While tracking illegal immigrants through hidden passageways on Apache land in Arizona, FBI agent Gage Youngblood, stumbles upon a human trafficking operation. Before he can pursue, an unexpected call from Qiana Apachito, his former girlfriend, now heading up the local Indian Affairs Office for the Department of Justice, interrupts his mission.

Stalker vs. Stalker: An Enemies to Lovers Romantic Comedy

FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME! February 6th and 7th only! Investigating Mr. Hawkes was supposed to be easy. Work undercover in his office, catch him stealing company millions, then lock that Herculean himbo away and launch the key into space. I even concocted the perfect excuse for keeping him in my sights: become his sworn office rival. That’s where our mutually malicious arrangement got… complicated. I didn’t mind losing “broadest shoulders” or “fanciest car” to Samuel. I’ll even concede defeat over “best smile-wink combo without accidentally catching our boss Mr. Paterson in the crossfire.” (…I don’t want to talk about it.) But I never thought I’d lose “most fixated on everything about you.” Samuel’s obsessive one-upping is looking a lot more like obsession, period. Who’s stalking who here? And worst of all, why is it all so much fun?

Penny Dreadful

Penny Boudreaux didn’t believe in ghosts…until they started talking to her.

 Ever since her mother’s death five years ago, 16-year-old Penny has had a fascination with death, even opting for part time work at her mother’s old funeral home. Between the stresses of school, work and toxic friends, Penny could use a mother’s guidance. But she never believed anyone could return from the dead.
 Then she begins hearing whispers in quiet rooms and seeing strange figures nobody else can see. And when she meets a mysterious boy named Stephen Campbell, she realizes he may provide the answers she seeks about the Gift she suspects she possesses — the Gift of necromancy.
 With her newfound Gift — and Stephen’s help — Penny sets out to resurrect her mother. But her experience is limited and her patience thin, especially when an otherworldly encounter leads her to believe her mother’s death wasn’t the accident she thought. Now Penny must bring back and avenge her mother without harming Stephen — or herself.
 An equal mix of romance and horror, Penny Dreadful will appeal to fans of Stephenie Meyer and Stephen King alike.

Damaged Cowboy

Why do the best women always have the darkest secrets? I lost it all when I got out of the military—my career, my wife, and my mental health. But with a little hard work on the ranch, I was able to pick myself up, piece by piece, and provide others with the support that I never had. So, when my best friend asks me to help his sister… I can’t help but agree. I mean, this is what I do for a living. But the moment, I laid eyes on her, taking in her perfect, tight body and thick dark hair, I knew I was up for the temptation of a lifetime with this woman. And that’s exactly what I got. This woman is a firecracker, both in her attitude—and in between the sheets. She sets my body aglow with lust the moment she touches me. She’s irresistible and man, the way she feels beneath me… However, Carol being my best friend’s sister is bad, and the fact that relationships with those in my support group go against my policies make it a little worse, but to top it all off… I know she has some dark secrets. There’s something strange happening in our sleepy little town—and it’s not just the fact that she’s taking up a place in my bed that had long gone cold… Someone is in danger… And so is my heart.
