Meet Denise Baer

I am a Chicago native pulled from the shackles of a 9 to 5 job, and wound up in a small town in Germany to follow my writing dreams. As Gwendolyn Brooks said, “Writing is a delicious agony.” A multi-genre author, wife, and mother of a furry one, I jumped over the big pond into another culture. My writing ideas come from living life. “How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.” Henry David Thoreau. Germany has opened my eyes to cooking, baking, gardening, bike riding, and road trips, but not necessarily in that order. Aside from reading, writing, and watching my favorite shows, much of my time is spent with my husband and our dog, Shakespeare. He doesn’t recite sonnets, but he has a beautiful howl when listening to opera.

All My Nevers

From the USA Today & International Bestselling Author Diana Nixon comes a brand new, dark romantic mystery about giving a second chance to feelings that should never be forgotten. Not all fairytales are bathed in magic. Some are dipped in tears, grief, and blood. And mine? It was submerged in all of the above. Three years ago, leaving San Fernando felt like the best way out of the mess I was neck-deep in. An addict to all things forbidden, I betrayed everyone I loved and watched my little sister pay for my sins with her life. An escape felt like a blessing, so I ran away and left the ashes of my past drift behind me. This is why returning to my hometown was never on the menu. Nor was falling in love with my childhood friend whose heart had been irreparably broken by yours truly. But my father’s death turned out to be a twist I wasn’t expecting, and I had no choice but to come back home, face my demons, and head the family and what was left of my father’s business. My new life was hell on earth. Everyone hated me. And I… I loved the only girl I knew would NEVER be mine. A standalone story that opens Saint No More – a series of romance novels about hate, revenge, passion, and love at a young age evolving into HEA. A PERFECT NEXT READ for the fans of L. J. Shen, Tijan, Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire, Anna Todd, Ivy Smoak & Tarryn Fisher. GRAB YOUR COPY NOW!

A Disturbing Prospect

Whose secret is more disturbing, his or hers? Olivia Someone’s slashed my tires less than a week after I screwed ex-con Cliff back into society. I knew it was a bad idea, but with his dark hair, gentle eyes, and disturbing secrets, I was dying to unlock him. As much as I don’t want to believe it was him, he’s a killer, so what’s a little stalking? With a whole biker club at my back, normally all I’d have to do is say the word, but he just became their latest Prospect. I’ll just have to handle it myself. Cliff After two decades in prison, I might as well be on another planet. Everything is different now, including me. I’ve fallen for the first woman I met, and I’ll do anything to prove to her that I’ve changed, too. There aren’t many prospects for a felon, so I have no choice but to take the first job I’m offered. Becoming a Prospect for my father’s MC comes with all kinds of strings, especially since I’m the one who killed him. And now, thanks to Olivia, I’ve got one more body to bury. A Disturbing Prospect is the first book in the River Reapers MC series, a dark romance with a body count. Some content may be disturbing to some readers.

Ledalina

Ledalina is the reconstructed text of a late nineteenth-century journal, written by an unnamed Dutch scholar, telling of dark and mysterious events that allegedly occurred in Durban just before the turn of the century, parts of which are as upsetting as they seem unusual for the period.

This fascinating journal has been translated to English and made available to the public for the first time since its discovery.

“But what is even more consuming than my fear, is my curiosity. I am still in the possession of Ms Ledalina’s letter, and the only way forward and the only way to ease my mind is to at least solve as much of this mystery as I can from my present position.”

AVENGING ANGEL: Love and Death in Old Brooklyn

A riveting tale of revenge, survival, and redemption, wrapped around an unlikely love story, and set against an urban backdrop marked by bigotry and misogyny.

Following a racially motivated rape by three Ku Klux Klansmen, 12-year-old Cassandra Monroe vows revenge. After eight years of training, now a strikingly beautiful assassin, she accomplishes her mission.

Her campaign continues with solitary walks through dark city streets, hoping to be assaulted by men with bad intentions. Those entrapped by her spider’s web pay dearly for their efforts.

Surrounded by three armed men one night, she’s rescued by Mike Borelli, an Italian-American passerby. A stormy, up-and-down relationship ensues. Ultimately, as her rage matures into purposeful action, and as he begins to see the world through her eyes, they become a team.

Along the way, they encounter serial killers, wife-beaters, actual and would-be rapists, gangsters, crooked cops, a kidnapper and a pedophile priest, as well as numerous women in desperate need of their help. Beneath all the action, though, is the blossoming of a most unlikely love story.
