Leashed

Jack has some ‘splainin’ to do!

That’s right! Callie Lassiter’s normally well-behaved Great Dane Jack has run off and done the wild thing with the neighbor’s dog. It must be puppy love! It’s doubly embarrassing since she’s a professional dog trainer. Of course, the neighbor would have to be hot, hot nightclub owner bad boy Owen McKay, just the kind of man Callie is determined to avoid.

Owen’s comfortable with his playboy status and the hype in the media. But the ground moves beneath his feet when he gets an eyeful of the girl next door. The Dog Whisperer never looked this good! How can he convince this wholesome honey that his player days are behind him? Maybe Jill, his Great Dane can help him with this dilemma now that she’s pregnant and Callie’s dog is to blame.

Is this bad boy a bad bet?

Beware of dogs, romance and deep belly laughs!

Going to the Dogs is a romp through the urban jungle of New York City to find true love, the perfect cocktail, and expensive heels. Dog is a man’s best friend, but sometimes a woman just needs a hot man in the city. This series will appeal to a mature crowd, especially fans of Sex in The City.

When virtual reality takes over, it’s hard to tell the difference between what is real and what is a part of a game. Having all memories of life before The Game erased, Tack’s experience is altered when a glitch infiltrates her world. After her partner disappears, infected by the glitch, she is forced to find answers to the mysterious Game malfunction to determine if he is alive. Her home, partner, and game are seemingly destroyed. Glitched herself, Tack embarks on an adventure to unfamiliar and new worlds, including the largest Fantasy role-playing game, Fantasia. However, this glitch isn’t like anything else the Gaming world has experienced. With no one respawning and the Game’s Production team in a communication blackout, the lines between what is virtual and what is real are blurred even further. If Tack can’t stop the glitch, she risks more than just losing her partner forever—everything she knows and loves might disappear. “A surprising and engaging Lit-RPG adventure set in a future where gaming was so evolved (or decadent, depending on your point of view) that humans were employed as avatars… kept me involved in both the game world and the mystery.” —Readers’ Favorite
