’s Christmas, a time when miracles happen.

FFbundle200Texas Firefighters Bundle

by Amy Knupp

A Collection of three Texas Firefighters stories

From award-winning author Amy Knupp’s Texas Firefighters series, three sexy heroes and the women who win them over come together in this bundle of romance stories (two short stories and one novella).

“Author Amy Knupp has captured this reader’s heart with her emotional and heartfelt novels. Her characters make you feel like a close friend and her small-town charming cast makes the reader want to visit…. I am certain you will want to read more from this outstanding author.” —Donna Zapf, 

Impulse (approximately 53 pages):
Wild nights are a thing of Dr. Sawyer Culver’s past—and a rare thing, at that. So why, when he’s on the verge of finally doing his family proud, does he make his most impulsive mistake yet?

Salsa dancer Mariah Jackson lives to the beat of her own drum. A self-professed flirt, she’s never been one to set her sights on any specific man. Until Sawyer bursts into her life…and her bedroom. Now it’s up to her to convince him to embrace the life he really wants.

Slow Burn (approximately 55 pages):
Zoe Griffin has a fresh new life…a hard-earned doctorate degree and a burgeoning nutritionist practice in Colorado. The only thing missing is the man she fell in love with.

Cooper Flannagan did “new life” ad nauseum as an Army brat and shudders at the very mention of change. His fellow firefighters on San Amaro Island, Texas, are his family. He’s dug his roots deep, and he finally feels like he belongs. Then Zoe walks back into his life…and sometimes, it turns out, there’s more than one path to belonging.

Fire Within (approximately 111 pages):
Environmental engineer/architect Sophie Alexander’s life blueprints have always centered on being solo, professionally and personally. Thanks to a less-than-stellar (aka majorly dysfunctional) family, she trusts no one and prefers to be alone…until she nearly dies alone.

Firefighter and eternal bachelor Nate Rottinghaus falls for Sophie the minute he lays eyes on her—while rescuing her from a burning building. Her defenses are down, but are his feelings enough to help her move beyond her past and embrace the fire within?

And they call it puppy love!

When Jack falls head-over-paws for cute and cuddly Jill next door — that creamy coat, those soft brown eyes, and, yowza, those long legs, he simply cannot help himself. Bing, bang, boom, a few weeks later, Jack has some ‘splaining to do when that cute female is with puppies. Jack’s going to be a father, trouble is his lady love’s owner Owen McKay and his owner Callie Lassiter need a little shove into love. Being a large and in-charge Great Dane, that’s no problem for Jack. With a little cooperation and a little matchmaking, some nudging, whining and puppy dog eyes, hopefully, everyone will live happily ever after together.

Corporate lawyer Drew Hudson has better things to do then take on this ridiculous lawsuit, but since he works for the client’s husband, he has no choice. After meeting the beautiful, sweet-tempered owner, he can’t keep his mind on the silly case. But when the client turns up dog gone dead, Brooke may be a conflict of interest when she’s charged with the murder. All Drew wants to do is prove that this sexy entrepreneur is not dangerous, except to his heart.

Can she take a chance on him?

Dark Horse 250px heighDark Horse

by Michelle Diener

About Dark Horse (Class 5 #1):

Some secrets carry the weight of the world.

Rose McKenzie may be far from Earth with no way back, but she’s made a powerful ally–a fellow prisoner with whom she’s formed a strong bond. Sazo’s an artificial intelligence. He’s saved her from captivity and torture, but he’s also put her in the middle of a conflict, leaving Rose with her loyalties divided.

Captain Dav Jallan doesn’t know why he and his crew have stumbled across an almost legendary Class 5 battleship, but he’s not going to complain. The only problem is, all its crew are dead, all except for one strange, new alien being.

She calls herself Rose. She seems small and harmless, but less and less about her story is adding up, and Dav has a bad feeling his crew, and maybe even the four planets, are in jeopardy. The Class 5’s owners, the Tecran, look set to start a war to get it back and Dav suspects Rose isn’t the only alien being who survived what happened on the Class 5. And whatever else is out there is playing its own games.

In this race for the truth, he’s going to have to go against his leaders and trust the dark horse.
