Sight Beyond the Sun

Love Beyond Book 2

by Melody Johnson

Genre: SciFi Romance 

Separating truth from lies is impossible in the game of spies…especially the lies you tell yourself.

A prison break.

Adrenaline junkie and explosives specialist Kinsley “Switch” Morales had a chip on her shoulder long before being caught in what she suspects is some sort of intergalactic human-trafficking ring. Aliens not only exist, their reptilian bodies are stronger, their honed reflexes faster, and their shiny scales nearly impenetrable. But nothing will curb Kinsley’s resolve to commandeer their spaceship and return home to Earth—even if that means crawling behind enemy lines and cozying up to their uncompromising captain.

An undercover mission.

When Raveno Hoviir catches Kinsley outside her cell, wreaking havoc in his control room, he sees more than just her strength, resolve, and courage. He sees a golden opportunity to finally root out the traitor under his command and prove his brother’s loyalty before the coming revolution. After so many years undercover, Raveno is finally one mission away from saving his planet from its tyrannical ruler. He’s sacrificed everything to protect his people—his love life, his anonymity, his left leg—but in his efforts to right his father’s wrongs, has he inadvertently become the very monster he plans to overthrow?

An unlikely alliance.

As Kinsley and Raveno each attempt to exploit the other, they find more than just leverage for their separate missions. Inexplicably, they find common ground in their mutual devotion to family and service. Kinsley knows all too well the grief and guilt of making the wrong decision in the field, but will Raveno keep his word to send her home if she flips loyalties? Is Raveno’s softening heart compromising his judgment, or is Kinsley’s intelligence accurate? Separating truth from lies is impossible in the game of spies. Seeing beyond their surface differences and trusting in love again may be the only way to save both their people—and each other

Beyond the Next Star

Love Beyond Book 1

An intolerable order. A desperate charade. A deadly secret...

Before Commander Torek Renaar can return to active duty, he’s ordered to purchase an animal companion to help relieve his PTSD symptoms. But having been a caretaker for and lost a loved one, keeping even one little human alive is a challenge he feels doomed to fail. It doesn’t help that his animal companion is the newest, most exotic breed on the market, demanding constant attention, daily grooming, and delicate handling. If she doesn’t die first in his incompetent care, she’ll be the death of him.

After witnessing the murder of her domestication specialist, Delaney McCormick allows her new owner to treat her like the pet he believes her to be. If anyone suspects she’s more intelligent than a golden retriever, her murder would be next. She endures the humiliation of being washed, the tediousness of being trained to “sit” and “come”, and the intrigue of hearing private conversations. But in Torek’s care, she finds something unexpected on this Antarctic planet, something she never had in all her years on Earth while house-hopping between foster families: a home.

As companionship grows to love, must Delaney continue the charade, acting like an animal and hiding from the murderer waiting for her misstep? Or can she trust Torek with her secrets, even if the truth threatens everything he holds dear—and both their lives?

Forgotten Storm: Revised and Extended Edition

Storm Series Book 1

by A.R. Vagnetti

Genre: Paranormal Romance 

***The Revised and Expanded Edition***

How many years did I drag my ass from one small town to another, singing and bartending to make ends meet? I've lost count. As a matter of fact, I lost every memory of my life before the age of seventeen. And that's not even the weirdest part. At night, in my dreams, I'm guided by a drop-dead gorgeous, panty-wetting fantasy who makes my body sing and claims to be my Guardian.

When the stunning man miraculously shows up on my doorstep, I don't know whether to jump his bones or shoot him in the head. But the second his lips touched mine; it triggered an explosion of suppressed memories I was better off not knowing. And the things that go bump in the night? Yeah, those are real, and apparently, I'm some prophesied bringer of peace to all the monsters.

Not sure what dickwad wrote that thing, but this girl can't even get through her day without coffee. How the hell does Mr. Tall Dark And Handsome expect me to face off with my greatest fear and embrace my so-called destiny?

We are so screwed.

*** "Forgotten Storm" (Revised/Expanded Edition) is Book 1 of the Storm Series. ***
This is a carefully revised and expanded edition of the novel that was first published in September 2018.

Warning: Intended for mature audiences. Full-length novel. Can be read as a standalone, but for better continuity, it's best to read the prequel, FORSAKEN STORM, first.

Mission: Treachery

Bear's Brigade Book 1

by Emily Mims

Genre: Military Romantic Suspense 

TREACHERY ON THE BATTLEFIELD OF LOVE

Colonel Angus "Bear" Bustamante lives in the danger zone, never knowing which mission may be his last. Being the leader of an elite task force is his passion, and his son owns his heart.

Until Wildcat, a former one-night-stand, arrives at Fort Sam. Bear's heart inflates, and he finds he wants more than a roll in the sheets with the sultry, sexy Dr. Felicia Castillo.

Felicia loves her work and is dedicated to doing her best all the time. With a sworn determination to stay away from complicated men, she finds herself paired up with a rugged, tough-spoken, hard-assed soldier on a sensitive operation that could make or break her career.

No, she hasn't forgotten their night together. She doesn't think she'd forget that night even after she's dead.

But Bear is determined, and more than sex is on the table.

When treachery strikes and accusations fly, the breach between them seems irreparable. It takes a near tragedy, and an incredible sacrifice to mend the chasm between them.

No one said the battlefield of love would be easy.

Emily Mims knows a thing or two about romance. “My husband and I met in 1970 on a college field trip to Mexico when he asked me to smuggle some film across the border for him. The next day he retrieved the film and took me out for the first time. He proposed five days later. I promptly said ‘yes’ and we’ve been a couple ever since. There’s a little bit of Charles, the strong, loving man I married, in every one of my heroes.”

Emily spent many years as a public-school teacher before leaving the classroom to write full time. The author of over fifty romances, she wrote her first book on a dare. “I threw a romance across the floor and swore I could do better. Charles dared me to-fighting words!” She sold her second attempt and has been writing ever since. When she’s not at the keyboard, she sings and plays the ukulele with two musical groups. The mother of two sons and grandmother of six, she makes her home in Texas but loves to travel and especially loves to visit with her grandchildren in Tennessee and Germany.

It’s taken Viking hunter Sven Knutson six frustrating months to find her. To track down the angel responsible for compromising the Forgotten Brotherhood and waking the drakon. She may be clever. Resourceful. But no one ever gets away from Sven. Ever.

All Rivka longed for as an angel was a chance to serve on Earth and help humans. Instead, it all went impossibly, horribly wrong, and she still doesn’t understand how or even 
why. All she knows is that she’s on the run—not only from Heaven’s dangerous elite guard, but also from the Brotherhood, who want answers.

She might just have to trust the immortal Viking whose icy blue eyes make her feel almost wickedly human. Because someone wants Rivka dead and the Brotherhood eliminated.
