Darwin Winters, reluctant pet psychic, is determined to leave her family’s paranormal past behind and lead a normal life. So she strikes out on her own and opens up a new pet boutique in St. Pete, Florida. When a local homeless man she befriends is found dead, and the police assume it’s a suicide, Darwin has no choice but to use her gift to help collar the killer.

She adopts his grieving mastiff, Karma—and with the dog’s help—tries to piece together the events of that fatal night. Accepting the visions is one thing, but can she solve the mystery without revealing her powers to the jaded, yet drool-worthy, detective in charge of the case?

The Starlight Club: Goodfellas, Mob Guys & Hitmen (Starlight Club Series Book 1) by Joe Corso and Marina Shipova

CAUTION:
THE NAMES HAVE NOT BEEN CHANGED TO PROTECT THE GUILTY

The Starlight Club was jumping . . .

“They looked like mob guys. They had that arrogance exuded by those who liked to intimidate – those who were the proud purveyors of fear.” Amidst the nightly gaiety was the back room, where business deals were made, hits were ordered, and territories were divided.

Trenchie is just released from his ten year prison sentence. A new life is waiting – complete with envelopes of money and a steak house to call his own. He finds the woman of his dreams who brings along ex-husband baggage. Hit man Jimmy The Hat finds unexpected fame in the most unlikely of places, yet he always stays true to the “boys”, especially Big Red. “Crazy Joey Gallo” and his brothers break away from the Profaci family and go “rogue, on their own now. They split their gang into several small groups and spread them out over the five boroughs.”

Mark of the Loon (Gen Delacourt Mystery Book 1) by Molly Greene

Madison Boone is keen to buy a fabulous stone cottage in the country and she nixes her budding relationship with Coleman Welles to do it. But once the renovation begins, the property’s long-buried secret threatens to derail everything. Can her friends help solve the mystery?

Want to know more? …
What happens when a single workaholic falls in love with an old stone cottage in Northern California? In Mark of the Loon, Madison renovates and sells property in addition to her busy real estate sales career. Her work-centric lifestyle leaves little time for anything beyond business and her three wise, hilarious friends. When Madison buys the Blackburne’s former house, a series of mysterious events both endanger her and lead her to love – and a permanent home. Mark of the Loon is the skillful combination of history, mystery, and romance in a novel that explores choices, taking risks, dealing with loss, deep, satisfying, unconditional friendships – and introduces Genevieve Delacourt as an impressive amateur sleuth!

What people are saying:
Molly Greene’s stunning debut novel, Mark of the Loon, is a glorious read, with brilliant descriptions and pitch-perfect characterization. I loved spending time with the four smart, wise, fun-loving women at the center of this novel. As I read, their gorgeously developed friendship made me wish I could climb into their world and join them. With Mark of the Loon, Molly Greene has established herself as a remarkable new voice in contemporary fiction. ~ Terri Giuliano Long, Author of the bestselling novel, In Leah’s Wake

Reviewer Aya Walksfar says: “From the time that Mallory Blackburne hears “the thunderous boom of metal striking wood…” this mystery captures the reader. Romance and mystery without the need for graphic sex or graphic violence; just a great read!”

Reviewer Lisa Mack says, “…a mystery that doesn’t devolve around murder, peopled by smart women who are figuring out things for themselves, who have personal issues that don’t center on whether they’re overweight or pretty or…whatever. The main characters are all fleshed out and real, with real people problems. And well edited to boot!”

Reviewer Susan Goldin says, “Molly Greene has a gift which spins a tale that keeps you in the dark until the dawn slowly rises and reveals a landscape of unexpected proportions. Ms. Greene is very good at defining characters via their actions and dialogue. The dialogue is so well crafted the reader feels they are sitting in an armchair or at the table with those in discussion instead of reading words on a page.”

Contact Us: A Jake Corby Sci-Fi Thriller (Mysterious Events Book 1) by Al Macy

On May 22, 2018, every person on Earth sneezes. Simultaneously.
Hours later, an alien spacecraft appears over New York City and broadcasts a dire message of impending doom. The future of the human race will depend on the whims of a solitary extraterrestrial who appears in the form of Walter Cronkite. Yes, that’s right, Walter Cronkite, the deceased news anchor.
The alien has some nasty surprises for the residents of Earth, and the race is on to figure out his true motives and the meaning of the sneeze event–before it’s too late.
I truly enjoyed the story from every perspective. As the challenges mount and the danger increases, the characters react in different and believable ways. Even the alien has a distinct personality, adding additional flavor to the already engaging tale. Macy has masterfully weaved together the characters and plot into a satisfying adventure you won’t want to put down. — Allison Maruska, Author of The Fourth DescendentI enjoyed this story and the characters. It had some great humor in it, but managed to maintain its thriller status also. I would definitely recommend this book to sci fi fans everywhere. — S.K. Gregory, Author of Trickster

Jerked: A Stepbrother Mob Romance (City Series) by B. B. Hamel

~~Standalone novel! Launch price ends soon!~~

My future stepbrother. My personal bodyguard.

Colin Blake is a mob a**hole. He’s rude, crude, and loves a good fight. He’s arrogant, self-assured, and won’t hesitate to take what he wants.

And we’re stuck in the same house. All because my psycho ex-boyfriend is chasing me down and won’t stop until he steals me back.

Worst of all, my stepbrother bodyguard treats me like a prisoner, and I’m supposed to act like I’m not staring when he walks around in just a towel. The truth is, I hate him for jerking me around when were younger, but I still want to taste his lips whenever we talk.

I can’t stand it.

I hate that I need his help. I hate that I want his body.

Even with the mob ready to go to war, all I can think about is his cocky grin driving me insane.

Jerked contains mature content (explicit sexual situations, violence, and mature language), and is recommended for audiences 18+.

Jerked is a standalone, full-length novel. No cliffhanger.
